FROM THE WEB From COMMENTS on citypaper.com:

Correction: Last week’s Councilmania (Mobtown Beat, March 4) misstated the number of cosponsors of City Council Bill 09-0289, the foreclosure chattels bill. Council President Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and councilmembers James Kraft (D-1st District), William Cole (D-11th District), and Rikki Spector (D-5th District) did not co-sponsor the bill, as reported; all the other councilmembers did. Also, our EAT dining guide (March 4) listed an incorrect address for Goldberg’s New York Bagels. The correct address is 1498 Reisterstown Road. City Paper regrets the error.

EAT ME: “In Defense of Cooking” Actually, speaking as a long term (7year) raw foodie, I can admit to having used this whole enzyme conversation when I first started eating raw food. The truth is I didn’t understand what I was talking about, but I did not that raw food worked (when done right of course). Over the last 2 years, as I actually started working with MDs who support raw foods, they explained to me that “Yes, raw food does work, but it’s not because of the enzymes.” — “Dhrumil,” 3/4/2009, 10:56:52 A.M.

SOCIAL STUDIES STEELE AWAY MY WIFE AND I WERE LOOKING AT MICHAEL Steele on television the other day, and we came to the conclusion that he’s actually a fairly good looking guy and, with one or two small cosmetic changes, he could be a really smooth brother. For instance, we think it would do wonders for him if he cut that George Jefferson receded hairline deal that he has going on and opt for the straight bald head. Getting into real Married Eye for the Goofy Guy mode, we then opined that growing out his mustache into a salt-and-pepper goatee would further go toward giving the Republican National Committee chair a chiseled, distinguished look. But you know the bad thing? Both of us also quickly came to the conclusion that our mental exercise was just that, because there was no way Steele could navigate the halls of Republican power with a bald head and a goatee

pened in that incident vis-à-vis Steele’s blackness and his ability to reach out to other black voters. Steele failed what I call “The Farrakhan Test.” Since childhood, I’ve observed black folks commenting on what we see as the mainstream’s testing of black people, specifically, black men in the public eye. As I always say, when you’re black you’ve got to repudiate someone at some point that’s going to hurt you to let the white folks know you’re OK. I call it the Farrakhan Test because, all through the ’90s, Louis Farrakhan was the repudiation of choice. And, more often than not, people have buckled and bent and failed the test. When Barack Obama got going, we all waited for the Farrakhan Test. Obama’s Farrakhan Test wasn’t Farrakhan himself, of course, but Rev. Jeremiah Wright. And when seemingly the entire white community demanded he repudiate Wright, Obama stood by him. I remember the disgust my father and uncles expressed

MOBTOWN BEAT

UNIDENTIFIED HELP SAVE MARYLAND SPOKESCANINE EXPLAINS GROUP’S POSITION ON CASA DE MARYLAND.

NATIVES ARE RESTLESS ABOUT 60 PEOPLE stood in the cold and gathering darkness at Annapolis’ Lawyer’s Mall next to the State House on President’s Day, as Susan Payne attempted to place the last few protest signs. “MARYLAND IS BROKEN—who wants to hold this one?” asked Payne, a voluble woman who heads an organization called Citizens First. “PROTECT CITIZENS—who wants to hold this sign?” The crowd, gathered to protest what they see as the growing problem of illegal immigration, was already bristling with signs with various messages—MARYLAND DEMOCRATS LOVE ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR VOTES, for instance. Another resembled a Maryland driver’s license, read JOE TERRORIST, 123 YOUR STREET, YOUR TOWN, MD, and featured a turbaned man clutching a stick of dynamite. Another: DEMOCRATS MADE ME MISS MY DAUGHTER’S WEDDING. Brad Botwin, director of Help Save Maryland, the group that organized the rally, was the first in a series of speakers. “Welcome to freezing Annapolis,” he began. “For those of you who don’t know, Help Save Maryland is a statewide, multi-ethnic, grassroots organization dedicated to preserving Maryland, our cities and our towns, from the negative effects of illegal immigration.” If Botwin lingered a bit over the word “multiethnic,” it was not without cause. Help Save Maryland has been labeled a “nativist extremist” organization by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups in the United States. “Since 2000,” says Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center, “we’ve seen an explosion of these anti-immigrant groups across the nation.” Beirich says that Help Save Maryland’s inclusion on the list means that the center believes the group has crossed a line between legitimate protest into fearmongering. “We created this distinction between a regular anti-immigration group and a nativist extremist group because . . . a lot of groups attack policy related to illegal immigration, but these groups attack the immigrants themselves,” she says. “Protesting the policies is all well and good. That’s what you’re supposed to do in a democracy. But these in-your-face tactics are worrisome—they sow fear in these [immigrant] communities. It’s just scary for the people who are being targeted.” This year there are 173 groups defined by the law center as nativist extremist groups. Two years ago, the center counted 144. Before the rally, as activists walked the halls of the State House looking for politicians to lobby, Payne said she hoped to focus attention on taxpayer funding of CASA de Maryland, a group that lobbies for immigrants’ rights and runs education and workforce programs, but

COURTESY HELPSAVEMARYLAND.COM

the speakers represented a broad spectrum of causes gathered under the anti-illegal immigrant banner, from the Coalition for a Secure Driver’s License, who want to make proof of legal residence a requirement for the Maryland driver’s license, to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which would like to limit all immigration, legal or otherwise. CASA de Maryland, through staff attorney Michelle Mendez, declined to speak for this article. Mendez said the group’s policy was to avoid commenting on anti-immigrant groups, citing e-mail and telephone threats against CASA staff and board members. An occasional politician passed through the square. Payne spotted Attorney General Doug Gansler, “We miss you in the barrio,” she shouted, before turning to explain, “that’s what we call Montgomery County.” Gansler hurried to his black SUV parked outside the State House. A number of politicians came to show their support—state delegates Pat McDonough (R-Baltimore County), Ron George (R-Anne Arundel County), Warren Miller (R-Howard County), Gail Bates (R-Howard County), Rick Impallaria (R-Baltimore County), and senators Janet Greenip (R-Anne Arundel County) and Andy Harris (R-Baltimore/Harford Counties). McDonough, introduced by Payne as “the best friend the state of Maryland has on this issue,” addressed critics of what he called a “citizens’ rights movement in America.” “We are always told that we are the ones who are intolerant, that we are the ones who are not the mainstream.” McDonough told the crowd. “That we are the ones who do not have compassion for the poor folks who come from Mexico and other lands just to get a job and feed their family. Let me tell you the kind of compassion we have as citizens: We have compassion for the taxpayers of Maryland who have to foot the bill for healthcare, and have to foot the bill for those who do not pay taxes. We have compassion for the victims of crime in this state—who illegal aliens, gangbangers, MS-13, people like that, bring victims to our state. That’s who we have compassion for.”

McDonough warned of a “golden age for illegal aliens” under President Barrack Obama, whose name drew boos from the crowd. “Just wait and see—millions more will come.” Among those singled out for praise by Help Save Maryland’s Botwin was Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, who became a hero to the movement when he instituted a program to check immigration status on arrestees there. Rising crime due to illegal immigration was a recurring theme at Help Save Maryland’s rally—a claim that Southern Poverty Law Center’s Beirich calls unsubstantiated, pointing to studies like one done in 2007 by the American Immigration Law Foundation, which found that the incarceration rate of foreign-born men was far less than that of those born in America. She says anti-immigrant groups rely on a few highly publicized cases to make the argument. “It’s argument by anecdote,” she says. “There’s no question that this population is far less criminal than white people like me.” Reached by phone, Jenkins characterizes his immigration-status program as a popular success, He says that legal status is identified while arrestees are being booked, and that more than 300 people have been referred to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement as a result. “The feedback I’m getting is overwhelmingly positive,” Jenkins says. “I would say over 90 percent of the citizens here in Frederick County support it. In written testimony to the House Committee on Homeland Security on March 5, Jenkins said that despite opposition from the ACLU, CASA, and the NAACP, the program had not harmed relations with Frederick’s immigrant community. Guy Djoken, who heads Frederick’s NAACP branch, disputes that claim. “It’s certainly not true,” Djoken said in a phone interview. “The immigrant community has been traumatized. . . . We have a vested interest in rooting criminals out of our midst, but this is not the way to go about it.” CHRIS LANDERS

COUNCILMANIA

KEEPING TABS ON THE CITY COUNCIL’S ACTIVITIES SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO B Y E DWA R D E R I C S O N J R .

ON THE AGENDA FOR MARCH 2 BILL 09-0291—GUN OFFENDER REGISTRATION. In 2007, Baltimore began requiring those convicted of gun crimes to register with the police. The addresses remain on file for three years, and the penalty for not keeping current is a year in the slammer, or a fine of not more than $1,000, or both. This would expand the registration requirements to include some juvenile offenders. THE READ: The bill looks like a cleanup of the original language, but includes some curious provisions. The bill changes the time a gun offender is required to acknowledge their duty to register from when-convicted to “when requested to do so.” Also, in the definitions section, the bill changes the word “adult” to “person,” presumably to include juveniles charged with gun crimes in the adult court system. The council sent the bill to committee without comment, but the bill, submitted by the mayor’s office, raised eyebrows during the council’s work session, according to Councilman Bill Cole (D-11th District). “I was incredulous,” he says. “I don’t understand how, if a juvenile was charged as a juvenile, I don’t know how you could compel them to register,” because juvenile case records are secret. BILL 09-0293—DOWNTOWN MANAGEMENT DISTRICT— ADJUSTMENT OF BOUNDARIES. This would extend the Downtown Management District—a special taxing district that provides enhanced cleanup and security in exchange for a 13-cents per $100 of assessed value property-tax surcharge—one block west from Howard Street to Eutaw, from the 300 block to the 800 block. THE READ: Tom Yeager, executive vice president of the “clean and safe” program for the Downtown Partnership, says his organization has been cleaning the streets at no charge for about two years anyway, as part of the partnership’s efforts to bolster Lexington Market. “We sent letters out to all the property owners” seeking comment on the move to start charging, he says. None of the 29 business property owners came to the Jan. 30 public hearing, he says. (Non-profits, and the 53 residential properties in the area, would be exempt from the tax.) 08-0252—SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL—SIDEWALKS. This is to transfer responsibility for clearing the sidewalk from tenants to property owners. THE READ: The idea is that the property owner is always responsible; the bill, now in third reader, would make the city’s snow-removal ordinance conform to the other ordinances involving property maintenance. It is still legal for a lease to require a tenant to shovel the walk, but if it doesn’t get done, the owner will get cited, not the tenant. Says Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke (D-14th District): “I would just like to say to those watching on TV, this bill is being voted on now—go shovel your walk.”

QUOTE OF THE WEEK “It’s free to every child in Baltimore City, from the federal government, so let’s eat!” —Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke, endorsing expansion of the school breakfast program in Baltimore. THE CITY COUNCIL’S NEXT MEETING IS SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 16 AT 5 P.M.

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH Patterson Park CDC files for bankruptcy, leaving the area’s future in question

BY ERIN SULLIVAN PHOTOGRAPHS BY FRANK KLEIN 12 | city paper

MARCH 11, 2009

IT’S AROUND 4 O’CLOCK on a February afternoon, and the 100 block of North Port Street is deserted save for a couple of cats yowling for attention. The wind blows candy wrappers and empty potato-chip bags around on the sidewalks, until they collect in the doorways of one of the vacant buildings that dot this particular block. 106 N. Port looks like it may have burned, based on the blackened-looking Formstone framing some of the windows and doors, all of which are covered with fresh sheets of plywood. 112 N. Port has been foreclosed—three stickers from Safeguard Properties are posted to the door. 117 bears a banner announcing that this is ANOTHER FINE CUSTOM HOME FROM JKM PROPERTIES, but a search in the city’s building-permits database shows that the last permit pulled to work on this house expired in December 2008. 129 N.

Port’s front door is now boarded up and stamped with a NO TRESPASSING , NO LOITERING warning. A breeze blows around some ratty curtains that hang in knots in the open upstairs windows. Jimmie Ray Oxendine is standing on the front steps of 105 N. Port, a Formstone-covered rowhouse he rents near the corner of East Fairmount Avenue. He points out which houses are rentals, which have been worked on recently, and which have been neglected for years. A handful, he says, are owned by absentee landlords who own multiple properties in the area and don’t do anything with them except collect the rent. Two, three, even four families (mostly LatinAmerican) crowd into some of these narrow single-family homes, paying rents as high as $1,800 per month. “Slumlords,” he says, are all over this neighborhood and things have only


been getting worse since the economy has plummeted. There are 40 properties on this block of North Port, according to the Maryland State Department of Assessment and Taxation, but only seven of them are owned by the people who actually live in them. The others are mostly owned by property developers, landlords, real-estate speculators. Records indicate, however, that nine of them belong to the Patterson Park Community Development Corporation (PPCDC), an ambitious nonprofit community revitalization and development organization that rehabbed and then rented or resold hundreds of properties in this part of East Baltimore. The view from Oxendine’s front steps is completely different than the view from the steps of any of the houses just one block south on Port,

where several years ago the PPCDC bought up as many of the decrepit buildings as it could and poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into them. It removed faded Formstone to reveal the handsome brick facades hidden beneath. It gutted interiors and installed gourmet kitchens, central air, gas fireplaces, and whirlpool tubs. It turned some of the narrow alley houses into 2,000-square-foot doublewides with state-ofthe-art kitchens, 20-foot ceilings, and floating fireplaces. These homes, redubbed the Palaces on Port Street, were priced at $400,000 and up. Instead of sheets of plywood and NO TRESPASSING signs, there are welcome mats and decorative planters on the first block of Port. The majority of the people who live here own their homes and many of them paid a tidy sum for them, but scattered between the higher-end homes

Blocks like this, according to Ed Rutkowski, founder and former executive director of the PPCDC, represent the organization’s greatest success. “The neighborhood is an amazing, stable mix of black, white, and brown,” Rutkowski says in an e-mailed response to questions about the PPCDC. “There aren’t many neighborhoods of this size in the entire country of which that can be said.” The Patterson Park Community Development Corporation, which is largely credited with

stabilizing and turning around the neighborhoods north of Patterson Park over the course of the past decade, declared bankruptcy last month. It cited the crumbling U.S. economy and the fact that one of its lenders, Bradford Federal Savings Bank, placed liens against some of the organization’s properties, putting its ability to pay back other creditors in jeopardy. Bradford Bank representatives did not return calls for this story. PPCDC’s bankruptcy means that the fate of these two blocks of North Port Street—and the many other nearby blocks where PPCDC owns

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH properties it has not yet rehabbed or sold—is now in question. Indeed, the bankruptcy leaves a number of things in question. Some think the organization will liquidate its assets and fold; others say it could remain a small but going concern in the area. And it’s equally unclear what the future holds for the neighborhoods around Patterson Park that the organization revitalized and supported—and, at times, propped up. OXENDINE, A ROOFER, has lived in the neighborhood “a long time,” he says, and over the years he has watched the area around the park change as waves of investment and disinvestment swept over it. This part of East Baltimore was once populated mostly by working-class people who often lived in the area their entire lives. Today its demographics are a jigsaw

rounding the park on the cheap. The area north of the park, longer-term residents, investors, and homeowners feared, was quickly becoming neglected, poor, and forgotten. A handful of neighborhood activists formed a nonprofit coalition to combat the urban ills— the crime, grime, drugs, and other problems— that were making their neighborhood an unpleasant place to live. That effort, called the Patterson Park Neighborhood Initiative, gave birth to a community development corporation set up specifically to buy up problem properties, fix them up, and sell them. The East Fayette Street Community Development Corporation, founded by Rutkowski, a former computer analyst for United Parcel Service who quit his job to devote his time to community organizing, was the predecessor of the PPCDC, which was formally incorporated in 1996. As Rutkowski has explained in interviews with City Paper over the years, he was eager to get the organization off the ground because he realized that controlling the real-estate market in the neighborhoods was the best way to keep blight at bay.

At the time, Almaguer adds, Patterson Park was generally seen as a haven for prostitution and drugs, and in order to change that perception, Rutkowski wanted to bring “positivity.” “The Halloween Lantern Parade, festivals, music,” Almaguer says. “Initially all of those events were put on by the events coordinator paid for by the PPCDC.” According to Rutkowski, to the extent that the founders had expectations for the PPCDC’s success, it wildly exceeded them. “Everyone who bought from us got a quality product, especially on the structural end,” says Rutkowski, who stepped down as executive director in 2007. But, he adds, “the real difference between the CDC and for-profit developers was that the CDC was not about maximizing profit, though we took it when we could. We plowed that profit back into the neighborhoods. We spent over $1,000,000 on neighborhood projects. Few developers do that.” BY MID-2006, HOWEVER, it started to become clear that the real estate boom was just a bubble,

estate market that supplied it with cash to pay salaries, complete rehabs, and run community programs, plummeted. According to the Patterson Park Community Development Corporation’s IRS paperwork, up until 2005 the organization held its own. In fiscal year 2004, it brought in revenue of more than $9.1 million primarily through the sale and rental of properties. Of its $9.7 million budget, only $534,133 came in the form of direct public support (donations and foundation or corporate support). That year the PPCDC reported that it put nearly all of that income—some $8.9 million—back into its programs, while it spent more than half a million in payroll expenses. It ended fiscal 2004 with $681,603 in the bank, but a budget deficit of $47,427. By the end of fiscal year 2005, the organization’s public support shrank to just over $218,000. But once again, it raised more than $9 million itself. That year, it put $9,424,418 back into its programs and ended up with a deficit of more than $1 million, which ate up the previous year’s reserves, and left the organization

“WE PLOWED THAT PROFIT BACK INTO THE NEIGHBORHOODS,” FORMER PATTERSON PARK CDC HEAD ED RUTKOWSKI SAYS. “WE SPENT OVER $1,000,000 ON NEIGHBORHOOD PROJECTS. FEW DEVELOPERS DO THAT.” puzzle whose pieces don’t always fit together as well as some would like. “The area north of the park has always been where a lot of conflicting issues came together,” says Chris Ryer, executive director of the S o u t h e a s t C o m mu n i t y D ev e l o p m e n t Corporation, which works in a huge swath of neighborhoods south of the Route-40 corridor, from Little Italy and Harbor East all the way to Greektown and Brewer’s Hill. “There has been literally a 30-year attempt to fight disinvestment, and so it’s manifested today in a very dramatic line. There’s a line between where PPCDC drops off—a line between where they are working and where they haven’t been. You have $300,000 houses a block away from [unrehabbed] shells.” Indeed, on any given block in the neighborhood—even the ones where the majority of the homes bear the telltale signs of high-end rehab—there are eyesores. Homes that are boarded, burned, vacant, or simply falling apart, homes where trash piles up in backyards or front doors bear forbidding NO TRESPASSING signs. To some degree, that’s been part of the story of this area of the city for decades—a story that the PPCDC tried to change. Gradual disinvestment that began in the 1960s with white flight from urban areas to the suburbs continued into the 1980s, leading to serious deterioration in the Patterson Parkarea neighborhoods. By the 1990s absentee investors and slumlords had scooped up many of the vacant and neglected properties sur-

During its first five years, the organization bought up literally hundreds of houses north of the park to get them off the market and out of the hands of negligent landlords and investors. It turned some of them into rentals, rehabbed others, and held onto others while it raised money to rehab them. Over the years, the organization invested millions in the neighborhoods, buying, selling, and renting properties from Orleans Street to the north, Eastern Avenue to the south, Patterson Park Avenue on the west, to Haven Street on the east. It also expanded beyond its core mission to buy and rehabilitate houses and became an economic and social community booster. Because Rutkowski knew that people wanted access to good schools when they moved into a neighborhood, he had the PPCDC work with the Abell Foundation to offer free tuition to St. Elizabeth School for families who bought homes through the PPCDC. The PPCDC also started providing grants to other community organizations and nonprofits working in the area. For instance, says Tim Almaguer, executive director of the Friends of Patterson Park, up until about five years ago the PPCDC provided a paid staff member for his organization to help promote events in the park. “For Ed, when he fixed up these houses, the only way to get somebody into that house was to make the quality of life in this area wonderful,” Almaguer says. “He saw a long time ago the symbiotic relationship of neighborhoods and parks.”

and the organization, which already owned more than 150 rental units and anywhere from 100 to 200 houses in various states of decay and rehabilitation, stopped buying properties. It cut back on staff (at any given time during the organization’s most successful years, it employed 25 to 27 people) and sold off houses to raise cash, but as the economy slowed, then started to stall, so did the PPCDC’s financial success. By November 2008, the Baltimore Business Journal reported that the organization was struggling to stay afloat. By December, it had let go Mark Tough, the acting executive director who had taken over Rutkowski’s duties, and had brought in a restructuring officer to help it raise money and pay off debt. By January 2009, the organization had defaulted on more than $900,000 in loans. And on Feb. 17, it issued a press release that announced that the “driving force behind the revitalization of the neighborhoods north of Patterson Park” had filed for Chapter 11, a reorganization bankruptcy, to restructure its debt and pay off its creditors. Trying to determine exactly how the PPCDC gathered and spent its money is not easy because the financial documents on file with the Internal Revenue Service offer limited information about financial transactions. The documents tell a story of a nonprofit organization that received relatively little public support in the form of foundation money, grants, and corporate donations, relying instead on cash it generated itself. A seemingly ideal situation, it ultimately hurt the organization when the real-

$381,937 in the hole. Compared to how other CDCs operate, says the Southeast CDC’s Chris Ryer, the PPCDC was much more aggressive. Ryer’s organization was burned in the real estate market about 10 years ago, he says, and now maintains a less speculative income stream that he estimates is about half government funding, one-quarter corporate funding, and one-quarter foundation support. The PPCDC, on the other hand, relied on its real estate dealings to pay for nearly everything. PPCDC was, “in essence, acting as a private developer,” Ryer says. “I think that their motives were pure, but their income stream, I would guess, was unbalanced from a CDC perspective. Ed was really riding that market wave, and it crashed.” In fiscal year 2006, the last year for which financial information on the organization was filed with the IRS, the PPCDC received $847,419 in direct public support, raised a massive $11,918,457 in program-service revenue, and reported $487,145 in “other” revenues. That year, its financials say, it put $13,390,518 back into its programs, spent $1,331,532 on management and general expenses (including payroll), and ended the year with its largest deficit yet: $1,599,237. According to Fred Puddester, who served as chairman of the finance committee for the PPCDC until 2007, the organization’s financials are not unusual. “As is the case with many small nonprofits,” he says, “securing a sound financial foundation is difficult. The strong vision of the group is what made it successful. But sometimes that vision stretched the financial capability

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH of the organization. . . . The financial condition was pretty consistent throughout my time there. It always had assets, but little cash.” A call to current PPCDC treasurer Art Roos, seeking comment on the organization’s financial situation, was not returned. Though there are no public financial records on file yet for the most recent fiscal years, Rutkowski says PPCDC tried to cut back, but found itself in a precarious position when the economy took a serious downturn in the fall of 2008. The organization had borrowed heavily against the value of the properties it owned and had very little to fall back on. It tried to unload rental properties, but in the end, it wasn’t enough. “As the real estate market collapsed, virtually every part of the organization’s portfolio became a drain,” Rutkowski writes. “Rents did not adequately support mortgage payments as property assessments tripled or more. Finished houses were sitting unsold; it didn’t make sense to finish construction on properties that would not sell.” SOME OF THE UNFINISHED PROPERTIES can be seen on the first block of North Decker Street, where the PPCDC invested more than $600,000, buying all but one house on the east side of the street to make way for an ambitious development project. Each home in a row of 19 contiguous houses was gutted and completely redesigned as a silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified “green” home, complete with energy-efficient systems and roofs planted with grass. The block was dubbed Decker Walk, and Trace Architects, the architecture firm that designed it (a business that spun off the PPCDC when the organization could no longer afford to pay an in-house team of architects), says it’s one of just two development projects in the city to participate in the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Neighborhood Development pilot program. Brian Sellers relocated from Charles Village when he bought his“envirowhome”on the block about a year ago. He’s happy with his new neighborhood, and he loves his house. “Everything inside is all new, and everything they used is high end,” he says. “Getting all of that at a notbrand-new-house price, and all of the tax credits, made it extremely appealing. And I think everybody on the street likes the idea of investing in revitalizing a community.” Sellers says his neighbors are very active and involved in keeping things safe and clean, and for that, he thanks the PPCDC, which he says helped foster a sense of community here and encouraged residents to invest their time in improving the neighborhood. So he says he was very surprised when he called on the organization a few months after moving into his home to make repairs per the home war-

ranty he received when he bought it. He says that first he had trouble reaching anyone at the PPCDC, then he had even more trouble getting anyone to fix things for him. It took months and much persistence to get the repairs—all minor, he says—completed. Many of the Decker Walk houses, including his, were not quite finished when homeowners moved in. Small things that they promised to get to— such as the grass that was supposed to be planted on the rooftops—were not done before the PPCDC declared bankruptcy. “They left without finishing a few things,” he says, but even worse, in his eyes,“they didn’t make any attempts to get in touch with people, to let them know what was going to happen. In fact, they made it hard to contact them . . . it just wasn’t handled professionally.” Some of the homes on Decker Walk have not yet sold, and realtor signs hang on their railings. On closer inspection, several of the houses have exposed wiring sticking out of their facades, where a porch light should go. Looking up at the roofs, it’s not hard to spot missing flashing and exposed materials blowing around in the wind. Property records indicate thatthe 13 envirohomes that sold on this block went at prices ranging from $281,000 to $372,000; even with four of them still up for sale, the numbers make it look like PPCDC made a gross profit of $3,948,930 in sales on that block. On paper, that looks like a windfall, but Rutkowski says the figures don’t tell the whole story. “There were two and three-story houses with average construction costs well over $200,000 for two-story houses and over $250,000 for three-story houses,” he writes. “On top of that, there were a lot of transaction fees on that project. I can say this, that we were projecting, just on a modest year-over-year price increases, sale prices for the two-story houses at $325,000. We never got close to that, so the profit, where it existed at all, was modest.” Sellers and other residents of the area, say they understand the economics of the situation, but Sellers acknowledges that doesn’t completely assuage a sense of disappointment with the organization that got people like him to buy in—on more than just a house. “I’m not looking to bash the organization,” he says. “I understand that this is a really hard time, financially, right now. It’s a business, and it just didn’t work out. But for a place that built itself on a partnership with the community, it feels like they just bailed.” AFTER HE STEPPED DOWN from his executive director position in 2007, Rutkowski retained a seat on the board of the PPCDC, but says his role in the organization was more or less that of a consultant and institutional memory. (Today, he is the executive director of the Patterson Park Public Charter School.) The executive directorship of PPCDC was then filled by Acting Executive Director Mark Tough, who says last fall’s economic collapse was the “final nail in the coffin” for the already struggling group. Funneling all its revenues back into the

neighborhood may have helped lead to PPCDC’s bankruptcy, Tough says, but it was all for the good of the neighborhood. “For years we were designing and building houses of greater individuality and quality than most private developers,” he writes in an e-mail. “But we were also very interested in spurring private residential development. We partnered on projects with private developers and did all we could to encourage their further work in the neighborhood; I think in some cases we forced those developers to ramp up their game, to the benefit of the overall neighborhood.” That sentiment is not shared by everyone in the Patterson Park community. An anonymous e-mailer sent messages to City Paper recently to complain that the PPCDC did not maintain its properties, engaged in unethical practices like house banking (buying up multiple properties on a block and holding onto them until it decided it had enough to go forward with rehab), and leaves behind a legacy of “unfinished projects, a rental portfolio man-

aged from outside of the community, unsatisfied customers and neighbors.” The e-mailer compares how PPCDC operated to a Ponzi scheme, paying old bills with the proceeds from new sales. Rutkowski says that it’s true that the PPCDC bought and held properties until it could find the money or a partner to develop them, and the organization did have to use the proceeds from sales to pay its bills and debts. But he says the PPCDC’s real estate business “was far from a Ponzi scheme.” “There were no ‘fake’ investments,” he says. “As with any growing business, we certainly invested funds from grants and sales and rental income in future projects. That’s how any business grows. Our lenders were fully informed and performed their own due diligence on the projects they invested in. We were trying to take back an abandoned neighborhood, and we did. . . . We saw the choice as one in which we could buy them and let them sit until we could get to them, or we could let them be purchased by slumlords who would not maintain the properties, nor care about the behavior of their tenants. The choice was easy.” “Critics can cherry-pick scattered problems when you’ve got around 200 properties, and some problems undoubtedly did arise here

The loss of PPCDC, she says, could mean that the properties it owns once again fall into the wrong hands. She isn’t pleased that on some blocks—such as the 100 block of Port, where Oxendine lives, just one block north of her house—the PPCDC owns “30 to 40 percent” of the unoccupied or rental houses. According to property records, the PPCDC owns nine houses on the 100 block of North Port currently, but it used to own more: In April 2008, it sold a contiguous block of five of the homes it owned—130, 132, 134, 136, and 138—to an investor. “A lot of the houses [owned by PPCDC] are vacant,” Voss says. “We are concerned about

who they will turn them over to. Will it be a slumlord? It’s very frustrating.” Marisa Vilardo shares Voss’ concerns. As president of the Patterson Park Neighborhood Association, which represents residents north and east of the park, she has on her mind some 125 properties—some rentals, some rehabs, some vacant—that state tax records indicate are still held by the PPCDC, and which are going to have to be sold off to pay down the organization’s debt. “We are definitely concerned about whose hands they end up in,” she says. “Not just in terms of property values, but also whether they will end up in the hands of landlords and end up as rentals.” The gains PPCDC made in stabilizing the neighborhood won’t be easy to maintain, even if all the properties remain in conscientious hands. Vilardo notes that PPCDC organized and paid for cultural events, marketed the neighborhood, provided basic services like street cleanup, and applied for and distributed grants to improve the neighborhood’s quality of life. Now

someone has to carry on such tasks, if the momentum is going to move forward. The residents and neighborhood organizations in the area—all of which have invested so much money and effort here that it’s probably not feasible for them to just give up and move out—are trying to fill the gaps PPCDC’s p o s s i b l e a b s e n c e w i l l l e av e . B a n n e r Neighborhoods has already taken over an alleycleaning program that used to be handled by the PPCDC. Vilardo’s organization is working on holding a Patterson Park home tour that will coincide with the Kinetic Sculpture Race in the park the first weekend in May. “We have a really active neighborhood association,” says Vilardo, “but it’s different, because we are an all-volunteer organization, we don’t have anybody who gets paid to do [community development]. The PPCDC had people who got paid and had resources to go after grants and stuff.” When asked what he thinks the future of the neighborhoods around Patterson Park will be, Rutkowski says he thinks they will be “fine” and says it’s “impossible to tell right now” whether this will be the end for the PPCDC or whether it will come out of its bankruptcy proceedings a viable entity. Even if it does, it’s doubtful that it will be able to perform the same

functions that it did before. Plenty of businesses are struggling and failing in the current recession, but Southeast CDC’s Ryer underlines the fact that the PPCDC’s collapse means more to the neighborhoods it served than just the loss of a thoughtful developer. “Neighborhoods need management,” Ryer says. “That’s my belief . . . and this is a perfect example of a neighborhood needing management. And it may need public resources also. It may not necessarily need cash, but it may need thoughtful intervention, a way to deal with the speculators, code enforcement. “The analogy would be that a company gets overextended and Warren Buffet comes in and scoops it up and rebuilds it, because he buys it cheaply,” Ryer adds. “But neighborhoods are not companies. So somebody that scoops up the PPCDC real estate portfolio, if they are a bad guy, they’ll milk it. If they are good guy, they will invest in it. But even then, they won’t do the community-development part that the PPCDC did. That part is lost.” ■ ADDITIONAL REPORTING BY EDWARD ERICSON JR.

LAURE DROGOUL

THIS WEEKEND Follies, Predicaments, and Other Conundrums: The Works of Laure Drogoul concludes its run in MICA’s Meyerhoff and Deckard galleries. City Paper already published a review of the show (“Mystery! Science! Theater!” Art, Feb. 11), but for a local artist of this singular vision and long-standing ties to its underground arts community, no review quite taps the extent of her contributions to Baltimore’s creative endeavors since

“WE WERE JUST KIND OF DOING OUR THING.”

City Paper stole a few hours of Drogoul’s time to talk about her time in Baltimore. A complete version of the discussion can be found online, but in this excerpt, she talks about her early days in Baltimore’s underground art communities. (Bret McCabe)

she moved here in 1979. “I think it’s crucial in any cultural community to have people who are simultaneously visionary generators of content, but who also are, themselves, benevolent people,” says local artist John Berndt of Drogoul, who he first met in the early 1990s. “So that fact that Laure is somebody who is a peaceful person who is dedicated to getting along with people, who is dedicated to trying to understand people, and at the same time has this really intense singular vision, that contradiction to me is really where the action is as far as making for a healthy cultural scene.” “This is the artist living and breathing her work, this is the artist questioning everything in every waking moment, this is the artist that truly opens our minds and senses with immediacy,” writes Catherine Pancake in an e-mail about Drogoul. Pancake recently completed a short film about Drogoul, “DrOgoul’s Oeuvre Fantastique,” as part of Follies. “This is the artist of the extreme past and imminent future. An American artist of five decades: unscathed, brutally creative, visionary.” When Drogoul started the 14-Karat Cabaret in 1989, her broad programming interests—from performance to music, poetry to film—filled its evenings with a smorgasbord of diverse bills, filling a venue void in Baltimore at the time. “In a lot of ways the Cabaret was the bridge between the 1970s, early 1980s—Ad Hoc Fiascos and Baltimore Oblivion Marching Band, Lambs Eat Ivy—and the whole continuum of artists and what came after in the 1990s,” Berndt says. “It was the kind of crucial venue that really kept a lot of different scenes alive.”

City Paper: What drew you to MICA? Laure Drogoul: Well, the Rinehart [School of Sculpture] program—and it was free at the time—and I was accepted. And I just kind of came by here and stopped in to look around—because I knew about Rinehart, it was pretty well known. It is an excellent program. So I stopped in, saw it, liked the train station, didn’t realize that once you were accepted it was a free program. And I was lucky enough to get accepted and then I moved. CP: Were you familiar with Baltimore much before that? LD: Not at all. Hadn’t even thought about Baltimore, which is an odd thing. CP: My earliest exposure to you was going to the Cabaret in 1989, but I have no real idea what your work was like leading up to that—what was your work like when you first got here and in the early 1980s? Were performance and installation always a part of what you did? LD: Oh yeah. Did you see Catherine Pancake’s film? CP: Yes. LD: You saw “Ha Hay Hay Hamburgers,” that was probably from 1984, I don’t remember what the dates were. CP: Was that at one of the Ad Hoc Fiascos?

LD: Yes. For the second one, I got a bunch of pygmy pigs and tried to put rabbit ears on them and ended up getting bites all over. But I was exposed to performance very early on.

That’s way before the kinetic thing. As a matter of fact, in the City Paper there’s a picture of me doing it in the harbor.

CP: Through what avenues? In school? LD: Primarily in school through different people. CP: I was curious because when you think about performance in America, when it’s written about in the early years, you think about key people in New York in the 1960s and ’70s or Paul McCarthy out west, so I was curious as to how it moved around, how people got exposed to it. LD: Well the big one was Joseph Beuys. He came to New York and did his thing. It was really fertile in the period, in the ’70s, I think, almost more than now in its radicalness. And I think its because it was kind of newer then. It’s a fairly new medium—well, you might say new. I had a professor, was taking class once in Newark, and he was an Italian and he was hanging upside down and eating a plate of spaghetti. And I remember thinking about that and different artists were living in trees for an extended period of time. And I remember telling my mother that and she said, “Oh that’s nothing, saints lived for 20 years in a tree” or something like that. But it’s all about context. This is this—that wasn’t performance. CP: That was just being Catholic. LD: Or whatever. Maybe it was a monastic thing, maybe pre-Christian. Who the hell knows? So when I came here I did a lot of film and video work and I started integrating video in my figurative work. So I had a couple of installations up in the early ’80s, some of them even when I was in school—like I did one in ’82 that incorporated video. And I took a film class at UMBC with Stan VanDerBeek. He was still alive and active at that time. When I moved here, I got involved with Richard Ellsberry, who was very active, tENTATIVELY a cONVENIENCE, I kind of made their acquaintance.

LAURE DROGOUL’S “WORKSHOP OF FILTHY CREATION.” to either become personas or just work on different aspects of projects, so you’re immediately out there looking around for a collaborators or conspirators and things like that. So I remember seeing a little flyer. Richard Ellsberry was doing a show at the [Mount Royal] Tavern. So I burnt up two little dresses and made it a happy birthday burning party in a framed box in there, and that was probably right when I got here. And from there, the Thanksgiving Day parade happened. I did a performance called the Vibro-Lounge up on 40th Street, that involved passive exercise equipment. I did a number of installations in the ’80s about body image, I did an installation at Second Story.

were just kind of doing our thing. CP: Were there live spaces for performance? LD: No, not really. There still aren’t, really.

CP: I was just curious because from talking to people here there always seems to have been a very healthy strand of socially interactive performance in Baltimore, and I didn’t know if that was partly a result of there not being a stable venue that catered to such, that it forced people into the streets, so to speak. LD: You know, people say that, but can you imagine what would have happened if there was a space? And I think we’re seeing some spaces now, so I wonder about that. But it was a new medium, and there FOR THE FULL still is this dearth of commerINTERVIEW cial art spaces in this city. WITH LAURE

CP: How so? What sort of activity was going on at the time? I ask because my only knowledge of that time comes from talking to people such as Richard or tENT or John Berndt, or reading tENT’s books, from people who lived here at the time. But that’s still a rather small group of people’s views of that time period. Was it easy to run into the people who were doing these sorts of things? LD: You just kind of meshed in with them. I think really early on I was at school working on a film project—and that’s the other thing, when you do something collaboratively, and I do a certain kind of work that requires other people

CP: Second Story Books? I remember one at 33rd and Greenmount briefly. LD: This was—I think it was called Second Story—on DROGOUL, VISIT Charles Street in what is now, CP: Was there at the time? CITYPAPER. COM/ARTS. I think, Sascha’s. Was that a LD: There was nothing. Well, Second Story Books? You’ll I think there must have been have to ask around. It was like [C.] Grimaldis. I don’t know a bookstore all over and you went down when he started, but it seemed pretty the stairs and then there was a bar down inaccessible to us. And even if you look and there was some spaces. And then I at the BMA, look at their collections met Nancy Andrews, I got involved with at that time. They were really focusthe gay community here.

that’s kind of exciting is you have film people, we have a sad dance scene because its so hard to have a company and actually pay people if you don’t have people that are going to be a real audience and go. But because of its size you got all these people doing things and they just collided on top of one another. And that is scale oriented, whether we could predict how the scene would be different or not different, I don’t know. A lot of it had to do with the characters involved, as well as the times. I remember tENTATIVELY popped the top off one of the fire hydrants and he had a whole party down there. Everyone just kind of got the word out, via telephone or whatever. Hey, there’s a party, let’s go. And I remember at the time being down at the [MICA] Station Building, because that’s where Rinehart was, and definitely spelunking in the train tunnel. And now, of course, its all chained off and everything. But we were definitely in there doing films and—it was definitely about exploring the city. It was very much about urban exploration. CP: What were some of your early performances? Did they start small and get more elaborate or were they so highly evolved from the start? Did the costumes come later? LD: Most of my—of, I did a lot of costumed things for sure. “Boat Dress” is another early one. That was from ’84. You saw the “Boat Dress” [in the movie]?

CP: This was in ’84? LD: ’84 or ’85. Maybe ’86. And what it is was, ‘Where’s your favorite place in Baltimore?’ And I did, ‘My favorite place is the Inner Harbor to take my Boat Dress out.’ I actually put my Boat Dress in the Inner Harbor and I remember thinking, I wonder what toxins are in here?, although I forget where we were. An artist at the time had made a catamaran. My ideas was to have a dress that would float. We had a boat launching and some of the footage [in the movie] was from that. But that was probably around the same time as the Thanksgiving Day parade, which was really the brainchild of Doug Retzler and Richard Ellsberry, because I remember seeing the flyer, ‘artists to ‘do this that and the other, so I said, OK. And I don’t know where that is specifically, to “Ha Hay Hay Hamburgers,” either. I know the knife that I had cutting the big turkey float, that was the piece that I made, I know I used the knife in the “Ha Hay Hay Hamburgers.” Things are always interchangeable. So a lot of my performances are really creating a space where events occur. So I did Miss Construct in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and then I did “Workshop of Filthy Creation,” which was, really, theater. And “Workshop” is a term that Dr. Frankenstein used after he created the Monster. Remember, the movies made Frankenstein a monster but, really, it’s really Dr. Frankenstein [who] creates this idealized human and he is lamenting it. And that’s where the bricks came from, too—because to me, the cinder blocks are like the weight of the guilt, a metaphor for guilt. I use them now with the waltz and that kind of end of the epic, the end of all politeness, so it changes a little bit. Even the knitting [installation], a long time ago I amplified the rocking chair and the knitting just as a manifestation of the Cult of Radical Marms, which is this kind of concept that I have of lionizing the unglamorous woman—the librarian, whatever. Because it seems like they’re always talking these targets that are completely glamorized, the Gertrude Steins. And to me, I always wanted to push forward the Margaret Meads, the people who were labeled scientists or not as known or celebrated as much for being as important to the culture at large. ■

careers in this intelligent, surprising French drama BY B R E T M CC A B E

THE SECRET OF THE GRAIN Directed by Abdel Kechiche OPENS MARCH 13 AT THE CHARLES THEATRE

SLIMANE BEIJI (HABIB BOUFARES) looks like a Tunisian Samuel Beckett. His silvery hair unflappably rests atop his narrow, well-lined face, and the rest of his body is just as reed thin but tenaciously durable, as befits his 35 years working the Sète shipyards on France’s Mediterranean coast. And he moves through writer/director Abdel Kechiche’s The Secret of the Grain with a steadfast statue’s gaze. At 61, his world-weary stare doesn’t flinch when he’s told that he can take cut-back hours or a severance package from work. It doesn’t falter during his after-work moped journey, stopping off to get berated/welcomed by his ex-wife, Souad (Bouraouïa Marzouk), his daughters Karima (Farida Benkhetache) and Olfa (Sabrina Ouazani), and his sons where they live in an unsightly housing flat. And it doesn’t change when he continues on to the hotel where he lives among other older Tunisian men, a boardinghouse owned by his current lover, Latifa (Hatika Karaouï), and where Slimane has become a surrogate father to Latifa’s 21-year-old daughter Rym (the arrestingly beautiful Hafsia Herzi).

get permits before granting a loan, while the city wants him to obtain funding first. And somehow, this odd combination of European film styles—the sweeping cinematic portrait with the sociopolitical essay—yields a disarmingly effective drama, one that always leave you feeling a little unbalanced. Kechiche maintains that off-kilter life by never entering or ending a scene—or the movie—at a natural pause. Everything begins and ends in the middle of something else: The movie opens during a boat tour of Sète’s harbors and cuts before it ever reaches a destination, and from then on every scene unfolds in an sharp cut.

At a very basic storytelling level, Grain offers a nearly textbook art-house/foreign-film look at a contemporary family’s foibles and the social and economic hardships they face. Seemingly mundane scenes—such as an extraordinarily busy dinner sequence showing everybody, save Slimane, sitting down to eat Souad’s couscous—subtly outline interper-

THE CHARLES THEATRE STARTS its Robert Altman repertory series with this madcap black comedy that announced his mercurial impishness from the very start of his creative peak. The then-45-year-old director followed up the breakout commercial and critical success of MASH with 1970’s Brewster McCloud, a frankly bizarre take on the Icarus allegory wrapped inside a serial killer investigation and, in many ways, a barbed entertainment satire. Brewster (baby-faced Bud Cort) is a loner who lives in a fallout shelter beneath Houston’s Astrodome, working as a chauffeur for the cantankerous, old Abraham Wright (an unidentifiable Stacy Keach), a younger brother to Orville and Wilbur. Brewster is steadily working on a pair of wings for himself—to fly away, naturally. And he’s aided, in modest ways, by a young woman who works at a health food store (Jennifer Salt) and the mysterious Louise (a finely subdued Sally Kellerman), a mother figure qua guardian angel, as evidenced by the scars on her back where wings may once have been. Of course, no Altman movie is so benignly linear, and swirling around Brewster’s flight plans are an array of idiosyncratic characters intersecting. A recent string of strangulation murders has caused wealthy city official Haskell Weeks (William Windom) to send for San Francisco’s super detective Frank Shaft (Michael Murphy in a role obviously modeled on Steve McQueen’s Bullit), whose acute police eye takes note that each victim had been covered in bird excrement. Shaft teams with beat cop Officer Johnson (John Schuck) in an investigation that begins to point toward Brewster, who has taken a shine to Astrodome tour guide Suzanne (a false-eyelash-rocking Shelley Duvall in her screen debut), kindling romantic/ sexual feelings in the young man that Louise warns him will lead to his downfall. Throughout, the Lecturer (Rene Auberjonois) delivers naturist observations about birds and birdlife, which becomes voice-over commentary on the story’s characters, events, and relationships. None of the above comes close to conveying the sheer lunacy of the movie’s spirit. If MASH was anarchic, Brewster is more so, if only because so much of Altman’s tangential jokes, satirical banalities, visual meanderings, and selfreferential asides take place not in the self-contained genre of a war movie gone berserk, but in something far more ordinary: a quasi-conventional crime movie set in the present that dryly pokes a bit of fun at then-recent entertainments (Bullit and those late-’60s movies that tried to bottle and/or skewer flower-power counterculture such as Lord Love a Duck and Skidoo) and which ends up feeling all the more surreal because of its allusive nature. All the eventual Altman hallmarks are here—the sprawling cast, the concatenating stories, the long-lens shots and patient camera—including the surreptitious curveball ending. Brewster McCloud, though, achieves one of his most existentially devastating closings outside Nashville with a coda that straddles the absurd and the tragic. The movie doesn’t have much to say, but it finds an emotional kernel that’s hard to shake. This movie isn’t available on DVD, so this series presents a far-too infrequent opportunity to see a print of this now cult title. (BM) citypaper.com

resurrects a 28-year-old recording made in a legendary Connecticut cemetery BY M A R C M A S T E R S

NEAR THE ENTRANCE to Evergreen Cemetery in New Haven, Conn., a pinkgranite tombstone bears a warning in pitch-black letters: THE PEOPLE SHALL BE TROUBLED AT MIDNIGHT AND PASS AWAY. Beneath lies the coffin of Mary E. Hart, who officially died of apoplexy at midnight on Oct. 15, 1872. But local legend claims that Hart was actually buried alive— and ever since, visitors who linger by her grave past its curfew are never seen again. In 1981, fully aware of these ghost tales, guitarist Loren Connors took his Gibson acoustic and a tape recorder to Hart’s tomb, and began to play. “It was a cold morning in early March,” he recalls over the phone from his apartment in Brooklyn, NY. “The crows were out. I might have seen one or two people, but generally no one else was there. It was kind of desolate.” After improvising for about a half hour, Connors wisely left the cemetery long before midnight, escaping the fate of legend. But the tape he made wasn’t so lucky. “It got kind of lost. I knew I had it somewhere but I couldn’t find it for years,” he explains. “I only made 10 copies of it at the time, and I’m not sure what I did with nine of them. But I did send one to Cadence Magazine, and they reviewed it. I didn’t know if they kept it, but recently a friend of mine asked them about it, and they copied it and gave it to him.” Last month, Family Vineyard released the rescued recording under the title The Curse of Midnight Mary, adding cover art of a dark, spectre-like figure painted by Connors himself. The music is even more haunting, filled with impulsive plucks, abrupt chords, and the guitarist’s stirring moans, inspired by dogs that howled outside his window at night. But even though the album often sounds spooky, it also courses

with immediate, joyful energy—a message from the past that still speaks loud and clear. For Connors, who is now best known for his electric guitar improvisations and collaborations with Jim O’Rourke, Alan Licht, and Jandek, hearing this recording almost three decades later was like stumbling upon his own ghost. “It’s a whole different person, that stuff,” he says. “I can’t even do that [kind of playing] now.” Yet the album fits well into Connors’ vast discography. At the time it was recorded, he had just finished releasing a series of “Unaccompanied Acoustic Guitar Improvisations” via his own Daggett label. They were equally influenced by abstract art—especially the work of his hero, Mark Rothko—and the raw blues of musical ancestors like Blind Willie Johnson. On Midnight Mary’s nine tracks (titled “Chants 1-9”), you can hear those influences continuing. Connors even veers into covers of Johnson’s “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” and the traditional “Amazing Grace.” Most unique is the chopping “Chant 9,” which sounds more like a war dance than a blues

improvisation. Overall, Midnight Mary feels more up front and animated than the Daggett material, as if the musical ghosts Connors was conjuring had suddenly become flesh. He chalks this up to the atmosphere provided by the cemetery. “All my other records at the time were done inside, and they have a kind of indoor echo on them,” he explains. “But this has a wide-open sound, with the crows and wind in the background. I think it was my best playing of that time, better than the records before. I should have done them all outside.” So if the aural advantages of this setting were not a particular motivation at the time, why did Connors decide to record in the graveyard? “I guess it was just a silly whim,” he admits. “I could say something else, but it would just be kind of made up.” So, outside of the inspired passion of the music, there’s little evidence that he felt the presence of ghosts that day. But an interview done not long after the recording suggests Connors was open to spirits, and the dangers of toying with them. “I just play, and whatever comes out just happened,” he told Cadence in August of 1982. “I need to play guitar and I don’t have the slightest fuckin’ idea where the hell it comes from. It’s just there and I just have to keep on directing it. If I stop and say to myself, Christ, look at how new this stuff is—sure as hell it will turn around and slap me.”

