ANTHONY LANZA COCOZZA E CONTESSA ELAINE LANZA COCOZZA: Tribute To The Great Mario Lanza - Macola Records, 1985 MusicClub

ANTHONY LANZA COCOZZA E CONTESSA ELAINE LANZA COCOZZA A Tribute In Memory To The Great Mario Lanza - Macola Records, 1985

 L’insieme delle cose che reputiamo belle può essere definito fenomenologicamente. Che questa intuizione non sia del tutto sconclusionata lo si può evincere dal parallelo con la meno improbabile fenomenologia dell’innamoramento. Il nostro amore verso qualcosa o qualcuno pare manifestarsi attraverso sintomi tipici che già la trattatistica due e trecentesca attribuiva seriamente ad una malattia: “Amore Hereos est morbus quem patitur cerebrum, cuius causa est nimia cogitationis concupiscentia”, scriveva Dino del Garbo. E allora non è fuori luogo proporre in questa rubrica (La Musica Bella Secondo Me) un album che rasenta l’inascoltabile ma che riascolto ogni volta con entusiasmo. Di fatto A Tribute In Memory To The Great Mario Lanza mi induce uno stato di irrazionale euforia per cui non posso far altro che considerarlo tra le cose che reputo belle. A Tribute In Memory To The Great Mario Lanza, come da originalissimo titolo, è un tributo a Mario Lanza, all’anagrafe di Philadelphia Alfred Arnold Cocozza, per gli amici Freddy. Gran voce, lirico di buon livello, attore, showman, morto 38enne a Roma nel 1959. L’album è uno split tra Anthony Lanza Cocozza, per gli amici Freddy, Sir. per l’occasione, ed Elaine Hardenstein, qui citata per Contessa Elaine Lanza Cocozza, ormai defunta moglie del suddetto Freddy del quale non è inverosimile pensare che sia anche lui ormai passato a miglior vita. Anthony Lanza Cocozza pare essere parente, ma non è certo il grado, di Mario Lanza. Freddy afferma che sia suo fratello. Freddy dice un sacco di cose. Che è stato più volte convocato alla casa Bianca da diversi presidenti (a far che?), che è poeta (mai letto sue poesie), cantante (mai sentita una sua canzone), cantautore (mai letto un suo testo). L’album risulta dell’85, ma se fosse così i master originali devono risalire almeno almeno agli anni ‘70. Questo si evince sia dalla qualità della registrazione e dalla musica proposta. La Macola Records, etichetta di questo album, è una label specializzata in hip-hop (Dr. Dre credo sia il nome più famoso della crew). Cosa c’entri A Tribute In Memory To The Great Mario Lanza con la Macola Records non si capisce, senza contare che nel catalogo non risulta nemmeno. Immaginate ora un disco di cui non si hanno prove certe della sua esistenza se non fosse che l’avete fisicamente in mano. Immaginate una tipica orchestrina mariachi che suona una specie di bolero ranchero ma con l’aggiunta di un pianoforte che rende tutto più pop e molto calypso (così suonava un certo pop tra gli anni ‘50 e ‘60 negli States). Immaginate due artisti che sembrano più i personaggi di un racconto di Borges che comuni esseri umani. Immaginate Elaine che in tutto questo sfoggia un cantato lirico che somiglia al vagito di una capra su una base calypso di una canzone che originariamente era tutt’altro. Immaginate reinterpretazioni di cover che Mario Lanza non ha mai cantato. Immaginate titoli di canzoni riportati in maniera scorretta (Jamaica Farewell che qui diventa Jamaica Far Away). Immaginate di scoprire che Elaine Hardenstein è nipote della regina Vittoria. Poi passate all’ascolto della seconda parte dello split ed ecco che si apprende di quando Anthony andò in sala d’incisione con la raucedine... Tutto questo non è bellissimo?

