360 | 365 George Eastman House Film Fest It’s more than a little mind-blowing that 10 years have flown by since 2001’s inaugural High Falls Film Festival, originally conceived to honor Rochester’s unique place in the histories of both film and women’s rights. The past decade has seen HF3, as it was affectionately known back then, morph into what is now called the 360 | 365 George Eastman House Film Festival. The 2011 version goes down April 27-May 2, with 21 countries represented by the 100 or so films — narrative and documentary, full-length and funsized — that will be flickering upon screens at four separate venues around town.

One constant throughout the festival’s various incarnations has been the Susan B. Anthony “Failure Is Impossible” Award; this year the honor goes to director Julie Taymor, who most recently hit theaters with her gender-bent take on Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” but is probably best known for her Tonywinning stage adaptation of “The Lion King.” Other 2011 honorees are Ken Burns’ cinematographer Buddy Squires, as well as “Cannonball Run” screenwriter Brock Yates, who currently resides in Wyoming County.

Losing Brizard So here we are again, looking for a new superintendent for Rochester’s schools. This is not happening at a good time. In addition to tragically low student achievement, the district has a big — and contested — budget gap, a massive capital improvement program struggling to get off the ground, contentious employee contract negotiations, numerous “reform” efforts in the works, controversial school closings under way, internal audits portraying the district’s central operations as an undisciplined mess, and a school board that is sometimes dismayingly fractious. Now the school board must agree on an interim superintendent, find a permanent leader, close out the contract with JeanClaude Brizard (on which the ink is barely dry), and approve a new budget. (Oh… and four of the seven board members will be running for another term.) Given all that, there’s a very real danger that the need to confront the district’s biggest challenge — concentrated poverty — will get buried even deeper in the public consciousness. If the community, the full, wide community, doesn’t deal with this, the best superintendent in the nation won’t be able to accomplish much. But acknowledging the challenge of concentrated poverty doesn’t relieve any of us from insisting on excellence in the school district. I don’t think excellence can happen without dramatic change. And some of that change may not be popular. So what will happen to reform, which Brizard was hired to bring about? In this chaotic period, how will the district achieve even moderate success, let alone strive for excellence? What will the school board look for in a new superintendent? Another Brizard? Or his antithesis? Will Brizard’s short stay make school board members wary of ambitious candidates, willing to settle for less than the best? What does the school board want, besides “better student achievement”? Which of the Brizard initiatives does it want continued? Will it look for a superintendent who will push for their completion? Or a superintendent who will come with a new set of ideas? What if a minority of board members objects to the next person hired? Will they try to obstruct that person as some did Brizard? And what about the unions, whose opposition contributed to Brizard’s leaving? Both the school board and the teachers union have said that the status quo is unacceptable. Union leaders say they

In this chaotic period, how will the Rochester school district achieve even moderate success, let alone strive for excellence?” support reform if it’s collaborative. So here’s an irreverent question: Can there be such a thing as collaborative reform? I know: The teachers union will point to the 1987 Rochester Reform as a glowing example of collaborative reform. But not all of the ’87 reforms have lived up to their promise. Is the district’s concentrated poverty the only reason? What if the next superintendent wants principals to have more authority than the teachers union likes? What if the next superintendent wants to do away with tenure and seniority rules? (And what is the school board’s position on this?) What if the next superintendent wants union contracts to include merit pay? (And what is the school board’s position on this?) What if the new superintendent, like Brizard, supports expansion of charter schools? (And what is the school board’s position on this?) I have thought that Brizard was a good superintendent: bright, talented, determined, energetic, and visionary. But he isn’t perfect. And maybe his resignation is a positive move, for all of us. Maybe the teachers union was right, that the divide was simply too deep. It’s hard to be an effective manager if employees don’t respect you. Besides, what’s done is done. On we go. And by the way, now we can have an experiment. Brizard will be working in a district with mayoral control, under a notoriously strong mayor and a school board appointed by that mayor. And Rochester will attempt to get dramatic improvements without mayoral control. The school board, the unions, and many parents insist that the current system can give Rochester’s children the education they deserve, but that hasn’t happened yet. It’s time to show that it can, yes?

As families across our region struggle to pay their bills and feed their families, Republicans in Monroe County have given the highest-paid county employees hefty pay raises. There are roughly 400 Management and Professionals employees in county government, of whom many are political appointees, department heads and middle management, who will benefit from this unseemly largesse. At the same time, we’ve seen low-level employees laid off or forced into early retirement, threatening their ability to survive in an unstable economy. In light of the current economic crisis, these taxpayer-funded pay hikes are simply unconscionable. To address this situation, we recently introduced legislation to freeze the pay of these employees at the 2010 levels — which would save county taxpayers approximately $400,000 this year alone. Most of these employees received a 2.5 percent raise in 2011, in addition to the same increase in 2010. Over the past two years, it’s very unlikely that most taxpayers

have seen their pay increase by 5 percent. Worse still, some highly connected political appointees will receive significantly more than a 2.5 percent pay raise. There is no good reason to keep these pay hikes in place when so many taxpayers are struggling to make ends meet. We are simply asking for these employees to minimally share in the sacrifices that so many people are making by maintaining their pay at 2010 salaries. While the county executive and Republican legislators say additional pay hikes are needed, we disagree, especially at a time when the county is cutting services and laying off other, non-political, employees. During the 2011 budget debate, Democratic legislators offered an amendment to freeze these salaries at the 2010 level, but this measure was rejected by Republicans without debate. We have now offered stand-alone legislation to enact the freeze at the 2010 pay level, and we certainly hope our Republican colleagues will join us in supporting this measure. There is simply no justification for keeping these raises in place when families in our community are burdened by crippling property taxes, the threat of an uncertain future, and a looming budgetary crunch. Now is the time to act on this common-sense legislation. SAUL MANEIRO, ROCHESTER; JOSH BAUROTH, ROCHESTER

Maneiro is the county legislator for the 29th district; Bauroth is legislator for the 24th district.

Taxes and a fair share

The writer of the letter “Socialism and Extinction” (The Mail, March 2) feels that since he is a “start-up business man,” he should be exempt from paying his fair share of taxes. It’s odd that he chose GE as his example, in light of the news reports the last several weeks that GE made $6 billion in profits and paid no taxes, and they still want to cut their workforce. Thirty years after Ronald Reagan put the country’s richest people and corporations on the tax gravy train, we have record budget deficits and record unemployment. The letter writer fails to mention that there is a big difference between corporate tax liability and what corporations actually pay. The writer thinks state and teachers-union employees’ wages are “exorbitant.” I can

tell him as an ex-state employee myself that 80 percent of them earn less than $45,000 a year; they pay a percentage of their biweekly wages and doctor co-pays for health care, and most pay 4 percent of their yearly income to retirement benefits. These people also pay taxes like everyone else. That means they pay a portion of their wages back so that they can get paid again. If this person required his employees to do that, he would be breaking the law. If you do the math, the Republicans and Tea Party candidates that were elected to office in November were elected by only 25 percent of registered voters. That certainly is not a mandate to shred social programs and attack the wages of the middle class and the poor. ED AUSTIN, ALBION

Stop the ads for medication

Here’s an idea that might drastically reduce health-care costs currently paid by Medicare and Medicaid: Restore the ban on advertising prescription drugs! The US is one of only two countries that permit this outrage, and it creates an unreasonable demand for mostly feel-good medications, medications that might be ineffective and possibly dangerous. Sure, they all contain warnings about potential side effects, but just try to read the small print or listen to the fast-paced jargon that would do credit to a tobacco auctioneer. These powerful messages lead the gullible to press their doctor to write prescriptions and prompt the doctor to accede to the request. Rumors abound about the incentives that the pharmaceuticals dangle in front of the providers. Any attempt to legislate this reform would, of course, be vigorously opposed by the various lobbies — the same lobbies that persuaded Congress to repeal the ban years ago. I would venture a guess that the cost of advertising is a major part of the expense for these giants. Isn’t restoring the ban worth a try? TOM POWERS, ROCHESTER

Farewell to McCurdy’s

RIT hosts windpower conference

The full-scale demolition of the old McCurdy’s department store is under way on the Midtown Plaza site. McCurdy’s was one of Midtown’s anchor retail stores. The plaza opened in 1962 and demolition began in September 2010, though much of the work wasn’t visible from the street. About nine acres will be shovel-ready for development once demolition is complete.

Comptroller wants to rein in LDC use

The State Comptroller’s Office issued a report outlining the ways that municipalities misuse LDCs and LLCs, including an example each from Monroe County and the City of Rochester. The report cites the Rochester Ferry Corporation to show the perils of government backing not-for-profit operations, and Monroe Newpower to show how governments can use LDCs to get debt off of their books. Comptroller Tom DiNapoli used the report to push a reform agenda, which includes laws that are more specific about what LDCs can be used for, and legislation that would let the Comptroller’s Office audit LDCs.

Richards’ wake-up call

Mayor Tom Richards struck a sober tone in his inaugural speech. Essentially, Richards said, the city needs to remember that it is, in fact, a city and not a collection of special interests. Richards did not offer specifics, but did hint at possible consolidations. Richards also called on the city school district to get its act together. Meanwhile, the Working Families Party and the Rev. Marlowe Washington, pastor of Christ Community Church of Rochester, issued a statement calling on Richards to appoint a deputy mayor from outside City Hall and outside the business community.

Charter changes coming

When city residents vote this November, they’ll probably also be asked to approve changes to the City Charter. The charter, specifically one paragraph dealing with a vacancy in the mayor’s office, was identified by many as the villain in Rochester’s mayoral succession burlesque, which ended with the election of Tom Richards last month.

