Kelly, Don, Tony and Bob


MUST ADMIT IT. I OWN A KELLY Clarkson album. It was in the used bin at CD Exchange in Northfield several years back â&#x20AC;&#x201D; her sophomore effort, Breakaway that is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and I picked it up because I had heard the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since U Been Goneâ&#x20AC;? on the radio and could dig the passion in this young Idol winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice. I wanted to hear the rest of the album.

Think Tom Waits doing Bing Crosby doing Blind Willie Johnson. I still have the CD and although I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t popped it in the old player in a long while, I remember that I listened to it many times after buying it and, well, Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still OK in my book. Clarkson, who turned down an interview request for Atlantic City Weekly (who does she think she is, Madonna?), returns to Atlantic City this weekend at the Taj and our resident American Idol fanatic Lori Hoffman writes in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cover story that (P. 50) Clarksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth album, All I Ever Wanted, is a return to Clarksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;pop and dance song roots.â&#x20AC;? Maybe she does think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Madonna after all. Over at the Borgata, Don Rickles returns to Atlantic City for the umpteenth time and Michael Pritchard interviews the comic legend in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feature on p. 46. Also inside, David Spatz interviews Tony Danza (p. 11), Frank Gabriel writes about the abundance of fantastic farmers markets in our area and the plentiful goods they have to offer at this

time of the year (p. 36), and AC Weekly contributor Stef Gordon gives a closetful of tips regarding whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in vogue this fashion season in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fall Fashion Guideâ&#x20AC;? (starting on p. 24). Finally, a few sneak peeks. I was lucky enough to hear a couple albums that are due for release next Tuesday, Oct. 13 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Flaming Lipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; psychedelic new release Embryonic and Bob Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn as Nat King Cole with the singer-songwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first ever holiday album, Christmas in the Heart. As far as the latter goes, everyone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Dylan fan or not â&#x20AC;&#x201D; should pick this one up as all of the proceeds from its sales will be donated to the charity Feeding America. The album is pretty fun, too. A nice and strange collection for Christmastime this year. Think Tom Waits impersonating Bing Crosby impersonating Blind Willie Johnson. The Lipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new one, like Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, is for discerning tastes only. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fuzzed out funk and dreamy episodes on Embryonic, but only after a few listens, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve fallen in love with it. Reminder: Regarding our 35th Anniversary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you have any old pictures or clippings from the old Whoot! or Atlantic City Weekly, we want them for inclusion in our big 35th anniversary edition coming out early next month. Likewise, if you were ever featured in an article in the Whoot! or Atlantic City Weekly (advertisers too!), drop me a line at, we may want to interview you for inclusion in the special edition weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on. n

Upgrade Traffic Signals T By Pinky Kravitz


O WEee M M COTNOTBHE R0 08, , 22000089 // AACCW E KkLlYy. .CCOOM

Come See Amy


HE FOLLOWING THREE ATLANTIC CITY projects are interlinked, as one would not be good without the others. Regardless of doing anything else, these projects should be a top priority for city planning and zoning officials, as they are long overdue. The first of these three projects involves, according to its title description, “major entry corridor traffic signal system upgrades and optimization.” The Atlantic City street system is a grid network with over 190 signalized intersections. Of those signals, 95 are located either on Atlantic or Pacific avenues or on the main corridors that lead into and out of the city. In recent years, this signal system has operated on one fixed timing plan for all hours of operation, with very limited ability for vehicle signal actuation to increase or decrease green-signal times to correspond with real-time traffic conditions. As a result, the system does not adjust to mitigate traffic congestion that occurs during the many and varying peak-traffic hours for employee trips, casino and resort visitors into and out of the city, and special-event traffic. Because of the potential for shorearea flooding and other potential needs for evacuation, traffic signal operation should be able to be modified quickly, safely, and in real-time to facilitate traffic flow during emergency conditions. The city should upgrade its traffic signals in these major traffic corridors. The upgrades should include installing the necessary traffic signal hardware along with the fiber-optic cable and electronics necessary to facilitate actuation, communication, multiple-signal timing plans and networking with other signals. By upgrading the signals to make them compatible with Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) operations, the signals will be included in the signal network of the proposed traffic operations. The key planning issues include signal optimization being implemented in coordination with the one-way proposal (if this indeed occurs on Atlantic and Pacific avenues), and work being completed during timeframes that minimize impacts to casino travel periods. The total cost of this project has been estimated at $19.9 million. It should be noted that in 2007, the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA), funded and managed a project that inventoried the existing condition of signals along the major Atlantic City roadway corridors to determine deficiencies and equipment requirements for real-time traffic monitoring and system optimization. Working with the city, the CRDA instituted a weekly teleconference with a number of major casinos along the Boardwalk to review signal timing and phasing during different peak hours. As a result, a company under the CRDA’s direction has developed and Atlantic City staffers have implemented revised-timing plans for use with existing signal equipment to minimize delays for all travelers into and out of the City.

Interconnect Existing Signals

The background for the second of the three projects is a complement to the first mentioned, and would upgrade

8 S. Morris Ave. Atlantic City, NJ • (609) 345-4916

the city’s remaining 95-or-so traffic signals so that the entire traffic grid can be interconnected and coordinated to reduce congestion, and improve evacuation during emergency conditions. The strategy is to upgrade the remaining traffic signals on Arctic and Baltic avenues and other streets to include fiber optics and electronics that will facilitate actuation, communication, multiple-signal timing plans, and networking with other signals. By upgrading the signals to make them compatible with ITS operations, the signals will be included in the network of the proposed regional traffic operations center. The total cost of this project has been estimated at $21.2 million.

