10E2671: 1977 Spielberg CEOT3K Interview

Neat interview with Steven Spielberg during filming on Close Encounters of the Third Kind about why gu'b'ment didn't care to discuss them (fear of confusion over ICBM being one aspect).  Close Encounters filmed quickly after Jaws - Spielberg STILL wearing his rope bracelet from JAWS location filming on Martha's Vineyard.  Good look.   WATCH
As alluded to in the video, the "third kind" terminology comes from a system of classification codified by astronomer and UFO researcher J. Allen Hynek.  The early CEOT3K posters listed the encounter 'kinds".

10E2670: Roardrunner | Bourdain


"Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain is an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at how an anonymous chef became a world-renowned cultural icon. From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?), this unflinching look at Bourdain reverberates with his presence, in his own voice and in the way he indelibly impacted the world around him."   Trailer here.   To be released in US cinemas on July 16th.

This doc has an almost impossibly high bar to clear but I cant wait...

The food may have just been an excuse to meet the people in the travel shows - but a fantastic one.  If you worked any food service certainly on the East Coast in the 80s/90s his first book Kitchen Confidential should be essential reading.  Highly recommended for everyone else too...
