Go ask Alice Diana Scarwid and Rene Rossett co-direct ambitious Tybee production of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland ACADEMY A W A R D - N O M I N A T E D actress Diana Scarwid and all-around local theatre talent Rene Rossett have teamed up to bring Tybee Island what is likely to be one of the most original and ambitious community productions seen in the area for years. Using their own adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s immortal Alice in Wonderland, Rossett and Scarwid will stage the classic in the round -- more or less -- on center court of the brand-new Tybee Gymnasium this weekend and the following. With a cast of 47 actors, a host of fanciful costumes and special effects galore, this Alice would be difficult for even a professional company to stage. But consider that this is community theatre -- an entity that, like another famous young girl from literature, is dependent on the kindness of strangers -- and the thing is even more daunting. Connect caught up with co-directors Rossett and Scarwid the week before opening, and all seemed -- remarkably -to be going according to plan. Rossett multitasks with aplomb, answering interview questions, subbing for absent actors, prompting actors on forgotten lines and yelling out blocking direction -- all virtually simultaneously, and all with a smile. Scarwid -- a Savannah native nominated for an Oscar for her work in Inside Moves and an Emmy for her portrayal of the president’s wife in HBO’s Truman -is the Jedi Knight of the pair. Choosing her words and actions carefully, Scarwid focuses on craft and deals with the cast primarily as individuals. “Go home and work on your vowels,” she coaches the actors as rehearsal wraps up. “The vowels are what carry out into the audience. We don’t want the audience to have to work to hear you. We do all the work for them -- that’s our gift to the audience.” It’s not exactly a good-cop/ bad-cop routine, but the subtle contrast in styles enables Rossett and Scarwid to coax an amount of cohesion out of the cast and crew that belies the production’s amateur nature.

Richard Adams: For community theatre this is a huge, huge undertaking. It simply would not have been possible if not for the community support we’ve gotten. A lot, Connect Savannah: Why Alice?

Following is our interview with Rossett, Scarwid, set designer extraordinaire Richard Adams and the actress portraying Alice herself, twelve-year-old Glory Padgett.

7 It was horrible. She must have run off 18 boom operators who just couldn’t take it anymore and walked off the show. Rene Rossett: She made me turn it off. Diana Scarwid: Anytime you take something from a book you have to do something to make it visual. The audience has to extrapolate. They have to use -- what do they call that -- the suspension of disbelief.

Connect Savannah: The willing suspension of disbelief.

Diana Scarwid: We pretty much figured that whoever showed up on a night like that would end up being our core. And they are. Rene Rossett: We had them take the monologues home and gave them time to look them over. We preferred to call it an “audition process.” Diana Scarwid: I’ve been on thousands of job interviews, and cold readings are always really challenging for any actor. You don’t get a feel for how a person will really be in a role from something like that.

Connect Savannah: Glory, how have you prepared for the role of Alice? Glory Padgett: I’m very much playing her like a girl that most of the adults around her look down on. Now that she’s come into this other world, she doesn’t have to be looked down on anymore. Now she’s in her own little world where she can be who she wants to be.

Connect Savannah: Would you have been happy with any role or was your heart set on playing Alice?

Diana Scarwid: From so many years of doing movie work I started to feel this disconnect. In the movies you sit in your trailer, go to make-up, then go to the set and the director’s got the camera all set up. And you’re like, oh, so this is the kitchen I’ll be in today. I’ve been missing being with other human beings. I really appreciate that tangibility. People are so used to thinking that art is just something you see on a screen, but it’s in ourselves. It can be in a book or in a simple act of kindness. I like to just drive down the street and wave consciously to other people. And they always wave back. They want to initiate it but they just can’t. That kind of thing does have power and it does go out in the universe. The power of one really is incredible. Do I need a stage or an audience to make that connection? Gandhi said it best himself: You must be the change you want to see in the world. ◗

The Tybee Arts Association and the City of Tybee Island present Alice in Wonderland at 8 p.m. July 8-10 and July 15-17, with 3 p.m. matinees on July 11 and 18. Tickets are $18 adults and $12 for children under 18. Advance tickets are available at your local YMCA or online at Other cast members include Kelsey Chandler as Emily, Alison Greer as the Cheshire Cat, “Capt.” Bob Eccles as the Dormouse, Rod McAdams as the Mad Hatter, Mickey Dodge and Grace DiazTootle as the Duchess, Johnny Walgate as the March Hare, Virgil Moore as the Gryphon, Bob Riddle as the King of Hearts, Ritajane Eicholzer as the Queen of Hearts, Baxter Palmer as the Hedgehog, Stan Hedgecorth as the Walrus, Barry Finch as the Caterpillar and Ivy Deason as the Lobster.

Rene Rossett: Well, it was the most different type of audition that I’ve ever heard of. Instead of having them read from the script, Diana wrote a monologue for each character to perform. She was writing them for days. We had a lot of people show up. We were really surprised. On one night there just happened to be one of the biggest storms of the year come through. But still a lot of people showed up.

Connect Savannah: Diana, what prompted you to get involved in this?

07 . 06 . 05

Connect Savannah: The cast is huge. Tell me about auditions.

Diana Scarwid: It’s really an incredible thing these days -- just to get this many older people and this many younger people in the same place, right here, right now. It’s a holy thing, really, to be able to touch massive amounts of people at the same time. You offer your own unique self to them in a safe place. Like I tell the actors, this will come and this will go. It’s all about what we leave in our wake.

