Disc jockeys: Ultimate Frisbee in Rochester Ultimate Frisbee — typically just called “Ultimate” — is a fast-paced, football-like sport that substitutes flying discs for that pigskin missile. There is no shortage of Ultimate players in the Rochester area. The Greater Rochester Area Disc Association estimates that there are as many as 4,000 regular players of the sport locally. From casual, less-organized match-ups among friends (and strangers) on nice days in Ellison and other area parks, to organized league play on weekends throughout the spring and summer, to Rochester’s first
professional team, the local Ultimate scene is thriving. The game has evolved from its low-key beginnings on college campuses. It’s still got the same laid-back vibe, but it’s no longer just for frat boys or hippies looking for a break from football practice and hacky-sack. “Anyone can play,” says Tanya Beiswenger of Greater Rochester Area Disc Association’s Spring Fling league. “Literally, anyone.” (Pictured: Eric "Ginger" Dixon of the Rochester Dragons professional Ultimate team.)

Pro-choice push doomed good bill
It is with more sadness than joy that I congratulate the New York State Senate for defeating the Women’s Equality Act, the very name of which explains my unhappiness. The bill contained nine extremely important and long-overdue corrections to New York State law that would have brought many critical improvements to women’s equality in our state. Due to the machinations of politicians who receive major campaign funding and other support from prochoice organizations and individuals both in-state and out, the Women’s Equality Act was saddled with a self-destructive component expanding abortion access well beyond what voters can accept. Understanding the abortion polls quite well, these politicians cobbled an expansion of abortion access into an otherwise fine bill that most New Yorkers would support. Even the state Conservative Party supported the non-abortion components of the bill. Unfortunately, rather than pass into law the WEA’s necessary elements, pro-choice lawmakers in Albany killed the whole bill by refusing to remove its only divisive element. By failing to deliver acceptable legislation for women, the governor and legislative leaders have made it clear that they are willing to support disenfranchising women in order to appease their special-interest donors. It is my hope that a new 2 CITY

Sexual assaults and the military
Your editorial, like so many on the topic, is devoid of any context – which quite frankly, given your gender, is not a surprise (“Good. Old. Boys,” Urban Journal). After reading it, one would think that the military was populated by roving brigands of rapists terrorizing women at all turns. I am quite sure that there is some forcible rape in which a credible threat of either physical or social coercion is a key ingredient. Other cases, such as the recent one at the Naval Academy, involve alcohol. In that recent case, a young woman attended a party, drank herself unconscious and was allegedly raped by three young men. I will grant you that drinking yourself unconscious is neither an explicit or implicit consent to sexual activity but what was the young lady thinking? As a man with four daughters, I have always stressed to them that you have to be responsible for yourself. This is a multifaceted problem that is not going to be solved by punishing the actions of young men and excusing the behavior of young women. None of their behaviors is what one would expect of a future officer. Once again, forcible rape is another matter and needs to be dealt with forthwith. AL GREGORIO

Rights and the Supremes Last week was a historic, and deeply troubling, week, with the Supreme Court issuing some of the most important rulings it has made in recent years. On the court’s final day, there was a lot to celebrate, with the fall of the Defense of Marriage Act and a decision that, in effect, legalizes samesex marriage in California. But while in those rulings the court affirmed a basic right, in a decision earlier in the week it slapped other Americans in the face. And in another, it seemed to merely postpone the day when many Americans will have to fight for an important right. The rulings on marriage equality give federal benefits to same-sex married couples in states where those marriages are permitted, and they let California join (again) the list of those states. But for samesex couples in most states, the rulings do nothing. Those Americans are still secondclass citizens. That said, it is no small thing – in both practical and symbolic terms – that DOMA has died. Same-sex couples deserve the benefits that other married couples have. And it was unconscionable for this country to have a federal law designed to hurt and discriminate against a specific group of citizens. (Conservatives in Congress aren’t giving up, though; they’re talking about a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage throughout the country.) Dampening the celebration over the marriage-equality rulings: In Fisher v. the University of Texas, the court sent back to a lower court the issue of whether UT can consider applicants’ race when it decides which students it will admit. UT had argued that a diverse student body serves an educational purpose. The court agreed that it does but said the university should be required to prove that it can’t achieve diversity any way other than by considering the race of its applicants. As Mychal Denzel Smith wrote in The Nation: “While the goal of diversity has been the easiest way to sell affirmative action to the public, that isn’t the purpose. The original intent behind affirmative action was to afford the descendants of America’s slave population and those who had suffered under Jim Crow – black people – the educational and employment opportunities denied to them by racist laws.” That need still exists, and while affirmative action is only one of the ways to address it, it’s an important one. More troubling still is the court’s decision – and its reasoning – on the Voting Rights Act. In ruling that select cities and states no longer have to get permission from the Justice Department to change their voting laws, the justices turned a blind eye to the growing attack on voters’ rights.
The Supremes’ DOMA ruling is worth celebrating. But in terms of equality for all Americans, the court pulls us backward. According to a report issued last month by the Brennan Center for Justice, 82 different bills to restrict voting were introduced this year in 31 states; seven states had passed restrictive bills, and 50 more bills were pending when the report was written. Supervision under the Voting Rights Act needs to be expanded, not eliminated. The Supreme Court has made that all but impossible, though, at least for the foreseeable future. John Nichols of The Nation notes the need for a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to vote. But constitutional amendments are neither easy nor fast, and a lot of damage can be done while we wait for that change. On Sunday, the New York Times called on Congress to pass a law “declaring a universal right to vote that could not be infringed by any level of government.” That’s a long shot, too, given Republicans’ addiction to states’ rights. We’ll celebrate the steps toward marriage equality during the Gay Pride events in Rochester this month. But we need to keep in mind that while those are important steps, they are very, very small. And the big story this past week was the stark reminder that in terms of real equality for all Americans, we still have a long way to go. And that for the moment, the Supreme Court wants to pull us backward, not forward.

Former Albany County Nursing Home administrator Gene Larrabee will be the new executive health director at Monroe Community Hospital. And Colleen Rose has been hired as the hospital’s deputy director. Rose comes to MCH from the Fairport Baptist Home, where she worked as director of strategic initiatives. The appointments must be approved by the Monroe County Legislature.
State touts Eastman Business Park
New York’s economic development agency awarded $7.2 million in incentives to assist Recycled Energy Development’s purchase of Eastman Business Park’s utilities system. And last week, state and local officials visited the park to talk about an agreement between the state and Kodak. The company and other park tenants will be absolved of environmental liabilities, and Kodak will place $49 million into an environmental trust fund for monitoring and cleanup work.
Land bank funding
Over the next two years, New York’s land banks will
have access to up to $20 million in funding from the attorney general’s office. The state has eight land banks, including Rochester’s. The funding is meant to help revitalize neighborhoods hit hard by the housing crisis.
Dems propose registry
Democrats in the Monroe County Legislature say they’ll introduce legislation to establish a registry of people convicted of animal abuse. The registry would be maintained by the Humane Society of Greater Rochester. There would be exceptions, but generally any person or business selling more than nine animals a year would have to check the registry before making a sale.

