Led Zeppelin Talks Celebration Day: The Song Remains The Same so to speak, and then some, when the iconic Led Zeppelin took to the stage for a live concert reunion at London's O2 Arena back in December 10th, 2007. And though the legendary rock band's first headline show in twenty-seven years was a sold out smash sensation filling 18,000 seats, most of the 20 million avid Led Heads who bid for tickets in a worldwide lottery, were not as fortunate. But now the concert is in movie theaters and tagged as Led Zeppelin: Celebration Day, with video and audio formats of the film being released next month from Swan Song/Atlantic Records. And to mark this occasion, the entire band hit the Big Apple for a little Celebration Day conversation.


That's What She Said: Actress Anne Heche phoned up Arts Express to talk chick flick revenge, in the goofy girl bonding gripe session comedy, Carrie Preston's That's What She Said. And the movie as a kind of subversive assault on conventional female portrayals in movies; Heche finding sisterhood through this role; and what women tend to say in a male free zone when men are not around. Also, a new and different direction for Heche in the upcoming serious political drama, Nigerian director Jeta Amata's Black November, exposing Western exploitation of Africa for its oil.

NY Film Festival Wrapup Conversation With Michael Musto: Village Voice columnist Michael Musto on the line, discussing the NY Film Festival, and a rather strange encounter with WBAI Radio. Along with delving into the politics and economics of the Festival, highlights that include disasters at sea and air, dead presidents, and possible inter-species romance in Ang Lee's Life Of Pi. Also, Musto's Festival coverage as perhaps just wanting to get out of the house.

Stay tuned for continuing features of Arts Express: Expression In The Arts. Airing On WBAI Radio's Pacifica Network and Affiliate Stations. And if you'd like to Express yourself too, you can write to:
