The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World by Nancy Jo Sales
A bunch of privileged Hollywood teenagers break into celebrities homes and steal millions of dollars worth of valuables. Yeah, this is a true story. Why did they do it? They did it because they could. And they are stupid privileged teenagers.
Josh and Khadijah went to high school together for a while. They weren’t super close friends or anything. They just knew each other. Josh was raised by a couple of those annoying parents who were probably hippies in the ‘60s and yuppies in the ‘80s. They were both professors. They were both those kinds of people who are really sure that they know what’s best for poor people and starving African kids. Anyway, one day when Josh is 16, he goes with his father to the grocery store. They run into Khadijah and her mom. And by the way, Khadijah and
her family are not even Arabic. They are white. Her parents are annoying and stupid people also. So Josh’s dad and Khadijah’s mother tell the kids to keep each other company for a while so they can talk about adult stuff. But Josh and Khadijah follow them and see them kissing. Yeah, that’s awkward. So after that, both families sort of fall apart. Josh takes full advantage of it, though, cashing in on a guitar and an amplifier courtesy of guilty old dad. Khadijah moves away with her dad, but before she does, she and Josh make a vow to never cheat on anyone. It’s more of a pinky swear as a teen, but whatever. So Josh joins a band that has one halfway-okay song and then breaks up. At 28, he is living off of royalty payments for that song and engaged to a woman who is kind of famous for being the host of an animal show that has gotten better ratings since Steve Irwin got killed by that stingray. But then at a party he runs into another musician that he kind of knows. It turns out that this guy is engaged to Khadijah. Neither Josh nor Khadijah has had any trouble keeping their vow, but what’s going to happen if they meet as adults?

album review by austin kaus
Arche Songs of Eli I believe in the concept of the album. An album should display order or a theme, no matter how roughcast, with two “sides” that have been constructed to tell the listener ... something. There are two sides to Songs of Eli’s debut full-length Arche, but they’re not “A” and “B.” They are “potential” and “repetition.” Arche doesn’t have the cohesive order I want in an album, and that’s because it’s difficult to take 10 songs about love present, unrequited or lost, and tell much of a story. I understand and accept this. Concept albums are specific entities and Arche doesn’t pretend to be one, but the lack of mature voice (in presentation, not actual vocals) leaves me with feelings far more mixed than those of the album’s protagonist that just can’t stop singing about “you.” The Sioux Falls band describes their music as “light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel anthems.” If this is true, the light at the end of the tunnel is the devilish and unsettling glow emitted from at least seven demon women that are all willing to leave the album’s protagonist. Sometimes she’s just a man eater (“Hurricane”) and sometimes she’s heading to the hills to prepare for an impending apocalypse (“Closer”). The worst example comes in “Brace Yourself.” You find her thrown from her car, help her recover, have a few kids, and then she wants to leave? Just another hue of lady fire with same codependent appeal, I guess. This album is rife with potential, showing hints of musical experimentation
that need to be pursued. Songs of Eli try different groupings of composition and instrumentation and parts - the keyboard intro to “Angel,” the excellent use of violin and vocal choir - work, but they never do so for long because of a formula one part repetition and another part repetition. The identical verses in so many of the songs mirror the narrow focus of the album itself and, too often, the sound is too much nu-emo, indistinguishable from self-replicating clone guitar bands that seem to dominant Midwestern rock stations these days. Songs of Eli play their songs well. They believe in them. I don’t doubt this band’s dedication or potential, but I don’t believe in this album. It seems to be an exercise in detoxification, the first step in the band’s search for a true voice that has to have more to talk about than the girl that never liked you/got away/was thrown through a car windshield. This album is a challenge to the band itself. To keep experimenting with various changes and instruments within the rock structure will, I believe, yield amazing results so long as Eli accepts lyrical challenges and the band as a whole is willing to push themselves to find their true sound, their true voice. It’s time for the group to move into the unsteady. Take the bubbling from this album and make it an experiment where explosions are encouraged and nobody is properly qualified. Step away from the tunnel of flaming harpies and enter the un-comfort zone. Think of the album. Make it tell a story. Make me hear the true Songs of Eli. “Arche” is a Greek word indicating a sort of foundation of beginning. In Wikipedia words, “(i)f a thing is to be well established or founded, its arche or starting point must be secure, and the most secure foundations are those provided by the gods—the indestructible, immutable and eternal ordering of things.” For Songs of Eli, Arche’s namesake is somewhat applicable. The band’s potential is established, but there is much ordering and evolution - to be done. Songs of Eli will hold their record release show at The Basement June 22 and their digital release will be available June 25.

The 2003 one-off indietronic collaboration between Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel, Headset) became one of Sub Pop’s biggest sellers, serving as a soundtrack for the hopeful and/or broken-hearted for a decade. The twodisc reissue includes a remastering of the original album, two new songs and a heart-warming collection of covers and remixes. Favorite tracks: “Such Great Heights,” “Against All Odds,” “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight,” “Nothing Better.” How I Learned to Stop Giving A Sh** And Love Mindless Self Indulgence Mindless Self Indulgence
Writing a sentence with the words “Jimmy Urine” and “mature” is a new one for me, but Urine and the rest of his synth-punk crew have made it a requirement with an excellent album and acknowledges maturation with clever lyrics, plenty of profanity, and the best production I’ve heard in a long, long time. Favorite tracks: “Hey Tomorrow F*** You and Your Friend Yesterday,” “Witness.” Everybody Loves Sausages The Melvins
The latest offering from The Melvins pays tribute to the group’s influences with 10 cover songs that range from powerful (“Black Betty”) to the surprising (Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”) with guest appearances. Favorite tracks: “Black Betty,“ ”Warhead,” ”Set it on Fire,” “Attitude.”

