“For 40 Years, I was tortured with unbearable indigestion”

Confessions of an acid reflux victim “And How I BEAT the indigestion Nightmare that Almost Killed Me!”

63 year old Ralph Burns enjoying a spicy-hot portion of Lobster Fra Diavolo. Just 15 minutes after taking AloeCure®

I used to get what I called ‘Rot Gut’, like my stomach's rotting out!”

By Ralph Burns; “Former” acid reflux sufferer

Here’s My Story: I've Suffered With Acid Reflux for Almost 40 Years Now. Unless you experience it; you can’t imagine how horrible it is. Every time I ate spicy foods I would get what I called "ROT GUT". Like something was rotting in my stomach. But now I can eat anything... No matter how spicy. Even if I never could before. Let me explain… For the better part of my life; I purposely avoided a lot of foods. Especially ones with even a tiny bit of seasoning. Because if I didn't, I’d experience a burning sensation through my esophagus— like somebody poured hot lead or battery acid down my throat. Add to that, those disgusting "mini-throw ups" and I was in "indigestion hell".

What was I gonna do? Keep taking the pills, or suffer with problems that could ultimately be my demise”.

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY October 5 - 11, 2011

Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. But nothing worked. Or if they did, it would only be for a brief period. And then boom! My nightmare would return. Sometimes, I felt like I was dying. The pain was unbearable and nothing could make it stop. But then my wife, who occasionally suffered with the same problem; gave me one of her prescription acid blockers. It was a miracle. I felt like I could live again. Because before that, I was just miserable. I wanted to kill myself. But thankfully, it worked, and worked well. I felt great, until about one year ago; when I read an FDA warning that scared the heck out of me. It went something like this… FDA WARNING! Using proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on a long term basis, increases your risk of hip, bone and spinal fractures. That's a particular concern to me, since many acid blockers are PPI's. I've gone through two back surgeries and bilateral hip replacements. I had to ask myself, could PPI's have been responsible for my medical woes? After all... “The Recommended Treatment for Prilosec®, Prevacid® and Other PPI's is Only 14-DAYS, I Took Them for 14 YEARS!” I was “between a rock and a hard place”. Stop using the PPIs and I'm a “dead man in the water”. It would be unbearable. I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I’d have to go on a water diet. But that FDA warning was scary. I knew I had to

stop or else risk developing spinal stenosis. My mother had that. And I watched her die a horrible death. Her spine just fractured. It was the worst death. She didn't deserve that. And neither do I. I had to quit. So I stopped taking PPI's for a day or so. But my indigestion was worse than ever. I would rather take the chance of a spinal fracture than to live like that again. I tried everything. Even started using home remedies like Apple cider vinegar. But it just felt like I was pouring even more acid down my throat. Then one day at dinner, a friend of mine said "why don't you try an aloe drink?" I said "aloe drink"? Jeez. That doesn't sound good at all!” The next day he brought me a case of something called AloeCure®. I was skeptical, but I was desperate! So instead of being an ingrate I decided to try it. I was shocked! AloeCure® tasted pretty good too. It has a pleasant grape flavor that I actually enjoy drinking. I decided to experiment. I stopped taking the PPI's altogether and replaced it with a daily diet of AloeCure®. Then something remarkable happened… NOTHING! Not even the slightest hint of indigestion. And here’s the best part. The next day we had Italian food — my worst enemy. But for the first time in 40 years I didn't get indigestion without relying on prescription or OTC pills and tablets. Finally, I just didn’t need them anymore! I was so thrilled; I wrote the AloeCure® company to tell them how amazing their product is. They thanked me, and asked me to tell my story... The story that changed my life. I said “Sure, but only if you send me a hefty supply of AloeCure®. I just can't live without it." But don't believe me. You have to try this stuff for yourself. I recommend AloeCure® to anyone who suffers with the same problem I did. It gives you immediate relief. You'll be grateful you did. I sure am. It's the best thing that's happened to me in a long, long time. TRY IT 100% RISK-FREE! The makers of AloeCure® have agreed to send you up to 6 FREE bottles PLUS 2 free bonus gifts with every order— they’re yours to keep no matter what. That’s enough AloeCure® for 30 days of powerful digestive relief, absolutely FREE! But hurry! This is a special introductory offer, reserved for our readers only. Call Now, Toll-Free!

Sometimes simply stepping up and being yourself can be a defining act of courage and bravery. Bravo, Steph.

PATRICK, via Really well done profile of a wonderful person. I have been a fan of Stephan’s song writing for years. I was really moved by this piece and the courage it took to be true to who he really is. I wish him all the best. EMMKAY, via

Not Down With Brown Regarding Randy LoBasso’s feature on mayoral candidate Karen Brown: Balls or no balls, she’s still a democrat with liberal beliefs and is embarrassingly inarticulate. Why would someone with no clue and less experience in managing a city think she can run the fifth largest in the country? The new republicans in Philly can do SO much better.

Tail Spin Regarding Brian Freedman’s review of Headhouse Square’s Twisted Tail: You are judging harshly. The food could be better but there is enough to choose from to make this the best thing to happen to blues bars in Philadelphia since my favorite place on South Street closed. The atmosphere, the music, the service, the bar—shame on you for this pissy review. TOM, via

March for change: More than two million black men descended upon Washington, D.C., in 1995.

Blacks from across the country head to Philly for the second Million Man March. By Shahida Muhammad


P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY October 5 - 11, 2011 •

amal Johnson has no clue about the Million Man March. After all, the 22-year-old was only 6 when the historical gathering summoned more than two million black men to Washington, D.C., on Oct. 16, 1995, for the Holy Day of Atonement. “I never knew anything about that march,” he says, sitting in a Germantown barbershop. His remark elicits sadness from a middle-aged client seated across from him who shakes his head in disbelief. Barber Kyle Mitchell takes time out from cutting a client’s hair to school Johnson: “I will never forget that day; all those black men standing together peacefully— these young guys need to see that.” As Mitchell recalls the event, the younger men in the barbershop listen in amazement. “I remember getting into D.C. very early in the morning and just seeing thousands of black men everywhere. Everyone was in good spirits,” Mitchell says. “It was a sight to see.” Black men were asked to go back home and start anew, taking responsibility for themselves, their families and their communities. The event created such a wave of black unity and pride that there were jump-off gatherings like the Million Women March, the Million Family March and the Millions More Movement. It even prompted Director Spike Lee to make a film about the aftermath, called Get on the Bus. The generational disconnect that distances the younger guys in the barbershop like


Johnson against the older ones like Mitchell is what Farrakhan and local organizers hope to bridge during the 16th anniversary of the Million Man March being hosted in Philly this weekend. Nathan Washington, 19, says he doesn’t “know what anybody could say to change things. It just seems like things never change, they just get worse.” Washington’s lost two friends to street violence and says he knows others who have been involved in the wave of media-labeled “flash” mobs that plagued the city for two summer months and prompted Mayor Nutter to give the demonizing, “you’re an embarrassment to your race” speech. For Rodney Muhammad, local Nation of Islam minister and member of the event’s organizing board, the problems with the youth relates to the previous generation’s failure to uphold the principles of the original march. “The issues that plague our communities now are a direct result of the violation of the pledge we all took that day,” the minister says. It was a pledge to pursue economic development, strengthen family community, and moreover, proclaim to never engage in violence: “I pledge that from this day forward I will strive to love my brother as I love myself. I, from this day forward will strive to improve myself spiritually, morally, mentally, socially, politically and economically for the benefit of myself, my family and my people.” I pledge that from this day for-

ward I will never raise my hand with a knife of a gun to beat, cut, or shoot any member of my family or any human being except in self-defense. Philly is said to have had the largest contingency of men at the original march, with more than 200,000 from the city in attendance. In a city where black males remain in crisis—of the 249 homicides in Philly so far this year, 84.3 percent of the victims were black—many in the community say there’s no better time or place for a summit. “I think this is one of the best times to have something of this nature in this city,” says Joel Patterson, a 24-year-old West Philly native and recent college grad. Patterson believes his generation needs something to inspire them but adds that there must be some long-term plan implemented to continue to address these issues. “Young people need to see that they can make a difference and be part of change,” he says. While this year’s weekend-long convention is focused on many of the same issues that were addressed sixteen years ago—hunger, economic disparities and violence with a particular focus on bringing out the city’s youth—there is one major change. Unlike the original march, this one is open to women as well. “The youth, women and people of all races and ethnicities are encouraged to come out,” says Rodney. “To get answers where there are questions, remedies where there are problems and healing where there is pain.” n

n a line that wrapped around the block, black men of all ages waited mostly in silence for food. It reminded Kenny Gamble—and no doubt countless others who drove or walked by—of a scene from the Great Depression. But it was just the other day, on Spring Garden Street near 12th, that the songwriting legend came upon this setting. “It’s a mess down here” in Philadelphia, says Gamble, who’s been working on com-

And it’s because of all this that Gamble is helping to organize the Millions More Movement’s celebration of the 16th anniversary of the Million Man March at the Convention Center on Oct. 7-9. The Millions More Movement, spearheaded by firebrand Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in 2005, will convene to commiserate the apparent failures of the first march in 1995 and address the steps needed to solve the city’s problems—which local organizing leaders say are a mirror for issues across the nation. No. 1 on the list? Hunger. Poverty is up everywhere in the U.S., but blacks in Philly are being hit especially hard. A walk along Ridge Avenue or through parts of West and North Philly, to gaze on the dilapidation and listlessness, attests to the stats. The 2010 Census shows Philadelphia at 27 percent poverty overall— compared with 24 percent before the financial crisis in 2008. Black adults are at 31

percent poverty, and black children are at 36 percent. Thirty seven percent of blacks are unemployed (females more than males). And the stats don’t bode well for whites, either: 19.2 percent live in poverty now, compared with the year 2000, when the level was 14 percent. And Pennsylvania’s First Congressional District—encompassing everything east of Broad Street in Philly, the airport and parts of Delaware County—ranked second in the nation in hunger after the economic crisis, according to the nonprofit Food Research and Action Center. The local organizing committee is taking immediate action by asking all conference attendees to bring a nonperishable food item to donate. Then they’ll get down to the nitty gritty: serious discussions about the other problems plaguing black Philadelphia—joblessness, incarceration rates and crime—and the solutions. Gamble, chairman of the local organizing committee, says the goals of the anniversary celebration are to motivate, coordinate and mobilize a consciousness. Education will be the big focus, which is why youth will have face time with the Millions More Movement leadership on Oct. 8. The next day, Farrakhan will deliver the keynote address, titled “Atonement, Reconciliation and Responsibility.” The committee organizers emphasize that addressing race is the step, after hunger, to healing the city’s wounds. “Let’s put it to bed,” says co-organizer Bilal Qayyum. “Let’s have an honest discussion about race,” he says. Qayyum was named co-chair of Mayor Nutter’s Commission on African American Males, created last month, to follow through with goals established by the Father’s Day Rally in four key areas: health, criminal justice, economic development and education. They’re charged with submitting annual reports to the mayor in those areas. In fact, it was Qayyum’s idea to reinstitute the commission that was established by Mayor W. Wilson Goode Sr. in 1991 (which goes to show how much things have improved since then). The group believes that narrowing the black-and-white divide can begin now because “a lot of white folks are experiencing what black folks experienced,” Qayyum says. “The same folks who are blocking you out are who blocked us out. It ain’t me and my people who are keeping you folks from getting gold clocks at retirement.” Qayyum adds that the old prejudices aren’t relevant any more. After all, Philly isn’t just a black and white city; it has all shades of Latino and Asian in between. “We need to work together. If there’s a crisis in the African American community, there’s a crisis in the city ... There’s a saying about African Americans. When America’s got a cold, African Americans get pneumonia.” n

Citizens Bank Park workers blast Aramark on contract negotiations. By Eric Augenbraun

Wage war: Aramark employees say management is keeping them down.

Inside Citizens Bank Park on Saturday night, the mood was as joyous as the Phillies off their 11-6 rout of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the National League Division Series. Just outside the stadium, however, the anger was palpable among rallying ballpark food and beverage workers. On Sept. 18, ballpark workers voted 515 to 275 to reject Aramark’s final contract offer. Aramark—subcontracted by the team to provide ballpark concessions—and their employees, who are represented by UNITE HERE local 274, have been engaged in a protracted dispute that has seen employees work the entire season without a contract. This past Saturday, workers unhappy with their previous contract and with the state of negotiations gathered on the sidewalk outside of the Citizens Bank Park employee entrance to have their voices heard. Wearing union hats and T-shirts and toting union picket signs, the initially small group handed out leaflets to passers-by and marched in a circle banging on buckets and raising chants such as, “No contract, no peace.” When the game let out, the protesters’ ranks swelled to about 100. Workers’ demands center around wages, benefits and the opportunity to work. Presently, a concession-stand worker at Citizens Bank Park earns $11/hour, according to a release from the union. They seek wage parity with Aramark workers at Boston’s

“A lot of my co-workers work in all three buildings down here at the sports complex,” says Adam Franklin, a beer vendor. “ ... Same boss, same paycheck. Aramark says ‘No, that’s not one full-time job, that’s three part-time jobs.’ They do this so they can deny people benefits.” Fenway Park, who make $12.32/hour along with a guaranteed annual raise of 65 cents per hour averaged over four years. Aramark has proposed just a 30 cent raise for workers at Citizens Bank Park, the union adds. According to Briheem Douglas, who has been a concession worker at the ballpark for eight years, this is unacceptable. “This is not just a side job to me,” he says. “I use this job to support my family, my kids. We just want them to bargain in good faith.” But turning working at Citizens Bank Park into a “side job” appears to be exactly what

Aramark intends to do. “A lot of my co-workers work in all three buildings down here at the sports complex,” says Adam Franklin, a beer vendor. “They work for Aramark, they do the same job in all three buildings, same boss, same paycheck. Aramark says ‘No, that’s not one full-time job, that’s three part-time jobs.’ They do this so they can deny people benefits.” In fact, currently only 240 of the 1,500 workers at the ballpark are eligible for basic health benefits, according to the union. Beer vendors like Franklin, who are paid only in commission and tips, complain that they have seen their paycheck shrink in recent years because of purposeful overstaffing and restrictions on the number of hours they are permitted to work. “While my pay is down about 35 percent from 2008, I have co-workers whose pay is down 60 or 65 percent,” Franklin says. “People have had to get jobs elsewhere. Aramark’s position when they made us their last, best and final offer three weeks ago, they said ‘This is our best offer and if you don’t like it you can find work elsewhere.’” Representives for Aramark did not return repeated calls for comment. Workers are quick to point out the apparent contradiction between the team’s recent success on the field and at the box office (they have sold out 204 consecutive regular season games) and Aramark’s treatment of its employees. “We need to win with Aramark,” Douglas says. If Aramark remains unresponsive to workers’ demands, further escalation is possible, adds Rosslyn Wuchinich, an organizer with Local 274. Workers can take some comfort in knowing they are not alone in this fight. State Rep. Kenyatta Johnson of the 186th District was on hand to lend his support. “I’m supporting the people who make this city great ... It’s the workers who make the stadium a success, which in turn makes our city a success,” he said. In addition, Michael Weiner, the executive director of the Major League Baseball Players Association, sent along a letter to the protestors that reads in part: “We know that you have an important role in the operation of Citizens Bank Park. Along with the players on the field, you are a big part of the ballpark experience ... I urge you to stick together in your struggle, and please know that the MLBPA and the Philadelphia Phillies players are with you in your efforts.” As the game neared its conclusion and fans began to trickle out, a number of fans—many of them no doubt buzzed from beer they bought from Aramark vendors—gave a cheer and a thumbs up to the protesters. Franklin believes the majority of fans are behind them, “If we’re better taken care of, the fans are better taken care of. And you’re going to have a better fan experience.” n

So far, neither pepper spray nor mass arrests have put a halt to Occupy Wall Street—if anything, it’s galvanized and intensified the 2-week-old movement. But if you think New Yorkers are pissed off, just wait until Philadelphia, the original cradle of the revolution, shows the world how it fights the power. In solidarity with their exasperated comrades to the north—who’ve been gathered in the heart of Manhattan’s financial district since Sept. 17 to voice their frustrations with the wealth disparity between the haves and have-nots in America (as well as the lack of jobs, corporate greed, bank bailouts and myriad other issues)—hundreds of likeminded Philadelphians have joined together in the past week under the Occupy Philly banner. Taking its cues from Occupy Wall Street and the socalled “Arab Spring” uprisings in the Middle East, Occupy Philly is in the process of choosing a location and start date for its own protest encampment somewhere in the city, and at the same time trying to recruit more people to the cause. But while the burgeoning movement’s unified message and specific demands have yet to be clearly defined, there’s little doubt that protesters are fueled by enough passion and righteous anger to get Occupy Philly up and running and ready to make a scene. Like Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Philly has thus far been a leaderless movement, but it does have a handful of selfdescribed facilitators trying to move the formation process along. Take Nikolas Zalesky, a 29-year-old father of two, who just got a job as an assistant financial planner after nearly two years on unemployment. Zalesky recently moved from his Northeast Philly apartment back to his parents’ home in Harleysville in order to make ends meet. A committed member of the Socialist party, Zalesky blames big Wall Street investment banking firms like Goldman Sachs for destroying the nation’s economy, leaving people like him as collateral damage and escaping accountability because of their sizable political donations. “They pay [politicians] for deregulation, they gamble with our money, they lose, they get bailed out and

The movement: Members of Occupy Philly (left, center) make their way to the group’s first meeting. This past weekend in New York City (right), hundreds protested under the Occupy Wall Street banner.

and trash committees, though people repeatedly stand up to declare what the occupation’s primary message should be. “The Federal Reserve is corrupt!” one shouts. “We need a resource-based economy,” says another. “People of color are being exploited!” yet another says. “We can discuss the message next time, we need to get through this stuff tonight,” pleads one facilitator. The pros and cons of various potential protest sites are considered: Rittenhouse Square, City Hall, Independence

“If these CEOs see that there’s thousands of people around the country watching their every move now and they decide to stop gambling with our money and our future, then we’ve accomplished something huge.”


Mall, Love Park, the Federal Reserve Building and the Ben Franklin Parkway among them. A pair of lawyers discuss the charges protesters could face—disorderly conduct, defiant trespass and conspiracy included—and try to steer the group toward occupying state rather than federal property, explaining that anyone arrested during the occupation would likely have an easier time dealing with the “more forgiving” Philadelphia court system. “Federal court is the opposite,” says attorney Lawrence Krasner. “Federal court in Philadelphia is one where the jurors are coming in from Reading and Lancaster and a lot of other places where they don’t have much love for free speech, and the judges are much more conservative.”

channel his dismay over losing his job at the South Street Diner a month ago. “People need to realize that when we’re together, the people at the top will fear what we can do,” he says. Meanwhile, facilitator Amanda Geraci—a 29-year-old from West Philly—recounts her experiences at Occupy Wall Street the previous week, where scores of protesters were arrested and in one widely reported incident, an NYPD officer pepper-sprayed a group of protesters who didn’t appear to be doing anything illegal or posing a threat. “It was intense, it was beautiful, a little scary,” she says. “I had a lot of friends that got arrested or were roughed up by the cops. But the amount of solidarity surrounding the response to the police was amazing. Nobody got violent. Nobody was like, ‘Fuck this, I’m going home, they win.’ They were like, ‘We expected this and we’re gonna keep going on.’” Zalesky says that while there is, of course, the potential for violence—or that some people might try to hijack the thus-far-peaceful movement for their own pernicious purposes—he doesn’t envision a scenario in which Occupy Philly turns into a riot. “We don’t outgun the police force, so I don’t think anyone wants to fight a battle they’re guaranteed to lose, and in the process lose our cause and our respect,” he says. Inside the church, the somewhat slapdash three-hour meeting is spirited, contentious and joyful all at once— much like how one imagines the debates between the framers of the U.S. Constitution may have gone, except, you know, with plenty of women and people of color participating in the decision-making, too. In keeping with the protocol established by Occupy Wall Street, curious hand gestures are a part of the proceedings— participants raise their arms and wiggle their fingers when they agree with what someone has to say, lending an even more religious-style fervor to the get-together than the surroundings already provide. Logistical issues dominate the meeting. Geraci and two other facilitators guide the animated discussion toward setting up medical, safety, food, comfort, outreach, bathroom

give themselves $13 million bonuses and we pay, and they don’t care,” he says. “People are fed up, and that’s why this is finally happening.” Zalesky says he caught wind of the Occupy Wall Street plans a few months ago via several leftist websites, and when he saw the demonstration taking hold in lower Manhattan a couple of weeks ago, “it was a ‘wow’ moment. It was like a key fitting into a lock, and it just opened me up. I was like, ‘we need to do that here.’” Fellow Philly facilitator Sean Kitchen set up an Occupy Philly Facebook page on Sept. 24, with Zalesky providing most of the status updates, and within a few days they had a couple thousand followers. Last Thursday, an inaugural Occupy Philly planning meetup was scheduled to be held at the anarchist South Street bookstore Wooden Shoe. When it became clear that the expected participation was going to exceed what that small space could handle, the gathering was moved to the cavernous United Methodist Church across the street from City Hall. About 150 people—some wearing Guy Fawkes masks, others blowing horns, many shouting: “We are the 99 percent!” (a reference to the oft-cited distinction between the nation’s wealthiest 1 percent and everybody else)— marched from Wooden Shoe to the church, along with a police escort, where they joined with 200 more people standing on the sidewalk. “I’ve been waiting for this since I left my parents’ home 50 some years ago,” exclaims 70-year-old South Philly resident Jacob Russell, who sports a black bowler hat and feathers dangling from both earlobes as he rails against the rich hoarding the nation’s wealth. “These kinds of movements have brought about changes,” he insists. “It was the threat of revolution of the homeless coming to Washington in 1932 that helped motivate FDR to pass progressive legislation. This can work, and I’m prepared to give my life to make this succeed.” Nearby, 20-year-old Ron (who declines to give his last name) says Occupy Philly seems like a good way for him to

Cop block: Scores of protesters were arrested in New York City last weekend.

But Zalesky thinks too many messages could dilute Occupy Philly’s impact. “We need to keep a clear focus on Wall Street and say, ‘We want our money. You need to be held accountable,’” he says. “If these CEOs see that there’s thousands of people around the country watching their every move now and they decide to stop gambling with our money and our future, then we’ve accomplished something huge.” Whatever form and place Occupy Philly ends up taking, Zalesky says he’ll be right there on the front lines. “I’ve got a family, and I don’t want a terrible future for my kids,” he says. “I’m not sitting back saying, ‘What I really wanna do is protest because it sounds like fun.’ I’m doing this because I feel like I have to.” n For the latest Occupy Philly information, visit

Krasner, who says he will represent any Occupy Philly protesters who may get arrested, brings up the hundreds of protesters taken into police custody during the 2000 Republican National Convention in Philadelphia. “Those cases went on for four years and there was a really serious effort to put a lot of people in jail for a long time,” he says. “The result of those cases that I was involved with, none of those people spent one day in jail beyond the time they spent immediately after being arrested.” Wiggling fingers give way to rapturous applause. A straw poll held near the end of the meeting determines that Occupy Philly will make its stand on state property, but ultimately neither a location nor a start date for the occupation is decided upon—only a date for the next planning meeting, slated for last night at the church (where the movement is hoping to finalize the site and date). A handful of people voice their displeasure—“Choose something!” yells one; “What are we waiting for?” shouts another—and a few leave in a huff. But after the meeting, others say they are heartened and happy about what transpired. “We’re moving forward and it’s going to happen and I’m ready for it,” says 25-year-old Larry Swetman of Ardmore. “People weren’t cooperating too much, but that’s what happens when you get large groups of humans together,” says dreadlocked North Philly artist and rapper Dayvt Vaune. “But I’m feeling very positive about the whole situation right now. It’s just a matter of everybody getting past themselves enough to recognize the common purpose.” Xio Martin, 39, insists that establishing a unified purpose and demands for Occupy Philly isn’t all that important. “I think the act itself is the message,” she says. “When people notice someone doing something that’s not the normal behavior, then that’s far more effective in getting people to think than trying to ram phrases or ideology into them. It makes people wonder what other people’s problems might be, and maybe they sense some of that same unease within themselves, and then hopefully they’ll start looking at the facts for themselves.”

Peaches En Regalia Witness the birth of British pub theater in our fair city at the Red Room’s one-act comedy. Peaches En Regalia was named after a 1969 Frank Zappa tune—the playwright, Steve Lyons, loves the Mothers of Invention and wanted to write a play around the song. Along with the show, patrons will be served up a pint (or drink of choice) and a slice of pizza (from a pie) as part of a month-long “A Play, A Pint and A Pie” festival that showcases low-key, pub-style plays on nontheater weekdays: a happy-hour performance, if you will. Tonight’s feature has garnered oodles of awards and positive reviews, and will hopefully make you giggle so much that pint will go right up your nose. ADA KULESzA 6pm. $15.

Jens Lekman

During a nearly five-year break from recording after his 2007 breakthrough indie-pop gem Night Falls Over Kortedala, singer-songwriter Jens Lekman endured a bout with swine flu and also maybe did what most Swedes do—sit at the cafe having a fika and enjoying their economic stability and genetic superiority. Nahhh, we kid (kinda). Music is hard work, and Lekman has been working hard on his new EP, An Argument With Myself. Witty, sly and full of gorgeous, orchestral synth-folk-pop, it won’t do much to shake persistent comparisons to Belle & Sebastian and Morrissey. Which is perfectly OK. Embrace the twee!

The Falsetto’s Murder The Mafia are coming to Philly, Sopranos style. The Falsetto’s Murder is an interactive murder mystery show in a parody of the HBO mega hit. And this time, Tony and his entourage are in town for—what else?—a waste management convention. Guests can mingle with actors and engage in witty repartee before dinner, with the chance to discuss their findings over the meal. The actors begin the show after dinner, committing a murder in the midst of all the excitement. If you can solve the crime by the time the ballot slip comes ’round, you could win the mystery grand prize. Price of ticket includes dinner and the show—and perhaps your impending death by theater.

On the high heels of staging hilarious piratethemed burlesque aboard ships and turning holiday classics like the Nutcracker on its tights, the ever-innovative troupe is back with a full feature play starring Jess Conda as legendary bombshell Mae West. The show is a sendup of the 1927 spectacle of a trial where West, the daughter of a bare-knuckled prizefighter and a corset model, was charged with obscenity for writing and starring in the play Sex. Written and directed by Anna “Annie A-Bomb” Frangiosa, the jazzy cabaret will feature dancing boys in homage to West’s predilection for surrounding herself with muscle men both on and off stage. The play also features Jim Boyle of the Waitstaff Sketch Comedy, puppets and, of course, classic burlesque’s winning combo of razor-sharp wits and soft, soft skin. TARA MURTHA

The Besnard Lakes Chinatown Night Market

Montreal’s Besnard Lakes speak of a war. Are The Dark Horse (2007) was an odyssey into Radioland where a rock ’n’ roll band battled ultimate disaster: “You won’t hear this song on the radio/ The war’s being played out on our televisions,” they broadcasted on “Devastation,” bringing the war back to the airwaves. Lifting a guitar meant diffusing an enemy bomb, bending a string meant launching one. “You live in the city, city to city,” Jace Lasek sang about the heroes’ global mobilization to ignite the metropoles. Four years later: You Lived In The City reflects on the rock-wars from the woods, but there’s a rumbling ... It’s not over yet. Dark forces are conspiring and rock ’n’ roll must awake from its slumber. Once more unto the breach! ELLIOTT SHARP


our blocks of 10th Street stretching from the Friendship gates on Arch to Winter Street will be closed tonight and aglow with the Chinatown Night Market, which promises to unveil never-beforeseen food trucks and vendors selling grub they say you haven’t tasted yet this side of the International Date Line. Get ready to welcome a pizza truck, a gourmet grilled-cheese truck and other newbies to our blossoming food-truck scene.

LGBTQ Womyn of Color Conference Feeling that black and Latino LGBTQ women were being marginalized in society—making it more difficult not only to obtain resources and advocacy information but simply just to connect with one another for friendship and support—Elements Organization came together several years ago to hold bi-weekly meetings in West Philly for its 20 members. The group has come a long way since. This weekend, they’ll sponsor the third annual LGBTQ Womyn of Color Conference at Temple University’s student center, and hundreds of women are expected to attend. This year’s theme is “Fertile Ground: Womyn Revealed, Revived, Renewed”; there’ll be 21 different workshops pertaining to sexual practice, social justice, gender expression, wellness and more, plus film screenings, parties and brunches.

White Riot Back in 1977, British punk legends the Clash dropped their first single, “White Riot.” Observing how black youth battled police in the London streets the previous year, the song urged white youth to break the spell of passivity and unleash “a riot of [their] own.” They didn’t intend a racist message, though, but imagined a united front that transcended such divisions. However, the tune became a battle cry for the nationalist, xenophobic bands whose racist ideals are as much a part of the punk tradition as the more progressive

struggling to reconcile the promise of equality with the reality of sexism. While the Tailhook scandal and the Clarence Thomas hearings played out in the national media, a girl-powered, grassroots scene emerged. Its music was by turns feisty and fun and deserved a wider audience than it got, but even charismatic figures like Kathleen Hanna eschewed the spotlight. That’s because, as Marcus reminds us, the real stars were the countless women who made the posters, published the zines, and whose heartfelt conversations contributed significantly to third-wave feminism.

Tune Yards


t would be easy to dismiss the hugely hyped Merrill Garbus—AKA Tune Yards—as this year’s hipsteranointed avatar of kooky cool, if it weren’t for the fact that she’s a ludicrously talented, one-woman wrecking ball who just happens to have produced one of 2011’s hands-down best albums in the shape of Whokill. Almost impossible to categorize, she recalls the playful, uninhibited boundary pushing joy of early Björk (before she became batshit mental), exuding the saucer-eyed wonderment of an acid-deranged kindergarten music teacher. Live, she’s a revelation, a swooping, swooning, growling dervish who gleefully deconstructs the whole concept of the live gig.

James Blake The music biz will have to start slipping Ritalin into mp3s because, as everybody’s forgotten, the attention span of consumers is dwindling. When Brit electronicist James Blake’s debut LP leaked a few months before its official February release date, it catapulted into the running for album-of-the-year before the year had even started. With its clever, dubstep-haunted and deconstructed reconfiguring of R&B—a genre that desperately needed a new perspective—it deserved the praise. But nine months and one million Odd Future memes later, does anybody remember it? Absolutely! It’s wonderful! (That “attention span” thing was a strawman.) If not, this rightbefore-Holiday-shopping-season and yearend-list making tour’s a friendly reminder.

Two stages at opposite ends of the festival will showcase a variety of local talent from classical guitarists, dancers and magicians, to bands like the Dukes of Destiny and Zydeco-a-Go-Go.

The Rosebuds Like Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, Loud Planes Fly Low—the latest and very terrific album from North Carolina duo the Rosebuds—was born from the breakup of a marriage between bandmates who still want to keep the musical partnership alive. Married in 2001 (the same year the Rosebuds started), singer-guitarist Ivan Howard and singer-keyboardist Kelly Crisp, who had long mined their tensionfilled relationship for lyrical fodder to accompany their moody, stylish, synth-dappled indie-pop, divorced two years ago. The relentlessly melancholy and completely absorbing new album reflects that pain and offers no easy relief, but the emotional intensity that’s sure to inhabit the stage tonight should make for a particularly memorable gig.

Somewhere over the rainbow, there is an event that looks like Outfest. The creation of Philly Pride Presents, Outfest is determined to eliminate negativity about declarations of orientation for those in the LGBT community. While the entire country recognizes Oct. 11 as National Coming Out Day, Outfest annually highlights the best of our Gayborhood. This year boasts performances from the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, a heavily costumed appearance by Henri David, contests such as the penis-shaped bagel-eating competition, as well as streets lined with vendors and informational tents. While the main stage at 13th and Locust attracts much of the attention, and will host an appearance from M.Nutt hisself, there is plenty to do at every corner of this block party. So, put on your finest rainbow clothing. They’re getting dusty in the closet anyway. aShley kole Noon-6pm. Free. Gayborhood.



