Drumheller guards working scared

Union boss Kevin Grabowsky says he sees same fear among guards at minimum-security prisons across Canada DARREN KRAUSE

Wild pull off late comeback Matt Cullen scored the shootout winner after a last-gasp goal in regulation as the Minnesota Wild shocked the Oilers with a 2-1 come-from-behind win on Thursday night. Story, page 31.

Prison guards in Drumheller are on edge, with some fearing for their lives, in the aftermath of one of their own being assaulted Tuesday. Information provided to Metro through a confidential source at the Drumheller Institution claims a string of recent incidents have some guards worrying about their safety and questioning whether significant changes need to be made to ensure protection of staff. Earlier this week, a female guard was allegedly assaulted, choked with a seatbelt, tied up and left on the side of a highway near Drumheller at the hands of a convicted murderer, who claimed he was sick while on an escorted leave of absence. While an internal investigation is ongoing, the source indicated a two-fold concern at the prison: Single, unarmed escorts for minimum-security prisoners, and min-

imum-security prisoners who have been “cascaded” down from medium security, where the inmates’ security rating evaluation can be different. Kevin Grabowsky, Prairies boss for the Union of Canadian Correctional Officers of Canada (UCCO), said this “peril” experienced by the guard Tuesday is a danger of the job, but added the issue could be solved with two officer escorts and a tightening up of the security evaluations. “We’re happy the service is going to be doing some reviews of inmates placed in minimum securities. We welcome that,” he said. Dawn Bancroft, of the Drumheller Institution, confirmed they are reviewing procedures in light of the recent incident. She said the escort followed all national guidelines. “When we send ETAs (Escorted Temporary Absences) out from here, they are sent out under the direction of the policy … and the policies are generated nationally,”

Guards’ morale Grabowsky describes officers’ morale at Drumheller Institution as: Discouraged, strained, upset and frustrated. In March, William Bicknell allegedly fled from a Drumheller Institution escorted leave and held an elderly woman hostage near Sexsmith, Alta. Officials were unable to provide a current and accurate inmate-toguard ratio at Drumheller upon request.

said Bancroft. Still, the source said “the greatest fear is losing one of those closest to me and being powerless to stop it,” while acknowledging the inherent dangers of the job. Grabowsky said a certain amount of fear “keeps you on your toes,” but a fear for one’s life isn’t reasonable. Police are continuing their investigation into Tuesday’s incident.

City eyes utility rate hike in 2012

EPS Sgt. Dave Radmanovich stands next to an EPS retro-style car used specifically for CAT deployments, at the first patrol in McCauley back in September.

Residents could see a monthly increase of $8.49 on utility bills next year. Mike Koziol, general manager of infrastructure services, said sanitary and stormwater drainage rates are up because the city’s 5,400 kilometres of pipes are aging. Waste management rates are up because of the city’s work to reduce waste, along with the 2009 closure of the Cloverbar Landfill, said Koziol. The hike, to be discussed by council Wednesday, would be on top of a proposed 4.5 per cent tax increase, which includes 1.5 per cent for neighbourhood renewal. HEATHER MCINTYRE

Legislature to break after 2 days The off-again, on-again fall sitting of the Alberta legislature is still on — but as soon as it’s on, it will be off. The legislature will resume as per the schedule on Monday to discuss the global economy. But on Tuesday, it will take a month-long break. Wildrose Party Leader Danielle Smith said it’s ironic that the premier will brief the legislature on a looming economic meltdown, then announce that they’re not ready to deal with it.

CAT plan claws at crime Community Action Team partnering up with agencies to clean up most distressed streets Police hope to reduce fear, frequency of violence SHELLEY WILLIAMSON

@METRONEWS.CA

The chief’s strategy to swipe away at crime in the city’s roughest neighbourhoods is working, an Edmonton Police Commission meeting heard Thursday. Acting Supt. Ed Keller said Community Action Team (CAT) patrols in McCauley and Central McDougall/Queen Mary Park are helping areas from the ground up. “We wanted to deal

with the crime, deal with the people where they were,” said Keller. Sweeping the area with officers in foot patrols, in new black-and-white cars and on bikes is an effective CAT team method, he said. Partnering up with agencies like Homeward Trust, ETS peace officers, Street Works, the Centre to End All Sexual Exploitation (CEASE) and Boyle Street Community Services is allowing officers to get distressed people the help they need immediately, said Keller.

One thing future CAT patrols will target is booze sales, especially high-alcohol-content products at low prices in large bottles, said Keller. Chief Rod Knecht lauded the number of warrants executed during September and October CAT sweeps. “Some of those are victims, but a large number are victimizing people,” said Knecht, noting close to 130 warrants came from the first CAT deployment and even more in October’s.

