Woman: ‘I Heard There Are Some Bars Around Here?’ Police say a 33-year-old woman did them a favor when she drove her badly damaged car onto Alachua County Jail property in Florida this week. The woman was charged with driving under the influence after jail officials noticed she was showing signs of impairment and called police. The woman’s breath samples were nearly three times the legal limit, police said. (AP) COUCH POTATOES

Victim of the Target breach? Your data could be anywhere New York The hackers behind the recent Target data breach are likely a world away and nearly impossible to ﬁnd. That’s the consensus among outside cybercrime experts as Target, the Secret Service and the FBI continue their investigation of the preChristmas data heist in which hackers stole about 40 million debit- and credit-card numbers and also took personal information — including email addresses, phone numbers,

names and home addresses — for an additional 70 million people. In the aftermath of the breach, millions of Americans have been left to wonder what has become of their personal information. The
information can be used in a variety of nefarious ways. Criminals can attempt to use the credit-card numbers and place charges on the original owners’ accounts or they can use other pieces of personal infor-
mation to steal people’s identities. In cases where such a massive amount of information is stolen, criminals generally divide the data into chunks and sell the parcels through online black markets. After thieves purchase the numbers, they can encode the data onto new, blank cards. Or they can simply use the numbers online. Crooks often have the option to buy cards last used in their area. That way, the cards attract less attention from banks. That could explain why some debit- and credit-card numbers of Target customers from South Texas turned up in an arrest at the U.S.-Mexico border earlier this week. BREE FOWLER (AP)
Boy, 8, Killed in Fire, Hailed as Hero for Saving Six Penfield, N.Y. WEDDING BOOT CAMP

An 8-year-old boy who died while trying to rescue his disabled grandfather from the man’s burning mobile home had saved the lives of six relatives after being awoken by a burning blanket, authorities said.

The ﬁre chief said nine people were staying in the trailer when the ﬁre started around 4:45 a.m. Monday. Tyler, spending the night at his grandfather’s because school was off for the holiday, was awoken when the blanket covering his 4-year-old cousin caught ﬁre, Ebmeyer said. Tyler woke up six of his relatives, and they all made it outside. The boy then ran back to the room where his disabled grandfather, Lewis Beach, was sleeping. Fireﬁghters found Tyler’s body a few feet from Beach’s, Ebmeyer said. (AP)

Washington Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden denied accusations that he was working for a foreign government when he stole countless classiﬁed documents detailing U.S. surveillance programs and efforts to gather information on world leaders. In an interview with the New Yorker published Tuesday evening on the magazine’s website, Snowden said claims that he may have been working for the Russians as a spy were “absurd.” On NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, called Snowden a “thief.” Rogers said he believed somebody must have helped Snowden steal the documents.
Today, Edward Snowden is expected to participate in an online Q&A at freesnowden.is and respond to the president’s NSA speech.

Rogers rejected the notion that it was a coincidence that Snowden eventually found refuge in Russia. But the lawmaker offered no proof that Snowden was working in concert with Russian intelligence. Snowden told the magazine that he “clearly and unambiguously acted alone, with no assistance from anyone, much less a government.” He said the allegations wouldn’t “stick,” adding that they were false and that “the American people are smarter than politicians think they are.” ADAM GOLDMAN (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The Economics of the Iran Nuclear Deal Brussels France is sending business executives by the planeload to Iran. German and Dutch entrepreneurs are taking courses on how to close a deal in Tehran, and carmakers are drawing up plans for investment. Europe’s business community is abuzz with preparations to rush back into Iran as some sanctions are suspended. And the interest is welcome — Iran is desperate to revive its economy after years of isolation. Under a deal with world powers, Tehran has agreed to curb its nuclear program in exchange
Reviving Big Oil
for some sanctions relief and the unfreezing of about $4.2 billion in overseas assets. The sides now have six months to conclude a permanent deal. As always, in business, it’s about getting in ﬁrst.
The Opportunity For businesses, getting into Iran is a chance not to be missed. The country boasts a well-educated population of about 75 million and some of the world’s largest oil and gas reserves. The possibilities for growth are obvious judging by how much trade has fallen. Imports to the 28-nation EU, Iran’s biggest trading partner, plunged from $22 billion in 2011 to a mere $534 million in the ﬁrst half of 2013.
For foreign ﬁrms, the biggest prize in Iran is undoubtedly its sanctions-crippled oil and gas sector. “Iran clearly has huge resources. Its production has been curtailed in recent years,” oil company BP said. “It clearly has a lot of potential.” It did warn, however, of “a very complicated political process.” Iran’s oil and gas industry is in poor shape since sanctions often made it impossible to upgrade production sites. Iran also needs to modernize its business laws, said Howard Rogers, director of the Natural Gas Research program at the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies. Iran’s oil minister is holding meetings in Turkey this week to seek closer cooperation. JUERGEN BAETZ (AP)

Little Progress Made in First Day of Syria Talks
UKRAINE’S ONCE-PEACEFUL POLITICAL PROTESTS have turned into increasingly heated clashes with police.

Above, an anti-government protester prepares to throw a Molotov cocktail as fire surrounds him.
Pope’s Thoughts, Revealed: Pope John Paul II’s secretary “did not have the courage” to burn all of the pontiff’s notes after his death, and is now having some of them published, he said Wednesday. The book, “Very Much in God’s Hands. Personal Notes 1962-2003,” comes out Feb. 5 in Poland. Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz said that he was motivated to save some of the notes by the “despair of historians” when the letters of Pope Pius XII were burned after his death, as he had wished. (AP)
Furiously divided from the start, representatives of Syrian President Bashar Assad and the rebellion against him threatened Wednesday to collapse a peace conference intended to lead them out of civil war. Assad’s future in the country devastated by three years of bloodshed was at the heart of the sparring, which took place against a pristine Alpine backdrop as Syrian forces and rebel ﬁghters clashed across a wide area from Aleppo and Idlib in the north to Daraa in the south. The Western-backed opposition said Assad’s departure was their starting point, echoing the position laid out by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. “The resolution cannot be about one man’s — or one family’s — insistence on clinging to power,” Kerry said. The response from the government delegation was ﬁrm and blunt.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has said Bashar Assad must cede power.
“There will be no transfer of power, and President Bashar Assad is staying,” Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi told reporters. With little common ground, the two sides were to meet separately today with a U.N. negotiator, Lakhdar Brahimi, who said he still did not know if they were ready to sit at the same table when talks begin in earnest Friday.

Washington Thousands of abortion opponents poured out of Masses, concerts and training sessions at midday Wednesday and headed toward the Mall in frigid weather for the 41st annual March for Life. With temperatures hovering around 10 degrees, the crowd was smaller than usual. A morning 5K run-walk was canceled and the pre-rally concert was scaled back. But people who turned out said they were focusing on modernizing and making more inclusive their movement and its public face
— the march, which is the world’s biggest anti-abortion event. Several marchers expressed concern that the annual march is disproportionately white and Catholic, and talked about how to diversify ethnically and politically. In fact, the event is changing, if slowly. For decades, it was run largely by one woman out of her home ofﬁce in Virginia. But since Nellie Gray passed away in 2012, the March staff and its budget have doubled in size. It has waded into social media and created the #whywemarch hashtag. March President Jeanne Mona-

Va. May Revive the Electric Chair Backstory The electric chair was last used in Virginia in January 2013, when 42-year-old Robert Gleason Jr. chose to die by electrocution. He was the first prisoner since 2010 to do so, and there were no complications. ( T WP)
Washington Virginia lawmakers, facing a shortage of the drugs used to perform lethal injections, are moving toward re-embracing use of the electric chair. The House of Delegates overwhelmingly passed a bill Wednesday that would make electrocution the default method of death for condemned prisoners if lethal injection is not available. Currently, the chair
is only used by speciﬁc request of the inmate sentenced to die. Virginia, like other states that allow capital punishment, is struggling with a shortage of the drugs that are used to execute prisoners by lethal injection. European manufacturers will not sell chemicals
for use in executions, and a major U.S. supplier of lethal injection drugs halted production in 2011. Only four states still use the electric chair — Alabama, Virginia, Florida and South Carolina, according to research gathered by the Death Penalty Information Cen-

ter. (Kentucky and Tennessee allow use of the chair for crimes committed before 1998). All of those states only electrocute inmates who speciﬁcally request it. A Senate version of the bill is currently in committee. At a recent hearing, Sen. Kenneth Alexander, a funeral home director, questioned use of the chair, saying it left the deceased “disﬁgured.” “ It ’s a b a r b a r i c w a y f o r the state to execute people,” Del. Scott Surovell said after Wednesday’s vote. “It’s disappointing to me that my colleagues want to take a step backwards.” R ACHEL WEINER (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Student enrollment is falling in most of Maryland and Virginia’s community colleges, echoing a national trend in a sector of higher education closely tied to the economy. There were 190,528 students in Virginia’s 23 public two-year colleges in fall 2013, according to new data. That represented a drop of 2 percent from the previous year and 3 percent from three years earlier. In Maryland, there were 139,198 students in the state’s 16 community colleges last fall. The total was down 4 percent since 2012 and nearly 6 percent since 2010. The numbers underscore a challenge for community college leaders: Their schools often trend in the opposite direction of the nation’s economy. When the economy tanks, demand usually surges for seats in community colleges as people seek new credentials to improve their job prospects. But when the economy shows improvement, the demand slackens. That pattern held true in the aftermath of the 2008 ﬁnancial crisis. NICK ANDERSON (THE WASHINGTON POST )

McDonnell Case No Cinch Prosecutors will face difficulties in proving charges, legal experts say
No Delay A judge has refused to delay former Gov. Bob McDonnell’s initial court appearance, which is set for Friday. The former governor requested a one-week delay because one of his attorneys is out of the country at a remote location and would have a tough time getting back to Richmond this week. (AP)
Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has admitted he used “poor judgment” in taking luxury gifts and loans from a prominent businessman, but federal prosecutors will face difficult challenges in proving a crime was committed. “They can’t just show that he got these gifts, but must prove that he received them in exchange for ofﬁcial acts,” said Randall Eliason, a George Washington University law professor. “The defense is going to say, ‘Hey, this is what a Virginia governor is supposed to do — promote Virginia businesses.’ ” The former governor and his wife were charged Tuesday in a 14-count indictment. To make their case, prosecutors need to show that McDonnell, with his wife as a coconspirator, offered to provide ofﬁcial help to Star Scientiﬁc CEO Jonnie Williams Sr. or his company in exchange for gifts. The government doesn’t need to show that Williams’ company actually beneﬁtted — only that help was promised. Several experts say the steady stream of gifts the First Family sought and accepted from Williams — including $15,000 to cater their daughter’s wedding, golf greens fees, vacations and $120,000 in loans — creates a very strong circumstantial case. “The biggest problem the government has is, what ofﬁcial act did he take as governor to further the interests of Star Scientiﬁc?” said defense attorney Andrew McBride. In their indictment, prosecutors say the governor hosted a product launch for Star’s new dietary supplement, Anatabloc, promoted it
STEVE HELBER (AP)
Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, were indicted Tuesday on corruption charges after a monthslong federal investigation.
Indictment Revelations April 11-13, 2011 Maureen McDonnell called Star Scientific chief executive Jonnie Williams and asked him to take her on a shopping trip to buy a dress by designer Oscar de la Renta. The first lady explained that she was attending a political event at the Union League Club and promised to get Williams seated next to Gov. Bob McDonnell.
May 2, 2011 Maureen McDonnell arranged a meeting at the governor’s mansion for Williams, where she explained that she and her husband were having “severe financial difficulties.” She asked for a $50,000 loan and said she could assist Star Scientific but needed his financial help. Williams insisted on talking directly to the governor, who said he would appreciate a two-year loan at 5 percent interest. Williams agreed and said there was no need for formal loan papers.
July 23, 2011 Maureen McDonnell sent her chief of staff to a Star Scientific symposium. The following week, the governor, his wife and family relaxed at Williams’ vacation home on Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia. (T WP)

“Because of the McDonnell brand, I think some jurors will come with an open mind that this could have been a misunderstanding, rather than a corrupt plot.” — PE TER ZEIDENBERG, A DEFENSE LAWYER, WHO ADDED, “HE DOESN’T HAVE THIS PERSONA AS A SLEAZY POLITICIAN”
at public events, arranged meetings between Williams and senior state health ofﬁcials and worked alongside his wife to push for state researchers to consider conducting trials of the product. Nearly all public corruption prosecutions are uphill battles, because proving a public ofﬁcial’s intent is so tricky. Even though former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich was caught on tape trying to sell Barack Obama’s Senate seat, the jury deadlocked on most of the
charges in his first trial. In the McDonnells’ case, the prosecution faces other unique challenges, experts say. First, much of the government’s case about a corrupt agreement hinges on the testimony of Williams. The executive was under investigation for possible securities violations when he decided to cooperate with federal investigators. Williams obtained immunity in exchange for his testimony, and defense lawyers have said they will seek to show he’s not credible. “If it comes down to the word of one person, who has real incentive to tell a story the way the government would like to hear it, jurors are likely to be skeptical and focused on those motivations,” said Andrew Wise, a defense lawyer. In addition, Maureen McDonnell comes across in the charging papers as the dominant actor — a First Lady striving to live the high life and requesting more and more help from Williams. She is also the person most actively pursuing ways the state can promote Williams’ company and get statefunded research for its product. “The indictment’s a little thin on what Gov. McDonnell did.

