She’d Likely Be the Least Corrupt One in the Court At least one prospective juror in New Jersey could take a bite out of crime. Cumberland County has summoned IV Griner to jury duty. The only problem is IV is a 5-year-old German shepherd. Her owner, Barrett Griner IV, tells KYWTV in Philadelphia he uses the Roman numeral for four in his name. He named his dog using the letters “I’’ and “V,” likely causing the confusion. (AP) MOVIE SCRIPTS

Year After Blast, Still Asking ‘Why?’ Victims seek closure after plant explosion that killed 15 in Texas Families of the 15 people killed in a massive explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant have spent the year since the blast navigating the difficult balance between moving forward and digging for answers from the past. Many of them filed lawsuits seeking answers after a fire at West Fertilizer Company caused a blast so powerful that it leveled nearby schools and homes, left a wide crater at the plant site, and scattered debris miles away. Key questions about the April 17, 2013, blast remain unanswered, including what sparked the fire and what

firefighters knew about the chemicals inside the plant. The lawsuits are mired in a legal process that could eventually uncover new details through testimony and documents. But that process will take at least another year to complete.
Several relatives acknowledge those questions but say they want to move on and not dwell on the past. About 70 homes have been finished or are in the process of construction, and the wreckage at West Fertilizer has been long cleared away. “In some ways, I want to know,
‘Why did this happen?’ ” said Holly Harris, whose husband, Dallas Fire-Rescue Capt. Kenneth “Luckey” Harris, was killed while trying to pull other firefighters away from the smoldering plant. She is among those who have filed a lawsuit. “But maybe we’ll never know, and if we keep trying to figure it out, we’ll drive ourselves crazy.” Investigators determined that a fire ignited as much as 34 tons of ammonium nitrate, a common but potentially explosive component in fertilizer. But they have not pinpointed what started the fire or announced whether volunteer firefighters rushing into the blaze knew enough about the dangers they faced. Among those killed in West were a dozen volunteer firefighters and others trying to help. NOMAAN MERCHANT (ap)
Get Out the Eraser: College Board Releases Preview of New SAT Washington Calculate the foreign exchange rate a vacationing American would pay in India. Estimate from a random sample the number of 18- to 34-yearolds who voted for a candidate. These are sample questions from the newly redesigned SAT, which aims for more real-world applications and analysis from students.
How Would You Do? 4x - y = 3y + 7 and x + 8y = 4. Based on the system of equations above, what is the value of the product xy? a) -3/2 b) 1/4 c) 1/2 d) 11/9 Want more suffering? Take a sample test at washingtonpost.com. (And find this answer on page 4)
BLACK & MISSING FOUNDATION
The College Board released the sample test questions Wednesday, offering clues to how the revised college entrance exam, taken last year by 1.7 million students, will look when it rolls out in 2016. One of the biggest changes is that relatively obscure vocabulary words such as “punctilious” and “lachrymose” are unlikely to appear on the test. Test takers will
see words more likely to be used in classrooms or in the workplace, such as “synthesis.” Instead of a wide range, the math section will concentrate on areas that “matter most for college and career readiness and success,” the College Board said. And it now will require a student to read a passage and explain how the author constructed an argument. KIMBERLY HEFLING (AP)
Federal Judge Overturns Six-Week Abortion Ban
A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law banning abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision.

Boston The man arrested near the Boston Marathon ﬁnish line carrying a backpack containing a rice cooker was sent to a state psychiatric facility for an evaluation Wednesday. Kevin “Kayvon” Edson, 25, was sent to Bridgewater State Hospital and ordered held on $100,000 bail at an appearance in Boston Municipal Court. He was arrested Tues-
day hours after ceremonies to mark last year’s Boston Marathon bombings, in which two bombs hidden in backpacks exploded, killing three and injuring more than 260 others. The backpack incident rattled nerves days ahead of this year’s race. Edson was stopped late Tuesday after passers-by told an ofﬁcer they saw him yelling, walking barefoot down the middle of a street, veiled in black, in pouring
rain. The backpack was destroyed. Police determined that its contents were not explosive. According to a police report, after Edson was read his rights, he told an ofﬁcer: “I knew what I was doing, it was conceived in my head. It’s symbolism, come on. The performance got the best of me.” Edson’s mother said her son has battled bipolar disorder for years. PAIGE SUTHERL AND (AP)

Robber Never Told to Report To Prison — Until 13 Years Later St. Louis After he was convicted of armed robbery in 2000, Cornealious Anderson was sentenced to 13 years and told to await instructions on when to report to prison. But those instructions never came. So Anderson didn’t report. He Anderson spent t he ne x t 13 years turning his life around — getting married, raising three kids, learning a trade. He made no effort to conceal his identity or whereabouts. Anderson paid taxes and trafﬁc tickets, renewed his driver’s license and registered his businesses. Not until last year did the Missouri Department of Corrections discover the clerical error that kept him free. Now he’s fighting for release, saying authorities missed their chance to incarcerate him. Last July, Anderson, 37, was taken to prison to begin serving the sentence. A court appeal ﬁled in February asks for him to be freed. JIM SALTER (AP)

Syrian Rebels Obtain U.S. Antitank Missiles Syria’s opposition fighters have been supplied with U.S.-made antitank missiles, the first time a major American weapons system has appeared in rebel hands. It is unclear how the rebels obtained the wire-guided missiles, which are capable of penetrating heavy armor and fortifications and are standard in the U.S. military arsenal. U.S. officials declined to discuss the origin of the weapons but did not dispute that the rebels have them. (THE WASHINGTON POST) PERTH, AUSTRALIA
Sub Has More Trouble In Search for Flight 370 As a robotic submarine dived into the ocean to look for lost Flight 370, angry Chinese relatives stormed out of a teleconference meeting Wednesday to protest the Malaysian government for not addressing them in person.

It was sent back into the water after its data were downloaded but there’s been no sign of the plane, according to the search coordinator. (AP)
Families travel to see hundreds that were buried in mass grave Sejkovaca, BosniaHerzegovina Denisa Hegic pulled her scarf around her nose to guard against the stench, and drew back the plastic shroud. Shaking, she reached down to touch her mother’s skull, and caressed it. The last time she touched her mother she was bleeding on the ﬂoor of the family home, slain by Bosnian Serb soldiers storming their tiny village in northwestern Bosnia. On Wednesday, mother and daughter were reunited in a cavernous building used to house the
remains of victims newly excavated from the mass grave in Tomasica, 125 miles northwest of Sarajevo. “I found her body,” she said. Hegic’s experience is being repeated this week by many survivors of Bosnia’s 1992-1995 war, as experts begin allowing families to view the remains meticulously pulled from the earth and identiﬁed through DNA analysis. Hundreds of families are expected to make the sad pilgrimage to see the dead. On July 20, 1992, when Hegic was 8, people in the tiny village of Biscani heard the Bosnian Serbs were coming. Her parents hid her in the basement. When the soldiers came, they shot her mother, her father, her grandparents, her three uncles and her three cousins. Hegic and her aunt survived.
Denisa Hegic saw her mother’s remains Wednesday for the first time.
She eventually settled in Germany and married a boy from her village that she knew as a child. They both gave DNA samples, as he also lost his father in the attack. They were called Tuesday and drove back to Bosnia as soon as they heard. They found them-
selves early Wednesday, waiting with others, looking for corpses. So far, 430 victims were found in the Tomasica grave. The pit contains victims of Bosnian Serb military units who killed Muslim Bosniaks and Roman Catholic Croats in hopes of creating an ethnically pure region. Family members coming to view remains are offering statements to prosecutors to assist in efforts to prosecute former Bosnian Serb Gen. Ratko Mladic, who is being tried for war crimes at the U.N. tribunal in the Netherlands. The tribunal has sentenced 16 Bosnian Serbs to a total of 230 years for the crimes committed in the closest town, Prijedor, but no one has yet been held responsible for the killings in Hegic’s village.

