It’s also a social movement and a testament to the violence experienced by women and girls globally. “The Vagina Monologues,” directed by Jane Sibbett with a guest appearance by Roseanne Barr and 22 women actors, will run Feb. 8 and 9 at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea. “Our cast is comprised of women who not only have talent, but also have the heart to be in this,” said Sibbett. “We also have two 16-year-olds who are participating, and who are on fire for helping. It’s nice to have some young women be a part of this.” Eve Ensler, an author, playwright, professor and activist, wrote the “The Vagina Monologues” book in 1994 after conducting more than 200 interviews with a vast array of women – from urban New York City to remote African villages. The book was so powerful that Ensler adapted it for the stage, where it debuted off-Broadway in 1999 at the Westside Theatre. Since then, it has been translated into 48 languages and performed in more than 140 countries. Yet, despite these worldwide advances, saying the word “vagina” still makes many people uncomfortable 15 years later. Performed … [Read more...]

Domestic Goddess Cooking Show 2003 Flashback

Roseanne & Johnny had just hooked up (about 11 years ago) and he found himself in the reality show she was doing at the time, "The Real Roseanne." It was an hilarious premise: a network (ABC) show about Roseanne trying to get a cable cooking show. It was brilliant and ahead of its time (It was Roseanne, after all!). Producers mentioned a theme song for the cooking show & Johnny asked if he could submit one for consideration. Here's "Somethin's Cookin' - he wrote the words and music, played everything in a jazzy, Bluesy organ format, dashed into an LA studio and came out in less than an hour with this demo. Johnny and Roseanne loved the idea of the late, wonderful Phoebe Snow singing it when it got past the demo stage, but that wasn't to be. But, we thought Roseannearchists and Roseanthropologists might enjoy this little 2-minute slice of history. It's kind of a fun blast from the past that never really saw the light of day - but Roseanne liked it and that's all that mattered to Johnny.   … [Read more...]

 Lecture, Q&A, Meet & Greet and Book Signing with Cathy O'Brien and Mark Phillips   
Trance: Formation of America Access Denied: For Reasons of National Security
 and ROSEANNE BARR
 Actress / Comedienne / Activist On August 3rd, 1977 the 95th US Congress opened hearings into the reported abuses concerning the CIA's TOP SECRET mind control research program code named MK-Ultra. On February 8th, 1988, a top-level MK-Ultra victim, Cathy O'Brien, was covertly rescued from her mind control enslavement by Intelligence insider Mark Phillips. Their seven year pursuit of justice was stopped for reasons of national security. Cathy O'Brien is the only vocal and recovered survivor of the Central Intelligence Agency's MK-Ultra Project Monarch operation. Tracing her path from child pornography and recruitment into the program to serving as a top-level intelligence agent and White House sex slave, her story is a definitive eye-witness account of government corruption that implicates some of the most prominent figures in global politics. Cathy's words strike deep in the heart of the beast and reveal the cruel, murderous world of mind control in all of its ugly facets, exposing many famous people, particularly in the high-flying worlds of politics and music. Cathy's recall is so well articulated that even the … [Read more...]