Big Big Love Hanne Blank is comfortable using the f-word. Fat, that is. Whether talking about burly bears or supersize BBWs, this author and educator sees no reason for fat people to be ashamed. She’s pretty comfortable with the other f-word, too, and that’s no coincidence. As Blank sees it, Americans are both fascinated and repelled by excess, hence our obsession with sex and weight. Far from being a scold, however, she firmly believes fatties deserve all the tender loving and passionate sex they can get, which is why she’s completely revised her guide to relationships for people of size—and their admirers. The latest edition includes Elizabeth Tamny’s sexy illustrations and a heaping helping of quotes from the more than 700 men and women who responded to an online survey conducted specifically for the

book. Throughout, Blank’s tone is positive, refreshing and compassionate. She acknowledges that fat people face plenty of challenges, which is why she’s so adamant that they get on top and go for it. R.S. 5:30pm. Free. Giovanni’s Room, 345 S. 12th St. 215.923.2960.

The quintet’s sense of atmosphere and haunted beauty suggests ex-shoegazers Mojave 3 if they traded their effects pedals for the banjo, fiddle, upright bass and cello. It’s a more evocative approach than their more retro-minded/fundamentalist peers, aptly wedding dream pop’s droning sustains, chamber pop delicacy and a folky Laurel Canyon vibe to their string band chassis.

Asylum: Inside the Closed World of State Mental Hospitals Mental hospitals have been portrayed in both literature and popular media as places of unrest, filth and cruelty. But in the early to mid-20th century, mental hospitals were sites of refuge and renewal for the mentally ill, and their sites were given great care by planners, architects and physicians. From 2002 to 2008, photographer Christopher Payne went across 30 states photographing 70 closed and subsequently forgotten mental institutions in an attempt to return some glory to these once glorified and cared-for monuments. Photographing various rooms of these self-sustaining communities (food and even clothing often produced on site), Payne captures the former spirit of hope and betterment that was once held within their walls. His photographs, spilling with light and exploding with soft, almost candylike colors, give a sense of what was and what could have been. DaRRen White Through Oct. 29.

Queers jump into the growing comedy scene. Nicole Finkbiner

P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY October 5 - 11, 2011

If you’ve been to any of the weekly open mic nights in the city, you know that sexist, racist and homophobic jokes are inevitable. There’s always going to be that one alpha male who mistakes narrowmindedness for humor. Or, as local stand-up comic Alejandro Morales puts it, “There’s a lot of douchebag comedy out there.” Having jumped into Philly’s burgeoning comedy scene in 2009, the New York native has already proven himself to be a rather proactive member. In addition to starting Camp Taboo, the monthly, queer-friendly comedy Alejandro Morales showcase, Morales, 30, recently performed for the third straight year in the Gayborhood Games’ comedy competition. “I’m like the Susan Lucci of that thing,” he laughs. Now Morales is busy helping put together Philly’s first ever QComedy Fest, along with local improv comedian Ralph Andracchio and the president/co-founder of, Bruce Yelk. In perfect timing with LGBT History Month, the week-long festival kicks of this Sunday, offering a different queer-friendly comedy show each night. Morales is organizing four shows, including Camp Taboo’s first anniversary event and a special edition of the weekly drag show, Sinful Sundays, hosted by the Notorious OMG, the resident emcee for Philly’s award-winning queer drag and burlesque performance troupe, Liberty City Kings. “It’s not called the Gay Comedy Festival because I wanted to stay away from it just being gay,” Morales explains, adding that they’ve invited a sprinkling of their straight comedy allies to perform. Besides the campy entertainment one might normally expect, there will also be nights devoted to comedic storytelling, sketch and improv. “Having a gay audience come see gay people improvise, I think it would be it easier for them to relate and get into it,” says Andracchio, who currently performs as part of Philly Improv Theater house team, King Friday, the improvised telenovela, Des Pasiones and one-half of the improv duo Grimmatchio. Both Andracchio and Morales stress that the festival isn’t about getting their fair share of the comedy pie, but more like giving people a chance to try key lime instead of apple. “The comedy scene is exploding, but it can’t grow without an audience,” Morales says. “So what I’m trying to do is find the audience for this kind of comedy—the kind of audience that’s been put off by the stuff that flies at other places.” Often performing for predominantly straight audiences, Morales knows that this polarizing effect actually goes both ways. “Sometimes I’m just being honest about dating or what have you and I can feel people getting uptight.” Cracking jokes in drag as “Shenanigans Hannigan,” on the other hand, is a totally different story. “I think that if you’re really big with your homosexuality, it puts people in a certain kind of ease because they can say, ‘Well, this is other. I can laugh at this because it’s other.’” As for straight folks who aren’t comfortable with “other,” well, that’s on them. “If you’re a straight person who’s freaked out by being in a room with a bunch of gay people talking about gay stuff then obviously, this might not be your cup of tea,” says actor, writer, comedian and QComedy Fest headliner, Alec Mapa. “But then again, it might be just the thing you need to do to, as my therapist would say, ‘grow as a person.’ Because that’s exactly what my big gay evening of dick jokes is—a growth opportunity.” n

Step By Step

Two local activists organize Philly’s first Trans March. By Raymond Simon Just being out in public, openly and unashamedly, takes guts when you belong to a community that is misunderstood, overlooked or met with outright prejudice. But on Oct. 8, the day before Outfest, two local activists are putting together an event that will bring together transgender people and gender nonconformists of all stripes to create visibility and awareness for social equality. The Philly Trans March is the brainchild of Jess Kalup, a graphic designer and social-justice activist, and Christian Axavier Lovehall, a transgender man, organizer and hip-hop artist. They’ve put together the march to protest the hate, social injustice and inequality faced by the transgender community. Kalup got involved in the transgender scene a few summers ago after befriending a number of transidentified people whom she met while participating in a Soulforce Equality Ride, which brings LGBT people and their allies to conservative Christian colleges. Kalup met Lovehall after his performance at an event sponsored by Original Plumbing, a lifestyle magazine devoted to female-to-male trans guys, and they kept running into one another at various LGBT get-togethers. It was participating in all these meetings and rallies that got Lovehall to thinking. “There have been a lot of marches in the city that I attended,” he says. “Considering all the issues the trans community is facing, I felt we needed a movement of our own.” So when Lovehall was ready to make his idea a reality, the first person he contacted was Kalup. “I felt an overwhelming certainty that the march needed to

happen and was confident I had to help make it happen,” Kalup says. In short order, they planned the route, secured the proper permits and booked a variety of performers, ranging from drag artist Dynasty Escada Ross to singer-songwriter Susan Collins. The march begins with a brief rally at Love Park, then winds its way around City Hall and through the Gayborhood. After the march and performances end, participants can head over to the William Way Community Center for a meet-and-greet designed as an opportunity for younger LGBT folks to mix and mingle with the organizers and performers. The festivities conclude with a booty-shaking after-party at Sisters. The dynamic pair has organized the event through a Facebook page and website and has recruited an enthusiastic committee of organizers and allies, including Joe Ippolito of the Gender Reel film festival and the sassy sex-education collective, ScrewSmart. Kalup isn’t at all surprised by the positive response they’ve received so far. She feels the local trans community is growing and is also creating its own institutions, like the Philadelphia Trans-Health Conference, which held its 10th annual meeting in June, and the Gender Reel film festival, which screened two days’ worth of film and video work by transartists this past August. Of course, life isn’t uniformly positive for Philadelphia’s transgender community. Lovehall is quick to point out the many challenges his peers still face, such as job discrimination and the daily hassle of dealing with the absurdity of SEPTA’s gender stickers. But facing up to those dispiriting rebuffs is an important motivation for the march. “I’d rather it got better now than worse later,” Lovehall says. “Suicide, hate crimes, violence, going to all these memorials for trans women—what’s a better time than now?” n Philly Trans March: Sat., Oct. 8, 3pm.

