‘Isn’t Weed Legal in Oregon? No? Oh, Never Mind Then.’ A man recently called an Oregon 911 dispatcher with an unusual request. He asked, “Where can I buy some marijuana this morning?” When the dispatcher asked him if he realized he was calling the police department, he said that was interesting but he had a legitimate question and repeated the request. The dispatcher told him she had no idea where he could buy some pot. (AP) LESSONS

NYC Site ‘a Very Sacred Place’
As Sept. 11 museum prepares to open, heartbreak and hope
Feds Weigh Transgender Treatment for Manning
What You’ll See AP PHOTOS
The museum devoted to the story of Sept. 11 tells it in victims’ last voice mails, in photos of people falling from the twin towers, in the scream of sirens, in the dustcovered shoes of those who ﬂed the skyscrapers’ collapse, in the wristwatch of one of the airline passengers who confronted the hijackers. By turns chilling and heartbreaking, a place of both deathly silence and distressing sounds, the National September 11 Memorial Museum opens this week deep beneath ground zero, 12½ years after the terrorist attacks. The project was marked by construction issues, ﬁnancial squabbles and disputes over the appropriate way to honor the nearly 3,000 people killed in New York, Washington, D.C., and a Pennsylvania countryside. Whatever the challenges in conceiving it, “you won’t walk out of this museum without a feeling

The privately operated museum — built along with the memorial plaza above for $700 million in private donations and tax dollars — will be dedicated today with a visit from President Barack Obama and will be open initially to victims’ families, survivors and ﬁrst responders. It will open to the public May 21. Charles G. Wolf, who lost his wife, Katherine, planned to be at

Family and friends gather May 2 beside Kryn Miner’s casket in Essex, Vt.
Veteran’s Widow Takes on PTSD Husband’s violent death is behind her urgency to speak out Burlington, Vt. Amy Miner says her husband’s ﬁght did not end when he left the war. Kryn Miner’s battle against the emotional scars of a long military career was just beginning when he returned home. It ended last month when he was shot to death by one of their four children after he threatened to kill the family. Amy Miner said that his mental health had become a constant struggle and she agreed to an interview only two weeks after his death to speak out about the need to provide better treatment for veterans. “If we can’t take care of our veterans we shouldn’t be sending them off to war,” she said. “Because they’re coming back and this is the result and it’s happening more and more.” An Army veteran at age 44, Kryn Miner was a loving dad and husband, his wife said. But after

11 deployments in seven years, he became troubled. His behavior changed noticeably after he was thrown into a wall during a blast in Afghanistan in 2010, one of 19 blasts in his 25-year career, his widow said. Suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injury, he tried to take his own life in September, she said. Then on April 26, according to authorities, Kryn Miner threatened to kill his family, assaulted his wife, and then threw a loaded handgun to their teen child who came to her aid. “Do you want to play the gun game?” Miner asked the teen, according to authorities. The teen ﬁred six shots when Miner pulled another gun from a bag. Prosecutors ruled the shooting justiﬁed. Before his death, an anxious and depressed Miner had sought help at a VA hospital but doctors told him it wasn’t the place for him. Eventually, he turned to the Lone Survivors Foundation. It was there he took on the mission of getting help for others with PTSD. After his life ended, Amy Miner committed herself to continue his work. (AP)

Grief, Fury in Aftermath of Mine Disaster Soma, Turkey

A rescued miner is embraced by his father Tuesday after being pulled out. EMRAH GUREL (AP)
In a relentless procession that ignited wails of grief, rescue workers coated in grime lumbered out of a mine in western Turkey again and again Wednesday, struggling to carry stretchers laden with bodies covered in blankets. The corpses’ faces were as black as the coal they worked on daily. There were 274 of them — and the fate of up to 150 other miners remained unclear in Turkey’s deadliest-ever mining disaster. While emergency workers battled a toxic mix of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in deep underground tunnels to try to

Death toll in Turkish tragedy rises to 274, with many missing
People attack the offices of the prime minister’s party Wednesday in Soma, Turkey.
ﬁnd survivors, anger and despair engulfed the town of Soma, where Turkish ofﬁcials said at least 274 miners died in Tuesday’s coal mine explosion and ﬁre. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that
120 miners were still missing. Tensions were high as hundreds of relatives and miners jostled outside the mine’s entrance Wednesday, waiting for news. They were countered by a heavy
police presence. Rows of women wailed uncontrollably and men knelt sobbing or just stared in disbelief as rescue workers removed body after body. To let off steam, some heckled Turkish ofﬁcials, including Erdogan, as they passed by. The anger boiled over into violent protests in Soma, Istanbul and the capital, Ankara, all directed at Erdogan and his government.

In downtown Soma, protesters mostly in their teens and 20s faced off against riot police in front of the ruling NKP party headquarters. The protesters smashed the party’s ofﬁce windows with rocks and some in the crowd shouted that Erdogan was a “murderer!” and a “thief!” DESMOND BUTLER AND SUZAN FRASER (AP)

Following a federal judge’s decision that gay couples in Idaho can legally marry as of Friday, 19 states, plus the District of Columbia, now allow same-sex marriage, and calculations suggest that just about half of the U.S. gay population lives in a state where it’s legal. Read more on the numbers behind the calculation at washingtonpost.com. Below, the latest news on the topic: In Idaho
A federal magistrate judge on Wednesday rejected a request from Idaho’s governor to put same-sex weddings on hold while he appeals her ruling from a day earlier that struck down the state’s samesex marriage ban. U.S. District Magistrate Judge Candy Dale wrote that the appeal is unlikely to succeed so there’s no reason to keep the state from granting marriage licenses to gay couples starting Friday.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the National Organization for Marriage cannot defend Oregon’s ban on same-sex marriage after the state attorney general refused to do so, paving the way for a ruling on the ban that could come at any time. Judge Michael McShane said the attorney general is accountable to Oregon voters, while the group supporting marriage solely between a man and woman is not.
On Wednesday, the Arkansas Supreme Court rejected the state attorney general’s request for a stay of a judge’s ruling that overturned Arkansas’ constitutional ban on gay marriage. The Arkansas attorney general’s office was arguing that the ruling last week led to “pervasive” confusion among clerks about whether they can grant licenses to same-sex couples. (AP)

Nigerian Vigilantes Ambush Boko Haram Bauchi, Nigeria ADVICE
Don’t Buy It The Transylvanian castle falsely reputed to be the abode of the terrifying Count Dracula — and which Bram Stoker based the fictitious lair on — is now for sale. Bran Castle is set to be sold off by its Habsburg owners. The Romanian government has reportedly lodged an $80 million bid. (AP)
The villagers knew an attack was coming, so they used the dark of night to ambush the suspected Boko Haram militants, killing scores and arresting at least 10 in a move to deter the extremists and make future attacks “impossible.” Vigilante groups have been springing up in Nigeria over the past year amid accusations the military is not acting fast enough against the Islamic extremists who are holding
captive more than 270 schoolgirls. In Kalabalge, a village about 155 miles from the Borno state capital of Maiduguri, where the terrorist network was born, residents said they took matters into their own hands. On Tuesday morning, after learning about an impending attack by the militants, villagers ambushed two trucks with gunmen, residents and a security ofﬁcial said. Borno is where more than 300 girls were abducted last month and one of three Nigerian states where President Goodluck Jonathan has imposed a state of emergency, giving the military special powers to ﬁght the Islamic extremist group.

Scores killed and at least 10 arrested in early morning attack
People around the world have called for the safe return of the Nigerian girls.
Britain and the U.S. are now actively involved in the effort to rescue the missing schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram militants. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said FBI agents and a hostage negotiating team are in Nigeria now, providing technology and other materials and working with “our Nigerian counterparts to be as helpful as we possibly can.” U.S. reconnaissance aircraft are flying over Nigeria in search of the missing girls, and almost 300 Marines have been moved to a naval air station in Sicily, Italy, in response to the unrest in Africa.

Nigel Farage and his U.K. Independence Party are poised for electoral success in next week’s European parliamentary election.
Meet the U.K.’s Far-Right Party The rise of the U.K. Independence Party has shaken up British politics in a way rarely seen. Here’s a look at the far-right party that has seized on an anti-immigrant and anti-establishment mood to lead polls for next week’s European parliamentary election. Griff Witte (The washington post )

What’s UKIP and what does it want?
Who does UKIP’s message appeal to?
UKIP is steering the national debate with its calls to close down borders and abolish the European Union. The party has traditionally done well in European elections, which are held every five years to select the 751 members of the European parliament. The elections are marked by low turnout, and UKIP has struggled to translate its success in the European vote into success in British parliamentary elections. But the party has never done as well in the polls as it is now.
London sophisticates dismiss the party as racist and xenophobic. Still, the party’s message has resonated well in struggling small towns and industrial centers, where mainstream politicians are seen as out of touch with constituents furious over an influx of foreign workers. “UKIP promises a better yesterday,” said Peter Kellner, president of the polling firm YouGov. “The appeal is to people who feel that Britain has become a less attractive, less secure and more frightening place.”
The George Washington University is an equal opportunity/ affirmative action institution certified to operate in Va by SCHEV.
Nigel Farage, UKIP’s leader, is a somewhat unlikely champion of the working man. He made a small fortune as a commodities broker in London, and for the past 15 years has been a member of the European parliament. But Farage is a gifted salesman whose breezy style would not be out of place on American talk radio — or in the local pub, where he often campaigns, pint in-hand. That everyman quality places him in contrast with the stiff politicians who dominate the Labor and Conservative parties.
The big question: Is UKIP racist? Not if you ask Farage, although it’s certainly an issue with which the party has had problems. A local UKIP candidate came under fire for tweeting that black comedian Lenny Henry should move to a “black country,” after Henry said there should be more minorities in creative industries, according to the BBC. But Farage denies a problem with racism, implying that other parties planted racists in UKIP and saying he can “scarcely believe the diversity” in the party.
Ukraine Starts Peace Talks, Doesn’t Invite Foes Kiev, Ukraine

Who’s Nigel Farage?
Ukraine’s government launched talks Wednesday on decentralizing power as part of a Europeanbacked peace plan but didn’t invite its main foes, the pro-Russia insurgents who have declared independence in the east. That deliberate oversight left it unclear whether the negotia-
tions might help cool the tensions in the east. In his opening remarks, acting President Oleksandr Turchynov said authorities were “ready for a dialogue” but insisted they will not talk to the pro-Russia gunmen who have seized buildings, fought government troops across eastern Ukraine and run a referendum on separating from Kiev.
Insurgents in the east shrugged off the round-table talks as meaningless. “We haven’t received any offers to join a round table and dialogue,” said Denis Pushilin, an insurgent leader in Donetsk. “If the authorities in Kiev want a dialogue, they must come here. If we go to Kiev, they will arrest us.” YURAS K ARMANAU and NATALIYA VASILYE VA (ap)

Washington First, D.C. rushed delivery of 210,000 new garbage cans in a move criticized as an electionyear stunt. Then, it assumed residents wouldn’t want to relinquish that many old cans, leaving tens of thousands abandoned for more than a month. As residents began to revolt over the eyesore – and two were even arrested for carrying off unwanted ones — Mayor Vincent Gray last week authorized a massive expenditure of overtime to launch a
citywide trash-can clean-up “blitz.” But the “blitz,” some residents say, has gone berserk. L ess t ha n 24 hou rs a f ter announcing the rapid clean-up Friday, sanitation crews descended Saturday morning to scour upper Northwest neighborhoods where the complaints of unwanted cans had been among some of the loudest. The problem? More than a dozen residents say city crews carried off not just their smelly 10-year-old cans but their brandnew ones too, sometimes even reaching onto private property to snag any can in sight. Chevy Chase, Md., resident Dorcas Adkins chased down one crew, making them remove from a trash
Judge Seems to Doubt Budget Autonomy Bid Washington A federal judge on Wednesday expressed reservations about D.C.’s bid to gain greater spending freedom from Congress through a voter referendum, saying he sympathized with the city’s desire for greater fiscal autonomy but had doubts about whether it could be granted through the courts. After hearing three hours of oral arguments, U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan did not rule on the D.C. Council’s request to have the April 2013 referendum declared binding law and enforced by city ofﬁcials. A decision, he said, will be issued in the coming days. But Sullivan hinted that budget autonomy cannot ultimately be granted through the courts, saying he was “troubled” by the authority he might have to intervene. “It tugs at the heartstrings,” he said. “But the court can’t rule from the heart.” The unusual legal clash has pitted the Council, which believes the referendum is binding, against Mayor Vincent Gray, Chief Finan-

