(WARNING: Contains intense situations) The haunting story of "The Giver" centers on Jonas (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with The Giver (Jeff Bridges), who is the sole keeper of all the community's memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community's secret past. With this newfound power of knowledge, he realizes that the stakes are higher than imagined - a matter of life and death for himself and those he loves most. At extreme odds, Jonas knows that he must escape their world to protect them all - a challenge that no one has ever succeeded at before. "The Giver" is based on Lois Lowry's beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
What's On Tap: "There were so many songs I couldn't bear to cut them. So, I'll have more songs next week in Part II. But how I got was I was like I often do, listening to some music at the house, and this old song from the Alan Parsons Project came on. 'Can't Take It With You.'' I hadn't heard that song in awhile, and I remember hearing it on the radio in the late 1970s, and when I started researching, I found that you is a very popular pronoun, almost as popular as I. It's a songwriter's go-to word.''
The why on the theme: “I have to give credit to my wife. Scrolling through I-tunes or an Ipod, you an sort through song titles or artists, and she was like, 'You know, there are a lot of songs in here that start with the word Ain’t.' And that's true. I bought an album called 'Aint Misbehavin''' 10 or 15 years ago, and it has at least 10 different version of of "Ain't Misbehavin''' -- from Billie Holiday to Fats Waller. And for me, ain't is a great rock 'n' 'roll word. It wasn’t in the dictionary when I was a boy, and to say it meant you were rebellious to the status quo. And you wanted to make your point emphatically. You know like,'I ain't going to put up with this anymore!' It fits when proper English won’t.
