“A Blast from the Past”
“Hotshots” looks at a movie!
The Company You Keep is based on the 2003 novel of the same name by Neil Gordon; Robert Redford produced, directed, and stars in it; and it is about an anti-war protester from the Seventies who has been underground all this time, but is now being chased by the FBI for a murder that occurred in a bank robbery that went bad.
This is somewhat ironic, because the protester, Nick Sloan, was a member of the Weather Underground, also known as Weathermen, who used bombs to draw attention to their cause, which was an anti-Establishment protest against the war in Vietnam.
The story erupts into motion when a woman who was also a part of the movement is captured by the FBI, and a young newspaper reporter, played by Shia LaBeouf, starts digging into the details of her arrest and discovers a link between her and a lawyer named Jim Grant, who lives in the area.
The reporter’s editor tells him, “You keep telling me you’re a good reporter, right? Prove it.”
After more digging into Grant’s background and the details of the bank robbery in Detroit, the reporter believes that Grant is actually Nick Sloan, whom the FBI has been looking for since the Seventies and making them look bad, because they could never catch him.
The reporter’s suspicions prove to be true, and after Sloan gets his brother to take care of Sloan’s daughter, who is 11 years old, Sloan takes off across country with both the FBI and the reporter after him.
Although the FBI believes that Sloan is just running to escape capture, the reporter thinks that Sloan has something else in mind, and the reporter is right.
Sloan is searching for Mimi Lurie, another protester from back in the day, and he is looking up other colleagues who might be able to help him find Mimi, because Sloan believes that her help is the only way that he can get his daughter back.
The people that Sloan gets in touch with are all played by famous actors, so many, in fact, that their appearance can become distracting.
The Company You Keep is a look back at a time when the whole country was in turmoil and a protest group believed idealistically that what they were doing was right, a blast from the past.

In this Jann Scott’s Journal Jann talks to small business and explains to them how they are being ripped off bu big SEO companys. He talks about how they don’t care about advertisers and why they are all failing. He gives you a solution on how to advertise for less locally and win,
First of all we have been in the online advertising business longer than any of these companys. And we have been in traditional advertising longer than that. So we know of what we speak.
If you are a small business you cannot afford the crap shoot that the aforementioned companies try to sell you. They don’t and can’t produce results. They take all of your money and you hope business improves. But it doesn’t. If it does it does out of your own sales departments or local tried and true advertising that you know works.
All of these online advertising companies including Twitter sell you smoke and mirrors. But you’re lucky if you make a sales because of them. American business is smartening up and pulling their ads. That is why SEO companies are all losing money. They are all on the bubble, well except for Google. And Google makes money because Eric smith made sure he owns the internet. but Google is ripe for a Federal anti trust act law suit. When that comes, they will collapse because they don’t really make anything or do anything.
Bing which is owned by Microsoft is a loser, but since Microsoft does a ton more that search engine optimization they can absorb the loss. What about Face book. Their ad programs are expensive and they don’t sell product. Face Book sold the auto manufactures until they realized Face book was a dud. Look at “miss Lean In” Cheryl Sandburg. She brought her brand of new age advertising hustle from Google to Face Book with terrible results. She is losing accounts faster than she can get them. Her IPO was a disaster and now with her new bullshit book she is about to leave the company before it fails . In her own words she said ” I have no idea what I am doing ” No she doesn’t. She is living in the second tech bubble.
Look I have bought ads from all of these companies and tracked them. They are a waste of fucking money pure and simple.
If you want good advertising results, you should buy from local advertising concerns with a proven track record. So if you have a store in Boulder you should never buy Google, Twitter, Facebook, or Bing adwords. Never! And you should never buy adwords through Trada or Liggit in Boulder either. Just because they are located in Boulder, they are not going to help you. They are res sellers of Google and the other players. They don’t have a magic solution. They’ve got a bunch of hype. The whole social media and online advertising movement is there for one reason : to take your money for as long as they can and to hell with you.
