Jennifer Kelley and Chris Beard, co-owners of the new Gingham Buffalo, inside the new boutique store space opening on Center Grove Road.
Gingham Buffalo is one-of-a-kind New boutique opens on Center Grove Road By STEVE HORRELL For The Edge Enter the Gingham Buffalo store on Center Grove Road, look left, and you’ll see Larry the Buffalo up on the wall. OK, so it’s a faux buffalo mount. But as a symbol for the uniquely named new store – chocked as it is with one-of-akind items – it works. Owners Jennifer Kelley and Chris Beard certainly think so. They hit on the name Gingham Buffalo (gingham is small check fabric pattern of alternating colors; buffalo is similar but with larger checks) after “hours and hours of word play.” “It kind of worked as a play on words, and then we thought about it and thought ‘We can actually put a buffalo head on it,” says Kelley. Beard added, “That kind of sealed the deal. We love animals. We both have three dogs. We were thinking something about dogs in the beginning, and somehow that evolved into buffalo. The store opened on Oct. 20 and hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 6620 Center Grove Road. It features a showroom strewn with eclectic items. D i s h t o w e l s . G i n g h a m d i s h e s . A n t i q u e s i l v e r w a re . Couches, sofas and tables. Bottle openers. Key chains. Even smart phone cases and iPad covers. “We wanted to offer enough variety to give people ideas to let them know that, even if everything in the
store isn’t exactly to your taste, we can decorate for any palate,” Kelley said. Both women are professional shoppers. They also do a lot of consulting and interior design work. Their store is unique, they say, because they have been able to find vendors who can supply them with “unique, handcrafted, one-of-a-kind items” that are also affordable. “We spent hours and hours online, scouring antiques and things for our own houses, so we just decided that it would be a service that people would want,” Beard says. Neither grew up in Edwardsville. Kelley grew up in Rockford. Before moving to Edwardsville about 10 years ago, she spent several years as executive director for a non-profit, which gave her an extensive background in accounting and business. Beard grew up in Collinsville but has lived in Edwardsville for a couple of decades. Her mother and sister are C.P.A.’s, and Beard herself studied accounting for a couple of years. The two have become such good friends that they often finish each other ’s sentences. “We had the same vision,” Kelley says. “It was like, ‘Why wouldn’t we just partner and do it together so we could utilize each other ’s similarities and differences in design?' So it’s worked out awesome.” They found things to furnish the store that were both comfortable and affordable. But they also wanted the
unique statement pieces that are pricier. Kelley says their aim was to hook up with the right vendors so they would be bringing just the right items back to the store. They researched extensively. “We traveled and went to market so we could actually meet the vendors, feel the product,” Kelley says. “We did our homework. . . ” “. . . and didn’t sleep much,” Beard added. I n a d d i t i o n t o t h e re t a i l i n g p a r t o f t h e b u s i n e s s , Kelley and Beard also do consulting and interior design work. Should a customer mention that they’re unhappy, say, with the color of a bedroom, Kelley and Beard can help them with color selection. Or maybe it’s a light fixture or a throw rug or a piece of furniture. “We’ve had the concept for this for years,” Kelley says. “Once there was the thought, we were a highspeed train. Once we got the cars started . . . “ “. . . the momentum could not be stopped,” Beard said. Many of the offerings at The Gingham Buffalo can’t b e f o u n d a n y w h e re e l s e i n t h e E d w a rd s v i l l e a re a ; some can’t even be found at places like the Galleria, in Richmond Heights. The Gingham Buffalo will have a grand opening a few weeks after the Oct. 20 opening. The latter is on a Sunday rather than a Saturday to avoid a conflict with the Edwardsville High School homecoming. Beard says that’s fine. “We’ve done everything else different – why not make the opening different as well?”

On the Edge of the Weekend
People Lindbergh's plane returns to Lambert For The Edge After a two year hiatus, a historic plane once owned by Charles Lindbergh has returned to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport to hang once again over the C Concourse Checkpoint in Terminal 1. The Missouri History Museum completed a nine-hour installation of the 1934 D127 Monocoupe aircraft on Sunday, Oct. 20. Wings and other equipment were attached onsite prior to raising the plane into position. The Museum is sharing the experience of the complicated installation through a time lapse video. The Missouri History Museum has also installed a new interactive history kiosk which is in line-of-sight of the aircraft from the upper level of Terminal 1 overlooking the checkpoint atrium. The kiosk displays the history of Lambert and Charles Lindbergh and also chronicles the efforts by the Museum to save and exhibit this historic aircraft over the years, including its most recent restoration. The plane was removed in March of 2011 to make way for terminal renovations. During that time, the Missouri history Museum conducted a historic conservation effort of the aircraft, which included preserving the aircraft’s original fabric skin. The Monocoupe was originally installed at Lambert in 1979. The accumulation of dust and other airborne pollutants over 30 years made it necessary for the plane to undergo a complete conservation effort in order to ensure the continued preservation of the aircraft. Stress fractures along several seams in the plane’s fabric covering and the tears caused by general wear required professional attention. Charles Lindbergh’s Monocoupe plane was built by Lambert Aircraft Corporation in August 1934. It was just one of three planes built completely in St. Louis by the company. He donated it to the Missouri History Museum in 1940. Conservator Linda Landry managed the conservation effort. She consulted with professional aircraft conservators and performed chemical test analysis on the plane’s paint and fabric to confirm they were working with original materials. This is exceedingly rare for an aircraft to have maintained its original covering for so long. Once the age of the fabric and covering was established, all effort was made to retain the historic integrity of the plane. The Monocoupe was constructed using “fabric and dope,” a process still used today. Historic materials and the passage of time create unique challenges for preservation and conservation. In this type of construction, fabric is fitted over the frame and then covered with several layers of airplane
For The Edge
Charles Lindbergh's 1934 D-127 Monocoupe aircraft dope, a lacquer that is used to protect, waterproof, and make taut the cloth surfaces of airplanes. As the dope dries it shrinks, causing the material to stretch tightly over the frame, creating a smooth surface. Unfortunately, the dope never stops shrinking, so over the years the ever-tightening fabric can put pressure on the framework until the fabric either tears to relieve the stress or weaker parts of the interior structure snap.
The Missouri History Museum conservation team repaired seams and tears with precision patches and paint compounds. A full inch by inch cleaning of the interior and exterior of the plane was undertaken to remove nearly 34 years of accumulated contaminants. The historic plane now shines again for the millions of passengers and visitors who pass through Lambert’s Terminal 1 every year.

