Everyone stay with this work continuing to find out what's happening and we're going to be talking of the movie -- right after this. Hope that your planning your weekend fun and there is a lot of fun to be had but if you just wanna -- in the cool maybe a little popcorn. We got the guy here are -- Bork. -- -- Is that good to talk to -- today. It is fantastic -- you're right into the you know it's people don't want to go to quit Lyndon night they go through. He. Now my brother in law courts would never Patrick and poverty beat anybody in -- and -- one where other. But there's some great movies that are out there to do one and so excited about and eager to talk to the big board. Guardians of the galaxy. Well you know. Well it might have a and nephew who is cinematographer -- DP here in Packers need also a photographer. I think he's a different generation. In me he went to the last night. And the -- he left the party you don't. He -- -- is slightly. And it is it's a movie that I'm really. Did not be on the radar but people have been buzzing about. Form I'm listening audience out there it's from the more bull studios. Comes from. Comic book that started in 1960. Way back we. And real remember point story where -- -- -- the normal noise that great choice would be in all of their friends in the written this deployed. But they were scared. And the -- that it's sort of normal -- and now. That's what. Sort of the Chordiant that the galaxy. There -- is deployed. That turnout to be fun exciting. And wrap everything together so well there's no Captain America there's no four. But there's a whole new crop of characters. I keep seeing them in -- -- -- -- Vin Diesel being interviewed on every talk show and into and he plays the tree home. Which I think is a great Carrick I had noise when he does he only says three words the entirety. But that. And and -- under the fund things that. This movie and then I give him credit the writer has done a great job at taking what could be yes dale. Story line and has. Presented it in the very first waiter a lot of references to pop culture current things. That audiences. Is sort of being -- cat but the same time love and yet this or riding. And support -- the that the writer and director Jane gone. Is the same person who wrote -- story. Do they do and doobie dude two. Yeah. But he is not only. Making any name for himself and everybody's tripping over themselves congratulating him on this Chordiant that the galaxy. They've already signed up for the next sequel. It made over that in million dollars last night predicting. A hundred million for this weekend it's so. And find you movie that big crowd that loved it so if you walked -- and -- -- the guardian of the galaxy. But it not for you. You may want at the numbers that are in going to be in mind for its food -- ground biopic. Get on -- and he's seen the -- far you know line excited he'd just looked very. Com. They're getting to steal and the atmosphere in the music right at least in the four and the critics have been -- that only four. Spear of the -- but the main actor. He has done just an amazing job. You may remember the movie forty Tuesday came -- Q2 years ago. Jackie Robinson movie exactly yes OK good. And does the store that chat that Bachmann. Who started Jackie Robinson he's going into Libya's James Brown I mean talk about two movies to our Carlyle rolls. And the critics are all -- all clamoring to say -- and what a great job he does not. Trying to mimic James Brown but to embody him make him his own -- played them from age eighteen. To win he's in his sixties well. 21 of the things that now there -- other bio -- that are out there. But this one is directed by Kate Taylor. He is the director who brought -- the movie. The help. Few years ago. Oscar nominated is also won an Oscar for best supporting actress. And he had a great vision and help but taking. The sixties and bringing. Racial issues. From a human standpoint and not making him -- BA broad rushed. Storyline. But individuals storyline. And with him at the Helm I'm hoping that this will be the same -- get on up will be not gained ground as they. Big sweeping story but an individual's story and I think that that's what's going to make it a lot of fun I'm excited about that yeah that's awesome. Two great choices. There also some movies that are still out there from the last few weeks last week we talked about Lucy would turn out to be the number one movie he'd be Hercules last. Saw ant I saw it to you did yes O -- And I liked it it's very different but he kind of go with an open mind as a sanctuary and it's thought provoking but she is excellent int yeah. And in a good paced movie to be friends that I thought that saw it all said you know hey it's not too long it's a fun. Movies and they left enjoying the time there to about to Detroit that's still out there. And here in a lot of places we talked about it last week to view one more shot out. The Philip Seymour Hoffman movie -- most wanted band. It's not only still in the theater but it opened in more screens. So. There -- it is the story it's a front page on the coloring book. So -- -- -- real story. With lots of twists and turns. Extremely well acted. And it starts with people looking for this weekend there's an -- are great a great movie. You know that we tried to get and then they'd already sold out while you're out and over resistant. That time but I look forward to seeing them very much. So good choices for all of us I hope to see you at the movies this weekend. Are what are you going to do this weekend are you coming in for what -- Well you know few easy out there and you'll see me out there. I'd like I have to say that twenty years ago I was I was in line a lot of those art. Galleries. That there -- wonderful. It is. Art galleries and -- street gave it to shut out. I think that they invented to downtown warehouse district. That young leadership count he talked about today helped. Just really reinvigorate. The wall and in the eighties. And win. People just didn't know. How I give credit to the arts community. And that truly found. Young leadership council for doing great projects and getting people just up there. Since Katrina there's been this wonderful revitalization of this city everybody talked about outlaw -- is. So wonderful and so new and it is it is so great now. And I remember twenty years ago that same feelings started with the park community. And the young leadership council they were doing so many great projects. They really have and they continue to and it is because we're having such an influx of young people which thank heaven. It is a great way for them to to meet new friends. Yes yes it is it's wonderful. So -- you make seemed there. It is it's like -- said one of the best ways to see art is with a bunch of other people. You get to enjoy to experience two laps to small.

It and you know it was our turn on the world which -- -- great friend Laura yes look at a cleansing that's great while I used cars you know there are currently. -- you were wonderful if you always are and I know are seeing a lot of work and you do beautifully you make it look effortless it's not.