Tensions escalated in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday, with pro-Russian gunmen storming City Hall in the sprawling city of Donetsk and commandeering half a dozen Ukrainian armored vehicles and their crews outside Slovyansk. The events signaled a challenge ahead for the pro-Western Ukrainian government on the second day of its campaign to quell the restive east and came as Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that Ukraine was on the verge “of a civil war.” The Ukrainian soldiers manning the vehicles offered no armed resistance, and masked pro-Russian militias in combat fatigues sat on top as they drove into the eastern city of Slovyansk, a hotbed of unrest against Ukraine’s interim government.

Proposal would first add them to one span of the 14th St. bridge Washington D.C. officials are considering creating carpool and toll lanes on part of the 14th Street bridge and other stretches of city highway as early as next year, offering motorists with means a way of speeding their commute and pushing the city into the debate over “congestion pricing.” The High Occupancy Toll, or HOT, lanes would be free for cars carrying at least three people, according to a D.C. planning study.
Others would use an E-ZPass to pay a toll that would shift depending on the amount of trafﬁc. There are similar lanes in place along the Capital Beltway in Virginia. Under the proposals, the middle span over the Potomac River from Virginia — known as the Rochambeau Bridge — would be included in the new carpool and toll arrangement, while the other two bridges would remain free for all trafﬁc. A key goal is to reduce the number of vehicles carrying single drivers as a way of easing congestion. Disparaged by some as “Lexus Lanes” and praised by others as at least a partial market-based solution for persistent traffic snarls,

D.C. May Get Carpool, Toll Lanes

HOT lanes would be a departure for D.C., which has no toll lanes. Faisal Hameed, part of the District Department of Transportation’s team of project planners, empha-

sized that there would be a toll-free choice for any driver who doesn’t want to pay. That differentiates the proposals from more old-school toll roads and bridges, he said. Further proposals would carve out one lane in each direction on interstates 395 and 695 in the District for HOT lanes, and two new lanes could be added for the effort along part of Interstate 295, the Anacostia Freeway. The 14th Street part of the project is the simpler and less expensive leg of the proposal, and the one that could happen the fastest. It would cost $7 million or $8 million, according to DDOT project manager Clarence Dickerson. MICHAEL L ARIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Bodies of Two Men Found The bodies of two adult men were found near the west-bound ramp onto I-295 in Southeast on Wednesday morning, authorities said.

They could be the first reported hypothermia deaths in D.C. after a punishing winter. (THE WASHINGTON POST) WASHINGTON

Gay Democrats’ Dilemma in D.C. Back Catania as city’s ﬁrst LGBT mayor or put their party ﬁrst? Washington In November, D.C. voters will have the first opportunity to elect an openly gay mayor. David Catania, the at-large independent who 17 years ago became the D.C. Council’s first gay member, says he is determined to challenge Democratic nominee and fellow lawmaker Muriel Bowser. As Catania gears up his independent run, his candidacy puts gay Democrats in a tough spot: Vote for the contender who would be the city’s ﬁrst openly gay mayor — and one of the ﬁrst gay mayors of any major American city — or remain loyal to the party that has backed major advances in gay rights?

The Parade Marches On
Democratic power structure dates to at least 1978, when the gay community formed a crucial part of upstart mayoral candidate Marion Barry’s winning coalition. That inﬂuence has resulted in a string of legislative advances, culminating in the 2009 legalization of same-sex marriage. Catania said he does not expect gay voters to support him merely because he is gay. “In 17 years, I have never asked a person to vote

for or against my sexual orientation,” he said. “I’m asking people to support me because I’ve been a ﬁghter on behalf of issues and priorities that are important to them.” Bowser’s record on gay and lesbian issues is undoubtedly thinner. Aside from her co-introduction of a bill to aid homeless LGBT youths, her record is based more on votes cast than legislation introduced. Many gay activists say they are nonetheless convinced that Bowser will be every bit as supportive of their community as Catania. One striking feature of Catania’s mayoral run is that, as a gay, white non-Democrat, he would be a pioneer among D.C. mayors in each of those categories, let alone all of them together. And that has left him to navigate a sea of identity politics in which his sexual orientation may be the least of his obstacles.
Philip Reid has finally gotten the recognition due him more than 100 years after he was first buried. A former slave who played a pivotal role in casting the giant bronze Statue of Freedom atop the U.S. Capitol dome, Reid now has a historical marker at the National Harmony Cemetery noting his contribution and the fact that he died a free man. The marker was unveiled ﬁttingly on Wednesday, Emancipation Day, which commemorates the day in 1862 that President Lincoln abolished slavery in D.C. That is how the slave who helped construct the
symbol of freedom over the Capitol gained his own freedom. The marker, arranged by an author trying to resurrect significant, but overlooked, moments in American history, lies in a section of the cemetery where a new garden will be named for Solomon Northup, who wrote “Twelve Years a Slave.” Reid, who in spite of being a slave with no resources and bearing his master’s name, helped create one of the most iconic statues, the Statue of Freedom. The bronze marker honors the accomplishments of Philip Reed, using the spelling that Reid preferred to use after he was freed. CAROL MORELLO (THE WASHINGTON POST )

A Crash. A Tilt. Then Chaos. Nearly 300 people — many students — still missing after ferry sinks off S. Korea Mokpo, South Korea Koo Bon-hee could see the exit. For half an hour, as the doomed ferry ﬁlled with water and listed severely on its side, the crew told passengers to wait for rescuers. With their breathing room disappearing, the 36-year-old and some of the other passengers ﬂoated to an exit and swam to a nearby ﬁshing boat. But 290 of the 475 people aboard — many of them high school students on a class trip — were still missing after the ferry sank Wednesday in the Yellow Sea off the southern coast of South Korea.

(AP) sur v ivors f rom the ferry, which slipped beneath the surface until only the blue-tipped, forward edge of the keel was visible. The high number of people unaccounted for — possibly trapped in the ship or ﬂoating in the chilly water nearby — raised fears that the death toll could increase drastically. It was still unknown why the ferry sank, and the coast guard was interviewing the captain and crew. The Sewol, a 480-foot vessel that can hold more than 900 people, set sail Tuesday from Incheon, in northwestern South Korea, on an overnight, 14-hour journey to the tourist island of Jeju. About 9 a.m. Wednesday, when it was three hours from Jeju, the ferry sent a distress call after it began list-

many people were trapped inside the ferry as water rushed in and the severe tilt of the vessel kept them from reaching the exits. Koo also complained about the crew’s efforts during the initial stages of the disaster, saying early misjudgments may account for the large number of missing. In addition to the order not to evac-
uate immediately, Koo said many people were trapped inside by windows that were too hard to break. “The rescue wasn’t done well. We were wearing life jackets. We had time,” Koo said from a hospital bed in Mokpo. “If people had jumped into the water … they could have been rescued. But we were told not to go out.” Oh Yong-seok, a crew member, said that rescue efforts were hampered by the ferry’s severe tilt. “We couldn’t even move one step,” Oh said. “The slope was too big.” Student Lim Hyung-min told YTN that he and others jumped into
the water wearing life jackets and then swam to a rescue boat. “As the ferry was shaking and tilting, we all tripped and bumped into each other,” he said. Once he jumped, the ocean “was so cold. … I was hurrying, thinking that I wanted to live.” Coast guard spokesman Cho Man-yong said divers couldn’t get inside the ferry Wednesday night because the current was too strong, but divers would try again today. “We cannot give up,” said South Korean President Park Geun-hye. “We have to do our best to rescue even one passenger.” FOSTER K LUG AND YOUK YUNG LEE (AP)

Staying Cool at Hot Corner Rendon comfortable ﬁlling in at third base with Zimmerman out
Quarterback Josh Freeman played in one game for the Vikings last season.
Giants Add Freeman as Backup QB
In a game last week against the Marlins, Nationals infielder Anthony Rendon sprinted down the third base line to field a bunt from Reed Johnson. Rendon barehanded the ball and threw it to ﬁrst just in time to record an out. It was nothing new for Washington’s opening day starting second baseman, who played third in college at Rice.
“I guess I still have a little bit left,” Rendon said. That particular play came when Ryan Zimmerman was sidelined with a shoulder injury. Since then, Zimmerman broke his thumb and was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Rendon has had to temporarily shift from second to third. Rendon played third base in nine of Washington’s ﬁrst 18 games. He’s started ﬁve at third and has a perfect fielding percentage at the position, recording three putouts and 10 assists in 13 defensive chances. “He’s accustomed to playing over there,” Nationals manager Matt Williams said. “It’s not something that’s foreign to him.” Before he was called up a year ago, Rendon spent plenty of time at third base in the minors, play-

ing there in 56 games. With Zimmerman experiencing shoulder problems and ﬁrst baseman Adam LaRoche, 34, facing a mutual option decision in 2015, Washington could move Zimmerman across the diamond and make Rendon the club’s full-time third baseman. In the meantime, Rendon’s simply subbing in with Danny Espinosa manning second, where Espinosa opened 2013 as the starter. “We don’t want Ryan down but if something like this hap-

After slumping a bit in last weekend’s series against the Braves, Rendon bounced back with three hits, including a double and a triple, in the ﬁrst two games of Washington’s midweek series against the Marlins. One key to his start has been an even-keeled approach, which has kept him from pressing in games. “I feel comfortable and feel relaxed,” Rendon said. “I try to stay relaxed so I don’t try to do too much.” JASON BUT T (FOR E XPRESS)

If something does happen like this, we can put guys in different spots.” In addition to his defense, Rendon has gotten off to a hot start at the plate.

A person familiar with the deal says quarterback Josh Freeman has agreed to terms with the New York Giants. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the team had not announced the move. Freeman was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in October after a messy split. He signed with Minnesota four days later but played just one game for the Vikings. That happened to come against the Giants, when he went 20-for-53 for 190 yards and one interception in an ugly 23-7 Monday night loss. The 17th pick in the 2009 draft, Freeman started 59 games for the Bucs over four-plus seasons before the relationship soured. Freeman will compete to back up Eli Manning with the Giants.

Singer-songwriter William Fitzsimmons is bringing along a full band for his latest tour. He’s also bringing a full beard.
Doing His Own Thing Rather than fight it, William Fitzsimmons embraces who he is Music
APRIL 22 JUNE 1
When William Fitzsimmons was heading into the studio to record his latest record, “Lions,” he decided it was finally time to rock out. K now n mostly as a (ver y) bearded, acoustic, sad-sack singersongwriter, Fitzsimmons had released four albums filled with more or less the same thing: cleanly picked acoustic guitars, whispery vocals, skittering electronics. Most of his tunes sounded like they’d fit perfectly on “Grey’s Anatomy” — which explains why a few wound up on the show. Criticism of Fitzsimmons’ reluctance to venture outside his comfort zone had picked up steam, and he was ready to blow the roof off the place. Until he actually got to the studio. That was when his producer, Death Cab for Cutie guitarist Chris Walla, told him not to go so crazy. “I was so afraid of someone saying, ‘This sounds like his other
records,’ ” Fitzsimmons says, recalling how Walla connected with his spare demos rather than the rock record he had planned. “And once I let go of that, it was great.” Released in February, “Lions” is pretty much pure Fitzsimmons, though Walla’s warm production seeps in and a bit of instrumental variety crops up. There’s “From You,” an indie-rock waltz, and “Fortune,” a straight-ahead rocker brought back from the precipice of pop by Fitzsimmons’ steady voice. The livelier arrangements led Fitzsimmons to bring a full band along for his current tour (which hits the Howard Theatre on Sunday). “I switch it very, very often, because I think I need to,” the Illinois-based Fitzsimmons says of his alternating between solo and full-
“There’s no reason for having variety for its own sake. That’s chasing sales, or TV placement … You use variety when it’s called for. ”
band shows. “I benefit from that, personally. I get bored, honestly, if I’m constantly doing the same songs in the same way.” In the studio, though, Fitzsimmons came to the realization that he’s better off just being himself. During the “Lions” sessions, he was inspired by the work of one of his musical heroes, Mark Kozelek. The Sun Kil Moon and Red House Painters singer’s musical breadth is … well, there isn’t much. But Kozelek keeps putting out albums, and they’re often well-loved, and he does what works for him, Fitzsimmons thought. So, he figured, why the hell not do the same? “There’s no reason for having variety for its own sake,” Fitzsimmons says. “That’s chasing something. That’s chasing sales, or TV placement, or radio plays, or something like that. You use variety when it’s called for. And when it’s not, s---. Just sound like you.” JON WOLPER (FOR E XPRESS)

A Filmfest Cliffhanger Starting to See a Theme Here? While most of the more than 80 films to be shown at Filmfest DC this year aren’t linked to one another, there are four themed tracks that highlight certain categories. Let’s have a look:
Could it be the end for D.C.’s celebration of international movies?
Filmfest DC is facing its final reel. One of the area’s longest-running festivals, Filmfest is under such financial pressure that — barring an angel with a $250,000 check — D.C. will have to say goodbye. “It’s going to take everything we have to put it on this year,” says Tony Gittens, director of the international film festival, now in its 28th year. “If there is a way to do this the following year, we’ll do it, but it’s going to take someone stepping up.” Though Gittens and his team are facing the end, consistency, he says, is still key. “We always want to present an outstanding event,” Gittens says. “We’re celebrating film and we’re very happy we’ve been able to continue doing that for 28 years. But the films speak for themselves. We bring in good films every year.” In a city that has become a hub for film festivals (sometimes it seems there’s one every week), Filmfest is one of D.C.’s largest and the only one that focuses on the best in current international film. “There are hundreds of films made around the world every year and the directors of those films are very well-known at home, but not necessarily in the U.S.,” Gittens says. “One of the benefits of having a festival such as ours is we can show people there are great films all over the world.” Even if the festival itself fades
In “Transcendence,” out Friday, Johnny Depp uploads his consciousness into a computer, whereupon he must immediately enter his Apple ID. Which turns out to be IAmEvil1 (password: going2ki11u). It’s one more evil soldier in the electronic army that hates humanity.
“FEAST YOUR EYES,” where the films are all about food, like “Love and Lemons” from Sweden, about a chef who gets fired and dumped on the same day and then sets out to start her own restaurant.
“It’s going to take everything we have to put [the festival] on this year.” — TONY GIT TENS, FILMFEST DIRECTOR, ON THE FINANCIAL PRESSURES THAT COULD SPELL THE END FOR THE FESTIVAL

1 WOPR This military computer (full name: War Operation Plan Response) nearly enabled Matthew Broderick to nearly start WWIII in 1983’s “WarGames.” It’s like Oregon Trail, only it always ends with the message “you have died of thermonuclear war.”
SWEDISH FILM INSTITUTE
“THE LIGHTER SIDE,” featuring comedies including “The Bachelor Weekend,” an Irish film about a low-key bachelor party that’s taken over by the bride’s debauched brother.
“JUSTICE MATTERS,” which examines the impact film can have in the quest for human rights. Featured in this group is an American film, “Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine,” about a Christian gospel choir that puts on a musical about Dr. King in the West Bank.
to black, Filmfest will always be a cultural touchstone when it comes to the arts in D.C., proof that Washington can be an ideal location to celebrate international film. “When we started, this was before the Internet, before Netflix, before so many of the ways people can watch films today,” Gittens says. “I think our contri-
bution to the city has been that we have, without all of those conveniences, brought great, great films to Washington, and have been doing it for 30 years.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

‘Alan Partridge’: No one does cringe humor like the
Brits. That’s the charm of this film, which brings U.K. national treasure Alan Partridge (Steve Coogan, left) to the big screen.

When his station goes corporate, a laid-off buddy takes hostages and hunkers down in the building. It’s like “Die Hard” with a surprisingly likable idiot in the Bruce Willis role.

Weekend Pass | entertainment ‘Disappearing’ The War on Drugs’ chief songwriter, Adam Granduciel, has a home studio in Philadelphia full of vintage gear.
“Disappearing” began as a “freefloating synth jam” until friend Michael Johnson added a bass part using an Arp 2600 synthesizer that gave it more structure. The pair rebuilt the song from there, with Granduciel recording the guitars in his bedroom. “It sounds like water,” he says.
‘Eyes to the Wind’ “I wrote that song in four minutes in my kitchen,” Granduciel says of this folksy slow-burner. Yet it took him months to finish it. “I was really attached to that song,” he says. Lyrically nostalgic, musically anthemic, the song was his attempt at being “open and honest.”
‘The Haunting Idle’
Runnin’ Down a ‘Dream’ The War on Drugs’ leader dissects his boldest album yet Music If Adam Granduciel, the leader of The War on Drugs, wakes up at home in the middle of the night with an idea for a song, he doesn’t have to go far to put the idea to tape. Much of the b a n d ’s t h i r d album, March’s “Lost in t he Dream,” took shape in Granduciel’s Philadelphia home, where he has a makeshift studio. And even though the singer-guitarist spent eight months bouncing between professional studios while perfecting the album, home seemed to be the most fruitful — he even wrote one song in his kitchen and record-
ed another in his bedroom. With a bevy of supporting players (culled from his touring band and Philadelphia’s indie-rock scene) adding to the mix, the album builds on the folksy, synth-rock of The War on Drugs’ breakout record, 2011’s “Slave Ambient.” It’s bigger, bolder and more assured. “I’m in my finest hour,” Granduciel sings on “An Ocean in Between the Waves.” If that comes off like a boast, it wasn’t intentional. The line “was supposed to [be] more self-deprecating,” he says. Perhaps he should reconsider: “Lost in the Dream” is easily The War on Drugs’ best work. With that in mind, Granduciel took Express on a tour of the album before Friday’s 9:30 Club show.
‘Under the Pressure’ Clocking in at eight minutes and 51 seconds, the opener is the album’s longest track — and it could have been
even longer. “When I initially started it in my home studio, I was playing those two chords on the guitar and it sounded so sweet,” he says. “I put 13 minutes on the drum machine so I had enough room to jam. I was probably high and wanted to jam out on these two chords because I hadn’t written any words yet.”
Rhodes piano part, “Suffering” is one of the album’s darker songs. “I actually recorded that by myself at home one night in 2012,” Granduciel says. “At the time, I wasn’t feeling that s----y at all. I was just living fast, not thinking about much.” When the word “suffering” came out during a scratch recording, he “just knew the sound of a song called ‘Suffering’ was going to be this.”
LINER NO T E S
‘Red Eyes’ The synth-y “Red Eyes” serves as a bridge between “Slave Ambient” and “Lost in the Dream” — it wouldn’t be out of place on the earlier album, but, like most of the new record, it just sounds bigger. Granduciel credits the increased musicianship of the album’s players for the sonic upgrade. “Any idea I had, musically, could be achieved between myself and everybody else,” he says, “and it just made things easy.”
‘Suffering’ With its slow pace and an ominous
‘An Ocean in Between The Waves’ After working on this track for a year, Granduciel had an epiphany: “It was a pile of garbage,” he says. With five days left before he had to hand in the finished record, Granduciel and the band reworked the song, cutting a noisy outro and tweaking the lyrics and music significantly. “Everyone thought I was crazy for wanting to rerecord,” he says. “But it ended up being one of a lot of people’s favorites.”
Granduciel says this short, atmospheric instrumental “sounded like the mood of the album,” yet still stood out on its own. “That’s one take of me playing in the studio through seven amplifiers, so each amplifier had a different sound going through it.”
‘Burning’ With bright synths, organ and acoustic guitars, “Burning” sounds a lot like Dire Straits, or Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark.” It’s a nice counter to some of the darker moods on the record. “I like making uplifting music,” he says. “I like having mellow songs and then total jam rockers.”
‘Lost in the Dream’ On the title track, Granduciel plays a vintage Fun Machine, which is basically an organ that’s also a drum machine. “I think they market it to people to put in their living room and have fun with it,” he says. “That was a simple song I recorded at home and built up over time.”
‘In Reverse’ “In Reverse” begins with an ambient passage that could be an extension of “The Haunting Idle.” “I work on stuff all together, so maybe I was playing the intro of ‘In Reverse’ and that informed this other thing I was recording,” he says. “I like that little things echo each other. It makes it a whole piece.” RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS) 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW; Fri., 8 p.m., sold out; 202-265-0930, 930.com. (U Street)

Pointless Theatre’s production of “Sleeping Beauty: A Puppet Ballet” stars, from left, Robert Manzo, David Lloyd Olson, Rachel Menyuk, Ruth Watkins, Madeline Key, Devin Mahoney, Scott Whalen and a bunch of ballet-dancing puppets.
If Pinocchio Did Ballet Pointless Theatre brings puppets to ballet-dancing life for ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Stage Gw yneth Paltrow would be a dream to work with compared to the actress who stars as Princess Aurora in Pointless Theatre’s take on the “Sleeping Beauty” fairy tale. She never speaks a word to the rest of the cast, and requires three people by her side at all times for support. That’s because Aurora isn’t an actress — she’s a puppet. A whimsical version of Tchaikovsky’s 1890 ballet, “Sleeping Beauty: A Puppet Ballet” stars eight actors and an assortment of dancing puppets, three of which require the aid of three human operators to move around onstage. Although Pointless Theatre almost always uses puppets in its shows, making them dance was no easy feat. “It was a huge challenge get-
ting the puppets to spin,” says Matt Reckeweg, co-creator/co-director of the ballet, now playing at Flashpoint’s Mead Theatre Lab. “It was also difficult to build puppets that bend like ballerinas,” adds Patti Kalil, the show’s other creator/director. True to ballet form, there’s no talking, and the human cast members also dance — in full ballet getup — while controlling the puppets. For this show, first staged at Capital Fringe in 2010, the troupe brought in a special puppet choreographer to adapt aspects of Marius Petipa’s original 19th-century choreography. The puppet choreographer also gave the troupe advice on designing puppets able to execute the necessary dance moves. They needed to have swiveling hips so they could lift their legs up in all directions and their feet needed to be able to dance both on and off their toes. Pointless Theatre company members always collaborate on the design and construction of their
puppets. In fact, the group was brought together by their love of puppetry in 2009, while still students at the University of Maryland, College Park. The company’s members are variously puppeteers, actors, artists, musicians, writers and dancers. The tight-knit performers have learned to trust each other over the years. During “Sleeping Beauty,” Pointless often has eight people scrunched on the small stage, so they kind of have to. “There’s a certain precision to how we perform,” Reckeweg says. “The discipline and focus we have to have on stage is similar to ballet. Part of the fun is figuring out who goes where in order to avoid possible collisions.” At least Aurora won’t be able to complain if anything goes awry — which is more than we can say for most prima donnas.

“These are adult Tater Tots,” executive chef Michael Harr says of the dinnertime-only spud snack ($7) he makes by adding roasted garlic and Gruyere to baked-then-shredded Yukon Gold potatoes. “I use a lot of cheese, so they’re nice and gooey when you bite into them,” he says. The mixture is formed into marshmallow-sized cubes that are deep-fried. The tots are served with Heinz ketchup pepped up with coriander, garlic and chilies. They’ve become one of the biggest sellers at the restaurant. “I can’t take them off my menu,” Harr says. “People would stab me in the eyeballs.”
Forgo the freezer aisle for these freshly fried taters
“We’re taking machine-made food and reverse engineering it,” Bailey says. “This is real food made by real people using their hands.”
Day-old bread can be reborn as bread pudding, panzanella and croutons. But what is there to do with potato scraps left over from making french fries? When Ore-Ida co-owners and brothers F. Nephi and Golden Grigg found themselves in this spud-nundrum in 1953, they created the Tater Tot. Ever since, the tubular treats have become freezer-aisle favorites. “They’re pure comfort,” says Kyle Bailey, the executive chef at Arsenal, where he serves three fancy takes on the classic. “They’re one of those perfect foods.” Especially when they’re made from scratch and gussied up with gourmet toppings, like the tots found at these local restaurants.

Sure, you could order a batch of the standout house-made tots seasoned simply with salt and white pepper, delivered with good old Heinz ketchup ($6). However, you should consider getting your spuds smothered. There are three topping options: melted white cheddar with Tasso ham gravy; housemade Buffalo wing sauce with crumbled blue cheese; or General Tso’s-inspired sauce spangled with scallion rounds ($8.50 each).
ARSENAL 300 Tingey St. SE; 202-524-4862, bluejacketdc.com. (Navy Yard)
Arsenal has three varieties of smothered tots, including ones with Buffalo sauce.
Executive chef Thomas Schoborg has fond memories of Tater Tots from his years in elementary school. “I looked forward to the days they were served,” he says. His handmade Parmesan-accented tots ($9.35) are labor-intensive, requiring almost a day to make. Russet potatoes are parboiled, cooled, peeled, grated and mixed with cheese and chives. The shredded spuds are formed into the traditional pluglike shape by being packed into a prescription pill bottle with the bottom cut off. “It’s a weird trick, but it works,” Schoborg says. “We tried cookie cutters, but the potatoes stuck.” The tots are coated in panko breadcrumbs, frozen overnight and fried to order. They arrive dusted with Parme-

Growing up in England, executive chef Mark Timms never had a chance to try Ore-Ida’s famous invention. That changed after he moved to the States and read this post on a friend’s Facebook wall: “Tater Tots are the bomb.” “I thought that was funny, so I had to try them,” Timms says. “She was right.” Now he offers gourmet tots ($12) accented with nutmeg and topped with garlicky chive aioli and your choice of bacon and/or sauteed mushrooms. They’re served on a mound of mac and cheese made with blue cheese, creamy Boursin and cheddar. “Some foods you eat slowly; some you want to inhale without breathing,” Timms says. “These fall into the latter category.”

