Whenever summer comes around, the music I find myself listening to tends to change. When the weather is cold and/or rainy, as it has been up until May, I tend to favor colder tones and minor chords. I favor harsher, sometimes more abrasive music. I bundle up and head to class, listening to the brittle keys of early Wu-Tang Clan, the brash, dissonant funk of Public Enemy and Rage Against the Machine. I get into more ambient music as well. My headphones work double time, keeping my ears warm and preparing me for a long trek in harsh weather. In summer, I tend to favor warmer, more “traditional” sounds. Bands like Drive-By Truckers, Wilco and The Raconteurs constantly make their way onto my summer playlists. Summer seems to encapsulate this spirit of togetherness, openness and freedom, encouraged by the weather. For some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, I associate those types of bands with those feelings. I have plenty of friends who would disagree with that. If you spent time around campus this past week, you surely noticed the increased amount of traffic, the swarm of people, the graduation caps and gowns. We all know what that means. School is officially out. Seniors have said their goodbyes. It’s finally summer break for students and faculty, and I have to admit, it feels pretty good. If last summer is an indication, the campustown streets will be significantly less populated for the next few months, making campus bars, restaurants and stores significantly more chilled out (or boring, depending on how you look at it). It’s a welcome break from the bustle of the other seasons. CU natives and transplants who remain in town for the summer tend to come together more often, and that always brings a smile to my face. Last summer, plenty of CU bands made their way to Green Street for the first time in what felt like forever. But despite my association of summer with a relaxed, slowed-down state of being, changes are afoot in my life and at buzz. Last week’s gaming issue saw one of our oldest and most beloved staffers, Tyler Schmidt, design his last cover and say goodbye. Some staffers (and many of my friends) have left for internships in various cities across the country. Many of my older friends have graduated and moved on to a new, exciting chapter in their lives. But that’s okay! I’m proud of all of them and I have plenty of friends in CU. A new summer staff will gradually introduce themselves via their sections. I guess the all-knowing Victor Vazquez of Das Racist said it best, “The only consistency is change, my friend.” The key to enjoying life, at least in my limited experience here, comes in embracing change and seeking out new opportunities.
I just blue myself.

Gatsby: I saw The Great Gatsby on Monday and loved it, though I may be one of only a few who did. I’m a fan of Baz Luhrmann’s work, from his Bohemian burlesque film Moulan Rouge! to his oddly existential song “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen),” and was not surprised at his fantastical and flashy take on Gatsby. It is a very stylish film, with plenty of quick cuts, vibrant colors and music from Jay-Z and Lana Del Rey implanted upon the Prohibition-era scenery. While many people could not wrap their head around this absurd juxtaposition, I believe it further accentuated the film’s themes. I can’t think of a better way to present the meaningless excess of the Roaring Twenties to a 21st century audience than juxtaposing a Jay-Z song called “$100 Bill” against a bunch of pretty, carefree faces gambling in a secret room in the back of a barbershop on an average afternoon.
» Crowdfunding: Crowdfunding platforms are incredible resources for independent artists, though they've gotten a bad rap lately as artists with access to studio financing start to use Kickstarter to mitigate their financial risk. In my opinion, as long as everyone is allowed in the sandbox, it's fine. Art will endure.

The computer to my right looks so lonely. Its screen, once full of light, has been reduced to a black, blank stare. The only semblance of life is that little white light pulsating in the corner, like Sleeping Beauty waiting to be awoken by the soft, yet elegant touch of your fingertips on its keys. Come back to us, Tom. Your computer and I miss you now more than ever.
