Former Member Spills Hells Angels Secrets. - THE DIG

The DISH Insider’s Guide to Entertainment News Entertainment TV Shows Movies Technology Hopper 3 Tips & Tricks DISH Cable TV Packages Internet Service TV & Internet Bundles By Hopper Magazine Entertainment August 13, 2015 Former Member Spills Hells Angels Secrets. George Christie Jr. was one of the leaders of the notorious Hells Angels Motorcycle Club for 35 years, the longest-sitting president in its history. Now out of the group, he is hosting the new History series Outlaw Chronicles: Hells Angels, which looks to reveal the secrets of the club over the course of its six hourlong episodes beginning Tuesday, Aug. at 10pm ET. “I figured it was the appropriate time to tell the story from my perspective and my words,” Christie tells us. “It’s interesting because it’s not really from a law enforcement perspective. That’s usually the way these stories are told. It’s very unique.” Among the topics addressed will be several criminal allegations that the members acted at the behest of the leaders to move the enterprise further into criminal acts. “My position, and I hold it steadfast throughout all six episodes, is the Hells Angels is not a criminal organization, but there are criminals within the organization like there are in any walks of life,” Christie clarifies. Also touched upon will be the infamous incident at the Altamont Free Concert in 1969 that ended up degenerating into a melee during which a Hells Angels member (the group had been enlisted to provide security) stabbed an audience member to death. “We’ll talk about Altamont,” Christie says, “what really happened there. I think a lot of people would be surprised. In fact, someone that was working with me on this was completely surprised as to what really happened at Altamont. They had no idea what transpired there and the aftermath. We had a running battle with the Rolling Stones for several years because they didn’t fulfill their agreement with the club. That’s all going to be revealed, [including an] unsuccessful attempt to blow up a yacht that Mick was on.” The Hells Angels have a reputation for taking vengeance on members who speak out about the group, but Christie isn’t overly concerned for his safety regarding this project. “That’s really not an issue with me,” he says. “Certainly there are people that have taken exception. When you’re a leader in an organization for 35 years and you have a revelation and decide to leave, certainly there’s a faction of your old associates that aren’t going to be happy with you. I feel that it’s my story and I want to tell it from my perspective, so that’s what I’ve decided to do.” Christie thinks this story will be particularly enlightening for average viewers with no inside information on the motorcycle world in general, or the Hells Angels in particular, a group that Christie says is on “every continent in the world” and is continuing to grow and evolve. “What I want [viewers] to understand is they have completely misinterpreted what the organization is all about and what its primary function is.” Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google + LinkedIn Email Previous article How to Live Like Your Favorite TV Characters!

Game Of Silence - THE DIG

The DISH Insider’s Guide to Entertainment News Entertainment TV Shows Movies Technology Hopper 3 Tips & Tricks DISH Cable TV Packages Internet Service TV & Internet Bundles By Hopper Magazine Entertainment April 8, 2016 Game Of Silence Dark Secrets Come Out Of The Past In Gripping New NBC Drama. NBC’s new drama Game of Silence has as its backdrop one of those coming-of-age stories featuring dark secrets that may call to mind Stephen King works like Stand by Me and It, not only in its subject matter, but also in its literary feel. That probably comes in large part from the contributions of writer/executive producer David Hudgins (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) and executive producer Carol Mendelsohn (CSI), who manage to effectively combine the realism of Hudgins’ work with the mystery and occasional violence of Mendelsohn’s. “The nuances of the characters and the complexity of the characters, the subject matter that was very unapologetic” were some of the things