Chess kids You might wonder how, in the ever-expanding empire of video games, an ancient board game can still attract players. But a group of ninth graders at Wilson Commencement Academy in the Rochester school district say there’s nothing like the cerebral matches in chess. The six-student Rochester team recently came in sixth in the U.S. Chess Federation 2013 SuperNationals. The tournament, which drew more than 5,300 students from all over the country, is the ultimate in scholastic chess competition.
Audit critical of repair program
A City of Rochester audit of its Emergency Assistance Repair Program revealed some flaws with the program, which is intended to help low-income property owners with basic repairs. Though there were no laws broken or jobs left incomplete, most of the problems cited involved poor supervision. The city funneled about $2 million into the program in 2009 in an effort to improve neighborhoods.

Most members of the Rochester team, which consists of Peter Carter, Theodore Chapman, Sam Cherin, Webster Kehoe, Connor Wagner, and Patrick Phillips, began playing together when they were kindergarten students at Genesee Community Charter School. A couple of the boys had learned the rules before entering school. While at GCCS, the students had a morning period where they could chose an activity, and the team grew from there. “You have to know how to strategize,” says Peter Carter. “Every move has to be thought out and you have to think of every countermove from your opponent.”
Numerous studies have shown that chess encourages cognitive development by sharpening memory and reasoning. Rochester has a thriving chess community, says Michael Kehoe, Webster’s father. Not only have their teachers and parents supported the students, he says, but there are coaches and master-level champion players in the Rochester area. Enthusiasts of the 5,000 year old game will find local tournaments under way on most Saturdays, Mondays, and Wednesdays, Kehoe says. Many of them are held at the Rochester Chess Center, 221 Norris Drive.

Imminent domain Faith Temple Church in Brighton. PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN
A once fought-over piece of land next to Buckland Park in Brighton may end up in the town’s hands, after all. Brighton officials tried unsuccessfully to buy the land between Westfall and South Winton roads several years ago to add to the then-nascent park. The property was instead purchased by Faith Temple Church with plans to build a new sanctuary, school building, senior housing, and ball fields. Brighton initiated eminent domain proceedings on the property and the whole thing went to court. The two sides settled, with the church selling part of the land to the town and planning to move ahead with its project. But Faith Temple recently put the 70 acres it still owns up for sale. The single parcel includes the remainder of the once-disputed property, combined with other land held by the church. The process of developing the land was taking too long, says Kim Edlin, a pastor at Faith Temple, so church leaders decided to look for an existing building to renovate, instead. But before
that can happen, Edlin says, the church needs to sell the Westfall Road property. “We’re a church,” she says. “We don’t have endless resources.” Several parties have expressed interest in the land, Edlin says, but no offers have yet been received. The sale creates an opening for Brighton to pursue the property. And the town’s Sustainability Oversight Committee says officials should look into purchasing and preserving the land. “Incorporating this parcel into Buckland Park would be an outstanding opportunity to preserve a green habitat for wildlife and create a passive recreation area for town residents,” the committee said in a letter to Brighton Supervisor Bill Moehle. The site is one of the few undeveloped properties left in Brighton. Moehle says that real estate discussions are sensitive and that he can’t say whether the town may try to buy the property. “It’s a very important parcel of land,” he says.
Surveys frustrate teachers Students, teachers, principals, and parents in the Rochester school district recently participated in comprehensive districtwide surveys. The questions were tailored to each group’s relationship to the district. For example, students were asked about their teachers’ instruction, responsiveness, and classroom demeanor. | The New York State Education Department required the surveys as part of the teacher evaluation legislation enacted last year for priority school districts — those where the majority of schools are failing. | Teachers found the surveys frustrating, says Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Association. | “They ate up so much valuable time,” he says. And some teachers found some of the questions intrusive, he says, and not always age-appropriate. | But Anita Murphy, deputy superintendent of the RCSD, says the surveys were designed to gauge perceptions of students and parents for planning purposes. And the cumulative results will be used to help identify problems and guide in the development of solutions, Murphy says. | “We worked very specifically to not make it punitive,” she says. “We want to use the data to make the schools better.”

INTERVIEW | BY MATTHEW SCHNIPER
Contami-Nation: Josh Fox returns to fracking fracas Of all things flammable in the wide world, tap water shouldn’t be one of them. At least that’s the consensus — call it crazy — among environmentalists and fracking foes, for whom the phenomena, supposedly brought on by nearby hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas extraction, has grown into quite a powerful symbol. Fitting, as fire has conveyed the angry heart and distempered emotion of many movements in modern history, from bra-burning and flag-burning to self-immolation. It’s clear from speaking with Josh Fox, the amped-up face-man for the anti-fracking movement, that he views Americans’ battle against big industry, not to mention their own elected leaders, as nothing short of a fight to the (slow) death. Our health versus their wealth. Fox, 40, earned some celebrity with the 2010 film Gasland, which was nominated for a Best Documentary Oscar, as well as for four Emmy Awards (winning one for its directing). Opposition upped Fox’s profile soon after: An independent film team used Kickstarter to produce the pro-fracking FrackNation. And special interests that support fossil fuel development, groups like the Independent Petroleum Association of America, backed the documentary TruthLand in an effort to discredit Fox’s “fearumentary.” It’s a strange David-and-Goliath conflict, pitting billionaires and multinational corporations versus the relatively lowly founder and artistic director of New York-based International WOW Company, a theater and film collaborative dedicated to illuminating “global social and political crises.” But frack with a Columbia University grad who’s written, directed and/or produced more than 30 stage works and who cut his cinematic teeth with 2008’s Memorial Day, an exposé of Abu Ghraib atrocities, and growing national resistance is what you get. Fox gave an interview to the Colorado Springs Independent in advance of the July 8 release of Gasland Part II on HBO. The following is an edited version of that conversation. SCHNIPER: What did you most want to do with Gasland II?
Fox: Well, I was compelled to make the follow-up film because, frankly, we saw just an enormous movement happening. Now, I’m not crediting the film with that. The movement has happened because there is this largest domestic drilling campaign in history happening, and people are angry and upset and protesting that. But what we found was there was another layer of contamination due to fracking 6 CITY
JULY 3-9, 2013
we wanted to investigate. And that’s the contamination of democracy. It is incredible to see the Democratic establishment — [Colorado] Governor Hickenlooper, President Obama, [former Pennsylvania Governor Ed] Rendell, everyone except [New York Governor Andrew] Cuomo right now, frankly — literally in the gas tank. And to be betraying the health concerns of their own constituents in favor of toeing an oil and gas development line, when every indicator says we have to move away from this and move toward renewable energy… There’s vigorous development of renewable energy. It is totally viable for us to replace this fuel and to replace all fossil fuels with renewable energy. We need strong leadership who’s not on the take from oil and gas to represent the people. So what we wanted to do is say, “Oh my God, look at what happened in the media. Look at what happened in the streets. It’s unprecedented, amazing what’s happened in the face of the fracking threat. Why hasn’t the government responded?” Since the film premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in April, what’s the response and blowback been?
More of the same. I mean, the industry got caught hiring psyops officers. People who’d just come from Iraq and Afghanistan who were trained in psyops, psychological operations, and they were employing those techniques against landowners fighting the industry in Pennsylvania. They got caught doing that. They were tape-recorded at their own teleconference describing landowners fighting for their basic human rights in Pennsylvania as “insurgents.” This industry has pursued a line of disinformation, of deceit. Now, it’s not surprising. Understand that my first glimpse of the oil and gas industry was them coming to me [as a member of a family that owned property in Pennsylvania] and saying, “Oh, it’s not going to be such a big deal, we’ll hardly even drill, just sign at the bottom line, it’s free money.”