Install Traffic Operations Center

Atlantic City has no centralized traffic management coordination program. The city currently has limited staffing focused on traffic issues. Even if all individual signal-timing plans became optimized, there is no existing mechanism for coordinating the operations of the city’s signals themselves, or coordinating them with those in adjacent municipalities. Peak travel periods can differ by time of day and day of the week. One size does not fit all for signal timing in Atlantic City. Also, traffic volumes related to several sporting and entertainment events scheduled in the city justifies a need for real-time traffic monitoring and signal timing changes. To correct this, the city should provide real-time traffic monitoring at a centralized facility. The objective is to maximize the efficiency of existing roadway capacity and decrease unnecessary and extended delays on the Atlantic City street network and primary regional roadways. The regional operations center would provide the ability to modify traffic signal operations and manage traffic to accommodate evacuation needs in the event of coastal flooding or other emergencies. The total cost of this project is estimated at $20 million.

An Interesting Experience

Last Friday, Oct. 2, I embarked on a five-day hiatus to Bermuda. Minutes after boarding, the pilot said there was concern about the luggage. Soon a drug-sniffing dog was brought in. At the end of the two-hour search, we took off with no comment about what had transpired. On Tuesday, the Bermuda newspaper, Royal Gazette, published a story that mentioned: “A search of the aircraft [my U.S. Airways flight] by Immigration and Custom officials uncovered 20 pounds of cannabis.” It is interesting to note that the story never made any paper in the United States. It is also nice to know how efficient the Immigration and Customs officers are. It was well worth the two-hour delay. n

Survivor to Rock O.C.

The Ocean City Education Foundation (OCEF) gets an “A” for arranging some top-notched entertainment earmarked for a worthy cause. This Friday, Oct. 9, the band Survivor (“Eye of the Tiger”) will perform at the Ocean City Music Pier. Proceeds from the event benefit the OCEF, a community-service organization designed to enhance the educational experience for students in the O.C. school district. “Twice a year we give out mini grants, where teachers apply to either create a program that’s outside the regular school budget, or to provide something like new software for the math program or, like we did last year, a new climbing wall for the phys-ed department,” says Dave Allegretto, OCEF chairperson. “And it isn’t necessarily for the schools that we raise the money. We might give mini grants to non-profits whose programs are in line with our mission.” Opening for Survivor is the band 123 Draw (above), comprised of O.C. High School students. They’ll perform classic-rock covers and a few new ones. The show starts at 8pm. Tickets are $35 and available through or by calling 525-9300. — Ray Schweibert

A.C. Goes Pink

If you’ve been noticing a lot of pink ribbons lately, then national Breast Cancer Awareness month is off to a good start. The national effort, dubbed Pinktober in many circles, is designed to encourage testing and examinations as well as support research efforts. In that spirit, many local events are planned as the region goes pink for October. This Friday (Oct. 9, 7pm) Atlantic City’s Hard Rock Café hosts a live performance by the band Revolver with proceeds benefiting the Shirley Mae Breast Cancer Assistance Fund, which helps local breast-cancer patients afford treatment. Meanwhile, Atlantic City will go pink as the annual Lights For The Cure also begins Friday. In conjunction with the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors authority, the city’s casinos will turn the resort’s skyline pink. The pink out extends to The Pier Shops at Caesars and The Quarter at the Tropicana. Shops at The Quarter will also offer special items and discounts with part of the proceeds benefiting Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The Borgata also supports LBBC, offering special “pink drinks” throughout the month. A few other events planned include “Pink Angels Night” at Ego at the Taj Mahal Oct. 23, which includes a performance by The Angels, and AtlantiCare’s signature Breast Cancer Awareness event and dinner Oct. 27 at The Sheraton in A.C. — Mike Pritchard

started doing open mikes, eventually getting a shot at the Comedy Stop in A.C. and later Las Vegas.â&#x20AC;? She was nine months pregnant with her first child when Kephart liked her routine and gave her a shot at the A.C. Stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Go have your baby, then call me,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; but I was so excited I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready now!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He must have thought I was crazy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m much more in line to comedy than I ever was to pageants,â&#x20AC;? adds Blizzard, a classically trained pianist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was always like an inappropriate Miss New Jersey. I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finally found my place.â&#x20AC;? Good material, timing and delivery are the key elements to satisfying an audience, but making the most of a big break is equally vital, says Bradley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of [Kephart] I got some really good running legs, and every year the career is increasing speed,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a comic and you have someone like that in your corner, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge help.â&#x20AC;? Bradleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a new comedy CD in the works and plans to make another trip abroad to entertain the troops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Butch called me a few years ago to do a fundraising comedy show in Somers Point [for autism], and I called him to help me with one in the Cherry Hill-Philly area in a couple weeks,â&#x20AC;? says Blizzard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just wonderful, and one of his most admirable traits is that he very much believes in giving back to his community. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those guys that when he asks you to do something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Of course Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was a nice treat for him to have asked me to do the show with him because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an all-around good guy who knows the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been good to him, and he wants to give back. I feel the same way.â&#x20AC;? n

