Killing Her Softly Nothing’s changed for Americans exploited in the sex trade . By Tara Murtha tmurtha@philadelphiaweekly.com

In Philadelphia, prostitutes on average die by the age of 40. Though violence against women and girls on the street generally goes unrecognized— women acclimated to being arrested for prostitution don’t exactly run to cops when they are assaulted—the search for the Kensington Strangler recently brought to light just how harrowing life is for women and girls on the street. Strangling and rape is so common that when women reported getting choked and raped, that alone wasn’t enough evidence to link to the same perpetrator. Outreach workers say that’s business as usual. But institutional biases and the cultural prejudices that inform them are still winning out, legislatively speaking, over what studies and common sense confirm: most modern street prostitution is not a victimless crime. Just 15 when recruited into the so-called game, Mimi was a victim and we failed to help her. As a society, we’re up in arms about traffickers yet ignore—and sometimes glorify— pimps, even though they are just domestic traffickers. We not only condone johns by generally not bothering to arrest and prosecute them, our policies and laws reflect their point of view. We also accept the myths and the lies. At one point I asked Mimi if she thought her customers knew the real deal. “Oh they know,” she said. “That’s why they ask … things like, ‘Oh baby you’re just a little girl out looking for a good time, right?’ and you say, ‘Yeah.’ “It’s part of the job. They know it’s not true,” she said. “That’s why they call it a trick.” Want to know how much sex with a teenager cost? Just ask Mimi. It cost her everything. n

Mimi wasn’t her real name. Born in Russia and adopted by American parents in New Jersey at six years old, Mimi was given a Russian name, an American name and then whatever street names pimps assigned. When I told her she could choose her own name for the article, she lit up like a kid at Christmas. “I still have messages from her on my phone,” says Brandy. (Brandy would rather we not print her last name because of the covert nature of some of her work.) According to Brandy, Mimi was doing well for a while after the article. She was proud of herself for speaking out. She moved to Allentown, landed a job as a waitress and an apartment. “Then the economy took a dive and she got laid off,” says Brandy. To save money while looking for another job, Mimi broke her lease and downgraded to renting a room for about $90 a week. But soon, her meager savings started to drain. “She would call and I’d ask, ‘Did you try Target? Did you try Wal-mart? What’s close to the bus station?’ I’d try to talk her though it.” Then Brandy received a voicemail that she still can’t bring herself to delete. “She [was] absolutely hysterical, [saying] that she couldn’t do it anymore and she was to the point where she had no money. The landlord told her that she had to leave because she was already a week and a half behind on paying her rent,” says Brandy. “So she went to a club and danced for one night.” They spoke the next day. “[Mimi] said, ‘I can’t do it, I don’t care what I have to do, I had flashbacks and it was horrible and I don’t like feeling like that,’” recalls Brandy. “She said, ‘I want to be better than that.’” Brandy hooked Mimi up with Philadelphia’s Covenant House. She stayed there a while, but had to leave on her 22nd birthday, according to policy. “She had to leave and had nowhere to go,” says Brandy. “Desperate, she got back in the life. She was taken to New York and apparently decided she couldn’t do it anymore and committed suicide.” Brandy doesn’t know the gory details; she says she doesn’t want to know. Meanwhile, Brandy has founded her

own anti-trafficking group called Helping Educate and Advocate Against Trafficking (HEAAT) and is part of an effort that is advocating to pass the Safe Harbor Act for New Jersey. The Safe Harbor Act recognizes American-born children exploited in the commercial sex trade as victims in need of services and rehabilitation instead of incarceration. In essence, it is the first step toward stopping the mainstream practice of jailing girls for men’s crimes. In 2008, New York became the first state to pass it. Despite slow-moving legislative changes that can help protect kids like Mimi in the future, it’s still almost impossible to find funding for direct services. “No grants, no nothing,” sighs Brandy. Activists are pushing similar legislation in Pennsylvania, but that doesn’t help the estimated 100,000 girls like Mimi now. Even with Safe Harbor on the books three years now, budget deficits in New York have prevented its funding. It’s estimated there are 50 beds available across the country.

“We had bad timing,” says Mary DeFusco, founding board member of Dawn’s Place and director of training and recruitment at the Defender Association of Philadelphia. “You have to catch these women when the iron is hot, when they really want to make a change and then hope you can start that change right away,” DeFusco says. When Mimi needed Dawn’s Place, she was denied access because the organization couldn’t find funding to support services for American girls, though it did find funding for foreign girls. “What we got is funding for the foreign trafficked women through the USCCB (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops),” DeFusco says. “We get it for providing case management services to foreign women, but for the domestic women, we get bupkis.” There’s a strange disconnect between awareness of—and subsequently, services for—foreign-born victims trafficked into commercial sexual exploitation and American-born victims. While awareness and social services for international human trafficking has skyrocketed thanks to journalists like Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times and celebrity advocates Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, little has changed for Americans exploited in the commercial sex trade. To this day, Dawn’s Place hasn’t been able to secure funding to treat American victims. Instead, the program relies mostly on private donations. These days, Dawn’s Place accepts domestic victims but by the time they figured out how to do so without funding, Mimi had already secured an apartment and job and seemed to be doing all right.

Brandy, Mimi’s social worker, says that after that, Mimi gave up on Dawn’s Place. Though DeFusco didn’t know Mimi personally, she says it’s “heartbreaking” to hear about Mimi’s suicide. Without missing a beat, DeFusco relays a similar tale about a woman named Candace. Candace went up to a Daily News reporter asking for help. The reporter relayed her information to DeFusco. But by the time DeFusco went to meet with her, she was told Candace died four days earlier. DeFusco still keeps a letter Candace wrote asking for help on her desk as a reminder. “If you don’t catch them, they die,” says DeFusco.

Two years ago this month, I wrote a cover story that profiled the struggles of Mimi, a 20-year-old girl from New Jersey who was just two months into recovery after spending five grueling years in what players call “the game”—street-level prostitution where the only so-called winners are pimps who earn big bucks off the backs of women and girls who, studies show, average 12 years old when they are first recruited. “Mimi hopes to find salvation in Philadelphia, at a safe haven called Dawn’s Place,” I wrote. Dawn’s Place is a residential recovery center in Philadelphia designed specifically for women and girls looking for a way out of “the game.” With nowhere to go—ex pimps were hunting for her and her parents wouldn’t let her back home—social workers were helping Mimi hide out while she waited to get into Dawn’s Place. When the story ran, the Dawn’s Place was set up but sat empty while its board searched for funding. “Once it’s fully staffed, [Dawn’s Place] will help women and girls like Mimi sort out the psychological, emotional and financial wreckage that are the obstacles to real recovery,” I wrote. I remember Mimi as a cute kid, with a childlike frame and huge eyes set into a tiny face. She looked so young she was regularly carded for cigarettes. She matter-of-factly relayed a few examples of what happened

to her while her “boyfriend” pimped her out in Vegas: a john pounded her skull into the pavement, she was whipped with hot metal wires and forced to service roadside johns through fever, fear and broken bones. “I want to go to Dawn’s Place and get counseling. I want to go to school very badly,” said Mimi during our interview. “I want to be independent. I don’t want to rely on other people.” Social workers were helping her deal with hospital bills and get a new birth certificate. “If a former pimp catches up with her, she could be killed,” I wrote. Mimi never found salvation in Philadelphia, or anywhere else. She killed herself in New York City last summer.

Queer Eye for a Different Guy? Word on the Street is Nutter’s losing the gay vote. By Aaron Kase akase@philadelphiaweekly.com

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY Februar y 9-15, 2011 • 8

Put John Street in a room with a chunk of the city’s gay leadership, start talking Boy Scouts and a good story is bound to emerge. Last week’s meeting of the Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club apparently devolved into a hate party aimed at Mayor Nutter over the city’s dealings with the Boy Scouts, with Street taking the lead in the festivities. “If I were gay, I would not endorse Mayor Nutter,” Street told the crowd, according to James Duggan, founder of the weekly newsletter Queertimes. “You as a community owe it to yourselves to stand firm and not endorse Nutter for mayor either.” The spectacle of Street hypothesizing on his sexuality makes for good theater, but it’s a bit of a red herring—he isn’t supporting Nutter as a straight man, either, having openly attacked his successor a number of times over the last few months. More telling than Street’s jabs is the move by several prominent gay leaders to pull their support from Nutter, who until now has carefully cultivated a reputation for being an LGBT-

friendly, progressive mayor. “He has talked the talk but hasn’t walked the walk,” says Malcolm Lazin, executive director of gay-rights group Equality Forum. “The walk that he’s walked has been extremely disappointing.” How could this be? As councilman, Nutter was instrumental in creating the law to extend benefits to domestic partners of city employees. Once mayor, he hired the respected Gloria Casarez as the city’s director of LGBT affairs, and even raised a rainbow flag outside City Hall for Gay History Month last October. But that’s not enough, say Lazin and Duggan. They claim the mayor’s resolve has been absent on important issues, particularly on Boy Scout discrimination and bullying of gay kids in school. “Michael Nutter ran making various promises to us—among them that he would fully support us, in terms of not subsidizing discrimination by the Boy Scouts,” Lazin says. “He said that he would not tolerate bullying in schools...but there has not been one disciplinary action taken against either a student teacher or principal for the use of epithets against gay students.” “We love Gloria [Casarez], but her hands are tied,” Duggan adds. “She should be more of an advocate for our community and not a PR person for the mayor.” Casarez is quick to point out that while speaking at events is part of her job, she spends most of her time engaged in the nuts and bolts of advocacy work. “I work with a wide range of service providers on any number of different issues,” she says. “Public safety, schools, behavioral health, real issues I work on every day. Those are not PR issues.” The contention that Nutter is making no strides to combat school bullying is particularly stinging since the city has been holding

hearings over the past year on bullying and discrimination within the schools, including LGBT cases. The School District has had an LGBTQ Advisory Commission in place for years, which is now actively training principals, teachers and students on creating queer-safe environments in schools. What’s more, the School District recently revamped its bullying policy, which more clearly lays out escalating consequences for offenders. “The Mayor’s Office is at the table for every one of those efforts,” says Casarez, who has drafted a letter to Lazin to clarify the city’s efforts and attempt to address his concerns. As for the Boy Scouts, who don’t allow openly gay members or leaders, “this mayor has made it quite clear that he does not support that kind of discrimination in any way and we want it ended,” says Nutter Spokesman Mark McDonald. “What the city wants is to not be subsidizing what we see as anathema to our values in the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection.” Since the Scouts’ exclusion of gays violates Philadelphia’s anti-discrimination laws, the city in 2003 told the local Cradle of Liberty Council to shape up or lose the free rent it enjoys at its Logan Square headquarters. The Council agreed, only to be ordered by national headquarters to discriminate or else. In response, the city told the Scouts to pay rent or get out, but a lawsuit last year determined the Scouts’ constitutionally protected right to be homophobes is not a valid reason for eviction. Rather than pay nearly a million dollars in legal fees owed to the Scouts because of the ruling, the city opted to strike a still-pending deal to sell them the headquarters for $500,000, far less than market value (the city says the sales price is actually market value of $1.1 million, but with “other monies“ exchanged to compensate for legal fees). Activists are infuriated, feeling that Philly is essentially giving the Scouts a sweetheart land deal as a reward for bigotry. Duggan, Lazin and others contend that the city could still find a much more favorable arrangement. They might have a point. For one thing, even though the Nutter administration can’t evict the Scouts based on discrimination, they technically could find another reason, perhaps even one as simple as “we feel like it.” What’s more, the legal team defending the Scouts supposedly worked pro-bono, so there’s a question if the city really owes that $1 million in fees. Finally, the judgment in favor of the Scouts may have been rendered moot by a similar suit just five days later, when the Supreme Court decided that the University of California did not have to recognize a Christian group that excluded gays from membership. “We do believe it changes the legal landscape considerably,” says Stephen Glassman, chair of the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, on the Supreme Court decision. “If it had come down from highest court before [District Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter] rendered his decision, we

believe he would not have ruled in favor of the Scouts.” Most of the contended issues, McDonald says, are up to the courts to decide. The city still has the option to appeal if negotiations with the Scouts break down, at which point the question of legal fees, the California precedent and other eviction possibilities would all be back in play. However, the administration is trying to stay out of court by finding an agreement acceptable to all. “We’re trying to act as expeditiously as possible in light of the fact that the lawsuit went the way it did,” McDonald says. “I wouldn’t characterize this as a sweetheart deal in any way, shape or form.” The spokesman promises that the mayor is willing to meet with community leaders to explain and clarify his approach. At stake in all this, as Street pointed out, is the gay endorsement. Nutter won it in 2007—Queertimes was actually founded to support him during his mayoral run. “Our first issue was an endorsement of Mayor Nutter,” Duggan says. “We felt he would make an excellent mayor for us. We stuck our necks out and started a newsletter.” But now, Duggan says, his group will not endorse the mayor and would consider throwing its weight behind any other candidate who supports LGBT issues. Though it’s hard to pigeonhole how an entire “community” feels, especially one that encompasses such a diverse range of groups and experiences, Lazin says that the gay vote is likely to fall in line. “The LGBT community will vote as a block,” he says. “That’s understandable, given the fact that we’re at the epicenter of the civil-rights movement.” Using Census and polling data from neighborhoods with high concentrations of gay populations, Equality Forum estimates that about 70 percent of the queer vote went to Nutter in ’07—a bloc that could potentially be persuaded to take its ballots elsewhere. “There’s a large number of us who are spreading the word as quickly as possible that Mayor Nutter is not the candidate he once was,” Duggan says. The real test will come from the Liberty City Club, which was founded in 1994 to build queer political power and involvement. Nutter and any potential challengers seeking the Liberty City’s endorsement will have to meet with the group and complete a yet-to-be-created questionnaire on hot issues, which this year will surely include schools and Scouts. The group convenes in April to pick its candidate. Since Nutter is expected to cruise through the primary, and because Liberty City by charter can only endorse Democrats, the issue is mostly symbolic, but the group’s decision will be a good benchmark as to the mayor’s true progressive chops.

The secret ingredient in great cooking is love. Ask any chef, and they’ll tell you. They cook with love. With heart. With soul. With feeling. With passion. By now, these phrases are such well-worn clichés, they’ve all but lost their meaning. (Just try getting through an episode of Top Chef without a contestant or judge expounding on the tired trope.) But tired though it may be, it’s the truth. In order to cook well, you have to love it. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we’ve been thinking about love and food. Cooking with love. Eating food prepared with love. Loving eating food that’s lovingly prepared. Love, love, love. Food, food, food. Oh, and throw sex into that mix too. In this week’s Food Issue, we explore them all: Food, Love and Sex. We’ve asked chefs about the undeniable and forever linked relationship the three things share. We hear the tale of how cooking saved one chef’s life, and pulled him from the edge of despair. And we try to figure out, once and for all, whether or not oysters actually do help you fuck like a champ. Enjoy. By Brian McManus

b LOVE AND SEX

Kitchen Therapy How cooking pulled me from the brink of absolute despair and literally saved my life. By Tim McGinnis A month after I lost my job and four days before Christmas, my wife decided to leave me. I was a wreck. As I look back on that sad span of time, I realize that I was having what most people would describe as a nervous breakdown. I was drinking ungodly amounts of booze—so much beer, in fact, that I actually increased the GDP of Belgium by fourpercent; I got a thank-you letter from their president! I was crying all night, lying in bed for hours during the day paralyzed with depression, and searching for the reasons she gave up on us after eight years. I’ve never been a dramatic person. I prefer easygoing tranquility to high school melodrama. I never contemplated suicide in my life, but when I tell you that I wanted to die, I did. I was scaring myself.

A group of friends staged what can only be called a suicide watch for a few days. (For that I am forever thankful.) In particular, a young married couple I’ve been friends with for a long time drove me to central Pennsylvania and convinced me that leaving the ghosts behind for a while would be therapeutic. I’d also be able to avoid going home for the holidays to face those inevitable questions that would make me cringe the way “2 Girls 1 Cup” did: “How’s the wife? And the job is good, yeah?” So I holed up with them. We drank and cooked. You see, the three of us are chefs. And when chefs are down, they do what they are good at: cook, eat and drink; or drink, eat and cook; or drink, drink and drink. (Actually, chefs do that when they

aren’t down, too.) So I burdened the young couple and their family this past Christmas with my miserable self and cooked myself out of a crisis. Two days before Christmas, I woke up to the sound of hunters in my friends’ kitchen. I made my way downstairs, my eyes looking like two piss holes in the snow after the 12 or so beers I drank the night before. The 50 pounds of venison from their hunt this year was ground and ready to be formed into links. So we got to it, making sausage as we broke one another’s balls and self-deprecated. (It was a literal and figurative sausage party. There was something very primal and therapeutic about grinding the flesh of an animal my friend had shot. We gathered

knowing exactly how each one would react to heat, the familiarity of crispy bread in the oven ... that smell that reminds you of childhood. That nutty caramelized smell. I felt like a jazz musician. I felt like Jack Kerouac. I felt confident and finally proud of myself rather than down on myself. Then we ate. The pure pleasure and happiness was reflected on the faces of my friends as they ate the food I’d made. My spirits lifted more. That single moment on earth was a priceless and indescribable feeling. So I guess you could say I cooked my way out of my rabbit hole. Don’t get me wrong—I take a dip back in every now and again, but I’m no longer living with a noose around my neck. I have my knife to thank for that. And my apron. My sautee pan. My oven. And the skills I’ve learned over the past 13 years of earning a living over a hot stove. I got a new gig I’m very happy with. I’m even flirting with a new female. (Body heat is a hell of a craving). And so is the craving to cook, create and enjoy good food. Cook like your heart is broken. n

Schuylkill County, I’m used to certain sensibilities: eating with your elbows on the table, hunting apparel worn when not hunting, and lots of Yuengling Lager. There is one coal cracker tradition that is dear to me—Christmas Eve Boilo, a potent elixir made of citrus, spices and whiskey simmered slow and low atop the stove of every kitchen from Deer Lake to East Stroudsburg during the holidays. That night, I got a hold of my uncle and aunt and got their time-tested recipe. The Boilo warmed the cockles of my weary heart and even though I wasn’t home for the holiday, I felt closer to my family. Then I got to work on some stuffing. The zip of a serrated knife cutting through a big crusty loaf of bread ... the thwap, thwap, thwap of a knife on a wooden cutting board slicing celery and onion and garlic. The smells wafting through the kitchen, the heat of the burners. It’s a hypnotizing process. The repetition and progression of the whole cooking process soothed my aching heart and calmed my nerves. Sweating the vegetables in a pan,

to turkey legs. I broke down the turkey, first separating the legs from the body at the hip joint; I then slid my knife down each side of the breast bone and removed the breasts, then the wings at their joint. I moved quickly and efficiently. It felt like meditation. Fully concentrating on the task at hand, I released all negative emotion into the ether. I brined the breasts in a simple salt/sugar water solution and rubbed the legs and wings with salt, studded them with garlic and bay leaf. Afterward, I toasted and ground a handful of cloves and rubbed that on the legs and wings, too. I felt happy, inspired and lighter around the shoulders. I then realized, quite to my surprise, that I had been whistling while I worked, a spontaneous bout of happiness I no longer thought was possible just a few short days before. Small victories. The skills I’ve learned over a life of cooking were acting as a ladder I could climb to get out of the hole I was in. I could see a light. So I kept climbing. Even though I didn’t want to see my family out of fear of a panic attack, I still missed them. Growing up in the coal patches of

around our kill as tribesmen once did and made it into food—food that would feed and nourish us and our families. It made me feel like a whole man rather than the broken one my wife had left in her wake. I could feel my testicles start to grow back. The following day, Christmas Eve, my hosts left to finish some last-minute holiday shopping. I was alone for the first time in three days. A big believer in the “idle hands” adage, I opened a bottle of wine and tasked myself with prepping for Christmas dinner. Until that night, motivation and inspiration had been rare commodities, so I turned to an old friend for help. The book Charcuterie by Michael Ruhlman is a much-used culinary bible in my kitchen. I sat down and paged through my copy hoping something would pop out and push me to create. I flipped through the book and stopped dead on duck confit. I love old-school techniques. I’m perpetually inspired by terrine recipes, cheese making, smoking and, of course, sausage making. There is a real sense of love, history and family in food like that. I applied the confit method

