WEEK IN REVIEW JUNE 25-JULY 02, 2014
n Tuesday, Sen. Patrick Leahy brought the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to the University of Vermont for a hearing on net neutrality. A bill he's cosponsoring would forbid internet service providers — like Comcast, FairPoint and Burlington Telecom — from offering so-called “fast lanes,” which allow companies to pay a premium price to reach customers more quickly. These four were among the speakers.
WHAT MULTIPLIES BENEATH
The shrimp-like spiny water flea found last week in the Glens Falls Feeder Canal now threatens Vermont. It would be Lake Champlain’s 50th aquatic invasive. Ugh.
You can’t smoke in a car with kids under age 8 — or in hotels — now that a new state law has gone into effect. What’s next — Church Street? Looks like it.
The state is paying a Rutland family $450,000 for the mistake of an exterminator, who used a banned chemical to rid their home of bedbugs. At least someone’s sleeping easier.
Burlington officials are seriously considering public disposal sites for hypodermic needles because people are tossing them in the drains and trash. Gross.
That’s how many beds there are in the Vermont Psychiatric Care Hospital in Berlin, which opened Tuesday. The facility partially replaces the 54-bed Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury, which Tropical Storm Irene destroyed in 2011.
MOST POPULAR ITEMS ON SEVENDAYSVT.COM
1. “Yes, a Zebra Roams in Vermont” by Alicia Freese. We still haven’t found Champ, but there’s a zebra in the hills of Reading. 2. “Eco-Warrior Paul Watson Brings Sea Shepherds to Vermont” by Alicia Freese. More than 100 members of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society traveled to Vermont to discuss activism on the high seas. 3. “Big Blues: Vermont Braces for a Post-IBM World” by Paul Heintz. IBM is reportedly nearing a deal to sell its chip-making division, and the state is bracing for the potential job losses. 4. “Growler Garage to Open in South Burlington” by Hannah Palmer Egan. The new store promises 20 draft lines as well as rare bottles and cans when it opens. We’re surprised people aren’t already lined up. 5. “A Feline Toilet-Training Tutorial” by Courtney Copp. If you’ve ever wanted to teach your cat to use the pot, this illustrated guide will help.

FEEDback READER REACTION TO RECENT ARTICLES
I enjoyed reading the article about Peter Schumann, founder and artistic director of Bread and Puppet Theater [“Living Art,” June 18]. The writer made an error when referring to Silesia as a town. Silesia is a region of Poland.
Hampshire’s economy over the years. New Hampshire Republicans understand that their prosperity blossoms when pro-business Republicans are in office in Concord, and progressive high-tax, high-regulation, high-mandate majorities rule in Montpelier. John McClaughry
Katherine Bielawa Stamper
Very nice article [“Living Art,” June 18]. I have read a lot about Bread and Puppet over the years but actually learned something new reading your piece. Good portrayal of Schumann, too. Warren Schultz
NEW YORK, N.Y.
NOT NEW HAMPSHIRE!
[Re “Tim Newcomb,” June 11]: Your graphically talented but substantively challenged cartoonist Tim Newcomb offered up a cartoon of anguished Republican elephants, purporting to explain that their biggest base of support was located in … New Hampshire! Having lived within sight of New Hampshire for 50 years, please allow me to explain to your Left Coast readership that New Hampshire Republicans are a strong base of support — not for Vermont’s Republicans but for Vermont’s Democrats. That’s because Democratic policies in Vermont have done wonders for New
24/7 LAKE THREAT
[Re “Oil and Water: Trains Hauling More Crude Along Lake Champlain,” June 18]: Sure, there is a debacle-in-waiting every time crude oil is railroaded near Lake Champlain. But of far greater danger — 24 hours a day, seven days a week — is the ongoing destruction of the natural landscape of the lake’s watershed. Every time a woodlot — much less a whole forest — is leveled for development and more impervious surface is created, the lake suffers more pollution. No wonder algae blooms are a near-constant threat to water quality and fish and wildlife. Alan C. Gregory
‘BOMB TRAIN’ SOLUTION
The wicked truth is the natural gas liquids — the explosive part — can be removed from Bakken crude before it gets shipped [“Oil and Water: Trains Hauling More Crude Along Lake Champlain,” June 18]. This is standard practice at Texas’ Eagle Ford shale formation, due to pipeline pressure limitations. You need a stabilizer

They are 99 percent free almost all the time. Hordes of bicyclists mowing down geriatric pedestrians? Not a valid argument. Expect people to act in a responsible and civil manner and, strangely enough, most do! If they don’t, then take appropriate action. I see both groups already sharing the sidewalk every day on North Avenue. I grew up in a much larger city where it worked because people — not laws — made it work. Most people can do this. It’s just that simple. Let’s fix real problems. tony Gallucci
I had just come in the door of my house, put down the recent Animal Issue of Seven Days, and here is what happened. As you can see, Jasper the Cat approves. robyn madison danbY

In Feedback [“Bike-Unfriendly Burlington,” June 18], Richard Watts concludes, “great cities deserve great bike infrastructures.” His comments and concerns are valid, but I differ in opinion on that one comment. We have an infrastructure in most all of Burlington: It’s called a sidewalk.
We find the deals, you get the savings
Live the High Life Pay a Low Price
Let me start out by explaining that I’m agnostic and don’t follow any religion. I am, however, a religion major at the University of Vermont. Your paper posted a highly offensive comic regarding GMOs [“Tim Newcomb,” June 18]. The tagline being “G(MO)HAD,” as in Jihad. It portrayed those against GMO labeling as Islamic extremists. I’d like all Seven Days readers to understand that a jihad is not related to terrorism in any way. Someone’s jihad is that one’s struggle to fulfill one’s religious purpose. There have been Twitter campaigns in an effort to take back the term #myjihad. It is completely unacceptable to me for anyone to use a religious group to portray something considered negative in the public view in the way that those against GMO labeling are in Vermont. I am appalled that anyone would think that this OK. It’s profiling and ignorant.
I am writing in response to the individual who feels that the bike path is a suitable alternative to providing consistent bike lanes in Burlington, specifically in the New North End [Feedback, “Take the Bike Path,” June 18]. As a former year-round bike commuter, it is my opinion that the bike path should be for recreation only and is not appropriate for commuters or road bikers. First, it is very rarely a direct route to where you are going, therefore increasing your commute. Second, it is unsafe to ride your bicycle at high speeds on the bike path. Forcing all bikers onto the bike path is dangerous for the recreational bikers, joggers and walkers who also use it. For these reasons, we need consistent bike lanes throughout the Burlington area, as well as cyclists who are following the rules of the road.