When their first note is deception, how do you expect the next note to be something truthful? What they’re doing here is doubling down on denial and it’s following the strategy of Big Tobacco. Big Tobacco had a problem they couldn’t solve. There was no way to make a healthy cigarette. The gas industry has been studying well leakage, water contamination, all of these problems for decades. And they’ve come to the conclusion in their own scientific reporting, and we show this in Gasland II, that there is no way to make a leak-proof well. And in fact, their leakage rates are alarming and astounding. Five percent of all wells leak immediately upon installation, and their cement casings fail. And 50 percent of them leak over a 30year period. It’s the industry’s own science. So in the same way that the tobacco industry had these memos in their drawers that said, “Oh, we knew all along that nicotine’s addictive and that tobacco’s harmful,” the gas industry has their own research. And some of that stuff has been published, even. It’s not even hidden. Some of it is hidden and we uncover a lot of that material in the new film. What do you say to people who insist that there is no credible evidence of the dangers of fracking? What’s your best, most irrefutable data, your strongest argument, your best proof on your side?
This is not even a question of proof. You look out there — and I’ve been to 25 states and all over the world investigating this issue — the contamination is clear from all the reporting. The New York Times, Pulitzer Prize-winning ProPublica, there are thousands of pages written on the contamination. Anyone who’s
saying it doesn’t exist is living on a slightly different planet. But the best evidence of why these things are happening comes from the gas industry itself, their own reports, which are featured in Gasland II. We know it is happening, and the first film is evidence of that. All the reporting is evidence of that. And a lot of this has to do with PR. Who can win the PR war. All I’m trying to say is, “Look at this reporting. Look at what’s actually being wrought on these people.” And it’s not a small number of people. Finding contamination cases making the first Gasland was not difficult at all. The EPA released its first progress report in December 2012 on its two-year study of potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water, with a final draft promised by 2014. What do you think of that report so far?
I haven’t seen the progress report. The EPA would be in conflict with their own findings on several occasions if they were to come out and give fracking a clean bill of health. One of the first interviews I did was with Weston Wilson — we know him as Weston Wilson the Whistleblower — in Region 8 offices at EPA. He blew the whistle on a 2004 report by EPA which said, “Yes, we’re injecting toxic material into the ground but it is no risk.” He said it was an Orwellian world. Unfortunately, what we’ve seen and you’ll see demonstrated in Gasland II, is that EPA is subject to the same political pressures as any of our state agencies are. And that the industry has an incredible grip on our regulatory agencies. In Pennsylvania, [in] the public accountability initiative report called

Once they start exporting natural gas, we’re going to be subject to the same international pricing pressures we are with oil. And those multinationals who are not Americans, they’re multinationals with investors from China and all over the world, those are the guys who are now going to be controlling how much you have to pay for your energy.

“Fracking and the Revolving Door in Pennsylvania,” they examine all the people who are supposed to be regulating on behalf of the citizens, and they said it’s had a corrupting effect and that the industry has captured the regulatory agencies that are supposed to represent the citizens. It does not mince words. And we’re seeing the same situation over and over again. What do you think about the way President Obama has handled the fracking issue?
The Obama administration has clearly embraced natural gas. There were natural gas talking points in the State of the Union address. I don’t think they did that with good science, with an eye toward the brilliant reporting that’s happened. I don’t think they did that with the idea of good government in mind. And one of the things that we’d like to do is reach out to President Obama and say, “Your base is not with you on your position on natural gas. You need to do what we elected you to do.” I was campaigning door to door in the Pennsylvania primary in Wayne County, PA, knocking on doors for President Obama in April 2008. And many of my colleagues obviously preferred him to the opposition in the last election. But he needs to go ahead and represent the people who elected him. This issue is not going away. When we talk about frack Colorado, frack Pennsylvania, frack California, frack New York, what we’re talking about is tying ourselves into another 30 to 50 years of dependency on the same old oil companies that are doing the fracking. This is Royal Dutch Shell, this is Exxon. These are the guys who have been playing with our purse strings.
I was reading one review and this person said, “Although the film is about fracking, its deeper subject is America in the early 21st century. What used to happen in the far away Third World or indigenous regions is now going on in the US. Call it karma ... seducing the populace with promises of ‘energy independence,’ a government that once vaunted democracy as its prime export, now disenfranchises citizens.” Can you elaborate?
OK, the fossil fuel industry has always considered a certain element of the population expendable. Those expendable people have been in Nigeria, in West Virginia, on the Western Slope of Colorado. Those are the people who are allowed by them and by a lot of governments to be poisoned and destroyed. When you look at the map of shale plates all over America, the area of people being considered expendable by the fossil fuel industry has expanded to a lot of new places. You’re seeing those people who are not used to being treated that way. You could call it exploitation models deployed in the developing world, you could call it an exploitation model deployed in West Virginia, but that’s their M.O. That’s the way they treat people. Like, “How did our gas get under their mountains?” And let’s move them aside. And what you’re seeing is an equal and opposite reaction, like a Newtonian political equation. It’s a stand-and-be-counted moment. For the president, for all the other elected officials who are involved in this debate, I urge them, please — we are here to work with you. We want you to work with the people, and not with the fossil-fuel industries that had their way with so many at such great expense. These are human rights issues. These are issues of democracy, and that’s what the new film speaks to. Matthew Schniper is an arts editor at the Colorado Springs Independent. He also frequently writes about film and sustainability topics.

Go slow [ CHOW HOUND ] BY DAYNA PAPALEO
Syracuse native Caleb Piron had been practicing law in Manhattan for a little while before he made the choice to move his legal career to the back burner. “It was just an itch I had to scratch,” the self-described “food nerd” says of his decision to trade pocket squares for side towels and dive into the food-service industry. “Ooh, how’d that conversation go?” I totally had to pry, secretly hoping for tales of a shrieking holiday bloodbath upon Piron breaking the news to his family. He gave this question careful consideration: “I think they’re probably still a little confused.” Piron initially thought food truck, but the NYC costs were prohibitive. So he joined his brothers in Rochester, found a space in an eclectic neighborhood, and got to work. Fast-forward to Rosie’s Hot Buns, Piron’s new Monroe Avenue eatery that serves what he calls “slow food fast.” The concept is deceptively simple: three different breads filled with a choice of proteins, sauces, and toppings. Everything is made in-house, from the yeast-risen doughs to the pickled vegetables to the pistachio butter that anchors Rosie’s outrageously lush signature cookie. The beef, pork, and chicken are prepared sous vide, a method that tenderizes the meats over a long, leisurely cooking time while preserving all the taste.
The bread used in the Hot Bun has an airy focaccia feel but the flavor profile is Asian, the vegetarian option a fried tofu that’s crisp on the outside, creamy on the inside, and dressed with a savory ginger-sesame sauce. The Corn Pocket gives off a Latin-American vibe thanks to the black beans and salsa verde, while the Spice Roll is a baked-then-griddled flatbread filled with Indian flavors, the yummy cheese-andpeas version nearly making me forget that I’m a hardcore carnivore. Each will run you $4. The last several weeks have been a crash course in Restaurants 101 for Piron as he and manager Christian Stark worked out the kinks and tried to get Rosie’s Hot Buns as streamlined as possible. (Rosie, incidentally, is Piron’s bulldog; she does not work any shifts.) Plans for delivery, cold-brew coffee, wine and beer service, and housemade ice-cream sandwiches are afoot, as are set daily specials like fish tacos, Piron’s take on fried chicken, and a “very cheesy” dish irresistibly named Mac & Sleaze. Rosie’s Hot Buns is located at 642 Monroe Ave. It is open Monday-Wednesday 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Thursday-Saturday 11 a.m.-midnight. Prices range from $2 to $10.