CAT facts The first Community Action Team patrol in McCauley resulted in 29 arrests, 143 disorder tickets and 123 warrants in a four-day sweep of the neighbourhood. McCauley/Boyle will again be the focus of a Nov. 2-5 CAT sweep, and another deployment is planned for late November/early December in an area not yet determined.

Alberta to dump tobacco stock The province is being lauded by anti-smoking groups for being the first province to get rid of its investments in the tobacco industry. A Crown corporation has sold $17.5 million in

directly managed stock held by public-sector pension funds and the Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund. The province is making the move as it prepares to file a lawsuit against big tobacco to recover health-care costs for smoking-related illnesses. Groups including Physicians for a SmokeFree Canada say Alberta’s divestment of its tobacco shares is a first for a Canadian government. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Some say graffiti is art, but to police it’s vandalism — a crime, plain and simple. “Graffiti is a precursor to other disorders,� says Const. Gerald Jorgenson, graffiti project co-ordinator for the Edmonton Police Service. “It’s a drain on the taxpayer and contributes to the decay of a city.� Law-enforcement officials from across Canada

gathered at the Radial Rail Tunnel in Old Strathcona for a workshop Thursday to decipher the scribbles, drawings and swaths of colour that are the work of graffiti artists, or taggers. A dot isn’t always punctuation, they said; it can also be a bubble or halo. And the numeral 1 can mean the tagger works alone or is king. This kind of detective work is paying off for police, like when 176 charges of mischief were laid in a case now before city

courts. While much of the city’s graffiti is small, showing up in the form of quick scratch tags on power boxes and phone poles, Sharon Chapman of Edmonton’s Capital City Clean Up said the more elaborate, so-called throwups in the rail tunnel offer rich training opportunities for police. “With IDs from these monikers, the city is making great strides in graffiti vandalism enforcement,� she said.

Details Most graffiti in Edmonton is found downtown, in Old Strathcona and on Boyle Street. Graffiti costs the city $4 per square foot to remove. About 90 per cent of local graffiti is text; the rest is drawings.

Striving to prevent another Columbine ED ANDRIESKI/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Shooting victim spreads a positive message to Alberta teens @METRONEWS.CA

Evan Todd has seen the worst that can happen when teens head down the wrong path. On April 20, 1999, the sophomore at Columbine High School found himself at the mercy of two fellow classmates-turned-mass murderers, pleading for his life. Dozens of fellow students weren’t as lucky in the 46-minute shooting rampage by Dylan Klebold, 17, and Eric Harris, 18, in their Littleton, Colo., high school, which ended with both shooters and 13 others dead. Twenty-four more, including Todd, were injured. “I was the first student shot in the library and the

last one to speak to the murderers before they ended up killing themselves,” said Todd, now 27. He realizes that the horror he witnessed, which left four of his friends dead and others unable to walk, could have given him a negative outlook. “School life was forever different,” he said. “But we chose as a school to try and take a negative and make it a positive.” Now he speaks to teens, parents and teachers about the dangers of bullying and violence if left unchecked, and the importance of acknowledging potential victims. “I really encourage students to watch what they’re saying and doing,” said Todd, while in Fox Creek speaking to high school students.

A retailer estimate on what the average adult shopper spends on a Halloween costume and accessories (makeup, wig, mask, jewelry). this year at South Park Centre, owner Lorna Pierson points to morph suits, Smurfs, and superheroes like Thor as big sellers with both adults and families. “We offer a Halloween

experience, it’s our niche,” said Pierson. “One couple keeps coming back, and I’m sure they’ve spent $2,000.” Over at Monster Halloween, a pop-up shop along St. Albert Trail, clerk Fadhl Assaf agreed his nonstop traffic is driven by morph suits, plus gorilla suits and the usual fare of wigs and creepy masks. “Even if you don’t have a lot of money, people are willing to spend it for this one night,” he said.

Smoke detectors best fire prevention

HEATHER MCINTYRE/METRO

Annual Smoke Detector Program running Oct. 15 to 30 Residents feel safe at home, don’t think of risk: Deputy fire chief Safety goes up in smoke if a detector is not installed and working properly. That is why Edmonton Fire Rescue and the Canadian Home Builders’ Association have teamed up once again to install more than 1,000 new smoke detectors in older homes this fall. “Over 50 per cent of the

fatalities in Alberta over the last 10 years have been due to ineffective detectors in the home,” said deputy fire Chief Russell Croome. “And this is a program that will hopefully reduce (that).” A crew was in the area of 113 Avenue and 91 Street Thursday, replacing the smoke detector in the

home Joyce Basok has been living in for 58 years. “I think it’s wonderful, absolutely wonderful,” said Basok. Last weekend, firefighters visited 645 homes. A total of 236 smoke detectors were installed, as were 121 batteries. Croome said mature neighbourhoods are the fo-

cus because those areas are more likely to have fires. Firefighters are canvassing Jasper Place, Norwood, Mill Creek and Highlands until Oct. 30, asking to check detectors and replace them if necessary. There are plans to target different neighbourhoods next year.

