All good things must come to an end, they say, but that doesnt make it
any easier. The Weekender/Mountaingrown Original Music Series is one
of those good things. It was good for local musicians, it was good for music
fans, and it was good for The Weekender and 102.3 The Mountain, so why
stop after 10 years? Read our cover story this week to nd out. Whatever
the reasons, its not easy for local bands to be heard on such a large scale,
and its not easy to reach the audiences that will appreciate them. Alan K.
Stout has worked for decades to close this gap, and while he will continue
to do so with his writing and his weekly Music on the Menu show on
The Mountain, its sad to see this monthly tradition come to a close.
When I chatted with Alan, however, he wasnt sad. He remembered his
time with this series and our publication fondly, and he wants to go out
with a bang rather than a whimper. Judging by the killer lineup of local
talent he put together, that is inevitable.
It is also inevitable that something else will come along to showcase
local musicians on such a grand scale. Whether or not it will be organized
by The Weekender Im not sure, but Ive learned as long as there is music,
there are fans willing to spread the good word by any means at their dis-
posal. Thanks, Alan, for being that fan.

One thing that was denite-
ly on everyones mind at the
World Cafe Live in Philadelphia
on July 11 was that The Front
Bottoms are the real deal.
They are not an up-and-
comer that may one day rise
to playing arenas and headlin-
ing huge festivals or fall into
the pit of many other bands
and dissolve. The only ques-
tion surrounding them is how
long it will take them to get to
the top, because if Thursday
was any indication, The Front
Bottoms are here to stay.
Playing to a sold-out crowd
made up mostly of young
adults, the indie punk group
from New Jersey put together
a crowd-pleasing 17-song,
70-minute set.
Perhaps the toughest task
for TFB was following a very
good and energetic perfor-
mance from Georgias The
Wild, an indie/folk/rock hybrid
that could not have done a bet-
ter job warming up the crowd.
The band is like a fast, punk-
rock version of Mumford &
Sons, incorporating catchy riffs
from the banjo while rocking
out and stomping the stage.
TFB took the stage after
setting up a great party atmo-
sphere in the crowd. As DMXs
Party Up (Up in Here) blast-
ed through the speakers, beach
balls were circulating around
and glow sticks that were hand-
ed out just before the lights
dimmed, shined, and soared
through the air as everyone
loosened up and prepared for
the headliner.
The Front Bottoms, made up
of Brian Sella (guitar/vocals)
and Mathew Uychich (drums),
were accompanied by tour-
ing musicians Tom Warren
(bass) and Ciaran ODonnell
(guitar/keys/trumpet). The
four opened with Skeleton, a
popular song off the bands lat-
est release, and went right into
Fireworks.
Every person in the crowd
was singing along as Sella
overlooked and watched with a
huge smile on his face through
the set. About 20 minutes in,
he even exclaimed, This is the
biggest headline we have ever
played to date.
Its easy to pick up on why
the Jersey natives are so popu-
lar among young adults. With
the lyrics of every song telling
a story that is accessible to
everyone, the band is easy to
relate with.
The Front Bottoms may have
related to people in a different
way as well. With many refer-
ences to marijuana and alco-
hol, its clear there is a sense of
rebellion while listening to the
band.
Sella even gave thanks by
saying, I want to thank every
single one of you for making
this the best night of our lives,
and Im going to get fked
up think of every single one of
you.
Without ever hear-
ing a song from the
group, they are able
to keep you listen-
ing, engaged, and
wanting to hear
more. Seeing this
band live is going to
generate a lot more
interest, especially
with their sopho-
more release Talon
of the Hawk being
far from a slump.
People seem to
have an intense con-
nection with The
Front Bottoms,
and the live show
explains it all.

17 A FAIR TIME
Belle and Sebastian, Yo La Tengo rock Philadelphia venue
Director Baillie Walsh
wasnt a diehard fan of
Bruce Springsteen when
he was asked to make
a documentary about
The Boss and his mas-
sive following, but he
soon gained a newfound
respect for the singer/
songwriter when he com-
pleted Springsteen & I.
The 53-year-old New
York resident has direct-
ed music videos with
Massive Attack, INXS,
and New Order; a docu-
mentary on Oasis; and a
lm he also wrote star-
ring Daniel Craig called
Flashbacks of a Fool,
but this was a completely
new and innovative proj-
ect. The lmmakers asked
Springsteen fans from
around the world to sub-
mit videos to a website
that explained how Bruce
changed their lives, and
the response was touch-
ing, funny, and inspiring.
Produced by Ridley
Scott Associates, the
lm will be broadcast in
almost 500 select theaters,
including the Cinemark
theaters in Moosic and
Stroudsburg on Monday,
July 22. The Weekender
talked with Walsh about
the difculties of putting
together such a massive
project, what he learned
about Springsteen and his
fans, and what the Rock
and Roll Hall of Famer
thought of the nished
product.
THE WEEKENDER:
What is your personal
connection to Bruce
Springsteen? Were you
a fan of his music before
this?
BAILLIE WALSH: No.
I was an admirer; I cant
say I was a fan, and I think
that was a good thing to
walk into this lm kind of
objective about
it. In a sense, I
kind of didnt
come with my
own playlist here.
I allowed the fans
to kind of lead me
through the expe-
rience of Bruce
and to learn as I went
along.
The idea essentially
came from the lm Life
in a Day, in the sense that
it was a user-generated
lm and it was the same
kind of concept where you
put a call out to fans. On
that lm, basically they
asked people around the
world to make a lm of
their day, a particular day
of the year, and they com-
piled a lm from those
lms. So its the same
kind of essential idea
we put a call out to Bruce
Springsteen fans asking
them to make lms of why
they love Bruce and his
music.
W: What made you
want to direct this lm?
BW: Well, I loved the
concept of how to make
it. I loved the idea that I
had no idea what the lm
would be, and that puts
the fear of God in me,
which is always a good
sign; it means I dont
know what Im going to
do and I havent done
it before. I havent seen
a lm like this. Thats
always very exciting. And
I love the idea that it was
Bruce because he
is a brilliant sto-
ryteller, and I was
very aware of that,
and I thought that
that might inspire
his fans. I thought
that they might be
good storytellers
too, which they are.
W: What kinds of sub-
missions did you receive
from fans? Did you have
any crazy ones?
BW: I didnt really have
any crazies. The only
crazy I can think of is
someone who sends in 60
lms. That starts to be a
bit kind of extreme, and
we had a few of those
The lms that stood out
to me are the lms that
you watch in the lm.
For me, these people
have heart. I believe
theyre emotional, and
they have incredible
charm and honesty about
them. And thats a thing
that I kind of ltered
through in the sense that
there were much bigger
stories, much more obvi-
ously emotional stories,
but somehow these sto-
ries spoke about Bruce
in a very discreet way
in a sense, and in a very
charming way. That was
the appeal for me.
W: Did anything sur-
prise you about these
stories?
BW: Most of it sur-
prised me, Id say
Therere lots of surprises
in there, lots of humor
and lots of laughs. The
amount of humor within
the lm, I think sur-
prised is the wrong word
I was delighted by the
amount of humor in the
lm. I didnt know I was
going to get that.
W: Was there a par-
ticular song or certain
traits about Bruce that
people seemed to latch
onto more than any-
thing else?
BW: Obviously I got lots
of stories of Dancing in
the Dark because Bruce
includes his audience in
that and he pulls up his
Courteney Coxes from
the audience and always
gives them an opportunity
to participate That was
very difcult to choose
which one because I had to
use one of those because I
think its a very big part of
his live performance, so
it was difcult to choose
which one I was going to
show. We eventu-
ally showed a girl
called Rachel,
an English girl.
I tried it with a
montage of lots
of different people telling
the same story, but some-
how it lost its charm and
lost its power.
What I found about this
lm is the smaller I kind
of kept it, in a way, and
the less grandiose I made
it, the more charm the
lm had.
W: What were some of
the biggest challenges
of putting all this foot-
age together?
BW: The biggest chal-
lenge was to make a lm
out of ve-minute clips,
thousands of them, and
how do you make some-
thing that you can sit
down and watch for an
hour and half without
feeling that youre watch-
ing hundreds of clips and
not connecting with that?
What was very, very dif-
cult for me, and the chal-
lenge for me was how do
I make this all connect?
There is no structure
here; theres nothing to
hang this on, apart from,
of course, Bruces music,
which plays an enor-
mous part in the lm,
and Bruces career that
expands 40 years. I do
have a lot of archive foot-
age in there, and I think
that thats a very big part
of the lm.
W: Would you make
another lm like this,
using crowdsourced
footage again?
BW: Yeah. I dont know
that I could do it about
another rock star because
I think that this is a per-
fect project for Bruce, but
I would certainly, with the
way this lm was made,
be interested in making
another lm like that.
Its such a collaborative
experience, and I really
enjoyed that.
W: Did you hear from
The Boss or his camp at
all?
BW: Yeah. They real-
ly, really love it. Bruce
watched it and really, real-
ly enjoyed it.
W: What are you hop-
ing people take away
from this lm when they
see it?
BW: A broader idea of
it is that music can really
change your life and help
you through your life and
inuence your life in a
really positive way.
Bruce is a really good
inuence on people, and
I think hes a brilliant role
model. Hes inspiring to
me. Hes 63 years old and
making some of his best
work.

A fan on her way to a Dave
Matthews concert in Hershey
pulled over to help a stranded
bicyclist who turned out to be
none other than the singer him-
self.
Emily Kraus and her boyfriend
pulled over Saturday to give a
ride to a man whose bike had
apparently broken down, she
told WHP-TV in Harrisburg.
They realized it was Matthews,
who didnt have a cellphone on
him to call for help. They helped
him stow his bicycle on their bike
rack and he got in their car for
the rest of the ride.
We didnt know how to make
conversation with him, in fact, so
we were talking about his tour
and where he had come from,
Kraus said. He had just been in
Cincinnati and he said, Im tak-
ing a short break after this one
because I have to drop my daugh-
ters off at camp. He was just a
very humble guy.
He invited them to dinner,
took them backstage and got
them front-row seats. Kraus said
she woke up the next morning
still amazed at what had hap-
pened.
I rolled over and I said, OK,
yeah that really happened yes-
terday, she said with a laugh,
recalling that Matthews auto-
graphed their concert tickets and
thanked them for the ride. It
was surreal. We couldnt believe
it. w
Emily Kraus, one of Dave Matthews
fans, pulled over to give a stranded
cyclist a ride and soon realized it
was the frontman himself.

If you missed strypers signature
harmonies and spiritual messages
back in the80s, youre getting another
chance this Wednesday to sayTo Hell
with the devil.
The original lineup is back together and
rocking Brews Brothers West (75 Main
st., luzerne) in support of the groups
latest eP, second Coming, and theyll
be playing at least one newsong from
their upcoming album, no More Hell to
Pay, due out this fall.
The Weekender caught up with singer/
guitarist Michael sweet to relive the
days of spandex and big hair, but also
to talk about the future of the Christian
glammetal band.
THE WEEKENDER: So many stories
have come out of the 80s music
scene in California. What were some
of your experiences there?
MICHAEL SWEET: Oh, gosh. I just
remember, being so young, I was
wide-eyed and mouth open, just kind
of lost in the awesomeness of it as a
kid. I was somewhat protected fromall
the crazy stuf that you hear about and
read about in peoples autobiographies.
at the same time, I was there in it. I had
many times when I was falling down
drunk and couldnt remember the night
before. I was just a kid, for the most
part 16, 17, 18 years old playingwith
Mickey Ratt, which went on to become
Ratt, and hanging out with stephen
Pearcy and drinking and smoking.
I remember themas very good times.
It was just an incredible journey, and
to be a part of that scene that was so
explosive. everyone went to l.a. to make
iteveryone was going there to break
and to make, and many of themdid, and
we were blessed and fortunate enough
to be one of those that did.
W: Stryper is often credited with
helping to bring Christian rock to the
mainstream. Would you agree with
that?
MS: I think so. It always feels a little odd
saying that when youre the one who
was a part of it. It feels a little awkward,
almost like youre boasting or bragging,
but since Imbeing asked the question
and answering it, yeah, I think so. We
were certainly on the front lines. There
were other bands that had brought
Christian music to the masses, but not
the mainstream: bands like Petra.
They hadnt crossed over. They had
primarily played to and performed
to Christian audiences, but when we
came out, we were performing to
mainstreamaudiences in clubs and
venues around the world, death metal
festivals with bands like Testament and
Raven. We were doing that whole thing.
We were doing it a little bit well, a
lot diferently. It just kind of evolved
and exploded and turned into this thing
where we wound up eventually, as you
know, getting airplay on MTVand having
no. 1 videos up against Mtley Cre and
Bon Jovi. There was no explanation for it
other than what we believed at the time
and what we still believe today, and that
is that god was driving the ship.
W: What was it about your music that
you think spoke to people?
MS: I think because we were raised in
the church to a degree we all grewup
around god and knowing about church
and god and religion and spirituality
and the Bible and all that stuf. We all
knewabout that, but yet, at the same
time, we all walked away fromgod and
dabbled in mainstreamsecular music.
We werent listening to Petra. We were
listening to Iron Maiden and Van Halen
and Judas Priest and all these bands
that we grewup on uFO, scorpions,
Kiss and thats what we were drawn
to. Thats what excited us and inspired
us musically, so I think because of that,
because of the history that we have,
we were uniqueyeah, our lyrics were,
Jesus is the way, and really bold, we
were throwing out Bibles, yes, but still,
at the same time, the delivery was
completely diferent.
W: And Stryper has never shied away
from playing with or covering those
types of bands.
MS: no, not at all. Its funny, because we
always seemto take fak for whatever
we do. I think thats just par for the
course; were always going to take fak
for whatever we do. But were staying
true to ourselves and true to our own
convictions and who we are as believers,
and people either accept it or they
dont. We just did a cover albumto show
people where we come frommusically.
yeah, we took a little heat for it, but
yet, at the same time, there are a lot of
people that never really listened to us
before who were drawn to that album
and enjoyed that album.
W: You took some time of from
Stryper, then started a solo career.
What made you come back?
MS: after putting my equipment in a
closet and literally considering giving it
up altogether, I realized this is not me.
Music is me, and its so in me. Its so
instilled in me that I cant escape it. I
cant run fromit. Theres always a song
in my head. Its my life. Its who I am, so
I aggressively started pursuing it again
in 99.
W: How do you retain your legacy as
an 80s band but also stay relevant
today?
MS: I think you walk that tightrope, that
fne line of trying to stay with modern
production and keep things sounding
like when you put it up against anything
else that comes out nowthat sounds
relevant and holds its own against that,
but yet at the same time, you stay true
to who you are in terms of what people
expect to hear. and with stryper, people
want to hear harmony vocals, high
screams, harmony guitar solos theres
a certain thing they want to hear.
W: Do you guys still have your
famous striped jumpsuits?
MS: We do have some striped clothes.
We wear less stripes these days, but
one of these days, Imsure its coming,
where well put on the full head-to-toe
yellowand black and maybe even go
do a tour, kind of like Kiss putting their

Phil Anselmo embodies the
deepest, darkest spirit of heavy
metal itself; that corner of our
minds that we fear to tread. Phils
lived there most of his career, and
hes lived to tell the tale. Through
substance abuse issues, band fall-
outs, and basically coming back
from the musical dead a handful
of times, Anselmos cut a swath
through the metal underbrush
always delivering something
intense, heart-stamped, and a
notch heavier than whatever his
last project was.
Althoughbest knownfor his ten-
ure as Pantera vocalist, Anselmos
pushed the limits of the heavy
in heavy metal with his multitude
of bands like Down, Superjoint
Ritual, and Arson Anthem. On
this, his rst solo album, released
on his well-established Housecore
Records label, Anselmo digs into
the abyss of his oft-tortured exis-
tence and hurls tracks at us like
Battalion of Zero a syncopated
nightmare of riffs and caterwauls.
Anselmos scream, which hon-
estly hasnt been this startlingly
graphic since Panteras The
Great Southern Trendkill, lacer-
ates through sobering thought
processes like the very regression
of society into chaos, with caustic
dissolve.
Tracks like Betrayed seem to
rail against Anselmos feeling of
being scapegoated for situations
like the breakdown of Pantera a
decade ago, with infected lines
like Ive been betrayed, revoked!
while questioning How do they
sleep with themselves at night?
The animalistic quality to the
rhythms are unlike anything any
of his previous projects have con-
tained akin to a madmans vio-
lent, aimless stabs in the dark:
angry, heavy, and purging of any
sense of regret.
There are elements of the fre-
netic-paced death metal grooves
on cuts like Bedridden, while
Irrelevant Walls and Computer
Screens has a trace of the groove
metal of Pantera past. Anselmos
writing here is creatively volatile,
a little disconcerting, and free of
any sort of self-limitations.
-Mark Uricheck, Weekender
Correspondent
Anselmo pushes his limits further
Shira E, a Brooklyn-based singer/
songwriter, artist, and Pushcart Prize-
nominated poet, has been particularly
busy this year. She has independently
released her self-produced rst full-length
studio album, Shouts & Sparks. Shira
E has shared stages and a fanbase
with CocoRosie, tUnE-yArDs, and Ani
DiFranco in over a decade of indepen-
dent music making, and has recently
kicked off her rst solo tour, fanning
the ame of Shouts & Sparks west-
ward across the country. The previously
acoustic artist has plugged in, navigat-
ing new musical terrain with a sampler
and her trusty Casio. Shira Es electronic
explorations veer between generations
of Animal Collectives textured sonic
adventures and the grounded swellings
of Cat Powers stripped-down electro
experiments in 2012s Sun. Shira E lay-
ers chants, tinged with the ancient, until
shes fashioned a stack of stunning vocals
crafted into a contemporary beat.
Myth loops hauntingly gorgeous
vocals, propelling by poetic verses that
spin into deep, bellowy soul before bub-
bling up to a catchy melody. The lyrics
venture between visceral and tender
You wrestled me down, down to the
ground / and you kissed both of my eyes
/ said if you cant see, what I see in you
/ you must be blind allowing dynamic
images to rise and fall with the pulse of
the lyric, the breath of the synth.
Shouts & Sparks leads the listener
like an electric wood nymph, breezing
through dense musical forests of organic
vocals, rattling the rings on tree trunks,
and leaving a trail of blooming narrative
and the ickering echo of Shira Es voice.

Philip H. Anselmo and
The Illegals
Walk Through Exits Only
The Court Yard Hounds open their
second album, Amelita, with a portrait
of a friend who wallows in negativity. But
the arrangement and lyrics of Sunshine
express how this sisterly duo isnt going
to let their downer friend dampen their
day. The breezy, buoyantly melodic song
is a perfect introduction to a collection
of songs that nd two members of the
Dixie Chicks expressing joy in music
once again a drastic shift from their
self-titled rst album and from the dark
musings found on the recent solo debut
of their longtime singing partner, Natalie
Maines.
Sisters Emily Robison and Martie
Maguire keep on the sunny side for most
of Amelita, concocting a distinct acous-
tic blend rife with life-afrming energy
and clever, engaging lyrics to match.
Robison sounds more condent as a lead
vocalist. And the writing of the two sis-
ters, sometimes with guitarist Martin
Strayer, Robisons recently wed husband,
takes on a shine reminiscent of the bliss-
ful elation of early Chicks hits such as
Wide Open Spaces.
They occasionally bring rock swag-
ger to their acoustic sound, as in the
wonderful Rock All Night, about the
excitement of the moments leading up to
attending an eagerly anticipated concert.
Similarly, the aggressive, multi-layered
Phoebe features a ery arrangement
highlighted by a wicked ddle solo by
Maguire.
In the song The World Smiles, the
sisters say they are determined to put
the blues behind them. Amelita implies
that, musically at least, these former
country stars have a spring back in their
step and their infectious way of con-
veying it will lighten the souls, and soles,
of listeners, too.

