7|PUBLISHER’S NOTE

To Our Loyal Fan Base, Sorry, but Eric Zurlo couldn’t make it in time for the “Publisher’s Letter” so you’re stuck with me, Dan, for a “Letter from the Editor.” Don’t worry, I’ll try to replicate the same kind of excitement Eric creates at the start of every other issue. So if the cover didn’t tip you off you’re about to embark on a wonderful world of awakening. Within these pages, you’ll be treated to gadgets to help give you that morning pizzazz you may lack. Along with gadgets, we picked out a few coffee shops worth adding to your morning routine, as well as some brunch locations to drag your friends too on those lazy Sunday mornings. Awakening is so much more than just waking up from a slumber, which is why we highlight some of the things going on in Pittsburgh you might not have known existed. A freak museum, dystopian art in Lawrenceville, and an organization that’s dedicated to dispersing clean needles. Don’t worry, it’s not anything that will cause you to lose too much sleep. I can’t thank everyone who sees this magazine enough. We’d be nothing if the city of Pittsburgh wasn’t so eclectic and interesting. For a small city, it sure does harbor enough mystery to get me out of bed every morning wondering what sort of event I’ll read about that day. Something like Climb Pittsburgh doesn’t happen in every city, you know. Thanks for reading, and I hope this issue helps to open your eyes to some of the out of the ordinary things Pittsburgh has to offer.

By Dan Tallarico You’re going through the lunch box cave, looking for the royal spoon of Sparta with your loyal league of lads when suddenly the vampire unicycle team comes out of nowhere blocking your path.

By Emily King

In 1995, a group of volunteers began handing out drug needles on the streets of the Hill District. This may sound unorthodox, but it reduces the spread of infectious diseases like HIV and Hepatitis C when drug users exchange their used and contaminated needles for new sterilized ones. The result was Prevention Point Pittsburgh, an authorized non-profit organization that educates the community about drug use.

• In 2006, there were 252 overdose deaths in Allegheny County, more than the combined total of deaths from traffic accidents and homicides and more than double the 104 deaths reported in 1999. • While overdose deaths have increased, nationally, the increase in Pittsburgh has been greater than the national average.

There are, of course, critics of the program who can’t seem to justify giving out needles to drug users for free. Some facts on their website about the drug crisis in Allegheny County point out the necessity of such extreme

It’s a bed that works for you rather than against you. With free shipping to the US, now is the time to buy a Feel Seating System. It’s the next evolution in cushioning and it’ll be money well spent since a third of your life consist of you in the prone, unconscious state. Might as well be as comfortable as humanly possible while you’re at it.

the bed doesn’t cooperate with you. What good is tossing and turning, in vain, all night trying to find the one comfortable position on the bed? The makers of the Feel Seating System thought the same thing, so they created a cushion that is 100% comfortable. The Feel Seating System is made up of hand-stitched spheres that take several days to construct.

The end

result is a carefully designed bed that is as comfortable as your imagination is endless. Look at this thing, it looks like you’re laying on a giant vine of grapes, which is the key to the comfort. Each ball works together to cradle and ease the tension in your body.

looking for that late night snack, their finale to the moon basked festivities. Tom’s Diner is open 24 hours and located right in the middle of the South Side at 1715 East Carson Street. With a large selection of munchies (Crab Dip, Tom’s Fiery Fries, Jalapeno Cheddar Poppers, and Onions Rings) and comfort food to assuage any late night cravings, Tom’s Diner is a godsend.


Bed Hungry You’ll wake up in the morning and exclaim to your friend, “My heavens. This meal I devoured last night, it was everything I could have dreamed of and more. But a great meal, that late… that must have been a dream.” Your friends won’t believe you until you grab them by the hand and drag them to Tom’s Diner only to realize that it is wonderfully real, and they have all the breakfast dishes you’d want. Even the dishes you don’t know you want yet,

like Penny’s Famous Stuffed Croissant French Toast. After a long night of laughing, and dancing with friends, Tom’s Diner is prolonging the night ever so much longer.

ccording to Anton Miriello, “If you don’t leave people thinking, then you have not completed your lease in life.” This native Pittsburgh artist has certainly left people thinking, and devotes much of his time to creating strange pieces of art that leave people morbidly curious. His collection of oddities include dead animals preserved in jars, taxidermy art and sculpted mythological creatures. Anton, who refers to himself as Mr. Arm, divides his time between adding to his collection of odd acquisitions, curating his home/museum, creating high quality steam-punk style cuffs, running a secret society, leading his car club, and working on his photography business.

Anton maintains an elaborate collection of oddities and unusual items, which he displays in his Swissvale home, dubbed “Trundle Manor”. The small estate is said to be the site of a horrific suicide, and the perfect setting for a collection of everything from demoniclooking mermaids to various anomalies preserved in jars. Some of his pieces are given to him (like the mummified cat he was given on his 24th birthday). Others are found, like a perfect crow’s head during a visit to a rather creepy cemetery. The brain had been removed but the feathers remained intact. Anton says, “I find that the experience

What leads a guy to have a life of creative pursuits? For Anton, his parents certainly played a huge role in the formation of his creative mind. David and Suzann Miriello, the co-owners of New Guild Studios (he photographs their beautiful liturgical art), always encouraged their son to think differently. They raised him on old monster movies, helped him create his own toys and allowed him creative expression, even when it came to picking out his own clothes. He also owes some of his inspiration to his aunt Lisa Miriello, who piqued his young interest with her collection of skulls and bones.


is sometimes greater than the piece. Anyone can have a crow head, but not one with the back-story of this one.” Some exhibits, like his Fiji mermaids, are created. He credits Dr. Frankenstein, creator of the infamous monster, as his inspiration. On a regular basis, he welcomes curious members of the public to explore his parlor of wonders. He also created the Secret Society of Odd Acquisitions, a private club of like-minded members. Anton maintains that it is a natural human curiosity to be a witness to awe and wonderment. Proof of this is in

the interest of circus freaks, horror movies and even natural history museums. “Morbid curiosity is our greatest companion,” he explains. Anton admits that his various projects often get in the way of everyday life, but he makes no apologies for this and explains, “Obsession is a terrible thing to waste.” His work has been featured in shows at Wax, Flux, and even a special exhibit at the Warhol Museum, among others. However, these achievements mean little to Anton. He doesn’t really worry about what the outside world thinks of his art. He cre-


ates because he needs to create. As he puts it, “I tinker and create solely to engulf myself by a world of wonder that I can comfortably thrive within.” Are you prepared to behold the wonder?

When I was a six year-old girl, my utopian world would have definitely included My Little Pony. Spotting My Little Pony in one of Benedict Oddi’s complex oil paintings allowed me to find a strange solace in the grim, dark backdrop of the work. Benedict Oddi’s gallery show, “Theater of the Mind” at Luke and Eloy Gallery showed viewers a different world. The imaginative oil paintings depict a fantasy world full of magical elements and treachery. In his artist’s statement, Benedict states: “The desire for freedom, escape, and exploration influence the narrative of my oil paintings. In my representations, I examine the possibilities of utopia and dystopia through the escapist tendency to create a 49

parallel realism. The crafted pictorial environment is meant to emphasize a disconnection to a tactile reality, where by ideas and experiences are confused, allowing the viewer to assemble a personal narrative. By doing so, the work evokes a feeling of uneasiness through improbability; this imaginary voyage should feel familiar and sublime, filled with imminent danger.” The paintings feature scenes of little characters teetering precariously on cliffs, giant fish hooks dangling from the sky, billowy clouds connected by unsteady rope bridges. Viewers find familiar characters in unfamiliar situations, like My Little Pony crossing a river with a dinosaur and a coyote. These bits of recognizable

objects in his paintings personalize the experience for the viewer, which can seem at once disorienting and strangely familiar. Oddi’s process of creating his paintings is often a very involved process in which he creates preliminary sketches and even wooden structures. His preliminary sketches are just as interesting as the final paintings, and can hold their own as works of art. The wooden structures provide the precarious sense of space that is dominant in many of the paintings. Besides the conceptual aspect of Benedict Oddi’s art, it is essential to mention his technique. He has a very obvious mastery of the oil

paint medium and a capability that measures him up to the old masters. It seems that he has a respect for traditional technique of oil-painting that is sometimes missing from modern art. He takes advantage of the properties of the medium, which is evident in his rendering of light and texture. Another unique aspect of Benedict’s work is the fact that he actually makes his own oil paints, using traditional methods. You can view a video of this process on his website at www.benoddi.com. Watch out for Benedict Oddi’s solo exhibition at Modern Formations Gallery, opening June 5th.


Luke and Eloy Gallery is run by artist and jewelry designer, Brigitte Martin. Her gallery has joined the thriving arts scene on Butler Street in Lawrenceville last year. At the gallery, Martin offers her jewelry for sale and also exhibits the work of different artists. For more of Pittsburgh’s cutting edge art scene, visit Luke and Eloy Gallery for their newest exhibition, “Double Vision”. Opening March 7th, this show features artists from around the country who work in multiple disciplines and combine them in an unusual fashion. For instance, life size, confectionary rifles. and other craft items. Many of the pieces are available for purchase,

with a significant portion of the profit going to the artist. Reproductions of the artwork are also used to create t-shirts, pillows, greeting cards, jewelry and even purses. The current show, “Images of Our Lives”, which will run through March 13th, showcases the stunning photographs of several artists who worked with the Art Institute faculty and photographer Jessica Kalmar. Shows like this are vital to EAA, because they serve as an opportunity to make essential connections to the community. The show is open to the public, with a closing reception on March 13, 2009.

Speaking of Cinderella, Natalya has created many fantasy stories for girls not privileged enough to afford toptier dresses that any princess would have her closet overflowing with. Wanting to give back to the community that has supported her, in 2006 and 2007 she gave away a free dress to those in need, as long as evidence of insubstantial income was supplied. A dress of the girl’s choosing was taken for free. No strings attached, no papers to sign, nothing. Natalya said, “There are girls living paycheck to paycheck, but they just can’t afford their dream gown. I want to help them out so bad.” This compulsion to help people does not stem from a prom mishap she experienced as a child (as there was no such thing as prom growing up in Russia), but probably the fact that her parents are both doctors.

She

too wanted to be a doctor, but her father demanded she begin another profession, as doctoring is endless amount of work. So she got a degree in fashion, obviously. But fashion was


merely a placeholder being a doctor, which is why she is currently enrolled in medical school. When Natalya ultimately graduates from fashion connoisseur to become a doctor, her daughter, Sasha Mounts, is going to take the heml. Her training began at five years old when she had enough dexterity to begin sewing buttons onto outfits. With experience like that, it was easy for her to win the Art Institutes Passion for Fashion essay scholarship. Shopping for a gown has never been so stress free and with the variety of dresses to choose from it’s impossible not to find that perfect dress to transform a great night into an unforgettable night.
