On whether we should require readers to give their names when they post comments on our website:
I understand the need for some channel for posting without a name. However, it seems to me that only a very small percentage of anonymous posters have a valid need to protect their identity. The vast majority of anonymous posting seems to be connected to vitriol, negativity, and hurtful or hyper-critical venting. Anonymous posters can be hiding political and racial agendas or control issues. Also, anonymity allows one person to appear to have many voices and thus an unequal power of voice in the community. At its worst, anonymity allows a corporate campaign to be disguised as a grassroots movement, and that is toxic to democracy. Here’s my suggestion: Those who post must provide an identity. Those who fear reprisal or professional harm can submit their posting to City and ask City to post it anonymously. City makes the call: either accept and post without a name because of the quality of the material or let the submitter know they can post, but must use a name that City can verify. DOUGLAS MACINTYRE
Knowing who said something may add context to the statement, but the “who” should not supersede the “what” in our decision on whether to accept or reject the point being made. I think we need to be careful in attributing 2 CITY

a rationale to someone’s decision on associating his/ her name with an opinion. Fear and courage, risk and benefit are very personal conditions. I won’t judge the content on the basis of the person’s choice on disclosing her/his identity. I am disturbed by the increase in vitriolic commentary, but I don’t see an absolute correlation between tone and anonymity. I’ve seen logical and respectful comments made by unnamed contributors, and I have seen people willing to add their names to hateful and hurtful statements. GREG
One time I stated my opposition in the D&C to duck hunting in the ponds in Greece. Many angry hunters replied, and I started to get a new magazine in the mail about every day. They were signing me up for subscriptions. Now I only write letters that say next to nothing. (NAME WITHHELD)
Give me anonymity or give me death! The Democrat and Chronicle did away with anonymous comments and only allows them from those with Facebook accounts. The result was pretty much the end of all comments. Many people can’t use their own names because of possible repercussions with friends and family and at their workplace. Editors will need to monitor comments, but it’s a small price to pay for stimulating and meaningful discussion. MRS. SILENCE DOGOOD
When someone won’t attach their name to their public comments, I tend to discount the comments as somehow less than genuine. However, if someone gives an argument that is well though out and constructed, I think the idea will stand on its own, regardless of who the author might be.
My real worry is all of the anonymous money pouring into our political system. It seems clear that our system has already been seriously corrupted by people with large sums of money, and it alarms me that so few people seem to care. Most people seem to ignore the harm being done to other people. But by the time they wake up, when it affects them personally, it may be too late to salvage our democracy. DAN WALSH
In the past you have commented that you do not know why we are able to find candidates for office given the harsh economic, severe social issues, etc. I agree, especially in the increasingly harsh online media environment that has emerged. I am frequently critical of politicians, but I decided I ethically need to attach my name to my comments. I feel badly for politicians who must face not only necessary questioning of their work, but also the nefarious nature of anonymous comments, sometimes even from political opponents or their operatives. This anonymity gives politicians no legitimate way to respond. What a discouragement to smart, talented people to step forward to work long hours for next to nothing to improve our city. I cannot support anonymous culture, whether it is from your readers or from the Koch brothers, because it is hurtful to our society, to government, and to our political processes. LARRY CHAMPOUX
Commenting anonymously, or with a pseudonym, is an ancient tradition that will outlive City, and maybe even the internet. Anyone challenging gender, race, religious, or economic-power status quos may do it at great personal cost. In a different time or place, they could have even been in danger of their lives for speaking
truth to power. City and its comment readers will never know if a pseudonym is being used, so the paper won’t be able to enforce the naming requirement. If a comment has some truth to it, it shouldn’t matter how it is signed, and probably shouldn’t be ignored. LOUISE WU
The problems at East High
Go back to neighborhood schools. It sounds simplistic, and admittedly I’m far from an education expert, but the so-called “experts” are and have been failing for a very long time. Get back to basics. Kids need a solid foundation (i.e. the ability to read and write) before we can expect anything else of them. J
I graduated from East in ’05, and it was hard, but I had parents that cared. Maybe RCSD should make more parents accountable for their child’s education. My youngest sister is currently at East, and she is supposed to graduate next year. She is an honors student. Someone explain what is going to happen with the students like my little sister. The problem here isn’t the school; it’s the students that don’t want to go to school and put in the effort. If you shift these kids to other schools, those schools are going to end up like East. NESSA LABOY
What about giving the school financial resources to provide adequate, updated materials for students? I graduated from East in ‘97. I had to get into honors classes to get teachers who wanted to teach and students who wanted to learn. I had classes with not enough desks, dilapidated class materials, outdated computers. The school looks like a prison. Also, many students do not know what it means to work for a reward, and the school offers few incentives
to work towards a longer, rewarding education. Another fact: Students are told to not go into local businesses during school hours because a few bad apples have ruined the school’s reputation. Right away they are being told no one wants them around; they are treated as worthless people, so why should they come to school? Instead of giving up on the school, give it financial resources for updated, technologically current tools, incentives and reasons to achieve higher education, and a physically attractive place to learn, and just maybe student attendance will increase and teacher morale will improve. WENDY MOON
O’Brien and the Dems
On State Senator Ted O’Brien’s recent votes: Ted
is representing a larger group of voters and constituents with wildly different views. So he’s doing his job. Undocumented workers and their families are a much bigger issue for the state and its agricultural backbone than people want to talk about. Their children get educated in the K-12 years, but there are barriers due to immigration status that prevents access to college loans and filling out FAFSA legally. But conservatives claim they want folks willing to work hard and fix their own problems... which is part of the DREAM act... go parse that one.
Why does “investing” always mean that taxpayers foot the bill so someone can get something for free? How about letting convicts get a college degree but requiring them to pay back the cost of it after they are released from prison, much like a lawabiding college graduate has to pay back a student loan?

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
Good news and cynicism Several friends have been on my case about focusing on Rochester’s problems so often. Can’t I, they ask, write about some of the good things that are happening here? And certainly there are plenty of good things to write about. Last month, at the Rochester Downtown Development Corporation’s “Changing Fortunes” program, a panel of business and college leaders discussed new, and very positive, developments in downtown Rochester. I was impressed not only by the projects they mentioned but also by the context in which they’re taking place. Rochester has lost so many manufacturing jobs that it makes you weak to think about it. A couple of days later, the D&C’s Pat Burke speculated that Kodak’s new CEO may be charged with selling the company (well, selling what’s left of it). Kodak’s Rochester employment, Burke reminded us, has shrunk from a high of more than 60,000 to about 2300. We’re getting new businesses, but we don’t have big industry coming in. Our new-business employment growth is measured in the dozens, not the thousands. Most Rochester businesses employ fewer than 100 people. So that’s the context. The panelists at the RDDC event seemed neither grim and defeated nor foolishly optimistic and boosterish. There was no talk about Big Projects, no news with a wow factor. Just a discussion of new, small businesses starting, new job-training efforts: incremental steps, but definitely incremental steps forward. And while many of us complain that we’re losing young adults to other regions, we certainly haven’t lost them all. You can see the evidence in the crowds at downtown and eastside restaurants and bars. And you can see it in the growing number of young adults living in the growing number of downtown apartments. We’re not seeing an explosion of new businesses and downtown population, by any means. But the growth is real. And it seems to be sustainable. So there are indeed good things happening – in our population, in the local economy (assuming that winter doesn’t last forever), even in education. I’m cautiously optimistic about Mayor Lovely Warren’s Early Education Commission, which will document the need for stronger pre-kindergarten programs in Rochester and seek money to fund them. The obstacles are big, and it’s hard to predict whether Warren will be successful, but the potential is certainly there. But then there’s the context. Journalists like good news as much as anybody, but news is more than an announcement of a new program that sounds good. We won’t know whether that new

