I am thoroughly disappointed and disgusted with the cover this week. I am a transgender person. In my opinion, people are way too wound up about something that’s perfectly natural—a variety of different gender presentations, identities, expressions, bodies. That being said, it’s very important for many transgender people to be referred to and treated as the gender that they feel they are. The cover photo of the magazine is clearly targeted to get people’s attention, and not in a positive way. Trans people don’t need any

AIDEN P, Portland, Ore. I appreciate this article and its information. The art/photo on the cover of the newspaper associated with this article works against your otherwise relatively respectful tone. Is that supposed to be funny, mocking, or sexualizing? Seems like it’s all 3. Try again, please.

Hard to Tell Who’s the Boss in Teach Four Philly teachers watch Tony Danza’s new show and tell PW what’s real and what’s just reality TV. By Emily Guendelsberger

emilyg@philadelphiaweekly.com

*A Persistently Dangerous high school is one that has more than 20 “dangerous incidents” per year. Those include “both weapons possession incidents resulting in arrest (guns, knives, or other weapons) and violent incidents resulting in arrest (homicide, kidnapping, robbery, sexual offenses, and aggravated assaults).” Northeast, where Danza taught, is also regularly on this list.

October 6-12, 2010

much, the teachers say, because he never has to deal with many of the institutional problems they do. One of the big issues, the teachers say, is dealing with the administration. “I think I met [my principal], like, twice last year,” says Amanda, who teaches 11th-grade English at a large, high-poverty West Philly high school that’s also regularly on the district’s Persistently Dangerous Schools list.* Danza met with Northeast Principal Linda Carroll for a few one-on-one chats in his first week alone. “If this doesn’t work … you’re out,” Carroll says. “With that said, I want to welcome you, and let you know that we’ll give you everything you need to get the job done.” That’s probably not entirely true considering many district teachers pay for school supplies themselves, a fact not mentioned in the first episode. Amanda rattles off a list of things she supplied herself last year: “A projector, paper, pencils for the kids to write with, notebooks, books, access to computers—I purchased two netbooks last year, one of them got stolen.” Beth, who teaches 10th-grade English at the same school as Amanda, and Cassidy want disciplinary support. “There are no school-wide consequences for a kid showing up to my class 10 minutes late every single day and not doing a damn thing— there’s nowhere to send her during school time,” Beth says. For nonviolent offenses, at many underprivileged schools it often falls on the teacher to hold detention and call parents. Cassidy adds that almost anything, short of violence, could happen to her without punishment from above. “They can curse you out, they can call you a bitch, they can walk out, then the other kids start to see that there’s no consequences.” Which the teachers say is another big problem: the rampant institutionalized indifference—an earbuds-in atmosphere of openly not giving a shit. If that’s true, it’s certainly not reflected in the show, where the students in Danza’s class self-selected as more motivated, as they had to apply to get in. Most students, the teachers say, wouldn’t have let him get a word in edgewise. The worst student behavior in the first

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

“One out of two doesn’t make it!” says Tony Danza during the opening montage of the new A&E reality show Teach: Tony Danza, referring to the statistic that about half of Philadelphia public-school students don’t graduate. “Crazy!” He wanted to make a difference, Danza informs us in voiceover, and so, armed with optimism, memories of education classes from 40 years ago and a film crew, he moved to the City of Brotherly Love and started as a 10th-grade English teacher at Northeast, Philly’s largest high school. But the Philadelphia School District is even worse at holding on to new teachers like Danza than it is its students. A recent study showed that 48 percent of new teachers left within three years—slightly more than the 47 percent of students who drop out before graduation. There have been many studies done to pin down the specific reasons, but ask pretty much any new teacher why they think the turnover rate is so high—they’ll make it very clear: Learning the ropes in the Philadelphia School District is miserable. PW sat down to watch the show with four second-year Philadelphia publicschool teachers who went through their trial-by-fire first year at the same time as Danza to see how accurately they thought the show depicted their experience. “You’ve got to be fucking kidding me,” groans Diego—a 10th-grade history teacher at a magnet school—as Danza tears up for the first time around the three-minute mark. Danza sniffles something about biting off more than he could chew, the teachers scoff, but upon further discussion, they empathize—crying is part of the job. “But never, ever in front of the students,” says Cassidy, who teaches ninth-grade English at a large, high-poverty North Philadelphia high school, also regularly on the Persistently Dangerous list. The rest emphatically agree. “Then that’s all they can talk about for the rest of the year. And you’re done,” she says. The teachers casually swap horrific anecdotes of student misbehavior: threats and violence, regularly being cursed at, finding an “I GOT A BLOODY PUZZY” sign taped to another teacher’s back. But they say their breakdowns are associated more with the system than with the students. Danza’s on-camera sniffling is a bit

episode could be described as “slightly rude.” One girl asks if Danza’s nervous, pointing out the sweat stains on his shirt. He stammers, and she helpfully suggests “I don’t want to embarrass you or anything, but, like, maybe you should, like, wear more undershirts or something.” Amanda, saying that exchange rings true but would have been meaner in real life, recalls a response she got earlier that day after asking a student multiple times to take out her earbuds and take a test: “‘FUCK YOU, YOU’RE SO FUCKIN’ WEIRD, DON’T TALK TO ME!’” The teachers agree that a lot of their students swear constantly—the words pussy, bitch, fuck and faggot are “like prepositions,” Amanda says—but you won’t get proof of that in the show. And the screening process is even more obvious when the teachers point to a consipcuous lack of pregnancy at Northeast. The three nonmagnet teachers estimate that one out of five girls in their schools is pregnant or has a child, and statistics from the Pennsylvania Department of Health back them up. Even Danza’s workload vastly differed; he taught only one double-length class of 26 students, when most teachers have five periods and about 150 different students. Yet despite his cushier circumstances, the group is willing to let Danza off the hook for making a ridiculous show about their serious and stressful job. Why? Danza seems like he genuinely, desperately wants to do right by his students, and feels like a failure when he can’t. And with a job that’s both vitally important and almost impossible, so do they. “I’m going to really try my hardest, I want to do it well,” says a slightly teary Danza near the end of the episode, and this time elicits an “Aww!” from the group. “We all do, sir!” chirps Cassidy. A year after filming, Danza is back at his home in Beverly Hills, already among the 48 percent of new teachers who don’t make it to three years. Amanda, Beth, Cassidy and Diego, though, are still here. “Part of me is like, ‘Why am I ruining my life for something that I’m not making any progress in?’” Cassidy says. “Then I ask myself, ‘If I quit today, who’s going to replace me tomorrow?’” n

Marcellus Shale: To Drill or Not to Drill? Your health for Shale.

W W W. P H I L A D E L P H I A W E E K LY. C O M

News & Opinion

By Nick Powell feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

Curtis Jones, Jr. has a certain way with words. “Sometimes we are the boils on the butt of progress,” the councilman said, speaking about government regulators at a forum on Marcellus Shale drilling last spring. Jones is leading a City Council effort to delay exploitation of gas resources in Pennsylvania until further study can be done on potential consequences, particularly within the Delaware watershed that provides Philadelphia with its drinking water. The imagery of shale drilling is unfortunate: forcing a pipe deep into subterranean rock layers and emitting large quantities of salty liquid to break up the shale and release the gas trapped inside. But this is no rape of our environment; rather, it’s a con sensual act of love between man and Earth, producing offspring in the form of a

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

October 6-12, 2010

viable, relatively clean fuel source that we so desperately need. At last spring’s forum, held at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Penn State Professor Terry Engelder outlined what he saw as the five biggest challenges facing the United States: national debt, the international trade imbalance, unemployment, oil wars and climate change. “Gas could overcome all five,” he said. At a time when the nation faces environmental, climatic, geopolitical and fiscal crises all related to our production and use of energy, a cleaner fuel source available right in our own backyard could be transformative. Yet Philadelphia is stalling. Last week, Council held hearings on the potential dangers of shale drilling and passed a resolution supporting a three-year moratorium on new wells. There’s already a hold on drilling in the Delaware watershed, where any contamination from the highly toxic “frack water” used to create the gas wells could find its way into water supplies here in the city. But the city’s efforts, veiled in concern about the environment, smack of energy-extraction nimbyism. We still use fossil fuels, but don’t want to bear any risks from obtaining them. Leave that to fishermen in the Gulf and soldiers in Iraq. Heck, how many watts did we burn at the Council hearing to light the room and power all the cameras and microphones, to say nothing of the fuel consumed by protestors driving in from across the state? By the very act

Would you rather have clean energy or clean drinking water? Your answer may depend on what side of the Marcellus Shale drilling debate you’re on. It’s either a job creator, a huge step toward ending our reliance on dirty energy and a cash cow of revenue, or it is a hazard that could have life-changing consequences for millions of people. There are only a couple bits of information we can all really agree on: The Marcellus Shale is huge (an underground layer of sedimentary rock covering nearly the entire state of Pennsylvania and extending all the way down to Tennessee); and it contains copious amounts of natural gas (one scientist estimated that the shale reserves contain up to 500 trillion cubic feet of gas). Here’s something else you should agree on: That drilling for said gas could lead to several different environmental disasters. (And probably will if we let this happen). Evidence is building that drilling could be as dangerous as it is lucrative, primarily due to the drilling method known as hydraulic fracturing. “Hydrofracking” as it is known in drilling circles (yes, there are drilling circles), involves the pumping of “fracking f luid” into a well at pressures that force the shale to fracture. The natural gas is then extracted by injecting water, sand and other chemicals into the fractures under high pressure to release it. The nature of these “chemicals” is what has many people up in arms. In a study of the effects of fracking f luid on drinking water, the EPA noted that most fracking f luids contain diesel fuel, which consists of a cocktail of toxic chemicals that can damage the liver, kidneys and central nervous system. Thirsty, anyone? The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation analyzed wastewater in several wells in the state and found insanely high levels of radium-226, thousands of times the limit that is safe to drink. Radium-226 is a highly radioactive chemical that can lead to lung and bone cancer, among other diseases. When you take into consideration that the Delaware River and Schuylkill River watersheds are both located near the Shale, these findings are even more alarming. The New York City DEP concluded that drilling the Shale “presents potential risks to public health and would be expected to compromise the City’s

