BACK TO IRAQ?
his week, the United States began air strikes in Syria in an attempt to disarm ISIS who is causing all sorts of problems in Iraq in attempt to take it over. The move marks a significant reengagement of the United States in military action in Iraq after previously pulling all troops from there as the vast majority of the American people had wanted. We should be very cautious about prolonging the inevitable in Iraq. Will these airstrikes really solve the problem? President Obama essentially rode his way to office on promises of withdrawals from both Iraq and Afghanistan. The withdrawal from Iraq took longer than expected and the one in Afghanistan has yet to happen. While it’s true that as a democratic Commander in Chief, no matter what President Obama does with the military, he is bound to be criticized. But we need to remember the enormous expense our efforts in Iraq have already cost and of course not forget the loss of American soldiers’ lives. While some may say that’s why you keep fighting, to make sure those deaths weren’t in vain, the correct way to look at it is should we even have been there in the first place and at what point do you realize that no matter what we do over there, the end result will always be the same. We can’t say there forever and we can’t continue to spend billions of dollars on foreign problems with so many issues at home. President Obama has already ruled out sending ground troops back in to solve the issues in Iraq; however, his generals have publicly said if these airstrikes fail, they may recommend doing just that. Already as expected, there is a chorus of armchair military experts continuing a steady drumbeat of constant criticism of President Obama’s airstrike policy as being doomed to fail and not going far enough. This is not surprising as there is a whole military-industrial complex that would significantly benefit from another increase in military involvement. Our engagement in this go-around in Iraq started in 2003; it’s now 11 years later. Had the American people known our involvement would’ve lasted this long and cost this much, do you think they would’ve said the cost is worth it? What do we gain by continually remaining there? Of course no one wants Iraq to descend into chaos and ISIS to take it over. But
would anyone really support sending American troops back into Iraq and the potential elongation of our involvement that would result? If the Iraqi troops can’t defend themselves now after over a decade of us helping and training them, when will they ever be able to? No one wants to preside over defeat or seeing whatever gains we did make go by the wayside. But it’s important to remember that if you didn’t put us there, maybe it’s not such a big deal if you finally get us out for good regardless of the result. There also seems to be a lot of hyperbole and fear-mongering being spread around about these Islamic terrorists potentially coming here to the United States or being smuggled through the southern border that are extremely unfounded and have no basis in fact according to our intelligence agencies and the Department of Homeland Security. Better to fight ‘em over there before we have to fight them over here is what they say. It’s this same type of fear and logic that resulted in tanks being given to police departments all across North Dakota. Does anyone really think there’s an imminent threat from ISIS terrorists invading America just because some conservative blogger says so? Sometimes the threat is overblown and the fear is unfounded because it’s being pushed by those with an agenda of keeping us permanently engaged in military action just to prove that they were right all along. It’s easy to see through this, they leak stories to friendly members of the media in order to push their side of the argument just as they did in many cases with false information in order to make the case for war against Iraq. We need to remember a lot of these same people criticizing President Obama for not going far enough are the same ones who put us there. President Obama needs to remember that he will never quiet those critics who have been nipping at his heels from day one. He should remember the people who put him in office for promising to change our constant involvement in military actions such as this. It starts with airstrikes and spreads from there. Tread lightly, Mr. President. This may be an unsolvable problem that these people need to sort out for themselves, regardless of the end result, just as they probably should have done many years ago.

HEADS AND WAR
The Removal Of Heads And Another War So far the loss of four heads (as of 9/15/14) may involve us in another war. Two journalists and a British aid worker have been decapitated by a radical Islamic fundamentalist group under the acronym of ISIL. That grisly but very human act was performed thousands of times in our rather checkered past when heads were placed on pikes and staffs on castle walls. Decapitation marvelously concentrates the mind. But it is the fourth beheading I’m really worried about. This is the “class action” beheading of the Obama administration, the Pentagon, the Congress, and the national press. Removing the head is very hard on the brain. Chapter 47 (Sura) of the Koran contains the following verse: “When you encounter the unbelievers on the battlefield, strike off their heads until you have crushed them completely; then bind the prisoners tightly.” Iranian historians in the 9th and 11th Centuries wrote that beheadings are Allah’s sanction on heathens and infidels. As late as 1953 a Koran “translator” (Unlike the Christian Bible, no different renditions of the Koran are allowed) Abdullah Yusuf Ali stated that the line “smite at their necks” had to be taken “literally and figuratively.” The rash of beheadings started again in 2002 after 9/11 when Wall Street reporter Daniel Pearl was beheaded. Sunnis and Shias have religiously beheaded each other with great fervor since, particularly in Baghdad. Mohamed said Allah commanded him not to change a word or comma in the Koran, which was dictated to him.
