NEWS WEIRD By Chuck Shepherd

Jen Sorensen

Curses, Foiled Again

An officer in Harrington, Del., approaching an illegally parked driver at Liberty Plaza Shopping Center in March, had suspicions aroused when she gave him a name other than “Keyonna Waters,” which was the name on the employee name tag she was wearing. Properly ID’ed, she was arrested for driving with a suspended license.

Do Fries Come With That?

“I tried the $5,000 hamburger, and it was absolutely worth it,” wrote the apparently straight-faced CNBC reviewer Robert Frank in February, describing his meal at the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay restaurant Fleur. The burger included Waygu beef, foie gras and truffles, and was served with a similarly inexplicably priced wine. Other recent consumer challenges: an $18 cup of coffee at Brooklyn’s Extraction Lab; a $100 bottle of Norwegian iceberg water (Svalbardi.com); a $2,000 pizza at New York City’s Industry Kitchen (caviar, truffles, gold flakes); and a $25,000 taco at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort in Mexico (caviar, brie, Kobe beef, langoustine lobster, rare tequila, gold flakes).

Second Amendment Follies

Michigan is an “open carry” state, and any adult not otherwise disqualified under state law may pack heat in public, except in a few designated zones. In February, an overly earnest Second Amendment fan, James Baker, 24, believed the law was an invitation to walk into the Dearborn police station in full body armor and ski mask, with a semi-automatic pistol and a sawed-off rifle, while his pal Brandon Vreeland, 40, photographed the officers’ reactions. Both were arrested.

Smoking Kills

A 78-year-old man in Easton, Pa., died in February from injuries caused when he lit his cigarette but accidentally set afire his hooded sweatshirt.

Safety Last

In 2008, Vince Li, a passenger on a Greyhound bus in Canada, stabbed another passenger, then beheaded him and started to eat him, and in 2009 was convicted, but not criminally responsible because of schizophrenia. He has been institutionalized and under treatment since then. In February, doctors signed off on an absolute release back into society for Li — now known as Will Baker — declining a conditional release, which would have required continued monitoring. Manitoba province law requires absolute discharge if doctors conclude, on the weight of the evidence, that the patient is no longer a significant safety threat.

Legal Brief

Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville, Fla., convicted and given a 20-year sentence in 2012 for firing a warning shot into a wall to fend off her abusive estranged husband, finally had the charges dropped in February. The persnickety trial judge had earlier determined that Florida’s notorious “Stand Your Ground” law did not apply, even though the husband admitted that he was threatening to rough up Alexander and that she never aimed the gun at him. With that defense not allowed, Alexander was doomed under Florida’s similarly notorious 20-year mandatory sentence for aggravated assault using a gun.

a February New York Times report, so the felines can also get buzzed. The wine outing is the humans’ preference, of course, with a loftier cachet than the happy hour most cats might prefer, like a sardine bar.

Unclear on the Concept

Wells Fargo Bank famously admitted last year that employees, pressured by a company incentive program, had fraudulently opened new accounts for about 2 million existing customers by forging their signatures. In an early lawsuit by a fraud victim who had seven fraudulent accounts opened, the bank argued, and a court agreed, that the lawsuit had to be handled by arbitration instead of a court of law because the customer had, in the original Wells Fargo contract, agreed to arbitration for “all” disputes. A February Wells Fargo statement to Consumerist. com claimed that customers’ forgoing legal rights was actually for their own benefit, in that “arbitration” is faster and less expensive.

Our Politicians At Work

After the North Dakota House of Representatives voted yet again in January to retain the state’s Sunday-closing “blue laws,” Rep. Bernie Satrom explained to a reporter: “Spending time with your wife, your husband, making him breakfast, bringing it to him in bed” is better than going shopping.

4.19.17 - 4.25.17 | syracusenewtimes.com

Big Blue News

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in January granted IBM’s 2010 application for a patent on “out-of-office” email message software, even though such messages have, of course, been ubiquitous for two decades, after the company finally convinced examiners that its patent had enough software tweaks on it to qualify. Critics, such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation, laughed at the uselessness of the tweaks. In January, the office granted Daniel Dopps a patent for “adhesive vaginal lipstick,” which his Mensez Technologies claims can cause the labia minora to tighten so strongly as to retain menstrual fluid until the woman can deal with buildup in privacy.

Meow Mixer

Why live with a cat if one cannot take it out for some wine together? The Apollo Peak in Denver and the Pet Winery in Fort Myers, Fla., serve a variety of the real grape to humans and nonalcoholic proprietary drinks for the kitties to enjoy tableside, or underneath. “Pinot Meow” ($12) in Denver and “Meow and Chandon” ($15) in Fort Myers, are specialties — basically watered catnip, according to

Entrepreneurial Spirit

Perhaps there are parents who, according to the Cinepolis movie chain, long to watch movies in theaters while their children ages 3 and up frolic in front in a jungle-gym playground inside the same auditorium. If so, the company’s two “junior” movie houses, which have opened in San Diego and Los Angeles, may bring a new dimension to “family entertainment.” Another view is that the noise, often screaming, plus the overhead lighting required for parents to monitor their tykes’ equipment-usage, plus the planned $3-per-ticket surcharge, will soon create (according to The Guardian critic) a moviegoing “apocalypse.”

Stair Master

In his third try of the year in January, Li Longlong of China surpassed his own Guinness Book record by climbing 36 stairs while head standing, beating his previous 34. Among the Guinness regulations: no touching walls and no pausing more than five seconds per step.

THINGS THAT MATTER By Luke Parsnow

PROPOSED EPA CUTS THREATEN LAKE ONTARIO’S EXISTENCE

I

ts very name originates from the Iroquois word for “lake of shining waters.” But it’s been difficult for Lake Ontario to live up to that name in recent years.

In 2012, a study by the Great Lakes Environmental Assessment and Mapping Project classified it as the most threatened of the Great Lakes, due to invasive species like zebra mussels and sea lampreys, nitrogen runoff that feeds harmful algae blooms, and pollution from mercury and PCBs. Fortunately, we have made a lot of progress with identifying these problems and finding solutions to make Lake Ontario and its many tributaries cleaner, safer places. But proposals in President Donald Trump’s federal budget could take that all away. Part of his proposed $2 billion in cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency is $300 million that funds the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), created in 2010 to clean up toxins, combat invasive species, protect watersheds from polluted runoff and restore nearby wetlands. Since then, $2.2 billion has funded more than 2,000

6

projects across the eight states that border the lakes and the waterways that flow to them, many in New York. That includes the fight against invasives like the water chestnut in Lake Ontario that has made its way to the Oswego and St. Lawrence rivers. Clumping together, water chestnuts create large floating mats of vegetation that can restrict recreational shoreline and limit penetration of sunlight, affecting the growth of native plants on the lake bottom and disrupting the area ecosystem. Joseph Chairvolotti, executive director of the Oswego County Soil and Water Conservation District, told Oswego News that recent efforts to control the spread of water chestnuts have seen some success, and new treatments are beginning this year. The GLRI also helps aquatic species that are supposed to be here. One project