wood and Cleveland Park residents, the clean-up came with such little warning, residents say, that those accustomed to keeping their cans along property lines in alleys behind their homes returned from weekend activities to ﬁnd that they no longer possessed any cans — new or old. With thousands of “Take Me!” stickers the city provided for unwanted cans having fallen off, the protocol that was announced Friday calls for city crews to remove and destroy any cans that remain on city curbs or in public alleyways on a schedule that loosely follows the city’s weekly trash collection cycle. Any cans left out a day after the trash could be considered trash themselves.
Baltimore A 28-year-old man charged with ramming a truck into a Baltimore television station on Tuesday told police he is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ and King Tut and wanted to expose what he called the “multiverses” where bad things happen to people and they disappear, according to court documents filed Wednesday. Police said Vladimir Mehul Baptiste rammed through WMAR-TV’s headquarters north of Baltimore — prompting a 4½-hour standoff that knocked the ABC afﬁliate (Channel 2) off the air until after 5 p.m. — and was ﬁnally arrested as he watched newscasts of himself from an editing ofﬁce while holding a golf club. Authorities said they took Baptiste for psychiatric evaluation before charging him with three counts of attempted second-degree murder and other charges. P E T ER HER M A NN

Meanwhile … A D.C. Council committee on Wednesday scrapped plans for a new hospital east of the Anacostia River, dealing a blow to a key priority of Mayor Vincent Gray. Council member Yvette Alexander led the effort to scrap the plan for a $300 million hospital, which would have brought a major new medical center to the St. Elizabeths campus. (T WP)
cial Ofﬁcer Jeffrey DeWitt and D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan, who believe it is not. At stake is whether D.C. ofﬁcials will continue to submit their spending plan to be formally appropriated by Congress, as they have done since gaining home rule in 1975. Should the referendum be sustained, federal lawmakers would have only a passive role in approving the budget. D.C.’s budget is composed mainly of locally raised taxes. Only a small portion consists of special federal appropriations not available to states. MIKE DeBONIS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

The increase in D.C.’s homeless population from last year, for a total
of about 7,750, according to a new report. Loudoun County, Va., was the only other jurisdiction in the region that experienced an increase in homelessness. The largest drop, 39 percent, was in Arlington County. The vast majority of homeless families in the region, eight in 10, are single mothers with children. The report said the region’s homelessness is being fed by the rising cost of housing, stagnant wages and a declining supply of affordable rental units, particularly in D.C. (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Capital Bikeshare Thefts Are Unusual Most often, rides are recovered, but users can get hit with fines
“We don’t really get reports of people getting attacked … for their bike.” — K IMBERLY LUCA S, THE CAPITAL BIKESHARE PROGRAM MANAGER, ON THEFTS OF THE BIG RED BIKES. “THE STATIONS ARE INCREDIBLY SECURE,” SHE ADDED.
Washington With the warm weather in full swing, commuting by bike is picking up — and bike thefts are on the rise too. If you use Capital Bikeshare, don’t think you are immune. David Garber, an ANC commissioner for Navy Yard, recently left his Capital Bikeshare bike unattended while visiting someone in Bloomingdale. When he returned a minute later his ride was gone. The bike was returned to a Cap-
ital Bikeshare docking station in Petworth three days later, Garber said in a tweet Monday. “It *was* damaged, so I’ll be paying for that as well as capped usage fees. But overall, less exp. than the lost bike fee of $1,000. (Whew!)” he said in another tweet. Thefts of Capital Bikeshare bikes are uncommon. The bad news is that they can be costly. Under the Capital Bikeshare member agree-
ment, when a bike is kept beyond the allotted time it is deemed lost or stolen and the member is charged $1,000. In the event that the bike is stolen, the user is held responsible and must report the disappearance to Capital Bikeshare within 24 hours and ﬁle a police report. Si nc e C a pit a l Bi k e s h a r e launched in D.C. in September 2010, there have been 100 reported thefts systemwide, said Kimberly
Lucas, the Capital Bikeshare program manager with the District Department of Transportation. Of those, all but 16 bikes have been recovered, she said. Lucas said most theft cases have been situations where someone’s credit card was stolen and used to purchase a membership that was used to take a bike. In most cases the bikes have been recovered: either returned to a docking station days later or found abandoned. In cases where the user isn’t at fault, Capital Bikeshare has worked to split costs for damage, Lucas said. But members must know that if they lose a bike they can be charged. LUZ L A ZO (THE WASHINGTON POST )
Avoiding Theft Kimberly Lucas, the Capital Bikeshare program manager with the District Department of Transportation, offered some tips for users to avoid getting bikes stolen:
NEVER leave a bike unattended. Not even for “just a second.” When you dock your bike, be sure you get a green light and a “beep.” After you hear the beep, lift up on the seat of the bike and pull back. This will ensure the bike is locked in place. If you hear a grinding noise/no noise/get a red or yellow light, call customer service right away. (T WP)

How to ‘Think Like a Freak’ The brains behind ‘Freakonomics’ share world-changing tips Books Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner’s “Freakonomics,” published in 2005, has sold more than 7 million copies. The pair’s follow-up, “SuperFreakonomics,” was a bestseller, too. Both uncovered surprising relationships, such as a possible link between legalized abortion and a drop in crime in the ’90s. When it came to choosing a topic for their third book, the authors
were stumped. They nixed a straight sequel. Their next idea was “a guide to solving the world’s biggest problems,” Dubner says, which they realized was a stretch. The concept that stuck came from fans. “People write with burning questions,” Dubner says. “We thought, ‘What if, instead of trying and often failing to answer a tiny shard of the questions, we write a book that could deputize anyone in the world who wants to think like us?’ ”
Thus, “Think Like a Freak” was born. In advance of the duo’s appearance at Sixth and I on Thursday, Dubner shared a few of the book’s freaky thoughts.
Say ‘I Don’t Know’ “Until you acknowledge what you don’t know, you aren’t motivated to go out and get a lot of feedback and do a lot of experimentation,” Dubner explains. “We make a plea for people to acknowledge what they don’t know, not in the service of being a bunch of ignoramuses but in the service of embracing a spirit of inquiry.”
Put Away Your Moral Compass — at First Most people have a sense of right and wrong, “which is generally a fantastic thing,” Dubner says. But clinging to what you think you know makes you unlikely to listen to contradictory facts. For example, Dubner says, if you believe that all organic food is better than all non-organic food, you may have trouble tackling world hunger. Putting your assumptions aside for a moment would open up more options, which you can then use your moral compass to assess. “Put it away temporarily,” Dubner says, “so you can fig-
ure out not what you want to be true, but what actually is true.”
Find Inspiration in Childhood Kids have a lot of the attributes you need to think like a freak: curiosity, uninhibitedness, a willingness to ask unpopular questions, and a sense of fun as opposed to duty. “Those somehow magically evaporate from most of us by the time we’re 21,” Dubner says. “The research shows that most people, once they’re locked in as young adults, don’t really want to change their mind about things.” BETH MARLOWE (EXPRESS) Sixth and I Historic Synagogue, 600 I St. NW; Thu., 7 p.m., sold out; 202-4083100, sixthandi.org.

ON THE SPOT
I refer to what I do as my imitation of stand-up comedy that is getting better. I once expressed concern to Eugene Mirman: “I’m concerned about doing what I do in a stand-up comedy context — that people will be upset. Is what I’m doing really stand-up? I want to give the audience a good show.” Eugene kind of looked at me for a beat and said, “If you’re standing onstage and making people laugh, that’s comedy.”
John Hodgman AUTHOR, COMEDIAN, ‘THE DAILY SHOW’S’ DERANGED MILLIONAIRE, FAILED APOCALYPSE PROGNOSTICATOR
“I refer to what I do as my imitation of stand-up comedy that is getting better.”
In 2012, John Hodgman predicted the world would end. When it didn’t — as documented in his 2013 Netﬂix comedy special “Ragnarok” — he wasn’t sure what to do next. “I had staked a lot of my professional reputation on the world ending,” he says. “I really had made no plans for what would happen in my life if the world did not end.” Hodgman, 42, started hosting so-called “Secret Society” shows at a bar in Brooklyn, N.Y., where he worked on new material for small, eager crowds. The result is “I Stole Your Dad,” a loose standup show that “The Daily Show’s” deranged millionaire will perform at the Birchmere on Thursday. Are you all set to chat?
I’m DTC, down to chat. That’s a new one.
I just made it up. Rudi, you are at the birth of something big. DTC is going to be the latest useful text jargon. It’s what the kids are saying today.
I’m just gonna start saying it and it’s going to give the illusion that I’m young and relevant. What were the “Secret Society” shows that birthed “I Stole Your Dad” like?
I ended up calling the shows “Secret Society” because I chose not to announce that there would
be a comedy show. I would let people know via word of mouth and I wanted to keep the contents of what happened in there a secret, in part because I love secret societies, but mainly, though, to reduce people’s expectations of entertainment to the lowest possible level, so that I could get onstage and discover what it is I had to say. Which was?
I discovered quite a bit about myself and about what my preoccupations these days are, which include: dressing up as Ayn Rand, the many state songs of Tennessee, marijuana, how college students are beautiful
sociopaths, and my own memories of being a weird, only child — a member of the super-smart afraidof-conflict narcissist club. This is the third time you’ve played the Birchmere: Do you like the dinner theater aspect of the venue?
I love food, first of all. It’s more than just loving it: I require it to live. I literally would die without it. And I like the food that they make there. They have a great backstage with one of my favorite things in the world: a fax machine. Have you used it?
It has become something of a tradition the past couple of times I’ve been there that I will tweet out the fax number before the show, and I will highlight some of the more amusing faxes that come through. The Birchmere also has a brick wall, which is good for comedy.
I guess that’s true. I tend to face the audience when I perform, so I don’t really notice what’s behind me but this time, maybe I will. Is what you’re doing now closer to traditional stand-up comedy — less a
Will I be telling more personal stories about my life? Yes. In part to move on from the persona of the resident expert, or the deranged millionaire, to the persona of John Hodgman, famous John Hodgman impersonator. Last year, when you performed at the Birchmere, you ended up at The Passenger, a D.C. bar that you realized used to be the Warehouse Theater, where you had done some memorable book readings in 2005.
I don’t like to drop names, I love to drop names. It was Rachel Maddow who said, “You should go drink at The Passenger.” We went to the address — I was traveling with Al Madrigal from “The Daily Show” — and the minute I got out of the cab I went, “Oh, I’ve been here before.” It was a magical night because they treated us very nice and I said, “There was a theater upstairs,” and I was able to go back up into that room and remember that night where we did two shows, put away a quite a bit of bourbon and had a really good time. Those are the best shows — not that you have to put away a lot of bourbon — but those shows where you and the audience feel like you had the time of your lives.

Conferences Sure, getting a chance to see George Takei is pretty cool. But how many chances are there to get up close and personal with exoplanet expert Sara Seager? And to be able to ask her exactly what an “exoplanet” is? You can at the Smithsonian Magazine’s second The Future Is Here Festival, which is focusing on the interplay between science and science fiction. So on one hand you’ve got Mr. Sulu, who helped fly a pretend spaceship; on the other you’ve got former space shuttle flight controller Joshua Moskowitz, who helped several actual missions. “Science fiction writers for 100 years or more have been mapping out different kinds of futures,” says Smithsonian magazine editor in chief Michael Caruso. “There was this idea that you could look ahead, predict the future, and have scientists go build it.” The speakers — including explorers, authors, NASA engineers, biologists, the president of the New York State Distillers Guild and many other people who as kids wrecked the curve in science class — will spend two days giving talks and participating on panels. “It’s a bit like a TED conference,
but you don’t have to fly to California and it costs a lot less,” Caruso says. “We have so many incredible experts at the Smithsonian I thought we’d use the resources of the Smithsonian to get them out there onstage.” These won’t be droning science lectures, either. “I don’t think there’s any dichotomy between smart and interesting,” Caruso says. “There’s nothing more fun than hearing people who are really smart. And the diversity of it — you can sit in one place and go all over the Earth and all over outer space.” And it’s not all sitting and learning. Sometimes there’s drinking and learning! The Sunday session was co-produced by Nerd Nite, a group that brings science into bars in more than 75 cities. “It’s a group devoted to science and alcohol,” Caruso says. “Not necessarily in that order.” And, since the weekend’s about the future, there will be jetpacks. “We’re going to have a guy f lying a jetpack outside the Reagan Building,” Caruso says. “The Secret Service wasn’t crazy about that. If the guy goes up too high they will shoot him. I think that will add an element of drama.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

NATIONAL GALLERY OF ART
When the National Gallery of Art underwent renovations a few years ago, curator Kimberly Jones took down a painting by Mary Cassatt. The 1878 masterpiece, “Little Girl in a Blue Armchair,” was looking “a little dingy,” Jones recalls. After some preliminary tests, conservators removed a layer of yellowing varnish, and the painting came alive. “We uncovered the most glorious, sumptuous paint surface you can imagine. It’s absolutely spectacular, rich and lush and vibrant,” Jones says. “Before, you couldn’t really appreciate the richness of the texture and the variety of the paint strokes.” Something curious also came to light: A small patch of brush strokes that didn’t look like the American impressionist’s handiwork at all. “There are these little horizontal strokes of greyish paint, and you don’t see anything like that in the rest of the painting, but you do see it in Degas,” Jones says. Art historians have long known that Cassatt and French impressionist Edgar Degas worked closely together in Paris, and many thought their relationship was one of mentor and student — due, in part, to the fact that Degas was 10 years older than Cassatt. The new NGA exhibit “Degas/Cassatt” shows that they were actually colleagues, pushing each other to reach greater artistic heights, Jones says. Degas’ work on “Little Girl in a Blue Armchair” is an excellent case in point, Jones says. Cassatt said in a letter circa 1903 that Degas helped with the painting, but what he specifically did, no one knew. Infrared analysis shows that Cassatt originally painted the scene with a single wall in the back. Degas (presum-

ably) turned part of that wall into a corner, adding depth. This small change may have helped Cassatt transform a pretty good painting into a great one, Jones says. “What Degas did was very discrete, very subtle, and then he left it to her to resolve,” Jones says. Cassatt had to make adjustments to accommodate the wall’s new angle. She ended up with a more-dynamic arrangement that enhanced her bold statement about childhood. At a time when most
At some point, Cassatt tried placing a second dog toward the back of the room, perhaps in an attempt to make that wall seem farther away.
Cassatt hid her original line by raising the back of the girl’s chair. She left heavy blue paintstrokes to give viewers a peek into her painting process, curator Kimberly Jones says.
“[Degas] is really involved in this painting even before he even touches the canvas,” Jones says: The girl was Degas’ friend’s daughter.
50 Shades of Nothing It’s the setup for a great bodice-ripper: Two hot-headed painters working in close quarters during Belle Epoch Paris. Unfortunately, there isn’t a shred of evidence that Mary Cassatt and Edgar Degas were anything more than friends, curator Kimberly Jones says. “There’s nothing. No sly comments, no wry observations in letters, no asides. If something were going on, somebody would have said something. Artists are terrible gossips,” she says. In fact, the more Cassatt overturned conventions in her paintings, the more conservative she had to be in her personal life. “She was already risking her reputation, just by being an artist and by hanging out with these crazy impressionists,” Jones says. “If there had been even one whiff of impropriety, she wouldn’t have been taken seriously as a painter.” S.D.

painters depicted children as living dolls, Cassatt captured a little girl in glorious, disheveled reality. Inspiration ran both ways. In “Woman Standing Holding a Fan” (1878-1879), Cassatt employed metallic and matte paint at a time when respectable artists exclusively worked in oil. Degas responded by using metallic paint and three different kinds of matte mediums in “Portrait After a Costume Ball” (1879). “They are doing a little oneupmanship on each other,” Jones says. “I think that is the fun part about the relationship.” The two sharp-tongued artists had their differences and occasional falling-outs, Jones says, but their mutual respect and admiration always won out in the end.

Tugging at 14 Heart Strings Aaron Grad is in love with love songs, and his electric theorbo
Grad’s electric theorbo
Aaron Grad is the world’s greatest electric theorbo player. “Sadly, I’m also the worst,” he says. A theorbo is a type of lute invented in 16th-century Italy; Grad built his electric version in 2012, in about nine months. He’ll debut his double-necked, 14-stringed, Kickstarter-funded creation Thursday at Strathmore Mansion. He’s just about got the hang of it, he says. “It’s a lot to juggle,” says the guitarist and composer, whose background spans rock, jazz and classical music. “It requires a very wide stretch in the right hand. I’m

mostly grabbing the bass notes with my thumb and then plucking the remaining strings with my fingers.” Building the instrument gave Grad time to ponder what he wanted to say with “Old-Fashioned Love Songs,” the concert he’s performing at Strathmore. “I believe that love has always been the same, and love songs have always been the same. I don’t see divisions between baroque love songs and jazz love songs,” he says. With that in mind, he selected 10 love songs from the past 400 years and rewrote them for electric theorbo and countertenor. (Augustine Mercante will accompany Grad on vocals Thursday). Grad rounded out the song cycle with 10 original compositions. T he songs move in order, through history and through the course of a romantic relationship,
starting with “Come again! sweet love doth now invite” from 1597. Grad first heard it in a music history class at New York University, sitting next to the woman who would become his wife. From the first song to the last — Nora Jones’ “Come Away With Me” — the performance is dedicated to Grad’s wife, Jen. The most personal song, Grad says, is “Battle Cry.” The lyrics, about idealized love’s constant clashes with humdrum reality, capture an experience Grad had back when he was beginning to build his theorbo. “There I am, doing my woodworking in the garage, and I realize I’m aggravating my wife’s asthma tracking sawdust into the house while building an instrument so I can express my love for her.” SADIE DINGFELDER (E XPRESS)

Long story short: The movie looks REALLY FREAKING COOL. The content, mostly about dark matter, is also really freaking cool.

burn up energy. “If I’m doing a boogie woogie, my arms are busy,” she says. “Even singing requires something similar to an aerobic-style workout. If I’m playing a ballad in a chilly room or outside, I don’t need a jacket. I get hot doing it.” Brent, who performs at Hill Country Live on Thursday, started piano lessons at 5 but didn’t find her style until she started studying with the great bluesman Abie “Boogaloo” Ames. She first met him when he played at her sister’s wedding, and, when she was 19, she asked if he’d give her lessons. “He taught me the critical use of the bass line,” she says. “A lot of people who listen to boogie woogie think they’re responding to ‘tickling the ivories’ … but what they’re really responding to is that grooving bass line.” Brent, who’s now 48 (“it’s on the damned Internet — there isn’t any point in me lying about it”) says her playing honors Ames’ art form — a style she’s thrilled that audiences still get into. “Even little babies will dance,” she says. Brent’s husky, dusky voice sounds as if it’s winking at the audience — and as if it smoked too many cigarettes and drank too much booze. “I drink just about everything you can imagine,” she says. “I come from a long line of heavy drinking. We drink when we’re sad or happy. I think a lot of river communities love to drink.” And yes, she is a smoker: “It seems so unpopular now,” she says. “It’s almost like if you say you smoke pot you would get a better response than if you say you smoked cigarettes.” MARC SILVER (FOR E XPRESS)

1 Dottie Hinson In 1992 we all learned about the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, thanks to “A League of Their Own.” And thanks to Geena Davis’ character we learned that it is possible, if not advisable, to play catcher in a skirt.
2 Amanda Whurlitzer The centerpiece of the team in 1976’s “The Bad News Bears,” Amanda (Tatum O’Neal) has a wicked arm and a wickeder mouth, which fits in with Little League, a wholesome activity for kids.

Angel Olsen’s advice: If you’re sad and you know it, high-five!

Visit the Farms, Markets and Wineries of Loudoun County, VA
Between Two Eras Old soul Angel Olsen has an ear tuned toward the future Music “I feel so lonesome I could cry,” Angel Olsen sings on “Hi-Five,” a standout track off her latest album, “Burn Your Fire for No Witness.” After she wrote it, Olsen, 27, thought to herself: “I think that’s in a song already.” Well, it’s basically the title of one of Hank Williams’s most oft-covered standards, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry.” But where Williams wallowed in his loneliness, Olsen wryly celebrates it: “Are you lonely, too?” she howls over crunchy guitar. “Hi-five, so am I!” The song is at once reverent and rebellious, caught between eras. “Because I’m changing where the direction goes,” Olsen says, “I feel like I’m going back in time and then waking up from that and being like, ‘This is how it would be now, if these type of songs were written now.’ ” With her haunting warble, the indie-folk artist updates the happy-
go-lovelorn twang of Patsy Cline, Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood with a visceral existential angst. “The way that I sing, the things that inspire me are definitely from the past and the future,” Olsen says. “I feel like it’s OK to experiment and just embrace it, instead of running from it.” Olsen, who was ra ised in St. Louis, Mo., by foster parents roughly 50 years her senior, has an affinity for the older music played in her childhood home. “I was listening to ’90s music, or I was listening to ’50s and ’60s music,” Olsen says. “It just stuck with me. [Back then] people sang really beautiful harmonies. The words were really clever and there were really intelligently written country songs that were poppy and
“Everybody’s been a little depressed in their life. As long as anybody writes a depressing song, somebody is gonna relate to it.”
addressed certain things that were really funny.” But Olsen’s relentlessly brooding lyrics and tone on “Burn Your Fire” create an eerie tension between her stark songcraft and the wistfulness of the oldies she pays tribute to. “I think, ‘Wow, this is really dark sometimes,’ ” Olsen says. “But is it dark? Or is it just that somebody is giving it power by putting it into a song? People think about these things all the time, they just don’t sing about [them].” Olsen’s raw honestly helps her connect with an audience. “Ever ybody’s been a little depressed in their life,” she says. “As long as anybody writes a depressing song, somebody is gonna relate to it. Pain is just easier to describe. If you were to describe happiness, then you might dissect it into nothingness and then you wouldn’t be happy because you’ve dissected it.” Instead, Olsen carefully mines enlightenment from despair. Who wouldn’t high-five to that? DREW LITOWITZ (FOR E XPRESS)

fruit juice and dry slate riesling, which has a natural mineral-like finish thanks to the chalky soil in which the grapes are grown ($11). Wilder says the rock essence adds “a seamless effervescence” to the slushes and masks the taste of alcohol. Make no mistake, these are potent cocktails. Wilder estimates that at least 3 ounces of liquor goes into each, despite the fact that they taste closer to a virgin punch with a slightly metallic finish. I can attest: It wasn’t until I had a difficult time maneuvering my bar stool that I remembered I’d been drinking alcohol. And needless to say, all those cocktails made my memory of the night a bit rocky.
River rock powder gives three cocktails at Red Light a head-scratching flavor Red Light, the new cocktail and confectionery on 14th Street NW, has a trio of boozy slushes with an unlikely ingredient: rocks. Micah Wilder, who oversees Red Light’s cocktail program with his brother Ari, traces the inspiration for the slushes back to a traumatic experience he had at Yosemite National Park. While swimming at the top of a steep waterfall, he inhaled a mouthful of water and, after establishing that he was still breathing, realized the limestonelaced liquid wasn’t that bad. “My ideas develop in a real-
ly chaotic manner,” he says. No kidding. To translate this rattling experience into something with mass appeal, Wilder dissolves river rock powder (a blend of more than 10 minerals) in a house-made honey syrup. The concoction is then mixed with a seasonal nectar and frozen into a block. When guests order one of the slushes, the big ice cube is shaved down using a New Orleans-style snoball maker. Depending on which cocktail you choose, gin, tequila or vodka is added, along with fresh

Spicy Pork Wontons Available at Bob’s Shanghai 66
SUN, JUNE 8
The menu at this Chinese restaurant is a mire of unfamiliar words and ingredients. So when a picture of the spicy pork wontons ($6.95) flashed across a TV in the dining room that rotates the kitchen’s offerings, I was able to point and say, “That. I’d like that.” What I didn’t realize is that the best part of the dish isn’t even visible: a puree of garlic and ginger at the bottom that cools off the drizzle of house-made jalapeno pepper oil.

Is It Worth the Carbs? Somewhere along the way, bread became Waistline Enemy No. 1. Which makes the opening of Bread Furst — a beautiful new bakery from Mark Furstenberg of Marvelous Market and BreadLine fame — so bittersweet (4434 Connecticut Ave. NW; 202-765-1200, breadfurst.com). Sure, you’ll find pre-made salads and seasonal soups, but the main draw is undeniably the crispy, chewy, screw-the-skinny-jeans bread and pastries. Here’s our “eat sheet” to help you decide what’s worth the indulgence. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS) EVERYTHING BAGEL, $1.75