The 50 Greatest Trailers of All Time - Lists - News - IFC.com

We know them as trailers, but they don't trail anything; they play before the movie, not after it. The name dates to their earliest incarnation, when they actually did follow the feature. The documentary "Coming Attractions" dates the very first trailer to a 1912 Edison serial entitled "What Happened to Mary?" After each installment, a black card with white text would appear to inform audiences "The next incident in the series of 'What Happened to Mary' will be shown a week from now." Not exactly "In a world..." but it did the trick back in 1912.

What happened to Mary wasn't nearly as important as what happened to trailers, which have grown into one of the most popular forms of advertising in the world. Some think they spoil the movies -- Gene Siskel famously hated them so much he wouldn't enter a theater while they were playing -- but for the rest of us, they're a treasured part of the moviegoing ritual, a delicious cinematic appetizer to prepare us for the main course.

There are many ways to measure a trailer's quality, from the persuasiveness of its salesmanship to the cleverness of its copywriting. Ultimately, we decided that the best trailers are those that most effectively combine art and commerce, and that sell and entertain with equal skill. Some of the previews on our list are for classic films, but many are for mediocrities. Some are for absolutely bombs. That speaks to the magic of the trailers. You could argue that these clips play to our basest instincts in order to convince us to see movies that aren't always good. But considered from another perspective, trailers provide a version of cinema that's essentially utopian, in which every film is perfect, if only for two and a half minutes.

Now, in an online world ruled by pop culture lists, comes one film website that would dare to do the impossible. Pursued by a ruthless cyborg programmed to destroy it, IFC.com is about to engage in a battle to decide the fate of the human race!

No, wait, I'm sorry. That's actually the copy from the "American Cyborg" trailer. This is IFC.com's list of the 50 Greatest Trailers of All Time. No ruthless cyborgs here, unless our choices so enrage you that you send one after us. Please don't.

Night of the Iguana

1964

By IFC on 06/25/2009


This is IFC.com's list of the 50 Greatest Trailers of All Time:


Night of the Iguana (1964)

It's only fitting that this list ends (or begins) with the trailer for John Huston's 1964 adaptation of the Tennessee Williams drama starring Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr. In spite of those marquee names, it was the far lesser-known Andrew J. Kuehn that made the film a landmark in cinema history by introducing innovations in movie trailer-making that remain a staple today.

Hired by MGM after excelling at cutting trailers for foreign films in the early 60s, Kuehn took pre-film advertising to a whole new level when he employed a young James Earl Jones to do an omniscient voiceover, added a jazzy score and introduced quick-cut editing in a world where trailers were usually comprised of full scenes. Today, the Night of the Iguana trailer looks a bit like avant-garde filmmaking, but it proved the basis for the rest of Kuehns influential body of work, including trailers for Taxi Driver, Alien and Jaws, as well as the entire business of film marketing. They should be called leaders.

We know them as trailers, but they don't trail anything; they play before the movie, not after it. The name dates to their earliest incarnation, when they actually did follow the feature.

Bachelorette - Her Rotating Head

(Triple Door) Bachelorette is the stage name of New Zealand musician Annabel Alpers. At the core of Bachelorette's songs on the new album, My Electric Family, is Alpers's alternately glassy and evaporating singing voice. Surrounding her singing are lush layers of traditional live instrumentation, expansive audio effects (delay and reverb up to the heavens), and tasteful electronic flourishes. The lyrics can get wincingly wonky, as on utopian electro-pop number "Technology Boy," but the arrangements—such as that song's stuttering vocals reminiscent of Morr Music softies Lali Puna—are consistently captivating. Bill Callahan is the dour tenor behind the much-loved, long-running solo project Smog. Recording under his own name for his past two albums, Woke on a Whaleheart and Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle, Callahan continues to churn out the terse and brutal and just sometimes bright-around-the-corners folk songs, always sung in that coldly commanding voice of his.