City Council President Lovely Warren says there will be a public referendum on any proposed changes to the City Charter. PHOTO BY MIKE HANLON

Critics of City Council’s decision to set a special election to replace former Mayor Bob Duffy said that the charter compelled Council to appoint someone mayor. Council President Lovely Warren and other special-election supporters said the charter provided for a special election if Council members couldn’t agree on an appointment. The case went to court and the judge verbally sided with the critics, but did not force Council to take action. The judge also urged Council members to fix the charter. Warren says the city’s legal department is doing research and investigating how other cities handle similar vacancies. At some point, she says, there will be public meetings to get input on what the charter should say.

City Council would have to approve the new language, says city Acting Corporation Counsel Jeff Eichner, and then it would be put to a public referendum in November, on Election Day. Warren says there are different options for changing the charter, such as, for example, automatically going to a special election in the event of a vacancy. “That’s what congressional offices do,” she says. Another option, she says, would be to require a special election after a certain date has passed. If someone resigns after the deadline for filing petitions for a September primary, for example, then the charter would mandate a special election. Other possibilities exist, too, she says.

Brizard’s spring break After weeks of rumors and speculation, the nagging question about city schools Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard’s future was finally answered 600 miles away by Chicago Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel. Brizard’s decision to become the next CEO of the Chicago public school system has been met with a mix of remorse, anger, and relief. And it has raised a flurry of questions and concerns about the Rochester school district’s future. What will happen to Brizard’s reforms, including the phasing out of some schools and the opening of others, reconfiguring grades, and the massive $325-million plan to remodel the district’s old school buildings? Will the district be able to approve its budget — closing a $76.5-million gap — by the end of the month, as planned? And most important, who will be the district’s interim leader and its next superintendent? It’s not even clear when Brizard will leave. “We can’t sit around and waste time being upset that someone had an opportunity and took it,” says school board President Malik Evans. “As far as I’m concerned, we’re still going forward with all of the plans we’ve made.” Board members met in executive session Monday evening to discuss the legal ramifications of Brizard’s decision. Brizard has broken the contract he signed with the board

only months ago, said board member and local attorney Van White by phone after the meeting. The board has some options, but none of them are pleasant. One choice is to do nothing. Another is to Jean-Claude Brizard. FILE PHOTO pursue Brizard for breach of contract. Brizard’s contract has a mutually-agreeabletermination-of-contract clause. “This wasn’t mutually agreed upon,” said White, who was not speaking on behalf of the school board. “Our position has to be abundantly clear: he violated the terms of the agreement. The guy sent a letter of resignation. The citizens of this community shouldn’t have to bear the burden of his decision to pursue another opportunity.” The cost of the superintendent search that resulted in the selection of Brizard was about $100,000, White said. But White isn’t convinced that pursuing Brizard legally is a good idea. The last thing the district needs, he said, is another huge distraction. continues on page 10

Legislator calls for funeral protest limits In 2006, Westboro Baptist Church members threatened to bring their disgraceful brand of protest to a Brighton soldier’s funeral. No members ever showed, and a planned counterprotest became a large show of support for the young man’s family. | Other families haven’t been so lucky. Members of the Massachusettsbased church have shown up at funerals with signs proclaiming “Thank God for IEDs,” or “Pray for more dead soldiers.” A recent Supreme Court ruling affirmed the group’s right to hold the protests, but the justices also left room for communities to establish legal buffers. | And that’s what Democratic County Legislator Dick Beebe wants to do. He’s submitted legislation that would restrict protesters to a minimum of 500 feet from a place of worship or cemetery during funerals, wakes, and other memorial services. He says he wants families to have the respect they’re due during funerals — military or otherwise. | Other communities across New York and across the country are trying a similar approach. | The legislation will come before a Legislature committee at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, April 25. When the full Lej votes on it depends on whether the legislation passes the committee.

It’s 2 p.m. on a Tuesday and traffic moves smoothly through the intersection of state Route 19 and East and West Avenues in Brockport. By evening, though, things get messier. East and West Avenues are a single lane in each direction, and some drivers are held up by other drivers trying to make left-hand turns onto Route 19. Drivers can sometimes go around the vehicles attempting to make that turn, other times that’s not possible, which backs traffic up. That could all change soon, though, since the State Department of Transportation plans to build a roundabout at that intersection. If located and designed properly, roundabouts are proven to reduce the number of accidents at intersections and help keep traffic moving. Some Brockport residents question the plan, though, and there were protests at a public forum last month. They said a roundabout at that intersection could cause accidents or pose a danger to pedestrians. The intersection is heavily trafficked: about 11,000 vehicles travel Route 19 north of the intersection each day, and 14,000 vehicles travel the road south of it. In preparation for the project, the DOT researched accident counts during two periods. In 1997 and 1998 there were 20 accidents at the intersection, nine of which resulted in injuries. From June 2000 to June 2002 there were 13 accidents at the intersection. The department confirmed that rear-end and left-turn collisions are accounted for in the statistics. Other local roundabout projects have also been greeted with skepticism and optimism, whether it was the series of roundabouts on Route 590 in Irondequoit, or the one in Mendon, which is just outside of Honeoye Falls on Clover Street and Rush-Mendon Road. “Those fears are almost inevitable,” says Stephen Ferranti, an engineer and the principal at SRF Associates, a Rochesterbased transportation planning firm that’s worked on several local roundabout projects.

Lack of familiarity and a required change in behavior are partly to blame, he says. Drivers do adjust, he says, and eventually accept the change. As for the concern that roundabouts create a hazard for drivers and pedestrians, he says, statistics and actual experience show the exact opposite. Roundabouts, in short, may have an undeserved bad reputation. Roundabouts are somewhat new to the

Rochester area and to much of New York, for that matter. It’s only within the past 10 to 15 years that transportation planners have really embraced the concept, Ferranti says. They’ve emerged as effective, simple solutions to a variety of traffic and intersection problems. The Mendon roundabout is an example. More than 5,000 vehicles travel Clover Street each day, and approximately 3,000 a day on Rush-Mendon Road. The speed limit is 55 mph in all directions except one, where the speed limit is 50 mph. The intersection was previously controlled by a flashing red light — the equivalent of a stop sign — on Rush-Mendon, and a flashing yellow light on Clover Street. Vehicles traveling in either direction on Rush-Mendon had to stop before turning on Clover or passing through the intersection. That set-up meant that vehicles traveling on Clover approached and passed through the intersection at high speeds. Visibility was also a problem for the cars approaching Clover on Rush-Mendon Road. DOT spokesperson Lori Maher says that between 2002 and 2004, there were five accidents with injuries. That doesn’t sound like a lot, she says, but it’s still 3.4 times the standard for comparable intersections. The DOT hasn’t received any reports of accidents with injuries since the roundabout was built in 2006, Maher says. (The number of accidents involving property damage has stayed about the same, she says.)

The roundabout has reduced speeds at the intersection, Maher says, so if accidents happen, they’ll probably be less severe. Roundabouts also eliminate the need for left-hand turns, greatly lowering, she says, the possibility of cars T-boning each other. The other benefit is that cars no longer queue up on Rush-Mendon Road, which happened during the morning and evening commutes, Maher says. Essentially, she says, the intersection functions better. The Ford-Exchange-Plymouth roundabout in the city has had a similar effect. It was built because of accidents and congestion at a tangle of intersections in that area. When it was completed in 2005, it was the first roundabout on public roads in Monroe County. Accidents in the area have dropped by approximately 40 percent, the SRF’s Ferranti says. It’s benefited the adjacent neighborhoods, too, by serving as a visible entry point. And the roundabout has made the area easier and safer for pedestrians and cyclists to navigate, Ferranti says. Rochester city officials have gone to bid for a

roundabout at Broad, Court, and Broadway Streets and Manhattan Drive. The Broad and Court roundabout will take the place of a five-leg intersection near the HSBC building, where lines of vehicles build waiting for green lights. The roundabout will improve traffic flow in the area, says city engineer Jim McIntosh, because it will eliminate several competing signals. It’ll also make the area more accommodating to pedestrians. Instead of crossing multiple lanes of traffic all at once, he says, the largest section they’ll have to cross at one time measures 11 feet. The roundabout will do double-duty as a gateway for Manhattan Square Park and for a section of downtown that has been undergoing redevelopment with the new ESL headquarters, the Midtown redevelopment, and the National Museum of Play expansion.

But moving forward won’t be easy. The names of some potential interim and permanent superintendent candidates have already been tossed around. Among the interims: former interim superintendent Bill Cala, former district school chief Marilynn Patterson-Grant, and former Rochester Mayor Bill Johnson. It’s unlikely that a new superintendent will be hired without a stormy public debate. For starters, some school board members are sensitive about being blamed for Brizard’s departure. The seats of four board members — Malik Evans, Melisza Campos, Willa Powell, and Allen Williams — are up for election in November. In a recent interview, Brizard referred to the divisiveness of the Rochester school board as one of his reasons for leaving. And this may lead to another push for a mayoral control form of school governance. The prospect of mayoral control set in motion an emotional and often polarizing communitywide debate last year. Democratic Assembly member David Gantt, according to a Democrat and Chronicle editorial, said Brizard’s departure “shows the school board can’t get the job done.” He said he intends to renew his push for mayoral control of Rochester’s schools. “No one can legitimately say the majority of this board wasn’t supportive of JeanClaude,” White said. “We approved 90 percent of the resolutions he put forth.” Rochester’s new mayor, Tom Richards, isn’t as exuberant about mayoral control as his predecessor, Bob Duffy. When asked what Brizard’s departure means for mayoral control, Richards said he doesn’t know, though he is open to the idea. Richards seemed to take a more long-term and pragmatic view of the situation, calling it an opportunity to do some soul-searching. “We cannot have superintendents going through here every couple of years,” he said. “That’s been the case, and we’ll never be successful if that’s case.” Richards does, however, want some say in the selection of the next superintendent. “We should have some influence in it,” he said. “If nothing else, we’re picking someone who will be responsible for a very large expenditure of the city’s money.” While some school board members are concerned about being blamed for Brizard’s departure, the Rochester Teachers Association isn’t. “This man wanted to make all of these changes, and he hasn’t done anything,” says John Pavone, first vice president with the RTA. “The only thing he did was create animosity.”

Dining Pork barrel Georgie’s Bakery & Café 857 S. Clinton Ave. 241-3987, georgiesbakeryandcafe.com Mon-Thu 8 a.m.-3 p.m., Fri 8 a.m.-6 p.m., Sat 8 a.m.-5 p.m. [ REVIEW ] JAMES LEACH

One recent morning I was on South Clinton Avenue heading toward downtown when I noticed a sign tacked up on the side of a nondescript building just past Goodman Street: “Georgie’s Bakery makes

the best Cuban Sandwich in Rochester.” Liz Ruiz, who has owned Georgie’s along with her husband, George, since 2005, was against putting up the sign. “It’s caused me no end of work,” she says with a laugh, “because I’m the one who makes all those sandwiches.” I am happy to report that there is truth in advertising. While, admittedly, there are few contenders for the title of best Cuban sandwich in Rochester, Georgie’s is unquestionably the best — and it would give Cubans in Florida (where I’m currently doing “research” on the subject) a run for their money.

A traditional Cuban sandwich is a combination of roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, mustard, and pickles layered on a distinctive sandwich roll, wrapped tightly in aluminum foil, and then squashed flat on a hot griddle until the cheese melts and the bread toasts. The result is usually a compact and very tidy sandwich, each strata distinct from the others. Liz Ruiz’s Cuban is something of a departure from this standard. It includes turkey as well as ham and roast pork, instead of mustard she uses mayonnaise, she adds onions and lettuce to the mix, and it’s not very flat. It’s not flat because it simply can’t be. Even the small Cuban has what appears to be most of a pound of meat on it in addition to all of the other ingredients. The mayonnaise is actually a brilliant substitution: when the sandwich is heated up it liquefies, combining with the juices from the ham and roast pork to make a sauce that will leave you licking your fingers (and potentially your elbows) in an effort not to let even one drip escape. And the bread is darn near perfect — the crust crunchy and delicious, the interior snowy white and almost cake-like with a little bit of sweetness to round out the salty and meaty flavors. At $6.75, the smaller Cuban is more than enough for a big lunch. At $8.75, the large is enough for two people to share and potentially have leftovers for a midnight snack (if you can wait until midnight to sneak down to the fridge and polish it off). The Cuban sandwich is reason enough

to visit Georgie’s, but once you tire of a steady diet of sandwiches (I can’t imagine that this is possible, but it might happen) there’s plenty of other reasons to stop in for lunch. On Wednesdays, for instance, George makes some pretty incredible fried chicken ($6.75). There was a time when fried chicken did not wear a crunchy suit of armor. For those of you old enough to remember it, the Colonel’s original recipe was a variation on pan-fried chicken, the coating on the outside thin, intensely flavored, but just thick enough to allow the meat underneath it to steam in its own juices. George Ruiz’s chicken is a wonderful return to this earlier model. Like Harland Sanders’, George Ruiz’s batter recipe is a closely guarded secret: when I asked him what went into it, he just chuckled and looked away. There’s a little bit of cornmeal to give the coating

a nice crunch, and it sports a pretty good amount of both salt and black pepper, but beyond that, I can’t say. The meat nearly falls off the bones and dissolves in your mouth along with the coating, making each bite a little bit of heaven. The day that I had it, the fried chicken was served with macaroni salad, and even that was excellent. I’m not a fan of the sweet, one-dimensional mac salad that is ubiquitous in our fair city, but Liz Ruiz’s version is a throwback to the days when the side dish still had hardboiled eggs, mustard, celery, and celery salt in it. It made a perfect complement to the fried chicken — a picnic on a plate that left me nostalgic for my grandma’s cooking. Cubans are available every day, and fried chicken only on Wednesdays, but those in the know will show up on Saturday morning or early afternoon to partake of Georgie’s roasted pork ($7.99) or chicken ($5.99) with rice and gandules (pigeon peas). George roasts pork shoulders and whole birds right in the bread ovens, using the intense heat to sear them and then render them fork tender. A single portion of roast pork is surely enough for dinner for two. The meat is sweet and falls apart in fragrant shreds, each bite infused with cumin, pepper, salt, and creamy fat. This indulgently rich treat is accompanied by a square of crunchy pork skin (chicharones) that is best broken up and stirred into the rice along with pork juices, spreading its salty savor throughout the already flavorful rice. Notable by their absence are any form of vegetables. Although she does make green salads, Liz Ruiz points out, “there is no diet food here.” Georgie’s is an unapologetic celebration of fatty goodness, and so it only makes sense to finish off your meal with one of the bakery’s incredible quesitos: flaky pockets of butter pastry filled with cream cheese and guava paste ($1.25 each). I’ve rarely seen pastry so lovingly made, each layer as distinct as the leaves of a book, the crust outside full of the compressed bubbles that are evidence of a master baker at work. Grab a couple for later on — and hide them lest friends or family get to them before you do.

Truman Capote once referred to J.R. Ackerley’s 1956 memoir “My Dog Tulip” as “one of the greatest books ever written by anybody in the world.” It’s been adapted for the screen by veteran animator Paul Fierlinger and his wife, Sandra, into an imaginatively lo-fi watercolor cartoon for adults, one which recounts the 16 years of mutual adoration between the English writer and his German Shepherd. Hot off Pixar’s gorgeous “Up,” the tireless Christopher Plummer provides the voice for Ackerley, 20 who sums up the bond between Britons and their pets thusly: “Unable to love each other, the English turn naturally to dogs.” Ackerley takes us through his initial encounters with the 18-month-old Tulip as they try to co-exist, him offering up uncommonly profound analyses on the inner life of a dog who actually has very simple needs and motivations. The film spends an inordinate amount of time on the gooier aspects of Tulip’s body, including her efforts to conceive with the matchmaking assistance of Ackerley. He thought she might like a husband, but she was clearly already in love. (Wednesday, April 27, Little 5, 7:15 p.m.; Friday, April 29, Dryden, 10 p.m.) oo

“Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone”

Both England’s Ray Winstone and New Zealand’s Temuera Morrison first earned art-house notice in 1994 with intense performances as abusive husbands; Winstone in Ken Loach’s “Ladybird Ladybird” and Morrison in Lee Tamahori’s “Once Were Warriors.” The ensuing years saw each man successfully adhering to the character-actor path, and now the two talents converge in “Tracker,” a 5.6 sturdy period adventure kept aloft by its skillful central 4 2.8 2 duet. Winstone stars as Arjan, a South African refugee of the Second Boer War who relocates to New Zealand in 1903, while Morrison plays Kereama, a Maori sailor on the run across some stunning Kiwi scenery after being wrongly accused of murder. Arjan, an experienced tracker, joins the lucrative hunt for Kereama, but once he catches up with his prey, “Tracker” becomes a strange sort of buddy movie, as the two men find they have a common enemy thanks to their experiences with British colonialism and its heavy price. At times Arjan and Kereama indulge in some incongruous screwball bickering that would be more at home in “Lethal Weapon,” but director Ian Sharp and screenwriter Nicolas van Pallandt never let us forget that they’re dealing with matters of life, death, and honor. (Wednesday, April 27, Dryden, 6:45 p.m.)

this year the honor goes to director Julie Taymor, who most recently hit theaters with her gender-bent take on Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” but is probably best known for her Tony-winning stage adaptation of “The Lion King.” Other 2011 honorees are Ken Burns’ cinematographer Buddy Squires, as well as “Cannonball Run” screenwriter Brock Yates, who currently resides in Wyoming County.

ell, it’s more than a little mind-blowing that 10 years have flown by since 2001’s inaugural High Falls Film Festival, originally conceived to honor Rochester’s unique place in the histories of both film and women’s rights. The past decade has seen HF3, as it was affectionately known back then, morph into what is now called the 360

There have been so many documentaries about musicians that detail their rise to fame, followed by their fall from grace, then hopefully the peace that they’ve made with where they ultimately land. But there aren’t too many bands like Fishbone, who’ve spent the last 20 years honing a nearly unclassifiable blend of ska, punk, funk, reggae, and whatever else strikes them. (“I’ve seen them do every style,” reports Minutemen co-founder Mike Watt. “In the same song.”) With dramatic narration by Laurence Fishburne, “Everyday Sunshine” chronicles the evolution of Fishbone, from South Central kids in a San Fernando Valley high school to the main stage at Lollapalooza ‘93 to the ego-fueled breakdown of the chemistry that originally propelled their shared vision. Filmmakers Chris Metzler and Lev Anderson get reminiscences of Fishbone from a Who’s Who of alternative rock, including Les Claypool, Perry Farrell, Flea, and Vernon Reid, all of whom recall a peerless band that didn’t get the recognition it deserved. But “Everyday Sunshine” focuses most of its attention on Fishbone’s odd-couple nucleus of manic Angelo Moore and thoughtful Norwood Fisher, perhaps unwittingly providing them with a forum to air long-standing resentments and find harmonious ground on which to move forward. (Wednesday, April 27, Little 1, 7 p.m.)

“Poetry” On its surface, Lee Chang-dong’s “Poetry” can’t help but bring to mind “Mother,” by fellow South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho. Both feature older maternal figures who will seemingly do anything to protect their guilty young, no matter what the crime. But where Bong’s film was a nifty little thriller, Lee’s is a meditative character study, one that showcases the heavenly performance of Yun Jung-hee. Yun stars as Mija, a cheery, selfless 66-year-old who lives with her lazy teenage grandson and takes care of an old man who is unable to care for himself. Mija begins taking a poetry class on a whim, but her newfound purpose and joy is soon hindered by the onset of Alzheimer’s as well as her grandson’s implication in a horrific crime. “Poetry” observes as Mija attempts to come to terms with both her power and powerlessness in the lives of those around her, all the while trying to complete a poem by finding the words that will capture her thoughts and feelings before they elude her permanently.