Science Center hosts exhibit on bugs The Saint Louis Science Center will open its doors for an insect invasion when it hosts Harry’s Big Adventure: My Bug World! Oct. 19, 2013 through Jan. 20, 2014. The exhibition, which was developed by national pest control company Te r m i n i x , i s a m u l t i s e n s o r y experience that immerses visitors into the world of bugs by introducing them to thousands of live insects. Hosted by Harry, a Chinese praying mantis, and his insect friends, Harry’s Big Adventure: My Bug World! takes visitors on a unique journey through the habitats, sights, sounds and social structures of some of nature’s smallest, yet most important, contributors. “We are so excited to host Harry’s Big Adventure,” said Jackie Mollet, Senior Director of Exhibits at the Saint Louis Science Center. “The hands-on nature of the exhibition, coupled with thousands of live bugs, makes this fun and educational for all of our visitors.” Harry’s Big Adventure takes guests on an educational journey around the world through six distinct zones to see how insects impact their surroundings, the environment and ultimately human lives. Filled with interactive games and competitions, visitors can see how far they can spit a cricket, pick their favorite roach in the Roach Race, get up close and personal
with insects in the Bug Petting Zoo and even try an insect delicacy cooked up by the Bug Chef. For more information and to purchase tickets please visit slsc.org/harrysbig-adventure or call 800.456.SLSC x4424 or 314.289.4424.

On the Edge of the Weekend
People People planner Dunham returning to St. Charles The nation’s number one comedian Jeff Dunham and his beloved cast of characters announce the kick off of the winter leg of their 2013 “Disorderly Conduct” worldwide t o u r. T h e w i n t e r 2 0 1 3 / 2 0 1 4 international concert series begins on December 26, 2013 in Toledo, OH and continues through February 28, 2014 in Champaign. IL. Dunham is scheduled to appear at the Family Arena in St. Charles on Feb. 7. Tickets are available through MetroTix.com or by calling 1-314534-1111. Fans all over the world can look forward to a new jam-packed show with more laughs than ever before. Dunham’s famed troupe of sidekicks are back: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border José Jalapeño, and Peanut’s own ventriloquist dummy Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself. Dunham and his comedic sidekicks most recent Comedy Central onehour special entitled “Minding the Monsters,” is the fifth in a string of record-breaking specials. “Minding the Monsters” takes its audience into the ultimate haunted house where you can see Walter transform into something grumpier than he already is, watch Bubba J rise from the dead, meet Peanut’s alter ego, The Purple Avenger of the Night, and his spicy sidekick, and witness Achmed literally dressed to kill in an outfit that would terrify the most terrifying terrorist! It debuted on Comedy Central to 7.5 million viewers, making it the most watched special of the year for the network. Upon its release on DVD, it was the #1 comedy DVD on Amazon.com and exceeded platinum sales within 6 days. It has already reached triple platinum status. The amazing rise of Jeff Dunham continues apace, with 2013 having seen Jeff continue to pack arena-sized venues. Dunham and his sidekicks are preparing for their sixth trip to Europe this fall, stopping in the U.K., Germany, and Belgium. In 2013, fans will also get the chance to see Achmed the Dead Terrorist like he's never been seen before! This December, Jeff Dunham will premiere his very first animated feature “Achmed Saves America,” starring the world’s most beloved, failed bad-guy! In this full length animated movie, Achmed is having a very bad day... After accidentally blowing himself up, the world's most incompetent suicide bomber finds himself whisked away from his homeland by a giant bald eagle and dropped off in... Americaville, USA. There, mistaken by the kindhearted Wilson family for a visiting French exchange student, "The Little Skeleton That Couldn't" bumblingly plots to destroy the town and all of its "infidels". But, once he's exposed to the sweet things in life -including all-you-can-eat buffets and frozen yogurt -- Achmed's campaign of hate turns into a patriotic AllAmerican lovefest.The phenomenal international success of Dunham and his cohorts have been driven by his Comedy Central specials, which set global records for both ratings and sales. Dunham’s 4th Comedy Central TV special “Controlled Chaos,” premiered to a staggering 8.3 million viewers overall making
it the most viewed cable show that night. The global TV event enjoyed a never-before simultaneous same day worldwide debut in a dozen countries. Dunham continued to break ratings records at the end of 2011, when The Bio Channel’s premiere of Jeff Dunham: “Birth of a Dummy” became the network’s top rated telecast ever.No wonder The New York Times Magazine declared Jeff Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.” Dunham was recently named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years running as well as their Top Worldwide Tour for two years in a row.

People People planner Engelbreit to serve as parade marshal Nationally renowned artist and entrepreneur Mary Engelbreit has been named Honorary Grand M a r s h a l o f t h e 2 0 1 3 A m e re n Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade. " We a re h o n o re d a n d t r u l y thankful to have Mary serve as our grand marshal,â€? said Brian Hall, chairman of Christmas in St. Louis. â€œShe is a true St. Louis treasure and national icon who has always given so much back to our community.â€?

