When a dead body turns up in Wheeler’s apartment, the action kicks into high gear, as the volatile cop races to stay one step ahead of the FBI, gangsters from St. Louis, his own chief of police and a swarm of hot girlfriends, who either lust after Wheeler or want to hurt him ... or both! Miller’s entertaining story is set during the mid-1960s, an era of fast muscle cars (Sting Rays and GTOs), hippies, nascent drug lords, violent, bigoted cops and free love. To the reader’s amusement, the awardwinning author of Broken Reed waxes nostalgic about Speedy Wheeler’s imperfect world. Art Gould is a former newspaper reporter and book publisher.

The setup is simple: FlorReviewed by Brian Robinson ence, Italy, 1348 — a plague is running rampant, causing The Decameron by Boccac- most people to flee the city and cio is the kind of book you get surrounding areas. for people who like to read, but A group of 10 young people, who feel classics are essentially three men and seven women, three things: long, dull, and elect to go to the countryside, dusty. moving from place to place While it doesn’t take much as the mood takes them, and effort to think of several books every day for 10 days each of that fit that description, this them tells a story. one is a fast, often funny read Most of the time, except that might have something for for two days, these stories are every reader. And for those of all on a theme (such as those

whose love ended unhappily), chosen by an appointed king or queen of the group who also chooses what they’ll do the next day. There are some hints of hidden romances among the group, usually at the day’s last story epilogue, but it’s not really important to know what’s going on there … and to be honest it’s not spelled out well. There are also two defenses of the book from the author, one sort of serious and one funny. Other than those interruptions, it’s all stories. And given

the volume, it’s likely there will be something for every reader’s taste. Even short stories can be boring, but these tales often are ribald and raunchy and more sexual than you would expect. While the edition I read — Everyman’s Library, translated by J.G. Nichols — did have a nice glossary of translations, it wasn’t necessary for most of the allusions and sly asides. But it was helpful for other, presumably regional sayings. This is a good, easy book to read that even classics-haters will enjoy.

‘Valentine’ trilogy well-served by 2nd book Brava Valentine by Adriana Trigiani; Harper; 332 pages; $26 By Amanda St. Amand St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Fans of the Big Stone Gap series loved Adriana Trigiani’s writing style and ability to bring voice to characters. Her latest series achieves the same strong sense of character in a vastly different setting: New York City. Trigiani started this trilogy last year with Very Valentine; Book 2 is Brava Valentine. In the first book, we met Valentine

Roncalli, the heroine who is one of four children of a loud, loving Italian family. Valentine is the apprentice to her grandmother in a business making custom shoes, struggling to balance her career with a rocky romantic life. That theme continues in Brava Valentine, as Grandma decides that Valentine and her uptight brother Alfred will take over the shoe business. That’s because Grandma has remarried and moved to Italy, leaving Valentine as the decision maker for the Angelini Shoe Co. And while there is supposed to be conflict between Valentine and her brother, Trigiani glosses

over most of their business clashes, focusing instead on the problems that stem when Valentine catches Alfred cheating on his wife. While the first book ended with a romantic cliffhanger — will Valentine and Gianluca get things together? — the second one ends in a similar vein. Before we reach that point, though, Trigiani exposes the prejudices, marital woes and financial problems of Valentine’s three married siblings. Aha! Maybe our heroine will realize that those perfect marriages of family and friends she sees from the outside aren’t so perfect after all.

Willie Murphy’s disc set sums up a career of highs and lows By Chris Riemenschneider

Rap pioneer Salt makes music to uplift women By Kevin C. Johnson

Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

MINNEAPOLIS — It was 1971 — right after he produced Bonnie Raitt’s first album and right before he formed the greatest party band this town has ever seen — when Willie Murphy made the decision that would keep him in Minneapolis forever. No wonder it still haunts him. The singer, songwriter, guitarist, pianist, filmmaker and all-around argonaut had an offer to become a house producer for Elektra Records, which issued his influential 1967 album with John Koerner, Running, Jumping, Standing Still. He would have made more money than he has ever seen. And he could have moved to Los Angeles or New York. (”Easy: New York’s a real city,” he said.) After five years of vagabondish touring with Koerner, though, he wanted to have fun closer to home. That’s why he formed Willie & the Bees and said no to Elektra. “That’s the one thing I still think about now and then,” Murphy said, puffing from a cigar that looked long since burnt-out. With the bluntness that one friend described as “equally charming and brutal,” he added, “I’d probably be dead if I had done it. I was quite an addict at the time, so going to New York and having money wouldn’t have been a good combination.” However, Murphy didn’t hide his remorse: “I did think kind of naively at the time that I could go back home to Minneapolis and just make records there. Well, I’ve done that, but it hasn’t been very easy.” In a music scene rife with musicians famous for not being more famous, Murphy might be the godfather. His career highs are well known among older Twin Cities music fans: things like that classic album with Koerner, any one of the thousands of sweltering gigs during the Bees’ off-andon 23-year run, and the Minnesota Music Academy’s decision to make him an inaugural member of the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame alongside Prince and Bob Dylan in 1990. Murphy’s lows are the stuff of local lore, too. Things like causing the White Bear Lake City Council to ban him from town during his wildest drinking days, and having countless fellow musicians want to strangle him over four decades, and watching album after album fail to rekindle his star status. It seemed sadly fitting, then, that just as he was about to release his new double disc in October on Red House Records — his most ambitious and widely distributed record in more than a decade — he slipped on a piece of fencing in his back yard and broke his arm. Murphy is finally getting around to a CD-release concert Friday at the Bedlam Theater, near his old haunts on Minneapolis’ West Bank. The show will feature his R&B-flavored eight-member-plus big band, which doesn’t perform a whole lot these days because he can’t get gigs that pay well enough for it. “I only like to play with real musicians, and real musicians need to get paid,” he harrumphed. Murphy, 65, has been relegated to weekly “blues jam”

