When his parents get divorced and he’s forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year, but it’s easier said than done.

With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Awardwinning composer Jason Robert Brown, “13” is a hilarious, highenergy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it. Directed by VYT’s producing artistic director Bobb Cooper, “13” opens Friday, January 29th at the Herberger Theater Center and runs through Saturday, February 13th.

If It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol had a gay love-child, it would be Times Square Angel. This limited engagement will run for only ten performances. Tim Shawver and Damon Dering pair up again as only they can, making Times Square Angel bawdy holiday fun for the entire enlightened family.

find her missing son in last year’s moving film “Changling” (2008). In “Invictus”, Clint Eastwood gives us a view of the behind-the-scene life of Nelson Mandela, after his release from prison and his first term as South African President, and how he joined forces with the captain of South Africa’s rugby team to help unite their country. “Invictus” focuses on newly elected President Mandela and the knowledge that his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid and segregation’s slow path to ending. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela forms identification and public relations plan of unification through South Africa’s rugby team as they make their historic run to the 1995 Rugby World Cup Championship match. Conceiving the plan is one thing, making it a reality is the challenge for President Mandela. Morgan Freeman as the president, Matt Damon as the Rugby team captain, and Clint Eastwood’s very apt directorial style including rugby matches is like stepping back into history and observing live.

“Me & Orson Welles”, Review by Stan Robinson As you know, Orson Welles’ movie “Citizen Kane” (1941) is my all-time favorite film, and is considered one of the best movies ever made. Participating in the classic movie were a number cast members from the Mercury Theatre actors during those early days of theatre and radio drama presentations in the 30’s and 40’s. The radio production of H.G. Wells “War of the Worlds” in 1938 brought national attention to the Mercury Theatre players and Orson Welles. “Me & Orson Welles” gives us a view of the movie industry icon of Orson Welles, through the eyes of a teenager (Zac Efron) who is determined to make a go of a life in the theatre. Landing a role in the Mercury Theatre production of “Julius Caesar”, directed by a young Orson Welles (Christian McKay) in 1937, presents both a public and private portrait of Orson Welles early days before “Citizen Kane” catapulted him into the national movie limelight. “Me & Orson Welles” captures the spirit and the essence of a person who some call a genius as a storyteller.

upon while in a bookstore at the time he was looking for something to do instead of Thank You For Smoking. “I saw it on the shelf,” says Reitman. “I started reading it and it spoke to me in every way. I have become more interested in the human experience instead of just being funny. This film has as much as me in it as any film I can imagine.”

Review by Stan Robinson Actor George Clooney is very busy and much in demand since his days of television in the multi award-winning series “ER” (1984). With recent starring roles in “The Men Who Stare at Goats”, “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, and “Up In The Air”, he has Oscar® ‘buzz’ surrounding his name! His characters are interesting and likable. In “Up in the Air”, his character is the messenger who is only delivering the message and he’s quite good at it, while the result of the message does not result in a positive reaction from the receiver! Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is a corporate downsizing expert. In short, is a job that has him traveling around the country firing people. His cherished, empty life out of a suitcase, being very close to reaching ten million frequent flyer miles, and just after he’s met the frequenttraveler woman of his dreams is about to change, his company does the unexpected: they ground him! His company wants to explore other ways of delivering corporate firings and launch their alternate plans. Revelations come all around as the company realizes there’s some aspects to humanity that need the human interaction while he realizes that his lifestyle is not as empty as one would think. Read more on “Up in the Air” at

While based on the novel, there is a lot of Reitman in the movie. “It took me six years to write. The plot is very much my own. I took a character philosophy that I really identified in the book, went from there and made my own film.”

Director Jason Reitman Goes UP IN THE AIR By Randy Montgomery

Jason Reitman may have a famous Hollywood father, Ivan Reitman (Meatballs, Stripes, Ghostbusters) but the 32-year old writer/director has also made a name for himself in the industry. His films have drawn considerable audiences and won over the praise of critics. In 2005, Reitman brought us Thank You For Smoking and in 2007, the indie smash hit, Juno. His latest project Up in the Air (opening in Phoenix on Friday, December 11) is getting Oscar buzz and may garner several nominations. Up in the Air is based on the novel by Walter Kirn which Reitman stumbled

