Today's guest post is from Chris Klondike Masuak Canadian-born Australian rock musician, guitarist, songwriter and record producer.

I pick Pony Boy up from the bus stop after school most days.

If it’s sunny I wait sitting on a brick wall swinging my legs and looking out over a 12th-century convent to the low green coastal mountains, disappearing into soft haze.

The bus swings around the corner pretty much right on the button and Pony Boy bursts out, talking a mile a minute about how he didn’t do anything at school.

We’ll stop at a bar on the way home. Spanish bars aren’t the frosted glassed sleazy dives we used to stand in fear and wonder outside of as kids in northern Canada. He’ll continue his monologue over hot chocolate and churros, stopping occasionally to talk to one of the patrons in whatever language suits them, which in this joint usually means “Deep Galego”.

Most of the old folks in town know Pony Boy. On those sunny days they’ll all be out sitting along the walkway beside the bay in the precious sunshine. He’ll stop and say hello to them, making sure that the ones who don’t see so well know it’s him. He shakes their hands or gives high fives. They’ll talk for a while about this and that while I stand back and watch.

If we don’t notice them when we walk past, they’ll wave and yell “Hola!”. He waves back and yells, telling them where we’re going.

We seem to have become a fixture. If I’m out on the street by myself, people I don’t even know will ask “You’re by yourself today? Where’s your boy?”

As we walk along he keeps up a running monologue, mostly about the various ways you can defeat zombies or the mechanical attributes of the robots he likes to build.

We’ll usually end up walking along beside the water to the music school and we’ll stand outside for a while, playing by the antique cannons and listening to the students clamouring away.

Violin concertos, bagpipes, rock bands...it’s the luck of the draw on any given day.

Some days we’ll walk further along the waterfront to the sports centre.

In July you can forget about swimming for a few weeks. Viveiro is home to Resurrection Fest, one of Europe’s biggest metal/thrash festivals. When that’s on, it’s impossible to get to the pool. It’s annoying.

A couple of years ago Motorhead did their final concert there. Last year Iron Maiden played. This year it was KISS and Scorpion.

We can hear it all from my place at the far end of the bay..

During the festival our medieval fishing village is choked with people. At first the locals were worried about all those strange kids with tattoos, piercings, dressed in black.

These days, they don’t even bother calling in any extra police. The 60,000 concert goers cause less trouble and are infinitely more polite than any couple of drunken Brits!

In August there’s a giant festival stage set up in the town plaza. Every night music drifts out across the water and echoes against the hills.

The bars are overflowing and while you listen to the concerts you can fill up on the free tapas!

The other night I was making my way back home after playing a Rock 4 West Papua benefit. It was 4 AM and the streets were still buzzing with activity. Some kids recognised me and yelled “Hey, Masuak!”

Without even trying, Viveiro Rocks!



All Clara wants is a key - a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer's annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key-which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world.

It's there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara's key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is one of the best live-action Disney films. It contains all the magic and the score by James Newton Howard perfectly contains the beloved suits from "The Nutcracker" by Tchaikovsky, while also being new. Keira Knightley is perfect as the Sugar Plum Fairy. Great family film!

What goes around, comes around. Infamous Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger was murdered inside a federal prison in West Virginia on Tuesday. He was serving a life sentence for the many crimes he committed in his long and notorious career, but apparently, someone felt he deserved to die right then and there.

89-year-old Bulger was recently transferred to the maximum-security Hazelton prison in Bruceton Mills, West Virginia. According to multiple accounts, the crime boss’ health was deteriorating.

The Bureau of Prisons issued a statement, saying that for “safety, security and privacy reasons, we can not disclose specifics regarding inmate movement or transfers; nor can we disclose an inmate’s health information.”

James Joseph "Whitey" Bulger Jr. was an Irish-American former organized crime boss of the Winter Hill Gang in Boston, Massachusetts. Federal prosecutors indicted Bulger for nineteen murders based on grand jury testimony from Kevin Weeks and other former associates.

“Freddy hated guys who abused women. Whitey was a rat who killed women. It’s probably that simple,” McDonough said.

