Television icon William Shatner desperately attempts to avoid receiving a hug from Utah Jazz mascat Bear last Saturday during an event at Salt Lake Comic Con. Shatner referred to Bear’s unscripted appearance on stage with him as “the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.” On the cover: Tee Ledkins of Ogden drew lots of attention while walking the Comic Con floor as Superman.

FROM THE EDITOR Thanks to an email that I received this week, I now know that the compact cassette tape is celebrating its 50th anniversary today. Depending on who you are and how old you are, that may or may not mean anything to you. I mean, if you’re under 25 years of age, you might not even know what I’m talking about. And if you’re of the age when audio cassettes and record albums ruled the music industry, there’s a good chance that you looked down on tapes with disdain.
Personally, I was a tape guy growing up. While many of friends would buy nothing but records because they considered the sound quality to be superior and/or they relished the artwork found on album covers, I was all about convenience. Sure, I had a handful of LPs as well as many 45s, but since the majority of my music listening was done either in my car or on a Walkman, it just made much more sense for me to buy the latest offerings from my favorite bands on tape. Since the early ’90s, I’ve probably ended up repurchasing about 90 percent of those tapes in CD or MP3 form, but I just can’t get myself to throw away those old tapes, primarily for sentimental reasons. So, while I certainly don’t miss the days
of carefully trying to remove chewed-up tapes from my stereo and rewinding them by hand with a pencil or a pinky, I do celebrate the golden anniversary of the first compact cassette tape — introduced by Philips on Sept. 13, 1963. Legend has it that Keith Richards wrote “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” in his sleep thanks to a tape recorder he kept by his bed. “I had no idea I’d written it, it’s only thank God for the little Philips cassette player,” the Rollings Stones’ guitarist wrote in his autobiography. “The miracle being that I looked at the cassette player that morning and I knew I’d put a brand-new tape in the previous night and I saw it was at the end.” — Jeff Hunter
Logan hosts annual salon
The Logan Fine Art Gallery in downtown Logan presents the 2013 Salon d’Automne. An awards ceremony is scheduled from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, to start off the exhibit, and all are invited to share in the excitement of the moment. The artwork will be on display September through December. Now in its third year, the Salon d’Automne is the Logan Fine Art Gallery’s annual competition and top artists from Utah, Idaho and California have submitted oil paintings, watercolors, acrylics, sculpture and other media. This year’s show was juried by Ryan S. Brown, a renowned Utah artist. In 1667, Louis XIV began a tradition in France of fall salons, in which annual displays of French artists showed their works. It gave new prestige to a kind of art presentation that became an annual

event by 1737. The works of members of the Académie royal de peinture et de sculpture were exhibited in a room in the Louvre called the Salon d’Appollon, from which the word “salon” is
derived. The fall salon is held to draw artists and their art to Cache Valley, and also help collectors to become aware that Logan is a source for fine art.
The Logan Fine Art Gallery at 60 W. 100 North is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Visit www.logan fineartgallery.com for more information.

Sara Grey to perform at Crumb Bros. Folk historian will sing with son Sept. 28 The Bridger Folk Music Society presents a concert with song historian and singer Sara Grey at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at Crumb Brothers Artisan Bread bakery, 291 S. 300 West. Tickets are $13 and are available via PayPal at www. bridgerfolk.org, by calling 757-3468, or you can take your chances at the door. Seating is limited; advance purchase is recommended. The concert is co sponsored by Utah Public Radio and Import Auto. Once you have heard Grey sing you will never forget her. She has a certain quality of voice that compels you to give her your undivided attention. Her voice is both powerful and sweet with a distinctive and lovely tremolo. It is a voice well suited to Native American ballads and ballads of Ireland and Scotland. One of the best things about her singing is that it reflects

