On the way to visit an old college professor, the two clean-cut kids, Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and his fiancee Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon), run into tire trouble and seek help at the site of a light down the road. It’s coming from “the Frankenstein place,” where Dr. Frank N Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite from the planet Transexual in the galaxy of Transylvania, is in the midst of one of his maniacal experiments — he’s created the perfect man, a rippling piece of beefcake christened Rocky Horror (Peter Hinwood), and intends to put him to good use (his own) in his kinky household retinue, presided over by a hunchback henchman named Riff Raff (Richard O’Brien) and his incestuous sister Magenta (Patricia Quinn), and assisted by a tap dancing groupie-in-residence, Columbia (Little Nell).

Wine Pairing: Ampelos Viognier (2012)
Crashing waves, a stroll in soft warm spring rain, a picnic in a sun filled meadow deep in the forest – a perfect day! This is our golden girl – viognier. ‘Phi’ reveals a symphony of tropical notes to the senses – pops of peach pie, apricot and lime sorbet travel along the slate gravel path of the palate. A cool summer evolved into a warm fall and became a dream come true for the bright acidity and no oak, fruit driven flavors of this classic wine. [Read more…]

In 1975 and 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings undertook the epic Wings over the World tour, the largest scale tour they would ever undertake as a band. From this tour came both the legendary “Wings over America” triple live album and the concert film “Rockshow”. Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, “Rockshow”, originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc.  Now for the first time the complete full length concert is being made available fully restored from the original 35mm film and with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time.
