The School District plans to shut down 26 kitchens in elementary and middle schools to close the $664 million budget gap. “Hey kids, if you’re hungry, you can have a knuckle sandwich,” says Gov. Corbett. “That’s right: I punch children now. In the fucking jaw, I punch them.” Survey names Philly the second-worst city for aggressive towing. OK, guess we gotta sit down with the PPA and the tow truck operators and read it to them. A man accidentally shoots himself in a Ruby Tuesday in Southwest Philly. There is some evidence he was depressed, however, as he was dining in a Ruby Tuesday. To close the $664 million budget gap, the School District plans to cut several small, relatively inexpensive services, like tutors for failing ninth-graders and a structured recess initiative. “But don’t worry, Philly, I have a plan for taking all those underperforming and overweight students off your hands,” says Gov. Corbett. “My science team tells me that it would take only 48 hours to have all the kids liquefied in acid and pumped into the ground for the purposes of extracting natural gas. Now, I know it’s a bit on the nose, literally sacrificing our future for our present, but I’m not a clever man. If I were, this backward-ass, self-defeating state never would’ve elected me. They’re scared of clever, you see.”

Lost in transLation? The Philadelphia School District is set to lay off nearly half its bilingual counselors. By Daniel Denvir


ast Friday, parents presented 400 signatures to the School Reform Commission demanding that Hua Chau, a bilingual counseling assistant (BCA) at H.A. Brown Elementary School, keep her job. Chau (who is actually trilingual, speaking Vietnamese, Cantonese and English) got a pink slip from the Philadelphia School District in June. “She helps with everything — early dismissals, sickness, translating papers,” says My Dung ly, a mother of three at the diverse Kensington-area school. Without her, “It would be chaos!” BCAs like Chau translate documents, liaise with families and effectively serve as intercultural social workers — which is why parents and immigrant advocates were worried indeed when, last month, the district announced the layoffs of 45 of 103 BCAs, along with 16 of 275 English as a Second language (ESOl) teachers (a spokesperson for the district says seven teachers will be rehired by charter schools). These layoffs, of course, were just one of many deep cost-cutting measures announced by school officials in the wake of the slashing of education funding by Gov. Tom Corbett as well as a massive shortfall in the Philadelphia School District’s own budgeting. The now $664-million budget gap has resulted in 1,228 teacher and

1,275 staff layoffs, with more expected. But immigrant parents and advocates say eliminating these positions will disproportionately hurt schools with large immigrant student bodies — like Brown Elementary, which, principal James Douglass told City Paper, could end up without a single Vietnamese-speaking person on staff. (The school is 18 percent Vietnamese speaking.) These cuts, say the advocates, came without warning. “The district has been completely opaque about what it was planning to do,” says Helen Gym, longtime schools activist and a founder of Parents united. And they’ve left immigrant parents worried about the coming school year. The night before last week’s School Reform Commission meeting, a few Brown Elementary parents and Chau met at My Dung ly’s rowhouse near Kensington and lehigh avenues to rehearse their statements for the next day’s meeting. The walls of ly’s house are covered with photos of weddings, babies, and her in-laws’ time as “boat people” in refugee camps spanning Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. She came to the u.S. through the Amerasian Homecoming Act, which allows the children of Vietnamese women and American soldiers to immigrate. Children playing outside on the stoop screamed in Vietnamese and English, running through the living room to pester their parents who were practicing what they’d say in support of Chau. For the parents and kids, Chau is a conduit to the rest of the sys-

AT-lARge, in PeRil Will state Rep. Dennis O’Brien’s middle finger to the GOP budget cost him in his race for City Council at-large? last week, O’Brien, who is from Philly, was one of only two state house republicans who didn’t vote for Gov. Tom Corbett’s budget. That’s pissed off some local right-wing voters. Until now, O’Brien looked like a shoo-in for a Council seat. In May’s primary, he was the No. 2 vote-getter among Republican at-large candidates, with David Oh being No. 1 — leading many to presume that those two would win out in November’s election. (City law stipulates that two of the seven Council at-large seats go to minority party members, which usually means republicans.) But John Featherman, who ran and lost by a slim margin in this year’s GOP mayoral primary against Karen Brown, says O’Brien’s vote changes the equation. “It’s going to weaken his candidacy, and may encourage me and other republicans to drop support for him,” Featherman says. “It’s absolutely not a Republican position to vote against Corbett’s budget.” O’Brien did not return requests for comment. But then again, O’Brien could use his vote against the budget — which critics say is especially damaging to Philly — to tout his independence from the party. Even Featherman admits, “This decision may help him with Democrats.” —holly Otterbein

The hAiR And now Who gets their hair braided in the middle of the night? lots of

people, says Dynamite Braids owner Marie Gethers, and for lots of reasons — not least among them that braiding sessions can take between six and eight hours. For some working women, there’s simply no other time to get it done. Then there’s the deep discounts Gethers offers late-night customers. And there are also more private reasons: Some ladies, she says, simply don’t want to get their hair done in front of a lot of people. A 24-hour braiding operation — 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be exact — was Gethers’ dream and longtime goal as she worked her way from housekeeper to front desk manager at the Marriott Hotel in Center City before coming up with a business plan for the always-open Dynamite Braids. “A lot [of my bosses] said, ‘This is a joke,’” Gethers notes. “this will never work.” But Gethers’ idea eventually came to fruition, and Dynamite Braids has been at its Mayfair location offering around-the-clock service for more than a year and a half. On a recent night, SEPTA bus driver Ricki Ezume, 55, told City Paper that when she saw a Dynamite ad in the paper, “i was in shock there was an overnight salon,” and decided to come by. The salon’s success, Gethers says, is the result of her almostfanatical dedication to her business. Dynamite has become her “home away from home,” she explains. She’s even put a bed in the basement for naps during long shifts — “I don’t have a life outside this company!” she proclaims cheerfully. Despite the long hours, Gethers says she’s dedicated to the 24hour concept. “i don’t think i could go back at this point. I’ve spoiled the public.”

O’Brien looked like a shoo-in.

