The super-rich should suck it up
A question: Why was I worth twice as much as a minimum wage worker in 1967 than I would be today? In 1967, I got my first job, washing dishes at a restaurant for a $1.25 hourly minimum wage. That would buy four or five gallons of gas. A onebedroom apartment went for $75 per month. A new Toyota Corolla was $1,800. When the minimum wage was raised by 5 cents, everyone above that also got a little boost. Prices would be slightly adjusted, but no businesses closed and no one lost his or her job. We made a little more, spent a little more, the economy flourished, and the rich got richer. Not hundreds or thousands of times richer like today, but they survived, and so did we. Now, the super-rich are given massive tax breaks. The rich are rewarded with multimillion-dollar bonuses for screwing us, and they tell us to suck it up. Raising the minimum wage to where it should be today is going to cause problems, but maybe the rich should suck it up for a change. And show some appreciation for where their riches came from. I have a beautiful young niece who is about to graduate from high school. She will probably be going out to look for a minimum-wage job as she prepares for college. I look at this intelligent young lady and wonder why she is only worth about half of what I was worth when I was her age. TOM SHEVLIN

Moore has a right to his feelings
Not to belabor the point, but if Henrietta Supervisor Jack Moore had used his position of power to discriminate, belittle, discredit, or otherwise abuse any of the town’s employees, black or white, then I would say he is wrong and should be held accountable for his indiscretion regarding the “city cousins” remark. If, however, he treated all under his jurisdiction fairly and with equality, showing no partiality or bias, then it seems to me that he has a perfect right to express his personal, private feelings to friends and colleagues without fear of being taped, filmed, or otherwise subjected to the ridicule and censure he has endured. Political correctness in a public setting is just good manners and common sense. Political correctness within the sanctity of one’s own personal circle of acquaintances is akin to succumbing to brainwashing in order to keep us all in lockstep to the beat of the brainwasher’s agenda. These were the techniques used by Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia to crush any opposition or free thinking. Please, if a person is doing his job properly in an unbiased manner, leave his personal thoughts and feelings alone. Put your recording devices away. We’ve lost enough of our freedoms without having to worry about our neighbors spying on us. BOB TACITO
What about ethics? The fact is that those who go into politics tend to think they are better than everyone else. They write the rules and exempt themselves from them. JHONALY50

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER
When fear takes charge: terrorism and our rights Immigration, the economy, inequality, climate change, health care, terrorism: candidates for president will have plenty to talk about over the next year and a half. Something to add to that list: government surveillance. Tension between civil rights and the fear of enemy attack seems unavoidable. But too often, fear leads us to question authority too little, and give up too much. Thanks to Edward Snowden, we know some of what we’ve given up. Some. And last week, with the passage of the USA Freedom Act, Congress and the president stemmed a bit of that erosion. The National Security Agency can no longer engage in the bulk collection of Americans’ phone records. Instead, phone companies will keep the data, the NSA has to get a court order to get access to it, and the NSA must show that there’s reasonable suspicion that the data is related to international terrorism. But the Freedom Act reforms aren’t enough. “In truth,” writes The Nation’s David Cole, “the USA Freedom Act addresses only a small fraction of the NSA’s dragnet surveillance operation, and will leave most of the problematic programs Edward Snowden disclosed untouched.” The Freedom Act addresses problems in a section of the Patriot Act, passed after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Writing recently in the Washington Post, John Napier Tye, a former State Department official who worked on global internet policy, insisted that Americans should be “even more concerned about the collection and storage of their communications” under a 1981 Executive Order. The order deals with foreign intelligence investigations, not domestic, and US citizens, permanent residents, and companies can’t be “individually targeted under 12333 without a court order,” Tye writes. But if our communication is “incidentally” captured, it can be kept. Nor is this simply a collection of metadata; Executive Order 12333 authorizes the NSA to capture, read, and keep the contents of e-mails. While the order deals with communications outside the US, the internet knows no borders. Communications between people and companies within the US are often transmitted or stored abroad. And critics in Congress say there is very little oversight of the NSA’s actions. “What Snowden showed,” writes Tye, “is that unless we are aware of the scope of what the government is doing when it spies on us, we are unlikely to be able to control it.” It’s not that terrorism presents no danger. But the issue is how we respond. Intelligence officials have presented no evidence that the bulk collection of communications data has prevented a terrorist attack. And the assault on Americans’ civil liberties is clear.
Recent polls indicate that Americans want government surveillance reined in. But a new terrorist attack could change that."
Recent polls indicate that Americans want government surveillance reined in. But a new terrorist attack – or a president exaggerating intelligence reports of the danger – could change that in the bat of an eye. And this country has a sordid history of over-reacting to fear. In a book I’ve found particularly enlightening, “Fear Itself: The New Deal and the Origins of Our Time,” author Ira Katznelson details some of America’s reactions to fear. “FDR authorized wiretaps against Americans thought to be Nazi spies,” Katznelson writes, “even though Congress had explicitly banned the practice.” Congress authorized Roosevelt “to order the surveillance and censorship of mail, telegraph cable communications, and radio broadcasts ‘when deemed necessary to the public safety.’” And, writes Katznelson: “The Justice Department, the Department of War, the various armed services, and specialized agencies such as the Office of War Information and the Office of Censorship kept persistent watch over African-American reporters and editors.” We tolerated the internment of Japanese Americans. Fear of communism generated the McCarthy era. Those, of course, were different times, with different threats. But fear is fear. And as we saw after 9/11, it can wipe out caution and skepticism. It’s way past time for a full-blown discussion of fear-inspired secrecy and abuse of power. That’s an awfully good topic for a presidential election campaign.

Medical marijuana in Rochester?
Alexander Street may become home to a medical marijuana dispensary. According to the Democrat and Chronicle, a company based in Long Island, PalliaTech, says that it will apply for one of five medical marijuana licenses in the state with plans to put a dispensary on Alexander. The D&C says that at least four Rochester-area companies plan to apply for licenses.
New event replaces East End fest
Smaller celebrations will take the place of Rochester’s East End Festival. The event helped remake the once-blighted East End into a thriving entertainment district. The last festival was June 12. The new events will be smaller, free, and promote the local neighborhood throughout the summer, the festival’s website says. A trial run of the new event will take place on August 14.
RIT’s Miller dies Paul Miller, former president of the Rochester Institute of Technology, died at age 98. Miller managed the relocation of the RIT campus from
downtown Rochester to Henrietta in 1968, and oversaw the development of RIT’s National Institute for the Deaf. Miller served from 1969 to 1979 and was the school’s sixth president.
Fracking risks to water
The Environmental Protection Agency released a long-awaited draft study of fracking’s impact on water resources. While fracking in the US has been done in a way that has not systemically impacted drinking water, the study says, there are vulnerabilities. The EPA analyzed state and industry well and spill data for the report.

Unitarians back off fossil fuels
The Unitarian Church has long been associated with social justice and environmental protection. Its role as an activist investor, however, isn’t as well known.
No Brizard in Buffalo
Jean-Claude Brizard won’t be heading up Buffalo’s schools, after all. Despite earlier reports, the former Rochester and Chicago schools superintendent is not among the 20 candidates who applied for the superintendent’s job, according to the Buffalo News. School officials heard public input recently regarding the search and the community seemed less interested in someone who is unfamiliar with Buffalo and its schools, the newspaper said.