that initially attracted costar Larenz Tate, who plays Shawn, one of a group of friends who have a dark secret they thought was buried 25 years ago come back to light. David Lyons as Jackson, Michael Raymond-James as Gil, Derek Phillips as Boots and Bre Blair as Jessie round out the group. As children, a well-intentioned effort to save Jessie from her alcoholic mother ultimately cost the boys nine months at a youth detention facility. Now, as a mystery deeper than their buried past resurfaces, the old friends must band together to right some wrongs. “The fact that they are now going to deal with it because they’re forced to deal with it … as an actor, you always want to see characters jump off the page, and all the characters were very flush and had presence,” Tate added. In a series like this, it can be challenging for an actor to portray a character without necessarily knowing how the mystery plays out. Tate said that wasn’t necessarily a problem here. “The great thing about Hudgins, if we really wanted to know something, he’d say, ‘Call and I’ll tell you.’ That’s if you really want to know. If you can wait, fine. There are so many secrets, but he didn’t keep secrets from us. ‘I’ll tell you if you want to know. If you think it helps you, I’ll tell you.’ … And there are certain things I didn’t want to know, you know?” For the rest of us, though, we have to learn the surprises as they come. And unlike with a Stephen King story, there’s no cheating by jumping ahead to the end. A sneak peek of the new series will air on NBC Tuesday, April 12 at 10pmET, and then the series will regularly air Thursdays starting April 14.  — Written by Jeff Pfeiffer, Hopper Magazine Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google + LinkedIn Email Previous article Producer Gale Anne Hurd Wants To Make Aliens Scary Again In “Hunters.” Next article How to Plan a Vacation, Minus the Information Overload You may also like Die Hard Is A Christmas Movie Lights, Camera, Animation Recipes For Entertainment DISH For The Holidays 2017 Strikes Again What Happened?

10 Thoughts That Go Through Your Mind When You're Tubing - THE DIG

The DISH Insider’s Guide to Entertainment News Entertainment TV Shows Movies Technology Hopper 3 Tips & Tricks DISH Cable TV Packages Internet Service TV & Internet Bundles By Alison Daily Entertainment August 15, 2015 10 Thoughts That Go Through Your Mind When You're Tubing Summer is almost over, so you need to make the most of these next few weeks. Time to find that one friend who owns a boat so you can go tubing! What is it about tubing that beachgoers love so much? Is it the speed? The water? Maybe it’s their bodies being violently jolted while they’re pulled behind a speedboat easily clocking 30 miles per hour. What a rush, right? Let’s ponder what goes on in your mind when tubing: 1. How am I going to get onto this tube? Somebody give me a boost! Oh wait, it’s just me. This is awkward. 2. All right, I’m up. Now what do I hold on to? What’s my best option here so I don’t get tossed out of this thing? I think I’ll go belly down. There’s no way they’ve only given me these itty-bitty handles. Is there a seat belt? Nope, the boat is already moving. This must be it. 3. This isn’t so bad. It’s like I’m floating in a pool. Except it’s not relaxing. And it kind of hurts. And we’re going faster. 4. This is actually bad. This is nothing like floating in a pool. I regret every decision I’ve ever made. 5. What happened to my bathing suit? Did I just lose my suit? Oh never mind, I’m good — the colossal amount of water that’s punching my entire body is only making me feel like my swimsuit was ripped off. 6. Was that my foot I just saw? Yup. My feet literally just came up over my head and hit me in the face. A tubing scorpion. 7. Where are these waves coming from? I. Ouch! Can’t. Stop. Ouch! Bouncing. Why are they doing this to me? 8. I’m flying! I’m catching some air! This is so awes… Wait. No. Slow down! I don’t think I can hold on any longer! Do I hang on and risk being tossed around more? Do I let go and sacrifice myself to the waves? 9. I fell off. There are no words. Just pain. 10. Who’s next? That was so much fun! Let me drive the boat; I’ll pull you around the lake nice and slow!

