Burn Burn (album)
Burn Burn is the seventh studio album by Canadian alternative rock band Our Lady Peace, released in North America on July 21, 2009. The album's title is based on a quote by Jack Kerouac from his 1957 novel On the Road; the album, recorded at vocalist Raine Maida's home studio in Los Angeles between 2007 and 2009, was released independent of any major label under the band's longtime management company Coalition Entertainment. Sony Music distributed the album in Canada, WMG's Independent Label Group did so in the United States. Burn Burn is Our Lady Peace's first album not to have involved collaboration with an outside producer, having instead been produced by band vocalist Raine Maida; the album's release marked the longest gap between Our Lady Peace studio albums to date, with their previous album, Healthy in Paranoid Times, having been released in August 2005. At 38 minutes, Burn Burn was the band's shortest album until the release of Somethingness in 2018. Production on Burn Burn began in February 2007, several months before the release of bandleader Raine Maida's solo album The Hunter's Lullaby.
According to Maida, Burn Burn is a "proper rock album"—featuring a return to the raw originality of the band's first album Naveed, though a "little more mature". Maida produced the album himself, noting how he was excited to "not have anybody intrude on sessions"; the band had worked with producer Bob Rock for their two preceding albums, as well as Arnold Lanni for their first four albums. Having been defunct since 2007, the official Our Lady Peace fansite was relaunched on March 11, 2009 in anticipation of Burn Burn; the album's original cover was revealed with the relaunch, on May 1 was changed to portray a darker and more simplistic tone than the original. Burn Burn finished production in early March 2009, the first single "All You Did Was Save My Life" was released on May 25; the album, as well as a deluxe edition entitled Burn Burn Burn, was released in North America on July 21, 2009. Burn Burn debuted at # 3 on the Canadian Albums Chart. Burn Burn received favourable reviews, with PopMatters calling it "their most intimate, immediate album to date".
Allmusic compared the album's sound to latter-day Goo-Goo Dolls and 1980s U2, but noted that the album "remain deficient in hooks and melodies", that the music "simmered" instead of having "boiled with indignation" as it did in the band's previous albums. Billboard praised the seventh track "Never Get Over You" as a "killer ballad", but criticized the album for being too "ballad-heavy" and "one dimensional". Burn Burn doesn't sound like anything Our Lady Peace has done in the past, according to Sputnikmusic, but "maybe, what is so exciting about"; the album contains 10 tracks of the 16 that were composed—and is 38 minutes in length. Lyrics were written by Raine Maida, the first track was co-written by Maida and former The Nixons vocalist Zac Maloy; the official track listing for Burn Burn was released in May 2009, but was altered in early June to replace the track "The Right Stuff" with "The End is Where We Begin". Sequencing of remaining tracks was affected by the change. A Deluxe Edition of the album was released, retitled Burn Burn Burn, with bonus tracks "The Right Stuff" and "Time Bomb" included, as well as a bonus DVD with studio performance footage and music videos for All You Did Was Save My Life and bonus track The Right Stuff.
In April 2009, the music video for Burn Burn's first single, "All You Did Was Save My Life", was filmed in an undisclosed wooded area near Ancaster, Canada. The video features Canadian actress Shenae Grimes, of Degrassi: 90210 fame; the video was leaked prematurely to Canadian viewers through MSN's website on May 22, was unveiled on the May 25 episode of MuchMusic's Much On Demand. The audio track was released to radio stations and iTunes on May 25 in Canada, was released on June 9 in the United States. Burn Burn's second single, "The End is Where We Begin," was released on September 14 in Canada. "Dreamland" was released as the band's third single on May 23, 2010 exactly one year since the release of the first single, "All You Did Was Save My Life". The song reached #6 on Canada's Active Rock charts.

A paper lantern is a lantern made of thin, brightly colored paper. Paper lanterns come in sizes, as well as various methods of construction. In their simplest form, they are a paper bag with a candle placed inside, although more complicated lanterns consist of a collapsible bamboo or metal frame of hoops covered with tough paper. Sometimes, other lanterns can be made out of colored vinyl. Silk lanterns are collapsible with a metal expander and are decorated with Chinese characters and/or designs; the vinyl lanterns are more durable. Paper lanterns do not last long, they soon break, silk lanterns last longer; the gold paper on them will soon fade away to a pale white, the red silk will become a mix between pink and red. There does not appear to be any authoritative publication on the history or origin of the paper lantern available to the lay researcher. In fact, until the publication of an updated scholarship in 2016, the most recent academic quality research on the more fundamental subject of the history of paper was a volume in an edited series on Chinese technology and invention first published in 1949.
