NIGHT OF THE LIVING FEST AT OLD TUCSON Tucson’s All Souls weekend just got a lot crazier, as Night of the Living Fest, a one-day music and art festival invades Old Tucson on Saturday, November 2nd, 2013. Night of the Living Fest is all about the live music! There will be 3 stages, 24 bands featuring such national acts as People Under the Stairs, Meat Puppets, Deerhoof, THEESatisfaction, Bob Log III, NOBUNNY, as well as local favorites Lenguas Largas, The Pork Torta, Golden Boots, Vox Urbana and many more. The bands will be set amidst the beautiful desert landscape of Old Tucson, the historic Old West movie studio and theme park. The entire park will be open. There will be rides, haunted houses, DJs, live mural painting, live screen printing, live record lathe cutting, art installations, a custom-made 9 hole miniature golf course, and all the fun you can pack into one day. Night of the Living Fest is also the official pre-party for the All Souls Procession which takes place the

following day, Sunday, November 3r in downtown Tucson. A percentage of Night of the Living Fest ticket sales will go directly to the non-profit that organizes the procession. Check out the full band lineup at www. nightofthelivingfest.com/bands Buy your Night of the Living Fest tickets online now, and come out and celebrate Saturday, November 2nd. It will be one of the most happening weekends in Tucson all year!

Starting Oct. 16, 2013, on the grounds of the Pima Air & Space Museum, using an iPhone/iPad (and a FREE custom app) visitors will be able to view a hovering WWII Dornier 17 German bomber. The actual plane, the only known Dornier 17 in existence, physically resides at the Royal Air Force Museum in Cosford, England. However, when the newly restored bomber’s interactive exhibit opens, enthusiasts worldwide will be able to view the plane in 3D, hovering in its 1940 glory, over Trafalgar Square and select international air & space museums via the latest technology: augmented reality. Viewing this augmented-reality plane is free with admission at Pima Air & Space for the foreseeable future. “We are thrilled to not only offer this cool new AR technology here in Tucson but also to be collaborating with our sister museums around the world!” stated Yvonne Morris, Executive Director of the not-for-profit Arizona Aerospace Foundation that operates

@YELLOWCABAZ October 16th, 2013 - October 22nd, 2013

Other aerospace museums where the Dornier AR will be visible include: Museo del Aire (Madrid, Spain), Warsaw Museum of Polish Military Technics (Warsaw, Poland), The National War & Resistance Museum (Overloon, Holland), Canada Aviation and Space Museum (Toronto, Canada) and The Air Force Museum of New Zealand (Christchurch, New Zealand). The app, Apparition:Dornier17, runs on iOS6 or later versions. The Android version of the app is in development. According to Merriam Webster, Augmented Reality (AR) is defined as “a live, direct or indirect, view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.”

Experience Arts in the Plaza Fine Art and Jazz Festival, presented by Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance, featuring fine artists, local musicians and kids’ fun “I was intrigued with the mystery of the end result,” stated artist Liz Caris about her introduction into a new art medium. Her vibrant and beautiful, sketch-like tile pieces of art are both aesthetically and functionally appealing – often transferred to table tops or kitchen design. Caris will show her work at one of the city’s most popular art festivals of the season – Arts in the Plaza, Saturday, Oct. 19 and Sunday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free festival showcases fine art from the region’s most exquisite artists and noteworthy jazz performers throughout the charismatic setting of St. Philip’s Plaza, southeast corner of River Road and Campbell Avenue. Caris has been teaching art for more than 30 years. Originally a painter, she stumbled onto the possibilities of tile while working on a fundraiser for her school, explaining, “Working with tile humbles and surprises you at the same time.” She draws the imagery then transfers to a collection of tiles. Next, the tiles are glazed and fired and can be placed

REVIEWERS ROUNDTABLE The following are reactions from each of AZ Weekly Entertainment Magazine’s film commentators in an effort to generate a well-rounded overview of this weekend’s new releases.

‘The Fifth Estate’ Benedict Cumberbatch and Daniel Brühl play men who become underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful and eventually gain access to the biggest trove of confidential intelligence documents in U.S. history. (R - 124 minutes) Stan: Being aware of the subject matter, this dramatic presentation of the still unfolding true events seemed a ‘caricature’ of the true life characters and an empty shell, while the documentary ‘WikiLeaks’ of a few short weeks ago, featured news clips of the actual participants and their involvement. Joseph: “The Fifth Estate” is the worst motion picture of 2013. Director Bill Condon’s new cinematic sleeping pill makes a crucial mistake in assuming that its audience already knows a lot about its incredibly complicated subject and fails to educate, much less entertain.

