Man made: artists redefine craft stereotypes If the word “craft fair” brings up imagery of all things sweet, delicate, and pretty, with hair clips, jewelry, knittery, and journals, think again. While it may be true that the local-focusing craft markets have been mini-femme fests, lately there has been an increase in male artists mixed in with the gals. The following article features four Rochester-based creator dudes who have been spotted at Rochester’s indie-art fairs, makers of fascinating work that transcends the niches from which they arose.
Find out about Robert Rogalski’s Hobbit hole-like dollhouses and other detailed works (pictured above), Gil Merritt’s ambitious and addictive Chenille Macabre figurines, and the intricate found-object musical instruments made by the duo known as Man Crafts. Check out the online version of this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com, where you can watch videos of an Amputheatre game in action, as well as cigar-box guitars being played, and view photo slideshows of more of the artwork discussed inside.

I have to agree with gun owners on one point (“Our Guns and Our Fear,” Urban Journal). That is that the definition of a particular style of gun as an assault rifle is not necessarily a deterrent to a killer. However, one bit of legislation could have a real effect on limiting the potential for mass type killing: that would be to eliminate all firearms with the exception of single-shot weapons. Specifically, legal arms could hold only a single cartridge, which must be manually reloaded after each shot. This would not only eliminate the potential for mass shootings, but it would also increase gun safety for legal sporting use. As someone who has a lifelong involvement in wildlife conservation, I am at the receiving end of a load of sporting and gun catalogs. The recent trend in ads for thousands of rounds of ammunition, high-capacity magazines, and burial containers for hiding guns and ammo makes me think our so-called civilized sportsmen are less civilized than I had hoped.
only thing stopping the US government from enslaving or committing genocide on its own people is a few people with AR-15s would be laughable if it wasn’t a core belief of the gunrights lobby. Opponents to gun-safety legislation attempt to use a slippery-slope argument in which any legislation is equivalent to an outright ban or confiscation. An outright ban on all guns is in violation of the Second Amendment, but regulation including mandatory background checks, limited magazine capacity, and an arms registry are all constitutional as deemed in the Supreme Court case DC vs. Heller and the Interstate Commerce Act of 1887. Kenyatta Dacosta fails to mention the vast majority of countries with stricter gun laws that haven’t experienced any form of enslavement or government-sponsored genocide (England, Australia, Canada, France, Norway, etc.). Regulations put forth in recent months would constitute only a minimal inconvenience for the lawful gun owner, whereas curtailing guns in the hands of people who should not have them and limiting the damage that mass shooters can inflict have real-world consequences that would save the lives of hundreds of Americans. It is time to take an adult approach to this issue and not accept the status quo of 11,000 gun deaths per year as the price we pay for lax gun regulation.

The next race for city mayor
On Urban Journal’s “Choosing a Mayor in a Challenging Time”: The current leadership has been focused on slashing services to meet reduced revenues and not focusing nearly enough on actually growing revenues. There’s a generational shift occurring right now. Urban living is much more popular among young adults and new empty nesters alike. Developers have been cashing in on this trend by building new apartments, condos, and townhouses in the city.
You’d think that the city would be cashing in too, but that hasn’t been the case. There have been a lot of tax giveaways to the developers instead. The logic is that the tax breaks are a catalyst for the development, but this development would have happened due to market demands regardless. Alex White is the only candidate who’s talked about making sure developers pay their fair share of the costs of the infrastructure they profit from. I’m tired of being asked to choose between closing a library or a rec center so that we can slash taxes on luxury condos. New leadership is needed across the board, and I hope people look to the Green Party to provide it. JASON PARTYKA

Regulating sales of ‘old jewelry’
On a Monroe County Legislature proposal to impose new regulations on pawnshops and other businesses that deal with second-hand items (News Blog): Several years ago New York state legislative houses tried almost the same proposal, and it failed. Why? It was an impossible law that: 1) Was not enforceable by police agencies; 2) was a burden to police agencies 3) poorly defined the people to be covered; 4) poorly defined the merchandise to be covered; 5) created undue financial burden on small business owners; 6) created impossible reporting requirements that would in effect make criminals out of the business owners who must report. Nothing has been resolved in the Monroe County proposal to fix any of these problems. It will not solve crime or help in the recovery of stolen goods. It will cause businesses to close, thereby affecting a net loss to retail sales tax coming into the county. Anyone who sells “some old jewelry” will be affected by this proposal. It is imperative to speak to your county representative about the failings of the proposed law. And plan to attend the hearing on April 9 at 6. BARBARA BOYCE

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
And now we wait: marriage and the court By the end of the day last Wednesday, things looked mildly hopeful for supporters of same-sex marriage. We won’t know until June, though, how the Supreme Court will rule on the two cases it heard last week. Few observers seem to expect that the court will issue a broad, sweeping ruling legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the nation. The most we can hope for, apparently, is that the court will rule that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional. That will give federal benefits to same-sex couples who have been married in the states where it is allowed. But that’s only a few states. And in some of the Justices’ comments and in the protests outside, we were reminded of how far we are from the end of homophobia and discrimination against the LGBT community. The disconnect between several Supreme Court Justices and the real world was stark; makes you wonder whether they ever set foot outside their chambers. During the first day of the arguments last week, Samuel Alito worried that same-sex marriage is just too new for the court to know what to do about it. Chief Justice John Roberts suggested that marriage equality is no big deal. “Same-sex couples have every other right,” he said. “It’s just about the label.” And helping decide the future of samesex marriage is Justice Antonin Scalia, who has a history of making stunning anti-gay comments. “If we cannot have moral feeling against homosexuality,” he said in a speech at Princeton late last year, “can we have it against murder?” (You can find other Scalia slurs on numerous news organizations’ websites; just search for “Scalia comments about gays.”) Conservative religion has injected its own peculiar argument: that the purpose of marriage is procreation. (The New York Times’ Maureen Dowd notes that Sonia Sotomayor was married but had no children, Clarence Thomas and his wife don’t have children, John Roberts’ children are adopted. And, writes Dowd: “What about George and Martha Washington? They only procreated a country.”) Despite all that, it seems possible that the court will get rid of DOMA. That will certainly be a step in the right direction. And for some marriage-equality supporters, that will be enough. In a New York Times article late last month, Georgetown University law professor David Cole urged the court to go slow. Eventually, he wrote, we’ll get there. But, he said: “Prudence
Should the LGBT community just be patient, waiting until anti-gay Americans like Antonin Scalia get religion or die off? counsels that marriage equality should be allowed to continue gaining support in the states, and that a federal resolution should be left for another day.” The Brown v. Board of Education school segregation ruling, he warned, precipitated “a notorious backlash.” Roe v. Wade “galvanized the anti-abortion movement, with political impacts that still linger.” The court shouldn’t “impose a uniform solution on the nation now,” he wrote. “Doing so could touch off civil resistance in the most conservative states.” So maybe the LGBT community should be patient, waiting until anti-gay Americans like Antonin Scalia get religion or die off. Maybe LGBT Americans should just suffer until every state grants them full rights. Waiting has a cost, though. And those who counsel “prudence” need to tell us: Which Supreme Court ruling carries the greater risk? Which threatens the greater tragedy? A broad one, finding the denial of same-sex marriage unconstitutional, possibly unleashing the “notorious backlash” Cole says we might face? Or the narrower ruling? That would provide federal benefits to same-sex couples fortunate enough to be married. But it would continue the governmental sanction of prejudice that has bred hatred, harassment, and discrimination and has resulted not only in humiliation but also in mental health problems and suicide. And what does it say about this country’s moral fabric when members of the highest court in the land join in the persecution of some of its citizens, defining them as lesser beings, not worthy of the rights of the majority?