For all intents and purposes, Shane Carruth has completely disappeared off the filmmaking radar ever since his mind-blowing indie sci-fi debut of Primer eight years ago. The only place his name has appeared since then was in the “Thank You” section of the credits in Looper. For Upstream Color, the self-proclaimed “control freak” handles more than just the directorial duties as writer, actor, coeditor, score composer, and even selfdistributor for the film. At times Upstream Color will seem impenetrable and elusive, and at others it will make perfect sense; what remains constant is a mesmerizing and yet challenging film that explores the spirituality between humans and nature. Near the beginning of the film, a creative professional named Kris (Amy Seimetz) is suddenly drugged by a mysterious thief (Thiago Martins) who uses a special maggot-like creature that has a brainwashing effect. This leaves her in a hypnotic state where the thief has full control over her mind and what she does. Under his instructions, Kris empties out her entire savings account to him. A few days later she comes to her senses to find a long worm crawling under her skin. Another stranger takes her in, seemingly to help remove the worms, though ends up performing a surgery
that exchanges fluids between her and a pig. It is nearly as bizarre as it sounds, although everything is done so technical and matter-of-factly that it looks believable in a sci-fi kind of way. Soon after Kris realizes that she no longer has any money or her job, she runs into a man on a train whom she has never met before, yet is strangely drawn to. She learns that this man (Shane Carruth) suffered from a similar event that also left his past cloudy. Quickly, the two begin to bond as they share this intangible connection that they cannot quite figure out. This leads to the main plot of the film; their exploration into just how exactly their childhood experiences seem to blend as one. The film itself plays out more like an abstract recollection of someone’s past than a straight dialog-driven narrative. Beautifully lensed with outstanding, stimulating visuals, Upstream Color perfectly illustrates the symbolizing connection between human and nature. Pairing wonderfully with the visuals is the masterful editing that keeps the pacing of the film in check. The editing here is extremely important as it cuts back and forth enough to simulate the kind of blurry state the characters themselves experience. The result is one of the better
edited films of its kind in recent time. Upstream Color definitely calls for a second viewing to fully appreciate everything that is thrown at the viewer. But even then, I wonder if the film would still be fully realized. It is not that the film is impossible to decipher, but that it is shown in an abstract manner without a straightforward direction with somewhat dense storytelling. Perhaps a second viewing would also enhance the emotional relationship between Kris and Jeff, instead of the forced one that the viewer gets thrown suddenly into on the first watch. By the time the credits roll, you will feel like you have just woken up for a multidimensional hypnotic state just like the characters in the film. There is definite method to its madness that purposely leaves the viewer a little puzzled with what exactly transpired. But the beauty of Upstream Color is that the film wants you to further explore all the themes, connections and emotions on your own, and in order to do that, multiple viewings June be required.

Blake Ginithan Read full review: way2in.de/30
Come Out and Play is a vicious and methodical new horror film by a mysterious new film director who only goes by the name of Makinov. This film is an update of Who Can Kill a Child?, the 1976 film that some horror aficionados call one of the best Spanish horror thrillers ever made. While the film isn’t a home run, there is a lot to admire here. While forgiveness is not on the table for some of the setbacks found within the film, I can’t completely disregard what does work. Spring Breakers
7.9 out of 10
C.J. Prince Read full review: way2in.de/3w
When the news came out that Harmony Korine, director of Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy and Trash Humpers, was making a movie about spring break involving James Franco and Disney starlets, the reactions ranged from shock to boundless excitement. Despite the sluggish final act, Spring Breakers is already one of the best American films this year. Using the hyper-stylized, neon-lit aesthetics associated with today’s MTV generation, Korine takes the “spring break forever” lifestyle and pushes it to the breaking point. If anything, Spring Breakers shows just how blurry the line is between the fun and horror of spring break. Profile of a Killer
6.6 out of 10
Dustin Jansick Read full review: way2in.de/3v
Cinema Falls was kind enough to bring this indie psychological thriller to the Icon Lounge in Sioux Falls last month, along with the lead star of the film. As with most crime thrillers, if you find yourself poking around the plot details afterwards you are bound to find a few holes and unneeded scenes. At large, Profile of a Killer remains captivating even when some flaws are seen along the way. The biggest accomplishment for the film was attempting to do more than most in its genre with fewer resources to work with.

