This Week’s Feature Story

Jazzing it up on the Hill Vanterpool, a gifted saxophonist born in Tortola where from an early age he was introduced to an eclectic blend of traditional and contemporary jazz, gospel, Negro spiritual, fungi and calypso styles. After spending time in the US perfecting his art by playing with world-renowned saxophonists, he returned to the BVI where he appeared with two internationally known artists, Joss Stone and Percy Sledge. Other International performers include Ryan Diehl from Maryland whose Trio presents exceptional musicianship in a matchless style that is inclusive and relaxed. Diehl has the incomparable ability to drum and sing traditional jazz standards with a modern, groovy edge that combines soulful singing and subtle humor. All proceeds benefit St Mary’s School, so enjoy a weekend filled with fantastic music on beautiful Virgin Gorda. Ticket prices are $40 for Friday (includes beverages and tapas) and $30 for Saturday.

Keeping Track of Things Have you noticed how your computer seems to have an uncanny knack of keeping track of things these days? For example, you might send an e-mail to a friend about plans for backpacking in France and suddenly you’ll notice ads for backpacking and places to see in France. How did they do that? Then you get that creepy feeling that maybe someone’s reading your e-mails. Unlikely given the number of e-mails out there, but you are leaving a trail of “keywords,” being picked up by other computers. Of course, apart from the creepy aspect of this, trails can be useful. Setting up an account with Amazon or Netflix, for example, means your computer can keep track of movies you have seen, books you have read and stuff you’d like to buy, watch or read in the future. Just recently, Netflix has started concentrating on TV series. It’s amazing how many series there are out there that I might have seen one or two episodes of or perhaps none at all, given the limited scope of our island viewing. So you start typing in your preferences from a list of “genres.” Things like “comedy,” or “romance” and perhaps a little “adventure.” And bingo, up comes a list of

titles just for you. This is how we started watching Castle, a series about a crime writer who tags along with a detective (who happens to be female and good looking) on homicide investigations. And guess what; he ends up helping to solve the crime. We started watching from series one, episode one. Our computer kept track of each episode watched. We got right up to Series two, episode 21 and Castle disappeared! I typed it in under Netflix’s “search.” Nothing! “They can’t have discontinued it,” I yelled at my laptop. I searched under every genre. Then I noticed the “contact us” link at the bottom of the page. I Skyped the number. “Oh, that’s terrible,” said the Netflix girl, who sounded about twelve and admitted she’d never heard of Castle. My wife gave her a quick description of the show. “Oh, that sounds great, I’ll have to watch that,” said the girl. “If I can find it.” She searched on her obviously superior computer. “Oh, yes. It’s here. I’m showing it. Let me look at your account.” She did some more searching. “Ok, you should see it now.” We breathed a sign of relief as the familiar picture came up showing the next episode we should watch. So just to think about this for a moment. Are we using technology to control what we watch, or is technology using us to control what we watch? Perhaps a bit of both.

Ask Koren Your personal E-therapist, is in the house!

Ask To Koren So Hard Say I’m Sorry A few days ago, US President Barak Obama apologized to the Afghanistan President because American soldiers had burned copies of the Holy Koran at their base. It must have been difficult for the president to have to apologize for something he didn’t do and to persons who had done much to violate his country and its citizens. However, we can learn some valuable lesson from his actions. 1. No one is too high and mighty to say, I’m sorry. Regardless of your status or position, if you have done something wrong, then acknowledge it. That is a perfect way to lead by example and to set the stage for true greatnes,s which is often accompanied by humility. 2. Do the right thing without having to be told to. As soon as we realize that something wrong has been done, either by us or someone we are responsible for, don’t wait for the “juice” to hit the fan, be proactive and step up to the plate and speak up. 3. Let your actions support your words. If you apologize for your actions or those of another, ensure that your behaviour afterwards shows that you are truly sorry and try to minimize the chances of that action recurring.