News & Opinion On the right frack, from page 7

of debate we show why we need shale gas so badly. Desperate times call for bold measures, not more studies. The negative tradeoffs of shale drilling are nowhere near as devastating as scraping off a mountain-top to mine coal, or going to war to protect our oil supplies. Yes, there are safety concerns, but they can be addressed as long as we pay attention. “It’s not an inherently risky thing,” says Joseph Martin, a Drexel engineering professor who testified in favor of shale drilling at the Council hearing. With continuous monitoring, he says, the pipelines and well heads can be made secure—that’s five layers of steel and cement keeping frack water out of the ground until it’s deep inside the shale. “You have regulations, you have to be able to enforce them,” he says. And in case of a disaster, the Water Department is set up to handle it. “We are highly prepared for anything coming down from upstream,” says PWD Manager for Planning & Research Chris Crockett. The city employs a filtration and treatment system that already removes all kinds of shit and nastiness from the Schuylkill and Delaware rivers. Water quality is measured at every step along the way, from hundreds of miles

upstream to the point of output from faucets citywide. In the worst-case scenario, a major frack-water spill, the city can just shut down the river intakes until the danger has washed its way downstream. “If there is a problem, we’re going to be the first to sound the alarm,” Crockett says. If we’re going to drive cars and heat houses in the city, it’s not fair to exclude Philadelphia’s watershed from energy production. In fact, sharing the risk is the best way to ensure that industry is held to a higher standard. The gas industry can buy or politic its way out of poisoning wells here and there in rural Pennsylvania, but with millions of eyes on the city’s water supplies the companies have a much bigger disincentive against cutting corners. The salient point is that despite the risks, we still need energy. “It gets cold up here in the Northeast,” Martin says. “No one has come up with a way to make spaces warm up here without fossil fuel combustion in the basement. As a simple, practical matter, gas beats the hell out of everything else.” It’s not the sexiest slogan to rally around—natural gas, less bad than oil and coal—but it’s the reality we face. Get the drills ready. n

ability to protect the watershed and continued, cost-effective provision of a high purity water supply.” Wait, so why are we even arguing about this? The township of Dimock, Pa., is a drilling hotspot in Northeast Pennsylvania, and now serves as a microcosm of the potential consequences of natural-gas drilling. Dimock, an impoverished town of 1,300 people in Susquehanna County, opened its doors to the Houston-based Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation in 2008. Cabot has since drilled 73 wells, according to its most recent annual report, and in 2009 came under fire from the state Department of Environmental Protection for allegedly contaminating 16 private wells in Dimock with methane. The DEP recently ordered Cabot to pay for an $11.5 million dollar water pipeline to service the homes whose water supply were contaminated. In the fall of 2009, the same year that the contaminated water was found, as much as 8,000 gallons of fracking fluid was spilled, some of which trickled into a nearby creek in Dimock as a result of “failed pipe connections” from Cabot drilling sites. The fluids contained highly toxic chemicals and possible carcinogens (substances that cause cancer). The

DEP fined Cabot a mere $56,650 for the three separate spills, pocket change for a company that reported a net income of $148.3 million in 2009. Aside from the environmental and health ramifications of natural-gas drilling, the one topic that the public seems to be ignoring is how all of this natural gas would be delivered to Pennsylvania residents. In his testimony to City Council, Philadelphia Gas Works COO Craig White iterated that PGW has “not contracted with any supplier to purchase Marcellus Shale Gas in the past or in the future.” PGW currently purchases all its gas from the Gulf region, and White highlighted the lack of a pipeline from the Shale drilling sites as a major factor down the road. Unfortunately, it is highly likely that the Marcellus Shale will be drilled for gas. Like Big Tobacco many years ago, the drilling companies have powerful lobbyists and the money to stimulate local economies that can encourage legislators to devalue the environmental and human health of their constituents. Even more troubling is the fact that these companies can hide under the cloak of “clean energy alternatives,” a disturbing subtext to an already contentious issue. n

News & Opinion The Big Sharkey Show Your weekly Phils playoff-run column starts now. Ends when they win it all. By John Sharkey III feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

Carlos Fucking Ruiz The Panamanian assassin has been the life blood of the team in good times and in shit. Through all of the desperation and slumpage, this sick animal has steadied an at times mercurial offense through the choppy waters of mid-season Phamine. As a catcher, Choochie is defensively unmatched and responsible for some of the success in the pitching department, selection-wise. If he stays as focused and vicious, we should be coming up roses like Ethel Fucking Merman. the game and with home-field advantage throughout October. Anyone surprised? Not fucking me. This is why they pay me the big bucks. I am supremely confident a team with this much sack will make hay in the playoffs. Let’s break it down.

Predictions Predictions are for assholes, but I’m not gonna sit here and tell you I don’t think our Men can get the job done. So, this week’s official prediction: Phils win in three. Maybe four. Joe Morgan invites Reds’ manager Dusty Baker to have a dick-measuring contest in the locker room and I gain five pounds of pure muscle at the gym. n

The Regulars Like I’m gonna sit here like some ponytailed fruit with an empty Hall Of Fame ballot in my hand and write this thing without acknowledging the work horses that have brought our team to glory in

The First Enemy Our first post-season match-up will be the Cincinnati Reds, and I’ll tell you one thing: They strike not an ounce of fear in my tender little heart. The once proud and honorable club has snaked its way to the top of the weak NL Central while harboring the braggadocios dick-dogger Brandon Phillips, who’s proclaimed to be the best second baseman in the game. I don’t know what the back of your fucking baseball card says, but I can think of at least six two-sackers with the drop on Phillips after the name Chase Utley in line before him. Their starting rotation is about as potent as Rush Limbaugh’s, well, anything. If Bronson Arroyo and the dirty, girl-fighting Jonny Cueto (who forced Cardinal’s back-up catcher Jason LaRue to retire after sucker-kicking him in the head several times during a brawl earlier in the season leaving him with brain damage) is your level best, I have no reservations sending Kyle Kendrick on five Ambien out to start game one.

October 6-12, 2010

Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt I actually feel like a dickhead for having to articulate why these men are so crucial. It’s like having to explain the merits of Kill ’Em All. Lovingly dubbed H2O by their beloved Phaithful, these three starting pitchers have completely and utterly set fire to, and then pissed on, everything that’s gotten in their way. We know Roy Oswalt has the stamina for the deep months as he’s played the part of ace for the Astros World Series pitching staff in 2005—and just look at his hunting pictures on Flickr. His disdain for the media and his dismissive attitude toward the opposition make him equally as potent as the re-emerging Cole Hamels, who has taken off his

The Bench In a season beleaguered with annoying injuries, it’s been professional pine like Mike Sweeney, Ben Francisco, Ross Gload, Brian Schneider and Wilson Fucking Valdez especially who’ve saved this team’s ass from a late September vacation. In the absence of Utley and Rollins, Wilson Valdez has really stepped it up and for veterans like Sweeney and Schneider, this is their first whiff of October play. You can smell the gratitude in the sweat they leave on the field when the beckoning, all-knowing hand of manager Chollie Manuel goes a wavin’. I say this with the confidence of a thousand woodsmen: If one of our warriors is to fall, these men can take up the slack.

the recent years: The Dynasty Men like Chase Utley and Ryan Fucking Howard, who’s bashed his way to his fifth consecutive 30/100 season, have brought our team to a notoriously fearful status. Last season’s bed-shitter Brad Lidge has picked up his threatening closer game, sharpening that slider of his to cold 2008-esque accuracy, while everyday bash artists like Placido Polanco, Jayson “The Rooster” Werth and RAUUUUUUUUL Ibanez just keep fingering away. I’m also not going to ice Shane Victorino or Jimmy Fucking Rollins just because I’m running out of adjectives.

Hello, Asher Roth fans. My name is John and the big men with the big wallets at PW think my little weblog, The Big Sharkey Show, and the intellectual musings on the Philadelphia Phillies contained within, are worth a go in print. I’ll be with yous weekly as the Phils attempt to plough their large genitalia through the weak competition on their way to a third World Series appearance in as many years. Don’t worry, I’ll try to keep it simple. Who knows, in a couple weeks some of you might be able to maintain a conversation with an adult. I kid, I kid. This is the time when strangers become brethren and hetero-men embrace in the streets, so I’ll cut the smart-ass shit and get down to it. Like it or not, you’re all my Followers now. This year has been a strange ride for anyone smart enough to don the P on their person. A season plagued with injuries, Facebook nerd nay-saying and a general sense of futility in the media has, in the end, somehow found the Phils division champs with the best record in

2009 skirt. While both these men have postseason success, it’s a new tingle for Mr. Halladay. Something tells me he’ll be fine. Maybe it was the perfect game and 21 wins he brought to the table his first year in the red pinstripes. The 1-2-3 butt-fucking these guys will provide should be brash and vigorous enough to barrel through any opposition.

Singer Res takes another spin.

On a recent afternoon, Res sits in a coffee shop in West Philly, chilled-out in her everyday uniform of boots, jeans, sweatshirt, no make-up. She spent the better part of her day dropping postcards off at coffee shops and stapling posters to telephone poles. “No wonder people do that at night,” she laughs. “People looked at me like I was crazy!” It’s not that Res is a diva. She just never had to do these kinds of handson, nuts-and-bolts tasks. She shot through up from being an unknown

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

Hometown Philly, Back Again

Performing onstage with Idle Warship, a collaboration with Brooklyn rapper Talib Kweli and Canadian musician Graph Nobel, singer Res vamps in a leopard-skin, Hollywood pin-up dress, her hand folded into a pistol she stabs into the air, keeping time on a song that hangs on that voice, big as the sky and effortless as a bird. Res (pronounced “Reese”) still looks every bit the 23-year-old sexy club princess donning a tiara and white wifebeater with the girlie-glossed lips in the “Golden Boys” video that spun seemingly nonstop on VH1 Soul 10 years ago. While the singer looks—and sounds— pretty much the same, everything else around her has changed. Res spent most of the last decade on a rollercoaster ride through the music industry. On the breakthrough artistic promise of early hits like “Golden Boys,” “They-Say Vision” and “Ice King” off her 2001 debut album How I Do, Res lived large out in L.A. for years in a beachfront pad, cherry-picking producers and studio musicians and flying overseas for gigs on the label’s shiny dime. The upstart was determined to ascend as high as the game goes. But then the wheels came flying off the music industry and mid-level artists like Res were tossed out of the carriage. Now, Res is back home, a musicindustry refugee seeking asylum in Philly where she’s rebuilding her career, DIY-style. “I’m trying to incorporate myself back into the Philly scene and figure out where I fit in,” she says. “I need to build a musical home for myself and build a buzz. It’s a new time for me. It’s a rebirth. I’m doing this again, from scratch.” This time around, Res is working on her own terms. To announce that she’s home and ready to rock, the singer is hosting a homecoming residency Sunday nights through October at Silk City she’s calling Reset, also the name of the forthcoming album that will be ready for release early next year. Without label support, Res is a onewoman business screening musicians, scheduling rehearsals, booking shows and pushing publicity to lift her brandnew show, album and career up off the ground.

