Alabama author writes exposé on racial prejudice Drug Conspiracy: We Only Want the Blacks by Richard “Squirrel” Thomas; Crescendo Media Works, 2011; 175 pages; $17.95

By Lance Hicks Special to The Star

As a result of the truth’s tendency to weave in and out of human perception at a tragically unpredictable pace, I consider it improper to judge a work of nonfiction by its author’s ability to maintain a tight and navigable story structure. Also, because of the genre’s tendency to feature hollow-voiced histories of various statutes and ordinances, I don’t expect to be treated to elegant and inventive prose when reading a book-length exploration of the criminal justice system. Having said that, I must admit that I am inclined to pardon first-

time author and Alabama native Richard “Squirrel” Thomas for producing Drug Conspiracy: We Only Want the Blacks, an exposé on racial prejudice in the enforcement of American drug laws that loses its poignant message in a bitter grudge match with its author’s deficiency as a writer. Thomas kindly tips his reader off to the fact that he is, foremost, an observer/victim and is only a writer by necessity when he indicates early on in his book that he has always had “trouble with English” and that he never intends to write another book. The admission by Thomas comes from his

knowledge of how Drug Conspiracy fulfills the sole purpose of his writing since it serves as both a tell-all autobiography and an outlet through which he can give voice to his propositions on how to repair the corrupt American legal system. By first divulging the details of his former life as a celebrated math teacher and successful night club owner in Montgomery, Thomas builds a plausible case on how his gambling addiction and workaholic disposition positioned him as a perfect pawn to be manipulated by bureaucrats while under false drug-related charges. Although the account of how federal agents robbed and wrongfully jailed Thomas

makes up the bulk of this thin book, the author breaks up his deadpan confessional with a series of four-page interludes that discuss profit-driven prison policies, the phony war on drugs and everything in-between. It is the aforementioned portions of the book that come close to rectifying the less-palatable qualities of Thomas’s prose, such as his artless fumbling from one topic to another without a logical path for the reader to follow between each grammatically butchered sentence. However, his expertly tuned political and cultural readings of America are cut short by the sheer brevity of his lessons, a failing that will remind readers less of their government’s misdeeds and more of the value of a ghost writer.

simon Continued from Page 4 without losing the interest of the audience proved to be key as well. “It’s a really fine balance, I think, of finding the pace and finding the physicality of the characters,” Peck says. Peck, a Michigan native who has been at JSU since August, hasn’t directed in “close to 20 years,” she says. During her past career as a stage manager, she says she learned a lot from watching other directors in different productions, and felt that Neil Simon seemed both really appropriate and “something I knew I was going to have fun with.” She chose this play because of her love for both the play and Simon’s work as a whole. “The comedy is so honest,” she says. “It’s always coming from these

really genuine characters. His characters are so believable and true to life.” Although each cast member is “so good in their own ways,” brothers Stanley and Eugene Jerome, played by Maurice Winsell and Joshua Cody Hunt, respectively, really make a mark. On Hunt, Peck “… saw something in him that I thought would work” and chose to take a gamble by bringing him into a star spot. “He’s … attacked the role with so much enthusiasm” and has really understood the character, she says. Winsell isn’t a drama major, but “he’s so natural on stage and so charismatic” that you would assume he was, she says. “It’s made it really fun,” Peck says. “I’m really excited about everyone for different reasons.” For newcomers to the work of Simon, also known for The Odd Couple and The Goodbye Girl, expect to

be on a rollercoaster of both excitement and sorrow. “It will be more entertaining than anything,” Peck says. She hopes her love for the play has translated well into this production. “The play has done so much of the work for us,” she said. “All I can do is just hope that we did it well.” Broadway Bound will run May tonight and Saturday at 7 p.m. and May 15 at 2 p.m. at the Ernest Stone Performing Arts Center.