Whether you admire Ryan Bingham’s independence, or loathe it, the character and storyline make you think. “I find Ryan likable from start to finish,” says Reitman. “Sometimes audiences find him likable and sometimes they don’t. It depends on how you view his lifestyle. If you embrace his version of life at the beginning of the film, then he doesn’t come off cold. You go, ‘OK well this is actually my life, I’m on the road all the time.’ There is something exhilarating about being around strangers all the time instead of being around the same people. I empathize with the character. I want to humanize his life as much as possible. I want you to see yourself in the film. I want the audience to think about what they want for themselves.” The stories Reitman picks aren’t by accident. “My work defines me. That’s who I am. I am a director. When a film works, when any story works; it’s a mirror. You simply see yourself in it. I don’t want you to see me in my work, I want you to see yourself.” In terms of Up in the Air, he gets a “…real sense of purpose from the film. I like small, personal films, that’s what gets me excited.”

Starring George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, Amy Morton, Melanie Lynskey, J.K. Simmons, Sam Elliott, and Danny McBride.


Up in the Air stars George Clooney as Ryan Bingham, whose company sends him all over the country to fire people when employers are unable or unwilling to do it themselves. It’s a depressing job, but Bingham has become accustomed to breaking the bad news. He has also become a frequent traveler, who finds solace in being alone. His main goal; to reach the highest level of frequent flier miles available through American Airlines. It’s a lonely life, but he chooses it. The lonely life is tuned upside-down when he is forced to travel with a young new female employee. In addition, a romance blossoms when he encounters another lonely soul (Vera Farmiga) obsessed with VIP status and airline miles.

the Air), it was corporate satire. But as I changed and the world changed, I realized that I kind of needed to be more authentic about the ways people lose their job. We put an ad in the paper and got real people to come and go on camera as people who get fired in the film.”

With the intense buzz surrounding Avatar, one can understand how a film of such magnitude took nearly two years to make. And the cost? An estimated budget of $200 million once everything was captured, wrapped and given final due trimmings.

‘AVATAR’ AN ADVENTURE IN MOVIEMAKING MAGIC James Cameron’s Newest Masterpiece ‘AVATAR’ Set to Change the Way We View Feature Film The way we experience the magic of feature film will soon be forever changed. Enter Avatar, a ground-breaking film that promises to take movie-goers on an entirely new adventure. Set for release on December 18th, the highpowered blockbuster ‘Avatar’ will unveil an entirely new brand of sci-fi adventure, making new claim to the special effects throne. The anticipation and buzz surrounding filmmaker James Cameron’s highly-anticipated film has been a magical event in and of itself. A sort of assured masterpiece feel has already set in for what is projected to be a true ground-breaking achievement in the history of film production. Avatar brings movie enthusiasts the

Among a proud and eager cast of the landmark production are Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver and Zoe Saldana. Terminator Salvation’s Worthington portrays a paraplegic ex-soldier who has agreed to become part of an experiment which in return will allow him to transform himself. He soon enough forms into a mobile avatar of another world, and is relocated to the new planet of Pandora. Made-over-human looks just like the Na’vi who are indigenous to the resource-rich Pandoran planet, which has become of no value to the human race.

while an ex-Marine physician/scientist (Weaver) tries to intervene before the looming crisis. Cameron has proven in the past to be a widely-admired master of groundbreaking and never before imagined sci-fi special effects. All with a distinct overlying theme of heated confrontation among other-worldly life forms in the presence of total destruction. Setting the tone for Cameron’s unique style of filmmaking includes a powerhouse Terminator franchise, Aliens, The Abyss and Titanic, his most recent directorial effort. Titanic of course earned a record $1.8 billion US worldwide and delivered a total of 11 well-earned Oscars. It’s hard to predict whether Avatar will outshine the tremendous success of Titanic, however the time and determination put into his most recent project has seen an intensive 14-year span. One can safely assume the focus and technical approach he has embraced and endured will result in a true force to be reckoned with for many years ahead.

Cameron and his team have completely refined the art of motion-capture to serve a much higher purpose. In constructing a special fusion 3-D digital-film camera designed to reproduce the surreal and hybrid Avatar environment, the final reward should truly be nothing short of out of this world. The Oscar-nominated Weaver, always impressed by Cameron’s over-achieving efforts, was able to share the Avatar experience upon completing the duties of her role. It was clear her nearly two decade wait to reunite with the perfectionist Cameron was well worth the effort. “Well, it was quite an adventure,” she says. “We were in New Zealand in Peter Jackson’s studio with a lot of his crew. It was a demanding shoot, but it was very exhilarating, because we were all doing something we had never done before.” In short, all that’s left now is to sit back and enjoy. There task is complete - and our time to evolve as an audience has arrived.