her great knowledge of and feeling for traditional music. Grey just seems to know what is right in the interpretation of a traditional song. She is a ballad singer of great strength with a fine understanding
of the importance of understatement in the art of ballad singing. Her singing is richly emotional and she is equally at home with a gentle lyric or a harsh account of life on the frontier.
Grey and her son, Kieron Means, perform many of the traditional musical styles (old-time string band, blues, folk, cowboy, Irish, Appalachian) while accompanying themselves on guitar and
claw-hammer banjo. Grey is a true American national treasure in the song collecting field. She is one of that rare breed of singers who have been involved with traditional music over many years and absorbed its vital essence. In Grey’s performance, the art of the singer and that of the storyteller merge to produce a web of tales and songs capable of transporting an audience from the concert hall or club room to the intimacy of a kitchen fireside. Means has such a tremendous passion when he sings, it goes right to his very core; he’s totally immersed the songs. His voice is especially striking, achieving the rare combination of a high lonesome edge with a warm richness of timbre, and it has a power to move the listener that few of his generation can match. His songs range from old-time, through the blues — which he sings with startling conviction — to the work of tradition-influenced songwriters, and his own compositions have people who know a good song when they hear one nodding in approval.
Fresh off a national TV appearance on “Conan,” standup comedian and Utah State University alumnus Bengt Washburn returns to Logan for two shows at 8 and 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, at the Dansante Building, 59 S. 100 West. Washburn’s early show will be rated PG, but both shows are for mature audiences. Performing with him will
be Cache Valley comedians Mike Grover and Spence Roper. Pre-purchased tickets are $9 (available at www.get bengt.com) or $10 at the door. Originally from Utah but currently residing in Virginia, Washburn lived in Logan while earning a BFA in painting from USU (’89) and went on to receive an MFA in painting from Indiana University. A former win-
ner of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, Washburn appeared on “Conan” on TBS last April. Other television appearances in the past include Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” He has also been heard multiple times on the Bob & Tom Morning Radio Show and every day
on XM Sirius radio. Washburn has produced three comedy albums: “Get Bengt,” “Hell Bengt” and “Bengt on Destruction.” He will release his fourth album, “Bengt Over in Europe,” this fall through Stand UP Records. Washburn wrote, performed and produced an hour-long comedy DVD entitled “Mormon Meets World” in 2004.

‘Riddick’ lights up box office during first week LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Riddick” is seeing light at the box office. The sci-fi thriller starring Vin Diesel as an intergalactic criminal with built-in night vision debuted in first place with $18.7 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Riddick” is the third installment in the series, following the $11.6 million debut of 2000’s “Pitch Black” and the $24.3 million launch of 2004’s “The Chronicles of Riddick.” “Riddick,” which finds the

on June 12, 2015. The studio has already said “Safety Not Guaranteed” filmmaker Colin Trevorrow will direct the film and Steven Spielberg will serve as producer. Spielberg directed the first two “Jurassic Park”

million. The Spanish-language comedy “Instructions Not Included” earned third place in its expanded second weekend with $8.1 million, giving it a total of $20.1 million in U.S. and Canadian theaters. “Typically, the weekend after Labor Day is one of the slowest weekends of the year,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. “By Universal releasing a brandnew sci-fi movie with one of the biggest stars in the world, they took advantage
of that and came out on top with the No. 1 movie. It gave the weekend a nice boost.” Dergarabedian said box office totals are up more than 26 percent this weekend over last year when “The Possession” scared up $9.3 million in the top spot in its fourth weekend. “Riddick” will face stiff competition next weekend when horror sequel “Insidious: Chapter 2” and “The Family” starring Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones hit theaters.
By Sandy Cohen AP Entertainment Writer
Three years after “Insidious” introduced moviegoers to the Lambert family and its troubling connection to the spirit world, the stars and filmmakers have reunited for another installment. “Insidious: Chapter 2” picks up where the first story ended, but the sequel has enough scares, laughs and a story of its own to stand alone. Like its 2010 predecessor, “Insidious 2” is a haunted-house tale with supernatural elements. The typical horror-movie tropes are at play here: Creaky doors, creepy apparitions and long, dark hallways explored by flashlight. There’s also a haunted piano that repeats the same eerie melody and an outrageously loud and colorful baby walker that spontaneously lights up and moves around. Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne return as Josh and Renai Lambert, well-meaning parents who moved into a new home after fearing their last one was haunted. Their eldest son, Dalton (Ty Simpkins), has recovered from a mysterious coma (a reference to the first film), but he’s still plagued by nightmares. He doesn’t just see dead people; they want something from him. When the frights become too much for Renai, the family decides to stay with grandma for a while. Lorraine Lambert (Barbara Hershey) has been through this kind of thing before, when her own son, Josh, was haunted as a child. She knows who to call. Josh was treated by ghost specialists as a child, and a flashback
Champaign, Ill. looks to honor Roger Ebert CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Organizers in Roger Ebert’s hometown announced plans Tuesday to try to raise $125,000 to build a life-size bronze statue of the late famed film critic. The statue would go in front of Champaign’s Virginia Theatre, which has hosted the Ebertfest film festival for 15 years. Ebert, a Pulitzer Prizewinning movie reviewer and television personality, grew up in neighboring Urbana and attended the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. The sculpture will show Ebert sitting in the middle of three movie theater chairs giving his signature “thumbs up.” Artist Rick Harney of Bloomington will create the sculpture. Ebert’s widow, Chaz Ebert, selected the composition and organizers said she will work with Harney on the design. “The sculpture will be a permanent memorial which will honor Ebert for both his career and his dedication to his roots,” said a statement announcing the fundraising campaign. “It will also honor him for his determination to press forward with Ebertfest in the face of huge medical challenges.” Organizers hope to have the sculpture ready to unveil and dedicate at next year’s Ebertfest in April. Ebert died in April in Chicago after a years-long battle with cancer. He was 70. Along with his nationally syndicated Chicago Sun-Times column, Ebert became famous hosting a TV movie review show with fellow critic Gene Siskel of the Chicago Tribune.

