G-Blest

Central Christian Church, Sept. 30

With passionate words of inspiration and testimony, local Christian rapper G-Blest (real name Gary Ward) transcended the often negative stereotypes associated with rap. He performed in celebration of his new album, I Am Blest, while the Sean Killingsworth Band provided a rock-based foundation. Some people put their hands in air, while others formed a small mosh pit as G-Blest delivered songs with fire and passion. The large crowd was then provided with glow sticks, turning the church into a swaying rainbow. G-Blest performed solo and with other rappers, and mixed rock with his rapping. There was no profanity—all in a testament to his spiritual journey. By the end of the night, G-Blest bowed down in front of the crowd and gave thanks to God. He looked like a man who was truly blessed.

Movie Review

50/50

By Tribune Media Services

Although it’s a cancer film, the tender and funny 50/50 addresses its subject with a refreshing lack of melodrama, making it transcend the usual. Based on the true story of Will Reiser, a comedy writer and friend of Seth Rogen’s, the movie follows Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who gets diagnosed with the C-word. The film follows how Adam and his best friend, among others, get on with life. “Help me help you get laid!” Rogen’s character says. The grace notes make this film memorable.