Gates officials pursue casino
Town of Gates officials submitted a proposal to the Seneca Nation of Indians for a casino at the Rochester Tech Park, reported YNN. Town Supervisor Mark Assini told the news station that the park’s proximity to Route 531 and its available space are assets. During the state budget process, lawmakers discussed legalizing non-Indian casinos upstate, but they didn’t reach an agreement.

Buholtz ran for a board seat as a write-in candidate and in her lawsuit she argues that RPO officials didn’t properly notify all of the organization’s members who would have been eligible to vote. She also alleges that RPO officials didn’t recognize write-in ballots submitted at the annual meeting.

Cuomo compromises on IDA reform
DOMA, Prop 8 before Supremes
The US Supreme Court heard arguments regarding the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California. Though it is extremely difficult to predict how the justices will rule, many believe there will not be a sweeping ruling favoring same sex-sex couples across the country. Rulings in the two cases, which have been described as the most historic cases involving civil rights in years, are not expected before May.
When Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed a series of reforms for the state’s industrial development agencies, IDA representatives and local elected officials protested. Cuomo essentially wanted to restrict the agencies’ ability to grant exemptions on state sales tax, but local officials said that would rob them of a useful economic development incentive.
Governor Andrew Cuomo didn’t get the IDA reforms he wanted in the 2013 to 2014 budget. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Well, perhaps predictably, Cuomo’s proposal didn’t stick; lawmakers negotiated and passed a compromise reform package last week. In his 2013 to 2014 budget proposal, the governor said that the state doesn’t currently have input when IDA’s award state sales tax exemptions. He proposed limiting the industries that could receive the exemptions: housing and retail would no longer have been eligible. He also wanted the regional economic development councils and the state economic development commissioner to sign off on the exemptions. But the final legislation is quite different from that proposal: IDA’s will still be able to award state sales tax exemptions and no additional approvals will be required. The agencies will have some additional
reporting requirements, but they won’t face much in the way of restrictions on which industries can receive tax benefits. Some analyses of the legislation say it prevents IDA’s from giving state sales tax exemptions to some retail projects. IDA representatives and many local elected officials — though not all — are counting the outcome as a victory. But Brighton Supervisor Bill Moehle says he’s disappointed that the governor’s proposed reforms didn’t stick. Brighton officials have been critical of the Monroe County IDA in the past, saying it awards tax breaks to inappropriate projects. “I like the idea of having the state oversight on the sales tax,” Moehle says.
The county once planned to use the Gateway Centre and the Edwards building in the Renaissance Square project, which lurched to a halt in 2009. The project would have combined a bus terminal, theater, and Monroe Community College campus on a block at the corner of East Main Street and North Clinton Avenue.

Ren Square buildings headed to auction? Monroe County officials are planning to put three buildings up for auction, including two buildings that were once part of the Renaissance Square project. The county plans to sell Gateway Centre, 150 East Main Street; the Edwards building, 34 St. Paul Street; and 37 South Fitzhugh Street. All three were donated to the county by developer Max Farash. County officials have included revenue from the sale of the buildings in the last few county budgets, though the buildings remain unsold. This would be the county’s first attempt to auction the properties. The sale has to be approved by the Legislature. During a Legislature committee meeting last week, county real estate director Tim Murphy said officials used the same process to sell part of the former Iola campus. The county once planned to use the Gateway Centre and the Edwards building in the Renaissance Square project, which lurched to a halt in 2009. The project would have combined a bus terminal, theater, and Monroe Community College campus on a block at the corner of East Main Street and North Clinton Avenue. After the project died, MCC officials evaluated Gateway and Edwards for use

as a potential downtown campus site. But they decided against it due to the cost of renovating the properties. County officials would set a reserve on the three properties, which means they wouldn’t accept a figure below a certain amount. The county isn’t disclosing that figure, but in the 2013 budget, officials included $2 million in revenue from the sale of the three buildings. The Gateway Centre and Edwards buildings, which would be sold together, are located in the heart of downtown, not far from the new Midtown site. County spokesperson Justin Feasel says that the Edwards building would require some asbestos remediation, but that the work has already been done in Gateway Centre.

Incumbent Mayor Tom Richards won the endorsement of the city’s 24th Legislative District committee over the weekend on the march to the Democratic primary in September. He defeated challenger Lovely Warren, who is president of City Council, 35 to 9. The 24th LD is centered in the area around Highland Park. | The biggest news to come out of the meeting, however, is that Warren seems to have changed her opinion on same-sex marriage. Asked about the issue at a different meeting of Democratic insiders a couple of weeks ago, Warren said tersely that same-sex marriage is the law in New York State and that she would follow the law. | At the 24th District meeting, however, Warren said that the federal Defense of Marriage Act should be repealed, and that “I don’t believe government should tell people who to love.” Warren said a conversation with a young man helped convince her that the country has largely “moved on” from the issue, and she compared marriage equality to interracial marriage. | Mayor Richards says he has consistently supported marriage equality.

Remanufacturing: RIT awakens a giant For much of the last two centuries, Northeastern cities like Rochester saw their local economies and work forces transformed by manufacturing. Rochester, a manufacturing powerhouse on its own, produced and even created items that changed how Americans lived. From buttons to caskets to cameras and copiers, this area’s factories churned out a staggering range of products. But by the mid 1970’s, many of Rochester’s factories had either downsized or shuttered their doors. While manufacturing is not what it once was in Rochester, a rather inconspicuous but related industry has emerged. And it’s dramatically changing the way products are produced in the 21st century. “Remanufacturing” in its simplest form is the process of taking old and used products and determining which parts are suitable for reuse, says Nabil Nasr, director of the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability. “You’re taking something that has been used for a while, and back at the factory, you’re disassembling everything to the component level,” he says. “Through a similar process that was used to create the original product, we assess the condition of each of the components. The components that are worn or non-functional are replaced, and the product is reassembled.” The “reman” industry is poised for major growth, Nasr says, and the opportunities for RIT and Rochester are significant. RIT’s Golisano Institute for Sustainability and the Remanufacturing Industries Council will host a two-day business roundtable for leaders in the field on Thursday, April 11, and Friday, April 12. The event is intended to provide business leaders, students, and researchers the latest reman information, though the roundtable is open to the general public. To register: www.remancouncil.org. Remanufacturing is not a new concept, Nasr says. “The first industrialist to establish a serious remanufacturing company and really use it was Henry Ford,” Nasr says. “Ford discovered that a lot of his cars were coming back when the engine reached the end of its life, but the rest of the car’s parts were in good shape. And then, after further examination of the engines, he discovered that they, too, [had] so many viable parts that were absolutely fine to use for another cycle.” A lot has changed since Ford’s early reman applications in the 1930’s. US production of remanufactured goods totaled about $43 billion in 2011, up from $37
billion in 2009. And the industry employed nearly 200,000 full-time workers, according to “Remanufactured Goods: an Overview of US and Global Industries, Markets, and Trade,” a report by the US International Trade Commission in Washington, DC. US exports of remanufactured goods climbed to $12 billion in 2011, up more than 50 percent from 2009, the report says. Nasr says the industry is much larger, however. “By my estimate, it’s over $100 billion because they did not include all of the different [business] sectors,” he says. “For example, the Department of Defense remanufactured the B-52. The B-52 is over 90 years old.” Remanufacturing is now being used by companies in virtually every major business sector, but the automotive, medical device, and aerospace industries account for more than 50 percent of the industry. Toner cartridges for copiers are a good, recognizable example of remanufacturing Nasr says. The products were quite innovative when they were first introduced into the marketplace, he says. “All the toner was in one place, and when you were done, you could throw the cartridge away,” he says. “You’re not touching the toner, it’s not messy. But hundreds of thousands of them were ending up in landfills.” And the used cartridges contain residual toner, which is harmful to the environment. But some companies have discovered value in the used cartridges: they can be taken apart, the worn parts replaced, and the cartridge refilled with toner. What used to be trash, now has economic value, Nasr says. The product is cheaper than a new cartridge, he says, and environmental damage has been reduced. “The key thing to remember is that as a society our consumption rate is going up and up,” Nasr says. “There was a report the

