“If I had to choose between the two, I would rather have no money and be true to my art than be rich and produce bullshit.” -- Pleasant

Connect Savannah

www.connectsavannah.com

6

THE PAST TWO YEARS have seen installations of work by the Savannah-born artist known as Pleasant spread widely across the globe. Acclaim led to greater and greater acclaim with his “Public Installation of Thought Paintings” at the Centre Pompidou in Paris (2004), his “Suspended Thoughts” exhibitions at the Dust Gallery in London and the Varga in Woodstock, N.Y. (2004). Much more followed with exhibits at the Alexander Platz in Berlin and the Octava Gallery in Sweden (2005). Why so much glamorous fuss and fury over an artist just exiting his twenties and entering his thirties? It is largely because Pleasant -- first name Jalal -- is something of a rarity among fine visual artists. Rather than restricting himself to competently producing beautiful or shocking images that earn appropriate applause, his is the sensibility of an experimental conceptualist that helps to redefine and advance the way people engage art. His bold “Suspended Thoughts” series with its mutable structure and transparent framework is only one example of this specific gift. Just as he uses invented form to challenge the methodologies of his craft, he also employs psychoanalysis as a tool in his art to make daring, sometimes even disturbing, statements regarding the modern human condition. The seriousness of Pleasant’s intent becomes immediately apparent when viewing the psychically charged expressionistic figures of his “Fire Series” or his westSavannah inspired “Fellwood Series.” The in-your-face statements made through the art are generally punctuated further with such provocative titles as: “The Bitter Shame of Men Who Have Been

Raped;” “The Nobody;” “The Day That a Black Man Cried;” and “The Monster Who Chases Me,” among many others. Pleasant’s achievement would appear to be one virtually encoded into his DNA. Take, for example, the fact that his paternal grandfather was William Pleasant Jr., an artist who painted many of the signs that adorned the businesses in Savannah’s City Market and down on River Street. Editor’s Note: William Pleasant is also the name of (E the artist’s brother, known for his local G-8 activism.) Moreover, his maternal grandfather was David Carter, a sculptor who once held the distinction of exhibiting rattan furniture in the Smithsonian Institute and whose miniature figures carved from coconuts won him the name “Coconut Carter.” Then further consider that Pleasant’s late father was William Pleasant III, whose paintings of life in Savannah during the latter half of the twentieth century now hang in the Telfair Museum and various collections around the country. Add to that rich legacy of creative vision a penchant for scientific inquiry inherited from his mother, the former educator

Sadie Carter Pleasant, and the artist’s destiny would indeed seem inevitable. Ironically, Pleasant’s current status as a rising star of the international art scene resulted from the fact that he experienced repeated difficulty finding exhibition spaces for his work in the United States. That he had attended New York’s famed School of Visual Arts, studied with such noted artists as Julian Schnabel, Martha Diamond, and Michael Goldberg, seemed to make no difference. Neither did finding a champion in the form of Austrian art curator Stefan Eins of Fashion Moda fame. Doors of opportunity refused to open for the young artist. Was the issue a matter of racism, cultural politics, personal vendettas, or the normal challenges of a young artist struggling for recognition? Rather than waiting to find out, Pleasant created his own opportunity by submitting work for 2002’s Wrong Exhibition in London and ended up placing himself on the right track to success. Since the death of this father in 1997, the artist has spent very little time in his hometown. However, he recently returned to Savannah both to prepare work for upcoming exhibits overseas and to explore the possibility of working with Stefan Eins on a project aimed at documenting the work and lives of local artists. His own very ambitious work in progress, entitled “Chases Me,” is one that has already begun to stir controversy for its examination of sensitive issues. The artist recently took a break from work in his west Savannah studio to talk with Connect Savannah.

reality of love occupy in your creative aesthetics? Pleasant: There was a point in my life when I didn’t believe that love existed. I still have issues with the idea of love. I love my art. I love people who influence me. I love those people close to me. The type of love I try to place in my work is a love for humanity, a love for human beings in that I [seek to] represent all human beings in my work. And I try to engage the human experience in an effort to help people better understand themselves, to face their greatest fears. I try to help them come closer together with their feelings as opposed to the opposite, which is so popular these days. Crying is not weakness. And delving into oneself is not weakness either. Only through looking into ourselves do we find strength.

Connect Savannah: Can you give me an example of an analytical observation that later became a work of art of some kind?

Pleasant: I’ve discovered in myself a different understanding of the world. My perspective is always changing on the world and my art helps to sort of influence that. Even though I Connect Savannah: create the art, I’m ‘Fear’ Even though you also an observer of didn’t get to know it.

Pleasant: I did one controversial painting called “The Man Who Was Labeled Sexist.” It was based upon an individual that I knew, who was called sexist because of certain comments he made about women. However, the comments stemmed from his own personal background, which included female abuse against him. So I did a painting based on my analysis of him. The painting was a conclusion in which I sort of depict him as being attacked from outside by these figures. And he’s sort of being covered by this liquid or material that’s like preventing him from moving. He’s like in this awkward sort of stance where it looks as if he’s unable to really move but he’s also trying to protect himself. And the needles are sort of sticking him. But he’s still a human being. And he still has feelings. There’s a lot of I could say about that painting, but it’s a very interesting one I did that was directly based on my analysis of someone I knew.

Cover Story

continued from page 7

Pleasant: He painted in his own particular style and didn’t try to conform himself to what other people wanted. He was also able to reflect his own identity

Connect Savannah: Speaking of progression in your art, the work you’re doing now is an ambitious project called “Chases Me.” This seems to be following a theme you established in earlier work.

Connect Savannah: So the monster that chases you is really misperception? Pleasant: Right, and that face is always put in front of mine. And I try to stay one step ahead of him, try to outrun him every day, but the monster that chases me is always following me, always trying to track me down, and I elude him many times. Sometimes he does catch me. The painting is the basis for one of my next upcoming projects, and which will be one of my most powerful pieces. I’ve shown details from it to a few people and it’s already considered controversial.