Limin’ Times Entertainment Guide

Saying I am sorry is a noble thing to do. We must be accountable for our words and actions, and understand that when we hurt others, there can be ripple effects. In this case, there were deaths of soldiers on both sides. We build character when we can accept our shortcomings and make an effort to do better next time. As a person of stature, Obama will be respected and hopefully, his example will help others to see that a true leader can admit when he or his team is wrong.

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 is the fourth movie in The Twilight Saga series. This two-part romantic vampire film is based on the novel Breaking

Dawn by Stephenie Meyer. This latest offering from the hugely popular cult series is probably one of the most eagerly awaited movies for many years. The film starts out with mortal, Bella Swan (Kirsten Stewart) planning her wedding to vampire, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). During the reception Bella reveals to her old friend and werewolf, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) that she and Edward plan to consummate their marriage during their honey-

Big Time Rush goes James Bond, with a Beatles soundtrack Viewers can almost hear the TV executives’ conversation that went into Big Time Movie, airing Saturday, March 10, on Nickelodeon. What do tweens and teens want? More cute, nonthreatening guys who happen to be decent singers and star in the hit show Big Time Rush. What’s a fun era? The 1960s. Which band could they do covers of and bring a new generation into the fold? The Beatles. And what device would make for a fun film? A James Bond-type international thriller with an intentionally silly plot.The process that went into formulating the film is obvious, but that doesn’t detract from its fun. Calling it a movie, though, which the cablenet does when anything is longer than a regular episode, is lofty since the final cut will clock in at 68 minutes or less. But it is indeed a romp, and it unabashedly bows before 1960s icons.Big Time Rush are the same four who have been starring (and go by their real first names) in the show: Logan Henderson, Kendall Schmidt, Carlos Pena Jr. and James Maslow. “The Beatles have always been a huge influence for me, and I am sure for many artists,” Henderson says. “The creators sat us down before we did the movie, and told us (of Beatles movies), ‘It is a little bit different than the movies you are used to seeing.’ It is pretty crazy and cool to see the dynamic the Beatles had in the movie.” The film has them land in London and immediateLimin’ Times Entertainment Guide

ly and unwittingly become enmeshed in a spy caper. The essential plot point is that one of their backpacks was switched with a backpack carrying an anti-gravity device in the shape of a beetle. The safety of the entire world hinges on who controls the device. Sir Atticus Moon, intent on world domination, is on a mission to acquire the metal beetle, and he dispatches his forces to retrieve the backpack from Big Time Rush. Meanwhile, Kendall’s kid sister, Katie (Ciara Bravo), has notions of becoming a princess. Carlos has been dreaming about rescuing a princess from an evil billionaire.

The Future of Tennis “So, who’s going to be the next Arthur Ash,” I asked the young enthusiastic kids gathered for the group photo at the Tortola Sports Club ahead of the BVI Lawn Tennis Association launching its ITF ranking system with about 70 in attendance. “Who’s the next Bjorn Borg?” “How about Yannick Noah?” I asked, as I got the who’s this crazy man look from the blank faces. “Ok, who’s going to be the next Tiger Woods?” I then asked. “He plays Golf,” was the response. “How about Roger Federer, who want to be the next Roger Federer?” I asked. “I want to be Djokovic,” said a young male. The future of BVI Tennis was taking shape as the association’s first Jr. ranking, ranking system was about to be unveiled after 1000 balls had been released with enthusiastic kids trying to see how many balls they could return to the bin. I was delighted to see the development. I recalled when I was Chef de Mission to the 2006 CAC Games when Tennis was making its debut, numerous questions were asked about the ranking of BVI players, as they needed an ITF ranking to be seeded accordingly. There was no system in place. Scott Bryson, one of the program coordinators said that the ITF has mandated that no tournament will be played with the regular balls and have introduced a red ball – for the introductory player – then an orange before progressing to the green ball. “Basically what this does is allow the kids at a very young age to play the game without the frustrations of a very bouncy ball,” he explained. “They can