Journalists deal in negative developments so often that we risk becoming overly cynical. But we can’t ignore the context.” program really represents good news until we find out whether it works. Journalists deal in negative developments so often that we risk becoming overly cynical. I have to fight that in myself. But we can’t ignore the context. And last week, context reared its head again, in another Community Report Card from ACT Rochester. Here are excerpts from our article on that report: “The region’s child poverty rate, 19 percent, is below the state and national rates. But the child poverty rate in the City of Rochester is an absurd 47 percent. The city numbers are even higher for African American and Hispanic children.” “Twenty-nine percent of third graders in the region passed the state’s new reading test, below the state’s 31 percent average. The passing rate in the City of Rochester was an abysmal 6 percent.” “The City of Rochester had the lowest median income in the region, $30,708, with the highest rate of poverty, 32 percent.” So that’s what we’re up against. I have a lot of hope for the positive developments we keep hearing about. And one of the most positive things about all of this is that despite the odds, literally thousands of people are trying to solve the problems. We’re a small city, with a lot of regional resources. And the challenges shouldn’t be impossible to overcome. The question, I guess, is whether we can pull those resources together effectively enough to lick our problems. And then, sadly, both history and my cynicism pop up.

Rochester gets small aid boost
Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren asked Governor Andrew Cuomo for $100 million for a downtown performing arts center. She didn’t get it. But Warren did get an extra $6 million for the city, bringing the amount of aid Rochester will get via the new state budget to $94 million. The City of Rochester has a $28 million budget gap to close. Warren is expected to present a budget in May.
ACT Rochester’s yearly report card provided yet another bleak picture of life for some in the City of Rochester. Highlights: the city’s child poverty rate is an absurd 47 percent. The numbers are even higher for African American and Hispanic children. And Rochester has the lowest median income in the region, $30,708, with the highest rate of poverty, 32 percent.
New York State’s public schools are the most racially segregated in the nation, according to a report from the Civil Rights Project at UCLA.
The report, which spans from 1989 to 2010, says the problem has been heightened by the state’s real estate, zoning, and health care policies.
Obamacare enrollment ends
Open enrollment for the Affordable Care Act ended with millions of last-minute calls and visits to the government’s federal enrollment site, www. HeathCare.gov. The Obama administration says the call center handled 2.5 million calls last weekend alone. The number of enrollees has also climbed, igniting a debate over the data.
The Rochester City School District will receive $10.8 million from the state to expand its half-day prekindergarten program into a full-day program. The funds will allow Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas to offer enrollment to most of the city’s 4 year olds, which is one of Vargas’s main strategies to improve student achievement over the long term.

NEIGHBORHOODS | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
Explore the Neighborhood of the Arts Here’s a chance for all of you closet super sleuths to activate your inner Sherlock while nabbing some prizes, too. On Friday, May 2, the business association of the Neighborhood of the Arts will launch a summer-long scavenger hunt called Explore NOTA. QR codes, which are similar to bar codes, will be displayed in participating businesses throughout the neighborhood. You’ll scan the code with your smart phone to earn points. Completing a series of visits will earn you a virtual badge. Each month has a theme. June is the garden challenge, for example, so you’ll earn
a badge if you visit all participating NOTA gardens and scan the codes. “The goal is to get people to explore the neighborhood and get to know the businesses,” says Meg Colombo, a spokesperson for the Memorial Art Gallery. Colombo is an advisor to the Explore NOTA event. Other badge themes are music, public art, cultural, foodie, and event. The event badge will be earned by finding and scanning codes at NOTA events, such as the Clothesline Arts Festival. The monthly challenges make it possible for short-term players, including people visiting the city, to
participate, Colombo says. You can scan all the public art QR codes, for example, in a single day. A virtual leaderboard will show the most active players based on the number of scans and badges earned. The standings will be displayed in real time, Colombo says, “so you can actually watch people move around the board.” The event ends in October. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded at the NOTA street art event. More information should be available soon on the Explore NOTA Facebook page, https://www. facebook.com/ExploreNOTA

The organizations do not object to RED-Rochester withdrawing water from the lake, or to the amount of water the company wants. But they do have some big picture concerns about whether the permit application and DEC review process do enough to stress efficient water use.
ENVIRONMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Eastman park permit could set precedent Water is crucial to life, and to the rebirth of Eastman Business Park. The park has a self-contained, specialized utilities system that depends on large quantities of water from Lake Ontario. RED-Rochester, which owns the park’s utility system, has applied for a state permit to withdraw up to 54 million gallons of lake water per day to keep those utilities running. Previously, the park’s utility system didn’t need a water withdrawal permit. But in 2011, a law passed that broadly regulates and restricts water withdrawals throughout New York. The purpose is to fulfill New York’s commitment under a multi-state Great Lakes water conservation and protection pact. RED-Rochester’s application will be a test case of sorts. The company is one of the first industrial users to apply for a water withdrawal permit, and the application will set a precedent for future reviews, says Larry Levine, senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council of New York. Last Friday, a group of 18 state and local environmental and advocacy groups submitted a letter to the State Department of Environmental Conservation regarding REDRochester’s application. NRDC took the lead on drafting the comments, though other signers include the state Sierra Club chapter and the Rochester Raging Grannies.

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
East’s end? When a school is failing as badly as East High, the surrounding community seems to go through many of the same emotional transitions as a person dealing with a life-threatening illness. Many of those raw emotions were evident at a meeting at East last week, where about 100 students, parents, staff, and residents reacted to the State Education Department’s command to fix the school. Some students and parents said they’re shocked by the news, and many students vigorously defended their teachers. They said their success in school is a direct result of their teachers’ hard work and caring. East’s librarian said she’s angry because she doesn’t have the resources to help the school’s nearly 1,800 students. “If we’re trying to support reading and writing, why are we taking away [positions]?” she said. “We’re in a crisis mode.” And many of the parents and students said they’re angry at the parents who don’t engage with East. “There’s only so much staff can do without parental support,” said Frances Drumgoole, a home school assistant. The SED has given district officials until the end of April to come up with a plan for East. The options are: turn it over to SUNY, close the school and open another one, convert East to a charter, or partner with some other entity to run the school.