FRAMING THE SECOND ANNUAL CARTOON ISSUE
hy turn a whole issue of Seven Days into a big comic book? Well, besides being a creative challenge, comic art actually lends itself well to what this newspaper is all about. A sequential medium that tells stories with both words and images is ready-made for journalistic purposes. Cartooning long ago shed its “Sunday funnies” stigma and now is arguably in a golden age — one that has ushered in a multitude of new indie comics, bestselling books, comic video games and even, in the case of Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home, a graphic memoir-turnedmusical. The stories that comics can tell are not limited by length or topic, and their stripped-down format is a powerful way to convey ideas, whether in a news item or an art review or an advice column. Another reason to go graphic: Vermont has become an internationally recognized center for comic art. Much of the credit is due to White River Junction’s
Center for Cartoon Studies, from which several of this issue’s contributors have graduated. (And many of those who didn’t have another Vermont connection.) Ours is also the only state to appoint an official Cartoonist Laureate, and we’re proud that this issue holds contributions from both the first (James Kochalka of Burlington) and the recently anointed (Edward Koren of Brookfield). Cartooning is plainly thriving in Vermont. And finally, comics are just cool. They’re enjoyable to read, more complex than they appear, and brimming with literary and illustrative verve. What more could a reader want from a story — of any kind? Most of the artists herein collaborated with Seven Days reporters, but a few wrote and illustrated their own tales. Take a moment to meet the cartoonists here — we asked them all to draw self-portraits — and then, please enjoy our second annual cartoon issue.

ot only has Merle Haggard written some of country music’s greatest songs, he’s also led a hell of an interesting life. Haggard has rubbed shoulders with every member of the countrymusic royal family, as well as with some pretty colorful convicts. But in creating a comic-book version of a representative incident from the singer’s rich biography, my colleague, cartoonist Aaron Shrewsbury, and I were drawn to a different kind of story – one that shows Haggard’s emotional side. The story so far (liberally adapted from Haggard’s 1981 autobiography, Sing Me Back Home): On tour in 1976, Merle stays up late one night in a Reno motel room, drinking and smoking. He’s overcome with desire for a certain country songstress, and his memory drifts back to two cherished incidents: one on a shared tour bus, and another at the county fair where he first heard young Dolly sing. This page is an excerpt from that story.

SEVEN DAYS: How did you arrive at your legal specialty? LADDIE LUSHIN: I left my job [giving legal aid to Illinois prisoners] when we moved to Vermont. Then I had to decide: What was I going to do with my life? In addition to having a law degree [from the University of Chicago], I have a CPA certificate. The thing that came to my attention was cooperatives, which need both legal and accounting assistance. It’s turned out that I use both of those skills almost every day. I discovered that the area of practice I had gotten myself into was undeveloped. There were lawyers around for co-ops, but these were things like huge
ttorney Laddie Lushin has never advertised his services. Nor does he try headlinegrabbing cases or drive a glossy sedan. He is, in sum, far removed from his sharply tailored peers. But Lushin’s area of specialization also distinguishes him from most other attorneys: cooperative law. A Braintree resident, Lushin (pronounced “LOO-shin”; “Laddie” is short for Ladislaus) moved to Vermont from Chicago in the late 1970s. He Name chose a new Laddie Lushin home where cooperatively run Town businesses have Braintree a strong foothold: Groceries, Job utilities, even Expert in ski resorts opercooperative law ate as co-ops in Vermont. Yet the great majority of his business comes from out of state, Lushin says, as few other U.S. lawyers share his bailiwick. Lushin’s local clients have enthusiastic praise for him and his work. Without his help, “We would have been struggling for years to get good legal bylaws,” says Dan MacArthur, chair of the board of the Marlboro Cooperative grocery store. “He just said, ‘Here’s what you should be doing.’ Everything he suggested was just right.” John Quinney, general manager of Colchester-based Energy Co-op of Vermont, describes Lushin as “someone who’s obviously got really strong values,” and even calls him “an unsung hero” — phrases seldom used to describe lawyers.
SD: Why is it so important for a coop’s bylaws to be legally sound? LL: Bylaws provide guidance for operational decision making, and the framework for resolving problems easily and favorably. For example: Access to books and records should be available to any interested co-op member, since they have ownership stakes in the co-op. But this can be used in ways that are disadvantageous for the co-op. With a food co-op, the manager of the competing store down the road can acquire an ownership interest in the co-op, but it’s not appropriate for that person to be given access to books and records … You have to have provisions on that subject in your organizing documents. SD: You’ve made it a point to avoid legalese in your writing. Why is that? LL: Bylaws serve as guidance for proper governance and practice of the organization, so they’ve got to be usable, readable and accessible to members. That’s why I like to write in plain English — so people can find the answers they’re looking for without having to read a 10page document. SD: Why do you think cooperatives have been so successful in Vermont? LL: I think it’s because of the progressive character of the state and the people in it. There’s a bigger percentage of cooperatives that pop up in such places than in most other states. But cooperatives aren’t a left-wing phenomenon at all. They transcend left or right, Democrats or Republicans. Everyone can get into it because it’s a mutually beneficial thing.
agricultural co-ops in the Midwest. But for smaller organizations like consumer co-ops, there wasn’t any development of how the law applied. I saw myself immersed in issues that no one had worked out. Things like federal income-tax law, securities law, consumer protection laws. I had to essentially develop the law of cooperatives in order to function in that field. SD: Some of your clients say they feel you have a personal investment in cooperative principles. Is that so? LL: Definitely. I was mainly interested in doing public-service kinds of things, not just in helping the people with the most bucks. I was looking for something different, and cooperatives certainly
fit that scheme, because their business operations are organized on completely different principles than the prevailing model. SD: Why do you think your clients seem so appreciative of your services? LL: Up until very recently, there weren’t any other cooperative specialists, other than myself, in the whole country. Without me, [clients’] only choice was to go to a local lawyer who had no idea what the problems and solutions are for co-ops. It turns out that a good part of my time is spent correcting inappropriate legal advice from someone who didn’t know enough about the subject.
SD: I read that you describe yourself as an anarchist. True? LL: I do consider myself an anarchist. SD: You don’t hear a lot of lawyers say that. LL: No, you don’t. It’s a philosophical position, and it’s one reason I do the kind of work that I do. It’s consistent with my value structure. I guess it tends to manifest itself in a lifestyle that is not typical of a lawyer. m