» Crunk tweets: Social media and rap music are crazy things. I am seeing my life take a strange turn with both social media and rap music to blame. There’s been a recent trend in my tweets: every time I get insanely drunk, I always end up tweeting, “Snapbacks and Tattoos,” with different hashtags at the end, which always makes me think about a few things: 1.) I’ve only listened to this song while I was under the influence, and I don’t even know the artist. 2.) I own many snapbacks but do not have any tattoos, so I’m feeling a little insecure. 3.) Twitter is awesome. #yikes May 16-22, 2013 buzz 3

1/8th Soderbergh page Steven shares his views on studio control in Hollywood by Adlai Stevenson
ll good things must come to an end, we’re always reminded. The recent University graduation isn’t the only reason why this truism comes to mind. Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh announced several years ago that he planned to retire after the release of Behind the Candelabra, his upcoming HBO movie featuring Matt Damon and Michael Douglas set to play on May 26. Soderbergh plans to mix his hand in other interests, but he’s said one thing’s for sure: “I’m done with movies.” It’s a shame. Soderbergh, whose prolific career spans 26(!) feature films alone (the Oceans trilogy and the Oscar-winning Traffic among them), knew the ins and outs of movies genre and was never afraid to experiment with them. What’s more, Soderbergh even took to the frontline of Hollywood as one of the first major directors to regularly use digital cinematography. He even supported simultaneously releasing some of his films in theaters and on home formats. Vanguard ... or self-indulgent eccentric, as many of his detractors claim? My vote’s for the former. We’re saying goodbye to one hell of an impressive, totally unique director. But Soderbergh hasn’t let his career quietly fade away. The man’s been on a role after his official announcement in 2009, rounding out eight solid movies since then. Side Effects, the efficient paranoid thriller from last February, signaled his last theatrical release. Soderbergh was even able to disparage Hollywood cronies one last time with Candelabra. Reportedly, several studios feared to touch it because of the particularly intimate relationship between Douglas’ and Damon’s characters. So much for discrimination, er, box office analyses. Behind the Candelabra will also play in competition at the Cannes Film Festival later this month, the first TV movie to do so. And the man keeps pulling out surprises. Soderbergh delivered a keynote speech on the state of cinema several weeks ago at the San Francisco International Film Festival. A self-described “rant,” Soderbergh warned in advance that he would “drop some grenades” as he opined about the difference between cinema and movies, and today’s top problems in Hollywood. But despite a few strange anecdotes, Soderbergh’s send-off speech was eloquent and deserving of its applause. In his speech, Soderbergh first defined the difference he sees between cinema and movies. “A movie is something you see, and cinema is something that’s made," he said. "Cinema is a specificity of vision. It’s an approach in which everything matters. It’s the polar opposite of generic or arbitrary, and the result is as unique as a signature or a fingerprint.” He warned that movies, projects made from the interests of committees and companies, are slowly shrinking his idea of cinema. Of course, the movie

industry is a business, so it’s no wonder why a good number of projects may appear commodified or by-the-numbers. But Soderbergh readily acknowledged this, adding that he’s always tried to achieve a personal vision that would also provide successful financial returns. Unfortunately, he said that the chance for directors to achieve their personal vision is diminishing for several reasons. Soderbergh said too many Hollywood executives today aren’t familiar with movies. Again, this might not appear as a problem since the industry needs to primarily operate as a successful business before movies we all love and cherish can be made. Fair enough, but Soderbergh has a right to raise some concern. Should these individuals solely dictate the careers of professionals who do know how movies successfully operate? The potential consequences are alarming. Season release schedules resembling clever business proposals than anything else. As Marvel enters phase two of its Avengers strategy with an excessive surplus of sequels and spin-offs, Soderbergh’s criticisms seem ominously valid. And this business strategy can account for a lot of ill-informed mistakes. Soderbergh provided one popular example that catches a lot of flak today: remakes. “They get simple things wrong sometimes, like remakes,” Soderbergh said in his speech. “I mean, why are you always remaking the famous movies? Why aren’t you looking back into your catalog and finding some sort of programmer that was made 50 years ago that has a really good idea in it, that if you put some fresh talent on it, it could be really great.” What’s worse, Soderbergh added that the distorted administrative system means that filmmakers largely take much of the blame for these executive decisions. So, while creative teams are shuffled in and out of Hollywood, Soderbergh said there’s no turnover new ideas