‘All the Boys Love Mandy Lane’ Amber Heard plays a young woman who is invited by a group of high schoolers to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. While the festivities rage on, the number of revelers begins to drop quite mysteriously. (R - 90 minutes) Joseph: “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane” is both a breath of fresh air and a tribute to classic slashers, playing out in a relatively predictable fashion before finally featuring a delightfully killer twist. It is certain to have inspired the new inclusion of intelligence in the horror genre.

‘Ways to Live Forever’ Robbie Kay plays a young boy with leukemia who embarks on a “scientific investigation” with questions, observations, evidence, reflections and lists of all the things he wants to do someday. (PG-13 - 95 minutes)

‘A.C.O.D.’

‘Big Ass Spider!’

Adam Scott plays a grown man who, caught in the crossfire of his parents’ 15-year divorce, discovers he was unknowingly part of a study on divorced children and is enlisted in a follow-up years later, which wreaks new havoc on his family. (R 87 minutes)

Greg Grunberg and Lombardo Boyar play an exterminator and a security guard, respectively, who are unlikely heroes trying to stop a towering mutant arachnid from rampaging across Los Angeles. (PG-13 - 85 minutes)

Stan: Marvelous ensemble performances present a look that’s void of empathy and angst on a subject matter that many of us may not have experienced in our lives. ‘A.C.O.D.’ provides a nicely paced and insightful 90 minutes that after all is said and done; a delightful feeling of understanding is the reward.

Joseph: Crawling along on eight huge hairy legs, director Mike Mendez’s new creature feature “Big Ass Spider!” may not send shivers down your spine as well as the genre’s classic efforts did, but it will definitely tickle your funny bone as it spins a web of wild amusement.

Joseph: “A.C.O.D.” is quite funny as writer/director Stu Zicherman and his remarkable cast keep things bouncing along at a brisk pace with broad comedy and outrageous situations that anyone can relate to regardless of if they are an adult child of divorce or not.

tragedy through unadulterated eyes turns it into triumph. It is an inspiring story of one boy’s journey not toward death but through life, encouraging us to make the most of each and every day of ours.

Joseph: “Ways to Live Forever” demonstrates that taking a look at

“The studio I have to say, was always very supportive. The notes we got from the studio were good, and even the legal team was quite supportive, even though doing a documentary like this is sometimes and necessarily involving things like ‘fair use’ which are not normally part of the feature film rule book.

Universal gave me final cut on the film.” “Fundamentally it’s a great story about a few individuals who make a huge difference among some very powerful forces. But it’s also about secrets, about truth and lies. It’s about how people get corrupted, about how other people remain strong, and about how we are all being changed by the internet. “If you follow the story, a lot of those things rattle around in your head; the most important thing is following the story of these individuals and this fantastic moment. It’s kind of like a thriller that takes place in the real world, and stays with you long after you’ve left the theater.” – Alex Gibney

RANDY MONTGOMERY

‘We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks’, filmmaker Alex Gibney’s documentary released a short time ago, is a detailed look at the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website WikiLeaks, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history. Director Alex Gibney presents a view that doesn’t take sides as the ‘blanks’ are examined relative to secrets, government, and citizens right to know. Here’s an excerpt from our chat that lasted the better part of an hour.

of those things where even in the cutting room we were following the story because is was still unfolding and there were people who we were still trying to get on camera, so it never really stopped. Your question of what type of resistance from the ‘powers that be’ is interesting indeed. We were trying to fly under the radar while the film was announced early on. I was kind of sorry that it was announced because we were trying to ‘fly low’ and not make too big of a noise because that was very much our hope, that by doing so we wouldn’t be a target.

Randy Montgomery’s reactions reveal the emotional intuition of an average moviegoer. With a master’s degree in counseling and education, Randy grounds his opinions in a unique combination of both a movie’s surface entertainment value and its ability to affect him on an even deeper level.

Currently in release is ‘The Fifth Estate’, a feature film presentation that presents in dramatic fashion, the events of WikiLeaks, an international, online, non-profit organization, which publishes secret information, news leaks, and classified media from anonymous sources. Julian Assange, an Australian Internet activist, is generally described as its founder, editor-in-chief and director.

