STRANGE HUMOR NEWS OF THE WEIRD
on an ear) because instruments were left in bowls and a surgical glove and medication wrappings tossed into a trash can (and a gown left on a table). (2) A 35-year-old man was detained by police in Vancouver, British Columbia, in October after a home break-in in which the intruder took off his clothes, grabbed some eggs and began preparing a meal. The homeowner, elsewhere in the house, noticed the commotion and the intruder fled (still naked). [WEWS-TV (Cleveland), 10-27-2016] [CTV News (Vancouver), 10-20-2016]
BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
HOW TO TELL IF YOU'VE HAD TOO MUCH TO DRINK Ashley Basich, 49, was arrested in Cheyenne, Wyoming, in October and charged with DUI after police found her, late at night, using an industrial forklift to pick up and move a van that she explained was blocking her driveway. Problems: She works for the state forestry department and had commandeered a stateowned vehicle, she had a cooler of beer in the forklift and was operating it while wearing flipflops (OSHA violation!), and the van "blocking" her driveway was her own. [Wyoming Tribune Eagle (Cheyenne), 11-2-2016]
Two men in rural Coffee County, Georgia, told sheriff's deputies in November that they had planned to soon attack a science-research center in Alaska because peoples' "souls" were trapped there and needed to be released (or at least that is what God told Michael Mancil, 30, and James Dryden Jr., 22, causing them to amass a small, but "something out of a movie" arsenal, according to the sheriff). The High Frequency Active Aural Research Facility, run by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, has long been a target of conspiracists, in that "the study of the Earth's atmosphere" obviously, they say, facilitates "mind control," snatching souls. [WALB-TV (Albany,
WELL, OF COURSE! (1) Motorist Luke Campbell, 28, was arrested near Minneapolis in September and charged with firing his gun at several passing cars, wounding one man (a bus passenger) -- explaining to a bystander that shooting at other vehicles "relieves stress." (2) Briton Mark Wright, 45, caught with illegal drugs taped to his penis following his arrest for burglary, told Newcastle Crown Court in September that he had "hidden" them there to keep them secret from his wife (perhaps identifying one place that she no longer visits). [Star Tribune (Minneapolis), 9-23-2016] [The Chronicle (Newcastle), 9-28-2016]
PEOPLE WITH ISSUES A 49-year-old man was partly exonerated by a court in southern Sweden in September when he convinced the judge that he had a severe anxiety attack every time he received an "official" government letter in the mail (known as "window envelopes" in Sweden). Thus, though he was guilty of DUI and several other minor traffic offenses while operating his scooter, the judge dropped the charge of driving without a license because the man never opened the string of "frightening" letters informing him that operating a scooter requires a license. [The Local (Stockholm), 9-3-2016]
LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS Jacob Roemer, 20, was arrested in Negaunee Township, Michigan, after a brief chase on Oct. 29 following an attempted home invasion. The resident had confronted him, chasing Roemer into the woods, where a State Police dog eventually found him lying on the ground unconscious and bloody, after, in the darkness, running into a tree and knocking himself out. [Marquette Mining Journal, 10-30-2016]
POLICE REPORT Inexplicable: (1) The police chief of Bath Township, Ohio, acknowledged the overnight break-in on Oct. 10 or 11 at the University Hospitals Ghent Family Practice, but said nothing was missing. It appeared that an intruder (or intruders) had performed some medical procedure in a clinical office (probably

PENDERECKI AT THE ALBRIGHT KNOX The Buffalo Chamber Players honor Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki
he Buffalo Chamber Players continue to celebrate their 10th anniversary season in high style. On Thursday December 1 at 7:30 pm the BCP will devote their entire program to the chamber music of Krzysztof Penderecki, the greatest living Polish composer, who will himself be present for the occasion, on his historic first trip ever to Buffalo. BPO music director JoAnn Falletta met Penderecki last year, when she was invited to conduct a concert in Poland that featured a performance of one of the composer’s works. On meeting Penderecki, Falletta took advantage of the opportunity to invite him to Buffalo to conduct the BPO in a program centered on one of his works. The BPO will premiere Penderecki’s Concerto for Violin and Cello on the weekend following the BCP’s event, which will be the subject of my column in next week’s edition of Artvoice. When Penderecki also asked JoAnn Falletta about the possibility of setting up a performance of some of his recent chamber music, which has been woefully underperformed in America, she immediately suggested contacting Janz Castelo, a member of the BPO viola section, and the founder and artistic director of the Buffalo Chamber Players. Born in 1933, Krzysztof Penderecki has enjoyed a prolific international career as both a composer and conductor. His Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima (1960) was recognized with the UNESCO prize. He has been awarded the Order of the White Eagle, Poland’s highest honor, as well as recognitions from the governments of Latvia, Luxembourg, and Armenia. His music has been featured in most of the world’s great concert halls, and also featured in films such as “The Shining”, “The Exorcist”, and “Shutter Island”. While Penderecki has gained an enviable wide international reputation based on his large scale, often incendiary orchestral pieces, and his sometimes controversial, but always thought provoking choral, and 4 4

especially operatic works, his large catalogue of instrumental and chamber works have generally been largely overlooked, particularly in this country. Case in point: the Buffalo Chamber Music Society, the second oldest such society in the entire country, has logged a very impressive concert program play list, but in its 92 year history it has never programmed a work by Penderecki. Similarly, the composer’s works have made only very rare appearances at the University at Buffalo’s prestigious June in Buffalo festivals, devoted to contemporary music.