June 14 | KRROFEST W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds, Sioux Falls, S.D. VIP Gates 1 p.m./General 2 p.m. Admission VIP $75, $47 adv, $60 day by Carl Anthony KRROFEST sets up shop for the ultimate rock and roll party on Tuesday, June 14 at the Sioux Empire Fairgrounds. Attendees will enjoy casual tailgating and camping along with high energy rock flowing from the stage. It is the first chance to escape the recent cold weather and enjoy a cold beer under the warm sun. “This has become more of a festival than a concert,” said Jered Johnson, president and founder of Pepper Entertainment. “It is not so much about the bands playing as it is the environment.” KRROFEST began in 2008 as a way to fill a void with rock shows. Since then many notable acts have performed, including Slipknot and Korn. Johnson, who began Pepper Entertainment from a home office in 2006, believes when Slipknot and Korn graced KRROFEST, it solidified it as something special. “When those bands came we thought we were really doing okay and we would continue to be okay if we just kept going,” said Johnson. “KRROFEST now has received attention coast to coast.” Cade is the brand manager for 103.7 The KRRO based in Sioux Falls. He and Ryder host the KRRO Morning Show, starting at 5 a.m. weekday mornings. He feels the sky is the limit with KRROFEST as things continue to fire on all cylinders for the annual event. “I know it sounds cliché, but it keeps getting bigger and better every year,” said Cade.“We always get a great line-up and have been able to get many successful bands to come.” This year’s headliner, Alice in Chains, has been a long favorite of both Johnson and Cade. The Seattle natives were part of the iconic grunge scene in the
early ‘90s and helped bring to light the budding genre. Their original vocalist, Layne Staley, passed away in 2002 after a perpetual struggle with addiction. Staley’s eerie and haunting voice was a signature behind three of their five studio albums. “Alice in Chains is a transcendent group and true grit grunge,” said Johnson. “I grew up listening to them, so it means a lot to have them come.” “They are one of the biggest bands on the planet,” added Cade. “Every year we get requests to have them come.” In addition to Alice in Chains, Halestorm and Bullet for My Valentine join the lineup, both of which are in high demand for KRRO listeners. Sick Puppies and Thousand Foot Krutch are also tagged to the bill, while Aranda and Young Guns help anchor. “We always try to bring in some upand-coming acts,” said Johnson. “I feel, top to bottom, this is our best KRROFEST ever.” “There is literally something for everybody this year,” said Cade. “This is a great lineup and one that is worth getting exited for.” KRROFEST also makes an economic impact on the city. Hotels, convenience stores and restaurants all benefit from the event. Companies have even start-
ed planning their retreats around KRROFEST, purchasing tickets in bulk. One of the most important elements of KRROFEST is the affordability. “It is always important to get solid acts, but it is more important to keep things at a fair price,” said Cade. Along with ticket prices, safety is a big priority as well. The production setup will be overseen by a structural engineer while event organizers team with the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Department to examine protocols should something happen. “We all try and come together for public safety,” said Johnson. “We want people to enjoy the party, but at this point we are less concerned about our financial commitment and more concerned about public safety.” As for the future and who will come next year, it is hard to say. Both Johnson and Cade will begin planning the 2014 edition of KRROFEST the very next day, looking for bands that can route to Sioux Falls. Cade dreams of seeing Green Day or Tool headline, but he is more than satisfied with this year’s event. “This will be a rock party on the grandest of levels,” said Cade. “It doesn’t get much better than this.” For more info, visit www.krrofest.com.

June 24 | The Spill Canvas Orpheum Theater, Sioux Falls, S.D. 7 p.m. | $20 floor, $15 balcony The alternative rock band The Spill Canvas is coming together again on the Orpheum Theater stage June 24 a year after releasing their album Gestalt. “Camp Spill” has been busy, marketing themselves through channels like social media and rehearsing for the big show. “We would love to get out there and play some more shows across the country, but for now our focus for performing has been more localized here in South Dakota,” said drummer Joe Beck. They also have been busy supporting the solo career of frontman Nick Thomas, who recently well exceeded his $15,000 goal on Kickstarter to help him record his new album. “The platform of Kickstarter is a true pioneer in the field of connecting artists to their fans, allowing the concept of DIY to take on an entirely new meaning,” said Thomas. The Spill Canvas also had over $35,000 pledged from backers for Gestalt, one of the band’s favorite albums to date. “The fans blew our minds with their encouragement and support,” said Beck. “Kickstarter will most definitely be in our band’s future.” With Thomas focusing on going solo, what is their future? Thomas stated, “The Spill Canvas is still together, simply taking much needed time off to enjoy time with our families and loved ones. Spill will remain able to perform for some upcoming rad colleges this fall season.” In the band’s downtime, Thomas says he feels it to be his time to “push the musical envelope.”
“My musical well is far from dried up, and now under the moniker Nick Thomas I have never felt more at peace and such a sense of home from incredible fans -- from the diehards to the newbies,” he said. “Without you, there would be no me.” The concert is all ages, and tickets are available at www.pepperentertainment. com, etix.com or at Ernie November on 41st Street. Openers are TBA. For more info, visit www.thespillcanvasband.com, follow @thespillcanvas or find them on Facebook. FUN FACTS w/ The Spill Canvas 1.

