OMG! Let’s not make any more a fool of ourselves, people! There are trolleys all over the world! I grew up in Philly, and in fact, purposely rode on the streets with trolley tracks. I never once had a problem. Hence, most of the major and even smaller cities and towns are restoring trolley service (thus, tracks) on city public streets. Learn how to ride a bike! Gripe about important issues like health care, education.

In response to Randy LoBasso’s blog about the Streets Department saying they’ll be paving around, not over, the rail tracks on 11th and 12th streets in Center City: From Twitter: That’s weak. —@veneziar Depressing! Especially since the trolley tracks are not even being used! —@jadebarnes


Nooooooooooo! —@timaree_leigh I might actually cry. —@yepitsjana We need to keep these tracks maintained because if money is available, say, 10 years down the road to bring the 23 [trolley] back, they can simply just purchase the vehicles and place them on the tracks and they’re ready to. Bicyclists can stop whining. ROY via The track serves importance in the history of Philadelphia’s trolleys, especially with the 23 being North America’s longest trolley line, spanning 12 miles from Chestnut Hill to Oregon Avenue. We need to keep


In response to Randy LoBasso’s blog about new data showing Pennsylvania to be among the worst states on abortion rights: the tracks and press the city to redirect funds to invest in the return of the trolley. If Philadelphia is so worried about going green, wouldn’t it be logical to remove the diesel buses off the line and put the trolleys back? Can’t the bikers go a block over to 13th or 10th where there are bike lanes already in place? Are the bikers that lazy, they can’t go a block over? Get your ish together, Philadelphia.

The government tries to force women into giving birth to their child by shutting down abortion centers or placing other restrictions. However, forcing someone to become a mother doesn’t force the person to become a good mother. A proper way to save the life of unborns should be improving sexual education for teenagers and adults, together with supporting young mothers and their babies.

Closing School Libraries? This Means War Philadelphia’s school budget woes have shuttered the district’s much-lauded libraries. It’s a failure of basic civilization that cannot be allowed to stand. By Stephen H. Segal //


nd so finally it’s come to this: The Philadelphia School District has closed its top schools’ libraries due to the budget crisis. Only 15 librarians remain in the entire district, where enrollment has already climbed past last year’s 150,000 students. As the Inquirer reported Friday, principals at Central High and Masterman are scrambling to figure out how exactly they’re supposed to give students an education without being able to give them books to read. Let me spell this out in no uncertain terms: The library is the single most important operation in any school. It’s more important than each and every classroom. The library is where students engage their own minds. The library is the place that embodies the concept of intellectual activity being something for a person to choose. Whether you are a social progressive who believes public education should be the nation’s top funding priority, a fiscal conservative who believes a free market of school-choice options is the only way to keep educators accountable for their job performance, or a moderate who just hopes kids will emerge into adult society as vaguely functional human beings, there is nothing to debate here. Libraries are civilization. Whether you believe public-school teachers are tragically underpaid and under-appreciated martyrs to humanity’s future or lazy union employees who enjoy coasting on tenure and seniority through a lifetime of ten-month work years, there is nothing to debate here. Libraries are education. Whether you point a finger of blame for our sorry school system at negligent parents, corrupt politicians, inner-city violence or an uncaring corporate nation that prefers to raise mindless consumers rather than engaged citizens, there is nothing to debate here. Libraries are sanctuary. A school where students are not free to use a library is not a school. It’s a multiple-choice indoctrination camp. On occasion, I’ve heard people suggest that the ubiquity of the internet makes libraries obsolete. They are wrong. They are very, very wrong. And here’s why: because what a library is goes much

deeper than its collection. Yes, the internet is the greatest library collection of documents ever imagined by man—and yet it is a collection, not a library, because people are not disembodied information searches; we are people. We exist in our bodies, adjacent to other people who exist in their bodies, and the library is where we go and join those other people in the shared communion that seeking knowledge and understanding of our world is good. That communion—the unspoken pact everyone in every library has tacitly signed that we are part of an ongoing, eons-old quest to improve

A school where students are not free to use a library is not a school. It’s a multiple-choice indoctrination camp. our lives via learning—is what makes it possible for a people to keep creating tomorrow. The books, whether they’re printed books on shelves or digital books on screens, are important. But what actually makes the library the core of civilization, of education, isn’t the books themselves—it’s the communal agreement that sharing the books makes us all, individually and collectively, better. Any closed library is an insult to civilization. Closing the libraries inside schools isn’t just an insult: It’s a declaration of war. As of last week’s hobbled attempt at a new school year, Philadelphia has launched a suicidal war on our own future. The question is no longer who’s responsible. The question is: What are we all going to do about it? 

Style stars take the runway by storm at the Philadelphia Collection each year.


The Philadelphia Collection

Break out your best heels and get ready to don that trendy faux-fur jacket you impulsively bought last week during your fall shopping escapades: Philly’s own brand of Fashion Week has officially landed. In the City of Brotherly Love (and Sisterly Affection), the Philadelphia Collection is all-inclusively celebrating and spreading fashion with events in Old City, Center City, Passyunk, Manayunk, Northern Liberties and beyond. Whether you’re looking for trunk shows, discussions led by industry notables, large-scale runway walking, fashion soirees, makeovers or even a fashion show for your wee one, the Philadelphia Collection has all the bases covered. With 75 independently-produced featured events mixed in with smaller abundant showcases, the Philadelphia Collection will own the next eight days, and although some scheduled events—like the XIX Most Fashionable Women in Philadelphia Awards—are by invitation only, the majority are all-encompassing for the city’s fashion-savvy public to enjoy. Sip cocktails and get the inside scoop from Nicole Richie’s stylist in Center City. Expand your horizons beyond American Apparel at Kembrel’s Affordably Made in the USA trunk show. Watch the line between street art and fashion blur on Fabric Row. And check out the highenergy runway show, student designer displays and more at the 20th annual Phashion Phest, plopped right inside the Shops at Liberty Place. You can even commit to a full-body workout and shop at a pop-up jewelry mart immediately afterward to give yourself a little sparkle and shine not induced by sweat. Since the Philadelphia Collection was founded four years ago, Philadelphia has been both praised by Lucky magazine and highlighted by Forbes as one of the best shopping cities in the United States. With an abundance of opportunities to see how much our city’s boutiques and fashion luminaries have to offer firsthand, the jam-packed mix of Philadelphia Collection soirees, style showcases and informative talks are sure to leave you with more than just a new go-to fall wardrobe staple. / LAUREN ARUTE Through Sept. 25.

Stereophonics My brother did a semester abroad while at Marist College; in his junior year, he studied in Leeds. He came back with a Leeds United scarf, a puffy face bloat from drinking non-stop and a copy of the Stereophonics’ debut album, Word Gets Around. Earlier that spring, they’d released Performance and Cocktails, and that one I sought out myself. They’re both killer records, to be sure, two in a canon of modern Brit rock LPs that have sold millions and won them adoring fans. “Hurry Up and Wait,” from Performance, is like a better version of Radiohead’s “High and Dry.” It’s true, both have a little bit of that ‘90s feel that beckons a little bit of that Empire Records vibe—especially the big hit from their debut, “Local Boy in the Photograph.” But they’ve aged gracefully. After more than 15 years of touring, sometimes even headlining mammoth festivals like Reading and Leeds and Glastonbury, they’re a well-oiled machine. With eight albums in their repertoire, even if some of em’ are a little lackluster, they could sure as shit put together one helluva setlist. The brothers Jones—Kelly provides lead guitar and vocals and Richard bass and backup—know how to have a good time, too. Know how I know? Kelly’s voice sounds absolutely drenched in whiskey and tobacco. Which everyone knows is fuel for writing good songs and putting on a great show. / BILL CHENEVERT

KenCrest Annual Tasting Event: Flavors of the Community MUSIC

The Soul Rebels If there’s one thing that can be mined in the wake of New Orleans post-Katrina, it’s that we humans can find sheer will and pure joy, even in the darkest of times, and the Big Easy-based Soul Rebels continue to turn people out, year after year, with their unstoppable spirit. What is essentially now an amorphous and ever-changing collective, there is one ageless tie, and that’s funk. Funk, as we all know, comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes: from jazz to hip-hop to soul and R&B, even rock. The Rebels aren’t afraid to mix, match, blend, oscillate and pounce on these variations, and they do so with such high energy and happinessspreading instruments. We’re talking about brass. Sure, they’re very much about percussion, singing and guitars, but being such a robust brass ensemble really makes them shine. The Soul Rebels would be an excellent enough show on their own, but add in Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe—for whom the Rebels are opening—and you’ve got a stellar way to spend your Friday evening and 20-something dollars. The supremely righteous saxophone that Denson wields will undoubtedly be lifted up by the eight (or more)-piece collective tonight. There’s no telling how this show could evolve, what they’ll cover, what they’ll improvise, how late they’ll wail. But what’s absolutely certain is that you will move, sweat and leave feeling 1,000 percent better about life. / B.C.

Michael Franti and Spearhead Headed by Oakland-based musician, poet and activist Michael Franti, the Bay Area-founded outfit Spearhead makes a feel-good musical blend of hip-hop, reggae and folk vibes stemming from the group leader’s numerous projects of varying sounds and mediums. Call their latest LP, July’s All People, one of its most potent. Beginning his career as the leader of industrial punk band the Beatnigs in the late ‘80s, Franti’s style has honed toward a dancehall version of his previous anti-conformity raves. What ventured into a somewhat softer mix of industrial music and rap via Franti’s early’90s pairing with Rono Tse, the Disposable Heroes of HipHoprisy, also dabbled into jazz territory, eventually leading to his formation of Spearhead in 1994. Franti and his merry band of cohorts have been creating infectious politically- and world affairs-aware festival rock since. Speaking of world issues, unlike most of his leftleaning musical peers, Franti has actually planted his feet (bare, of course, as he prefers) in areas of the world where war is prevalent on a day-to-day schedule. His 2005 documentary, I Know I’m Not Alone: A Musician’s Search for the Human Cost of War, ably explored the lives of people living in Iraq, Palestine and Israel and advocates for peace in the Middle East. He’s earned a number of awards for his activism. His music’s just the icing on the cake. / RANDY LOBASSO

Deva Premal has a way of getting into your head with her voice. Never mind the fact that her angelic chanting ability drives the sound of her atmospheric musical craft; it’s the meaning behind it that has steered so many listeners toward making positive change in their lives, both minor and major. In 1990, in the ashram of the infamous mystic Osho in Pune, India, the Germany-born Premal was introduced to Miten, an Englishman formerly known as Andy Desmond, who has been her partner in music and love for over 20 years. With the former being a classicallytrained, lifelong student of mantra and the latter a wild child from the British rock scene, the two seemingly couldn’t have been more dissimilar. But despite their differences—and the 22-year age gap between them—their hearts connected, and eight years later, they released their first album, The Essence, which featured a rendition of the “Gayatri mantra” that had been recited to Premal since before she was even born. The couple now travels the world on the wings of the ethereal music they make, bringing their spiritual message to sold-out crowds near and far, whether in modest yoga studios or at large-scale festivals. For their latest 25-city tour, entitled MantraFest, they will be joined by frequent collaborator and bansuri maestro Manose, in addition to the GuruGanesha Band. / JAKE ABBATE

Mark Rosenberg: Eating My Feelings After 2010’s Blackouts and Breakdowns, his successful freshman novel about his former exploits as a party boy in New York City’s gay nightlife, Mark Brennan Rosenberg wrote last month’s Eating My Feelings: Tales of Overeating, Underperforming and Coping with My Crazy Family, a collection of essays about his body image as a child in the 1980s and living as an openly gay adult in the 2000s. In his second book, Rosenberg details—through “drunken debauchery and swearing like a trucker,” according to one Amazon review—both growing up questioning himself and then finding a home in New York City, where that devil alcoholism would get the best of him—though not before he was able to cull a ton of awesome stories out of it, providing him with the fodder to pen the I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell of LGBT literature. He’s been sober now for about five years. Rosenberg—whose blog, The Single Life, offers everything from post-breakup advice to hilarity titled “Fuck you, Taylor Swift!”—is currently on a nationwide tour, using cash he made through a Kickstarter campaign—overshooting his own $10,000 goal—to hit 30 different cities. Ever the innovator, the author has promised “something unheard of in this industry” to make anyone—who wants to be—part of the tour, though he hasn’t really gotten into specifics just yet.

Exuberance, Drama Take Center Stage Philadelphia’s mighty melange of theater companies has prepped some fantastic fall offerings. By J. Cooper Robb //


s Philadelphia’s Fringe Festival winds down its 17th year of performanceart innovation across scores of city stages, it’s time for the city’s theater companies to make their 2013-14 debuts. This fall promises Philadelphia theatergoers a wide variety of offerings to sample. The Walnut Street Theatre’s new season gets underway with an exciting production of the Tony Award-winning In the Heights (through Oct. 20). Featuring a spectacular book by Pulitzer Prize-winner (and proud Philadelphian) Quiara Alegria Hudes, the exuberant, poignant musical is set in a Latino neighborhood in New York City. Filled with rousing songs and memorable characters, the Walnut’s production succeeds on the strength of its marvelous cast, which, under Bruce Lumpkin’s skilled direction, executes Michelle Gaudette’s sweaty, sexy choreography with tremendous skill and verve. Jane Austen’s legion of fans will no doubt take delight in the Lantern Theater Company’s theatrical adaptation of her popular novel, Emma (Sept. 19-Oct. 27). Often adapted for film, Emma is the tale of a young, pretty, somewhat meddlesome matchmaker. This playful stage adaptation focuses the audience’s attention on the characters, as opposed to the visual extravagance of the Emma movies, with their grand estates and vistas of the bucolic English countryside. The great American musical Parade is the opening production at the Arden Theatre Company (Sept. 26-Nov. 3). Penned by immensely talented composer/lyricist Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years) and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy), Parade is the true story of Leo Frank, a Jewish factory manager and a transplanted northerner—played by the supremely talented Ben Dibble—accused of murdering a young girl in 1913 Atlanta. Featuring a spectacular score, the musical tells a hugely involving tale of anti-Semitism and social justice set in a Confederate state, where ancient prejudices are slow to die. Simpatico Theatre Project opens its season with The Brothers Size (Oct. 2-Nov. 3), a scorching drama from brilliant young playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney. Presented by one of Philly’s hottest small theater companies, the play is set in the backwoods of rural

The great American musical Parade premieres at the Arden next week.

