editor’s note

That ‘70s show by Jim Morekis |

Whenever a film is made, you can always count on two things: 1) They always cast an actor from Brooklyn or New Jersey to do the Southern accent. 2) Everyday life on location is disrupted to some extent. I’ve seen a lot of movies made in Savannah over the years, and frankly some have been more disruptive than others. But the film CBGB, which has briefly transformed parts of downtown to the 1970s — has been as remarkable a case study of civic life/film industry harmony as I’ve witnessed. Some of this no doubt is due to the small-budget nature of the film. Though “small” is a relative term — we’re still talking several million dollars to make this film about the seminal New York City punk club of the same name and its longtime owner, Hilly Kristal, played by the great Alan Rickman. (CBGB put a twist on item number one above by having the British-born Rickman do a New Jersey accent.) The big-budget productions that hit town are typically much more tightly controlling and much more insistent in demanding that us regular folks rearrange our days to conform to Hollywood’s whims. But in the case of CBGB, we have a shoot which is not only smaller in scope, there’s clearly been a deliberate effort to include the community as much as possible — and interfere with it as little as possible. Credit for this goes to the film company, Unclaimed Freight Productions, and our own Savannah Film Office, headed by Jay Self. The two work together to make an enjoyable experience not only for cast and crew, but for residents and tourists as well. Most CBGB exteriors so far have taken place right in the hub of Savannah’s tourist activity. And as our favorite local celebrity might say, we all know which side of the bread the boootter goes on, y’aaaall… Speaking of Mrs. Deen: Case in point was this past week’s shoot on Congress Street, a couple of doors down from her world-famous restaurant.

The film crew meticulously recreated a gritty Manhattan street of the ‘70s, transforming a storefront with the iconic CBGB awning (complete with cryptic subhead OMFUG, which stands for Other Music For Uplifting Gormandizers). Piled up (fake) trash lined the set’s sidewalk. Grime and dirt (also fake) were strewn about, along with empty liquor bottles (not fake). Crews hosed Congress Street down to replicate a New York rain. See more pics from the set on page 8, and for a piece about the actual New York see Jessica Leigh Lebos’s column on page 7. But — as you may have noticed in an ad in Connect Savannah the last couple of weeks — all restaurants and nightlife venues on the Congress Street corridor around the corner from busy Ellis Square remained wide open for business the entire time. While this occasionally made for some pretty surreal scenes — such as the time an assistant director put her finger to her mouth to gently sush bystanders before cameras rolled on Rickman, while a

musician inside a Congress Street club continued belting out “Margaritaville” or whatever — it has made for an interesting and largely positive win/win situation for everyone. And who knows? The hubbub may actually have helped in the filming of the movie — since after all CBGB deals with rock ‘n’ roll and, you know, partying. Many tourists ambled up to the Congress Street set and asked what was going on — distressingly few of them having ever heard of the club CBGB or even of Alan Rickman, who played Severus Snape in several unbelievably popular Harry Potter films. Others, however, were more, shall we say, focused in their tourism, such as the man in the bright pink polo who left Lady & Sons clutching a large bag of Paula Deen merchandise. He exited the restaurant and proceeded to walk obliviously right through the film set just before cameras started rolling, passing literally inches away from Rickman. A production assistant calmly explained to the man that he was going the wrong way, right through the scene. He nodded briefly and kept on striding toward Ellis Square, still clutching that big bag of merch. The crew and bystanders shared smiles, as if to say, “That’s show biz.” And, I guess, that’s rock ‘n’ roll too… cs

CBGB star Alan Rickman in costume as club owner Hilly Kristal during a take on Johnson Square last week

Empire State of mind bones at the Museum of Natural History and wound our way up the spiral of the Guggenheim, sighing over Picasso’s “Woman with Yellow Hair” and scratching our heads at the Cobra artists’ hidden obscenities. We cruised on the Hudson River past the Statue of Liberty and stared solemnly at the tremendous tower rising out of the ashes at Ground Zero. We gave The Lion King a standing ovation (yes, it really was that good.) We snarfed corned–beef sandwiches and street pizza and the best bagels, their distinctive taste attributed to the clean–and–delicious tap water, which made bottled water an unnecessary expense in this most expensive land. My favorite attraction had to be the High Line, an elevated stretch of industrial railway in the Meatpacking District that’s been converted into a verdant urban paradise full of blooming indigenous plants and reclaimed materials. The mile–and–a–half–long trail snakes through the concrete jungle, turning unexpectedly into gardens where butterflies alight on purple Echinacea blooms while goateed hipsters busk with bluegrass classics. Locals sunbathe on plush grass or built–in lounge chairs, and public art murals face out of 20–story buildings. It’s significant that this free outdoor destination has become one of NYC’s must–sees: As with Savannah’s squares, visitors love civic projects that preserve nature and turn urban blight into pragmatic beauty. It’s a proven case to advocate for more modern rails–to–trails projects and protection of outdoor resources; our city’s future draw can be so much more than another high–rise hotel on the banks of the river. (If you could re–imagine an unused Savannah site as a public greenspace, what would it be? Post your answers on Connect’s Facebook page.) I’d been to New York before, but not for a solid week of sightseeing. It’s unlikely at this point I will ever live out my childhood fantasy of

Maybe it was a cliché, taking a turbo elevator to the near–top of the Empire State Building. But up so high, it seems obvious that the island of Manhattan is the sun around which all revolves, its glimmering rays reaching past the outer boroughs to the entire world. Its iconic edifices house the masters of art, fashion and finance who we are influenced by and at the mercy of; its legends inform our dreams and national identity. Even if we never set foot on its soot–spattered asphalt, we grow up recognizing its landmarks as symbols of struggle, success, and our collective history. My nose poking through the iron framework, wind whipping through my hair, I can see Lady Liberty holding up her torch for the entire Eastern seaboard. I steep in the idea that I am, at this moment, literally and figuratively, on top of the world. For a girl from Arizona who’s spent a lot of time on the fringes, it is an epiphany. Then a pasty couple wearing matching T–shirts elbows their way in front of me and my view is reduced to a wide behind encased in a pair of canvas shorts. Such is the glorious paradox of NYC: Batman’s Gotham is at once an archetype and a real live place, with all of its attendant humanity. Being in the Big Apple means sharing your epiphanies with everyone else. Not that anyone else cares. Fuhgeddaboudit. (On a smaller scale, Savannah shares the same paradox of image vs. reality, its moss–draped history embedded in the national psyche as it pulses along as home to all of us. Not every city can say the same.) With a week to spend in this epic metropolis with my family, there was the agenda of seeing the famed sights, of course: Grand Central Station, where we ogled the constellation– studded ceiling and giggled in the corners at the Whispering Gallery. We marveled over the Apatosaurus

inhabiting a suite at the Plaza, but it also felt important to do more than gawk like a rube in Times Square, blinking at all the pretty lights. My favorite New York minutes were the most mundane: Reading the Times with a paper cup of coffee, passing through the subway turnstile, feeling the warmth of the boulders in Central Park. These gave me a small sense of belonging to this grandest of cities—and if I can belong here, I can feel that way everywhere else on earth, including funny old Savannah. A week in New York might cost as much as a decade of therapy, but it’s far more valuable. It helped that instead of booking separate rooms in an expensive hotel, we shared a three–bedroom apartment in the Murray Hill neighborhood with my parents, my brother and his fiancée—still plenty pricey, but it provided a common space to decompress in the afternoons and get away from the madding crowds. (Note: The key to a successful multi–generational family vacation is multiple bathrooms.) Pretending to be residents afforded us more of the local color: An old man leading a cat on a leash, a lady practically making out with her pink– crowned cockatiel at the Boat Basin Café, an insane cab driver shrieking Scripture, thumbing through his Bible while steering with his elbow. One early morning when I was riding down the cranky elevator for a solo coffee before the rest of the family roused, I encountered a woman in a green turban carrying a meticulously–coiffed Yorkshire terrier the size of a dinner roll. The dog growled. “He really doesn’t like people,” confided its owner. “I have to board him when the maid comes every week.” The elevator opened and she sashayed past the doorman on our way out. I turned left on 36th Street, chuckling to myself: Man, New York may be amazing, but there sure is a lot of crazy. That’s when I looked down to find that I was wearing two different shoes. One blue canvas flat and one leather black one. I shrugged and walked on, blending into the crowd. cs

Blotter All cases from recent Savannah/ Chatham Police Dept. incident reports

Franklin followup with photo Police now say that Wesley Franklin, the 21–year–old firefighter who died in a Sandfly area bar last week, was innocently standing in the bar when he was shot. The investigation determined that he did not confront the shooter or interrupt a robbery in progress outside the bar, as previously reported. The shooting took place about 2 a.m. at Deb’s Pub and Grub on Norwood Avenue near Skidaway Drive. Homicide detectives are searching for a black male in his mid–20s with short to medium hair, 5–8 to 5–10, about 175 pounds with a medium complexion who was wearing a mask over the lower portion of his face.

• A 39–year–old Savannah man is being charged in the June 2011 disappearance of Christopher Allen Mooney. Anthony Ingram has been charged with the murder of the 52–year–old Savannah auto salesman who was reported missing from his cottage on the 200 block of East 52nd Street on June 6, 2011. Ingram was served at the Chatham County Detention Center where he was being held on other charges. A search of his residence led police to open a missing person investigation but they continued to consider the possibility of foul play. The victim’s body has not been found. Detectives remained in close contact with the Mooney family throughout the investigation. The family issued the following statement: “We would like to thank the Savannah–Chatham Metropolitan Police Department, and especially Detective Jonathan Puhala, for all of their hard work and persistence on this case.

We’ve heard plenty. We have, for starters, been apprised of the EMP menace in a prescient 1993 column by (ahem) me. Admittedly I was suggesting EMP as a way of silencing obnoxious car stereos, which some may feel indicated a nonserious attitude toward the subject. Let me make up for that as best I can now. EMP could be, in theory, really bad. Although EMP was understood in a general way back in Manhattan Project days, its potentially devastating impact didn’t sink in until 1962, when the Starfish Prime atomic test over the Pacific unexpectedly wreaked electromagnetic havoc in Honolulu, 900 miles away. Hundreds of streetlights were knocked out, burglar alarms went off all over, and interisland phone service was disrupted. The electromagnetic energy generated by a nuclear detonation actually consists of three distinct pulses. The first, called E1, attacks solid-state electronics such as computers, cell phones, and televisions. The second pulse, E2, is similar to a lightning strike and can be stopped by surge protection, provided said protection wasn’t destroyed by the E1 pulse. The E3 pulse, perhaps the most insidious, is a slow, long-duration surge that attacks power transmission lines and other electrical infrastructure. Scary, but why are people freaking out about EMP now? The first reason is that although the end of the Cold War has reduced the odds of a nuclear holocaust, the proliferation of atom bomb technology has increased the chances of other types of nuclear attack.

Is it true an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) would stop cars and trucks, and they would not run until fixed? Would our stores be empty of food because trucks could not move? Would water to our homes stop flowing because of EMP damage to electrical equipment? Why don’t we hear more about this? —Mark Terry, Honolulu

An adroitly targeted EMP assault could cripple a country’s high technology while not directly killing anyone, reducing the likelihood of nuclear retaliation. In 1999 members of the Russian Duma, upset over NATO bombings in Yugoslavia, hinted about an EMP attack in response. Currently eight countries besides the U.S. could unleash a nuclear EMP assault, and ten others may be able to swing it soon. The second reason for renewed fear of EMP is that we’re becoming increasingly dependent on fragile electronics. Back in 1993 the Web barely existed, smart phones were unknown, and it wasn’t unheard of to find vacuum tubes and non-electronic controls at power plants and industrial facilities. Today there’s vulnerable circuitry in just about everything. Predictably, this fact has inspired apocalyptic scenarios: imagine if every computer and embedded microchip east of the Mississippi stopped working! You might want to dust off the typewriter. And prepare to put some serious time in on that bike—critical automotive electronics could indeed be fried. Recognizing the situation, Congress established a commission to assess the EMP threat. In 2008 the commission reported a couple small nuclear devices exploded in the right places could shut down 70 percent or more of the U.S. power system. Fixing it could take a while—some components, such as very high voltage transformers, can’t be produced quickly. Our natural gas infrastructure would likely also be knocked out, and much of our telecommunications capability would be destroyed. Scoffers may be inclined to dismiss EMP as another faddish concern of professional worrywarts. A successful assault would require mastery of complex technologies, and North Korea, for one, has been having a helluva time just getting rockets to work. However, the real danger may not originate in Pyongyang or Tehran but in that bundle of uncontrollable energy overhead. Every so often the sun unleashes geomagnetic storms powerful enough to destroy transformers and cause blackouts. The 1859 Carrington solar storm, the strongest ever recorded, was so powerful that sparks from the currents induced in telegraph wires set paper on fire. If a storm like that were to happen in the age of the iPad, in the twinkling of an eye our entire civilization might be shut d —

