Feedback Breaking Dawn

Regarding Tara Murtha’s cover story about getting prostitutes help instead of jailing them: I’m glad this women finally cleaned up. However, most of us mature ES T U IT T S G PRO ORK. JAIL IN D O ES N T' W P escorts are not EE U RT KTS ? O C S W N T R EE CA N DAO FF T'H E S addicts, we are THA UR M T H EM BY TARA single moms with collegeaged kids, who can’t support ourselves by working at Walmart, and rather not deal with an abusive spouse. Why are the Johns never thrown in jail? It’s ironic to think these women would stop if they had no services. Until we stop prosecuting consenting adults in private, then their is no compassion. Pimps should get 25 to life, and Johns should pay fines not to the county court but to the victims and be ordered to do community service in women’s shelters. The women should get services, they are victims whether they are 17 or 44. AUGUST 4 -10, 2010 • PHIL ADELPHIAWEEKLY.COM

So let me get this straight you as a woman thought it was appropriate for an article on prostitution to have a beautiful women decked out in sexy lingerie pose as a prostitute on your cover and in pictures in the article itself in which the article itself talks about the degradation and substance abuse and the hypocrisy of only busting the prostitutes and not their clients. In addition, I won't mention the six pages of ads for whorehouses you have in the back of your paper. I'm not particularly opposed to prostitution, but the cognitive dissonance and hypocrisy of you and your staff is stunning. Why not admit the article was really an ad for your back pages and all the pimps running the hos? I guess this shows that women can be just as exploitative and sexist as any man. GARETH

Regarding Jacob Lambert’s column about the solar-powered BigBelly trashcans in the city:

While your article on BigBelly trashcans certainly made a good point or two, you pretty much just derided the trashcans without speaking about any of the particulars involved with them. You failed to mention that those cans hold

much more trash than ordinary cans, saving the city money in the amount of times they need to be emptied. That was essentially the sole purpose for the cans, and they’re still exponentially saving the city money as long as theyre in use. With something like BigBellys, you pay for it one time, but the savings don’t just come in the first year of use and disappear, they’re there for the life of the cans. That’s when the savings should be added up. Why are they a waste of funds? You provided no example. Instead, you mocked them without specifying why you personally are so unhappy with the cans. Basically, Big Bellys soiled Greenworks because, uh, the Daily News said so? That’s not investigative reporting, my friend. ANDREW

Critical Pass

Regarding Brian Freedman’s review of Munk & Nunn: You behaved like a coward at Munk & Nunn. Yes, the chef was overbearing, rude even. But you are a bunch of liars! Why not tell the waitress what was wrong with the meal? She asked! Why couldn’t you have told the chef what you didn’t like about his food? He asked! I understand that no one wants to have an unpleasant confrontation (which would be really unprofessional) but it seems to me the guy really cares, is trying to figure out why his restaurant is failing and is under a great deal of stress. Don’t you think you could have put yourself out to help him a little bit. Its not like you were kinder and gentler for having gone home to contemplate. You just hid behind your review, like a coward. At its best, a restaurant is a dance between restaurateur and guest. The host proposes the experience, it is up to the guest to accept or reject the experience offered. Without honest feedback from guests how is an owner or chef to know what his guests actually experience. HERMAN

Not a Pretty Picture

Three years and $14M later, the city ends its video-support contract with Unisys. Now what? By Aaron Kase akase@philadelphiaweekly.com

However, since most of the cameras are already in place, James says the city could lay the remaining cable itself, so it canceled the contract with Unisys. “The more we got involved first hand, I just thought it was easier for us to do,” James says. “We stopped their work around 23rd of November.” Unisys declined to comment on the matter and referred all questions to

can go toward equipment and software since the DOT employees doing the work are already on the city payroll. “They’re coming online every day,” James says of the cameras. In fact, 10 have been brought online since midJune. James projects that all cameras will work by November, although the city made the same claim last year— and the year before.

The cameras should be a valuable tool for law enforcement. Video recordings have been an ever-increasing component of police investigations, notably in the Sabina Rose O’Donnell case, when a Northern Liberties waitress was found raped and murdered in early June. Footage captured from a number of private security cameras helped identify suspect Donte Johnson. There hasn’t been such a high-profile capture yet using the city’s own camera system, although the police do claim positive IDs on shootings, burglaries and other crimes. “It’s not the end of all; just another tool,” says PPD Lieutenant Tom Woltemate, a 29-year veteran who runs the camera room at the Roundhouse. “Everything helps.” He says it’s too early in the cameras’ deployment to provide numbers on how many criminal cases they have affected. One huge screen in the front of the camera room shows 16 live images at once, while a handful of officers watch dozens of other monitors that can call up any one of the functioning cameras. Officers use joysticks to pan, tilt and zoom, rendering small signs down the street easily viewable. The cameras are scattered throughout the city, placed in areas requested by district captains. “They know where crime patterns are,” Gaittens says. North Broad Street is well-covered, with one or two cameras placed at every intersection through Temple’s campus, and others on side streets from 12th to 16th. Other heavily monitored areas around the city include Sixth Street in Northern Liberties and the 52nd Street commercial corridor in West Philly. The police can also view cameras operated by SEPTA, the Streets Department and PennDOT, which provides roughly 1,000 additional eyes on the street, Woltemate says. The city still wants to install more cameras to increase the number to 250, with the hope of someday reaching 500. James says a bid could go out by the end of the month for companies to hang additional cameras. But first, the current system needs to be fully armed and operational, a status that has has proved elusive for years now. “It’s beyond me,” Woltemate says on getting more cameras online. “We’ll have to wait on the city.” n

James. The city’s original contract with Unisys signed in 2007 was for $8 million, but eventually ballooned to more than $13 million. This year, James says the city has an additional $1 million budgeted for the project, all of which

A u g u s t 1 1-17, 2 01 0

sive, physical fiber-optic network needed to be installed. “We have to run fiber-optic cabling to cameras, have to install switching and fiber out in the field,” James says. “It takes people, time and equipment to get all that stuff done.”

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY

Ever feel like you’re being watched? Pick your nose, jaywalk or buy a dime on the street at your own peril because shops, banks, gas stations and other establishments have blanketed the city with video surveillance, not to mention the cameras at traffic lights, highways, toll booths and mounted on planes that search for speeders from above. As soon as you step out of your door, rest assured that someone is watching. But not the police. After three years and $14 million, the Philadelphia Police Department’s camera system still doesn’t work properly. There are 208 police cameras in various hotspots around the city, hanging from streetlights or light poles. But as of last week, 46 cameras remain nonfunctional, says Joe James, the city’s deputy chief information officer. Those 46 are covered in plastic garbage bags, exactly as useful as the bags’ normal contents. The city’s original plan called for 250 cameras to be up and running by the end of 2008, with an option for an additional 250 for 2009. The Blue Bell, Pa.based IT firm Unisys was contracted for the installation, maintenance and support of the video system. But technical problems plagued the project from the start, and last November the city quietly ended its contract with Unisys. Workers from the city’s Division of Technology have taken over efforts to get the system up and running. After shelling out more than $13 million to Unisys for work that still hasn’t been completed, the city figures it can get the job done by itself. The reason for all the delays, city officials say, is the original design of the network was based on the faulty assumption that wireless technology could carry the data from cameras to police headquarters. “At first it was supposed to be a totally wireless system,” says Deputy Police Commissioner Jack Gaittens. “Then we found out that we just couldn’t because of size of buildings and city infrastructure.” “This was fairly new, virgin territory,” James adds. “No one had done a new, wireless scale they were proposing. It was based on engineering, not a real proven solid track record.” The wireless network could not handle the bandwidth the cameras needed, and the signal was often blocked by the El structure and downtown buildings. To handle the system’s demands, an expen-

An LGBTQ book is banned from a public library. Where will the conservative agenda take us next? By Randy LoBasso feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

attacked and called for the firing of Kevin Jennings, former director of the GLSEN and current assistant deputy secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. Beck took issue with Jennings’ policies of promoting tolerance toward homosexuals in public schools, among other now-defunct conspiracies. Controversy over Revolutionary Voices was first propagated by Linda Harvey, founder of Mission: America, a nonprofit ministry that states “All that can save [America is] … the blood of Jesus Christ.” Harvey cited Revolutionary Voices in her 2002 article titled, “The World According to PFLAG [Nonprofit group Parents, Families, & Friends of Lesbians and Gays]: Why PFLAG and Children Don’t Mix Unless you happen to like child abuse (sic),” which mainstreamed criticism of the book. Along with banning books that have already been approved by GLSEN—“A growing, wellfunded pro-homosexual organization which advocates the practice of dangerous sexual behaviors by children and adults,” according to Mission: America—these conservative groups are dedicated to the elimination of gay-straight alliance clubs within high schools and restructuring sexual education curriculums. Mission: American believes sex-ed should teach that the homosexual lifestyle “may well reduce life expectancy” and “involves high levels of promiscuity.” It also describes schools’ anti-homosexual-bullying policies as the equivalent to “a totalitarian regime of mental reprogramming.” Another Linda Harvey article, titled “A ‘Safe’ Place to Learn About Homosexual Sex,” warns parents of community centers where children often go after school to keep out of trouble. “Your sixth grader would be welcomed there by adult volunteers and staff, and allowed to socialize with high school and college age ‘gay’ youth,” she writes. Banning books is not listed on 9.12’s official mission statement. Nor are anti-homosexual policies of ending tolerance in schools a part of Beck’s nine principles and 12 values (9.12’s Haney tells us he’s never even heard of NARTH). These issues just fall under the same conservative umbrella. The fact that a librarian put the goals of NARTH and Mission: America above official policy is a sign of events to come—sex-ed reform, the elimination of gay-straight alliance groups and after-school community organizations— should the legitimization of Mission: America and NARTH persist. For individuals so apparently enthralled with the Constitution, it’s especially hypocritical to participate in censorship at the local governmental level. If Burlington County allows these bans to stand, this is just the beginning. It could set the precedent for the rest of these bigoted agendas to be carried out in communities around the country. n

