Reviewer: Bee Zeeb "Ministry of Mutation" (Mauna Kea, HAWAI’I) - See all my reviews
Want to shine a few stars brighter in your kid’s eyes? This is one of the most profound gifts which every child in the world deserves to own!

Invaluable remebrance of the Steve Irwin legacy, complete with outtakes, boundless passion for wild animals, and the tear-swelling LOVE of Australia for the animals’ "best mate."

Also, the special feature exclusive gives an unprecedented and treasured glimpse into the Irwins’ truth and genuine humanity, with the ordeal of Steve’s beloved Sui dog passing.

All proceeds go to further the work of the Irwin’s Australia Zoo through the Wildlife Warriors foundation. Help your kids keep in touch with Bindi & Terri, who are surely going to be Animal Channel celebs for a long time to come, crocodiles baring teeth & all...

Get a copy for every child on your list! It will be treasured, and shared with laughs and tears. Aloha from Mauna Kea Mothership!

The Beatles (Artist)

From Amazon.co.uk
It begins with a twittering of birdsong lifted from "Across the Universe." And once the triple-tracked a capella harmonies of "Because" enter, followed by snatches from "A Hard Day’s Night" and "The End," leading into a fired-up "Get Back," it becomes obvious that this is far more than just another Beatles compilation. This is Love, conceived by the Fabs’ former producer George Martin and son Giles as a stageshow soundtrack to Cirque de Soleil’s Las Vegas spectacular of the same name, but appears to have taken on a life of its own. Whereas the Beatles’ last release, 1, delivered the (over?) familiar hits in a nice, simple package, Love is a mélange of the familiar and obscure, all literally mixed together in one 78-minute audio collage which succeeds in reminding the listener just why the Beatles truly are, as Lennon put it, "toppermost of the poppermost." There’s no new Beatles material per se, but the songs are all approached differently—some are cut together in a flawlessly mixed medley (check out "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!/I Want You/Helter Skelter"), some reassemble different backing tracks and vocal performances to create new spins on old classics; but all the songs are revitalized considerably. Even in its weakest moments (which probably work better in the context of the show itself), Love is still a formidable prospect, and one has to admire Martin’s willingness to go out on a limb with such a project. While purists may complain that the cut ’n’ paste nature of the project is simply tampering with perfection, at the very least it’ll make them reach for the originals and enjoy them all over again. For newcomers and everyone else, it makes a fine listen, both in its sonic clarity (the actual tracks are the best they’ve sounded on CD) and audacious nature. —Thom Allott

Cirque d’amour, November 21, 2006
Reviewer: Amanda Richards "Modest to the extreme" (Georgetown, Guyana) - See all my reviews
This album is actually the soundtrack for a Las Vegas production by the Quebecois entertainment group Cirque du Soleil, each track having been carefully excavated and lovingly remixed by longtime Beatles collaborator Sir George Martin and his son Giles from the archives of original recordings.

With the blessing of the surviving Beatles, as well as Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, some 130 Beatles songs were mixed into this track list, with a lot of blending, combining, and in one case a new musical arrangement by George Martin. The result is a wonderful piece of history brought to life for listeners who may have been too young to experience it first hand, or those who wish those days could come again.

My favorite tracks on the album are listed below, and I’m really pleased for this opportunity to hear them again with their new arrangements as if for the very first time.

Eleanor Rigby
I Am the Walrus
I Want to Hold Your Hand
Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite (mixed with 2 other songs)
Strawberry Fields Forever (with parts of 4 other songs)
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
Octopus’s Garden
Here Comes the Sun
While My Guitar Gently Weeps (new string arrangement)
A Day in the Life
Hey Jude
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Far from being a mere compilation of Beatles songs, this album breathes new life into the Fab Four, and proves that Beatlemania Lives!!!

  • Synopsis All over the planet, unusual children are born with an added twist to their genetic code. This "X-factor" allows the children to perform extraordinary feats - flight, telekinetics, laser beams from the eyes and more. One Dr. Charles Xavier gathers the children to a place where he can train them to use their powers for themselves and the forces of good he dubs these children his X-men and hijinks ensue.
    Note from BzB to Santa 23:
    If all the kids you know are spoiled (sorry—"overly privileged") and most likely won’t even remember the gift you will buy them amongst their huge stack of presents, consider commiting a soulful random act of generosity this year instead:
    The Lakota People have four values to live by: bravery, wisdom, generosity,
    and fortitude. Generosity (Wacantognaka) is essential to a Lakota. It is
    better to give a lot than to have a lot. The best way to honor people is
    through giveaways (otuhan) where the givers share much of what they have
    with others, sometimes giving away everything in their possession.

    Leonard Peltier’s supporters offer an opportunity to give something
    back and honor the Lakota people. He respectfully requests your help making
    these holidays a little brighter and this winter a little warmer for the
    children at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

    Please send toys, coats, socks, shoes, clothing, and "very good things" to:

    "Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. . . Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem."