Louisiana. Featuring perhaps McCraney’s most penetrating and poetic script, The Brothers Size draws on Yoruba mythology and the mystical world, speaking the truths of two brothers headed down very different paths. The Wilma Theater changes gears from

producer to presenter with their seasonopening presentation of The Convert (Oct. 9-Nov. 10). Part of a program instituted by the Wilma as a way for audiences to experience work by the nation’s top companies, The Convert is produced by Washington, D.C.’s legendary Wooly Mammoth Theater.

Penned by Danai Gurira, the drama tells the story of a young girl who escapes a forced marriage and discovers Christianity in 1895 South Africa. Curio Theatre Company flips its script with a unique gender-bending version of William Shakespeare’s tragic masterpiece Romeo and Juliet (Oct. 11-Nov. 2). Directed by Krista Apple-Hodge, this staging imagines both Romeo and Juliet as young women. The first production of Curio’s season of gender exploration, its same-sex lovers offer another explanation for why the ill-fated teens are compelled to hide their romance from their respective families. Amy Herzog’s Obie Award-winning 4,000 Miles (Oct. 11-Nov. 10) kicks off Philadelphia Theatre Company’s 2013-14 session. Moving and often extremely funny, this intimate play focuses on Leo, a young man who pedals across the country on his bicycle and arrives unexpectedly on the doorstep of his feisty grandmother in Manhattan’s West Village. It’s directed by Barrymore Award winner Mary B. Robinson, who is responsible for several of PTC’s most successful productions, including Molly Sweeny and Three Viewings. And finally, tongues will certainly be wagging at Theatre Exile with its provocatively titled starter Cock (Oct. 17-Nov. 10). A huge hit in Britain, the play explores the complicated story of a man torn between his boyfriend and a woman. An exploration of labels, stereotypes and forging an identity that rejects the usual definitions allowed by society, director Deborah Block’s emotionally charged production takes place in Exile’s intensely intimate converted Studio X garage stage.

Lives Get Lit

It’s a season full of inspiring life stories, from Malcom X to Steely Dan’s Don Fagen. By Eugene Holley //


s fall approaches, it’s time to take down the awning, pull out the afghan, make sure the firewood is chopped, and cozy up with books that will transport us to some other place or time. Here are five worth the trip. For the past decade, Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates’ expansive PBS documentaries have shown us how interwoven our black and American ancestries really are. This fall, his massive six-part, six-hour series The African-Americans: Many Rivers to Cross chronicles the cultural, political, religious and historical evolution of black Americans from 1513 to the election of President Barack Obama. The sametitled companion book (Smiley Books), co-written by fellow Harvard scholar David Yacovone, elaborates and expands on the documentary, with evocative illustrations, photos and interviews by a multitude of African-Americans notables, from journalist Charlayne Hunter-Gault and former Black Panther Kathleen Cleaver to former Secretary of State Colin Powell. The book is a superb literary soundtrack that marks the rise of a people from slavery to freedom. Philadelphia is as important to AfricanAmerican history as it is to American history. University of Michigan professor Michael Awkward’s Philadelphia Freedoms: Black American Trauma, Memory, and Culture After King (Temple University Press), drives that point home in this searing book that captures all of the turbulent civil rights struggles that took place in the City of

Brotherly Love, from the ‘60s to the ‘90s. From a tense Philadelphia 76ers game that took place after Martin Luther King was assassinated in 1968 and the impassioned, empowering themes of black fatherhood and family on Gamble and Huff’s Philadelphia International label of the ‘70s to his examination of Andrea Lee’s novel Sarah Phillips and Toni Morrison’s Beloved alongside Barack Obama’s 2008 speech on race at the National Constitution Center, Awkward dives right in. He brilliantly juxtaposes Philadelphia’s mythic image as the city where American democracy was born with the real life, bitter struggles of African-Americans and their quest to obtain those demo-

Closed Monday. Open from Tuesday to Sunday

Malcolm X Steles (Yale University Press), is the literary version of her stunning 13 sculptures of Malcolm X, currently on exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The author of The President’s Daughter and Echo of Lions—two historical novels that dealt with the Thomas Jefferson/ Sally Hemings affair and Amistad slave ship rebellion, respectively—looks at the former Nation of Islam leader with the kind of oblique angles that only sculpture can reveal. And who can talk about Philadelphia museums without dealing with the newest kid on the block, the Barnes Museum, and all of the drama its controversial arrival to Center City from Merion County ensued? That’s exactly what journalist John Anderson’s Art Held Hostage: The Battle Over the Barnes Collection (W. W. Norton & Company) does. Originally published as a hardback a decade ago, the new paperpback edition features a new epilogue that updates this sensational, tangled web of class, race, prestige and politics. The book details how the art collection of industrialist Albert C. Barnes was taken from the trusteeship of the historically black Lincoln University and transported downtown, against the will of Barnes’ estate. Though there is no question that the Barnes’ addition has added some well-needed spice to Philly museum culture, Anderson makes it very clear that the dust on this matter is far from settled.

cratic rights guaranteed by the Constitution signed her two centuries ago—and still being sought today. Just as Soul Train brought black soul music into the homes of mainstream U.S.A. back in the ‘70s, locally, radio stations like WDAS-FM played music by hip white groups like Chicago, the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, the last of which consisted of the songwriting duo Walter Becker and Donald Fagen, who jointly penned hits like “Black Cow” and “Deacon Blues.” With the release of his first book, Eminent Hipsters (Viking), the North Jersey-born Fagen crafts a revealing, dry humor-ridden memoir that waxes philosophic about growing up in the Cold War-’50s and ‘60s as a nerdy Jewish kid who was down with sci-fi novels, jazz and R&B. Fagen also writes about meeting Becker at Bard College, the origins of Steely Dan and the perils of traveling as an aging rocker. What one gets from this book is how Fagen transforms his life into the kind of aural artistry that still makes him relevant; he’ll discuss the book with WXPN’s David Dye on Oct. 24 at the Free Library of Philadelphia.

The Walls Are Alive

It’s an artful autumn in galleries and museums from Old City to Mount Airy. By Sean Corbett //


hen scanning Philadelphia’s diverse and shape-shifting art-filled neighborhoods, patterns begin to emerge. This is a city whose streets are popping with fresh public artwork, whose galleries and museums are known around the world for their relevance and whose artists are always pushing and pulling at important questions, working together and doing our city proud. Aside from the occasional naked man climbing a bus—or maybe because of him, Philly’s streets are as perfectly viable a muse for its artists as anything else in the city. With a sculpture in every park and something artful to find in every neighborhood, artists work to keep things fresh here, which is why some of autumn’s most exciting action comes from local artists who’ve inspired and conspired with other area creatives. The collaborative spirit is alive and well this season. This month, with the African American Museum in Philadelphia’s exhibit, The Unflinching Eye: Works of the Tiberino Family Circle, is a time to remember and celebrate the amazing body of work by prolific Philadelphia artist Ellen Powell Tiberino and her extended clan, who have continued her wondrous legacy. Ellen Tiberino got Philly: She was quoted in 1988 as saying, “I paint life, and life is not always beautiful.” Responsible for some of the most amazing three-dimensional murals, sculptures and large-scale paintings in the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program, a selection of the Tiberino family’s vibrant and poignant work will be on display through March 2014. Most art lovers start their Philly adventures at the top of the rear steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This month, the museum welcomes a retrospective of Philly-born artist/writer/poet Barbara ChaseRiboud, with The Malcolm X Steles, which focuses predominantly on her Malcolm X sculpture series. November at the PMA brings the exciting and mind-twisting work of Salvador Dali, Roberto Matta, Joan Miró and Dorothea Tanning, among others, in The Surrealists, which offers a historical tale about the revolutionary movement. Back out in the streets, Made in Philly will essentially come right to you this fall. Held throughout September and October via a coordinated takeover of 50 street-level advertising spaces throughout Philadelphia,

Something for everyone: Ryan McGinness’ psychedelic, layered paintings (like Everything Is Alive, above) will be on view at the Bridgette Mayer Gallery through October and November in the show Finding Infinity; Thomas Buildmore’s explosive, street-art inspired still-life series of bouquets (Synthetic Sympathy, below) can be seen in Old City’s Indy Hall, and next month, Gravy Studio in Fishtown will be featuring the aged digital photography (next page) of Andrew Pinkham.

Made in Philly brings you outstanding artwork, diverse and accomplished professional artists in place of soul-crushing corporate ads. Neighborhood-specific installations will highlight this project. The October portion comes partnered with this year’s Philadelphia Open Studio Tours, lifting white gallery walls to bring audiences directly into the creative process. Contained within the weekends of Oct. 5-6 (East Philly) and Oct 19-20 (West Philly), the Center for Emerging Visual Artists-run program is the largest selfguided tour of artist studios and creative workspaces in the Philadelphia area, with options for guided trolley tours as well. Speaking of self-guided tours, you’ll want to take a few leisurely, flannelled walks through the pulsating art-filled neighborhoods of Rittenhouse Square, South Street, University City, Old City and Northern Liberties. With too many galleries to mention, it is always a good idea to just wander around and walk in. Take, for instance, an evening jaunt down Frankford Avenue between Girard Avenue and York Street in Fishtown, with its fleet of pop-up galleries, small shops, DIY spaces, outdoor art and established galleries paired alongside friendly little restaurants, coffee shops and urban gardens. It’s here, with the neighborhood’s quiet but alive vibe, where you can still feel like you’re truly exploring. Outside Rocket Cat Cafe, Shepard Fairey’s mural was recently vandalized, so watch for something new by the Mural Arts Program soon. Down the street, a sculpture/mural changes as you walk by. Everywhere, artful graffiti winks at you as you pass. The area is built as much by art as it is by red bricks. Take a step into Fjord, Circle of Hope, the Soup Kitchen, Pizza Brain or White Stone Gallery, and see what all the fuss is about. The fuss continues throughout the city in November with the Knight Foundationfunded CITYWIDE project, which will unify the city’s artist-run collectives in a monthlong, multi-gallery exhibit. More than 20 groups will participate in an exchange of exhibitions, ideas and practices. For example, the owners of Rebekah Templeton will have a show at Grizzly Grizzly, while members from Grizzly Grizzly commandeer Rebekah Templeton for the month. The sweeping shared project represents a geographical and ideological collaborative exchange that involves over 100 local artists. >>>

Philadelphia- According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That’s why it’s critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away altogether. In most cases, you can make reasonable

pre-inspection yourself if you know what you’re looking for, and knowing what you’re looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled “11 Things You Need To Know To Pass Your Home Inspection” has been compiled which explains the issues involved. To order a FREE Special Report, visit inspection.asp or to hear a brief recorded message about home to order your FREE copy of this report call toll-free (800) 560-2075 and enter 3003. • You can call any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Chinatown’s Space 1026, central to the CITYWIDE Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to produce a hand-printed book to document the month of art, will feature colorful printed and quilted work by Crystal Stokowski and Michael Persico in October’s Wet Dreams. Old City’s Indy Hall, an alternative office space known to be an exciting place for hungry self-starters to pull up a seat next to like-minded creatives, will continue its new series of exhibitions in the space, with Philly, Boston and NYC-based artist Thomas Buildmore’s explosive, street-art inspired still-life series of bouquet paintings. Gravy Studio, a Fishtown photography gallery and education studio not far from the vibrant Crane Arts Building, provides a new show each month this fall, with aged digital photography by Andrew Pinkham in October and cinematicstyle storytelling by Julianna Foster in November, followed by Andrew Swartz in December. And when James Weingrod’s space-bending exhibit comes down at Napoleon, get ready for an exhibit by UArts sculpture tech Lewis Colburn. In December, they will host an open call for a performance piece. At the beautiful Bridgette Mayer Gallery, Ryan McGinness’ psychedelic, layered work will be on view through October and November in a show called Finding Infinity, which coincides with his mural dedication on the far side of the University City Science Center, organized by the Mural Arts Program.