And banning books is just the the banning was the independent work of concerned tip of their agenda. citizens. Back in April, Burlington County, N.J., banned the book Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology, edited by Amy SonRevolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer nie, from its public library shelves. The School Anthology was banned in Burlington County, Library Journal once named the anthology N.J.’s public libraries. one of the best books for high schoolers, and the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) calls the book “the first creative resource by and for queer and questioning youth of every color, class, religion, gender and ability.” It was banned by Burlington County Library Director Gail Sweet despite the lack of any formal challenge to the book’s existence. Sweet says she made the decision after Beverly Marinelli— reported by the Inquirer as a “grandmother” and member of Fox News pundit Glenn Beck’s 9.12 Project—complained to Sweet about the publication’s existence. Emails recently obtained by the New Jersey American Civil Liberties Union show Sweet and library commission member Patrick Delany quick to comply. On May 3, Sweet sent a message to library staffers, asking: “How can we grab the books so they never, ever get back into ccirculation (sic).” Sweet later wrote by email to Marinelli: “As the copies that are checked out return, we will take them out of circulation.” Sweet would cite “child pornography” as the reason for her executive decision (which allowed her to go over the head of Island Trees v. Pico, a U.S. Supreme Court decision asserting that “local school boards may not remove books from school libraries simply because they dislike the ideas contained in those books”). The National Coalition Against Censorship also found that Delany’s name “appeared on and then disappeared from a local 9.12 group member list earlier this spring.” The history of conservative voices against Revolutionary Voices and publications like it is long as it is often infuriating. Groups such as Mission: America and the National Association of Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) have been decrying the contents of Revolutionary Voices since its 2000 publishing. (Oh, and if NARTH sounds familiar, it’s because George Rekers, who used to be on the “The media put two and two [9.12 and censorship] board of directors, was recently caught in a Florida together and said, ‘OK.

Partners in Crime Northern Liberties revives its Town Watch. By Tara Murtha tmurtha@philadelphiaweekly.com I recently read an eye-opening article about the “tidal wave” of crime plaguing Northern Liberties. The article listed rapid gentrification as a likely contributor to the problem. “Criminals view Northern Liberties as an area where they can prey upon new residents,” said one resident interviewed for the story. “We’re on the edge of two worlds.” The “two worlds” are Old City and North Philly, areas of the city that residents say keep cops at the 6th and 26th districts—the two districts that split Northern Liberties down Poplar Street— occupied. Matt Ruben, NoLibs neighborhood advocate for the last decade, was quoted explaining the problem. “On the weekends,” Ruben says, “many officers from the 6th District are detailed to Old City and Columbus Boulevard— both swarming with popular nightclubs. Meanwhile, the majority of officers from the 26th District are deployed to rougher neighborhoods north of Poplar Street.” In response to the crime wave, residents established a formal Town Watch. The article was published in PW in August 2005.

The 2005 Town Watch, which was

actually a resurrection of a 2003 group formed in response to muggings in which perps smashed victims in the head with a brick, petered out after a year or so. Now, after a rash of home invasions back in February, it’s been resuscitated. Ruben, now president of the Northern Liberties Neighbors Association, says the third time’s a charm. “For me personally, [the home invasions] reinforced the need to get it together,” he says. “They were con crimes. They knocked on the door and conned people into letting them in. These seemed to be the sort of thing that if you had Town Watch, you could make people more aware.” Although Ruben concedes these kinds of initiatives tend to be cyclical (“something happens and people get very on alert, they go out on a few patrols, things get safer, then things die down”), he believes there are several reasons this incarnation is more likely to stick. For starters, it’s being run by a team instead of one volunteer who is likely to burn out. Secondly, previous versions focused on simple foot patrols, and this group is already doing much more than that— including cataloguing all the security cam-

eras in the neighborhood, a project they say ultimately helped the 26th District arrest Donte Johnson, who confessed to killing resident Sabina Rose O’Donnell. Thirty-year-old engineer Celine McGee, one of the architects of the new Town Watch (along with Steve Silver and Amir Tahvildaran) says she walks the ‘hood looking for cameras all the time. She’s found 50 so far, and says there are more. She adds that residents are requesting information about where to buy and how to install cameras. “I would think people would be nervous about Big Brother, but [instead] people are like, ‘Let’s get more cameras up.’”

chimes in. “When I first moved here, there was a lot of stuff like car break-ins and home invasions. Now you hear a lot more about robbery and a lot more assaults,” she said. “[But] there’s always been stuff … I feel like every year something happens and people get riled up, and they’re like, ‘Something has to be done’ and it’s like, last year something needed to be done.”

A recent weekend morning, McGee is

sitting in the Random Tea Room with Katrina Mansfield, who handles most of the Town Watch’s digital presence. Mansfield worked as a graphic designer until she was brutally raped and assaulted in her Northern Liberties home by Derrick Cook in 2008. Mansfield had employed Cook, 15 at the time, to do odd jobs and she had let him into her house when he knocked and asked for a glass of water. Cook was recently sentenced to 20 to 45 years in prison for both the attack on Mansfield and for raping and beating (at gunpoint) a 23-year-old woman walking down Orkney Street. Mansfield manages the Town Watch’s Facebook and Google groups. Mansfield, still suffering from extensive injuries, says it’s hard for her to speak to crime trends in the neighborhood even though she’s been a resident for 15 years. “I think I was conveniently ignorant of crime,” she says. “I think a lot of people are ... who wouldn’t want to be? I can’t blame them.” Now her goal is to illuminate that kind of dangerous blind spot, spreading awareness. “We want to teach these young new residents about the crime that exists, how to stay safe. How to get involved in your community and why it’s a good idea,” Mansfield says. “Because that’s what NoLibs is. It’s not because Bart Blatstein built the Piazza,” she says, laughing. “These criminals, these thugs, these scumbags have been holding up people sitting on their stoop at night,” she says. “That’s like breaking into my house. I love to stoop.” “We need to stoop in groups,” nods McGee. Sue White, a resident for 17 years,

The new Town Watch has momentum. “What’s encouraging about this version is that we’ve already learned a lot from those past experiences,” says Ruben. “I’m optimistic that this will keep going.” The group has been meeting monthly since March—Mansfield and McGee say they’ve already recruited 150-200 members. They prioritize tasks like finding a specific contact at each Police Department district, developing a dedicated website, updating the map of cameras and attending the meetings of exemplary local town-watch groups like the lauded Chinatown group. They say they go on random foot patrols several times a week, though they’re reluctant to specify the exact times, locations and numbers. “Flashlights and cell phones are our weapons,” says Mansfield. Despite the press about crime in the area (which drives some of the regular posters over at Northernliberties.org bonkers) Ruben says the PPD is doing a great job—especially considering the obstacles. “As a civic association president, you kind of have to say the police are doing a good job,” says Ruben. “But in this case it’s actually true.” “I think the 6th and 26 is doing the best

job given the situation and frankly given being understaffed,” says Ruben. “The situation” Ruben is referring to is not only that the neighborhood is split along two overburdened districts, but that those districts each belong to different Detective Bureaus and Regional Operation Control (ROC) areas. What this ultimately means is that the 6th and 26th districts are on different radio bands. Residents worry that this situation creates a gap criminals can slip through. Officer Megan Fabrizio, Crime Prevention Officer of the 26th District, says that isn’t true because any criminal activity near the Poplar Street border goes out over the “J-band,” a citywide frequency. “It doesn’t affect coverage,” she says. “If we see something happen on the border, first thing we’re going to check with the 6th District, so we all share information, so we’re not doing two different things at once.” Still, the split districts, combined with the population explosion and increased foot traffic over the last few years, makes residents uneasy. “This may be a pipe dream, but I was hoping we could get our own police department,” says McGee, echoing the sentiment of many residents who would like to see either a cohesive police district or a substation like the one on South Street dedicated to the area. The bad news is that it is a pipe dream. “It’s not going to happen,” says Fabrizio. “We go all the way out to 10th Street, so there’s no way to reborder it. They’d have to do the entire city, they would have to move every district.” “Every neighborhood wants its own district, like Fishtown wants their own,” she continues. “It’s not because we broke up neigborhoods, that’s just how the city plan worked out.” What about a substation? “Probably never,” says Fabrizio. “For us to get a substation in Northern Liberties, they’d have to give us more manpower. We just don’t have enough cops to cover. If we could do it, we would.” Fabrizio says she welcomes a partnership with the new Northern Liberties Town Watch, but with a warning. “Just be really good eyes and ears, don’t be vigilantes, that’s the only thing we ask for. The more information we can get as officers, then we’ll be able to make arrests better that way,” she says. “We don’t want anyone going out there and getting hurt.” n

The music issue

Almost Drinking Age!

As PW’s Concerts in the Park turns 20, we look to seven acts who may very well play it in the years to come.

