From the editor
aren’t many places to live where you can drive five minutes and be in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by trees and nature and a rushing river; or drive 90 minutes and be in the center of a bustling, thriving, multicultural city. As I put together Cache Magazine each week, I’m reminded that there are a hundred things to do in Logan (despite many people’s beliefs). There are places like Why Sound and the Alliance for the Varied Arts and The Factory and Caffe Ibis and the Old Lyric Theatre and more that offer up a huge variety of entertainment nearly every day. And every day when I go home, I’m reminded of how peaceful this place is as I kick back on my patio and read a book with the door wide open and my cats wandering in and out. It might not be everyone’s ideal location, but to me Cache Valley will always be the place I want to call home. Have a great weekend, everyone!

THINK IT’S HARD FOR SOME people to understand why I have lived in Cache Valley my entire life. I tell them: Look around. Have you ever seen a more beautiful, safe, quiet place to live? While I enjoy traveling and meeting new people and trying new things, I also feel a comfortable sense of satisfaction when I head back into the valley. I recently spent a week in the Portland, Ore., area and had a blast — we went to the coast and dipped our toes in the ocean, went to the famous Voodoo Doughnuts, shopped until we dropped and went to a couple of local restaurants. There are so many people and so many different things to do in a big city like that, but driving into Sardine Canyon and seeing the mountains relaxes me. While Cache Valley might not be the “big city,” it will always be home. My friends are here, (most of) my family is here and I can get around town with my eyes closed. There

Logan Arthouse and Cinema owner Jonathan Ribera, left, and his brother Joe work on installing seats in the theater last month in Logan.
UNDAY, MAY 23, marks the open house of the Logan Arthouse and Cinema and a new chapter in the life of a historic building at 795 N. Main St. in Logan. Three brothers — Jonathan, James and Joseph Ribera — have a vision of a venue where all residents from Logan and beyond can mingle with friends and enjoy events such as independent films, live music, comedians, live theater productions, fine art exhibits and much more. This is not your average movie theater; the Logan Arthouse and Cinema will be available for rent for events such as company or birthday parties, family reunions and fundraisers. The Riberas have acquired
a 35 mm projector, a digital projector and an impressive sound system. Patrons will be able to enjoy a bistro/cafe atmosphere and, during the summer months, tables and chairs will be set up outside. There will also be free Wi-Fi connection. Doors open this Sunday at 6 p.m., when fans of the TV series “Lost” can view the season finale and check out this latest venue in support of the arts. There will be no charge for the event. The official opening of the Logan Arthouse and Cinema will be announced at a later date. Groups have already started booking events. For further information, visit loganarthouse.com or call 553-9169.

Up next at Crumb Bros.: Leaping Lulu
HE BRIDGER Folk Music Society will present the energetic neo-traditional Irish band Leaping Lulu at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 5, at Crumb Brothers Bakery, 291 S. 300 West, Logan. Tickets are $13 and available at the door or by calling 757-3468. Seating is very limited, so advance purchase is recommended. Leaping Lulu began in 2001 when Laura Zisette, Harvey Neuber and Sara Law (now Gunnell) began playing music together. Just a few months later, Don Anderson and Rebecca Fuller came on board and the band played regularly for the local contra dance series sponsored by the Cache
Valley Folk Dancers and the Bridger Folk Music Society. Leaping Lulu also played throughout the Northern Utah/Southern Idaho region at all sorts of venues. The question most often asked is, “Why the name Leaping Lulu?” As guitarist Don Anderson likes to put it: “It was the only name we could all agree on. We agreed we all hated it.” (He’s kidding, of course — some of the group love it!) Leaping Lulu actually came from the name of a jig composed by fiddler Greg Boardman. The music Leaping Lulu plays tends to center around Irish traditional music, but sometimes they jump around the genre
slightly, do new songs in an old way, or songs they love from any era, just to suit their needs and make things more interesting. Leaping Lulu plays traditional dance and Celtic music along with a number of their own compositions. They make their music with fiddle, guitar, cittern, flute, piccolo, vocals and the bodhrán (Irish drum). Their past engagements include the Festival of the American West, Spirit of the West Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Celtic Stew Irish music festival and a Christmas party for the cast of the TV series “Everwood.” For more information, visit www.bridgerfolk.org or www.leapinglulu.com.