Queer careers Riley Folds says he had the same questions that many LGBTQ people have when he began thinking about his career. “My personal life is my personal life,” he says. “Why does my personal life matter to my work life? But our work [lives] and our personal lives collide every day, so it does matter.” Folds is the founder of Out for Work, a nonprofit organization that prepares LGBTQ college students for life in the work force. He’s also the author of “Your Queer Career: The Ultimate Guide for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Job Seekers.” Nazareth College’s career services department will host “Your Queer Career,” a talk by Folds, at 6 p.m. on Monday, April 7, in the Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public. Folds says he spends much of his time talking with students about the transition from college to the job market. “Academia provides such a comfortable environment and these students are working hard and taking on leadership roles, and they’re doing all of these amazing [social activist] things,” he says. “But then they have to go out into the working world and they have to move to places like Kansas or Texas, places where there isn’t this kind of support and protection [for LGBTQ employees].” Almost everyone in today’s economy could use some type of career counseling, Folds says. “But specifically for LGBTQ individuals there are clearly different challenges that enter the process that heterosexual individuals never really have to consider,” he says. Research shows that sexual orientation

and gender identity have no correlation to how individuals perform at work. But reports over the last 20 years show “high levels of discrimination against lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender people at work,” according to multiple studies by the UCLA School of Law. One study says that as many as one in four LGBT employees experienced discrimination in the workplace. And about one-third were not out at work due to fear and intimidation, the study says. Employment for transgender individuals is especially dire. The Human Rights Campaign says that in surveys between 1996 and 2006, as many as 57 percent of transgender respondents said they experienced
We’re not saying you should be running in with your rainbow flag every day.” RI L EY F OL DS discrimination both in getting jobs and while employed. And the Employment Discrimination Act has stalled in Congress. ENDA would prohibit employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. Though the problem has eased somewhat in the last few years, Folds says, LGBTQ individuals can still be fired, or denied employment or a promotion in 29 states. Most of the questions that students have are about resumes and interviews, Folds says. For example, “What does it mean to be out on a resume or in an interview?” Or, “How out should I be?” Folds has an exercise where students are asked, “Would you target LGBTQ [friendly] companies?” “Would you target them, but it wouldn’t be a deal breaker?” “Or would you target any organization, no matter what their policies are?” Folds says he typically finds that most students prefer the first two choices. And most are embarking on their first interviews for internships or entry level positions, he says, so they’re already stressed. Adding the LGBTQ component ratchets their anxiety even higher, he says. “We’re not saying you should disclose, ‘Yes, I’m bisexual’ or ‘Yes, I’m a lesbian,’” Folds says. “We’re saying, ‘These are my skills, qualities, and experiences that I’ve had via this community, and they’re valuable
skill sets for your organization.’” He says that some students worry about vocational stereotypes, such as gay men being perceived as more suitable for feminine jobs and lesbians being perceived as more suitable for masculine ones. Those concerns may have historical roots. LGBTQ historians have found that gays often pursued some vocations, such as floral design and hairdressing, out of a necessity to be self-employed. Joel Simkhai, founder and CEO of the online gay social network Grindr said as much in a recent Inc.com interview. Before starting Grindr, Simkhai said he questioned whether his sexual orientation might prevent him from being successful in the corporate world.

Riley Folds tells students that being gay is only one part of a person’s identity, and that it doesn’t define them. PROVIDED PHOTO
Folds says he urges students not to limit
their career choices because he’s seen a shift in corporate culture during the last 10 years. “Out for Work is supported by about 40 Fortune 500 companies and they come to us to find ways to recruit LGBTQ specific candidates as a component of their diversity recruitment model,” Folds says. “They’re looking for different ways to attract talent other than just going to the college career fairs every year. They want to know how else they can target this community for the jobs they have.” Growth industries like aerospace, health care, and the STEM-related fields are looking for this diverse talent, he says. And some of the push to attract LGBTQ workers comes from employees within these companies. “They want people to know that this is an inclusive place to work, that you can bring your whole self to work, and this is a top organization for LGBTQ individuals,” he says.
Students also have to do their homework, Folds says. For example, when working with students who are pursuing careers in education, he says, they should know if the state or municipality provides protections for LGBTQ individuals. “What is the district’s nondiscrimination policy?” Folds says. “Are there any LGBTQ groups within the system? Can you network with other individuals within that school to find out what the climate is for someone who identifies as LGBTQ?” Though Folds says he doesn’t tell students they can’t be closeted, he does say that it may be getting harder due to social media. And being closeted carries its own message. “We’re not saying you should be running in with your rainbow flag every day,” he says. “But just being yourself and taking your whole self to work benefits both the employee and the employer.”

Paleo, but no dinosaur burgers Roam Café 260 PARK AVE. 360-4165, ROAMCAFE.COM MONDAY-SATURDAY 11:30 A.M.-11 P.M. (BAR OPEN UNTIL MIDNIGHT), SUNDAY 11 A.M.-10 P.M. (BAR OPEN UNTIL 11 P.M.) [ REVIEW ] BY LAURA REBECCA KENYON
Following a diet is, in general, difficult. The science regarding what we “should” eat is confusing. Remember when eggs were bad for us? Or when carbs were a good thing? A recent study suggested that saturated fats, named as a risk factor for heart disease for more than 20 years, might actually be benign. Still, diet regimes capture attention and fantasy, and I am not immune. I have been on my share of diets (or, more accurately: the same one, over and over again). By far, the largest challenge has been eating out. Where can I find something that I like that’s on the plan? If I go out with friends, are there items on the menu they’ll like, too? Park Avenue’s Roam Café provides one solution to this quandary, particularly if you are on the paleo diet. In case you aren’t familiar, paleo posits that we should be eating like our Paleolithic ancestors, consuming only seafood, meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc. No dairy, no cereal grains, no refined sugars. Shortly after Roam switched owners in the
summer of 2011 — you may remember it as a café serving up both gelato and motorcycles — paleo-friendly items started popping up on the menu. “It’s been well received,” says co-owner Marie Nye, who runs the restaurant with Drew Nye and Maurice Kusminsky. “There’s a strong presence of paleo-conscious people in Rochester.” The menu is not entirely paleo friendly, but there are enough options to make ordering simple for those who are on the diet — all paleo dishes on the menu are clearly marked. Most of the paleo items aren’t unusual, either. The ribeye steak ($20, includes two sides) is just what you’d expect, well marbled, and flavorful. The steak we ordered was just under an inch in thickness, and this thinness may be the reason why it came cooked to medium when it had been ordered medium-rare. The flavor held up nonetheless. Topping it with not-paleo-friendly blue cheese ($1) added salt and a pleasing funk. The stockyard sirloin steak ($18, includes two sides) is thicker, standing two inches tall. Tender and bloody (the way it was ordered), it oozed juices on to the plate and never became dry. These juices are tasty when mingling with the (non-paleo) garlic parmesan fries (included with the steak, or $3.50 as a side). On their own, the fries have a light garlic and parmesan flavor, crisp
texture, and light brown color. They’re good, but so much better when they’ve soaked up the steak’s jus. The thick bone-in pork chop ($17, includes two sides) is rubbed with espresso, grilled, and then topped with a dried cherry reduction. The coffee flavor isn’t pronounced; if anything, it adds charred notes to the dish. The cherry reduction resembles a wine-tomato sauce; it adds a hint of sweetness and fruit, but if you didn’t know it was made from cherries, it would be hard to identify it as such. Both the sweetpotato mash and sautéed garlic spinach (included with the entrée, or $3.50 each) are paleo sides. The sweet potatoes are roughly mashed, with fibers still visible. They’re sweet but not overly so, nor creamy — there’s no added sugar or dairy fat creating the richness you might normally expect. The spinach is mildly garlicky. Like kale, it’s one of those vegetable that lends itself to feeling smug about healthy eating. The tomato and cucumber salad (included with an entrée, or $3.50 as a side) was bland, a poor echo of the vitality and freshness the vegetables yield at the height of summer. Zucchini cakes ($7) are one of two paleo items on the appetizer menu (the other is steamed clams, served in a white-wine-lemon broth for $10). Like miniature, browned
omelets or servings of egg foo young, the cakes are spongy and eggy, the bits of green zucchini vividly present. The menu lists these as being topped with caramelized onions and crispy prosciutto. The onions, however, hadn’t been fully caramelized — they were pale brown and mellow, not mildly sweet. The prosciutto was difficult to see or taste. The best items Roam Café has to offer, however, are not on anyone’s proscribed diet. The espresso martini ($8) blends vanilla vodka with Baileys Irish Cream and espresso. It is lip-smackingly tasty, the kind of drink that disappears quickly without asserting its power until it’s too late. This drink not only won best cocktail in the 2014 Battledish Rochester competition, it won that category in the 2014 national Battledish competition. (Full-disclosure: I served as a guest judge in Battledish Rochester.) Lastly, let’s hope the sweet-and-sour duckwing appetizer ($10) moves from a special to a regular menu item. Three to an order, meaty drumsticks about four inches long are fried and then tossed in a tangy sauce. The mildly acidic sauce plays off the meat’s richness. It’s a refined take on the Buffalo wing, and a nice way to enjoy duck. If we’re lucky, the next nutritional study will proclaim the health benefits of fried food and alcohol. Until then, you can eat virtuously — or not — at Roam Café. rochestercitynewspaper.com

