2018 was a high time for Grateful Dead fans in New York City. In addition to hosting numerous outdoor performances from Dead & Company and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, New Yorkers were introduced to a new Dead-themed tribute band this year by the name of High Time. The five-piece rock band began hosting concerts at Union Pool in the north Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg starting back in March and have expanded to a few smaller markets outside the city in the months since. The band has played the small but fun Brooklyn venue seven more times since their debut back in the spring, more often than not to a sold-out crowd of local Deadheads.High Time’s show on Sunday acted as their last NYC gig of 2018, and they closed out their inaugural year with a thrilling two-set performance of Dead favorites, in addition to a notable debut from one of the jam scene’s newest tribute bands.High Time focuses primarily on the early, primal years of the Grateful Dead live catalogue (1965-1974) and they make sure to create a set and setting fitting for the band’s LSD-friendly era. Colorfully psychedelic liquid light projections covered nearly every inch of the performance room, including the stage, making for an environment similar to that of Ken Kesey‘s original Acid Tests of the mid-1960s.Rather than coming out with an instrumental jam as some Dead shows tend to do, High Time started Sunday’s performance with the familiar opening guitar riff of “China Cat Sunflower”. The room immediately filled with an abundance of dance-fueling energy as they played the popular song from Aoxomoxoa right into “I Know You Rider” for a thrilling start to the night. Up next was “Jack Straw”, with both guitarists Michael O’Neill and Jake Rabinbach (Francis and The Lights) sharing a slightly embarrassed smile when they both missed their singing cues heading into the song’s first verse. It’s that kind of on-stage looseness which has helped the band gain such a strong local following of like-minded spirits within their first year performing Dead songs. “Brown Eyed Women” came next with a great solo from Rabinbach, followed by “Ramble On Rose”. The opening set took a wild turn as the band then tore right into “Truckin”, which heard the audience saying fare thee well to 2018 with the packed room all yelling out the lyrics of “What a long strange trip it’s been!” The song also featured some dreamy slide guitar work from Rabinbach during the outro solo, keeping the adrenaline going as they transitioned into “The Other One” and further continuing into “Morning Dew”. The set would come to a climactic close with another jam-filled song from Grateful Dead’s 1967 debut album, “Viola Lee Blues”.Set two was about as head-y as any Deadhead could imagine for a final show of the year. The band returned to start the second half of the show with “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo”, which transitioned into “Playing in the Band”, sung by drummer Adam Kriney. The lengthy solo for the Bob Weir solo tune featured some really fun stand-alone interplay between Kriney and bassist Jake Vest. The jam quickly took a fun but dark turn when pianist Kevin Uehlinger (Ice Pedal Flowers) launched the venue into orbit with a mini “Space” section courtesy of his keyboards. Taking the audience into space was right where the band had in mind as they then continued the jam into Robert Hunter‘s lyrical masterpiece, “Dark Star”. The band then brought their audience back down to earth with O’Neill diving into the opening chords of “Eyes of the World”, before revisiting “Playing In The Band” for its reprise.“If you stay late, you get to hear the hits!” Rabinbach told a still-packed venue as the clock passed 11 p.m. He held true to his word as a quartet of Dead “hits” would begin with their live debut of “St. Stephen”, and charging into “The Eleven”, “Turn On Your Lovelight”, and “Scarlett Begonias” all consecutively to close out the set. The band never even got the chance to leave the stage to rest before the encore. They instead went right into one final song of the night with “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad”. Photos from Sunday night’s show can be seen in the gallery below.High Time is scheduled to start 2019 with a concert at Garcia’s at The Cap early next year on January 30th.

Powered by Firework Romelu Lukaku just loves scoring on his league debut, and on Monday the Belgian forward yet again repeated the same feat, this time for Inter as they easily beat Lecce 4-0 which was also Antonio Conte’s first game in charge. Conte who replaced Luciano Spallletti for the Inter job, identified Lukaku as his number one target and the Belgian did not disappoint his new manager scoring the third goal for his team on the hour mark.Advertisement It was Inter’s opening game of the season, and the hosts started their campaign in a convincing style. On the other hand, Lecce, who are back in the topflight after a seven-year gap, made a bright start early in the match. However, Inter quickly responded through counterattack and Lautaro Martínez hit the crossbar with a free header from a Candreva cross. The goals started to arrive when Brozovic scored on the 21st minute with Sensi doubling the lead three minutes later. Lukaku added the third after an hour, firing in from close range after the goalkeeper parried Martinez’s shot from 18 yards. Lecce substitute Farias was shown a straight red with 14 minutes left for a tackle from behind and Candreva added a fourth six minutes from time.Advertisement Conte, who previously won three Serie A titles with Juventus and one English Premier League title with Chelsea, was delighted with his new number 9.“I am very happy and satisfied; I like working with these guys who have always shown great willingness, Romelu has entered the Inter world with great humility, he is ready to work for the team.” said Conte after the match.Advertisement You can check out Lukaku’s debut goal for Inter here: Advertisement

