Cabaret Makes for Powerful Theatre By Nicholas Connell

Bravo to Arizona Broadway Theatre for stepping up to deliver a powerful production of Cabaret as their opening show this season. This exceptional performance of the Tony Award Winning production from 1967 is a must see for Valley theatre audiences. Directing and working the halls of the Kit Kat Club of 1930’s Berlin is Kiel Klaphake. Kiel’s interpretation of the spoils of Berlin during the rise of Hitler and the Nazi party are very sharp and definitive even now. With the current political malaise of war, money, and fear circling the globe, his keen perceptions of John Van Druten’s play is indeed striking and powerful. Anyone who knows Cabaret will tell you that you’ve got to have some diamonds in your pockets to make this show sparkle. And diamonds were everywhere in this cast for Klaphake to polish. Led by our emcee Kurtis Overby, the Kit Kat Club Cabaret flowed with the finest satire and movements that money could buy; in Berlin of course! Kurtis walked our hearts through the underbelly of disintegrating

German interwar society in the choice songs “Willkommen�, “Welcome to Berlin�, “Two Ladies�, and “The Money Song�. His melancholy touch during the radio tune “Tommorow Belongs To Me� and “I Dont Care Much� struck a visual and emotional chord anyone could understand and feel. His performance is the crown jewel! Leading the Kit Kat Club girls through their nightly escapades is Cassandra Klaphake as Sally Bowles, our tragic heroine. Cassandra’s presence is touching and romantic as she bears the soul of a scared singer trying to survive the crushing setbacks of love and loss. Her radiant voice shined in “Don’t Tell Momma�,�Perfectly Marvelous�, and the signature hit song “Cabaret�.

Also heartbreaking and immensely moving is the sub-plot relationship between the German landlord Fraulein Schneider, played by the talented Athena Hunting, and the Jewish fruit vendor Herr Schultz, played expertly by James Page. Athena’s portrayal of Schneider in “So What� and “What Would You Do?� were excellent. But her duets with

Herr Schultz in “It Couldn’t Please Me More� and “Married� were the sweetest all night.

There are more fine performances to remember during this two hour production, including Jason Paul as Cliff, Sally Bowles’s lover. Jason is vulnerable and naive in “Perfectly Marvelous� and “Don’t Go�. He’s even more courageous standing up to Nazi Ernst Ludwig, played by the convincing Andy Meyers. Also showing a touch of class is Jill Tieskoetter as Fraulein Kost. Her revealing interpretation of the Nazi theme song “Tommorow Belongs To Me� with Ernst and guests was chilling, to say the least. Our story would not have been a hit without the colorful and vibrant antics of the Kit Kat Girls and Boys. Overby’s choreography gave them life and humor all night, while the two-tier themed stage design of Renae Selmeyer made the stark realities of Berlin’s nightlife completely accessible. Finally, Jeff Kennedy and his band

made the music a treat all night while occupying the shadows of the Kit Kat Club. This writer will be back for an encore performance, and highly recommends you get a friend and catch Cabaret. It’s been twenty years since the last revival of this production, and the story’s wisdom and teaching on the human condition is as timely now as it was in ‘67. And don’t miss the German Chocolate Cake for dessert, too! Cabaret plays through November 16th. For tickets, call (623) 776-8400, or go to

Ah, Italia! Enchanted April is a Marvelous Show a marvelous and funny production of Matthew Barber’s romantic comedy Enchanted April at the Herberger Theatre. The play, which opened on Broadway in 2003 to rave reviews, won the John Gassner Award for Best New American Play as well as a Tony Award nomination for Best Play. Director Timothy Near presents the story that revolves around a quartet of women who venture to Italy to escape the oppressive winter of London and the disillusionment of marriage and society in 1922 England. Act one unfolds as a rainy and depressing London finds our two new best friends, Lotty Wilson, played by the lovely and hyper Finnerty Steeves, and Rose Arnott, gracefully and wisely played by Kathryn Meisle, plotting to escape their gloomy London marriages and travel to the romantic paradise of Italy. The non-stop energy of the two performers makes for a wild and witty ride in this stormy London.


By Nicholas Connell Arizona Theatre Company opened their new season last weekend with October 16th - October 22nd, 2008

Add a mix of two more leading ladies played by the vogue, beautiful, and sensuous Monette Magrath as Lady Caroline Bramble, and the stern and self righteous Mrs. Graves, played to the hilt

by Patricia Kilarriff, and you have the most unlikely set of roommates to ever set foot in Italy. The second act is transformed with a bright and impressive set designed by Kent Dorsey and company. Since “God is a man�, as Mrs. Graves proclaims, he must have loved Italy! But this is a play about love and loss; men and women; David and Goliath, wrapped around a time of great change with surprises that kept the laughs coming all night. Leading our balancing act of romance and intrigue are Tony Roach as Antony Wilding, the suave landlord who is just ripe for the taking; Matthew Flloyd Miller is vulnerable and excitable as Lotty’s husband, Mellersh Wilton. Not to be forgotten is the intriguing and sly Frederick Arnott, Rose’s husband, played flawlessly by Al Espinoza. There is a wealth of truth and love running through this Matthew Barber play. Thank God it arrived in Phoenix for ATC! Escape to Enchanted April through October 26th. For tickets, call (602) 2566995, or go to

The movie role that jump-started Harrison Ford’s acting career is Han Solo in the Star Wars movies. Veteran actor Christopher Walken almost won the role! October 16th - October 22nd, 2008

A reality television host and her cameraman get locked inside a Los Angeles apartment building after bloodthirsty residents begin attacking one another in Sony Pictures’ Quarantine (now in theatres). If seeing the fright on screen is not enough, hop in the car and head to Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park.

the fright is right there in front of you. Within seconds, bodies hit the floor and residents come out to attack. You are then rushed down hallways and through rooms where evil lurks around every corner.

Every year, the popular Southern California family amusement park transforms into the largest, scariest, and most respected Halloween event in the county. Now in its 36th year, the 2008 Halloween Haunt features thirteen haunted mazes/attractions, seven live stage shows, and three scare zones.

You are brought into the lobby of the apartment building seen in the film. A staircase leads to the floor above, but

What Just Happened? By guest movie critic David Ramsey There have been many movies about the inside workings of Hollywood, but most of them are too inside for the general public. What Just Happened? directed by Barry Levinson is the rare insider movie that everyone will enjoy. Based on the book of the same name, the film was written by Art Linson, a successful Hollywood producer who was responsible for such films as Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Heat, and Fight Club. Ben (Robert De Niro) is a successful director whose last film failed and is now faced with personal and professional problems that come to a head in a two week period. His personal life is complicated with two exwives, a teenage daughter, and money problems. He needs his next two films to work but his big name action star shows up out of shape and sporting a Grizzly Adams beard, causing the studio to threaten to cancel the movie and sue him. Meanwhile, the art film he has entered in the Cannes Film Festival has a disastrous preview

screening, forcing the studio president to demand changes. There is a lot going on as Ben struggles to maintain his powerful position, make everyone happy, and find happiness. Not since The Player has a movie about Hollywood been so enjoyable. Starring Robert De Niro, Bruce Willis, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro, Kristen Stewart, Catherine Keener, and Sean Penn. Directed by Barry Levinson; written by Art Linson, based on his book; Rated R for language, some violent images, sexual content and some drug material. David Ramsey is the President and co-founder of the Phoenix Film Critics Society and a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association. Listen for his DVD and movie reviews just after 4:30pm. Tuesday and Friday on KMLE (107.9 FM) with “Big Shoe” Stu Evans, watch for him on the CBS 5 Morning News every Friday around 5:50am and on ABC-15’s Sonoran Living Live every other Friday.

The Quarantine maze is one of the best movie tie-ins the park has done in years. Halloween Haunt takes place every Wednesday-Sunday in October. For more information, visit

The Secret Life of Bees

The thought of The same thing that’ll make you laugh, will make you cry is my sentiment as a few tears rolled down my face during the screening of The Secret Life of Bees. As we in the press left, there were a few teary eyes of both sadness and joy. Based on Sue Monk Kidd’s awardwinning best-seller, writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood captures the period in history that a lot of us “boomers” vividly remember. It’s the summer of 1964, just after President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law. 14 year-old Lily Owens (Dakota Fanning) has a tough life. She has to constantly endure mental and physical abuse from her cold hearted, widower father (Paul Bettany). The housekeeper/nanny, Rosaleen (Jennifer Hudson, Dreamgirls), decides that she is going to register and vote, now that it’s the law. But Rosaleen is assaulted by some of the townspeople. Haunted by guilty memories of her mother, who died in a tragic accident when she was only four, Lily gathers the few mementos she has saved, including a picture of her mother, as she and Rosaleen start their journey to Tiburon, SC, and the 28-acre farm of the cultured, honey-making Boatwright sisters. It’s the only clue she has of her mother’s past. When Lily and Rosaleen arrive, they find a “Pepto-Bismol” pink house and the sisters dealing with issues of their own. The oldest sister and the anchor is August Boatwright (Queen Latifah). She puts Lily at ease with the statement, “Liftin’ someone’s heart, now that matters. The whole problem with people is they know what matters, but they don’t choose it.” There’s the staunchly independent

cellist, June (Alicia Keys), the vulnerable, simple-minded May (Sophie Okonedo), and August’s earnest godson (Tristan Wilds), who has dreams of becoming a lawyer. Prince-Blythewood has aptly guided the cast through an emotional delivery of how we all have personal issues and at the same time, how those issues make us human. Fanning carries the movie with the subtle emotion and spontaneity of an actor far beyond her years. In an interview with Dakota when she was 11 years old, I asked if any of her friends were actors. She answered, laughing, “None of them”. In The Secret Life of Bees, she delivers a character whose quest for family, hope, and love tugs at your heart as it rises above the physicality that might separate us as human beings.

Sean Anders Invites You on a Sex Drive

By Randy Montgomery

In Sex Drive, Ian Lafferty (Josh Zuckerman) spends his days in a “Señor Donut” costume at the mall bring harassed by pre-teens and forced to sell guacamole-flavored bakery treats. He spends his evenings online chatting with “Ms. Tasty”, a bombshell who would like to meet him in person. Looking to get lucky, he steals his brother’s prized Pontiac GTO, and embarks on a crosscountry road trip with buddy Lance (Clark Duke) and gal-pal Felicia (Amanda Crew). Sex Drive is a crazy sex-comedy, so you know there are going to be a few bumps in the road! Writer/Director Sean Anders was on a much calmer road trip on his way to Phoenix when he spoke by phone with AZ Weekly about his new film. Anders is no stranger to the Valley- having lived here for several years- where he made his first feature Never Been Thawed in Mesa. NBT (as fans call it) is about a wacky bunch of frozen food enthusiasts. After screening at numerous festivals, Harkins Valley Art in Tempe hosted the official theatrical premiere. Loosely based on a novel, Anders and his co-writer were approached to work on the screenplay after being handed the book. “We really liked the premise,” he said. “It reminded us of a classic 80’s teen comedy, but we wanted to do something very different from what was in the book. The producer Bob Levy liked what we wanted to do, so we put a pitch together, took it around town and ultimately sold it to Summit Entertainment.”


Hollywood… we had a lot of that. The studio was really excited about the script. They pretty much gave us the green light off the first draft. We had the studio on our side from the beginning. They let us make our movie.” What you see on screen is quite different from what is in the book though. “Very little of the book is in the movie, expect the basic premise, the characters, and a couple of plot points,” explained Anders. “The book was aimed at a younger audience, therefore the story was a lot different. It was an original screenplay based on a premise from a book.” When asked how making Sex Drive differed from NBT, Anders responded, “The experience on NBT was invaluable. When we made NBT we were flying by the seat of our pants, we didn’t know what we were doing. We were making everything up as we went along. It was surprising when we were making a real movie, how similar it actually was. We just had to learn the jargon. We were doing a lot of the same things; we just didn’t know what to call it.”

Sex Drive is laugh-out-loud funny from start to finish, and features enough outrageous moments and creative comedy to make it far more entertaining and fast-paced than any Judd Apatow film. Anders proves the ability to not only write a unique and humorous script, but the ability to direct as well. We will be seeing much more of his talents coming to the big screen in the future. This outlandish road trip proved to easily be the funniest film of 2008 so far!

Anders and his team were given free reign from that point on: “In terms of creative control, in the grand scheme of

About Señor Donut By Randy Montgomery

Ian, the main character in Sex Drive, works at a mall donut shop and must wear a ridiculous “Señor Donut” costume which becomes a centerpiece of the film on many occasions, and the highlight of the theatrical trailer. “The donut costume was mentioned in the book, but didn’t really play a role,” says Director Sean Anders. “We thought we should do something with the donut costume, because it was a really funny idea.” Who created the look of the costume? “There were a lot of hands involved in that,” he says. “It was a team effort!” “If Todd McFarlane puts together a Señor Donut, I could die a happy man,” laughs Anders when asked if there would ever be a chance that his iconic character would ever hit store shelves.

Chandler- This year the annual Kokopelli Krush will be bigger and better than ever! It all started as a celebration of the grape harvest, but now it’s a Foot Stomping Party where teams of two compete to see how much grape juice they can make in just two minutes - with their feet (Yes, they’ll be jumping barefoot into a barrel of grapes and squishing them between their toes)!

Culinary Legends Gather for Eats³ Scottsdale- A new and distinctive experience is on this fall’s social calendar in Scottsdale, and it is one that will dazzle the world of food and wine. Three days and nights of the most enticing wines, epicurean adventures, and celebrity chef sightings will take place October 23rd-25th on Scottsdale’s SouthBridge. Eats ³ is the culinary brainchild of Savor Scottsdale, a consortium of the city’s finest independent one-of-akind restaurants.  Sponsored by the prestigious Food & Wine Magazine and major distributor Southern Wine & Spirits, Eats³ boasts an ambitious schedule of events to delight throngs of the most devoted foodies and wine aficionados.    The ‘S to the third power’ tonguetwister refers to the weekend’s food, wine, and spirits focus.   “Sizzle, Sip, Swizzle; it’s certainly a mouthful, but that’s the idea,” says Scottsdale restaurateur and Savor Scottsdale board member Peter Kasperski. Fellow board member James Porter comments, “It’s a party for the palate. We’re giving the world’s foodies a taste of ‘big city’ dining, Scottsdale style.”   Festivities begin Thursday evening, with the ‘Food as Art’ CocktailInfused ArtWalk from 7pm – 9pm. The art will glow and so will the palates of art lovers as they enjoy signature cocktail creations by master mixologists from across the country.  Select galleries also will

October 16th - October 22nd, 2008


host exclusive ‘Food as Art’ InGallery Dinners beginning at 8pm. Diners will experience the thrill of tasting five courses of culinary art in an unprecedented, intimate gallery setting.  Each gallery will have its own personal Savor Scottsdale chef, a featured winemaker, and a very special visit by international culinary legend Jacques Pépin!    As Thursday evening’s events wind down, the festival milieu heats up with the official Eats³ Kickoff Party on the Bridge, connecting the Scottsdale Waterfront and SouthBridge from 9pm to midnight.  SouthBridge will be transformed into a chic, open-air lounge where guests sip cocktails and wine while DJs and VJs spin music and scenes under the stars as the weekend revs up in smooth Scottsdale style! Friday is awash in alluring wines as the day begins with private Library Wine Tastings, followed by a series of Savor Scottsdale Wine Lunches from noon to 2pm. The afternoon is rounded off with yet more private Library Wine Tastings.  Friday night lights up with the Charbay National Iron Bar Chef Competition, from 7pm– 10pm.  Hosted by worldrenowned master mixologist Tony Abou-Ganim, six of the USA ’s top bartenders will compete for the “Iron Bar Chef” title.   The Arizona Grand Tasting commences at SouthBridge on Saturday from noon to 4pm, with

more than 40 Arizona restaurants and 200 wineries pairing up in a magnificent culinary and wine tasting experience for all. Guests will be enthralled with demonstrations by such culinary masters as the legendary Jacques Pépin, Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard, Wholesome Wave’s Michel Nischan, Food Network’s Bruce Seidel, and Emmy Award-winning Ming Tsai. The afternoon continues with yet more wine tastings, seminars, discussions, and a lively Battle of the Sexes between sommeliers!  See who really knows the palate when “he said, she said” takes center stage!     To cap off the entire Eats ³ gastronomic extravaganza is Saturday night’s Signature Scottsdale BBQ & Bubbles Finale from 7pm to 10pm, when the sun goes down and the red carpet rolls out on the Bridge at SouthBridge.  This elegant, champagne-infused barbecue is sure to provide effervescent thrills.  Competition will heat-up as teams of celebrity & local chefs strive to create the signature sizzle for Scottsdale’s grandest cookout.  Silent auctions throughout the evening consist of luxury vacation packages, chef surprises, wine rarities and culinary treasures.

Barcelona Supper Club recently hosted a casting call for Hell’s Kitchen, the popular FOX reality show that brings a dozen or so talented culinary folks from around the country to compete for the grand prize of a high-paying job in Chef Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen. Ramsay is the prototypical, diabolical kitchen nightmare for relatively untested cooks trying to prove themselves, reserving the pleasure of assaulting ineptitude and failure with profane insults and screaming attacks on the subjects’ self-esteem. The premise of the show focuses on which of the contestants can withstand the pressure of an overwhelmingly demanding authority figure while producing superior culinary creations, but this difficult burden of performing under high strain is not limited exclusively to Hell’s Kitchen contestants. The show’s Casting Producer, Chase Landau, and Assistant Casting Producer, Molly Fitzpatrick, know what it’s like to have to deliver the goods in the midst of chaos. As the 100-plus hopefuls filed in to Barcelona last week, it was up to Landau and Fitzpatrick to organize them into manageable groupings so that the filtering process could begin. The LA-based duo have worked closely together for years in their capacities as talent evaluators, and their smiles and easy-going attitudes belie a job that is a constant test of patience, organization, and ‘on the fly’ flexibility. Meet Chase Landau and Molly Fitzpatrick, the calm within the storm: AZ Weekly: Why is being a Casting Producer so challenging? Chase Landau: First of all, I love my job; I should be clear on that. But in this line of work, you don’t ever really have holidays, the hours are long, and there are so many people to choose from that it becomes difficult to manage sometimes. Molly Fitzpatrick: Yeah, when you’re doing a casting call, there are sometimes thousands of people you’ve never met who are all telling you at the same time why they should be the ones to get on the show. And every show is different, so you have to adjust to that. AZW: Where is the line between someone having a great personality versus just being totally obnoxious? CL: It’s a fine line, for sure. Like Molly said, with each show you have to use a case by case formula for what you’re looking for. People go over the top all the time, but we’ve been doing this for years, so by this point we can spot someone who’s faking it from a mile away.

presented by







For more info or to purchase tickets, visit or call 480.344.5681 today.

AZW: So what do you look for, in general terms? What would contestants do well to remember when they go to a casting call? CL: They have to be comfortable in their own skin, be at least a little outspoken, and have a strong personality. We look for that balance between substance and personality.

Now Serving Lunch and Sunday Brunch!

AZW: How does one become a Casting Producer? MF: People usually start as a PA (production assistant), and that’s the bottom of the barrel, really. That’s when you’re getting coffee and people are yelling at you. I started as a PA, then worked my way up to a casting coordinator, then kept working in different casting crews for different shows. It’s like most jobs; you gotta get your feet wet first, then get as much experience as you can. CL: It’s also important that you have to be good with people. You meet hundreds of people you’ve never met every day, and you need to be able to roll with the punches. If you’re not a people person, forget about getting into casting. AZW: Thanks ladies; it was educational! CL & MF: Thank you! Make sure to log onto to find out all the latest news and schedule for Hell’s Kitchen.