AC/DC say reality shows poor path to success By Hilary Fox Associated Press

LONDON — Unlike Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, you won’t find members of AC/DC on the panel of a singing contest: They’re not exactly fans of the reality show route to success. “There’s only one way to do it,” said lead vocalist Brian Johnson. “You get on the stage, you learn your trade and you get out and play in front of people. You serve your apprenticeship just like anybody else.” Johnson added: “The shortcut ways leads to tears at the end of the day. It’s all hype. And it’s not fair on the kids to make them famous one week and then nobodies the next. It’s just not right.” Johnson and Angus Young — who jokingly asked if Tyler was “hanging people or something” when told of Tyler’s role as a judge on American Idol — reflected on the path to success last week in London before the premiere of their latest DVD, Live At River Plate. It features performances from Argentina, where the band — which also includes Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams and Phil Rudd — performed to an impressive crowd of 70,000 fans each show for three nights last December. As part of one of the biggest and most enduring bands in the world, Young and Johnson believe that early struggles got them to where they are today. Johnson said he started his singing career in British youth clubs in front of 30 people. And he took buses to get there. It’s a far cry from the large-scale concerts, which were filmed in Buenos Aires and marked AC/DC’s return to the country after a 13-year absence. Unlike other concert films by the likes of U2 and Justin Bieber, Live at River Plate wasn’t shot in 3-D. Instead, the band concentrated on getting 32 HD cameras into every conceivable angle they could imagine. “Who wants to see my nose in 3-D? They’ll be running out the cinema,” Johnson, 63, laughed. As for new material, there’s no firm news on the follow up to 2008’s Black Ice just yet. The album, which was the band’s first in eight years, sold millions around the globe. There are no plans to retire either. “I cannot think of anything as exciting,” said Johnson. “I can’t think of anything more that makes you feel more alive than that. It really does. You know you’re alive when you’re up there. Anything else would be second rate.” AC/DC Live at River Plate, is out this week.

Beastie Boys return older and sillier By Derrik J. Lang Associated Press

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — On a wind-swept balcony at the posh Chateau Marmont hotel, Michael “Mike D” Diamond, onethird of the legendary hiphop trio the Beastie Boys, is recounting to Adam “Ad-Rock” Horowitz what happened at a party that he departed early the night before. Among the recollections is that the DJ spun “Jolene.” “He killed it,” Diamond recalls. “That’s a great song though. Dolly Partner is a great songwriter.” “Yeah,” Horowitz replies without missing a beat. “Dolly Partner’s penned like over 1,000 songs.” When asked if the pair are intentionally flubbing the country icon’s name, Horowitz reveals that the mispronunciation is actually an inside joke stretching back to the 1980s when the group would study musician-filmmaker Don Letts’ mixtapes of dancehall music from the United Kingdom. On one edition, a deep-voiced DJ incorrectly bellowed the name “Dolly Partner.” “From that point on, she was no longer Dolly Parton but etched forever in our minds as Dolly Partner,” Diamond explains. “And that’s no disrespect to Dolly Partner because she’s an incredible musician,” Horowitz deadpans. It’s been 25 years since the Beastie Boys released Licensed to Ill and proved three bratty Jewish guys from New York could deliver hip-hop as deliciously as Run-D.M.C. Despite gray hair for Horowitz, fatherhood for Diamond and cancer for Adam “MCA” Yauch, the group is as goofy as ever, as evidenced by the old-school flavor on their new album, Hot Sauce

Thomas Rabsch/Associated Press

The group Beastie Boys, from left: Adam ‘Ad-Rock’ Horovitz, Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch, and Michael ‘Mike D’ Diamond are shown. Committee Part Two. Yauch, who discovered he had cancer of the salivary gland in 2009, is notably absent from the balcony jokefest. He’s still undergoing treatment. (“It’s hard that he’s not here, but it’d be harder for him to be here,” Diamond says.) Yauch’s condition has put the tightknit group’s near future in limbo. “It is what is,” Horowitz says seriously, not long after extinguishing a cigarette. “You deal with it. He’s getting treatment. That’s the most important thing. We’ve been friends since 1980. All of this doesn’t matter. If we go on tour, we go on tour. If

