Got a question about sex, love, romance or the meaning of life? MaxSCENE has an answer. Give her a shout at maxSCENE@southernminnscene.com.

s we head into October, please promise to do me a small favor. Stop saying that you’re “scared”. “But Maxscene! The future scares me! Speaking to a group of people scares me! My mom still scares me!” No. First of all, the future is unknown. You could win the lottery in the future. Why be scared by that prospect? Second, public speaking is a skill that has to be learned, or at least refined, by the vast majority of people. Do you know what else is a skill? Knitting. Are you going to tell me you’re scared of knitting? Join Toastmasters and get over it. Finally, your mother shouldn’t scare you. In fact, if she’s anything like my own sweet mama….she should terrify you. My point here, darlings, is that the word ‘scare’ has become the adult excuse. We’ve come to believe that if we claim to be

petrified by a situation, we can avoid ever having to properly deal with it. What’s the problem with that, you ask? Let’s say a horribly deranged serial killer is chasing you. Obviously, you’re scared. You have to make it to your car parked 200 feet in front of you. Do say to Mr. Deranged Killer “Hey man. You know what? I’m really scared. Do you think you can just do me a solid and not kill me?” No! You run! You run like a high school track star that’s racing to overcome adversity in an afterschool special. Suddenly, with 100 feet left to go, you trip and fall. Do you stay down and say “Well…I’m still scared, so I’m just gonna have to throw in the towel on this one.” Again-no! You get up and keep going until you make it to your car. …and then you drop your keys. Luck is on your side, however, because

despite your lung-bursting sprint, the killer has been pursuing you at a leisurely walking pace. Even if he does decide to start running towards you, his creepy mask doesn’t allow for very good airflow or visibility. Plus, it’s hard to run properly when you have to lug a sledgehammer and a chainsaw. You’ve got plenty of time to pick up your keys, unlock your car, and get away. But you’re still scared, aren’t you? Do you look down at your feet, shrug your shoulders, and start jogging towards the killer to let him know he’s beaten you because you’re scared? HELL NO! You pick up those keys, get in that car and gun it until sunrise. The lesson to be learned here is that “scared” doesn’t solve problems, it doesn’t make them go away and it doesn’t protect you. Ultimately, SoMinn, I’m asking you to please stop thinking that “being scared” is

a course of action. Be scared, but keep running away from the deranged killer. Be scared, but ask that girl out. Be scared, but stand up for yourself. Be scared, but finally ride a rollercoaster. Be scared, but live life anyway.

W

hat is it about things that go bump in the night? Why does that vision we see out of the corner of our eye make us stop and try to see it again? Why do we love walking past a graveyard at midnight? Why do we enjoy being afraid? We should probably make a distinction here. I’m not talking about foreboding, or the big worries in life having to do with health, loved ones and general insecurities. Those are legitimate, real things. I’m talking about the things that probably don’t exist, but you wonder if they might. I’m talking about the thing that was in the really scary room in your grandma’s basement when you were a kid. How did a creepy little dude like Alfred Hitchcock become a film legend? Stephen King is a bazillionaire! If that guy didn’t write some of the scariest books ever, he’d just be your weird english teacher from middle school. I guess not everybody enjoys having their pants scared off, but you people are out there, and you know who you are. You’ll spend an entire afternoon watching a Ghost Adventures marathon on the Travel Channel, and then go find another couple episodes on YouTube when it’s over. You go up to the Cities at Halloween to go through the Soap Factory haunted house (the one that makes you sign a waiver before you can enter), and after it’s scared you so much you start to cry, you walk right back to the end of the line so you can go through again. Is it simply just the adrenaline rush? That can be pretty good, but there are lot’s of ways to get the blood flowing. Is it that we like to laugh at ourselves when we get that silly realization that the

noise behind us is just a creaky floorboard, and not the person who died in this building 80 years ago? I mean someone’s got this figured out. Look at how many Ghost Tour companies are out there across America. For $30 some two-bit actor will dress up in vintage clothing and walk or drive you around any major, and a ton of not-so-major, metropolitan areas, telling you the stories about strange and bizarre deaths and goings on. Some of these operations are incredibly hokey. But you know what? Nobody cares. We just want to know what John Dillinger does outside of the Biograph Theater in Chicago, 90 years after he was gunned down. For some, it’s maybe even comforting. Sarah Hamann, a native of Wells, MN, put it to me like this: “I love actual haunted stuff! Its so fascinating because there is this feeling that something else is there. And I think for me it ties to what happens after we die. I love the idea of doing haunted tours or seeing ghosts. Like proof that some part of me is gonna live on in some form, y’know?” For others, it’s about connecting with history. “I love all the stories behind the ghosts,” said Peter Johnson of Winona. “History isn’t just all the good and normal things that happen. It’s the weird crazy [stuff], too. I like hearing about that guy who hung himself in the courthouse because he was about to get nailed for embezzling a ton of money. And the fact that he’s still wandering around in there...I mean it’s like a cautionary tale, isn’t it?” And then there’s Hollywood’s most reliable cash cow: the horror movie. Quick, name your five favorite horror films (You can all do it. The people who don’t like horror movies stopped reading

this in the third paragraph.) Halloween, Friday the 13th, the Exorcist, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Omen? How creepy is it to sit in your living room with someone after you’ve finished watching the Amityville Horror, just waiting to hear the voices? And how much fun was it to look at your girlfriend or your bff, to make sure they were as freaked out as you were when that girl climbed out of the well AND the TV in The Ring? (And may I please interrupt this conversation to make an appeal? Can we lose this whole zombie fascination thing? Zombies break my heart. One second, the guy next to you is your best friend, and the next he wants to eat your brain. That’s not scary. It’s just sad.) “I will never forget, when I was, like, 13, watching the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the middle of the day,” Hamann told me, “and my friend and I got so scared. It was awesome! I think there is some bonding element to it. You don’t sit and watch a horror movie or do scary things alone. Its a shared adrenaline rush with your friends.” Yeah, there’s a huge difference between feeling someone standing behind you when you know there’s nobody there, and two of you hearing a weird sound on the second story window, looking at each other going “what is that?” One will have you avoiding a certain chair for months, and the other will be a story you laugh about for years. So why do we like to be scared? How should I know? We just do. So, go find an old abandoned building out in the woods, or go camp out in the graveyard, or go find that scary room in your grandma’s basement. Go sit there for ten minutes. In the middle of the night. With no lights. I dare you.

Lost In Translation

onsider this part deux of last month’s column (which can be found archived online at www.southerminn.com/scene!). Further discussion of the art of the mix tape. First of all, there’s the whole concept of a mix tape. I mean, if we’re going to be literal about the darn thing, tapes don’t even exist any more, do they? (And don’t even get me going about the reported pending demise of the CD....). Can we even call it a mix ‘tape’? And then there’s all this (not-so) newfangled technology -- mp3s and ipods and playlist shuffle features have basically killed the concept of what a mix tape is all about. Or, have they? Fortunately, there’s still a lot of us old schoolers out there like myself who still value the *concept* of a mix tape. And last month I talked about two kinds of mix tapes -- first, the ones designed to simply share a sampling of favorite tunes du jour with a fellow music aficionado, or provide the soundtrack to a special event or activity. It’s the other kind that I find myself thinking about a lot lately. The ones that someone has painstakingly poured their heart and soul into, whittling the song selection down bit by bit, crafting the flow of melody and mood from beginning to end. The kinds that are designed to express emotions otherwise perhaps too embarrassing or difficult or awkward to say. What I’ve realized about the latter is that things can become kinda tricky, depending upon whether you’re the giver or the receiver. (Oh, my -- did I really just say that?!?). Here’s the deal -- music may indeed be the ‘universal’ language, but its interpretations are infinitely varied. And often times what means something to one person, means something entirely different to another. (Or

Gigs on my radar the month of “Rocktober” (and beyond) Martin Devaney Album Release w/ Ol’ Yeller and The Cactus Blossoms, Oct. 4, The Cedar Cultural Center, Minneapolis The much-beloved and admired local songsmith celebrates the highly anticipated release of his sixth full-length album, “House of Rust,” joined by two of the Twin Cities favorite bands. One heckuva triple bill!

perhaps even has no meaning whatsoever). Classic case in point, of course, is misinterpreted or misheard lyrics. In fact, it’s so prevalent a problem that there’s actually a word for it: ‘mondegreen,’ a term coined by writer Sylvia Wright in a 1954 essay, in which she recounted her misunderstanding of the line “and laid him on the green” from “The Bonnie Earl O’Murray” as “Lady Mondegreen.” A guaranteed good laugh is the popular social media site, “Kiss This Guy” (www.kissthisguy.com). As in, “’Scuse me while I kiss this guy” (although we all know Jimi Hendrix was really singing “’Scuse me while I kiss the sky,” right?!?) A friend once told me she swore John Fogerty was singing “There’s a bathroom on the right” (rather than “There’s a bad moon on the rise”) and Foreigner’s “Urgent” was somehow “Sea Urchin” (seriously -- how did she come up with that one?!?). In junior high I was certain (and shocked!) that Christine McVie was singing “You screw me until the sun comes up” (yes, I did it again) instead of “You rule me until the sun comes up” (from Fleetwood Mac’s “Say You Love Me”). (For the record, I still sing it that way). And has there ever been a definitive consensus for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band’s “Blinded By the Light”? How many of us sing something like “wrapped up like a douche when you’re rollin’ in the night”??!!? (The actual line? “Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night.”) Okay, those are the obvious misinterpretations. But my premise this month, the one that’s been needling away at me (and is much more challenging to put into context), is the idea of a mix tape designed to share one’s innermost thoughts and desires -- or a side of oneself perhaps more private and

complex than what the rest of the world sees. When you get a sampler from someone and they say, “I made this especially for you!” and you listen and you think, “What the what is happening here? Does (fill in blank) even ‘get’ me at all???” Or, worse yet, “Oh, my -- is [he/she] trying to ‘tell’ me something?” (and you’re thinking, if so, I don’t wanna know!) Don’t get me wrong -I’ve been on the “giving” side of this kind of mix -- as well as the receiving end -- and in either case, I still consider it a lovely gesture and a legitimate form of artistic expression. But ultimately what’s been the monkey on my back is the fact that, we might pour ourselves into the creation of a mix tape, but there’s no guarantee that the recipient will ‘get’ what we’re saying. Maybe they will, but maybe they won’t. And maybe they will, but instead of being flattered, they’ll be totally creeped out. I realize I’m over-thinking the whole concept of a mix tape. Perhaps I’ve been on the receiving end of a few too many that give me a bit of a nervous tic (musical stalking, shall we say?!?) Basically, this is my friendly reminder that music impacts us all in different ways and it’s good to keep that in mind when sharing something *special* with someone else. A word to the wise -- music may be the ‘universal’ language, but those words and riffs that make you swoon are often lost in translation. So, when you pour your heart and soul (and blood, sweat and tears) into the creation of a mix tape, like any piece of original art, be prepared for the fact that your audience just might not ‘get’ what you’re trying to say. Or maybe they will, but then don’t be surprised if the response is not necessarily what you hoped for! ;)

art by Kii Arens, too. John Grant “Queen of Denmark” (2010) and “Pale Green Ghosts” (2013) Admittedly I’m late to the party when it comes to this amazing talent but I’m glad I checked him out. Possessing a regal baritone as golden as molten caramel (yes, that sweet, salty and smooth), Grant shares his innermost thoughts and desires, both good and perhaps not-so much. He’s a bit of an uber-confessor (the perfect example of what I’m talking about in this month’s column -- dude shares just a tad too much!), but the lush orchestration and occasional foray into sarcasm and self-deprecation balances out what otherwise might seem a little too earnest. Dammit, these albums make my heart swoon -- that’s how beautiful they are. But songs like “Chicken Bones” (from ‘Queen of Denmark’) and “GMF” (from ‘Pale Green Ghosts’) also make me want to laugh (perhaps not haha funny, but with bitter irony), shake my fist at the world, and go out and kick some a**. “Pale Green Ghosts” was just named a nominee for a 2013 Q Award, considered one of the biggest musical honors in Britain. Now the masses across the pond just need to jump on the John Grant train....

By RICH Larson editor@southernminnscene.com ow could we do a Halloween issue without some ghost stories?

Especially stories set in Southern Minnesota, where there are ghosts aplenty. There must be something about this place, that just makes it tough for people to leave, even after they’ve passed on. There are stories upon stories of haunted bars, restaurants, college dormitories, houses (of course), and sections of woods where people just don’t want to go. Christopher S. Larsen is a published authority on the subject, having written a number of books including Ghosts of Southeastern Minnesota and Haunted Mantorville. Most of the people he’s spoken to are just regular folks with remarkable experiences. “I’ve talked to people as normal as you and me telling some pretty scary stories,” he said. “You sit with them, and you know they believe the

things they’re telling you.” Some of these stories really are scary. In fact, they’re too scary. Not included in these tales is the story of the old haunted farm outside of Waseca which was host to one of the most gruesome unsolved murders in state history, or Sarah, who haunted the old Northfield middle school. There are dozens of stories about the old West Hills orphanage outside of Owatonna. There’s the story of poor six year old Anne Marie Twente, but you’ll have to go look her up for yourself. The stories we present to you here are, for the most part, first person accounts. Like Larsen says, they come from everyday people who happen to have experienced something unexplainable. They just happen to have seen the creepy side of Southern Minnesota.

Mantorville, MN, population 1200, is an unassuming little town in Dodge County, about 25 miles due West of Owatonna, in the Zumbro River Valley. The entire downtown area has been placed on the National Historic Register, and has been

A d d y o u r e v e n t f o r F R E E t o t h e T I M E L I N E c a l e n d a r . G O TO w w w. s o u t h ernminn . c o mm / s c ene / c a len d a r & C l i c k + A d d a n E v ent


preserved just as it was 140 years ago. With that historic preservation come the inevitable ghost stories. Mantorville has a lot of ghost stories. It would seem that for every living person in Mantorville, there is at least one ghost. Three of those ghosts, according to locals, reside in the Mantorville Opera House. The stately old theater was built in 1918 after a fire had wiped out a large section of the town, as a place for people to come together. Over the years, the building has been used as a boarding house, a roller rink, the city hall, and a civic center. In the 1970’s, it was returned to its original use, and now houses the Mantorville Theater Company. Melissa Ferris is full time wife and mother, who is also an artist, an occasional theater director and an amateur historian. She’s one of the authorities on Mantorville’s unearthly population. “Two of the ghosts in the Opera House have names. We call the one in the basement Harold. It’s just a name someone gave him. He’s actually gives off an oppressively mean spirited feeling. We try to leave him alone as much as we can.” “I believe there’s another ghost in what would be the balcony area who doesn’t like bad music. He’s not very mean, but he becomes agitated if someone is playing the piano poorly on the stage, and bangs things around upstairs.” Ferris suspects he is a paino player who was very involved with the opera house in its earliest days. And then there’s Ellen. She’s what Ferris calls the “upstairs host ghost”, making herself known in the auditorium, the green room, and some of the backstage storage rooms. The name was given to her by one of the original theater troops who set up shop after the 70’s renovation. Evidently, after having become aware of a presence, they got out the trusted Ouija Board, and Ellen was the name they divined. “The rumor is, Ellen’s looking for something, a piece of jewelry maybe. People will put down glasses, or jewelry and they’ll disappear, only to turn up somewhere else. There’s another rumor that she’s searching for her child, who died in an influenza epidemic.” “She turns on lights, so she can look around. You’ll be the last person in the building, and you can be absolutely sure you shut off all the lights. Then as you’re driving across the bridge toward Mantorville, you’ll see one of the lights are on upstairs. She does it all the time.” Rumor has it someone has even snapped a photo of Ellen sitting on one of the prop sofa’s owned by the theater company. “We call it Ellen’s couch.” Ferris’ strongest experience with Ellen came on the closing night of one of her first productions at the Opera House. “We did a play called the Woman in Black. It’s a two man show, with a third, unbilled, actress who plays the woman in Black. She goes unbilled so her appearance really freaks out the audience. Ellen became very attached to this play.” “On the closing night, just outside of the stage door, one of the actors found a grey stray cat. He picked it up, and we were petting it when the cat looked sharply at the door, and then bolted out of his arms, ran

into the street, was hit by a car, and not seen again.” “The performance that night was crazy. I was running the lights, which became increasingly difficult. Lights started going on and off on their own, some lights wouldn’t turn on when you moved the switch, others wouldn’t turn off. There’s a strobe light used in the play, and it turned itself on all by itself. The board was useless.” “I looked over at the director with my hands in the air, and he’s looking at me going ‘What’s happening?” “Finally, the sound guy, who had been a part of a number of productions at the Opera House said ‘This is Ellen.’ I hadn’t heard of her yet, so he explained who she was to me.” Pulling out of her parking spot that night to drive home, Ferris found that the stray cat had crawled under her car and died. A few months later, the Opera House was visited by a paranormal investigator. “While we were poking around in the empty theater we all heard, and there’s a recording of this, a cat meowing and a baby crying,” said Ferris. Could Ellen have found her child and taken in a grey stray kitty, too? Melissa Ferris conducts walking tour of all Mantorville’s haunted spots.

Terry Neumann is a tradesman and a mechanical engineer who grew up in the Bay Area of California. He and his wife Ginger owned and operated a bed & breakfast in Hawaii before deciding they needed to be back on the mainland. So, in 2005, they purchased Mrs. B’s Historic Lanesboro Inn, a 9 room B&B in a 130 year old building in tiny, picturesque Lanesboro, MN. “It was a derelict property when we bought it, in dire need of repair,” said Terry. “There was a lot that needed to be repaired and remodeled.” The first order of business was figuring out the electrical problems. A housekeeper who, as Neumann put it, “sort of came with the Inn,” told him that the lights in the hallway would constantly blow out. There would be a surge, the lights would glow extremely bright, and then burn out. This was happening constantly. “So, I checked the sconces, but every single one of them was fine. The wiring was right – in fact it was relatively new – and there was no reason for it to be happening.” With nothing to repair, Neumann replaced the fixtures and the bulbs. “The next day, the same thing started happening again.”

Figuring he had missed something, but under a tight schedule, Neumann removed the sconces and capped them, intending to return to them when he could investigate the situation more thoroughly. “So, that was right after we moved in,” he said. “It wasn’t until the fall that I realized we had ghosts.” The Inn had closed to guests for the season, and Neumann had set about the task of remodeling the bedrooms. “I was working in Room 1. I had all my tools laid out on the floor, and went into the bathroom to get that ready. I came back out to grab my tools, but half of them were gone.” He asked Ginger if she knew where they were, checked his tool boxes in the cellar, checked his truck. Nothing. Reluctantly, he came to the conclusion that he had misplaced them. He even drove into Rochester to buy new ones. “Three days later, I walked into Room 2, and there were my tools, laid out on the floor.” Nobody had been in Room 2. Neumann had the key. “That’s when I started to figure something was messing with me.” He started noticing other weird things, too. “I always make sure all the lights are off in all the rooms. I’m a business owner, and I need to keep my costs down wherever I can. If nobody is in a room, the lights are off.” Yet, every time he’d look into the window of Room 1, the light would be on. “I’d go inside, go upstairs, shut the light off, come back downstairs, go outside, look in the window, and the light would be on.” It was in Room 3 when things started to get really interesting. “I had finished up the work on the light sconces, and I asked Ginger to come in to take a look. We were standing there watching

From 9 it when we heard the click.” The light on the opposite side of the room had suddenly switched itself on. “We got out of there immediately,” he said, laughing. But what happened next wouldn’t be quite so laughabale. The very next day, Ginger was in the laundry room. “She was standing by the laundry tubs, and from the doorway in walked this big shadowy figure. He was about 6’4”, wearing a long dark coat, and a hat. He walked right passed her, into the bathroom. “And then he disappeared.” They hadn’t told anybody about the disturbances up to this point, but a 6’4” apparition was tough to ignore, so they started asking around town about the history of the building. “And it was like everyone in town looked at us, and said ‘So, you finally figured out you have ghosts’!” The housekeeper even approached Ginger and said “You saw him?” “Who?”, asked Ginger. “The man in the coat. I see him all the time. I just didn’t want you to think I was crazy.” Neumann was contacted by the After Hours Paranormal team, based in Southern Minnesota. After their investigation, Neumann said they had a lot to tell him. “They said there was more spirit activity in this building than at the Myrtle’s Plantation in Louisiana,” which bills itself as one of the most haunted houses in America. As it turns out, the building that houses Mrs. B’s had been the original furniture store in Lanesboro, and the upstairs had housed the offices of Dr. David Powell for seven years. “This was a mill town,” said Neumann. “Industrial accidents were common. We figure more

than a few people died on Doc Powell’s operating table while he was here.” Doc Powell was also a close friend of the legendary character Buffalo Bill Cody. Legend has it that one night over a couple bottles of whiskey, Buffalo Bill’s Wild, Wild West show was conceived in Room 1. Some have speculated that the apparition is Buffalo Bill himself. Others say the man fits Doc Powell’s description. Neummann,won’t speculate. “I don’t know who they are, but they’re here. In fact, I’m downstairs by our checkout desk, which is adjacent to the kitchen. I’m the only one here, but right now there are pots and pans banging around back there.” Mrs. B’s Historic Lanesboro Inn is located at 101 Parkway Ave. N in Lanesboro. They are open for guests from April through October. Contact them at (507) 467-2154 or mrsbsinn@gmail.com.

“Is the library haunted?” “Y’know, I’ve never heard a story from there. Why? Did something happen?” Two weeks before, she had gone to the library looking for some friends. The way the library is set up, you enter on the third floor. Her friends would always go down to the second floor, and there was an area over to the left where they would study. She walks in the librabry, like 11:00 at night, heads for the center stairwell, and goes down one flight, to the second floor landing. Down on the landing, there was an old woman standing at a book return cart. She said the woman just looked out of place. Like, there was something not right about the way she was dressed; like from the 50’s. She looked like a normal person, just dressed oddly. She said the woman didn’t look like anyone she’d ever seen before, that she had a very unique look. She was standing at the cart, re-arranging the books and mumbling to herself. She looked annoyed, and was very pre-occupied with getting these books in order. The student said to this lady “Can I help you?” The woman kind of looked up from the cart, mumbled something she couldn’t understand, shook her head no, and went back to re-arranging the books. She exited the stairwell, and went down the next flight of stairs to find her friends on the second floor. Now, at St. Olaf College, if you work there for 25 or 30 years, they hang a portrait of you in the library when you die. It’s a nice gesture. If you give your career to St. Olaf, they hang your portrait to remember you forever. So she made the left, and as she was walking, she was approaching a picture. And as she got closer, she realized the portrait is of the lady she just saw in the stairwell. She turned around, went right back to the stairwell, and the woman was gone. Cart was there, woman was gone. I said, “Well, it doesn’t sound that strange.” She said “You go look at that picture. She doesn’t look like anyone else. I’m telling you, it was her.”

So, the next morning I go talk to the librarian, and I say “Hey, is your library haunted?” He says “The library is not haunted.” I said, “Well, I have a story, man.” So we go down and look at the picture, and, it’s true, she’s a unique looking woman. Her name was Charlotte Jacobsen. She was a librarian and an english professor from 1938 to 1974. Worked at the college for a heck of a long time. Died in ‘92, so this was twelve years after she died. I look at the picture and I said “this is the woman that student saw.” The librarian said, “No this is not right. It’s not true. I’ve never heard that before. Charlotte Jacobsen is not haunting the library.” Well, there were people working in the Library who had known her. I said “Let’s go find one of them.” So we call down, and it’s kind of funny because I know who we talked to, but there are dozens of people now who claim to be the person we found. So, I’m telling this person the story, and her eyes got really wide, and she covered her mouth and said “Oh my God.” “What?” “Greg, that’s what Charlotte did.” And I said “I don’t understand. What are you talking about?” Charlotte retired in 1974, and died in 1992. But she’d never married, and she didn’t have any children or family. St. Olaf was her life. so, when she retired, nothing changed. Charlotte kept coming to work. She volunteered, she would help out, she’d have lunch up here, she’d go have coffee, she would read. She was just always there. But the other thing she did was walk through the stacks, and would just get annoyed that the student library workers wouldn’t get the books in the right order when they put them back on the shelves. So, she would walk through the stacks, and re-order the books so they were in the right order, and she would mumble while she was doing it. She was so upset that they couldn’t master the Dewey Decimal system, she would just be annoyed, and students would see her and wonder who the mean old mumbling lady was. So, she finishes telling me this, and looks at me and says “Do you understand what I’m saying?” “Greg, that girl saw Charlotte.”

This isn’t so much a ghost story as it is a creepy curiosity that has inspired countless legends. There is a house in Janesville, MN. It’s one of those old Victorians that looks beautiful in the daylight and haunted like crazy at night. Except this one was pretty creepy during the day, too. In a tiny attic window, there sat for decades, a doll. A plain white, no frills doll. Staring out the window, day after day. Never moving (except maybe it did...?). Watching over Old Highway 14. It was always there, blank faced and emotionless. The owner of the house, Mr. Ward Wendt, would never disclose why it was there. So, naturally, tales of its origin sprouted up like grass on the prairie. There’s the story of a little girl who loved her doll so much that she would never put it down. She and the doll were inseparable. One day the girl was playing in her yard and went chasing after a ball that had rolled out onto Highway 14. Tragically, the doll she was holding blocked her view of the car coming down the highway that struck and killed her. Her grief stricken parents hung the doll in the window as a reminder for drivers to watch out for children in the streets. Another talks about a young boy who hanged himself in the attic, the doll placed in the window as a memorial. Yet another has it that a couple left on a long vacation, entrusting the care of their daughter to a friend of the family. However, this friend had always secretly despised the girl – there are a million different versions of why – and locked her in the attic. When the parents arrived home they found the girl dead, sitting in a chair, looking out the window, watching for her parents to come home and save her. The mother sat the doll in the little girl’s chair and left it there to call attention to the plight of child abuse and neglect. Not to be outdone, still one more legend says that the doll was actually a demon that disguised itself, and placed a curse on all who stared at it for too long. Whatever the reason was, Mr. Wendt refused to tell the story. In 1976, however, he did write it down and placed it in a time capsule during Janesville’s 4th of July Bicentennial celebration. The capsule is scheduled to be opened on July 4th, 2176. Mr. Wendt passed away in 2012, never

telling a soul what the doll’s meaning was. It was removed from the attic shortly after his death, and eventually found its way to the Janesville Public Library, where, according to Librarian Nicole Krienke, it sits “in the window looking out onto the corner of Main Street and 2nd Street.” Filmmaker Dan Kettler made a short documentary about the doll, entitled The Janesville Baby. You can find it on YouTube, and we’ve provided a link to it from this story on SouthernMinnScene.com. Do you believe yet? Are you reading this alone and suddenly wondering if you feel something behind you? Are you turning the light off in your bedroom and jumping under the covers because something may or may not be there? Are you wondering how true all this is? “The bottom line,” said Larsen, “is you can choose to believe the stories or not. But you’re never going to know if they’re true until you experience it yourself.” He’s right. You can choose to believe that there’s no ghostly librarian at St. Olaf, or that there was just a weird power surge that night in Mantorville, and all of this is just a bunch of hooey. Just remember, we haven’t even begun to understand how the universe works. Maybe there are portals, and psychic echoes. Maybe that creak you here behind you isn’t a loose floor board.

of many and couldn’t really sew. So he worked with what he did have: a football helmet, a pair of long johns, and some tin foil. He was underway with a football helmet covered in tin foil and topped off with a car hood ornament. Dahle than created a green flowing cap from the window curtains. Finally he donned his red long johns added some tin foil of course, and finished it off some foil covered boots. Dahle ended up winning a few costumes contest over the years with Foil Man, and still has him hanging somewhere in the back of a closet. “Not an avid costume maker, but that one worked pretty well,” bragged Dahl. “I did lose the hood ornament at some point and replaced it with a giant scale I found at an antique store though.” Now what is the point of all that work if no one sees it? Most local bars have Halloween parties, costumes contest, and some form of music; whether it is a DJ or live band. According to Renee Wunderlich, head bartender at Spikes in Faribault, you don’t need to have the wildest or most unique costume to win the big prize at parties. “They have more of a chance to win when they are homemade I think,” said Wunderlich who has been a bartender for 14years, “but they most importantly have to win the crowd.” The crowd votes at the majority of costume contests. Storch, who has judged a few costume contests, has noticed that more often than not it is the person or group who has been at the bar all night and stayed in character the entire time that takes the cake. Before you go out be sure you can tolerate your costume all night, some tips from the American Red Cross for kids also apply to adults. Be sure to try your costume on before heading out. Can you see, walk, and go to the bathroom? Most importantly though, “…try to make it your own personality,” advises Dahle. “Have a lot of fun not only creating it, but thinking of it; just have fun.” Foil Man has spoken. Happy creating!

SoMinn has plenty of haunted houses, guaranteed to give everyone their fright fix. By BLAIR CLINToN editor@southernminnscene.com

he creek of the floorboards. The blinding darkness that makes you feel for the walls to help guide you. The moans and groans of someone - or something - coming from the basement are following you. The hair on the back of your neck is on high alert, and you just want to get out; this was a bad idea. You turn the corner, and there you encounter what you knew was coming, but it’s still enough to make you do everything in your power not to make a mess in your pants. It is a crazed butcher who is laughing, with a cleaver, making a lasso out of someone’s intestine. You run down the

dark steps and down the final hallway past the headless clown, vampire feast, and the doctor who obviously broke the Hippocratic Oath. You finally reach outside and all you can do is laugh at how frightened you were, and now you find yourself wanting to go back in. It’s that time of year again haunted house goers! This year, there are plenty of places you can find in the southern Minnesota area to feed your need for a good fright.

Fright at the Farm One of this year’s bloodcurdling attractions is the Rochester Horror Presents:

Walk this way, please...

“Fright at the Farm” at the George Stopple farmstead located within the History Center of Olmstead County in Rochester. “Fright at the Farm” is in its third year and was created by Ted “Draco” Galaty. Rochester Horror was born when Draco, who is a local actor and producer, started scaring people in need for a fright when he transformed his old Tudor house into “Horror on Colonial Lane” in time for the Halloween season. “It got to a point where I was attracting too many people, and due to regulations I had to move it out of my home. So, the relationship was built between Rochester Horror and the History Center of Olmstead County.” Draco, now in his third year at the History Center, recreated the historic Stopple farmstead as his setting for the haunted attraction. The patrons’ favorite scene features a crazed butcher in an old smokehouse. Along your path you will encounter a cemetery with a haunted hearse, the haunted barn, a spiders’ den, a witch’s lair, the headless horseman stables, clown town, and the “Maze of Terror.” If you are lucky, Draco may even be your tour guide for the evening. Draco utilizes between 30-50 volunteers each night to put on the production of “Fright at the Farm.” If you are interested in volunteering, please email galatyt@yahoo. com. I tried to get some privy information about what to expect this year at the History Center, but all I could get out of Draco was “Terror and horror.” Draco did give me some tidbits, such as the Zombie Express Bus. That is one mode of transportation you might not want to try! What Draco really wants is to “Incorporate some of the ideas

from horror movies. I like to make it a game where you have to choose the right answers to get through something. It is a place to challenge your mind as well.” Fright at the Farm starts on October 10th and runs through November 2nd. Guided tours through the attraction begin at 7:00 PM and end at 11:00 PM each night. This is not recommended for children, however, there are family friendly presentations listed on the website www.rochesterhorror.com. Portions of the proceeds go the History Center of Olmstead County and Brighter Tomorrows, An Outreach to Families Touched by Childhood Cancer.

Support Our Troops Haunted House What started out as a Halloween party that just consisted of family and friends on a family farm for a son who was heading off to Iraq, has turned into a ninety volunteer operation at the Farmington 4H Building at the Dakota County Fairgrounds that supports the troops. This was made possible by Germaine Beyl, who now has two sons in the armed forces. Germaine likes to describe her haunted house as, “tastefully scary”, where there is an annual theme that accompanies the scares. “One year we had a ‘Bloody Mary’ theme and also a ‘Haunted House Realty’ theme. This year it is the ‘Farmington Fright’ theme where we will have a maze full of surprises.” At this haunted house, Germaine and her

terrors will be playing on people’s everyday fears of what is exactly under the bed or lurking in the closet. “Our volunteers try to make our guests think if the scene is actually real or not.” Stated Germaine. At the haunted house, there is also face painting, food and entertainment, and stilt walkers. When you are going through the maze, you are totally on your own! And if you’ve known Germaine long enough, chances are that you’ve been involved with the haunted house. Volunteers from cheerleading groups, Farmington High School Royalty, civic and business groups, and from the 4H all participate in the fright. What is really important about this is the $5.00 donation customers pay that goes to the troops. These donations affect any soldier that has been deployed in forms of gift and treat packages that are sent to the Armed Forces Service Center, purchases of Easy-Up shade shelters through the help of Thrivent Financial, welcome home and Christmas dinners, parties for military units, and donations

for family readiness groups which include Warrior to Citizen. The haunted house is also a sponsor in the Wounded Warrior Golf Tournament. The Support Our Troops Haunted House is a one weekend only shot on October 3rd-5th! So make sure you check it out! The haunted house is family friendly, though not necessarily recommended for children under seven years old. For more information, you can visit www.supportourtroopshh.com.

Scream Town One of the largest, scariest haunts in Minnesota is Scream Town, located right in Chaska. In this wonderland of hell, you are left to your own devices to get through 400,000 square feet of fear. Scream Town also has over 90 permanent actors on site that love what they do. There are six attractions in Scream Town which include Redneck Resort; where I’m sure these

hillbillies will be none too pleased to see you. At the Oak Blood Forest, it is incredibly difficult to find your way out, and the Blood family will be looking for you. If you make it out of the forest, it may be time to commit you to the Circus Asylum and spend some time with the original insane clown posse in a 7,000 square feet maze. Once out of the asylum, you may have to enter the secret backwoods of Abandoned. In these woods, you will have to sign a waiver, as these fiends and beasts actually can come out and grab you! New attractions this year include Meltdown at Sector 666; where you will have to find your way through a nuclear power plant that is about to blow, and Farmer’s Revenge; where a local farmer has had enough with life, and is looking to take it out on someone else. Scream Town is a family oriented environment as it is an alcohol-free zone. However, this place is not recommended for children under ten. Scream Town starts on weekends on October 4th, and ends on the weekend of

Le Sueur County Paranormal Society investigates the

McConville recalls physical contact with spirit By JAMES STITT jstitt@lecenter.com

Dan McConville shows how his tools work to identify abnormalities. Though he uses different tools, he said the body is the most useful one, as ghosts react to the living. (James Stitt/Le Center Leader)

ometimes there are things that happen that go unexplained, a door slamming shut, the sound of footsteps in an empty house or the eerie feeling that someone is watching you, but the Le Sueur County Paranormal Society aims to find the answers. “I want to help people understand, and tell them they’re not crazy,” said Dan McConville, founder of the society. “There is another world out there. There is more to us than what we see.” McConville founded the society about five years ago, but he has been learning about the paranormal his entire life. He grew up around the supernatural, as his aunt and

grandmother were psychics. McConville said he would be talking to them when all of the sudden, they would hear conversations with someone else. McConville has spent his time and resources investigating ghostly encounters with people. When he gets a tip, he sets up an interview with the person. He offers his services for free, because he is looking for answers, not money. “I have had so many personal experiences, I just want to help find answers,” said McConville. “If it’s not volunteer, the group is not credible. If the group asks for money, they are just there to get a thrill.” McConville usually can tell whether or not it is a ghost when

he interviews a person. When there are too may details, it usually isn’t a ghost. “When they say it always happens on Friday, at a certain time, when the moon is full, and there are no clouds, it’s not real,” said McConville. After the interview, McConville moves on to the actual investigation, which is different every time. Sometimes it only takes an hour to find the cause, and other times it can take an entire night. He said that about half the times it turns out to be something simple, like an animal making the noises, but other times it can be unnatural. One of the times that McConville made contact with a ghost, was when he was investigating the spirit of an elderly woman. He was walking down an empty hallway and kept getting pinched by something behind him. “It was supposedly the ghost of an older woman, and she kept pinching me,” he said. “I kept telling her to knock it off and she kept doing it. She was trying to get my attention.” McConville said that two types of hauntings are the most common — residual haunting and poltergeist. In residual haunting, there is not much you can do, as it will happen no matter what. It is often innocent behavior though, such as the sound of footsteps or the shutting of a door. The poltergeist haunting can be referred to as a noisy ghost, or one that moves items around. McConville said the other two types of hauntings are less likely to happen. Intelligent haunting is where the spirit interacts with a person. Someone can ask questions of the ghost and it will respond with an action. The last type of haunting is demonic, and is the most dangerous. When it is demonic, people can be hurt and the spirit can follow them home. There are a few notable sites in Le Sueur County that have been linked to hauntings. One of the notorious hauntings is believed to be linked to the Montgomery National Golf Course. According to Minnesota Ghosts, the spirit of a former farmer that lived on the land before the golf course can be seen at various spots on the course, wear-

ing a hat and overalls. Another reported haunted location is in the city of Le Sueur. According to the Minnesota Paranormal Investigators Group, an area south of town known as Old Brewery Hill is haunted. There have been reports that the man who once owned a brewery on the hill walks around the area holding his lantern. “Apparently, the hermit who lived in the cave had died long ago, but someone was seen leaving the place at night and walking along the railroad tracks! A brakeman aboard a passing train reported that one night, the train was forced to stop because of someone carrying a lantern along the tracks. When the brakeman got down from the train to remove the man from the path

of the train, there was no one there. The engineer and several workers on the train all swore that they had seen a red lantern.” according to the Minnesota Paranormal Investigators website. McConville said that more people are beginning to, if not believe in them, at least talk about the possibility of ghosts. He said that even though the topic is becoming more acceptable, it can still be a scary though for some. “A lot of times it’s scary,” said McConville. “It’s the paranormal, that means it’s not normal.” Reporter James Stitt can be reached at 931-8572 or follow him on Twitter @LCL_j_stitt.

Mrozinski performing on NBC’s the Voice.

The Continuing Journey of

Nicholas David

Mrozinski By RICH Larson editor@southernminnscene.com

T Mrozinski performed before a loving, enthusiastic crowd at the Big Wu Family Reunion in August.

From small clubs in St. Paul to the glitz and glammer of Hollywood, and back again, Nicholas David maintains his spiritual core. 18

Our new friend has no idea how common that sentiment is.

rying to find a place to have a nice quiet conversation in the midst of an outdoor music festival is as difficult as it sounds. Especially when the guy you want to talk to has just played a spectacular set in front of about 500 adoring fans in the sweet sunshine of a late summer Saturday afternoon. But that is the situation confronting Nicholas David Mrozinski and me. Here we are at the Big Wu Family Reunion, the happiest, most festive annual gathering of hippies in Southern Minnesota, and, man, we just want to rap. After wandering around for a couple minutes, he suggests we sit down on the ground, just in front of the backstage entrance. Which, because it’s surrounded by vans and tents, turns out to be the perfect spot. There’s a security guard, just doing his job, who questions whether or not we should be sitting there. “No, it’s okay,”says Nick, “we’re just doing an interview.” The guard, misunderstanding the nature of our visit looks at me and asks “Are you the boss?” “Not even close.” I answer. “Well, give him the job anyway. He looks like a cool dude.”

Nicholas David Mrozinski (the Mrozinski has seemed optional, but one gets the feeling he’d like us to use it), has been on a very rare ride for about 18 months. Most of you know the story: singer/songwriter from St. Paul is chosen be a part of the blind auditions on NBC’s hit series The Voice. Looking nothing like your typical 21st century pop star, he joins team Cee Lo, and becomes the surprise hit of the show. America responded to his brand of stirred up electrified soul, with love and enthusiasm. Mrozinski survived cut after cut, finally finishing in third place. So what happens when the cameras are off, the confetti has settled, and Cee Lo Green and Carson Daly have gone home? Nick Mrozinski just keeps going. “There’ve been many adventures and so many twists and turns,” he says. “It’s been great. This summer has been so busy. We’re doing charity stuff, non-profit stuff, family stuff, recording stuff, some rock shows here and there, but you know it’s been more getting ready for the fall tour.” Starting October 4th, he and his band, the Feelin’ Band, are joining

the Avett Brothers on tour for a couple weeks. Prior to that he’ll be playing a series of showcase events, beginning with a stop at the famed El Rey Theater on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. Later in December, he’ll play a two night stand at the Paramount Theater in St. Cloud, preparing for another two night stand, December 27-28th at First Ave in Minneapolis (Mrozinski played a sold out two night stand at First Ave in May to rave reviews). He’s also recording a new album. We live in the age of the instant celebrity. The 15 minutes of fame Andy Warhol predicted for all of us seems more like a strong possibility than an idiosyncratic observation. Reality TV can make someone famous. What they do with that fame is up to them. Mrozinski intends to strike while the iron is hot, but on his own terms and in his own way. He looks at everything that has come his way with as much thought and reflection as he can muster. “(Earlier this year) we put out an EP that went straight to digital, it went really well. It sat at number one on the alternative charts for a couple weeks, and got all the way to number two on the top albums...and it got the attention of some big record companies, so we’re entertaining some offers.” With so much debate these days on the value of being with a big re-

cord company, is he interested in signing on with a major label? “Yes and no. As with anything I consider all of it a gift and an opportunity and I like to consider all options as opposed to just being completely closed off, because then I won’t know anything about it and I won’t learn. So, it was really wild to go back to LA and meet with them. So, on one hand I kind of already am doing it all on my own, and have been and will do it on my own, regardless.” A gift. A blessing. An adventure. A lesson. Mrozinski frequently sprinkles these words into our conversation. This is a very spiritual man. He feels everything happening in his life is part of a bigger plan, but he’s certainly enjoying the ride. It’s through that outlook that has allowed him to maintain a grounded sense of who he is. He’s not taking any of his good fortune for granted. “Through prayer, through meditation, through reflection, through sobriety, through working out, through spending time with my kids...I just try to keep it today to today, right now to right now.” “The truth is, I feel so very blessed,” he continues. “I’ve really tried to stay present to the adventure and the moment. I don’t know how else to deal with it. Because if I start to think about it and get in my head about it, I start thinking, man, I’m doing this, this, this and this, and going here and there, and here and there. Starting here at the Reunion, I’m busy through January and if I look at it like this to January, I’ll throw up everywhere.” That kind of focus comes through his faith, which becomes more and more apparent as we talk. “Whatever you call it, y’know God, Goddess, spirit, science, whatever it is to you, I have a living relationship with that, and I’ve been asking for that grace to have my spirituality and my beliefs kind of mix with all of it, and that’s what’s happening.” Before the Voice, Nick “The Feelin’” Mrozinski was starting to make some waves in the Twin Cities music scene. (“The gigs were changing,” he says. “There was definitely an upward movement.”) Was he ever concerned that he would face a backlash to his sudden stardom?

“Maybe there’s been some backlash, but, I mean, of course I care what people think of me, but I really don’t. Because, I’m going to do what I’m going to do. I’m going to play what I play. And if people like that, that’s just really awesome. I feel like the reason I came to Earth was to play music and share music. Without trying to sound (arrogant), I feel like I was made for this. People come up to me and it’s almost like ‘Oh, I’m sorry I’m asking for your autograph or for your photo’ or whatever, and I’m like ‘Listen I love this stuff. I love it.’ People are like ‘can I get a picture with you?’ Yes. ‘Can my sister get a picture with you?’ Yes. I’m just giving back love that’s already been given to me.” He’s very grateful to the people at the Voice for giving him the opportunity. “I call it the best music school of my life,” he says. And even after his time on the show was over he was feeling the love and gratitude. “I was able to go back on the show and play my own song, which was pretty amazing. I remember as I was getting ready to go, I was looking at my feet. I always look at my feet – just to remind me of where I’ve been – and I was thinking, I’m back on this stage. And there were all those times when I’d be singing all those songs, and I’d be like “Gosh, I wish I could just sing one of my songs”, and as I was looking at my feet I heard my old self say that. Wow. What happened? God is good.” So now he’s touring like crazy, writing new music (“There hasn’t been a shortness on inspiration. The well has just been overflowing.”), recording a new album he hopes to put out in early 2014 (“I’ve had some cool opportunities to record in Hollywood, and that was fun and interesting. I’ll always be recording in Minnesota, because that’s home base. But it is kind of fun to go over there.”). He intends to stay busy and not slow down. “We’re going to tour in support of the new album, there’s a possibility of going to Europe in late spring next year. Man, while it’s going and the light’s being shown, I just want to give it back and enjoy the ride.” You can reach Rich Larson at editor@southernminnscene.com.

AMY MERRIT AMY’S TV CRUSH

I. Love. Television. Love it. I’m

not a snob about it either. I’ll watch (almost) anything, from overproduced reality shows to crappy sitcom reruns. But I do know when something is good, special. So I’ll agree with everyone who’s seen it--The Wire is the best television show ever to air. I can watch it over and over, and still appreciate every aspect and nuance of its brilliance. More on that later. But here’s the thing—it’s not my favorite show of all time. That would be Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In the coming months, I’ll bring you my insights, theories, recommendations, and wildly unsupported opinions about a wide variety of current and past television shows. But for now, in the spirit of Halloween, I’m compelled to talk a little more about Buffy. On the surface, Buffy is another supernatural drama with cute teenage girls and hot vampires. But it is so much more. I don’t have space to tell you all the reasons why you need to see it, for that you can turn to the over 200 books and academic journal articles devoted to the Buffy. But I’ll tell you a few of the most compelling reasons to become a Superfan. Creator Joss Whedon has brilliantly turned the pretty blond girl who dies in every horror movie into the pretty blond girl who kicks ass every single day. He has said that the mission of the show was “the joy of female power: having it, using it, sharing it.” In the supernatural or

horror genres, this is rare enough. In the teenage drama genre, it’s almost unheard of. Buffy is hilarious. I’ll admit that especially in the low-budget first season, I laugh at the monster makeup and the cheesy sets as much as I do at the real wit. Buffy hits its stride by the

2

second season, but continues to be self-aware of the camp value that gives the show so much of its charm. The dialogue is quick, and riddled with pop-culture references and clever “buffyisms.” I once convinced a friend to watch 5 ½ seasons just to get to the payoff of the incredible musical-comedy episode “Once More, with

Feeling,” which airs in the 6th season. I promise you…it’s totally worth devoting your entire Fall to Buffy just to get there. If you time it right, the musical episode will make January seem so much brighter. “High school as Hell.” This was Whedon’s concept as he started developing the show, and it really works. In the Buffyverse, “typical teenage problems” are never trivial, because Buffy and her friends have to fight literal monsters to resolve them. Adults aren’t always right, and they certainly aren’t always good. An overbearing parent can turn an insecure sophmore into a real menace, a bullying boyfriend is not ever going to change for the better, ignoring responsibilities really could be the end of the world. In this high school, every problem is major, and as Buffy faces the day-today fight, she still has to worry about “The Big Bad,” a buffyism that describes each season’s larger and more terrifying threat. This is no after school special, but in the end loyal friends are everything. Well, loyal friends, and some badass martial arts moves. So let’s face it, So. Minn. Like Buffy, we are strong, adventurous, even fearless as we confront The Big Bad Winter. Many of you thrive this time of year as the snow falls and the skis, sleds, and skates come out. But at some point, your toes will get cold, your nose will run, and damnit the sun will go down. Fire up the Netflix and head to Buffy’s hometown, Sunnydale.

The Studio ArTour of South Central Minnesota, South Central Minnesota October 19th & 20th Art fairs are cool, because not only do you get to take in a number of pieces from on artist, but quite often, you have an opportunity to speak with the artists themselves. The Studio ArTour of South Central Minnesota takes that concept a step further, by allowing you to actually visit the artist in their workspace. You get a feel for context as well as the thoughts and creativity behind the work. Plus, you get to see all the cool stuff they use to create (blowtorches!). This is no tiny little community art fair. This is 40 artists, in 20 studios scattered from Cannon Falls to Faribault. The entire tour is too big to do in one day, so visit www.studioartour.com to plan your visit – or just block out the weekend to see the whole thing. PS - it takes a lot of effort to put an event like this together. Make sure you visit the community page on their website, and support the businesses that support the arts in Southern Minnesota. The Studio ArTour of South Central Minnesota runs Saturday, October 19th 10AM – 6PM and Sunday, October 20 11AM – 5PM. – – Rich Larson, editor@southernminnscene.com

Skewed View / Pauly’s Pub / New Prague / 9.28

Lowbrow High-Octane, Northfield September 20th For those of us who are not classic car enthusiasts, but can certainly appreciate the coolness of a hotrod, Lowbrow can come as either a bit of a shock, or an eye-opening, and sometimes eyepopping experience. Northfield’s Division Street will be lined for blocks with souped up, restored classics. The people own the cars and want to show them off are just as interesting. Think 50’s style greasers, covered in tattoos and dressed in their best 1960 attire. Don’t worry, they won’t bite. By and large, these are some really cool people who have built a community around their love for classic American automobiles. But Lowbrow is more than just cars. Organizer Nick Sinclair, one of SoMinn’s most gifted artists, has organized a gallery show of hot rod art, and music bill that always includes surprisingly good music. This year’s bill includes Minneapolis’ Violent Shifters and Seattle’s Wild Cat Choir, and local bands Matt Arthur & the Bratlanders and Wisconsintration Camp. For most good, button-down, conservative SoMinnesotans, this is an opportunity to take a tiny little taste of the wild side. Lowbrow-High Octane is September 20 in Northfield. Cars start rolling in about 3:30, and will be on the 100, 200, and 300 blocks of Division Street. Music will be at the Contented Cow, starting at 5PM. The art show will hang at the High Noon Gallery, 306 Division Street. All events are free admission. – – Rich Larson, editor@southernminnscene.com

Tributefest: Remembering the Man in Black, Faribault - October 12th I’ve literally seen thousands of concerts. Having been an obsessive music fan for more than thirty years, there aren’t too many bands and performers left on my bucket list. Sonny, I’ve seen ‘em all.But if you were to ask me who is the one performer I’m happiest to have seen, my answer will be sure and immediate: Johnny Cash. It’s no wonder to me that the Paradise Center for the Arts has chosen to honor him with their (we assume) first annual tribute show. Announced performers include Jon Manners and the Rice County Roosters, illustrating how easily the man’s music cuts across generational lines. Cash is one of those guys who’d so popular, it’s like he never died. Some people are so much larger than life they create a legend that keeps there memory alive long after they’re gone. In the ten years since Johnny Cash passed away, his legend has just kept growing. Tributefest 2013: Remembering the Man in Black will be Saturday, October 12th at the Paradise Center for the Arts. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. – – Rich Larson, editor@southernminnscene.com

ginning of 2010 the band was in a state of disarray. Frustrated by the direction the music was taking, the band began having discussions about throwing in the towel and going their separate ways.

Josh Turner: 19-Oct, 8:00 PM, Treasure Island Resort and Casino Minnesota, 5734 Sturgeon Lake Road, Welch, $35+. As a family man, a philanthropist, a devoted Christian, and a passionate sports fan, you might say Josh Turner’s commitments run as deep as his voice. Of course, he’s also a double-platinumselling singer, songwriter and disciple of traditional country music, a mentor to up-and-coming artists and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. All of those layers construct Josh’s new album, Punching Bag. His fifth for MCA Nashville, the record is a knockout collection of bluegrass-influenced barnburners, lonesome laments, and the slow and steady love ballads on which Josh’s trademark baritone excels. The follow-up to 2010’s Haywire, which yielded the No. 1 hits ‘Why Don’t We Just Dance’ and ‘All Over Me,’ Punching Bag represents Josh in fighting shape. Throughout all 11 songs, he bobs and weaves like a champ, exhibiting new range in both his voice and his songwriting. Josh penned eight of the record’s eleven tracks, including the rollicking title song that, he says, set the tone for the entire project.. joshturner. com/tour. 10 Cent Pistol: 19-Oct, 9:00 PM, Buster’s Sports Bar & Grill, 1325 Madison Avenue, Mankato, . 10 Cent Pistol is an experienced group of musicians that love to perform and have a great

Activities are scattered throughout town, including two indoor music stages at the New Ulm Holiday Inn, featuring traditional – and some non-traditional – German music. Eat German sausage! Drink German beer brewed at the Schell’s brewery (get a room at the Holiday Inn, and drink a lot of it)! Learn some German folk dance steps, or just pretend you know some!

The Pines at the Zumbro State Theater, Zumbrota - September 28th If you pay attention to the Twin Cities music scene, there are certain bands and performers that the local media just seems to be in the tank for. The Ericksons comes to mind. As does Dessa, Cloud Cult, and even Duluth’s great indie band Low (which certain Twin Cities writers seem to be co-opting as a Cities band). Don’t get me wrong. All of these performers are fantastic, and make great music. It just makes you wonder why other equally fantastic bands and performers only get a share of this kind of pub. Take The Pines, for example. Their latest album Dark So Gold was released in January to universal (Twin Cities) acclaim. And then, I haven’t read much about them since. I think I’ve heard someone mention them on the Current occasionally, but it’s puzzling that they aren’t getting a ton of love. This is a band that has come into its own. Dark So Gold, with its subtle melodies and quiet indie folk instrumentation, will be on my 10 Best list at the end of the year. Nothing against the Zumbro State Theater, but these guys should be playing the Beacon Theater in New York, or the Fillmore in San Francisco. The fact that you have an opportunity to go check them out in Zumbrota is ridiculously, unbelievably cool. Go. Next time you see them, it’ll be on Jimmy Fallon. The Pines play the Zumbro State Theater on September 28th. Tickets are $18 in advance, and $20 at the door. Visit www.crossingsatcarnegie.com or call 507-732-7616 for details. – – Rich Larson, editor@southernminnscene.com

also enjoyed sold-out tours and a showering of honors, including multiple ACM, CMA, and CMT Music awards, as well as Grammy, Teen Choice, AMA, ACA, and Billboard Music award nominations all of which has cemented the sibling trio as one of the hottest acts in recent history. But despite the validation that comes with such success, Kimberly, Reid, and Neil felt as if they were walking into the unknown when it came time to write and record their second album, which they’ve called Pioneer. ‘People hear the word ‘pioneer’ and they think of covered wagons or astronauts on the moon, but to us the idea of a pioneer is very modern,’ Reid says. ‘It reflects the idea of putting one foot in front of the other when you’re unsure how to get where you’re going. It’s about marching forward and making noise.’ *Ticket prices vary by venue.. thefansperry.com/tour.

Remember when tap dancing was just a bunch of nerds on stage stomping around and looking ridiculous? Me neither, and that’s because tap dancing has always been cool as hell. You don’t have to be some sort of stuffy, highfalootin’ arts snob to appreciate this troupe (although if you are, that’s great, too). Part theater, part concert, the Rhythmic Circus is a group of tap dancers from Minneapolis, who used to hang out at Glueks in downtown Minneapolis, mostly to watch the band that would always play there. One day, they approached that band about putting a show together, and the rest is budding history. They’ve played from New York, to Scotland, to China to LA, and that’s just in the last 12 months. This is a high energy, family friendly show that could conceivably change the way you see the world. Ok, that’s really overstating it, but you’ll have a good time.

MSU Theater & Dance Department presents Les Miserables, Minnesota State Mankato October 3rd - 13th There’s a reason Les Miserables was the big hit movie of the holiday season last year. The epic story, compelling characters, and unforgettable music is all so good, that not even Russell Crowe could ruin it. Good as the movie was, the stage production is better, and something everyone should see. Unfortunately, not everyone in SoMinn has the money to travel to London or New York, or Minneapolis for that matter, just for a trip to the theater. Thank goodness we have institutions down here like Minnesota State University Mankato. To be sure, this is an ambitious project for a college theater department, even one as good as MSU’s. But the department has shown it’s metal the last few years, taking on big productions like Spamalot, Rent, and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera. The theater department and director Paul J. Hustoles should be commended and rewarded for their ambition. Do yourself a favor, and go see Les Miz. Minnesota State Mankato’s production of Les Miserables runs October 3-13 at the Ted Paul Theatre.

Getting a grip:

My introduction to rock climbing

I

’m an advocate of experiencing as many new things as possible. Among other benefits, it gets you out of your comfort zone and challenges you to improve yourself. However, while hanging on for dear life recently at the midway of a 60-foot rock facing in Colorado, I began to have second thoughts about that notion. First a little background. I was in Denver visiting my step brother Derek while on vacation. As a lifelong Minnesotan, mountains were an

unfamiliar thing to me and I longed to explore the nearby ranges. I suggested a multi-day hike, but Derek had other ideas. Since moving to Colorado, my step brother had become a avid rock climber, and since I knew next to nothing about the sport, he figured it was as good a time as any to give me an introduction. To be fair, I wasn’t a complete novice about scaling some rock. There was a climbing wall near my dad’s house that I went to a few times

as a kid and I can proudly claim rock climbing to be among the merit badges I earned in Boy Scouts. However, that was an increasingly long time ago and claiming proficiency in rock climbing after an introductory summer camp course would be like claim-

ing to be a legitimate musician after beating “Freebird” on “Guitar Hero.” Reasoning that it would be a unique experience, I agreed to rock climbing and prepared for it the only way I knew how: by watching it on YouTube. At first glance, it didn’t LOOK like anything too difficult. “Who knows?” I told myself. “You’re in decent shape. You might just be able show Derek a thing or two.” After picking up the necessary rental equipment –- climbing shoes and a safety harness -- we headed out with a few of his friends to a grouping of rocks near Golden, Colo. (home of Coors Brewing Company, fun tidbit) to do some top rope climbing, a beginner style that consists of a rope running from a belayer at ground level through carabiners anchored at the top of the route Derek led the first climb, scurrying up the rock with the ease and confidence of a seasoned mountain goat. Like the YouTube videos, he made it look easy and further established my belief that rock climbing would be a breeze to catch on to. It took about 45 seconds into my climb to realize my belief was misguided. Like most people, I tend to apply my athletic background toward an unfamiliar activity. Since that background includes sports like football, basketball and baseball, I use my upper body for precision needs -- like throwing a baseball or dribbling a basketball -- while my lower body essentially serves two purposes: running and jumping. Consequently, when it came to climbing, my hands and upper body did most of the gripping and pull-up work, while my legs and feet were pretty much there for balance and moral support. Any experienced climber will tell you this is absolutely the wrong way to climb, but like most bad habits, it wasn’t an easy tendency to break. Not helping matters: I was able to get by climbing this way -- albeit slowly with increasingly sore forearms and shoulders -- for almost half the route. However, I soon reached the crux of my climb; the point where I couldn’t just rely on my hands and arms to pull me up. There were no good hand holds to be found and the only course of action was to trust my feet. I lifted my right leg and pressed my foot against a solid foot hold, but while trying to push myself up, my right leg started to wobble and my foot slipped off the hold, sending me falling into the safety -- and embarrassment -- of the rope. After collected my shattered ego, I eased back to the hold and tried again. No luck. I attempted to use my other foot and pushing up with my other leg. Still nothing. I even tried pulling myself up with the fingernail grips my hands had. Didn’t work, plus it added to the sore wrists I already had. Eventually, I found myself clutching the rock and contemplating an early conclusion to my climb. I had been stuck on that hold for what seemed like an eternity and all of the sudden I realized how high I was off the ground. My knees felt weak, my arms felt tired and I started to think maybe rock climbing wasn’t for me. I felt like I was wasting everyone else’s time being up on that route. However, another thought quickly swept over me: Maybe this was exactly what I was looking for with rock climbing. “This is why you’re here,” I told myself. “You wanted to do something different and you wanted to challenge yourself. So stop whining and get up this rock.” (Note: this is probably the edited version of my inner monologue at that point) My step brother and his friends echoed this sentiment from the ground.

“Keep it going man!” they yelled. “You’re almost there, you just gotta trust your feet!” I wasn’t wasting their time; they were excited to see a beginner give it a go. After taking a moment to catch my breath, I repositioned my hands and feet and calmly pushed myself upward with my right leg to the jug -- climbing term for a really big hand hold -- I’d been falling just short of. Only this time, I finally made it. Even better, I immediately pulled myself up from that hold and moved on to another. A short time later, I reached the top of the route, at which point I threw up my arms and let out a mighty “Drago!” yell -- “Rocky 4” reference, don’t judge. I was pretty proud of myself at that point. Sure, it

was a route my step brother could do in his sleep and it ended up being a lot harder than I thought it would, but I didn’t quit. I stuck with it and eventually managed to get through the climb, even if it looked a little clumsy. Above all else, that’s what I enjoyed most about rock climbing: The satisfaction of completing a route and the general acceptance I felt from everyone else in the group. I didn’t have the skill or general interest in the sport that Derek and his friends had, but that didn’t matter. Everyone was there to have a good time and encourage each other to get on the rock and give it a try. I call that a good new experience.

Arlo Cristofaro’s Great Glass Jar By RICH Larson editor@southernminnscene.com

H

old your memories close/ fold them with the wind/ it’s been seven years/ and still sometimes I forget/you don’t need to remind me/of all the things I’ve missed” So begins the opening track, Dear Sgt. Pepper, of Arlo Cristofaro’s debut album, The Great Glass Jar. These are words you expect to hear from a wizened troubadour like James Taylor or Jackson Browne; guys who’ve been around the block a couple thousand times. This is not what you expect from a kid who just graduated from high school in May. Arlo Cristofaro is a remarkable talent, however. Armed with nothing but a guitar and 18 years of life experience, he writes songs that are filled with both youthful exuberance and sentimental reflections on the lessons he has gleaned from his short time on Earth. While not an explicit concept album, The Great Glass Jar has a singular point of view. Cristofaro

seems to be speaking to his peers as an old soul, reminding them how important it is to grab life with both hands and approach things without fear. On Hey, Everybody Listen!, Mr. Cristofaro uses his own personal vision as a means to encourage and inspire the people around him. I found myself alive/as I sat on yonder hill/and listened to my thoughts/as they slowly found the sill/and damn I’ve got the will. His sense of societal responsibility is both surprising and refreshing. On The Sparrow & the Plough, a “grass is greener” tale, he ruminates on the idea that anything done long enough can become mundane, and the importance of accepting yourself as who you are. The strongest song on the album is Blend. Through a bouncing acoustic rhythm, he conveys the sense of wonder and excitement that’s felt when the future is wide open, while the lyrics remind the listener to never forget the experiences that brought them to this point. It’s an inspiring thing to hear

A d d y o u r e v e n t f o r F R E E t o t h e T I M E L I N E c a l e n d a r . G O TO w w w. s o u t h ernminn . c o mm / s c ene / c a len d a r & C l i c k + A d d a n E v ent

a young man so eager and excited, thankful for all that’s come before him, not afraid to make mistakes. Amazingly, Cristofaro finds a way to convey this feeling with charm, and not overly dramatic schmaltz. The charm of the lyrics on Glass Jar is matched by the remarkable musicianship. It’s not easy to carry an album almost solely on the back of an acoustic guitar, yet Cristofaro does it with ease. Augmented only by producer Jonathan Young’s percussion and the very occasional keyboard wash, Cristofaro is able to convey as much emotion through his guitar as his words. He is also blessed with a unique, expressive voice that recalls a deeper, but every bit as ethereal Jeff Buckley. Young is wise to leave the vocals up in most of the mixes, capturing Cristofaro’s detailed diction. Graduating from high school is a major rite of passage. For most of us, it’s the first time we get a taste of care free independence. Cristofaro is able to capture the exhilaration of freedom and opportunity that comes with being 18. More importantly, he has announced himself as someone who deserves our attention, and will for years to come. The Great Glass Jar is available at wwwhttp://audiblearlo.bandcamp. com/album/the-great-glass-jar. Cristofaro also wants you to know that he has a Facebok page worth investigating.

Years in the Making!

We Are Mike’s Garage!

I

never would have thought I would even say those words 6 years ago. Let me introduce myself. I’m Sarah, the wife of Mike Kawell, owner of Mike’s Garage. Our life over the past 6 years has been filled with tears, joy and excitement, like I’m sure your life has been as well. As you all know, with life, somethings are just meant to be and slowly fall into place, as if destiny has something to do with it. That is how our story starts. Mike and I were married in 2007 and started Mike’s Garage the same year we were married. Mike was working at Apple Valley Ford at the time and we both felt a calling on our lives to step out and do something different. We started in a small 2 bay shop we leased on 2nd Ave in Faribault. This shop was nothing special, by all means, but it provided a place where we could repair cars and trucks. Mike and I loved every minute of it in that stinky shop, where we got to work together and meet and develop close relationships with our customers. Serving together and seeing the need for “having a relationship with people” and striving everyday to be honest when it comes to their vehicles was a true joy to us. We can now look back and laugh at the times we had in that shop and the HOT or COLD upstairs waiting lounge for our customers, the door opening and the snow or rain rushing in while you were checking out a customer and my many plants that I had that died from the fumes. We believe that you should never be ashamed of where you came from because it got you to where you are today. As time passes on, our volume increased and we slowly outgrew our small shop and proceeded with plans to build our future location. We moved into our new shop in

44

November of 2011. Through all the transitions, we faced tears and trials, joys and excitements we now had two small children to add to our lives, as well, and as a mom it was a challenge. Mike proceeded forward with the diligence to make it succeed to the end of the building process, which was a beautiful day! After adding employees and all the equipment we needed, we are a fully functioning repair shop. After all this I can say dreams can come true. We have been there two years now, which is hard to believe. We still strive to provide the best customer service around, without the stinky waiting lounge this time. We have notably increased our size to accommodate the need of fixing it fast and right and hopefully get to build more relationships and develop more friendships along the way. Thank you for letting us into your lives and hearing our story. The world is a brighter place with love in it so spread it around!

BOOK REVIEW

‘Shot All to Hell’ puts you on the horse with Jesse By JERRY SMITH editor@southernminnscene.com

F Mark Lee Gardner

BUY THE BOOK Shot All to Hell: Jesse James, the Northfield Raid, and the Wild West’s Greatest Escape Mark Lee Gardner Publisher: William Morrow $27.99 352 pages ISBN: 978-0-06-198947-6

ew names pulled from the pages of American history books during the days of the Wild West are recognized by more people than Jesse James. The subject of numerous movies and hundreds of books – including the popular Western dime novels of the 19th century – the outlaw’s exploits made him feared in life and a legend in death. Northfielders found out firsthand how ruthless James and his band of thieves could be when he and seven other members of the James-Younger gang – astride fine horses and wearing white dusters that covered immense firepower – rode into town on Sept. 7, 1876, with the intention of robbing the First National Bank. Things didn’t go the way the gang had grown accustomed to while in Northfield, however. A defiant staff kept the robbers in the bank longer than intended and when word spread that the bank was being robbed, the townspeople fought back. What followed the famous call by prominent Northfield businessman J.S. Allen of “Get your guns boys,

they’re robbing the bank!” was bedlam, heroism and a Wild West shootout never before seen in these parts. The story of the infamous Northfield raid has been recounted time and time again in many publications – sometimes exaggerated to the point of being pure fiction and other times based in fact but laced with half-truths. But never has the story been told as thoroughly, accurately and with as much passion as in Mark Lee Gardner’s new book Shot All to Hell: Jesse James, the Northfield Raid, and the Wild West’s Greatest Escape. Gardner goes to great lengths to tell the reader who the players were in one of the West’s most famous stories and how they attained the reputation of being the most feared and sought-after gang in U.S. history. They were all young men. Not one of them was older than thirty-five, and half of them were still single. People thought of them as courteous and good-natured, even jolly. And their Missouri drawls added to their charm. ... But it stuck out, especially to folks from the North.