Pleasant: It’s time for me to evolve with my art, and this thing definitely represents the next step for me. It pushes moreso the conceptual aspects of my work. It integrates it full-on into my sculpture and my paintings. It’s a combination of all those things combined and fused together, to literally make a threedimensional painting in my style that is conceptual but at the same time just as in depth as “FIRE” and all those other paintings. And it’s socially conscious, it makes sociopolitical comments; however, at the same time it fulfills that category for commercial art, and pop art, and that kind of stuff. So it’s about contradictions sort of coexisting together in the same space but being one. It’s heavy, man. ◗

Connect Savannah: What about his life and legacy makes you most proud?

as well as the African American and American experience within his work. He told me if I didn’t follow my own path that I would indeed be an artist but that I wouldn’t be as significant as I could be. He said I would then be emulating as opposed to being progressive. Progression within the arts lies within experimenting and creating new ways of rendering things and processes. Even if it doesn’t catch on, even if I’m dead and it doesn’t catch on, one day it will. And that takes the world forward.

Connect Savannah: Controversy follows your work, from responses to you doing things like endowing male sculptures with visible genitalia, placing President Bush’s face on an English pound note and the image of a Muslim woman in the painting “The Day I Saw Through the Deported Woman’s Eyes.” Some would be apprehensive about this new work.

T U N

Connect Savannah

Pleasant: Oh no, I feel like I’m an extension of him. I feel that I’m continuing the legacy that he began. One of the things he told me before he died to was to go abroad and to push my work wherever I could. He warned me that I could get blackballed and rejected. He said, “Take the world as your platter. And just keep on. You have an opportunity to things I never had in this life.”

Some of Pleasant’s works

Pleasant: I did a painting titled “The Monster Who Chases Me.” In some ways it kind’a looks like a stereotypical sort of “Sambo” type face. A cartoony face. However, this has a lot to do with some of my experiences in the art world and stuff. I feel that no matter what I say or do, I present myself and my art in a very sophisticated way. But “The Monster Who Chases Me” is that face that represents some people’s perspective on who or what I’m supposed to be. And it always chases me. I try to keep ahead of the monster that chases me because he’s not really me. He was made by somebody else.

Connect Savannah: Although there were many trained black artists in the North during the mid-1900s, it was rare to hear about a black artist in the South who traveled north to formally study art and then returned to the South. But your father did exactly that, studying at Delaware State College of Dover, the Tyler School of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, and York College of York, Penn. Now that his works hang all over the country, do you ever feel like you’re competing with him as an artist?

Fishman column on SCAD a ‘biased hatchet job’ Editor, I'm frankly very disappointed in Jane Fishman's latest rant against the Savannah College of Art and Design (“Getting some heat and giving it too,� Aug. 3) It seems, based on this article, that when she can't come up with substantive and pithy content, suggestion and innuendo with some selective reframing of events and their context will work just fine, eh? I've never seen a more biased hatchet job. Maybe she should try looking up a few facts, hmmm? Like the following: 1. ACA approached SCAD with the idea of an integration of programs, unlike Ms. Fishman's characterization that implies that this affiliation is a hostile act by SCAD. 2. The terms of the 1996 out-of-court settlement, as Ms. Fishman indicates, were sealed, but that does not seem to stop her from speculating publicly about what she thinks may have happened or why.

3. Not only are the college's finances a matter of public record, but they are also a matter of scrutiny for the college's accreditation agency, which reaffirmed the college's financial good standing as recently as 1999. 4. Recently hired faculty members at ACA do not have tenure. But of course, why allow facts to get in the way of a good hatchet job? To turn Ms. Fishman's own phrase: who need facts when you've got a grudge? I'm writing this e-mail to make sure you're aware of just how precarious some of the comments she's made are and that you've taken steps to inform Ms. Fishman that innuendo, speculation, and suggestion are not the basis of an adequate foundation for honest journalism. Kevin Conlon Editor’s Note: While some of Mr. Conlon’s points may remain debatable, his fourth point is unarguable. The Atlanta College of Art has not offered tenure for quite some years now, though a few long-serving faculty do retain tenure under a prior agreement.

The facts about terrorism

The new silent majority?

Editor, While mourning the senseless loss of innocent life in London’s recent bomb attacks we need to be reminded of a few very simple facts: It is a fact is that the so-called war against terror in Iraq has worked in reverse. It is a fact that Saddam’s Iraq was not a hot-bed for terrorist activity, while that’s exactly what it is now that we have removed him and “saved� the people he oppressed. It is a fact that we are spending a tiny fraction of what needs to be spent to secure our cities and borders from terrorist attack; it’s also a fact that what is needed can’t and won’t be spent--not this year nor in any year we can reasonably expect to shine a future light upon. How do we explain these most critical facts? Very simply: We wasted the huge surplus left by the Clinton administration (while squandering our grand-children’s inheritances) on tax breaks for the wealthy and the “war on terror� in IRAQ! Archie Wilson

Editor, Surveys and polls where anonymity is the norm indicate a new party forming: Closet Liberals. By large majorities the public is in favor of socialized medicine, minimum wage increases, women’s right to chose, status quo Social Security. Conversely they are opposed to special interest groups, unfair complicated tax codes, unjust wars, executive, legislative and judicial lies deceiving the public. The strong right wing conservative minority has branded the liberal agenda as an unpatriotic extremist left wing underclass. Combined with the vast majority of the media, they expound the tried and true formula: If you tell a lie long and loud enough, the public perceives it as the truth. Combining all of the above with a heavy dose of being part of the group, image, religion and the American flag, they have succeeded in forming the Closet Liberal Party. Sal Miceli

ing to do any amount of grunt work to work their way up. Do you know many youngsters in the U.S. like that? I don’t. But that’s not all. Did you know that in 2003, accountants in this country outsourced some 25,000 basic tax returns, maybe yours, maybe mine, to accountants in India? Not so many, you say. Except that in 2004 the figure jumped to 100,000 and that in 2005 it’s expected to be 400,000. It’s all about a “work flow software program with a standardized format that makes the outsourcing of tax returns cheap and easy,” says Friedman. The next time you’re in a doctor’s office listening to your doctor speak into a Dictaphone, it’s entirely possible his or her voice is being downloaded, digitized and transcribed by someone in -- you guessed it -- India. Then, two hours later - overnight , not the typical two-week lag time if someone in the next office were doing the report -- and at one-fifth the cost, the results are returned to the doctor’s billing file. Not all the innovations are overseas. From Friedman I learned how the airline known as JetBlue has started to outsource its entire reservation system to housewives in Utah in a system they call, “homesourcing.” I read about a McDonald’s off Interstate 55 near Cape Girardeau, Mo. one of 12 McDonald’s owned by the same person - where the “voice” taking your order is in a call center in Colorado Springs, 900 miles away. Why? Lower costs, greater speed, fewer mistakes. There’s a lot more. A whole chapter on Wal-Mart, of course. And UPS. How the brown company now repairs Toshiba laptops computers at a warehouse near its Louisville hub -- to save time and money. How it hooked up with Papa John’s pizza, Nike and Mail Boxes, Etc.,o schedule the delivery of supplies. All very interesting, I’m thinking. Especially after I pick up Sunday’s New York Times and read about tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers who still lack proper body armor. All very interesting since the Pentagon has known about this problem since May 2004. Here’s the kicker: the equipment is not expected to be ready for several months. Why? Because of delays in the Pentagon’s procurement system. Earth to Washington, D.C. -- let’s get it together, guys. Because if you don’t, someone else will. ◗

I AM AWASH IN THOMAS FRIEDMAN’S book, The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century. I didn’t want to start it. I have a stack of titles perfect for summer when the day is long, the light good and the time leisurely, including a formidable (and improbable) book club offering, The Way We Live Now, a 1,024-page tome by the prolific and lengthy Anthony Trollope. But everywhere I go -- Savannah’s airport, the beach off South Haven, Mich., the Broughton Street Starbuck’s -- I see people bent over Friedman’s book. It was the woman at the beach who convinced me. If she could sit there in that delicious Michigan air, 10 feet from that delicious lake water and stick her nose in this book of nonfiction instead of looking for Petosky stones or rocks with holes in them or decades-old pieces of glass we call glassies -- and then say she thinks the book should be required reading for all high school students -- well, right then and there, I moved it up on the list. As with many of Friedman’s columns, the book is about the effects of globalization, the lightning-quick passage of business and what the creation of the Web is doing to level the playing field across the planet. It’s about what happens when a country allocates most of its resources to the military. In Friedman’s optimistic way, he is encouraged that change can come from individuals, not governments or corporations. But the subtext is what happens when the U.S. government gets bogged down in war instead of internal infrastructure. When it uses fear instead of hope as a way to rally the masses. When greed for oil replaces common sense. It’s about what happens when leaders in developing countries who have always valued education and learning -can you say India and China? -- seize the day (and the software) and rub a few brains cells together. We already know what happens when we dial for help with our computers. We reach a very polite, very competent, very low-paid, very satisfied worker in India. Right now there are about 245,000 Indians answering phones from all over the world or dialing out to solicit people for credit cards of cell phone bargains or overdue bills. It’s not just because they work cheaper, Friedman says. it’s because they’re smart, ambitious, hungry and will-

Getting kids to exercise WE’RE ALL CON CERNED about the rampant rise in childhood obesity. The dangers of this epidemic are well documented—from type II diabetes to impaired bone and muscle growth. The trick to circumventing this problem is to motivate your youngsters to exercise and adopt healthy lifestyle choices. Encourage walking to school. The Partnership for a Walkable America (walktoschool.org) has organized International Walk to School Week and Walk to School Day. To keep walking to school safe and ensuring some exercise for yourself, trade off with other parents or caregivers to accompany young children. Also, make sure older children and teens are well educated about safety and suggest walking to school in groups. Children learn best by example. Opt for the stairs, instead of taking the escalator or elevator. You can park further from the door at the mall. Instead of urging your little ones to go outside to play while you lounge on the couch, initiate family bike rides or walks as often as schedules will allow. After dinner is a particularly good time for this diversion, as an alternative to watching television. “Over the past two decades, the percentage of overweight children has doubled and sedentary behaviors, such as watching television and playing video or computer games, have become a part of everyday life.” (Fam Community Health 2002;25:10.) One study revealed that youngsters spend about 40 hours per week pursuing these electronic diversions, and approximately one in three children, ages two to seven, have a television in their bedroom. In another study, researchers found that “almost 40 percent of children had a TV set in their bedroom; they were more likely to be overweight and spent more time (4.6 hours per week) watching TV/videos than children without a TV in their bedroom.” (Pediatrics 2002;109(6):1028-35.) Television may be just one of several sedentary behaviors, but it packs a double punch when calorie-laden commercials are added to the mix. A justreleased Australian study states, “Television advertising of food to children is a contributing factor to childhood obesity. Food advertisements on Australian TV occur frequently and the majority of content is for foods high in saturated fat and sugar, most notably fast foods, chocolate and sugared cereals.” (Asia Pac J Clin Nutr 2004;13:60.)

Banning TV altogether may not be necessary. One study involving youngsters between the ages of five and seven showed health-promoting videos have a distinctly positive impact on little ones. A 15-minute exposure to an animated, interactive video about physical activity and cardiovascular health increased health knowledge by 25.4 percent compared to those who didn’t watch it. This may hold promise as one component of a family or community intervention to improve public health. (Fam Community Health 2002;25:10.) Being involved in sports is a great way for youngsters to get in shape while having fun and sharing time with friends. The key here, however, is to encourage— not force—your child’s participation in sports. Try exposing them to several sports and then allow them to choose those they find most interesting. A creative way to facilitate accountability and keep youngsters motivated to exercise is to encourage them to keep an exercise log. This allows them to track their progress, to note the distance they’ve covered walking, running or biking and to set future goals. Girls, by the age of five or six, already exercise less than boys, according to Neil Armstrong of the Children’s Health and Exercise Research Center at the University of Exeter, UK. He suggests that overprotective parents are to blame. “It’s certainly not a physiological reason. Even at crawling age, they’re [parents] allowing boys to be more adventurous than girls.” (New Sci 2000;168:16.) Armstrong isn’t alone in his theory that parents should encourage girls to enjoy the same level of physical activity and sports as their male siblings. Mayer Hillman, a researcher at the Policy Studies Institute in London, agrees that girls are overprotected. He found “only one in nine girls is allowed out alone during the day, compared with one in three boys.” (NewSci 2000;168:16.) Remember, physical activity shouldn’t be forced or used as punishment regardless of a child’s age. “Exercise should be a routine part of daily life and parents should join in, not just sit on the sidelines and watch their children romp.” (Child Health Alert 2002:2.) Adults should never start an exercise program without first consulting their healthcare provider. The same goes for children, so go seek advice together. The alliance you set with your youngsters will not only bond you, but will create a lifestyle pattern they can follow as they grow up. ◗

Priorities Intact In July, after word got out that the video game “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” could be fitted with an online update to make some of its scenes explicitly sexual, an 85-year-old grandmother in New York sued the company, Rockstar Games, for having failed to rate the game AO (adults only, age 18 and up) to take account of the modification. However, Florence Cohen apparently freely purchased the M-rated version (age 17 and up) for her then-14-year-old grandson, even though it invites players to murder, steal and engage in gang violence and attacks on police. She complained only when she found out that the M version’s unexplicit sex and partial nudity could be made explicit.

News That Sounds Like a Joke (1) In July, as teams of povertystricken soccer players from around the world showed up in Scotland for the “Homeless World Cup,” immigration officials denied entry to players from Kenya, Zambia, Burundi, Cameroon and Nigeria because they lacked funds for lodging and meals during the tournament. (2) In March, when Knoxville, Tenn., prosecutors ordered 582 parents of chronically truant students to a meeting to advise them of their responsibility to get their kids to school, 241 failed to show up.

Can’t Possibly Be True Scientists at the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research in Pittsburgh announced in June that they had drained dogs’ blood from their bodies, filled them with a replacement fluid, and then

by Chuck Shepherd

revived them by successfully reinfusing blood three hours later, thus creating for a time “zombie” dogs. During the three hours, the dogs were clinically dead, with no heartbeat or brain activity, but after reinfusion and electric shocks, they came back to life, normal with no brain damage. (Not all dogs made it back, though.) A spokesman said the technique could be tried on humans within a year. In this year’s Maccabiah Games in July in Tel Aviv, historically open only to Jews and Israelis, the 84-kg. weight class of Greco-Roman wrestling was won by Mohammad Babulfath, an Iranian-born Muslim who wrestles out of Sweden. Maccabiah authorities attribute their admission error to the inartfulness of their announcement on a wrestling Web site, phrased as an “invitation” to Maccabiah, which led Babulfath and two non-Jewish teammates to believe that they had been formally invited to compete. Once they showed up, Maccabiah officials decided to let them wrestle.

Inexplicable A Philadelphia firefighter was hospitalized in critical condition, and his wife and their three children injured, in Atlantic City in June after an accident at the Steel Pier amusement park. The five were in a ride car on the Big Splash, where after a descent, the car was to slide into the water at a high speed and soak everyone, but apparently the park workers on duty had either forgotten to put water in the basin or had not noticed that it had all drained out.

Poor Candidates for Rehabilitation: Paul Meeter, 21, just released from jail in Elk Grove, Calif., in June on traffic charges, was arrested a few hours later and charged with smuggling out the orange jumpsuit he had been wearing while behind bars. And a 15-year-old boy, who had a juvenile-court hearing on a theft charge in Macon, Ga., in July, was accused of stealing about $600 from the blind snack bar operator in the lobby of the courthouse.

Unclear on the Concept In Lebanon, Ohio, Donna Rose, 39, pleaded guilty in June after being accused by prosecutors of allowing an older man to have sex with her then-15year-old daughter. Rose’s behavior came to light when the man was arrested, at which time he produced a note, signed by Rose, which he apparently believed would absolve him. The note read: “(Curtis Lee Barnes) always had and will (have permission to have sex) until she is 18 or until they break up.” (Barnes was convicted earlier, and both he and Rose were designated as sex offenders.) Disbarred lawyer Robert M. Short, who was convicted in June for stealing $439,000 from his former Vienna, Va., law firm and who had been on the lam for two years, received a suspended sentence from Circuit Judge Leslie Alden (except for four months in jail), in part based on his promise to pay restitution of $245,000 to the law firm. However, Short’s offer was to pay it at a rate of $50 a month, which, without interest, would take 408 years to pay off.

Teachers With Standards High school basketball coach Drew Sanders, 49, was arrested in New York City in July in connection with his method of inspiring two of his summerprogram players not to miss free throws. Sanders was charged with more than 20 instances of spanking the boys’ bare but-

tocks for missed shots. And the New York Post, citing a school system investigator, reported in April that high school teacher Rhianna Ellis, 25, had gotten pregnant from an affair with one of her students but had nonetheless later graded the boy a barely passing “65” in her social studies class, due to his laziness and tardiness.

Least Competent People The Chicago Tribune reported in June that a man waiting for a train at the Sox/35th Street station on the South Side had been taken to the hospital after a train knocked him unconscious as he bent over the rail platform looking for the cell phone he had just dropped. And WSB-TV reported in June that a man had been hospitalized in Forest City, Ga., after, according to a witness, attempting to repair a speaker wire by using, in some undisclosed way, a .22-caliber bullet. “At some point,” the station reported, “the man ended up with a piece of wire in his neck.”

Recurring Themes News of the Weird has reported on Americans singularly obsessed, beyond all distraction, with the alleged illegality of U.S. income taxes. In July, an Australian family was convicted in Melbourne of defrauding the Tax Office, after converting its farm in Victoria into the “Principality of Ponderosa,” claiming it was an independent kingdom that owed Australia nothing for its income from polystyrene box manufacturing. Virgilio Rigoli and his sons (including “Little Joe,” 25) had issued a Declaration of Independence in 1994 and required passports for anyone crossing the border “from” Australia. According to their lawyer, what initially angered the Rigolis was the Department of Agriculture’s bulldozing a crop that had become infested with a pest. ◗

Your Security Why do I need a firewall on my computer system? Is it really necessary to have one installed? — Brian K. If your computer is not protected when you connect to the net, hackers can gain access to personal information on your computer —if they can, trust me, they WILL. Those little terrorists can install code on your computer that can destroy files, cause malfunctions and other calamities. These jerks can also actually use your computer to cause problems on other computer systems that are connected to the internet (this helps to hide their identity).

Local songwriter Dave Williams sees the premiere of his first play OVER THE PAST few years, Dave Williams has worn plenty of hats in our local underground music scene: He’s been the frontman and main songwriter for the underrated indie-rock group HoboErotic; he’s been a focal point of the acoustic Americana act The Darlins; and he’s been a champion of many other nascent talents in Savannah’s burgeoning alternative rock community. Hell, he even ran for mayor a few years back. Sort of. But one thing Dave Williams has never been accused of being is a playwright. Until now, that is. This weekend, his first play – the twoact music-scene dramedy Open Mike – will premiere on the campus of Armstrong Atlantic State University (although it is not actually sponsored by the school), and to hear Williams tell it, he’s as surprised as everyone else that he had it in him. “I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of doing this,” he says. “But the truth is, I did it on a whim.” Although the affable guitarist and singer had studied drama briefly in high school, and actually nabbed the lead role of Conrad Birdie in the musical Bye Bye Birdie his senior year, he’d fallen out of theatre upon entering college, and put all his energies into songwriting. It seems, however, that in the end, all it took to get him loosened up enough to try such a feat was a few beers. “A few days before my birthday, me and some friends were out drinking, playing pool, and talking about plays. “One of them had just put on a production of Closer a few months ago. I asked her if I wrote a play that didn’t suck, would she consider directing it. She said she’d definitely consider it.”

The cast of Open Mike That friend was Kristi Snyder, who founded Stegosaurus Entertainment with her friend, screenwriter Kirk White (himself a former professor at AASU and finalist for the Project Greenlight movie financing competition). Snyder says she’s known Williams for some time now, and while she knew he was talented, he can also bite off more than he can chew. “I really couldn’t believe he held up to his end of the bargain,” she says with a laugh. “I mean, it was a ten-minute conversation in a pool hall! But three or four days later, he calls me up while I’m down in Florida and tells me he’s finished!” Once she examined the play, she was surprised at what she found. “You know, it was a great read,” says Snyder. “It was funny and witty, and even though it was about a situation I was unfamiliar with, I was drawn in to the story. Once Dave explained to me what some of the references meant, I appreciated it a lot more, and hopefully the way we’ve staged the show will allow the audience to get those references, even if they’ve never been to an Open Mic or hung around songwriters.”

KEVIN BARRY’S Irish Pub & Restaurant Voted Among The Top 10 Irish Pubs In America By America’s Best Online

While the stereotypical drama that surrounds musical amateur nights, or “Open Mics” may have felt foreign to Snyder, Williams was as comfortable in this milieu as one could imagine. A veteran of such musical free-for-alls, he says he immediately gravitated toward this environment when choosing a setting for his first foray into drama. “Open Mics are naturally a bit of a freakshow,” he offers. “It’s both disastrous and funny at the same time. It’s hard to believe the variety of people that get up there. There’s so much ego involved just in stepping on stage, and it can bring out the clown in folks. But, even then, you can still wind up catching some amazing performances by complete amateurs.” He says the forty-page script draws liberally on his own experiences, and that many aspects of the play’s eight characters are taken directly from conversations he’s witnessed or been part of in our own local music scene. That said, he’s unconcerned that any of his acquaintances will see themselves in his show. “There’s nothing vicious or specific in there. It’s mostly composite characters that I’ve drawn from real life.” And, as in real life, these actors are required to perform songs on their own, just as they would at a real Open Mic. Williams says that he’s enjoyed this process so much, he’s looking forward to penning another short play soon. And would Snyder be up for working with the budding author again? “Definitely,” she smiles. ◗ Open Mike runs August 18-21 at 7 p.m .at the Jenkins Theatre Black Box on the campus of Armstrong Atlantic State University. Tickets are $5 .

Liquid Ginger

Here’s a great reason to check out two up-and-coming regional bands: it’s free. Sponsored by Smiling Buddha Tattoo Studio (in honor of their ten-yearanniversary), this double-bill of greaser rockabilly and skinny-tie raunch has good time written all over it. With their matching white shirts and dark ties, Atlanta’s Cogburns (three guys and one girl, thank you very much) seem less like a family, and more like a prepschool cult. Their distorted, drop-anddrag guitar noise is about as straight-up as it comes, with squirrelly guitar fills in all the right places, taunting background vocals, and plenty of pounding drum breaks. It’s snide, ham-fisted attitude turned into boisterous twang-rock. Charleston’s Defilers on the other hand, are “all tore up” with the greaser ethos. They’ll remind some of the glory days of the type of bands that frequented this venue’s previous incarnation The Velvet Elvis, and fans of slapback echo and lovelorn rave-ups should be in heaven. Fri., 10 pm, The Jinx.

Band In The Park This polished rock and boogie cover band is made up of six longtime players with a wealth of experience, plus the ability to hold back when required – and cut loose when the material demands it. Their thick, fat sound is anchored by a setlist that leans heavily on tried and true favorites by the likes of Van Morrison and Rumors-era Fleetwood Mac, but dips ever so slightly into unexpected territory (it’s both great and weird to sit in a bar, drinking beer and tapping your foot to a fire and brimstone blues from Dylan’s Messianic period), this group does a decent job of straddling the line between corn and gold. You’ll hear tunes from the ‘40s and ‘50s at their shows, as well as Bonnie Raitt’s ever-so-cool arrangement of the late Del Shannon’s “Runaway.” For background music, it’s hard to beat that. Fri. Sat., 9:30 pm, Scandals (Tybee). ◗

The last time this Atlanta-based jam trio passed through town, they were touring in tandem with a screening of the recently-released documentary film Beanland: Rising From The Riverbed, which charted the strange, intermittent, and highly-influential career of the Mississippi based hippie-rock outfit Beanland. Members from that seminal Southern improvisational act went on to join granola superstars Widespread Panic, and that’s only one of the connections to that outformation enjoys to that internationally-famous Athens group. Guitarist Sam Holt worked for years as the guitar tech to Panic’s late axeman Michael “Mikey” Houser, and Outformation’s self-titled debut EP features a cover of a song originally written by Houser. Says Holt of his mentor and former employer, “One thing he gave me more than anything was confidence.” That confidence is palpable on the group’s six-song 2003 debut, and one assumes it will carry through on their upcoming full-length, which is being produced by Panic’s keyboardist (and former Beanland member) JoJo Hermann. With plenty of opening slots under their belt (for everyone from Panic sideproject Stolkholm Syndrome to the more pop-leaning Jerry Joseph – of Jackmormons fame), the group seems to have a leg up on most of the competition. Wed., August 24th, JJ Cagney’s.