Ex-college athletes, Summer Olympians pick up bobsledding
Masahiro Tanaka agreed to a sevenyear deal with the New York Yankees.
Olympics For former George Washington University shortstop Elana Meyers, the chance to make the 2004 Olympic softball team represented a dream she’d had since age 9. But she was so desperate and nervous, she turned in what she calls “the worst tryout anybody has ever had in the history of tryouts.”
Donations Needed The Jamaican Olympic bobsled team appeared at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday to promote their trip to Sochi and seek some much-needed cash. When the team was approved entry this month, Jamaican officials said they didn’t have the money to travel to Russia to compete. Coach Wayne Thomas said some funding has flowed in, but the team is still in need. (AP)

THE 100-METER HURDLES IN THE LONDON OLYMPICS
All three female brakemen named to the 2014 Olympic bobsled team Sunday are converted track stars. Three-time Olympian Lauryn Williams, who won gold in the 4x100-meter relay at the London Olympics in 2012 and silver in the 100 meters in Athens, Greece, in 2004, and hurdler Lolo Jones, who fell short of the podium at the 2008 and 2012 Summer Games, will join Evans in the Sochi-bound lineup. The Sochi Olympics open Feb. 7. In men’s bobsled, the NFL has been fertile terrain for push athletes, with Heisman Trophy winner and NFL running back Herschel Walker famously recruited for the 1992 Albertville Games. He and driver Brian Shimer ﬁnished seventh. “Just because you may not be able to pursue the sport you played in college or in high school on a professional level, that doesn’t just end your dream of going to the Olympics or being a professional athlete,” Evans said. “There are sports like bobsled that allow you to be these powerhouse athletes, to travel the world, win medals and compete on that elite level. And nothing beats it. I’m living proof.”

Unwilling to surrender her Olympic dream even after three years had passed, Meyers contacted U.S. Bobsled ofﬁcials, who were intrigued by the Georgia native’s explosive power and bull-headed determination. Meyers went on to claim bronze at the 2010 Vancouver Games, supplying the all-important push as brakeman on her two-man sled. Today, at 29, she’s preparing for next month’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, where she’s expected to pilot the top U.S. women’s sled and get that critical push from former Illinois shot putter and sprinter Aja Evans, 25, a three-time Big Ten champion who took up bobsled just last year. Bobsledding has emerged as the second-career-of-choice for a growing number of former college athletes, as well as Summer Olympians who simply can’t get enough of the Olympic experience. The trend is particularly evident in women’s bobsled, which didn’t become a fullﬂedged Olympic sport until 2002 and has no established feeder system in the United States. “We’ve all played different sports,” Meyers said of her fellow U.S. bobsledders. “Bobsled is a universal sport, and most people don’t know that. Anybody can slide down a hill.”
Elana Meyers, front, and Aja Evans will compete in next month’s Sochi Olympics.

Japanese Ace Heads To Yankees MLB The New York Yankees and prized Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka agreed Wednesday to a $155 million, seven-year contract. In addition to the deal with the 25-year-old right-hander, the Yankees must pay a $20 million fee to his Japanese team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. After missing the playoffs for the second time in 19 years, the Yankees went on a free agent spending spree this offseason, also adding catcher Brian McCann and outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran. The four big deals totaled $438 million. Big league teams had until Friday to reach an agreement with Tanaka, who was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year as the Golden Eagles won the Japan Series title.

Teen Mom: The Movies

Damien Jurado’s folk gets extra freaky with ‘Brothers and Sisters’ Music Seattle-based folk musician Damien Jurado just released what is easily the strangest record of his near 20-year career. “Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son,” out this week, is full of far-flung influences: dub, Brazilian psychedilia, The Grateful Dead, Christian rock godfather Larry Norman, King Crimson and Phil Spector. Layers of psychedelic instrumentation, wandering tape-delay sounds and dystopian lyrics make for a record as confusing as it is beautiful. It’s a straight up trip. “I just wanted to create a record that you can’t really categorize,”
INDIES & ARTIES
Jurado says. “You hear so much influence, but you can’t really put it in the rock section, because it’s not really a rock record — nor is it a folk record. I love records like that.” A f ter almost t wo decades of making mainly acoustic folk albums, which Jurado says were not fully representative of his tastes, he’s finally embracing his more eccentric impulses. He has learned to follow his muse wherever it leads, even when it means starting over completely. “I had a whole record written,” Jurado says. “Then, a week before going to see [producer and Shins member] Richard Swift in the studio, I scratched the record. And I decided to write an entirely different record instead.” Jurado spent a week writing and just two-and-a-half days recording the sonically dense “Brothers and
“It’s the ﬁrst tour I’ve ever done where I feel like I’m going out like it’s a book tour. I’m just going to be reading passages from the book.”
Sisters.” The lyric sheet — with references to UFOs, the second coming and metallic clouds — reads like a sci-fi epic, or an excerpt from a Cormac McCarthy novel, not something written in only seven days. “This record has such a life of its own and its own world — it doesn’t even need me,” Jurado says. Perhaps that’s why Jurado prefers to play these new songs alone and on acoustic guitar. “They’re never again going to hear these songs like this,” Jurado says, of the stripped down performances. “It’s the first tour I’ve ever done where I feel like I’m going out like it’s a book tour. I’m just going to be reading passages from the book.” DREW LITOWITZ (FOR E XPRESS)

windows,” Wooddell said. As their colorists transformed the two actors into Victorian playboys, we put their friendship to the test, “Newlywed Game”-style. SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)
If Greg wanted to get out of a boring dinner like his character in the play, what excuse would he use? Greg: I’d just say, “I’m too tired I need to get to sleep.” Tony: I wrote down “Hamlet Audition tomorrow.” Greg: That’s a good one. I’ll remember that. Is Greg more earnest, meaning truthful, or is he more like Earnest the character — a big hypocrite? Greg: I’m very lower-case earnest. Tony: He is. He just proposed to his girlfriend; nothing’s more earnest than that. He made an honest woman out of her.
Better Casting Through Chemistry What makes a perfect cast? Best friends as the two leading men Stage Weeks before rehearsals began for the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest,” director Keith Baxter got a fortuitous phone call from actress Maggie Smith. “I still needed a Miss Prism, and my great friend Maggie said, ‘Have you thought about Patricia Conolly?’ ” Baxter says. “I hadn’t, but I knew she’d be perfect. It’s pretty good to have Maggie Smith as your casting agent, isn’t it?” Appa rent ly A-list t hespians all have one another’s numbers on speed dial, because Baxter rang up Conolly and cast her forthwith.
With that final touch, Baxter felt he had an ideal cast, especially because his two lead actors, Anthony Roach (who plays Algernon Moncrieff) and Gregory Wooddell (Jack Worthing), are best friends in real life and in the play. “That chemistry is enormously important to driving the narrative forward,” Baxter says. In a Capitol Hill salon, the two lead actors bantered like Wilde characters while getting their hair dyed a nearly matching blond for the play. Even before the dye job, they looked pretty similar, and, as it turns out, they live across the street from each other in Manhattan. “It was weird,” Wooddell said. “Tony found out where I was living and —” “I’m on the second floor, so I can’t quite look into his window,” Roach quipped. “That’s when I got bars on my
Name Games, Mind Games Best friends Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff both develop alter egos named “Earnest,” which they use to avoid tiresome Victorian social obligations. Things get complicated when Jack woos worldly Gwendolen and Algy attempts to win sweet Cecily under the assumed name.
If Greg owed money like his character, to whom would he owe it? Greg: The local cheese shop. Tony: I wrote down “the Stolichnaya vodka company.” If Tony had an alter ego like his character, what would it be? Tony: I would be a private eye named Roberto. Greg: I wrote down, “The Pimp of Venice.” Tony: That is actually Roberto’s cover, being a pimp in Venice. No one suspects him. If someone insulted Tony, how would he respond? Tony: Naturally, I would have an instant witty quip with a double entendre that somehow insulted his heritage. Greg: I said, “sulk and cry.” Tony: Keith would agree with that. Which “Earnest” girl would Tony date: a Cecily or a Gwendolen? Tony: A Cecily, because she is sweet and pure. Greg: Both! Why choose?

MUSIC RIFFS A New Bass Face There’s trouble in Pixieland. Last June, founding bassist Kim Deal abruptly quit The Pixies. Soon after, Kim Shattuck was hired as a conveniently named replacement. But she proved incompatible and was fired — over the phone — in November. Now, Frank Black and Co. have recruited Paz Lenchantin, above, a former member of A Perfect Circle and Zwan, to play bass on The Pixies’ 2014 quasi-reunion tour. In many ways, Deal was The Pixies’ bedrock, with her vocals and basslines adding warmth and stability to the band’s erratic song structures. How will Lenchantin measure up? We’ve rounded up some of The Pixies’ most bass-centric songs so you know what to listen for at Strathmore on Sunday. DREW LITOWITZ (FOR E XPRESS)
1 ‘Hey’ Where many of The Pixies’ most notable songs use a simple, pulsing bassline to ground them, “Hey,” from 1989’s “Doolittle,” derives much of its melody from an elastic baseline that serves as the backdrop for Black’s call-out vocals.
2 ‘Monkey Gone to Heaven’ The interplay between strings and a walking bassline make this one of the band’s lushest and most memorable songs.
3 ‘Break My Body’ This dancy bass melody from 1988’s “Surfer Rosa” subverts a steadier rhythm with an expressive lowend that confuses, in the way the best Pixies songs do.
4 ‘I Bleed’ A melodic bassline is the backbone for the dissonant, dueling vocals between Black and Deal.
5 ‘Here Comes Your Man’ While the chorus’ jangly guitar mostly overshadows its bass counterpart, bass acrobatics take center stage during this track’s verses. Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda; Sun., 8 p.m., sold out; 301581-5100, strathmore.org. (Grosvenor-Strathmore)

truck,” Brown says. “As long as you’re in water that doesn’t have 10-foot waves you’ll be OK.”
Go Play in Traffic How would a monster truck handle rush hour? Ahead of Monster Jam, we found out. D.C. traffic is caused by two factors: jerks and idiots. Sure, volume and infrastructure all contribute to time spent envisioning a ray gun that could vaporize any car that blocks the box. And you know what? Every bridge in this city can bite it. Chain Bridge, Key Bridge, Roosevelt Bridge — all you cause is pain. There is hope, and it’s 12 feet tall and driven by Randy Brown. He’s driven Grave Digger, one of the stars of the Monster Jam monster truck tour, since 2003. A seemingly mild-mannered guy with a touch of a Southern twang, Brown will pilot Grave Digger on Friday and Saturday at Verizon Center. There, they’ll go up against other four-wheeled fiends in races and freestyle competitions (i.e. who can do the best stunts). Among Grave Digger’s enemies: the Superman-themed Man of Steel and Crushstation, the “Monstah Lobstah.” We asked Brown how monster trucks (were they street legal, which they are not) could overcome common problems facing car commuters, and it sounds like Grave Digger is just the thing for easing congestion. By driving over it. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)

PROBLEM: You have a neighbor who never looks before pulling out of her driveway. GRAVE DIGGER SOLUTION: Make contact. “All you have to do is just bump her ever so slightly,”
PROBLEM: You need a one-way street to be one way the other way. GRAVE DIGGER SOLUTION: Grave Digger gets what Grave Digger wants “You go the way you want, and [traffic] will pull off to the side and let you go through. Then they’ll probably change the direction of the one-way street from then on.” PROBLEM: Parking GRAVE DIGGER SOLUTION: The truck won’t fit in most garages, but Brown says that’s not a worry. “We actually have four-wheel steering, so you can parallel park it pretty much anywhere,” he says. “If there’s not enough room, you can always pull up on the trunk of the car in front of you.”
PROBLEM: Jerks won’t let you merge. GRAVE DIGGER SOLUTION: Grave Digger always has rightof-way. “We don’t merge with Grave Digger,” Brown says. “We go the off-roading route and just go around everybody.”
PROBLEM: The cost of gas. GRAVE DIGGER SOLUTION: Not a good one. “We get five gallons per mile,” Brown says. (Not five miles per gallon. FIVE GALLONS PER MILE.) Grave Digger holds 22 gallons, so you’d be stopping every 4.4 miles to fill ’er up. The trucks are freight-shipped to the arena and require refills after every show.
PROBLEM: Water main break. GRAVE DIGGER SOLUTION: Push on through! “We might worry when the waves get taller than the

Creating a Monster
A Monster Jam truck is a machine that is custom-built to kick ass, take names, and then kick those names’ asses. Here’s what’s behind the metal to which one puts the pedal. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)
BODY AND DESIGN Monster Jam truck bodies are fiberglass that’s at least partially shaped by hand. The elaborate designs are a combination of decals and airbrushing, the application of which can take more than 40 hours per truck. Since the bodies are often destroyed during shows, truck artists will probably never run out of work.
SEAT The drivers’ seats are custommolded to each individual’s body and the seat is in the center of the truck, both for visibility and even weight distribution. Some trucks have additional seats so people can take rides at special events, but those rides do not include flipping upside-down or other stunts.
ENGINE The engines in the Monster Jam trucks are methanol-injected, which because of science delivers more oxygen to the engine, giving it more power.
TIRES Monster Jam truck tires must be 66 inches high and 43 inches wide. That means that each tire is one Josh Hutcherson tall and one 5-year-old wide. The average team goes through eight tires in a year.

entertainment | Weekend Pass The ‘No Other’ Big Band Beach House members Alex Scally and Victoria Legrand assembled a 15-piece ensemble (including themselves) for the “No Other” shows, a supergroup made up of members of Fleet Foxes, The Walkmen, Grizzly Bear, Fairport Convention, Lower Dens and more. Scally says he cold-emailed 30 potential singers to play Gene Clark’s role, ultimately settling on four men (see below) who trade off on lead vocals. (Legrand, Wye Oak singer Jenn Wasner and Celebration’s Tony Drummond will sing backup.) “The first two people we thought of voice-wise were Daniel [Rossen, of Grizzly Bear] and Robin [Pecknold, of Fleet Foxes] and we’re so grateful they wanted to do it,” Scally says. “So that’s how we chose [the singers] — voice type and judging from the artist’s music, if it seemed like they’d like it.” R.G.
Gene Clark’s 1974 album “No Other” has inspired a tribute tour.
Like ‘No Other’ Beach House recruits a big band to recreate a lost Gene Clark album Music Beach House guitarist Alex Scally can’t recall the first time he heard Gene Clark’s 1974 album “No Other.” “I just remember listening to it a lot of times,” Scally says. He knows the initial spin was in 2004 or 2005, and that he was with bandmate Victoria Legrand, listening to a vinyl copy she inherited from her father. The two played the record so much, it’s all become a blur. “I remember having that feeling: Why isn’t this one of the records that people talk about,” he says. But “I didn’t really think too much about it. I was just so happy to hear it.” Nearly a decade later, the Baltimorebased duo’s adoration for the album has blossomed into The Gene Clark “No Other” Tour, a five-date, note-for-note recreation of the record that stops at 9:30 Club on Friday and features the pair playing alongside members of Fairport Convention, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear,
The Walkmen and Wye Oak. It’s a big to-do for an album that, upon its release, was deemed a critical and commercial failure — a piece of ’70s studio excess with no pop hits. Clark, a founding member of The Byrds who died in 1991, wrote and recorded “No Other” with a sprawling cast of players who largely improvised their parts. The result was an eight-song epic that melded country, folk, jazz, gospel, blues and psychedelic rock, sometimes within the same song (like the funky, trippy title track). For years, it remained unreleased on CD and largely unheralded. “When I mentioned the record to people, even people who loved music, most people just didn’t know it at all,” Scally says. The album wasn’t a direct (or obvi-
— A LE X SCA LLY, OF BEACH HOUSE, ON THE
ous) influence on the dreamy indie-pop that Beach House is known for, but, rather, one Scally and Legrand thought would be a challenge to recreate. “It’s just another record we love,” Scally says. “It’s so overdone and I think we liked the idea of trying to present such a studio feeling live.” Much in the way an actor inhabits a role, Scally says, the big band the pair corralled for the shows (15 members in all; see sidebar) has taken a theatrical approach to the performances. “We’re literally taking on the identities of [the original musicians],” Scally says. “If there’s any interpretation that is heard, it’s due to our ineptitude to perfectly execute it. … Like an actor, we’re trying to role-play.” Scally, who plays bass in the ensemble, hopes the tour leads others to discover the album. “The only goal of this tour is to celebrate great music,” he says. “It’s just to have fun playing music that we find beautiful and hopefully have others really enjoy it in a way they never would have if we hadn’t done this tour. I hope that Gene would respect that or enjoy that, or at least not be annoyed by it.”
OBSCURITY OF GENE CLARK’S “NO OTHER”
RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)
“When I mentioned the record to people, even people who loved music, most people just didn’t know it at all.”
Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally Baltimore duo Beach House is the driving (and organizing) force behind the “No Other” tour, with Scally handling bass duties and Legrand singing as part of a vocal chorus. Iain Matthews The solo artist and former member of eclectic British folk group Fairport Convention is the only singer on the tour who was an actual contemporary of Clark’s. Robin Pecknold The lead singer of Seattle’s Fleet Foxes is one of the more obvious choices to play Clark; Fleet Foxes’ psych-influenced folk rock might not have existed without him. Daniel Rossen The Grizzly Bear guitarist sings almost half of that band’s songs. His gravelly voice seems well-suited to replicate the desperation often heard in Clark’s vocals. Hamilton Leithauser Given his distinctive snarl, the lead singer of The Walkmen might seem an odd choice to recreate Clark’s words. Not so, Scally says: “I think he can be a real croonster.”

Weekend Pass | entertainment WHO THE HECK IS ...
Don’t call Katie Crutchfield a millennial. The Alabamabred alt-folk prodigy behind Waxahatchee just turned 25, but her sound borrows more from Cat Power’s perennial melancholy than Lena Dunham’s ironic smirk. Heartwrenching and simple, Crutchfield’s chord-driven confessionals are as earnest as a whispered conversation between close friends — and she’s been cranking them out for more than a decade.
Kid Rock As teenage fans of riot grrrl and grunge bands, Crutchfield and her twin sister, Allison, took up instruments (keys and drums for Allison; guitar for Katie) and started a pop-punk quartet, The Ackleys. The sisters spent their high school summers touring the basements and warehouses of the Southeast’s DIY-show circuit. “My parents must have been out of their f------ minds,” Crutchfield says. “But I think it taught us a lot about independence and responsibility.”
Growing Up The Crutchfield sisters found a broader audience in the late 2000s with another pop-punk group, P.S. Eliot. As the band’s lead singer and songwriter, Katie’s voice matured in sound, with a much wider range, and on paper, with lyrics that transcended The Ackleys’ high school angst. “Maybe I’m right,
maybe fidelity is obsolete/ Maybe we confuse love for remission/ Or complacency for defeat,” she sang on “Acid Flashbacks.”
On Her Own “I see myself as being really difficult to work with,” Crutchfield says, of P.S. Eliot’s amicable dissolution in 2011. “I thought, ‘I want to do this myself so … I can make it sound how I want it to sound without hurting anyone’s feelings.’ ” Snowed in, alone, at her family’s lake house near Birmingham, Ala., she spent a week writing and recording her first solo album as Waxahatchee, the name of a nearby creek. “American Weekend,” released in 2012, is a lo-fi, acoustic tally of broken hearts. The crackle of the eighttrack tape and the snap of Crutchfield’s guitar pick give her songs the warm, scratchy folds of an old woolen blanket.
‘Cerulean Salt’ Overwhelmed by the success of the critically acclaimed “American Weekend,” Crutchfield wanted to take a break from spontaneous solo recording and think more intentionally about creating a lasting sound. She decided to try working with a band again — this time, with veto power. For “Cerulean Salt,” which dropped last spring, she recruited her boyfriend, Keith Spencer; her twin, Allison; and Kyle Gilbride, all of Philadelphia-based rock band Swearin’, to play backing instruments with one disclaimer: “Everyone’s creatively involved, but it’s my thing.” While the added drums and bass give “Cerulean Salt” a backbone that makes for catchier choruses, Crutchfield’s honest, vivid storytelling is still the star. “There isn’t a whole lot of music being made right now that’s going to hold up for years and years,” she says. “I want to make something that’s not totally drenched in reverb, overly stylized. Songs that stand on their own.” CHRISTINA CAUTERUCCI (FOR EXPRESS)

HAVES WHILE SIPPING YOUR COFFEE
Back when people were toting flip phones and bumping *NSYNC on their Walkmans, the lure of free Wi-Fi at a cafe was revolutionary enough to get customers in the door. Nowadays, the coffeehouse landscape is flooded with specialty shops where Internet service not only comes standard, but is also served alongside high-quality beans from craft roasters. How can a cafe stand out from the pack? “Getting coffee is something most people do every day, and if you can improve the experience it can make a big impact,” says Ryan Fleming, who (with his fiancee) is in the process of opening a coffee and cocktail bar in Logan Circle called Slipstream, projected to debut in April. Like Fleming’s hybrid concept, other local shops are experimenting with the classic coffeehouse model — by serving restaurant-quality food, offering booze and setting up retail shops within — to keep things fresh. Most people know Bloomingdale’s Big Bear Cafe as the inimitable neighborhood haunt where hipsters pour French-pressed Counter Culture beans from El Salvador and beyond. But Monday through Saturday after 6 p.m., the casual spot transforms into a full-service restaurant. Executive chef Rebecca Hassell describes her fare as “healthy comfort food,” so you’ll see dishes like celery root soup ($6) and seared swordfish with rosemary polenta ($18). And Kafe Bohem is bringing both Austria-based Julius Meinl coffee and Czech food to Shaw. The cafe serves traditional Eastern European items like borscht ($9) as well as dishes with a Czech twist like chicken and waffles made with schnitzel ($14). Flying Fish opened in Mount Pleasant in May 2011 with Counter Culture coffee and tea from Art of

Percolating … Urban Butcher (8226 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring; 301-585-5800, urbanbutcher.com) serves housemade charcuterie and meat-heavy meals. The new restaurant plans to operate a 30-seat coffee bar that will be open during the day. Rasheed Jabr, owner of Filter coffeehouses, told Eater DC he’s considering opening a coffee/bike shop in Brookland with the Bike Rack.
Tea. Recently, the tiny cafe began offering a small collection of craft beer and wine that rotates seasonally. “We saw a drop-off of business around 5 p.m., and we were looking for a way to boost sales in the later hours,” Mike Visser says of his decision to offer something a little harder. Meanwhile, Chinatown Coffee Co. serves three varieties of absinthe alongside directtrade coffee from Intelligentsia and
beans from Portland-based Heart Coffee Roasters. “Most people don’t come in on their lunch break to drink absinthe, which is probably a good thing” owner Max Brown says. “But on Thursdays and Fridays at happy hour, you can smell the rich scent [of absinthe] when you walk in the shop.” Sankofa, a coffee shop by Howard University, wears a lot of hats: In addition to serving mostly Ethi-
to better educate folks that come to our establishment, and to let them know that these [filmmakers and authors] were out there,” proprietor Tensae Berhanu says. Pleasant Pops in Adams Morgan shares a similar community-oriented vision. “We view ourselves as serving the neighborhood,” says co-owner Brian Sykora, who stocks shelves with artisanal foodstuffs from mostly local producers. “We saw a need for a good coffee shop and a small grocery store, so we combined the two.” HOLLEY SIMMONS (EXPRESS) WITH REPORTING BY ALISON BAITZ

Late last year, Meek-Bradley announced plans to open Roofers Union in Adams Morgan. For those who can’t wait for the opening later this month, Meek-Bradley is hosting a Roofers Union pop-up at Ripple (3417 Connecticut Ave. NW; 202-2447995, rippledc.com) on Thursday.

Among the marvels for the chef de cuisine at Alba Osteria is the openess of her audience in Mount Vernon Triangle. “Nobody blinks an eye” at the tripe soup or veal tongue on the Piedmont-inspired menu, says Amy Brandwein, formerly of the shuttered Casa Nonna. The chef is temporarily reuniting at Alba with Roberto Donna, with whom she last cooked six years ago at the late Galileo downtown. “Some of the food I’ve done before,” she says of her new gig, and some of it is more modern. The crowd-pleasers in her new roost include tiny meatballs brightened with mint and draped with a sauce of red peppers, tomato and vinegar rather than a straight tomato sauce. Poached, marinated rabbit is served as a fetching salad sparked with capers and shaved red onion. The tripe soup, packed with beans and vegetables and faintly funky, makes a perfect foil to winter weather. Lunch brings panini, including
one featuring pork shoulder, broccoli rabe and a vivid salsa verde cradled in a house-baked wrap. There are skinny breadsticks to start, tender spinach gnocchi that follow and desserts that sidestep the usual Italian standbys. A lot of the food shows up in small cast-iron casseroles. “They don’t break as much as other things,” Brandwein says, plus “they keep food hot.” The containers also echo the metal work throughout the restaurant. Polenta sweetened with white chocolate and bruleed to a light crackle looks especially appealing in its dark pan. Hakan Ilhan, who also owns Al Dente near American Univer-
FIRST BI T E
sity, where Donna is expected to return, says he spent $1.6 million on the 5,500-square-foot restaurant, welcoming with splashes of orange and designed to accommodate as many as three private parties. To further entice young neighbors, the osteria puts its lively bar in the center of the action. “We got it right on this one,” humble-brags Ilhan. I concur, with a few exceptions. The crust on the pizza could be crisper; and spare us the waiter’s line about how the “flowing” kitchen sends out dishes as they’re ready, “although we can force a dish if you want it sooner.” Surely I’m not the only diner weary of eating at the convenience of the kitchen rather than when it suits me. Ilhan says he has registered a name for yet another Italian eatery, which he hopes to open in Merrifield. Lest anyone think he’s going the chain route, Ilhan promises that Asti Trattoria will have its own identity, right down to a separate chef. For now, at A lba, he says, “it’s going to be Amy’s show.” TOM SIETSEMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

tures highlight two flourishing ages, the late Six Dynasties and the High Tang (sixth to eighth century).

Tiger’s mind is still on the majors as he opens the ’14 season
Tiger Woods was posing for pictures with a trophy Wednesday at Torrey Pines, and the tournament had not even started. He has made winning look routine, particularly on this San Diego public course where he already has won eight times as a pro, including a U.S. Open. The trophy Woods received on the eve of his title defense at the Farmers Insurance Open was for being voted PGA Tour player of the year for the 11th time. In his 19th year as a pro, Woods conceded there are things he can’t do at 38 that he could when he was 24, such as produce the same speed when he rotates through the ball.
DONALD MIRALLE (GETTY IMAGES)
Tiger Woods will open the season at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
But he’s also stronger and a lot smarter in dissecting a golf course. “You’re still able to be successful, but you do it a different way,” Woods said. “You evolve as you age, and I think I’ve done that so far.” The talk about Woods hasn’t
changed, either. Even with the Masters just under three months away, any mention of Woods starts with the majors. The playoff win at Torrey Pines in the 2008 U.S. Open was the last
major he won. He has been stuck on 14 for the past ﬁve years, squandering good chances at the U.S. Open in 2012 and the British Open last year. This would seem to shape up as an important year because three of the majors are on courses where he has won — Augusta National, Royal Liverpool and Valhalla. The U.S. Open is at Pinehurst No. 2, where Woods has ﬁnished third and second. “I view it as every year is a big year,” Woods said. “Looking back from the beginning of my career to now, I know that I don’t have 20 years in my prime. I don’t see being 58 and being in my prime. Most guys don’t dunk from the foul line at age 58, so it’s a little different. But the outlook is still the same. “I still prepare the same,” he said. “I still work my tail off to be ready to compete at this level and beat everyone that I’m playing against.” DOUG FERGUSON (AP)
Another Nadal-Federer Matchup Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer won back-to-back matches on center court Wednesday to set up their 33rd showdown. Federer wore down Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, while Nadal prevailed after losing the opening set to ﬁrst-time quarterﬁnalist Grigor Dimitrov. Their Australian Open semiﬁnal matchup isn’t until Friday, which gives Nadal time to heal a painful blister on the palm of his left hand. Nadal missed the 2013 Australian Open because of injury, but he came back strong. After seven months off, Nadal won 10 titles —

Roger Federer has been beat by Rafael Nadal in 22 of their 32 matches.
including majors at the French and U.S. Opens — and returned to the No. 1 ranking. Meanwhile, Federer is coming off one of his worst years, failing to
make any of the Grand Slam ﬁnals and dropping to No. 6 in the rankings as he struggled with injuries and came to terms with a new, bigger racket. After recruiting six-time major winner Stefan Edberg as a coach, and adjusting to the new racket, he’s ﬁnally feeling capable of winning a major again. He believes the win over Murray demonstrated that. “I deﬁnitely think that’s what I used to do so well, the transition game from defense to offense,” Federer said. “I deﬁnitely sensed that today. I am back.” Stan Wawrinka was scheduled to face Tomas Berdych in the other semiﬁnal this morning. JOHN PYE (AP)
White Out Again Shaun White is out again for the Winter X Games. The snowboarder originally said he was out, then changed his mind and entered. Then, on Wednesday, he pulled out again. He says the schedule wouldn’t allow him to train the way he wants to for next month’s Olympics. (AP)
Dress Rehearsal: The NFL and personnel at MetLife Stadium decided to use a winter storm that
dumped a foot or more of snow in the New York City metropolitan area Tuesday as somewhat of a dress rehearsal to see how quickly they could clean the 80,000-seat facility that will hold the first outdoor Super Bowl in cold weather in less than two weeks. NFL executive vice president Eric Grubman said Wednesday an 18-hour time limit was set for removing the snow from the stadium, surrounding parking lots and access roads. (AP)

New Year, Same Goals for Woods Closer Grant Balfour saved 38 games for the Oakland A’s last season.
Nats Show Interest In Balfour? Nationals Late in the winter the past two seasons, when it appeared their roster was already set, the Nationals made one final significant, surprising addition. In February 2012, they added Edwin Jackson to a full rotation. Last January, the Nationals dropped Rafael Soriano into the stuffed back of their bullpen. Even if the Nationals knocked out most of their work early in this offseason, could they have one more move — or a series of moves — left? Over the weekend, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reported that the Nationals have shown interest in free agent reliever Grant Balfour, the ﬁery, 36-year-old Australian who saved 38 games for Oakland last season. Though on the surface the Nationals’ bullpen seems to be well-stocked, with Soriano still under contract through 2014 after he saved 43 games last year, the potential interest in Balfour makes sense on several levels. Speaking on MLB Network on Tuesday morning, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo certainly did not refute Rosenthal’s report. “At this time of year, we’re looking at any way to improve our ballclub,” Rizzo said. “We feel our bullpen is extremely strong. It’s a big part of our ballclub. But if we could strengthen a strength, that never hurts, either.” ADAM KILGORE ( THE WASHINGTON POST )