Last year, the church’s governing body decided to shift its investments out of fossil fuel stocks. And First Unitarian Church in Rochester could soon do the same. First Unitarian’s trustees were expected to vote on a fossil fuel divestment proposal on Tuesday. The measure was hammered out over the course of a year by the church’s environmental and investment committees. (First Universalist Church of Rochester has been gradually reducing its investment in fossil fuels.) “Divesting our assets is something that we, as a church, as a community, can do,” says John Keevert, the church’s social justice chair and environmental committee co-chair. “There’s no guarantee it’s going to have great results, but it is something we can do that moves us in a positive direction.” Dave Friedman, chair of the church’s investment committee, says that the process should take a few
years. First Unitarian’s endowment isn’t invested in individual stocks, he says, but in high-performing, lowfee collections of stocks known as index funds. The church works with an advisor to make sure its investments are diversified and produce good returns, he says. The divestment proposal would be an addition to church investment policy. It would give the church’s financial advisor guidance to invest its money in high-performing, low-fee, fossil fuel-free funds. There aren’t many of those funds available now, Friedman says, but the hope is that as more congregations eye divestment, they’ll become more common. Keevert estimates that around 5 percent of the church’s $3.2 million endowment is invested in fossil fuel stocks. Because the money is invested in index funds, he says, it’s tough to pin the figure down.

Charter schools are public schools, says Harold Hinds, legal director for Northeast Charter Schools Network, so “there’s no reason why they should be treated differently from their counterparts in traditional districts when it comes to funding and resources.”
EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO
Charter suit could be a milestone The five families from Rochester and Buffalo who are suing the state over funding for charter schools will have their day in court. State Supreme Court Justice Donna Siwek last month refused to dismiss the case. “This means the court believes that this case has merit,” says Harold Hinds, legal director for Northeast Charter Schools Network. “It could be a very big case, and frankly we’re hoping that it is.” The families say that the state’s funding formula is unconstitutional. If they win, the ramifications for education funding in New York could be huge. State officials could be required to treat New York’s charter schools like traditional public schools by providing parity in funding. Hinds says that he doesn’t know if the state will appeal Siwek’s decision. In the suit filed last year, Brown v. New York, the parents of the charter school students say that inequitable funding prevents charter students from getting the sound and basic education that the state is obligated by law to provide. Charter schools in Rochester and Buffalo receive about 60 cents for every $1 allocated for students in traditional public schools, the suit says. It amounts to a per-pupil disparity
of nearly $10,000, the suit says. Charter schools are public schools, Hinds says, so “there’s no reason why they should be treated differently from their counterparts in traditional districts when it comes to funding and resources.” Maria Dalmau, a Rochester parent and plaintiff in the case, enrolled her daughter in Eugenio Maria de Hostos Charter School as a kindergartener. Her daughter is in third grade now and doing well in the dual-language, K-8 school, Dalmau says. “We are not any different than the other district families,” she says. “As a taxpayer, as a Rochester citizen, we’re part of the public school system.” Dalmau says that her main reason for pursuing litigation is building space. Eugenio Maria de Hostos is split between two buildings that are about a mile apart. Teachers and administrators have to run back and forth between the buildings, she says. Maria de Hostos officials want to purchase a building that houses all of the students together, Dalmau says, and has enough space for the school to grow. Funding for building space is a common concern for charter schools, Hinds says. “Facilities are a major hurdle for us,” he says.

The case does run counter, however, to earlier claims by some charter advocates that the schools get results on less money. “We are doing great things with less money and one hand tied behind our back,” Hinds says. “But that doesn’t mean it’s O.K. Imagine what these schools would do with more funding.”
PUBLIC SAFETY | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN
No Taser ban The Rochester Police Department will not stop using Tasers “at this time,” says police spokesperson Jacqueline Shuman. Some Rochester church leaders called for a temporary ban on Taser use following the death of Richard Davis. Davis, 50, died after he was shocked by a Rochester police officer during a recent altercation in the city. It’s not known if the shock contributed to his death. The church leaders said that they wanted a ban so that the department could review its policies regarding Taser use. Shuman says that the investigation into Davis’ death is ongoing, and that the department will review its policy on Taser training “once all the facts of this event are known.” According to a press release, Tasers have been used by the RPD 576 times since 2003, and that the department currently has 228 Tasers in service. The release also includes statistics on the efficacy of Tasers. Between January 1, 2009, and August 8, 2012, it says, a Taser had been used 231 times with an effectiveness rate of 89 percent. The rate is gauged by the physical force needed after Tasing to take a subject into custody.

GOVERNMENT | BY JEREMY MOULE
Ethics boards: you’ve got it all wrong When Donald Youngman heard his boss, Henrietta Town Supervisor Jack Moore, make what he felt were inappropriate remarks, he filed a complaint with the town’s ethics board — which, on the surface, seems like a logical course of action. The circumstances behind Youngman’s complaint are now well-known. Youngman, a 36-year town employee, overheard Moore talking to Henrietta public works staff, and referring to African Americans as “city cousins” — remarks that have been generally interpreted as a racial slur. The ethics board dismissed Youngman’s complaint, however, saying that it doesn’t have jurisdiction to consider the matter. The outcome frustrated many people and provided fodder for town Democrats, who say that it’s “another example of how Henrietta’s town government is broken” under Moore. But the board’s decision was bound to be a letdown. Just as in other towns, villages, and cities across Monroe County and New York State, Henrietta’s ethics board operates in an advisory capacity only. The board is geared toward helping municipal employees and officials avoid potential conflicts of interest. It doesn’t enforce laws or mete out punishments; its most powerful tool is an opinion that town officials can use in decision-making. “The way the media portrayed it was like the system was rigged, and they copped out, and they didn’t do what they should have been doing,” says Mark Costello, an attorney with Boylan Code who advised the Henrietta ethics board on the Moore complaint. “The truth is these guys made a really difficult decision because they knew it’d be ugly in the press.” State law requires municipalities to establish ethics boards and lays out the boards’ fundamental duties. The members are appointed by the respective town boards, village boards, and city councils and they serve without pay. But the reality is that ethics boards are often pulled into political disputes, and that distorts the public’s understanding of what they do. The boards are often seen as arbiters of proper behavior for government officials when, in reality, their focus is narrow and their powers are limited. The Henrietta ethics board doesn’t have a complaint review process since it isn’t intended for that purpose, Costello says. And it doesn’t have the power to remove elected town officials from office — only a state judge responding to legal action by a town resident can do that. The ethics board dismissed the Moore matter because it is, essentially, an after-the-fact HR issue, Costello says.

The City of Rochester’s ethics board was
in the spotlight last year after City Council member Adam McFadden was appointed temporary head of the Rochester Housing Authority. It’s a good example of how the boards typically work. City Council member Jackie Ortiz requested an advisory opinion from the board on McFadden’s appointment. She wanted to know whether McFadden’s two jobs conflicted with each other, since City Council approves compensation for RHA employees. She also requested opinions on whether there’s a conflict in having a city law department representative on the RHA board, and whether it’s appropriate for the wife of McFadden’s legislative aide to serve on the board. The board’s majority ultimately decided that any conflicts created by McFadden’s appointment were minor and could be addressed by McFadden recusing himself from voting on RHA matters. McFadden eventually gave up the job at the insistence of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. The agency said that his appointment violated conflict of interest provisions in HUD’s contract with the city. The board’s review of the McFadden appointment was actually its second highprofile case in 2014. In January, the board was set to review Mayor Lovely Warren’s temporary hiring of her uncle, Reggie Williams, as part of her security detail. Williams, who was retiring from the state police at the time, resigned before the review,
which was then called off. State and local ethics laws all contain anti-nepotism provisions. But t hose rules don’t prohibit family members of elected officials from holding government jobs or receiving government contracts. Officials just can’t favor family members in awarding contracts or hiring. Henrietta Democratic Committee leader
Simeon Banister says that his town’s ethics board still should have taken a position on the issues raised in Youngman’s complaint. In a statement after the board’s ruling, the committee broke out sections of the town’s ethics code it says justified a review of Moore’s actions. The board is given the power to review whether an employee is abiding by the standards of conduct spelled out in the ethics code, Banister says. Specifically, Banister points to a clause that says that no Henrietta officer or employee “shall violate any town or departmental policy governing conduct by officers or employees.” And the town employee handbook contains anti-discrimination policies, he says. But the handbook also lays out a process for town employees to file complaints about co-worker behavior. In most cases, the complaints would go to the town supervisor, who decides whether disciplinary action is warranted. If the
complaint involves the supervisor, it’s routed to the human resources director, who is appointed by the supervisor. “The line of responsibility always points back to the supervisor,” Banister says. For that reason, the ethics board was the appropriate authority to handle Youngman’s complaint, Banister says. The complaint also points toward a bigger issue, he says, which is Moore’s conduct toward employees. The supervisor is the subject of three complaints with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, all of which allege derogatory or harassing comments and actions. Moore, for his part, has said that employees are upset because he’s running Town Hall like a business and they aren’t used to that. He’s said he’s sorry for the “city cousins” remarks, that he’s taken diversity training, and that he has no plans to resign, though some prominent Republicans have said that he should. He’s said that voters will decide in November whether he should keep his job. Moore is up for re-election this year and faces a challenge from former Henrietta Supervisor Mike Yudelson. The contest is a rematch of the 2013 election, when Moore unseated Yudelson, who started the election season as a Republican and ended it as a Democrat.

Antonetta's on Jay Street solidly executes Italian classics with a hint of modernization. On the menu are dishes like (left) the tripe and oxtail appetizer, (middle) peanut butter and jelly creme brulee, and (right) the ole staple, greens and beans. PHOTOS BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
Red sauce done right Antonetta’s 1160 JAY STREET MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, 11 A.M. TO 3 P.M.; THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, 4:30 P.M. TO 9 P.M. 328-1830 [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM
There is something about the sauce at Antonetta’s that grabbed me right from the first bite of the slow braised pork ($6). The pork was cooked in the house red sauce and the combination led to a fantastically simple dish with a surprising amount of depth. That’s not to say that I had low expectations coming in; having eaten the tasty meatballs at chef-owner Matt Petrillo’s Meatball Truck at Food Truck Rodeos in the past, I had an idea about what I was getting into. What did surprise me was how much of a chameleon that red sauce turned out to be. The pork dish probably brought the most balanced version to the table with the sharpness of the sauce tamed by the meat juices, having been cooked down to a richer consistency. As for which red sauce dish was my favorite, there was a race between the tripe and oxtail appetizer ($7) and the eggplant parmesan ($10). The flavor and consistency of the sauce was completely different in each but complemented the
style of the dish in both cases. The sauce around the tender honeycomb tripe and oxtail became thicker and much mellower after being cooked with the bits of offal. Yes, it did carry a touch of that “barnyard” aroma, as Andrew Zimmern coined it, but the gelatin and fat from the oxtail gave the sauce an irresistible meaty body. In contrast, the eggplant parmesan had the unadulterated version covering the perfectly fried aubergine circles. What also impressed was the around half-inchthick slices of eggplant that just crossed into being tender without overcooking. So many times the eggplant can just melt into the fried coating and become non-descript, but thankfully these were executed well. The chicken parmesan ($11) had a similar formulation but the eggplant was better seasoned and just worked better on the plate. I think that is the biggest takeaway from Antonetta’s as a whole: solid execution of classics with just a hint of modernization. The Italian American menu doesn’t shy away from the massive portions that have made it popular with its regulars and it remains grounded in the past. Edges like panko breadcrumbs used for breading and rotating seasonal specials on the glass board help to bring some newness to the table. A good example was the cavatelli special ($15) that featured a dense handmade pasta
highlighted by an oily, fresh vegetal sauce, briny olives and a beet powder dusting. I consistently enjoyed the seasoning level on the dishes, and the greens and beans ($6) was no different. Sure, this was on the salty side of the scale but the escarole and cannellini beans met the textbook definition of the dish. Sausage brought the meatiness and the greens and beans were just above completely falling apart. My dining partner and I adored this and wiped up every last drop of the sauce. Speaking of the sausage, I was also impressed when it was served as a stewed link over the housemade gnocchi ($13). The gnocchi had a slight density to them and carried the sauce well. Fried calamari capone ($12) was one of the only missteps during our meals at Antonetta’s. The poppy seed studded creamy sauce was too sweet for the squid pieces and the only bites that worked were the ones with banana pepper or olive. One part of the meals that had basically no criticism were the two desserts we sampled. Peanut butter creme brulee ($6) was smooth on the inside, crunchy on the outside and chock full of nutty goodness. This elicited groans at the table and it made for a fascinating dipping sauce for the fried dough slices as well. I
really enjoyed the creme brulee but those cinnamon sugar and icing covered pieces of dough were perfect both by themselves and as a vehicle for the peanut butter pudding portion. Along with the majority of the menu, the decor is rooted in the past as well, with photos of Sinatra dotting the wood paneling and plastic table covers adorning the classic tables. What it lacks in slick modern touches, it makes up for in homey charm. And speaking of charm, on the second visit, my friend and I had the pleasure of being served by one of the dedicated waitresses who has called Antonetta’s home since long before the recent owner transition. She was attentive despite a crowded dining room and brought the sass to us young-ish fellows throughout our meal in the best possible way. As I mentioned before, Chef Petrillo is the force behind The Meatball Truck. If you find yourself at Antonetta’s for lunch you can give those same balls a try alongside some Flour City Bread and ricotta cheese. Whether on the truck or on the plate, the tender balls of meat are worth seeking out. You can read more from Chris Lindstrom or listen to his podcast on his food blog, foodabouttown.com.

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVENUE 9 P.M. | $8-$10 | BUGJAR.COM; KINGGIZZARDANDTHELIZARDWIZARD.COM [ ROCK ] These guys are hard to pin down and pleasantly
so. And with little bio info out there and minimal selfdescription of their music they seem to like it that way. It’s a bit garage, a bit surf, a bit of jazz with some rich rock riffs. The lyrics, like the music, seem more interested to explore rather than arrive at a certain place. All the way over from Melbourne, Australia, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard offers up a pleasant elixir of different.
— BY TYLER PEARCE
If you haven’t yet heard of Brooklyn-based guitarist Chris Biesterfeldt it’s probably because he’s spent so much of his career in the shadows. He was literally under the stage in the pit bands of Broadway shows like “Rent,” “Pippin,” and “Hairspray,” and he has contributed to the soundtracks of TV shows like “Sesame Street.” But you can only hide phenomenal dexterity and wonderful style for so long; it’s time for Biesterfeldt to be recognized. His new album, a tribute to the great pianist Phineas Newborn, should take care of that. The songs on “Phineas” are either written by Newborn or were performed memorably by him. Beisterfeldt’s arrangements — with excellent support by Jared Schonig on drums and Matthew Rybicki, bass — are based on Newborn’s piano-oriented renditions, but they translate beautifully to guitar. Biesterfeldt possesses a breezy touch in his chording that animates every track. As far as the solos go, his fingers just fly over the fret board on tunes like “Manteca” and “Blues from Phineas” (Biesterfeldt’s only original tune on the album). But he is equally effective when he slows down on the beautiful ballad “The Midnight Sun Will Never Set” or gets into a mid-tempo groove on a tune like “Sweet and Lovely.” — BY RON NETSKY
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Following its raucous 2012 album, “Meat and Bone,” New York City’s The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion returns with yet another descent into garage chaos and mad boogie. Throughout its career (a near quarter century) the band hasn’t drifted that far from a sound it has perfected; it ain’t broke. It all starts with Spencer’s ravings like a deranged Elvis Falwell at the church of Sun Records via a mic technique he could’ve gotten from Lux Interior or George “The Animal” Steele. Add to that one of the most savage, versatile drummers today, Russell Simins, and the tres cool Judah Bauer on guitar to counter Spencer’s lo-fi, drop-tune, six-string growl. Word-wise, this 13-track platter celebrates NYC: “The hustler and the trust fund baby, the mosh pit casualty, the celebrity chef, the crooked cop, the struggling artist, the sucker MC, the forgotten sex workers, and Last-Chance Cinderellas,” according to Spencer. Get down with the Blues Explosion. This record is a winner. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Band of brothers Jeff the Brotherhood WITH LAMBY AND THE GINGER FAYE BAKERS SATURDAY, JUNE 13 BUG JAR, 219 MONROE AVENUE 9 P.M. | $12-$14 | BUGJAR.COM; JEFFTHEBROTHERHOOD.COM [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE
There’s a distinct difference between a duo and a two-piece band. Nashville’s Jeff the Brotherhood is two cats, brothers in fact, that make up a two-piece band. But they ain’t a duo, Gumby. The band’s very existence since 2001 has helped clarify the duo-two piece conundrum. And it’s all in the size of the band’s sound. For just two musicians, Jeff the Brotherhood is huge — huge, I tell ya. It covers the sound spectrum completely. You don’t miss a goddamn thing. Guitarist Jake Orrall serves up a grungy wash of psychedelia and hard rock. Listening on the periphery, you’ll hear him come close to drop-tuned metal, a la Black Sabbath, and the blues without ever blatantly tapping into them. Regardless, it’s massive as it rises above the crack and boom of his brother Jamin’s percussive thunder. At times, you might be tempted into classifying the band as stoner rock but Jeff the Brotherhood has too much motion and boogie than the requisite genre’s grinding dirge. Simply put, it’s rock ‘n’ roll. The band is a cult favorite live, with its relentless energy and volume. SPIN Magazine referred to the band as one of its “must-see acts” in 2011. The brothers have rocked stages big and small, nationally and internationally, and they’ve invaded living rooms via David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. Not to be confused with any other twopiece, White Keyed, Black Striped band
out there, Jeff the Brotherhood recently ramped things up by bringing along another guitar player to add to the weight. Jeff the Brotherhood has worked with artists as diverse as Jack White and Insane Clown Posse, and runs its own Infinity Cat record label. The latest album — the band’s ninth among a huge catalogue of singles and splits — is “Wasted on the Dream,” where the band may have beefed the sonics up a bit while leaving the sheer intensity and immediacy intact. City Newspaper shot a few short questions at Jake Orrall. He shot back some even shorter answers, for instance… City: What are the advantages to being a two-piece? Jake Orrall: We aren’t a two piece anymore on
stage, but off stage it’s less paperwork.
What are the disadvantages to being a two-piece?
Less people to carry gear, and getting compared to other two-piece bands we sound nothing like. How do you describe your music?
Hard rock. How does the new album differ from your previous work?
It has bass on it. How has the band remained the same?
We still play rock music Any new influences or sounds you’ve added?
I have a delay pedal now. What is something you’ll never do?
Cut my own dick off.

Though not particularly well-known outside his home town of Austin, Texas, musician Jon Dee Graham is somewhat of a legend. He’s played with Alejandro Escovedo in the True Believers, and guitar in John Doe’s band. Electrically, the man wails; acoustically, he’ll give your goosebumps goosebumps.

HIP-HOP | FUTURE
POP | MEN WITHOUT HATS
It’s cars, cash, gold, and girls; and in three short years, Future seems to have quickly raced to the front of the rap scene. In a handful of music videos, he’s already collaborated with Kanye West (“I Won”), Miley Cyrus (“Real and True”), and Pharrell (“Move That Dope”). Born Navyvadius Wilburn, this 25-year-old from Atlanta saw an early buzz off his mixtapes and first single “Tony Montana.” He got his catchy choruses, crafted cadence, and smooth lyrical delivery signed with Epic Records and you get the feeling this is just the beginning for his young swagger.
People underestimate how cutting-edge Canadian synth-pop band Men Without Hats was back in the 1980’s. Lead singer Ivan Doroschuk’s baritone sprechgesang on “The Safety Dance” paid homage to rappers like Grandmaster Flash as the tune’s three-chord riff simultaneously was pummeled into your head. “The Safety Dance” was actually meant to be a protest song inspired by Doroschuk’s ejection from clubs because of his dangerous dancing. The Men Without Hats anthem is just the tip of a discography that includes its other Billboard Top 20 hit (“Pop Goes The World”) and latest album, “Love in the Age of War,” the band’s first release after a 9-year hiatus. China Crisis opens the show.
Future performs on Saturday, June 13, at the Main Street Armory, 900 East Main Street. 7:30 p.m. $50-$75. mainstreetarmory.com; futurefreebandz.com. — BY TYLER PEARCE Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. 232-1520. themontagemusichall.com. 7:30 p.m. $17.

Gregory Vajda guest conducted the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra during its season finale performance of “Carmina Burana.” PHOTO COURTESY RPO
Getting medieval with Orff Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra WITH ROCHESTER ORATORIO SOCIETY AND BACH CHILDREN’S CHORUS REVIEWED THURSDAY, JUNE 4 RPO.ORG [ REVIEWS ] BY DAVID RAYMOND
Choral groups have few blue-chip certainties in the 20th-century repertoire, but Carl Orff’s “Carmina Burana” is definitely one of them. With music that has been pilfered for movies, commercials, video games, rock albums, and sitcom episodes, Orff’s “scenic cantata” always draws a crowd — and the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and the Oratorio Society surely counted on that for its season finale. The full orchestra, choristers of all ages, and three soloists crammed the Kodak Hall stage and poured out to the boxes to present this ever-popular salute to wine, women, and (lest we forget) Fortune. It is based on 12th- and 13th-century poems, in Latin and medieval German, by wandering scholars and defrocked priests. 16 CITY JUNE 10-16, 2015
Their preoccupations were the eternal verities: drinking, enjoying nice weather, eating roast swan (see below) and, to quote one of the songs, “felix coniunctio”, which means just what you think it means. (The RPO program includes a booklet translating all the bawdy words). I believe Orff made up all his own tunes, and he produced some simple but stubborn earworms. Comparing higherminded 20th-century choral works like Stravinsky’s “Symphony of Psalms” or Britten’s “War Requiem” to “Carmina Burana” is like comparing filet mignon to a double cheeseburger — bearing in mind that a well-prepared cheeseburger may not be good for you, but it’s very tasty. Many fancy soloists and conductors like getting medieval with Carl Orff, and audiences love it when they do. (Take that, Stravinsky!) Leading a huge work like “Carmina Burana” must be like steering an 18-wheeler. This isn’t really a work that needs much “interpreting,” but a performance does need to be tight and exciting, and the chorus, soloists, and orchestra certainly delivered on Thursday

The Old Toad CASK FEST 2015
night under the direction of guest conductor Gregory Vajda. The Oratorio Society is a sizeable group, well-prepared (their Latin patter was excellent) and mostly well-balanced. At times I could occasionally barely hear the chorus over the orchestra, but I think this was because of my seat location close to the front. I assume that the blend is better further back, or in the balcony. To be sure, this was not a concern in the famous wall-of-sound chorus, “O Fortuna,” which bookends the piece and definitely registered. The Bach Children’s Chorus, singing from memory, added a pleasingly pure touch to their numbers. (Do their parents know they’re singing words like, “I am burning all over with first love”?) Sitting so close to the stage, however, enabled me to enjoy the soloists fully. Orff gave his soprano, tenor, and baritone some very challenging music to sing. Soprano Leslie Ann Bradley made “In Trutina” a silvery moment of repose among all the bawdry, and Anton Belov interpreted the baritone role (who spends much of his time trying to convince the soprano to give herself to him) very effectively as a mini-Don Giovanni. The tenor gets only one aria in “Carmina Burana,” but it’s a killer: a swan’s lament as he roasts on a spit, with a multitude of extremely high, loud notes. Anthony Webb, in a literal walk-on role, handled this smashingly, hitting every note spot-on and interpreting with a welcome, macabre sense of humor. “Carmina Burana” wasn’t the only item that rocked the house in this concert. It opened with two very appealing works in a Latin vein. The RPO premiere of Roberto Sierra’s “Fandangos” introduced a colorful and artfully repetitive work that has become very popular since its premiere in 2001. I can see why: it is an ideal modern-but-nottoo-modern concert opener, energetic and splendiferously scored in the slowly-drive-youout-of-your-mind style of Ravel’s “Boléro,” and the orchestra played it splendidly. Alberto Ginastera’s “Estancia” ballet suite is a bit more familiar, something like Aaron Copland’s “Rodeo” set in Argentina, with gauchos instead of cowboys. It’s excitingly rhythmic and lyrical by turns, but mostly exciting: the concluding “Malambo” is as noisy and exhilarating an orchestral rave-up as anyone ever wrote. Gregory Vajda and the RPO gave Ginastera’s piece an aerobic workout of a performance that would make Copland’s cowboys, and even Orff’s lusty students, look downright prim.

Installation view of one of three stairs installed on the grounds of George Eastman House, as part of the “Peter Greenaway — Stairs 1: Geneva, the Location” exhibition. PHOTO PROVIDED
A view anew “Peter Greenaway — The Stairs: Geneva, the Location” THROUGH SEPTEMBER 20 GEORGE EASTMAN HOUSE, 900 EAST AVENUE TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY, 10 A.M. TO 5 P.M.; SUNDAY, 11 A.M. TO 5 P.M. $5-$14, FREE TO MEMBERS AND CHILDREN 12 AND YOUNGER | 271-3361; EASTMANHOUSE.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
In the early 1990’s, as the medium of film’s centennial approached, British filmmaker Peter Greenaway decided to hold a series of 10 exhibitions in capital cities around Europe. Each of these exhibitions would, in its own way, reflect upon the language and the history of film. This first installment, held in Geneva, Switzerland, was about location — more specifically, storytelling through the curatorial act of framing bits of an environment. A new, multi-media exhibition at George Eastman House explores the lofty, yet commonplace, concepts behind this work. In 1994, Greenaway installed 100 whitepainted, monolithic wooden staircases in 18 CITY JUNE 10-16, 2015
Geneva, each custom built to their setting and leading to a flat wall which obstructed the view ahead. These walls were outfitted with a tiny peep hole into a rectangular frame, through which solitary viewers could peek at the world. Through the viewfinder, sections of reality became intimately-sized “silver screens,” a picture plane with a progression of people and daylight marching against the backdrop of beautiful architecture and manicured nature. Greenaway visited Rochester in 1997 to present his 1995 film, “Stairs 1 — Geneva,” made after the public installation. Years later, Eastman House acquired the master tape of the work as well as exhibition rights. For the duration of this current exhibition, the 107-minute piece will screen continuously in the museum’s Project Gallery. The HD digital transfer of Greenway’s original tape showcases each of the 100 Geneva viewpoints in an experimental frames-withinframes format, and includes a narration of what the viewer is seeing. The viewfinders framed many monuments
and sites of historic import, but not exclusively — “Some were just in an alley way, or on a residential street…almost a little absurd, meta-commentary on the show,” says
Ryan Conrath, the show’s co-curator and moving image fellow at Eastman House. During the run of his exhibition in Geneva, Greenaway planned moments of theatrics with actors, to be spied from the stairs, but the installations also offered plenty of moments of unplanned observation of passersby, who were perhaps oblivious to their witnesses. “He was interested in showing the figure of the tourist, but making that cinematic,” Conrath says. The interaction between viewer and curated scenes created a set of live motion pictures: the architecture serves as staging, while weather, time of day, and the candid observation of passersby are the happenstance elements that makes the experience unique to each and every viewer. In addition to screening Greenaway’s film, Eastman House has three such sets of stairs installed on its grounds. One is in front of the mansion on the East Avenue side, visible from the street and focused on the front entrance and part of the pathway wrapping the building. Another set is situated in the terrace garden, pointed through the green space toward the east side of the house, where there is currently a bit of restoration effort going on, providing an extra kick of daily shift in what’s pictured. And a third is inside the gallery space, pointing
“push for a more frequent and systematic presence of contemporary art,” says co-curator and senior curator of motion pictures at Eastman House, Paolo Cherchi Usai. “I think there is a profound connection between the nature of the work and the mission of the museum,” Usai says. “In essence, ‘Stairs 1 — Geneva’ is a work about the act of seeing. I cannot think of a more compelling relationship between this work and what the museum does in general: explaining the act of seeing through the reproduced image.” Also on display in the Project Gallery is a grid of 100 iconic images from the history of cinema — stills from 100 films in which staircases play an important role, beginning in 1914 with “Caberia” and ending in 2014 with “Journey to the West.” Some objects take on a privileged position in visual storytelling, Usai says. “Stairs are important because they are the artificial architectural element that redefines our perception of space,” adding a vertical dimension to the screen. Echoing Greenaway’s focus on the frame, and selection, each still showcases staircases, isolated from the environment of the film. “Just as with the stairways, when the viewer steps away, they’ll see the environment again in new way,” Conrath says. Though the “Stairs” in Geneva, and the subsequent film, were meant to be the first
installment in a cycle of 10 works, all dedicated to different aspects of the cinematic experience and the act of seeing, Greenaway abandoned the project after just two more cities. The next manifestation took place in Munich, with a focus on “projection”; another planned for (but not completed in) Barcelona was to address the concept of “audience.” Greenaway has a self-professed tendency to leave things unfinished, forsaking one thing to move on to the next. “It’s another way of saying the act of viewing, of picking the frame, is our limited, incomplete, ultimately failed attempt to bring order to chaos,” Usai says. This is certainly true of individuals — we each have a frustratingly limited, incomplete picture of the whole, so we curate our existences all the time, framing fragments of reality to urge manageable, if artificial, bits of sense from the greater environment of chaos. But because of Greenaway’s emphasis on participation of the viewer, the work continues to take on its own life. “To bring in the audience is to make the work necessarily more dynamic and to expand the frames of the work,” Conrath says.