Now that this extremely popular regional pop act has regrouped with a new bassist and rededicated themselves to playing locally as much as possible, it seems that, much like The Bangles, they’re everywhere at once. When key members Rick and Ginger are not off doing their acoustic duo thing, the full band has been making the rounds of all their old haunts (they’re especially wellliked on the islands), and word is they’re still packing in capacity crowds eager to hear their glitzy, image-oriented take on modern rock. Both of their self-financed indie CDs stand as above-average examples of catchy, mainstream songcraft, and anyone who digs unambiguous singalongs of the type typified by No Doubt, Avril Lavigne or even 3 Doors Down may get a kick out of Savannah’s current best shot at making VH-1 (providing VH-1 starts playing music videos again). Fri. - Sat., 9:30 pm, The Oyster Bar (Wilmington Island).

“Barbecued bologna is a Memphis favorite, and it was actually one of Elvis’s favorites as well,” says Trice “You take the whole bologna and slit all over, then smoke it. It’s served thick-sliced as a sandwich with barbecue sauce and coleslaw on top.” Angel’s also has a pork sandwich on the menu. And what would barbecue be without the appropriate side dishes? How about some mac n’ cheese, BBQ baked beans, greens and coleslaw (they have fries too). But before you order up, know this: Aside from the mac and the beans, these are not your grandma’s go-alongs. While at the Academy, Trice met a gentleman from our own barrier islands who showed him an old West African way of cooking greens. You will find no fatback or ham hocks in this recipe; what you will find is peanuts. The greens are cooked in a tangy, mild peanut sauce, and while they may not be what you’re used to, they are definitely worth giving a try. The coleslaw is another Memphis method of preparation using a vinegar and mustard base rather than the either sweet or spicy mayonnaise based coleslaws of our area.

The humble exterior of Angel’s BBQ Although the previous items are the only ones on the core menu, other dishes, such as Hop N’ John, Andouille Sausage and Chicken Gumbo and Tasso (spicy pork pieces) and Corn Stew have been offered as Soups of the Day, with dishes such as Brunswick Stew to be added in the future. Before I left, a final question occurred to me: Where did the name Angel’s BBQ come from? Aileen laughed and let me in on the secret.. “Andrew wanted to be a writer before he went into cooking,” she explains “When we were first dating, he wrote a children’s book called Birds and the Bees, and he illustrated me in it as an angel. I’ve been his angel ever since.” ◗

bubbly: La Grande Dame from Veuve Cliquot. And he did. When the smooth, tangerine lemon-lime elegance hit my tongue, my world changed, and I knew why people lay out $150 for certain bottles of champagne. I melted like silly putty on hot cement, swooning from the experience, into the eager arms of my grinning boyfriend. But the first time I had a pinot noir that made me weak in the knees, 2000 Domaine Serene Evanstad Reserve Pinot Noir ($48), the flood of earthy, raspberry and blueberry-laden flavors overwhelmed my sense of pinot normalcy. I was sitting at an otherwise uneventful wine seminar in Atlanta, drawing on a napkin or something, when Domaine Serene came into my life. The perfect balance of coaxing tannins, elegant, rich fruit and soft acids made me realize that pinot can be what Miles says it can be… sex in a bottle. The perfect dessert pairing can be the best part of a meal. Forget the vegetables and protein, give me chocolate and red zinfandel and I’ll be the happy one playing quietly by herself in the corner. I once took a bunch of friends to Hawaiian-themed Roy’s, whose decadent Melting Hot Chocolate Soufflé is a regular habit of mine, and the sommelier suggested a glass of EOS Zinfandel to complete the nirvana. EOS is a winery in Paso Robles, where zinfandel grows up to be big, cherry, raspberry fruit-bombs, thus it’s a perfect partner to semi-sweet chocolate. Yep-a-roo. Roy’s Chocolate Soufflé and EOS Zinfandel, all the clichés apply: two peas in a pod, peanut butter and jelly, sunrise and sunset. Sigh… Flavor memories also abound from the panic situations you find yourself in — like last year’s four hurricane scares in Tampa, where I live. I drank more of my prized bottles in three weeks than I have in three years, but I cherished every moment I spent enjoying them with friends. And that’s what flavor memories are all about, right? ◗

A FLAVOR CAN EVOKE A WORLD of memories. When I smell something, I can still recall the exact sensations in my mouth, like the sweet, suntanlotion, coconut-ness of my first perfect piña colada on St. Pete Beach. But most of my flavor memories revolve around wine. My first wine memory occurred in Switzerland, where I lived for two years after college. I was fortunate enough to date a guy whose family was in the wine business. My first experience with dessert wine — and with wine that had been aged for a long time — originated in a bottle of 1947 Chateau d’Yquem Sauternes. Everyone at the table gawked as La Petite Americaine writhed in bliss, reduced to a salivating Pavlov dog. I never knew aged wine could taste just like roasted green apples tinged with rich caramel, pears and peaches. I quickly became hooked on dessert wines, but given the rarity and expensiveness of the older Yquems, that’s a drug I haven’t tried since. Then there’s my cheese dealer, Raymond Hook, who set me up with an aged blue cheese from New Zealand and its best friend, Dow’s 10 year-old Tawny Port ($27). I’ve always loved the unctuous, dark fruit-ness of port and its affinity for blue cheese. But this time, the two were soul mates shagging on a sultry summer night. Loaded with caramel (I loved Kraft caramel cubes as a kid, so I’m sensitive to its presence), a splash of candied orange with a sweet finish that doesn’t end. The salty, sourness of the blue cheese is soothed by the sweetness of the port, creating a flavor memory unmatched since. When the world was supposed to end on New Year’s Eve 1999, I definitely wanted to end it right, with an empty bottle of expensive champagne firmly attached to my rigid, ash-crusted hand. I was but a youngster at the time, with hardly enough money to afford The Good Stuff, yet somehow managed to convince my boyfriend — who owned a wine shop — to cough up the quality