Powered by Firework Veteran India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on Saturday said that the Punjab government withdrew his nomination for this year’s Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award as he doesn’t fit in the category for the country’s highest sporting honour. However, it made some speculation over the withdrawal of his nomination for the prestigious award which the experienced spinner thought to make it clear.Advertisement “I have been flooded with calls as to why Punjab Govt withdrew my name from Khel Ratna nominations. The truth is I am not eligible for Khel Ratna which primarily considers the international performances in last three years,” Harbhajan Singh took to his Twitter and shared this.Advertisement He further added, “The Punjab Govt is not at fault here as they have rightly withdrawn my name. Would urge my friends in media not to speculate.”On the other hand, Punjab Sports Minister Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi has said that his department withdrew the nomination after they have received an email from the Harbhajan Singh himself who claimed that he didn’t fit in the eligibility criteria.Advertisement “We had strongly recommended his nomination. But before it could go to the screening committee or scrutiny committee, he (Harbhajan) advised us to withdraw his application,” Sodhi said to PTI.“I think he must have seen the latest criteria which the government of India has for the Khel Ratna award and may be something which he noticed that it cannot happen or maybe he is thinking over applying for some other award. Whenever he asks us, we will recommend him because he is a top sportsman and a very fine gentleman. Punjab sports department has no issues,” further added Sodhi.However, Harbhajan Singh has faced a rejection last year when his nomination for this award was rejected by the Sports Ministry as his documents had reached late. Meanwhile, he had requested the Punjab sports minister to step in at the time.Harbhajan Singh, who has 417 Test and 269 ODI wickets respectively in his kitty, is an Arjuna Award winner and was also conferred with the prestigious Padma Shri.