don’t go, we don’t go. We’ll figure it out. Yauch getting better is the most important thing right now.” Diamond says Yauch’s illness didn’t influence their new music because recording was mostly finished before Yauch was diagnosed. However, the bad news made the group, whose ages now range from 44 to 46, more appreciative of their time together when they returned to the studio to morph the originally planned Hot Sauce Committee Part One into Part Two. The Beastie Boys’ first lyrical effort in seven years — 2007’s The Mix Up was an

instrumental affair — is a return to the group’s signature roots of uncomplicated beats and clever rhymes. For instance, one moment on the carefully crafted track “Long Burn The Fire” finds Ad-Rock hollering, “I’ll make you sick like a Kenny Rogers Roaster.” There are also wacky references to Tippi Hedren, Ted Danson and Andre Leon Talley. The album’s tone is more akin to 1994’s Ill Communication and 1998’s Hello Nasty than the decidedly more serious route the Beastie Boys took with 2004’s To the 5 Boroughs. Each of those albums debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts when they were originally released. While the Beastie Boys were originally known for their bad boy personas, they’ve evolved. In recent years, they’ve presented themselves as poster boys for pacifism. They headlined the Tibetan Freedom concert series, protested the Iraq war and supported Sept. 11 attack victims. The duo still finds more comfort in cracking jokes than talking politics. When questioned why they haven’t capitalized more on their fame like LL Cool J and Queen Latifah, Diamond proclaims that he angled for Horowitz to judge the NBC talent show The Voice. (“The network went with Adam Levine,” Diamond matter-of-factly notes.) He eventually relents though. “All the music I listened to in high school that I loved and that moved me wasn’t the same music other kids were listening to in school,” Diamond discloses. “I got into punk rock and new wave then dub and hiphop. I still feel like I’m an outsider. I still feel like we’re doing this thing that’s outside of the People’s Choice Awards.”

New from Matthew Morrison and The Cars By Glenn Gamboa

with Gwyneth Paltrow. It’s too bad, since those slots could have been replaced with sweet little surprises like the Broadway-styled ballad “It’s Over,” which Morrison co-wrote with Marc Shaiman, or the clubpop number “Dancing in the Rain.” Luckily, Morrison’s debut is good enough to give him plenty of chances to get the mix right.

When he’s at his best — in the pop-rocker “Still Got Tonight,” co-written by American Idol Kris Allen, and the Jason Mraz-ish, island-tinged “Hey,” co-written by Morrison and ‘N Sync’s JC Chasez — TV’s Mr. Schue is clearly ready for broader stardom as a new adult pop leading man. Unfortunately, even on what should be a sure thing like Morrison’s debut, there’s still unnecessary bet-hedging. The weakest parts of Matthew Morrison are the celebrity-driven hedges. His duet with Sting on the already-corny “Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot” is leaden, while the weird mash-up of Elton John’s

Allyson evokes heartache, pathos on new CD By Charles J. Gans Associated Press

Karrin Allyson, ’Round Midnight (Concord) Karrin Allyson’s darkly beautiful and melancholic ’Round Midnight offers a sharp contrast to her last album, 2008’s Grammy-nominated CD Imagina, a bright and breezy, upbeat homage to Brazil’s bossa nova master Antonio Carlos Jobim. Here Allyson shows her versatility with a tastefully understated, backto-basics collection of classic jazz and pop ballads (with a few rarities) by such masters as Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Johnny Mandel, Stephen Sondheim and Paul Simon. Allyson makes this album even more personal and intimate by handling all the keyboard parts herself for the first time on the 13 albums