Love Bites

Romantic Sips

Oysters, chocolate, tiger penis: Will eating these things really make you more viril? We investigate. By Michael Alan Goldberg

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY Februar y 9-15, 2011 • 14

In Peru, it’s customary for a man who wants to boost his sex drive to stick a particular Lake Titicaca frog—so wrinkly it looks like a scrotum—whole into a blender along with some hard liquor, whiz it up, and then gulp down this “Peruvian Viagra.” Throughout Southeast Asia, people swear by tiger penis or monkey penis soup, to the tune of several hundred U.S. dollars a bowl, to jumpstart their libido. Around these parts, you can get roughly the same effect with a 12-pack of Natty Ice. None of these things will be on the menu at City Food Tour’s fourth annual Valentine’s Aphrodisiac Dinner happening for the second year in a row this weekend at Café Estelle. But owner/chef Marshall Green, in conjunction with the CFT folks, is putting together a three-course meal designed to get you hungry for a roll between the sheets by incorporating more than 15 so-called “culinary aphrodisiacs.” CFT co-owner Eric Matzke, who’s hosting the event with business partner Robert Weinberg, has boned up on his aphrodisiac knowledge over the past few years. Turns out that despite the mythology surrounding the libidinous effects of oysters, chocolate and other foods, there is some historical validity to the power of aphrodisiacs. As Matzke explains, when the ancient Greeks and Romans had trouble making babies, they’d go to the local “sexpert” who recommended they eat all types of fish—the ocean was the most fertile place they knew—as well as foods from which life springs (eggs, seeds, nuts, bulbs like garlic), or food that resembled sexual organs, such as asparagus and oysters. “Their diet was terrible,” says Matzke, “and if you’re not getting the nutrients you need, the first thing that gets cut is libido and child production. But these foods that they were being prescribed, it upped peoples’ protein and healthy fats and all these vitamins and minerals that they weren’t getting in other ways. All of a sudden you’re healthier, so the libido starts coming back and bearing children is no problem.” So what about the claims that crop up from time to time that certain chemicals in foods—such as the theobroma in chocolate, which is said to trigger endorphins—can actually increase sexual desire? “The chocolate thing really is true,” says Matzke. “And asparagus has a lot of vitamin E and folic acid—both are great for sperm production. But the thing is, to see a spike to a really significant level that would impact sperm production, or make you feel so crazy happy that you feel like having sex, you’d have to eat 25 per-

“Some foods can create physical responses like sweating or your heart racing that’s akin to a state of arousal, so it connects you to your sexuality.”

cent of your body weight of those things.” Frankly, the only thing you’d want to do after eating that much asparagus is die, not get busy in the sack. Jenkintown sex therapist Patricia Rich says she hasn’t seen any studies that make a truly compelling scientific case for any particular food’s aphrodisiac effects. But since the brain is the biggest sex organ, she says it could be all in the mind and that’s OK. “If someone eats a plate of goat testicles, maybe they really will feel virile. If a food stimulates your belief and gives you some fortitude you didn’t have before, then it worked, didn’t it?” As Rich explains, one of the precursors to sex is relaxing and becoming more aware of all of your senses. “Enjoying a sensual meal together with some of these so-called aphrodisiacs would be terrific foreplay. Certain foods obviously bear resemblance to sexual organs or possibly even secretions. There’s texture and temperature—some foods have a creamy mouth feel, and spicy food can create physical responses like sweating or your heart racing that’s akin to a state of arousal, so it connects you to your sexuality.” Matzke says that Chef Green has taken all of that into account to create his own sensual meal. The first course is an arugula salad with pomegranate, avocado and passion fruit (“You’ve got pomegranate seeds bursting in your mouth, the velvety avocado, the spicy arugula which is firm, not limp…,” says Matzke). The second course, which Green will be demonstrating for those on hand, is linguini and shrimp with asparagus in a saffron-garlic-cream sauce (saffron being an aphrodisiac because it’s so expensive, and what’s hotter than someone spending lots of money on you?). And the dessert is a vanilla panna cotta with blood orange sorbet and assorted fruits—creamy and decadent, with more of those alluringly expensive ingredients. Aside from the lack of wrinkly frogs and monkey penises, fried foods are conspicuously absent from the menu, and the list of aphrodisiacs in general. “Anything that’s heavy and greasy with lots of trans fats and tons of carbs is going to make you feel sluggish and gross,” says Matzke. “Those things are not going to get you in the mood. Most of the aphrodisiacs we’re using are healthy foods, and when you start incorporating more of these foods into your diet you drop a few pounds, you get healthier, you feel good about yourself, maybe you start dressing slutty, and you’ve got more energy and more confidence. What’s hotter than that?” n

When it comes to Valentine’s Day drinking, the classics are often the way to go, especially when you’re trying to set the mood. So while baroque cocktail recipes and the latest wine producer to be name-checked on Entourage may work for the other 364 days of the year, getting back to basics is typically your best bet on Feb. 14. But that doesn’t mean hitting up the state store for the same suspect bottle you saw last week on the Chairman’s Selection display; instead, branch out and try something from the list below.

Port

Few drinks possess greater aphrodisiac qualities than Port. And no matter which style you buy—a deeply cherry-fruited Port like the Graham’s Six Grapes Reserve, a caramel-tinged tawny like the Warre’s Otima, dense and wine-like vintage Port—they’ll all work well with that other Valentine’s Day standard: Chocolate.

Martin Miller’s Gin

Gin has been making a comeback for years now, and the range of options out there can be dizzying. I’ve recently fallen in serious love with Martin Miller’s miraculous gin. It’s subtle and elegant, kissed with bright citrus and a whiff of gently sweet perfume, all of it wrapped up in a texture of astounding smoothness. A Valentine’s Day cocktail mixed with this gin is about as romantic and classic as V-Day drinking gets.

Four Roses Bourbon

While bourbon has traditionally had a reputation as a guy’s drink, the kind of spirit that inevitably leads to karaoke and stumbling home drunk—well, that’s just no longer the case. And while the big boys like Maker’s Mark and Knob Creek may get most of the bar-order love, bourbons like Four Roses are where the real fun is. For about $20, smallbatch and single-barrel bottlings deliver all the complexity you could hope for. Bourbon is finally getting the respect it deserves.

Rosé Champagne

Yeah, we know—pink Champagne is about the most Valentine’s Day-appropriate tipple there is. But just because you’ve had it before doesn’t mean there’s nothing left to discover. So instead of picking up the same old bottle of bubbly you do every year, try something new. From always excellent Bollinger to the just as reliable red-berry cobbler flavors of the Nicolas Feuillatte, these are perfect both on their own and alongside whatever you have for dinner—or breakfast, or lunch—on the big day. n

We asked the hottest chefs in the city what they cook when they’re feeling down, and what they cook when they’re trying to get down.

Comfort

Sex

What dish do you find you prepare most often to comfort yourself when going through a rough patch? “Comfort food to me is Chicken Curry Soup from Cafe de Laos and eating it on the couch with my wife. It has everything - a rich broth, hot - sour and sweet all at the same time. “I always love to make long slow braises as sort of therapy. I like to spend dreary winter afternoons at home in the kitchen listening to music having a glass of wine and prepping and cooking a pot roast or short ribs.” “I take an organic whole chicken, add onions, carrots, garlic, rosemary and thyme and fingerling potatoes, put it all in one pot to roast. It’s comforting because it makes the house smell warm and it tastes so satisfying.“ “Chicken and sausage pot pie, but please not the baked freezer section shit. It's gotta be boiled with dough squares, Pennsylvania Dutch-style, just like Mom makes at home in York, Pa.” “Any hearty soup served with a good crusty bread would do the trick”

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY

“Pasta with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt. I grew up eating a lot of pasta and my dad always had a box of kosher salt, not a shaker, a box—so that reminds me of home.”

“OK, to comfort myself there is no cooking involved, simply open a fresh box of Cheez-It!”

“My great grandmother's chicken pot pie. It's never as good as hers but is still very comforting."

“I asked my wife this question, and she answered 'forget about the dinner, all I need is chocolate cake.’”

“I like to heat things up with a homemade Thai Red Curry with cool coconut milk. The perfect fire and ice starter for an evening of indulgences.”

t’s no coicidence that we use the word “chemistry” in conjunction with “sexual.” In 1956, a team of German researchers removed a certain gland from a female silkworm moth and waved it in front of male moths, who would promptly freak out, bouncing around and fluttering their wings in that eternal dance called “Where the ladies at?” That was the discovery of pheremones, and they’re not just for moths, either —if you’ve ever wondered why your partner seems to just smell right, even though you couldn’t really put that smell into words, you might be interested in this talk by Dr. Johan Lundström. He heads up the Cognitive Neuroimaging Lab at the Monell Chemical Sense Center, which has been looking into how pheremones affect human behavior, and how that “right” smell actually comes from a complex set of olfactory data about genetics.

ICA Free For All Wallets are empty. The unemployed aimlessly wander the streets. It’s uncertain how long our way of life can continue. Hope is the opium of the people. However. Admission to the Institute of Contemporary Art is free every day of the year. Thrown by the Student Board, the semi-annual “Free For All” celebrates the unending freeness. Examining and blurring the limits of an increasingly outmoded distinction, Senior Curator Ingrid Schaffner kicks off with a lecture titled “The Artist as Curator.” A DIY Valentine’s project will provide the tools and guidance needed to create cards for all your lovers. Then the museum walls will rumble from the trance-inducing war zone created by Blues Control, the Philadelphia-founded avant-duo of Russ Waterhouse and Lea Cho.

Ignite Philly 7 So you’d like to learn something new, hear about other people’s projects and passions,

or simply be entertained, but you have the attention span of a gnat. Solution: Ignite Philly. The local seventh edition of this popular global phenomenon—similar events are happening in 100 cities this weekend, all of them streaming live online—brings entrepreneurs, dreamers, tech geeks, self-help gurus, academics, comedians and more to the stage. The catch is that each presenter has just five minutes to hit it and quit it, aided by 20 slides that run 15 seconds each—meaning you’ll have a chance to hear dozens of folks talk about every topic under the sun (past events have featured everything from car-buying advice to the history of Internet bulletin boards to building a multi-person pogo stick to sneaky ways to win at Scrabble). As Ignite puts it: “Enlighten us, but make it quick.” Hopefully some of it will stick. All proceeds from tonight’s event go to former Ignite Philly presenters South Philly Food Co-op. michael

Abe Vigoda the actor is so damn old, we’re pretty sure his grandchildren are well into their 60s by now. But Abe Vigoda and Grandchildren the bands are veritable babies. Around since 2003, L.A.’s Abe Vigoda started out as a chaotic art-punk outfit sorta like fellow Angelenos No Age, but evolved first to a sort of tropicaliapunk/Afropop thing (like a much better Vampire Weekend) with 2008’s Skeleton, and then to a dark Cure/New Order vibe on their new album, Crush. West Philly sextet Grandchildren, meanwhile, have become one of the city’s most vibrant music entities with their recently issued debut, Everlasting, which shoehorns experimental guitars, synths and polyrhythmic beats into symphonic arrangements that never fail to impress. m.a.g. 8pm. $10-$12.

Tonight’s triple bill showcases our local experimental-music scene’s diversity and vibrancy. Alban Bailly, a member of emerging local quartet Inzinzac who has also worked with avant-garde heavyweights Alvin Curran and Tony Buck, begins with a solo performance for guitar. An aleatoric dialogue between percussionist/ electronicist Julius Masri and Buchla Music Easel specialist Charles Cohen follows. For the finale, Many Arms bassist John DeBlase teams up with Millevoi, trumpeter Joe Moffett, and drummer Dave Flaherty for an improvised encounter expressing the young composer’s wide-ranging sonic palette, from Schoenberg’s serialism to Ornette Coleman’s centurychanging jazz. e.s. 8pm. $6.

69 Love Songs Live Karaoke The Magnetic Fields’ epic three-disc 69 Love Songs has some titles that don’t scream candy hearts and teddy bears: “No One Will Ever Love You.” “I Can’t Touch You Anymore.” “How Fucking Romantic.” And “I Don’t Want to Get Over You,” perhaps the most pathetic audial wallow since Dusty Springfield recorded “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.” But, as some dude once said, love is a manysplendored thing, and 69 Love Songs is just a celebration of the full spectrum—from sad to happy, from unrequited to... requited, from “A Chicken with Its Head Cut Off” to “Zebra.” This will be the second live karaoke version of the album put on by South Philly’s artist space Cha-Cha’Razzi, and we’ve rarely seen the Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan Area having a better time than they did last year supplying guest vocals above the musical and

Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Release Party

Rhys Chatham Brass Trio

Having mined the terrain between postminimalism and punk from the ’70s onward, composer Rhys Chatham has announced his obsessions via a number of recent titles. He followed Guitar Trio Is My Life! (2008) with a piece from The Bern Project (2010) called “Is There Life After Guitar Trio?” Answer? Yes, and it’s called the Brass Trio—not three brass instruments, but rather Chatham on trumpet and electronics, David Daniell on guitar and Ryan Sawyer on drums. A solo trumpet disc, Outdoor Spell, is coming in April from Northern-Spy Records. Philly’s Ars Nova Workshop has managed to snag one of Chatham’s three U.S. tour dates (he expatriated to France in the ’80s), so here’s the chance to savor his unique bridging of oceanic expanse and nettlesome noise.

Higdon Violin Concerto While the Daily News’ Pulitzer win for their investigative “Tainted Justice” series got the lion’s share of local press, it wasn’t the only local Pulitzer. Composer and Curtis prof Dr. Jennifer Higdon won for her Violin Concerto, written for classical star Hilary Hahn (who was in Higdon’s 20th-century music class 10 years ago when she was a Curtis student). Hahn will take the lead in its Philly premiere in a performance with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, before both take it north to Carnegie Hall. The concerto will be sandwiched between Hindemith’s Konzertmusik and Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, a program that suggests the work’s eventual place among the modern classics; this is a pretty rare opportunity to see a future staple on the original soloist and composer’s home turf—and to get your CD signed by both afterward.

Smoothly transitioning between The Stooges and the science of mise en place, Anthony Bourdain built a reputation on punk-rock honesty and culinary wisdom. Tonight he brings both ingredients to the Keswick Theatre for a behind-the-scenes look at the wild life of a food adventurer. While the term “foodie” emerged two decades earlier, his New York Times bestseller, Kitchen Confidential, initiated a new stage in the proliferation of “foodie” culture. As Marx spelunked the guts of a factory in Capital, Bourdain exposed the underbelly of the bourgeois dining establishment by revealing the hustlers, drunks and cretins hidden in the back of the house.

Like castaways on a deserted island who finally spot a passing ship, video game junkies, comic-book nerds and animation aficionados have their prayers answered today. That’s because after a decade of waiting, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3: The Fate of Two Worlds—the follow-up to 2000’s mega-popular Marvel Vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes—arrives in stores. In a nutshell, MvC3 pits Marvel characters like Wolverine, Captain America and Iron Man against characters from Capcom’s Street Fighter, Resident Evil and other iconic games in a fight to the death. British gaming mag GamesMaster says MvC3 “bring[s] comic books to life on your TV” and is “the most explosive, OTT, fan-pleasing 2D fighting game the world’s ever seen.” Which means there’ll be plenty of excitement—and probably some pushing and shoving over the controllers—this afternoon at the great South Philly Comics, which is hosting an MvC3 release party complete with PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to play on four screens, and a round-robin tournament as well. Get there early—it’s gonna be a madhouse. M.a.G.

Comparisons between long-running Brit triphop/groove outfit Morcheeba and the CocaCola corporation are quite apropos. Just like that conglomerate’s ill-fated decision to screw with their popular formula and unleash New Coke, Morcheeba founding brothers Ross and Paul Godfrey booted original vocalist Skye Edwards from the band in 2003 and moved in boring musical directions with a stable of different singers. It was more or less a disaster, since Edwards’ sultry voice, merged with Ross’s funk/blues guitar and Paul’s crisp downtempo beats, formed an unbeatable chemistry. Fortunately, the Godfreys saw the errors of their ways and reunited with Edwards in late 2009. Last summer’s Blood Like Lemonade is a welcome return to the “classic” Morcheeba sound. M.a.G.

Drain pasta: Jenny Drumgoole assembles cream-cheese pasta in the sink in one of the video recipes she submitted to the for-real contest "Real Women of Philadelphia."

Cheese Whiz

Jenny Drumgoole’s funny, strange videos at Moore.

By Roberta Fallon rfallon@philadelphiaweekly.com

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY Februar y 9-15, 2011 • 26

Vaseline has a major role in Matthew Barney’s Cremaster films. For Paul McCarthy, it’s chocolate syrup. And for Jenny Drumgoole, Philadelphia Cream Cheese is the goo that makes the world go ’round. The local artist and Yale MFA’s video exhibit Jenny Drumgoole: Real Woman of Philadelphia skewers a cheesy online videorecipe contest: “Real Women of Philadelphia,” sponsored by Kraft with butter-loving cooking-show host Paula Deen. It’s a funny indictment of projects like this that seem warm and fuzzy but have hearts of cold, corporate cash. Between March and August 2010, Drumgoole submitted video recipes (now collected and on display in the gallery) to the contest. They have a Rambo-like framework in which Mom Drumgoole gives her daughter a mission: Enter and win the “Real Women of Philadelphia” contest so Mom can get her cookbooks autographed. Jenny goes about this in character as a fictionalized, victoryobsessed version of herself, by turns engaging, dreamy and semi-psychotic. Of course, the magic here is that Drumgoole’s submissions are art videos that are goofing on the contest—and that instead of being mocked, they developed a big cult following among the more serious contestants, who seem to both get the parody and find it hilarious. Drumgoole’s videos got tons of overwhelmingly positive comments (many with a lot of exclamation points!!!!!!!) and feedback from fellow contestants. For example, Drumgoole often shakes her long red hair at the camera in sexy, ridiculous slo-mo—she bends all the way over, then rises up with a vigorous shake like a shampoo spokesmodel, ending in a hugely smiling pose with a carton of Philadelphia Cream Cheese in her hand. (This conflation of sex, hair and cream cheese is the best Kraft commercial Kraft will never make.)