Flyboy Donuts the bridges 57th St and Western Ave Sioux Falls, SD (605) 321-5259
Flyboy Donuts This donut has purple in the middle, purple is a fruit! ~Homer Simpson There are few foods that majority of people enjoy. Varieties of different foods are available in our region for that reason, to satisfy specific cravings every one of us deals with from time to time. Some foods stand the test of time as favorites and can go through numerous changes and make overs and still be embraced by wide populations. Sprinkles can be added, frosting flavors changed, fillings altered and still the ever-popular breakfast item remains dear to our hearts Donuts. Yes, the elusive breakfast food that lost its way from the dessert menu years ago, giving kids and adults alike a valid excuse to eat something filled with whipped cream, frosted and glazed for breakfast. These rings of sugar aren’t only showing up at breakfast, though. Donuts offer an inexpensive, sweet treat any time of the day. Businesses can hold meetings at 2 p.m. and still surprise everyone with a dozen glazed bad boys to go with their cup of joe. Which brings me to my featured new business gracing Sioux Falls with some of the best - you guessed it - donuts. Flyboy Donuts opened in the Bridges of 57th in the former Nucci’s location and is creating quite a buzz in the pastry world. Few options are available for donuts: you have the grocery stores and Daylight Donuts, but beyond that we lack a plethora of specialty shops, but as of recently we can add one more to that list. Flyboy already has a location in Tea, where they make all their doughy
concoctions from scratch. For me, the good old plain glazed donut is a little slice of heaven. But with options like Maple Bacon, Apple Fritter, and a multitude of frosting options, I knew I had to venture out of the glazed box. First up, the Maple Bacon donut. Bacon is all over the place these days, becoming an American staple like Apple Pie or a cheeseburger. I couldn’t resist trying this, and once I bit in, I knew I was lucky to have even gotten one. These are one of their specialties that can sell out pretty quickly in the morning, so get there early if you have your heart set on this sweet and salty dream of a donut. You can find glazed donuts some places, but even some made fresh here in town can’t compare to these. Homemade dough for these donuts is noticeably denser, making their different flavors seem even more enhanced with the fresh dough taste. Apple Fritters have such a strong taste of the fruit, and mixed with the dough, make them simply fantastic. I have had them before, and sometimes the taste of the glaze can overpower the taste of the fruit itself, but that is not the case with Flyboy. If you are in a very, very hungry mood and want to stray a bit from the donut, Flyboy offers a fried Cinnamon Roll. Yup, go
605magazine.com (page 27)
ahead and re-read that and try to imagine how that might taste. Better yet, go try it. It is phenomenal. Really, I don’t think I can go back to regular cinnamon rolls. Another filling/topping Flyboy seems to have perfected is the whipped cream. Donuts at Flyboy are topped with it, and filled with it, and either way is pretty fantastic. I have had filled donuts before, but the whipped cream from Flyboy is so light and fluffy it is definitely a new favorite. Another family favorite in my house? Donut holes. So light and airy, these donut holes are a common treat in our house after trying them for the first time. Eat them with caution, though. The airiness can be trick, before you know it you have downed a dozen alone in your car, before even pulling out of the parking lot. That sort of sugar high isn’t good for anyone. Flyboy also offers call-ahead service for those last minute meetings or get togethers you promised you would bring something to. Something about bringing in a few dozen donuts to a business meeting just makes it a bit better. Flyboy also offers a smaller seating area and coffee for those who choose to enjoy their breakfast or light snack. Giant pictures of beautifully frosted donuts are displayed on older wood giving this donut shop more of a unique look when compared to the typical neon lights, retro tables, and pictures of things like sunrises and chickens. More modern tables give this shop a “sit and stay” sort of vibe, though they do still possess the traditional neon light at the door. Coffee is offered in addition to your donuts, as well as a few other traditional options such as pop, milk and juice. Flyboy has also been quoted as wanting to add breakfast sandwiches and an ice cream donut sandwich. Interest peaked? Mine too. So, not like you really need a reason to get a donut, but a new shop opening is certainly a good excuse. People everywhere like donuts. Filled, glazed, sprinkled, you name it, a box of these doughy concoctions will almost always bring a slough of smiles. The only reason I say almost always is because there are always the dieters of the group; but even the most strict of dieters have a hard time saying no to a traditional glazed circle of greatness. (Atmosphere) The space has limited seating, which seems to work out because every time I have been in there open seats are available. I gather that a lot of donut business is grab-and-go. Not a lot of decor throughout makes it look pretty new still, but the decor they do have is unique and creative. (Service) Every time I have gone to Flyboy I have had questions about each variety of donut, and amazingly enough they have never grown tired of answering “So, is that one good?” In a business where preparing, ordering and packaging June have to run a bit quicker the staff has never made me feel rushed into just hurrying up and picking a donut. Go ahead, ask away. (taste) They are donuts. You have had one, you’ve had them all, right? Nope. Certain donuts hold the bar a bit higher when it comes to flavor and texture. While the donuts all seem to be fantastic, there certainly is a benefit to getting there in the morning, and getting some fresh. While they still taste great as a midday snack, sometimes the glaze can get a bit crummy and hard.

the details: What: Jog for a Dog Where: Main Street Square, Rapid City, S.D. When: June 11 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. How Much: Registration Fee/ Donations
Jog for a Dog Main Street Square is “pawsing” the rules for a cause June 11. Dogs, which are normally not allowed in the Square, will fill downtown Rapid City during Jog for a Dog, a fundraiser for the Humane Society of the Black Hills. The shelter is home to nearly 7,000 stray and unwanted animals every year. The second annual event was created after inquiring the public on what programming they wanted at Main Street Square. “We had an overwhelming response from our local animal lovers, many of our staff included,” said Main Street Square executive direc-
tor Megan Karbowski. “Before we knew it, we were developing plans for a walk benefit and stocking up on treats.” Jog for a Dog is sponsored by Family Thrift Center and Prairie Market and will include many new elements.
“This year’s event will include dog demonstrations and dog centric vendors, and is held concurrently with Main Street Square’s Spring Market,” said Karbowski. The event kicks off at 10 a.m. with the market filled with fresh produce and other home goods.