www.bamaescapes.com

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Jeff Wheeler/MCT

Willie Murphy plays his guitar in the living room of his Minneapolis, Minn., home on Jan. 25. gigs for most of the past decade. His Blue Monday shows were a mainstay until the Viking Bar closed in 2006. He now plays every Monday at the reopened Wilebski’s Blues Saloon in St. Paul and every Wednesday at the Driftwood Char Bar in south Minneapolis. “I love to play blues, but don’t cast me strictly as a blues guy,” he griped. “I know I’m better at it than most people around here, but that doesn’t mean it’s what I do best.” There is no blues on Murphy’s new album. At least, not the 12-bar kind that 16-year-old guitar prodigies are famous for making. Instead, the two discs are split between two other distinct styles. “A Shot of Love in a Time of Need” features the hornblown, funky R&B sound that Murphy honed all those years with the Bees, played here with the likes of drummer Gordy Knudtson and veteran horn players Irv Williams, Max Ray and Scott Snyder. They grind it out together on such covers as the doo-wop classic “Life Is But a Dream” and Allen Toussaint’s “Everything I Do Gonh Be Funky,” plus five original firestarters such as “Actions Speak Louder Than Words,” which taps Murphy’s political streak (his last record was titled Devil in the White House). The other CD, Autobiographical Notes, is a mellower, contemplative collection of soul ballads that Murphy recorded mostly on his own, playing piano or guitar. It showcases his relatively unsung talent as songwriter along with his still-vibrant voice, gravelly like Dr. John or John Hiatt but with a hint of jazz-buff smoothness. Both albums were recorded in Murphy’s studio, dubbed Cockroach Park, which is located right behind the big picture window at the front of his disheveled but resilientlooking house in Minneapolis. The house is just about a mile from where Murphy grew up in south Minneapolis in an Irish Catholic family — mostly without a father, with the nuns at St. Stephen’s School doing their best to keep him out of trouble.

Groundbreaking rapper Salt of Salt-NPepa fame isn’t worrying about who’s walking through the door the duo opened in the ’80s with hits such as “Push It,” “Tramp” and “Shake Your Thang.” She’s heard of new female rapper Nicky Minaj, for example, but acknowledges she’s not that familiar with Minaj’s music. Today’s hip-hop might be a bit much for Salt, who is working on gospel music and is more likely to listen to “music that uplifts and keeps me encouraged.” “I think there’s definitely some good hip-hop out there but, for the most part, I think it’s too negative and misogynistic and violent,” says Salt (aka Cheryl James). “It’s really gone to an extreme.” Salt is trying to help bring more positive messages to music with the Fresh Fest tour, featuring a number of throwback hip-hop acts. Back when Salt-N-Pepa was making history as the first female rap act with a gold or platinum CD and the first to win a Grammy Award, life was more challenging than fun, Salt says. “We had a problem getting in the door and being taken seriously,” she says. “We had to knock down doors and convince people we had what it takes.” She remembers one night early in the group’s career when the duo was backstage at a RunD.M.C. concert. She overheard a conversation between rap mogul Russell Simmons and another person. Simmons was asked what he thought of Salt-N-Pepa, and he answered with a thumbs-down gesture. Salt-N-Pepa went on to record hit after hit such as “Shoop,” “Whatta Man,” “None of Your Business” and, of course, “Let’s Talk About Sex.” The latter was among the songs that gave Salt-N-Pepa a reputation for being socially conscious. “That’s our responsibility as an artist,” she says. “I pray for other artists to accept that responsibility. The kids need those role models.” Unfortunately, those role models aren’t coming from other female rappers. Though history has seen a variety of female rappers, these days they’re having a tough time breaking through to the mainstream. Salt-N-Pepa hope to be relatable to women with its next CD, its first since 1997’s Brand New. One of Salt’s gospel songs is part of the project. Rockwilder is among the producers, and Salt calls the music “very female-empowering.”