2.8 2

Someone likens Bill Cunningham to a war photographer, and as you watch footage of the helmetless octogenarian snaking through Manhattan traffic on his rickety bicycle, occasionally with a camera in one hand, you can’t help but fear for the man’s well-being. What’s he doing out there? “The fashion show is definitely on the street; always has been, always will be,” Cunningham declares, and Richard Press’ absorbing documentary “Bill Cunningham New York” takes a look at the man who studies the sidewalks, hoping to spot trends in style or perhaps just capture an everyday person’s unique flair. Cunningham’s photographs have been appearing in the New York Times for the last 40 years, and interviews with the industry elite make the case for his impact on fashion. (“We all get dressed for Bill,” confesses Vogue Editor Anna Wintour.) Most enjoyably, though, we spend time with the down-to-earth charmer himself, who takes us to his cramped studio and regales us with memorable tales of a life utterly devoted to work, even to the exclusion of romance. It’s a startling revelation that Cunningham states with his typical Yankee matter-of-factness, but it still might make you a bit sad.

Those who’ve been operating under the impression that the internet is basically just a shopping mecca or a clearinghouse for free porn should know that some constructive, creative good can come from it as well. Back in January of 2009 a virtual call went out into 5.6 cyberspace for musicians to upload their auditions 4 2.8 2 for the YouTube Symphony Orchestra. The online community voted, and in April more than 90 musicians from 30-plus countries converged on New York City, with only two days to rehearse for a concert on one of the world’s most famous stages. Stephen Higgins’ inspirational “Harmony: The Road to Carnegie Hall” introduces us to a few of the winners before they begin intensive preparations, with the language barrier and limited rehearsal time potentially conspiring to turn this act of global goodwill into a cacophonous disaster. And while the participants, under the tutelage of Grammy-winning conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and Oscarwinning composer Tan Dun, may not be professional musicians, they’re nonetheless passionately committed, their hopes and fears becoming ours as they get one step closer to realizing their musical dreams.

This probably isn’t the most criticky way to start a review, but I love this movie so much. To be honest, though, the premise of “Louder Than A Bomb” is nothing new: cameras roll while eager children participate in activities that aren’t typically associated with young-people fun, like the little wordsmiths in 2002’s “Spellbound” or the school-age hoofers of “Mad Hot Ballroom.” Unfolding against the backdrop of a 2008 Chicagoland poetry slam 5.6 for teens, “Louder Than A Bomb” sets itself both apart and 4 2.8 2 above due to its treasure trove of brilliantly spirited kids, so-called opponents who are also each other’s biggest fans. Co-director Greg Jacobs and Jon Siskel begin their chronicle six months before the competition — also called Louder Than A Bomb — and narrow their focus to a quartet of poets, like the determined Nova, who has learned to channel her anger into her art, and Nate, a self-described “nerd” whose accomplished wordplay belies his age. We learn about what inspires these kids to write, whether it be family or social issues, but the most rousing parts take place at LTAB, where everyone cheers on their competitors as they hit the stage to spill their hearts and guts. Do not miss this one. (Saturday, April 30, Nazareth Arts Center, 5:30 p.m.; Sunday, May 1, Little 1, 3 p.m.)

“Three” At various points in a relationship the romantic part of it will wane; that’s where Hanna (Sophie Rois, “The Inheritors”) and Simon (Sebastian Schipper, “The English Patient”) are when we meet them. They’ve been together for about 20 years — never married, no kids, demanding careers — and they’re both ripe for the picking. That each will have a secret affair with the same person, a bisexual stem-cell researcher, is the premise of Tom Tykwer’s “Three,” a drama that offers a distinctive view of modern commitment and its ability to weather time and change. Since his first international success with 1998’s “Run Lola Run,” Tykwer has been delightfully tough to pin down; his reported next project, for instance, will star a young up-and-comer named Tom Hanks. Now, some might find Tykwer’s stance in “Three” rather utopian, while others could scoff at a resolution that’s perhaps a bit too tidy. But with the help of believable and unaffected performances, especially Schipper as a man surprised by the easy fluidity of his sexuality, Tykwer has crafted an intriguing love story with moments of natural humor.

“Louder Than A Bomb”

Out of the three principal actors in 1999’s “The Blair Witch Project,” it seemed like the handsome, magnetic Joshua Leonard would be the star. And he still may be, though he’s certainly taken his sweet time about it. After a decade of slogging it out on the fringe (including 2009’s excellent “Humpday”), Leonard makes his feature-directing debut with a darkly funny adaptation of a T. Coraghessan Boyle short story about a man and the repercussions of his early mid-life crisis. 20 Leonard also stars as Lonnie, and “The Lie” begins to take shape when the unhappy video editor begins manufacturing reasons to get out of work, culminating in a nearly unforgivable untruth, one that Lonnie will try very hard to keep aloft. But as good as Leonard is as a man whose idealistic aspirations have been quashed by the real-world responsibilities attendant to providing for a family, co-star Jess Weixler steals “The Lie” from her director and co-writer. Best known for her turn in 2007’s vagina dentata cult classic “Teeth,” Weixler offers up a beautifully controlled performance as Lonnie’s wife, juggling new motherhood with career decisions and now a husband who has essentially stopped functioning. She also has to pretend to like one of Lonnie’s terrible songs, which is perhaps the most difficult acting of all. (Saturday, April 30, Little 1, 6 p.m.) 0. 9

First Ryan Reynolds in “Buried,” then James Franco in “127 Hours,” and now Adrien Brody in “Wrecked”: the last few months have seen a run on the guy-trapped-in-a-tight-spot solo act, with the latest featuring the Oscar winner (for 2002’s “The Pianist”; remember?) as a car-crash victim unable to remember exactly what happened. We first meet Brody’s unnamed and injured man when he regains consciousness, his struggle to free himself from the wreckage hampered by an uncooperative glove compartment. Details reveal themselves slowly... a gun, a couple of corpses, and a whole lot of cash. Is this man, who we’ve been rooting for to survive, a dangerously amoral bank robber? Shot in the woods of British Columbia, “Wrecked” is the directorial debut of Canadian filmmaker Michael Greenspan, who parcels out information about his protagonist with confidence and patience, though occasionally allowing his aspiring thriller to drag. The film’s ability to engage rests solely on the shoulders of Brody, who holds our attention and our sympathies while putting himself through the grueling paces of army-crawling on the muddy forest floor and sharing his most emotive scenes with a dog.

“Copacabana” At one point or another you’ve probably been embarrassed by your parents, but the recently engaged Esmé is so mortified by the self-centered eccentricity of her mother Babou that she’s concocted a lie that will keep Babou away from her own daughter’s wedding. This galvanizes the blowzy Babou into making something of herself by selling timeshares in a dreary Belgian town, thereby proving to her daughter that she’s worthy of her respect. This sounds like the premise for a predictable, feel-good comedy, and it totally is. But what distinguishes “Copacabana” from the million other coming-of-middle-age tales is its Babou, French cinema grande dame Isabelle Huppert. Truthfully, “Copacabana” is a bit of a lark for La Huppert, who could play Babou in her sleep. But she fully embraces the cotton-candyness of it all as an aging bohemian who realizes that her daughter (played by her actual spawn, the Winslet-resembling Lolita Chammah) may have a valid point about the short-sighted futility of Babou’s living for the moment, while Esmé discovers that her mother isn’t without her particular brand of weird wisdom... something we all eventually learn, over and over again.

More than a decade in the making, Craig McCall’s wonderful documentary “Cameraman” trains its lens on Jack Cardiff, the celebrated cinematographer who combined his milieu’s art and science to gamechanging effect. First appearing in front of the camera in 1918 at 4 years old, it wasn’t long before he found his way to the other side, his skill with the new process 5.6 4 of Technicolor eventually earning him a chance to shoot for 2.8 2 the renowned team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Cardiff would win an Oscar in 1947 for their “The Red Shoes,” effectively providing the painterly blueprint for future generations of cinematographers. “Cameraman” features remembrances from Cardiff’s peers and fans, names like Lauren Bacall, Kirk Douglas, and Martin Scorsese, unfortunately lit as though he’s telling a ghost story. McCall’s ace-in-the-hole, however, is copious interviews with the humble man himself; though we lost Cardiff in 2009 at the age of 94, we get a personal tour of his accomplished artwork, candid observations about fellow legends (on Marlene Dietrich: “She would have been a great cameraman”), as well as interesting anecdotes from famous film sets like 1951’s “The African Queen,” where the drinking water was so bad that John Huston and Humphrey Bogart bravely made do with whiskey.

Montreal have perfected a style that harmoniously blends psychedelic with electronica. Frontman Kevin Barnes has the distinct talent to weave his oftentimes gloomy lyrics effortlessly into bouncy, upbeat melodies, creating a beautiful marriage between seemingly disparate notions. A showman at his core, live performances serve as a conduit for the many eccentric tendencies Barnes and his group can’t quite put into musical form, try though they might. The fantastical pageantry of the show — costumed dancers, bizarre imagery, and a handful of other wacky accouterments — will only highlight what you’re really there for: the music. — BY DAVID LEBARGE

not your father’s jazz band,” naming your group Mostly Other People Do the Killing is a good start. Playing some of the most urgent-free jazz on the scene today is not bad either. MOPDtK, which won the 2009 DownBeat Critics Poll for Rising Star Ensemble, consists of leader Moppa Elliott on bass; Peter Evans, trumpet; Jon Irabagon, saxophone; and Kevin Shea, drums. All are brilliant players who stretch the vocabularies of their instruments while deconstructing the music with equal measures of adventurousness and fun. — BY RON NETSKY

That battered Les Paul wasn’t going to play itself, and though the Heartstabbers have a lush, earthy sound set to a catchy country cadence, Kast has a lead foot. The boy’s got to rock. It’s going to be so gloriously loud and fast, you may need diapers.

Screw the Crue [ review ] by frank de blase

Blast-from-the-past, hair-metal monsters Nasty Habit reigned supreme on the stage at Montage Music Hall Saturday night. A lot of the awe surrounding this band comes from the age of the members — when Ozzy was singing about his “Crazy Train,” they were still playing with choo-choo trains. But this band is so much more than a youth-gone-wild glam jam or an Aquanetted pastiche. This is loud, loose, and raucous fun; a celebration of defiance, decadence, and sex appeal. Singer Tommy Ende strutted the stage, periodically brandishing the mic stand like a harpoon while wearing pants so low you could see the tops of his socks. Everything was built around his brother Ken’s monster guitar riffs, which he reverently applied to period-correct rave-ups and covers, as well as originals that sounded equally vintage. When the band finally crosses over into 100 percent original territory it will be unstoppable. Screw the Crue; be you. Fire Red followed with a powerful set of progressive rock that flirted with metal,

only to be commandeered by its funky groove. The stage show was non-existent, however — and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The band focuses its effort and might on its unique rhythmic twists full of dynamics that could easily draw blood. Vocalist Michelle Jiminez has an amazing voice with serious depth and range. It’s as much a come-on as it is a threat. As I’ve said before, The Public Market Band is a ragamuffin ensemble that has — to the surprise of many, themselves included — become a really good bluesy, swingin’ party band that puts itself in the middle of the party. Its talent was put to the test Saturday night at Abilene Bar & Lounge when jazz giant Chet Catallo sat in for a few. Catallo pitched curveballs and sliders and the band kept swingin’. “Georgia On My Mind,” with its minor progression, was particularly sweet with Catallo’s sweet fills and the band rising admirably to the memorable occasion. No doubt it was Catallo’s first time with a box player.

Music Why do you suppose that is?

I think I was marginalized because of my background as a sex worker and my outspokenness about it. The blues community itself is marginalized; it’s not heard on mainstream radio, it’s not celebrated in popular culture. The blues community really wants to be taken seriously as a genre, and the last thing it needs is some porn star riding around playing the piano with her boobs and talking about legalizing prostitution. Now when I’m acknowledged, it’s especially vindicating, because I did it my way. Who supported you initially?

Blues singer-songwriter Candye Kane has channeled a lifetime of struggles — including a recent bout with pancreatic cancer — into her music. PHOTO PROVIDED

Candye-coated blues Candye Kane Saturday, April 23 Abilene, 153 Liberty Pole Way 9:30 p.m. | $12 | 232-3230, Candyekane. com [ INTERVIEW ] By Frank De Blase

Bawdy blues belter Candye Kane is as tenacious as she is bodacious. Her path has been peppered with speed bumps and challenges that would derail the average Joe. Bad times make for good music, though, and Kane has embraced this adversity face first, leaving some beautiful blues in her wake. Kane is a self-made woman. Emerging from the wreckage of a troubled childhood, teen pregnancy, abuse, drugs, and notoriety as a plus-sized adult-film star to become the true blues diva she is today, Kane still finds people that don’t quite get her or understand. But as soon as these philistines hear the lady sing, they get the news. This woman’s voice will break your heart and your back. Her music is traditionally rooted in the bosom of the big women that paved the way, tweaked with twists from other genes and assorted eras. She’s lyrically salacious yet still carries herself with dignity and class. Having recently beaten pancreatic cancer, Kane is working on album No. 12. We chatted on the phone about this victory, her past, her present, the power of words, and why she no longer plays the piano with her boobs. An edited transcript follows. 18 City april 20-26, 2011

CITY: Of all the challenges you’ve faced, what has been the hardest? Candye Kane: The cancer was probably the

hardest. Pancreatic cancer is pretty gnarly. When they tell you you have it, it’s pretty scary. You start thinking how much you’ve accomplished, how much you haven’t, and whether you’re going to have time to accomplish anything else. So that was definitely the biggest challenge I’ve had. How did you beat it?

It was helpful that I had already overcome a lot of trauma in my life. I had a rough childhood. I was verbally abused my whole life. My dad was in prison when I was born. Then I had a baby when I was 17, I became an intravenous drug user, I was a battered girlfriend, then I was a porn queen. So I’d already had a hard-knock life pretty much. But I sort of took control of my life by taking power over the words in my life. Words became really important at an early age, because I was called all kinds of four-letter words before I knew what any of those word meant. So as I grew up, even though my parents were constantly telling me words meant nothing and it was all semantics — words really do mean something. So when I started writing songs like “The Toughest Girl Alive” or “You Need A Great Big Woman To Show You How To Love” or “Superhero,” those songs became more powerful than any of the negative words I had been fed.

I was already in the habit of practicing positive affirmation and using words to empower myself. So when I got sick, it was easier. I had a place of grounding to draw upon. I already knew I had inner strength, but I also knew it was easy to let the negativity take over the positivity. So I would allow myself the luxury of 15 or 20 minutes of self pity and crying and feeling sorry for myself every day, then I made sure I countered it with 40 minutes of positivity. I spent time in nature meditating. So I encourage people to get in the habit now of being mindful of the words they’re using on themselves and on each other. We don’t mean to do it, but we beat our own selves up. How long have you been cancer-free?

It’s been three years since I was diagnosed, two years since I’ve been cancer-free. You lost weight, too.

I lost 80 lbs. from the whole ordeal, but I feel great. I needed to lose weight anyway. As I often say, my fat ass saved my fat ass. If I hadn’t been fat it would’ve been a lot more dangerous. Because of your colorful past, did you have to work harder to prove yourself when you started in on the music scene?

Yeah, I still have to. For instance, this next record will be my 12th record, but I only started getting acknowledged by The Blues Foundation in the last three years. So where were they for the last 10 records?

The queers, the fat girls, the rockabilly kids and the disenfranchised people who grasped what I was doing. The blues people were just clueless, even though there was a history of women like me in the blues. Women like Memphis Minnie, who wrote songs about streetwalking and prostitution; women like Big Mama Thornton and Alberta Hunter, with their ambiguous sexuality; and women like Big Maybelle, who celebrated their size. You grew up in The LA punk scene. What drew you to the blues?

In the 80’s in Hollywood it wasn’t just punk, there was Los Lobos and The Blasters and Dwight Yoakam and James Harmon and Top Jimmy & The Rhythm Pigs, and The Circle Jerks, Black Flag, and X. And there was a blurring of the lines between the styles. Eventually I married Tom [Yearsley] from The Paladins and he had a great record collection — Magic Sam, Elmore James, Johnny “Guitar” Watson. Before that I was more of a hillbilly purist. I listened to a lot of Kitty Wells and The Carter Family, and Floyd Tillman, the Louvin Brothers and stuff. How has your music evolved over the years?

I’m kind of more of a blues artist than I was in the beginning. I still throw in a country thing or a doo-wop thing or western swing and even a polka here and there. I’m still a little eclectic. I think I’m a better songwriter now. I’ve learned to say more with less. I used to rely on sexual innuendo and double entendre, even playing the piano with my boobs, which I don’t do anymore. Why not?

Well No. 1: I don’t have a piano player. No. 2: it became something people expected and that bummed me out. I don’t like being predictable. And that became the only thing that stuck in people’s minds. That’s not how I want to be remembered. If I go out, I want to go out being remembered as a songwriter of songs that made people feel better and changed their lives, and not as a girl who played piano with her tits.

CLASSICAL | Musica Spei: Music for Good Friday

Musica Spei is all about sacred choral works of the medieval and Renaissance periods, and for this Good Friday, the group will perform works by Tallis, Gesualdo, Mouton, Guerrero, Vaet, and Ingegneri from the 15th and 16th centuries. The program beautifully lays out the lyrics in the original languages with English translations, several of which are sacred texts from the moments of Jesus’ death. Unusual for Musica Spei, this concert includes some related 20th Century works from Dupre and Schneider, to be performed by Teresa Ringholz, a soprano who returned to Rochester in 2006 after a lengthy international career. Ringholz will be joined by Sherri Fleshner, viola, and Mariko Morita, organ. The concert takes place Friday, April 22, 7:30 p.m. at St. Anne Church, 1600 Mt.

JAZZ | Sofrito

Think of Sofrito as a deliciously sautéed mix of bossa nova and salsa with lots of spicy improvisation thrown in for good measure. Flautist Tim Forster, known for his work with jazz vocalist Madeline Forster, put the group together two years ago to fill in for a band that cancelled a gig at the last minute. Once he decided to go Latin, he enlisted trumpeter/arranger Paul Gaspar, Mambo Kings bassist Hector Diaz, and Latin percussionist extraordinaire Tony Padilla. With that line-up, it’s no wonder the group has endured well beyond that substitute gig. Sofrito performs Saturday, April 23, 6 p.m. at Bistro 135, 135 W. Commercial St., East Rochester.

April has been a big Elton John month for Rochester.

The pop legend’s songbook is huge, covering five decades, and including huge hits like “Rocket Man,” “I’m Still Standing,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” and more. Yes, the bitch is back in his first concert appearance in Rochester since 1999. Saturday will be alright for fighting.