Riddle Me This ➤ “RegaRding the 100 savage hoodlums

causing mayhem on Broad St, the Germantown bar shooting and man found dead in a car in Nicetown — what did all 3 incidents have in common?” Such was the question, word for word, posed via (anonymous) email to your own Man Overboard! following last week’s column about a spate of violence across the city that included 33 shootings and a youth mob that left innocent people hospitalized. And what answer, to this sphinx-like puzzle, did the (anonymous) riddler seek? Gee, I don’t know … that they all involved African-Americans, maybe? How did I guess? Simple: Despite the (anonymous) author’s implication that only he/she is shrewd, noble and brave enough to have connected the racial dots, in fact I get virtually the same (anonymous) email, phone message or online comment most every time something I write happens to touch on crime and/or African-Americans. Each builds to the same conclusion: that I, or “The Media,” or “My People” — in the case of those who understandably assume by my name that I’m black — are cowering from “The Truth.” And what is “The Truth”? These (anonymous) scholars never quite seem to spell out their implications. Instead, they insinuate, insinuate, insinuate that their questions have but one answer — and they’re the only ones brave enough to say so. I say they’re the only ones thick enough and blinded enough by their own prejudice to absurdly believe that Philly’s problems trace to a single race, economic class, or immigration status. There’s plenty of reason to talk about race right now. The “flash mobs” do consist almost entirely of black teenagers (also black: several women who risked injury to assist the victims of that mob). The city’s shootings and killings are concentrated in black and Hispanic neighborhoods — hardly news to the people who live there, the disproportionate victims of that violence. Are there problems within Philly’s black communities? Yes.There are problems in its white, Hispanic and Asian communities, as well. The city has a lot of problems. Violence is one of them. Hatred — and the propensity to treat fellow residents as less than human, whether by raging youth or raging comment — is another. But instead of engaging, these message-writers spew a conversation that begins and ends in one place. In anticipation of another round of rhetorical questions, Man Overboard! will pose one more his own: What do you call someone who won’t put a name behind his or her own words?  Isaiah Thompson thinks we should talk. Write him at

tem â&#x20AC;&#x201D; someone who can help guide them through the bureaucracy and help make their non-English voices heard in an English-speaking system. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crucial to the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; academic success, they say, but also their safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the Asian kids have been bullied,â&#x20AC;? said Chau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am there to protect them. A lot of the parents donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the rules, and they will quietly go away or just let it go.â&#x20AC;? large in the minds of these parents is the December 2009 incident at South Philadelphia High in which Asian students were attacked by a group of mostly African-American students. Conflicts between immigrant and non-immigrant students have also been reported at Bok, Fels and Furness high schools, and a March 2011 report from the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations faulted the district for â&#x20AC;&#x153;policies [that] fail to provide a clear and consistent framework for preventing and resolving intergroup conflicts,â&#x20AC;? finding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;inadequate language access â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a legal right â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is exacerbating the situation.â&#x20AC;? The following day, Chau ran prayer beads through her left hand as parents stood up and spoke to the School Reform Commission members, asking for Chauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reinstatment. Schools Superintendent Arlene Ackerman, seated behind a desk with the Commission members, responded directly, telling them that it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfair to talk aboutâ&#x20AC;? their schools â&#x20AC;&#x153;in isolation,â&#x20AC;? and that she was committed to addressing bilingual programs â&#x20AC;&#x153;in an equitable manner for everyone in the district.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bilingual assistants,â&#x20AC;? she added, sitting behind a nameplate recognizing her doctorate in education, â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have to have a degree.â&#x20AC;? It was a tense moment in an already-tense relationship between Ackerman and immigrant advocates dating back to the crisis at South Philly High. (They believe Ackerman inflamed racial divisions when she blamed the violence on an attack on an African-American student that was never later substantiated.) Those divisions remain strained. When a latina woman testified at Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearing that she wanted her children to â&#x20AC;&#x153;do better,â&#x20AC;? an African-American woman in the audience muttered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better than anybody else?â&#x20AC;? Degree or no, the bilingual counselorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; futures may wind up being decided in a courtroom: The BCA positions were originally created as part of the settlement of a 1985 lawsuit that required schools to provide adequate translation services. Following the South Philadelphia High incident, the U.S. Department of Justiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Civil Rights Division found that the district was â&#x20AC;&#x153;deliberately indifferent to known instances of severe and pervasive student-on-student harassment of Asian students,â&#x20AC;? prompting the district to sign a consent decree that, among other things, required adequate interpretation services for students and families involved in violent or disciplinary incidents at South Philly High. The district also told the Justice Department that it would provide

additional interpretation training to all BCAs, which it did. lucy Feria, deputy chief for the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Multilingual Programs, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe we will be in compliance with both of the orders.â&#x20AC;? After the hearing, Karren Dunkley, chief deputy of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of Parent, Family, Community Engagement and Faith-Based Partnerships, told CP that immigrant groups have misconstrued the cuts: The district promises that Brown will have a Vietnamese speaker on staff next year and that the net loss of bilingual support staff system-wide will be partially offset by the creation of 27 new positions called School Improvement Support liaisons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you take a school like Southwark that is predominantly Spanish-speaking, they will receive a full-time Spanish

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will quietly go away or just let it go.â&#x20AC;? liaison, supplemented with Burmese, Chinese, Indonesian and Karen BCAs,â&#x20AC;? Dunkley says. And while parents may feel attached to particular people who are losing jobs, Dunkley says, the seniority rules of union contracts dictate who gets laid off first. Whether the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan really fills in the gaps created by these layoffs remains to be seen. Advocates say they have been neither consulted nor informed of the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new plans for non-English-speaking children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question,â&#x20AC;? says len Rieser, executive director of the Education law Center, the organization behind the 1985 lawsuit resulting in the BCA positions, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is now that this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set of staffing arrangements is getting drastically changed, will they be able to provide the services that families need and that are required?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they even know the answer to that right now.â&#x20AC;?

glass ceiling? Another city office is accused of sexist employment practices. By Holly Otterbein


n 2009, the Philadelphia Prisons System was on the lookout for a new deputy commissioner, the second-highest ranking official in that department, and Harriet Spencer believed she was the woman for the job. Spencer, who is African-American, has a bachelor’s degree, a master’s in human services and a law degree from Temple. She had more than 30 years of experience in city prisons, serving in every position from corrections officer to lieutenant to her current job as executive director of the Office of Special Events/commissioner’s special assistant. Under Mayor John Street, she even ascended to the head of the city’s Office for the Reentry of Ex-Offenders. But Spencer didn’t get the job — instead, it went to Clyde Gainey, a man (also African-American) who, Spencer now says, has no degree and lacks other fundamental requirements of the job. So it occurred to Spencer: Maybe she wasn’t the right woman for the job simply because she is just that — a woman, and the city was looking for the right man for the job. This February, Spencer filed a lawsuit against the city claiming that she is a victim of gender discrimination. This lawsuit, which hasn’t been reported until now, marks the second time in the past year that a former high-ranking official has sued the city for gender discrimination. As reported in the Daily News last month, Sgt. Kimberly Byrd — who was once the top aide to former Police Commissioner Sylvester Johnson — filed a lawsuit in July 2010 claiming that she was a victim of gender dis-

crimination under current Commissioner Charles Ramsey. According to the picture laid out in Spencer’s lawsuit, sexism is alive and well within the Prisons System under Commissioner louis Giorla. And even if a court determines that she was not discriminated against due to her gender, her suit still raises questions about whether and why prison leaders seem to be rolling back reforms meant to professionalize the department. In her lawsuit, Spencer lays out a few key pieces of evidence to support her claim. She claims, for instance, that the city didn’t follow its own rules while hiring Gainey. According to the Prisons System’s documents, the “minimum acceptable training and experience” for a deputy commissioner is a graduate degree in a relevant field, or a bachelor’s degree accompanied by workplace experience. But Gainey, she says, lacks a degree of any kind. When asked to confirm or deny this, the Prisons System spokesperson, Gainey and the city’s law Department all declined comment. But in Gainey’s biography on the Prisons System website, it notes that he has “attended” St. Augustine’s College and Philadelphia Community College, but doesn’t say whether he ever obtained a degree — unlike other prisons employees, whose bios clearly spell this out. Representatives at St. Augustine’s confirmed that Gainey did not receive a degree; Philadelphia Community College wouldn’t release the information. Spencer also points out that the Prisons System never formally announced the opening of the deputy commissioner position, though she made Giorla aware of her interest. In its legal pleadings, the city admits that it never publicized the job, but makes the argument that

