Local recording studios: laying down their lives There are those spots in a song — those elusive cracks between the notes, the intangible vortex where the magic resides — that ultimately make a good song great. Bands try to create that magic, and studios try to capture it. Yet there’s no map, no incantations, no clues, no pixie dust. Most fans tend to focus on the Rochester music scene from a live-show perspective. It’s one thing to assemble a band and bang out a show, it’s another to harness the energy and creativity and lay it to tape. Often up-and-coming bands don’t live long enough to make a record anyway. But for those that do survive the
myriad quirks and hurdles that come with the pursuit of artistry and glory, there are plenty of recording studios in our mid-sized city just waiting to give them a shot at immortalizing their sound. Local recording studios offer bands comfort and guidance, as well as a host of modern or vintage technology. Many, if not all, are run by people passionate and personally invested in the recording field, and even though technology continues to shift and home studios have become more affordable and thus more prevalent, the professional recording studio will endure. That’s because the pursuit for magic persists.

Regarding Ron Netsky’s “Labor’s Love Lost” (October 13): I have not read “Stayin’ Alive: The 1970’s and the Last Days of the Working Class,” but the title of that book alone raises two questions regarding Jefferson Cowie’s ability to discuss workers and work with any semblance of knowledge. First (and this may come as a shock): there IS still a working class. I am a member of it, everyone I work with is a member of it, the people sitting sleepily behind most of the oncoming headlights I pass at 5 a.m. every weekday are likely members of it. I’m not talking about “labor” and I’m not talking about “jobs”; I’m talking about work. I’m talking about doing what you don’t necessarily love doing (and maybe hate doing) and maybe cursing at the alarm clock every time it rings but then getting up and getting dressed and getting to the place where you do it. Whether it’s lifting steel or filing papers or milking cows or anything else: if you do it for the money and you can be kept on or fired depending upon performance, I call it work. And though it might not be obvious, there are a lot of us doing it. Ron Netsky asked Mr. Cowie: “Why do working people vote against their best interests?” Put yourself in the shoes of a working person, someone who lifts things all day, or deals with impossible situations all day, or does anything that requires true effort all day. Then imagine that lasting your whole lifetime. Then think about the government (Democrats and Republicans and Independents) that takes your money, something you’re trading your life for. Then consider the insult in the question: “Why do working people vote against their best interests?”
What bothers me most is that you would never have the guts to separate people into any other group and pose this question. If you changed “working people” to “blondes” someone would’ve found it offensive and tossed it. I’m going easy on you here, but you get the picture. That’s all I’ve got, other than to say that if Cowie’s dad had written a book, I bet a lot of us would’ve found it fascinating. MICHAEL JONES, FARMINGTON
Working class: not ‘the last days’
I appreciate the profile of Jefferson Cowie by Ron Netsky (“Labor’s Love Lost,” October 13). A few observations, however, to place that article in a larger context: First, the class politics of the New Deal were damaged long before Nixon when McCarthyism purged unions, academic institutions, and popular culture of supposed “communists” and left-leaning cultural workers in the 1950’s. That oppressive shadow lingers today so that socialism remains a dirty word. Second, it is not accidental that politicians have a hard time actually saying the words “working class” and substituting some kind of amorphous “middle.” This category obfuscates the real differences between the powerful and powerless, those few with many choices, and the many with limiting circumstances. Third, without any significant media attention, some of us have pushed back against this deliberate erasure through the formation of working-class studies in the academy and community, labor, and academic affiliations. Yes, the working class have multiple cultures — expressed through literature, music, photography, murals, films, etc. — people’s cultures, not corporate-determined pop culture. (Bruce Springsteen is the heroic and poetic exception.) Working-class studies is not, by the way, white studies. Fourth, in explaining the political shift claimed by Cowie, Netsky writes: “As Democrats began bringing more women, minorities, and youth to the party, Republicans took advantage by appealing to the working class.” Well, are there no women, minorities, and young of the working class? It’s a false dichotomy and assumes that hard hats and a macho swagger somehow define the working class.
Fifth, as someone born and raised in the working class, I want to emphasize the value of that identity, the ethos of shared struggle and mutuality that is my cherished legacy. The right wing and Republicans still have not figured out how to appropriate those values. Finally, I welcome this cover story and hope that it will coax City to cover labor issues as it has in the past, remembering, though, that people are more than their jobs. JANET ZANDY, ROCHESTER

On Mario Danielle and the eagles’ nest on his Irondequoit Bay property: Although I
understand Mr. Daniele’s desire for a return on investment, we are not talking about just “a bird,” and not just “an endangered species.” This is the bald eagle ... the very symbol of our country. Where’s the patriotic duty to respect and protect this priceless creature? The Fed’s 330-foot buffer is a joke, a compromise (deal?) between politicians and corporate interests. These birds require miles of untrampled space. There’s a reason why they are endangered: that space is getting destroyed 330 feet at a time. I’ve seen more bald eagles in short visits to Canada than I have in a lifetime in the USA. Maybe we’ll have to eventually swap our Eagles for Maple Leafs. BRIAN M.
On a report by the Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights indicating that white nationalist groups are connected to the Tea Party movement: “We’ve seen the signs
at Tea Party rallies, depicting President Obama as Hitler.” Really? As a rule? And you didn’t manage to notice all the “Bushitler” signage only a few years ago? “And we’ve listened to some of the extremist views that are unmistakably racist.” Really? And as a journalist you can’t manage to reference any of them or produce quotes from tea party speeches? Is it possible they might be imaginary projections? Fearmongering is at the very least unbecoming, and often a sign of desperation. CRAIG H.

Juan Williams lessons The Juan Williams saga has been analyzed to death, so forgive me for dragging it out again. But I keep mulling over a couple of subtexts to the story. One has to do with public radio — specifically, National Public Radio. NPR fired Williams, as the world now knows, because on Bill O’Reilly’s rant-fest on Fox News, he said he gets nervous on airplanes when he sees passengers wearing “Muslim garb.” NPR said his comments were opinion, not objective journalism, and they violated NPR’s standards. Is NPR trying to be too squeakyclean-objective? In the current New York Review of Books, Bill McKibben touches on that question. NPR’s Morning Edition and All Things Considered, he writes, “are the second- and third-most-popular radio programs in the country,” behind Rush Limbaugh’s. But that success, he says, “has tended to wash out some of the distinctiveness.” McKibben quotes former All Things Considered senior editor Brooke Gladstone: “As they become the primary news source for more and more Americans, public radio newsmagazines are restricting their own ability to move listeners. Like physicians in medieval times they seek to balance the four humors (so as not [to] be too choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic, or melancholy) by bloodletting. Public radio newsmagazines are looking a little pallid these days, because the passion has been drained off.” As a result, says McKibben, some listeners have sought other, livelier news sources. The same thing is happening on television, where some viewers have moved from straight-news programs to those with clear opinions: O’Reilly on the right, Jon Stewart on the left. NPR’s big shows like All Things Considered “suffer from some of the same constraints that plague other parts of elite American journalism,” McKibben writes. “They aim for a careful political balance — one academic study found their list of guests slightly to the right of The Washington Post and ‘approximately equal to those of Time, Newsweek, and US News and World Report.’” That, writes McKibben, is “not a particular interesting place to be.” Clearly, NPR — like PBS — is invaluable. And its supporters must fend off yet another attack from conservatives. But it will have to find a way to stay interesting while it strives for that nebulous thing called journalistic “objectivity.”
If we can’t talk about our own prejudice — if concern over political correctness mutes our own honesty — what then?” The other Williams issue: what we do about
prejudice in America. Best I can tell, Williams didn’t express a personal opinion. He stated a fact: he feels nervous when he’s on an airplane with people in Muslim dress. He’s not alone. Thirty-seven percent of the people responding to a recent Poll Position survey said they don’t feel comfortable on a plane “if several Muslim men are among passengers.” This is prejudice, springing from ignorance. But what do we do about it? We’ll have to do something, because our increasing diversity is a given. We can treat that diversity as a strength, a resource, something to celebrate. Or we can try to eradicate it, pushing those who are different to conform. Education, of course, is key. But if we can’t talk about our own prejudice — if concern over political correctness mutes our own honesty — what then? “If we are to solve any of the interpersonal problems we have in this country, including the fears that some non-Muslims have of Muslims, we must begin by being honest about our feelings,” a reader wrote to the New York Times recently. “NPR’s action reflects an attitude of political correctness that makes such honesty impossible….” “Sometimes a confession of prejudice is part of a larger reflection on the perils of prejudice,” wrote William Saletan on Slate. “Admitting such fears doesn’t make you a bigot,” wrote Saletan. “Sometimes, to work through your fears, you have to face them honestly. You have to think through the perils of acting on those fears. And you have to explain to others why they, too, should transcend their anxieties or resentments and treat people as individuals.” As CNN political commentator Donna Brazile said at the height of the Juan Williams controversy, “We should have this conversation.”