Worthington’s trans-human evolution soon becomes close with a Na’vi female (Saldana), he’s soon caught in the middle of a looming violent confrontation between Earth’s corporate-backed military forces and the Na’vi warrior clan protecting their resources. The Na’vi prepare to do battle with the humans and their invading spaceships, including the robotic assault units. The transformed human is forced to pick sides,


very latest in the high-tech world of advanced 3-D technology, combined with photo-realistic computer animation and live action blended with motion-capture . A one-of-a-kind film is born, bringing audiences a look and feel that will capture one’s imagination in a hurry.

The Night Owl If you have an entertainment event or item to include in “The Night Owl” send to “The Night Owl” will cover restaurants, clubs, bars, celebrities, music and other miscellaneous events.

BY BRENT DIGGINS AND EFIA MOORE Can you believe that it is already midDecember? Yeah, that’s what everyone is saying; crazy how fast the time goes, huh? On the bright side, since it is mid-December, there are a lot of holiday-themed parties, specials and fun events going on. We have a few of those fun things happening and will throughout the month, so to find out what happened, what’s happening and what will happen, read on. 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest: Over the few years, no matter what age, I awake Christmas morning knowing that one of my presents will be a pair of pajamas. I have no idea what fuels my parent’s pajama gift giving, but I’ve come to expect it as a type of holiday tradition. My only regret is that the tradition doesn’t give me something more useful like one of those annoying Christmas sweaters with 3-D characters and blinking lights, at least I could have used the ugly sweater to win sweet snowboarding gear from Cadillac Ranch’s 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater contest. Friday December 11, starting at 9p.m. the Tempe Market Place hot spot dares you to wear your ugliest Christmas sweater to win a grand prize of a snowboard and bindings package from Utility Board Shop, second and third runners up also have a chance to win Cadillac Ranch gift certificates and merchandise. Ugly sweater attendees can take advantage of drink specials including $5 Red Bull Vodkas, $3 Bud Light bottles, $2 Santa Juice shots and $2 collegestudents-only beer and shot specials from 9 p.m. to Midnight. Bad Santa and the Naughty Go-Go Elf Dancers will also be in the house posing for photos and causing trouble. Check out or follow them on Twitter (@CadillacRanchAZ) for more info. Saltys Annual Santa Brunch and Holiday Festival: My friend was lamenting the other day she didn’t know what she was going to do about a holiday/end of the year gathering for her clients. I suggested she take them out to brunch to enjoy a football game, cutting out the cooking or expensive dinner bill. After thinking about it a little bit more, I wish I would have suggested that she take her clients to Saltys Annual Santa Brunch And Holiday Festival at Salty Peoria’s Mexican Village instead. Taking place on Sunday, December 20 from 10 a.m. to Midnight, Salty Senorita Peoria will host a fun seasonal gathering for kids off all ages. The Mexican Village will be transformed into the North Pole headquarters complete with a breakfast buffet, all day festivities for the whole family, eight tons of snow, and a visit from Santa himself, who will be ditching the reindeer to arrive by helicopter. After enjoying a Mexican

inspired brunch, guests can play in the snow, and adopt a new family member from the Maricopa County Pet Adoption Bus. After 1 p.m. good girls and boys can get naughty with live holiday music from Nineball, Shallow Water, Metalhead. Grab your festive wear and head to Saltys Annual Santa Brunch And Holiday Festival, a fun alternative to the traditional holiday party ho-hum. www. Culinary Hall of Fame: Where are my foodies, my restaurateurs, my chefs? The Arizona Culinary Hall of Fame is accepting nominations until January 1st. There are a bunch of categories like Chef Extraordinaire, Pastry Chef Extraordinaire, and Best Wine List. All of the winners will be named at the Scottsdale Culinary Festival. Anyone is eligible to nominate or be nominated so send your suggestions to Joe Zanovitch, Director of Management & Social Events at Brett Dennon: Want a little music to soothe your soul during the stressful holiday season? Head out and check out Brett Dennon. This guy is amazing (I’ve told you about him before) and has the acoustic/songwriter thing going on. Don’t believe me? Well Rolling Stone named him “Artists to Watch in 2008,” he has been on Letterman, and he has toured with Jason Mraz and O.A.R. The excellent thing is that he’ll be at the Marquee on December 11th with Grace Potter and The Nocturnals. That is a pretty darn good lineup. For more information on him visit Holiday Spirit: During the holiday season, you know we like to encourage you to get into the holiday spirit and do something for those less fortunate; especially in this economic climate. Fulton Homes and radio station KEZ 99.9 have teamed up to host the “Books and Toys for Girls and Boys” Drive, which will go to help out those sick kids over at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Toys and books can be dropped off at KEZ 99.9, Bill Johnson’s Big Apple restaurants, or any one of the Fulton Homes and KEZ events held throughout the Valley. For more information visit and click on the “Fulton Foundation” link. Be safe, be a good person. Till next time…