she’s recorded for Concord over the past 20 years. Her classical piano training shows in her elegant introduction to Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile,” while her electric Fender Rhodes adds a more contemporary feel to Simon’s folk-rock “April Come She Will.” Allyson’s musicianship is evidenced by the fact that she wrote nearly all the arrangements herself, starting with the opening “Turn Out the Stars,” slowing down the tempo of Evans’ tune to elucidate Gene Lees’ bittersweet, nuanced lyrics. Her arrangements also benefit from a strong supporting cast — guitarist Rod Fleeman, harmonica player Randy Weinstein, and particularly reedman Bob Sheppard, who broadens the instrumental palette by play-

ing tenor sax, bass clarinet, soprano sax and flute on different tracks. Allyson is a consummate jazz singer whose harmonic feel and storytelling skills enable her to evoke the heartache and pathos of both older and more contemporary songs, from the Chopin-inspired “I’m Always Chasing Rainbows” and “Goodbye,” associated with the Benny Goodman Orchestra, to Fran Landesman’s “Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most” and Anthony Newley’s “There’s No Such Thing as Love.” CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: Allyson closes the album with Monk’s “’Round Midnight,” her sultry voice accompanied only by Ed Howard’s acoustic bass in a sparse arrangement that enhances the tune’s theme of late-night loneliness.

HOT SONG After stretching artistically in recent years, Incubus, in its new single, “Adolescents” (Epic), returns to its platinum-selling, early Aughts sweet spot. The midtempo rocker still has Brandon Boyd’s soaring vocals, and they come back to the laid-back, dudegroove of “Drive” and “Wish You Were Here.” Perhaps the “Out of sight, out of mind” chorus is a projection of the band’s own worries after nearly five years without a studio album?

Wiig’s writing, performance impressive in ‘Bridesmaids’

bridesmaids HHH1/2 rating: R for some strong sexuality, and language throughout Running time: 2:05 Starring: Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Jon Hamm, Chris O’Dowd, Melissa McCarthy, Jill Clayburgh By Bobby Bozeman Special to The Star

Audiences have known that Kristen Wiig is funny for a while now. Now they get to find out if she can carry a movie on her own (she can) and if she’s good at writing (she is.) Some may think of Bridesmaids as a chick flick, but it isn’t. What it is, is a really funny and very smart comedy that lets everyone know that humor knows no gender. Bridesmaids opens with Annie Walker (Wiig) in the midst of her booty call with a very sleezy but hot Ted (Jon Hamm) who constantly seems like he has better things to be doing than putting up with Walker. The movie then transitions to Walker meeting up with her childhood friend Lillian (Maya Rudolph) who asks her to be her maid of honor. Walker finds herself battling for the title of Lillian’s BFF with trophy wife Helen (played perfectly by Rose Byrne) who always seems to be doing everything right. Helen provides a constant contrast to Walker who is down on her luck after the closing of her bakery and the loss of her job. The competition, along with the loss of her business and the cold shoulder of Ted, proves more than Walker can handle and she just goes a little crazy. The laughs are based in a world of complex and very human characters with real emotional payoffs, which, paired with the ensemble’s great timing, makes for a riot. And Bridesmaids isn’t afraid to get straight up

Some scenes tread a fine line between funny and just lowbrow and gross, but the movie effectively uses the turn of events that spawns said scene to further push Walker to the deep end. The humor and story work very well together, and that is a credit to Wiig’s writing and the direction of Paul Feig (Freaks and Geeks). A Zach Galifianakis-esque Melissa McCarthy threatens to steal a few scenes as the over-the-

top role of the groom’s sister. And again McCarthy’s role isn’t solely a humorous one, as she provides some comfort to Wiig’s character in her time of need. Now, it’s not all roses, fellow bridesmaids Rita (Wendi McLendon-Covey) and Becca (Ellie Kemper) could have used more to do and Walker’s British brother-sister roommates (Matt Lucas and Rebel Wilson) could have used less. And the pacing was kind of to the point to where the

movie dragged a bit toward the end, but that’s not uncommon with producer Judd Apatow’s movies. This movie is also notable as Jill Clayburgh’s final role — the actress died last year of leukemia. Clayburgh played Walker’s mother, who, despite never having drank alcohol, is an AA sponsor. Bridesmaids strikes a good balance of heart and humor and has a pretty strong story structure to hold it all in place.