Brizard gets new contract
Following months of negotiations, the Rochester Board of Education reached an agreement on a new, three-year employment contract with Superintendent JeanClaude Brizard. Brizard will get an annual salary of $235,000, which is an increase of about $10,000 over his current contract. The new contract begins on January 2, 2011, and ends on June 30, 2014. The vote was 5 to 2, with board members Cynthia Elliott and Allen Williams voting no.
Downtown youth center planned A downtown recreation center for teenagers is in the early planning stages, says Heidi Zimmer-Meyer, president of the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation. Interest in the center is coming from downtown businesses, and stems from a series of public disturbances involving youth on East Main Street near the Liberty Pole.
Malgieri joins Hillside
Former Deputy Mayor Patty Malgieri will replace Sarah Amering as president of Hillside Work-Scholarship Connection. The program, founded by Robert and
Danny Wegman in the late 1980’s, is designed to help students stay in school and to learn workplace skills and responsibilities. Malgieri’s start date is January 7, 2011.
Richards appointed deputy mayor Mayor Bob Duffy appointed Corporation Counsel Tom Richards as the city’s deputy mayor. Richards replaces former Deputy Mayor Patty Malgieri, and his name has been raised as the city’s next mayor. Richards recently registered as a Democrat, but declined to say whether he wants the job. He assumed his new role in City Hall on Tuesday, November 2.

City, Water Authority in talks
The rumor mill seems to have gotten ahead of itself. Word was going around last week that City Council was about to sign off on an agreement to sell or transfer the city’s water system to the Monroe County Water Authority. Council never got any such proposal, but there is some truth to the rumors.
Fair elections fit
Monroe County Democratic Committee chair Joe Morelle told his party’s candidates to withdraw their participation in the Monroe County Fair Election Practices Committee. Morelle says the panels have been imbalanced and biased. Rochester League of Women Voters and Interfaith Alliance officials countered that the panels have been fair, that hearings have been conducted by the rules, and that all decisions have been unanimous and included at least one Democratic vote.

“I wouldn’t say it’s any closer than we were a couple of months ago,” Deputy Mayor Tom Richards says. “But I don’t want to be cute: it’s true.” The city and the Water Authority are discussing a deal, he says, for the city to transfer its system. The two parties haven’t settled on how that would happen, however: would the city lease the system to the Water Authority, for example, or sell it? The city and the Water Authority had a water-sharing agreement that lasted for decades. That long-term agreement expired in 2008, and officials have extended it on a yearly basis since. The city system’s age concerns some officials and that may be
an incentive to offload it. The possibility of a major line break is a big concern, officials say, and the city might not be financially prepared to fix it. The system is old, Richards says, but it’s been well-maintained. It will always require improvements and maintenance, he says. The talks initially drew scrutiny from environmentalists and Democratic county legislators, largely because of the city-owned land around Hemlock and Canadice Lakes. Much of the city’s water supply comes from Hemlock and Canadice. Environmentalists feared that if the Water Authority acquired continues on page 8

Betting on Boulder
The first thing that strikes you at Boulder Coffee’s Genesee Street location, besides the large console TV right by the entrance — old televisions are Boulder’s signature set pieces — is the size. You could drop a skateboard at the door, kick it up to speed, and ride all the way to the painting of the aged-but-steely Wonder Woman at the back of the coffee shop and you’d say you had a pretty good run. “Six-thousand square feet has always been more than I really needed,” says Boulder owner Lyjha Wilton. “Even if I had a really good day with a lot of people, it still felt slow because people can spread out so much.” Wilton says his shop was supposed to kick off the rejuvenation of the Brooks-PlymouthGenesee intersection when it opened two years ago, but that hasn’t happened. Proof, he says, is the seven empty storefronts across the street. Now he’s hoping that a move across Genesee Street into a smaller space will be the transformation trigger. “It’s been lonely for two years,” Wilton says. “So this is my way of trying to get the ball rolling again.” But the move is not sitting well with the 19th Ward Community Association. Boulder has quickly become an anchor, a welcome mat to the neighborhood, members say, and
City Hall and ARTWalk of Rochester, the nonprofit group that initiated the original trail of art and reconstruction along University Avenue, have ended their collaboration on the second phase of the project. The change, officials say, should not harm the multimillion dollar project. | ARTWalk would not comment on the split, but tensions between the involved parties have been building for months. A big concern for some early ARTWalk members was a decision to change the grassroots culture of ARTWalk, which emphasized the work of local artists. Disputes developed over direction and art selection. | “There’s been an attempt over a while to try to figure out the right role for ARTWalk of Rochester, the original organization,” says City Council Vice President Elaine Spaull. “The role and the extension project just don’t fit.” | ARTWalk Extension, originally referred to as ARTWalk 2, received federal funding to expand the art trail farther north on University to the Memorial Art Gallery, and along North Goodman Street to Village Gate. | The expansion also includes South Goodman Street to East Avenue and the museums. | ARTWalk is an outdoor museum that has received national attention, and is widely credited with spurring the redevelopment of the Neighborhood of the Arts.

the move could destroy that. They’re also concerned that public access to Boulder’s current building will be restricted, and they say that some community leaders pulled a fast one by allowing Boulder to make such a major change two years into a 10-year agreement. “What we’re losing, we think, is a lot more than what we’re going to be able to gain,” says J.B. Afoh-Manin, president of the association. The Boulder building is being purchased
by the University of Rochester Chabad House, an organization that caters to Jewish students. Activities include religious services, dinners, and social-justice events. The group currently meets in the Lattimore Road home of Rabbi Asher Yaras, who is co-director of Chabad House. continues on page 7

HEALTH CARE | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
City schools focus on healthy minds There are Student and Family Support Centers in 15 schools, where counseling is available. If a student’s needs exceed the care available at the center, a referral is made to an outside agency. Social workers provide a link between the schools, parents, and the community, says Carmen Garcia, community mental-health specialist with St. Joseph’s Neighborhood Center. Her organization is one of the district’s referral agencies. “These kids’ issues are really adult issues,” Garcia says. “It’s no longer, ‘I broke my curfew and I’m in trouble.’ It’s ‘mom and dad are fighting and I can’t go home.’ Teaching is not just about the A, B, C’s anymore.” Students know when something is so troubling at home that they should involve a teacher or counselor, says Audrey Cummings, the district’s director of social work. “They’re saying, ‘help me,’ but they don’t want anything life-altering to happen to their parents,” Cummings says. “That’s always their first question, ‘What’s going to happen to my parents?’”

Living in poverty takes an emotional toll on many city school students. It can be so debilitating that it threatens their education. The Rochester school district provided mental-health services to 17 percent of its students during the 2009-2010 school year, and it has developed an elaborate network of services to help these students. It’s a side of education in city schools not often seen or discussed, even though the need for mentalhealth services has grown exponentially over the last two decades. Consider the startling results of a 2007 survey of 4,200 city school students in grades 9 to 12. More than 25 percent of the students surveyed said they felt sad and hopeless for more than two consecutive weeks during the prior year. Ten percent say they had attempted suicide. And more than 40 percent said they had engaged in a physical altercation. Most city schools have a nurse on staff to handle everyday medical complaints — stomach ailments, headaches, and minor injuries. But the district also has seven school-based health centers which provide a comprehensive range of medical and mental-health services. The health centers and their staffs are provided by outside agencies, including the University of Rochester Medical Center and Rochester General Hospital. The health center at East High School looks like a typical doctor’s office: it has a waiting room with magazines spread across end tables, and a rack filled with dozens of wellness brochures. Providing medical care to East’s students is obviously an important part of the health center’s services, says Kim Urbach, a URMC nurse practitioner and director of the center. City
NOVEMBER 3-9, 2010
But the mental-health component is critical, she says. Approximately 30 percent of care provided at the center, Urbach says, is mental-health care. “There are some students that no matter what is happening to them, they come to school and leave it outside,” she says. “They’re dealing with it somehow. But a lot of the kids can’t do it, and they have trouble concentrating on their school work.” East’s health center has two URMC psychiatric nurses, Carla Blackmon and Mary Ellen Dennis, who provide a full range of mental-health support. That could mean helping a student through a crisis, or providing ongoing counseling. Students can walk in at their convenience, though some are referred by teachers and administrators. Many of the students they see, Dennis says, show symptoms of post traumatic stress. “If you ask any of these kids: have you ever seen a violent offense, or do you know someone who was a homicide victim? You’ll see the numbers are high,” she says. But it goes beyond that, Blackmon says. When people think of PTS, she says, they tend to think it’s related to a specific incident. “But there’s chronic stress for many of these students,” she says. “Poor housing, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and parents who may be unemployed — it’s ongoing for them.” Personal safety is another concern, Urbach says. Students often say they don’t feel safe in their neighborhoods, or getting to and from school. The success of school-based health centers is well-documented. Students
are 10 times more likely to seek help for substance abuse, show significant declines in depression, and are less likely to consider suicide when they have access to a school-