West to appear at The Fox Twenty-one-time Grammy Award-winner (and 52-time Grammynominee) Kanye West will return to the road this fall for THE YEEZUS TOUR in support of his gold album YEEZUS, the most critically acclaimed new album of 2013 and the 6th consecutive #1 album of his storied career. West – a legendary live performer - combines state-of-the-art staging, production, and lighting design with his unmatched aesthetic, visionary creative mind, and an increasingly impressive catalogue of hits spanning his decade-long career. To date, Kanye West has sold over 21 Million albums and over 66 Million digital tracks worldwide. The seven week tour of the U.S. and Canada opened October 19th at the KeyArena in Seattle, and will conclude on December 7th at the Toyota Center in Houston. Tickets for the Dec. 2 St. Louis show are on sale at the Ford Box Office at Scottrade Center, Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000 and online at ticketmaster.com. Joining Kanye in exclusive support on THE YEEZUS TOUR will be Top Dawg Entertainment's own Kendrick Lamar, who has emerged as one of the-brightest young talents in hip-hop today. Lamar’s debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city, released in October of last year, was recently certified platinum by the RIAA. THE YEEZUS TOUR is Kanye West’s first major itinerary since his WATCH THE THRONE tour with JAY Z in 2011 - the highest grossing tour in hip-hop history – and his first solo tour since 2008’s critically acclaimed GLOW IN THE DARK tour. Recently, the Washington Post hailed West as "a visionary who’s managed to tweak the serial rhythms that dictate so much of our pop culture diet. He doesn’t do cliffhangers. He jumps off…We gasp, gawk and wonder, ‘Where will he land?’” West’s recent effort YEEZUS has been hailed by critics as the album of the year; The New York Times raved "the album is one long, efficient, inventive kick in the head,” while the Daily News agreed that YEEZUS was "punk in attitude, genius in execution." Rolling Stone argued the album was "a brilliant, obsessive-compulsive career auto-correct…This isn't just a way to stay ahead of the competition; it's a way to stay ahead of himself.” The New Yorker echoed the sentiment, proclaiming YEEZUS as "technically breathtaking…Twenty years from now, West’s previous records will remain important, but a new generation may first gravitate to the lean vibrancy of this one." USA Today weighed in with "…a polarizing, multi-layered body of work that probably will be debated all summer. Who does that besides Kanye West?” Entertainment Weekly summed things up with "Kanye West has gone rogue again. Did you expect anything less? The job of an innovator, of course, is to keep innovating… …he pushes the envelope aesthetically.” Kanye again pushed the envelope at the 30th anniversary 2013 MTV VMAs, with his visually stunning, silhouetted performance of “Blood On The Leaves,” from YEEZUS. The performance made VMA history, marking Kanye’s seventh showcase at the awards spectacular, tying him with Madonna as the two artists with the most number of VMA performances.

New York Magazine called the album, “A great record. Period,” while Rolling Stone said, “Robin Thicke sings, writes, produces, plays keyboard and even raps a little on his excellent sixth
album.” The second single off of the album, “Give It 2 U” ft. Kendrick Lamar, is available now.

The award-winning multiplatinum superstar returned to center stage in 2008 with Something Else, a joyful and modern tribute to the ‘70s soul and pop records that have inspired an extraordinary career. Revered by critics as one of the best soul albums in years, this ‘70s-inspired album dealt with racism, poverty, and love in the hits “Dreamworld,” “Magic,” and “The Sweetest Love.” In December of 2009 Robin released Sex Therapy. The title song was hailed by critics as “the sexiest song of the year.” Robin’s fifth studio album, Love After War was released in December of 2011.
Rogers to appear at the Family Arena Kenny Rogers has already had a massive year in 2013, including the announcement of his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame this fall. Rogers also performed on the main stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival to a colossal audience on the grounds
and around the UK as it was televised on BBC. His Through The Years World Tour has included stops in Morocco, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Switzerland, Canada and the U.S. This fall and winter, Rogers’ tour will roll on with more U.S. and Canadian dates, including the Christmas & Hits Through The Years Tour, his annual holiday performances, in late November and December. In addition, a novel Rogers co-wrote with Mike Blakely, What Are The Chances, is being released today (September 3rd) and Rogers’ New York Times Best Selling autobiography, Luck Or Something Like It, will be released in paperback on September 27th. Rogers returns with You Can’t Make Old Friends on October 8th via Warner Bros. Records, proving – once again – that he still has plenty to say. The album reunites Rogers with long-time friend and collaborator, Dolly Parton, for a brand new duet on the title track, “You Can’t Make Old Friends.” It was thirty years ago almost to the day when Kenny and Dolly released “Islands In The Stream,” which went on to become an instant classic and one of the most successful singles by a duo in history. Rogers will appear Wednesday, December 11, 2013 @ 8:00 p.m. at the Family Arena in St. Charles on Arena Parkway. Tickets can be purchased at the Family Arena Ticket Office or online at www.metrotix.com. Prices: $68 (Gold Circle), $58 (Floor), $48 (Lower Lever), $33 (Upper Level).