Here in Boulder and in every other city where we have a channel what we do is take your advertising dollars and spend it right in your city. We don’t do any revenue sharing with Google or FaceBook. We will not do business with them . We compete with them. we are cheaper , faster and better. What we do is create TV campaigns, put up our own Banner ads on our channel, our own Twitter and facebook ads and campigns. We write your blogs, build your Face Book and Twitter pages; We write about you, shoot video about you, we use You tube to promote you but we sure as hell don’t pay them. We don’t pay any social media to promote you. We play by our rules not theirs. Here in Boulder we have Boulder channel 1 set up as a newspaper and TV channel. We have several hundred sponsors and advertisers. We have people here, who all they do all day and night is push sponsor product all over Boulder on Boulder channel 1. End result. We bury Google, Bing, Facebook, Twitter, Trada , Ligit, Yahoo and every other Search engine opt company. We also beat The local Daily Camera and Boulder Weekly. How and why ? Because we find their holes and fill them. If we have an advertiser who has tried everything local you know like Biff, Boulder Magazine, Comcast Cable, etc, we use all of that failure to our advantage. We fill the hole with packages on our channel that pay off.
We not only do that here in Boulder, we do it in every city . So we have very little Advertiser turn over. Our advertisers stick with us year in and year out. That is not the case with these other companies. They loose everybody. We are in fact a billion dollar company waiting to happen. We are more successful than any company mentioned here. We have successfully integrated News papers and Television. That is something no one has done.Then we successfully applied old media and new media to advertising and made adverting customers happy. Advertisers are are the Number 1. Not the community of viewers and readers or sm followers. Not content. It’s our advertisers. Changing the world is secondary keeping advertisers happy.
We are not living is some kind of jerk off dream world of a Boulder Utopian start up entrepreneurial society. We were at Woodstock. We started the revolution. We were in the First Whole Earth Cataloger and Keseys Garage sale. So we know how to save the world and build community. But what we know that the big SEO companies don’t know is how to get results locally. Now would somebody please acquire us so we can help fix your financial woes.

Jann Scott’s Journal is the story and life of Boulder Icon and talk host Jann Scott. He has been in print, on radio and on TV in Boulder since 1989. Some consider him the voice of Boulder’s soul.
an attitude” to see what they do. Then it doesn’t hurt to meet with police safety experts. It is also important to know who your enemies are and what potential they have to kill you.
In my case my life has been threatened so many times, I became proactive in my own protection and defense.
I have had police tell me straight up. We can’t protect you, you have to protect yourself.
As a talk show host I have interviewed countless Gang experts, cops of all types and I came away with one solidifying factor.
Cops carry guns in holsters on their hips. They wear bullet proof vests and they are constantly vigil when on the job. If you are a criminal or violent offender and you are going to get into a gun fight with a cop , you are probably going to lose.
If you are a mouthy talk show host and piss off the wrong element of society, you better be as prepared as a cop when bad guys come gunning for you or you are going to die.
An expert in the Amend program which treats violent offenders once asked me, “do you actually think you are going to out draw a violent man who is intent on killing you??”
People who are targets, who carry concealed weapons will never out draw a violent offender or come out of an ambush alive.
Now just so that you know in my line of work I have been kidnapped at gun point by three assailants who were never caught. I have had guns pulled on me twice. One was a drug dealer who aimed a gun at my chest point blank from his car window because he did not like my stance on drugs. I instantly disarmed him, drug him out of the car by his hair and pinned him until the sheriff got there..
The second time was during a live radio show with former DA Bill Ritter and Governor Rohmer at 9th and Corona in Denver. A right wing Arian man wanted to shoot me . He was subdued by two Denver PD who were standing in the crowd.
I don’t think Ritter nor Romer know how close we all came to dying that night.
Even so, I had two armed body guards provided by the Radio station standing ten feet from me and they missed the whole thing.
Body guards are a good investment when tensions are high and people are threatening your life. I have always hired armed body guards in my career on Radio and TV. You never know who or when an assailant will jump out of the bushes and shoot you dead when you are getting out of your car.