to his youth reveals even more about the source of his troubles. Carl (Steve Coulter) is a serious ghost hunter, while his assistants, Specs (screenwriter Leigh Whannell) and Tucker (Angus Sampson), provide much of the comic relief, including the always-amusing tranquilizer mishap. Directed by James Wan (“The Conjuring,” ‘’Saw”) from a story created by Wan and Whannell, “Insidious: Chapter 2” deftly juggles various responsibilities: It offers a good dose of non-gory scares, tells a story of supernatural time travel that recalls elements of “Inception,” and pays homage to the genre Wan and Whannell love. In a tribute to its horror lineage, look for thematic and visual
nods to “Pyscho,” ‘’Poltergeist” and “The Blair Witch Project” in “Insidious: Chapter 2.” The film is also selfaware and self-referential, rewarding viewers of the
original film with additional explanations in the sequel. And, like its predecessor, “Chapter 2” leaves open the possibility of more to come. ———
“Insidious: Chapter 2,” a Film District release, is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of terror and violence, and thematic elements. Running time: 105 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

The final count was more than 50,000, making it the largest for blocks. Comic con veteran and Logan resiinaugural comic con in history. dent Melissa Killian said she and her
sister, Jenessa, had to wait in one line to get a wristband, then once they had that, there was another line to enter the vendor room. “There’s just something disappointing about waiting two hours in one line, just to turn around and wait another hour in another line,” Killian said. But like many other fans and vendors at the con, Killian was understanding of the organizers’ difficulties. “It is a first-time con, so there are things you don’t think about until they become a problem,” Killian said. “So you learn. I can’t imagine the amount of effort that went into planning something this big. And they didn’t know it was going to be this big when it
started.” For Killian, a major draw of comic cons is their accepting atmosphere. “Everyone’s nice and positive here. It’s a fun space to come and say, ‘Oh my gosh, I love that so much,’ and it launches into a conversation,” Killian said. “It’s a fun place to come meet new people, and to see what people love.” The geek-friendly atmosphere comes from strength in numbers, Killian said. Bullies might make fun of geeks in other settings, but not when they’re surrounded by thousands of them. Killian remembers attending the 2008 Metrocon anime convention in Tampa Bay, Fla., when the center was double-booked with a Red Bull-sponsored event.
Starbuck-struck in SLC By Jeff Hunter Cache Magazine editor By the time I got out of the Salt Palace Convention Center last Saturday, I was hungry, thirsty, tired and very sweaty. But I also left with a satisfied smile on my face. After seven solid hours of rubbing shoulders with countless superheroes and super villains, I had managed to reach most of my goals at the inaugural Salt Lake Comic Con. But honestly, I just wanted to meet Starbuck and Apollo. You see, while I normally have little interest in science fiction, I did have great affection for “Star Wars” and “Battlestar Galactica” while growing up in ’70s. And even though “Battlestar” lasted just one full season, my older brother and several neighborhood friends embraced the space drama for years. More specifically, my friend, Jeff, and I rode our matching Raleigh MX bikes as if they were Colonial Vipers, with him playing the role of Apollo (Richard Hatch) and me taking on the persona of Starbuck (Dirk Benedict). So, when I found out Benedict and Hatch were going to be in Salt Lake, I felt like I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to see and hear the two space cowboys I idolized when I was 9 years old. Since I missed the “Battlestar Galactica” reunion held Friday night, my first chance to get photos of Benedict came during a similar event for “The A-Team” that consisted of Benedict (Templeton “Faceman” Peck) and Dwight Schultz (H.M. Murdock). The duo was hilarious, sharing numerous stories of working with Mr. T and declaring that, despite the show’s killer ratings, NBC considered “The A-Team” too lowbrow and
