WMFE 90.7 goes all talk and news

October 12, 2009
By

There’s something in the air over at public radio station WMFE (90.7-FM): We’ve heard gurglings that the station is going all talk and news at month’s end. Yay!

First Shot: Finking on your Friends

October 9, 2009
By

There’s an interesting piece in the current New Yorker about Deadline Hollywood Daily’s Nikki Finke. Obviously, Finke is a key figure in film reporting, and many people (including me) would be worse off if not for her bulletins. So it’d be hypocritical to join in a chorus of criticism against her, especially when the...

First Shot: Because the name “Overkill” was taken

October 7, 2009
By

Let’s get one thing straight: I adore the movie Anvil: The Story of Anvil. I’ve seen it twice in two different U.S. states. I’ve tried to recommend it to everyone I know who has ever played music professionally. (The scene in which Lips gets the shady promoter up against the wall of his club...

Season of the Witch again at Enzian

God I’m old. I remember seeing The Blair Witch Project at the Enzian for the first time. Sitting in that dark theater, I’d heard the buzz about this little Orlando film and how its Internet presence that touted verisimilitude as a kind of cinematic performance art – as if they’d never heard of Cannibal...

Our area’s own derby girls

If you’ve read my review of Whip It, opening tomorrow, then you know I’m a pretty huge fan of the film. But roller derby itself? Can’t say I’m familiar. That’s gonna change soon, I hope, because now I know that Deland has its own team. The Sintral Florida Derby Demons, whose season runs from...

Cattle Call: Put ‘em in the wall!

September 30, 2009
By

My favorite pinball machine of all time was based on the sport of roller derby. There was something so fluid between the electronic announcers calls and the directions that little silver ball would take. I used to play it for hours (or to the end of $5, whichever came first) at the putt-putt golf,...
