Vancouver Fashion Week From Sept. 18 to 23, Spring/Summer 2013 collections from across the country, and fashion capitals around the world, hit the catwalk in Vancouver. In addition to more than 20 Canadian designers, be sure to check out the urban-indigenous designs of Uganda’s Charles Kasozi (pictured). The designer resides in Kampala, but with the help of the Bavubuka Foundation, a photo shoot in Vancouver led to Kaswear being featured in the New York publication Young African Visionaries. His mother, a tailor and textile specialist, showed him different types of techniques for stitch work as well as easy ways to develop complex designs at the age of 14. Experimentation with different textiles and materials created the avant-garde looks he is now known for, combining his refined style with recycled, natural, organic and indigenous materials. The ‘Ras Kasozi’ flavor has taken Uganda fashion scene by storm, including the Kampala music scene. Other international designers to catch include Gretchen Jones from the US and Taisuke Kohji from Japan. VFW takes place at the Chinese Cultural Centre (50 E Pender). Passes and schedule at VanFashionWeek.com

McLachlan sets stage for young musicians Stevie Nicks and Bill Clinton top lineup for Voices in the Park By Kelsey Klassen

W

hen Sarah McLachlan was 17, she stood on a small stage in Halifax with her band, The October Game, for the first time, and found her voice. Looking out into the audience and seeing 400 people smiling back at her, the beloved Canadian singer says that was when she finally felt she had value. It was through childhood music lessons, and ultimately pursuing music as her passion, that McLachlan overcame the self-doubt and isolation of being bullied and unpopular in school. And the 44-year-old Vancouver resident says she still leans on music to get her through tough times. Now, she has called together some of her most diverse and fascinating friends to raise money for a school that she hopes can instill the same confidence in children. Stevie Nicks, Bryan Adams, Jann Arden and local act Hey Ocean! are just some of the artists that acknowledge the importance of music education in children as well, and they will be taking the stage at Brockton Fields in Stanley Park this

Sarah McLachlan’s Voices in the Park concert will raise money for her music school, which provides free programs for Vancouver youth. Supplied photo Saturday afternoon, Sept. 15. Dubbed Voices in the Park, there’s one voice in particular, joining the all-day concert lineup, that has everyone intrigued. Especially with the clock ticking towards the American elections in November. President Bill Clinton — respected orator and talented saxophonist — briefly considered a career in music before making the fateful decision to focus on politics at the age of 16. “I think he forgot what time of year it was when he said yes all those months ago,” McLachlan laughs over the phone with WE. “We’re absolutely thrilled that he’s

able to make it. Music education is very important to him, so he’ll probably talk about that.” Established in 2001, the free school provides a safe and inspirational learning environment for children who would otherwise have no outlet for musical expression (it’s the only of its kind in BC). With arts funding being one of the first cuts in hard economic times, the independent school provides children, Grades 4 to 12, with lessons in various instruments, voice, choir and songwriting. McLachlan gratefully acknowledges the help of the Wolverton Foundation, which donated and

renovated the gleaming 16,000 square-feet building just off Main Street at 7th. Taking up the entire second floor of the multi-storey building, SoM now has freshly appointed music labs, choir and band rooms, and, most important to its visionary, a grand 175-seat performance space where her students can have their own moments of selfdiscovery. Her voice fills with passion as the mother of two “very musical” girls describes the learning curve associated with the business end of running a school. “I’m head fundraiser,” she chuckles.

It has been all-consuming, with her next record taking a backseat to getting the school to where it is today: from a cramped church basement buzzing with dozens of beaming students, to a custom facility and 423 engaged youth. In her 10 years with the school, executive director Ann de la Hey has seen what music education can accomplish. “What I’ve noticed is a sense of pride. It gives them a voice to express themselves positively.” “We’re just over the moon,” de la Hay continues, about the response to Voices in the Park. “It’s just a great opportunity for the students to shine outside of their communities.” With all her energy invested in getting the new school established, it comes as a pleasant surprise that McLachlan is starting to think about music again. She has resumed writing for her next album, slated for release next year. As McLachlan took the stage during the 2010 Olympics to inaugurate an exciting new time in her city, Vancouver now turns out to support her endeavour. Hits such as Building a Mystery and I Will Remember You have been our soundtrack for almost 25 years, and McLachlan is the closing act at the benefit concert.