Back north of Girard Avenue, on Lawrence Street, the excellent and unassuming Salon 1522 features a collaborative show this month filled with ceramics made in Georgia, Texas and Philly called Electric, Wood, Love. Owner Shane Leddy will open his studio in November, and Champion of Empty Rooms co-chair Veronica Cianfrano will inhabit the space in December with small, overlapping memories and large canvas work. Outside the city, it is always worth the drive to Mount Airy Contemporary, whose early fall will be filled with kinetic sculptures and abstract paintings by Brad Litwin and Jonathan Eckel, and the Mount Airy Arts Garage, who’ll be hosting a festive Chanukah Art Market in December.

hiladelphians love to complain about SEPTA. But what happens when there’s no SEPTA left to complain about? That’s one of the most important issues state lawmakers will attempt to hammer out when they reconvene on Sept. 23. They’ll attempt to pass a $2 billion-plus state transportation bill, which will include new and maintenance funding for roads, bridges and yes, mass transit. Passing it is considered a high priority by the state government. But just like everything else that gets packed in and shredded out the Capitol’s grinder in small shards, the state’s divided government doesn’t know how much to spend and what to spend it on. All we know is that not passing it will add another dimension to the nightmare that is Philadelphia’s economic recovery. How do we know? Because SEPTA recently gave us a sneak peak of what non-passage might mean: a plan they aptly named their “Doomsday Budget.” Every spring in Harrisburg, legislators from both parties, in both the House and Senate, come together to celebrate budget season. Insults are exchanged, bills are proposed, bills are withdrawn, protesters have been known to camp out for their issues,

and somehow, a budget for the next fiscal year gets tossed out the back end. This past legislative session, the Republican-controlled legislature and Gov. Corbett had hoped to pass at least one of the “Big three” anticipated bills: transportation, liquor privatization and pension reform. But there was a problem: No one could agree on any of them. So none were passed. Now, transportation is considered the most time-sensitive legislation for the fall—and may have the largest direct effect on how Philadelphians live their lives. It will determine the next decade of our massively underfunded mass transit system’s life. As originally written by the Senate, the transportation bill was a massive $2.5 billion spending and tax-morphing bill (don’t call it an increase) that would have allocated money for Pennsylvania’s 1,000 decrepit bridges as well as bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. It provided enough money (about $510 million) to at least let SEPTA maintain its status quo through 2017 (though SEPTA says it really needs about $6 billion). After a more conservative House committee got a hold of it last spring, the bill shrunk to about $2 billion. In any other year, that would have easily passed the legislature and

FALL GUIDE • POLITICS (continued) been signed by the governor. But the state House was largely taken over by Tea Party Republicans in 2011. So cutting a half-billion dollars wasn’t nearly enough. Because after all, state legislators in places most of us have never heard of were sick and tired of believing their tax dollars are paying for our bus and train rides. This was perhaps best exemplified by a heated email exchange the Harrisburg news source Capitol Wire picked up in early May between two Republicans from opposite Pennsylvania borders: Tea Party state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe of Butler County, which is about 30 miles from the Ohio line; and moderate Tom Killion of Delaware County. “Your buses don’t do a thing for my constituents,” Metcalfe wrote to his fellow Republican. “How about we pay for your state roads and bridges, and you pay for your own buses? It is only fair since we only receive funding for our roads and bridges too.” Killion argued that 40 percent of Pennsylvania economic activity takes place in the southeastern portion of Pennsylvania— implying that without Philly, Pennsyltucky’s days of relevancy would be numbered. But that fell on Metcalfe’s deaf ears: “State expenditures should go to the common interests of the state, not special interests, like subsidizing a minority of our population’s bus fare, which is just more welfare.” Despite ridership being at a 23-year high, SEPTA has been operating on a shoestring budget for years. Its capital budget is at a 15-year low of $308 million—less than half of Boston’s MBTA budget and just a quarter the size of New Jersey Transit’s budget. Thing is, there’s no evidence to suggest transportation will actually be at the top of the Senate’s and House’s list when they get back in session on Sept. 23. So SEPTA has gone ahead and told us what they’re ready to do if the 253 legislators and the governor

can’t come up with something by the time winter break begins. “Casey told the committee SEPTA would be forced to significantly shrink the current transit system over the next 10 years without state funding action,” SEPTA spokesperson Andrew Busch wrote in an email to reporters last Thursday. What’s SEPTA’s shrinkage mean for you? That depends. Do you live in West Philadelphia? Say goodbye to your trolleys along Lancaster and Baltimore Avenues—they’d be converted to bus routes, either next year or by 2016. So would the Girard trolley from West Philly to Port Richmond. Are you a regional commuter? The Doomsday Budget would eliminate nine of the region’s 13 regional lines over the next 10 years, including Chestnut Hill East, Chestnut Hill West, Thorndale and Doylestown. SEPTA estimates about 12 percent of its ridership would be eliminated and either have to find another way to work, or let the free market do its job and find another. For a city that’s experiencing population growth, an increase in transit ridership and declining car ownership, cutting more transit funds comes across as nothing short of malevolent. Metcalfe, for his part, isn’t buying it. SEPTA, he says, is “trying to scare people. With the legislature coming back, this is a good time to roll it out there, but I think it’s going to backfire,” the Butler County Republican told the Inquirer. “It’s a very small minority of people who actually ride the buses…it’s hundreds of millions of dollars for a very small percentage of the population of our state.” We’d like to be hopeful about the bill over the coming weeks, but the idea of sabotaging a northeastern state’s urban economic hub in the name of cutting “welfare” and using the leftover cash to fund the natural gas industry has the Tea Party’s signature all over it.

More debates on the fall legislative agenda LGBT: State Rep. Brian Sims (D-Philadelphia) is co-sponsoring a bill that would ban “gay conversion therapy” for LGBT youth in the state of Pennsylvania. Higher ed: For future Pennsylvania college students, both State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery) and State Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-Philadelphia) have introduced different versions of a bill that would allow students to go to college for no up-front costs, then pay the state back with a percentage of their income when they inevitably (see: hopefully) become employed after graduation. Weed: Marijuana legislation at the state level doesn’t really have a chance of becoming law with Tom Corbett in the governor’s mansion, but the fine people at Philly NORML and the Panic Hour comedy troupe have been putting together a series of monthly protests at Independence Mall they’re calling “Smoke Down Prohibition.” The next one will be this weekend (Sept. 21), and if you can’t make it, fear not: There will be one in October, and November, and the month after that, we’re sure. Guns: There was another mass shooting in the U.S. this week. This time, on Monday, 13 people were killed in Washington, D.C.’s Navy Yard. Well, a group of Pennsylvania legislators—led by Philly representatives and senators—have been trying for more than half a dozen years to pass legislation which would, among other things, restrict certain firearms often involved in mass shootings from Pennsylvania’s hands. They’ve so far been unsuccessful. Health: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act allows for states to be flexible on expanding their Medicaid program to those poor and working class individuals who earn 133 percent of the poverty wage. Gov. Corbett has finally come around to agreeing to a Medicaid plan—but it’s just about the worst crap we’ve ever heard. The state legislature will likely hold hearings on it this fall, and the federal government will weigh in, too. / R.L.

Extraordinary Journeys, in Minutes & Miles From Ron Howard’s Rush and Redford’s solo turn to the horror of slavery, the season’s films promise real drama. By Sean Burns //


ell, aren’t we glad that’s over. After a fiscally calamitous summer in which the world ended every weekend to mass audience indifference, it’s time for the leaves to turn and for Hollywood to grow up a little bit. While the big, prestigious Oscar contenders don’t usually roll out until winter, I always prefer the fall, where studios tend to slot adult releases that are deemed too risky or sophisticated for their holiday blockbuster slots. The season kicks off with Ron Howard’s Rush (9/27), a study piece of pop mythmaking in which Opie returns to his Grand Theft Auto roots, chronicling the rivalry between Formula One racers Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) for the 1976 championship. Scripted in bold strokes by The Queen’s Peter Morgan, it’s a high-octane riff on Amadeus, with disciplined, intellectual Lauda pushed to the brink trying to keep up with the swaggering,

reckless Hunt. Howard gorges himself on the funky period details, and boy, do those cars move like rockets. Hey, if it worked for Justin Beiber, Katy Perry and One Direction, why not Metallica? Our little Danish friend and company get the 3-D concert movie treatment with Metallica: Through the Never (9/27). Ditching the teenyboppers’ behind-the-scenes puff-piece framing device, crafty B-movie director Nimrod Antal (Predators) has cooked up some sort of fantastical side-story about a roadie (Dane DeHaan) being pursued through riotstrewn streets by a horseman as the band plays on. Whatever—it can’t be as surreal as watching the group’s therapy sessions in their last big-screen outing, 2004’s Some Kind of Monster. It’s been seven years since Alfonso Cuaron’s Children of Men set a new bar for vertiginous single-take tracking shots, and he’s spent the last four or five of those working

on Gravity (10/4). A technical breakthrough so unprecedented that James Cameron was recently quoted saying nice things about a film that wasn’t directed by James Cameron, the film stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as two astronauts adrift in lower orbit after a space station mishap. Blending old-school photography with photo-realistic computer animation, Cuaron and his madman cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki had to invent the technology to make these weightless stunts possible. ‘Tis apparently the season for minimalist elemental survival stories, because this fall also brings J.C. Chandor’s All Is Lost (10/18), starring Robert Redford—and only Robert Redford—as a man alone on a sinking ship in the Indian Ocean. A thousand miles in the opposite direction from Chandor’s hyperverbal debut, Margin Call, we’re told Redford has but a single word of dialogue here. (No points for guessing it begins with the letter

“F.”) The 77-year-old Sundance Kid has been earning raves for his purely physical performance, a mean feat when you consider that the last time someone tried a movie like this, Tom Hanks at least had a volleyball to talk to. Speaking of Hanks, Tom’s got his own set of nautical woes in Captain Phillips (10/11). After getting out of the Bourne franchise while the getting was still good, director Paul Greengrass returns to the hand-held, just-the-facts-ma’am docudrama format of his earlier films Bloody Sunday and United 93, this time tackling the harrowing true-life tale of the container ship Maresk Alabama’s attack by Somali pirates. In the title role, Hanks takes another shot at his bizarre Boston accent from Catch Me If You Can. If you’ve seen Dirty Pretty Things, Inside Man or Redbelt, you already know that Chiwitel Ejiofor has been so damn good for so long, stardom is way overdue. Looks like it might finally happen with 12 Years a

Slave (10/18). Rapturously reviewed at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals, director Steve McQueen’s follow up to Shame stars Ejiofor as a free man kidnapped and sold into slavery. A bunch of no-names like Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Benedict Cumberbatch and Paul Giamatti co-star. Fourteen years ago, director Kimberly Pierce’s Boys Don’t Cry came out of nowhere and scored Hilary Swank an Academy Award. But Hollywood can be cruel sometimes, which is the only explanation for why Pierce vanished afterwards and is now stuck remaking Carrie (10/18). Chloe Grace Moretz steps in for Sissy Spacek as the prom queen who takes a batch in pig’s blood. Juli-

anne Moore takes over Piper Laurie’s role as Carrie’s mom. John Travolta and Nancy Allen could not be reached for comment. Back in January at Sundance, I predicted that you’d probably never get a chance to see Escape from Tomorrow (10/11), director Randy Moore’s outrageous phantasmagoria that was covertly shot guerilla-style at Disney theme parks. The famously litigious Mouse House can’t be too pleased with their trademarks being used in this darkly hilarious tale of a bad dad’s perverted meltdown, but we’re told that the film has cleared the legal hurdles and will see the light of a projector this fall. Somebody must have wished upon a star.

t’s fall TV time again, and the big question worth asking: Why? We officially live in a time now where the best shows aren’t on networks, but on cable and streaming video-on-demand services. And they don’t have to appear during the fall. They show up whenever the hell they want. And, yet, networks are still keeping up the antiquated practice of airing new shows that’ll most likely disappear from the airwaves in a month. The big trend among the new sitcoms this fall is certain-to-be-tiresome shows about people dealing with their awful-ass parents. Giovanni Ribisi and Seth Green keep butting heads with annoying fathers Martin Mull and Peter Riegert in the Seth MacFarlaneproduced Dads (Tuesdays, 8pm, Fox), while Anna Faris has to deal with irresponsible mother Allison Janney for the Chuck Lorreproduced Mom (9/23, 9:30pm, CBS). Will Arnett serves as referee for his bickering parents in The Millers (10/3, 8:30pm,

CBS). The Goldbergs (9/24, 9pm, ABC) takes you back to the ‘80s, as Jeff Garlin and Wendi McLendon-Covey scream their way through raising three children. James Caan is the bastard pops in Back in the Game (9/25, 8:30pm, ABC), as a once-promising athlete who gives his ex-softball-playing daughter (Maggie Lawson) a hard time. Will and Grace scene-stealer Sean Hayes tries not to be an awful parent himself as he plays a gay single dad in Sean Saves the World (10/3, 9pm, NBC). It’s all about culture clash with Welcome to the Family (10/3. 8:30pm, NBC), as white and Hispanic parents find themselves becoming grandparents once their teenage children get together and have a kid. And Sarah Michelle Gellar tries to keep eccentric dad Robin Williams on a leash in David E. Kelley’s The Crazy Ones (9/26, 9pm, CBS). There are also sad-ass sitcoms about sad-ass single folk. The confidently hilarious Rebel Wilson plays the resident pathetic fat chick in Super Fun Night (10/2, 9:30pm,

Over on the guys’ side, sitcom killer Jerry O’Connell co-stars with Tony Shalhoub and Kal Penn in We Are Men (9/30, 8:30pm, CBS), about a bunch of divorced dudes living in a swinging singles’ complex. Not all of the sitcoms look gawdawful. The Michael J.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Tuesdays, 8:30pm, Fox) is another Grotesk Fet) LOAD WITH hopefully CHANGES rewarding half-hour, with Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher as part of a APPROVED TO LOAD indd less-than-stellar Brooklyn police precinct. And usual eye candy Malin Akerman tests out her comedic skills as the title character in Trophy Wife (9/24, 9:30pm, ABC). In the hour-long drama department, the most talked-about show is Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (9/24, 8pm, ABC), where Joss The MalcolM X STeleS Whedon is looking to do a weekly, actionSEPTEMBER 14, 2013 – JANUARY 20, 2014 9-4-2013 2:05 PMfemale-friendly drama that will packed, attract both fanboys and the girls they hope rotesk Ultra, to see naked one day. In fact, there’s a lot of sci-fi/fantasy stuff popping off on the networks this fall. Once Upon a Time has gotten so damn popular, there’s a spinoff now: Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (10/10, 8pm, ABC). Sleepy Hollow (Mondays, 9pm, Fox) takes a rather studly Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) and somehow transports him Open Wednesday and to contemporary times. The J.J. Abrams-proFriday Nights duced Almost Human (11/4, 8pm, Fox) is a futuristic police procedural with Karl Urban as a shell-shocked cop and Michael Ealy as his android partner.

