A YANKEE PRIVATEER In Regency England anything is possible if one has the money and influence. The devious Marquess of Cargrave does, and he blackmails his American grandson into becoming his heir. Jason Beaumont , former Yankee privateer, finds himself the new Earl of Falconridge and on the verge of being leg shackled. He is not happy. AN ENGLISH HEIRESS The Honorable Rachael Fairchild , daughter to Cargrave's oldest friend, Viscount Harleigh, is threatened by her father with even more odious marriage choices if she does not wed the man the Ton has labeled "the Yankee earl." But Jason is a toad stool, nothing more than a jumped up pirate. She is not happy. A DEVIL'S BARGAIN The two first collide, quite literally, while somebody is shooting at Jason. In spite of the danger, he and Rachel strike sparks from each other in a battle of wits. Rachel devises a plan that will enable Jason is to escape England, thus freeing them both from a fate worse than death–marriage…to each other! If only the Yankee clodpole weren't so damnably witty and handsome. Jason quickly sees that his sharp-tongued "Countess" is right. They must work together to avoid leg-shackling…if only she weren't so damnably bright and beautiful. As the squabbling pair matches wits with the manipulative old marquess, mysterious assassins and kidnappers menace them. Rachel begins to wonder if marrying the wild Yankee would be so terrible after all. Jason slowly realizes that only a fool would not claim the willful "Countess" as his own, and the Yankee earl is nobody's fool . “The lively dialogue, biting repartee and sizzling sensuality crackle through the pages of this delicious and fast-paced read.”  Kathe Robin, Romantic Times “For readers with a taste for unconventional heroines, bold heroes, passion and danger, this is a lushly sensual Regency.” John Charles, Booklist “Sparkling dialogue and double entendres made this story speed along…hard to put down.”  Marilyn Rondeau, www.historicalromancewriters.com  “This battle of the sexes is fun to observe as this is one time when a tie is a win for both protagonists and the reader.”  Harriet Klausner, Amazon

Earl Sweatshirt Calls Odd Future A “Teenage Boys Club” He Doesn’t Want To Define Him

(AllHipHop News) Up to this point Odd Future affiliates Earl Sweatshirt, Matt Martians of The Internet, and Tyler, The Creator have made it clear the California collective is not what it once was. Tyler ignited the public discussion of the end of OF with one tweet in May, Earl backed up that sentiment, and Martians expounded on the situation in an interview with AllHipHop.com.

[ALSO READ: EXCLUSIVE: The Internet’s Matt Martians Explains Why Odd Future Needed To Come To A Close]

“It’s a badge. It’s a great thing. Everything has to move on. Everything has to have closure,” said Matt last month. “I think what rose from that is what really matters. A lot of great careers spawned from that, and a lot of great careers will continue to spawn from that.”

Earl has now further explained why he wants to shed the label of Odd Future. The creator of the critically acclaimed album I Don’t Like Sh*t, I Don’t Go Outside spoke with The Guardian.

“The OF thing follows you – it’s viral – even though not one thing I’ve done in the past couple years has been focused on OF,” stated Earl. When asked if Odd Future is a family he wants to escape, the Los Angeles native added, “It’s my teenage boy club that got famous that I’m trying to not be defined by.”

The Wolfpack and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Are Kind of the Same Movie

the wolfpack

For the vast majority of junior high, I spent all of the time I wasn’t studying or preparing for my dreaded bat mitzvah at the house of my close friend Jeremy. Jeremy had a cutting-edge home camcorder, an impressive array of props and costumes, working parents who allowed us the run of the place, and an unflagging patience for the art of stop-motion animation. (I brought to the table free time and a willingness to go with the flow.) We made a music video for “These Boots are Made For Walkin’,” in which I lay down in the middle of a winter Chicago sidewalk and Jeremy meticulously inched a pair of his father’s shoes over my prostrate body. We made a music video for “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” starring a Disney figurine with mobile arms. There were other, more ambitiously narrative projects, but they were either failures or I blocked out the details, because I can’t bring them into focus now.

