John Malkovich Hands Out Flyers for His Play at Edinburgh Fringe Fest

  8/5/2011 by Ralf Ludemann

Lucian Capellaro

Malkovich-directed play "A Celebration of Harold Pinter" stars Julian Sands.

LONDON -- John Malkovich has been handing out flyers to astonished passers-by at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, according to the Scotsman.

The actor and director was raising the profile of his play, A Celebration of Harold Pinter, starring Julian Sands, who appeared alongside Malkovich in The Killing Fields.

But unlike many a weary leaflet tout, Malkovich, accompanied by Sands, had no problem dishing out flyers to a throng of delighted fans.

Dressed in a light blue patterned jacket, the star - who counts Dangerous Liaisons, Empire of the Sun and Con Air among his screen credits - was hugged and kissed as he posed for pictures.

Asked by the Scotsman what prompted the pair to bring the personal touch to promotion, Malkovich declared: "We've got to reach the punters."

"It's business," said Sands, "We come here with a theatre play and we want people to come and see it.

"Everyone else is handing out flyers and we have to compete."

The play is made up of personal anecdotes and reflections drawn from Sands' work with Pinter, combining his poems and political prose to create an insight in to his literary legacy.

Sands worked with the Nobel Prize-winning playwright shortly before his death in 2008 after he was called in to replace Pinter at a London poetry reading.

"It's a celebration of Harold Pinter's work, not his plays, pretty much the development of his work as a poet and of his life," said Malkovich.

Malkovich has been in productions of Pinter's plays, appearing as Deeley in the BBC production of Old Times.

He said: "I had heard a CD of Jules' reading of the poetry and then he kind of worked that up in to a slightly different form, that became nearly a theatrical piece."

Halcyon Daze Live at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival (Video One)

Halcyon Daze has built a reputation as a great live act, and gained an international fan base that extends across Europe and even over to the U.S.who's sound has morphed and mutated into many different musical styles - spacey psychedelic soundscapes, wahwah and sunshine soaked funk, crunching rock and metal, folk, prog, dance, surf, porn and country music, off the wall improvised jams, and many other things that don't have words - the trio just play whatever comes out of them. The sound has been described as "mesmerizing", "tidal" and "hypnotic" by listeners and it is not unusual to see people breaking into dance or even start screaming at the top of their voice in joy as they pass the band on the street.

Halcyon is a name for a bird of Greek legend which is commonly associated with the kingfisher. The phrase comes from the ancient belief that fourteen days of calm weather were to be expected around the winter solstice - usually 21st or 22nd of December in the Northern Hemisphere. as that was when the halcyon calmed the surface of the sea in order to brood her eggs on a floating nest. The Halcyon days are generally regarded as beginning on the 14th or 15th of December.

Halcyon means calm and tranquil, or 'happy or carefree'. It is rarely used now apart from in the expression halcyon days. The name of the legendary bird was actually alcyon, the 'h' was added in regard to the supposed association with the sea ('hals' in Greek).

The source of the belief in the bird's power to calm the sea originated in a myth recorded by Ovid. The story goes that Aeolus, the ruler of the winds, had a daughter named Alcyone, who was married to Ceyx, the king of Thessaly. Ceyx was drowned at sea and Alcyone threw herself into the sea in grief. Instead of drowning, she was carried to her husband by the wind. The rest of the story is, in a translation of Ovid:

The Gods their shapes to winter-birds translate, But both obnoxious to their former fate. Their conjugal affection still is ty'd, And still the mournful race is multiply'd: They bill, they tread; Alcyone compress'd, Sev'n days sits brooding on her floating nest: A wintry queen: her sire at length is kind, Calms ev'ry storm, and hushes ev'ry wind; Prepares his empire for his daughter's ease, And for his hatching nephews smooths the seas.

The legendary bird is usually identified with the kingfisher. That was also said to nest on the sea and was believed to be able to calm the sea for the seven days before and seven days after the winter solstice.

In 1398, John Trevisa translated Bartholomew de Glanville's De proprietatibus rerum into Middle English:

"In the cliffe of a ponde of occean, Alcion, a see foule, in wynter maketh her neste and layeth egges in vii days and sittyth on brood ... seuen dayes."

