Sunday event celebrates 100 years of public ownership of Bonaventure Cemetery

N

ot every city would dedicate an entire day to celebrate a cemetery. But then again, Savannah’s not every city. This Sunday, a remarkable and unique event will take place in Bonaventure Cemetery, as the city, the Bonaventure Historical Society and other groups join forces to offer a Bonaventure Centennial Celebration marking the cemetery’s hundredth year of public ownership. There will be refreshments, information booths, history lectures -- and of course the beautiful, poignant vistas of Bonaventure itself. “There will be an incredible amount of activity,” says event organizer Beth Delnostro, who stresses the educational nature of the event. “We’re not going to have a bunch of blowup things waving around,” she says. “Nothing will be sold -- the refreshments are free. We’re making this about education. ” From noon until 4, historical elements of Bonaventure Cemetery will be showcased, as well as modern-day exhibits from over two dozen organizations involved with the

history and operation of the cemetery. At 2 p.m. a more formal program takes place, with presentation of the colors by the American Legion, a short speech by Mayor Otis Johnson and a talk by local historican Hugh Golson. Though burials took place there as far back as the 1700s, Bonaventure didn’t become a true community cemetery until 1907, when the city acquired the acreage from a private firm which had run the site for much of the previous century. “It wasn’t until then that it became a public cemetery, but Bonaventure has always been a landmark site that has fascinated people,” says Jerry Flemming, the city of Savannah’s director of cemeteries. “When it became a public cemetery that’s when it opened up to the Greek community, the Jewish community, and a number of other groups.” Interestingly, Savannah’s Greek community is also celebrating a centennial this year, marking the establishment of St. Paul’s Greek Orthodox church here. By the time of the city’s purchase of

Bonaventure in 1907 and the establishment that same year of St. Paul’s in its original site at Duffy and Barnard, over 100 Greek immigrants lived in the Savannah area. (The congregation purchased the Lawton Memorial Building at Bull and Anderson in 1941, where it’s based to this day.) While most early burials were in Laurel Grove, in 1918 the community decided to buy eight lots in Section K of Bonaventure, and that section grew to be largely occupied by Greek burials and a few others of Eastern Orthodox background. “What’s unique about this Greek section K in Bonaventure is that many of the tombstones were carved with Greek lettering,” says Helen McCracken, a St. Paul’s parishioner who’ll be staffing an information booth this Sunday about the Greek presence in the city and in Bonaventure. “The Greek lettering on the monuments indicates the name, place and date of birth of the deceased,” she says. “Sometimes they also include a short sentiment.” McCracken explains that while the Greek presence in Savannah goes back to the mid-

1800s, the main wave of Greek immigration was from 1907-1920. “Most of the early immigrants were single men, since it wasn’t acceptable for women to travel on long and difficult trips,” McCracken says. “Most of those early immigrants didn’t plan to stay away from their homeland forever.” Instead, their hope was to make enough money to provide financial help for their families back in Greece, and especially to provide dowries for unmarried sisters. “A Greek man couldn’t marry unless his sisters were first married,” says McCracken. Indeed, while Bonaventure is known for its beauty, what keeps people coming back again and again are those individual names carved on those individual stones. Some lived to very old ages after a lifetime of accomplishment. Some were buried as children in tiny plots, victims of disease, drowning or misfortune. But all had stories to tell. When you stroll through that Greek Section K -- or the nearby Jewish cem-

etery with its Holocaust survivors, or the humble Spanish-American veterans burial site, or the old tombs near the bluff of the Wilmington River hosting the remains of some of Georgia’s leading historical figures -- you realize that for those interred at Bonaventure, death ironically serves to highlight their life stories all the more. Many names both obscure and notable have been inscribed on Bonaventure’s tombstones, including Johnny Mercer, Conrad Aiken, Georgia’s first governor Edward Telfair and his daughter Mary. But as Flemming says, “From somebody’s point of view everybody is notable, so I try not to get into all that.”

out, “what ‘The Book’ did was prompt the Society to open the visitors center on Saturday and Sunday.” Flemming says that city staff is sometimes so overwhelmed with tourists asking for information that it can be difficult to serve the cemetery customers. “With the Society operating the visitor center, they can handle all the information requests, and that allows our limited weekend staff to deal with our customers,” Flemming says. “In all honesty, I wouldn’t mind see-

ing the Society volunteers seven days a week. There’s really never a slow period in Bonaventure as far as tourism goes.” Hill says the Society is cooperating in that goal. “We want to try to have that visitors center open every day, because it’s just amazing the number of people that come in that cemetery on a daily basis.” Flemming says while both private and public cemeteries are important, a large and historic site like Bonaventure is best managed as a public asset. “A 100-acre site like this couldn’t af-

With the tourist boom in the ‘90s following the publication of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil -- which featured the late Jack Leigh’s iconic photograph of a Bonaventure gravesite on the cover -the cemetery became the hot property it is today. And that’s where the Bonaventure Historical Society comes in. “They’ve been in existence since 1994 and we’ve worked with them ever since,” Flemming says. “A great thing they do is operate the visitor center when we’re out of the office, especially on weekends.” Currently chairperson of the organization, Mildred Hill says that while the Bonaventure Historical Society was already established before “The Book” came

We’ve got live oak trees that are 250 years old,” he says. “If you have a public treasure like we do in Savannah with Bonaventure, you have an obligation to take care of it,” he says. “That applies to cemeteries as well. Fortunately the Savannah community, who pays taxes to support cemetery conservation, has that understanding.” Mildred Hill of the Bonaventure Historical Society points out that “Not too many cities have a Department of Cemeteries. Some cities might maintain a historical cemetery, but they don’t really have a whole department. That’s one place I don’t mind seeing tax dollars go. And the city does real restoration work -- they’re not just interested in every square inch being a cemetery lot.” While its municipal status is relatively young, Flemming says that theoretically “you could say the cemetery was first developed in 1794 when Governor Tattnall buried a relative here.” Bonaventure’s abundant beauty and once-remote location made it a natural choice as a cemetery, and Flemming says talk of making it public goes back much further than the actual 1907 sale to the city. “You see that as early as 1842, when Henry Jackson was talking about the fitness

No child left to learn N

its disabled students had sub-par test scores. When you think about that for a minute, you see a certain “Lord of the Flies” sentiment going on. By making disabled students responsible for a school’s “failure,” doesn’t that just marginalize them even more than they already are? And what message does that send to those students that did well? Please note I’m not trying to minimize the deep and serious problems of attendance, discipline and academic malaise that currently infect Savannah schools. These problems definitely exist and they definitely need addressing, and soon. What I’m saying is that NCLB, by penalizing the group for the actions of a few, sends the wrong message about education -and about success. In short, it blames teachers and students for the failures of society. NCLB is a red herring that sends educators on a fruitless quest to hammer out all differences between wildly disparate groups while taking attention away from the real problems: Students growing up in homes where parents are disengaged, in a country where leaders aren’t held accountable, in an increasingly anti-intellectual culture that simply doesn’t value education. It boggles my mind that a second grade teacher in Savannah, Ga., is held more accountable for their actions than any CEO or judge or elected official. Or any parent, for that matter. Are we really to put the entire burden of raising the next generation on the backs of underpaid, overstressed schoolteachers? Are we really to tell all students, no matter how diligent, at a school that doesn’t meet AYP that their school is “failed,” to use NCLB’s weirdly nihilist lingo? Seems like a pretty harsh sentence to hand down to teachers and their students, especially when most criminals in this country, both white-collar and otherwise, rarely seem to be punished for their actions. History shows us that nations often display irrational, self-destructive tendencies. The human sacrifice of the Aztecs comes to mind, as does the mania of the Nazis, and Nero fiddling while Rome burned. Is NCLB and what it says about America’s attitude toward education our clinical 21st century version of the Aztecs’ ritual sacrifice of their own children? When we judge schools not by the bestperforming segment but by the worst, it sends the message to students that it’s futile to try and better themselves. Even worse, it sends the message that the rest of us, Pontius Pilate-like, are washing our hands of any responsibility for raising future generations. Instead of “All means all,” No Child Left Behind’s true mantra seems to be: “Don’t bother.” As far as I can tell, that’s the exact opposite of what the fabled American Dream was supposed to be. w E-mail Jim at jim@connectsavannah.com

o one with or without children could argue against the obvious fact that schools across America need improvement. And here in Chatham County, Ga. -- technically speaking, one of the lowestranked districts in one of the lowest-ranked states in the union, the bottom of the bottom of the barrel -- it’s clear that our schools need massive improvement. But the way that public schools are held hostage to the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) is making an already bad situation worse. Contrary to its propaganda about raising every student to the same level, NCLB brings high performers down to the level of poor performers -- while making sure the poor performers are stigmatized for their lack of success. In short, NCLB is a recipe for failure, therefore it’s no surprise that it sees nothing but failure all around. Case in point: Last week the Savannah/ Chatham public schools released their annual progress report on how well local schools are reaching NCLB’s Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) standards. Needless to say, the press release was titled, “AYP results show steady progress.” (Hopefully this isn’t like the press releases from Iraq also claiming steady progress.) While incremental improvement was indeed made this past academic year -- 41 out of 48 schools made AYP, an increase of one -- the sad truth is that the SavannahChatham school system as a whole has never made AYP since NCLB’s inception in 2002. Superintendent Dr. Thomas Lockamy, not being one to sugar-coat things, said, “We still have far too many students who are not successfully graduating from high school. We still have far too many children reading below grade level. We still have too many schools that are failing to meet academic expectations. Until those factors are resolved we will not be celebrating.” I appreciate your pragmatism, Doc, but here’s the thing: You’ll never celebrate as long as you’re superintendent here, because those factors will never be resolved if NCLB has anything to do with it. NCLB is designed for you to fail, and fail miserably. The superintendent is to be commended for his oft-repeated mantra, “All means all,” which of course echoes NCLB’s raison d’etre. But the truth is that many schools not meeting AYP failed to do so not because of some systemic school-wide brain rot, as the propaganda is clearly intended to infer, but because a particular sub-group didn’t meet expectations, thereby bringing down everyone else with them. The books, in other words, are cooked. For example, the much-maligned Spencer Elementary missed AYP because

from recent Savannah/Chatham Police incident reports

A house divided

A dispute over the custody of a child turned violent July 2. Officers arrested Michael Angelo Mitchell, 26, for shooting two brothers, Harry and Robert Morgan, who are his cousins. Police responded to a home in the 1600 block of Legrande Street shortly after 7 p.m. on a report of shots fired. The suspect and the victims already had left the scene when officers arrived. Detectives arrived later and learned that Mitchell had intervened in a dispute over the custody of a 1-year-old child. The dispute escalated when Robert Morgan, 22, returned the child to its home. He is the child’s godfather, and he and the child’s mother began fighting over him taking the child without her consent. Harry Morgan, 26, was waiting for his brother in a car when he heard the shouting and went inside the house. Mitchell was already at the house and all three men began fighting. During the fight, Mitchell shot and wounded the Morgans. Both were taken to Memorial Health University Medical Center, where they were treated and released Mitchell surrendered to detectives July 3 at Central Precinct following an overnight search. He was charged with two counts of aggravated assault. • After a woman helped an employee who was down and out, he thanked her by stealing her furniture. The woman told police that she had employed the man at her restaurant a year ago for a couple of months. He then left to go to rehab for alcohol treatment. When he returned from rehab, the man was rehired at the restaurant. The owner also co-signed on the lease for his Gordon Street apartment and bought about $700 worth of furniture for him to use until he became financially stable. The woman told the man that when he was financially stable, she would reclaim the furniture. However, the man stopped showing up at work, so he was fired and told he had two weeks to move out of the apartment. He was told to leave the furniture when he left. However, when the woman inspected the apartment, she found that all of her furniture had been taken and that the apartment was empty. • A burglary occurred at a West River Street gift shop. An employee of the business arrived to open the store and found that the rear door was already unlocked, the alarm was turned off, and the money was missing from the cash register. She was positive the alarm was set and the door

locked the night before because she was the one who closed the business. She said she couldn’t identify any items other than the money that were missing from the store. She said only three people had keys to the store and knowledge of the alarm code. Shortly after a police officer arrived, the store’s manager came in. She also couldn’t identify any items other than the money that were missing and corroborated the employee’s account that only three people had access to the keys and alarm code. The manager said there should have been at least $1,200 in the cash drawer,. Forensics was requested, and a forensics officer was able to lift some fingerprints from the cash drawer and rear door. • A woman was attacked by her son at their 61st Street home. When police arrived, the woman told them her son is schizophrenic. She said he woke up that morning and started accusing her of taking his house and car keys. The man became even more upset and punched his mother in the back of the head and pushed her down on the floor. She said that he also punched her in the back of her left arm and then grabbed her cell phone out of her hand. He then began accusing his mother of trying to poison him and threw a bottle of plant food at her. She was able to leave the house and walk to a friend’s house, where she called police. Even though the man has a prescription for his illness, his mother said he hasn’t taken the medicine since December. When an officer checked the residence, the man had left and couldn’t be located. The officer saw evidence that a struggle had occurred in several rooms of the house. The telephone was knocked off the hook in the kitchen, several area rugs were strewn around in the living and dining areas, and there was a plastic bottle of plant food in the floor where the man had thrown it at his mother. w

Latest Religious Messages

In May, “more than 300 people” in Augusta, Ga. (according to the Augusta Chronicle), assembled at the Municipal Building explicitly to pray for the city, following weeks-long controversies on the city commission. In June, “more than 300 people” in Destin, Fla. (according to the Northwest Florida Daily News), assembled at the Destin Worship Center and raised their hands in joyful prayer for a rebound in the real estate market in the coastal communities in the Florida panhandle.

I hold this sign for you.

Servicemembers Legal Defense Network activists told reporters in June that at least 59 U.S.-trained Arabic speakers have been ejected from the military because they’re gay (and in each case despite being a native Englishspeaker who completed intense, expensive military language school). But a month before that, as symbolic of the government’s shortage of Arabic speakers, an official of the U.S.-funded Al Hurra Middle East television service admitted that it had recently, inadvertently, broadcast several pro-terrorist programs (including an hour-long tirade encouraging violence against Jews), attributing the error to the fact that no senior Al Hurra news manager speaks Arabic. Britain’s Home Office said in April that the country’s 1,500 most “disruptive” families could soon be moved into special communities by themselves, with 24-hour supervision, if they didn’t stop causing trouble (trouble which the Home Office figured has cost taxpayers the equivalent of more than $1 billion to deal with).

(1) In May, a jury in Weld County, Colo., declined to hold Kathleen Ensz accountable for leaving a flier containing her dog’s droppings on the doorstep of U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, apparently agreeing with Ensz that she was merely exercising free speech. (2) Jenny Bailey was elected mayor in Cambridge, England, in May, and her companion-partner Jennifer Liddle (a former Cambridge city council member) became the equivalent of “first lady”; both Bailey and Liddle were born males and became women as young adults.

Fine Points of the Law

Thomas Wimberly, 74, was arrested in July 2006 for stealing two hot dogs (value: $2.11, including tax) from a Quik Trip convenience store in Wichita, Kan. (though he said he had merely forgotten to pay). Because it was Wimberly’s third misdemeanor theft charge, Kansas law required that the count be upgraded to a felony. Wimberly could not immediately make bail, and in fact was incarcerated for 71 days before his trial (once being subject to a bond of $100,000), but prosecutors insisted on a trial. In April 2007, a jury of 12 people (reportedly angry at having been called to such an insignificant case) found Wimberly not guilty. (The penalty, according to state law, if he had been convicted, was 12 months’ probation.)

Crime Waves

(1) In May, a woman in Jacksonville, Ill., reported the theft of a bong from her house; she told police that she valued it because it belonged to her son, who is in prison, and it is all she had to remember him by. (2) The sheriff ’s office in Clyman, Wis., reported

that a man called 911 on April 21, alarmed that he had just paid $20 to a woman at a club after a lap dance and then realized that she was not the one who had danced for him.

Fetishes on Parade

(1) Police in Guelph, Ontario, were on the lookout in May for the man they thought responsible for three incidents in which someone approached a woman and asked that she kick him in the groin. A police spokesman said no crime had been committed, but that they are “concerned.” (2) In New York City in June, Frank Ranieri, 25, was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer in order to persuade teenage girls, for money, to let him stab them in the buttocks with a ball-point pen (which is the not-well-known paraphilia called piquerism).

Least Competent Criminals

In May, the inept Christopher Emmorey, 23, was sentenced to two years in prison for robbing a Peterborough, Ontario, bank, from which he had intended to take $2,000. However, the teller said she could only give him $200 and also must take out a $5 fee because Emmorey is not a regular customer. Emmorey stood stoically while she did the paperwork and then handed him $195, which he took and walked away (only to be arrested a short time later).

Update

The escalating value of the late Italian artist Piero Manzoni’s canned feces was chronicled in News of the Weird in 1993, 1998, 2002 and 2004, but now in June 2007 his former colleague Agostino Bonalumi told a reporter that the project had been a hoax and that Manzoni had merely filled the cans with plaster. Manzoni created 90 small tins, and collectors had paid thousands of dollars each (making his feces worth more per ounce than gold, including once, in 1993, paying $75,000 for a tin). (A spokesman for Britain’s Tate gallery, which once paid the equivalent of about $35,000 for one, said that the actual content of the art is beside the point.)

Undignified Deaths

(1) A 54-year-old man was killed while running to catch his bus in Greater Manchester, England, in May; he accidentally ran smack into a lamppost and fell into the street, where the bus ran over him. (2) Police in Los Angeles said in May that they believe a 21-year-old man deliberately parked his car on railroad tracks, with his girlfriend inside and a train approaching. However, the girlfriend survived (with serious injuries), and the man was killed by shrapnel from the collision as he was fleeing. w

University of Western Australia artists Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr blend art with science, extracting living cells from animals and growing them on top of biodegradable scaffolds so that when the scaffolds disappear, a living entity remains, in the shape of the scaffold. At the Israeli Center for Digital Art in Holon, Israel, in April, they unveiled “Victimless Leather,” or actual animal skin cells that grew into leather without harming an animal, but their previous work has included growing steak from lamb muscle cells and the preparation for growing wings on a pig (though, in the final stage of that project, they were turned down by the exhibitor, who was apparently grossed out).

Among the tax sweeteners offered by states to welcome relocating businesses is Texas’ easy-to-get farmland benefit. When the huge Fidelity Investments company bought a 300-acre plot near Dallas for a new office, it made sure to put 25 head of cattle on the land, which the Boston Herald found reduced its real-estate tax bill by about $360,000 a year under what it would pay without the cattle. Also, federal farm subsidies continue to be skewed, as well. In May, a coalition of Washington groups unveiled a searchable computer database listing agriculture subsidies by recipient, which revealed that such “farmers” as David Letterman and basketball player Scottie Pippen receive federal funds for incidental farm uses of their land.

Arctic Drying

Researchers say they have uncovered alarming evidence that high Arctic ponds, many of which have been permanent bodies of water for thousands of years, are entirely drying up during summer. Writing in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, two Canadian scientists say the ecological ramifications of these changes are likely to be severe and will be felt throughout the Arctic ecosystem. Marianne Douglas writes that the drying-up of the ancient Arctic ponds will affect waterfowl habitat and breeding grounds, the food source for creatures that feed on insects and the drinking water supply for animals. “These ponds are ... often hotspots of biodiversity and production for microorganisms, plants and animals in this otherwise extreme terrestrial environment," said Douglas.

Melted Shrine

A column of ice revered for centuries by the Hindu faithful in India’s Himalayan Kashmir mountains has melted before an annual pilgrimage to the frozen shrine began. The sacred ice formation, known as Shiva lingam, forms each year inside a cave at an elevation of 12,800 feet. It is one of Hinduism’s top religious sites. Thousands of pilgrims who made the grueling climb up slippery trails to worship the symbol of Shiva, the god of destruction, found only a stump of ice instead of the usual towering column. The holy stalagmite forms from water dripping from the cave’s roof and normally rises up to 8 feet in height during July. It melts to about a foot in height by September. A variety of factors from body heat to climate change are being blamed for this year’s early melting. w

The Jeff Beasley Band

The greater Savannah area has no shortage of R & B-based party bands. Whether it’s the gutbucket Delta houserockin’ of Bottles & Cans, the fiery Chicago and Memphis city blues of guitarist Eric Culberson, the stylized, dance-oriented shuffles of the Bluesonics, Deep Blue 3 (see below), or one of the handful of other similar acts which call our region home — there’s a little something for everyone’s tastes in this broad genre. Singer/songwriter Jeff Beasley writes and plays his own tunes both solo and with his band, but he’s wise enough to know that what most local audiences seem to appreciate most are songs they know and love. To that end, he’s spent the past few years working up a varied setlist that includes blues, boogie, country and rock standards drawn primarily from the ‘50s through the ‘70s. Jeff ’s laid-back drawl and freewheeling approach to vocal melodies combine with James Moody’s sax work to cast a decidedly “Big Easy” vibe over the whole proceedings, and his other bandmates (including upright bassist Mike Perry and drummer Billy Hoffman) lend the appropriate swing to vintage material by the likes of Sam Cooke, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Roy Orbison and Taj Mahal. Fri., 9 pm, Jazz’d Tapas Bar + Sat., 9 pm, Mansion on Forsyth Park.