Mad Men Recap: The Song Fades Out - THE DIG

The DISH Insider’s Guide to Entertainment News Entertainment TV Shows Movies Technology Hopper 3 Tips & Tricks DISH Cable TV Packages Internet Service TV & Internet Bundles By Alison Daily TV Shows May 12, 2015 Mad Men Recap: The Song Fades Out The second-to-last episode of Mad Men begins and ends, like so many episodes, with shots of Don Draper alone. The opening shot of “The Milk and Honey Route,” co-written and directed by series creator Matthew Weiner (in collaboration with Carly Wray), is actually Don’s dream of being found out. He’s driving at night, listening to Merle Haggard’s “Okie from Muskogee” — a “rebellious” song that sticks up for the status quo — when a cop pulls him over and says, “We’ve been looking for you … you knew we’d catch up with you eventually.” Nobody catches up with Don in that sense. But he does give himself away voluntarily at a Veterans Administration fund-raiser for a man who accidentally burned his own house down (something Don has done, figuratively, over and over), confessing that he accidentally killed his commanding officer while leaving out the part about stealing a dead man’s identity; by the end, he gets punished for something that another man — a young con man — did. There’s a shot in this episode of Don reading Mario Puzo’s The Godfather, a book about the world as seen through the eyes of a criminal. After he finishes it, his two possible replacements (delivered to his hotel room by the young con man) include The Andromeda Strain, about scientists trying to figure out how to stop a potentially apocalyptic plague, and Hawaii, about multiple groups of immigrants settling in Hawaii over the centuries and reinventing themselves. By the end, he’s sitting at a bus stop somewhere in the Midwest while Buddy Holly’s “Everyday” — a song from 13 years earlier, by a man who died young — plays on the soundtrack. As often happens on this series, many of the details in Don’s subplot and others feel as if they have dream-logic significance, even though the events are taking place in something like “reality.” In the second half of its final season, Mad Men has given a lot of its major character subplots that feel like farewells of a sort: Joan almost fighting the good fight and then taking half her money and leaving to begin a new life with her lover Richard, who’s basically Roger without the drama; Roger realizing that he effectively destroyed the agency by engineering the McCann deal to save it, and embarking on a seemingly satisfying affair with Megan’s mom; Megan taking a payoff from Don and returning his ring. The events of last week might’ve provided a farewell for Peggy: After a period of extended mourning for her life at the old agency, in which she lingers at the former office like a ghost (roller-skating in one scene while Roger does a Phantom of the Opera routine on organ), she reconciles herself to working at McCann and makes a Don Draper–like charismatic burnout entrance, marching into the place hung-over with sunglasses and a cigarette, with an armload of belongings that includes Roger’s gift of a painting of an octopus pleasuring a lady. I’m not saying that was her final scene (I have no inside knowledge of Mad Men plots), nor am I saying this would be the ideal send-off for her — I’d love to find out what happens with Stevie, the guy she nearly went to Paris with, and get some sense of whether she can confound the sexist culture of McCann — only that as parting images go, it’s not a bad one. Pete seems to be getting back together with Trudy and moving her and the kids to Wichita, Kansas, to take a job as an executive at Lear Jet. That closing image of Don at the bus stop — divested now of his job, his apartment, his wife, his suit, and even his car — feels pretty close to a perfect parting glimpse for the show’s main character, though I imagine he’ll have to go back East to deal with Betty (alas, the only major character to get an ending-ending this season — a period rather than a question mark; more on this in a moment) and their children. The Betty story was heartrending because her terminal cancer diagnosis came just as she seemed to be finding some measure of peace and taking steps toward constructing (that big Mad Men theme) her own identity, apart from the expectations of Henry, Don, her friends, and society. This woman who’d been in and out of therapy and various self-help organizations for years was going back to college to study psychology. But then — and here we go with the dreamy-yet-not-quite-a-dream aspects again — in an episode filled with references to apples (the Pete and Trudy plotline, with their daughter baking pies), Betty falls and breaks, of all things, a rib. This leads to an X-ray, which reveals a rapidly metastasizing cancer that’s going to take her life within a year, less if she forgoes treatment. (The slow zoom into a profile of her face as