In Henry VI, Part I, 1592, Shakespeare refers to halcyon days:

JOAN LA PUCELLE: Assign'd am I to be the English scourge. This night the siege assuredly I'll raise: Expect Saint Martin's summer, halcyon days, Since I have entered into these wars.

Note: Saint Martin's summer is what we now know as an Indian summer.

The kingfisher is associated with other powers relating to the weather. In mediaeval times it was thought that if the dried carcase of a kingfisher was hung up it would always point its beak in the direction of the wind [don't try this at home]. Shakespeare also refers to this in King Lear, 1605:

Bring oil to fire, snow to their colder moods; Renege, affirm, and turn their halcyon beaks With every gale and vary of their masters

Our current use of halcyon days tends to be nostalgic and recalling of the seemingly endless sunny days of youth.


"Halcyon Days" may also refer to: 


Halcyon Daze the Band playing happy funk music 
which now consists of 
guitarist/singer Podge and drummer Jay  and drummer Jay Daragh Kinch on bass 




In 2003, two young lads played together in what was the first incarnation of the band Halcyon Daze. For years, musicians came and went from the group, but the duo of guitarist/singer Podge and drummer Jay was a constant, and formed a solid foundation for Halcyon Daze. As Jay and Podge were both still in school, the band was very on and off, that is until the pair finally realised that music was all they should be doing and quit college to take the band to the next level.

Having already played a lot of the venues on the Dublin gig circuit, they decided it made more sense to do something different to their peers, who seemed to be going around in circles, by playing free gigs on the streets. Instantly the band began to build a real following, and even more so with the addition of Daragh Kinch on bass in October 2010. Since then the group has jammed out on street corners, at college balls, flea markets, parks and even a haunted castle! By playing gigs in England and Scotland, and especially by playing on the streets around Ireland to masses of people, Halcyon Daze has built a reputation as a great live act, and gained an international fanbase that extends accross Europe and even over to the U.S.

In the seven years of the bands existence, Halcyon Daze's sound has morphed and mutated into many different musical styles - spacey psychedelic soundscapes, wahwah and sunshine soaked funk, crunching rock and metal, folk, prog, dance, surf, porn and country music, off the wall improvised jams, and many other things that don't have words - the trio just play whatever comes out of them. The sound has been described as "mesmerizing", "tidal" and "hypnotic" by listeners and it is not unusual to see people breaking into dance or even start screaming at the top of their voice in joy as they pass the band on the street. (No joke)

2011 has been a great year for Halcyon Daze so far, the busy group continue to spread their message on the streets and in venues around Ireland, and in August they will make their first ever festival appearance at the world famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, where earlier in the year they were filmed for a soon to be aired Australian TV show showcasing undiscovered musicians from around the world

There is the Paid Fringe where one pays  up front to see a show.
Then there is the Free Fringe...where the performer does not charge up front, however hopes at the end of the show will receive a donation from the public if they like the performance..
Then there is the amazing variety of Street Theatre being performed all over Edinburgh .. which is also free, but again the performer hopes to receive a donation at the end of the performance in appreciation of the entertainment provided...
The main purpose the performers attend the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is int he hope of some world recognition for their performance and hope it helps to kick start their career. 
There are more and more entertainment industry people attending the Edinburgh Fringe Festival each year to to try and find the next great talent that is ready to take off on the world stage.

Justin Butcher performed well within the standard of a royal variety perfomance in his one man play Scaramouche Jones, and there was no hesitation in awarding Justin Butcher and his director-propducer Guy Masterson a USWeekly News  100 Star Award for Scaramouch Jones....those that were lucky enough to see the one and only performance of  Scaramouch Jones were very fortunate indeed....".....USWeekly News . .   
However, these is another play with Justin Butcher to see at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Fest that is also a show not to be missed called Go To Gaza, Drink The Sea, at Assembly at 2.30 pm being performed from the 6th August till the 30th August, 2009. 
In Go To Gaza, Drink The Sea, Justin Butcher (Scaramouche Jones) and Ahmed Masoud conjure up a multi media Palestinian-British theatre alchemy. ' a harrowing joiurney into a very modern heart of darkness' (Stage') 'Profane witty, poetic, a voice form Gaza Beach itself ' (Tribune)