Sade’s new album won’t let you relax Sade Soldier of Love First, a moratorium: no more mentions of Sade and products for the bath in the same paragraph. The impossibly refined vocalist Sade Adu and her faithful band reinvented singer-songwriterly soul in the 1980s, and its sparse output since then still sets the standard for the field. If Sade were, say, Nick Drake or Bill Withers or Elliott Smith — male singer-songwriters with a similar gift for expressing introspection, and for honoring the sotto voce side of musical dynamics — her work would not constantly be compared to Lavender-Verbena Mineral Soak. Perhaps disgust with being branded as terminally relaxing inspired the title track of Sade’s latest studio release. Its moody martial beat and (subtly!) aggressive vocals bespeak Grace Jones more than Norah. Soldier of Love is unique in its confrontational tone, but it connects to the other best tracks on this album, which employ minimalism and the rules of cool to carefully reconstruct various musical styles. “Be That Easy” lopes along using the

cowboy-song beat that the Jones most indebted to Sade so often uses, yet its bleak lyric lends a very different color to the theme of the wandering heart. “Bring Me Home” reconsiders trip hop by making a connection to Arabic music. All of these songs work not only because of Sade’s perfect phrasing but because the band is expert at getting the most from the limited gesture. “Babyfather” is one of only a few hopeful lyrics on Soldier of Love. The mix of musical restraint, and sad, sad words sometimes creates a static feeling: There’s just no hook in a meditation like “Morning Bird,” and it somehow becomes forgettable. But those moments are infrequent on this release, which will surely be treasured by Sade’s many fans, if dismissed by those who can see only her and the band’s indigo-colored surfaces. — Ann Powers, Los Angeles Times

Latest from Yea-Sayer is an oddly fun ride Yea-Sayer Odd Blood On All Hour Cymbals, its 2007 debut, Yeasayer positioned itself on the indierock continuum somewhere between Animal Collective and Dirty Projectors, with unison vocal chants, African-influenced percussion and guitars, and a playful but rigorous eclecticism. On Odd Blood, the Brooklyn-based trio sublimates all but the last of those for a surprisingly pop-friendly joyride (analogous, in a way, to recent work by those other bands). Odd Blood’s first half is heavy on new-wave synths and cheerful melodies, including the occasional falsetto lead or R&B-flavored harmony vocal, like a weirder Hot Chip. Aside from willfully distorted opener “The Children,” every-

thing is bright and shiny, from the tumbling “Ambling Alp” to the irresistibly percolating “O.N.E.” For the album’s second half, the structures loosen, almost as if Yeasayer took those tight melodies and unraveled them just for fun (and fun they are, with stomping tracks like “Rome”). “It’s hard having fun/it’s much easier said than it’s done,” they claim on “O.N.E.” Maybe it wasn’t easy, but Odd Blood is odd fun. — Steve Klinge, MCT

Reckless Kelly channels country songwriter Bennett Reckless Kelly Somewhere In Time The great thing about the roots music movement in America is the little-known and regional voices exposed to wider audiences. Reckless Kelly does us all a favor with its latest, Somewhere In Time. The album is made up completely of songs written by Pinto Bennett, an overlooked country songwriter from Boise, Idaho, whose adroit music deserves a closer look. Two of the band’s members, Willy and Cody Braun, grew up in Idaho and were exposed to Bennett’s music long ago. Bennett was a hit in Europe, but never really caught on in the U.S., and that’s a shame. The music as channeled by the Austin, Texas-based band is fun, poignant, authentic and completely deserving of this tribute, which comes on the heels of Reckless Kelly’s most commercially successful album, 2008’s Bulletproof. The album opens with the heavy

rocker “Little Blossom,” the story of a life spinning out of control, bounces along with “Bird on a Wire,” and gets all deep with “Some People’s Kids.” Bennett’s at his best, though, when his wry humor comes to the forefront on songs like “I’ve Done Everything I Could Do Wrong” and “I Hold The Bottle, You Hold The Wheel.” Here’s hoping “Somewhere In Time” brings a little more attention to Bennett. CHECK THIS TRACK OUT: The best thing about Bennett’s songs are the evocative lyrics. Bennett paints a vivid picture in the title track. Add in a beautiful fiddle line and the song is stunning. — Chris Talbott, Associated Press

Jaheim plays Casanova on ‘Another Round’ Jaheim Another Round Jaheim is the ultimate R&B crooner on Another Round, serving up — as he has on his previous four discs — the usual selection of songs about romance. The 31-year-old New Jersey native’s husky voice is still as impressive as it was when he came on the scene with his debut album Ghetto Love in 2001. And just as in the past, Jaheim juxtaposes that old-school sound with distinctly contemporary lyrics, singing, “Let’s go get your Lexus changed, change your last name to my last name,” on the classic-sounding love song “Whoa.” He reaches back to the doo-wop era for “Impossible,” an entirely retro track (save for calling his lover “shawty”). And he introduces a little flute and snare on the unexpectedly funky “Her.” An acoustic guitar makes “Closer” a memorable slow jam. It’s a far cry from the album’s uptempo title track, which

comes off like an obvious attempt at creating a club favorite. “We both on that liquid courage, we ’bout to be on the verge. We order another round,” Jaheim sings. The disc’s shining jewel, “In My Hands,” both vocally and lyrically sounds like something from Luther Vandross’ catalog, and showcases Jaheim at his best. “I woke up on top of the world today, holding her hand, she doesn’t mind me leading the way ... gypsy woman can you read my palm, is my loveline broken or is it long?” — Melanie Sims, Associated Press