This volume, copyrighted the inevitable conclusions derived from recent discoveries that fundamentally changed the inherited story of paper, reordering our understanding of how and why this material came to be a fundamental medium for the transmission and understanding of human society. Paper, it appears, was used for a wide variety of decorative and commercial functions for more than two hundred years before the famous innovator Cai Lun revered as the inventor of paper in Chinese history, popularized its use as a medium for the recording of general information. While writing appears on the oldest known samples of paper, as labeling and prayer, it appears that Cai Lun’s contribution to the story of paper is in generalizing this use for all types of knowledge and records, it is, however, in these original uses of paper as medium for advertisement and prayer that the Chinese paper lantern first found its light. Before books were written on paper, the hopes and dreams of Chinese Buddhists were signified in the light of paper lanterns decorated with the stylized characters which communicated those thoughts to those who could not bear audial witness to their formation.
To these Buddhist monks of the early Han Dynasty one hundred and fifty years before the epoch defining deaths of Caesar Augustus and Jesus of Nazareth, the glow of candlelight within the paper walls of the lantern became a miniature version of the bonfires, lit with the walls of their fortress abbeys on ceremonial occasions, which, in turn, symbolized the light of their pious thoughts, emanating outward to illuminate the ignorance of the unenlightened world. As they studied and recorded and analyzed the world around them, protected from the harsh opinions of the wild world by the walls of their fortresses, so did the candle consume its fuel, sheltered from the winds while projecting its light to the world beyond. Though the legend became confused and convoluted as Chinese historians came to settle on a narrative of Cai Lun as inventor and not innovator of paper technology, it appears that an early Emperor of the Eastern Han Dynasty celebrated the establishment of a new era in his reign, or simply the return of an embassy to India, by adopting the sacred symbol of the Buddhist lantern for his secular celebration, commanding that the lanterns be burned across the capital city, Luoyang.
When the necessity of keeping faith with the representation of Cai Lun as inventor can be ignored, this Emperor is said to have been Ming-ti, who welcomed two Buddhist monks to his court alongside his returning ambassadors in the year 67 of the Common Era. Others, attribute this adaptation to the earlier, unified Han Dynasty Emperor Wu, known for establishing these new eras in his reign every few years and sent embassies to India, though history, Chinese or Academic, does not record the return of these efforts, except in the possibility of connection to the legend of secular lantern lighting. Over the two thousand years that have transpired since, the lighting of paper lanterns has become a traditional part of Chinese celebrations of all kinds and has been passed to neighboring cultures from Japan to Southeast Asia. In many places across Eastern Asia, this tradition is most developed in a festival devoted to the launch of paper lanterns into the air or upon a body of water, with their original prayerful or aspirational purpose, that of carrying painted prayers or, more as purely symbolic manifestations of those wishes.
More however, paper lanterns serve their other early purpose, that of advertisement as the earliest form of lighted signage. While this purpose followed the adaptation from religious to secular celebration, it is today, the most common and visible use of these beautiful and graceful objects in everyday life around the world in cities in Eastern Asia and in ‘Chinatown’ neighborhoods worldwide, where they are found as part of the decorative marketing of restaurants and shops of every sort. Associated with festivals, paper lanterns are common in China, Japan, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Malaysia and in Chinatowns, where they are hung outside of businesses to attract attention. In Japan the traditional styles include bonbori and chōc
Paper Moon (film)
Paper Moon is a 1973 American comedy-drama film directed by Peter Bogdanovich and released by Paramount Pictures. Screenwriter Alvin Sargent adapted the script from the novel Addie Pray by Joe David Brown; the film, shot in black-and-white, is set in Missouri during the Great Depression. It stars the real-life father and daughter pairing of Ryan and Tatum O'Neal as protagonists Moze and Addie. Tatum O'Neal received overwhelmingly high praise for her performance as Addie, earning her the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, making her the youngest competitive winner in the history of the Academy Awards. Con man Moses Pray meets nine-year-old Addie Loggins at Addie's mother's graveside service, where the neighbors suspect he is Addie's father, he agrees to deliver the orphaned Addie to her aunt's home in St. Joseph, Missouri. At a local grain mill, Moses convinces the brother of the man who accidentally killed Addie's mother to give him two hundred dollars for the newly orphaned Addie. Addie overhears this conversation and, after Moses spends nearly half the money fixing his used Model A convertible demands the money, whereupon Moses agrees to travel with Addie until he has raised two hundred dollars to give to her.
