This import CD is one of the best Blondie and Debbie Harry compilations for original music, unless one is looking for remixes and rarities. The 20-track disc covers the years 1977-1990, and includes "Heart of Glass," "Call Me," "French Kissin' in the U.S.A.," "Rapture," "Atomic," "The Tide Is High," and others. Very solid song selection (and track order). First released in 1993, the current version has superior sound quality…
The star of the spellbinding series reveals how the Potter phenomenon changed his life in this in-depth interview.
HARRY DEAN STANTON: PARTLY FICTION is a mesmerizing, impressionistic portrait of the iconic actor comprised of intimate moments, film clips from some of his 250 films and his own heart-breaking renditions of American folk songs. Stunningly lensed in color and b/w by Seamus McGarvey, the film explores the actor's enigmatic outlook on his life, his unexploited talents as a musician, and includes candid scenes with David Lynch, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Kris Kristofferson and Debbie Harry. The fragile soul of an actor emerges from the poignant collage.
B.C. bud inspires hemp-tinged parody of Harry Potter series BY Doug Ward Dana Larsen has written his own version of the Harry Potter series. Larsen has read all seven of the Potter fantasy novels and is a big Rowling fan. He acknowledges that others have called forth Harry or Hairy Pothead parodies, but said he's the first to roll the concept into a book. He said he hopes to follow Rowling's example and write sequels if his initial offering is popular. "If I attract only a tiny fraction of the audience Harry Potter got, then my book will be a bestseller." –Vancouver Sun, Sept 21, 2007
Potter Rotters CHEEKY cannabis fans have transformed Harry Potter into a dope-smoking "hero" called Hairy Pothead. "Hairy" is a "weedster" instead of a wizard. He studies at Hempwards School of Herbcraft and Weedery, where the teachers include headmaster Alwaze Duinthadope and Professor McGanjagal. Students at Hempwards are told that essential items of equipment include a glass "bong", or cannbis pipe, brass scales, a herb grinder and a "stash tin". The spoof is due to be published by Canadian magazine Cannabis Culture but Harry Potter author JK Rowling is unlikely to be amused. She has launched legal action in the past to protect her copyright. –Scotland Daily Record, Sept 23, 2007
