When the gunfire began, Wilson said there were people initially in between him and the shooter who stood up, and that he wanted to make sure he didn't hit a member as they were right in front of him. A livestream of the church service shows the gunman getting up from a pew and talking to someone at the back of the church before pulling out a gun and opening fire. … [Read more...] about Texas man who stopped church shooting says he ‘had to take out’ gunman because ‘evil exists’

You’ve done broad musical comedy with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and weirder comedy with Swiss Army Man. Miracle Workers, though, is your most significant comedy role to date. Maybe a possible misconception about you is how interested in comedy you are. Was a hit TV comedy ever a goal in the back of your mind?I grew up watching comedy on TV constantly. This is such an amazing time in American television, it’s such a fragile time in so many ways for independent film, and it’s a very transitional time for all that stuff. So in a way it was lovely to do something with the security of the television network, being like, “No, no, no, they have this money, we’re definitely gonna make it.” Also, I’ve always said, it really doesn’t matter to me; if Simon had phoned me up and said we’re doing a radio play of this book, I’d have been like, “Yeah!

Observe this disposition in the Prodigal Son. He told his father: “I want my share of your estate now, instead of waiting until you die.” (Luke 15:12).

But if he had not received his inheritance but only had hope of receiving it, he would certainly have remained with the father. … [Read more...] about Do you want the present or do you want the future?
Elsewhere, two cast busts of William Morris rest on a rusted metal and glass table. Shredded £10 notes are embedded in the glass, lit from below. A microphone, connected to a sheet of suspended steel, is angled over the mouth of one of the busts. So far, it has failed to pick up any sound, but if you bash the metal sheet, a thunderous roar bursts from under the table. Claydon’s art – like Marten’s – sucks you down a rabbit hole. You go from mobile phone masts disguised as trees to hollow talking heads, pennies from heaven to rafts of homeless tribal artefacts. If things could speak, all you would hear is thunder. … [Read more...] about Hepworth sculpture prize review – a brilliant beginning
30 October-18 February, National Gallery, London. Impressionists in London Thank God, the nation’s gallery of British art has found an excuse to show some French art instead. The artists who would first exhibit as impressionists in 1874 fled to London to escape the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71. While in Britain, they painted views of the city and its suburbs whose vitality and freshness put homegrown Victorian art to shame. To look at Pissarro’s The Avenue, Sydenham (1871) is to breathe a fresh air stuffy British art never let in. Monet would return in later years to stay at the Savoy and paint views from his hotel room that are simply the greatest visions of London in art. … [Read more...] about Dalí, Duchamp, Basquiat and beards: the best art of autumn 2017
