Be prepared to get dirty at Saturday’s inaugural Monster Mega Mud Run at Legare Farms on Johns Island.

monster mega mud run debuts on Johns island


wo guys long known in the charleston bodybuilding scene are branching out into the world of mud runs. tres Bennett and glenn herring have done everything from organizing bodybuilding contests to owning gyms and supplement stores and training bodybuilders, but kept hearing about the obstacle-course runs, which usually feature mud, from clients. it sounded to them like a fun way to promote fitness and a business opportunity. So with Bennett’s experience in promotions and herring’s skills in building stuff, they created an obstacle course on Legare farms on Johns island and got a decent sponsor, Monster energy drinks. and the Monster Mega Mud run was born. They originally planned to put on the first run next spring, but planning went so smoothly that they decided to hold the first event Saturday. as of last weekend, they already had 100 people signed up. Those who haven’t register still can via the website, www.monstermegamud, or before the race participant meeting at

70-foot floating bridge of plywood and foam that requires a swift foot. Like many mud runs, the event will feature a postrace party with live music performed by hollow point and Midlife crisis, food and beer. 10 a.m. Saturday. registration is $60. participants can compete as individuals or in teams of eight (four males and four females). The race starts at noon. Bennett, who organizes four bodybuilding contests a year, is excited about the new venture and location. “don’t get me wrong, bodybuilding is my love, but sometimes it feels like you’re selling the same car yearafter-year. This is something new and different,” he said. Bennett said Monster Mega is designed and constructed like no other. The course, which is somewhere between 5k and 7k, will consist of at least 17 obstacles spread out over 350 acres of farmland, tidal creeks, lakes and islands. among the obstacles are the “hang ’n’ crawl,” where athletes will have to shimmy upside down 30 feet to “The island of no return,” and the “Broken Bridge,” a

heart walk

earlier on Saturday, the largest walking event in charleston, the american heart association’s Lowcountry heart walk, will be held starting and finishing in Liberty Square adjacent to the S.c. aquarium. while the event is free, participants are asked to raise money. activities start at 8 a.m. with the walk commencing at 9 a.m. according to robyn reese of the american heart association’s Mid atlantic affiliate, last year’s event raised $607,000, and the goal this year is to draw 5,5006,000 participants and raise $700,000. Lowcountry heart walk chairwoman anita zucker said she hopes the event will “help jump start a culture of healthy living among participants and increase passion for supporting the lifesaving work of the american heart association. go to

actors will throw you for a ‘looper’ By roger Moore MCT


oseph gordon-Levitt utterly masters the Bruce willis squint, where the action hero narrows his eyes, furrows his brow and purses his lips. he gives us a little of the willis smirk, the one Bruce breaks out when he’s about to let go a whispered threat. yeah, gordon-Levitt has that whispered threat thing down, too. gordon-Levitt needs to master all Things willis for “Looper,” in which he plays a time travel-era assassin who discovers that his latest hit is on himself — the aarpeligible version of himself. Loopers are the fellows who, in the future, stand next to the very spot that some poor hoodlum from the future is shipped back to, already bound and hooded. The looper shoots the guy with a short-range shotgun, still called a blunderbuss. and if the looper is smart, he’s already got the victim lined up to land on a tarp to make cleanup a snap. Joe is such a looper, a favorite of The Boss (Jeff daniels), a loner who hoards the silver ingots that future crooks use to pay him (strapped to the victim’s body), who is addicted to the latest drug, administered through eyedrops, and a little too fond

But a crime boss of the future, nicknamed “The rain Maker,” is sending aged

loopers back through time to be executed by their younger selves. which they dutifully do even as they realize they now have only X-number of years left to live. Joe is tipped to the agony of this decision by his nervous pal, Seth (paul dano). So when his future self (willis) shows up, Joe is downright conflicted. “why don’t you do what old men do — and die!” imagine a young Bruce willis blurting that out to the grizzled, bald actionhero willis we’ve all grown to know and adore. “i remember what you do right after you do it,” old Joe explains to his “selfabsorbed and stupid” younger self, and us. Botching this job means

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in “Looper.” that Joe present and Joe future are on the run from The Boss’ minions and each other. each Joe wants to stop the other Joe from “ruining my life.” emily Blunt shows up as a rural kansas farmer who figures into the story. children enter into the plot. and things get a lot more complicated, to say the least, with flashbacks, alternative futures and the like. what would einstein say to all this? or doc Brown and Marty Mcfly? Movies about time travel always present their impon-

derables: what sort of future could it be where “disposing of a body is pretty much impossible?” and when we see somebody die in that future, what sort of dilemma are those future-killers facing? using silver as a timeless currency makes sense. But ingots are not exactly pocket money, are they? writer-director rian Johnson has concocted a tale with elements of “terminator” and “Back to the future” as well as “Jumpers” and “The omen.” it’s a science fiction film that gives you a lot of plot to chew on

and some genuine moral dilemmas about sacrifice, guilt, heinous crimes to protect the greater good and what-not. The whole thing bogs down on the farm, and at times, figuring out where this clue or that map came from, why this time-jumper loses body parts, one by one, and old Joe doesn’t, trips it up. But “Looper” is loads of fun. and when that “die hard” reboot comes around, here’s gordon-Levitt’s audition for John Mcclane. can he say “yippee ki-yay?” don’t you know it.