FREE TRIAL PSYCHIC’S THYME other day that said the increase in the middle class of China, India, and other countries is contributing tremendously to this rapid increase in consumption.” Another force behind the growth of the remain industry is the advancement of technology, Nasr says. “Our ability to develop better and better products is quickly shrinking the lifespan of those products,” he says. “If you look at a cell phone, for example, if you say you’re going to use a cell phone for more than two years, people will look at you in shock. The advancement in features is so great within a two-year period that it makes it difficult for us to say, ‘I’m going to use this for a long time.’ It’s uncommon and it’s not practical.”

Dining La Casa is a monumental task is to indulge in gross understatement. If you really want to see La Casa’s service at

Home made La Casa Restaurant 93 ALEXANDER ST. 730-5025 MONDAY-FRIDAY 11 A.M.-10 P.M.; SATURDAY 5-10 P.M.; SUNDAY 10 A.M.-6 P.M. [ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
La Casa on Alexander Street is certainly the most hotly anticipated Mexican joint in the city; countless fans and aficionados have been waiting eight years for it to finally open. A bit more than eight years ago, Omar Ramos, his wife, Mia Bocanegra, and their 10-year-old daughter Cassie opened a tiny tacqueria in the back of the now-closed Rich Port Bakery at the Rochester Public Market. Selling only tacos, with a strong emphasis on carnitas (slow-roasted pork) and seasoned potatoes, the family’s Monterrey Taco was an immediate and overwhelming success. You had to get there before noon if you had any hope of getting tacos before they ran out of supplies, and even if you arrived early you could anticipate standing in line for anywhere from 15 minutes to half an hour before you even placed your order. But it was always worth it.
Monterrey quickly outgrew its space, moving next door to the Union Street Bakery building where the menu expanded and the lines got even longer. Mia Bocanegra started making transcendent posole during the winter, the selection of meats expanded, and Monterrey began offering specials like enchiladas verdes and tamales. Eventually, the Ramos family business outgrew its Union Street location, too, and found a new home, and a much larger kitchen, in Lyjah Wilton’s Boulder Coffee shop in the former Java Joe’s at 1 Public Market. Renamed La Placita, the enterprise continued to build on its almost cult-like following. Eventually Ramos and Bocanegra listened to their customers, and their landlord Wilton, all of whom were clamoring for them to open a restaurant so that they could get their taco fix more than once a week. In late February of this year, the couple opened La Casa in a remodeled house owned by Wilton. Although La Casa is owned by Wilton, Ramos
and Bocanegra are the guiding spirits behind the business, and their skill, determination, and willingness to put in total effort all the time informs everything done in the restaurant that they manage. While the grand
opening is still more than a month away — a blow-out celebration is planned for Cinco de Mayo — you would never know that La Casa hasn’t been open for years rather than barely a month. The service is nearly peerless, all of the waiters and waitresses are efficient, friendly, unflappable, and well informed. In the style of the very best table service, you almost don’t notice how well and how smoothly your evening is progressing, finding yourself surprised when the check comes and it’s finally time to go home. As good as the service is, the food is better. Omar Ramos and his crew are no strangers to the rigors of a dinner rush — a dinner rush is probably relatively relaxing compared to the frenetic pace that Ramos and company experience at the Market each Saturday morning. Food at La Casa comes out remarkably quickly given that every single item, with the exception of the tortillas, is made from scratch. Salsas, rich maroon mole, deeply flavored brick-red guajillo pepper sauce, silky smooth queso fundido (a cheese sauce that deserves its fancy name), and the stocks used in their soups are all made fresh every day along with more types of beef, chicken, and pork than seems credible given the size of the kitchen staff. To say that prep at
its very best, start your meal with an order of guacamole ($5.99). It is made tableside, the wait staff masterfully combining avocados with chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and pickled jalapenos to make an excitingly chunky dip full of rich flavors and luxurious textures. Resist the temptation to fill up on the appetizer, though, because even better things are available for you to try. Those who are familiar with La Casa’s previous incarnations will immediately gravitate toward the tacos, hand-sized corn tortillas filled with carnitas or grilled steak (carne asada), or Ramos’ spicy and delightfully porky homemade chorizo. Dressed with a bit of salsa or perhaps a squeeze of lime or pico de gallo, these are as good as they are at Market, and an excellent choice. (Three tacos, with rice, beans, and salad, cost $10.99.) But you should also branch out a bit. Any of the enchiladas are excellent. My wife is partial to the enchiladas verdes ($10.99), stuffed with shreds of slow-roasted chicken and topped with a generous quantity of cool green salsa with just the tiniest bite of poblano pepper and crumbled queso fresco. I gravitate toward the enchiladas de mole ($10.99), also filled with chicken but topped with a mole sauce that Ramos told me is made in a food processor but tastes like it was hand ground in a molina watched over by a very particular Mexican grandmother. The heat in these will build on you over time, so be sure to bring plenty of beer with you. (Although the restaurant’s liquor license was just approved, it will still be a couple weeks before it rolls out its beer list, an artisanal cocktail menu, and what Wilton told me will be the most robust highend tequila list in town.) The mosh-pit atmosphere at the Public Market didn’t allow Ramos to really spread his wings and make more complex dishes very frequently, a luxury that he now has at La Casa. That tiny amount of leisure means that he has the time to make tamales ($10.99), pockets of masa stuffed with carnitas, a spicy mixture of cheese and jalapenos, or chicken stewed in green salsa served in the cornhusks in which they were steamed. And it allows him the time to create dinner specials, including the very best chile relleno I’ve ever tasted ($12.99). Stuffed with subtly spiced shredded pork and potato, dipped in a feather-light egg batter, fried and served with a judicious amount of both guajillo pepper sauce and queso fundido, this dish should (and hopefully will) become a permanent fixture on the menu of a restaurant that is destined to become a Rochester institution. rochestercitynewspaper.com
MANMADE FOUR LOCAL MALE ARTISTS BROADEN TRADITIONAL STEREOTYPES OF “CRAFTS” FEATURE | BY REBECCA RAFFERTY PHOTOS | BY MATT DETURCK
If the word “craft fair” brings up imagery of all things sweet, delicate, and pretty, with hair clips, jewelry, knittery, and journals, think again. While it may be true that the local-focusing craft markets have been mini-femme fests, lately there has been an increase in male artists mixed in with the gals. The following article features four Rochester-based creator dudes who have been spotted at Rochester’s indie-art fairs, each the makers of fascinating work that transcends the niches from which they arose. Check out the online version of this article at rochestercitynewspaper. com, where you can watch videos of an Amputheatre game in action, as well as cigar-box guitars being played, and view photo slideshows of more of the artwork discussed below.
A trip to the studio of sculptor and illustrator Robert Rogalski in the Hungerford Building yields non-stop wonders. You could spend hours exploring the small space’s minute treasures, and discussing art, culture, politics, and social issues with the sharply critical yet warm and witty artist. Rogalski’s studio is packed to the high ceiling with various projects in progress, shelves showcasing finished works, puppets of various sides and materials, rows of dental tools and toothpicks for precision 10 CITY APRIL 3-9, 2013
detailing, neatly organized fragments of machines and bits of other interest, and a jungle of plants. You’ll find magnificent dollhouses created with astounding detail that evoke both a Hobbit’s home and also the coolest tree house that you never bothered to conceive as a kid. A wide desk holds an army of tiny, expressive faces and fragments of figures, waiting to be pieced together into unique characters. Rogalski’s 5” to 9” figures have character. Often depicted with a retro sci-fi flair, they include ordinary heroes like the serious little crossing guard with an armadillo motif on his hat, who looks like a knight in tarnished armor. Rogalski describes his work as both whimsical and nostalgic, influenced by children’s entertainment of the 1970’s and 1980’s, including Steven Spielberg films and illustrators whose styles were a turn-of-the-century throwback. Rogalski began sculpting at age 12, inspired by stop-motion animation. He studied special effects for film and industrial design the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and today makes work worthy of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop. The artist has illustrated a children’s book, is writing a young-adult adventureepic novel, does freelance illustration, teaches puppet workshops, and has been a featured artist at the Strong National Museum of Play, where his work will