based health center, according to research from the NYS Coalition for School-based Primary Care. School-based health centers have been developed in districts across the country over the last decade. The Rochester school district plans to expand one of its existing centers and add two more. The key to the health centers’ success is proximity and easy access to care. Students don’t need special transportation because the health centers are located in the schools. And cost is not an issue. No one is turned away for lack of health insurance. Students don’t have to wait days or weeks for an appointment. They often have a pre-existing relationship with the health center nurses and trust them. And their privacy is protected: students can talk freely about whatever issues are bothering them. (A few exceptions exist where parents must be notified.) But the health centers are not the only way the district provides mental-health services to students. Officials also rely on a contingency of psychologists and psychiatrists, and there is at least one social worker in every school.
risen dramatically in recent years. A survey of the district’s principals showed that mentalhealth services for students is second only to classroom resources as a priority. Most parents are also extremely receptive, Cummings says. “I can count the parents on two fingers over 28 years who didn’t want me to see that their child received services,” she says. “We don’t have resistance from parents.” District officials are careful to ensure that mental-health services are not seen as the doorway to child protective services. “We’re trying to make emotional health as natural and as important as preventive medical care,” says Marjorie Lefler, coordinator of the district’s human service systems. But funding is always an issue, she says. Trying to target high-needs schools with the limited funding available has created a patchwork quilt of services that requires careful coordination, Lefler says. And since some of the mental-health services are tied to grants and outside agencies, there are limits to what the district can do. It’s the reason, she says, there isn’t a school-based health center in every school. “It always comes down to money,” Lefler says.
Betting on Boulder continues from page 5
“I believed for a very long time that this would be the perfect neighborhood for us to move to,” Yaras says. “We have to be as close as possible to the university.” The Boulder building is just a short distance from the footbridge that connects UR and the 19th Ward, whereas Yaras’s house is about a mile walk from UR. Chabad House caters to at least 400 to 500 students every year, Yaras says. And he says the presence of students will help rejuvenate the neighborhood. “There’s going to be a lot of traffic,” he says. “For the greater benefit of the community, I do believe that this move is a good move.” Although the public won’t have the same access to the building as they currently do, Yaras says, people will be able to reserve meeting rooms at Chabad House.
The sense you get is that Afoh-Manin and
other members of the 19th Ward Association feel betrayed by Wilton and by the Sector 4 Community Development Corporation, a neighborhood development group that sold the building to Wilton. A restriction in Wilton’s deed said that any change in the building’s use within 10 years required the CDC’s prior written approval. The CDC granted that approval at a recent meeting. The CDC’s vote does not reflect the will of the neighborhood, Afoh-Manin says, and Wilton’s move calls into question his commitment to the 19th Ward. “They say they’re going to move across the street,” Afoh-Manin says. “I have no reason to disbelieve them but for them going back on their word now.”
The community has invested emotionally and financially in the Boulder building and some neighbors say they feel like they were used. “I know how much sweat, money, and maybe some blood was poured into this building by the community in order to make it what it is,” Yaras says. “So I do understand that their knee-jerk reaction will be, ‘Well, we would love this place to stay a coffee shop.’” Wilton says he will sign a seven-year lease in the new building. Boulder will take five of the seven storefronts, and Wilton hopes to convince one of his tenants — Napa Wood Fired Pizzeria — to open a shop there. (It would be Napa’s second shop. The first is in the South Wedge.) Subway is also close to coming on board, says City Council member Dana Miller, president of the CDC board.
What’s the difference between a $50 haircut and a $20 haircut?
“We can potentially fill this retail space in one shot, and the building across the street won’t be vacant,” he says. “It’ll still be occupied, but in a different way that also brings more students into the neighborhood. It seems like a win-win for the community if that works.” Wilton says the move won’t happen until sometime next year. He’ll rent his current space while he renovates his new spot across the street, so he doesn’t anticipate closing for more than a couple of days. “My intentions are good,” Wilton says. “I’m not trying to do anything sneaky or to get anything over on anyone. I’m reinvesting in the neighborhood. I still think that my commitment is obvious.”

Water Authority continues from page 4
the surrounding land through a takeover of the city’s system, the land may be sold to developers. Environmentalists were concerned about the quality of the water supply. The state owns the land now, which has tamped down those fears. But environmentalists have other worries, too. The Webster water plant is being built on the Lake Ontario shore, not far from the Wayne County line. Water Authority officials have consistently argued that the plant is needed as back up should something happen with the Shoremont plant in Greece. It’s also needed to meet peak demand, they say. “What the Monroe County Water Authority has done is ensure a ready supply of water for areas east of Rochester,” says Peter Debes, vice president of the Rochester-area Sierra Club chapter. The new plant would let the Water Authority switch over parts of Monroe County that receive Hemlock-Canadice water to Lake Ontario water, he says. That would free up more HemlockCanadice water for towns south of Monroe which, in turn, could fuel development, he says. Environmentalists and Democrats in the County Legislature have other issues around a transfer. Past Water Authority scandals, including a former director who allegedly received unearned pay and benefits, indicate a lack of oversight, they say. They also worry about a management operation they see as a Republican patronage mill. Debes also finds it problematic that the city would unload a money-making asset. A sale may plug a budget gap for a year, he says, but the city loses the recurring income. Hugh Mitchell, a Sierra Club member, says there are some benefits to a transfer: the city would no longer have to pay for upkeep, for example. The authority is also efficient, he says, and has been regularly investing money in its reserves.

Dining well seasoned. The BLT — applewood smoked bacon, baby arugula, and tomato dressed with basil aioli on toasted brioche — tasted good, but it looked like it had been assembled by throwing the ingredients at the bread from across the kitchen. Leaves of arugula fell out of the sandwich on the way to the table, and the overcooked bacon hung over the edges of the bread. The flavor was fine. The presentation was sloppy. That’s where things stood two Thursdays

