Stage Fright, Pt. 3

haircutting for guys


Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so far while I have been embedded in the Town & Gown production of August: Osage County (sonamed because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situated in Osage County, Oklahoma). The Taco Stand or some other takeout joint should underwrite the theater. Actors basically have to eat between work and rehearsal. Even then, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re generally eating with one hand and holding their script with the other, or a power drill, or a steering wheel. Directing a play is impossible, at least at this level. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to design the set and then build it, and if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to run a table saw, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better know somebody who does, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better cast actors who can carry a sofa down a ladder from the loft. Then you have to go contend with loud wedding bands across the way at the Taylor-Grady House booming the sounds of Motown into the quiet climax of your production. Acting is the ability to appear not to be acting. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that until you learn your lines so well that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have to think about them. Even then, you forget them. Sometimes you leave out big chunks of your lines. Acting is the ability to appear not to be winging it and at best not to have to wing it.

(l-r) Johnna (Asia Meana) listens to Barbara (Bryn Adamson). The theater is like an iceberg; 90 percent of it goes on behind the scenes. There is a lot of waiting around. People sit chatting, reading or checking their lines, then walk out on stage and turn into saints or serial killers. Each performance is different; each audience is different. The audience is a big part of the performance: some are live, some not. A live audience enhances the performance. Actors are just like you and me. You could be living next door to one and not know it. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not just play-acting; they morph. I have watched them up close, and I still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how they do it, but it has a lot to do with practice, like baseball. You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to just walk out on the field and turn a double-play. There are people whose titles seem insignificant without whom there would be no play: the guy running the lights and the sound and the stage manager, who runs the show from behind the curtain. The stage manager is constantly on the go, keeping up with every actor and every prop and assuring that they go on at the right time together. Together, these actors make up one of the finest ensemble casts ever assembled in Athens. Allen Rowell, himself a fine actor, directs August, assisted by Carina McGeehin and Adam Shirley. Bryn Adamson and Gay Griggs McCommons, giving the performances of their lives, are surrounded by the experience and expertise of Mitch Maxey, Emily Myers, Derek Adams, Skip Hulett, Kelly Doyle-Mace, Patrick Hooper, Heather Reed, Asia Meana, Rex Totty, Isabella Germain (a 14-year-old pro) and me. Ashley Laramore designed the lights, and Steve Wildey designed the music. Jameson Totty runs both. Heather Sitler is the legendary stage manager. A lot of other people have helped put this production together, building and painting the set, working on everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hair (Holly Richards), etc. The London Telegraph reviewer called August: Osage County â&#x20AC;&#x153;the first great American play of this century.â&#x20AC;?

city dope Paying for Our Dream Downtown Senate Bill 101 died the last day of the 2013 legislative session March 28 due to a disagreement between the House and Senate. But the gun lobby is expected to—yes, the puns are coming faster than a speeding bullet—reload next year.

JAck Crowley

Mark Your Calendars: Want to shape the future of downtown Athens? A second public hearing on the downtown master plan is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Apr. 25 in the Classic Center’s Grand Hall. UGA College of Environment and Design professor Jack Crowley and his team of graduate students will present visual concepts that attendees will rate from one to 10. In addition, Crowley is looking for ways to pay for projects proposed in the plan, such as a median on Oconee Street, repairing or rebuilding neglected trestles (including the neglected Murmur trestle) along the future Georgia Railroad rail-trail and a linear park on city-owned land alongside Jackson Street between Hancock Avenue and the Lyndon House. “One of the big things we hear is pedestrian, bicycle access to downtown,” he said. One idea is a tax allocation district. A TAD would devote additional property taxes collected on new developments in the eastern part of downtown to infrastructure improvements within the district. Crowley noted that $150 million worth of new development is already planned or underway between Thomas Street and the North Oconee River, including a new Hyatt hotel, three apartment complexes and the Selig mixeduse project. If the Athens-Clarke Commission acts by the end of the year, it could include revenue from those developments in the TAD, along with likely future developments Crowley anticipates near the Multimodal Center, on Dougherty Street where Good Dirt is now and at the auto repair shop on East Broad Street. “This is a way to do a lot of the infrastructure that needs to be done to continue to attract private development,” he said. Crowley suggested last week that the Athens Downtown Development Authority propose a TAD to the Athens-Clarke Commission. Board members said they would consider it next month. The Clarke County Board of Education would have to approve it as well. The TAD would allow ACC to borrow $20 million for infrastructure improvements, then pay back the bonds in 13–17 years with revenue from new development without raising taxes. But the additional revenue would not be available for other government services like education. Campus Carry: Three ACC commissioners told state lawmakers last week to put the safety back on a bill that would allow carry permit holders to wield guns on the University of Georgia campus.



“It doesn’t look like it’s going away,” said Sen. Frank Ginn (R-Danielsville). Commissioner Jerry NeSmith said that pursuing the gun issue is a waste of time and a distraction. Commissioner Andy Herod, as usual, was blunter: “I think it’s about the worst idea anybody’s come up with in a long time,” he said.

Herod, a UGA geography professor, said the bill does nothing to make campus safer and will chill classroom discussion because students will fear angering classmates who might be packing. “As a school administrator, I don’t even want to be enabled to carry a gun on campus,” said Commissioner Kelly Girtz, the principal at Classic City High School. Ginn sponsored the original version of SB 101, before the House amended it, and said he was only interested in allowing South Carolina permit holders to carry guns in Georgia and vice versa. “The campus stuff, that’s outside any interest I had in it,” he said. Redistricting: Remember those new ACC commission districts that most of us didn’t want but were foisted upon us by certain members of our legislative delegation? Well, we fired those guys at the polls last year, but it looks like we’re stuck with the new lines, anyway. Superdistricts aren’t coming back. “I would just say there was definitely a lack of unanimity within the delegation to pursue that this session,” said Rep. Chuck Williams (R-Watkinsville). Unnamed legislator(s) continued to have concerns about whether the old commission districts diluted the minority vote, Williams said. (Spoiler alert: They didn’t.) “I don’t think those issues have gone away, even though the delegation has changed,” he said. The delegation’s internal rules require all five members to agree before local legislation moves forward. So who’s the holdout? What happens in delegation meetings stays in delegation meetings, but my guess is Sen. Bill Cowsert (R-Athens). Our representatives also failed to get elections for local nonpartisan offices moved back to November. The legislature shifted them to July in 2011, and turnout in last year’s commission races was abysmal. Williams said lawmakers from other cities with unified governments promised to fight him “tooth and nail” on moving election dates back to November. He wouldn’t specify why, but most likely the issue got tied up in the racial and partisan politics of Augusta and Macon. Economic Development: ACC Manager Alan Reddish recently hired Effingham County Industrial Development Authority project manager Ryan Moore to head the government’s new Department of Economic Development, which replaces the independent but publicly-funded Economic Development Foundation. So much for the EDF’s claims that no economic development professional would come work for a local government on a government salary ($80,000-$100,000 a year). Now that we’ve got our factory recruiter in place, let’s see if elected officials will shift their focus to sectors like small business and the arts, or if they were just paying lip service.