Attention Valley Businesses:

Beastie Boys Rap the Vote

The Boston beat masters are hitting the open road and heading south, then west, across the country to mix up the middleof-the-roaders. The Beastie Boys have announced a trio of shows in swing states to encourage fans and folks in general to populate polls come Election Day. Richmond, Va, St. Paul, MN, and Milwaukee, WI, await the hip hop superiority of Mike D, Ad Rock, MCA, and Mix Master Mike on October 28th, November 1st, and November 2nd, respectively, timed to prime people’s energy on November 4th. The tour is called ‘Get Out and Vote’, and on different nights will feature the talents of Sheryl Crowd, Norah Jones, Jack Johnson, Satogold, Ben Harper, Tenacious D, and Crosby & Nash.

G ‘n R’s Chinese Democracy Set for Atypical Release

Axl Rose and mates are finally putting their decadeawaited album Chinese Democracy on shelves, though according to Billboard, because the band is engaged in an exclusive deal with Best Buy, the November 23rd release date falls on a Sunday instead of the usual Tuesday. Soundscan announces its sales information based on Tuesday release dates, but Best Buy’s sales tracking adheres to a Sunday-Saturday week, thus Guns ‘n Roses’ decision to post its product on the peculiar day.

Black Eyed Peas to Go Interactive after The E.N.D., Fergie,, and Taboo; together the Black Eyed Peas, are currently wrapping up their 5th album, The E.N.D. (Energy Never Dies), and will try to get it on shelves for the holiday season. Will is convinced that 2008 is the last year that physical CDs will be the norm for music distribution, though, so from here on out, it’s all about the online scene. He recently explained that they have incorporated some new software peeps into the group in order to adequately prepare for the future, which will see the CD come full circle into the dinosaur destiny of Beta Max, VHS, and cassette tapes.

Cornell Ready to Calm Confusion

Big beats, less guitar, and a lot more scratching describe the new Chris Cornell album, Scream, produced by and featuring the talents of Timbaland. For Soundgarden and Audioslave fans, it might be a pretty big jolt. Cornell, however, is eager- not anxious- to expose his followers to his new sounds, which he has done a number of times throughout his career. From Soundgarden to Temple of the Dog, from solo albums like Euphoria Morning to his stint as frontman for Audioslave, Cornell has made it a habit throughout his career to reinvent himself. Scream, however, is definitively not rock ‘n roll, so it remains to be seen whether this abrupt style change will be as well-received as earlier, less risky departures from his previous approaches.

October 16th - October 22nd, 2008



Paul van Dyk

You have been quoted as saying that you don’t classify your music as ‘Trance’ (Wikipedia says that, anyway). How do you classify your music? I think you’re referring to an interview I gave in 1994. I’m not denying trance, but so much of my music is combined from all sorts of different styles: house, techno, drum & bass, etc., with quiet, intense moments that don’t fit with stereotypical trance music. Trance so often means endless, stupid sequences that sound the same, and sometimes there is this utterly cheesy, quirky female voice singing. It’s not usually good sounding music, and is often performed with a laptop and no proper sound engineering.


October 16th - October 22nd, 2008

What’s the key to creating effective electronic music? It has to be intense. Electronic music is closer to classical music than popthere is an open space of structure, where emotions are brought out of you because of the energy of the music, not because someone is singing to you a love song and now you’re so sad. It’s a completely different element in electronic music; you let it get into you. That’s why some people are so passionate about it, and why some people don’t understand it; sometimes people don’t want that emotion. Some people are turned off by electronica because they don’t relate to songs where lyrics are deemphasized; they don’t understand the message. What would you say to these folks? Well there is a huge difference between vocal tracks and something I would do.


It really comes down to what you’re looking for. If you are going out to hang out with mates and check out girls, the music isn’t really the reason you’re there. Sure, you might sing along with some of the songs and so forth, but people who go to clubs to hear me play are going because of the music. At the end of the night they’re soaking wet from dancing, and they have felt the momentum that comes from electronic music. It’s the difference between watching something and actually being involved with something.

I was. In that case, I would be a one name, one-hit wonder, and how many people have we seen come and go over the years?

