My first stand for the iPad was a simple picture stand that I spent a few dollars on at Walmart. It served the purpose of allowing me to use my tablet as an expensive alarm clock, but not much else. Thankfully, several companies have released tablet holders that let you do much more than simply propping it up on a table. Here are reviews Chris of two exceptional Pittman tablet mounts that iSpy are worth a serious look.

secure the machine feels when attached to the wall mount. It can be used as a mini-monitor for a bedroom, a secondary monitor for your computer or for a $500 alarm clock. One cool design idea would be to use this mount in the kitchen. You can pull up your recipe data on the machine and go to town without worrying about spilling anything on your grandma’s famous spaghetti recipe. She’ll thank you for that, I promise. The table stand mount works like it sounds. It simply allows you to set the iPad on a flat surface in either landscape or portrait mode.

Breffo’s SpiderpodiumTablet Breffo’s SpiderpodiumTablet looks pretty simple at first glance. The eight-legged holder is simple, but has an array of complex functions. The eight legs of the SpiderpodiumTablet can be moved around to fit any desired need. You can use it in the car, on a plane and even on a treadmill. Anything that has a solid bar going across can be used to hold your tablet. That is the critical key reason of why I love this holder more than any other currently available. It’s small enough to fit in an iPad bag and can serve so many useful purposes. The best example takes us back to the treadmill. I used the SpiderpodiumTablet to mount my iPad across the horizontal bar in front of a treadmill. I then fired up the Netflix application and watched part of a movie while I walked. It helps keep the mind off of the whole fitness thing. Breffo’s SpiderpodiumTablet cannot be recommended enough. It will bend around anything solid while keeping a tight grip on that precious iPad. The product is $35 well-spent and a must-have for tablet computer owners.

It’s great to play loud, just maybe not if you’re working out at a police station. “Hypnotize” by The White Stripes: The raw garage sound of The White Stripes is great to work out to. “Bombs Over Baghdad” by Outkast: A great song to kick the speed up.

Jeff Bridges signs record deal; T Bone to produce

www.bamaescapes.com

By Randy Lewis Los Angeles Times

LOS ANGELES — As an actor, Jeff Bridges followed his Oscarwinning turn as down-but-notout country singer Bad Blake in Crazy Heart with an Oscar-nominated spin as down-but-notout lawman Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. Now comes the news that Bridges will pick up a guitar once more, not bridges for Crazy Heart II, but for an album slated to be produced by his longtime friend, producer and Crazy Heart prime mover T Bone Burnett. Bridges has signed with Blue Note Records and is scheduled to release his major-label debut album late this summer, according to a statement released Tuesday by Blue Note. The project will include songs written by Bridges as well as material from Tom Waits, the late Crazy Heart music supervisor Stephen Bruton, Greg Brown and others. The actor-musician will share vocal duties on some tracks with guests including Rosanne Cash, Sam Phillips and Benjie Hughes. Shortly after Crazy Heart was completed Burnett noted that Bridges and director Scott Cooper were intimately involved with the creation of the original songs used in the film. “Really, Jeff and Scott could get writing credit on these songs, because they contributed so much,” Burnett told the Los Angeles Times in 2009. “Even though I’m not sure they wrote any actual lines, the discussions would become songs. Somebody would say something, Jeff would say, ‘That’s a song’ — that sort of thing.”