FALL HOT TICKETS Get swept away by ‘this force that is flamenco’ By Martha Perkins

I

t’s one of those hot summer nights but the warmth emanating from Centro Flamenco has nothing to do with the weather. As Rosario Ancer takes her 20 students through their dance steps at the Alma Street studio, the intensity of the movements builds into the final crescendo of well-clad feet stomping repetitively on the wooden floor. First it’s the hands — fingers fanning in and out in a delicate swirling motion. Then it’s the perfectly arched toes accompanied by a tap of the opposite heel. The hips have no option but to sway in tandem. Uno, dos, tres, cuatro; uno, dos, tres, cuatro. Now the hands come together in a clap, adding an even more pronounced sense of passion to each move. There’s no anger in the stomps, only a determined purposefulness. The hips move with a sensual grace that’s far removed from the overt sexuality of other types of dance forms. “Don’t mess with me,” the dance says, offering both a challenge and an invitation. “I am strong and you must accept my strength. But when you do, you

will see my beauty.” This is the power of flamenco dancing. “You celebrate who you are — big or small, tall or short, young or old,” says Ancer, who with her guitarist husband Victor Kolstee, is the driving force behind Flamenco Rosario and the Vancouver International Flamenco Festival from Sept. 17 to 23. (She’s hosting a free dance lecture and demonstration at the Vancouver library on Sept. 17 at 8pm.) “Flamenco puts me in a special place,” she says. “When I’m performing and get involved with the music, I get swept by this force that is flamenco. You feel part of a whole... I feel I’m part of the universe. It puts me in a place where there’s no sense of self. It’s just pure joy.” For details and tickets go to VancouverFlamencoFestival.org. For information on Rosario’s dance and guitar lessons, go to CentroFlamenco.com.

FALL HOT TICKETS Vivian Von BrokenHymen’s love for Barbra By Vivian Von BrokenHymen

Vivian Von Broken Hymen shares a profile with Barbra Streisand. Nicholas Jang photo

W

hen I first started performing in drag 12 years ago, friends said I looked like Barbra Streisand. I think it had something to do with my nose! After her voice, Barbra Streisand is (arguably) best known for her nose. Barbra’s gloriously elongated nose has helped redefine the definition of beauty. Streisand’s looks opened the door for other ethnic and non-

traditional-looking actresses. Some find Barbra Streisand to be incredibly beautiful; some think she is unattractive. In retrospect, like it or not, the Streisand profile is her trademark and makes her instantly recognizable. I think that’s why I love her so much — she is a person of passionate convictions and opinions that she is not afraid to share or change for anyone! It is impossible to number all my favorite moments that Barbra Streisand has given to me and her loyal fans. But some of

my favorites include her duet with Gay icon Judy Garland “Get Happy” and “Happy Days Are Here Again” from The Judy Garland Show in 1963 , her song “Don’t Rain On My Parade” in “Funny Girl,” and her unforgettable on-screen pairing with Robert Redford in The Way We Were. when she brushed the hair from his face.... That ending still gets to me every time! She is an artist of unparalleled accomplishments in multiple entertainment fields. Streisand —and her nose — are

one of a kind! Vivian Von BrokenHymen will be appearing and hosting the 10th anniversary Heart and Soul 2012 fundraiser for the Heart Of Richmond AIDS Society on Saturday, October 20 at the Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel. Tickets and information at HeartAndSoulFundraiser.com. Barbra Streisand is sharing her magic with Vancouver fans on Oct. 29 at Rogers Arena, with Chris Botti and Il Volvo. Tickets available at LiveNation.com, Ticketmaster.ca and 1-855-985-5000.

Choreographer of viral proposal video to speak at next Public Salon By Martha Perkins

