GET IT? STUFFED?
‘And My Hippo Friend Here Will Have the Stuffed Clams’ Dinner for one? Don’t be sad. One restaurant chain in Japan understands that it can be lonely eating alone and seats its solo diners with stuffed animal companions.

The dinner companions are called Moomins, white hippo-like characters created by Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, CNN reports. (EXPRESS) PET DETECTIVE

Primary Winners, Losers
Six states voted in primary elections Tuesday, the biggest single day of voting before the November midterm elections. With so many races and candidates — not to mention outside groups — at play, there were many winners and losers. Let’s dig deeper into the results. CHRIS CILLIZZ A (THE WASHINGTON POST ) WINNERS National Republican Senatorial Committee: It’s been a very good May for the committee. First, North Carolina state House Speaker Thom Tillis, seen as the most electable GOP candidate against Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan, won the nomination May 6. Then, Tuesday night, Mitch McConnell easily dispatched a tea party challenge in Kentucky, and the two most electable Republicans — David Perdue and Rep. Jack Kingston — advanced to a runoff in Georgia. The committee has thrived in the primary season so far — a far cry from where it stood in 2010 and 2012.
LOSERS Mitch McConnell: The guy just wins races. McConnell understood the threat that Matt Bevin posed and never let his foot off the gas pedal. His victory doesn’t change the fact that he faces the toughest race of his life this fall , but he deserves credit for taking a potentially competitive primary and turning it into a laugher. Saul Shorr and Anna Greenberg: The media consultant and pollster behind businessman Tom Wolf’s successful campaign for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in Pennsylvania steered a first-time candidate to a win.
Tea Party: It’s not just that tea-party candidates are losing, it’s how they’re losing. Matt Bevin, who once looked like a credible candidate, wound up in the final days of the race fending off charges of attending a cockfight. Bryan Smith in Idaho ran such a poor campaign that the Club For Growth decided to walk away. Neither Phil Gingrey nor Paul Broun, two tea-party favorites, came anywhere close to contention in Georgia. These candidacies are not slowly disappearing into nothing; they are exploding like the death of a star.
Allyson Schwartz: The congresswoman entered the Pennsylvania gubernatorial primary as the clear front-runner to be the Democratic nominee. And then, nothing. Tom Wolf went on TV with ads painting himself as an outsider and by the time Schwartz realized she had a problem, it was too late. Former members of Congress: Marjorie Margolies didn’t come close to winning back her old seat in Philadelphia. And Mark Critz, who represented southwestern Pennsylvania, placed a distant second in the race for lieutenant governor.
Obama on VA Problems: ‘I Will Not Tolerate It’ Washington President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he had ordered his top deputies to complete their review of what has gone wrong in the Veterans Affairs’ health system within a month, adding that if veterans are not receiving the care they deserve, “I will not stand for it.” Obama said he had ordered VA Secretary Eric Shinseki to complete his preliminary review of long wait times and false record-keeping at VA medical centers in several states by next week. His deputy chief of staff, Rob Nabors, will ﬁnalize his report within a month. “So if these allegations prove to be true, it is dishonorable, it is disgraceful, and I will not tolerate it, period,” the president said. “Once we know the facts, I assure you if there is misconduct it will be punished.” Obama delivered a strong endorsement of the embattled Shinseki, saying he had helped improve veterans’ care and services over the past ﬁve years and was dedicated to helping his fellow soldiers. “Ric Shinseki has been a great soldier. He himself is a disabled veteran, and nobody cares more about our veterans than Ric Shinseki,” he said. R e p u b l i c a n s q u e s t i on e d

President Barack Obama also defended his own record on veterans’ issues.
Meanwhile … The House on Wednesday approved a bill to give the Veterans Affairs secretary more authority to fire or demote senior executives at the agency. The bill now goes to the Senate. The White House says it supports the goal of seeking greater accountability at the VA but has unspecified concerns about the legislation. (AP)

World Gone Viral
U.S. Troops Join in Nigeria Search 80 service members to help hunt by air for abducted schoolgirls
“It’s beyond sad these kids were arrested for trying to spread happiness.” — Pharrell Williams (@Pharrell), tweeting late Tuesday about the arrest of six young people in Iran after a video was posted online of them dancing to Williams’ hit song “Happy.” Laws in Iran ban women from dancing in public or appearing without the hijab. Iran also bans some websites. Those arrested said the video was not meant to be posted online.
The U.S. has deployed 80 military personnel to Chad to help locate the nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Islamic extremist group Boko Haram last month, President Barack Obama said Wednesday. Obama, in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and the Senate, notiﬁed lawmakers about the latest steps underway to assist in the return of the abducted girls. Obama said the service members will help with intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance aircraft for missions over northern Nige-

China Inks $400B Gas Deal With Russia
NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED – RAIN OR SHINE
May is National Stroke Awareness Month. Stroke is our nation’s number four killer and a leading cause of disability for older adults.*
The agreement calls for Russian governmentcontrolled Gazprom to supply stateowned China National Petroleum Corp. with 38 billion cubic meters of gas annually. That would represent about a quarter of China’s current annual gas consumption of nearly 150 billion cubic meters. The contract is worth $400 billion, Gazprom’s CEO told Russian news agencies. Gas is due to begin flowing to China as early as 2018.
The deal gives Moscow an economic boost at a time when Washington and the European Union have imposed visa bans and asset freezes on Russian officials and companies over the Ukraine crisis. It also allows Russia to diversify its markets for gas, which now goes mostly to Europe.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew appealed to China last week to avoid taking steps that might offset sanctions. However, U.S. officials have acknowledged China’s pressing need for energy. Alexei Pushkov, head of the foreign affairs committee of the Russian parliament’s lower house, said on Twitter: “The 30-year gas contract with China is of strategic significance. Obama should give up the policy of isolating Russia: It will not work.”

ria and the nearby region. He says the force will stay in Chad until its support is no longer necessary. Chad shares a portion of its western border with northeastern Nigeria. According to Lt. Col. Myles Caggins, the 80 U.S. military personnel will help expand drone searches of the region. Caggins said this latest deployment will not involve ground searches by the troops.
China signed a landmark 30-year deal Wednesday to buy Russian natural gas, giving a boost to diplomatically isolated Russian President Vladimir Putin and expanding Moscow’s ties with Asia. Politically, the deal has provided breathing space for Russia, which can demonstrate it’s not completely isolated because of the Ukraine crisis. LOUISE WAT T AND VL ADIMIR ISACHENKOV (AP)

Avoid the Rush Heading North? For those headed north toward Baltimore or out to Interstate 270, the worst will come after 4 p.m. Friday as everyday commuters enter the mix. To the beach? Heading for Ocean City, Md., during the worst of the rush — between 2 and 4 p.m. Friday — will add about three hours to the trip, Inrix said. South?

