    Making Beautiful Music Together - "Pitch Perfect"

    in Movies

    It’s a rare day when a movie comes to F4F Radio’s attention.  Of course there was “The Devil Wears Prada”, which we discussed in 2009.  But generally speaking, a hit Hollywood movie – a couple hours and it’s done - can’t generate the same level of enthusiasm and the same number of devotees as a hit TV series – creating hours and hours of new material over a period of several years.  Tonight, however, we’ll be visiting the world of the movie “Pitch Perfect”, which has already generated hundreds of fanfics since its release in the fall of 2012.  Sort of a mix of “Glee” and “Bring It On”, PP tells the story of Beca (Anna Kendrick), a reluctant college freshman who is drafted by an all-female acapella group and becomes the unlikely key to their tournament success.  The person doing said drafting is senior Chloe (Brittany Snow) and, well, let’s just say it involved no clothing whatsoever.  The chemistry between Beca and Chloe is what caught the attention of fans all over the country, some of whom happened to be fanfic writers – and we’ll be interviewing two tonight.  Our guests will be first-timer Novel Concept, who wrote stories like “Storytellers and Legends” and “The Harmony That Kept Me Sound”, and the returning GilliganKane, author of “Your Body is a Wonderland” and “Song Beneath the Song”.  Joining me as cohost will be former guest Misty Flores, and together we’ll discuss Beca and Chloe, not to mention Aubrey (Anna Camp), Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) and the other ladies of the Barden Bellas who occasionally catch our fancies.

    Finding Joy in Every Situation: A Look at Gratitude ~ Cathy Towle

    in Spirituality

    A lot of people are looking for purpose, to find the right work and the right path. Something is calling you and you don’t quite yet know what it is. We search and wait for answers. We try out many things. What we often forget, is that this Right Path starts inside of us as gratitude. It’s not the finding of the perfect thing that makes us happy, it’s the act of being happy that brings the right things, people and opportunities right into our lives. In a state of appreciation, we are connected to joy and can view even the most challenging things as a blessing. Cathy will talk about how her connection to her guides helped her out of many difficult situations and how your own guidance can do the same.



    Cathy Towle is an Interfaith Minister and Spirit Medium providing Intuitive Guidance and healing messages from spirit. Cathy is one of the few mediums certified by Forever Family Foundation, was ordained by One Spirit Interfaith Seminary and is initiated into the shamanic path. Cathy has worked with leading spiritual teachers, including Andrew Harvey, with whom she founded the Institute for Sacred Activism. She is on the Executive Council of the Committee for Spirituality, Values and Global Concerns (CSVGCNY) at the UN, and writes for The Village Newspaper in New York. She speaks about Eco-Spirituality and heads the CSVGC-NY Eco-Spiritual Working Group.

    Hard Starboard Radio: Obama's Race To Chaos

    in Politics Conservative

    The anti-RFRA backlash is a perfect storm of hysteria and legal ignorance; Letting Iran get nuclear weapons is the most catastrophic decision in the history of humanity; "Under Obama, we have switched sides, an abomination that ensures a legacy of infamy"; The epitome of an Obama fiasco; and what Obama does because he doesn’t have to care what anybody says - and, you know, is a dictator who can make any opponent "disappear" at his whim.