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers takes the title role in Dracula (10/25, 10pm, NBC), and there’s The Originals (10/3, 9pm, CW), a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries that has nothing to do with the Motown singing group of the same name. Damn. It’s not just vampires, though—villainy is popping up all over this bitch. James Spader gets all nefarious as a sought-after criminal suspiciously aiding the FBI in The Blacklist (9/23, 10pm, NBC), while Spader’s fellow The Practice alumni Dylan McDermott is a rogue FBI agent who takes a family hostage in the aptly-titled Hostages (9/23. 10pm, CBS). That show is based on an Israeli series, but the serial drama Betrayal (9/29, 10pm, ABC) is based on a Dutch series. As the title suggests, you can expect a huge amount of double-crossing, backstabbing and other salacious, sheisty shit. Meanwhile, Lucky 7 (9/24, 10pm, ABC), about a group of coworkers who wins the lottery, is based on a British drama. The Tomorrow People (10/9, 9pm, CW), about young people who possess powers as a result of human evolution, is also based on a British series. While some networks are going overseas for TV-show ideas, others are going back in time. Taking a cue from Hawaii Five-O, the Peacock Network has rebooted Ironside (10/2, 10pm, NBC), with Blair Underwood slipping into Raymond Burr’s mobile seat. And Reign (10/17, 9pm, CW) takes it back even further—to the 16th century—as it follows the early, juicy years of Mary, Queen of Scots. So, there you have it: Fall TV 2013, in a nutshell. You can now go back to bingewatching Orange is the New Black.

First District Plaza, 3801 Market Street, at 10:00 AM. (EST) Conditions of Sheriff’s Sale for JUDICIAL/FORECLOSURE SALE Ten percent of the highest bid for each property auctioned off shall be deposited in cash, certified check, attorney’s check or money order with the Sheriff by each bidder when his bid is registered, provided that in no case shall less than Six Hundred Dollars ($600.00) be deposited, otherwise upon failure or refusal to make such deposit, the bidder shall lose all benefit of his bid and the property may be immediately offered again and sold unless a second bid has been registered, then, the second highest bidder will take the property at the highest bid price. Additionally, where there is active bidding, the highest bidder, and the second highest bidder, if any must post the entire amount of the cost of the distribution policy for the property at the time of sale by cash, certified check, attorney’s check or money order with the Sheriff. The balance of the purchase money must be deposited in cash, certified check, attorney’s check or money order together with a Deed poll for execution by the highest bidder to the Sheriff at his office within 30 days from the time of the sale. An extension of time for an additional 30 days may be granted at the discretion of the Sheriff upon receipt of written request from the buyer requesting the same, except when a second bidder has been duly registered. Also, if the first bidder does not complete settlement with the Sheriff within the thirty (30) day time limit and a second bid was registered at the sale, the second bidder shall be granted the same thirty (30) day time limit to make settlement with the Sheriff on his second bid. Thereafter, the Sheriff shall be at liberty to return the writ to court. A second bid must be registered on any property immediately after it is sold. The second bidder must present the same amount of deposit that the highest bidder delivers to the Sheriff at the sale. An extension of time under no circumstances will be granted or honored by the Sheriff whenever a second bid is registered on a property at the sale. The first bid or opening bid on each property shall be a sum sufficient to pay all Sheriff’s costs including advertising, all taxes, water rents and municipal claims due to the City of Philadelphia. If there is no other bid price above the opening bid price, the property shall be sold by the auctioneer to the attorney on the writ at that price. The deposit by any bidder who fails to comply with the above conditions of sale shall be forfeited and the funds will be applied to the Sheriff’s cost, then to any municipal claims that the City of Philadelphia has on the property. Finally, if a balance still remains, a Sheriff’s Distribution Policy will be ordered and the money will be distributed accordingly. No personal checks, drafts or promises to pay will be accepted in lieu of cash, certified checks, attorney’s checks or money orders






made payable to the Sheriff of Philadelphia County. The Sheriff reserves the right to grant further extensions of time to settle and further reserves the right to refuse bids from bidders who have failed to enter deposits on their bids, failed to make settlement, or make fraudulent bids, or any other behavior which causes disruption of the Sheriff Sale. Said bidders shall be so refused for the sale in which said behavior occurred and for said further period of time as the Sheriff in his discretion shall determine. The Sheriff will not acknowledge a deed poll to any individual or entity using an unregistered fictitious name and may, at his discretion, require proof of identity of the purchaser or the registration of fictitious names. The bid of an unregistered fictitious name shall be forfeited as if the bidder failed to meet the terms of sale. All bidders are advised to remain at the sale until after the last property is sold. The Sheriff reserves the right to re-sell any property at any time before the end of the sale, upon the successful bidders’ failure to tender the required deposit. The Sheriff reserves the right to postpone or stay the sale of any property in which the attorney on the writ has not appeared and is not present at the sale. Prospective purchasers are directed to the Web site of the Philadelphia Bureau of Revision of Taxes, (BRT) brtweb.phila. gov for a fuller description of the properties listed. Properties can be looked up by the BRT number – which should be cross checked with the address. Prospective purchasers are also directed to the Room 154 City Hall, 215-6861483 and to its website philadox. and to its website at where they can view the deed to each individual property and find the boundaries of the property. PROSPECTIVE PURCHASERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE NATURE, LOCATION, CONDITION AND BOUNDARIES OF THE PROPERTIES THEY SEEK TO PURCHASE. The BRT # refers to a unique number assigned by the City Bureau of Revision of Taxes to each property in the City for the purpose of assessing it for taxes. This number can be used to obtain descriptive information about the property from the BRT website. Effective Date: July 7, 2006

The letters C.P., Court of Common Pleas; O.C., Orphans’ Court; Q.S., Court of Quarter Sessions; C.C., County Court - indicate the Court out of which the writ of execution issues under which the sale is made: S. 1941. 223. means September Term, 1941. 223, the term and number of the docket entry; the figures following show the amount of debt; and the name following is that of the attorney issuing the writ. Attention is called to the provisions of Act No.104, approved July 27, 1955, which requires owners of properties which are used, designed or intended to be used by three or more families, or of commercial establishments which contain one or more dwelling units, to deliver to the buyers of such properties a use registration permit at the time of settlement, under certain terms and conditions. Sheriff Sales are not subject to provisions of the said Act and the Sheriff will, therefore, not deliver use registration permits in connection with any sales conducted by him. Very truly yours, JEWELL WILLIAMS Sheriff City and County of Philadelphia

Annual Public Notice of Special Education Services and Programs, Services for Gifted Students, and Services for Protected Handicapped Students Notice to Parents According to state and federal special education regulations, annual public notice to parents of children who reside within a school district is required regarding child find responsibilities. School districts, intermediate units and charter schools are required to conduct child find activities for children who may be eligible for services via Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. For additional information related to Section 504/Chapter 15 services, the parent may refer to Section 504, Chapter 15, and the Basic Education Circular entitled Implementation of Chapter 15. Also, school districts are required to conduct child find activities for children who may be eligible for gifted services via 22 Pa Code Chapter 16. For additional information regarding gifted services, the parent may refer to 22 PA Code Chapter 16. If a student is both gifted and eligible for Special Education, the procedures in IDEA and Chapter 14 shall take precedence. This notice shall inform parents throughout the school district, intermediate unit, and charter school of the child identification activities and of the procedures followed to ensure confidentiality of information pertaining to students with disabilities or eligible young children. In addition to this public notice, each school district, intermediate unit, and charter school shall publish written information in the handbook and on the web site. Children ages three through twenty one can be eligible for special education programs and services. If parents believe that the child may be eligible for special education, the parent should contact the appropriate Regional Office or Charter School Principal identified at the end of this public notice. Children age three through the age of admission to first grade are also eligible if they have developmental delays and, as a result, need Special Education and related services. Developmental delay is defined as a child who is less than the age of beginners and at least 3 years of age and is considered to have a developmental delay when one of the following exists: (i) The childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s score, on a developmental assessment device, on an assessment instrument which yields a score in months, indicates that the child is delayed by 25% of the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chronological age in one or more developmental areas. (ii) The child is delayed in one or more of the developmental areas, as documented by test performance of 1.5 standard deviations below the mean on standardized tests. Developmental areas include cognitive, communicative, physical, social/emotional and self-help. For additional information you may contact Elwyn SEEDS at (215) 222-8054.

Evaluation Process Each school district, intermediate unit, and charter school has a procedure in place by which parents can request an evaluation. For information about procedures applicable to your child, contact the school, which your child attends. Telephone numbers and addresses can be found at the end of this notice. Parents of preschool age children, age three through five, may request an evaluation in writing by addressing a letter to Elwyn SEEDS at 4025 Chestnut Street, 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19104. Consent School entities cannot proceed with an evaluation, or with the initial provision of special education and related services, without the written consent of the parents. For additional information related to consent, please refer the Procedural Safeguards Notice which can be found at the PaTTAN website, www.Pattan. net. Once written parental consent is obtained, the district will proceed with the evaluation process. If the parent disagrees with the evaluation, the parent can request an independent education evaluation at public expense. Program Development Once the evaluation process is completed, a team of qualified professional and parents determine whether the child is eligible. If the child is eligible, the individualized education program team meets, develops the program, and determines the educational placement. Once the IEP team develops the program and determines the educational placement, school district staff, intermediate unit staff, or charter school staff will issue a notice of recommended educational placement/prior written notice. Your written consent is required before initial services can be provided. The parent has the right to revoke consent after initial placement. Confidentiality of Information: School districts, intermediate units and charter schools maintain records concerning all children enrolled in the school, including students with disabilities. All records are maintained in the strictest confidentiality. Your consent, or consent of an eligible child who has reached the age of majority under State law, must be obtained before personally identifiable information is released, except as permitted under the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The age of majority in Pennsylvania is 21. Each participating agency must protect the confidentiality of personally identifiable information at collection, storage, disclosure, and destruction stages. One official at each participating agency must assume responsibility for ensuring the confidentiality of any personally identifiable information. Each participating agency must maintain, for public inspection, a current listing of the names and positions of those employees within the agency who have access to personally identifiable information. For additional information related to student records, the parent can refer to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) This notice is only a summary of the Special Education services, evaluation and screening activities, and rights and protections pertaining to children with disabilities, children thought to be disabled, and their parents. For more information or to request evaluation or screening of a public or private school child contact the responsible school entity listed below. For preschool age children, information, screenings and evaluations requested, may be obtained by contacting Elwyn SEEDS.

n the basement at 1500 Sansom, of course, there’s Rumor, the sparkliest straight-folks dance club around. And then, a few floors upstairs, one finds a bunch of vaguely young-ish journalists trying to make some sense out of this crazy old world. In the middle, though, is where the season’s excitement lies: the brand spanking new seafood-and-steak joint Ocean Prime, a decadent restaurant and bar that just opened its doors last week with a VIP preview party that raised the stakes for poshness a few notches. / S.H.S.

Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale. Now let’s reel it back in a bit. Years before pumpkin beers were trendy, Brooklyn was very quietly making their annual pumpkin ale under the Post Road label, helping set the stage for the pumpkin-beer boom we now experience annually. Brooklyn’s brew is tame by today’s standards, but it retains a drinkability many others can’t match; its light body, puffy head and lively carbonation are a far cry from the uber-spicy brews that now dominate this style. The pumpkins show through in the flavor without being overpowering, suggesting a sweeter-than-normal Oktoberfest. It’s a great accompaniment to traditional autumn meals, and you can have a pint at Fox and Hound or Falls Taproom.


Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin. When it comes to breweries who release their pumpkin ales way too early in the year, Easton, Pa.’s Weyerbacher is among the guiltiest of the guilty, pushing out Imperial Pumpkin in mid-July. That’s absurd. It’s easy to forgive, though, since the beer is so damn good. At a robust 8 percent ABV, this is no shrinking violet of a beer, either in alcohol content or taste. It’s rich and hearty from the use of real pumpkin—most pumpkin ales don’t incorporate any actual pumpkin, instead deriving their pumpkin-pie-like taste purely from the spices—making it a fat, chewy, sweet brew with oodles of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and cardamom wafting from every glass. There’s a touch of alcohol heat in the finish, too; try it at 2nd Street Brew House, Kite & Key, the Industry and Jolly’s.

Southern Tier PumKing. Come autumn, pumpkin beers are all the rage. People start to crave brews swimming with nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon: the spices that make pumpkin pie so damn nice. Most pumpkin beers offer a dash of such spice and a gentle touch of the orange super-squash itself—just enough to make for a noticeable twist on your run-of-the-mill autumn beer. PumKing, though, by New York’s Southern Tier, takes all that and jacks up the volume to 12 with the explosive sweetness of loads and loads and loads of pumpkin. This is perhaps the most extreme pumpkin beer on the market; you won’t be able to finish a full glass of it, but you’ll be glad you tried. Watch for this to arrive on tap in the weeks ahead.

Stoudt’s Pumpkin. The folks at Pennsylvania’s Stoudt’s Brewing don’t get nearly the credit they deserve as pioneers in the craft beer world. Founded in 1987, they’ve been making great regional brews for longer than almost anyone else. Though they’ve generally stuck fast to tradition, they do a little experimenting from time to time, too—such as this pumpkin-infused twist on their gold-medal-winning Oktoberfest. Mild spices and the faintest hint of pumpkin blend perfectly with the bready caramel malts of the Oktoberfest style, making this a pumpkin beer for people who traditionally don’t like pumpkin beer. Look for it at Baggataway Tavern.


Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. True story: Punkin Ale was a prize-winning beer before Dogfish Head was even a thing, winning the 1994 Punkin Chunkin Recipe Contest a full six months before the brewery officially opened its doors. As with almost everything they do, Dogfish’s take on pumpkin beer is its own: full-bodied and sweet with hints of brown sugar and molasses along with earthy charred pumpkin. They then load up on the traditional pie spices. This isn’t a quaffing beer—not because its 7 percent ABV is particularly strong, but because it’s heavy and bold. Try it at Resurrection Ale House and Moriarty’s Pub. / ERIC SAN JUAN Follow PW’s Year of Beer online weekdays at:

DRINK CITY Drinking Games

Wayne Ave., Wayne, 610.293.9909, Whoever does the best pirate impression in the best pirate costume will win a giant 9-liter bottle of Piraat ale.

St. Practice Daze. September is halfway to St. Patrick’s Day— which means it’s time for the folks at McGillin’s Olde Ale House (1310 Drury St., 215.735.5562, mcgillins. com) to celebrate St. Practice Daze with a weekend of stout and live Irish music Sept. 27–28.

Pumpkin Smash! Look, it’s fall, okay? There is going to be a lot of pumpkin beer. On Sun., Oct. 13, it’s City Tap House (3925 Walnut St., 215.662.0105,

that picks up the proverbial carving knife and runs with it. (That’s a figure of speech. Don’t run with knives.) More than 30 squashtinged drafts will include such brews as Great Gherkin, Punkuccino, Hansel & Gretel and Mr. Yuck.


Wet Hop Rodeo and Ranchero Brunch. Yeah, the pirate thing was fun. But now it’s time for cowboy—now being Nov. 9 at Johnny Brenda’s (1201 Frankford Ave., 215.739.9684,, where the 4th annual Wet Hop Rodeo brings an assortment of fresh hopped beers together with a Tex-Mex brunch.

DRINK CITY Raise Your Glass

Philly’s Fall Cocktails

Eleven new alcoholic formulations that want to shake up your happy-hour habits.


he season has arrived for drinking a richer, more complex array of cocktails. A quick survey of local bars and restaurants shows that, in this regard, Philadelphians will be swigging very well indeed this fall. Hop Sing Laundromat is rolling out a number of new cocktails, from one of the best Manhattans I’ve ever sipped (built on a base of single-barrel, 121-proof Willett bourbon) to the magnificently named “General Tso’s chocolate shake,” a great endof-evening treat swirling with flavors of fresh muddled raspberries, Avión Espresso liqueur, Meletti chocolate liqueur, and Double Cross vodka. It’s subtle, complex, and delicious, the strawberry and shaved orange peel garnishes lending it a stellar brightness. Keep an eye out for more creations from Lêe and his team in the coming weeks and months. Percy Street has been working on a barrel-aged rye cocktail recently: As of the time of this column’s writing, Dad’s Hat Rye was luxuriating in a barrel with Carpano,

Fernet, maple syrup and cranberry. Once it’s ready, it will be finished with black walnut bitters and served, with luck, by the bucketful. Team Solomonov-Cook is also whipping up the “Smashing Pumpkin” at Zahav, based on Don Q rum infused with baharat spice (clove, mace, allspice, and cinnamon), mixed with Madeira and lifted with lime juice. It’s enough to make you yearn for the colder weather to arrive. Bar Ferdinand is also working with the season’s quintessential gourd in their “Old Grand Dad Pumpkin Manhattan”: Think bourbon infused with roasted and pureed pumpkin, cinnamon, all spice, clove, molasses, and nutmeg. So, too, is Twisted Tail with their “Drunkin Punkin,” a Catdaddy Moonshine and Kraken Rum drink with pumpkin puree and more. Barclay Prime is whipping up a notable whiskey one, as well: The “Picture in the Rye” brings together Bulleit Rye, yellow Chartreuse, and gingerbread bitters. It’s not all spice this time of year, though; there are plenty other autumn-appropriate

flavors that are being featured around the region, including the fig-walnut mint julep at Doc Magrogan’s and the fig-honey old fashioned at Isabella, which, unexpectedly and appealingly, also incorporates balsamic syrup and honey. Harvest Seasonal Grill is taking a slightly different approach to mixing whiskey with their eponymous “Cranberry Bourbon,” a gathering of Woodford Reserve, muddled cranberries, agave nectar, and ginger ale. Citron and Rose’s “Kosha Nostra,” a cocktail of rye, absinthe, and horseradish bitters, is possessed of a name I wish I’d thought of myself. Barbuzzo is whipping up the “Normandy,” a Calvados and cinnamon-roasted apple tipple that almost sounds healthy. Vernick is offering a Cognac and rooibos tea concoction called the “Field Gun Envy.” They all are wonderfully indicative of the creativity, risk-taking, and energy that define our local drinking scene right now, and promise a phenomenal season of serious guzzling ahead. / BRIAN FREEDMAN

American Classic

Pennsylvania 6 sounds like good old-fashioned exuberance—and it is.

By Brian Freedman //


Soft-shell miracles: Pennsylvania 6 fries clams like they were meant to be. (Photo by J.R. Blackwell)

tangy, funky goat cheese and yogurt gelato, proved to be a deliciously refreshing way to end the meal. It all adds up to a restaurant that finally fulfills the promise of the bi-level space on 12th Street that, over the years, has had its share of disparate occupants. This is the kind of grownup American cooking that I think we need more of. Those fried clams, it turns out, were harbingers of all the good stuff that was to come. With apologies to HoJo, Pennsylvania 6 is where it’s at. 

This, then, is serious American food devoid of pretense, just as it should be. And it’s served in a space that’s fittingly clubby and full of old-school charm, the blown-up photos on the walls of golden-age Hollywood luminaries amplifying and reinforcing it. I do, however, wish that the wine list were more suitably tailored to the food: The selection of whites you’re presented with, for example, consists of five Chardonnays, three Sauvignon Blanc or SB-based blends, two Rieslings, a Pinot Grigio and a Pinot Gris. With crudos this complex, why no Albariño, no Viognier, no Rueda? Food this well-conceived deserves more interesting wine. There are plenty of solid bottles, yes, but too little range. The cocktail program, however, also under the watchful eye of the charming, welcoming bar manager Ryan Fenton, is full of potential and succeeds quite well right now. Overall, then, Pennsylvania 6 seems to be hitting on the vast majority of its cylinders. Even desserts embodied the unique American fervor that so much of the food here does. Dark chocolate pot de creme, all velvet-textured and paired with caramelized banana, brought me back to banana splits of years gone by—but infinitely better than they ever were. Almond cake, served with macerated strawberries and a

oward Johnson is dead to me now. For much of my youth, following everything from middle-school band concerts to Little League games, my parents would take my sister and I to HoJo for a meal of fried clam strips and milk shakes. And for the longest time—until a few weeks ago, in fact—I held that totemic chain’s fried clams in higher esteem than anyone else’s. They probably weren’t all that great, of course, but they were perfect for what they were, which is no small feat. But then I sunk my teeth into the tender New England jewels at Pennsylvania 6, soft-shell Ipswich miracles breaded and fried until a nutty cocoon crisped up around a center as sweet and briny as some sort of unsullied seashore. Frying clams this well is a lost American art—which is surprising in this age of highly accomplished bistros. Thank goodness, then, that Chef Marc Plessis and company do it, and so much else, as well as they do in their 12th Street digs. For fans of Plessis and his highly successful run at XIX, it should come as no shock that fish and seafood are treated so lovingly here. His lobster roll, for instance, was a wonder of dignified simplicity, the lobster cooked in a court bouillon just to the point of tenderness and not a moment longer, the brioche roll gleefully buttered and toasted until the edges took on the texture of a creme brulee’s crown. On the other end of the oceanic spectrum are his crudos, ambitious setups that, in general, succeed very well. Yellowfin tuna was cast in an earthier light than usual, its accompanying parsley-caper vinaigrette and olives framing the fish in a unique and riveting manner. Kampachi, with its hit of cumin salt and cilantro, and the bright tang of lime and gooseberry, was a gently spicy, vaguely Latin-inspired plating that lingered on the palate long after it was swallowed. Only the fluke was a disappointment: It glowed promisingly within its sheen of curry oil, beneath its bright frizzle of julienned breakfast radish on top, the pine nuts and sea beans providing a toothy counterpoint to the tender flesh, but the fish itself was underseasoned to the point that it was barely discernible in context. That wasn’t an issue with anything else I tasted; this is a kitchen that revels in the sort of exuberant flavors that should define this school of American eating. Simply named “ham & cheese” is an homage to the glories of southern-comfort gluttony. You slather toasted slices of baguette with unctuous, cheddar- and cream-cheese-rich pimento cheese, lay a slice of pickled green tomato on top, and drape it all with a muslinthin sheet of Benton’s ham. Alongside a beer from the wellconsidered selection, it’s manna. It’s also a great prelude to the bistro steak, a generous cut of teres major rubbed with cumin and black pepper, grilled up, and accompanied by some of the best Swiss chard in town, the texture almost creamy, the better to match up with the intensely rewarding creamed corn. It all comes with spritely little marble potatoes which, on their own and especially dragged through the red wine beef sauce, are lovely little interludes ... but they didn’t really stand a chance when compared to the duck fat fries. (If no one at the table orders a dish that comes with them, make sure to get a side.)

BRANZINO 261 S. 17th St. 215.790.0103. Cuisine: Fish-focused and inspired by Northern Italy. Salmon belly crudo arrived marching across a brick of pink Himalayan salt and glistening a similar color. Drizzled with lemon oil and brightened up with radish and cucumber, it was a deceptively simple preparation, resonant and restrained all at once. Charred octopus embodied all the tender meatiness you’d hope for, and without the gnawing chew it often falls victim to. Knobs of morcilla and coins of fried fingerlings lent it a lovely Spanish air without ever feeling heavy-handed. Speck-wrapped Alaskan halibut was just barely overcooked, but that was a minor hiccup: A quick drag of that otherwise excellent fish through the almond gazpacho and a singing brown butter moistened everything right up. And, as Chef Mike Stollenwerk did with a particularly memorable serrano-wrapped cod back at Fish a few years ago, accompanying roasted grapes and cauliflower gave it a sweetness and depth that jibed perfectly with the ham. He also topped it with what he described as dried milk powder solids, an ingenious, delicious preparation that involves straining the fat out of brown-butter solids and then re-cooking them in butter before mixing them with roasted marcona almonds. It’s like butter on steroids: An A-Rod of lactic goodness. (B.F.) CHEU NOODLE BAR 255 S. 10th St. 267.639.4136. Cuisine: Asian-inspired, but far from beholden to it. Hand-torn noodles with lamb neck, earthy and deep and lifted with the mystery of cumin, rested alongside pickled mustard greens. BBQ pig tail, the fat all melted and sexy, the moist meat glazed with a gorgeous Korean barbecue sauce and snappily crisp from a stint in the deep fryer, hinted at the togarashi from its initial sear. On its bed of ramp kimchi, this was a meal in itself. Pork belly bun played in the same end of the flavor pool, but here the sweet richness of the pig was cut with spicy cucumbers and the cosseting comfort of a riff on a steam bun whose recipe owes plenty to English muffins. Long beans with burnt onion were milder but no less rewarding, their green flanks charred and nutty and echoing the clumps of fried quinoa clinging to them like remoras on a whale. (B.F.)

FITLER DINING ROOM 2201 Spruce St. 215.732.3331. Cuisine: American bistro. Potato gnocchi melt on the tongue with the slightest pressure, bathing the palate in all the Chartreuse butter perfume they’ve absorbed. So, too, have the escargots studding the plate. The crunch of hazelnuts, the melting gnocchi, the springtime brightness of ramps (wild onion) and that phenomenal butter were more than enough to pull it all off. A salad of roasted beets were livened up with pickled ones alongside, and the tension between the sweetly acidic latter and the sweetly earthy former found its counterpart in the intersection of buttermilk dressing and mushrooms, including maitakes and black truffles. Globe artichoke soup was a hearty flavored wonder, complicated beautifully with La Quercia prosciutto and fresh garbanzos. (B.F.) HONEY’S SIT ‘N EAT 2101 South St. 215.732.5130. Cuisine: Comfort food, with particular love lavished on breakfast and brunch. Eggs are done impeccably, from the simple to the baroque. Order them sunny-side-up, and the whites arrive crisp-edged and nutty, anchored by yolks that jiggle lasciviously, almost flirtatiously. Scrambled and rolled into tortillas, they serve as the sponge for accompanying flavors of salsa verde, red onions, pureed black beans and the rest, rounding out those components and somehow amplifying them. Scrambled, stuffed into a biscuit sandwich and given greater properties of unhealthfulness with the addition of breakfast meat, they become a dietician’s worst nightmare and a hangover’s best friend. Speaking of hangovers, an occasional special of macaroni and cheese pancakes justifies overindulging the night before just so that these shockingly airy miracles can be the next morning’s salvation. What by all logic should be boulder-inthe-stomach gluten boluses are in fact remarkably elegant, despite the richness of their flavor. The Honey Cristo works in a similar fashion, the subtly sweet French toast balanced out with smoke-kissed ham and nutty Swiss cheese, two eggs staring out on top and imploring you to tuck in. (B.F.)