capitol impact Georgiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senators were caught in a political crossfire last week because of their vote on a gun control bill in the U.S. Senate. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson were not voting for passage of the bill, which would expand the system of background checks to try to keep firearms away from convicted felons and the mentally deranged. They were merely taking a procedural vote to allow senators to talk about the gun control bill during floor debate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it deserves a vote up or down,â&#x20AC;? Isakson said in a TV interview. Because they voted for the piddling step of allowing debate on the bill, Chambliss and Isakson set off a firestorm of outrage among conservative Republicans who felt they had been betrayed by the senators. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the milder comments from a conservative website: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since the Democrats have a clear majority, senators like Johnny Isakson should just stay home... If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not up to the task, then go back to Georgia and run for your county school board.â&#x20AC;? That anger among the Republican base wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother Chambliss, because he announced a while back he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t running for reelection. It could cause some grief for Isakson, however, if he decides to run for another term in 2016. Isaksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stand is an interesting one in a state where even talking about gun control will earn you not only criticism but threats on your life. It was just a year ago that state Rep. Ann Purcell (R-Rincon), as the chair of a legislative committee, would not let out of committee a bill allowing people to carry guns in public without having to obtain a permit. She received death threats from gun carry activists that were so severe the GBI was called in to investigate. Purcell also decided against running for another term in the Georgia House. I wondered if Isaksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to allow debate on the current gun bill was an early

sign that he had decided not to run again in 2016. One of his top supporters quickly told me that was not the case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Johnny has made it clear he intends to run in 2016,â&#x20AC;? said the Isakson supporter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m currently organizing a fundraiser for his 2016 campaign that will take place later this month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This far in advance of the 2016 primary and general election, I doubt seriously if his actions or his vote will make much difference when he stands for re-election. And, frankly, that may be a shame, because he is right.â&#x20AC;? Isakson is a savvy politician who knows when the electoral landscape is shifting. More and more of his Republican supporters live in suburban areas where parents worry about the dangers of random gun violence toward their kids. Fewer and fewer voters live in rural areas where guns and hunting are an ingrained part of the culture. Gov. Nathan Deal could face a choice similar to Isaksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next year. The General Assembly considered but ultimately did not pass a bill in the recent session that would have opened up college campuses and K-12 schools to guns and would have made it easier for mentally ill persons to obtain firearms permits. Gun carry advocates will be back lobbying for that billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passage next year, and I strongly suspect it will pass. Deal, by then, will be in the middle of a vigorous reelection campaign. The governor will have to decide whether he wants to sign a bill that could bring on gun violence among school kids and college students, or whether he can survive the political damage that would result if he vetoes it. Isakson decided to stand up to that faction within his party. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see what the governor will do. Tom Crawford

and does not relate well to its context,â&#x20AC;? according to a 2003 University of Cincinnati study that envisions an urban store design that encourages wandering and makes more efficient use of space. Dwyer says he was influenced by grocery stores near Emory University and in Midtown Atlanta and Miami, as well as the old department stores in the Michaels Building on East Clayton Street. His design includes mezzanines inside retail boxes to maximize floor space and deal with the SunTrust siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sloping topography. The development will include structured parking, and shoppers could also park in the West Washington Street deck across the street. Corporate executives, though, have questioned whether Athenians are ready to roll a shopping cart across the street and up an elevator to get back to their cars, Dwyer says. Like Chitty, Dwyer says he has approached every traditional grocery store chain in the Athens area, and they all passed. A locally-owned independent store isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to be able to pay high downtown rents on the sectorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slim margins. But smaller chains that specialize in urban stores (EarthFare, as a hypothetical example) are still in play, he says. The nonprofit Urban Land Institute predicted â&#x20AC;&#x153;a revolution in store design, location in mixed-use projects, parking solutions and roles within neighborhoodsâ&#x20AC;? in 2011, citing several dense, walkable projects in Washington, DC, and Portland, OR. Such developments include less parking, usually above or below the store or surrounded by shops. But urban grocery stores havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worked in every city. In Tampa Bay, FL, where Mayor Bob Buckhorn has pronounced a downtown supermarket one of his top priorities, the dominant chain in the region, Publix, recently pulled out of an urban redevelopment project, according to the Tampa Bay Times. At the same time, in nearby St. Petersburg, another chain, Sweetbayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, closed a store in an urban community, the newspaper reported. In spite of the difficulties, Dwyer says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more determined than ever to bring a grocery store downtown after the legislature passed the beer-and-wine bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was up in Atlanta a couple of times while they were working on this, and I can tell you it was a Herculean effort on the part of the people representing us,â&#x20AC;? Mayor Nancy Denson says. Blake Aued

movie dope Some releases may not be showing locally this week. • indicates new review • 42 (PG-13) Sports biopics are largely interchangeable. Still, something about the challenges faced by Jackie Robinson (gracefully inhabited by unknown Chadwick Boseman) as he broke the color barrier in professional baseball feels so much more singular than your average true tale of successfully bucking the odds. Boseman’s performance is not a skilled mimicry like so many other portrayals of famous persons; he imbues Robinson with such strength of character and composure. Equally important to this tale is Dodgers exec Branch Rickey, so gruffly played by Harrison Ford, who may finally be making the transition into grand old actor. Writer-director Brian Helgeland does nothing unique as he recounts this cinematic biography, but his film reads quickly, entertainingly and informatively. ASK TESADUFLERI SEVER A Turkish film with the English title Love Likes Coincidences follows two young lovers who continue to come across each other but can never be together. (UGA MLC) THE CALL (R) Until a final act that is so predictably out of character for Halle Berry’s heroine, The Call knows exactly what it is; a pulpy genre thriller; and excels at its sole task of generating as much entertainment as possible via suspense. THE CROODS (PG) The Croods stands out as one of the best non-Pixar animated family films released in the last few years. A family of cavemen— dad Grug (v. Nicolas Cage), mom Ugga (v. Catherine Keener), teen daughter Eep (v. Emma Stone), dumb son Thunk (v. Clarke Duke), feral baby Sandy and grandma (v. Cloris Leachman)—are forced on a cross-country road trip after their cave is destroyed by the impending “end of the world.” DJANGO UNCHAINED (R) Slave Django (Jamie Foxx) is freed by dentist-turned-bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz, the single greatest gift Quentin Tarantino has given American movie audiences). Together the duo hunts bad guys and seeks Django’s wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), who belongs to plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Django Unchained is an ultraviolent blast. EVEN THE RAIN (NR) 2010. Icíar Bollaín directs this Spanish film based on a true story about a film crew that spurred protests in Cochabamba,

Bolivia in 2000 over privatization of the water works. With Gael Garcia Bernal. (Ciné) EVIL DEAD (R) 2013’s Evil Dead, a remake of Sam Raimi’s cult classic, puts five new young people through the horrific, maddening, limb-threatening paces. When will young people learn not to read from a book bound in human skin? What Evil Dead gets right is the massive amounts of blood poured upon its actors. Director Fede Alvarez also shows (borrows) the stylistic imagination of a young Raimi. Still, the importance of Bruce Campbell’s Ash was underestimated. FRENZY (R) 1972. Screening as part of Ciné’s 6th Anniversary Celebration, Frenzy is Alfred Hitchcock’s penultimate film. A serial killer, whose M.O. is strangling young women with a necktie, is on the loose in London. Too bad the police have the wrong man. That description makes this Hitch flick sound very Giallo-like. Richard Allen, the chair of the Department of Cinema Studies at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts and a Hitchcock scholar, will be discussing the film at the Monday, Apr. 22 screening. (Ciné) G.I. JOE: RETALIATION (PG-13) G.I. Joe: Retaliation is everything that G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was not. Mostly ignoring Stephen Sommers’ 2009 misfire, this franchise reboot introduces three new lead Joes: Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Lady Jaye (Adrianne Palicki) and my childhood favorite, Flint (D.J. Cotrona). Featured Cobra players plot to break Cobra Commander from a super-secret prison. But the plot is inconsequential. G.I. Joe blows stuff up real good. A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD (R) Do audiences find Bruce Willis’ New York Detective John McClane running into trouble for a fifth time, in Russia, with his CIA operative son (Jack Reacher’s Jai Courtney), believable? Respectable but unexciting action director John Moore (Behind Enemy Lines, Flight of the Phoenix) should be better than Live and Let Die Hard’s Len Wiseman. HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS (R) Wondering how Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters made it to theaters is a far more interesting way to spend the action fairy tale’s sub-90 -minute runtime. The fabled origin of Hansel and Gretel is well-known. Dead Snow’s Tommy Wirkola imagines what happens next, as Hansel and Gretel (Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton)

grow up to be traveling hunters of deadly witches. THE HOST (PG-13) What Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels did to horror, she does to science fiction in The Host. Alien invaders have conquered Earth. Most of humanity has had their bodies taken over by an extraterrestrial tenant.When the invaders implant a soul named Wanderer into the body of Melanie Styder (Saoirse Ronan), Melanie fights back, eventually convincing/leading Wanderer to Melanie’s human family and friends. Once there, Wanda, as the humans call her, falls for one boy, while Melanie continues to love Jared (Max Irons). You knew Meyer would work her love triangle (or in this case, love rectangle?) into the plot somewhere. IN THE HOUSE (R) Francois Ozon riveted audiences with Swimming Pool; now he peels back the curtain to reveal what goes on inside the home of a perfect family. A teacher (Fabrice Luchini) takes an interest in a bright young

Zombie movie block, which appeals to me and my ilk. Could it find moderate success at a post-Evil Dead box office? LOW BLOW (R) 1986. Joe Wong (Leo Fong) is a private investigator hired by a rich dude to save his daughter from the cult, led by blind, wheelchair bound Yarakunda (Cameron Mitchell, best remembered for the TV series “The High Chaparral”), who has brainwashed her. Teenage heartthrob Troy Donahue appears, but nobody cares. The old VHS box sports the great tagline, “The Deadliest Weapon Is Still Your Fist.” Director Frank Harris has a filmography that would not recommend his hiring. Part of Ciné’s Bad Movie Night. (Ciné) MAMA (PG-13) Two young girls are found in a cabin, where they have lived alone for five years. Unfortunately, when Annabel and Lucas (Jessica Chastain and Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) get Victoria and Lily home, they discover the two girls were not alone in the woods, and they’ve brought their

You run over there and I’ll wave to you. writing student. That student turns a little too Tom Ripley, as he insinuates himself into the life of a fellow student and writes about what he discovers. The trailer offers a very intriguing film. With Kristen Scott Thomas and Emmanuelle Seigner. JURASSIC PARK 3D (PG-13) Some movies are made to be watched dozens upon hundreds of times at home on TV; Jurassic Park is not one of those movies. It deserves, nay, requires being seen on a big screen, accompanied by booming theatrical sound. One thing JP does not require is 3D; a 2D theatrical screening of Steven Spielberg’s last classic blockbuster will suffice. This 20-year-old, effects-laden, dino-disaster pic, based on Michael Crichton’s giddy sci-fi adventure, has aged much better than your last home viewing experience has you remembering it. LIFE OF PI (PG) The imaginatively conceived and beautifully told work of art created by Brokeback Mountain Oscar winner Lee, who certainly deserved the award he received this year for Best Director, reminded me of the many, small joys that add up to make the life of Pi. One of the year’s most moving, most artistic films of the year. THE LORDS OF SALEM (R) Rocker turned filmmaker Rob Zombie returns with his sixth feature film. Judging from the trailers, Zombie’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie, stars as a young woman being sought by the titular lords to give birth to Satan on Earth. At least that’s what it looks like. No matter the plot, Lords appears to be a chip off the

rather angry “Mama” with them. The buildup is slow and foreboding, but the final act asks far too much of its CGI creature, whose overly digital appearance elicits more giggles than screams. NO (R) Pablo Larrain’s fourth feature is one of the Academy Award nominees for Best Foreign Language Film. In 1988 Chile, ad exec Rene Saavedra (Y Tu Mama Tambien’s Gael Garcia Bernal; think Don Draper en Español) plots to defeat Augusto Pinochet. Larrain’s previous features Fuga, Tony Manero and Post Mortem have yet to break through in the United States; this Oscar nominee could be it. Featuring Jane Fonda, Richard Dreyfuss, Christopher Reeve and Augusto Pinochet as themselves. (Ciné) m OBLIVION (PG-13) Tom Cruise’s latest movie is a pre-summer, sci-fi, potential blockbuster. After an alien invasion devastated the Earth, few people remain to mine the last planet’s remaining resources. One of the last people on the planet, Jack Harper (Cruise), discovers everything might not be as it seems after finding a 22-year-old woman and a 102-year-old insurgency leader, Malcolm Beech (Morgan Freeman). Tron: Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski directs this sci-fi actioner that kind of reminds me of the popular videogame, Mass Effect. OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN (R) Olympus Has Fallen feels like a relic from the bygone era of the 1980s, where audiences were satisfied by old-fashioned, bloody, action movies wherein stone-faced heroes faced off against despicable bad guys without

obfuscating their violent exploits with frenetic camerawork. Too bad director Antoine Fuqua’s latest flick isn’t the new Die Hard, as this Gerard Butlersaves-the-president actioner easily bests John McClane’s latest misfire. OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL (PG) First and foremost, Sam Raimi’s The Wizard of Oz prequel is no Wizard; it’s not even Return to Oz, the very dark, very underrated 1985 sequel. Carnival magician and con man Oscar Diggs (James Franco, whose performance is nothing if not inconsistent) meets three witches—Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams)—who believe him to be the great wizard whose appearance in Oz was prophesied. In the void left by the recently deceased king, Oscar must determine which witches are wicked and which are good. • THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES (R) The Place Beyond the Pines is an easy film to laud, an easier film to critique, but a tough film to recommend. At two hours and twenty minutes, writer-director Derek Cianfrance’s follow-up to Blue Valentine is constructed like three short stories, all connected by one major event. In the first story, Ryan Gosling stars as Luke Glanton, a stunt bike rider who turns to bank robbery to take care of his young son and baby mama (Eva Mendes). The second story stars Bradley Cooper as Avery Cross, a rookie police officer turned hero turned whistleblower. The final arc connects the two men via their similarly aged sons in ways much less profound than the somber film or its imperious running time imply. An ambitious character study of fathers and sons, The Place Beyond the Pines isn’t an easy watch, but is ultimately more rewarding than arduous. QUARTET (PG-13) In his directorial debut, Dustin Hoffman fashions a delightful trifle filled with deliciously British performances. At Beecham House, a home for retired musicians, plans are afoot for a gala to celebrate Verdi’s birthday. Drama arrives in the form of an aging diva, Jean Horton, who is also the ex-wife of another resident (Tom Courtenay). Maggie Smith is her usually grand self (and as her actual age, not older, for once!). Renowned scene stealer Billy Connolly is up to his old tricks as aged horndog Wilf. Anyone who enjoyed their stay at The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel should also enjoy Quartet. (Ciné) RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: THE ADAPTATION (NR) 1989. After watching Steven Spielberg’s classic film, three teenage boys decided to stage their own shot-for-shot reenactment. The boys from Mississippi spent the next seven years doing just that; they also created a cult phenomenon in the process. The sweet ode to cinema is screening on Thursday, Apr. 18 at the UGA Tate Center and on Saturday, Apr. 20 at Ciné, as part of Ciné’s 6th Anniversary Celebration. The Adaptation’s own Indiana Jones, Chris Strompolos, will be in attendance for both screenings. (Ciné, UGA Tate Theatre) • SCARY MOVIE V (PG-13) So Scary Movie is back. What do you really need to know? A Paranormal Activity/ Mama mashup provides the frame that is rattily covered by an hour and thirty minutes of puerile, scattershot jokes. A Black Swan B-plot? Real timely. The

Scary Movies simply tosses pop culture references and cameos by celebrities who have passed their sell-by date with no real interest in spoofing the genre they allegedly came to spoof; if Mike Tyson meets Fifty Shades of Grey jokes make you giggle, be my guest. The absolutely frightening aspect of this movie is the thought that enough people might venture to see it to warrant a sixth entry. SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK (R) 2012. After being released from a state mental hospital, Pat (Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper) meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), who lost it after the death of her husband. Instead of exacerbating each other’s unhealthy flaws, the relationship between these two cracked souls heals both, much to the surprise of everyone, including Pat’s parents (Robert De Niro and Animal Kingdom’s Jacki Weaver). Silver Linings Playbook has an awkward edge that makes even the smallest successes so much sweeter. David O. Russell’s fiery demeanor and beautiful writing certainly ignites his actors; Cooper and Lawrence give two of the year’s most generous and honest performances. (Ciné, UGA Tate Theatre) • TRANCE (R) Do not think too hard about Trance’s mesmerizing complex plot once it’s over, or else risk smashing the exquisitely designed psycho-thriller. Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) reunites with his Shallow Grave and Trainspotting writer, John Hodge, but either Hodge wrote too smartly for the film’s own good or Boyle couldn’t care less about whether or not his films make sense (a fair critique of many of his films). Here, the third act is thrilling, but good luck unraveling it without unknitting the entire narrative carpet. What starts as an art heist flick, starring James McAvoy as an art auctioneer and Vincent Cassel as a criminal, ends as a head trip about hypnosis, memory, domestic violence, pubic hair in classical art (don’t ask unless you really want the answer) and more. Boyle gets every last stylish drop out of this film. The set designs (see Cassel’s apartment), lighting and wickedly danceable soundtrack mask any narrative flaws. Trance is hypnotically watchable; just don’t try and recall too much of it once you’ve been awakened. TYLER PERRY’S TEMPTATION (PG-13) Is it possible for a filmmaker to “jump the shark?” He cast Kim Kardashian, for goodness’ sake. And wait for Brandy’s climactic reveal. It’s the sort of melodramatic gem that could turn this dreck into popular camp were it less dull. A marriage counselor (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), who feels neglected by her nice guy, pharmacist husband (Lance Gross), waltzes off with a handsome, ripped billionaire (Robbie Jones), after he offers her the good life of shopping, drugs, sex, etc. By the time Judith’s religious mother (Ella Joyce) wanders in to preach at her daughter, it’s too late. WARM BODIES (PG-13) Warm Bodies is not your usual end of the world via the flesh-eating living dead flick. Blessed (or cursed) with a rather rich inner life, R (Nicholas Hoult) still munches brains but he’s conflicted about it, especially after meeting Julie (Teresa Palmer). She kickstarts his heart, starting a chain reaction amongst all the corpses. WRECK-IT RALPH (PG) Wreck-It Ralph (v. John C. Reilly), the bad guy from popular arcade game Fix-It Felix Jr., decides he wants to be a good guy. Leaving the safety of his own regenerating world, Ralph enters a Halo-ish first-person shooter named Hero’s Duty in search of a medal. Too bad Ralph is better at wrecking things than fixing them. Drew Wheeler

movie pick Old School Charm QUARTET (PG-13) Dustin Hoffman makes his official directorial debut (he was the original director of the underrated, gritty and brilliant 1978 crime movie Straight Time) with this emotionally rote, earnest yet engaging movie about a group of elderly opera singers living in the fading glow of their earlier artistic glories at a home for retired musicians. A few of the residents of Beecham Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the lecherous though irresistibly enchanting Wilf (Billy Connolly), the bubbly yet spacey Cissy (Pauline Collins), the commanding diva Jean (Maggie Smith) and her forlorn exhusband Reginald (Tom Courtney)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;are asked to perform for a charity fundraising event. Years ago, the four singers previously performed Rigoletto together, but now the reunion feels Pauline Collins and the strain because of oversized egos, bruised feelings and melancholic memories. Although the tone of Quartet slips into the gentle melancholic at times, there is a continuous buzz of joy throughout it. The movie generates some feeble suspense about Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insistence not to be involved with the reunion, but, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that the situation will conveniently resolve itself, there is enough warmth from the actors to keep this cinematic trifle amusing. It helps that Smith

is a casually brilliant performer, easily generating a few scene-stealing moments out of such otherwise forgettable material. The other performers are no slouches in that department either. Connolly, Collins, Courtney and Michael Gambon, playing the jaundiced fuddy-duddy director Cedric, all craft their own special moments, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their appeal married with a breezy professionalism that keeps Quartet more entertaining than the material warrants. Screenwriter Ronald Harwood (the movie is based on his play) has focused on backstage drama before, namely with The Dresser and Being Julia. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all rather manipulative and self-congratulating in the manner that most middle-of-theroad prestige ventures like this are guilty of Maggie Smith being. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to be too harsh when considering that quieter craftsmanship such as Quartet is frequently shunted aside in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movie marketplace, where brawny, obnoxiously frenetic live-action cartoons dominate. Quartet never really earns its on-screen encore, and it sure could use a jolt of adrenaline to boost its energy level, but it has something unique other movies in release donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have: old school charm.

Big Boi: the flagpole Q&A


head of his show at the Georgia Theatre with Killer Mike, Atlanta rapper Big Boi spoke to Flagpole about Bootsy Collins, unreleased OutKast and undulated triggerfish.

Flagpole: OutKast used to be billed as “the player and the poet,” as if [André 3000] was the experimental half of things and you were the street half. But in the last few years, and especially on the new record [Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors], it seems like it isn’t that simple anymore. Big Boi: The whole “player and poet” thing has been a misconception. That shit wasn’t true—that was just a title that was used as a marketing ploy. I’ve always been a streetsmart and book-smart guy… You can’t judge a book by its cover, you know? I do everything. I’m a music guy; I love making all types of music. I love crossing over into uncharted territory, never doing the same thing twice. That’s why none of our records have sequels. It’s always going to be an original piece of work with us. FP: When your last album [Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty] came out, people worried you weren’t getting the respect you deserved from Atlanta radio. Has that changed? BB: The radio’s still the radio. They still play the same five songs, day in and day out. I listen to satellite radio, you know? As long as there are bodies at my concerts and they stay sold out, that’s what it’s all about. With the Internet and things like that, we’re not even dependent on commercialized radio

anymore. My songs don’t have to be channeled into people’s heads a hundred times a day for them to like them. They call it radio programming for a reason: people are being programmed.

FP: We’re coming up on the 20th anniversary of Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. What is it like to hear that stuff now? BB: It’s dope. I got that young, adolescent throat. Those are timeless classics, though, they’ll never get dated. FP: Is it strange to be one of the only Atlanta artists from those days who’s still doing it? BB: It’s just destiny, man. When you love doing what you do and you stay creative, you always stay ahead of the curve. Also, it’s about creating new sounds. I keep myself excited about making music. There’s no time limit on it, no time stamp. I’m still young with a cute face—no facial lines, got a strong back. I’m still good. We started out young, we were 16 years old. We’d probably done more as teenagers than most rappers do today. So, there’s nothing to prove—it’s just all about the music. Supply and demand. FP: Is there anybody from back then that you wish more people knew about? BB: I really wish Kilo [Ali] would have blown up nationally like he was supposed to. I can hear a lot of his influence on records today. He was a very talented guy, I don’t know what happened to him [sings part of Kilo’s “Cocaine (America Has a Problem)”].

FP: Did Ghetto Mafia really steal your car [as they claimed on the 1998 single “In Decatur”]? BB: Man, that was fantasy. I never met them; they don’t know me. They must have been talking about somebody else. They sure wasn’t talking about me. You would’ve heard something about that. Never. Not ever. Never ever.

FP: I remember reading you guys recorded something like twice the number of songs that ended up on ATLiens. Think that stuff will ever get released? BB: I got music in the vault. It’s loaded with unreleased stuff, unfinished beats—all kinds of things. You never know, man, it’s up to y’all. Like Santa Claus, it’s if y’all are naughty or nice. So be good. FP: You’ve met a lot of your own heroes over the years. Who made the biggest impression? BB: Kate Bush was big. I haven’t met her yet, but we spoke on the phone. George Clinton and Bootsy Collins, definitely. Those were two of my heroes, and I’ve gotten the chance to perform with them both. I met George Clinton when we did “Synthesizer,” and it was just a dope experience, and then I got another chance to work him on “For Your Sorrows.” I met Bootsy at a photo shoot in New York, and he was cool as hell too. That was around the time that we were working on “Hey Ya,” so we was all just sitting around the spot singing [sings part of “Hey Ya”] and just jamming to the beat with Bootsy.

FP: How’s the tour coming together? BB: I’ll be doing everything from Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik up to Vicious Lies, so the fans get a real treat with this tour. I put them in a time machine and we time jump from era to era. We got a live band, we got Killer Mike out there with me for the first time in years, so I’m excited. We’re gonna start it off right in our backyard of Athens. I thought we burned the Georgia Theatre back down after our show a couple of years ago, so we’re gonna come back and set hot fire to the building. FP: How’s your shark? BB: The shark died. Rest in peace to the shark. FP: Sorry to hear that. BB: I had got these triggerfish called undulated triggers, and they was chewing on him. Those motherfuckers are like piranhas, and they made him jump out of the water. FP: Damn. BB: Yeah. Undulated triggers, they’re nasty. They small, but they bad. Cool as hell. Will Stephenson

harles Bradley has spent many of his 64 years on this Earth wandering. Born in Florida, he grew up poor in Brooklyn, where in 1962, he saw James Brown perform. “It was a person that gave me a lot of hope,” he tells Flagpole. “I said, ‘Wow. I wanna do something like that.’” Homeless as a teenager, he ended up in Maine, working as a cook for a while. Then, he landed in Northern California. Finally, at the urging of his estranged mother, he traveled back to New York City where, to make ends meet, he began impersonating Brown at various bars under the name Black Velvet. As fate would have it, his powerful presence made an impression on Gabriel Roth, cofounder of retro-soul label Daptone Records, and in 2010, with the help of producer Tom Brenneck, Bradley recorded eight original tracks and a handful of others and compiled them under the title No Time For Dreaming— his debut, at the age of 62. “The first album was the darkness coming out of me,” he says now. “I finally got a chance to do it, and put it to music. It was truly hard to sing.” Songs like “Heartaches and Pain” found Bradley channeling his grief over the recent loss of his brother into gut-wrenching music, the likes of which had been unknown since the days of Stax and its ilk. Bradley owes a debt to his hero Brown, but in him is an honest and original voice, a metamorphic sound that only a lifetime of anguish could produce. Nowhere is this made more painfully clear than on “Why Is It So Hard?,” a Dreaming track wherein Bradley lays bare his life’s story. “I didn’t get it—why it took so long,” he says. I had to grit my teeth to keep a job, to keep enough money to go pay my rent.” Bradley’s new album, the relatively upbeat Victim of Love, is clearly a more lighthearted affair than its predecessor. Though the songs may not reverberate in the same way, they expertly evoke the psych-tinged 1970s soul made famous by some of Bradley’s other heroes, like Al Green and Bobby Womack. “[On] the second album, I’m coming out of the darkness and into the light,” says Bradley. Still, it’s hard to overlook the fact that some of that darkness remains, and likely always will. “These songs, I actually lived them,” he explains. “That’s why it hurts so bad.”


Bradley is, as he has been dubbed, the “Screaming Eagle of Soul,” Ruby Velle is some sort of waterbird. With The Soulphonics, Velle has become an Atlanta icon, a fixture on that city’s nu-soul scene. A longtime presence at Little Five Points dive Star Bar, The Soulphonics have emerged from that smoky cocoon as something unexpected and bright. Velle and The Soulphonics take bits and pieces from classic soul and R&B and fuse

them with a modern lite-pop sensibility. The music is—self-consciously, perhaps—unchallenging, tailor-made for outdoor festivals and summer road-trip playlists. The group’s debut full-length, It’s About Time, out late last year on Atlanta’s Gemco Records, is accessible but also powerful, safe for soccer-mom consumption but two steps above the typical Starbucks fare. Whether exploring rapid-fire funk (“Medicine Spoon”) or syrupy love (“Coming Home to You”), Velle and her band are convincing throughout. Like the seasoned Bradley, Velle’s music is anachronistic, but it’s a measure of her ability that she only rarely comes across as inauthentic. When she does, it’s because she doesn’t reach back far enough—”Longview” cribs from 1990s lite-hip hop and features lyricism so blankly platitudinal it might make Des’ree cringe. Still, Velle’s voice saves her; sugarcoated sandpaper, it soothes and smooths. It bears mentioning that though Bradley and Velle approach their work from vastly different places, with their respective recent outings they seem to be entering common ground: that meeting point between pain and pleasure that has always been at the heart of soul music. For one, it is a newfound mark of maturity. For the other, it is a cosmic answer to six long decades of struggle. For both, it is a promise of better things to come.

Dead Confederate


Lucy Blue

and the Musician's Life


n the Marrow, Dead Confederate’s third album, wallops just as hard as, if not harder, than the local band’s first two. Sludgy, heavy and guitar-driven, the disc showcases a band—Hardy Morris, Walker Howle, Brantley Senn, John Watkins and new addition Nick Sterchi—that’s never been light but has gone especially dense this time around. The album, released this week on the band’s own Spiderbomb label, retains the band’s sprawling guitar apocalypse, seriously dirty work that pulls from mid-’90s grunge. (The band has gotten comparisons to Dinosaur Jr. before, but this time around, they really apply.) Some variety pokes its way through the haze, though, like on the relatively frisky “Vacation,” where things lighten up a bit, or “Big City Life,” on which Morris’ drawling, yawling Southern vocals are given a little more space than usual, to great effect. The sonic weight of In the Marrow owes a lot to the way the album was recorded. Dead Confederate recorded its two prior full-length albums (2008’s Wrecking Ball and 2010’s Sugar) with the financial help of a record label and was under pressure to work quickly and efficiently. This time around, the band took its time. “The first one was recorded all live, all crammed into one tiny room, done really fast,” says Morris. “And those were songs that we really knew—we’d played them live a thousand times and knew them like the back of our hand. The second record was also recorded live, but we pretty much learned the songs right there in the studio. We went in never having played them before, so that fresh ideas could flow into the recording. And with this record… we didn’t know the songs super well, but we had played some of them live, rehearsed more. There were also a lot more songs to pull from.” Recorded with the aid of producer David Barbe at Chase Park Transduction, and with assists from local musicians like vocalist Thayer Sarrano and pedal steel player Matt Stoessel, In the Marrow’s eight tracks were culled from sessions that produced 16 or 17 songs. That seemed like a luxury to the band, says Morris. “We went in and tracked a bunch of songs and kind of stepped back from them for a while, came back in, decided which were worth tackling and in what order,” he says. “Our other two records [were] done in two weeks, wham-bam, whereas this time we listened to things and pondered over them, did some touring, were out of the studio for a while and then came back to it. We went with the best stuff instead of going with just what we had.” Besides a heavy Dead Confederate touring and recording regimen over the past several years, bandmembers have kept busy with other projects. Walker Howle has been gigging around town as Tia Madre as well as focusing on his visual artwork, while John Watkins has



THURSDAY, APRIL 18TH been contributing keys to a number of recordings. Nick Sterchi also plays in Chattanooga band The Bohannons, and Brantley Senn has been busy handling label duties as well as gaining experience as a recording engineer. Morris, too, has been at it, playing in Diamond Rugs, the band he formed with the Black Lips’ Ian St. Pe and Deer Tick’s Josh McCauley. Pile onto that a solo release, Audition Tapes, recorded in Nashville and due for release later this year. All around, this is a group of guys who seem unwilling to sit still. “As a musician, you tend to look back more on the experience rather than just on the end product,” says Morris, but he might as well be talking about his approach to life, too. “I don’t have a lot of money or anything, but I’m happy,” he says. “I’m pretty stoked by simple things. I live in a cool, cheap town with a lot of great music around. Get to tour; get to record. If I cared about driving around on a tour bus and hanging out in L.A. with famous rock stars, then I might be a little upset or disappointed in the arc of my career, but I’ve only ever done this because I’ve felt like doing it. It just kind of happens. “I still feel like I’m a kid in a band like I did before,” he continues. “I don’t have goals besides taking it day by day. I don’t think rock and roll should have goals. There’s a value in creating something and appreciating what you did.” Still, it remains important to Morris that other people hear and appreciate what he does, too. “I’d always want at least my peers and my friends and wife and fellow musicians to [appreciate it],” he says. “I want them to think it sounds great, or to be as excited as I am, at least… And as far as playing music in public, releasing albums, that sort of thing… what lets me do music every day is there’s gotta be at least a minimal financial reward to keep you going, or at least keep the bills paid, so that means other people need to appreciate it, too.” The musician’s life seems to have presented itself to Morris. There’s no choice in it, he says. “It’s not a decision. Or, man, not my decision. [I] just wound up writing songs and playing guitar. I wonder the same thing sometimes, not knowing why I’m so drawn to picking up a guitar. I like to do it. I love to do it. I never feel like I have to go out of my way to write music; it just happens when it happens. It never seems like a chore, or a job, or work or anything.”

Music News And Gossip A hearty â&#x20AC;&#x153;happy birthdayâ&#x20AC;? goes out to hardworking rocker and all-around super good guy Bryan Howard on the occasion of his 40th. Since it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be Athens if a local musician didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to work on his birthday, Howard will ring his bell in style when all of his bands play the Melting Point on Saturday, Apr. 20. You read that correctly. The HEAP, Free Mountain and the specially reunited Slackdaddy will all play this night. Oh yeah, Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other band, The Spinoffs, will open the whole thing. The show is $6 in advance, $8 at the door and is a benefit for Nuçiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Space. Hats off to, ya, Bryan! Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to many more years of thumpinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that bass and keeping the faith. For more information, see melting Stop, Look, Listen: The Georgia Museum of Art is hosting another edition of its popular Museum Mix. The late-nightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at least for the GMOAâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;event starts at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Apr. 25. All the galleries will be open, and music will be provided by Reptarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jace Bartet and William Kennedy, who will spin tunes. This is easily one of the most popular things the GMOA does all year; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s casual, free and not a bad way at all to get your night started. For more information see GeorgiaMuseumofArt and Jumble Weeds: The Athens Cowboy Choir will play Flicker Theatre & Bar Tuesday, Apr. 23 with the Orange Twin Family Band. Inspired

by mid-20th Century pop vocal legends the Norman Luboff Choir, the Cowboys feature a cast of Athens all-stars, including JoJo Glidewell (Modern Skirts), Nicholas Gould, Matt Hudgins, James Huggins III (James Husband), Bryan Poole (Of Montreal), Joe Rowe (The Glands), Davey Wrathgabar (Visitations) and Matt Yelton. Billed, as expected, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a group of men who sing the songs of the West,â&#x20AC;? the Choir will also play four days earlier (Apr. 19) at The World Famous with Kishi Bashi, but tickets for that show are long gone. See Calendar Pick on p. 18 for more info. Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cool: The Best Communities for Music Education Program, administered by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation, set a crown atop the Clarke County School District as one of its 2013 award winners. This recognition was due to the systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to arts education, in partnership with The HEAP AthFest Educates. That local nonprofit provided $40,000 in musical instruments last of Athensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; newest upstart groups, Monsoon. year, as well as facilitating after-school music Led by guitarist Sienna Chandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and buffed programs and scholarships.

There are several live videos student Tyler Redmond, who will represent over on YouTube but, sadly, the most prolific the county in the Music/Voice (Bass) category uploader, NeoBandsOfAthens, has neglected

to add his or her username to the URL, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just this stupid string of letters and numbers unfit for print. But if Google is your friend, then have at it. Monsoon next plays this Saturday, Apr. 20 at the Caledonia Lounge as part of Wuxtry Recordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Record Store Day showcase. (See Calendar Pick on p. 18 for more info.) Please note the early door time of 6 p.m., and remember that all proceeds go to benefit Nuçiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Space.

The band reports that Wuxtry will have some copies available on Record Store Day (Apr. 20) and that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be packaged with comics and â&#x20AC;&#x153;weird surprises.â&#x20AC;? Please, no surprises. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take any moreâ&#x20AC;Ś Michael Wegner from Beatles tribute band Abbey Road Live reports the band has been swapping off between new guitarists Chris McKay (The Critical Darlings) and Jason NeSmith (Casper & The Cookies), with McKay playing the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recent Melting Point gig. In recent times, the group has also been augmenting its prefab-four format with guest players like Caroline Aiken and Mike Mantione (Five Eight). Although both McKay and NeSmith are supremely competent players, each with an encyclopedic knowledge of this material, the band is calling for â&#x20AC;&#x153;any interested Beatle-friendly guitarists who can sing a mean John Lennon.â&#x20AC;?

