‘Game of Thrones’ returns to television
BO’s hit fantasy drama “Game of Thrones” returns for its fourth season on Sunday. Coming off a devastating end to season three, this upcoming season has been billed as the most action-packed yet. While the show has typically built up to one or two momentous events each season, season four is expected to be packed with twists and turns. “Game of Thrones” is set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, and follows two main story lines. The most prominent is a power struggle between multiple households that are each trying to win control of the Seven Kingdoms. The second has to do with the impending winter and the rise of the “White Walkers,” a mythical race of zombie-like figures. But the show isn’t just plot-driven. While the characters and the story are strong, “Game of Thrones” also delves into interesting themes. It explores more contemporary issues like religion and corruption, but also issues that are a little more out-of-the-box, like civil war, incest and the social hierarchy. Of course, shows have explored these things in the past, but rarely has a show been able to effectively explore them all at once. “Game of Thrones” is perhaps most impressive in how it balances all of its
numerous characters. There are so many moving parts that it could be hard for audiences to keep up with everything that’s going on. However, the show successfully gives each character and story line enough airtime to maintain its coherence throughout. It’d be easy to give Daenerys and her Buicksized dragons more scenes just because they’re audience favorites, but “Game of Thrones” writers know that the show has to be well-rounded in order to work. As a movie, or even a series of movies, the show would be a disaster. There simply wouldn’t be enough time to develop each character and maintain a coherent plot. One of the big advantages of television is that the stories can be deeper and more complex because the creators are not beholden to a single script or time limit. It doesn’t have to be a single story; rather, it can be multiple smaller stories that fit into a grander scheme. Visually, “Game of Thrones” is incredibly impressive, in large part due to its grandiose scale. The world it has created feels vast and diverse. The show shoots on location all around Europe, in places like Ireland, but also outside Europe, in places like Morocco, Iceland and Los Angeles. The show has done an amazing job of building up its world and populating it with recognizable characters who hold emotional gravity with audiences. “Game of Thrones”’ biggest appeal is that it has a little something for everybody.

What’s your favorite drink to make? My favorite drink to make is a Bloody Mary. I’m really good at them. Least favorite drink to make? Probably a “Sex with an Alligator.” You layer the drink with different components. It’s not funny especially when you’re busy. Most memorable customer? Probably the time a customer came in and tipped me $200. He asked me how much I wanted and I said $200, and he wrote a tip for $200. Do you remember what he ordered? I think he just ordered a couple beers and an appetizer. Weirdest, strangest thing you’ve seen go down at the bar? This bar, in particular, we have college students and some other interesting people that hang out here. We had a gentleman come in here, sit at the bar, and he was a little strange. Said he wanted me to thank him for helping us here, which we’d never even known who he was and then he threw a drink and walked out. Is the Aussie Cantina known for anything in

Violence, scandal, dragons, sex, magic and blood, with characters who are worth rooting for, and others we love to loathe — like Joffrey. “Game of Thrones” delivers unexpected and devastating plot twists, but isn’t ridiculous in a way that would turn people off. For a show that takes place in a fantasy world, it has a palpable realism. While its characters may not be relatable in practice — nobody in real life gives birth to dragons — their emotional experiences are. It’s even easy to develop emotional attachments to characters who would otherwise be considered repulsive, had the show been executed poorly.
particular? Probably our kangaroo tacos. Drink-wise, we carry Foster’s, which everyone thinks Foster’s is Australia’s favorite beer and it’s not. They despise it. Everyone comes in for kangaroo tacos, Foster’s and a meat pie. As a customer, what can I do to piss you off as a bartender? Not tipping. We’re here to make money. You gotta tip, pay it forward. How often does that happen? More often than you think.
Unforgettable Pool Parties!
What can I do to make your job as easy as possible? Just be fun, be outgoing, talk to us. If anything’s wrong, let us know. If you like something, let us know that too. Just communication between each other is the best thing that you can do. Drinking trend that you would like to see go away? Fireball [Cinnamon Whiskey]. Try something else. There’s plenty of other things out there that are good.