news & Opinion JUL 4-JUL 10, 2012 | WWW.CONNECTSAVANNAH.COM


news of the weird Culinary Sleight of Pan Slaved Over a Hot Stove: Delivering gourmet meals to customers’ doors is a fast-growing business model, with chefs in nearly every large modern city trying to cash in. So far, perhaps only London’s brand-new Housebites goes the extra step. According to its press release, cited by Huffington Post in June, Housebites not only homedelivers “restaurant quality” cuisine (at the equivalent of about $15 to $20 per entry), but offers an optional dirty-pans service (about $8 extra), lending out the containers in which the food was prepared, thus allowing clients entertaining guests to display “evidence” of their culinary skills and hard work.

Government in Action • Big Fish: The U.S. Department of Justice has been widely criticized for failing to bring to fruition investigations of Wall Street traders’ alleged lies (such as accusations that the firm MFS Global made bets on European bonds by illegally using clients’ money, of which CEO Jon Corzine suspiciously professed to be unaware). However, in several notable instances, its investigators have been relentless — for instance, prosecuting baseball’s Roger Clemens for lying to Congress and, in January, indicting marine biologist Nancy Black, who faces 20 years in prison for allegedly lying to investigators about whether her crew might have illegally fed whales to attract their attention for a boatload of whale-watchers.

• The government office in Liverpool, England, that takes applications for benefits from disabled persons acknowledged in March that it needed to relocate. The office’s parking garage is 13 stories high, but that still requires visitors to climb two more flights of stairs from that level to reach the offices. A Liverpool Council statement admitted that the office was “not (in) the ideal location.”

Government Grants for Everybody!

every day.” • The Indispensability of Arts and Crafts: (1) There are not enough video games, according to the National Endowment for the Arts, which in April awarded a $40,000 grant to the University of Southern California to help produce another, based on Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden.” (2) Australia’s Council for the Arts announced in May that it would give A$20,000 (U.S. equivalent, $20,380) to the “deathJust don’t call metal” band Ouroboros, him severus citing the band’s distinct snape... genre and its need for a symphony orchestra for its next album. Said the drummer, “We wouldn’t consider hiring an orchestra to do this without (the grant).”

• Worth Every Penny: (1) In April, police chief John Crane of Gadsden, Ala., learned that his department has owned, for two years, two unmanned aerial drones. He said he has no idea why they were purchased (at about $150,000), but that local taxpayers need not worry since they came with a federal law enforcement grant. (2) NBC Bay Area reports periodically on uses of 2009 federal stimulus money distributed in the San Francisco area, and in May revealed that the University of California, San Francisco, had received $1.2 million to interview 200 men on what effect being overweight has on their sex lives. A government budget activist decried funding a “sex study over fixing bridges and roads that are crumbling

Great Art! • In May, performance artist Stuart Ringholt opened his show, at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, naked. His pieces (a hodge-podge of exhibits on current art-world commentaries) were secondary to his insistence that all visitors to the show also shuck their clothing. His subtext, he said, was to explore reactions to extreme embarrassment (and told a New York Times correspondent that in an earlier self-shaming display, he had stood by a marble fountain for 20 minutes,

dressed formally but with toilet paper trailing from his trousers). According to a dispatch from Sydney, Ringholt was joined by 48 nude-yet-nonplussed patrons — 32 men and 16 women. • London’s Hayward Gallery staged an exhibition in June of “invisible art” — pieces that depend almost completely on the imaginations of viewers. For example, “1000 Hours of Staring” by Tom Friedman is a blank piece of paper that Friedman eyeballed off and on over five years before deciding that the object was finished and displayready. Friedman also “submitted” an empty section of floor space, which he said was once cursed by a witch. Also there: an Andy Warhol bare platform that looks like it should have something resting on it, but doesn’t, and, by Yoko Ono, a typed set of instructions urging patrons to imagine some stuff.

Police Report • Germany’s Spiegel reported in April that police in Hamburg had charged a 33-year-old man with 96 burglaries based in part on the “ear prints” he left at each scene when he leaned against a front door to detect whether anyone was home. DNA and fingerprints were also collected, said a police source, but “earprints are of similar value as fingerprints in terms of evidence.” • Easy Collar: Kalvin Hulvey, 35, was charged with attempted auto theft in Tulsa, Okla., in June after jumping into Jeremy Penny’s van and fleeing. Penny and his dad took up the chase and caught Hulvey. Said Penny later,

Pervo-Americans Charles Marshall, 28, was arrested in Cincinnati in June and charged, for the fourth time in two years, with crimes involving exposing himself and simulating sex with a teddy bear. (It was not reported whether it was the same teddy bear.)

Least Competent Criminals You Would Think ...: (1) In June, Logan Schwab, 20, who used to work at the police department in Carlisle, Pa., was seen on surveillance video sneaking into an office at the station, prying open a desk, and taking away $200 to $300 in parking-ticket money. (2) In Panama City, Fla., in May, Michael Marquez, 34 (who had been arrested with another man after being caught fighting over suspected stolen goods), was seen snatching a clock off the wall of the room in which he was

being interrogated. He had stuffed it into his backpack when an officer left the room briefly, but was recorded on surveillance video.

