hey don’t call ’em sexagenarians for nothing. During his security shift at a local gay bar, a police sergeant encountered a 64-year-old man who got punched for doing a little old-fashioned grabassing. The man explained he’d been throttled on the dance floor by a person he described — ever so specifically — as a younger man with brown hair. The sergeant wrote, “I went back into the bar … and based on the vague description, was not able to find him. I did speak with several exiting patrons who stated that the man who got punched was grabbing a young male’s buttocks.” The man got upset and demanded the sergeant’s name and badge number, and stated “that he knew Mayor Kasim Reed, and was going to have me fired,” the sergeant wrote.

SIBLING SMACKDOWN: Upon returning

from the grocery store, a 20-year-old woman said her brother freaked out and punched her in the face. Why? Because she didn’t buy him any snacks. The brother left their apartment before police arrived. The woman refused medical attention — but I bet she learned her lesson about not bringing home a few bags of chips.

STUPID MOVE OF THE WEEK: At his

home on South Colonial Homes Drive, a 36-year-old man said he purchased two Mac computers from a man in a black Mercedes. Once Mac daddy had driven off, the man said he opened the computer boxes and realized they contained nothing but paper. Der.

WORKING MOM: A man walked into a police

precinct and said his 4-year-old daughter was left home alone while her mother allegedly went out hooking. He said the mother called him from jail and said she’d been arrested for prostitution. He immediately went to the mother’s home and picked up the child. Police filed a report and advised the man to get in touch with DFCS.

BURNT LEFTOVERS: At the start of his shift, a local police officer got the keys to a patrol car and proceeded to do a standard search of the vehicle. Along with a few nickels, the officer discovered a charred Georgia license plate shoved beneath the passenger seat. He turned it in to police property. Items in the Blotter are taken from actual Atlanta police reports. The Blotter Diva compiles them and puts them into her own words.

For every employed illegal alien deported, we will have one more job to employ a citizen. I think it’s time to deport about 12 to 14 million illegals.” — “frankabowers”

COMMENTS ON LAST WEEK’S COLUMN: More at clatl.com/think

Deal: A real upgrade over the last guy Back in early 2009, a Democratic legislator told me he was concerned about rumors that then-Congressman Nathan Deal was planning to jump into the race for governor. At the time, Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine was the self-proclaimed GOP front-runner, yet few believed he could beat ex-Gov. Roy Barnes in a general election. But Deal was different, the Democrat warned. “He’s not one of these ideological yahoos,” I was told. “He’s a serious guy.”

Scott Henry NEWS EDITOR Well, now that this serious guy has been our governor for a month, I admit to being cautiously optimistic that, our lousy economy aside, Georgia is headed in a better direction than it has in a while. And not just because I might soon be able to buy a bottle of bourbon on Sunday — although let’s be careful not to underestimate the near-biblical magnitude of that change. Now, don’t get me wrong. This newspaper endorsed Barnes for governor and still believes he was the better choice, but that’s heavily litigated river water under the bridge right now. Which reminds me that, just last week, we ran an article about how Atlanta officials and the state are working in partnership to plan a massive reservoir project on city-owned property in Dawson County. It’s too early to say whether the project will happen, or even if it’s the best solution for the region’s water problems. But it’s a good sign that Deal, in stark contrast to his ample-posteriored predecessor, is looking to get shit done. And when’s the last time Georgia and its capital city worked together on anything? At a recent luncheon, Deal predicted success for the state’s bid to snare federal funding to dredge the Savannah River, allowing Georgia’s main seaport to handle more freight traffic, leading to economic growth statewide. But this wasn’t just empty talk. Deal cited his personal friendship with U.S. Transportation Secretary

OPINIONS • POINTS OF VIEW • RANTS

Mr. Mayor, here’s your report card

M

ayor Kasim Reed’s got a fair amount to show for little more than one year spent in City Hall. There’s also some work to do if the mayor wants to not follow his predecessor Shirley Franklin’s footsteps and watch glowing praise devolve into harsh headlines. Reed, a former state lawmaker who somehow managed to rocket from third to first in a bloody 2009 mayoral contest, has followed through with many of his campaign-trail promises. He found cash — some of it federal funding — to hire more than 259 out of an eye-popping 750 new Atlanta police officers and bump up their pay. He reopened 16 out of 33 proposed rec centers to offer at-risk young people after-school activities, subsidized with private donations. And he recruited — and convinced to stay another year — a sharp chief operating officer from the private sector who, by most accounts, serves as a good counterbalance to Reed’s persistent politicking. And let’s not forget his leasing of Lakewood Fairgrounds to a movie studio outfit that will earn the city hundreds of thousands of dollars each year, as well as his successful lobbying efforts for nearly $48 million in downtown streetcar funding. Reed’s crowning achievement came from channeling his inner political animal. In just over a year, Reed’s done more to improve Atlanta’s relations with the state than another mayor could likely do in eight. Gold Dome officials who had been indifferent to the capital city’s woes or outright hostile to its needs have welcomed Reed into their chambers and praised him as one of the country’s great leaders. Reed helped twist former colleagues’ arms to finally pass transportation funding legislation and chaperoned GOP heavies to Washington, D.C., while they lobby

Ray LaHood, a former Congressional colleague, as well as efforts by Mayor Kasim Reed to open other doors for state officials in Democratically controlled Washington. Isn’t it refreshing to have elected leaders who possess clout and connections that don’t end at the state line? There have been other encouraging sig-

for federal funding to deepen the Savannah Port. Add to that his own sit-downs with the Obama administration — he visited the White House at least three times to pitch the streetcar — and you see how having a well-connected mayor has its benefits. That’s not to say year one was one without its low points. Last year’s selection of Police Chief George Turner, whose name did not appear on the list of three police chief finalists selected by a panel of civic leaders and community activists, gave the appearance the process was rigged from the outset. It also signalled (whether intentional or not) that Reed is more than willing to flex his muscle to get his way. Reed’s hardball political style can be overly competitive, and this approach to running city government has resulted in a failure to build on the local level the same feel-good consensus he forged with state leaders. The upcoming city pension reform (a cost-cutting measure that will help the city avoid insolvency) will further test the relationship between an at-times prickly boss and his employees. It’s also disappointing that, since taking office, Reed has done little to build relations with Council members. Our wish list for the city — less crime, the reclaiming of abandoned homes, the construction of the Beltline transit loop and the eradication of those damned potholes — comes with a heavy price tag, and many of Reed’s big-picture proposals could translate into savings or revenue to pay for a city with a higher quality of life. It’s important for the mayor to champion a revamped and resurgent Atlanta post-economic downturn, but we hope Reed’s second year will also include solutions to those hyper-local, streetlevel, often unsexy problems. C

nals from the governor’s office. Deal’s surprisingly even-handed delegation of oversight for the troubled Atlanta Public Schools in tapping House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams to keep him updated. His suggestion that Georgia’s criminal justice policies need reform. Of course, the state budget process has only

just started and plenty of tough decisions lie ahead, but it’s heartening that state House and Senate leaders and the governor aren’t at each others’ throats, as in years past. Now, if Gov. Deal can only avoid indictment for his many dodgy business dealings, Georgia might yet be in pretty decent shape. C

Jamina Job: Resources director, Synchronicity Theatre Age: 28 Relationship status: Engaged Whether on stage, manning the box office or balancing the books for the theater group where she works, Jamina lives for the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd. Her green eyes and high cheekbones make her a show-stopper, but she’s no drama queen. In fact, her greatest passion is her 2-year-old daughter, Zoe. “She’s smart, funny and a great mom,” says her nominator, “all of which makes her even sexier!” What band Were you obsessed With When you Were 14? Britney Spears. What’s your guiltiest pleasure? Hardcore Dirty South rap music. What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? I was waiting for the train on MARTA and this guy walks up to me and gets a little too close for comfort and holds up his phone and says, “Can I put it in?” He was obviously talking abut my phone number, but he just wasn’t getting it in. What’s the best Way for a customer to hit on you? If a patron or anyone walks up to me and says, “You’re beautiful,” and has no ulterior motives, doesn’t want anything, but just compliments me and walks way, that’s the best way to hit on a girl. Who Would play you in the movie of your life? Anne Hathaway. She’s quirky enough to play me. With Whom Would you like to play truth or dare? Mayor Kasim Reed. I think politicians are the most interesting people in public life — more than movie stars — because they’re putting on such acts. have you ever been dumped? if so, What Was the reason? I have been dumped and it’s probably because I was very high maintenance. What’s your pettiest relationship deal-breaker? For at least the first three months of the relationship, you have to pay for dinner. You cannot make me pay for anything. describe your relationship to exercise? It’s on-again, off-again. Right now it’s on — no, it’s off! Maybe next week we’ll go back on. What silly thing are you most vain about? My boobs. I think I’ve got a pretty good rack. Why do you think someone nominated you for the lust list? I don’t think that she expected me to win, so I think it was almost an act of protest or a joke, so either way it backfired. 18 ❘ FEBRUARY 10-FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ❘ clatl.com

Lance Job: Bar manager, TOP FLR Age: 25 Relationship status: Single Just when his self-mocking bluster suggests an uncomplicated, fun-loving dude, Lance says something that forces a re-evaluation. Consider this: At GSU, he minored in religion — even though he’s not religious. “I thought it was interesting,” he says with a shrug. But back to his looks. One of his many nominators said it best: “Eyes like a fucking angel. The softest most sultry lips I’ve ever seen on a man. The fashion sense of a postmodern newsboy. The way he touches you, even just his comforting pat on the back, could melt a diamond.” Just don’t tell him he looks like John Krasinski from “The Office.” He gets enough of that. What band Were you obsessed With When you Were 14? The Pixies, easily. What’s the last thing that made you cry? Oh, God, the movie that makes me cry every time is How Green Was My Valley. I weep through the entire movie — it’s just like four hours of weeping. What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? A middle-aged woman said I looked like Brendan Fraser from Encino Man, then asked me to join a threesome. is there a draWback to being attractive? It makes it really difficult when you’re at work and you have people fawning on you. What Would be the title of your autobiography? I’m Sorry About That. But Not Really. I’m Not Sorry. What personal attribute are you a sucker for? Little small lisps, like a weird little speech impediment. I think it’s adorable. have you ever stolen a friend’s girlfriend? God, no. I like having sex, but I like having friends more.

Myk Job: Server, Local Three Age: 28 Relationship status: Single When we got the chance to chat up Myk, we’d have never guessed he’d been up until 3 a.m. practicing with his band. Bursting with energy, brimming with confidence, this easy-on-theeyes musician glides through rooms, laughs with his whole body and actually seems to give a damn when he asks how you’re doing. The well-toned Vinings resident is coy on which gender catches his fancy. (“I’m an open spiritual being,” he says. “I’m open to love.”) Our advice: Stop by, show your sensitive side, and, even if you don’t get his digits, you’ll leave swooning. What’s your guiltiest pleasure? Eating. Twinkies. It’s bad. It’s really bad. on Which reality tV shoW should you be cast? I’d love to be on “The Real World.” What do you Wish someone Would hurry up and inVent? A cure for heartbreak.

Shana Job: Store manager, 42° South Age: 25 Relationship status: Has a boyfriend Shana earned her subtle but charming accent the hard way, having grown up in towns across Georgia, Mississippi and South Carolina. Now in Atlanta after earning a degree in international affairs, she’s learning the business ropes as manager of a reputable, um, tobacco supply store in Little Five Points. She’s also into the local music scene, dating a member of a local band named after an assassin and occasionally spinning garage and psychedelia at 529 as DJ Patty Hearst. What band Were you obsessed With When you Were 14? No Doubt. on Which reality tV shoW should you be cast? “American Pickers.” It’s just these two guys who go and pick antiques and stuff. They don’t really have guests — but they should. What’s the last good book you read? Marching Powder by Rusty Young. It’s kind of like a cult backpacker’s book. He was a cocaine smuggler that got stuck in a Bolivian jail. It’s really interesting. What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? “My name is Chance, will you take a chance on me?” if you Were a groupie, Who Would be the object of your obsession? I’m really into the Black Angels right now, but I don’t know that they need a groupie. What’s your least faVorite thing about atlanta? The city’s graffiti task force. What’s the Weirdest thing in your house? We’re kind of hoarders. Collections of old radios, collections of old turntables — we just have a lot of old, nonworking things. 20 ❘ FEBRUARY 10-FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ❘ clatl.com

What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? I’ve gotten a lot of comments about coffee like: “I like my coffee like I like my men.” But they’re cute; that’s what makes them pick-up lines. if you Were a groupie, Who Would be the object of your obsession? I’m incredibly obsessed with Brandy. She’s beautiful and incredibly talented. She is an inspiration, musically. What’s your pettiest relationship deal-breaker? I’m not a petty guy. It would have to be a lot bigger of an issue, because we all have our own petty flaws. Bad breath? Is that petty? That’s big. What celebrity Would you like to be stuck in an eleVator With? Will Smith. I’d love to pick his brain and learn how he is doing it. He is such a successful guy. Where does most of your disposable income go? I’m saving up for a car right now, so that’s where it goes. Or clothes and food. I’ve got a big girl inside of me and she is constantly screaming to be fed. What’s the most romantic place in atlanta? Piedmont Park at night — I like the hilly area where the trees are. It would be nice to look up at the stars and be taken over by the world around you and forget about everything else that we call life. What’s your character flaW you’d most like to fix? I’m a very extreme guy. I’m very outgoing, sexual, crazy. I would like to bring it back and do everything at like a six, not a 10 — even though sex at a 10 is pretty good.

