Welcome to sweetheart’s month. What ever happened to mixed scotch doubles, and couples’ tournaments? Maybe someone should start having some fun with our sports again and mix things up. Did all these “just for fun pool and dart functions die”? Maybe I’ll stop by some pool rooms and some of the bigger bars and put a bug in their ear. Is it just all about the money, what money right? That’s what I thought. When the fun comes back, our games will peak again, the only thing missing is “you”. Maybe it’s time for the room and bar owners to rally around the table again and see if we can light some fires. Remember the old saying, “united we stand divided we fall”? Well we’re doing pretty good at falling, aren’t we? When we isolate thinking we are growing our sports we are actually stunting the growth, no one person, room or bar can be the savior. We must unite again, and I’m too damn tired and old to chase after anyone again to explain this. But if anyone wanted to pick my brain or listen about past mistakes and things that worked I’d gladly sit down with them.

would interest you and bring you into their establishments more often; I’m a firm believer we need to change SOMETHING about our bars especially.

YOUR NAME AND/OR THE NAME OF YOUR BAND: Element a440 MEMBERS: Halo – Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Programming Graven – Guitars Ranie Mae – Bass Animal – Drums BRIEFLY DESCRIBE YOUR BAND/MUSIC: Element a440 delivers an intelligent brand of Edgy, Hook-Heavy, Dark, Melodic, and Electronic rock that enthralls its listeners. Spreading from the band to the individual, the intense lyrics and seductive sounds merge with the mind and body, through the crowd like an epidemic until all are as one. A new album is currently in the works so expect many great things from Element a440 this year. HOW OLD WERE YOU WHEN YOU LEARNED TO PLAY AND WHO INSPIRED YOU? Graven - I really haven’t quite learned yet so its hard to say… but as far as influences go… all of the badass guitar players. Ranie – I started playing when I was eleven and was inspired by a huge range of artists. Animal- I started around 41/2 and 5 years old and I was inspired by Neil Peart, The Rev, & Vinnie Paul. IF YOU COULD JAM WITH ANYONE ALIVE OR DEAD WHO WOULD IT BE? Animal – Well if it were someone that was alive it would

be Neil Peart. As far as dead I would have to say A7X. The Reverend. Ranie – Les Claypool Graven - Jammin’ with Zombies? I’m totally down for that, otherwise I’d love to jam with Dimebag, Randy Rhoads, Glenn Danzig & the Misfits WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE "CHEESY" SONG OF ALL TIME? Animal – Beastie Boys “girls”, Stepbrothers “boats and hoe’s”, Jan Terri’s “losing you”, Rebecca black’s Friday. Graven- Everythin’ from the 80’s. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE VENUE TO PLAY AT IN AZ? Graven – It’s a tossup between The Marquee and the Mesa Amphitheatre. Halo – I agree with Graven but I would also add Joe’s Grotto. Animal- Joe’s Grotto

WHAT’S YOUR POISON/DRINK OF CHOICE? Halo – Jack and Coke Ranie – Bacardi Razz and Code Red Animal- jack & coke, & New Castle Graven- Free WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER TO BE THE BEST SONG YOU PERFORM? Graven – All of them Animal – Parasite, or NDQ WHERE ARE YOUR GIGS FOR THE NEXT MONTH? Ranie – March 24th at Joes Grotto – Festival of Flesh 21+ Halo - We are also currently working on finishing our new record titled “Whips, Knives, Candles and Quills “that we are hoping to have done early in 2012. DO YOU HAVE A STORY ABOUT YOUR BEST SHOW EVER? Graven – All of them are our best shows Ranie – Well we got the cops called one time… Animal- our best show I think is when we had a three out of the four members of Element A440 halo, Graven, and I. We had a show at the plantation and we made us sound like we had all four of us there it was awesome.

FEBRUARY 2012

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A MUSICIAN? Graven – Playing music and everything that comes along with it. Animal- my favorite thing about being a musician is doing what I love and being able to interact with the fans after the shows. Halo- I love having the ability to pour out feelings into song and then perform those songs on stage! I guess I would say that the music isn’t really designed for the audience. It is designed around the band creating something that we feel is good. It then becomes truly rewarding when an audience can identify with it and sing along. Ranie – I love everything about being a musician, I can’t say I have a specific favorite thing about it. DO YOU READ TABLE TALK AND DART STARR NEWSPAPERS? Halo - I have started to read it since I found out it existed. DO YOU PLAY PRIVATE PARTIES AND ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR BOOKING? Halo – I guess it would depend on the party. Is there naked people?

Healthy Smiles Begin With Caring Dentists 2nd Avenue Corner Pocket in Cedar Rapids, IA The 2011-2012 Lucasi Hybrid Cues All American Tour – presented by the American CueSports Alliance (ACS) – showcased its seventeenth Tour stop of the year at 2nd Avenue Corner Pocket in Cedar Rapids, IA, Saturday, January 14. The $500-added 9-ball handicapped tourney on 7-foot Valley bar boxes drew 20 players. In the A-side semifinals, Scott Hargens (Cedar Rapids, IA) [rated a “7” on a regional rating system used] took down Craig Rice (Cedar Rapids, IA) [7] 7-1, and Anthony Garcia (Cedar Rapids, IA) [7] clipped Scott Kitto (Cedar Rapids, IA) [8] 7-7. Hargens then took the hot seat over Garcia by a 7-5 margin. On the B-side Craig Rice recovered from his A-side semifinal loss to eliminate D.J. Wolrab (Cedar Rapids, IA) [5] 7-4 – relegating Wolrab to 5th place, while Randy Tollefson (Vinton, IA) [5] upset Kitto 5-4, tying Scott with Wolrab. Rice then clipped Tollefson at 4th place by a 7-4 score; and Craig continued his hot hand with another hill-hill win – over Anthony Garcia 7-6, eliminating Garcia at 3rd place. Craig Rice then sought to avenge his loss to Scott Hargens, and he did so in a decisive

manner – upending Hargens in two 7-5 sets for the title! By virtue of Craig Rice being the highest-finishing ACS member in the event, he qualified for a free 9-Ball singles entry into the 2012 Lucasi Hybrid ACS Nationals at the Tropicana Las Vegas – courtesy of the ACS. The ACS wishes to thank sponsors Lucasi Hybrid Cues, Championship Billiard Fabric and Nick Varner Signature Cases for their support in donating “Value-In-Kind” product for this and all stops on the Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour. Sponsorship opportunities and tour stop openings are still available for the 2011/2012 All American Tour by contacting the ACS. The Tour showcases one stop this Saturday, February 4: a $500 added 8-Ball Tourney [NOT open to Elite, Advanced or A players] at Cue Masters Billiards in Dubuque, IA (contact Bill Kramer at 563599-7884). Further information, entry details and schedules for the 2011/2012 Lucasi Hybrid All American Tour are available at www.americancuesports.org.

AN AFTERNOON WITH A LEGEND ~Robert Brown

I had the honor of setting down and doing an interview with one of the greats in billiards. A man who made his living playing “on the road”. Four time 1 pocket champion and the 1st inductee into the 1 Pocket Halls Of Fame are just a few of his awards. Grady ”The Professor” Mathews . Author of a book called “Aim High and Kiss Low” and 17 DVD’s. It was for me, a very fun afternoon. Along with the answers, he told me stories. Some made us laugh and oth-ers were very emotional. After the interview he invited us to his home to see some of his memorabilia and trophies. When I left Mr. Mathews home I went home and watched “the Color of Money”. I looked for a character named Dud. Sure enough, it was him. Q) How old were you when you started playing. A) 13 in San Mateo. Q) What got you interested in the game? A) Father was a bowler. Got tired of watching and started playing on pool tables. Q) Who was your biggest influence or mentor when you were developing your skills? A) Eddie “ The Knoxville Bear” Taylor, Erving “the Deacon” Crane, “ Portland Don” Wat-son. Q) Why did you pick billiards over another game? A) I like golf. I have caddied for some pretty high profile people. Golf was expensive and I just kind of fell into playing pool. I went to the same high school as fellows named Jim For-gosy, Barry Bonds, Tom Brady. Q) Did you ever play in leagues? A) Only once, in the 70s. The team I was on won the national championship. It wasn’t a big deal to me. Q) Do you remember what league that was? A) I don’t even remember. The reason I played in it was some of my best customers played in it and they asked me to play, so I did. I couldn’t make any of the sports teams. I was a pretty good athlete back in Missouri. When I moved to California there was over 2000 kids. My new friends and I thought we were dis-criminated against. We tried out for baseball. We hit every