sense of history. I am certain our audience will cherish the opportunity to experience these works with the composer in attendance.” “Penderecki is a composer who is very much committed to what has come before”, says Castelo. “The nature of his compositions reminds me very much of a park, as opposed to a forest, since unlike in the works of many other contemporary composers, you can clearly see his intentions from the beginnings to the end. Penderecki is always very concerned with what came before, but always with a sense of looking
Buffalo Chamber Players
For the evening’s concert, Penderecki requested the works to be performed: Cadenza for solo viola (1984), Quartet for clarinet and string trio (1993), and Sextet for clarinet, horn, violin, viola, cello, and piano (2000). Artistic Director Janz Castelo says, “The musicians and I are honored to welcome Maestro Penderecki to Buffalo. His music is powerful and profound, with strong
forward. His compositions display the sense of being part of the classical canon, and I think that they will remain relevant for the next fifty, or even the next 150 years. I think that Penderecki’s music puts him in the same class as the giants of 20th century music such as Bartok and Stravinsky – he is the real deal. There is a wonderful symmetry in his music, and no superfluous showmanship, and it displays an all too rare
genuine sense of gravitas”. A reception with the musicians and the composer will follow the performance. Tickets: $20 ($15 for AK members); Students: $5. Information: www.buffalochamberplayers.org YUKI NUMATA RESNICK Album Release Party at Pausa
ometimes it’s challenging to be a classical music lover in Buffalo, due to having to choose on those occasions when two ‘do-not-miss’ events conflict. On Thursday December 1 at 7pm, Pausa Art House will host a CD release party for Yuki Numata Resnick, who has been described by the New York Times as a player of “virtuosic flair and dexterous bravery,” On her new disc “For Ko” Yuki interweaves the movements of J.S. Bach’s Partita No.1 in B minor with newly commissioned responses from composers Caleb Burhans, Clara Iannotta, Matt Marks, and Andrew Greenwald.
Collaboration and the creation of community are guiding values for Yuki, as exemplified with her non-profit organization Buffalo String Works (BSW). Yuki is a founder and co-director of BSW which provides music lessons for children of refugee and immigrant families on the lower West Side of Buffalo. BSW is also a training ground for the college-age teachers and future artistic leaders who work with its young participants. Tickets: $7/5 students. www.pausaarthouse. com
BOOKS | GRAPHIC TRAFFIC
HAVE A GRAPHIC NOVEL FAN IN YOUR FAMILY? Queen City Books offers a few gift suggesstions.
PAPER GIRLS, VOLUME 1 “The titular Paper Girls are a delightful bunch of teenage misfits, a girl gang who bond over being the only girls in their neighborhood to deliver the morning papers.”
BITCH PLANET, VOLUME 1: EXTRAORDINARY MACHINE “Her presence, and the presence of other women of excellence in this text, shows us that punishment for “noncompliance” – as defined by patriarchy – is keeping women from full ownership of their limitless potential.”
RICK AND MORTY: VOLUME ONE “This collection includes the first five issues of the comic book series; after reading, you will be left wanting more. A special bonus section continues the hilarity, showcasing the entire family.”