Scaramouche Jones ....Assemby Goerge Street one and only show....Monday 24th August
 'I went to see Scaramouche Jones. One man and a few props. The energy and accents ranging from his beginning of life, being born to a black mother and an unknown English Man. Justin Butcher is totally brilliant at imitating a brilliant Trinidanian accent and then an extremely posh English Gentlemans accent. From his birth and extremely early learnings of sitting in on his mothers brothel business. She, His mother, the Madame and prostitiute. He the inquisitive child, trying to find which of his mother's customers could be his father. Scaramouche's rabid energy takes him world wide being carried by impressed princes for his beautiful white skin. Scaramouche slaves himself to the princes demands but manages to keep intact a noble and proud spirit. He never finds his father and has so much sympathy to human kind as he amuses children who are about to be shot by nazi officers. As the shot is aimed the childs last breath of life is down to a smile given to them by Scaramouche's clown antics as he digs graves for the dead to be burried in.
Whirling through life from childhood to 51 no one would envy his life for a slave, he has always had to be but a romantic non complaining inquisitve slave, who never complains and ends his life with a bunch of reprobates who like himself have been the subject of slavery but the others who he meets to tell the story of his life to are too drunk on alcohol with their unhappiness of their lives and Scaramouche has avoided this for had he been a slave to self destruction he would never have appreciated all he saw.
 A brilliant piece that lasts an hour and a half. I  could not move for the duration as I followed Justin's breathtaking movements and changes in history form 1900 to 1951.' Sophie Gatacre INL News

Australia cops to get burqa removal powers

New powers will mean cops in one state can demand the removal of burqas and other veils to identify people. More

Australia police able to demand removal of burqas

Police in the Australian state of New South Wales are to be allowed to demand the removal of burqas and other face veils so they can identify people.

The state government approved the move late Monday after the high-profile recent case of a Muslim woman being acquitted when a judge ruled she could not be positively identified because was wearing a burqa.

"I don't care whether a person is wearing a motorcycle helmet, a burqa, niqab, face veil or anything else, the police should be allowed to require those people to make their identification clear," Premier Barry O'Farrell said.

"I have every respect for various religions and beliefs but when it comes to enforcing the law the police should be given adequate powers to make a clear identification."

Anyone who refuses to show their face could be jailed for up to a year or fined Aus$5,500 ($5,900).

The move comes in the wake of a case in November when a woman was sentenced to six months jail for falsely accusing police of forcibly trying to remove her burqa when she was stopped for a traffic offence.

But her sentence was quashed last month when a magistrate said he could not be 100 percent sure it was the same woman who made the complaint because officers were not able to see the face of the accuser.

New South Wales state Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione demanded a clarification of the law and O'Farrell said the new powers should help prevent a recurrence of such issues.

Police previously had the power to ask women to remove face veils during the investigation of serious offences, but not on more routine matters.

The wearing of full-face niqab veils by some Muslim women has become a contentious issue in parts of Europe, where France has banned them in public.

In New Zealand, Prime Minister John Key on Tuesday said Muslim women wearing veils should not face discrimination, after two Saudis were reportedly ordered off buses due to their attire.

The Islamic Council of New South Wales said it accepted O'Farrell's decision.

"If you're asked to do something by a police officer and it's legitimate, then you do it," council chairman Khaled Sukkarieh told ABC radio.

The Muslim Women's Association said it would prefer that a female police officer was on hand when the veils were removed, but if that happened then "nobody could really complain".

The Police Association of New South Wales welcomed the move, saying it was a loophole that had to be closed.

"It will provide clarity and certainty for both the public and for police officers," the union's acting president Pat Gooley said in a statement.

While Queensland state said it would not go down the same path, Western Australia indicated it may follow suit with the state's police minister meeting the police commissioner on the issue Tuesday.

"I'm concerned at the idea of police not having the power to request drivers to remove helmets or other face coverings for ID purposes at the roadside," WA Police Minister Rob Johnson said.

    Barclays 'the Ryanair of British banking'

    Focusing on nothing more than the bottom line means banks are causing huge problems.

    'Ethic-free operations'

    Related links

    Barclays – ‘The Ryanair of British banking’

    Barclays is just one of the banks passing on escalated fees to rude and aggressive collection agencies - it s important to remember you don t have to respond to their telephone approaches.

