KANSAS CITY SUNDAY NIGHT CINEMA!!!



We're working behind the scenes on the blog this evening but for the moment let's take a break from the news cycle, celebrate Abi Titmuss hotness once again and check-in with the local movie scene.

This week most of the world was horrified after watching a drive-by gunfire traffic clip featuring a family in the midst of gunfire . . .

Tonight, here's a brief moment of respite featuring more inspiring movie-making fare . . .

First up . . . A great look at the Kansas City creative class and a local finding her niche within the arts community . . .



And then . . .

City Market Sammy Cinema: "In this short doc the owner of a local Kansas City restaurant talks ups and downs of owning a small business and the love he has for it; and his customers."



Finally, an All-American group protest singalong:

"In February 2017, at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, we had the pleasure of capturing this moment! Conceived and arranged by MC Hansen of The Sentimentals and made possible with the help of 22 beautiful voices, we all brought this Woody Guthrie classic to life. Long live folk music and long live the collaborative spirit of artists everywhere!"



As always, thanks for reading this week . . . Hopefully, we'll have more for the morning update . . . STAY TUNED!!!

The Woody Guthrie classic is an American tradition. But singing it in other languages kind of sent the wrong message, no?

A couple of good clips here, nice to see that KC isn't all about protesting every day.

C'mon TKC, "This week most of the world was horrified after watching a traffic drive-by..."?! Nope, they were filling out brackets, stocking up their fridges and loading their likker cabinets, and losing the "news" fix for the duration of Big12. Hey, March Madness, man!

^^^ Agree. Most people under 30 were playing video games.

What happened to the folk enthusiast who did the Jackson Browne tribute? I guess his 70k miles in oil pipelines made him cool it from the conference or do the billionaire's just stay on the top floor and send for singers and musicians?

9:42. only singing it in other languages begins to, maybe, make sense, because this isn't "your land", or "my land", this land belongs to the indigenous people.

1:32, that's been pointed out many times. I'd say it's like talking to a brick wall, but the brick wall would get it eventually. Funkhouser never will.