REBELS: A WELLREGULATED MILITIA “Their battles are not for life or liberty. Instead, they fight in the pursuit of happiness, as these rebels want their own opinions to be known, and respected.”
THIS ONE SUMMER “Not since Craig Thompson’s Blankets has there been a better graphic novel of human emotion. Added to Mariko’s narrative, this one is hard to put down, one I’m sure you’ll cherish for years.”
THE VISION VOL.1: LITTLE WORSE THAN A MAN “If you are looking for an odd, atmospheric science fiction story along the lines of the best the Rod Sterling ever had to offer, or an offbeat, wholly unique super hero story, Vision is a book that will not disappoint.”

The top choices for 2016 gift-giving for Buffalonians near and far are likely to be two books that have recently been released: The Electrifying Fall of Rainbow City, Margaret Creighton (Norton), a terrific history of the 1901 Pan-Am Exposition, a new look at the moment often-regarded as the apex of Buffalo’s history, as well as the harbinger of its decline; and Right Here, Right Now, edited by Jody Biehl (Belt Publishing), a collection of essays about Buffalo now, written by current and former Buffalonians (full disclosure—I am a contributor, and Talking Leaves is co-hosting a publication release party with the publisher at the Market Arcade from 4-6 on Saturday, December 10th). Both books have much to say about the city, past and present. Bruce Jackson’s evocative and memorable collection of photographs of the grain elevators along the Buffalo waterfront, American Chartres (SUNY Press), will make it into a lot of area homes as well. 2016 has been a good year for fiction—both John Wray and Lauren Belfer (Buffalo-raised authors) released well-received novels in the spring (The Lost Time Accidents (FSG)and And After the Fire (Harper); both dealing in their own unique way with traveling through time. Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad (Random House) conceptualizes the Underground Railroad as a literal underground track, with conductors and engineers, as he chronicles a young female slave’s bid for freedom, and in doing so meditates on our nation’s history of slavery and bondage. Zadie Smith returns with Swing Time (Penguin Press) a tale of the linked lives of
two brown girls who meet in dance class and their diverging searches for identity and meaning in their lives. Jonathan Safran Foer released Here I Am (FSG), a book about a collapsing marriage and a catastrophic earthquake in the Middle East, about the claims of history, family, identity in a broken world. In Everybody’s Fool (Random House) Richard Russo revisits the site and characters of his acclaimed Nobody’s Fool, three decades later, older maybe wiser, maybe not. Anyone who somehow overlooked the work of speculative fiction master Ursula LeGuin over the past half century has the chance to have that oversight rectified with a choice of new books: a Library of America publication of the Complete Orsinia, or two collections from Saga Press, Found and Lost: Novellas, and The Unreal and the Real: Selected Short Fiction. Here’s five important non-fiction books that should make their way under more than a few trees this holiday season: White Trash (Viking), Nancy Isenberg, the first sustained look at class in the US in a very long time; Blood in the Water (Pantheon), Heather Thompson, a highly acclaimed look into the 1971 Attica Prison Rebellion and its aftermath; The Fire This Time (Scribner), an anthology of writings about race in America that responds to and updates James Baldwin’s The Fire This Time, 50 years
Suggestions from our friends at
books that you can gift TALKING LEAVES BOOKSTORE later and in the wake of Trayvon Martin, Ferguson, and the like; Writing to Save a Life (Scribner), novelist John Edgar Wideman’s dissection of the Emmett Till case through a look at Till’s father and Wideman’s own history; and Alan Taylor, American Revolutions : A Continental History 17501804, a magisterial history of the nation’s founding. And two books with local connections: Thomas Grace’s Kent State, a new look at that famous incident and its aftermath by one of the students wounded by National Guard that day, a Buffalo native, and Almighty (Blue Rider), Buffalo born journalist Dan Zak’s investigation of a group of peace activists’ break-in, with bolt cutters and hammers, into the supposedly most secure nuclear facility in the US, and from that, into the state of the country’s nuclear defense industry and security. Readers of poetry might find Collected Poems volumes from Adrienne Rich or Rita Dove (both Norton), or new collections by local poets Ansie Baird, Solace of Islands (Blaze Vox), or Susan Nusbaum, Open Wide, The Eye (Coffeetown Press), or nationally acclaimed poets Mary Oliver, Upstream (Penguin Press), or Billy Collins, Rain in Portugal (Random House). UB English Professor Cristanne Miller’s new edition of the poems of Emily Dickinson,
Emily Dickinson’s Poems as She Preserved Them (Harvard U Press), will also weigh down more than a few stockings. As usual, there’s a wonderful new crop of books for children. Highlights include A Celebration of Beatrix Potter (Frederick Warne), tribute by 30 contemporary children’s authors and illustrators to their literary forbear and her rabbits, and A Child of Books (Candlewick), Oliver Jeffers and Sam Winston’s stunning prose poem on the rewards of reading and sharing stories. Buffalo’s Janet McNally will release her debut young adult novel, Girls in the Moon (Harper), next week—a Buffalo teen’s search for truth and her own voice in a family of complicated and contentious storytellers and story evaders. You’ll find these and plenty more to give and receive, to read and to hear, as you explore the iceberg these books are just a sampling of the tip of, at independent bookstores across the country and in your hometown. Shop local to infuse much-needed capital into our local economy—thus giving the gift of books to your friends and family, and of increasing economic stability to your hometown.