Many of the ladies in the contest for real clearly found this hilarious, and posted video responses of themselves doing similar hair flips. Drumgoole edited these into a “dessert recipe” (ingredients: 8 ounce(s) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, 31 Awesome RWoP ladies, 1 amazing love for Ms. Paula) that’s obviously just an overwrought karaoke version of Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again on My Own” with the substitution of lyrics about glorious hair. It’s so subversive about the contest and product that it’s a wonder the video’s still up on the website. Even Paula Deen wrote favorably about Jenny’s videos—or, at least, someone whose job it is to pretend to be her online did. In a video that’s a sort of coda to the project (unlike the still-online recipes, this is exclusive to the exhibit), Jenny and her mom meet Deen at a book-signing in Delaware; Deen clearly has no idea who Jenny is. Not exactly surprising, but it’s hard not to sympathize with fans facing the reality of celebrity. But nothing beats Drumgoole’s recipes. In one, she fashions 20 of the white bricks into a bust of Rambo that looks like it was sculpted by a disturbed 7-year-old. The head then speaks (out of a stop-motion mouth made of red peppers) a message about your cunning and powerful primitive self as Drumgoole consumes it forkful by forkful, hair blowing in the breeze. (A facsimile of the head, presumably not made out of dairy products, is in the exhibit.) A Mother’s Day teacake calls for pickles, marshmallows, balsamic vinaigrette, tomatoes, pasta sauce, walnuts and, of course, cream cheese. A pasta Caprese is the most off-putting dish, as it’s assembled in the bathroom using the sink, toilet and tub. The dish is stirred with a toothbrush, chopped with a hairbrush and heated with a blowdryer. This one alone will put you off cream cheese for a while (and cooking in general; possibly bathrooms, too). You wouldn’t mistake Drumgoole’s videos for serious recipes any more than you’d mistake Monty Python’s Ministry of Silly Walks for the Ministry of Defense, although she pays great attention to some realistic details. For example, Drumgoole is always holding a plastic tumbler of some unspecified dark liquid, which she sips through a straw. I thought this was darn peculiar until watching a clip from Deen’s show in which she holds an identical cup, beverage and straw. Life is sometimes weirder than art. While the artist’s playfulness comes across in her videos, her serious intent is on display in a timeline, affixed to the wall, which shows that by the project’s end in August 2010, Kraft had a 5 to 8 percent increase in cream-cheese sales. The corporation will be doing even more marketing this way—it works. n Jenny Drumgoole: Real Woman of Philadelphia Through March 15.

Grace Gonglewski as Josie and Eric Hissom as Jim in A Moon for the Misbegotten.

A Full Moon

Arden finally nails O'Neill.

By J. Cooper Robb jrobb@philadelphiaweekly.com Since 1988, the Arden Theatre Company has mounted works by everyone from Shakespeare to Sondheim (both of whom have been staged multiple times), but never a play by Eugene O’Neill. He’s finally welcomed to the Arden’s stage with the company’s admirable mounting of the great American playwright’s final work A Moon for the Misbegotten. It would be misleading to say director Matt Pfeiffer’s production is worth the wait—29 years is, after all, a lot to make up for when you’re talking about neglecting (arguably) America’s greatest dramatist. Still, there’s a great deal to applaud. O’Neill began writing Moon, the last play he completed, in 1942, shortly after finishing his semiautobiographical masterwork Long Day’s Journey into Night. It acts as something of a sequel to Night—and is also generally regarded as a tender goodbye to the playwright’s older brother Jamie, on whom main characters in Night and Moon were based. Jamie O’Neill, like Night’s Jamie Tyrone and Moon’s older incarnation Jim Tyrone, struggled with alcohol; in 1923 he died in a sanitarium a broken, penniless man in the late stages of delirium tremens. And the plays based on him are about as sunny as you might expect. Moon takes place on a run-down farm, home to the poor, hardworking Hogan family but owned by Jim Tyrone Jr. (Eric Hissom). Phil Hogan (H. Michael Walls) and his daughter Josie (Grace Gonglewski) have an amicable relationship with their landlord, but don’t exactly trust him. Jim is an alcoholic, and far from a charming drunk. He’s promised the land to Phil at a reduced price, but a neighbor, oil baron T. Stedman Harder (Allen Radway) is willing to pay five times as much. Phil worries that in a booze-induced stupor Jim will forget their agreement. But it’s the affectionate relationship between Jim and Josie that interests O’Neill. It’s more affection than romance—Josie’s a big farm girl, described by O'Neill as a 5’11”, 180-pound “ugly cow of a woman,” who

believes herself too unattractive to qualify for love; Jim’s an alcoholic mama’s boy well on his way to squandering his life. Phil sees a union between the two as a solution to both the family’s money problems and Josie’s loneliness, and schemes to get them together one way or another. But Jim is used to bars and Broadway tarts. With Josie, he’s looking for something else. Hissom lays the foundation for his Jim early in the play. Although he’s a relatively young actor, his Jim is far from spry. Looking close to death, Hissom gives Jim the perpetual aches and pains not of an old man, but of a chronic alcoholic. Moving stiffly across the farm’s front yard, he awkwardly bends and falls/sits on the porch’s front step. When Josie later describes his lips as akin to “kissing a corpse,” we can feel what she means. Gonglewski is neither bovine nor an “ugly, overgrown lump of a woman,” as O’Neill further describes Josie, but she pulls off the character’s disenchanted gruffness well. But still more important is her ability to communicate Josie’s inner beauty and warmth. Gonglewski doesn’t portray the near-mythic mother figure often associated with the role, but a caring woman whose tough exterior masks a feminine and surprisingly vulnerable soul. It’s another fine performance from an actress who has been a key figure in Philly’s theater revival, and her Josie is one of many reasons to attend. Of equal importance is Pfeiffer, who in the past decade has become one of the city’s most talented theater artists (though he directs here, he’s also a more than capable actor). His Moon is atmospheric, emotionally intense and easily the swiftest production of this work I’ve ever seen, a fast-paced, high-stakes affair. Pfeiffer’s unrestrained production allows the extremes of emotion in the play’s final act to pour out, and we too are emotionally drained by the end. For all the emotional angst conjured by Gonglewski and Hissom, the best moments in the production involve the quiet passage of time. Courtesy of Thom Weaver’s magnificent lighting design, scenic designer Mathew Saunders and sound designer James Sugg, we watch as the house sits alone and light drains from the day as a piano plaintively plays. There’s a moment of dusk, and as twilight segues into black night, the amber lights in the house take hold and spill out the windows and through the cracks in the wood shingles. Later, after Josie and Jim have spent the night bonding with the moon, each other and a bottle of bourbon, Josie sits on the porch with Jim asleep in her lap, watching as dawn breaks over the yard. It’s a moment of almost unearthly beauty in which you can almost believe in absolution— but not quite. n A Moon for the Misbegotten Through Feb. 27. $29-$48. Arden Theatre, 40 N.

It’s a little tough to imagine now, in what feels like the 15th godforsaken week of February we’ve had to endure so far this year, but come summertime, Newport, R.I., is a wonder. Take a walk along the city’s storied Cliff Walk, and you can teeter up to the edge of a craggy path, let your feet dangle high over the water, and break off flinted pieces of rock to toss into the Easton Bay. As you watch them disappear into the blue New England waters below you, it’s easy to imagine finding magic in the town. David Wax certainly found it. “Without a doubt it was a real watershed moment for the band,” Wax says of playing last year’s Newport Folk Festival. “It was definitely a turning point.” He and his eponymous band, the David Wax Museum, won an opportunity to play a set at the legendary festival by mobilizing an ever-growing fan base. Once they got there, they weren’t about to let the opportunity slip. “We knew no one would have heard of us, and no one would necessarily come to see the band,” he says. “So we just tried to meet as many people as we could and told them when we were playing”—at a not-ideal opening set on Sunday morning. So they started pounding the pavement—er, grass—and set to busking. Wherever they saw a line—people waiting to get on buses, say—they’d start playing, just to generate excitement. They brought fans in from their native Boston, and did an early TV interview on Friday. By the time their set came around, the field was packed. “Since we’ve toured so much, we think of ourselves as a band that’s really comfortable acoustically,” Wax recalls. “So we went out in the crowd and played, and nobody else did that at Newport. It caught people off-guard, and it felt great. It felt like the band’s moment.” Before the weekend was over, they’d be onstage with Levon Helm of the Band singing “The Weight,” along with the Felice Brothers, Alexander Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and more. By that point they’d won over public radio tastemakers Bob Boilen (of NPR’s All Songs Considered) and WFUV’s Rita Houston. At the festival’s

 fter a handful of years building up their A stellar live rep through word of mouth and opening slots for the likes of the Roots and Wu-Tang Clan, Germantown’s own Writtenhouse—easily one of the best hiphop outfits Philly currently has to offer— finally unleashes its debut LP, While You Were Sleeping, on Feb. 15 (2.15, get it?) and celebrates the release with a show at Kung Fu Necktie this Saturday night. We caught up with members Charlie K., Kush Shalimar, and Chris Conway to talk about the trials and triumphs of getting the album out to the people.

literally had to start from scratch. It was one of the most challenging experiences we had to go through as a group but I’m kind of glad it happened. It showed us how well we work under pressure.