‘Priest 3-D,’ which opens today, was not screened in advance for critics. A review will be available online today at BamaEscapes.com

IN BRIEF Music at McClellan opens 2011 concert series Although on a smaller scale than years past, the 2011 Music at McClellan’s Longleaf Concert Series has begun. Taking place at McClellan’s Monteith Amphitheater, which is still under construction, the series features a collection of local musicians. “We’re calling it a transition series, or backward series, since the audience is facing backward to the hillside,” said Pete Conroy, vice chairman for the series. “They are free concerts, but we’re looking for donations from the public.” Saturday’s performance will feature local acoustic musician Abby Parks. Steel drum group JAXPAN will perform May 21, jazz group TAD of Jazz will play May 28, and the Etowah Youth Orchestra will close out the series on June 11. The show on June 4 has not yet been announced. The door opens at 5 p.m. for all of the concerts, and the music runs from 6-8 p.m. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and food. Space at the amphitheater is limited to about 150, Conroy said, but the venue will be open to full capacity — 2,000 seats — for next year. For more information, call 256-782-8010.

Dick Van Dyke, with a self-portrait of a lucky man By Frazier Moore Associated Press

NEW YORK — Dick Van Dyke looks back and marvels. The way he sizes up his 85-and-counting years is summarized by the title of his new memoir, My Lucky Life in and out of Show Business: dumb luck. Luckily, he had a lot of talent, too. Van Dyke writes proudly of his roles in one of television’s most beloved sitcoms (The Dick Van Dyke Show) as well as a classic film musical (Mary Poppins). But he characterizes those hits, along with the rest of his career, as lucky breaks that fell into his lap. So don’t come to this breezy but heartfelt book expecting Van Dyke to crow about his many accomplishments. Or bellyache about the low points. Or dish dirt: In his preface, he posts a consumer alert that “there is nothing salacious here.” He makes good on that promise. The book’s very creation seems a surprise to him, judging from a recent interview. “It never occurred to me to write a book,” he says. “My life seemed kind of pedestrian to me. I auditioned for a few things, but for the most part, I just happened to be in the right place at the right time, just going with the flow.” Van Dyke grew up in Danville, Ill., a small town in America’s heartland, the son of a stenographer and a salesman for the Sunshine Cookie Co. His involvement in the high school drama club led to a job as an announcer on a Danville radio station. Then, in his early 20s, Van Dyke hooked up with a former chum, Phil Erickson, who needed a partner for his comedy duo. It already had a booking in California. Van Dyke signed on without even asking what he was supposed to do. Their act called for the pair to comically mime records, but the Merry Mutes weathered obstacles and money short-

actor, a singer and a dancer, but also as affable everyguy with equal skill for light comedy and rubber-jointed slapstick. “When I was a kid, I loved all the silent comedians — Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy, Chaplin,” he says. “And I used to imitate them. I’d go to see a Buster Keaton movie and come home and try things out I’d seen. I learned to do pratfalls when I was very young.” After the mid-1960s, Van Dyke’s career was laden with short-lived TV shows and “a lot of really bad movies” — Van Dyke laughs in gratitude that no one remembers them. Maybe he was just too versatile, and stubbornly wholesome, to find another winning project that did justice to his talents. Even so, the 1990s signaled an unexpected show-biz comeback with “Diagnosis Murder,” his best-received project in decades. In that lighthearted mystery series, Damian Dovarganes/Associated Press Van Dyke played physicianActor Dick Van Dyke says his life in show business comes sleuth Dr. Mark Sloan, while down to dumb luck in his new memoir, ‘My Lucky Life in his son Barry co-starred as an and out of Show Business.’ LAPD detective.

