Singer Jimy Sohns posted this statement on his Facebook page and gave us permission to post:

My dear friend Jimy Rogers,the other Jimy with one m, died of cancer
this past weekend. As some of you know, I rehearsed the first lineup
of the Mauds when Jimy was in high school and hand picked them to
replace us when we left the Cellar to play other places-he even toured
as me in the Shadows when I was sick. We have always been close and he
will Always be in my heart. I loved Jimy Rogers for the kind, gentle
soul he is and the amazing talent he shared with us......when I listen
to the wind I will still hear him sing........Hold on Jimy, some day
we will finally be in the same band. Rest in Peace my friend, JIMY

When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

“Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides” is written by “Pirates” veterans Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio. The executive producers are Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, Barry Waldman, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and John DeLuca.

CHICAGO LIVE! Taping Comedy Music and Commentary !



Last night I photographed the CHICAGO LIVE! Taping Comedy Music and Commentary and the lovely basement(I mean this!) of the Chicago Theatre on State Street.

I don't recall ever covering a live radio show and the only other time I've been in the basement of the Chicago Theatre is for the annual Macy's Glamorama event when they do the photo ops and interviews before the show starts.

The basement theatre is comfortable with ample seating for smaller events and good sight lines to the stage. It's much smaller and not ornate like the main theatre is upstairs though.
Last nights line-up with host Rick Kogan included Blackhawks Head Coach Joel Quenneville, Musician Robbie Fulks,and Post-Election Dissection.
My favorite local author and friend Jenniffer Weigel interviewed author Jacqueline Edelberg who wrote,''How to Walk To School'. They discussed the Nettlehorst School,one of Chicago's oldest north side schools that she helped transform into a vibrant educational community.



CHICAGO LIVE! is a weekly live radio show taping showcasing who and what is making news in Chicago each week. CHICAGO LIVE! features topical comedy sketches by members of the award-winning Second City, interviews with front-page newsmakers and athletes, and rare, up-close performances by talent typically headlining on theater and music club stages, all in a fast-paced 60-minute program at the intimate Chicago Theatre Downstairs, 175 N. State Street, Thursday evenings, through November 18,2010 at 6:30p.m. A “meet and mingle” reception with the cast follows each taping.



CHICAGO LIVE! is presented by the Chicago Tribune, in partnership with The Second City, and utilizes the abundance of expert talent from each institution. The live shows are taped for broadcast (and podcast) the following evening on WGN Radio (720AM) Fridays at 11p.m. (or midnight, based on sports coverage).



“This is a fascinating and bold ongoing experiment,” says CHICAGO LIVE! host Rick Kogan. “Bringing the newspaper to life on stage has been full of surprises and revelations. Considering the nature of Chicago and Illinois politics, there is no telling how exciting and enlightening our post-election show will be.”

The talent lineup for CHICAGO LIVE! on Thursday, November 4:



· Joel Quenneville, Head Coach of the 2010 Stanley Cup Champions Chicago Blackhawks, talked about the current season and the team’s awesome award-winning year with Tribune sports columnists (and regular CHICAGO LIVE! contributors) David Haugh and Steve Rosenbloom

· Live acoustic performance by alt-country hero Robbie Fulks

· On the heels of one of the state’s most heated Election Days, political commentary by a panel of winners, watchers and political writers.

· Jenniffer Weigel interviewed author Jacqueline Edelberg (How to Walk to School: Blueprint for a Neighborhood School Renaissance) about her grass roots efforts which successfully transformed the Nettlehorst School in East Lakeview.

· Topical sketch comedy from The Second City.

· All hosted by veteran Chicago reporter, author and radio/TV personality Rick Kogan, who also presents one of the show’s signature segments, “The Almanac,” a multi-media reminiscence of historic Chicago happenings in a particular year.

Upcoming CHICAGO LIVE! programs include special guests author Scott Turow, comedian Greg Proops, and Lyric Opera countertenor David Daniels (Nov. 11) and a special “foodie”-themed final CHICAGO LIVE! program, with local celebrity chefs Graham Elliot, Stephanie Izard and Paul Kahan, plus Michelin Guide Director General Jean-Luc Naret, and a complimentary after-party showcasing Chicago’s rich food and restaurant culture (Nov. 18).