“They definitely marketed me more on the fact that I was a black woman from Philadelphia coming out in the year 2001 when this neo-soul thing was hot. ”

to a Big Deal with one big bang back when artists were still developed—now a concept as foreign as an 8-track tape. “I was sitting on a cushion where I could just perform and take pictures,” she says of her early time as an artist on MCA Records. She describes a sort of uppermiddle-class style of artist, where you log a ton of hours toward a carefully planned upward trajectory. “In a way I wish I had to do more, but I wouldn’t have been as good.” She didn’t have Skynyrd-style angst about workin’ for MCA. “It wasn’t the classic situation where an artist hates the label,” she says. “It was, ‘You want to hire this musician?’ Cool. ‘You’re still living across from the beach and we’re paying for it?’ Cool. They took care of me as an artist.” Res isn’t shy about admitting she’s not fond of working independently. On challenging days, she tweets frustrated blips like ‘I need a manager! I can’t do what I need to do without a budget! ’ But it’s better than the alternative. “I don’t like all the things you have to do to be indie, but I love to sing more than any of it,” she says. There’s no going back. “I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing on earth.”

Known as Shareese Ballard while

growing up on the Main Line, Res couldn’t hear destiny calling through the show tunes she sang as a student at Rita Cavell Music Studio in Bala Cynwyd. Cavell fondly recalls teaching “little Reesy.” “Oh, she was a beautiful little girl,” coos Cavell. “Her voice was very strong, very expressive. Good pitch.” Though Res performed with the Al Alberts Showcase and the Teddy Pendergrass youth choir, she didn’t think about being a professional artist. “I knew a lot of black girls who could sing,” she shrugs. Singing was just something else she did on top of squash, tennis and lacrosse when she wasn’t in school or ringing the register alongside her father, who passed away in 2008, at one of the family’s five convenience stores in North Philly—a job all the Ballard kids were assigned when they were about 8 years old. No, Res had modest aspirations: go to college, become a money market manager or something like that, get married and have some kids. Maybe sing on the side at open mikes for fun. Then the script flipped. During the summer of 1997 after sophomore year as a finance major at Temple University, Res

called Ron White looking for an internship. White, who passed away last year, was a Ballard family friend and prominent Philadelphia attorney and fundraiser for John Street. (In 2004, White made headlines for his alleged involvement in a corruption scandal with former Philadelphia City Treasurer Corey Kemp. He died before going to trial.) White encouraged Res to give his daughter, Santi, a call. Santi, now better known by her stage name Santigold, had moved from her hometown of Mt. Airy to Brooklyn and was working as an A&R rep for Epic Records and songwriter. “I called her and she was like, ‘Yeah we should write songs together,’” Res says. “So that turned into my staying in Brooklyn every weekend that summer.” Santi wrote songs and Res sang them. The duo recorded and circulated demos and Santi introduced her friend to industry folk. “I pretty much did everything they said to get the deal. It was about being in the right place at the right time and working hard and not even knowing I was working that hard,” she says. “It was fun and it was easy.” Next thing, Res inked a deal, left Temple and recorded her debut album How I Do with a professional production team at Electric Ladyland studios in NYC. “I really wasn’t an artist at that point,” she says. “I was a singer that got an opportunity to make an album and through making the album, I got developed. It turned my whole life around.” No one else knew she was an artist before How I Do either. “[My father] was like, ‘What? Reesy can’t sing!’ Then when I signed my contract and they said they were going to give me X amount of dollars, he was like, ‘What? They’re going to give you what?!’”

How I Do was released on MCA Records

in June 2001. On it, Res’ vocals sear through pop songs otherwise kept cool with bubbly blips and other ambient flourishes. The hit “They-Say Vision” ultimately charted No. 1 on the Billboard Dance chart. To date, the record has sold more than 300,000 records. Fans and insiders are quick to tell you that How I Do is a criminally underrated album that could and should have rocketed Res to superstardom. WXPN Program Director Bruce Warren insider and fan, recalls when the album dropped. “We played the shit out of that record,” says Warren. “Res is … a totally fantastic artist that deserves the success so many lesser-quality have had over the years since her debut.” Most radio stations don’t function like WXPN, a bastion of commercial-free, freeform radio. “It got no promo activity in our format. It was an R&B record, and marketing a cool sort of eclectic record like How I Do was probably not a thought of the label’s efforts to break her outside of the urban format.”

Res cuts to the point. “They definitely marketed me more on the fact that I was a black woman from Philadelphia coming out in the year 2001 when this neo-soul thing was hot,” she says. “I think they pushed that card a lot more than they should have, because my music was not even close to any of the artists I was being compared to, like Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and Alicia Keys.” But the racial fault line in American radio runs deep. “You’d think if you’re putting me in with Maxwell and Musiq Soulchild, you could get me on R&B radio, but my songs weren’t R&B enough,” she says. Meanwhile, it wasn’t peddled to pop and rock stations. “They have statistics like, how do females do in rock radio? A song won’t get added to rock radio if you’re a female because they say it doesn’t work, that people don’t like women rock songs. People break it down to numbers. It’s a business. How many black female artists who don’t do R&B win? You can count them on your hand. Therefore how many labels are going to pay for you to go there?” Res’ former collaborator Santigold hit a similar wall performing her own material. “It’s totally racist,” Santi notoriously told Lipster in 2008 about press calling her work R&B. “Everyone is just so shocked that I don’t like R&B. Why does R&B keep coming into my interviews? It’s pissing me off.” In reality, How I Do is much closer in style and sound to Gwen Stefani: Top 40-friendly pop pinned down by diverse beats and bass lines, drawing from a patchwork of styles. “I always felt like a neo-soul fraud,” says Res.

Res was determined to come even back

harder on a follow-up record. “In the big picture, 300,000 is great for a new artist but for being on a major label, it isn’t so great. It’s not even gold yet,” says Res. “So I felt I could improve.” This time out, the singer had to learn to write her own songs. “When I came into the industry, I was like, ‘I’m a singer, I just want to sing.’ The singers I like…Aretha, Etta James, Lena Horne, they don’t really write. That was my angle,” she says. Writing her own songs made Res less beholden to specific producers and writers and, feeling the tremors of the incipient industry quakes, it was wise to whittle down the number of people you had to rely on. It was tough to write her first song with everyone watching, waiting. The spotlight was trained on a skill Res wasn’t even sure she possessed yet. “It was very intimidating because I really love Santi’s songwriting,” Res says. “I wanted my songs to be as good, if not better.” As Res had her head down working on her sophomore effort, MCA Records was absorbed by Geffen Records. She was one of about 100 artists who were spared, and was assured that despite label politics and

Eventually, the “lost album” got to fans.

When she first arrived back in Philly,

the Reset residency. Local band Suspect 9 warmed up the crowd as they ducked in from the rain. A woman with huge Urkel glasses and braids can’t wait. Her name is DJ Aura and she’s been a fan for a long time. “Res’s first album was life-changing,” she gushes. “Around 2001, I saw her on HBO’s Reverb with Mos Def, and then I got the album. I recently heard she’s back in Philly so I’ve been following her.” Res, dressed down in denim, takes the stage and sits on a stool. “You guys want to hear a new song?” she asks. The audience hoots back, and Res begins “Hollow,” a brand new song that will be on the new record. She sings “They-Say Vision” next, and someone yells, “Aww shit!” A small crowd clusters around the stage. They mouth the words. When she’s done singing the hit, Res looks hesitant. She pauses, turns to the guitarist. She wants a do-over. Something wasn’t quite right. “I want to try the new one again,” she says. She swivels back to the crowd and smiles. “You guys don’t mind, right?” n

friends connected her to producer Tom Spiker and they began working on a dream EP: a collection of Fleetwood Mac covers titled ReFried Mac. Res loves Stevie Nicks. Her guitar sports a sticker that says “Fleetwood Black,” the name Res gave a band she started once for fun. Pretty much anytime she was home for the rest of 2008 into 2009 Res was babysitting her nephews. When she wasn’t home, she was finshing up Idle Warships’s Party Robot, flying out to perform one-off

interested in picking it up, but it was too expensive. “In the day and age I made albums, studios cost thousands a week on top of musicians and my living expenses. All that gets thrown in. So when my career at Geffen was over, they added up the bill,” she says. Res estimates that she was into Geffen for more than a million dollars. “That’s like Joni Mitchell numbers, not Res who sold 300,000 copies. It all goes back to a numbers game.” Suddenly, Res was on her own. Reality set in. Without label support, it was tough to pay a full band for smaller gigs. Without a budget, it’s tough to do most anything. The woman who once dreamed of being a money-market manager wasn’t happy focusing on the bottom line all the time. “It was about being the business woman, organizing everything and booking,” she says. “It became not fun.” Then salvation came in the name Gnarls Barkley. St. Elsewhere had just dropped and “Crazy” was ubiquitous. Cee Lo and his people invited Res to tour the world with them singing background vocals. “I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it,” says Res. “But then I thought, ‘I love to sing. Why am I hesitating?” Now she calls it divine intervention. “It was one of the best things I ever did. Now I look at everything else that way. Nothing is beneath me,” she says. “Why

industry changes she was still a priority. “I still felt good about my situation. I had Mick Gzowski mixing [my record]. He mixed Michael Jackson’s Thriller, OK?” Meanwhile, head honches were whizzing in and out the door. Then came Ron Fair. “It wasn’t until I was done with my album and mixing it and realized they weren’t doing the necessary steps into putting this album out.” Fair is a music-industry Midas known for flipping acts—mostly glam-bot girls and saccharine girl groups—into mainstream superstars. He’s done it with Christina Aguilera, Fergie and Keyshia Cole. “[Fair] was like, ‘I’ve got a list of people I need to put out before you. Black Eyed Peas, Will.i.am, Christina,” says Res. “All these projects! I [thought,] that equals four years of shit you need to put out before mine.” It had been five long years since her debut. The sophomore album was finished but just sitting there, stalled. “I told [the label] I was ready to leave,” she says. “At that point so much time went by. Everybody was saying, ‘I love your first album! Where’s your second album?’ I got sick of hearing that.” After hemming and hawing, the label released Res—but not the record. “[The label execs] said, ‘You left the label but you [can’t] take your music with you,’” she says. Other labels were

“I had all the music in my computer … instead of selling it—because technically I don’t own it—I pressed up 1,000 copies. Then I sold posters online and gave the music away for free,” she says. “So I’m not selling it. I’m giving it away.” There’s no calling it neo-soul. She titled it Black.Girls.Rock! It’s a more straightforward record; the songs weren’t buffed till they were slick and glossy. “With How I Do, we were trying to impress everybody. With Black.Girls.Rock! I was trying to impress myself,” she says. Instead of making a big splash, the little renegade sophomore album that could slipped quietly into the blogosphere stream, finding its way into the hands of fans who knew to look. Disillusioned, Res was considering packing it in and establishing a new musical home in affordable old Philly. Then her father died of a heart attack in January of 2008. It was a huge blow to the tightknit family. Res thought, “Why am I in L.A. living by myself? How am I mourning my father’s death if I’m living in L.A. being a rock star?” Also, her sister and brother each had a baby three months apart. “I don’t want to be that aunt that [my sibling’s] kids don’t know, and know me only as a picture, like ‘That’s your aunt who sings and lives in L.A.’,” she says. After talking it over with mom Denise Ballard, Res packed up and headed back east, moving into a house with her mom in Southwest Philly. “I needed her and she needed me,” she says. “I’m seeing her more now since she’s back home, but she’s doing a lot of shows so she’ll leave and then she’ll come back,” says Ballard. “She’s still busy and relatives still only see her on holidays because if she’s doing a show,” sighs Ballard, “she’s out the door.” Res says her first year back in Philly was particularly hectic. “I was doing a lot of back and forth with spot dates in Atlanta, Chicago and D.C.,” she says. “I was living here, but never planted my feet here.”

solo gigs and Idle Warship dates. Now things seem to be calming down. The ReFried Mac EP is ready to go. A second EP, BARE, a collection of covers and lo-fi interpretations of Res originals that she’s been recording with producer Dan “Danophonic” Raaf in West Philly’s Lower Level studio, is almost done. The hold-up is that Res wants to add strings to the tracks, but that’s beyond the budget. They hired a keyboardist to try to plunk in pizzicato notes, rummage around, see what might work. “I’m learning how to be indie the hard way, by wanting one thing and figuring out another way to do it,” she says. This past January, another death pushed Res closer to home. Canadian musician David “Soulfingaz” Williams, who played on How I Do, died unexpectedly in his sleep. Martin “Doc” McKinney, who produced the album reached out to Res to come up and play a benefit concert. When they performed on stage together, the next logical step snapped into focus. “We should have been working together forever,” says Res. “I realized that’s who I need to be making albums with period, like Sade makes albums with Sweetback, and that’s it.” They hit the studio and began working on Reset. “It’s about getting back to business,” says Res. “We know people love to do what we do, so let’s do it.” So she spent a lot of this year traveling to back and forth to Toronto writing and recording at Doc’s home studio. The style of Reset reflects where the singer is at in her career and life: A bit raw. Stripped down. Singer-songwriter, even. “I named this album Reset because I’m trying to let people know something new is coming,” she says.

The mostly instrumental Brooklyn duo Ratatat have seen their brand of dance-y, hip-hop-informed electro-rock—thick with synthesizer lines that zap, burble and soothe; guitars that sway and slice; and beats both off-kilter and propulsive—explode of late. Their myriad champions and associations over the years

overlook the blessed fiscal realism that’s so absent from New York. The opening night of this year’s Fashion Week (although at Wednesday-Saturday, it’s not quite a week) is all about the blissful convergence of style and accessibility. Eye-popping, candy-coated creations from global powerhouse Carmelita Couture will be showcased alongside beloved Philadelphia street denim purveyor Palmieri, while the “loud, ferocious, and sexy” sounds of Sarah Borrello and Self Help Revolver bring the noise. Art installations and local music acts round out this display of Philly style and innovation with a casual vibe that promises to bring a degree of both fashion and approachability to Philadelphia’s catwalks—and hopefully to its streets.

There are some operas to which you just don’t bring a friend who’s never been to one before—La Clemenza di Tito, Dialogues of the Carmelites, pretty much everything by Wagner—lest they, bored or traumatized, refuse to ever be your date to the opera again. La Tragédie de Carmen, being staged by some of the best student musicians in the world at Curtis through Sunday, is not one of them. The story is accessible, all sex, vengeance and hedonism with a surprisingly relatable emotional tone, and it’s full of melodies that even brand-new opera patrons can grab onto like a familiar life preserver in the sea of WTF that opera can sometimes be the first time you see it. Carmen’s ideal if you’re new to opera, or if you’re looking to gradually indoctrinate someone into (eventually) being your date for Wozzeck. Emily GuEndElsbErGEr 7:30pm. $35. Through Oct. 10.

Bobby Zankel’s Wonderful Sound 4 Brooklynite Bobby Zankel has called Philly home since 1975, and he’s a chief reason the city should take pride in its jazz scene. He’s not only a fire-spitting alto saxophonist, with a precise yet mercurial style that defies categories, he’s also a composer with a rhythmically charged, somewhat abstract vocabulary honed over the years with the Warriors of the Wonderful Sound. This week’s gig is an opportunity to hear Zankel scale down to a quartet and let that alto sax roam free. He’ll mix it up with the Warriors rhythm section: pianist Tom Lawton, bassist Anthony Tidd and drummer Craig McIver. dAvid r. AdlEr 9pm. $8-$10. With Thri.

Philadelphia food bloggers and culture hounds have been losing their damn minds ever since the Food Trust announced its firstever Night Market, a vendor-flanked food frenzy reminiscent of the evening bazaars in Marrakech and Istanbul. This much-anticipated street-food market got rained out last week, but now will shut down several blocks of Passyunk to feature the culinary offerings of more than 20 purveyors of prepared food from around the city. While you get your grub on, there’s live music from Attia Taylor, whose lilting voice and eclectic pop offerings will keep pep in your step even after too much Caribbean-style fried fish from Gigi and Big R.

English-born, Portland, Ore.-based multiinstrumentalist and vocalist Scout Niblett has called upon Steve Albini (Big Black, Shellac) to produce her last four albums. The Calcination of Scout Niblett is the apogee of their sevenyear studio relationship, coupling Niblett’s delicate but vengeful songwriting with crushing, gain-heavy guitars reminiscent of the less radio friendly aspects of the grunge aesthetic. By dropping Loretta Lynn’s twang while maintaining her “Don’t Come Home A’ Drinkin’” fury, and adding muscular, Mudhoney/Melvins-inspired sludge riffs, Niblett’s work rages against the “singer/songwriter” cage many attempt to lock her within. Her vulnerability is transitory and deceptive, for it’s always followed by a joyful slashing. ElliOTT sHArp

Austin’s Octopus Project spin sprawling psychedelia out of tinny, bubblegum electronics and manic barrages of guitar and drums. The band’s four members are inveterate instrument switchers, sometimes changing axes in the middle of songs. Together they create melodies with a fractal quality, as if even their largest gestures are comprised out of intricate, tiny identically shaped components, arranged in ticking, interlocking mechanical mandalas. Openers STRFKR, from Portland, work a similar vein of ecstatic complexity, celestial synths cresting over inexorable dance rhythms. JEnnifEr KElly

parents, it seemed, sadly, that the Coles were finally too old to rock. But not so fast. In 2008, two of them formed a new band, Pierced Arrows, that is just as uncompromising, just as desolately powerful as Dead Moon. “Let It Rain,” from the debut, is a time-battered triumph: weary, weathered and bleakly monumental. This is not your father’s rock ’n’ roll—it’s not even your grandfather’s—but it’s a powerful antidote to the surface-y, trendobsessed silliness of youth. J.K.

hen personal experience and cinematic representation intersect, the results can be diverse—personally resonant, painfully close to home, or flat and disappointing—but they are usually emotional in one way or another. In Celluloid E-Motions, Pallabi Chakravorty’s company Courtyard Dancers explore such intersections through performance, incorporating Indian dance, Urdu poetry and Hindi film lyrics into a complex vocabulary of movement and sound. Chakravorty is also a professor of Dance and Anthropology at Swarthmore College, so expect the performances to be full of complex theory and nods to the history of Indian dance, from traditional to contemporary. The dance troupe’s artistic mission is stated as “to dissolve boundaries of east and west, and mind and body, without losing cultural specificity,” so the added element of cinema in Celluloid E-Motions should be particularly apt.

have helped the cause: Daft Punk, Björk, the Killers and Interpol have taken them along on tours, and collaborations with Kid Cudi and MGMT have gotten Ratatat’s experimental creations into a lot of new ears. So perhaps they’re not quite the kind of band you’d expect to see headlining a place like Electric Factory, but their wonderfully odd, addictive grooves should fill up the room rather nicely.

The best cartoon band of all time is Fat Albert and the Junkyard Band. But coming in a close second is Gorillaz—the “virtual” British band first hatched a decade ago by Tank Girl cartoonist Jamie Hewlett and Blur’s Damon Albarn. Gimmick or not, it’s birthed some phenomenal dub/alt-rock/hip-hop songs over the years, and now Gorillaz arrive for their first-ever concert in our area. It’ll be a multimedia extravaganza, and even the live configuration of Gorillaz—featuring Albarn, De La Soul, Bobby Womack, former members of the Clash and many others—promises to be mighty animated.

As a teenager struggling to get her music career off the ground, Washington State singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile sang backup vocals for an Elvis impersonator and busked at Seattle’s Pike Place Market from sunrise to sunset. Now 29, Carlile regularly sells out large venues, scores hits at Triple-A radio, has Rick Rubin produce her albums, and doesn’t have to learn any more damn Elvis songs. Success has come courtesy of her robust, gritty voice and folk-pop songs that sometimes tap Coldplay-style Brit-rock for added melodrama. Tonight’s a particularly intimate gig for Brandi, and you can bet they’ll be hanging from the rafters. M.A.G.

Glassphemy What do you call recycling mashed up with catharsis? You call it Glassphemy!, Macro Sea’s bulletproof glass-lined art installation. Participants stand on a raised platform at one end of the 20-by-30 foot scaffold, and hurl glass at people on the other side in a magnificent display of sound and fury.

Los Campesinos!