Belle and Sebastian
light up the Skyline
Philly, you seem like a
good kind of indie, kind
of Belle and Sebastian
town, cooed Stuart
Murdoch, frontman for
Glasgows iconic indie
band.
I got a great view of
the skyline from here; this
is a great place, admired
Murdoch, looking out
over Philadelphia from
the aptly named Skyline
Stage at the Mann Center
in Fairmount Park. Belle
and Sebastian were the
rst to play the 2013
summer stage on July
10. Murdoch uttered
more Philly tidbits, talk-
ing about news of a pack
of dogs chasing park
visitors. Gesturing to
the vast band, he smiled,
Theres enough of us
here. We can take a pack
of wild Chihuahuas.
Openers Yo La Tengo
also integrated Fairmount
Park into their set. Singer
Ira Kaplan gazed across
the faces of fans sitting
in the grass in the wan-
ing light before calmly
suggesting, Lets sing a
couplea park songs, pic-
nic numbers, and began
Big Day Coming, a duet
with Georgia Hubley. The
trio of multi-instrumen-
talists Kaplan, Hubley,
and James McNew
have played together
for decades, mastering
their many between-song
instrumental switches
with perfectly smooth
transitions.
Yo La Tengos set start-
ed with hits, including
Autumn Sweater and
Stockholm Syndrome,
and ended, in true YLT
fashion, with plenty of
reverb. Kaplan wished
the crowd, Good dusk,
everybody. The sky had
evened to darkness by the
time spotlights searched
the stage and colorful
lights drenched the Belle
and Sebastian backdrop,
likening it to one of their
many monotoned album
covers.
Belle and Sebastian put
on an exceptional perfor-
mance, playing across
nearly two decades of
discography with about a
dozen musicians onstage,
including a string quartet
backing core members
Murdoch, Bobby Kildea,
Stevie Jackson, Chris
Geddes, Mick Cooke,
Richard Colburn, and
Sarah Martin.
Martins breathy voice
knocks rst before enter-
ing a song and quickly
charms its way into the
sway of shoulders, add-
ing a signicant whimsy
to the enchanting band.
Stevie Jacksons rounded,
droll vocals jaunt through
early generations of clas-
sic Brit pop, a perfect
balance to Martin and
Murdochs wispy war-
blings in the Belle and
Sebastian vocal trinity.
Blue light ooded the
stage, setting the scene
for the somber Lord
Anthony, off 2003s
Dear Catastrophe
Waitress. Stuart navigat-
ed the down-tempo tune
with lanky strides across
the stage, stopping to
prop his foot on a speak-
er, hand on hip, dipping
to an occasional lunge.
As the strings and vocals
built, Stuart ran a hand
over his forehead, casu-
ally knocking his song-
specic porkpie hat to the
oor. Stillness took the
stage in anticipation of
the singers hop into the
audience, where he asked
a fan to apply eyeliner
according to the lyrics.
After the theatrics, the
stage brightened with the
bounce of fan favorites
Seeing Other People
and Funny Little Frog.
This is a song about
two American cities
not Philadelphia, sorry,
apologized Murdoch.
But theyre in the same
league, if you know what
I mean, he hinted before
the strum of their hit
single, Piazza, New York
Catcher. The tune was
slowed down to a gentle
Americana version, com-
plete with a harmonica
bit by Stevie and a sweet
sing-along gestured on by
Stuart.
Your Covers Blown,
a catchy EP treasure,
brought undeniable
beats that are likely still
rattling around in fans
heads. It will be fea-
tured in the forthcom-
ing Third Eye Centre,
a new release of rarities
akin to Push Barman
to Open Old Wounds.
Having warmed up the
venues dance moves,
Stuart announced, Were
going to do a short song
and a long song, and in
between, were going to
have someone dance.
Several someones danced
onstage to the short
song, Simple Things,
which led straight to the
long song, The Boy with
the Arab Strap, warm-
ing up the audience and
allowing the dancers to
settle into the clap-along,
sway-along songs before
launching the lively
Legal Man.
The onstage crowd
bounced and spun
about, weaving between
bandmates while the
psychedelic vibe was
enlivened by keys and
bongos. Stevie Jacksons
sass-factor rose with his
right hand, as if nudged
skyward by his swiveling
hips, then, in an instant,
his hands were out front
at eye level, parting
across the plane in a deli-
ciously 60s move.
After the song ended
and dancers begrudgingly
shufed offstage, Stuart
shared what a fan had
offered him that her sis-
ter married a Scotsman
named Neil Young. Stevie
began strumming a Young
tune. Go on, Stevie, give
us something, nudged
Stuart. The pair shifted
gears and announced that
Stevie would instead play
Neil Diamond, which, for
a few bars, he did, before
hushing the crowd with
B&S classic Judy and
the Dream of Horses.
Hypnotized, fans whis-
pered lyrics along with
Stuart, swaying under the
spill of red evoking the
album cover of 1996s If
Youre Feeling Sinister.
Following a brief exit, the
Glasgow crew surprised
fans with their rst
encore playing of Dirty
Dream Number Two off
The Boy with the Arab
Strap.
Get Me Away From
Here, Im Dying, anoth-
er song off the beloved If
Youre Feeling Sinister,
started sleepy and
swelled to a buzz. Stuarts
soft repetition of Get me
away, Im dying / Oh, Im
dying, was joined by the
echo of the crowd as the
nal verses ickered into
the night with Fairmount
Parks dancing lightning
bugs.

Its time to take all of your DVDs
of of the shelf and toss them
into the street where they can
be crushed by oncoming trafc.
If you subscribe to Netfix, cut
your broadband connection with
kitchen scissors and kick your
television until its a shapeless
pile of plastic and sparks.
It fnally happened. After more
than 100 years of flmmaking, the
perfect movie has fnally arrived
in theaters. Congratulations,
Hollywood. It was a long and
frequently pointless trip, but you
did it. Nowits time to cancel all
of those plans for that Avengers
sequel and burn every single
print of every movie thats
coming out for the next year and
a half, because once audiences
seePacifc Rim theyll only
ever want to seePacifc Rim.
Every movie they attempt to sit
through after Pacifc Rim will
be like watching grainy, Super 8
footage of fnger puppets being
tossed against a screen door.
Seriously, Imnot overhyping
this. Everybody needs to get their
hopes as high as possible before
they even consider watching this!
Of course, if youre the kind of
Grumpy Gus or Sour Samantha
whos been living under a rock
made of despair for the past few
months you might ask, whats
so special about Pacifc Rim?
Well, Ill tell you whats so special:
Pacifc Rim takes place in an
unspecifed future where giant,
Lovecraft-inspired monstrosities
(or Kaijus, as the flmdubs
them) have emerged froman
inter-dimensional portal to wreak
all sorts of havoc on earth. This in
and of itself would be enough for
most movies, but Pacifc Rim
isnt just about giant creatures
that creep and stomp, its also
about giant robots (or Jaegers
as the flmdubs them) that
punch and strangle the giant
creatures that creep and stomp.
Additionally, the giant robots are
operated telekinetically by a pair
of humans that awkwardly trot
in place inside of the Jaegers
grotesquely enlarged head.
Basically its Transformers
if it was directed by a brilliant,
schizophrenic madman instead
of a bottle of Axe Body Spray in
an Ellen DeGeneres wig.
Unfortunately, some have
complained that the storyline
is clichd and the dialogue
silly. And, well, it is. It is silly
and clichd. But is this really
an issue? First of all, most of
the dialogue is being spoken
by Idris Elba, Charlie Day, and
Ron Perlman in elaborate
copper shoes. These are the
kinds of actors that could shout
indecipherable techno jargon
about neural drifts or mechs
and still make it compelling and/
or funny.
As for the story, well, any
Godzilla fan knows that the
storyline is something you
endure rather than enjoy. The
longer you can endure the
storyline in any giant monster
movie, the greater your reward
will be. And let me tell you, once
you patiently sufer through all
of the scenes where a maverick
loner (Charlie Hunnam) learns
to be less maverick-y and
respect the wishes of his stern
(but caring) commander youre
rewarded handsomely with
scenes of giant robots reaching
into gaping maws of razor-
headed Cthulhu-esque beasts,
tearing their luminescent, lotus
tongues out of their mouths and
eventually stabbing themwith
immense wrist mounted swords.
Its intense and if Silver Linings
Playbook had ended that way, I
probably would have been a lot
more tolerant of its grating little
quirks.
Really, what more can I say at
this point? If this newspaper isnt
currently hovering in mid-air
because youve suddenly run of
to your nearest theater to catch
the latest showing of Pacifc
Rim, I will fnd out who you
are and I will punch all of your
goddamned pets! And I love pets
(except ferrets, hippy).