Alejandro “Alec” Mapa skyrocketed to fame in recent years with roles on Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives, but he’s not new to the Hollywood hustle. Mapa has worked as a stand-up comic and actor since 1987. If you’re not familiar with his comedy style, search for “Alec Mapa Roasts George Takei” on YouTube and try not to wet your pants. He’s outrageous without being offensive, and insightful without being preachy (paging Margaret Cho). And he’s not just out, he’s unapologetic and uncompromising—proving that gay entertainers can be funny, successful and impactful. Mapa works on myriad LGBT-rights issues, including workplace discrimination, bullying, hate crimes and gay marriage. This month, Mapa heads to Philly to headline QComedy Fest.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or (insert gasp) you aren’t on Facebook, you know that Sunday is Philadelphia’s Outfest. During the festivities, one of Philadelphia’s most iconic institutions, Giovanni’s Room, will be unveiling a new historic marker. Giovanni’s Room is the nation’s longest continually operating LGBT bookstore. Mayor Nutter and representatives of the Philadelphia Gay Tourism Caucus, the Office of LGBT Affairs and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission will preside over the dedication. This will be Philly’s second historic plaque related to the LGBT community, joining the marker on Independence Mall at the site of our country’s first gay-rights protest—nearly a decade before the Stonewall Riots. Giovanni’s Room has provided a safe venue for LGBT authors, advocates and allies to tell their stories since 1968. Decades before Lady Gaga and the “It Gets Better” campaign, espousing a pro-gay position, or including an openly gay character in a fictional story, could damage a person’s reputation or worse. Stop by the dedication ceremony and show your appreciation. Sun, Oct. 9, 2pm. Giovanni’s Room, 345 S. 12th St.

The Dharling Sisters’ “Spooktacular, Spooktacular” If you’re not familiar with drag culture, it might seem odd when multiple performers in the same city share a last name. This phenomenon isn’t for lack of creativity— it’s because new performers often get into drag with the support of an existing queen. Sometimes, two drag queens that come up together opt to share the same last name, developing similar brands, styles and often performing together. The Dharling Sisters—Brenda and Diana—are coming together to present “Spooktacular, Spooktacular,” a Halloween one-night-only engagement, and every number is tightly choreographed and blocked. The Dharling Sisters have performed together on Fire Island for the last several summers, specializing in Broadway-inspired showstoppers with precise choreography. Brenda’s alter ego Brandon was a member of Philadanco for years, and Diana was the lead choreographer for Philly’s own Dragapalooza: Broadway Divas. The cast features several up-and-coming drag starlets including Kendra Sparks, the “Pop Princess”; Katrina Storms, the “Dance Diva”; and Tammy Faymous, the “Broadway Belter.” Sun., Oct. 30, 10pm.

Not Quite Hog Heaven The Blind Pig needs to do more to break the curse. By Brian Freedman Rya n St R a n d

anywhere, really—are built on the meat itself. Treat that flesh right, and no matter how much or how little you surround it with, it’ll taste just fine. These, however, were just bland, the regular one on the menu screaming out for more flavor, the special “farmer’s burger” a bit more interesting for its applewood-smoked bacon, cheddar and egg on top, but not by much. An oyster sandwich succumbed to a similar fate. Like the Thanksgiving balls, the crust was perfect, and each oyster a self-contained, briny jewel of sea love. But the context left me cold: Toast, lettuce and tomato are all these ever really need to be accompanied by, but without enough of that creole mustard, or more acid of any sort, it was bound to bore after a few bites. Poutine came a lot closer to hitting its notes. The best versions of this totemic late-night drunk food tend to be defined by their reckless sense of lustiness. Well-assembled poutine is the early career Britney Spears of the junk-food world: You feel kind of dirty for thinking about it as much as you do, but you’re powerless to stop yourself once you give in to its easy, saucy allure. And if this one wasn’t a revelation, it was nonetheless a more-than-enjoyable dish, not to mention a deeply personal one: The curds, appropriately squeaky against the teeth, are produced by the chef’s daughter’s godfather in Amityville. Heart-stopping food is rarely this heart-warming. Less-pubby dishes were a hit-or-miss proposition. A generous mound of arugula salad with apples and bacon brought the brightness with pickled onions and a smart, lager-stiffened lemon vinaigrette. A smoked beer tomato broth could have used more acid, but was provided a nice tub within which well-steamed mussels could luxuriate. But

Poutine: The early career Britney Spears of the junk-food world.

They’re a ballsy move, those Thanksgiving orbs at the Blind Pig. For most of us, the pleasures of Turkey Day gluttony are quickly forgotten in a next-day fog of tryptophan and heartburn, and you tend to need a year to recover. T-Day balls here, however, provide a unique opportunity to practice for the big day a few months early. Unfortunately, they just miss their target: Anchored by glutinous potatoes snuggling up alongside bits of turkey, all of it wrapped in stuffing and fried panko, the lightest part of these two spheres was ironically that golden crust, a perfectly turnedout cocoon that shattered at tooth’s edge. Much of the food at Blind Pig falls within this bracket of the continuum—decent to good, but not quite reaching its potential. Burgers will leave you wanting. We’re just now coming out of the fog of an era of pimped-out patties that, at their heart, were nothing, really, without their fancy toppings and accompaniments: Think Bishop Don Magic Juan without the chalice and bling. The best ones in the city now—or

a painfully salty soy-ginger sauce rendered otherwise wellturned-out salmon nearly inedible. Fortunately, there’s plenty of good beer to hydrate with— the draught- and can-only lists provide plenty of options no matter what you’re in the mood for. The wine list, however— which we’re told will be expanded—seems like an after thought next to the selection of suds. It’s time we all accept that solid selections of beer and wine are not mutually exclusive, regardless of what the snobs and militants on both sides of this false divide would have you believe. Good drinking is good drinking, whether it’s grape- or grainbased. After the critically praised Sovalo moved out of this space, Kong set up shop and was gone in a blink. And while the raw-scrubbed concrete walls and comfy-industrial ambiance of that restaurant remain in its newest incarnation, too much of the food right now just doesn’t seem to have enough heart behind it. Really, it comes down to a matter of incentive: With Standard Tap and North 3rd so close by, Blind Pig will have to find a groove of its own to break the curse of this space. It may well do so, but it’s got a ways to go. n

LECTURES Sherwin-Williams Colormix 2012 Marketplace Design Center, 2400 Market Street October 13, 2011

Welcome to DesignPhiladelphia! Hundreds of Designers. Thousands of Inspirations. DesignPhiladelphia, in partnership with the University of the Arts, unites the region’s dynamic creative community by bringing together individuals and organizations from across the design spectrum. In doing this, we place a spotlight on Philadelphia’s rich design history and creative industries at work. Now in its 7th year, DesignPhiladelphia (DP) emerged in 2005 to make the case that innovation and design is central to a city’s economic, social and educational growth. Now one of the largest design events in the nation, the city-wide celebration features 11 days of non-stop programming championing design, showcasing the work of over 450 designers and creative thinkers in more than 150 public events from October 13-23, 2011. Events include a diverse mix of exhibitions, lectures and public forums, runway shows, book signings, parties, workshops and open studios. DP is a chance to check out the processes, materials and ideas behind what it takes to build an office tower, assemble a website, publish a newspaper, craft a car, design a cereal box. Working across design disciplines, from architecture and urban planning to industrial, fashion, multimedia, graphic, product and interior design celebrates the creative community and encourages conversations. Set in boutiques, galleries, museums, universities, warehouses, public spaces and city streets, DesignPhiladelphia transforms the city into a stage for ideas and designs of the present and future, highlighting the impact design plays in our everyday lives. This year we’re topping all our previous celebrations, with more designers, more events, and more opportunities for you to see, talk, network, exchange, and ultimately experience design. Enjoy! Hilary Jay, Founding Director

Traumatic Encounter Forever! at Vox Populi Outfitted with a new space for performance art called “AUX” (a claim to fame in a world where performance artists still struggle to find venues), Vox is wellequipped to become our arbiter of the best in art that gets off the wall. Kikuko Tanaka’s Traumatic Encounter Forever! is part of a series that takes Bambi as its theme and revolves around the literal enactment of psychoanalytic tropes such as castration, the individuation of the subject and the infantile preoccupation with bodily fluids. It’s complex stuff, but Tanaka’s plunge into the abject is always countered with a sense of humor (even if sometimes it’s an inside joke). While her cast of characters sheds little light on the ensuing scenario, it certainly lends itself to wild speculation. The roll-call includes: a Wounded Artist, an Angel, a Tragic Photographer, Creature, a Charitable Rabbit and a Cook. Does the Cook cook the rabbit and if so, does the rabbit remain charitable? Is the artist wounded while trying to rescue the rabbit and the photographer tragic because he fails to capture the commotion on film? Probably not, but if you’d like to see what actually happens, then gird yourself against squeamishness and settle in for the self described “tragicomic epic.” Opening reception, 6–11pm. Through Oct. 30. Vox Populi Gallery, 319 N. 11th St., Third Floor.