This summer marks the 20th year that we at Philadelphia Weekly will put on Concerts in the Park, our free Wednesday shows in Rittenhouse. It’s been quite a ride. In just the past five years, we’ve watched Kurt Vile & the Violaters scorch the park just before blowing up nationally. We’ve seen Man Man play to the largest audience we’ve ever had gather for our series—people were climbing trees to get a better view. Then, the very next year, Dr. Dog—fresh off appearances on Conan O’Brien and the best record of their career, Fate—packed ’em in even more; people were climbing onto the people who’d climbed the trees. It was mayhem. Of course, Dr. Dog had played the series before, in 2005, before they were the globetrotting superstars we’ve come to know them as. And though watching a band play to a packed park for free at the pinnacle of their popularity is pretty damn fun, it’s equally magical to watch the guys still undiscovered by the masses put their wares on display a few years before they pop. This year, R5 Productions’ Sean Agnew takes over the booking of the series, and we have a seriously bad-ass mixed bag. Brooklyn Indie/folk alt-country act Phosphorescent are just on the cusp of serious mainstream crossover. In 2009, they put out a well-received tribute to Willie Nelson, To Willie—their cover of “Reason To Quit” will make you an insta-fan. This year’s Here’s To Taking It Easy, released in May, scored a hefty 8.2 on Pitchfork, a B+ from the Onion A.V. Club, raves from the BBC, Mojo and the Guardian overseas, and is an easy front-runner for album of the year. They play tonight at 7. Subsequent weeks bring another Brooklyn act, A Place To Bury Strangers—whose music is much less intimidatingly-emo than their name suggests—and locals Drink Up Buttercup, whose stellar live show is not to be missed. Then there are the openers. Electroclash-ish girl duo GANG will get the dance party started for Phosphorescent this week. The Homophones bring their subdued Echo and the Bunnymen sound to next week’s show. And locals Governent Cheaze and Drink Up Buttercup close us out Aug. 25. It’s going to be a hell of a good time, and a perfect way to send off what’s turned out to be a wretchedly hot summer. As we say goodbye to the sizzle, we are looking to say hello to seven acts in Philly that have us abuzz here at PW HQ. Some of them are upand-comers who, by this time next year, will be playing national stages and getting press in national pages. Some have just written career-defining records just- or yet-to-be released. Others are breaking out on their own to do some inspiring solo work. Read about them. Listen to them. Watch them grow before your eyes. See you in the park on Wednesday. (Brian McManus)

His message tends other on the plow. to slip under the radar, hidden beneath sweet chord While those stories are imagined, Pryor still changes and plucky banjo. wants to return to historical songwriting, both in “Art is able to f ly in under a lot of the other the Greensboro project—which still needs another defenses we put up,” Pryor says. “There’s a noticefive or six songs—and in recounting other events able difference in reaction in me giving a spiel vs. yet untold. In particular, he’s interested in telling singing a song.” stories of migrant farmworkers, like mushroom It’s a lesson he learned firsthand when writing harvesters in Kennett Square: “That community about the untold story of Nov. 7, 1979, when a group has always been intriguing to me,” he says. But for of labor organizers in Greensboro, N.C., organized both his historical writing and imagined characan anti-KKK rally in a poor black neighborhood. ters, the goal is honesty. The details of the day are murky, but the Klan and a “Regardless of whether it comes across as true group of neo-Nazis united, and the police were told or fictional,” Pryor says, “it’s compelling and huto take an early lunch.

(Jeffrey Barg) “There are a lot of myths and stories that have been Scott Pryor spun off from this one event,” Pryor says. “A lot of red f lags f ly up when you try to talk about it.” So Pryor embarked on a project—inspired by Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska and Woody Guthrie’s songs about the Sacco and Vanzetti trial in the 1920s—to craft a collection of songs about the one event. “What I love about Nebraska is [Springsteen’s] ability to humanize serial killers,” Pryor says. “He tells these harrowing tales while maintaining a sense of compassion, and still not letting them off the hook.” Like Nebraska , Pryor’s songwriting lends itself to cinematic storytelling, with heartbreaking tales of epic journeys and human frailties. His songs aren’t so much played as they are passed on, with melodies that sound much older, dustier and worn than he is. While the Greensboro project is on the backburner, Pryor’s been busy this summer working on an EP to follow up last year’s stellar Theater for the Weary, a 12-song collection that deals with journeys and love. The Quiet Crosses EP, helmed by producer Devin Greenwood and Pryor’s crackerjack backing band the Common Sinners, includes the catchy westward road song “Lay Me Down” and

Noah "Xaphoon Jones" Beresin

Hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang have blown up fast. It wasn’t even two years ago that 19-year-old Chiddy Bang principals Noah “Xaphoon Jones” Beresin (he’s the DJ) and Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege (he’s the rapper) first met as freshmen at Drexel University. Fast forward 20 months and the Philly electro-rap duo has a bona fide hit single and viral video to its credit—the MGMT-sampling “Opposite of Adults”; plays sold-out shows in both the U.S. and Europe (particularly in the U.K., where their star shines especially bright); has toured with the likes of Clipse and Passion Pit; and has been working with such hip-hop luminaries as Pharrell and Q-Tip on their debut LP The Swelly Life, out this fall on Virgin/EMI. Not too shabby. “It’s crazy how fast it’s moving,” says Newark, N.J.-born Chiddy over the phone from a recording studio in London. “It’s really hard to grasp.” Chiddy Bang’s formula for success rests on Chiddy’s exuberant, accomplished flow and Xaphoon’s creative beats and innovative, indie-rock-friendly sampling—he’s drawn from the likes of Sufjan Stevens, Radiohead and Tom Waits tunes, among myriad others. Energetic and alive, their songs first turned heads last November when they issued their Swelly Express mixtape online—it documented their attempts to break into

the music business and featured early mentor/supporter Black Thought of the Roots on one track. Well before that, though, Chiddy Bang went through a rocky patch. The group started out in early 2009 as a four-piece live band with a guitarist and a drummer, but as the Germantown/ Mt. Airy-bred Beresin explains, “There was a period over the summer last year where everyone was kicked out and it was Chiddy’s solo project. The problem was that we all felt it was a band and Chiddy thought he was a rapper with some production and a live ensemble. And he was right. I was writing all the beats and he was writing all the lyrics and the other dudes, they worked hard as far as the shows, but they weren’t writing anything. “So I got a job as a cook at a summer camp, trying to get some money up and I came back in the fall and started doing my beats again and Chiddy’s manager approached me and said, ‘Your production was really instrumental and we’d like you to come back and have it be a duo.’ I was so torn. I was 18 years old, I’d put Drexel on pause, and I was trying to figure out what to do, and I was hungry to make music. So I went back, we put out the mixtape, and things blew up from there.

was going to be doing for the rest of my life,” she says. “It made as much sense to me as anything else.” It’s worked: Birdie Busch is probably Philly’s most beloved female musician, and her records have been critically acclaimed in theVillage Voice, the Nashville Scene and publications in between. Fred Knittel, WKDU Folkadelphia DJ and cofounder of Be Frank Records, says he became infatuated with her music on first listen to 2007’s Penny Arcade (Bar None Records). “We love Birdie’s music and attitude,” Knittel says. “Birdie loved our Phillycentric attitude … it just clicked. We love the city we are in and found a creative way to show it.” Birdie laughs when she recalls getting shy for a split second early on when she first started playing with trained musicians. “I thought, ‘Oh my god, I didn’t go to music school,’” she says. She got over it. “To me, that’s what rock ’n’ roll is.” The Bird spreads the word about finding and doing your own thing. A couple years ago, she guest taught at South Philly’s Music & Mentorship Program, where underprivileged kids learn about music and songwriting. She tried to give them a little something that would take them further than another neat chord progression. “I wanted to connect with them, so I was referencing pop culture this and that, whoever they’re into,” she says. “But after that I let them know: None of that shit matters, man.” (Tara Murtha)

Birdie Busch wants to give you something to hold on to. Really. That’s why she designed her new EP Everyone Will Take You In (Be Frank Records) to be available as both digital download and a limited edition 7-inch record tucked into an exquisitely designed package filled with photos, essays and other small treasures. EWTYI is a love letter to Philadelphia that includes “Joey,” a meditation on gentrification inspired by Geno’s Steaks, and a lush cover of Soul Survivor’s “City of Brotherly Love.” Birdie says it was important that the project replicate the “romantic quality” she experiences when bringing home a new, old vinyl score for her ever-growing record collection. “Even the way the type is laid out” is part of the experience, she says. “Then you’re listening to it, and it’s cyclical, you’re looking and listening. That doesn’t exist when you only own music as a file.” A relatively expensive and time-consuming endeavor, the project makes little sense except, of course, to Birdie. And that’s just fine. “As time goes by … I’ve learned what I like and value, and I need to be the guard of that,” says Birdie one recent morning over coffee near her home in West Philly. “I don’t expect anyone else to do it.” Intuition has guided Birdie from the beginning. “I started to play [guitar] and a week later I told my parents I had this feeling that this was what I

Chiddy’s my dude, but I think the reason we’ve stayed drama-free and really smooth is because we’re here to do the best we can at this and that comes first, before personal issues.” Indeed, there’s too much at stake to let any petty grievances get in the way. And far too much work to do. “When you’re a kid in your dorm and you’re like, ‘Yo, I wanna do this,’ you’re just thinking, like, ‘I’m just gonna make music and put it out and then boom, that’s it,’” says Chiddy. “I mean, you don’t know that you gotta deal with label shit and do radio promo and get samples cleared and keep building it up. It’s a whole lotta stuff and it’s happening fast, but it’s what we both really want” “I miss all my friends. I’m not in school anymore. It’s very alienating to pursue your dreams,” Beresin adds. “But as soon as we figured out where we could take this, we were like, ‘Let’s just see ...’ My ultimate goal is to get up enough money where I can buy a really huge property in Chinatown and make the greatest Philadelphia recording studio and have all kinds of artists coming through. I wanna call it ‘Boogie Down Chinatown.’ Mark my words! I’m always gonna lay my head down in Philly.” (Michael Alan Goldberg)

Mike Polizze’s Purling Hiss lives in the red.