Tragedy brings Deftones closer for new album By Kevin C. Johnson St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Deftones had a tough task in front of it as it recorded its latest album Diamond Eyes. It’s the first album the Deftones recorded without its longtime bassist, Chi Cheng, who was injured in a car accident in 2008. But the tragedy ultimately brought the rest of the Deftones closer together. “We appreciate what we have, what we built and the friendships we have,” says lead singer Chino Moreno. “But when something like this happens, it’s a wake-up call to start realizing we’re lucky to have each other.” The band was in the middle of recording an album, to be called Eros, at the time of

Cheng’s accident. But the band mates took an extended break to support their friend. When it was time to reconvene minus Cheng, who remains in an improving but still semi-conscious state, they had a change of plans. “Instead of trying to piece together what we were working on and try to teach someone else, we figured if we wanted to continue as a band we had to rebuild the infrastructure from the ground up,” Moreno says. The band brought in Sergio Vega, known for his work with Quicksand. “Having someone new in the band is new blood,” Moreno says. “He gave us a kick in our step, and that’s a good thing.” Once Vega joined the band, the Deftones hit the ground

running. They’d lost a lot time and needed to play catch-up. They locked themselves in their tiny Los Angeles rehearsal spot for eight hours a day for two months. Usually, they work at a more leisurely pace but figured this time they might “capture lightning in a bottle.” With Diamond Eyes, Moreno says the Deftones go a little left from where they’ve been before, something they try to do with each record. “We never want to re-create the same record. It’s simplified and straightforward. We didn’t get over self-indulgent or experimental.” Moreno says Diamond Eyes differs from what would’ve been on Eros. Those songs “were long and there was a lot of jamming-style stuff, which was fun to do. But it wasn’t as

concise.” In addition to Diamond Eyes, the Deftones are also promoting Covers, a covers album released in conjunction with this month’s Record Store Day. It has songs from Sade, the Cars, the Smiths, Duran Duran and the Cure. “Every time we record a record, at the end of the process we always squeeze in a cover song just for fun. We like to try things people wouldn’t expect from us,” he says. Eros, meanwhile, remains in the vault indefinitely. The band hasn’t listened to the music since Cheng’s accident. “When we do, there were be a lot of emotions. It’s pretty deep stuff, and it’s the last thing he played on.”

New from Emmylou Harris and Holy Ghost! By Glenn Gamboa Newsday

Emmylou Harris, Hard Bargain (Nonesuch) It’s interesting that Emmylou Harris decided to name her new album Hard Bargain — after the Ron Sexsmith song, one of only two here that she didn’t write — since she makes everything look so easy. This collection is filled with effortless, timeless, beautiful songs, at the intersection of folk, rock and country that Harris has built into a magnificent career. “The Road” is a pretty retrospective of her time with the great Gram Parsons, with the verses sung

in her potent rock voice and the chorus in the lovely heights of her upper register. It’s a testament to her vocal strength that she can make a quick turn from that to the yearning “Home Sweet Home” and the wrenching “My Name Is Emmett Till,” where she sings from the point of view of Emmett, a 14year-old black boy who was killed in Mississippi in 1955 after reportedly speaking to a white woman. The beauty in her delivery makes her lyrics all the more harrowing, as she sings, “The ones who beat and cut me and shot me with a gun threw me in the river like I was trash when they were done.” Harris also rocks out on

Ghost! (DFA) Holy Ghost! does so much mining of disco grooves and ’80s synth-pop hooks that its debut sounds like a long lost 1982 British import. Holy Ghost! has nods to Confusion-era New Order (“It’s Not Over”), Pet Shop Boys orchestration (“Wait and See”) and Michael McDonald (“Some Children”) — yes, that Michael McDonald, the Doobie Brother, is singing the chorus. All that looking back could seem like a gimmick, but the Brooklyn duo nails the vibe, and Chris Pizzello/Associated Press singer Alex Frankel keeps it Emmylou Harris performs at the Country Music Hall light, with his airy, upbeat of Fame and Museum’s All for the Fundraiser in Los delivery.

Steve Earle borrows from Hank epitaph for new CD By Michael Mccall Associated Press

Steve Earle, I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive (New West) Veteran singer-songwriter Steve Earle invokes Hank Williams in his new album’s title, I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, which also serves as the name of his first novel, to be published in May. As Earle well knows, a song with the same title served as Williams’ epitaph: Hank’s “I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive” was a radio hit at the time of his death at age 29.