Bridger Folk to host encore Celtic Night T HE BRIDGER
Folk Music Society will present a Celtic Night encore performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 22, at the Whittier Community Center in Logan. The program will feature the local talent of Inishfre Irish Dance Company and the Logan Celtic-fusion band Cuhulainn. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Whittier Center for $8 or for $10 at the door. The performance will follow up the company’s 2010 Celtic Night and will include highlights from spring performances in Idaho, Wyoming and Utah. It will include a variety of Irish dances and dance styles intertwined with instrumental music, singing and storytelling. The performance will be the final activity of the day following the Society for Creative Anachronism’s Renaissance Faire, which will take place at the Whittier Center. Those attending the fair will be admitted to the Celtic Night performances at half price.
About Inishfre The company has been dancing and performing around the Utah/Idaho area since 2003. Started and directed by Julie
Zufelt, the company consists of nine experienced dancers with a wide range of dancing experience. This year’s cast includes dance Sterling Scholar and longtime Zufelt student Kate Jensen. Zufelt arranges and choreographs the dances, staying true to the traditional styles of Ireland. After visiting Scotland and Ireland and having been inspired by Riverdance, Zufelt became immersed in Irish step dancing. She has chosen a program of hard-shoe and soft-shoe dances set to traditional Celtic music with a little “New Age” feel thrown in for good measure.
About Cuhulainn Cuhulainn (pronounced “ka-hoo-lin”) will perform traditional Celtic selections along with a few more modern compositions. The band is a new Celtic combination of musicians including Maureen Killila (vocals and keyboard), David Hunt (fiddle, guitar and mandolin), Laurie Baefsky (silver flute, wooden flute, pennywhistle and piccolo), Harvey Neuber (guitar, concertina, banjo, etc.), Julie Zufelt (keyboards), Ryan Russell (drums) and Chris Mortensen (bass).

Film Still playing “Robin Hood” Rated PG-13 ★★1⁄2 Darth Vader. Batman. Captain James T. Kirk. Now another legendary figure gets the origin-story treatment in Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood.” The world probably didn’t need another version of this famous tale, even though it arrives with outstanding production values and an impeccable pedigree. Besides Scott, the script comes from Oscar-winning “L.A. Confidential” writer Brian Helgeland, and the heavyweight cast is anchored by Russell Crowe as the title character and Cate Blanchett as Marian. (Solid supporting work comes from Mark Strong, William Hurt, Eileen Atkins, Matthew Macfadyen and the excellent Max von Sydow.) This Robin Hood is not a man in tights — he’s not even robbing from the rich and giving to the poor just yet — but rather an expert archer in the crusading army of King Richard the Lionheart (Danny Huston) at the turn of the 13th century. Working with “Gladiator” director Scott for the fifth time, Crowe is hulking and overly serious, and the same can be said of “Robin Hood” itself. With its sweeping scope and tangible grittiness, it does look great. But then the brawny battle scenes, which set this incarnation apart from its lilting and swashbuckling predecessors, are shot and edited in such a chaotic, choppy way, it’s nearly impossible to tell what’s happening. PG-13 for violence including intense sequences of warfare, and some sexual content. 140 min. “Letters to Juliet” Rated PG ★1⁄2 Shakesepeare’s Juliet might want to take her own life all over again if she knew the gooey depths to which Hollywood would sink in her name to woo an audience. “Letters to Juliet” is an unbearably predictable romance that would profane her name if it were not lifted a notch by the graceful, if inexplicable, presence of Vanessa Redgrave. Director Gary Winick (”Bride Wars”) and screenwriter Jose Rivera
(”The Motorcycle Diaries”) pile on contrivances as wannabe New York City journalist Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) heads off with her fiance (Gael Garcia Bernal) on a trip to Verona, where Romeo and Juliet’s tragic tale unfolded. She stumbles onto a group that writes replies to lovelorn women from around the world who leave letters seeking advice from the fictional Juliet. She finds a half-centuryold letter written by Claire (Redgrave), an Englishwoman who relates a tale of a broken love affair with the Italian man of her dreams. Sophie’s response prompts Claire to return to Verona in search of her longlost Lorenzo. With her is her skeptical grandson Charlie (Christopher Egan), who immediately dislikes Sophie. You don’t need to write Juliet asking how this will turn out. Every turn is obvious and expected, even insufferable. Seyfried squeaks and whines her way along here. She has little chemistry with the bland Egan and even less with the dull Bernal. Redgrave somehow floats above this mawkish mess and its sappy dialogue, even when she has to utter some of it herself. PG for brief rude behavior and sensual images, some language and incidental smoking. 105 min. “Iron Man 2” Rated PG-13 ★★ Lots of things get blown up and torn apart in “Iron Man 2,” as you would expect from any self-respecting blockbuster kicking off the summer movie season. The magnitude of destruction far exceeds that of its predecessor and includes repeated instances of characters walking away from a massive fireball without looking back. ‘Cause looking back is for wimps. But that’s not all that gets obliterated here. The substance of the original “Iron Man,” the brain and the soul that set it apart from the typical seasonal fare and made it one of the best films of 2008, also have been blown to bits. Tony Stark had purpose back then, and despite the outlandish fantasy of his Marvel Comics-inspired story, as a person he had a believable arc. Here,
New this week!
“MacGruber” Rated R (90%) A review for “MacGruber” was not available from The Associated Press before Cache Magazine went to press. In lieu, please accept this synopsis from www.rottentomatoes.com: “Only one American hero has earned the rank of Green Beret, Navy SEAL and Army Ranger. Just one operative has been awarded 16 Purple Hearts, three Congressional Medals of Honor and seven presidential medals of bravery. And only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In 2010, Will Forte brings Saturday Night Live’s clueless soldier of fortune to the big screen in the action-comedy ‘MacGruber.’ In the 10 years since his fiancée was killed, specialhe’s purely arrogant once more, with some glimmers of mortality and daddy issues. And Robert Downey Jr., so irresistibly verbal and quick on his feet in the first film (and in pretty much every film he’s ever made), seems to be on autopilot. Sure, he’s got a way with a one-liner, and his comic timing is indisputable, but he’s done this song-and-dance routine before and seems rather bored with it. Then again the character — and the sequel itself — are less defined this time. Narratively, “Iron Man 2” is a mess. Director Jon Favreau, working from a script by Justin
op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that’s been stolen by his sworn enemy, Dieter Von Cunth (Val Kilmer), MacGruber figures he’s the only one tough enough for the job. Assembling an elite team of experts — Lt. Dixon Piper (Ryan Phillippe) and Vicki St. Elmo (Kristen Wiig) — MacGruber will navigate an army of assassins to hunt down Cunth and bring him to justice. His methods may be unorthodox. His crime scenes may get messy. But if you want the world saved right, you call in MacGruber.” R for strong crude and sexual content, violence, language and some nudity. 88 min. Theroux, throws in too many subplots, too many characters. Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson are among the crowded supporting cast. PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, and some language. 124 min. “Date Night” Rated PG-13 ★1⁄2 Steve Carell and Tina Fey’s night out is not so much a bad date as a sad date. These are two of the funniest people ever on television, yet this bigscreen comedy is a dreary,
uninspired waste of their talents — and those of the top-name cast inexplicably appearing in throwaway roles, including Mark Wahlberg, Mark Ruffalo and James Franco. The movie manages the barest glimmers of the droll humor of Carell’s “The Office” and the snappy wit of Fey’s “30 Rock.” Carell and Fey have an easy, affectionate rapport as run-down parents whose big evening out leads to mistaken identity and sets them on the run from crooks. The actors try hard to make it work, but the lowbrow sensibilities of director Shawn Levy (the “Night at the Museum” movies) leave them tottering through painful verbal exchanges, lame stunts and other dreadfully unfunny hijinks. PG-13 for sexual and crude content throughout, language, some violence and a drug reference. 88 min. “How to Train Your Dragon” Rated PG ★★★ DreamWorks Animation has been at the head of the pack for adorable, fast-talking critters with movies such as “Over the Hedge,” ‘’Kung Fu Panda” and the “Madagascar” series. With DreamWorks’ latest, writer-directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois tone down the glib factor and tell a pretty good action yarn, a boyand-his-dragon story filled with fiery Viking battles, swordplay and dazzling aerial imagery. For small children, the movie may not rate as high on the laugh and sight-gag meter as some of those earlier, more slapstick-y DreamWorks tales. After a slow, rather droning start, though, the film takes off on an exhilarating ride through the ancient Norse world, the hardscrabble landscape also a pleasant change from the softer realms of other cartoons. Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera and Gerard Butler lead the voice cast in the story of a misfit Viking teen who befriends a wounded dragon and discovers the beasts make better allies than enemies. PG for sequences of intense action and some scary images, and brief mild language. 98 min. — All reviews by The Associated Press
HE FIRST AND second “Shrek” films were funny, inventive and original. The third film bombed — and pretty much signaled the death of the “Shrek” franchise. When a fourth “Shrek” film was announced, it was a not-sosubtle grasp at one last-ditch effort from Dreamworks to extract as much money from the collective wallets of the moviegoing public as possible. Fortunately for us, the fourth “Shrek” film isn’t a disaster. It’s actually quite funny, but still not as original as the first two films. Shrek has grown tired of the day-in, day-out life of being a dad and no longer being feared by the townspeople. Every day is the same thing: dirty diapers, burping babies and all the same friends. What follows seems like someone from the Dreamworks team went home and watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” and said, “I know what the plot for the next ‘Shrek’ movie is!” Having grown tired of his job as a full-time dad and notso-scary ogre, Shrek readily wishes he could change his life around, even for just a day. Enter the conniving Rumpelstiltskin who, way back in the first movie, had his plans to take over the kingdom of Far Far Away foiled when Shrek rescued Fiona from the tower. After overhearing Shrek’s wish to change his life, Rumpelstiltskin draws up a magical contract — his specialty — and

