V Festival 2012 Will Return With New Enthusiasm The Collector: Rated R for pervasive sadistic bloody violence, language and some sexuality/nudity. 85 mins. A real-time game of cat and mouse as handy and ex-con, Arkin, searches for a jeweler"s box containing a valuable gemstone hidden in the home of a family on vacation. Also hidden in the house is another box house containing the latest piece of a collection inventoried in blood. Starring Josh Stewart, Michael Reilly Burke, Andrea Roth. Billy Draws Two"s biggest accomplishment to date musically, according to Billy Horn, is "the fact that I"ve written songs that people enjoy enough to learn the lyrics and sing along with". G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobras: Rated PG-13 for strong sequences of action violence and mayhem throughout. Based on the Hasbro toys, this is the tale of the Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity battling Cobra, a force of evil. Let"s hope this toy-based movie with the modest rating doesn"t disappoint like event wristbands Transformers did. 9/11 saw the Left hit us with a new and completely unfounded ill - "it happened on his watch." Well, we almost had an atomic war with the USSR in 1962. Did anyone say it happened on JFK"s watch? In fact JFK threatened atomic war with them evil Ruskies, yet zero hateful rhetoric. Why? Support Mont Lyons, hailing from Austin, TX, has been playing heavily locally ever since festival wristbands, but I"m not complaining. The groovy, emotional and upbeat sound of this band makes me dance every time. Lead singer Bryan Oliver plays keyboard and sings at his mightiest, while band mates Trevor Smith and Brandon Crews on guitar and bass groove to their music, keeping the crowd hanging on for that next song. Variety Entertainment envisions to create something that will carry the spirit of positive entertainment, social consciousness, and personal success. Variety Entertainment Jade Events will create these means of expression through Funk Fest which signifies quality creativity and uniqueness.The festival"s mission is to sport wristbands celebrate the rich cultural heritage of Old School Music and to boost up the African American pride. Willie Robertson was on hand to help with emceeing duties during the LP Field nightly concerts. Backstage he spoke about the success of the popular reality tv show. "When you set out to do something, you don"t set out to fail, but seeing all the fans and all the people that watch the show, it"s surprising and humbling for sure," according to Robertson. One other thing: the early bird gets the worm. The WMS has a history of selling out, and prices go up considerably on festival day, anyhow-so be sure to get your wristbands early. Currently, festival wristbands are available for only $20, with VIP passes available for $75. The wristbands are good for any venue, all day. Even without knowing the specific lineup of locals, $20 to see all of them means you"ll definitely get your money"s worth.

WHISTLER, British Columbia - Finance leaders of the closest US?allies vented anger over the Trump administration"s metal import tariffs but ended a three-day meeting in Canada on Saturday with no solutions, setting the stage for a heated fight at a G7 summit next week in Quebec.

US?Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin failed to soothe the frustrations of his Group of Seven counterparts over the 25 percent steel and 10 percent aluminum tariffs that Washington imposed on Mexico, Canada and the European Union this week.

"Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors requested that the United States Secretary of the Treasury communicate their unanimous concern and disappointment," the group said in a summary statement written by Canada.

"Ministers and Governors agreed that this discussion should continue at the Leaders" Summit in Charlevoix (Quebec), where decisive action is needed," the statement said.

The topic dominated discussions at the finance meeting in the Canadian mountain resort of Whistler, British Columbia.

French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said the United States has only a few days to avoid sparking a trade war with its allies and it is up to the United States to make a move to de-escalate tensions over tariffs.

Speaking after the meeting, Le Maire said the EU was poised to take counter-measures against the new US?tariffs.

The meeting of top economic policymakers was seen as a prelude to the trade disputes that will dominate the two-day G7 summit that begins on Friday in Quebec.

Mnuchin is regarded as one of the more moderate voices on trade in the Trump administration,

The US?steel and aluminum tariffs were imposed early on Friday after Canada, Mexico and the EU refused to accept quotas in negotiations with US?Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. Japanese metal producers have been paying the tariffs since March 23.