Wakarusa Where: Mulberry Mountain, Ark. When: June 2-5 The skinny: The best thing to come out of Arkansas since Razorbacks quarterback Ryan Mallet. While that’s not been a long time — what? Four months? — the vibe isn’t bad as an opening act for your next festival trek. Reasons to go: My Morning Jacket, Ben Harper and RELENTLESS7, STS9 and Umphrey’s McGee.

Hangout Music Festival brings big names for second year By Bran Strickland bstrickland@annistonstar.com

hen planning a big outdoor event — a really big event — the what-if scenarios must nearly equal the number in attendance. But an oil spill? Though that scenario bordered on the unthinkable, it’s what A.J. Niland and the staff of HUKA Entertainment had to deal with last May when they launched the inaugural Hangout Music Festival. One year later — with the spill and a rainy Sunday, too — Hangout is back, and if ticket sales are any barometer, it’s hard for some to even remember there was even a hiccup. “Our first day of sales was tremendous and the pace has not stopped,” Niland said in mid-March, and now with the date rapidly approaching, the festival is sold out, anticipating more than 35,000 patrons. Tickets are still available, though, through many after-market brokers. Hangout Music Festival, which takes place May 20-22, is just one multi-day summer music festival among the trend that has been growing over the past decade. Decades removed from Woodstock, the resurgence of the multi-band concerts in out-

door venues was paved by Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, just two of the biggest. Today, many more have gotten on board and the festivals span from coast to coast, each one with its own personality – The Hangout Festival included. “It doesn’t seem very exotic to us, but there are very few people that realize that Alabama even has beaches,” Niland said. With Bonnaroo catering to the free spirits, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits satisfying a metropolitan vibe, Niland said it was important for organizers to carve out their own niche. Breaking apart from the festivals where patrons go and camp out — which is among the driving force in the summer scene — they pursued another demographic. “Our demographic really centers around 25-40, who is young adult or starting family or young family who used to go to some of the other festival when they had the time and financial wherewithal to do it,” Niland said. “Ours

is a little more mature … maybe mom and dad, the kids and grandmaw, they spend the morning at the beach, then in the evening, the kids stay with grandmaw, and mom and dad go to some of the shows in the evening.” That grownup vibe shines through in the festival marked by schedule. Artists won’t perform into the wee hours of the morning like other festivals. Here, just as last year, the final performer on each of the three nights wraps up at 11 p.m., leaving the witching midnight hour to its own creations or the comforts of their own hotel room. Though the vibe is set for an older crowd, the lineup is not — A.J. Niland, geared toward has-been bands from that demographic’s youngowner, Spin City er days. That aspect of the festival was important, Niland said, to put this festival on par with many of the others that are known nationally. On the heels of its first-year lineup, which was dotted with award-winning bands, the festival

“For a lot of things, there is a certain level of seeing is believing and proving ourselves in year one.”

matched — if not exceeded — its star power. More than 70 bands are scheduled with Paul Simon, Widespread Panic, Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, My Morning Jacket and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals diversifying the lineup. With the music industry’s version of “build it and they will come,” the challenges for Niland and crew were two-fold. While strong acts would drive ticket sales, the allure of the beach festival was stronger for the patrons than for the artists. While selling tickets was important, even Niland said he was surprised by their ability to sell the artists. “Traditionally, beach shows are not as desired by artists because it adds a whole level of complication to their performance — sand is not good for instruments, sand it not good for sound equipment,” he said. “For a lot of things, there is a certain level of seeing is believing and proving ourselves in year one. “So, we’re very pleased with the artists that got on board with us in year one. I feel, for our first year, the lineup was really … I was not expecting to make as large a jump this year — I can tell you that.” Bran Strickland is a staff writer for The Star.

Where: Manchester, Tenn. When: June 9-12 The skinny: A shell of its former jam band self, Bonnaroo continues each year to open itself to a wider audience and is now revered by many as the go-to summer festival. When they say there’s something for everyone, that’s not a cliché. If you can’t find at least one band you like, you probably don’t have a pulse. Or the music of today’s kids is just too loud. Reasons to go: Eminem, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Arcade Fire, Mumford and Sons, Girl Talk, Lil Wayne and Loretta Lynn.