October 6-12, 2010 • 20

Meg Ryan’s faux orgasm in When Harry Met Sally is cinematic legend—never before (on screen) had a woman moaned and groaned her way through a fake climax, fully clothed, in the middle of a crowded restaurant. Twenty years later, brave, lusty souls can do Sally one better and enter the Air Sex World Championships, performing their own extended, fully choreographed and soundtracked version onstage. Like air guitar, but nothing like air guitar—instead of “slappa da bass,” the gyrating contestants will be … well, slappin’ their own bass. Pretty much anything goes in this competition—simulated and fully clothed, of course. AlliSOn kruMM

This Welsh septet’s emergence seized the indie zeitgeist’s predilection for grit and beauty, balancing noisy indie ramshackle and nearly twee baroque grandiosity, delivered with playground enthusiasm. The lyrics are at turns sassily caustic and bare wire earnest, jaded and sentimental without sacrificing wit or eloquence. Their third album Romance Is Boring, out since January, boasted busier arrangements and more frenetic rumble at the cost of hookiness. This summer’s surprisingly crisp, especially string-laden All’s Well That Ends EP, takes the band from essential to acquired taste. ChriS PArker

Lush Life Next of ’Kin

The season’s right for pumpkin beer. By Cristina Perachio

feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

Fall, perhaps more than any other season, has a way of manifesting itself in crisp, nostalgia-inducing smells and tastes: burning leaves, newly sharpened pencils, caramel apples, cinnamon and, of course, pumpkin. Pumpkin pie is arguably one of the most comforting desserts there is, so it seems only natural to combine that sweet ’n’ spicy autumnal flavor with another one of life’s great comforts: beer. Pumpkin ale as we know it today is heavily influenced by the sweet and sharp spices contained in pumpkin pie (think cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice and clove); however, using regular old pumpkin to make beer dates back to 18th-century American colonists who were known to use pompion (pumpkin!) or just about anything to craft a brew when times were tough. So, pumpkin ale is as American as ... well, pumpkin pie. This fall, pumpkin beers are sprouting up all over Philly. See our top picks below, plus the best haunts to sip them in and which munchies go great with a mouthful of fall. Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale (Weyerbacher Brewing Co., 8.0 ABV): Swig this sweet, dessert-like ale at retro Varga Bar (10th and Spruce sts.) for a serious pumpkin and cinnamon treat. The sweetness is a bit syrupy and tastes more of bananas foster than pumpkin pie, so it’s great with something savory. Pair with their crazy delicious Kobe burger topped with aged cheddar, caramelized shallots, applewood smoked bacon, organic greens and heirloom tomatoes. That salty/sweet combination never fails. Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale (Smuttynose Brewing Company, 5.0 ABV): Do you have a childhood soft spot for grilled cheese and tomato soup on a brisk fall day? OK, well this is way better. Substitute the Campbell’s soup for the ultra-hoppy Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale—which tastes like a more traditional IPA with just a hint of spice—and order the outstanding aged cheddar and swiss grilled cheese with sliced apples and bacon at Good Dog (15th and Locust sts.) Southampton Pumpkin Ale (Southampton Publick House, 6.0 ABV): This

holiday inspired amber ale is lighter on the spice but still big on taste. If you’ve got a hankering for sweets but prefer to skip the seasonal fruitcake, stop by Devil’s Den (11th and Ellsworth sts.) and order a pint of Southampton with a slice of their devilishly delicious ginger cheesecake topped with cranberry marmalade. Or if you prefer something hearty, order their roasted lamb with pea puree, onion soubise and sweet clove sauce to bring out those pumpkin pie spices. Dogfish Head Punkin Ale (Dogfish Head Brewery, 7.0 ABV): Dress your pumpkin up and stop by one of Tria’s two locations (18th and Sansom or 12th and Spruce) to try this ever-popular full and spicy ale brewed with real baked pumpkins and traditional punkin’ pie ingredients like allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. For an equally flavor-packed and artful snack, try the warm poached black mission figs with gorgonzola and prosciutto di Parma or get an added taste of the holidays with the smoked duck salad with strawberries, pistachios, grana padano, spinach and citrus-mint vinaigrette. Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale (Brooklyn Brewery, 5.0 ABV): Swing by the Irish Pol (45 S. Third St.) to taste this warm malty beer heavy on the spices like nutmeg and hot with cinnamon plus a caramel “pie crust” aftertaste. Pair this spicy ale with the sweet ’n’ savory goodness of the $5 pulled-pork sandwich for a treat that’s heavy on your taste buds but light on your wallet. More pumpkin ales of note: • Sixpoint’s Pumpkin Brewster • Wolaver’s Organic Will Steven’s Pumpkin Ale • Micheloeb’s Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale • New Holland Ichabod Pumpkin Ale • Flying Fish’s Octoberfish • Triumph Pumpkin Ale • River Horse’s Hipp-O-Lantern Imperial Pumpkin Ale • Southern Tier’s Pumking • Elysian’s Night Owl and Dark O’ The Moon Pumpkin Ales • Arcadia Jaw-Jacker Pumpkin Ale • Saranac Pumpkin Ale • Buffalo Bills Pumpkin Ale • Allagash Pumpkin Ale


Inside Out

Queer Sighted Gloria Casarez puts the fair in LGBT affairs. By Chip Alfred feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

“We need more voices. We need to see reflective leadership and real diversity in the city leading us. Anything we do here needs to be evidence-based,” she says. “We need to know more about who we are.” primary organization in the city providing HIV prevention and care services to LGBT Latinos. Two years later, at the age of 27, she was promoted to executive director. Under her leadership, GALAEI provided Philly’s first mobile HIV testing centers to neighborhoods throughout the city. She also developed the Trans-health Information Project—the city’s first multi-service transgender health program. Casarez continued her work with the organization for nine more years before accepting the job with the Mayor’s Office. Along the way, she earned a reputation as a fierce, outspoken activist. “She kicks ass,” says Elicia Gonzales, who succeeded Casarez at GALAEI. “Gloria is a woman dedicated to standing up for what she believes in and for fighting with all of her might.” “Gloria built her career as a tireless and effective advocate for the most vulnerable members of the city,” says Perry Monastero, director of development and marketing for the Mazzoni Center. “She is known for her work to build support for people of color, low-income individuals and families, and especially the LGBT community.” While Casarez calls her position with the Mayor’s Office her “dream job,” she’s felt

Despite this lack of funding, resources and even a battle with breast cancer last spring, Casarez’s passion is evident as ever. “I went through weekly chemo and I did it at the height of the gay season,” says Casarez, who underwent several months of chemotherapy. “I didn’t schedule it. It scheduled itself.” She says that having to go though this personal battle in the public eye made it even more strenuous. “It was really scary. I was vulnerable,” Casarez says. “If somebody were to ask me about it or express concern, I didn’t have the resolve not to crumble. I was holding it together the best I could.”

Today, Casarez is healthy and her prognosis is good. “It’s a new normal,” she says. She feels fortunate she never had to stop working at what she calls her “dream job.” What helped her cope was the unwavering support of her family and her partner of nine years, Tricia Dressel, who Casarez says “means the world to me.” Despite the city’s challenges and the long hours, the passion Casarez has for her job is evident. “This work is about a community I am a part of—long before and long after it is my job for the mayor.” n

opening pitch of a Phillies game. “I staff an office of one,” Casarez says. “So it’s a little bit of everything.” The Office of LGBT Affairs, which includes Casarez and a volunteer advisory board, keeps the mayor and city government informed of the needs of LGBT residents and protects them from discrimination in employment, housing and public accommodations based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The job entails getting the necessary parties together to advance pro-LGBT legislation and keeping the community’s issues in the public eye— ensuring a voice to the voiceless. “I bring to City Hall that commitment to getting people around the table, to working it out, fighting it out,” says Casarez. “We have to.” Casarez sees her job as making sure the lives of LGBT people are reflected in the city’s practices. “Our work is not completely understood and, in some cases, not particularly welcomed,” she explains. Casarez addresses the key issues facing the queer community. Whatever the issue may be—discrimination, bullying, hate crimes, homeless youth, marriage equality—Casarez is the one who brings clusters of people and organizations together to assess the problem and develop a plan to solve it.

Directing LGBT Affairs is no cushy 9-to-5. On a typical day, Casarez might be planning an LGBT senior summit, assisting a merchant with a city-service issue, coordinating an LGBT History Month event, meeting with youth advisors to address bullying in city schools or throwing the

Casarez’s fighting spirit goes back 15 years. During the mid to late ’90s, she was the program coordinator for Penn’s LGBT Center, where she developed a studentmentoring program and initiated safe spaces for LGBT students of color, transgender students and queer women. Casarez also co-founded Empty the Shelters, a nonprofit anti-poverty organization in which she lobbied against anti-poor legislation and worked on affordable housing and homeless initiatives. In 1997, Casarez was named youth programs director for the Gay and Lesbian Latino AIDS Education Initiative, the

her share of frustration. She concedes that Philly’s economic crisis has altered the focus of the position a bit. “I didn’t think that two months into the job the mayor would be giving speeches about the bottom falling out on every level,” says Casarez. “A big part of my job became working to ensure the sky wouldn’t fall on top of it.” Funding was slashed completely for a number of LGBT organizations. Program grants that were promised had to be rescinded. City workers, including Casarez, took pay cuts. Many discussions with community leaders ended with the question: “How can we implement this project with no money?” Besides more funding, Casarez says, “We need more voices. We need to see reflective leadership and real diversity in the city leading us.” She also emphasizes the need for more data about Philly’s LGBT community: more details about its demographics, where we live, how we live, what we do and what we need. “Anything we do here needs to be evidence-based,” she says. “We need to know more about who we are.”

It’s a rainy August night at Citizens Bank Park just a few minutes before the Phillies take on the Astros. Thousands of fans watch as a petite brunette sporting a Phillies jersey steps up to the pitcher’s mound and prepares to throw the first pitch. It’s the ninth annual Gay Community Night at the Phillies, and the woman on the field is Gloria Casarez, Philadelphia’s first director of the Office of LGBT Affairs, appointed by Mayor Nutter in 2008. Casarez, considered by many the face of Philly’s queer community, trained for weeks to throw the pitch in front of friends, family, the Phillies and more than 1,000 LGBT fans. “How could I not take it seriously?” says the North Philly native. “I viewed so many YouTube videos of first pitches gone wrong.” Casarez throws the ball. The crowd roars.

“We have policies that are inclusive. Where we get jammed up sometimes is when the city has no procedures in place to back up the policies, or when people don’t know what the city’s values and beliefs are, they’ll go with their own beliefs,” she says. “We can’t perpetuate the notion that being inclusive and being equitable are nice things to do. Equity isn’t nice. Equity is what’s right.”