Mountains CHORAL TH RI L L JOCK EY

ELECTRO -ACOUSTIC duo Mountains does one thing rather well on Choral, its first album for Thrill Jockey. Strike that—two things. The first thing Brendon Anderegg and Koen Holtkamp excel at is slowly evolving and layering a few gossamer elements—a gently plucked guitar, a shimmering synth tone, the occasional wordless faux choral wash or tinkling bell—from a quiet preamble into a numinous drone, building in volume and complexity to a modest peak, then subsiding into a somnolent coda, long or short. The second thing Mountains does rather well, though less often, is start with the drone and work backward to the guitar. If that sounds like faint praise, it shouldn’t. The duo’s third album is undeniably gorgeous, a 21 st- centur y up dating of the kind of limpid prog Popol Vuh promulgated in the ’70s. Other than what sounds like pouring rain emerging from the mounting white noise that tails out “ Te l e s c o p e ,” A n d e r e g g a n d Holtkamp seem to have mostly skipped the “field recording” elements that distinguished previous Mountains releases, focusing on immaculate studio-bound suites. And immaculate they are, indeed, with each struck string, plain tive keyboard note, and ambient hum on tracks like “Map Table” or the prescriptively titled “Add Infinity” nestling into lapidary settings. The opening title track and “Melodica” even factor in the aforementioned wordless washes for an added heavenly effect. So Choral ravishes, but perhaps fails to transcend. Maybe it’s due to a musical version of Stendhal syndrome brought on by having one’s hushed-awe button pressed track after track. Maybe it’s the sneaking feeling that such button pressing is a sign of overreliance on quietly getting louder, the new quiet-loud-quiet of indie-music tropes. Many listeners will no doubt find sonic Shangri-La amid Choral ’s gently sloping peaks and valleys. Those less trusting of surface beauty will search on. (Lee Gardner) MARCH 11, 2009

It lets you down easy, which is a good thing—after 14 songs of this, you do start to feel a little imbecilic or caveman-ish, which, again, is sometimes how this stuff should be. (Michael Byrne)

CALEB AND SALEEM, OUTGROWN THESE WALLS (RASHUNOW PUBLISHING) Last year, WTMD-FM’s local music program Baltimore Unsigned embarked on an intriguing but risky project: pairing up two disparate musicians who’d never heard of each other for an unlikely collaboration. Twangy rock combo Caleb Stine and the Brakemen and hip-hop band Saleem and the Music Lovers come from different enough backgrounds to make adequately strange bedfellows, but when their respective frontmen got together, the common ground they found was surprisingly fertile. The four songs originally commissioned grew to 10, which were recorded live with an in-studio audience for an album. The first few songs on Outgrown These Walls betray their origins as an arranged collaboration, Saleem Heggins’ lyrics on “We Write Blue” and “Copy Write” both detailing the struggles and rewards of songwriting itself. But the former is also a perfect opener, the raspy grain of the rapper’s voice sounding strangely at home over Stine’s steady, circular acoustic riff. Heggins’ slow flow gradually accelerates to mirror a rush of inspiration, then winds back down when a phone call interrupts the work, and gives way to Stine’s deep drawl. So many rock/rap collaborations lean on either the novelty of culture shock, or the loudest each genre has to offer. But instead of combining chest-thumping rhymes and screaming guitar solos, Heggins and Stine are at their most contemplative throughout, to the point that when Stine plugs in an electric

THE CONVOCATION “MY HISTORY MYSTERY” B/W “FACE TO FACE WITH THE BEAST” (GRAVITY) Guitarist Tonie Joy has always known how to choke out a seductive, gnarled riff ever since exploring a postpunk musical life after Moss Icon’s early-’90s demise. And though it’s been a few minutes or years since the last Convocation release, this new 7-inch— recorded last summer in Baltimore with Jay Robbins and released on San Diego’s still active bulwark, Gravity Records—shows that no matter how long the hiatus, the Convocation’s tightly wound sound, equal parts hardcore needling and heavy-psych fumes, holds up well. This rhythm section—these days cofounding drummer George France and bassist Jason Dale Stevens—likes to find big grooves around Joy’s thick riffs and then muscle through them with a lumbering gait, leaving room for Joy’s eventual guitar workouts. If you took any one of Wayne Rogers’ Twisted Village guitar fireworks bands and slowed the pace down to a hot-knifed hashish burn, you’d get something akin to the Convocation’s brain massage. Side A’s “My History Mystery” reminds the mind about the band’s big-bore roar, but it’s the flip’s “Face to Face with the Beast” that really spotlights the Convocation’s patient throb. A feedback peal bends into a wahwahish opening riff that ignites a vibrating wall of a monolithic melody that underscores a defiant response to right now’s nightmarish consumer overload: “roadside billboards, high definition/ burned into the submissive retina . . . no more may be seconds away/ right now begins with/ the chance you have to take.” (Bret McCabe) ■ FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT GRAVITYREC.COM.

BOOKS CONFLICTING HISTORIES Laura Lippman mines fallible human

NONFICTION

PEOPLE ARE UNAPPEALING: EVEN ME BY SARA BARRON THREE RIVERS PRESS, PAPERBACK

memories in her latest mystery BY W E N DY WA R D

LAURA LIPPMAN’S FOURTH STAND-ALONE MYSTERY OPENS in a San Francisco bookstore on Valentine’s Day after a slimly attended book appearance. Author Cassandra Fallows’ first two books, both memoirs, succeeded in a healthy market for personal stories. Her tales of her loneliness as an only child, her father’s betrayal of her mother, and her failed first marriage, followed by multiple love affairs and eventually a second husband, gained her a fleetingly loyal audience that left her without a fan base after she published a third book, a novel. Lippman knows the bookstore reading, though she must be a stranger to an unsuccessful one these days. Her 2007 What the Dead Know was a New York Times bestseller, and she’s won multiple awards for her many Tess Monaghan mysteries. Her stand-alones display her awesome skill at spinning an intriguing yarn without a steady main character. Then again, Baltimore has always been there in the background, though her love for the city never feels unconditional. She’s never been afraid to show its underbelly; murder is her bread and butter, after all.

and how Fallows digs and asks questions and takes notes as though an investigator, although she’s not—Fallows isn’t even a reporter. Yes, Fallows is basically doing investigative reporting, but remember, her strength was found in memoir writing, which is not the same as journalism. And what a job Lippman does dovetailing previously published passages from Fallows’ memoirs about her girlhood spent with Calliope and three other girls— now women she must realign with to get information—with Fallows’ time with her now older parents and scenes from

of the city, Smalltimore’s ability to lose people for years only to suddenly place them face to face over and over again once the dam of obscurity is broken. Life Sentences moves with the awareness that the lost never stays lost and the hidden is unable to hide in plain sight forever. Fallows’ search to discover who Calliope was—and is now after serving her time in jail— is to construct a book based on cause and effect. Calliope and the other four girls were this way and now they are who they are: author, housewife, graphic artist, pillar of a megachurch, and druggie mom who lost two children. But Fallows’ former friends have read her memoirs and disagree with her version of history. Her di-

LIPPMAN ACCURATELY DESCRIBES SMALLTIMORE’S ABILITY TO LOSE PEOPLE FOR YEARS ONLY TO SUDDENLY PLACE THEM FACE TO FACE OVER AND OVER AGAIN. But the main mystery in Life Sentences—and there is more than one—isn’t, for sure, a murder. Fallows’ career may be dying: No one interested in her personal life wanted to delve into her imagination and buy her last book. She couldn’t blame them—Fallows herself wasn’t sure what her next writing endeavor would be, until the television news cycle referenced Baltimore and the decade-old case of Calliope Jenkins. Accused of killing her missing infant son, Jenkins plead the fifth and paid for her silence with seven years in prison. Turns out, Fallows went to the same school as Jenkins. The author now had her fourth book’s subject matter and a way to write about her history afresh. Lippman carefully builds a mystery out of the old story

other character’s perspectives. Teena Murphy tried to break Calliope down when she was a police investigator; now she works at Nordstrom and drinks box wine every night. Calliope’s first lawyer Gloria Bustamante is unable and unwilling to help. And Fallows former friends Donna, Tisha, and Fatima each have their own lives and secrets to keep. O f c o u r s e, B a l t i m or e — complete with it’s own scarred racial history, neighborhood lines, good restaurants, and faulty social services—is the novel’s other main character. Lippman writes what she knows, and she accurately describes the emotions stirred up by driving through streets changed after a long absence, the views of buildings and waterways seen from a train window heading north out

vorced parents factor in her first two books, too, but it is Fallows who questions those memories. A side story—one that relies on Baltimore’s history— is the tale of how her father met the woman he would leave his wife and daughter for during the race riots of 1968. Fallows was always daddy’s girl—her debut is titled My Father’s Daughter— but did she give the tale too much weight, her mother not enough credit, her father too much? Life Sentences contains so many different personal histories that the story often cloverleafs around itself, and as the complicated story unravels, you never feel exactly sure what the truth is. And Lippman knows how to grab your attention while keeping you guessing. â–

SARA BARRON HAS WRITTEN ONE OF THOSE books that force readers to make a choice: Either you’re willing to find the humor in a young Jewish woman talking about getting diarrhea after meeting John Stamos and suffering through Schindler’s List or you’re not. For those willing to go on this adventure, welcome. Everybody else, please continue on to the “S� section of the bookstore, where you’ll find the milquetoast humor of David Sedaris, to whom Barron will undoubtedly be compared. Sure, Barron uses her upbringing and family as characters, as well as recounts her young misadventures in moving to New York to study acting and trying to break into the business, then stand-up, then as a Coyote Ugly bartender/dancer, all while supporting herself working in retail hell and waiting tables and dating the wrong, wrong men. Yes, People Are Unappealing is basically a surviving-my-20s memoir, but at no time do you ever get the impression that Barron craves approval. Attention and potential fame? Yes, she admits as much. But take the title at face value: Despite all the neurotic, needy, borderline pathological, sexually odd, over the top, and outright weird people that run through her life that she recounts here, she firmly, and comfortably, places herself right smack in the midst of such company. Everyday freaks aren’t merely punchline fodder for superiority humor in Barron’s mind; freaks help celebrate the deviant life that runs through every facet of American society and are as common as the cold. That’s not to say that Barron doesn’t establish boundaries: peeing on a hot mini-Denzel Washington because he asks, yes; unwittingly eating the clipped toenails of a college dorm mate, no. Such boundaries may sound like gray areas, but it’s to Barron’s credit that she’s very clear about how they’re established. A sincere love for the most sensitive quirks in those closest to her— her father’s love for showtunes, her mother’s almost offensively stereotypical cheapness, her albino friend Maggie’s wonderful inability to prevent whatever is going on in her head from coming out of her mouth—shape the young woman recounting these stories. Barron came by her sensibility the natural way: through public embarrassments, private psychological near horrors, and good, oldfashioned family love. That she possess a good pen for breezy narrative and a welltuned awareness of the line separating the everyday absurd from the entirely too-much-personal-information-toshare-in-your-out-loud-voice helps, but even better is the shameless glee with which she crosses that line again and again and again and again—such as using her FUPA as a recurring motif. (That’s “fat upper pussy area,� for the record.) Barron is still young, so who knows if there’s more where this came from. As long as she doesn’t lose the awareness that she’s just as appealingly unappealing as the people she’s come across, though, her 30s may be just as entertaining. (Bret McCabe)

QUICK SKETCHES THE PROSPECTOR L ast fall New Orleans launched one of the largest biennials in North America in Prospect.1. Including over two dozen venues scattered throughout the city and some 80 artists from around the world—from established Americans such as Sanford Biggers and Trenton Doyle Hancock to international stars such as British video artist Isaac Julien, the New York-based Iranian video artist Shirin Neshat, and LED light artist Tatsuo Miyajima—the project was started post-Katrina by curator Dan Cameron in 2005, when he was the senior curator of the New Museum of Contemporary Art. Cameron, a longtime New Orleans visitor and fan, conceived Prospect.1 as an integrated world-class art event and economic boost to the city, and has a history of high-concept, largescale exhibitions, curating 2003’s 8th Istanbul Biennial and serving as one of the curators at the Taiwan’s 2006 Taipei Biennial. Cameron, currently the visual arts director at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, comes to MICA’s Falvey Hall March 12 to deliver a lecture about Prospect.1 and the cultural impact it had on the city. Sponsored by the Contemporary Museum and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Contemporary members and all students get in free; otherwise there’s a $10 admission.

NEAL REINALDA’S “NOT REALLY ANYTHING AT ALL” (INSTALLATION VIEW).

THIS IS NOT A PIPE Group show not really in the place where you see it BY K AT E N O O N A N

PROPOSITIONS THROUGH MARCH 29 AT AREA 405

HOW DO YOU CALL ATTENTION TO a placeless space? That’s the question recent MICA graduate Stephen Dewyer attempts to answer in his first curatorial effort, Propositions at Area 405. This intriguing and thoughtful group exhibition— featuring the works of regional artists Ding Ren, Neal Reinalda, Glenn Shrum, and Elena Volkova—is both intellectually challenging and curiously entertaining. The concept of the placeless space was not limited to the exhibition’s ideation and installation, it was also integral to the communications that formed it. Mentioned in the catalogue by Dewyer and artists Ren and Shrum, e-mail and the internet played a vital role in transferring ideas and, indeed, actually constructing the works of art. E-mail allowed Dewyer and Ren to trade ideas, gave Shrum the platform to solicit and collect materials, and the internet provides a permanent home to this ephemeral, site-specific exhibition. In the dark space of A rea 405’s sprawling galleries, Shrum’s instal-

lation, “Voltage Drop,” employs a carefully chosen light source to highlight the places between spaces. Although it first appears as a haphazard arrangement of multicolored electrical cords draped over a piece of exposed pipe, “Voltage Drop” reveals itself as a precisely constructed, almost scientific study in dimension when viewed from all sides. The electrical cords, which Shrum collected from friends after sending out a mass e-mail, connect in a serpentine line to power the room’s only artificial light source. Emitting a crisp white light over the strewn cords, the single beam produces a clear line that travels across the positive

and negative spaces when viewed from the side. When viewed from behind the spotlight, however, the wires form a precise, V-shaped tunnel. The work is carefully metered, fragile, and ephemeral: One clumsy move and the effect would be ruined. Where Shrum plays with the representation of space through light, Ding Ren takes an etymological focus. Her humorous and inquisitive, “The Map Is Not the Territory,” installed throughout Area 405’s two rooms, is comprised of small framed plaques illustrating real geographic locations and accompanied by succinct written

where the paint had chipped away. Since Ren did not create these markings herself, but came upon them incidentally, “The Map” causes both artist and viewer to take on the role of explorer: Ren discovers and identifies the “locations” and you find them once more throughout the gallery. Without Ren’s assigned cartographical identities, these rusty spots would simply be eyesores. But accompanied by their authoritative placards, they gain a weighty significance, that points out both the power and the preposterousness of language: Geographic features always exist, but it is not until they

His “Not Really Anything at All” manipulates language in a playful manner. Installed on the floor, the piece is sculpted from Styrofoam and coated with faux rock spray paint to form the letters that spell out its title. Funny yet contemplative, it asks you to decide what is real and what is not: This art object claims to be nothing and is constructed from one material masquerading as another, occupying the space between real and constructed identities. In “7UP”, a two-part piece of installation and sly performance art, Reinalda blurs the borders between exhibition and observation. During the exhibition opening, guests were served 7UP soda, while the found-object installation—a clock with the “7” pointing upward—hung almost imperceptibly on the wall. A sort of incognito art, Reinalda’s work feels like an inside joke: fun if you know it’s there, but unremarkable if you aren’t hip to its meaning. Elena Volkova’s “Window Project” is equally understated. Camouflaged by the monochromatic dinginess that pervades the decaying space, the installation is almost unnoticeable until “Window Project” slowly exposes itself: Digital photo prints mounted on invisible fishing line hang over selected panes of the gallery’s walled-in windows. Panel by panel, you’re forced to distinguish the real glass window panes from their paper doppelgangers and, suddenly, you are confronted with the notions of representation and reality. Volkova, who regularly explores the idea of both physical and conceptual borders in her work, seeks to blur them here as the lines between what is real and what is not intersect and grow fuzzy.

