News & Opinion editor’s note

Some guys have all the luck by Jim Morekis | jim@connectsavannah.com

Welcome to our annual St. Patrick’s Day special issue. Inside you’ll find pretty much all the info you need to enjoy the big weekend, from your basic parade/parking type stuff to a bit of Irish history to an exhaustive entertainment roundup. In addition to the goofy new wristband/ to-go cup idea — requiring you to pay five bucks to do what you could do for free the rest of the year, but only in a gerrymandered area euphemistically called the “Festival Zone” — the other big development this year is the robust ramping-up of the local band presence during the festivities, chronicled by Bill DeYoung inside. Bill also takes a gander at the traditional Irish music taking place over the weekend, centering on the activity at Kevin Barry’s Irish Pub on River Street. Jessica Leigh Lebos takes a closer look at the wristband issue, as well as contributing

her personal take on what it means to be Irish — when you’re not actually Irish. We like to have fun with the St. Patrick’s cover, and this year is no exception. We got in touch with Joshua Branstetter of Jabberpics.com, who delivered both in concept and in execution, with much thanks to the folks at Meddin Studios. The naughty duo on the cover this week is Jessica Schwartz and Stephen King. Additional models are Savannah Christine and our own contributing writer/Stopover Twitter goddess Jenny Dunn. Makeup for the shoot was by Katherine Taylor.

The other big development in our lives here at Connect involves our brand-new website. You’ll be hearing more about the new connectsavannah.com in the coming weeks, but suffice to say we’re exhilarated by the look, feel, and response. At the new connectsavannah.com we continue to expand our events and listings database to be by far the most comprehensive and searchable in the area. As a member you can make lists and save your favorite locations, events and stories. Want to add an event to your personal calendar? Click the ‘add to ical’ button next to any event. Want to be reminded of a particular event? Click the ‘remind me’ link next to any event and you can have a reminder emailed or texted to you. Local movie times are constantly available and updated.

The girls are Jenny Dunn (with the Jack Daniels bottle in the pic on the left), Savannah Christine (with the Bud Light bottle in the pic on the left), and cover girl Jessica Schwartz, prior to being doused with green liquid.

Welcome to the week of green, when Savannah rivals Oz for the title of Emerald City. With St. Patrick’s Day preparations and pre-partying in full effect, the enthusiasm is as contagious as the bubonic plague, without the fleas. The line around here goes that everyone’s a wee bit Irish on St. Patrick’s Day in Savannah, leprechaun DNA or not. But how does a person go about feeling authentically Irish in order to join the fun? The soused gentleman observed dancing a jig in front of Congress Street Social Club Saturday night may disagree, but I’m positive it takes more than a vat of Jameson and a shamrock-shaped loincloth. History is always an excelContrary to this author’s belief, swimming in green lent place to begin.

20-year greening veteran Baby Boy Pinckney assured me that the product he was surreptitiously adding at the fountain’s pump to speed things along was not Soylent Green but a food-grade dye manufactured by Pylam Products. He added that it takes about a day to flush the fountain clear again with chlorine bleach. All perfectly non-toxic, but swimming is still not recommended as it comes with a $1,000 fine.) To find out if one can convert to Irishness, I headed over to Ground Zero for Savannah’s Irish community, the Parade Committee Headquarters on Liberty Street. There I found General Chairman Brendan Sheehan dodging a PR bullet for the parade’s rejection of a group of New York firefighters. He and local firefighter Mike Dodd were explaining to a TV crew that while this particular group’s past bad behavior earned them personae non gratae status this year, there will be plenty of Savannah’s, New York’s and other cities’ finest marching in the parade. Sheehan seemed relieved that all I wanted to know is how to become more involved in the Irish community, though he gently explained that no matter how good my organizational skills I would not be wearing one of the Parade Committee’s snazzy green jackets anytime soon. Or ever. First of all, you have to be nominated basically at birth by another committee member, and then you someone has to pass on to the verdant fields of eternity. Sheehan himself says he waited almost 26 years for his name to come up before he could join the ranks of this most respected organization, a group that works all year long to engineer the country’s second largest St. Patrick’s Day parade. Also, you have to be a man. Now, it is true that it is a tremendous amount of work to host a half million people and make sure the


its spires still breathtaking under its scaffolding cloak. Everyone — even a Jewish girl who can’t cook a decent corned beef to save her life — is welcome at this glorious mass that ends with a procession to Emmett Park. Many say this is the true St. Patrick’s Day Parade. A far cry from our famous drunken ruckus, it’s a sobering testament to how far the Irish community has come and what a triumphant heritage it has to bequeath to future generations. That’s when I realized the true meaning of being Irish in Savannah is to honor faith and family, no matter where you worship or from where your ancestors hail. Hold both close and you’re as green as it gets. Of course, there’s still an epic party to get started. But remember that this is not Mardi Gras and Savannah is not New Orleans. Keep your shirt on (and your pants, for Pete’s sake) and be grateful you were born with the luck of the Irish. cs

News & Opinion

streets run smoothly, but 800 dudes to plan a parade? If the women were in charge, there would only need to be 50 of them and a big ol’ pot of coffee. Just sayin’. If I couldn’t join the parade committee, maybe one of the other Irish organizations would have me. I called my good buddy Chuck Loncon, a member of the Hibernian Society, the country’s oldest Irish cultural society. Established in 1812 on St. Patrick’s Day, the Hibernian Society has always been devoid of religious strife, and Chuck told me one of the society’s founding members, Isaac Minis, was actually Jewish.

Wristbands bandstands City refines to-go cup policy and expands “entertainment zone”

by Jessica Leigh Lebos | jll@connectsavannah.com

The rejection of a group of firefighters by the parade committee might be this year’s juiciest St. Patrick’s Day controversy, but a new to-go cup policy has caused no lack of flap among Savannah residents. For the first time, Savannah’s normally-free privilege of walking around with a drink has a price tag: During St. Patrick’s Day weekend, people drinking alcoholic beverages outdoors anywhere within the newlyexpanded festival zone are required to purchase wristbands for $5. It’s a small tab compared to the alternative: If you’re caught with a cocktail in hand without one, the fine is $67. If you’re under 21, the fine can be up to $1,000. “If you have alcohol on the street, you need to be wearing a wristband,” said Marty Johnston, Director of Special Events for the City of Savannah, at a meeting covering St. Patrick’s Day logistics last Wednesday. Wristbands can be purchased by those 21 and over who show a valid I.D. at one of 20 booths or to several roaming vendors, all of whom have the same “bar cards” that bartenders must have to serve alcohol. Enforcement of the wristband policy will

begin Friday night and go through Sunday morning at 4 a.m., excluding Saturday’s parade. Separate wristbands — in different colors — have to be purchased for Friday and Saturday. The purpose of the wristbands is not to inconvenience but to prevent underage drinking, reiterated Johnston. She encouraged bartenders and proprietors to check I.D.s, even if someone is already wearing a wristband. “College students can be ingenious in the ways they’re going to get a drink,” she reminded. More than 40 local business owners and managers were in attendance at Wednesday’s meeting, including representatives from Bay St. Blues, Molly MacPherson’s and Circa. Over concern whether patrons needed a wristband to drink inside one of the bars within the zone, Johnston clarified that the policy only applies on the street.