4.19.17 - 4.25.17 | syracusenewtimes.com

is conducting surveys for bog turtles, a federally threatened animal, in approximately 130 wetlands in Wayne and Cayuga counties. Many projects have focused on fish in the lake, such as identifying fish pathogens and finding proper remedies, including prevention measures of a new outbreak of viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS), which killed off a lot of fish in Lake Ontario several years ago. The GLRI has allowed the U.S. Geological Survey to take on a mission restoring native fish to Lake Ontario. At one time, Atlantic salmon in Lake Ontario represented the largest freshwater population of salmon in the world. Reintroducing them will help restore a natural balance of the food web. Reintroducing sturgeon, which has been nearly extinct in Lake Ontario for a hundred years, is also softening the blow of the invasive zebra mussels, which sturgeon consume. More and healthier fish means more anglers, who contribute significantly to the economies of lakeshore towns. In 2011, spending on hunting- and fishing-related activities totaled more than $5 billion in New York state. In Oswego County alone, the overall economic impact of sport fishing is estimated to be around $42 million. Many small towns and villages depend

on the water to be clean not just for fishing, but for other activities such as swimming and boating. Areas from the Niagara River to the Thousand Islands depend on summer tourists to take part in these activities. The GLRI has funded several efforts to improve the water quality of the more than 100 beaches that line Lake Ontario. The initiative has put a lot of work into Rochester-area beaches, which have one of the thickest green algae beds in the Great Lakes, fed by phosphorus that gets into the water from fertilizers and detergents. The slimy, smelly organism has clogged those beaches in recent years, keeping swimmers away or closing beaches entirely. The GLRI helps reduce toxic contamination from household cleaning products and supports workshops promoting the use of nontoxic products and sustainable practices in several communities along the lake. It also monitors levels of bacteria in the water from sewage and supports dredging efforts to remove contaminated sediment. Let’s not forget that the Great Lakes are the largest supplier of freshwater drinking water in the world. Lake Ontario alone provides drinking water for 9 million people. Let’s also not forget that, as Gordon Lightfoot once sang, “Further below, Lake Ontario takes in what Lake Erie can send her.” Many toxins that originate from the shores of Wisconsin and Michigan can make their way here eventually on their way to the ocean. And there’s no border in the middle of the lake, either. Our neighbors on the Canadian shore are also concerned about the proposed cuts to the GLRI. Thankfully, there are many in Congress who oppose Trump’s cuts. They include Rep. John Katko and even Rep. Chris Collins, one of Trump’s earliest supporters. Indeed, funding the GLRI has seen overwhelming bipartisan support over the years. It’s not difficult to see why. Our Great Lakes are a national treasure and we have to be good stewards of them. Like water itself, the GLRI’s benefits are fluid and apparent on just about every level, from the ecosystem to the economy. GLRI projects ensure that the lake of shining waters continues to live up to its Iroquois name. SNT


KRAMER By Jeff Kramer

PLAYWRIGHT RAISES THE WOOF OVER HIS NEW COMEDY

O

ne of the great pleasures of this job used to be how easy it was to offend prudes and other censorious assbites. Hard as it might be for you younger people to believe, I once could generate angry calls and letters from readers merely for using a phrase such as “oral sex” or suggesting that smokeless tobacco is harmless for infants.

A typical letter might go like this: “Dear Mr. Kramer, “As the mother of nine children, I was horrified to read in a so-called family newspaper your disgusting and gratuitous description of your dog licking its private parts. How is this news? Normally, I don’t even read your idiotic column, but when my 8-year-old looked up from his Cheerios and asked, ‘Mom, What does ‘power-washing the furry missile silo mean?’ I had no choice.” Those were the days. Much of America had a huge stick up its keister. There were rules and standards that begged to be violated. And now? Here’s how far we’ve sunk as a society: Earlier this month, billboard signage went up on the westbound side of I-690 advertising my new play, The Golden Bitch, which opens Friday, April 21, at the Catherine Cummings Theatre in Cazenovia. Lamar, the company that rents the billboard space, displayed the ad with a caveat: If the sign generated complaints by people offended by the word “bitch,” Lamar would remove it.

I objected, of course, arguing that the word “bitch” was being used properly — a reference to a female dog — and that the images of a canine and a paw print in the logo clearly put the title in context. Privately, however, I crossed my fingers and prayed for public outrage. When it comes to making a splash, billboards are good, but billboard controversies are better. A grand, attention-getting, community-dividing fracas was in the making. I foresaw local TV affiliates documenting the removal of the sign. Then the story would go national, with defenders of the English language and the ACLU squaring off against self-appointed arbiters of public decorum. Next, I would urge my supporters to complain about any graphic pro-life billboards, especially those that link abortion to breast cancer — a flat-out lie. Our argument: We found those signs offensive. What’s fair is fair, right? Mostly, I envisioned standing room only for all six performances of The Golden Bitch, with the controversy driving interest so high that the online ticketing service —

CNYtix.com — would crash. With all that buzz, the next step would be Broadway. Well, thanks for nothing people, especially you, Donald Trump. During the campaign, The future President Thorazine did such a good job of lowering the bar of what passes for acceptable discourse in America that my edgy billboard might as well be invisible. By press time, the 40-foot-wide sign had been up for nine days, and I hadn’t heard a peep from Lamar. John Fehlman & Son Auto Services on Burnet Avenue owns the land on which the sign stands. It’s one of the few spots you can clearly see the billboard if you’re not driving on 690. John told me exactly zero customers have complained about it. He added that he hasn’t even bothered to read it. “As long as they (Lamar) pay me, I’m fine,” he said. That makes one of us. WSYR-Channel 9’s Bridge Street host Tim Fox provided me some solace on Monday, April 17, when he required some on-air prodding by me to actually say “Golden Bitch” on the air. Also, some of the posters around town promoting the show have been curiously removed. At least one was taken down by a business owner who yielded to a mother’s complaint that seeing the word “bitch” was somehow detrimental to her children. Whoever you are, ma’am, please accept a sincere thank you from the cast and crew of The Golden Bitch and from Cazenovia College, which is helping me produce the show. It sounds like you know a lot more about the word “bitch” than we do. Alas, in the dog-eat-dog world of event postering, the majority of my missing posters were probably removed by other publicity hounds scavenging for free advertising space. Some of these bottom feeders are so ruthless they’d yank down a Make-A-Wish Foundation flyer to hawk their 16-year-old Bowflex trainer. Not that any of it makes a difference now. I’ve wasted money on a controversial billboard that isn’t controversial and on posters that many people actually like. Besides, Cazenovia is like, 200 miles away or something. Who’s going to travel that far to see a stellar cast perform a savagely funny new play about people who rescue dogs? Bite me. SNT

Marchers at the April 15 tax protest in downtown Syracuse.