I picked Max at the Gallery for review this week in part because it was a sure thing: with any of the restaurants that bear the Max name you can be certain you’ll have a good, perhaps even great, experience. The brand, established by chef and restaurateur Tony Gullace with the opening of Max at Eastman Place in 2002, stands for good service and dependable quality. So when I took my family to the Memorial Art Gallery for brunch a couple Sundays back, I was anticipating something special. I’d read the menu in advance and had already placed my order in my mind before ever setting foot in the door: fried chicken and waffles for me ($15), a croque madame ($13) for my wife, and some fruit for my 5-year-old dining companion, who would inevitably end
up eating half of my entrée, too. It was just past noon when we sat down and our very friendly waitress told us that they kitchen was already down to its last order of fried chicken. I scooped it up quick. I want to tell you that brunch was great, but it wasn’t. While we waited for our entrees, a waiter delivered popovers to the table, placing them carefully on our bread plates with a pair of shiny tongs. Warm and a bit too crusty on the outside, the popovers were cold — almost frozen — inside, clearly not made fresh that morning. When it arrived, the chicken, too, seemed less than fresh, the coating soggy rather than crispy and much darker than I would have expected, as if it might have been dunked in the fryer again to freshen it up. The waffle underneath it was nearly flavorless. The only thing that saved it was the pepper and maple syrup-infused butter drizzled over the top. The worst offense, though, was the fresh fruit cup — a measly cup not even half full of under-ripe chunks of melon and pineapple for $4. On the other hand, the massive croque madame was worth every nickel. A traditional croque madame is not much more than a grilled ham and cheese sandwich topped with
a fried egg. Well done, it’s delightful. The chef at Max took his inspiration from another sandwich, the Monte Cristo, and put his ham and Gruyere sandwich on French toast before sliding the requisite egg on top. Although the menu claimed that the sandwich was topped with mornay sauce (cheese sauce, to those of us who don’t quote from Escoffier regularly), the chef instead finished the dish with a peppery, rich country gravy — a nice complement to the other ingredients. Brunch can be hit or miss, and I had high hopes for my second visit for lunch several days later. But here, too, things were uneven. The squash soup ($3 cup, $7 bowl) we ordered had a nice combination of flavors and just the right amount of ginger and spice, but had the consistency of pumpkin-pie filling. The French onion soup, one of the simplest soups to make well, was a disaster: cloyingly sweet, sitting in a syrupy dark-brown broth that tasted overwhelmingly of sherry, I couldn’t eat more than a few bites. We also ordered a BLT ($9) and a patty melt ($11). The melt was fine, if a bit overdone, well grilled on a good seeded rye bread. The housemade chips on the side were crunchy and
ago. The review was written up and ready to send in, when I heard from a friend of a friend that the restaurant had a new chef. Rather than trashing a restaurant based on old news, I decided to see what sort of difference a week and a new chef could make. I hadn’t been seated for more than a few minutes before I overheard a lady at the next table kvelling over the quality of the quiche, praising its custard-like texture and flavor. One of her companions was waxing lyrical about her salad. Around me, I noticed that the tenor of the dining room had changed from previous visits: people were smiling, the volume of conversation was a bit louder and more energetic than I’d heard it before. Something had clearly changed. In the interest of fairness, I ordered more or less the same meal I had had the previous Thursday: a BLT, and a cup of French onion soup. Claiming indecision, I also ordered a cup of the tempting-sounding curried lentil soup. The lentil soup arrived first, and it was every bit as good as I had hoped. French lentils, carrots, onion, celery, and a bit of turnip, along with bits of savory ham in a screamingly fresh stock seasoned with just enough curry to complement but not overwhelm the other ingredients. The onion soup was also delicious, sporting the right ratio of caramelized onions to salty, rich broth with just a hint of sherry on the finish. The multigrain crouton and a sprinkling of chopped chive for color were a nice touch, too. The real revelation, though, was the BLT, which looked like it had been assembled with a spirit level and carpenter’s square and then cut with a laser. It was almost too pretty to eat and stuffed full of perfectly cooked and selected ingredients — a thick layer of crisp but not overdone bacon, beautiful deep red tomatoes, golden-brown slices of toasted brioche. Then I noticed that the chips were still hot from the fryer. What a difference a week makes.
LOCAL MUSIC STUDIOS WEATHER— AND IN SOME CASES EMBRACE — THE RISE IN HOME RECORDING [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE | PHOTOS BY FRANK DE BLASE
There are those spots in a song — those elusive cracks between the notes, the intangible vortex where the magic resides — that ultimately make a good song great. Bands try to create that magic, and studios try to capture it. Yet there’s no map, no incantations, no clues, no pixie dust. Most fans tend to focus on the Rochester music scene from a live-show perspective. It’s one thing to assemble a band and bang out a show, it’s another to harness the energy and creativity and lay it to tape. Often up-andcoming bands don’t live long enough to make a record anyway. But for those that do survive the myriad quirks and hurdles that come with the pursuit of artistry and glory, there are plenty of recording studios in our midsized city just waiting to give them a shot at immortalizing their sound. Local recording studios offer bands comfort and guidance, as well as a host of modern or vintage technology. Many, if not all, are run by people passionate and personally invested in the recording field, and even though technology continues to shift and home studios have become more affordable and thus more prevalent, the professional recording studio will endure. That’s because the pursuit for magic persists. “It’s not like you can go to the store and buy
a can of recording magic,” says Chuck Irving, guitarist for the local band SLT, which recently recorded its new album, “Gone Dead Gone,” at Holt Studios in Mt. Morris. You can, however, go to the electronics store and, for a nominal stack of greenbacks, create your own
home studio with programs like Pro Tools and Garage Band. Does this mean the big adios to the big studio as we know it? Is this technology the professional studio’s nemesis? ACME Recording Company’s Steve McNally doesn’t think so. Actually, he’s all for it. “I think it’s great,” McNally says. “You can’t compete with it. We have to embrace it.” Yet McNally still believes in the superiority of the pro studio. Bands can woodshed with the home gear, but when it comes to the final product, you stick with the people who know what they’re doing. Projects that start on some band member’s laptop eventually wind up at his studio. “First people do stuff at home,” he says. “Then they bring it here.” Robert Blackburn owns Blackdog Recording at 120 East Avenue. He saw this rise in home recording coming. “I saw it when I was working at the studio at The House of Guitars,” says Blackburn. “It was half-inch and D-88s, and then I saw Pro Tools IV come in. Once I saw that I said, ‘That’s the future of music,’ and I knew it was going to grow exponentially from there, meaning that it would eventually be in your home.” All it would take, he figured, was for the price to go down and the software to get better. But Blackburn never worried home studios would ever replace professional studios. “I think it has definitely changed the music business,” he says. “But I must say, I think that 1 percent of everything that’s homegrown is really amazing, and 99 percent of it is less than that. It’s a way to express yourself and experiment
being an engineer at home. And when you want to do it right, you go into a real studio, where there are real pre-amps and real engineers and real speakers and a real room and a real sound — and then you make a record.” The obvious beneficiaries of the upswing in
home-recording technology are the bands, although it has also led to some unexpected complications. And that’s where the pros have to step in and add a helping hand. “If you look at [home recording] as a pre-production stage, yes, I think it’s helpful,” says Dave Anderson of Saxon Studios on East Main Street. “But I also know it’s very difficult and time consuming for people to record their own material. It’s a distraction from the creative process; it can be counterproductive.” “In some respects it has hurt business,” says Tony Gross, founder and owner of GFI Productions, a studio located in Ontario. “But in other respects it has made things really, really better. We have young bands coming in with better templates of songs.” It all goes back to the magic, and as ACME’s McNally stresses, that starts with the performance. “A lot of the bands are already planning how they’re going to fix [a song] in the mix,” he says. “They’re already planning on using the technology, they’re not so concerned with getting those great performances. I’ve always felt [recording] is 90 percent psychological, 10 percent technical. And you’ve got to try and explain to them to get a good performance, then we’ll worry about the voodoo later.” When McNally was coming up, the studio itself was a magical place. “When I was a kid, and first went into recording studio, it was like going to church,” he says. “I mean, you took your shoes off, you didn’t touch anything. Today, not so much. There are more and more
studios. I don’t think the reverence is there.” According to Blackdog’s Blackburn, the recording process starts even before a band picks ups its instruments. “Everybody thinks they’re always ready to record,” Blackburn says. “And they’re absolutely certain they’re gonna cut it right the first time. And I think if they looked at the history of recording, they would see that it’s completely the opposite. The Stones would spend weeks in the studio and it would suck, suck, suck — and then all of a sudden an album would be there. I try to mention the word ‘pre-production’ to people and they run for the hills, all of them.” The search for that ineffable recording mojo
is one of the chief factors a band considers when choosing a studio. All the studio heads we spoke to said that the No. 1 attribute a studio can have over and above the latest and greatest gear or the coolest vintage gadgets is a comfortable atmosphere for the artists, and honesty. One of the benefits of recording in a smaller city like Rochester is that its studios are all run by locals, most of them career musicians themselves who got into recording out of a love of music and an interest in pursuing the magic for themselves. Tony Gross founded GFI Productions in 1981 when he was signed to A&M Records. “I was spending all this money in other studios,” he says. “So I started a home studio. Music was a part of me. It’s all I ever wanted to do. I didn’t want to go to college, I didn’t want to do anything. I wanted to be a rock star.” GFI has worked with and helped develop countless acts from Rochester, and others from around the globe. Artists like Jeff Buckley, Johnny Thunders, Mick Taylor, Trey Anastasio, and Gilby Clarke have all darkened GFI’s doors. Tony Gross (left) founded GFI Productions (right) in Ontario in 1981, when he was signed to A&M Records. “Music was a part of me. It’s all I ever wanted to do,” he says.

They need to knock out a few walls [ review ] by frank de blase
Friday night was one of those perfect rock ’n’ roll nights. Rochester legends SLT and English punk-rock legend Hugh Cornwell shared the Lovin’ Cup stage for an unforgettable show. Having just released “Gone Dead Gone” — essentially its first album, if you consider the new line-up — SLT put on an incredibly tight, zero-frills set. The sound was mixed perfectly (MDG, my man, take a bow), which is critical for a band that has so much riding on singer Matt Sabo’s clever, lyrical deadpan. I’ve always known guitarist Phil Marshall is capable of anything with the guitar, and it was particularly cool to see him cut extra-loose, seething and shredding with no brakes. The group essentially highlighted the new album in its entirety except for one classic, “Beautiful You,” from the Luke Warm days. You can still feel the warmth after all these years. I love this band. Cornwell followed and pounded out two amazing sets of music. Coming on full-throttle in a trio setting — featuring
Clem Burke on drums and Stephen Bishop on bass — Cornwell played in his signature textural-riff guitar style. The man uses effects as emphasis and mood, and when he cops to plain ol’ twang it’s vicious and unavoidable. The band played to a crowd that looked like another Scorgie’s reunion. The second set was The Stranglers’ 1977 “Rattus Norvegicus” album played front to back in its entirety. Tunes like “Peaches” and “Hanging Around” had the Lovin’ Cup overflowing with bobbing heads. You needed a shoehorn to get into Abilene Saturday night to hear Bobby Henrie and The Goners. It looked like “Caligula” in there as I had kind of forgotten it was Halloween eve. The band looked and sounded sharp — and nobody can pull off a Paul Burlison thump ’n’ twang fill better than Henrie — but there was no room to dance. They need to knock out a few walls in that joint. Keep booking bands like the Goners in there, and that’s just what’s going to happen.