“Businesses will not be held responsible when your customers walk out the door with a to-go cup,” she said. “It’s up to the individual consumer.” “But what if they want to go outside to have a cigarette and they don’t have a wristband?” asked one of the attendees. Johnston replied after confirming with Fire Marshal Craig Landolt that smokers did not need to purchase wristbands as long as they were within the 10-foot smoking buffer outside an establishment. A dollar from each $5 wristband will go back to the city to help defray the cost of a weekend that attracts almost a half million people to Savannah, including added security. The rest of the wristband proceeds will be divided among the Savannah Waterfront Association, City Market and the Downtown Business Association and help pay the musicians performing throughout the weekend. On Friday and Saturday, over 40 bands will play on six stages throughout what the city is calling the “entertainment zone”: River Street between MLK Blvd. and E. Broad as well as south to Broughton Lane (encompassing all of Broughton

Street) between MLK Blvd. and Drayton Street. Barricades designate the boundaries of this larger-than-everbefore festival site, designed to keep partygoers in a manageable space. In addition to the new wristband policy, other changes to the St. Patrick’s Day Festival ordinance are the prohibition of coolers, dogs (with the exception of residents who live within the boundaries) and all manner of reptiles (whether they’re part of your outfit or not). Also banned in the zone are bicycles, which SCMPD Lieutenant David Gay explained “can quickly turn from a mode of transportation into a weapon or a projectile.” Though the changes may irk some residents and visitors who aren’t used to them, many who attended the meeting seemed to appreciate the extra effort to keep the peace during the busiest — and potentially most rambunctious — weekend of the year. Overheard from one longtime downtown resident: “If you’ve seen what I’ve seen, all of this sounds pretty reasonable.” cs For complete schedules and updates, follow “SavStPat” on Facebook and Twitter.

St. Patrick’s Day Don’t call it a comeback

After years of official neglect, live music returns to the 2013 festivities with a vengeance

Welcome to St. Patrick’s Day, Savannah Style!

by bill deyoung | bill@connectsavannah.com

If you want to drink an adult beverage outside and enjoy our beautiful downtown area, you need to purchase a wristband each day (Friday & Saturday) for $5. *Wristbands are not required during Saturday’s parade*

Get your wristband at any one of the 22 booth locations downtown. Signs will help direct you to one of the white sales tents to purchase your wristband. Someone will check your ID… so don’t leave that behind! Make sure to hold onto your ID since bars and restaurants are still required to check them, even if you have a wristband on!

Those of us who’ve been complaining about the dearth of live music on River Street over St. Patrick’s Day weekend can just shut up, because this year, it’s baaaack.

If you’re in town for the festive festivities, some of our city’s best musicians are out and about all weekend, day and night, for your partying pleasure. Outdoor music is indeed a big part of the St. Paddy’s atmosphere, and the new and improved Savannah

If you plan to drink in a bar, you do not need a wristband – only if you plan to join the rest of the revelers in the streets. If you don’t have a wristband, you could be asked to pour your drink out or you could be in violation of the city’s Festival Ordinance of 2013. Check out any one of the wristband tents for details or visit riverstreetsavannah.com.

Riverfront organization has gone to great lengths to ensure nobody hits the pause button: There’ll be three separate stages on River Street, and one between Congress and Bryan, on which bands will crank, both Friday and Saturday. City Market’s two stages, too, will be on permanent play for the weekend, as will just about all of the downtown music clubs (some of them, in fact, will have live music starting Saturday afternoon — early for them — and going into the evening, after the parade has wound down). Here’s the complete schedule of who’s playing where, who they are and what they do.

St. Patrick’s Day EAST RIVER STREET STAGE Music

3 p.m. Friday: The Rosies Savannah sisters Kyrsten and Kourtney Roseman have crystalline singing voices, deftly applied to harmony-rich acoustic music that brings to mind early Indigo Girls. Along with a handful of awfully catchy originals, the Rosies play a grabbag of cool covers, from the Avetts and Mumford & Sons to a tear-inducing medley of songs from Les Miserables. New to our city, the siblings have a weekly Tuesday night gig at the River House restaurant. 5 p.m. Friday: Jon Lee’s Apparitions 7 p.m. Friday: Keith & Ross 9 p.m. Friday: Domino Effect A veteran reggae, dub, funk and fusion foursome, Domino Effect includes the estimable singer and guitarist Josh Wade (who plays frequent solo gigs around town), drummer Ben Lewis, second guitarist John Patton and Hunter Sausse on bass. Equal measures Wailers, Police and Passafire, Domino Effect, danceable dub. They’re playing here Saturday night, too. 3 p.m. Saturday: The Positions 5 p.m. Saturday: Aaron Matthew 7 p.m. Saturday: The Train Wrecks And the train just keeps on a-rollin.’ Smack in the middle of recording their third album, in a secluded Effingham County farmhouse, the city’s best-loved rural rude boys roar into town for another hard-driving set of electric Americana.

At 4 p.m. Friday: Thomas Claxton At 6 p.m. Friday: Voodoo Soup At 8 p.m. Friday: Eric Culberson Band Culberson has been a fixture on the Savannah music scene for a quarter century, and for good reason: He is a stunning electric guitarist whose blues chops were defined and refined in every bar, jook joint and roadhouse that ever threw open its doors in Chatman County. Culberson’s trio is a blues-rock dynamo, and his songwriting — which has taken on more of rock edge in recent years — is top-of-thepage solid. He’s also a great singer. If you like ‘em Southern and smokin,’ check out the ECB and you won’t be disappointed. At 10 p.m. Friday: Jared Wade At 3 p.m. Saturday: The Hitman At 6 p.m. Saturday: Turtle Folk Turtle Folk is a Savannah jam band that has existed for a long time but doesn’t perform live all that often any more — it’s deep and expanded electric psychedelia from a bunch of lifelong buds. With Michael McCormick on lead vocals and guitar, Jamie Shanks on guitar and vocals, Joe Pelliccione on lead guitar and vocals, Zack Vogtner on bass and vocals, with drummer Sean Pelliccione and percussionist Ross Sparks. At 8 p.m. Saturday: A Nickel Bag of Funk Consistently voted the city’s best soul/rhythm ‘n’ blues band by the readers of Connect Savannah, Nickel Bag is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Leslie Adele, who is everything a bandleader and frontperson should be — you can’t take your eyes (and ears) off of her. The band is finishing its debut album at Savannah’s Elevated Basement Recording Studio. At 10 p.m. Saturday: Gurufish

At 4 p.m. Friday: Bottles & Cans A lot of bands toss around the word “gutbucket” when they explain the sort of blues they play — meaning it’s down, and dirty, and there just ain’t nothing sweet about it. Bottles & Cans can lay truly claim to the adjective. Between vocalist Ray Lundy’s rattlesnake growl and Marty Ellis’ blues-harp moan, these guys bring it to the table and wash it down with whiskey and gravel. It’s the real deal: “I think over all these years we’ve only had three rehearsals,” Lundy says, “so everything is just on the spot — on the fly — at the shows.” At 6 p.m. Friday: The Magic Rocks At 9 p.m. Friday: Andrew Gill At 5 p.m. Saturday: The Accomplices A cool blend of bluegrass, country/rock and singer/songwriterly odes to the muse, this is one of Savannah’s most interesting bands — mostly because you never know what Matt, Zach, Colleen, Stan and Eric are going to pull out of their collective, dapper hat next. The band’s Canned Beans CD is worth checking out; word is, there’s a new one on the way. At 7 p.m. Saturday: Jon Lee’s Apparitions At 9 p.m. Saturday: Kota Mundi continues on p. 18

So you can just walk around and drink in Savannah? Crazy. Yes, to-go cups are one of the most enlightened and wonderful things about our fair city. Anyone over 21 can enjoy an alcoholic beverage in public areas throughout most of downtown. To-go cups must be paper, plastic or styrofoam, and 16 ounces or less. No other alcoholic containers are allowed. OK, what about this “Festival Area” I’ve heard about?

Yeah, funny thing. This Friday and Saturday — except during the actual parade Saturday from 10 a.m. to about 2 p.m. — the rules change. In order to use to-go cups between East Broad Street and MLK Boulevard, and north of Broughton Street west of Drayton Street and north of East Bay Lane east of Drayton Street (whew), you have to purchase a wristband for $5 per day. Yup, that’s right, Savannah changed the rules for this one weekend to increase regulation on to-go cups and make a bunch more money off of them. See the map this issue for the confusing boundaries of the Festival Area, and Jessica’s story. Does the inside of my car count as part of the Festival Area? No. Definitely not. Twitter? Connect Savannah’s handle is @connectsavannah, and the City of Savannah tweets breaking St. Patrick’s Day and public safety news from a new dedicated account, @savstpat Just scored a parking spot right on the parade route. I’ll just take this yellow bag thingie off the parking meter. That cool? Sure, if you want your car towed. Owners of towed cars must get a vehicle release form from SCMPD headquarters at Habersham and Oglethorpe Streets. My rescue pit bull with the green bandanna is gonna love the parade. Don’t worry, pit bulls are actually totally safe. Especially around very small children. That’s not actually a question. But sorry, doesn’t matter — dogs aren’t allowed anywhere in the official Festival Area. The only exceptions are service dogs and residents walking their dogs (you might be asked to show your drivers license to prove residence). How ’bout the six-foot python I carry around my neck whenever I party? Real conversation starter with the ladies, if you know what I mean. Actually the City prohibits reptiles from the Festival Area. So leave Lucifer at home. And no, it’s not a “seeing eye snake.” Oops! Lost my kid again. Now what? Lost or discarded children will be brought to Police HQ at Habersham and Oglethorpe Streets and sold to the highest bidder. Just kidding about that last part. Yeah, love me some St. Patty’s Day in Savannah, don’t you? Patty is really a girl’s name. We prefer St. Paddy’s Day if you must abbreviate. Cool story bro. Gotta pee. Any porta–potties in this town? Yes, hundreds. They are clustered along the parade route, either along the route itself or nearby the adjacent squares. River Street will have many as well. No worries, I’ll just whip it out right here. No! Please refrain from relieving yourself au naturel — public urination is one of the most “popular” reasons to get arrested on St. Patrick’s Day here. cs


So you’re thinking, wouldn’t it be awesome not to have to drive into downtown to see the parade? Yes. Yes it would be so awesome. That’s why Chatham Area Transit (CAT) will provide a $5 round–trip park ‘n’ ride St. Patrick’s Day shuttle March 16, 7 a.m.-noon from these locations: • Westside at the Westside Shopping Center on Hwy 80 in Garden City; • Eastside at the Island Towne Centre on Whitemarsh Island; • Southside at the Savannah Mall near Dillard’s. Shuttles begin return trips from the parade downtown from 11 a.m.–4 p.m. After 3 p.m., shuttle patrons can return to their cars via CAT fixed routes 3A and 3B, 10 East Savannah, and 114X Abercorn Express.

How ‘bout Hutchinson Island? Parking for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade will be available at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center on Hutchinson Island beginning at 6:30 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 16 for a fee of $10 per vehicle including a round trip on the water ferry for all vehicle passengers. The Savannah Belles Ferry will begin operating at 7 a.m. Saturday, traveling between City Hall Landing and the Trade Center Landing for faster service. After 6:30 p.m., normal scheduling will resume. Service will be available until midnight Saturday night.

Keepin’ it green. See what we did there? The City of Savannah has nearly doubled the number of recycling and littler containers in the Festival area, and have beefed up “litter control teams.” Look for the black carts with the yellow tops, which will be located along most corners of the parade route and in high-traffic squares. In them, throw: • Plastic beer cups • Bottles and cans • Paper and cardboard • Plastic plates and utensils Save all other trash for the garbage carts, which should be located nearby. This includes food, Styrofoam, and aluminum foil. Mixing trash in the recycling cart contaminates the whole load, forcing the City to landfill the contents. Don’t make them do that.

st. Patrick’s Day

How the Civil War shaped the Celtic community

It’s hard to visualize this during St. Patrick’s Day week in Savannah, but the Irish in America didn’t always have a strong sense of ethnic pride. “Irish identity in the U.S. really formed during the Civil War period,” says Bill Gillespie, Armstrong professor, retired Army colonel, and local Hibernian Society historian. “In Ireland itself there was no real sense of national identity at the time — just individual counties and provinces.” Gillespie details how the War Between The States forged modern Irish American sensibilities in his book The Irish in the American Civil War. “There was such dramatic loss of life. So many Irish immigrants were maimed and killed. At just two battles — Antietam and Fredericksburg — almost 100,000 Irish on both sides died,” Gillespie says. “But in the end the fighting proved almost ephemeral,” he says. “The infrastructure created by the Civil War really carved out a niche for Irish immigrants, who then became dominant in cities like Boston, New York, and Philadelphia.”

That strong neighborhood infrastructure was funded by “death gratuities,” monetary awards to families of slain soldiers. However grimly acquired, that seed money literally built the foundation of the concept of Irish identity in America. As Irish enclaves became wellestablished — and at last well-funded — Gillespie says Irish immigrants soon took over “urban labor organizations, Democratic Party politics, and city government. Furthermore, this organization allowed the Irish to dominate later immigrant groups.”  While Irish immigrants were often notoriously ambivalent about the Civil War’s causes — during the infamous 1863 draft riots in New York City, mobs of enraged Irish lynched African Americans and burned black orphanages — they fought with distinction on both sides. The experience between North and South, however, was quite different, Gillespie explains.

“The Irish were better assimilated in the South, mostly because their numbers were so small compared to the North,” he says. While there were notable Irish fighting units, such as the Louisiana Tigers and the “Fighting 10th,” in the South they tended to be modest in size. “The two Irish units from Savannah only amounted to about 80 and 110 men each,” says Gillespie. “So one was actually less than a company in size.” Northern Irish units were usually assembled by religion, neighborhood, and county origin, but in the South they tended to be grouped together strictly and only because they were Irish — “You’re all foreigners,” laughs

Gillespie. Consequently there was “much more diversity within Southern Irish units, many of which were actually led by Protestant officers,” Gillespie says. “In the South the Irish were really fighting to be American. In the North it was strictly about being Irish Catholic and an immigrant.” Schools and education seem to be the ties that bind successful immigrant groups, Gillespie concludes. “The entire process of Irish assimilation came to fruition by about 1930, when the typical Catholic in America was as educated as the typical WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestant). That was the real break point,” he says. “As I study this, I’m thinking this model really applies to the entire immigrant experience as a whole — you lend money, you start fraternal organizations, you build churches, you build real neighborhoods, you build schools. And then you get into politics.” cs The Irish in the American Civil War by Bill Gillespie is available at Saints and Shamrocks (309 Bull St.) and E. Shaver Bookseller (326 Bull St.)

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

Cop down: one crazy story A Savannah murder suspect and a Metro police officer he shot escaped serious injury after a pursuit of a stolen police car ended in a crash and shootout on I-16 last week.

Anthony B. Parrish Jr., 21, and Officer Rebecca Gregory were transported to Memorial University Medical Center. Both were treated for non-life threatening wounds and released. The officer’s cellphone deflected the bullet that struck her leg. The crash was preceded by a pursuit in which Parrish deliberately drove the stolen police car at an officer in an attempt to strike him, three times crossed a center line into oncoming traffic and finally crashed into the wood line of I-16 between the I-516 and Chatham Parkway exits.