They will be among 36 million people nationwide who plan to travel 50 miles or more from home this weekend, AAA said. It’s estimated that 382 of them will die in trafﬁc crashes and 40,900 who survive crashes will end up in emergency rooms, according to the
National Safety Council. “Sadly, we know this long holiday weekend will end with too many preventable deaths and injuries,” said Deborah Hersman, president of the National Safety Council and former chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board. “We issue these estimates to draw attention to risks on the roadways and encourage drivers to take extra precautions so needless tragedies can be prevented.” The Transportation Security Administration says it expects 2.6 million airline passengers to pass through its airport security checkpoints this weekend.

Girl and 25-year-old injured at playground in D.C.’s Park View Washington
The man came to the playground with a gun. He entered through a gate, walked past the swings, and began shooting when he reached the jungle gym. One shot, then a pause, then a burst from the gun. About a dozen children dropped to the ground as bullets ﬂew over and by them. Parents and their neighbors, watching from apartments surrounding the courtyard in Park View, near Petworth, screamed

Another pierced the little girl’s left leg, passing through just below her knee. Khalia Smalley said she heard the pops and then felt pain. Other than that, she knows little of what happened as she played with a friend Tuesday evening steps from her apartment in the Park Morton public housing complex off Georgia Avenue NW. Khalia, recovering at Children’s National Medical Center, was patched up and given a walker. Her mother said she should fully recov-

ﬁnd: “Why did you do this to me?” A woman who saw most of the shooting from her window overlooking the playground described a chaotic scene, and said she thought the gunman was aiming at a man who climbed a fence and got away. “The kids were crying but the guy didn’t care. He kept shooting,” said the 27-year-old, who did not want her name published because nobody is yet in custody. The shooting was only the latest incident of violence in a community of run-down buildings, many of them boarded, where residents have long waited for a promised overhaul that has been delayed since 2009.

Paper Fare Card Sales May End Washington The capital budget scheduled for approval by the Metro board on Thursday includes a plan to end the sale of paper fare cards and convert all riders to SmarTrip cards. Most riders have made the switch already. About 93 percent of rail users are paying with SmarTrip. Under the program in the Fiscal Year 2015 capital budget, Metro would convert the newer fare-vending machines so that they would dispense only the SmarTrip cards. The equipment change-over would take about a year and a half, Metro spokesman Dan Stessel said. ROBERT THOMSON (THE WASHINGTON POST)

Popular School Official Gets Prom Invite Vienna After publicly accepting an invitation to go to the Madison High School prom with a 17-year-old student, a popular Fairfax County School Board member has scaled back his plans for the event. Ryan McElveen, 28, received the invitation from a Madison senior via a public tweet that showed her holding a poster that read “RYAN BE MYAN Prom?” McElveen accepted the invitation by replying on Twitter: “It’s gonna get cray cray at Madison’s prom this year. I said yes.” McElveen has since decided against attending the prom, but he will still make a brief appearance. “After discussions with the stu-
Backstory … Ryan McElveen had said his planned attendance would be similar to recent celebrities who have accepted Twitter invitations from teens. Earlier this year, a Texas student asked a Houston Texans NFL cheerleader to prom and she accepted. Snowboarder Shaun White surprised a student in Philadelphia this month when he showed up at her prom. Even Vice President Joe Biden has received an elaborate “promposal.” He declined to attend but sent a corsage. (T WP)
dent and administration I ﬁgured my attendance would be more of a distraction and take away from students’ enjoyment of the event,” McElveen said Wednesday. McElveen’s popularity among Fairfax County teens is unrivaled on the school board. He now has 22,900 Twitter followers — nearly three-quarters as many as the
school system’s official account, which has 31,400. When he visits schools, McElveen is often mobbed by students seeking selﬁes with him. McElveen, who is married, conﬁrmed that he had planned to attend the prom. Instead, he will make a cameo appearance to take photos and does not intend to stay for long. In messages with The Washing-
ton Post, the student wrote that she believed McElveen simply would be attending the dance much like other celebrities have attended proms. “Mr. McElveen is in no way whatsoever my ‘date’ because I believe that would be extremely inappropriate,” the student wrote. Schools spokesman John Torre said that the administration has no formal policy regarding school ofﬁcials attending student events. Su s a n W i s s e m a n , pr e s ident of the Madison PTSA, said that adults should lead teens by example. She said that her teenage daughter pointed out that even Miley Cyrus had declined a fan’s invitation to attend prom. T. REES SHAPIRO (THE WASHINGTON POST )
“It was anything it took to make this story go away … and it won’t go away.” — William Howland, director of the D.C. Department of Public Works, taking responsibility for the improper disposal of thousands of unwanted D.C. trash cans. He ordered crews to collect the cans after complaints about unwanted bins crowding streets. When the cans were compacted, he said, they became mangled, making it impossible to remove metal parts to recycle them. Mayor Vincent Gray expressed “regret” Wednesday over the ongoing issues surrounding the replacement effort.

A Stark Reality? In the 2008 movie “Iron Man,” Tony Stark becomes a superhero after building a suit of armor with an exoskeleton that gives him incredible strength. Today, elite U.S. special operations forces may be a few short years away from donning a similar suit, one that can monitor the user’s vital signs, give him real-time battleﬁeld information and be bulletproof from head to toe. The suit might eventually have other features unheard of only a few years ago, including an exoskeleton made of liquid armor, smart fabrics that could help stop hemorrhaging, enhanced sensory capabilities and Google Glasslike visuals. The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) project is coordinated through the Special Operations Command headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla. Military commanders are expected to see prototypes in June, with hopes that the suit will be given to high-risk units in 2018. While the project sounds like something out of a science fiction novel, its mission is simple, said James Geurts, the Deputy for Acquisition of the U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill. “We’ve lost a lot of guys to gunshot wounds and explosions,” he said. “If there’s anything I can do to more rapidly ﬁeld technology, give better protection, better capability, any progress, I think we’ve done well.” Some companies working on the TALOS project are in Tampa
this week for the International Special Operations Forces conference. The four-day event showcases special military technologies, gadgets and tools — from pen-like systems collecting chemical vapors to underwater robots. The biggest current challenge for the suit is making it light and comfortable for the soldier.
“Hollywood did a pretty good job of showing us what Iron Man could do on the screen, and the system may do some of those things — but we’re not planning on ﬂying.” — MICH A EL FIELDSON, THE CIVILIAN TALOS PROJECT MANAGER, COMPARING THE PROJECT TO ITS FILM COUNTERPART — TONY STARK’S IRON MAN SUIT
“For every pound the operator has to carry in armor, there’s an additional energy supply,” said Dan Stamm, a research scientist at Battelle, an Ohio-based defense contractor that’s the lead contracting consultant on the TALOS project. Dan Rini, president of Rini Tech in Orlando, Fla., is one of the contractors on the project. His company has made a “personal thermal protection system” for the military that runs off a 3½-pound battery and uses cold water and tubes to keep people cool. Rini said he’s trying to adapt
The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit may have “Iron Man” qualities, like liquid armor and smart fabrics to stop hemorrhaging.