FRIDAY, APRIL 4 PEARL NIGHTCLUB, 349 EAST AVE. 8 P.M. | $20 | 325-5660, FACEBOOK.COM/PEARLNIGHTCLUBROCHESTER [ DJ/ELECTRONIC ] Two serious EDM artists are coming
to the ROC this week: Downlink and Dieselboy. Downlink is known as one of the best bass DJs around, not only for his live sets, but also for his work as a producer. Dieselboy is just as big in the EDM scene, and he’s been taking his brand of bassand-drum music around the world since the 90’s. The two are megastars on their own. Just imagine how good a show featuring the both of them will be. Hoogs will also take a spin on the turntables. — BY TREVOR LEWIS
Heart THURSDAY, APRIL 3 AUDITORIUM THEATRE, 885 E. MAIN ST. 7:30 P.M. | $60.60-$130 | RBTL.ORG [ ROCK ] Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson — the core of the band Heart — have been heralded as two of the most legendary female performers in rock history. But the fact is, the Wilsons are two of the most legendary performers in rock regardless of their gender. Heart first broke out in the 1970’s with searing tracks like “Barracuda,” “Crazy On You,” and “Magic Man.” The band had an impressive second act in the late 80’s with a string of pop-rock hits, including “What About Love,” “Alone,” and “These Dreams.” Nancy’s roaring guitar work and Ann’s golden pipes are impossible to deny. — BY ERIC REZSNYAK

Lily Virginia FRIDAY, APRIL 4 BOULDER COFFEE CO., 100 ALEXANDER ST. 8 P.M. | FREE | BOULDERCOFFEE.INFO [ POP ] New York-based artist Lily Virginia names her
genre of music as being “her own brand of alternative folk-pop.” She draws influences from fellow folk and pop artists such as Bon Iver, Fleetwood Mac, and Florence + The Machine, embracing the vulnerability and confessional nature of their music. Virginia’s music is raw and honest, brought to life through her rich, full vocals and creative, intelligent guitar playing. — BY LEAH CREARY
X Ambassadors TUESDAY, APRIL 8 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVE. 8 P.M. | $10-$12 | BUGJAR.COM [ ALT-ROCK ] X Ambassadors hails from Ithaca, but this regional band is on the brink of breaking big. The group has already toured with major acts like Imagine Dragons, Jimmy Eat World, and Panic At the Disco. It’s also featured on “Comfortable,” a great, slinky track off DJ group The Knocks’ latest release (a personal favorite of your humble writer). X Ambassadors’ new EP, “The Reason,” is up on Spotify and well worth checking out. The band has an assured, laid-back sound that blends an alt-rock vibe with some electronic elements. Don’t be surprised if you start hearing its tracks on Top 40 radio in the not-sodistant future. X Ambassadors plays with Parade of Lights and The Demos. — BY ERIC REZSNYAK
Is it possible to be profoundly melancholy without the splash of tears? Goodbye Ronnie’s “Between Two Fires” is a moody affair with an affinity for atmosphere and glimmering optimism that covers up the bruises. That’s partially a result of the sonic dichotomy between the ragged male vocals of Ronnie Lickers sparring with the coquettish trill of his female counterpart, Hope Kallback. The whole CD doesn’t wallow exclusively in the minor tranquility. Songs like “True, True, True” kick into boogie territory without losing their cavernous soul. Goodbye Ronnie performs a CD-release show Saturday, April 5, 8 p.m. at the Firehouse Saloon. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

It’s simply amazing how, no matter how much gets layered onto Auld Lang Syne’s sound, it becomes more and more minimal. On this 10song album, the band swirls above a simple chaos like you’d hear on something that has Joe Henry’s hands on it. It’s downright epic with its angelic chorus of voices slithering in and out and around each other, and intertwining with things like French horn (I swore I heard French horn in there). It’s ultimately a mellow-down affair with brief sojourns into some rural giddy-up. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

e r i WOOD w
Five local guitar makers discuss their craft [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
It would seem that even a well-made guitar has no soul; it is merely wood and wire. But in music’s endless pursuit to get what is in the musician’s heart into the listener’s ear, the guitar is an important vessel, or at the very least a bridge in this quest. It’s true that the instrument is only as effective in this pursuit as its player, but there are guitar builders — technically called luthiers — who pour their own hearts and souls into the creation of these instruments, these tools. And whereas the musician wrestles with the perfunctory theory of sharps and flats and notes and scales, the luthier struggles to balance aesthetic beauty with required functionality. The instrument must be pleasing to the eye and to the ear. It’s an artistic endeavor over and above the actual construction of a musical item. City talked with five local guitar builders to discuss the passion and innovation that goes into a boutique-made guitar. We discussed art versus function, innovation versus tradition, and falling in love with a creation before setting it free.