“Shrek Forever After” Rated PG

for the price of just one day of Shrek’s life he’ll give Shrek one day of ogre happiness. Only the day Rumpelstiltskin takes away is pretty important. The rest of the film is filled with the comical “Shrek” gags we’ve come to know and love as the film pokes fun at all of the characters from the old-time fairy tales. After the first five minutes or so of solid poop and fart jokes, the movie finds its footing and delivers funny scene after funny scene. The look of Shrek’s world hasn’t changed one bit since we first saw it, and the animation is all the same. After all these years, you’d think Dreamworks would have come

up with an animation process that didn’t make regular people appear like they have the flexibility of cardboard. The writing is clever enough to keep parents entertained while the kids can laugh at the more slapstick humor contained herein. It doesn’t have the sophistication or downright hilarity as other recent computer-animated films like “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” or “Up,” but it does have quite a bit of that old “Shrek” humor we were miss-
ing from the third film. If this is indeed the last film of the franchise (you never know), then it’s a proper sendoff for the characters and the movies. It’s a fun adventure that can be enjoyed by parents and children. What it lacks in originality it makes up for with some really funny humor. While this likely isn’t the best animated flick you’ll take your kids to this year, it definitely isn’t the worst. And thinking back to the third movie, that’s really saying something.

alk into Global Village Gifts and a sea of color radiates through the room. Jewelry and handbags, children’s toys, an onyx chess set — all from countries around the world. Sally Keller, who founded the nonprofit store in 2003, says she’s on a mission to familiarize people with the concept of “fair trade” and contribute to the lives of artisans in dozens of countries. “Basically, our mission is to promote the concept of fair trade locally and to support it globally, in that these artisans are trying to improve their lives,” Keller said. “And so if we sell $2,000 worth of retail, that’s going to support an artisan family for a year, on the average. And so it means the dif-
ference in children going to school. It means the difference in maybe having some medical care. It means empowerment for women, as their skills are being recognized.” Fair trade means the artisans receive a living wage for their craft. “No child labor is involved,” said Julie Barker, a Providence resident who has volunteered at the Logan store — located at 146 N. 100 East — ever since its opening. “Most of our artisans are women, and we’ve found that when women have the ability to earn and support their family ... it makes a significant difference in their families’ lives.” Keller said as the inventory is sold, more is purchased. The store doesn’t buy directly from the artisans, but rather from several vendors. “The vendor and the artisans

work together to establish what the price is for the items,” Keller said, noting that the artisans “know what the average wage is within the context of their village. They know how much their supplies will cost.” The items are from roughly 30 countries, mainly in Asia, Africa and South America. In many instances, the handicrafts are made from items readily available to the artisans. One necklace from the Philippines contains beads made from rolled newspaper; another from Ethiopia is made of coffee beans. Colorful rings from Guatemala are crafted with telephone wire. “Maybe when they are tearing down a building or something, they’ll keep the wire ... and reuse it,” Barker said.
Some items appeal to the palate, such as many varieties of Divine Chocolate produced in Ghana by growers in the Kuapa Kokoo cooperative. An onyx chess set from Pakistan is found in a smaller room — adjoining the main one — near children’s toys and musical instruments. Barker said volunteering at the store is important to her. “I do it because I feel like it’s a way that we can help artisans all over the world and still be living here in Cache Valley,” she said. “And I enjoy just knowing that the little bit of time that we can put in each day can make a difference on the items that we’re buying. We can choose to buy them fairly traded, and it impacts the lives of people all over the world.”