about how to approach the business or how to deal with talent or material. Soderbergh highlighted the domino effects of the executive control in Hollywood. As global markets become much more lucrative for studios, he said that studios figure they must make much more homogenized and simplified movies in order to attract more audiences around the globe. Could that criticism be a little prejudiced or condescending for Soderbergh to make? Who knows. Fart jokes transcend all languages. Soderbergh’s State of Cinema speech was no doubt opinionated, but the opinion of a master director who’s spent over 20 years of life working within Hollywood deserves to be heard. If his concerns are indeed true, it means the Hollywood system is no better than when he broke into it with Sex, Lies, and Videotape in 1989. Soderbergh’s entry signified promise, but he leaves in a bleak situation of commercial overkill that’s forcing independent ventures out of their landscape. It’s easy to roll eyes at that sentiment, but the motivation to do so is even more of a bummer than the original claim: The movie industry has always been like this. But there’s equal reason to stay hopeful. Even if smaller, independent features don’t even have the same diminutive financial capital as before, cheaper means of production and distribution give these projects a greater chance of happening. And there will always be great filmmakers somewhere, creating new and exciting projects. Maybe Soderbergh’s prospects shouldn’t be so gloomy. It remains to be seen what Soderbergh will tackle next. He’s already taken to Twitter to publish a novella through tweets. Abstract art projects are on his list as well. Who knows if he’ll ever return to movies – liars and con men are so prevalent in his work, I wouldn’t be surprised if his retirement is a hoax. But if he actually does retire, wouldn’t that be the greatest trick?

The annual Parkland College Graphic Design Student Juried Exhibition by John Milas
he annual Parkland College Graphic Design Student Juried Exhibition will be in the school’s art gallery until June 20. The event is an opportunity for the graphic design students to showcase their work in a public venue. Last year, around 800 people attended the exhibition. “It’s a state-of-the-art two-year program,” said Paul Young, the program’s director. Young has been teaching at Parkland for around 11 years. “Most graphic design programs are four years in a university setting, such as U of I, ISU, etc. Most students who graduate from community college programs usually don’t end up holding very high quality jobs in design firms," Young said. "In our case, we manage to instruct students who hold some top positions in Champaign-Urbana. It’s a pretty prestigious alumni list.” The program has an emphasis on immersing its students in the local graphic design scene. They’re introduced to a lot of industry professionals while also going on field trips and getting to know the local design community. The exhibition collects the best student work over the past year and displays it in the gallery. “I think Parkland College has a fantastic art gallery,” Young said. He considers graphic design to be different from other art and calls it “commercial art.” “It’s no different in terms of visual communication, creativity, composition, craftsmanship,” he said. “It’s used for marketing, promotion, branding and identity. All of these are commercial activities which support commercial entities; that’s why I call it commercial art.” The show is juried, meaning that not every submission is accepted for exhibition. The five graphic design faculty members decide on which pieces to show based on their assessment of quality. “We reach a consensus to determine what group of pieces should be on the show, and what group shouldn’t,” Young said. For this year’s exhibition, there were a total of 274 entries submitted, of which 209 were accepted. There will be 175 print, 24 Web and 13 motion graphics pieces shown at the gallery. A bank of computers will be in the gallery for viewers to see students’ web designs. Young emphasizes that graduating students need to have web design in their portfolios. “This is 2013," he said. "You cannot call yourself a graphic designer and not have designed a website.” Young also described the motion graphics items. “We’ve been tinkering with teaching motion graphics for a while,” he said, and explained how students now work on things that would potentially be used in TV commercials. The 2013 exhibition is the first year with involvement from the Champaign Urbana Design Organization (CUDO), a group that advocates local graphic design. Young, a CUDO board member, approached them with the opportunity to help stu-