The phenomena begin
in 1981 in Londons West
end and took a leap into
American waters on
Broadway the following
year. The London produc-
tion ran for 21 years, the
Broadway for 18, and it
is the second-longest run-
ning show on Broadway
so why hasnt the area seen
a production of Cats yet?
Outside of some youth
performances, the famed
stage show has yet to hit
adult theater in the area,
but that will all change
with performances at
Theatre at the Grove in
Nuangola from July 26 to
Aug. 11.
Cats is a musical com-
posed by Andrew Lloyd
Webber thats based on
the T.S. Eliot work Old
Possums Book of Practical
cats. It follows a tribe of
cats called the Jellicles and
the night they make the
Jellicle choice, the picking
of which cat will ascend to
Heaviside Layer and come
back to a new life.
Cats is one of director
Michael Marones favorite
shows, but that has posed
some challenges that go
along with putting on
a show youve seen ve
times.
If theres something you
like so much, you try your
damnedest to replicate it,
of course, he said, but
its a little hard to replicate
dance numbers you see on
Broadway on a stage thats
an eighth of the size.
Theres a huge positive
to the small venue, how-
ever an element of inti-
macy.
Cats will come right
up to your seat and table
and we have entrances that
happen through the audi-
ence, Marone said. The
cast is on stage for about
80 percent of the show and
even when they arent, its
fun to still see that theyre
in character. Someone
might be hanging out in a
corner watching another
cat on stage but theyre
still licking themselves,
pretending to be a cat. Its
constant acting.
Though the show is
wildly popular and has
stood the test of time,
actor Paul Winarski said
the biggest criticism is
that theres no plot.
But, there actually is,
he continued. Each little
moment is a plot and its
all tied together by the
Jellicle Ball.
Each little moment is
brought about by a pletho-
ra of different cats, all with
characters so strong that it
makes up for the supposed
lack of plot.
Its all about the per-
sonality that T.S. Elliot
brought to each individual
character in the poems,
Winarski said. Theyre
really strong and theres a
variety of different person-
alities. The cats are like
human beings.
You have legions of
fans of this show that you
see online talking and dis-
cussing each cat. Everyone
has their favorite. It could
be the smallest role, but
someone identies with
that.
Winarski plays two
roles, one of which is Gus,
the Theatre Cat. That
character in particular pro-
vides insight that Winarski
and his fellow cast mem-
bers can relate to.
Gus is an elderly cat
whos seen better days,
Winarski said. Hes spent
his entire life on stage
and hes looking back at
his career at a time when,
as he says, the theater is
certainly not what it was.
Its very touching, and of
course its something we
also see in our profession,
with shows full of spec-
tacle and overwhelming
effects. It takes millions
to mount a show any more
and the characters are
often forgotten.
Winarksi said another
cat in the show, Rum Tum
Tugger, is reminiscent of
a 70s rock star, with a lot
of people equating it to a
Mick Jagger-type of per-
sonality.
Marones favored cat is
Mr. Mistoffelees, a young
cat with magical powers
he cant fully control.
I like that song and
the big dance number
that goes along with it,
Marone said of the charac-
ter. Ive also always been
a fan of magic and magi-
cians, so to pair wonderful
music and dancing with
the concept of magic is
great.
The cats all came to life
thanks to the talents of the
actors, but another facet to
them that makes the show
so strong is the spectacu-
lar costuming and makeup
that comes along with it,
giving each cat an even
more distinct personality.
Grove will be doing a mix-
ture of things for its cos-
tuming, in making its own
pieces and renting from
another theater that put on
the show in the past, and a
local salon will provide the
makeup.
For those involved with
Cats, its no wonder why
the show has lasted in pop-
ularity as long as it has,
and the folks at the Grove
hope to show the audience
why.
Its just a novelty,
theres nothing else like
it, Marone said. What
other show do you know
that you can see non-stop
dancing and singing from
beginning to end by non-
human characters? I think
that now, other than some-
thing like The Lion King,
theres nothing like this.
Its truly whimsical, care-
free, and unique.
Or perhaps its some-
thing not as deep.
I mean, who doesnt
want to watch men dance
around in unitards?
Marone said with a laugh.

Shredder, a typically Japanese character, will be Caucasian in the 2014 film
adaptation.
Bay plans to shred
Turtles legacy
Despite making hit movie after
hit movie, Michael Bay has become
an easy punching bag for critics
and Internet commenters alike due
to the fact that everything he does
reeks of typical Hollywood. His
upcoming live-action adaptation of
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is
no different, and its not even done
lming yet.
Last year, Nickelodeon obtained
the rights to the popular and iconic
80s characters and created a wide-
ly praised cartoon that updated
the Heroes in a Half Shell for a
new generation. It makes a lot of
changes, but some are for the bet-
ter, and I say that as a fan who grew
up with the original TV series and
the comic books. For one, April
ONeil is now a teenager interested
in learning martial arts along with
her green friends, which transforms
her character from dumb damsel
to relatable rebel, so a movie pro-
duced by the same company has to
be progressive too, right?
Nope. Like a robotic vessel with-
out a Krang, Bay marched right in
and put an end to such feminist
nonsense, casting Megan Fox as
the airhead our computer-generat-
ed reptiles will be saving. You could
ask how I already know what type
of character shell be playing, but
if you did, Id have to refer you to
the rest of her career, and we really
dont want to relive any of that.
The latest bit of news that has
fans oozing disgust is the casting
of William Fichtner as Shredder,
the evil leader of the Foot Clan and
main antagonist for the Turtles.
Fichtner, who you may remember
as the bank manager in The Dark
Knight whose pathos ultimately
leads to nothing, is a great charac-
ter actor in the I know that guy!
roles he plays, but I doubt he has
the ability to change his ethnicity.
Shredders real name is Oroku
Saki, and throughout his many dif-
ferent incarnations over the years,
he has always been portrayed as a
Japanese man (except when he was
an alien brain in that weird 2003
cartoon), but now, like the entire
main cast of this new lm, hes just
another white guy. And speaking
of white guys, Danny Woodburn
of Seinfeld fame will play Master
Splinter, the Turtles sensei, anoth-
er character typically portrayed as
Japanese, particularly in his accent.
Why did Bay go out of his way to
whitewash this cast?
Im sure hell argue that these
gentlemen were just so right for
the roles that he wasnt going to be
bound by race, attempting to turn
the racist card back on his accus-
ers, but the issue here lies in the
fact that their race is actually quite
important to their origins in this
case. These are martial artists from
Japan in a story where ninjas play
a signicant role making them
Caucasian (and likely American)
forces the script writers (and
I use the term loosely) to either
explain how they learned ninjutsu
or to change their stories com-
pletely.
On the other end of the spec-
trum, Marvel Studios shot extra
(and superuous) scenes for
Iron Man 3 specically to court
Chinese audiences, though it was
met with mixed results. It seems
that Hollywood cant decide if it
wants the attention of foreign audi-
ences or not, though at the end of
the day, fans care much more about
staying true to what they already
love and appreciate over any bla-
tant pandering. I know plenty of
black people who identify just
ne with a white Spider-Man, and
I know plenty of white guys who
think Blade is one of the best super-
natural heroes ever created because
theyre just awesome characters,
black or white. I have yet to hear of
any Japanese fans being offended
by Shredder or Splinter, so why the
dramatic shift?
Jonathan Liebesman, the direc-
tor of lame sequels (Wrath of
the Titans) and prequels (The
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The
Beginning) nobody asked for, has
mostly avoided criticism despite
sitting in the directors chair, but
we all know that Bay is the one
pulling the strings here. It would
have made sense for Nickelodeon
Movies to produce a lm closer to
its source material that respects
and builds upon the franchise like
the cartoon does, even if it were
just for tie-in purposes, yet they
let Bay run this movie right into
the sewer from the get-go. This is
the same guy who almost made
the Turtles aliens until Internet
riots ensued why build another
Transformers when you can pull
in Marvel-type money by taking the
material seriously?
Because sexism is safe. Because
white characters are safe. Because
the title is safe, in the sense that
people will see it, no matter how
bad they expect it to be, just
because they like the old cartoons
and comics. If you are one of those
people, I suggest you stay home on
June 6 next year and enjoy what
you love, because you wont nd
it in theaters. Hollywood is still
busy pleasing a demographic that
doesnt exist.

It is ofcial: Katy Perry and John
Mayer have penned a song togeth-
er, and that track will appear on
Mayers album Paradise Valley.
The only question left unanswered
for sure is: Will Perrys vocals be fea-
tured on the single as well? My ini-
tial sources conrmed a version of
the song with the Teenage Dream
singer has in fact been recorded. But
with Perry and Mayer under differ-
ent record labels, there is no guar-
antee that nancials for her cameo
were worked out before the LP was
sent to be mastered.
The Ralphie Show broke the
exclusive on June 27: Mayer was
nalizing his fourth studio album,
and it was a possibility that a duet
he recorded with his on-and-off girl-
friend could make the cut. This isnt
exactly uncharted territory for the
Who Says singer; 2009s Battle
Studies saw a Taylor Swift cameo
on Half Of My Heart. But while
Swift is noted as a featured artist,
it is Mayer who receives the only
writers credit for that song.
Paradise Valley is now slated for
an Aug. 20 release according to its
Amazon.com page. Under Perrys
catalog listing on the Warner/
Chappell Music web site, she and
Mayer are co-writers for Who You
Love. Amazon places it as track
six on the album, and snippets of
the song can be heard in footage
released by Mayer of himself in stu-
dio recording the project.
DOC GOODEN RESPONDS
TO MICHAEL LOHANS
COMMENTS
Michael Lohan will tell anyone
willing to listen that former pitcher
Dwight Doc Gooden has fallen
off the wagon. Lindsays father
claims he and Gooden were in rehab
together, and that lately the baseball
player wont return his or anyone
elses calls.
Doc has appeared in the media
since, at-out refuting Lohans
claims that he relapsed from his
drug addiction.
(He) makes his success on his
daughters success or failure, and I
just wish him the best and her the
best, Gooden told me at Citi Field
in Queens, N.Y., before playing in
the Taco Bell All-Star Legends and
Celebrity Softball Game. I have
no comment at all for what he said
because its not true.
Gooden has not reached out
directly to Lohan either since the
headlines broke. He believes theres
no reason to.
Coincidentally enough, Goodens
comments came right before a TMZ
report that Lindsay is planning on
moving back to New York City fol-
lowing her latest stint in rehab.

Book reviews and literary insight
Kacy Muir | Weekender Correspondent
There are times we connect
darkness to past, to anonymity,
and unsettling notions of what
does or does not exist therein,
often measuring its nature by our
ability to nd the light. However,
in Tom Hennens latest poetry
collection, Darkness Sticks to
Everything, it becomes a source
of insight.
The collection begins with an
introduction from novelist and
poet, Jim Harrison. The work
then chronologically follows
Hennens work from past to pres-
ent in sweeping motion. Within
the rst few pages, it is obvious
to recognize that Hennens work
is profoundly inuenced by land-
scape, an aspect he has richly
captured in each poem.
As a former letterpress printer
and wildlife technician, Hennen
helpedtoestablishthe Minnesota
Writers Publishing House in
1972. By 1974, Hennen had pub-
lished his rst poetry collection,
The Heron with No Business
Sense. He went on to publish
ve more compilations before
gaining national success with his
latest work. In Darkness Sticks
to Everything, Hennen included
his poem, Lake Minnewaska Is
Turning to Slush, from his ini-
tial collection. Its position in the
beginning of the work gives way
to Hennens overall thematic mes-
sage: Tracks lead to shore / Past
an old boat punched full of holes
/ Toward a cabin / With kitchen
lights already on. / Everyone has
gone inside. / A gill net hangs
from the garage wall / Dripping /
Monotonous as an all-night rain.
/ Scaling the just-caught sh /
Darkness sticks to everything.
Most of the collection is awe-
inspiring, but poems such as
Dirt Road, Farm on a Winter
Morning, At Night I Dissolve,
Light No Longer Seems a Gift,
and Late March are some of
the most notable to connect
Hennens past to present. There
is denite maturity as the col-
lection moves forward, and an
acceptance of growing older in
a country where the landscape
Hennen once described has all but
seemingly vanished. Fortunately,
the timeline of Hennens poetry
demonstrates a changing perspec-
tive that will forever be cemented
by his words. Hennens work is
saturated with pastoral imagery,
and while the title may give off a
sense of impending doom, the col-
lection has an outlook that is more
positive than forlorn. The lyrical
poems, in their simplicity, display
the ponderings of time well spent
in observation taking note of
our every sense to see, to hear,
to taste, to smell, and to touch.
Readers complete the work under-
standing that one cannot simply
escape darkness, only sense his or
her way through it.