We have the hardest critics and some of the most talented people—that’s not by coincidence. Even if you are the illest MC, there’s no doubt you still will have to go 150 percent for a Philly crowd. That’s just how it is. But it creates a fine-tuned artist that can stand up to any crowd and give ’em what they want. It really makes room for the best of the best. You combine that with the raw talent and vibe that dwells here in the City of Brotherly Love and you get history.” Kush:“I believe that yes, we could have tried to make it in another city, but the overall blanket of hunger and soul that Philadelphia naturally provides I’m sure consumes 90 percent of our music.”

 scape the Fate were never very good, E but their Geffen debut’s an epic Cleveland Steamer. The Las Vegas quartet’s first two albums for Epitaph suggested a middling punk-pop act whose screamo tendencies had all but disappeared by 2008’s This War Is Ours. It charted, and after a major label makeover they emerged as metal’s answer to Alkaline Trio, complete with eerie horror movie synths and rotting lyrical matter. The bellowing and breakdowns return, abetted by a schizophrenic grab bag of stylistic hard rock tics recalling at different times My Life in the Thrill Kill Kult, Mötley Crüe and Dream Theatre. You couldn’t produce a more pretentious, cheese-laden load of crap if you dipped Billy Corgan in Velveeta. Where do brooding, eyeliner-sporting youth go when Twilight fades?

There’s something cinematic about Nina’s Trattoria. Its story—passionate amateur cook with some on-the-line restaurant experience opens up a cozy neighborhood spot, sends out the food of his childhood, and pays homage to his family through their recipes and photographs on the walls— sounds like something Meg Ryan might have starred in back when her face showed more charm than Botox. And the timing seems right for a project like this: In an age when lawyers’ futures aren’t quite as bright (or as green) as they once were, the symbolism of well-known (and still well-employed) defense attorney Nicholas Nastasi opening a restaurant as he tailors back his practice, replacing his workday suits for a dinner-service apron, is darn near irresistible. Since opening back in October, this Italian Market BYO has found itself relatively busy, and it’s not difficult to see why. It’s the kind of place anyone can stop by and feel perfectly comfortable, engage in the sort of cross-table banter that livens up any dining room, and leave satisfied. And while there’s still a bit of work to be done in the kitchen, none of the shortcomings are of the sort that set off warning bells. Seasoning was a problem that popped up sporadically throughout the menu. Still, even the most egregious instance didn’t ruin a dish of linguine with shrimp and arugula; it simply rendered it bland, little different from what most home cooks might whip up on a weekday night. What did set it apart, however, was Nastasi’s evident ability with cooking temperature: The shrimp had been shown just enough heat to cook through, but not a moment longer; the arugula was still its fresh vivid green. The pasta, if a touch more done than ideal al dente, still found itself far

Winter blues be damned. There’s mass drinking to be done. The third annual Winter Beer Fest—a tasting event featuring about 70 mostly new cold-weather craft beers—is back after a rocky start and a change of date and venue. Bring your Seasonal Affective Disorder to the table, and sip a diverse array of spiced ales and winter warmers from each vendor, showcasing one seasonal beer and one produced year-round, during one of two extended drink sessions this Saturday, Feb. 12, from 1-5 p.m. and 6-10 p.m. Tix are $40 until Feb. 11, and $50 at the door. Winter beers, produced for a limited time around November, offer a bigger, bolder (read: maltier, experimentally hoppy, more intoxicating) taste than rest-of-theyear brews, and give breweries a chance to fire up their creative spirits once a year. “It keeps the master brewers interested in their craft,” says Barry Mulherin, one of the co-founders of the Beer Fest, and owner of Barry’s Homebrew Outlet. Newcomer brews Mulherin’s particularly excited about showcasing include 21st Amendment’s Fireside Chat and Black IPA, Stone’s Double Bastard from California, and Central Waters Mudpuppy porter. “I tried one of those the other day, man was that good!,” says Mulherin. The origins of the Beer Fest, headed by rabid beer enthusiasts Mulherin and friend Troy Timpel, began when, each winter, they would chip in money with friends to buy the myriad different one-off seasonal brews available, and divide them up amongst themselves. This beer geek tradition between friends sparked the idea for the first Winter Beer Fest three years ago. It’s grown each year since. This year, it’s being held at the Electric Factory, after a PLCB hiccup involving original venue Starlight Ballroom forced Mulherin and Timple to change the date and venue. Old printed tickets are valid for entry. Volunteers to pour the beer at the fest are all handpicked from Mulherin’s homebrew clientele, knowledgable beer lovers who hope to spread the new-brew gospel to potential converts from each vendor’s table. “It’s a lot of fun,” Mulherin says. “It’s like the new wine. There are so many different flavors and so many different intricacies of the brewing process, and people get really excited by this. It’s actually a cultlike following of craft beer.” Take a swig from the seasonal Kool-Aid, and join the craft-beer-loving masses as they toast to last-minute recoveries, bold new tastes and the joys of wintertime warmth. n

short of overcooked. I just kept wishing for more salt, more red pepper flakes, more flavor. It was tantalizingly, frustratingly close to successful. Other dishes suffered less from seasoning (or lack thereof) and more as a result of flavors that didn’t quite define themselves as clearly as they should have. Roasted peppers stuffed with cubed bread, pecorino and herbs, for instance, would have been a perfect treat at a friend’s home. For $7, though, I wanted cleaner flavors and a less aggressive, less dense bread filling. A side of grilled leeks, while on the money in terms of flavor and texture—their aroma spread across the table like some kind of sweet-smoky perfume—was just too small a portion. But other dishes won me over, and explain Nina’s appeal. Asparagus patties made stellar use of a vegetable that, elsewhere, has grown a bit tiresome by this time of year. Chopped, bound with bread crumbs and egg, and given a propulsive salty lift by a generous addition of pecorino, these were essentially asparagus fritters, and singlehandedly justify lugging along a bottle of Prosecco to sip alongside. Fagoletti demonstrated how adept Nastasi and his team are with even less familiar preparations. Homemade and thin as a crepe, these fagoletti were bound up, purse-style, with a scallion, and carried within their center a deeply satisfying puree of sauteed asparagus and zucchini as well as mozzarella from Claudio’s. It was flat-out simple and successful, as was the homemade ricotta gnocchi, whose fluffiness often eludes chefs who have been rolling them out for years. Well-conceived eggplant parmesan was anchored by thin grilled slices of the vegetable, which meant they didn’t have to cook as long, and as a result remained a bit snappier than thicker slices typically end up. Layered with fresh basil, tomatoes and mozzarella, this dish easily avoided the pitfalls that mar too many eggplant preparations: The sponging up of olive oil. The marinara sauce it was presented atop— sweet, a bit tart—brightened up a number of dishes on offer. Lamb chops, another recent special, were simply prepared with a confidence that gives me hope for the dishes that aren’t quite there yet. A rub of garlic, parsley, mustard and olive oil raised an otherwise uncomplicated dish above its individual components. Forked with a side dish of brussels sprouts shimmery with the fat of their accompanying pancetta, they were a highlight. And while there’s often only one dessert on offer, silky, almost cake-textured cream puffs won me over. If you have a bottle of limoncello laying around, and if you find out before leaving the house that these will be on the menu, bring it along. It’d make a brilliant combination. So while Nina’s does have a bit to go before it really hits its stride, it’s a lovely addition to the neighborhood—a friendly, cheery spot for a pleasant meal, and the physical embodiment of a hope so many people have: To live out their dream one day, no matter what they’re doing right now. In that regard, Nastasi has hit a home run. n

SIX PACK

Six Sets of Bad Parents By Matt Prigge mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com

Female Trouble (1974): The annals of cinema are packed with awful parents. Thing is, there’s usually just one: Carrie White’s mom, Mallory Knox’s dad, Angela Lansbury in The Manchurian Candidate. Surely two evil parents is worse. Divine’s Dawn Davenport—one of many, many questionable caretakers in the John Waters canon—is a poor enough mother to teenager Taffy (Mink Stole) even before she weds scuzzy stylist Gator (Michael Potter). When Taffy catches them in bed, Gator naturally asks her to join the festivities. Time Bandits (1981): Little Kevin’s parents are so enraptured with their swanky TV and appliances they don’t notice their imaginative son has ventured into a series of time portals with a gang of midgets. Is their abrupt explosion at the end really such a bad thing? This wasn’t the last time Terry Gilliam explored casual parenting: Tideland’s Jeff Bridges and Jennifer Tilly both OD before the second act, leaving their bright daughter alone in a remote house.

Parents (1989): Well before he and his own wife descended into conjoined insanity, Randy Quaid gave a miraculously sinister performance as a dad who, along with wife Mary Beth Hurt, feeds his blank-faced son human meat.

The People Under the Stairs (1991):

Matilda (1996): Director Danny DeVito doesn’t hold back on the atrocities carried out by Roald Dahl’s most heinous parents (played by DeVito and Rhea Perlman), who are so openly hostile to their daughter’s precocious intelligence that they only allow her to attend school once they discover the principal is a sadistic, child-hurling beast.

ou can gain an unfair advantage in your office Oscar Pool by checking out the Academy Award Nominated Short Films at the Ritz this week. A few years ago, the clever folks at Magnolia Pictures began releasing these Short Films to theaters before the Awards broadcast, and I’ve quite enjoyed finally being able to understand what the people on stage are talking about during that part of the show when everybody usually just goes to the bathroom or talks amongst themselves.