USE, PURPOSE at Grizzly Grizzly

for exclusive contests, events & promotions

For something completely different, venture to Grizzly Grizzly for an elegantly sparse show. In conjunction with DesignPhiladelphia (Oct. 13-23), Brooklyn, N.Y.-based designer Patrick Gavin’s USE, PURPOSE ruminates on the tension between designed spaces and the objects within them. Designed by Gavin and built from anodized aluminum and maple wood, the gallery will host two room dividers, a table and a floor sculpture. Here, industrial production butts heads with the rarified art object, suggesting both confluence of form and friction of utility. Nudged by the title of the show, Gavin asks us to interrogate our use of objects against their intended purpose, which brings up basic questions about the way we live in both urban and domestic spaces. (For further reading on this subject, note the blog, That’s Not a Trash Can!) Opening reception 6-10pm. Through Oct. 29. Grizzly Grizzly, 319 N. 11th St., Second Floor.

For those who like their performances emotional, hilarious and riddled with personal histories, look no further than Extra Extra’s two-part showcase of what they’re terming “an evening of cathartic performance.” A new collaboration between New York-based visual artist Heather Bregman and dancer Katie Dean, Experimental Massage is choreographed around a video that dictates the dancers’ responses. Equally attuned to audience reactions of discomfort or embarrassment, Bregman and Dean aim to grope their way through the murk of self-examination toward a symbolic rebirth via movement. Local performance artist Jake Dibeler also makes a public display of affliction with Girlfriend, but uses his unique brand of disarming, semi-tragic humor to sweep us along for the ride. If you grew up as a teenager in the ’90s, then Dibeler’s often X-rated but always playful dramatization of adolescent identity may strike a chord. Like a fullthroated rendition of your favorite pop song in a sleezy bar, Dibeler’s performances may have the veneer of naive optimism but they twang with the dissonance of an emotional breakdown. 7pm. Extra Extra, 1524 Frankford Ave. 301.412.7547.

Six Pack

Six Films Literally Made Possible By Other Films By Matt Prigge

Return of the Living Dead (1985): “Did you see that movie Night of the Living Dead?” So begins Dan O’Bannon’s classic, which beat Shaun of the Dead by two decades in re-envisioning George A. Romero’s zombie opuses as dark (or darker) comedy. Turns out zombies are real, but the gas that causes them has been not-so-safely locked up in a Louisville, Ky., medical supply warehouse. When clumsy employees let it loose, endlessly inventive havoc results. Lightning Over Braddock: A Rustbowl Fantasy (1988): Documentarian Tony Buba could

have been Michael Moore if he weren’t actually funny and insightful. While covering, humorously, the decline of his Western Pennsylvania hometown following the closing of its integral steel factory, Buba jokily traces the wholly fictitious rise of one of its residents, Sal Carollo. The subject of Buba’s acclaimed 1979 doc Sweet Sal, Carollo uses the film’s popularity to become a 72-year-old Hollywood prima donna—a running gag that comments on the dim afterlife of popular doc subjects. (In real life, Carollo had a short Hollywood stint, appearing in Romero’s Knightriders, Moscow on the Hudson and an episode of Miami Vice.)

Life and Nothing More ... (1991): Concerned that the stars of his 1987 film Where is the Friend’s House? perished in an earthquake, Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami (late of Certified Copy) decided to fictionalize his quest, turning it into another of his meditations on the cruelties and joys of existence. New Nightmare (1994): The post-modernism

Adaptation (2001): Without Being John Malkovich, Charlie Kaufman never would have done his own 8 ½. The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) (2011): Is Martin—the porcine copycat who,

By Sean Burns wasn’t at fault. (Margaret never quite gets around to explaining how, on a mobbed Manhattan street, not a single other eyewitness noticed that a bus full of people barreled through a red light.) The rest of the film is Lisa trying to get back to normal, whatever that is, while wrestling with her shame, complicity and a sudden realization that the world is a much crueler and more random place than she’d previously imagined. As verbally articulate as she is emotionally immature, Lisa drops constant literary quotes, claiming that she doesn’t want to turn somebody else’s tragedy into “her moral gymnasium.” Except that she does, because Lisa is a teenage girl, and teenage girls feel things more intensely than anybody else on the planet. It’s hard enough being that age without also having to figure out how to process your role in somebody’s grisly demise. Can you really just go back to doing geometry homework after something like that? When Ruffalo appears insufficiently remorseful, Lisa Walking nightmare: Lisa Cohen (Anna Paquin) struggles with the goes on a crusade to get him fired.

Much like Axl Rose’s eternally delayed magnum opus, But what made You Can Count On Me so remarkable was Margaret’s eventual unveiling turns out to be a jumbled the lightness of Lonergan’s touch, and his sly observations anti-climax. A grief-stricken portrait of post-9/11 New York City, it’s a curious time capsule—and not just because of how of natural human behavior. Margaret (by the way, none of the characters are named Margaret) has a few lovely grace young all these actors look. If nothing else, the movie serves notes tucked away inside its scenes, but is for the most part as a snapshot of a very specific era on the verge of receding grinding and emotionally overdetermined.

World Cafe Turns 20

Biggest Diva: Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star When you hear the term diva, you might think of soulful ladies of R&B, bedazzled country vixens or the babyprostitutes of pop. According to Dye, it was indie-darling Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star who was such a prima donna that the show never aired. After extending her studio session to three hours and generally giving everyone a hard time, Dye did the interview. “She started answering questions,” Dye gives a dramatic pause, “by nodding her head. That doesn’t really work on the radio.” They ended the interview and it remains in the World Cafe Vault of Dead Air. Diva Runner-Up: NRBQ, who would only do the interview laying on the floor, flat on their backs.

Philly radio icon David Dye reflects on the show’s best and most surprising moments. By Cristina Perachio m i c h a e l T. R eg a n

Most Down-to-Earth Star: Neil Young Yes, Dye still gets star struck. When World Cafe brings in the big guns like Neil Young, he ends up doing more work so he’s not so nervous. But sometimes, it’s the musicians who end up putting Dye at ease. It was during a trip Dye took to Nashville, Tenn., for an interview with Young that makes for one of his favorite moments. “It was one of his last interviews (promoting Prairie Wind ) and we did it in the room at the hotel,” says Dye. “The people in the hallway were being kinda loud and he got up and opened the door and said, ‘Will you guys shut up!’ To have Neil do that was kinda cool.”

Dye’s Most Disappointing Moment: Joni Mitchell Dye says that, at first, Mitchell was happy to be talking about music and not personal matters. When Dye asked about “Not to Blame,” Mitchell’s tune changed. “It was about Jackson Browne when he was being accused of spousal abuse,” says Dye. “I was really disappointed that she denied it. She had the guts to write it in a song but wouldn’t own up to it.” Dye maintains that there is very little room for interpretation with “Not to Blame,” written two years after the incident between Jackson Browne and Darryl Hannah.

David Dye is a Philadelphia radio icon who, since October 1991, has let us into the minds of established stars and upand-comers alike—David Bowie, Robbie Robertson, Joni Mitchell, Amos Lee and Mumford & Sons. The sigh of relief that Dye and his crew breathed after booking U2 in that first year on-air has led to two decades of memorable moments in music. “The show has changed, has morphed somewhat,” says Dye. “It was very much more of a singer-song [writer] show in the beginning.” What started as a program showcasing up-and-comers and world music grew into the leader in new and significant artists, giving both celebrated and emerging musicians a platform for musical exploration and a chance to share an intimacy with listeners never before heard. We caught up with Dye and asked him about his 20 year reign as host of World Cafe: the good, the bad and the completely bizarre. Whether you’re a longtime listener or a first-timer, read on for Dye’s list of unforgettable guests. Performance Most Likely to Surprise You: Jeff Daniels There’s nothing worse than an egomaniacal celebrity who tries to be an actor/model/singer-songwriter/handbag designer. But the Dumb and Dumber star, who Dye was not looking forward to having on the show, gets the host’s pick as the guest whose performance most altered his preconceptions. “He clearly had been doing this all his life. Rather than kind of thinking this was going to be an ego boost for him he actually even started doing music for all the right reasons: To fund a theater he started doing benefit concerts.”