A SUMMARY OF THIS WEEK’S PAPER
ART | TOM KIRN COLLECTION AT NYMT
Celebrating a defunct facet of Rochester history, the New York Museum of Transportation (6393 East River Road, Rush) presents a collection of works by Tom Kirn, a Rochester-native who captures the story of the subway system through both photos and illustrations.
WEEKEND PLANNER AWESOME THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND
The Rochester Subway, which ran from 1927 to 1956 and forged from an abandoned portion of the Erie Canal, has fallen into a state of decay since its closing. Once a symbol of the blossoming wealth in Rochester, the subway today stands as a haven both for graffiti art as well as a sizable portion of Rochester’s homeless population. Kirn, who grew up feeling the vibrations in his bedroom window as the trolley cars rolled by, aims at not only capturing the history of the subway in his collection, but also the emotions and nostalgia gathered from his memories of the subway system. As city officials continue with the arduous task of deciding what to do with the tunnels, the Kirn’s art offers a chance to see what the Rochester subway means to a Rochestarian, and how pivotal this webbing of concrete caverns is to his memory and identity. Tom Kirn’s artwork can be seen at the NYMT on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors over 65, and $6 for youths under 12.

READ CITY ONLINE EVERY WEEK AT SPECIAL EVENT | POP-UP ART SHOW
The pop-up art show, a concept based around art exhibitions placed in non-traditional locales, has experienced increasing popularity in the U.S. in the last decade, and Rochester is no exception. Local artist Joan Rusitzky will host a Pop-Up Art Show, her fourth since 2012, at the former Fleet Feet Store (2210 Monroe Avenue) from Friday, June 12, through Sunday, June 14. Inspired by a New York Times article profiling New York City pop-up gallery organizer Amy Smith-Stewart, Rusitzky says she hopes to organize an event which brings artists across a broad range of mediums together with the public in a uniquely intimate way. Featured artists include wood turner Harry Beaver, etcher Elizabeth Durand, sculptor and furniture-maker Scott Grove (artwork pictured), purse-maker Chi Soo, bird carver Robin Salsbury, mechanical wood sculptor Don Olney, jacket and quilt maker Janet Root, Kelly Waldt of Turi Jane jewelry, illustrator Nancy Wiley, figurative wood-worker Cheryl Olney, and photographer Randi Winterman.
Seneca Park Zoo will host “Seeing Animals through Different Eyes,” an event designed for patrons to get a fresh look at the Zoo through creative engagement. Chesler Photography, Sigma, and the Irondequoit Art Club have partnered to bring in artists to help provide patrons with the means to reevaluate the familiar Zoo, and to highlight its diversity. These artists will be stationed throughout the Zoo all day. The Zoo’s volunteer educators will also be around the grounds, giving information about the animals. Sigma and Chesler Photography will provide a photo workstation where attendees can test different lenses and settings with a professional photographer on hand. Visitors are also encouraged to submit their own photos and artistic renderings from their day at the Zoo to be displayed on the grounds as further inspiration. Submissions can be sent to email@example.com, tag the Zoo or use #SPZDifferentEyes.
Admission to the pop-up gallery is free, with viewings running from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Friday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. — BY GINO FANELLI

COMEDY | SHAWN WAYANS
Comedian Shawn Wayans is best known for his sprawling filmography alongside brothers Keenen Ivory, Damon, and Marlon. Showcasing his stand-up abilities, Wayans will perform at The Comedy Club (2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster) on Thursday, June 11, through Saturday, June 13. Beginning his career on Fox’s classic sketch-comedy series “In Living Color” (created by Keenen), Wayans would go on to act in and co-write some of the late-90’s and early 2000’s most memorable comedies, including 1996’s “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood,” “Scary Movie” and “Scary Movie 2,” and 2004’s “White Chicks.” Wayans, whose stand-up comedy style borders on Chris Rock-esque while still retaining a unique flair of body humor and occasionally sexually explicit story-telling, will perform three nights of stand-up at The Comedy Club.

ART | OUR DECAY
Bread & Water Theatre will host the first solo exhibit of local photographer CM Goodenbury through the month of June. The exhibit, titled “Our Decay,” depicts images of decay from in and around the Rochester area. Goodenbury is a Western New York-based photographer whose focus is in urban decay, and as he puts it, contrasts both visual and implied. The exhibit not only presents Goodenbury’s photography of abandoned churches and decaying houses in a singular and cohesive collection, but allows the photographer’s pieces to be seen in a significantly larger format than usual. “Our Decay” will be on display at Bread & Water Theatre, 172 West Main Street, throughout June.

If you’re a fan of Melissa McCarthy, watching her career has been a frequently frustrating experience. Yes, she’s found success as an actress — starring in an impressive string of box office hits — but in each of these films, she’s called upon to play characters who are dowdy, bumbling, crass, bullying, or some combination of each; the single word that best defines her roles to date is “abrasive.” But in interviews, the actress comes across as smart, pretty, and charming; qualities she’s rarely, if ever, allowed to display on screen. McCarthy herself

seems unsure exactly what audiences want from her, as evinced by the lackluster results from her turn as writer and producer of last summer’s cringe-inducing comedy “Tammy,” directed by her husband Ben Falcone. Thank God for Paul Feig. Finally there’s someone out there who knows how to utilize McCarthy’s considerable talents. Following three successful collaborations together (after “Bridesmaids” — which earned McCarthy an Oscar nomination — and “The Heat”) Feig’s written the excellent “Spy” expressly for McCarthy, giving her one of her best roles to date, and thankfully keeping the “fat lady fall down” humor to a minimum. McCarthy plays Susan Cooper, a meek, mild-mannered CIA analyst whose job is to provide ground support to super-spy Bradley Fine (Jude Law). Excellent at what she does, she’s also hopelessly in love with the dashing agent, though he remains either oblivious or deliberately keeping her at bay. But when Fine is executed during a mission by a Bulgarian arms dealer named Rayna Boyanov (Rose Byrne), it’s revealed that Boyanov has come into possession