Riverfest Where: Gadsden When: June 10-11 The skinny: One of these things is not like the others. One of these things just doesn’t belong. ... Riverfest is not on the radar of the national summer music festivals, but you’ve got to give them credit for trying. And with a weekend pass going for only $25, it’s not a bad option to spend a one or two nights and have the luxury of sleeping in your own bed. Reasons to go: Randy Travis, Bo Bice, Flo Rida and Drivin N Cryin

Summerfest Where: Milwaukee, Wis. When: June 29-July 3, July 5-10 The skinny: Though their name typically doesn’t come up when talking about the top festivals in the country, Summerfest is actually the most attended festival of the season and has been rolling along since 1968. The lineup is strong and the festival is long. Pack a lunch.

Mark Humphrey/Associated Press

The fountains are a popular way to cool off for Bonnaroo patrons. Reasons to go: Kanye West, Katy Perry, Meatloaf, Toby Keith, Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, Def Leppard and Sugarland.

All Good Festival Where: Masontown, W.Va. When: July 14-17 The skinny: If you never went to Bonnaroo before it became commercialized, All Good can provide you that time machine. Heavy on the jam band vibe and nestled in the rolling hills of West Virginia, the views are as sweet as the sounds. Reasons to go: Futher featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir (founding members of the Grateful Dead), moe., Dark Star Orchestra (Grateful Dead tribute band) and Umphrey’s McGee.

Lollapalooza Where: Chicago When: August 5-7 The skinny: Once a traveling festival, Lollapalooza has taken roots in the downtown of Chicago. There’s no reason it shouldn’t be on any outdoor music lover’s bucket list. Reasons to go: Eminem, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket, Cee Lo Green.

Austin City Limits Where: Austin, Texas When: Sept. 16-18 The skinny: Among the top five — if not top three — festivals in the country with a lineup that makes you forget that you’re in the middle of Texas in September. Last year, The Eagles and Phish were just part of the lineup. Reasons to go: Lineup TBA

In a lousy year for ratings, NBC finds its ‘Voice’ By David Bauder Associated Press

NEW YORK — After a year spent mostly in the wilderness, NBC may have found its voice. The Voice, the network’s new talent show, had an audience of 12.6 million viewers for its second episode last week, the Nielsen Co. said. That was up 7 percent from its premiere — making it the first new series on the four biggest broadcast networks this season to have more viewers for its second week than it did the first. Professional singers Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Christina Aguilera are “coaches” of their own teams of amateurs in the series. Among the youthful 18-to-49-year-old demographic, only the two editions of American Idol got bigger audiences last week, Nielsen said. The series continues until the last week of June. NBC’s next competition show, the popular America’s Got Talent, premieres on May 31. Good ratings in the summer don’t mean nearly as much as they do during the traditional television season of September through June. But having a couple of shows that draw an audience this summer could help NBC promote its new programming for the fall. NBC was still a distant fourth in the ratings despite The Voice, an indication of how thin the network’s prime-time schedule is. Law & Order: SVU, at No. 30, was the only other NBC show to finish within Nielsen’s top 35 programs. An estimated 14.1 million people watched President Barack Obama on 60 Minutes Sunday, being interviewed by Steve Kroft about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. That beats the season average of 13.4 million for the newsmagazine and was particularly noteworthy because it was seen on Mother’s Day during daylight hours — factors that usually drive down the show’s audience. HBO also noted that after four showings, Game of Thrones is already the network’s third most popular series behind True Blood and Boardwalk Empire.