A Soulful Kind of Sound
Thanks, TLC, for stimulating the winter TVscape with “Sex Sent Me to the ER,” a show about people who went to the ER on account of having sex. (The series ended Jan. 18 but repeats on Saturdays at 10 p.m.) Like all highminded reality shows, “Sex” is hilariously entertaining for viewers who enjoy laughing at the misfortunes of others and also By Marc teaches vital life lesSilver sons, to wit: Take it easy, guys, especially if you weigh more than 400 pounds. You could accidentally push your lover’s head through the wall. Take it easy, ladies. Extremely aggressive coupling could bend a penis backward and fracture it. (This rare but real problem is described by Reviews in Urology as “the traumatic rupture of the tunica albuginea.”) Extremely intense sexual activity can affect the nerves going to your ears and produce temporary deafness. Add extreme heat and you could pass out. If your lover says, “That could be a great tree to have sex in,” for the love of Mother Nature, say no. Limbs can snap. Also: splinters! After watching this show, I will say: Just call me Mr. Celibate. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Gregory Porter’s unique music may win in two genres at Sunday’s Grammy’s
Gregory Porter left a promising theater career to pursue jazz and blues singing.
Music Gregory Porter’s music doesn’t fit neatly into any one category, but that hasn’t stopped the soul-jazz singer from picking up Grammy nominations for his first three albums. Porter didn’t record his first album as a leader until age 39. His 2010 debut, “Water,” was nominated for best jazz vocal album. His original ballad “Real Good Hands,” off his 2012 album “Be Good,” got a nod for best traditional R&B performance. And his new album, “Liquid Spirit,” has garnered nominations for both jazz vocal album and traditional R&B performance for the soulful ballad “Hey Laura,” about a man Porter says “really hasn’t quite ﬁgured out that the relationship is over.” “They accidentally got it right,” Porter said, laughing about the nominations. “I’m not strategically trying to be in between soul, jazz and gospel. … The people that I’ve been moved by are singers who have a soulful expression no matter what the genre — Nat King Cole, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Leon Thomas and Andy Bey,” a fellow jazz vocal album Grammy nominee. Porter cuts a distinctive ﬁgure on stage with his trademark “jazz hat,” a black Kangol hat and balaclava, and his imposing 6-foot-4,
“I’m trying to sing something that’s elevating … and hopefully the people listening will be moved in a similar way.” 255-pound build. His performances also are distinctive because, unlike other chart-topping male jazz singers, he doesn’t rely on Great American Songbook standards but mostly performs his own songs inspired by personal experiences. “Liquid Spirit,” his Blue Note label debut, includes original songs about the bright and dark sides of romance, from the upbeat “Wind Song” to the heartache-f illed “Water Under Bridges.” As on his other albums, Porter offers sociopolitical commentary with the song “Musical Genocide,” which protests the suppression of authentic
blues, soul and gospel music by an industry that forces artists to perform a more homogenized, commercial style. A Bakersfield, Calif., native, Porter was encouraged to sing in churches by his mother, a minister who introduced him to her Nat King Cole record collection. Porter imagined Cole as a surrogate for his absent father, a theme he later explored in a musical play he titled “Nat King Cole and Me.” He entered San Diego State University on a football scholarship, pursuing a degree in city planning. A severe shoulder injury
sidelined him during his freshman year at the same time his mother was dying of cancer. He turned to music for solace, joining a campus musical theater group and singing at local jam sessions. While auditing a jazz class at the University of California, San Diego, he found a mentor in faculty member Kamau Kenyatta, who was impressed by his polished sound and encouraged him to pursue a musical career. Kenyatta invited Porter to a Los Angeles studio to watch Hubert Laws record his 1998 Nat King Cole tribute, and the ﬂutist unexpectedly invited him to sing the Charlie Chaplin tune “Smile” on the album. A chance encounter with Laws’ sister, Eloise, who was performing in the Broadwaybound revue “It Ain’t Nothing But the Blues,” led to a role in the cast. Around 2005, Porter decided to switch his focus from theater to singing. Porter considers himself a jazz singer, but is inspired by the 1970s soul music “that always seemed to be uplifting in a way … like we can go higher, better.” The funky song “Free” on his new album is in that vein — a tale of a working-class black family with the parents struggling to build a better life for their children. “My mother was constantly fighting for us to stand up straight in a room where the ceiling was constantly coming down on us,” Porter said. “I’m trying to sing something that’s elevating … and hopefully the people listening will be moved in a similar way.” CHARLES J. GANS (AP)
Break Out the Sweaters: NBC has made a deal with Bill Cosby, left, for a half-hour family comedy starring the 76-year-old comedian. Deadline reported Wednesday that Cosby will play the head of a large family and the show will be scripted around his opinions on relationships and parenting. This new project comes 22 years after the end of Cosby’s previous NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” which was one of the biggest TV hits of the 1980s. (E XPRESS)

Sir Ian Goes To Washington The ‘Lord of the Rings’ star partners with Olney Theatre
Set A Higher Goal For Your
If you can’t get the voice of God, get the voice of Gandalf. Olney Theatre Center announced Tuesday that Sir Ian McKellen has recorded voice-overs for its upcoming production of the musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” which begins previews Jan. 29. “I’ve always had a soft spot for Olney, and it’s lovely to be able to make another contact,” McKellen said. “How to Succeed,” which debuted on Broadway in 1961, tells the story of an ambitious New York window washer who becomes chairman of the board at a ﬁctional enterprise known as the World Wide Wicket Company. In the most recent revival, Daniel Radcliffe played J. Pierrepont Finch, while CNN newsman Anderson Cooper provided the voice of the titular self-help book. “It’s a musical I’ve never seen, although I’m about to be in it,” McKellen said. “This is my debut in musical comedy.” That’s a bit hard to believe, but possible given the actor’s long career doing ﬁlms and plays. In 1987, he embarked on an eight-city U.S. tour with his one-man show, “Acting Shakespeare.” Olney, Md., was a six-

week summer stop, and McKellen recalls it being hot in Washington, with tensions running high thanks to the ongoing Iran-Contra hearings. McKellen noticed that the theater’s interns were not living in the best of conditions. “There were not-ver y-nice accommodations up in the attics,” he recalled. “We thought, if we sell some T-shirts after the show, and I were to sign them, we might make enough money to put a bit of air conditioning into the buildings. People bought them by the hundreds.” The one-man marketing effort raised almost $7,000, enough money not only for box air conditioners but to repaint and re-carpet the backstage areas and dressing rooms. “Looking at the shows they are putting on, it seems the theater is thriving,” McKellen said.

“The person that gets entirely too excited about the upcoming snow day and starts trying to line up plans days in advance of the storm.”

“Bacon Apartment” to the Western world. Photos of an apartment balcony that show rows of pork belly air-curing along its numerous burglar bars recently went viral in Asia.

“But, hearing that song again, I was annoyed, and couldn’t help but think, really!?! This was the best you could do?” — KRISTINA MONLLOS AT THEAWL.COM critiques the use of The Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love” in the romcom “About Time.” Monllos, a selfproclaimed lover of the cheesy ﬁlm genre, uses that example to illustrate a larger problem — that “Friday I’m in Love,” as well as other songs from The Cure, are overused in ﬁlm. And she goes deep on it: “According to IMDb, one or more of The Cure’s songs has been featured in 19 ﬁlms in the genre, of their 84 soundtrack credits — all since 1997, which was the band’s 21st year.” There are Venn diagrams involved.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) What you want may not be available to you just yet, so you’ll have to employ not only patience, but also some imaginative substitution! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You are likely to be welcomed back into the fold — provided, of course, it is something that you truly want. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You may be under the mistaken notion that you are being pulled away from that which is most important to you. Think again. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You had best reach an accord with a rival, even if it is temporary. Working together in this way leads to something positive. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You and a competitor may be following different sets of rules. See if you can’t come to some sort of agreement about protocol.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) What you do for someone else is likely to take more out of you than you have anticipated. You’ll need more time to recover. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may be startled by someone’s actions, which do not fit in with your own notion of propriety. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your point of view may bring you into conflict with someone who maintains an entirely different perspective — and for good reason.