That happened to my colleague Alan Berg in 1984. He had so taunted the Aryan nation that they ambushed him and killed him outside his home.
When Seth Brigham kept whispering in my ear “ I can kill you any time I want” I wasn’t waiting to call 911 to protect myself. I hired an armed guard to watch Seth and to protect me. In that case the police could not protect me and the media made a joke out of Seths threats.
You cannot listen to people who say you are over reacting when you get death threats. The Daily Camera were in such denial in their reporting, that they actually made it dangerous for me. I told them about it in no uncertain terms. They still thought it was a joke. But you can’t listen to people who have never experienced vehement threats from fans, callers or political crazies who have targeted you.
You cannot listen to nay sayers when your life is being threatened.
Under extreme circumstances, I have armed myself to the teeth and wore a bullet proof vest. I have actually walked down the middle of a dark street with a gun in hand just to secure my ability to get to my car and drive home.
I have had black Cripps gangsters follow me to my car knowing that they were not going to kill me with out a fight. I have had Body guards walk with with me with shot guns to my car.
I have told people on the air if you come for me I will be ready and you may get a few rounds off at me, but I am taking you with me. It is very important to not show fear to violent offenders and to let them know you are as big a nightmare as they are. I swear that has saved my life more than once. That is the kind of attitude you have to have with violent offenders intent on hurting you.
You have to know when you are in a war zone and be prepared to defend yourself and match the threat with overwhelming bravado and visible firepower. Visible firepower.
If you in the line of work where people want to kill you… You know provocative talk show host, DA, cop, etc…. I think you have to be as prepared as a street smart cop.
I have taken multiple self defense classes. One was model mugging for men. How to defend against multiple assailants with hand guns. I have studied and practiced shoot no shoot scenarios. I have gone up against armed gunmen.
My son is a LERP special forces Marine. When I see him we train in how to disarm assailants at 30 paces.
So yes I take my personal protection very seriously. I learned from Denver Police: refuse to be a victim.
Now with me. It is protect myself or get out of the TV talk business.
And that is the question high profile people have to ask themselves, : How far am I willing to go for personal protection. ?

“Multicultural and Multigenerational Love Story”
“Hotshots” looks at a movie!
Admission is full of laughs and enough awkward situations that produce their own laughs that you almost forget that basically you almost overlook the fact that it is also a love story on many different levels.
Tina Fey plays Portia Nathan, an admissions officer at Princeton University, Paul Rudd plays John Pressman, the founder and head of an alternative high school in New England, and they had a mutual friend 16 years earlier when they were both classmates at Dartmouth.
Their mutual connection plays an important part in the story.
Portia has been working as an admissions officer so long that her speeches to student applicants are given by rote and amount to not much more than “If this is is the right place for you, then you will get in.”
Portia admits that she is not good with kids, but she gets excited when she learns that the dean of admissions, played by Wallace Shawn, is retiring, and she and another officer are in consideration to replace him, because if she gets the job this will be her last travel season.
John calls Portia and invites her to visit his school, which is having its first graduating class, because he would like her to meet an exceptional student, Jeremiah, who is interested in attending Princeton.
Portia agrees to visit, because her mother, played by Lily Tomlin, lives near the school, and so Portia could also visit her mother.
Well, the students at the New Quest School are so exceptional that they force Portia to change the speech of rote that she always gives, but the most interesting thing about Portia’s visit is that John informs her that Jeremiah is probably Portia’s son, whom she gave up for adoption after she had him in college.
When Portia meets Jeremiah, they have enough in common that Portia becomes convinced that he is her son, but, of course, she and John don’t tell Jeremiah that, and this new complication in Portia’s life changes her situation and behavior back at Princeton.
And Portia does a bad, bad thing because of it.
Given all the complications in the story, the audience can’t tell if it is going to have a happy ending or not, and so I won’t ruin it for you.
Admission is a multicultural love story, and a multigenerational one, too.