TAX PROTESTERS PROMISE MANY UNHAPPY RETURNS FOR TRUMP President Donald Trump says no one is interested in seeing his tax returns. At least 250 people who rallied Saturday, April 15, in Syracuse disagree. “Show us your taxes, not your bombs” and “Demand Trump’s taxes,” the group chanted as it marched around the James M. Hanley Federal Building.

8

The local Tax Day protest took place amid an estimated 200 nationwide, with participants calling for Trump to release his tax returns. More than two-thirds of all Americans say Trump should release his tax returns, according to a January poll from the Pew Research Center. “Yes We Care,” read several signs.

“There goes Donald Rotten-tail, Hiding From the $ Trail!!” read another sign, which was carried on the warm, sunny morning before Easter. At least one Syracuse Police Department car parked nearby, with an officer watching the peaceful protest. Participants included veteran activists as well as people who said they had never protested before Trump was elected. After the group marched for about a half-hour, they gathered to hear brief speeches.

“We all have to show our money,” said Eric van der Vort of the CNY Solidarity Coalition, one of several local groups that have organized events opposing Trump’s administration and policies. “What we’re here to say is that people are also holding him (Trump) accountable. We need to see his taxes.” Van der Vort also criticized Trump’s budget priorities. “We need to support people,” he said. “We need to support our schools. We need to fund Planned Parenthood. And we need to not bomb anyone.” Jonah Minkoff-Zern, director of Public Citizen’s Democracy Is For People Campaign, said Trump’s tax records could reveal any business conflicts or ties to Russia. Trump’s promised tax reform will “slash taxes on the wealthy,” he added. “We’re here today for tax justice.” The group also called on local Republican Rep. John Katko to stand up to Trump and demand he release his tax returns. After protesters confronted him last month at a Republican fundraiser in Syracuse, Katko said he would vote to demand Trump release his taxes. In fact, Katko has twice voted against measures that would have forced the House to request 10 years of the president’s tax returns. Katko “is not representing us,” Andy Mager said. “We are demanding that or we will get rid of him.” SNT Renée K. Gadoua is a freelance writer and editor. Follow her on Twitter @ ReneeKGadoua.

RECORD STORE DAY CELEBRATES PLATTERS THAT MATTER

R

ecord Store Day, the international of celebration of music on vinyl music, returns on Saturday, April 22 — and this year the 10th annual event falls on Earth Day. As it’s a day to celebrate the natural basics of life, it’s a day to also recognize the most natural way to listen to favorite tunes.

The Free Comic Book Day-inspired offshoot recognizes musicians from across the spectrum of genres and the stores that sling the sleek mediums. The independent record stores continue to have a united voice in continuing the tradition on a dayto-day basis. The Sound Garden, 310 W. Jefferson St. in Armory Square, will be participating for its 10th time. General manager Nick Shelton said the staff is very excited for another year. Record Store Day attracts people from neighboring areas and those traveling across the Canadian border, and it yields lines that snake out the door. “We’ll be opening at 9 a.m.,” said Shelton. “This list of releases is the best we’ve seen in four to five years. We’ve also marked down a whole bunch of new and used vinyl.” Although Sound Garden is the only intown record shop participating, there are seven other regional independent stores helping celebrate the occasion. Road trips can be made in less than two-hour drives in case particular albums can’t be found in a store of preference. A little-known fact of the origin of Record Store Day: It has Central New York

10

roots. “(Former Mohawk Valley resident) Chris Brown was the brainchild behind it,” said John Keller, owner of Off-Center Records, 116 Bleeker St., Utica, and a Record Store Day participant since 2008. “If there can be a day for comic books, why not hold a day for records?” Brown is currently the manager of Bull Moose Records, a Portland, Maine-based record store chain. In an interview last year with Cindy McMullen from WODZFM 96.1 (The Eagle), Brown said, “Record stores I shopped in growing up in the Mohawk Valley and Syracuse really influenced my idea of what a music store ought to be. My memories of those stores is what influenced or inspired Record Store Days.” Keller said he’s excited for the David Bowie and Ramones box sets, plus Elton John’s “Troubadour” and The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” 50th anniversary reissue. “We’re big prog fans — Rush, moe. — but I get more excited for my customers,” said Michelle Havens, manager at Reimagine Records, 4530 Commercial Drive, New Hartford. To commemorate each annual shindig,

4.19.17 - 4.25.17 | syracusenewtimes.com

various artists have albums re-pressed, whether they are reissues of studio or live albums, and new or rare material. More records have been added through the years to the roster of collectable ear candy. Plus there are annual ambassadors assigned to help push the event. In 2008, the Metallica boys were the premier ambassadors of the first Record Store Day, and they spent their time doing what they do best: playing music and meeting fans. The baton will be passed from the “St. Anger” musicians to art rock goddess St. Vincent this year. While each store orders as many of the limited releases as they’d like, getting them delivered is another matter. For example, 1960s rockers The Pretty Things are pressing 350 copies of The French EPs, while Blondie is offering 750 copies of the band’s latest single “Long Time.” “We ordered everything. It depends on the distributors,” said Shelton. “There are certain regional ones that we won’t get to see.” Record Store Day affects music on the local level, too. “There are definitely more musicians pressing vinyl records,” said Shelton, “like Good Night Forever and Bleak.” It gives active listeners another avenue to enjoy hometown-composed tunes as well as their hometown-product producers. Local record companies such as L.R.S. Records see this annual April event as a positive, even if they don’t have specific releases slated for the day. Unfortunately, there are some downsides. Mark Turley from L.R.S. Records said the process of pressing records in the last few months has been slowed. Both he and co-owner Nick Oliver — who is also involved with media consignment shop Books and Melodies, 2600 James St., which has a healthy collection of used vinyl — have seen a shift in the production process. “There are only so many pressing plants,” said Turley. “Being a small record company, we get bumped due to Record Store Day deadlines because Sony and other major companies want to reproduce all of Bruce Springsteen or other artist’s albums. These vinyls already exist, but it’s appealing to collectors.” L.R.S. has been in the business for four years, and they currently order through United and A to Z Media, receiving products from the Czech Republic. They’ll normally order 200 to 300 records from the pressing plants. Initially there was

a six- to eight-week waiting period to receive a shipment of records, but they’ve seen an increase in wait time over the past few years. Now they work around a 16week waiting time. Turley and Oliver aren’t angry about it, but they’ve learned to embrace their patience. “Record Store Day did what it intended to do,” said Turley, laughing. “It did it too well.” “Its popularity is going to keep growing. Records make such a difference,” said Havens. “The music is warmer. When you’re putting on vinyl, you’re investing your time into the music.” Keller’s Off-Center Records, which opened in 1992, has seen a consistent desire for records. “Even without Record Store Day, I was here for 15 years. Places have gone to CDs. Vinyl has outsold my CD sales.” Sound Garden’s Shelton said, “People wanting to listen to records want the artwork and liner notes. You’re sitting down, you’re opening the liner notes and reading the lyrics. You’re actively listening.” Shelton said that digital is not only “impersonal,” but it has affected the music business. Several artists, like Chance the Rapper, aren’t releasing through a label, while some are making their music available for online only. “It’s an unfortunate thing,” lamented Shelton. “Their fans are missing out on something.” SNT