It had been quite some
time since the city of
Wilkes-Barre saw a Third
Friday event, but thanks to
the hard work and dedica-
tion of a board of people
passionate about local arts
and culture, the event was
brought back last month
and with spectacular
results.
We are very happy with
the way things turned
out, committee mem-
ber Chris Kelly said. We
had the Riverfest and the
Osterhout Book Sale going
on at the same time, so it
was a good spark to get us
up and running. Were just
going to keep building and
building.
Kelly said there was a
great crowd moving around
the city, with each venue
pulling in 50 to 60 people
throughout the night.
Third Friday gives locals
a chance to visit various
businesses in downtown
Wilkes-Barre, experiencing
all they have to offer as well
as some pieces from local
artists and musicians.
Kelly said one of the
reasons Third Friday was
so successful is that such
terms used to describe an
event are well-known.
You dont need to
explain to people what its
all about, because theyre
popping up everywhere.
Now that people have a
good idea of what it is,
theyre more apt to check
it out.
Such events are unique.
Every month could
be different because each
venue that signs on can get
a different artist and high-
light a different performer,
artists musician, whatever
they feel theyd like to pro-
mote, Kelly said. Even if
people are stopping in the
same venue each month
theyre going to get a total-
ly new experience.
Its also benecial for the
artists, who Kelly said can
sell what they make to the
public.
Wed love for them to
not only be able to make
some income, but be able
to share their art with peo-
ple who can take it home
and enjoy it.
This month, Tony Brooks
of the Luzerne County
Historical Society will do
a tour that highlights local
history at 5 p.m. on trol-
ley provided by the LCTA.
Afterwards, the trolley will
run on a continuous loop
around the city, providing
transportation to different
venues .

Beer: Witte
Brewer: Brewery
Ommegang
Style: Witbier
ABV: 5.20%
D e s c r i p t i o n :
Ommegangs Witte pours
a hazy straw-like yellow
hue with huge foamy head
that lingers and leaves an
impressive lacing on the
glass. The aroma is abso-
lutely perfect and is very
inviting to the senses,
bringing out scents of cori-
ander, very sweet wheat,
hops, honey, citrus fruits,
and just ever so subtle
notes of banana and clove.
The overall reaction to
the taste can be described
in one word: refreshing.
This is a perfect beer to
have on a hot summer day.
The spices do not over-
whelm the palate at all, but
instead offer a nice rened
kick that make this witbier
even more inviting.
The attack of the wheat,
honey, and citrus notes
will hit the palate rst
while the subtle spices
follow before nishing up
quite dry, but still leave
the palate feeling refreshed
and invigorated.
The medium body of
the beer combined with
the fairly high carbon-
ation also contributes to
the refreshing feeling by
leaving a very crisp touch
on the palate. While this
is certainly not the most
complicated beer on the
market I cannot think of
a better beer to have on a
warm summer day!
Food pairing:
Ommegangs Witte is a
beer that crosses all meal
boundaries. Yes, thats
right, this is a great beer
for breakfast, or brunch,
for those lazy summer
days!
Any egg dishes will have
a perfect counterpoint
with Witte, with the citrus
aromatics offering an even
deeper and more enjoyable
experience of your meal.
And fear not, bacon and
sausages will be overcome
by the wonderful acidity
within the beer and meld
into one delicious dish. For
a truly perfect breakfast
partner for Witte, check
out a wonderful recipe for
Eggs, Bacon, and Greens
Panini on my blog at idtap-
that.org. If you are look-
ing to enjoy Witte with a
lunch dish then I recom-
mend a salad, and dont
be afraid to pile on the
cheese, chicken, shrimp,
eggs, or whatever you like,
as this beer can handle it
and aid in the melding of
the avors.
A perfect dinner accom-
paniment for this beer is
sh; any sh that you typi-
cally squeeze a lemon onto
works well.
Is it worth trying?: As
with all beers that come
from Brewery Ommegang,
absolutely! Brewery
Ommegang has a very
well-earned reputation for
consistently releasing high
quality beers at affordable
prices and Witte certainly
falls into that category.
Also, the witbier style
lends itself perfectly to the
summer season with its
citrus notes and refreshing
characteristics, and while
this is a great summer
beer it is also enjoyable,
and available, throughout
the year. So use your own
wit and go grab yourself a
bottle or two!

Where can I get
it?: Currently available
in bottles at: Krugels
Georgetown Deli, Wilkes
Barre; Exit 190 Beer Deli,
Dickson City; Wegmans,
Dickson City and Wilkes
Barre; and Backyard Ale
House, Scranton.
Remember, enjoy
responsibly!

Style: Witbier
Brief History: Throughout history many
beers styles have come and gone and the
witbier style was another that was nearly
gone and forgotten. The witbier style, wit-
bier meaning white beer, has been around
since the 1500s and grewin popularity
steadily over the years, peaking in the late
1800s throughout Europe. However, by the
1950s the style was all but extinct thanks
to a fewwars, brewery consolidations, and
the growth of various lagers. But in 1966
a milkman named Pierre Celis established
the De Kluis brewery next to his house in
Hoegaarden and his witbier-styled beer
took off in popularity. The brewery became
extremely successful, but a disastrous re
in 1985 changed things quickly. Afterwards,
Celis was nancially ruined and was forced
to sell to brewing conglomerate Interbrew
(nowAB InBev), which still produces
Hoegaarden to this day. Nevertheless, this
one man single handedly saved an entire
beer style and thanks to himwe can enjoy
the fruits of his labor today!
Standard Characteristics: Witbiers are
unltered and give the appearance of being
cloudy. They are typically very pale strawto
very light gold in color with a dense white
frothy head with good retention. The ABV
range for Witbier is not very wide, rang-
ing only from4.5 to 5.5 percent, so these
are denitely sessionable beers that can be
enjoyed in larger quantities. They also have
very lowbitterness with almost no hop bit-
terness coming through with a moderate
amount of spices used. One note, though,
is that these beers do not typically age well
despite being refermented in the bottle, and
are best enjoyed as fresh as possible.
Nose: Amoderate amount of sweetness
in the nose, typically that of honey along
with light wheat aromatics and spice. The
appearance of citrus is also standard, typical-
ly orange or lemon, and in the background
there can be a complex herbal spicy or pep-
pery note.
Body: Witbiers tend towards the
medium-light to mediumbody to allowfor
the refreshing qualities of this beer to shine
through. They can have a smoothness that
can almost be cream-like in feeling; this
is fromthe wheat. The nish on the beer
should be quite dry and should also have a
high carbonation.
Taste: The taste should match the nose
almost perfectly in that its a mild sweetness,
again tasting of slight honey, which should
be apparent along with citrus fruits. The
main highlight of this beer should be the
refreshing qualities between the sweetness,
citrus, and spices being perfectly balanced
so that no one characteristic outshines the
other, but instead melds together.
Food Pairing: Witbiers are absolutely
perfect for light faire, especially on hot sum-
mer days. This is also a beer that is goes well
with a wide range of brunch plates, whether
it be an omelet, bacon, sausage, or a grilled
hamand cheese sandwich. Witbiers are a
perfect accompanying beer for salads as
well in that they are able to add to the dish
without taking anything away fromit; not
an easy feat by any means when it comes
to salads. Mexican and Thai dishes are also
wonderful here in that they have citrus notes
in many dishes that will highlight the citrus
in witbiers.
Recommendations: The witbier style is
extremely approachable by all, regardless
if one is a newbie to the craft beer world or
an experienced craft beer drinker. The style
has been popular in the United States for
quite some time and many are very familiar
with it already. So the question is: what
ones should I be on the lookout to try? Well,
I compiled a list of what I humbly think
are great witbiers to try, so if any of these
are newto you write themdown and ask
for themat your favorite craft beer store.