ITH SLIGHT DEVIATIONS FROM THE NORM like hosting the annual Miss New Jersey pageant, the Ocean City Music Pier has served almost wholly as a venue for the art form its name implies. A diversity of outstanding musical entertainment has been held throughout the venerable establishmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 80-year history. On Sunday, Oct. 11, the Music Pier will stray a bit more from center when locally cultivated stand-up comedians Butch Bradley and Dena Blizzard perform there. Bradley was born in Atlantic City and raised in Margate, and opening the show will be Blizzard, a lifelong Winslow Township resident who earned the crown of Miss New Jersey 1995 at the Music Pier under her maiden name Dena Querubin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wanting to do a show in Ocean City for some time,â&#x20AC;? says Bradley, who launched his comedy career in Boston in 1996, moved to New York City in 2000 and now resides in Los Angeles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mother lives there and I wanted to offer myself to some of the people who might not want to travel to Atlantic City late at night to see a comedy show. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 7 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock show, and while my comedy is generally pretty clean, I might have a little more of an edge when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in a casino than what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing in O.C. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a little more family friendly. Dena Blizzardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing the show with me and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot of really hot material from the one-woman show she does.â&#x20AC;? Blizzardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aware that the O.C. audience may be a bit more genteel than those she sees elsewhere. She plans to acclimate accordingly, but says that the stand-up stage in general can sort of serve as liberation from her domestic routine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re around kids all the time, I enjoy it when I can finally talk like a truck driver,â&#x20AC;? says Blizzard, the mother of three and host of the Miss New Jersey pageant for the past two years. Bradley and Blizzard both perform regularly at national comedy hot spots, but they met each other and saw the early stages of their careers launched by Bob Kephartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Comedy Stop CafĂŠ in Atlantic City (later at another in Las Vegas). Bradleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also done several television appearances on Comedy Central; HBO; the Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson and others. He has entertained the USO troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and was recently selected as one of four comics who will travel to Israel to entertain children of family members slain by terrorists as part of a charitable foundation run by Jerry Seinfeld. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was honored to be among the four chosen to go,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I think because I live in an orthodox Jewish neighborhood in Los Angeles, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m qualified.â&#x20AC;? Blizzard was always an outgoing sort who saw the funny side of things, but it was not until after her husband bought her stand-up classes at a Northeast Philadelphia school that she began performing before audiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told my husband, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing left Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to do â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stand-up.â&#x20AC;? So, for my 30th birthday he bought me a comedy class,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just loved it, and


Sexy with a Dash of Class By Whitney Ullman


ALLING ALL BEAUTIFUL WOMEN OUT THERE. Yes, I mean you; do I have your attention? I feel as though you need a good talking to about your wardrobe choices. No matter if you’re a plain Jane or a glamorous diva, you should still try to wear clothes that fit you properly and that show off your class and not your ass. I have seen some plain Janes with these baggy clothes that are so unbecoming to their bodies and these glamorous divas who think that wearing the shortest skirt or lowest-cut top will somehow make them look hot. It certainly will to some people but the question is: Why do we do this? Is it because it makes us feel sexier or maybe because we are trying to attract someone in order to score a date? Believe me, I understand the phases we go through where we want to show off our female bodies because we think it looks sexy, but whatever the case, I have found that men really like women who show off their natural beauty as well as exude a great personality. Being natural doesn’t mean being boring, it just means you don’t need to wear the tightest, most revealing outfit ever along with caked on makeup. You could still look very sexy in a classy way with minimal makeup to accent your already beautiful features. Likewise, you could be the hottest, sexiest girl out there, but if you don’t have a nice personality then forget it, your beauty scale and approachability just went down. Having a great personality doesn’t have to scare you either, it could just simply mean being a nice person, not necessarily being the life of the party. And another

thing to remember is that your personality can absolutely outweigh your looks. All in all, the bottom line is if you are looking for fun then by all means, go ahead girl, and do your thing. But if you are looking for a serious relationship then you have to portray yourself as serious and with class. Let your natural beauty shine through because maybe you don’t see it, but some great person will.

Being natural doesn’t mean being boring, it just means you don’t need to wear the tightest, most revealing outfit ever along with caked on makeup. Whitney’s Radar As a Galloway resident I always feel lucky for the fact that I have the pleasure of walking through Historic Smithville at any time because I live so close. Recently I visited a friend of mine who owns Herban Legend Massage, which, by the way, is one of the most serene places to go for your mind, body and soul. I definitely recommend stopping in and chatting with my girl Quavin. After my recent visit there, I noticed a great cloth-

ing store next door called Serenity Boutique. When I walked in, I Immediately fell in love. They have great design sense and they know how to order the right pieces that are in style and what I like to call “sexy-classy.” On their Facebook page they describe themselves as a trendy and classy fashion boutique. The truth is, I liked them so much that I already wore a fabulous outfit to an video shoot and I can’t wait to wear my new fall hound’s-tooth-pattern double-button Jacket in this chilly weather! You should definitely make this place a priority to visit when thinking of going shopping, especially since they just got in their new fall line. Plus, the owners and staff are super friendly and excited to gain your business. As they like to say, they are southern New Jersey’s best-kept fashion secret. They are located at 615 E Moss Mill Rd. in Smithville. Find them on Facebook too, because their page is always being updated with new designs and styles for all seasons. Make sure to tell Marvin and Mary I sent you! n

