Movie Review: ‘Waking Sleeping Beauty’

‘Waking Sleeping Beauty’ opens door on Disney & animation’s big leap forward
By Gary Thompson
Philadelphia Daily News
Daily News Film Critic

Feature animation had an explosively great year in 2009, so it’s startling to be reminded in “Waking Sleeping Beauty” that it was all but dead 20 years ago.

This inside documentary (made by animators) about the fall and the rise of the House of Disney starts in the early 1980s, when once-mighty Disney bombed with “The Black Cauldron” and corporate bean counters talked about junking the white-elephant animation division to free up money for Bette Midler movies.

New Mister D’s Playlist

There’s new music uploaded in Mister D’s playlist featuring new music by Hole, Melissa Etheridge, Joan Armatrading, Levi Kreis, Jason Castro, and more. Hope you enjoy.

This month I will be bypassing Same Songs, Other Voices due to losing all my source material through hackers. I need time to rebuild my library. However I will be up and running again by next week.

Love, Mister D

BetteBack: Taking A Chance On Caan

The New York Times
James Caan Rises From the Ashes of His Career

LOS ANGELES— James Caan glances around the dimly lit living room of the big rustic home in Bel Air that he has just sold. The actor built the house years ago at the peak of his career; it is a movie star’s home, richly paneled and filled with leather furniture and cluttered with Western-style paintings and reproductions of Remington statues. One of the actor’s former wives said something unprintable about the masculine nature of this place. “It’s the one funny thing she ever said,” Mr. Caan remarks with a laugh. Read More

Do I Hear ‘Letter Writing Campaign?’
Waiting to be noticed
Commander Coconut
2:42 PM EDT, April 29, 2010

Here’s the address if you want to nominate an artist or an artiste for the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors: Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts; Kennedy Center Honors; 2700 F St. N.W.; Washington, D.C. 20566.

This address bidness is yet another offshoot of the Florida Film Festival. Standing in line to see Solitary Man, I ran into Barry Sandler, a professor at the University of Central Florida’s film school and also the writer of such movies as Making Love and All-American Murder. Read More

Bette Strips Again!

Bette Midler takes it off
Liz Smith
April 29th, 2010

OK! Back to the St. Regis night. It’s important for me to salute Lily Tomlin who turns out to be not just adorable, as when she performs her famous characters, but equally fabulous as herself. She pretends she doesn’t quite know what she is doing up there onstage, or at the mike, where she is actually running everything. I have seldom seen her comic equal as an emcee. And she performs in such a throwaway manner, as if everything is happening on the spur of the moment. Just a great talent! Read More

It’s Elton John Day!

New York Daily News
Bette Midler announces Elton John Day at Breast Cancer Research Foundation‘s “Hot Pink” benefit
Thursday, April 29th 2010, 4:00 AM
April 27 is officially “Elton John Day.” Says who? Bette Midler!

The Divine Miss M made the announcement, on behalf of Mayor Bloomberg, at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s “Hot Pink” benefit Tuesday night.

“Elton has sold out Madison Square Garden more than anyone ever has, more than the Knicks and the Rangers,” Midler exaggerated at the Crumbs bash. “Even though he doesn’t know what either of those things are.” Read More