Recurring Themes In the U.S., most preschoolers who parade down pageant runways with their mothers cheering them are 5and 6-year-olds. Britain’s upcoming Miss Mini Princess U.K. will probably feature Eleanor June Rees-Sutherland, who has yet to reach her second birthday. Though Eleanor June’s father disapproves, Mom Robyn told the London’s Daily Mail that Eleanor June is a born pageant contestant (“such a girly girl”) who loves to wear makeup and nail polish, and already owns a wardrobe of 20 dresses and 15 pairs of shoes. Robyn seems assured that pedophiles pose no threat: “I don’t think there’s anything sexy about a child who’s dressed like a little princess.” cs

The Black Sabbath influences come through (very) loud and clear on Gnarmageddon, the debut CD by this young, Savannah–based heavy–rock aggregate. Matt Collett, Jeff Hinely, Lee Vallier, Christian Mosely and Colin Motlagh have all been on the Savannah band scene for years — see if these names ring a bell: Hyaena, Casual Kill, Amicalola, The Gray Area, The Round Table, Listen to Three, Permanent Tourist, Voodoo Soup ... you get the idea. These guys know how to play hard. “We all grew up sneaking into the punk shows at 2424 and Velvet Elvis, and playing in punk, hardcore, and metal bands,” says guitarist and singer Collett, “with the exception of Colin, who grew up more on the mainstream side of things.” With axe–wielders Hinely and Mosely, it’s a three–guitar

squad. Motlagh is the bassist, Vallier the drummer. This show serves as the CD Release Part for Gnarmageddon, which was produced by Peter Seeba at Bring That, Don’t Bring That! Studios. Adds Collett: “We all have a very wide range of influences and musical background, and when we’re not at work or at practice in this band, are all still starting other projects and picking up gigs with whoever we can to stay busy playing music. “We are lucky to have grown up in such a diverse and awesome local music scene and have so many bands to look up to and be inspired by, as well as such an awesome venue as the Jinx to let us play there.”

The Raleigh area’s premiere funk band, Big Something – playing the Wormhole July 10 — is known for playing in costumes, theatrical interludes and laser–lit surprises. “We want people to have fun and have a good time,” says Nick MacDaniels (vocals, mandolin, guitar). “Flags, bubbles, light up glow things, one big, massive organism.” The six–piece party band (formerly known as Anonymous) also has a sax player and makes liberal use of keyboards and funky synths.

Edwin McCain scored his one and only big hit in 1998 with “I’ll Be,” an optimistic and heartfelt love ballad. It’s one of the most–played songs at weddings all over the country.


The song’s success was sweet for the South Carolina–born McCain, whose career was, at that point, veering dangerously close to the skids. He’d exploded out of the Charleston club scene, signed to a major record label (Atlantic) following the meteoric rise of his friends in Hootie & the Blowfish. For a time, he’d been hailed as the Next Big Thing. Just two years after “I’ll Be,” he was off the label, and before you could say “Whatever happened to Edwin McCain?” he was once again an independent artist, still writing great songs, still touring and still thrilling an enormous and devoted base of fans. These days, the 42–year–old McCain is a contented father of three who loves his wife, drives his kids to school every day and thanks God for getting him off booze, and ego, and far away from the hard–living rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle. “I don’t think I can ever look back and say I didn’t take

“Fatherhood,” says Edwin McCain, “is the most challenging and rewarding thing I’ve ever done. The hardest job you love completely. It puts things into perspective.”

the whole ride,” McCain says philosophically. “I don’t wish for those days at all. It was exactly what we were going to do when we were in our 20s — I had a good time — all of that was part of growing up. Part of becoming who I am now. “I don’t look back on it with any regret, but I certainly wouldn’t go back.” He performs two weekends out of every month, more or less, and his 10th album, the well–received Mercy Bound, came out last August on 429 Records. McCain learned a valuable lesson during his time in the majors. “Part of the learning process was finding out that more is just more, bigger is just bigger,” he explains, “and it’s not necessarily more powerful or more valid, as far as visibility and record sales and all those things go. “The faster it came, the faster it went away. Just in the years we were with Atlantic, I saw hundreds of artists come and go. To me, it started seeming like the quickest way to never be heard from again. “My intention from the very beginning was to see how long I could do this. It wasn’t ever about getting in, making a bunch of loot and getting out. But there were many people whose goals were exactly that. If that’s what your goal was, the big label was the place for you.” Atlantic, McCain says, pulled its support of anyone and anything from Charleston following what he terms the “Hootie Backlash”: The band was perhaps the biggest success story of the 1990s with its multi–platinum Cracked Rear View album, but starting with its followup, they couldn’t get arrested. “It resonated through the record company once there was a concerted effort to lower the exposure of Hootie & the

Tyler Hilton entered the national consciousness via the TV series One Tree Hill, on the old WB network. For nine seasons (with a break in the middle), he played the arrogant wise–ass musician Chris Keller, who sang memorable duets with Bethany Joy Lenz’ Haley (among other things).



Top of the Hill

Singer/songwriter Tyler Hilton moves ahead of his TV fame by Bill DeYoung |

In the film Walk the Line, Hilton made an indelible impression as Elvis Presley, a drinking pal of the young Johnny Cash. He played the school bully who forms an unholy alliance with principal Robert Downey Jr, in Charlie Bartlett. Yet the California–born Hilton, who’ll appear Thursday, July 5 at Saddle Bags, is an accomplished singer and songwriter who sets his sights early on a music career. He’s more than just a pretty–boy object of teen adulation. His music is soulful and from–the– heart, blending elements of rock, folk, pop and country (his most recent album, Forget the Storm, appeared in April). He often duets with Taylor Swift, and in fact appeared in her video for the hit “Teardrops on My Guitar.” We caught up with the thoughtful 28–year–old on the phone from Dublin, where he was performing in front of rapturous audiences. One Tree Hill, in reruns, is currently a big success on U.K. television.

just something that I do, and everything else feels a bit more like work. I’ve always really liked acting, a lot. I did it in high school. The first thing I ever did was Walk the Line — they wanted musicians, and they wanted people that didn’t act. It was kind of an awesome opportunity to play someone I loved. And the same thing with One Tree Hill, they were looking for musicians to do a cameo. It wasn’t even supposed to be a character. So I’ve just kind of gotten lucky because of the fact that I was a musician. And because I had other things on my resume, I was able to get the audition for Charlie Bartlett. And I guess I was good enough to get it, which blew me away. But it’s all just kind of been random, you know? I think it would be unfair to call me a full-time or professional actor, because of everyone who acts full– time, and they’ve studied it and stuff, I wouldn’t feel quite right. I haven’t spent that much time doing it. I just happen to a be a singer/songwriter that got lucky enough to be in some movies.