HE OLD LYRIC REPERTORY
company, professional theater group in Northern Utah, will return this summer with four familyfriendly comic stage productions at the historic Caine Lyric Theatre in downtown Logan. The 2010 summer season will begin June 10 and run through July 31. The Old Lyric Repertory Company is a production program based in the theater arts department in the Caine School of the Arts, soon to be the Caine College of the Arts, at Utah State University. The OLRC is led by artistic director Dennis Hassan.
“We are looking forward to the 2010 season because each production was selected for its excitement level and appeal for families,” Hassan said. The company traditionally offers a variety of shows annually, including a comedy, a musical, a classical piece and a mystery. “While each production this season falls into one of these categories, they all contain comedic elements,” Hassan said. The shows will include “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged),” “Blithe Spirit,” “Always … Patsy Cline” and “The Mousetrap.”
“The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” Starts June 10
“Blithe Spirit” Starts June 16
Hilarious madcap action ensues when three young American actors undertake the Herculean task of performing the entire repertoire of the Bard in two hours. Zany, irreverent and uproariously funny, the play will change the way you think of the English language’s premier poet and playwright.
“Blithe Spirit” is the most famous of Noel Coward’s comedies. When writer Charles Condomine jokingly hires the medium Madame Arcati to perform a séance, she unwittingly conjures his dead wife’s ghost. Mayhem ensues as only Charles can see the mischievous spirit, who refuses to leave, much to the confusion of Charles’s current, living wife.

IRACLES happen every day at Primary Children’s Medical Center. But once a year, the community and KSL Channel 5 come together to celebrate those miracles during the KSL/Primary Children’s Miracle Network Telethon. The 28th annual telethon begins at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June 5, and continues until 5 p.m. Sunday, June 6, on KSL Channel 5. Throughout the telethon, patients and families share their unique stories of the specialized care they have received at Primary Children’s. In addition, local businesses present contributions to the hospital and the community is invited to call in their donations to help children in need. Every penny raised during the telethon is used to further the care of children battling cancer, heart disease, cystic fibrosis, birth defects and many other illnesses and injuries.

Watch the Primary Children’s Miracle Network Telethon live from PCMC on June 5 & 6 on KSL Channel 5. Contributions can be made during the telethon by calling 1-800-762-7262, or by mail to Primary Children’s Medical Center, P.O. Box 58249, Salt Lake City, UT 84158, or online at www.pri marychildrens.org. The telethon will feature miracles such as 17-month-old Lucas Law of Ogden and 14-year-old Devin Harris of Alpine, along with many other inspirational stories. Lucas fell off the counter onto a hardwood floor and suffered trauma to his brain. After surgery
to remove the left side of his skull, doctors gave Lucas a slim chance of survival, but he has beaten the odds. Devin was born with a malignant tumor on his optic nerve that left him legally blind. He was treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy until he went into remission at the age of 3. Then, at age 10, the cancer returned. This year, KSL personalities Carole Mikita, Doug Wright, Nadine Wimmer, Scott Haws, Kevin Eubank, Amanda Butterfield, Brooke Walker, Sam Penrod, Jed Boal and Darin Adams will host local segments each hour that will share the miracle stories of many patients at PCMC. National programming segments will begin the second half of each hour and are hosted by celebrities including Marie Osmond, Jon Schneider, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Deborah Norville, LeAnn Rimes and Mary Hart.

