ART BELL

ART BELL - As the 90s drew to a close, late in the night, Art Bell excited radio listeners with stories of campfire ghosts and creatures hidden in shadows. The show Art started, Coast to Coast, brought in 10 million radio listeners at its height. I was listening and remember the night he made his announcement in 1998. Art said his safety was being threatened, he quit his radio job on air, and planned to go into hiding. He came back to the show but left again and the network attempted to replace Art with George Noory. But how can a visionary be replaced by a reporter? Art Bell transformed popular culture by suggesting psychic phenomena really existed, and discussed his favorite conspiracy theories. Aliens, time travel, ghosts, UFOs, science and ancient civilizations. Art had several more false starts and sudden retirements up to 2015 or so. Finally he died at his house in Pahrump AZ on April 13, 2018. If you haven’t discovered the classic Art Bell radio shows don’t shortchange yourself. Go uncover those hidden gems.

A QUIET PLACE

A QUIET PLACE - This 2018 post-apocalyptic horror film was directed by/ starring John Krasinski, along with his wife in real life Emily Blunt. With a screenplay developed by Krasinski, Bryan Woods and Scott Beck, the film opened last weekend in the top grossing spot, along with rave reviews. A family lives in silence afraid of predators that hunt by detecting the slightest sound. The search for a quiet place under the constant threat of attack builds suspense and tension. For me, originality comes first, and this is a film that delivers. You must go watch this movie and soon.