"The Three Tenor Concert" Arts & Issues brings together the SIUE and SIUC orchestras for a unique musical event By JULIA BIGGS Of The Edge
he SIUE and SIUC orchestras are joining together once again for a unique musical event as part of the SIUE Arts & Issues program. Celebrating the 200th anniversary of Verdi and Wagner, the university’s combined orchestras are presenting “The Three Tenor Concert” featuring SIUE’s own Marc Schapman, and renowned tenors Paul Williamson and Brian Cheney.
This extraordinary concert takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 18 in the Dunham Hall Theater on the SIUE campus. The SIUE and SIUC orchestras initially came together for their first ever combined orchestras performance last year for the SIUE Arts & Issues 2012 season. This year Michael Mishra, Director of Orchestral Studies at SIUE, and Edward Benyas, Music Director of the SIUC Symphony Orchestra, are bringing their orchestras together to share in the conducting of “The Three Tenor Concert.” Mishra explained that Benyas had the creative idea behind the concert’s concept which has really two ideas in one. The first was to recreate the famous "The Three Tenor Concert" that took place originally in Rome, Italy, in 1990 on the eve of the FIFA World Cup (soccer) Final. The Three Tenor original concert brought together Luciano Pavarotti and the two Spanish tenors Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras. This concert was talked about around the world since Pavarotti and Domingo were considered to be tenor rivals. The SIUE/SIUC’s "The Three Tenor Concert" will be bringing together SIUE’s own Marc Schapman and tenors Paul Williamson and Brian Cheney. But there’s no past animosity between these tenors. “I’ve never worked with either of them professionally in the past,” Schapman noted. “I’ve seen their names on cast lists
and heard recordings of them. Both are very accomplished singers. It should be an exciting concert.” Schapman serves as Associate Professor of Voice and Director of Graduate Studies in Music at SIUE where he teaches Opera Literature, Song Literature, Opera and Musical Theatre Workshop, and Applied Voice. Williamson is a Jamaican-born Canadian lyric tenor. He has sung in a multitude of operatic concerts, and in March of 2014, Williamson will appear as the tenor soloist in Mozart’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall in collaboration with the Houghton College. Cheney has been performing concert works and oratorio throughout the country since his debut at Carnegie Hall in 2007. The protege of legendary tenor Jerry Hadley, Cheney has been quickly gaining national acclaim. His self-titled debut solo album was released worldwide earlier this month. Mishra pointed out that the second idea behind the combined orchestras concert was “the fact that this year is the 200th anniversary of both Verdi and Wagner who probably are the two biggest composers of the 19th century. They were both born in 1813 so this concert is also a celebration of that. A lot of what the tenors will be singing is Verdi,” Mishra said. Schapman emphasized that although most of the music in the concert would be operatic, it would ring a familiar tone with the audience. “I think that most people will find that there is an abundance of music at this concert that probably most people either know, or heard on a commercial or heard in a movie,” he said. “A lot of the tunes that are going to be in the concert are really kind of standard, very popular, accessible arias from major operas. So I think a lot of people who aren’t sure whether or not they’ll be familiar with it, will find that it’s very entertaining and probably a lot of it they will have heard at some point.” This concert will also be providing valuable experiences for the orchestra
students from both campuses. “Pretty much all of this music is operatic, and it needs a different skill for the orchestra,” Mishra said. “There’s a certain skill to accompanying arias that I think is an important part of their training.” The fact that two of the tenors would be basically flying in the day before the performance for rehearsals was also another learning opportunity for the university’s orchestra students. “We’ll have our performance Monday – but Sunday afternoon and evening we’ll be having six hours of joint rehearsals,” Mishra said. “That will be the first time that the orchestra will get to meet the singers. So we rehearse and then the singers come along and well maybe this tempo is going to be different here or maybe they are going to do some things over there that you have to be able to react to on the fly one day before the concert. So that presents, I think, a good training experience for students if anybody ever goes on to be playing operas in pits – pit theater work. It’s good to be able to respond to stuff like that at the last minute.” SIUE Arts & Issues Director Grant Andree was excited to present the combined orchestras again as part of its Arts & Issues season. “This will be a great concert,” Andree said. “It’s an opportunity to hear the full sound of the combined orchestras with three outstanding tenors: Paul Williamson, Brian Cheney and our own Marc Schapman.” “This was a very popular concert the first time we presented it. In fact, it sold out,” Andree added. “So you’ll want to get tickets right away.” Tickets for The SIUE and SIUC Combined Orchestras “The Three Tenor Concert” may be purchased at the Dunham Hall Fine Arts Box Office from 8 a.m. until noon, the Information Booth at the Morris University Center, by calling 618-650-5774, or online at artsandissues.com. General admission, SIUE staff, retirees, alumni, students and seniors over 65 are $15, and SIUE student ticket prices are $13.

On the Edge of the Weekend
Religion Pastor creating his own hot sauces LOGANSPORT, Ind. (AP) — Most of K.C. Richey's time is spent preaching. When he isn't preaching, he's making hot sauce. Richey has three hot sauces and one mild sauce, completing his current collection, OMG Hot Sauce. His mild sauce, made from his mother's recipe, is named Marcella's Mild Sauce after his mother. The mild sauce is now sold at D&R Fruit Market, 931 W. Market St. Richey fondly recalls times spent cooking with his mother. She used to make a sauce, which she called ketchup, when tomatoes and bell peppers were in abundance, Richey said. After he started making hot sauce, he decided he wanted to add his mother's recipe to his collection. Unable to find a recipe or ask his mother, who suffers from advanced stages of Alzheimer's, what the ingredients were, he was determined to duplicate the recipe even if it took him a year — which it did. "On a visit I asked her, 'mom you know that ketchup we used to make?' She stopped, tilted her head and didn't say anything, as if she
remembered," Richey told the Pharos-Tribune (http://bit.ly/17jVdL0 ). "Did you put this ingredient in it, I asked, even though she hasn't known anything for five years. She said yes. I asked about another ingredient and she said yes. In a span of sixty seconds she continued and got it right." Richey, who is originally from Logansport, is now living in Detroit. It was about 14 years ago that he started making his own hot sauce and placing it in mason jars and giving it to friends and family as gifts. It took Richey three times to get it right, making small adjustments to each batch. "Our goal all along has been flavor," Richey said. "Carrots were key. They reduce the heat without altering the flavor." The project was just something fun, Richey said. "I am a pastor full-time, so it wasn't like I was looking to do more than that," Richey said. "We thought it might be possible because over the past decade, craft producers from granola to beer exploded. We went from not caring to having a product in a bottle."
The product started being sold commercially two years ago. There are three hot sauce flavors, OMG Hantu Honey, Island Style Pineapple and OMG Original Recipe. The Hantu Honey features a Ghost Chile, Richey said. He describes the sauce as an edible ghost flavor. He even said he likes to drizzle it on vanilla ice cream and asks others to try it. The mild sauce is what people will recognize as a chili sauce. He describes it as all sweet and no heat. The pineapple sauce is fruity, sweet and the least hot of all of the hot sauces. The original sauce is full-flavored and savory, Richey said. The prices of the sauces on the website range from $5.45 to $8.95. The mild sauce can be found at D&R Fruit Market in Logansport for $3.99, Richey said. Ten percent of profits from sales of OMG's Marcella's Mild Sauce go toward Alzheimer's research. In addition to D&R Fruit Market, It is sold in stores in Michigan and has been shipped coast to coast to places like California, New York, Florida and Texas. One of the company's
biggest customers is the owner of a food truck named Burrito Bus located in Lafayette. Staff there love the pineapple hot sauce, Richey said. "It's pretty emotional for me to have product in the town I grew up," Richey said. "There was a moment when I found out where I was misty eyed because of my mom. It was special and I know how much it would mean to my mom to know her recipe is in a community she loved." The mild sauce, introduced in July, has larger sales than any of the hot sauces, Richey said. Richey, who lived in Logansport for 20 years, graduated from Logansport High School in 1974. He and his wife were high school sweethearts. Richey and Joni left Logansport in 1987 to begin pastoring full-time. They are now at Calvary Assembly of God which also has a Christian school, Calvary Christian Academy. Joni and Richey have two daughters and four grandchildren. During the past two years, Richey has learned plenty about business. "I've learned it takes a lot of legwork," Richey said. "It involves more than store-to-store contact."