MIDSUMMER DYKE’S BRAZEN-FACED VARLETS HITS 10 by ANTHONY CHASE National Gay Theater Festival, which was in Columbus, Ohio that year. This was 2005. They did Matthew Crehan Higgins’ Confessions. I was very impressed with their work. Not only was the acting excellent, it was a new work. We realized that a theater community that could support new work was a very strong theater community.” “I was familiar with Buffalo, because I had done my undergraduate degree at UB,” says Haberberger. “I knew Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Ed Smith. Joyce Stilson had been one of my teachers. I had assistant staged managed the All My Sons that Manny Fried was in. I had seen the Godot with Saul Elkin, and Jerry Finnegan, and Chris O’Neill. Also, I am originally from Rochester, so it was closer to my family, without being too close. Buffalo seemed ideal! And so we made the move.”

“We were working in the Washington, D.C. area,” she recalls. “I had done my M.F.A. in directing at Catholic University in D.C., but it was very expensive for a fledgling theater company there. It took a lot of money to rent a space, and because most everything in D.C. is Equity, you had to rehearse during the day. [Actor] Heather [Fangsrud] and I had been talking about relocating when we met the guys from Buffalo United Artists Artists at the

because they were being cast all the time,” says Haberberger. “There were far fewer roles for women, and therefore far fewer opportunities to grow. We wanted to start a company that would focus on the talents and concerns of women. I think we have done that.” Still, performing in a venue that can only seat 20 has been a mixed blessing, and the move to Grant Street has been a challenge. “Obviously, the intimacy is a plus,” says Haberberger, “but the audience gets claustrophobic if we go for more than an hour. Also, when a sold out house means only twenty people, we have not been well positioned for audience development.” With A Midsummer Dyke’s Dream, a playful parody of Shakespeare with a lesbian spin, the company returns to its strengths. “We are happy to be working with BUA,” enthuses Haberberger. “Going forward, we hope to focus more on developing the audience and continuing to focus on women’s issues. But we’re not going anywhere!” A Midsummer Dyke’s Dream continues through Dec. 10th at the Main Street Cabaret in the Alleyway Theatre complex, 672 Main St., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Call 716-886-9239.

JOHN: Justice “Woman" One of France's most popular electronic duo's, Gaspard Augé and Xavier De Rosnay have come together again to oﬀer an audible delicacy you've only dreamed of. The duo's third studio album eﬀort is reminiscent of previous eﬀorts "Cross" (2007) and "Audio Video Disco (2011).

In fact, all of these drinks can be brewed or prepared ahead of time, and reheated for guests as they come and go.