ART

By Carl Mellor

Vanessa German poses with her artworks

FOUND OBJECTS CREATE FINE ARTWORKS AT EVERSON

V

anessa German’s artworks include paintings on tissue paper or toilet paper, altarpieces reminiscent of Byzantine icons, and mixed-media sculptures made from tar, plaster and various found objects.

Now she’s showing her work at the Everson Museum of Art in the format of a solo exhibition, de. structive dis.tillation, which explores notions of race, identity, mass culture. It also documents German’s stock in trade: her ability to challenge viewers, to integrate diverse influences, to recycle everyday items. The exhibit begins in the museum’s Sculpture Court with 20 of her sculptures, best described as protectors or power figures. Each has its own face and hairstyle; each stands on a wooden box or table usually topped by a bicycle or skateboard. Each is equipped with “armor,” objects ranging from watches and keys to coffee packets, from images of the Virgin Mary to toys depicting an elephant or bird. There’s no template for these sculptures. In one instance, German works with a bevy of cowrie shells. In another, she’s placed small African sculptures on the protector’s head. In a third, the figure holds a doll with African-American features and has purses wrapped around her. A fourth power figure is decorat-

ed with a clock, lantern, whisk brooms, and a small female figure inside a cage. The sculptures are called female warriors but don’t wield weapons such as a rifle or sword. Instead, they are supposed to communicate spiritual energy and help communities deal with conflict and discord. Indeed, German has referred to them as an army of healers, an army of weepers. They are dressed with objects that the artist and her helpers typically find on curbs in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh: mirrors and nails, glass bottles and electrical sockets. Those familiar items appear in a different visual context, influencing viewers to consider both their role in a specific sculpture and the concept of what’s commonplace. To make that connection, the sculptures have to fully engage the viewers. German has no problem reaching out to an audience. She’s made vivid, sometimes eye-popping artworks, each of which has its own personality. In addition, the pieces generate an

illusion of movement; it’s easy to imagine them thrusting forward. The exhibit also presents six additional power figures in the Robineau Gallery, in the same room as four photographs and 22 adorned paddles created by German. The six figures, all with some form of red color, further document the artist’s imagination. One figure rides a tricycle and has a medium-sized African sculpture on her head. In the Wampler Gallery, there’s a selection of German’s black Madonnas, 45 small paintings of African-American women. Each is positioned on a page cut from Black Beauty, a well-known book first published in 1877. Beyond that, three altarpieces, decorated with rhinestones, hang on the gallery’s wall. The most interesting of the trio combines disparate objects: shells, tiny dishes, campaign buttons for Adlai Stevenson and John F. Kennedy, small lids for containers of pressing oil, an image of God the Father as might be seen in an Ethiopian church. It’s a fine piece. The exhibition continues what is a very productive time for Vanessa German. She exhibits her work not only in her hometown of Pittsburgh but also at venues like the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, Conn. She has a track record of activism, as demonstrated by her involvement in anti-violence campaigns and her founding of ARThouse, an after-school site for children in her Homewood neighborhood. Lastly, her artworks are influenced by her social concerns, her profound interest in icons, and her commitment to doing work that’s drastically different. German’s show is on display through May 7 at the Everson Museum of Art, 401 Harrison St. The museum is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, noon to 5 p.m.; Thursdays, noon to 8 p.m.; and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be a free docent’s tour of the German exhibit on Thursday, April 20, 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (315) 474-6064.

FILM

By Walt Shepperd

FILM FEST SCREENS AN EVENING OF HOPE

Samite Mulondo

Samite Mulondo fled Uganda in 1982, pursued by Idi Amin’s agents of terror who had killed his brother. When filmmaker Glenn Ivers invited him to join in making a movie in Liberia in 1997, Samite confessed to being afraid of returning to the African continent. But he went, and they created Song of the Refugee, which debuted at Plymouth Church, won a 1997 Telly Award and achieved national distribution by PBS. Samite recalled the emotion in a telephone conversation while promoting the return of the film to Syracuse for a showing Friday, April 21, 10:30 p.m., at Eastwood’s Palace Theatre, 2384 James St. It will be part of the opening night festivities during the fourth annual Spring Fest observance of the 14-year-old Syracuse International Film Festival, which

runs Saturday, April 22, and Sunday, April 23. Admission to this fundraising gala is $25 for adults, $10 for students; visit filminsyracuse.com for information. “Glenn came to a concert at a time when so many bad things were happening,” Samite noted. “It was a refugee camp, and you could tell the kids had never seen so much pain. They were all just totally silent. I started playing my wooden flute, and they started talking. Then the mothers came around, and they all started singing.” That connection, reinforced by the experience of making the film, showed Samite that his music has healing power. Iverrs, who serves as the festival’s director of development, says that power will be in force from 7 to 8 p.m. with songs and stories from Samite. Ivers believes that the itinerary of making of Song of the Refugee, from Liberia to Ivory Coast to Rwanda, and finally to a peaceful Uganda, gave Samite a focus, which led to the formation of Musicians for World Harmony. After spending time in a Kenyan refugee camp he settled in Central New York where he now runs a horse farm in Tully. He says his wife, who teaches

social studies at Tully High School, got him into horses. The evening’s power will be enhanced from 8 to 10 p.m. with the screening of the 2016 Disney feature movie Queen of Katwe, the story of a girl who rises from poverty in a Kampala, Uganda, slum to become an international chess champion. Dan Silver, the film’s executive producer and a Syracuse University alum, will answer questions after the screening. Locally, Musicians for World Harmony, based in Ithaca, is collaborating with the North Side Learning Center in Syracuse to work on building bridges with refugees, including dementia and other senior health issues; encouraging expressions through music and poetry from middle and high school students; promoting intercultural understanding by connecting students here and abroad; and providing support for a Cooperative Extension 4-H program. The John Ben Snow Foundation and the JM McDonald Foundation have provided support. Inquiries should be directed to Mark Cass at the North Side Learning Center, (315) 430-4036. SNT

CANCER DOCUMENTARY HIGHLIGHTS ARTISTIC MASKS

T

he Syracuse International Film Festival will also participate in a screening of a local documentary after this weekend’s fest wraps. The premiere of the half-hour film Beneath the Surface will take place Tuesday, April 25, 6:30 p.m., at Eastwood’s Palace Theatre, 2384 James St.