But rather than sing about succumbing at an early age, Earle uses this collection of original songs to celebrate survival and struggle. Working with producer T Bone Burnett, who mixes traditional folk music with bassheavy rhythms, Earle deals with dark fates, from doomed politicians to dangerous backstreet encounters to an oil spill that threatens the livelihood of a shrimping family that has worked the same waters for generations. He counters those songs with tales about how perseverance can pay off, whether it’s New Orleans rising from disas-

ter in the fiercely stated “This City” (first heard on the HBO series Treme, in which Earle has a recurring role) to finding lasting love late in life in the tender ballad “Every Part Of Me”. Earle’s message, it seems, is that even with life’s temptations and tragedies, redemption and meaning can be found—especially in love, in family and in community. CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: The autobiographical “Waitin’ On The Sky,” set to a Tex-Mex arrangement reminiscent of the Sir Douglas Quintet, starts with Earle growing up under the specter of the Vietnam War and ends with him declaring that, at age 56, he’s happier than he’s ever been.

demning/promoting the song by using religious imagery and the point of view of Mary Magdalene for what is essentially a retelling of “Bad Romance,” both lyrically and in its immediately irresistible chorus. For those who thought “Born This Way” was too straightforward musically, she throws in a slight bit of electronic experimentation in the verses. The result is another well-crafted smash.

You’ll want Dom Toretto, who’s again on the run along with his sister, Mia (Jordana Brewster), and to stay through a portion of the end-credits to catch one of them, a jolting tease for the cop-turned-outlaw Brian O’Conner (Paul franchise’s preordained sixth installment Walker). after Fast Five hauls in its fortune.

out of custody in a dementedly excessive prison-bus escape. Hiding out in Rio de Janeiro, the three join a daring car heist that puts them at odds with local crime boss Reyes (Joaquim de Almeida) and sets super agent Hobbs (Johnson) on their trail. So Dom decides to get the band back together, enlisting an Ocean’s Eleven-style ensemble of past Fast and the Furious rowdies to part Reyes from his millions. Returning as part of the team are Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Matt Schulze, Tego Calderon and Don Omar. Elsa Pataky joins the cast as possibly Brazil’s lone honest police officer, a woman tapped by Hobbs to help him chase down Toretto’s gang. But words like honest don’t mean much in the Fast Five world, where good guys are bad, bad guys are good, and only the really, really bad guys get what they’ve got coming. There’s no moral compass here (and apparently no clock, either; the movie runs much too long, and despite the breathless pace, the trip does start to wear on you). The only compass is the one pointing down the road straight ahead, down which The Fast and the Furious flicks will keep moving faster and faster. Maybe the filmmakers can do a little Alice in Wonderland rhyming and call the next one Furiouser and Furiouser.

It’s not just prom, it’s Disney’s Prom. And so no one smokes, no one sneaks in peach schnapps in a flask and no one gets lucky in the back of a limo. This is all about that magical night when everyone gets together, regardless of the social hierarchy that had been firmly in place the past four years, and dreams come true. Wholesome, earnest dreams for wholesome, earnest kids — except for the resident bad boy, that is. But naturally, he’ll turn out to have a heart of gold. Yes, director Joe Nussbaum’s film, from a script by Katie Wech, is chock-full of high-school movie cliches — sometimes knowingly and amusingly so. There’s a tall, misfit character named Lloyd (Nicholas Braun) who resembles Say Anything ...-era John Cusack — a tall, misfit character named Lloyd. Of course, the straight-arrow good girl (Aimee Teegarden) will get stuck working with the motorcycle-riding rebel (Thomas McDonell), and they will see through their respective prejudices to not only get along but fall for each other. Still, the sweetness and guilelessness of Prom is actually strangely charming, and for its target audience — girls who are several years away from having to pick out that perfect dress — this will be a safe, enjoyable and validating little diversion.