Eastman School of Music ends its annual World Music Series with a Balinese gamelan concert (pictured). PHOTO COURTESY EASTMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC

The whole world in our hands World Music Series: Gamelan Lila Muni Monday, April 25 Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs St. 8 p.m. | $10-$20 | 454-2100, esm.rochester.edu [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA

Eastman School of Music offers its World Music Series every year, bringing in three or four different performers from foreign countries and cultures, or who present underrepresented forms of music and instruments within the United States. The series concludes each year with a gamelan concert in April; this year it will take place on Monday, April 25. In 1880, the words “world music” were reportedly first used in Germany as “musikwissenschaft,” literally “the science of music,” when some like-minded people became interested in finding out whether the different cultures of the world had music and, if so, could they compare it in a scientific way. “The branch that we know as ethnomusicology today really began in the United States through the introduction of anthropological methods to the study of world-music traditions,” says Ellen Koskoff, director of ESM’s world music certificate and ethnomusicology diploma program. 24 City april 20-26, 2011

For several years, the Eastman School has featured a Balinese gamelan as part of its ethnomusicology program. “Gamelan,” simply translated, means ensemble. The additional words accompanying “gamelan” signal which instruments should be grouped together to form the ensemble. “Last year, we had the opportunity to rent a larger, louder gamelan — the ‘gamelan kebyar’ — for the Eastman School and to lease our gamelan — the ‘gamelan angklung’ — to the Harley School,” Koskoff says. “We had a demonstration last year at the Harley School to a packed assembly, pulled out the whole ensemble, and taught for an hour and a half,” says Emeric Viani, masters student at ESM, who is studying music education and ethnomusicology. “They were an awesome group. They were engaged and intrigued. They had lots of questions about where the instruments were made, how the instruments were used, what the instruments were used for.” The “gamelan angklung” at the Harley

School includes eight to 12 “gangsa” (a fourkeyed instrument), two “reong” (a gangsa with embossed pots for percussive effects), three gongs, a “ketuk” (a beat-keeper), and a pair of drums. “The biggest thing that most people notice first is how loud the gamelan can be,”

says Viani. “Both gamelans are meant to be played outside.” Viani, along with ESM classmate Jordan Hayes, leads the gamelan community group at the Harley School, which meets every Monday 6:30-8 p.m. The group is made up primarily of adults, some with their children and grandchildren. Koskoff isn’t troubled by the notion that “world music” may have lost its exotic twang in a society rapidly connecting musicians through YouTube, Facebook, and global GPS. “There are still people who go to Bali to study cremation music with a bunch of guys who will never have a record,” says Koskoff. “And they don’t care about that because they are just interested in making music.” More than 40 different types of gamelan are primarily used for cremation and toothfilling ceremonies in Southeast Asia. In its native setting, it is perceived as a sad tone. To our Western ears, Viani believes we perceive the tones as cheerful. For Viani, who has been to Bali to study gamelan, the argument is that while the Internet has increased accessibility to music, especially music outside of what’s done in this country, “it’s not the same reaction as seeing the instruments live.” He says, “You don’t get a sense of the size of these instruments until you’re sitting in front of them. You don’t get a full sense of the sound until you’re striking the keys for yourself. You don’t get a sense of the ensemble experience, until you are playing in the gamelan and being part of the group.” It does beg the question of whether “world music” remains a valid category in today’s interconnected globe, where the term “world” is rapidly becoming small or local to the MP3buying audience. More and more musicians can legitimately claim worldwide reputations, like conductor and composer Brad Lubman, based at Eastman, who started a photo session earlier this year by mentioning performance jetlag from Asia. So too, Ayano Ninomyia of the Ying Quartet, who hails from Japan, and makes Rochester her home. And then there are foreign musicians, like Brazilian composer Clarice Assad, who chose to have world premieres at locales like Rochester’s Hochstein School of Music & Dance. Koskoff describes the tension between our emergence into a one-world platform and our propensity to use language labels in our communication. “The thing that has changed in ethnomusicology as a discipline is that we have started to move away from the nationstate version of the world into a globalizing version,” says Koskoff, “We have whole conferences on it. Everybody hates the term ‘world music’ and everybody shrugs when it comes up, but it is still used as the main term.”

Like many Americans, I grew up celebrating a secular Easter holiday by boiling and then painting eggs with my creative mom and hunting for hidden treasures in colorful plastic shells with my sibs. To prevent the inevitable wars between kids who balked at splitting the cache evenly, we had to locate the color assigned to us and enjoy the prizes picked out specifically for each of us. Personally, I’m surprised no one has made an adult version of Easter traditions, like we have for Halloween (there could maybe be mini liquor bottles in the eggs, or lunch coupons), but I suppose I can settle for hiding some candy and toy prizes for my little niece. Here are a few opportunities to take the munchkins out and about for traditional hunts; check for more on the events calendar at rochestercitynewspaper.com.

LECTURE | Rochester Historical Society

As many Rochesterians remember, our city was an entirely different place in the 1960’s. But harder to fathom is Rochester one century earlier than that: the Rochester of the Civil War, of early Abolition efforts and pre-Suffrage life. In celebration of its 150th anniversary, the Rochester Historical Society will present a three-part lecture series that will explore the Rochester of its founding decade: the 1860’s. Each lecture will be held on a Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Society’s exhibit space at Rundel Memorial Library (115 South Ave.) on the second floor. The first talk, “Rochester Soldiers in the Civil War,” takes place on April 21, and will be presented by D&C columnist Bob Marcotte. Next up, on May 19, is an exploration of “RIT in the 19th Century,” given by Dane Gordon, RIT professor emeritus of philosophy. And finally, on June 16, Kathleen Emerson Britton, director/ curator of collections at the Rochester Medical Museum and Archives, will discuss “Setting up House: The Building of Rochester City Hospital.” The cost for each lecture is $3 for adults, $2 for children, and free for members.

Spring has finally sprung, and it seems to be sticking around this time (fingers crossed). The world is once more alive with enthusiastic birdsong and bright colors. They sure are welcome, but do you have the names for what you’re seeing and hearing? Learn more this week with one of many interpretive hikes; these are just a few — check the events calendar at rochestercitynewspaper.com for more. If you’re not acquainted with the rambling grounds of the Thousand Acre Swamp (1581 Jackson Road, Penfield), this spring is the perfect opportunity to visit for one of its free public hikes. On Wednesday, April 27, join Dave Strong and Jackson Thomas for a 9 a.m. spring stroll. Enjoy the spring sights and sounds as you learn about local flora and fauna. Upcoming hikes include the April 29 evening stroll to stargaze at Mizar and Alcor Over the Swamp, and other walks featuring spring wildflowers, migratory birds, and Kevin Williams in person to answer your weather wonderings. All hikes will begin at the sanctuary parking lot. No dogs (except guide dogs) allowed. For more information, call 425-9561 or 586-6677. Incorporate a road trip into your plans and join the 10 a.m. Mushrooms & Moss Walk at Letchworth State Park in Castile on Thursday, April 21. This introductory-level stroll will span one mile over three hours in the Silver Lake Outlet Woods. The hike is free but parking fees may apply on the park’s grounds. Bring a lunch, and meet at the Silver Lake Outlet Bridge, one mile north of the Perry Exit on Main Park Road. On Saturday, April 23, a 2 p.m. Indoor Ed-Venture in the Visitor’s Center will feature a Chorus of Frogs, and you can hear the real thing at 7 p.m. that night, if you partake of the Crepuscular Walk: Full Moon Frog Serenade.

OUR SPECTACULAR MENU INCLUDES Soups • Eggs Benedict • Omelets • French Toast Salmon • Carving station • Fresh seasonal salads Fresh fruits • Dessert station AND MANY MORE DELECTABLE ITEMS! SPECIAL EVENT | Greater Rochester Active Transportation Symposium

Despite being recently named the most commuter-friendly city in the nation by the Texas Transportation Institute, that honor applies to Rochester only when it comes to personal automobiles. Despite the presence of an enthusiastic cyclist community, Rochester isn’t the most bike-friendly city. A few area organizations are seeking to improve the situation, and benefit the community’s health, economy, and environment by encouraging a shift toward active transportation (biking or walking). You can learn where we stand, what improvements are being sought, and what that means for everyone at the Greater Rochester Active Transportation Symposium on Wednesday, April 27. The event takes place 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Radisson Hotel Rochester Riverside (120 E. Main St.), and will examine how we can become a more active transportation-friendly community. National and local experts will weigh in on how other communities have affected positive change, and what tools and policies we might enact in our own city.

The Satyr Dance, part of the UR International Theatre production of “The Winter’s Tale.” PHOTO BY J. ADAM FENSTER/UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER

Only in the passage of time “The Winter’s Tale” Through April 30 International Theatre Program Todd Theatre, University of Rochester River Campus. $7-$13 | 275-4088, rochester.edu/theatre [ REVIEW ] By Michael Lasser

If you’re interested in serious theater, both classical and experimental, the University of Rochester’s International Theatre Program may be just your cup of tea, provided you don’t require polished professionals as long as the cast is eager and intelligent. Undergraduates play all the roles, though they receive direction and technical support from professionals. William Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale,” now on view at Todd Union on the UR River campus, is a very good case in point. A late romance written shortly before “The Tempest,” and living ever since in its shadow, this strange, demanding, often underrated work is not among the plays that students read in a typical semester-long course in Shakespeare. The play’s first three acts are dark and dangerous, as the reasonable, loving King Leontes of Sicilia, the winter kingdom of the title, succumbs to prideful jealousy over the affair he wrongfully imagines between his queen, Hermione, and his friend, Polixenes, king of Bohemia. His all-encompassing rage destroys both family and friendship. Yet in the last two acts, the play suddenly moves to pastoral Bohemia, where a kind shepherd discovers 30 City april 20-26, 2011