Firefighter Graham Doody, from Station No. 5, installs a smoke detector in a mature home north of the city’s downtown core on Thursday.

Following a 90-minute battle Thursday morning, fighters said with the help of NATO airstrikes they had taken control of Sirte, ending a two-month siege and eliminating the last important holdout post for troops loyal to the deposed leader. Reports suggest that Gadhafi along with key loyalists tried to flee east toward Misrata as the last battle was ongoing.

The Colonel’s convoy was reportedly ambushed, with Gadhafi managing to flee. The ousted leader was located some time later in a storm-water drainpipe. “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot!” — the apparent words of the Colonel as he pleaded with NTC rebels for their mercy, according to fighter Mohammed Al Bibi.

There is uncertainty how exactly Gadhafi died. An alleged eyewitness said that he saw the Colonel being shot in the abdomen. Grisly mobile phone video footage appears to show a bloodied Gadhafi being roughly handled. Other footage exclusive to Al Jazeera shows Gadhafi’s shirtless body on the ground.

Harper hails end of Libyan dictator Canada’s military mission in Libya is expected to end by early November following Thursday’s death of Moammar Gadhafi. The dictator’s demise marked the end of four decades of erratic and brutal rule that saw world leaders both engage and cast out the leader of the oil-rich nation before he was finally driven from power by his own people.

“The Libyan people can finally turn the page on 42 years of vicious oppression and continue their journey toward a better future,� Prime Minister Stephen Harper said. But their actions in the final moments of Gadhafi’s life are now under scrutiny with observers concerned revolutionaries may have meted out the same kind of violent justice that charac-

Unions keep services crippled on second day of general strike Anarchists run amok in Athens Greek lawmakers passed a deeply resented new austerity bill Thursday, caving in to the demands of international creditors in order to avoid a national bankruptcy, as a second day of riots left one protester dead and more than 100 people wounded. The austerity measures won 154-144 in the 300member parliament despite dissent from a prominent Socialist lawmaker who voted against a key article of the bill. The vote was expected to pave the way for a vital $11-billion US payout from creditors within weeks so Greece can stay solvent. Clouds of tear gas choked central Athens ahead of the vote as riot police intervened to separate rival demonstrators who fought for several hours with firebombs and stones outside parliament. A 53-year-old construction worker died of heart failure after attending a mass rally, while 74 protesters and 32 police officers were hospitalized with injuries, police and state hospital officials said. Police said they detained 79 people suspected of violent conduct. After initial hours of calm, the rioting erupted when hundreds of masked

Tough meetings Greece now heads into a series of tough negotiations in Brussels involving the 17 finance ministers of the eurozone and European leaders. The meetings kick off Friday, when eurozone finance ministers gather, with the finance ministers of the full 27-nation European Union in talks Saturday, and the EU heads of state and government on Sunday.

anarchist youths attacked a peaceful rally of about 50,000 people outside parliament, pelting them with firebombs and jagged chunks of marble. The Communist-backed union members counterattacked, and chaos ensued as the two sides fought with sticks and rocks before riot police fired volleys of tear gas to separate them. Former labour minister Louka Katseli voted against one article that scales back collective bargaining rights for workers. Although she voted in favour of the overall bill, Prime Minister George Papandreou expelled her from the party’s parliamentary group. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LEFTERIS PITARAKIS/THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Wall Street protest against economic inequality has a chaotic and complicated relationship with media that has helped spread its message across the world from a small Manhattan park. Like the demonstrations themselves, Occupy Wall Street’s media operation has no clear leader or simple message. Some of its volunteers work to help reporters whose cameras and microphones dot Zuccotti Park, even as many protesters express an aversion toward the press. A red-flowered umbrella and flimsy blue tarp hanging over two tables marked the centrepiece for the media operation, amid sleeping bags and

A generation of solid economic growth has meant little in the everyday lives of most Canadians, according to a new index of wellbeing. The finding is a yellow light for decision-makers that social unrest is just around the corner unless deep changes are made, warns Roy Romanow, the advisory board chairman of the University of Waterloo group that created the index. The index suggests the middle class, in particular, is eroding. “There are some very, very troubling signs,” Romanow said in an interview. “I think if we continue on this trajectory we’re going to have bigger and bigger disparities. You can never build a solid political, social and economic community with wide disparities.”

Quebecor president PierreKarl Peladeau insists his company is not engaged in a vendetta against its CBC competitor, but is instead upholding a public duty to probe the affairs of a government-funded Crown corporation. The media mogul appeared Thursday at a parliamentary committee hearing into why the CBC is fighting access-toinformation laws in the courts.