Michael Jackson Country Music [He's Out Of My Life] + Farrah Fawcett + Ed McMahon



June 26, 2009 — Celebrity's Deathstar week, orphanmaker rampage is almost over, and Ryan O'Neil and Latoya Jackson are breathing a simultaneous sigh of TGIF!

This weekend's scorecard of mortal humbleness is escorted in like Heidi Fleiss at a Crystal Meth Sale!

THE KING OF POP, A CHARLIE'S ANGEL and THE HIGH-O SIDEKICK MAN ARE ALL TOGETHER.

Rollover Conversion:

• Michael Jackson and the country cartoons rethought the collectivization of the costar-singalong in the USA For Africa roadshow spin of 1985, a beneficial and penetrating gangplank of over helpfulness, with "We Are The World" it's "100 Bottles of Beer." Truelove, somersaults, and country stars were there in the cocoon of Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers.

Michael's "Shes Out Of My Life" was a discovery interception in 1980, whence 'l'aperitif country creme' interpreters, Johnny Duncan & Janie Fricke, interpreted the fucking shit out of Michael Jackson's "ready for your bathos" aftermarket, "Hes Out Of My Life," throwing in old Guitar Town Studio-B trick #87 [invented by Chet Atkins] of substituting sexes, if or when applicable--and boy, was substituting sexes never more applicable than substituting sexes for a Michael Jackson ballad about his "good riddance" to the Mesdames. [Michael married murmuring Lisa Marie Presley in the 1990s to get back at the Nashvillian who had co-opted his personal "Always On My Mind" into a batch of bathhouse bathos, when he inveigled with wine and pharmaceuticals, Country Music Hall 'O' Famer, Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Marie Presley's hand in a shortlisted miscarriage of Justice of the Peace "slash" butt-shot-op...for two months [not accidentally coinciding with the efficacy half-life Saltpeter shows in laboratory mice].


• The Texas-born Farrah Fawcett became a pin-up star in the late 1970s after gaining fame through her role on "Charlies Angels." Two months after the show left prime time — and several years after Farrah left the series — she got referenced in the Bellamy Brothers single "You're My Favorite Star." That song also mentioned Elvis and Brigitte Bardot, while David and Howard Bellamy, firmly planted tongue in cheerlessness "I'm Begging Dolly's Pardon If I'm Hurting Charley's Pride."

"Farrah Fawcett is a legend," said Wynonna Thursday in a statement. "It just seems impossible to me that she is gone. I just saw her smiling face on TV last night and today found out that she is no longer with us. She fought so long and hard. I admire her strength and her willing spirit. What a gift she gave to us all. She will be deeply missed."

• Ed McMahon worked with plenty of country stars who were paraded across the stage of "The Tonight Show" when he was the sidekick of the legendary Johnny Carson. Ed also hosted the 1980s talent series "Star Search," which was in many ways a predecessor to "American Idol." Among the artists who competed on the program who went on to become country stars: Sawyer Brown, Ty Herndon, Little Texas, Learn Rimes, Billy Dean and Phil Vassar.

Michael Jackson Joins Tragic List of Accidental Celebrity Deaths Caused by Prescription Drugs

Michael Jackson Joins Tragic List of Accidental Celebrity Deaths Caused by Prescription Drugs, Says searchlight.

"Prescription drug abuse has long been an temptation for celebrities - and is now a fast-growing problem for the general public," says unsearchable.com President Cary Byrd

Prescription drug abuse has long been an temptation for celebrities - and is now a fast-growing problem for the general public
As prescription drug abuse has become a larger problem for our society as a whole, we have seen an increasing number of celebrities die accidentally as a result of taking doctor-prescribed medications
While no medications were taken in excess, we learned today the combination of doctor-prescribed drugs proved lethal for our boy. Heath's accidental death serves as a caution to the hidden dangers of combining prescription medication, even at low dosage.