QuickGlance Movie Reviews
In an age when we’re able to consume content so many different ways — and that’s a good thing, mostly — let’s declare right now that there’s only one truly correct way to experience “Gravity,” Alfonso Cuaron’s thrilling new space film. In a theater. On a huge screen. And in 3-D. Yes, even for all you 3-D naysayers — we hear you, but this is the movie you HAVE to see in 3-D. And please, no matter how many months or years pass, don’t watch this film on your little smartphone. If you’ve seen the heart-pounding trailer, you’ll know that Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play astronauts who experience a traumatic accident in space. You may also know about the extraordinary special effects used to create this weightless cinematic world — so extraordinary that many are calling the film a landmark of the sci-fi genre. But what you can’t know, until you’re in the theater, is just how much you’ll feel like you’re up there in space, feeling its vastness, perhaps even feeling cold. And how you might let yourself forget, momentarily, that this movie wasn’t shot on location. And how you’ll ask yourself, how did they DO this? And how you’ll then forget the question, because you’ll be caught up once again in this 90-minute thrill ride. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language.” RUNNING TIME: 90 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Four stars out of four.
If you saw Paul Greengrass’s “United 93,” a terrifying depiction of one of the doomed flights on 9/11, you know this director can evoke a harrowing, real-life event like few others. In fact, you may not have recovered yet from the experience. So it’s no surprise that Greengrass has produced another expertly crafted, documentary-style film based on a real event — the 2009 hijacking of a cargo ship by Somali pirates and the five-day standoff that ensued, with the ship’s American captain, Richard Phillips, held captive in a stifling covered lifeboat after offering himself as a hostage. A major difference is that this movie has a happy ending — for the captain, anyway, who was rescued in a dramatic high-seas Navy sniper operation. Three of the overmatched attackers were killed; the fourth is in a U.S. prison. More cinematically speaking, the difference is that “Captain Phillips” is a star vehicle. In some cases, this can detract from the sense of veracity of a truth-based film. Tom Hanks, though, delivers some of his finest work here, playing the Everyman role he does so well, in this case a fairly ordinary guy forced by circumstance to be a hero. And yet “Captain Phillips” is a remarkably unsentimental film, with an emotional catharsis coming only at the very end, when we’re all ready for some kind of release. This is where Hanks digs deepest as an actor. As for Hanks, his final moments are his best, as Phillips registers in an intensely personal way the cumulative effects of what he’s endured. It’s safe to say those moments will be what’s remembered most from this movie, and for a long time. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sustained intense sequences of menace, some violence with bloody images, and substance use.” RUNNING TIME: 134 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

"All Is Lost"
What floats your boat? Do you like your movies with dialogue, multiple characters, complex story lines — you know, stuff? Or can a film without the benefit of such things fill your sails? J.C. Chandor’s second film, “All Is Lost,” starring Robert Redford, is typically characterized by what it isn’t. There’s little in the way of backstory. There’s only one character. And he generally doesn’t talk. There is a man at sea, an old man. And that is about it. Hemingway’s tale is a garish soap opera by comparison. We know little about our unnamed man (Redford). We’re informed that he’s located 1700 nautical miles from Indonesia’s Sumatra Straits. In the opening, he reads in voice over a letter in which he, down to only half a day’s ration, pens a farewell and an apology for some unspecified failing in his now decidedly precarious life. “I tried,” he says. “I think you will all agree that I tried.” The film then properly begins eight days prior, when our man awakes to find that, in the middle of the Indian Ocean, a floating cargo ship container has lodged itself in the hull of his 39-foot yacht. It leaves a gaping hole that, aside from threatening to sink him, has destroyed all the ship’s radios and electronics. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “brief strong language.” RUNNING TIME: 107 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.
If the “Jackass” movies have always spit exuberantly in the face of age and mortality, it’s fitting that co-creators Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze and Jeff Tremaine have now given us one devoted to Knoxville’s octogenarian alter ego, Irving Zisman. Strangely touching, too, given that the “Jackass” boys are all in their 40s now and still throwing caution to the wind. Strapping a loose narrative framework onto the series’ patented stunts and candid-camera gags, “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” shows there’s still comic life in this decade-old franchise — provided, of course, the sight of a senior citizen getting his penis caught in a vending machine is the kind of thing that brings a smile to your face. Originally introduced during the final season of “Jackass” on MTV, the Zisman character has been a mainstay ever since, sometimes paired with Jonze’s nonagenarian prostitute character Gloria for maximum elder-care chaos. In “Bad Grandpa,” Irving’s family is fleshed out to include a crack-addict daughter (Georgina Kates), who, on the verge of returning to prison, tasks Irving with transporting his 8-year-old grandson (Jackson Nicoll) to the boy’s deadbeat father (Greg Harris) in North Carolina. That’s the “plot” as far as it goes, which is really just a device for putting Knoxville and the cherubic, foul-mouthed Nicoll (“The Fighter”) in a car together and letting them wreak their inspired havoc across state lines. A couple of the movie’s best and most outrageous payoffs come right up front, when Irving enlists a couple of unwitting furniture movers to help him load the corpse of the late Mrs. Zisman (Catherine Keener) into his car, then tries to circumvent the road trip by simply UPS-ing little Billy all the way to Raleigh. The m.o. of “Jackass” has always been the comedy of physical pain — a “Three Stooges” for the X-Games era — married to a kind of anarchic street theater. Knoxville and company delight at finding ways to make life veer off its neatly ordered path and in capturing the flummoxed reactions of those who bear witness. Here, they take an added glee in playing off social mores concerning children and the elderly — how they should