Bethenny Frankel is so determined to become extremely famous, you want to dislike her. But once you listen to her, that’s not an option. “Years ago, I moved out to L.A. to be an actress,” she says. “I don’t know if I wasn’t talented or connected or confident.” She had a few minor roles, but, she says, “I liked the idea of it, but I didn’t like being someone else, the confines of the script.” Her syndicated weekday talk show, “Bethenny,” is the right fit. She chats easily with celebrities and the audience. Frankel says precisely what is on her mind, which she did while on “The Real Housewives of New York.” At the time, Frankel was not married and didn’t seem to fit in with the others, except for a need to be on TV. Yet she was the show’s breakout celebrity.

Fox’s McCarver looks forward to life after the broadcast booth Weep not for Tim McCarver, for he does not weep for himself. No, the Hall of Fame announcer, who will Tim call his last World Series for Fox beginning McCarver Wednesday, Oct. 23, is more than prepared for life after the broadcast booth. In fact, he’s ready to embrace his new lifestyle after 55 years in and around baseball. “I’m handling it like it’s a celebration, and it’s certainly a celebration of that many years in the game and that many years doing postseason baseball. I’m enjoying every minute of it,” he says, laughing. “I’ve never done this before, and I didn’t know whether you should be melancholy at a time like this or not. But I’m not; I’m not at all.

Take a Stroll with Niccole: TREK sponsored by Arizona State Parks BUTTERFLY TRAIL – MT. LEMMON •

Tubac Presidio State Historic Park, located in Tubac, Arizona preserves the ruins of the Presidio San Ignacio de Tubac and various other buildings, thereby presenting a timeline of human settlement in this Southern Arizona town. October 19th is Juan Bautista de Anza Day. From 8:30am - 4 pm, this annual celebration commemorates Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza’s 1775 expedition from Tubac to the Pacific where he founded a settlement that would become San Francisco. Enjoy a colorful re-enactment on horseback of Anza’s expedition, living history demonstrations, period costumes, dancers, music, children’s activities and food! For more information call Tubac Presidio State Historic Park, 520-398-2252 or the Tubac Chamber of Commerce, 520-3982704. FREE admission.

Sonoita Creek: Established in 1994, Sonoita Creek State Natural Area’s mission is to preserve this fragile riparian area and its surrounding environment. Encompassing a major portion of the Sonoita Creek and Coal Mine Spring watersheds, this is the State of Arizona’s first significant Natural Area. The Natural Area protects not only the endangered Gila Topminnow and several special-status birds, but also historical and cultural relics. Low impact recreations such as hiking, and bird watching co-exist with education and scientific research of Sonoita Creek State Natural Area. Contact the park at 520-2872791.

Tombstone Courthouse: Get a glimpse of the true old West at Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park. Built in 1882 in the shape of a Roman cross, the two-story Victorian structure once housed the offices of the sheriff, recorder, treasurer, board of supervisors, jail, and courtrooms of Cochise County. Today, the 12,000 square foot courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory. The park includes a museum, exhibits, a gift shop, restrooms, and shaded picnic areas. Contact the park at 520457-3311.

The breath-taking treasures of Arizona’s Wilderness are in plenty abundance when exploring and embracing the miles of beautiful terrain Arizona State Parks has to offer. Up every hill, down every bend, around every corner you venture are timeless discoveries one is blessed to encounter, endless sights and settings at every turn that will overwhelm your senses and bring your outdoor spirit to life.

I hiked Butterfly trail last weekend, for the first time. Having lived in Tucson for ten years now, I do lament not hitting this one earlier and it is a popular hike. The weather is gorgeous right now and this trek will be an unforgettable adventure on Mt. Lemmon for many reasons. This trail will surprise and delight you with its natural research preserve, a hard to find airplane crash from 1957, and a plethora of wildlife at every bend. Whilst on the trail we saw squirrels, chip monks, woodpeckers,

mice, horned lizards, and butterflies (of course). It is really an all day trip, and an ambitious hike (no matter which direction you choose). There are many ways to plan it; if you want to go old school you’re looking at a 12 mile out and back trip, many people suggest taking two cars where you can leave one at palisades ranger station and one at soldier camp trail and pick your poison. My partner, Ruben Romero and I left our bikes at the Palisades ranger station and drove up to Soldier Camp. If you decide to go this route the hike will be much tougher with an extra 500 feet of elevation gain but the bike ride back up to Soldier Camp will be much easier and I like to choose my battles wisely. I always watch the cyclists on my way up and cheer them on with a level of respect that I couldn’t describe until I biked one mile of that stretch.