There he opened fire on a pursuing police car before other officers fired back at him. Westbound lanes of the interstate were closed from 6:45 p.m. until 1:20 a.m. for the investigation. Parrish already was being sought by Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police who earlier in the day had charged him with the murder of Marray Martin, 20, at a party on Florida Avenue Feb. 24. In addition to the murder, Parrish has been charged with hijacking a motor vehicle, armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault, aggravated assault on a police officer, theft by taking, criminal attempt and criminal attempt at murder, possession of a firearm in committing a crime and fleeing to elude police officers. SCMPD Central Precinct Crime Suppression and TRAP Units already were scouring the Cuyler-Brownsville neighborhood for Parrish when he and another man stole a 2010 Chevrolet at gunpoint across town in the 800 block of West 33rd Street about 6:35 p.m. Police quickly located the stolen

car and followed it to West 40th Street and Burroughs where Parrish and his accomplice exited and ran in different directions. One officer left his patrol car to confront the other suspect as Parrish circled around a house and jumped into his police car and drove away. He drove the stolen car toward another officer who avoided injury by diving into his own patrol car. Police pursued the stolen police car east on 37th Street until Parrish turned into oncoming traffic, speeding west onto the I-16 connector and the interstate. There he again crossed the center line three times before crashing into the wood line to avoid tire spikes that police had placed across the highway. An extensive search for the other suspect was conducted in the area where the Chevrolet had been abandoned. Today, Metro patrol, Canine and TRAP officers along with U.S. Marshals from the Southeast Regional

Fugitive Task Force arrested Nathaniel Johnson. He has been charged with being party to the crime of murder, party to the crime of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a firearm in the commission of a crime. From Wednesday’s incident, he is charged with possession of a firearm in commission of a crime, armed robbery, aggravated assault and hijacking a motor vehicle.

The Sandusky horror is just the latest in a seemingly endless stream of pedophile scandals. Is there any reliable info on the incidence of these crimes? —Stan Kaplan Let’s start with the bright side: there’s no indication sex crimes involving children are more frequent than they used to be. What’s changed is we’re hearing more now about scandals that were previously hushed up. The grim fact remains that the situation was, and is, pretty bad. The Penn State child sex scandal got a lot of press, as did the revelation of serial child molesters in the Catholic church and the Boy Scouts. You get the impression pedophilia is spreading like wildfire. Is it? Moral panic aside, probably no. Pedophilia is defined as persistent sexual attraction to children where the perpetrator is at least age 16 and the victim is at least five years younger. As such, it’s a subset of child sex crimes in general, which also include acts between kids of similar age (I can remember an eighth-grade horror story or two) and opportunistic, one-time offenses. Such distinctions may be academic, or, as some critics have argued, irrelevant—it’s been estimated nearly nine in ten child molesters either meet the criteria for pedophilia at the time of the offense or eventually will. But let’s not sweat those details. In theory, there should be two ways to get a fix on pedophilia: count the molesters, or count the molestees. Unfortunately, collecting reliable numbers is tricky. Statistics on pedophiles are dubious for the obvious reason that cases typically come to light only as part of a criminal investigation or during psychological treatment. Studies of any type of sexual behavior based on self-report are notoriously unreliable, and surveys of pedophilic tendencies surely are doubly so—this doesn’t seem like the kind of thing most people would admit to, even anonymously. That caveat having been made, here’s a sampling of the research:

news & Opinion

• A 1989 study of 200 male college undergrads found 5 percent admitted to masturbating to pictures of children, and 7 percent said they’d have sex with a child if they could get away with it. • A 1991 study found 3 percent of some 600 college men reported having had a sexual experience with a child when they were 16 years or older. • Let you think this is strictly a male kink, a 1997 survey of more than 500 college women found 4 percent had sexual experiences with a child at least five years younger. They were on average only 12 at the time, meaning we’ve strayed from pedophilia as understood. We turn to the more important question: how many children do pedophiles victimize? The numbers reported in different studies simply don’t match up. For example, a 2007 report on pedophilia from the Mayo Clinic cites a survey of 1,500 Canadian young adults that found nearly a third of the women and a sixth of the men had experienced unwanted sexual contact before they were 17. Those are alarming numbers. But the report goes on to say, “Most of the one-time offenses reported by females were committed by another adolescent of similar age.” Is that bad? Absolutely it’s bad. But it’s not pedophilia. Likewise, a 2010 study says, “There have been marked declines in . . . childhood exposure to violence and abuse from the early 1990s to the recent past,” and as proof gives a long list of indicators, one of which is a 53 percent drop in proven sexual abuse cases. However, when you dig into the study you find two things. First, kids’ reports of sexual abuse by adults, as opposed to by other kids, have declined only modestly. Second and perhaps more significant, the incidence of such reports is small, around 0.3 percent. Reports of other types of abuse, such as flashing and statutory rape, are more common, in the 1 to 3 percent range; arguably some of this qualifies as pedophilia. One percent or even a third of one percent is a lot when spread across the whole population. But there’s little sign of a huge unrecognized problem. It seems reasonable to say pedophilia is one of those ineradicable but not especially common impulses that, unlike other forms of sexual and child abuse, has never been widely tolerated. Given greater awareness and more precautions, one may suppose it’ll happen less in the future. But notwithstanding news reports, there’s no sign it’s happening more. cs

news of the weird Doping on Ice Leaders of the ice-fishing community, aiming for official Olympics recognition as a sport, have begun the process by asking the World AntiDoping Agency to randomly test its “athletes” for performance-enhancing drugs, according to a February New York Times report. However, said the chairman of the U.S. Freshwater Fishing Association, “We do not test for beer,” because, he added, “Everyone would fail.” Ice-fishing is a lonely, frigid endeavor rarely employing strength but mostly requiring guile and strategy, as competitors who discover advantageous spots in the lake must surreptitiously upload the hauls lest competitors rush over to drill their own holes. Urine tests have also been run in recent years on competitors in darts, miniature golf, chess and tugof-war, and in 2011, one chess player, two minigolfers and one tugger tested positive.

Cultural Diversity • A frequent sight on Soweto, South Africa, streets recently is crowds of 12-to-15-year-old boys known as “izikhotane” (“boasters”) who hang out in their designer jeans, “shimmering silk shirts, bright pink and blue shoes, and white-straw, narrow-brimmed fedoras,” according to a February BBC News dispatch.

(The AP noted that Bishop Jackson had been the target of that’s-so-gay YouTube comments.) • Yet Another Fatwa: Saudi cleric Sheikh Abdullah Daoud, in an interview in February on al-Majd TV, decreed that female babies should wear full-face veils (burkas) to help shield them from sexual advances. (According to a former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, Saudi authorities have issued standards for fatwas, thus urging people to ignore “unregulated” ones such as Skeikh Daoud’s.) • In January, Lhokseumawe City, Indonesia, drafted new ordinances, including one that prohibits women from riding motorcycles with their legs straddling male drivers, since that would tend to “provoke” them. A proponent said the ban “honor(ed)” women “because they are delicate creatures.” Immediately, some authorities denounced the legislation, pointing out that riding “side saddle” is much more dangerous in cases of sudden swerves and collisions.

When Widespread Panic guitarist Michael Houser succumbed to cancer in 2002, he left behind a devastated wife and two small children, a band that loved him as a brother, and millions of worldwide fans. In the latter two groups was Sam Holt, who’d been the innovative musician’s guitar tech since the late 1990s. Holt, who visits Savannah March 15 for a gig at Satisfied, had been a longtime Panic fan who religiously taped their shows from the audience (like many jam bands, Panic approved the practice and always had a ropedoff area ready for “tapers”). A Tennessee native, Holt was in college, studying to be an audio engineer. He was also a guitar player, and when he was offered — through a friend of a friend — the job as Houser’s on-tour technical guy, he jumped at the chance. Not that he knew what he was doing at first. In fact, he joined Panic on the road three days after getting the offer. “It was trial by fire,” Holt says. “I had to figure it out for myself. It was definitely shaky at the beginning, but it worked out.” The guitar tech’s job is to keep the musician’s instruments and equipment in top shape, and ready to go before the performance. Houser was one-of-a-kind. “He had a pretty straightforward rig,” Holt explains. “His main effect was the volume pedal that went into the effects loop. He worked that thing like nobody, really. It was so

trippy-sounding. And he was always moving it; it never really stayed in one place. “Most people just plug their guitar into the volume pedal, and plug the pedal into the front of the amp. There was a delay pedal after the effects loop, so the more he pushed it down, the more delay he would get. He didn’t have a big rack of effects — he did a lot of it with the volume pedal and his fingers. That was where his tone came from.” He clicked with the guys in the band — particularly with Houser — and before long was part of the family. “It was pretty rewarding,” he says. “I remember, at the end of that tour, he said to me ‘Man, my rig hasn’t sounded that good in a long time.’ And that made feel so good. Because, you know, I put a lot of work into it. A lot of time and attention to detail.” Widespread Panic regrouped after Houser’s death, and over time Holt began to get invited onstage. In 2006, he played lead for most of the band’s summer tour, before Jimmy Herring — who was finishing other commitments — could come aboard as the new lead player. Holt had his own band by then, Outformation, with an album produced by Panic keyboardist JoJo