Sidney Job: Owner, Salon Vagabond Age: 39 Relationship status: Has a boyfriend If you were to judge Sidney by his exterior, you’d probably get him all wrong. Covered in tattoos and confident in his rakish, steampunk style, Sidney’s most attractive attributes — his soulful eyes and philosophical nature — take a bit more time to uncover. “Sidney is a bit of an anomaly,” says his nominator. “Gay but straight looking, tattooed from head to toe but spiritual and earthy, graceful with both words and scissors yet charmingly clumsy.” It gets better: “He’s the kind of guy who is attractive for knowing exactly who he is, and somehow affirming who you are through a transformative haircutting and coloring experience.” He should charge extra for that. What band Were you obsessed With When you Were 14? The Cure. What’s the last thing that made you cry? Steel Magnolias. I cry every time. What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? I can’t remember the lamest, but the other day someone asked what sign I was. We talked for 10 minutes, and they asked if I was a Gemini. I said yes. They said, “Nice talking to you,” and walked away. What’s the best Way for a customer to hit on you? Definitely don’t rub my leg. That’s happened. I draw my boundary at that. if you Were a groupie, Who Would be the object of your obsession? It would have to be Willie Nelson. is there a draWback to being attractive? Attractive people struggle with aging more than other people. People whose identity is caught up in how attractive they are don’t respond to aging well. name one thing you’ve stolen.

Sara Job: Bartender, Leon’s Full Service Age: 30 Relationship status: Has a boyfriend Soft-spoken Sara spent her teen years as a star student in Marietta before heading off to Manhattan to study fashion design. Along the way, she developed an interest in classic cocktails, which gives Atlantans a double bonus: tasty beverages and a cutie-pie behind the bar. When she’s not mixing — or sipping — drinks, Sara enjoys knitting, reading, riding her bike, going to shows and practicing her sick Hula-Hoop skills. She doesn’t watch TV, eat meat or smoke, and she seems to enjoy maintaining an air of mystery. Just ask her about her ice pick collection — if you dare. What’s the last thing that made you cry? This is embarrassing, but I recently quit smoking and on the second day I was like, “Why am I doing this? It’s so hard,” and I had a little tear because I wanted a cigarette. Where do you take out-of-toWn visitors? I think most of my out-of-town visitors are in bands usually, so we’ll go to 529. What’s the first album you bought With your oWn money? Nick Cave’s Let Love In from Wax n’ Facts. That’s the first record I ever bought new. Who Would play you in the movie of your life? Almost every day at work people are like, “You look like Zooey Deschanel,” and I’m like, “It’s probably the bangs.” What’s your least favorite thing about atlanta? My scooter was stolen off my porch where it was locked up and that made me want to leave. I cried all day. What’s the Weirdest thing in your house? I have an ice pick collection, like 18 or 19. I bought one, and then my boyfriend was trying to find a cool present for me and found a lot of vintage ice picks on eBay. have you ever been dumped? if so, What Was the reason? I’ve never been dumped because I always dump other people. I should have been dumped, but I guess I always get to it first. What’s your Wackiest piece of personal trivia? I have a secret talent and it is Hula-Hooping. I can Hula-Hoop from my neck down to my waist down to my knees. What silly thing are you most vain about? It’s stupid, but probably my eyebrows. I mean, you can’t even see them because I have bangs. I wish they were bigger. Why do you think someone nominated you for the lust list? I serve high-gravity beer and cocktails all night, it’s dim and they’re a little tipsy. Maybe they thought it was a good idea after a few drinks. 24 ❘ FEBRUARY 10-FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ❘ clatl.com

William Job: Concessions server, Strand Theatre Age: 22 Relationship status: Single Step up to the bar at Marietta’s Strand Theater and see if you can handle the dazzling smile and adorable sweetness of William. Disarmingly nice, refreshingly open and astoundingly handsome, William’s pining for the quirky girl of his dreams. As his nominator points out, he shouldn’t have much trouble: “He is tall, lean, muscular, a dancer, straight, and many would describe him as a perfect piece of chocolate ass.” We’d take him over 3,000 douchebags any day. have you ever been dumped? if so, What Was the reason? This girl broke up with me via text message after I’d come back from winter vacation. No tangible reason. It still hurts. What celebrity Would you like to be stuck in an elevator With? Elisabeth Moss from “Mad Men.” I’ve had a crush on her since she was on “The West Wing” and she gets better with age. What’s the most romantic place in atlanta? I’ll go OTP for this one. The top of Kennesaw Mountain his an absolutely gorgeous view, and a great place for lovers to sit and stare at the sky. What personal attribute are you a sucker for? A funny girl gets me every time. Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, just someone absurd and self-deprecating. I’m very self-conscious, so just a dorky, nerdy girl. What’s your character flaW you’d most like to fix? I get attached rather quickly. When I’m with somebody, in the morning I’m just like, “I wanna be with you forever.” Put up some walls, William. Why do you think someone nominated you for the lust list? My friend was like, “You’re an attractive guy, you’re very sweet, you’re very nice, and I feel like there are 3,000 douchebags in Atlanta who shouldn’t be picked for this and you should.”

E.J.

WhitnEy

Job: Assistant manager, Urban Outfitters Age: 26 Relationship status: Taken, sort of

Job: Stylist, Intrigue Salon Age: 23 Relationship status: Has a boyfriend

Ya know how James Franco got even hotter when you discovered that, underneath the great hair and chiseled features, lay an intellectual? One that’s just as comfortable discussing humanism as he is suggesting Afrobeat records? Same thing with E.J. “He’s not the one to be the center of the party,” his nominator observed. “You will usually see him quietly observing from the sidelines with his green puff jacket and scarf casually thrown over his shoulder.” When he’s not ringing up sales at the Urban Outfitters on Ponce de Leon Avenue, the self-described “book nerd” enjoys reading Proust, Miller and Melville.

When she heard she’d made the Lust List, Whitney thought it must be a mistake — making her that anthropological rarity: the super-cute girl who has no idea how adorable she is. Having grown up in Smyrna, the pixieish Whitney now lives in Kirkwood with her boyfriend, but still works in East Cobb and feels a duty to represent for the ’burbs among snobby intowners. Apart from hair, her life-long obsession is The Wizard of Oz, whose characters appear in a full-sleeve tattoo on her left arm. “Life is like a yellow brick road,” she says, “and everybody’s looking for their Emerald City.”

What’s your standard drink? Jack and Coke. I saw the Lemmy documentary — you know, Lemmy from Motorhead — that’s all he drinks, so I felt in good company. What’s your guiltiest pleasure? I’m a sucker for reality TV. I don’t even own a TV, but when I’m around a TV, I hone in on “Real Housewives.” What’s the last thing that made you cry? I hadn’t talked to my grandma in a while and I called her this past Thanksgiving. It was homesickness. She lives in San Mateo, [Calif.,] where I was born, in the same house she’s lived in for 40-something years. What’s the last good book you read? The Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann. Besides the fact it’s about a twentysomething who comes of age, it’s about a guy who goes to a sanatorium, enters into a world of ideas and opens himself up to different philosophies. What’s the best Way for a customer to hit on you? Ask if something looks good on them. is there a draWback to being attractive? Is there any way to answer this and not sound like a total ass? name one thing you’ve stolen. I used to steal the centerfold band pictures out of magazines when I was a little kid so I could put them on my wall. What’s your sexy-time soundtrack? Something like Slowdive or shoegaze-y stuff. name a Well-regarded band you don’t like. Vampire Weekend. Everything about their sound just annoys the shit out of me. at What bar Would you like to have an open tab? Holeman & Finch. What personal attribute are you a sucker for? When somebody is opinionated, somebody I can have a conversation with who can have a complete thought. 26 ❘ FEBRUARY 10-FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ❘ clatl.com