Other vendors will be selling art, crafts, jewelry, plants, pottery, and more. This will follow the Health Fair, which will take place in the Square June 4. “The Health and Food Fair focuses on exploring one’s well-being, and will feature wholesome vendors specializing in health foods, personal fitness and healthy living lifestyles,” said Karbowski. 11 a.m. kicks off the events with a Wolfpack demonstration. “The Wolfpack Working Dogs are specially trained for search and rescue operations,” said Karbowski. “The dogs will demonstrate some special tricks and rescue efforts they use.” The Rapid City Police Department K-9 Unit continues with a demonstration, followed by the Jog for a Dog beginning at 2 p.m. Various dog-friendly information booths and vendors will be at the event from veterinarians, groomers, healthy dog food suppliers, pet portraits, and more. This is just the beginning of a packed summer at the Square. “Between June 4 and 11, there will be more than 50 vendors at Main Street Square alone,” said Karbowski. They are also introducing events like their Summer Concert Series on Thursday nights with a kickoff event on Saturday, June 18 featuring Groovedaddy. Fifty percent of proceeds from Jog for a Dog will be donated to the Humane Society of the Black Hills. To help the cause, sign up for the event or donate at the registration table. All dogs are asked to be on a leash, and participants should bring their pet with their discretion. Karbowski said, “We ask owners to use their best judgment on bringing down their pet if their dogs get nervous around other animals or large crowds of people.” To those who aren’t runners, Jog for a Dog does not necessarily mean jogging is a must. Owners can run or walk for the animals. For the latest updates, visit www.mainstreetsquarerc.com, follow @mainstsquare or find them on Facebook.

A Brewing Trend in South Dakota
ant a handcrafted brew? Just walk to your kitchen or basement. It’s not uncommon to home brew these days or to have a friend or relative who has the brewers bug. Kits are available anywhere from online to the nearest gas station. Landon Swanson had been brewing with friends for years. “I was brewing almost every weekend,” said Swanson. But the beer wasn’t the only thing brewing. Swanson had been scoping out properties in the Black Hills, specifically in Custer, to potentially open his own brewpub. After years of research and beer trials and tribulations, Bitter Esters Brewhouse opened in June 2012 with Swanson as head brewer. The location was ideal, next to the popular Sage Creek Grille on Mt. Rushmore Road. “We built the bar, we built the counters, we redid the floor, we installed lights, we did all the electricity – we did everything,” explained Swanson. Jeff Drumm, president and head brewer of Crow Peak Brewing Co. in Spearfish, also started as a home brewer before building the original small brewery in 2007 with his wife. As his interest and passion grew, he took courses with the American Brewers Guild and interned at Wild River Brewing in Oregon. “When we opened in 2007, my wife and I were brewing, bartending, everything,” said Drumm. “We didn’t do any packaging, but we had a good following in Spearfish and the Black Hills area.” As “the beer was flowing faster than it could be brewed,” Crow Peak realized their business needed a major expansion. In 2009 Drumm brought on partners and purchased a bigger brewing system to enable them to start packaging and distributing (going from a five barrel to a 30 barrel brew system and three 60 barrel fermenters). The business also put in a can line, which is the only way they package their product. Drumm says this is
better for the environment and for the beer. “Everything is canned; we don’t do any bottling,” said Drumm. “Bottles let light in, and that gives beer an off flavor. They also keep oxygen out, which is another bad thing for beer.” Drumm believes canning is trending, with national companies like New Belgium Brewing following suit. Crow Peak is distributed statewide. Swanson feels distribution is one of the reasons why it has taken a while for more breweries and brewpubs to catch on in South Dakota – the main reason, in his opinion, are laws prohibiting a self-distribution license. “It’s really tough to have to go through a distributor because they’re going to take a good chunk of [revenue] to get it out,” explained Swanson. “You have to rely on people who are selling Budweiser and Miller and Coors to sell your product.” North Dakota just had Governor Dalrymple sign SB 2284, the Brewer Taproom License bill, into law March 21. Breweries now are licensed to produce 25,000 barrels of beer a year, can have a taproom and sell their beer for on-site consumption, distribute their beer with their own equipment throughout the state and not use a distributor, and can sell the beers they make off-sale at the brewery for customers to take home and drink. There are predictions that this will cause a large brewery boom in the state. Swanson hopes South Dakota will take notice. “We’ve got a bunch of outdated laws, but I think it’s coming,” he said. “It’s getting better and we just need people to support it.” Because of topics like this, Swanson, along with other breweries popping up in the state, are coming together to form the South Dakota Craft Brewers Guild – a community organization that promotes craft beer in the state to help it flourish. Drumm said, “We want to make sure all the new guys coming in starting breweries will have a unified voice to
help with legislation and help market craft beer in South Dakota.” Laws are not their first order of business, though. “We don’t want to totally start directly involved in any legislation, but it certainly is what we feel and believe is the right way,” said Swanson. One of the topics on the agenda is to have a large outdoor beer festival. Swanson says South Dakota has made giant steps towards this with Monk’s House of Ale Repute’s Beervana held in September in Sioux Falls and Main Street Square’s Bierbörse (German for beer stock exchange) held in October in Rapid City. Currently there are around seven breweries and brewpubs in the state (listed on page 38). The owners and head brewers unanimously are excited about craft beer becoming more of the norm in the area. “There are more and more people who are sampling beers from other breweries and discovering there is more good beer out there than what they’ve had in the past,” said Drumm. Each business has its own vibe and unique menu, which is why people are encouraged to take a trip to each brewery and brewpub for the experience. “These people are coming in and they’re really passionate about what they make, and they give you the best of what they can do,” said Swanson. An excuse to hit the road is American Craft Beer Week June 13-19, where each business will have events like live music, beer and food pairings, classes, and more. So grab your keys, take a ride across the state, and experiment with your taste buds in a homey and comfortable atmosphere where everything is brewed on site. “Craft beer is meant to taste amazing and still provide that social lubricant people love,” said Swanson. “I think South Dakota can stand with the rest of them. I think we’ll be a great craft beer destination.” Where to go:

You can’t miss out on South Dakota’s first brewpub, which opened in December of 1991. Existing in the original city firehouse, this historical landmark has been standing since 1915 and is owned by several local investors who developed the idea for a brewpub after going on a pub crawl in Denver, Colo. The group of partners completed the project in 93 days with sledge hammers and crow bars in hand. A restaurant and lounge consist in the first two levels and there is a new outdoor patio for taking in downtown and live music. The handcrafted beers by brewmaster Mike Kilroy and the food menu filled with the Midwest’s favorite dishes are centered around English pub fare with something that is sure to please your palate.