MISE-EN-SCÈNE

THROUGH MARCH 15 AT PAPERWORK GALLERY

THE ORGANIZING THEME of Paperwork Gallery’s three-person exhibition is spelled out in the ambiguities of the title: Mise-en-scène translates as “putting on stage” and in film criticism typically refers to aspects of visual style, from how directors choose to block shots to the entire visual material that populates the screen. It’s a definition and loose term that applies to the ideas behind the works of Lillian Bayley Hoover, Guillaume Pallat, and Audrey Collins Petrich gathered here, even though each artist is visually different. Each, however, creates an artistic reality inspired by an observable reality, even though none traffics in realism, per se. Of the trio, the three paintings from local artist Hoover are the most familiar, as her work and distinctive approach has appeared in a variety of group shows over the past few years. Hoover favors a vibrant palette and subdued lines, leaving the edges in her paintings soft and diffuse. It’s a choice that gives the subject a wisp of the ephemeral, the way soft focus often connotes 30 | city paper

A DIGITAL PRINT FROM GUILLAUME PALLAT’S “PERVERSION” SERIES. some distorted time or place in a movie. That Hoover frequently applies this technique to render superficially banal scenes makes her paintings a tad nebulous. Intentionally so, you imagine: Hoover’s imagery often starts as a photograph or a staged setting of toys, which she realistically renders in her sure hand. In “Stop,” a white man and woman stand at a presumable sheltered bus stop, with the image of a darker-skinned woman inspecting a bird’s cage sitting where an advertising poster is usually found in real life. Snatches of a darkening blue sky come through the background treeline, suggesting the scene is taking place as a summer day slowly turns into night. He’s expressionless with his hands in his pockets. She’s expressionless with one hand on her purse strap and another on her hip, defiant elbow sticking out. Why the scene feels so fraught with a threat of imminent disruption is hard to say. Hoover’s recent paintings flirt with the façade of realism somewhat like Robert Longo and Jennifer Bartlett, artists who recognized a infelicity in realistic representation and had little use for it. Hoover’s works don’t feel quite as aggressive, as her ultimate effect feels to create a non-specific unease rather than frontal attack on sensibility. In “Transfixed” and “Barracks,” that mood in conveyed almost entirely by cropping. A man’s socked feet in “Barracks” stand at attention beside a cot,

and the title alone suggests a military setting. A crack of orange-yellow light creeps in from the left, casting his shadow across the nearby cot, and the focus on the feet encourages the brain to imagine what is going on out of the frame from which the gazing set of eyes choose to look away. Petrich stages outright realities with her two installations. Each one contains three elements— a diorama, a “relic case,” and an embroidery badge—that documents some kind of scene. In the “Night Fishing” diorama, an old truck parks beside a small tree-lined pond, the truck’s headlights on. The red velvet-lined relic case contains a rod and reel and a plastic American freshwater eel. The badge features a curved eel between two trees against a round sky-blue background. As a set, the installations nostalgically freeze a moment in time, perhaps a very personal one, to which the artist has created mini-monuments. They feel like natural history exhibits, the relic cases trapping in glass some element of the past to preserve its memory, the badge becoming a keepsake to hang on the wall in remembrance, the diorama the physical setting of the memory. They’re both incredibly well achieved and executed, but they feel so quaint that any emotional content gets blunted by the preciousness. They feel like reading only a passage of somebody’s diary, a paragraph littered with emotive adjectives and strong feelings, but with no context for the

volatile emotions conveyed therein. Baltimore-based French artist Pallat offers the most insouciantly strong work here. For the seven digital prints in his “Perversion” series exhibited here, he stages nigh pornographic postures with pose-able, somewhat anatomically correct toy dolls and then photographs them against the corporate logos that dot roadsides. The dolls are placed so close to the lens that they’re blurry, rather like the imprecise but suggestive imagery of a scrambled pre-digital cable signal, but the mere hint of what’s going on is more than enough. Hence, a woman performing fellatio on a man with a Hess station and Coca-cola truck in the background, a veritable orgy in front of Ikea, and something that appears to require a high degree of flexibility in front of a car lot that promises “easy easy credit.” They make an obvious point—what’s more perverse: the sexual acts or the rampant calls to consumption behind them?—but do so with such cheeky indifference. The sex acts don’t really offend, because they can barely be made out—and they involve dolls, feeling like the imaginative play of a curious pubescent child. The background scenes—sharply in focus but otherwise innocuous, and could come from Any Street, USA—would be positively banal without the blurry foreground activity. Separately boring, but jointly specious, Pallat’s images’ mise-en-scène benefits with deadpan aplomb from their creative mise en place. ■

STAGE THE QUEEN Not just another tale of lust and murder

OPENINGS It’s a big week for openings, as three of the best local theaters each debut their new works. Center Stage takes on John Ford’s early 17th-century revenge tragedy ’Tis Pity She’s a Whore with Center Stage artistic director Irene Lewis directing the production. It opens March 11 and runs through April 5. The Everyman Theatre tackles a veritable modern classic in Anton Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, starring resident company members Megan Anderson, Deborah Hazlett, Rosemary Knower, Wil Love, Carl Schurr, and Stan Weiman and directed by Everyman artistic director Vincent Lancisi. It opens March 18 and runs through April 26. Down in Federal Hill, the Performance Workshop Theatre presents the one-man production Ages of Man: Selections from Shakespeare by Sir John Gielgud, directed by PWT co-founder Marlyn G. Robinson and starring PWT cofounder and local acting powerhouse Marc Horwitz. It opens March 13 and runs through April 11.

THE CORONATION OF POPPEA By Claudio Monteverdi, librettist G.F. Busenello, English translation by Arthur Jacobs, performing edition by Alan Curtis PRESENTED BY OPERA VIVENTE MARCH 12 AND 14 AT EMMANUEL EPISCOPAL CHURCH

THE ORGANIZING THEME TO OPERA VIVENTE’S current season is “nice guys finish last,” a sly acknowledgement that it’s spotlighting some of opera’s bad boys this year—such as Nero, the Roman Emperor at the heart of Claudio Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea, currently in production. History remembers this emperor for his tyranny and decadence, and here Nero (David Korn) doesn’t disappoint. He sleeps with a woman not his wife, sentences Seneca to death, and coldly kills a poet with a dagger to the back. W h e n i n M o n t e v e r d i ’s R o m e , t houg h , t he women l ie, sc heme, and manipulate as well as the men, and they get all the plummy roles in Poppea, particularly the titular heroi ne. Poppea (A h Hong) is the woman with whom Nero has been consor ting, ignoring his empress Ottavia (Katherine Drago) and her shirking to the undying adoration of O t tone (Mon ica Rei nagel). The spurned Ottavia commands Ottone to murder Poppea, which his new love, Drusilla (Lisa Dodson), helps him with by lending him her clothes to sneak in. Even Poppea’s nurse Arnalta (a superb Karim Sulayman) isn’t above a little plotting, planting ideas in Poppea’s head about never trusting an emperor as a lover. Opera Vivente’s home in the second-floor Great Hall of the Emmanuel Episcopal Church offers a nearly ideal

A second elevated stage area, sitting atop two columns and semi-framed by a large laurel wreath, anchors the faux marble stage at the rear of stage left. Both areas multitask as rooms, sleeping or sitting areas, and podium platforms. The small orchestra flanks either side of the stage. Poppea’s nine-piece orchestra is the early-music ensemble Harmonius Blacksmith conducted by Joseph Gascho, and its specific instrumentation—two Baroque violins, two recorders, a rich theorbo and Baroque guitar, Baroque cello, viol da Gamba, Baroque harp, and harpsichord— provides the work’s sprightly score. This score is never overwhelming but very mercurial, with some melodies borne of light and airy plucked strings and others more heavy and solemn. Musically, Poppea sounds rather diverse, with no apparent central leit-

ALSO OPENING THIS WEEK: Fluid Movements’s Easy Roller, a “courtroom drama on wheels,” runs March 14 (7 and 9 p.m.) and 15 (7 p.m. only) at the Roosevelt Recreation Center.

And Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey return to Baltimore with their Trixie and Monkey’s Mumbo March 18-21 at the Theatre Project.

intimidation; when he kills the poet Lucano (Frédéric Rey), Nero touches the blood and applies it to his face and bare chest like a fascinated child first discovering cake frosting. Better yet, Nero summons or dismisses his guards with an impudent wave of his hand, as if disinterestedly swatting flies from the air. But its Hong’s Poppea and Sulayman’s Arnalta that steal this show. Their duets and solos are blithe and witty, with Hong making Poppea a sensuously ambitious woman and Sulayman turning Arnalta into a one-woman comic foil. It helps that Arnalta gets some of the opera’s best lines, whether it be warning Poppea about falling into bed with

an emperor, or giddily celebrating her own rise in stature as Poppea becomes Nero’s empress. Tall and unafraid to use his expressive face, Sulayman quickly became a crowd favorite, and even her wordless background cavorting with Nero’s guards as Nero and Poppea lie together earned a few chuckles from the audience. A n d s o m e h o w, O p e r a V i v e n t e makes this 1642 work feel fresh. Do note that it’s an epic three hours and 20 minutes long, but it moves surprisingly briskly, and its structure—as an argument between Vir tue and Fortune over who is the better goddess before Love breaks in to blow his own horn—gives the story a rather modern and ironic twist. Roman history buffs will remember that Nero was Poppea’s fourth husband, as she married and connived her way up the social ladder until she became empress. Love, indeed, conquers all. ■ citypaper.com

BURGER MASTER A new upscale hamburger joint lives up to half of its name

“Turkish Delight . . . Cazbar is a smart looking restaurant” - City Paper

MOST FOLKS WOULD CALL FEDERAL HILL’S Abbey Burger Bistro (1041 Marshall St., [443] 4539698) a bar. A handsome bar with dining tables, a gastropub, if you must, but a bar nonetheless. So if you’re looking for moules frites, faux French, and that certain je ne sais quoi that the use of “bistro” connotes, you won’t find it here. What you will find, however, as the other, sensible, part of the restaurant’s name suggests, are burgers. Lots of them. Made from different animals (and vegetables), topped with all matter of garnishes, and served up with homemade chips or fries in black-and-white-checkered-waxpaper-lined baskets. If this sounds a little gimmicky, think of it as upscale fast food for grownups.

MARCH 11, 2009

Gourmet burgers run a close second to mac ‘n’ cheese as the restaurant comfort food of the moment, but unlike mac ‘n’ cheese, I’ve yet to tire of a well-prepared burger (although enough with the sliders already; they’ve had their five minutes of fame, thank you very much.) Of course, a burger appeals to that basic carnivorous desire for meat, but playing with the basics by changing up the meat and toppings adds even more to the pleasure, and Abbey impresses with its range. Beef burgers—there are only three of them— are made from locally raised Roseda beef. The remaining burgers cull from the rest of the barnyard—chicken, turkey, lamb, and bison—as well as from the garden, and the menu offers a BLT, a grilled cheese, and slider dogs, plus salads and chili for the burger-averse. The menu also advises no substitutions, but servers come to

citypaper.com

But even without the drippy egg, this burger was succulently moist. When we removed the cocktail pick stuck through a garlic-stuffed olive, the hamburger’s rare juices bubbled up through top of the English muffin. A lamb burger ($9), on the other hand, benefited from a crunchy sprinkle of cucumber and a swirl of yogurt, but the overall mildness of the meat coupled with overcooking disappointed. Lamb can taste much better than this. But if the lamb burger needed a little more, the foie gras burger—more Roseda beef topped with sautéed onions and lobes of foie gras—needed a little less. In theory, the whole notion of foie gras on a burger is ridiculously decadent (and the $19 price tag reflects this); in practice, it is even more so. Neither the flavor of the onions nor the grainy mustard that garnished the burger overwhelmed the foie gras, but the whole effect of the pairing is more texture rather than flavor, with the foie gras importing a silky, earthy tinged essence to the burger. If you can finish one without beginning to feel ill, you’re a heartier eater than I. This is rich stuff, folks. Burgers come with crispy, house-made chips, which we preferred to the standard sweet potato fries (you can also order regular fries), and the size and substance of the sandwiches should make ordering anything else unnecessary. But if you crave more carbs, the waffle fry nachos ($6)—waffles fries smothered in the usual nacho toppings including a tangy chili, black beans, avocado slices, and fresh, sliced jalapenos—are a beguiling, tasty mess of a dish we kept nibbling compulsively. “They’d make good hangover food,” someone at our table aptly pointed out. Desserts at Abbey include a variety of grown up spiked milkshakes in flavors like chocolate banana or chocolate peanut butter, as well as several ice cream-based desserts, like an uninspired, but serviceable brownie sundae ($4). The restaurant also has an impressive beer list with a variety of domestic and international beers available on draft and in bottle, but inclusion of even the most basic descriptor (i.e., lager or strong ale, etc) would go a long way in making the list easier to navigate, as would the inclusion of prices. I appreciate that the beer menu changes frequently, but two of the three servers that waited on us gave us incorrect information about the style of beer we ordered. If the cheese list can include

THE WHOLE NOTION OF FOIE GRAS ON A BURGER IS RIDICULOUSLY DECADENT. the tall four tops in the brick dining room toting clipboards with checklists for building-yourown burger—from meat to garnish to type of bread, so you can have it your way. We opted, however, to order our burgers from the list of house specialties and began at the top with Harry’s Bistro Burger ($9), a beef burger that included bacon, Lincolnshire Cheddar cheese, and a fried egg, sunnyside up, on an English muffin. Eggs are popping up on burgers all over the place, a double decker of protein that’s sturdy and creamy at the same time; if you like your burgers messy, this guarantees it.

place of origin, there’s no reason the beer list can’t as well. The snugness of the Abbey’s two small rooms might make it a liability once folks shake off winter and start looking for a place to eat after Orioles’ games, so this might be the time to make a beeline for Federal Hill, grab a burger and a beer and get in touch with your inner Wimpy. ■ Open daily for dinner and for lunch Tuesday through Sunday.

EATS & DRINKS MIDDLE EASTERN HELMAND In flavor, price, and mood, dining approaches perfection. The elegant Afghan food reflects India’s influence, with a minor-key hint of the Middle East. Meat dishes and vegetarian ones are both superb; some items, such as silky, leek-filled aushak, can come either way. Try the pumpkin. 806 N. Charles St., (410) 752-0311. KABOB HUT The plain yogurt tastes really good, and the bread-baking is a show in itself. Then there are the succulent Persian-style chicken and beef kebabs. Douse the chicken with walnut-pomegranate fessenjan. 13 Allegheny Ave., Towson, (410) 821-8005. LEBANESE TAVERNA Washington’s Middle-Eastern restaurant chain moves into ritzy Harbor East, and the glamorous but somber new digs threaten to overwhelm the preparations, the best of which are vegetable-based. Chicken and lamb dishes feel just slightly sleepy, but the pita bread—white and whole wheat—is the best in town. 719 S. President St., (410) 244-8681. ORCHARD MARKET AND CAFÉ The area’s first Persian restaurant. Perhaps a little of the exquisiteness left with the original owner, but it’s still warm, inviting, and capable of delighting with the precisely thought-out and aromatic food. Anything with pomegranates is especially worth investigating. 8815 Orchard Tree Lane, Towson, (410) 339-7700. PARSA KABOB The exotic dÊcor serves as a visual appetizer for the menu’s Persian delights. Vegetarians will delight in Parsa Kabob’s extensively meat-free menu, but meat lovers will love the classic kebab e kubideh, nicely spiced ground sirloin served with made-just-for-you-from-scratch pita bread, warm and soft and irresistible. 74 Cranbrook Road, Cockeysville, (410) 683-7411. SIDE STREET CAFÉ Lunch-counter basics mix with Middle Eastern food in a charming suite of rooms. Kebabs are nothing special, but soups are, especially spicy minestrone or cream of potato. The chicken cheese steak is great. 10921 York Road, Cockeysville, (410) 329-1106.

TABRIZI’S The cursed location meets the return of the chef. Michael Tabrizi, whose Middle Eastern/ Mediterranean restaurant in Federal Hill helped usher in the open-kitchen era, is back, now at Harborview, which finally looks like someplace you’d want to be—on a busy evening, there’s potential swank. Pan-seared tenderloin stripes are a best bet, but the signature platter for two, an appetizer, better reveals Tabrizi’s attention to the minutest detail. 500 Harborview Drive, (410) 727-3663.