Mike Polizze

“I wanted to do something ridiculous and over the top, recording in the red with the gain all the way up,” says Mike Polizze, explaining the guitar mayhem that defined Purling Hiss’ self-titled debut. A veteran of Philly’s psych boogie monolith Birds of Maya, Polizze began his solo project as a way to use up ideas that didn’t quite fit into the other band’s aesthetic. There are subtle differences between the two outfits, he says, if anything this magnificently loud and distorted can be said to be subtle. “Purling Hiss’ dynamic is like Birds of Maya with the bass and the drums as a foundation,” he says, adding that, as a oneman outfit, he’ll often pummel through eight or nine minutes of drum tracking to start, then layer on the bass, then add guitars and vocals. It’s at this final stage that things are likely to get crazy. For the epic “Almost Washed My Hair,” he says, “I pathed one guitar track to the right and one to the left, and sometimes purposely I just sort of did two totally different things just to see how it would come together. With the volume all the way up, just really raucous.” Purling Hiss came out in November 2009 on Chicago’s Permanent Records, too late in the year to make much critical headway, but it has since attracted some vocal fans. Doug Mosurock’s blog “Still Single” caught up with the debut a month after its release,

off the Kuf

noting “The trouble with year-end lists: records like this one, which come out quietly and without fanfare, and run the table on all of the others you’ve chosen. Had this record ... crossed my path even a few weeks earlier, it would have completely dominated. As such, this gets my highest recommendation: extremely thick, dense, wilded-out psychedelic hard rock.” Now just past the midpoint of 2010, Polizze has two new records in the works. Former Clockcleaner drummer Richie Charles Jr. has plans to release Hissteria— a monster of an album, recorded in 2009 and made of four sprawling, noise-inflected cuts—on his own Richie Records. Polizze’s friend Kurt Vile passed along some earlier, more song-structured Purling Hiss recordings to Jeremy Earl of super-hot Woodsist, and that label will be putting out Public Service Announcement . Timing on both these releases is still being worked out. A fall tour with Vile, and possibly a split single, are also being discussed, though nothing is set in stone. Meanwhile, Polizze is putting together a band and reworking his loose, four-tracked soundscapes for live performances. He’s also putting a bit more structure into his new songs, though not so much as to change the sound. “It’s always going to be a little sloppy,” he says. “The chaos is part of it.” (Jennifer Kelly)

A lot of those people you don’t see at live shows and vice versa, where the people coming out to live shows, you don’t see them at DJ/ MC shows. I’d love to bridge that gap.” Whatever happens, Kuf continues to take Pendergrass’ words to heart. “I always remind myself that you can’t let anything stop you if you wanna get somewhere. And as long as you have something dope and special to offer, you’ll be all right.” (M.A.G.)

with Gamble & Huff ’s Philadelphia International Records in his late teens, though the label never released any of his recordings. After that came a stint in the hip-hop group Subtle Ground, which for a time was signed and mentored by DJ Jazzy Jeff. Then came the hip-hop/rock fusion band BurnDown All-Stars, with which Kuf recorded three albums. In recent years he’s been fronting the hip-hop/soul collective the Hustle, and now, finally, Kuf’s dropping his solo debut, BoomBox Logic, on Drexel’s MAD Dragon Records in October. “I appreciate all the ups and downs I’ve had because it prepares you for everything,” says Kuf. “It can be very frustrating if things fall through, but it’s like, I definitely try to keep a positive outlook on everything and keep moving forward.” That positivity—along with sterling beats, rhymes and grooves—buoys Logic, which nods to late ’80s/early ’90s Golden Era hip-hop (particularly on the irrepressible “Sunny Philadel-

Some of the best career advice Kuf Knotz (aka Ty Green) remembers ever getting came a decade ago from the mouth of the late Philly soul giant Teddy Pendergrass, who told the budding rapper—who was just out of Harriton High—that he might want to steer clear of making music for a living. “I grew up with his son, so I was over at their house a lot, and when Teddy found out I was rhymin’ and starting to play out, the first thing he told me was, ‘Are you sure you wanna get into it? It’s a crazy, cutthroat, ridiculous business.’” Kuf laughs at the recollection. “I was like, ‘What?!’ But then he was like, ‘Stay focused and stay driven, and if you believe in what you’re doing, then no one can take that from you.’” Now in his late 20s, those words have stuck with Kuf through 10 years and plenty of twists and turns on his way to becoming a local mainstay and emerging national artist. Weaned on everything from hip-hop and gospel to the Dead Milkmen and the Sex Pistols, Kuf was briefly inked to a solo deal

resident ial aspirations

Bryn Mawr and Haverford smarties Post Post get mo’ meta with the release of their new EP. After two years, one lineup shuffle, one Spring Break minivan tour, and countless dorm basement and bar gigs, college wunderkinds Post Post are releasing their second EP, putting a professional sheen on their plucky, pop-dazzled rock. Residents is an earnest, four-track burst of guitar-driven indie, frosted over with ripples of synth and edged with clever, if cryptic, lyrics. If it sounds effortless, it’s a testament to the upstart determination of these twentynothing Bryn Mawr and Haverford students—Michelle Zauner (guitar, lead vocals), Kevin O’Halloran (bass, vocals), Marisa Helgeson (synth, vocals) and Casey Sowa (drums, vocals). They compare the production of the EP to “giving birth,” and lament that some of the EP’s “surrogate mothers” didn’t take the band and their ideas seriously. “I’ve learned that if you’re young and a girl you have to be a bitch to have anyone respect you,” Zauner says. Maybe as a consequence they’re a “really anal band,” obsessively involved in all parts of the EP’s production. They’ve held true to the DIY ethos of 2009’s Meta Meta , a scrappy but winning album recorded with “Garage Band and five mics” over two days in Bryn Mawr’s Multicultural Center. For all the recording booth rigmarole, Residents sounds remarkably unruff led, if a little sad: Zauner’s nose-crinkled, spitfire little-girl voice yearns and breaks as she sings of young heartbreak with wise-beyondher-years perspective. Inspired by the collapse of a personal relationship, Residents ’ four tracks explore “the ways people belong to each other, the way they structure relationships like homes,” she says. The process of writ-

ing, recording and polishing the EP was, she says, “cathartic.” The architecture trope is appropriate for a band whose first home was a Louis Kahn-designed post-apocalyptic hulk on Bryn Mawr’s campus, a dorm that doubled as practice space for the first few months of Post Post’s existence. Their next borrowed residence was the campus religious center, where they jockeyed for practice space with prayer groups and campus ministries. They now live together in Haverford but having a “room of one’s own” hasn’t made practicing any easier to schedule. As fulltime students with part-time jobs, they find time to practice “in the cracks of life,” O’Halloran says. In the meantime, these college transplants have found a home in the Philly music scene, at least temporarily. They express frustration with the city’s lack of small, all-age venues, (20-year-old Sowa was recently kicked out of a performance at Tritone) and its glut of hyper-vigilant towing companies (O’Halloran tells of an odyssey of rescuing the band’s van from an impound lot the night of a performance). Still, they’re considering staying in Philadelphia after graduation. But those decisions are still nine months off. A full album might be in their future but for now they’re so exhausted from Residents’ parturition they “can’t think of producing anything else right now.” “Talk to us in a week,” O’Halloran says. Post Post always has something else up their sleeves—be it a performance at the Girls Rock Philly summer camp or a dorm concert with 100 selfmade Jell-O shots. (Lauren Smith)

Black francis

Philly singer/songwriter John Francis records his major label debut at Johnny Cash’s famed Cabin Studio.

A u g u s t 1 1-17, 2 01 0 • 18

When John Francis played an as-closeto-hometown-as-it-gets show last week at Chaplin’s Music Cafe in Spring City, co-owner Dennis Coleman beamed with pride. “If you didn’t know this, [Francis] is a local boy done good,” he told the crowd. And he’s right. Francis, son of ministers raised singing ’round the church piano in rural Pennsylvania, just signed with Nashville-based label Dualtone Music Group and is readying to release his major label debut The Better Angels on Nov. 9. Better Angels was produced by John Carter Cash at the famed Cabin Studio built by Johnny Cash in ’78, then

converted to a studio in ’93 to begin the American Recordings series. To get a sound befitting what Francis calls the “legacy of royalty” crowned in that cabin over the years, Francis and John Carter cherry-picked a firecracker band that includes Nashville all-stars Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart, Lucinda Williams), Michael Rhodes (Steve Earle), Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo), Robby Turner (Johnny, Willie and Waylon) and Bob Britt (John Fogerty) as well as local musicians Ross Bellenoit, Chris Giraldi, Todd Erk and Rachael Yamagata. “[Recording] was laid back and slowpaced, license to let ideas f low,” Francis

says. “But at the same time it was surreal and larger than life to play in Johnny’s studio and with that band.” In the tradition of legendary American songwriters, Francis’ catalogue brims with characters either chasing or glimpsing the American dream—or f laming out and huffing its fumes the whole way down. When it comes to lyrics, Francis— winner of the prestigious ASCAP Sammy Cahn songwriting award for Better Angels track “Love Came to Me Dressed in Red”—brings a gun to the knife fight. The dexterity helps Francis command a room. “He’s no pussy on stage,” whispered a friend at the show. After

Chaplin’s got rowdy by listening-room standards—one drunk guy declared the U.S.A. the greatest country in the world and suggested another red-faced gent kindly leave if he disagreed—Francis calmed the crowd with “No One Here Gets Out Alive,” a song he co-wrote with John Carter about Johnny Cash’s dying words to his son. Once he’s got your attention, though, Francis is just as likely to beat back the brooding poetics with goodtime rabblerousing and playful peels of lapsteel, porch-stompers that say, Hey, since the walls are crumbling, we may as well burn down the barn. (T.M.)

For all his fabled one-liners, Groucho Marx made it a point never to work blue. That never stopped the Marx Brothers from peppering their films with innuendo-rich quips—comedy with a wink rather than a leer (as Don Draper would put it). But in 1934, the organization that would become the MPAA cracked down on sex, suggestive language and a host of other

Phosphorescent’s new Here’s To Taking It Easy shows the band conjoining the mournfulness of Pride (2007) with the Southern, booze-soaked vibe of To Willie (2009), their homage to Willie Nelson. The result is a rollicking road album packed with busted hearts, whining steel-guitars, lonesome saloon piano blues and the freight-hopping joy only a true rambler knows. From the getaway car glee of “It’s Hard To Be Humble (When You’re From Alabama)” to the post-bender, sunrise comedown of “The Mermaid Parade,” Phosphorescent have captured the sound of

Dam-Funk

Dam-Funk, who in real life goes by the name of Damon Riddick, makes excess work for him. His debut recording, Toeachizown, spanned five LPs or two CDs, 139 minutes of blissed out vamps and killer grooves that seemed, if not exactly concise, exactly the right amount to launch a phenomenon. Live, the Ambassador of Boogie Funk travels with full 1970s spacefunk regalia, wielding a Roland midi-keytar from behind heavy shades with Computer Jay on vintage Moog, J1 making beats on live drums and samples and negligee-clad back-up singers in tow. The sound is pure synth-washed decadence, unfolding in endless body-bumping grooves, a la late-1970s Prince or early 1980s Zapp. Jennifer Kelly 9pm. $10. With Master Blazter.