THE STRAIGHT DOPE BY CECIL ADAMS
Why is it so many gay people are attracted to those of the same sex who look like the opposite sex? If you are a gay man and presumably do not fancy women, why are you nonetheless attracted to other men who copy feminine qualities? If you don’t want women, it seems strange to want your male partner to act and look like one! The same for lesbians — they don’t like men, yet many of them try to look like men and seem to find that attractive in their female partners. Nancy slim bodies. However, that’s hardly evidence of a lesbian preference for masculine-looking partners. While straights may prefer thin bodies today, a glance through an art history book suggests the earth-mother type (heavyset, usually but not always with prominent breasts and hips) has been a muchadmired physique throughout history, presumably by parties of various sexual orientations. • One study of personal ads from 1997 found that in ads placed by lesbians, 75 percent of the terms used to describe sought-after traits in a partner were characteristically feminine (most frequently seen: the word “feminine” itself ), whereas 95 percent of the traits that the women actively didn’t want were masculine. Further support, in my opinion, for the hypothesis that among lesbians the most popular type is the earth mother. • Generalizing about gay males is tougher. The same study of personal ads found more than 96 percent of the traits gay men sought in their partners were
characteristically masculine, and all of the undesirable traits were feminine. What exactly those terms mean is debatable, though — gay men have been found to exhibit a wider spectrum of stereotypically masculine and feminine mannerisms and speech patterns than straight men. It may be helpful to distinguish body type and behavioral preferences. Surveys notwithstanding, gay men’s appreciation of a well-toned male body surely is at least the equal of straight men’s tendency to drool over a shapely woman; nobody’s going to claim the gay guys at CrossFit look effeminate.

while more material concerns (“successful,” “financially secure,” “owns a nice house”) were at the bottom. • The problem with such surveys, of course, is that respondents may simply be saying what they think they ought to say. An alternative gauge of what people find attractive is what they ask for in personal ads (granted, few are entirely frank in this venue, either). A common finding is that straight men tend to look for physical attractiveness and promise financial success, while straight women look for success and promise attractiveness. In contrast, lesbians advertising for partners generally downplay attractiveness and success and emphasize personality traits such as sincerity and honesty. • A 2001 study asking lesbian and bisexual women what body types they considered most attractive found a strong preference for heavy, bigbreasted physiques, followed closely by heavy, smallbreasted ones. This contrasts with heterosexuals, with both sexes strongly preferring
h, a fellow anthropologist, just back from the field. How shrewd of you to disguise yourself as a complete dumbshit. Needless to say, gays’ and lesbians’ appearance and behavior don’t line up especially well with stereotypes based on atypical examples. You see some pretty serious actingout in the World Cup; it’d be foolish to conclude from this that all Uruguayans bite. What we need is some data. The scholarly literature on what homosexuals find attractive isn’t as robust as we might like, and for some reason has focused more on lesbians than gay men. However, we do find the following: • Asking people what they find attractive in a romantic partner tends to produce predictable results. For example, in a 2010 survey conducted in northern California, both lesbians and gay men reported that what they’d initially been most attracted to in their partners were personality traits: “fun,” “sense of humor” and “intelligent” were at the top of the list for both groups. Physical characteristics (“sexy,” “appearance,” “nice body”) were in the middle,
Behavior is another story. A perennial controversy in the gay community pits “gay-acting” types against gay males who in terms of manner and appearance are indistinguishable from straights. • A related question is whether in a gay or lesbian relationship one of the partners habitually assumes the masculine role while the other plays the female. True, a subset of lesbians identify as either butch (masculine) or femme (feminine). However, one study of lesbians and bisexual women found butch types accounted for at most 15 percent. Assuming butch and femme women pair off, such couples would be in the minority of lesbian relationships. • A study of gay Latino men found that their adoption of dominant or submissive roles was situational and depended upon the perceived masculinity of their partners. If they considered a partner more masculine than themselves, they’d be more likely to play the pasivo (bottom) during sex. Conversely, if their partner was less masculine, they were more likely to be the activo (top). So, do gay men and lesbians find different things attractive than straights do? Absolutely. Does that mean gays prefer girly men and lesbians prefer mannish women? That’s absurd.

eaders of the New Yorker can recognize Edward Koren’s work at a glance: His frizzy, big-nosed characters have, over five decades and more than 1,000 drawings, become icons of the magazine’s commitment to cartooning. Residents of Vermont know — or should know — that Koren is only the second person to hold the title of State Cartoonist Laureate. (The work of the first Vermont cartoonist laureate, James Kochalka, is also featured in this issue; see page 24.)
Great Songs from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s
But few beyond Koren’s neighbors know that, for the past 26 years, he has been a volunteer with the Brookfield Volunteer Fire Department. Koren calls his other, less public job a “tonic,” in that it allows him to connect with his community — and to occasionally escape from the demands of his drawing board. Even when he’s inking, he wears his emergency pager. Koren is a modest fellow, reluctant to write or draw about his own life. But he kindly agreed to Seven Days’ request to write and illustrate a firehouse anecdote that humorously shows how he finds the balance between his two unusual careers. m