What’s the last good book you read? I’m reading John Dies at the End by David Wong and it’s pretty awesome. It’s kind of like Ghostbusters, but more sarcastic and drug-induced. What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? I was in a Chickfil-A drive thru. Dude asked me if I was from Tennessee, and I was like, “No.” And he was like, “’Cause you’re the only 10 I see.” And I was like, “That’s awesome! Now gimme my chicken nuggets.” What’s the best Way for a customer to hit on you? Because I’m tattooed and have piercings, I get a lot of guys that assume I’m into dominatrix stuff. They always ask, “What else do you have pierced?” or whatever and that gets creepy. So, just don’t be creepy! is there a draWback to being attractive? Once, when I was a bartender, I had a guy give me pubic hair in a little plastic baggie. What’s your least favorite thing about atlanta? People get snobby. They get too caught up in what they’re doing. Marietta kids are just as cool as Atlanta kids. What’s your sexy-time soundtrack? Team Sleep — the Deftones’ Chino Moreno did it as a side project and recorded it in a basement. name a Well-regarded band you don’t like. Hed PE. I don’t get it. In my group of friends, everyone’s like, “Yeah!” And I’m like, “No!” What celebrity Would you like to be stuck in an elevator With? Anthony Hopkins. He doesn’t get enough recognition. He’s just awesome. Where does most of your disposable income go? I buy CDs a lot. And alcohol — sorry, Mom! have you ever stolen a friend’s boyfriend? Not a boyfriend, but maybe someone that somebody liked — but I can’t help it ’cause I called ’em first.

Cherri Job: Clerk, Intown Ace Hardware Age: 29 Relationship status: Single Cherri might be petite, but don’t say she’s not tough. She plays bass with several local punk and R&B bands and moonlights as a sound tech at Apache Café. And she rocks a mohawk, for Christ’s sake. But Cherri’s tough-girl cred mainly comes from her job at a hardware store, helping greasy plumbers and sweaty contractors find the tools they need. “What makes Cherri so hot,” her nominator says, “is that she knows her way around all sorts of hardware!” Cherri admits, “You have to be a chick who doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty to work there.”

What’s your standard drink? I’m simple, you know, I stick to the PBR. What’s your guiltiest pleasure? Popeye’s chicken. What’s the last good book you read? The Seven Spiritual Laws of Life. What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? I’ve had someone just walk up to me and say, “I need a girlfriend. You want to be my girlfriend?” What’s the first album you bought With your oWn money? I’ve always been pretty broke so I haven’t been able to buy a lot of albums in my life.

28 ❘ FEBRUARY 10-FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ❘ clatl.com

is there a draWback to being attractive? Being a musician and a goodlooking woman with a bass, it took me a long time to earn respect from the male musicians. What’s the Weirdest thing in your house? My red-and-white checkerboard pants hanging on the wall. I have a couple of strange, awkward-looking clothes that I kind of just hang up around my apartment. What’s your sexy-time soundtrack? Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow.” What Would you order for your last meal? Some chicken egg foo young from this Chinese restaurant in St. Louis.

With Whom Would you like to play truth or dare? Snoop Dogg. What celebrity Would you like to be stuck in an elevator With? Joan Jett. Hell yeah, she has a lot of wisdom she can pass down to me. What’s the most romantic place in atlanta? I think Piedmont Park is a pretty romantic place if you get out there when the weather’s good and lay down a blanket. What personal attribute are you a sucker for? Just a big heart. Just a really naturally kind, caring person.

Carmen

Cozmo

Job: Waitress, Publik Draft House Age: 23 Relationship status: Single

Job: Barista, ParkGrounds Age: 22 Relationship status: Has a girlfriend

Carmen is, as she likes to put it, a “walking contradiction.” Tough but soft, strong but endearingly humble, a little goofy but sharply intelligent, this Midtown gal is as surprising as the sideways exclamation birthmark on her right cheek. Oh, and did we mention she has one blue eye and one green? Although she’s immensely approachable, Carmen claims to be guarded when it comes to relationships. As a result, she hasn’t found the right woman, yet. (Sorry boys, you’re just not her thing.) We’re sure there’s someone out there up to the task.

It’s difficult to imagine a guy more easy-going and aw-shucks friendly than Cozmo, who greets his regular coffee shop customers with a hug. “He has that whole tattooed metal boy exterior,” his nominator says, “but I bet he’s a total softy.” With his broad smile, full sleeves and a cascade of dreads spilling out from his cap, he could be taken for a stoner, but don’t ask to share a spliff. Cozmo is straight edge — no drinking, drugs, smoking, meat or promiscuous sex. And hey, what’s up with a cat-owner working at a place that’s practically a doggie day care? “I see enough dogs here,” he explains.

What band Were you obsessed With When you Were 14? I was obsessed with Hanson. I mean it figures — they all look like girls, right? What’s the best Way for a customer to hit on you? I always think it’s cute to write a little note on the receipt, and maybe a number or something, a way to get in contact. Not too forward. What’s the one thing you most hope to accomplish in 2011? Deciding what I want to do with the rest of my life. is there a draWback to being attractive? No. I mean, I don’t see myself as any different than anybody else. I think everybody is attractive in their own way, so I don’t think there’s a way to answer that. What’s your pettiest relationship deal-breaker? When someone can’t determine the difference between “their” and “they’re” in a text message or wherever. With Whom Would you like to play truth or dare? Angelina Jolie. I’m sure she has some really good secrets. What celebrity Would you like to be stuck in an elevator With? Mila Kunis or Megan Fox. What’s the most romantic place in atlanta? Is it really cliche if I say the top of the Westin in the Sun Dial? at What bar/restaurant Would you like to have an open tab? Bacchanalia. What personal attribute are you a sucker for? I love sarcasm. I know that’s usually a turn off for most people, but if you’re witty enough to use sarcasm, I think we’d get along well. What’s your character flaW you’d most like to fix? Trust issues. What silly thing are you most vain about? I can’t not wear eyeliner. 30 ❘ FEBRUARY 10-FEBRUARY 16, 2011 ❘ clatl.com

What band Were you obsessed With When you Were 14? Minor Threat. What’s your guiltiest pleasure? Obsessive motorcycle purchasing. What’s the last thing that made you cry? The Lion King when I was a kid. I’d probably cry again now, I’m not gonna lie. What’s the lamest pick-up line anyone’s used on you? Once, I had a girl at a hardcore show tell me she wasn’t used to venues like that, so we should go to my house because it would be more comfortable for her. What’s the one thing you most hope to accomplish in 2011? I’d like my Vespa to stay on for more than a few days. What’s your least favorite thing about atlanta? It’s very cliquish. People could be nicer to people they don’t know — some Southern hospitality or something. What’s the Weirdest thing in your house? A Hello Kitty toaster. It toasts her face on the bread. That’s pretty weird. There’s a motorcycle in my living room. have you ever been dumped? if so, What Was the reason? I got dumped by the same girl two years in a row on my birthday. I don’t really know why, but … yeah, because she was Satan. What Would you order for your last meal? Probably something not vegetarian, ribs or something ridiculously unhealthy. It wouldn’t matter anymore. What’s your Wackiest piece of personal trivia? I got a really big pirate ship tattoo for my scooter club, Land Pirate Scoot Club. A bunch of us decided all members had to get the tattoo, but only two of us went through with it. What personal attribute are you a sucker for? Lips. Good ones. I’m not too picky.