of them.” Now he sells the instruments he creates for $750 to $3,000 a pop. Though Mortillaro adheres to the tradition of working with wood on classic designs, he still looks to explore and innovate, as he did with his carbon-fiber archtop guitar. He enjoys “going outside the box with something a little bit off the wall, something that no one had tried yet, and trying to make that a reality,” he says. “It’s a balancing act, like trying to get the electronics to balance with the acoustics, to work out all the kinks.”
Bernie Lehmann LEHMANNSTRINGS.COM
Bernie Lehmann started building mountain dulcimers after graduating from Syracuse University in 1972. “They were simple,” he says. “Honestly, I didn’t know what one was, but I wanted to make stringed instruments and they looked like something fairly simple to get going on and learn the basic processes. I would eventually move to guitars.” Lehmann builds about a dozen instruments annually: flat tops, archtops, gypsy, and classical guitars, as well as mandolins and ukuleles, and lutes and Medieval-style fiddles. He even builds a weird hybrid instrument
Robert Mortillaro It takes time to build a beautiful guitar, especially if you’re busy fixing other people’s instruments. Because of his workload, guitar builder and repairman Robert Mortillaro only builds one or two custom-ordered guitars per year. “A Telecaster-type electric guitar I can finish in a weekend,” he says. “A flat-top guitar can take anywhere from a month to six months. The most elaborate guitar I built was for my brother for his graduation — graduation from high school. But I kept adding things onto it, so it became graduation from college.” Mortillaro, who has worked as a repair and set-up luthier at Bernunzio Uptown Music for 10 years, began building his own guitars in 2005. “I started building mostly solid-body electric guitars,” he says. “About a year later I really got into building acoustic flat tops.” But he wasn’t taking orders, they were all for him. Mortillaro holds a master’s degree in fine arts. “For my thesis at RIT I built a mandolin, a flattop guitar, and an electric guitar,” he says. “It was really a nice sense of accomplishment to see an idea develop into something that was tangible.” And he admits to growing attached to the fruits of his labor. “The first few I ended up hanging on to,” Mortillaro says, “because I didn’t want to get rid

he dreamed up with musician Laurence Sugarman, simply called the munjo. “It’s got a mandolin body with a five-string banjo neck on it,” says Lehmann. “And it has a Viking head carved into the headstock and it has a domed, lute-like back.” Though Lehmann focuses mostly on flattop guitars, all of his creations are functioning works of art. They sound as good as they look. The lush, supple woods, the exquisite hardware, the patina and mirror gloss of their finish give the instruments the look of fine furniture. The appearance is captivating, but Lehmann stresses the priorities. “Function and tone come first, but art is extremely important to me,” he says. “And I think the two can be combined. I’m always willing to experiment and see what I can get away with.” Lehmann has played around with innovations like installing second sound boards in a guitar to help brighten the response. He has also installed upper sound ports to bring more tone and sound up to the player’s ears. Lehmann estimates that he puts roughly 80 to 100 hours into a basic flat-top guitar — and that’s the minimum. A Lehmann guitar will cost between $4,000 and $15,000. And in those long hours he’s been known to grow attached and fall in love with some of his projects. It can be hard to let go. “It is very hard,” he says. “I get very attached to them. That’s part of the beauty for me, instilling myself into it, making each one a A headstock crafted by Robert Mortillaro, who holds a master's in fine arts from Rochester Institute of Technology.

Greg Bogoshian ROCKBEACH GUITARS ROCKBEACHGUITARS.COM
Twelve years ago, Greg Bogoshian was playing in a group called Circle of Friends at Covenant United Methodist Church. Up to that point, he’d never built so much as a birdhouse out of lumber. But after stumbling upon some gorgeous planks of African Padauk at Pittsford Lumber, Bogoshian was moved to action. “I’d never seen wood with that color, that grain to it,” he says. “I said, ‘I have to do something with it.’ I’d never built anything
with wood before.” Bogoshian had played acoustic, but thought it was time to switch to electric. So he built an electric guitar, drawing upon his 38 years of experience as a technician at Xerox. “I kind of used those skills, experiences, and techniques to develop my process for construction,” says Bogoshian. “And I used my instincts for what would sound good. I wanted to do it right.” There is no mistaking a RockBeach guitar. They’re radical enough to be different, but not so much so that they no longer
look like a guitar. The problem, according to Bogoshian, is players typically and stubbornly go for what they know — the Stratocasters, the Telecasters, the Les Pauls, and the SGs of their heroes. RockBeach guitars look different, not just for aesthetic reasons, but out of functionality. The beautiful woods are layered for durability and sustainability, and the body of the guitar is hollowed out or “channeled,” adding tone while at the same time reducing weight. The bottoms of the Cicada and Mantis models are split to go on the player’s leg as opposed to having the instrument slip and slide
around on their lap. “Ergonomics are very important to me,” Bogoshian says. Bogoshian builds roughly four to five guitars per year, spending anywhere from 75 to 300 hours on each, depending on complexity. A RockBeach guitar will typically run in the $1,300 to $2,800 range. Despite the time he spends with each piece, Bogoshian has no problem letting them go. “These guitars belong in more competent hands than mine,” he says.
Beau Leopard BL DESIGN | BLDESIGN.US
Beau Leopard started playing bass at 14 and quickly discovered he wanted more than was available out there. “About a year later I wanted a better bass,” he says. “I was interested in playing a five-string like I saw in magazines. I just wanted something more interesting.” “I grew up building stuff with my father, mainly skateboard-related things,” Leopard says. “He suggested I build a bass. So I did. I bought the neck pre-made, but I built the body. I had some help from local banjo builder Richard Newman, who was a friend of my father, with things like cutting the neck pocket out. As I went further down the road, it got quite involved.” In 2005 Leopard began building in earnest, basing his designs on the playability he required and the high-end instruments he saw advertised and at shows, like Les Claypool’s custom bass built by Carl Thompson. He focused on rare, high-end woods and intricate designs without forgoing the playability. “I think at first it was about appearance,” says Leopard. “And as the years went on it became more about function. Even the second and third basses I built in shop class in high school were pretty exotic. Early on I was blown away by the aesthetics of it.” As a builder, Leopard finds satisfaction in filling a void. “I like to see what a client wants that they can’t get out there,” he says. “Something that they haven’t been able to find. It gets pretty specific, like the distance between continues on page 14 rochestercitynewspaper.com CITY 13