KATHMANDU KITCHEN Nepalese joint doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t inflame passion. The best time to go may be the lunch buffet; there diners might be able to divine what distinguihses Nepalese from Indian food. In the evening, the ambience feels overly somber. 22 W. Allegheny Ave., Towson, (410) 847-9595. KUMARI Kumari serves Tibetan food and Nepalese versions of familiar Indian cuisine (this variation is typically less rich, the spicing less complex). The modest Nepalese cuisine offered is less than lifechanging. Lunch buffet, of course. 911 N. Charles St., (410) 547-1600.

PA N - A S I A N JASMINE ASIAN BISTRO Ambitious Towson restaurant covers nearly the whole of Asia, with samplings from Thailand, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, and Singapore. The pan-Asian (plus sushi, plus fusion) approach makes ordering tricky, but vegetarian and vegan entrĂŠes come off best. 510 York Road, (410) 296-9118. NOODLES CORNER Nothing tops 10 bucks. Shrimp lovers will revel in crispy shrimp ball or pine-nut shrimp. Noodles, like the setting, are soothing, and you can afford to try a variety. 8865 Stanford Blvd., Columbia, (410) 312-0088. PACIFIC RIM Soothing ambiance on York Road. Fusion-y Peking duck fajitas, however, leave you craving either real fajitas or real Peking duck. Less Western-inflected fusion fare works better: fresh and artful tempura, or seared Dynamite Maki with creamy sauce. 9726 York Road, Cockeysville, (410) 666-2336. SUSHI-SAN/THAI JAI DEE If you look for complexity in Thai cuisine, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find it mostly absent here. The sushi and sashimi were adroitly

ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S EASY TO FORGET THAT PRETZELS ARE BAKED GOODS, given the dry twigs passed off in snack-sized bags and the tasteless loops of wheat-based insulation that constitute the average â&#x20AC;&#x153;softâ&#x20AC;? pretzel. But at the Pennsylvania Dutch Market near Hunt Valley (open Thursday-Saturday only) soft pretzels are a destination food. The Lancaster County Pretzels stall hand-makes goldenbrown pretzels ($1.39 each) right before your eyes, brushing them with butter and sprinkling them with salt; the result is something like a thin savory doughnut with a buttery crust, an invitation to gorge (a half dozen goes for $7.31, a dozen for $13.25). Cinnamon sugar, garlic salt, and other alternate toppings are available at slightly higher price points, but they improve nothing. Small meat-stuffed â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretzel logsâ&#x20AC;? take the sublime to the nearly ridiculous for something nominally more like breakfast or lunch. The sausage and cheese log ($2.65) fills a yielding fresh pretzel tube with the real crumbly country stuff and tangy cheese, while the chipped steak log ($2.65) oozes with tender beef, slightly sweet barbecue sauce, and yet more cheese. Unbelievable. Real fresh-squeezed lemonade ($1.14 small, $1.30 medium, $1.75 large), too. (Lee Gardner)

Sure, you can get Italian-style pizza, but why would you when spicy hummus, creamy and smoky baba ganouj, kefta burgers, and dolmas? Don’t miss pistachio and rosewater baklava. 745 E.

TRY’S ASIAN FUSION Sure, usually too many Asian cuisines on one menu is a bad sign. Not at this strip-mall winner, where Thai curries have floral tones and steaming Korean hot pots use flavorful meats. Such oddities as duck’s tongue, steamed whole eel, and murex, a conch-like sea creature, show Try’s willingness to move the ball forward. 3755 Old Court Road, Pikesville, (410) 580-9004.

SUSAN LOWE

CAMM SHORTS

7 P.M., Creative Alliance at the Patterson, 3134 Eastern Ave., (410) 276-1651, creativealliance. org, free. A part of John Waters’ Dreamland team of artists, freaks, and those somewhere in between, Susan Lowe was out in front of his camera in 10 of Waters’ films, from 1969’s Mondo Trasho all the way up to 2000’s Cecil B. DeMented. But more than a talent onscreen, Lowe is a Baltimore fixture with her toothy and ready smile, dance moves, intensely encouraging and optimistic attitude, and sharp wit. Her exhibit Nuthouse Drawings hangs at the CA through April 4 and she stops by tonight to discuss her crazy Crayola portraits and, we hope, her colorful life. (Wendy Ward)

8 P.M., Creative Alliance at the Patterson, 3134 Eastern Ave., (410) 276-1651, creative alliance.org, $10, members $8, members' happy hour starts at 7 P.M. with snacks, cheap drinks, and the best seats in the house. Sure, we're up Creative Alliance's butt this week, but they have terrific timing. Their short film screening tonight ("Dating License" and "Cleaning Law" by local Rod Lopez; the music video "Elle S'Appelle Jolie" set in Fells Point by Carr Kizzier; "Pickup and Return" by New Yorker Alex Johnson) dovetails nicely with City Paper's first short film contest Shoot. Score. Baltimore. Go to citypaper.com/go/shortfilmcontest for details; deadline is April 24. (WW)

THURSDAY 12

SATURDAY 14

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL’S KOOZA Through April 5, Under the Grand Chapiteau in Lot O at M&T Bank Stadium, 700 W. Ostend St., (800) 678-5440, cirquedusoleil.com, $38.50-$220. According to press materials, this Cirque du Soleil show follows a “melancholy loner” called the Innocent as he interacts with other subtly named characters like the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist, who apparently has an ill-behaving pooch called Bad Dog. But, let’s be honest, you’re not dropping serious cash on Kooza tickets for the story. You’re going for the crazy costumes, the lush pageantry, and most of all the how-the-fuck-isthat-even-possible? acrobatics. On that score, Cirque rarely disappoints. In this performance you can check out an act nonchalantly called ”balancing on chairs” that actually involves a performer contorting himself on a 23-foot-high tower of chairs, as well as Cirque’s artsy intricate takes on high wire, trapeze, and the wheel of death. (Anna Ditkoff)

FLUID MOVEMENT’S EASY ROLLER: A COURTROOM DRAMA ON WHEELS 7 and 9 P.M. Saturday, 7 P.M. Sunday, Roosevelt Recreation Center, 1221 W. 36th St., fluid movement.org, $10. From a water ballet version of War and Peace to a biography of Freud told in bellydance, Fluid Movement has developed its own unique kind of performance-art-meets-amateur-stage-production-surrealism. You can sort of imagine the conversations beforehand—“Hey, let’s put on a water ballet about Charles Darwin!”—but somehow these talented regular folks keep pulling it off. This time FluMoo is at the Hampden Rec. Center for something that seems to involve roller skates, the Amish, and the basic plot of Footloose, which, yeah, doesn’t really make any more sense when you read the rest of the press release, but if past shows are any guide, that’s beside the point—they’re just there to have fun, and after 10 years, show no signs of growing up. (Chris Landers)

TUESDAY 17

ST. PATRICK’S DAY SUNDAY 15

ST. PATRICK’S DAY PARADE AND SHAMROCK 5K 1:15 P.M. race, 2 P.M. parade, Charles and Franklin streets, irishparade. net, free. Everybody is Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day, no? And when you’re feeling Irish, no doubt the first thing that comes to mind is . . . running? Sadly, registration is now closed for the 5K Shamrock run, meaning if you’re not already among the 4,000 registered runners you’ll merely have to join the parade watchers, who stretch from Mount Vernon’s Wa s h i n g t o n M o n u m e n t d o w n Charles Street and east on Pratt to the Inner Harbor. And standing and watching a parade, let’s admit, is a much more civilized way to enjoy a pint of Guinness and quarter-gill of John Powers. (Bret McCabe)

MONDAY 16

TCM’S GUEST PROGRAMMER: JOHN LANDIS 8 P.M., Turner Classic Television, Comcast cable channel 28, “free” if you’re shelling out $57/month to Comcast for basic digital cable. Television is sometimes the best recession entertainment. Sure, you only have so many choices—and far too many of them are ass—but every so often you stumble upon something different, such as tonight’s prime-time lineup on Turner Classic Movies. Comedy writer/ director/actor John Landis takes over programming tonight and slates a fun evening of the daft and daffy. First up, the 1924 Buster Keaton silent gem The Navigator, followed by Joseph Green’s 1962 howler of a sci-fi flick The Brain That Wouldn’t Die. After each feature, Landis programs a Fatty Arbuckle short—”Mabel and Fatty’s Wash Day” and “He Did and He Didn’t”—before moving on to the evening’s main events: James Whale’s 1936 Irene Dunnstarring but Paul Robeson and Charles Winninger scene-stealing Showboat and the Master’s Frenzy late night. (BM)

All day and all of the night, green beer and Irish whiskey prices vary. Not to come off too snobby or alienating or, uh, anti-Irish, but you can have your fucking drinking holidays. Cripes, didn’t drinking used to have a point? Celebrating? Forgetting? What the hell is this? Is the dude in front of the Don’t Know Tavern really out celebrating Irish heritage, or celebrating some twisted cultural endorsement of putting back more “car bombs” than a human being should have a right to and still own a liver. At least the Fourth of July has fireworks to keep drunks from tearing out onto the streets like so many assholes surely will tonight. And so the rest of us will be hiding in our homes, cringing at every ambulance siren and not really looking forward to dodging puke on the sidewalks the next day. Maybe there should be a test for holidays—what happens when you take booze out of it? What’s left? In any case, do us a favor, OK? If the stuff even touches your lips, take a cab—no one wants to dodge around your bits of ex-face come tomorrow. (Michael Patrick Byrne)

MARCH 12-15

PATTI AUSTIN: AN ELLA FITZGERALD TRIBUTE The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra gets its SuperPops on with two gorgeous talents and a well-traveled man with a stick: Songstress Patti Austin performs the songs of Ella Fitzgerald from her tribute album, For Ella, including the original "Hearing Ella Sing" with conductor Chelsea Tipton II on loan from the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. 8 P.M. March 12 at the Music Center at Strathmore, 8 P.M. March 13-14 and 3 P.M. March 15 at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., (410) 783-8000, bsomusic. org, $25-$80. (WW)

WEDNESDAY 18

TRIXIE AND MONKEY’S MUMBO Through March 21, 7:30 P.M. Wednesday and Thursday, 7:30 and 10 P.M. Friday and Saturday, Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., (410) 752-8558 theatreproject.org, $20. Baltimore’s burlesque dynamic duo, Trixie and Monkey, are back again with a twisted performance sure to have eyes glued to the stage. Although their trapeze talents and elastic acrobatics always make audiences “ooh” and “ahh,” it’s the pair’s comedic storytelling and skin revealing that really add flavor to this freakish spectacle. Given the ton of tricks up their sleeves, you can’t help but be at least mildly entertained by the twosome’s chaotic circus stunts. (JK) ■

DRINKS FRAZIER’S ON THE AVENUE 919 W. 36TH ST., (410) 662-4914

ANY HAMPDEN-BOUND DRINKER has found his or her way into this neighborhood standard/ force of gravity. At least, that’s how it feels when you walk in. Frazier’s is a comfortable mix of new-school Hampden hipness and old-school Hampden blue collar-ness. Between the two distinct sides—one pool-hall style, the other “living room”—the place is huge, though a certain dim, classic-pub coziness means it generally doesn’t feel like you’re at war for a beverage or table, which is nice. There's a well-maintained (looking) pool table that’s rarely not in use/without a line, and regulars tell us the food here is worthy, but we usually don’t come here for the food. Service is functional, if not what you’d call friendly, and the bar has an early happy hour (weekdays from 4 to 7 P.M.) that can turn devastating with $1.50 drafts and $2.50 rail cocktails. Save the horrifically bad-smelling men’s room, Frazier’s has all the right elements of a comfy, regular meet-up. (Michael Byrne)

BALTIMORE WEEKLY

NOW HEAR THIS

MARNIE STERN MARCH 12 Hear that? It’s the sound of a couple hundred scrotums retracting like nicked water balloons. Marnie Stern shreds—she shreds like just about no male human guitarist shreds in the year 2009. We don’t care what kind of music you’re into—though this is vaguely math rock—you’ll find some appreciation for Stern’s work. To give some idea, her sidearm is drummer Zach Hill, source of the 20-gatling-gun percussive salutes of the band Hella, and she eats bowls of guitar picks for breakfast. 8 P.M., Talking Head Club, 407 E. Saratoga St., (410) 783-7888, sonarbaltimore.com, $10. (Michael Byrne)

WEDNESDAY: The Old Magic Red Eye tour, a travelling showcase of poster art from Buffalo collective Pedal Printing, stops off at Charm City Art Space with music from Soft Cement, Attack in Black, and Shotgun Jimmie. Gary B and the Notions power-pop spin-off Person Parcel plays Joe Squared with Faster Faster Harder Harder. Slinky Brazilian pop band Nancy heads up a free show at Metro Gallery. Anarcho-punk nostalgia trip Propagandhi barks and growls at the Ottobar with Paint It Black and Ruiner. Sleepy, lovely pop-folk outfit Vetiver stops off at Sonar with the Sian Alice Group, Beach House, and Stephen Strohmeier. Pete Francis, the dude from indie band Dispatch now making guy-and-aguitar singer/songwriter fare, does so at the 8X10 with Barefoot Truth and Adam Day.

SATURDAY: Local gazers the Thrushes put a glaze over the Talking Head with Baby Aspirin and Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wrestle. Whatever the hell Motley Crue is in the year 2009, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s putting on a show at 1st Mariner Arena. The Ottobar hosts a benefit/fourth anniversary show for the Skatepark of Baltimore with music from McRad, Rude and the Reckkless, Public Offender, and Freetown Stomp. The 1980s cover band the Legwarmers do their thing at Rams Head Live. Rhode Island death metal brutes Vital Remains slash and burn at the Talking Head with Misery Index, Fierce Allegiance, Ancient Sacrifice, Condemn the Infected, Shinakumah,

his Exodus opus at Rams Head Live. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something special about screamo music in a different languageâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not that you can hear the lyrics anyhow, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to imagine European screamo kids have something better to sreamote about than the American breed. Anyhow, Swedish band Suis La Lune frays some vocal cords at the Talking Head with Pala, Army of Kashyyyk, In the Hollows, and Age Sixteen.

TUESDAY: Christian metalcore outfit Within the Ruins plays the Talking Head with Wretched, Whisteria Cottage, Feed Me Fear, Revilement, and Dawn of Desolation.

THURSDAY: Old, rich, and probably pretty happy, Modest Mouse still puts on a solid, cathartic show for the sad and lonely at Rams Head Live with Mimicking Birds. Hip-hopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consummate nice guy Common takes the mic at Sonar with Saleem and the Music Lovers and Wendel Patrick. Queen of shred Marnie Stern wails at the Talking Head with the Cotton Candy Collective and (erstwhile City Paper contributor) Ed Schrader. Peabody-born avantgarde outfit Ligetisplit Ensemble does something mysterious and probably very cool at An die Musik.

SAT 14 SKATEPARK OF BALTIMORE 4 YEAR ANNIV BENEFIT

MT6 THE 13TH MASSACRE SHOW MARCH 13 Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to think MT6 could out-Friday the 13th any label in our fair city. If these dudes arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t getting ripped and watching straight-to-DVD horror flicks on some kind of regular basis, then Jason cooked pancakes for the campers at the end and Freddy leaves quarters under little kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pillows while they sleep. Anyhow, headliner Nocnitsa is a sludgy blackmetal band that sounds like what riding inside a slow boxcar around hell must; Heroin UK is the most blazed-sounding rock band in Baltimore; and Hexspeak is a sound-field band named after a computer language. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get you started. 9 P.M., Hexagon, 1825 N. Charles St., hexagonspace.com, $6. (Michael Byrne)

DR. JEKYLL AND MR HYDE DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE Victor Fleming’s 1941 adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson novel stars Spencer Tracy as the titular scientist opposite Ingrid Bergman and Lana Turner. This 2 P.M. screening is preceded by a 1 P.M. talk by the Baltimore Sun movie critic Michael Sragow, whose recent book Victor Fleming: An American Movie Master examines this often overlooked auteur. At the Enoch Pratt Free Library March 14. THE KING AND THE CLOWN Korean director Junik Lee’s 2005 drama follows two 16th-century traveling actors dragged before the king for mocking him in their performances. The king sentences them to die—unless they can make him laugh. Not reviewed as of press time. At the Johns Hopkins Medical Institution’s Mountcastle Auditorium March 12 at 7:15 P.M.