Music Brass workout Clay Jenkins Wednesday, November 17 Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs St. 8 p.m. | $10 (free with UR ID) | 274-1100, esm.rochester.edu [ PROFILE ] BY RON NETSKY
A sign hanging in Clay Jenkins’ office at the Eastman School of Music reads: “Trumpet is not like an athletic event, it is an athletic event.” The sign was a gift from a student, but the words are Jenkins’. “I run, I eat right — it’s a challenge,” says Jenkins. “I always tell my students: being healthy helps your trumpet playing, and being a trumpet player helps your health. It is very physical and very athletic.”
Jenkins recently returned from New Zealand, where he spent 10 days performing the Miles Davis/Gil Evans treatment of “Porgy and Bess.” There are not too many endurance tests for a trumpet player more difficult than this late-1950’s masterwork. “I really enjoy it,” says Jenkins. “It wasn’t written to play live so it’s really challenging. You’ve got to be in shape to do those things because it’s like an hour-long concerto. It’s on your mouth constantly the last 20 minutes. There are no breaks. If you get tired you’re sunk.” Jenkins is putting together another challenging repertoire for his upcoming concert November 17 at Kilbourn Hall. He’ll be joined by Eastman colleagues Harold Danko on piano, Rich Thompson on drums, and Jeff Campbell on bass. The group will also
boast a special guest, one of the hottest tenor saxophonists in New York, Tony Malaby. Jenkins was born and raised in Lubbock,
Texas, the birthplace of Buddy Holly, but he doesn’t have much to say about the city’s most famous musician. “I never knew 2 cents about Buddy Holly; I was not so much into rock and roll,” he says. In fact, Jenkins’ family might as well have lived on a different musical planet, the one where every man plays a trumpet. His dad, a professor of industrial engineering at Texas Tech University, played trumpet in swing bands. During World War II, he played in the McDonnell Douglas band with Buddy Rich. His older brother also played trumpet. And one day, when Jenkins was 11, “my dad didn’t ask me, he just said, ‘This is the day we get you a cornet.’” (A cornet is a more child-friendly member of the trumpet family.) Growing up he listened to albums by Al Hirt, Doc Severinsen, and Louis Armstrong. Later, when horn bands like Blood Sweat & Tears came along, he gravitated toward them. Early on his dad took him to see the Stan Kenton Orchestra; a decade later he would be playing in it. Jenkins attended North Texas State University. Now called University of North Texas, it’s the largest music school in the country. He was in good company. Keyboard wizard Lyle Mays, bassist Mark Johnson, and drummer Steve Houghton were among his classmates. “I was a late bloomer,” says Jenkins. “They sounded amazing in the mid-1970’s.” By then he was listening to hard-core jazz: John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, and Clifford Brown. After graduating, Jenkins was

freelancing in the Dallas area when he heard that trumpeter Tim Hagans had left Kenton’s band. He was offered a chair in the trumpet section and he stayed for two years. “He let us play,” says Jenkins. “He wasn’t a great soloist, so he’d let young guys play. The music was very Wagnerian, it wasn’t the swingin’est band.”
Life on the road in the late 1970’s wasn’t easy, but Jenkins, fresh out of school, loved it. “I lapped it up. Every day was Friday night. We’d go out January 10 and play until Christmas. The money was terrible but hotels were cheap,” he says. Jenkins was just getting started in the world of legendary big bands. Next came a stint with the Harry James Orchestra. “He was a great leader and a great player, but it was very nostalgic,” says Jenkins. “It wasn’t really swing, it was dance music. We played the same tunes every night and he played the same solos. I never played any solos. He was an old-school leader; he’d stare at you if you missed a note.” Restless, Jenkins left to join Buddy Rich, a bandleader with perhaps the most notorious reputation in jazz. “Buddy would scream and yell but I liked Buddy a lot. It was challenging,” he says. Aside from one black player in Rich’s band, those bands were all white. His next experience in the Count Basie Orchestra was different. “I was one of the few white guys in Basie’s band but they treated me with the utmost respect.” By 1983, when he joined, Basie had died. Among the band’s subsequent leaders was one Jenkins was thrilled to work with, Thad Jones. “Aside from Miles he was my favorite trumpet player.” Jenkins quit the band to raise a family in the mid-1980’s, but he soon found himself at the first rehearsal of the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra. He was in the trumpet section with a legend, Snooky Young. Jenkins and Young (now 91 years old) are still in the section together. He tours internationally with the band and values the fact that Eastman is flexible and supportive. “They’re so great about treating us like artists,” Jenkins says. Despite his teaching schedule, Jenkins is
busier than ever. In addition to his work with the orchestra he has collaborated on projects with his wife, a dancer, he plays with several faculty groups at Eastman and he runs a record company, Jazz Compass, with three other musicians. Last year, while on sabbatical, he recorded three CDs, including an organ project, “Four,” with Reggie Thomas; a quintet record with Joe LaBarbera; and his own album, “The Good Sign,” which will be released shortly after his upcoming Kilbourn concert. “There’s so much negative in the world,” says Jenkins. “We’ve got to look for good signs.”

ACOUSTIC SWING | My Sweet Patootie
As Tanglefoot alumni, guitar fingerpicker Terry Young and fiddler Sandra Swannell cut their teeth with that revered Canadian roots-music band. With their own duo, My Sweet Patootie, Young and Swannell have explored the boundaries of swing, producing a melding of big band rhythms and country blues stylings into what they affectionately call “hayseed jazz.” My Sweet Patootie is just plain fun, using humor-laced lyrics and a passion for the personalities they author to let listeners literally swing their blues away. Satirical and lively, the duo mines the deep musical ethos of small-town Ontario province. My Sweet Patootie performs Saturday, November 6, 7 p.m. as part of the Heartland at Home Concert series. The show is at a private residence, so reservations are required. $15. 328-3103, heartlandconcerts.org. — BY RYAN WHIRTY Sore Thumb Radio Live Broadcast w/Jeff Cosco.

CLASSICAL | Score!
Back in the day live music used to accompany the films screened in the space now known as Little 1. Go back in time this Sunday with a performance by the Rochester Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet and a movie produced by the Eastman Kodak Company in 1926. The event will start at 1 pm with an hour of movie music, including a tribute to MGM and “The Tango Lesson.” The program will end with a rare public screening of “The Flute of Krishna.” Eastman-Kodak captured the dance created by Martha Graham in the 1920’s, performed by five of her students at the Eastman School of Music. The movie represents one of the earliest uses of color in film. The RPO Woodwind Quintet has arranged music for this screening as inspired by the film. The event will be a time capsule to the Rochester performing arts scene of the 1920’s, and is a fundraiser to benefit the Little.

JAZZ | Carl Ludwig Hübsch
Tuba player Carl Ludwig Hübsch’s Longrun Development of the Universe can sound positively melodic when it wants to. But Hübsch and his cohorts, Wolter Wierbos on trombone and Matthias Schubert on saxophone, often prefer to veer off into outer space, producing sounds that their instruments didn’t know they could make. All of these men are top practitioners of the European experimental music tradition, rooted in equal shares of the American (Sun Ra) and European (Stockhausen) avant garde. If there were sounds at the development of the universe, these are probably not too far off. Carl Ludwig Hübsch’s Longrun Development of the Universe plays Tuesday, November 9, 8 p.m. at the Bop Shop Atrium, 274 N Goodman St. $15. 271-3354, bopshop.com. — BY RON NETSKY Karaoke.