etting a head start on planning your holiday festivities? When you’re making your shopping list, don’t forget to think about what beverages you want to serve your guests this holiday season. At this time of year, when friends and family come by for parties, stop by to drop off holiday gifts or their favorite cookies, be sure to have something to serve them that will warm their hands and their hearts. For guests coming in from the cold, perhaps the nicest treat would be a delicious mug of mulled cider. Start with fresh cider from your favorite mill, temperately heated in a saucepan with a dash of nutmeg and cloves. Some chefs like to add a pinch of allspice, some zest of lemon or orange, or even a bit of brown sugar if the cider needs sweetening. But the best thing about mulled cider and many of the best holiday drinks is that they can be served with or without alcohol, depending on your plans for an evening. Rum is often the top choice for a mug of mulled cider. It goes so well with the taste of fresh apple. If warming your spirits with a touch of bourbon or brandy is what you have in mind, then the Hot Toddy is the only way to go. A Hot Toddy is always made with liquor and water with sugar and spices. Not unlike the mulled cider, the recipe is really dependent on the tastes of the bartender, although I believe the original “Hot Toddy” was a drink made with scotch on British Navy ships in an

earlier century. For serving guests this holiday season, consider a hot brewed tea toddy with a shot of brandy, some squeezed fresh lemon or cranberry juice and sweetened to taste along with a hint of your favorite spices. For those of you who like to bring along a hot drink while you’re out on the slopes, a thermos of classic hot chocolate is always a fun treat in between hills. You can always give a cup of hot chocolate a fun seasonal twist. But first, be sure to use the finest of ingredients. A true hot cocoa should not be made with water. Combine about 1/3 a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder with about . cup of sugar to get the right element of sweetness in your cocoa. You can, of course, cheat--get yourself some Nestle’s or Hershey’s cocoa powder. But be sure to heat the powder with a combination of milk and heavy cream. Then add a flavor to the saucepan to give it your own special touch. Consider almond extract or peppermint. The point is not just to take the chill out of your bones, but to please the palate as well. And last but certainly not least, there is the ‘nog.’ This can be served warm or chilled, and it’s still the most popular holiday drink for sharing with family and friends, although concerns about serving drinks made with raw eggs is dampening its popularity of late. Egg substitutes are available on the market. Depending on how many you are serving, the correct measurement is generally one part milk to four parts heavy cream. Blend in about six eggs for a

BY JOE GEORGE
In comparison to other meats turkey is relatively low in saturated fat, and much of the fat is located in or just below the skin. The beauty of roasting a bird is that a great deal of the fat is rendered off during the cooking process. A threeounce portion of breast meat has a mere 160 calories. (But then, when’s the last time anyone ate three ounces of anything on Thanksgiving?) Turkey is also an excellent source of protein and niacin and is an easily digested meat, which makes it an ideal choice of protein for children and the elderly. Turkey also contains L-tryptophan, a natural sedative. Turkey’s distinctive yet gentle flavor lends itself to any dish that calls for a mild-flavored meat, such as chicken, pork, or veal.
Well, here it is November already— can you believe it?—and being a food writer I feel compelled to offer the obligatory turkey article. And as I do, a quote comes to mind. Some years ago I attended a seminar at the New School in New York City. One of the speakers was Nach Waxman, owner of the literary cookbook store, Kitchen Arts and Letters. When he sat down he gave the room a long, sweeping look and then said, “We do not live in a recipe-deprived society.” He paused, and then repeated himself, insinuating that there are too many recipes for the same thing and that food writing needn’t be boring nor merely a compilation of recipes. With that thought in mind I shan’t offer any recipes on roasting the bird or how to make stuffing. You need only look at any newspaper or magazine for the “best” or “easiest” way to roast your bird. Instead, I’ll include a few recipes on what to do with leftovers, because in this eater’s opinion leftovers are as good as the initial serving. One of the most underused leftovers is also the most fundamental: the bird’s stripped and picked-over carcass. While not the most attractive item, it’s just crying out to be used. And the easiest way to do this is to put it in a
pot (along with any scraps of meat and a few vegetables), cover it with water, and cook it. The resulting broth will be delicious and suitable for any recipe calling for chicken broth. As I type these words I ponder a question: Why wait until Thanksgiving to eat turkey? This is a query I pose mostly to myself. Americans eat chicken often yet generally consume turkey only a few times a year. One would assume that ingrained cultural habits are at play. While the Thanksgiving feast began centuries ago as a New England tradition and eventually spread through the rest of the country, it wasn’t until 1863 that Abraham Lincoln named it a national holiday. But long before any explorer ever set foot on the Americas, the Aztecs were braising wild turkey with spices, chilies, and chocolate—a dish that would not be unlike a present-day molé. The origin of the name turkey is interesting. Some say early colonists thought that the turkey was from (where else?) Turkey. A more common theory is that the turkey got its name through the confusion of Columbus, who thought that the “New World” was somehow related to India, and that the name for the bird was tuka, the Tamil word for peacock, which is what turkeys were initially thought to be. In France turkey
I realize that I previously stated I wouldn’t offer recipes for cooking your bird, but I can’t help myself. Here are a few basic suggestions. The most common state turkey is purchased is frozen, thus, before cooking a bird make sure it is completely thawed to insure even heat transfer. The USDA approves three methods by which to thaw turkeys: in a refrigerator, in cold water, and in a microwave. I feel the best method is to plan ahead and thaw it for a few days in a refrigerator; the water method requires numerous refreshments and microwaves scare me. If you purchase a fresh turkey, you needn’t concern yourself with any of this. When roasting your bird, preheat an oven to at least 325F, and roast it until a probe thermometer reads a minimum of 170 degrees when inserted into the thickest part of the inner thigh. It’s also recommended that you prepare your stuffing in a pan separately to avoid the risk of bacteria. This, of course, would make it a dressing, as it wouldn’t be stuffing anything. If you do decide to stuff the bird, do so directly before roasting it, and cook it until the stuffing also reaches 170 degrees Fahrenheit.

