TRANSFORM YOUR DAY IN BRICK INTO A TREASURED KEEPSAKE We’re excited to offer a long-lasting way to celebrate or share your moment in Brick. Described as a hybrid of framing and mounting, these custom-sized “popmounts” are individually made, archival quality plaques showcasing your story, announcement or greeting ad. They’re perfect for getting or gifting. Beautifully crafted, the high-resolution reprint is applied to a 3/8”, durable wood composite board. Topped by a UV-filtering satin laminate to protect it from moisture, fading and fingerprints, these stunning pieces are edged in black, gold, silver or white (your choice) and ready to hang.

Less expensive and more durable than framing, popmounts start at just $17 plus tax, shipping & handling. Prices are dependent on the size of the finished piece. We can create any custom size up to 24” x 36”.


To place your credit card order for popmounts, please call 804.649.6261. The front counter hours are 8:30am-noon, 1:30pm-5pm on Monday through Friday. You are also welcome to stop by our office at 300 E. Franklin St. in downtown Richmond to see a sample and/or place your order.

RUN, DON’T WALK AIDSWalk Richmond sponors rockin’ benefit show

AU G U S T 6 - 1 2 , 2 0 0 9 B R I C K W E E K LY. C O M

Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Wishing you could satisfy your need to rock with your more altruistic urges? This Saturday, you can do both: Alley Katz is hosting a benefit concert for AIDSWalk Richmond featuring six local acts for a $10 donation. That’s a mere $1.67 per band, to say nothing of that warm, fuzzy feeling you’ll get from supporting a good cause. AIDSWalk Richmond was founded this year by Scott Sibley, who previously ran the Washington, DC AIDSWalk. The organization hopes to raise money to support clinics in the Richmond area that provide low cost or free HIV/AIDSrelated services, as well as educating the community about the disease and providing support for the 3,000+ citizens of the Metro Richmond area who are HIV positive. The all-ages show will open at 3pm and the music will start with the cheerful acoustic country-pop of Susan Greenbaum, that “little lady with a big voice” who has been wooing Richmond audi-





If you’ve lived in Richmond for several years, and have not participated in the monthly First Fridays, you’re missing out. You’ll find new and exciting exhibitions, delicious fine dining, great shopping opportunities, as well as live music and unique performances. Check out Noah Scalin’s skulls at Quirk Gallery. Also, see pg. 14 for the complete listing.

ences with for more than 15 years. Fans will want to stick around for Long Arms’ mellow but creative later in the evening. If country isn’t your thing, Conshafter will take the volume and tempo up a notch with their blend of power-pop and dancey indie rock with just a touch of glam, and Hello Conductor will keep it rocking with their slick prog-emo (Is there a portmanteau word for that yet? Promo? Emog?) If that’s a little too serious for you, Battle Ghost will lighten the mood: sunny, classic pop punk with lyrics from the NOFX and Nerf Herder school of humor (these guys win my Best Bet Of the Bill award). Half Brother Sid will bring their arena-rock stylings to the bill, providing a little something for everyone. Tickets will be available before the day of show for $8 at Kulture in Shockoe Bottom and Rumors Boutique on North Harrison. – SAR AH SHAY