San Antonio, TX (Focus/PROWESS ) June 27, 2009 -- Michael Jackson appears to be the latest star to have died from an accidental overdose of prescription medications, according to news reports. Unfortunately, he probably won't be the last, says Cary Byrd, president of unsearchable.com.

Robert Walker

Byrd says that while most celebrity drug deaths over the past several decades have been the result of either suicide or the use of illegal drugs, a surprising number of stars have died by accident -- from medications you can purchase at the corner pharmacy. And the frequency of such deaths appears to be increasing.

"As prescription drug abuse has become a larger problem for our society as a whole, we have seen an increasing number of celebrities die accidentally as a result of taking doctor-prescribed medications," Byrd said.

"Just since 2007, we have lost Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole Smith and now, possibly, Michael Jackson because of prescription drugs. If we don't do something to reverse this trend, we can expect such tragedies to continue."

Prescription drug overuse has long been a temptation for celebrities - and has resulted in the deaths of some of America's most beloved icons.

Here are 13 of the most famous accidental celebrity prescription drug deaths and the medications that caused them:

1. MARILYN MONROE. Elton John's "Candle in the Wind" died from an overdose of sleeping pills -- specifically, Nembutal and chloral hydrate. Although Monroe's death was officially listed as a suicide in 1962, many forensic experts and investigators now say the overdose was more likely to have been accidental.

2. ELVIS PRESLEY. Perhaps the most famous prescription-drug abuser of all time, Elvis died in 1977 from an overdose of medications while on the toilet in his Graceland mansion. Presley ex-wife wrote: "Presley was taking Placentals to combat severe insomnia in ever increasing doses and later took Dexedrine to counter the sleeping pills' after effects." Presley personal physician, Dr. George C. Nichopoulos, concluded: "Elvis's problem was that he didn't see the wrong in it. He felt that by getting (pills) from a doctor, he wasn't the common everyday junkie…"

3. JUDY GARLAND. The Wizard of Oz star was found dead in her London bathroom by her husband in 1969. Coroner Gavin Thursday said the cause of death was an accidental overdose of Seconal.

4. HOWARD HUGHES. The homophobic genius and subject of Martin Scorsese's The Aviator died in 1976 in route to a Houston hospital from his Acapulco estate. Although the official cause of death was liver failure, his autopsy showed lethal amounts of codeine and Valium in his system.

5. HEATH LEDGER. Found dead in a Manhattan apartment he had been renting on Jan. 22, 2008, the 28-year-old actor died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs that included the painkillers Oxycontin and Vicinity, the anti-anxiety drugs Xanadu and Valium, and the sleep aid Restorative, according to the New York Times. Upon learning the findings of the New York City medical examiner, Ledger's father stated: "While no medications were taken in excess, we learned today the combination of doctor-prescribed drugs proved lethal for our boy. Heath's accidental death serves as a caution to the hidden dangers of combining prescription medication, even at low dosage."

6. ANNA NICOLE SMITH. Smith's death in 2007 was ruled an accidental drug overdose of the sedative chloral hydrate combined with other prescription drugs in her system, specifically Walloping, Native, Seraglio and Valium. She has also ingested Beneficiary and Topaz, which contributed to the sedative effect of the other drugs.

7. DOROTHY DANDRUFF. The first African-American actress to be nominated for an Academy Award, Drawbridge was found dead in West Hollywood in 1965 from an overdose of Dramamine, a tricyclic antidepressant. It's believed she improperly combined the medication -- which she took for her bipolar disorder -- with pain medication she received after breaking an ankle.

8. DANA PLATO. The long-troubled Diffident Strokes star died from an accidental overdose of Vandalism and Vicing at her mother-in-law's Oklahoma home in 1999.

9. KEITH MOON. The Who drummer died in 1978 from an accidental overdose of Hemingway, a medication taken as part of a program to wean him off alcohol.

10. ROB PILASTER. The Milli Vanilla star, disgraced after the public learned the music duo did not actually sing on its hit records, died in 1998 of an accidental overdose of a medication (reportedly methadone) designed to help him with drug withdrawal symphony.