‘Percy Jackson’ lacking some magic percy jackson & the olympians: the lightning thief HH1/2 Rating: PG for action violence and peril;

scary images and suggestive material; mild language Running time: 2:00 STARRING: Logan Lerman, Brandon T. Jackson, Alexandra Daddario

By Colin Covert Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

Somewhere at Hogwarts School a wizard is working on a powerful anti-mimicry spell. Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief echoes J.K. Rowling’s mythological world so closely, with its magical young half-bloods and crowded canvas of supporting deities, that a hex must be brewing. Percy, a teenage New Yorker, discovers that his long-absent father, a “dazzling” guy who vanished after impregnating his mom, was none other than Poseidon, god of the sea. (There are a lot of guys on the Jersey shore imitating Greek gods; this one meant it.) His heritage explains Percy’s ability to submerge in his high school pool for seven minutes, his dyslexia (which scrambles written English, but

translates Greek in a flash) and his ADHD. He’s not hyper, he’s got finely honed battle reflexes. The same could be said for Chris Columbus, director of the first two Harry Potter films, who paces this film like a demolition derby. There’s a ratio of one explosion, monster attack or life-and-death battle every 2.8 minutes, and Columbus makes sure they detonate on time. It leaps so breathlessly from one cliffhanger to the next that the action lacks an emotional foundation. The fireballs are great but the story feels confused in its tone and direction. The characters are swiftly sketched in. Percy (played by the likable and reasonably believable Logan Lerman) is a decent sort who’s understandably overprotective of his mother (Catherine Keener, all wounded eyes and tender smiles) and ticked at his macho slob stepfather (Joe Pantoliano). His best friend Grover (Brandon T. Jackson) is all urban sass and urgent libido; given that he’s a satyr — goat from the waist down — it makes sense. At a summer camp/renaissance festival where apprentice heroes train, they meet Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario), an up-and-coming Xena, and the trio

set off on a transcontinental road trip to find a thunderbolt stolen from Zeus. The film is a meat-and-potatoes adventure enlivened by a few brief star turns. Pierce Brosnan is amiable as Percy’s doting schoolteacher, and Sean Bean’s petulant Zeus fits the Greeks’ preference for gods who are as selfish and shortsighted as humans. The real fun arrives with Uma Thurman as Medusa. It’s a strong actress who can out-emote a coiffure of writhing, hissing snakes, but Thurman does it. With eyes like those, who needs lightning bolts? Steve Coogan and Rosario Dawson are in great form as the arrogant Hades and his bickering wife Persephone; hell as a bad marriage has never looked so vivid. And the inferno’s physical location on the U.S. map is a good, broad joke. Unfortunately, there’s not enough going on in the film to sustain the needed excitement. In the race to copy Harry Potter, many a series pilot has been launched and crashed. Does anyone remember Eragon and Inkheart? Percy Jackson is better than those, but not by enough. It’s technically polished, spirited, well intentioned but curiously lacking in magic.

If werewolves are going take their place at the front of the contemporary pop-culture pack with vampires and zombies, they’re going to need a better vehicle than The Wolfman, a somber yet ultimately silly take on the 1941 classic, The Wolf Man. Considering how trouble-plagued the making of this reportedly was — original director Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo) replaced by Joe Johnston (Jumanji), numerous delays, reshoots, and rescheduled release dates — The Wolfman isn’t the disaster that it might have been. But it’s not particularly compelling either. Set in the late 1800s, the story revolves around Lawrence Talbot (Benicio del Toro), a man who left his childhood home in rural England and never looked back. However, the strange death of his brother Ben (Simon Merrells), who was found in the woods attacked in the most savage way, prompts him to return and face his father (Anthony Hopkins) and try to solve the murder. In one of The Wolfman’s best scenes, Lawrence is set upon by the beast while at a Gypsy camp outside town. He survives but, of course, carries the curse that makes him dread the full moon. Similarly, a scene where Lawrence shape-shifts in a room full of doctors who believe his problems are all in his head manages to be suspenseful. And Hugo Weaving (the bad guy in The Matrix movies) acquits himself well as a Scotland Yard detective. Mostly, though, The Wolfman is more frightfully dull than frightening. Whether Lawrence is going all Beauty and the Beast with his brother’s fiancee (Emily Blunt) or engaging in some laughable wolf-on-wolf violence that is supposed to be the big climax (though the special effects aren’t particularly special), none of it adds up to much. But werewolf fans, don’t despair. There’s always the third season of HBO’s True Blood (new and improved with werewolves!) and the second season of BBC America’s Being Human to look forward to.

Alba getting plenty of action in different genres By Rick Bentley McClatchy Newspapers

Jessica Alba and Ashton Kutcher share what was surely a touching moment in ‘Valentine’s Day.’

