Turkuaz Premieres Colorful New “Superstatic” Music Video [Watch]

first_imgOn Tuesday, funk powerhouse Turkuaz premiered the new music video for “Superstatic”, one of the standout tracks from their 2018 album, Life In The City.The video was shot at the famed Brooklyn Bowl in the band’s native Brooklyn, NY in front of green screens and captures the lighthearted energy Turkuaz hopes to exuberate during their live show while also showcasing the colorful personalities of each of the band’s nine members.Related: Turkuaz Goes Bluegrass On “Life In The City” For First Video In New “Unplugged” Session Series [Watch]As guitarist/vocalist Dave Brandwein explains of the new “Superstatic” video, for which he served as the producer,From the inception stage of us writing and recording this song, it was always about capturing the vibrant energy of what we aim to do as a band. It’s a throwback to some of our favorite music of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, but with our own Turkuaz spin. The hope in creating the video was to take that energy and run with it. Though we’ve done videos in the past, we hadn’t successfully captured the various personalities of each member, or visual elements of our live show. I think we achieved this via an explosion of colorful fun and imagination, thanks to the amazing team that put it all together.Directed by Dani Brandwein and Jocelyn Pierce, the “Superstatic” involved a number of personnel who banded together their talents to create something wholly unique and true to the nature of Turkuaz. As Dani Brandwein shares, “Making ‘Superstatic’ in many ways represents the Turkuaz ethos as a whole: throwing everyone’s resources and talents together to create something that hopefully brings people joy – with an extra sprinkling of strangeness. I still can’t believe we turned Brooklyn Bowl into a green screen studio. I wonder if the band that was sound checking that Monday afternoon will ever see this!?”You can watch Turkuaz’s new “Superstatic” video below:Turkuaz – “Superstatic” [Official Music Video][Video: Turkuaz]See below for a full list of production credits for the video:Turkuaz “Superstatic” Music Video CreditsDirected by:Dani BrandweinJocelyn PierceProduced by:Dave BrandweinDirector of Photography:Josh WeinhausVisual FX and Animation:Javier CruzEdited by:Justin SirizzottiCostume Design:Jocelyn Pierce1st Assistant Camera:Sophia AdamsGaffer:Zachai Kalet-SchwartzHair and Makeup:Cassandra ParasView Production CreditsTurkuaz will hit the road again next week for a lengthy run of tour dates stretching throughout the spring and summer.

Former Boca School Principal Fired After Holocaust Email

first_img(Boca Raton, FL) — A former Boca Raton principal is out of work after sending a controversial email to a parent about the Holocaust. It read quote, “I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee. Wednesday night, Palm Beach County public schools fired former Spanish River High School Principal William Latson Wednesday, four months after comments he made about the Holocaust prompted a national outcry.By a 5-2 vote, county school board members approved the veteran principal’s termination on grounds of “ethical misconduct” and “failure to carry out job responsibilities.”The official justification for Latson’s termination was not the explosive comments that drew international attention but his failure to return messages from district officials in the days after his comments became public.The decision culminates months of political turbulence and legal wrangling over Latson’s case, in which the district found itself caught up in an unprecedented furor over the principal’s refusal to state unequivocally to a parent that the Holocaust was a historical fact.Latson was reassigned three months ago and his firing will take effect November 21st, but his lawyer tells the Palm Beach Post he’ll file an appeallast_img read more

Judge Delays Trial for Alleged Wellington Killer Clown

first_imgA Palm Beach County judge is delaying the Wellington Killer Clown trial by four months. The murder trial involving Sheila Keen Warren was set to begin at the end of January, now jury selection is set to begin May 29th per the judge’s decision Friday. The judge also denied Keen Warren’s request to be declared “indigent,” which means she will be required to pay her own legal fees.State prosecutors filed a motion earlier this month that Keen Warren falsified her indigent status by recently transferring hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and assets to her husband. Her attorney, Richard Lubin, argued the defense team needs more time.The judge granted a two-week extension. Meanwhile, Keen Warren, who is charged with murder, sat across the courtroom.Keen Warren is accused of dressing up as a clown and shooting 40-year-old Marlene Warren in the face when she answered the door at her Wellington home in 1990.Investigators say the clown wearing an orange wig, a red nose and painted on white makeup.Keen Warren eventually ended up marrying Warren’s husband. In 2014,DNA testing connected samples of her hair with hair found in an orange wig and blood to the slaying.Due to the complexity of the 29-year-old case, Lubin said under no circumstances will they be ready to start Jan. 31, 2021.Listen to Full Rigor Podcast on Wellington Killer Clown case here.last_img read more

Penrose & Associates Physical Therapy Talks ‘Massage Therapy’

first_imgFacebook4Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Penrose & Associates Physical TherapyMassage therapy is no longer considered a “luxury spa service” but more of an integrated approach to wellness and feeling and moving better. In fact, with today’s social media we are actually becoming more anxious and less connected to community and each other. Massage is a great way to decrease anxiety and provide healing through touch. Massage therapy lowers blood pressure, decreases pain, improves mobility and leads to healthier lives!“The powerful tool that can help you take charge of your health and well-being is Massage Therapy” states Mayo Clinic! In physical therapy I have patients every day that are surprised that many times their pain is actually referred from somewhere else: called trigger points in the muscles. It is very common to have tension headaches from neck muscles that send pain to behind your eyes, your temporal region, your face and jaw. Massage is so helpful with stress, tension, scar tissue after surgeries, and maintaining mobility with arthritis.For those of you that still think massage is for “fluff”: I have many clients that arrive in a boot.  Now picture this: You have a boot on one leg and it makes that leg longer and you are to walk around in it for the next 2-4 weeks or more.  So now your hip, hamstring, knee or back hurts. Many times these patients “try stretches and exercises” but what really helps them get better is a few sessions of deep tissue massage! And as a side note if you ever arrive in my clinic in a boot I tell you about “even up” which is a device to strap to your other shoe so you are “equal” walking around so you don’t even get in that situation.  You see we are all about prevention and wellness; not just treat disease and broken things.I have many clients with arthritis that just don’t move as well and often feel like it takes 1-2 hours to move better in the morning. One of the best things for arthritis is a hot shower, gentle range of motion/stretching, and a maintenance massage program. There are self massage tools that also make it easier for patients to do some on their own. However some of my neck clients really need a massage therapist to work those hard to reach areas.  Keeping your mobility and preventing more loss of motion when you have arthritis is critical to keeping your independence and limiting your pain levels. On the podcast Dr. Jennifer Penrose interviews Hawk Mason, LMT licensed massage therapist who provides massage therapy services at Penrose Physical Therapy. He is a former military veteran with experience leading a team overseas as well as a history of working with disabled adults.We discuss how “massage therapy is a powerful tool that can help you take charge of your health and well-being.” And we discuss the benefits that the literature/research has been able to show as well as what we see with clients.Penrose & Associates Physical Therapy1445 Galaxy Dr.  Suite 301, [email protected] & Associates Physical Therapy websiteListen to the podcast: Itunes, Spotify, Google Play Photo courtesy: Penrose & Associates Physical TherapyWe are running a special on massage therapy right now!