Skip it and go for the cream cheese
If you hold the sugar in your coffee
New York bagel purists will be disappointed to learn that Bread Furst’s are made in the traditional Montreal style, which means they’re smaller with a tight crumb. Even slathered with cream cheese (which was delicious), I didn’t feel compelled to finish. Crowds beg to differ: “We made 80 bagels for opening day and they sold out in one hour,” says head baker Ben Arnold.
Crumbly, sweet and laced with citrus, the orange poppy muffin begs to be eaten alongside a cup of strong java. It’s less tart than its more common relative — the lemon poppy muffin — and reflects the season’s bounty. “We’re having a hard time finding seasonal fruit right now,” pastry chef Jack Revelle says, “so we’re working with a lot of citrus. Strawberries are next.”
Bread Furst’s English muffins are made using a 30-year-old sourdough starter, which gives it a welldeveloped tanginess. Though the center is more plateau than nooks and crannies, it’s springy and easy to chew. The rounds are made fresh every morning, when they’re quickly seared on the griddle and finished in the oven.
Dead Rise FLYING DOG BREWERY, FREDERICK, MD. Flying Dog’s Dead Rise Old Bay Summer Ale doesn’t hit you over the head with Maryland’s most iconic spice. The seasoning adds a subtle bitterness and oceanic aroma to what is otherwise a golden-hued, crisp summer ale, developed to celebrate Old Bay’s 75th anniversary. It’s a very drinkable beer — perfect for a Memorial Day crab boil or an afternoon on the water. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)
Style: Summer ale
ChurchKey will pour pints of Dead Rise for the beer’s official launch party, along with other Flying Dog brews, including: Bloodline Blood Orange Ale, Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout, and a rare cask of Mint Chocolate Stout.

Alcohol by Volume: 5.6% Pairings: If you’d put Old Bay on it — crabs, shrimp — it’ll pair with Dead Rise. Available: Six-packs of bottles will be in D.C. Memorial Day weekend through September. Visit flyingdogbrewery .com/beer-finder for full availability.

Sports A Home-Court Disadvantage?
Wizards’ Rescue Plan It’s been hard to spot any trends in the Wizards-Pacers series. Washington shot 32.9 percent and scored 63 points in a Game 3 loss. Two games later, the Wizards made 50 percent of their shots and scored 102 points in a blowout win. And the opposing centers, Roy Hibbert and Marcin Gortat, have been erratic as well. Hibbert was scoreless in Game 1, then went for a team-high 28 points in Game 2. Gortat was 3-for-10 with six points in Games 3 and 4 combined, then he erupted for 31 points on 13-for-15 shooting Tuesday night. Throughout the up-and-down series, though, it’s become clear that four factors have proven essential to the Wizards winning. JEFFREY TOMIK (E XPRESS)
Make More Free Throws
Dominate The Boards
Don’t Let Stephenson Get Involved
During the regular season, the Wizards ranked 25th in the league in free-throw percentage (73.1), and they have gotten worse in the postseason. Out of the 16 NBA playoff teams, Washington is last in free-throw percentage this postseason at 68.7. In Games 2 and 3 of this series vs. the Pacers, both Wizards losses, Washington went a combined 16-for-33 (48.5 percent) from the line. In the Wizards’ two wins this series, they went 37-for-50 (74.0 percent).
The Wizards have won the rebounding battle in four of the five games in this series, but they were a plus-56 on the boards in their two wins and only a plus-four in their three losses. Just outrebounding the Pacers won’t be enough for the Wizards to win; Washington needs to dominate the boards to beat Indiana. The focus should be on Hibbert, who had just two total rebounds in the Wizards’ two wins and 23 in the Pacers’ three victories.
Pacers guard Lance Stephenson hasn’t scored more than 12 points in any game this series, but his effect on the Pacers can be measured in other ways. In Indiana’s three victories, he averaged 7.7 rebounds and 5.3 assists. In the Wizards’ two wins, he averaged 3.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Stephenson is a versatile swingman who can be a facilitator on offense — taking pressure off George Hill — while also helping the frontcourt on the boards.
4 Keep Their Distance The Wizards have shown that they struggle down the stretch, letting Games 2 and 4 slip away from them late. Of their six playoff victories, only one was by fewer than six points. Meanwhile, three of the Wizards’ four playoff losses were by four points or less. If they could close out games, the Wizards would already be in the Eastern Conference finals. If the game is close with under a minute to play, the advantage will be in the hands of Paul George and the Pacers.
If the Wizards are going to become the ninth team in NBA history to overcome a 3-1 playoff deficit, they’re going to have to win at a place that has given them fits this postseason — Verizon Center. Sounds strange, but tonight’s Game 6 vs. the Pacers (8 p.m., ESPN) might be at the worst possible place for the Wizards, who are down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference semiﬁnals. “Quite honestly we struggle at home,” center Marcin Gortat said after Washington’s Game 5 win. “It’s going to be pressure on us because we have to win at home.” The Wizards won just 22 games at home this season — the fewest of the eight East playoff qualiﬁers — and are 1-3 thus far in the postseason, including last Friday’s embarrassing 63-point performance and last Sunday’s squandering of a 19-point lead. On the other hand, the Wizards captured 22 road contests this year — tied for the most among Eastern playoff squads — and have played some of their best games in these playoffs in hostile environments. “I think we’re a lot more focused and I think it’s always great to play against another crowd,” guard Bradley Beal said. Washington coach Randy Wittman said he didn’t make much of the disparity between his team’s play on the road and at home. “The bottom line is we’re down 3-2 and we have to win two games,” Wittman said. “The guys know what they are capable of doing, whether we are at home or on the road. That has to be the main focus.” The Wizards will have a crowd of more than 20,000 on their side for Game 6, but they may have to wind up treating it like a road game to avoid elimination. “We have to keep the same mentality — we’re cornered and we have to ﬁght our way out of that corner,” forward Trevor Ariza said.

Ian Desmond and Tyler Moore each lined two-run singles in the ninth inning to break open a close game, helping the Nationals beat the Diamondbacks 5-1 on Wednesday. Nationals starter Doug Fister locked into a pitcher’s duel with Brandon McCarthy before Washington poured it on in the ninth. Washington loaded the bases against Brad Ziegler (0-1) and Desmond ended the right-hander’s scoreless streak at 181 ⁄ 3 innings with a single through the hole on the left side. Moore made it 5-1 with a broken-bat single up the middle. Jayson Werth homered in the seventh and Tyler Clippard (4-2) tossed one scoreless inning for Washington. Aaron Hill homered and made several spectacular plays at second
base for the Diamondbacks. Fister was sharp after a rough debut for the Nationals. Acquired from Detroit in an offseason trade, the right-hander spent the ﬁrst six weeks on the disabled list with a back strain. He returned Saturday against Oakland and was hit hard, allowing seven runs and nine hits in 42 ⁄ 3 innings. Fister worked around a couple of baserunners the ﬁrst three innings until Hill, swinging on a 3-0 pitch, hit a drive to left for his fourth home run of the season. Fister allowed five hits and struck out six before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the eighth inning. McCarthy was hit hard by the White Sox on Saturday, giving up seven runs and nine hits in 31 ⁄ 3 innings. But the veteran right-hander was sharp against the Nationals. Keeping them off balance with a big breaking curveballs, McCarthy was perfect until Desmond led off the ﬁfth inning with an inﬁeld single up the middle. (AP)