Nobody had the slightest inkling these affable men were stone-cold killers. Yet the men of the James-Younger gang were hardened to violence and bloodshed. Many of them had been baptized by fire as guerilla fighters (better known as “bushwhackers”) in the most savage theater of the Civil War. These outlaws wouldn’t hesitate to pull a trigger and snuff out a man’s life. – Page 25 Gardner not only tells the story of the raid itself in more detail than most scholarly accounts of the historic event and also helps the reader get into the minds of the JamesYounger gang and why they were the way they were, he painstakingly details their movements before and after the raid. In one passage detailing their plight, Gardner even talks about the role Minnesota’s weather played in the capture of this feared band of brothers. Minnesota had become their living hell. The rain and cold continue to sap their strength, making their situation nearly unbearable. “The oldest inhabitant has no recollection of such

I

n Victorian times dinner parties were a very important duty of wives in the upper class. As hostesses, they were solely in charge of planning and overseeing everything—from the guest list and seating chart to the decorations to every last dish served. Dinner parties were held primarily to establish and maintain social connections and there was no “duty”

Follow us

more important in Society. The hostess of a party had her ‘guest list’ of people she considered worthy of an invitation: old friends and new friends, people she wished to cultivate for their distinction or wealth, or for the use they might be to her husband. Every detail was an opportunity for disaster! If the party went well the story spread. If it didn’t, the story spread even faster! Now that’s pressure! Although the dinner party today is much more casual and does not hold the “social’ weight that it did in the past, it can still cause the most calm and relaxed people to ‘freak out’! DON’T BE AFRAID!! Don’t let a fear of proper etiquette or the fear of too much work stop you from hosting a party. Your main job is to make everyone feel comfortable. There are many ways to lessen the stress! First, make lists. The more organized you can be the calmer you will be on that dreaded night. There is nothing more ‘zen-like’ than a list with all the tasks crossed off! And start your list early! If you don’t use your dining room table on a daily basis set the table a week ahead – everything but fresh flowers! Second, gather as many tips as you can to make the evening special. Things that you can do ahead of time are important. Have the table attractively set, and make sure your centerpiece is low enough to not interrupt conversation. It’s a nice touch to put one or two fresh blooms in a small vase in your guest bathroom when you are entertaining and you can do that the day before. It tells your guests you are happy they are there. All of the senses need to be satisfied all at once; let the guest see flowers in the hall, smell the wonderful food, hear music through the air, feel the vibes that have been set, and taste the liquid refreshment that is instantly of-

fered. Have each of your guests bring some of their favorite music! Your favorite music brings memories, makes you feel at home, invites stories about where you were when you last heard that song. Third, give special thought to the guest list. Creating an atmosphere of warmth, ease and charm is the key to successful entertaining. Dinner parties are meant to be intimate, so don’t host more than six to eight people; everyone should sit together at one table. Only ask people you really like to spend time with – no ulterior motives or entertaining debt paying. And certainly ‘no bores allowed’! Mix up the personality types, ages, professions – new friends and good old pals – to make interesting, varied and eclectic conversations. At the end of the evening, when your guests are planning the next get-together you’ll know your party was a hit! Fourth, you can delegate many tasks. All except one. Yes, you will be readying the house and making your special dishes when you entertain but the first impression will set the tone for the rest of the party. So it’s important that it is the Host that graciously welcomes guests at the door and gets the introductions going. But integrate your guests by welcoming them into the kitchen to assist with final touches, open some wine or change the music. Just make sure you don’t relax so much as to ask them to answer the door. That’s the Host’s job! The ultimate way to “delegate” is to suggest to friends a ‘themed progressive dinner’! This really spreads the tasks around – from ‘house to house’! Have appetizers at one house, the entrée at another, and dessert and after-dinner drinks at a third! Making a progressive din-

ner night of it not only spreads the tasks around but also the fun of it!! Other themes can be a ‘Murder Mystery’ dinner. Your guests are first assigned identities, and then become suspects in the crime. During the meal, clues are handed out, and guests quiz each other to determine who the fictitious killer is. To keep things as simple as possible it’s best to purchase a murder mystery party game to help guide the action. Throw a party to watch vintage Italian movies with Italian classics on the menu. Warm soup, bread, pasta with fresh basil tomato sauce and gelato are the perfect match for The Godfather or La Dolce Vita with good friends. Everyone has a favorite movie, book or play. It certainly helps if your favorite has a strong food component, such as “Eat Pray Love,” a movie which initially centers around pasta, or “Chocolat,” a story about a female chocolatier. What do you think of when you hear about the Victorian Era, the Renaissance or the Roman Empire? What about the Prohibition Era or Flower Power? Translate that into a dinner party idea. A 1960s Flower Power party can mean tie-dyed placemats, beads in the doorway and endless music choices (did I hear Woodstock?). Themes can be as varied as your imagination, but one great way to come up with not only a theme but an entire fun evening is to theme it around a night at the theater! There are Community theaters throughout Southern Minnesota: Albert Lea, Faribault, Hastings, Lakeville, Montgomery, and Northfield to name only a few! Check out what might be happening at the Paradise Center for the Arts! September 28th brings the magic of the Beatles throughout

the British invasion; talk about the psychedelic/flower power era! Make it progressive before and after the show. If you tie in the food from that era, you’re probably talking simple comfort foods like meatloaf and mashed potatoes, with whipped creamtopped gelatin for dessert; I might abstain from the ‘brownies’. Assign each of your guests a ‘hippie name’ like Rainbow, Fawn the Flower Child, Star, Moon, Dharma etc. It doesn’t hurt to dress the part either; bell bottom jeans and a fringe vest

would be right on, man.” Sitting on the floor is a must and the more candles the better. No matter how you choose to have a dinner party, don’t NOT have one for fear of ‘messing up’! DON’T BE AFRAID! It’s just a party; loosen up and have fun! – Jill Mackey is a Faribault foodie. Got a question bout food or drinks for Jill? Email editor@ southernminnscene.com

Scorpio

Virgo

(Oct 24-Nov 21)

(Aug 23-Sept 22) Scary movie: The Silence of the Lambs Buffalo Bill is much like a Virgo: a loner, driven, and a bit particular when it comes to getting things done (“It puts the lotion on it’s skin!”). Coupled with the perfectly sinister and immaculately articulate Hannibal Lecter, The Silence of the Lambs will be sure to leave even the most tightly-wound Virgo a tad undone.

Scary movie: Rosemary’s Baby Nobody plays the game of love quite like a Scorpio. Known for their passion, jealous, and zero-tolerance for betrayal, Scorpios should adore Mia Farrow as Rosemary. Short story: stupid husband, cult-y neighbors, one-night stand with Satan, demon spawn pregnancy. Mia Farrow’s portrayal as a frail and broken wife/mother/woman wasn’t just great acting- hubby Frank Sinatra sent her divorce papers while she was on set.

Libra

Sagittarius

(Sept 23-Oct 23)

(Nov 22-Dec 21)

Scary movie: IT Libras are always on a mission to turn a frown upside-down. The world is ready

adore companionship….maybe that’s what makes them such great animal lovers? Get your P.E.T.A. pals together and pop in a copy of An American Werewolf in London. Once it’s over, you can discuss the ethical treatment of werewolves and their place in society.

Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) Scary movie: Last House on the Left Capricorns are renowned for their calm demeanor and chameleon-like abilities to blend comfortably into a situation. Similar skills are necessary in order to keep your cool after discovering that your houseguests just tried to kill your daughter.

Aquarius

(Jan 20-Feb 18) Scary movie: An American Werewolf Scary movie: Carrie in London Sagittarius are nurturing, protective, and Aquarius’ willingness to experiment

with new ideas often leads to them putting themselves “out there”. They want to find a friend in everyone. They want people to like them. Sometimes, though, the world (particularly the high school girl world) just doesn’t share that same innocent ambition of camaraderie. Sometimes the world spills pig blood on you. And sometimes, that willingness to experiment with new ideas like telekinesis means you can exact revenge on those punks.

Pisces (Feb 19-March 20) Scary movie: Seven Right and wrong, good and evil, chocolate or vanilla….Pisces tend to weigh their options and respond rationally. Seven has a fabulous example of this kind of logic: if somebody presents you with a box what would you do? Probably ask what’s in the box, and/or open the box. …don’t open the box.

Aries

Gemini

(March 21-April 19)

(May 21-June 21)

Scary movie: The Omen Could there be a movie more fitting for an Aries- the bold-blooded ‘baby of the Zodiac’- than The Omen? Indeed, it takes a lot of confidence in ones’ self to be a 5 year-old Antichrist.

Scary movie: The Shining It’s said that when a Gemini gets bored, they seek out excitement. What do you think a Gemini would do if they were stuck on a family vacation at a snowedin old resort? Maybe go for a bike ride? Meet some new friends and play with them forever? Grab the axe and decide to do a little bathroom remodel? All good options, Timmy.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Scary movie: 28 Days Later A Taurus will charge head-on into whatever situation you throw at them. Recovering from brain surgery, escaping London, rescuing your friends from a psychotic military group and doing it all while dodging hordes of bloodthirsty ‘Rage’ zombies? Piece of cake for a Taurus.

in somebody else’s body in order to continue on a terrifying carnage…..but you can draw the parallels.

Leo (July 23-Aug 22)

(June 22-July 22)

Scary movie: The Devil’s Rejects Leos are strange creatures….they tend to naturally take charge of a situation when the opportunity arises, but will quickly respect and follow a leader when presented with one. Does anybody else truly capture that independent/ dependent relationship quite like the patriarch-loving family in The Devil’s Rejects?

Scary movie: The Thing Cancers might just see a little bit of themselves in The Thing. Never one to wear their emotions out in the open, Cancers find it much more comfortable to put on a mask. How is The Thing really that different? Granted, we’re talking about masquerading around