Hermann. The Sam Holt Band formed after its namesake moved to Boulder, Colo. in 2010. “I just wanted to keep playing and doing what I do,” says Holt, “so the Sam Holt Band is totally different from Outformation. That band was more collaborative; this is more … I’m not saying I call every shot, but I write most of the songs, and sing most of the songs. Everybody definitely has input — it’s not ‘my way or the highway’ or anything. “These guys are so good, man, I’m just lucky to have ‘em around.” Not surprisingly, the new group has been embraced by Widespread Panic’s legions of fans. Holt is quick to point out, however, that it’s a different animal. “I think it has more of a country feel, country rock,” he says. “We have a pedal steel guitar player in the band, and he plays steel probably 60 or 70 percent of the time, and then he plays electric guitar the other amount. “I think maybe some of the jamming, some of the way I play, can be reminiscent of Mike Houser. It just sort of oozed into me through osmosis, I suppose. And every now and then we’ll play one of Mike’s tunes that Panic doesn’t play any more.” CS

The

three Irish tenors It wouldn’t be St. Paddy’s without musical magic at Kevin Barry’s by Bill DeYoung | bill@connectsavannah.com

Carroll Brown

Since 1980, Ground Zero for Irish music in Savannah has been Kevin Barry’s on River Street. New Yorker Vic Power opened the public house, with its multiple stages and Gaelic theme rooms, as an emulation of the favored hangouts of his youth.


threesome to maintain a residence in Savannah (Brown’s from Charleston, while Emerson makes his home in Virginia). He came to the United States in 1987. “I made my living for years working the Irish pubs around the country, from Houston to New Orleans to Los Angeles,“ O’Donoghue says. “And they’re just not there any more. People don’t want to pay the money and expenses to get people like me. And back then, there were a lot more people like me, it seemed.” Emerson, who’s been appearing periodically at Barry’s since just after its debut, agrees that things have, indeed, changed. “I think people’s politeness and courtesy has gone down with the advent of cell phones,” he says. “I’ve had people sitting in the audience, and I see the lights of the cell phones — people are texting and talking all the time when I’m playing. And it’s enough to drive you a little bit nuts.” Emerson, Brown and O’Donoghue are longtime pals and boyos. They made a collaborative

CD 13 years ago, A Christmas Postcard. In 2007, Emerson and O’Donoghue were among the pubmusic collaborators on a book called Clean Cabbage in the Bucket and other Tales From the Irish Music Trenches, a collaborative anthology of reminiscences and stories. On Saturday and Sunday, the three will perform before, after and along with the Savannah-based Irish music group Seldom Sober. Expect a lot of good humor — sometimes, but not nearly always, on the bawdy side — and fine musicianship on story-songs, love songs, singalongs and paeans to the Great Shamrock Isles. Hoist yer glass; tt’s the American version of St. Patrick’s Day. And these are three guys who know what they’re doing. “There are people who come here to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but geographically they couldn’t find the island with a map,” laughs O’Donoghue. “But hey, at least they’re embracing it — it’s a party. Let’s rock on.” CS

In an Irish pub, the musicians aren’t background sound; they put on a show. And when they’re good — which they always are at Kevin Barry’s — they draw the audience in. Never a dull moment, as me sainted grandmother used to say. “It’s Vic’s theory that if live entertainment and good conversation, and a good choice of adult beverages is not enough for you, then you can go somewhere else,” says Carroll Brown, who’s been doin’ the entertainin’ there since 1994. St. Patrick’s Day, as you might expect, is a big deal at the Pub. This year, it’s a triple pookah-whammy, with Brown and two of his fellow River Street regulars, Harry O’Donoghue and Frank Emerson, performing together Friday night, and all afternoon and evening Saturday and Sunday. “With three voices, we can really get a lot of power behind a song,” O’Donoghue says. “That’s one of the things I look forward to the most.” A native of Ireland, O’Donoghue is the only member of the green

It was one to remember, as the event continues to grow and evolve into one of the South’s most fun (and somewhat suitably quirky) such festivals. What was your favorite show? Was it the big free Forsyth show by Of Montreal? The trippy-hippie-disco-soul of Dent May at Hang Fire?

The driving, distinctive sounds of Thurston Moore and his new band Chelsea Light Moving, at the Knights of Columbus Hall? The impossibly cute pop-rock stylings of Japan’s The Suzan, performing at Club One? We don’t even know ourselves.

They’ve been all the rage in Paris for a couple of centuries, but America is just catching on to the magic of the macaron. The meringue-based sandwich cookies have been popping up on food blogs and highbrow events as of late, and with the 2011 opening of famed Parisian patisserie Ladurée in Manhattan, it appears that macarons may be readying to topple cupcakes as the confection of the moment. Fortunately for Savannah, Laura Hale and Amy Shippy are out in front of the trend. The best friends founded Maison de Macarons barely a year ago and found an instantaneous and everincreasing demand for their multicolored goodies. Not to be confused with the coconut-based macaroons found in many American bakeries and ubiquitous this time of year during Passover, macarons are made from almond flour and are definitively French. The two share a common ancestor in the Italian “maccarone,” a term for most anything made from egg whites and nuts. With an endless repertoire of flavors that include chocolate, raspberry and salted caramel, the

French version has found enthusiastic acceptance with the American palate. Though some, especially Southerners, still trip up on the pronunciation. “Try it like ‘macaroni’ without the ‘i’,” suggests Shippy. Made of almond flour, sugar and egg whites and filled with buttercream, macarons may appear simple but require high maintenance: It takes an intimate relationship with each oven’s idiosyncrasies to perfect the distinctive ruffled “feet” on the bottoms. The cookies have the persnickety tendency to crack when baked even a few second too long or squish up if not settled properly. Even how many times the batter is stirred can upset the delicate marriage of crunch and chewiness. Measurements must be exact. “It’s deceptive because there are just a few ingredients. But any time you’re dealing with meringue, it gets complicated,” sighs Hale, who adds that every time the weather changes, they have to adjust their recipes. “We have been humbled by the

gods of macarons,” laughs Shippy. The two avowed soccer moms weren’t planning to open a business, let alone forge a new food fad. But after their contributions to a neighborhood Christmas cookie swap were a runaway hit, they began filling orders out of Hale’s kitchen. They quickly had to move to a commercial space off Skidaway to keep up and relocated eight months later to a storefront next to the movie theater at Waters and Eisenhower. “We needed a little more showroom and a lot more kitchen,” says Hale. Charmingly decorated with Parisian flourishes and a mural of the Champs-Elysees painted by Shippy’s mother-in-law, Maison de Macarons is large enough to accommodate the 800 cookies a day coming through and cozy enough to stay for a cup of tea. A Dylan Wilson photograph of the Bird Girl brandishing trays of its wares overlooks a large glass case. Inside, a kaleidoscope of rounds are arranged as carefully as a precious jewels, dusky pinks nestled next to robin’s egg blues and pistachio greens. “The aesthetics are important. As much as taste matters, it’s also eye continues on p. 40