Musician Dye Felt Like He’d Known Forever: Rosanne Cash Cash was on the show promoting her album Black Cadillac in 2006. Though it was the first time Dye and Cash had met, Dye says he felt like he’d known the musician for years. “I had that experience with Roseann Cash. We just really clicked ... I felt like we had some of the same experiences. She may have had a lot that I hadn’t,” laughs Dye. “It was just super warm and I felt that.” Most Honest Interview: Tom Waits “His brain is just wired differently and he’s also incredibly smart.” Dye says that after every interview, there is something he regrets not asking or something he wishes he pressed further. Waits is so forthcoming during his interviews with Dye that he doesn’t have to dig too far. “One of the questions I wanted to ask him was—there was a real shift in his career: he did almost straight singer-songwriter stuff early on and then he sort of went to the circus.” Waits straight answer: You kind of get bored with yourself. Most Uncomfortable Interview: Jewel When Jewel made her way to World Cafe, Dye was ... unenthused. Jewel is a prime example of what can go wrong when feigning interest in an artist. “I didn’t get along very well with Jewel. I phrased something poorly and she took offense. And got really quite unhappy about it.” Dye, in an attempt to address Jewel’s laid-back persona, made mention of her not being “ambitious.” Her comeback: “Well, you don’t seem very well groomed.” Dye has a good sense of humor about the incident. “She was accurate too, so at least she was observant. I don’t dress well.” n World Cafe airs weekdays on WXPN 88.5 at 2 p.m. Visit for a list of scheduled performances taking place this month to celebrate its 20th year on air.

The 27-year-old’s made a compelling case for W himself with a handful of thumping mixtapes and his Attention Deficit (2009) debut, which featured guest spots by Lady Gaga, Bun B and Pharrell. Signing with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group in early 2011, he’s positioned to blow up. The Eleven One Theory tape—released in August to commemorate his one millionth Twitter follower—finds him maintaining the wild, D.C. go-go percussion sound that’s provided his production a drop on more predictable competition. His focus slips between club-suave and the eternal paper chase, but his sense of humor continuously shines, like on his Seinfeld-inspired Mixtape About Nothing (2008) or when, in the midst of a candlelit slow jam on Eleven One, he randomly shouts out “white boy” Mac Miller, the Pittsburg rapper. Ambition, his Maybach debut, drops Nov. 1 and promises appearances by Philly boys Meek Mill and Diplo. (Elliott Sharp) Mon., Oct. 10, 8:30pm. $29. Theatre of Living Arts, 334 South St. 215.922.1011.

By Dan Savage

I am an 18-year-old straight male. I have a hodgepodge of birth defects that affect my genitalia: severe hypospadias (my urethra—my piss slit—is at the base of my penis), micropenis (less than two inches), and anorchia (I was born without testes). I have never been naked around anyone else. I don’t really like being naked by myself, to be honest. Lately, my sex drive has skyrocketed. It is driving me up the wall. Couple this with the fact that women see me as attractive, and I’m not doing well. It’s frustrating that sexual situations are presenting themselves to me and there’s nothing I can do. I’ve recently started college, and it’s endlessly frustrating to see my friends having relationships and being sexually active. I know that casual sex/flings will never be an option for me, but I am dying over here! Messed Up Junk

Your living situation sounds like a setup for a great porn parody, RAM. (When a Stranger Comes : “The ass-stretching amateur porn is coming from inside the apartment !”) It also sounds like an opportunity. If you’re into this guy—and, having watched his videos (thanks for the link), it looks like you could literally walk right into this guy—why not seize that great, big, gaping opening created by your little discovery? The next time your roommate makes a homophobic remark, RAM, tell him you’re gay, tell him you don’t appreciate his comments, and tell him you’re somewhat mystified by his remarks in light of his body of work. Then roll the tape. There’s a chance—a slim chance—that he’s not gay and just enjoys anal play, sexual transgression and the attention he gets from men online. Here’s hoping you wind up fucking some sense into your roommate and an apology out of him. n

I moved in with a friend of a friend when I was desperate to find housing in a new city. The guy I live with would be an ideal roommate except he sometimes makes homophobic comments. I never told him I’m gay—I didn’t feel the need up front and now I don’t feel comfortable—but homophobia is not the reason I am writing you. The situation goes deeper. In the midst of my online exploits, I found an Xtube channel for a guy who is most certainly my roommate. He wears a mask in the videos, but the voice and build are the same, same tattoos, and his bedroom is unmistakable. In the videos, he fucks himself silly with massive dildos—MASSIVE—while begging for cock. Part of me wants to pull one of the videos up the next time he makes a comment. Part of me loves the idea of giving this homophobe a good fucking. What would you do? Roommate’s Anal Movies

I’m a 26-year-old girl from Austria currently seeing a guy who likes to tie me up and gag me. It is just cuffs and ball gags so far, and I am enjoying it! Recently he sent this text message: “mummification sounds fun.” In his case, “sounds fun” means “I wish to try it.” I looked it up online. Holy! I was scared after watching this video of a guy wrapping a woman first in cling

“BIAS should know that it was absolutely OK for her to say, ‘Not gonna happen,’” says Tynan Fox, kinkster, activist and blogger ( Fox, just 27, has been into mummification for more than a decade—he’s been on both sides of the duct tape—but says he can appreciate why even some bondage fans aren’t into it. “Many people are claustrophobic,” says Fox, “and they can’t stomach the idea of being wrapped up, and who can blame them? Mummification is extreme play. But her boyfriend is being completely appropriate—she said she wasn’t interested, he hasn’t mentioned it again—and they should both be commended for their open and honest communication.” The only way to get over your feelings of terror, if you want to explore this, is to try it while taking things very, very slowly. “She doesn’t have to go directly to the full-out body-and-head-covering Saran Wrap/duct tape combo,” says Fox. “Pace yourselves! Begin with Saran Wrap only, just from the shoulders to the ankles. If she freaks, the boyfriend cuts her loose and it’s over. If the scene goes well, they can add a little more next time. Eventually, she may find the restriction and sensory deprivation provides a heightened sense of sexual awareness and makes her extremely horny.”

“His story is one that is very familiar to us,” says Tiger Howard Devore, vice president of the Hypospadias and Epispadias Association (HEA). “He should know that he is not rare and many with his kind of genital difference have learned how to communicate about their difference to potential intimate partners.” You’re right, MUJ: Casual sex/flings—shucking off your clothes and jumping into bed with a girl you’ve just met—may never be an option for you. But you know what? Drunken college hookups last an hour or two, while the communication skills you’re going to have to develop to navigate your sex life will last a lifetime. You will have a sex life, MUJ, and there is a lot you can do. There are women out there who prefer tongues, toys, and touch to vaginal penetration. On the Savage Lovecast, I took a call from a woman who was worried she would never find a partner because, although she enjoys other kinds of sex, she’s physically incapable of vaginal intercourse; there’s a new dating website for straight men and women “who cannot engage in sexual intercourse” (; and if you fall in love with a woman who enjoys vaginal intercourse, sex shops sell strap-on dildos to men, too. In short, MUJ, you have options. You also have role models. “One of the most validating and reassuring experiences someone with genital difference can have,” says Devore, “is to meet with others who share their birth history and have dealt with the same issues of self-acceptance, shame and isolation, and the challenge of intimate relationships.” HEA hosts an annual conference and it’s coming up, MUJ. If you can get your ass to Chicago over the weekend of October 21–23, I strongly encourage you to attend HEA 2011. “Connecting with others who share his difference is the best way to end his isolation and begin his healing,” says Devore. “At the conference, he’ll get expert information from doctors and psychologists, and he’ll meet men who have grown up just like him and have faced the same fears and overcome them.” HEA offers financial aid to men who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend—an experience that is life changing and, in some cases, life saving—and I’ve made a donation so more men with hypospadias can attend this year. I’m encouraging my readers to do the same:

film and then in duct tape! Face and everything! It seemed like out of a horror movie! I texted him back: “I realize this could be a lot of fun for you, but I don’t think I can do that.” He’s never mentioned it again. I feel awful for denying him. I tell myself it’s about trusting the other person—yes, we have safe words!—but I just can’t shake off the feeling of creepiness! Is there anything I can do to get over being terrified?