W

ho knew that Sam Sullivan was such a hopeless romantic? Of the 15,537,850 YouTube hits on “Best Marriage Proposal Ever?’, the former Vancouver mayor must account for at least a dozen of them. “Sam loves this video because it is very sweet and is a community driven outpouring of love for a wonderful couple,” says his partner Lynn Zanatta. Sullivan and Zanatta have invited the choreorgrapher of the viral “Isaac’s Live Lip Dub Proposal” video to be one of the speakers at their next Public Salon on September 20. Gina Morris is the mastermind behind the lip dub dance (“Marry You” by Bruno Mars) that Isaac Lamb uses when he corrals a group of friends to help him propose to his girlfriend, Amy Frankel. In the video’s final moments, Isaac tells Amy, “You have already given me a lifetime of happiness. Will you let me spend the rest of my life trying to do for you the same? Will you marry me?” Here is the line-up for the Sept. 20 Public Salon. • Rudy Buttignol, who transformed the Knowledge Network into a force for independent film producers, will ask whether the greatest threat to community is oppression from without or irrelevance from within. • Rick Antonson will consider what inspiration we could gain from the visionary architects of ancient cathedrals who knew they would never live to see their buildings completed. • Best-selling author Dr. Gabor Mate has worked in the Downtown Eastside and addiction medicine and will share insights on life and aging. • Devon Brooks defied skeptics when she made a prosperous business out of Blo Blow Dry Bar but she has a deeper message of overcoming that she is compelled to share. • Timothy Taylor is a Vancouver author that is gaining the attention of the world who will explore the meaning of mercy. • Tim Laidler returned to UBC from the turbulence of war in Afghanistan and now helps young veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. • Jem Garrard is a young Vancouver filmmaker who is winning awards and recognition for her creativity. • Come early and hear Jeffrey Luo, a multiple award-winning pianist who has played with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Not bad for 11 years old. Jeffrey will be playing as the doors open at the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre from 7 - 7:30 pm. Tickets are $16 in advance or $20 at the door. Meet the speakers at a $90 pre-salon dinner. Tickets available at PublicSalon.org.

lmost every night from September 18 to October 17, Rebecca Northan is going on a blind date. Every night, in the quest to find a connection with the possible love of her life, she’ll expose some of the most vulnerable sides to her personality in the hopes that by sharing with a stranger her aspirations, he’ll respond in kind. Well, that’s not quite how it will work. Northan is an actress who has created a clown character named Mimi, “a Parisian temptress,” for a theatre piece called Blind Date. The premise is that every night during the performance’s run at The Cultch, she’ll arrive at the East End theatre for a blind date, only to discover that her date doesn’t show up. Since “the date must go on”, she chooses a man from the audience and there, on stage, they turn those myriad of awkward moments of a blind date into theatre. “It’s really, really sweet,” says The Cultch’s artistic director Heather Redfern. “The thing it really talks about the most for me is people’s vulnerability. It talks about being good to one another, especially when you’re with a stranger. They won’t open up to you unless you open up to them.” By its premise, every night of the show is different. There are some people, however, who believe that it’s somehow been fixed and come night after night, only to discover that it hasn’t been scripted. Northan does, however, mingle with the audience before each night’s performance to get a sense of who she can ask on her date. “She’s looking for a certain type of openness,” says Redfern. Bravery, too. It’s not everyone who will go on a date under the theatre’s bright lights. But Redfern says not to worry. “Mimi is so vulnerable and she creates a safety mechanism for the guy.” Because Mimi and her date get to know each other over a glass of wine, The Cultch has a special permit licence so audience members can share a glass with them.

Blind Date runs Sept. 18 to 23, 25 to 30 and Oct. 2 to 7 at 8pm. There are post-show talkbacks on Sept. 19 and 25. The Cultch’s 2012 season continues with White Rabbit, Red Rabbit, when a different actor every night explores Iranian playwright’s observations of the Iran/Iraq war (Sept. 19 to 30); Cozy Catastophe, “an apocalyptic satirical comedy” (Oct. 22 to Nov. 4); Gold Mountain, a story of the joys and tribulations of Chinese Immigrants (Oct. 23 to Nov. 4); Dickens’ Women, with Miriam Margolyes (Professor Sproat in the Harry Potter movies) portraying 40+ of Dickens’ characters (Nov. 15 to Dec. 1); the “gravity-defying” Leo (Dec. 4 to 15); The Christmas Carol Project, Brass Monkey’s musical tribute to the Dickens classic; and Blackbird Theatre’s adaptation of the Moliere comedy, Don Juan (Dec. 26 to Jan. 26).

Amaluna: The Tempest with a little Mamma Mia! and Wonder Woman By Shawn Conner

T

rapeze artists, gymnasts, unicyclists — in some ways, Amaluna is business as usual for Cirque du Soleil. But where the company’s latest production differs from past efforts such as Kooza and Zumanity is in the cast. For the first time, a Cirque show is predominantly made up of female performers — 70 per cent women. “In other shows, it’s usually the other way around,” says Amaluna company manager Jamie Reilly. “It was really [Cirque founder] Guy Laliberte’s wish to put women at the forefront of this production,” says Reilly. “He wanted to demonstrate the very facets of womanhood, how delicate they are and how powerful.” (The band, too, is 100 per cent female.) Amaluna, which premieres in Vancouver Nov. 23, has a female-centric storyline that borrows elements from Shakespeare’s The Tempest with a little bit of Mamma Mia! and Wonder Woman thrown in. On an island ruled by goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon, Queen Prospera is overseeing her daughter Miranda’s coming-of-age ceremony. But, thanks to a storm, a boatload of young men washes up on the island and a suitor for Miranda emerges. Romeo pursues the young woman through numerous trials, setbacks, costume

changes and awe-inspiring feats of athletic prowess. Also, there is a dastardly juggler, Cali. Director/creator Diane Paulus has a theatre background. Reilly says she wanted the show to have a dramatic storyline that still demonstrates the strength and delicacy of women. “Cali pushes Miranda and Romeo through various trials, and there are very delicate and romantic moments. But you go through a variety of emotions during Amaluna. One of the tribes is the Amazons, a group of girls who do an uneven bars number which is strong and beautiful.” The show might be a great mother-daughter bonding experience, but it isn’t just meant for a female audience. “When people watch a Cirque show, there is a storyline,” says Reillly. “But there are few spoken words because one of the things we like at Cirque is to let the viewer live their own experience. For Amaluna, everyone can find their own complicity with the show. We still do have men, and they’re very strong and amazing. This is where I think men would love the show as much as women would.” Amaluna premieres under the blue and yellow big top at Concord Pacific Plaza on Nov. 23 and runs to Dec. 9. Tickets range from $24.50 for children up to $130 for premium tickets. Tapis Rouge (VIP experience) tickets are $178.50 for children and $255 for adults. Convenience fees extra. CirqueDuSoleil.com

Big tickets: Fall ain’t so bad OnThePlate By Andrew Morrison

N

o one cares to mark the transition of Fall to Winter. They don’t lament the passing of Winter to Spring. Nor do they even notice the change from Spring to Summer. But the shift from Summer to Fall? Ah, that’s the big one — the reserve of Shelley and Vivaldi, keeper of halcyon charms a plenty. Despite our anticipation of its cozy sweaters, cocoa, and (initially) intoxicating smells of fallen leaves, we nevertheless brood at its onset. In Vancouver especially, Fall is when we remember the long dark tunnel ahead, the one we almost forgot; the only dark tunnel in the world in which it rains (and rains and rains). The first official day of Fall — September 22 — is at the tail end of next week, and though that date will pass without much rejoicing, for local lovers of good food and drink, it’s really not so bad. To begin with, it’s the harvest. Our farmers’ markets are really hitting their stride right now with fruits, berries, root vegetables, corn, onions, lettuces, garlic, leeks, and so much more. BBQ season might be coming to a close, and trading it in for pumpkin pie, scalloped potatoes, and slow braises? That’s hardly a mean exchange. The Main Street and Kerrisdale markets don’t close until October 3 and 6 respectively, and the rest will stay open until October 20 (the last day for Kits is the 21st). Then it’s the turn of the Winter Farmers Market, which opens November 3 and runs every Saturday from 10am until 2pm in the parking lot of Nat Bailey Stadium until the close of April. (Get all the details at EatLocal.org). I don’t know about you, but the seasonal transition affects my drinking habits, too. I’ve been on a steady course of white wine, rose, and summer cocktails for several months now, but autumn invariably steers me back to mighty red wines, heavier beers, ports, sherries, and whiskies of every provenance. (I’m a big scotch fan, particularly Islays, and I’ll be opening a bottle of Lagavulin’s 1994 Distiller’s Edition as soon as the leaves on my street start to change colour). Fall heralds the return of Vancouver’s Hopscotch Festival, which runs from November 12 to 18, and I plan on being among its 4,000+ sippers, tasting my way through some 250 different whiskies, beers, and spirits (HopscotchFestival.com). And before the whisky, naturally, comes the wine. Cornucopia, Whistler’s annual (and invariably debaucherous) celebration of wine and food runs from November 7 to 11 this year (WhistlerCornucopia. com), and well before that there’s the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival, a 10-day extravaganza that goes from September 28 to October 7 (TheWineFestivals.com). I’ll be there and back home in time for Canadian Thanksgiving, when I hope to uncork some of the big reds that I picked up on my summer travels through California. For the turkey (one), I’ll be pairing a couple bottles of the recently released JoieFarm 2010 Reserve Pinot Noir. Really, the only thing messing with my Fall at the moment is the impending NHL lockout. While we’re still eating our Thanksgiving leftovers, our Canucks are supposed to fly to Calgary to start the regular season on October 11. Alas, without a collective bargaining agreement in place, there will be no hockey, and a Fall without hockey in Vancouver is just as disruptive to a sizable percentage of the local restaurant trade as it is to fans. Sports bars and establishments close to Rogers Arena will more than likely see a significant drop in trade. Thankfully, our restaurant scene is diverse and resilient enough to withstand the tantrums of mil-

WEVancouver.com

Harvest bounty at the Main St. Farmers Market is just one of the many reasons to look forward to Fall. The imminent openings of several highly anticipated restaurants also give us reason to count the days until the leaves change. Andrew Morrison photo lionaires (and not a few billionaires). Fall will see the arrival of a bunch of newcomers. The highly anticipated Spanish restaurant Espana on Denman could open shortly after this goes to print, and then it’s the turn of the new location of Finch’s in Strathcona, the comfort food-hawking Lily Mae’s in Gastown, the vegetarian-themed Heirloom in South Granville, and so on. In the interim, we can indulge in quite a few secret spots currently flying under the radar, such as Hogan’s Alley Cafe in Chinatown (789 Gore). It’s not new per se, but it’s under new ownership. A Mexican couple recently purchased it, and though they’ve yet to change the name of the business, they’ve steered its concentration away from coffee and baked goods toward authentic Mexican dishes (killer tacos). And just around the corner at Harvest Community Foods (243 Union St.),

former Bishop’s chef Andrea Carlson, truly one of Canada’s top culinary talents, has just taken over operations. We’re told that the little local, organic, sustainable grocery will start serving a variety of Asian-style soups — including proper Japanese ramen — as early as next week. Like I said, it’s not so bad. But should none of the above work out for you and the dark, rainy tunnel still proves too daunting to face head on, try easing into it with a cathartic dish or two. Invest in the French onion soup at Les Faux Bourgeois, the Beef Bourguignon at Kitsilano’s Bistrot Bistro, or the Fettucine Bolognese at Cioppino’s in Yaletown. One or the other usually does the trick for me. Failing that, remember your Shelley: “There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen...”

Own the plate-ium Vancouver chefs from restaurants such as Maenam, Wildebeest and C vie for Gold Medal Plate title to raise money for Olympic athletes By Martha Perkins

V

ancouver — meet the chefs who are representing your city’s culinary reputation in the Gold Medal Plates Culinary Competition. Angus An (Maenam), Joe Campo (Westin Bayshore Vancouver), Quang Dang (West Restaurant & Bar), David Gunawan (Wildebeest), Lee Humphries (C Restaurant) and Taryn Wa (Savoury Chef Foods) are among the 10 chefs who will be vying for BC gold in the prestigious cooking competition November 16 at the Westin Bayshore. “It’s hands down the most respected food competition in each province,” says WE Vancouver food critic Andrew Morrison who, along with the city’s “most respected wine palatte,” Sid Cross, chose the 10 provincial contenders. “There’s nothing like it. It’s incomparable. It’s something chefs want to do. If you’re going to get the phone call to compete, this is the phone call you want to get.” The four other chefs competing to represent British Columbia in the national competition are Mark Filatow (Waterfront Restaurant & Wine Bar in Kelowna), Jeff Van Geest (Miradoro at Tinhorn Creek Winery in Oliver), Darin Paterson (Bogner’s of Penticton) and Nicholas Nutting (The Pointe at the Wickaninnish Inn). At the November 16 event, each chef will prepare one appetizer-sized dish for approximately 500 to 800 guests, say event organizers. Chefs must select a Canadian wine or beverage to pair with his or her dish. They will be allowed a maximum of 10 staff members, in addition to two wine pourers per station. “It’s everything we strive for,” Gunawan said at Friday’s announcement of the 10 competitors at Bishop’s Restaurant on West 4th. “It’s less of a competition and more of having a sense of community. We play with food and show what we can do.

“It’s liberating to do whatever we think can showcase our individuality. We’re asked to explore different territories and do whatever we want without any parameters. We can be a bit more playful and whimsical.” Judges that night will be Chef John Bishop, James Chatto, Cross and Morrison, Barbara-Jo McIntosh, Lesley Stowe, and last year’s Vancouver winner, Chef Rob Feenie, who will also be cooking for the VIP reception that precedes the main event. Judging will be based on visual presentation (20 per cent), texture (20 per cent), taste (30 per cent), wine compatibility (10 per cent), originality (10 per cent) and wow factor (10 per cent). Entertaining the crowd will be Jim Cuddy, the lead singer of Blue Rodeo, and “an all-star cast of Canadian musicians and entertainers.” Since its inception, Gold Medal Plates has raised more than $6 million for the Canadian Olympic Foundation. The emcee at the dinner is gold-medal Olympic kayaker/canoeist Adam van Koeverden. “The first dinner I went to was so much fun,” says the new honourary chair of the event, MLA Mary McNeil of Vancouver-False Creek. (She’s one of the Liberal MLAs who’s announced she’s not running in the next election. Norman Stowe of the Pace Group, which is organizing the event, joked that when they asked her to participate, “we didn’t think she’d have to quit her day job to do it.”) McNeil is the Minister of Children and Family Development and she was the minister responsible for the Olympics. “I hear you’re tougher than Olympic judges,” she told the judges at Friday’s media event. Her job is easy, she said. “I do nothing but eat, drink and be Mary.” Individual tickets are $392. Corporate tables (10 seats) are $3,500 and to have an Olympian to share the meal with you, it’s $5,5000 for a table of 10. For ticket information, contact George Lenko at Vancouver@goldmedalplates.com or 604-646-3566. GoldMedalPlates.com

Rickard’s ode to Fall

It was an assignment that brewmeister Gary Matthews (pictured) couldn’t resist: come up with the first seasonal brew for Rickard’s beer. The season? Autumn. The emotional touchpoints? All the delicious smells of baking coming from Mom’s kitchen. The result: a beer with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and brown sugar dressed neatly in a Cardigan. Matthews was on hand at The Charles Bar to launch Cardigan onto Vancouver’s food scene. He also helped come up with a list of suggested food pairings: sweet potato fries, braised ribs and warm apple crisp. Rickards.ca

Get a little ‘love’ at this week’s farmers markets By Jenn Chic

here are approximately 6,000 varieties of edible tomatoes in a wide array of colours, shapes, textures, sizes and flavours. This weekend the Vancouver Farmers Market will be celebrating “love apples” with its annual Tomato Fest at Trout Lake on Saturday, 9am-2pm, and Kitsilano on Sunday, 10am-2pm. From Aunt Ruby’s German Greens to Brandywine Pinks, there will be close to 100 varieties of tomatoes available. There will be games, tomato trivia and a tasting table to sample the very best part of the tomatoes. When winter rolls around, it’s almost essential to have a bundle of tomatoes frozen whole in the freezer (yes, just toss them in the freezer whole), dried or canned as sauce, salsa, chutney, jam and puree. But while the weather is still warm, enjoying a fresh-picked tomato with a sprinkle of sea salt and fresh ground pepper is an undeniable highlight of summertime. Bask in the bounty of the tomato harvest with this delicious dinnertime treat.

tomatoes are evenly coated. Arrange tomatoes so that they’re mostly skin side up. Place in the oven and bake until tomatoes are slightly browned, have begun to break down and juices are bubbling, about 30 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Place the tomatoes and some fresh basil into a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth or chunky, whatever you like. Use immediately with fresh pasta or store in the fridge in a glass jar for a week.

e’re going to start this week’s column talking about last week’s column. You see, last week I wrote about my friend Lindsay Ferguson. Lindsay wears many hats in her life, the most high-profile one currently being that she’s the sommelier at Wildebeest, the new Gastown restaurant at 120 West Hastings that opened to much acclaim just a few weeks back. Chef David Gunawan (ex-West) has been wowing diners with his fun, unorthodox culinary acrobatics while co-owner Josh Pape’s innovative cocktail program has kept the room’s cheer at fever pitch. Lindsay’s wine program has perfectly mirrored the menu’s flair for both adventure and finesse. Besides running the wine program at Wildebeest, she is overseeing the wines being poured at Jules Bistro, the charming classic French eatery not two blocks away. She’s also a co-owner of Re-Up BBQ, one of the city’s best street food carts, which now has a bricks-and-mortar location at the River Market in New Westminster and happens to be next