of the names of the CIA’s active field agents. With all the top agents compromised, a new strategy is needed. Having had plans to become an agent herself before Fine convinced her that her talents would best be employed behind a desk, Susan is technically field-certified, and persuades her superior (Allison Janney) to send her to Europe to track (but not engage with) Boyanov. Expecting to be provided the sort of glamorous identities typically given to CIA agents, she’s instead saddled with frumpy divorcees and cat ladies — personas that reveal a little too precisely how she’s seen by those around her (“I look like somebody’s homophobic aunt!” she complains at one point); her weapons are disguised as anti-fungal spray, hemorrhoid ointments, and stool softeners. While these moments earn laughs, Feig and McCarthy don’t hesitate revealing how much Susan is hurt by the way she’s constantly being sold short. She’s also given support in the form of her office friend, Nancy (Miranda Hart). Contrary to expectation, the central joke of the film doesn’t arise from Susan’s ineptness, but from the way she rises to the occasion. She’s inexperienced, but extremely capable, and watching her excel is immensely satisfying. Susan finding her self-confidence after hearing for far too long that she isn’t capable of more, provides the film a nice emotional core around which to build the comedy. In many ways the plot doubles as a bit of commentary on how Hollywood has used McCarthy’s talents over the years. That McCarthy is great isn’t much of a surprise, and

True bromance “Entourage” (R), WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY DOUG ELLIN NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
Feig allows her the opportunity to show her range as she cycles through each new identity. But the real comedic revelation of the film is Jason Statham, playing CIA agent Rick Ford (Jason Statham), who’s so incensed by Susan’s promotion that he goes rogue in protest, popping up at inconvenient moments to interrupt her mission and boasting about his absurdly badass past exploits. I’ve complained before in these pages about the dismal visual state of American comedies, and “Spy” does nothing to change this. This modern era of comedy tends to rely heavily on dialogue for laughs — which isn’t a bad thing, but when there are so many methods that can be utilized to generate laughs, why limit yourself? The concept of “Spy” isn’t too far removed from something like “Hot Fuzz,” playing with the tropes of a specific genre, but Feig isn’t nearly the visual stylist that Edgar Wright is. But to be fair, “Spy” does demonstrate a marked improvement, and the action sequences are competently staged. McCarthy even gets a Jackie Chan-esque scene of hand-to-hand combat that’s just great. Where Feig’s genius lies is in his work with actors. He finds room for each of his performers to get moments to shine. Statham shows off previously untapped comedic skills, while Rose Byrne nearly walks off with the movie. Hair piled high and a constant expression somewhere between boredom and having just smelled something awful, she’s the film’s MVP. By its end, “Spy” seems to be setting itself up sequels, so it appears that McCarthy may be getting her own, tailor-made franchise, and nothing would make me happier.
Raymond Chandler once wrote, “The dilemma of the critic has always been that if he knows enough to speak with authority, he knows too much to speak with detachment.” So please let that serve as my disclaimer for whatever happens next, because I’ve seen every episode of the HBO series “Entourage,” which ran for eight seasons from 2004 to 2011, and I adore it. “Hang on a second,” you might be thinking. “Dayna seems like an evolved female, culturally sophisticated, presumably non-lobotomized, past 40 but looks way younger; why would she be into that crass, Hollywood-insider nonsense about a pack of knuckledragging dude-bros?” First of all, thank you! You’re awfully kind. Second, not everything is meant to be good for you — or even particularly good — as further demonstrated by the predictable yet mostly satisfying “Entourage,” an unnecessary big-screen adaptation which follows the continued

adventures of Vince, Eric, Drama, Turtle, and Ari as they navigate the entertainment industry and screw hot girls. Oh, and maintain their friendships, because that’s at the heart of it all. “Entourage” picks up about two weeks after the series finale, with the boys from Queens — manager Eric aka E (Kevin Connolly), big brother and C-list actor Johnny Drama (dependable buffoon Kevin Dillon), and driver-turned-tequilamogul Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) — converging on Ibiza to meet up with movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) following the dissolution of his nine-day marriage. (“I may have to jerk it before we even get there” is the film’s opening line and definitive proof that we’re back in “Entourage” territory.) Over in Italy, newly retired superagent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven, reprising what will likely go down as his signature role) has agreed to return to Hollywood as the head of a major studio. And for his first project, Ari wants to work with Vince again. But what Vince really wants to do is direct. Jump forward eight months; Vince’s directorial debut, a terrible-looking futuristic action film based on “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” is way over budget, and the need to secure more funding from Billy Bob Thornton as a humorless Texas oil baron is what kicks the gossamer plot into gear. A slumming Haley Joel Osment adopts a Bill Clinton-meets-Foghorn Leghorn accent as the oilman’s spoiled son who travels to Hollywood to protect the investment and maul some starlets. Each of the main characters gets a thread: Turtle tries to woo MMA fighter Ronda Rousey; Drama becomes embroiled in a sex-tape scandal; and E somewhat improbably has too many women on his hands, including ex-girlfriend Sloan (Emmanuelle Chriqui), who is about to give birth to their child. Meanwhile, Ari

continues to work on his seething rage issues, usually — and thankfully, and hilariously — without success. Its depiction of the fairer sex has always been the single biggest problem in the “Entourage” universe, with the majority of the women portrayed as manipulative ballbusters, greedy shrews, or brainless ragdolls, mixing and matching as required for storyline purposes. They rarely have any fun or purpose of their own. Their sole raison d’être is to further and/or thwart the personal and/or professional lives of the men. The movie carries on the series’ grand (read: stupid) tradition of misogyny, almost as though writerdirector (and series creator) Doug Ellin has never met a real, live woman. But why switch things up now? For the most part, however, the qualities that made “Entourage” a dig-able show remain intact. Yeah, Vince & Co. are no longer the bumbling outsiders they were back at the beginning, and their rich-people worries are nearly impossible to relate to at this point. But the entrenched camaraderie between the five of them is as raunchy and cutting as ever — Piven, who won three Emmys for playing Ari, continues to be the draw here. And nonstop cameos from the likes of Liam Neeson, Mark Cuban, Bob Saget, and Mark Wahlberg (the show was loosely based on his own Hollywood experience, minus the criminal activity) provide many of them what must have been irresistible opportunities to act like complete jackasses. So, in a nutshell, if you’ve never seen the series, you never need to see the movie explicitly about the series. (I also gotta wonder why you bothered reading this. Don’t you have anything better to do?) And if you have seen the series, well, you still don’t need to see the movie. But you can if you want to. It’s a free country, and the places that show movies have air conditioning.
In this subtle “sibling drama,” 17-year-old Jackie struggles with her deep incestuous desires for her brother Matthew. Filmmaker Dan Sallitt says, “The story of The Unspeakable Act excited me less for the transgression itself than for the young protagonist’s refusal to share in the world’s judgment of her forbidden desire: she’s an existentialist hero, incapable of internalizing the obstacles she observes.” (Dan Sallitt, US 2012, 91 min., DCP) Part of the series Three Weekends with Dan Sallitt.