the bottom of the string and the top of the instrument for those players who slap, is sort of critical. Overall, the most important thing is how it feels, how it balances. There’s not a lot out there that feels like my stuff does. There’s a lot of eye candy involved, but when you take that all away, it’s really about a highperformance instrument.” His customers are willing to forgo tradition to achieve this performance. “Granted,” says Leopard, “the p-bass [precision bass] and the j-bass [jazz bass] are the staple instruments. But I think bass players are a little more willing to take risks as far as custom instruments.” Leopard builds about four basses a year with 120 hours put into each one, not including client consultation time. His basses cost between $3,000 and $7,000. Despite the somewhat steep price tag and some musicians’ fear of the new, Leopard helps boost sales and awareness by encouraging test drives of his equipment at various open jams in the area, where he sets up hands-on displays of his work. “I put everything I have into these things, so sure, it’s tough to let go of them,” he says. “But it helps when they go to great players. I’ve sold some basses in Rochester, but the main market is mostly in major cities. I have had good luck in Toronto, L.A., New York.”
Ben Bruton BRUTON GUITARS BRUTONGUITARS.COM
Ben Bruton was a funky rock ’n’ roller in the Rochester-based band 11 Ft 7 during the 1990’s. After that band went six feet south, he discovered that he was equally handy with the tools he used to build guitars, which allowed him to remain involved in the music scene. “When the band decided to call it quits,” Bruton says, “I was like, ‘What am I going to do now?’ That was kind of my biggest
ambition. So I decided to marry the two talents I had so I could stay in music somehow. And with the wood-working skills and the music I thought, ‘Hey, you know what? Maybe I can venture into a business with this.’” Bruton started his business back in 2008, but he built his first guitar in 1998, and took it on the road for four years. Bruton perfected his luthier skills as an intern with Bernie Lehmann for a year and a half. That helped him to implement the features he desired as a player, in addition to meeting the demands of his clients. “They were things I wanted as a player,” says Bruton. “But it wasn’t exclusive. As I started to build more for people, their input was very important. But a lot of that had to do with details like how it was set up and the finer points. But the actual model shapes and things like that were just really things that appealed to me.” The appeal is both aesthetic and tangible to Bruton. “I think it’s a magic combination of both,” he says. “It’s functional art, when you come right down to it.” At his highest point of productivity Bruton figures he was probably building 12 guitars annually. It varies year to year. “It’s not a ton,” he says. “But I’m staying busy.” He figures he can bang out one of his simpler models in less than a week. The fancier guitars take a while longer. “For some of my more complicated models, like my full archtop body style, that takes up to three weeks,” he says. A Bruton custom will cost you between $1,300 and $3,900. Bruton dismisses his own innovation as the innovation of all luthiers. For him, it’s all about the relationship between creator and player. “Builders all strive for the same thing,” he says. “Great playability, great sound, great tone. On an individual basis, it’s a relationship

385-8565 ROCK | WAYLAND
DINE IN & TAKE OUT
If there is ever going to be a serious revival of blue-collar hard rock, you can look to bands like Wayland — bands that turn the volume way up and let the good times roll. The Grand Rapids, Michigan-based act pays homage to performers including Bob Seger with its whiskey-driven barroom blitz. I wouldn’t call Wayland a throwback, but check out the quartet’s latest single, “Reno,” with the a cappella intro, “It’s no Las Vegas no Atlantic City / The streets are dirty and the girls are cocaine pretty.” Some days you feel like pushing the musical envelope, other days you feel like beer and hot wings. The JJ Lang Band, Nasty Habit, and Knight Patrol also play. Wayland performs on Thursday, April 3, 7 p.m. at Pineapple Jacks, 507 Spencerport Road. $5-$8. 247-5225. — BY ROMAN DIVEZUR [ POP/ROCK ]

SINGER-SONGWRITER | ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO
JAZZ | LOU DONALDSON QUARTET
Unless you’re really into the indie scene or are a fan of “Veronica Mars,” musician Alejandro Escovedo has probably dodged your ears to this point. He’s been around for more than 20 years, putting out songs that range from rock to Americana (listen to “Castanets” and “Gravity, Falling Down Again” to hear said range). When you listen to his music, you’ll wonder how he has remained so under the radar over the years. Escovedo’s music is equal parts Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen. If you’re still not convinced he’s an act worth checking out, maybe this neat little fact will help: back in 2005, when George Bush was still in office, “Castanets” appeared on the president’s iPod playlist. Escovedo reportedly refused to perform the song anymore until Bush removed it, or was out of office.
You don’t have to own any classic Blue Note albums from the 1960’s to know that the name Lou Donaldson is synonymous with soul-jazz. Donaldson, a saxophone master, is a member of the greatest generation of jazz players. He worked with Art Blakey before Blakey even started the Jazz Messengers, and played alongside greats like Thelonious Monk, Clifford Brown, and Milt Jackson. When Donaldson brings his quartet to WGMC’s Meet the Artist Concert, he’ll be accompanied by Akiko Tsuruga on Hammond B3 organ, Randy Johnston on guitar, and Fukushi Tainaka on drums.
Alejandro Escovedo will be joined by his band The Sensitive Boys and opener Amy Cook Tuesday, April 8, at Zeppa Auditorium, 315 Gregory St. 7:30 p.m. $25-$30. zeppabistro.com. — BY TREVOR LEWIS

Hot in Baltimore “The Hot L Baltimore” THROUGH APRIL 12 BLACKFRIARS THEATRE, 795 E. MAIN ST. $28.50-$36.50 | 454-1260, BFTIX.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
With “The Hot L Baltimore,” Blackfriars brings back an important play by an important American playwright, and does justice to an elusive piece. Lanford Wilson died in 2011, and his reputation seems to be undergoing that slight posthumous dip that many artists undergo. But I think he’ll eventually rate very high among American playwrights for a string of plays he produced in the 1980’s, including “The Fifth of July,” “Talley’s Folley,” and “Burn This.” And then there is the most famous of them all, or at least the most famous title of them all: “The Hot L Baltimore.” The play was a great success in the early 70’s: the original Off-Broadway production ran for more than 1,000 performances, and it must surely be one of the very few plays to become a sitcom (which was considerably less successful). If “The Hot L Baltimore” is not performed very much, it is not because of the play’s quality. Probably it’s because it has no fewer than 14 leading parts, some of them very demanding, and it calls for a big, elaborate set — not to mention a director who can weave it all together. I’m happy to say that Blackfriars provides all of the above.
Wilson crafted a very interesting play that I guess you could call a mood piece: nothing much seems to happen in it, yet it turns out to be about any number of important things. It’s a portrait gallery of the inhabitants of a once-elegant hotel from the 1930’s, which is in fact condemned and facing the wrecker’s ball. (The play’s title reflects the missing “e” in the hotel’s sign.) The building’s residents come and go in the lobby, telling important and unimportant things about themselves. To choose at random, there is a gentle elderly lady given to reminiscences (Vicki Casarett); a noisy elderly gentleman who reminisces about nothing, spending most of his time complaining (Richard Mancini); a varied trio of prostitutes who ply their trade in their rooms and talk about it in the lobby (Mandy Hassett, Stephanie Roosa, Alexa Scott); and a forceful young girl (Marcy Savastano) plotting to get out of Baltimore and travel west with her shy, stammering brother (Devin O’Connell). There is also a young man (Jimmy Boorum) trying to find out what has happened to his grandfather, who lived in the hotel, and a woman (Dawn M. Sargent) whose son lives there and who spends much of the play walking back and forth removing his belongings. And there’s also a put-upon hotel staff (Jeff Siuda, Morey Fazzi, Janine Mercandetti). Wilson presents these characters with great empathy, and balances and interweaves their stories with great skill, but he has more on his mind than presenting a stage full of (mostly) loveable losers. “The Hot
L Baltimore” was written in the era of Watergate and the end of the Vietnam War. The once-great hotel in decline is pretty clearly a stand-in for a once-great nation in decline, and many of the characters’ speeches refer to better times gone by. (“The Hot L Baltimore” takes place in a single day — significantly, it’s Memorial Day.) By the end of the play, a few characters have escaped, some are planning to escape, and a few are dancing their worries away. This play may be 40 years old, but it doesn’t really seem dated at all. “The whole damn country’s double parked!” shouts a character as she is making her way out of the hotel near the end — and several decades later, the meter’s still running. The whole production has the wonderful sense of unity that comes from a cast and an artistic staff working in sync. Under David Runzo’s direction, a play that could easily meander seems perfectly paced and balanced, with a constant underlying energy. Individual performances are vividly characterized, but they also support each other in a real ensemble. John Haldoupis has designed a beautiful, wonderfully detailed playing space, where shabby reality bumps up against faded art-deco glamor. I should add that “The Hot L Baltimore” contains some rough language, not to mention a brief flash (as it were) of female nudity, but I wouldn’t let that stop me from seeing one of the most beautifully presented plays I’ve seen at Blackfriars.