Danza’s New Beat A By David J. Spatz

a rousing number in the background. “Any time you step out of your comfort zone, you take a risk,” he adds. “If you have a reputation to protect, you’re putting it on the line.” Danza decided to do the act as he recovered from a near-fatal skiing accident in 1993. He took stock of his life and realized there were some things he’d always wanted to do but, for various reasons, never had. “I always wanted to be a song-anddance man, like the guys I watched when I was growing up,” he says. “It’s really an incredible thing to go out with a band and perform and entertain for 75 to 90 minutes by yourself, and when you leave the people are happy.” Danza was especially awed by artists like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr., who would make movies one week and then play Las Vegas the next. “I wanted to be them,” he recalls. Danza surprised the skeptics and has done so well with the show that he’s since written many variations of the act. Mostly all focus on the music of the Great American Songbook and the artists who sang the original songs. “I just love the romance of those songs, the words are so terrific” says Danza, who gained some musical insight to that material when he was befriended by legendary songwriter and lyricist Sammy Cahn after Danza moved to Los Angeles. Danza’s first paying gig was in Atlantic City when the late television and business mogul Merv Griffin booked him into his Boardwalk casino. He’s since performed around the world, recorded an album of standards and continues to hone his musical skills. In the past several years, Danza taught himself to play and became proficient on an instrument that would seem out of phase with the era to which he pays musical homage. Danza plays a mean ukulele. “And now I’ve adapted the ukulele to the Great American Songbook,” he says. “You should hear me do ‘Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out to Dry’ on the ukulele.” n

T FACE VALUE, TONY DANZA, the blue-collar “Everyman” of show business, wasn’t doing anything out of character for an actor who moonlights as a song-and-dance man. He was rehearsing a band when he took a break one afternoon last week to talk about the show he’s bringing to the Atlantic City Hilton on Saturday, Oct. 10. Nothing unusual about that, except for one small detail. It wasn’t his seven-piece band he’d been working with; it was the 130 members of the Northeast High School marching band in Philadelphia. Since early September, Danza has been teaching 10th grade history at the school as part of a new A&E network reality series that will document the actor’s latest career challenge. “It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever done, definitely the hardest,” says Danza. “I’ve got to do my lesson plan every day and then write my [casino] act. But right now, I’m on the practice field helping Mr. [William] Wenglicki with the marching band.” If living the life of a 58-year-old rookie high-school history teacher wasn’t enough of a challenge, Danza happily accepted an offer to play the one-night casino gig as the Columbus Day weekend headliner. Ever since he began doing his live one-man variety show nearly 15 years ago, Danza has always found a way to return to the stage regardless of any other projects in which he might be involved. “I just miss the stage, I missed entertaining, I miss performing,” says Danza, a former professional boxer who was plucked out of a gym and plunked down on a television sound stage in 1978 as one of the ensemble of players on the hit sitcom Taxi. That show made him a star, and Who’s The Boss, which ran for eight seasons beginning in 1984, made him a household name. Danza has never been afraid to tackle something new or different. Whether it was his boxing career (professional record: 9-3), his turn as a daytime talk show host, his stint as the host of the boxing reality series The Contender, or even anchoring the nationally televised Miss America Pageant, the Brooklyn native has never backed away from a challenge. “I think I’ve got more guts than brains, and you can probably think of an alliteration that would work better [than guts],” Danza says with a laugh, and sounding more teacher-like as the marching band practiced



Zombie Killin’ Zealot Woody Harrelson is a natural born killer in hilarious ‘Zombieland’ By Lori Hoffman


FTER 10 DAYS COVERING THE Toronto Film Festival, this critic slipped out of film-festival mode big time with Zombieland. This hilarious horror comedy joins Shaun of the Dead as the best movies ever made that play the battle to survive a horde of flesh-eating zombies for laughs. A limited sub-genre, I’ll grant you, but Woody Harrelson gives an Academy Award-worthy performance as a dedicated zombie zapper whose desire to kill as many of the disgusting critters as possible is fueled by a tragic loss. All right, I’m kidding about the Academy Award consideration, but he should be up for whatever comedy-film performance awards are out there for his gleeful turn as a Twinkie-obsessed survivalist in a landscape littered with abandoned vehicles and the undead zombies who once drove them. Our narrator for this tale of a planet turned into Zombieland via a zombie-inducing virus is Columbus (Jessie Eisenberg) a germophobic, neurotic nerd whose already-screwed-up emotional

state made him an unlikely survivor of the first wave of zombies. He lives by a set of rules designed to keep him alive, topped by cardio (the slow, fat people were killed first), and the double tap (when you shoot a zombie, make sure he is dead with a second shot, preferably to the head). Columbus meets up with Tallahassee (Harrelson), the well armed and devoted zombie killer, and while wary of a couple of sisters, Wichita (Emma Stone) each other, they strike up a road part- and 12-year-old Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), who are less than truthful. Matter of fact, they were con artists prior to the zombie invasion, so forgive them if they find it difficult to get out of the habit. The girls are looking to make it to an amusement park in California that is rumored to be zombie-free. Of course, if it really were zombie-free, the film would not have its gut-busting finale in that nership. After all, there aren’t many very same amusement park. There is also non-zombies left on the planet. While a trip to Hollywood, where the foursome Columbus is content to avoid conflicts encounter a Hollywood icon who has by keeping out of dangerous places survived, and even goes out among the (like bathrooms), Tallahassee delights zombies in makeup so he can play golf. The heart of the film is the witty, in any and all opportunities to have the “zombie kill of the week,” his version of laugh-a-minute screenplay by the writing a SportsCenter highlight when the only team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. For my money Zombieland is the funsport left is zombie killing. Along the way the boys hook up with niest comedy of the year, topping by

One-Hit Flights O By Jerry Blavat

NCE AGAIN, GREETINGS AND salutations. Let’s call it a ball in the fall. October is a great month down at the Jersey shore, especially with my buddy Herb “Bubba” Birch still doing his thing at the Atlantic City Country Club on Thursdays. And the big news is the start of Fabulous ’50s Weekend — we’ll kick it off Friday, Oct. 16, with a gigantic dance party at the Wildwoods Convention Center. Then on Saturday the Philly Boys are back in town. And we’ve got the exclusive “Philly Boys” T-shirt featuring Frankie, Chubby, the Liberty Bell, yours truly the Geator, and the official Phillies logo. It was designed by Frank Avalon Jr. and will be available Friday night, along with all of our CDs. For more info about the event, call 729-4000. Now, let’s ask the Geator.