Deep Blue 3

One of the finest straight-up electric blues combos for miles around, this versatile outfit serves up their own rock-solid takes on guitar-based ballads, rave-ups and weepers by the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan — as well as original material that holds up well alongside their selection of covers. Their lineup features a drummer who spent time on the road with a number of well-known C & W artists, and a former members of both the Bluesonics and The Flying Blues Biscuits. Despite the fact that they have not developed quite the name recognition as some other area blues groups, their sting-

ing lead guitar work and passionate vocals are well worth a closer look. Fri., 10 pm, Mercury Lounge.

2004 (after graduating from the Savannah Arts Academy and studying under local jazz hero Teddy Adams). He went on to earn a degree from the respected Oberlin Conservatory of Music and a Graduate degree from Queens College. Now in his mid-20s, he’s already recorded and played with everyone from jazz legends Roy Hargrove, Slide Hampton and Delfeayo Marsalis to hip-hop icon Common. He’s also gigged with The Ray Charles Orchestra, The Brooklyn Big Band, Gladys Knight and the Harlem Renaissance Orchestra. Anyone interested in seeing the kind of impressive and quality jazz talent that has emerging with increasing regularity from the Arts Academy’s highly-praised Skyelite Jazz Band would do well to check out Murchison’s hotly anticipated homecoming stand at this wonderful new venue dedicated to presenting fine jazz in an intimate, showcase environment.

Fans may have wondered just what young, successful pop songstress Michelle Branch was thinking when she benched her own solo career for a country side project with her friend (and touring backup singer) Jessica Harp — but it’s proven to be a savvy career move. Since then, The Wreckers (as they’re known) debut CD hit #14 on the Country Album charts and brought Branch a new fanbase and several catchy hit singles that seamlessly blend modern acoustic folk-pop (think Sheryl Crow) with traditional C & W. Opening for The Wreckers at the 52nd Annual installment of this major outdoor event will be up-and-coming indie country crooner Brannan Logan (hyping his own DIY release) and The Chuck Courtenay Band — which has quickly become one of the most visible and well-liked honkytonk and Southern rock party bands in the area.

‘We could still be singing these songs when we’re sixty’

Alt.country sensations Lucero return to Savannah

n March 29th of this year, Memphis, Tn.’s Lucero kicked off a headlining tour in support of their fifth and latest album Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers. Produced by Cracker frontman David Lowery, and featuring the soulful keyboard work of the infamous Memphis session man Rick Steff (who has occasionally been joining the band on the road when not backing up Cat Power), that record seemed to mark a turning point in this critically-acclaimed band’s career. The rough-hewn Americana group has spent the better part of the past decade writing, recording, releasing and touring behind a steady stream of beguiling albums that fit somewhere between Bruce Springsteen’s middle-period everyman rock, Steve Earle’s bleary-eyed internal journalism and the liquor-soaked laments of The Replacements (which makes sense, as producer Jim Dickinson —who helped craft some of that band’s finest work— was behind the boards for Lucero’s last album, 2005’s Nobody’s Darlings). As their profile increases, and they now regularly sell out dates at such prestigious venues as The Troubadour in L.A. and The Bowery Ballroom in NYC, the group continues to hit smaller rooms in secondary markets such as ours, and this will be their third visit to The Jinx. That’s fueled in part by the fact that Susanne Guest, who owns that club, is apt to describe the group as her favorite band. In fact, the night before this public gig, they’ll perform a rare private show for her own wedding reception. I caught up with guitarist Brian Venable by phone the morning after a two-night stand at The North Star Bar in Philly.

The first time I saw you at The Jinx, the last song of the night literally went on for something like twenty-five minutes because your singer Ben was so drunk he couldn’t make it through the first verse without screwing up. It went from sad to boring to hilarious and then back to sad again. Then boring and hilarious. You guys actually came back out at one point and tried to get him to stop. Brian Venable: Oh yeah, that happens. Not all the time, but it happens. That song “The War” is about Ben’s grandfather, and it has a tendency to get emotional. Savannah’s turning into a drinking town for us. What does that mean exactly? Brian Venable: It’s hard to explain. There’s some towns where you go and people want to welcome you with rounds of drinks. The Denvers, the Louisvilles, the Orlandos. Now add Savannah to that list. You just feel like, ‘Man, I’m gonna be drunk before I even step onstage!’ And sure enough, that’s what happens. It happened to me the first night we played England. You can tell that you’re drunk enough to watch a show but too drunk to play one. (Laughs) We play more if we get drunk. Our shows in those circumstances might not be better, but they are definitely longer! (Laughs) You just don’t want to quit playing, even though you probably should. Ben is especially bad about that. He’s like, “I’m gonna finish this song, and I don’t care if it takes all night.” In Boston on the last night of the last tour, without realizing it, everybody bought each other bottles of whiskey, and we all got so drunk. Ben actually threw up onstage and then he tried continued on page 18

to play “The War,” and he was about fifteen minutes’ into it when the soundman pulled the plug on the PA. Ben got pissed, smashed his guitar and ran off the stage. Do you worry at all about the band’s rep? Brian Venable: Sometimes we’re staring at each other playing the wrong thing. The problem is you’re still sorta sober and you think, “Hey, this is a spectacle.” But ninety percent of the crowd is as drunk as we are! I figure most people who don’t drink as much as us see eighty minutes of the gig and go home thinking, “I wonder how long they played after I left.” They see us at our best, playing a great show, and miss the part where the alcohol kicks in. There’s a moment when things start to come apart, but generally the audience is hammered too and they say it’s the best show they’ve ever seen. I guess that’s a long way of saying we do have a rep as a drinking band. You just completed a two-week tour of Spain. What about Americana appeals so much to Europeans? Brian Venable: I don’t really know. It’s weird. We were pulling in between a hundred and two hundred people each night in Spain, and it would just be folks who’d heard of us through Cracker or Jim Dickinson. Then we did four days in London, and it was almost exclusively young BMX-riding punk rock kids. Then we went to Italy, and it was almost exclusively twenty-eight to fortyeight-year-old men wearing boot cut jeans and checkered shirts who dig Springsteen. They loved us every bit as much as the kids, but they didn’t try to burn the place down! We’re going back to do a tour of the whole U.K. in November. Cracker’s playing here this Wednesday, and your last album was produced by their singer David Lowery. When you listen back to that record, what stands out to you as something he brought to the table artistically that wouldn’t be there otherwise? Brian Venable: I think we don’t need a producer as much as a mediator. Even with Jim Dickinson, we go in there pretty much knowing what we want to do. We don’t work with the kind of producers who tell us how to completely rewrite our songs, or act like they’re in charge of the band. We wanted to go away from Memphis for a few weeks and concentrate. David had this amazing threestory studio complex with everything you’d need to live there. You basically didn’t have to leave the building if you didn’t want to. As far as his production style goes, he’d just sit there playing with the internet while we’re recording and it looks like he’s not paying attention. You start thinking, man, I gotta be a producer. That’s good money for nothing! Then the song would end and he’d hum the whole thing back to us and offer all kinds of solid suggestions to make it better. Turns out he was paying a whole lot of attention. When everyone is arguing about their parts,