DISC JOCKEYS ULTIMATE FRISBEE IN ROCHESTER [ FEATURE ] BY KATHY LALUK
“UUUUUUP!!!” Players’ voices echo in a cacophony of varying pitches and intensities. My eyes dart away from my mark and go immediately to the sky. A small white disc cuts through the clear blue sky toward the end zone — a good 25 feet ahead of me and my mark. She sprints toward the end zone, I chase after her. Why the hell did I pick the fastest player to mark? Running at full speed, we simultaneously leap for the disc, our outstretched fingers mere centimeters apart. WHOOSH! The other player snatches the disc out of the air, scoring a point. I’m left standing red in the face, out of breath, and slightly embarrassed that I missed it. “Good bid!” I hear players from both teams shout to me from the sideline, as I stand totally in awe not only of how good the other players are at my first Ultimate Frisbee game, but also at the sportsmanship in this competitive, football-like game. There is no shortage of Ultimate players in the Rochester area. From casual, lessorganized match-ups among friends (and strangers) on nice days in Ellison and other area parks, to organized league play on weekends throughout the spring and summer, to Rochester’s first professional team, the local Ultimate scene is thriving — and growing. The game has evolved from its low-key beginnings on college campuses. It’s still got the same laid-back vibe, but it’s no longer just for frat boys or hippies looking for a break from football practice and 10 CITY JULY 3-9, 2013

hacky-sack. During my first game, I stood shoulder-to-shoulder with men and women twice my age, as well as a young man barely out of high school. “Anyone can play,” says Tanya Beiswenger, captain for the team called Dirt in the Greater Rochester Area Disc Association’s Spring Fling league. “Literally, anyone.”
Ultimate Frisbee (or simply “Ultimate,” since the term Frisbee is trademarked) has been around for years, but has seen a surge in popularity over the last few decades. Many credit a group of high-school students with inventing the sport at Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey, in the late 1960’s. The sport quickly gained popularity on college campuses; the first-ever official Ultimate game on a college campus was between Rutgers and Princeton in 1972. The first College Nationals, made up exclusively of collegiate teams, took place in 1984, with Stanford taking the title. As the sport picked up momentum, the first players’ associations formed in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, giving more structure
to the then-loosely organized activity. While the laid-back pick-up tradition is still very much ingrained in the fabric of the sport itself, things have grown more competitive, as more traditional athletes get their hands on a disc and catch “Ultimate fever,” as some players call it. In 1979, the Ultimate Players Association (now USA Ultimate) was formed, and since then has been a driving force in growing the sport and organizing tournaments across the country. The Fitness Industry Association lists Ultimate as among the fastest-growing team sports in the country. In 2008 (the most recent year for data), there were an estimated 4.9 million ultimate players in the United States. Sean Donnellan, a player for the Rochester Dragons Ultimate team and board member for the Greater Rochester Area Disc Association, says that there are as many as 4,000 regular Ultimate players In the Greater Rochester area. “It’s hard to put an exact number on it, since many people play pickup games,” Donnellan says. A pick-up game is more casual than league or professional play. “We’re very accepting,” says Sarah Burns, an Ultimate player and wife
of Dragons captain T.J. Burns. “Just show up and bring your dark shirt and your light shirt and someone will bring a Frisbee and you’re all set to get hooked.”
To say that Ultimate is fast-paced is an understatement. Just watching a game can be dizzying to the inexperienced viewer, but in a good way. Ultimate combines the non-stop movement and athletic endurance required by soccer with the passing and strategic skills of basketball. Just substitute a swirling piece of airborne plastic for the traditional ball. Although only seven team members are on the field at a time, teams typically have at least 12 to 15 players on the roster because of the constant running. “You need to be able to sub in and let people rest pretty frequently,” says local player Dooley Maring. Play starts with the pull, where one team throws the disc from one end of the field to the other. The other team, waiting on the opposite side of the field, can either catch the disc or let it drop, then pick it up and play it. Once in possession of the disc, a player isn’t locked in — he or she can pivot on one foot. This is especially helpful when trying to find an open teammate to whom you can pass. Sometimes they’re ahead of you, but sometimes, you need to pass backwards to a teammate just to keep the play moving. (As in basketball, players are not allowed to travel with the disc. They are only allowed a