DUMBASS It’s obvious that JOEL TENENBAUM never listened to the CIRCLE JERKS. If he had, the 25-year-old Boston University graduate student recently ordered to pay $675,000 to four record labels (Arista Records, Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group Recordings and Warner Brothers Records) for downloading songs and sharing them for free via the KAZAA file-sharing network, would have realized the importance of “deny everything.” Given his age, not being well versed in 1980’s hardcore is understandable, but as a college man working on his PhD, Tenenbaum should at least have had a passing knowledge of RONALD REAGAN’S enduring legacy of plausible deniability or have learned the lesson of OJ SIMPSON, which is no matter how much evidence they have against you, proclaim your innocence to the bitter end. Obviously, colleges these days aren’t preparing students for life in the real world. If a student makes it all the way to the graduate level and still fells compelled to tell the truth, something is horribly wrong with our educational system. Such is the sad fate of Mr. Tenenbaum. In court last Thursday, Tenenbaum admitted under oath that he used KaZaA, LimeWire, and other peer-to-peer software to download and distribute music to others unknown and confessed that he lied in his earlier sworn testimony when he proclaimed his innocence against the charges. “Are you admitting liability for all 30 sound recordings” on which the record labels brought suit, asked the plaintiffs’ attorney Tim Reynolds. “Yes,” said Tenenbaum. “Why did you lie at that point?” asked Tenenbaum’s attorney, Harvard Law School professor Charles Nesson, who I imagine was not too pleased with his client’s confessions of perjury in earlier depositions. “It was kind of something I rushed through,” responded Tenenbaum. “It’s what seemed the best response to give.” Christ, this guy is a dumbass. He bled like a stuck pig up on the stand admitting to anything and everything Reynolds asked him, You used KaZaA to download music, right? Yes. You used LimeWire to get music without paying for it, right? Yes. Your goal was to obtain the maximum amount of music with the minimum amount of wasted effort,

right? Yes. Given his damning testimony, you have to wonder if Tenenbaum realized that he was the one on trial. Tenenbaum’s case is the nation’s second music downloading case against an individual to go to trial. Last month, a federal jury in Minneapolis ruled that JAMMIE THOMAS-RASSET, 32, must pay $1.92 million, or $80,000 on each of 24 songs, after concluding she willfully violated the copyrights on those tunes. Under federal law, the recording companies are entitled to $750 to $30,000 per infringement, but the law allows the jury to raise that to as much as $150,000 per track if it finds the infringements were willful. In his closing statement Friday, Nesson repeatedly referred to Tenenbaum as a “kid” (I think the term “idiot” would have been more appropriate) and asked the jury to award only a small amount to the recording companies. At one point, Nesson suggested the damages should be as little as 99 cents per song, roughly the same amount Tenenbaum would have to pay if he legally purchased the music online. “This is a federal case, and what is it about? It’s about a kid in his bedroom clicking on a computer screen. It seems out of proportion,” he argued, but to no avail. “The defendant is a hardcore, habitual, long-term infringer who knew what he was doing, was wrong, but did it anyway,” Reynolds countered in his closing argument, citing Tenenbaum’s admitted history of illegally downloading copyright protected music. The jury, given the hungwith-his-own rope testimony of the defendant, found Tenenbaum guilty and ordered him to pay $675,000 instead of the possible $4.5 million they could have levied against him. The thread that runs through these two cases is that both of these defendants were prosecuted for downloading tunes from artists that are multi-millionaires. It could be argued that if you are stupid enough to download major label bands on file sharing networks (how quaint), you get what you deserve, but the larger issue at play with both of these cases is that the music industry, an industry that counts profits in the billions each and every year, is waging war against the very people on which their profits depend.

fate of a




oogle “born ugly.” Stuffed in there with “If you’re born ugly, are you doomed for life?” and “Why was I born looking like this?” is a little skate mag site, right at the top, that proves all that other crap wrong. Cuz guess what? These guys couldn’t care less whether they shred their faces off, as long as they’re defying gravity on their boards—plus, scars are kind of artistic. And Born Ugly does a lot more than just sling around a bunch of pics of tricks. At the helm are artists Jim “Barf” Callahan and Mickael Broth, making sure that the skate shots are matched with the art that surrounds that lifestyle, on decks, books, shirts, and skin. They’ve produced two issues so far, in May and July, expecting a slow build-up of local and semi-local fans… but that’s not what they got. Born Ugly kind of popped off like a firework; there’s even a post on the Facebook page from a guy in Costa Rica, and all kinds of requests from stores and fans for more magazines. It’s not surprising, since Jim and Mike took such a smart and well-planned angle. “We didn’t want to design it by section, with art starting where skating stopped. We wanted to blend things in the layout. And we wanted to focus on the lifestyle, too—drinking beer with friends, deck art, building things to skate on your own, skate trips camping. Everything,” Jim pointed out. It’s really pretty brilliantly mixed, like the guy mid-ollie over some dino-skeleton monsters on Issue 1’s cover (at least I think that’s