Connect Savannah

Diana Scarwid: Yes! The willing suspension of disbelief. There are certain liberties taken, for example, you have to imagine when they’re shrinking and growing. The theatre is a safe place to purge. We really need that the way the world is now. Society tells us to repress, repress. Where do people put that confusion, when there’s no education and no emotion? You get everyone screaming at everyone behind closed doors. That’s the basis of evil and war.

Glory Padgett: I would have been happy with anything. When I tried out for it, I didn’t think anyone else would be auditioning. But as it turned out just about every person I knew was trying out for Alice, all my friends. It’s been weird -- when I do shows in town the cast is almost all children. Here, the cast is almost all adults. So I’m the main character with all these adults. It gets confusing.

Editor, After attending a friend's funeral in Georgia awhile back, I received a DUI. Since I lived in Illinois at the time, I attended DUI School in Illinois and completed all the required tasks I needed to complete in order to have my Illinois Driver's License reinstated, or so I thought. Anyway, it seems since I received my DUI in Georgia, I needed to attend a DUI School approved by The State of Georgia (Illinois schools aren't approved). But since my DUI arrest I have changed my way of thinking. I now use what is called common sense. Using this common sense, I contacted the Georgia Dept. of Motor Vehicles and begged them to accept the Illinois DUI School I attended as being valid because if they didn't, it would mean I would have to move to Indiana, Wisconsin, Tennessee, or a couple of other “approved” states and complete DUI School there at a considerable expense. I received a letter from Louise Strickland (Deputy Director of Driver Services) on March 18 of this year that contained these erroneous instructions: “You may submit your program from Illinois to the Georgia DHR, Attention Rowena Conley, or Mr. Lee Martus, 2 Peachtree Street, 22nd Floor, Atlanta, Georgia, 30303 for approval. If the Georgia DHR approves Illinois' program, DMVS would be able to accept your certificate.”

I don't remember the man's name who called me from the Georgia DHR on April 1, but at that time he said my paperwork was approved, and after my paperwork was forwarded to the Georgia Dept. of Motor Vehicles, my license would be reinstated. Unfortunately, this information turned out to be false as well, because during the first week of May, I received a call from the GDMV informing me that the Illinois School I attended would not be aceptable. So, several weeks of my time have been wasted as a result of this false information given to me by Louise Strickland, and other Georgia Government Employees. They got my hopes up, then shot me down. And to top it all off, either the DHR, or the GDMV lost the paperwork I sent down there that proves I attended DUI School. James West Aurora, Ill.

Now, the folks,” he then laid into them. these windows around $200,000.”

The county’s degraded athletic facilities were also on the agenda. “There are potholes. Some of the buildings have deteriorated. There is no grass and there are rocks in the fields,” Liakakis said. Answering citizens’ complaints that some facilities are underused, County Manager Russ Abolt, who supports the millage increase, said “more and more people will use them because they’ll have pride in them.” Referring to the Chatham County Soccer Complex, Shay said, “The soccer goals don’t even have nets in them. Tens of thousands of young boys and girls have used these facilities, and their abilities as young human beings have been immeasurably enriched.” Though in the past S.T.O.P. has been a formidable force, last week they seemed to have lost some of their mojo. At one point, S.T.O.P.’s Taylor was actually making Liakakis’ case for him. “We’re building a beautiful building that’s rotten at the center,” she said, referring to various county projects that went over budget, were shoddily built, or both. “Our infrastructure is not good.” Not even the Hawaiian leis were sufficient to focus the S.T.O.P. crew, who at many points seemed more intent on complaining about Trade Center cost overruns and the Hutchinson Island Racetrack than any current county projects or proposals. Even Jeff Rayno, known as a firebrand during his term on the commission, was relatively sedate -- though at one point he did insinuate that county staff might be hiding true revenue figures from the commissioners. Crediting the Stephens-Day law (see sidebar) with Chatham’s recent growth, he said, “After that bill passed we saw an influx of people from Effingham and Bryan counties, areas that are now having real problems with growth and taxation.” Rayno says his chief concern with any Chatham property tax increase is that it might “kill the golden goose of the increased tax digest.” ◗

As we go to press, the Chatham County Commission is expected to vote on a millage increase this week.

Celebrating fifth anniversary of landmark legislation, Stephens-Day founders say they’ll take their act statewide At a press conference last week, State Representatives Ron Stephens and Burke Day celebrated the fifth year of their property tax relief legislation that bears their names. The Stephens-Day property tax relief legislation in Chatham County allows for a homesteaded property to continue to increase in valuation if the owner’s tax exemption increases along with the rate of increase. The legislation was approved by by a wide margin by Chatham County voters in 2000. The two marked the anniversary recently with an announcement that they want to see the legislation enacted statewide. “Supply and demand will continue to drive up property values,” Stephens says. “It will force homeowners out of their homes.” “The biggest benefit is that there hasn’t been an increase in taxes for homeowners,” Day says. “There has been a sustained savings for them. This been a very successful program over the past five years.” The plan now is to introduce a state-wide bill in the state legislature. Stephens says it could be on the ballot by November 2006. “It didn’t raise property taxes,” Stephens says. “It protects people from having to leave Chatham County.” ◗

Smokefree Air Act in effect Georgia public health officials are hailing the new statewide ban of smoking inside most public areas, which began this past Friday. Dr. W. Douglas Skelton, director of the Coastal Health District, says, “Second-hand smoke is a real danger, and now people can enjoy their favorite restaurants or walk into public buildings without worrying about the safety of the air they’re breathing.” According to the new law, smoking will be prohibited in most public places, including: • State buildings • Restaurants/bars serving or employing persons under age 18 • Places of employment • Auditoriums • Classrooms • Medical facilities The law does provide for some exemptions, including: • Hotel rooms designated as smoking rooms; • Long-term care facilities; • Outdoor areas of employment; • Smoking areas in international airports; • Restaurants/bars which do not give access to or employ persons under age 18; • And of course private homes. There is a hotline for questions about the new law: (404) 657-3378. A website with more information is at

Ghost stories on CD Local storyteller Bess Chappas has released a CD of some of her performances of favorite ghost tales. “There is just a huge demand for Savannah-related ghost stories,” says Chappas. “The first thing a lot of tourists want to do is learn about all the ghosts we’re supposed to have down here.” Chappas, organizer of the local Tellabration storytelling events each fall, says the CD is already selling at a fast pace.

Damned Don’t Cry on DVD Our friend Ken Boyd of Cherokee Publishing sent us a note informing us that the film version of Savannah’s original “Book,” The Damned Don’t Cry, is now available on DVD. The 1950 film starring Joan Crawford is featured on a Turner Classic Movies Joan Crawford box set, now available from Warner Video ( Boyd issued a reprint of Harry Hervey’s legendary 1939 potboiler a couple of years ago, using state-of-theart restoration processes to recreate the book’s original jacket. Call Cherokee Publishing at 1-800-653-3952. The Damned Don’t Cry tells the story of Zelda, a poor girl from the shanty Irish neighborhood of Savannah’s Old Fort (now the Trustees Garden area). In true pulp fiction fashion, she dodges men with cruel intentions in search of her true love. And like John Berendt’s later Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, Hervey’s bestseller also deals with the inherent hypocrisy and class divisions of Savannah society. ◗

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police officers are mourning the death of long-serving Star Corporal Martin A. White, who died last week of cancer at age 57. White joined the department in January, 1981. Though known primarily for his quiet, softspoken manner, he was capable of heroism as well. “In 2002, he was seriously wounded as he sat in his police car carefully The late Cpl. Martin A. watching a business that White had only recently been robbed,” says police spokesman Bucky Burnsed. “Moments before the shooting he had walked a shopping center in an early morning misting rain, checking the doors of businesses to ensure they were locked and secure.” After that incident, White recovered from his wounds “and returned to the police work he loved,” Burnsed says. “The department lost a part of its soul today,” said police chief Dan Flynn after White’s passing. “He gracefully personified the best attributes of a police officer and served as a positive mentor for our younger officers.”

Of cop-outs, both theatrical and real I LOVE SURPRISES. I live for the unexpected. That’s what I was thinking the other afternoon - the kind of day when only mad dogs and Englishmen would be outside in the noonday sun - when a police van pulled alongside me as I started to cross 39th Street near the local Indianapolis Motor Speedway known as Price Street. Aha! I thought. Finally, a conversation with someone from the police department. A rapprochement. A reconciliation. A reaching-out. Finally, some attempted camaraderie in our common fight against crime and drugs, injustice and blight. “Hello, officer,” I said brightly, maybe a little too brightly, as he -- shock of all shocks -- unrolled his tinted window to talk. Maybe he would show me a picture of some wanted criminal. Maybe he would ask for assistance in some burglary. I could be a junior police officer, see what it’s like to wear blue, to carry a badge. It was not to happen. There was no hello, no help wanted. He merely stopped to say, “We have leash laws in this town, you know.” “You’ve got to be kidding,” I said, looking down at the weather-beaten dogs, panting at my feet. “In this part of town? It’s 100 degrees. We’re the only ones on the street.” Then I grew desperate, defensive, hurt. “Anyway, what about the two dogs up the street on East Broad that roam around and terrorize the neighborhood? What about those dogs?” “Not my job,” he said. “Call animal control.” Then he rolled up his window, without a hello, without a good-bye, and drove off in his continued quest to make the streets safe. Urban absurdity. Loopy behavior. But I digress. I love surprises. I live for the unexpected. Just when it seems as if the only things people in Savannah want to talk about are SCAD and its plan to take over the universe, all the real estate deals we shoulda/coulda done, the expensive commercial property on Broughton Street, something new pops up. Just when my own life has melted down to weeding or reading, laundry or cleaning out my refrigerator, gazpacho or cucumber soup for dinner, I opt for a walk downtown, a last minute stop at the

Sentient Bean for a Greek Isles sandwiches and a neutral glance at the box scores in the newspaper. And that is when I encounter CopOut, a wonderfully dark and well-acted play by John Guare, the same playwright who wrote Six Degrees of Separation. I wasn’t going to stay. How good could it be? I wasn’t going to watch. I needed to walk my dogs (my partners in crime). I wasn’t going to even inquire about the production company. What? The Fowl Brick Theater Company? Studiowest Productions? Who are they? Never heard of ‘em. Hey, my negative side says, if you didn’t even go to Spoleto this year, you didn’t need to see this play. But when I caught a few snippets of dialogue on the way out, I reversed course, took a seat, stayed the distance and never fell asleep once. The cast of two -- Tosha Fowler and Chris Brickhouse -- was great: engaging, wickedly funny, with a terrific sense of timing. Don’t ask me what the play’s about exactly, something about a cop looking for the murderer of a cat and a woman picketing against the Vietnam War -- to name two of their multiple characters -- but the writing was snappy and the plot -- such as it was -- delightfully and beautifully absurd. Just what I was in the mood for. “(It’s) pointless, really,” Mel Mrochinski said of the plot. Mrochinski, who helped direct CopOut, is a former theater professor at Armstrong Atlantic State University who taught both Brickhouse and Fowler. Now he and his wife Sheila run the Senator’s Gate Bed and Breakfast on Hall Street. Mrochinski, a 30-year veteran of the theater in Chicago; Columbus, Ohio, and Interlocken, Michigan, said Guare’s House of Blue Leaves, another nontraditional play, is even better. “Theater has to get into the deepest part of your dreams, has to show you a mirror you might recoil from, but also show you reality so you might know what to do with it.” A quote from John Guare. At its best, theater is all about surprises, is all over the unexpected. Thank you, Fowl Brick Theater Company -- whoever you are -- for providing both. ◗