The song ‘Do What you Wanna Do” was recorded by one-hit wonders Five Flights Up.

FASHION (Continued from preceding page) weather may become frigid, forget about packing away your open-toed shoes into storage. They’ll still be seeing plenty of exposure for fall. After all, who ever said fashion had to be practical? Randi Migioia, accessories buyer for Knit Wit in Margate, says her picks can be easily summed up in funky waist belts, long sweaters, boyfriend jackets (blazers), and denim leggings.

The Good, The Fabulous, The Legging

Fall attire tends to be a bit dressier than the casual, beachy styles of woebegone summers. Shelly DeLuca, co-owner of Rissy Roo’s in Linwood, says she’s anticipating big sellers for her store to include anything short, sequined, and paired with a clutch.

For daytime, leggings still rule and aren’t going anywhere. “Shorter dresses are a big hit right now, and you can easily dress them up with some glitzy heels or down with some simple jewelry.” DeLuca says that one upand-coming trend is adding pockets to dresses for a more casual feel, especially dresses with a balloon bottom, a look that was seen last season and is still growing in formal wear. For daytime, leggings still rule and aren’t going anywhere. Just think of them as fashion’s equivalent of the Rolling Stones. Lilli Marchiani, manager of Marielena

Skirts: Short and dressy are in this year. in Margate, says leggings with tunic tops are still big for casual wear, in addition to anything with ruffles. Marchiani says one of the biggest pairings will be wide jeans with a ruffled shirt, noting that pairs by Joe’s Jeans are one of the store’s biggest sellers. Fear not men, we haven’t forgotten about you either. Kevin Morris, manager at Heritage Surf & Sport in Margate, says the store is stocking up on apparel sans large brand-name logos. “We’re looking at a lot of apparel that’s not necessarily super branded,” he says. “Small logos work really well. V-neck T-shirts will also be big. Color wise, it’s definitely a different look than traditional black or white. It’s more bright colors that are toned down.” Morris notes maroon, blue, and green as examples. He also says that pants will still be mostly denim, with grey-based and black denim being popular. Also, while the extremely distressed look (jeans that look like they’ve survived a bear attack) is taking a hiatus from the fashion scene, almost all the pants this season will have some sort of vintage treatment to it. see more online @

Hair-Raising Drama & Mysterious Nails

The movement seen last season of putting down the straightening irons in favor of hair with a little more body is only growing. Long, straight, and, well ... boring, is seeing some major competition in the way of texture, curls, and drama. Perry Shapiro, owner of the Panache Salon in Northfield, says that hair for both men and women is seeing a boost in texture and styling. For women, Shapiro says that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeing hair going a little shorter than in the past, with loose waves and curls. Think Taylor Swift and Madonna (a la 2009, NOT â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like A Virginâ&#x20AC;?). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taking big pieces of hair, clamping down a curling iron, and finger combing, will produce a soft, loose look,â&#x20AC;? he says. Darker hair will also see a pick-up, as lighter hair tends to wash beachgoers out once they lose their tans (R.I.P. bronze skin. It was fun while it lasted.) For men, Shapiro says he sees hair becoming longer in the upcoming months, with pomades and fibers being used to separate hair with movement. He says that gel tends to give hair a hard,

stiff look, akin to looking plastered across oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head. Liane Scattone, stylist at 401 West Hair and Beauty Salon in Egg Harbor Township says that she too is expecting to see plenty of requests for bigger hair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big hairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s glamour with teasing and hair spray. You can use a fine toothcomb to tease it or just use a black. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glamorous, not just straight and flat.â&#x20AC;? Scattone also says curls will be going more structured, with big loops and body. Men will also be going longer, albeit a bit shorter on the sides and longer on top. She says the short and shaved look will continue to be popular with older men going for a youthful look. Scattone also says that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expecting to see plenty of matte browns and ashy tones for hair, with highlights being taken out or taken down a few tones. For nails, she says the area will be noticing an influx of darker colors, notably dark burgundy, deep purples, and black. A few of our top picks here to achieve the look include hues from Essieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new fall line, including Midnight Cami and Angora Cardi. n

Farm Fresh

Southern New Jersey abounds with local farm markets, and evidence of why weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re known as the Garden State By Frank Gabriel


AVING GROWN UP IN THE epicenter of southern New Jerseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrated agriculture industry â&#x20AC;&#x201D; our first, and worst, employment was picking eggplants in south Vineland â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we thought it timely to offer readers advice about some outstanding local farm markets. These sorts of enterprises are worthwhile for a number of reasons. First, food is incredibly fresh, sometimes even harvested that very day. Second, there are big bargains to be had, by eliminating several layers of middle and retail purveyors and dealing directly with the grower. From a purely karmic point of view, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something infinitely gratifying supporting the hardworking, devoted families who provide such exquisite vegetables, fruit, flowers and related products. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start with Butterhoffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shady Brook Farm (5800 White Horse Pike/ Route 30), easily the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest â&#x20AC;&#x201D; established well over 100 years ago â&#x20AC;&#x201D; located on a rural stretch of blacktop smack dab on the border between Galloway and Mullica Township. We stopped here less than a week ago and were delighted to still find moist, just-picked Jersey corn, although they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making any promises about how much longer it would last. Another real treat were cranberries, among the first of the season, just out of some local bog no doubt. Lush, fat con-