few steps to stop themselves once they catch the disc.) If a pass is incomplete, intercepted, or caught out of bounds, the opposing team immediately gains possession and tries to move the disc in the other direction. Once a player has the disc, it becomes a hot potato. He or she has 10 seconds to get rid of it, or it’s considered a “stall.” Defensive players (often called the “markers”) are allowed and encouraged to count aloud. If the player doesn’t throw the disc by the “T” of 10, possession switches teams. Because of this, play move quickly. Your team can be on offense one second and back on defense the next, then back to offense just a few seconds later. “If we drop it, there’s no debating it: it’s a turnover, so all of a sudden we’re on defense,” says Dooley Maring. “Then if they make a play and it gets knocked down or whatever, it’s our disc and we’re back on offense.” If a team successfully gets the disc into the end zone, it gets a point and the teams switch sides. The team that scored then gets the next pull. Play continues until a predetermined condition is reached (a certain score or a time limit). This varies depending on the league and level of skill/competitiveness. Although Ultimate resembles many traditional sports in terms of play, team make-up, and objective, it differs greatly with what’s called “spirit of the game.” There are no referees, no umpires, no officials calling penalties, etc. (except in professional cases; more on that in a bit). It’s up to the players
themselves to act sportsmanlike and respect the rules. Sometimes that leads to players calling fouls on themselves. Other times, it can lead to disagreements. With no one in black and white to make the final call, the teams are obligated to talk it out civilly until they can reach an agreement or compromise. “It’s what makes Ultimate different from any other game,” says Lynne Boucher, a local Ultimate player and coach. “It makes it a really different playing environment than just about any other sport out there.” That spirit is fiercely upheld by GRADA. The organization, founded in 1999, prides itself on recruiting and encouraging new players and expanding the sport in the Rochester area. It boasts about 1,000 regular members who play in recreational, intermediate, advanced, and women’s leagues, as well as puts on regular tournaments throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Ultimate is pretty much a year-round sport. Even though Rochester winters aren’t exactly conducive to playing sports outdoors, some teams adapt and play in indoor leagues to feed their Ultimate habit. Members of GRADA even organize an outdoor tournament in the wintertime to feed their habit. It’s called WART, short for “What Are we Thinking?” Despite its growing popularity, Ultimate isn’t a sport that’s on everyone’s radar. “You see all these amazing plays on ESPN from other sports, and as Ultimate players, we look at it and go, ‘That happens in Ultimate every
week,’” Beiswenger says. “But people who have experienced Ultimate can’t wait to pass it on to someone else.” Beiswenger, like many other Ultimate players, got her start through an impromptu invite to play in college. “I played other sports in college, and one of my friends invited me to play in a pick-up game once and it was love at first play,” Beiswenger says. “I’ve been playing ever since.” Boucher, who says she’s been playing Ultimate since about six knee surgeries ago, has been coaching Ultimate teams for the last five years. The Brighton High School team (there are about 20 local high-school ultimate teams) that she coaches won the local championships and placed third at the state level. She also coaches at Nazareth College, where she helped inspire some budding professional players get hooked on the sport, including current Dragons player and GRADA President Joe Becker. Becker started playing pick-up games at Nazareth while in grad school. “I just got hooked,” he says. “Now, all of my friends are Ultimate players. I spend four or five days a week committed to something Ultimaterelated,” Becker says. “We were talking the other day and were like, ‘What if we never played Ultimate, what would our lives be like?’ We’d have a completely different circle of friends, a completely different lifestyle because it’s easy to find all sorts of people willing to play.”
Going to the pros
With more and more people are getting hooked on the sport, a second national league was formed in 2012, the American Ultimate Disc League. In its inaugural season, there were just eight teams, including the Buffalo Hunters — which is now the Rochester Dragons. Just a year after it became the first Ultimate team to play in the AUDL in Upstate New York, the team moved to Rochester and renamed itself. Several of the original Buffalo Hunters team now play as Rochester Dragons. Becker says he considered trying out when the team was based in Buffalo, but he didn’t want to drive an hour and a half away to play a home game. “When I heard the team was coming to Rochester, I was pumped and was like, ‘I have to try out,’” Becker says. Twenty-three players were eventually picked, and the Dragons are just wrapping up a successful first season. Home games are played at Webster Schroeder High School to more than 100 spectators per game. Numbers aside, the fans’ enthusiasm is infectious. By the second quarter, I was shouting “Up!” and cheering along with everyone in the stands. The team plays under AUDL rules, which have been adapted slightly from the original rules of the game to ensure competitive and professional play. The most significant continues on page 28

a Kid Rock show that inspired me to play a bit of hooky. What aroused my wayward spirit was crushing tunes and the ridiculousness of Kid Rock and Twisted Brown Trucker, a half-band, half-circus spectacle from Detroit. Kid Rock is blessed with a knack for self-promotion and a penchant for gimmicks, despite ditching those poledancers from back in the day. You betcha that there is still a place for a large American flag or a giant middle finger to be unfurled sometime during a number. But Kid Rock has mostly morphed into grown-up rock.

The Ghost Peppers
Wrapping up the Jazz Fest Friday night I saw a re-tooled and reinvigorated Shemekia Copeland on the Chestnut Street Stage at the Jazz Festival. The weight this beautiful lady has lost has simply been shifted over to the sound of her band. Man, these cats played heavy — twin slide guitars and a bottom end heavier than a Puerto Rican Toyota low-rider. Copeland’s music leans a little on the funky side, and she strikes me as a soul-shouter at heart. But mixed together it’s a hell of a bluesy kick in the gut. She was magnificent.

It’s so hot that scientists in India have actually considered weaponizing the hybrid chili. Seriously. So, if you’re going to name your band after this particular condiment, you better bring some spice to the table. The Ghost Peppers do just that.

have to be “otherworldly,” because they made sounds I hadn’t heard before in this one. Nah came out alone to begin the duo’s first set Friday at the Lutheran Church. With only a thumb piano, she proceeded to sing “My Favorite Things.” If John Coltrane reduced the song’s verse down to two chords in his famous modal rendition, Nah reduced it further, down to one chord — and somehow made it work. She could do this because she had one of the most remarkable voices I’ve ever heard.
DOES SEX HURT?
She was capable of everything from operatic high notes to Björk-like punk histrionics. When she sang she used her hands and arms in an evocative upper-body ballet that accented everything she sang. And her uniqueness went beyond her voice. At one point she soloed on kazoo, but somehow converted it to a muted trumpet. While Nah was reinventing the human voice, Wakenius was doing the same thing with a simple, six-string acoustic guitar. He played percussive rhythms and lightningfast leads and kept a bass going — all of this at the same time. The whole set was a high point, but I especially liked their rendition of Trent Reznor’s strangely beautiful song, “Hurt.” The church was as full as I have ever seen it and very few people left before the end of the concert.

For 29 of the 35 years that drummer Jason Smay has spent on the globe, his snappy beats have gotten asses out of seats and started them shaking. An amazingly solid, in-the-pocket performer, he’s kept time with an array of classic rock ’n’ rollers. Smay has done time — and kept it — in groups like Steve Grills and the Roadmasters, The Frantic Flattops (with yours truly), The Lustre Kings, The Hi-Risers, and Los Straitjackets. His current gig is with the rhythm-and-blues rocker from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, JD McPherson. With the release of “Signs and Signifiers,” McPherson has exploded on the scene, turning heads with his incendiary shows, showing up in music rags all over the map, being named by NPR as an “Artist You Should Know,” and appearing on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Late Show with David Letterman,” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” At the heart of this chaos is its rock ‘n’ roll beat. And at the heart of the beat is Smay, the Rochester drummer who just wanted to play the saxophone. “My dad played drums in the 1960’s,” Smay says. “But just for fun. My parents couldn’t afford a saxophone. So, in about the third grade, I started banging away on my dad’s drums. He used to always tell me, ‘If you want to play rock ’n’ roll that’s fine, but you should play jazz first to get some background. If you want to be anybody, you’ve got to start out on jazz first.” His parents arranged for lessons from teachers who covered the ins and outs of a musician’s life, along with the paradiddles and fills. “My parents always found guys that were working musicians,” says Smay. “As opposed to guys who were just teachers with no life experience.” Smay began hitting open-mic nights and sitting in with more seasoned cats, some more than twice his age. “I always seemed 14 CITY JULY 3-9, 2013

