Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World tells the story of the wah wah effect pedal, from its invention in 1966 to the present day. Musicians, engineers, and historians discuss the impact of the pedal on popular music and demonstrate the various ways it has been used, as well as how its evolution has improved the ability of artists to express themselves musically. The film features interviews with Brad Plunkett, the inventor of the pedal, plus many other musical luminaries such as Ben Fong-Torres, Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Buddy Guy, Art Thompson, Eddie Kramer, Kirk Hammett, Dweezil Zappa, and Jim Dunlop. These professionals explain how a musical novelty transcended convention and has become timelessly woven into the fabric of modern pop-culture.
In a crowded Philadelphia garage, Adam Cramer revives vintage motorcycles and the American tradition of grease-stained self-reliance.

James Gulliver Hancock feels horrible when he's not drawing. He grew up in Australia, his mother works in a prison, and his dad is decended from prisoners. Unfortunately he didn't have a kangaroo for a pet, and has never nursed a koala like a baby. He's travelled the world and panics that he may not be able to draw everything he's seen, at least once. Hide your Sharpies as they mysteriously disappear when he's around.

Brooke Taylor: Senator Reid is misinformed on his wish to outlaw brothels.
As many of you may, or may not be aware, Nevada Senator Harry Reid has declared it’s time to outlaw prostitution in our state. However, what Senator Reid failed to acknowledge during his ‘Crusade against Courtesans’ is that prostitution is already outlawed in this state. Well, at least illegal prostitution has been. He also failed to acknowledge the fact that even though prostitution is outlawed in the larger counties of Nevada, it STILL exists in them. No, Las Vegas does not have brothels. But what they do have is tens of thousands of ladies, some against their will, some underage & far from home, working the streets & casinos day in, day out...in search of their next client. They also have thousands of pimps beating those girls, stealing their money, drugging them to keep them submissive. And if that wasn’t enough, Vegas has hundreds of women who have been arrested that have tested POSITIVE for HIV; that’s hundreds of women working the streets of our country spreading this disease. I guess what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas after all.
Now take a look at what Senator Reid wants to outlaw: LPIN, Legalized Prostitution in Nevada. Our local Cathouses, rural Nevada’s historical brothels. For over 40 years, Senator Reid has been in office without any complaints regarding LPIN. Why would he complain? Unlike Las Vegas, LPIN has a 100% clean record regarding HIV, no lady in a brothel has been trafficked to work there, everyone’s of legal age & consent, we are a regulated & tax paying business. What could possibly be so wrong with this?! I’ll tell you what is wrong...NOTHING. And Senator Reid himself, for many years has shared this opinion with me, which is why I (regretfully) voted for him.
Now suddenly, Reid feels LPIN is what is holding Nevada back. Yes, that’s right; whorehouses are the reason new businesses are not coming to Nevada. Not the lack of educated workers or infrastructure as the Northern Nevada Development Authority has pointed out. No, it’s us, with our high heels and shiny lip-gloss, doing Nevada in, one client at a time. Come on now, how much damage can I really do lying on my back?
So why is Senator Reid going after brothels now? He knows exactly what we know, sex sells.
He knew once he pointed the finger at us, that’s where the attention would go. However, the Senator should know, when you point one finger away from you, there are three more pointing back at ya. Plain & simple, Senator Reid did not have the courage to face his constituents regarding his impotencies in office. Reid did not want to address the fact he has no real solution for this state having the highest unemployment rate in the country. Unless you consider taking a viable business away from your community for a hypothetical one a solution. I, myself, certainly don’t find that to be “innovative”, as he suggested it was. And while Senator Reid spoke on the poor state of education in Nevada, he never clearly defined his solution to said issue. I would think if the Development Authority were citing “uneducated workers” as the number one reason businesses aren’t moving to this state, then education would’ve been where he focused his problem-solving skills. For example, where’s the solution to our Universities going bankrupt? But what would I know; I’m just a prostitute. It’s not like I’m a voter...oh wait, yes, I am.
And I must ask, if Senator Reid wanted to keep the brothels away from the children of Nevada, why did he choose the day in which children are invited to assembly to have, what he called, an “adult conversation”? So who’s really putting brothels in the face of Nevada’s children?
And unfortunately, while Reid may have deflected the true problems in this state, they still exist. Except now, he’s made us his problem. I will lie down for a lot of things, but Senator Reid is not one of them. I will not sit back and allow my elected Senator to make a criminal out of me.