be treated, and when they shouldn’t be held responsible for their actions (as when Irving and Billy eat their way through a minimart, then make a run for it). RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “strong crude and sexual content throughout, language, some graphic nudity and brief drug use.” RUNNING TIME: 91 minutes.
As creaky as an arthritic hip, “Last Vegas” does for four leading stars of the ‘70s and ‘80s what movies like “Tough Guys” and “Grumpy Old Men” did for survivors of Hollywood’s storied Golden Age: It lets them show they can still throw a punch, bust a move, and get it on, and that they’re not quite ready for the Motion Picture Home just yet. Beyond that, this genteel “Hangover” for the AARP crowd has little to recommend it, though a smattering of funny gags and the nostalgia value of the cast keeps the whole thing more watchable than it has any right to be. One doesn’t exactly expect “Death in Venice” from a movie that begins on a shot of female cellulite jiggling beneath the surface of a Florida community pool. But as various seniorcentric pics have proven, from Martin Brest’s delightful caper “Going in Style” to Ron Howard’s “Cocoon,” going gray isn’t automatically an impediment to a screenplay that consists of more than death and Viagra jokes. But “Last Vegas” scribe Dan Fogelman (who wrote the monumentally smarter and shrewder “Crazy, Stupid, Love”) pretty much sticks to the lowest common denominator as he contrives to get four childhood friends together in Sin City for the bachelor party of the last unmarried man among them. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sexual content and language.” RUNNING TIME: 104 minutes.
Let’s start with the relatively good news: “Diana,” a new biopic about the last two years of Princess Diana’s life, is not nearly as horrendous as some of the reviews in her homeland may have led you to believe. (”Car-crash cinema,” one British paper opined.) Now the bad news: It’s just not very good. And that’s a shame, in at least three ways. First, the gifted actress Naomi Watts deserves to be in a better movie. Second, Oliver Hirschbiegel, who directed the admired and Oscarnominated German-language film “Downfall,” about Adolf Hitler, somehow, er, falls down here. Finally, and most unfortunately, an opportunity is lost to dig deeper into a personality that fascinated the world like few others in our modern times — “the most famous woman in the world,” as the movie aptly calls her. So where does it go wrong? For starters, the filmmakers may have been constrained by a desire to be respectful. It’s not hard to imagine why. Diana’s two sons are very much alive, for one thing. But blame must also be laid on the script. Yes, we know that royals speak woodenly in public. But we’re pretty sure they, and the non-royals in their lives, loosen up in private. Stephen Jeffreys’ script sometimes sounds like he’s unaware how real people chat, flirt, fall in love. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “brief strong language, some sensuality and smoking.” RUNNING TIME: 113 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.
In this May 21, 2013 file photo, director James Toback, left, actor Alec Baldwin, right, and Baldwin's wife Hilaria Thomas pose for photographers during a photo call for the film "Seduced and Abandoned," at the 66th international film festival, in Cannes, southern France.
Baldwin talks about the movie biz By JAKE COYLE Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — In “Seduced and Abandoned,” Alec Baldwin and James Toback present a portrait of today’s movie business and an elegy to what it once was. In person, Baldwin’s even more candid, venting on tasteless studio executives, the pay for actors and the “fetid septic tank” of the movie business. Baldwin and Toback knocked around the Cannes Film Festival last year, documenting the humbling process of Hollywood dealmaking and trying to get financing for a film. Baldwin, whose movie career has largely taken a back seat to TV (he has followed his Emmywinning run on “30 Rock” with his recently launched MSNBC talk show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin”), calls making the film — a blitz of celebrity interviews and yacht visits along the French Riviera — “one of the best times of my life.”
Currently playing in select theaters before airing Monday on HBO, the film is timely, coming amid a year of much debate about the state of moviemaking. In an interview, Baldwin had plenty to say on the subject. AP: Though you have several films in the works, you’ve suggested before that you may be done with the movies. Are you? Baldwin: You wind up not having any faith in it, in terms of having a career at it. Everyone wants you to turn to a speech that Lucas and Spielberg gave — two very, very seasoned people in the business who talk about the business model of studio movies collapsing. What I want to say is: The business model in terms of actors making a living at it is collapsing because you can’t get paid to make a movie. Everybody does TV because you’re not out there having to kill yourself to get an audience the way you do in the movie business. People I work with, they want you to become their partner in raising money. They want you to become their partner in collapsing