The recent release of the Grammy Award-winning band’s new album, The Circle, and subsequent world tour, provides a powerful reassertion of Bon Jovi’s commitment to the hard-hitting rock & roll that has been their indelible signature since the band was born more than 26 years ago.

With the grounds of New Meadowlands Stadium as their backdrop, the band’s Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, David Bryan and Tico Torres announced their two-year global trek with an exclusive performance for a group of more than 5,000 lucky contest winners, fan club members and on-site construction workers currently building the venue.

2155 E. University Drive Tempe, 85281 JJ GREY & MOFRO TO PERFORM IN TEMPE! “Out of the swamp, dripping with both wildness and cool. Rich, funky grooves...Grey is a singersongwriter who celebrates life’s most fundamental joys with unforced talent and deep feeling.” –New York Times Down-home roots, rock and soul artist JJ Grey and his band Mofro celebrate the release of their very first vinyl LP, THE CHOICE CUTS, as they continue to tour in support of their latest CD, ORANGE BLOSSOMS. The band performs in Tempe on December 12, 2009. THE CHOICE CUTS is a vinyl-only best-of, featuring two songs from each of the group’s four CDs, as well as a newly recorded version of Van Morrison’s Tupelo Honey.

ORANGE BLOSSOMS features 11 original JJ Grey compositions (and one cover) that come right out of the Southern musical tradition. Following up on the major success of Grey’s previous Alligator album, COUNTRY GHETTO (and the reissue of the band’s first two releases, 2001’s BLACKWATER and 2004’s LOCHLOOSA), ORANGE BLOSSOMS is a groove-driven, soulful masterpiece. In addition to the new LP, a few JJ Grey & Mofro songs (as well as some newly recorded material by Grey) can be heard in the new documentary film, The Good Soldier.

Are You Smarter Than A Nobel Prize Winner?

Let’s face it, most of us think we’re pretty well read and pretty darn smart. But not too many of us have won a Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, and that is why I want to introduce you to Dr. Otto Warburg.

Dr. Otto Warburg 1931 Nobel Prize Laureate Dr. Warburg won the 1931 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his work during the 1920s on the then relatively unknown and mysterious disease called cancer. He successfully identified the root cause of cancer, and discovered that cancer cells, unlike normal cells, thrive in an anaerobic, acidic state rather than an oxygen rich, high pH environment. In fact, he discovered that cancer cannot grow in a high alkaline, oxygen rich environment at all. Think about this for a minute. This means we have known what causes cancer for over 78 years, but if this is true, why don’t we learn this fact in every high school biology class in America? Why don’t the cancer treatment centers, oncologists or cancer related charities shout this knowl-

edge from the rooftops? Why isn’t there a warning from the Surgeon General on every bottle or can of soft drinks or sports drinks sold in America? They are extremely acidic, after all, and can cause great damage to humans by helping to create an extremely acidic environment inside the body. And why isn’t there anything being done to tell every American to alkalize their body before it is too late? The good news is that there IS something being done to spread this news, and even more importantly, I have recently discovered an incredible way to achieve an alkaline balanced body that is simple, fast, and easy!

Change Your Water and Change Your Life! Can it really be as easy to create an alkaline balanced body as drinking a different kind of water every day? Yes! But only if it is the right kind of water, made fresh in your own kitchen every day from your very own powerful water processing machine.

Micro-Clustered for Maximum Absorption and Hydration After passing through one of these amazing machines, your water will be micro-clustered, which means it is the most effective water in the world when it comes to hydrating each and every one of the approximately 70 Trillion cells in your body. The vast majority of Americans are chronically dehydrated, which leads to a myriad of health challenges and concerns.

Every person I know wants to because of the extremely acidic lead a healthy, happy, active life, conditions of our bodies. but many people simply aren’t Alkalize or Die!