Military’s proposed ‘Iron Man’-like super suit may be a few years away
Sketches of the body armor exoskeleton were shown this week during the Special Operations Forces conference.
Out-of-the-Box Thinking What might be more remarkable than the whiz-bang technology of the suit is how the team is reaching out to recruit contractors in non-traditional ways. U.S. Special Operations Command commander Adm. William McRaven is widely credited with initiating the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit project. Last year, he described a unique approach: By harnessing the expertise of professional engineers, the creativity of students and possibly even “local garage tinkerers,” the military will end up with a truly innovative project. SOCOM has held “Monster Garage”-type events for people with potential ideas, and even James Geurts, the Deputy for Acquisition of SOCOM at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla., acknowledged: “It’s certainly not the traditional Department of Defense model.” In September, he tweeted: “Looking for #collaborators to help #invent the next generation of #sof combat gear via #talos @SOFTALOS.” (AP)
that invention to the TALOS suit. “We don’t want that person inside the suit to get overcome by heat stress,” Rini said. “He might have to be in it for a long time.” Michael Fieldson, the civilian
TALOS project manager, said the battery pack for the cooling system and the exoskeleton present the biggest weight hurdles. “Nature did a pretty good job of designing the human body and we’re trying to
mimic that,” Fieldson said. Whether the suit is adopted by special operations forces, even in part, will remain to be seen, said Brad Curran, a senior industry analyst with Frost & Sullivan Aerospace and Defense. He suggested that partial exoskeletons to help ease the strain on soldiers’ knees would be likely used ﬁrst. “It is more likely that certain aspects of the suit research will be applied incrementally, rather than a complete rollout all at once,” he said. “Integrated helmets with communications, night vision, and heads-up visor displays that are used by pilots may be deployed by ground troops as well. Lighter weight and less bulky body armor with better ballistic protection is needed by all.” TAMAR A LUSH (AP)

MUSIC JOURNALIST, MEMOIRIST AND MICK JAGGER INSULTER
Your boyfriend’s sister’s best friend went to college with that girl on “Glee?” That’s cool. Lisa Robinson once took shots of tequila with Annie Leibovitz at a Bob Marley concert and is responsible for introducing David Bowie to Lou Reed. As a pioneering music journalist in the 1970s (working for Creem, Hit Parader, et al.), Robinson rarely left the house without a VIP pass dangling from her neck. She shares a lifetime’s worth of backstage escapades and intimate insights on rock royalty in her new book, “There Goes Gravity: A Life in Rock and Roll” ($28, Riverhead Books). On Thursday, Robinson will discuss the dossier at the W Hotel’s POV rooftop lounge with NPR Music’s Bob Boilen followed by a DJ set from the Post’s Chris Richards. The book is full of rich anecdotes. You must have a great memory.
Have you ever been starstruck?
No, not really. I have been in awe of people’s talents. But did I fall down in a dead faint when I met Mick Jagger? No. The first thing I said to him was, ‘Those are the tackiest shoes I’ve ever seen.’ I think when you’re born and brought up in New York City you have this feeling like you were the center of the world, so I was a little more cynical or jaded or sophisticated. Do you remember your very ﬁrst concert?
I snuck out of my house when I was 12 to see jazz musicians. I don’t know how I got into these clubs at the age of 12. I plopped my hair on top of my head, wore high heels, put makeup on and I got in. I saw Thelonious Monk and Miles Davis. Some of the rockers were pretty misogynistic. How did you deal with it at the time?
My memory is very good because I didn’t take drugs. I also have envelopes full of notes from every [Rolling] Stones concert from the ’75 tour and the five Led Zeppelin tours I went on in the ’70s. I have 5,000 cassettes filled with hours and hours of all the interviews I ever did. When I was writing the book I was listening to a lot of these tapes and, honestly, it was like John Lennon was in the room. That’s how much they’ve held up. You got a lot of serious rockers to
To this day, Jimmy complains about bad Led Zeppelin reviews. Here we have one of the greatest rock ’n’ roll bands of the last 50 years with millions of millions of albums sold and he’s still bitching about their reviews from the ’70s.
I didn’t really see a lot of the sleazy stuff because I was careful to separate myself from that. I was very professional. I went back to my room every night. I was newly married to someone who was much cuter than any of these guys were. HOLLEY SIMMONS (E XPRESS)

Philosopher’s Zone Cass McCombs has deep thoughts — just not about his music Music Cass McCombs says he’s no one. But he’s definitely somebody. The singer-songwriter has released seven full-length albums, toured the world and developed a reputation as a relatively pressshy nomad. His sound ranges from folkie dream-pop to hypnotic rock jams in the vein of the Grateful Dead. “I have nothing to teach,” McCombs says by phone from “somewhere in California.” “I have
INDIES & ARTIES
nothing to learn. I am no one. I have no identity.” The 36-year-old musician, who performs Sunday at the Black Cat, is talking about self-reflection and how he sees contemplating one’s experiences to be a foolish act. It seems like an odd stance to take, considering the stories and emotions McCombs communicates with his art. “If you have a moment of reflection, it will find you, if it’s necessary,” he says. “But that’s not what music is for. That’s perverted, you know. Music should be fun. It should be challenging.” Though McCombs’ catalog offers plenty of fun, there is also a profound depth of feeling in
“My songs are not inspired by my life. Life is not story. You know? Life is life. … There’s no history. There’s no facts. Life just goes. It ﬂows. It goes and changes.” his music. There is a sincere seriousness to some of his music that seems to belie his mission statement of fun. His songs are not sharp or prickly, but full, inviting, and expansive, inspiring a sense of wonder. McCombs’ latest record is the
double album “Big Wheel and Others,” released last fall. As befits the nature of a double album, the tracks seem to have a certain freedom from constraint, much like their creator. According to McCombs, his own life does not play into his songwriting and any seeming autobiography is, in fact, not. Forget thinking of “Lionkiller” as a detailed account of his birth, or “The Executioner’s Song” as representing his actual feelings about his own job. McCombs prefers a separation between art and artist. “On a really basic level, no, my songs are not inspired by my life,” he says. “Life is not story. You know? Life is life. … There’s no history. There’s no facts. Life just goes. It flows. It goes and changes. It vaporizes as soon as you try to put your finger on it, you know? “So, I would never try to, like, associate with life,” he continues. “It’s impossible. My life has nothing to do with this. No artist’s life is what their art’s about. That’s not what life is. … Feelings are closer to life than anything.” As strongly as he feels on the subject, McCombs won’t be publishing a book full of his thoughts on existence and identity anytime soon. “No, no. That’s not my thing,” he says. “I’m an entertainer, I’m a guitar player. All this philosophy stuff, it’s a hobby. I mean, it’s also our obligation.” A personal obligation? “An intrinsic obligation to the gifts of life. Philosophy is an obligation. We have to further ourselves. We can’t be complacent. We have to push ourselves.” REESE HIGGINS (FOR E XPRESS)

2 ‘The Brady Bunch Movie’ TV’s most famous stepfamily came to the big screen in 1995, but this time the ’70s clan is living in modern times. Anachronistic adorableness is awkward for Jan but guess who manages to carry it off? Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!
3 ‘Step Brothers’ How do you get an adult child out of your house? This 2008 film suggested marrying someone with an equally lazy son and then making them share a room. They’ll either kill each other or have so much fun they’ll never leave.
4 ‘The Stepfather’ Usually stepmoms get the bad rap (thanks, Disney!) but in this 2009 horror remake, Dylan Walsh takes discipline to extreme levels. Like death.
5 ‘My Stepmother Is an Alien’ This 1988 comedy is actually pretty good, but the best part is seeing an itty-bitty Alyson Hannigan. It’s Willow! But tiny!

Weekend Pass | entertainment NATIONAL HARBOR
Giant wheels spin in other cities — including Brisbane, Australia; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; and Seattle — but the most famous worldwide is the London Eye. Since we tend to beat the Brits at just about everything, let’s take a look and see who would win in circle-to-circle battle. K.P.K.
All aboard for a top-to-bottom look at National Harbor’s Capital Wheel An altered skyline looms large in Maryland, bringing joy and wonder to most and flat-out terror to the acrophobic. The 16-story Capital Wheel opens Friday at National Harbor, and for $15 you can take a climate-controlled, 15-minute spin around the city’s new giant observation wheel. (Don’t call it a Ferris wheel. Ferris wheels have open chairs and are put together by carnies; this wheel has enclosed capsules and was assembled by engineers.) As they rise above the Potomac, riders on a clear day will be able to see at least as far as Arlington Cemetery; on a cloudy day they’ll still be able to see the Tanger Outlets right behind National Harbor and laugh at people stuck on the Wilson Bridge. In an area that is somewhat lacking in skyscrapers and rather strict about what you can fly where, the wheel offers D.C. residents a rare chance to soar. KRISTEN PAGE-KIRBY (E XPRESS)

HEIGHT At 443 feet, the London Eye beats our wheel by a lot. However, it’s only the fifth-tallest building in their city, so it probably has an inferiority complex that makes it easy to beat. Winner: Capital Wheel
Capital Wheel, 165 Waterfront St., National Harbor, Md.; opens Fri., daily, 10 a.m.-11 p.m., $15 (adult), $11.25 (child 3-11) and free for children 2 or younger; 877-628-5427, nationalharbor.com.
The Wheel, by the Numbers Round Figures The $15 million permanent fixture is 180 feet tall above the water, with a diameter of 165 feet . If you remember your geometry, you know that if the wheel were a pie and you sliced it into eight slices, you’d have eight really big pieces of pie. Each of the 42 climate-controlled gondolas can hold eight people. That includes the four-person VIP gondola, which for $50 per person delivers upgrades including leather bucket seats, a DVD player and wine chillers. The wine is especially handy for the acrophobic because this gondola, unlike the others, has glass floors. The wheel is also available for private parties. Best wedding reception ever.
There are 1.6 million LED lights that are programmable and have a spectrum of 16.7 million colors. 4.2 million of which people will identify as “blue.”

Projections suggest that 600,000 to 800,000 people will ride the wheel each year; at least 10,000 are expected to moon the city.

CIRCUMFERENCE London’s wheel has a circumference of 1,392 feet, which means if you unraveled it, it would be just over a quarter-mile long. Our wheel is too tough to be unraveled, so such silly measurements don’t matter. Winner: Capital Wheel AMENITIES The London Eye offers special amenities like “Cupid’s Capsule,” which for the low low price of around $590 you get a 30-minute private capsule (with a guide, presumably in case you get lost), a bottle of Pommery Brut Royal Champagne and a box of chocolates. Our wheel doesn’t have such things set up yet, but it will — and now that the gauntlet’s been thrown, our team has to top the Brits. Winner: Capital Wheel

WHO THE HECK IS ...
Comedian Brody Stevens is funny, but he doesn’t tell much in the way of jokes. When he’s onstage, Stevens is more apt to yell at the audience about “positive energy,” his acting résumé, or how he still reps his hometown (“818 till I die!” he often shouts, calling out San Fernando Valley, Calif.). His surreal, narcissistic act makes him one of comedy’s most intriguing — and unpredictable — voices.
‘Enjoy It!’ (Or Not) Stevens’ 12-episode Comedy Central series, “Brody Stevens: Enjoy It!,” was a strange melding of reality TV and pitch-black comedy, though it’s unclear which parts are real and which are scripted. The series (which aired last fall and was expanded from a batch of HBO Go shorts) follows Stevens as he recovers from a psychotic break spurred by an infamous Twitter outburst in 2011. Cameras track Stevens, newly diagnosed as bipolar, as his manages his mania, does stand-up on “Conan” and hangs out with best friend (and series producer) Zach Galifianakis in what is Comedy Central’s most dramatic series yet.
A Role Player Stevens and Galifianakis go way back, with the latter helping Stevens get bit parts in the first two “Hangover” movies and “Due Date” (facts Stevens likes to reiterate whenever he’s onstage). Stevens is also one of the most
experienced warm-up comedians in the game, with stints amping up the audiences of “The Man Show,” “Chelsea Lately,” “Rob Dyrdek’s Ridiculousness,” and, most recently, Chris Hardwick’s “@Midnight.”
The Head Oddball Last summer, Stevens hosted the second stage on Funny or Die’s Oddball comedy tour — the one that brought Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords to outdoor amphitheaters across the country (but sadly, not D.C.). This year, he’s headlining the pre-Oddball Road 2 Oddball comedy club tour (along with “Who Charted” podcast host Howard Kremer and Adam Cayton-Holland), which stops at the D.C. Improv on Thursday. If you go, you better enjoy it — that’s what Stevens will say. RUDI GREENBERG (EXPRESS)

THE WASHINGTON POST
If ad space were real estate, this would be a historic row house in Logan Circle.
Survival in the Garden How best to enjoy the National Gallery’s weekly jazz festival Music Summer + picnics + alcohol + jazz + priceless works of art: This is the magic formula behind the National Gallery of Art’s Jazz in the Garden, which kicks off Friday. Here’s our guide to what’s arguably D.C.’s favorite non-Natsgame outdoor event.
To advertise: 202-334-6732 or
The 6.1-acre Sculpture Garden gets crowded quickly on summer Fridays. Avoid endless confused texting by picking a tall sculpture as your rendezvous point. An easy one to spot is Roxy Paine’s “Graft,” a stainless steel, 45-foot-tall treelike structure. “It has become a beacon in the garden,” says Molly Donovan, the museum’s associate curator of modern and contemporary art. “You’re drawn to it because it looks familiar, and then you realize it’s not a
regular tree,” Donovan says.
The Booze The all-star drink of the evening is the sangria. “During Jazz in the Garden we can sell as much as a thousand gallons of sangria a night,” says Kris Rohr, director of marketing and communication at Guest Services, the company in charge of concessions. What makes it so irresistible? “I hate to tell you, but it’s a secret recipe,” Rohr says. Wine without fruit chunks is available by the glass ($7.50-$8.50) or bottle ($27-$30); Stella Artois can be had by the glass ($6.75) or pitcher ($18.50). You’re not allowed to bring your own alcohol into the garden, though some ne’er-do-wells report smuggling it in.
door grill — the only time it does so all year, Rohr says — to serve grilled chicken kabobs ($10.50), smoked brisket sandwiches ($10) and pulled pork sandwiches ($9).
The Music Jazz in the Garden might be more aptly named “Chatter in the Garden.” Unless you arrive early — some people get there as early as 4 p.m. — you probably won’t be able to see the performers. You can hear them from every spot in the garden, but you’ll have to listen over the steady hum of conversation. If you want to see and hear Afrofunk group Elikeh on Friday, grab your spot at 4 p.m. Otherwise, you could always wait and check them out at Tropicalia on June 20.
You can bring as much of your own food as you wish, so go nuts with the picnic baskets. The Pavilion Cafe sells sandwiches, salads and dips ($9.75-$11.50) for those lacking the wherewithal to prepare their own snacks. The cafe also fires up an out-

“Good wine is a necessity of life for me.”
Conor Oberst has matured a great deal during his two decades in music.
A Bright-Eyed Trek
1998 ‘If Winter Ends’ (From Bright Eyes’ ‘Letting Off the Happiness’) The blistering song finds an 18-yearold Oberst making suicide threats while literally screaming “for the sunlight” as he equates his teenage depression to a never-ending winter, begging for spring to melt his frozen heart. It’s one of his rawest emo moments and a stark contrast to his present persona.
2002 ‘Let’s Not S--Ourselves (To Love and To Be Loved)’ (From Bright Eyes’ ‘Lifted or The Story Is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground’) This 10-minute tirade marks Oberst’s initial foray into ’70s-minded political rock. The rollicking song bursts with horns, crunchy guitar solos and a yelping Oberst condemning “cowboy presidents,” the education system, the media and war. With a dose of angst and pointed opinions, the song bridges the
gap between his emo tendencies and more mature, Dylan-esque folk-rock. The times they were a-changin’, indeed.
2005 ‘We Are Nowhere And It’s Now’ (From Bright Eyes’ ‘I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning’) In 2005, Oberst released an electro-pop album and a country-folk record on the same day. The latter, “I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning,” dove headfirst into twangy singer-songwriter territory with its uncharacteristically warm and relatable country ballads. With Emmylou Harris on backup vocals, this gorgeous folk song finds Oberst surveying an existential limbo while drifting asleep in the passenger seat of a directionless car. He plays Gram Parsons pretty well, especially for an ex-emo kid.
2014 ‘You Are Your Mother’s Child’ (From Oberst’s ‘Upside Down Mountain’) One of Oberst’s most poignant songs to date chronicles a boy’s childhood through the eyes of his aging father. It’s a simplistic acoustic folk song as heartwarming as it is tragic, culminating in the father’s recognition that the son will be a better dad than he ever was. Though previous songs touch on similar topics, Oberst has never sounded so in love with life, or so balanced. There’s no angst or aesthetic dissonance, just admiration for life’s unrelenting ebbs and flows.

Get Into Hot Water It’s teatime: Do you know where the hippest experiences are?
Behind water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. (Take that, Team Coffee!) And locally it seems there’s a tea revolution brewing as well: Back in March, Annapolis-born Capital Teas received $5 million in investment funding, which it plans to put toward its expansion in D.C. and beyond. Still not convinced tea can be cool? Here are five ways to enjoy tasty brews in the area, from the traditional to the novel.

(Grosvenor)
When you take afternoon tea in the Shapiro Music Room in the Mansion at Strathmore, “you feel like you’re stepping back in time,” says tearoom manager Mary Mendoza Godbout. Local musicians (pianists, flutists) play in the dark-paneled, high-ceilinged room. The menu includes tea sandwiches and scones, with a tea especially made for Strathmore by master tea blender John Harney of Connecticut, Mendoza Godbout says, describing the blend as “black tea, not heavy, gentle on the caffeine and very tasty with a good aroma.”

An L Street office building seems an unlikely place to take part in a centuries-old ritual. Yet that’s where the Chado Urasenke Center has built a Japanese chashitsu, or tearoom that practices the ceremonial preparation of matcha tea. Before participating in the elaborate service, guests are encouraged to wash their hands in a low stone water basin outside of the tea room to symbolically purify themselves of the dust of the everyday world. You can take part in the tradition at various times Tuesdays through Saturdays (a $35 yearly membership fee is required, plus $25 per service).

Hold the lime: A better way to upgrade your Corona is with Capitol Teas’ Tea Lager Beer Enhancers ($5 for a pack of six bags). The leaves are blended to offset beer’s natural bitterness and produce a smoother, more balanced finish.
“You get a beer that has less bite and tastes like a pleasant cocktail,” says Capital Teas CEO Peter Martino. Designed to be brewed in cold beer for five to 10 minutes, the blends include Cream Earl Grey Black (best with Blue Moon), Invigorating Mint Mate (perfect with Red Stripe) and Harbor Breeze, made with hibiscus (which pairs well with any lager). Martino and his crew also offer Vino Teanos, which — you guessed it — are meant to be brewed in wine ($5 for a pack of six bags), as well as TeaTeani liquor mix-ins ($21.50 for 6 ounces of loose leaves).

The tea menu at House of Steep is extensive, with various types of black, oolong, green and white, plus healthy blends with soothing names like “Brighten,” “Cleanse,” “Uplift” and “Vitality.” But the other menu is even more tempting, the one for the “foot sanctuary” in the back of the tea shop. That menu includes reflexology, foot massages and foot soaks with ingredients like bergamot tea, mint, lemon grass, pine, catnip, dandelion and frankincense. “I wanted to create a place where people could relax that was bigger than just a place to drink tea,” owner Lyndsey DePalma says.

For example, the pork tenderloin sits atop a goat cheese soubise (bonjour!) and is topped with chipotle peach preserves (hey, y’all!). And the roasted chicken breast comes with a Mâconian onion confit as well as Maconian collard greens. Much like the cuisine at Macon Bistro & Larder, Brown’s background isn’t so clear-cut. He received a chemistry degree from Cornell University before attending culinary school in New York. He worked in some notable restaurants and even opened his own small chain of burrito joints, The Burro, in Washington in the mid-’90s. He sold his share in 2001 and left cooking behind to attend Georgetown Business School (where he graduated as valedictorian). After 12 years working in busi-
ness, Brown got the itch to return to the restaurant industry. What finally drew him out of culinary retirement was finding the perfect spot: a sunlit space in a historic, Parisian-inspired shopping arcade on Connecticut Avenue NW. “When this space became available, that was definitely an aha moment,” he says. Perhaps the most important contribution Macon is making to the neighborhood is that warm, Southern hospitality sensibility. “For me, cooking is more than just the food and the art,” Brown says. “It’s more about bringing people together.” BETH MARLOWE (EXPRESS)

DISH OF THE WEEK Fried Chicken Skins Available at Jack Rose Dining Saloon
HOLLEY SIMMONS (EXPRESS)
Tony Brown, a Chevy Chase, D.C., resident of 15 years, recognized what he thought was a major void in the local dining scene: “D.C. is a conglomeration of neighborhoods, but there are not that many neighborhood restaurants.” So in an attempt to give area residents another option, the chef this month opened Macon Bistro & Larder, which marries two regional cuisines. Brown grew up in Macon, Ga., a medium-sized city 85 miles south of Atlanta with a rich, down-home cooking tradition. While Brown was in high school, his family hosted foreign exchange students from Mâcon, a chardonnay-producing region in the east of France. Later the army brat spent part of his youth in Europe. These influences impact the menu at his new restaurant, meaning you’ll find classical French techniques — artful compositions, homemade stocks — coexisting alongside Southern classics like butter beans and fried green tomatoes. “We decided to take the French as the foundation, and then to lay on top of that the Southern farmto-table place that celebrates country elements of Southern cuisine.”
It’s difficult to prepare a menu that can compete with 1,600 bottles of whiskey. But Russell Jones — Jack Rose’s new chef — makes a valiant effort with his Southern-inspired eats. The standout? Simple fried chicken skins tossed in a blend of lime, sugar, salt and paprika. The crispy bits are thin and juicy and practically arrive crackling to the table.

NBA Draft Questions
Now that the NBA draft order is set — with the Cleveland Cavaliers winning the lottery Tuesday night for the third time in the past four years — it’s time to dissect this highly anticipated draft class. Here are three questions surrounding the June 26 event. JEFFREY TOMIK (E XPRESS)
Who Should Go No. 1? Kansas center Joel Embiid looks most like the top pick, being a 7-footer with great shot-blocking ability and low-post moves. But the back injury that ended his freshman season early could be a concern. Then there’s Duke’s Jabari Parker, who put together the most productive freshman season in college basketball last year. He averaged 19.1 points and 8.7 rebounds a game for the Blue Devils. But Parker’s limited athletically. The best option for the Cavaliers at No. 1 is Kansas’ Andrew Wiggins. The forward was at times a little too passive on offense during his freshman season, but Wiggins, left, is the most talented player with the highest ceiling.
Who’s a Sleeper Pick? This draft class is one of the deepest in recent history, and there’s plenty of value in the mid to late first round. Coming off his team’s NCAA championship, UConn guard Shabazz Napier may be the most intriguing. He’s an undersized guard, but he’s quick and plays big — having led the Huskies in rebounding this season. Other possible sleepers who could be available outside the lottery include T.J. Warren, Cleanthony Early and Tyler Ennis. N.C. State’s Warren, right, was third in the country in scoring, averaging 24.9 points a game. Early helped lead Wichita State to a 35-1 season. And Ennis was Syracuse’s steady point guard who led the ACC in assists this season.
What About the Wizards? Washington traded away its 2014 first-round pick to the Suns in the deal to acquire center Marcin Gortat, so its lone draft pick this year is at No. 46. Finding a second-round pick who can contribute right away is often difficult — even the Wizards’ No. 3 pick in 2013, Otto Porter Jr., didn’t play much in his rookie year — but there could be some viable options waiting for the Wizards. Some of the bigger names expected to still be around in the middle of the second round include Louisville’s Russ Smith, Arizona’s Nick Johnson and Virginia’s Joe Harris.
Mock NBA Draft We match each team with the player who would be the best fit: 1. Cleveland — Andrew Wiggins, SF, Kansas. There’s not a player in this draft with a higher ceiling. 2. Milwaukee — Joel Embiid, C, Kansas. An athletic 7-footer should at least have a major impact on defense. 3. Philadelphia — Jabari Parker, SF, Duke. He’s probably the most NBAready but not as athletic as top two.
4. Orlando — Julius Randle, PF, Kentucky. The Magic need a post player, and he’s a double-double machine. 5. Utah — Aaron Gordon, PF, Arizona. There wouldn’t be a more athletic frontline than Gordon-Derrick Favors. 6. Boston — Dante Exum, SG, Austra-
lia. The 6-foot-6 18-year-old could be Rajon Rondo’s perfect running mate.
7. L.A. Lakers — Marcus Smart, PG, Oklahoma State. As a big point guard (6-foot-4, 220 pounds), he can do it all. 8. Sacramento — Noah Vonleh, PF, Indiana. He needs to develop but would complement DeMarcus Cousins well. 9. Charlotte — Doug McDermott, PF, Creighton. Charlotte needs scoring, and that’s what McDermott does best. 10. Philadelphia — Gary Harris, SG, Michigan State. If they got Parker at No. 3, Harris would be a nice fit. 11. Denver — Adreian Payne, PF, Michigan State. He would space the floor with his 3-point shooting and add size to the Nuggets’ frontcourt. 12. Orlando — Rodney Hood, SF, Duke. Drafting Hood and Randle
would revamp the Magic’s frontcourt. 13. Minnesota — Nik Stauskas, SG, Michigan. They could use a shooter, especially if they trade Kevin Love. 14. Phoenix — James Young, SF, Kentucky. He averaged just 0.7 points per game less than Randle at Kentucky. 15. Atlanta — T.J. Warren, SF, N.C. State. Averaging 24.8 points a game in the ACC is no joke. 16. Chicago — Dario Saric, SF, Croatia. If Hood, Young and Warren are gone, Saric may be the best option. 17. Boston — Cleanthony Early, PF, Wichita State. Boston’s frontcourt could use an athletic scorer.
18. Phoenix — Jerami Grant, PF, Syracuse. He’s got to develop but should be an immediate help on the boards. 19. Chicago — Kyle Anderson, SF,
UCLA. His versatility would help the Bulls’ stagnant offense (so would a healthy Derrick Rose). 20. Toronto — Tyler Ennis, PG, Syracuse. If Kyle Lowry leaves via free agency, Ennis could play right away.
21. Oklahoma City — K.J. McDaniels, SF, Clemson. The Thunder could use another scorer off the bench. 22. Memphis — Shabazz Napier, PG, UConn. If he pans out to be anything like Kemba Walker, this is a steal. 23. Utah — P.J. Hairston, SG, DLeague. The ex-Tar Heels guard averaged 21.8 points in the D-League. 24. Charlotte — Zach LaVine, SG, UCLA. The 6-foot-5 guard is a project, but he’s extremely explosive. 25. Houston — Glenn Robinson III,
SF, Michigan. He would give Houston more athleticism at small forward. 26. Miami — Mitch McGary, C, Michigan. If McGary didn’t hurt his back, he easily would have been a top-10 pick. 27. Phoenix — Jarnell Stokes, PF, Tennessee. He’s small for an NBA power forward, but Stokes is powerful and a tenacious rebounder. 28. L.A. Clippers — Patric Young, C, Florida. The Clippers badly need depth behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.
29. Oklahoma City — Isaiah Austin, C, Baylor. The shot-blocking athletic 7-footer should be a defensive asset. 30. San Antonio — Semaj Christon, PG, Xavier. He’s got speed and could be a good slasher off the bench. JEFFREY TOMIK (EXPRESS)

Teams in the league plan to participate in local pride festivals Basketball
The WNBA is kicking off a campaign to market specifically to the LGBT community, a shift that makes it the first pro league to specifically recruit gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered fans to its games. With the campaign, the WNBA is capitalizing on what it has known for years: The community makes up a signiﬁcant portion of its fan base. The difference now is that the league is talking about it publicly
and making it a deliberate part of its marketing strategy. The launch of the campaign coincides with a surge of political and legal advances for the gayrights movement in the U.S., as well as steadily shifting public opinion in favor of gay rights. The effort, which begins with the debut of a website Wednesday, includes having teams participate in local pride festivals and parades, working with advocacy groups to raise awareness of inclusion through grassroots events and advertising with lesbian media. A nationally televised pride game will take place between Tulsa and Chicago on Sunday, June 22, on ESPN2. All
WNBA to Market to LGBT Fans
Say Cheese, Champs
This T-shirt is part of a WNBA campaign to market to the LGBT community.
12 teams will also have some sort of pride initiative over the course of the season. “For us it’s a celebration of
diversity and inclusion and recognition of an audience that has been with us very passionately,” WNBA President Laurel Richie said. It’s taken the league 18 years to take the step, though it had discussions about the possibility previously. Teams have done some promotion locally, sponsoring booths at gay pride events and hosting groups at games. “We embrace all our fans and it’s a group that we know has been very, very supportive. I won’t characterize it as ‘Why did it take so long?’ For me it’s been we’ve been doing a lot of terriﬁc initiatives. The piece that’s different this year is unifying it,” Richie said.

George Had Concussion Forward must pass league tests before he’s cleared to play The long break between games in the Eastern Conference finals could be welcomed by Indiana after Pacers guard Paul George was diagnosed Wednesday with a concussion that will force him to complete several NBA-mandated procedures before he can return to the matchup against the Miami Heat. The series, now tied 1-1, doesn’t resume until Saturday night. Indiana not only needs to get George cleared but also had starters Lance Stephenson, Roy Hibbert and David West all either limping or ailing in the ﬁnal minutes of the Game 2 loss on Tuesday night. George was hurt with 6:52 left in the fourth quarter of Miami’s Game 2 victory. He stole the ball from Heat guard Dwyane Wade, but could not

keep control and wound up tumbling face-ﬁrst to the court. Wade, also going for the ball, struck the back of George’s head with his left knee. George remained down for a few moments, but played the remainder of the game. He revealed afterward that he “blacked out” on the play, something that the Pacers say was not relayed to their medical staff. But after the “blacked out” comment, the Pacers evaluated George
again Wednesday morning. “This case illustrates that concussion evaluation is an ongoing process and manifestations of the injury may not always present immediately,” said NBA Concussion Program Director Dr. Jeffrey Kutcher, who will discuss George’s return-to-participation process with the Pacers’ team doctor before clearance is given for a return.

Scott Plays as No. 1 for First Time Adam Scott downplayed the world ranking and the idea of being the No. 1 player the past few months. “Maybe I was trying to take some pressure off myself and just think about playing golf rather than other things that happen from it,” Scott said Wednesday. “I think that’s what I need to do now.” The Australian finally made it to the top of the world ranking, overtaking injured Tiger Woods after a week at home in the Bahamas. Scott will play as No. 1 for the

ﬁrst time when he tees off today at the Colonial. “It’s only been realistic for the last week sitting at home,” Scott
said, adding the accomplishment isn’t diminished by doing it that way instead of on the course. Scott is grouped for the ﬁrst two days at Hogan’s Alley with twotime Colonial champion Zach Johnson and Jimmy Walker, a threetime winner this season and the FedEx Cup points leader. Second-ranked Woods isn’t sure when he will return from a back injury. No. 3 Henrik Stenson, playing in Europe’s ﬂagship event, should be able to reach No. 1 if he places higher at Wentworth than Scott at Colonial. STEPHEN HAWKINS (AP)
Where’s the Beef? Mexico’s World Cup players are being banned from eating beef, a move aimed at avoiding positive doping tests from meat contaminated with the performance-enhancing drug clenbuterol. Coach Miguel Herrera, left, said Wednesday he had told his players more than a month ago not to eat red meat. During the 2011 Gold Cup, five Mexico players tested positive for clenbuterol, a muscle-building drug. The Mexican Football Federation eventually cleared the players of doping. (AP)

Ovechkin Back on the Ice ALEXANDER NEMENOV (AFP/GETTY IMAGES)
Caps star practices with Russian team after right leg injury Hockey
Three days after injuring his right leg at the IIHF World Championships, Alex Ovechkin was back on the ice practicing with the Russian national team Wednesday — fueling speculation that the star winger could be back in Russia’s lineup as early as today for a quarterfinal game against France. Ovechkin, 28, is believed to have sprained his right MCL when he was hip checked by Germany’s Marcus Kink in a preliminary round game Sunday. The Capitals declined to offer speciﬁc details of Ovechkin’s injury but said in a statement that the organization is “conﬁdent” the winger will be

healthy and ready for the start of training camp. But while multiple reports out of Belarus, where the tournament is taking place, indicated that concern was focused on Ovechkin’s knee — he underwent an MRI on his right knee after the hit, was provided with a customized knee
brace and Russian national ofﬁcials conﬁrmed that he did not suffer any torn ligaments in his knee — the star winger said Wednesday his knee is not injured. Ovechkin was cryptic when asked by reporters if he would play against France, but even if he sits out that contest it certainly seems as though he intends to suit up for Russia again before the world championships conclude. Given Russia’s disappointing exit from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, ﬁnishing without a medal for the third consecutive games, there is pressure for the national team to perform well at the world championships even if the rest of the ﬁeld isn’t sporting top-tier rosters like they do for the Olympics. Russia currently leads the tournament with a 7-0 record through the preliminary round. K ATIE CARRER A (THE WASHINGTON POST )