you need that fifth voice of someone not in the band that everyone can listen to and do what they say. Alan the engineer was as much a part of producing the record as David. They were both bouncing ideas off one another, helping the creative process. Lowery’s a hero to many because he’s been around for decades and stayed fairly true to his indie roots. Does Lucero have the potential to craft that sort of a career for itself? Brian Venable: We’re lucky in a way, because we were a bit older than most when we started the band. Our songs aren’t based around some rash, bold statement we made in our youth that we’ll regret later. We could still be singing these songs when we’re sixty. It’s like Crosby Stills Nash & Young or any of those old guys playing hippie rock. We might play a lot slower when we get older, but it’ll still translate well. We don’t have to be a balls-out hard rock band getting beer thrown on us! We can just play the songs in an “age appropriate” fashion. You see these metal or hardcore bands trying to change their style late in their careers, but it’s really hard to write something when you’re seventeen that you can sing with a straight face forever. It’s like The Who: “I hope I die before I get old.” Well, you are old, you know? So, do you guys play many weddings?

Brian Venable: I’m pretty sure we’ve played a total of four. We’re not what I’d call the best choice for a wedding band, in that we’ve got a lot of songs about cheating and leaving! However, someone told me that Susanne was having a Star Wars themed wedding, and I hope that’s true. That’ll make it all worth it! The last three weeks of this tour have been so crazy. I got a tattoo from Mat Hoffman, who’s a BMX racing legend. He’s like the Tony Hawk of that sport. He’s broken every bone in his body twice and is just a ridiculously gnarly dude. Getting to meet him was just as exciting as getting to meet Dinosaur Jr when we co-headlined a bill with them in Denver, or seeing the Bad Brains when they closed out a festival we just played. I’m hanging with Mat and he’s dancing at our show. Then I’m in a hotel room and he’s giving me a tattoo! Then, I’m right next to a 2,000-person mosh circle in front of (Bad Brains frontman) H.R. To be able to wrap that up with a Star Wars wedding might go down as the most amazing series of life experiences I’ve had in the past several years. Those will be the four stories I’ll tell for the next decade, and they will have all happened in the past three weeks. w Lucero play The Jinx Saturday night with openers American Gun. The 21+ show starts at 11 pm. $12 advance tickets are on sale now at the club. For more info on Lucero, see: www.luceromusic.com

Jack, get back -- Cultural Arts Theatre brings Footloose to the Lucas

I

t’s impossible to get through Footloose without wanting to jump out of your seat and just get up and dance. The high energy music and dance numbers are irresistable. Footloose started out as a wildly popular 1984 movie that starred Kevin Bacon. In 1998, Footloose was adapted for the stage. The score by Tom Snow was nominated for both an Oscar and a Tony, and there is additional music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman. The City of Savannah’s Cultural Arts Theatre will present Footloose, the Musical beginning July 13 at the Lucas Theatre for the Arts. Directed by D.J. Queenan, it features Ryan Brown in the lead role. The story line concerns Ren, a big-city boy from Chicago who frequents nightclubs so he can dance. When his mother informs him they are moving to a small town named Beaumont, Ren is understandably upset. He must adjust to a new high school and make new friends. Even worse, Beaumont is an extremely conservative town that has banned - gasp! - dancing. Ren and his mother begin their stay in Beaumont by attending church, which brings them into contact with the Rev. Shaw Moore, who led the move to ban dancing out of anger at his own son’s death in a car crash. But it’s the good reverend’s rebellious daughter, Ariel, who catches Ren’s eye. With the help of Ariel, his new friend Willard and

Willard’s girlfriend, Rusty, Ren decides to organize a big school dance to introduce the teens of Beaumont to the joys of dancing. Of course, there are many obstacles to overcome before this actually happens, but it’s not exactly giving the plot away to say that the musical ends with a huge dance party number. Brown has been involved in theater since the third grade. He auditioned for Footloose because he thought it would be a good experience. “I wasn’t able to go to the first audition, so I went to a callback,” Brown says. “I auditioned just to see what I could get. A few days later, D.J. called and told me I was Ren.” A senior at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Brown has a double major in performing arts and sound design. “It’s something I’ve always done since I was young,” he says. “I’ve always worked in sound design on some level.” Playing Ren is quite an experience, Brown says. “It’s very fun, but it’s also very demanding,” he says. “It seemed like a lot of work going into it, but after rehearsing, I feel I’m ready.” The show will be a treat for audiences, Brown says. “It’s going to be a very good show,” he says. “A lot of time and effort have gone into it. It’s all about having a good time and having fun.”

Connect also caught up with director D.J. Queenan for an interview. Is the musical version of Footloose exactly the same as the film it’s based on? If there are differences, what are they? D.J. Queenan: Even though Footloose, the Musical is based on the original film, there are many differences. The most outstanding being that the film was not a story told in song the way a typical piece of musical theatre is. What the composers chose to do was arrange the story so the main characters could sing the music that was used as the movie’s back-up score. How many are in the cast? D.J. Queenan: There are 43 actors, singers and dancers in this production of Footloose. The large cast helps tell the story of the town of Beaumont, its people (young and old) and the conflict that confronts them all. How old are the cast members? D.J. Queenan: This cast contains actors who range in age from 14 to 58! The great joy of such diversity in age is that adults get to play adults and the young people get to play themselves! Are there other challenges in staging this musical? D.J. Queenan: Often when a film is made of a play, the film makers take the opportunity to expand the locations in which the action takes place. Plays often use less locations to make the staging clean. In the case, the film had already established the great variety of

locations so the play had to follow suit. It wasn’t easy! Why was Footloose chosen? D.J. Queenan: I always try to pick plays that come with their own energy. Every time I mentioned that I was thinking of doing Footloose, people would be thrilled. I also like the summer show to appeal to young and old alike. This play does just that.