Which came first for you, music or acting?

Tell me about your musical influences. Did I hear that you were something of an Elvis–head?

Tyler Hilton: It was music; I kind of fell backwards into acting, honestly just being lucky. But I’ve been playing music for a long time, and my family are all musicians. I don’t know if I could shake it that easily, either. It’s

Tyler Hilton: I really liked Elvis because I think he took so many different styles of music, but he executed them so well, everything from country to rock ‘n’ roll to blues to gospel ...

Exhibit at Beach Institute chronicles changing attitudes by Jim Morekis | ‘Nine Hanging’ by Ricardo Diaz

w/ SpecIAl GUeST


A small but worthwhile exhibit has extended its run through the summer. “Art at War: Changing Attitudes” is a look at the shift in the way artists have portrayed warfare over the centuries.

TUES. JUlY 10 | 8 PM | FREE





OPEN MIC COMEDY “A haven for indie film, live music and literary readings.”-NYT

Curated by the local Hurn Museum and featuring several works from their own collection, the show is actually hosted by the Beach Institute on Harris. The one–room exhibit at the Beach is in rough chronological order, beginning with a print of “Oath of the Horatii” by Jacques–Louis David, chronicler of and propagandist for the French Revolution. The glorification of self–sacrifice –– in this case the three strapping sons of Horatious –– is a hallmark of early depictions of war, many of which were specifically intended to support

war efforts of one kind or another. All that begins to change with the groundbreaking work of Goya, whose searing depictions of loss and senseless brutality in the Spanish theatre of the Napoleonic Wars marked perhaps the first time an artist worked in a contemporary realistic/journalistic style to portray war’s inhumanity. Some Goya prints are featured, as well as a print of the iconic work “Guernica” by Picasso. But the original works are of course the heart of the show. One of the artists showing original work at “Art at

War” is Matt Sesow of Washington DC, who explained his process to us. “The main thing I try to do is reflect the times I live in. I comment on current events and political realities I see all around me,” he says. “Living in Washington especially gives a certain sense of urgency and allows me to make pictorial documents of things going on.” A particularly interesting annual project of Sesow’s is “31 Days of July,” with this year’s edition underway as we speak. “I’ve done ‘31 Days of July’ since 2003,” he says. “How it works is, I get up in the morning and take the top story from the newspaper or internet, and start painting about it. By the end of the month I will have 31 paintings sort of chronicling all the

developments of that July.” Sesow’s particular circumstances allow him a form of insight into the violent results of war. “I was actually hit by an airplane at age 8,” he says. “I was living in Nebraska at the time. An airplane literally landed on me. It’s hard to explain.” That freak accident — while certainly not the product of war or civil unrest — nonetheless resulted in the amputation of much of his left arm. “A lot of people these days, especially since 9/11 and Iraq, just assume I’m back from the service,” he says. “I’m not, but I can relate to a soldier’s struggle as far as having a near–death experience that results from a traumatic injury.” While Sesow stresses that soldiers too, not just civilians and prisoners,

can often be victims of the dehumanization of modern war, he is strongly anti–war in sentiment. “I’m against any kind of senseless occupation, or imperialism, or plutocracy sort of calling all the shots,” he says. “The whole post–9/11 era really influenced me. I could see the smoke from the Pentagon from my window.” “Art at War” is a modest show, so I strongly recommend visiting the other displays on hand at the Beach Institute, including the expansive and mindblowing collection of woodwork by great Savannah artist Ulysses Davis. cs Art at War: Changing Attitudes What: Exhibit curated by Hurn Museum When: Through Aug. 30 Where: Beach Institute, Harris and Price

If there is but one reason to visit Tubby’s it would be the shrimp.

Shrimp Central Tubby’s Tank House in Thunderbolt is darned near an institution. Its popular sunset happy hour on Thursday sometimes swells to monumental proportions, and its venue for local bands has provided many upstarts with a viable stage.

Located on the lane just south of Oglethorpe. 495-0902 Tues 11:30-3 Wed-Sat 11:30-6

Of all local eateries, Tubby’s comes closest to presenting a true, comprehensive seafood menu. A variety of daily fresh catch is available, and staples like locally caught shrimp come fried, steamed and in special dishes. If there’s but one reason to visit Tubby’s it would be the shrimp. I learned last year that the restaurant company to which Tubby’s belongs has its own source. Those shrimp are fresh in season, and during season are quick frozen to provide a consistent flavor, size and quality all year round. Obviously, I ordered shrimp: The simple shrimp basket served with a choice of potatoes (I chose French fries). The shrimp were perfectly prepared: Crisp on the outside with a flavored, crunchy breading and sweet and tender on the inside. The shrimp had a nice snap when bitten and the portion of six pieces was a good size

for this casual lunch served in a plastic basket. What may perplex some diners is the price tag — $12.95. In the scheme of things, given fresh shrimp prices, this is a very fair price. Still, with a beverage and a tip – it’s a $20 lunch and that’s daunting. Several members of my group ordered a bargain priced lunch special, but our server came back to tell us that all the lunch specials were sold out. Since we arrived at 11:30, it’s a fair bet that there weren’t many lunch specials prepared. The service for my large group was very good, with the only bobble at the end when I asked for my check in order to get to an appointment. I sought out the server to handle the transaction quickly and quietly. Instead, she instructed, “Sit down. I’m working on it.” Alrighty then.

Draft beer service was down, which disappointed my guests, and the bottle list is very pedestrian. Adding a good craft beer by the bottle might be a great idea. Count on consistency, high quality and a busy dining room — and definitely try the shrimp. 2909 River Dr., Thunderbolt/354–5903

So long ya big wiener

The sign on the door at SubDogs Hotdoggery says “Closed Tuesday, June 26. Thx!” But on June 28, the sign was still there and all the furniture was gone. Safe bet is that this dog is gone. Too bad. SubDogs added a nice option to the usual quick casual sub sandwich glut that exists downtown.

