PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city is asking residents to relax, play, and create once a month.   The monthly Third Thursday street fair is returning in May in a "rejuvenated" way, according to Director of Cultural Development Jennifer Glockner, by organizing the vendors in those three ways.    "Anything that has been going for nine years needs a little bit of a kickstart, a little bit of a rejuvenation," Glockner said on Thursday when the summer series was announced.   The south end of North Street will be the "relax" area and will be aimed for adults. Outdoor seating for restaurants will be brought right into the middle of the road and

I suspect there will be a spate of movies custom made for baby boomers as they proceed into the sexa- and septuagenarian periods of their lives. They will nurture and extoll the virtues of this mixed blessing that's certainly better than the alternative. Call them the Dick and Jane films for golden-agers: i.e. — See Dick have a hip replacement; see Spot sympathize. Hopefully, most will be as entertaining as writer-director Dan Fogelman's "Danny Collins."

Supplying both affirmation and eloquently imparted nostalgia, the film chooses for its

Trying to figure out the renegade ethos that Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and his "team" are trying to exemplify in the frenetically action-packed "Furious 7" leaves me at a loss. Still, I'm going to have a go at it anyway ... but not for diehard fans of this hot-rodding franchise that has skidded miserably off course. Devotees couldn't care less what this O.G. (Old Gangsta) thinks about their choice of entertainment. Nope, this is in the service of auto enthusiasts and anyone who feels being well-rounded means having at least a tangential

Warning! Do not see director Erik Greenberg Anjou's mouthwateringly delicious documentary, "Deli Man," without planning to immediately follow it up with a visit to your favorite Jewish delicatessen. Failing to do so would surely be far more injurious to your health and well-being than the artery-clogging ecstasies you will therein imbibe.

Make it a theme day ... like the film, a glorious celebration of a cultural tradition that came to thrive in the New World. Now faced with changing realities, it is proudly championed by a dying