dents and professionals to network at the event. “This is a networking opportunity for my students,” Young said. Many of the members of CUDO are also former students of his. Matthew Farrell, a Parkland student in the program, had work that was accepted for the exhibition. Young called Farrell a perfectionist. “He loves to do logos the most, and I guess the definition of a good logo is simplicity and clarity,” Young said. “He can do that really well. He has exquisite taste when it comes to typography. He’s very hard working, detail oriented. I can see him holding a top creative position five to 10 years from now. He’s that good.” Farrell replied: “Coming up with creative and unique solutions for clients’ logos is something I pride myself on. I think that’s why a lot of people do approach me. Because I’m a native of Champaign-Urbana, word of mouth about my work gets around much easier, and networking here is great.” Farrell has been working as a professional alongside being a student at Parkland. “I started in the graphic design program about three years ago, and I’m also a freelance graphic designer,” he said. “I have six or seven logos and a couple identities, which is sort of the logo applied. For instance, business cards, letterheads. I’m mostly approached for logos, and the show reflects that.” He has made logos for local businesses, some of which will be on display and others that will be available in a logo book at the show. He’ll also be displaying illustrations, such as posters. Farrell has shown his work at the past three ex-
hibitions and considers this to be his strongest. “I actually received an award for one of my pieces," Farrell said. "I don’t know which one it is yet, they didn’t tell me." Parkland student Ghada Yousef’s work also made it into the show for the second year. “She went directly from Central High School to Parkland,” Young said. “I would say she’s a dedicated, hard working student who has been bitten by the bug of graphic design, and it’s now in her blood. She’s very passionate about this creative avenue she now has. She’s self-motivated and is passionate about letterpress printing. I can absolutely say that she’s easy to work with and someone you enjoy collaborating with.” Yousef replied: “I’m showing a lot of different styles of graphic design: posters, a lot of illustrations, websites. I also have my personal resume and business cards. There’s branding, logos and identities. I have around 20 pieces in there. I’ve gotten better in a lot of styles, especially illustrations.” She’s especially excited about showing her large poster illustrations, websites and work she has done for clients. Some of her freelance work came from an internship through Parkland, but she still works for other clients as a designer. Yousef also works part time at The Living Letter Press in Champaign. “I love doing vintage styles," she said. "Using letterpress machines is one of my biggest interests right now.” Yousef also volunteers for CUDO and is looking forward to becoming a board member in the near future. The exhibition will have a reception at the gal-
lery on the evening of May 16. The reception, which was attended by about 150 people last year, will feature food from KoFusion and is cosponsored by CUDO. Awards will be presented at the reception after industry professionals have judged the exhibition. To win awards, Young said, “It’s got to be creative, it’s got to be different, it’s got to be unique.” There’s a level of professionalism that judges and jurors look for, whether or not it looks like student work or professional work. “The students displayed a solid understanding of design principles, layout, typography, branding, presentation...on and on,” said Chris Sims, one of this year’s judges. Gina Manola, another judge for the show, said, “There was a great deal of sophisticated design work on display that showed a very high level of skill and creativity. When I walked in the door and saw the work on display I knew I had my work cut out for me.” “The awards come from a variety of funding sources,” Young said. “We have people within Parkland College. We also have donors.” Many donors include local organizations and businesses, such as Presence Covenant Medical Center. “We’ll have a total of $1,300 in prize money to give away Thursday evening,” Young said. CUDO will also sponsor an independent afterparty unaffiliated with Parkland at Jupiter’s in downtown Champaign after the reception on Thursday. “It’s a good self promotion kind of thing,” Farrell said. “It’s great opportunity to display our work to the public.” May 16-22, 2013 buzz 5
Label Me CU
A look at Champaign-Urbana’s documentary record label by Sean Neumann
was five in the afternoon. Isaac Arms walked into the bar at Mike 'N’ Molly’s, slapped a $20 bill on the counter and ordered a shot of whiskey with a Pabst Blue Ribbon on the side. It had been a long day. Long days aren’t rare for Arms. He’s a musician, a promoter and a booker at multiple show venues. He also runs his own venue, works at both a record store and with local schools and owns a record label, among other things. But that’s not what he would call himself. He would call himself a documenter. A human scrapbook of the town around him. Isaac Arms doesn’t live in Champaign. Champaign lives in him. Heirship Records, Arms' label, has released albums from artists such as Grandkids, Terminus Victor, Withershins, Evil Tents, Swords, Jay Moses and even Arms’ solo record. The label strictly releases bands from Champaign-Urbana, a rule Arms said is because of his desire to capture the current period of music in the scene. “The only thing Heirship