Making the most of Vermont’s shortest season b Y H ANNAH pAl mE r E gA N
We’re a preciously small batch vodka hand crafted in Iceland.
his past weekend, strawberries hit peak season, and across the state, small towns celebrated with strawberry festivals — afternoon affairs where locals convene for the sole purpose of eating strawberry shortcake. For Seven Days’ second annual Cartoon Issue, we offer a fanciful take on this delicious, age-old Vermont tradition.
Pleased to meet you.
The heyday passed in the postwar period — due to blights, plagues and general agricultural decline — but Bradford continues to host an annual strawberry festival featuring berries from Pierson Farm and other area fields. The fest was last weekend, but Vermont’s farms are still heavy with fruit, so if you haven’t already, go pick a pint and have yourself a shortcake.
VERMONT’S FARMS ARE STILL HEAVY WITH FRUIT, SO IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY, GO PICK A PINT

4/14/14 12:37 PM
The Vermont side of the Upper Valley has a long strawberry history. Local historian Larry Coffin (disclosure: he was my teacher in high school), says Bradford’s wide, fertile plain was once “synonymous with really fine strawberries.” Between the 1840s and the 1960s, demand was so high that stores in Boston and New York would advertise “Bradford Berries” even if the fruit was actually grown elsewhere. At that time, Coffin writes on his blog In Times Past, migrant families flocked to the area, camping in the fields during the berry harvest. Several trains a day stopped at Bradford’s depot to take on berries, and the railroad built an extra siding south of town to accept bushels from outlying fields.
Seven Days caught up with Bradford Strawberry Festival’s Linda Moore, who says the recipe is a snap: “Most of the [shortcakes] are Bisquick,” she says. “It’s just the recipe from the box.” Every other Vermonter I know makes them the same way. As for the berries, Moore says it starts with a taste test. “It’s about how sweet the berries are,” she says. “That changes by year. And at the end of the season, they’re sweeter … The trouble is, we don’t measure anything, we just throw sugar in until it’s right.” Also, buying the right cream helps: “The secret to the cream is using heavy cream, not ‘whipping cream,’” Moore advises. “You can whip it the day before and it will not separate.” m Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

That’s Basque and you’re eating Basque food,” he says. McGinnis wants to keep prices low: A meatloaf sandwich on challah packs a full-size portion for $5.95, and many dishes ring up under $5, a price point he plans to maintain by sourcing food locally. “Certain things I can’t get locally,” McGinnis acknowledges. “You’re not going to find avocado here.

McGinnis says he likes Spanish food for its comparative lightness. “I didn’t feel like I was anchored to the ground every time I ate a Spanish cheese,” he says, his voice humming with hardscrabble Jersey inflection. McGinnis’ gait is a tough-guy swagger, but when chatting about food, he’s all friendly smiles. He’s clearly excited to bring fine Spanish cheese and charcuterie — manchego and iberico cheeses, dry-cured smoked chorizo and Serrano ham — to Vermont. (He’ll also serve a selection of local cheeses.) In addition to meat and cheese, Pop Pop’s menu will

But restaurants being restaurants — invariably delayed — the date got pushed back until … now. The storefront restaurant, located in the Essex Towne Marketplace, soft-opened late last week with an abridged menu and will welcome guests for the first night of full service this Saturday, July 5. Chef-owner McGinnis says he hopes the tapas joint — northern Vermont’s only — will become an early-evening social hub. “I’d like to bring the [Spanish] tradition of going out after work for a couple cocktails, maybe some light snacks, to this area.”
offer a rotating cast of bocadillos (sandwiches), pinxtos (finger snacks) and à la carte small plates. The chef-owner, a South Jersey native, says he got into Spanish cooking while working at a school for youth offenders doing time in adult prison. “It was a pretty notorious school for a lot of the things that happened there. It was notoriously — hair-raising,” he says. “Jersey’s tough.” But the kitchen was a great place to unwind. “I’d come home and spend a couple hours cooking dinner,” McGinnis says. In Essex, the small space is set up for convivial dining and punctuated by fun details that give it a sense of place. Diners can gather around a broken U-shaped bar for rum tastings and Spanish wines and cocktails (at press time, the liquor license is pending)
But with everything else, I’m going to do everything I can to buy local and cut the middle-man prices out.” And, though he says he hasn’t found the right local charcuterie supplier just yet, he is undeterred: “Oh, I’ll get it. I will find that charcuterie.” — h.P.E.

THE GRYPHON LANDS IN BURLINGTON’S VERMONT HOUSE
Proximity to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts is a major ingredient in PAIGE GROSS’ plans for her new restaurant, the GRYPHON. The restaurant space on Burlington’s Main Street is currently being restored and renovated to capitalize on its location in the historic Vermont House, most recently filled by Ramen. Gross says she sees the Gryphon as a pre- and post-theater destination with American bistro fare and a full-service bar. “I want it to be casual and comfortable, but also a place to have an upscale, nice meal if you need to,” she says. Gross is opening the restaurant with her husband, TOM CHADWICK, and her ex-husband, chef ANDREA GROSS, with whom she previously owned a restaurant in Pinehurst, N.C. “He’s been a chef for about 40 years; he’s wonderful,” says Andrea Gross’ amicable ex. The chef is a native of Switzerland, but after spending recent years cooking in a German restaurant, Paige Gross says, he’s burnt out on his native cuisine and looking forward to trying something new. Gryphon diners will probably find traces of Alpine fare only in a seasonal game dish, Paige Gross says. They’re more likely to taste hints of spice reminiscent of her Alabama upbringing. The 50-seat restaurant will serve lunch and dinner, as well as Sunday brunch. Though the space will boast comfy leather couches and a new bar, “I don’t really want it to be a bar scene,” says Gross. “We want people to come out of the Flynn and have a nice dinner.” — A.L.