This collective of amateur and professional musicians leaves symphony halls behind in favor of more accessible venues like bars and cafes—or in this case, a BYOB art space and bookstore. The evening’s selections seem designed to honor woodwinds: The organization’s Philadelphia chapter will perform Mozart’s lilting Quintet for Clarinet and Strings (K. 581) and Jacques Ibert’s flamenco-flavored “Entr’acte” on flute and guitar. To round out the program, multi-instrumentalist and composer Daniel Peterson works his chilled-out jazz stylings on

Self-described as “uncomfortably moist,” their raunchy variety show doesn’t leave much to the imagination: Cabaret vixens perform the old shimmy and shake in Louise Brooks wigs and lacy lingerie while tuxedoed lads scandalize with their ribald jokes.

Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

PuppeTyranny! brings its trademark sock and marionette whimsy to J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan prelude, transposing the adventures of Peter from Edwardian London’s posh Kensington Gardens to Philly’s own urban Kensington. The troupe’s ragtag band of actors, musicians, puppeteers and Lost Boys patch together shadows, animation, live music and dance to bring to life the story’s various fantastical characters, including fairy queens and invisible flying goats. Peter is as strange a creature as any: Not yet the boy crocodile hunter of Disney fame, he’s

a downy newborn, escaped from his crib and convinced he’s a bird. Baby Peter’s dreamy after-hours adventures in the park are enough to push the old nostalgia button—even if our own childhood idylls involved more tube slides than immortal birds.

The term “math rock” might sound dated and unappealing—equations and formulas and what not—but these Chicago boys are taking their brand of weirdo, earworm rock in a folksy, pop-friendly direction. Where Tortoise border on jammy and boring, Maps & Atlases have crafted a beautiful debut LP of three-minute tunes with Perch Patchwork that each feel like a distinct moment of clarity.

The English Beat

Arriving hot on the heels of 2-Tone contemporaries Madness and the Specials, the English Beat’s 1980 debut I Just Can’t Stop It is perhaps the finest ska-revival album of the era, with bristling punk rhythms, infectious rocksteady melodies and provocative politics. Moderating tempos, greater experimentation and increasing musical sophistication marked their next two discs, highlighted by U.K. flop/U.S. hit, Special Beat Service, showcasing a poppier new wave mien. The move shattered the band, and singers Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger created the soul-pop General Public before breaking up and starting competing English Beats in America and overseas, respectively.

Cave

Though they call Chicago home, Cave were likely spawned by day-glo dragons who fucked in a swamp of LSD. The 13-minute slow-burning finale from their Psychic Psummer EP, released last year by Drag City, provides an accurate portrait of their aesthetic: full-throttle neoKrautrock grooves, Terry Riley inspired cosmic minimalism, peyote-cult chants and the swaggering, recklessness of Anglo-American heavypsychedelic rock. It’s only appropriate that we welcome them with our most reputable local delegates, Birds of Maya—arguably Philly’s nastiest apostles of gritty, thunderous, kick against the pricks rock ‘n’ roll—and Signals, a West Philly trio of sound scavengers who splice NYC’s 1980s punk-funk/no wave underground with post-industrial, sheet-metal schizophrenia. E.S.

“You’re up early!” says a woman wearing a fake bikini-top T-shirt. I learn later that it is “for breast cancer.” I stare at her, searching for something to say, but my brain is moving slowly. “Fuck it,” she says, flashing me a big smile. “Fuck it, is what I say.” We cheers. It’s 8 a.m. on a Monday in J.R.’s Saloon, on the corner of Norris and Aramingo. It’s the ideal neighborhood bar, with a taxidermied antelope wearing a cowboy hat watching over the pool table. Everyone is singing along to classic rock, and the place is pretty busy. As one of the marginally employed masses, there are a lot of times I’m jealous of my friends with 9-to-5s. They have regular paychecks, and phone calls to their parents sound a lot less pathetic. But as they wake up bleary-eyed to face yet another case of the Mondays, I figured I’d celebrate my independence with a couple of crack-of-dawn Miller Lites while talking to other victims of the recession. I convince my friend Dan to be my muscle/wingman so I don’t seem like a weirdo. We meet up a little after 6 a.m.— him fresh from a morning run, me fresh from a doughnut—and head to J.R’s. What I expected at 7 a.m. was a couple of down-on-their-luck drunks looking to share stories of their glory days, maybe a sad sack or two milling around, eagerly waiting for the gate to open. But Dan and I are clearly the sad sacks: For the first few minutes we’re the only people there. Two men wander in and sit as far away from us as they can. They are not looking to chat, so we watch the morning news and sip our beers. At 7:30, a pink-shirted, pink-visored woman and a spikey-haired guy friend come in, and they bring the party. The woman greets Ronnie the bartender effusively, then heads to the jukebox to put on “I Feel Free” by Cream. A steady stream of customers starts showing up. “Hail, hail, the gang’s all here!” yells a guy in a Phillies jersey. They’re happy, but a little suspicious of us. I watch as Ronnie pours a fancy looking shooter at the other end of the bar. “You want to try it?” Ronnie asks me. “It’s only $1.50.” The lady in pink, who’s been ordering them all morning, assures me they taste just like black jelly beans. I hate black jelly beans, but I try the shot anyway, and it’s pretty good. It reminds Dan of cough syrup. With no ATM around, Dan goes out on a hunt for more cash. Now alone, I try to make conversation. Listening carefully for an in, I eavesdrop on Phillies Jersey

Guy, who’s talking about his son. “‘Kids don’t even know what ‘one foot on the ice’ means.” I don’t know what that means, either. I try to ask, but they move on. A guy named Petey tells me I look bored. “I saw a woman talking to her dead husband. The box of ashes was right there!” he says, pointing to my drink. “‘I got that washin’ machine you wanted,’ she says, ‘and that dryer you wanted,’ and then she says, ‘I got the blow job you wanted, too!’ and she blows the dust all over the place!” I try to return with a joke, mangling the accented punchline (“ ... but you fuck one goat!”), and Petey is quiet for a second. He gives me a delayed laugh, bums a cigarette and, as he walks out, gets heckled by the other customers. “You’re a smooth one, Petey!” Laughing along with them, I inwardly bemoan my awkwardness. I head to the bathroom, leaving my cigarettes on the bar. When I return, I think a few are missing. I don’t say anything. Dan gets back with money. I feel pretty drunk. Too little sleep, too many Miller Lites, not enough breakfast. The patrons trickle out. The breakfast rush, it seems, is over. We watch Let’s Make A Deal, on which a woman in a banana costume wins a trip to Aruba. It’s a little after 10 a.m. “Let me get a quick shot,” Dan says. I see they have Redbreast, a hard-to-find Irish whiskey that can be found at places like Village Whiskey for $22 a pop. “It’s six bucks a shot,” Ronnie tells us. Dan orders. We quietly finish our drinks and head out into the bright, mid-morning light. n

It was a good sign when MGMT tapped cult/experimental musician Pete “Sonic Boom” Kember (of Spacemen 3 and Spectrum) to helm the new album. Together, their sonic risks paid off handsomely in another phenomenal album that leaves über-accessible, dancey singalongs behind for dark, thickset psych-pop occasionally reminiscent of the Flaming Lips or Syd Barrett. This is evolution of the highest order. M.A.G.

From Hal to Henry Young actors bring an irresistable, playful energy to Henry V. By J. Cooper Robb jrobb@philadelphiaweekly.com

26

Who says you need to train for decades to perform Shakespeare? Under the tutelage of hypercreative director Aaron Cromie, a group of student actors brings youthful energy to Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre’s joyously theatrical and thoroughly exciting production of Shakespeare’s Henry V. The nine student actors, members of PST’s Classical Acting Academy, have spent the last six weeks immersed in Shakespeare, and the results are impressive to say the least. While the performances don’t quite unearth the musicality of Shakespeare’s text, the director wisely doesn’t try to put on a text-based production. Instead, as in his magnificently original staging of The Fantasticks at now-defunct Mum Puppettheatre, Cromie’s Henry V is a charmingly theatrical affair. It takes full advantage of the cast’s youthful exuberance, and the director is clearly very skilled at getting strong performances from young actors. Cromie sets the play in a prep-school classroom (realized in full detail by scenic designer Faezeh Faezipour with maps, scientific charts, desks and a blackboard used to announce locations in the play) where the students are preparing to take an exam. As part of their lesson, their teacher (who performs the part of the Chorus and is portrayed by Nick Martorelli) has the students adopt roles from Henry V. The last of the Bard’s English history plays (with the exception of Henry VIII, which may or may not have been written entirely by Shakespeare), Henry V paints a portrait of a hero king intent on reclaiming what he believes is rightfully his: France. Needless to say, the French aren’t wild about this idea, and when Henry (Michael Gregory) shows up with an army beset by illness, the haughty French are confident they will repel the English with ease. Not so. Cromie has emerged as one of the city’s most original directors. In addition to Henry V and Fantasticks, he helmed Azuka Theater’s powerful staging of The Long Christmas Ride Home and Lantern Theatre’s playful production of Scapin. A master at innovation, in Henry V he shows his skill at getting strong performances from young actors. As created by Shakespeare and performed by Gregory, Henry is Superman with a crown. He’s charm-

ing, patriotic (almost to the point of xenophobia), clever, athletic, handsome, and, when he isn’t threatening to murder every Frenchman alive, chivalrous. Gregory embraces all these qualities with ease, and, some minor articulation problems aside, he makes a winning king. PST’s production doesn’t bother much with the inner workings of Henry’s mind, his motives or his level of sincerity. Is he going to war because he has been insulted by the French, to regain lost territory and prove his worth as king or is it a tactic to blunt opposition at home? We’re never sure, but he certainly is charming. What Henry doesn’t do here is completely dominate the production, a very good thing considering the quality of the supporting cast (most of whom switch in and out of several roles) and the innovation of the production. Brian K. Elam is fabulous as barfly Pistol, and Bethany Ditnes shows impressive versatility playing both the beleaguered French herald and Princess Katherine. Victoria Rose Bonito steals every scene she’s in as Katherine’s blushing maid, who hesitantly serves as translator for Henry and the Princess, who speaks only French; it’s especially true in the scene where Henry, who speaks only English, must rely on the maid to communicate his charm secondhand, woo Katherine and unite their nations. The Archbishop of