First Warning For Journalists: Understand The Local Culture And Traditions What do foreign journalists and aid workers expect when they enter a part of the world populated by thousands of young suicide bombers seeking martyrdom and millions of poor unemployed and uneducated men with all kinds of leisure time to think about 72 virgins -- while idle Arab princes are getting monthly allowances of $270,000 from Big Daddy? But our government should know better. Retired Army Colonel David Hackworth remains our most decorated serviceman. He earned over 100 medals for gallantry in action during WWII, the Korean War, and three tours in the Vietnam War. Hackworth was so angry about the horrible mess in Vietnam he lived in Australia for 20 years. He observed the Bosnian War between Muslims and Serbs as a reporter for Newsweek during the 1990s. On one patrol with a Serb unit he watched as they stopped at a cemetery and dug up a grave that had a marker indicating the person died in 1944. When they had uncovered the coffin the patrol ceremoniously lined up, urinated on the coffin -– and then blasted it to pieces with machineguns. Hackworth asked an officer why. He said, “That man was a very, very bad man. He killed many Serbs during WWII. He is being punished.” We must remember that Muslims have been killing each other for 1,400 years because of religious beliefs. Hackworth, no genteel type in his own right, described the Muslims and Serbs as “mean junkyard dogs.” 4
A Saudi woman was sentenced to 150 lashes and eight months in jail for driving a car. Muslim women do not have that freedom. A male relative must drive them. From Flying Palaces To Arab Springs There are a multitude of reasons for some of the Muslim nations –- Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon in particular -- to explode into the Arab Spring revolts, coups and civil wars. Saudi Arabia might be next. I will cite just three reasons. A Saudi woman was sentenced to 150 lashes and eight months in jail for driving a car. Muslim women do not have that freedom. A male relative must drive them. Saudi Prince Abdulaziz Al Saud has spent $485 million converting a 600-passenger Airbus A380, the largest passenger jet in the world, into a personal flying carpet. This flying palace boasts a concert room with grand piano, a garage with an elevator for the prince’s Rolls Royce, a Turkish steam bath for four, and a business-type boardroom complete with holographic screens. It has five rooms with king-size beds and a “Wellbeing Room” that is equipped with computers and cameras that show what lands the plane is passing over on the plane’s floor. Very entertaining. I imagine that the system shows all of the pissants working the oil fields that supply the money for the royal family to blow on personal desires. In the hundreds of thousands of Top Secret memos and documents released by Wikileaks was one sent in 1996 by the US embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia that revealed the method of “wealth distribution” used by Saudi royals to keep the huge family happy. The figures below are based on 1996 figures. (If the same formulas are used in 2014, these figures could probably be doubled.) The Saudis guard this information well. Distant relatives of the royal family, and there are thousands, are paid a monthly allowance of at least $800. The sons and daughters of the king are paid a monthly allowance of $270,000. There are many other financial benefits. A family member may get as much as $3 million when married, and could possibly get another $3 million for building a new palace. The royal family also provides bonuses for procreating children. Osama bin Laden had six wives and up to 26 children but was not a member of the royal family. His Daddy, however, was a billionaire buddy of the king, so he kept those little Muslims coming.
The 1,400-Year Battle Between The Sunnis And The Shias The founder of Islam, Mohamed, died in 632 AD, and was succeeded by his buddy Abu. Some Islamists thought this succession was not legit. They thought that Mohamed’s cousin Ali, his adopted son, should be named caliph (leader). He not only was Mohamed’s first convert, he had also married the man’s daughter. To make a long story short, supporters of Abu became the Sunnis of today and the supporters of Ali became the Shia. They have been killing
each other, and lots of other people, for over 1,400 years. About 85% of Muslims are Sunni, so the Shia are outnumbered around the world. Iraq and Iran are Shia nations. Iraq is having so much trouble because Saddam Hussein was a minority Sunni who held Iraq together by murder, intimidation, poison gas, torture chambers, fear, and the aid of two sons who raped and murdered their way to Sunni godliness. But Saddam, just one of the many real bastards in the world, still allowed women to become educated, to become teachers, doctors, and other societal leaders. But Muslims, much like Vatican Roman Catholics, have exceedingly long memories. Suicide bombers representing both Sunnis and Shias continue to blow each other up in the streets of Baghdad and Islamabad, Pakistan.
Was The Iraq War Really About WMD – Or Was It About Oil? In brief, we should not react too much to the current “threat” of the radical group called ISIL. They are very busy killing other radical Muslims by the thousands. Why interfere with that genocide cleansing? I think we should let them kill each other until they get tired of “jihad.” It won’t do any good, in fact it will be very harmful for our interests, to get involved in the many Sunni-Shia civil wars taking place on our ever shrinking planet. It’s been estimated that there are as many as 1,200 Muslim “militias” in Syria. At the same time they are fighting President Assad, the murderer of an estimated 200,000 of his own people at this juncture, they are also fighting each other! Which dozen Syrian “moderate” militias do you pick to support? I keep hearing US senators talking about helping the Free Syrian Army with cold cash and hot weapons. The McCain-Graham-Republican warmongering cabal is pushing for war in at least six countries other than Iraq and Syria. We don’t even know what group the Free Syrian Army represents. Besides, it is neither “Free” or “Army.” I see the CIA claims it has identified most of the “good guys” in Syria. Don’t we remember what the CIA said about Iraq and Saddam? A pushover. The war would last six weeks. Saddam had loads of Weapons of Mass Destruction. (Was it really about oil?) He had to go. We even have currently over 1,200 nutcase militias roaming the boondocks of this country, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. We can’t even pick supporters among our own religious nuts. We are really nuts to get involved in the Middle East mess at this point.
The Middle East Is Not A Quagmire Now, It Is An Absolute Hellhole I am not sure we can even count the number
of civil wars in progress in the region, let alone the civil wars that will break out in the near future over that great war combination, economics and religion. Are there any real “countries” in the Middle East? Iran dominated by Shias and Israel dominated by Jews are the only ones I can think of. The rest of the “countries” are really made up of dozens of tribes incapable of economic, religious, and political compromise. We have similar tribes in the US. I see the CIA in just the last two weeks has raised its estimate of ISIL fighters in the area from 10,000 to between 20,000 and 31,500. Well, there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world so I suppose such a fast recruitment is possible, but their predication smells as bad as some of the previous estimates of strengths in Iraq and Afghanistan. Private military experts and analysts who track such things say that the idea the Free Syrian Army has an effective command structure is an absolute myth. Aron Lund of the Carnegie Institute of International Peace, assigned to edit the “Syrian in Crisis” blog writes: “It is a very dirty war ...” Some remnants of “moderates” are fighting alongside the Nusra Front, the Al Qaeda affiliate in Syria. Former government officials who have served in Iraq and the Middle East are not confident in what Obama and Congress are doing. Former US ambassador to both Iraq and Syria Ryan Crocker says, “We need to do everything we can to figure out who the non-ISIL opposition is. Frankly, we don’t have a clue.”
What Does The Crazy Uncle From The White House Basement Say? I see the Republican Congressional caucus asked former Vice-President Dick Cheney to examine the entrails of pheasant roosters and give them some advice on the ISIL problem. Cheney has been right about war only once in the last 20 years. He said he and Bush ‘41 did not finish off Saddam in the Gulf War because it would have destroyed the coalition of Arab and European countries -- and Iraq would become a real mess. But when he and Bush ‘43 attacked Iraq in 2003 he said we would be welcomed as liberators, that the war would last only six months, and Iraqi oil would pay for it. After our defeat he said that the BushCheney administration had put the US in a position to “win” in Iraq. Win what? I have never gotten an answer to that question. Why even ask the guy who really screwed up the Iraq War with dire warnings of WMD, poison gas, SCUD missiles, and mushroom clouds? Actually most of the ISIL leaders today are former Iraqi military officers who had been imprisoned by us – some at Abu Ghraib. We have lost wars in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan because we didn’t know who to kill and who to serve tea to. All wars against insurgencies and civil wars are losers because no one can recognize the real enemy without a uniform.
“War Is Absolute Hell...” My last commander in the Marine Corps was Lt. General Chesty Puller, who rose from private to general fighting in five wars from Nicaragua to World War II to Korea. In his 50s he still volunteered for Vietnam. He often repeated this credo: “War is absolute hell. To win you have to kill everyone in sight, then let the politicians sort it out. You don’t hurt ‘em if you don’t kill ‘em.” We have no idea in the Middle East who we are fighting with and who we are fighting against. The politicians have not sorted anything out yet because these tribal conflicts, civil wars, coups, and proxy wars mixed up in the very hot cauldron of religion are not “sortable.” Let the Middle East Muslims keep killing each other until they “sort” it out.

COWORKING FOR CREATIVES
C o C o C o w or k ing on B r o a dw ay no w open

n Fargo, it’s now possible for freelance designers to be co-workers with university professors. It’s now much more possible for a web developer to get over-the-shoulder feedback from a creative writer, or vice versa. Or perhaps a tech entrepreneur needs advice from a coworking attorney. In many cases, people might just find whom they need advice from in the kitchen or in on their way to the bathroom. While all these professionals may not be employed by the same person, who’s to say they cannot co-work? This contemporary phenomenon, coworking, is taking place in big cities all over the country and has now reached Fargo thanks to a Twin Cities-based organization called CoCo. CoCo Fargo, which has been open for two
weeks, essentially helps make collaboration between its members, of differing professional backgrounds, easy and accessible. “Our goal, first and foremost, is to build a community of people who show up on a regular basis and feel like they are surrounded by people who care about them,” said Don Ball, CoCo cofounder. Coworking spaces are a fantastic alternative to working at home, where it’s easy to feel isolated or distracted by non work-related materials, or working in a coffee shop, where it can be noisy and non-interactive. “It’s a cool environment … but it’s not really cool to tap someone on the shoulder and ask them about their work and tell them about what just happened to you,” Ball said. “There are some boundaries that have to be respected, whereas here the boundaries happen to be a little more porous.” CoCo’s environment makes it easy for people to be social. The floor plan is very open, the décor is hip yet welcoming and fresh, there’s a large commons area with long tables, conferences rooms and a centrally located kitchen. Not to mention, CoCo has gigabit Internet, the fastest network connection available.
Fargo’s site, located on Broadway above the King House Buffet, has already attracted graphic designers, tech developers, administrators, nonprofit workers and a motivational speaker. In the Twin Cities, CoCo is home to attorneys and accountants. “We’re definitely catering to a variety of people. There are a lot of startups that are saying, ‘We are a tech co-working space.’ That’s not what we are about and CoCo has never made that sort of designation. We definitely want all people to feel welcome,” said Rachel Sternhagen, CoCo Fargo’s community manager. With Fargo’s hot job market, low unemployment rate and highly enthusiastic and nurturing entrepreneurial community, it’s no surprise we’re seeing a coworking space of this caliber pop up in our community. While Ball and CoCo CEO Kyle Coolbroth had plans on expanding outside of the Twin Cities, they were encouraged early on by Emerging Prairie’s Greg Tehven to pursue Fargo as their next location. Ball also said he’s been working with Fargoans since the mid to late 90s, particularly with the founders of Sundog, back when it was a three-person company.
“So I knew people up here and always knew there was something unique about how people felt about their town here – that it was different than what I noticed in a lot of other places,” Ball said. “Just the sense of pride is almost disproportionate.” Those interested in learning more about coworking and about individual and group memberships to CoCo can visit cocomsp.com. “In the end, this business has less to do with surfaces to put your computer on or Wi-Fi or coffee,” Ball said.” It has more to do with a sense of belonging to other people in the community so that it feels like it matters if you show up.”

TAKE AND GIVE
The Polar oid snapshot of ‘Time Zer o’
overs of “instant” photography can vividly recall their whereabouts in 2008 when Polaroid announced the end of integral film production. Integral film, the description commonly applied to the white-bordered prints that sandwiched all the chemicals necessary for development in layers, is synonymous with both inventor Edwin Land and the once powerful company he originally founded in 1937. Filmmaker Grant Hamilton’s “Time Zero: The Last Year of Polaroid Film,” artfully frames the digital versus analog struggle in clear and persuasive arguments about the things we lose when established processes are replaced by promises of the new and improved. The first sections of the movie recount the monumental innovations of Land, and a number of the man’s colleagues share recollections of the inventor’s remarkable work habits. While a different story could have been told solely about Land, “Time Zero” avoids outright hagiography by broadening its scope to engage the art as well as the science behind Polaroid’s legendary history. Hamilton uses Arthur C. Clarke’s line that “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic,” and photographer Lou Noble, who has by his own estimate taken between four and five thousand Polaroid images, reiterates the oft-stated claim that Polaroid photography is
akin to wizardry. A significant portion of “Time Zero” explores the aesthetic and psychological appeal of Polaroid’s tactile, physical process, and some of the movie’s best moments belong to photographers like Tod Brilliant, who talks about how instant photography “transcends cultural boundaries.” Brilliant’s anecdote about presenting a Paris couple with the only photo they were going to see of themselves on the night of their wedding is one of several quicksilver illustrations of Polaroid’s unique immediacy and intimacy. Brilliant, Kim Van Groos, and many others make a mantra out of the power that resides in producing a physical artifact you can give to the subject just moments after exposure. Graphic and industrial designers will salivate at any number of Hamilton’s sidebars. An interview with Polaroid art director Paul Giambarba, whose gorgeous, clean package design became one of the most distinctive brand identifiers during the company’s glory days, is a highlight. So too is the explanation by Barbara Hitchcock that Polaroid photography functions as a communication tool that “would make it easier for you, and everyone, to become an artist.” Not everyone, of course, likes the recognizable properties of a Polaroid
photograph, but you won’t find any of those critics in Hamilton’s movie. The final act of the film focuses on the efforts of the scientists and entrepreneurs affiliated with the Impossible Project, a labor of love undertaken by Florian Kaps and a few other dreamers who believed in a future for instant photography after Polaroid turned off their machines. Polaroid fanatics know that the Impossible Project is the only company in the world currently producing new film for the SX-70 and other automatic eject camera models, so the movie’s conclusion may be somewhat anticlimactic. That manufactured suspense, along with Hamilton’s decision to
omit all but a passing mention of the still-popular-among-enthusiasts Land cameras that use peel-apart pack film, are minor complaints. “Time Zero” is now available on Netflix instant watch and other streaming platforms.
sion, and longings of human nature believably, taking the audience along on their entertaining if sometimes bumpy ride to self-discovery and acceptance of adulthood. Mance Media’s Blu-ray of “Forev” looks very nice overall in HD (and is cropped to the theatrical ratio of 1.85). It is a substantially more involving experience projected on a large screen than viewed on a computer or TV set. The picture is occasionally slightly dark and some shots are a bit soft or have focus that wanders, but that is likely inherent to its having been shot on a Digital SLR camera with the autofocus left on at times. Audio is reasonably good, in Dolby Digital stereo surround, but in some scenes the dialogue tends to be overpowered by the music or sound effects. There are optional English captions for the deaf and hard-of-hearing that can be used to clarify those scenes. The disc includes a modest but entertaining selection of bonus features. There’s the original trailer, about six minutes of outtakes and deleted scenes, a couple minutes of on-set
home movies by Matt Mider (all in HD), a set of ten behind-the-scenes photos taken by Noël Wells, and an amusing gallery of the bogus DVD covers used in a scene when the couple is approached by a man selling bootleg DVDs. Although not officially rated by the MPAA, “Forev” would probably get an “R” for its second-half language and a few sexual references. A trailer, background, other reviews, and viewing/ordering information can be found on the movie’s official website at www.forevmovie.com.

CUTE INDIE ROM-COM NOW ON BLU-RAY O ne of the independent features that played at this past spring’s Fargo Film Festival has recently been released to Blu-ray and DVD, as well as internet streaming. “Forev” premiered at last year’s Los Angeles Film Festival and made the rounds of various film festivals for several months. Instead of attempting to follow up with a regular theatrical release, its distributors elected to try a strictly internet-based availability through various video-on-demand platforms and direct Blu-ray/DVD sales through the movie’s official website. “Forev” is a promising first feature-length movie for its writer-director team, Molly Green and James Leffler, as well as most of its actors and crew, shot on weekends and holidays over about two months. After the script got started and production began the three main stars were closely involved in developing scenes and dialogue. Noël Wells (a 2013-2014 “Saturday Night Live” cast member) and Matt Mider star as struggling actress Sophie and computer phone-support technician Pete. They’re nextdoor neighbors in a low-rent L.A. apartment who have always been friendly but only know each other casually. After Sophie mistakenly bursts through his door during a disastrous date, the next day stopping by for consolation after a disastrous audition, she finally flops down on his floor vowing to stay there, and Pete teases that if she’s staying they should probably get married, since he’s about to leave 6
on day-long trip. Unexpectedly, Sophie seems open to the idea, and though both quickly dismiss it as spontaneous joking around, she asks if he’d like company on the drive. The two take off across the desert for Phoenix to pick up Pete’s sister Jess (Amanda Bauer) from her sorority house, and during the journey both become more and more convinced that they really should become engaged, even though they barely know each other. Jess is shocked at their decision, especially since her long-time boyfriend has just dumped her. The trip home proves far more eventful as their car breaks down, they all get stuck in a cheap motel, Jess gets drunk and wanders off with a flakey, bearded drifter who has an RV (Chuck McCarthy), and Sophie gets a call from her agent about a commercial. Feelings and intentions rapidly ebb and flow with the changing situations. The movie is an engaging look (pun intended) at relationships and the concept of love and happiness, at making snap decisions on a whim and deciding to follow through with them. The story explores whether it might be more rewarding to let friendship, happiness, and love develop into a relationship, or to let a relationship develop into friendship, love and happiness. It posits that many relationships that initially seem happy may merely be desperate substitutes for love, whereas relationships that seem merely practical or convenient may actually result in true love. The very likeable cast is able to pull off the contradictions, fears, confu-

en years is a milestone for just about anything and for one area theater troupe, it’s definitely something special. Tin Roof Theatre opens its 10th season on Sept. 26 with a story that has played out in real life, in film and onstage. The Nuremberg trials, a series of trials held by the Allies, prosecuted dozens of Nazi war criminals in the years after World War II. Abby Mann’s “Judgment at Nuremberg” examines one of those trials, a 1947 case that dealt with four judges and their enforcement of sterilization, racial purity and other policies. For members of Tin Roof Theatre, it’s a story that is still relevant today with the current global social climate. “We can take a lot of lessons away from this original, international courtroom drama,” cast member Reid Strand said, “because the Nuremberg trials really tell us that no matter how affluent, how civilized your country is, you do not get a free pass for taking one human life.” In a story like this, there is quite some

heavy subject matter, and Tin Roof has done its research and delved into the era at hand. This summer the troupe members visited two area museum exhibits on World War II—the Clay County Museum’s “Doing Our Part: Clay County in WWII” exhibit and Bonanzaville’s “Fighting the Fires of Hate: America and the Nazi Book Burnings.” Actors also met with two area World War II veterans, Conrad Newgren and Loren Helmeke, who witnessed important moments in the final days of the war. Helmeke helped to liberate the Ohrdruf concentration camp, while Newgren has a direct connection to events at Nuremberg. “Conrad was actually in Nuremberg when the last stand took place,” director Karla Underdahl said. “He was part of the team that set up the explosives on top of the big, bronze swastika on top of Zeppelinfeld … and he actually has a piece of the swastika that hit him in the foot, apparently.” That shard of the Nazi emblem is featured in the “Doing Our Part” exhibit.

put on this play was somewhat born out of the two museum exhibits this summer, as well as the 70th anniversary of D-Day. The timing was perfect, and since Tin Roof had been considering this show for a while, the stars aligned to make this play the company’s 10th season opener. “Ten years is pretty big for a theater company as small as we are to come along,” Underdahl said. “It has been an interest for a while now, and so we just said let’s go for it.” In doing so, the company partnered up with a couple regional organizations to support the show. The Wilf Family Foundation and the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas have both contributed
to Tin Roof Theatre for “Judgment at Nuremberg” and the message of tolerance and justice that it bears, a theme that is relevant in any era. “We’re trying to make it timeless so that people know that this is something that’s still currently happening all around the world,” Underdahl said. “People are still being prosecuted for their religious beliefs.” Strand agreed and offered a modern lens through which to view this story, one that will certainly educate as well as entertain. “Obviously today with a lot of journalists that have been beheaded in Syria, with the monolithic, Islamic state that it’s coming into being, we can take a lot of lessons away from this original, international courtroom drama.”

According to artist and event organizer Jon Offutt, the Studio Crawl is the reason the FMVA exists. “It was our first big project,” Offutt said. “The FMVA and the Studio Crawl grew at the same time.” The FMVA is a nonprofit created by artists, for artists. Not only does the FMVA notify its members about juried exhibitions throughout the region, it also offers to transport submissions to and from the events. Members receive discounts from Art Materials, Sir Speedy and The Underbrush Gallery. The FMVA hosts critiques, art burns, group exhibitions and members are eligible to have their studio featured in the Studio Crawl. This year, 41 studios will be featured with over 90 participating artists. FMVA board president Brenda Luthi stated in the opening statement of the Studio Crawl brochure, “These artists participate because they believe in the value of engaging the public with the artistic community and making art accessible.” Studio crawlers can anticipate seeing their favorite studios from years past as well as a few new faces. Newcomers include Barbara Benda Nagle, Jodi Peterson, Ken Omundson, Liz Walberg, Ramon Morin Jr., and Ruth Severson and Barry Kutzer from In the Chips, a woodworking studio.