“Despite what some may think, in other words, that we are waging a war against CBC-Radio Canada, we believe that these requests are not only legal but also legitimate and in the public interest and in keeping with the act.” QUEBECOR PRESIDENT PIERRE-KARL PELADEAU

Jungle book: The other unhappy story everyone’s talking about is the guy who let all his lions and tigers loose in Ohio and then killed himself. It turned into a bad day for the whole menagerie as state deputies turned into big-game hunters, and now most of the lions, tigers and, oh my, bears are dead. At last report, there was one lone monkey out there. My advice: don’t monkey around. Get out of Ohio.

Worth Mentioning Doctors sometimes call the anesthesia drug by its nickname — milk of amnesia. Patients are calling it the “Michael Jackson drug.” Ever since propofol was blamed in the singer’s death, patients who seldom asked or cared about what kind of sedation they were getting are suddenly peppering their doctors with questions about the potent drug. “You won’t believe how many people ... ask me: ‘Are you going to give me the Michael Jackson drug?’” said Dr. H.A. Tillmann Hein, president of the Texas Society of Anesthesiologists. While some initially balk at going under, fearing they will end up like Jackson, they come around after Hein explains that propofol, widely used for surgeries and other procedures for more than 20 years, is safe when used by a trained professional. Propofol gained notoriety in 2009 after an autopsy found Jackson died of an overdose. Prosecutors have accused his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, of giving the 50-year-old pop icon a lethal dose at the singer’s rented Los Angeles mansion. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

Just like that, a planet is born Astronomers have captured the first direct image of a planet being born. Adam Kraus, of the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy, said the planet is being formed out of dust and gas circling a two-millionyear-old star about 450 light years from Earth. The planet itself, based on scientific models of how planets form, is estimated to have started taking shape about 50,000 to 100,000 years ago. Called LkCa 15 b, it’s the youngest

scene Synopsis

The new film is a prequel to the first films and follows the template set by the first two movies. Set in the VHS era of 1988, recurring characters Katie and Kristi Rey are little girls living with their mother (Lauren Bittner) and her boyfriend (Christopher Nicholas Smith), a wedding video editor. When they start hearing strange sounds in their new house, he sets up video cameras to find out what’s keeping them up at night. Is the boyfriend obsessed or is the house possessed?

Horror hat trick Paranormal Activity franchise should be getting old, but the third instalment still offers plenty of scares Film a shining example of ‘found footage’ genre

Richard: Mark, I have to say, I’m a bit of a sucker for things that go bump in the night and even though the Paranormal Activity series should be a little long in the tooth by now, it still made me jump. Are you as big a fraidy cat as I am? Mark: I usually pop a Xanax before I see a horror film so I can better appreciate the movie for its technical merits. But I didn’t for this one. And yes, the movie did frighten me, but only in the last 15 minutes, which were terrific. I found it a bit too long getting going and had a bit too much dark humour to create that air of dread

right off the top. The first two installments of the franchise really creeped me out; this one is better made, but didn’t give me the punch until the end. RC: This one is 99 per cent anticipation, one per cent payoff, but the one per cent is pretty good. I think the low-fi feel of the movies — the picture really does look like home video most of the time — combined with really natural performances from unknown actors make the Paranormal Activity movies feel like real “found footage” movies. Most movies of the genre are a little too slick. These

aren’t. There’s no music, no stars and it feels like you’re watching something that could be real ... almost. MB: Yes, and that’s not easy. It takes real filmmaking talent to look this artless. One thing I love about the series, and this movie in particular, is how much of the plot takes place at the edges of the screen. You really have to pay attention to see what’s really happening in the frame. And the static takes almost feel like some European art film, although the technical innovation of the oscillator-cam in this film is inspired. I was also pleased

that the movie had a backstory and plot, although, cleverly, you don’t realize it until the movie is done. RC: This one is a prequel, featuring the recurring characters Katie and Kristi Rey as creepy little kids. Not sure what’s next though ... maybe Paranormal Activity in Outer Space? MB: Well, before the screening, we were warned that to prevent privacy, the theatre would be continuously scanned using night vision technology. Paranormal Activity 4, anyone?

Johnny Depp describes his friendship with Hunter S. Thompson as a ‘love affair.’