FILM|

by Matt Brunson tiful that it almost hurts to look at her, plays Sarah Nolan, a recent divorcee who takes a chance on meeting single men who contact her through an Internet dating service. John Cusack, so adorable that even heterosexual guys might feel inclined to give him a big bear hug, portrays Jake Anderson, one of her prospective suitors. Over the course of the film, they date and dally with other people, yet they find themselves repeatedly drawn to each other. Elizabeth Perkins (as Sarah’s sarcastic sister), Christopher Plummer (as their suave dad) and especially Stockard Channing (as the dad’s girlfriend) excel in key roles, yet the movie firmly belongs to its stars: Lane as a warm and empathic woman who’s generous to a fault and Cusack as a sensitive artisttype (he builds wooden boats by hand) who watches Dr. Zhivago incessantly. You either buy into this fantasy or you don’t -- me, I happily wallowed in it.

BROKEN FLOWERS ✰✰✰1/2

With rare exception, the lead actors in Jim Jarmusch films tend to be low-key and laid-back: Think Johnny Depp in Dead Man, Forest Whitaker in Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai or the principal cast of Stranger Than Paradise. Bill Murray is presently carrying on the tradition, first with his brief appearance in Jarmusch’s vignette-driven Coffee & Cigarettes and now with his starring role in Broken Flowers, a lovely little film that has emerged as one of the brightest -and most atypical -- releases of the summer movie season. Here, Murray plays Don Johnston, whose seemingly catatonic existence receives a muchneeded jolt -- not so much from the departure of his fed-up girlfriend (Julie Delpy) as from the arrival of an anonymous letter claiming that he has a son who’s been kept hidden from him for the past two decades. Don’s next-door neighbor Winston (Jeffrey Wright), an amateur sleuth, talks him into providing him with a list of long-ago girlfriends who could possibly be the mother of his child (and the writer of the letter). Armed with this info, Winston creates a itinerary and pushes Don out the door with the mission of visiting these women and solving the mystery. “I’m a stalker in a Taurus!” So what we have, in essence, is that most American of movie genres: the road picture, in which an inquisitive individual travels across this great land of ours not only seeking some sort of closure but also coming into contact with citizens who cover the social strata. Broken Flowers is a movie of wry humor and wry observations, yet it’s precisely because of Murray’s approach that the film works as well as it does: Rarely has an actor conveyed so much by doing so little. Yet Murray’s not working alone, thanks to the contributions of the women playing his former flames.

FOUR BROTHERS ✰✰

Say this for Spike Lee: Nobody can ever accuse the man of being a sellout. Even as his movies continue to draw tiny audiences and (presumably) lose money for their studios, he has steadfastly remained true to himself, making pictures that matter to him personally. The same, alas, cannot be said for fellow African-American filmmaker John Singleton, who went from the Oscarnominated triumph of Boyz N The Hood to helming 2 Fast 2 Furious, the junky sequel to another director’s The Fast and the Furious. Four Brothers finds Singleton again slumming, this time in the service of a standard revenge flick that was a lot more fun when John Wayne and Dean Martin tackled the basic premise in The Sons of Katie Elder. The brothers of the title are Bobby (Mark Wahlberg), Angel (Tyrese Gibson), Jeremiah (Andre Benjamin) and Jack (Garrett Hedlund), who grew up in the care of a foster home provider (Fionnula

THE SKELETON KEY ✰✰1/2

The Skeleton Key serves as a perfect bookend to the earlier summer release Dark Water. Here we have two thrillers that attempt to move away from the yawn-inducing norm by focusing as much on character and atmospherics as on the pre-packaged thrills; furthermore, both films have the audacity to sidestep bogus happy endings in favor of conclusions that conceivably might leave audiences unsettled. Not surprisingly, Dark Water failed to catch on, and there’s no reason to believe that The Skeleton Key won’t meet the same dismal fate. Kate Hudson stars as Caroline Ellis, a caretaker who’s hired to look after a stroke victim (John Hurt) who resides in a creaky mansion in the middle of the Louisiana swamps. The patient’s wife (Gena Rowlands) views Caroline with suspicion, though she quickly earns the trust of the elderly couple’s lawyer (Peter Sarsgaard); at any rate, it’s not long before it’s Caroline who has to keep her guard up, as mysterious events suggest that a paranormal presence might be living within the house. Flanagan) who raised the boys after nobody else wanted them. Now grown up, the lads return to their Detroit home after they learn that their mom was killed during a convenience store holdup. But as the siblings snoop around, they realize that she wasn’t an innocent bystander but the target of a planned hit. The four lead actors establish an easygoing camaraderie, but that isn’t enough to overcome silly supporting characters, a hard-to-swallow plotline and a ludicrous climax set on a frozen lake. This is also the sort of movie where a villain’s ruthlessness is established in short-hand by the fact that (gasp!) he swipes a fat kid’s candy bar. Still, let’s not be too harsh on Singleton, who deserves credit for attaching himself as producer to the recent Hustle & Flow.

of being tagged The Next Big Thing, delivers a strong performance as Lisa Reisert, whose flight home to Miami turns into a terror trip once she discovers that the charming guy (Cillian Murphy) sitting next to her will manipulate her into helping him assassinate the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security (Jack Scalia). Knowing that her father (Brian Cox) will be slain if she doesn’t cooperate, Lisa, motivated by a tragedy in her own past that the movie only reveals gradually, will do everything in her power to save both Poppa and the politician. Like last year’s equally preposterous guilty pleasure Cellular, Red Eye may not expand the parameters of the thriller genre but it certainly knows how to make its way inside its well-established conventions.