‘Hoodwinked Too!’ a passable sequel hoodwinked too! hood vs. evil HH rating: PG for some mild rude humor, language and action Running time: 1:25 Starring: The voices of Patrick Warburton, Glenn Close, Hayden Panettiere, Amy Poehler and Bill Hader

forest dwellers of the Happily Ever After Agency muddling along while Red (Hayden Panettiere takes over for Anne Hathaway) is off learning martial arts with the Sisters of the Hood.

Will The Orlando Sentinel Granny (Glenn Close) save the day?

returns, yodeling away in between pratfalls. The script is a mad, muddled blitz of one-liners and movie references. Some of the animation is a hoot, and a few voice actors stand out. Andy Dick does a Hannibal Lecter bit as an evil bunny, David Alan Grier finds a few laughs as a troll. And casting Bill Hader and Amy Poehler as the Germanic strudel-addicts Hansel & Gretel was inspired. It’s a pity the facial animation is so cut-rate, that the normally funny Warburton and David Ogden Stiers (as Nicky Flippers, the frog in charge of Happily Ever After) are given nothing funny to say and that the story is nothing more than a series of martial arts video game “levels” for small children. Yes, it’s in 3-D and no, it’s not remotely as good as Rio. And if your kids saw the first one in a theater, they’ve certainly outgrown the sequel. But for children still of the “We’ll watch anything so long as it’s animated” age, Hoodwinked Too! is at least a passable time-passer.

Jason Aldean leads CMT Awards with 4 noms By Chris Talbott Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The party just keeps rolling for country music star Jason Aldean. Long left out of major award consideration, Aldean’s recent tear continued Wednesday morning when he received a leading four 2011 CMT Music Awards nominations. The singer’s video for “My aldean Kinda Party” earned nods for CMT’s top award, video of the year, and male video of the year. Six acts trail Aldean by one with three nominations apiece: Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Zac Brown Band, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and The Band Perry. All are nominees for video of the year. Seven others received two nominations apiece. The nominations for the awards, which are in their 10th year, were announced Wednesday morning on NBC’s Today show. Fans can now decide the winners in 10 categories on the video channel’s website and will choose the video of the year winner during the June 8 awards telecast. Joining Aldean’s “My Kinda Party” in the category are Kenny Chesney’s “The Boys of Fall,” Lady Antebellum’s “Hello World,” Miranda Lambert’s “The House That Built Me,” Rascal Flatts’ “Why Wait,” Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue,” Taylor Swift’s “Mine,” The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young,” Carrie Underwood’s “Undo It” and Zac Brown Band’s “Colder Weather.” Fans will narrow the video of the year field down to final nominees through June 7, then will choose a winner during the show.

NEW YORK — The appointment five years ago of Katie Couric as evening news anchor represented a bold step, certainly something new for CBS News. Her likely successor, Scott Pelley, hearkens back to a day when CBS was the gold standard in television news. Pelley, the 60 Minutes correspondent who has worked at CBS for 21 years, is expected to be named next week as anchor of the third-rated evening newscast, to compete nightly with Brian Williams of NBC and Diane Sawyer of ABC. Many at CBS News see no other candidate. The expected new anchor is a courtly, 53year-old Texan, born in San Antonio. Pelley worked in local TV news in Dallas and Lubbock, and worked at CBS as a Texas-based national correspondent. He was a CBS News White House correspondent during the end of the Clinton years, became a correspondent for the short-lived 60 Minutes II spinoff and joined 60 Minutes in 2003. At CBS he has won awards for reporting on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, for stories on American waste that winds up in toxic dumps overseas instead of being recycled, and this season he has reported extensively on the human repercussions of the recession. “He’s relentless as a reporter and he is relentless in his drive to do good journalism,” said Dan Rather, a fellow Texan and former CBS Evening News anchor. “He’s a rock-solid believer in the tradition, history, legends and myths of CBS News.” The CBS News tradition that goes back half a century to Edward R. Murrow

