People have been going crazy in an i ticipation for his new novel, “In the t Mouth of Madness.” But the author disappears just be i fore he is expected to deliver his : latest manuscript. Hispublisher, Jack t son Harglow (Charlton Heston), hires John Trent (Sam Neill) to investi 5 gate. But after Trent and Cane’s editor, i Linda Styles (Julie Carmen), travel to Hobb’s End, they find themselves trapped in the pages of Cane’s newest novel and face the horrors of Cane’s warped imagination. The two are unsure if they have found some new reality, or if Cane has been modifying their reality with his writing. Trent has no control over what will happen to him and realizes it. His learned helplessness passes apathy on to the audience and the movie decrescendos into mediocrity. “In the Mouth of Madness” Rating: R Grade: B Stars: Sam Neill, Julie Carmen, Charlton Heston Director: John Carpenter Five Words: Mad mouth no jaw dropper. McClain Continued from Page 9 about a month and a half.” This sort of creative spurt is not unusual to McClain, who said her method of writing tends to be a bit erratic and difficult to explain. “I don’t know what happens to me,” she said. “Usually, I’ll just be doing something like driving or walk ing or doing housework and I’ll get an idea.” Ideas, however, don’t always come together. Overworked ideas tend to self-destruct, she said. As a result, most of her songs tend to be some what spontaneous and unpolished. “If I try too hard,” she said, “then it just seems to mess it all up.” The songs she does complete tend to fall into the category of sentimen tal folk music. Songs about child hood, love and faith are common on McClain’s latest album. “I’m trying to say something posi tive with the songs, and not just (com I plain) about stuff, which I think I ' used to do a lot of,” she said. “I think I was a lot more mixed up about things when I was younger. Things are a little clearer now, but not totally clear.” Lots of things have changed throughout McClain’s life in music. She first picked up a guitar at the age of 12. “I heard this song called ‘Suzanne’ by Leonard Cohen,” she said, “and I still don’t know what it means, but I really wanted to sing it. Of course, I needed a guitar, too.” Her stage career began at age 15 in the Gaslight, a now-defunct melo drama theater. “It had an open mike night every Monday, and there were just tons of great folk musicians hanging around down there,” she said. “It was amazing. There were so many good musicians in Lincoln at the time. I was really young and really green, and I can’t even remem ber being up on stage half the time because I was so nervous.” Her first real musical job was at the Freedom Lounge, a place McClain described as “kind ofseedy.” “It was really dark and it had this long, skinny bar,” she said. “I got paid $125 to perform six nights for four hours each night. I thought it was a fortune.” Since then, McClain has spent time on several stages at local venues in both Lincoln and Omaha. Becoming a major success is a prospect she is still a bit wary about. “If I could do folk music as a full time job, I would,” McClain said. “But it would have to be really low key, because I would have to be able to see my kids all the time. I don’t know how realistic that is.” “If it happens, it happens. I’ll just keep on doing what I’ve been doing ” Getting a band together is another goal McClain hopes to achieve. But that aspiration may have to wait, too. “At my age, I have kids and all these other responsibilities, and I meet other musicians who have the same restraints on their time,” she said. “It’s kind of hard to find the time to get together.” Challenges like these are things to which McClain seems to be accus tomed. Whether it’s finding a band or a hamster, she takes it all in stride. “I have to relax,” she said. “It’s hard to write when you don’t feel completely in tune with yourself.” Video Continued from Page 9 over a counseling group formerly led by his recently-murdered friend and colleague, and is drawn into an erotic web of danger and mystery ... as usual. “The Color ofNight” lacked merit, ( plot and most everything else. Only , see this piece of garbage if you’re curious to see Willis’ HP smokie (in 1 the unrated version). “Blankman” (PG-13) — Oof, another poor piece of cinema that only takes up space, this one courtesy of Damon Wayans. - Wayans plays a geek with an un canny ability to make gadgets out of the stuff around him. He has always fantasized about becoming a super hero, so he dons a pair of boxer shorts and a shower curtain and becomes Blankman. . Braid your pets’ hair rather than watch this movie. PICK-OF-THE-WEEK — Sweeping music, great costumes, and overall, a feeling that you would be seeing its star again. Remember when some muscle bound guy named Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in “Conan the Barbarian?” It was a Marvel Comics hero on the big-screen, headed for revenge against Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones), the snake-god that killed his parents and enslaved Conan. The film is a wee bit long, and is not for the weak-stomached (lotsa blood, giant bleeding snakes, etc.), but is an incredible film nonetheless. The real question here is: does Ah nold say “I’ll be back” at any time during the film? _______ 178 Pregnancy 180 Printing & Copying L- 182 Recycling 02 Appliances 183 Religious 05 Bicycles 185 Rentals 10 Books 188 Tanning 13 Clothing 190 Tattooing 16 Computers 193 Travel 20 Furniture 195 Typing & Resumes 30 Jewelry -— - 40 Misc.