Perhaps it’s best to think of Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider–Man and Marc Webb’s 2012 The Amazing Spider–Man as the cinematic equivalents of Coke Classic and New Coke. Despite some alterations to the source material (hey, where’s Gwen Stacy?), the Raimi take earned the trust of most purists, offering a near–perfect Peter Parker in Tobey Maguire, treating the origin story in appropriate fashion (right down to the introduction of Spidey in that wrestling ring), and adding the right dash of humor that was long present in the comic book created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

Webb’s new version, on the other hand, is an unnecessary variation on the real thing, sweetening the formula to go down easier for today’s sugar–rush audiences. Suddenly, Peter Parker is no longer the ultimate outsider, the self–deprecating, geeky kid who locates the hero buried deep within himself. Now, he’s the poster boy for the iPhone generation, a surly hipster who, oh yeah, just happens to also be a superhero. As before, the teenage Peter Parker

(Andrew Garfield) is bitten by a scientifically enhanced spider and finds himself blessed with newfound abilities. He also suffers the loss of his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen), a development that leaves him guilt–ridden since it was in his power to stop his uncle’s killer before the murder took place. New to the origin tale, though, is a plotline involving Peter’s father (Campbell Scott), a scientist who had been working on a secret formula before he and his wife (Embeth Davidtz) abruptly took

off, leaving a much younger Peter in the care of Uncle Ben and Aunt May (Sally Field). The teenage Peter now seeks out his dad’s former colleague, Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans); their collaboration will eventually lead to Dr. Connors turning into The Lizard and providing Spider–Man with his first super–villain challenge. The film’s problems begin with the casting of Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. It was easy to believe that Maguire’s Parker would be a high– school whipping boy, but Garfield? The actor tries his hardest, but when it looks as if Peter Parker just stepped out of a GQ photo shoot (right down to the perfectly coifed hair), it’s hard to take him seriously as someone who’s perpetually ignored by girls and harassed by guys. Far more believable is Emma Stone as Peter’s lady love Gwen Stacy, while Sheen is a sensible choice to play Uncle Ben. Field, on the other hand, is far too young to be playing Aunt May – who approved that casting, Forrest Gump?– while The Lizard isn’t nearly as memorable a villain as one might have reasonably

assumed. Visually, the picture strikes all the right notes (even if Spidey’s swings are a bit too neatly choreographed), although the same can’t be said for a script that went through at least two revisions before reaching the screen. What’s most surprising – and frustrating – about the film is that there’s little human dimension to it. Raimi took time out to examine the everyday lives of Maguire’s Peter and Kirsten Dunst’s Mary Jane Watson – their discussion of future plans, her miserable home life with a drunken father, etc. – but Garfield’s Peter and Gwen are given little time for such introspection, with the script busily racing from one crisis or conspiracy to the next. What’s more, Webb’s movie is on the whole rather humorless: Aside from the hilarious (and obligatory) Stan Lee cameo, there are few throwaway gags on the level of Raimi’s inclusion of a Lucy Lawless cameo or the street musician’s mangling of the theme song from the Spider–Man TV cartoon. All of this isn’t to say that this

reboot should completely get the boot. On the contrary, The Amazing Spider–Man is acceptable hot– weather entertainment, filled with the types of colorful characters, frenetic action sequences and high–flying special effects we’ve come to expect from our multiplex outings.



Rude, raunchy and decidedly non– PC, Ted is the sort of movie for which trailers serve no purpose, since they can’t convey the R–rated content in PG–approved snippets. In fact, even the adults–only “red band” trailer plays it relatively safe – actually a good thing, since that just reserves more out–of–left–field hilarity for the actual viewing experience. The idea of Mark Wahlberg and a talking teddy bear sounds as potentially disastrous as Mel Gibson and a talking beaver sock–puppet, but writer–director Seth MacFarlane manages to wring every last drop of comic potential out of this dubious premise. We first meet Ted during the 1980s, when friendless child John Bennett receives him as an ordinary Christmas present and, thanks to a well–timed falling star, discovers that his wish to have a live teddy bear has come true. (“It’s a Christmas miracle!” declares John’s mom. “Like baby Jesus!”) Ted naturally becomes a celebrity, even appearing alongside Johnny Carson in a bit of Forrest–Gump– meets–JFK sleight of hand, but like other child celebrities (“Corey Feldman ... Frankie Muniz,” the narrator reminds us), he’s been long forgotten over the ensuing decades, and he now spends his time on the couch, sharing bong hits with the grown–up John (Wahlberg) and repeatedly watching their favorite movie from their formative years, 1980’s Flash Gordon (“So bad, but so good,” states John, the best review ever given for this wonderful

bit of cult kitsch). John has a beauteous, loving girlfriend in Lori (Mila Kunis), and while she’s been generally good–natured about the friendship between John and Ted, she realizes that it’s time John accepts adult responsibility so they might consider a real life together. She basically makes John choose between her and the bear, and it’s to the film’s credit that she’s not presented as an overbearing (no pun intended) shrew but as the most sensible person in the picture. John does indeed give adult life a try, and Ted even gets his own apartment and lands a job as a grocery store clerk (what he does on the job with two bottles of lotion is so naughty that the scene was even edited for the “red band” trailer!). But with so many parties to attend and so many bongs to tap, it’s hard for the best buds to remain apart for long. Prostitutes, rich doofuses, fat kids, 9/11, Jews, 80s music, Susan Boyle, James Franco, testicular cancer – pretty much everything’s open for funny business in Ted. But favorably adding to the mirth are some superb cameos – not the lazy sorts that mark too many other modern comedies, but ones that are expertly woven into the fabric of the story. Whether he’s wooing Kunis or roughhousing with Ted, Wahlberg is a lively presence in this film, and the scene in which he serves up a stream– of–conciousness tear through “white trash” girl names is an improvisational tour de force. As for Ted, we have no problem accepting him as a living, breathing entity, thanks to the superb effects work that seamlessly places him in the thick of the action. To be honest, I’m more impressed with the comparatively low–tech look of Ted than the been–there–done– that razzle dazzle of The Amazing Spider–Man – a startling declaration that might make some wonder if I’ve spent too much time myself on that couch with the bong–banging bear.



Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are best known as action–script specialists, whipping out screenplays both good (the Star Trek reboot, TV’s Alias) and bad (Transformers, Cowboys and Aliens), so it’s a modest surprise to see their names attached to the family drama People Like Us.