‘looper’ director reinvents the time-travel genre By rene rodriguez The Miami Herald


efore he made his debut with “Brick,” his awardwinning 2005 film noir set in a high school, director rian Johnson already had the idea for “Looper” down on paper. “it was a three-page script for a short film that i ended up never shooting,” he said. “i wrote it about 10 years ago, and it had been sitting in a drawer for a while — just the basic sci-fi premise of the mob in the future sending people back in time to be executed by hit men in the present.” after directing the 2008 drama “The Brothers Bloom” and two episodes of tV’s “Breaking Bad” (including the controversial “fly” episode), Johnson finally got to make his time-travel adventure, and the central idea remains intact. The film stars Joseph gordon-Levitt (who also starred in “Brick”) as Joe, a hit man living in kansas in 2044. time travel hasn’t been invented yet, but it will be in the future. when the mob wants to execute an enemy, the target gets sent

didn’t end. So there’s that. “But yes, when i was writing the scene, i was figuring out how to tame this timetravel element and not let it take over the movie. That’s why i’m so in awe of movies like ‘Back to the future’ or ‘primer’ or ‘12 Monkeys,’ any movie that figures out a way to deal with time travel, because it’s a real beast, and it has so many repercussions. i was frustrated for a while, until i decided all that stuff doesn’t matter. you get to a point in the narrative sony pictures where to stop and explain Joseph Gordon-Levitt in “Looper.” all this stuff would be so cumbersome. hopefully back in time to a cornfield, a ing paradox would cause the by that point, the audience bag over the head to conceal universe to implode. isn’t thinking about those his identity. Joe is waiting instead of wasting screen things anyway. So having there with a shotgun. time explaining away the Bruce tell Joe, ‘i don’t want it’s dirty work but easy and repercussions of such a to talk about time travel profitable, until Joe’s latest meeting, “Looper” disposes because then we’ll be here target shows up: an older with the holes in its plot in all day drawing diagrams version of himself (Bruce a quick scene at a diner in and stuff’ takes care of it. i willis), who has for some which the two Joes decide also think people have seen reason been sent back for not to dwell too much about enough time-travel movies execution. the impossibility of their by this point that they’re one of the many twists of situation. very savvy.” the time-travel genre that “i should point out that There is a lot more to “Looper” explores is the we’re not the first movie to “Looper” than a simple notion laid out in countless do this,” Johnson said with a chase film — we haven’t previous films: if someone laugh. “in ‘Back to the future even mentioned the telekiwere to travel in time and ii,’ old Biff and young Biff nesis yet — but one of the meet themselves, the result- met each other, and the world most startling things in

the movie are what willis’ Joe will resort to in order to change the past so he no longer needs to execute himself, including a shocking act most stars of his caliber would never agree to perform, even if it happens off-screen. “i totally expected there to be a big discussion with Bruce about that scene,” Johnson said. “But the only discussion we had was how excited he was about the extreme places this character went to. he wasn’t apprehensive about it, and he wasn’t protective of his movie-star image, either.” gordon-Levitt spent three hours in the makeup chair each morning donning subtle prosthetics and make-up to help him resemble a younger version of willis. The effect is initially startling — you know it’s gordon-Levitt playing the part, but he looks so different — but it ultimately helps sell the illusion that the two men are playing the same man. The actor said he remembers talking about “Looper” with Johnson as far back as the filming of “Brick” and being intrigued by the moral

complexity of the piece. “he wrote the part specifically for me, which is the first time someone has done that,” gordon-Levitt said. “The first time he showed me a draft of the completed script was two years ago. normally you get the script a few months before shooting, so it was unusual to be involved with a movie like this from such an early stage. it’s a really smart story about how violence begets violence. people do horrible things, but it’s never actually as simple as good guys and bad guys. real life is much more complicated than that.” But although the actor was excited about his role and reuniting with his director friend, when willis signed on, gordon-Levitt really went over the moon for “Looper.” “when i heard he was going to do it, i was thrilled, because he is so perfect for it: a guy who is 30 years older than me but believes he could still beat me in a fight! There are probably not that many 60-year-old dudes out there who could beat me in a fight! But he could do it. Maybe.”

Dracula, voiced by Adam Sandler, in a scene from “Hotel Transylvania.”

glum ‘hotel transylvania’ earns its ‘no vacancy’ sign By roger Moore MCT

movie review

elcome to the “hotel transylvania,” where you can check out any time you like, but you will never laugh. with apologies to The eagles, “almost never.” Sony animation got into the adam Sandler business this time out. The “cloudy with a chance of Meatballs” folks must never have seen “eight crazy nights,” Sandler’s first effort at turning his “gift” for funny voices into a cartoon. it’s a good-looking, laughstarved farce that puts dracula (Sandler) in charge of a hotel for monsters — “human-free since 1895” — and makes him an overprotective single father with a teenage daughter (Selena gomez). drac dotes on Mavis, calling her ghoulish pet-names: “My honey guts ... Sweet fangs ...” She’s turning 118 and is ready to see the world. But all daddy drac can think to do is stage a “visit” to the human village, where they all want to “eat your toes” and “shove garlic in your face.” So a birthday party at home it is, home being the hotel

with its headless doorman, witches for housekeepers and skeletal staff (literally). continental breakfast? a bagel with “scream cheese,” of course. Monsters like frankenstein (kevin James), The Mummy (ceeLo green) and The invisible Man (david Spade) are honored guests. But darned if nerdy human hiker Jonathan (andy Samberg) doesn’t stumble in and make Mavis go “zing,” as in “zing zing zing went my heartstrings.” So daddy has a problem: how to frighten the boy into skeedaddling. The movie, from “clone

The grossest thing in a hotel that has The Blob, Bigfoot and zombies staying in it? a human fiddling with the contact lens on his eyeball. eyewwwwww. The best gags come from quick cuts — drac zipping hither and thither to keep Mavis fooled, his sudden and shocking transitions to scary. The rest of what is most decidedly a “boys” comedy is humor of the toilet variety, pg-rated stuff Sandler and his cronies would reject from his “grown ups”/“zookeeper”/“That’s My Boy” screenplays. Sandler’s dracula voice isn’t awful. nor is it distinct or funny, and he is given precious little funny to say. This “hotel” was never going to earn a five-star rating. But maybe under different management ...

tJ’s beef and brew: hoof and hops on Daniel is. tJ’s beef and brew

By deidre Schipani Special to The Post and Courier


J’s Beef and Brew takes its name from owners tim Breckenridge and James nease: the “t” and “J.” Breckenridge earned his culinary credentials on the South carolina barbecue circuit, and nease shared a common passion for food and worked for Breckenridge when the twosome opened tJ’s Beef and Brew in goose creek in 2011. in early 2012, a Beef and Brew sign unfurled across the front of dublin down, an irish-inspired pub on daniel island. dublin down had replaced the guinness pub called Mccaffrey’s that ran a short lease at 245 Seven farms drive. into this restaurant landscape comes tJ’s Beef and Brew. The nooks and crannies that defined the pub are gone. floor space is dedicated to the real estate of the restaurant world: seats at the table. a small area is designated for kids with chalk, crayons, and enough “dora the explorer” and “Sesame Street” friends to entertain little ones.

moJa offerings run the gamut


very year around this time, the streets and venues of charleston come alive with the colorful sights and festive sounds of the MoJa arts festival. This year marks the 29th anniversary of this festival that celebrates the africanamerican and caribbean cultures. “Moja” is actually a Swahili word meaning “one,” and it is oneness that is being celebrated for 11 days. The festival begins today and will continue through oct. 7. Many of the events are free, and others are priced modestly, $5-$35. expect to see a variety of events including visual arts, classical music, dance, gospel, jazz, poetry, r&B music, storytelling, theater, children’s activities, traditional crafts, ethnic food and more. MoJa also has an extensive educational outreach component with workshops in public schools and a senior outreach in area homes. we were lucky enough to catch up with a few key people involved in the festival, including charleston office of cultural affairs executive director ellen dressler Moryl and local artist torrea “cookie” washington, who has curated an exhibit for this year’s event. Q: What inspired the creation of this particular type of festival many years ago? Moryl: established in 1979 to celebrate africanamerican and caribbean arts and culture in the Lowcountry, the charleston Black arts festival evolved into what is known today as the MoJa arts festival, an annual 11-day festival of

visual arts, classical music, theater, poetry, storytelling, dance, educational and senior outreach, jazz, gospel, rhythm and blues, children’s activities and traditional crafts for an audience of 50,000 people. MoJa stimulates and celebrates cultural harmony within the community and encourages participation in and access to a rich variety of traditional arts and cultures, as well as educational programs. MoJa’s mission is built around the concept of building bridges of understanding and respect for the beauty of artistic and cultural expression among all parts of the community. Q: How do you feel that the MOJA Arts Festival has affected people in the Lowcountry? Moryl: it’s raised the consciousness of the community about the importance of african-american and caribbean-american culture and how it has enhanced culture all over the Lowcountry. in addition, a lot more people have been coming out to enjoy all of the variety that the festival has to offer. Q: Cookie, as someone who has been part of the Charleston creative community for quite some time, how do you think MOJA impacts the community? washington: i think that MoJa can be a marvelous showcase for local talented artists and musicians of all kinds. good art can educate as well as entertain. Q: Tell us a little bit of how you will be participating in MOJA this year. washington: This year i will be promoting the “fin-tabulous” art exhibit i have curated that is now on view at the city gallery at waterfront park, “Mermaids and Merwomen in Black folklore: a fiber arts exhibition.” i will be giving

inspired by the Lowcoun-

try, kiawah island artist Shar duffy’s oil paintings are breathtaking landscapes depicting the beautiful hues of the surroundings we’re lucky to live in every day. when she moved here 12 years ago, duffy felt so inspired by the environment that she started really studying how to paint. after numerous classes with famous artists and lots

of hard work on her own, she’s excited to showcase her endeavors through october at the real estate Studio. “i am moved by the ever-changing marsh and expansive landscape on kiawah island,” duffy said. “after moving to a home on the kiawah river, i became enamored with the complexity of the colors in every sunset. when people see my work, i’d like them to feel a moment of awe, from the intense feeling of a storm to the light emerging from a sunset.” The real estate Studio is at 214 king St., and duffy’s show will be on display until oct. 23. call 722-5618.

if you’re not already in love with andrew Lloyd webber’s amazing musicals, get ready to fall as Sheri grace wenger directs “tell Me on a Sunday” at Midtown productions. wenger summed up the show: “This delightful and moving one-woman musical charts the course of a young, British hat designer, newly arrived in new york. She has come to follow her boyfriend, a new yorkbased musician she met in London, and she’s brimming with optimism for love and success as a new york designer.

southern living taste of charleston marquee culinary event returns with three-day fest

ByStrattonLawrence || SpecialtoThePostandCourier


ost of the recent national press for charleston’s culinary scene has gone to a handful of farm-to-table restaurants dotting the peninsula. Their chefs are national celebrities in culinary circles, bringing the Lowcountry attention for traditional dishes and innovative ideas. although those chefs and restaurants will be well-represented at the 32nd annual Southern Living taste of charleston this weekend, the threeday event is a chance to highlight the hundreds of other restaurants where locals eat on a daily basis, forming the base of our culinary scene.

taste from page 20 plan routes and navigate the speediest entry and exit possible for attendees. Britzius emphasizes the event’s charitable aspect, as well. over the course of its threedecade run, taste of charleston, along with the restaurant association’s Lowcountry oyster festival, has donated just over $1 million to the ronald Mcdonald house, hollings cancer center, hospitality heroes, Shriners hospitals for children and charleston county schools. Mickey Bakst, general manager of charleston grill (and emcee of the iron chef competition), emphasizes the role the restaurant association and taste of charleston have played in putting the holy city on the national culinary map. “when i travel to new york, people always tell me how they can’t wait to come back to charleston to eat,” Bakst said. “people are being drawn here by the culinary community. our history is great for tourism, but it’s the restaurants that give people that little something more to come here for.” The holy city now supports a second major culinary event, the BB&t charleston wine + food festival, each spring. “what’s great is that we have enough restaurants to support both,” said Britzius, emphasizing differences like the “come-one, come-all” attitude of taste of charleston, gathering the city’s scene into one place on Sunday, versus the intimacy of many wine + food festival events. Britzius recalls 1989, when hurricane hugo arrived and forced taste of charleston to be postponed. “we were under the care of the national guard, with no electricity,” she said. “The ceiling was caved in at my office, but i went up there to get something and the phone rang. it was a restaurant owner asking if we were still doing the taste.” two months later, they pulled off the event in Brittlebank park, attracting 10,000 people. favorite events like the waiters’ race have lasted over the years, but the main attraction is still the food. when your product is great, it’s natural to want to show it off. and that’s what taste of charleston is all about.

iron chef competition if you go what: four top chefs duke it out over the flames. when: 6-9 p.m. friday where: culinary institute of charleston, palmer campus, 66 columbus st. price: $50 general admission, $100 amphitheater seating for more info: every cook is accustomed to intensity. even at a short-order lunch counter, balanc-


Chefs compete during the 2010 Iron Chef Competition. The chefs were given a secret ingredient and had 45 minutes to prepare three dishes that were ready to eat. ing the volume of orders and ensuring that each plate goes out hot and fresh can be a challenge. add to that the pressure of a live audience that’s judging your abilities, and it’s enough to make even a seasoned pro sweat. “it’s the most thrilling 45 minutes that i can remember having in a kitchen,” said Steven Lusby, head chef of 82 Queen and half of last year’s winning iron chef team, along with Matthew niessner of halls chophouse. hosted by the culinary institute of charleston in its state-of-the-art amphitheater kitchen at trident technical college’s palmer campus downtown, the annual contest pits two teams of two chefs against each other in a head-to-head battle centered around a mystery ingredient. in the competition’s four-year history, the mystery ingredient has included local golden tilefish, carolina gold rice and oyster mushrooms. Last year, niessner and Lusby were victorious using pumpkin and chocolate, crafting a menu that included a

coconut-dusted lamb chop with pumpkin risotto and a chocolate Bordelaise sauce. This year, the pair will serve as judges when chefs from Lana and graze take on poogan’s porch and Burwell’s Stone fire grill. “it’s certainly not just another day in the kitchen,” niessner said. “when you’re in competition, you’re in it to win. it comes down to getting a rhythm together with your partner chef and having a good flow and understanding of each others’ philosophies. There’s a lot of strategy involved.” to break the intensity and keep the mood light for the audience, emcees tom crawford, meteorologist at aBc news 4, and Bakst will provide a play by play of the action, taking questions from the audience and samples from the chefs. “at the end of it, i’m exhausted to the core of my soul,” admits Bakst. “The attendees come from all over the country, and it’s our job to give them a show and let them see how we do it in the charleston culinary community.”

attendees have the option of purchasing tickets for a seat in the amphitheater at $100 or participating via live televised viewing areas in the vicinity for $50. all tickets include beer, wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres, as well as the possibility of sampling the chefs’ creations. “The audio/visual aspects of it are really intriguing,” culinary institute dean Michael Saboe said, touting the investment the school has made in technology for the amphitheater kitchen. “for the viewer, it’s exciting to see how the chefs interact. one may be creating a sauce while the other pan sears a fillet of grouper, while they’re constantly working in harmony on multiple dishes within a tight time frame.” The iron chef competition’s mystery ingredient this year will be supplied by growfood carolina, a collaborative nonprofit food hub that helps expand local food offerings in area restaurants.

when guests come to town, it’s only proper to show off charleston’s best. for scenery and food close to the source, nowhere in town beats Shem creek. That’s the idea behind the inaugural Sweet & Southern on Shem creek event, dreamed up by charleston restaurant association organizers as an excuse to throw a party along the iconic waterway, aiming to impress the visiting editorial staff of Southern Living in the process. “it comes down to trying to raise as much money for our charities as possible, and this seemed like an ideal signature event for taste of charleston,” said charleston restaurant association president and red’s ice house general Manager Steve carroll. “it’s an indoor and outdoor party with lots of Southern comfort food and a showcase of singer/songwriters.” featuring four local caterers, the menu draws entirely from Southern cuisine, including oyster tables, a pig pickin’, frogmore stew and everything in between. Throughout the evening, local boatmaker Scout will offer moonlight cruises down the creek to the harbor, complimentary with the event’s allinclusive ticket. “The idea is to show off Shem creek,” carroll said. “we want to give Southern Living and our other visitors a little more insight into what’s really cool in charleston, and show them the nooks and crannies.” Sumter-born and nashville, tenn.based songwriter rob crosby anchors the musical lineup. The author of numerous hit songs, including Martina McBride’s “concrete angel” and Lee greenwood’s “holdin’ a good hand,” crosby will lead a songwriter-in-the-round per-


formance featuring several of his friends from nashville. “rob has ties with Southern Living and with local venues like The windjammer, so we thought he’d provide the perfect setting for a night of great music and food,” carroll said. “we’re trying to make it a who’s who of charleston.”

Lusby of 82 Queen is equally excited about showcasing his friends at north carolina’s french Broad Brewery, pairing courses that include a goat cheese pimiento tomato pie and a deconstructed duck jambalaya. “This is a way to incorporate all of our members, bring new business in to restaurants, and offer diners a threecourse meal at a reduced cost,” charleston restaurant association’s Britzius said, pointing out the diversity and inclusion of white tablecloth establishments and casual spots. participating restaurants include: z Downtown: 82 Queen, Lowcountry Bistro, tristan, halls chophouse, ’cesca, noisy oyster, tsunami, Jim ’n nick’s, a.w.

what: stuff yourself with offerings from 50 restaurants while you enjoy the entertainment when: 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. sunday where: boone hall plantation, 1235 long point road, mount pleasant price: $15 in advance, $20 at the gate; $2 food and drink tickets for more: www.charleston or boonehall on Sunday, come hungry and pace yourself. with 50 restaurants dishing out their very best, from alligator ribs to juicy steaks, it’s easy to go overboard at the taste of charleston Main event. The restaurant tents range from familiar sports bars and chicken wing joints all the way up to the peninsula’s finest establishments. food and beverages are sold in $2 increments, with nothing topping $6. favorite events like the waiters’ race are back this year, pitting charleston’s food and beverage employees against each other in a competition to open and pour a bottle of wine, carry it through an obstacle course and serve it to a table in the fastest time possible. “we keep elements like the waiters’ race and the ice carving the same each year, while incorporating new additions like a beer garden and food and wine pairings,” said Monique Semper-flynn, special events manager for the charleston restaurant association. This year, the participating finedining restaurants will pair a wine with any menu item by request. at the 82 Queen tent, chef Lusby reveals

that he’s working up a special batch of watermelon and blackberry sangria to go along with the cuban smoked pork loin he plans to serve. whether you’re full or pacing yourself, the event offers far more than just food sampling, including a play area for children and live music from tropicalrock band homemade wine. title sponsor Southern Living expands its involvement this year with a variety of workshops in the Southern Living tent, including a “tackle your tailgate!” session at 11 a.m. drawing from the book “The official Sec tailgating cookbook.” at 12:30 p.m., editor rebecca Lang hosts a tasting of finalists from the magazine’s “Big white cake cover contest” before mediating a “Quick-fix Supper challenge” at 3:30 p.m., where attendees get to square off in their own iron chef-like battle for the chance to win an american express gift card. in addition, at 2 p.m., the magazine will give a presentation on “farm to table container gardening” that any would-be green thumb can learn from to get started with his own kitchen or windowsill flower and herb garden. “The idea is to bring Southern Living to life through interactive exhibits,” Semper-flynn said. for libations, patrons can choose between full beers or enjoy sample-size tastes from a variety of craft breweries in the beer garden. Semper-flynn points out that the taste of charleston entry price is less than the regular admission to Boone hall, and patrons are free to roam the grounds and explore the waterfront historic cabins and buildings. That is, of course, if you can manage to walk after making your way down the rows and rows of restaurant tents beckoning you to enjoy a taste of charleston’s finest.

bob Dylan Tempest/Columbia


when i was growing up, my father idolized Bob dylan. naturally, i rebelled. as a teenager, i thought his voice sounded funny, and as he didn’t exactly release his best work in the ’80s when i was in high school, i largely ignored him. i eventually came around, though. even if you don’t like dylan, you can’t deny his influence over american rock and folk music over the past halfcentury. The last decade or so has been some of dylan’s most fruitful years creatively, with albums such as “Modern

times” and “Love and Theft” showing the singer-songwriter could still write complete albums of great music. dylan’s latest, “tempest,” continues the streak. not many artists could get away with recording a 14-minute celtic-tinged waltz about the sinking of the titanic, but dylan makes it work on the album’s title track. The album is full of tunes that are retro sounding in their own ways. “duquesne whistle” sounds like an outtake from a western swing album from the ’50s, while on “Soon after Midnight” you almost expect dylan to

when i heard that former talking heads frontman david Byrne was recording an album with singer St. Vincent (aka annie erin clark), i was definitely intrigued. Both artists are known for their musical visions, so a collaboration was likely to be beyond interesting. for the most part, the album should have been billed as “david Byrne with special guest St. Vincent.” clark does get plenty of chances to shine here, but after a few spins, one really gets

the feeling that Byrne was calling all the shots. it isn’t necessarily a bad strategy. Byrne isn’t getting any younger, and while i would hope that any teen or 20-something these days would be aware of his contributions to popular music, it’s entirely possible that some younger music fans might not recognize Mr. Same as it ever was. The album incorporates a brass band and electronic music, sometimes in the same song, and mixes it deftly with the two voices.

Byrne shines on tracks such as “who” and “i am an ape,” while St. Vincent has her moments on “ice age” and “The forest awakes.” for the most part, though, the music is reminiscent of past Bryne releases such as “everything That happens will happen today” and “feelings.” That isn’t a bad thing, but folks tuning in for more St. Vincent than Byrne might be in for disappointment.

Singer-songwriter haley dreis grew up in columbia, and according to her bio, she can’t remember a time when she wasn’t playing or writing music. Starting with violin lessons at 6 (after begging her mom), dreis has stayed busy musically all her life, and has previously released two well-received independent albums. for her third full-length studio recording, dreis shot for the stars. and from the first few spins of “Lady with a rocket,” i’d have to say that she has found her groove as far as songwriting

and performing go. with a style reminiscent of Sara Bareilles, the songs on the new album are just the right balance of lyrical substance and pop goodness. That balance could so easily have been upset on songs such as “Little white Lies” and the title track, but dreis absolutely nails it. The music on “Lady with a rocket will likely appeal to a range of ages and musical tastes. i’ll put it this way: when i played the cd in my car, i actually let it run through without skipping songs. also, my 6-year-old son, who normally

goes out of his way to ignore music i like (he’s perfecting his eye roll as we speak), laughed at the lyrics about eating chunky Monkey ice cream on “Snuggly,” and actually asked me to play “Mr. know it all” a second time so he could sing the “uhoh, uh-oh” parts. if that doesn’t scream accessibility, then i don’t know what does.

break into a round of doo-wop singing (he doesn’t). other subjects for songs include John Lennon (“roll on John”), suicide and murder (“tin angel”) and massacres (the bluesy “early roman kings”). dylan’s voice is a raspy, phlegmy shadow of its former self, sounding more like tom waits these days, but even that somehow works here. “tempest” is dylan’s 35th studio album, and it ranks right up there with his best stuff. key tracks: “duquesne whistle,” “early roman kings,” “tempest”

Curren$y By Matthew godBey Special to The Post and Courier


Louisiana-based rapper curren$y always seemed a little ahead of his time. Matching well-read lyrics with an understated delivery and rhythm, curren$y has set himself apart from the pack of new orleans rappers in recent years. But the emergence has been long fought and complicated, lingering for more than a decade and twisting through multiple label contracts and fallouts. after a few years on the new orleans circuit, curren$y first surfaced in 2002 as a member of Master p’s 504 Boyz, serving as a featured artist on several tracks with Master p, c-Murder and Soulja Slim but never releasing an album of his own. he joined Birdman and Slim’s cash Money records, in conjunction with Lil wayne’s young Money entertainment, in 2004. again, he would be used as a featured artist, this time on Lil wayne’s “dedication 2” and “Tha carter ii.” The label released a mixtape in 2004 and a single, “where da cash at,” in 2006. a second mixtape was released in 2007, but all of curren$y’s other projects were shelved, prompting him to leave the label that year. Things began looking up in 2009 when the young rapper released his digital-only debut, “This ain’t no Mixtape,” through amalgam digital. But the road to stardom again began to wash out after curren$y signed with damon dash’s dd172 imprint, which was distributed by def Jam, in 2010 and released “pilot talk” and “pilot talk ii” the same year. after a disagreement over distribution rights, curren$y sued dash for allegedly illegally releasing his albums and misappropriating the profits. curren$y carried on the way he had his entire career, releasing three albums in two years and joining the ranks of the latest hiphop all-stars.

today, he is being regarded as one of the pioneers of the modern-day wave of smarter, smoother hip-hop alongside such well-known rappers as drake, wiz khalifa, wale, yelawolf and kendrick Lamar, among others. curren$y will perform tonight at the Music farm, 32 ann St. tickets are $50 Vip and are available online at or at the Music farm box office. doors open at 8:30 p.m. go to or call 577-6989.


probably the last place you would expect to hear the beginnings of a new music sensation is on the front porch of a Massachusetts frat house, coming from the mouths of a couple of college bros sporting the latest air flights and clean cuts. But then again, the last place you would expect to look is often where you find the biggest surprises. Such a fortune cookie statement holds true for Boston-based duo fresh aer Movement, or simply aer. equal parts Mcs and acoustic singers, david von Mering and carter Schultz released their debut mixtape, “The reach,” last year, an online introduction to audiences that already has garnered 100,000 downloads.

ace’s on bridge


Timing the play to take advantage of all possibilities can be very difficult. Today’s deal defeated one of the best declarers in the country (who shall remain nameless). Against four spades West led the diamond ace and king, then switched to the club four. Declarer won in the dummy and took a spade finesse. When thatwaswrongandclubsfailedto break 3-3, he had to go one down. Can you see how he could have done better? Since he needed one of the major-suit finesses for certain, he should have won the club in hand and run the heart queen. In practice, West would have covered with the king (it doesn’t help him to duck), and declarer wins with dummy’s ace. Only now

does declarer play a spade to the queen. West wins and no doubt continues with another club. Declarer wins in dummy, draws trump, then cashes the heart jack and crosses to the club king. If clubs are 3-3, he has no more losers. He can ruff a heart, cash his long club, and ruff a diamond with dummy’s last trump. However, when clubs fail to break, he can take a ruffing heart finesse. The king and 10 have gone, and East just has the nine poised over dummy’s eight-seven. This finesse is certain to succeed because declarer knows that West started with two spades,fourclubs,fivediamonds (for his overcall) and therefore only two hearts, both of which have been played.