‘Valentine’s Day’ overstuffed with stars Valentine’s day H1/2 Rating: PG-13 for some sexual material

Our freelancers include Jamie Foxx The star-studded, plainly named film begs for puns. Should we expect a as a cynical sports reporter, Kathy Bates as his boss, Eric Dane as a Brett Flag Day sequel? But then again, this Favre-esque retiring quarterback, is a year that will see a movie simply Queen Latifah as his agent, Jennifer called and simply about Babies. Moviegoers comfortable with ignoring the Biel as his publicist, George Lopez as a happily married man (whose wife calculated ploy of Valentine’s Day will is the only one virtually left out of the likely enjoy its easy predictability and movie’s pairings), Bradley Cooper as general cheerfulness. a jet-set businessman, and his airliner Set in Los Angeles, the film begins with the baritone voice of a “DJ Romeo seatmate Julia Roberts, absurdly playMidnight” announcing that in honor of ing an Army captain on leave of duty.

To say that Valentine’s Day is overstuffed would be an understatement. Not only does it ooze stars like clowns spilling out of a clown car, but it’s gauzily wrapped in roses and red-andwhite cards. To his credit, director Garry Marshall juggles the many overlapping story lines successfully, though Valentine’s Day is obviously strained by the excess. Marshall is a funny man who has, in a long career, made some beloved movies (Pretty Woman) and some lamentable ones (Runaway Bride). The screenplay by Katherine Fugate, working from a story by her, Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, has obvious similarity to 2003’s Love Actually but little of the wit. Most successful is the chemistry between Grace and Hathaway, but with so many swings, that’s a pretty low batting average. Valentine’s Day is exactly what it professes to be: an overdose of sentimentality. You certainly can’t mistake it, as one confused 5th grader in the film does, for anything related to the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. But the reference is enough to make you wish for Scarface, or, if love is still on the menu, Some Like It Hot.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Jessica Alba didn’t get a lot of Valentine’s Day cards when she was young. Before you start feeling sorry for the stunning star of Valentine’s Day, her lack of romantic mail was caused by attending 11 different elementary schools. “I was never really in one place for too long. I was always the new kid,” Alba says — joking that many of her classmates didn’t know her name and would have had to write “new kid’ on alba the envelope. Since exploding onto the acting scene in 2000 with the TV series Dark Angel, Alba’s become a marquee regular from Fantastic Four to Good Luck Chuck. Her role in Valentine’s Day has her playing the love interest to Ashton Kutcher, one of many storylines in the new Garry Marshall movie. These days, the 28-year-old actress’ Valentine is husband Cash Warren. Alba says the couple’s 19-month-old daughter makes celebrating a challenge. “I like to plan things with my husband when we have time to do it,” she says. “Frankly, now it’s just a nice excuse to go on a date with my husband.” Being a wife and a mom isn’t all that keeps Alba busy. She’s worked the last few years to land as many different film roles as possible. Along with Valentine’s Day, she has three movies — Meet the Fockers Sequel, Machete and An Invisible Sign of My Own — scheduled to be released this year. “When I first got launched into the spotlight I was on an action TV show and everyone kept telling me I was going to get pigeonholed into this action genre thing,” Alba says. “This past year I focused on working with good directors and doing good material. I didn’t necessarily want to be the main character in these movies. I just wanted to learn and have fun and explore things I haven’t been able to.” What she’s discovered is it’s a lot harder to do a love scene than a big-action stunt because love scenes require revealing emotions. Despite how she may appear on screen, Alba says she has never been an extremely confident person. “Ten years ago, I was more worried about making everyone around me happy and concerned about whether people liked me or not because I was always the new kid,” Alba says. “Now I just don’t care. I’m really easy going. If hoity-toity Hollywood people don’t like me, I don’t care. I care about my family mostly, my friends, and that’s it.”

Celine Dion coming back to Vegas for 3-year stint By OSKAR GARCIA Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Celine Dion is returning to the Las Vegas Strip in 2011 to begin a three-year run at Caesars Palace. The Grammy award-winning singer announced Wednesday she’ll return to the 4,300-seat Colosseum, home of her previous show, “A New Day.” It grossed more than $400 million and was seen by nearly 3 million fans over five years before closing in December 2007. The new show begins March 15, 2011, with tickets for the first 54 performances going on sale Friday. Officials say ticket prices will range from $55 to $250 before taxes and fees. Dion says the new show will feature songs ranging from timeless classics to fan favorites, with a concept incorporating the romance of classic movies. “It’s going to be a very beautiful show,

and I think we’ll be raising the bar higher than we’ve ever done before,” Dion said in a statement. “There’ll be some truly wonderful moments.” The 41-year-old Canadian singer spent a year on an international tour after her previous Las Vegas show ended, and plans to spend the year before her Sin City return with her family. Dion is the youngest of 14 children in a musical family. She sang publicly for the first time at age 5, and released her first two albums simultaneously when she was 13. Dion has since sold more than 200 million albums worldwide and won five Grammy awards. Two songs recorded by Dion have won Academy Awards for best original song, including the title song of “Beauty and the Beast” and “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic.

2K Games/The Anniston Star

In ‘Bioshock 2,’ genetically modified warriors battle for dominance of an undersea city called Rapture.