When did you feel that you had ‘made it’ as a DJ? I never had a moment where I felt like I made it. If I ever feel like I’ve made it, I’ll stop making music. It has to be a challenge; a constant progression. Everything that’s developed around me, it grew naturally. I never had a point where I had one big hit and there

Thanks for your time, Paul, and we’ll see you in a couple weeks! Thank you! It’s been some time since I’ve been in Tempe, and I always had a great time there. Come to the show and you will see it shine through!

Who are you working with and listening to these days? I work with some amazing talents; it’s really exciting. One is Jon O’Bir; he’s just a phenomenal DJ. I’m a big fan of Lincoln Park, Placebo, and there is a young band from the UK called Bombast that I really like. My favorite music though is electronic.

Money, Mystique Make Motorcycles Must-Have’s By Patricia A. Farrell, Ph.D. As the price of gas has risen, the allure of the bike has gained new interest from those who always wanted one and those who dared to dream of that “Easy Rider” existence. Legions of hog lovers gather each year for the annual meets in cities both large and small around the US, and wherever they meet, they are greeted with a mixture of awe and trepidation. They are, of course, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, but they could be Honda, BMW or Kawaski, and their riders, according

to research, are getting older and older. The pony tails are white, the washboard stomachs are gone, and arthritis is stiffening the riders’ frames, but the spirit lives on. When we look at motorcycles, what do we see? Raw, untamed power and a sense of freedom? Perhaps. But what about the sexuality of the motorcycle? Where else are you going to get over 100 hp between your legs and keep it there for hours? There is something else associated with motorcycle riding; the thrill of living a sort of ‘rebel’ life. Today’s

average rider isn’t the beer swilling, swaggering Marlon Brando or “The Wild One” type. More often they are software engineers who have a secret wish to get out of their ‘by the numbers’ world, or ‘empty nesters’ who now have the kids out of the house and are going to drink in that new-found freedom and re-capture some piece of their lost youth. A third group would be composed of those who have a personality type we call ‘Type T’, or thrill-seeking tendencies. They love the buzz of wind in their hair and the testing of fate by taking risks to pump up

that adrenaline. It’s a motorcycleengendered high, and probably most riders enjoy a bit of all of these emotions.

Cardinals Corral Cowboys in OT Thriller

Phoenix- The Arizona Cardinals season was just given a serious shot of adrenaline with their 30-24 overtime masterpiece over the visiting Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. LB Monty Beisel’s recovery of WR Sean Morey’s punt block was the deciding tally early in overtime, an extra session that would not have occurred had Cards’ Coach Ken Wisenhunt not given in to one of the NFL’s most annoying recent coaching trends. His decision to call timeout just before Dallas kicker Nick Folk’s first field goal attempt from 52 yards out with seconds left in regulation turned out to be a bad one, as the kick was blocked. According to Murphy’s Law as it regularly applies to the Cardinals, Folk was good on his second attempt, and the game appeared to have slipped away into that tragic netherworld of missed opportunities and bad luck that Arizona fans are so familiar with, but not this time. QB Kurt Warner had another solid performance, going 22-30 for 236 yards and 2 TDs (to WRs Steve Breaston and Larry Fitzgerald) and 1 pick, while DT Darnell Dockett and the rest of the defensive line held the Dallas rushing attack to only 73 yards while pressuring Dallas QB Tony Romo into 3 fumbles on the day.

Desert Donut: Sun Devils Shut Out by Trojans

Los Angeles, CA- It’s been a rough year for the Sun Devils football team. USC’s 28-0 victory was the fourth loss in a row for ASU and indicative of a demoralized squad. QB Rudy Carpenter had to leave the game in the middle of the third quarter with his sore left ankle, and the offense could only manage 229 total yards on the day (154 passing, 75 rushing) while converting only 3 out of 18 third downs. The story of the day was USC’s defense, which accounted for three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown by CB Kevin Thomas. USC QB Mark Sanchez didn’t have his best day, throwing for 179 yards, 1 TD, and 3 INTs. Had he and the USC offense been crisp, the game may have featured an ASU record for margin of defeat. Up next for the Devils are the Oregon Ducks, who sport a 5-2 record and are coming fresh off their bye week.