While the majority of the North Coast rivers are back on the rise following the rain earlier in the week, I’m wondering if anyone really cares? The spotlight has — and will continue to be — squarely on the Smith River, and for good reason. When fishable, the Smith has given up trophy-sized kings on a daily basis since the first big rain. After dropping into shape last Friday, the Chetco took some of the boat pressure off the Smith and pumped out some very big kings as well. It was not uncommon …
Your location can make or break your film project. Here’s how to find the perfect spot to shoot when you don’t have a budget.Continuing from our write-up “First-Time Filmmakers: How Do You Build A Cast Without a Budget?“, let’s take a look at location elements first-time filmmakers should consider when filmmaking. Tap a plot idea into your phone, grab your camera, call your friends, and go out to shoot a film. It’s quite simple. It’s costly, as the WSJ pointed out in their article “Today, Anybody Can Be a Filmmaker. Here’s What It Might Cost,” but it’s doable. In some circumstances, you may be able to upload it to YouTube before the day is out. With a DSLR/mirrorless camera and Rode VideoMic Pro, you can film virtually anywhere: the city, the beach, the local park (without causing a public disturbance).How important is a location to a film? Very. There is a reason as to why locations have their own, fully-fledged department on a film. You may have heard how important casting is, and how casting the wrong actor can break your film — imagine somebody else playing the Joker in The Dark Knight! Locations work in the same manner, as though they are a character in their own right. Sometimes, like bad acting, they can make or break your scene. Therefore, before you go out to shoot your first film, let’s have a look at some variables you may need to cover.Image via ShaunTurner.What Problems Will You Encounter? Of course, noise is going to be an inherent problem when filming in an environment that isn’t under your complete control. However, the noise in question isn’t just the sound of traffic or people chatting, but sounds from refrigerators, air conditioning fans, the expensive clock on the wall you’re not allowed to remove. If your location is in an office, will you have access to disable these sounds? You could even be filming in a field, away from civilization, and think that your sound will be the least of your worries. But is your location under a flight path?I’ve fallen into one particular scenario where there wasn’t a solution and we had to abandon the location. We were filming near the shorefront that was directly under a flight path. So, we decided to shoot on a Sunday, as planes flying overhead were irregular. There was also a skate park about fifty meters away from our location, so we decided to start at 8 am when the park would be empty. However, the location was also near a lake, and on Sunday mornings the local miniature boat society took their motorized boats out onto the lake. The sound of multiple boat engines completely killed any chance at recording respectable dialogue.Image via Zoltan Nagy.What about the space of your location? Will you be able to set up all of your equipment in that location, as well as the actors and the crew? Are there enough parking spaces for all of the vehicles? Will your location have enough resources? If you’re shooting in a rural village house, will it have enough power sockets for your equipment? You may have agreed to pay for the electricity you use, but will the house even supply enough power for your scene?These are all variables you have to take into account when scouting for a location. By no means is this a complete list, but it’s a good foundation for first-time filmmakers. When you’re working with a micro-budget, choosing your location can be just as important as casting your actors. If the site is too small, you will feel constricted and miss out on a broader shot coverage. If the location is too big, you will start to lose control over the elements of the location. From previous experience, I’ve always found the smaller locations to be the biggest problem. I acquire a location thinking it would be perfect for a particular scene and more than big enough. Come the day of shooting, and there’s several lights, three actors, a sound operator, myself, a camera assistant, and the actual camera — all the sudden, the room becomes a lot smaller than as I first saw it.Image via ermess.If you’re on a micro-budget, it’s ideal to acquire a location that is owned by a relative or friend, be it your father’s workshop or your uncle’s café. You want to be able to shoot at this location without interruption. It’s hard to try and negotiate the conditions of shooting at a location owned by a stranger unless you’re paying them. If you’re shooting at a location that belongs to a family member, you have a lot more leeway. There’s also the added benefit that you can return at a later date, if needed.Before you start to write your short film, make a list of all the locations you have readily available and try to use these locations in the short. If you have a scene that takes place on an army base but you have no access to one, that script is going to be sitting on your shelf for a very long time.Do You Need PermissionWith the advent of compact cinema cameras, guerrilla filmmaking has never been more popular. With the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, you could very easily board the local bus with your talent in order to grab shots of them riding the bus. It breaks a ton of rules, yes, but that’s what guerrilla filmmaking is. However, sometimes it’s better to err on the side of caution and ask permission to shoot at the location, to avoid any consequences.Now, I’m not talking about filming outside of a military compound which will, of course, be met with questions. Instead, try filming on a gray area site like a forest or a beach front that’s under the care of local authorities.Image via scullydion.For example, a project I once worked on required us to shoot a scene in the local woodland. Unfortunately for us, the warden’s lodge was relatively close. So, we decided a run-and-gun guerrilla shoot would be a bad idea. A better idea would be to ask for permission to film in the forest, instead. I spent a day on the phone trying to sort something out, and after being transferred to various departments and listening to numerous on-hold tracks, I finally spoke to the right person. The warden I spoke to was fine with me filming in the forest for free. All I had to do was phone him on the day of filming. He was even going to set up road cones for us.Here is a list of 12 tips to consider, from The Guerrilla Film Makers Pocketbook, when trying to find the right location on a budget.Shooting on location can be a significant advantage, as you will have to do minimal set work, merely dressing.Space can be a major problem, as even the biggest of rooms will become sardine-like with a full crew.Shooting outdoors can be a problem, as there is no way to control the weather.Always try and get permission to shoot wherever you intend to be. Sometimes, if you do foresee problems, it is best to dash in, shoot, and get out as quick as possible. If someone turns up to find out what is happening, try and get them interested and involved, and claim complete ignorance.Getting to and from difficult locations can be very costly in terms of time. One-hour traveling is one hour less shooting.Use movement orders. This is a piece of paper with a photocopied map (the route picked out with highlighter pen), explicit directions, and mobile phone numbers for those who get lost.Facilities for the crew on location can be a problem. Your crew needs a place to eat and sit, as well as a toilet. You can’t ask your star to squat in the bushes.Closing down streets is difficult. The police will be as helpful as they can, but they have crimes to stop and don’t relish the thought of holding the hand of a new producer.When choosing a location, don’t forget the sound.Film crews trash locations. Clean up after yourself, leave muddy boots outside, ban smoking inside, etc.. Remember, you may need to return to the location if there is a problem.Think creatively. Many locations can double for several different parts of your story. This will minimize the time you waste moving between places.Beware of the cool location that is impossible to either light or get cameras into. Buildings with big windows cause lighting problems, turrets with narrow stairwells are tough for carrying kits, and anywhere in big cities will cost you in simply parking alone.These tips aren’t hard laws that cannot be broken. But, they are excellent guidelines to help keep your head above water when searching for a location.Cover image via Jordan Tan.Looking for more filmmaking tips and tricks?

Liverpool boss Klopp hails Milner as ‘man on fire’by Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed James Milner as a “man on fire”.The 33-year-old scored the opener in Wednesday’s 2-1 Carabao Cup win over MK Dons.”This man is on fire, that’s how it is,” said the Reds boss. “He helps a lot and he is a real model for the young players.”If he could play every day, Millie would be like this every day, so that is brilliant.”We could have done better in that final period but we started well as a team but then we got a bit stiff.”We had to force the goal and then you saw Millie (score). The team lacked rhythm and experience and the player with the most rhythm and experience was the best player on the pitch.

Ex-Brighton boss Hughton turns down Stokeby Paul Vegas22 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Brighton boss Chris Hughton has turned down Stoke City.The Potters have begun the search for Nathan Jones’ replacement.Stoke are sacking Jones because of his disastrous nine-month reign and they are bottom of the Championship with just two points.The axe could fall today and the Potters’ hierarchy were keen to try and line up a successor before they dismissed Jones.They approached Hughton, who has been out of work since being sacked by Brighton at the end of last season, but the former Newcastle boss wants to wait in the hope of landing another Premier League job, says the Mirror.Hughton’s refusal is the only reason why Jones is still at his post and he has been a dead man walking since last week.
