Library Seeks Suggestions for New A.C. Museum The Atlantic city Free Public Library invites the public to attend a special forum on Wednesday, dec. 14, to learn more about the Atlantic city experience museum — a newly proposed, world-class museum and research center dedicated to preserving the city’s rich history and multicultural heritage. The library recently hired the Princeton-based mills+Schnoering Architects, LLc to conduct a feasibility study for the project, and seeks public input to help provide the m+S team a foundation from which to begin work. “The feasibility study will provide essential information needed to move forward with this project, including defining the market area and community needs, analyzing current and projected trends, demographics and potential competition, outlining potential funding sources, and providing parameters related to the location and size of the museum,” says AcFPL public information officer don Latham. The forum will start at 2pm in the meeting room of the main library, located at One North Tennessee Ave. in Atlantic city. “We think it’s the perfect time for a project like this,” says Latham. “There has been much talk about the need for more non-gaming attractions, and interest in the city’s history has increased with [the HbO series] Boardwalk Empire. Our Heston collection of Atlantic city history features a wealth of resources and memorabilia — we want to make that more accessible to people.” For more information, go to the Atlantic city experience Web site at or call 345-2269, ext. 3112. — Ray Schweibert

‘Some Girls’ Re-issues (Universal)

The Stockton Performing Arts center holiday program, which includes performances of The Nutcracker by the Atlantic city ballet Friday and Saturday, dec. 9 and 10, closes on monday, dec. 12, with a performance of another local holiday staple, the South Jersey Area Wind ensemble. The 65-member group is made up of musicians from throughout the region, many music teachers, that play for the love of their craft. Their annual holiday concert is titled “Snow Globe” this year and searches the world for holiday traditions and music. The ensemble explores the long history and rich culture based in a variety of folk music, folklore, sacred texts and secular fantasy. Vocals will be provided by the Stockton chorale and Oratorio Society. The ensemble is celebrating its 15th year playing in southern New Jersey. The international flair for the holiday show echoes the traditional spring concert the group performed at Stockton in April that also celebrated music from around the world. Still, while the ensemble may look to the world for inspiration, it’s southern New Jersey where they are home for the holidays. Tickets are $10 for the 7:30pm show. Visit — Mike Pritchard

The greatest albums of one of the greatest rock band’s of all time continue to get the re-mastered, re-release and deluxe-issue treatment. Universal’s latest upgrade is the Rolling Stone’s masterful 1978 album, which is available as a super deluxe box set (2CD/DVD set with banned 7-inch “Beast of Burden” vinyl, 100-page hardback book, Helmut Newton print, postcard set and poster); a deluxe 2CD set featuring a remastered version of the original album, and an amazing second disc of “new” tracks (both in the deluxe box as well), including the never-before-heard “No Spare Parts,” and digital, vinyl and CD versions of the original album remastered. Like the recent re-release of Exile on Main Street, this new glimpse into the Stones’ seminal late-’70s effort is outstanding and if you can afford the box set, it’d make a perfect holiday gift for the Stones fan in your life. — Jeff Schwachter

The uber-popular nightclub is open three nights per week, and will soon add a multi-faceted, live-music component called the 21 Bar to be open daily. By Ray Schweibert

ride abounded during dusk’s guided tour and ribbon-cutting ceremony inside Caesars during the summer of 2009 — and with good reason. The multi-tiered, 10,000-square-foot nightclub was cutting-edge to the core, more spacious and designed differently than anything atlantic City had seen to that point, and bolstered by a top-flight lighting-and-sound system and some of the best house and special-guest dJs in the business. With the club came the catchphrase “The evolution of nightlife,” which many may have assumed was little more than that — a catchphrase. not so, though, as since that debut the club has not only perpetuated a trend of attracting the latest in nightlife aristocracy, it tweaked certain components to maximize its location on the boardwalk. a low-key lounge area called the dawn room was converted into a popular live-music venue called the boardwalk beer garden during the summer, and now a third element is due to debut by the dawn of the new Year — the 21 bar. “We had a bit of an epiphany,” says kevin Friel of dusk Management group, the nightclub’s parent company. “We have this real estate on the boardwalk in a centralized location, with plenty of foot traffic going by, but it was being underutilized. The club itself is three nights a week [Friday, saturday and industry night Tuesday], and the 21 bar will be open seven days a week from around noon till 3am or even later on saturday nights, giving those leaving dusk a place to stop and maybe get a post-nightclub cocktail or extend their night a little longer.” The 21 bar — a name playing off many references, among them the number of specialty cocktails the club provides — will be accessed off Caesars’ second level where the main entrance to the nightclub is located. “We’re putting a decent amount of capital into that space and it’s going to be a bit of a hybrid,” says Friel. “it will fulfill the aspect of a sports bar at certain times, with 11 55-inch high-definition televisions and a drop screen that comes down over the stage to be used during big events like a Floyd Mayweather fight, the super bowl — anything like that. it’ll be a great place to check out that kind of action. There will also be live music there seven days a week, similar to the beer garden, but on weekends it will likely be more highenergy cover bands backed up by a dJ, and on weekdays maybe acoustic duos and trios. That will be the staple of it — a place to go see live music and get a great beer or a great cocktail. “There’s also a dance floor — we have the ability to change that into pretty much any-

Like us:

Dusk continues to evolve thing we want and work on the fly. i think it’s going to be very, very successful and be a great addition to the building.” and of course the nightclub itself will continue to bring in the hottest action in contemporary entertainment, including a special industry-night appearance (Tues., dec. 20) by swedish House Mafia singer John Martin, who will sing his hit song “save the World Tonight.” dusk’s new Year’s eve party will feature an open bar of premium top-shelf spirits from 9:30pm-12:30am ($99 per person), and those entering the club after it reverts back to cash-bar status can do so at $20 per head. also on the horizon, nadia ali, a Pakistani-american singer/songwriter and prominent figure on the electronic music scene for about the last decade, will appear at dusk on Jan. 13. “as you know, we’ve won ‘best Place to spot a Celebrity’ [at the AC Weekly reader’s Choice nightlife awards] both years we’ve been open, and are going for our third straight award this year [the fourth annual awards will be announced Jan. 27; vote now at acweekly. com/nightlife]. We have some pretty cool stuff lined up.” dusk’s house dJs — dJ sat-one on Tuesdays and saturdays, and dJ royale on Friday nights — are both longtime veterans of the Philadelphia nightclub scene. “When we first opened we were sort of Los angeles-centric and we were bringing in a lot of guys from new York, but we’re in our third year of operation now have been watching to see what works,” says Friel. “Philadelphia, as far as the dJ music scene goes, is one of the most respected cities in the country. it’s a great town and a big feeder market for us.” sold out nearly every Friday and saturday night, dusk’s bottle-service tables line the fringe of the club’s dance floor, unlike other clubs where bottle service is a segregated component. “When you have a table, you want to have a table surrounded by the energy of the club, not in some section that can seem sort of elitist and, after a while, not much fun,” says Friel. “That’s why people like coming to dusk. That’s how we’re designed.” For more, see n

ith editor Jeff Schwachter’s kind permission — and your indulgence — i’d like to stray from my usual celebrity-driven content this week and get personal (although i’ll probably drop a bold-face name or two in here, just like i did with Jeff’s). this column is about the end of a relationship. Last week, i ended a committed relationship that had lasted for eight years, almost nine, really. We really loved one another — or so i thought — and i always believed we were in it to win it. You know, forever and ever, till death do us part, that kind of stuff. But then along comes an eye-opening moment, something that makes you sit up and take a mental inventory. And you realize that maybe you’ve been blind to this all along, because you simply didn’t want to accept the fact that it was happening, and it was happening right under your nose. that was the situation i faced last week. hindsight being what it is, i look back now and realize the telephone in my brain had been ringing for a long time, but i wasn’t answering the call and mentally kept kicking it into voice mail. But this time when it rang, i answered. And then i took the action that was a long time coming. Last week, after being together for almost nine years, we finally broke up. i am no longer one with my Blackberry. rather than play the field, though, i jumped right into a new relationship. i know, i know, i probably should have played the field, looked around, examined my options, played hard-to-get. But i was afraid of being lonely and out of touch, so i jumped right back into the pool. i was only single for as long as it took the nice young salesman at the Apple store to use his iPhone to deactivate my Blackberry and breath electronic life into my sleek, black iPhone 4s. (i’m not sure what the “s” stands for, but it’s probably for siri; more about her in a moment.) i guess i knew this moment had been coming for a while. i’ve got some show-biz pals who had been encouraging me to do it for a while. seems as though the iPhone is the smart phone of choice for the celeb set. three years ago, teller (from Penn and teller), showed me his new iPhone while we were at Bally’s waiting to tape my television show. teller is the one who never speaks on stage, but offstage, he’s a verbal fountain. he told me there was no magic in the iPhone and that i needed to get with the program and get one. then earlier this year, Larry King whipped out his new iPhone as we were getting ready to tape the tV show. Larry’s 78, but he’s a real Like us:

tech geek. “Got one of these?” he barked. “it’s brand new.” “No, i’ve got one of these,” i replied as i whipped out my Blackberry. “it’s two years old.” “You’ve gotta get one of these,” Larry said. “this thing is incredible.” But still i resisted. even after Judy, my significant other, got an iPhone two years ago, i couldn’t be worn down. i loved the e-mail features on the Blackberry. But i was never satisfied with the phone’s ability to access the internet. it took forever to load Web sites, and some sites just didn’t support the riM technology. And i found myself in situations where i really needed to check something on the Web and couldn’t get to the site i needed. i began to grow frustrated. But each time i’d think about breaking up, i’d try to type on Judy’s iPhone to see if i could adapt. i was pretty sure i couldn’t make the switch. see, after eight years, i was blazingly fast on the Blackberry keyboard; the iPhone touch screen was just too sensitive for my fingers. But when Apple introduced siri, i began to think it was time to make a move. siri, for those of you who have been taking a long nap, is the digital assistant who lives in each iPhone 4s. Ask siri a question, and she’ll give you an accurate answer in seconds. if she doesn’t have the answer, she’ll make one up, and it’s usually very funny. (i asked her what the meaning of life is, and she said she found it “strange that you would ask this question of an inanimate object”). My first day with the new phone was psychologically traumatic. it’s so sensitive — and so different from the Blackberry — that i wanted to throw it off the Pier (shops at Caesars) the moment i left the Apple store last thursday. But now that we’ve been together for four days, i’m beginning to understand the phone. More importantly, it’s beginning to understand me. i just asked siri if she thought we could make it. she must intuitively know i cover show-biz, so she paraphrased Bogie at the end of Casablanca, “spatzy, i think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” n

ometimes you have to acknowledge that while records may be made to be broken, that doesn’t make it easy to break them. and when you’re talking about casino poker attendance records, is it really all that important to break them anyway? Well, probably, but again, it isn’t easy and numbers can be deceiving. all this relates to the World series of Poker circuit events going on at harrah’s Resort this week. the events began last thursday, Dec. 1, and trust us, no attendance records were set. the opening tournament, a $300 + $45 No Limit tournament drew 704 players. Now that’s hardly a small turnout and did put up a nice prize pool of more than $200,000, but at last year’s harrah’s opening event, 1,250 players turned out, setting a record for a poker tournament at the casino. that’s a 554-player fall off. so the WsoP folks had to be wondering: What happened? the obvious culprit is that the opening event this year started on a thursday. in 2010, the opening event was on a saturday. that seems to have split the opening crowds as event 2 of the circuit events, another $300 + $45 event, with a double play re-entry (meaning two day ones, Friday and saturday. any one busting out Friday could re-buy saturday) drew 888 players. Last year’s second event at the circuit drew 343 players. so even with the re-buy, add those numbers up and you get back most of your 550 player fall-off. Compared to other stops on the WsoP circuit so far this year, save one, these numbers are actually pretty impressive. the opening tournament for last month’s circuit stop at harvey’s Lake tahoe, for example, drew only 260 players. the first weekend event drew 347. that’s pretty much par for the course on the other circuit events so far this year and clearly, atlantic City still has a lot of punch on the tour. But the leading stop of the circuit events has left even atlantic City in the dust. the third event on the circuit calendar, played in october at the hammond horseshoe in hammond, ind., just outside of Chicago, drew 3,001 players for its opener. and that’s pretty much unbelievable. even the Borgata open in september, which is a record setter for the competing World Poker tour, has never come near that Like us:

number of players for a tournament. and the hammond event drew strong crowds throughout. For the moment, atlantic City will just have to live with the fact that they’re No. 2 on the WsoP circuit. Well, it’s better than last. as for the circuit, here’s some results from the first two events. the winner of the opening tournament was Richard smith of Warrenton, va., who has apparently taken down his first major cash. the 22-year-old wins $41,995. and he got a little lucky in defeating runner up John Johnston in heads-up play when his a-6 topped Johnston’s opponent’s a-J on the final hand. a six on the turn gave smith a pair of sixes and the title. Johnston wins $25,987. the second event of the circuit had a $258,408 prize pool. the winner was Jeffrey Gurfinkel of hallendale Beach, Fla., who takes homes $50,446. Gurfinkel is originally from Brooklyn and has only ever cashed at Borgata events in the past. his biggest cash, however, now comes at harrah’s, where he reportedly had a major chip lead throughout the final table and was never seriously challenged for the win. Coming up, the three-day championship tournament for the circuit event is scheduled for saturday (Dec. 10). the $1,500 + $100 event is also a double play re-entry, but the two opening sessions are both on saturday. one starts at 11am and the second at 7pm. of course, the Borgata isn’t sitting by idly during all this and has also scheduled a busy weekend of tournament action against the WsoP Circuit event. on saturday (Dec. 10) the Borgata offers its $100,000 guaranteed saturday series. the $350 + $50 event starts players with 15K in chips. on sunday (Dec. 11) the Borgata offers a $300,000 guaranteed, $1,500 + $150 Deepstack Double Play tournament that runs until Wednesday, Dec. 14. so the richest tournament of the weekend will actually be at the Borgata. i’ve often called this counter-programming, but the casino actually runs these two tournaments every month they don’t have a major poker open. still, they could have waited a weekend. Whatever, it’s just more action for grinders. n

HE INAUGURAL ATLANTIC CITY TubaChristmas concert — an arrangement of holidays songs performed by various lower-brass musicians from the tristate area — will be blowing into Starbucks Plaza at Tanger Outlets – The Walk on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 18. “This event is a way to inspire younger musicians as well as create a network of low-brass musicians throughout the tri-state area,” says event coordinator Craig Martin. “TubaChristmas concerts can vary in size from as few as four players to as large as several hundred. Any musician who plays an instrument in the tuba family is invited to play.” Registration will be 10am, rehearsal starts at noon behind the T-Mobile store at The Walk, and the show starts at 2pm. Atlantic City’s TubaChristmas will be under the direction of conductor Keith Hodgson. The event is free and the public is welcome. In addition to the free music, attendees will also enjoy complimentary hot chocolate and gift bags from Tanger Outlets. Parking is free at two locations — on Baltic Avenue between Ohio and Indiana avenues, and at Fairmount and Mississippi avenues, courtesy of the Atlantic City Tourism District. Valet parking will also be available. TubaChristmas concerts started in 1974 when Harvey G. Phillips, a professor emeritus of the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, dedicated the first event in honor of his teacher, William J. Bell. — Ray Schweibert

The Bistro at Caroline’s by the Bay

Dedicated to Freshness

Where: 450 bay Ave., Somers Point Phone: 601-2212 Winter Hours: mon.-Thurs. 3-10pm, Fri., Sat. & Sun. 11am-11pm

Somers Point’s Bistro by the Bay at Caroline’s delivers hand-crafted Italian fare By Frank Gabriel Overcoming adversity is understood to be an essential survival skill in the restaurant industry. Cooks and waitresses regularly fail to show. Equipment goes on the fritz, usually at the worst possible moment. Purveyors often fail to deliver on their promises. But when a restaurant loses a key member of its management team, permanently, the loss can become difficult to withstand. Caroline’s by the Bay in Somers Point suffered such a tragedy a little over a year ago when well-respected GM Dave Tyson, a veteran of the nearby Anchorage Tavern as well, passed away in August 2010. We’re happy to report that his longtime enterprise didn’t fold, and now stands firmly rooted in the process of reinventing itself. Much of the credit for that should go to Bruno Berardi. The fortysomething-year-old native of Northeast Philly, recruited by cousin Fausto — operator of Strathmere’s La Fontana Del Mare — stepped firmly into the breach and has moved the restaurant’s direction towards hand-crafted casual Italian and ItalianAmerican fare. With a degree in hospitality management from Penn State and decades of industry experience, Berardi immediately focused on a formula he knew intimately. Saying that with Tyson’s passing, “The identity of Caroline’s was gone” and that it’s been a challenge, Berardi chose to reposition the facility. Already possess-

Fresh Italian in Somers Point ing some of the most panoramic, relaxing shoreline views regionally, Caroline’s new regime’s intent is: “We want to be able to offer people a great product at a reasonable price and not be that ‘destination only’ restaurant.” Which has all lead to a new appellation as well, the Bistro at Caroline’s by the Bay. He further admits that it will likely “take three to five years to make my own name.” Which means stuff like brick oven pizza, lasagna, crab cakes and a house specialty, gnocchi. Berardi describes those potato-based pasta pillows as a tricky item to properly create, saying they “have to be malleable [and] hold the integrity of the dough.”

But his nascent concept also translates as scratch cooking at every level of the business. He even goes so far as to proudly declare: “None of my soups come in a can” and “I never use my freezer, except maybe for frozen French fries.” Calling the revised menu “simple stuff, peasant,” he describes it as “my food, my creations, my passions, not someone else’s.” He’s also quick to praise head chef Tony Ditri — surprise, surprise — another cousin, for delivering consistent, quality cuisine. Which all starts with superior products. Like imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes, exclusively utilized to formulate the house’s “mother” red sauce from which

all other varieties are derived. Or the proprietary potato rolls on which their “Bistro Classic” sandwiches are mounted. Baked fresh, in-house daily, they provide a unique twist with nutty, mildly sweet flavor when toasted. A dozen familiar combinations and flavors, like Caprese, meatballs, sausage and peppers and eggplant parm are included on that portion of the bill of fare. Not surprisingly, Berardi also particularly favors the eponymous cheesesteak Bruno, an eight-ounce portion of griddled sirloin blended with Italian long hot peppers and sharp provolone on rolls from Philly’s Amoroso bakery. Entrees, as you might imagine, typically involve pastas. Like the aforementioned gnocchi, served either in a gorgonzola cream sauce or Sorrentino, adorned by red sauce, basil and mozzarella. Another indication of Berardi’s commitment to freshness is his veal purveyor, nearby Ventnor’s well-respected Delaware Food Market. He refers to their fresh-cut meats as being “of the highest quality.” Ask him for pizza recommendations and he’ll immediately mention a pair of white pies. First, a spinach, shrimp and crabmeat version, referred to as “The one we’re famous for!” Also, Philly cheesesteak with a combo of American and mozzarella cheeses, along with sautéed onions and plenty of lean beef. n

A lot of hard work and creative planning has been put into making Pic-a-Lilli Pub an improved, fun and exciting environment. renovations continue under a new management that has taken on the pub with a mission to revitalize and refresh the place, located just off the boardwalk on S. Tennessee Avenue. With two happy hours daily, a new 55-inch highdefinition TV, a bigger and better menu and a huge array of adult beverages, this little gem welcomes anyone out for some fun. Still famous for its buffalo wings, rolls and crab bisque, Pic-a-Lilli Pub’s chef has been faithfully honing a reputation among visitors and locals alike for delicious food and a festive atmosphere. Now, as the restaurant revitalizes with an emphasis on a fresh new look, Pic-a-Lilli Pub hosts karaoke,

10 Reasons to be Optimistic about Atlantic City in 2012 I By Michael Pritchard

n this economic climate, optimism about Atlantic city’s future can swing as wildly as the stock market does on each little bit of economic news. the city still faces growing outof-state competition, gaming revenues are still down and the country’s persistent economic problems are keeping any tourists destination’s hopes for a rebound low. But at the same time new projects are being built and planned in the city, new attractions are being announced and cRDA’s shepherding of the city’s tourist district may finally be picking up a little steam. After a five-year slump maybe this is the year the city finally turns things around. here are the top 10 reasons we’re bullish on Atlantic city’s 2012.

1: Revel Casino — it hasn’t exactly been a cakewalk for this project, which hit some serious economic stags a couple years ago and still has some of the city’s struggling casinos shaking in their boots, but come may (and possibly

earlier) the city should see the opening of this $2.5 billion project. if there’s anything that’s certain in the casino gambling industry, it’s that new is better and a project like this will pump much needed life into the resort.

2: Hard Rock Casino — the south Boardwalk casino, which hopes to break ground in July, will initially have only about 200 rooms, but could eventually expand to 850 rooms. in the meantime, however, the casino has announced that it plans to build a museum to house and display the hard Rock brand’s impressive collection of rock memorabilia. 3: Golden Nugget — the Golden nugget has slowly been transforming the former trump marina property since taking over the property last spring. it’s a $150 million refurbishing and rebranding of the casino and soon, the Golden nugget name will even be

stood on the Atlantic city Boardwalk and pledged the state’s support for revitalizing the city and creating a state-run tourism District. Well, these things take time, but the zone is created, the casino Reinvestment Development Authority is in charge and in February the cRDA will release a master plan outlining the goals for the new district.

7: Atlantic City Alliance — the new non-profit group, with a $30 million budget, is tasked with rebranding and developing a new marketing strategy for the city.

8: Tanger Outlets/The Walk — Plans continue to expand the city’s central shopping district, now under the control of tanger Factory outlet centers. Phase iV of the Walk calls for a focus on nightlife including restaurants, live entertainment, bars and nightclubs. Also, Due for a facelift in 2012 a new parking garage serving the 6: They’re Still Walk and the convention center is Open — Rumors of the part of the city’s skyline. scheduled to open early next year. imminent demise of several resort casinos have been ram4: Steel Pier — now under pant for the last few years, but 9: Garden Pier — the home the control of the catanoso fam- the city hasn’t seen a casino of the under-appreciated city arts ily and partner Paul steelman, actually close its doors since the and historical museum will get a the city’s only amusement pier is sands closed in 2006, before the $1 million reconstruction from slated for a major upgrade. the economy tanked. the former Revel and the cRDA will demolish owners say we can expect seven or Atlantic city hilton, now Ach, the pier’s dilapidated back end. eight new attractions by summer just announced a plan to keep and eventually the steel Pier will its doors open and pump about 10: Some Numbers are become a year-round facility. $25 million into the property.

Soul Stirrer ho stole the soul?” isn’t just a lyric, which emanated from Public enemy’s Flavor Flav. It’s a question that was posed to the late James Brown towards the end of the 1990s. “I don’t know what happened to soul,” the iconic Brown said. “It isn’t like it once was. there aren’t as many soul singers around. I got the soul but not many others have it.” Brown is no longer around, but there are still some soul singers on the circuit. Few are on the level of Anthony hamilton, who will perform saturday, Dec. 10. at the house of Blues at showboat in Atlantic City. hamilton is an old-school vocalist who delivers poignant songs in a passionate manner. he has his own style, yes, but the North Carolina native admits that Philly soul had a big impact on him. three years ago he was in Philadelphia for a tribute to the legendary Bill Withers. “I always looked up to Bill Withers,” hamilton tells Atlantic City Weekly. “how can you not look up to him? What a voice, what great songs. on top of that, he was so nice to me. We had a great time together. I always wanted to have the kind of impact he had.” hamilton, 40, is doing just fine. his 2003 album, Comin’ From Where I’m From, went platinum courtesy of the title track and the

single “Charlene.” hamilton’s discs became go-to albums for neo-soul fans. the talented singer and songwriter, who has earned a Grammy nomination, says he still has quite a few albums in him. “I want to keep creating,” hamilton says. “I think I’ve only scratched the surface. But I have put out some work that I’m proud of.” hamilton has been on the move as an artist since the early ’90s when he signed with Andre harrell’s uptown Records. the label was the epicenter of the new jack swing sound. Jodeci and Mary J. Blige called uptown home. “I was really excited to be part of that,” hamilton says. “I was young and it appeared that I was going places right off of the bat. I was pretty pleased and excited. things were looking awfully good for me as I was working on my album.” that first album was finished by 1995. however, the company went out of business just before the album was going to come out. “that’s the way it goes some-

Anthony Hamilton keeps on keepin’ on, ‘Back to Love’ to drop just after Atlantic City appearance.

