L'AMOUR FOU
 
The public life of Yves Saint Laurent was as extravagant as it was decadent. As a design prodigy and then the grand coutourier of a fashion empire, he influenced fifty years of style, but few are familiar with the private life of the legend.
In L’
AMOUR
 
FOU
, Pierre Bergé, the man with whom Saint Laurent shared four decades of his life and love, reflects on the equally extravagant history of their personal relationship. Framed around the 2009 auction of the elaborate and priceless art collection amassed by Yves and Pierre personally over several decades, this extraordinary documentary provides an unprecedented look at the life of a mythic personality, whose personal life matched his public side for elegance, extravagance and passion.

Start Spreading the News

Headshot_bridge

With apologies to old blue eyes, I’m spreading the news. Big news. Readers of this blog know that for the past six years of The Urban Core I’ve covered a lot of territory. Both in the blog sense and personally. I’ve had lots of projects, assignments, and causes. One thing that I hope stands out is that I stood up and worked on things that matter, especially our perception challenged urban core neighborhoods. And when I got lucky, I actually changed a couple things for the better.

 

One of the greatest things about Jacksonville is that you can be a big fish in a small pond, even though there are a million of us Duvalians. Here, you can help a miracle happen and shake up the entire system. You can create and manage things that move markets and make significant economic and social change for the good. But Jacksonville isn’t the beginning nor the end of the world, is it?

 

I have always wanted to use my ability to tell stories and advocate for big projects and causes. That is why I am so happy to announce to my blog readers that I am joining the team at Keymer Group, a public relations agency based right here in Jacksonville. Keymer is a bit different than most Jacksonville agencies. For one they have few Jacksonville clients, though I aim to change that.

 

Keymer has a national reputation because the team has been busy building national reputations. Our client list is impressive. Thusly, much of the work I’ve been doing involves major corporations, huge issues, and major events. I’ve already brainstormed America’s reaction to a constitutional monarch in an Arab Spring country, written to several major newspapers, and chatted it up with a half dozen Wall Street Journal reporters. I’ve seen two of our current issues make national news and one is about to really take off. I am getting a lot out of these assignments professionally. Keymer does public relations properly. Its effects based. The goal is a business goal not getting coverage. It did not take me long to see why the methodology of effects based public relations works. And why, because of our wins, our clients are our biggest advocates.

 

As you can probably tell I am enjoying this. A lot. I look forward to working with my colleagues to move Jacksonville's interests and our dynamic community forward. To make big national headlines that reflect the amazing things that are happening here. And to stay on top of things that matter to our world. I will still be blogging, of course, and still busting my hump for worthy causes.

 

Like they say on the Onion News Network, you will be exposed to high levels of news.

 

Cheers, and thanks for your support.


Tony


PS- Thought I'd take us out with a jam. I mean hey, its still the urban core right?

Music Club at the Library! KICKS OFF WITH VON BARLOW!

von flier.pdf Download this file



The Quick Version - June 14th – this Tuesday coming up. Von Barlow’s Jazz Journey.   At the Main Library. For kids ages 6-14. He’s in the Jacksonville Jazz Festival Hall of Fame, and an amazing entertainer.

 Here’s a link to advertise online as well. http://jplmainchildrens.blogspot.com/2011/05/music-club-with-von-barlows-jazz.html


The long version;

 

I’m starting a library program in June simply called Music Club.  It will be held every other Tuesday at 4pm and geared towards children 8-12, although any child 6-14 may attend.  We’ll explore different types of music, and learn about particular artists / composers, instruments and theory.

I’m already getting some amazing musicians and performers for the classes. They’ll be talking about their personal history as a musician,  how the instument works, what sort of places they play and record, going into depth about the instrument they play, is it the main source of income for them.. etc. The class is an hour long, and while they certainly don’t have to take up that entire timeslot, they are being given free rein to do so. And if the musicians want - at the end of class we can break the kids up into groups and have them go to instrument stations – getting to hold and play some of the instruments. 

Attched is a flyer for our first program.  Our Music Club kicks off June 14th at 4pm with Von Barlow's Jazz Journey! He's played with Ray Charles, Etta James, Harry Connick Jr  and Bunky Green  (...just to name a few) and he'll be coming to play with his band and talk with kids at the Main Library . 

Thanks!

Josh Jubinsky 

 

PS. For our second installment (June 28th) we'll be having Tony Steve, a Jacksonville University professor of world and contemporary music, with a specialization in percussion. He'll be sharing with us how percussion instruments can be used for soundtracks for silent films.  We’re talking insane audio / visual presentation marimbas, all sorts of drums and maybe a gamelan.

GASLAND: Can you light your water on fire?

PRESS REVIEWS

"...one of the most effective and expressive environmental films of recent years." - Variety

"On the want-to-see- scale, GASLAND tops the list" - Washington Post

"Riveting" - LA Weekly

"GASLAND just might be the best film of the year." - The Huffington Post

"Over the past 8 days I was lucky enough to view 40 films...The most important film I saw was the documentary GASLAND...This examination of air quality and more specifically drinking water under attack from NYC to Ft. Worth was very eye opening." - USA TODAY

GASLAND is "well done. It holds people's attention. And it could block our industry." - Oil and Gas Journal President of the Natural Gas Supply Association

"VOLCANIC…With humor and inquisitiveness, Fox has delivered 2010's most alarming wake-up call." - Hammer To Nail

"When something emerges like Josh Fox's GASLAND, a work of art which also happens to educate quite effectively...this is why festivals, even the big ones, are capable of surprises, because wonderful things do seep through the cracks. Precisely because it was purely personal...and that it was as concerned with aesthetic matters as issues, GASLAND may also be some ideal of that cherished sub-genre in many festival circles, the environmental film, which tends to leave art behind for the topic it's addressing." - Cinemascope

 

DETAILS

 

GasLand, the 3rd film in the Green Carpet Series comes to the 5 Points Theater Monday, June 6th!

When: Doors open at 5:30, Film starts at 6:30

Cost: $10

Stick around following the film, there will be a short Q and A session about "fracking" with a local Hydro-Geologist.

 

About the Fracking Film:

"The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudia Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe?

 

When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown."

is proud to bring “GasLand” to 5 Points Theater
as the third film in its 2011 Green Carpet Film Series.
The goal of the film series is to foster dialogue, awareness,and action on sustainability issues facing North Florida.GasLand is a documentary movie about the effects of hydraulic fracturing or fracking, which is a means of naturalgas extraction employed in deep natural gas well drilling. Once a well is drilled, millions of gallons of water, sand andproprietary chemicals are injected, under high pressure, into a well. The pressure fractures the shale and props openfissures that enable natural gas to flow more freely out of the well. The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a “Saudia Arabia of natural gas” just beneath us. But is fracking safe?
When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND.
This film is part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, and part showdown.

EXCLUSIVELY IN 5 POINTS!

The year is 1845, the earliest days of the Oregon Trail, and a wagon team of three families has hired the mountain man Stephen Meek to guide them over the Cascade Mountains. Claiming to know a short cut, Meek leads the group on an unmarked path across the high plain desert, only to become lost in the dry rock and sage.
Over the coming days, the emigrants must face the scourges of hunger, thirst and their own lack of faith in each other’s instincts for survival. When a Native American wanderer crosses their path, the emigrants are torn between their trust in a guide who has proven himself unreliable and a man who has always been seen as the natural enemy.