Canterbury is similarly well-cast; the hugely promising Amanda Bernhardt argues for Henry’s claim to France using transparencies on an overhead projector, and the production is full of other such charming visual jokes. Drinks in a tavern are served in Gatorade bottles, and when the English show up for battle, they’re equipped with football-gear armor and armed with golf clubs, baseball bats, lacrosse sticks and tennis racquets (appropriate, considering the Dauphin demeans Henry earlier in the play with a gift of tennis balls). The famous battle of Agincourt is a rambunctious event; overhead lamps sway madly from side to side and paper airplanes are employed to divebomb the French position. Although the production rides on its youthful energy, the young cast performs the occasional serious moments and dramatic scenes surprisingly well. When a disguised Henry engages his troops on the eve of battle, the actors capture the sense of dread and excitement as the men (several of whom are portrayed by actresses in plaid schoolgirl skirts) await a day that will bring either death or victory. In this moment, you can feel the camaraderie of a cast that has spent the last six weeks together immersed in the world of the play, and the sense of companionship between Henry and his soldiers is deeply felt. Henry V, with its vivid portrayals of war and episodic structure is perhaps Shakespeare’s most cinematic play. The chorus calls on us to use our “imaginary forces” to envision the battlefields of France, and aided by lighting designer David Todaro, fight choreographer Brian Cowden and sound designer Paul Winnick, Cromie fills our heads with images of charging steeds, wounded soldiers and warring armies. Although Cromie’s Henry V borders at times on being too cute, the show is so inventive and enjoyable that it’s easy to forgive the production’s excesses. Best of all, this fun and frenzied production is free, making Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre’s Henry V by far the best theater deal in town at the moment. n Henry V Through Aug. 15. Free.

From the moment Michael Rother—the surviving member of the influential Krautrock duo Neu!, now performing under the moniker Hallogallo 2010—walked onstage and plugged his white Stratocaster into a long table full of effects, the capacity crowd at International House knew they were going to witness a rare moment in rock history. Along with Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth on drums and Aaron Mullan of Tall Firs on bass, Rother did not let the audience down during their hour and 20-minute set. Rather than merely try to re-create the music of Neu!, Rother and company took the music further, offering a vision of where the legendary duo’s music might have gone had personal and professional differences not conspired to end the band in the mid-’70s. The music combined all of Neu!’s magical elements: spacey and layered guitar, experimental sound textures, and the motorik beat of late, great drummer Klaus Dinger captured flawlessly by Shelley. As Brian Eno famously once said: “There were three great beats in the ’70s—Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat, James Brown’s funk, and Klaus Dinger’s Neu! beat.” On this night, those in attendance got as close to that Neu! beat as humanly possible. Still, after witnessing Michael Rother’s scintillating fretwork around the shifting speed of the motorik beat, it’s probably time to amend Eno’s quote and say that the beat could not stand out without Rother’s mesmerizing layers of guitar. In the end, Hallogallo 2010 is not just a re-creation or celebration of the music of Neu!, but an expansion of Neu! It was hard to believe that this was only the fifth time the band has played together, as Shelley told fans after the show. We can only hope that this is the beginning of Hallogallo and not a loving tombstone for Neu!, because, the music is still as innovative and fresh as it was during the 1970s. n

Thanks to the miracle that is G modern medicine, Slayer frontman Tom Araya is recovering nicely from the back surgery (an “Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion,” to be more specific) he had in January necessitated by decades of serious headbanging and thrashing (seriously— that’s what his publicist told us). And now that he’s feeling better—perhaps via a deal with the devil as well as a deal with his doctors—you know what that means ... yes, Slayer’s much-anticipated, postponed “American Carnage” co-headlining tour with Megadeth, which was originally slated for Feb. 13 at the Susquehanna Bank Center over in Camden, is back on! Get it? Back! On! Anyway, the rescheduled Philly date is Aug. 15 at the Susquehanna Bank Center. Testament will open the show. In related news, we’ve gotten a hold of Megadeth’s hospitality rider—the portion of the contract dealing what amenities are required backstage—for the “American Carnage” tour. Some excerpts: •Twenty-four boxes of Kleenex. •Random assortment of DVD movies. Drama, action, and slapstick comedies are acceptable genres. Rock music documentaries are not. The following titles MUST NOT BE INCLUDED: The Crying Game, Cry-Baby, Boys Don’t Cry, Cry Freedom, Tears of the Sun, Cry Wolf, Sob Story, Bedtime for Sniffles, or any movie starring Jon Cryer. •One EACH voodoo-type doll in the likeness

Their goal is to provide a positive space for 80 tween and teen girls with potentially no prior musical training to become no-holds-barred rock stars through a rigorous, weeklong combination of instrument instruction and workshops on the history of women musicians, hip-hop, music marketing, business and theory, and DIY home recording.

The Asian-fusion menu is mostly well-excecuted, but the odds are stacked against Muntin. By Brian Freedman

feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

A l’Ecole Française

was a lunch special of chicken in a Malaysian red curry sauce. It was comprised of a mound of uninspired rice, rubbery slices of breast-meat chicken, sad cubes of crispy tofu and a scattering of red bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant and snap peas in a sauce that fell far short of the depth and complexity the name implied. There was a requisite touch of heat, sure, and a nod in the general direction of red curry’s perfume, but little beneath—no richness to the flavors, no body to the sauce, no heart in the dish. This was one Asian food reference too many. And that, I think, is what’s really keeping the crowds away from an overall solid newcomer: Pan-Asian restaurants have had a notably tough year in this city, and pinning Muntin’s food down is tricky. Our most successful restaurants, in fact, seem to be homing in on specific culinary traditions and mining them for all kinds of unexpected discoveries. Han Dynasty is a great example, as is Amis. With a bit more focus and consistency, Muntin may well lift the curse from its Spruce Street location. It’s not quite there yet, but I’m pulling for it. n

Muntin 1326 Spruce St. 215.546.0180. Cuisine: Pan-Asian, with a focus on Japan. Hours: Mon.-Thurs., 11am-10pm; Fri.-Sat., 11am11pm; Sun., noon-10pm. Prices: $2-$19 (more for sushi combo platters, which top out at $50). Atmosphere: Classic sushi house: Lots of wood and straight lines with an overall sense of calm. Service: Attentive and well-informed. Food: Generally solid, though with a menu this big and varied, there are a few weak spots.

head and tentacles were chewier than the beefytender body slices, but not enough to detract from the dish—the entire preparation was as successful as it was intriguing. Among a reasonably broad selection of sushi, sashimi and maki, the Love Roll stood out, a well-considered, tightly constructed combination that featured moist shrimp tempura at the center, a layer of nori and rice and then, draped over the top, meltingly tender slices of avocado the same thickness as peppercorn-dusted tuna. Again, this was a textural standout, especially with the peppercorn, a component we don’t see much of on sushi or maki menus in Philly.

But the fluke was bland and a bit a whole creature, from the delta-wedge on the dry side, and the mackerel arrived of its top all the way down to the messy smoked, which, while tasty, caused some tangle of its tentacles.

Muntin is the kind of restaurant you want to root for: The simple decor is pleasant enough, the food is generally successful and the staff adds enough of a personal touch to make the otherwise quiet space a bit warmer. But I’m nervous for it. In these days of collective economic discontent, a new spot has to really stand out from the crowd to lure a critical mass of firsttimers and crucial repeat customers. And during two recent visits—a lunch and a dinner—Muntin stood distressingly quiet. The problem doesn’t rest with the execution of the food, which is brightened up by enough unexpected highlights to give Muntin a fighting chance in the neighborhood. It’s been a long time since I’ve tasted a better scallion pancake. And while it could have absorbed a bit less oil and projected a more pronounced scallion flavor, Muntin’s version was a textural home run, comprised of countless whisper-thin layers of phyllo-like dough collapsing in and snapping brightly with every bite. Thai-style crispy red snapper, the ultimate grown-up fish stick, was not only a highlight of my Muntin experience, but a fantastic embodiment of the kind of food that Philadelphians seem to gravitate toward these days: Thoroughly comforting in its familiarity, with just enough of a twist to make it interesting. The dish was nothing more than tempurabattered and crisp-fried fish filets glazed with a subtly sweet-spicy chili sauce, but each aspect of the preparation succeeded both on its own—sweet fish, nutty crust, balanced sauce—and in the overall context.

Screen SIX PACK Six Movies Based on Comics That Look Like Comics By Matt Prigge mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com Band of Ninja (1967): Movies and comics are, in most respects, mutually exclusive mediums. Still, it’d be nice if more movies based on comics borrowed a little more from their sources. Every now and then an ambitious filmmaker thinks so, too, as was the case when Japanese New Waver Nagisa Oshima (In the Realm of the Senses) got his mitts on Sanpei Shirato’s ass-kicking manga. Rather than go live-action or even animation, Oshima simply filmed Shirato’s static images and hyper-edited them into a surprisingly kinetic epic. Tank Girl (1995): Jamie Hewlett and Alan Martin’s British cult comic screams for a manic adaptation; for better or worse, it got one. Director Rachel Talalay mixes live action with animation and throws in musical numbers, fake backdrops, wacky prosthetics and Lori Petty doing a very obnoxious Tank Girl to the point where the few heads that saw it exploded. Hulk (2003): Whatever its faults, ambition is not one of them: Ang Lee, a normally calm filmmaker, whipped up a nifty experiment with editing, dividing the frame into panels that constantly moved about, making sure the audience is always looking at at least three things at once. With a less plodding script this could have been the comic adaptation.

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY

American Splendor (2003): Thought bubbles and comic-style drawings of Paul Giamatti’s Harvey Pekar are some of the ways this Sundance fave stays true to its grouchy source. Sin City (2005): The French toon Renaissance was the one that really borrowed the look of Frank Miller’s retro-noir comics—that is, black and white, no grays—but Robert Rodriguez’s take stays true in other, sleazier ways.