Henry and the doctor discuss her treatment is one of the show’s finest filmmaking moments.) Betty’s decision to forgo treatment becomes the locus of action in this subplot. Henry wants Betty to see one or more oncologists, and callously breaks her confidence and tells Sally about the diagnosis, in hopes that the girl will pressure her mother to buckle and say yes to aggressive treatment; she does, but Betty explains that she’s been through enough to know when something is over, and everyone is just going to have to get used to the idea and accept that her decision is, well, final. (When you remember Betty’s prior cancer scare several seasons ago, the cop’s line to Don in the dream seems prophetic: “You knew we’d catch up with you eventually.”) The contrast between Henry’s stridently macho denial and Betty’s nearly serene acceptance is a perfect illustration of classically gendered responses to irrevocable bad news: Henry refuses to accept that nature’s decision is final, and selfishly (and understandably) wants her to treat the cancer so that he and the kids can have a few more months with her, whereas Betty doesn’t see the point of going down a longer road that’s going to deposit her in the same place as a shorter one. Henry comes into focus in this episode in ways he never quite has before: You see once again why Betty was attracted to him (he’s slightly boring, but a rock; not as exciting as Don but also not duplicitous or volatile) while also clearly sensing his limitations. And these limitations become the source of the tragedy of Henry. Throughout his adult life, he’s been defined (and has defined himself) in proximity to men of great power and influence, but those connections are useless now. “What do you think would happen to Nelson Rockefeller if he got this?” he demands. “He would die!” Betty exclaims, one of the few times this episode where she raises her voice. The scene of Henry visiting Sally at school is devastating on its own, even more so if you see it as a classic Mad Men scene of a man demanding that a woman express emotions he’s been conditioned not to express himself: Henry tells the girl that she can cry if he wants, then breaks down, sobbing inconsolably. (I never expected Henry Francis to destroy me emotionally during a Mad Men episode, but here we are.) Betty’s letter to Sally is proof that, like so many characters, she has grown in subtle but profound ways. Her initial reaction to Sally’s return home is to coldly walk past her in the doorway, an action reminiscent of Betty’s past denials of death and its implications: See season three’s “The Arrangements,” where she accused her own soon-to-be-deceased father of insensitivity when he tried to discuss funeral details and the disposition of his estate. But later she speaks very frankly to Sally about her reasons for not seeking treatment, then gives her a letter (to be opened posthumously, though Sally of course opens it posthaste) that’s as elegant and restrained as Betty at her very best. She wants to be buried in her favorite dress, the blue chiffon one; these and other requests and observations are conveyed in voice-over, and the episode cuts between Sally reading the letter through tears and Betty climbing the same steps where she’d collapsed earlier in the episode. (January Jones, derided as a weak link during the early years of the show was brilliant here, in what felt like a cumulative confirmation of what Weiner saw in her to begin with.) The ongoing Don-on-the-road plotline mirrors Betty’s for the first time. One of the recurring viewer complaints about Betty post-divorce was that, absent Don, she wasn’t really connected to the central world of the show anymore, which meant the dispatches from her marriage to Henry Francis felt like scenes in a different series that was tangentially connected to the main action through Don (with Sally serving as conduit). Don’s not really connected to the main action now, either. Nobody is. That’s because Sterling Cooper & Partners (or whatever they were calling it, depending on the season) doesn’t exist anymore. In this subplot especially, but really throughout the episode, there’s a sense of the center giving way, of things falling apart, and of everyone just dealing with it in their own way. There are multiple instances of actual machines, and in one case, a body-as-machine, breaking down: Don’s car, the TV in his hotel room, the motel owner’s wife’s typewriter, and Betty’s cancer; in that shot of Pete eating pie alone in the kitchen, we’re primed by all the breakdowns to assume than the light turned off by Trudy is a power failure. As is often the case on Mad Men, and as is often the case in life, some people can’t win for losing while others can’t lose for winning. Don is definitely in the former camp this week: Within the space of a few scenes, he gets stranded in a small town, taken for ten bucks by a young and rather terrible con