pitch, caught every ball, every throw was thrown. Still we didn’t even make the 2nd day. Even high school sports you get politics in there. You don’t have a chance. I wouldn’t trade my life for anything anyway. Q) What, and against who was your toughest match? A)i have played a lot of tough matches. Leonard “bugs” Rucker, he was 1 of my toughest 1 pocket matches. He was a great black 1 pocket champion from Chicago. Q) What’s the 1 match that stands out as your most fun match? A) I don’t know … I guess the most rewarding match was the night I won $60k. Me, “that would be a fun night”! Grady. “Well. I raised a family on no entitlements. I don’t know how I did it. I have no idea. Because it was hard. I had the same bills that everybody else did. Sometimes I would get $10k in debt and I would go on the road, I wouldn’t come home until I had all the money. Anyway, it was interesting. Q) Do you remember who you won the $60k from? A) There was this famous partner. Me and a guy named Bill Rosenbaum were partners against Keith McCredie, he is a famous player (he was in the Color of Money also) and a prominent Seattle attorney named Harry Blattis. Q) What, when and where was your 1st major title? A) I won the One-pocket championship 4 times, 83, 84, 85, and 95. I won some other tournaments but there has always been the question “what exactly is a major tournament?” Q) Do you consider the Olympics a good venue for this sport? A) It would be great if they can keep the politics out of it. Q) What do you think would have to happen for that to come about? A) They have been lobbying for it for some time now, the prevailing organizations and prominent players. I’m not sure what it would take. Q) How important is physical fitness? A) Oh … I think it is very important. Let me give you an example; my longest match was 90 hours. If a guy

showed me a stack of hundreds this thick, I had to be in shape. That’s why I could outlast most people because I was in shape. I was a runner … I could play a long time. Q) The oldest mention of billiards is 1406 with Mary, Queen of Scotts. It has come a long way from kings and queens to the common man. Where do you see our sport 100 years from now? A) I’m not sure they will ever achieve perfection. In my career I always tried to achieve per-fection. Let me give you an example, in straight pool, a 150 point game is the length of a championship match. So perfection would be a 150 ball run. But, that’s not real perfection. If I run 150 balls, I’m not going to have perfect position every time. You get out of line and have to adjust. These guys today, they play so good. So , 100 years from now , I see them playing near perfect if not perfect games. Q) What advice would you give to up and coming young player? A) Build a resume! Janette Lee is a

multi-millionaire. She used to get advice from people like me and Buddy Hall and we would practice with her. But… she had a resume. She got good ( at pool ) and good endorsements. Now she gets $20K for an appearance fee. Q) Your book “Bet High and Kiss Low” came out in 2001. Is there anything you would like to add to it now? A) If I had it to do over again (when I get healthy I might rewrite it), I would take the bad things out of it and there are some things I would like to add to it. Some interesting games and matches I would like to write about. Q) Any thoughts or words of wisdom you would like to share? A) Rough translation of a funny story … “don’t piss off the female players. They are the ones on TV now. I would like to thank Mr. Mathews for his time and hospitality. If you have a chance stop by Gradys Billiards and say hi.

AUDI A-6 SUPERCHARGED SEDAN Text and Photos by Chad Haire

The Audi A-6 sedan has two features. First, it’s expensive. The base price on mine started at $49,900. But of course you “need” all of the extra toys that jack the price, which came to $61,530. Secondly, this is a first-class ride. I drove it for a week and couldn’t find anything to complain about (except giving it back).

As a sport sedan, this delivers. The small 3.0 liter V-6 is supercharged with 310 horsepower, hooked to a great 8-speed (yes, eight) automatic gearbox. I reached a brisk real world 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds (unless you want to believe Motor Trend magazine, which listed a questionable 4.6 seconds time. They expect us to think a two-ton Audi with 310 horses can run as fast as a two-ton Mustang with 500 horses? Ain’t gonna happen, but M/T magazine has always been shelling out the bull). Handling, braking,

FEBRUARY 2012

and steering are excellent. The suspension also has four adjustments for ride comfort/ handling ability. Another great feature is the interior. Audi has a reputation for assembling a fantastic cabin, and this one is top notch, with beautiful materials, fine workmanship, and lots of bells and whistles properly spread. The main computer system for radio, suspension, navigation seems complex for first-time users, but easy to learn and simple to use once learned. In any case, it’s far superior to units found on other German cars.

When you’re not driving fast, the A-6 makes for a good soft luxury ride. If I had to drive from Scottsdale/Phoenix to New York right now, this is the vehicle I would take. A real smoothie and a great car if you can afford it.