No, there is no elderly woman who is bitter named Ester. The title is a play on words dubbed after bitter and esters, two huge flavors in beer (bitter from the hops and esters are an organic compound). This quaint nano brewery and restaurant is charming in the southern Black Hills. Head brewer Landon Swanson’s handcrafted ales are from the Black Hills water, malted barley and fresh hops. Known for session ales of British and Belgian flare (so you can enjoy several brews!), there typically are 35 different beers throughout the summer season. Rock climbers, tourists and families frequent the locale, but the clientele is “all over the board.” Location: 607 Mt. Rushmore Rd., Custer, S.D.

5) Heist Brewing Co.
Noting their dedication to service, responsibility and quality, Heist Brewing Co., a microbrewery, was created by Thomas Strübel to create craft ales in Brookings. The South Dakota State University student studied civil engineering and German and found his calling when he met Luke Rensink (head brewer) the fall of 2010. Heist opened its doors July of 2011 and started selling beer in South Dakota and recently started selling in North Dakota. The name comes from the story of 1930’s bank robbers Bennie and Stella “Sure Shot” Dickson It doesn’t stop at beer, though. Heist “is doing a lot more than just making great beer” by making positive changes and sharing success every step of the way with the community. Strübel started a homebrew store for beginners and/or highly-skilled brewers. Location: 611 2nd Street South, Brookings, S.D. Brews: Pilot Pale Ale, Pirate Imperial Pale Ale, Tea Off, Black Lotus, Mobster Imperial Indian Pale Ale, and more. Contact: (605) 549-5558 www.heistbrewing.com

the real deal
Name: Jessica Farley Elofson age: 32 Hometown: Brandon, S.D. Specialty: Vintage clothing collector, blogger, art fanatic and wannabe entrepreneur
“I’m inspired by all the young women out there who are taking a leap of faith and creating their own businesses. I never thought I could do anything like this, and I still surprise myself every day.”
Shopping problem? No doubt. A closet well over capacity with clothes and accessories collecting dust? Most definitely. These dilemmas inspired Jessica Farley Elofson to stop ogling at fashion blogs like What I Wore (www.whatiwore. tumblr.com) on her laptop and to start her own, calling it Sioux Falls Style. The blog, which offers a plethora of categories - styling services and advice, outfits of the day (known as #ootd on social media), home décor and online shopping (pottery and vintage clothing) - was originally created to “document fashion” in the Midwest. Elofson, who was just chosen as the Empire Mall’s Official Simon Style Setter Fashion Blogger (www.simon.com/ mall/the-empire-mall), chatted with 605 about her individual style, helping others create their own looks, and how she brands herself. Tell us about SiouxFallsStyle.com. What is it all about? I figured a fashion blog would force me to get creative and wear things for a purpose, even if I was just heading to class or the grocery store. After a few months of blogging, I had a lot of people ask for help with their own wardrobes. As a personal stylist, I perform sort of a What Not To Wear experience with clients. Right now Sioux Falls Style is just about me and my randomness, but someday I would like to expand the blog to feature other stylish woman in the area. My next goal for the site is to create a Sioux Falls shopping guide - a referSubmitted Images.
ence for local and out-of-town shoppers featuring the best places to shop! What is the demographic for your blog? I think my blog appeals to a broad age range. I work with high school girls all the way up to women in their 50’s and 60’s. Because I wear a lot of vintage, younger gals seem to relate, and the older generation fawns over my love for clothing they used to own. I think my ideal demographic would be women my own age – women who feel like they are finally coming into their own while juggling kids, work and doing it all! When did you expand to your online store? I started shopping vintage in college [at the University of South Dakota]. I worked next door to The Civic Council in Vermillion, and every time I would get off a lunch shift I’d browse the racks. It quickly became an obsession, and my collection of vintage clothing and accessories got big. Really big. I decided to open up an etsy shop, which was successful at first, but I found that as etsy grew it became harder to find my shop. Elofson (www.shopelofson.com) was born last year. I wanted to create a place to find interesting, oneof-a-kind vintage and art pieces from local talent.