to hook up with older guys because of my taste in music,” he says. “I played with Steve Grills when I was like 20. Before that, I was playing with Janet Beaman, who has since passed away.” But Smay’s road to the road began with local trio The Hi-Risers. Smay had to light the fuse and get the band on the road once he joined. “It was more a sense of, why not?” he says. “Greg [Townson] had toured a bunch. And I was like, ‘I’ve got this connection in Chicago, I’ve got this connection in New York.’ And I guess I didn’t take no for an answer. I pushed and pushed and pushed, and you know, who doesn’t want to do that stuff?...I played with those guys for about 10 years and in that time I had joined Los Straitjackets.” Head Straitjacket Eddie Angel had first caught wind of Smay’s tenacious trap-set prowess when The Lustre Kings (with Smay on drums) backed him up on one of his “Guitar Party” tours. Angel also took the Hi-Risers, who were also on Angel’s Spinout Record label, on a threeweek Christmas tour. So when a spot on the throne opened up, Smay got the call, packed his drums, and donned a Luchador mask. For roughly four years Smay was in both bands, and even got Hi-Riser guitarist Townson a slot in Los Straitjackets when the band’s second guitarist was diagnosed with cancer. But Smay was forced to choose when he joined McPherson and the tour demands doubled. “It went from 100 nights a year to 200 nights a year,” he says. “I used to have more time on my hands to sit and enjoy music. But it’s getting harder and harder.” But he’s happy where he’s at, and at the success he’s enjoying. “I think it’s one of those things where it’s a quality product and it stands out,” he says
of McPherson’s music. “But there’s also that X-factor of the right place at the right time. I really love rhythm and blues — Chicago-style rhythm and blues — it’s my first love and this is in that vein. But the lyrics are a little more modern, so it’s not dated.” McPherson and his band have hit some enviable working-musician milestones, like recording at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, and appearing on national TV. On that last score, Smay had to fend for his drums as well as beat on them. David Letterman wanted Smay’s drums — bad. “He collects vintage drums,” Smay says. “He was standing at my drums tapping them before we went on. ‘So, tell me about these drums.’ And I’m like, ‘They’re just old Radio Kings,’ and he’s like, ‘OK, OK, good. What year are they from?’ And I’m like, ‘They’re mid-40’s.’ And he’s like, ‘How much you want for them?’ ‘Aw, man, I can’t sell them. They’re my drums, I need ’em.’ He had his assistant there with a checkbook. ‘No, no. Seriously, how much you want for them?’” The band is recording its second album — the first with Smay — in September at bass player Jimmy Sutton’s Hi-Style Studios. and plans to continue circling the globe. Smay comes home often to his wife and three sons (ages 11, 7, and 4) and to wrench on his late 70’s Monte Carlo or old Shovel Head. Smay says he’s going to stick this one out. You’ve got to wonder what band could call to make him jump ship. “I don’t know, man,” he says. “All the groups I like are no longer together.”

SINGER-SONGWRITER | CAMMY ENAHARO
Local songstress Cammy Enaharo’s tunes are truly a breath of fresh air. The songwriter recently released her first EP, and is currently a common presence on the Rochester scene. Enaharo’s instrument of choice is her baritone ukulele, which pairs perfectly with her hypnotic, contralto voice. Thanks to her sultry chops, comparisons to the legendary Lauryn Hill and the late Amy Winehouse are both imminent and appropriate. Enaharo’s style of music fits in nicely with the recent female singer-songwriter trend, joining musicians such as Ingrid Michaelson, Brandi Carlile, and Sara Bareilles in a movement toward confessional, vulnerable songwriting. Cammy Enaharo performs on Tuesday, July 9, 8 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. Abilenebarandlounge.com. — BY LEAH CREARY Hall Pass. Pelican’s Nest, 566

SINGER-SONGWRITER | JOHN VALENTI
JAZZ | PAUL HOFMANN
Songwriter John Valenti has a vintage charm that is rarely seen in our local scene. Similar to artists like St. Vincent and My Brightest Diamond, Valenti mixes an obvious love for standards with lo-fi, atmospheric production. His gift for melody, combined with sweeping strings and a simple, but catchy chord structure recalls the music of early rock-and-roll greats. Valenti himself writes that the world inside his mind “consists of a syrupy mixture of 60’s bubblegum pop, Cole Porter music, and black-and-white melodrama.” All of those influences are made apparent both through his live show, and throughout his EP, “Passive Aggressives Anonymous.”
Paul Hofmann’s annual summer concert will pay tribute to Dave Brubeck. He’ll be playing some of Brubeck’s best-known tunes like “Blue Rondo A La Turk,” “It’s A Raggy Waltz,” and “In Your Own Sweet Way,” and some less familiar works. Hofmann will be supported by some of Rochester’s finest players, including Howard Potter on vibraharp; Tom Phillips, piano; Doug Stone, tenor saxophone; Jeff Campbell, bass; and Mike Melito, drums.

METAL | MEGADETH
If you didn’t know better, you might think that Dave Mustaine got dealt a lame hand when he was fired from Metallica in 1983. In reality, his band Megadeth has been one of the most durable and influential thrash metal outfits of all time, having sold more 50 million records worldwide, while garnering consistent critical acclaim. (And, by the way, the band has never recorded a Bob Seger song. Just saying.) The group’s latest album, “Super Collider,” its 14th studio effort, is filled with the trademark technicality and devastating guitar solos that have defined Mustaine and company’s sound for almost 30 years. Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, Newsted, and Death Division also perform as “Gigantour” stops at CMAC. Megadeth performs Saturday, July 6, 4:30 p.m. at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. $32.45-$54.90. cmacevents.com. — DAVID YOCKEL, JR.