The city did not follow its own rules.

[ the naked city ]

it wasn’t a “civil service” position. Speaking through her lawyer, larry Woehrle, Spencer says that she should have at least been allowed to apply for the job. Adds Woehrle, “Ms. Spencer not only has a comprehensive knowledge of the Philadelphia Prisons System based on her assent through the correctional ranks, but she has three academic degrees — including a law degree — which bear directly on the position she was seeking. She was absolutely the best qualified person for the position.” As evidence, Spencer’s lawsuit claims that former Prisons Commissioner Thomas Costello “initiated Spencer’s promotion to the position of deputy commissioner based on her outstanding performance record, years of experience and educational background” — but was never able to complete it because he retired shortly thereafter. (City Paper was unable to reach Costello for comment.) Except for the scant information provided in its pleadings, the city’s side of the story is relatively unknown — and will likely remain so until October, when the case is set to go to trial.

Reforms required that deputy commissioners have graduate degrees. Jennifer Burns says, “The city will not comment on active litigation.” The Prisons System spokesperson made a similar statement, as did Gainey. Further complicating this case is the fact that Spencer also filed suit against former Prisons Commissioner leon King in 2006 — also for gender discrimination — when he didn’t promote her to deputy commissioner after Costello left. But what exactly became of the case isn’t clear. In 2007, the city entered into a confidential settlement with Spencer. Reached over the phone, King says that Spencer was not a victim of sexism under his watch, and points out that he later promoted another AfricanAmerican woman to the position of deputy commissioner. He concedes that Costello was “really pushing for [Spencer],” but says he didn’t promote her because the other deputy commissioners did not believe she was a good fit, and he “didn’t want to cause too much drama.” King won’t issue an opinion on whether Spencer is being discriminated against now, but says he thinks Giorla should have given her a shot. He’s also upset that Gainey allegedly lacks a degree. King says that

he and Costello worked hard to “professionalize the prisons” in the wake of Harris v. Reeves, a federal lawsuit filed against the city in the early 1980s for its overcrowded prisons, which resulted in several reforms — including a written requirement that deputy commissioners have graduate degrees, and wardens have bachelor’s degrees. King says that the Prisons System’s knotty problems can’t be mended without educated people at the reins; he also argues these requirements can help squash the perception that the department is an “old boy’s network.” “The Prisons System is a complex, multimillion-dollar corporation,” says King, adding that in regards to the powerful deputy commissioner position, “Where else in America can someone without a degree be in charge of hundreds of correctional officers, a $227 million budget, mental health services, capital projects, you name it?” (

pense by not cueing us where to look, share something with The Strangers and Paranormal Activity 2, Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insistence on fleshing out his characters, even at the (temporary) expense of tightening the screws, is very much his own. The scene where Claire steps out to grab coffee from an over-sharing diner waitress (Tiny Furnitureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lena Dunham) has nothing to do with ghosts or the supernatural, but it makes Claire more than a pawn proceeding toward a foreordained death,

Final Destination-style. Ditto Claireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talks with Leanne Reese-Jones (Kelly McGillis), a former TV star turned crystal-toting New Age healer; their back-and-forth reveals more about Claireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lingering insecurities than Leanneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vague pronouncements do about the innâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incorporeal guests. As in The House of the Devil, West builds up more than he can pay off. Once they come out from under the bed, the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monsters turn out not to be so scary after all. But perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing the movie slacks off at the end. Otherwise the audience would be up all night. (

Unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a die-hard horror fan, you probably havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard of Ti West, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a matter of time. Over the last six years, the Wilmington, Del., native has been gnawing at the boundaries of the genre, setting out in a different direction with five features: The Roost is a rural siege thriller in which vampire bats attack a group of wayward travelers who take shelter in an abandoned barn; Trigger Man is an art-horror, rough-hewn account of hunting buddies who become the target of an unseen sniper. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The House of the Devil was a deliberate throwback to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Satanic panicâ&#x20AC;? (and goofy hairstyles) of the 1980s, with an unsuspecting baby sitter drawn into the plans of a demonic cabal. It also featured one of the greatest deaths in recent memory, which even now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m loath to spoil. Essentially a chamber piece in which two desk clerks ride out the last weekend in a mammoth New England hotel, The Innkeepers is Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most assured film yet, a slow-burning creeper that pays off in spades. With only a handful of guests and one of the Yankee Pedlarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s floors already stripped bare, pixie-cut Claire (Sara Paxton) and hipster-goof Luke (Pat Healy) have ample time to play amateur ghost hunters, seeking out the spirit of a suicidal woman whose body was hidden in the basement by the innâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press-shy owners. It takes a while for even these bare facts to emerge, and longer still before the spiritâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence is more than a faint whisper on the pairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound recorder. But West, unlike most whammy-driven horror filmmakers, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to take his time, building character and mood before pulling back the curtain. As if to placate, or razz, those expecting early jolts, West front-loads the movie with jump scares. Luke demonstrates one early on, planting Claire in front of his laptop to watch a moody, black-and-white clip of a solitary rocking chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watch closely,â&#x20AC;? he tells her, as she strains to see evidence of the paranormal, perhaps a hint of movement or a wisp of white. The camera pushes in and the sound goes quiet as

we hold our breath, and then WHAM! a pale-faced child jumps, snarling, at the lens, and the audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collective heartbeat doubles. If that dark-eyed kid resembles the exsanguinated J-horror tots who were all the rage a few years back, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no accident. West is acutely aware of the way his chosen genre is trending, and just as determined to head in the opposite direction. If the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pregnant wide shots, which crank up the sus-