Sojourner 4th & Swift

These days, our city is teaming with restaurants and bars offering a slate of original cocktails and updated classics, but the drinks menu can sometimes send a veteran barfly into sticker shock. At many of the top watering holes, however, a quick scan of the house-made infusions and exotic ingredients provide an indication of where your hard-earned money is going. At 4th & Swift, for instance, bar manager James Ives’ impressive menu lists such customized concoctions as grapefruit-yuzu shrub, oolong tea-infused vodka and tobacco bitters, all of which are made in house to create flavors that may exist only in his imagination. But lest you suspect Ives of simply throwing eccentric ingredients together for the sheer novelty, you should order the Sojourner, a bourbonbased concoction that expertly blends floral, citrus and herbal notes into a seamless, satisfying whole. It’s one of three cocktails on Ives’ menu that employs Zirbenz Stone Pine Liqueur — he developed a taste for strong alpine liqueurs during a stint in Austria — but he tempers its potentially overpowering flavor by pre-blending it for several days in a bottle with the much-sweeter St. Germain elderflower liqueur. Ives begins the drink by pressing fresh sage in the bottom of a glass with the juice from a lemon quarter. The crushed leaves are discarded and he adds the liquors, along with a house-made simple syrup thickened with gum arabic. The mixture is served straight up in a martini glass, garnished with a whole sage leaf. “I try to make drinks that have a lot of layers and nuance, like a good wine,” Ives says. “With this cocktail, we really achieved the balance we aim for in all our drinks.” The balance of sweet and savory, fruity and herbal, with a slight undertone of citrus, is so successful that it’s nearly impossible to discern any particular ingredient. But don’t wait too long to try one. Ives tries to change up his bar menu every few weeks, trotting out fresh lists of 10 original cocktails and another 10 that rework familiar classics, including — for now — a tobacco-tinged Manhattan. “Our goal is to offer specialty crafted cocktails that pair well with our food and fit the season,” he says. In fact, Ives and his bartenders come up with a cocktail special every day to accompany the list of daily menu specials coming out of 4th & Swift’s kitchen. In other words, there’s a good amount of time, effort and R&D that go into the restaurant’s cocktail selections. That should take some of the sting out the next time you plunk down 12 bucks for a drink. — sCott henry

Truex uses cane syrup with great effect on a duck entrée, turning it here into a gastrique. The sweet/tart sauce works wonders over a jumble of Brussels sprouts, crunchy almonds and sweet dates. This is the Truex we came to love at Repast, rethinking expected dishes and turning them intriguing. His expression here is different, but his style, when he’s allowed to fully explore it, is still recognizable. I still take umbrage with some of Watershed’s prices. Littleneck clams swim in a big bowl of white wine broth, made seductively smoky by bacon. The $15 dish is undoubtedly delicious, but would be far more pleasurable if it were $11. I’ve never understood why the pimento cheese is $9 and I still don’t. The classics have, as promised, changed little. Salmon croquettes hearken back to a time when dinner was less flashy and more comforting. The moist Watershed HHH✩✩ disks of fish are lovely, light, almost lemony, and not quite intriguing enough to keep my interest through a whole entrée portion. There are no doubt dishes from the Peacock era that deserve real estate on this menu, not because they comfort longtime customers, but because Truex loves them so much he can’t bear to see them go. Or even better, because he wants to make 406 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., them his own in some Decatur. 404-378-4900. www.watershedrestaurant.com. way.

The dining room, with its shades of blue and beige and seafoam green, is still soothing, its South-meets-chic aesthetic timeless in its appeal. The wine list is stronger than ever, with more subtle and European selections than before. Cocktails could use improvement — girly concoctions are fine, but for a restaurant of this caliber I expect a touch more refinement in the booze department.

NATURAL. AMERICAN. SPIRIT.

Our journey began, as they often do, with little more than an idea – to create a premium cigarette that was free of additives. Once that goal was achieved, our next stop was the creation of earth-friendly growing programs, and then tobacco grown under organic specifications, to lessen our farmers’ impact on the environment. We’re proud to have produced the first cigarette made with organic tobacco.

We continued on to blends that celebrate unique tobaccos. Along the way, we met the caretakers of one of the rarest tobaccos in the world. The centuries-old process of aging Perique tobacco in oak barrels lives on in the unmistakable taste of our Perique blend styles.

And as we met more and more farmers, they inspired us to create our 100% U.S. Grown blend, to support our communities and the environment.

James Camp

y mind was racing. “Be quiet, Cliff,” I said to myself. “Your friends don’t want to know what you really think about a place they like.” But, honestly, I was freaking out. I’d joined my three friends for an impromptu dinner at LongHorn Steakhouse (2430 Piedmont Road, 404-816-6338, www.longhornsteakhouse.com). I don’t even remember the last time I visited LongHorn, but it was at the original restaurant on Peachtree Street, opened by George McKerrow in 1981. His concept — affordable steaks — bloomed into a chain that was ultimately bought by Darden Restaurants in 2007. That’s the company that owns Red Lobster, Olive Garden and Seasons 52, among others. McKerrow went on to open Ted’s Montana Grill with Ted Turner and is a partner with Gerry Klaskala and Ron Martin in Aria and Canoe, so he’s certainly not a stranger to fine dining. I never cared much for the original LongHorn. The taxidermy and the faux Western ambiance — to say nothing of the radio commercials featuring “Flo, the big-haired lady” — were cloying. But I was stunned to see the cloy-trot accelerated to a full gallop at this Darden version of cowpoke heaven. The décor is not intolerable but, like any other Darden property, leaves you feeling like you’re dining inside a toy playhouse. Yeehaw or whatever. (Go ahead, tell me I’m a snob.) What about the food? Steak. Eat the steak and you’ll be fine. Skip everything else. Otherwise, you’ll be in Gooeyville. There’s the “grilled mushroom caps stuffed with white cheddar and herbs … served over a gooey blend of aged cheddar, Parmesan, Monterey Jack, and fontina cheeses.” It’s not that such a dish won’t appeal to the fatloving, midnight-munchy stoner pig in you that might scavenge all the corners of cheese in your refrigerator and melt them together. And granted, the fresh mushrooms were nicely grilled al dente. But, for the love of God, have mercy upon our vascular systems. And, believe me, it doesn’t stop there. A Caesar salad was also literally gooey from too much dressing. I ate about half of it. My entrée was a surf n’ turf riff: “a tender 7 ounce Flo’s Filet paired with garlic and herb crusted jumbo shrimp, fire-grilled on a cedar plank.” That’s big-haired Flo who gives her name to the steak and, just as my friends said, it was far better than the name. I have no complaints. (The steak alone is $18.79.) However, the shrimp were proof that cowboys don’t cook seafood on the campfire. In fact, the shrimp were barely cooked at all — as in more gooey goo. Ugh. Next up, dessert, when gooey is an asset! I ordered the three-sampler plate that included a quite tasty apple cobbler kind of thing, bad New York-style cheesecake and a meh molten chocolate cake “layered with six types of chocolate.” Quite clearly, LongHorn thinks multiple versions of an ingredient — chocolate or cheese — will include something gooey to please everyone. LongHorn is not limited to steak. In fact, the only other thing at the table I thought was pretty good was a friend’s “fresh, hand-cut salmon grilled using our secret bourbon marinade.” It really was better cooked than in many Atlanta restaurants. The next day I bored everyone with an amazed account of my meal. Yes, I was weirded-out, but morbidly curious, too. So I headed to Outback Steakhouse (2145 Lavista Road, 404-636-5110, www.outback.com) for a taste comparison. I went alone because I did not want to risk subjecting more friends to eye rolling and shuddering. There is no other way to put this. It was the worst meal I’ve had in memory. It was so bad that I could not eat most of it and, for reasons