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN HOLLYWOOD

Johnny Depp has been working to bring Hunter S. Thompson’s the Rum Diary to the screen since shortly after the two of them discovered the manuscript for the book in Thompson’s attic. With the film finally hitting theatres, Depp shares with Metro, in his own words, some of his memories of his close friendship with the late author. Meeting Hunter for the first time

IN THEATRES OCTOBER 28TH

It was around Christmas time of 1994. I was in Aspen, and this friend of mine said, ‘You should come to the Woody Creek Tavern. I’ll have Hunter come down if you want to meet him.’ Somewhere around midnight the front door opened and all I could see initially were sparks — just sparks shooting everywhere, and then people jumping for cover. You could hear this sort of muffled, ‘Out of my way, you bastards!’ The sea parted, and the sparks stopped and he arrived right in front of me, and then this southern gentleman came over and said, ‘My name’s Hunter, how do you do?’ And that was it. From that second on, if we were apart we

were on the phone constantly. It was a love affair, a major love affair that hung around until he made his exit.”

with Hunter — just me and him for five straight days. And so all the stuff you read about in Fear and Loathing with the grapefruits and saving the shrimp cocktails, all that stuff ? All true.

Keeping up with the King of Gonzo Journalism

“We shared the same sense of adventure. One of the things I’ll cherish all my life is that whenever Hunter felt the need to wander out and explore, he’d call me. He’d say, ‘Colonel’ — he used to call me Colonel, Col. Depp — ‘Colonel, I need you in Havana in a week.’ I was in the middle of a film in England. I said, ‘I think I could probably work it out, all right.’ And then you find yourself on a plane to Havana. These memories are seared onto my brain.” On the road with Hunter

We were on a book tour, and he wanted me to go on the road with him as his road manager and as his head of security. He would refer to me as Ray, his head of security. So he’d say, ‘I’d like you to meet Ray, my head of security.’ And they were like, ‘That’s Johnny Depp.’ And he’d go, ‘No! His name is Ray.’ And he just stayed with that. We ended up in San Francisco because his back went out on him on the tour. So I was essentially locked in a hotel room with him, in a suite

Learning of Hunter’s suicide

“I was here, in Los Angeles. If you knew Hunter — if you really spent time with him and you knew how he negotiated life and dictated the way he was going to live his life — you knew he wasn’t going to be the guy who just sort of slipped off the chair and went away. You knew it was going to be self-inflicted. I wasn’t particularly shocked, because you knew it would happen one day. But then you start cursing the bastard, thinking, Come on, man. One last phone call? Maybe some hideous practical joke before you do it? But he did actually ultimately have the best practical joke of all, because his last wish was to be blown out of a giant cannon in his back yard. Now, there are no giant cannons of that size. He wanted 150 feet of cannon, and then I found out that the Statue of Liberty was 151 feet tall, and I thought he’d really hate me if it were any smaller than the Statue of Liberty. So we changed the plans and we built it up to 153 feet tall. We broke the records then. The great joke is that we

Becoming Hunter The Rum Diary marks Depp’s second on-screen appearance as an alter ego of Hunter S. Thompson, after first taking on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in 1998. But Depp wasn’t the first person to try to embody Thompson, and his predecessor had some advice, it turned out. “I think it was the first day of shooting on Fear and Loathing, and I had already sponged up so much of Hunter that I couldn’t help but be Hunter,” Depp says. “And I got this phone call, first day of shooting, from Bill Murray, who’d played him in Where the Buffalo Roam. And Bill says, ‘Johnny, I just want to warn you, you’ve got to be careful.’ I said, ‘About what?’ He said, ‘Well, you know the way you become as Hunter and the way you speak as Hunter, how you sort of learn how to think like him? It never goes away.’ And I was already in so deep, it was like, ‘OK! There’s nothing I can do about it now.’”

were all forced to focus on something else as opposed to focusing on the loss of a great, great friend. Now it was a question of how do we shoot the bastard into the stratosphere legally and get away with it?”

on bad puns and sight gags to hold the attention of its audience (mostly pre-pubescent boys). But as far as movies with bad puns and sight gags go, this one is pretty good. Thank Atkinson for that, as he still has the ability to make this character loveable while mugging for the camera.

Genre: Action Director: Paul W.S. Anderson Stars: Logan Lerman, Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom 881⁄2

The first in what appears to be a planned franchise of films, this steampunkinfluenced take on Alexander Dumas’ enduring classic weaves a convoluted plot without

offering much in the way of resolution. What saves the film from total disaster is a crack-supporting cast led by Milla Jovovich and Christoph Walz who get equal screen time as the titular heroes. Hard to follow, the imaginative action scenes and playful support characters save this film from total disaster. IAN GORMELY