CHICAGO LIVE! is one part of a new initiative of community outreach by the Chicago Tribune, which also includes “Chicago Forward: Conversations About the Future,” a series of live gatherings of policymakers exploring issues of great importance to the Chicago region; programs by columnists and personalities; literary events; and a series of classes and seminars titled “TribU Lessons for Life.” For 163 years, the Chicago Tribune has been a market-leading newspaper publication of Tribune Company. Reaching three million readers each week in the greater Chicago area, the publication is known for its award-winning journalism. The Tribune’s news focus is centered on watchdog coverage, the Chicago experience, community issues and government, the local economy and business, as well as entertainment, culture and sports.



The Second City is the nation’s premier developer of improv-based comedy and home to generations of the comedy world’s most influential artists. Additionally, The Second City is a diverse entertainment company that operates the largest school of improvisation in the country, a corporate communications division that brings improv training to a wide array of businesses and a new media division that leverages the legendary company’s expertise in topical, short form content across a variety of platforms.

MASTRO’S STEAKHOUSE MAKES ITS CHICAGO DEBUT!!!







MASTRO’S STEAKHOUSE MAKES ITS CHICAGO DEBUT!!!
location: 520 N. DEARBORN STREET (corner of Dearborn and Grand)
Chicago,Illinois

I was at Mastro's tonight with the crowd of priviliged fine dining-istas feasting on the seafood and beef tenderloin listening to the people around me rave and praise Chicago's newest hot spot.

A scene I noticed every few minutes was someone on their cell phone calling up friends excitedly chanting,'You'll never guess where I am' or, 'You won't believe this place! 'It's Incredible here!!'
The best one that included an animated character voice of,'I'm at Mastro's and you're not, Bye!"

I don't think I've seen more excited adults in one place since a St.Patrick's Parade on a warm day,but I have to agree. Mastro's is great,there is nothing you can't like about it!

If the location sounds familiar,perhaps you stopped by here in the 1990s when it was Spago.I know the last time I was in the building in 2008,my assistant Shannon and I were doing a photo shoot for Sundance and Robert Redford(yeah,*the Robert Redford* :-) when it was called the 'Blue Water Grill.' Mastro's has completely revamped the whole restaurant and it's beautiful. It's elegant earth tones,two stories,huge bar,main dining room,smaller party rooms as well, and it does have an elevator.They have the largest selection of liquor,wine and champagne that I have ever seen in one establishment.
Tonight at Mastro's in Chicago was a major feast with a variety of lavish buffet treats of items that are on the menu. Shrimp,bigger than my iPhone,lobster as big as a teenagers backpack, and the coveted lobster mashed potatoes being served up are heaven on a plate. I don't know what is in them exactly,but they start off with a serving of garlic mashed potatoes and then the server would ladle a generous portion of a thick buttery sauce with generous chunks of lobster ,vegetables and herbs.
They have a varied menu of Steaks,chops,seafood,potatoes and vegetables.

Presently they are only open for dinner and reservations are required.


For reservations call: 312-521-5100

A kinder Gentler Perez Hilton ?

I've been noticing the past few days that Perez Hilton's blog is different from what it has been in recent months. I confess,I read it..

Today he made a special announcement that he's no longer going to be a bully! You'll no longer see him picking on female stars with the hurtful nicknames he created. He realized he's growing up and even stated that someday he wants children.
With tears in his eyes,he posted a video message on youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glRZpHuGj6Q

I don't know how his new found attitude will play out with advertisers for the original perezhilton site but I'm sure this will open the door to new nasty bloggers that won't hesitate to step into his old shoes. Like the world needs more wastd bandwidth..


Personally I'd rather read a real paper magazine(or iPad edition) that put together an interesting story with beautiful creative photographs on a celebrity instead of paparazzi 'drive by shooting' photos or photos from a cellphone that are being more common place. After a few minutes of viewing blurry,fuzzy,ugly photos, I feel like I've wasted some serious time when reading most of the celebrity blogs out there.

Actor Ryan Reynolds and Director Rodrigo Cortes attended a screening of BURIED on at the Showplace Icon Theater in Chicago,Illinois.

The film opens in Chicago on September 24,2010

SYNOPSIS

Paul Conroy is not ready to die.

But when he wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why, life for the truck driver and family man instantly becomes a hellish struggle for survival. Buried with only a cell phone and a lighter, his contact with the outside world and ability to piece together clues that could help him discover his location are maddeningly limited. Poor reception, a rapidly draining battery, and a dwindling oxygen supply become his worst enemies in a tightly confined race against time. Fighting panic, despair and delirium, Paul Conroy has only ninety minutes to be rescued before his worst nightmare comes true.


BURIED is a Versus Entertainment production in association with The Safran Company and Dark Trick Films, a Rodrigo Cortés film.