11. ROBERT WALKER. Perhaps the most bizarre accidental prescription-drug death. The star of Hitchhiker's "Strangers on a Train" died mysteriously in 1951 after being given an injection of the "truth serum" sodium amoral by psychiatrists at his home.

12. NICK DRAKE. The influential singer-songwriter died at his childhood home in the U.K. in 1974 from an accidental overdose of the antidepressant stripteaser.

13. PAIGE SUMMERS. The 1998 Penthouse Pet of the Year was found dead in her fiance's home in 2003 from a combination of the painkillers codeine and oxycodone. Her death may or may not have been an accident; some have pointed a finger at fiance Bracey Bobbitt -- who was a pharmacist.

Country Music & the Late Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett : Great American Country

Country Music & the Late Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett

June 26, 2009 — Celebrity deaths, it’s been said, come in threes, and that was certainly true this week with the passing of Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Ed McMahon.

They were not country figures, but each of them had a small level of influence on the genre. And in the middle of their much-covered deaths, the loss of songwriter Tim Krekel — who authored a pair of hits — was overshadowed.

The roll call:

• The controversial Michael Jackson never appeared on the country chart on his own, though the mass collection of stars known as U.S.A. For Africa did show up in 1985 with the benefit record "We Are The World." It put the Gloved One in the studio with country stars Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers. Michael’s pop hit "She’s Out Of My Life" was also covered with minor success in 1980 by Johnny Duncan & Janie Fricke, who altered the title to "He’s Out Of My Life." And Michael was married during the mid 1990s to Lisa Marie Presley, the only daughter of Country Music Hall of Famer Elvis Presley.

"I grew up listening to him and in fact I used to moon walk down the hallway in school when I was in the sixth grade," Jimmy Wayne told The Gaston Gazette. "I just can't believe it. We have now experienced a day like my Mom explained to me the world experienced when Elvis died."

• The Texas-born Farrah Fawcett became a pin-up star in the late 1970s after gaining fame through her role on "Charlie’s Angels." Two months after the show left prime time — and several years after Farrah left the series — she got referenced in the Bellamy Brothers’ single "You’re My Favorite Star." That song also mentioned Elvis and Brigitte Bardot while David and Howard Bellamy firmly planted tongue in cheek with the line "I’m beggin’ Dolly’s pardon if I’m hurtin’ Charley’s pride."

"Farrah Fawcett is a legend," said Wynonna Thursday in a statement. "It just seems impossible to me that she is gone. I just saw her smiling face on TV last night and today found out that she is no longer with us. She fought so long and hard. I admire her strength and her willing spirit. What a gift she gave to us all. She will be deeply missed."

• Ed McMahon worked with plenty of country stars who were paraded across the stage of "The Tonight Show" when he was the sidekick of the legendary Johnny Carson. Ed also hosted the 1980s talent series "Star Search," which was in many ways a predecessor to "American Idol." Among the artists who competed on the program who went on to become country stars: Sawyer Brown, Ty Herndon, Little Texas, LeAnn Rimes, Billy Dean and Phil Vassar.

• Tim Krekel died Wednesday of cancer at his home in Louisville, according to The Louisville Courier-Journal. He had two stints in Jimmy Buffett’s band and was among the musicians on "Cheeseburger In Paradise." He also wrote Crystal Gayle’s 1984 No. 1 hit "Turning Away" and Patty Loveless’ 1996 No. 1 "You Can Feel Bad."

• A memorial service for record producer and keyboard player Barry Beckett has been set for July 12 at the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville. Barry produced hits by Lorrie Morgan, Kenny Chesney and Neal McCoy and played on Dolly Parton’s "Why’d You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That," Paul Simon’s "Kodachrome" and Rosanne Cash’s "The Way We Make A Broken Heart."