Jason Gann, left, stars alongside Elijah Wood in Wilfred

IAN JOHNSTON

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

Ten years on, TV viewers still can’t seem to get enough of actor Jason Gann in a floppy dog suit. Which is just fine with the Aussie star of Wilfred, a short film that became an Australian TV series, only to be reinvented recently as an American sitcom. “It’s not like I’ve been wearing the suit for all 10 years. There have been long gaps,” laughs Gann, who was in Toronto Wednesday to promote Wilfred’s debut on the new FX-Canada. “But I could easily do it another 10 years. As long as

people find the character funny and interesting.” In its American incarnation, Wilfred centres on a suicidal lawyer (Elijah Wood) who meets a comely neighbour and her dog Wilfred (Gann). Except Ryan sees Wilfred as an angry, pot-smoking man in a shabby dog suit. What ensue are odd adventures in which Wilfred shows Ryan how to overcome his fears and embrace life. Gann — who also co-created the series — says fans of the original Aussie version shouldn’t worry that the show has been sanitized for North American audiences. “I never saw the two ver-

sions as all that different. To me, it just feels like the show and the character have evolved.” The American version has already proven a hit, with a second season already confirmed. “When I first read it, I laughed my ass off,” says American actress Fiona Gubelmann, who plays Wil-

fred’s owner Jenna. “There are so many lines you just don’t forget easily.” She says the most difficult thing is keeping a straight face during filming with a man-sized dog in your ear. “I’d be having a serious conversation with Elijah and all I hear behind me is ‘Ball! Ball! Ball!’. You really have to learn to block it out.” One element the American version does lack is some of the original’s swearing and nudity. “We had to work harder to keep it dark,” says Gann. “But I think we were so successful, we made the show even darker.”

RECYCLING MUSIC WILL ONLY GO SO FAR SOUND CHECK

“A big part of why we keep recycling the music of the old innovators is because of technology. With the Internet, it’s never been easier to access the past.”

ALAN CROSS SCENE @METRONEWS.CA

I’m working my way through Retromania by Simon Reynolds, a book that explores why we seem so fascinated with fetishizing music of the recent past.

R

etro can be loosely defined as everything old is new again. Anything can be retro: fashion, art, advertising, movies, TV

and, of course, music. Reynolds points out that for the first time in human history, we’ve never been this obsessed with our own immediate past. Retro isn’t some antiquarian pursuit. We’re nostalgic for things within recent living memory. We still worship the music of the 60s. The rock giants of the 70s — Zeppelin, the Stones — are as big as they ever were. Clubs still hold Retro 80s nights and acts like OMD and Spandau Ballet are on the road again. Lately, it’s been all about celebrating the grunge era of the 90s with reunions (Soundgarden), documentaries (Pearl Jam) and commemorative CD reissues (Nirvana, U2). Meanwhile, current acts

have become very successful by recycling the past. I love the White Stripes, but hasn’t Jack White just put a fresher garage-rock spin on the blues? The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand and Interpol are New Wave and postpunk with new coats of paint. Isn’t Lady Gaga just Madonna 2.0? And while Adele, Amy and Duffy have made brilliant records, they sound like something transported ahead from 1966. And think about this: give me a single new sound/genre that will endure beyond the first years of the 21st century? There have been a few — grime, dubstep, maybe whatever Kanye is doing — but I’m not sure we’ll be wistful about this music ten years

from now. A big part of why we keep recycling the music of the old innovators is because of technology. With the Internet, it’s never been easier to access the past. And because so much of our immediate musical past has been preserved through YouTube, iTunes and millions of fan websites, it’s easier to mine it for ideas and influences. That’s great. But what happens when we run out of the past? Do we just start over? Or has as this music been around long enough that it’s become an artifact and can now only feed on itself ? Or will someone have come along to push popular music forward? These are all extremely big questions. Something to think about the next time you hear about the next big reunion tour.

Dum Dum gets a smarter sound LAUREN DUKOFF/METRO WORLD NEWS

Group speaks to Metro about changing up approach PAT HEALY

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA METRO WORLD NEWS IN BOSTON

The difference between the music of I Will Be the Dum Dum Girls’ 2010 debut, and this year’s Only in Dreams, is undeniable. Yet singer and guitarist Kristen Gundred tries to deny it. At least at first. “To me it’s not

a dramatic shift,” she says. “It’s part of a process.” The singer, who writes all of the songs and goes by the stage name of Dee Dee, says that if there is any difference, it may have to do with her recording setup. “When I started, it was just some-

thing I was doing in my spare time in my house — the first songs I had written, my first attempts at recording myself — and the context of what I was doing was very different,” she says, “but what I do, it hasn’t changed much. I write simple pop songs, and try to infuse them with meaningful words. That’s always been my The Dum Dum Girls

deal.” It’s hard to tell if she’s being humble or stubborn. While all Dum Dum songs do fit Dee Dee’s description — both albums showcase an appreciation for both the classic songs of the ’50s and ’60s as well as the punk rock that followed in the next two decades — the biggest change is that on the debut, the guitars flood over elementary melodies,

while the Only in Dreams sound is full of proud and pronounced melodies that float on top of richly textured instruments and background vocals. Dee Dee at times even sounds like Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde, a comparison which would have never worked for the first album. The Dum Dum Girls EP from this summer, He Gets Me High, is a perfect tran-

sition between the two types of Dum Dum sounds. It also features a killer cover of The Smiths’ There Is A Light That Never Goes Out. “A lot of times, it’s just a song I love,” says Dee Dee of her covers philosophy. “Or it’s something where regardless of the style ... there’s an undeniable pop element of the song I can cover in a very Dum Dum Girls way.”