LUCHA CARTEL 207 Chestnut St. 267.825.7103. Cuisine: Mexican- and Latin-inspired food. Each thumbnail-sized piece of the crispy fish tacos was perfectly fried and crunchy with beer batter. The chorizo burger was better—traditional and jalapeno-spiked sausages blended with ground beef into a flavorful 9-ounce patty, topped by a crown of fried queso tropical. The real bright spot at Lucha, it seemed, was with pork. A happy hour carnitas taco was anchored by pork confit swirling with life from its overnight orange-juice marinade. Each bite left the faintest aroma on the tongue, the result of smart additions of cinnamon, cumin, clove, and Mexican Coca-Cola. Cochinita pibil was well conceived and executed, each bite ringing with the pleasant tang of guajillo peppers, a whiff of achiote and orange juice. (B.F.) NOORD 1046 Tasker St. 267.909.9704. Cuisine: Dutch-centric Northern European. The rabbit leg confit maintained a moistness and delicacy that the notoriously difficult-to-cook meat rarely does. Forked with zuurkool (think of sauerkraut) as well as a coin of smoked pork sausage and maybe a tender carrot slice, this was as hearty as it was thoughtful. So, too, were the bitterballen, gorgeous fried meatballs of roux-creamy braised pork lifted with nutmeg and mustard. They arrived four to the order, a neat little procession of rich, palate-coating goodness. One of them had developed a crack in its carapace, and the impossibly moist center had begun to ooze out: one of the sexiest things I’d seen all month. A special of chicken croquettes, also perfectly fried, embodied a different side of the concept, seasoned with onion powder and thyme and based on the previous day’s impeccable rotisserie chicken. (B.F.) SAIGON CUISINE 4000 Chestnut St. 215.222.9777. Cuisine: Vietnamese, with occasional forays to China. Their pho is excellent, built on a base of broth whose clarity and purity of flavor sets it apart. Unlike so many more deeply developed pho broths in the city, this one is unique for its lightness, delicacy and remarkable freshness. As such, it took exceptionally well to the traditional accompaniments of lime, basil,

scallion, onion, sprouts and cilantro. The tofu roll succeeded for a similar reason: With its fried batons of tofu all mushroom-y and earthy, this gently basilperfumed appetizer was memorable for its freshness and clarity as well. Shrimp stew arrived sizzling in a clay pot, and the music of its crackling procession to the table accurately heralded the treats tucked inside. The shrimp, all plump and generous, luxuriated in a sweet-tangy sauce that, by the time it had cooled off enough to taste, glazed the outside of each curled-up crustacean. (B.F.) STRANGELOVE’S 216 S. 11th St. 215.873.0404. Cuisine: Southern-inspired gastropub. Fried catfish bites, all creamy and tender inside their crackly carapace, were lovely on their own and even better when dragged through a spicytart remoulade. Mushroom torta, constructed on a base of Mexican-style flatbread, proved to be a clever reworking of the more familiar ones that have grown so tired lately. And its topping, like the best of the dishes here, managed to be both restrained and rewarding: arugula, lemon, a truffle vinaigrette and a spread of butter-cooked corn pureed with honey. Even the fried green tomatoes, if their crown of crabmeat ravigote, tomatoes and cucumber was a touch too wet, ultimately won me over with the sheer pleasure of its flavors. (B.F.) XI’AN SIZZLING WOKS 902 Arch St. 215.925.1688 Cuisine: Chinese. Biang biang noodles, each one as long as the entire track of the former R5 and jauntily ragged along the edges, practically springs back against the molars with the first few chews. Glistening with a deeply savory, unexpectedly refreshing ginger scallion sauce, they are, for $5.95 a bowl, among the great bargains in Chinatown. “Special Ma-la hot,” all shimmering red like some sort of liquid ruby, and with chili flakes clinging to the edge of the ceramic vessel, contained an entire universe of treats: Cabbage and broccoli and slippery vermicelli and beef like a shot of umami straight to the heart. And then there’s the glorious liang pi, a heaving helping of chewy noodles, glutenous wheat nubs like some kind of soaked bread, thin-sliced lengths of cucumber and a sauce as bracingly piquant-spicy as any in the ‘hood. (B.F.)

Monster Mashup Slip into Alley of Nightmares for some terrifying comedy.


s the Halloween season approaches, horror fans looking to quench their thirst for the macabre a little early have an opportunity to laugh themselves to death at this year’s Fringe Fest, when Philly Improv Theatre presents Alley of Nightmares, a live sketch-comedy show inspired by classic horror anthologies, such as Tales from the Crypt, Creepshow and the ever-popular Twilight Zone. With “the Gatekeeper” as their guide, creator Paul Triggiani, along with co-creator Rob Baniewicz, intend to thrill and chill audiences with laughter while paying homage to a beloved genre. PW spoke with Paul about their on-stage exploits. In your own words, describe Alley of Nightmares. Alley of Nightmares is a sketch comedy show based on classic horror anthologies. In horror anthology stories, things always begin in the “real world” and descend into horror when something bizarre or fantastic happens. Sketch comedy is the same way. We just blended the two. What was the inspiration for the show? Rob and I both grew up reading Tales from the Crypt and watching The Twilight Zone and The Kids in the Hall. When we met doing sketch comedy (in Meg & Rob and Secret Pants, respectively), we connected on those interests and realized that a lot of the sketches we were writing could easily be horror stories if not written as comedy. It started there. Is your goal to frighten your audience, or are you more interested in its comedic value? We’re in this

to give people a good show and make them laugh. One of our cast members, Matt Schmid, wanted me to stress this: This is a comedy show. If anything in this show legitimately scares you, you probably shouldn’t see any more comedy shows. Tell us how you got into this business in the first place. We both got into comedy because that’s what you do when you’re an anxious person, I guess. We both trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and People’s Improv Theater in New York and with Kevin McDonald from The Kids in the Hall, but the best teacher you can have in comedy is just doing it. Audiences are the best teacher we’ve ever had. Have you been a fan of the horror genre for long, or is this a more recent favorite? Rob is and has been a horror fan for a long time; he directed a short horror film that screened in the TromaDance film festival, among others; he also frequents Exhumed Films screenings. I’m much less of a horror fan because I’m not any fun. How do you think the Cryptkeeper would fare in an episode of The Twilight Zone written by Alfred Hitchcock? We decided that if this happened, the Cryptkeeper would wake up in a world where everyone takes his puns literally. That said, he’d be fine. He’s a corpse. / KENNEDY ALLEN Alley of Nightmares runs Sept 19-22. Times vary. $12. Mainstage at the Adrienne, 2030 Sansom St.


s this year’s Fringe Festival winds down to a close, there are still some worthwhile productions to catch. Two women on the verge of obliteration—one, a white trans chick amid America’s ruins and the other a Persian in medieval times—have their say as doom looms in Unstuck Theater’s haunting XY Scheherazade (above, Sept. 19-22 at Plays & Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey Place). And Kaleid Theatre examines humanity’s lack of connectivity despite our over-gadgeted, social media-dominant existence in Glow (below, Sept. 20-22 at First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia, 2125 Chestnut St.; contains strong language).

Land of the Lost, Found

If you missed MinorityLand, don’t miss this chat with director Gabriela Sanchez.


s the social and economical climate of Philadelphia begins to shift in new directions, reticulated communities are being altered for the sake of urban renewal. Universities and corporations expand and infringe upon the delicate network of our beloved neighborhoods for the sake of student housing, strip malls and luxury condominiums. Despite the swelling within these gentrified areas, the concerns of the affected communities go unheard, collecting dust upon the shelves of urban well-being for the sake of higher property values. MinorityLand, the inaugural production of Power Street Theatre Ensemble that had its three-day Fringe Fest run at North Philly’s Taller Puertorriqueño over the weekend, focused directly upon the impact of metropolitan reform and the people it affects. Gabriela Sanchez, founder and co-artistic director of Power Street Theatre Company, explains why “minority land” exists, and why it shouldn’t. Describe the show in your own words. MinorityLand is a world where a community of diverse people have struggles, passions and thoughts that become alive on stage. Power Street Theater’s debut production, MinorityLand explores the existing conditions and the effects within the parameters of the “minority” terminology. What does it mean to be a minority, whether if that is through gender, sexuality or race? Within a “minority” paradigm, one’s identity is bound by the confines of ignorance and labeled as inferior when in fact, those hearts and minds possess first-rate potential and the capacity to become a positive change agent for themselves and the world at large. Also, MinorityLand tackles what it means to be a community. When gentrification strikes in a neighborhood similar to Temple University, residents are forced out, and everything they have ever known is gone. What inspired the project? My inspiration for MinorityLand was to give a voice to the unheard voices; those same exact people who are considered “minorities” are my family, friends, students, mentors, and the list could go on and on. As a young Latina girl, I grew up in University City, where there wasn’t much representation of Latinos at that time; however, a variety of cultures empowered the streets with loud music, block parties and food that would satisfy every taste bud. My second home was North Philly—“El Barrio”—where diversity continued to exist in the

streets and always captured my eye. Each block became a family over the years and experienced ups and downs together. I must say, I miss those days when kids made something out of nothing, when everyone looked out for one another and when unconditional love overpowered dysfunction. Diversity is my inspiration as an individual and an artist, which explains my need for creating Power Street. Power Street Theater Company’s mission is to provide each young voice with a venue to become a catalyst for positive change through artistic expression. What is one of your fondest memories within the community that the show focuses on? MinorityLand focuses on a community of people who laugh, cry, dance and argue together while becoming a family of their own. Each character is so clearly different by their physical appearances, but most importantly, by their way of thinking. The characters are constantly challenging one another on spicy topics; however, we learn as the audience that the unconditional love that Mama Julia instills in each one of them overpowers any negative energy that tries to rip them apart. Mama Julia reminds me of my grandmother, who was the leader of the block, the wise lady who always told a story with a lesson to learn and would give her last plate of food to a homeless person. She was a woman who everyone loved and respected. How do you think members of a minority community can resist the more detrimental affects of gentrification? I think that members of a minority community can resist the more detrimental affect of gentrification by reaching out to various community organizations that can educate them on how to buy homes instead of renting for 20+ years. In theory, I believe that teaching people how to help themselves is extremely effective. People can eventually own their own homes, and the communities will be more stable by educating people on how to purchase homes, budget and, most importantly, maintain a mortgage. I constantly think about how we can move forward as a community and create equal opportunity. Something that comes to mind is to not consistently depend on the system, but instead depend on yourself. My dad would always tell me this saying: “You don’t give a man a fish. You teach a man how to fish.” / K.A.

Review: A Doll’s House One of the most audacious productions at this year’s Fringe Festival is not a site specific work or a bizarre blend of disciplines. Instead, it is a staging of an iconic play in a conventional theater. Nevertheless, EgoPo Classic Theater’s season opening production of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House is daring because it puts the entire play in the hands of a child. Normally performed with a cast of at least five, director Brenna Geffers’ bold production relies on the talent of 14-year-old actress Mackenzie Maula. Already a Barrymore Award nominee for her performance in Walnut Street Theatre’s revival of Fiddler on a Roof, Maula’s age is fitting for a drama about a woman, Nora, who is treated both as a child and a doll to play with by her husband, Torvald. Smartly directed by Brenda Geffers and wittily adapted with a streamlined text, the production introduces Maula as a young girl imagining what life will be like as an adult. Using dolls to represent the characters in Ibsen’s drama—Nora is Barbie, Torvald is Ken, and the evil Krogstad is represented by a Darth Vader action figure— Maula has an engaging playfulness, but the production doesn’t fully realize some of its darker elements. That said, Maula is clearly a promising young actress, and in its most potent scenes, Geffers’ production raises a number of troubling concerns about the many challenges faced by teenage girls in a society that remains obsessed with physical beauty. / J.COOPER ROBB Through Sunday, Sept. 22. $15-$25.

Hang Your Hat Here With Boot & Saddle, indie promoter extraordinaire Sean Agnew’s got a brand new bag. By Max Ufberg //


ean Agnew is a music geek. The 36-year-old owner of multiple concert ventures, including promoting agency R5 Productions, hotspot venue Union Transfer and the recently-reopened Boot & Saddle gushes when talking about his favorite performers, pausing three or four times mid-sentence to reconsider his answer. He eventually settles on a tie: The Evens, one of punk legend Ian MacKaye’s lesser-known bands, and the post-rock outfit Godspeed You! Black Emperor—bands that only a music geek would know. For someone who’s been promoting shows for some 17 years, his words still flow fast and fervent when the conversation turns to music. It’s a good thing he still cares so deeply, too. It must make his seemingly gargantuan workload at least a little bit easier to handle. For years, Agnew had his hand in virtually every underground venue in the city, so it didn’t take long for the rest of the local entertainment industry to began to take notice of his small but active company. In 2008, Avram Hornik, owner of Four Corners Management, which owns nighttime spots like Drinkers Pub/Tavern and Morgan’s Pier, approached Agnew about expanding his business. “Four Corners reached out to me and were like, ‘Hey, we noticed that you’re doing shows at all these ballrooms, churches, art spaces, etc. Would you ever be interested in doing it in your own space, if we partnered up?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah,’” recalls Agnew. “For a few years, we actually were looking at a bunch of different buildings together. We looked at like 30-plus buildings, and nothing was ever really right. We didn’t rush into it; we took our time.” After finding a venue in the then-abandoned Spaghetti Warehouse and bringing in another partner, New York City promoter The Bowery Presents, the 1,000 person-capacity Union Transfer was born. Buoyed by UT’s latest success, his latest venture, the renewed and refurbished Boot & Saddle, is a much more intimate venue. Replete with a 60-seat, craft beer-filled, folk-artadorned bar area, Boot & Saddle, which had remained vacant since it closed shop in 1995, brings the feel of the Old West to the not-so-old hipsters of Philadelphia. Murals of cowboys adorn the pub-style walls, a lasso hangs above the bar top, and Waylon Jennings drawls slowly out of the speakers. The concert hall itself, which is separated from the bar area by two huge swinging doors, fits 175 people. The decision to open Boot & Saddle, like most of Agnew’s business ventures, was an informal one. “Everything was going well at Union Transfer, so we were like, ‘Hey, let’s open up a smaller room.’ It was that kind of discussion,” he says. “Up until a few months ago, R5 was just me, and now I have a friend helping, so, we’re about one-and-a-half,” Agnew tells PW with a laugh. Considering the range of bands that R5 books for other venues—the calendar shows everyone from indie rock behemoths Neutral Milk Hotel to the lesser-known locals Work Drugs—it’s amazing that Agnew ever had any time to focus on his own venues, although he admits he’ll be scaling back R5 a bit for 2014. Agnew got his start in the industry in 1996 when he moved from Ardmore to Philadelphia to attend Drexel, where he