ALL THOSE SABRES PROSPECTS “Sabres University”
is on display
right here and right now
BY ANDREW KULYK AND PETER FARRELL Here’s the list:
then a high point over a Key Bank Center. Last Thursday the Tampa Bay Lightning came to town, and the Sabres turned out one of their most sorry and listless performances all season, losing 4-1. The crowd was humbled and quieted early on, and by the time the final buzzer sounded the arena seating bowl
shots and all three shootout attempts, against the formidable tandem of Sidney Crosby, Evgeny Malkin and Kris Letang. A beaming Dan Bylsma, who notched his first Sabres win against the team he used to coach and once led to a Stanley Cup, could barely contain his glee on the outcome that his team so desperately needed to have. “It doesn’t really matter at this point who it’s against, but against one of the better teams if not the best in the league. We finally figured out a shootout and won the shootout. Cal O’Reilly’s dramatic shootout goal
Nicholas Baptiste, Hudson Fasching, Casey Nelson, Linus Ullmark, Justin Bailey, William Carrier, Justin Falk, Cole Schneider, Evan Rodrigues, Taylor Fedun, Cal O’Reilly. This is the roster of Sabres prospects who have seen time in a Buffalo uniform this season, which is barely six weeks old, thanks to horrific spate of injuries which the team has had to endure so far. Some have had several callups and subsequent returns to Rochester, as Coach Dan Bylsma desperately tries to plug holes and tweak his roster while keeping the skids from completely falling off. It hasn’t been easy – the Sabres lost Jack Eichel before the first puck was even dropped to begin the season. Evander Kane has lost time and hasn’t been himself since returning. Ryan O’Reilly is slotted to be one of the leading scorers on the team and he is on the shelf. Tyler Ennis has a groin injury. Defensemen Dmitry Kulikov and Zach Bogosian are sidelined.
all the injuries and prospects such as Justin Bailey and Evan Rodrigues looking so disappointing, Fedun is here in Buffalo, and has been impressive. “It was all a bit of a whirlwind getting the callup, but I had a good chance to get focused and get ready. It was pretty exciting, since I never had a chance to play in any of the exhibition games, so just throwing on the jersey and getting out there was great.” Fedun sees a lot of promise within the organization. “They’re cultivating a great culture down in Rochester, and fans need to be patient, because that is going to translate to big things down the road,” said Fedun. At this point Fedun isn’t looking too far ahead as to his stay in Buffalo. “It’s day to day with all the injuries they’ve had, we’ll have to see what happens.” Back in the day, former coach Lindy Ruff’s stock line when a player succumbed to injury was “This creates an opportunity for someone else to step up”. Many of the minor league players have not seized that opportunity. But perhaps players like Fedun, O’Reilly and WNY’er Cole Schnieder might be the ones to help this team out of their current down cycle. TARO SEZ..