Victory is the artistic expression of Steve Farland’s vision to spread healing. With Master Builder/Artist Brian Sartor, the soldiers were brought to life limb by limb, foot by foot.

7 Artistic Sculptures crafted from various chair parts and up to 27 feet tall!

Broken Pieces, Victory. is a vision of humanity where all the people fit and the smallest pieces are as important as the large ones, Una faccia, Una Razza -One Face, One Race. 

There is only us here on earth and we need each other and art and love are the most valuable commodities. Pieces for Peace !

Here are some pictures from the Artexpo NYC 18 and ArtSanDiego where I put out corner blocks which are used for strengthening the chair legs and are the smallest part of a chair and asked people to write a message to humanity and place them on the sculpture called Humanity where it is reaching out to the Creator. Steve Farland


In its second breath of life, Steve and Brian now take " Victory" on a coast-to-coast tour. Their updated soldiers have been given new powers and armor to spread his wish for mending the universe. Now you, too, can find peace and healing with help from Victory.

After you get over that initial shock... then you move into the genius of it... fashioned into these gigantic totems that make the world stand up and be counted, they make us look.

This is a metaphor that says there is a solution to the world problems we have... these broken pieces can be fixed and repaired and formulated into a whole recognizable body.

That's what's so powerful about this exhibit.

President Claire Underwood

“My turn.”

Those two words — which closed the Season 5 finale of “House of Cards” — could not have been more prophetic.

When the Netflix political potboiler returns for its sixth and final season on Nov. 2, Robin Wright’s first-lady-turned-commander-in-chief Claire Underwood will be in the seat of power.

The character was always slated to move into the Oval Office, but with the hasty exit of star Kevin Spacey amid sexual harassment allegations, the transition was cemented.

Production was already underway when BuzzFeed published an interview on Oct. 29, 2017, with Anthony Rapp, detailing sexual abuse at the hands of Spacey when Rapp was just 14.

The #MeToo firestorm, which had sparked a few weeks earlier with accusations against Harvey Weinstein, soon engulfed Spacey, as multiple allegations of similar behavior came to light. Netflix and MRC, the studio that produces “House of Cards,” quickly shut down production; on Nov. 3, the actor was fired.

The revelations and the lightning-speed fallout left cast and crew reeling. “We were all very shocked and surprised,” says Wright. “And then sad.”


Lisbeth Salander, the cult figure and title character of the acclaimed Millennium book series created by Stieg Larsson, will return to the screen in The Girl in the Spider’s Web, a first-time adaptation of the recent global bestseller.

Golden Globe winner Claire Foy, the star of “The Crown,” will play the outcast vigilante defender under the direction of Fede Alvarez, the director of 2016’s breakout thriller Don’t Breathe; the screenplay adaptation is by Steven Knight and Fede Alvarez & Jay Basu.

In the case of the new, two-part documentary, The Facebook Dilemma, which began last night. Frontline's investigation was sparked by the extraordinary impact Facebook has had here and abroad. They were particularly interested in a central question: what did Facebook know about the consequences of its mission to connect the world, and how did it address these issues?

Part one of The Facebook Dilemma is posted below in full. Part 2 premieres tonight at 10/9c on PBS (check your local listings) and online, and tune in for part two tomorrow at 10/9c.

Producer/director Ava DuVernay is working with Netflix on a Prince documentary, two sources have confirmed to Variety. The project has the full cooperation of the late artist’s estate, which is providing with interviews, archival footage, photos, and archive access. The multiple-part documentary will cover the artist’s entire life.

“Prince was a genius and a joy and a jolt to the senses,” she told Deadline in an article published after the news had broken Monday night. “The only way I know how to make this film is with love. And with great care. I’m honored to do so and grateful for the opportunity entrusted to me by the estate.” The Oscar-nominated filmmaker has been at work on the project for several months.

While renowned for her work on “Selma,” “Queen Sugar” and others, DuVernay made her big-screen debut in 2008 with “This Is the Life,” which chronicled the alternative hip-hop scene in Los Angeles in the 1990s.
