What I wouldn’t do to save a squirrel [Editor’s note: We return to one of Gordon’s classic columns this week. Think of it as “Gordo’s Gold.” Or a rerun. Either one.]

coasters. “Move, dammit!” I thought, my car bearing down at 40 miles an hour. My eyes narrowed, and I gripped the wheel. I looked over at a large, recently repaired stone mailbox and thought better of it. “Come on, little guy. Move.” He covered his eyes with his little front paws and screamed. The nut fell from his mouth in slow motion and bounced into a storm grate. I screamed inside my car. Neighbors screamed inside their homes. Then his little squirrel mind went blank, and the next thing he experienced was Squirrel Jesus handing him a golden acorn and putting a comforting claw on his shoulder. Around that time, I was back in the topless joint, retelling the story and pricing out car stenciling. I hate myself.

ook at my picture over there. See the evil in my eyes? The lack of remorse? The paste-on beard? Yes, America, that is the face of a squirrel killer. After 15 years of successfully avoiding squirrels in heavily wooded neighborhoods, my streak has ended. I am converting my hood ornament into crosshairs and stenciling “#1 Squirrel Killah” on the side of my Honda. For some reason, I have always risked life and limb to avoid killing animals with my car. I will maniacally blow them away with a gun, but a car is just not a civilized way to dispense with God’s smaller creatures. Contradictions — they’re what make us human. Well, that and the fact that we actually ARE humans. Column canceled. I have a long history of being pro-(wild)life. I once locked up my wheels and blasted a stone mailbox off my grill while avoiding a cat that was asleep on the road. Standing over my steaming radiator, astride a pile of cracked limestone, I noticed the cat was still “asleep.” I felt like an idiot. So I left a fake number on the rubble and got drunk at a topless joint. I once hit a deer so hard on a country road that he sailed through my windshield and ended up spread-eagle in the passenger’s seat. Fortunately, he was unhurt, and rode all the way to Phoenix with me, loading the one-hitter and working the iPod. But my automotive squirrel-killing-free streak ended on Monday (awkwardly worded). I was traveling down one of my regular streets, Prostitution Lane, when I spotted a squirrel at 40 yards with a nut in his mouth and a song in his heart. He spotted me, too, and froze mid-street. “Surely, he will turn back,” I thought. His eyes grew as large as drink

NEWS FROM THE SCENE

Maybe it’s fate: Kismet’s a keeper

H

ow many clubs can you name that were around in 2005 and are still around today?

Exactly. Given the lifespan of Kismet Lounge on Greenville Avenue, the owners might have been onto something when they chose its name. Not only has the club been operating for over four years (damn near 50 in people years), but they haven’t downsized their hours or upsized their drink prices. They still only take one day of rest and offer champagne bottles for $100. And how many clubs do you know that have a customer appreciation night? With its excellent customer service and ever-evolving drink menu, Kismet seems destined to be a Dallas staple for years to come.

Saturday from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. 3707 Greenville Ave. 214-823-8883. kismetdallas.com/map.html.

might find yourself salsa dancing to “Fat Bottomed Girls.” What people are wearing: Mostly jeans. Guys are wearing them with polos or T-shirts and blazers. Girls are wearing them with flirty tops and heels. The beats are infectious and what starts as a toe tap or head bob can quickly turn into a tango. Pick shoes accordingly. The smoke factor: There’s a patio for cigarette-smoking. Hookah-smoking is permitted inside the lounge. The drink: Sorry, vodka/Red Bull, there’s a tasty caffeinated libation kicking your ass at this bar — the Turkish Coffee Martini. It’s more milkshake than martini. The sweet and creamy blend is so smooth, it’s hard not to chug. Not wanting to burn the midnight oil? The Pink in the Middle shot hints at coconut, vanilla, pineapple and passionfruit in the same tiny drink. The mojitos and margaritas are way above average.

Parking: There are plenty o’ free spots along residential streets in this area of Greenville … just keep your eyes peeled. Seen and heard: A sizable group of over-enthusiastic dancers doing shots back-to-back for two hours. These people were pros. I would bet you see this same group any night you go.

The bottom line: The drinks, the playlist and the crowd are diverse. Find something here you won’t find anywhere else.

Turkish Coffee Martini

OCTOBER 1 - OCTOBER 7, 2009

The music: No matter what night you show up, you’ll hear some of your fave dance hits. The beats vary depending on whether it’s Brazilian, Latin or international night. You

from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. and Thursday through

QuickDFW.com

The vibe: The crowd is low-key. The cocktail servers are attentive but not overbearing. The bartender aims to please with custom concoctions. There’s an equal mix of loungers and dancers. Guys, it’s the kind of place where you can bring a date without worrying she’ll get hit on by a sleazeball. Girls, you can bring your mom here and she won’t be offended by the cocktail waitresses’ attire. It’s classy, but not snooty.

Kismet Lounge. Monday and Tuesday

The scene: This is like stepping into a club you would see in a James Bond film. Exotic music is thumping. The lights are low to show off the twinkling star lights in the ceiling. The walls are distressed in that old-world sort of way. The seating is a mix of leather and velvet, and the tables are wooden. Perhaps it’s the hookahs and the smoke looming around them that evoke a sense of mystery.

music CONCERTS, PROFILES, REVIEWS

Voices of past inspire singer N’Dambi finds musical inspiration everywhere rykah Badu isn’t the only soul diva putting Dallas on the map. Locally raised singer N’Dambi, who’s collaborated with Badu in the past, garnered acclaim for three of her own albums in the past decade. The fourth, Pink Elephant, will be released Tuesday, and is her first on the historic Memphis R&B label Stax Records. She joins legendary names such as Otis Redding and Sam and Dave on the label’s roster, as well as contemporary singers Nikka Costa and Lalah Hathaway. Pink Elephant’s leadoff single, “Can’t Hardly Wait,” features an unforgettable kiss-off chorus: “Can’t hardly wait to be through with you/Can’t hardly wait/But still I’m [expletive]in’ witchoo.” “It’s about that bad habit or relationship you have that you want to shake,” N’Dambi said during a recent phone chat from New York. “And the word choice in the chorus — there’s no other word to say it as well as that one.” Relationship problems fuel some of the tunes on the new record, while other songs show off her knack for creating stories and characters. “A lot of times, songs come out of nowhere,” she says. “I feel like it’s some sort of divine intervention, the thing I’m supposed to write.” Here’s more from the chat with N’Dambi, who now calls both Dallas and Los Angeles home.

It felt like a good marriage. Q: For those who don’t know much about the producer you worked with on the record, Leon Sylvers III, talk about what drew you to him. N’Dambi: Thinking about how music is made, I thought about how Michael Jackson worked with Quincy Jones, Quincy already being established and having done a lot of work.

Q: You’ve worked with a few Dallas artists, including Keite Young and Erykah Badu. Who else impresses you? N’Dambi: I have worked with Geno Young and am still working on stuff with him. I’m still open to working with Dallas people, because I like to see Dallas win. I want us to get as many opportunities to shine as possible. It’s important for people all over the world to know the art that exists in Dallas. Q: What do you think about all the dance-oriented rap songs that are breaking big from here? N’Dambi: It’s something you can get into. Every element of music allows for expression. It’s important to explore all avenues when you’re being creative. Q: We’ve lost two of the greats in the past couple of years — Isaac Hayes and Michael Jackson. How did each influence you? N’Dambi: I am definitely influenced by both, especially on this album. Isaac, because he was good at arranging a musical landscape that felt like a storyboard. My new song “The One” is influenced by an interpolation of the song he did, “Walk on By.” I love his arrangement for that – it’s like a great movie. I love the way he took his voice and used it as an instrument. Michael – I love the way he would incorporate a lot of different elements in his songs. He used his mouth to make sounds like instruments. Beyond his dancing, which was amazing, he had so many ideas. If you listen to some of his demos … wow. It’s sad that we don’t have people like that anymore. It’s hard to have the words or even the experience to match what they do.

Q: “L.I.E.” and “Nobody Jones” stand out as strong story songs on the record. How did you come up with those?

N’Dambi: One of the differences with LA is that when you’re in LA you can be on, 24-7, go-go-go, but you also have the advantage of slowing it down. In Dallas, when I’m at home, I’m not working in the same capacity. I do

N’Dambi: I’ve done every approach to writing. I will start with a bassline and try to work a melody around it. Sometimes a trick is, how do you get a melody to move when a bassline is prominent? I’m driven by basslines and drums first. But there’s also the approach of writing lyrics first. I’ll have a story but no melody, and I have to figure out how to make that work. Then I’ll sometimes have the melody first and try to think of what goes with it.

all the mechanics are. And you go back and look at other things Leon has done, from Klymaxx to the Whispers and Shalamar. They all had these funky sounds and were really cool.

DJs dig the Cavern for new showcases

So we’re betting on success for a couple of new DJ nights debuting at Lower Greenville haunt the Cavern. Schwa, the Big DJ winner at Quick’s Big Thing, is teaming with James Genova for a regular Friday night disco-house-electro party dubbed “Schwassanova: Amiamo la Discoteca.” Schwa writes in an e-mail, “We’re really excited about the night because we feel there are so many DJs in town trying to throw ‘dance parties,’ but no one’s really doing it proper.” For those who need to blow off some midweek steam, Good Records

The Tennessee rock band consisting of three brothers and a cousin has been making moves toward superstardom since releasing critically praised debut Youth and Young Manhood in 2003. The group’s latest CD Only by the Night features the subtly soulful radio staples “Use Somebody” and “Sex on Fire.” We’ll see if these boys can fill up American Airlines Center. With opening act White Lies. When: 8 p.m. Where: American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Ave. Price: $46 Info: 1-800-345-7000 or ticketmaster.com

and “Save Room” in the regal Meyerson setting. The DSO isn’t accompanying him, but we’re OK with that. He’s that good.

For years, Moby had a rabid following of technophiles, but the release of 1999’s Play, which included “South Side,” his collabo with Gwen Stefani, pushed his stardom into the stratosphere. Despite Eminem declaring “nobody listens to techno,” Moby’s still going strong, having released his latest CD, Wait for Me, this summer. With Kelli Scarr.

These R&B songbirds blazed a trail through the ’90s with soulful tunes (“Hold On”) and killer harmonies (“My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It”)) that catapulted them up the charts. Now the original quartet is back — and looking as if they haven’t aged a day, we might add — and ready to take the State Fair by storm.

The studio of Jack White (the White Stripes and the Raconteurs) was the birthplace of this alt-rock power union of Alison Mosshart, Jack Lawrence, Dean Fertita and White, all known for their work with other bands. And their love child was Horehound, a debut album that’s sure to make waves — or make White the master of side projects, at the very least. With Imaad Wasif.

This British foursome has maintained its buzzworthy status over the course of three albums, mainly because it never sticks with one style or formula. The latest release, Humbug, sees the guys enter psychedelic territory under the guidance of producer Josh Homme (of Queens of the Stone Age fame). With The Like.

This band was part of the booming emo-alt-rock scene in early ’90s, when the fertile ground of Seattle was the place, and Sub Pop was the label. The original lineup has reunited for the first time in a decade, including bassist Nate Mendel, who became a full-time Foo Fighter after Sunny Day disbanded. With Jealous Sound.

alling closer in tone to Shaun of the Dead than 28 Days Later, Zombieland has its tongue planted firmly in its rancid cheek. Jesse Eisenberg plays Columbus, a former Ohio resident and uber-nerd whose obsessive-compulsive list of personal rules has somehow helped him survive a worldwide zombie epidemic. He finds himself forming an unusual alliance with Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), a lone wolf of a zombie-leveling bad guy; and, ultimately, with Wichita (Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin), a pair of closely knit sisters. They’re headed for Pacific Playland, a tawdry Southern California amusement park that, rumor has it, is a zombie-free zone. Directed by Ruben Fleischer. R. Opening Friday in wide release.

Critics and sneak-peekers have breathlessly described the low-budget horror film ‘Paranormal Activity’ as the next Blair Witch Project, calling it the best scary film in years. But until this week, it didn’t look like the limited-release film would make it to Dallas. However, a rush of local demand for the film at the Web site eventful.com has changed Paranormal Activity’s fate. It will open Friday at AMC NorthPark 15. The film’s premise: A young couple believes an evil force inhabits their home, so they set up a camcorder in their bedroom to record any goings-on. And the horror high jinks ensue. Farah Fleurima

reat dishes are often stunning in their simplicity. That’s certainly true of the corn and saffron soup featured at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek in recent months. It relies on few ingredients — eight, excluding salt, pepper and garnishes. But there’s a lot to love about this soup: a luxurious, creamy texture; an intense, fresh corn flavor; and a gorgeous saffron color. The roasted poblano pepper and chile-dusted shrimp in the garnish make a piquant contrast to the sweet soup base. It all adds up to an impressive starter that meshes with a variety of menus. Created by executive sous chef Eric Brandt, who has been running the Mansion’s kitchen since John Tesar’s departure in May, the soup debuted as a special at the onset of corn season. It became so popular that Brandt kept it on the fixed price “Taste of the Mansion” menu, where it will stay only as long as fresh sweet corn is available. “Late summer/early fall is prime time for corn,” says Brandt. SIMPLE SOUPSTER After early October, he says that Chef Eric Brandt created the corn soup featured at the the corn won’t have the flavor Rosewood Mansion. that’s key to the recipe’s success. “The beauty of the soup lies in its purity,” he says. “It’s completely based on the corn. Not only does it give the soup its flavor and a particular sweetness, but the natural starches in the corn thicken the soup — there’s no cream or thickener.” Home cooks will appreciate the starter’s versatility. Replace the shrimp in the garnish with roasted corn or fresh herbs, and you have a vegan dish that even a carnivore could crave. You can vary the stock base — vegetable, chicken, water or homemade corn stock will each work. And served hot or cold, the soup makes a good prelude to both casual and elegant entrees, including steak, salmon, scallops, brisket, pork tenderloin, braised beef short ribs or barbecued meats. DMN

Walking shelter dogs Julia and Michael Woods of Murphy have five dogs and are fostering two more. But they also volunteer to walk and play with the dogs at Plano Animal Services. They get the benefit of aerobic exercise. As do the dogs that leap with joy out of their cramped cages when the couple opens the metal doors for a visit. Julia, 35, says she has covered two miles in a session, according to her pedometer. And Michael, 41, credits the dogs for the mileage and the pace: “Many of the dogs walk me more than I walk them.” But what the couple enjoys most is the happiness of the animals. “It’s something we absolutely love,” she says. “Every time we leave, we feel good.” LARA SOLT/Staff Photographer

Where to volunteer Local shelters can be identified through volunteer agencies such as serve.gov, which is managed by the Corporation for National Community Service, or the Volunteer Center of North Texas, volunteernorthtexas.org. Plano Animal Services can be reached at 972-769-4360 or planoanimalshelter@plano.gov.

PEP TALK Doug Campbell, who has non-Hodgkins lymphoma, talks with volunteers at a blood marrow donor drive at Power Play Fitness in Dallas. All Tri charges a $150 registration fee but covers race entry fees, bike shipments for triathlons, a pre-race carbo-loading dinner and a training coach. It promises to donate at least 75 percent of the money raised to the charities and 90 percent after the minimum fund-raising goal is raised.