She followed the juveniles to East 31st Street and confronted one of them. As she spoke to the juvenile, an elderly man came out and began shouting verbal abuse at the woman. Even after she retreated to her vehicle, she said the man continued to shout. She left the scene and observed the juveniles also leaving the scene, leading her to think they do not live there. She was given a case report number.

Finer Points of Law Registered sex offender James Andrew Crawford, 35, was arrested in May in Perris, Calif., after having camped for two weeks in a theater line that was waiting for “Star Wars: Episode III” to open. According to a Riverside County deputy sheriff, Crawford was in violation of a state law that requires sex offenders to notify the government if they adopt a new “domicile” for more than five days. In June, Marc Ferrara, 43, was convicted in Jersey City, N.J., in the 1982 hammer-beating death of his girlfriend, but perhaps because of testimony that the victim had hit Ferrara first, the jury found him guilty only of aggravated manslaughter instead of murder. However, unknown to the jury, the state supreme court had ruled in 1993 that the manslaughter statute in effect in 1982 was subject to a five-year statute of limitations (since changed), which meant that Ferrara could not be convicted, and, thus, he walked free.

Signs of the Times Dog owners trying to place their pooches with a day care service are encountering screening processes that resemble those for child admissions at elite preschools, according to a May Wall Street Journal report. Urban Tails, in Houston, requires a four-page “dog personality profile” and an evaluative “peer session” with other dogs. Dog Day Afternoons Country Day Prep in Boston requires two letters of reference, a seven-page application, and an “interview.” After her “Ghillie” was turned down by one service, a woman acknowl-

edged to the reporter that maybe her dog is “not gifted.” Methamphetamine Blues: Dentists interviewed for a June New York Times story said they are increasingly seeing patients who are addicted to the caustic methamphetamine chemicals and who demonstrate “meth mouth” in which healthy teeth turn grayish-brown and (according to the Times) “begin to fall out, and take on a peculiar texture less like that of hard enamel and more like that of a piece of ripened fruit.” (And in March in Carthage, Tenn., Scott Stewart was sentenced to eight years in prison for running a home meth lab, despite his insistence that his goal was mainly to ensure that his meth was “safe” from the harmful chemicals other makers were putting into their products.) Among the accusations against Glenn Marcus, 52, arrested in New York City in May for allegedly detaining women and torturing them as sex slaves, are that he forced one of his victims to also create a Web site for him to market his sex photos and another victim to operate the Web site for up to 10 hours a day.

Cultural Diversity Chinese men smoke cigarettes at twice the rate U.S. men do, according to a June dispatch from Guiyang by Toronto’s Globe and Mail, and that includes an estimated 60 percent of male Chinese doctors, with about 90 percent of the men believing that smoking is either not harmful or actually healthful. Implicated in these beliefs is the government, whose cigarette monopoly sells 1.8 trillion units a year (at the equivalent of about 25 cents (U.S.) a pack) and

apparently disseminates its own feelgood messages about smoking (e.g., that it enhances brain function, relieves schizophrenia, reduces the risk of Parkinson’s disease), despite also requiring small health warnings on the package. The Continuing Campaign to Make Sure No One Is Ever Offended: Organizers of the June 28 re-enactment of the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar, near Portsmouth, England (in which Britain’s Admiral Nelson soundly defeated French and Spanish ships), have decided to remove all references to the defeated nations, calling the mock battle one between the “red” and the “blue,” so as not to offend visiting dignitaries.

Ironies (1) The South Carolina House’s Judiciary Committee, voting in mid-April on two bills to upgrade the crimes of, respectively, gamecock fighting and spousal abuse, from misdemeanors to felonies, passed the former but tabled the latter for the remainder of 2005. (2) Jerry Adams, deputy finance commissioner of Tennessee, was stranded for 13 hours in an elevator in the state Capitol in May without the use of the emergency telephone because the phone’s line had been disconnected over the state’s nonpayment of the bill.

Creme De La Weird Adventures in Foil: Anthony Hudson, 43, a former city council candidate and a host of a cable TV program, was arrested in a disturbance in Akron, Ohio, in April; he was covered in silver Mylar foil, wearing an athletic supporter over his trousers, and calling himself the “King of Egypt.” And housing authorities in Sacramento, Calif., ordered the D’Souzas on Timberwood Court to take down the sheets of aluminum they had

placed around their home to stop the neighbors from allegedly bombarding them with radio waves, which they say had given them headaches, lupus and other illnesses. A Code Enforcement spokesman said there was also foil aplenty covering the inside of the house.