    My son ran up an unauthorised overdraft a couple of years ago - or, rather, he inadvertently exceeded his agreed overdraft limit by £200.

    The bank slammed some usurious penalty charges on his account and the sum he owed soon multiplied to a figure that he couldn't possibly afford to repay. He tried to talk to the bank about repaying the original overdraft, plus appropriate interest, but it ignored him.

    So instead he waited for the High Court ruling on whether banks should be allowed to charge whatever they like on unauthorised borrowing, hoping it would solve his problems. But it went against him - and many other thousands in the same boat. Meanwhile, the sum had escalated wildly into a four-figure debt.

    His bank is our old friend Barclays, which is fast becoming the Ryanair of British banking when it comes to customer service - although I gather all the banks are at it.

    No co-operation

    Now, I accept that customers, like my son, who run up debts have only themselves to blame - it's all in the small print, blah, blah, blah. But my point is that he wanted to repay the original sum and tried to do so. The bank could have had its money back, if it had co-operated.

    Instead, it has invented a ludicrous debt that it has no hope of seeing repaid.

    More extraordinarily, Barclays sold the debt on to a credit agency some time ago. What is Kafka-esque in its absurdity here is that, in doing so, the bank has made an entirely notional sum of money into a real one. This debt never existed, other than in the fevered imagination of some clerks in the Bank of Lilliput.

    By capitalising it and selling it on, this invented money has become commoditised. And there must be loads of it out there. I fully expect some wünderkind of the financial markets to securitise all this bogus debt and flog it to a US bank to fuel the next sub-prime housing boom.

    Anyway, this means for us that a series of entertaining credit agents periodically phone up. The names of the agencies change weekly, as the debt is passed around the market, like the plate of cocktail sausages that no one wants at a party.

    One spiv told my son that he'd knock 25% off the debt if he paid it off by credit card over the phone immediately. Unsurprisingly, he resisted this temptation, as there would have been no record of the agreement.

    [See alsoMan gets 'unfair' £20,000 credit card debt written off]

    Financial charlatans

    I fear that there may be some borrowers who do deal with these charlatans of the financial world. After all, they threaten that they're about to come round to your house and impound everything from your clothes to your pets in order to settle the debt.

    This is nonsense. The Citizens Advice Bureau advises that under no circumstances should anyone ever respond to a telephone approach from a credit agent. That seems like sound advice.

    But there are other factors at play too. These debt collectors phone and, first of all, ask you to identify who you are and where you live. Excuse me, do they really think we're that dumb? No one has the right to phone and demand information about you.

    These giants of credit control, however, are evidently a few beads short of a full abacus. One phoned the other day. Apparently, they couldn't speak to me unless I identified myself. Fine by me.

    A firm called RMA Partners, for example, told me I had to provide personal information for security purposes. I had to prove that I was who I said I was. I asked him to identify himself and to prove he was from the company he said he was, otherwise I couldn't deal with him "for security reasons".

    There was silence at the other end. It was like a fuse had blown in his head. I wished him well and gently hung up.

    But the problem is that the high street banks allow these agents to operate under the banks' brand names. I have had people on the line claiming that they are from Barclays. They are rude, aggressive and unprofessional.

    Credit is really the issue. Does a bank like Barclays really think that these ethic-free operations do its brand and reputation any credit? But, then again, perhaps brand values and reputation have long since ceased to be a valid currency for our banks.

    Who wants to live forever? Scientist sees aging cured

    LONDON (Reuters) - If Aubrey de Grey's predictions are right, the first person who will live to see their 150th birthday has already been born. And the first person to live for 1,000 years could be less than 20 years younger.

    biomedical gerontologist and chief scientist of a foundation dedicated to longevity research, de Grey reckons that within his own lifetime doctors could have all the tools they need to "cure" aging -- banishing diseases that come with it and extending life indefinitely.

    "I'd say we have a 50/50 chance of bringing aging under what I'd call a decisive level of medical control within the next 25 years or so," de Grey said in an interview before delivering a lecture at Britain's Royal Institution academy of science.

    "And what I mean by decisive is the same sort of medical control that we have over most infectious diseases today."