We Choose to Be NPH Neil Patrick Harris is writing a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ book 31
Deep in His Own Head
Comedian Marc Maron mines his personal life for material on his show and his podcast
Unendorsed by C.K. In its fourth season, the comedy “Louie” (10 p.m. Mondays on FX) is brilliant, unconventional and tinged with melancholy. Series creator and star Louis C.K. on life after death: “Lots of things happen after you die. Just none of them include you.” I wonder if “Louie” advertisers know what kind of show they’ve bought into. One ad claims you can “stop working out” and yet “shed the fat and sculpt your body” By Marc by dancing to DVDs. Silver Louie might buy the DVDs in hope of transforming his husky physique. Then he would sit on the couch and watch them while eating an apple pie. An ad asserts that if you have a “structured settlement” it can be converted into cash to pay bills. In one episode, Louie accidentally punches a woman who’s tickling him and harms her eye; her family asks him for $5 million. Louie does not appear to have a structured settlement worth $5 million. An ad for “sleep number beds” that ease back pain ran in an episode where Louie suffers crippling back pain and massages his back with a dildo for relief. The dildo is probably a lot cheaper than the bed. Read Marc’s previous columns at: www.washingtonpost.com/muse
Comedian Marc Maron is one of the best interviewers working today, capable to getting in his subjects’ heads and crafting intelligent conversation. But he says that skill came from a dark place. When he launched his twice-weekly interview podcast, “WTF with Marc Maron,” five years ago, his 20-year career as a standup comic was in tatters and his personal life (that of a recovering alcoholic with two failed marriages) not much rosier. “I started talking to people because I really needed help,” Maron, 50, says, “and I think my interviewing style evolved from a deep need to connect with each of them for that hour.” “WTF,” which will air its 500th episode on Monday, was born in his garage in a Los Angeles neighborhood no one would mistake for Bel-Air or Marina Del Rey. There he interviews fellow comedians, bringing empathy and insight to conversations about their common craft and particular struggles. Each month it is downloaded as many as 3 million times, and has drawn a show-biz who’s-who to his garage for sessions that prove not only funny and illuminating but also serve as group therapy for Maron, guest and audience alike. In addition, Maron stars in his

own biographical comedy, which since last year has become one of TV’s funniest shows. “Maron,” whose second season is airing 10 p.m. Thursdays on IFC, put him on display in a TV version of his life as a hapless comic with a podcast, neuroses, issues with women and a penchant for getting himself into jams. Maron cops to nervousness as he faced this season’s 13 episodes, which he again co-wrote and coexecutive produced. “The ﬁrst season was very personal, and I didn’t know how much more I had: I don’t live that big a life,” he says. “Then I learned that

Episode 461: Christopher Guest’s go-to movie star, Ed Begley Jr., dishes on partying with Jack Nicholson in the 1970s.

if the ﬁctional version is solid, you can build stories on it and make them feel true.” During this season, he buys a pricey “tube amp” sound system with perilous romantic consequences. He bombs big-time as a guest on the AMC fan show “The Talking Dead.” His dizzy mother (Sally Kellerman) lands for a visit. Maron, with little TV experience, rises to the occasion he had stopped hoping for. “By the time this all happened,” he says, “I’d given up any expectation of a TV project, and I didn’t know how to do it. But I knew I was ready.” An Albuquerque, N.M., native whose formative idols range from Don Rickles and Buddy Hackett to Richard Pryor and George Carlin, he recalls how early on he set his sights on being a comedian. “I saw the stage as a way for me to process the [stuff] I have on my mind, where I could do whatever I wanted as long as I got a couple of laughs.” Maron doesn’t string together jokes. He harvests ideas that take on an expository life of their own. Ideas like, “Glad it’s over, ‘cause I wanted to stay,” or, “Nobody is honest because everybody lies to themselves.” Any of them may ﬁnd its way into a standup bit or a “Maron” plot twist. It’s just part of Maron’s process, teasing order out of chaos. “The bulk of my creativity starts in my garage,” he sums up. A place for thinking and feeling out loud. FR A ZIER MOORE (AP)

In Brief RUMORS
Post ﬁlm critic Ann Hornaday
Opening the Lid on Cannes Film Fest
Though rumors spread Wednesday that Jessica Chastain was offered a lead role in the second season of HBO’s “True Detective,” the actress’ representatives tell E! News she will not be joining the cast. The show’s creator, Nic Pizzolatto, previously said the second season will prominently feature women. (EXPRESS)
It’s really people working very hard, with a few minutes every day of movie stars looking effortlessly ethereal as they climb the 22 red-carpeted steps of the Grand Theatre Lumiere. Otherwise, it’s like a huge, over-crowded trade show dominated by people who spend way too much time sitting on their tushies in darkened rooms.
How does Cannes actually work? Is the point of showing there for the publicity or for the cred? Thousands of films are submitted to Cannes every year, and they “say” that the screening committee sees all of them. Ultimately, the program is selected by festival artistic director Thierry Fremaux, with the imprimatur of the festival president. … For big mainstream productions (like “How to Train Your Dragon 2” this year), it’s all about publicity. For smaller films, it’s both publicity and credibility that can start off a strong festival circuit and maybe even awards nominations — all of which, ultimately, feeds box office.
Can you unpack how the nomination and voting process works? After the festival director selects what
films will compete, a jury is appointed and they are obligated to see all the films, which they take very seriously. They really do see all of them, then they meet — I believe the festival president attends the meeting but does not take part — they vote, and the winner is determined by a majority. This year the jury president is Jane Campion. Her fellow jurors include Sofia Coppola, Willem Dafoe, the Iranian actress Leila Hatami and Nicolas Winding Refn.
What’s the best ﬁlm you’ve seen since you’ve been there? (And do you think it will come to theaters?) I’ve seen lots of good films here: Today’s screening of “Foxcatcher” with Steve Carell (he’s going to blow you away); Mathieu Amalric’s erotic thriller “The Blue Room”; … “Mr. Turner”; a film from Mali called “Timbuktu.” “Wild Tales,” an omnibus of antic vignettes of Argentinian life in the tradition of Pedro Almodovar. But the great film I’ve seen here is “Winter Sleep,” by the Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan. It’s a 3-hour-plus deep dive into the life of a prosperous hotelier in Anatolia, based on a Chekhov story that just takes viewers to another place. So far, it’s made the biggest impact on me.
Contrary to rumors, Jessica Chastain is not “True Detective’s” new Rust Cohle.