It seems you created a personal brand. How do you accomplish that? Sort of by accident with a dash of planning. I come from a graphic design and mass communications background, so naturally I understand the branding process. What I’ve had to learn is the business side of things! There is a lot more to creating a brand than just a pretty logo. You have to register with the state, pay taxes and keep track of expenses. Sadly, it’s not all about the clothes. How long have you been working on your blog/your branding? Forever! After a lot of trial and error, the perfectionist in me is almost satisfied, but I’m never fully finished with any aspect. There are always ways to tweak bits and pieces. I’m sure the brand will evolve every day, and I’m excited to see what I can accomplish on my own! What inspires you? Design-wise I’m inspired by art, the creative process itself and other designers. My favorite thing to do is to take thrift store finds and cut and sew them into new pieces. I get a lot of ideas from magazines such as Elle and Vogue. On the business side of things, I’m inspired by all the young women out there who are taking a leap of faith and creating their own businesses. I never thought I could do anything like this, and I still surprise myself every day. That’s what keeps me motivated and moving forward. Tell us about your pottery. My husband has been working as an artist for about 12 years. I’m totally not biased, but he’s really talented! He and I are working on some collaborations that will be revealed on the site soon. Part of the reason that I wanted to include fine art on the Elofson site was because the local art scene in the city is booming and I wanted people from all over the states and around the world to see what talent we have brewing in the Midwest! Elofson est. 1887 is your online shop - can you tell us about your logo? I’ve been married to Jess Elofson for two years this month, yet I never officially took his last name (pure laziness, probably), so in all reality I kind of felt guilty and thought I should name the shop after him. I totally respect his heritage (his ancestors settled where we live now in 1887), and I feel it’s good karma to pay homage to family. Do you have any advice for those who are trying to expand their wardrobe and experiment with fashion? Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd. Wear heels to the grocery store or a formal gown to the park. The funny thing is that some people dismiss fashion because they feel like they don’t have the confidence to wear this or that, but in all actuality fashion is what makes you confident. Try it. Wear something bold and people will pay attention. That’s always a good thing! Sioux Falls Style is hosting the Spring 2013 Thrift Store Tour on June 10 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. starting with mimosas and muffins at the Museum of Visual Materials and hitting the city’s secondhand hot spots via a bus. Admission is $25 per person. Check out Sioux Falls Style on Facebook, @siouxfallsstyle or visit www.siouxfallsstyle.com.

mommy mind trip by susan kroger-Peters
She is a busy mom of two children and highly suggests that you don’t follow her parenting practices.
bio: Susan has worked with new parents and babies for several years. She has a master’s degree in mental health counseling from the University of Northern Iowa. She likes punk music, eating food that other people cook, and making her husband and two kids laugh with her silly antics. You can find her at her blog at www.mommymindtrip. com (Fair warning: The blog is often profane and June be offensive to readers without a sense of humor) and on Twitter @susancpeters.
A Memorable ride I’ve never fielded so many questions about a fake dinosaur. “Mommy, will the dinosaur try to eat me?” “Does the dinosaur mommy have a baby dinosaur?” “Can I ride the dinosaur?” “Is it a mean dinosaur or a nice dinosaur?” This went on for hours before our trip to the Children’s Museum of South Dakota, located in downtown Brookings. My daughter was referring, of course, to Mama T. Rex, the life-sized animatronic that is part of the museum’s 1.5 acre outdoor exhibit. Mama T. Rex was temporarily forgotten upon our arrival to the facility. I watched my children’s heads nearly explode as they explored exhibits, each room eliciting a chorus of “whoooooa” and “cooooool.” My adventurous son tended toward sensory activities, including painting on a large, clear plastic wall. At one
point I turned my head and looked back to find the brush end of the blue paintbrush tucked firmly between his teeth. He ingested so much blue paint that his mouth resembled that of a Smurf. I was grossed out, but unconcerned. I assumed the staff at the museum are accustomed to paint-hungry toddlers. My daughter was quickly drawn to the miniature food market, and I was forced to resort to bribery in order to coax her to leave her cart full of produce at the end of the day. After removing absolutely all of the plastic fruit off of the produce shelf and placing it in her mini shopping cart, she and I had an interesting conversation about her lack of affinity toward real fruit. I found it ironic that she wanted to play with fruits and vegetables the entire time we were there, but refuses most real fruits and vegetables. She failed to see the irony. Also, she doesn’t yet understand irony.
Unfortunately, we were unable to ride the dinosaur due to weather. (Actually, I don’t think that’s allowed.) However, I reveled in watching my daughter’s eyes light up as she gazed out the window at the piece de resistance of the museum. She was in absolute awe of this creature that up until then she had only seen in picture books and in cartoon form. This was a moment that I won’t soon forget. We left the museum with bellies full of delicious pasta from the Cafe and a toy wooden flute that my daughter mercilessly blew into for ten straight minutes on the way home. I was thoroughly impressed with both the facility and our experience (did I mention there is a fake town for children?!). The highlight of my day? The satisfied smiles on my childrens’ faces as they slept off their exhaustion in the car after a full day of educational play. We can’t wait to go back.