BEDTIME STORIES Disney’s latest live-action feature is a typically wide-eyed, PG-rated family flick about magic and imagination. Bedtime Stories charms with its inventive fantasy premise, as the stories Skeeter (Adam Sandler) tells his niece and nephew begin mysteriously coming true, and it’s to the movie’s credit that it expends no energy trying to explain or justify the fantasy device. At its best, not even cheap CGI or the most contrived speech impediment in child actor history can stall the flick, and Brit comic Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), though also accustomed to working blue, easily outshines Sandler in a small supporting role. (AS) At Beltway Movies 6. THE CLASS Winner of the Golden Palm at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, Laurent Cantet’s The Class doesn’t resist its somewhat formulaic plot about a middle-class white teacher struggling to instruct his diverse and working-class students. But it is particularly attuned to the nuances of the classroom itself, the tensions that bubble up and over in a moment’s notice, made all the more exhilarating by students who have no reason to show restraint. François Bégaudeau, who plays the cocky and abrasive teacher, pushes the method acting technique to an extreme. Not only did he write the screenplay and novel on which the movie is based, but he also spent a year teaching at a school very much like the one portrayed in the movie. The Class is captivating because of its realism, not in spite of it. (MLJ) At The Charles Theatre.

THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT Wes Craven’s 1972 horror stunner gets remade by Greek director Dennis Iliadis, whose 2004 Hardcore was a genre curveball, which starts in the lurid and moves into an almost sweet love story between two hookers. Left should test Iliadis’ tone balancing act, as the remake’s trailer suggests it retains the original’s streamlined revenge story about two young girls heading to the big city for a show, meeting up with some unsavory characters who do unspeakable things to them, and then seeking refuge in one girl’s parents’ house. Not reviewed as of press time. Opens March 13.

CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) has run into a bit of bad luck. The home and garden magazine she writes for has just shut down, and she can’t afford to pay her rent. Instead of adopting a frugal lifestyle, however, she continues to frequent sample sales and a variety of designerclothing boutiques. She simply can’t stop shopping, and her addiction to buying new clothes is so bad that the mannequins have even started talking to her. It’s ironic, then, when she gets a job working at a business magazine and launches a column about how to stay out of debt. It’s inevitable that her inability to control her own spending habits will be exposed and undo the celebrity status she attains through her column. Based on the Sophie Kinsella novel, P.J. Hogan’s movie has some good moments, mostly because Fisher is so adept at physical comedy, tripping and flinging herself around relentlessly. But it quickly fizzles as it takes on a more serious tone and develops the rather routine love story between Rebecca and her editor Luke (Hugh Dancy). (JN)

FILM CLIPS C O N T I N U E D into an old, pink Victorian in the forest of Ashland, Ore., spurs an adventure into another realm where she must use her wit and courage to save not just herself, but her parents and even the spirits of children that came before her. It’s not easy to decide at what age kids will delight in the real fabric of the figures, the amazing scenes of coordinated jumping mice, and the yipping snap dragons and not be completely frightened of the scary rats, dolls stuffed with sawdust, and webs of deception. The fact that Coraline is 3D makes it all the more “real.” (WW)

CORALINE

THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON David Why doesn’t this movie click? Is it because director David Fincher excels at decrepitude, and Benjamin Button (Brad Pitt) has the opposite problem? Born a geriatric bundle of wrinkles and abandoned at an old-folks home, he’s adopted by the home’s resident caretaker (Taraji P. Henson) and reared among his pinochle-playing, afternoon-napping peers. Only he’s not their peer, since as he grows, he gains back the things they’ve lost, such as his hearing and hairline, and he becomes curious about things—especially the bewitching red-haired girl Daisy (Elle Fanning) who comes to visit her grandmother. These early scenes work, but as Daisy and Benjamin’s romance progresses, it dawns on you: This is Forrest Gump all over again. (VG) At Beltway Movies 6. DEFIANCE The true story of a group of Jews who take refuge in the woods of Poland during World War II, Defiance pretty much comes down to Jews with guns. In 1941, after their families are killed by invading Nazis, the Bielskis—clearheaded Tuvia (Daniel Craig), hotheaded Zus (Liev Schreiber), Asael (Jamie Bell), the one who becomes a man in the woods, and Aron (George MacKay), the little one who doesn’t do much— hole up in a Belarus forest. They soon discover other Jews hiding there. But Defiance isn’t a meditative WWII piece. It’s an action flick with revenge on its mind and an explosion-packed survival story disguised as a triumph of the spirit—although it makes it all look so tidy and easy. (MG)

FANBOYS Eric (Sam Huntington), Hutch (Dan Fogler), Linus (Chris Marquette), and Windows (Jay Baruchel) are four friends who grew up together worshipping the George Lucas epic Star Wars. They can recall trivia about the series that only the most hard-core fans know. In fact, they’ve remained such geeks that only Eric has gotten a real job (he sells cars for his dad); the other three, now in their early 20s, spend more time reading comics than working. When one of the four gets a terminal illness, they decide to embark on the trek they planned but never pursued as teens: They pile into Hutch’s van

and head to the Skywalker ranch where they intend to steal a copy of the not-yet-released Phantom Menace. The plot’s rather flimsy and the Star Wars jokes grow tiresome by the end, but a slew of cameos (from Kevin Smith to William Shatner), keep the movie entertaining. (JN) FIRED UP! High-school football stars and best friends Shawn (Nicholas D’Agosto) and Nick (Eric Christian Olsen) are serious players—who bag girls mostly by pretending to be sensitive—who decide that rather than sweat it out at football camp, they want to go to cheerleader camp to be surrounded by nubile pompom wielders. Fired Up! tries to be a wacky teen sex comedy and be a parody of the genre and fails at both. Bring It On it ain’t, primarily because it’s easier to care about whether the cheerleaders win the competition if you care about the cheerleaders, and in Fired Up! you just don’t. Just nod and smirk. (AD) GRAN TORINO Walt Kowalski (Clint Eastwood) is an implacable Korean War veteran and retired autoworker mourning the recent death of his wife. He doesn’t really understand the modern American society that has, it seems, suddenly sprung up around his neighborhood in the guise of the Hmong families, who represent the new face of his block. When a straight-laced Hmong boy from next door, Thao (Bee Vang), is bullied by his gangbanger cousin into trying to steal Walt’s pristine ’72 Ford Gran Torino, it sets off a chain of events that leads Walt and Thao’s family into the arena of uneasy friendship. What these characters share is an ability to fill the voids left by absent—emotionally or physically—sons and fathers. Whatever else Gran Torino is or isn’t, it’s at least a master class in the irascibility that Eastwood has perfected over his 50-plus years in showbiz. (RB) At Betlway Movies 6. HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU Director Ken Kwapis’ thoughtful take on the 2004 self-help book of the same name stars Drew Barrymore as Mary, an ad rep for Baltimore’s gay paper (get it? Mary?). Yeah, HJNTIY’s love, loss, and conversation takes place in Baltimore’s tony rowhouses, slick lofts, and cobblestones, although you might not recognize it much. The strong and handsome ensemble here never astounds through HJNTIY’s collection of dovetailing stories, and while its plunge into dating and mating isn’t world-shattering, it is entertaining and, although almost too good looking, not too far away from our own relationship backyard. (WW)

HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU HOTEL FOR DOGS An abandoned building that’s become home to a group of wayward canines, the “hotel” in director Thor Freudenthal’s feature-length debut is virtually a character in itself. That’s where Andi (Emma Roberts) and Bruce (Jake T. Austin), two young orphans, set up an assortment of contraptions that enable the dogs to entertain themselves in the absence of their surrogate owners. While it might seem like the perfect

FILM CLIPS C O N T I N U E D

opportunity to use computer-generated graphics to show the dogs doing an amazing array of tricks, that’s not the case here, as a group of professional dog trainers trained the creatures to strut their stuff without imposing too many human qualities. As a result,the movie’s unabashed charm—as well as the fact that not a single dog dies— distinguishes it from the slew of recent dog flicks. (JN) At Beltway Movies 6.

THE INTERNATIONAL This glibly plotted, elaborately staged thriller teams a Manhattan district attorney (Naomi Watts) with a British Interpol agent (Clive Owen) targeting a global bank with a frightening fiscal reach and political acumen, willing to kill and scheme to maintain profits and control. The International aims for that heady paranoia of American 1970s flicks, but only its posh settings— bouncing from Berlin to Lyon to Luxembourg to Milan and New York—and director Tom Tykwer’s compelling action staging, such as a taut shootout in the Guggenheim Museum, give it any life. (BM)

MEDICINE FOR MELANCHOLY Writer/director Barry Jenkins’ feature debut only follows two characters throughout a single day, but what they do and talk about establishes the movie’s elusive theme. Micah (Wyatt Cenac) and Joanne (Tracey Heggins) wake up next to each other after drunkenly hooking up at a mutual friend’s party, and then stumble through an awkward introduction before moving from museum to Tenderloin apartment to DJ night at a bar, inching closer and closer together—maybe. Cinematographer James Laxton catches minimal nonverbal communications with a sophisticated nuanced eye, and Cenac carries the casual plot often through sheer charm alone. Medicine for Melancholy ends up a romance disguised as an urban essay, or an urban essay disguised as a romance, presented as a love letter to a San Francisco that may be on the verge of disappearing due to gentrification. (BM) At the Charles Theatre through March 12.

MILK The first half of director Gus Van Sant’s moving portrait of assassinated activist Harvey Milk (Sean Penn), the first openly gay man elected to public office in the United States, is a fascinating mix of archival footage, historical re-enactment, and bravura acting. It’s a disarmingly effective structure, juxtaposing the lead’s horrible fate against Van Sant’s irrepressibly lively picture of Milk moving from New York to San Francisco in 1970 with his partner (James Franco), opening a camera store, becoming a local activist for both gay and basic human rights, and his first few unsuccessful runs for public office. Once Milk enters public office it becomes a much more conventional movie; throughout, though, it’s anchored by Penn’s remarkably mimetic performance and Emile Hirsch’s even better Cleve Jones. Solid. (BM) At the Charles through March 12. PAUL BLART: MALL COP The titular loser is played by sitcom star Kevin James, and for its first half the picture relies on the delusional security guard’s power trips for laughs. But behind the silly mustache and the Segway he wheels around the shopping center, James is constitutionally incapable of coming across unlikable. So Blart’s inevitable transformation from underdog to hero, as he attempts to foil a robbery of the mall, feels more plausible than it should. And as James throws his rotund frame into action, Mall Cop transitions from mundane patrolling to exploding cop movie clichés almost as entertainingly as Hot Fuzz. One of the more tolerable lowbrow laughers in recent memory. (AS) THE PINK PANTHER 2 A group of international investigators come together to catch a world-renowned

treasure thief who has come out of hiding for the first time in decades to steal the Pink Panther, a huge pink diamond. Steve Martin returns to his comedic roots of physical comedy, silly accents, and misunderstandings as Inspector Clouseau, and he’s teamed with some equally inept international detectives: Ponton (Jean Reno), Vicenzo (Andy Garcia), Pepperidge (Alfred Molina), Kenji (Yuki Matsuzaki), and the stunning Aishwarya Rai as Sonia. The movie’s colors are nice, but chasing after the bad guy while tripping up, falling down, flirting with your assistant, and disappointing your country feels a little too close for comfort. Much like the dream team, here’s a group of supposed talents pissing it all away. (WW)

books and Slumdog is no different, but compared to his earlier works, it just doesn’t measure up. (CH)

PUSH Looks great, utterly vacuous: Clairvoyants, telekinetics, and the like walk among us—such as young seer Cassie (Dakota Fanning), mind-controller Kira (Camilla Belle), and, well, object mover Nick (Chris Evans), and they’re hunted by similarly gifted shady government agents in Hong Kong for reasons too labyrinthine and banal to get into here. This pedestrian premise receives a plush visualization thanks to director Paul McGuigan and cinematographer Peter Sova, but there’s only so much this turd of a script can be polished. (BM)

THE TALE OF DESPEREAUX The Tale of Despereaux is the story of a young mouse (Matthew Broderick) whose bravery brings together a royal family and breathes life into a village obsessed with soup. Oddly enough, Despereaux the mouse gets relatively little screen time, as he shares his tale with a servant girl (Emma Watson) who’s envious of a princess (Tracey Ullman), a rat (Dustin Hoffman) seeking redemption, and a chef (Kevin Kline) whose soup has been outlawed. The result is a bland story filled with moralistic clichés. (JM)

TAKEN Liam Neeson shoots, beats, maims, stabs, cons, tortures, and otherwise kills a seemingly endless stream of bad guys on his way through Paris’ sex-trafficking underground to save his daughter in this Luc Bessonproduced action thriller directed by Pierre Morel. As an action flick, it’s a decidedly reactionary and rote exercise in the sort of moral superiority in a foreign land more indicative of a previous presidential administration. As saucily overcooked melodrama, though, Taken’s expressing a father’s undying love for his daughter as a homicidal rampage is a real hoot. (BM)

TWO LOVERS Leonard Kraditor (Joaquin Phoenix) hasn’t even been properly introduced when he makes an impulsive and feeble suicide attempt. No, things aren’t going well for Leonard, who’s still reeling from a devastating breakup, struggling with his mental health, and living with his parents in Brighton Beach, N.Y., when he gets invovled with the the hot-ish daughter (Vinessa Shaw) of his father’s would-be partner in dry cleaning and a new blond neighbor (Gwyneth Paltrow). Despite Jame Gray’s impeccable mise en scene and good performances all around, the central triangle feels dubious, and the movie ultimately follows. (LG) At the Charles Theatre.

THE READER THE READER The Reader begins as a riddle, as an emotionally shut-off German attorney, Michael Berg (Ralph Fiennes), kicks a beautiful woman out of his apartment before the sight of a tram inexplicably takes him back to 1958. As a teenager Michael (David Kross) begins an illicit affair with a conductor named Hanna (Kate Winslet), a dominatrix who forces her young lover to read to her before she lets him touch her. Now, you assume that Hanna is responsible for the miserable adult Michael, but that’s part of the increasingly complex riddle that director Stephen Daldry weaves out of Bernhard Schlink’s best seller. The movie clunks across four decades as a meditation on Germany’s post-war conscience, but Daldry’s self-important direction turns The Reader turns into a smugly intellectual exercise. (CH) At Landmark Harbor East. SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE The Muslim Jamal (Dev Patel) has defied his violent youth and grown into a soft-spoken, gentle 18-year-old who, in the opening sequence, has just answered the penultimate question on India’s version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? His seemingly triumphant moment is juxtaposed against his torture that night by the local police, who presume an uneducated “slumdog” could not have survived the show without cheating, and they want to know how. Jamal’s response is the movie’s story, as he explains each of his answers and how his tragic life experiences provided him with them. Director Danny Boyle has always opted for protagonists who have placed more value on their life experiences than

UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS Director Patrick Tatopolous makes this prequel to the previous two Underworld movies seem like some kind of Holocaust drama. Not that a movie about werewolves rising up against their cruel vampire masters can’t or shouldn’t play it straight, but it requires a deft touch that Tatopolous lacks. So when the movie awkwardly becomes an allegory for real-life race relations, it’s hard to know whether to laugh or be appalled as head vampire Viktor (Bill Nighy) calls werewolf Lucian (Michael Sheen) a credit to his race. Series star Kate Beckinsale wisely passed on this nonsense. Instead, we get Rhona Mitra as female vampire (and Viktor’s daughter) Sonja, and she’s every bit as wooden here as she was in last year’s Doomsday. The first two films in the series weren’t great, but at least they offered up some fun and excitement. (RI) At Muvio Egyptian 24. WALTZ WITH BASHIR Filmmaker Ari Folman’s animated documentary uses personal stories as a way into a larger-scope, but still highly personalized treatment of the 1982 Lebanon War—one that invites the filmmaker’s own unwelcome war flashback, an ambiguous and surreal scene of the war’s Sabra and Shatila massacres, which leads Folman to worry that he’s repressed memories of his involvement in the killings. Waltz With Bashir does a suspiciously tidy bit of buck-passing toward its conclusion, but the stark, unfiltered scene of heartbreaking carnage at its end indicts all of humanity. (JM) At Landmark Harbor East and the Charles. WATCHMEN Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal graphic novel Watchmen was widely regarded as unfilmable, immediately apparent to anyone who read the 12-issue magnum opus packed with symbolism

WATCHMEN and subtext about American hegemony and the superhero myth. Once upon a time, costumed adventurers such as the Comedian (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Silk Spectre (Carla Gugino) walked among us, but the advent of the near-omnipotent Dr. Manhattan (Billy Crudup) hastened their demise. Now someone’s trying to kill the last of the superheroes, both small, crude psychopaths like Rorschach (Jackie Earle Haley) and elegant self-made supermen like Ozymandias (Matthew Goode). But director Zack Snyder (300) treats the original text as an inviolate storyboard, and his actors don’t speak in the natural rhythms of human dialogue. There’s a ghost of metaphor still lingering inside this movie, a vague feeling that something deep and meaningful about all this flash and dazzle hovers beneath the surface. But trying to grab hold of it is impossible, and you’re left feeling like a dog trying to dig to freedom through the kennel’s concrete floor. (VG) THE WRESTLER Director Darren Aronofsky’s bleak, strangely inspiring tale of a lonely man struggling with age and a desperate dedication to the brutal grind of professional wrestling: Mickey Rourke plays Randy “The Ram” Robinson, a hulking, good-natured (outside the ring) jock who has—surprise—alienated his daughter Stephanie ( Evan Rachel Wood), and the pathos of an absentee dad trying to salvage a relationship with a neglected child is compelling. Smokin’ hot (and talented) Marisa Tomei plays world-weary single-mom exotic dancer Cassidy, whose scenes with the Ram coalesce into a picture of an awkward, unsure courtship. Aronofsky’s unvarnished strip-joint scenes and graphically violent wrasslin’ action ain’t very pretty, but Rourke finds a way to connect to a man enduring humiliation and mortification of the flesh to remain part of the thing that gives him purpose: performance.

