    SECTION TWO: ENTERTAINMENTS

    BDPOE's ROCK Update:


    
    ROCK TALK  with bdpoe
    
    Well its October and you know what that means. Time to get
    ready for Christmas! Seems the local stores are sneaking 
    out the yule tide inventory earlier each year. So are the 
    record companies and rock artists, making the next few months 
    the hottest time of the year in music.
    
    By the time you read this, many new releases will  be arriving
    at local retailers. There are going to be several reissues and
    compilations by groups who haven’t performed in years or have 
    long since left the building.  Just how many ways can you 
    re-package a Beatles’ album anyway ???
    
    Paul McCartney’s  RUN DEVIL RUN, is a well put together 
    collection of oldies by the likes of Presley, Perkins, Berry 
    and Vincent. It features Pink Floyd’s David Gilmore on guitar.
    
    David Bowie recaptures the 70’s sound that made him famous in 
    his latest release Hours. This is an interesting album and 
    better than some of David’s offerings.
    
    Natalie Merchant will release a double live cd featuring a 
    cover of Bowie’s Space Oddity, and dig this Major Tom, a cover
    of Neil Young’s as well.
    
    The Doors box set The Complete Studio Recordings is also due 
    around mid October. It will also feature a essential rarities 
    bonus cd and all original studio recordings have been 
    digitally remastered.
    
    Lou Reed will tour later in the year to support his upcoming 
    Ecstasy cd which features an 18 minute song. The album is lush
    and melodic and differs from Reed’s under produced offerings.
    
    Crosby Stills Nash & Young’s  cd  should be in the stores this 
    week but due to Graham Nash’s boating accident in which he broke 
    both legs, the tour has been postponed until this winter.
    
    Three Dog Night is rumored to be releasing an album as well.
    No word yet as to its material. Currently the band tours without
    Chuck Negron who sang lead on many Classics like Joy To The 
    World, One, and Eli’s Coming.
    
    Yet another WHO reunion takes place at Chicago’s House of Blues 
    to benefit Neil Young’s Bridge school charity. Currently
    Pete Townsend has a recent live cd out.
    
    Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page is set to perform onstage with The 
    Black Crowes with gigs in New York and Los Angeles. They plan 
    to cover Zeppelin classics and blues covers.
    
    Bob Dylan and Greatful Dead’s Phil Lesh and friends are set 
    to do a limited tour this fall. The Buzz is that PHISH members 
    will make a guest appearance at some venues.
    
    Chris Gains, The Artist Formerly Known As Garth, might have 
    a chance at one or two songs charting. But overall its a 
    disappointing  effort. The song Maybe ,a rocking rap , might 
    be the strongest cut on the album. Brooks’ alter ego looks 
    like a chubby version of Prince but Garth claims the inspiration 
    for the character was Aerowsmith’s Steven Tyler.
    
    Neil Diamond tours again with shows slated for December.
    He remains a charismatic and stunning performer not to be missed.
    
    Rock on Boomers!

    American Boomers

    American Boomers to Inherit $10 Trillion
    Contrary to prevailing stereotypes of broken down and 
    broke old geezers, today's senior Americans constitute the 
    richest, most politically powerful segment of the U.S. 
    population. In fact, these senior adults will leave their 
    children and grandchildren an astonishing inheritance of 
    $10 trillion in cash and assets. In his new book "Funny, 
    I Don't Feel Old" (ICS Press, 1997), author Carter Henderson 
    breaks through the stereotypes of our age-conscious society 
    to reveal a market segment that already has a discretionary 
    income equal to all other age groups combined. "Households 
    headed by people age 50 and older have close to $1 trillion 
    in annual income, control half the nation's discretionary 
    income, own three-quarters of all financial assets, and have 
    a net worth totaling a staggering $6 trillion-plus," says 72 
    year old Henderson. According to the author, the 50-plus 
    population represents a viable market. 
    median wealth of senior households is $90,000, compared to 
    $40,000 for all Americans. 
    40% of the nation's stocks and mutual funds are controlled 
    by the 65-plus population. 
    25% of the 65-plus population is self-employed, versus 10% 
    of all workers. 
    85-plus consumers are the fastest growing consumer group in 
    America. 
    The author offers numerous illustrations of this new wave 
    of "OPALS" (Older People with Active Lifestyles) including 
    94 year old U.S. Senator Strom Thurmond (SC), 82 year old
     barefoot water skier George "Banana" Blair, and 77 year 
    old astronaut John Glenn. "Funny, I Don't Feel Old" is in 
    bookstores now.

    By Jeri Maier "Y6B" is a milestone in history for World Population. In just 12 years, humans have increased their number by 1 billion. During the 20th century, the world's population has tripled. By 2100, ecologist David Pimentel of Cornell University warned in a recent paper, ''12 billion miserable humans will suffer a difficult life on Earth.'' Of 370,000 children born this Tuesday Oct. 12, a majority of them will be poor. Half will be Asian and one of these chidlren will be the planet's 6 billionth person.

    October 1999 Boomer Of The Month 
    
    Congratulations to Anne 
     
    Meet Anne: FLowerChild1967/BunnyLoverA
    
    Anne, a flowerchild from the late '60's, still hangs
    on to the ideals of her youth in many ways. A TRUE
    Donovan fan through the decades, she named her only
    son, Donovan. (This great honour helped her to meet
    her idle (Donovan Leitch) several times!!)
    
    She's the single parent of a wonderful, musically
    talented genus, who turns 20 Oct. 3rd.
    
    An artist all her life, she made a living as Toronto's
    BEST Middle Eastern Dancer (Belly Dancing) for over 25
    years. She loves the stage, theatre & film and
    although a back injury has ended her dancing career,
    she continues to work in film & television as a
    background performer...always hoping for that LUCKY
    BREAK!!!
    
    Principal role as Lady in the Street for the
    evangelical film "Apocalypse:Caught in the Eye of the
    Storm" was her most recent.(a Jack Van Impie
    Production)
    She played the Belly Dancer in the film, "Two Men"
    directed by Gordon Pinsent, and also in a segment of
    SCTV starrring Rick Moranis & Dave Thomas.
    Anne has been teaching her theatrical & artistic craft
    in Toronto Public Schools for 2 decades and enjoys the
    role as educator and is currently back in college
    earning her TESL certificate...(Teach English as a
    Second Language). 
    
    English grammar is no stranger to Anne, but creative
    writing is one of her passions. She writes satirical
    stageplays for her young students to perform, as well
    as midieval, bawdy plays for her hobby group, the
    SCA..The Society for Creative Anachronism. She becomes
    a 9th century Byzantine named Anastasia Angelus
    Corinthios or a 16th century innkeeper of "The Olde
    Frothing Frog", Lil O' London Now O' Eoforwic.
    She creates her own period costumes designes
    instinctively!!!
    
    Anne is an animal lover, mother of a cat named
    Patience, a bunny named Pip, a green frog named New
    Guy, (and 35 shubinkin born in her backyard pond!)
    As a pond keeper and enthusiast, she enjoys her summer
    days in the back yard, making a wild garden for
    butterflies and frogs/toads and ALL the birds that
    happen to pass by. Although she lives in the heart of
    a big city, her home is an oasis for mother nature,
    family, friends and her sanity.
    :-)