In this image taken from video, President George W. Bush, left, speaks with ‘60 Minutes’ anchor Scott Pelley at the presidential retreat at Camp David, MD, Jan. 12, 2006. Pelley will likely take Katie Couric’s place on the ‘CBS Evening News.’ is looked on with pride by many at the network and outside, a reflection of an era where excellence in reporting and seriousness of purpose ruled. The new CBS News chairman, Jeff Fager, is a CBS veteran seen as trying to bring back those values. To many, though, it’s a time gone by with CBS’ news division a clear third in strength behind NBC and ABC. The evening anchor has long been seen as the face of a news division. Dwindling viewers, the importance of morning shows as profit centers and the ability of people to get news quickly on the Internet or cable news networks has reduced the influence of ABC’s World News, NBC’s Nightly News and the CBS newscast over the years. Still, the three newscasts collectively averaged 22 million viewers last week, the Nielsen Co. said. Pelley is a meticulous

journalist who does the little things to make a broadcast better, said Beth Knobel, a former Moscow bureau chief for CBS News and now a professor at Fordham University. When Pelley recently filled in as news anchor, he called correspondents ahead of time to craft their own questions for him to ask them on the air, which made them noticeably more informative than if he had read questions written by others, she said. “He has the best qualities of the people who made CBS News America’s premier news organization,” she said. “He has the moral compass of Edward R. Murrow, the intensity of Mike Wallace and the compassion of Ed Bradley.” She suggested that in Pelley’s hands, CBS’ evening newscast would be more hard-news oriented, with fewer human interest features. Andrew Tyndall, a

consultant whose Tyndall Report monitors the content of network evening newscasts, said the CBS Evening News under Couric and Executive Producer Rick Kaplan is already “harder” than its counterparts at ABC and NBC. He judges this by the amount of international news it includes, and that its features are more publicpolicy oriented. “The transition from Couric to Pelley is going to be more about having a face on the newscast whose persona does not undercut the content, rather than allowing them to change content,” Tyndall said. Couric, who is said to be weighing overtures from ABC, CBS and NBC centered on a syndicated talk show, expressed frustration at the limitations of the anchor job shortly after confirming this week she was leaving the CBS post. CBS has set no exit date.

From left, Geoffrey Arend, Windell Middlebrooks, Jeri Ryan, Dana Delany, Nic Bishop, Sonja Sohn and Carroll Lynch pose for a cast photo for the ABC series ‘Body of Proof.’ does not appear to be in current release on DVD, but there have been releases on DVD and VHS in the past, and I have seen it for sale in both formats on Amazon. com. Q: Are there any DVDs for any of the seasons of Quincy, M.E.? A: Yes. Three seasons of the long-running series starring Jack Klugman have been released in authorized DVD sets, one set including the first and second seasons, and another set including the third. If your local retailer cannot get them, they are for sale by online retailers Amazon.com, Deepdiscount.com and Moviesunlimited.com. Q: When will The Closer be on again? It is our favorite show. I thought it was going to be on again in February. A: The series starring Kyra Sedgwick has new episodes beginning July 11. This will begin the final season of the series, but will apparently be a spread-out one: 10 episodes in summer, five more in winter, and six more in 2012, according to Entertainment Weekly. Q: What ever happened

to Jeremy Brett, who played Sherlock Holmes on those superb British dramas? A: Brett died in 1995 of heart failure. He was 59. Mel Gussow of the New York Times said at the time that, “More than any other actor since Basil Rathbone, Mr. Brett was regarded as the quintessential Holmes: breathtakingly analytical, given to outrageous disguises and the blackest moods and relentless in his enthusiasm for solving the most intricate crimes.” Q: What happened to the wonderful Boardwalk Empire with Steve Buscemi? A: It completed a successful first season of 12 episodes, and a second season has been ordered. Do you have a question or comment about movies, TV and other popular culture?
