"Lost Keaton" and the Talmadge Sisters

By Justin DeFreitas
Tuesday September 14, 2010 - 03:05:00 PM

Kino's Lost Keaton release is perhaps misnamed. "Overlooked," "dismissed," or "neglected" might have been more accurate, for these films were never lost, but merely disregarded. -more-


Theatre Review: SPELLING BEE Serendipity:Who Knew there was a Real Pro Theatre in San Leandro?

I found a little jewel last Friday night. There is a small 67-seat theatre at 999 E. 14thSt. in San Leandro called the California Conservatory Theatre of San Leandro. They touted themselves to be a professional theatre, but I doubted it from the looks of their website and the fact that you can’t buy a ticket online. But they lived up to their promise. If I had paid double the ticket price for The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee musical, I would have gone home happy. -more-

Staged Reading: THE INEVITABLE by Bob Burnett

Tuesday September 14, 2010 - 08:59:00 PM

THE INEVITABLE examines Hillary Clinton’s failed bid for the presidency the most fascinating event during the 2008 presidential campaign. I believe the roots of Clinton’s failure were psychological. She began the campaign believing her nomination and election were certain and, therefore, lost touch with her primary intention. Once the bubble of inevitability burst, Clinton faced an external and internal crisis. She had to reorganize her political campaign and get her head straight. As Clinton struggled to get her political act together, warring instincts within her own personality battled on stage. By the time this conflict was resolved, Clinton had become the effective candidate many of us expected, but it was too late for her to overcome Obama’s delegate lead. -more-

Pow Wow Now: series about the Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day Pow Wow (part 1: Origins)

By John Curl
Tuesday September 14, 2010 - 06:07:00 PM

When I lived in the Southwest between ’66 and ’71, I attended a Ute sundance, many Pueblo Indian ceremonies and, when I worked on the To’Hajiilee reservation, many Navajo healing rites that few outsiders have ever seen. But I’d never been to a pow wow. The first pow wow I ever attended I also helped organize, on Berkeley Indigenous Peoples Day 1993. -more-