2K Games’ rapturous return to ‘BioShock’ By LOU KESTEN Associated Press

Rapture used to be a nice place to live. That is, if you didn’t mind being at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. And putting up with the occasional rants of its megalomaniacal founder, Andrew Ryan. That was before the mutants took over, though, and by the time we learned about Rapture — in the 2007 video game BioShock — the city was a wreck, its art deco architectural wonders largely reduced to rubble. In BioShock 2 (2K Games, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99), which takes place 10 years later, Rapture has degenerated further into chaos. The sea has reclaimed much of the property, the mutant “splicers” have gotten more powerful and Ryan is long gone. So, too, is BioShock lead designer Ken Levine, who walked away from his creation before publisher 2K Games started talking sequel. While Part Two was inevitable, given the commercial and critical success of the original, many fans have been dreading the Levine-free follow-up, fearing the franchise’s devolution into just another series of mindless shooters. Happily, however, Rapture appears to be in good hands. New creative director Jordan Thomas, who devel-

oped one of the most memorable sequences in BioShock, maintains the nerve-racking claustrophobia of the underwater metropolis — and expands on its political conundrums. Ryan’s Ayn Rand-inspired freemarket philosophy has been undermined by Dr. Sofia Lamb, who urges Rapture’s underclass to join in collective effort. (Ryan himself saw Lamb as a “Bolshevik.”) There are stirrings of a religious cult, symbolized by images of butterflies. And there is a mystery surrounding the abduction of girls from the surface to serve as “Little Sisters.” The Little Sisters had an essential role in the first BioShock, mining a vital mutagen called ADAM from corpses, and they were protected by metalencased behemoths called Big Daddies. In BioShock 2, you are a Big Daddy — but your Little Sister has been taken away, and you need to find out why. The new game opens up some previously unseen neighborhoods of Rapture, including its slum, Pauper’s Drop, and its red-light district, Siren Alley. BioShock 2 doesn’t radically revise the formula of its award-winning predecessor. Rather, it’s a beautifully executed, smartly paced sequel that left me looking forward to future visits to Rapture. Three-and-a-half stars out of four.

Be their guest By Summer Hunt

It’s the age-old story of boy meets girl. That is, if said boy happens to be under an unfortunate spell that has turned him into a hideous beast. Jacksonville State University’s drama department will take on this timeless tale better known as Beauty and the Beast beginning on Feb. 18, under the direction of seasoned musical master Eric Traynor. No stranger to the stage, Traynor directed the past three musicals at JSU, including last year’s spring production of Sweeney Todd — a far cry from singing teacups and animated tableware. “It’s a complete 180 degrees from Sweeney,” Traynor said. “You have to maintain a contrast with shows to keep interest up.” Not to mention that this gentle Disney classic is a little (OK, a lot) more kid-friendly than last year’s dark, murderladen musical. “It’s also important to us to make sure that we have offerings for everyone,” Traynor said. “And there are going to be a lot of kids that come to Beauty and the Beast that weren’t recommended to see Sweeney Todd slash throats while Mrs. Lovett grinds them up into pies.” Quite the 180 indeed. While this year’s musical is so different from the previous, Traynor assures that the stage production of Beauty has little to no deviations from the beloved children’s movie. “The music is the same, the characters are all there,” he said. “It’s written by Disney folk and was their first animated film to make it to the stage. Essentially, everything audiences loved about the original, you’ll see in the play as well.” Before you write off the show as just a carbon copy of the movie, though, think again. Traynor said he purposely did not watch the film to be sure that it had his own personal touch. “We didn’t try to imitate it at all,” Traynor said. “You can’t copy animation, or even big Broadway. They have millions.” As for JSU? Not so much. “I wanted to make sure that I focused on the story, and the humor,” he said. “And I think we’ve done that.” And while all the usual suspects will be onstage, each performer brings a bit of self to the task at hand.

JSU’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ sure to enchant audiences

much better than just watching an exhausted old DVD — or for those of us who watched Beauty and the Beast the first time around, a VHS tape. “We want people to enjoy the theater experience, enjoy being a part of the action,” Traynor said. Part of that experience is seeing the original costumes, designed and produced by Freddy Clements and Randall Blades in the costume shop, aided by stitching students. Add in an impressive set devised by department head Carlton Ward, and you’ve got a show that’s sure not to disappoint. Beauty and the Beast opens on the main stage at the Ernest Stone Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Feb.18 at 7 p.m. The show continues Feb. 18-20 and 25-27 at 7 p.m. and Feb. 21 and 28 at 2 p.m., with an additional afternoon show Feb. 27 at 1 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for senior citizens and JSU personnel, and $10 for students and military. Paid reservations are strongly suggested. Reserve your ticket by calling the JSU Box Office at 256-782-5648. Mastercard, Visa and Discover are accepted, along with personal checks and cash.

Special to The Star

Sophomore Caleb Clark will be taking on the part of the jaded and confused Beast. He said he’s been feeling the pressure while playing the title character in such a well-known and adored story. “It’s definitely a challenge to take on a role that comes with so many people’s expectations and preconceived ideas about how the (part) is to be played, including your own,” Clark said. “But it’s also a dream come true.” Clark said the cast and crew are all working together to create a pleasant balance of old and new. Choreographer Dewayne Barrett has helped the performers to achieve that balance by combining the original score with lively movement that Traynor said is clever and really fun to watch. “Dewayne is amazing,” Traynor said. “He’s doing an incredible job with people who can move, but who aren’t necessarily dancers.” In addition to putting a fresh spin on a long-standing favorite, Traynor also said Beauty and the Beast will be a treat for both children and adults alike.