SPECIAL EVENT | ASSEMBLE! AN AVENGERS QUIZ
Calling all geeks and superhero aficionados: brush up on your favorite Captain America, Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man comic books and films as you prepare for ASSEMBLE!, the Geeks Who Drink’s “Avengers” trivia night. Geeks Who Drink is a Denver-based company that runs more than 440 weekly pub quizzes for 20,000 players in 29 states. It runs four games in Rochester each week at various venues.
315 GREGORY ST • 563-6241 IN THE HISTORIC GERMAN HOUSE ZEPPABISTRO.COM
Previous themed quizzes have focused on such pop-culture favorites as “Game of Thrones,” “Breaking Bad,” and “Doctor Who.” The “Avengers” quiz night is a great way to ready fans for the premiere of the release of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which hits theaters on Friday. April 4. Quizzes are made up of eight rounds of eight questions and will cover both the comic books and the eight Marvel Studios films (the three Iron Man films, two Thor films, “Incredible Hulk,” the 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” and 2012’s “The Avengers”), but will focus mostly on the movies. Teams can include up to six people and cash prizes will be awarded to the winning team. ASSEMBLE! will take place Thursday, April 3, at 8 p.m. at Jeremiah’s Tavern, 1104 Monroe Ave. Admission is $5 for each player, and teams are allowed on a first-come, firstserved basis.

SPECIAL EVENT | EDIBLE BOOK FEST
“Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.” While Francis Bacon didn’t mean for his words to be taken literally, the International Edible Book Festival turns book “tasting” into a reality. Originally created in honor of the French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, who wrote the book “Physiologie de Gout” (“Physiology of Taste”), the festival today is celebrated in more than 20 countries around the time of April Fool’s Day. Featuring books created from cakes, sculpted fruits and vegetables, chocolate, macaroni, and other edible items, the festival allows participants to turn their favorite tales into a yummy treat. On Sunday, April 6, the Kate Gleason Auditorium at the Central Library (115 South Ave.) will hold the festival 2-4 p.m. Prizes will be given for the winners of each group: ages 7-11, ages 12-17, adult amateur, and professional. The event will also include food tastings and products by Hurd Orchards, cooking demonstrations and tastings from Monroe Community College’s hospitality program.

KIDS | “MY SON PINOCCHIO”
“The Adventures of Pinocchio,” the tale of a puppet that wanted to be a real boy, has emerged as one of the most iconic works of children’s literature, having been translated into more than 240 languages.

Theatre Young Kids Enjoy (TYKEs) brings its own spin to the classic story with “My Son Pinocchio.” Expect songs from the Disney movie, such as “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings.” Geppetto, the Blue Fairy, Stromboli, and other favorite characters will also take the stage for this action-packed adventure story. Performances take place at the Jewish Community Center, 1200 Edgewood Ave., on Saturday and Sunday, April 5-6.

Refuting Darwin, improving on the Bible “Noah”
(PG-13), DIRECTED BY DARREN ARONOFSKY NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
Like the Biblical account of creation, with Adam and Eve consuming the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden or the construction and destruction of the Tower of Babel, the story of Noah reflects the Bible’s cyclical accounts of mankind’s overreaching and its consequent punishment. Darren Aronofsky’s new film, “Noah,” changes a good deal in the familiar tale of Noah and the Ark, in effect
boldly creating a new mythology on the foundations of the old. To begin with, a voiceover provides a whole new account of the history of humankind after the Fall, a strange and utterly preposterous tale of an industrial civilization established by the descendants of Cain — all of this thousands of years ago — which ultimately pollutes the Earth, turning it into a wasteland. Aside from Noah (Russell Crowe) and his family, apparently the only good people left, a group of fallen angels expelled from Heaven inhabit that barren world, strangely turned into animated piles of rock that lumber about, waving their multiple arms and growling like cement mixers. They defend Noah and his family against an attack by the other folks, throngs of Cain’s tribe, led by an angry villain named Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone). A vision of water inspires Noah to build the famous ark, with the help of his family and those articulated rock piles, and further, on instructions from God, always called the Creator in the

movie, fill it with all the Earth’s living things. To keep the enormous floating zoo quiet and livable, Noah’s wife Naameh (Jennifer Connelly) ingeniously concocts a sort of incense that knocks them all out — the birds, the insects, the reptiles, the elephants, etc. — so they can sleep for the requisite 40 days and 40 nights. Aronofsky also improves on the Old Testament by elaborating the bare Biblical sketch of Noah’s family, creating tensions between him and his two older sons, Shem (Douglas Booth) and Ham (Logan Lerman). The director turns Noah into a gloomy, deranged tyrant, who believes that mankind should simply vanish after everyone in his family dies, and therefore resolves to murder the newborn children of Shem’s wife, Ila (Emma Watson). Another conflict that the Bible somehow missed results from the presence of a stowaway on the ark, good old Tubal-cain again, who temporarily persuades Ham to betray his father and attempts to kill the skipper. Despite its wealth of wonderful stories, most of the movies based on the Bible, except possibly for some of those lavish epics of Cecil B. DeMille (my own favorite is “Samson and Delilah”), generally achieve only indifferent artistic success. Pursuing a decidedly unusual approach to the text and benefiting from the latest in cinema technology, Darren Aronofsky hardly challenges anything of DeMille’s or any other director. (Incidentally, the most memorable Noah, John Huston, plays him as