Part-western but also part-noir, style is key in Yellow Sky, as Wellman highlights the expansive landscapes with disjointed camera angles, too-close-for-comfort close-ups, and high-contrast black and white photography.” – Il cinema ritrovato (William A. Wellman, US 1948, 98 min., 35mm) Part of the William A. Wellman retrospective.

A Special House in a Special Neighborhood 990 Mount Hope Avenue You have passed the bungalow at 990 Mount Hope Avenue many times as you drove along the prettiest section of this historic thoroughfare. A handful of houses are nestled between Reservoir Ave.—with its Warner Castle and sunken garden—and Highland Avenue just a block from the famous Highland Park arboretum and Lilac Festival. They look out upon the rolling hills of one of the country’s first walkable cemeteries, Mount Hope. The blue cedar-shingled Arts & Crafts style home is sheltered from the street by mature trees and shrubs. It looks small from the road, which is highly deceiving. A full 3,639 square feet inhabit the .42 acre property. A gravel drive accommodates at least four cars, and a cement walk leads to the front of the house. Here, a broad covered porch greets visitors under a columned arch. There is room for chairs, tables and a cup of coffee in the morning air. The house maintains many historic references to 1925: leaded glass doors and windows, glass doorknobs, Rochester-style oak floors, crown molding, pocket doors that work(!), casement windows, nine foot ceilings, ironing board cupboard. Contemporary elements complement the traditional: fresh paint in handsome colors throughout, new chandeliers and sconces, four skylights, stainless steel appliances, first floor laundry, two full baths. The most formal of the ten rooms is the living room immediately to the right of the entrance. A striking fireplace mantle and surround are flanked by leaded glass bookshelves
beneath casement windows. A bank of tall windows under a decorative arch looks out on the garden. The massive living room can accommodate several seating areas, a library table or art display. The many other rooms in the first floor can serve as dining room, family room, office, master suite, walk-in closet, pantry – the new owner will have a vast palate of spaces with which to craft a lovely lifestyle. The second floor is much more open than the bungalow roofline would suggest. There are several attic-type storage areas under the eaves, but the bedrooms are large and boast eight foot ceilings. There is ample storage and a new bathroom with skylight. A second entrance from the driveway is through a good looking mud room (not a non sequitor in this case) that leads to the huge basement in one direction and the kitchen in the other. The eat-in kitchen is spacious and bright. The basement is clean and dry, and originally included an underground garage space that was accessed from a sloping driveway. Alas, the garage is no more. This very special house in a very special neighborhood is listed for $225,000 through Pete Zizzi, Re/Max Plus, 585 279-8155. by Elizabeth Teall Elizabeth is a Landmark Society volunteer.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD
Silicon Valley code-writers and engineers work long hours — with apparently little time for “food” as we know it. Eating is “time wasted,” in the words of celebrity inventor Elon Musk, and normal meals a “marketing facade,” said another valley bigwig. The New York Times reported in May that techies are eagerly scarfing down generic (but nutrientladen) liquids like Schmilk and People Chow, largely for ease of preparation, to speed their return to work. The Times food editor described one product as “oat flour” washed down with “the worst glass of milk ever.” “Pancake batter,” according to a Times reporter. (That supermarket staple Ensure? According to the food editor, it’s “fine wine” compared to Schmilk.)
Air travelers last year left $675,000 in (obviously) spare change in airport screening bins, reported the Transportation Security Administration in April. Of the cars reported stolen in 2014, 44,828 were with keys left inside them, according to an April National Insurance Crime Bureau release. American credit card holders fail to claim “about $4 billion” in earned “rewards” each year, according to CardHub.com’s 2015 Credit Card Rewards Report.

(1) Nursing student Jennifer Burbella filed a lawsuit against Misericordia University (near Scranton, Pennsylvania) for not helping her enough to pass a required course that she failed twice. The professional caregiver-to-be
complained of stress so severe that she needed a distraction-free room and extra time for the exam, but claims she deserved even more special treatment. (2) Four Columbia University students complained in May that courses in Greek mythology and Roman poetry need “trigger” warnings — advance notice to super-sensitive students that history may include narratives of “disturbing” events (that have somehow been studied without such warnings for centuries). -- In March, following the departure of Zayn Malik from the British band One Direction, an executive with the Peninsula employment law firm in Manchester told London’s Daily Telegraph that he had received “hundreds” of calls from employers seeking advice about workers who were requesting “compassionate” leave because Malik’s resignation had left them distraught. (Also, a spokeswoman for the charity Young Minds told the Telegraph she was concerned about Malik fans self-harming.)
Among recent inventions not expected to draw venture capital interest (reported by Popular Science in June): (1) A Canadian software engineer’s machine that unspools toilet paper exactly three squares at a time (but please keep fingers away from the cleaver!). (2) A Japanese shoulder-mounted tomatofeeder that provides nourishment to marathoners without their needing to catch tomatoes provided by supporters. (3) Google software engineer Maurice Bos’ whiteboard-mounted clock that writes down the exact time, with a marker, at five-minute intervals (after erasing the previous time).
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 27 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Give love and romance your undivided attention. Socialize, meet new people and explore interests, and you will come across several potential partners hankering to spend more time with you. Your engaging, entertaining and unpredictable nature will add to your charm. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t go on the prowl or chase when it comes to love. As long as you get out and mingle, you will attract followers. A classy, low-key persona will appeal to the type of partner who can fulfill your dreams, hopes and wishes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t let past loves stop you from finding someone new. Learn from your experiences, and don’t make the mistake of moving too quickly before you actually get to know the person who catches your interest. It’s best to be friends before you become lovers. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Being overly sensitive may attract attention, but it probably won’t help you catch and keep that special person. Standing on your own two feet and showing that you can be totally self-sufficient without a significant other will entice a perfect partner who is ready to commit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Everyone will want to be by your side. The more people around you, the more you’ll stand out in the crowd. You will find it easy to attract a suitable partner, but it’s not easy to make up your mind. Don’t make promises you don’t want to keep. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’ll be disappointed in the people you meet. Motives will be questionable, and personal information you are offered will be dubious. Don’t feel rushed -- time is on your side. Be a silent observer until someone you meet proves to be exactly what he or she portrays.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll have what everyone wants. The overall package you offer in terms of intelligence, looks and talent will make you very appealing. Travel or events that spark your interest will lead to romance. Set out on a mission to have fun, and someone special will vie to be by your side. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful when it comes to the game of love. You’ll be easily beat by someone offering unrealistic promises. Don’t get wrapped up in the moment, or you will end up feeling used and abused. Make whoever wants to play with you work hard to share your space.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll have plenty of opportunity and a week rich with possibilities. Spread your wings and enjoy interacting with people who are just as exciting and adventuresome as you. Sign up for an event or activity that entices you, and you will meet someone who wants to share the thrill with you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t settle for what’s being offered. Play the waiting game when it comes to love, and hold out for the partner who can offer you what you want. A balanced and equal relationship is necessary if you want it to be lasting.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put your best foot forward and do the things you love to do. You’ll attract someone who shares your humor, intellect and desire to live life in an unusual or unique manner. Love at first sight will send you into a serious commitment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): An unrealistic approach to love will lead to disappointment. Find if someone is available before you waste your time on him or her. Letting someone manipulate you will end up costing you emotionally and financially. Know when to say no and back away.
