I’ve long since grown accustomed to nature-centered documentaries issuing stern warnings about the dangerous direction in which humanity’s development is taking the environment. So when I sat down to watch “Honeyland,” an intimate profile of an isolated honey harvester in the rural Balkans, I was fully expecting to be confronted with further evidence of the worldwide decline in honey bee populations. What I wasn’t prepared for was to witness the complete and systematic destruction of every aspect of this poor woman’s life and livelihood, offered up onscreen without any comment. more
Just a man and his guitar. That’s Englishman Rupert Wates’ distillation of his latest album: “Full Circle.” “All of the influences that worked on me when I was a younger man are evident in the writing and the performing of that CD,” Wates said.

In some circles, there has been quite a lot of hype about this word.” more
When Janna Marit writes the lyrics for her original music, which she describes as circusy cabaret with a splash of folk, she tends to be a bit mysterious with her meaning. “It is not frivolous,” she said. “My songs tend to be whimsical but have depth and are saying something, albeit sometimes in an obscure way.” more
Twice, they came straight at me. Staring down a jetboat doing up to 80-90 miles per hour after it careens out of the water channel is no laughing matter. “You do a dangerous job,” one specatator sitting behind the fence told me after I made like a deer and fled “Blew Bayou” as it missed a turn and launched towards the portion of the fence I was standing in front of.