More so than any other show currently on television, “Game of Thrones” feels like a weekly event, with anticipation for the next episode beginning the second the latest one has finished — think the final eight episodes of “Breaking Bad.” The show dominates Sunday nights, which are lauded as the best night of the week for television. We have yet to find out who will end up atop the Seven Kingdoms, but we know who dominates the current television landscape. With “Breaking Bad” finished and “Mad Men” on its way out, this is “Game of Thrones’” time to shine, and it hasn’t disappointed yet.

Honors College students Playful poets make take stage with ‘Brighton’ for fun poetry fest
he crammed living room of Slonaker House is a far cry from a stage, but students of the UA Honors College are embracing that challenge this weekend with an amateur production of “Brighton Beach Memoirs.” The Neil Simon comedy is a play about a seven-member family forced to live under one roof in Depressionera America. Personalities clash and comedy ensues as the Jerome family squirms to find equilibrium in its working-class Brooklyn home. “Many of my plays [deal] with people being dumped together in a confined space,” Simon told the New York Times in 1983. “Brighton Beach Memoirs” made its Broadway debut that same year with Matthew Broderick, still a couple years from his “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” days, portraying the play’s protagonist, Eugene Jerome. Chloe Loos, a freshman honors student and director of the college’s upcoming production, said the student actors really understand both the seriousness and ridiculousness of Simon’s text. With rehearsals only beginning in early March, Loos said that the production had its share of predicaments trying to stage a twoact show in a furnished living room. Entrances and exits had to be reimagined, but students said that the natural wit of Simon’s writing was not sacrificed.
pril is National Poetry Month, which will be celebrated this weekend with a free lineup of poetry readings, workshops, bands, competitions and book signings. “Poetry at Play” is the theme for this year’s festival. The weekend-long annual Tucson Poetry Festival brings in six poets from out of town, each of whom will show how language can be played with and bridge the gap between poetry and music. The festival is one of the oldest poetry celebrations in the country, dating back to 1981. “The original idea was to bring in the best of the best poets and bring them in to Tucson,” said Matthew Conley, executive director of the Tucson Poetry Festival, “and then to get artists and community members together with a theme in mind. This year we came up with poets that are playful poets.” Contributing to this year’s theme will be nontraditional open-mic opportunities called “Verses/ Versus.” Other events include poetry spelling bees, Twinkieeating contests, rap battles, embarrassing story-offs and haiku death matches. This unique form of audience participation creates a challenge from choices drawn at random from a hat. From 7-8 p.m. on Friday, three poets will read, including the 2014

Kayenne Sirois (left), a biology freshman, and Kathryn Sinor (right), a science education freshman, perform during the dress rehearsal of “Brighton Beach Memoirs” by Neil Simon on Monday at Slonaker House. The play will be performed on Friday and Saturday nights.
The character is rumored to be a reflection of Simon himself, who also grew up in New York City. Simon started out as a radio and television writer, rubbing elbows with comedic geniuses like Mel Brooks and Woody Allen. The theater gave him his first commercial success with his play “Come Blow Your Horn” in 1960, which he co-wrote with his brother Danny. Since then, he has continued to imprint his wit on Broadway with successes like “Barefoot in the Park” and “The Odd Couple.” After the death of his first wife in 1973, critics noticed a variable
“I see a lot of my own family,” said Alexandra Totillo, an undeclared freshman. Totillo will play Kate Jerome, whom she describes as a stereotypical mother with a temperament for nagging and domesticity. As Eugene’s manically obsessed mother, Totillo said she drew a lot of quirks and traits from her own family experiences. A scene of confrontation concerning the Jerome’s Thanksgiving dinner is one of the great comedic climaxes of the play, Totillo added. “Brighton Beach Memoirs” is the first installment of a theatrical trilogy that chronicles the journey of Eugene from adolescence to adulthood.

One heck of a Hullabaloo
he streets of Tucson will be filled with hullabaloo this Saturday. The Tucson Hullabaloo is a weekend-long party that celebrates a lot more than music. The hullabaloo started with six friends in Flagstaff, Ariz., who wanted to throw a party the entire town could attend. Now their dream has become a reality in Tucson, too. Arizona Daily Sun readers from Northern Arizona voted the Flagstaff Hullabaloo the Best Annual Event or Festival for the past four years in a row.