NBA star Alonzo “ZO” Mourning petitioned himself into foster care as a ten-year-old, studied his way onto the Dean’s list at Georgetown, while in the NBA he underwent a successful kidney transplant, won an NBA World title, was an NBA All-Star MVP, and became the Miami Heat’s all time leading scorer and won an Olympic gold medal. After a career ending knee surgery last year, he authored a book and, oh yeah, likely will return to the NBA this season. You go, ZO.

Rosebrookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lecture will focus on the year that professional baseball returned to Arizona after 13 years of town ball and what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;outlaw leagues.â&#x20AC;?         â&#x20AC;&#x153;Opening day 1928 was a day of parades and politicians, boosters, and ballplayers, as the bleachers were filled in Tucson and Phoenix with the excitement of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national pastime returning to the Grand Canyon State,â&#x20AC;? Rosebrook notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arizona State League was a humble

division, sporting four teams in its first year: the Bisbee Bees, the Miami Miners, the Phoenix Senators, and the Tucson Waddies.â&#x20AC;?         Rosebrook will also talk about baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big picture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baseball was enjoying one of its most popular seasons in the Radio Age,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Yankees and the Cardinals were the toast of major league baseball, and Babe Ruth was king.â&#x20AC;?          On the day after the lecture, a pair of retro Arizona baseball teams- the Senators and Bees- will play a vintage baseball exhibition game at Ken Lindley Field, located at 702 E. Gurley St. in Prescott. Admission is by donation and proceeds will benefit Sharlot Hall Museum. Both the Senators and the Bees are modeled after minor league teams of the time, and are non-profit, independent groups of vintage baseball players who use vintage-style uniforms and equipment, including old-style bats, balls, and gloves.

…And for the Geek Going Back in Time The Floppy Disk Journal and Notepads offered by Retro Printing are a blast from the past for any techlover. Recycled paper is bound between two real

floppy disks that make a perfect place to write down all sorts of info. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials, this gift saves trees and puts old technology back to work!  At $7.50 for the 3.5” notepad and $16.95 for the 5.25” journal, these are affordable and fun.  Available at www.   Who’s Your Mother? These products include business card cases, coasters, clocks, money clips, and even cufflinks for the debonair geek, and are all created from reclaimed mother boards

originally designed for computers, televisions, and other electronics. Motherboard Gifts & More boasts nearly fifty products available in several colors. Motherboard’s gift items exploit the intrinsic beauty of technology. They are also fully functional products that make a definitive statement – I’m technology friendly. Motherboards may suggest sharp edges and bumpy surfaces. Not so of Motherboard holiday gifts. Each is created from material never marred by circuitry soldering. In fact, the boards were never actually installed because they are defective, or deemed obsolete, or part of an unclaimed order. Another reason the product line is Holiday cool: the colors and patterns of circuit boards vary, making each gift item virtually one-of-a-kind.   The bestseller is the business card case, which holds 10-15 cards and fits easily in a pocket or briefcase. Case dimensions are a sleek 2 1/4 X 3 5/8 inches and can be engraved with a name for a personalized touch.

The clipboard may be too big to stuff in a stocking, but its large, flat surface makes it one of the firm’s most visually seductive products. Certain to inspire questions – Is that real? Does it really work? – the board stands out dramatically in contrast to snow white paper. Three sizes are available. The two largest accommodate standard 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheets and legal-sized paper. A mini board is ideal for smaller note pads. Coasters may not seem particularly unique, but this six-piece set will look festive under mugs of eggnog or cocoa, and arrives in a storage tin with a circuit board top.   Holiday Gift suggestions also include spiral journals, photo albums, picture frames, and wall and desktop clocks. The money clip is particularly hip; it makes paper currency look like a brand-new idea!   Geeks will rejoice when they open a Motherboard gift. An epiphany enhanced by the fact that each item is made from recycled material that otherwise would be tossed into a landfill should jingle some bells.   For or more information about Motherboard Gifts & More, visit, E-mail info@, or call (888) 842-6788.