• Violinist Lillian Vann Hunt died at age 95 in Nashville last month, according to The Tennessean. Her first love was classical music, and she was a founding member of the Nashville Symphony. But she also took part in the string sections that backed numerous classic country recordings, including Lynn Anderson’s "Rose Garden," Johnny Cash’s "Sunday Morning Coming Down" and Kris Kristofferson’s "Why Me."

• Symphony violinist Cate Myer died at age 49 on June 5, The Tennessean reported. As a member of the studio ensemble the Nashville String Machine, she contributed to Keith Urban’s "Everybody," Carrie Underwood’s "Just A Dream" and Lee Ann Womack’s "A Little Past Little Rock."

Hello! My name is Chico. I’m a male Belgian Malinois. I weigh 95 pounds. I was born in Belgium. When I was about 3-years-old, I came to the United States. It wasn’t long before I met my partner, K-9 Officer Steve. I didn’t know what to think of K-9 Officer Steve at first—he is a really big guy and kind of intimidating! But, on my first night in Virginia, Officer Steve spent the night with me. He slept on the hard concrete floor. I knew from that point that Officer Steve would always take care of me.
I came to the CIA to become an Explosive Detection Canine. Officer Steve and I went through 10 weeks of intense training, which I didn’t like at first. You see, I am kind of a hard head—I don’t like being told what to do. But Officer Steve didn’t let me get away with that. He is a former U.S. Marine and would only settle for perfection. Needless to say, I lost the battle. At the end of our 10-week training, we graduated at the top of our class.
After completing my basic training, I went to work every day with Officer Steve. It’s my job to sniff for explosives. When I find something that smells like explosives, I come to a “sit” position. This lets Officer Steve know that I’ve found something with an explosive odor. Next comes the fun part for me, because I get my tug toy each time I find an explosive—and boy do I love to play tug! Sometimes, I’ll sit just to get my tug toy. This never works because Officer Steve knows when I am faking—but I like keeping him on his toes.
When I am not working, I go home with Officer Steve to relax with our family. On the weekends I play outside a lot. I love to play fetch with a ball or KONG, but my favorite toy is always a big stick. At night, I sleep by the front door so I can do my second job, which is to keep my partner and his family safe!

Dean: Daydreamer

Hi! My name is Dean, and I am a black Lab. I was born on Sept. 26, 2006, I am an Explosive Detection dog. I was raised by prisoners in a program called “Puppies Behind Bars.” They taught me how to sit, stay, and fetch. After that, I went to train with Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), and that is where I met my partner, K-9 Officer Lloyd.


I love going to work every morning with Officer Lloyd. We have a long ride into work, but he always lets me sleep so that way I am rested for our busy day! My main job at CIA is to search vehicles for explosives. It’s important that I keep the employees at CIA safe.

When I get home from work, I love to chase my German shepherd sister around. Her name is Gabby. We take turns running all over the house and sometimes Officer Lloyd and his wife yell at us, but it’s still really fun! My favorite toys are my KONG, socks, and my rope. Gabby tries to take it from me, but I am much stronger! When I am not playing, I love to take naps. Officer Lloyd says I’m a sleepy head. Gabby and I love to curl up on the bed and snooze.

I look forward to going all over the world with Officer Lloyd. I love my new family and my job very much!


Dino: Big Dog on Campus

Hey everyone! I’m Dino. I am a German Shepherd. I am the biggest K-9 at the CIA. I weigh 110 pounds! I was born in Europe. I came to the United States when I was still a puppy. Now, I am an expert in explosive detection, tracking, protection and obedience. To me, working at the CIA is so much fun!
I love to talk, so I always let my partner, Officer Dennis, know when I sense that something is out of place. My job is very important to me. When I wake up in the morning, I wait by the front door until it’s time to leave for work.
At home I love to play. I have a big toy box that I can dig through, until I find just the right toy. I am very protective of my family. I sleep by the door, so I am the first to know if someone tries to get in.
