"PA( E 10 POST-GAZE'n'E, JULY 29, 2016 e ooooooooooeooooooooooooeeeoooooeoo RUBEN BLADES - THE RETURN OF RUBEN BLADES (Blu-ray) MVDvisual As a documentary filminaker seeking to capture the life and career of Rub6n Blades on film, Robert Mugge saw his own biggest challenge as simply keeping up with this seemingly tireless potential subject. Fi- nally, Blades and Mugge came to terms, after which Mugge and his crew spent the spring and summer of 1985 shoot- ing the following: a concert by Blades and his band Seis del Solar at the New York City club S.O.B.'s (Sounds of Brazil); an interview with Blades at his New York City apartment; a conversation between Blades and author Pete Hamill in a New York City park; Blades' graduation from Harvard Law School (including conversations with his mother and his dean); a Spanish-language recording session in Los Angeles featuring Blades and guest vocalist Linda Ronstadt; a joint interview with Blades and Ronstadt (who was then contemplating recording her own albums of Mexican songs she learned at home as a child); and a trip by Blades to his hometown of Panama City. In Panama, Blades was filmed on the balcony of his new hlgh-rise apartment over- seeing his city's changing land- scape, in front of the bank where he once worked as an attorney, joining his father for a visit to the neighborhood where he grew up, in a court- yard discussing his intention to run for president of Panama one day, and walking along the Panama Canal discussing the sometimes tense relations between his native and adopted countries. VIRAL IDVD) Anchor Bay Ent. From the producer of The Visit, The Purge, and Insidi- ous, and from the director of Nerve, comes the deadly thriller Viral.

THE KNICK: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON (Blu-ray} HBO Home Ent. In the second season, The Knick faces an upheaval, as Dr. John Thackery's absence (due to his hospitalization for cocaine addiction}, a dearth of affluent patients, and financial missteps have led to the board's decision to shutter the hospital and move to a new building uptown.

Whether it's a path toward justice, freedom, love or just plain survival, noth- ing comes easy.

MY GOLDEN DAYS (Bla-ray) Magnolia Home Ent. My Golden Days is the story of Paul D6dalus, an anthropologist preparing to leave Tajikistan. Reflecting on his life, he has a series of flashbacks that unfold in three episodes. The first includes his childhood in Rou- baix, France.

Finally, he remembers university life and returning home to party with his sister and shifting circle of friends. Most of all, he remem- bers Ester, the love of his life. The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani CURTATONE STANDS WITH "BLACK LIVES MATTER" BANNER Somerville Mayor Joe Curta- tone has rejected a request by the police union in Somerville to remove the "Black Lives Matter" banner on City Hall and replace it with an "All Lives Matter" ban- ner. Curtatone said he would not take down the banner over the entrance to City Hall. WRKO radio host Jeff Kuh- ner gave him a nickname a while ago, and it fits. When it comes to this offensive banner that many see as anti-police, the mayor has lived up to the Kuhnerman's tag "Mayor Joe Curtaphony.~ HAMPTON BF.~CH CHILDRENS FESTIVAL The Children's Festival is coming to Hampton Beach, NH from August 15~ to 19% For more information, go to: www. WALSH WARTS MORE AFFORDABLE UNITS AT THE SEAPORT Mayor Marty Walsh is push- ing for more affordable units down at the Seaport. He actu- ally said we may have missed the boat because it is mostly high-end development without affordable units. Walsh stated that the city is even looking at the idea of constructing a public school down there. Most of the folks moving there have plenty of money and few, if any, kids. These folks have dogs; they need dog parks, that's it. As far as bringing in families with kids, that sounds like a pipe- dream to me. FAMILY FUN DAY TENEAN BEACH SATURDAY, AUGUST 6"~ The second annual family fun beach day is scheduled at Dorchester's Tenean Beach, located on Conley Street, on Saturday, August 6% For the second year in a row, the Port Norfolk Civic Association was granted funds from Save the Harbor/Save the Bay in ad- dition to support from elected officials who all help to make this day possible. The fun starts at 11:00 am and runs until 4:00 pm. For more information, contact Carla at BEST PRICE IN TOWN FOR GAS The best place in Boston for pump prices is located in Roslindale on Washington Street at ALFA Fuel where the price is only $2.05 per gallon. DOES THIS MAKE SENSE TO YOU? Driving the other day, I no- riced gas pump prices all over the place. I have seen highs and lows, but not usually at the same intersection. Over in Quincy, near the Quincy Police Headquarters, I noticed Gulf was selling gas for $2.49 a gallon while right across the road, Super Stop & Shop had a nicer $2.09 price tag. Then in Dorchester near Mother Teresa Church (a.k.a. St. Margaret's}, I saw Gulf selling for $2.39 while Speedway across the street was down to $2.15. Why, I ask, at either intersection would drivers have a hard time choos- ing what goes in their car? Also, I ask, what kind of special gas should be either 40 to 24 cents cheaper at one gas station compared to the another right next to it? Just thinking out loud. Happy Anniversary Still Here..