Leontes’ baby daughter, left to die because her father believes that she is a bastard. Rather than a conventional climax, “The Winter’s Tale” uses a giant bear to embody the shift as it devours the Sicilian lord charged with leaving the baby to die. It also uses a speech by Father Time to remind us of its passing as 16 years elapse. Director Nigel Maister has transformed the bear into an oversized comic teddy, eliminating its ferocity for an easy laugh, and cut Time’s speech, thereby weakening one of the play’s central themes, for only in the passage of time are all things restored. In Bohemia, people celebrate small pleasures but also find themselves vulnerable to the comic cutpurse, Autolycus, who offers a happy-go-lucky alternative to the diminished Leontes alone in his dead-hearted kingdom. It’s only a matter of time before the truth emerges and families are restored. A statue of Hermione becomes Hermione herself, and her daughter, now 16, marries the son of the Bohemian king. Love replaces jealousy, spring follows winter, and the future promises happiness. It’s a perfect play for April. Yet the change from winter to spring has never

been more abrupt. By the end of act three, it’s hard not to believe that “The Winter’s Tale” will be unrelieved misery rising to the level of tragedy. Even Leontes’ beloved son is dead. In an inspired bit of stagecraft, the production uses a life-sized Japanese bunraku puppet as the young prince, operated with impressive dexterity by three students. John Amir Fazli as Leontes sustains the king’s rage, creating fear and discord everywhere, while in Bohemia, Andrew Polec III as Autolycus

is a breath of flamboyant fresh air and Lydia Jimenez provides a funny but disciplined comic turn as the old shepherd who raises the abandoned baby as her own. Credit Maister for using theater as entertainment but also as instruction — by broadening access to Shakespeare and by providing excellent program notes by a student assistant director. He draws believable performances from a cast whose lead actors usually handle Elizabethan language and rhythms in a creditable way. Maister also sets the play in the present and recent past: Leontes’ court resembles a posh hotel’s cocktail lounge in the stunning opening scene, and a party for Bohemian sheep shearers conjures up the flower children of the 1960’s. The floor of the stage is awash in monochromatic flowers. Eventually, though, Maister adds elements of staging that pander to a young audience, especially in the heavy-handed use of sexual props and a bit of gratuitous partial nudity. Generally, though, it’s a merry grab bag of styles and effects, even though in the second half the production worked a little too hard to be liked and not hard enough to be “The Winter’s Tale.” Despite the inexperience of the cast, these young actors clearly understand the characters they portray and the story they tell. There are times when the momentum slows, the language gets lost (partly because the stage is cavernous and the ceilings high), and the acting, to be kind, is amateurish. But overall this ambitious (and very long — nearly three and a half hours) production is worth its audience’s attention.

THEATER | “Defending the Caveman”

We can’t seem to stop obsessing over the real and imagined differences between men and women. Though we have the inkling that individual personalities reign over gender- and culturally designated ones, and we are beginning to understand and accept that gender is more fluid than the two traditional categories, we’re still talking about the supposed strict ways that men and women differ in motivation and action. But it’s true that evolution and culture have many of us trained better than the pups at Eukanuba, and there are some differences that, when pointed out, ring fairly true. “Defending the Caveman,” the longest-running solo play in Broadway history, provides a stripped-down, comical look at the everlasting battle of the sexes, offering humorous insight into the realm of the trod-upon caveman. Through a series of anecdotes and ponderings, the solo, spear-waving actor makes generalizations about the different ways males and females go about their lives, and offers up his self-defense with a heavy dose of self-deprecation, and ultimately, a huge shrug. Perhaps the best approach in relationships is to try to truly see the other person and to poke fun at idiosyncrasies, rather than attempting to control them. The show has been extended at Downstairs Cabaret Theatre (3450 Winton Place) through April 23, with performances taking place this week Thursday, April 21, at 7 p.m., Friday, April 22, at 8 p.m., and Saturday, April 23 at 5 & 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $29-$39.

Assassination, conspiracy, and injustice [ review ] by george grella

of many Southerners. To paraphrase William Faulkner, the nation that wins a war gains only victory, while the loser enjoys a permanent sense “The Conspirator” of resentment, a heritage of lost honor and (PG-13), directed by Robert Redford injured pride, a lasting regard for the past. Now playing So as the re-enactors fire their blanks and feign death on the battlefield, as the ladies Robert Redford’s new film, “The Conspirator,” in hoop skirts pretend to some deluded appears at a propitious moment, just as many ideal of gentility, as the marchers wave their Southerners wallow in celebrations of the 150th Confederate flags, as the bands play “Dixie,” anniversary of the attack on Fort Sumter, the as the Klansmen iron their best white sheets, opening battle of the Civil War. That tragic and as they all look back at a time when they conflict, variously known below the Masoncould happily own other human beings, the Dixon line as the War Between the States, the War of Northern Aggression, or even, in a phrase movie might gladden some Southern hearts. It shows, after all, a frightened United States uttered with hand on heart, the Noble Cause, government and a populace still fearing still inspires romantic nostalgia in the bosoms the possibility of insurrection, even after Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox. It also shows a complicated emotional climate, with the American people still divided by hate on both sides, and a concomitant hostility that outlasts both the victories and the defeats. Robin Wright and James McAvoy in “The Conspirator.” PHOTO COURTESY

The picture confronts a little known chapter of American history, the trial of some of the people accused of conspiring to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. After the familiar drama of the assassination, John Wilkes Booth’s famous words, his escape, the manhunt, and his death, it focuses in particular on Mary Surratt (Robin Wright), who owned a boarding house in Washington where Booth and his friends, including her son, plotted the murder of the president and several cabinet members. Accused of complicity in the plot, which she denies, she stands trial before a panel of military judges, a fact that imparts a double relevance to the movie. Some of the characters argue about one of the important questions of “The Conspirator,” the legality and constitutionality of trying civilians in a military court, which should remind audiences of the tribunals conducted by the United States in Guantanamo Bay. The particular tribunal that Mary Surratt faces consists of a gaggle of generals who refuse to disclose any evidence, provide a list of witnesses to the defense, and don’t even allow the accused to testify in her own behalf. Aside from the trial itself, the movie also explores the relationship between Surratt and her lawyer, Frederick Aiken (James McAvoy), himself a war hero, who most reluctantly defends a Southerner who hates the Union that he fought to preserve. Under immense pressure and hamstrung by the recalcitrance

The courage of convictions [REVIEW] BY DAYNA PAPALEO

“Hanna” (PG-13), directed by Joe Wright Now playing

“Of Gods and Men” (PG-13), directed by Xavier Beauvois Now playing

of the presiding generals, he tries every ploy imaginable to deal with perjured testimony, unfair and unethical legal procedures, and the foregone conclusion of the verdict. He comes to admire Mary Surratt’s strength and courage, however, which motivates him to work tirelessly to find evidence, witnesses, and any possible means to win an acquittal. The process of the trial and Aiken’s labors for his client earn him only hostility from everyone around him. He finds the usual rewards for courageous action in an unpopular cause — his friends desert him, his former comrades ostracize him, his military organization dismisses him, and his fiancee rejects him. For all practical purposes the trial costs him both his military honor and his legal career, poor payment for doing the right thing in the wrong place at the wrong time. Although the subjects and themes of “The Conspirator” provide some important parallels with the present, the film itself moves so deliberately that now and then it loses much of its perfectly reasonable and wholly relevant point, both as history and commentary. Using flashbacks to illustrate testimony and following the out-of-court action of Aiken, Redford moves the action beyond the narrow confines of the tribunal, but the picture remains too long, too slow, too talky. The picture reminds us, however, of the title of a famous book on the same subject — “Military Justice is to Justice What Military Music is to Music.”

“I just missed your heart,” the ethereally blue-eyed girl murmurs to the buck she’d been bow-hunting through the wintry Nordic woods, only to whip out a handgun and finish the suffering thing off. In this way we’re given notice that the title character of Joe Wright’s chilly espionage thriller “Hanna” is humane but ruthless, seemingly dissonant qualities that quickly seem logical once we meet her father, who sneaks up on her for an impromptu MMA bout in the snow. It turns out that the pale Hanna (Saoirse Ronan, “The Way Back”) and her furry dad, Erik (Eric Bana, “The Time Traveler’s Wife”), live in this remote forest where he’s taken home-schooling to a whole new level, whittling his own teenage sapling into a polyglot killing machine bent on vengeance. “Hanna” shifts into gear as Hanna embarks upon her destiny, the singular purpose of which is murdering Cate Blanchett. The Academy Award winner

Saoirse Ronan in “Hanna.” PHOTO COURTESY FOCUS FEATURES

(for 2004’s “The Aviator,” remember?) plays Marissa Wiegler, a no-nonsense CIA operative with tight pencil skirts and a shadowy connection to both Erik and Hanna, though her crucial role in Hanna’s bizarre reality will take its time in coming to light. Before the story’s somewhat predictable denouement, however, we’re at least treated to a crackling action flick in the vein of “The Bourne Identity,” one that entertainingly errs on the side of too much as Hanna moves across Northern Africa and Western Europe administering block-rockin’ beatings to an atmospheric, bumping techno score by the Chemical Brothers. Wright last collaborated with Ronan (her first name is pronounced “seershuh,” in case you’ve wondered) on her Oscar-nominated performance in 2007’s “Atonement,” and she rewards his continued faith by owning this demanding role, which alternatively calls for nuanced emotion and punishing physicality. Blanchett is wickedly hammy as the de facto Evil Queen to our snowwhite heroine, while Bana is always best in a supporting part like this where his curious lack of magnetism isn’t allowed to bore anyone (see 2003’s “Hulk”... actually, don’t). For better or for worse, though, “Hanna” is mostly about Wright; interludes like those at the Grimm park exhibit his careful, colorful eye for detail (as well as his typically heavy hand with the symbolism), and that extended shot of Erik being followed from the train station to the subway showcases his skill with the uninterrupted take, a la the virtuoso Dunkirk scene in “Atonement.” I can’t help but liken “Hanna” to last year’s “Kick-Ass,” both of which feature young women whose revenge-minded fathers fashioned their daughters into unquestioning angels of retribution. But where Chloë Moretz’s Hit-Girl seemed to enjoy her destructive mission, Hanna takes no pleasure in killing. We see her