began working for the college radio station, WKDU. “That’s where I met a bunch of other kids who then started getting me into more current punk bands at that time, the mid-90’s. And then I started to going to different punk shows and getting involved in the scene that way,” says Agnew, who had been listening mainly to the classics of punk and hip-hop, like Black Flag and Public Enemy, prior to that. There was no grand plan to build up R5 Productions, he says; he was just looking for a way to get involved in the music scene. “The first year we did shows, I maybe did seven shows. The next year, 14 shows. The next year, 20. It kind of just took a very organic route, where it was small baby steps. And then eventually, I started doing more and more bands. It was the mid-90’s, so there weren’t really websites or email lists, so it was just pretty simple: Make a flyer, tell your friends, and get word out that way.” Of course, Agnew has his share of criticism, much of which centers on R5’s current dominance over the local indie music scene. “Some people think that we’re a big entity or we’re not super punk. Some people kind of give us shit for that,”

he admits. “But the overwhelming majority has been super positive.” Even if there are some critics, he’s still got a pretty starpowered support system. “We’ve played several shows where Sean has been the promoter. He’s got a very personal touch, so I got to know him. It’s kind of a certain camaraderie. I mean, he knows that I’m from Philly, and we all try to help each other out as much as you can,” says Philly native Alec Ounsworth, frontman of indie darlings Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, who played the Union Transfer’s inaugural show in 2011. Ounsworth, like so many of his musical peers, has full confidence that Boot & Saddle— like any project Agnew undertakes—will come out successful. History suggests as much. “If it’s anybody that’s going to try to put this kind of thing together, I would trust that R5 can pull it off,” adds Ounsworth. “They’re good.” That praise must mean a lot to Agnew. Because despite his high-profile partnerships and the ultra-cool bars, he’s still just a guy living out a music geek’s dream. 

The Family

A Curious Yet Worthwhile Mess Robert De Niro gets his groove back in The Family.


obert De Niro has been sleepwalking through so many movies over these past 15 years that it’s downright shocking to find him as alert and engaged as he is in The Family, a bizarrely atonal farce from The Fifth Element director Luc Besson. Wearing shorts, a bathrobe and a big bushy beard, De Niro puts a spring in his step as Giovanni Manzoni, a former gangster who ratted out the boss and has been bouncing around France courtesy of the Federal Witness Protection Program ever since. Much to the consternation of his crotchety case handler (Tommy Lee Jones), old habits die hard. Giovanni’s wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) can’t seem to shake her penchant for arson, while their teenage kids (Glee’s Dianna Agron and John D’Leo) are chips off the old block: He runs every high school cafeteria like a con game, while she savagely fends off aggressive suitors with a tennis racket. It’s a cheerful family full of sociopaths, wildly over-reacting to every perceived slight with bursts of graphic violence. As they’re a bunch of ugly Americans abroad, you can probably imagine that the snubs keep coming. Besson doesn’t stint on the R-rated bloodletting, which lends an odd aftertaste to the breezy slapstick surrounding it. Working from Tonino Benacquista’s novel Malavita, Besson and co-screenwriter Michael Caleo liberally sample from a variety of plotlines, most of which are abandoned after a scant few scenes. At first, Giovanni intends to write his memoirs, but nothing really comes of that, so he moves along to pounding on plumbers, torturing city officials and blowing up chemical plants in a civic-minded attempt to improve the tap water quality in their tiny Normandy village. There’s a neighborhood barbecue that goes nowhere, a high school swindle that is never quite explained, plus an odd detour in which Agron seduces her math tutor. Meanwhile, there’s still a $20 million bounty on Giovanni’s head, specifying that his wife must be raped and his children murdered, too. This is a weird movie. Despite all the carnage, De Niro greets every scene with twinkly-eyed delight. Pfeiffer revisits her Married to the Mob shtick, and the two kick up a relaxed, sexy rapport. But Bobby saves the best banter for Jones, aggravating the pokerfaced fed to no end, even dragging him along to a local film society screening of Goodfellas. The Family is a curious mess, but the cast is having a grand old time. (Sean Burns)

A desperate dad: Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman, right) questions Det. Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) about the probe into his daughter’s abduction.

A Visual Feast in a Garbage Can Jackman and Gyllenhaal star in the bizarre, gorgeously-shot Prisoners, one of the best-looking stupid movies ever By Sean Burns //


here was a certain type of hand-wringing Hollywood melodrama that became briefly inescapable shortly after 9/11, during the walk-up to the Iraq War. Filmmakers preoccupied with revenge and its consequences focused inward, none too subtly playing out global concerns on a domestic stage. In the Bedroom got there early, and Eastwood’s Mystic River was probably the best of the bunch. Meanwhile, a rash of already-forgotten also-rans like 21 Grams, Reservation Road and Snow Angels throbbed with doomy grandeur, thrusting average ‘Mericans into dour, no-exit narratives staring long into the abyss, with tedious results. At least for the first couple of reels, Quebecois director Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners feels like a throwback to this genre that nobody particularly missed. In a bleak Pennsylvania town where it rains all the time, Hugh Jackman’s Keller Dover takes his son deer hunting while gravely intoning ominous wisdom and prayer. It’s Thanksgiving Day, yet it remains difficult for us to celebrate with the Dover family because the camera angles loom low, and a pervasive, menacing hum all but drowns out their dialogue. Neighbor Franklin Birch (Terrence Howard) plays an off-key version of “The Star Spangled Banner” on his trumpet, letting you know up front that this movie is going to be incredibly restrained. And all that’s before the youngest Dover and Birch daughters go missing after dinner. A ramshackle RV was spotted in the neighborhood earlier that afternoon. It’s owned by a creepy simpleton (Paul Dano) with the IQ of a child and questionable personal hygiene. Jackman’s mad-as-hell Dover, already kicking at full Sean Penn “Is that my daughter in there?” steam, is convinced this kid must be the culprit. But Detective Loki (no shit, that’s really his name) ain’t so sure. Here we must stop and note that Loki is played by Jake Gyllenhaal as a collection of such bizarre actorly tics that most of the time, he seems to be doing an extremely mean-spirited impression of Ryan Gosling. Walking slow and staring blankly with an ever-present toothpick in his mouth, Gyllenhaal has no character whatsoever to play on the page, so he shoves all his chips into the center of the table with weird affectations that do nothing for the film except maybe make you wonder about the PA police force’s lax policy on scary neck tattoos. As always happens in this type of movie, Jackman is driven to take the law into his own hands. Truth the told, I’d probably do the same if the investigating officer in my daughter’s abduction carried on like a bondage-club bouncer with Asperger’s Syndrome. Before long, Dover

has kidnapped Dano’s whimpering weirdo, chained the kid to a radiator and is beating his face into paste as an advanced interrogation technique. Then he drops to his knees and prays for forgiveness because it’s that kind of movie. So, the table is set for a classic guilt-feast of becoming a monster to fight monsters—another glum, familiar parable of grief driving good men to bad deeds. Yet this is only the beginning, folks. Turns out Prisoners is just getting warmed up. Taking a sharp-left turn into Crazy Town and stomping on the gas, screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski ups the ante with an alcoholic pedophile priest who keeps the moldering corpse of a child killer in his smelly basement. There are buried, mutilated child mannequins, a secret code involving mazes with no end that’s all part of an organized “war against God,” and even actual booby-traps filled with poisonous snakes. If all this still doesn’t sound hambone goofy enough for you, Melissa Leo is in the picture. I think it is somewhere around the moment when Hugh Jackman builds a Home Depot torture chamber that Prisoners goes bonkers. Honestly, the glum portent becomes a lot more watchable after losing its goddamned mind. (I wasn’t aware so many homes in Pennsylvania come equipped with underground dungeons and lairs. Realtors should stress that more often.) Guzikowski’s screenplay is so elaborately convoluted and icky, I was shocked to discover it was an original idea and not an adaptation. Everything about this story structure stinks of a shitty novel somebody bought at an airport. But it must be said that this is one gobsmackingly gorgeous pile of garbage. Legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins recently made the jump to digital, and as with last year’s Skyfall, he’s expanding the boundaries of low-light photography using practical sources. A candlelight vigil for the missing girls is illuminated with an almost heavenly glow, while a late-movie race against time, shot from inside Detective Loki’s speeding car in the rain (of course it’s raining) blurs into a poetic abstraction of blown-out streetlights and blurred neon signs. The man is an artist, and Prisoners is one of the best-looking stupid movies I’ve ever seen. 

TRIBUTE GATHER AROUND THE TABLE: CONVERSATIONS ON THE HISTORY, IMPACT, AND IMPLICATIONS OF FOOD IN OUR SOCIETY During the 2013-14 academic year, our Beyond the Page public programming series will frame critical conversations around the common theme of food.

Expounding on E. A meditation on the late, great E. Steven Collins. By Nia Ngina Meeks //

t’s been over a week, and I’m still struggling to wrap my head around the fact that I’ll no longer hear E. Steven Collins, whose resonant voice flowed like warmed maple syrup and whose insights outpaced Wikipedia. Even writing this remembrance is surreal. E. was a Philly staple, having spent much of his professional life delivering news and opinions for radio audiences hungry to make sense of the controversies that engulfed the world. At every outlet and at every turn, from WRTI to WHAT to WDAS to Radio One, he used his perch to crusade for truth, justice and the idealized— if not always realized—American Way. Exercising the right to vote. Curbing institutional racism. Raising families. Building communities. Fortifying schools. Creating meaningful jobs. Cultivating small and minority-owned businesses. Cheering Philly. All were recurring themes of his 40-year radio career. But defining E. as merely a voice on the radio, as just a talk show host, would be a disservice. Indeed, he stood at the nexus of a galaxy, where the worlds of civic engagement, commerce, politics and journalism orbited and sometimes collided with each other. The range of men and women he had on speed dial attested to his stretch of influence, and points of passion. So did those who admired him. Grassroots groups called on him for help opening doors or airing a good word about good works. Corporate players chatted him up so they could figure out how to be better citizens. Elected officials and those vying for office, of both parties, sought his counsel on policy approaches—and suffered his verbal lashes if their moves failed to put people first. He was among the city’s dwindling cadre of great public citizens, people who used their influence and Rolodex to further goals beyond and greater than themselves. Given today’s standard, his outlook was both throwback and remarkably fresh. When I first met him, I used to think it was his early Catholic education that instilled his sense of service. It wasn’t unusual for him to have five events to attend in the same day, six days in a row. He told me later that his drive came largely from his desire to live up to the example of his father, who modeled early on what it meant to be a man. Not just in his household, but in his community, and what those responsibilities meant, for him and those watching him, especially his two sons. There was no greater joy E. took than in being a father, from his days as a single dad to his years as a blissfully married one. Loving his wife, raising Rashid and Langston, helped define him as a man, he told me. Almost fanatically, he would seek to help other men discover that joy. In a culture that too often touts the antithesis—especially among black men—his example helped affirm and guide others, as the faces of and reflections from grief-stricken men mourning him reminded me. As did those of the many women, who chuckled at his flirtatious ways, knowing his unwavering devotion to the love his life, Lisa. As mourners, we span generations, ethnicities, even cities. He had an unfailing eye for talent and would help you advance on your career ladder, regardless of your career or rung on that ladder. He invested time and money, vacillated from strict coach to your biggest cheerleader. Male or female. Gay or straight. Black, white, Asian, Latino or “other.” I was among those beneficiaries, for E. had a hand in coloring my Philly experience, from my early days until now. The Unity Day festival he helped create. The protest buses to D.C. from Progress Plaza he helped organize to push for a holiday for the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and against apartheid in South Africa. The concerts and parties he promoted. The Concerned Black Men Inc. scholarship programs and Black History Month bees. The Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists, fiercely proud in being among the earliest members of an organization that started here and went national,

birthing chapters and careers across the country. We were teammates in the crew that conceived and produced the Mid-Atlantic Emmy-Award-winning 2003 mayoral debate between incumbent John Street and challenger Sam Katz. And I’ll never forget the Afro wig he donned last year to help Philly boogie into the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest Soul Train line to honor Don Cornelius. Or the many stories. Or the open invitation to the family pool. From the serious to the zany and the spaces between, he has been a presence in my life. And in speaking with so many people this past week, I realize that my story is just a variation of a theme. There are countless other people with their own E. stories. He told me once that, “E. stands for ‘excellent,’ but my mother called me Ernest.” It just as easily could have stood for exceptional or extraordinary; for he was both. For me, it will stand for everlasting, because that will be the stretch of his impact on my life. And I know I’m not alone.  Radio One will present a public memorial for E. Steven Collins on Sat., Sept. 21, from noon to 3 p.m. at Sharon Baptist Church, 3955 Conshohocken Ave. In lieu of flowers, the Collins Family asks that tax-deductible donations be made to Concerned Black Men Inc., 7200 N. 21st St., Philadelphia, PA 19138.

Free association: One of the most thrilling artists in the game keeps our collective intrigue. For fans of: Prince/Big Boi/Miguel + sexy cyborgs, Laura Mvula/Lianne La Havas. (Bill Chenevert)

An international exposition presented by the Global Philadelphia Association | Ph: 215•241•5495 | | @globalphilly13

On Oni Pond (ANTI-) Sounds like: Local weirdo heroes strike again. Their fifth in about a decade, and it’s their best-cacophony that comes back to a piano and a twisted sense of humor. Free association: The moments of sophistication are more striking than ever before. For fans of: Zappa/Beefheart + Maps & Atlases, Dr. Dog x Mr. Bungle, West Philly savants. (B.C.)


