CONSCIOUSNESS DOCUMENTARY PROJECT ~ THE DEEPER YOU GO

"Milwaukee Filmmakers Interview the Great Minds"

Milwaukee filmmakers Lora Nigro and Kevin Rutkowski posted a work in progress on YouTube recently. Their uncompleted documentary on the science and philosophy of consciousness,The Deeper You Go, already received thousands of hits—an example of how widely dispersed people with arcane interests can find each other online ... Most of the film was shot guerilla style earlier this year in Tucson at conference sponsored by the University of Arizona’s Center for Consciousness Study. The speakers at the conference interviewed for the documentary are tops in their field, the “rock stars of consciousness” as Nigro describes them ...

Fearless Cynic

Laughing with Bill Maher

Controversial comedian Bill Maher, whose digs can strike the funny bone while hitting a nerve, wants to stimulate critical thinking through the gateway of humor. The fearless if not ruthless cynic, host of HBO’s Emmy-nominated series “Real Time,” will perform at the Riverside Theater on Thursday, July 24. We spoke with Maher by phone in early June, discussing politics, religion and the war on drugs. We began by probing about the relevance of his profession. “Too many people, especially the younger generation, don’t get their news from real sources but comedy shows, which is a little like reading the CliffsNotes instead of the actual book,” he says ...

Global Cuisine, Local Sources

La Merenda serves small-plate dishes

with an international flair

A Walker’s Point hot spot since 2007, La Merenda Bar & International Tapas was a pathfinder when it opened, marking the Milwaukee neighborhood’s emergence as the new foodie destination. The renovated woodworking shop has a relaxed basement appeal with concrete walls and glass-blocked windows warmed by butternut and pumpkin hues and recently added textured fabric drapery to dampen the sound level. The welcoming bar of hand-poured concrete, eclectic lamps, and a haphazard mix of wooden furniture, various mismatched mirrors and pictures create the kickback atmosphere. In tune with the social nature of the tapas experience, the astute service staff seems less preoccupied with turning tables than with preparing a haven for urbanites with European sensibilities to hang out with friends while savoring a cornucopia of tastes ...

LOBBYING THROUGH MUSIC

U2 wants to change the world

Just when no one expected such idealism, compassion or humanitarianism to thrive in the world of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, there was Bono, Live Aid, the Jubilee 2000 coalition and the AIDS initiative. For three decades, super-band U2 has turned hits into lobbies for legislation, its lyrics suffused with undeniable spiritual undertones into a tool for world change. This out of the depths of the music business (whose soul-squelching mission revolves around units sold and artist exploitation) is a little like turning water into wine. For a multitude of U2 fans who faithfully buy CDs and concert tickets, its charismatic leader, Bono, is more than just another rock hero. The baby-boomer/Gen-X-now-iPod generation icon will return to Milwaukee on Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Bradley Center ...