their fees. They want you to become their partner, now, in selling the movie. They want you on a plane going to festivals and you’re on the phone with reporters all the time. The amount of work outside the shooting of the film has become absolutely unconscionable. ... All the fun of it is gone. You talk it to death. AP: “Seduced and Abandoned” comes at a time of great handwringing over the future of cinema. B a l d w i n : I t w a s t o u g h f i n a n c i a l l y. Then it was very tough financially. Then it was unbearable financially. And now it’s unbearable financially and creatively. For the most part. There are exceptions. “12 Years a Slave.” There are movies that come along that are wonderful films. The movie “Gravity” is a box-office success. “Captain Phillips” is a good movie. There are good movies that come along. It just seems that the opportunity to make a good movie, if you do get to make one, takes an extraordinary amount of luck or an extraordinary amount of fortitude. AP: “Blue Jasmine,” the Woody Allen film in
which you co-starred, was excellent. Baldwin: But Woody’s in his own universe. When what you’re starting off with is “written by Woody Allen,” you have a leg up on everyone else. AP: What needs to change? Baldwin: The principle reason movies fall apart is that you don’t have a good director. The most anemic guild in all of the business is the Directors Guild. There are thousands of good actors out there waiting for a job. There are so many unproduced scripts that are good. The real dilemma in the business today: There are not enough good directors. There’s an ocean of mediocre directors. AP: Did you learn anything new about the film business making “Seduced and Abandoned”? Baldwin: You see in the business this fetid septic tank filled with all these people, and then you turn around and there’s Bertolucci, there’s Scorsese. They don’t let that get in their way. They have their stresses. They have their own challenges."
A week for weak movies By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge When I set out to see "Bad Grandpa," a comedy from the "Jackass" franchise, I felt that I had a pretty good idea of what to expect. Rather than being a set of skits featuring Johnny Knoxville in his old man character of Irving Zisman, though, "Bad Grandpa" instead attempts to formulate a cohesive plot. We know it’s Knoxville and that the general public is duped, but the movie finds itself being more like "Borat" – a sociological experiment on fooling ordinary folks with scatological frat house humor and poking fun at the elderly the way Sacha Baron Cohen would foreigners. The movie isn’t great. Even
many of its “best” jokes peak and dissipate after earning the briefest of chuckles from very forgiving audience members. Zisman finds himself widowed after the passing of his wife, Ellie, whose corpse was played by Oscar nominee Catherine Keener. More shocking still is that I thought it was a dummy until she jumped to life in some outtakes during the closing credits. With no wife, and a daughter (Georgina Cates) in jail, he’s forced to make a road trip from Nebraska to North Carolina with his impish grandson, Billy (Jackson Nicoll), to return him to the care of his drug dealer f a t h e r ( G re g H a r r i s ) . I f t h e antics they come up with along the way weren’t so buffoonish, there might have been a nice little story in here somewhere.
But there are antics: Irv enters a strip show; Billy impersonates a girl during a junior beauty pageant; they nearly get killed by a child advocate motorcycle club; the two shoplift incessantly and leave a mess behind in a diner that decorum prohibits me from elaborating further upon. The Jackass television show and its trio of films had their place, but this extension is a different beast. I urge you not to contribute one more admission to a film that has already won the Box Office crown once and earned over $30 million in the process. "Bad Grandpa" runs 109 minutes and is rated R for strong crude and sexual content throughout, language, some graphic nudity, and brief drug use. I give this film one star out of four.
••• I wasn’t sated by "Bad Grandpa" last night so I stumbled into a late night showing of "The Counselor," the weekend’s other new release. I really found it to be without a lot of merit beyond its power cast. In fact, the narrative was so choppy that it felt like the nuance of real life had been sucked out of it by a bare bones screenwriter hack, who just happens to be beloved octogenarian author Cormac McCarthy. Michael Fassbender plays the titular counselor, a character that has no other name. He’s a major player in the Southeast legal area that is unhappy with making a lot of money and wants millions more. Therefore, he gets mixed up in the dangerous game of arranging drug distribution for the Colombian and
November 7, 2013
Mexican cartels with his money buddy (greasy-haired Brad Pitt) and his contact buddy (wild-haired Javier Bardem). Penelope Cruz and Rosie Perez also have small parts. The plot of this one limps along and really doesn’t matter. The story here relies on its use of over-the-top elements to sick in your memory. Like pet cheetahs wearing diamond-studded collars. Or numerous beheadings. Or a heavily-tattooed Cameron Diaz gratifying herself on the windshield of a car. "The Counselor," beyond its graphic violence and psychosexual underbelly, is nothing. Don’t waste your time. The Counselor runs 133 minutes and is rated R for graphic violence, some grisly images, strong sexual content, and language. I give this film half of one star out of four.