exists to do is to put out the finest quality records that are coming out of Champaign, and document the scene,” Arms said. “I want someone to be able to go and put on a record when they’re 30 and think, ‘This shit happened. We were here and we did this.’” The label is run by Arms with little to no help from others, other than the musicians making the music. He organizes and produces physical copies of the records, distributes the music and promotes it as well. Heirship’s origins can be traced back to 2005, when Arms moved to Champaign to be around its music and ended up starting a band of his own called Blanket Arms, self-releasing albums under the name Pop Monster Records. Yet, Arms said the first true release from the label was Withershins’ 2009 album aeriel, although the album didn’t have the literal Heirship Records label on it. Arms jokes about having help with the label during Pop Monster’s time. “I started it with a friend who didn’t really help me much,” Arms said. “He packaged one cassette out of the many we released.” But that same friend’s help came in a different way, one more valuable than Arms could have imagined at the time, when he gave Arms a mixape that changed his life. “It had a whole bunch of stuff on it that I had never heard, and I’ve never quite heard anything like it since,” Arms said. “It was a very expressive, very free-form type of music and attitude. It was the kind of vibe I wanted to encapsulate.” In the months after receiving the mixtape, Arms started a band, released an album, launched a record label and began touring. He was reborn with a new philosophy. Heirship Records became Isaac Arms' mixtape as he tries everyday to distribute

music he believes could change lives. Since then, Arms went on to officially release five albums on Heirship and has already released two records in 2013, Grandkids’ Timeshare and Terminus Victor’s Prevention vs. Intervention. “I just like sharing good music,” Arms said. “I want to help facilitate other people using music to connect to each other.” Arms said that he approached the idea of starting a record label in the same way he started making music: diving right in and learning on the way. “I don’t know how to run a record label, I’m just
doing it,” Arms said. “I’m just a name. Heirship Records is just literally a label. There’s a lot of history here. We have to think about this town and what it can mean to the national scene and the future.” The name Heirship Records comes from the meaning of the word “heirship” itself, Arms said, defined as “one who receives or is entitled to receive some endowment or quality from a parent or predecessor.” The “endowment” is the local Champaign music scene – one that most musicians and supporters
have stumbled upon after moving to the towns. Heirship Records, through its releases, stands to leave the history of the scene behind when it leaves. “Leave a room nicer than when you walked into it,” Arms said. “That’s a very simple rule.” It’s a rule that Arms has been working under for nearly a decade and a rule that emanates through Heirship Records, preserving the Champaign music scene one album at a time. Check back with buzz throughout the summer as we examine more of CU’s local labels.

Catch one of Sonny Stubble’s final performances this Thursday by Will Carr
Used with permission from Sonny Stubble
his summer, local rock staple Sonny Stubble will play their final show in Urbana before going on an indefinite hiatus. That show will be part of a small festival — they’re calling it “Stubblefest” — featuring local bands, fun and games. Admission is free and more details are forthcoming. Before that, however, there will be one additional opportunity to catch Sonny Stubble before they call it quits: Thursday at Cowboy Monkey with The Fights. The show is going to be professionally recorded for a live album they plan to release. The band also released a self-titled album last fall, which you can listen to and download for free on their Bandcamp page. At this Thursday’s show, Sonny Stubble will be performing a lot of material they’ve written since the album’s release but have yet to record. Even with no definite plans to play together after this summer, they’re still as productive as ever. They prefer the energy of a live setting to recording in a studio, so they’re hoping for a big turnout. Over their three years as a band, they’ve seen their fanbase widen thanks to word of mouth,
and more recently, the album. But their hometown audience is still their strongest. As anyone who has seen them will likely agree, Sonny Stubble brings the party with them, and their shows exude nothing but good vibes. A highlight of a recent Urbana house show was a cover of the Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer.” Expect them to throw out plenty more cool surprises at these last few upcoming shows. The nature of the hiatus is still somewhat mysterious, but it involves one of them gettin’ hitched. The band said they would definitely play together again if the opportunity arises in the future, and the members have other musical endeavors in the meantime. Until then, one of your last chances to see them is this week. Stay tuned for details on the festival next month!