Playwright Jeffrey Hatcher is responsible for a wealth of entertaining plays: the theatrical Compleat Female Stage Beauty, the amusing story of homicide among the elderly Murderers, and Three Viewings, a trio of monologues about life and death. He has not been as successful when adapting other material for the stage, though, and the trend continues with his disappointing adaptation Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which opens the 2010-11 season at Bristol Riverside Theatre. The setting is London, 1883—in director Keith Baker’s production, it’s a fog-bound city dominated by dimly glowing streetlights, soot-streaked bricks and shadowy images. Jolly old England has never been so miserable—or dangerous. In the first five minutes, a man has dropped dead in the street, a father has slaughtered his family and a dog has apparently ripped out the throat of a prostitute—and to make matters worse, the corpses keep disappearing from the College of London Hospital. Hatcher has proved himself one of America’s most entertaining dramatists. His plays are usually swiftly paced and often mingle humor with a dose of the macabre (Murderers is especially effective in this regard). Sadly, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is just the opposite. Plodding, disjointed and humorless (the entire play is as somber as a graveyard), the script suffers from an excess of characters and an overly complicated plot. Dr. Jekyll (Michael Sharon) is a modern man of medicine who believes the human mind houses two streams of consciousness—the moral self and the primal self. To this point, he conducts clandestine experiments, hoping to isolate and eventu-

Looking to the past and the future, the Print Center this fall celebrates old-school letterpress and youth-culture favorite screenprinting. The letterpress show on the ground floor is a quick tutorial about Gutenberg’s 15th-century type-setting invention and its recent embrace by artists as a tool for book and print-making. The show, which rounds up letterpress books and posters from the last 35 years from private collections around Philadelphia, demonstrates the nostalgic appeal of the text-friendly medium with its inky blacks and printingplate embossment. Letterpress skews old by definition, and Peter Hanley’s “Fuck Digital” (2009)—the print states the title— shouts the letterpress artist’s feelings about the unstoppable wave of the future. Upstairs, two solo shows, by Isaac Tin Wei Lin and Andrew Kozlowski, push the 95-year-old center toward a more contemporary—screenprints. One “father” of contemporary screenprinting is Shepard Fairey, of OBEY and Obama fame. His where-have-I-heard-that-before credo, “just do it,”—that is, just print it up and wheatpaste it on city walls—gave screenprinting the DIY chops and street cred that appeal to many young artists. Fairey’s combination of old-fashioned technique,

epic quantity and macho means of distribution is by now an established recipe. Space 1026, where Lin was a member for many years, has original members who learned the art from the master. Lin’s installation, “One of Us,” is a commission by the Print Center, part of its new “Makeready” series about printmaking in contemporary art. It certainly follows the formula of epic quantities plus unexpected installation, incorporating 600 pink and blue prints—meant to be 3-D, and you can wear 3-D glasses—that wallpaper the gallery walls and floor, turning the space into a dazzling psychedelic cave. Into this cave, Lin has inserted a group of painted and printed human-scale wood cutouts of cartoon cats. Walking amidst the big, friendly cats in the pretty-colored environment, I thought the whole thing would transfer nicely to the Please Touch Museum. I looked for some deeper meaning, but even with the print pattern of bent lines like bent elbows evoking Islamic script, the piece, while ambitious, is thin. In the back gallery, Kozlowski’s forlorn prints mirror young people’s morbid fascination with the modern eco-train wreck of oil spills, melting ice caps, deforestation and the attendant loneliness and despair it brings to anyone brought up with this as the implied future. Kozlowshi’s a great drawing artist, and his works, like “Triumph!,” an image of a hand-fashioned flag on a stick waving jauntily in a fuschia sky, is ironic and fatalistic. Whose triumph it is? And whose flag? For all the print’s beautiful colors and lovely drawing, this flag might be a symbol of surrender, of the bad guy winning. Eco-themed work today is ubiquitous in the art world, but even though Kozlowski does it nicely, his irony-laced works bring nothing new to the discussion. While prints are a niche in the art world, they’re an important one, often providing an affordable entry point to the budding art collector. If you’ve never been, this is a good time to visit the Print Center. And be sure to spend time in the gift shop, a trove of affordable prints by local artists. n

ally cure what he calls “the beast in man’s nature.” But, as you probably know, Jekyll’s experiments unleash his primal half, Edward Hyde, who embarks on a spree of obscene acts of torture and murder. The play is overpopulated with hordes of supporting characters (the able but unspectacular cast plays multiple roles), none of which is especially interesting or well-developed. But the chief problem here is the conceit of having more than one actor portray the nefarious Edward Hyde, often at the same time. The show’s program explains: “Doesn’t it make sense, then, that sometimes Jekyll would swallow the tincture and come up with a vile version of Hyde, and other times he would swallow it and come up with a silky one, or a more seductive version, or a more pathetic one?” Depicting the many faces of evil literally with many different faces is an interesting idea in theory, but in Bristol’s production it’s undercut by execution. If under Baker’s direction the actors all play Hyde in exactly the same manner—shoulders hunched, knees bent, teeth bared, expressions frozen in a menacing grimace—why bother? And it’s not just that it’s confusing or poorly done; at the core, it belies the point of Stevenson’s story, which examines the split between good and evil in a single mind. In Robert Louis Stevenson’s original, Dr. Jekyll says that as Hyde he felt “younger, lighter, happier in body,” with “an unknown but not an innocent freedom of the soul.” But at Bristol, the strikingly similar portrayals of Hyde are of a melodramatic, sinister villain with a demented sneer and shifty eyes. Only Sharon gives us some of the original freedom of the persona, and from him we get the production’s lone chilling scene. Bristol’s production does have its positives—some of the design elements succeed in transporting us to Victorian London. Deborah Constantine’s lighting provides some visual dazzle (backlighting the large brick wall at the rear of the stage is a nice effect), the Victorian costumes by Linda Bee Stockton are handsome and effective in establishing class and rank, William M. Neal’s foreboding sound design is strikingly creepy. Baker’s decision to place actors throughout the auditorium is also good, emphasizing the production’s theatricality. But these admirable qualities are not enough to rescue Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which ultimately fails to engage intellect or ignite imagination. n

I’m happy—and a bit frustrated—to see El DeBarge back on the scene. When he showed up, sans an introduction, on the stage of this year’s BET Awards, to sing a medley of hits from his days as a member of the ’80s sibling singing quintet DeBarge, it took everybody by surprise. Mainly because no one ever thought that Black Entertainment Television would stop its award ceremonies cold to give an artist who hasn’t had a hit since the 1989 Quincy Jones production “The Secret Garden” stage time. But sure enough, it did. And there El was, in all his light-skinded glory. (We’ll get to the light-skinded stuff later.) DeBarge is reportedly 49 years old, but dude still looks as youthful as he did back in his “Rhythm of the Night” prime (except without the big-ass, curled-out hair and designer gear). It turns out this performance was just round one in DeBarge’s comeback, one that’s been damn near decades in the making. He came back later in the show to perform a track from his upcoming album, Second Chance, his first album since Heart, Mind and Soul way back in 1994. Out of all the members of the musical DeBarge family, Good ol’ Eldra has been both the most sought-after and the hardest to pin down. The boy has been something of a textbook musical genius/recluse, popping up sporadically to cameo on songs. “Most of the time I can’t even get a hold of him,” longtime friend and associate Gregory Williams (who launched the ‘70s R&B group Switch with El’s big brother Bobby) told Vibe in 2007. That same Vibe article broke down the various trials and tribulations that have plagued nearly all the DeBarge offspring since being taken in by Berry Gordy and his flock at Motown in the ’70s. Poised to become the next Jacksons, the DeBarges enjoyed a nice stream of pop success in the ’80s before spiraling out of control, mostly thanks to drugs. Needless to say, this led to sad news for the family ever since.

Bobby DeBarge died of AIDS in 1995, a result of years of heroin use. James DeBarge, who notoriously eloped with Janet Jackson in the mid-’80s, used cocaine to the point where it broke up his marriage. Bass-playing brother Thomas DeBarge served jail time twice for cocaine charges. And, in 1988, baby brother Chico DeBarge served five years and eight months for drug trafficking. Long rumored to be a cocaine addict, El DeBarge would be the last to head to jail on drug charges, spending 13 months in a California prison before getting released in January 2009. “I was in a drug coma,” he recently told Ebony about his drug use. “I went to sleep for about 22 years. I was never in denial about the fact that I had a problem. I just didn’t know if I was ever going to get off of it, but I didn’t give up.” Fortunately, DeBarge has managed to painfully get off that stuff (“You hurt from the inside out. Your hair hurts,” he told Ebony about the rehab) and get his ass back in the studio to release Chance. Due at the end of November, the album features production work from such heavyweights as Babyface, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Of course, DeBarge couldn’t have come back at a better time, especially considering that light-skinded (I know it’s light-skinned, but where I’m from, we call it LIGHTSKINDED!) brothas are making a comeback all over the place. You’ve got that Canadian rapper Drake as the cocoa-colored "it" Boy of the rap world, dropping verse after verse on every damn song you hear on the radio. Red-boned Terence Howard is the star attraction on the new Law & Order spinoff Law & Order: L.A., And let’s not forget Boris Kodjoe, all bald-headed and buff and shit, starring in that spy show Undercovers. Even DeBarge’s brother Chico made a pre-emptive strike on behalf of the creamy brothas when he dropped his own comeback album, Addiction, last year. I’m starting to think this is all Maxwell’s fault, coming back with a vengeance last year when he finally released BLACKsummersnight last summer. Now, light-skinded brothas are coming out in droves, getting all cocky with their good, shiny-ass complexions and wavy hair that makes them look like they have Indian in their family. Please excuse me if this sounds like some good, oldfashioned jealousy and hatred I’m spewing. But dammit, I had a hard-enough time trying to hook up with girls when I was a kid growing up in the ’80s, a.k.a. that golden age of the light-skinded black man. It was a time where if you didn’t look like Michael Jackson or Jermaine Jackson or Stoney Jackson or any gotdamn Jackson, sistas wouldn’t even talk to you. They’d call you Shaka Zulu or an African booty-scratcher. And I’M NOT GOING BACK TO THAT!! Man, I thought us dark-skinded brothas won the war back in the early ’90s, when Wesley Snipes came on the scene. He stabbed that pretty-ass Christopher Williams in the hand in New Jack City (the definitive death knell for the light-skinded brothas) and let everybody know that just because you look like you came off the Amistad boat, it doesn’t mean you can’t be smooth and sexy as shit! So, while I’m glad that El DeBarge is now clean, rested and ready to spread his falsetto goodness all over the airwaves, I hate the fact that I’m gonna have to step my game up now.

of moments that were really surreal and really great.” At the time, the six musicians had a sort of Venn diagram going between two bands–GrandchildrenandRadRacket. Bothoutfitstouredthecountryinthe same van, sharing members and gear, but last year, says Martray, “There was a really obvious realization that we were all doing one thing. There may have been different styles going on, but the thing about the Grandchildren sound was that it was getting overwhelming responses, and it was this meld of enough different sounds and incorporated enough of our individual talents that it felt right to put everything into one project. It made sense to have this as the umbrella for all of our creative energies.” So Rad Racket is on semi-permanent hiatus now, and Grandchildren is focused on developing a following both in Philly and beyond. “For us, building a local fanbase is key, if nothing else to feel connected to where we live,” says Martray. “And especially with running Danger Danger, we were a huge part of the music community in this city. But on the other hand, we’re travelers. A huge part of the reason we’re musicians is to travel and to travel with purpose, not just as tourists. To bring our art to different places and see how it works. It’s really important what the kids in West Philly think of Grandchildren, but it’s just one dimension of what you do with your art. You bring it to kids in Fargo and you see how they respond and you get more of a perspective of what you’re doing. It brings a lot more clarity as far as making even better music down the line.” n