be featured in two more events this fall. Rogalski sells his work out of his studio on First Fridays, and plans to participate in craft fairs and conventions this year. See the work: Suite 222, Hungerford Building, 1115 E. Main St. robertrogalski.com.
The first time I saw Gil Merritt’s
fantastically gruesome Chenille Macabre figurines — made of pipe cleaners, felt, fabric paint, and bits of plastic — I was impressed not only by the creative variety of beasts and humanoids, but also by the clever way he manipulates those unlikely materials into works of highly detailed monster art. He creates six to 10 figures per week, depending on their complexity. Among my favorites are a bipedal anglerfish, a terrifying marsupial rat, and a nightmarish figure with giant tarantulas for hands. There are no good guys, no heroes, Merritt says. The artist draws influence for each creature from horror films, literature, mythologies, and the news. While many people simply lament and complain when they don’t get what they want, Merritt has shrugged and decided to make his own version of it. He began making sculptures with twist ties as a kid, simulating the toys that he wanted, working up to the caliber or figures he’s been creating for the past 10 years. After a video game that he was excitedly anticipating was deemed too violent and cancelled in 1998, he set out to make something in the same vein. As Merritt isn’t a programmer, he decided to make a graphic board game with fighter figures with removable heads and arms, so they could essentially “rip apart.”
What he developed became Amputheatre, which is now patented and has grown in popularity so that there are chapters who play that game in different cities around the nation, and even outside the country. Up to eight people can play at once, taking turns to deal damage to each others’ beastly avatars as they compete for a full government pardon in one of various prison boards. Merritt makes every part of the nowpatented game, from the grid-style boards, to the figures, the weapons, character spec sheets, and the copyrighted rules of the games. But he also takes tips and suggestions from a network of fans who are avid players. The game has its roots in Dungeons & Dragons, says the artist, and it uses 8-, 10-, and 12-sided dice. Though Merritt does recommend the game with a “mature” rating, the fuzzy and funny aspect of the figures make the violence surreal, like in the “Evil Dead” movies. The game might one day be produced en masse, but for now the artist is enjoying its cult success and the homemade aspect of what he does. Merritt works as a design consultant at The Frame Shop in Henrietta, is an announcer for the Roc City Roller Derby, and builds figures for commissions. These have varied from various beasts from Lovecraftian lore, to building a sculpture off of a drawing by a client’s 10-year-old son. Merritt will be a featured artist in a (toned-down) monster show this fall at the Museum of Play. You can play Amputheatre on the third Friday of the month at Millennium Games in Henrietta and on second and fourth Sundays at Pair-A-Dice games in Village Gate. See the work: chenillemacabre.com

I was checking out a holiday craft fair two
years ago at The Yards when from across the room drifted some melodious, blues-y notes from an amplified guitar. Craning my neck over the crowd, Adam Francey and Joe Allgeier became visible, sitting at a table full of handmade instruments under a giant sign that read “MAN CRAFTS.” Their table was swamped, with shoppers of all ages wanting to try their hand at the folk-art cigar-box guitars that produced such stunning sounds. Man Crafts has been in business for about four years now. The duo met at Rochester Institute of Technology, where Allgeier currently works as a technician in 3D design in the Foundations Department of the College of Imaging Arts & Sciences. He has a background in wood and ceramic sculpture, which comes through in the lovely, wood-grain-highlighting lockets and rings he creates for commissions, as well as ceramic wind chimes and whistles. Allgeier also makes carved wood signs for businesses and is working on an inlaid wooden table. Francey studied illustration and fine art painting, and in addition to making Pennsylvania Dutch-inspired folk signs and instruments, he is a tattoo artist at White Tiger Tattoo on Ridge Road. He grew up drawing and playing instruments, and got his start making instruments when
his brother — who owned a cigar shop — turned him on to cigarboxnation.com, an instructional and resource site for the craft. Francey appreciated Allgeier’s craftsmanship, and the two began collaborating on the design of the one-, two-, and three-string instruments they now make. The works aren’t meant to be slick, but homespun, says Francey. When a person spends time playing one, and figures out its quirks, it really becomes theirs. Each instrument is uniquely painted and embellished with bits of metal interest, and has a 24” fret-less board, which works well with the glass slides the pair creates from the necks of old wine bottles. Also popular are the wooden spoon and bottle-cap rattles (which are sharp and meant to be used as instruments, not toys). The guys sell their works online and at craft fairs, and participated in a bluegrass festival in 2010, during which Man Crafts sold many guitars, and the duo says it would have visitors to their tent who wanted to jam well into the evening.

The good, the bad, and the ugly
[ BLUES ]
[ REVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
It was a two-hour rock ’n’ roll slugfest Monday night as Green Day came out swinging to a frenzied and frozen crowd at the Blue Cross arena. Some kids wrapped in blankets had camped out overnight and looked like frostbitten refugees as they stumbled about. The place warmed up and filled up slowly to a meandering set from Los Angeles-based show opener Best Coast. The band wasn’t bad, but sort of forgettable, hitting its plateau early and sticking there for the remainder of its brief set. But no amount of energy could have adequately warmed the boards for Green Day. Following salutations from a drunken Easter Bunny, the band tore out on stage to the theme from “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly” (just like The Ramones) and then ripped into “99 Revolutions.” After that a set cross-cut the band’s incredible catalogue with generous cuts from the new trilogy of discs “Uno!” Dos!” “Tre!” as well as hits off “Kerplunk” and “Dookie.” Green Day is a well-oiled machine and has perfected the extrapolated audienceband call and response, which the band