Savannah foodie

An Gorta Mór, “the great hunger,” ravaged Ireland of her people, laid a foundation for her modern politics and provided the catalyst for the mass emigration of her people. In that seven year struggle (18451852), more than a million Irish died, food production plummeted and politicians struggled for solutions. It was a watershed event that fills volumes of history. Today, 170 years in the future, I’m happy to report there is no shortage of Irish staples and Guinness runs like water from America’s beer taps. If it’s Irish food you’re after, then have a pint pulled and grab a seat at Kevin Barry’s Irish Pub, arguably Savannah’s most authentic Irish watering hole. It’s as rough around the edges as any centuries-old Irish counterpart but that’s part of the charm. The bar is dark, cool and inviting. The Irish music, whether digital or live, sets a rhythmic pace with thumping bodhrán and toe-tapping fiddle. I slipped in for lunch a week before Kevin Barry’s expects to be wall-towall with St. Pat’s revelers. Settling in with a pint of Guinness to review the menu, I was confronted with plenty of commonplace “musts” for any bar — the jalapeño poppers, sandwiches and dishes that less adventurous diners consider required fare. But I found my Irish culinary Neamh (Heaven) in a little portion of the menu dubbed “traditional favorites.” I couldn’t decide between ribsticking Shepherd’s Pie or comforting

Kevin Barry’s Irish Sampler presents a huge portion of classic favorites.

Beef Stew. Of course, corned beef and cabbage…wait! The Irish sampler — a bit of all three! The steaming hot platter would have fed a famine-era family of six for a week. It’s a real bargain at $17.95 but plan on sharing this one, or at least taking the steps back to Bay Street a whole lot slower. The Beef Stew had veggies cut into nice, large, rustic chunks and the beef was tender and well-braised. The fork-tender corned beef insulated a hot layer of slow-cooked cabbage. The mound of mashed potatoes atop the Shepherd’s Pie gave way to a rich brown sauce filled with well-seasoned

ground beef. A couple of slices of dense brown bread with butter rounded out this feast. The pub takes some heat for slow service. I can understand this, especially when the place is packed. It’s a small kitchen. But know that Kevin Barry’s is first and foremost an authentic Irish pub, meaning that it’s a place to relax, to regale companions and strangers with exotic tales and to quaff your favorite ale. Go prepared to relax, to take your time and to savor. 117 W. River St., (912) 233-9626, kevinbarrys.com.

There’s been a mad rush on to get some new projects open for St. Patrick’s Day weekend guests. These places all made it under the wire: Wet Willie’s opened its third Chatham County location. The new spot at the corner of West St. Julian and Jefferson streets in City Market features two levels of dining, indoor and outdoor seating, hand-painted murals by Bill Wrigley and restored original interior décor including period stained glass windows and doors. The restaurant and bar will serve lunch and dinner daily. Rose Public House, most recently the location of Lime Grill, did a very nice makeover of this tired space and is open with an American-themed gastropub menu. The new owners are experienced restaurant operators who have assembled an enthusiastic staff. 125 E. Broughton St. Brick House began its full menu of burgers, BBQ and beer earlier this week at both lunch and dinner. Live music is under the large tent on weekends. This place got a complete makeover after longtime tenant Blowin’ Smoke vacated for a new spot on Habersham Street (not yet open). 514 MLK Jr. Blvd. Moon River Brewing kicked open the gates to its stunning new beer garden on March 8. This dramatic change to the corner of Bay and Whitaker streets offers outdoor dining and a perfect perch to people watch. Sip a Slo-vannah ale and watch the world go by. cs

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL OP

In the immortal 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz, the Scarecrow sings “If I Only Had a Brain” (“My head I’d be scratching, While my thoughts were busy hatching”), the Tin Man croons “If I Only Had a Heart” (“I’d be tender, I’d be gentle, And awful sentimental”) and the Cowardly Lion belts out “If I Only Had the Nerve” (“Yeah, it’s sad, believe me, missy, When you’re born to be a sissy”). Those three interlocking tunes might have easily served as the theme song to Oz the Great and Powerful, a portrait of plasticity that could have benefited from more intelligence in its narrative structure, more feeling in its characterizations and more courage to break away from the generic, one-size-fits-all strain of blockbuster that’s been draining studio coffers as of late. Unlike such financial bombs as John Carter, Battleship and the recent Jack the Giant Slayer, this Oz prequel will likely be a box office champion - parent company Disney is obviously hoping for grosses to match those of its 2010 offering Alice in Wonderland, Tim Burton’s occasionally magical but more often misguided reworking of a beloved fantasy franchise. The 3-D effects in Oz easily trump those in Alice (remember, that film was shot in 2-D and then

converted once the 3-D craze took hold), but in most other regards, this new picture can’t even match the modest triumphs of that overstuffed soufflé. In a nice nod to the 1939 original, this Oz opens in black-and-white, with a boxy 1.37:1 image (what was used before the widescreen era began in 1953). The setting is Kansas, and the traveling magician Oscar (James Franco), known as Oz to his friends, is busy wowing the locals with his sleight-of-hand show and


who played the Wizard in 1939, in his performance. When Ewan McGregor portrayed Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels, he took care to adopt Alec Guinness’ careful enunciation and floating cadences to provide viewers with a recognizable throughline so they could link the two characterizations; it’s a disengaged performance that’s only slightly more grounded than his hosting stint on the Oscars. As the three witches, only Kunis is given a character that has any sort of arc, even if it isn’t a very believable one. Weisz provides some zest to a cardboard role, while Williams can’t be anything but dull in her drowsy part. As the chattering monkey Finley, Braff is made to sound more like a character from a Shrek movie, given the contemporary edge afforded his character’s dialogue. The same degree of modernity can be found in Tony Cox as the dour Munchkin, Knuck. Cox, hilarious as Billy Bob Thornton’s profane partner in Bad Santa, perpetually seems on the verge of slipping back into that movie’s character, and I half-expected to hear Muck bellow, “Oz, you stupid motherf***er!” Such an outburst wouldn’t have provided the movie with any more of a brain or a heart, but at least it would have shown some measure of nerve in a production that’s about as challenging as skipping down a brick road.

JACK THE GIANT SLAYER

OOP

On the surface, Jack the Giant Slayer would appear to be made from the same cloth as Oz the Great and Powerful - that is to say, it’s an expensive CGI spectacle directed by a highly regarded helmer of superhero flicks (in this case, X-Men’s Bryan Singer). It’s based, of course, on the classic fairy tale in which a peasant boy gets hold of some magic beans that eventually bear an enormous beanstalk that travels upward into the clouds; after climbing to the top, he encounters a fearsome giant and must use his wits to survive. Jack the Giant Slayer takes that template and expands on it in a way that works. This isn’t a disastrous rewriting (like Mirror Mirror) but rather an interpretation that strives to always remain consistent. Its central role still belongs to young Jack (Nicholas continues on p. 46

wooing the ladies who catch his eye. When a circus strongman reacts with rage in the aftermath of one of his conquests, Oz elects to hightail it off the ground in his trusty air balloon, leaving behind his put-upon assistant Frank (Zach Braff). The magician gets caught in the middle of a fearsome tornado and ends up in the color-saturated, widescreen world of Oz; there, he meets a kindly witch (Mila Kunis) who’s convinced that he’s the great wizard who’s come to save the land from the machinations of a wicked witch. Aware of his own limitations but also learning about the kingdom’s vast treasures, he pretends to be a real wizard, a claim met with suspicion from the sorceress’ equally powerful sister (Rachel Weisz). Oz sets off to kill the wicked witch, and his adventures place him in contact with a flying monkey named Finley (voiced by Braff), an animated porcelain doll called China Girl (voiced by Joey King) and yet another witch (Michelle Williams). From the 1939 chestnut to the modern stage smash Wicked, works based on the properties of author L. Frank Baum have tended to present their female characters as smart, headstrong women ultimately responsible for their own fates. Therefore, it’s a bit disconcerting to see how in this film, they’re all small moons orbiting around Franco’s Oz - in fact, the lothario’s base treatment of one of the witches is what fuels not only the majority of this movie but also Dorothy’s subsequent saga as well. Scripters Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire do add some clever shout-outs to the original film, but they’re all inconsequential and can’t overcome the banality of the central thrust, which involves usual tropes like mistaken identities and the need for a nuclear family. I’ve been a Sam Raimi fan ever since The Evil Dead back in the mid1980s, and he’s made me proud with such triumphs as the acclaimed thriller A Simple Plan (a movie in dire need of discovery) and the crackerjack Spider-Man trilogy. So it’s crushing to see how much the director has sold out here. Franco is not terrible in the part, but he’s not exactly inspired, either. His Oz is more off-putting than should be the case - he’s so lecherous, I expected him to start hitting on the childlike China Girl at any moment and there’s no hint of Frank Morgan,