Wielding the Pen Among political cartoonists, Jeff Danziger is a living legend. Twice short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize, he regularly contributes to publications such as the New York Times and, since 1975, the Times Argus and Rutland Herald. Splitting his time between New York City and his home in Groton, the artist maintains strong ties to Vermont — having first moved to the state in 1971 upon returning from the Vietnam War. Known for biting social commentary, Danziger’s unapologetic art has earned him legions of fans and foes. His most recent book, The Conscience of a Cartoonist, offers an in-depth exploration of post-9/11 America.

What Caddyshack is to cinema, The Fox on the Fairway is to the stage. This comedic romp through Quail Valley Country Club features a motley crew of characters entrenched in the drama surrounding an annual golf tournament with a rival club. Reminiscent of the Marx Brothers’ over-the-top comedies, Ken Ludwig’s homage to the great farces of the 1930s and ’40s keeps audience members on the edge of their seats. From mistaken identities to romantic pitfalls, a fastpaced series of catastrophes propels this laugh-a-minute Saint Michael’s Playhouse production, starring top theatrical talents directed by Kathryn Markey.
‘The Fox on the Fairway’ Wednesday, July 2, and Thursday, July 3, 8 p.m.; Saturday, July 5, 2 and 8 p.m.; Tuesday, July 8, and Wednesday, July 9, 8 p.m., at McCarthy Arts Center, St. Michael’s College, in Colchester. See website for future dates. $35-44. Info, 654-2281. saintmichaelsplayhouse.org
here are no two ways around it: JJ Grey was born to make music. The Florida native stops listeners in their tracks with a style the New York Times describes as “impassioned singing, riff-based Southern rock, cold-blooded swamp funk and sly Memphis soul.” Known for live shows fueled by his gravely voice, soulful guitar and no-nonsense songwriting, Grey lays everything on the line each time he takes the stage. Backed by his band Mofro, he delivers upbeat dance tunes and heartwrenching ballads in equal measure at the Jay Peak Music Series and the Montréal International Jazz Festival.

Emily Shepard lives in an igloo made of trash bags filled with frozen leaves. As a teenage runaway, she fled to Burlington after a meltdown in a Northeast Kingdom nuclear power plant — possibly caused by her father — killed both parents. Orphaned, homeless and haunted by her past, the narrator of Chris Bohjalian’s latest novel Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands crafts a new identify in the face of an uncertain future. Kicking off his Rock and Roll Book Tour, the best-selling author joins fellow wordsmith Stephen Kiernan for an onstage interview. Lit lovers, take note: Attendees have the chance to win a character named after them in Bohjalian’s next novel.

THE HORSE’S ASS
WORDS BY DAN BOLLES (ADAPTED FROM A TRUE STORY BY TOM BANJO) ART BY TOM AZARIAN AKA TOM BANJO
“cranky show” is an old-timey form of entertainment in which hand-drawn images on a scroll are hand-cranked across a screen or small stage. These are typically accompanied by a musician, who tells the story on the scrolls in song form. Tom Banjo — aka Tom Azarian — is the local master of the cranky show and can often be found at Burlington’s Radio Bean cranking out humorous yarns, often based on popular folk tales, of runaway meatballs, stubborn mules and wayward cats. So for our Cartoon Issue, we asked Tom to tell us a story from his own life … and then illustrate it. We then adapted his story in lyric form, in an attempt to re-create a cranky show in print. Feel free to hum along.
Well, Farmer Joe was a mean old sot, with a mouthful of chew and a soul full o’ rot. Swearin’ an Spittin’ through the rows he’d glide, lashin’ his old mare ‘til she nearly died.
When I was 12 my brother and me worked on the farm pickin’ tobacco leaves. On our knees, between the rows pickin’ and pickin’ all summer we’d go.
One day, mean old Farmer Joe reared up that poor horse aside our row. From his snarlin’ mouth he spit a wad and a brown ball of goo plopped on the sod.
Just then the tail lifted on the ol’ mare and a brown ball come droppin’ outta there! And on that day in ’47 in Western Mass, ‘Twas hard to tell - which was the horse’s ass!

KING BUZZO (OFEMMA THERUTH MELVINS) RUNDLE
I’ve been publicly harassing, er, urging local psych-rock duo PourS to release their debut record pretty much since front man brYAN PArmELEE dissolved his old band PArmAGA and teamed up with ex-mAN mAN and SANtiGoLD drummer chriS ShAr about two years ago. Mostly that’s because I was a big fan of Parmaga and, from what I’ve seen live, Pours pick up where that band left off and take Parmelee’s ethereal, popcentric compositions into even spacier new territory. I like spacey. I’m delighted to announce that Pours are finally releasing that long-awaited self-titled debut with a release show at the Monkey House in Winooski this Sunday, July 6, with Albuquerque’s You — with whom Pours will immediately head out on tour. And I gotta say, the record is worth the wait. Not to spoil the review, which we’ll have in these pages in a couple of weeks, but the new album suggests an increasing musical maturity in Parmelee. His songwriting has never been better or more adventurous. He retains the pop sensibility that made
It’s Fourth of July week. So in the midst of all that flag-waving patriotism, it only makes sense that we begin this week’s column by talking about Canada. Just work with me, OK? Historically, for an American band to play in Canada, it meant navigating a byzantine gauntlet of wonky permits, confusing regulations, sticky international laws and charmingly funny accents. Especially for independent artists hailing from regions close to the U.S.Canada border, the payoff for gigging in the Great White North was rarely enough to justify the hassle. Regardless of the exchange rate, shit pay is shit pay in any country. Over the years, I’ve heard numerous stories of local bands — who shall remain nameless so as not to alert homeland security — employing all manner of shenanigans to cross the border for gigs. One: telling border agents the seven guitars, nine amps, four groupies, drum set and boxes of merch in the van were just for playing at “a friend’s birthday party.” Another: stowing band members with questionable international legal status in the car’s trunk. (Yes, really.) The challenges of gigging in Canada were made even more difficult last year, when that country’s government altered the regulations placed on non-Canadian bands touring there. The legislation created something called Labor Market Opinion fees, which essentially made playing in Canada financially impossible for American artists not named LADY GAGA or JAY-Z. In addition to the previous temporary work permit fee of $150 per individual band member or $450 per band, the new regs added a whopping $275 per individual. That meant a singer-songwriter would have to lay out $425 to play legit gigs north of the border. Doesn’t sound too crazy, right? Until you realize that your average quartet would pay more than $1,500. You can do the math on an eight-member group such as KAt wriGht & thE iNDomitAbLE SouL bAND. Suffice it to say, that’s a lot of loonies. Given that we’ve allowed
Canada to molest our ears with NicKELbAcK and JuStiN biEbEr with impunity, that seemed like a raw deal. As it turns out, the Canadian government agrees. At least on the excessive fees part. We’re still waiting for an official apology for Nickelback and the Biebs. (Ed. note: I’ll take your Nickelback and Biebs and raise you one Leonard Cohen and two McGarrigles. Or Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. Oscar Peterson and Diana Krall. K.d. lang and Gordon Lightfoot. Or, hell, Drake and Barenaked Ladies.) Last week, Canada created an exemption to the LMO fee for small clubs and bars. This comes after the original legislation had drawn strong vocal opposition on both sides of the border, including from organizations such as the American Association of Independent Music and the Canadian Independent Music Association. A petition to reverse the legislation on the website Change.org scored more than 140,000 signatures. But wait, there’s more. In addition to the LMO exemption, Canada also ditched the work permit fee for touring musicians. That means gigging in Canada is now easier than it’s ever been, at least financially. And that’s kind of a big deal. Local bands have numerous opportunities to reach local ears at local clubs, but breaking out of the cozy confines of the Green Mountains has always been a challenge. The simple fact is that Burlington is something of an outpost, not particularly close to any major American cities, let alone touring circuits. Unlike bands from, say, Brooklyn, who have dozens of cities in which to play within a four-hour drive, it takes a Burlington band that long just to get to Boston. That makes touring problematic.