Eastman Professor Patrick Macey recently cracked the code of a baffling Renaissance motet; Musica Spei will perform the piece at the Early Music Festival this Friday. PHOTO BY PALOMA cAPANNA
Finding the solution in silence 10th Annual Rochester Early Music Festival Friday, November 5 St. Anne Church, 1600 Mt. Hope Ave. 7:30 p.m. | $5-$15 | MusicaSpei.org [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
It sounds like an episode of “History Detectives” gone classical. Professor Patrick Macey, chair of the musicology department at the Eastman School of Music, comes upon a song by 16th Century French composer Jean Mouton with notes of vocal parts that seem to collide into dissonance. It takes Macey three years to solve the composer’s riddle to create a harmonious interpretation of the score, and he does so just in time to include the interpretation as part of the upcoming edition of the annual Rochester Early Music Festival, taking place this week at St. Anne Church. Macey’s original assignment involved the work of French composer Josquin des Prez (c. 1450-1521). The early 1500’s was the high Renaissance period, a time of kings and queens, of marriages for political empires, of popes who conferred blessings. 20 City november 3-9, 2010
It was a time of King Francis I and Pope Leo X. And from 1502 to 1520, another French composer, Jean Mouton (c. 14591522) was in the midst of it all, working under the patronage of the king and under an honorary appointment at the Vatican under the pope. In his work on pieces by Josquin, Macey came upon the “Antequam comedam” of Mouton. “I noticed that the tenor part in the second half of the motet did not fit well with the other four voices, and it created several prominent dissonances with them,” Macey says. His curiosity was piqued, and he returned to study the Mouton when he completed his work on Josquin. “Mouton was described by a contemporary that ‘his melody flows in a supple thread’ — facili fluentem file cantum edebat,” Macey says, referencing a quote he read and translated from a 1547 text, Heinrich Glarean’s “Dodekachordon,” a treasured volume from the collection at the ESM Sibley Music Library. Macey figured that because Mouton was known for his smooth, flowing melodies, the dissonances in the score of the “Antequam comedam” simply didn’t make sense. Macey explains that in its day, the motet was a complex kind of work. A song might be taken from peasants in the countryside
and blended with a Latin text, perhaps inspired by a Bible passage. The motet was a type of chamber music, often played after super or sung in the smaller chapels of the nobility; it was more intimate than a performance for masses in cathedrals. The basic structure of the “Antequam comedam” motet is a traditional French song “Je ris et si ay la lerme” (translated by Macey from the old French: “I laugh, yet I have a tear in my eye”), sung by a single tenor, while the sopranos, altos, bass, and additional tenors sing different Latin passages from the biblical story of Job. The riddle came in the instruction by Mouton to the singers to “be foolish when time or context demand.” The instruction was reinforced by the lyrics, which include, “Have I not kept silence?” — a passage wherein Job is speaking to God. The answer to the riddle of the dissonances was to not sing the score as literally printed upon the page, but, instead, to not sing the last word — or note — of each line. The result was a beautiful, flowing melody and a piece completely consistent with the works of Mouton, Macey says. Macey took his discovery to Stephen
Marcus, music director of Musica Spei, a choral group formed in 1995 to focus
on sacred, unaccompanied choral masterworks of the 15th, 16th, and early 17th centuries. Musica Spei is also responsible for the annual Rochester Early Music Festival, now in its 10th year. Marcus was thrilled with Macey’s discovery. “Musica Spei has performed a lot of music with mathematical puzzles, backward canons, hidden composers’ names — Renaissance music is full of these,” Marcus says. “But we had never seen anything like this before.” The Early Music Festival itself brings together a number of groups and soloists from the early music community in Rochester. This year’s festival will include Baroquen Bones, Eastman Collegium Baroque Orchestra, and Eastman Collegium Viol Consort. Also on the program will be vocal and instrumental soloists, including Colleen Liggett (soprano), John A. Morabito (organ), Sophia Gibbs Kim (flute), with Bonnie Choi (harpsichord) and Deborah Fox (baroque guitar). The festival will be presented in “prism” format, with the musicians surrounding and standing among the audience, performing from the balcony, side chapels, and central aisle of the church. The program will feature works from composers ranging from Johann Sebastian Bach and Antonio Vivaldi to William Byrd and Sixt Dietrich. Dr. Joseph Finetti, chair of this year’s festival, described the festival venue of St. Anne Church as “lovely for this kind of music — warm, live, subtle, and very gentle for the sounds of early instruments.” Finetti is passionate about early music, and says of music in general, “What we hear today is not just something that sprang from rock and roll 20 years ago, or from somebody’s brain or fingers on the keyboard just last night. It’s all built. It’s a grand pyramid. When you hear something today, it was based on this grand tradition that started many centuries ago.” After nearly five centuries, Mouton’s “Antequam comedam” will find its modern voice through Musica Spei at the upcoming festival. For Macey, there is a certain joy that the piece has been properly revived. At a rehearsal of Musica Spei on October 25, Macey, for the first time, heard Mouton’s piece performed with live singers. “It was great,” said Macey, a broad smile coming across his face. “It sounded just great.”

THEATER | Festival of New Theatre
If you’re looking for something new on stage, this week Geva Theatre Center launches its Festival of New Theatre 2010. Running Thursday, November 4, through Sunday, November 14, the series will feature a mix of new works by local and national playwrights, some of them still in the development process. “…And So it Goes,” by Aaron Posner, is a play adapted from the earlier stories of Kurt Vonnegut, known for his darkly comedic science-fiction novels. The piece runs Thursday, November 4, and Saturday, November 6, at 7 p.m. Popular local drag performer Kasha Davis (pictured) will dish out lessons in life, love, and looking fabulous in “An Evening with Mrs. Kasha Davis, International Celebrity Housewife,” by Ed Popil. The show runs Friday, November 5, at 7 p.m. A twisted story of an ambitious journalist scoring the interview of a lifetime with serial killer Arthur Shawcross, Lori Marra’s “Mystic Castle” will take the stage Wednesday, November 10, at 7 p.m. The plays will be presented in an informal, script-in-hand format, and followed by a discussion with the playwright. All take place at the Nextstage at Geva Theatre Center (75 Woodbury Blvd). Tickets are free, but reservations are required.

hinting at the capacity for creation present in all of nature. Almost the inverse of this work is “Lower Depths,” a three-dimensional square, its interior receding inward toward the wall, each smaller square is slightly cocked to create a spiral staircase effect. Sculpted and painted forms emerge from the center. “I love form, space, and color with equal intensity,” Brandwein says. “The two pieces titled ‘Portal’ demonstrate this best. In the past I have called related pieces ‘Yoni,’ referring to Hindu images of a cosmic vulva/womb.” “Red Portal” and “Blue Portal” are fraternal twin shield-like shapes, glowingly painted with crackling, fiery energy emitting from central objects of a distorted square and an oval. Deliberately yoni-shaped is “Crucible,” where the physical universe is forged. Hot colors on the rippled surface peak toward the center, which drops off into negative space, in which float variously sized spheres. The oval form minimizes at the bottom, and wire trails whip-like to the ground. Viewers of Brandwein’s wall-mounted work
“One Man Band” by Paul Brandwein, part of “Garden of Desire” now at Gilded Square. PHOTO PROVIDED
Nice niche “Garden of Desire” By Paul Brandwein Through November 12 Gilded Square Picture Framing and Gallery, 714 University Ave. 461-2808, gildedsquare.com. Tuesday-Friday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. | Free [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
Look around: there’s genitalia everywhere. No, really. Nature makes good use of the well-designed forms because they’re useful, and the architecture of the world is literally rife with those very familiar, blush-inducing forms. Many folk are conditioned to think that if you see penises and vaginae (LOL) in innocent objects, you’re suffering from a dirty, perv-y, mind, but you’re really just seeing the lusty world for what it is: a place of desire and generation. Paul Brandwein’s sexy and sacred sculptures are the kind of work that draws the viewer in aesthetically and holds them conceptually. His most recent exhibition, up at Gilded Square Picture Framing and Gallery, is entitled “Garden of Desire,” and 24 City november 3-9, 2010
is full of his characteristically colorful, bold, and beautiful ceramic and mixed-media sculptures that smoothly blend the sacred and the so-called profane, and nod to the associated concepts in both. Brandwein treats the sexual forms as sexual forms, “but there is something deeper to the work than mere arousal,” says the artist in his provided statement. He operates with a higher focus on those forms as archetypes, considering and celebrating such universal issues in natural experience as metamorphosis, desire for and fear of union, mystery and the pursuit of it, revelation, and joy. His works resemble hearts, tongues, genitalia, and more, but refer to micro- and macro-cosmic patterns found throughout the physical world. In his statement, the artist calls this small,
12-piece body of work “a union of disparate elements finding connection,” and cites the explosive “One Man Band” as an example of challenging himself to make the elements work together. The piece is an earth-colored and textured ziggurat of stacked squares. The earthen piece is bursting with bright, playful objects resembling tree branches or antlers, tongues, tails, bubbles, clouds, and more,
will birth a million spiraling associations. The pale, round fullness of the heartshaped “Ripening” is divided, peach-like, by a central, low slit, which is rimmed in bubblegum pink and lined with little nubs like magnified fruit seeds or taste buds. In the texture-heavy, rainbow-colored “Overreaching,” Brandwein shows off his colorist skills by pairing them just-so to create a subtle glowing effect, which gives way to a darkened crevasse. Below, a heavy, thick tail hangs down, ringed by more objects. “Fractal Heart” is a tongue-like form, with the lower tip shades lighter than the rest, reaching out slightly toward the viewer, giving the odd feeling of sentience. The texture coating the surface births bubbles, which birth tinier bubbles, and so on into presumed symmetrical infinity, as it goes with fractals. The work entitled “Bubbling Over” is mounted on a plaque-background with colors to contrast its 3D shape. A crimsonveined heart sprouts wiry vessels capped with bubbles, and a central top cluster of bubbles speaks of visible joy. Brandwein’s 12th work — currently in the window of the shop — is nearly undetectable in the mist of all the color bursting from the walls, due to its absence of hue. “Original Nature” is a small plank of gessoed wood with 20 tiny ceramic mounds mounted in a grid, each heavily textured, but bereft of color. The spirally objects resemble pods and clumps of dirt, raw materials of nature, and as studies, hold the quiet mystery of future works of sensuality, joy, and trepidation.