Least Competent Criminals In May, sheriff’s deputies in Albuquerque arrested four men on drugtrafficking charges with the inadvertent help of the 2-year-old son of one of the men, according to an Albuquerque Journal story. The father had accidentally locked his keys and his son inside his Cadillac SUV, and the boy had used the OnStar emergency button, which generated a phone call to the sheriff, and deputies arrived to find the father still pleading for his son to unlock the door (which OnStar eventually opened electronically). Deputies became suspicious at all the late-night hubbub and in a consensual search of a nearby trailer belonging to another of the men, found 1,700 pounds of marijuana.

Recurring Themes Latest Toilet Litigation: Scott A. Keller filed a lawsuit in March against the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission, claiming he was seriously injured when a wall-mounted toilet at a rest stop collapsed, sending him to the floor, causing whiplash and other injuries to his neck and back. And John Jenkins, 53, filed a lawsuit in Morgantown, W.Va., in June against the general contractor Chisler Inc. and another company, claiming that a portable toilet at a construction site exploded while he was using it (due to leaking methane gas underneath, which his cigarette ignited). Jenkins said he suffered severe burns to his face, neck, arms, torso and legs. ◗

Bird Flu Threat Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the risk of an imminent global pandemic emerging from the bird flu crisis in Asia has diminished. The WHO team made the announcement after leaving Vietnam, where they judged the threat posed to humans by the H5N1 strain of avian influenza was lower than previously thought. The U.N. agency warned that while the virus had not mutated into a deadly human pathogen, “influenza viruses are inclined to change frequently, so WHO advises Vietnam and the rest of the world to remain vigilant in its avian influenza control efforts.”

Whale Burgers Japan failed last week in its attempt to convince the International Whaling Commission to allow it to resume commercial whale hunting, but one of the country’s fast food chains announced it would market “whale burgers” in a bid to increase demand for the marine mammal’s meat. The Lucky Pierrot chain said the burgers were selling like hotcakes at its 10 shops on Hokkaido Island. Manager Miku Oh said, “We fry minke whale meat and the burger really tastes like beef.” Oh said she was aware of the international criticism surrounding Japan’s whaling efforts, but believes eating whale is part of Japanese tradition. She said people should give thanks to the whale for providing the meat used in the whale burgers, then enjoy them. ◗

Lingering hot weather and months of prolonged drought in parts of Europe have prompted health warnings and the imposition of water rationing in several communities. Italy warned that millions could be at risk from heat-related ailments as the mercury climbed across the Mediterranean region. Governments in France, Portugal, Spain and Italy rushed to implement emergency measures to avert a repeat of the large number of hot-weather deaths that occurred during the summer of 2003. In Portugal, which is facing its worst drought in 60 years, wells have run dry in 25 villages.

An unusual hole in the protective ozone layer over central Europe prompted health warnings in the Czech Republic. Parts of Germany, Austria and Slovakia were also being showered by increased ultraviolet radiation, which can cause skin cancer and more rapid sunburns. The Czech Republic’s UV index reached an all-time record high of 8.44 — a level considered extremely dangerous for fair-skinned Europeans. Satellite images showed the nearly stationary ozone hole in Earth’s stratosphere had lingered for a week over the region.

The Ethiopian Ministry of Agriculture warned that swarms of destructive locusts have crossed into the northwest of the country, while international experts say the insects threaten to wipe out crops in the war-ravaged Darfur region of neighboring Sudan. Locusts were also reported in northern Somalia and along Ethiopia’s border with Djibouti. The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization 5.3 said that while West Africa should be spared significant crop damage this summer, Eritrea, southern Sudan and parts of North Africa are at high risk from maturing locusts. Last year, the most destructive swarms in 15 years invaded sub-Saharan countries, causing extensive crop losses.

electric blues band

BOTTLES & CANS. It’s one of the more cryptic band names in the area, and while one might likely suppose that since the majority of the group’s gigs take place in bars and nightclubs that hawk libations, it’s a reference of some sort to alcohol. But after more than a year with the popular blues combo, even drummer Jason Gecik isn’t sure about that. In fact, he makes no assumptions about the genesis of his band’s moniker. “You know, it’s funny,” he says. “Ray won’t really say. I think they were just being sarcastic or something. He says don’t ask, don’t tell. (laughs)”

Savannah’s Bottles & Cans work hard to ‘come up with a different angle’

Frontman Ray Lundy chuckles when told of this exchange. “(laughs) Well, that’s just me having way too much fun with poor Jason! When I first arrived in town and put a band together, everybody told me I had to come up with a name like ‘The Blues Bangers’ or ‘The Blues Boys.’ I didn’t want to pigeonhole us, and I figured since I was using so many different

show, and that’s the most unique thing about us.” It’s also a by-product of the quartet’s rehearsal schedule. “I don’t think we’ve ever practiced in this band,” offers Gecik. “We’ve just played. From the very first day I was in the band. Ray’d give me the feel, and I’d just follow him. We’ve learned on the job.” Developing a good chemistry in front of paying crowds might be a tall order for some bands, but not the current lineup of Bottles & Cans, who’ve played together solidly for over a year now. “Everybody in this lineup has a great sense of camaraderie,” beams Lundy. “We all love working together. I think it’s safe to say that we’re always entertaining each other. (laughs) The club could be empty, and we’d still be having a good time onstage! I think that translates.” Gecik concurs. “I think we’ve got a good, tight friendship going in this band, which I’ve never had that before in any group. There’s always one or two people where you wonder when they’re gonna quit. Mike is serious about this. It’s his life. Marty is just a big kid who loves to play, and every night, Ray reassures us he’s happy with the way it all sounds. We all care about whether or not the rest are having fun.” The group continues to carve out their own niche in the local scene, reveling in such decidedly atypical (and indie-rock) influences as The Cramps, Hasil Adkins and The Black Keys. It’s that non-traditional attitude that has helped them to play a punk venue like The Jinx in addition to more standard blues-oriented rooms. All the better, says Lundy. “When we played The Jinx, I figured those people would hear us and realize that we weren’t the same old thing, and get a kick out of it. It went well, and we’re hoping to go back. If only because none of the other blues bands would even think about it.” ◗