Shortly thereafter, during our freshman year of high school, Dawson’s Creek premiered on the former WB network, and, though we were into it, suddenly being a young aspiring filmmaker with an unhealthy love of the work of Steven Spielberg (guilty as charged) became something of a cliché. I moved on to other pursuits, like writing and having unrequited crushes on boys. Jeremy kept making movies, and we began to drift apart. Filmmaking faded into the background for me, but I remember those years vividly, eating frozen Snickers, drinking Diet Cokes, and very slowly moving the arms of a rubber toy to express the emotion in Tina Turner’s voice. While other people were starting to have relationships, starting to smoke pot, even starting to have sex, I was running in the other direction, back, into a world of filmic make believe.

I’m reminded of this because tomorrow two excellent, Sundance Grand Jury Prize–winning movies will hit theaters, and they’re both about young filmmakers negotiating the world through the camera’s lens. As John Powers pointed out yesterday, Sundance, once a place for indie auteurs to tell boundary-pushing stories about grown-ups, is more and more a place for young directors to launch their careers with stories about even younger protagonists. What these two movies further show is that there’s actually nothing Sundance likes more than movies about very young protagonists who are themselves obsessed with making movies.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and based on the young adult novel by Jesse Andrews (he also wrote the script), tells the story of Greg (Thomas Mann), a socially maladapted teenager suffering through his senior year of high school in Pittsburgh. Greg’s mom (Connie Britton) is sweetly meddling, and his dad (Nick Offerman) is eccentrically nurturing (he seems to be based on Michael Douglas’s character from Wonder Boys mashed up with a kindly Dr. Evil), but they’ve given their son an appreciation for deep cuts from the Criterion Collection, and the long leash to pursue his singular love: filmmaking. Movies make up the whole of Greg’s existence: he wears Nosferatu and Film Forum T-shirts; his bedroom is covered in posters for Truffaut and Scorsese films; when he gets emotional, orchestral film scores swell up in the background of his voiceovers; and when the hot girl, Madison, touches his shoulder, he experiences it as an animated short in which a large quadruped pulverizes a small woodland creature with her hoof.

But most importantly, Greg devotes himself to producing elaborate spoof movies with his friend Earl (RJ Cyler), a process that involves “taking a film we like and making the title stupid.” These home productions, 42 in total, are actually sophisticated, Weird Al–style riffs on the classics: My Dinner with Andre the Giant; Pooping Tom, in which Greg wears a wig and is attacked with a plunger; A Sockwork Orange, featuring a sock puppet with a crazy resemblance to Malcolm McDowell; and, my personal favorite, A Box o’ Lips, Wow. (Say it fast.)

Though the concepts and the production values are high, and though each project even gets its own lovingly drawn cover worthy of an Olympia Le-Tan clutch, ultimately these films are sarcastically aloof, just one more of Greg’s extensive array of defense mechanisms, part of the same system that has him referring to Earl, clearly his best friend, as his “coworker,” or that sees him writing his college essay in the voice of Werner Herzog. The message is clear: I’ll reject you before you can reject me, and I’ll be really clever about it too.

All this of course changes when Greg meets the titular “dying girl,” Rachel (Olivia Cooke), his classmate who has just been diagnosed with leukemia, and whom Greg’s mom makes him befriend. Though they’re forced together by circumstance and parental decree, over the course of many afternoons hanging out and talking in Rachel’s decorative pillow-festooned bedroom, as Rachel loses her hair and grows more and more frail, they begin to genuinely care for each other.

But this is a movie that rejects formula on every level. So though Rachel is beautiful and smart and weird and likes Greg’s jokes and thinks his movies are cool, Greg’s voiceovers remind us again and again that this is not a typical Hollywood romance in which the doomed friendship turns into an uplifting love story. (I’m looking at you, The Fault in Our Stars.) Though there’s a prom plotline, and many meaningful snugglefests, and though Greg turns out to be a highly unreliable narrator, he is, at least on the surface, correct about this. We’ve got all the makings of a John Hughes movie: spunky, disadvantaged wise girl helps disaffected boy get all vulnerable. But then there’s the riff: Rachel is dying, and Greg, above all, probably really does just need a friend. (For the record: under the surface I’m still clinging to the idea that they’re in love!)

