In an effort to keep the residents of Marana informed, the town has started a podcast. The podcast, started earlier this month, has already found an audience.
It’s been quite a few years since I’ve seen a movie without laughter of any sort--not a single one-liner, or even the slightest attempt towards invoking a harmless giggle. “Halloween” and the other horror films pride themselves on the fine art of laughter to relax unsuspecting viewers--all before an axe, knife or chainsaw cut to the morbid plot. Even 1972’s epic backwoods suspense thriller “Deliverance” tossed out some jokes between arrow shots from Burt Reynolds’ recurve bow. I’d probably have to go back to Steven Spielberg’s 1971 road rage, made-for-TV movie titled “Duel” to discover such a humorless film production as “Foxcatcher”.
In the midst of the aftermath of a massive data breach, at least one thing is going well for Sony Pictures. In only five days after its release through video-on-demand sources, Seth Rogan and James Franco’s movie “The Interview” has made over $15 million in online sales and nearly $3 million in sales through the small collection of theaters that showed the film.

With so many stores opening with specials on Thanksgiving night, much of the luster and craziness has been taken away from “Black Friday.” Big-ticket electronic items had people waiting in line all across Tucson on Thursday night, which made things far less busy on Friday.
It was a busier than normal night at the Marana Town Council last Wednesday, and it could have been an even busier session had a council action agenda item not been taken off the board. As it was, the council held the first of two public hearings over the possibility of building a new police station.

The one point that director Dan Gilroy’s latest film hammers home to moviegoers is that we’ve emerged as a society with an inherent morbid curiosity. We seek out and are drawn to this fascination with other’s death or unpleasant circumstances. Feeding this obsession with over-the-top gruesomeness is a news media hell-bent on higher ratings at any cost. “Nightcrawler” unapologetically illustrates the high price television stations are willing to pay to get that grisly, leading story even if truth and fairness must be discarded to the side as collateral damage. Gilroy’s vision for the movie is either a tongue-and-cheek play upon our grim desires as consumers of news or a gallant effort on his part to bring awareness to society’s lack of respect and dignity for one another. Regardless, “Nightcrawler” is a dark and disturbing thriller about the sick, reciprocal relationship between television viewers and the media.

It took me awhile, rummaging through the photo files on my computer, to locate the pictures I took during an anti-Iraq War march in Portland, Oregon. How long ago was it? I eventually found them in a 2003 folder. It was over a decade ago.
If I’d known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself. I think Eubie Blake gets credit for that familiar line. The truth is we are living longer, but maybe not in the best of shape. The average lifespan for men is around 75. For women it’s 80 - still longer than men but the gap is narrowing. And here’s the good news: Seniors are healthier, more active and economically better off than they ever have been.