people at the time, I’d call it Bottles & Cans, ‘cause there were so many coming in an out. Now, we’re still Bottles & Cans, but they’re all the same brand. (laughs)” The name itself is one of many aspects of the group which defy easy categorization. For one thing, the group (which also includes bassist Mike Walker and harmonica player Marty “Lockjaw” Ellis) plays as much – if not more – than any other local blues combo, yet their rough sound and carefree stage demeanor is in marked contrast to most local blues acts. “Living in Savannah has had a big impact on the way I play,” explains Lundy. “When I saw a lot of the other bands in town were playing really similar shows, I thought, man I can’t do that. I gotta come up with a different angle, you know?” The band, which plays between ten and fifteen gigs a month under their own name, also does double duty – as another high-profile Savannah R & B unit, Too Blue. That group – primarily a vehicle for frontman and guitarist Jeff Beasley and Ray Lundy to perform as a duo – often swells to include drums and bass when the size of the venue allows. Bottles & Cans’ repertoire is currently nearing eighty songs, which Walker says makes the experience much more fun. “A lot of bands have to play everything they know each night, and it gets old real fast. There’s a lot more freedom to mix things up this way.” The concept of artistic freedom comes up frequently in conversations with the bandmembers – all of whom seem to relish the unpredictable nature and freewheeling dynamic of the group. “Our show is really high energy,” says Gecik. “Ray calls the songs out, and we rarely use a setlist. It’s all in his head.” Walker says the band has to work hard to maintain that happy-go-lucky attitude. “We’ve gotten so tight on some of the tunes that we’re having to backtrack and ‘slop ‘em down,’ make things loose on purpose. (laughs) When things get too slick it takes the spontaneity out of the

This Poughkeepsie, N.Y., grindcore band writes almost incomprehensibly exacting pastiches of industrial noise, blinding guitar fuzz and trip-hop sequencing. Sound hard to fathom? It is. Just when you think you have an idea of what’s next, or where a relaxing melody or groove is headed, a jarring – if not completely incongruous – blast of abrasive metal comes out of nowhere. In an early publicity salvo, the band claimed to be influenced by both Napalm Death and Depeche Mode. However, most bands that make such seemingly ridiculous assertions are trolling for laughs. Not Genghis Tron, whose music truly represents a bizarre merging of these two disparate musical sensibilities. Screaming, atonal vocals and piercing guitar feedback meets burbling synths and Kool Moe Dee beatbox patterns. Many in the underground music community are viewing this band as one of the first in a long while with the capability to not only make artistic strides in the brutal metal scene -- which has been in a state of ketosis for quite some time now – but as well in the world of electroclash. I would not be surprised if this challenging, but refreshingly inexplicable group achieves some sort of major success across the board as well. See them now, before they blow up or implode. ◗ Fri., The Jinx.

Curated by local tunesmith Lauren Lapointe (who also serves as a master of ceremonies), this regular event at The Bean brings together touring and regional singer/songwriters for an evening of intimate music and stories. It’s a great opportunity to pick up on artists who otherwise would likely never play our area. This time around, the featured musicians include Arlington Priest, Sam Thacker and Kathy Waters. Arlington Priest is a married duo (he plays guitar and sings, she just sings). They both have varied musical experience – she used to appear at noted NYC piano cabaret Don’t Tell Mama, for instance. Now based in Decatur, Ga., they have made a name for themselves in just 2 short years, and so far have shared the stage with a number of established acts, such as HEM, Tres Chicas and Ellis Paul. Their musical influences are wide ranging, but the common denominator which runs through all their harmony-laden material is a tangible sense of both heart and soul. Atlanta guitarist and songwriter Sam Thacker is touring behind a bold new debut CD, Above The Underneath. It’s a lush and romantic collection of in-the-

One of the best Savannah bands to never quite make good on their promise was A Luta. On the scene close to a decade ago, they were ostensibly a reggae act – yet they exhibited a healthy smattering of other influences as well – from electric Delta blues to Southern soul. This Philadelphia-based combo features A Luta’s erstwhile percussionist Paul “Rootsy” Downie, and in many respects, the two groups share the same M.O. Downie and cofounder Paul Brion (guitar) display a keen interest in everything from zydeco and Creole rhythms to contemporary acoustic folk music. Brion previously served as the frontman for Philly’s popular roots reggae group The Raucous Brothers, who played the East Coast circuit for two decades. Jata’s debut album, Dirty Roots, is an above-average collection of hardgrooving material that ranges from straight-up Rasta odes to the sort of laid-back white soul excursions typified by “Under The Bridge”-era RHCP. To date, they’ve opened for such name acts as Terrence Simien, The Wailers, India.Arie, and Marcia Ball, as both as a duo, and with a full backing group. No word on which format will be on display at this gig. Sun., Riders Lounge (Hilton Head).