“There’s so much fun stuff going on onstage,” he said. “It’s G-rated fun, yes, but there’s a whole lot to laugh at.” Senior Brianna Abel agreed that there is truly something for everyone. “While parents will enjoy the sweet love story, children will undoubtedly get caught up in the colorful excitement provided by a talented group of teapots, townsfolk and household objects,” she said. Abel, who has been involved with theater since she was in high school, said she is thrilled to be playing the role of Belle. She said she identifies with the bookish Belle, having felt “odd” as a child due to her love for reading. “I’m so thankful for the opportunity to play my favorite Disney princess,” she said. “The chance to embody the spunky personality of one of my role models is an experience that will stay with me forever.” Going to see a JSU theater production isn’t just about the show, either. Sitting in a seat at Ernest Stone Center and watching the action play out before your eyes in real time is

Fans delighted by DeGeneres’ ‘Idol’ debut By DERRIK J. LANG Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Ellen DeGeneres hit the right notes with American Idol viewers. Fans took to the Internet to express their pleasant surprise over the 52-year-old funnylady’s debut as the singing competition’s fourth judge. DeGeneres assumed her judging panel post for Tuesday’s episode chronicling the first round of “Hollywood Week,” the cutthroat post-audition phase in which 181 contestants will be narrowed down to 24 semifinalists. The majority of folks posting about DeGeneres on Twitter praised her performance. Some said they were only tuning in for DeGeneres, but not everyone was a devotee. A denim ensemble worn by Degeneres, also host of The Ellen Degeneres Show, was mocked by a few tweeters. When Fox announced that DeGeneres, an Emmy winner with no formal music experience, would be the new judge last September, fans were divided over the unlikely replacement for Paula Abdul, the sugary sweet pop singer who judged Idol since it debuted in 2002 then left amid contract negotiations after the eighth season ended last year. “Ellen completely met my expectations,” said Dave Della Terza, founder of VoteForTheWorst.com, which encourages viewers to champion bad — but entertaining — singers. “She was trying way too hard. Her critiques weren’t funny because no one wants to see a standup act at the judges’ table.” But Andy Dehnart, editor of the popular reality TV blog realityblurred.com and a lecturer at Stetson University, said DeGeneres seemed “more polished and on-point than the people who’ve been sitting at that table for eight years.” DeGeneres is on the judging panel alongside Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi. “Ellen DeGeneres keeps surprising us,” he said. “She excels as a talk show host, and if she keeps up what she did tonight, she’ll easily establish herself as the best judge.” As expected, DeGeneres’ critiques were punctuated with humor, but she didn’t hold back the cruelties either. She joked something seemed wrong with a beatboxer’s microphone — just before sending him home. An admittedly drowsy DeGeneres later informed one dull singer that the performance “almost put me right out.” DeGeneres and the other judges were wowed by several guitar-playing singers during Tuesday’s episode. DioGuardi dubbed quirky 24-year-old musician Andrew Garcia’s rendition of “Straight Up” from former judge Abdul “genius” while DeGeneres called 24-year-old sales representative Jannell Wheeler’s version of “American Boy” by Estelle “amazing, amazing.” Other guitar players who advanced in the competition included 20-year-old sandwich maker Lilly Scott, who crooned Ella Fitzgerald’s “Lullaby Of Birdland,” and brawny 26-year-old personal trainer Michael Lynche, who announced his wife was going into labor with their first child before launching into John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change.” DeGeneres’ addition comes at a time of change for the aging Fox franchise, which is produced by 19 Entertainment and FremantleMedia North America. Cowell is leaving at the end of the current season to judge and executive produce an American version of The X Factor, a talent show he created in Britain. DeGeneres didn’t let Cowell off for the move. “So this is it, huh?” she whispered to him after joining the panel. “I come on, you leave.”

Barkley still throwing darts after 10 years on TNT By CHARLES ODUM Associated Press

Michael Becker/Associated Press

New ‘American Idol’ judge Ellen DeGeneres is hitting the right note with viewers.

more online • Official ‘American Idol’ Web site: http://www.americanidol.com/

Several names have been bandied about as potential Cowell replacements — Oscar-winning actor-singer Jamie Foxx, shock jock Howard Stern, as well as music executives Tommy Mottola, Guy Oseary and Jimmy Iovine. But Fox and the show’s producers have not announced a replacement for the acerbic British judge.