‘You can’t give up when something goes wrong. You have to go right back at it.’

times,” hamilton says. “that kind of stuff is disappointing. But it happens and you just have to get ready to bounce back. You can’t give up when something goes wrong. You have to go right back at it.” hamilton did get right back on the horse. In 1996, he signed with MCA and released that debut disc, dubbed XTC. only one song, “Nobody else,” was released as a single. It hit the charts, but the disc could have done so much more. “that was another learning experience,” hamilton says. “I was still young. the album didn’t go through the roof, but I got some notice.”

decade. he impressed with the laidback “the truth” and the spiritual “Pass Me over.” “I just tried to keep [the momentum] going,” hamilton says. “I did what I wanted to do and I think that album worked out well for me.” The Point of It All, hamilton’s hook-laden 2008 release, features some of his lightest, funkiest material. the disc also includes some of hamilton’s sweetest and most romantic songs. “I think I grew quite a bit with that album,” hamilton says. “I did what I had to do when it came to expressing myself.” And then there is hamilton’s forthcoming album, Back To Love, which will drop next week (Dec. 13). the album features another batch of romance and soul from the electric entertainer. hamilton is always taking serious steps forward, album to album. “I just want to be the best that I can possibly be,” hamilton says. “I want to make that impact. I don’t want to leave anything on the table. I know what I’m capable of. If I work at it, I know I can achieve what I need to achieve.” n

It was apparent that hamilton was on his way. It was just a matter of time, as XTC is such a solid album, top to bottom. soul fans couldn’t help but notice the vocal similarity between hamilton and Philly soul star teddy Pendergrass. It was obvious to the fans in the know, that hamilton had the goods, an upper echelon voice and loads of charisma. hamilton made ends meet over the next few years as a backup singer (2Pac, eve) and songwriter. But he finally hit paydirt with the extraordinary Comin’ From Where I’m From. “I was just very thankful things went so well for me,” hamilton says. “those times when things weren’t going so well makes you appreciate the good times that much more.” the good times continued with 2005’s Ain’t Nobody Worryin. hamilton penned “Where Did It All Go Wrong,” which is arguably the best break-up song of the last

DVD/Blu-ray gifts for the movie buffs on your list By Lori Hoffman


s a movie junkie, i enjoy giving and receiving movie gifts at the holidays so i’m always on the lookout for movies that are either finally being released on DvD format, or classics that are available in Bluray for the first time. Here are some titles and collections that have caught my attention as excellent movie gifts.



WArd vS froCh dECEMbEr 17

‘Ace in the Hole’

This is one of my favorite movies you’ve likely never heard of, despite the fact it stars kirk Douglas and was directed by Billy Wilder. Douglas is a former top newspaper man from new york now stuck in the middle of nowhere (new mexico), who stumbles upon a mine cave-in and sees his coverage as a ticket back to the big time. one of the most cynical movies ever made. my favorite line: “i’ve met a lot of hard-boiled eggs in my time, but you — you’re 20 minutes!” This two-disc set includes a 1980 interview with Wilder and a 1984 interview with Douglas. $23.76.

‘Citizen Kane 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition’

not only does this Blu-ray of the orson Welles classic contain a newly remastered high-def presentation of the film and a slew of extras, but it comes with a 1941 souvenir program reproduction, a 48-page book with photos, 10 production memos and lobby card reproductions. $40.

‘Crazy Stupid Love’

i’m not a big steve Carell fan, but i thought this was one of the best romantic comedy/dramas in a decade, directed by glenn Ficarra. Both hilarious and bittersweet, with a fabulous cast top-lined by Carell, Ryan gosling, julianne moore and emma stone, it was a disappointment at the box office, perhaps because romantic comedies have been so bad lately. $19.99 Blu-ray, $14.99 DvD.

Before you check out David Fincher’s much anticipated remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, you can enjoy the entire trilogy of films based on the stieg Larsson books in this newly released extended edition that features two hours of additional footage not seen in the us. all three features are available with the original swedish language with english subtitles or an english language version. $46.99.

‘Harry Potter: The Complete 8 Film Collection’

Watch your favorite wizards grow up over a decade as they battle evil and defend Hogwarts. The Blu-ray format is $79.99 from amazon while the standard DvD set is $48.99. Like us:
