A Snip, a Cut and an ‘Oops’ An England man got more than he bargained for when he was accidentally given a vasectomy after checking into the hospital for a minor urological procedure, according to England’s Daily Telegraph. The newspaper reports the Royal Liverpool Hospital “apologized unreservedly” to the man, and that he could be due nearly $200,000 if the operation isn’t successfully reversed. (EXPRESS) GHOSTBUSTERS

They Just Want a Quiet Home A pair of ospreys has quieted a fire alarm in one New Jersey shore town. The raptors have built a nest inside the fire siren at Spring Lake.

So the siren has been turned off for the spring and summer, while firefighters and paramedics rely on pagers and cellphones to alert them of emergencies. (AP)

Handing out dismal grades, the Nation’s Report Card says America’s high school seniors lack critical math and reading skills for an increasingly competitive global economy. About one-quarter are performing proﬁciently or better in math and 4 in 10 in reading. And they’re not improving, the report says.

Scores on the 2013 exam in both subjects were little changed from 2009, when the National Assessment of Educational Progress was last given to 12th-graders. The new results, released Wednesday, come from a sample of 92,000 public and private school students. One possible explanation is that lower-performing students who in the past would have dropped out of school are now remaining in the sampling of students who take the exam. KIMBERLY HEFLING (AP)
Primary Winners, Losers The first major primaries of the 2014 calendar are in the books. While there were few surprises in the three states that held primaries Tuesday — North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana — there were, as always, winners and losers. Here are our picks.

12th-Graders Fail to Show Progress in Math, Reading
National Republican Senatorial Committee: After two straight cycles in which the party committee watched as GOP voters chose unelectable nominees for Senate, the first big vote of the 2014 primary season produced the perfect result for the committee. North Carolina state House Speaker Thom Tillis — one of the GOP’s best hopes for winning back a Senate seat — easily won, with no runoff needed. Incumbents: Every House incumbent who sought renomination in all three states won, including Walter Jones Jr., R-N.C., and David Joyce, R-Ohio, who
LOSERS beat back serious primary challenges, evidence that for all of the dislike aimed at people serving in Congress, it’s still very hard to beat a sitting member. American Crossroads: The super PAC spent more than $1.6 million on ads in the final weeks of the Tillis campaign. And it worked. Expect more Crossroads spending in future contested primaries. John Boehner: It doesn’t solve all — or really any — of his problems with his own party back in D.C., but it had to feel good for Boehner to win a primary fight convincingly Tuesday.

Kay Hagan: Look, the North Carolina senator is running a serious campaign, and most polling puts her tied or slightly ahead of Tillis. But what happened Tuesday was a worst-case scenario for her. Tillis, the strongest Republican nominee in a general election, won. That means he and national Republicans can spend the next six months spending all of their money and time hitting Hagan. Rand Paul: The Kentucky senator spent Monday in North Carolina touting the candidacy of Greg Brannon, who
finished a distant second to Tillis. But worth noting: North Carolina is moving its presidential primary up in 2016, and by campaigning for the libertarian favorite, Paul affirmed to those sorts of voters that he is their guy come the presidential vote. Voter turnout: Just 16 percent of registered voters in North Carolina turned out to vote Tuesday. Ditto Ohio. Indiana turnout also was said to be very light. People love to complain about how bad government is. And yet, when given the chance, they don’t turn out to vote.

Syria Rebels Leave Homs Evacuation of city a huge boost to Assad regime in civil war
Make a Difference with a Rewarding New Career as a School Counselor
Carrying their rif les and small bags of belongings, hundreds of exhausted Syrian rebels withdrew Wednesday from their last remaining strongholds in the heart of Homs, surrendering to President Bashar Assad a bloodstained city that was once the center of the revolt against him. For Assad, it is a powerful victory ahead of presidential elections. For the rebels, the dramatic exit after two years of enduring grueling assaults and siege captures their sense of abandonment amid world reluctance to help shift the balance of power on the ground. “We kept urging the international community to lift the siege but there was no response,” said opposition activist Abu Yassin al-Homsi. The exit of some 1,200 ﬁghters and civilians marks a de-facto end of the rebellion in the war

Putin Hints at Easing Tensions Russian leader says he’s removing troops from Ukraine border Russian President Vladimir Putin appeared to take conciliatory steps Wednesday to ease tensions in Ukraine, calling for pro-Russian separatists in the eastern part of the country to postpone a planned Sunday referendum on autonomy in Ukraine’s restive east and saying that a May 25 presidential election whose legitimacy the Kremlin had previously questioned was now “a movement in the right direction.” The remarks marked a significant shift in tone from the hard line that Putin and other top Russian ofﬁcials had taken for weeks toward the acting government in

A man prepares ballots on Wednesday for a referendum on greater autonomy for parts of Ukraine, which Russian President Vladimir Putin said should be delayed.
Kiev, which took power after proRussian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych ﬂed in February in the face of popular protests. Putin also said the Russian military has pulled back from the Ukrainian border, where troops massed in recent weeks for exercis-
es that the Ukrainian government considered threatening. But White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the U.S. had “no evidence” of a pullback and NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen told reporters “we have not seen any sign that Russia is withdrawing
its troops.” A spokesman for the group in eastern Ukraine that calls itself the Donetsk People’s Republic was quoted by Russia’s ITAR-Tass news agency as saying the group would discuss Putin’s proposal today. However, it is unclear how much influence Moscow has with the insurgents. Last month, after Russia, Ukraine, the U.S. and the European Union reached a pact calling for Ukrainian militants to disarm, the insurgents in the east rejected it, saying Russia had not negotiated on their behalf. Many Donetsk residents appear eager to go ahead with the vote. “That Putin’s personal opinion. He’s a very wise man, but we have decided to do things our own way: to become the Donetsk Republic,” said Ludmila Radchenko, 52. (AP/ THE WASHINGTON POST )
Hundreds Killed in Attack by Militants in Nigeria’s Northeast Lagos, Nigeria Islamic militants killed hundreds of people in an attack on a border town in Nigeria’s remote northeast, escalating the country’s violent insurrection in which more than 270 schoolgirls have been kidnapped. As many as 300 people were
killed when a band of extremists attacked the town of Gamboru Ngala, on Nigeria’s border with Cameroon, according to local press reports. The attack and hundreds of casualties were conﬁrmed Wednesday by Borno state information commissioner Mohammed Bulama. Shops and homes
were set ablaze and razed in the attack, he said. In the attack on Gamboru Ngala the militants sprayed gunﬁre into the crowds of people at a busy market that was open Monday night when temperatures were cooler in the semi-desert region, reported ThisDay newspaper.
The news of the attack adds to Nigeria’s growing crisis from the Islamic extremists’ violent campaign of bombings, attacks and abductions. The militant Boko Haram rebels are holding captive 276 teenage students, after abducting them from their boarding school in Chibok, also in northeastern Borno state. (AP)

A court ousted Thailand’s prime minister on Wednesday for abuse of power, accomplishing what anti-government demonstrators have sought to do for the past six months and further widening the country’s sharp political divide. Supporters of deposed Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, known as the Red Shirts, called for a huge rally Saturday to protest the ruling by the Constitutional Court.

Opposition gets wish, but supporters of Yingluck vow to ﬁght
Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra denied charges of abuse of power.
“Our stance has been clear,” said Red Shirt leader Jatuporn Prompan. “If an illegal prime minister steps in, we will ﬁght. If there’s
a coup, we will ﬁght.” The leader of the anti-government protesters, Suthep Thaugsuban, told his followers that they would stage a “ﬁnal offensive” on Friday and would achieve their goal of fully ousting the government. The court found Yingluck guilty of abusing her power by transferring the National Security Council chief in 2011 to another position. It ruled that the transfer was carried out to beneﬁt her politically powerful family, which violated the constitution — a charge she denied. Yingluck’s opponents have been demanding that she step down to make way for an interim unelected government. THANYARAT DOKSONE (AP)

They’re on the roads, but don’t plan to hop aboard until summer Washington Streetcars are running along D.C. roadways this spring, but you won’t be able to ride until at least this summer. District Department of Transportation ofﬁcials have set no timetable for the end of streetcar testing and the start of passenger service along H Street and Benning Road NE, but several things still need to happen before it starts: Another streetcar must arrive from the manufactur-
er, the line must pass various levels of testing and certiﬁcation and the car barn must be complete. The barn, at Benning Road and 26th Street NE, will serve as an operations center and maintenance facility for the ﬁrst two miles of what the District government hopes will become a 22-mile streetcar network over the next several decades. DDOT Associate Director Carl Jackson said the sixth streetcar should be in the District by early next month. Testing continues along the line. The department hopes the car barn can be complete by August, Jackson said. Meanwhile, the District has reapplied to the U.S. Department

of Transportation for a $20 million grant that would cover about a third of the cost of streetcar line through Anacostia. There are hundreds of applicants for such grants nationwide, and this is the third time the DDOT has sought one. Jackson said he was hopeful that
revisions in the application, including details on how the streetcar line might stimulate economic development in Anacostia, would make the third time the charm. DDOT also is working on an environmental assessment of the Anacostia project. The line would connect Firth
Sterling Avenue and Howard Road, near the Anacostia Metrorail station, with the foot of the 11th Street Bridge. There are several possible routes, including following an old railroad track bed or going through the streets of historic Anacostia. The idea of a streetcar line through Anacostia, which goes back to the mayoral administration of Anthony Williams, has gained both supporters and opponents over the years. Thomas Perry, DDOT’s program manager for streetcar engineering and construction, said designing and building the new line would require at least three years. ROBERT THOMSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

containers with “Take Me!” stickers littering alleys and empty lots. Karini, 30, and her friend, Timothy Logan Melham, 27, of Northwest, trolled the streets in and around Georgetown last month and picked some up, police said. They were arrested, brieﬂy jailed, and charged in a criminal summons with theft.
“We wouldn’t have done this if we thought we did wrong,” Karini said. “We just wanted to repurpose them.” The plan seemed simple. Karini wanted to plant ﬂowers at her rowhouse in Northeast and set out with her friend to collect the makeshift pots. They were careful to only take bins with stickers, Karini said. They
were out late because people put out their trash before they go to bed. They were so open about it that at one point, Karini said, she doubled back to explain to a homeowner what they were up to. But a secret service agent, who spotted them while guarding a Georgetown home, found the scene suspicious. And D.C. police wrote a report that intimated a scheme far more sinister than seeking free ﬂower pots. The report says the agent saw a man “walk stealthily down the sidewalk with a hood over his head to conceal his face collecting DPW recycling bins.” PETER HERMANN AND

Mathew Goldstein’s wrong turn by the White House exposed a potential national security weakness. The IT specialist for the Internal Revenue Service was driving along 17th Street NW on Tuesday when he inadvertently followed the motorcade carrying Sasha and Malia Obama into the secure perimeter for the presidential compound. Goldstein, who was ordered released on a misdemeanor charge after a brief appearance in D.C. Superior Court on Wednesday, told law enforcement ofﬁcials he had made a mistake and was not familiar with the roads around the White House. “He was at a function downtown with colleagues, and said he was just checked out mentally,” said one ofﬁcial familiar with the incident. “It seems to be bad luck on his part.” But the mistaken left turn raised

Goldstein, who a friend described as brilliant, but absent-minded, was so close to the motorcade that the metal posts couldn’t be raised in time to block the car, according to court papers ﬁled Wednesday.

There’s a photograph capturing 8-year-old Martin Cobb of Richmond in his Sunday best — light gray suit, pink button-down shirt and matching tie, shiny black shoes. And he’s standing tall for a guy his size. It’s how his community sees him: “a soldier,” “a hero” and a boy with “a heart of a lion.” Martin and his 12-year-old sister were playing on the railroad tracks near their home in South Richmond last Thursday when a teenager approached them and attempted to rape the girl, an aunt told CBS 6. Martin tried to intervene and was beaten, said the aunt, Geraldine Pitchford. He died at the scene. Police have said he suffered a severe head trauma. Mar t in’s mot her, Sharain Spruill, said a 16-year-old boy carried the bloodied girl home and blamed someone else for the attack. Authorities said the teen intimidated and threatened the girl and she initially gave authorities the wrong description of her attacker. The teen was charged with

murder and strangulation over the weekend. Martin, or “Marty” as he was known in his tight-knit community, was often seen riding his bike around the neighborhood. His mother said he liked to play with toy cars. And he collected keys. Throughout the weekend, family, friends and neighbors paid tribute to him. Hundreds assembled outside his South Richmond church Saturday for a vigil. Praising the boy for protecting his sister, a neighbor, Andrew Patillo, told the Times-Dispatch, “He stood so tall, to be so small.” A petition directed to the White House asked that he be recognized for his heroism. It had nearly 3,219 signatures by Wednesday afternoon. LINDSEY BEVER (THE WASHINGTON POST/AP)

NFL’s ‘No-Win’ Situation MEANWHILE …
Defensive end Michael Sam dropped 70 slots in one draft projection after coming out as gay.
Gallaudet’s Talaat Could Join Rare Group in NFL
After a poor NFL scouting combine, a slightly better pro day at the University of Missouri, and months of criticism about athletic deficiencies, it’s possible Michael Sam will spend three days waiting for a call that never comes. Sam, projected in February as a third-round pick, dropped 70 slots in one projection only a few hours after coming out as gay that same month. If the defensive end isn’t selected by any team in this year’s NFL draft, which begins today, former NFL player Wade Davis said the perception won’t be that it was because of Sam’s ability. “The NFL kind of has no win in this situation,” said Davis, who himself came out after his NFL career ended and is now a gayrights activist. “Because if he doesn’t get drafted, it’s going to be positioned that he didn’t get drafted because he’s gay.” Put simply: The NFL would avoid a major public-relations headache if, at any point this weekend, a team uses a draft pick on Sam. If he goes undrafted or isn’t even signed as a free agent, the NFL’s message of progress and preparedness for a gay player becomes a more difﬁcult sell. In February, a Sports Illustrated reporter wrote that one NFL general manager predicted Sam wouldn’t be drafted. This week, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel polled 21 scouts about where they’d be comfortable selecting Sam; ﬁve said they wouldn’t use a draft pick on him, and an additional seven said they wouldn’t even sign him to a freeagent contract. None was willing to take him before the ﬁfth round.

Sam’s Courage to be Honored at ESPYs Michael Sam has been selected the winner of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. The Missouri defensive end will receive the award given to individuals who transcend sports at The 2014 ESPYs on July 16. Sam joins a prestigious list of winners ranging from Jim Valvano, the first recipient in 1993, to Muhammad Ali, Billie Jean King, Cathy Freeman, Nelson Mandela and Pat Summitt. (AP)
A Poor Combine Hurts Sam’s Stock Sam’s draft stock has been in freefall since a poor showing at the NFL scouting combine, where his vertical leap and 40-yard dash time — he was clocked officially at 4.91 seconds and posted two false starts — raised more scrutiny about how he and his 6-foot-2, 261-pound frame fit in the NFL. Bill Polian, the former longtime NFL executive, said this week during a conference call with reporters that, looking only at his skills, he would project Sam as a third-day draft choice because his size isn’t an ideal fit for either defensive end or outside linebacker, and because Sam is largely seen as a one-note player. (T WP)
Within the margins these past three months have been frequent media leaks about Sam’s character and continual chatter about his physical shortcomings, much of which has come from anony-
mous sources. “When you see anonymous people and people who are leaking stories, they’re afraid that their good old football is going to look a lot different. And it’s not,” said
Davis, who prepped Sam for his February announcement and has met with NFL ofﬁcials about how to prepare for openly gay players in team locker rooms. “They’ve never seen a game Michael Sam played, but they just assume he’s going to be out there with pom-poms,” Davis said. If Sam is not on an active roster when the season begins in early September, there’s likely to be much more discussion about whether America itself is more accepting of gays than its sports teams. Davis, who played for the Redskins, said he expects the 24-yearold player to be drafted in the ﬁfth or sixth round. He said that Sam didn’t seem worried about the possibilities when they last spoke. “Michael Sam has proven he can play,” Davis said. “He just wants to have the opportunity.” KENT BABB (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Adham Talaat is one step away from his football dream. Last year, he helped lead the 2013 Gallaudet Bison to a 9-0 start and the NCAA Division III playoffs for the first time in the school’s 150-year history. This week, Talaat, a defensive lineman, hopes to be one of only a few hard-of-hearing players ever to be drafted into the NFL. Only a few deaf or severely hard-of-hearing athletes have played in the NFL (the National Association of the Deaf says distinguishing between “deaf” and “hard of hearing” is an individual choice). The first was defensive tackle Bonnie Sloan, who played four games for St. Louis in 1973. Kenny Walker, a former defensive lineman, played two seasons for the Broncos in the early 1990s. Perhaps the most well known is Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman, who went undrafted in 2012 but signed with Seattle. Coleman became nationally recognized during this year’s NFL playoffs when he was featured in a Duracell commercial telling his story. He visits schools to talk about how being deaf has motivated him.

COMEDIAN, FRIEND OF LOUIS C.K., MASTER OF CROWD WORK
Todd Barry has nothing planned for his two shows in D.C. on Thursday. If that makes you nervous, don’t fret. Barry is on the last leg of his “Crowd Work” tour, where the low-key, snarky comedian operates with no plan at all. Instead, he creates sets on the spot, riffing off his interactions with the audience. It’s the same format of his latest special, “Todd Barry: The Crowd Work Tour,” released for $5, via Louis C.K.’s website. When you do a crowd work show, do you do anything to prepare?
Not really, other than booking hotels. I don’t have an outline or anything. I just wanna see what happens with them.
Seattle, said, “There’s a blues bar and I stood next to the governor.” That’s one of my favorite moments. That he chose to tell me that, and that it was an interesting thing. How do you pick someone?
Has the lack of preparation made shows more or less stressful?
Me + my friend going to a loud, new bar.
Every Thursday in Express XX0165 2x3
Both. I remember going to Philadelphia and just going, Oh man, I don’t have to do anything, I don’t have to write a set list, I don’t have to have that kind of anxiety. But then I was like, I do have to stay onstage, doing something. So it was kind of a double-edged sword. You have to have faith that someone in the audience leads you somewhere funny.
Sometimes some people seem mildmannered — like the guy in my movie who just out of the blue, in
If someone’s got a look to them — a big beard, those tribal earrings — I might use that as a launching point but you kind of just look around and see if anyone wants to talk. It’s a bit of a crapshoot. You’re not insulting people in the special. You were pretty gentle.
I was pretty gentle. But there was that woman you called out for being drunk, to which she replied, “I’m not drunk, you’re drunk.”
That was the only one where I was like, God, I hope I’m not being too
mean to her. But she did yell from the back of the room so I imagine you don’t do that if you don’t want to be in the movie. Do you fail more often doing crowd work than written jokes?
There’s certain lulls that are a little more forgiving if you’re doing crowd work because it’s just a conversation — it’s not the fault of great jokes. Some comedians view crowd work as a crutch.
I don’t think it’s a crutch because if you do it and it’s not good, it’s just boring the audience. So it’s not like, Hey, you cheated by boring the audience. You’re in “Louie” again this season. Did you ﬁlm any stand-up for it?
No. There was one for last [season] where I did film a stand-up set and he had to cut it for time. But he puts me on there a lot, so I can’t complain. Well, I can complain. RUDI GREENBERG (E XPRESS)

“When … we are all out of breath, Alex is like, ‘What? Let’s do more!’ ” — TIM GETMAN, WHO PLAYS GEORGE IN “THREE MEN IN A BOAT,” ON ALEX MILLS,
WHO PLAYS MONTMORENCY, A DOG.
George (Tim Getman), Harris (Rob Jansen), Jerome (Tom Story) and Montmorency (Alex Mills) are the titular three men and dog.
Yes He Canine! Alex Mills plays a fine fox terrier in ‘Three Men in a Boat (To say nothing of the dog)’ Stage Last month, Alex Mills played Hamlet. Before that, he was Iago, Romeo and Jekyll/Hyde. What’s next for the two-time Helen Hayesaward winner? “I’m a talking dog,” he says. The dog in question is a droll fox terrier named Montmorency, who goes on a boating vacation in Synetic
Theater’s new play, “Three Men in a Boat (To say nothing of the dog).” In play wright Derek Goldman’s first adaptation of Jerome K. Jerome’s 1889 travelogue, the dog was played by a pillow. “People fell in love with it,” Goldman says, recalling the production he directed in 1997, where the actors animated and spoke for a throw pillow. “Of course, Alex far surpasses the pillow.” The Synetic show — Goldman’s second adaptation — follows three good friends and their dog on an illfated boating trip up the Thames. (Pieces of living-room furniture

represent the boat.) What was supposed to be a relaxing vacation turns into a mighty struggle as the men face fearsome foes, such as a tin of pineapple that refuses to open. The struggle results in grievous injuries for all three men, but Montmorency comes out unscathed. The dog, probably the least bumbling member of the crew, is against the trip from the beginning. “There’s nothing for me to do. Scenery is not in my line, and I don’t smoke. If I see a rat, you won’t stop; and if I go to sleep, you get fooling about with the boat, and
“He takes on Jerome’s personality, which is very classy,” Goldman says. “The humor comes from the mixture of him being a dog — doing things like killing rats — and having this heightened dialect and sensibility.” Mills’ muse was Jackie, a Jack Russell terrier that’s “like a child” to the play’s choreographer, Irina Tsikurishvili, Mills says. “Jackie’s energy is just so high and boundless,” he says. Doggie exuberance comes easily to Mills. Throughout the 90-minute play, he bounds around on all fours, makes messes for the sheer joy of it and parades proudly when he catches a water rat. Tim Getman, who plays George, now knows the exhaustion of vacationing with a real-life terrier. “When there are very physical scenes and we are all out of breath, Alex is like, ‘What? Let’s do more!’ ”

slop me overboard. If you ask me, I call the whole thing bally foolishness,” Montmorency says. Sort of: Mills delivers this speech as an expressive series of barks, which are expertly translated by his owner, Jerome. Montmorency can speak English when he feels like it, using the same upper-crust accent as his owner.
Close Encounters In “Neighbors,” out Friday, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron are neighbors! Who don’t get along! Oh, the zaniness! It could be worse, like in these films that feature the bad next door. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (EXPRESS)
1 ‘Rear Window’ Two characters vie for the vile in this 1954 classic: Jimmy Stewart’s Jeff Jeffries and Raymond Burr’s Lars Thorwald. The former spies on everyone with a telephoto lens; the latter kills his wife. So about a draw.
2 ‘Funny Farm’ In this 1988 comedy, Andy (Chevy Chase, when he was more funny and less jerky) and wife move to the country so he can write. But you know all small-town folk are just weird, so the couple finds less quiet and more chaos.
3 ‘Apt Pupil’ Adapted from a Stephen King novella, this 1998 film is about the Nazi next door. Ian McKellen plays the war criminal in hiding; Brad Renfro is the teenager who turns out to be even scarier.

4 ‘The Stepford Wives’
Synetic Theater, 1800 S. Bell St., Arlington; through June 8, $35; 866-811-4111, synetictheater.org. (Crystal City)
The good 1975 one, not the bad 2004 one. Joanna (Katharine Ross) moves to Stepford, Conn., and finds that all the women are perfectly dressed and obsessed with housework. You know, like they’re supposed to be.
‘Belle’: Movies can show us things we’ve never seen and tell stories we’ve never heard, and that’s the case with “Belle,” out Friday. Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw, left) is the illegitimate, mixed-race daughter of an English nobleman in 1700s England; when her black, enslaved mother dies, her white father takes her to be raised by his relatives. There she lives between worlds; for example, she’s not allowed to eat dinner either with the servants or the family. The film, based on a true story, is a fascinating examination of race, class and privilege, anchored by an incredible performance from Mbatha-Raw. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)
5 ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Anyone who’s seen a NYC-based episode of “House Hunters” knows it’s really important to have “non-Satanistfilled building” on your wish list. It’s too bad Mia Farrow just had to have those granite countertops in this 1968 film.

‘Gloves,’ 1985 (adapted from a 1940s design) While living in Paris, one of Meret Oppenheim’s day jobs was designing gloves. As curator Krystyna Wasserman points out, Oppenheim liked incorporating gloves in her works as sym-
bolic of hands, “the tools of the artist.” “Oppenheim collected gloves of all kinds,” Wasserman says. “She even had a baseball glove, a present from Marcel Duchamp.”
In “Gloves,” Oppenheim depicted “friendship” between nature and humans by way of the outwardly visible blood vessels, reminiscent of the veins of leaves.

Her Social Network Meret Oppenheim’s life and artwork were enriched by good pals Exhibits Meret Oppenheim was having coffee with Picasso in Paris in 1936, when he caught a glimpse of her bracelet, made out of fur. “You can cover anything with fur,” Picasso observed, inspiring Oppenheim to create her most famous work, a fur-lined teacup, saucer and spoon. Not long thereafter, New York’s Museum of Modern Art bought the sculpture, its first by a female artist. Oppenheim, who died in 1985, is now considered one of the leading female artists of the Surrealist movement. Friendship didn’t just help Oppenheim advance: It was her muse. The Swiss artist came back to it again and again as she explored themes of love, sensuality, nature, reality and imagination. Her relationships and those of others sparked the pieces collected in
‘Schoolgirl’s Notebook,’ 1973 (copy of the 1930 original) Made out of her math textbook, this work was originally a present for Oppenheim’s dad’s birthday when the artist was 16. (Another form of friendship: father-daughter.) “She didn’t like the strict education system [in Switzerland, where they lived] and wanted to go to Paris,” Wasserman says. (Oppenheim didn’t like math either, as one can see in the ridiculousness of her “equations.”) “This was her plan to convince her father to send her to study in Paris.” And it worked!

‘Table with Bird’s Feet,’ 1973 (copy of the 1939 original) Although she didn’t like being categorized as a Surrealist, Oppenheim’s sculptures tended toward the bizarre and dreamlike. “She liked to take utilitarian objects and make them into a fantasy,” Wasserman says. This table not only has bird feet, but it also has “traces of birds walking on it,” Wasserman notes. For Oppenheim, the relationship between humans and the environment was a kind of friendship.
level. One display case is dedicated to letters and postcards written to Trevor Winkfield, who met the 63-year-old Oppenheim in 1976, when he was 22. The pen pals traded philosophical musings. Oppenheim was struck by the close bond between Bettina Brentano and Karoline von Gunderrode, two 18th-century poets, and dedicated paintings and prints to them. Other pieces are more-abstract takes on friendship as the relationship between humans and nature. The concept of friendship extends to the people who brought the exhibit together. After a collector of Oppenheim’s artwork died, a friend acquired it and donated it to the National Museum of Women in the Arts in her memory. “It was a great act of friendship,” says curator Krystyna Wasserman, herself a friend of both the late collector and the benefactor. “This is the reason we called the exhibition ‘Tender Friendships.’ ” ELENA GOUK ASSIAN (FOR E XPRESS)

Signs of Timelessness Metronomy leader Joseph Mount crafts lasting ‘Love Letters’ Music As he toured the world behind Metronomy’s hit 2011 album “The English Riviera,” frontman Joseph Mount often felt homesick for his friends and family back in England. “The funny thing about touring is that there are two things going on,” Mount says. “One is this massive enjoyment and very genuine pleasure of meeting fans and entertaining them. At the same time, this dream job takes you away from [people at home].” As he started writing the songs that would become the band’s fourth album, they turned into little odes — ways of connecting to his far-away loved ones. It’s no surprise, then, that Mount titled the record “Love Letters.” The result is a more intimate and downbeat record for a band known for idiosyncratic electropop. T he ot her reason for t he
stripped-back sound was the decision to record in analog at Toe Rag Studios in London. The studio, where Jack White produced The White Stripes’ “Elephant,” is known in the industry for lending a retro sensibility to rock albums. Mount wanted to see how the old-school recording style could influence his own work, which had made heavy use of synthesizers and computers. “I thought it would be interesting to make my kind of music in a place that is thought of as a reserve for authentic musicians,” he says. The goal wasn’t to be retro for the sake of being retro, but to inject the quality and rich sound of the past into modern pop. It also forced Mount to hone his skills as a musician. He compared the experience to handwriting something without spell check and being forced to remember whether the word “tomorrow” has one “m” or two. While the album is still distinctively Metronomy — moody, melodic and electronic — it’s permeated by touches of psychedelic rock, Motown and other sounds of the ’60s. Mount and his three-piece back-
ing band also bring elements of that era on the road. The band’s new touring show harkens back to the playful seriousness, and serious suits, of mid-century music productions — a time when matching outfits and a choreographed aesthetic were de rigueur (picture the Tom Hanks film “That Thing You Do!”). “It’s supposed to be a visual and musical feast,” Mount says. Despite the vintage touches, “Love Letters,” released in March, doesn’t wallow in nostalgia. Mount sought to pay tribute to sounds of the past rather than be a derivative of them. On “I’m Aquarius,” a synth beat seamlessly backs a shoop-shoop chorus. It isn’t stuck in the ’60s, nor is it of 2014’s relentlessly electronic moment. I n s t e a d , t he s on g s h i mmers and glitters timelessly, borne of Mount’s aspiration “to make records that outlive me.” R ACHEL SADON (E XPRESS)

Casey Cunningham performs for a packed room of amateur comedians and onlookers at H Street’s Vendetta on April Fool’s Day.
Keep Calm and Carry On Joking Amateur stand ups find comic relief in D.C.’s open mic circuit Comedy Shapna Pai, 43, leans against the wooden bar at Vendetta and stares straight ahead, deer-in-headlights style. Ten feet to her left, the shaved head of Gabe Rojo, 43, is getting shinier by the second. These two anxious strangers are about to do the same, terrifying thing: Stand
up in front of a crowd of strangers and try to make them laugh. Pai, a federal worker who has been hitting open mics on and off for about three years, sheds her anxiety the moment she steps onstage. “My name is Shapna. I’m an Indian girl, not yet married, I don’t yet have kids,” she says. She picks up an Indian accent and gets increasingly shrill: “So I am not married, no kids, no husband, no clean, no cook … just put her old ass on a mountaintop to die! At least, that’s what my parents put on their
Christmas cards this year.” A fire truck screams down H Street, and Pai expertly works the siren into the joke, making her parents’ mounting hysteria seem even funnier. The audience — surprisingly large for a weekday night — eats it up. For a city considered humorless, D.C. is teeming with regular folks like Pai who want to give comedy a try, according to Philadelphia-based comedian Chris Coccia, who teaches a stand-up class at the DC Improv with a monthslong
So You Think You’re Funny? Stand-up comedy is a low-overhead hobby. All you have to do is: 1. Think up five minutes of material. Pro tip: Don’t know where to start? Sign up for a class at dcimprov.com. 2. Try it out on your family or pets. 3. Go to an open mic and inflict your comedy on supportive friends and innocent strangers. Pro tip: Visit event websites for sign-up info. 4. Pay attention during other people’s sets or the host will make fun of you. 5. Repeat steps 1-4 for years on end. Eventually, you may become funny enough to land a paying gig. More likely, you’ll just make some weird friends. S.D.

entertainment | Weekend Pass waiting list. “D.C. is such a politically correct town,” Coccia says. “Comedy gives you a nice opportunity to step outside of diplomacy. There’s no other job or hobby that allows you to say, ‘No no, I’m supposed to talk about offensive things in an offensive way.’ ” Sean Joyce, a local comic by night and World Bank worker by day, agrees. “People work really hard here, they are very career-focused, and I think everyone is trying to find an outlet for levity, whether that’s doing comedy or just watching it,” he says.
“Standup is scarier than anything I have ever done, and that includes being in a combat zone.” — GA BE ROJO, AN ARMY VET WHO IS NOW A COMEDIAN AND SOCIAL WORKER
Two years ago, Joyce started an open-mic comedy night at The Big Hunt. Now, he runs local open mics six nights a week and is deluged with emails from people looking for five minutes of stage time. After Pai’s set at Vendetta, it’s Rojo’s turn. He steps onstage, and his voice wavers. “Does anyone know what manscaping is?” he asks. The crowd ignores him, so he soldiers on. “Sometime in the ’90s, it became not OK for men to be hairy … and at the same time, I was turning into a Latino Chia Pet.” He sounds so authentically dismayed, a woman in the front row guffaws, sending a fine spray of beer onto her dining companion.

of stand-up. It was a nice moment, but not quite enough to quell Rojo’s nerves. “To tell you the truth, I’m not really having fun yet,” Rojo says afterward. “Standup is scarier than anything I have ever done, and that includes being in a combat zone.” An Army vet, Rojo spent part of the Gulf War stationed in Israel. He now works as a social worker, and he’s found that his ability to decipher nonverbal communication serves him well in the office and onstage. “I like to look at what’s unspoken between people and say what’s really going on,” he says.

Joyce, on the other hand, makes sure his onstage candor doesn’t seep into the office. “I’m much more tactful at work,” he says. That’s probably for the best. It’s OK for D.C.’s bureaucrats, staffers and consultants to tell the truth at night. But if we did it during the day, the government might come to a grinding halt, Coccia says. “What if people went in [to work] and said, ‘Look, who are we fooling? We haven’t done anything in a year? We’ve been pushing papers from one side of the desk to the other for the last 12 months,’ ” he says. “It’d be total chaos.” SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)

Different Points to View Meet handsome, historic obelisks without going near the National Mall The Washington Monument, which reopens on Monday, has some major drawbacks.

Those dogs really want to pee on Promenade Classique’s Washington Monument.
Promenade Classique A 14-ton, 30-foot-tall miniature Washington Monument is the leastweird thing about this trippy sculpture garden in an Alexandria office park. To reach Monument Jr., walk to the Potomac’s edge; you’ll pass a giant arrow, some faux Classical ruins, several statues of disembodied mouths that spew or drool water, and lunch-eating drones.
Congressional Cemetery The obelisk was a hugely popular gravestone style in the early and mid1800s, and not just for VIPs. Obelisks of all kinds — skinny and fat, ornate and plain, decrepit and not — adorn graves of babies, ladies and ordinary guys. Alexander Macomb, an Army general who died in 1841, got an unusual model: His obelisk has a Spartan helmet and a bird on top.
Glenwood Cemetery The slothful obelisk enthusiast can enjoy Glenwood by car via the cemetery’s paved roads. As at Congressional, obelisks abound. The most depressing is the Benjamin Grenup monument, raised by his volunteer firefighter colleagues after he was crushed under the wheels of a fire engine in 1856. A cheery sculpted panel depicts this event.

HEADS OF THE GLASS
Five alcohol all-stars share their tips for best enjoying whiskey, gin, sake, sherry and wine When you raise a glass of craft whiskey to your lips, you’re not just sipping some potent amber alcohol. You’re also consuming centuries’ worth of history, countless aroma compounds, and the immeasurable fruits and labors of a hardworking distillery. And that bottle of sake you’re drinking alongside your California roll? It’s way more than the sweet results of fermented rice. Rather, it’s an
ancient liquor steeped in Japanese tradition with roots in religious ceremonies. And don’t even get us started about what’s going on in your favorite bottle of wine. The takeaway? You sure do drink a lot. And also: For the layman, this alcohol stuff can be complex. Which is why we set out to find D.C.’s preeminent authorities who could answer our
burning questions and demystify our favorite types of alcohol. And did we mention they all happen to be women? Along the way we learned the best way to mix a martini (James Bond is wrong!), how hot your sake should be (trick question: It’s best served cold) and whether you should buy wine from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods (sorry, Two Buck Chuck). L AUR A HAYES (FOR E XPRESS)
Chantal Tseng Chantal Tseng pours a glass of sherry using a venencia, an ages-old tool that helps aerate the fortified wine.
Sherry Pro Mockingbird Hill, 1843 Seventh St. NW; 202-3169396, drinkmoresherry.com. (Shaw-Howard U) Mockingbird Hill, the ham and sherry bar Tseng coowns with husband Derek Brown in Shaw, prides itself on being transparent in its mission to bring good sherry to the D.C. market. “We’re not subtle about what we’re doing,” she says. “We’re like, ‘Hi, we’re a sherry bar, come on in!’ ” Tseng, who has been bartending in D.C. since 2000, admires sherry for its versatility. “You don’t want to manipulate it too much. But at the same time, it’s super adaptable. Sherry makes any cocktail better.” She’s amassed 102 different sherries for the bar, and serves them in flights with small bites inspired by La Venencia, a popular Madrid wine bar. “This is something that’s been around 3,000 years for a reason,” she says. “It was the ‘IT’ drink during Shakespearean times and in Colonial America.”
What to pair with sherry (besides ham): “Miso soup — especially with a nutty Amontillado sherry. Most table wines clash with miso dishes, but Amontillado and miso are a match because they share an earthy, or ‘umami,’ flavor profile.” How long does a bottle last: “Manzanillas and finos are meant to be enjoyed fresh; even a week is pushing it. Dessert-like sherries like Pedro Ximenez can last longer, thanks to sugar, but finish a bottle off before the one-month mark.”

Rachael Ewing Whiskey Sommelier Ri Ra Georgetown, 3125 M St. NW; 202-751-2111, rira.com/georgetown While enrolled as a student at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland in 2008, Ewing showed up at The Grill Bar, one of the city’s oldest and most celebrated pubs, and asked for a job. “I knew nothing about whiskey, but they gave me a chance,” she says. Ewing had planned for a career in international development, but she chose a different path after discovering she had a great palate. Her current position allows her to work with a unique challenge: She’s severely dyslexic. Ewing says it’s satisfying to find a career that rewards
her sensory perception skills: “I’m very observant, which helps me behind the bar. My mind just picks up on things like body language because I’m trying to find my way around words.” Now at 25, Ewing is one of 1,300 certified Scotch experts in the world, according to the certifying body, The Scotch Whisky Experience.
Scotch Tip The best Scotch for beginners: “Glenrothes was my gateway whiskey. I use Scotch and whiskey interchangeably because Scotch is whiskey distilled from malted barley. Also, don’t be afraid of water. If that’s what it takes to get you to honor the art form and drink it straight, do it!”

The Gin Joint, 2317 Calvert St. NW; 202-234-4110, newheightsrestaurant.com. (Woodley Park)
Soto is a “super taster,” meaning she has more taste buds than the rest of us. Good thing, because the aromatics in sake are far more delicate than those in wine, requiring a palate attuned to subtlety. “There are about 20 kinds of squash I can identify in sake,” Soto says. The Howard County, Md., resident is the only non-Japanese female kikizakeshi (master sake teacher) certified in brewing, service and education. She acquired the title after collecting four certifications from the Sake Service Institute, taking additional courses and completing two brewing apprenticeships. Through her business, Sake 2 You, she runs “sake safaris” to Japan, teaches a class geared toward business professionals called “Sake for Success” and is working on a book about incorporating sake into everyday life. “I’m trying every day, all day to make people feel like it’s less bourgeois,” Soto says.
Sake Tips What sushi haters can eat with sake: “My favorite pairing is a pulled pork sandwich with a very bright ginjo (the second-highest sake quality level). But there are about 18,000 different sake varieties, so you can pair it with anything.” What makes her shudder: “Besides sake bombs? When people microwave sake to temps above 100 degrees. It kills off the original alcohol, requiring grain alcohol to be added back in. It’s not even sake at that point! So stick with the cold stuff.”
LAURA HAYES (FOR EXPRESS)
Tiffany Dawn Soto
Hassoun started at The Gin Joint — an 11-seat bar below New Heights — in March 2010 as a bartender, with only a shot of gin knowledge. “There was literally no training,” she says. “In my first few days I found myself pretending to need more ice only to dash in the back to pop open a book to find recipes.” Now as manager and beverage director, Hassoun possesses enough knowledge to play gin matchmaker with guests who need a little guidance. “Only one in 300 people come in and know what they want,” she says. Beyond gin, Hassoun’s true passion is tonic. With help from Mom, she makes her own under the moniker Chronic Tonic (thechronictonic.com).
Gin Tips Shaken or stirred? “Stirred! Never ever shake a martini. It bruises the liquor and turns it a milky white. Stir it 35 times instead, and it will be just as cold and more pure.” How to make a good drink at home: “Stay away from sugar. Use fresh fruit juices instead.”
Morgan, the 19th female to be named master sommelier in North America by the Court of Master Sommeliers (there are 135 master sommeliers in North America), was exposed to vino at an early age by parents who liked to entertain and didn’t believe in a kids table. The sommelier track caught her eye while she was working as a cocktail waitress on dollar beer night in college. “Once I understood wine wasn’t just for stuffy old French men, I realized it’s the coolest job in a restaurant,” Morgan says. As a consultant, she helps restaurants like Bryan Voltaggio’s Aggio build creative wine lists, and organizes private events for oenophiles.
Wine Tips How to get a good value: “Lesser-known varietals are likely to have a lower markup. If you like the new oak and concentrated fruit taste of California cabernet, try Aglianico from Southern Italy.” Better grocer for wine: Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods Market? “Whole Foods. They have staff to guide you.”

If Roby’s There, Take Him
Redskins general manager Bruce Allen has proved to be a fiscal conservative with the salary cap the past four years. Now he’s in charge of drafting and there’s no expectation Allen will trade into the first round By Rick to grab a corner or Snider safety when he can get a contributor in the second round. Maybe Allen will trade down, but he said if a first-round talent fell to Washington the team would take him. And Roby is a late first-round talent. Roby has good hands to bat down passes and can block punts, too. He could contribute right away as a nickel slot corner and a special teamer — which Washington also needs. And Roby could develop into a long-term solution at defensive back. The Redskins hope second-year corner David Amerson emerges on one side, but 10-year veteran DeAngelo Hall, who is coming off a ﬁne 2013 season, may only have a couple seasons left. When Hall is done, Roby could step up to give Washington a solid young secondary. It would be easy to draft a right

Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby should be the Redskins’ first pick. Washington has to wait until 34th overall in the NFL draft to make its opening selection, but Roby would be a natural fit if he falls to the second round.
Ohio State defensive back Bradley Roby ran the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds at the NFL combine in February.
tackle with the 34th pick, too, and the Redskins wouldn’t be wrong if they did. But this is a passing league and Washington needs young players in the secondary. The offense has enough ﬁrepower, but the secondary may once again be vulnerable this year. Roby is a potential ﬁrst- or second-rounder, so he could be drafted by San Francisco or Denver with the 30th or 31st picks. His versatility and special teams production makes him attractive after the blue chippers are taken. If Roby’s gone, Washington should take the top corner, safety or offensive lineman available. Allen said the team will take the highest-rated player regardless of position, but every GM says that. GMs don’t want to reach for a need and fail, mak-

ing them even more vulnerable to second-guessing. But if a top-rated quarterback fell to 34th, would the Redskins take him? No, they’d try to trade the pick, so it’s not always about the best player available. The difference is razor-thin between
picks at this point, so Washington might as well ﬁll a need. The offensive line choice could be between Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and UCLA guard Xavier Su’a-Filo. Kouandjio is a DeMatha alum who would be a perfect right tackle in a power-run scheme, but his feet might not be quick enough for the Redskins’ system. Su’a-Filo could replace Chris Chester at right guard, and the run-blocker also has experience at left guard and left tackle at UCLA. Given its many needs, Washington shouldn’t have a problem ﬁnding a potential starter with its ﬁrst pick. Rick Snider has covered Washington sports since 1978. Follow him on Twitter @Snide_Remarks
Cousins Trade Unlikely: A trade involving Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins during this week’s NFL draft is possible but remains a long shot, according to several people familiar with the situation. Redskins officials have said throughout the offseason that they haven’t been engaged in trade discussions regarding Cousins, left, the team’s backup to Robert Griffin III for the past two seasons, and don’t expect to deal him.

Sports Cornerback, Thomas both under contract through 2018 season NFL Richard Sherman finally got the attention of being a top pick. Standing on the stage with the spotlight directly on him and holding a Seattle jersey with his name across the back, the All-Pro cornerback became the latest player in the Seahawks’ secondary to be locked up for the long term. And he’s getting paid the best of anyone. “I guess this is how it feels to
be a first-rounder,” Sherman said. Sherman, who was drafted in the fifth round in 2011, signed a four-year contract extension Wednesday with the Seahawks, making him one of the highestpaid cornerbacks in NFL history. Sherman announced the deal on his website and later confirmed the new deal is set to keep him in a Seahawks uniform through the 2018 season. He wrote that the extension is for $57.4 million with $40 million guaranteed. He also wrote on his website that there is no other team or city that he would want to play for. “The goal has always been to stay in Seattle and continue to

play for the Seahawks,” Sherman wrote. “With this chapter closed, I can continue to focus on what is
important — defending our Super Bowl Championship and being the best cornerback in the NFL.” Sherman’s deal wraps up a solid offseason for the Seahawks prior to the NFL draft. Seattle re-signed defensive end Michael Bennett before the start of free agency. They then reached extensions with coach Pete Carroll through 2016 and a fouryear, $40 million extension with AllPro free safety Earl Thomas. Now Sherman, a two-time AllPro selection, is locked up as well. Thomas and Sherman are under contract through the 2018 season, while strong safety Kam Chancellor is under contract through 2017.

Stephen Strasburg recovered from another rough first inning to pitch into the eighth, Wilson Ramos produced a go-ahead sacrifice fly in his first game since opening day, and the Nationals edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Wednesday. After waiting through a rain delay of more than 1½ hours to throw his first pitch, Strasburg (3-2) did what he’s done all season: struggled to get the ﬁrst three outs before being fairly dominant. This time, he gave up four consecutive singles, including run-scoring hits by Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig, during a 28-pitch ﬁrst as Los Angeles went ahead 2-0. Then Strasburg got into a groove, while his teammates scored three runs off former Nationals pitcher Dan Haren (4-1). In all, Strasburg allowed two runs and seven hits — all singles — in 71⁄3 innings. He faced the minimum three batters in each of the second through ﬁfth innings, and threw a total of 114 pitches. Strasburg lowered his season ERA to 3.42, but there’s quite a disparity hidden in there. He’s allowed eight earned runs in his eight ﬁrst

innings in 2014, a 9.00 ERA. From the second inning on, it’s 2.29. Washington broke the tie in the ﬁfth, when hits by Denard Span and Jayson Werth, plus a walk to Adam LaRoche, loaded the bases with one out for Ramos. He worked the count full before sending a ﬂy ball to right field that Puig ran down to grab. Puig then made a strong throw home, but Span beat it by a couple of steps to make it 3-2.

Williams in Car Crash While on the Radio Nationals manager Matt Williams had just pulled off I-395, finishing his weekly radio interview on 106.7 The Fan on Wednesday morning as he sat in traffic. With his Tahoe stopped under the M Street overpass, waiting for the light to turn green, Williams’ morning got weird. A car “nudged” his bumper and squeezed through the traffic. Two police cars followed. A helicopter flew overhead. And Williams described it all on live radio. The bumper of Williams’ car needs fixing, but otherwise there were no ill effects. Williams said he was told police had caught the man who bumped into his car while trying to flee. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Firefighters found a family of four dead in a burning mansion owned by former tennis star James Blake, who was renting out the Tampa Bay, Fla.-area house and not there at the time, officials said Wednesday. Police said the ﬁre was intentionally set, and the bodies in the home have not been positively identiﬁed. The county medical examiner will perform autopsies on the
bodies to ﬁnd out how they died. Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Col. Donna Lusczynski said the scene was “unusual.” She says ofﬁcials don’t know how the ﬁre was set. She added that there were “various ﬁreworks” throughout the home and that two of the bodies appeared to have “upper body trauma,” but she didn’t give any more details. Hours after the ﬁre was reported at about 6 a.m., ﬁreﬁghters were still there putting out hot spots at

