Deep South Coated in Ice, Snow
Nearly half a million without power as storm heads north
Comedian Sid Caesar Dies
The second wintry storm in two weeks to hit the Deep South encrusted highways, trees and power lines in ice Wednesday, knocking out electricity to nearly a half-million homes and businesses. At least nine trafﬁc deaths were blamed on the weather, and more than 3,300 airline ﬂights nationwide were canceled. As residents across the South heeded forecasters’ unusually dire warnings and hunkered down at home against the onslaught of snow and freezing rain, the storm pushed northward along the Interstate 95 corridor, threatening to bring more than a foot of snow today to the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Forecasters warned of a potentially “catastrophic” storm across the South with more than an inch of ice possible in places. As the day wore on, power outages climbed and the nasty weather came in waves. (AP)

At least 3 to 6 inches of snow were expected to fall overnight in the Washington area. By this morning, forecasters expect the snow to turn to sleet and freezing rain, then later, revert back to snow to the north and west of the District. When all is said and done, the immediate area is likely to see 5 to 10 inches — higher to the west and not as much to the east. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Debt-Limit Bill OK’d, But Not Without Fuss Washington
“Her personality is she loves to kiss people and she connects with everybody.”
After a dramatic Senate tally in which top GOP leaders cast the crucial votes, must-pass legislation to allow the government to borrow money to pay its bills cleared Congress on Wednesday for President Barack Obama’s signature. The Senate approved the measure by a near party-line 55-43 vote. But the vote to pass the measure was anticlimactic after a dramatic 67-31 tally — held open for
more than an hour — in which the measure cleared a ﬁlibuster hurdle insisted on by tea party Republican Ted Cruz of Texas. The Senate’s top two Republicans — both facing tea party challenges in their primaries this year — provided crucial momentum to move the bill along. After Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Minority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, voted “aye,” several other Republicans switched their votes. Twelve Republicans ultimately voted
to help the measure advance. “A lot of people stepped up and did what they needed to do,” said Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn. Cr u z’s dema nds i r r it ated Republicans because it forced several of them, particularly McConnell, to cast a difﬁcult vote. “In my view, every Republican should stand together against raising the debt ceiling without meaningful structural reforms to rein in our out-of-control spending,” Cruz said.

West Branch. Behind the station, there was a stack of recycling bins — and a plastic tote bin. He opened the lid and saw a blanket inside. This was not a load of recycling. It looked as if he had found the baby, but far too late. The container had been out there all night. Horihan carefully opened the lid. Then he heard something. “It was just a — just a — more than a whimper,” he said. He looked around to see if an animal had made a noise nearby. “Am I wanting to ﬁnd the baby so bad that I’m hearing things?” Then he heard it again. Horihan looked under the blanket. “I got a baby crying here! Baby crying here!” Horihan yelled out to his partner. “I found the baby!” Kayden was alert. The aunt, Kristen R.

‘I Was Weeping While I Was Walking’ Weeping children begged for food in the streets and women picked grass growing in the cracks of the sidewalks to eat as hunger gripped residents of rebel-held neighborhoods of the Syrian city of Homs blockaded for nearly two years by the military, according to a rare ﬁrst-hand account by a man evacuated during a truce this week. It was ultimately that hunger that caused Abu Jalal Tilawi to

sanctions to punish Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government for the blockades. “We are facing the worst humanitarian tragedy since the genocide in Rwanda in 1994,” France’s U.N. Ambassador Gerard Araud said Tuesday. “Starvation is used as a weapon by the regime.” But Tilawi has little faith his trials are over. Al-Waar, where he took refuge, has also been under blockade for the past four months. “We left a blockade, and have come to another one,” Tilawi said. “But here, they are still at the beginning, they have food.

Most of the sieges are by government forces, aiming to wear down resistance, but rebels have also adopted the tactic in some areas.

Britain Plagued By Wet Weather Record-breaking rains have caused massive flooding London Soggy Britain is being soaked again. The River Thames has burst its banks, rail lines have been washed away, villages have been turned into islands and soldiers are out on the front lines ﬁlling sandbags. As residents battled to save their homes, yet another storm hit the U.K. on Wednesday, pummeling the west coast with torrential rain and wind gusts up to 106 mph. Here’s a look at the nation’s exceptionally wet and wild weather. What caused the ﬂoods?
Rain, rain and more rain. England has had its wettest January since records began almost 250 years ago.

How bad is it?
About 5,800 properties have ﬂooded since December along England’s southwest coast, the low-lying Somerset Levels and the Thames Valley west of London. On the Levels, some villages are accessible only by boat or emergency vehicles. Is London threatened?
The river is not expected to burst its banks in the city center. The part of the Thames that runs through London toward the sea is protected by the Thames Barrier, a series of 66-foot-high metal gates across the entire river that can be closed to stop the tide from coming up. When will it all end?
It’s not clear yet. The Met Ofﬁce says at least one more storm is due this week. The Environment Agency has warned some communities to expect more ﬂooding. In the long run, some areas may have to be abandoned to the water. JILL L AWLESS (AP)

Marion Barry Is Hospitalized Once Again LINDA DAVIDSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)
D.C. Council member is ‘coming along,’ spokeswoman says Washington Marion Barry has been admitted to a hospital for a second time this year, raising concerns among friends and colleagues about the four-term former D.C. mayor’s seemingly precarious health. A spokeswoman for Barry, LaToya Foster, said the D.C. Council member was admitted Monday to Washington Hospital Center and spent time in the intensive care unit there. He is now resting in a regular bed, she said Wednesday. “Mayor Barry is doing much better than the public is speculating right now,” Foster said. “Clear-