The Arts Wildey to take part in film festival For The Edge
he lights are about to go down, and the stars are getting ready to shine.
The 22nd Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) will be held Nov. 14-24. SLIFF will screen 330 films: 75 narrative features, 63 documentary features, and 192 shorts. This year s festival has 201 screenings/ programs, with 54 countries represented. The highlight of this year s fest is an appearance by Oscar®-winning writer/director Oliver Stone, who will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award, discuss his career, and screen his director s cut of JFK on Friday, Nov. 22, the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedys assassination. The fest will host more than 100 filmmakers and related guests,

The festival will open on Thursday, Nov. 14, with the St. Louis premiere of We Always Lie to Strangers, an extraordinary documentary on Branson, Mo., by AJ Schnack ( Kurt Cobain About a Son) and David Wilson (co-founder of the True/False Documentary Festival). The film premiered to great acclaim at SXSW and was featured at such major documentary fests as Torontos Hot Docs and Full Frame. Other prominent films featured in the festival include August: Osage County, The Invisible Woman, Le Week-End, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Nebraska, One Chance, The Past, and Philomena. The fest schedule, ticket information, and a complete list of films (with descriptions) are available at the Cinema St. Louis Web site (www.cinemastlouis.org).

Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. MondayFriday. Tickets are also avwww. wildeytheatre.com or by phone at 618-692-7538. All four films playing the Wildey have local connections: • "Caucus" Nov. 17th at 4:30 p.m. The film's director is Edwardsville native AJ Schnack In intimate, often funny, and sometimes emotional detail, “Caucus” tells the story of the 2011-12 campaign in Iowa as eight Republicans fight to become their party’s standard-bearer and take on Barack Obama. To win, each has to first navigate state fairs, town-hall meetings in pizza halls, and agitated questions from the increasingly contentious GOP base. A never-before-seen look at an unforgettable political season, “Caucus” documents the remarkable and unorthodox GOP field, with special focus on former Sen. Rick Santorum and Rep. Michele Bachmann. Both would fight to stay relevant in a contest where nearly every candidate would lead the race at some point: the governor of Texas, the former U.S.
On the Edge of the Weekend
trio of previous SLIFF appearances (“Steel City,” “The Thacker Case,” “Joint Body”) – “She Loves Me Not” is co-directed with William Sanderson. In the film’s three linked vignettes, reclusive novelist Brady Olinson (Cary Elwes of “The Princess Bride”) struggles to find romance and meaning in his life despite comically disastrous circumstances. Though once a successful author, Brady is now essentially a has-been: An alcoholic, a liar, and a womanizer, he repeatedly proves his own worst enemy. In the midst of remodeling his riverfront mansion and burdened with alimony, Brady is more than a bit cash poor, and he’s desperate for another bestseller. In an attempt to extract a new book, Brady’s publisher hires a publicist (Caitlin Keats) to “clean him up,” but he’s anything but amenable to her help and is further distracted by an affair with his pretty assistant (Briana Evigan). The film – which was shot in Alton, Ill. – also stars
House speaker, a former pizza-chain CEO, and the presumed national frontrunner about whom no one seems particularly enthusiastic. •" She Loves Me Not" Nov. 24th at 4 p.m. The film's director is Alton native Brian Jun. A collaborative work from Brian Jun – a Metro East native and Webster U. grad who has made a
Lisa Edelstein (“House M.D.”), Joey Lauren Adams (“Chasing Amy”), and legendary actress Karen Black in one of her final film roles. Film Threat praises “She Loves Me Not” as “an engaging film about a seemingly unlovable man, wrapped in quick-witted patter one second and creeping suspense in the next.” • "Something in the Water' Nov. 24 at 6:30 p.m.
The director is St. Louisan Kathy Bratkowski. The film is about St. Louis music scene in the 60s/70s “Something in the Water” looks back at the unique set of circumstances that electrified the classic-rock music scene in St. Louis in the late ’60s and early ’70s. The documentary chronicles the advent of free-form radio at stations such as KSHE, the storied concerts at the Mississippi River Festival (MRF) and Superjam, and the area musicians who used St. Louis stages to reach a national audience. Featuring rare interviews, archived MRF concert footage, and photos from the musicians themselves, “Something in the Water” is a funny, honest, and unique account of “ground zero for rock and roll,” as told by those who played a major role in the emergence of classic rock in St. Louis. Interviewees include Rich Dalton, Mark Klose, David Grafman, Mark Boatman and Roger Boyd of Head East, Pat and Danny Liston of Mama’s Pride, Steve Scorfina of Pavlov’s Dog, Supe Granda of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, Lyle Ward, Ron Elz, Bob Heil, Steve Schankman, and Joe Edwards. •"We Always Lie to Strangers" Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. The film's director is Edwardsville native AJ Schnack. “We Always Lie to Strangers” is a story of family, community, music, and tradition set against the backdrop of Branson, Mo., one of the biggest tourist destinations in America. A remote Ozark Mountain town of just 10,500, Branson hosts more than 7.5 million tourists a year and generates nearly $3 billion in annual tourism revenue. At the heart of Branson’s appeal are the more than 100 staged music shows that have earned the town the moniker of “the live music capital of the world.” These shows are well known for their “family” style of entertainment. Crowds
from around the country, and particularly from the American Midwest, flock to Branson for this return to old-fashioned values. The filmmakers spent the past five years documenting Branson and profiling four families who live and perform there. For more information, visit www. cinemastlouis.org or call 314-289-

For The Edge Cedarhurst is celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the museum with new gallery exhibitions that will strike a chord with all age groups! Sound and Vision: Monumental Rock ‘n Roll Photography opened October 27 in the Mitchell Museum Main Gallery. Organized by the Columbus Museum, the exhibition presents forty stunning photographs of legendary rock and roll musicians by twenty of the best photographers of the time. The photographs, ranging from Elvis to Madonna, became famous after being published in major magazines or on album covers. Since the 1950’s rock and roll has developed as the most significant musical movement in contemporary culture. Helping define fashion, language, politics, and community, rock music continues to inspire and entertain audiences throughout the world. Cedarhurst curator Rusty Freeman commented, “Sound and Vision presents an extraordinary look at the intersection between popular music and photography.” “To broaden the scope of the exhibition, we are featuring three collateral guitar exhibits,” he continued. “Collectible guitars, from the collection of Michael Sarver, including a 1962 Fender Jazz Master will be in the Main Gallery. A collection, on loan from David Lister, of autographs on guitars by musicians such as BB King and Mick Jaggar will be exhibited in the Beal Grand Corridor as well as wall sculptures inspired by stringed instruments by SIU-C professor/ artist Najjar Abdul-Musawwir.” The Main Gallery exhibition, cosponsored by Bill and Barbara Beck, Cynthia Jones, Krehbiel & Associates, LLC, WDML 106.9 FM, and WSIU Public Radio/ WSIU Public Television will remain open through December 31, 2013. Admission to the gallery exhibit is $5.00 per person. Admission is free Tuesday through Sunday for members of Cedarhurst and children 10 and under.