LISA ROSE (GAME SHOW NETWORK)
— TOM HARDY, STAR OF THE EXPERIMENTAL FILM “LOCKE”
Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Gets the Show
I am a man. I have a mind. So naturally, I was curious to watch the game show “Mind of a Man” (10 p.m., Wednesdays, Game Show Network). Two female contestants must guess how men responded to survey questions. They can turn to three celebrities for guidance as well as occasional guest Ted Lange, who played bartender Isaac on “Love Boat.” A correct answer earns $200 to $300. The winner of the matchup goes for a $10,000 By Marc grand prize. Silver Is the show misogynistic? Low-minded? Lewd? You bet! Sample question: What would a man do if a woman he hooked up with asks for payment: Protest? Pay up? Or call the cops? Comedian Kym Whitley noted she always asks for the money up front. Lange chimed in: “Speaking from personal experience, I paid the bitch.” The contestants guess. Then host DeRay Davis reveals the top answer: “Protest.” Excuse me: My mind needs to go take a shower. P.S. In all fairness, sometimes the show rises from the gutter as it “reveals insights” into the “crazy minds of men.” For example: Men prefer staples to paper clips.
On the Road British actor finally earns a top film billing with a solo role in the experimental ‘Locke’ Film “It will be over quickly,” Steven Knight told Tom Hardy. The writer-director remembers saying that to his prospective star as a way of convincing him to take part in his experimental project, “Locke,” a film that takes place in real time as
the title character makes a fateful 85-minute drive. “You’ll only feel a tiny prick,” Hardy, 36, chimes in playfully. The “experimental project” was making a ﬁlm consisting solely of a man ﬁelding phone calls while driving. Save for some exterior shots, the camera would remain focused on Hardy’s face. “There’s something about phone calls where people are saying one thing but their faces are saying something else, which is such a gift,” Knight enthuses. Hardy ﬁrst caught Knight’s (and

most of the country’s) attention as Eames, the quick-witted forger with a biting sense of humor in the 2010 sci-ﬁ thriller “Inception,” which starred Leonardo DiCaprio. “I was terriﬁed because it was Leo. You can’t battle against somebody like that for screen time,” Hardy recalls. “I thought, I’m just going to give him whatever he needs, and it took a lot of a load off.” He learned that the more an actor gives of himself to other actors and the audience, the better he looks. He extrapolates that thought to life
itself. “The more generous a person is in any environment, the more there is to be received.” In “Locke,” Hardy faces the new challenge of not having anyone else to act off of. He plays Ivan Locke, the foreman of a building site that’s about to receive an important concrete pour when viewers ﬁrst meet him. We soon learn that he’s also dealing with an unraveling marriage. W hen f ilming, f loodlights were shot in Hardy’s face to simulate trafﬁc lights, with the script projected on a screen in front of him. “That’s the closest I’ve ever been to a writer’s absolute word,” he says. “Right up to the letter, to the full stops.” Instead of feeling restricted though, Hardy relished the experience and the sleight-ofhand elements that made everything come together: He was reading the script while pretending to drive a car that’s rigged to a truck, the driver of which is on the road while Hardy follows the script and takes phone calls from the other actors, who are situated in a nearby hotel room — artiﬁcial elements that meld together to produce searing realism. As Hardy puts it, “No one left the script; no one left the road. No acting required.” CHRISTOPHER KOMPANEK (THE WASHINGTON POST )
ABC Would Like to Use a Lifeline: ABC announced Wednesday that Terry Crews will be the next host of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.” The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star and retired NFL player follows former “Millionaire” hosts Cedric the Entertainer, Meredith Vieira and Regis Philbin, who originated the game show in 1999. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Crews will begin his new gig when the show begins its 13th season in the fall. (E XPRESS)

Hayes Has Enthusiasm But Little Innovation At 22, Hunter Hayes isn’t one for subtlety on his sophomore album: His up-tempo songs (“Tattoo,” “Storyline”) race with breathless rushes of lyrics and fast, busy arrangements; his ballads are intensely dramatic, whether he takes on self-esteem (the Top 10 country hit “Invisible”) or the mysteries of attraction (“Still Fallin’ ’’). The Grammy-nominated rising star is following up his 2011 selftitled debut by co-writing, co-producing and playing several instruments on “Storyline,” out now. To his credit, Hayes avoids contemporary country cliches: There are no pickup trucks or dirt roads in these songs. Still, even though the opening “Wild Card” boasts that he’s a crazy guy, Hayes could beneﬁt from loosening up and showing some of that wildness on record. That said, Hayes is an inventive country-pop songwriter and performer. His songs are packed with clever sonic twists; the album even

includes a couple of musical interludes, as if the other dozen tracks don’t provide room for all of the instrumental ideas. Hayes is striving for something more distinctive than radio hits; he wants to inspire, to create something spectacular. “Storyline” doesn’t quite fulﬁll that ambition, but fans will find the collection entertaining. And there’s enough to suggest that the multitalented boy wonder still packs plenty of potential. MICHAEL McCALL (AP)

“Gonna be hard to think of something happy with a cloud of these things coming at you.” — COMMENTER BJORN VON POSSEL AT BUZZFEED.COM gets to the
root of the problem when describing a new species of cockroach wasp, the Ampulex dementor. The wasp was named after Dementors, those creatures in “Harry Potter” that feed off happiness. Public voting at the Museum of Natural History in Berlin decided on the moniker — an obvious choice given the wasp’s tendency to paralyze its prey before eating it.
“Respect during sex doesn’t fully explain excitement on its own, or else Spain would ... be a whole lot more excited.”

effort at using a Spoiler Alert (too bad it’s on the wrong end of the sentence) after seeing a Chewbacca selﬁe from the ofﬁcial “Star Wars” Instagram account. The photo, which shows Chewie posing with Disney CEO Bob Iger, has sparked speculation online that it may be the ﬁrst image of a character from the set of “Star Wars: Episode VII.”

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You may feel as though you are falling behind, but that is merely a product of emotion tied to biased perception. Let things play out. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Something that is not initially to your taste may well be worth a second or even a third try. You want to enjoy what it has to offer. CANCER (June 21-July 22) You mustn’t let your decision-making process be affected by your emotional response to an unexpected event. Stay the course. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You may not feel as though you are the one for the job, but it’s likely to fall to you anyway — so you’d better do your homework! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There’s no reason for you to cut a visit short. Give someone what he or she asks for; you’ll still have plenty left for yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You and a loved one are eagerly anticipating getting down to the nitty-gritty. You can certainly start the ball rolling.
FOUR RACK TOTAL Make a 2-7-letter word from the letters in each row. Add points of each word using scoring directions at right. Seven-letter words get a 50-point bonus. Blank tiles used as any letter have no point value. Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the U.S. and Canada.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You can tap into a new creative wellspring, but take care! Not everything that comes from it will be to your liking. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You must be willing to shape things very carefully. Your work is not done just because you’ve completed the broad strokes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You’re nearing the end of a key personal cycle. Take care that others don’t try to steer you away from a destination that is important to you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) The fact that you do your homework will certainly serve you well. Others are sure to notice when you’re ahead of the game. DAILY CODE

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) What comes to you naturally is worth some study; it may be that you are about to shift gears in a dramatic way, but not just yet. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You may not be able to keep up casual communication with a friend, as work is likely to require more from you than usual.
