Episode 45: Joe Viers - "Waiting for Guffman"

8/3/2020
Sometimes you just have to laugh. When it's all going crazy or wrong, a bit of humor can prove proper medicine. With “Waiting for Guffman”, Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy present a film that produces snot bubbling giggles through its entirety. Using a mockumentary style, they allow hilarious "improv" comedy to shape this story of Community Theater gone so wrong that it's right. There has been no better friend to the podcast than Joe Viers. Our dialog has been deep and oracular. Each...

Episode 44: Bill Foley - "Glory"

5/29/2020
"Glory" is a pertinent choice for Bill Foley’s 2nd film. They’re both great, but first I have to deal with the pandemic and racial controversies in the room. I habitually push through trauma and drama in real time, then deal. However, this routinely reflective rehab is in my current face. Admitting a profound affect as an artist does peel back a sensitive layer. The conflict and loss is intense and I am on my knees. 2020 has taken an unexpected course and we will adapt our original plan (as...

Episode 43: Sean Carney - "Dracula (1931)"

3/29/2020
In 1931, talking pictures had found their monster voice with Bela Lugosi as "Dracula". The combination of his visual style and speech cadence helped lift his vampire off the screen. Many believe this iconic performance was the best of his life. I had seen Sean Carney play multiple times and recognized a familiar "Fort" professionalism. When I learned that he was Fort Hayes alum, I was not surprised. His playing has a distinct style and he has a flare for stage fashion. We sat with many of...

Episode 42: Will Newsome - "Xanadu"

2/10/2020
Xanadu? Yes, Xanadu. Even as a huge glorious flop, it still influenced the early 80’s style. For kids, this film seems like another world, animated and glowing. After we agree it’s not a great movie, the adult in us can look past the circus to see the lesson. It’s a teaching spectacle that survives as a musical guilty pleasure for many. Moving Music is responsible for relationships that transcend the project. Our brotherhood with Will Newsome advanced at the same time he lost his brother....

Episode 41d: TC and Ty - "The Previous Fifteen"

1/7/2020
It was September 2016 and I had been wrestling with myself all summer. I couldn't crack the combination to my own mind. Only when I cut myself out did the door to Moving Music open. These are stories that belong to other people. I realized my part was to be the steward of the diary, not the author. Ty Barnes has proven to be the best partner for this odyssey. The path didn't always jump off the page. This project demanded to drive its own course as we, at times, struggled with definitive...

Episode 41c: TC and Ty - "The Previous Fifteen"

1/3/2020
As we round 3rd base towards home in this retrospective, I am reminded of all the tragedies we pushed through in these last 2 years. At times, it was our developing Moving Music fraternity that gave us focus. Jimmy Mak shares his love of writing for the laugh, Matt Mees explains "The Righteous Groove", Dr. Phill Wilson teaches beyond the classroom, Mark Rhodes speaks of musical collaboration, and Kelly Bowman proves there is victory beyond just survival.

Episode 41b: TC and Ty - "The Previous Fifteen"

12/31/2019
This discovery continued through our next 5. Our identity evolved as our process shifted. There were real growing pains as we, at times, fought the changes. Moving Music was now in new territory without a map. We laughed and cried our way to an understanding. Jennifer Milligan helped us feel for the world, Robert McFarland finds passion through collaboration, Joe Viers taught us that it isn't always so serious, Bill Foley gave us a new perspective on life, and Missie Tong reminds us that it...

Episode 41a: TC and Ty - "The Previous Fifteen"

12/30/2019
These episodes yielded the vision that would start our evolution. It didn't come easy, but we recognized something was happening here. As we look back over our last 2 years, I feel overwhelming gratitude for how these artists entrusted Moving Music. While each has a connection to their film choice, we look between the lines and highlight the discussion within the conversation. Shaun Booker delivers wisdom filled insight, Jess Hanks gave an actor's perspective, Eric Gnezda coaches and...

Episode 40: Kelly Bowman - "Sling Blade"

11/30/2019
Not often does a script deliver like "Sling Blade". Some messages in the film are obvious, while others require multiple screenings. The genius of the writing is its simplicity. The complication is the audience. I won’t spoil it here, but just try not finding yourself somewhere inside the parable. Kelly Bowman is the definition of perseverance. A professional who is genuinely dedicated to the tasks she takes on. Her roles include survivor, mother, writer, singer, entrepreneur, psychic, and...

Episode 39: Mark Rhodes - "The Jerk"

11/8/2019
In the summer of 1982 I was playing Atari when I heard grand laughter coming from the living room. Not wanting to miss out on the joke, I ran into the room to find everyone in stitches and "The Jerk" on HBO. The original Saturday Night Live cast were comedy pioneers, and many, like Steve Martin, found their work climbing into the film world. "The Jerk" is humor at its finest, and one of the first from that group. Mark Rhodes is one of the great surprises for me in this Moving Music...

Episode 38b: Dr. Phill Wilson - "Spartacus"

9/16/2019
Stanley Kubrick is the Holy Grail for most modern film makers. It has been said that one of his films is like ten from any other director. The film of our focus, "Spartacus", furthered his reputation for being meticulous and unrelenting. This gladiator turned freedom fighter story influenced many long after Kubrick’s passing. It also smuggles in many social messages. Missing a consistent "father", I would have been lost without the composite of benevolent men like Dr. Phill Wilson. I learn...

Episode 37b: Matt Mees - "The Wizard of Oz"

7/7/2019
PART 2 In 1939 Hollywood had its greatest year. Ten years into The Great Depression, the population had a grand love affair with a movie that journeyed beyond reality. Through the years, it has been proven timeless as a children’s story, a philosophical metaphor, and as a musical influence. To many of us, it represents all that was pure during an innocent time. “The Wizard of Oz” is perhaps the most viewed film in history and the subject of our current focus.

Episode 36: Jimmy Mak - "Horse Feathers"

5/4/2019
What’s funny? It’s subjective, right? Before television, before movies, traveling vaudeville acts carried the same humor from coast to coast. When motion pictures (later with sound) showed up, these acts became recorded history. The Marx Brothers packaged their brand of vaudeville humor inside this cinematic Trojan horse. These brothers, each displaying a unique character, did it with unmatched genius. “Horse Feathers” is a film I still laugh with to the point of snot bubbles. It’s debatable...

Episode 35: Missie Tong - "The Decline of Western Civilization part 2: The Metal Years”

3/22/2019
I would race home after school to watch a half hour of 80’s metal music on MTV every day. The REAL good stuff was on a weekend night going into the morning hours. I saw some of the most amazing music videos of my life. Then, out of nowhere, 80’s metal seemed to “jump the shark”. The sound, the look, and the quality began to dive. Nothing was new, the genre didn’t evolve, and it all grew wider not taller. Director Penelope Spheeris held up a mirror to the sunset strip scene in “The Decline of...

Episode 34b: Bill Foley - "Gettysburg"

2/3/2019
PART 2 It has been said the hardest fought battles are those among brothers. By mid-19th century America this national sibling scrap reached fever pitch. In 1993, “Gettysburg” was the most ambitious attempt to depict the battle that changed the tide of our Civil War. I watched it on the big screen with big tears in my eyes. I have walked that battlefield and wondered how I might have died. This movie takes you there. Bill Foley has been a close Ft. Hayes brother since we met at the Funny...

PART 2 Hope through hopelessness can mean the difference between life and death. Those who give hope and help to others are among our best. “The Shawshank Redemption” is such a story. While poorly received in the theaters, it became the next year’s video rental hit. It rose to the top as the uplifting tale about one’s decision to “get busy living, or get busy dying”.