artist, contemplates the curvy, oiled body of a young woman at poolside only to get cock-blocked by some kids and their dad, gets drunk at the VA fund-raiser and confesses one of his greatest shames, then gets savagely beaten with a phone book by the same men who’d tenderly assured him that he was in a safe space. He leaves town without even trying to explain that he had nothing to do with the theft of the money: He just leaves a bag of cash at the front desk of the motel. As I’ve noted in other season-seven recaps, Don has gotten very comfortable with the idea of accepting indignity, unfairness, and bad news without letting it eat him up, and without feeling the need to go ballistic with rage and denial. He dispenses a fair amount of wisdom in this episode, including the admonition to the young trickster that when you steal something so valuable that its loss would cause an entire community to rise up in outrage, you can’t stick around: You have to become someone else, and that requires submitting to an illusion that’s not as easy to maintain as it probably sounds when you’re young and dumb and filled with fantasies of omnipotence. Pete, meanwhile, is in the can’t-lose-for-winning column. He’s already got a gig with McCann that assures him a quarter million a year and appears to be shaping himself into a conquering hero, the guy who saved all the old major accounts that mattered (including Joan’s beloved Avon, which might’ve left following her departure). Then Duck Phillips tricks him into the first in a series of job interviews with Lear Jet, which he aces by playing (well, not even playing; he actually means it) hard-to-get. By the end, Pete has generated enough fascination to earn a promise of Lear Jet buying out his contract with McCann via stock options. And his sincerity towards Trudy, along with his unforced sweetness with their daughter, succeeds in winning her back. How ironic that Pete, who for several seasons felt like a younger, inept, wannabe Don Draper, would find himself in this Don Draper–like situation, essentially falling into a big pile of money through no fault or doing of his own, then convincing a woman he’d repeatedly, grievously wronged to give him one more chance to wipe the slate clean. (Here, again, we have a couple of mirrored subplots: Pete succeeds in reinventing himself, where Don spends much of the episode dealing with the fallout of all his reinventions, and cautioning another Don Draper type that this is not as enjoyable a life as he probably thinks.) (Also — and forgive the butted-up parentheses, it’s late! — Duck Phillips’s status as a flamed-out, train-wrecked doppelgänger of Don has never seemed more clear than it does here. He’s a pickled dervish version of Professor Harold Hill, whirling through people’s comparatively placid lives and drawing them into crazed schemes that he just pulled out of his ass ten minutes earlier, but which work out often enough to make people think he’s worth the trouble.) There’s a lot of talk of morality and socially enforced modes of living in this episode, including Henry’s patriarchal attempts to set the terms of Betty’s response to cancer (he repeatedly thwarts her attempt to control the flow of information and tries to make key decisions for her), as well as discussions of how to think about and respond to various kinds of deception (a nice grace note: One of the men at the VA hall had a drugstore-owner father who was known for cracking down on kids who smoked and drank). It was heartening to watch the serially unfaithful Pete successfully warn his brother against an act of infidelity. During most of the show’s run, Pete reserved his most profound expressions of longing for unattainable “other” women, but in this episode, that look falls upon Trudy and their daughter. There’s only one episode of Mad Men left, and rather than fret over whether or not the series will stick the landing, I’ve taken to thinking of a line from a song that accompanies the final scene of The Sopranos: “Oh, the movie never ends / It goes on and on and on and on.” If you think of Mad Men less as a very long story than a set of short stories or story-songs with the same characters, moving forward in time in chronological order while not necessarily feeling obligated to sum things up for us in a neat and tidy way, the traditional expectations about endings seem less burdensome. What matters more on a show like this isn’t the ending per se, but the end note: In other words, it’s less about what happens than the mood of it, the way that final note sustains. “The Milk and Honey Route” felt like the second-to-last bar of a song that’s about to fade out rather than end. The characters that are still alive will continue living. The dream will continue but, like Betty, we won’t be around to see it.   This article was written by MATT ZOLLER SEITZ from Vulture and was legally licensed through the NewsCred publisher network.