Classical Summer road trip with the RPO [ PREVIEW ] BY PALOMA CAPANNA
According to Ward Stare, the only place you’ll want to be on July 19 is at the Eastman Theatre, where he’ll lead the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in “three of the greatest works by three of the greatest composers.” Stare, a 30-year-old Rochester native, speaks of Beethoven, Mozart, and Wagner the way that some speak of summer vacations in national parks or Disneyland. He uses words like “dynamic,” “energetic,” “muscular,” and “jampacked,” and he promises that this concert will be an opportunity for us to hear the RPO “in all its glory in just the first piece.” The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra gives nearly 200 concerts per year, reaching 250,000 audience members. But if you think the RPO concert season coincides neatly with the school year, you are making the same mistake I once made when I was only looking at the traditional classical concerts performed on Thursday and Saturday nights at the Eastman Theatre. So this summer, forget about that gas-guzzling camper that only results in complaints from the kids, and get out to multiple venues where you can find RPO performances from Mozart to Main Street, complete with fireworks and baseball. Your family summer vacation with the RPO starts with a bang on Wednesday, July 3, at 8 p.m. at the CMAC Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua, for favorites like “The Stars and Stripes Forever,” “America the Beautiful,” and the “1812 Overture.” It was actually Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky who composed that last iconic favorite, which Americans have co-opted into a celebration of our own Independence Day. While there won’t be cannon fire, there will be fireworks. Michael Butterman conducts, and the orchestra will be joined by the Rochester Oratorio Society and guest narrator Paul Burgett. For RPO free concerts that are closer to home, you have only to travel to the Main Street Bridge of downtown Rochester for a free concert on Thursday, July 4. Butterman will also conduct this concert, and it will also be followed by fireworks. Another variation on this concert theme of the RPO, classics, and fireworks takes place Friday, July 5. It all begins with a Red Wings game against the Pawtucket Red Sox, followed by the RPO concert, followed by fireworks. The RPO is out-and-about and free again on July 10, at Ontario Beach Park with guest conductor Matthew Kraemer. The summer season will conclude with a Pops 18 CITY JULY 3-9, 2013
concert featuring Broadway star Matthew Morrison, a lead on TV’s “Glee.” While the extensive performance schedule for the RPO events from July 3 through July 20 may surprise you, Stare isn’t surprised — he’s been attending RPO concerts with his family since he was about 8 years old. “The RPO had a huge part in shaping my early musical development,” says Stare. “It’s the first really great orchestra that I ever heard growing up.” Stare, who got hooked on Beethoven when he was about 5 years old, says he always wanted to be a conductor, even while developing his talents as a trombonist. He attended Pittsford Mendon High School and participated in the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. At 18, Stare was appointed principal trombonist by the Lyric Opera of Chicago. He played a 26-week season with them while pursuing his conducting dreams by studying in Europe and at Aspen’s American Academy of Conducting. Stare made his conducting debut in 2007 with the Cleveland Orchestra. Whether it’s his youth or his own experiences, Stare is a big fan of parents bringing children to orchestra concerts. He says that the concert on July 19 is a great opportunity for just this, whether it’s the first time for an orchestra outing as a family or a routine activity. When asked for a script that parents could use to get their kids to eagerly come along to the RPO, Stare had no problems diving right into a description of the Wagner piece that will be on the program, “Overture to The Flying Dutchman.” Stare says the piece was featured in a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie — a helpful pitch that should cut against any perception children might have that classical means music to put them to sleep. The story of “The Flying Dutchman” was inspired by Wagner’s escape from Riga to London, Stare says. “He was behind with his creditors and they seized his passport. Wagner bribed the ship’s captain to let him sneak out, but the weather at sea was so bad that the trip that should have taken five days took two weeks, and they were nearly lost at sea as they had to go all the way up and around Norway. Wagner based the opera on those themes and imagery. It’s dynamic, energetic, muscular, and has lots of bass,” says Stare, adding, “And that’s just the first 12 minutes of the concert!” Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony received no
less an enthusiastic description from Stare, and it, too, featured prominently in a movie, “The
Rochester native Ward Stare will conduct the RPO on July 19 as part of the orchestra’s summer season. PHOTO BY SUZY GORMAN
King’s Speech.” “Anyone who remembers the final scene where the king finally delivers his speech can come out to hear it live in its original context of the full symphony,” says Stare. Stare describes the symphony as “classic Beethoven,” containing elements of “struggle, journey, and a celebration of life.” Going back to how you message for kids, Stare points out that the final movement, in particular, is a rousing climax that gives the orchestra “a real work-out.” The third work on the program is the Mozart clarinet concerto, featuring RPO’s own Kenny Grant. Stare and Grant have a relationship going back to Stare’s days playing with the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. Stare sums up his pitch for the Rochester community to turn out for the concert by paraphrasing jazz legend Duke Ellington. “He said it something like this: there’s good music and bad music. That’s true for classical, pop, any kind of music. I’m a big fan of the RPO and of conducting. I just want people to be excited about it because it’s worth being excited about.”

ART | FESTIVAL OF SOUND & LIGHT
I often wish I had been present to witness phenomenal artistic events in the past. For example, beginning in 1915, renowned Rochester architect Claude Bragdon dramatically transformed his architectural work throughout New York State by designing theatrical events and settings, which he called Festivals of Light and Song. The events took place at night and transformed previously familiar parks and spaces into wonderlands of music and lights. One event in New York City drew a crowd of more than 60,000 viewers. On Friday, July 5, at 9:30 p.m., Writers and Books (740 University Ave.) will stage a rebirth of the Festivals of Light and Song, using images projected via 3D video mapping onto the façade of its Bragdon-designed building. This initial event in what is intended to be a “Festivals of Sound & Light” series will be a tribute to Bragdon, incorporating his images, words, and a selection of music he used in his own festival events a century ago. The event is free and open to the public. Bring lawn chairs. Prior to the light show, check out the Read, White & Blue Book Sale at Writers & Books, held 6-9 p.m. With the exception of consignment books from local authors, all paperbacks will be $1 and all hardcover books will be $3. Admission is free! For more information, call 473-2590 or visit wab.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

I don’t know about your recollections of summer camp, dear readers, but mine are a mash-up of shyly watching my preteen crush being heroically outdoorsy, wanting to spend more time doing sporty things but being stuck with prissy, lip-glossy girls, getting a mother of a sunburn, being forced to attend boring, crappy-crafting workshops, and a “raid” in which some of the boys put worms and such in the girls’ sleeping bags. So you could say there is plenty of awkward-comedy material to mine from the topic.

Contrast portraits of firstworld countries’ male and female soldiers in decorous dress, or intense close-ups of helmeted faces, with Gilles Varon’s shot of an unarmored, youthful body from Biafra, loaded down with ammunition and burdens of the invisible sort, a man-child confronting the camera warily from beneath bandoliers of bullets.