- because I couldnt get a picture through all
the smoke.
Burnin down the house
No one on this planet
knows what Im about to
tell you, except my signi-
cant other and my dog. I
feel like I should start this
off as our columnist Justin
Brown sometimes ends his
stories: Sorry Mom and
Dad.
The incident lasted all
of ve minutes, absolute
tops, but it was one of the
most embarrassing things
Ive gone through - and,
in hindsight, the funniest.
All I wanted to do was
make some ery jalapeno
buffalo burgers with sweet
potato pancakes as buns,
recipe courtesy of the book
Practical Paleo by Diane
Sanlippo.
Ugh, the irony of the
ery in this recipe just
now hit me.
Its a pretty simple reci-
pe: For the burgers, grill a
jalapeno until blackened,
gut and chop it, then com-
bine it with your choice of
meat, pepper, salt, paprika
and onion powder and grill
the patties up. I went with
lamb, but bison is also a
tasty option.
Also, a good tip, because
I sometimes nd I have
trouble cooking meat:
make a thumbprint-sized
dimple in the middle of
each burger to allow for
even cooking.
The sweet potato pan-
cakes are also easy. All
you need to do is combine
shredded sweet potatoes
with eggs, coconut our (I
used organic because coco-
nut was impossible to nd
locally), cinnamon, sea
salt, and ginger, then press
it into cake-like shapes.
The recipe calls for three
eggs, but I feel as though
the mixture was too wet,
so I would recommend
going with only two. If
you nd it to be dry, crack
another egg in there.
Next, fry them in a pan
over medium heat. This is
where everything went to
hell.
A while back I told you
how my
e l e c t r i c
stove is
incredibly
t e mpe ra -
m e n t a l .
The top
left burner
gets sur-
face-of-the-
s u n - h o t ,
even if put
only to 3
or 4. So, guess what burn-
er I used to cook the cakes
on? Idiot.
I should tell you now
that my place of residence
has a smoke alarm thats
wired in to the local re
department, but it also
has a regular one as well.
So when my cakes start-
ed cooking way too fast,
throwing smoke in every
direction, and causing the
smoke alarm to go off, I
assumed it was the regu-
lar one. It didnt seem as
though there was that
much white stuff oating
around, so why would the
other go off?
I calmly opened the
windows and door to
my apartment to air
it out and did what
most people do when
a smoke alarm goes
off for a reason other
than an actual re
and the bleating is too
much for their ears to
bear - unhooked it
from the ceiling. Big.
Fat. Mistake.
About a minute
later, as the boy and
I were nishing up
cooking, I heard
sirens. My heart
stopped - I just knew
where they were com-
ing.
Relax, boyfriend
said, Im sure they
arent coming here.
And still, they grew
louder. And louder.
And then I could hear
truck doors slamming
shut and the crackle
of walkie-talkies.
I raced down the
steps to head them
off and wouldnt you
know it - there, in my tiny
parking lot, blocking part
of a very busy street, was
an ambulance, re truck,
cop car, and another re
truck on the way.
Im just burning my
dinner! I shouted to the
men who were now rush-
ing towards the door to
my building. Its ne, I
swear!
And so I stood as they
radioed Stand down,
cooking incident for all
to hear. Then I led a guy
dressed in full-on re-
ghter gear, a cop, and
someone else from the re
department up to my sec-
ond-story abode to see not
only that there was no re,
but my apartment is, in
fact, a re hazard because
it needs to be cleaned so,
so badly right now.
They did a quick sweep,
told me to put a fan in front
of the window to pull the
smoke out, and were on
their way - taking my dig-
nity with them.
I would not only like to
thank my S.O. for loving
me at my most cringe-
worthy, but also the men of
the re and police depart-
ments in Wyoming for
showing up so quickly to
make sure all was OK and
being so understanding.
And you, mom and dad, for
not freaking out when you
read this. Its funny now,
right?
Go forth, my friends,
and make these burgers
(which turned out to be
insanely delicious) - just
dont let things get heated
like I did.

Makeup tips and tricks Made easy
Bobby Walsh | Weekender Correspondent
Makeup Rules: The Real King
Bob (Bobby Walsh)
Youre sitting by the pool and
all of a sudden someone does a
cannon ball into the water and
splashes you. You are having a
nice lunch outside when it begins
to pour and you didnt bring an
umbrella. You become an inno-
cent bystander trapped in the
middle of a water balloon ght,
or you are just simply enjoying
your pool and hot tub ever so
carefully trying not to go under
the water. All of these scenarios
will probably happen to you at
some point this summer, and Ill
help you get prepared to take on
all of these tasks wide-eyed and
waterproofed. Nothing can stand
in the way of these perfect treat-
ments to keep your eye makeup
smudge-free this summer!
The rst treatment that I found
to be a great help with water-
proong your eyes and giving
them that natural, no-makeup
denition perfect for diving right
into the pool is eyelash perming
and tinting. When you perm the
eyelashes it helps open up the
eye, and then newly curled lashes
will give you that irty, natural,
smoked denition to any makeup
look.
The perming process is safe,
fairly quick, and denitely pain-
less. Customized soft rods hold
the lashes in place as a gel solu-
tion is applied and, after a few
minutes, wiped off, followed by
the removal of the rods - voila,
youre nished!
Eyelash tinting will help add
a deeper color to less visible,
lighter colored lashes; you can
choose from blue black, black,
dark brown, brown and auburn.
Tinting guarantees full color cov-
erage fromroot to tip, making the
lashes appear longer and darken-
ing them to give you a natural
denition along your lash line, as
if you had a slight amount of liner
on. Eyelash perming and tinting
will last a good 4 to 6 weeks or
until you fully replace your lashes
naturally. Mine lasted me close
to two-and-a-half months or so. I
really enjoyed it since my lashes
tend to point downward; it helped
to open my eye up signicantly.
Locally, I know The Sapphire
Salon & Spa (www.thesapphire-
salon.com) offers these particu-
lar services for a combined total
of $47 at around and hour of your
time at the longest.
The other new and amazing
service for waterproong your
lashes for a makeup-free, no-mess
summer eye is semi-permanent
mascara. A special quick-drying
mascara formula is applied to
your curled lashes ever so care-
fully, making sure each lash is
separated, and a drying tool is
also given to help speed up the
process. Once your top is done
they move to the bottom, then
back to the top, guaranteeing suf-
cient lash coverage. This mas-
cara formula, unlike the perming
and tinting, will give you signi-
cant length and beautiful volume.
This mascara will last 10 day to 3
weeks; I just suggest to research
a little and make sure you arent
using too many oil-based prod-
ucts around your eyes that will
prevent the mascaras true lon-
gevity. Permanent mascara can
also be found at The Sapphire for
around $28, also a great alterna-
tive to the four-day lash stain I
used to use from Tarte, since it
has been discontinued.
Tip: Run your lash curler under
hot water or lightly warm up the
curler with a blow dryer before
curling your lashes for extra lon-
ger lasting curl.
Trick: For additional daily def-
inition with eyelash perming and
tinting use a clear mascara, so
if it runs you wont have a mess
under your eyes.
Splash-proof eyes
The eyes will certainly have it this
summer with these smudge-proof
beauty tips.

RIDE OF THE WEEK
Michael Golubiewski | Special to the Weekender
To submit your vehicle,
email: mgolubiewski@theweekender.com
I have owned this bike since 2007, Crosby
said. When I got it, it was in need of some major
TLC. Thanks to Schaefers Harley Davidson in
Orwigsburg rebuilding the engine, rewiring the
whole chassis and adding a new Sony Marine
Stereo system, new Chrome and new tires, it runs
better than new! I have to also thank Chris Mell of
Chris Mell Motorcycle Restoration in Reading for
the incredible paint work and hand painting my
nickname, the Tick on the front fairing. Altogether
the bike cost much more than a brand new one but
in the end it was well worth it. This bike has taken
us across country, to the shore, up through New
England, and through the mountains of Western PA!
We cant get enough of watching peoples heads turn
as we ride by! W

Nintendo releases newMario
ROBBIE VANDERVEKEN
Weekender Correspondent
Little brothers rejoice! Nintendo
has released its rst DLC (disc
version coming soon) for a Super
Mario game and its all about
Marios little brother in New
Super Luigi U.
For the rst time, Luigi has a
staring role in a platforming Mario
game, allowing him to take on a
platforming adventure just like his
famous brother. New Super Luigi
U features more than 80 new lev-
els made only for Luigi.
New Super Mario Bros U (or
NSMBU, released in 2012) was a
great game and this DLC makes
it even better, especially through
creating an alternate version of the
original. You can play the original
levels or play the alternate Luigi
levels, which are mostly the same
but have game tweaks that change
the experience substantially.
Not only is this one of the rst
DLC items from Nintendo, but
this is the rst Mario-like game
that the character isnt in. Nothing
has really changed about the story,
although most Mario games dont
have much of a story. No, it never
explains why Mario is not in the
game, but just go with it. The only
real difference is that the levels
have been redesigned to accom-
modate Luigis play style. Just
like in Super Mario Bros 2 on
the NES, Luigi moves differently
than his brother, such as jump-
ing higher; however, he doesnt
stop running as quickly. It takes
some getting used to, but it is an
interesting change. Another thing
that changes the game play is the
timer. Most levels start with a 100
second timer, which adds more of
a challenge and creates a sense of
urgency, making the game very
challenging. I dont know what
it is but when I hear the sped up
music it makes me panic a bit.
I dont know if I enjoy each level
making me feel on edge, but it
does make the game more fast-
paced and exciting.
If you were worried the game
wasnt going to have multiplayer
because Mario isnt around, dont
fret - there are still Toadstools to
play as and a new character called
Nabbit. Nabbit, who was in New
Super Bros U but wasnt playable.
Hes now a full-edged character
who you can play through the
game with. Nabbit is pretty much
invincible, but he cannot use any
of the power-ups. Hes a great addi-
tion for new players that have a
hard time with the difculty level.
Beware, though, as Nabbit can still
be killed by falling in pits and by
lava.
New Super Luigi U isnt the
most groundbreaking game in the
series. It doesnt offer any new
power-ups, but the time limits,
level designs, and the way Luigi
moves is enough to keep a Mario
veteran on their toes, plus its
always nice when there are new
levels to play. Its denitely worth
the $20 price tag to play levels
with such ingenious design. Its
not a substantial as a standalone
game, but it is great as an add-on
to NSBU.
If you are a old school Mario fan
or just like a fun platformer, then
this game is worth a download.
Its loads of fun and its great to see
Luigi as the star and not just as the
Player 2 character.

New Super Luigi U
System: Wii U
Genre: Platformer
Rating: E for Everyone
Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: Nintendo
Though Luigi has captured the lead role in this new game, his skillset is still the same. Thankfully he should be ok when
it comes to this level, as hes still able to jump higher than his brother Mario.
Theres no Mario to be found, but plenty of other characters to play in this
series, including Luigi, several Toadstills, and new character Nabbit.