THROW ANOTHER SHRIMP ON THE … OH, NEVER MIND: The sirloin steak with grilled shrimp at Outback Steakhouse

I couldn’t divine, the servers kept pleading with me to take it home in a box. Are they required to eat the leftovers? What did I have? In order to effectively compare, I ordered the restaurant’s sirloin steak with grilled shrimp. A sirloin is not generally as tender a cut as a filet, of course, but why pollute the meat with 17 spices and herbs “from global boutique markets”? Because you get the full range of flavors from bitter and burned to brackish? My three shrimp were, contrary to LongHorn’s, gruesomely overcooked and also overseasoned. Oh. The Caesar salad was even gooier than LongHorn’s. Three bites and I was done. My plate also included mashed potatoes that also must have been imported from a global boutique market six days earlier. They were absolutely dry, reminding me of those plastic molds of food in Japanese restaurants. Dessert! I give the restaurant props for allowing diners to select a mini-portion for about $3. I got the Chocolate Thunder From Down Under — another gooey mess of chocolate and ice cream. I ate all of it! And it wasn’t that “mini.” Both of these restaurants had great staffs. I couldn’t help feeling sorry for them, having to dump this stuff on future arteriosclerosis patients inside playhouses representing a Wild West and an Australian outback that never existed. It bears mention that LongHorn would not even let us photograph their food, insisting that they would supply highly styled PR photos. Fine. Image counts. I’m wearing a holster with a gun next time I go. C cliff.bostock@creativeloafing.com

After 20 years, Atlanta’s Kevin Young publishes Ardency, a book of poems exploring America through the voices of the Amistad rebels

you hear in poems such as “Gutbucket” or “Muzak” or “Honky Tonk” are the work of words, not instruments; of language twostepping with form across the dance floor of a page. Like poets John Berryman or Amiri Baraka before him, Young takes vernacular and musical idioms to their poetic limits. He plays the blues or gospel or jazz as a metaphor, as a way to get at the meaning of his words. His latest book, Ardency: A Chronicle of

the Amistad Rebels, turns to a moment in American history when the origins of blues, jazz and gospel were taking shape. Ardency tells the 19th-century story of the Africans who mutinied the slave ship Amistad, were captured, imprisoned and eventually released back to West Africa in 1842 after a landmark Supreme Court case. Young has crafted an American epic in Ardency, one that captures the horror of slavery without ignoring the

beauty and strength of those who fought and survived it. There is also his own history in this book — a young poet finding his voice through the traditions, stories and songs that came before him. Broken into three sections and an afterword, Ardency recounts the Amistad story through a patchwork of voices: translations of an interpreter; the rebels’ letters from jail; the songs of a choir; and, most significantly, a libretto intoned by the rebellion’s leader Cinque. Ardency might be called operatic since a libretto anchors the book. Gospel music also comes to mind amid the choir’s recurring spirituals. Young, though, has a comparison of his own. “It’s like my Basement Tapes,” he says in an offhand reference to the muchfabled Americana recordings of Bob Dylan and the Band. Young might be referring to the fact that Ardency wasn’t necessarily a project he meant to publish. He started work on the book 20 years ago, while a student at Harvard and a member of the Dark Room Collective, which also included now-acclaimed poets Natasha Trethewey and Major Jackson. The manuscript has followed him since, through a prestigious Stegner Fellowship at Stanford, years teaching at UGA and Indiana University, and eventually to Emory University, where he’s now a professor and curator of the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library. Despite his prolific output over the last two decades — Young has published six collections of poems and edited five others — he says, “I knew pretty early that I didn’t want to rush it. It was the kind of thing that I would show to some people, but it was largely a personal project. I thought maybe it would just end up in a drawer somewhere.” Young discovered the story of the Amistad through the rebels’ letters, which were written shortly after they learned English and while they were still imprisoned. “[The letters] struck me almost as poems in waiting,” he says. “They seemed like terrific writers writing in a new language about a world they didn’t really know but understood all too well. I thought that was really powerful — that tension between what they were saying and what they weren’t saying.” Ardency’s short second section, titled with the pun “Correspondance,” is a sequence of poems drawn from those letters. In “Correspondance,” Young adapts the letters’ tone and unexpected phrases into verse that is just as recognizably his own. In “New Haven,” : Young borrows the run-on syntax of mutineer Kinna’s letter to President John Quincy Adams nd to create a sense of urgency, “We want you to y tell the court that Mendi people no want to go back to New Havana, we no want to be killed. Dear Friend you tell our Judges let us free.” Young makes Cinque’s perspective the focus of Ardency. “I wanted to understand what it must have been like to be a rice planter one minute and be leading a mutiny the next, the sort of horror that preceded and followed that,” he

said. “I was young when I started this book, but so was he when he had this rebellion.” Cinque’s libretto, the book’s third and largest section, begins with a recollection of his life and capture in Sierra Leone, follows the tumultuous events of the Amistad, and ends with his return to West Africa. The epic cycle of events is relayed through spirituals and hollers, lonely confessions, reading lessons, a minstrel show and the periodic songs of a choir. “Homily” asserts the strength and longing needed for survival, “All night we sang/not of Death,– the cut/down tree – but of that/fruit you call free.” Digressions linger on poetic miscommunications, as in “Lawd’s Prayer,” which reads in part, “Lead us not/ into this nation/but deliver us from/weevils,” and the uncomfortable balance of bawdy humor and sadness that Young crucially understands as integral to the blues. Dylan’s Basement Tapes plumbed the origins of rock music and American history, trying to better understand how folk traditions shaped the culture of the ’60s. When Ardency’s poems point at the horror and absurdity of the slave trade, they’re also identifying the origins of the blues forms that continue to shape Young’s work today. It’s this conversation — or “correspondance” — between Young’s voice and the voices of the rebels, between the spirituals and the words that take their tune, that makes Ardency a powerful and important book.