ask the johns
Yes, all three of these guys are named John. Yes, it was a popular name in the ‘80s. The identity of these three amigos have been altered to protect the innocent. Have a question for the Johns? Shoot an e-mail their way at TheJohns@605magazine.com. 1.)
I introduced my friends to an old buddy of mine who moved here recently. The annoying part is that my freshlymoved friend has stopped calling me lately and is constantly hanging out with my best friends... without me. What do I do?
One of my friends is constantly being judgmental. It’s gotten to the point where some people don’t show up to parties if they’re going to be there because they feel uncomfortable. I either need to stop hanging out with them all together or say something... Advice?
My husband got a great job offer, but it’s in another state. I’m happy for him, but I don’t want to leave friends and family. Is that selfish?
JR: You should make new friends. I had a group of friends that ditched me after I got rid of my trampoline, so I feel your pain. I have new friends now, though! My best friend is the greatest. She is really nice, likes long walks and is very loyal. The Humane Society is full of friends! JW: I rarely overreact to situations like this, but I’m going to suggest that you frame your friends with unsavory contraband to win back your long lost buddy.
JT: Take the initiative and call all your friends to hang out. You are probably over thinking this situation, and you need to remember that phones work both ways. You can’t get mad at your friends for not calling you if you’re not calling them.
JR: My best friend can be really judgmental, too. She’s always like, ‘Get a job, take a shower, and cut your hair!’ And I’m all like, ‘Mind your own business, Mom, and put that freaking pizza in the oven!’ JW: Cut the fat. Wait… to be more accurate, cut the judgmental fat. Follow with a liberal set of staged social media photos of you all having fun without her. I’m guessing it is a ‘her’ because guys don’t care enough to be judgmental about most anything.
JT: Dealing with judgmental people can be very annoying and extremely frustrating. In my experience, you can’t change a judgmental person because they’re set in their beliefs and opinions of others. You need to first recognize that your friend is likely struggling with insecurities. Furthermore, they June not even realize that their comments are alienating people and pushing them away. If you want to save the friendship, you can either bite your tongue when they’re around or try telling them how you feel. If you decide to talk to them, keep your message positive, because they most likely enjoy and get fuel from negative attention.
Illustration by Chuck Bennis Disclaimer: Ask the Johns is a sarcastic piece. Their advice is not meant to be taken literally… except Junebe John T’s.
JR: I don’t know if you can trust a man that would even consider leaving the greatest state in the union. I’d say this is an irreconcilable difference. JW: All the single ladies! JT: No, you’re not being selfish. In fact, he probably shares the same hesitations that you’re feeling. This is a situation that will affect both of your lives in a big way. You need to put lot of thought into it by weighing all of the pros and cons. Most importantly, you need to have a meaningful discussion with your husband and express how you really feel about moving.

bio: Kerry uses her love for typography and ranged design talent to compile both 605 Magazine and Dainty Obsessions. Her subtle quirks include her color coordinated closet and her somewhat unhealthy Pinterest obsession.
Empty wine bottles Glass cutter Hot & cold water Sand paper Mark the bottle where youâ€™re going to score it. Hold the bottle firmly and securely. Use the glass cutter to score along your mark. Take a hold of the bottle on both ends and slowly rotate under boiling hot water. After a few minutes, switch to ice cold water while still rotating the bottle. Keep going back and forth with the different temperatures of water. Make sure you have a good grip on the bottle. After some time the bottle will crack and break where the score was. Sand the edges down until smooth. Tip: Dishwasher and microwave safe. Warning: Glass is very dangerous, take precautions! Wear eye protection and work in a safe environment. Parental guidance advised for those under 18.

Welcome Back, Canaries The fans have spoken. Sioux Falls Sports, LLC, the ownership of the Sioux Falls Pheasants and Sioux Falls Stampede, made several major announcements concerning the Sioux Falls Pheasants baseball club on March 26 at the Museum of Visual Materials. And those announcements had nothing to do with the Pheasants at all. “We decided that we were going to take the first year [of ownership beginning last June] and really talk to the fans and get as much information as we can,” said Canaries CEO/president Tom Garrity. Whether it was at the VFW, coffee shops, schools, the answer was clear – bring back the Canaries. “It’s a name that’s been in baseball history in the community and city for a long time. It really resonated with people,” he said. The Sioux Falls Fighting Pheasants just wasn’t sticking, and Garrity said even other teams in the league would accidentally call them the Canaries still out of habit. “Changing the name, we’re hoping, will show the com-

mitment we have to the team and to the history and really grow the team,” he said. The refreshed Canaries logo was revealed at the announcement as well, designed by Fresh Produce. Radio and TV spots were also created by the advertising agency to rev people up for the upcoming season starting June 17 at 7:05 p.m. vs. the Sioux City Explorers. “They had a lot of impact on what we’re going to do,” said Garrity of Fresh Produce. “They’re big baseball fans.” The change doesn’t mean the Pheasants were a failure, though. Last year Sioux Falls Stadium had a record year in attendance. “We increased our attendance by over 70 percent, which is great, but we were the worst attended team in our league,” said Garrity. “We still have a long way to go.”
605magazine.com (page 61)
They hope along with the official name change they can raise attendance with an array of promotions and ticket options that can fit any fan’s budget or schedule. Season tickets for all 50 home games start as low as $250, and all season ticket holders become part of the “Mug Club,” which allows them to get 16 ounce beers or sodas for $2 all game, every game. Fans who are looking to choose their own games can take advantage of the E-Z Game Ticket books that are $99 and come with 10 ticket vouchers good for the best available seat for any game. Perch Pack tickets are also back, which was popular with Canaries games in the ‘90s. Select 10 games ($100), 20 games ($200) or 30 games ($300) and get the same seat for every game. New this year is the Weekender, a plan that gives fans the same seat for every Friday and Saturday game for $192 per seat. These Weekender plans also come with a membership into the Mug Club. “We’re trying to have more fun, and it’s really affordable and something for everybody,” said Garrity. “We’re really trying to appease to a really broad demographic of people.” A promotional schedule is posted on their website, which includes a “Birds are Back” t-shirt giveaway to the first 500 fans on June 18, a baseball bat giveaway compliments of Schoeneman’s Lumber, a limited edition Canaries Lunch Box giveaway, a Coleman Heating Baseball Glove giveaway, and more! Some old traditions like the “Little Birds” youth dance team and the YMCA dance will return to the Birdcage, as well as the brand new Canaries Dance Team. Dust of your old hats, bust out the vintage t-shirts, refill your tattoo for free entry, and prepare for a season that will bring the perfect mix of nostalgia and new memories to the forefront. “I’m looking forward to winning some games and for the first home game to see the guys come out in their Canaries jerseys,” said Garrity. Welcome back, indeed. You were missed. Single game tickets are on sale now through the Canaries Box Office and any Ticketmaster location.