Former shopping addict tells her story By The Associated Press
HAT KIND OF woman impulsively buys 20 pairs of thongs in different colors at an expensive store, only to realize later that she doesn’t really want them, and so buries the shopping bag in her closet — along with plenty of other purchases she’s never used? Or walks into Saks Fifth Avenue in New York for no particular reason, but feels overwhelmed by an urge to buy something, anything, and so spends about $1,000 on a sweater and a pair of pants? Well, Avis Cardella used to be that kind of a woman, and she tells us all about it in “Spent: Memoirs of a Shop-
ping Addict.” She shopped, she writes, to define herself and to avoid unpleasant realities of her life; to fill a psychological emptiness. It was, at times, quite a rush: “The store seemed to become vibrant, bathed in a cinematic glow. There was the elevated heart rate, sweaty palms, dizziness and general euphoric feeling. I felt I had been injected with helium and could rise to the ceiling if I wanted to.” But after a while she found herself in a “slow bleed” of dealing with crushing credit card payments, scraping out the minimum to pay, sometimes falling behind. She missed a few rent payments and faced late fees. She sneaked through the lobby to avoid the building
manager, even as she hid her troubles from her successful friends. So, one of her friends sug-
gested, how about a yoga retreat in Mexico? Sure, Cardella told herself. She couldn’t afford it, but what a great break from a life of overspending. Eventually, she piled up enough credit card debt that she sought financial help and straightened out her life. She writes now as a survivor. (And yes, she still shops now and then, but without the physical sensations, regret or grief.) She concedes that her story, set mostly in Manhattan in the 1990s, isn’t as dramatic as others she’s heard about. She’s right. Yes, there’s plenty of “Sex and the City” kind of shopping in New York, a window into high-end retail services most of us will never see.
Bio tells superb tale of Brontes By The Associated Press
TAKES ONLY A FEW IcalTpages into the new biographinovel “Charlotte and Emily” to
understand the source of the Bronte sisters’ dark tales. The book opens on the evening before their mother dies, just the first in a series of calamities that propel the Bronte children to turn inward and seek solace in the imaginary world. Author Jude Morgan does a heartrendingly good job fleshing out facts from their life into a readable — and, sadly, realistic — story. The two elder sisters, Maria and Elizabeth, step into the maternal role, only to later suffer humiliation and neglect at an oppressive school. They succumbed shortly thereafter to illness. Young Charlotte went from being a protected middle child to being the oldest, and, in Morgan’s imagination, was compelled to lead her siblings in the funeral procession. Emily balked at participating, declaring: “It’s just too awful.” Life improved little as the Brontes grew up. Having no dowry to
offer potential suitors, the sisters worked as teachers and governesses while they watched their brother — their last hope for financial security — fail in endeavor after endeavor. Writing was a rare high point in their lives — first as children, in tiny books whose pages were carefully sewn together, then surreptitiously as adults, their guilty pleasure. They lived in an era when
writing was considered frivolous at best, and it was unthinkable that a woman might write a novel of general interest. Morgan beautifully captures their passion for the written word, conjuring Charlotte’s imaginary world and its characters, then explaining: “She should not think of them because they were not real, meaning they had no physical existence — yet how so? She had seen Zamorna standing at the schoolroom door and he had been real down to the last grizzled hair and the last twist of gold braid, while all the row of sighing pinafored misses and their slates and chalks and the very grammar-book in her hands were grey, insubstantial things wavering through cold dawn mist.” While the book’s title capitalizes on the fame of the two most famous Brontes — the authors of “Jane Eyre” and “Wuthering Heights,” respectively — it is more accurately a novel about the whole family, and winningly so. Their incredible story and Morgan’s deftness in telling it make for a thoroughly enjoyable read.
(Put it this way: She mentions getting handwritten notes and Christmas cards from salespeople.) But her story, though heartfelt, doesn’t have a lot of dramatic energy. It just runs along, each chapter relating new events but with an overall feeling of more of the same. The reader longs for Cardella to get help and turn her life around, not only out of compassion, but also just to introduce a turning point. When she finally does, it’s almost anticlimactic. Still, for anyone who has felt the thrill of snapping up a bargain or buying something extravagant, this glimpse of the far side of shopping’s emotional kicks can be fascinating. For a while, anyway.

More blistering rock from Dead Weather By The Associated Press
IKE ITS 2009 DEBUT, The Dead Weather’s second album is packed with the kind of thumping, snarly, bluesy hard rock that just begs to be played loud. Jack White and his new supergroup — Alison Mosshart of The Kills on vocals and guitar, guitarist Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age (and The Raconteurs, White’s other band besides the White Stripes) and Raconteurs bassist Jack Lawrence — deliver 11 serious rock ’n’ roll tracks on “Sea of Cowards.” The opening track, “Blue Blood
Blues,” a throbbing, crunchy groove topped with drummer White’s sweet and salty voice, sets the tone for the album. The Nashville quartet stays gritty, groovy and guitar-driven throughout.
They get down and dirty on the sexy, swampy, organ-tinged “Gasoline,” and a little bit punk on the thumpy and thick “Jawbreaker,” with its distortion-soaked vocals and guitars. They get a little weird, too, with the tempo-shifting, odd and experimental “I’m Mad” and the creepy closing track, “Old Mary,” anchored by an eerie piano. But if it’s unflinching rock you want, turn this one up. CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: Trippy video aside, the single, “Die by The Drop,” gives a good taste of the band’s sound and the vocal stylings of Mosshart and White.