Seeing himself through Rachel’s eyes, Greg is able to overcome the boundaries of the formula he believes defines him: pasty, hedgehog-faced underdog doomed to live on the margins of society, producing snark and avoiding human connection. Rachel shows him, as cheesy as it sounds, how to become the director of his own life, the leading man rather than the sad clown, and, as a filmmaker, how to look past the surface to find stories that are more interesting, more complicated, more rewarding. In the meta narrative, that means that Greg makes a film that’s not at all pat or glib, something abstract and emotional and powerful enough to actually mean something (I’m being deliberately vague to avoid spoilers). In the master narrative, that means that Gomez-Rejon makes a movie that transcends its initial Wes Andersonian deadpan charms in favor of one that’s deeply emotional and gratifying.



the wolfpack

While you may be thinking that Greg must be the biggest cinephile to hit big screens this summer, that’s only because you haven’t yet met The Wolfpack’s Mukunda. The story behind this film is almost too amazing to be true: in 2010 the documentarian Crystal Moselle was walking the streets of the East Village when she spotted a pack of six long-haired, black-suited, near-identical young men. She chatted them up and uncovered their crazy history: the six Angulo brothers, along with their sister, had grown up nearly completely cloistered in an apartment on the Lower East Side. Their father, Oscar, a Peruvian Hare Krishna afraid of the negative influence growing up in the big city might have on his kids, was effectively their jailor; their mother, Susanne, appears to have been subject to many of the same restrictions as her children.

In the near complete absence of contact with the outside world, the brothers watched hundreds of movies. Eventually, Mukunda, somewhere in the middle in birth order, began transcribing his favorites into scripts for them to act out and film. When we meet the boys the process has become very elaborate. Not only are many of them pretty good at acting—they do an uncanny imitation of John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson cleaning up brains in Pulp Fiction—but they create incredibly realistic props: cardboard guns with removable cartridges, a Batsuit that might actually fool you from a distance, a Freddy Krueger get-up.

While all of the Angulo brothers are passionate about film, it’s Mukunda who seems to be a driving force behind their production efforts, and also behind much of the action of the documentary. Quiet, prone to speaking as though he’s reading from a pulpy film script, Mukunda internalizes the characters he transcribes from the screen, and frames his family conflict in cinematic terms. “After I saw The Dark Knight, that made me believe that something was possible to happen,” he tells the camera. “Not because it was Batman. It’s because it felt like another world. I did everything I could to make that world come true.” Playing these characters opens doors figuratively and literally. “I have to be as strong as I can be to play Batman,” he says, “because it’s a responsibility.” Eventually, that strength helps him to seize some agency in his own life, one day slipping out of the apartment in the first open act of defiance of his father’s rules. It opens the floodgates for the family, and most of Moselle’s movie is about their journey of discovering the outside world.

But it’s also about Mukunda’s journey as a filmmaker. The homages the boys create throughout the movie feel like film versions of folk art, transcriptions that are just as interesting and original as the originals themselves. Raised in isolation, the brothers have grown up into a rare breed: teenagers without edge. They may swear profusely, they may act out scenes from incredibly violent movies, but they are never mean. Protected from the world, they have not yet learned to take a defensive posture against it. There’s none of Greg’s world-weariness; the Wolfpack’s productions are utterly earnest.

By the end of the film, as Mukunda’s contact with the outside world increases—I’m guessing that observing Moselle, a working filmmaker, didn’t hurt—he moves beyond rehashing existing scripts to creating something truly original. The film we eventually see him working on is a literal evocation of the very personal experience of looking out a window and watching his emotions, personified by members of his family, from a distance. It’s an achingly moving image for what his childhood must have felt like, and the perfect real-life corollary to the project that the fictional Greg creates, also an attempt to capture on film emotions he finds difficult to express in person.