GLASS ART TAKES FLIGHT Flame-glass artists pair up with Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium to demonstrate a butterfly’s life cycle through glass art DANIEL BURKART
ne of humanity’s earliest fascinations was with fire, and the allure it holds for us has yet to burn out. “Glass Sculpting Insects: The Life Cycle of the Butterfly” will be hosted by renowned flameworked glass artist Margaret Zinser on Saturday in the Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium. As part of the Flame-Working Glass Art Demonstrations series, Flandrau and the Sonoran Glass School have come together to offer an demonstration on how to create flame-worked glass insects. Bronwen Heilman, along with Zinser, both UA alumnae, will present this unique look into an exotic form of art. For most college students, their exploration into art doesn’t extend beyond the classroom. Heilman and Zinser said they wanted to show why the oldest version of hot glass work is worth learning about. “In Egyptian tombs, glass beads

KAMP talks dark electronica parisa eshrati
ig Black Delta’s selftitled album generated huge hype last year — he even had CMJ and Pitchfork noting him on their Artist to Watch lists. And publicity aside, you can tell that Jonathan Bates is an artist with a unique, innovative vision just from hearing his music yourself. The latest release is a musical odyssey that catapults you into space and keeps you floating through its experimental style incorporating dark, synthy electronica with danceable indiepop overtones. He’s currently on tour with Roman Remains and the legendary Gary Numan. During our interview we discussed his unique background in song writing and stage production, what he looks forward to on the tour and much more.
Masters of Bates
KAMP: Your live shows are known to be really aesthetically incredible and extravagant. I heard you actually build your own lights. Tell us a little bit about your technical background that allows you to carry out your unique vision. Bates: To be honest, I thought it would be easier to just do
it yourself and spend a week learning how the stuff works. Especially if you don’t have a budget, which most of us don’t. After my old band, I didn’t know if I wanted to play music again. But then I started creating again and recording, but I wasn’t going to play live. Then people started liking it and I thought, “Well, if I’m going to play live, how do I want this to look? How do I want it to feel?” So I just took it from there. It was about a week of studying light language and ultimately it was just about making things easier. Your own writing process seems really different in that you experience synthesthia. Would you say that your synthesthia guides your writing process, is it caused by your music or is it kind of a give-and-take experience?
It’s a give-and-take. It makes things easier, like if you gave me a painting and asked what it sounds like, that is easier for me than having a visual reference. So I do enjoy using lights and colors and bursts and shapes and even tastes that I get from certain sounds. Also, if I’m going to be playing these songs so many times in a year, I need them to physically match them or else I won’t feel it, and that would be obvious.

FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 2014 • PAGE 13 TWITTER.COM/WILDCATSPORTS
Home cooking for softball ROBERTO PAYNE Fresh off winning one of three at ASU, the No. 10 Arizona softball team will return home to face the No. 24 Stanford Cardinal (24-11, 4-2 Pac-12) for a three-game series starting Friday. Arizona (29-8, 4-5) has gone 9-7 over its last 16 games after starting the year with a dominating 20-1 record. The recent slump has seen offensive struggles against highly ranked teams and growing frustration. The Wildcats average 7.5 runs per game, but scored below that average in 11 of their last 16 games, with five of those games having one or fewer Arizona runs scored. However, members of the team feel like the offense is doing fine and that the team just isn’t getting clutch hits. Senior pitcher Estela Piñon, the team leader in wins, appearances and complete games, said the offense will come around. “We haven’t given up,” Piñon said. “It’s just having the key hit. … We’ve been hitting, we just haven’t produced any runs. I really believe in my team and know they’re working hard.” The Cardinal relies heavily on freshman pitcher Madi Schreyer, and for good reason. Schreyer is fourth in the Pac-12 in strikeouts with 119 and has already thrown 153.1 innings in 28 appearances. As good as Schreyer has been, the rest of the Stanford pitching staff has been pedestrian at best. Only one other player has more than six appearances all season. If Arizona is going to have a productive series offensively, getting Schreyer off the mound quickly could be the answer. That means the top of the batting order is key for success. Arizona head coach Mike Candrea recently changed up the top portion of the batting order by moving redshirt junior Chelsea Suitos from the No. 2 spot down to the No. 9 spot in the final game of the ASU series. The move resulted in the highest run total of the series.