Phinizy Lecture: Melissa Fay Greene The UGA Chapel ¡ 1:30

p.m. ¡ FREE Writer Melissa Fay Greene will speak on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Literature of Fact and Why Good Writing Still Mattersâ&#x20AC;? in the 20th Ferdinand Phinizy Lecture. She is eminently well qualified for the task; two of her five books have become Civil Rights landmarks, Praying for Sheetrock and The Temple Bombing. Sheetrock covers Melissa Fay the struggles of an African-American community on the Georgia coast against a corrupt and bullying sheriff, and Bombing elucidates the mutual support among the Atlanta Jewish and African-American communities in the wake of a synagogue bombing. Her newest book, No Biking in the House Without a Helmet, chronicles her life as a parent with nine children from three continents in the same household. The lecture is free and open to the public, with a brief reception following. [Pete McCommons] MUSIC | Friday, Apr. 19

Wuxtry Record Store Day Show Caledonia Lounge ¡ 6 p.m. ¡ $5 (FREE with

This year, beloved local retail institution Wuxtry Records will celebrate with a typically heavy load of RSD loot, plus a brand new installment in its Record Store Day compilation series. The CD will feature exclusive tracks from 14 local bands, including Muuy Biien, Easter Island, Madeline, The Rodney Kings, Helen Scott, Tunabunny, Casper and the Cookies, TaterZandra and Monsoon. Purchase of the comp will earn you a wristband for free admission into Saturday eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caledonia show, where nine of the bands featured on the CD will perform. Synergy!

The Athens Cowboy Choir, Orange Twin Family Band Flicker Theatre & Bar ¡ 9 p.m. ¡ $TBA The men of The Athens Cowboy Choir, a group founded by Nick Gould and including Brian Poole, Matt Nelson, Joe Rowe, JoJo Glidewell and many more notables, perform the tunes of Norman Luboff, the creator of the mid-century Norman Luboff Choir and a songwriter known for his mellow, echoing vocal arrangements. Luboff influenced the layered harmonies of the Beach Boys, whose walls of weaving vocals and sparse instrumentation are as close a comparison as can be offered, if paired with the genteel air of a bygone cowboy. The ACC (as the group calls itself) plays more casual versions of Luboffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs, while staying true to his celebration of nearly unaccompanied voices. Improvisation is minimal in the ACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocal collaboration, where each note sounds as loudly as the rest. [Sydney Slotkin]

Open every day 10am-4pm except Wednesday

Pixie and Eddie are both about 2 years old and are gentle and a bit shy. You can see in their eyes that they would like to trust someone nice and snuggle for all they are worth, but strangers come and go and they are just not sure what to think about this place they are in. Pixie has a big Cheshire cat smile and a tiny meow. Eddie is sweet and has big green eyes.

4/4 to 4/10





Come visit and play with the kitties!


Levi is READY! Play, pets, he loves it all and he’s ready to see the world. Not shy at all, and oh so bored in his kennel. His fur is kind of a smoky, almost black color. He’s smart, he studies things and he makes connections. Very fun and clever kitty ready for adventure.

Matters Of The Heart And Loins I had a difficult childhood and have always had emotional issues. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been medicated since as long as I can remember and am finally in a good place now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been away from my hometown for five years. Lately, though, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had resurfacing memories of being sexually abused by a family friend. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know all the details, as the memories cut off before it gets unbearable. I think this might be the reason for so many childhood difficulties. I sense that my parents may know something about it but are unwilling to admit it to themselves. Also, I looked up signs of childhood abuse and saw a lot of my unexplained actions as a kid (using the bathroom in strange places, having lots of genital health issues, being overly sexual, always feeling like I was on display, trust issues, issues [with] having my clothes taken off and my skin being touched, etc.) I have had problems being stalked as an adult, and even as a child I had male friends who were way too clingy and had to be removed from classes because they were metaphorically suffocating me. As far [back] as I can remember, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had men and boys propositioning me for sex and marriage and what have you. My family always blows it off, saying that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just animal nature for animals to be attracted to other animals. I wonder if I give off some helpless vibe, or maybe a sign that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been taken advantage of before, and that contributes to the issue. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid to bring this up, as I do not know if these memories are even real. They feel real, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of brains creating memories. The man who I suspect abused me and his wife are always very good to my familyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he paid me a ridiculous amount of money to do menial chores for him when I was in high school. I wonder if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of guilt? Either way, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if it happened or what to do about it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eating at me constantly. Irritated Yours are issues best handled by a professional counselor, Irritated. Whether or not these memories are real or manufactured, you clearly have them, and they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get addressed in 1000 words or less. Go get some help. My boyfriend and I are 25, we have secure jobs, a great house and a little money in the bank. He wants to marry me and have a childâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when we are 45. I think that this is too long to wait and think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dangerous gamble. He thinks thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when people have their lives figured out and are mature. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the timeline. I think its a commitment issue. He thinks women can have children well into their 40s with the help of a good diet and exercise. I told him that that was silly, and he said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be willing to parent a child by any

means necessary: in vitro, adoption, fostering, etc., but it has to be when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 45. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the need to marry if no children are involved, so he would like to get married and then start a family immediatelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at 45. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it, but I love him and want to be with him and start a family with him. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to wait. Do you think this is the Lordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way of telling me to leave him? Running Out of Time Your boyfriend isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to start a family right now, period. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tired of talking about it, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telling you to drop it for 20 years and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get what you want. Now, whether or not he is actually going to want to wait 20 years is another question. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m assuming you signed yourself â&#x20AC;&#x153;Running Out of Timeâ&#x20AC;? on behalf of your aging uterus, and if that is the case I would advise you to relax. I have plenty of friends who are having kids in their 40s, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing just fine. If your relationship with your boyfriend is otherwise good, maybe you should just try to enjoy it and see how things go. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the hurry? If you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the guy for you, or if you are absolutely bent on starting a family now, then yes, it is time to move on. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t assume that ideas he has at 25 are rules set in stone. My best friend just started dating someone. They have agreed that they are only dating each other and will be together for a long time. My best friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner would like them to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Facebook official,â&#x20AC;? but my best friend isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interested. I know lesbian culture isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m immersed in, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s related to that, but I wanted to know what your stance on the issue is anyway. Hopefully I can help my best friend in her relationship. P.S.: They are both out and have dated other women in the past, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an issue of coming out. Confused BFF My stance on the issue, if it can even be called a stance, is that relationship validity isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t based on public proclamations made on social networking sites. If the relationship is solid and happy in real life, then it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need validation from hundreds or thousands of people â&#x20AC;&#x153;likingâ&#x20AC;? it alongside bands, restaurants, sassy shoes and LOLcats. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not aware of any rules that are different (on Facebook, at leastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;obviously, the government is still coming down on the side of discrimination) for lesbians than straight people. What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to say here, CBFF, is that you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be concerned about the appearance of the status of your friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship in cyberspace as long as the real relationship is good.