did constantly Monday night. Look, I know it’s cool to have the crowd sing the words they all know — it’s kind of like being in church without all the guilt — but I came to hear the band sing, not a bunch of maniacs juiced on $10 Blue Cross brew, waving their cell phones. But hey, it was all in loud, fast fun, and the band’s ironic demeanor earns forgiveness and points. I mean, how about that Lynyrd Skynyrd, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, medley from one of the best live bands in the world today? Prior to the Green Day majesty, I prowled the local scene Friday night to see Rock ’N’ Roll Social Club split Tala Vera in two, like the jaws of life, as it loudly and proudly opened for Amanda Lee Peers and The Driftwood Sailors. Peers’ voice is simply incredible, hanging above the shag carpet of a band well-versed in the blue and classic rock. Nothing short of awesome.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3 [ KARAOKE ]
But it’s almost more rewarding to get a little crowd to say, “Wow.” When and why did you start Boneyard?
I founded Boneyard in 2008 to play music that sounded good to me, that included my influences, and that I could sing well. What was the band’s stance on performing covers?
It’s one thing to throw in a cover because you want to. But I never did because I felt I had to. I wouldn’t do it. What did you set out to do with Boneyard?
Get out there and make it in this business. I’ve come close a couple of times with different bands and thought I was on to something. Have you ever considered hanging it up?
I did for a year, but that didn’t work out. I realized soon that music is my passion and I kept coming back to it. I’ve never been one to have a back-up plan. I’ve got all my eggs in this basket. That may not get me far sometimes. So you’re not cut for the 9-to-5 world?
Although he briefly gave up music for the 9-to-5 world, local artist JJ Lang is back with a new group, and an upcoming performance at the Indie Music Channel Awards in L.A. PHOTO PROVIDED
Big voice, big drive JJ Lang REVERBNATION.COM/JJLANG [ INTERVIEW ] BY BY FRANK DE BLASE
We all remember our first time. Some persuading, a little awkward fumbling, bated breath, high expectations, followed by a sense of elation and perhaps an apology. And for once I’m not talking about paradise by the dashboard light. I’m talking about a guitar riff. Rochester musician JJ Lang remembers his first. It was played on a $40 Harmony guitar. He was 18. The now 41-year-old Lang hasn’t looked back since. Lang is a powerful musician in the hardrock vein with a soaring voice of stratospheric range. No joke — in the entire electric church of singers, shouters, wailers, and howlers, Lang is one of the best. Yet the man is dogged by his own standards and a relentless drive, he holds the stick from which the carrot dangles. In Lang’s quest for success in this merciless trade, 14 CITY APRIL 3-9. 2013
he focuses on the perks that spell success. It’s the music that matters, and he knows this. But he needs to be reminded that he is a success. I mean, have you heard the cat sing? Lang formed the heavy-hitting Boneyard in 2008 but left late last year when, he says, priorities within the band shifted. Not missing a beat, he put together the equally hard-rocking JJ Lang Band. The Indie Music Channel got wind of the big man with the even bigger pipes and lo Lang was nominated for four awards, and has been asked to perform at the Indie Music Channel Awards Ceremony April 28 at The House Of Blues in Los Angeles. Lang recently talked with City to discuss it all — his frustration, his satisfaction, his success. Below is an edited transcript of what was said. CITY: Is there one moment you recall that solidified your drive? An epiphany? JJ LANG: There are a few. From playing a
packed house, like opening for The Cult in front of 2000 people. Or even driving four or five hours to play in front of three or four people, but you still move those three or four people.
Let’s face it, I’m a musician. Who wants to work when you can sing? It’s a lot harder being away from it. When I’m in a 9-to-5 job I can’t turn my brain off, all I’m thinking about is getting out and singing. I’ll be singing in my truck and be like, “That sounds great. Why am I here?” You’re an extremely talented musician. If knowing that isn’t enough, what’s it going to take to shut you up and make you happy?
Somebody once told me I had a voice for an arena. When I ‘m there — and it’s full — I know that I’m good, and I write good songs, and I have good musicians in the band. But I also know how limited I am with my guitar playing, and I’m very lucky to have people who can deal with my drive over the years. But there’s a good chance you’ll never be satisfied.
I think about that. Then I think about how I was almost happy sitting on a stool with an acoustic at a local bar making $100. When I left Boneyard I said, “I want to be in a working band, with a tour bus or a van, at a 500-person venue, working and touring.” I’ve got an acoustic cover project called LowDown. It’s rewarding, I was making money and still singing, keeping my chops up. And just when I thought it might be enough, Chris Ewing from the Indie Music Channel pops in and says, “No, no, no. You’ve got to do your own songs.” And that reminded me of what I believe in.

HIP HOP/RAP | GZA
Wu-Tang Clan’s lyrical master, GZA — “The Genius” — is considered one of the best lyricists in hip-hop. Amidst a misunderstood and much maligned genre, Wu-Tang emerged out of Staten Island in the early 1990’s. It’s GZA’s unapologetic turn of phrase and the group’s bold, eccentric-laden stance that has rags like Rolling Stone calling it “the best rap group ever.” Ratking, Lucky Labrats, and H.E.X.X. share the bill. GZA performs Saturday, April 6, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $18-$20. waterstreetmusic.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE Ave. 730-8230. 9 p.m. Call for info.

CLASSICAL | JACK QUARTET
OK, so here’s the deal. You like classical, as in Bach? JACK. You lean toward the wild side with Cage? JACK. You dig string musicians with a top-button-open attitude and some ridiculous technical skills? JACK. And I’m not talking cheese. This is the quartet that proves new music soars to a new level when you have the proper classical training to execute what modern composers create out of our complex, modern world. The JACK Quartet is playing in the intimate Hatch Recital Hall, which means both superior acoustics and a sell-out show. Get your tickets as quickly as you can spell…you got it: JACK. The JACK Quartet performs Wednesday, April 10, 8 p.m. at Hatch Recital Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs St. $10-$20, discounts to UR ID holders. 2741000, esm.rochester.edu. — BY PALOMA CAPANNA

ROCK | MEAT PUPPETS
What’s that hackneyed quip about a third time? Well, it applies here. The Meat Puppets have broken up twice in the band’s 30-plus years. Formed in 1980 in Phoenix, Arizona, the band remained quasi-underground on SST Records until it was asked to join Nirvana on stage for its legendary “MTV Unplugged” performance in 1993. Its latest album is the 2013 release “Rat Farm.” The World Takes and The Cringe open. Meat Puppets performs Saturday, April 6, 7 p.m. at the Club @ Water Street, 204 N.

Rochester’s own John Gallo and his band, Orodruin, played an enormous role in the early 2000’s renaissance of traditional doom metal, a genre that owes its murky existence to bands like Black Sabbath and Pentagram. Nowadays, Gallo (guitar, synth/organ, bass, vocals) and fellow Rochesterians Mark Rapone (bass) and Mike Waske (drums) perform under the moniker Blizaro. The stormy trio loves horror movies and working in record stores, and both interests inform the band’s sound. Thick, chugging guitars ripping through classic-rock chord progressions are combined with wailing, Zappa-like orchestration and white-hot solos that would make Tommy Iommi proud. Add a touch of prog-goth synth, some dark stage antics, and the eyes of a newt, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for disaster. Big Brain and the Drug Cartel and Glass also perform. Blizaro performs Friday, April 5, 6 p.m. at Tala Vera, 155 State St. $3-$5. 546-3845, tala-vera.com. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR. Karaoke at Mayfield’s Pub . Mayfield’s Pub, 669 N