Jazz Hands, Beeyatch! We bet when rapper
just coming up amid so much drama in the LBC, he never planned on one day headlining the world’s largest jazz festival. For one thing, it’s kinda hard being Snoop J-A-doublezee. And yet the Doggfather will do just that at Métropolis this Friday, July 4, as part of the 35th Festival International de Jazz de Montréal. But chill to the next episode, hepcats, while you muthaf[PARENTAL ADVISORY]ers bounce to this: There’s still plenty of actual jazz at the Montréal jazz fest, including the likes of Christian McBride, Dianne Reeves, Ginger Baker, Keith Jarrett, Terence Blanchard and Tony Bennett, to name
a handful of the hundreds of performers of all genres, jazz and otherwise, who will play the fest. The Montréal jazz fest began last week and runs through Sunday, July 6. For more, visit montrealjazzfest.com.

This year, the party is curated by the cool kids from local booking collective Friends + Family. The psych-popheavy lineup includes SECRET LOVER from Worcester, Mass., Northampton’s SAM GAS CAN, locals SUPER BONHEUR and mysterious NYC pop-punk outfit NANCY — not to be confused with the Louisiana-based queer-punk band of the same name.

KInG BUzzo, aka Roger “Buzz” Osborne, is the sole remaining founding member of seminal punk band the Melvins.
On his new solo album, This Machine Kills Artists, Osborne strips down, musically speaking, with a mostly acoustic record. Though quieter than his work with the Melvins, songs such as “Dark Brown Teeth,” “Drunken Baby” and “How I Became Offensive” still exude the winking, churlish charm and humor for which he’s become known. King Buzzo plays the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington this Sunday, July 6, with songwriter Emma RUTH RUnDLE. fri.4

Transformers: Age of Extinction (no stars)
PRIME TIME At nearly three hours, Bay’s latest may be movie history’s most epic-length allegory for the war on terror to feature alien robots that can turn into cars.
ichael Bay didn’t invent sequels, one-dimensional characters, laughable dialogue, product placement or deafening, incomprehensible action sequences. He’s just made them synonymous with summer movies. The guy’s an evil genius. Everybody knows these films suck, yet practically everybody sees them anyway. Transformers: Age of Extinction, the fourth in Bay’s series inspired by Hasbro toys, sucks a lot. It may be the crappiest movie ever made. It’s so stupid and terrible it makes even its good characters look bad. This time those characters include, in addition to the giant contraptions, Oscar nominee Mark Wahlberg as the least convincing
inventor in cinematic history. He plays a widower named Cade Yeager who divides his time between building defective robots in his Texas barn and telling his 17-year-old daughter, Tessa (Nicola Peltz), that her cutoffs are too short. Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf once played the token humans in these films, but Fox has gone on to establish herself as a credible screen performer (Passion Play, This Is 40), while LaBeouf has just gone nuts. Injecting an actor of Wahlberg’s pedigree into the franchise is a credibility-boosting ploy that does succeed. For most of the first five minutes. We meet Cade and sidekick Lucas (T.J. Miller) as they root around a shuttered
movie house in search of retoolable detritus. What the pair finds is the theater’s crotchety owner. The scene is tailor-made for a commentary on the state of cinema, and, sure enough, the old guy goes meta: “Movies nowadays,” he snarls (a spittoon would’ve been a nice touch here). “Sequels and remakes — a bunch of crap!” See what Bay did there? It’s self-referential. Like 22 Jump Street, only without the fun. The pair also stumbles across a dusty semi that’s inexplicably parked inside and turns out to be Autobot leader Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen). The plot: Though the Transformers have thrice saved the world, the CIA has decided they’re “alien combatants” to be hunted down and destroyed. Kelsey Grammer is kill-squad head Harold Attinger, a role that — to put it kindly — he was not born to play. Imagine Zero Dark Thirty with Frasier in charge, and you get the picture. The film’s bold statement about terrorism? It’s bad. The Transformers are simultaneously targeted by an alien robo-hitman called Lockdown (Mark Ryan). The movie is only 165 minutes long, so it’d probably be too much to expect Ehren Kruger’s script to explain why any of these sinister cartoons wants the part-time cars dead. It has bigger fish to fry.
Or, rather, bigger crashes, explosions and city-flattening battles with which to pummel our senses. Cade and Tessa join forces with the Transformers, and the chaos moves for no reason from the Arctic to Texas to Chicago and, ultimately, to Hong Kong. Well, no reason except filling Chinese theater seats. Bay’s movies may be stupid, but he’s not. Good luck making sense of the mayhem SCAN — or, half the time, even making out which WITH L hunk of metal is doing what to whom, much SEE PA less why. Apart from the product placements for everything from Bud Light to Chevrolet to Samsung to Beats by Dre, the only thing the director makes crystal clear is that the climax sets the stage for further sequels even now in the works. Thank God, a reason to get up in the morning. I’ll suggest a product that would’ve been well placed in this film: Excedrin. Because coming soon to a frontal lobe near you is the mother of all migraines. Transfourmers, as I like to call it, is everything you could want in a big-budget tentpole, so long as what you want is sound and fury signifying nothing beyond a guarantee that more of the same is already on the way.