Three albums in and Metronomy, the electropop quartet based in Brighton, England, are only now getting name recognition in the U.S., Canada and in their native country. The second part is especially odd, because earlier this year they received a Mercury Prize nomination (the U.K. equivalent to a Grammy) for their latest album, The English Riviera. But frontman and Metronomy mastermind Joseph Mount is philosophical about the newfound fame. “Certainly with the English music press, you sometimes need to prove your worth,” he says. “Some bands get this massive hype from the beginning, and then other bands just have to stick at it until people realize you’re not going to just disappear. I guess it just feels like it’s the right time for people to feel like they can get behind it a bit more.” All the adoration may also be due to the fact that Mount and his bandmates

Noel Gallagher speaks to Metro about his solo album, his brother, and all as his normal, outgoing self JOHAN KELLMAN LARSSON

SCENE@METRONEWS.CA

In the summer of 1996 Oasis were at the peak of their career. The Gallagher brothers had been declared legends and in front of the Scottish castle Knebworth they are crowning their success with the biggest double concert ever in the United Kingdom — in front of 250,000 adoring fans. Fifteen years later Oasis have split up, brothers Liam and Noel only communicate through their lawyers and they have separate music careers. Liam has Beady Eye, and this

That’s your tactic to get me to like you?’ There will always be rumors, but I know who I am.” Lutz also claims that he’d rather live with gay men than straight men. “They’re the cleanest, and they just take care of stuff,” he explains. “Straight guys are just kids who don’t pick up after themselves.”

Twilight hunk Kellan Lutz doesn’t mind the gay rumors going around about him — and he insists he knows where they come from. “I don’t Google myself, but I’ve heard that people think I’m gay. I’ve heard it all,” he tells the Advocate. “See, I don’t really go after girls. Most of the girlfriends I’ve had have come after me. So it’s really funny when girls get offended because I don’t hit on them. They will transform their insecurity into, ‘Oh,

You have to love Europeans. Not only is wine part of their every day life, they have a ritual of pre-dinner drinks that makes booze a natural companion to their dining culture. They do it up best in Italy. Order a glass of the appealingly bitter Campari ($20.99 $27.49) and soda at any resto and you’ll get a nod from your waiter that suggests he knows you know how to drink Italian. One of my favourite Italian cities to imbibe in is Verona in the province of Veneto. It’s surrounded by the wine regions of Valpolicella, Bardolino and Soave, and the popular sparkling wine Prosecco is made nearby. The Veronese are crazy for The Spritz: A mix of two ounces of Campari’s little (and less bitter) brother Aperol ($21.99 - $25.98) with an equal part Prosecco and a dash of sparkling water. Served over ice in a large wine glass and garnished with a slice of orange, it’s an appetite enhancing refresher. Thanks to its bright orange colour, it’s also an appropriate tipple for the fall season. PRICES REFLECT THE

WEEKEND, OCTOBER 21-23, 2011

Texas Rangers’ Elvis Andrus is congratulated in the dugout after scoring on a sacrifice fly during the ninth inning of Game 2 of the World Series.

Rangers even Series

WILD

Fall Classic knotted at 1-1 on sacrifice flies from Hamilton, Young Matt Cullen scored the shootout winner as the Minnesota Wild shocked the Edmonton Oilers with a 2-1 comeback victory on Thursday night. Dany Heatley tied the game with two seconds left in regulation for the Wild (3-2-2), who continue to dominate the Oilers having won nine in a row over Edmonton. With the Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom pulled, Heatley put a shot under the arm of Edmonton starter Nikolai Khabibulin to force overtime. Ryan Jones scored the lone goal for the Oilers (2-22), who have lost four of their last five games. Both goalies finished with 30 saves. THE CANADIAN PRESS

Josh Hamilton and the Rangers are heading home with all the momentum — and their slumbering offence is finally showing signs of life. Ian Kinsler and Elvis Andrus delivered back-to-back singles in the ninth inning Thursday night before Hamilton and Michael Young brought them in with a pair of timely sacrifice flies, allowing Texas to tie the World Series with a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 2. Baffled most of the night by Jaime Garcia and the Cardinals’ stingy bullpen, the Rangers were three outs from heading back to Texas in a two-game hole. Instead, they mustered just enough offence on a night

when runs were at a premium, and they suddenly seem to have the upper hand. “It was calm in our dugout the whole night,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “You’ve got to keep fighting. We needed to get one here. And

I think tonight was one of those great ballgames that you’ll continue to see between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals.” Kinsler singled off previously untouchable closer Jason Motte to start the ninth, and Washington sent him in an effort to put the tying run in scoring position. It wound up being a bang-bang play at second, but Kinsler slid in safely just ahead of the throw by catcher Yadier Molina. Andrus followed with a base hit to centre that sent Kinsler to third, and Andrus alertly advanced to second when the cutoff throw deflected off the glove of first baseman Albert Pujols and went all the way to the plate.