Live Action Grade: B+

Animation Grade: C Alas, the Animated program is not nearly as consistent this year. Everybody in the world already saw the obligatory Pixar short, Day & Night, when it played before Toy Story 3 last summer. I was, however, surprised this time at how much of this charming little ditty’s visual luster was lost without the deep-focus 3-D effects. The Gruffalo boasts a marquee cast, with Helena Bonham Carter, Rob Brydon, John Hurt and Tom Wilkinson voicing twee woodland creatures in a rather labored adaptation of a popular children’s book. It feels like a kid’s television special, which later investigation of the press kit informed me that it is. The keeper here is Andrew Ruhemann’s and Shaun Tan’s The Lost Thing, a melancholy, impressionistic story of a young boy who befriends an oddball giant that looks like some sort of tea kettle with tentacles. The movie is haunted with an aura of sadness, as a visually stunning world populated by fantastical creatures gradually fades into workaday reality as our protagonist moves toward adulthood. The metaphor is no less powerful for being so obvious. n

37

By far the best in this year’s bunch is Wish 143, Ian Barnes’ raunchy, offhandedly poignant tale of David (Samuel Peter Holland), a rough-around-theedges 15-year-old soccer-hooligan dying of terminal cancer. The caseworker from a local Make-A-Wish-Foundation gets more than he bargained for when he asks for David’s final request: Dude just really wants to get laid. Navigating a potentially icky premise with sublime confidence, writer Tom Bidwell and director Barnes mine David’s

determination not to die a virgin for the expected laughs, while still granting a sad dignity to his mission. The fine British character-actor Jim Carter co-stars as David’s unlikely sidekick, a Catholic priest who works at the hospital dispensing wisdom with earthy, often irreverent panache. The two have such a relaxed rapport, and the other relationships in Wish 143 are so finely detailed, these scant 24 minutes have the richness and emotional arc of a featurelength film, with an ending that moved me to tears. Expect more great things from Bidwell and Barnes in the future. Catholicism looms even larger over director Tanel Toom’s The Confession, a shock tragedy so poker-faced I’m unsure if he’s kidding or not. Baby-faced 9-year-old Sam (Lewis Howlett) is about to make his first confession, but worries that he doesn’t have enough sins to confess. To remedy this, he and bullying best friend Jacob steal a neighbor’s scarecrow for a stupid prank that takes an unexpectedly horrific turn. Halfway to black comedy, it’s full of over-ripe religious iconography that makes me worry Toom might actually be sincere. Still, The Confession is elegantly assembled, and the striking widescreen compositions yield two or three terrific jolts. Michael Creagh’s The Crush similarly skirts the edge of WTF. Precocious 8-yearold Ardal Travis (Oren Creagh, the filmmaker’s nephew) intends to marry his lovely

things—a fourth was ostracized due to disobedience—have been raised by their parents to never leave their massive estate, having been fed lies about the horrors of the outside world. Like that cute cats kill. Or that “pussy” means a big lamp. Or that Frank Sinatra is their grandfather. Justly Oscarnominated, this Greek bugfuck is on Netflix Instant. Watch it now. n

Twin Peaks’ Big Ed (Everett McGill) and Nadine (Wendy Robie) reunite as sibling lovers who procreate frequently but critically: Any inbred child born with imperfections is summarily sent to the basement. And it’s packed down there.

Short and sweet: Contenders for the Academy Awards' Live Action films include Wish 143, left, and The Crush.

schoolteacher Miss Purdy (Olga Wherly), and doesn’t take it well when she instead accepts the proposal of a loutish jerk that young Ardal deems unacceptable. The child’s single-minded determination and access to handguns suggest that his surname callback to Taxi Driver’s Travis Bickle is not entirely coincidental, and the whole fun of The Crush is wondering just how far Creagh is going to push it. Luke Matheny, the writer-director and star of God of Love has a gangly, Goldblumesque confidence that belies his awkward appearance. A suave crooner who shoots darts while singing nightclub standards in a Brooklyn bar room full of skinny ties, his Raymond Goodfellow would probably be insufferable were it not for Matheny’s offkilter charisma. He’s head over heels in love with his band’s drummer (Marian Brock), who unfortunately happens to have already fallen for their guitar player (Christopher Hirsh.) But after receiving a mysterious package containing magical romance-inducing darts, Raymond becomes the hipster cupid, able to bring happiness to everyone but himself. A Charlie Kaufman conceit by way of Jim Jarmusch’s deadpan cool, God of Love is the most technically accomplished short in the program. Shot primarily at nighttime in sumptuous black-and-white, Methany’s script makes room for a couple of sly observations about a hopeless romantic’s tendency to over-idealize—wondering when we’re in love, and when we’re just in love with the idea of being in love.

Screen New Releases The Eagle

CReviewed by Matt Prigge Last fall, Neil Marshall’s Centurion depicted, with the aid of roughly 30 gallons of arterial spray, Rome’s doomed Ninth Legion, who confidently marched into northern England and were gorily dispatched with by its pitiless tribes. The opening crawl of The Eagle is almost verbatim that of Centurion, but rather than be rewarded with Jimmy McNulty and Lt. Archie Hickox fucking up (and being fucked up by) savages, audiences receive Duke from G.I. Joe and Billy Elliot on a PG-13-rated quest for (wait for it) a golden emblem. Seriously: an emblem. His scant hair coated in what appears to be the world’s earliest prototype of gel, Channing Tatum plays the son of a perished Ninth Legion commander seeking to restore honor to the family name and to his tainted empire. Aided by a vindictive British slave

(Jamie Bell), whom he earlier whimsically saved from a gladiator’s sword, he journeys into the dangerous sealed-off nether-regions in pursuit of the aforementioned nationalist symbol. If it can boast nothing else, The Eagle at least has the distinction of being one of the very few films to take a basically pro-Roman Empire stance. Traditionally the debased bad guy, it’s depicted here as slightly misguided but basically decent, with Tatum’s stolid fighter—who, like all Roman characters, speaks with a suspicious Yank accent—a florid patriot who winds up reigniting pride in the Ninth Legion survivors his quest turns up. This fervent nationalism might be perturbing if The Eagle wasn’t an utter bore. Documentarian-turned-fictionalist (and not the Kid in the Hall) Kevin MacDonald has been handed pure pulp—the source is the ’50s adventure tome The Eagle of the Ninth—yet he’s treated it in the same pseudo-serious manner as his The Last King of Scotland. Unfortunately, Tatum is no Forest Whitaker. More so than usual, he’s a slab of meat, and so unresponsive that the intensely talented Bell, who previously jazzed up the even

shittier Jumper, never even bothers forging chemistry. What’s left is murky lighting, inscrutable shaky-cam battle scenes and a muddled treatise on tolerance. The Eagle may not officially be a sequel to Centurion, but it certainly fits the sequel stereotype.

The Roommate

D Reviewed by Matt Prigge Though not credited as such, The Roommate is a powerfully lame reworking of Single White Female, not to mention, after The Mechanic, the new year’s second inferior remake of a film that wasn’t terribly good to begin with. Re-imagined, if that’s the word, for spoiled collegiates, this dumped-in-February redo stars Friday Night Lights’ Minka Kelly, 30, as a freshman at the prestigious University of Los Angeles. She lucks into sharing her spacious and eternally dim room with Leighton Meester’s mysteriously chipper art student, who forges an immediate stranglehold on her roomie’s affairs. Soon, Meester is ripping out naval rings from Kelly’s skanky friends, having phone

sex with her ex—who evidently can’t tell the difference between his former girlfriend and someone who sounds nothing like her—and saving her nastier work for an adorable stray kitten christened “Cuddles.” Alas, Kelly, who comes off as a less charismatic Jessica Alba, is painfully slow to grow hip to Meester’s clear batshit insanity, despite her penchant for late night “Where were you?”s and shooting sinister glares. Her being engaged in higher education must have been an accident. Single White Female was high-end trash (directed by the occasionally credible, occasionally not so much, Barbet Schroeder, who was working somewhere in between) with one weirdly empathetic performance. The Roommate is sub-trash, in that it’s not even enjoyable on a shameless level, and therefore not useful to anyone beyond Billy Zane completists. (He plays a lecherous professor. Not as fun as it sounds.) Meester, needless to say, is no Jennifer Jason Leigh, who at least conveyed deep, personally, absolutely fucked-up trauma. Meester’s psycho is merely a whiny rich kid off her meds, telegraphing her homicidal tendencies from the start, leaving no place to go but a finale that represents a

“Mom, can you pass me the phone, please,” asks a young woman (Mary Tsoni) over dinner. Her mother (Michele Valley) hands her the salt shaker. What on earth is going on in the Greek bugfuck Dogtooth? As nearly as we can tell, this: Three kids, all in their early 20s and evidently missing names, never leave a massive, remote estate. There’s a strong possibility they never have. They don’t have jobs or go to school. What little education they receive is from vocab tapes made by their mother, who feeds them false definitions for things they should never know: a sea is a “large chair;” pussy means “a big lamp.” Father (Christos Stergioglou), who holds a factory job, tells them that their AWOL other brother was mauled by the world’s most dangerous animal: the cat. Time is passed playing odd endurance games, such as huffing in ether and seeing who wakes up first. Fêted at Cannes and recently (and justly) nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, Dogtooth is already on DVD and Netflix Instant, having unfairly tanked during a limited release. Frankly, even seeing it on a stamp-sized .avi file would suffice, long as it’s seen. Not simply a brilliant premise fully explored and exploited, Dogtooth is a masterpiece of unease. Plunged into an alien world in media res, and never spoon-fed expository dialogue, we’re trusted to solve the puzzle through action. Director Yorgos Lanthimos heightens an already discomforting experience through framing that calls attention to what’s not on-screen as much as what is: heads are sometimes cut off; the camera hits its subjects at odd angles; shots are held several beats too long. Clinical and darkly funny, Dogtooth calmly and approvingly observes as this carefully controlled environment erodes through a holy trilogy of sex, the free market and Hollywood movies. (As in Son of Rambow, a sheltered kid’s mind is rewired by the cinema of Sylvester Stallone.) Through this extreme example, we’re shown the perils of living with blinders, be the enablers overprotective parents, overprotective nation-states or Glenn Beck. If Biutiful nabs its Oscar, it will be another reason to hate that piece of shit. n

‘The Eagle’ delivers authentically intense action. A riveting spectacle.”