Financial is going to jail and I like this habit of your well being. We are back in hope and myself. Talk about things that are happening this weekend and and we love our weakened with loved the jam packed he got to really do have to -- them. Whether it be just you know what I'm gonna stay home Manama. Net promised at home and watch television watch how surprised -- the entire house of cards that are left over again because Asia. Or go to a movie is to borders and go to the wonderful such -- festival and their inning and of course white linen it's very special and we should mention. This tomorrow night -- white linen and the you know following Saturday. It is dirty land. But I guess that that is always following the next week and -- it's in the French Quarter and it's the same idea you walk around to go to the art galleries it's free it's fun. And something to look forward yeah I think there's acting as a for about crossover between those two crowds that'll -- because you spoke to Wear the same -- that you wore. The white -- -- you know aren't able to get well thirty and installed some wine on it maybe -- 830. Now this is a wonderful thing I love that dirty linen one hot night. And they'll also have great music and some other fun thing I love that I wanna tell you this is already passed and I wish it were continuing. Because last week -- and went to the World War II museum I mentioned to seat jump jive in -- yet. Let me tell you it was a it was a tribute to Louis Prima. Yeah this group. On -- believable. Every the guy who plays -- prima now is the body of Louie prima. Cool the woman who was a singer all of instrumentalists. Were and they apparently they. Pattern themselves after his guys they did such a great great thing and I really wish it were. If it's ever back that's my whole point that bringing they had brought it back for yes I'm so that is already while it seems fairly like is that the -- but it is and it's interesting because just yesterday. Louie prima son who was. Now band director you know on donated a bunch of money from this foundation. In honor of his father for. Something that they're going to create which is could encourage. Young people to become involved in jazz music cool for all the right reasons but it was like this is -- era of Louie prima yeah. And of course -- that the great program with his daughter who is now -- living here full time so talented yes and sings at the -- on things around town. So it's just the next generate. So cool I feel so blessed that my dad introduced -- -- prima you know grown up in Colorado I think I've felt I remember the first time I heard that we were driving around. The desert somewhere and he played this CD obviously that the criteria on collection -- build -- previously -- it's just I just. I love that album so much that I remember that as kind of being the key feature. Of this road trip that I took with my phone isn't that something 1980 -- something which you know he was in movies he wrote music. He was -- entertainer mean and even his son mentioned that they want him. People to remember him as the great musicians that he was yet which you wise and not just the great jokes stir and -- That's also a talent but it's good for us that he was in our lives for -- long -- you wise you know being alone next time. Well. You are just. That might be my favorite. You are something else now tell me what else is happening around. On that -- so I mentioned there's the show I'm -- -- -- on Sunday at the chatter box call that dying city by question it's kind of an interest in peace because it's produced by three. Individual artists who aren't part of -- collective -- particular -- company just three people who just fell in love with the script and they decided they wanted to do it. And you know I always liked goes support what they're doing the shadow box but the show itself sounds pretty interesting as well my understanding it's. Gulf war widow who is trying to put her life kind of packed together and then. Her husband her former ex husband who died in the war in his twin brother comes back. And I don't know very much more about it -- that but I thought that that was a pretty dangerous absolutely inning to apply you know I don't know that becomes romantic interest or. You know just having yours yours your husband's twin brother back in your life at that time when you're just -- -- Also we want a reminder but he kids during summer. River town theater does a great thing river town theater for the performing arts. On their whole summer season's gonna close out it's not this weekend or next but it's August 15 -- 24 but again he plan ahead. It's the Susan Cullen -- that shows put on a typical junior by kids for kids. So you know. Support the local talent as they say there is some not local talent is here tonight Sarah McLaughlin yes he's playing at the -- If I didn't have an excellent pre existing plans and -- -- go to to real soft spot for those like I don't know ninety's. Fan you -- -- voice yeah. Always -- And I'm not afraid to admit I would -- to -- -- -- owners and that would mean via via a sheets are still on sale started forty. Which I think is a pretty fair price to -- Sara McLaughlin I think so and she's just wonderful. The wonderful one for the humane society's right now I've had grown men tell me I cannot listen to song. Yeah because -- get tickets are weeping in such a beautiful song sung by her means. With pictures of the -- please adopt me. Also the mayor and opera house not this weekend but next time you're planning this. Appear rallied local dance troupe audacity dance collective Ali -- and that's going to be August 9 and tenth there any opera house. That's another venue how lucky we are note just on not it's just right around the corner from my house and now -- they cut the we're in the courtyard they have like a little yard offering you know now they put up a really nice points in the economy you know more inclusive so. Now -- -- indoor the old church with the actors and so beautiful architecture and then also the outside spaces I think really going to be. Cleaned up there I think if you look for a lot more. Weddings parties galas fund raising that nothing happening there yeah it is just -- really great venue we just to think just two or three years ago is just. Just a billion to church with weeds and cracks in marks and now. That's the premier place to go in the -- Stay with -- everyone we are still gonna talk about other things that are happening this weekend right after this. Welcome back and again I hope you're gonna have a beautiful weekend. If it -- so watched. You know I don't ignore looked at forecaster William -- tomorrow night it looked pretty it looked pretty OK for tomorrow night for -- and I mean I'm certainly not. You know meteorologists should listen to. To pinpoint forecast center for that stuff but mighty completely amateurish. Forecasting predicts and nicely and money concession in -- the fast. And you know I don't know if you were watch American Idol but this wonderfully young woman who won one year fantasia Perino.