District Building, to prostate cancer diagnosed in the mid-1990s, to a 2009 kidney transplant. The present hospitalization came two weeks after Barry was discharged following a 16-day stay at Howard University Hospital for what was described as a blood infection. News of Barry’s readmittance raced across Twitter on Tuesday night, hours after it was announced at a candidates forum that Mayor Vincent Gray would not attend
because he was visiting a friend in “grave” condition. Barry’s account issued a string of tweets Tuesday night seeking to ease concerns about his condition: “I was not rushed to the hospital. I am not seriously ill. I have a urinary tract infection. I will be back,” one message read. At a news conference Wednesday morning, Gray conﬁrmed that he had visited Barry, spending ﬁve hours talking politics at his bedside. Gray said he had no knowledge
of Barry’s specific condition or prognosis. But he said Barry was conscious and alert during the visit. A person close to Barry with ﬁrst-hand knowledge of his medical situation said Barry “will be ﬁne in due course.” Doctors were concerned his infection “wasn’t resolving itself quite as well as they thought it would,” said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter. Barry’s medication has been adjusted, the person added, but there is no indication yet of when he might be discharged and when he might return to work. While aides and colleagues say he has continued to conduct business while ill, he has not attended a council meeting since last fall. MIKE DeBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Alleged Metro Cellphone Flasher Arrested D.C. man is accused of showing riders lewd photographs Washington Metro Transit Police arrested a 22-year-old District man they’ve deemed a “cellphone flasher” after he allegedly showed Red Line riders inappropriate pictures of himself. Steven Andrew Slaughter is charged for lewd acts and for an assault that occurred in January along the Red Line. Police said between Jan. 14-23, Slaughter allegedly approached several female Red Line riders as they waited for trains and showed them
“a lewd photograph of himself on his cellphone screen.” In some instances, Slaughter approached victims and claimed he was soliciting donations for a charitable youth group, police said. One of the inciSlaughter dents occurred at Union Station and another at Metro Center. Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said transit police were able to catch Slaughter after connecting witness statements and pulling footage from the high deﬁnition cameras in the rail system. Police then linked Slaughter to two cases

in 2013 that also involved inappropriate behavior on Metro. In 2013, Slaughter was arrested and charged for masturbating on a Red Line train. He also faced a second charge of simple assault that same year for allegedly lifting a woman’s skirt at the Woodley Park station. Slaughter pleaded guilty to
“First we stole Rusty away to Virginia, now we get our own celebrity snowy owl. #VirginaIs ForAnimalLovers”
those charges on Jan. 4 and was sentenced to one year of supervised probation. A D.C. judge ordered Slaughter to stay off Metro, “except for travel to court or case-related activity,” according to Metro Transit Police. As part of his plea deal, Metro ofﬁcials said, prosecutors agreed to not charge Slaughter in another incident from July 2013, where he allegedly sat in front of a female passenger on a Metrobus and masturbated. In the latest case, Slaughter faces two counts of contempt of court because the alleged incidents took place while the “stay away” order was in effect, Metro officials said.

During the first three seasons of John Wall’s career with the Wizards, he was often hamstrung by injuries, his own limitations and the team around him. It’s not that Wall failed to live up to the lofty expectations that came with being the No. 1 overall pick in 2010, but there was a tinge of disappointment that the guard hadn’t fully realized his potential.

Adding to the pressure was the ﬁve-year, $80 million deal he signed before the start of the 2013-14 campaign, his fourth with the team. From the opening tip of the season, Wall has been on a mission to prove his critics wrong and show that he is playing on a higher level than before. On Sunday, the 23-year-old will be an East reserve for the NBA All-Star game in New Orleans — making him the ﬁrst Wizards All-Star since 2008. “It’s a big honor, a humbling experience,” Wall said. “It lets you know all the hard times I’ve been through are paying off.” Wall has always been an explosive open-court player, with the ability to blow past defenders and get to the rim. But this year, he has harnessed his speed, letting the game slow down in order to make the extra pass and smarter play. “It’s a hard process,” Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. “People don’t understand the point guard position in the NBA — what you have to learn and what’s all entailed in it. When you’re a young kid that played one year of college and you’re thrust into a situation

John Wall is the first Wizards player to make the All-Star team since 2008. He leads the team in points, assists and steals this year.
like he was as being No. 1 pick, a lot was thrown at him at an early time. “Sometimes, people could falter under that kind of pressure. But he accepted it and continued to grow and has made great strides not only in his individual game, but as a leader and as a point guard.” Wall recognizes that letting the game come to him, especially with talented shooters like Bradley Beal and Martell Webster on the court, can pay dividends. It’s a big reason he’s averaging a career-high 8.4 assists per game this season. “You feel pressure,” Wall said. “I think the whole team did and I think that’s why we all tried to do it on our own at times. Sometimes that hurt us. We know we’re a team that’s got to play as a team, move the ball, play team defense — and that’s when we’re at our best.” The Wizards were at their worst last season when Wall missed the ﬁrst 33 games with a knee injury.

This year, he has played in every contest, providing a stability this still-developing squad desperately needs as it attempts to get over the .500 hump and into the playoffs. Wall’s progress has been noticed by other coaches, too, including the San Antonio Spurs’ Gregg Popovich. “He’s turned into a leader on the ﬂoor, he understands situations on the court, he presses his teammates, he’s aggressive and takes on the responsibility to score and to ﬁnd somebody for a good oppor-

tunity,” Popovich said. “This year is a huge jump for him I think.” Wall’s biggest weakness has always been his long-range shooting. In the 2011-12 season, he was 3-for-42 from 3-point range for the entire year. Having rebuilt his shot in the offseason, Wall’s now a 32 percent 3-point shooter. “I’m happy for that kid,” Webster said. “He worked hard. It’s a testament to his hard work that he’s put in. And I’m pretty sure, knowing his work ethic, that he’s solidiﬁed [as an All-Star] for a while.” When Wall takes the court in New Orleans, this high point of his career won’t merely be a success story for him alone. “It’s a great opportunity,” he said. “It was one of the goals I set for myself, so it was a big accomplishment for me, my coaching staff and the city of D.C. with the tough times we’ve been through. It’ll be big.”
Point guard John Wall is not only headed to New Orleans to represent the Wizards in his first All-Star game, but he will also be in the Slam Dunk Contest. He’ll be joined by fellow All-Stars Paul George (Pacers) and Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers), reigning Slam Dunk champion Terrence Ross (Raptors), and Harrison Barnes (Warriors) and Ben McLemore (Kings). The Wizards will be well represented in Saturday’s All-Star festivities (8 p.m., TNT), with Bradley Beal, above, to participate in the Three-Point Shootout.

U.S. women step up after U.S. men failed to medal in halfpipe Kaitlyn Farrington restored a little bit of luster to Team USA’s Winter Olympics on Wednesday, taking back U.S. supremacy on the halfpipe that Shaun White and friends lost the night before. Farrington edged defending champion Torah Bright of Australia and American teammate Kelly Clark to win gold in the ﬁnal at an almost tropical Rosa Khutor Extreme Park. Farrington posted a score of 91.75 during her second run, just good enough to beat Bright’s 91.50. Clark, who smacked the wall during her ﬁrst run of the ﬁnals, recovered to earn bronze and win her third Olympic medal. “I fought to get in ﬁnals,” Farrington said. “I did all three rounds. To come out on top, I couldn’t believe it.” Farrington, who grew up in Idaho and now lives in Salt Lake

U.S. snowboarder Kaitlyn Farrington won gold in halfpipe with a score of 91.75.
City, had spent most of the run-up to the games playing second-ﬁddle to Clark, the 2002 Olympic champion. The 24-year-old had to navigate the semiﬁnals to reach the medal round before responding brilliant-
ly to edge two of the sport’s greats. On a halfpipe looking more like a bowl of mashed potatoes than the icy track necessary to put on a topnotch show, Farrington survived. She was second behind teammate
Hannah Teter after the ﬁrst round of ﬁnals, then put together her ﬁnest work of the day to top the leaderboard. Farrington connected a backward 720-degree spin with a backward 900-degree spin, one of the most technically demanding sequences of the night. There were hugs all around when she ﬁnished and her score ﬂashed, though she was forced to watch two of the sport’s best riders take one ﬁnal run to try to win their second Olympic gold. Bright, who has rarely competed the halfpipe since winning gold in Vancouver to focus on other events, put together a more athletic run but also bobbled ever so slightly during one transition between jumps. The 27-year-old — who competed in women’s slopestyle snowboarding over the weekend and will race in snowboardcross on Sunday — danced while she waited for her score and hardly seemed bothered when it came up just a quarterpoint short of Farrington. “It doesn’t really matter the color of the medal,” Bright said. “We’re here, united, we’re shredding babes.” WILL GR AVES (AP)

The U.S. men and women’s curling teams were a combined 0-5 after two days’ play, but John Shuster’s men’s team ended the streak by beating Denmark 9-5. “Getting a win was huge both for our team and for the state of curling as far as our country goes,” Shuster said. (AP)

Davis Falters In Attempt at Three-Peat Speedskating Shani Davis flipped back his hood, put his hands on his knees, and coasted around the practice lane at Adler Arena, staring straight down at the ice. There would be no third gold medal in the 1,000 meters. No medal of any color. It was a stunning defeat for one of the greatest speedskaters ever. “I have to live with this the rest of my life,” Davis said. His shot at Olympic history ended Wednesday when Stefan Groothuis won gold for the Netherlands in the 1,000, dashing the American’s hopes of becoming the ﬁrst male speedskater to capture the same event at three consecutive Olympics. After Davis completed the ﬁrst full lap of the 2½-lap race, it was clear his reign was over. He crossed the line more than seven-tenths of a second behind Groothuis’ winning time of 1 minute, 8.39 seconds. “I just had a misfortunate race,” said Davis, who wound up eighth and gave Groothuis a congratulatory pat on the back after the ﬁnal pair was done. Groothuis said: “This is so unreal. I thought Shani was going to better me.” PAUL NEWBERRY (AP)

Hockey The puck trickled under U.S. goalie Jessie Vetter’s pads and over the goal line, and then the whistle blew. Or was it the other way around? The Canadian women’s hockey team beat the U.S. 3-2 in a preliminary game Wednesday — a tense preview of the expected gold medal match, taking the lead on Hayley Wickenheiser’s controversial thirdperiod goal. Meghan Agosta-Marciano scored in the third period to tie the game 1-1, and then Canada added the go-ahead goal 93 seconds later on a shot that Vetter seemed to have stopped, drawing a whistle from referee Anna Eskola of Finland. But the puck slid through Vet-

ter’s pads and over the goal line. A video — and presumably audio — review conﬁrmed the puck went into the net before the whistle. “You celebrate when you see the puck cross the line,” said Wickenheiser, who is participating in her
fifth Winter Games. “It doesn’t matter how.” But Vetter said she thought the whistle had blown before the puck came loose. American coach Katey Stone was even more sure of it. “I did hear a whistle blow before
the puck went in,” she said. “But, more importantly, I said to our players, ‘Regardless of what happens, let’s be ready.’ ” They weren’t. The Americans allowed AgostaMarciano to break into the zone by herself and beat Vetter with a little more than ﬁve minutes remaining — the second goal of the game for the MVP of the 2010 Olympics — giving Canada a 3-1 lead. The U.S. pulled the goalie and cut the deﬁcit to one on Anne Schleper’s goal with 65 seconds left, but even with a power play that gave them a 6-on4 advantage they couldn’t tie it. It was the Canadians’ third consecutive Olympic victory over the U.S., including the gold medal games in Vancouver and Salt Lake City. But it was their ﬁrst victory over the Americans for coach Kevin Dineen, who took over the team in December. JIMMY GOLEN (AP)

D.C. hip-hop artist Christylez Bacon is a musician with a mission statement. He’s hustled hard, earning a Grammy nomination and a local fan base, but he won’t take a gig unless it furthers his vision for the world — an ideal he calls “cultural acceptance and unification.” Bacon found a perfect match in Woolly Mammoth’s “We Are Proud to Present …,” a dark comedy about a mixed-race group of actors grappling with the legacy of colonialism. At the request of director Michael John Garces, Bacon wrote a score composed almost entirely of
rhythms played by the actors themselves, using only their mouths, bodies and objects from the set. Though he’d never written a theater arrangement before, Bacon was excited to introduce one of D.C.’s finest theaters to body percussion — an art he learned as a kid too poor to buy instruments. The kinds of prejudices that come to light in the play are just what Bacon wants to help mitigate with his music. Bacon, 27, grew up in the Washington Highlands neighborhood of Southeast, where he and his friends banged out go-go beats on buckets and trash cans at impromptu drum circles. Now, he practices “progressive hip-hop,” music that mixes hiphop elements like spoken rhymes and beatboxing with other genres and instruments from around the world. A video of Bacon beatboxing to a classical Indian raga convinced
Garces to make Bacon part of the play’s production team. “I just loved the eclecticness of his aesthetic,” Garces says. “I was really impressed by the breadth of his understanding of local music traditions and hip-hop.” “We Are Proud to Present …” follows six American actors — three black, three white — who are writing a theatrical interpretation of a historic genocide committed by the Germans in one of its African colonies. The rambling full title of the play (“We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South-West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884-1915”) gets at the actors’ discomfort with and distance from the topic. Their writing progress is sporadic, halting often for debates over how to interpret the story. That’s where the music comes in. As they work through the story, the actors sing, stomp and clap, making rhythms that lace together and build toward a coherent song. When they bump up against a disagreement, the improvised beat falls apart, turning a steady groove into disjointed cacophony. Two weeks before opening night, Bacon was still working on the score. He wanted to add a recorded cello track to the cast’s rhythms, but the actors’ timing varied with each run-through. If they were tired, they went slower. If they were feeling energized, they sped up. And no one could predict what would
happen when an audience arrived. To account for variations in the performance, Bacon plans to give the recorded elements of the score to a live sound technician, who’ll turn them on and off when triggered by the stage action. “It’s very much like jazz,” Bacon says. “You’ve got to leave some of the

stuff open for anything to happen.” Though the show isn’t a musical, the bits of song and rhythm that weave through the narrative act as metaphors for the conflict onstage. For Bacon, music has always been about exploring human connection. “Through music, I was able to experience different cultures, and it made me … see how everyone is connected and the same,” he says. “[The play] stirs up a little something for everyone — not just white people, not just black people. Everyone has work to do when it comes to building those relationships.” CHRISTINA CAUTERUCCI (FOR E XPRESS)

Perhaps that’s why Wilco bassist John Stirratt finds he’s at his most creative in the first two days after he comes home to Chicago from touring. “The road writing has gotten

harder and harder,” Stirratt says. “You’re just not in the right mindset, for whatever reason. There’s this release when you come home about writing that, for me, works really well. … There’s a hole when you come home, there’s a certain musical hole, and you try to fill it.” It’s in those brief stretches that Stirratt writes some of the songs for his side project, The Autumn Defense, a ’60s-style power-pop group he and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Sansone formed in 1999. (Sansone joined Wilco full-time in 2004.) The Autumn Defense has
Where’s Wilco? Wilco recently announced it would take this year off from hosting the Solid Sound Music Festival in Massachusetts. That, coupled with singer Jeff Tweedy’s solo dates and The Autumn Defense’s tour, suggests this may be an off-year for the enduring rock band. Shows are possible, but the priority is to get back in the studio to record LP No. 9. Wilco will be in “recording mode later in the year and maybe over the summer,” bassist John Stirratt says. R.G.

That’s the question facing the families in “Like Father, Like Son,” a Japanese film that took the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

released five albums since 2001 — the latest, “Fifth,” came out last month — and tours sporadically, when Wilco’s off the road. (The band headlines Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis on Thursday and The Hamilton in D.C. on Saturday.) But even when Stirratt and Sansone are on tour with Wilco, you won’t necessarily find the pair on the bus or in a hotel room writing songs together. “We probably should take more advantage of that,” Stirratt says. “We have written separately a lot more over the last two records. … We’re on quite different schedules, even when we’re on the road.” “Fifth” was recorded in spurts over the course of three years, he says. Early sessions began in the summer of 2010, with a big bulk of the recording taking place in January 2013. Not that you would be able to tell. While both musicians often write separately, trading off lead vocals, the sound is always cohesive. The synergy can be credited to the pair’s shared influences — Big Star and Badfinger, in particular — the chemistry that comes from playing together in two bands, and the fact that, for the first time, The Autumn Defense’s core live band recorded with Stirratt and Sansone in the studio. “There was a certain sonic consistency with it, which is nice,” Stirratt says. “It got everyone’s musical DNA on most of the tracks.”

4 Jackson Pollock Ed Harris took on the role of one of America’s greatest modern artists in 2000’s “Pollock.” Spoiler: There’s a lot of flinging of paint. And flinging with women.

visual artists, he’d try to reach Andy Warhol, William Hogarth, Diego Velazquez and “a Paleolithic human that painted in caves.” Having spent a few weeks in Warhol’s Factory when he was young, Deller is fascinated by art as storytelling and by artists who “purposefully or inadvertently become associated [with], if not emblematic [of], their moment in history.”
JEREMY DELLER, GAVIN BROWN’S ENTERPRISE
Soaring owls and scrapped autos are just two of the subjects seen in Jeremy Deller’s short film “English Magic.”
Magic: The Gathering Jeremy Deller links scenes of British life for a spellbinding film Exhibits Not oils, not clay — Jeremy Deller’s favorite medium is people. For his well-known 2001 piece “The Battle of Orgreave,” the London-based artist got about 1,000 people together to stage a live re-enactment of a key clash from the 1984-85 U.K. miners’ strike. Although Deller’s works usually center on human collaboration, he also likes to explore people indirectly, through their creations,
cultures and impact on the world at large. An example, Deller’s 2012 film “English Magic,” is on view at the Hirshhorn through the end of August as part of the museum’s Direct ions ser ies. (Deller is scheduled to give a talk there on March 20.) The Great Beyond
Deller is a big fan of D.C.-based musician Ian Svenonius’ recent book, “Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock ’n’ Roll Group,” a tongue-in-cheek history of rock told through a “seance” with important musicians. Deller says that if he were to do his own seance with
“I like magic when it’s done well, illusions especially. Magic can delight and be alluring or it can deceive and trick …” — JEREM Y DELLER, ARTIST BEHIND THE 2012 FILM “ENGLISH MAGIC”
Deller’s 14-minute film is a collage of scenes featuring various subjects, including owls and hawks flying in slow motion, a parade, people playing on a bouncy castle version of Stonehenge, and cars getting crushed at a scrapyard. The soundtrack features Londonbased steel drum band Melodians Steel Orchestra Deller (which appears in the film) performing music by David Bowie, A Guy Called Gerald and Ralph Vaughan Williams. “The music is all from the U.K. and is very English,” Deller says. His favorite scene in the film is the one with the birds (“filmed on the coldest March day since records began — it was almost too cold for the birds to fly”), set to Vaughan Williams’ “Symphony No. 5.” It’s “the most beautiful imagery with the most beautiful, intense music,” Deller says. Use Your Illusion
Deller chose the visual and audio components of “English Magic” for their mysterious and brooding qualities. “I like magic when it’s done well, illusions especially,” Deller says. “Magic can delight and be alluring or it can deceive and trick — like the magic of the financial sector. So, it’s an attraction/repulsion thing.” ELENA GOUKASSIAN (FOR EXPRESS)

WHO THE HECK IS ...
Etiology By Teri Gillmor
“That can happen,” Wilson says. In fact, one song, “Illumination,” features a distorted, slow-burning guitar progression that sounds suspiciously similar to Neil Young’s “Danger Bird.” “Somebody in the band said it sounded like that tune and I went back and listened to it and said, ‘Oh f---, it does,’” Wilson says. Ultimately, though, the final version “blossomed into its own thing.” For “Fanfare,” the veteran producer, session musician and singer-songwriter had the benefit of playing with some of the very heroes who inspired the record: Browne, David Crosby and Graham Nash are among the long list of players who sat in on the sessions.

Befitting Wilson’s background as a producer and composer, the first three minutes of “Fanfare’s” album-opening title track are entirely instrumental — a grandiose, sweeping piano-driven segment with strings arranged by Wilco’s Patrick Sansone. At seven minutes long, the track is a mission statement of sorts for the 13-song, 78-minute album that spans genres and song structures (only three tracks are less than five minutes; most feature lengthy solos and spacey jam sections). Wilson composed the basic tracks for “Fanfare” on a rented Steinway grand piano, a change from his 2011 debut, “Gentle Spirit,” which he wrote mostly on acoustic guitar. “One of the brilliant things about a good piano, and particularly a piano of that size, is [how] a very simple passage sounds beautiful,” Wilson says. “The piano was definitely commanding the album.”
Every Thursday in Express
Friends in High Places
Listening to Jonathan Wilson’s epic new album, “Fanfare,” is like reading a dense novel full of literary allusions. Every track is packed with references to the music he loves: The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. It’s a fine line to walk — paying homage to your musical heroes without coming off like a lesser imitation.
Wilson, 39, moved from North Carolina to Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon in 2005 and, through one of his old bandmates, befriended Browne. “Jackson is one of my best buddies,” Wilson says.
“We hang out all the time and go to guitar shops and go out to dinner — just do s---.” Browne added vocal flourishes to “Fanfare” and helped hook Wilson up with Crosby and Nash. The pair add their distinctive, haunting vocal harmonies to “Fanfare’s” “Cecil Taylor,” which sounds like it could be an outtake from Crosby’s unheralded 1971 solo album “If I Could Only Remember My Name.” Wilson even coaxed Crosby into scatting. “It’s just like holy s---, man, so much deep expression, particularly
“Years down the road, maybe it will all make a bit more sense to me, but now, they’re just my buds … It’s a continuing education, which is what this thing is anyway when it’s done right.” — JON AT H A N W IL SON , ON BEFRIENDING AND JAMMING WITH JACKSON BROWNE, DAVID CROSBY AND GRAHAM NASH
[for] a scat singing improvisation,” Wilson says. He has also become friends with The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, whom he’s jammed with on several occasions. On tour (he’ll stop in D.C. on Sunday) Wilson and his fourpiece backing band have two ’70s-era live Dead box sets on a loop in the van. “That’s what we’re rocking,” he says.
Behind the Scenes Wilson worked as a producer and session musician (in 2008, he appeared on Elvis Costello’s “Momofuku” and Jenny Lewis’ “Acid Tongue”) before people started to notice him for his own music. He produced the first two albums from L.A. rock band Dawes, Father John Misty’s 2012 album “Fear Fun” and Bright Eyes leader Conor Oberst’s upcoming country-rock record “Upside Down Mountain.” “I think part of the job as a producer, a big part, is being a vibe juggler, [being] diplomatic and keeping the ball going,” Wilson says.

Chemical Distractions ‘Undone’ bubbles to life with oil, ink and secret ingredients
‘GHOST PLANET B1158’ At the center of the planet (made of liquid) is a large air bubble, which C. Andrew Rohrmann coaxed into place intentionally. “In the video, you can see all those tiny bubbles come up and collect on the surface of the planet,” he says. The swirly nebula is black ink, which quickly engulfed the planet. “Two seconds later, [the scene is] ugly again,” Rohrmann says.
“[Viewers] can tell that it’s real and it’s small, but it reminds them of something very big.” — C. A NDRE W ROHRM A NN , CREATOR, “UNDONE”
known hymn or classical work. Rohrmann created the videos in his basement, mad scientist-style, using a variety of chemicals he is loath to disclose. “I hate to be secretive,” he says. “But telling someone exactly how it is done ruins the magic.” He does admit to using a variety of ordinary oils and inks, plus a few more exotic substances, though “nothing that would put me on a terrorist watch list.” Rohrmann drops them into a beaker and captures the results with a digital video camera and a high-magnification lens. “Sometimes I get two good minutes out of an entire day of shooting,” Rohrmann says. His high failure rate may, in part, be due to the fact he’s an artist, not a chemist. “I don’t really know, technically, what is happening, but I keep pretty detailed notes so I can repeat the things that work,” Rohrmann says. “Someday I will ask a scientist what is going on.” SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)
‘NEBULA 0202RN’ Most of the time, Rohrmann uses a $600 digital camera with a rented high-magnification lens. For this shoot, however, his friend TJ Williams Jr., a cinematographer, brought over pricier equipment. So when Rohrmann set this galaxy in motion by spinning a beaker of chemicals on a turntable, “I was panicking that I was going to spill something really bad on TJ’s $10,000 lens,” he says.

Have you ever seen the Milky Way in a swirl of cream in your coffee? Then you’re either a fan of D.C. decriminalizing marijuana or you’re C. Andrew Rohrmann, a Seattle-based artist whose video installation “Undone” is at Artisphere. Four TV screens and a two-story projection show what look like the birth of galaxies and planets. The movement of tiny air bubbles signal that you’re looking at a small puddle of colored liquid, not the Big Bang. “I originally tried taking out those imperfections,” Rohrmann says of the bubbles. “But then I decided to leave them in so that viewers can get both experiences at once. They can tell that it’s real and it’s small, but it reminds them of something very big.” The music is also not what it seems. Listen closely and you’ll find that the buzzing, droning noise is a slowed-down version of a well-

‘UNDONE 4086B’ To create this image, Rohrmann simply dropped oil-based ink into water. “I shot it top-down with a light table underneath,” he says. Unlike most of his videos, this one doesn’t necessarily resemble anything you might see through a telescope. “But it looked so damn cool, so I kept it,” he says.
‘PLANET 1211’ After Rohrmann dropped liquid onto the planet (itself liquid, but holding the shape of a sphere), it spread across the surface in fits and starts, forming continents and islands as it went. This was not what the artist expected would happen. “The terraforming effect was actually a failed attempt to make Saturn-like rings,” Rohrmann says.

FARE OF THE HEART
Swati Bose & Kabir Amir | Flight Wine Bar
There’s no recipe for the perfect marriage. But these local couples who own restaurants seem to have all the right ingredients.
Some spouses know each other so well they can finish each other’s sentences. To them, we’d say stop that. If they think they’re so compatible, they should try running a restaurant together. According to U.S. census data from 2003 to 2010, an average of 50,000 restaurants close annually. Add to that the fact that an estimated 40 percent of first marriages end in divorce, and the odds seem stacked against married couples who own a food venture. Yet the following restaurateurs who are sweet on each other are thriving at it. As you make your Valentine’s Day plans, consider eating at one of these restaurants and spreading the love. XOXO.

“After having a child and opening a restaurant, I think we worked out most of the issues.” Radius Pizzeria in Mount Pleasant has changed ownership three times in the past seven years, though it seems to have found a forever home in the hands of Lenka and Matt Culbertson. And that’s not just because the couple, who married nine years ago, live in the same building as the neighborhood haunt. “Whenever our chef roasts garlic, I can smell it upstairs,” says Lenka, who hails from the Czech Republic and previously worked in accounting. She and Matt (a self-taught chef and the former owner of Cowboy Cafe in Arlington) were longtime fans of Radius before they took ownership in August 2012. Rather than changing the concept, they increased portion sizes, trimmed prices and added

doughnuts made from pizza dough. “We tried to take the best of the previous version and make it friendly for young professionals,” Lenka says. Even still, Matt and Lenka’s most frequent customer is their 6-year-old daughter Sofia, whose artwork peppers the walls and who, on any given night, can be found playing with customers’ iPhones or chatting with them
about cats. “After having a child and opening a restaurant, I think we worked out most of the issues,” Lenka says. Except maybe for one. “There’s a drink I made Matt put on our drink list. It’s called Czechmate, and people in Czech drink it like Coke,” Lenka says of the blend of red wine and soda. (Radius’ version is made from cherry wine, Coke and bourbon.) “Every time we go through a menu change he wants to take it off, and I’m like nope, you can’t do it.” Radius Pizzeria, 3155 Mount Pleasant St. NW; 202-234-0202, radiuspizza.com.

Luckily for Kabir Amir, his wife of six years, Swati Bose, believes in second chances. “The first time I met Kabir, I didn’t like him very much,” Bose says with a laugh of the time he crashed her Fourth of July party in D.C. 12 years ago. The next night, the two found themselves at a birthday party for a mutual friend, and Bose learned what a standup guy Amir is. The two began a long-distance relationship while pursuing graduate degrees (he in business at Yale, she in law at Brooklyn Law School) before they got married and wistfully dreamed about one day opening a wine bar together. Then life happened. “I got a little sick and realized I couldn’t work for a corporate law firm,” Bose says. “So we thought, let’s just do it now. Life is short.” Enter Flight Wine Bar, the 60-seat restaurant they opened in January with dishes from Graffiato alum Bradley Curtis and more than 70 selections of boutique wines. With equal amounts passion and ambition, the two are navigating yet another chapter together. “Like marriage, run-

ning a restaurant is a constant effort and rewarding at the same time,” Bose says. “There are constant compromises, but at the end of every night it’s very rewarding.” Both Amir and Bose admit they couldn’t have opened Flight without the other, especially because his business knowhow perfectly complements her culinary knowledge. (Did we mention Bose also has a degree in hotel management from the French Culinary Institute?) Despite their accomplishments, they’re hesitant to call themselves a power couple. “We’re just common people trying to get along,” Amir says.

Now, not a night goes by that the two don’t greet at least one of their regulars with a huge hug. That’s not to say running the restaurant is like having pals over for a casual dinner party every night. “It’s a lot of work as a couple to run a business, let alone a restaurant,” Gross says. “But,” Pitts says, “at the end of the day, we are in love with each other, and that’s reflective in here and in our children. Our son’s middle name is Luca, which is the town in Tuscany where I told her I loved her for the first time.” Pitts is full of bold moves: After
spotting Gross at The Big Hunt in 1997 (the two met briefly through a mutual friend three years earlier), Pitts approached her and told her he’d like to kiss her, and that if she’d like to kiss him, he’d be “standing over there.” Again, the risk paid off: The two started dating and got married 10 years later. “Then we opened the restaurant in ’08,” Pitts says. “We opened [the market across the street] in ’09; we had a son in ’10; we bought a house in ’11; we gutted the house and rebuilt it in ’12; and we had another baby in ’13.” Here’s to a fruitful 2014.

It’s fitting that Che RuddellTabisola, below left, and his husband of five years, Tadd, below right, started a food truck together, considering their initial meeting involved a car. “I was at a house party and before running out to make a beer run I asked if anyone wanted anything,” Che says. “A guy in a leather jacket said he needed a pack of smokes so he’d come with. He drove a Mustang so he offered to drive. He thought he was so cool.” To his credit, Tadd did have some smooth moves. It was on their second date, when he shared a shoebox of family photographs with Che, that he really sealed the deal. “I was touched that I’d just met him and he was showing me pictures of his mom and dad and grandma,” Che says. “That was when I first thought this could be something for the long haul.” After

a brief stint in Brussels (where Che earned a degree in international conflict analysis) and a six-month respite in Tampa, Fla., with Tadd’s grandfather (a restaurateur who taught him how to make a mean chicken pot pie), the two landed in D.C., where Che worked at the Human Rights Campaign and Tadd went to culinary school. It’s been a wild ride since the two launched the BBQ Bus over 2½ years ago, but it’s the small victories that propel them forward: The duo just took home three blue ribbons during this year’s Meat Week, and they look back fondly at their first Yelp review from April 2011. “We’d probably slept six hours the entire weekend,” Che says. “We got our first Yelp review, and it was good. We sat on the curb crying because we’d worked so hard and somebody liked what we did,” Che says. BBQ Bus, @bbqbusdc; 202-656-7287

The walls are red, t he music Viera embraces Spanish classical guitar and the rustic tables turn out to be made from old joists in the building. The food comes by way of Rafael Viera, a native of El Salvador. Before Dunya, the chef cooked at Carriage House in Adams Morgan, the late Axis Bar & Grill on U Street NW and the Whole Foods Market in Tenleytown. Circle Bistro in the West End was an even earlier employer. A cheer y ser ver at Dunya encourages us to start with portobello fries, and we’re glad to have followed her lead. The finger-length spears of mushroom, presented in a cone, are juicy inside and crisp from a dusting of panko. A dip into cool basil mayonnaise tames the snack’s heat. Chickpeas seasoned with smoked paprika and partnered with sauteed spinach and a fried egg seems like something you’d make from what you have on hand at home when time is short. The combination is good for a few bites. Lamb shank gets cooked in

Chicken is flavored with preserved lemon, green olives and cumin — accents that help a diner forgive the fact that the roasted entree is dry in parts. Finesse is not this kitchen’s strong suit. But dessert is. The sweets, made from scratch, include a pleasant panna

cotta and a better cheesecake, tinted green with pistachios and easy to finish. You wouldn’t drive miles to try Dunya, which translates into “world” in Arabic. But if it happens to be where you are, and you’re hungry, the restaurant makes a cozy roost for a meal. TOM SIETSEMA (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Jeter to Retire at End of Season Baseball Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter says he will retire after this season “with absolutely no regrets,” ending one of the greatest careers in the history of baseball’s most storied franchise. The 39-year-old New York captain posted a long letter on his Facebook page Wednesday saying that 2014 will be his ﬁnal year. Jeter was limited to 17 games last season while trying to recover from a broken left ankle sustained
Career Highlights In his nearly two decades in the Bronx, Derek Jeter has etched his name into Yankee lore. Here are some of his career highlights heading into his last season:
13-time All-Star Five-time World Series champion 1996 Rookie of the Year Five-time Gold Glove winner Five-time Silver Slugger winner 3,316 hits, most in Yankees history .312 career batting average, seventh in Yankees history 525 doubles, second-most in Yankees history
CHRIS O’MEARA (AP)
Yankee captain says he has ‘no regrets’ in Facebook statement
Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter made his MLB debut as a 20-year-old in 1995.
during the 2012 playoffs. “I know it in my heart. The 2014 season will be my last year playing professional baseball,” he wrote.
Jeter was the last link to the powerful Yankees teams that won three straight World Series crowns from 1998-2000. Longtime teammates Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte retired after last year. “Derek Jeter is Mr. Yankee of his era,” Yankees co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner said. “He was the face of one of the greatest teams ever.” The Yankees will open the 2014 regular season on April 1 in Houston. Their home opener is April 7 against Baltimore. Like Rivera last year, Jeter is sure to be saluted wherever he goes in this ﬁnal season. “Now it is time for the next chapter,” he wrote.