B.o.B’ing for Grammys

Urban farts, f*ck-offs and Atlanta’s country anomaly do battle By GABe VodickA

music@creativeloafing.com

The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards air Sun., Feb. 13 at 8 p.m. on CBS. GIMME THAT GRAMMY: Decatur-bred B.o.B leads this year’s local pack with five Grammy nods.

cHRis PHeLPs

n one hand, the Grammy Awards are a wilted relic of the days when big-name albums sold millions the week of release and U2 was still important. On the other, its continual presence reminds us that, though the song hasn’t remained the same, it’s persevered. Kinda. At the very least, it’s worth noting that Atlanta still reps damn hard. As usual, this year’s list of Grammy nominees features some true-blooded ATL natives (and transplants) who do actually possess more than a John Mayer-esque modicum of talent. Go team: It should come as no surprise that the Recording Academy loves B.o.B. His mad genre-bending, Best Rap Album contender The Adventures of Bobby Ray actually sold like hotcakes. B.o.B’s “Nothin’ On You” is also up for Record of the Year. Cee Lo Green’s insta-viral jam “F*** You” is, too. Both will likely lose to Jay-Z’s cloying “Empire State of Mind.” Harumph. Janelle Monáe should win the entire Grammy Awards, but it doesn’t work like that. Yet. “Tightrope” is up for Best Urban/ Alternative Performance. What a ridiculous category, right? Any time music is described as “urban,” my soul rips a stinky fart. The ArchAndroid is nominated for Best Contemporary R&B Album, but it will likely fall to someone awful like Chris Brown, because there’s no justice. Also nominated in the category is Usher, who’s still hanging around. It wouldn’t be a year without Ludacris crafting a monster hit; this year it’s the chipmunk-y, stripper-y “How Low” that’s up for Best Rap Solo Performance alongside “I’m Back,” which T.I. dropped before he was, uh, no longer back. One of those two will take the category. (The smart money’s on the more unincarcerated Luda.) What’s that? Kanye West’s “Power” is also up? Oh. Nevermind. I know I said Monáe should win the Grammys, but actually, Monáe and Big Boi should split it. Sir Lucious was the best album of the year in any genre, but — surprise — it’s not nominated. Nice work, Academy, ya jerks. Thankfully, “Shutterbugg,” is up

for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, which … did they think it was a ’Kast jam? Either way, I’m calling the win. (Also nominated is “Lose My Mind” by Young Jeezy and Plies, but, come on: “Shutterbugg.”) But it’s not all urban-fart ’round here. As we know, Atlanta has suburbs; ergo, Atlanta has country music. The Zac Brown Band, which won Best New Artist in 2010 (Atlanta-based Justin Bieber will win it this year because of his eerie, mop do’d grip on the music industry’s old, wrinkly throat), is up for several categories, including Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for an Alan Jackson collab. (Alan Jackson! For me, that name conjures up awesome images of flesh-meltingly hot Braves games and elementary school gym class. That “way down yonder” song? Great for dodgeball.) Anyway, this is mere surface scratching in preparation for the real-ass deal. Join me once again on CL’s Crib Notes blog the morning after the madness, when you can read my rambling recap of the Grammy ceremony, which, God willing, will contain some memorable moments. If not, just come read about how drunk I got while watching. And, seriously, Atlanta: You got this. C

Ralph

Ralph 7-inch

d More reviews an MP3s online at

clatl.com/ music

Scavenger of Death Seven songs fly by on 7-inches as the debut EP from spawning punk quartet Ralph spins at the speed of chaos. “I Can’t Breath” sets things in motion with dirty buzzsaw guitars. Phillip Jaggar’s acidic shouts find the group meshing elements of punk, hardcore and metal, although there’s nothing here that holds any crossover appeal. Likewise, there are no hardcore breakdowns in any of the record’s most caustic numbers — “Destroy the Church,” “Nothing Changes” or the fist-pumping standout “Infectious.” There’s also nothing overtly political or intellectual driving this avalanche of low-fi dirge, just seat-of-the-pants energy cranked out by kids who’ve steadily digested a collection of Germs, Black Flag and Killed By Death records. If you’re looking for innovation, look elsewhere. This nod to classic form is a razor-sharp candidate for the most vicious Atlanta punk record of 2011. HHHII — chad RadfoRd

James Blake James Blake Atlas/A&M Believe the buzz: James Blake’s self-titled debut LP garnered more than a few glowing, hyperbolic reviews well before the dang thing even had a release date, and here’s another. The British-born Blake, already known in certain circles as a skilled producer, has created one of the most extraordinary records in years. Besides being blessed with a frighteningly masterful grasp of texture and sound (James Blake is a headphones record if there ever was one), Blake also possesses a soulful, striking voice. Electro-phobes will rejoice in the blunt urgency of tracks like “I Never Learnt to Share,” with its strange, stunning harmonies, while beat nerds will dig the haunting, slow-mo dubstep that travels the album’s veins. It’s the collision of the human and the alien that makes it — more so than any recent album or film, James Blake exposes the brittle line between us and the things we create. HHHHH — Gabe Vodicka

Anika Anika

Stones Throw Portishead mastermind Geoff Barrow’s role in this debut from icy crooner Anika is a bit curious, as a childlike bass and drum droll carves out a cover of ’60s teen-tragedy classic “Terry.” There’s a patchwork of obvious musical references at work here: Anika’s deadpan voice is a spot-on Nico stunt double, and the whole thing sounds like a lost ESG B-side. Channeling these elements through a cover-heavy set culminates in a patchwork of dub, minimalism and girl-group dreariness. There’s a lot of dark matter and open space billowing inside renditions of Yoko Ono’s “Yang Yang,” Skeeter Davis’ “End of the World” and Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War.” Originals such as “Officer Officer” and “No One’s There” weave into one dark swath of aural primitivism. In a twisted, post-modern way, this record isn’t all that different from a Portishead album, if Portishead recorded some basic demos in the garage. HHHII — chad RadfoRd