The festival and film students at Syracuse University joined forces with the Upstate Cancer Center’s Head and Neck Support Group to develop Beneath the Surface, which tells the stories of several patients who have the disease. Head and neck cancer has seen a troubling increase in cases, especially those linked to the Human papillomavirus (HPV), according to Upstate program and events coordinator Matthew Capogreco. So a team of Upstate personnel, as well as patients and volunteers, helped develop a creative method to educate people about the disease. Patients undergoing intense radiation therapy must first be fitted with a polymer

12

mesh mask that conforms to their head and neck. Once the treatments have ended, the mask is either given to the patient or gets discarded. Beneath the Surface chronicles several masks that instead were repurposed by local artists and high school art students who altered the masks into artworks that in turn would help start dialogues about head and neck cancer prevention. The pieces were auctioned off in April 2016, with proceeds going toward Upstate’s first head and neck cancer patient fund. Capogreco noted that Beneath the Surface tells the audience the back stories to the patients’ disease as they have struggled through head and neck cancer, as

well as educate youthful viewers on how to make life choices that will help them avoid the illness. There are plans to screen the documentary in health classes and hospitals nationwide to generate increased advocacy for prevention and vaccination. The timing of the Palace premiere also coincides with Head and Neck Cancer Awareness Month. Admission is free to the Palace screening, which will also include a ques-

tion-answer session, as well as an auction of new radiation therapy masks that have been transformed into unique artworks. Donations will also be accepted for Upstate’s Head and Neck Cancer Fund. For information, call (315) 464-3605 or visit upstate.edu/events.

BOOKS

By Christopher Malone

SEAMUS KIRST GETS PERSONAL

S

eamus Kirst was featured in the March 2, 2016, edition of the Syracuse New Times, with his self-penned article, “Why I Am Crowdfunding My Memoir.” Now 27, Kirst was revealing his plans to write a book that would eventually be named Shitfaced, his “musings of a former drunk.” The collection of vignettes and essays was released last month, with a foreword by his father, veteran journalist and storyteller Sean Kirst.

What sparked this process was Kirst’s personal blog post, upon the two-year anniversary of his decision to stop drinking at age 22, that went viral. It has been reprinted, serving as the author’s introduction. He finished the story in late November, and allowed a couple months of editing and rewriting before revealing the final edition to the world. “My original essays that would become Shitfaced are in italics in the book. They’ve been written differently than the vignettes,” said the Brooklyn-based Kirst in a phone interview. The longer pieces are dispersed throughout the text. Appropriately titled with a tipped-over “i” in the title, a metaphor within itself, this is an abridged memoir. The lean text, just breaking the 200-page benchmark, makes for a quick read. Despite the brevity of the material, it’s not an easy read. As the dedication says, this is a book for “anyone who needs a warm hug or a swift kick in the ass.” “Growing up I read a lot of different memoirs,” Kirst said. “It’s my favorite genre of literature. A memoir can be a very static, defined type of book. But people write them so differently.” Shitfaced turned out differently from the way it started. “I tried to have longer chapters, like a biography, but it was too bulky. I like books that move kind of quickly, especially with this subject matter. I found it natural to write it quick and detailed, with

Seamus Kirst: “My intention was not to have this book be exclusive.” Michael Davis photo

a tone of voice that’s almost floating.” Readers will find the latter moments in both the obvious and unexpected passages in Kirst’s story, providing mental zaps and gut-twisting churns as effective as horror fiction jump scares. It begins with growing up in Syracuse, giving several nods to its history and location. Kirst then talks about wanting Barbie dolls rather than the standard boy toys, plus how this preference strengthened the relationship with his sister. He ventures into eating disorders and image issues. The light-bulb moment comes when talking about his homosexuality.

His time around the porcelain chair created a path into other dangerous avenues. Kirst’s parents often rushed him to the emergency room for stomach-pumping. Others had to talk him from walking out into traffic. He talks about his first sip of alcohol and wanting to get drunk, because drinking never failed to provide a good time. It helped establish his place in the high school popular crowd. “People have asked me: Was it challenging? Was it cathartic? Not surprisingly, it was a mix of both,” he said. “Some things I write about I am able to say, ‘Wow, that’s

really dark.’ Other things I feel totally detached from the situation and I can’t believe I reacted to it in the way described.” Shitfaced is not a cry for help, because Kirst has gone through therapy, counseling, various hospital stays and psychological examinations. He hopes people walk away with a greater understanding of what it means to be human. Kirst was valedictorian of his class at Corcoran High School. He went on to study at Brown University. “My intention was not to have this book be exclusive,” Kirst noted. He’d like to have the book reach further into the LGBTQ community. In fact, a portion of the book’s proceeds will go to the Q Center in Syracuse and the Brooklyn Pride Center. He also hopes to find an organization in the heart of a red state to continue his charitable giving. “I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from lots of people not in the LGBTQ community,” Kirst said, “and people who haven’t suffered from addiction or mental illness. I’ve heard that it’s helped people understand better.” One of the book’s key takeaways is Kirst’s emphasis that people are not alone. He writes that people are suffering from a wide variety of mental illnesses, and there are different extremes for each on top of a range of obvious symptoms. Note this excerpt from Shitfaced: “One thing is for certain: Having a mental illness does not make you weak, and it does not make you a bad or dangerous person. It makes you a person with a unique set of challenges, but they involve obstacles that can be worked through, and – if not completely overcome – then at least controlled.” Kirst also talked about the respect he has for his father. “It was cool to have my father write the foreword, especially someone so close to me and whose story is so different. It gives an interesting perspective,” he added. “We’ve both struggled with alcoholism, but we have different stories and experiences. I even learned more things about his story.” Everyone knows someone with personal issues relating to suffering, whether they are suicidal thoughts or attempts, self-image issues or coming to terms with being gay. Kirst’s revelatory book serves as a reminder that people out there are struggling, and that society should be willing to accept others and help when needed. SNT

WEAR THE WILD THINGS ARE Syracuse Fashion Week showcases creative clothing with plenty of style By Margaret McCormick

I

n cities like New York City and Los Angeles, the words “fashion week” call to mind rail-thin models in clothes you wouldn’t dare to wear (and that you can’t afford), hordes of photographers with flashing lights and celebrity-studded shows. If you’re not an A-Lister, you might as well stay home with a copy of Vogue or W magazine. In Syracuse, Fashion Week is a more down-to-earth, accessible, twice-a-year event designed to offer something for everyone. The spring edition kicks off Tuesday, April 25, with a “Sip and Shop’’ event downtown and offers a variety of shows nightly through Saturday, April 29. Several events take place in some nontraditional locales, including a CrossFit gym and a brewery in the Madison County countryside. Syracuse Fashion Week, now in its fourth year, is an extension of Syracuse Style, an event that put local fashion front and center on a runway under a huge tent on Walton Street in Armory Square. Fashion Week, which supports the Food Bank of Central New York, is Syracuse Style on steroids: a five-night celebration of the visual and tactile art of fashion. Lisa Marie Butler, 57, a theater production manager turned costume and clothing designer, is the driving force behind Syracuse Fashion Week. She and her team have created an event that is “always inclusive, never exclusive.’’ That means everyone is invited to the party, from those who create fashion, to those who model it, to those who sell it, to those who fill their closets with it. The focus is women’s fashion, but men also get their due. Models of all ages, shapes, sizes and ethnicities walk the runway. Clothes from retailers like L.L. Bean and lululemon share the spotlight with more upscale and custom fashions from local designers and shops. Is it unusual for a mid-size city like Syracuse, with a popular mega-mall that dominates the retail landscape, to have a fashion week? Not really. Cities that aren’t necessarily fashion capitals, including Baltimore, Chicago, St. Louis

4.19.17 - 4.25.17 | syracusenewtimes.com

and Cleveland, have annual fashion-focused weeks. Rochester, our neighbor to the west, has hosted a Fashion Week for seven years. Central New York embraces its Fashion Week. The event grows each year in terms of participating merchants and attendance and is a source of community pride. “I think, initially, people were surprised to learn there is a Fashion Week here,’’ says Kathie Morris, owner of The Changing Room, a shop with two locations (downtown Syracuse and downtown Baldwinsville) and a focus on vintage-inspired clothes and accessories. “Right now, no. People know about it. Fashion is big. It’s big everywhere and Syracuse is on it.’’ “I hear over and over again from people that Fashion Week is exactly the kind of thing Syracuse needs,’’ Butler says. “It’s creative culture, put on the forefront.’’ The spring edition doesn’t feature an outdoor show in Armory Square — April weather is too unpredictable, Butler says — but it does feature several new event venues. Runway Reps on Wednesday, April 26, a show mingling fashion and fitness, will take place at Urban Life CrossFit, 1003 W. Fayette St. On Thursday, April 27, Farm Fresh Fashions will strike poses at the Empire Farm Brewery in Cazenovia, where Butler’s husband, Tim, serves as brewmaster. Butler says the Madison County show will have a green, organic vibe and feature some “upcycled’’ fashions as well as styles from designers and shops outside of the downtown area, including some new designs by Butler herself. If you haven’t yet made plans to attend Syracuse Fashion Week, you had better do so quickly: It’s a hot ticket. VIP tables

FASHION WEEK EVENTS

have already sold out for the annual Fashion Week Gala at the Landmark Theater, the most formal and glamorous of the week’s events, with just a few general-admission seats still available for the Friday, April 28, event. Meanwhile, a second show has been added to the Underground Show, the popular Fashion Week finale on Saturday, April 29, at Marisa’s Fortress of Beauty, on Walton Street. Each year, Syracuse Fashion Week creative consultant Marisa Fusco transforms the space beneath her hair salon into a seductive setting to show off lingerie and fantasy fashions, with extravagant hairstyles and makeup to match.

Shows will be offered at 6 and 10 p.m., and both are expected to sell out. “It’s more like performance art than a fashion show,’’ Butler says of the Underground Show. “There’s just nothing like it.’’ SNT Margaret McCormick is a freelance writer and editor in Syracuse.

Cast members of Central New York Playhouse’s The Odd Couple. Amelia Beamish photo

CLASSIC NEIL SIMON ROMP YIELDS BOFFO REVIVAL “Brought back by popular demand” is not an empty marketing slogan. Before Dustin Czarny’s Central New York Playhouse opened for business in Shoppingtown Mall in summer 2012, he ran an antecedent called Not Another Theater Company at a location on Hiawatha Boulevard for two years. Despite a forbidding sign on the venue’s door saying that patrons in hoodies would not be admitted, NATC did encouraging business and established artistic bona fides. Last year Czarny polled current playgoers to find out which of the earlier era shows they would like to see revived. Even against groundbreaking items like the edgy Reefer Madness: The Musical, Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple from March 2011, won the poll. So it’s back, and it’s running through April 29. Except for being a comedy about divorced Manhattan professionals who find themselves living in disharmony in the same eight-room apartment, the two productions have little in common. Dan Rowlands, then a newcomer, directed the 2011 Odd Couple with his father Steve. The Rowlands’ motive then was to prove that supposedly shopworn properties could be brought back to life. J. Brazill as Oscar Madison and Gerrit Vander Werff as Felix Unger were both in top form. Different as the conception was then, Rowlands is still around and serves as the lighting designer for this mounting. 4.19.17 - 4.25.17 | syracusenewtimes.com

Director Heather J. Roach, a founding member of the company in both manifestations, pays more attention to the physical. The finished set, with 1960s-era lime green walls by Christopher J. Lupia, comes with five slammable doors. Not only are body set and movement as important as the delivery of Simon’s gag-filled lines, but the poker players can get up from the table, run around the room, and scamper under the table. This interpretation pushes away all previous Oscar and Felixes from the movies and TV series and starts fresh. John Melvin’s Oscar is given to slow burns and explosive anger, as if the character’s threats to murder Eric Feldstein’s Felix should be taken literally. Although Melvin brings extensive credits (including opera), there’s no established persona to play against. Instead, there’s a kind of Ralph Kramden-esque fury. Melvin and Roach also downplay Oscar’s lethal irony. One of the play’s most celebrated lines, “Either very new cheese or very old meat,” slips by without a laugh. Director Roach and Eric Feldstein take literally the suggestion from the poker players that Felix is in some danger of committing suicide at the breakup of his marriage. Feldstein gives Felix a face so wrenched in grief that he might just have emerged from a bombed Syrian apartment building. Even-

tually, this gives Felix mileage with the Pigeon sisters, but in the short run it feels cruel to laugh at his obsessive compulsiveness. An experienced comic player, Feldstein recovers Felix’s balance and reaches his most sublime moment swanning while vacuuming at the beginning of the third act. The showstopping innovation in this production is the elevation of those British imports, the Pigeon sisters. Neither Karen Greenfield (Cecily) nor Libby Montecalvo (Gwendolyn) has an established record as a comedienne; Greenfield’s bio stresses her work as a set painter. What Roach, a sympathetic female director, has done is to recreate the girls from the ground up, with plenty of body English (yes, that’s the word) and a saucy sexiness. Gwen tells the boys she likes to cool off in the heat wave by sitting in the altogether and letting breezes from an open refrigerator waft over her. Roach has at last explicated the hidden joke in the script: The sisters are named for the two damsels in Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Roach’s efforts to rethink The Odd Couple are evident from the beginning with the poker players in the first act. Cigar-chomping Jim Magnarelli as Speed and the all-business Chris Shepherd as Roy have the requisite jack-hammer Gotham delivery that so many Simon lines require and might also fit in a production of, say, Guys and Dolls. They get every last laugh the words will allow. As Vinnie, however, usually seen as a henpecked, sniveling wimp, Roach has cast tall, comely Derek Potocki. He’s the first Vinnie to look like a leading man, but he still delivers. To separate Murray the cop and make him more sympathetic than the others, Roach has called on soft-spoken Phil Brady, who surprised many people as Lennie in Of Mice and Men. He doesn’t talk like a hard-edged New Yorker, increasing the response when he cracks the whip in his own tempo. The Odd Couple has been one of the most-often produced American stage comedies of the last half-century. This Central New York Playhouse revival demonstrates why. SNT