cord grapes, bluish-purple and dripping dew, were also prominently on display. Late-summer products tomatoes, eggplant and peppers still lingered like that corn, sharing space on shelves already laden with squash and pumpkins. That should last until about the time of our first frost, sometimes not until early November. We were informed during our visit that although this larger operation will close on Oct. 31, an informal honor stand would remain up just a few hundred yards away, through the winter season. For a reminder that Egg Harbor Township was once a decidedly rural environ, check out Hackettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market on Mill Road, less than a mile east of the Fire Road intersection. At this time of year, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have pumpkins, squash and gourds in great abundance. Hackettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also farms their own herbs like basil, mint and thyme, plus bedding plants and hardy cold-weather items like colorful mums. Contained within their building is a small in-house bakeshop and deli, in addition to their year-round, quality fresh produce. Just behind the Festival at Hamilton Shopping Center, Pleasant Valley Farms (4520 Harding Highway), owned by the Boerner family, grows and develops a wide array of items. Initially, they caught our eye on Wednesday at Ocean Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer downtown farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market, for their exqui-

site, oversized blackberries. And although those antioxidant-rich indigo beauties are long gone for this season, Pleasant Valley transitions nicely by offering a wide selection of apples, onions, sweet potatoes, squash and pumpkins. The Boernerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freshdug potatoes are a real taste treasure, as they possess much of the earthy character of their fertile native soil, near the Tuckahoe River. They also fashion an artisanal quality line of proprietary of jellies, jams and honey. We bought a luscious, deep-amber bees blend loaded with chunks of walnut. The honey â&#x20AC;&#x201D; natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only food that never spoils; your fun food fact for the day â&#x20AC;&#x201D; served brilliantly for standard uses, plus salad dressings and as a healthier, alternative topping for ice cream sundaes. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be remiss not to mention the

indisputed royalty of regional farm markets, Bertuzziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Route 557 in Buena Vista Township. Stretching out across several acres alongside the highway, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a kaleidoscopic, snazzy showcase. The Rolls Royce of the industry for all that springs from the local terra. Quality is never an issue, and though you might pay a bit more than other humbler stands, everything they offer is pretty much gorgeous and perfect. Also, attached to the north side of Bertuzziâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is a darn good bakeshop. We especially recommend their creative Fruits of the Forest pie, featuring an assortment of berries paired with apples. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that symbol of American enterprise that you seek, ride a few miles north to Simoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on East Oak Road, also in Buena Vista, just a quick left turn off Route 557. At this time of year youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find at least a half-dozen varieties of apple, both reds and greens. Ten bucks or so will get you a bag big enough to fill half of your trunk. They also feature amazing pears plus exotic persimmons and for a very limited time, castagne (the Italian word for chestnuts.) Earlier in the season Simoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will offer fine peaches, multiple kinds and colors of plums, apricots and their hybrid offspring, pluots. If you visit, be sure to say hello to Applesauce, the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resident guardian donkey. n E-mail Frank Gabriel at see more online @

Don Rickles Where: The Borgata When: Fri. & Sat., Oct. 9 & 10 (9pm) How Much: $75

Don Rickles returns to the Borgata with a well-seasoned appeal to new audiences By Michael Pritchard



O C T O B E R 8 , 2 0 0 9 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

T’S BEEN A LONG, STEADY CAREER for “Mr. Warmth” Don Rickles, filled with iconic performances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, in films such as Kelly’s Heroes and stand-up routines that made “Hello Dummy” and “You hockey puck” catch phrases. But for audiences that catch Rickles Oct. 9 and 10 at the Borgata, one other iconic performance is bound to come to mind. After all, isn’t that Mr. Potato Head up there? Even though Rickles has been a casino staple and an Atlantic City regular for decades his work on the Toy Story films has introduced him to a new generation. The films have just been re-released in 3-D and work on a third film has begun. Rickles has provided the voice of Mr. Potato Head since the first 1995 film. And it’s made the 83-year-old family friendly. For a comedian that’s made a career of insults (though he calls it exaggeration), Rickles tells AC Weekly that a cartoon voice star was never part of the plan. “John Lassiter [the director of the films] came down to see me a few years ago and said, ‘Don, we have this idea for a cartoon,’” Rickles says with a pause. “I don’t do cartoons, but hey, little did I know. And he said, ‘No, no, your voice is perfect for this. You gotta do this.’ And he tested my voice and he said, ‘Well, you’re the only guy who can do this potato head.’ So that’s how it came about and that’s how my grand kids know me.” And many young parents as well, but for Rickles, who has been playing in front of live audiences since the 1950s, his long success took a little more than a few turns as a potential French Fry. “The kids are too young to see me [as Mr. Potato Head] and the older people already know me,” he says. “But it makes it kind of fun for the families that see it and know its me.” Still there’s no denying that Rickles, long past when many comics of his era have faded into obscurity, still packs a punch with young audiences. His return to the Borgata, which draws one of the youngest and hippest crowds in the resort, proves it. Rickles can still pack ‘em in whatever their age.

to think I’m a regular Fred Astaire,” he jokes), is based mostly on improvisation. “I do improvise a lot and the show varies from night to night,” Rickles says. “I never know. But I am blessed with that. It just comes to me. My environment — what I see in the audience and what I see around me. So I create a lot of things each night and it makes the shows different. But you do have to have a beginning, a middle and an end. But in between there are spots and I pick out new stuff I do on my own.”