Brave not only focuses on a memorable heroine but also takes the time to delve into a mother–daughter relationship. Couple this with the fact that this marks the first Pixar movie directed by a woman, and it all sounds like a forward step for this animated boys’ club in at least until one examines the evidence. For one thing, director Brenda Chapman didn’t finish making the film, replaced at some point by Mark Andrews. Was she fired? Did she walk off the set? Did she get struck down by some mysterious illness? Chapman is also credited for

small plane might be able to help, and so off they go, hitting the road with an abandoned mutt in tow. Seeking a Friend takes care not to turn into a standard comedy about a mismatched odd couple. Carell and Knightley are excellent in their respective roles, never overplaying the sentiment and making us believe that their characters can go about their lives even when they know said lives will soon be ending.



Yeah, that’s a living teddy bear on a couch with four women. Ted is that kind of movie.

coming up with the original story and screenplay for Brave, but as the movie subsequently went through three other writers, perhaps she was displeased with the direction the project took. I wouldn’t be surprised: Brave is a perfectly pleasant outing, but for a Pixar release, it’s frighteningly tame and conventional, with little of the complexity that has marked the majority of the studio’s past efforts. If nothing else, Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) makes for a vibrant heroine: With marble–smooth skin, flaming red hair seemingly modeled after early–90s Nicole Kidman, and archery skills to rival those of Robin Hood, she’s a spirited Scottish lass who, in the best animated tradition, longs for independence and adventure. Her rambunctious father, King Fergus (Billy Connolly), admires her earthiness and athletic abilities, but her mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), ix nays such activities, insisting that Merida behave like a proper lady in order to land a suitable husband. Why Elinor would want her lovely daughter to marry any of the three clods presented as spousal material makes little sense, but never mind: After Merida shows up her suitors, the two women have it out, resulting in Merida storming out of the castle and right into a curse that will unite the pair in ways they couldn’t have foreseen. There’s emotional resonance in the way the bond between Merida and Elinor evolves over the course of the picture, but it just barely compensates for the nonstarter nature of the big twist that propels all the second–half action. As with all Pixar efforts, this is

visually outstanding, and there’s plenty of rowdy humor to keep audiences entertained. But for a supposedly progressive film, Brave is marked by a notable amount of timidity.



Seeking a Friend is small in scope and focus, even as it touches upon enormous issues. The narrative states that an asteroid is heading to Earth, and as we join the story, we learn that all hope is lost and the planet will only be inhabitable for another few weeks. The beauty of the screenplay by writer–director Lorene Scafaria is how it views the different ways in which people might react to their impending doom. Every single avenue of action rings true. Some party 24/7, fueled by illegal, hardcore drugs. Others continue to show up for work, as if nothing were out of the ordinary. Yet others have wild, unprotected sex, no longer bound by traditions of matrimony or fears of pregnancy or disease. The survivalists retreat into underground shelters, figuring they can wait out the impending ice age or whatever Nature has in store. Unable to be with his “true love,” the college sweetheart that got away, Dodge (Steve Carell) pretty much just wants to be left alone, a desire that goes unfulfilled after he makes the acquaintance of his neighbor Penny (Keira Knightley). This British lass just wants to make it back to England to be with her family, which proves to be difficult since the major airlines have all shut down. Dodge suggests that an acquaintance who owns a

Based on the popular Broadway show, Rock of Ages isn’t good enough to recommend and isn’t bad enough to qualify as a worthwhile guilty pleasure. Instead, it’s a sanitized pop show that makes rock ‘n’ roll seem about as raw, reckless and dangerous as a class of kindergartners singing “Itsy Bitsy Spider.” If real rock were as toothless as what’s presented here, Tipper Gore would never have bothered to launch her Holy Crusade back circa the time of the film’s 1987 setting. There’s a Tipper surrogate in the form of Patricia Whitmore (Catherine Zeta–Jones), the conservative wife of the Los Angeles mayor (Bryan Cranston) who’s determined to use their combined political clout to clean up the city. She plans to start with the Bourbon Room, a struggling nightclub owned by Dennis Dupree (Alec Baldwin). The Bourbon Room will close if Dennis can’t come up with a lot of cash fast, and he pins all his hopes on an appearance by Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise), a perpetually wasted rock star who pals around with a monkey named Hey Man and stresses out his oily manager (Paul Giamatti) to no end. Stacee Jaxx treats everyone like dirt, a character flaw which doesn’t go unnoticed by a Rolling Stone reporter (Malin Akerman) who nevertheless finds herself attracted to this bad–boy rocker. Some of the veterans don’t fare much better. Zeta–Jones, so compelling in her Oscar–winning Chicago turn, looks uncomfortable lurching her way through musical numbers set to Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me with Your Best Shot.” Russell Brand is largely wasted as Dennis’ right–hand man, while Baldwin sings about as well as I figure skate. Others, like Giamatti and Akerman, fare better, although Hall of Fame honors clearly go to Cruise for his radical performance. CS


Maybe they needed a break from crafting gems for Optimus Prime to speak (“At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall!”), or maybe they figured this was their Oscar– winning Ordinary People –– at any rate, the middling result will doubtless send them scurrying back to the various cash cows grazing in their fields. People Like Us works in spurts, but that’s almost entirely due to the contributions of its actors. Chris Pine plays hustling businessman Sam, who learns after his estranged father’s death that the old man had a second family on the side. Sam visits Frankie (Elizabeth Banks), the half–sister he never knew he had, but rather than reveal his identity, he elects to bide his time and pose as a concerned AA colleague instead. This narrative contrivance, which has been employed so often in movies that it deserves both a retirement party and a funeral, blocks scripters Kurtzman (who also directed), Orci and Jody Lambert from ever fully delving into the worthy subjects of familial betrayal and reconciliation, keeping viewers as distant from the characters as the characters are from each other. Some superlative turns help significantly: Michael Hall D’Addario never makes an open play for sympathy as Frankie’s troubled son, while Olivia Wilde brings some outsider perspective as Sam’s sensible girlfriend. Best of all is Banks as the harried single mom who’s repeatedly being dealt right cross punches every time she turns around. Come to think of it, Banks is frequently the best thing about any movie in which she appears – tell me again why she isn’t a huge star?