WEEK'S WORST

Aaron Lewis

 aron Lewis’ only demonstrable talent A is creating music as pallid as Matchbox 20, yet still able to pass itself off as metal. With Staind, he pioneered the all-ballad format creating songs that—aside from a power-chord chorus— lack the juice to keep a penlight from flickering. Lewis’ endless melodrama is indulgent enough to make Jewel seem poignant, purveying malingering selfpity that resonates with emotionallyarrested losers unable to extort any sympathy from their friends. Staind’s last album, The Illusion of Progress, could be the epitaph for their career, barfing up formulaic banalities for victims still blaming their childhood and ex-girlfriends for their troubles. The secret of their success lies in appealing to those whose world barely extends beyond their own skull. That Lewis has allegedly finished a country-rock album tells you everything you need to know about that genre’s future vitality. Say hi to Hootie. (Chris Parker) n Tues., Oct. 12, 8pm. $51.

think that honing the music over that time andfiguringouthowtoatleastreproduce it live or make it even better has really turned us into something special.” A few spins of Everlasting provide insight to why the creative journey lasted so long—its polyrhythmic beats, experimental guitar, synth-generated tones, and symphonic sweep makes for complex tunes, but they’re still rendered with a remarkably light touch (thanks perhaps to some sweet vocal harmonies and accessible, affecting melodies) to keep things from getting ponderous. Indie touchstones like Animal Collective, Dirty Projectors and Ratatat have been thrown around by critics as points of comparison, and already the online buzz is mounting. Much of Grandchildren’s history is tied into West Philly’s famed Danger Danger house—a hub for the city’s underground/ fringe music scene, where Martray and the rest of the band lived for two years (from 2006 until 2008). “I think the creative energy of having this house where you’d have shows in the basement, the firstfloor,bedrooms,everywhere–400to 500peopleinthisplace–thatenergyjust fed back into the music we were making. That’s really when the album took shape and where Grandchildren took shape as well. “We had every kind of music,” he continues. “We had old free jazz musicians like [Sun Ra Arkestra’s] Marshall Allen, you know, 80-year-old guys playing to 20-year-old kids in our living room. I remember sitting in [Grandchildren’s] Russell [Brodie]’s bedroom, which was kind of the green room of the house, and Marshall Allen was sitting there and all these young college kids, these white hipster kids, were trying to muster up the courage to talk to him.

Naan compliant: Left to right, Mumbai dal, veggie malai kofta, chicken korma and paneer tikka masala surround a bowl of rice at Mumbai. they seem to be aiming for something else entirely: A neighborhood Indian restaurant whose primary focus is on healthfully prepared dishes that can be enjoyed quickly and with minimal fuss. In that regard, it’s succeeding beautifully, just as the best Americanized-but-no-less-enjoyable Chinese restaurants have all over the country. That’s the good news. The bad is that there’s risk involved: By sanding off the more idiosyncratic edges of the food to make it appealing to a wider audience, the soul of some of the dishes is lost. Fortunately, the team behind Mumbai seems to constantly be adjusting its preparations for the better as needed. Regardless, Mumbai should, at the very least, prove to be a gateway through which Indian-food novices walk on their way toward an appreciation of the variety and diversity of the subcontinent’s cuisines. For the rest of us who have been eating and enjoying the food all along, Mumbai is a quick, convenient, pleasant way to get a fix of some of the flavors we love. And even if it so far lacks the excitement of other, less compromising spots around town, that’s something to cheer. n

tive flavors of the bell peppers and onions, it’s the homemade cheese cubes that steal the stage here: The milky roundness of their flavor nods in the direction of really well-made mozzarella, and holds your interest despite the familiarity. Homemade vegetable samosas, forgettably bland on my first visit, were far more interesting the second time I tried them. Cumin and coriander were in greater evidence, as was the turmeric that, this time, had been used as much for its sweet-savory flavor as its telltale golden color. During a follow-up phone interview, Singh explained that he and his team deliberately started off most of their dishes on the milder side, and have been regularly ratcheting up the spice as they get a firmer grip on the desires of their customers. Mumbai dal, salty and rib-sticking, was enough to make me wish for the cold weather to arrive just to have an excuse to eat more of this glistening, deeply colored lentil stew. This is a seriously delicious vegan dish, just as suited for meat-lovers as it is for those who abstain. Then there were misses—like a forgettable mixed-vegetable curry, whose mushy cauliflower, watery string beans, soft potatoes, squash and thoroughly underperforming sauce could have come from Trader Joe’s. And the milk balls in gulab jamun tasted of the fridge and proved to be little more than vessels for the monolithically sweet honey in which they rested—for dessert, better to stick with the ras malai, light cheese dumplings in sweet milk whose cardamom florality made them a far more interesting choice. I wonder, however, how much Mumbai should be judged by the metric of spicy authenticity, because

Mumbai represents an interesting point in the evolution of Indian food in the city. Until it opened its doors on the 900 block of Locust this past July, subcontinental dining had been heading in an entirely different direction around here, the focus generally shifting toward clear, lesscompromising flavors that implied a confidence that non-native eaters could and would get it. And, indeed, restaurants like Ekta and the everexpanding Tiffin have done more than their part to change the food vocabulary of Philadelphia. Which is what makes Mumbai such an interesting place to consider. While it doesn’t hew to the orthodoxy of many other standout Indian spots around town—including University City’s New Delhi, which Mumbai’s Rick Singh also co-owns with other family members—it represents the further mainstreaming of a cuisine, and all the good and bad that that implies. Chicken korma provides a handy example of how completely Mumbai succeeds when its flavors are fully developed. Here, the subtle spiciness of the yogurt sauce in which the plastic-fork-tender chicken was simmered gently tickled the back of the throat but not the tongue, the full range of home-ground spices allowed unimpeded expression. Firmer but no less moist was the chicken tikka masala. Here, though, was the first indication that Mumbai was aiming at a different target: The sauce—sweet, creamy, tomatobased—could have been at home just as easily at a neighborhood Italian restaurant as here, and a wedge of garlic naan made it even clearer: India meets South Philly. When Mumbai gets it right, things turn out beautifully. Vegetable malai kofta is hearty enough to satisfy even avowed carnivores, and the homemade curry powder lends the firm veggie balls themselves a depth that makes the tomato-yogurt sauce a nice addition, but not nearly as necessary as it would be had the balls been less well-crafted. Paneer masala proves that mild and interesting can co-exist. And despite the inherently more asser-

SIX PACK

A Dull Stranger

Six Biopics Made When the Subject You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is rote par Was Still Alive for the late-career-Woody-Allen course. By Matt Prigge mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com

By Sean Burns

sburns@philadelphiaweekly.com

Night and Day (1946): The noble thing to do is to let a great person die before you construct your towering filmic monument to them. Otherwise, you’re susceptible to ethical or at least artistic compromises. Like, say, not mentioning that the subject of your whitewashed film—moony composer Cole Porter (Cary Grant)— enjoyed the company of both girls and boys. That omission was later corrected by 2004’s still-worthless De-Lovely. The Babe Ruth Story (1948): The Bambino died mere weeks after seeing his first biopic’s premiere, but because he was alive during production, the makers had to make certain, well, corrections. Ruth’s first wife is missing, and he walks on water so much that even his dingers can cure cancer. The Jackie Robinson Story (1950): Because it was made only a third of the way into his nine-year MLB career, the first black baseballer was able to play himself. He never acted again. Unless you count Sesame Street. PT-109 (1963): Personally overseen by JFK himself, including the selection of Cliff Robertson as his younger self, this dramatization of the sitting president’s storied stint commanding a WWII patrol boat debuted on June 19, 1963.

delivering the same cartoon performance that she gave in that cringe-fest), leaving his wife, Helena, to seek the solace of a fortune teller. Overplayed by legendary stage actress Gemma Jones, Helena’s late-life supernatural fixations are just another broad device for Allen to again vent his spleen about religion and the futility of seeking systems of order in a godless universe. We’ve heard this rap before, but at least he used to throw in some jokes. Even more familiar is the plight of Jones’ son-in-law, Roy, a once-successful writer suffering from second-novel syn-

October 6-12, 2010

The Social Network (2010): Mark Zuckerberg donated $100,000 to struggling Newark schools a week and a half before the film chronicling his cruel ascent to the world’s youngest billionaire hit more than 3,000 theaters. And yet the film itself ends up painting him as a cipher—at least, as only partly an asshole, visibly unnerved when his fucking-over of his best friend is complete. n

It’s that time of year again—another of Woody Allen’s annual exercises limps into theaters, full of moneyed infidelity, old jazz standards and rote pessimism. It’s hard to fight the urge to just cut-andpaste from my older reviews of Allen’s late-career output, as that seems to be how he writes his screenplays these days. After a seriously dire decade that offered career-low dreck like Melinda and Melinda and Hollywood Ending, things seemed to be looking up slightly for the Wood-man on his past couple outings. The slight Vicky Cristina Barcelona at least had a randy charm, and last summer’s Whatever Works benefited from Larry David’s dyspeptic presence. He was hardly helming masterpieces, but at least Allen seemed engaged with his material again. Not so in the case of You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, which feels enervated and wheezy enough to rank in the bottom 15 or so of Woody’s 40 features. A recycled recitation of the filmmaker’s pet themes, it has all the verve of a contractual obligation. This time he doesn’t even seem to be trying. Anthony Hopkins (himself no stranger

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

Raging Bull (1980): Middleweight legend Jake LaMotta is still with us, and was only in his 50s when he let Martin Scorsese make a deeply unflattering portrait of his violent urges. He took it well. As Robert DeNiro, accepting his Oscar, cracked that it was Joey, not Jake, who was suing them, Jake, in the audience, let out a deep, welcoming laugh.

Yellow light: Anthony Hopkins as a London man in a three-quarter-life crisis and Naomi Watts as his frustrated daughter-in-law in Woody Allen's latest.

drome, even though he’s on his fourth. Hapless Roy (Josh Brolin) drives limos and drinks, borrowing money from his in-laws while ignoring his long-suffering wife, Sally (Naomi Watts). Watts locates a surprising degree of sympathy in Sally, choking back feelings for her smoothtalking art-gallery boss (Antonio Banderas) and struggling valiantly with long passages of blunt, over-written dialogue. Or maybe she just seems likeable because Roy is such an ass. It’s rare to find a bad Josh Brolin performance, but he’s perfectly dreadful here, miscast as a tweedy, neurotic intellectual with the obligatory Woody-ish stammers and exaggerated hand gestures. Stuck with a terribly unfortunate haircut and distracting wardrobe that’s countless shades of beige, Brolin offputtingly flounders his way across the screen, preposterously charming his sexy next-door neighbor (Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto) by admitting that he stares at her through the window while she’s getting undressed. A charmer, this one. Naturally she calls off her wedding and introduces him to her parents, because this is the kind of Woody Allen film where people casually bounce in and out of affairs that don’t make any sense on a basic screenplay level. You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger suffers mightily when viewed next to Allen’s lacerating 1992 masterpiece Husbands and Wives, which charted similar adulterous liaisons and came to many of the same conclusions. But that picture had grit, vigor and often volcanic emotions. Here everybody just seems bored and vaguely disappointed. Hopkins looks comatose half the time. Allen himself seems to give up and go home about two-thirds of the way through his story. Relying on an omniscient narrator (Zak Orth) to drop literary references and handle all the awkward exposition that Woody typically shoves into his characters’ mouths, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger abruptly cuts off, leaving several central story conflicts unresolved and wrapping itself up with another quick riff about cosmic ironies and the meaninglessness of existence. We’ve just been here so many times before, and will presumably be back again next year, when Allen’s already completed Midnight in Paris hits theaters. n

Sometimes what’s in your head isn’t as crazy as you think.