KIDS EVENT | National Toy Hall of Fame Induction
The National Museum of Play grew from Margaret Woodbury Strong’s fascination with the dolls and trinkets that she began collecting during her world travels as a child. The museum is home to the National Toy Hall of Fame, which currently holds 44 toys, including the famous Mr. Potato Head, Candyland, and Play-Doh. This Thursday, November 4, at 10:30 a.m. the hall will induct two more toys into its ranks. Nominees for 2010 include the dollhouse, Pogo Stick, Magic 8 Ball, chess, Lite Brite, playing cards, Cabbage Patch Kids and more. A weekend-long celebration will follow the induction, with activities including the world’s largest Etch A Sketch, a working replica of the toy more than 8’ tall with a more than 6’-wide screen created by the Ohio Art Company. With it, Tim George, nicknamed “Mr. Etch A Sketch” for his meticulous creations, will also be there to show of his techniques through Monday, November 8. The National Museum of Play is located at 1 Manhattan Square. Admission costs $9-$11; all weekend events are included in general admissions fee.

SPECIAL EVENT | Great Bowls of Fire
I get two distinct urges when the first cold snap of the season hits us. First, I enthusiastically unpack my sweaters, and then I very impatiently await my mother’s first batch of chili. Folks with a talent for making that cozy, delicious meal tend to keep their recipe cards close to their vests, and are a bit on the competitive side: chili is one of the most popular competition dishes. Fulfill your seasonal epicurean fantasies by attending the 7th Annual Great Bowls of Fire Chili Cookoff, and support the Genesee Center for the Arts and Education while you’re at it. The tasting and competition takes place Saturday, November 6, 4:30-8:30 p.m., at the Genesee Center (713 Monroe Ave.), and costs $20 per person or $60 for a family of four (two adults, two kids under age 12). The chili will be provided by local restaurants, with live tunes by Tin Can Set. As a bonus, the beautiful handmade pottery bowl you’ll be given for your sampling is yours to take home. Tickets are available at area Wegmans, at the door of the event, and online at geneseearts.com.

In the prison of the self [ REVIEW ] by George Grella
“Stone” (R), directed by John Curran Now playing
In its opening sequence “Stone” establishes an inexplicable strangeness and a permanent ambiguity that permeate all the subsequent action. A young man watches a golf match on a small black-and-white television, signaling a past in the 1950’s or 1960’s, ignoring the wife who puts a drink in his hand and takes their daughter upstairs for a nap. When she comes down and tells him she’s leaving him, he goes to the daughter’s room and threatens to throw
the sleeping child out the window, an act that defines the marriage for the rest of the film. When the picture reopens in the present day, the husband, Jack Mabry (Robert De Niro), a parole officer about to retire, and his wife Madylyn (Frances Conroy), still together, live without any hint of communication. They apparently spend most of their spare time attending church, reading the Bible, and sitting side-by-side on their front porch, drinking steadily and silently while regarding the unexciting landscape of rural Michigan. At one point, late in the movie, without any provocation, the usually vague Madylyn calmly decants a gush of gross obscenities at her impassive husband, suggesting the accumulation of hatred over the decades of their disastrous marriage. Jack’s only real communication occurs on his job as a parole officer in a prison, where he encounters the most dynamic character in the film, a prisoner who calls himself Stone (Edward Norton). Desperate for release after eight years of a sentence for
Robert De Niro and Edward Norton in “Stone.” PHOTO COURTESY OVERTURE FILMS
arson, the agitated and defiant prisoner challenges Jack in a number of ways, sparring with him verbally, sneering at the notion that Jack may be any less guilty of a crime. In a further effort to win release, Stone also encourages his sexually voracious wife Lucetta (Milla Jovovich) to seduce Jack, a ploy that succeeds but also predictably ruins what Jack may regard as his life. With that small cast of characters and a relatively simple plot, the picture moves through a series of two-person episodes, as if it were initially conceived as a play. The script adds a further dimension of meaning with themes far more important than the personal and emotional connections among its people, straying into some curious considerations of faith. The director constantly emphasizes the presence of religion in Jack’s life — attending church, reading the Bible, and constantly listening to an endless stream of dull, smug sermons on a religious radio station. While Jack meets with his minister and in effect confesses a lack of any belief, his prisoner searches for solace and ultimately discovers something like a spiritual awakening in reading a sort of neo-Buddhist tract. Following the descriptions in his reading, he seeks and finds a kind of minor mystical epiphany that changes his attitude toward his situation, his crime, even his wife; the experience dampens his anger and brings him a modicum of peace exceeding Jack’s unacknowledged desperation.

Money matters [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
“Inside Job” (PG-13), written and directed by Charles Ferguson Opens Friday
The picture’s odd, muted, and mostly undeveloped meditation on spirituality and belief conflicts strangely with the configuration and behavior of its characters. The people really never make much sense and their actions and motivations remain mostly unclear. Though full of silences, it rarely achieves a convincing visual statement of its emotional and intellectual content. In a number of intercut but regrettably pointless scenes — Madylyn playing poker with a bunch of heavy drinking friends, Jack stopping his car to hit a golf ball into a farm field, for example — “Stone” displays the several disconnections of its people, all pursuing different lives, but never really achieves anything like a meaningful explanation of their behavior. After all the relationships disintegrate in one or another disaster, at his retirement party a drunken Jack pours out a series of obscenities that mirror Madylyn’s earlier insults, but the action and the speech require some kind of motivation within the context of the character and the particular action. Despite the predictably competent performances of Robert De Niro and Edward Norton, who exemplify the best in two distinct generations of movie actors, “Stone” never catches fire or throws off the kind of sparks most viewers should expect. The puzzling characters, the cryptic subtexts, the episodic narrative, the obscure hints of religious concern combine to produce a fragmented and unsatisfying work, a film that never really makes sense of its subjects.
You know, I’ve really tried to wrap my mind around both the art and science of economics, but anything beyond P.J. O’Rourke just makes me sleepy. For those who don’t have much money, the topic can seem dry and abstract, and that’s what made comprehension so tough for a lot of people when the economy went belly-up in the fall of 2008. The typically hyperbolic media reported on the AIG collapse and the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy using unfathomable numbers in the billions, and though everyone looked concerned, it just sounded like more upper-class hubris gone awry. Wealthy hands would be slapped and executive heads would roll, but John Q. American would still have to get up tomorrow and go to work. Well, turns out the opposite was true; no one actually got punished except the working class, and Charles Ferguson’s riveting documentary “Inside Job” breaks down how the economic crisis happened, who was responsible, who tried to prevent

it, and, most blood-boilingly, who could have but didn’t. Ferguson, you may recall, is the scholar-turned-filmmaker who tackled another hot-button issue with 2007’s “No End In Sight,” which exposed the occupation of Iraq as a creeping rash of mismanagement from the top on down. But if you’re geared up for more partisan finger-pointing, you can forget it: “Inside Job” makes it clear that blame for the recession transcends political affiliations, as our elected officials display an inexcusable ignorance by putting their trust in the wrong people over and over again. Ferguson patiently builds his case with charts, news footage, and interviews, tracing our current quagmire to the Reagan administration’s kickstarting of financial deregulation, which essentially allowed investors to take risks with your money. We stop off for the savings and loan debacle of the 80’s, 1998’s overtly illegal merger of Citibank and Travelers, and the internet boom/bust of the early 21st century. We hear sickening tales of corporate fraud, bribery, and money laundering. All of these combined to create a ticking time-bomb of insatiable greed that found investors making dicey decisions with your money and insuring themselves against your losses, with no repercussions of their own. This would eventually lead to the government’s $700 billion bailout package of 2008, because the faltering companies were simply too big to let fail. But the exploding bubble wasn’t a complete shock to everyone; plenty of economists did the math and figured out that, as in any heist, someone would eventually be left holding the bag. Interviewee Raghuram Rajan, formerly of the International Monetary Fund, recalls being jeered as a Luddite by former treasury secretary (and current Obama advisor) Larry Summers in September of 2005 after presenting a paper suggesting that this pervasive practice of risk without penalty could lead to a “catastrophic meltdown.”
And former Governor Eliot Spitzer appears on the brink of a Clinton-like rise from the ashes as he relives his attorney general days taking aim at Wall Street corruption, though he politely demurs from passing judgment on their, shall we say, illegal vices. What’s not surprising is who declined to be interviewed for “Inside Job”; former and current power players like Federal Reserve chairs Greenspan and Bernanke; treasury secretaries Summers, Rubin, Paulson, and Geithner; as well as all of the top financial executives, whose platinum parachutes stand in stark contrast to their customers’ freefall of debt. These men — and they are mostly men — could have answered for their decisions and perhaps provided some balance to the discussion. There are several interviewees, like Columbia dean Glenn Hubbard and professor Frederic Mishkin, who are put in the position to defend the financial industry’s stubborn lack of foresight, but their reactions veer from blank to defensive to aggressive, and Ferguson’s cutaway edits as they’re confronted with conflicts of interest or failures to disclose do them no favors. An agitating call-to-arms like “Inside Job” naturally causes us to wonder what we can do to ensure this financial havoc doesn’t happen again. The answer? Besides controlling your debt, not a damn thing. You did everything right, entrusting your faith and savings to knowledgeable, paid professionals who essentially worked for white-collar crime syndicates. None of them will likely ever be prosecuted. As a matter of fact, a great many of the people responsible now have cushy academic appointments, meaning the next generation is learning from their questionable wisdom. And the man who was elected on a mandate of change continues to be counseled by the very same individuals who constructed the failed system. Your only defense is to educate yourself, and “Inside Job” ought to be required viewing.
DON’T LOOK BACK Thursday, Nov. 4, 8 p.m.
In 1965, Bob Dylan was touring England, and Subterranean Homesick Blues was climbing the U.K. charts. D.A. Pennebaker’s cinema verite classic captures Dylan’s performances with stunning clarity and force. Equally fascinating are off-stage events — interviews, rehearsals, and wranglings — in which Dylan displays his now-iconic persona. (D.A. Pennebaker, US 1967, 96 min.)