VIDEO GAME REVIEWS
Robbie Vanderveken | Special to the Weekender
Male Musings on love, roMance, and dating
Kenny Luck | Special to the Weekender
Size matters
Its everywhere.
Men are praised for it, girls supposedly
envy not having it, and every weapon in
the worldfrom bullets to arrows to mis-
silesis shaped like it. Its half responsible
for your existence, and it has more slang
names than Taylor Swift has had hit songs.
You may have guessed it: its the organ of
all organs the male endowment, or, to
use its proper name, the phallus.
Freudian psychoanalysis dominated the
interpretation of culture for most of the
last century, prompting readers to look for
phallic symbols everywhere. But despite
oversaturation, I think science and cul-
ture can teach us more about the societal
importance of the male endowment.
Examples abound.
Men in the highlands of New Guinea
have a decorative sheath called a phallo-
carp. This device can be as big as two feet
long and four inches in diameter, making
for one well-hung individual. Decorated
with bright red or yellow colors, these
devices are also covered with fur, leaves
and other ornament.
The point, I assume, is to attract females
by exaggerating the appearance of the
mans reproductive machinery. Other spe-
cies, like the male bowerbird and peacock,
use similar sexual signals to attract poten-
tial mates. Zoologists who study this kind
of thing have documented sexual selec-
tion, as Darwin called it, in other parts of
the animal kingdom as well.
Elsewhere inthe world, inrural Northern
Thailand, villagers practice a tradition
of displaying carved, wooden phalluses
throughout the village to repel deceased
widow ghosts. When a healthy male dies
in his sleep, a widow ghost is blamed.
Allegedly, these deceased dames roam
about Northern Thai villages, looking for
men to take as their husbands and with
whom they have sexual intercourse, kind
of like that scene in Ghostbusters when
Dan Aykroyd gets his pants unzipped by
a ghos - not a bad deal for the guy (who is
alive) because theres no chance of getting
an STD.
Ranging from the crudest wooden
shafts to carefully carved images complete
with coconut shell testicles and shnet
public hair, they adorn virtually every
house, said anthropologist Mary Beth
Mills.
Mills has observed these unusual lawn
ornaments rsthand. In the U.S., erecting
an erected male shaft on ones front lawn
might not y because of city zoning laws,
but in rural Northern Thailand villages, its
all the rage.
Another aspect of male size has to
do with evolution. Among the great
apes, human males rank on top for size.
According to Jared Diamond, author of
Why Sex is Fun, the length of the erect
penis is only about 1 inches in gorillas
and 1 inches in orangutans but 5 inches
in humans, even though males of the two
apes have much bigger bodies.
One explanation for this is that mens
penises evolved to match the length of the
womens vagina. If not for this natural limi-
tation, men might be walking around with
junk the size of those New Guinea phallo-
carps described earlier, which might make
playing contact sports and jogging a lot
more difcult!
At any rate, science and culture can help
us understand a lot when it comes to the
male endowment, its symbolic importance
and its origins in both biology and folklore.
W
We hear the phrase size matters when it comes to a particular male body part - but, does it really?
Fitness tips & tricks
Tim Hlivia | Weekender Correspondent
This past weekend I turned 41. Im
not quite sure how I feel about it, but
what I am certain of is how thankful I am
for every day that comes my way. I feel
blessed for what I have, not for super-
cial reasons, but because of my loving
family and friends.
Birthdays have a way of putting things
into perspective. Im a thinker. I always
analyze things, perhaps a bit too much.
It keeps me on track and allows me to
clearly see my life, to appreciate where
Ive been and to look forward to where
Im headed. Spending time in contempla-
tion allows me to blueprint my goals and
helps me follow a path, instead of taking
a random, less thought-out approach.
My goals arent always super goals;
sometimes they are as simple as get-
ting in my two workouts per week or
even making sure I drink enough water
throughout the day. By being task-ori-
entated it allows me to feel a sense of
accomplishment. This catapults me into
my next set of goals and helps me main-
tain discipline and stay motivated during
my downtime.
I still work two jobs. I have my Monday
through Friday 9-to-5 gig and spend early
mornings, nights and weekends at the
gym, my true passion. I still havent g-
ured out the balance Im striving for, but
Im working at it week by week.
Getting burned out with work can
put things into a downward spiral - like
your workouts and eating habits, and I
know this rsthand. I try to keep things
in check, reminding myself to reel things
back in if I feel myself slipping away from
my normal routine. For me, its mentally
and physically important to stray for a
bit, usually a month or so this time of
year. I still get in 2 to 3 workouts a week
and I eat decently, but my workouts have
been less intense and I satised my sweet
tooth more than usual. Now its time to
get back on track!
Luckily, I never feel at my best when
Im on a break so Im always anxious
to get back to my regular routine of
workouts and meal prep. As I look ahead
to this upcoming year I will continue
to learn, I will continue to analyze my
strengths and weaknesses and I will try
to continue to set aside time to work on
myself. I will also learn to separate when
its grind time, prime time and unwind
time.
Maintaining discipline,
and knowing when to chill
Maintaining a strict exercise regime is great, but every now and again you may need to take a little
break.