‘After my generation, a lot of GreekAmericans won’t know how to do this.’ A Silver Spring woman explores her Greek heritage through sweets When she was growing up in Rockville, Katerina Georgallas, a Greek-American, wasn’t a fan of baklava. (For shame!) Her family’s version of the classic dessert with layers of phyllo and nuts soaked in syrup always seemed too sweet to enjoy, she says. But a job layoff in 2009 and a desire to start her own food business gave the Silver Spring resident the chance to revisit baklava and ask: What if the syrup could be lightened? Georgallas, who has an interior design degree, began experimenting with different types of honey and added rosemary and lavender plucked from her parents’ garden. Two years later, she launched Baklava Couture and began selling her pastries at local FreshFarm Markets. Today, Georgallas offers two f lavors of bak lava — walnut cinnamon and pistachio — plus an additional flavor that rotates weekly. The dairy- and egg-free treats are made with organic

vegan phyllo dough and honey sourced from Maryland. She also expanded her offerings to include Greek cookies and cakes based on family recipes, such as kourabiedes (powered sugar cookies), karidopita (a syrup-soaked semolina cake) and koulourakia (tender butter cookies). For Greek Orthodox Easter on Sunday, Georgallas is debuting a new recipe: tsoureki, a briochestyle bread traditionally displayed with a crimson-dyed egg on top. (Georgallas uses yellow onion skins to achieve the egg’s color naturally.) “After my generation, a lot of Greek-Americans won’t know how to do this,” Georgallas says. “If you don’t have an aunt or grandma who makes them, it’s not something that’s readily available.”
Baklava Couture’s karidopita cake is made from a family recipe that’s four generations old.

that, of all things. My look is simple, which is one of the best things I have to offer as far as a costume goes. It doesn’t take a lot of elements to dress up like Andrew W.K.
Last year’s inaugural Awesome Con drew 7,000 superfans to Washington.
Amara Tiebout and Lindsay Smyers, both 24, share a house in Northeast, where their bookshelves sag with comic books and their walls are peppered with posters. For months, the two friends have been planning their Awesome Con cosplay (short for costume play), dressing up as The Will and The Stalk from the popular “Saga” comic. Bounty hunters (and former lovers) in a galaxy at war, the pair are secondary characters in “Saga,” so Smyers and Tiebout hope there won’t be legions of doppelgangers at the con. C.C.
How should we prepare for a killer Awesome Con party?
ON THE SPOT Andrew W.K. HARD-PARTYING ROCKER, MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER If Andrew W.K. takes anything seriously, it’s partying. The stringy-haired rocker has made the pursuit of a good time into a kind of fist-pumping performance art with raucous anthems like “We Want Fun” and “Party Hard.” Want to learn to party like the pro? After headlining Saturday night’s Awesome Con-cert at the Black Cat, W.K. will drop some wisdom during a motivational seminar at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Are you going to dress up for Awesome Con?
Don’t miss the big draws:
sessions all weekend). 4. Stroll through the more than 200 booths in the Artist Alley and pick up prints, books, novelty items or geeky clothes and jewelry. 5. Sign up for a professional photo-op with one of the celebrities on-site, like Billie Piper, Cary Elwes or Sean Astin. “I usually get one [photo] per convention, whichever guest I’m most excited about,” says Ben Penrod, Awesome Con’s co-founder. “Then I’ll make that my profile pic on Facebook and all my friends get jealous.”
1. Get in costume and help set a new Guinness World Record for “most people dressed as comic book characters” at the Capitol’s reflecting pool at noon on Friday. China’s World Joyland holds the current record at 1,530 people. 2. Watch artists duke it out onstage at 2:15 p.m. Sunday for Super Art Fight, a live drawing competition with prowrestling-style characters and drama. 3. If you’re in the market for a gold ring that doesn’t channel Sauron, try your luck at Sci-Fi Speed Dating (there are
No. I’ll probably just dress up as me. You have a pretty distinct look already. Do people ever dress up like you?
At conventions, in fact, I’ve seen it quite a bit. At a con called Dragon Con [in Atlanta], a group of about 20 people dressed up as me, and I saw pictures of it. It means a lot to me that people would choose
Comic cons attract the best of the geek world, but geeks have gotten a bad rap when it comes to party skills. Are you reclaiming partying for the geeks?
For me, [a geek] is just someone who’s really passionate about something they like. You can call it fandom, or superfandom. I’m a fan of being alive, and I’m a master fan of partying — I’m obsessed with it. I understand the feeling of wanting to immerse yourself completely in the thing you love. There are some people who feel uncomfortable getting that into something, and they make fun of people who do. They’re just afraid to believe in something. In my opinion, if something makes you that happy, you can’t go too far with it. C.C. Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW; Sat., 9 p.m., $20; 202-667-4490, blackcatdc.com. (U Street)
Body paint only comes in tiny tubes, and Tiebout needs to cover her whole torso in white to imitate The Stalk’s ghostly spider body. Her more affordable solution? Washable, nontoxic craft paint.
HOW TO AWESOME CON
Amara Tiebout as The Stalk
Ever wanted to see Darth Vader flirt with Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Looking for the perfect place to debut your handmade TARDIS replica? Then you probably already know about Awesome Con, D.C.’s largest gathering of dorks, geeks, gamers, cosplayers and, most likely, some confused-looking folks who just came for “The Walking Dead” panel. It’s an event that brings the fantasy worlds of comic books, video games and more to life through the eyes of the superfan. Last year’s inaugural Awesome Con drew 7,000 attendees, and organizers expect to quadruple that head count this weekend. Get an early start and make the most of your convention experience with our guide to the geekery. CHRISTINA CAUTERUCCI (FOR E XPRESS)
1. Increase your life expectancy with tips from a local expert on the undead at Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse 101 at 11 a.m. Saturday. 2. Meet the humans behind cartoon characters at Q&A sessions with voice actors. Penrod recommends seeing Phil LaMarr of “MADtv,” “Futurama” and “Justice League,” who will speak at 6 p.m. Saturday and at noon Sunday. 3. Play a card or board game with the
founders of College Park, Md.’s Looney Labs, the producer of the ever-popular Fluxx card game, in the tabletop gaming room at 3 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. “There might even be some surprise test runs of games that haven’t been released yet,” Penrod says. 4. Take a drawing workshop with comic book artists like Greg LaRocque (“The Avengers”) or Alitha Martinez (“BatGirl”). 5. Make your costume even grosser at a special effects makeup class at 5:15 p.m. Saturday that promises how-tos on “zombies, cuts, bruises, gore and more.”
To cut down on costs (the women spent less than $100 on both costumes), Smyers and Tiebout combed thrift stores and friends’ closets first. When they couldn’t find the perfect black skirt for Tiebout, they bought a few yards of taffeta and tulle from Jo-Ann Fabric. Smyers’ sewing machine couldn’t handle the thick fabric, so they sewed it by hand.
One of the hardest parts of making a character costume, Smyers says, is finding the right colors. “These characters exist in a universe that has so many things we don’t have,” she says. The red of Smyers’ cape is an old bedsheet, and she glued gold piping to a pair of khakis with Mod Podge.

Steer clear of the crowds with these under-the-radar events: Billie Piper
Both women normally wear glasses, unlike their characters, and neither has contact lenses. “We’ll just be a little fuzzy at the con,” Tiebout says.

BILL O’LEARY (THE WASHINGTON POST)
Assuming this will be in the tradition of all the great conventions, it’s all about going all-out. You have this limited amount of time, at a festival, to make the most of a truly overwhelming event. I don’t even think it’s humanly possible to take it all in. I’d almost train in advance: Build up your endurance, get plenty of fluids.
While you’re there:
1. Most of Awesome Con’s events are held Friday through Sunday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. It’s a big venue with lots of ground to cover, so make sure your costume’s shoes don’t make your feet bleed. 2. Whether or not you rolled deep to the con, don’t miss this chance to connect IRL with your online friends from Twitter and Reddit at meetups on all three days. 3. Bring the kids if you have ’em: Children 10 and younger get in free, and there’s loads of special programming
(including a Star Wars-themed Nerf gun game) to keep them busy. 4. If you drive, buy parking passes in advance on the Awesome Con website. C.C.

Everyman Theatre, 315 W. Fayette St., Baltimore; 410-752-2208, everymantheatre.org. Camp David: In one of the best scenes of “Camp David,” the alternately talky and affecting story about the 13 grueling days of negotiations that led to the Middle East’s most durable peace treaty, President Jimmy Carter takes Egypt’s Anwar Sadat and Israel’s Menachem Begin on a class trip of sorts to Gettysburg, Pa. And as Begin starts to speak the words of the Gettysburg Address and Carter joins in, and then Sadat, you can be excused for choking up at the kumbaya affirmativeness of the interlude. Lawrence Wright’s play,
receiving its world premiere under Molly Smith’s direction, is engrossing at these moments, because it’s not just reciting history or framing the debate; it’s also showing us how to understand why intractable adversaries might have lowered their guards, gazed at their bitterest enemy and begun to conceive of a way forward. It’s also the sort of illuminating scene the play needs more of. The actors form an impressive roll call: Richard Thomas as Carter, Ron Rifkin plays Begin, Egyptian film star Khaled Nabawy portrays Sadat and Hallie Foote is Carter’s first lady, Rosalynn. You sense the actors’ struggle to project something more complex about these world-class newsmakers than the one admirable attribute propelling the evening, namely their desire to bring tranquil security to the Holy Land.

NBA’s Award Season GETTY IMAGES PHOTOS
The NBA playoffs start this weekend, but the most important games of the year won’t affect who wins this season’s awards. Even though the winners won’t be announced until next month, the voting is in. Here’s who we predict will bring home the hardware — and who deserves to. JEFFREY TOMIK (E XPRESS)
MVP Who will win: Kevin Durant The Thunder forward put together one of the most impressive scoring seasons in NBA history. For 41 consecutive games, he had at least 25 points. Only Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain had longer such streaks. Who should win: LeBron James He’s still the best player in the league and his out-of-this-world abilities are taken for granted. He shot a career-best 56.7 percent from the floor — fourthbest in the league in a category dominated by post players who only dunk.
Defensive Player of the Year Who will win: Joakim Noah The Bulls have held their opponents to an NBA-low 91.8 points per game, and Noah has anchored that defensive unit. The center has averaged a career-high 7.7 defensive rebounds a game and will likely also finish in the top five in MVP voting.
Sixth Man of the Year Who will win: Taj Gibson Noah gets most of the credit on the Bulls frontline and Carlos Boozer is the starting power forward, but Chicago turns to Gibson down the stretch of games. He’s averaged 13.1 points and played in every game this year.
Who should win: Noah He’s worthy of the award, but perimeter defenders like Paul George too often get overlooked despite a much tougher nightly defensive assignment.
Who should win: Manu Ginobili The Spurs don’t have a single player averaging 30 minutes a game. And coach Gregg Popovich’s innovative rotation has limited Ginobili’s playing time, but he’s still managed to average 12.4 points and 4.3 assists a game.
Coach of the Year
Most Improved Player
Rookie of the Year
Who will win: Tom Thibodeau Chicago’s leading scorer has been D.J. Augustin — who’s probably the 30th best point guard in the league — and the Bulls are a top four team in the East. Despite Derrick Rose’s injury and trading away Luol Deng, they keep winning. That’s impressive.
Who will win: Goran Dragic The Suns guard emerged as an MVP candidate after nearly leading Phoenix to the playoffs. He’s upped his scoring average from 14.7 in 201213 to 20.3 this season, while shooting over 50 percent from the field and over 40 percent from 3-point range.
Who will win: Michael Carter-Williams The 76ers point guard led all rookies in points, assists, rebounds and steals. It’s been one of the worst rookie classes in NBA history, but at least Carter-Williams has the stats to back up this award.
Who should win: Gregg Popovich He should probably win every year. The Spurs own the best record and no one gets more out of his players than Popovich. Marco Belinelli, Patty Mills and Boris Diaw have played great for him.
Who should win: Dragic He’s made an improbable jump to the elite level and deserves the award. Others who have a case are Anthony Davis, Lance Stephenson, Gerald Green and DeMar DeRozan.
Who should win: Victor Oladipo Let’s keep in mind Carter-Williams put up those numbers on a 76ers team that tied an NBA record with 26 straight losses. The Magic weren’t much better, but Oladipo played well on a competitive team.

Broncos fans may want to move on from Denver’s Super Bowl debacle. Not Peyton Manning. He’s holding on to the heartache to stoke his competitive fire. In his first public comments since the highest-scoring team in NFL history was destroyed by Seattle from the opening snap two months ago, Manning said the Broncos’ 43-8 loss will serve as motivation in 2014. “I don’t really have a word for it. Obviously it was disappointing and we’ll use that to fuel us this offseason and hopefully it’ll make us better,” Manning said Wednesday prior to giving the keynote address at the Boy Scouts of America Sports Breakfast in Denver.
Jets Land Johnson The New York Jets and former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson have agreed to terms on a deal. Johnson met with the Jets all day Tuesday and stayed in town to watch the Knicks-Nets game in Brooklyn on Tuesday night before signing Wednesday. The former 2,000-yard rusher will team with Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to give coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg a versatile and deep backfield. (AP)
“I know the front office has addressed some offseason needs in free agency and of course the draft’s coming up and now it’s up to the players to put in the hard work in the weight room, the ﬁlm room and on the practice ﬁeld to try to be
a better team this year and that all starts Monday.” The Broncos gather next week for the ofﬁcial start of offseason workouts with a roster that looks a lot different from the one that lost by ﬁve TDs to the Seahawks. Gone are Champ Bailey, Eric Decker, Wesley Woodyard, Zane Beadles, Knowshon Moreno and Chris Kuper, whose departures cleared cap space for the additions of DeMarcus Ware, T.J. Ward, Aqib Talib and Emmanuel Sanders. Manning said his brother Eli, quarterback of the New York Giants, is excited about former Cowboys pass-rusher Ware leaving the Giants’ division. “[Ware] can no longer hit [Eli]. And I’m glad he’s on my team.” Although Manning and the Broncos will view their loss to Seattle as a scar, much like they did their defeat to Baltimore in the playoffs a year earlier, Manning agreed the gathering will allow the Broncos to begin looking ahead. ARNIE STAPLETON (AP)
Atlanta Gains MLS Club: Atlanta has become the newest city in Major League Soccer with an expansion franchise that will begin play in 2017. The team announced Wednesday it will be owned by Arthur Blank, who also owns the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons. The MLS team will play in a new $1 billion retractable roof stadium to be built next to the Georgia Dome. While primarily designed for the Falcons, Blank, left, was eager to line up an additional revenue source for the new facility. (AP)