“The Lunchbox” (PG), DIRECTED BY RITESH BATRA OPENING FRIDAY AT THE LITTLE [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
an irascible drunk in the modestly titled “The Bible,” which Huston also directed.) Although many of the events and people in the Old Testament provide appropriate subjects for epic treatment — Moses and David, for example — Aronofsky’s effort grows ever more ludicrous as it piles on bizarre inventions and ridiculous creatures. The inclusion of all sorts of other people to flesh out the tale — not only Tubal-cain and his thousands, but also Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins) and flashbacks to Adam and Eve presented as glowing silhouettes — suggests a kind of directorial desperation. Thanks to the wonders of computer-generated images and all the paraphernalia of contemporary technology that so many viewers and reviewers mistake for filmmaking, “Noah” overflows with myriad special effects, which may in fact provide the major appeal, if any, of the film. The sequences showing all the creatures of the Earth, from butterflies to elephants, heading for the ark make for a most impressive series of images — it’s hard to resist a shot of hundreds of snakes slithering hurriedly toward salvation. Among all the remarkable effects, probably the most spectacular involve the actual flood, which begins with multiple waterspouts shooting out of the ground to meet the torrential rains from above, creating the ocean that covers the Earth and floats the enormous vessel. That particular sequence suggests the great triumph of Hollywood over the Bible itself. It shows what God would have done if only He had the money.
Jason Bateman has made a successful career out of playing the straight man. From “Arrested Development” through recent big-screen work like “Identity Thief,” the actor excels at playing the mild-mannered nice guy, exasperated by the insanity that surrounds — and frequently threatens to overwhelm — him. The role suits him so well that it’s an unexpected delight to find that he’s chosen to toss this go-to persona aside to play the foul-mouthed Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old misanthrope who, for reasons known only to himself, has chosen to start crashing children’s spelling bees. All this to say, it’s not entirely shocking to find that “Bad Words,” which marks Bateman’s directorial debut, has a soft, chewy center hidden beneath its sour exterior. Exploiting a loophole in contest rules that stipulate that contestants must not

have passed beyond an 8th grade level, Trilby—a middle-school dropout— has the grounds to enter into the competition, but also the intelligence that allows him to remain there and earn his way toward his ultimate goal of making it to the nationals. Trilby is accompanied by Jenny (a frumped-up Kathryn Hahn), a journalist whose online publication serves as Guy’s sponsor while she attempts to write a story about him. Mostly she’s there to look on with embarrassment as her companion angers parents, bullies children, and harasses officials, and in between Jenny engages in occasional bouts of hostile sex with her subject. It’s never entirely clear why her character would have stuck with Guy as long as she has, or how her small, mostly unknown blog has the monetary resources to bankroll Trilby’s mission. Despite strong performances from both actors, their pairing is the weakest aspect of the film. Much more successful is Trilby’s unlikely and uneasy friendship with a 10-year-old fellow competitor named Chaitanya, played by scene-stealing newcomer Rohan Chand. Seemingly resistant to the constant stream of invectives spewed at him, Chaitanya latches on and won’t let go no matter how hard Guy tries to shake him off. Chand and Bateman have a fun, easy rapport, and it’s clear rather quickly that the kid is bound to soften Guy up, at least a little. Bateman proves himself a talented director; he keeps things moving with a trim running time while also managing to inject a fair amount of style into the film. It’s a welcome change of pace in the era of bloated, flat-looking comedies. The film’s script, written by Andrew Dodge, strikes a delicate balance. Guy acts like an asshole, but always with some sense that he’s not truly taking pleasure
in the reactions he’s evoking. This lends an interesting dynamic to the film as it becomes obvious that his reasons for doing what he’s doing, and which serve as the film’s underlying mystery, are centered in real hurt, anger, and pain. Thankfully, this doesn’t make the sight of Bateman making children cry any less hilarious to watch. Bateman makes use of his expert comedic timing to intimidate and manipulate the kids (and adults), and maybe it’s just the fact that I’m not a parent, but man, does tormenting children to tears make for comedy gold. Fate brings a lonely office worker and
a young, unhappily married housewife together in an unexpected friendship in writer-director Ritesh Batra’s warm-hearted, humanistic fable, “The Lunchbox.” Following the old adage that the way to man’s heart is through his stomach, Ila (Nimrat Kaur) hopes to reignite her marriage by arranging to have a special lunchbox sent to her husband at his work. By chance, the box is instead delivered to Saajan (Irrfan Khan, “Life of Pi”), a widower on the verge of retirement. Once the mistake is discovered, Ila sends another lunchbox, this time with a note tucked inside, to which Saajan responds. Soon the pair is writing back and forth through letters in the lunchbox, and a bond is formed. Such a premise might have led down the road of schmaltzy, cloying sentimentality, but instead, as Saajan and Ila’s letter become more confessional, opening up about their lives, Batra (making his first feature-length film) offers keen insight into how we define the purpose of our lives. In his hands, this slight, but moving, tale is as pleasurable as dining on your favorite comfort food. Just make sure not to see it on an empty stomach.

24 Hawthorne Street Located in the highly desirable East Avenue Historic District, 24 Hawthorne Street was built in 1912 and crafted by Rochester-based architect Claude Bragdon. A contemporary of Frank Lloyd Wright and Louis Sullivan, Bragdon designed nearly 100 local private residences in addition to numerous public buildings such as the First Universalist Church of Rochester, the Chamber of Commerce building, the gorgeous but now lost Rochester’s New York Central Railroad Station (demolished in 1966), and George Eastman’s House West Garden. Additionally, he oversaw the construction of the Memorial Art Gallery during 1912 and 1913. Bragdon valued harmony and balance in all things and infused this beautiful multi-storied home with the architectural style of the Arts and Crafts movement. At approximately 2,645 square feet, the house boasts five bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths. Meticulously maintained, the home on Hawthorne Street was originally built for insurance businessman Egbert Ashley and his wife, Elizabeth. The neutral color palette and period features preserve the integrity of the home’s era while incorporating modern-day improvements and amenities for the contemporary homeowner. Gleaming hardwoods span the entire first floor and a Grueby-tiled fireplace anchors the living room. Renowned for their matte green glaze, the tiles were the signature style of the Grueby Faience Company, founded by William H. Grueby in Boston, Massachusetts. In that spacious living room hang copies of the home’s

original architectural renderings (which will be left in the home after the sale). The living room opens to the dining room, which leads into the kitchen. According to the renderings, a pantry once linked the dining room and kitchen but the present kitchen was expanded into that space to create one large room. The glass-paneled cabinetry lends a modern feel to the kitchen and includes room for a breakfast nook. The abundance of windows on every level provides natural light continuously from sunrise to dusk. There are windows tucked in the most interesting places—like in the basement, the second-floor hallway’s bathroom shower, and in one of the bedroom closets. Bragdon used special privacy glass in both of the second-floor bathroom windows, which allows sunlight to enter without the fear of betraying modesty. Four bedrooms are on the second floor— one in each corner. The two bedrooms on the left side, formerly Mrs. Ashley and her daughter’s bedrooms, open to a joint balcony, which, one hundred years ago, was used as a sleeping porch in the summer months. The finished attic bedroom, a private space perfect for house guests, even includes a modest full bath with clawfoot tub. This property is truly a masterful work and in immaculate condition. It is listed by agent Brian Donovan of Nothnagle REALTORS® who can be reached at 585-703-3888. by Jennifer Ostromecki Jennifer is a volunteer writer for The Landmark Society.