Areal mouthful
When I was in college, I
used to host a morning radio
show with my buddy on the
campus radio station. Once a
week, from 6 a.m. to 10a.m.,
we controlled the airwaves
of California University of
Pennsylvanias WCAL radio sta-
tion to host a show called Tons
of Fun with Us - a name that
we were hopefully high when
we came up with.
Waaaaaake up,
California!!!!!!!! we would
scream bright and early to our
listeners, which usually consist-
ed of my fraternity pledges that
I forced to listen.
This is Dougie Fresh! intro-
duced my co-host.
And Im The Hot Mess! Id
follow.
Yes, my radio name in college
was The Hot Mess - which was
quite appropriate, considering I
would usually roll in hung over,
or still drunk, twenty minutes
after Dougie Fresh would open
the show.
Youre an hour late! pointed
out Dougie Fresh one morning.
I wish! I actually have this
horrible toothache. I couldnt
sleep all night! I answered.
During a song break at 8 a.m.
I called the dentist, hoping to
get an appointment after the
show.
Were booked all day, I was
told by the receptionist. If
youre really in a lot of pain, I
can squeeze you in right now.
I rushed down the street
to the dentist, where I was
informed I had a cavity that was
pretty close to the root.
Youre lucky it didnt reach
the root, said the doctor. Ill
just give you a lling right now.
Im kind of hosting a radio
show, I told him. Can we do
this later?
It turned out he was booked
all day, and leaving for vacation
the following day, so I had to
get it done right there.
You said you were going to
the bathroom! shouted my co-
host when I returned fteen
minutes before the show was
over. You were gone for an
hour and a half!
I know! Im sorry dude,
I had to go get a lling at the
dentist, I admitted.
Dougie Fresh was left to carry
the show that morning, because
even when I returned I couldnt
speak very clearly.
Wrapping up the show,
Dougie Fresh looked at me like
he wanted me to speak. With a
combination of pain killers and
wanting to lighten the mood
from being a bad co-host that
day, I said: Congratulations to
Dougie Freshs mom for being 5
years cancer free today!
His face froze.
My mom listened to
the show today for the rst
time WITH EVERYONE AT
WORK! he shouted after we
went off air. I can only imagine
what shes thinking right now!
Sorry, Mom and Dad, that I
made his mothers ofce think
she was secretly battling a dis-
ease. I guess thats why today
Dougie Fresh is an editor at
theChive.com, and I manage a
dive bar.
Co-hosting a radio show was a blast for Justin - especially when he used it
for practical (and ill-timed?) jokes.
GOVERNMENT INACTION
suspicions Confrmed: awarehouse
in landover, Md., maintained by a
company working on contract for the
u.s. environmental Protection agency,
containedsecret rooms of furniture
and equipment described as man
caves for company employees. The
ePainspector general announced the
discovery in May, and the government
confscated TVs, refrigerators, couches,
personal photos, pin-ups, magazines and
videos that the contractors personnel
brought in while ostensiblyworking on
agency business.
scotlands Parliament was revealed
in May to be considering, as part of
its Children and young People Bill,
guaranteeing that specifc, named
persons would be appointed for
every scottish child at birth, charged
with overseeing that childs welfare
until adulthood. adaily Telegraph
story acknowledged that the bill is
remarkably vague about the duties
and powers of the designated persons
and thus it is unclear howthe lawmight
afect typical parent-child relationships.
update: (supermodels) is the
one exception (to u.s. immigration
policy) that we all scratch our heads
about, said a Brookings Institution
policy analyst, speaking to Bloomberg
Businessweek in May. Foreign-born
sports stars and entertainers are fast-
tracked with american work permits
under one system, but supermodels
were excluded fromthat and must thus
compete (successfully, it turns out) with
physicists and nuclear engineers to earn
visas among the 65,000 slots available
only toskilled workers with college
degrees.as such, around 250 beauties
are admitted every year. (The most
recent attempt to get supermodels their
own visa category was championed in
2005 and 2007 by, appropriately, then-
u.s.-Rep. anthony Weiner of newyork.)
In lytle, Texas, in May, just 33 people
voted for candidates for three openings
on the school board, including the only
voter who cast a ballot in district 1.
Christina Mercado was the 1-0 winner,
but someone else voted for her. Mercado
cannot vote for district 1 candidates
because she does not live there, and
neither does the one candidate who
opposed her. However, according to
Texas law, Mercado can legally represent
district 1 on the school board.
POLICE REPORT
Rewarding the Breast disguises: (1)
an april crime report in san Francisco,
noting that a female driver had rammed
another car in a parking-space dispute,
noted that the victimgave ofcers little
help. The man could not tell ofcers the
model car that hit him, and certainly
not a license plate number, but he
was able to give a detailed description
of the suspects cleavage. no arrest
was reported. (2) Colombian prisoner
giovanni Rebolledo was serving a
60-year sentence (as a member of
thelos Topos gang charged with
extortion, kidnapping and torture) when
he escaped and decided on an extreme
identity change in order to move about
in the country. He becameRosalinda,
complete with, according to Colombia
Reports news service, impressive
breast implants, but nonetheless was
identifed in May in a routine trafc stop
and arrested.
In Kobe, Japan, in May, an
unemployed, 32-year-old man carried
out a minor theft (stealing a wallet from
a parked scooter) apparently just to
be locked up in the world famous city.
Besides being the home of Kobe beef,
it is acclaimed for its French, Chinese
and octopus cuisines, and in fact, Kobes
nagata Ward Precinct is renowned
for the special gourmet boxed meals
prepared by local bento shops, delivered
daily to prisoners, which the thief said
was foremost on his mind.
More Time needed on the Firing
Range: In May, an Orlando sentinel
columnist demanded a federal
investigation into the 2010 police killing
of Torey Breedlove in Orlandos Pine
Hills neighborhood, noting that killing
the unarmed Breedlove somehow
required 137 shots, with cops missing
on at least 115. The columnist added
that the Justice department is currently
investigating a Cleveland, Ohio, case in
which local police killed two unarmed
men but coincidentally also required
137 shots. (In both cases, the ofcers
were exonerated after local investigators
determined the ofcers believed the
suspects were armed.)
CRME DE LAWEIRD
Whitby, u.K., town councilman simon
Parkes, 58, confessed to a reporter in
June that he had had an extramarital
afair in fact, an extraterrestrial
extramarital afair with the 9-foot-
tall Cat Queen, and that she had borne
hima child. Parkes said the Cat Queen
is biding her time until technology is
available to bring her and the child to
earth. said Parkes, There are plenty of
people in my position who dont choose
to come out and say it because they are
terrifed it will destroy their careers.
Parkes said his wife knows about his
periodic meetings with the Cat Queen
and is very unhappy, clearly.
RECURRING THEMES
least Competent Criminals: shaun
Paneral was questioned by police in
Carlsbad, n.M., in May, on a loud-
music complaint and, concerned that
he already had an outstanding arrest
warrant, gave his name as shaun Paul.
Paneral thus became the most recent
perp to choose his alias badly. shaun
Paul, whoever he is, is also wanted by
police in newMexico, and Paneral was
arrested for the false Id.
Its good to Be a dog in the First
World: The British company Paw
seasons has created a holiday for dogs
(surely to appeal to guilt-ridden owners
who leave thembehind on their own
holidays) priced at the equivalent of
$73,000, consisting of a private suite for
two weeks, with dog-friendly Hollywood
movies, trips to the beach, surfng
lessons, spa and grooming treatment
(including pedicure) by Harrods, outfts
fromlouis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta, and
Mulberry, and the piece de resistance
a personal dog house created in the
image of the owners own house.
THE JESUS AND MARYWORLD TOUR
Recent Public appearances: norwalk,
Conn., in May (Jesus in an ink smear
on a page of the newspaper The Hour).
saugus, Mass., March (Jesus on a
drop cloth in a home). Bradenton,
Fla., February (Jesus in profle on a
carton of Corona beer). Halifax, nova
scotia, March (Jesus in a knot of wood
on furniture in a store). san antonio,
december (Jesus on a tortilla shell
an itemon which he has appeared
previously at other sites). Herne Bay,
england, October (Jesus on a patch of
mold behind a refrigerator). Phoenix,
June (Jesus in a smudge on the foor
at sky Harbor International airport).
northumberland, england, March (Jesus
in the condensation on a windshield).
Brooklyn, Ohio, February (Jesus in bird
droppings on a windshield). W
COMMUNITYACTIVISM
Despite Chicagos recent crisis of gang-related street
murders, the Roseland Community Hospital in a
tough south-side neighborhood is on the verge of
closing because of fnances, and community groups
have been energetically campaigning to keep it open.
Joining civic leaders in the quest is the Black Disciples
street gang, whose co-founder Don Acklin begged
in June for the hospital to remain open, explaining,
Its bad enough were out here harming each other.
Besides wounded gang members needing emergency
care, said Acklin, closing would amount to genocide
because of all the innocent people exposed to crossfre.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The authority gures in your life may
know whats up, at least this week. Its
probably painful to hearespecially
from those you often resentthat one
of your dreams isnt feasible, at least
in its current form. But this isnt just
tyrannical naysaying; for once you and
your local despots should be on the
same pageeveryone wants to see this
particular dream come to fruition. The
problem: youve gotten so used to doing
things (pardon the clich) outside the
box that it never occurred to you that
this particular goal might be more easily
and abundantly realized by playing by
the rules, instead of bending them.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Packrat youre not, exactly. But you
do like to save things, or perhaps more
accurately, safeguard them. Somewhere
in your garage, attic, basement, shed,
or rented self-storage space, treasures
abound. As without, so within: The way
you organize your stuff reects the way
you deploy internal treasures. Lately,
thats meant that the more rare or valu-
able they are, the less they get used.
It might not be time to whip out that
antique furniture, those vintage plates,
or all those mint-condition vinyl LPs.
But it is time to venture into the walk-in
freezer of your soul and start thawing
the softest, most tender parts of your
heart. Youll need them soon.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
How many elephants will you need?
Let me explain my question. Shortly
after they opened the Brooklyn Bridge
in 1883, a rumor about its imminent
collapse triggered a panicked stampede
that killed 12 people. Fears about its
instability persisted until 1884, when
P.T. Barnum paraded across the bridge
with 21 elephants and 17 camels, to
demonstrate its soundness. Fascinating
folklore, and relevant, too: You know
where youre going. You even know how
to get there. Yet you hesitate, while your
friends and allies march whole herds of
heavy animals across the bridge to your
next chapter, just to prove to you its
possible. Wont you join them, already?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Narcissism isnt a usual Piscean vice.
But your persistent attempts to under-
stand yourself and how youre perceived
by the world could be interpreted as
unbridled vanity. Even though I know
its not egotism, I still recommend you
temporarily quit your extended mirror-
contemplations. Stay away from pol-
ished surfaces, lengthy, self-analytical
journal entries, and teary, soul-search-
ing monologues to your therapist or
condantes this week. Its not that you
should cease trying to fathom your own
depths, only that you shouldnt try so
hard. This week, youre most likely to
see yourself most clearly when youre
not actually looking.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Sports cars, motorcycles, ATVs,
skates: whatever an Aries can use to
get there faster, he will. Explain to any
member of your tribe that the journey
is usually way more important than the
destination, and shell reply: Yes, and
I like my journey to be very fast and
exciting. This week that enviable atti-
tude is your worst enemy. Slow down.
Take every chance you get to pull off
the road, take scenic photographs, pick
owers, and pee in the bushes. I shiver
to think of all the intoxicating treasures,
door-opening secrets, and subtle keys to
new intensities of love that youll miss if
you dont.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
A Madagascan buttery apping
its wings could catalyze weather pat-
terns that result in a destructive North
American hurricane. Its unlikely, sure
but I want you to understand its pos-
sible, so you dont underestimate your
own ripple effect. This week, even
your tiniest actions are likely to
trigger eminently unpredictable
compound reactions, to an epic
scale. Everything you put out
therefrom dollars to offhand
ideas to works of artcan (and
probably will) go on to inuence
countless people in ways you can
never know. Dont be paralyzed
by the unknowable consequences
of your choices; be activated by
them. This weeks actions will
return to you eventually, essen-
tially the same, but so magnied
and transmuted you might not rec-
ognize them. In other words: Be
good, and the universe will even-
tually be very, very good back.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Out of all the signs in the zodi-
ac, I understand you the least,
Gemini. I adore you; my many
Gemini friends are universally
engaging, sweet, and popular,
amongst many other ne quali-
ties. But youre also as hard to
quantify and pin down as swamp
gas. Your unpredictability can be
exciting and entertainingbut
its also a little scary to those youd
like to be closest to. Dont clue me
or most people in; we enjoy the
mystery of your occasional seem-
ing randomness. But the level of
trust and intimacy you crave can
only be achieved by sharing the
secret of your motivations. Are
you ready for that deeper love? Go
get it, now that you know how.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Many rich people dont know how to
spend their wealth. They end up squan-
dering vast sums on ridiculous things
that bring nobody pleasure, succor, or
rich experience, not even themselves.
Ironically, most poor people know exact-
ly what theyd do with a cool million, if
they could get their hands on it. Perhaps
this concept is in the same league with
the aphorism, Youth is wasted on the
young. Do you feel lucky? You should.
Unlike so many, you know precisely how
to use exactly what youve got, wheth-
er its beauty, cash, or a fast car. This
week, enjoy your wealth, without worry-
ing about acquiring more; youre already
richer than almost everyone else.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Perversely, the nature of your skepti-
cism runs thus: the more you want to
believe something, the less likely you
are to actually take it on faith. Because
youre aware that your own needs or
desires might cloud your judgment,
you resist indulging them. I admire this
tendencydespite the fact that it prob-
ably makes your life much more com-
plicated and difcult than if you could
just be blindly loyal to some appealing,
unproven concept. However, dont take
this attitude to an unhealthy extreme;
everything you most want to believe is
not automatically wrong. This week,
consider the possibility that some of the
things you desperately want to be true
actually are, and give them all the ben-
et of the doubt.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Your realism has run amuck. Youve
let your firm grip on practical consid-
erations become a stranglehold. Its
probably quite important to you, when
conceiving and planning your dreams
and goals, that you keep them within
the realm of the achievable. But dont
underestimate your ability to set prec-
edents by rule-breaking or, better yet
rule-remaking. Review all the tours de
force youve planned for yourself over
the past month. Then up the stakes.
Take them at least one and as many as
three steps further than youd original-
ly planned. Why aim low? Shoot for the
highest visible target. Odds are, youll
hit it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Oscar Wilde was right: Give a man
a mask and hell tell you the truth.
Sometimes its easier to get at those
deep, difcult bursts of honest revela-
tion when youre partially occluded from
them. Your trouble is that youve been
trying to tackle your hardest lessons
head-on. When things get too painfully
intense, people shut down; their emo-
tions atline. Dont put yourself, or any-
one else, in that position. Instead, write
stories, act st out, or talk it through
using sock puppets, as ridiculous as
those things sound. Being silly isnt so
bad: If you can manage to laugh at any
time while dealing with the hard stuff,
youre doing well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Free-thinking you may be. Rebellious
genius you often are. But wholesale
antagonistic prick youre not, usually.
Dont be an asshole and persist out of
principle. You justly resent intrusion
into what you consider sacrosanct head-
space. Unfortunately, this week youre
especially liable to interpret well-meant
advice, cautionary tales, or even offers
of aid as undesired meddling. Yes, only
you have the right to police your own
mind. But every sheriff needs deputies.
Let your trusted fellows have some say
over what youre up to and where youre
going these days. Youre likely to do it
better and get there faster with their
help, believe it or not.
