Come with Travel Brigade to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the movie Sideways, by taking your own wine-tasting trip near California’s Central Coast. In the movie, Miles (Paul Giamatti) and Jack (Thomas Haden Church) go on a trip to the Santa Ynez Valley for wine-tasting and relaxation, but romance and hilarity ensue. Ten years later, you can go “Sideways” yourself when you get a map that matches up scenes from the movie with the spots where they took place. You can dine at the place where Miles made his famous anti-merlot rant or the winery where he drank from the spit bucket. More importantly, you can taste some great wines, eat some delicious food and enjoy some beautiful scenery. Enjoy the trip! Follow us on Twitter @TravelBrigade.
Wine Muse hosts Linda Rez and William Pollard welcome Rex Pickett--author of what may be the all-time most dramatically influential book about wine: Sideways.
The movie, which was based on that book, was nominated for 5 Academy Awards and won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay; it also won over 350 awards from critics. In 2011 Mr. Pickett published Vertical which continues the story of Miles and Jack as they embark on a roadtrip with Miles' mom, her nurse, and her dog through wine country and middle America. Vertical explores Miles' relationship with his mother and his coming to grips with her impending death.
Mr. Pickett recently adapted his novel Sideways for the stage. It sold out to audiences for six months when it was performed at the Ruskin Group Theater, and it then went on to break all attendance records at the La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego, where it was directed by Des McAnuff. The play is now heading to London's West End.
He has a new book in the trilogy coming this fall, Sideways 3 Chile, you won't want to miss, which follows Miles' life and wine adventures in Chile.
Join us for an in-depth and honest conversation with a great writer.

Joe Goldberg is a former CIA officer who worked for eight years in covert action, information collection, and analysis. During those years, he earned a Meritorious Unit Citation and three Performance Awards.
His debut novel, Secret Wars: An Espionage Story is a suspenseful glimpse into the shadowy world of the CIA, where deceivers become the deceived and the consequences are life or death. It's a clandestine world where intricate networks of people fight a complex battle to keep the world safe from terrorism.
When terrorists funded by the Libyan government strike airports in Rome and Vienna in 1985, the CIA enlists top propaganda expert Mike Garnett to help recruit a high-ranking Libyan official, Foreign Minister Abdallah Mukhtar, to work for the CIA. As violence escalates between the US military and terrorists based in Libya, Garnett utilizes CIA assets in Hollywood to produce a propaganda video designed to convince Mukhtar he was betrayed by his own regime. Garnett's plan works--but goes sideways when it motivates the Libyan official to do something Garnett didn't even consider.
Sharp and insightful, Secret Wars: An Espionage Story is a thrilling tale of deception, betrayal, and patriotism--and Garnett soon learns they're not as black and white as they seem when he's forced to reevaluate the true nature of the business of deception.
For fans of Tom Clancy, David Ignatius, and Frederick Forsyth, Secret Wars is a fictional thriller set against the backdrop of historical events. Meticulously researched, it pulls from the author's personal experiences as a member of the CIA.

Isolation is not a thing as much as it is an all encompassing feeling. When you try to apply what you believe, to the situation you are facing, nothing makes sense. Everyone around you hasn't a clue about what you truely feel but have a theory for you, although, it only makes them feel better because they can't wrap their heads around the possibilities that are your everyday life.
When this has happened enough times, you go inside yourself in search of answers to help you survive in their world where you need to live. Doing this over time isolates you from those outsiders, be it family, friends, co workers and you are forced to carry this load alone, adding to the feeling that no one knowes the pain i'm feeling and forces you to go deeper inside yourself where it festers and eventually comes out sideways at the most inopportune time.

The densely populated megalopolis of South Florida is losing it's water wells as sea water intrudes into the Biscayne Aquifer. Salt water has already moved 6 miles inland in Broward County and is likely to continue to creep westward. Ninety percent of South Florida gets its drinking water from underground supplies, most from the Biscayne aquifer. This inland movement observed in Broward County is due to urban withdrawals from the Biscayne Aquifer, ocean water moving sideways into the aquifer and seepage of saltwater from surface sources.