These guys keep it real. “The most interesting aspect for me has been covering the DIY stuff,” Jim noted, “and highlighting the places around the country—around the world, even—where people with or without permission build skate parks using their own money and time. Some people in Atlanta built a concrete park and the city ended up buying it and paying the guys that built it to manage and maintain it.” Now that’s awesome, and it must have taken some serious heart. And sweat. “It’s interesting to find out what places embrace the parks, what places bulldoze them; plus, it says a lot that these guys who build them spend months doing something with their own income that may just get torn down.” So other than reading the magazine and digging through the battery of Jim and Mike’s many Web sites and whatnot (,, wiltedroses. com,, Facebook, several blogs), you can also get your fix at a Born Ugly launch party, which they throw with every issue release. A bunch of guys collaborate to build a sweet temporary park, then the grill is fired up and beers are cracked and a day is made of it. The first one was in Oregon Hill, the second at the famed Bike Lot south of the river (512 E 8th Street), and September’s number three, for which a site is as yet undetermined, promises to be bigger, better and badder.

(or not) VERDICT


4 out of 10 Rent It

Because “Boring People” would have been too obvious alking out of “Funny People,” the latest comedy from the reigning king of comedy Judd Apatow, I jotted down two things in my pretentious critic’s notebook. “It’s the funniest movie of the year” and “It’s insultingly indulgent.” Genuine laughs roll off the screen with the consistency of a clown car at its final destination. These are top improvers at the height of their game riffing on everything from weight loss to Harry Potter’s extensive schooling and getting the audience howling in delight at every step. But since when do really great jokes make up for a rambling journey of self-discovery? Who does Apatow think he is, Cameron Crowe? Sandler plays the star whose bad news has him thinking about lost love and a wasted life. He takes on Seth Rogen as his assistant/joke writer and slowly starts dragging him into his personal life, including a painfully long visit to San Francisco, where Sandler’s character woos that lost love to mixed results. Especially mixed once her husband returns from a business trip and starts throwing around some Australian badass. This trip to San Francisco (one that lasts for a weekend in movie time and what had to of been 45 minutes in real time) is a movie of its own. People fall in love, threaten divorce, fight it out, watch home movies and run to catch a disgruntled party at the airport. Plot points rattle off like they have their


own Twitter account. It felt as if they were jamming a movie through my face and that they were taking their time doing it. The problem is that it’s too short of a time for the characters to finish the emotional rollercoaster ride, but it takes too long for the film to hit all these points. Couldn’t this have been spread out over the course of a week? Couldn’t it have been interrupted with a scene of Jonah Hill ragging on “Transformers?” This entire sequence is an isolated disaster. A genuine story told so poorly that no film could recover. Even if they’d immediately jumped on a boat, shot Frodo, found the Arc of the Covenant and traveled back in time to ensure their parents fell in love, I still would have walked out saying, “Man that San Fran crap was a little much.” Even through the most excruciating sequences, I couldn’t help but respond positively to a well-timed punch line. So there’s something to be said for a movie that can make you roar even at your most uncomfortable. A film shouldn’t be defined by its greatest flaw, but what do you do when that flaw covers a third of the movie? Would “The Wizard of Oz” be such a classic if Dorothy encountered the Scarecrow, The Tin Man and… I don’t know… I was going to say, “Hitler” but that seems like a little much. How about “Scarecrow, The Tin Man and the dad from Jon and Kate Plus 8”? See? That movie would suck… no matter how funny it was. -JOE DUNN