door to Fathom, a casual fish ‘n chips shop that she and a few others own as well. Last week I covered this all in great detail adding in the fact she has just had a baby girl and that, despite this very busy life, she manages to have plenty of fun while doing all of these things very well. Apparently we could use a little refresher on multi-tasking well ourselves. It turns out that in a post-Labour Day rush to print, a bug in the machine had completely changed her first name in the headline atop my column, and it wasn’t caught until we’d gone to press. To Lindsay and her colleagues, we’d like to wholeheartedly apologise for the error. To help make it up, this week I’m offering recommendations of a couple wines I know Lindsay has a soft-spot for, two bottles she’s a fan of and often encourages others to try. She often gravitates to the Old World when discussing wines close to her heart, so it’s off to Europe we go! Château d’Esclans 2011 ‘Whispering Angel’ Rosé | Provence, France | $28.99 | BC Liquor Stores A perennial favourite of those who like their pink wines fruity and alive but still fairly dry and crisp! This salmon-coloured, Grenache-based blend has kiwi fruit and wild strawberries bounce around with freshsqueezed spritzes of grapefruit and blood orange. There’s a minerality here keeping things lean and fresh, perfect for oysters, scallops or — why not? — a big ol’ bucket of chicken.

La Miranda de Secastilla 2008 | Somontano, Spain | $18.99 | BC Liquor Stores Blending old-vine Garnacha with a bit of Syrah and the indigenous Parraleta grape high up in the rocky mountains of northeast Spain, the Secastilla crew aren’t exactly pioneers in the region — the Romans can lay claim to that, from first century B.C. — but they are trying to put it back on the map. An almost-mythical air blows through nearby branches that harbour almonds and olives while owls and vultures swoop through juniper, oak and pine trees. Plenty of sunshine gets the fruit nice and ripe, think blueberry and blackberry compote with a good lashing of vanilla and spice. Begs for roast duck or any beast of your choosing.

or local filmmaker Mark Sawers, there’s a specific appeal to making comedies. “I do comedies because I can tell, right away if people are enjoying it,” he explains. “You get that feedback right away, which can also be a bit nerve-wracking.” Sawers hopes the audience laughs when his most recent film, Camera Shy, is screened at the Vancouver International Film Festival that runs from September 27 until October 12. This “dark, but not black comedy” is Sawers’ story about a seedy Vancouver city councillor who struggles at finding reality when he starts to see a camera crew following and recording his every move. “I thought it would be an interesting idea if the character could see the cameraman following him and the audience could see what the camera was filming,” says Sawers, who graduated from UBC film school in 1990. “It’s a very limiting concept, but with a particularly unique point of view.”

What’s all this fascination with Zombies and blood and guts in Vancouver? Are these people trapped in some sort of adolescent Hallowe’en fantasy which is becoming more gory every year? It’s beyond a joke. Perhaps we shuld send them off to Iraq or Afghanistan to see some real blood and guts and the horror and misery of war. It might stop their fascination with death.

Not so camera shy Before he went to film school, Sawers began his cinematic journey in Grade 10 when he would convince some open-minded teachers to allow him to submit films instead of writing essays. “I was just looking to get out of doing homework at first,” says Sawers, who was also a director on the final season of The Kids in the Hall show. “When I started I thought, ‘This is great.’ That’s definitely when I got the bug and decided what I wanted to do.” Inspired by directors including Charlie Kaufman and the Coen brothers, Sawers is drawn to the type of comedy with some emotional depth, the stuff that balances on the tight rope dividing light and dark themes. This balancing act occurs in Camera Shy, showing the archetypical politician slowly heading down a road of psychosis and paranoia. “In a way, I see comedy as the worst thing happening to somebody,” he says. “Something tragic is always happening at some level and I try to take that as far to the edge as possible.” So why does he see tragedy in humour? “I don’t know. Just because I’m the youngest child, I guess,” he says with a laugh.