Obvious Child ★★★★
illian Robespierre has said that she was inspired to write and direct the short film that became Obvious Child by a spate of romantic comedies in which a pregnant heroine decides not to have an abortion. She wanted to go where the makers of Juno and Knocked Up would not, and viewers’ reactions to the finished product may depend, to an extent, on how they feel about the breaking of that particular cinematic taboo. But Obvious Child is not a message movie; expect no preaching about reproductive rights or anything else. True to her claim that she liked those mainstream rom coms, Robespierre has given her comedy the cheerful vulgarity of a Judd Apatow flick and the quirk-camouflaged romanticism of Juno or Waitress. Because most of that vulgarity emerges from the mouth of the heroine, standup comedian Donna Stern (Jenny Slate), Obvious Child is still a bit of a novelty. Don’t see it unless you’re comfortable with hearing a woman graphically discuss the state of her panties (hint: not clean) in the first five minutes. Donna does that as part of her free-form standup act, where she also makes relationship confessions that eventually send her boyfriend into the arms of another woman. Dumped, tanked and about to lose her job at a Brooklyn bookstore, she hooks up with a clean-cut Vermonter named Max (Jake Lacy). (This movie offers yet more proof
that, for flatlanders, “WASP-y,” “wholesome” and “Vermont” are synonymous.) The encounter Donna can barely remember leaves her in an interesting condition: “I remember seeing the condom,” she tells her best friend/Greek chorus (Gaby Hoffmann), “but I can’t remember if it was on.” That pickle, of course, complicates her tentative efforts to build something real with Max. Rather than presenting a radically original take on the rom com, Robespierre has realized a thought experiment on film: How would Knocked Up play from the perspective of Seth Rogen’s female equivalent? Donna is essentially the same confuzzled, immature twentysomething we’ve seen on “Girls” and in dozens of recent movie comedies (where the character is more often a man-child). Her character and storyline offer few surprises, but the writing is sharp, and the editing matches it. Slate, a “Saturday Night Live” alumna and the voice of YouTube sensation Marcel the Shell, plays her role to the hilt, delivering her raunchy riffing in a wispy little voice that’s alternately grating and adorable. She’s like the live-wire, no-filter friend you can’t stop hanging out with, though a whole afternoon with her makes you climb the walls. Luckily, Obvious Child is less than 90 minutes long, and a decent number of those minutes are funny or touching. The movie will probably make Slate a star. I didn’t find it as fresh as the similar female-written in-
BREAKUP GOGGLES A nasty split sends Slate into the arms of a stranger in Robespierre’s comedy.
die comedies For a Good Time, Call… and In a World…, but it’s telling that we can still count points of comparison on one hand. Recent years have seen the eclipse of those pastel-cardigan rom coms where the heroine’s biggest ambition is the perfect wedding and her biggest vice is being uptight. But Hollywood doesn’t seem entirely sure how to combine the traditional wishfulfillment aspects of the rom with a franker, less genteel kind of com. Movies like this one are working out that problem.
Will audiences embrace a heroine who decides she likes a guy because he farts in front of her? One who’s unabashedly more than a little self-centered? While the abortion aspect of Obvious Child is getting the press, that may be less daring in itself than Donna’s tendency to own her choices — all of them — without a single dithering apology.

Police accused Jeremiah Scales of selling synthetic marijuana from his girlfriend’s house in Bloomington, Ind., after a nearby sign announcing “Drugs This Way” alerted them. “Our detectives did some surveillance, as well as some buys,” police Sgt. Pam Gladish said, noting that comings and goings at all hours stood out in the otherwise quiet neighborhood. (Indianapolis’s WTHR-TV)
Waste More, Tax More
The federal government spent more than $3 million to buy eight patrol boats for the Afghan police that were never delivered, according to the U.S Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, because U.S. and NATO forces decided they didn’t need them. Four years later, the boats, which cost taxpayers $325,000 more each than similar boats sold in the United States, remain in storage at a Virginia naval base. (Washington Post)
Dennis Kneier resigned as mayor of San Marino, Calif., after surveillance video caught him tossing a bag of dog feces on the walkway of neighbor Philip Lao, a vocal critic of some of the mayor’s proposals. In his letter of resignation, Kneier attributed his action to “a lapse of judgment.” (Los Angeles’s KCBS-TV)
Police arrested a Seattle woman who tossed cat feces, frozen chicken parts and a green liquid she identified as “a natural drink” from her fifth-floor apartment at participants and spectators for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. The “hail of garbage” hit at least two people, said investigators, who reported that the unidentified woman told them “she had worked a long shift and was angry that the runners had woken her from her slumber.” (Seattle Police Department)

He told police he was riding on top of a mattress and a box spring to hold them down because they weren’t secured, but they suddenly flew out, taking him with them. Police pointed out that it’s physically impossible for a human being to hold down a mattress if it goes airborne. (Shreveport’s KSLA-TV)

Four men driving outside Sulphur, La., found an 11-foot-long alligator blocking the road. They removed their shirts, threw them on the gator’s head and approached from behind, intending to jump on it. Suddenly, according to Glen Bonin, “it spun around and grabbed my hand.” Bonin needed 80 stitches but kept his arm. “I’ve always been the kind of guy who learns the hard way,” he admitted, adding that he hopes “with therapy, I’ll be able to straighten out my ring finger and pinky a little bit.” Officials of the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries stressed that anyone coming in contact
Rescuers needed a stretcher to carry a tourist who hurt his ankle while climbing one of Scotland’s highest mountains in his flip-flops. One of the injured man’s companions was barefoot; the other was wearing sneakers. After the three men explained they wanted to reach the top of Aonach Mor to experience snow for the first time, John Stevenson, leader of Lochaber Mountain Rescue team, said, “We told them next time they come back to Scotland to stand on snow, they should wear something more appropriate.” (BBC News)
German customs officials caught a man they described as “elderly” arriving from Luxembourg with four wads of cash, totaling 194,400 euros ($264,773), taped to his genitals.