‘When I worked joints during the war I used to get out on stage between girls that were taking their clothes off.’ It’s a style that has worked for Rickles since his earliest days. “When I worked joints, especially during the war when there were a lot of servicemen around and I did striptease joints — they don’t have them anymore — I used to get out on stage between four or five girls that were taking their clothes off — which was really nothing compared to today — but anyway I was the comic relief. And I would do impressions badly and I told jokes and I started “I’m very thrilled about it; to bring in to talk to the audience and they started the younger people,” he says. “Through talking to me. I wouldn’t call them hecktheir parents over the years, they started lers because they were in my corner, but to talk about me and more and more the they would yell up to me and I’d come young college kids come and see me, back with some fast stuff on my own.” which is kind of great. Because what I do It was a style that led Rickles to a is not something done the regular way. natural type of environment for his act In other words, it’s more of a theatrical — casinos. performance and its about everything in “I’ve always had the reputation that life today. And it’s exaggerated. the high rollers always enjoyed me,” “They say it’s insult comedy,” he says. he says. “In the old days when I first “But it’s not really insults. It’s exaggera- started out, you know the Frank Sinatra tion about all of us. And about life and image of that kind of an audience. I’ve what surround us. So it’s worked very always maintained that kind of an audience. But as the years have gone well for me and I’ve been successful.” Rickles presents a show that, while buy, as we know, the casinos are filled structured and containing some staples up with families and the families have such as song and dance (“I’m starting come to see me. Because I never do

anything where they’d say, ‘Oh my God what did he say?’ “I mean they may say that out of seeing something different, which is the secret of success as far as I’m concerned,” he says. “But when I started out I had a lot of rejection. But I kept at it and believed in it and finally came through.” Rickles has more venues then ever as casinos have spread across the country. But he says he always has a sweet spot for Las Vegas and Atlantic City, where he has played every casino in town. Rickles has never been a stranger to the Jersey shore. “I played Wildwood once, and, believe it or not, that was right before Kelly’s Heroes,” he says. “We had our bags packed, I did the show and we left from the show to the airport in New York and flew to Yugoslavia to film.” The result was involvement in a film that still is paying dividends for his career. In fact, modern audiences may think of Rickles as a cartoon potato, but in truth, he’s worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood (Clint Eastwood, Robert De Niro, Donald Sutherland). His first film role came in 1958’s Run Silent Run Deep, a classic World War II submarine movie starring two of the biggest stars Hollywood has ever produced — Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster. “That was kind of exciting, you know, my first picture and here I am with Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster,” he says. “I was a nervous wreck when I first met them. Clark Gable was a marvelous gentleman. And so was Burt. But that was my first picture and I had never done anything in front of the camera. And Robert Wiser was a great director so I had the best things going for me and being part of Run Silent Run Deep was very exciting and I loved doing it.” So it’s been a long haul from a stripper’s comic relief to casino legend to a family favorite. But Rickles says retirement isn’t in the picture and there will be more to come. “I enjoy it and I’ll keep going,” he says. “Thank God, as long as the audience shows up. It’s better than laying on the couch. I’ll have plenty of time for that some day. Right now it’s fun for me to work.” n see more online @

Kelly Clarkson

Where: Trump Taj Mahal When: Saturday, Oct. 10, 8pm How Much: $39 & $59

By Lori Hoffman

By Lori Hoffman


In doing research for this article, I came across Clarkson’s first interview for American Idol. Here are some of her answers as a wide-eyed 20-year-old from Burleson, Texas.

7 years after becoming the first ‘American Idol’ winner, Kelly Clarkson remains a top pop icon

7 years after becoming the first ‘American Idol’ winner, Kelly Clarkson remains a top pop icon

‘The album is very personal and all over the place. All my albums always have been. I don’t know about you, but I get really pissed off when I buy an album and every song’s the same.’

HEN KELLY CLARKSON BECAME the first American Idol winner back in the summer of 2002, it looked like a snap. Win Idol, become a major pop star. However, as we’ve seen in the years since, that’s not always the way it works. You need talent, determination and some luck to retain your popularity in the Internet-fueled quicksand that is today’s music industry. Kelly Clarkson has done just that. It was her second album, Breakaway, in 2004, that broke her as a major, well respected pop star. It has gone on to sell 10 million copies and features the hit singles “Because of You,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” and her signature song, “Since U Been Gone.” That song and the album earned Grammys for best female pop vocal performance and best pop vocal album. Clarkson is currently on tour in support of her fourth album, All I Ever Wanted, featuring the hit singles “Already Gone” and “My Life Would Suck Without You,” the latter of which broke a record on the Billboard Hot 100, with the largest leap to No. 1 in the chart’s 50-year history. With All I Ever Wanted, Clarkson has returned to

her pop and dance song roots. Her 2007 release, My December, was more introspective and darker than her previous work, and Clive Davis, the chairman of her record label RCA, publicly chastised her for not listening to him about her song selections. However, she stuck to her decision and although the album wasn’t as commercially successful as hoped, she jumped right back in and produced her latest album, which tries to balance the maturity of the former with the more commercial sound of the latter. Talking with MTV about her new album last spring, Clarkson said that the title track “Is one of my favorite songs. I love the soulful rock vibe. It’s the kind of song I love performing and recording and writing.” Working with OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote and produced some of the tracks on the new album, Clarkson noted, “We hit it off and wrote five or six songs together, several of which made it to the album. You meet new people and you vibe together. There are a lot of different sounds on the album but they are all me.” In a chat with Popeater, she talked about

how she saw her new album. “It’s kind of like a roller coaster, because 1) I’m a woman, but 2) I love that ride through an album because it tells a story. But there’s some really fun stuff on here that I’ve never done before — like this one song I did with Tedder called ‘If I Can’t Have You.’ It’s very like Eurythmics meets the Killers — very different for me. It’s a lot sexier. Then there’s other stuff like ‘Cry,’ which is the most personal song on the album and is about betrayal. Anyway, [the album] is very personal and all over the place. All my albums always have been. I don’t know about you, but I get really pissed off when I buy an album and every song’s the same.” Clarkson is friends with last year’s new Idol judge, singer-songwriter Kara DioGuardio, who co-wrote, with Katy Perry, “I Do Not Hook Up” from Clarkson’s new album. In an interview with VH-1, Clarkson talked about making the video for the song. “It’s about a good girl who in her fantasies is being bad. I write a lot of my treatments for my videos. When it came to filming this, I said, ‘Why did I write this? I have to crawl across a table and I’m making out with a guy I don’t