Free Will Astrology By Rob Brezsny • Week of September 13

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19): You will never be able to actually gaze upon your own face. You may of course see a reasonable likeness of it in mirrors, photos, and videos. But the real thing will always be forever visible to everyone else, but not you. That’s an apt symbol for how hard it is to get a totally objective view of your own soul. No matter how sincere you may be to see yourself clearly, there will always be fuzziness, misapprehensions, and ignorance. Having said that, though, I want you to know that the coming weeks will be an excellent time to see yourself better than ever before. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20): I’ve got four pieces of advice for you: 1. The most reliable way for you to beat the system is to build your own more interesting system. 2. The most likely way to beat your competitors is to ignore them and compete only against yourself. 3. To escape the numbing effects of an outworn tradition, create a fresh tradition that makes you excited. 4. If you have a problem that is impossible to solve and also boring, find yourself a fascinating new problem that will render the old one irrelevant. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20): “Dear Doctor of Love: My heart is itchy. I’m totally serious. I’m not talking about some phantom tingle. I mean the prickling sensation originating in the throbbing organ inside of me. Is this even possible? Could it be some astrological phenomenon? What should I do? — Itchy-Hearted Gemini.” Dear Gemini: I suspect that it’s not just you, but many Geminis, who are experiencing symptoms like yours. From what I can tell, you have a lot of trapped feelings that need to be identified, liberated, and dealt with. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22): If you make a conscious decision to combine plaids with stripes or checks with floral patterns, I will wholeheartedly approve. If, on the other hand, you absent-mindedly create combinations like that, doing so because you’re oblivious or lazy, I will soundly disapprove. The same holds true about

any hodgepodge or hybrid you generate, Cancerian: It’ll receive cosmic blessings if you do it with flair and purpose, but not if it’s the result of being inattentive and careless. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22): Should we boycott the writing of Edgar Allan Poe because he married his 13-year-old cousin when he was 26? Should anti-drug crusaders stop using their iPhones when they find out that Steve Jobs said that “doing LSD was one of the two or three most important things I have done in my life”? Should we stop praising the work that Martin Luther King Jr. did to advance civil rights because he engaged in extramarital affairs? Those are the kinds of questions I suspect you’ll have to deal with in the coming days, Leo. I encourage you to avoid having knee-jerk reactions. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22): A Virgo reader from Austin, is upset with my recent horoscopes. In his email, he wrote: “You’re making me mad with your predictions of non-stop positivity, Brezsny. I need more dirt and grit and muck. I’ve got to have some misery and decay to motivate me. So just please shut up with your excess projections of good times.” Here’s my response: I’m afraid you’re scheduled to endure even more encounters with cosmic benevolence in the coming week. If these blessings feel oppressive, try to change your attitude about them. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22): The humorous science journal Annals of Improbable Research published “The Effects of Peanut Butter on the Rotation of the Earth.” Signed by 198 Ph.D. physicists, it concluded: “So far as we can determine, peanut butter has no effect on the rotation of the earth.” If possible, Libra, I suggest you summon a comparable amount of high-powered expertise for your own purposes. But please make sure that those purposes are weightier. Round up the best help you can, yes; call on all the favours you’re owed and be aggressive in seeking out brilliant support, but only for a truly important cause. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21): Sept. 16 is the first day of Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. So begins 10 days of repentance. Whether or not you’re Jewish, Scorpio,

you are entering an astrological phase when taking stock of yourself would be a brilliant move. Try the following self-inventory, borrowed from the Jewish organization Chadeish Yameinu. 1. What would you like to leave behind from the past 12 months? 2. What has prevented you from living up to your highest standards and being your very best self? 3. What would you love to bring with you into the next 12 months? 4. Who served as a teacher for you in the past year? 5. Were you a teacher for anyone? 6. Is there anyone you need to forgive? 7. How will you go about forgiving? SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21): If I’m accurately interpreting the astrological omens, the coming months will be a soulful feast in which every day will bring you a shimmering revelation about the nature of your soul’s code and how best to activate it. Reasons for grateful amazement will flow so freely that you may come to feel that miracles are naturally-occurring phenomena. And get this: In your dreams, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty will get married, win the lottery, and devote their fortune to fostering your spiritual education until you are irrevocably enlightened. (There’s a slight chance I’m misinterpreting the signs, and everything will be true for only a week or so...)

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20): It would be an excellent time for you to elope, even if you do so with the person to whom you’re already mated. You might also consider the possibility of wearing a wedding dress everywhere, even if there is no marriage ceremony in your immediate future, and even if you’re a man. And if neither of those ideas appeals to you, please do something that will symbolize your intention to focus on intimacy with an intensified sense of purpose. Fling rice at yourself.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19): A reader named Marissa begged me to insert a secret message into the Capricorn horoscope. She wanted me to influence Jergen, a guy she has a crush on, to see how great she is. I told her I wouldn’t do it. Why? I never try to manipulate people into doing things that aren’t in alignment with their own desires. I also faithfully report on my understanding of the tides of fate, and refuse to just make stuff up. I urge you to have that kind of integrity, Capricorn. I suspect you may soon be invited or coaxed to engage in what amounts to some tainted behavior. Don’t do it. Make an extra effort to be incorruptible.