Persian-American Maryam Keshavarz makes her feature debut with the story of two young Tehranian women struggling against social norms. As it often does, teenage rebellion bleeds into (counter-)revolution; the two go from hanging out at illegal parties to helping a friend dub Milk into Farsi. Along the way, their friendship starts to turn passionate, but an elder brother, once a drug addict and now a member of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;morality police,â&#x20AC;? develops an unhealthy obsession with their relationship, using clandestine cameras to spy on them. Apart from some metaplay with those multiple screens, Keshavarzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solid, unfussy craftsmanship lets the story come to the fore, making intriguing if rarely thrilling results. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sam Adams (7/15, 7 p.m., RE)

A spontaneous, virulent protest arose, however, forcing the marchers to find sanctuary in a church and sparking a polarizing debate involving church, state and human rights (including a pair of interfering evangelicals from the good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; U.S. of A.). â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Shaun Brady (7/17, 12:15 p.m., RB) IN A GLASS CAGE | B+

➤ Summer never truly starts until The

Roots leave the Welcome America stage and QFest hits the streets for a gay old time. So a word from mouthpiece Thom Cardwell regarding July 8-18’s Q/Danger After Dark film fest: “In terms of talent, I believe that this year breaks our own record with more than 100 filmmakers, actors, producers, editors, screenwriters, distributors, from as close as New Jersey and New York City and as far away as Paris and Hong Kong.” One of those visitors is Sean Paul Lockhart, who gets his Rising Star Award preceding the shorts program at the Ritz East July 8. “Forget that Lockhart began his career in the gay adult industry and pay attention to his acting ability in two films screened at QFest 2011, Judas Kiss and I Was a Teenage Werebear,” says Caldwell, who mentions that Lockhart also appeared in Milk and The Big Gay Musical. ➤ Shank’s moved from my block two years ago, and they took their tripe with them to 15th Street off Sansom. No hard feelings. Except now I hear they’re looking for more space (the new joint is tiny, less than 1,000 square feet) and are closing in a few weeks. Why close though if all you’re looking for is more room? Hmm. ➤ Jazz-bo bassist Alex Claffy leads his post-bop group through the paces at Chris’ Jazz Café July 8. Speaking of jazz, Four Corners’ Avram Hornik and Mark Fichera took over Ortlieb’s Jazzhaus and will reopen the hallowed NoLibs hall as soon as the Pete Souders-held liquor license transfers. ➤ Endemol Productions out of Hoboken is getting ready for its Jerseylicious spinoff with co-star Alexa Prisco. The equally ’licious program, Glam Fairy, is currently looking for makeover mopes willing to be shown on the Style Network. We’re hearing first episodes might leak in August. ➤ Luca Sena, John Poulos and Dominic Episcopo’s “Snow White” Revolution House on Second and Market pre-popped its top for dinner before July’s First Friday and will hold its official opening party July 13. ➤ Author/provocateur CAConrad was just awarded a $60,000 Pew grant for poetry and is busting out all over with the privilege. “I was nominated, then I applied, and then I won which was great because I was on the verge of being evicted,” laughs Conrad. What’s he going to do with that wad? “Live.

PLAY ON, PLAYER: Jacqueline Goldfinger’s new Slip/Shot will première at Flashpoint Theatre Co. next spring.

Hit Me WitH Your Best sHot PlayPenn gives local playwrights the tools to build (and rebuild). By Mark Cofta


ew-play development, says Philadelphia playwright Jacqueline Goldfinger, “is one of those crazy things, with a million permutations.” The trick, she explains, is finding what works. “For me, having everyone in the room not focused on anything else but my play is terrific.” PlayPenn, actor-director Paul Meshejian’s annual new-play conference, suits Goldfinger perfectly. Her play Slip/Shot is one of six receiving a professional director, dramaturg and cast; rehearsals of the works-in-progress begin July 8, and the whole process culminates in free public script-in-hand performances a couple of weeks later. The Tallahassee, Fla., native, who settled here with her husband three years ago, says the writing of Slip/Shot started in an InterAct Theatre Co. playwriting forum organized by local director Rebecca Wright. The play — about an accidental shooting and how it affects the families of both victim and perpetrator — soon took on a life of its own: It was showcased in New york’s National Newborn Festival, then received a reading last summer at actor Benjamin lloyd’s White Pines Productions at Elkins Estate. That’s where Ed Sobel, the Arden Theatre Co. associate artistic direc-

tor who’ll take over the directing reins for its PlayPenn reading, came aboard. On June 2, Slip/Shot was read in New york City as a finalist in Reverie Productions’ eighth annual Next Generation Playwriting Contest. Most importantly, Slip/Shot’s première is already scheduled: Philadelphia’s Flashpoint Theatre Co. will produce it in April/May 2012, and Wright will direct. “It’s wonderful to develop this play in my community, in my home, and then to première it here, too,” says Goldfinger, who’s become a fixture in Philadelphia theater through work with a variety of companies as well as teaching playwriting at the university of the Arts. “A lot of playwrights, directors, designers and actors live out of a suitcase,” she says. “One of the reasons I love living here is that I can go from first draft to opening right here.” She’s done it before, with Azuka Theatre’s acclaimed production of the terrible girls in March. “We worked with the same actors in the development process, so they all came in on the same page, knowing what we’ve tried, what worked and what didn’t, and all heading toward the same focus,” Goldfinger says. “you need a place where you feel safe to experiment, to throw things up against the wall and be really bad sometimes.” PlayPenn affords that opportunity with a relatively lengthy 29 hours of rehearsal and rewriting over two weeks (some full productions don’t rehearse that long) and actors whom Goldfinger understandably gush about: terrible girls star Amanda Schoonover

“You need a place where you feel safe to experiment.”

LANGUAGE BARRIER: This moronically quirky film, about nut-house escapees who drive a stolen car to Italy with a jar of ashes, doesn’t win palatability points for being in German.

Earth and the narrator of Glen Duncan’s The Last Werewolf (Knopf, July 12), wants to make sure you have the correct impression of his species. He’s anxious to debunk all of the incorrect notions of lycanthropy left over from myth and legend and double-feature moviemaking, to the point of becoming a bit of a tic. Considering his status as an evolutionary dead end, though, his anxiety is understandable. After all, as one minor character points out, werewolves are a touch outdated: “In ages past the beast in man was hidden in the dark, disavowed. The transparency of modern history makes that impossible: We’ve seen ourselves in the concentration camps, the gulags, the jungles, the killing fields … the beast is redundant. It’s been us all along.” In the world where Jacob Marlowe is imaginary, werewolves are doing better than ever; more baby boys for the past two years have been given the same name as a fictional werewolf than any other name, and Duncan (with 2002’s I Lucifer) already belongs to the ranks of authors highbrow (Justin Cronin, vampires) and protean (self-publishing success Amanda Hocking, trolls) who have experimented with the otherworldly. But Duncan’s best work — like the excellent A Day and a Night and a Day — comes out of the tradition of the Novel of Ideas, rather than from genre fiction. Because he’s not a native to genre writing or to horror specifically, it’s no surprise that Duncan tries to reinvent the werewolf book through Jacob’s witty, self-aware narration.What’s surprising is how much more engaging and enjoyable Jacob becomes once the plot forces him into the comfortable, conventional role of hunted monster, rather than languid philosophical wit. That Werewolf is more successful when it becomes more conventional is an issue of balance. Rather than blow up the form and start over — like Toby Barlow did in the incredible blank-verse werewolf story Sharp Teeth — Jacob’s voice gives a new gloss to an old form.