harboring secret longings for a normal life after crossing paths in Morocco with a vacationing family, headed by emerging character MVPs Olivia Williams (“An Education”) and Jason Flemying (“Clash of the Titans”), and tentatively bonding with their similarly aged daughter Sophie (motormouthed scene-stealer Jessica Barden, “Tamara Drewe”). But neither does Hanna seem to feel any particular moral qualms about the blood on her hands, and though this psychological glitch is explained away as part of the film’s oddly anticlimactic revelation, it might be a little late for any real empathy, just missing our hearts, too. In 1996 seven French monks from a

monastery overlooking the village of Tibhirine were kidnapped and assassinated, a fraction of the innocent souls claimed during Algeria’s bloody civil war between its government and Islamist rebel armies. Xavier Beauvois’ absorbing, graceful drama “Of Gods and Men” tells the story of those monks, focusing not on their needless deaths but on their useful lives as members of the otherwise welcoming community, gradually accepting that their calling could mean staying and dying for Him. As one monk puts it, “The Good Shepherd doesn’t abandon his flock to the wolves.” Recognizable French mainstays Lambert Wilson and Michael Lonsdale lead the cast, with serene sequences of daily devotions and household chores woven through natural exchanges depicting the harmony between the Catholic monks and the Muslim villagers as the men of God dispense both medicine and wisdom. That proverbial wolf is at the door, though, in the form of the violent insurgents, but the film’s most compelling scenes are also its most quiet, whether in a tense showdown punctuated by Koranic quotes or the monks individually contemplating whether they have the courage of their convictions to actually make the ultimate sacrifice.

THE BAD NEWS BEARS Thursday, April 21, 8 p.m.

Alcoholic ex-minor leaguer Morris Buttermaker (Walter Matthau) is hired to coach a Little League team full of misfits so uncoordinated they forfeit their first game 26-0. Pulling in two ringers — a tomboy pitcher (Tatum O’Neal) and a bad boy centerfielder (Jackie Earle Haley) — Buttermaker gets the team into shape, but the drive to win pushes him to outrageous extremes. (Michael Ritchie, US 1976, 102 min.)

AND EVERYTHING IS GOING FINE

Friday, April 22, 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 24, 4:30 p.m.

Movies for movie lovers, 6 nights a week. Walter Matthau

In telling the life story of a master storyteller, Steven Soderbergh lets his subject speak for himself. As we watch Spalding Gray present his life through performance, Soderbergh’s careful montage provides further insight, creating a revelatory portrait of an artist defined by self-revelation. (Steven Soderbergh, US 2010, 89 min.)

Designed for Celebrating Life 370 Penfield Road “They just don’t build ‘em like this any more!” That is the first statement visitors might exclaim as they encounter the spacious and welcoming house at 370 Penfield Road, Brighton. It’s true - houses built today don’t have the exquisite crown molding, hardwood floors, built-in linen closets and cupboards, and leaded glass found here in abundance. Surrounded by an acreand-a-half of a naturally landscaped yard, this 4,125-square foot home was built in 1920, and built for celebrations. At the corner of Penfield Road and North Landing Road, the house is a mere ten minutes from downtown and close to shopping in Brighton. With its sylvan surrounding of a large meadow dotted with rhododendrons, forsythia, lilacs, a flowering Hawthorne, and day lilies - the home also provides a retreat from busy life. The house has a brick exterior and tile roof. The front door is surmounted by a detailed pediment and surrounded by leaded-glass windows. It opens into the foyer, which, in turn, opens into the room-sized front hall. The welcoming main staircase leads to a landing with three lovely windows of stained, beveled and leaded-glass that reflect bright colors, even on Rochester’s grayest days. To the right of the front hall is the living room, entered by an expansive open archway. The room, 27’ by 15’, has a wood-burning fireplace topped by an elegant mantelpiece. On either side of the fireplace are French doors leading to a three-season family room

with large windows that bring the lovely outside surroundings inside. To the left of the front hall is a banquet-sized dining room boasting built-in corner cabinets with decorative leaded-glass doors. The solarium adjoining the dining room adds a light-filled space for plants and informal seating, ideal for enjoying a morning cup of coffee. Adjacent to the dining room is the eat-in kitchen. Its wide picture window overlooks the side yard – a perfect spot for bird watching or appreciating new-fallen snow. A powder room is located off the kitchen. On the second floor is the master bedroom with its own bath and a walk-in closet; three more bedrooms and another full bath. The third floor offers two bedrooms, a full bath, and extensive room for storage. Additional features include a back stairway; a dry basement with built-in cupboards; a small study on the first floor, and a detached two-car garage. The list price is $350,000, and the agent is Susan Judson of Re/Max Realty Group. She can be reached at ssj39@aol.com or 585729-4098. An open house will be held on Saturday afternoon, April 23. By Mitzie Collins Mitzie Collins lives in Rochester’s 19th Ward and teaches world music and music history at the Eastman Community Music School.

[ rehabilitating mr. wiggles ] BY neil swaab

[ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

Laney Wallace, 16, won the beauty contest at the 53rd Rattlesnake Roundup in Sweetwater, Texas, in March and the next day fulfilled the first duty of her reign: to behead and skin a western diamondback. “You have to make sure you don’t pop the bladder,” the 2011 Miss Snake Charmer said shortly after taking a few swipes with a machete. “That (would be) a huge mess.” (Three years ago, News of the Weird informed readers of the annual beauty-contest/muskratskinning festival in Maryland’s Eastern Shore region, in which the “beauty” part and the “skinning” part are separate — but in which that year, two teenage girls entered both, with Dakota Abbott edging out Samantha Phillips for the crown.)

Compelling Explanations

-- Record companies have enjoyed recent successes in court by suing individuals who have shared music by trading files through specialized websites that avoid paying copyright licensing fees, including Lime Wire (which shut down last year). Thirteen record companies won a summary judgment last year, and, applying a formula they believe was set out in federal law, the companies demanded that Lime Wire pay damages of up to $75 trillion -- an amount more than five times the entire national debt. In March 2011, a federal judge said the companies should modify the formula and lower their expectations. -- Waterloo, Iowa, schoolteacher Larry Twigg was arrested for “lascivious conduct” with a teenager, a crime that requires proof of “sexual motivation.” Though Twigg allegedly had a teenage boy strip, take a chocolate syrup “bath,” make a “snow angel” while in his underwear, and play a video game nude, his lawyer said in March that the court-appointed psychiatrist would

testify that Twigg had no sexual motivation. -- Convicted heinous Minnesota sex offender John Rydberg, 69 and still detained after having served his sentence because he is still a “danger,” exhibited an upbeat demeanor for a three-judge panel in March, hoping for release. He said his number of victims was far fewer than the “94” he previously admitted to, explaining that he offered a purposely high number because he was afraid underplaying his crimes might make it appear that he was lying. “What can I say?” offered Rydberg. “I’m a work in progress.”

Ironies

-- On March 30, several hours before addressing the nation on TV about Libya, President Obama received a prestigious open-records award presented by five freedom-of-information advocate organizations for running a commendably “transparent,” accessible administration. However, news about this award came about only because the presenters leaked it to the press. As noted by The Washington Post the next day, there was no White House notice to the press; the presentation was not on the president’s calendar; no photos or transcript were available; and the award was not mentioned on the White House website. -- Go Figure: (1) The author of most of the text of The New York Times obituary on Elizabeth Taylor, published on March 23, was Times reporter Mel Gussow, who passed away almost six years before Taylor. (2) At George Washington University’s men’s basketball game on March 5, accountancy department professor Robert Kasmir was honored at halftime for being one of the elite financial donors to the university, but he was not around for the end of the game. He was ejected from the stands in the second half for harassing a referee about the officiating.

It’s important to tell it like it is and to let the connections you make with potential partners unfold naturally. Prejudging someone may cause you to miss a

romantic opportunity. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll meet someone special in the most unusual place or through the most unlikely person. You aren’t likely to recognize the connection you have with this person initially but, as time passes, you will discover how much you have in common and what a good time you have together. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t read something into a gesture of friendliness that is nothing more than a passing flirtation. Protect your heart or you could fall for someone who is only looking for a

one-night-stand. Offer friendship, nothing more. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your dynamic personality will charm any object of your affection. You will have no problem finding love if you socialize or get involved in the dating scene in your community. A lifestyle change is apparent, bringing with it a long-lasting relationship and a major move. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spend more time concentrating on your home, finances and personal contracts this week, instead of confusing matters even more by initiating someone new into your arena. It’s important to know

where you stand and where you are heading before you include a new entity into your lifestyle. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A change in the way you react to others will bring about some interesting and entertaining interactions with potential partners. Don’t hesitate to demonstrate your thoughts regarding love, marriage and what you want a long-term partner. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can’t expect to meet someone you can relate to if you don’t attend activities and events that interest you. The innuendoes that someone makes when discussing

topics such as beliefs and future quests will be key. Chances are good this person is interested in more than friendship. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will attract plenty of partners but not all of them will share your criteria when it comes to a relationship. If someone appears the least bit overbearing or possessive, take a rain check. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your past experience may help you out when it comes to new relationships. At the first sign of instability, insecurity or unpredictability, back away and wait until you meet someone who

is not so needy or likely to make an unsavory scene. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your spunk and imaginative outlook will grab the attention of someone who can relate to your get-up-and-go way of life. Don’t be surprised if it is someone you’ve met in the past but never had a chance to get to know due to your hectic schedules. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t make a relationship choice based on emotional needs. It’s important to take your time and find out how mentally compatible you are before you introduce intimacy to your relationship.