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

An awful lot of trouble to go to just because some people don’t like subtitles, director Matt Reeves’ instant xerox of Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In is about as doggedly loyal as remakes get. Let Me In is a dutiful, reverent replication, but I still can’t for the life of me figure out why this movie karaoke exists. Taking a dim view of tweener interspecies swooning, the films (both adapted from a novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist, who also penned the screenplay for the Swedish original) upend Stephenie Meyer's romantic notions of vampire cuddling, with a bullied child falling under the spell of the undead gal next door. Copy-catting Alfredson’s stark, wintery compositions and early 1980’s latchkey-kid malaise, Let Me In stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as our tremulous protagonist, whimpering his way into the affections of Chloe Grace Moretz’ Nosferatu-by-wayof-Juno. Dad’s out of the picture and Mom’s a born-again Jesus-freak, and after daily drubbings in the schoolyard, Smit-McPhee spends his evenings awkwardly bonding with Moretz, never suspecting her rather large secret. Things can’t stay sweet for very long. As in the previous picture, a mood of ominous despair prevails. But Reeves is less trusting of silences, enlisting a cacophonous score by Michael Giacchino to ramp up the tension at odd intervals. Moretz, so marvelous as instant icon Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass, is slightly more accessible than her guttural, growling predecessor. But Reeves can’t be accused of soft-pedaling the gore. Or the cheap CGI effects. If you’ve never seen Let the Right One In, this might all seem wonderful. But if you have, it’s just secondhand material with no personality or ideas of its own.

C By Sean Burns

Though a documentary, and one that exposes a horrifying ritual to likely ignorant Westerners, Lixin Fan’s Last Train Home has the shape of classic tragedy. The subject is the Chinese custom of letting its migrant workers return home to their families only once a year. At 130 million workers, it’s the planet’s largest human migration, and Fan's cameras visit the overflowing stations and clogged trains thrice. Out of the masses, Last Train Home focuses on the Zhangs, a couple who toil in a garment factory and send their money to remote Sichuan, hoping their two kids won’t face the same life of comfortable misery. But Qin, their teenage daughter, sick of loneliness and studying, decides to quit school and follow her folks. Their already slim relationship is sorely tried, and pretty soon our subjects don’t mind throwing full-on smackdowns in front of their documentarians. Filmed over three years, Last Train Home has been ably whittled down to an air-tight narrative. Every sentence spoken bolsters the theme of a family broken by a cruel national practice; every scene conveys their despair. In fact, in this age of Exit Through the Gift Shop, I’m Still Here and Catfish, it’s often downright fishy. Fan films in the verité style of D.A. Pennebaker and Frederik Wiseman, but the film doesn’t always feel genuine—whole scenes consist entirely of bald exposition, as when Qin’s disappointing decision to drop out of school causes her mother to say, simply, that she’s disappointed in Qin’s decision to drop out of school. Others are blatantly staged, unless the Zhangs let Fan hang out with them as they chatted in bed. That’s not to say what happened didn’t happen—just that Fan wasn’t above restaging certain scenes his cameras may have missed. But Last Train Home, suspiciously or not, is a stronger story than most manufactured stories. However inauthentic it sometimes may be, it’s true enough. n

© 2010 SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT, LLC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

D+ By Matt Prigge Anyone who saw (especially anyone who enjoyed) either Half Nelson or Sugar would never expect its makers to be capable of a musical number involving a glittery Zach Galifianakis with a foot-high pompadour wailing “Under Pressure.” Or of magically resolving characters’ deep personal traumas. Or of using a tripod and doing fancy tracking shots. Or of generally upchucking the kind of overpolished, cutesy “indie quirk” that once a decade or so manages to cross over to box-office booty. But such is the depressing, heartbreaking spectacle of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story. Half Nelson was in part notable for sounding stupid but playing great—Funny Story is just the opposite. Adapted from Ned Vizzini’s novel, it follows suicidal 16-year old Brooklynite Craig (Keir Gilchrist), who coaxes his way into the psychiatric ward of a hospital, populated by some wacky nutters: an acidburnout Hasid, a dude who screams a lot, an agorophobe who might be lured from his bed with the right song. Perhaps this newbie will learn that life is worth living, bring some sunshine into these crazies’ lives and maybe even score with Manic Pixie Dream Girl patient Emma Roberts, not remotely credible as a girl with mysterious scars across her cheek. Here’s the chance for Boden and Fleck to flaut convention and offer a smartly mordant purview of health-clinic life—but, improbably, they don’t take it. This would be forgivable if the movie were funny, but the only joke that works is Jeremy Davies cast as a sane person at a mental institution. Ditto if it were moving, but its serious bits are almost offensively trite and banal. Only Galifianakis knows what he’s doing, in a soulful turn that nets him a lot of goodwill that gets him started digging out of

My husband has a cuckold fetish, which we have indulged through two drunken threesomes with two of his best friends. The first time, he really had to talk me into it. The second time, he steered me in that direction and I took the wheel. I now have had sex alone with Friend Two a few times. My husband was OK with it at first, but now he wants it to stop. I like the control he gave me, and now I don’t want to be told no. He opened the door, and I don’t want to close it. What do I do? Not Ready To Stop

You close the damn door and you let your husband see that it’s closed. You tell him that you’d rather the door were still open, NRTS, but you assure him that it’s closed for now and will remain closed until he’s ready to open it again. That’s pretty much the only way you can have your husband and, at some point down the road, “the control he gave you” too, i.e., his consent to fuck around with other men. Then you’ll be able to open the door to a threesome again, this time without a booze assist. Although it might take him longer to get comfortable with the idea of you seeing other guys alone, which seems to have triggered the wrong kind of anxiety, i.e., anxiety of the nonboner-inducing variety, which is not what emotionally safe and sane cuckolding is all about. Trust me, NRTS: Your husband is still into cuckolding. That’s not a kink that evaporates after one or two drunken threesomes. He’s probably just a little spooked by how quickly you progressed from having to be talked into it to having to be talked out of it. A time-out will give him a chance to see—and give you a chance to demonstrate—that he is still your first priority, emotionally and sexually. Which he still is, right?

Where lust reigns supreme 24/7…

then she’s obviously not mature enough to waste your valuable time (and tongue) on. How come when I look up the history of the T-shirt on Wikipedia, there’s a picture of you? Are you aware of this? Jewdizzle

I invented the T-shirt, and every time one is sold—even one with rapper 50 Cent on it—I get a royalty check. That’s why I don’t have to have a real job and can devote my time to answering questions from cuckolds’ wives, lesbians and people interested enough in the history of the Tshirt to read the Wikipedia entry about it. I want to thank you for the It Gets Better Project. My son is 14 and a sophomore in high school in rural Kentucky. He isn’t athletic. He isn’t religious. He isn’t in ROTC. He is constantly being called “gay” or “faggot,” oftentimes by the people he thought were his friends. He tries to ignore them, but it doesn’t stop them. He tries to debate them, but it doesn’t stop them. So far, it hasn’t gone beyond name-calling, but I worry. I showed him your site the day it went live. He sat down and watched the video that you and Terry put up. Since then, I have seen him checking the site out on his own. I don’t know if he is gay, but I do know that your message has touched him. Although he does confide that four years is still a long time to wait for things to get better. I think that seeing so many other people say the same thing holds much more weight than having his mother tell him. So thank you again for sharing. A Concerned Mom

In the last two weeks, we’ve learned of five more teenagers who were being bullied and took their own lives: Cody Barker, age 17, of Shiocton, Wis.; Asher Brown, age 13, of Houston, Texas; Seth Walsh, age 13, of Tehachapi, Calif.; Tyler Clementi, age 18, the Rutgers University student who jumped off the George Washington Bridge; and Raymond Chase, age 19, a student in Providence, R.I. Their deaths come after the suicides of Justin Aaberg, age 15, of Anoka, Minn., and Billy Lucas, age 15, of Greensburg, Ind. Hundreds of LGBT people all over the world have uploaded videos to the It Gets Better Project’s YouTube channel in an effort to bring hope to kids who are being bullied because they are gay or perceived to be gay. People are sharing their stories and letting these kids know that it gets better. By the time you read this, the videos at the IGBP will have been viewed, collectively, more than a million times. Go to itgetsbetterproject.com to see the videos or to upload one of your own. Four years is a long time to wait, ACM, and what about making things better right now? Gay, lesbian, bi and trans activists, inspired by the IGBP, have launched the Make It Better Project. Events are planned for all over the country between now and Oct. 11, which is National Coming Out Day, to raise awareness of the problem and to push for legislative action now, like the immediate passage of the Safe Schools Improvement Act and the Student NonDiscrimination Act. You can learn more about events in your community—and how you can help to make it better now—at makeitbetterproject.com. n

You don’t want to make her self-conscious, and that’s a lovely impulse, but she’s making you self-conscious, LOUD, and you’re just going to have to risk making her self-conscious. Because we’re not talking about a few loud yelps or screams at the climax(es) of the act(s), which is something a roommate or a neighbor can reasonably be expected to endure, but caterwauling throughout. That’s not OK. Tell the new girlfriend that the yelling wouldn’t be a problem if you lived on 200 acres of land, but you live in an apartment building, in the city, and you have a roommate and neighbors. Under those circumstances, you have a right to ask her to stifle herself. And if she reacts badly, or if she sulks like a child,

I am a 23-year-old lesbian with a beautiful girlfriend whom I met a month ago. Here’s the problem: She screams so loudly throughout sex that I am concerned for my roommate and other people who live in our building, as well as the entire neighborhood. I would know how to handle this situation if she were completely mute during sex—draw her out, make it into a game, etc.—but I’m scared of telling her she’s too loud, because I don’t want to hamper her enjoyment. I even tried to make this into a roleplay game where we would pretend we needed to be silent for some reason, but nothing makes a difference. How can I approach this without making her self-conscious? Lesbian Over Ungodly Din