The horror...

the horror

Uneven but fun, the locally-shot indie slasher flick Side Sho premieres

A

cynic might say that if a low-budget, straight-to-DVD slasher flick is the best Savannah could do over the past few years to attract the film industry, we’re in pretty sad shape. And Side Sho -- filmed mostly in Walthourville but relying on a Savannah-centric cast and crew -- is indeed that: a low-budget ($500,000), straight-to-DVD (by plan) slasher flick (lots of slashing going on). But in this sterile era of all-CGI all-the-time, I have to say it’s refreshing -- if anything this gore-splattered could be called refreshing -- to see a film that’s A) not a sequel, B) not outsourced to an effects lab, and C) not about frickin’ penguins. Make no mistake, despite its frequent forays into camp, Side Sho is first and foremost a good old-fashioned genre film: Minivan full of travelers finds itself in the rural South, minivan breaks down, travelers find themselves in deep doo-doo, etc. As evidenced by an almost-final cut of the film at last week’s local premiere at the Savannah Theatre, writer/producer Frank Fox delves deep into the compendium of horror film cliches for this one: • Enclave of inbred Southerners, check; • Dorky, clueless dad, check; • Smarmy soccer mom, check; • Screaming babes in tight clothes, check; • Much running of said babes through dark forest while screaming, check; • Death by device run by two-stroke internal combustion engine, in this case a boat propeller, check; • Various and sundry other imaginative ways to sever major arteries, check; • And chilling, charismatic villain that you secretly root for (the Side Sho barker played by local actor J.R. Reynolds), check. Indeed, the only slasher flick cliche missing is the black guy who gets killed in the first 20 minutes. Otherwise, it’s all here. While the script won’t win any Best Screenplay awards anytime soon, I have to say this is one of the best-storyboarded and best-shot half-million dollar films you’ll see. For this credit must go both to director Mike D’Anna and director of photography Lou Chanatry, D.P. on Frankenfish. The camera work is active but not distracting, inventive but not gimmicky. While at times the lighting is too clever by half -- are so many characters shot in deep shadow to enhance suspense or because their makeup isn’t HD-ready? -- still,

you have to say that for its low budget, this is an exceptionally well-shot and well-edited film. Side Sho is in a sense one filmmaker’s ode to analog. No computer effects are used, so if you pay attention you can spot the point at which the film was edited to introduce a gory effect. This will either annoy the crap out of you or bring a smile to your face in memory of how all filmmakers had to practice their craft in the pre-PC age. If there’s one serious complaint I have, it’s the sound. The levels vary wildly, with half the dialogue muffled and the other half harshly overdriven. Either way, it’s a major distraction, and I hope the rumor’s true that D’Anna is taking Side Sho through one last run of post-production to tweak it. Savannah residents will take delight in the performances of several locals, including the previously mentioned Reynolds, the always-engaging Renee DeRossette (who also did some animal wrangling on the film), and Gene Witham, who turns in a savvy performance as Reynolds’ hilariously disgruntled henchman. Other talents of note include the perfectly cast John David Hart as the Dorky Dad. His daughter is played by Toni Robider, bikini model and one-time Hooters girl who transcends her role as eye-candy to show a real talent for cinematic acting. And Hunter Ballard displays a remarkable onscreen calm as the young son. w For more info go to luckykittyproductions.com

License to Wed  Mandy Moore has managed to costar in the two worst films of 2007 (thus far), yet let’s not be in a hurry to pick up those stones and torches. Truth be told, Moore is turning out to be a welcome screen presence -- far better than most recent singers-turned-actors -- and she’s hardly to blame for either the rancid Because I Said So or the toxic-waste comedy License to Wed. The heir presumptive to last summer’s You, Me and Dupree, this new film, offensive in its idiocy, similarly places loathsome characters in absurd situations that are meant to give off a funky black-comedy vibe yet instead reek only of desperation as well as the limitations of comically challenged minds. Under the disinterested supervision of director Ken Kwapis, four writers jerry-rig a premise that finds newly engaged couple Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and Sadie Jones (Moore) forced to pass a marriage preparation course supervised by the Jones family’s longtime minister, Reverend Frank (Robin Williams). Along the way, Reverend Frank, aided by his young apprentice (Josh Flitter, as annoying here as he was in Nancy Drew), bugs the couple’s bedroom, embarrasses Ben in front of his future in-laws, and drives Sadie away from her fiance. Sharp scripting could have given Frank the balance required to make him an apt comic foil, but here he’s simply creepy, a problem expounded by the casting of Robin Williams. Williams is in his manic, whoring mode here, an approach well past its expiration date in terms of actually resembling anything funny or topical. (One bit finds Williams making a joke about O.J. Simpson; heck, why not cracks about the Pentagon Papers or Rosie the Riveter or even the invention of the light bulb?) Williams has made so many one-star comedies that it’s impossible to keep count at this point. But rest assured that there’s a multiplex in hell that screens them on a perpetual loop.

Live Free or Die Hard 1/2

For whatever reason -- fat paycheck, wavering career, poor choice of available roles -- Bruce Willis has elected to return to his signature role as John McClane, and the end result is better than most years-afterthe-fact sequels (Rocky Balboa, The Evening Star, Crocodile Dundee In Los Angeles). The twist here is that aging detective McClane, an old-fashioned guy used to 20th century modes of expression and ideas, finds himself battling cyber-terrorists who threaten to shut down the entire United States with a few strokes of a keyboard. The movie’s billing itself as the story of an “analog” cop living in a “digital” age, and we all know what that means. No mouse pads or monitors for our hero; instead, it’s all flying fists, rapid-

fire weaponry and explosions. Lots of explosions. Yet even director Len Wiseman and scripter Mark Bomback don’t have complete faith in the cop’s old-fashioned heroics since they saddle him with a sidekick who’s a genius when it comes to computers. Matt Farrell (Justin Long, the “Mac” guy in those ubiquitous Apple commercials) is a Neoinspired hacker who inadvertently helps the villain (an effective Timothy Olyphant) and his posse carry out their master plans. Marked for termination, Matt is only able to escape his would-be assassins with McClane’s help. An overlong running time allows matters to occasionally become stale (the blueprint calls for our protagonists to evade, fight, escape, repeat), although Willis does his part by tossing out those patented McClane quips with aplomb. And while there’s no denying that the picture is packed

with memorable action sequences, the film often collapses into a heap of silliness, with McClane surviving some encounters that would tax all sorts of leaps of logic.