B.O.A.T.S. II #METIME (Def Jam) Sounds like: The emcee with the laziest flow on Earth and guest-game star on countless tracks astounds with more uninspired tracks about booty, herb and money. Free association: At least he knows that he’s essentially a parody of himself already. For fans of: Chief Keef + Trinidad James x Drake/Lil’ Wayne, ign’ant funny shit. (B.C.)


Apar (True Panther Sounds) Sounds like: The Basque foursome of alt-rock dance comrades delivers on their fourth, a delightful sonic treat of synths, industrial beats and joyful electric noise. Free association: Once in a while, a little Spanish charm pushes through the fray. For fans of: Two Door Cinema Club x Cut Copy, New Order + Tanlines, spanish techno. (B.C.)


AM (Domino) Sounds like: An excellent fifth LP from the Sheffield boys who deliver the beautiful balance of thrash, snark and classic rockness that Humbug promised. Free association: This is how UK piss and vinegar should always manifest itself. For fans of: The Jam/Clash/Strokes/Streets/ Cribs, Bloc Party + Klaxons, pints and fights. (B.C.)


Feels Like Home (Warner Bros.) Sounds like: The 51-year-old country rock siren’s eighth is certainly a little more Memphis than L.A., and that’s really okay. Bring on the boots and barbecue. Free association: It’s always nice to see a once-giant talent aging gracefully. For fans of: Lucinda Williams + Neko Case, Vince Gill/Brad Paisley, hate for Lance. (B.C.)



Currently streaming on Netflix Captive audience: The Office fans; decent human beings; people who like a good cry with their comedy. Moment of truth: Just when you think you’re ready to dismiss Ricky Gervais as an annoying, dickish fame whore, here he comes with a show which reveals that not only is he a humanist at heart, but he also has a heart. Gervais plays the title character in this mockumentary sitcom, a mentally handicapped yet utterly decent nursing home employee. While some more cynical viewers may choke on the rampant sentimentality (and this show extols a lot of emotional moments in its seven episodes), this well-orchestrated mix of hilarity and pathos shows just how much of a silly softie Gervais really is. Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy. (Craig D. Lindsay)


Wednesdays, 10:30pm, Comedy Central Captive audience: Black folk—especially those who know who Baratunde Thurston is; people who’ve given up on Dave Chappelle ever coming back to TV. Moment of truth: The Mad TV alumni-turned-sketch comedy duo return for a third season full of giggle-inciting sketches that’ll likely end up becoming viral video sensations. (Seriously, these guys are really popular on YouTube.) You kinda have to be diehard fans to get their absurd, race-based humor, especially since some of their familiar, sillier characters— the stubborn substitute teacher, all those football players with the wacky names—make appearances in the first two eps. Of course, President Obama returns, along with his always-agile anger translator, Luther. So, we’re definitely all good here. Emmy or phlegmmy: Emmy. (C.D.L.)


Sundays, 9pm, HBO Captive audience: Scorsese fans; The Sopranos fans; those strange people who watch this instead of Breaking Bad on Sunday nights. Moment of truth: Even though this show has a superior cast (with Steve Buscemi leading the charge as Nucky Thompson), awe-inspiring production values and both Martin Scorsese and Mark Wahlberg serving as executive producers, this sprawling period piece about early 20th-century criminal kingpins still hasn’t clicked with audiences. Now in its fourth season, the drama continues to be well-done yet largely unremarkable. Ron Livingston and Jeffrey Wright show up as the latest gents out to get a piece of Thompson’s Atlantic City pie. Hey, as long as Michael Kenneth Williams is around as Chalky White, I’m straight. (C.D.L.)

10 Worst Tracks of All Time OK, maybe they’re not the most abysmal songs ever. But they’re damn sure drive me crazy. By Bill Chenevert //


he other night, I heard Smash Mouth’s “Walking on the Sun,” and a visceral, potent wave of hate washed over my being. For no good reason, I became angry at the world and, more specifically, angry at the world for letting that goddamn song reach my eardrums at that moment. And that was because, at one point in time, we rewarded this piece of shit with sales, video watching, concert tickets and radio listens. There are some bands and some songs that eventually come to feel like a personal vendetta against you. Then something really sad happens: Other people laud it and celebrate it. You need only look at the video for Nickelback’s “Rockstar” to have one of those moments where you just want to kill someone—hell, anyone. I started talking with friends and collegues about what it would mean to make a list of 10 of the worst songs of all time. What are we really talking about here? Can we objectively name 10 songs, and what kinds of songs would they be? The weird thing that crystallized, as specifics started tumbling into place, is that so much of this rubbish is from the late 1990s. Folks were extremely productive in the realm of bullshit production; they just kept dirtying the atmosphere with their garbage. Now, does this mean that, as a 30-year-old man, I’m inclined to hate on the inane schlock that populated my middle-school dances and Total Request Live? Perhaps. Or does it mean that we’re on to something, and that maybe there was something in the air or water in the late ‘90s that we can look back on with a squint and a headshake? Also, to be clear, there are a handful of artists and tracks that are going to be relegated into the obvious category, one in which there is no dispute that it is true artistic refuse. We’ll call that the “Agreed” category, which you’ll find at the end. But before that, here are 10 tracks that should surely be contenders for the worst song of all time. Creed, “With Arms Wide Open” (2000) It was hard choosing just one Creed song to include in this collection. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be completely out of the question to make such a list with 10 Creed songs, would it? But this is the song that people sing when they want to make fun of Scott Stapp (with good reason), so here it is. Aerosmith, “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” (1998) Sure, Aerosmith’s a deserving Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. But like all bands that have good intentions but want to keep on making money for decades, there’ve been some missteps. Oddly, this is their only number-one hit, and it is forever linked to NASA bullshit and the imagery of Liv Tyler and Ben Affleck making out. Smash Mouth, “All Star” (1999) Personally, I’m against the phrase “rock” in most

capacities: “Ooh, you’re really rocking those heels.” “Are you ready to rock?!” And it is fairly argued that this song popularized the phrase as we know it today. And for that alone, Smash Mouth deserves to die of gonorrhea and rot in hell.* Goo Goo Dolls, “Iris” (1998) Again, a 10-track playlist of Goo Goo Dolls could be a suitable “10 Worst Songs of All Time List” all its own. But this one’s really the worst, isn’t it? And it was huge—another giant hit from a shit movie that became a huge pop radio success. Also, do you not envision Meg Ryan riding a bike all armsin-the-air, with the wind flipping through her little curls? Train, “Hey, Soul Sister” (2009) No explanation needed. LFO, “Summer Girls” (1999) Also known as the “Abercrombie & Fitch song,” this was a thing, again, in the summer of ‘99. It just seems so obvious that it’s an incredibly bad idea to wrap your band’s identity around a trendy nationwide retail chain. Black Eyed Peas, “Boom Boom Pow” (2009) This list wouldn’t be complete without a little horrific hip-hop, would it? It was tough to decide between this one and “I Gotta a Feeling,” but “Boom” seems like a better paradigm for the way in which B.E.P. decided to dumb everything down as much as humanly possible in order to churn out hits. Despite its huge success amongst pre-teens, we adults know idiocy when we see it. Sugar Ray, “Fly” (1997) Man, this one had staying power, right? And while it may not have been the worst song ever (maybe not even the worst Sugar Ray song of all time), Mark McGrath is clearly one of the biggest douchebags to ever exist. Dude co-hosts Extra now. In the words of Ed Lover, c’mon, son. Nickelback, “Rockstar” (2006) Just watch the video, and please, if you can, explain to me its merits, or plead your case for why this doesn’t deserve to be on this list. Limp Bizkit, “Break Stuff ” (2000) I’m not even that mad at “Nookie”; it’s actually kinda fun. Even “Faith” has its moment. But the way in which Fred Durst personified white male aggro assholery was truly despicable. In a way, I thank him for showing me the cookie cutter males to stay away from for the rest of my life. Agreed: CrazyTown, “Butterfly.” Dave Matthews Band, “Ants Marching.” Hootie & the Blowfish, “Only Wanna Be with You.” 2gether, “U + Me = Us (Calculus).” Baha Men, “Who Let the Dogs Out?” Rebecca Black, “Friday.” *Not really, it’s from Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.

SAVAGE LOVE By Dan Savage // My question is one of etiquette. My lesbian wife and I live in an apartment. The noise pollution between flats can be pretty bad. Anyone who lives in the building is aware of this, and keeping noise down after certain hours is a common courtesy. I wouldn’t play loud music after a certain hour, or let doors slam, or break out the drum kit. If any of these things happen after around 11:30 p.m. on a work night, I don’t think I’d feel any qualms about going around to whoever is being inconsiderate and asking them to keep it down. But what about noisy sex? My neighbor’s girlfriend is pretty loud during sex. If the racket were being made, say, before midnight, I could bear it. It would be gross, because I think he’s slimy, and he has a terrible hipster mustache, but I wouldn’t be writing to you. I’d just cope as best I could and try to fall back asleep. But what about sex at crazy o’clock? Is it OK for us to pound on the wall and ask them to keep it down? What’s your opinion? Sleepy Lesbians Next Door

Closeted gay men don’t use colored T-shirts to send messages to out gay men. They use Craigslist. Look, PID, Jeffrey Dahmer—aka the Milwaukee Cannibal—ate a friend of mine. By which I mean to say: Some gay people are insane. I’m not saying you’re in danger of being drugged, raped, butchered and eaten by this guy from your writing group. But the guy is—if your account is accurate—more than a little unpleasant and a whole lot batshit. Confide in some friends in your writing group about what’s going on, and be prepared to leave the group and/ or form a breakaway group if Mr. Red Sweater continues to detect clues in your wardrobe. Also: Do not spend any more time alone with this guy. Someone who would accuse you of making super-secret passes at him via red T-shirts is capable of making baseless accusations about much worse. And finally, PID, a bonus pro tip: Writers don’t always need a writers’ group to write. Sometimes they just need to write.

GAY AND COUPLED AND NOT MONOGAMOUS? A Savage Love reader and sex researcher is studying “relationship satisfaction among nonmonogamous gay couples.” His research is focused on gay male couples that have sex with other men but not relationships with other men, i.e., not guys in poly relationships, just open ones. If you’re gay, coupled and nonmonogamous but not poly, and you have a few minutes to spare for science—science!—take the survey at 



The failure to immediately answer certain questions in the negative is equal to answering in the affirmative. Examples: “Are you gay?” “Did you fuck my sister?” “Is that your butt plug?” Any attempt to avoid answering these questions—issuing a nonde-


september 118 -

I was in a monogamous relationship with a woman for two years. We split up and remained platonic friends. Months later, on a drunken night, we had sex. At that point, neither of us had slept with anyone else. After we had sex that night, the sexual lion was out, and I slept with two others (using protection, of course). Now my exgirlfriend and I may get back together, and she has asked the question: Have I slept with anyone else? So far, I have managed to avoid answering and, yes, we are currently sleeping together. Do I tell her? Blowjobs And Rights Of Privacy

Straight male here. I took a writing course, and some of us students created a writing group. We meet and workshop the things we’ve been working on. One of the guys in the group is gay, and a while ago, he confessed that he had very strong feelings for me. I didn’t have a problem with this, but I told him that I wasn’t into guys. The other day, he sent me an email telling me there was something he wanted to discuss. We met for dinner, and he told me that he felt like I had been sending him messages to indicate my interest in him. He said that this was cruel and that he felt like I was teasing him. When I asked him for examples, he told me that he noticed that I had started to dress like him, and that this was sometimes a way closeted men showed interest in other men. He mentioned that one week he had worn a red sweater, and the following week I had worn a red T-shirt. I never showed any interest in this guy. I never led him on; this entire thing has taken place purely in his head. I told him all this, and now he says he is hurt and doesn’t want to see me at the group. He suggested that we share the group, alternating meetings, but I refused. Am I being too harsh? Pulled Into Drama

p h i l a d e l p h i a w e e k l y. c o m I

I happen to agree with Robert Lopez, Jeff Marx and Jeff Whitty, creators of the Tony Award–winning musical Avenue Q, on the subject of apartment living, thin walls and noisy sex: “You can be as loud as the hell you want when you’re makin’ love.” Or, in this instance, your creepy neighbor with the hipster mustache and his girlfriend can be as loud as the hell they want when they’re makin’ love. But you and your wife—their annoyed neighbors—can be as loud as the hell you want when they’re making love. You can pound on the walls, SLND, make your displeasure known, scream and yell, etc. And even if your neighbors don’t take the fucking hint and quiet the fucking the fuck down, SLND, the noise you make may bring their annoyingly loud sex to a quicker end. The females of certain species— including our own—get loud during sex, i.e., scream and yell, because it helps the males of their species climax more quickly. (Female copulatory vocalization: It is a real thing with its very own Wikipedia page. Look it up.) If his girlfriend’s vocalizations are turning your inconsiderate mustachioed hipster neighbor on, the screams of his two lesbian neighbors could push him past the point of no return. Squicked out by the thought of giving your inconsiderate hipster neighbor an aural reacharound? Look at it this way: The quicker he comes, the quicker it’s over, and the sooner you can get back to sleep.

nial denial (“Me? Gay? Why would you think that?”), requesting an unnecessary clarification (“You mean your sister?”), stalling for time (“Can we talk about this later?”)—serves as confirmation that, yes, you are gay and/or fucking the sister and/or the owner of that butt plug. “Have you slept with anyone else?” is right up there with “Did you gay fuck my sister with that butt plug?” Your attempt to “avoid answering” the question was the answer to the question: Yes, you fucked other people. So unless this woman is an idiot, BAROP, you don’t need to tell her. She knows.