Dance See the music, hear the dance Vision of Sound SATURDAY, APRIL 6 HOCHSTEIN SCHOOL OF MUSIC AND DANCE, 50 N. PLYMOUTH AVE. 7:30 P.M. | $10-$15 | BIODANCE.ORG [ PREVIEW ] BY CASEY CARLSEN
Vision of Sound is the name of the dance and music concert featuring eclectic regional dancers and musicians, taking place this weekend at Hochstein School of Music and Dance. It is Artistic Director Mark Olivieri’s vision to eventually transform the annual collaboration into an actual company. “We have a core of musicians. We have a core of dancers. It’s already basically already its own thing,” Olivieri says. “Every year the performance grows and we perform in more places. This year the concert is being presented in four different places in the state, including New York City.” The concert also took place in Syracuse in March, and will be performed Sunday, April 7, at Hamilton College in Clinton. Rochester dance aficionados will be familiar with some of the concert’s performers. The choreographers are Falon Baltzell, Stephanie Dattellas, Eran David P. Hanlon, Heather Roffe, Missy Pfohl Smith, and Cheryl Wilkins Mitchell. Composers are Jesse Benjamin Jones, Nicholas Omiccioli, Mark Olivieri, Sam Pellman, Nicolas Scherzinger, and Zhou Tian. Neva Pilgrim is also artistic director. “What’s unique about Vision of Sound is that not only are regional artists in dance and music introduced to one another, but they are also both premiering new work in four locations across New York State. It is uncommon for such a wide audience to have the opportunity to witness such a diverse collection of creative energy in two genres, with multiple companies and voices on one stage,” says Missy Pfohl Smith, one of the show’s choreographers. Smith is also the director of the Program of Dance and Movement at the University of Rochester, and founder and artistic director of Rochester-based contemporary dance company BIODANCE. BIODANCE is distinguished by the exploration of social, political, and environmental issues in Smith’s accomplished choreography. 20 CITY APRIL 3-9, 2013
In Vision of Sound, the dances of six
choreographers are paired with the music of six composers. The musicians — who perform live — are all from the Society for New Music, also directed by Olivieri, and funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. Now in its sixth year at the Hochstein venue and its seventh year of being presented in Rochester, Vision of Sound was recently classified as a non-for-profit organization. Olivieri is also assistant director of music at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Before that he spent eight years as composer-in-residence Local company BIODANCE will perform as part of the music-dance in the Department of collaboration Vision of Sound this weekend.

Olivieri defines post-modern as, “a blurring music. She described it for City last week. “It’s a manifestation of the visual of the distinction between high art and harmony and representations of mirroring popular culture,” he says. “What is considered concert music anymore?

DANCE | DANCE/STRASSER AND BHARATA UTSAV
Dance students have a few advantages over the average academic crowd. They have workshops and rehearsals instead of writing assignments and recitations. They can work out to relieve stress and be doing their work at the same time. They also get to display their final projects to eager and excited audiences — which can’t exactly be said for research papers and blue book exams. This week, you have two opportunities to see what local dance students have been working on throughout the school year. The DANCE/Strasser show at SUNY Brockport features select choreography from undergraduate and graduate students in the college’s Department of Dance. Each dance comes to the stage after a rigorous process of faculty critiquing and judging. The show features “Clean This Up and Tie a Pretty Bow on it,” an MFA thesis from grad student Elizabeth Osborn, as well as Justin Bass’ “Vibe,” Christine Benincasa’s “Prism Dream Fragments,” and several other duets and group dances. DANCE/Strasser runs at 7:30 p.m. nightly from Thursday, April 4, through Saturday, April 6, in the Rose L. Strasser Studio in the campus’ Hartwell Hall (Kenyon Street, Brockport). Tickets are $15 for general admission, $10 for seniors, Brockport alumni, faculty, and staff, and $8 for students, and can be purchased at the Tower Fine Arts Center Box Office on campus or by calling 395-2787. For more information, go to brockport.edu/finearts. Students at the Bharata School of Indian Dance and Music will present the 12th annual UTSAV recital on Sunday, April 7. This year’s recital features “Rhythm of the Bells,” a selection of Indian classical dance and fusion performances, and Salangai Pooja, the annual presentation of works from Bharata’s graduating students.

FESTIVAL | EROTIC ARTS FESTIVAL
What’s your fetish? Do you like biting, or stripping, or role play, or simply being tied up every once in a while? No matter what your sexual preference, this weekend’s Rochester Erotic Arts Festival has only one requirement: that you like doing it in public. On Friday, April 5, and Saturday, April 6, at the Radisson Riverside Hotel (120 E. Main St.), you can get your freak on with two full days of super sexy art, workshops, dances, and other titillating activities. Friday’s festivities include a Bombshell Bellydance, a Pretty Kitties Burlesque dance, a fire massage, and classes about the swinger life, role play, and the secrets of sex muscles. If you’re feeling up for another round, you can come again on Saturday for more dirty dances and wild workshops, as well as cardio stripping, a tattoo contest, artistic piercings, and more. On both days of the festival, there will also be an erotic art show and sale, and special demos and workshops from suspension artist and featured guest Lew Rubens. The Erotic Arts Festival runs Friday 7 p.m.-midnight and Saturday noon-8 p.m. Tickets are $25 per day at the door, which pays for admission and all workshops. Advance two-day tickets are available for $40 through rochestereroticartfest.org, where you can also feast your eyes on the full schedule of festival events and times.

THEATER | EASTMAN OPERA THEATRE “STREET SCENE”
Fans of American musical theater, opera, and drama will enjoy this week’s offering from Eastman Opera Theatre. Composer Kurt Weill blended traditional opera and musical theater in “Street Scene,” which is based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name by Elmer Rice, who wrote the opera’s libretto with iconic poet Langston Hughes.
The complete print edition • Link to speciﬁc pages • Clickable weblinks
The story follows the lives of a group of New York City tenement residents, depicting their problems, conflicts, hopes, and frustrations over two sultry days. “Weill employed a variety of musical elements from jazz, blues, big band, Italian opera, and Wagnerian orchestral works to reflect the multi-ethnic inhabitants of the brownstone apartment building,” per the press release.
“Street Scene” will be presented in Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre (26 Gibbs St.) on Thursday, April 4-Saturday, April 6, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 7, at 2 p.m. Pre-performance lectures will be given one hour before the start of the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday performances in the Ray Wright Room (Room 120) in the Eastman School of Music.
Tickets to the production are $15-$35 (discounts available with UR ID), and can be reserved at the Eastman Theatre Box Office (433 E.

THEATER | “WICKED”
Acclaimed author and artist Gregory Maguire has built his career on the idea that there is always another side to the official story. Maguire has written several books in which he explores the perspectives not considered — those of the supposed antagonists — in many popular stories. His twists on classic tales include “Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister,” “Mirror, Mirror,” and his first, and arguably most popular, “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West,” for which he has written three sequels. Broadway’s award-winning, record-breaking blockbuster, “Wicked,” is based on Maguire’s book, and will return to Rochester’s Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) this week. The show opens on Wednesday, April 3, at 7:30 p.m., and continues through April 21. Show times this week are Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 & 8 p.m., and Sunday at 1 & 6:30 p.m. An additional matinee on Thursday, April 4, will take place at 1 p.m. Tickets begin at $37.50.

SPECIAL EVENT | JAMES IVORY AT THE DRYDEN
It’s been a month since the Dryden Theatre returned from its renovation hiatus, but the theater is still celebrating its grand reopening in style. Oscar-nominated filmmaker and George Eastman Honorary Scholar James Ivory (pictured) will be the Dryden’s latest guest of honor when he presents his 1995 film, “Jefferson in Paris,” on Saturday, April 6. The 84-year-old Ivory, who has directed more than 30 films and earned three Academy Award nominations for best director, will introduce “Jefferson in Paris,” which chronicles the much-speculated affairs that the pre-presidency Thomas Jefferson had when he lived in France. Ivory will stay after the screening for an audience Q&A. To commemorate Ivory’s visit, the Dryden will also screen films from Merchant Ivory Productions every Wednesday in April. The Dryden’s Merchant Ivory screenings include “Mr. and Mrs. Bridge” on April 3, “Roseland” on April 10, “Maurice” on April 17, and “The Householder” on April 24. Tickets for the “Jefferson in Paris” screening and Q&A are $12 for general admission and $10 for students, and can be purchased in advance at the Dryden Theatre (900 East Ave.) or online through eastmanhouse.org. Tickets for all other Merchant Ivory films are $8 general admission and $6 for students, and will be sold at the door on the night of the screenings. All films start at 8 p.m. For more information and the rest of the Dryden’s upcoming screenings, go to dryden. eastmanhouse.org. — BY JASON SILVERSTEIN Lounge, Wilson Commons firstname.lastname@example.org. rochester.edu.