possess secret menus for those loyal and brave enough to try something new. From fast food chains like McDonald’s to the local Mirabelle Fine
Pastries in downtown Urbana, everyone who’s anyone knows the dishes on these secret menu items. We broke a few down for you right here. The rest is up to you to decide. Chipotle Believe it or not, Chipotle does nachos and quesadillas for those cheese-lovers out there. However, whatever you do, do not order the Quesarito...people will hate you for it. Basically, it’s a burrito wrapped in a quesadilla. If you’re really adventurous, try the heart attack wrap. The people behind the counter will glare at you all the while, however. Jamba Juice Oh yes, even the healthy cannot escape the trend of secret menus. Jamba doesn’t give out a recipe list for their secret drinks, but they will make them for you. Interesting names like “Pink Starburst” and “Sourpatch Kid” sound delightfully bad for you, albeit healthy given the Jamba Juice label. If interested, stop by http://www. jambajuicesecrets.com/ for suggestions. McDonald’s One of the kings of fast food, the Golden Arches remind people of their young, broke days. Revamp your experience with the ever popular “McGangBang” that has an off-putting name, but consists of a double cheeseburger and a McChicken sandwich. Other options include a breakfast McCrepe and the hybrid morning-lunch special “10:35.” Check http://mcdonaldssecretmenu. com/ for other heart attack alternatives. Mirabelle Fine Pastries According to those in the know, Mirabelle gets taken over by “M Pizza” at night. Apparently, M Pizza is a guy who uses Mirabelle’s ovens to make pizzas of his choosing until his
ingredients run out. He uses ingredients like artichoke, feta cheese and spinach for starters — delicious and healthy ingredients for the late night crowd. To check it out, try http://www. facebook.com/PizzaM. Panera Bread To fight against those unhealthy fast food secret menu items, Panera released its own “hidden menu,” which consists of mostly “power” items chock-full of nutrients. Try the “Power Breakfast Egg Bowl with Steak” or the “Power Mediterranean Roast Turkey Salad.” http://mypanera. panerabread.com/articlestips/article/accessinto-paneras-hidden-menu/ fills you in on all the other products. Starbucks Given the half-off frappuccino deal now going on, Starbucks remains on the top of many people’s lists for those delicious iced coffee drinks. However, did you know there are dozens of secret menu items in existence, unbeknownst to the general coffee-drinking public? I happened to try a horchata frap and a Samoa frap for starters. If you’re really committed, a Nutella frappuccino sounds beautiful on a hot summer day. To find more secret recipes, check out http:// starbuckssecretmenu.net/ for a host of other equally awesome options. Wendy’s Wendy wants you to explore some undercover options, like the Barnyard. This includes every assortment of meat offered on the menu. If you prefer to ease into Wendy’s secret menu items, try the Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe for a cheap, but filling, meal.

meet your fitness instructor Get physical with Dan Maroun BY DAVID ROBERTSON
i try to take something away from each class that i teach so i can grow.
Dan helps lead Bodystep at the Les Mills March Quarterly in Rosemont, Ill. Used with permission from Dan Maroun
ince 2007, Dan Maroun has been in Champaign teaching fitness classes for the University's Campus Recreation and other gyms in the area. You might see him teaching cycling and Body Blitz at the ARC, or various other Les Mills classes including Bodypump and Bodystep at the YMCA. Dan talks about his work in group fitness and what health means to him. » buzz: How long have you been an instructor? » Dan Maroun: I’ve been an instructor for five years at Campus Rec. The time goes by very quickly. » buzz: When and why did you decide you wanted to be a fitness instructor? » DM: I lived in France and bought a gym membership off a whim. I started working out there, and things were okay, but then I saw this Bodypump class. So I walked in and tried it out. Like everyone else who is an instructor, you fall in love with a class and then you fall in love with the idea of wanting to teach. » buzz: What is your favorite class to teach and why?