A Twerk a Day … A severe allergic reaction sends Miley Cyrus to the hospital 23
“Popular music was this abstraction — an abstraction that I was relating to immensely but was ultimately far away.” — K ELEL A , DESCRIBING HER STRUGGLE IN SCHOOL TO CONNECT HER SOULFUL STYLE
WITH THE POP HER “WHITE GUY FRIENDS” WERE INTERESTED IN
Orange is not the new black. “Orphan Black” is the new black. That’s the supersuspenseful BBC America series about streetwise, raw-boned Sarah and her clones. Some are nice. Some are evil. Some are dying. One is a suburban mom who used to have a drug habit. All of them act rashly. No one seems to know why they exist. But everyone is out to get them. I suggest watching with a fan because things can get confusing. My Blackaholic daughter was my guide By Marc when I previewed the Silver second season premiere (which airs at 9 p.m. Saturday). Me: Is that guy evil? Daughter: Yes. Me: I thought so because of the music and also his name is clearly evil: Dr. Aldous Leekie. What about that guy Paul? Daughter: He may not be evil. Me: Is that Sarah disguised as the scientist clone Cosima or is it actually Cosima? Daughter: I’m not sure. Even if you’re not sure who’s who, you can’t help but marvel at actress Tatiana Maslany, above. Not only does she make every clone seem really different, but in this week’s episode, she wrestles herself to the ground and punches herself in the face. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Today’s Crooner Kelela and her brand of futuristic R&B have at least one famous fan: Beyonce.
D.C.-born Kelela wants to show the world modern R&B Music Kelela — a petite, dreadlocked vocalist born in Washington and based in Los Angeles — has got soul. Her futuristic love songs feel like high-def screen grabs of latent passion, micro-tonal desire
and other in-the-middle emotions that the English language can’t quite articulate. “The approach is that you give it to them, but you don’t give it to them all the way,” the 30-year-old says. “I don’t want to scratch so that you don’t itch anymore.” That tense, teasing energy pulses through “Cut 4 Me,” the stunning debut mix tape that Kelela released last October. It became one
ERICH SCHLEGEL (THE WASHINGTON POST)
The New ‘Black’
of the most acclaimed R&B recordings of 2013, winning praise from fans, critics and Beyonce. Its draw was Kelela’s impeccable phrasing — the result of a lifetime of deep listening. She doesn’t remember having to search for that voice — but she struggled tremendously to ﬁnd a place for it. As a ﬁrst-generation EthiopianAmerican (born at George Washington University Hospital) and an only child, she wandered from Julie Andrews singalongs to a spot in the school orchestra, to an adolescence mesmerized by R&B, to countless jazz open-mikes, to gigs at shabby rock venues, always feeling as if she didn’t belong. “I was in this really dark place of not being able to express myself,” she says. “But all that resistance informed how I approach the music I’m making now.” Throughout her 20s, she would pinball around town, finding encouragement in surprising places. Stints at Montgomery College in Rockville and American University offered her the chance to sing jazz standards at HR-57 and Cafe Nema. Things really took off when Kelela learned how to record on her laptop. The creative privacy gave her something she always craved: the freedom to make mistakes. “That’s literally when I started
writing my own music,” she says. “Being able to pursue it and [mess] up? I couldn’t get it with other people like that.” Now she was more determined to get it than ever. In late 2010, she migrated to Los Angeles and eventually made a fortuitous a-friend-of-a-friendof-a-friend-of-a-friend connection with a team of producers behind the innovative dance label Fade to Mind and its sibling London imprint, Night Slugs. As with “Cut 4 Me,” Kelela says the recording sessions for her new album have taken place in Los Angeles, London and across the digital plane. Fittingly, the music video for DJ Bok Bok and Kelela’s squeaky new single, “Melba’s Call,” features an empty studio with the singer Skyped in on a video screen. Meantime, Kelela says she’s fending off record labels until the album is complete. “I’m just trying to make it good,” she says. After so many years of placelessness, she has found her place. “I’m really grateful to be doing this here on earth,” she says. “And I’m so honored that anyone would think it’s tight.” CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST)

All in the Family: Paul Walker’s brothers are stepping in to help finish filming on “Fast & Furious 7,” the film
Walker, left, was making when he died in November. Caleb and Cody Walker have been enlisted to complete their brother’s action scenes and “fill in small gaps left in production,” Universal Pictures said in a statement Tuesday on the film’s Facebook page. The release of “Fast & Furious 7” was delayed to April 2015 following Walker’s death. (AP)

“That I & most Americans have no idea whether our taxes are accurate tells us something.” — @RUMSFELDOFFICE, the
Twitter account of former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, sharing Tuesday a letter he wrote to the IRS regarding the complexity of ﬁling taxes. Rumsfeld argues the forms are too complicated, forcing people to hire expensive accountants to complete the process for fear of being audited.
“Around the time other journalists had cribbed the language, LaForge realized he had created a monster.”
“That looks like a candidate for the Delicious/Disgusting Hall of Fame.”
— CHARLIE WARZEL AT BUZZFEED.COM
— COMMENTER LAWRENCEPELO AT SALON.COM chimes in on Domino’s
explains the history behind what may be Twitter’s most infamous phrase: “Retweets do not equal endorsements.” Patrick LaForge, an editor at The New York Times, appears to be the ﬁrst person to have used it. “I was an early Twitter adopter, and this phrase was in my bio starting in 2007 or 2008,” LaForge says. “It makes me cringe now.”
latest: a pizza made with fried chicken instead of dough, aka the “Specialty Chicken.” The chain unveiled its latest creation Monday, calling it one of the most “creative, innovative menu items we have ever had.” We’re not so sure if this passes as pizza. What do you think? Tweet us @WaPoExpress.
“Joe Biden’s first Instagram is the Joe Bidenest of Instagrams.” — @BENNYJOHNSON sums up the latest account we all need to follow. Vice President Joe Biden (@vp) joined Instagram on Wednesday, and his ﬁrst post was a closeup shot of his beloved aviator sunglasses. It seems the vice president is on a real social media kick, having reactivated his Twitter account (@JoeBiden) April 7.
“Look upon your taste in beer, America, and despair.” — DYLAN MATTHEWS AT VOX.COM reacts