Slim is in, but TV cords, components still a challenge FLAT-SCREEN, HIGH-DEFINITION TV s are the latest status symbol for upscale households. And unlike their predecessors, they’re not hidden away in a cupboard. It all looks so easy. Buy a set, bring it home and decide where to hang it. But ads can be deceptive. Electrical and cable wires hanging from the back of the set do nothing for the clean, contemporary look you are going for. Face it, you have to plug the set in and connect the high-definition cable box, DVD, TiVo and perhaps even a receiver for auxiliary speakers. What are you going to do with all those wires? It’s a dilemma being addressed by home builders and electronics dealers alike. Jason Knott, editor of TecHome Builder magazine, said builders will have to learn how to accommodate the new wave of electronics as prices begin to fall and the sets become more affordable. Although the sets are lighter than tube televisions, they are heavier than most decorative accessories people hang on walls. Some can weigh nearly 200 pounds, Knott said. He recommended builders install reinforced studs in walls to handle the extra weight. He also suggested builders install several multiport jacks in rooms to give homeowners flexibility when positioning the screens. Then there is the problem of

additional electronics that go with today’s television viewing. “It’s a lot like Victorian times when indoor plumbing made bathrooms practical,” Knott explained at this year’s International Builders Show. “Now we need electronics closets to house accessories for flat-screen televisions.” Some builders have already seen the need and are building homes with niches for the screens and conduits for wiring. James Cotton of Builders II in Atlanta built an electronics closet hidden in a doorway between two rooms. Wiring from a flat-screen television hung above the fireplace in one room was routed through the wall to the closet. Pritchett Brothers Inc. of Smyrna, Ga., builds some homes with understairs electronics closets and others with conduits for wiring built into cabinets next to the fireplace. They install direct-vent fireplaces, which don’t require chimneys (they vent through the wall), and build niches above the mantel to accommodate either the largest size tube set or a 50-inch flat-screen panel. Speakers can be concealed in the ceiling.

Flat-screen TVs can blend in with the decor, and a likely place to find one is above a fireplace (above); the components (left) are tucked away so they don’t impede this room’s sense of style

IF YOU MUST HIDE THE SCREEN “[A niche over the fireplace] is a good way to conserve wall and floor space,” said Bob Woods of Keller Williams, who represents the company. “The conduit is the key. It allows you to add wiring as you need it with no additional drilling into the wall.” ◗

• Place behind a painting or a mirror that slides up and down. • Mount in a niche, and add a door that folds back or slides up. • Cover niche opening with shutters. • Put in an armoire. Many sizes will fit, but measure cabinet interior and set width carefully.

THE BASIC FLAT-SCREEN PIECES • Flat-screen television (not a monitor); some sit on a pedestal. • Experts recommend bolting down pedestals of larger screens to prevent accidental tipping.

Happy Hour All Day, Every Day

IT’S TOO DAMN HOT to drink anything warm. Give me cold water, iced cappuccino and, most definitely, chilly white wine. I crave the sensation of a cool, sweaty bottle rolling across my beaded brow, and the taste of refreshing fruit-infused acidity in my mouth. It quenches … it invigorates … it just feels good. Think about the food you hunger for during the heated months — fresh vegetables in a salad, chilled seafood, cold roasted chicken — all dishes that complement white wines. Acidity in the wine is key. It highlights the fresh ingredients in a dish and matches the sharpness in foods like tomato and citrus. Acidity delivers the zing, the tartness and the impression of crispness on the palate. If that’s what you seek, the highest acidity comes in sauvignon blanc, pinot grigio (gris) and pinot blanc. If you want the opposite — a softer, fuller-bodied wine with less acidity — then chardonnay, viognier and riesling might scratch your itch. Be careful how cold you serve white wines. I’ve tried the same wine at two different temperatures, hating it once and loving it the other, simply because the character evolved as it warmed up. Lower temperatures mask flavor; higher temperatures accentuate flavors, good or bad. It’s like drinking a fantastic, icecold beer that suddenly becomes disgusting when it warms up. If a white wine doesn’t have much aroma or flavor after you’ve poured it into a glass, it’s probably in need of some warming. Let it rest for 15 minutes, or for faster results (about five minutes), cup the sides of the glass in two hands and use your body heat. If you want to go by the book, the best serving temperature for most white wines is between 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit, but some higher-end chardonnays (those not afraid of being

“exposed” at higher temperatures) are better between 58-62 degrees.

Recommended Wines Hope Estates 2004 Verdelho Hunter Valley (Australia) -- A fairly unknown grape originally from the island of Madeira in Portugal, I’m seeing more of it lately, especially out of Australia. This wine tastes and smells like a lime margarita. Almost creamy in the mouth, yet bursts into a refreshingly acidic symphony of citrus with a drop of sweet mango pizzazz. Sweetness = 1. $10. ★★★★ 1/2 Morgan 2004 Pinot Gris Santa Lucia Highlands (Calif.) -- Very decadent and full-bodied for a pinot gris. This one could please anyone seeking a heavier wine that still has the zingy grapefruit thing, but also has overripe pear, almonds and vanilla. Sw = 2. $18.