» DM: For a long time, it was cycle. There’s something about putting the right playlist together, the lights being off in the studio and all of us being so tightly cramped together that we feel the work our partner does. I am addicted to that class, and I have taught Tuesday night cycle since 2009. » buzz: What format are you planning on learning and teaching next? » DM: Les Mills' Bodyjam. I am so excited for this format, and I can’t wait to share it with Campus Rec. » buzz: Any others you want to learn? » DM: I also need to be brave and learn how to teach a yoga class. I can’t stand still, so the thought of teaching it scares me. » buzz: Do you ever get tired of teaching? » DM: Of course, I’m only human. » buzz: How do you get energized on the days when you are a little tired or unmotivated? » DM: We have our tired days and our "meh" days, but this is my job. I have to leave my problems at the door so I can deliver a world-class,
hour-long workout to the people who need it. » buzz: What’s your best memory related to this job? » DM: The one I’ve yet to make. I try to take
something away from each class that I teach so I can grow. I have those “aha” moments every day. Those are my best memories. » buzz: What’s the nicest thing a participant has ever said to you? » DM: “You make me a better person.” I awkwardly said, “Thanks,” and walked away before I started water-working everywhere. » buzz: What is your favorite part about teaching altogether? » DM: People. You really meet people from every walk of life. Each person has a story, and I love hearing it. » buzz: As a fitness instructor, you seem pretty goal-oriented. Is there any motto you strive to live by? » DM: We are all works in progress. » buzz: I totally agree. Now for a few fun questions... If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? » DM: Back to France where my group fitness career started. I am actually going back there in June, so my wish is coming true! My other choice is New Zealand — first-class flight, of course. » buzz: Favorite musical artist? » DM: This is an impossible question, but I am going to go with Robyn. » buzz: Anything else you’d like to add? » DM: Be positive, and do one thing 1 percent better every day.

“New Wave”--catch it!
Destihl offers great food, too
by Shalayne Puila
estihl, known for its brewery in downtown Champaign, has much more to offer than cold beer. Come hungry and ready splurge on their “full-flavor” dishes of hearty American fare. My visit to Destihl began with herb-slathered steak quesadillas and a strawberry goat cheese salad. The steak was perfectly cooked, and the herbs added an explosion of flavor to the milder quesadillas. An accompaniment of greens with a punchy yet creamy dressing complimented the dish very well. The strawberry goat cheese salad was also delicious. The goat cheese was mixed with some sort of herb for added flavor. Fresh mandarin oranges, orange vinaigrette dressing and strawberries were a refreshing addition to the salad. My favorite part, however, would have to be the powdered sugar-covered cashews for a sweet twist. After opting out of my waiter’s suggestion for the stuffed portobella mushrooms (which I will certainly have to go back and try), my main course was the special for the evening: a lamb burger with melted cheese, arugula and another creamy sauce piled high on a wheat bun. The burger was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I finished the entire plate, even the special seasoned potato wedges. They were a substitute for french fries, as Destihl had run out earlier that evening, but there are no complaints here. They were perfectly crunchy, yet thick with a hearty potato center. As if I was not already stuffed, I decided to pile on the desserts as well. To my disappointment,

Destihl was out of the giant, layered chocolate cake my sweet tooth was craving. However, the caramel sundae, layered carrot cake and chocolate mouse certainly satisfied my sugar cravings – for the next few weeks. My sugar high began with the carrot cake, which was perfectly moist with small bits of carrot poking through the cake, finished with extra-creamy (are you sensing a theme yet?) cream cheese frosting to die for. This was easily my favorite dessert. The chocolate mousse on the other hand lacked luster for me. I asked for the candied bacon on the side (a good choice for me) and was left with a thick frosting-textured mousse with cinnamon sprinkled over top. Perhaps my sugar intake had just reached its boiling point, but the third and final dessert I tried was a winner with a simple warm caramel and vanilla ice cream sundae. My waiter proved that the wait staff is not only knowledgeable in their variety of beers, but also in their dishes. James Schnitzlein was spot on when he said, “We don’t let people leave hungry.” If a trip to Destihl is set in your sights for the evening, expect a hearty helping of creamy, dense dishes. Heed my advice and power through a dessert or maybe even two. They are worth it. Overall, Destihl impressed me with a classy upscale bar and fine dining atmosphere, an excellent wait staff and food guaranteed never to leave you hungry. Destihl is located at 301 N. Neil St., Champaign. Go to http://www.destihl.com/ for more information.