tic dialogue gets a pass from viewers who’d balk if it were spoken in their native tongue. But it turns out that It’s Kind of a Funny Story’s moronically quirky take on mental illness is no more palatable when it’s in subtitled German. Florian David Fitz plays Vincent, a politician’s son with Tourette’s syndrome who is institutionalized after his mother’s death. First, however, there’s a clunker scene where Vincent disrupts his mother’s funeral by shouting obscenities to horrified onlookers who seem altogether unaware of his condition. Vincent’s nut-house roomie is an obsessive compulsive (Johannes Allmayer) fond of classical music and miniature models — in short, an off-the-shelf caricature betraying a lack of both imagination and research. Karin Thaler’s anorexic is no better developed, serving mainly as love interest and sounding board, especially once the makeshift trio hits the road in a doctor’s stolen car. As Vincent and co. make their way to Italy with an aim of scattering his mother’s ashes, his dad and psychiatrist (Katharina Müller-Elmau) follow suit, finding even less in common than the people they’re pursuing. Predictably, outer shells soften and tentative accords are reached over the long haul, but Fitz’s screenplay (his first) provides only rapprochement by fiat: The characters reconcile because the script, and the genre, demand it. There’s hugging and learning, but little insight or memorable detail, and the showboat role Fitz has written himself doesn’t do him any favors, either. —Sam Adams

The creepy vintage photographs scattered throughout Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Quirk, June 7) provide a similar kind of gloss. Taken with its Gothic tone, and its teenage protagonist out to find the truth behind his dead grandfather’s outlandish stories, the illustrations all but assure that the book will be read as, and marketed as, a YA novel. That’s not the worst thing. Miss Peregrine is a beautifully produced book, and there’s an excellent chance that it’ll get a broader readership out of a YA marketing plan than as an oddball, hard-to-categorize literary novel. And even if the YA label no longer excuses sketchy character development, or the way certain scenes sometimes expose their source photographs as writing prompts, Riggs still loads a sure-footed boy’s-book adventure with clear, nuanced negotiation of metaphors and monsters, especially as our hero understands first that his grandfather’s fairy tales are stand-ins for his Holocaust childhood, and then, more frighteningly, that they might not be fictions at all. Ultimately, it’s that ability to provoke a gut reaction that determines the success of something like Miss Peregrine or David Nickle’s historical chiller Eutopia (ChiZine, April 15). If smart, innovative horror is nice, it still has to strike at the base of the skull. That’s a dumb thrill, not in the sense that it’s cheap or easy to produce, but rather in that the stories that provide the least complicated route to the pit of the stomach are the

[ arts & entertainment ]

ones that work the best. Intellectual weight and artistic polish are important things, but not necessary conditions; they’re window dressing, a strategy to make you feel better about that adolescent kick of fear. Nickle does his share of window dressing. Eutopia takes place in a Western model frontier town in 1911 dedicated to eugenic idealism, and pulls together some reasonably spooky historical ideas about race and human perfectibility. As much as Nickle incorporates a lot of interesting, smart background stuff, he remains squarely in the land of things that go bump in the night. Eutopia hails less from the territory of Stephen King, sticking more to the neighborhood of some of those early-’70s sinister-village stories, like Thomas Tryon’s Harvest Home, or the good parts of The Wicker Man. Even if Nickle leaves some clumsy dialogue and bald-faced exposition in the foreground, the concoction of history, science, religion and prejudice that fuels his novel doesn’t overwhelm its dumb thrills. Nickle knows that horror needs to strike at nerve endings and not get too cerebral; Eutopia does that by getting out of its own way. (

“Playwrights compete with all the plays ever written — by people living and dead.” plus James Ijames, Evan Jonigkeit, Aubie Merrylees, Jasmine St. Clair, Cathy Simpson and Bill Zielinski. Allowed one designer in a discipline of her choice — whatever’s most important to the play’s development — Goldfinger picked sound designer Rob Kaplowitz. PlayPenn’s development process starts with setting goals. “You have to know what the strengths and weaknesses are, going into rehearsals,” Goldfinger explains. “It’s hard to make myself set goals, though, because I can get wishy-washy.” Case in point: “One of my challenges as a thirtysomething woman is writing characters both significantly younger than me and older than me,” she says. “I get the younger, I think, but I’m not sure about the older, like a 60-year-old woman. I’m not sure I have her voice yet, or her emotional arc.” In PlayPenn’s seven seasons, Meshejian reports, they’ve helped develop 42 plays, 26 of which have received 77 productions across the country and the world. PlayPenn 2011 also features American Wee-Pie by Lisa Dillman, Nerine by Brian Quirk, A Man, a Wife and His Hat by Lauren Yee, Another Girl by John Yearley, and Stefanie Zadravec’s The

Electric Baby, employing a total of 43 actors as well as directors, dramaturgs and designers for each play. Goldfinger’s work continues here at home with Hershel & the Hanukkah Goblins, an adaptation commissioned by Gas & Electric Arts, in December, and her adaptation of Little Women at the University of the Arts next May, as well as development of another new work, Skin & Bone, with Azuka. “Local playwrights get produced less than local actors and directors work,” Goldfinger admits, “but playwrights compete with all the plays ever written, by people living and dead. Theaters can’t always import famous directors or actors, but they can always choose a famous play” instead of a new one. PlayPenn and Jacqueline Goldfinger hope to change that.

 coNtiNuiNg bad teacHer|BA lowbrow, lowballing comedy whose characters are dead from the neck up, Bad Teacher is lazily written and indifferently directed, but it’s still a fitfully engaging showcase for a handful of razor-sharp comic talents. As an unrepentant gold digger saving up for a pair of fake tits, Cameron Diaz flaunts her lack of redeeming qualities, showing her seventh-grade students Dangerous Minds while she sleeps off a hangover at her desk. The movie is full of discarded plot threads and half-sketched characters, which is actually more offensive than its scattering of scatalogical jokes, but you’d have to have a strong will to resist the sight of Cameron Diaz jamming a corn dog into the mouth of a mustard bottle and tearing off a blissfully unhealthy bite. —Sam Adams

While his clients extol his wisdom, Brannaman sometimes chastises them for not being self-aware, as he’s been forced to be. When he scolds a woman for her carelessness with her horses, the film makes clear his stakes: He’s finding and saving victims. In so doing, he’s saving himself. —Cindy Fuchs (Ritz Five)

of course, chaos ensues. Carla Gugino, Angela Lansbury and the rest of the cast are effective, and despite an overdose of penguin poop jokes, the script is remarkably witty. Just not quite witty enough to warrant seeing without kids in tow. —Matt Cantor

Andrew Rossi spent a year inside The New York Times and emerged with a sporadically engaging but largely flaccid portrait of journalism done right. Rossi’s decision to focus on the Times’ media desk, particularly the slobby, scratchy-voiced and irresistible reporter David Carr, should put the film in the thick of the changes roiling the industry, but instead he opts for the far less enlightening tack of showering hosannas on the paper’s coverage, which is a little like pointing out that, hey, the Yankees are a pretty good team. —S.A.

Cybertron spaceship that crash-landed on the lunar surface. The mechanized war that ensues would forgive all the preceding idiocy if they actually focused on the Transformers kicking the crap out of each other for once, but vast expanses of this 155-minute supposed shock-and-awe fest are instead dedicated to pointless plot “development” and Michael Bay’s signature “funny ’cause they’re minorities!” bit characters. —D.L.

Terrence Malick’s phenomenal, phenomenological The Tree of Life tells the story of Jack, whose father (Brad Pitt) drills his three sons ceaselessly on his version of proper behavior. His wife (Jessica Chastain) is a less defined presence, powerfully emotive but hazily sketched. The opening narration lays out a struggle between the principles of grace (formative, forgiving, divine) and nature (earthly, destructive), attributes which sync loosely with the parents themselves. Malick’s reach extends far beyond the confines of time and place, to the edges of the universe and the dawn of life. There hasn’t been anything like The Tree of Life in years, and until Malick makes another movie, there won’t be. —S.A. (Ritz Five)

 PJAM The news cycle has let Japan’s recent tragedies fall off the front page, but Cinedelphia blogger Eric Bresler and a group of fellow Japanophiles haven’t forgotten. They’ve organized the Philadelphia Japan Arts Matsuri (PJAM)

— a term for a communitybased cultural festival — to benefit disaster-relief efforts. But the schedule will be far from a downer, offering three days of film and music. The cinematic lineup includes the cartoonishly manic Yakuza Weapon and Takashi Miike’s film-of-the-week, a sure-to-beoutrageous anime adaptation called Ninja Kids, but it isn’t all over-the-top insanity. Recent Sundance hit Abraxas, a lowkey drama about a punk rocker turned monk unwilling to give up his noise-making, will make its Philly debut, as will the slacker comedy 8,000 Miles and its sequel, both featuring a group of would-be rappers. A hip-hop concert will follow on Friday night, with a batch of local chiptune artists creating musical instruments out of those Japanese game systems we all grew up on. —Shaun Brady Thu.-Sat., July 7-9, Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St., 215-5699700,

 Penrose If there can be such a thing as a pop-blues trio, or a blues-pop trio, the gentlemen of Penrose have figured it out. That’s not to say the Philly-born brothers Dan, Tom and Pat Murphy don’t have the ages-old blues root in their bones or that their blood isn’t boiling over with three-chord-blues angst. The mournful Delta swampiness of Hooker and Waters, the psychedelic edge of Cream, the skuzzy modern primitivism of Black Keys all exist within Penrose’s crusty aesthetic. But whether you’ve caught them in a live setting or consider yourself a fan of their debut CD, late-2010’s Devil’s Grip, you know their melodies are sharp, their hooks are contagious and that no bros since Hanson are cuter. That’s blues-pop, y’all. They’ll start their first tour of the States at Kung Fu Necktie this week and will be gone for more than a month. Miss this

 Kid Cudi I know he got the Grammy nom, and did some guest work with Kanye, Jay-Z and MGMT, but is the scrawny-stylish Cleveland expat MC really big enough to fill the Mann? Damn. I remember when he had to settle for packing the side tent at the Roots Picnic a couple years back. Good for him. The Kid’s got more than the usual bag of sweet beats and breath control; he can also, you know, sing. And his high-diving, self-psychologizing lyrics make him one of the deepest and most interest-

 no regrets: A PiAf AffAir The bittersweet life and times of famed French singer Edith Piaf has inspired a not-sotraditional performance by PIFA favorites the Bearded ladies Cabaret. In No Regrets: A Piaf Affair, a dragged-out John Jarboe (Back in the Army) takes on some of the little Sparrow’s most iconic tunes, including “la Vie En Rose” and “Non Je Ne Regrette Rien.” The show will also feature an explosion of can-can dancers (yes, some with stubble), confetti cannons and a cardboard tour of Paris that Jarboe says tows the line between virtuosity and something homemade.

 bill Callahan Inveterate maverick troubadour Bill Callahan has been peddling his brand of insular, poetically inscrutable ruminations for two decades now

threatens to gush from the speakers, so you can only imagine how intense her live shows must get. A cousin of legendary singer-guitarist Ali Farka Toure, Arby blends the traditional and the modern, incorporating local rhythms and instruments with Western rock influences, generating a particularly urgent brand of African funk-rock. Many of her lyrics protest the plight of women in traditional societies, including the ordeal of female circumcision, but even if you don’t understand the words, her passion and vitality grab you by the throat and make her argument.

This weekend the Art After 5 crowd at the Philadelphia Museum of Art will discover what the privileged children of Manhattan already know: Clarinetist/saxophonist/composer Oran Etkin is a whiz at world music and post-Bop jazz. The Manu Dibango of the Upper East Side runs a music education program called Timbalooloo, which counts among its student bodies the offspring of Harvey Keitel, Naomi Watts, Liev Schreiber and Ken Burns. But from the sound of his recordings Wake Up Clarinet! and Kelenia, Etkin is more than just a cool teacher. The Israeliborn woodwind master has gigged with the diverse likes of Wyclef Jean, Mike Stern and Toumani Diabaté. That adaptability probably comes from Etkin’s dense but lilting tone with arrangements and rhythms concentrating on the melodies of Mali, New Orleans, the Sudan, downtown New York City and traditional Jewish music. If it’s good enough for the Bad Lieutenant’s kids, it’s good enough for you punks.

