FOOD FOR THOUGHT - STOPPING FOR DEATH
Thursday, Nov 21, 2013 - 7:00 pm, $8.00



Stopping For Death Website

Food For Thought is a monthly evening of food, film and discussion with a focus on films of social, political, environmental and community interest. Held on the third Thursday of each month, the night will feature food samples by Honest Weight Food Co-op, a feature film screening, and an open panel discussion.

This Months Film: Stopping For Death

Stopping For Death: The Nurses of Wells House Hospice follows four people working a job few Americans would want: tending to a house full of dying people. They are nurses, but they are also therapists, entertainers, disciplinarians, and, perhaps most importantly, family, to these patients. Filmed at one of the only full-time residential hospices in the country we see these nurses waver between fulfillment and despair, clashing with management and fighting budget cuts while trying to keep life as normal as possible for their dying patients.

JACK EMPIE

Jack Empie began playing guitar spontaneously on a Christmas Day when he discovered a guitar (intended for his younger brother) under the tree. Jack went on to study music at Berkley College and Towson University. His diverse range makes it difficult to place his music in a particular genre but his personal voice is discernible to even an unsophisticated listener. Jack has worked as a professional musician in bands and as a solo performer since he was a teenager. His passion for music is infectious because of his joy in sharing and relating it others. He is presently working to release a new CD and continues to perform at various local venues.

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 - LIVE: Guy Davis @ WAMC-FM’s The Linda, 1/17/14

Guy Davis prefaced his lightning-fast opening number at The Linda by saying, "I've stolen so much, this song doesn't even have a title!" And even if he hadn't name-checked Charlie Patton and Blind Willie McTell after it was all over, the SRO crowd could easily hear about 100 years of the blues coursing through Davis' acoustic 12-string guitar, right down to the off-time beat that recalled Robert Johnson's original version of "Crossroads." But as Davis says he tells his students, "It's okay to steal music - but once you steal it, you have to earn it!" Read More

Sun, Oct 6, 2013 - LIVE: Syd Straw at WAMC-FM’s Performing Arts Studio

ALBANY - It's been more than 20 years since singer-songwriter Syd Straw graced an Albany stage, but those shows at the now long-defunct QE2 still burn brightly in the memories of more than a few who were there back then. Read More