“i don’t think you’ve heard a single complaint i’ve made all day, you should go to Downtown Hearing Centre!”

That was critical. Hamilton hit the first pitch from Arthur Rhodes to right field for a tying sacrifice fly. Andrus was aggressive again in moving up to third base on the play, and he came home moments later when Young hit his sacrifice fly to centre. The Rangers were in jeopardy of heading home in the same predicament they faced last year. After dropping the first two World Series games in franchise history in San Francisco, Texas managed to win Game 3 behind the pitching of Colby Lewis. But the Rangers lost the next two games and wound up watching the Giants celebrate on their home field.

Plenty of positives in Stampeders’ QB decision CFL EXTRA POINTS DAN TOTH EDMONTON@METRONEWS.CA

John Hufnagel’s decision to bench quarterback Henry Burris this week shocked the reigning CFL Most Outstanding Player, but it’s the right move at the right time and almost every other coach wishes he had the luxury of such a tough choice. Stamps backup Drew Tate has given every indication, despite limited action, that he’s the real deal and ready to step into the starting role. If Hufnagel’s hunch is right, Tate will be one of the top stories down the stretch and into the playoffs. Fail, and Hufnagel’s got one of the best QBs of this

era fuming on the sidelines and waiting for a chance to redeem himself. What could be better? The ideal scenario for Calgary is if Tate lights it up when he gets his chance, making the 36year-old Burris and his salary in the $350,000 range expendable in the off-season. Burris would attract a handsome return in a trade (could any team need a QB more than Toronto?) allowing the Stamps to pad their Canadian talent with some Double Blue draft picks. The Argonauts, after wasting a year and a half with the Cleo Lemon experiment, are now saddled with career backup Steven Jyles, who has shown only brief glimpses of potential in his half-dozen games running the offence.

The breakdown of NBA labour talks Thursday likely will force more games to be cancelled after negotiations failed to yield a deal to end the lockout. After 30 hours of negotiations over three days, the two sides remained divided over two main issues — the division of revenues and the structure of the salary cap system. “Ultimately we were unable to bridge the gap that separates the two parties,” NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver said. “We understand the ramifications of where we are. We're saddened on behalf of the game.” Union president Derek Fisher also acknowledged the seriousness of the situation. “This is not in any way about ego,” he said. “There are a lot of people's livelihoods at stake separate from us.” Without a deal, NBA Commissioner David Stern must decide soon on the next round of cancellations.

Yesterday’s answer

Leo July 23-Aug.23 A good deed done with no thought of reward will have no end of positive effects over the next few weeks. Virgo Aug. 24- Sept. 22 Someone you meet on your travels will open your mind to possibilities you never dreamed of before. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23 The most important thing now is that you resist the temptation to follow the herd. Go your own way! Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22 Stand back from yourself. Try to see why you think and act in certain ways. It makes it easier to change.

Jennifer, We are almost 6 years together and I want to tell you that with each passing year/ month/ day/ minute I love you more and more . You are everything I could ever wish for in a partner and friend. All my love.xxx

A look at the weather TODAY Min -2° Max 10° For today’s crossword answers and for expanded horoscopes, go to metronews.ca

Today’s horoscope Aries March 21-April 20 There seems to be a lot of stress in your life at the moment and you need to find ways to handle it. Exhale. Taurus April 21-May 21 Take responsibility for your own thoughts and actions. Make sure everyone knows who you are. Gemini May 22-June 21 If you’re convinced co-workers would not betray you, then give them the power to make decisions. Cancer June 22-July 22 Push your luck a bit. You are exceedingly sharp mentally at the moment, so you’ll see trouble before it arrives.

43 Dove’s call 44 Meadow 45 Always, in verse

Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21 Use your powers of persuasion

if you want to get something done.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 20 You’ll be in the mood to take a few risks today and there’s a good chance that some will pay off. Aquarius Jan. 21-Feb. 18 If you sit around waiting for other people to make the first move today, you won’t get much done. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20. For a change everyone seems to approve of what you are doing, which is nice. But don’t let their praise go to your head. SALLY BROMPTON
