Dishing the ‘Dirt’ The scandalous, tell-all rock bio should be a staple of any rock fan’s diet. Even if it’s an occasional treat, there’s nothing more satisfying than sinking your teeth into a sordid account of car crashes, drugs, infighting, touring, groupies and other sundries of rock life. Of course, if the subject is Sting, you probably won’t find much of the above. Conversely, if the topic is Mötley Crüe — whose recently released autobiography, “The Dirt,” made a surprising debut at No. 8 on The New York Times bestsellers list — you’ll get all that plus a bag of chips.

Dan Bucatinsky brings ‘All Over the Guy’ to the KC Gay and Lesbian Film Festival
June 21, 2001
By Loey Lockerby When Dan Bucatinsky decided to adapt his play “I Know You Are, But What Am I?” for the screen, he was faced with the dilemma of how to make it stand out in the crowd. It is, after all, a romantic comedy, and there are dozens of those produced every year. So he made a fairly radical decision: He changed the gender of the female lead and made the story about a gay couple. The result, “All Over the Guy,” shows just how universal the ups and downs of relationships really are.

Curiously, despite the skin-filled moments and some other attempts at edginess (it was shot on digital video), the flick ends up being well behind the curve.

The Mag: Movie Spread
June 21, 2001
The Animal Jokester Rob Schneider takes one of the dopiest ideas of the year — a man is scientifically saved from a near-fatal accident via being pieced together with different animal parts — and makes an occasionally funny, if brief (83 minutes), comedy. Comfortable at playing a terrific loser (his character’s inability to avoid wetting himself during the police obstacle course keeps him stuck as an evidence file clerk), Schneider’s utter lack of cool makes him someone the audience does root for. Although he tones down the naughty bits from his previous flick, the better-than-you-might-expect “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” Schneider still wallows in much of the same bad-taste humor, including numerous gags about bestiality, heightened smell and urination. “The Animal” is paced reasonably well, even while the central premise becomes tiring compared to the sub plots that crop up involving Schneider’s friends and love interest (played by ex-“Survivor” Colleen Haskell). The movie does present one of the cinema’s most amusing car wreck sequences — which is actually quite fitting for this funny, car wreck of a movie. (PG-13) — JN

June 21 is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Almost 15 hours of daylight will herald the first day of summer in the northern hemisphere, which, at this time of year, has its greatest degree of tilt toward the sun. Days will get progressively shorter until Dec. 21, the winter solstice and shortest day of the year. __________________________ Crime: Former Southwest teacher arrested A former Southwest Junior High School teacher was booked Tuesday into the Douglas County Jail on a charge of taking indecent liberties with a child. The 32-year-old Lawrence man resigned last month after Lawrence Police began investigating him for allegedly having an inappropriate affair with a ninth-grade female student. The suspect was released from jail on a $10,000 recognizance bond. A preliminary hearing has been set for 3 p.m. July 3 in Douglas County District Court. The Journal-World generally does not identify suspects in sex crimes unless they are convicted. __________________________ Gasoline prices: Pump patrol at work The Journal-World has found a Lawrence-area gasoline price as low as $1.319 a gallon at the Site station at 23rd Street and Haskell Avenue.

By Diane Frook Lawrence is a college town pizza is everywhere, right? Right. Unless you want regular pizza not single-serving, gourmet concoctions in a sit-down, family-friendly, affordable environment. Papa Keno’s is great, but it’s very college-oriented. Same with Rudy’s. Papa Murphy’s is take-out only, Pizza Hut screams “fast food.” I quite like Uno’s even if it is a chain but it’s located way on the south side of town, and it’s slightly upscale for the young family demographic.

SEVEN QUESTIONS with Uncle Kracker
June 21, 2001

As Kid Rock’s longtime turntablist and music collaborator, Shafer spent his early years in the business in Rock’s large-looming shadow. The association produced multi-platinum efforts like 1999’s “Devil Without a Cause” and gave Shafer who went by the stage moniker Kracker until lawyers for the alt-rock band Cracker forced him to change it a career of his own, though not completely overnight.
Side Notes: Dishing the dirt
June 21, 2001
By Geoff Harkness The scandalous, tell-all rock bio should be a staple of any rock fan’s diet. Even if it’s an occasional treat, there’s nothing more satisfying than sinking your teeth into a sordid account of car crashes, drugs, infighting, touring, groupies and other sundries of rock life. Of course, if the subject is Paul Simon, you probably won’t find much of the above. Conversely, if the topic is My Crhose recently published autobiography, “The Dirt,” made a surprising debut at No. 8 on The New York Times bestsellers list you’ll get all that plus a bag of chips.