Hoult, also starring in Warm Bodies), but he’s surrounded by various characters brought to life by fine actors: Ewan McGregor as the brave soldier Elmont, Stanley Tucci as the duplicitous Roderick, Ian McShane as the noble king, and more. The 3-D is excellent although not essential, and while much of the CGI looks like the same-old same-old (especially the large-scale battle sequences), the giants are an imaginatively designed bunch and the beanstalk itself is a monumental marvel. Jack the Giant Slayer isn’t close to being among the elite films in theaters now, but if your significant other or your friends narrow down the viewing options to this or Oz the Great and Powerful, best to gently push them in this direction. Dwayne Johnson stars in Snitch

earned a respectable $40 million to date is because it’s a franchise sequel; without John McClane as the hero, I expect it would have fared much worse.)

Now Dwayne Johnson enters the fray with Snitch, and what’s interesting to note is that, while his fellow macho men are content to coast, the artist formerly known as The Rock actually attempts to do something different, appearing in a movie that, contrary to both expectations and popular belief, isn’t an action flick as much as a thoughtful drama peppered with a couple of requisite car chases and shootouts. Snitch is one of those movies that opens with a statement declaring it’s based on a true story – given the increased frequency of this claim combined with the laxity with which it’s now employed, I expect to see such a header at the start of Jack the Giant Slayer and Iron Man 3, among other upcoming titles. At any rate, it’s the closing comment that resonates more deeply, the widely acknowledged one that nonviolent, first–time drug offenders generally face more prison time than murderers and rapists. Snitch analyzes that dire problem in the context of a drama about a father who makes Herculean sacrifices for the sake of his son.

as a presidential candidate in debate mode. The movie poster might as well read, “John McClane IS John McCain,” given that this dud isn’t likely to raise anyone’s pulse. The first Die Hard entry set outside the U.S., this finds McClane heading to Russia to check on his estranged son Jack (Jai Courtney), who isn’t the druggie burnout he expected but rather a covert agent for the CIA. Jack’s mission is to extract a political prisoner (the fine German actor Sebastian Koch, almost unrecognizable under a scruffy beard), which becomes a mission impossible once Pappy McClane arrives on the scene and screws everything up. But no worries: Big Daddy has plenty of time to make amends, as he proceeds to blow away Russkies, save his son’s skin and rack up an obscene amount of collateral damage. They bump into scores of villains, one of whom suffers (spoiler, but who cares?) death–by–whirling–helicopter–blade. Unique cinematic demise? Not really: A character suffered the exact same fate in 1991’s execrable The Last Boy Scout, a film which — oh, yeah — also starred Bruce Willis. John McClane’s signature catchphrase “Yippee ki–yay” is uttered, though he’s more prone this time around to channeling City Slickers’ Billy Crystal by shouting, “I’m on vacation!” — a line that isn’t especially witty (or accurate) the first time he says it and certainly has worn out its welcome by the time he amends it to “I’m on fucking vacation!” Unbelievably, this great character has made a complete transformation from a likable, sympathetic Everyman in 1988 to an arrogant, insufferable jerk in 2013. continues on p. 48

It’s been exactly a quarter–century since Bruce Willis became a movie star with the action classic Die Hard, but while 2013 finds the actor headlining the fifth film in the never–say– die series, it’s clear that A Good Day to Die Hard does his image — and his iconic character — no favors. John McClane, once an exciting screen presence, is now simply an old grouch who’s as dull and predictable

A Good Day to Die Hard

O

47 MAR 13-19, 2013 | WWW.CONNECTSAVANNAH.COM

Jason (Rafi Gavron) is a college– bound kid who initially refuses but then reluctantly agrees to hold a shipment of ecstasy for his drug–dealing friend. But when the shipment arrives at his door, the Feds swoop in and arrest him; matters become even worse when, for the sake of a reduced sentence, his pal fingers him as the real drug dealer, a lie that leads to a mandatory 10–year sentence alongside hardened criminals. His dad John (Johnson), a respected business owner, finds that the prosecuting attorney (Susan Sarandon) won’t budge in the matter, so he offers her a deal: In exchange for reducing Jason’s sentence, John will go undercover and nab a real drug lord or two. Johnson isn’t exactly our most versatile movie star (although he was awfully funny in the otherwise dismal Get Shorty sequel, Be Cool), but he does possess charisma to burn, and it’s this natural screen presence that allows us to accept him in this role. His character’s sense of frustration and outrage over what’s happening to his son is palpable, and this sets up some interesting encounters opposite the ambitious d.a., a conscientious field agent (Barry Pepper, hiding underneath a biker–ready beard) and an ex–con (Jon Bernthal) who tries to help John while keeping his own record clean. I certainly don’t want to oversell the film: The direction by Ric Roman Waugh is more workmanlike than inspired, and the third act promises more thrills than it actually delivers (John states that he has this great plan to make everything right, but it proves to be about as complex as boiling water). Still, moviegoers finding themselves between The Rock and a bad choice – say, the aforementioned Die Hard debacle – might agree that the auditorium showing Snitch isn’t a hard place to be.

21 AND OVER

OO

It’s hard to imagine anybody who’s 21 and over truly getting much out of 21 and Over, but as far as these sorts of films go, this one isn’t as aggressively stupid as some. It’s written and directed by the same guys who penned The Hangover (Jon Lucas and Scott Moore), and I actually prefer it to that often insufferable comedy. Of course, Lucas and Moore don’t stray too far from their cinematic bread ‘n’ butter. As in The Hangover, the movie opens with a story–already–in–progress scene that quickly jumps to flashback mode to show how the current mess ensnaring the protagonists initially evolved. The plot also involves copious amounts of drinking, resultant blackouts, characters in extremely compromising positions, an important engagement that might get missed and, the biggest telltale of all, a naked Asian man who’s as uninhibited as Ron Jeremy when it comes to jiggling his buttocks and wiggling his willy. There’s no Mike Tyson on hand, though, so at least the film has that going for it. Miles Teller, whose subtle and sensitive emoting opposite Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole is not at all required here, and Skylar Astin, Anna Kendrick’s romantic interest in last fall’s Pitch Perfect, respectively play the immature Miller and the responsible Casey, two college kids who spring a surprise visit on their friend Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) on the day of his 21st birthday. Their intent is to take him out for a night of boozing and carousing, a bad idea considering he has an important job interview at 8 the following morning. Nevertheless, Jeff Chang (his friends never call him by just his first name) finally agrees, and it’s amusing to watch as he flashes his I.D. to bouncers who, as noted, previously always mistook him for an underage Asian girl. It’s no surprise that the bombed Jeff Chang eventually passes out, but his two buddies have no idea where he lives. His address becomes a Holy Grail of higher education, with the guys engaging in a series of campus adventures as they try to get him home before his intimidating dad (Francois Chau) arrives to take him to his interview.