On beyond “Twilight” [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“The Host” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY ANDREW NICCOL NOW PLAYING
The millions of fans of Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” novels and the execrable film series based on them should take great pleasure in the release of “The Host,” the new movie adapted from another of her works. Like the jazz musician who said that after hearing Lawrence Welk he’d have to rethink Guy Lombardo, this picture should make any viewer reflect on the vampire saga. It is so thoroughly awful that it makes those immensely popular flicks look like “Citizen Kane.”

Although no vampires darken the brightly sunlit scenes and sequences of “The Host,” a somewhat similar concept — the notion of some extra-human force preying on mankind — drives the picture’s plot. As an introductory voice-over explains, an alien force has invaded the Earth, transforming its people and cultures into a benign paradise, eliminating conflict, selfishness, violence, want, and all the negative elements that define the world as we know it. The aliens travel from some distant galaxy, feeding off other beings; they exist as what they call Souls, tangles of brilliant filaments stored in silvery clamshells that they insert into their hosts. Once they take over the bodies, the people they inhabit stare out of bright blue pupils, the only identifying mark. They also dress entirely in white and tool around in snazzy sport cars, so that the males look rather like Good Humor men with routes in an upscale neighborhood. The Souls capture the protagonist, Melanie (Saoirse Ronan), who initially tries to kill herself to escape them,

and insert a personality called Wanderer (later shortened to Wanda) into her neck. Melanie’s will is so strong, however, that she fights the presence of Wanderer, leading to an ongoing internal dialogue between the two identities that achieves a level of annoyance rarely encountered in the history of the cinema. The internal struggle leads Melanie/Wanda to steal a car, flee to the desert, and eventually link up with a group of actual humans who dwell in caves in an extinct volcano. Their hostility to the presence of an alien almost leads to murder, but Jeb (William Hurt), the kindly patriarch of the group, believes her story of duality and protects her from some mean members of the community. Melanie reconnects with her old boyfriend Jared (Max Irons), while her Wanda personality falls in love with another young man. What’s a girl to do? Those complications add to the really remarkable silliness of the entire movie. The aliens, led by an uncharacteristically angry commander called Seeker (Diane Kruger), naturally continue to search for Melanie, which leads to several car chases and gun battles between the humans and the hosts. The relentless Seeker refuses to allow even one human to escape the power of the Souls, an attitude that stems from some of the same conditions that exist in Melanie and ultimately solves some of the human problems. Although its situation somewhat resembles the classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers”

Broken action figures [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW
“G.I. Joe: Retaliation” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY JON M. CHU NOW PLAYING
“Yoyo” (NR), DIRECTED BY PIERRE ÉTAIX SCREENS TUESDAY, APRIL 9, AT THE DRYDEN
and its excellent sequel, “The Host” lacks the energy, the intelligence, and the sense of menace of those pictures. The bland paradise it creates ultimately seems more comical than threatening: when Melanie/Wanda commandeers a stranger’s car, he willingly gives it up, tells her that it is a very reliable vehicle (a Volvo of course), with a full tank of gas. Everybody acts so sweetly in this sterile paradise that the humans even regularly raid supermarkets for supplies while the unsuspecting aliens smile happily at them and charge them nothing. For an allegedly exciting science-fiction flick, “The Host” simply overflows with banal dialogue and, predictably, juvenile emotionalism. Stephenie Meyer creates amazingly insipid characters, and directors choose appropriately insipid actors to play them, providing the movie with a kind of bizarre perfection; like the “Twilight,” series it is remarkably depressing and really difficult to endure for the two hours it requires. The only interesting performer in the whole work is Diane Kruger, lithe, shapely, and blond, who exhibits an antiseptic sexiness in her tight white outfits, an unusual Soul Seeker indeed. Quite simply, “The Host” is one of the worst motion pictures I have ever seen, the sort of thing that distresses even a devoted critic and inspires a fan of some wonderfully bad flicks to think new thoughts about the art.
Continuing the recent trend of major studios handing over the reins of their established action franchises to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (see: the most recent “Fast and the Furious” films and its upcoming sequels),“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” the follow-up to 2009’s “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” allows the former professional wrestler to take over as lead after Channing Tatum’s character from the first film, Duke, is unceremoniously killed off. Unfortunately, the addition of Johnson doesn’t make this film any less forgettable than its predecessor. But if you were a fan of the first film, “Retaliation” delivers more of the same competently staged mindless action. The film is an odd mix of continuing storylines from the original film now acted out by an almost entirely new

set of characters. Johnson’s character is supposedly the best friend of Duke, but was never once mentioned in the last movie, and the script doesn’t even bother to come up with an explanation. On the plus side, the always lovely Adrianne Palicki (“Friday Night Lights”) plays Lady Jaye, who fills the role of lone female member of the Joes this time around. The nonsensical plot picks up with the big cliffhanger that ended the last film, where we learned that the President of the United States has been replaced by an imposter: Zartan, arch-nemesis of the Joes. Apparently Zartan’s been doing an OK job of it, since no one’s noticed anything out of the ordinary. For clearly nefarious purposes, the imposter president sends the Joes off on a mission to Pakistan to locate some nuclear weapons. Of course the mission is a set-up, and Zartan stages a massive attack on the Joe camp, blowing the team sky high and leaving them for dead. Three members manage to survive: Roadblock (Johnson), now the team’s de facto leader; Lady Jaye; and Flint (D.J. Cotrona, “Dear John”), who sure is pretty, but I’m utterly at a loss to come up with a single other defining characteristic for him. They manage to make their way back to America, and the stage is set for some good ol’ retaliation. Johnson is significantly less interesting here than he was a few weeks back in “Snitch,” but to be fair, “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” doesn’t feature particularly strong performances from anyone in the cast. There’s not even a performance as enjoyable as Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s hammy scenery chewing from the first film. Still, I suppose the actors do an admirable job considering that they’re literally playing action figures. Taking over directing duties is Jon M. Chu, the man behind “Step Up 3D” and “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,”
and he does manage to deliver one great action set piece about halfway through the movie: a lengthy fight scene in which at least a dozen ninjas do battle while zip lining down the side of the Himalayan mountains. It’s impeccably staged and without question the best part of the movie. One of the most exciting programs at the Dryden Theatre this month is the currently ongoing series focusing on the comedic films of French director, Pierre Étaix. Having directed only five films and a small number of shorts, the director has remained one of the lesser-known filmmakers of the French New Wave. Étaix’s films have faded into relative obscurity over the years, sadly unseen since their release due to legal tangles. But having recently undergone an intensive restoration process, the films have been screening in art houses across the country before being released next month in a snazzy Criterion box set. The second film to be screened as part of the Dryden series, and definitely the highlight, “Yoyo” is a delightfully elaborate homage to silentfilm comedies, à la 2011’s “The Artist.” Drawing on Étaix’s own background as a circus clown, the film tells an epic decade-spanning story of a jazz-age millionaire (played by Étaix), the circus performer he’s fallen in love with, and their son (also Étaix), who grows up to be a famous clown himself. Étaix’s film may be light on dialogue, but it’s heavy on inventively silly sight gags, physical comedy and is filled with boundless joy. “Yoyo” is preceded by Étaix’s charming short film, “Happy Anniversary,” in which a husband is determined to make it home on time for an anniversary dinner with his wife, despite facing several unexpected setbacks.