2562 Highland Avenue In the early 20th century, the most popular American residential architectural styles were based on historical precedent, creatively recycling traditional European and early American models. Here in Rochester, neighborhoods of the era feature many houses loosely patterned after English Tudor estates and American Colonial townhouses. Every now and then, homeowners looked farther afield for design inspiration. Spain, France, and Italy supplied design inspiration for some owners and architects. The original owners and designer of the house at 2562 Highland Avenue, meanwhile, had a very specific and uncommon source in mind: the Swiss chalet. The use of Swiss design motifs, while unusual, was not unprecedented. The 19th-century architect and author Andrew Jackson Downing, whose pattern books were very influential in shaping American architectural taste, introduced the style in this country in his 1850 book, The Architecture of Country Houses, where he noted that the style would fit best “in a bold and mountainous country.” Highland Avenue is hardly mountainous, but the setting is bold in its own way. Running from Mount Hope Avenue on the west to Clover Street on the east, this street is like an architectural museum, dotted with rare and eye-catching gems. The house at 2562 Highland in Brighton rubs shoulders with handsome Tudor and Colonial Revival houses, and is across the street from a house that resembles a miniature French chateau. Historic maps indicate that the house was built around 1920. Distinctive Swiss features
include the board-and-batten wood siding, the jerkinhead roof, and the flat, cut-out patterned balustrade on the second-story balcony. Also of note are the house’s many diamond-paned leaded-glass windows, which are in fine condition. Even the matching two-car garage has leaded-glass windows! The interior of the house displays a characteristic 1920s layout, with a side hall, wide living room, and sun-drenched sunroom. Narrow-plank oak floors are in excellent condition, and original tile floors remain in the sunroom and vestibule. The sunroom is particularly appealing, with banks of leadedglass windows overlooking a sheltered side yard. The large eat-in kitchen and pantry offer plenty of storage and workspace. On the second floor are four generously sized bedrooms, two of which have double doors opening to the front balcony. The large basement offers finished space that could be a large office or playroom, as well as unfinished space for storage, laundry, and perhaps a workshop. The back yard is well designed for private outdoor living, with an attractive patio and small lawn. Highland Avenue, which is fairly busy farther west, is a quiet, residential street here, offering a peaceful and private setting. Measuring 2,661 square feet, the house is offered at $254,500.

Modern Mummies: New York City artist Sally Davies offered in October the latest evidence of how unattractive today’s fast foods are to bacteria and maggots. Davies bought a McDonald’s Happy Meal in April, has photographed it daily, and has noted periodically the lack even of the slightest sign of decomposition. Her dog, who circled restlessly nearby for the first two days the vittles were out, since then has ignored it. (Several bloggers, and filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, have made discoveries similar to Davies’.) Food scientists “credited” a heavy use (though likely still within FDA guidelines) of the preservative sodium propionate but also the predominance of fat and lack of moisture and nutrients -- all of which contribute to merely shrinking and hardening the burger and fries.
Compelling Explanations — Maybe Just Safekeeping It for a Friend:
Raymond Roberts, 25, was arrested in Manatee County, Fla., in September after an ordinary traffic stop turned up a strong smell of marijuana. At deputies’ behest, Roberts removed a baggie of marijuana from his buttocks, but when the deputies saw another plastic bag right behind it (containing a white substance believed to be cocaine), Roberts said, “The weed is (mine),” but “(t)he white stuff is not ....” — Firefighter Richard Gawlik Jr. was terminated by Allentown, Pa., in August for abusing sick leave after he posted his daily golf scores on a public website during three days in which he had called off from work. Allentown firefighters’ contract allows them up to four consecutive days’ sick leave without a doctor’s note, and given their shift schedule of four days on, four days off,
a four-day, undocumented sick call effectively means a 12-day holiday -- a pattern that describes 60 percent of all firefighter “sick” days, according to an analysis by the Allentown Morning Call. (Gawlik’s union president said the union would appeal and that “playing golf was well within the guidelines of (Gawlik’s illness).”) — Woody Will Smith, 33, was convicted in September of murdering his wife after a jury in Dayton, Ky., “deliberated” about 90 minutes before rejecting his defense of caffeine intoxication. Smith had claimed that his daily intake of sodas, energy drinks and diet pills had made him temporarily insane when he strangled his two-timing wife with an extension cord in 2009, and made him again not responsible when he confessed the crime to police. (In May 2010, a judge in Pullman, Wash., ordered a hit-and-run driver to treatment instead of jail, based on the driver’s “caffeine psychosis.” Some doctors believe the condition can kick in with as little as 400 mg of caffeine daily -- an amount that, given America’s coffee consumption, potentially portends a skyhigh murder rate.) — An Iowa administrative law judge ruled in September that former police officer William Bowker of Fort Madison deserved worker’s compensation even though he had not been “laid off” but rather fired -- for having an affair with the wife of the chief of police. Although the city Civil Service Commission had denied him coverage (based in part on other derelictions, such as sleeping and drinking on duty and refusing to attend a class on search warrants), the judge ruled that Bowker’s dismissal seemed too much like improper retaliation for the affair.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 35 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Romantic opportunities aren’t likely to be gratifying this week. Frustration and limitation will be due to added responsibilities and problems that crop up with people you thought you had something in common with. Single is good for now. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): An old lover will show interest if you reconnect. Keep what transpires out in the open to avoid any sort of repercussions later on. Honesty will play a major role in how long a relationship will last. Romantic good fortune is apparent.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Being overanxious will be your downfall when it comes to love. If you push too hard or come on too strong, you will end up attracting the wrong kind of attention. With a laid back, laissez faire attitude, you will be the one who is pursued. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Socialize and put your emphasis on being entertained as well as entertaining. You will promote not only love but the promise of commitment. Change of status and direction are apparent as a result of a love connection.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Join in and be a participant but don’t make any promises that may tie you to one person or another. It’s best to play it cool and enjoy everyone’s company equally until you are in a better position to choose one particular person to be with. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get into the swing of things. Make plans, travel and, most of all, get involved in any activities that interest you. Love and romance are highlighted this week. All you have to do is be receptive and make yourself readily available.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stop thinking about someone you loved once upon a time and do something about it, if you still feel the same. Pick up the phone or send an email and, before you know it, you will be in a position to reconnect or to let go once and for all. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Follow your intuition regarding a relationship. A change of pace will help you relax and realize what you want and need from a personal partnership. A change in status will also bring about unlimited opportunities in other areas of life.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A change in your personal life will leave you feeling down and left out. Look at the positive not the negative aspect of what’s unfolding and you will know what to do and when. Lovers come and go but friends are there forever. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Remember your past and call upon the experience you have had with love relationships. There is a strong attraction building between you and someone you can’t stop thinking about. Don’t be afraid to make your move. Take action.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stick to the things you need to take care of and take a pass on love or anyone coming on to you. You need to figure out what you want out of life before you decide to get mixed up with someone who may or may not fit into your plans. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Talk is cheap but can also lead to all sorts of opportunities when it comes to future plans, commitment, and building a life with someone special. Love is in the stars and connecting with someone who shares common interests is a plus.