today’s horoscope aries (march 21-april 19): listen carefully and observe what those around you are doing. it will be important to stay in the loop. taurus (april 20-may 20): pick and choose your arguments and make sure you know what you are talking about before you engage in a conversation. gemini (may 21-June 20): you won’t see what’s going on around you. your emotions will supersede practicality, resulting in trouble at work and with those you count on for help. cancer (June 21-July 22): don’t hold back; clear the air, even if it means you’ll have to face adversity. it’s better to know where you stand and who is by your side at the end of the day.

leo (July 23-aug. 22): gravitate toward the people who do share your sentiments and are striving to make the same improvements as you.

sagittarius (nov. 22-Dec. 21): avoid serious pursuits that are not clearly defined. you will end up running in circles if you believe everything you hear.

virgo (aug. 23-sept. 22): choose your friends wisely. you may be attracted to someone for the wrong reasons. don’t let emotional deception lead to a problem.

capricorn (Dec. 22Jan. 19): learn from the past. expose what hasn’t worked and remember who may have gotten in your way.

libra (sept. 23oct. 22): leave the past behind you and look to new opportunities that will enhance your chance to be successful.

aQuarius (Jan. 20-feb. 18): don’t let anger show your weakness. concentrate on improvement and getting the most out of whatever you pursue.

scorpio (oct. 23-nov. 21): rely on your intuition and you will make good personal and creative choices. a chance to make money is available, but will only happen if you adjust what and the way you invest.

pisces (feb. 19-march 20): follow your intuition, but don’t overreact, overdo or overspend. not everyone will tell you the truth, and it’s up to you to decide what is fact and what is fiction.

ear aBBy: My husband and i just got some shocking news. his father, 81, is leaving his wife of 60 years! Mom is not entirely self-sufficient and seems dependent on him. dad found himself a younger woman, a “chick” of 70. he has announced that he still has sexual needs and wants to enjoy the rest of his life. My husband thinks it will be a short-term fling and he’ll return to Mom, but she says she won’t take him back. (who knows how she’ll feel later?) My problem is, no matter what happens between them, i’m having a hard time even considering forgiving him for his selfishness. i know it’s not my place as his daughter-in-law, but i don’t know how i can bring myself to face him feeling as i do. — JudgMentaL Judy in arizona DEAR JUDGMENTAL JUDY: If your mother-inlaw hasn’t already done so, make sure she gets the best legal advice possible. After 60 years of marriage, there should be plenty of assets to split. They will make her financially independent, and from that, emotional independence will follow. While it’s possible your father-in-law may want to reunite after the fling, it is equally possible that when the “chick” sees his nest egg is cracked in half, he will be less appealing to her. Only time will tell. In the meantime, keep the peace, bide your time, and as tempting as it may be to voice everything that’s on your mind, keep your lip zipped. This isn’t your marriage, so don’t stir the pot. dear aBBy: i have been married to “tom,” the love of my life, for four years. we

have been together more than 10 years and have a 2-year-old daughter. tom was diagnosed with a terminal illness early last year and is close to the end now. he’s very angry, which i understand, but he takes it out on me since i am his caregiver. i’m also a fulltime student about to graduate with my degree in registered nursing, so i’m busy all the time. Between school, my daughter and giving full care to my husband, i’m stressed out. he yells a lot about everything, from money woes to the wrong bread on his sandwich. to top it off, we haven’t been intimate since our daughter was born. i’m not considering straying from our marriage, but at times i feel i’ll be ready to date as soon as he’s gone. it makes me feel guilty. is it wrong to feel this way? do you have any advice to help me through this tragic time in our lives? — depreSSed and LoneLy in Michigan DEAR DEPRESSED: Yes. Stop beating yourself up for experiencing human emotions at a time when you’re hauling a load that would crush an ox. Of course your husband is angry. He has good reason to be, but he’s misdirecting it on you. Guilt is the last thing you need to add to what you’re dealing with. It’s normal to crave the closeness you haven’t experienced. If there are counseling services offered at your nursing school, please avail yourself of them. Venting your feelings in a supportive environment will lighten your load and help you cope with your husband. There are also online support groups for caregivers. If you reach out in either direction, you’ll feel better. It also could be helpful to ask your husband’s doctor for a referral to someone who does end-of-life counseling for him. visit