Philbin tries to go out a winner in Daytime Emmys By David Bauder Associated Press

NEW YORK — Regis Philbin and ABC’s exiting soap operas have multiple opportunities to go out as winners at the Daytime Emmy Awards. All My Children earned 13 Emmy nods and One Life to Live had 12, in nominations announced Wednesday for the June 19 awards show. ABC has canceled the durable soap operas, each on the air for more than 40 years, and their final episodes will be in the coming months. Philbin has said that later this year he is leaving the talk show built around him, first with co-host Kathie Lee Gifford and now with Kelly Ripa. His show has never won a Daytime Emmy for best talk show. Philbin was nominated for best talk-show host, an award he shared once a decade ago with Rosie O’Donnell. He also won a Daytime Emmy for best game show host when Who Wants to Be a Millionaire was at its apex. General Hospital led the way with 21 Daytime Emmy nominations, followed by The Young and the Restless with 20 and Sesame Street with 16. The awards will be distributed at the Las Vegas Hilton, televised by CBS. All My Children was nominated for best daytime drama, along with General Hospital, The Young and the

in the category. Other nominees include Wayne Brady of Let’s Make a Deal, who will host the Daytime Emmy ceremony; Todd Newton of Family Game Night on the Hub, a new show on a new network; and Meredith Vieira of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Cash Cab has the chance to make it four straight Emmys as best game show, with competition from The Price Is Right, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! Besides Philbin and Ripa, nominees for best talk-show host are Mehmet Oz; Rachael Ray; The Doctors team of Travis Stork, Andrew Ordon, Jim Sears and Lisa Masterson; and The View round-table of Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Chris Pizzello/Associated Press Shepherd.

Pop culture Q&A

Movie industry prefers amount spent rather than theater numbers

TV CROSSWORD

By Rich Heldenfels Akron Beacon Journal

Q: Why do they announce movie ticket sales in terms of dollar amounts? Ticket prices obviously are much higher now than they were when, say, Jaws came out. Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to measure this by number of tickets sold instead of the amount of money that was brought in? A: Get ready for a long answer. The movie industry wants to impress you with its success, and dollar figures look better than the number of people in the seats. When you say how many people went to a movie, it may not look all that impressive compared to other forms of entertainment; far more people watch a hit TV show in a given week than go to most hit movies. You can see the same phenomenon in the video-game industry, where, with the high cost of games, sales revenue looks much more impressive than units sold. Of course, dollar figures can be confusing, too. The premium price for 3-D showings — about $3 more than for the same movie in

Nor do revenue tallies show profitability — which is the big reason for making sequels, spin-offs and imitations. At this writing, Insidious has taken in about $48.3 million, but cost just $1.5 million to make. Source Code has made $48.9 million — but cost $32 million to make, and still more for advertising and promotion. And I’m not even getting into the issue of overseas revenue, which can turn

some U.S. flops into overall hits. As for your question about how to compare current hits to older ones, the Box Office Mojo website, for one, has an all-time movie ranking adjusted for inflation. According to unadjusted returns, Avatar is the box-office champ; Box Office Mojo’s inflation adjustment ranks it 14th, and Gone With the Wind first. Q: Could you please tell me if the guy in the Ford “Swap Your Ride” commercial is the same guy in the Visa towel commercial, who comes home with dirt all over him and two other people in the ad run around after him wiping up with Visa towels. They look alike to me. A: Same guy. That’s Mike Rowe of the Dirty Jobs series and many commercials. Q: A few years ago, two shows were having what I thought was a successful run and suddenly they were off the air, never to be seen again. They were Falcone and a remake of The Fugitive. What hap-

pened to these shows and why weren’t they continued? A: Because, as with many shows, they did not draw enough of an audience. Falcone, with Jason Gedrick, seemed ill-fated before it ever aired. Instead of using it as a weekly series, CBS ran its nine episodes as a miniseries over eight nights in April 2000 but did not pick it up for the following fall. It got a second chance of sorts that summer, when it was repeated as a weekly show. But The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows notes that “it attracted such low ratings that CBS canceled it after only five episodes had aired.” The newer version of The Fugitive, starring Private Practice’s Tim Daly, aired for a single season in 2000-01. In spite of a premise audiences had liked before and a good cast, Entertainment Weekly said the series “limped along to poor ratings for 22 stubborn episodes before cancellation.”