— first as Smog, for nearly 15 years, and under his birth name for the past five or so — with unflagging productivity, traversing from rudimentary lo-fi to orchestral lushness to delicately spare acoustic folk. And he’s hit a great patch lately. After 2009’s relatively lavish Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle and last year’s Australian live document Rough Travel for a Rare Thing, Apocalypse (Drag City), he returns to the dusty trails of his homeland for some skewed observations on America’s myths and foibles. “One thing about this wild, wild country,” he muses with jaunty dourness. “It takes a strong, strong/ It breaks a strong strong mind.” No doubting Callahan’s got that.

with some wine game in their repertoires, do not like to be told what to drink. But what about when it’s branded as a playful-yet-didactic nudge in an unforeseen direction? That’s what the Summer of Riesling (SoR) — a nationwide promotion encouraging drinkers to embrace the oft-misunderstood Teutonic grape — is all about. The SoR originates at the New York wine bar Terroir, where in 2008, owner Paul Grieco decided to overhaul the white portion of his by-the-glass list to feature only Rieslings, commonly known for being (1) German and (2) extremely sweet. While the grape does call Germany’s Rhine region home (the country still lays claims to more than half the world’s Riesling vines), it has long been cultivated worldwide, from New Zealand and South Africa to Oregon and upstate New York. As far as taste goes: Riesling is complex by virtue and extremely sensitive to the region in which it’s grown, translating to great diversity waiting to be uncorked within the varietal. “Riesling has the mesmerizing power to be both one thing and many things at once, in that the grape illuminates the quality of its terroir in full Technicolor while still tasting undeniably like Riesling,” says Suzanne Winter, who oversees SoR programming on a national level. Sweet or not, one characteristic true of Riesling is its unusually high level of acidity. This appeals to Jill Weber of Jet Wine Bar, a local SoR venue where, like all participating locations, one can find three Rieslings by the glass throughout the summer. “The wines have a lot of sugar, and because of that they have a lot of acidity, which translates to [Riesling] being a lot more refreshing than other wines,” says Weber, who’s also working on a series of Rieslingbased events. “No matter what [flavors] you might taste, you get this wonderful wash of acidity.” Riesling, which Jon Myerow characterizes as “an underappreciated grape” (his Tria and Biba locations are SoR participants), also has a latent reputation as a powerful pairing wine. “It has such a wide range,” says Tria cheese director Sean Faeth, who’s sticking a Riesling-friendly Abbaye de Tamié on Tria’s “Sunday School” menu this weekend. “It can be crisp and mellow or it can be sweet and rich, but it always has a great food backbone.” There are a total of 10 Philly-area bars and restaurants taking up the torch for the SoR, which runs through Sept. 22.

[ review ]

License to tiLL Backed by Starr green, Aimee Olexy presents the enchanting, exacting Talula’s Garden. By Adam Erace

talula’s Garden | 210 W. Washington Square, 215-592-7787, Dinner Sun.-Thu., 5-10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 5-11 p.m. Appetizers, $9-$16; entrées, $25-$34; dessert, $7-$10.


hen you walk through the Garden, you better watch your back. That would have been the message sung to whomever was responsible for the darkness that dropped like a black-velvet theater curtain on Talula’s Garden last week. For seven hours, the power was out, and the only light was the natural kind, filtering through the crepe myrtle and sugarplums of the iron-gated More on: courtyard and into the restaurant. The temp was in the 80s and there was no air conditioning. Fortunately, PECO got the power back on in time for dinner, but the mishap wasn’t without casualties, like the foie gras parfait. Sitting at the al fresco bar, to where I’d been apologetically directed by the dewy hostesses, I pitied all the evening’s diners who wouldn’t get to slip a spoon into that square of livery luxury, as I did a week earlier. I pitied the career gals sipping sparkly cocktails. I pitied the couple discoursing on Founders Centennial IPA, Rogue’s Crater lake blue and how Stephen Starr’s second turn

in this space compares to his first, Washington Square. For the record, there is no comparison. I even pitied the medusa-haired lady sitting next to me, a difficult feeling to muster as she prattled on about her friend who was running late because she’d just had her eyes done. These guests, my banished-from-the-A/C comrades, would not know chef Michael Santoro’s smooth-as-Cool Whip foie this night. They might go on to enjoy their food, but to go to Talula’s Garden and not eat this first course would be like going to Baltimore and not eating crabs. The internationally schooled Santoro cures duck livers with salt and late-harvest pinot gris, furthering their intoxication by puréeing them with port, Madeira and brandy, plus garlic, shallots and thyme. Employing a French technique he learned working at the Fat Duck in England, he emulsifies the mix with eggs and enough clarified butter to entertain thoughts of liposuction. (I bet my new friend at the bar knows a guy.) The parfait is terrine-molded and baked, sliced and plated with pistachios, more food and cherries, brioche and stupefyingly good drink coverage apricot butter scented with summer savory at c i t y p a p e r . n e t / that Santoro grows just a few feet from m e a lt i c k e t. where I was sitting. That foie is the breakout is doubly ironic. The place is called Talula’s Garden, for one, not Talula’s Abattoir. And second, wasn’t it Starr in 2006 who caved to animal-rights activists and instituted a company-wide embargo on gavaged goods? Here, the notoriously meticulous restaurateur doesn’t make decisions about what is and isn’t on the menu. (Barclay Prime still serves foie, too, for the record.) He didn’t select the goose-fleshed >>> continued on page 36

cotton stationery on which the menus are printed, or the floor lamps that arch over the banquettes like curious ostriches. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick out the garden chairs or even the construction crews, including one assembled by Delawareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge Program, which teaches carpentry skills to troubled youth. When Washington Square was being transformed, the decision-making fell to Starrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner in the venture, Aimee Olexy of Kennett Squareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Talulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Singular visions are something Stephen understands pretty well,â&#x20AC;? says Olexy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he wanted to allow that to happen and not muss it up by interjecting ideas.â&#x20AC;? The restaurant that has resulted from this unusual anti-collaboration is a testament to them both. Right now, the list of Philly restaurants Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather eat at is thinner than Santoroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lovely fazzoletti pasta tossed with braised, bacon-wrapped rabbit spiced with vadouvan. From the bread service (house-baked sourdough) to the dessert (doughnuts with lavender-scented strawberry sauce), heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking at the level of all my favorites. I thought the halibut showed every minute of work that had been sunk into it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; brining the fish, foaming saffron, braising oxtail and artichoke hearts, one stuffed with the other in a prep-intense barigoule setup â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but offered little pleasurable reward. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Avatar of the Talulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden menu, and the only dish over two visits I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love. Haunting and visceral, the lamb shoulder is more District 9. Juniper lingers on the meat like perfume on a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collar, mace on the sweet Thumbelina carrots sunk like treasure into a quicksand of Anson Mills polenta. There are squash-blossom fritters filled with chèvre and ricotta, and a chilled purĂŠe of golden beets sweetened with moscato. The tortelloni of braised spiced goat, inspired by Santoroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indian in-laws, in powerful goat jus studded with peas and spherically smooth â&#x20AC;&#x153;gnudi,â&#x20AC;? is already the Pasta Dish of 2011, and the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only half over. The dessert list is a fanciful assembly of sweet curios, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to be vegan or lactose-intolerant to miss the masterful cheese menu Olexy has curated. There are six plates served, seven if you count the omakase house â&#x20AC;&#x2122;mongers Josh Kaplan and Jessica Muller can fashion to order on the pink-granite cheese bar. Served on reclaimed-slate boards dotted and streaked with date purĂŠes, rhubarb chutneys, artisanal honeys and candied nuts, the choices are as trim as a twosome and as large as the eight-count Master Collection. But you should get the Not Your Grannyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, â&#x20AC;&#x153;six new takes on tradition,â&#x20AC;? if only for the Tumelo Farms Fenacho, a butterscotch-y goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-milk Gouda freckled with whole fenugreek seeds. A long time ago, back when Olexy was the manager of Starrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blue Angel, she lived at Seventh and Pine and would walk by Washington Square on the way to work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in love with the spot then,â&#x20AC;? she says. And now, the rest of us can, too. (

BIBLE GIRL! It is a shame when people use religion for their own self-endicesment. If you are a true person you should not be throwing Bible verses around like you are holier than anyone else. You are corrupted by satan because you are looking to please yourself and only your needs.