A u g u s t 1 1-17, 2 01 0 •

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010): Not only does Edgar Wright’s latest blend comics with cinema—the words “RING RING” appear when a phone rings—it also throws in fighter-gamestyle smackdowns and concert rockouts. It’s a film that exists at the nexus of comics, video games, music and, of course, cinema. n

Southern Discomfort Duvall is a delight, but Get Low 's overdirected folksiness gets stale fast. By Sean Burns

sburns@philadelphiaweekly.com

Somewhere on the outskirts of Tennessee, there lives a mean old hermit in the woods who likes to throw rocks and take shotgun blasts at anybody wandering onto his property. Lately, things have gotten so bad he’s changed the NO TRESSPASSING sign to one that reads NO DAMN TRESSPASSING. So of course he’s played by Robert Duvall. A national treasure, Duvall has been periodically playing this same sort of semi-mythological Southern eccentric ever since he showed up as Boo Radley in To Kill A Mockingbird almost 50 years ago. Robert Duvall made half his career out of that cuddly, incorrigible heart of darkness lurking just beneath the Mason-Dixon Line—which is something director Aaron Schneider trades on now, shamelessly. It’s impossible to imagine Get Low without Duvall as the lead—ornery, trigger-happy recluse Felix Bush. Tommy Lee Jones is a smidge too young, and now that Gene Hackman’s unfortunately retired, we’re really in no country for these kind of old men. (I’d like to assume that at some point Eastwood tossed this cornpone screenplay straight into the circular file.) Scripted by Chris Provenzano and C. Gaby Mitchell, the movie stars Duvall as a Depression-era boogeyman who finally emerges from the woods after 40 years, throwing his giant wad of rumpled “hermit money” into staging his own funeral. The only catch is that he wants to be around for the proceedings, which in his mind are more a party than a service. Ulterior motives abound, so much so that the local pastor (Deadwood genius Gerald McRaney) won’t take the bait. Thank god, then, for Bill Murray. Playing a transplanted Chicago mortician with a penchant for fur-lined topcoats and booze, Murray’s Frank Quinn knows a payday when he sees one, and his deadpan, modern insouciance cuts through Get Low’s folksy solemnity like a cleaver through butter. The earlier, better parts of Get Low focus on Murray’s mustachioed snake-oil salesman trying to wrangle that big ball of cash away from Duvall, and it’s a pleasure watching these two actors from strikingly different eras and disciplines squaring off. There’s something excitingly incongruous about the way they hit their lines, with post-ironic Murray so tangled up in deftly timed eye-rolls and double entendres he can’t quite figure out the wily, plainspoken Duvall. The two go together like orange juice and toothpaste, but it’s fun. Too bad cinematographer-turned-director Aaron Schneider has bigger things on

To Duvindow ... to Duvall!: Robert Duvall as yet another Southern eccentric in Get Low.

his mind, trotting out a ton of gradually expanding flashbacks, turning Get Low into a morality tale hinging on a shocking revelation that is neither shocking nor revelatory. The behavior in the movie is what works, odd details that inform the characters and their backgrounds, but Schneider seems to see it otherwise, ramping up the big moments with deafening musical cues then abruptly dropping out the ambient sound and letting the “big” moments play out over shocking silence. Overdirecting in the worst amateur fashion, he hardsells a quaint story to the point where the allegedly humble little movie feels like it’s puffing out its chest all the time. Provenzano’s and Mitchell’s screenplay is an actor’s dream, allowing Duvall the run of the table on eccentricity, only maddeningly hinting at Felix Bush’s tragic past until the actor finally gets to blurt it all out in a longhand Oscar-clip monologue that goes on forever and a day, during which Schneider’s camera is always in

the wrong place. Once Duvall’s seriously weird actorly whims take over, Schneider’s too close, too soon, locked in so far he can’t back away to give his actors any breathing room. Robert Duvall is an actor who has always needed space to run; extreme close-ups are not his strong suit, especially not when he’s screaming “WHOO!” on the edge of tears. The final reel of Get Low is almost unbearable, awash in sanctimony and testaments to a character who isn’t nearly as interesting as the movie thinks he is. Thank god for Murray, along for the ride with eyebrows askance. All this hokum seems seriously annoying to him. He’s not alone. n

Sometimes filmmakers (or artists of any stripe, really) make something that forces you to entirely rethink everything they’ve done before, something that acts as a key to previous works you didn’t even think needed unlocking. Let’s not go nuts: Life During Wartime, Todd Solondz’s sixth salvo continued on page 41

details at rollingroadshow.com

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY

Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World is Fan Service: The Movie, an insular, punishingly alienating experience preaching only to the faithful, devoted hearts of arrested 12-yearold boys. It’s singularly fixated on video games and shallow visions of women as one-dimensional objects to be either obtained or discarded and offers no possible point of entry to anybody over the age of 30. Tricked out with a relentless barrage of gimmicky visuals, like the soaring large-print soundeffect text messages that constantly splinter the screen as if in a cartoon, director Edgar Wright’s headache-inducing, ADD-addled adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s beloved series of comic books pits our titular twerp (lamely played by Michael Cera within his singular note of tiresome twee-ness) against new girlfriend Ramona Flowers’ Seven Evil Exes. The concept is ripe with metaphor, as at the outset of any relationship, most partners face an uphill battle against the memories of those who came before. Alas, Wright spends no time exploring this particular vein, instead choosing to clog the film with a relentless barrage of longform, CGI-enhanced PlayStation battle sequences. It’s all meek Cera kicking butts and performing impossible stunts with Super Mario Brothers sound effects—

which is funny for approximately 15 seconds. Unfortunately, we get to watch the same overlong fight scene six times in a row. (Thank god two of the Evil Exes are twins and double up.) But the biggest problem is that Scott Pilgrim is a heel, leading on and cheating on his dim-bulb underage girlfriend (who is Asian and quite unamusingly named Knives Chau, because that’s not offensive at all) while he chases after snot-nosed Ramona. Neither of the lovebirds is remotely interesting, nor do they have jobs, nor even anything interesting to say. The movie is too lazy to even show Scott and Ramona falling for each other, and resorts to quicksilver montage. Instead, there’s scene after scene of Scott Pilgrim’s incongruous physical prowess in increasingly bizarre Mortal Kombat scenarios, but there’s never any reason to root for him or the love story at the heart of the plot. It’s all a wankoff fanboy wish fulfillment, telling scrawny losers that it’s OK to treat their women like shit if something “better” comes around. The only thing Scott Pilgrim vs. the World proves is that nerds can be just as shallow and mean-spirited as bullies. Knives Chau deserved better.

Life During Wartime

Wartime is exciting because it genuinely seems to be exploring its subject, unsure of what it will lead us or its director to find out. Several desultory Solondz traits remain: too-direct one-liners that ring false (Trish telling Timmy her new boyfriend made her “wet all over”); gallows humor that sometimes crosses over to cruelty (the revelation of one character’s death is particularly nasty). But Wartime becomes the tragedy of people seeking easy answers in a complex world, not because they’re stupid, middle-class idiots, but because they’re human. He feels for them. Perhaps he always has?

Apparently you should read Playboy for the articles. If you did, you’d already know the shocking revelation of the doc Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel—essentially, that the now octogenarian jammies-wearer is not only a playboy, but also an activist and a rebel. Unleashing a classy nudie mag in the sexless ‘50s, we’re told, was

at American society (see our interview with the director on page 44), doesn’t retroactively render Welcome to the Dollhouse, Storytelling or Palindromes masterpieces. They’re still (mostly) noxious works, seething in disdain for their characters, off-putting in tone and craft—or are they? Life During Wartime isn’t exactly what you’d call optimistic, but it reveals a compassion in its maker that makes you feel it was there all along. Subtly. Maybe. Wartime finds Solondz returning to 1998’s Happiness, in which he dragged an ensemble cast through some serious muck. But he also had unmistakable compassion for its sweet losers—including, most memorably, pedophile father Bill played by Dylan Baker—which may be why he’s resurrected them, albeit as different actors. Taking over for loopy Jane Adams, mousy Shirley Henderson plays (the aptly named!) Joy, visiting family in Florida. This includes Trish (Alison Janney), now divorced from Bill (now Ciaran Hinds) and raising their very inquisitive, very confused ginger son Timmy (Dylan Riley Snyder). Meanwhile, Bill, just out of prison, roams, not human, not yet a ghost. The recasting can reek of gimmick (The Wire’s Michael K. Williams as Philip Seymour Hoffman!), but it also serves as an elegant rejoinder to the plight of the characters, who feel incapable of overcoming the events of Happiness—in other words, of change. Bill can fuck Charlotte Rampling, but he still dreams of little boys; Trish can move to Florida for a new life, but she still once married a pedo. Eventually the subject of 9/11 is raised, along with notions of recovery and forgiveness, but Solondz isn’t out to prove a thesis, as it feels in some of his movies.

just a fraction of his more or less wildly successful de-repressing of America. His ‘zine sold not just a progressive view of sex, but a progressive view of politics, race relations and even (though this point isn’t as convincingly argued) gender relations. He published the work of blacklisted authors. His variety shows boasted integrated musicians. His clubs booked Dick Gregory when no one booked black comics. He employed a preRoots Alex Haley to do thrillingly candid interviews with the likes of Miles Davis and, at one point, a Neo-Nazi. In the doc’s view of the 20th century, Hefner is less a leisurely horndog swimming in silicone than a Zelig-Forrest Gump type, present and often instrumental in just about every game-changing event in the last half-century. This may be true, but it doesn’t make for particularly compelling viewing. Indeed, though the credited director is Brigitte Berman, Hugh Hefner often feels like it could have been made by Hugh Hefner. Fascinating as his life is, this is a Wikipedia doc: a purely expository jaunt through history that, on the few occasions it goes deeper, remains shallow or incoherently defensive. (It’s not a great sign that the too-brief section on Hefner’s battles with ‘70s feminists gives the last word to Jenny McCarthy.) It’s incredible to see the young Hefner as he suavely bulldozes conservative ideals; the perfect image of his unique power is the show Playboy After Dark, where he and intellectuals would speak openly and radically about the day’s issues while surrounded by scantily clad babes. But even at over two hours, this hagiography—which never dwells on Playboy’s cultural attaché today, much less its financial state postInternet porn—favors a reductive culture-war reading. On the side of good are Hefner and his contently smiling minions, ranging in quality from Gore Vidal to Gene Simmons; on the other, a few token prudes, including Pat Boone, feminist Susan Brownmiller and windbag Dennis Prager. No doubt that’s how Hef sees it, too. n

“WHAT A BEAUTIFUL, SUBLIME MOVIE! ONE OF THE BEST OF THE SUMMER!”