And the regulars who remain simply haven’t stepped up. Forwards such as Zemgus Girgensens and Sam Reinhart have dished up performances that are almost Leinoesque. It has all translated into a six game losing streak, which was finally snapped last Saturday. During that streak the team managed to get only two points, and at one time was dead last in the Eastern Conference. And while the team is still within striking distance of a playoff slot even while standings watching at this early point, right now things are looking bleak. This past week saw a low point and
was pretty much empty. Two nights later, the Stanley Cup champions Pittsburgh Penguins came to town, accompanied by several thousand of their full throated fans who made the weekend trip to our city. In a game that Buffalo desperately needed to have just to stem the bleeding and inspire some renewed confidence on the team, the Sabres came up big. It was William Carrier getting his first NHL goal. It was Taylor Fedun earning second star honors. It was Cal O’Reilly, Ryan’s brother, netting the lone shootout goal. It was goaltender Anders Nilsson stopping 46 of 47
came from the unlikeliest of directions. O’Reilly had just been promoted to Buffalo earlier that day. “We put people in situations where they are most likely to be successful,” said Bylsma. He had a hunch that O’Reilly would be the guy to put one past goaltender Marc Andre Fleury, after the first two misfired. Said O’Reilly, “I didn’t know I’d be up to take the shot until I was tapped on the shoulder and sent out there.” Taylor Fedun’s promotion to Buffalo was unexpected. The Ukrainian-Canadian who hails from Edmonton came to the Sabres via free agency this past summer, and was not slotted for any time with the big club this season. But with
Over a year ago came the big announcement that the IIHF World Juniors are coming to Buffalo in 2017-2018. This came on the heels of the city obtaining new funding to continue reconstruction of Main Street with cars returning to lower Main Street. A year has passed and there has been no movement on design, announcement of contractor or beginning of work. Nothing will make worse optics, in person and on television, than forcing our visitors from around the world to climb through barriers and mud pits and construction sites as they make their way to the arena next winter. More fail by the public agencies overseeing the rebirth and bailout of Canalside. Should we really be surprised? artvoice.com | nov 24 nov 30

Do It Do It Yourself
try these homeade gift Ideas wand save cash
Try these easy, homemade gift ideas and save some cash. BY KATHERINE O’DAY
Wrap It Right
here are people whose homemade, or DIY (Do-It-Yourself), gifts are their Christmastime trademarks. One friend gives a small bottle of homemade vanilla—a whole vanilla bean marinated in vodka—tied with a ribbon and small card. Another woman I know gives a brown paper bag, similarly tied, filled with roasted chestnuts. There’s a man who makes his own Scottish malted ale, a heady, intoxicating brew with an alarmingly high proof. One bottle can get you pretty drunk, and that’s exactly what he gives, with a personalized or holiday themed label in place of a card (think Molson Canadian labels, but not so stupid). Such gifts are perfect because they are completely impersonal, in that they can be given to almost anyone, while also being extremely personal because they are homemade.
A Do-It-Yourself Surprise… Ready-Made Magazine (available at the Lexington Co-op, or by subscription at www. readymademag.com) is a great DIY guide. City-wise and eco-friendly, it provides unusual, resourceful ideas that are certainly do-able, as well as being off the beaten path. Here’s an idea for how to give money that came from there, and though I don’t quite understand it, it sounds cool: Put some cash (or a diamond ring, if the occasion warrants) into a plastic ziplock bag. Mix up some Durham’s water putty according to instructions on the package, and pour into a square baking dish or seasonally shaped mold, if you have one. Fill mold halfway, toss in the money or trinket, and cover with more putty. When it dries, it will be a square (or tree-shaped) cement block. The cement wrap can be easily cracked open, and no one will suspect what treasure lies within.

Speaking of wrap, why not coordinate it with the present’s theme? It’s obvious when someone is about to open a CD, or a book. Work with that, and wrap CDs in sheet music, books in newspaper. Or Xerox a scrabble board to use as wrapping paper—you can even plot out a tiled message by way of a card. When shipping packages, use a map as wrap, and chart the present’s course from your home to theirs. If you want your gifts “pretty” rather than “witty,” there are various treatments that can be given to on-hand materials that produce beautiful, professional looking results. Tie-dyed tissue paper (green, red & white, for instance) is an example of a simple technique that can look like it came from a specialty boutique. Plain brown paper looks as glamorous as any wrapping when decorated au naturel with raffia (available at Hyatt’s (910 Main St.) or any craft supply store), dried berries and leaves. Hint: cinnamon candies glued to raffia look a lot like hollyberries.