Who gives a fuck that Monday was the 4th of July! To all the dumbasses mother fuckers who were cooking out and watching the fireworks celebration, let’s be honest it wasn’t meant for the all of us! I don’t remember the Liberty Bell ringing for my freedom. You can take this holiday and shove it up someone’s ass!

HEY LARRY! I know being raised in a toilet bowl, in a Barn on the edge of Shitland, on the planet Fucking loser,might have gave you your excuses as why you’ve been such a miserable dickhead to homeless

polluting our streets, forests and streams. On another note I agree with the waitress who spoke of impatient and rude people. My favorite customers are people who rush up to you while you’re helping another person and start blathering at you. It makes my job super fun!

I KNOW MY JOB! I hate your ugly ass telling me one thing and I tell you another and you still look at me like I am lying or something, you piece of shit! I know what the fuck I am doing and then some! How dare you tell me what you told me that morning. You don’t know

DROPKICK PIRATE You, a busty woman wearing a tight black dress with fishnets drinking Coors at Triangle Tavern and laughing with your friend about pirates. Me, a long haired lush wearing an band shirt who sat two stools away rolling my eyes as someone put money in the jukebox and played an Eagles song. I have to tell you that you seem so extraordinary and your laugh is addicting, you made such a dull, smokey, boring bar much more enchanting. I watched you feed money into the jukebox late that night and start dancing around to Dropkick Murphys before asking for a shot of Absolute and cursing like a sailor at the bartender for being so overpriced. I tried to talk to you but you brushed me off with a smirk saying something about how you’d never waste your time chatting with a man who thought band was a worthy band to be placed upon my shirt, you also punched me across the arm for having a ‘wimpy beard’. Give me a second chance would you? I frequent the tavern every weekend around 8pm. I promise to wear a more worthy shirt if you just let me buy you a drink.

Hey old dude...get yourself together! It is only a seat...You have no rights and you don’t own the shit! If you really feel that you are privileged to the fucking seat why don’t you ask the people at the store to reserve it for you or something. I think that it is pathetic for you to act the way you do! I only saw you for a few seconds but I know that you are a mental case! Get yourself and your life together!

WALK ALREADY people storing their stuff at the location and everyone else, but guess what ...You might have a tiny brain to go with that tiny dick of yours, but you’re just a rude dickless nobody, whose job it is to sweep bum trash and go around bitching you have to do actual work, You’re gone soon, hopefully!

I AGREE One person was commenting about how TRASH is everywhere in Philly. I’d like to say that it is also a problem in the beloved Fairmount Park. Fairmount Park and the Valley Green area have litter scattered throughout. This park is a really special place that Philadelphia is lucky to have, and THERE ARE TRASH CANS! It is better to have one big heaping pile of trash somewhere than

what the fuck I have to do or what you have to fucking do! Because if you did know what the fuck you were doing you wouldn’t be bothering me all the fucking time! I hate you and you are two-faced, ugly, stinky, need I say more! You know who you are and I just want you to know I just hate you! I hate what you stand for! You are never happy and like I told you...I am having an excellent week and everyday is a good day if I am smiling and you aren’t...get some deodorant! Please!

I LOVE YOU! Every time I see your face I think about how much I love you! I love the fact that you are just there when I need you to be! I love how you stroke my hair when I am sleeping. I honestly stay there and

People do not have to walk all slow like that when you know someone is trying to get by you and go to work!

We dared to dream the perfect dream and now we stand at the footsteps of dust. We held hands, shared straws, spent Tuesdays in laughter and in love. You told me everything. We walked down an aisle and said forever. After eight years, into our thirties, I assumed our love was just taking another level. I still thought of you as a that hot vixen dancing to Joy Division’s Disorder all over me. If we made it into our eighties, I promise I would cut your toenails for you. If you need time to find out what love means to you, or to just find your way out of the darkness, shine our lives like a light. All true love needs is a chance. To you, I cling, undaunted. Xo.

Dear Driver on Allegheny, I went to the bus stop with my roommate this morning to go to work. Next to the bus stop, I saw something on the road with birds and flies around it. I went to inspect it, realizing it was a cat. Then I looked at the paw, and what was left of the head. I drew in a breath as I recognized the pattern on the fur. It was MY cat. You murdered her. I hope your drunken joyride was worth it. You may think it’s silly or funny to be so upset about a cat, but she was sweeter than most people, adventurous and kind. She was my heart. I ran back to my house from the bus stop and realized she’d got out through the basement window. Only to be splattered by your car. To all of the people who kept running over her dead body, what is wrong with you? I hope karma comes around and finds you all in bits on the road, she deserved life more than you.

Hey Danny...oh my goodness. The way that you were eating me out, I thought to myself damn he is going to make me wanna fuck him tonight! I really wish that we were past that stage but we are not! I am really not ready to have sex with you or anyone else. I know that you keep inquiring about it and I am not really saying anything. That doesn’t mean that I will not do it! I love our friendship and I love the fact that I ask you to do things for me and you do it without hesitation! Thank you for almost made me cry the other night coming to my rescue! Thank you, dear!

Hey your fucking bag...I looked at you and I wanted to slap those glasses off of your face. How dare you keep pushing your ugly fakeass bag on my shoulder! I don’t like the fact that the train was crowded and then you were sitting there at the door not saying anything to anyone not even excuse me or anything! I could slap a perm in your hair...just because I hope that I don’t see you again, and if I do I hope you look like something better than you did before!





pretend that I am sleeping so that you can do it more and more! I love the fact that you are just one of a kind and I can’t replace you with nobody else. I love the fact that you are just so damn sexy in it bed makes me wanna fuck you more and more! I hope that you read this because you are what really matters to me!



the fact that you don’t say anything to me and I don’t say anything to you. If you were somewhere drowning I wouldn’t throw anything into the water to save you! I like the fact that you think that you are better than me! News Flash-bitch. I look better, smell better and I know that I look way younger than you ever will in your entire life!