FRESHMAN KATIYANA MAUGA doubles and drives in a run as the Wildcats beat the Oregon State Beavers 9-0 on March 22 at Hillenbrand Stadium. Arizona is 19-0 at home, with 16 mercy rule wins.
The three-game series against Stanford should provide a good chance for Arizona to get the bats back in action. Stanford allows 2.97 runs per game — which is sixth in the Pac-12 — and 1.3 runs per game more than Arizona allows . “Our team loves playing at home and

If you don’t want me to give you a dirty look and block you from switching lanes you shouldn’t have an ASU sticker on your car in Tucson —@VanillaV1ck7, B.J. Denker, former Arizona quarterback
After losing nine of its last 10 games, Arizona baseball will travel to Salt Lake City to face a Pac12 team that has yet to earn a conference win in nine tries. On Friday, the Wildcats (12-18, 2-7 Pac-12) will begin a three-contest series versus Utah (917, 0-9). The first pitch of all three games will be thrown at 11 a.m. at Smith’s Ballpark. The Utes find themselves at the very bottom of the Pac-12 standings. All three conference opponents so far for Utah, No. 7 Oregon State (22-6, 6-3), No. 9 Oregon (20-8, 6-3) and California (14-12, 3-3), broke out the brooms against it. Still, UA head coach Andy Lopez said he won’t be thinking about that. “I don’t really know anything about Utah,” Lopez said after Sunday’s 11-0 loss to Oregon State. “If you told me Utah was 44-0, you’d give me information.” Friday’s pitching matchup will feature a couple of right-handers. James Farris (4-2) will toe the rubber for Arizona, looking to get back on track after a couple of shaky starts. Utah will hand the ball to its ace, Mitch Watrous (1-4), who is the only hurler on the team to have started every game he’s appeared in (seven). Last season the Wildcats swept the Utes at Hi Corbett Field right at the end of March and outscored it 21-8. That weekend, two of the games were decided by one run, but in the Friday affair Arizona won convincingly in a 15-4 blowout. Even though in two of the games last weekend the UA was held to two runs or less, it still has a high team batting average of .303. Junior second baseman Trent Gilbert has

14 • WILDCAT WEEKEND
STAFF PICKS BY FERNANDO GALVAN The Daily Wildcat
Final Four: Florida vs. Connecticut
Connecticut has been on a great roll throughout the entire tournament, but this time it is taking on a different kind of opponent. Florida is the overall No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament and has looked unstoppable in every game it has played since the tournament began. Florida 78, Connecticut 75
Final Four: Kentucky vs. Wisconsin
Kentucky started the season with another bunch of All-American freshmen, and even though it hit some rough spots during the season, the young team has figured it out at the right time. Julius Randle and twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison are showing they are worthy of all the hype. Kentucky 71, Wisconsin 65
Arizona softball vs. Stanford
The Wildcats are looking to get back to their high-scoring ways and rebound after losing to in-state rivalsASU. Arizona faces a tough opponent in Stanford, but if it wants to have a chance at a Pac-12 title, it will need to win this series. Arizona 2 games, Stanford 1 BY ZOE WOLKOWITZ The Daily Wildcat
Final Four: Florida vs. Connecticut
The last time these two teams met, Connecticut’s Shabazz Napier’s buzzer-beating jumper gave UConn a 65-64 victory. The Huskies have perhaps the best backcourt in the entire country. Florida point guard Scottie Wilbekin has been phenomenal thus far, but Florida will have to take an all-around team effort defensively. UConn 68, Florida 59
Final Four: Kentucky vs. Wisconsin If Kentucky continues to shoot well from the 3, it has the win in the bag. The Harrison twins and James Young combined to shoot about 31 percent from 3-point range during the regular season, and 44.9 percent from deep in the NCAA tournament.