THE TWILIGHT SAD / FAT CAT Man, a single. I didn’t think anyone made these things anymore. But here I am, with a lovely two-song 7” in my hands. And it’s quite a gift, as these talented Scots are unequivocally THE REAL DEAL. These two tracks easily match anything off of My Bloody Valentine’s “LOVELESS”, combining a sterling pop sensibility with raucous noise and pure, aggressive rock and roll. Yeah, it’s derivative, and we’ve all probably heard this tune before, but no other act working today cops these moves with such style, certainty and panache. This is some heartbreakingly majestic stuff, folks—hunt this one down, if you can. SKYSCRAPER JULIAN PLENTI / MATADOR

It’s bad luck for Darwyn Cooke that his new book had to come out just two weeks after David Mazzucchelli’s “Asterios Polyp” (previously reviewed in this space), because if there had been no Polyp, Cooke would have had the honor of putting out not just the best book of the year, but one of the most interesting explorations of the range of storytelling possibilities available to cartoonists in recent memory. Cooke’s adaptation of Stark’s novel is one of the most reverent I’ve ever seen. Instead of bringing his own interests to the forefront, or using the original text as a starting point for endless digression, Cooke delivers Stark’s novel as canon—not bothering to try and “improve” a classic, but showing how comics can tell the story in an entirely new way. Long sequences play out completely silently, followed by pages of thick dialogue and exposition that feel rich and vibrant. The entire thing is a masterpiece of pacing and mood, relying on Cooke’s tweeking of his usual cartoonish style to give it a sharp, noirish edge. Even better, the drawing (some of Cooke’s best ever) seems effortless, even breezy, so that when acts of horrific violence break out it seems that

A while back, I declared the new Neko Case album to be the best release of 2009 by virtue of its cover, which featured Ms. Case crouching barefoot on top of a muscle car, wielding a sword. Similarly, I’m going to declare Paul Banks’ new solo project to be the worst of 2009, based purely on his incomprehensible decision to grow a moustache that makes him look like a pedophilic teenage serial killer. I wouldn’t trust that man on the cover with my kids, so I’m certainly not going to trust him with my ears.

much more horrible and stark. Cooke has taken a real crime classic, a story that drives along unrelentingly, and crafted a book that’s a must-read for the bloodthirsty and the aesthete both. And when those people get together, you know somebody’s fixing to lose their maidenhead.


Not only is Levi-Strauss French, but he is one of the most important cornerstones of post-modern Continental philosophy—which means that the only thing more boring than reading the man’s work is to sit through this insufferable exercise in academic posturing. This film makes an excellent sleeping aid and works well as a pinch substitute for Rohypnol among the trust-fund art school crowd.


THE INTERROGATIVE MOOD PADGETT POWELL / ECCO Your enjoyment of this oh-so-clever exercise in postpostmodern autofellatio will depend entirely on whether you can stomach 180 pages of questions. This “novel” is written entirely in questions, as a nameless interrogator directly asks you, the reader, whether “you have any friends,” or whether you’ve “ever been lain on by a heavy naked person on a boat.” While I’ve often enjoyed watching middle-aged men masturbate, Powell’s new one is a little too onan-tastic for its own good, despite some brief moments of inspired brilliance.

I’m sure we’re all familiar with Keitel’s turn as the bad cop who plays by his own rules, so I’m just going to use this re-release as an excuse to talk about the upcoming sequel, directed by the great and evermercurial Werner Herzog. Apparently, the film will feature breakdancing souls, iguanas, Xzibit and a crack-addicted Nic Cage strangling old ladies— which instantly makes it at least 20 times better and infinitely more confusing than the original. Also: HERZOG DIRECTING XZIBIT. That’s a can’t-miss recipe for pure awesome and/or hilarity.



ASK it Will I co-star in Carl Weathers next feature?