March 21–April 19 Members of the Nevada Republican Party have concocted a bizarre version of family values. A large majority of them are opposed to gay marriage and yet are all in favor of legal brothels. Their wacky approach to morality is as weird as that of the family values crowd in Texas, which thinks it’s wrong to teach adolescents about birth control even though this has led to a high rate of teen pregnancies. My question is, why do we let people with screwed–up priorities claim to be the prime caretakers of “family values”? In accordance with the astrological omens, I urge you to reject the conventional wisdom as you clarify what that term means to you. It’s an excellent time to deepen and strengthen your moral foundation.


April 20–May 20 There’s a term for people who have the ardor of a nymphomaniac in their efforts to gather useful information: *infomaniac.* That’s exactly what I think you should be in the coming week. You need data and evidence, and you need them in abundance. What you don’t know would definitely hurt you, so make sure you find out everything you need to know. Be as thorough as a spy, as relentless as a muckraking journalist, and as curious as a child. P.S. See if you can set aside as many of your strong opinions and emotional biases as possible. Otherwise they might distort your quest for the raw truth. Your word of power is *empirical.*


May 21–June 20 Of all the signs of the zodiac, you’re the best at discovering short cuts. No one is more talented than you at the art of avoiding boredom. And you could teach a master course in how to weasel out of strenuous work without looking like a weasel. None of those virtues will come in handy during the coming week, however. The way I see it, you should concentrate very hard on not skipping any steps. You should follow the rules, stick to the plan, and dedicate yourself to the basics. Finish what you start, please! (Sorry about this grind–it–out advice. I’m just reporting what the planetary

omens are telling me.)

little wild.



The epic breadth of your imagination is legendary. Is there anyone else who can wander around the world without ever once leaving your home? Is there anyone else who can reincarnate twice in the span of few weeks without having to go through the hassle of actually dying? And yet now and then there do come times when your fantasies should be set aside so that you may soak up the teachings that flow your way when you physically venture outside of your comfort zone. Now is such a moment, my fellow Cancerian. Please don’t take a merely virtual break in the action. Get yourself away from it all, even if it’s only to the marvelous diversion or magic sanctuary on the other side of town.

Goldfish that are confined in small aquariums stay small. Those that spend their lives in ponds get much bigger. What can we conclude from these facts? The size and growth rate of goldfish are directly related to their environment. I’d like to suggest that a similar principle will apply to you Librans in the next ten months. If you want to take maximum advantage of your potential, you will be wise to put yourself in spacious situations that encourage you to expand. For an extra boost, surround yourself with broad–minded, uninhibited people who have worked hard to heal their wounds.


Over the years, you’ve explored some pretty exotic, even strange ideas about what characterizes a good time. In the coming days, I’m guessing you will add to your colorful tradition with some rather unprecedented variations on the definition of “pleasure” and “happiness.” I don’t mean to imply that this is a problem. Not at all. To paraphrase the Wiccan credo, as long as it harms no one (including yourself), anything goes.

June 21–July 22

July 23–Aug. 22 In Norse mythology, Fenrir was a big bad wolf that the gods were eager to keep tied up. In the beginning they tried to do it with metal chains, but the beast broke free. Then they commissioned the dwarves to weave a shackle out of six impossible things: a bear’s sinews, a bird’s spit, a fish’s breath, a mountain’s root, a woman’s beard, and the sound a cat’s paws made as it walked. This magic fetter was no thicker than a silk ribbon, but it worked very well. Fenrir couldn’t escape from it. I invite you to take inspiration from this story, Leo. As you deal with your current dilemma, don’t try to fight strength with strength. Instead, use art, craft, subtlety, and even trickery. I doubt you’ll need to gather as many as six impossible things. Three will probably be enough. Two might even work fine.


Aug. 23–Sept. 22 This is a time when your personal actions will have more power than usual to affect the world around you. The ripples you set in motion could ultimately touch people you don’t even know and transform situations you’re not part of. That’s a lot of responsibility! I suggest, therefore, that you be on your best behavior. Not necessarily your mildest, most polite behavior, mind you. Rather, be brave, impeccable, full of integrity, and a

Sept. 23–Oct. 22


Oct. 23–Nov. 21

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22–Dec. 21

There come times in your life when you have a sacred duty to be open to interesting tangents and creative diversions; times when it makes sense to wander around aimlessly with wonder in your eyes and be alert for unexpected clues that grab your attention. But this is not one of those times, in my opinion. Rather, you really do need to stay focused on what you promised yourself you would concentrate on. The temptation may be high to send out sprays of arrows at several different targets. But I hope that instead you stick to one target and take careful aim with your best shots.


(Dec. 22–Jan. 19) I’ve been meditating on a certain need that you have been neglecting, Capricorn –– a need that has been chronically underestimated, belittled, or ignored, by both you and others. I am hoping that this achy longing will soon be receiving some of your smart attention and

tender care. One good way to get the process started is simply to acknowledge its validity and importance. Doing so will reveal a secret that will help you attend to your special need with just the right touch.


Jan. 20–Feb. 18 Due to the pressure–packed influences currently coming to bear on your destiny, you have Official Cosmic Permission to fling three dishes against the wall. (But no more than three.) If you so choose, you also have clearance to hurl rocks in the direction of heaven, throw darts at photos of your nemeses, and cram a coconut cream pie into your own face. Please understand, however, that taking actions like these should be just the initial phase of your master plan for the week. In the next phase, you should capitalize on all the energy you’ve made available for yourself through purgative acts like the ones I mentioned. Capitalize how? For starters, you could dream and scheme about how you will liberate yourself from things that make you angry and frustrated.


Feb. 19–March 20 Check to see if you’re having any of the following symptoms: 1. sudden eruptions of gratitude; 2. a declining fascination with conflict; 3. seemingly irrational urges that lead you to interesting discoveries; 4. yearnings to peer more deeply into the eyes of people you care about; 5. a mounting inability to tolerate boring influences that resist transformation; 6. an increasing knack for recognizing and receiving the love that’s available to you. If you’re experiencing at least three of the six symptoms, you are certifiably in close alignment with the cosmic flow, and should keep doing what you’ve been doing. If none of these symptoms have been sweeping through you, get yourself adjusted.