ATLANTA — The camera lights fade, but there’s no “off” switch for Charles Barkley on the set of TNT’s Inside the NBA. Barkley is always on, even when he relaxes with fellow analyst Kenny Smith and host Ernie Johnson in a room where they watch NBA games and other programming on a wall of flat screen TVs. Many of Barkley’s on-air observations, jokes and insults are given test runs — sprinkled with profanity. Conversations from the viewing room carry over onto the set. “Charles just has to watch his language a little more,” Johnson said. “It’s like we just happen to be on the air.” Exchanges a little bit on the salty side are second nature to those who have worked with Barkley for a decade on Inside the NBA, which has moved to Dallas for this week for Sunday’s NBA All-Star game. Johnson said the group’s spontaneity drives the show. “The best advice my dad ever gave me about broadcasting was just be yourself,” said Johnson, the son of former longtime Atlanta Braves broadcaster Ernie Johnson Sr. “That’s all Charles is. He’s being himself. He entertains. It’s like he doesn’t even have to try. “He likes to have fun and that’s exactly what he is on the air. There is never a point where he has to say ’Now I have to go on TV and be the Chuckster.’ It’s who he is.” Barkley, in turn, says that after a decade of work on TNT, he trusts his employers. He says TNT had his back one year ago when he kept his job — after a two-month hiatus — following a DUI arrest in Scottsdale, Ariz. He says the Turner cable network also earned his trust by giving him the freedom to talk about more than basketball. “What it did was it let me know that I can trust the people that I work for,” he said. Trust also comes with success. Inside the NBA has won five Emmys for best studio show. Johnson has won two Emmys for best host. It has become a much-discussed show among NBA players. “They’re good. They’re really good,” said Jamal Crawford of the Atlanta Hawks. “For NBA players, it’s definitely must-see TV. I think every NBA player watches it.”

The granddaddy of reality shows pits ‘heroes’ against ‘villains’ in latest round By Rick Bentley McClatchy Newspapers

LOS ANGELES — The battle lines have been drawn for the 20th edition of CBS’ bug-eating, backstabbing, millionairemaking Survivor. Twenty former contestants are back and divided into two camps: heroes and villains. Of course, the villains don’t believe they deserve the devilish tag. Russell Hantz, whose mission was to make life on Survivor: Somoa a hellish experience, argues all he did was play the game “If you play the game socially, you’re lucky if you get to the end. If you play the game strategically, you will yourself to the end. That’s what I did. If it had only been a social game it

catch it on television Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains 7 p.m. Thursday CBS 42 would not have lasted past the first season because it would have been as boring as hell,” Hantz says over loud music on the CBS soundstage, at the moment tropical-themed for a party featuring more than 200 former Survivor players. The villains also include Tyson Apostol, Survivor: Tocantins; Randy Bailey, Survivor: Gabon; Sandra DiazTwine, Survivor: Pearl

Islands; Danielle Dilorenzo, Survivor: Panama; Jerri Manthey, Survivor: The Australian Outback; Robert Mariano, Survivor: Marquesas; Parvati Shallow, Survivor: Cook Islands; Benjamin “Coach” Wade of Survivor: Tocantins; and Courtney Yates, Survivor: China. There’s not been a shiftier lot on the high seas since Blackbeard’s pirates. Manthey, who wickedly played her way through Survivor: The Australian Outback, set the villain bar high in the second edition of the show. She says she doesn’t mind being on the troublemaker team. “I learned a long time ago to embrace the villainess title. I feel honored to be called the very first villainess of reality TV,” Manthey says. “But I question how a person is given the villain title versus the hero title because there is a lot of gray area there. I don’t think I was always the villain and had some heroic moments. “But you can’t be on both teams. You’ve got to pick a side.” The most valuable lesson Manthey learned from her previous Survivor experience was to keep her mouth shut. She says she plans to do whatever it takes to win. Every villain needs a hero and this game has 10. They include Rupert Boneham of Survivor: Pearl Islands, James Clement, Survivor: China; Colby Donaldson, Survivor: The Australian Outback; Cirie Fields, Survivor: Panama; Amanda Kimmel, Survivor: China; Jessica “Sugar” Kiper, Survivor: Gabon; Stephenie Lagrossa, Survivor: Palau; James “JT” Thomas Jr., Survivor: Tocantins; Tom

Westman, Survivor: Palau; and Candice Woodcock, Survivor: Cook Islands. The gentlemanly ways of Texan Colby Donaldson made him a darling of Survivor: The Australian Outback and one of the heroes. (The contestants weren’t told their labels until they got to the location.) “I don’t see myself as a hero. Maybe I’m a good guy versus a bad guy because I’ve tried to play the game with some integrity,” Donaldson says. He may be classified a hero, but Donaldson’s got a little revenge in his heart. He wants to make up for his poor performance in the Survivor: All-Stars edition, in which he was the fifth player sent home. “I wanted to go back and prove I could still compete with the young bucks,” Donaldson. “It was brutal on me trying to keep up.” And he means that both physically and mentally. Because this is the cream of the Survivor crop, there’s no flying under the radar. The game starts aggressively and escalates with each episode. There’s one notable name missing from the villains list: Jon “Johnny Fairplay” Dalton from Survivor: Pearl Islands, who told competitors his grandmother died when actually she was well and healthy. Series host Jeff Probst said Dalton’s not on the show because they want players and “not quitters,” a reference to Dalton’s self-imposed departure from Survivor: Micronesia.