Bearing the sticky fingerprints of Executive Producer James Cameron, director Andrew Grierson’s cheeseball cave-diving adventure exhibits all the King Of The World’s weaknesses and none of his strengths. Preoccupied, as usual, with underwater trauma, Cameron’s latest production follows a collection of laughably stock characters facing down calamitous floods while trapped inside “the mother of all caves.” Whiny Rhys Wakefield stars as the petulant, emo-boy son of Richard Roxburgh’s legendary explorer, who’s kind of like a dickhead Cousteau. We understand that these two don’t get along so well because neither one speaks of anything else besides their frayed relationship for the first half hour of the movie. Then that staggeringly bad actor Ioan Gruffudd literally parachutes in as a Richard Branson-esque billionaire thrill-seeker, dragging his dim-bulb girlfriend (Alice Parkinson) a few dozen miles underground into an unexplored cave system to show off. Because apparently that’s his idea of a hot date, and nothing could possibly go wrong. Sanctum wasn’t just shot with Avatar’s 3-D cameras, it also hews closely to that absurdly overpraised film’s annoying screenwriting model. First somebody tells you that you’re about to see something amazing very soon, and you won’t believe your eyes. Then bad music soars during a brief, occasionally impressive visual. The following several minutes are devoted to close-ups of characters staring slackjawed and saying “Woah.” Eventually, everybody high-fives one another, shouting stuff like: “I told you this would blow your mind!” Can’t we just look at things and let our eyes decide whether or not we are impressed, without an annoying Greek chorus of backslappers standing in for the filmmakers and congratulating themselves for presenting such astonishing wonderments? Such moments run short when the cave finally floods. Then everyone just keeps discovering more unpleasant ways to die while trying to paddling through damp crawlspaces in murky water. The dingy rock backdrops and sparse lighting aren’t a clever match for 3-D’s natural inevitable color and brightness diminishment. But because this is a James Cameron production, we’ve also got operatic emotional reconciliations conveyed through the most inane dialogue imaginable. I couldn’t wait for these people to drown.

failure of nerve and much else besides. You could blame the restricting PG-13 rating for the film’s active lack of fun and thrills, but The Roommate is so lacking it feels like it was always intended to be a joyless PG-13 right from the green light.

SavageLove I

’ve written before, but I didn’t hear back from you—probably because my email didn’t contain flogging or santorum or whatever. But I won’t be IGNORED, Dan. I’m a 32-year-old female. Second marriage, two kids: one kid with my ex and one with the man I cheated on my ex with (my current husband). My problem: A year ago, I found my “first love” on a social network. I’d been looking for him off and on for more than 16 years. This person was a jerk who left me for one of my friends back in high school. But he was and still is the love of my life. We began an affair about seven months after finding each other. My current marriage had been rocky before this. My husband stopped having sex with me after I became pregnant, and this continued after our child was born. We tried counseling. It didn’t help. In no way am I using this as an excuse. I know what I’ve done is wrong. But I also have a pretty bad track record and have cheated on every man I’ve ever been with, except for my first love. My first love is the worst person in the world for me. Yet I’m in love with him. I have ALWAYS been in love with him. He wants me to leave my white-collar husband for him, a very blue-collar guy. I live in a nice home in the suburbs; my first love lives in a small apartment in the city. Five months after we began having sex with each other, my current husband found out. Instead of leaving me, he has turned into a different man: extremely loving and attentive. He says this experience has made him realize how much he loves me and that he doesn’t want to lose me. I want to do what is best for my kids—and that would be staying right where I am. But I feel my only chance for “true” love, if there is such a thing, is passing me by. I’ve never felt for anyone as I do for this man. Every man who has come into my life AFTER him knew about him and knew that if he ever came back for me, I was gone. This includes my current husband. Dan, pull out all the stops on this one, as you famously do, and please tell me what to do. Serial Cheater In Love

I’ve read what you’ve written before, SCIL, but I didn’t respond because I didn’t have much to say to you and I still don’t. I had the same reaction reading your email today that I had reading all the other emails you’ve sent. My reaction is a little selfish, and I’m a little embarrassed to share it with you. But you keep pressing me, SCIL, and so here it is: THIS BITCH CAN GET LEGALLY MARRIED AND I CAN’T?!?! Sorry, sorry, sorry. That was cunty of me—nowhere near the level of respectful professionalism that people expect of me—and so now I’m going to have to make amends by scrounging up some of that advice shit you’re after. But I’m going to offer you my advice on one condition: You don’t write to me ever again. OK! You say you’ve cheated on every man you’ve ever been with, with the exception of your “first love,” SCIL. You seem to be engaged in a little circular reasoning/ magical thinking here—you’ve concluded that he must be the love of your life because you didn’t cheat on him, and you didn’t cheat on him because he’s the love of your life. No. You didn’t cheat on him,

By Dan Savage

mail@savagelove.net

SCIL, because you didn’t get around to it. You two broke up when you were 15 years old. If you’d been with him a little longer, you would’ve cheated on him like you’ve cheated on everybody else. If you leave your current husband and break up your first child’s second home and your second child’s first home, it won’t be long before you get around to cheating on the love of your life, too. Because you’re a cheater, SCIL, a habitual, serial cheater. You’re precisely the kind of person who shouldn’t make monogamous commitments. Or get married. Or have children. So what should you do? Stay? Go? Frankly, SCIL, I don’t give a fuck what you do. Stay or go, it’s not going to make a fuck of a lot of difference. Your personal life is a mess, SCIL, and it always will be. Because, you see, wherever you go, there you are. That said: If your current husband doesn’t mind being cheated on, if he can put up with your affairs and wants to put your children first, then I think you should stay with him for the sake of your kids. They deserve whatever stability and continuity you can provide for them between infidelities. Again, if you leave your current husband for the love of your life, SCIL, it won’t be long before you’re cheating on your third husband and preparing to uproot your kids a third/second time. I know it, you know it, everyone out there reading this knows it, even your current husband seems to know it. So just stay put, OK?

My girlfriend of two years, my first real relationship, broke up with me a month ago. Although I felt like shit for most of that month, we somehow managed to struggle through to a close friendship. I wouldn’t say I’m entirely over her, but I understand why it happened and that we won’t be getting back together. All in all, I’ve felt like we’ve both been pretty mature and things are going well. The complication: We still find each other attractive and we work very well together sexually. So she proposed an FWB arrangement, and I said yes. We laid down ground rules—we are not together, we are just friends who fuck, so no “I love you,” no commitments, no expectations—and we started having hot sex. Is this foolhardy? We both know that I’d prefer something more. So the question remains: Should we keep fucking? Can’t Recall Acronym Procedure

How are you going to feel when your exgirlfriend/current-fuck-buddy finds a new boyfriend and ends your FWB arrangement? If you can honestly answer, “I’ll be happy for her,” then keep fucking—but don’t forget to ask for your balls back when she dumps you that second time. If you can’t say that and you decide to keep fucking the ex anyway, CRAP, you wouldn’t be the first lovesick dumpee who agreed to enter into an FWB arrangement with an ex. If the short-term rewards (all that hot sex) and the potential long-term payoff (getting back together) make the risk seem worthwhile, then keep fucking. n

AGENT SHARES BLAME FOR FAILURE TO PROVIDE REPORT IN TIMELY MANNER

• • • • • • •

¶I Q: DEAR BARRY: We bought our home six weeks ago. The sellers had inherited the property and claimed to know nothing about its condition. After moving in, there was a rainstorm. The roof leaked and the bedroom ceiling became wet. Our home inspector had said the roof was fairly new and in good condition. The termite report, however, disclosed water stains on the bedroom ceiling. Unfortunately, we did not receive the termite report in time. Our real estate agent never gave us a copy. We obtained one directly from the termite company three days before the close of escrow. By that time, our deadline for negotiation had expired and our belongings were already packed in a moving van. When we complained to our agent, he apologized for not having provided the termite report, but he assured us that the stains were probably caused by old leaks and were “no big deal.” He also insisted that the sellers couldn’t have known about the leakage or they would have disclosed it, according to law. But the sellers must have known because they paid for the termite report. Who is liable for the roof repairs: the sellers, our agent, or the home inspector? DEAR ¶I A: The sellers were required to disclose the defects that were listed by their termite inspector, including evidence of possible roof leaks. When you realized that they had not provided disclosure, you could have put a hold on the deal, even though the contingency period had expired. The sellers had violated their legal obligation to disclose known defects. That violation invalidated the negotiation deadline and now exposes them to liability for repair costs. But they are not alone in their liability. Your real estate agent is also liable for roof repair costs for the following two reasons: CONTINUED ON p50 >>>

>>> WHAT TO DO WHEN A SELLER HIDES DEFECTS CONTINUED FROM p46 1. Your agent should have provided you with a copy of the termite report as soon as it was available. There is no acceptable excuse for failing to convey the document. This oversight essentially negated your ability to consider vital disclosure information during the contingency period. 2) Your agent had no business suggesting that the roof leak was “no big deal.” That statement was patently irresponsible. Unless he is qualified to evaluate a roof, and unless he walked on the roof prior to making his evaluation, there was no reasonable basis for making that statement. If he had truly been looking out for your interests, rather than trying to close the deal, he should have demanded further evaluation of the roof by a licensed roofing contractor before the close of escrow. Finally, there is the question of liability for the home inspector. In most cases, a leaky roof has some form of visible defect. If your home inspector overlooked visible roof defects, he could be liable for professional negligence. All parties involved in this transaction should be notified that there are unresolved issues that cannot be ignored. A second home inspection should be performed by a highly qualified inspector to determine what other issues should also have been disclosed.