Arizona is returning home and is pumped to beat Stanford. Although Stanford is a tough competitor, the Wildcats were undefeated (19-0) at home. A conference win like this would help the Wildcats win the Pac-12 title. Arizona 2 games, Stanford 1
GAME DAY • FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 2014
Ryden leads UA to 28th NCAAs MATT WALL Sporting a bright pink collared shirt, Arizona women’s gymnastics head coach Bill Ryden is always an easy find at meets. He is constantly encouraging and getting the gymnasts motivated for every rotation, especially in the postseason for their upcoming meet. “The goal first and foremost is to qualify onto the finals,” Ryden said. “Then the secondary goal is for us to have a great competition and put on our best gymnastics and not leave any tenths on the floor.” Ryden has coached the Gymcats for the last 16 years. Over the last 28 years, the Gymcats have made the postseason every year. Experience is of no concern to Ryden. During his coaching tenure at Arizona, he has coached in 22 Pac-10/12 Conference Championship meets and 18 NCAA Championships. Ryden understands the pressures involved in being a gymnast. He competed both nationally and internationally for ASU from 1978 to 1983. During his senior season, he was ranked second in the nation on the horizontal bar. He said he understands that when one gymnast struggles, it can bring down an entire team. “The gymnasts put a lot of pressure on themselves to perform for the team, and when it doesn’t happen, they can definitely run into the case of being down,” Ryden said. “We let them know that everybody is still behind them and that they still have a job to do and pick up their role the next time they are out there.” The Gymcats may need to bring all of Ryden’s experience and the team’s determination into the Baton Rouge Regional as they face LSU, Stanford, Auburn, Kent State and Iowa State this Saturday. Ryden can use his experience to help the

Final Four: Florida vs. Connecticut
Final Four: Kentucky vs. Wisconsin
It’s hard to not side with Kentucky. However, Wisconsin’s stellar perimeter shooting can be as dangerous to defend as its star, Frank Kaminsky. The Badgers play tough defense as well, and that will help them move on. Wisconsin 61, Kentucky 55
Arizona softball vs. Stanford
Arizona is in a little funk, as it has lost five of its last 11. But the losses all came on the road. Hopefully returning to play at home will get it back on track. Arizona 3 games, Stanford 0
Gymcats stay focused in order to advance to the NCAA National Championships. “We have known that we would get to the postseason pretty early on, so we have been sort of working on them mentally and I think ... they have really stepped up,” Ryden said. “In the Pac-12 meet, going one at a time, television cameras in your face, it is going to be nerveracking. We have been going all year and putting them into situations so that they would be prepared for this time.”

Florida’s path to the Final Four has not been as tough as the Huskies’ run. UConn’s Shabazz Napier is playing out of his mind. Florida has not lost since Dec. 2, which was actually against UConn, but the Gators’ inexperience pulling out the victory late will ultimately favor the Huskies. UConn 65, Florida 59

Sand volleyball heads to Irvine lesson that isn’t a fun one to learn.” Walker said his squad did a poor job of exploiting each team’s weaknesses, and needs to focus on what it does best in the transition game. “We played into what they did well instead,” Walker said. “Passing and serving need to stay up to par the whole time as we definitely have the potential to win those matches … instead of the games being so close.” Despite being in the midst of a fourmatch skid, Walker still sees his squad improving week to week. Arizona struggled to adjust to an aggressive style of serving against Hawaii and USC in the Hawaii Tournament almost two weeks ago, but Walker has seen that problem dwindle since then. “We have done a much better job defending and covering the aggressive serving,” Walker said. “That is not really too much of a weakness for us anymore.”
Arizona sand volleyball looks to end its four-match losing streak as it heads to Irvine Valley College for two contests Friday. Its first match is against Long Beach State at 11 a.m., with another following immediately after against Irvine Valley College (3-4). Arizona (5-4) still does not get a break against top competition, though, as three of its past four games have been against ranked opponents. Long Beach State (4-4) captured the 2013 national title after defeating the two-time defending champions in Pepperdine. Irvine Valley College won the Intercollegiate Sand Volleyball Conference State Championship last year, and finished second in the first year of the championship in 2012. Arizona could not close out the final game of the three-set match of dual play in both losses against Grand Canyon University and Nebraska last Friday. However, UA head coach Steve Walker said he saw the close losses as a learning process for his players.

“For the most part we outdid ourselves in a position to win the dual,” Walker said. “We just didn’t assert ourselves and put the teams away. It’s a

started all of Arizona’s 30 games and leads the team in average (.392), hits (47), doubles (12), triples (seven), total bases (79) and slugging percentage (.658). With 28 runs batted in, Gilbert is tied for first on the squad with his double play partner, Kevin Newman. Newman said he isn’t looking over the Utes either. “All the teams in the Pac-12 are pretty good,” Newman said. “Hopefully we’ll be ready for Utah and win that series, but we’re not sleeping on anyone right now.”