Host Declan Finn (The Pius Trilogy) is happy to announce that author Karina Fabian returns to TCG on August 9th to talk about Mind Over All, the grand finale to her fantasy, Mind Over Trilogy. There will be aliens, psychics, a wedding that goes sideways, planets crashing into each other, a discussion of Catholic writers, and cows with laser beams on their heads -- yes, really, laser cows.
By day, Karina is a mild-mannered reviewer of business software and services for TopTenReviews.com. After hours, she’s a psychic intent on saving the world; a snarky dragon who thinks he saves the world all-too regularly, a zombie exterminator who just wants her world clear of undead vermin, and nuns whose callings have taken them off our world. Needless to say, her imagination is vast, her stories legion, and her brain crowded. When she’s not converting her wild tales to stories, she’s enjoying time with her husband, Rob, their four kids, and their two dogs.
Rex Pickett has written numerous screenplays, books, scripts and movies, and his greatest success came with his novel Sideways, now adapted as a successful & sold out stage play.
He shares with us how he found & followed his passion, how the Sideways play came about, why he decided to name it "Sideways", what he thinks of social media. He also tells us some insight into the Hollywood world, and about his recent trip to Chile, and what is next for him!
Enjoy the show as we *CLINK!* & CHAT!* with Rex!
Much to my surprised, I discovered, when I arise, the goodness and the greatness of stimulating conversation. Words spoken to make you think, thoughts that make you reason, conclustions that bring you to action, either by spreading the word, opening up the discussion for more provocative or getting a resolution - in other words - Eric & Mark Harris - front & center, and sideways too, if you have a mind 2 - 347-205-9366.
THEN - blasts those thermos containers with soup or coffee. Did you ever have a thermos, (the old kind) break on you, and ruin your lunch, or whatever meal you had inside? And what does that have, if anything to do with KINGS IN THE MORNING. It's a new day with show shocking shtuff. - And yes I said it - S H T U F F - pronounced SHHHHH STUFF. "Well why didn't you just say that????" Uh - duh! KINGS IN THE MORNING 347-205-9366.
On tonight's episode of Talking in Circles; we discuss this weekend's events at Talladega Superspeedway. The NASCAR Xfinity Series race was clouded with controversy as Joey Logano won the Winn-Dixie 300, but the rules in the NASCAR Xfinity Series prohibit drivers from "push drafting." It was evident that no matter how big or how small, there was push drafting during that race, and some think that there should have been a different winner.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the Geico 500 was the exact opposite today. There was an early "big one" that was caused when Trevor Bayne got sideways in front of the field. This took out some early contenders in the race.
Other than that, there wasn't much action. Everyone was anticipating the others making their move with around 20 laps to go. No one did. No moves were made. A couple of drivers tried to get out of line, but no one gave them any help and Dale Earnhardt, Jr went on to the victory.
We'll discuss the strategy of the end of the race, and what just may be going through people's head at the end of the race.
Marc Normandin and Matt Kory are here and HOPEFULLY YOU CAN HEAR US, BLOGTALKRADIO SHEESH, to discuss the Red Sox start to the season, the starting pitching and whether or not it's too early to freak the heck out about the starting pitching. They/we also talk about the Sox options on the pitching side if things continue to go sideways, and they might talk about some prospects though they might not. Tune in to see! It's always enlightening, it's always fun, and maybe you'll even be able to hear it, it's the OTM Podcast!
Maria Howell stops by Speak Live Nation with Cedric Nettles and shares her start as an actress as she will be forever rememebered in a certain magical scene in The Color Purple. She is a very talented actress, voice over artist, and singer.
Some may be inspired to call her best kept secret, but anyone who leaves an imprint on every medium from radio, stage and television to the Hollywood screen is hardly incognito. Howell's talent has been featured as a nightclub singer "Goldie", in "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles", produced by George Lucas (Chicago and NY episodes, which also features veteran actor Keith David). Other roles on the small screen include "Linda", where she plays alongside master performers Richard Thomas (The Waltons) and Virginia Madsen (Sideways) and in "Scattered Dreams" with Tyne Daly (Judging Amy) and Alicia Silverstone (Clueless and Beauty Shop).
Her credibility as a true thespian flourished when she nailed a coveted role as the daughter of Maya Angelou's character in Langston Hughes' "Tambourines to Glory" stage play. She has worked with famed actor, director and producer, Tyler Perry in film, "Daddy's Little Girls" and in his TV sitcoms "Meet the Browns"and "House of Payne" (TBS).