Sicko1/2

As with past works by this controversial filmmaker, Michael Moore proves himself to be more a professor with some fanciful ways of explaining the matter at hand than a documentarian in the strictest sense of the term: He often places himself at the center of the spotlight, and he lets details fall by the wayside in his rush to accentuate the greater truth. Sicko, Moore’s take on the American health care crisis, is no different: One can quibble about the presentation or the softpedaling of certain points, but there’s no continued on page 32

doubt that Moore’s heart is in the right place, or that, in a just world, his powerful picture would serve as an agent for change. Moore employs his latest film as a bludgeoning tool against insidious insurance companies and the corrupt politicians who let them get away with murder -- often literally. Moore doesn’t focus on the nation’s uninsured; instead, he centers on ordinary folks who do carry insurance yet are still denied basic rights by those more concerned with lining their own pockets than helping out their fellow Americans. Thus, we see how a grieving mother loses her baby daughter because her HMO forces her to seek help not at the closest hospital but at one further away. We gasp at how one man is turned down for an operation, only to result in his death several months later. We witness how a laborer who has accidentally cut off two of his fingers is told that, because of financial considerations, he has to decide which finger he wants to keep and which digit he can live without. And so on. Not surprisingly, Moore’s solution on how to wrest this nation away from the hands of the insurance companies, lobbyists and politicians is to provide universal health care for everyone. Moore then traces, in often amusing fashion, how the Republicans gasp at such a notion, calling it “socialized medicine” and linking it back to the Communists. Yet Moore also saves some barbs for Hillary Clinton, who once tried to tackle the health care issue (yet was beaten down by GOP misogynists like Newt Gingrich) but is now only too happy to accept campaign contributions from the health industry lobby. And in a brilliant bit, Moore wonders why the right-wing is so adamant against “socialized medicine” when we already have other “socialized” advantages (fire department, schools, libraries, etc.).

Ratatouille 1/2

Cinema has given us so many marvelous movies set around the kitchen that it’s easy to lose count among the tantalizing dishes laid out on display. But onto a long list that includes Babette’s Feast, Eat Drink Man Woman, and Like Water for Chocolate, I never expected to add an animated yarn about a culinary rat. Ratatouille is the latest winner from Pixar, the animation out-

fit whose win-loss ratio has still managed to equal that of the ‘72 Miami Dolphins. Here, a dreamy rat who tries to get along with his more conventional family while also attempting the impossible (and the taboo) by forging a friendship with a human. The rat is Remy (voiced by Patton Oswalt), whose skills in the kitchen are exemplary, and the human is Linguini (Lou Romano), a skinny lad who possesses none of his late father’s superb culinary abilities. Since restaurant kitchens aren’t exactly rodent-friendly, and since circumstances force the singularly untalented Linguini to pass himself off as a master chef, the pair pool their resources to return a once-great Paris eatery, now struggling following the publication of a disastrous review by food critic Anton Ego (Peter O’Toole), back to its lofty position as one of France’s finest. As always seems to be the case with Pixar, the animation in Ratatouille far surpasses that of CGI imagery from competing studios, with characters emerging as fully formed, three-dimensional players (or as three-dimensional as cartoon characters can get). The attention to detail is startling, and there are some angles that may be commonplace in live-action features but are rarely attempted in toon flicks (I especially love the pen dropping).

Transformers 

A movie about robots that turn into cars (and trucks and tanks and airplanes) would seem to have a more limited fan base than many other blockbuster wanna-bes, and the presence of Michael Bay (Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) as director certainly puts critics on alert. Yet perhaps the secret ingredient here is in the producing credits. Instead of Bay’s usual partner in crime, Jerry Bruckheimer, it’s Steven Spielberg who snags an executive producer citation, so it can’t be a coincidence that in its finest moments -- most contained within the first half of this 145minute yarn -- this picture harkens back to the sort of filmic roller coaster rides that Spielberg often built during the 80s. What makes the initial hour-and-change so enjoyable is the expository material that former Alias scripters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman bring to the table. After quickly explaining that two sets of intergalactic robots -- the heroic Autobots and the nefari-

ous Decepticons -- have brought their battle the bridesmaid for her upcoming marto our planet, we’re introduced to variriage-of-convenience.

when God (returning Morgan Freeman) appears and instructs him to build an ark.

1408 1/2

A Mighty Heart 

Based on Mariane Pearl’s book A Mighty Heart: The Brave Life and Death of My Husband Danny Pearl, the film finds Angelina Jolie delivering a remarkably restrained performance as Mariane, whose husband (played by Dan Futterman), a Wall Street Journal reporter, is kidnapped while the pair are living in Pakistan in 2002. Six months pregnant, Mariane tries to stay optimistic in the face of this grim situation, using her own sources to track him down while also relying heavily on the aid of the Pakistani anti-terrorism unit, American diplomats and the FBI. In fact, her outer fortitude is occasionally misinterpreted as a lack of concern (i.e. the Lindy “The dingo’s got my baby” Chamberlain syndrome), which leads some to foolishly question her devotion to her husband. But all that matters to Mariane is having her spouse returned to her, and, given Hollywood’s propensity for promoting American know-how as well as its can-do attitude, it’s perhaps the movie’s most surprising development that the efforts of the Pakistanis, not the U.S. law officials, go the furthest toward cracking the case.

Ocean’s Thirteen  Isn’t it accepted -- in fact, isn’t it pretty much gospel -- that the third picture in any given trilogy is when the series has totally lost it, when the filmmakers have been completely replaced by pimps and profiteers? So how is it possible that Ocean’s Thirteen has emerged as the best of this franchise?

Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer 

It remains a mystery how the 2005 superhero yarn Fantastic Four grossed $154 million stateside, considering that most of its special effects were on the level of a 6-yearold floating his plastic boat in the bathtub.

This time effects are a vast improvement. Would that the rest of this picture inspired similar admiration. Instead, FF2 suffers from the same ailments that made the original such a drag: ham-fisted direction, embarrassing acting, stilted dialogue and the fumbling of a classic villain. There are some mildly interesting conflicts, not only between the heroes and their adversaries but also among the team members themselves: group leader Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic (Ioan Gruffudd), fiancee Sue Storm/Invisible Woman (Jessica Alba), Reed’s best friend Ben Grimm/The Thing (Michael Chiklis) and Sue’s kid brother Johnny Storm/ Human Torch (Chris Evans). Personal issues get thrust onto the backburner, though, once the Silver Surfer (voiced by Laurence Fishburne) flies onto the scene with the intention of destroying the planet.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End  Thirty-three minutes. Yes, it takes 33 minutes into the 168-minute Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End before Johnny Depp even makes an appearance. Considering he’s this franchise’s MVP, that’s a dicey move on the part of the filmmakers; then again, everything about this second sequel operates with a go-for-broke mentality. Pirates 3 is overblown, overstuffed and overthe-top. It’s also entertaining and sometimes

even exciting, which right there marks it as an improvement over last summer’s Dead Man’s Chest.

Knocked Up 

Like There’s Something About Mary, director Judd Apatow’s The 40-Year-Old Virgin was unique in that it successfully mixed raunch with romance. Knocked Up, which reunites Apatow with Virgin co-star Seth Rogen, attempts a similar balancing act, only it falls a tad short. There’s a sweet love story on view here as well, only because it’s more rushed it ultimately plays second string to the picture’s comedy quota. Fortunately, on that front, the movie’s an unqualified hit. Rogen plays Ben Stone, a slacker who enjoys reefer and hanging out with his equally unambitious roommates. One night at a nightclub, he meets Alison (Katherine Heigl), who’s out celebrating her promotion at E! Entertainment Television. Before morning arrives, the pair will have engaged in a onenight stand. Alison learns she’s pregnant,

and she decides that she and Ben should attempt to make their relationship work for the sake of the baby.