    De Grey sees a time when people will go to their doctors for regular "maintenance," which by then will include gene therapies, stem cell therapies, immune stimulation and a range of other advanced medical techniques to keep them in good shape.

    De Grey lives near Cambridge University where he won his doctorate in 2000 and is chief scientific officer of the non-profit California-based SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) Foundation, which he co-founded in 2009.

    He describes aging as the lifelong accumulation of various types of molecular and cellular damage throughout the body.

    "The idea is to engage in what you might call preventative geriatrics, where you go in to periodically repair that molecular and cellular damage before it gets to the level of abundance that ispathogenic," he explained.

    CHALLENGE

    Exactly how far and how fast life expectancy will increase in the future is a subject of some debate, but the trend is clear. An average of three months is being added to life expectancy every year at the moment and experts estimate there could be a million centenarians across the world by 2030.

    To date, the world's longest-living person on record lived to 122 and in Japan alone there were more than 44,000 centenarians in 2010.

    Some researchers say, however, that the trend toward longer lifespan may falter due to an epidemic of obesity now spilling over from rich nations into the developing world.

    De Grey's ideas may seem far-fetched, but $20,000 offered in 2005 by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Technology Review journal for any molecular biologist who showed that de Grey's SENS theory was "so wrong that it was unworthy of learned debate" was never won.

    The judges on that panel were prompted into action by an angry put-down of de Grey from a group of nine leading scientists who dismissed his work as "pseudo science."

    They concluded that this label was not fair, arguing instead that SENS "exists in a middle ground of yet-to-be-tested ideas that some people may find intriguing but which others are free to doubt."

    CELL THERAPY

    For some, the prospect of living for hundreds of years is not particularly attractive, either, as it conjures up an image of generations of sick, weak old people and societies increasingly less able to cope.

    But de Grey says that's not what he's working for. Keeping the killer diseases of old age at bay is the primary focus.

    "This is absolutely not a matter of keeping people alive in a bad state of health," he told Reuters. "This is about preventing people from getting sick as a result of old age. The particular therapies that we are working on will only deliver long life as a side effect of delivering better health."

    De Grey divides the damage caused by aging into seven main categories for which repair techniques need to be developed if his prediction for continual maintenance is to come true.

    He notes that while for some categories, the science is still in its earliest stages, there are others where it's already almost there.

    "Stem cell therapy is a big part of this. It's designed to reverse one type of damage, namely the loss of cells when cells die and are not automatically replaced, and it's already in clinical trials (in humans)," he said.

    Stem cell therapies are currently being trialed in people with spinal cord injuries, and de Grey and others say they may one day be used to find ways to repair disease-damaged brains and hearts.

    NO AGE LIMIT

    Cardiovascular diseases are the world's biggest age-related killers and de Grey says there is a long way to go on these though researchers have figured out the path to follow.

    Heart diseases that cause heart failure, heart attacks and strokes are brought about by the accumulation of certain types of what de Grey calls "molecular garbage" -- byproducts of the body's metabolic processes -- which our bodies are not able to break down or excrete.

    "The garbage accumulates inside the cell, and eventually it gets in the way of the cell's workings," he said.

    De Grey is working with colleagues in the United States to identify enzymes in other species that can break down the garbage and clean out the cells -- and the aim then is to devise genetic therapies to give this capability to humans.

    "If we could do that in the case of certain modified forms of cholesterol which accumulate in cells of the artery wall, then we simply would not get cardiovascular disease," he said.

    De Grey is reluctant to make firm predictions about how long people will be able to live in future, but he does say that with each major advance in longevity, scientists will buy more time to make yet more scientific progress.

    In his view, this means that the first person who will live to 1,000 is likely to be born less than 20 years after the first person to reach 150.

    "I call it longevity escape velocity -- where we have a sufficiently comprehensive panel of therapies to enable us to push back the ill health of old age faster than time is passing. And that way, we buy ourselves enough time to develop more therapies further as time goes on," he said.

    "What we can actually predict in terms of how long people will live is absolutely nothing, because it will be determined by the risk of death from other causes like accidents," he said.

    "But there really shouldn't be any limit imposed by how long ago you were born. The whole point of maintenance is that it works indefinitely."