Murphy Goode 2002 Chardonnay Sonoma (Calif.) -- A smooth, easy and comforting chardonnay from one of my favorite wineries in California. Smells like Snuggle fabric softener, and tastes elegant with rich, oaky vanilla, ripe peaches, and an inkling of zesty lemon. Sw= 2. $15. ★★★★ McManis 2004 Pinot Grigio -- California Light and subtle green grass with crisp grapefruit flavors like a good New Zealand sauvignon blanc without the price tag. Sw = 1. $11. ★★★ 1/2 Talus 2004 Pinot Grigio Lodi (Cal.) -- A perfect summer wine, with juicy passion fruit, fragrant honeydew melon, orange and energizing grapefruit in the smell as well in the sip. Sw = 2. $8. ★★★ 1/2 Vina La Rosa 2004 Chardonnay Chachapoal Valley (Chile) -- Luscious tropical fruit aroma floats from the glass, with lime, pear and peach on the sip. Sw = 3. $10. ★★★

Venus conjuncts* Mercury in Cancer & Leo from June 21 to July 15, 2005. The gracious hostess simply wants all of her guests to be happy. Most guests, along those lines, are easy to please: fine food, plentiful alcohol, pleasant surroundings, amusing conversation, beautiful people -- what could be better? Unfortunately, there exists, in this world, the type of people who are only happy when other people are

ARIES - Venus conjunct Mercury warns you, when hosting or attending parties, to know not only when to stop drinking, but also when to stop serving alcohol to rowdy guests. Some people don’t know when to stop -- so tell them when to stop before everybody stops “having fun.”

easy go,” may become “Easy come, easy gone.”

CANCER - While you must be graceful when dealing with other people, Venus conjunct Mercury warns that some unscrupulous people now wish to trespass even your generous boundaries. Don’t immediately react. Withdraw in stages. Allow a significant amount of time to pass before you demonstrate your adversarial demeanor.

TAURUS - Singles: be very careful when indulging one-night stands with somebody whom you don’t know very well in a local bar. Couples: avoid “continuing” the party after a night on the town by inviting people into your home. Venus conjunct Mercury warns that a good time can turn ugly quickly if you blur your protective boundaries. Say good night at a point when all are still enjoying themselves.

LEO - Venus conjunct Mercury warns you unconditionally not to take the hospitality & good will of other people for granted. Nobody is “entitled” to anybodyelse’s generosity. Don’t make enemies out of those who want to be friends.

GEMINI - You’ve been waiting for a couple

VIRGO - While you will indeed meet some

of years to have this much money -- so are you going to spend it in one night with some bunch of random acquaintances who want to go out drinking or gambling? Venus conjunct Mercury advises you to keep your money in your pocket -- especially if you earn your living on tips. “Easy come,

wonderful, charming people as yousocialize under the current influence of Venus conjunct Mercury, you will also meet some real losers. Know when to leave so that you won’t be on the scene when things get weird.

unhappy. These perverse individuals cultivate discomfort & mistrust through innuendo, intrigue, and, in worst case scenarios, malicious hidden agendas. Most people will try to deny such undercurrents in order to keep the peace, but others will do no such thing -- developments which will require careful, vigilant monitoring by such gracious hostesses, to prevent all untoward, unexpected explosions of pent-up ill will.

LIBRA - Demonstrate opulent generosity while peace & happiness reign. Soon, Venus conjunct Mercury warns that unworthy people will act in disgraceful ways. Deal with them as you should when you should. Show the best side of your personality to those who are truly worthy of it. SCORPIO - Don’t be lulled into such a false sense of security that you wander unsteadily across the line in the sand called “the law.” Venus conjunct Mercury especially warns that alcohol or sex can make you a little too dizzy for your own personal safety. The hammer of law enforcement knows no balance. Be careful. SAGITTARIUS - You have been so careful to insure that you & yours avoid thepitfalls of alcohol, illicit sex, credit card debt & dirty money that you are finally beginning to relax & to let your guard down. Unfortunately, as you do, Venus conjunct Mercury warns that you could meet the exact people who flagrantly flout the dangers of such pitfalls. Expel them from your life with unabashed shrieks of terror!

* A Conjunction is a harmonious aspect wherein two or more planets meet as they transit the same sign.

CAPRICORN - Venus conjunct Mercury asserts that you cannot be too careful when accepting the generosity of strangers. Heed your suspicions -- are you being tempted to do something illegal, immoral or dangerous?

AQUARIUS - Some people are all fun until the fun stops -- and then they are no fun at all. Venus conjunct Mercury recommends that you make your exit before the party ends. And, if you are single, and want to get to know so-and-so better, do so when you can meet sometime when neither of you have had a drink. PISCES - Venus conjunct Mercury reminds sensitive Pisceans that too much partying can undermine their health. Moreover, an important warning: do not drink alcohol while sunbathing. Drink water -- not beer, wine or booze -- at the beach. Dehydration can kill! ◗

MORE MONEY? MORE TIME! When you’re ready to sell your home, how will you select a real estate professional? I’ve already recommended in a previous column that you should call around, asking questions and answering some questions, too. Your greatest concern may be your bottom line, but to sell in a reasonable amount of time, you need to sell at a reasonable price.

With that knowledge, you can confidently price your home according to what you know the market will bear, and in a range that buyers will find competitive. Of course, you can put any price tag you want on your home, but don’t you want to sell more quickly at a fair price rather than overprice and wait while your listing languishes on the market?

Avoid the temptation to list with an agent simply because he or she tells you that they can sell your home for more money. Only with a complete Comparative Market Analysis in hand can you be sure that the agent has thoroughly researched the values of homes that have recently listed, sold and/or expired.

You could choose to list with an agent who tells you that you can get more money, but you might be waiting a very long time to sell at that price. Be upfront about your timetable for selling, and then ask for a CMA to price your home accordingly.