Spider-Man 3

The appeal of Spider-Man has always reached far beyond the comic book crowd: He’s become an icon of enormous proportions. With this in mind, director Sam Raimi and his scripters have fashioned three Spider-Man flicks that have all managed to remain true to the spirit -- if not always the letter -- of the comic series. None have reached the giddy heights of, say, 1978’s Superman or 2005’s Batman Begins, but they have all achieved what they set out to do: provide solid entertainment. w

A fairly effective creepshow in which our protagonist only has to worry about a haunted room. But what a room! Hack writer Mike Enslin (an excellent John Cusack) has built a career penning guide books on supposedly haunted locales across America, and after years of doing so, he realizes, with the same level of smugness as Hilary Swank’s mythbuster in The Reaping, that there are no such things as ghosts and goblins and gremlins and golems. So when he receives a postcard from the Dolphin Hotel in New York telling him not to enter the establishment’s room 1408, he scoffs at the warning but elects to check it out anyway. His arrival is met with resistance by Gerald Olin (Samuel L. Jackson), the hotel manager. At first, the spooky proceedings are kept on a low-key simmer. But scripters Matt Greenberg, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski don’t just adapt Stephen King’s short story; they stick a helium needle into it and expand it to grotesque proportions.

| Free Will Astrology by Rob Brezsny

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Among the Yanyuwa Aboriginal people who live along the coast of Australia’s Northern Territory, the word for “fat” is *nalu-ngiliny.* It doesn’t merely refer to the greasy stuff that grows naturally under the skin of animal bodies. It’s also a metaphysical term for vitality. Anything that’s rich in *nalungiliny* is healthy. A certain landscape may be considered fat, for instance, which means that it’s fertile and sacred. When acacia flowers bloom each year, it’s a sign that sea turtles and the marine mammals known as dugongs, favorite foods of the Yanyuwa, are “fat” and ready to be hunted. Your assignment in the coming week is to identify the things in your life that are *nalungiliny,* and to give them the honor, gratitude, and nurturing they deserve. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Don’t cross a bridge until you come to it,” advises the old adage. But is that really a good idea? The fact is that the world belongs to people who have crossed bridges in their imaginations long before those bridges existed. Let that be your guiding thought in the coming weeks, Taurus. Start visualizing, contemplating, and building in your mind’s eye a certain bridge you want to make abundant use of in 2008. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The German word *selig* can mean both “ecstatic” or “blessed.” It implies that profound bliss can be a divine gift; that deep pleasure may generate or come from spiritual inspiration. The English language doesn’t have a term comparable to *selig,* maybe because our culture regards ecstasy with suspicion. Religious people tend to believe that the blessed are those who are good and kind, certainly not those who are skilled at cultivating ecstatic states. People who worship rationality, on the other hand, like intellectuals and scientists, often think of ecstasy as at best an irrelevant state, and at worst a non-productive or deluded indulgence. Personally, I’m in alignment with the values embodied by the word *selig.* It happens to be your

specialty this week. CANCER (June 21-July 22): To celebrate your ramble through the most wildly independent phase of your astrological cycle, I’m offering you three inspirational quotes. The first is from poet e.e. cummings: “To be nobody but yourself in a world that is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle that any human being can fight.” Your second shot of motivation is from Clarissa Pinkola Estes: “If you have ever been called defiant, incorrigible, forward, cunning, insurgent, unruly, or rebellious, you’re on the right track. If you have never been called these things, there is yet time.” Lastly, here’s a Hindu proverb: “There is nothing noble in being superior to some other person. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): What is the meaning of life? Is there such a thing as free will? Why is there something rather than nothing? If God exists, why does he or she seem to be invisible? Dear Leo, questions like those I just asked are completely irrelevant to you right now. To ponder them for even a few minutes would be a waste of time. Here, on the other hand, are the kinds of questions that will lead you in the direction you need to go. What is your greatest fear and what can you do to diminish it? How could you become smarter about the way you love? What pose would it be a big relief for you to drop? Which of your wounds is primed for a dramatic healing, and what’s the best way to begin the cure? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “The things that can destroy us,” said Gandhi, “are politics without principle; pleasure without conscience; wealth without work; knowledge without character; business without morality; science without humanity; and worship without sacrifice.” You Virgos are better than most signs at avoiding six of those dangers. The one you’re most prone to get tripped up by is knowledge without character. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to check in with yourself to see if you’re guilty of that flaw, and then, if

you find a shortfall, take steps to correct it. Make sure that you’re not only being smart, but also wise.

Go someplace you’ve never been and do things you’ve never done. Third-

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s Welcome Your Challenges with Open Arms Week. To take maximum advantage of this festive occasion, practice being grateful for your interesting difficulties; remind yourself of how much smarter and stronger they can make you. Celebrate the riddles and dilemmas that have helped and will continue to help transform you into such a uniquely gorgeous creature. Now study these words of wisdom from playwright Theodore Rubin: “The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem.”

best: Spend an entire day being naked.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I asked my readers to make a prediction about what age they’ll be when they finally know exactly who they are. “I hope I NEVER completely know who I am!” wrote Bridjet. “I love discovering new things about myself, and to change as everything else around me changes. It is one of the most beautifully thrilling things about life.” If you share that perspective, Scorpio, the coming days should be pretty fun. You’re likely to become dramatically more mysterious to yourself. You’ll be evolving, even mutating, in ways that may amaze you, and you’ll be coming face to face with hidden aspects of yourself. Let the confounding, enriching expansion begin! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): After studying the astrological omens and consulting with an elite panel of 20 village idiots, my team of horoscope experts has determined that at least once in the coming week you would be wise to wander around town with no particular goal, responding with innocent enthusiasm and hungry curiosity to whatever scenarios you happen to stumble upon, pleased to be educated by the random flow of stimuli that come your way. If you don’t have the courage or leisure to pull that off, here’s the second-best strategy:

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A misguided swan became infatuated with a pedal boat at a pond in Hamburg, Germany. Apparently mistaking it for his soul mate, the devoted bird guarded the boat jealously and rarely left its side. The human owner of the boat found it amusing at first, but later regarded it as a nuisance, since the enamored swan chased away all potential renters of the vehicle. I propose to make this poignant creature your anti-role model in the coming weeks, Capricorn. May he inspire you to free yourself of all delusions you have entertained over the years about the kind of intimate ally you need in order to be happy. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “I think we ought to read only books that bite and sting us,” wrote Franz Kafka in *The Blue Octavo Notebooks.* “If the book does not shake us awake like a blow to the skull, why bother reading it in the first place?” I suggest you find at least one such book to help you get the most of the current cosmic configurations, Aquarius. More than that, I encourage you to find people and experiences and dreams that have a similar effect. It’s that phase of your cycle when you can thrive on fertile uproar. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his love and his religion,” wrote novelist James Michener. Your assignment in the coming week, Pisces, is to get at least three steps closer to being such a master. Use all your ingenuity and imagination to figure out how to bring the full force of your primal lust for life into every single thing you do, even activities that other people might regard as trivial or difficult or low-status. w