SAVAGE LOVE

BY DA N S AVAG E

SPERMCICLES MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE BEEN TOGETHER for about four years and have been married for a little over a year. He’s 31; I’m 27. We started out as friends and soon began a long-distance relationship, until I got pregnant. We have a great friendship, and honestly I wouldn’t want to be with anyone else. Here’s our problem: I have the sex drive of a 16-year-old boy, whereas he’s practically asexual. The fact that we even got pregnant is quite shocking. Early on, it didn’t bother me much—infrequent sex is common in long-distance relationships—but now that we’re married, he would still rather jack off to porn. I’m not hideous. I’m in great shape, my “amazing ass” gets hit on all the time, and I’m an open-minded, porn-loving girl—but my husband isn’t interested. LAME. The sex he does give me is quasi-forced, strictly missionary, and at most three times a year. But the solo sex he has in front of the computer while I’m at work happens three times a week at least. LAMER. The topic has been discussed often. Especially after I go out with friends and come home at an in-

Sat, March 15th 6:30 pm • $20 Finding Your Inner Burlesque Dancer

Mess around a few times—at least a half a dozen times—with vaginal penetration off the menu, ratcheting down the performance anxiety for your boy. Once he’s seen that, yes, his dick does work—yes we can get hard, yes we can stay hard, yes we can blow a load with a woman in the room—then you can move on to vaginal intercourse. And take control, FIRST: Tell him—as sexily as possible—what you’re going to doing before you get started, tell him what you’re doing while you’re doing it, and then you can tell him when he’s “in” instead of letting him guess. And, finally, a little required reading for the virgins out there and the people who’re about to fuck some sense into them: The Virgin Project. Illustrators K. D. Boze and Stasia Kato interviewed all sorts of people— gay, straight, bi, young, old, ancient—about their loss-of-virginity experiences. The illustrated stories in The Virgin Project are moving, hilarious, and heartbreaking in turn—sometimes all three at once—and knowing that everyone’s first time is awkward, and that some folks’ first times are unpleasant, and that most of us survive them, might be good for your virgin, FIRST. It couldn’t hurt you to be reminded of those things, either.

Featuring DC’s Own Blonde Burlesque Bombshell Bambi Galore Burlesque is the art of the Tease, the art of bawdy humor and the art of the reveal. In this course you will learn how to incorporate al three elements into becoming a burlesque performer for the stage or the bedroom. Your inner sexual confidence is only a shimmy away!

IF IT’S NOT IN MARK BITTMAN’S HOW TO COOK EVERYTHING, IT WAS EITHER MEANT TO BE EATEN RAW OR NOT AT ALL. decent hour, upon which I must explain that I spent the night being chatted up by blokes who noticed my “amazing ass.” He’s admitted that his sex drive has been a problem in his previous relationships. I guess I’m just getting to the point where one of these days, I’m going to fuck a minor-league soccer team. Any thoughts? S EXLESS A ND D ESPERATE Your husband—who is beating off three times a week in front of the computer—is interested in sex, SAD. He’s just not interested in sex with you or anyone else he’s ever been with. But ultimately, the issue here isn’t sex. It’s about neglect and selfishness and false advertising. (When we marry, we’re signing up to fuck someone at least semiregularly for decades. Not interested in fucking? Don’t marry.) Since he’s unlikely to change his ways—his stunted, sexually selfish ways—you have just two options: an open relationship or a new relationship. Considering your compatibility and the fact that you have a child, I’d encourage you to stay together. So an open relationship it is—and he shouldn’t have a problem with that. If sex doesn’t matter to him, if he’s indifferent to sex and/or you, then it shouldn’t matter to him if you occasionally do this supremely unimportant thing with other people and/or minor-league soccer teams. So long as you’re a good and loving partner and co-parent, and so long as your family is your first priority, you should be free to seek safe, sane, and nondisruptive sex elsewhere. Added perk for him: no more quasi-forced sex with you. And who knows? Maybe knowing that you’re having sex with other dudes—or just knowing that you can have sex with other dudes—will cause your husband to develop a bad case of sperm-competition syndrome (Google it), and the husband will be inspired, fucking you three times a week instead of his fist.

I’m 21, female, and pretty experienced. The guy I’m dating now is 23 and a virgin. I’d really like to avoid some of the awkwardness that I’m sure is going to arise, seeing as I’m his first. (And has arisen—the first time we attempted to do the deed, he was so nervous he couldn’t stay hard; he also thought he was “in” when, in reality, he was humping my leg.) I’m at a loss. Obviously this is going to take a lot of communication in the moment; aside from that, do you have any advice for how to make this less awkward for both of us? F IRST I SN ’ T R EALLY S EXY T IME

I appreciated your responses to Missing Kisses and Loses Interest Quickly, and I would like to share what worked for me some years ago when I wanted to taste my own come but was hesitant—and I’ve got two follow-up questions for you. My girlfriend (now wife), like LIQ’s wife, was frustrated that my come-eating ambitions would disappear after climax. So we figured out a way for me to eat it before I climaxed: I masturbate into a Ziplock bag and put it in the freezer. Then during our lovemaking session we retrieve the baggie— she feeds it to me in frozen chunks, or she lays the frozen pieces on her body and I lick it up as it melts, preclimax of course. Because of these baby steps, now on special occasions I even eat it “fresh” after I’ve come in her. Two questions: Could home-frozen sperm—stored for 24 hours or so in a regular household freezer— impregnate my wife? And if so, is there a risk of birth defects or miscarriage? Also, we are interested in using my ejaculate as an ingredient in cooking—are you aware of any legit recipes that use human semen? C OMING A ROUND T O C REAM P IES Frozen spermcicles gross me out, CATCP, and I arrive at this debate with a real affection for the stuff. So I can’t imagine your idea will catch on, even among guys like you and LIQ. Another reader had a better idea: a little tantric woo-woo. “Through specific breathing patterns and concentration, you can make yourself come without ejaculating; or, you can ejaculate a little and still be hard,” writes Mr. F. “I can bring myself to a ‘mini-orgasm’ where I just slightly come on my girlfriend’s tits, go right back to riding her again, and tease her by licking a bit off. She loves it.” As for your questions . . . “Sperm frozen in a household freezer would probably be useless for insemination,” says David Battaglia, an associate professor at Oregon Health and Science University and a fertility consultant. “The issue isn’t genetic damage (there probably wouldn’t be any). The issue is sperm survival. Sperm has to be frozen in special solutions in order to survive, and we freeze it in liquid-nitrogen temperatures.” And while I’ve never cooked with sperm—if it’s not in Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything , it was either meant to be eaten raw or not at all—there’s a cookbook out there for you: Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes. ■ Download the Savage Lovecast (my weekly podcast) every Tuesday at thestranger.com/savage.

1-866-706-8833 Hypertension: The Silence is Deafening A third of people with hypertension donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know they have it, according to the American Heart Association. Although it is called the silent killer, consequences of untreated hypertension ring loud and clear - stroke, heart attack and kidney or heart failure, to name a few. Right now, a clinical trial is under way for men and women age 18 or older with moderate to severe hypertension. If eligible, your participation will last 9 to 12 weeks.

DO YOU OR SOMEONE YOU CARE FOR HAVE SEVERE EMPHYSEMA? Pulmonary and Critical Care Associates of Baltimore is seeking patients with severe Emphysema to participate in a research trial under the guidance of Dr. William Krimsky Emphysema is a progressive disease that affects an estimated 3 million Americans. Emphysema causes irreversible lung damage. Over time, elasticity of the lung tissue is lost, causing air to be trapped in the air sacs and impairing the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Symptoms of Emphysema include cough, shortness of breath and limited exercise ability. Almost 44 percent of individuals with Emphysema report that the disease has limited their daily activities. At the present time, treatment options include management through prescription medications, oxygen therapy and surgery. In spite of these therapies and smoking cessation, many patients with severe symptoms are in need of more effective treatments.

Sound the alarm on hypertension.

The IBVÂŽ Valve Trial will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational valve. The IBVÂŽ Valve is a small, umbrella shaped device implanted without an incision. The valves are designed to redirect airďŹ&#x201A;ow to the healthier portions of the lungs to improve the health status and overall quality of life in patients with emphysema.

taught that mathematics provides the ultimate truth about reality. His otherwise productive career went through a rough patch when one of his students found that the square root of two is an “irrational” number that can’t be expressed as a simple fraction. “Impossible!” said Pythagoras. His system was built on the axiom that there are no such numbers. Yet he couldn’t refute the student’s proof. By some accounts, Pythagoras had the student drowned for his impunity. The brilliant theorist couldn’t deal with the threat to his dogma. I bring this to your attention, because you have an opportunity to do what Pythagoras couldn’t: Accept the evidence that your beliefs about reality are limited, and incorporate the new data into a revised worldview. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) “One often meets one’s destiny on the road taken to avoid it,” says a French proverb. Sometimes, in fact, you can’t even get properly aligned with your highest potential unless you try to escape it. Only by seeking an alternate route are you led into the circumstances that ultimately activate the fullness of your gifts. These mysteries will soon have personal meaning for you. Upcoming plot twists will lead you to where you didn’t even know you needed to go. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Chris Farley was “a wrecking ball of joy,” according to one of his friends. The Saturday

Night Live comedian loved to provoke merriment wherever he went, relentlessly shepherding the mood toward celebratory exuberance. I’m not saying you should try to ignite conviviality with that much ferocity in the coming days. But I do think this is a special phase of your astrological cycle, when you have an extraordinary capacity for spreading witty inspiration and catalytic fun—and for collecting the useful rewards generated by that good stuff. dining on something the menu refers to as a Milky Golden Prize Delight Bun. And I’m thinking, I bet it’s going to be a kind of Milky Golden Prize Delight week for you . . . a Sweet Creamy Lusty Elixir week . . . a Rich Thick Tasty Brilliance week. If you can manage it, I suggest you try to have a dream one of these nights in which you find a delicious morsel of the sun in a bowl of pudding, and savor it all while listening to the full moon sing you a thrilling lullaby. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) I predict that you will go to a grungy thrift store to shop for bargain kitchen items, but

will instead buy a magic snow globe depicting a dolphin drinking beer from a fountain that’s shaped like a silver stiletto pump. When you get this talisman home you will discover that it gives you the power to hover and cruise a few feet off the ground, plus tune in to the secret thoughts of people who confuse you, and even time-travel into the past for brief 10-minute blasts that allow you to change what happened. And if my prediction’s not accurate in every detail, I bet it will nonetheless be metaphorically true. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) The foxglove plant can either be a hex or a healer. If you eat its flowers, your heart rate will zoom to a dangerous rate and your digestive system will go haywire. If, on the other hand, you have certain cardiac problems and partake of the foxglove’s leaves, they will steady and strengthen your heart. I bet you can think of several influences in your life whose powers can be equally contradictory. According to my reading of the omens, it’s an excellent time to get very clear about the differences, and take steps to ensure that you’ll be exposed as little as possible to the negative effects. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) The agitation and commotion seem to be dying down. The bitching and moaning are

diminishing. And yet, from what I can tell, the Big Squeeze is still squeezing you, which probably means that it’s going to get trickier for you to extricate yourself. Want my advice? Don’t take “maybe” for an answer. Negotiate with a mischievous look in your eye. Learn more about the productive value of unpredictability by studying 3-year-olds and free spirits who have nothing to lose. Most importantly, do whatever it takes to deflect the propaganda and slip past the symbolic gestures so that you can penetrate to the core of the real feelings. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) “Here’s what I’m looking for,” said a personal classified I read online. “Someone who can tear me away from living inside my head . . . who sees things in me that I don’t see myself.” That’s exactly what I want for you right now. Whether this someone shows up in the form of an ally or enemy, or beloved animal or invisible friend, I don’t care. The important thing is that he or she awakens you to certain mysteries about you that you’ve been blind to, and helps free you from the unconscious delusion that all of reality is contained inside the boundaries of your skull.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras is known as “the father of numbers.” He

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) This would be a perfect week to practice writing love letters. However, it’s not yet a favorable time to actually send the love letters you compose. You need some work before you’ll be ready to produce the finished products. You’ve got to drain off the chatter that’s at the top of your head before you’ll be able to penetrate to the more interesting truths that lie at the bottom of your heart. But if you do your homework—churn out, say, at least three eruptions of rabid amour—you’ll prepare yourself well to craft a thoughtful meditation that will really have a chance to make an impact. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) I decided to call my cable TV company to inquire about a mistake on my bill. From past experience, I suspected this would be a visit to the suburbs of hell. My expectations were soon fulfilled. After being cycled through three phases of the automated system, I was told by a machine that I’d get to speak with an actual person in 16 minutes. Then I was delivered into the aural torment of recorded smooth jazz. But a minute into the ordeal, something wonderful happened. The Muzak gave way to a series of great indie-rock tunes, including three I’d never heard before. A song that I later determined to be Laura Veirs’ “Don’t Lose Yourself” became my instant new favorite. By the time the billing consultant was ready for me, my mood was cheery. I predict a comparable sequence for you. An apparent trip to the suburbs of hell will have a happy ending that exposes you to fresh sources of inspiration. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) In response to the recession, some companies have come up with an ingenious

way to avoid raising prices: They reduce the amount of product they offer by shrinking the packaging. The makers of Skippy peanut butter, for instance, restructured the bottom of the jar so that only 16.3 ounces could fit inside instead of the previous 18. In the coming weeks, I suspect you will have to deal with metaphorical versions of this strategy. Now that I’ve told you, maybe you won’t be fooled. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) In the past few weeks, you have veered close to the edge of blissful triumph. From

what I can tell, you averted total ecstatic breakthrough and fantastic raging success by only the narrowest of margins. If you don’t want to go all the way in the coming days—if you’d rather remain faithful to your fear of success and fall back into your humdrum comfort zone—you should slam on the brakes immediately. But I warn you: The cosmic pressure to push you over the top into loopy, grinning, shameless victory is almost irresistible. ■ HOMEWORK: EXPRESS GRATITUDE FOR THE ENEMY WHO HAS TAUGHT YOU THE MOST.

Remember! This time of year is the time to BUY - NOT SHOP. You can always view (or "shop") inventory online (check out City Paper autos at citypaper.kaango.com) but when you arrive in person be prepared to strike a deal and drive away that day in a vehicle. Rates are great, local lenders (banks) are eager to lend $$ and there are some AMAZING DEALS! While some lending standards have tightened up, it's not impossible to overcome!

THE BARGAINS ARE EVERYWHERE! So, jump online, figure out what vehicle you want and get over to your local dealer and find some of the best bargains in Baltimore!

AUTOMOTIVE

With all this talk about the Big 3, sinking sales, and the stock market woes, why Economic times may cause us to sigh should you even consider But thousands know NOW is the time to buy buying a vehicle? The reason, simply put - BARGAINS!! Right now, dealerships are offering unprecedented deals on inventory. New car prices have been slashed, some offer thousands off MSRP, and preowned trucks and SUVs are at record low prices, an extra sweet deal since we are currently in the winter months. Let's talk about interest rates! Some new car dealerships are offering 0% financing, some for up to 60 months! Used car interest rates are in the single digits! NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY! Another reason - the end of the month is rapidly approaching. The end of month is traditionally the best time to buy (a dealer wants to move its inventory on a monthly basis, so the incentives to buy are much greater). Even better? It's the beginning of the year savings! Dealers want to sell all remaining current year vehicles, turning the normal end of year deals into consumer steals.