A Mess of Spare Parts
Twizzle Me This
Some people think the Winter Olympics are boring. Not true! NBC’s telecast offers a refrigerator full of food for deep thoughts: Many Olympians have a “signature move.” Is it too late for me to get one? Why is that thing when ice dancers turn on one foot called a “twizzle”? Russia’s ice dancers, pictured above, danced to “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” Wouldn’t Lenin have preferred the By Marc classic Soviet anthem, Silver “A Hammer and a Sickle Are a Babushka’s Best Comrades?” U.S. snowboarder Chas Guldemond has a mental coach who “asks him how he’s doing all the time.” Where can I find such a coach because I REALLY NEED ONE!? Could Canada and the U.S. merge their teams into “CanAmerica,” so both nations have more athletes to cheer for? NBC host Bob Costas believes it’d “take a weeklong [opening] ceremony to touch on every aspect” of Russian culture because “there’s a lot of it.” Yet Leo Tolstoy wrote: “All we can know is that we know nothing” — which would seem to argue for a 60-second opening act. Can we ask Putin to weigh in? Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
The crime thriller ‘RoboCop’ isn’t nearly as well-oiled as the satiric 1987 original Film Review
“RoboCop,” the 1987 action satire directed by Paul Verhoeven, was one of the most ingenious films of its era. It both exploited the aggressive aesthetic of ’80s blockbusters and subtly mocked it, all the while delivering prescient observations about Reagan-era privatization. It was so good, in fact, that it counts as one of those films that doesn’t need to be remade. In the hands of director Jose Padilha (“Bus 174,” “Elite Squad”), the “RoboCop” of today manages to meet expectations without

The original ‘RoboCop’ was so good that it counts as one of those ﬁlms that doesn’t need to be remade. exceeding them. Lightly following the original story line, this iteration makes a few tweaks here and there, hewing to the most recognizable contours but dispensing with the most hard-edged violence and gore. Police ofﬁcer Alex Murphy is still an upright Detroit cop battling crime on the streets and corruption inside his precinct; when a fatal explosion takes his life, he is whisked away
by the bright and shiny company OmniCorp and reconﬁgured as a part-human cyborg, the perfect melding of man and machine and an ideal marketing tool for selling Americans on the idea of robotic law enforcement. The Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman — familiar to some viewers from his starring role on the AMC series “The Killing” — plays Murphy with convincing melancholy and conviction. Padilha has assembled a supporting cast that conveys both the gravitas and parodic humor that intertwine through “RoboCop’s” DNA: Michael Keaton projects equal parts menace and Yuppie blandness as OmniCorp
‘RoboCop’ (PG-13) Director: Jose Padilha Stars: Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson In a Nutshell: In 2028 Detroit, when police officer Alex Murphy is critically injured in the line of duty, a multinational conglomerate sees its chance for a part-man, part-robot law enforcement agent.
CEO Raymond Sellars; Gary Oldman is all apologies as Murphy’s benevolent Dr. Frankenstein, Dennett Norton; Abbie Cornish delivers a solemn portrayal of Murphy’s wife; and Samuel L. Jackson pops up periodically as a goofy Greek
chorus in the form of a TV pundit. All of the ingredients are there, but the ﬁlm’s action is incendiary, frantic and, ultimately, enervating. Fans of the original movie will recognize some of its best lines, as well as Murphy classics, wherein he delivers niceties and beat-cop jargon in a stiff, robotic bark. For all its playfulness, the new “RoboCop” lacks the novelty of the original’s jolting mixture of dumbsmart irony and visceral pulp. Presumably, “RoboCop” is beginning life anew as yet another franchise. But it does so with much of its potential vaguely unrealized, like one of Murphy’s phantom limbs.

Eric Church pushes the limits of his country rock roots on “The Outsiders.”
Songs From an Identity Crisis Eric Church merges several distinct voices on ‘The Outsiders’ Album Review Eric Church is developing two separate and distinct personalities that seem to wrestle each other on his fourth and best album, “The Outsiders.” There’s that guy with the hat and sunglasses and the love of rock ’n’ roll, whiskey and fist fights. And then there’s the version of Church who wins (or loses) the girl and tickles the funny bone with hits that appeal to country music’s bedrock fan base. Both these guys are at their best on “The Outsiders,” one-upping each other with songs that embrace the breadth and history of country music while ignoring those conventions to explore far aﬁeld. Manag-
ing this trick requires a delicate touch, and Church pushes the limits while maintaining the balance. Don’t like the heavy rock riffs and leather jacket-clad message of the Black Sabbath-leaning title song? There’s tear-jerker ballad “A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young.” Tired of the party songs that f lood the radio? His answer is “Cold One,” which offers a twist on a tired theme. Need a couples song for you and your new country gal? Try “Talladega,” which turns auto racing into an epic love poem. The organ on “Like a Wrecking Ball” and the trumpet at the end of “The Joint” are delightful moments. He even tries his hand at spokenword noir on “Devil, Devil.” “The Outsiders” is full of little flourishes like these that aren’t necessary but show a restless creativity that requires repeated listening.

Enjoy greater comfort and energy savings this winter. Some people call it nesting—the simple act of enjoying your home. When winter comes, you want that nest, your home, to be warm and cozy. But you also want to keep energy costs in line. Washington Gas has a few simple things you can do that can help save money on your winter heating bills, without giving up the comfort you want. • Have a licensed natural gas contractor perform a complete inspection of your heating and water heater systems • Set your thermostat comfortably low in winter and consider installing a programmable thermostat. Setting your thermostat set just one degree lower can save you as much as 3 percent. • Install proper insulation in your home. • When you’re not using a ﬁreplace, close the ﬂue. • Replace your furnace ﬁlter once a month. • Turn your hot water heater down to warm or low, never more than 120 degrees. • Replace all cracked or broken window glass, consider adding storm windows, caulk and weatherstrip doors and windows. • Wash full loads of laundry and dishes. For more information and additional energy saving tips visit washingtongas.com.
Take advantage of our Budget Plan. With the Washington Gas Budget Plan, you’ll be able to spread the higher cost of winter heating into the warmer months. You’ll pay the same amount each month for natural gas. It costs nothing to enroll. To sign up for The Budget Payment Plan, call 703-750-1000 or log on to washingtongas.com.

Pizza lovers who wish to dine there, however, need to follow Aycock’s strict rules if they want to be served: 1) Never order just a slice; 2) Never ask him how long it’ll take; and 3) Never ever order anything that’s not on the menu.