RED EYE ✰✰1/2

MUST LOVE DOGS ✰✰✰

Red-Eye qualifies as the best movie that director Wes Craven has ever made, and if that sounds like damning him with faint praise, so be it. But unlike the junk that has come to define his inexplicably lengthy career (The Last House On the Left, The People Under the Stairs, Scream), this new film at least feels like an A-list project rather than the usual masturbatory exercises in misogyny that he usually foists upon a complacent public. Rachel McAdams, who in less than two years has proven herself worthy

Many of the elements that have made the contemporary romantic comedy such a grueling (and formulaic) experience are present in Must Love Dogs, and yet the movie nonetheless will work for those willing to surrender themselves to its dreamy passion. The film’s success begins and ends with its leading players, and yet it’s important not to under value director Gary David Goldberg’s script (adapted from Claire Cook’s novel), which adds some interesting quirks to a familiar framework. Diane Lane, so beau-

THE DUKES OF HAZZARD ✰1/2

Airing from 1979 to 1985, the TV series The Dukes of Hazzard was created for people who had trouble following the plotlines featured on Three’s Company. Inspired by the glut of so-called “hick flicks” that dominated drive-ins throughout the 1970s, the hit show was primarily an excuse to showcase good ol’ boy shenanigans amidst plenty of car collisions. This film version follows suit, and the entire enterprise, appropriately enough, can be summed up in the sort of blurb found in TV Guide: “Bo (Johnny Knoxville) and Luke (Sean William Scott) try to prevent the corrupt Boss Hogg (Burt Reynolds) from seizing all the land in Hazzard County for his own devious purposes. Daisy: Jessica Simpson. Uncle Jesse: Willie Nelson. 97 minutes. (Repeat)” But let’s be honest: If you’re a fan of either the original series and/or Johnny Knoxville, you’ll probably get your money’s worth, so ignore the critics and zoom on over to the multiplex.

SKY HIGH ✰✰1/2

Better than Fantastic Four but nowhere near the league of The Incredibles, Sky High is yet another feature film that centers on a family of superheroes. Cribbing as much from X-Men and the Harry Potter series as from the aforementioned pair, this live-action Disney romp stars appealing Michael Angarano as Will Stronghold, the son of superhero legends The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston). As a freshman at Sky High, a high school populated exclusively by kids with special powers, Will is expected to emerge as a hero ahead of his time; instead, his lack of powers finds him relegated to the “Hero Support” classes, where he and other underachievers learn the basics to becoming a sidekick. ◗

Thereus in Aries trines the Sun in Leo opposite the Full Aquarius Moon on August 19, 2005. The lines dividing local, state, provincial, federal & international issues, concerns, policies, elections & interests are now hopelessly entangled. For this reason, the penchant for stealth amongst the honest, and the tendency for deceit amongst the corrupt, proactively anticipates the necessity for the cover-up previous to the reve-

ARIES - You cannot make rapid progress untangling the truth about complex legal, political & financial situations. Therefore, patiently record personal information such as alma maters, professional affiliations & travel destinations about all the people involved. Initiate multicriteria sorts to determine overlaps & connections. TAURUS - Research which local power brokers are connected to which individuals on other parts of the world’s stage. Eventually, you will be using this knowledge everywhere you go, no matter what you may be doing.

lation, thus rendering the uncovering of the veil impossible, impenetrable & nonnegotiable. In light of such a stonewall, those investigating such political, professional & military developments, whether law enforcement, journalists or spies, are left with very few clues, which may indeed be strictly limited to which names appear in which distributions of e-mails, memoranda & private, confidential correspondence.

such as Elmore Leonard, Carl Hiaasen or Janet Evanovich. Use this "crime story" genre model as a springboard against which to flesh out some of your more hidden, latent ideas.

VIRGO - Why get along with bosses, employees & colleagues if you do so to their benefit & at your expense? Develop a communication strategy wherein you establish boundaries so that you will not endure the lethal pain of the status quo’s fatal equilibrium.

CAPRICORN - Your place in the spotlight means money to

romantic life much more remotely from the arenas of your professional existence. Jealously guard your privacy from the caretakers of "the grapevine."

LIBRA - An extremely aggressive ally recklessly makes direct overtures to extremely powerful individuals. You, however, can use this ally’s antisocial graces to your mutual benefit (as long as you include . . . the following disclaimer, "Some people have a unique way of approaching public relations & sales . . . ").

CANCER - Even if you did attain a powerful professional position, wouldn’t you still be dealing with the same broken-down infrastructures that make you feel so alienated? Therefore, if political jockeying makes you angry & unhappy, then do not do it – no matter how well it pays.

SCORPIO - You are appalled because you have seen so many well-connected professional superiors twist, or tolerate twists upon, the truth. Therefore, rejoice! Revere the freedom that you earned because you would not allow worldly Maya to distort your direct perception of reality.

somebody. However, only if you have behaved honorably will you be able to claim any of that money; otherwise, paparazzi will make many a coin creating bad luck talismans with your name written all over them. Either way, expect to see your name on many lists with your so-called "peers."

AQUARIUS - Over time, many opponents committed to defeating you failed as a result of their own specific personal flaws. What will surprise them, however, is that you never, ever forgave them. Should you express such feelings now – or should you just continue to ignore such opponents as if they don’t, and never did, exist? PISCES - Your reputation is too closely aligned to the reputations of a narrowly defined peer group. Damage to the reputation of any one such peer can directly damage your own reputation. Prepare an aggressive strategy designed to distinguish you from the nameless, faceless pack. ◗

Call Dicky Mopper 912.663.5500 dmopper@mopper-stapen.com

No. You only need one agent, no matter how many homes you want to see. Actually, you should choose an agent before you even begin your home search. Here's why. Most agents are able to show not only their own listings, but those of all other agents too. Agents have a professional fee-splitting arrangement that encourages showings of all homes, so you can see as many as possible, with-

out the inconvenience of moving from agent to agent.

Agents and companies provide each other with complete information on all homes for sale, so you can work with a single agent to obtain details about any property you choose. This reduces the tedium of explaining your objectives over and over with different agents. The agent can then take the time to locate specific homes that fit your needs, and then preview them to eliminate those which are unsuitable. Finally, the agent will set appointments to see a wide selection that fit your criteria. Taking time to select an agent first will save untold hours of searching and frustration. Soon, the right home will appear, and the decision will be easier than expected.