“That was not good planning, because you had a bunch of drunken college kids, and like this whole anime geeky con going on, and they were sharing the same space,” she said. “They would come over and be like, ‘Oh yeah? You think you’re cool?’ and then just the nerd revolt rises.” When the Coates found Winkler’s line, a volunteer in a purple shirt barred their entry. “He’s actually closed for the day,” the man said. The family stood at the end of the closed line, wondering what to do — but not for long. “If he’s got a heart, he’ll just take one more,” Cathy said, and walked around
couldn’t wait to cancel it. A couple of hours later, I had a chance to talk with Benedict at his autograph table (I didn’t ante up the $30 for his signature, but I did give him $10 for a “photo opportunity”). Since he’s a native of one of my favorite places in the world (Montana) and still lives in the Big Sky State, it was rather surreal to be talking about fishing in Montana with Starbuck. Similarly, I also had a short conversation with Hatch about Cache Valley. He served as the director of “White Wings,” a short film which was partially shot in Logan in December 2010, so I asked him for an update. Turns out the movie (which has a trailer on YouTube) is still in need of a little money and has yet to be completed. But Apollo … ‘er … Hatch was optimistic that they’d come up with the money in the near future. In between “Battlestar” moments, I was chased off by handlers for Dean Cain and Adam West, despite having a press pass. I was also essentially told “No photos for you!” by a woman attached to Larry Thomas, but unfortunately not by Seinfeld’s “Soup Nazi” himself. But I did manage to get photographs of Lou Ferrigno (who looks, well, incredible for 61) and Peter Mayhew (the man beneath the Chewbacca suit), and I got to listen to a very funny and inspiring talk by Henry Winkler, who has to be one of the nicest guys in Hollywood (and another aficionado of fishing in Montana). I also survived one of the largest events of the weekend: William Shatner in front of a room packed to the rafters with rabid “T.J. Hooker” fans. Unfortunately, Shatner chose to mostly talk about “Star Trek” (which lasted two seasons shorter than “T.J. Hooker”) rather than what it was like to work with a young Heather Locklear.
the volunteer to have a word with Winkler. In a moment she came back to get Chris, then took him to see Winkler. The actor greeted Chris warmly and asked him his name. “This is so cool,” Cathy said. “It’s so nice of you to do this.” He wrote a personal note on an autograph card, signed it and handed it to Chris. “We just got that free,” Cathy said as they walked away. “It was $50. I’m OK with that.” The entire exchange took less than two minutes, but the Coates wouldn’t soon forget the favor. Sometimes the most human gestures happen in a room full of monsters and robots.

It’s hard to talk about “The Woman Who Lost Her Soul” without giving away too much of its intrigue. The novel starts off in U.S.-occupied Haiti, but it’s not really just about Haiti. It’s about the toll paid by individuals when humanitarian interventions peter out or fail, and that makes the novel’s drama all the more heartbreaking and riveting. The title of Bob Shacochis’ first book in 10 years initially refers to a woman calling herself a photojournalist, making contacts in Haiti in the mid-1990s when the U.S. military occupied the Caribbean country.
It’s a turbulent time period that Shacochis knows well — he wrote about his experiences embedded with U.S. Special Forces in Haiti in 1994 in the nonfiction work “The Immaculate Invasion.” Then Shacochis expands the story over five decades and three continents. He manages to cover the Cold War,
the Balkans, the rise of Islamist extremism and Haiti’s seemingly endless humanitarian crisis while exploring the photojournalist’s disturbing family history. It’s a sweeping, expansive book grounded by details such as epic potholes in Haiti’s roads and crowded ferry decks in Turkey. Without veering into conspiracy theories or melodrama, Shacochis builds for both his readers and his characters a sense that something important is being overlooked amid competing agendas. “The Woman Who Lost Her Soul” is an elegant reminder that connections are made one by one — but not everyone is playing the same game.