New participating artists are subject to a jurying process. “Someone from outside the area, someone without prejudice, is found to—not judge their work—but to see if they have a studio that can handle the traffic. To make sure they’re practicing artists in the community,” Offutt said. Preparations for the crawl started as far back as January. This involves creating a prospectus, establishing a call for artists, finding a juror to adjudicate the artists, write grants, rally community support, plus assembling the brochure/map for the event and give the studio a thorough cleaning. Who comes out for the crawl? “We see dates, families, young people, older people and teenagers,” Offutt said. “For several years we had a busload of teens from Bismarck come. Some teachers give their students extra credit — so the students ask for our signatures on their brochures to prove where they’ve been. Our friends and families often come. Many of the artists serve refreshments. It’s a citywide party!” Offutt estimates 3,000 visitors and 15,000 studio visits, though some studios get more traffic than others. “That’s what’s nice about the Studio Crawl,” he said. “You can do as much or as little as you want. Or just pick up a Studio Crawl map and you can visit the Plains Art Museum, the Rourke Museum and the Hjemkomst Center for free that weekend.” Studio Crawl attendees can anticipate plasma cutting demonstrations from Karman Rheault, wood carving demonstrations at In the Chips Studio and wheel throwing demos with Brad Bachmeier. Magda Szeitz of Magpie Mosaic will do mosaic and lathe demonstrations and show the progress of her Red River Zoo mosaic, which is being commissioned for the Zoo’s otter habitat. Offutt will do glassblowing demonstrations on the hour with a cold keg of root beer for studio guests. The crawl will also feature a wide array of mediums that include paintings, pottery, photography, glass work, sculptures of wood, stone and found objects, and the Ukrainian folk art Pysanka, which involves intricately dyed eggs courtesy of MaryJo Cayley. Susanne Williams, of Willi Nilli, will display works of leather and wearable art at The Uptown Gallery located on Broadway. While there, be sure to check out The Fargo Annual: An Invitational Fine Art Exhibition to help celebrate Uptown’s first year as a gallery. The NDSU Renaissance Hall located on NP Avenue will feature five participating organizations and individuals including The NDSU Ceramics Club, The NDSU A.R.T. Organization will be set up on the third floor of the Renaissance Hall. The student organization will have art displayed throughout the building as well as in individual studios located in the basement. While there, be sure to check out the PEARS Studio (Printmaking Education and Research Studio), run by printmakers Kent Kapplinger and Eric Johnson. Whether you are a student or just curious to the ways of printmaking, PEARS offers educational workshops to the public as well as artist development residencies. Visiting 40 studios in two days may be next to impossible, so those interested in a precrawl overview can check out the Plains Art Museum’s Studio Crawl Preview that will spotlight all the participants in one exhibit. The exhibition is on display till Oct. 12. A full listing of all the events and sights can be found in this year’s Studio Crawl directory, which can be found at various FM locations and on FMVA’s new website, www. fmva.org.

Boulder Dragonhosen (ABV: 9.0% IBU 34)
This Imperial Oktoberfest is deep copper colored with a luscious fluffy white head. A traditional Marzen, this beer finishes with a spicy kick. This full-bodied beer is perfect for the chilly fall weather; with its malty body and lingering spice this beer will have you breathing fire.
|By Krissy Ness|
Two Brothers Atom Smasher (ABV 7.7% IBU 22.6%)
This Oktoberfest Style Lager is copper in color with a decent head that doesn’t last long. Aged in French Oak Foudres (large cask for maturing), it is not like the other imported beers of its kind. With a sensational mouth feel, this beer is prickly from the tip of your tongue to the back of your throat. With a crisp easy finish, this beer will leave you wanting more.
Oktoberfest began Sept. 20 and runs until the beginning of October
Ayinger Oktober Fest–Marzen (ABV 5.8%)
This Marzen hails from Germany and has a pale copper-colored body and a decent white head. It has a biscuit and slight floral hop scent, malty body, and finishes with a crisp non-lingering taste. This beer complements the fall’s coolness.