ROCK QUEEN CAROLE KING CROWNED IN TOURING SHOW

Ben Fankhauser and Erika Olson in Famous Artists’ touring production of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Joan Marcus photo

eautiful: The Carole King Musical is the definition of a jukebox musical: a performance stringing together a storyline with pop hits. But according to actress Erika Olson, who is part of the touring King show presented this week by Famous Artists at the Landmark Theatre, 362 S. Salina St., it’s not your typical jukebox musical.

There was no school-based or extracurricular performance art education? No. It was right around the time California started going under financially. Many programs were getting cut, and the arts were the first to go. It was sad, and so I only spent one year of high school at home. Do you think arts programs will continue to be the most at risk for funding cuts? Well, with the recent changes in the political world, you never really know. I’d like to believe the arts are going to stay strong. They’re so crucial to society. That’s something I’ve become more aware of while on tour, bringing this show to different cities across the country. There are universal effects the arts have on people. Is this your first big production? This is my first. I’ve done professional gigs out in California, but this is by far the biggest thing I’ve done. How nervous were you? At this point, not very. Initially I was pretty nervous; apprehensive, I guess, more than nervous. I think a lot of performers experience this. When we step on stage, it really is our happy space. Do you have any pre-show superstitions? This is pretty weird, but I have to sing NEXT PAGE

Beautiful tells the true story of longtime musician and songwriter King (played by Julia Knitel), her life before and after reaching stardom, as she fell in and out of love. King’s first husband, Gerry Goffin (Liam Tobin), was also her songwriting collaborator. Their first notable hit was “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” in 1959. Olson is portraying Cynthia Weil in her very first role with a national touring production. A May 2016 graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, Olson is excited to take on this role as a notable songwriter in American music history. Weil and her husband Barry Mann (portrayed by Ben Fankhauser) collaborated with several artists in the early 1960s, crafting music and lyrics for familiar Top 40 chart-toppers. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical will be performed Wednesday, April 19, and Thursday, April 20, 7:30 p.m.; Friday, April 21, 8 p.m.; Saturday, April 22, 2 and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, April 23, 1 and 6:30 p.m. Tickets range from $35 to $125. For information, call (315) 424-8210 or call (315) 475-7979, or online at landmarktheatre.org. Olson talked about Beautiful when it made a tour stop last week in Schenectady. How long have you performed with Beautiful? For about seven months now. I joined in September. After graduating, I spent a summer in New York City, and that’s

when I auditioned. I feel very lucky, very blessed to have gotten this job. What coaxed you into the performing arts? Similarly to a lot of people in the business, I was born doing it. My parents say I started singing as soon as I came out of the womb. (Laughs.) But I took several dance and voice lessons, plus working at the local theaters in my hometown. This really did turn into a passion, and I didn’t want to do anything else. I ended up going across the country to a boarding school in Massachusetts. We didn’t have those opportunities in our little town.

STAGE

Continued from last page

my first song in the show, in my dressing room, and that’s even after warming up. I have this weird feeling that if I don’t sing it before I step out and onto the stage, I have this fear I’ll forget the words. You’re playing Cynthia Weil, half of the husband-wife team of dynamic songwriters in American history. What’s that like? I heard this wonderful interview where (Weil) was talking about all the moves she was making at a young age, being a woman in this industry during the 1950s and 1960s. There weren’t many women at all working in the industry. But she never thought about that. She did what she wanted to do. All the doors she wanted to open were able to be opened. It’s remarkable. Weil had a passion and was driven. She was confident with her writing and with her lyrics. She felt that Donnie Kirshner, who was known as “The Man with the Golden Ear,” needed to hear these lyrics. And she marched in and said, “Hey, you’re gonna listen to me and you will

18

love what you hear.” And he did. The story in itself is inspiring, especially for me for getting to play her on stage. She and Carole King had a great friendship, but they were both kind of competing while writing all of these songs. There was a comradeship that developed through healthy competition. Great music came from it. Were you familiar with Weil’s music prior to taking the role? My process is similar to that of audience members. I recognized the songs, but I had no idea she and Mann were the creators behind these songs. They wrote so many. Has this production met your expectations? Normally when I hear the term “jukebox musical,” it’s songs from the Great American Songbook or pop hits strung together by a fictional plot. This is what I was expecting. These can be hit-or-miss. Obviously, Jersey Boys is a huge success. This story is also a true story. It’s great to see and hear the audience’s experience. There is such a sense of nostalgia when people hear “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” “It’s Too Late” and “We Gotta Get Out of This Place.” You can feel it from the audience, that anticipatory breath. And it makes us really excited to share it.

Do you see this niche of musicals becoming more popular? I think it’s a foolproof method of creating a musical, because you get the audience involved. In regard to Beautiful, people know King and her music. They want to come see it. Being on the road, it’s obvious to see why these shows are so popular. I would like to see more of these musicals like this, especially with true stories. King is such an interesting woman, and it’s a story that’s worth sharing with the world. It would be cool to see an Adele musical in the future. Did you grow up listening to a lot of music? I did. My parents listened to The Eagles, Bob Dylan and Carole King. I grew up listening to her album Tapestry, and I didn’t realize that King wasn’t of my generation. I was also listening to Norah Jones and Sarah McLachlan. There were a lot of women songwriters who have influenced me in some way or another. Aside from singing, were you inspired to pick up any instruments? I do play the guitar, and I bring it out on the road with me. I dabble in writing my own stuff. However, now that I’m portraying a true lyricist, the process is a little intimidating when it comes time to pick up the pen.