It’s always, “Yeah, come over, hang out.” Are we not good enough for a meal? — Hungry Dear Hungry, Let me answer you with an experience I had last year. I went to do some Valentine’s Day shopping at Lenox Square. As I walked through the parking deck, I heard quiet sobbing coming from a boy who looked about 12. He had no coat, just a ragged shirt to protect him from the cold night’s chill. Oddly enough, he was holding a hundred-dollar bill in his hand. Thinking he had gotten lost, I asked him what was wrong. He said he had seven brothers and sisters. His father was dead and his mother worked two full-time jobs. She made very little money, but had saved $200 to buy her children some Valentine’s Day presents. The mother had dropped the boy off on the way to her second job to buy presents for all his siblings. But he hadn’t even entered the mall when an older boy grabbed one of the hundred-dollar bills and disappeared into the night. “Why didn’t you scream for help?” I asked. The boy said, “I did.” MORE On thE “And nobody came to help you?” I said. wEb “How loud did you scream?” He looked up and whispered, “Help me!” Next week: Does I realized that absolutely no one could have kinky sex doom heard that poor boy cry for help. So I grabbed his a relationship? other hundred and ran to my car. clatl.com/sex My point, and I do have one, is that you’ve got to put up a louder fuss or guys are going to take advantage of you. The next time a guy asks you out, or rather, in, tell him you’d rather hit the town and have some fun. There are only three reasons a guy asks you in on the first couple of dates: 1) He wants to bang you like a sack of cement and doesn’t think you’re worth a burger; 2) He does think you’re worth a burger (or steak!), but doesn’t have the green to pay for it; or 3) He wants to cook for you, which, in my mind, would be reason to accept. Since reason No. 3 doesn’t seem to apply to you, we’re left with the prospect that you’re attracting guys who only want to boink you or guys who are so broke they can’t afford to take you out. There’s a recession going on, chickie-dee. And for a lot of us, things are getting worse, not better. No guy wants to take a girl out and have the Fergies of the world scream, “If you ain’t got no money, take your broke ass home!” The next time a guy asks you “in,” tell them you’d rather go out and have some fun. But suggest something affordable. SexorciSt@creativeloafing.com

AQUARIUS

The Water-Bearer

(JAn. 20-Feb. 18)

When some Westerners hear the term “tantra,” they think it’s a New Age word for lavish sex. In its original form, tantra is a philosophy that advocates spiritual union with all of creation. Tantric practitioners might engage in metaphorical “love-making” with birch trees, clouds and quirky friends. I recommend that you experiment with this perspective. I bet you’ll find that cultivating lusty compassion for the world will enhance your intimacy with the people you care about.

By RoB BRezsny PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): In many of the weddings

I’ve been to as a guest, the love birds have sealed their vows with a chaste kiss — a formal gesture that wasn’t imbued with much spontaneous passion. But in a recent marriage ceremony I attended, the new husband and wife showed little inhibition at the climax. They Frenchkissed in a prolonged embrace that also included ample groping. In the coming week, I urge you to put yourself as much as possible in situations where you can express that kind of free-wheeling spirit.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “Before I loved you, nothing

was my own,” wrote Pablo Neruda to his lover in one of his sonnets. “It all belonged to someone else — to no one.” Have you ever experienced a sense of being dispossessed like that, Aries? A sense of there being nowhere and nothing in the world that you can call your own? And have you ever fantasized that your emptiness could be remedied by the intimate presence of a special companion? I wish for you to have that consoling experience in the coming week. In fact, I predict it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’re very familiar with the inexhaustible longings that you harbor in your depths. Your primal hungers for love and connection are never far from your awareness. But the sad thing is that you often regard this as a problem. This Valentine season I’m asking you to change all that. I’m urging you to see your enormous yearnings as strengths ... to celebrate them as essential fuel for your vitality. Take it from someone who has seen too many people crippled by their lack of passion: You’re lucky to be so wellendowed with desire. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Here’s my prescription

for making best use of the current cosmic currents: Be enchanting, but in an understated way. Be slyly charismatic and innocently flirtatious and serenely wild. Show how sexy it is to be sublimely relaxed. Make judicious use of small acts of friendly mischief. Be affectionately unpredictable, always in the service of showing how much you care.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your love story has ele-

ments of a farce mixed with a soap opera, fairy tale and ghost story. For a normal human being, it might be too intense and convoluted to deal with; it requires so much willing suspension of disbelief and involves so much letting go of certainty that no one in their right mind would agree to its demands. Luckily, you’re not a normal human being these days, and you’re not particularly in your right mind. That’s why I say unto you: Ride this snaky tale for all it’s worth. Enjoy every plot twist and riddle as if you’ve been given an epic myth you can ponder and learn from for the next 10 years.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “I think, therefore I am,” declared the philosopher Descartes. Couldn’t he have equally said, “I feel, therefore I am” or “I sense, therefore I am”? During this Valentine season, I suggest that you put the emphasis on those other proofs of identity, not Descartes’. Intimacy is most likely to thrive if you liberate it from excessive thinking and lubricate it with generous amounts of trans-rational contact. Empty your head of abstractions and theories. Make lots of room for the aroma of freshly washed hair, the shimmer of peaceful excitement and the telepathy of shared perceptions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): What’s the best way for you to celebrate the season of love? In accordance with the astrological omens, here’s a good suggestion: Write haiku-like poems on scraps of red paper and leave them around for a special someone to find. You can borrow the following samples, adopted from the work of Raymond Roseliep. 1) “mist on my mouth — air you touched.” 2) “I tried to bring you that one cloud in this cup of water.” 3) “black raspberries — your name breaking in the soft burst.” 4) “love song: I enter your mirror.”

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s my astrological opinion that you need more jokes, comedy and humor in your romantic adventures. If you’re too serious about seeking the pleasures of love, you can’t get what you want. To inspire your efforts, I present the winning entry from last year’s Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest. It was judged the worst possible opening line for a novel, but it’s perfect fodder for the project I’ve assigned you: “For the first month of Ricardo and Felicity’s affair, they greeted one another at every stolen rendezvous with a kiss — a lengthy, ravenous kiss, Ricardo lapping and sucking at Felicity’s mouth as if she were a giant cage-mounted water bottle and he were the world’s thirstiest gerbil.”

you have considerable potential to bring more lyricism into your close relationships. To stimulate you in that noble effort, I’m borrowing from the poetry of André Breton. See if you can adopt this style of expressing yourself (or steal the actual words) as you reach out to a person you’d like to be closer to: “Your neck is pearled barley. Your hair is a wood fire. Your mouth is a bouquet of stars. Your eyelashes are a child’s first stroke of writing. Your eyebrows are the edge of a swallow’s nest. Your shoulders are dolphins’ heads under the ice. Your fingers? The ace of hearts. Your armpits? Beechnut and midsummer night. Your arms are the sea foam and flood gate foam. Your feet are bunches of keys.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Love that stam-

mers, that stutters, is apt to be the love that loves best,” wrote poet Gabriela Mistral. That’s an important theme to keep in mind during the season of amour. Your job as a lover is not to be inflated with the perfect knowledge of how to proceed, not to stride forcefully into each romantic nuance with your confidence exploding ... but rather to stumble along humbly, waging experiment after experiment, striving to kindle the spark, unleash the deluge, conjure the whirlwind, burrow into the dirty, sacred depths — or whatever the idiosyncratic truth of the moment calls for.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Borrowing words

from poet Amy Lowell, I’ve created the nucleus of a love note for you to use as your own. Feel free to give these words (and others you write yourself) to a person whose destiny needs to be woven more intimately together with yours. “Your shadow is moonlight on a plate of silver; your footsteps, the seeding-place of lilies; the mystery of your voice, a chime of bells across the windless river air. The movement of your hands is the long golden running of light from a rising sun. Young horses are not more limber than your thoughts. Your laughs are bees buzzing around a pear tree. I dare to reach to you. I dare to touch the rim of your brightness.”