As both of these movies seem to say, hanging out behind a camera can be a way of shutting the world out, but it can also be a way of inviting it in.

British Rapper Skepta Talks Working With Drake & Earl Sweatshirt For His “Konnichiwa” Album

(AllHipHop News) American audiences may not be as familiar with English grime artist Joseph “Skepta” Adenuga as music fans from across the pond, but Hip Hop stars from the States are well aware of the 32-year-old North London native.

[ALSO READ: Kanye West Releases “First Official” Video For “All Day”]

Skepta a got a huge shout-out from Kanye West at the BRIT Awards in February. The GOOD Music boss debuted his single “All Day” at the ceremony, and Ye hand-picked Skepta to gather 30 people to join him during the fire cannon filled televised performance.

Besides Mr. West, Skepta has also made fans out of OVO leader Drake and Odd Future affiliate Earl Sweatshirt. A new cover story with Fader reveals Skepta set up studio time with both North American rappers.

But the question was asked if Skepta’s collaborations with Drizzy and Earl will cause him to bend to their respective musical styles. Or does the emcee/producer expect for the two performers to fall into the sound being established for his upcoming Konnichiwa album?

“I put P Diddy on a f*cking grime tune. I don’t care what they feel about it. They have to come on my wave – that’s the only thing that’s going to give my album what it needs,” said Skepta. “I understand the objective now, and I ain’t going to f*cking America to shoot a video. They need to come to the roads with me.”

Skepta is serious about creating a project that reflects his experiences, his lifestyle, and his city. The Nigerian descendant recognized the contrasts between the atmosphere of London versus the glamorous vibe of Hollywood.

“England is so black and white, so plain, like a burger with nothing on it. No salad, nothing. That’s why it’s so real,” Skepta added.

He continued, “I want anybody from around the world to be able to listen to the album and know it comes from London – from the beats, not just the vocals.”

James Earl Jones Having ‘Fascinating’ Time in Return to Broadway

Award-winning actor James Earl Jones, 83, who takes the stage in the play “You Can’t Take it With You” as Grandpa Vanderhof, said it’s “wonderful” to be back on Broadway.

The comedic play, whose cast includes Rose Byrne, Kristine Nielsen, Annaleigh Ashford and Elizabeth Ashley, is about an engaged couple introducing their very different families to each other.

“It is ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ … These families are equal in dignity but not in wealth,” Jones said. “The wealth has set the other family, the boy’s family, apart in a way that’s not all that healthy and Grandpa knows that because he came from that world. … He was very aggressive, making an attempt at Wall St. Here’s a guy who I’ll say … tried then gave it up. But the other family has thrived and … the father of the groom is the epitome of the dignified American. … And he’s got this son. … And my granddaughter’s in love with him.”

A Lifetime of Achievement – but James Earl Jones Isn’t Done Yet

He called the experience “fascinating.”

“Every member of the cast carries the play. There’s no star. It’s not on my shoulders,” Jones said. “It’s on every one of our shoulders, and they do it beautifully. They’re really some sharpshooters.”

Jones, who provided the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies, won the Voice Icon Award from the first-ever Voice Arts Awards in November.

He said Star Wars fans still come by the theater to get autographs.

“I love that they think well of it,” he said. “I’m very proud to have been a part of that. It’s a great cult growing up around the whole — good for George [Lucas] and good for everybody, including the mythologists that inspired George.”

A new Star Wars film is expected out in 2015.

As for Jones, despite all the accolades and achievements, he said he was still the same person who was born in Mississippi and raised on a Michigan farm.

He remembers his grandfather’s advice to take things one step at a time.

“Every production I do is another step. Destiny — I don’t know what that is. … Just the step is what’s important,” he said.  “The journey is what’s important. I consider myself a journeyman actor. I love the phrase.”