Tarot Card of the Week:


Some meanings include spiritual understanding or seeking, conformity, marriage, religious ceremonies, tradition, matters of law, corporations, or earnings. With The Hierophant (as number five), change, alternation, challenge, risk, adjustment, and freedom, all come into play as we begin to discover who we are as spiritual beings. Do we adhere to traditional dogma, or practice our own true faith? Do we seek the whole, or accept the particular? Do we risk damnation and hell, or challenge to gain freedom? The more we develop self-knowledge and self-actualize; the more we adjust our true spiritual faith and practice. Since The Hierophant represents conservative and traditional concepts, often he refers to schools, places of worship, businesses, or corporations that conform to long-standing philosophy or procedure. Adopting a conservative approach, adherence to personal ethics or moral code, and following rules and regulations is highly suggested. Issues may concern money, income, wages, earnings, potential to earn money, or conservative investments. Additionally, heirlooms, property, or possessions kept or passed down through generations.

Seriously?! I don’t get the feeling that Carl Weathers has any features in production, nor does he have sufficient clout to initiate anything in the near future. Ask a silly question and you’ll get a silly answer, thus, if they make yet another Rocky sequel, I can easily see your being cast as a stand-in for Carl’s punching bag. Hardly a co-starring role, I realize, but we all have to get a start somewhere. Now, should Carl accidentally hit you and not the punching bag; I would imagine you’ll utter enough phrases to garner a minor speaking role; most of which will probably be edited out, as you’ll be accused of over-acting. Nonetheless, be sure your SAG card is up-to-date. I definitely see more money that way. Seriously: What I do see for you right now is your ambivalence about whether you should stay here in Richmond or not, as it looks as though you are very confused about what direction your life should take, and generally disenchanted with the way your life is currently. It appears you are doing battle with one person in particular about wanting to make changes, moving away, etc. You are definitely standing your ground and quite defensive about what you want, and it appears you have the upper hand. A big change is coming soon, and you’ll recognize the time as being right to make your move. Why? Because you will no longer feel confused and it will simply feel “right” to you.

ASTROLOGY ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, it’s an uphill battle with a problem that has been plaguing you. However, the end of the tunnel has finally arrived. Now you can focus on happier times.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Lashing out at a loved one when he or she expresses an opinion will lead to trouble, Taurus. Rather, listen with an open mind, and choose your response carefully.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, it’s good to budget purchases, but lately you’ve taken being thrifty to an extreme. Learn to indulge once in a while -- it will be frivolous and fun.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, a disagreement at work leaves you the odd person out. Be a diplomat and don’t let it get to you. Things will smooth over and return to normal soon.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, your emotions are running wild, which is not in your normal mode of operation. Don’t try to suppress them. Others will just have to adapt to this change of pace.


SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, if you can’t beat them, join them. Take this advice when your family invites you into a group event later in the week. Have fun and let your hair down.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 It’s been an interesting year so far, Sagittarius. And it’s bound to get that much more exciting. There’s nothing but good news coming in the immediate future, so enjoy it.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, offer more compliments to loved ones, otherwise you’ll be viewed as unlikable. A friend welcomes your advice on Wednesday. So give it freely.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, stay close to home for a while. There’s simply too much going on in your life at this time for you to be away from the homefront for a time.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, a rash move in the financial sector leaves you with less cash than you hoped – and all in time for a large stack of bills.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, a fight with your romantic partner leaves you at odds for a while. Don’t worry, this isn’t the end of the relationship, just a chance to make it stronger.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Stop pushing people away, Libra. Being alone isn’t always good for the spirit. Surround yourself with those who care and make a concerted effort to socialize that much more.

Here’s How It Works:

Solutio on pag ns e 19

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!


62 Metamorphosis stage 63 Crazy way to go? 64 iPod varieties 65 Like boisterous crowds 66 Neither mate 67 Kofi Annan’s home country 68 Word that can follow the ends of 20-, 35-, 41- and 56across

If the crossword puzzle makes you drop F-bombs or throw pens across the bar...then ‘Word Search’ is the game for you! If it takes you more than 3 minutes to find all the words, you should close out your tab and call a cab! Enjoy!