There’s a long tradition of charity races that call for participants to raise money. Funds from the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure help fight breast cancer. Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has been primary beneficiary of the Dallas White Rock Marathon for more than 10 years. “Doing one walk or bike ride isn’t going to change your health dramatically,” says Dr. Kenneth Saland, an interventional cardiologist at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. “But picking an upcoming event as a goal is a great motivator to begin regular exercise. I’ve had patients of mine who started training for a specific run or bike ride, then they got hooked on exercising and eating right.” But what if you can’t run the run or swim the swim? All Tri, a volunteer-run nonprofit founded this spring, offers professional coaching aimed at training people to compete while raising tax-deductible money for any IRS-approved charity they choose.

cucumbers and basil for those in need? It only costs sweat on the part of the gardeners at Hope Community Garden in East Dallas, where tillers of the field donated that impressive bounty — harvested from January to May from their 40-foot-by-60-foot donation plot. The volunteers benefit from exercise. Some also keep a small amount of what they grow. And that’s good for their health, too, says Meredith Ratliff, a dietitian at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas. “Fresh vegetables are one of the most important things you can add to your plate,” Ratliff says. “Not only are they low in calories, but vegetables also provide fiber, a variety of vitamins, minerals, and are a great source of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients are compounds that may protect our bodies from chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.” Judy Fender, coordinator of the Hope Community Garden, takes particular pride in the grateful letters she receives from the charities that tell her how these donations help the disabled, the elderly and families struggling to feed and clothe their children. “The experience of dropping off the vegetables and greens is beyond reward,” Fender says. “The people are so appreciative, and it is a humbling experience for us.”

life | sex SEX TALK WITH JENNY BLOCK

Is swinging their idea — or hers?

H

i, Jenny,

My wife is very attractive and athletic. She tells me how men tell her she has nice legs, and how a couple once asked her to have sex while she was leaving a restaurant. She said no, but is she telling me these things for a reason? Curious husband Very interesting question. I’m glad you brought it up. She may be sharing the information simply in the name of honesty. She wants to be upfront with you and so she is sharing what happened. It’s possible that she may be interested in inviting someone into your bed. The only way to find out is to ask. Now, you’re going to have to approach this delicately, of course. You don’t want her to think you are accusing her of anything. So set the scene. During a relaxing meal or a quiet evening at home, when you are both happy and comfortable, begin the conversation — slowly — and see if you can uncover what she might be thinking.

You’ll also have to address your own thoughts on the issue, and that will drive the conversation. Is this about actually doing something, or just about discussing fantasies? The two of you have a lot of talking to do. If you can swing it, a romantic getaway weekend to somewhere exotic would be a great spot for doing just that. You’re away from home, where everything is different and anything is possible. If you can’t do that, stage a “staycation� at a local hotel or even at your own place. Surprise her with a fantastic dinner, new sheets on the bed, glowing candles and fresh flowers. Sweep her off her feet and she will probably open up to you and, hopefully, satisfy your curiosity.

Ask Jenny Got a question about sex? Jenny’s your girl. (If she doesn’t know the answer, she’ll find those who do.) E-mail her at myopenbook@yahoo.com.

Green Scene Environmentally speaking, however, it should. There’s no better time than now to lessen your home’s impact on the environment and change the way you decorate and live. So, why not go green this fall? It’s not nearly as difficult to become earth-friendly as you might think.

These days, you can find stylish, ecofriendly design elements for every room in the house. And, contrary to popular belief, going green doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for sustainability. The two can coexist quite effortlessly. You can start simple by dressing your bed in luxurious sheets, throws and comforters made from fabrics such as rich, renewable bamboo or soft, organic cotton. Cover your floors with formaldehyde-

Don’t stop there. Spice up your tired sofa with a design-forward slipcover and throw pillows crafted from 100 percent recycled materials. Add bright recycled glass plates and serving pieces to your china cabinet. Buy furniture made from sustainably harvested wood or, better yet, visit local secondhand shops and repurpose. Or, look around your own home and see what you already have that can be adapted for a new use. You’d be surprised what a little creativity and some good oldfashioned elbow grease can do. Keep in mind that greening your home, inside or out, doesn’t happen in a matter of minutes or even overnight. It’s an ongoing process. The limit to how green your home can be is up to how willing you are to adjust your lifestyle. ”The choice is yours. It doesn’t take any grand