Do you think younger millennials who see Beautiful will have a greater appreciation for the history of American music? As a Millennial, what struck me was that these musicians worked so hard. For every 15 songs they wrote, maybe only one got picked up. For every 30 songs they wrote, maybe one of them made the top 100. The work ethic and relentless drive is obvious in this show. To go back to King’s story, Weil and Mann are almost comic relief; she’s dealing with heartbreak and divorce, plus raising two kids on her own. Weil and Mann’s story is constantly on the rise. On top of it all, writing these chart-topping songs is difficult in itself. Where do you see your own career heading? I would love to have the opportunity to perform on Broadway. I definitely want to continue musical theater, maybe dabble in film and television. This national tour is pretty close, but I’d love to perform in New York City. At this point I like being a freelance artist. I can write my own stuff, and a lot of aspects to this field is DIY: If you want to tell a story, tell it. Anyone can use the internet to promote pretty much anything. SNT

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by R ob Brezsny

ARIES (March 21-April 19) After George

Washington was elected as the first president of the United States, he had to move from his home in Virginia to New York City, which at the time was the center of the American government. But there was a problem: He didn’t have enough cash on hand to pay for his long-distance relocation, so he was forced to scrape up a loan. Fortunately, he was resourceful and persistent in doing so. The money arrived in time for him to attend his own inauguration. I urge you to be like Washington in the coming weeks, Aries. Do whatever’s necessary to get the funds you need to finance your life’s next chapter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Fantasize about sipping pear nectar and listening to cello music and inhaling the aroma of musky amber and caressing velvet, cashmere and silk. Imagine how it would feel to be healed by inspiring memories, sweet awakenings, shimmering delights and delicious epiphanies. I expect experiences like these to be extra available in the coming weeks. But they won’t necessarily come to you freely and easily. You will have to expend effort to ensure they actually occur. So be alert for them. Seek them out. Track them down. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Contagion may work in your favor, but it could also undermine you. On the one hand, your enthusiasm is likely to ripple out and inspire people whose help you could use. On the other hand, you might be more sensitive than usual to the obnoxious vibes of manipulators. But now that I’ve revealed this useful tip, let’s hope you will be able to maximize the positive kind of contagion and neutralize the negative. Here’s one suggestion that may help: Visualize yourself to be surrounded by a golden force field that projects your good ideas far and wide even as it prevents the disagreeable stuff from leaking in. CANCER (June 21-July 22) A reader named

Kris X sent me a rebuke. “You’re not a guru or a shaman,” he sneered. “Your horoscopes are too filled with the slippery stench of poetry to be useful for spiritual seekers.” Here’s my response: “Thank you, sir! I don’t consider myself a guru or shaman, either. It’s not my mission to be an all-knowing authority who hands down foolproof advice. Rather, I’m an apprentice to the Muse of Curiosity. I like to wrestle with useful, beautiful paradoxes. My goal is to be a joyful rebel stirring up benevolent trouble, to be a cheerleader for the creative imagination.” So now I ask you, my fellow Cancerian: How do you avoid getting trapped in molds that people pressure you to fit inside? Are you skilled at being yourself even if that’s different from what’s expected of you? What are the soulful roles you choose to embody despite the fact that almost no one understands them? Now is a good time to meditate on these matters.

there will be helpers whose actions will nudge you -- sometimes inadvertently -- toward a higher level of professionalism. You will find it natural to wield more power and you will be more effective in offering your unique gifts. Now maybe you imagine you have already been performing at the peak of your ability, but I bet you will discover -- with a mix of alarm and excitement -- that you can become even more excellent. Be greater, Leo! Do better! Live stronger! (P.S.: As you ascend to this new level of competence, I advise you to be humbly aware of your weaknesses and immaturities. As your clout rises, you can’t afford to indulge in self-delusions.)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)I love to see you

Virgos flirt with the uncharted and the uncanny and the indescribable. I get thrills and chills whenever I watch your fine mind trying to make sense of the fabulous and the foreign and the unfathomable. What other sign can cozy up to exotic wonders and explore forbidden zones with as much no-nonsense pragmatism as you? If anyone can capture greased lightning in a bottle or get a hold of magic beans that actually work, you can.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) friend told me

about a trick used by his grandmother, a farmer. When her brooding hens stopped laying eggs, she would put them in pillowcases that she then hung from a clothesline in a stiff breeze. After the hens got blown around for a while, she returned them to their cozy digs. The experience didn’t hurt them, and she swore it put them back on track with their egg-laying. I’m not comfortable with this strategy. It’s too extreme for an animal-lover like myself. (And I’m glad I don’t have to deal with recalcitrant hens.) But maybe it’s an apt metaphor or poetic prod for your use right now. What could you do to stimulate your own creative production?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Now would be an excellent time to add deft new nuances to the ways you kiss, lick, hug, snuggle, caress and fondle. Is there a worthy adventurer who will help you experiment with these activities? If not, use your pillow, your own body, a realistic life-size robot, or your imagination. This exercise will be a good warm-up for your other assignment, which is to upgrade your intimacy skills. How might you do that? Hone and refine your abilities to get close to people. Listen deeper, collaborate stronger, compromise smarter, and give more. Do you have any other ideas? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) “If I had nine hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend the first six sharpening my ax,” said Abraham Lincoln, one of America’s most productive presidents. I know you Sagittarians are more renowned for your bold, improvisational actions than your careful planning and strategic preparation, but I think the coming weeks will be a time when you can and should adopt Lincoln’s approach. The readier you are, the freer you’ll be to apply your skills effectively and wield your power precisely.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)Zoologists

say that cannibalizing offspring is common in the animal kingdom, even among species that care tenderly for their young. So when critters eat their kids, it’s definitely “natural.” But I trust that in the coming weeks, you won’t devour your own children. Nor, I hope, will you engage in any behavior that metaphorically resembles such an act. I suspect that you may be at a low ebb in your relationship with some creation or handiwork or influence that you generated out of love. But please don’t abolish it, dissolve it or abandon it. Just the opposite, in fact: Intensify your efforts to nurture it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your astrolog-

ical house of communication will be the scene of substantial clamor and ruckus in the coming weeks. A bit of the hubbub will be flashy but empty. But much of it should be pretty interesting, and some of it will even be useful. To get the best possible results, be patient and objective rather than jumpy and reactive. Try to find the deep codes buried inside the mixed messages. Discern the hidden meanings lurking within the tall tales and reckless gossip. If you can deal calmly with the turbulent flow, you will give your social circle a valuable gift.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)The best oracular

advice you’ll get in the coming days probably won’t arise from your dreams or an astrological reading or a session with a psychic, but rather by way of seemingly random signals, like an overheard conversation or a sign on the side of a bus or a scrap of paper you find lying on the ground. And I bet the most useful relationship guidance you receive won’t be from an expert, but maybe from a blog you stumble upon or a barista at a café or one of your old journal entries. Be alert for other ways this theme is operating, as well. The usual sources may not have useful info about their specialties. Your assignment is to gather up accidental inspiration and unlikely teachings.