Despite the similarities to The Hangover, 21 and Over actually jostles even more in the direction of the sturdy Harold & Kumar franchise, a comparison that’s more pronounced given the comparable ages of the characters. Yet where the writers of the H&K films managed to employ ethnic stereotypes to puncture hypocrisy and prejudice, Lucas and Moore aren’t nearly as sharp when attempting to do likewise: The gags involving Jeff Chang aren’t particularly funny or challenging, the inclusion of a sorority full of angry Latinas is a major miscalculation, and the writers don’t even attempt to address African–Americans (not only are there no significant or supporting black characters, I’d be hard–pressed to recall if any black actors were even employed as background extras for any scenes). Yet the movie does get some things right. The casting of Teller and Astin, both appealing performers, is crucial. Their ability to carve out specific characters ultimately provides some resonance to the more sentimental and introspective moments that appear toward the end; this in turn prevents the picture from exploding like a grenade in its own face (as often happens when this type of film develops an insincere conscience right before the fadeout). The budding romance between Casey and a sorority girl named Nicole (Sarah Wright) is unexpectedly sweet, and the thorny relationship between Jeff Chang and his father is ably handled. As for the scene involving some serious smooching between two of the male characters, while some might see it as an extension of this genre’s penchant for “gay panic” humor, I’m willing to give the filmmakers the benefit of the doubt and view it as an affront to homophobic louts who hypocritically see nothing wrong with lesbianism but want to smash skulls when the mere suggestion of even the most innocent guy– on–guy action is brought up. Knowing that this scene will upset frat boys is enough to justify its existence, if you ask me. cs

ARIES

(March 21-April 19) “If it’s stupid and it works, it’s not stupid.” That could turn out to be a useful mantra for you in the coming week. Being pragmatic should be near the top of your priority list, whereas being judgmental should be at the bottom. Here’s another mantra that may serve you well: “Those who take history personally are condemned to repeat it.” I hope you invoke that wisdom to help you escape an oppressive part of your past. Do you have room for one more inspirational motto, Aries? Here it is: “I am only as strong as my weakest delusion.”

TAURUS

(April 20-May 20) Don’t you just love to watch the spinning of those wheels within wheels within wheels? Aren’t you grateful for the way the everchurning plot twists keep you alert and ready to shift your attitude at a moment’s notice? And aren’t you thrilled by those moments when fate reveals that its power is not absolute -- that your intelligence and willpower can in fact override the seemingly inexorable imperatives of karma? If you are unfamiliar with the pleasures I’ve just described, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to get deeply acquainted.

GEMINI

(May 21-June 20) It won’t be a good week to issue unreasonable, illogical, and selfcentered demands. And please don’t make peanut butter and jelly a part of your sex life, take a vacation in Siberia, or photocopy your butt and deliver it anonymously to your boss. On the other hand, it will be an excellent time to scrawl motivational poetry on your bedroom wall, stage a slowmotion pillow fight, and cultivate your ability to be a deep-feeling free-thinker. Other recommended actions: Give yourself a new nickname like Highball or Root Doctor or Climax Master; write an essay on “The Five Things That the Pursuit of Pleasure Has Taught Me;” and laugh uproariously as you completely bypass the void of sadness and the abyss of fear.

CANCER

(June 21-July 22) In the mid-19th century, prospectors mined for gold in the mountains of western Nevada.

The veins weren’t as rich as those in California, but some men were able to earn a modest living. Their work to extract gold from the terrain was hampered by a gluey blue mud that gummed up their machinery. It was regarded as a major nuisance. But on a hunch, one miner took a load of the blue gunk to be analyzed by an expert. He discovered that it contained rich deposits of silver. So began an explosion of silver mining that made many prospectors very wealthy. I suggest you be on the alert for a metaphorical version of blue mud in your sphere, Cancerian: an “inconvenience” that seems to interfere with the treasure you seek, but that is actually quite valuable.

LEO

(July 23-Aug. 22) When pioneer filmmaker Hal Roach worked on scripts with his team of writers, he sometimes employed an unusual strategy to overcome writer’s block. He’d bring in a “Wildie” to join them at the conference table. A Wildie was either a random drunk they found wandering around the streets or a person who lived in an insane asylum. They’d engage him in conversation about the story they were working on, and he would provide unexpected ideas that opened their minds to new possibilities. I don’t necessarily recommend that you seek the help of a Wildie, Leo, but I hope you will come up with other ways to spur fresh perspectives. Solicit creative disruptions!

VIRGO

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Is the term “unconscious mind” a good name for the foundation of the human psyche? Should we really be implying that the vast, oceanic source of everything we think and feel is merely the opposite of the conscious mind? Dreamworker Jeremy Taylor doesn’t think so. He proposes an alternate phrase to replace “unconscious”: “not-yet-speech-ripe.” It captures the sense of all the raw material burbling and churning in our deep awareness that is not graspable through language. I bring this up, Virgo, because you’re entering a phase when a lot of not-yetspeech-ripe stuff will become speech-ripe. Be alert for it!

LIBRA

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In 1928, biologist Alexander Fleming launched a medical revolution. He developed the world’s first antibiotic, penicillin, making it possible to cure a host of maladies caused by hostile bacteria. His discovery was a lucky fluke that happened only because he left his laboratory a mess when he went on vacation. While he was gone, a bacteria culture he’d been working with got contaminated by a mold that turned out to be penicillin. I’m thinking that you could achieve a more modest but quite happy accident sometime soon, Libra. It may depend on you allowing things to be more untidy than usual, though. Are you game?

SCORPIO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) “I am iron resisting the most enormous Magnet there is,” wrote the Sufi mystic poet Rumi. He was wistfully bemoaning his own stubborn ignorance, which tricked him into refusing a more intimate companionship with the Blessed Source of all life. I think there’s something similar going on in most of us, even atheists. We feel the tremendous pull of our destiny -- the glorious, daunting destination that would take all our strength to achieve and fulfill our deepest longings -- and yet we are also terrified to surrender to it. What’s your current relationship to your Magnet, Scorpio? I say it’s time you allowed it to pull you closer.

SAGITTARIUS

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21) NASA used whale oil to lubricate the Hubble Space Telescope and Voyager spacecrafts. There was a good reason: Whale oil doesn’t freeze at the low temperatures found in outer space. While I certainly don’t approve of killing whales to obtain their oil, I want to use this story to make a point. It’s an excellent time for you, too, to use old-school approaches for solving ultra-new-school problems. Sometimes a triedand-true method works better, or is cheaper, simpler, or more aesthetically pleasing.

CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The theory of the “butterfly effect” proposes that a butterfly flapping its wings in China may ultimately impact the weather in New York. Here’s how the writer Richard Bernstein explains it: “Very slight,

nearly infinitesimal variations and the enormous multiplicity of interacting variables produce big differences in the end.” That’s why, he says, “the world is just too complicated to be predictable.” I find this a tremendously liberating idea. It suggests that every little thing you do sends out ripples of influence that help shape the kind of world you live in. The coming week will be an excellent time to experiment with how this works in your daily life. Put loving care and intelligent attention into every little thing.

AQUARIUS

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Former football quarterback Joe Ayoob holds the world’s record for throwing a paper airplane the longest distance. After it left his hand, the delicate craft traveled over 226 feet. I propose we make Ayoob your patron saint and role model for the coming week. From what I can tell, you will have a similar challenge, at least metaphorically: blending power and strength with precision and finesse and control. It’s time to move a fragile thing or process as far as possible.

PISCES

(Feb. 19-March 20) A source of fulfillment you will enjoy in the future may seem almost painful when it initially announces its presence. In other words, your next mission may first appear to you as a problem. Your situation has a certain resemblance to that of prolific Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky, who produced a wide variety of enduring works, including symphonies, ballets, operas, and concertos. When he was a precocious child, he was assailed by the melodies and rhythms that frequently surged through his mind. “This music! This music!” he complained to his mother. “Take it away! It’s here in my head and won’t let me sleep!”