Squaring off with Michael Cera and Edgar Wright.

By Matt Prigge

-Jeffrey Lyons, KNBC/LYONS DEN RADIO

mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com ROBERT

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World is two benchmarks for English writer-director Edgar Wright: It’s his first feature post-Shaun of the Dead made without Shaun stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and it’s his first (slightly belated) American film. After Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Spaced—a show shot like a film—Wright ventures slightly out of his comfort zone to energetically direct Bryan Lee O’Malley’s comic about a young bassist (Michael Cera) who must literally battle his new girlfriend’s belligerent exes. On a national press tour, Wright was accompanied by Cera, who was on some TV show about which very little is remembered.

moments when you’re thinking, “What is he doing?” But you’re still always on his side because he’s such a goof, an idiot. I feel like I compare him to Homer Simpson. Homer will do some really stupid, inconsiderate things, but he’s a lovable idiot. In the end, you know he’s going to come around and do the right thing. This was your first feature since Shaun of the Dead without Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Did you view it as a challenge to collaborate with others? Wright: Certainly there are fans of our films who would want us handcuffed together. But it takes me three years to make a film, and in that gap Nick and Simon get to go off and do lots of stuff with other directors. Simon gets to gallivant with Mission: Impossible and Star Trek, and I think, “Well, I’m allowed to sleep around, too!” Would you say this is a melding of British, American and Canadian humor?

Wright: I don’t even know what a British sense of humor is. The traits that people say about British humor being self-deprecating and ironic are exactly the same as a Canadian sense of humor. In recent years, and maybe through cable and the Internet, the exchange of ideas and sensibilities has become more frequent. It’s most obvious through The Office having two successful incarnations in the states and the U.K. We’re all big fans of Arrested Development, that’s how I first saw Michael. People over here get incredibly geeky about Look Around You or Spaced or Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace. It’s a great exchange of ideas and actors. n

Wright: This particular book is very fun. It’s not a pretentious book. I felt like there was a reason for it. Our main character is a fantasist. Our main character is the video game version of Billy Liar. He would like to live his life like this, with onomatopoeic graphics and iconography. It made perfect sense to present it in this form. He is living and seeing his life through the telescope of all the media he’s consumed in the last 22 years.

Wright: It was more a case that we knew it had to be its own beast. I’m a big believer that comics are one medium and films are another. So, it’s not like if we took out a whole subplot it was banished to oblivion. It’s going to exist on the page forever. I worried more about cramming too much stuff in, in a weird way. It was impossible to do the books absolutely verbatim, and sometimes when people do that you tend to think, “Well, I could have just read the comic.” At some point, the two mediums have to diverge. Our main goal was, “How do we make this into a movie?”

Were you fans of the comic before or was it a project that was brought to you? Edgar Wright: I was given it a couple weeks after it was published as a potential film, and I loved it. Since then, it’s been a six-year process of stalling for time, waiting for Bryan [Lee O’Malley] to finish the books. It’s been amazing watching it grow into a cult phenomenon. Michael Cera: I have a friend who is a big comic guy, and I read the first two on his recommendation. I’m not a big comic reader but I loved them. And I’m from Toronto, too, so they had a special connection to me. But I read them as a casual reader, because I had no idea they were going to be a movie. And I didn’t think I’d be able to do it because I was too young at the time.

Todd Solondz doesn’t like that I said he had “contempt� for some (though not all) of his film’s characters. It’s understandable; contempt is a strong word. “I think it’s just reductive. It’s not interesting,� Solondz tells me during the press tour for his sixth feature, Life During Wartime. Perhaps more appropriate charges would be “bleakness� or “pessimism.� Starting with his breakthrough, 1995’s middle-school saga Welcome to the Dollhouse, Todd Solondz has crafted small, dark looks into middleSolondz class America—“sad comedies,� as he describes them—that pull no punches and rarely go for the happy ending when the worst-case scenario will do. “Pessimism in the right context is a good, healthy thing,� he retorts. “When we went to Iraq, was it good to be optimistic? Or maybe we should have been pessimistic. Some lives could have been saved if we hadn’t been so optimistic.� As the Talking Heads-derived title suggests, war hangs in the background of the film’s characters, though it never explicitly intrudes. Describing Wartime as a post-9/11 film, Solondz says he wanted to “discuss the theme of forgiveness,� which he says as explanation, though he does describe the puts to the test by having the young Timmy (Dylan recasting by saying “it’s almost like everyone’s a Riley Snyder) ask his mother Trish (Alison Janney) ghost of a former character.� But the idea of charif the 9/11 terrorists could ever be forgiven.

A

long while ago, you wrote an incredible piece of general advice for teenage boys. The advice was so excellent that I clipped it in case I ever had a son. Well, years later, I have a son. But I have moved a gazillion times, and I no longer have that precious piece of paper. My son is only 9 months old, but I am worried that by the time he is a teenager, you will have retired to some fancy ranch where you will spend your days raising organic cattle, being nasty to the local farmers and passing the afternoons on the porch terrorizing the local boys with a Super Soaker. Any chance you could reprint your advice for teenage boys? I know that I, my partner, and my son will all appreciate it. GGG LAdy Lover And MAMA

chatting with guys who found my online crossdressing profiles. I know I could try to get a gal to use a strap-on, but I like fleshand-blood cock. So I guess my question is this: do I hold out for a gal who is open to me having the odd bisexual encounter or do I learn to use my imagination a bit more during strap-on play? I only fantasize about cock when I’m already horny, and I lose all interest in it once I’ve cum. I thought in the past that I might be gay, but I have no desire to date men and can’t see myself with a guy long-term. Sorry If ThIS QueSTIon IS A LITTLe ScATTerBrAIned

First, SITQIALS, I’m sorry if my response is a little scatterbrained. I’m on vacation and currently in something of an impaired-state holding pattern over the Pacific Ocean. I didn’t read all of today’s Savage Love mail— yours was the first letter I pulled from the stack—because the shit that’s impairing me is forcing me to take it easy. How easy am I taking it? So easy that I’m not going to change “cum” to “come” in your letter. Anyway, yeah, it sure sounds like you’re into women, SITQIALS, even your fetish screams “into chicks.” Your crossdressing and role-playing fantasies are all about your bone for women and feminity. You dig women so much, you want to play the role of the woman—you want to look like a woman, be treated like a woman, get fucked like a woman. But in your fantasy scenarios, SITQIALS, men aren’t human beings and sex partners, men aren’t people with whom you could potentially have relationships, they’re props, the finishing touch that completes your ensemble. And once you blow your load, once the game is over (once you COME), you’re done, you don’t need that prop anymore, and you just want to scram. So what do you do? Well, I think your fetish makes you pretty damn near incapable of monogamy, and you’ve already discovered that strap-ons don’t meet your particular needs. So, yeah, I think you should hold out for a woman who’s into your fetish and turned on by the idea of sharing your ass— when it’s wearing panties—with a few good men. It’ll mean a longer search for the right woman, which you should be willing to do, because you’re worth it. You might want to Google “autogynephilia.” Not saying that’s where you’re at or headed, don’t know enough about it to endorse it, but … it seemed relevant, food for thought, the more you know, etc.

I

have two things to ask/say: 1. could you remind people that if they’re going to cheat on their partner, to use protection? 2. could you give me advice on getting over my ex-girlfriend? She ended things pretty terribly (see question 1), yet I’m still having a hard time letting go. Broken up

1. People, if you’re going to cheat on your partner, please use protection. It’s quite literally the least you can do. 2. Fuck other people—lots of other people. But if you were the one who dumped her, with cause, after she cheated, and she wants to get back together, well, sometimes forgiving someone for cheating is easier than getting over them. Only you know if this is one of those times.

I

am a 27-year-old male, identify as bisexual, and enjoy crossdressing—although I have only crossdressed with guys I meet online. I have no real desire to meet guys unless I’m dressed up. And when I do get together with a guy, once I cum, I’m ready to leave. I can’t see myself in a relationship with a guy. With females, I can see myself getting married and having kids, etc., and when I have sex with a woman, I’m not in a cum-and-go mentality. But when I’m dating a girl, after about a month, I start to float back to jerking off while

Congrats on the birth of your son, GGGLLAM, and here, at your request, is my advice for the hard-up teenage boy: You’re having a hard time getting girls. That sucks. I remember what it was like when I was a young teenager and wanted boys and couldn’t get any. It sucked. But the sad fact is that most young teenage boys are repulsive— that is, they are half-formed works in progress. Girls mature physically more quickly than boys, which means most girls your age already look like young women and they’re generally attracted to (slightly) older boys—and there you are, aching for your first girlfriend, but still looking like a short, hairless chimp. But don’t despair, HUTB. Your awkward/repulsive stage will pass. In the meantime, here’s what you need to do: Worry less about getting your young teenage self laid and start thinking about getting your 18- or 20-year-old self laid. Join a gym and get yourself a body that girls will find irresistible, read—read books—so that you’ll have something to say to girls (the best way to make girls think you’re interesting is to actually be interesting), and get out of the house and do shit—political shit, sporty shit, arty shit—so that you’ll meet different kinds of girls in different kinds of settings and become comfortable talking with them. Some more orders: Get a decent haircut and use deodorant and floss your teeth and take regular showers and wear clean clothes. Go online and read about birth control and STIs, and learn enough about female anatomy that you’ll be able to find a clitoris in the dark. Masturbate in moderation—no more than 10 times a day—and vary your masturbatory routine. I can’t emphasize this last point enough. A vagina does not feel like a clenched fist, HUTB, nor does a mouth, an anus, titty fucking, dry humping, or e-stim. If you don’t want to be sending me another pathetic letter in five years complaining about your inability to come unless you’re beating your own meat, HUTB, you will vary your routine now so that you’ll be able to respond to different kinds of sexual stimulation once you do start getting the girls. Good luck, kiddo. (The above advice was for a straight teenage boy. Gay teenage boys should read “boys” where I said “girls,” “anus” where I said “vagina,” “prostate” where I said “clitoris,” and “fist” where I said “fist.”)