Festive Foods The ever-popular “Gifts From the Kitchen” are always in order this time of year. Making chocolate is a snap with DIY chocolate-making kits available through most candy manufacturers. The local supplier Make ’n Mold (www. makenmold.com)sells equipment that includes everything you’ll need, like colored chocolate wafers, dipping trays and eleborately shaped molds. You can even make a “Christmas Tree” out of homemade chocolate bonbons, like Make ’n Mold’s “Tree Full of Candy,” which looks like something out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. To really do it from scratch, make the classic french croquembouche (loose translation: “crunch in the mouth”). This cone-shaped pastry, made from caramelized cream puffs and served at weddings, takes the form of a chocolate “Truffle Tree” at Christmastime. For those with a tried and true sense of humor, gag gifts can also be handmade. Scan and enlarge photos or catchphrases for Tshirts, throw pillows and even mouse pads, using an iron-on transfer kit (also available at Hyatt’s for about $10). No scanner? Hate the office supply store? Don’t even want to leave the house? You can always Google somebody, and depict the results in a humorous comic strip. You
never know who might share a name with a Christian rock idol, Nobel prize winner, or porn star. Vodka Vanilla: 1/2 pint plain vodka Vanilla bean (or two, depending on length) Decorative bottle Cut a lengthwise slit down the middle of each vanilla bean. Cut bean to fit into your bottle or container. Pour vodka into your container. Add vanilla beans. Once each day, for 30 days, vigorously shake the container for 30 seconds. Strain liquid through a coffee filter or fine sieve and return to bottle, along with a tell-tale vanilla bean. (Find whole beans at Lexington Co-op or Wegman’s.) Chocolate Truffle Tree: 2 cups heavy cream 1 tsp. vanilla extract, brandy or liquer 2 lbs. bittersweet chocolate, chopped 4 oz. unsalted butter, softened Cocoa, finely chopped nuts, assorted sprinkles, flaked coconut 1—9-inch tall foam cone box wooden toothpicks candied flowers or leaves (try Watson’s Candies or Fowler’s Chocolates). Bring cream to a boil in a heavy saucepan. Remove from heat; add vanilla and chocolate. Stir until chocolate has completely melted. Allow mixture to cool to warm. Add butter and vanilla and stir until mixture is smooth and glossy. Pour into shallow dish. Cover and refrigerate until just firm, about one hour. Shape half mixture into 1-1/4 inch balls. Shape remaining mixture into 3/4-inch balls. Roll balls into nuts, colored sprinkles, or sweeted coconut (to resemble a snowball). Refrigerate truffles until firm, about one hour. Cover cone with foil. Starting at the bottom, attach larger truffles with wooden toothpicks. Insert the toothpick at an angle, then press truffle onto the end of the toothpick. Use smaller truffles toward the top of cone. If necessary, add candied flowers or rose leaves to fill any spaces. Refrigerate until serving time.
Basic Bath Oil Blend: 1 1/2 oz. olive oil 3 oz. almond oil 1 oz. sesame oil 1 oz. canola oil 1/2 oz. wheat germ oil Any essential oil, 25 drops or so. Rosemary sprigs Rose petals (at Buffalo Wholesale Florist, Trillium or Glaser’s). Pour oils in a jar, cap with a tight-fitting lid and shake well. Insert one or two rosemary sprigs and some rose petals, re-cap, and tie with a ribbon or bow. Wine Glass Charms: Earring wire Distinctive center bead (an easily identifiable shape or color, as these are meant to be ID tags for the wine glass) Four to six smaller beads—either of different colors in one shape (like a fish, or a butterfly), or six beads of varying shapes in one color. (Materials available at Bead Creative, 5401 Sheridan Dr. or The Strand, 818 Elmwood). Thread beads on wire, make a small hook with pliers at the end of the wire and attach to loop in earring wire. Make a set of at least six charms. Tie-Dye Tissue Paper: Tissue paper Eyedroppers Pack of food coloring Cookie sheet Place to hang wet tissue Cover your work surface with newspapers. Set a folded piece of tissue paper on a cookie sheet. “Paint” the paper by dripping streaks of food coloring from eyedroppers, using a new dropper for each shade. Hang the paper to dry, clothesline-style.