Reed told the arresting officer she was going to trade the lobster tails to a friend and possibly buy food at a Chinese buffet. (Orlando Sentinel)

REAL fRee will astRology by rob brezsny july 03-09
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The Venus de Milo is a famous Greek statue that’s over 2,100 years old. Bigger than life size, it depicts the goddess of love, beauty and pleasure. Its current home is the Louvre Museum in Paris, but for hundreds of years it was lost — buried underground on the Greek island of Milos. In 1820, a farmer found it while he was out digging on his land. I foresee a comparable discovery by you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. You will uncover a source of beauty, love or pleasure — or perhaps all three — that has been missing or forgotten for a long time.
painter Ivan Albright (1897-1983) was a meticulous creator. He spent as much time as necessary to get every detail right. An entire day might go by as he worked to perfect one square inch of a painting, and some of his pieces took years to finish. When the task at hand demanded intricate precision, he used a brush composed of a single hair. That’s the kind of attention to minutia I recommend for you — not forever, but for the next few weeks. be careful and conscientious as you build the foundation that will allow you maximum freedom of movement later this year.
(July 23-Aug. 22): According to an ancient Greek myth, sisyphus keeps pushing a boulder up a steep hill only to lose control of it just before he reaches the top, watching in dismay as it tumbles to the bottom. After each failure, he lumbers back down to where he started and makes another effort to roll it up again — only to fail again. The myth says he continues his futile attempts for all eternity. I’m happy to report, Leo, that there is an important difference between your story and that of sisyphus. Whereas you have tried and tried and tried again to complete a certain uphill task, you will not be forever frustrated. In fact, I believe a breakthrough will come soon, and success will finally be yours. Will it be due to your gutsy determination or your neurotic compulsion or both? It doesn’t matter.
(Aug. 23-sept. 22): Many of America’s founding fathers believed slavery was immoral, but they owned slaves themselves and ordained the institution of slavery in the u.s. Constitution. They didn’t invent hypocrisy, of course, but theirs was an especially tragic version. In comparison,
liBRa (sept. 23-oct. 22): In the last two decades, seven Academy Award winners have given thanks to God while accepting their oscars. by contrast, 30 winners have expressed their gratitude to film studio executive Harvey Weinstein. Who would you acknowledge as essential to your success, Libra? What generous souls, loving animals, departed helpers and spiritual beings have contributed to your ability to thrive? now is an excellent time to make a big deal out of expressing your appreciation. for mysterious reasons, doing so will enhance your luck and increase your chances for future success. scoRPio (oct. 23-nov. 21): you have per-
mission to compose an all-purpose excuse note for yourself. If you’d like, you may also forge my signature on it so you can tell everyone that your astrologer sanctified it. This document will be ironclad and inviolable. It will serve as a poetic license that abolishes your guilt and remorse. It will authorize you to slough off senseless duties, evade deadening requirements, escape small-minded influences and expunge numbing habits. even better, your extra-strength excuse note will free you to seek out adventures you have been denying yourself for no good reason.
sagittaRius (nov. 22-Dec. 21): In the Inuktitut language spoken in northern Canada, the term iminngernaveersaartunngortussaavunga means “I should try not to become an alcoholic.” I encourage you to have fun saying that a lot in the coming days. Why? now is an excellent time to be playful and light-hearted as you wage war against any addictive tendencies you might have. Whether it’s booze or gambling or abusive relationships or anything else that tempts you to act like an obsessive self-saboteur, you have more power than usual to break its hold
on you — especially if you don’t take yourself too seriously.
caPRicoRN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Percival Lowell (1855-1916) was an influential astronomer who launched the exploration that led to the discovery of Pluto. He also made some big mistakes. Here’s one: Gazing at Venus through his telescope, he swore he saw spokes emanating from a central hub on the planet’s surface. but we now know that Venus is shrouded with such thick cloud cover that no surface features are visible. so what did Lowell see? Due to an anomaly in his apparatus, the telescope projected shadows from inside his eyes onto the image of Venus. The “spokes” were actually the blood vessels in his retinas. Let this example serve as a cautionary tale for you in the coming weeks, Capricorn. Don’t confuse what’s within you with what’s outside you. If you can clearly discern the difference, your closest relationships will experience healing breakthroughs. aQuaRius (Jan. 20-feb. 18): “I believe in
getting into hot water; it keeps you clean.” so said british writer G.K. Chesterton. now I’m passing his advice on to you just in time for the Purge and Purify Phase of your astrological cycle. In the coming weeks, you will generate good fortune for yourself whenever you wash your own brain and absolve your own heart and flush the shame out of your healthy sexual feelings. As you proceed with this work, it may expedite matters if you make a conscious choice to undergo a trial by fire.
Pisces (feb. 19-March 20): “I awake in a
land where the lovers have seized power,” writes Danish poet Morten sondergaard in his fanciful poem “The Lovers.” “They have introduced laws decreeing that orgasms need never come to an end. roses function as currency … The words ‘you’ and ‘I’ are now synonymous.” A world like the one he describes is a fantasy, of course. It’s impossible. but I predict that in the coming weeks you could create conditions that have resemblances to that utopia. so be audacious in your quest for amorous bliss and convivial romance. Dare to put love at the top of your priority list. And be inventive!