Thereafter Moses visits widowed women, pretending to have sold an expensive, personalized Bible to the deceased husband, the widows pay him for the bibles inscribed with their names. Addie joins the scam, pretending she is his daughter, exhibits a talent for confidence tricks, cheating a cotton candy vendor out of a large sum of money; as time passes and Addie become a formidable team. One night, Addie and "Moze" stop at a local carnival, where Moze becomes enthralled with an "exotic dancer" named Miss Trixie Delight, leaves Addie at a photo booth to have her photograph taken alone. Much to Addie's chagrin, Moze invites "Miss Trixie"—and her downtrodden African American maid Imogene to join him and Addie. Addie soon becomes jealous of Trixie; when Addie subsequently discovers that Moze has spent their money on a brand-new car to impress Miss Trixie and Imogene devise a plan. They convince a clerk at the hotel the group are staying at to pay a visit to Trixie, Addie sends Moze up to Trixie's room where he discovers the clerk and Trixie having sex, whereupon Moze leaves Miss Trixie and Imogene behind, while Addie leaves Imogene enough money to pay for her own passage home.
At a hotel in Kansas Moze finds a bootlegger's store of whiskey, steals some of it, sells it back to the bootlegger. The bootlegger's brother is the sheriff, who arrests Moze and Addie. Addie hides their money, steals back the key to their car, the pair escape. To elude pursuit, they trade their new car for a decrepit Model T farm truck after Moze beats a hillbilly in a "wrasslin' match"; the sheriff finds them in Missouri and, unable to arrest Moze, he and his cohorts beat and rob him. Humiliated, Moze drops Addie at her aunt's house in St Joseph but Addie, rejoins him on the road; when he refuses her company she reminds him that he still owes her two hundred dollars and reveals that his truck has rolled away without him. They catch the truck, whereupon they leave together; the film project was associated with John Huston and was to star Paul Newman and his daughter, Nell Potts. However, when Huston left the project, the Newmans became dissociated from the film as well. Peter Bogdanovich had just completed What's Up, Doc? and was looking for another project when his ex-wife and frequent collaborator Polly Platt recommended filming Joe David Brown's script for the novel Addie Pray.
Bogdanovich, a fan of period films, having two young daughters of his own, found himself drawn to the story, selected it as his next film. At the suggestion of Polly Platt, Bogdanovich approached eight-year-old Tatum O'Neal to audition for the role although she had no acting experience. Bogdanovich had worked with Tatum's father Ryan O'Neal on What's Up, Doc?, decided to cast them as the leads. Various changes were made in adapting the book to film. Addie's age was reduced from twelve to nine to accommodate young Tatum, several events from the book were combined for pacing issues, the last third of the novel, when Moses and Addie graduate to the big leagues as con artists after going into partnership with a fake millionaire, was dropped; the location was changed from the rural south of the novel – Alabama – to midwestern Kansas and Missouri. The film was shot in the small towns of Kansas. Various shooting locations include the Midland Hotel at Kansas; the car Moses is driving when he agrees to take Addie home is a 1930 Ford Model A convertible.
The whiskey being sold by the bootlegger shown toward the end of the film is Three Feathers blended whiskey, a label introduced by Oldtyme Distilling Corp. in 1882 and still produced up to the 1980s. The fruit-flavored soda drunk by Addie is from Nehi Soda, by a company founded as Chero-Cola in 1910, in 1925 renamed Nehi Corporation, which became Royal Crown Company Dr Pepper/Seven Up Dr Pepper Snapple Group. Peter Bogdanovich decided to change the name of the film from Addie Pray. While selecting music for the film, he heard the song. Seeking advice f
Paper Moon (album)
Paper Moon was recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet at Coast Recorders in San Francisco, California. The record was released in September 1981 by a subsidiary of Concord Records, it was engineered by Ron Davis and Phil Edwards. On this recording, pianist Dave Brubeck is accompanied by his son Chris Brubeck on the bass and bass trombone, with Jerry Bergonzi on tenor sax and Randy Jones on the drums. Paper Moon is Brubeck's third of three Concord recordings featuring this permutation of the Dave Brubeck Quartet. Stylistically, Paper Moon is typical Dave Brubeck cool jazz, varying only from past Brubeck recordings; the tracks on this album are less hurried than those on Brubeck's best known recording. Paper Moon is a accessible recording; the title track, "It’s Only a Paper Moon", begins with Dave Brubeck's piano, backed by the drummer's fast but light rhythm and the bassist's syncopated plucking. About forty seconds into the track the piano switches to stride style, at 0:52 the saxophone enters on the melody as Dave Brubeck comps.
At 2:38 Dave Brubeck begins his piano solo using block chords. His solo continues until 3:31 when now on bass trombone, takes over, his improvisation dips into the lowest registers. His solo ends the piece with a repeat of the chorus. "Music, Please!" – 8:58 "I Hear a Rhapsody" – 6:06 "Symphony" – 5:10 "I Thought About You" – 5:21 "It's Only a Paper Moon" – 5:34 "Long Ago" – 8:03 "St. Louis Blues" – 3:10 Dave Brubeck – piano Jerry Bergonzi – tenor saxophone Chris Brubeck – bass, bass trombone Randy Jones – drums
