"On the Milk Round ...You, Dad, and Me" Video
It may be hip-hop, C-Mon & Kypski are, more than anything, all about adventure, freedom and fantasy. A recent journey to Morocco is a good example. After two years of intensive touring (from Amsterdam to Istanbul, South by Southwest to Eurosonic), the guys of C-Mon & Kypski (Simon Akkermans, Thomas Elbers, Daniel Rose en Jori Collignon) decided to give their fantasy a helping hand. With unshaven beards they left with a camper van full of ideas and recording equipment to Morocco. Over a period of four weeks they created what is now their third and latest album 'Where the wild things are'. The album title, 'Where the wild things are', which is refers to the famous children book from 1963, written by Maurice Sendak. The most concrete product of their journey is the new single' Bumpy Road', which recieved it's name from the circumstances of the recordings. It is by far the happiest C-Mon & Kypski song till now, and irresistibly invites it's listener to explore the wide world yourself. No wonder the music of C&K does not have any musical borders. At first the group made it easy for themselves to be put under the genre of hiphop/turntablism, but not any more. C-Mon: "it really is a C-Mon & Kypski album, but some influences have decreased, some added. Especially rock plays a big part whereas we didn't use guitars before. Most important, we don't cut and paste anymore, we used less samples for this album and played a lot more instruments ourselves. We've grown in creating a sound." And so C-Mon & Kypski unite a whole lot of genres into their own sound, from afrobeat to electro, a psychedelic dreamtrack that is coverted to a pumping rocksong. Where do you find klezmer and tango seamless united into one song? Of course, C-Mon & Kypski.Until now C-Mon & Kypski did every dirty job on the album themselves, but on their new album they thankfully make use of the services of rappers Sadat X (Brand Nubian, USA) Pete Philly and Kain (The Last Poets, USA) saxophone player Benjamin Herman (New Cool Collective) The Amsterdam Klezmer Band and the rockers of Voicst also collaborated on the album.

About me: I am a natural born psychic with thirty years of experience in this giving field. Between the age?s of seven and eight I started to experience dreams that would later come to pass and by the time I was ten years old I was having visions in a waking state...that would also come to pass. By the time I was thirteen years of age I could see the energy of those who have already crossed over, and in the following year I could hear their voices and communicate with them. In 1986 I started Darrah?s Magic Productions, providing magic shows for parties and special events. Over the years I have traveled the United States. In 2004 I decided to go back to doing what I knew best and love...I have spent a lifetime helping and guiding people along their journey.

"Me and You and Everyone We Know" is a poetic and penetrating observation of how people struggle to connect with one another in an isolating and contemporary world. Christine Jesperson is a lonely artist and "Eldercab" driver who uses her fantastical artistic visions to draw her aspirations and objects of desire closer to her. Richard Swersey (John Hawkes), a newly single shoe salesman and father of two boys, is prepared for amazing things to happen. But when he meets the captivating Christine, he panics. Life is not so oblique for Richard's seven-year-old Robby, who is having a risque internet romance with a stranger, and his fourteen-year-old brother Peter who becomes the guinea pig for neighborhood girls - practicing for their future of romance and marriage. In July's modern world, the mundane is transcendent and everyday people become radiant characters who speak their innermost thoughts, act on secret impulses, and experience truthful human moments that at times approach the surreal. They seek together-ness through tortured routes and find redemption in small moments that connect them to someone else on earth. Performance artist, Miranda July, wrote, directed and stars in this remarkably original and poignant film.
As a New York playwright, Nicky Rogan made his name in boulevard comedy, and now has ventured closer to home and written something he really cares about. Though he won?t admit it, he is desperate for another success. From the outset, things begin to go wrong. His daughter informs him that his wife wants a divorce. His mistress notifies him that his lead actor has a parasite in his brain and can?t remember his lines, and an old acquaintance regales him with tales of Steven Schwimmer, a new and powerful critic who is so poisonous, so destructive, that the New York theater community lives in terror. Although Nicky has grown up and lived his entire life in New York, he is a die-hard Red Sox fan and the film is set on October 25, 1986, the day of the most Shakespearian of sporting events, "Game 6" of the 1986 World Series. The Red Sox are poised to win. At the last minute, Nicky decides to skip his opening night in order to watch his beloved team. This could be it. If his "cursed" Red Sox can finally win the World Series, maybe Nicky can break his own downward spiral. Scripted by acclaimed writer Don DeLillo, "Game 6" is an intelligent, witty, unsettling tale of one man's encounter with his demons, his passions and his infatuation with failure. Michael Keaton stars, along with Robert Downey Jr., Griffin Dunne, Bebe Neuwirth, and Catherine O'Hara.