Bye, Baba Wawa Tomorrow, Barbara Walters says goodbye to “The View” and 50-plus years of regular TV gigs. It’s easy to forget that before Walters became an object of parody (See: SNL, Baba Wawa), the sometimes daffy Mother Hen of “The View” and the power behind the frequently unfascinating “10 Most Fascinating People” of the year specials, she was a barrier-breaking journalist who went where women had never gone: “Today” By Marc show co-host, nightly Silver news co-anchor, a journalist whose keen intelligence and unmatched persistence got the truly big gets, from Richard Nixon to Monica Lewinsky to Vladimir Putin. So let us salute 84-year-old Walters and reveal, in her own words, the secrets of great television conversation: “When you’re interviewing someone, you’re in control. When you’re being interviewed, you think you’re in control, but you’re not.” “Wait for those unguarded moments. Relax the mood and, like the child dropping off to sleep, the subject often reveals his truest self.” A sense of humor helps, too. And though Walters said she first hated the SNL lampoon, she later admitted “it was pwetty funny.” Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
In ‘Chef,’ actor-director Jon Favreau tackles restaurant critics and Cuban sandwiches Film Judging from “Chef,” you might think that Jon Favreau has a problem with critics. In the film (which Favreau wrote, directed and stars in), he plays Carl Casper, a chef at a nice, safe restaurant who longs to do more innovative things but ﬁnds himself locked in a prison made of ﬁlet mignon and molten lava cake. When a powerful food critic (Oliver Platt) calls Carl out on his lack of creativity, Carl freaks out at him. It’s easy to see “Chef,” out locally Friday, as a metaphor for ﬁlmmaking itself, examining the struggle between wanting to pay the bills with crowd pleasers versus remaining true to oneself as an artist, as well as the newfound power of social media to build up or tear down nearly anything on the planet. Favreau says, though, that the expletive-laden spew of shout that comes from Carl isn’t a reﬂection of any distaste for critics. “Food and movie critics, especially the ones who are educated in the ﬁeld, they care as deeply as the artist on the art form they’re commenting on,” says Favreau, who rose to prominence by writing and starring in the 1996 indie “Swingers” and lately is best known for helming “Iron Man” and “Iron Man 2.” “But with reviews, it’s all chefs have —

“Reviews … [are] all chefs have — it’s their Michelin stars that deﬁnes them.” — JON FAV RE AU, WHO PLAYS A CHEF WHO CLASHES WITH A POWERFUL FOOD CRITIC IN “CHEF,” WHICH HE ALSO WROTE AND DIRECTED
it’s their Michelin stars that deﬁnes them because there is no box ofﬁce.” For the ﬁlm, Favreau learned how to live a chef’s life from Roy Choi, the founder of the Kogi BBQ food truck in Los Angeles, which is largely credited for starting the modern food truck craze. “I wrote [the script] and the people I worked with said, ‘You should
talk to this guy.’ He basically lived out all the different steps” from a comfortable career as a chef to a big downfall to finding success in the back of a van, Favreau says. “He trained me, he came up with the menu, it’s all his food.” Choi’s personality shows through in the cubanos he made for El Jefe, Carl’s food truck in the ﬁlm, but the
chef had to restrain himself at times. “The hard part for him was making food that wasn’t supposed to look all that good,” like the rather pedestrian dishes Carl serves at the restaurant, Favreau says. “Those dishes were all good food, but they weren’t meant to be as vibrant and exciting,” Favreau says. “[Choi] is very quick to say to all the chefs who see this movie, ‘You understand that’s not me, right?’ Chefs are the most impatient perfectionists I’ve ever met and people love them for it. That’s what leads to perfection and pride.” KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)
Show Choirs Across America Collectively Faint: Neil Patrick Harris told Howard Stern on Wednesday that CBS approached him about hosting “The Late Show,” but he declined. “I think I would get bored of the repetition fast,” Harris told Stern. He said he would prefer to do a variety show. “A weekly thing you’d have more time to prep for stuff … you could flesh it out more.” Harris said CBS President Les Moonves was interested in the idea.

‘Xscape’ is an uneven mix of updated songs from Michael Jackson Album Review When it comes to finishing the unfinished music of a dead perfectionist, one couldn’t hope to do much better than executive producer L.A. Reid has done with “Xscape,” the second posthumous album from the late Michael Jackson. Out this week, the recording unearthed eight previously unreleased songs from the Jackson vault, presenting them in their original and spiffy “contemporized” forms.
By “contemporized,” Reid means he hired a squad of top-ﬂight producers — including Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and others — to compose new music around a grab bag of vocal tracks Jackson recorded between 1983 and 1999. The album’s highlight comes right away with “Love Never Felt So Good,” a lush disco tune originally co-written with Paul Anka. “All right, that’s ﬁne,” Jackson utters at the end of the song, signaling his approval to a studio engineer back in ’83 after a strong take. It’s a cool peek behind the curtain that Jackson persistently kept closed, but was it included here to signal his consent from the other side? According to Billboard, Timba-

land claims to have actually heard the spirit of Jackson give him the thumbs-up during the making of “Xscape” — namely, while he was replacing the breeze-bent synth lines of “Loving You” with a more 2014-friendly bump of bass. As for the original “Love Never Felt So Good,” it’s spare and spellbinding — just Jackson’s voice, a piano, some snapping ﬁngers and two clapping hands. Unfortunately, “Xscape” closes out with a third version of the song, featuring a chirpy Justin Timberlake and his huffy, puffy beatboxing. Listen until the end and you might expect to hear Jackson say, “All right, that’s enough.” CHRIS RICHARDS (THE WASHINGTON POST )

Conﬂict arose a couple of weeks ago when it was realized that the pop singer was scheduled to perform at the Verizon Center the same night a possible Game 6 in the NBA playoffs would occur. Gaga’s concert was rescheduled and, wouldn’t you know it, the Wizards have forced a Game 6 for tonight. Thanks, Mother Monster!
the surprising news that CBS has passed on the “How I Met Your Mother” spinoff.