4-6pm Tuesday - Thursday 10-11pm Tuesday - saTurday
Fargo Brewing Co. O’Fest (ABV 5.0%)
FBC’s version of a traditional Marzen (March) has a light body that is pale orange in color with a minimal white head. This beer is very malty and has a very smooth body. The mouth feel is carbonated and finishes with a cream corn taste and does not leave a lingering aftertaste.
Schell’s Oktoberfest (ABV 5.5%)
Brewed only once a year, this Marzen is light copper colored and lite in body with a decent amount of white frothy head. Definite hints of spice escape this beer. The mouth feel has minimal carbonation but a tingly feeling that cannot be ignored. This beer is malty and well balanced that finishes clean with no lingering finish.

ALL ABOUT FOOD
COFFEE THAT ROCKS
Jam out with a cup of joe
ne of Fargo’s newest caffeine distributors, Classic Rock Coffee, is seeking to “wake up” the community. Located across from Scheels on 45th Street, this unique coffee shop is fusing together two very special, awakening ingredients: caffeine and — you guessed it — rock ‘n’ roll. Decked out in stage lighting, wild guitars, classic vinyls, old-school rock memorabilia and oddities, and equipped with a killer sound system, this shop really sets the stage for its clientele to not just wake up, but also “amp” up. High Plains Reader was especially pleased by Classic Rock Coffee’s friendly, well trained and consistent staff. While making drinks, they make sure to time and measure everything out to ensure quality in the finished product. Its drink menu is extensive and caters to a wide range of customers, starting with the bare bones single shot of espresso to traditional espresso drinks like the Americano, macchiato, cortado, latte and cappuccino. Five to 6 different roasts of regular coffee, with loud names, are available for standard coffee drinkers. With single-origin beans, customers can be assured their beverage will always be top notch. We really liked the Back in Black dark roast; it has a nice full-bodied flavor without that overbearing acidic taste that comes with some other bold coffees. Flavored coffee drinkers will especially enjoy the Barracuda Bite, with its stimulating aroma and hint of sweetness. Classic Rock Coffee has a number of interesting and tasty specialty drinks, including The Great White Buffalo (vanilla latte), Sister Hazelnut (hazelnut latte), Cinnamon Girl (honey and cinnamon) and the Dirty White Boy (white chocolate garnished with cocoa). The drinks are well presented and taste smooth with no overly sweet or syrupy finish. If coffee is not your bag, Classic Rock has a variety of pro-

Fargo. http://classicrockcoffee.com/fargo-nd/ 701-212-4957 tein shakes (cookie monster, peanut butter and banana, German chocolate cake, and vanilla to name a few), smoothies (Fuzzy Navel, If You Like Pina Coladas, Very Berry and Blueberry Bomb), hand-picked tea, chai tea, hot chocolate and Italian sodas to quench your thirst. For adult customers, Classic Rock also offers a great selection of beers, ciders and wines (either by the glass or bottle). Wines are either red or white and vary from a lighter and fruitier Moscato to a dry and robust Cabernet. There are both fruity and dry cider options and the beer selection is either craft or import, including Fulton’s Sweet Child of Vine, Wasatch Ghostrider White IPA and Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale. Lastly, make sure to go hungry because Classic Rock Coffee serves up some good eats. With breakfast served all day, its most popular item is the “War Pig” breakfast sandwich. Cherry wood smoked ham, smoked bacon, cracked egg and American cheese all served on a sourdough bun … delicious. A great selection of soups, salads, oatmeal, giant pretzels, cookies, muffins and sandwiches make up the rest of its menu. HPR loved the Pineapple Pig (ham, sliced pineapple, and Swiss cheese all grilled on delicious artisan white bread) and the Dead Head Grateful Grilled Cheese (classic grilled cheese with an extra-cheddar taste … you can’t go wrong). We loved the rocking good time we had at Classic Rock Coffee. The ambiance is wicked, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the drinks and food are both tasty and affordable, and as a music lover, the place is throwing out some good vibes. We don’t want to ruin the surprise, but make sure you go check out its wild bathrooms too — you are in for a treat. Patrons coming in this week can ask how to register in a drawing for a pair of tickets to Motley Crue in Fargo. Party on, Classic Rock Coffee, and keep serving up your awesome and rocking drinks and eats!