Why do you want to be an American Idol? Being on a stage in front of millions is the biggest rush for me. It’s like I’m kind of nervous at first, but once I get out there I never want to leave the stage. I also think that the industry could use a little class. If you couldn’t sing, what talent would you want? I’ve always wanted to pick up the guitar. I just think it’s the coolest instrument. What’s in your CD player right now? “A Beautiful Day” by U2. What are you going to call your first CD? Mood Swings, Running Late or Sleeping In. What’s an album your friends would be surprised you own? A couple of Bing Crosby CDs. — LH

know and throw him down on the table.’ I got very nervous.” Clarkson also admitted in the interview that she is a big fan of Twilight. “I’m a nerd about Twilight. I want to get a song on the new Twilight film soundtrack but I am such a nerd about soundtracks and Twilight in particular.” Clarkson had a big response recently for her blog in regards to the Kenye West incident on the MTV Music Awards. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, she said, “I’m never on-line. I don’t Facebook or My Space or Twitter or anything because I’m just lazy. I didn’t know that many people would read my blog. It was just kind of funny. This industry is all about fun. I’ve been on awards shows for other genres of music and been accepted. It was a little unsettling to [see West] make a teenager cry.” She added in the same interview when asked about Ellen Degeneres joining American Idol, “I’m a huge fan of Ellen, so I think she is going to bring something funny to the table. It’s something fresh for the show. It’s cool to change things up a bit.” ■

His “day job” is videographer and photo editor, and, as if life weren’t busy enough, he currently also is “ghoulmaster” at Six Flag Great Adventure’s Halloween Fright Fest — which includes a Michael Jackson Tribute this year. There’s more to this than impersonation — Carter grew to know “Michael” over the years, and he shares some memories here.

Tell me about the process of becoming a Michael Jackson impersonator. It wasn’t something I planned. I started out just being a huge fan, gathering everything I could about him. My bedroom was full of posters and memorabilia. And then every party I went to, people would beg me to dance like Michael. After a while, I realized I could make money doing this, and I started doing the full make-up and costume. So it just became like second-nature. What drew you to Jackson? At first it was the videos, the music and the dance. I became a fan during the Dangerous period, and then I started watching his interviews and learning what kind of person he was. Hearing him just totally shaped my life — I live by his

words of treating everybody kindly, not making judgments on people. Also, even though he was grown up, he was still into childhood things like Disney, amusement parks and rides — all the stuff that I’ll love no matter how old I get.

The late MJ with Carter

There was darker news, too, when attention turned from Jackson’s humanitarian side to changes in his appearance, and the sexual abuse allegations. How did that affect you? In the beginning, I felt the need to defend him wherever I could. I would get in fights, and lost friends over it, and I finally realized I can’t change people’s minds. People are very closeminded — they’ll have an opinion based on whatever the media says, or whatever don’t think that I’m him. Some impersonators have gotten plastic surgery, they hear in the subways. almost live their life as him, but I really have my own life. In person, was he as you anticipated? As a kid, it was almost like he wasn’t a real person, he was just so cool, so I didn’t You’ve been to Neverland? really picture meeting him. But as I started Twice! On Michael’s 45th birthday, I was going to wherever he was going to be, he with fans who gathered at a gate outside took notice of me a couple times when his home, putting gifts out, blasting music I was totally dressed up, and other times from cars, dancing. Other celebrities might when I wasn’t. He’d compliment me on call the cops, but security drove out and my outfits — some celebrities don’t like said, “Michael wants to invite you in.” We impersonations, but he was totally into it. had to turn in our cameras, sign confidentiality agreements. It was becoming night So there we were, face to face. and all the trees were lit up, twinkling, with To what extent does impersonation track animals and stuff on the lawns. It was more than you can imagine. The big Neverland through your day? I don’t dress as Michael 24-7, and I golden gates opened, and a children’s choir

was singing. A train took us to the amusement park, where we stayed until late that night. The next time I went was when the allegations came out, in 2003. A friend called and said, “You’re on the VIP guest list for tomorrow in Neverland.” I flew out that night, and spent the entire day at a kind of support party, with his family and friends. There were literally moments when I was sitting in the guesthouse with Catherine and LaToya [Jackson], and it was absolutely unbelievable. When was your last meeting? Just two months before he died. I always said I wouldn’t get a tattoo unless he autographed me and I could permanently tattoo it on. Michael loved the idea, and he signed his name on my back with a Sharpie. Then he stood back and went, “Hmmmm …,” and then he wrote “Love” above his name. For the first time ever, I requested a picture with him, and thank God I did, because it was weirdly just in time. Two months later, I was at the funeral — one of the hardest days of my life. Watching them bring in the casket of a man who was in my life literally every day felt exactly like a family member dying. n Send Carole Mattessich your suggestions for interesting subjects for our “People” column.