Proudly serving the Rochester area.
Cozy & Charming in Charlotte 129 Penrose Street Look at this darling house and ponder with some smugness what one like it might cost in Boston or San Francisco or Westchester County. Then remind yourself how it’s possible in Rochester to get a terrific older house, well maintained and in a neighborhood and city with more than plenty of culture, nature and recreation, for just $94,900. The jovial house at 129 Penrose Street in the Charlotte neighborhood, celebrating its 90th birthday this year, is the kind of place that will keep you in a good mood; it’s a lively abode with quirks and nooks and a profusion of perennial gardens adding to the interior’s Craftsman style coziness. Downstairs is a spacious living room with handsome hardwood floors and dark trim, and a wood-burning fireplace. Step from here into a perfect study/office that could almost qualify as a greenhouse for all the windows; it also features an original built-in day bed, shelving and drawers. The dining room--also with generous windows--opens via French doors to another window-laden room, aptly called a ‘sun room’. The kitchen harmonizes traditional (wainscoting) and modern (island, trendy stainless steel-style fridge) elements that join with jolly colors and bright white countertops. From the kitchen you can access a lovely patio, yard, and deck— together forming an alluring enclave ideal for entertaining or for cocooning yourself with a book and a beverage. Also available from the kitchen is a cute, convenient little half bath.
Upstairs you’ll find a sizable master bedroom— once two bedrooms—that boasts four windows. A second bedroom is smaller but still ample enough for a large bed and some furniture. The tidy master bathroom is also up here. The yard is contained by a low fence with sturdy front and back gates. Outside the back gate is the driveway and detached one-car garage. The garage, like the rest of the place, is adorable. A clean basement houses the laundry center and some decent storage space. This 1,748 square foot gem sits on its 50’ x 100’ lot one block from the Lake Avenue artery. Just a two-mile drive, bike ride, hike, or bus ride is Ontario Beach Park and all the food and fun of the lakefront district--an area of town that’s just going to get better and better. But when winter wallops the lakefront and Abbott’s frozen custard at the shore is the furthest thing from your mind, you’ll have the coziest house in the Charlotte neighborhood to hole up in. To have a look at 129 Penrose, contact Nothnagle’s Leif Mermagen at 585-576-9406. To see more pictures, go to rochestercityliving. com/property/R197543.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
— Being identified with the number 666 (the “mark of the beast” in the Bible’s Book of Revelation) continues to trouble the righteous. Walter Slonopas, 52, felt required to resign as a maintenance worker for Contech Casting in Clarksville, Tenn., in February after receiving his W-2 form, which he noted was the 666th mailed out by Contech this year. (However, perhaps Slonopas is not so innocent. He had been working for Contech for less than two years, yet had already been “assigned” the number 666 twice -- on the company’s payroll books and the company’s time-clock system.) — The Iconic Phantom Black/Hispanic Perpetrator: In February, victims of crimes in San Antonio, Texas, and Terrebonne Parish, La., complained to police that they had been assaulted by, respectively, a “Hispanic male” and an “unknown black man” -- whom the victims admitted later did not exist. San Antonio police learned that their victim had been accidentally, embarrassingly, shot by a friend mishandling his gun. Louisiana authorities found that their victim had not been abducted and raped (and had her baby stolen). Rather, she had wanted to hide her miscarriage from family and friends and invented a phantom attack as more acceptable. — Chinese New Year, especially, turns out not so festive if busy young professional women are unable to show off a boyfriend to their parents. Thus, men offer themselves as fake boyfriends for the equivalent of about $50 a day, plus extras including about $5 an hour to accompany the woman to dinner, $8 for a kiss on the cheek, and $95 to spent the night -- on the couch, of course, since “sex” is not part of the concept. Recently, a reality TV series appeared
for men needing women for home visits -- often they are gay men who have not “come out” to their parents. — Backward Incentives: Society continues to suffer from questionable company policies that encourage precisely the wrong behaviors. Bartender Twyla DeVito said she knew that one of her regulars at the American Legion Post in Shelby, Ohio, was too inebriated to drive home and thus telephoned police, alerting them to a potential drunk driver. An officer responded, observed the driver, and arrested him when his blood-alcohol read twice the limit for presumed impairment. Two days later DeVito was fired because, as her boss allegedly said to her, “(I)t’s bad for business to have a bartender that will call the cops.” — The Fabulous British Government “Safety Net”: Heather Frost, 36, and mother of 11, is getting a brand-new, specially designed house through the Tewkesbury (England) Borough Council, which deemed inadequate the duplex that the family had been using at taxpayer expense for five years. Frost had complained that she needed larger quarters because one daughter now owns a horse and needs to stable it (and, said a stable worker, had almost acquired two more horses, but that deal fell through). — More Poor Planning: (1) In San Diego, Calif., in February, two people broke into a Hooters after closing and stole a jukebox, apparently, said police, mistaking it for an ATM inside the darkened restaurant. (2) Jose Perales Jr., 24, was charged with breaking into Dr. John’s Lingerie Boutique in Davenport, Iowa, in February. Surveillance video revealed he was wearing men’s clothing when he entered, but left in a dress and blond wig. In fact, while changing clothes, his bare back was visible, revealing “Perales” tattooed on his shoulder.
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 29 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep your emotions in check when dealing with potential partners. Appearing to be too much trouble or emotionally unstable will push a good candidate in the opposite direction. Bide your time and do everything in your power to be fun. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll attract partners unlikely to share status or intentions. Don’t let your heart play tricks on you. Either the person you want to be with wants to be with you or not. Ask questions and find out exactly where you stand before you decide to become intimate.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your involvement in events, activities or causes of choice will result in meeting someone just as eager as you are to share your interests. Don’t hesitate to make the first move. Opportunity knocks, and it’s up to you to take advantage of what’s available. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may be attracted to someone off-limits. Don’t mix business with pleasure. Allow more time to get to know someone who interests you. Showing your serious side and being completely honest regarding your personal goals will attract someone who doesn’t have any say in your professional reputation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Get involved in short trips, courses, socializing or anything else you enjoy doing, and you will attract someone special. Love at first sight is in the stars and can change your life instantly if you let your heart lead the way. Only word of caution: Keep your finances separate. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Get out and have some fun, but don’t expect the people you encounter along the way to give you an accurate view of who or what’s being offered. Empty promises and disillusionment based on someone’s boasting is likely to lead to disappointment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have plenty of opportunity when it comes to a serious relationship. Rely on past experience and consider reuniting with someone you miss. Chances are good that the timing was wrong in the past and you are both in a better position to make it work now. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Listen to your intuition. Don’t let what someone has be what holds your interest. Look for truth, honesty and how you influence one another, not what you can supply one another monetarily. Everything else will fall into place if you have a good understanding and lots of love.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t listen to what anyone tells you. Follow your heart and find out firsthand how well suited you are to the person you feel drawn to. The more you share with someone mentally, physically and emotionally, the greater the chance you will endure the test of time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t let someone’s uncertainty be disconcerting. Know when to move on, and you will find exactly what you are looking for. Stability, security and a deep trust and love will enable you to excel in every aspect of life. Walk away from anyone offering a roller coaster ride.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Love and romance are in the stars. Attending a reunion or taking part in something that will help you hone your skills or expand your interests will lead to someone equally as innovative, inventive and in need of a little experimental closeness as you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Speak up if you want to explore possibilities with someone who is in your life for reasons other than personal. Make plans that will take you outside your normal setting and put you on even ground, allowing you to see past the facade that your current surroundings enforce.