actually learn to serve, hit the ball and score basically on their first lesson.” Paul Oliver – who later beat 1984 Olympian Keith Thomas in the NAGICO Open Tournament consolation final – emerged as the top under 14 player with a victory over Jeuron Smith while Nina Forte is the top female player following her triumph over Justine Bryson. Of the 70 participants, 40-45 were ten and under, which Bryson described as “very encouraging.” In complying with ITF regulations, Bryson said they knew from the start that they wouldn’t have 18 and under participants and noted they only had one male, so the concentration was on the 14 and 10 and under. He said they had a full draw in those two segments they wanted to focus on. The next move is to establish a points system Bryson said and they are looking at running about six tournaments annually, which will contribute towards the domestic rankings. Plans are to also compete in regional ITF tournaments and the association is looking towards a tournament in Barbados in late March and another in Trinidad. “We want to send hopefully two kids to each of those tournaments,” he said. 19

Breaking news: Mullally joins cast of Fox sitcom newcomer to the show: Welsh actress Erin Richards, who plays the new chief’s executive assistant. “She’s quite good, and she adds a fun element,” Mullally says. “And she’s not hard to look at. It’s a really fun group.” Joining an existing series isn’t new for Mullally, who did the same on the Starz comedy Party Down after Jane Lynch left to begin her Glee run on Fox. “I would say the difference is that on Party Down, they didn’t miss a beat,” Mullally notes. “They just plugged me in and carried on exactly the same as before. Breaking In has been completely revamped, and it’s almost like starting from scratch.” The fact that Slater’s character is no longer the boss alters Breaking In automatically. “Christian has so much energy, just a bottomless well of it, physically and emotionally,” Mullally says. “And it’s positive energy, which is great. “Since he’s No. 1 on the call sheet, that’s always a nice thing, and he couldn’t have been nicer in welcoming me. He sent me a lovely email when I decided to do the show, and he sent flowers on my birthday. He really is quite a gentleman, and we have good chemistry, which is helpful.” Though spouse Offerman is busy with his own series role as Ron Swanson, who has become iconic among Parks and Recreation fans, Mullally hopes he might have enough time to do a Breaking In guest shot before the season ends. “I would love that,” she says. “We’ve done an inordinate amount of things together recently, including three movies; one of them, Smashed, was just shown at the Sundance Film Festival. I think that with every project I do, they’re secretly hoping they can get Nick. And I don’t want to flatter myself, but it also might hold true the other way around.”

If it seems Megan Mullally is breaking her way into a returning sitcom, she actually was invited. A twotime Emmy winner as the high-pitched-in-all-ways Karen Walker on Will & Grace (still shown in weekday repeats on Lifetime, the typically amusing actress surely isn’t lacking work. She’s a regular on Adult Swim’s Childrens Hospital; she’s had guest roles lately on ABC’s Happy Endings and NBC’s Parks and Recreation (which co-stars her husband, Nick Offerman) and Up All Night; and she’s supplying voices for the soon-to-start Season 2 of Fox’s animated “Bob’s Burgers.” Mullally also is climbing aboard the second season of another Fox show. She plays the new boss of Contra Security as Breaking In resumes Tuesday, March 6, with the humor more office-based as she joins continuing cast members including Christian Slater, Bret Harrison and Odette Annable (who also is doing extra Fox duty as she films the final episodes of “House,” which will be back in April). “I remembered seeing the billboards, but I hadn’t seen the show,” the spirited Mullally recalls of receiving the Breaking In offer. “They sent me three episodes, and I thought, ‘This definitely has potential.’ I got on the phone with the producers, and they were very nice, and we talked about what qualities might play best for my character. Then they wrote two sample scenes, and I thought this was something I could have a good time with.” Though Michael Rosenbaum Smallville has left Breaking In, Mullally is enjoying working with another Limin’ Times Entertainment Guide
