In the next edition of Life Elsewhere, frequent contributor, film, and media critic, Bob Ross stops by to bring us up to date on current films he suggests are worth watching. Bob manages to give his take with a slight nod and a wink, but then, we’ll ask Bob to tackle a serious topic. We’ll discuss a movie that has been mentioned all too frequently in the news over past few days since the tragic events in Charlottesville and, the comments by Mr. Trump. That movie is the 1915 silent epic drama, directed and co-produced by D. W. Griffith, starring Lillian Gish, The Birth Of A Nation. The screenplay was adapted from the novel and play The Clansman, both by Thomas Dixon Jr.
Music has always been an integral part of Life Elsewhere and in this edition, we introduce you to Canadian singer-songwriter, Dana Gavanski. Her new beautiful single, How Much Is Enough?, taken from her debut EP, Spring Demos, out on September 12th on Fox Food Records. We’ll also hear from Bunny a band out of Chicago. Fronted by Jessica Viscius, who manages to erotically whisper on Let Me Be Your Dog, three words, “bow wow wow”, that we promise you will never hear or say the same way again. Bunny is set to release their EP Sucker later this year. For a regular input of new music, make sure you go to Life Elsewhere Music, available right here and over at Mixcloud.
To round out the show, Norman B talks with Jarett Kobek about his new novel, The Future Won’t Be Long,. It’s a gritty, unflinching, name-dropping & juicy chronicle that focuses on ten years, from 1986 to 1996, the heady period of excessive club kid culture, set mostly in New York. Could this be a veiled autobiography? Find out, when you hear the next edition of Life Elsewhere.