Though the exhibit on gender currently showing at George Eastman House does not seek to lecture its viewers about contemporary socio-politics, its scope and range of representations provide ample opportunity for cultural and self-reflection. The first show presented by the Eastman House team under its new director, Bruce Barnes, “The Gender Show” explores the ways in which gender has been represented in photography over more than 170 years, from daguerreotypes to massive color prints, in a thick, juicy crosscut of the wide world. It should be enjoyed leisurely, with friends or alone, and given the proper time to digest fully. The museum’s galleries hold more than 130 images with plenty of representations of men and women in what we still know as traditional gender roles, as portraying the role of their dichotomous opposite, or in various manifestations of the androgynous spectrum. Images allude to the extended effects of our physical sexual traits: the 22 CITY JULY 3-9, 2013
specific pleasures and burdens they each designate, and their effects on our culture and relations with one another. From the steady gazes of these historic mirrors arise subtly nagging questions. What if we felt no awkwardness toward the androgyny of children? From birth we begin to be strictly marked by selfconscious kin with colors and themes. Soon, more specific physical aspects are shaped, as seen in Victor Keppler’s 1943 “First Hair Cut,” which presents one bewildered little angel newly shorn of his babyish curls, with a tearful mother and a proud barber. Early challenges to these definitions are found in Elias Goldensky’s 1920 “Head And Shoulders Study,” in which we find the young adult “beautiful boy” type, appreciated since antiquity. Women are depicted again and again as objects of desire, or in stations of domestic usefulness, and men as romantic pursuers and in the utilitarian and leadership roles. The exhibit includes a few exceptions, such as Lewis W. Hine’s 1935 series about the progressive Ethical Culture Schools that taught wood-shop classes to girls and cooking to boys. But in general, the subjects in these photos are often caught training the next generation to be the same. In Frank S. Scherschel’s 1940 work “Mother and Daughter,” a dolled-up wife transforms her
toddler’s hair into a pretty coif. In Susan Meiselas’ “Before the Show, Tunbridge, Vermont,” from her 1974 series “Carnival Strippers,” a boy is initiated into male voyeurism by a group of leering men. Though the child gives little away in terms of specific emotional expression, he is undoubtedly rapt. What we consider to be the paragons of femininity are built on so much artifice. Study the faces of the subjects. Recognize the self-conscious acting, the downright discontent among some of them. Not even Marilyn Monroe fit the mold she was helping to reinforce. The star’s prescribed fog dulled the aching hollowness of what her life had become for a short while, and different versions of her fantasy continue to be envied and emulated. Nickolas Murray’s 1952 shot of the starlet is all perfectly defined pout, bedroom eyes, and blooming figure displayed for consumption. In a captivating set of images by Chuck Samuels, the artist unflinchingly takes on the male gaze with his own flesh through a series of self-portraits based on iconic nude portraits of women by Avedon, Weston, Bellocq, and Man Ray. The ever-present disparity between upperclass and squalor rears its disturbing head, too. Some women are saved from domestic drudgery by their station in life, while others are condemned to it. Barbara Norfleet’s “Private House, New Providence Island, Bahamas,” captures the carefree demeanor
Anomalies are bright bolts in a dim routine of uneasy conformity that doesn’t even recognize itself. How you react to such daring tells a lot about how you’ll live your life — though such a jolting encounter doesn’t necessarily reflect your own path, it may be such a signal that inspires your own liberation, whatever that looks like. Definitions are flipped in Kalup Linzy’s 2006 video “Lollypop,” a brilliant, playful update on the theme of frustrated seduction and flirtatious dismissal, in which two men (Linzy and a friend) sit bare-chested, lip-synching a risqué 1930’s song. In the Entrance Gallery, Janine Antoni’s formal portrait triptych, “Mom and Dad,” depicts her parents in drag as each other or as themselves, three times as a couple in various combinations of gender. In so many of the works, the subtleties of gender expression seem to be more about navigating various power dynamics than anything else. But one series stands apart in its depiction of utter cooperation. Debbie Grossman’s series “My Pie Town” is a re-envisionment of Russell Lee’s body of photographs, created in 1940 for the United States Farm Security Administration, which focused on the depressed Pie Town, New Mexico, and its struggling inhabitants engaged in activities of work and rest. Here, the power between individuals seems balanced. As in many other images in the show, the ghost of strife/hard living haunts the subjects, and the sense of harmonious living almost certainly lingers from the desperate lack of nonsense present in the original subjects. Using Photoshop, Grossman seamlessly replaced any male faces and attributes in the images with more feminine features to create a township entirely populated by women and girls. The series offers an opportunity not only to conceive of the capacity of women to meet any task demanded of them if the need is present and the will serves, but also to picture how natural it is to love and struggle and play together, regardless of what combination of features our bodies possess.

The president in peril again [ REVIEW ] BY GEORGE GRELLA
“White House Down” (PG-13), DIRECTED BY ROLAND EMMERICH NOW PLAYING
The appearance of “White House Down,” a thriller about a terrorist attack on the White House only a short time after “Olympus Has Fallen,” a thriller about a terrorist attack on the White House, should inspire more commentary than the obvious remarks about coincidence. The movies, after all, are the creation of the American film industry, that nest of leftist Hollywood “elitists” who enliven the erotic dreams of conservative crazies and inspire those crybabies
to produce their fine Republican whine. Two such similar pictures so close together suggest that once again popular film reflects some sinister undercurrents in the culture, the perfectly plausible notion that a good portion of the audience really wants to see their president in peril. (“Air Force One,” “Independence Day,” “Olympus Has Fallen,” and this film, by the way, all feature obvious surrogates for Democratic presidents — think about it.) In the case of “White House Down” the president also happens to be an African American, James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx), who has just set forth a plan to withdraw all American forces from the Middle East and convene a meeting of all the region’s leaders to establish a permanent peace. The inescapable similarities to Barack Obama underline the film’s connection to current events; the various motivations of the attackers, especially the hatred they all voice, follow quite closely the opinions uttered every day by politicians, pundits, and commentators.

The plot develops in several directions, focusing on a handful or people connected in one way or another to the White House and the presidency. John Cale (Channing Tatum), a plainclothes Capitol policeman hoping to join the Secret Service, visits the place for an interview, and brings his daughter Emily (Joey King), a history buff and a fan of the president, for a tour. He doesn’t get the job, but as their tour begins, a large, heavily armed gang of gunmen explode a bomb, shoot scores of guards and agents, take the tourists hostage, and demand $400 million and the usual airplane exit. Instead of simply storming the place, as in “Olympus Has Fallen,” this group enters surreptitiously and more or less peacefully, through possessing all the necessary access codes, obtained from the head of the Secret Service (James Woods), of all people, who harbors his own reasons for treachery. The gang includes a number of representatives of lunatic groups — white supremacists, ex-mercenaries, hardened special-operations soldiers, probably a Tea Party member or two, for all we know — all of them bearing some kind of grudge against the government. As it turns out, the whole complicated assault actually constitutes an attempt at a coup d’état inspired by devotion to the aims and profits of the military-industrial complex. In addition to its slam-bang, nonstop, and extremely violent action, the movie provides NEW!

moments of humor and some convincing human touches. Little Emily Cale serves as one of its heroes, taking videos of the gang with her phone and sending them out over the Internet, which helps identify the gunmen. Unsurprisingly, contemporary electronic technology dominates much of the methods of the attackers, including control of the White House security devices, the firing of a missile to shoot down the vice president’s plane, and of course, access to the launch codes that will initiate a nuclear strike on the Middle East. Channing Tatum, a fast-rising star, seems likely to succeed the mighty Arnold and the lesser Bruce as the muscular action hero of the day. He possesses a convincing physical presence and performs credibly as the anguished, helpless father of a young girl in terrible danger. His hand-to-hand fights with the leader of the terrorists (Jason Clarke) take up far too much screen time, but show him as virtually indestructible no matter what weapon his adversary uses against him. “White House Down” sustains its plot and employs its excellent cast with skill and conviction. The sets, the effects, the manipulation of contemporary reality with utter authenticity all demonstrate the slickness and competence of Hollywood filmmaking at its best. When those Hollywood leftist elites attempt to take down the president of the United States, they do a terrific job.
The buddy-cop genre has always been an almost exclusively male club. The plots of these films typically follow a strict formula revolving around two law-enforcement types whose personalities clash upon first meeting, but who must find a way to work together to bring down a big bad, violating the civil rights of every suspect they encounter along the way, before ultimately forging a powerful friendship with one another. That it’s taken this long for someone to make a buddy-cop movie with female leads is mind boggling, and telling about the sorry state of Hollywood and its relationship with women, even in this day and age. Taking its inspiration from films like “48 Hrs.” and the “Lethal Weapon” series, “The Heat” mostly sticks to the tropes of the genre. But it works, largely thanks to the chemistry between its talented and likeable lead actresses. Starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, the film calls upon both actresses to play characters well within their respective wheelhouses. Bullock (in her first starring role since winning the

Oscar for “The Blind Side” almost four years ago) is special agent Sarah Ashburn, an uptight, workaholic FBI agent who is extremely good at her job, but disliked within her department because of her massive ego and condescending attitude toward others. After learning that Sarah’s got a shot at a possible promotion, her supervisor sends Sarah to Boston to lead an investigation into a massive drug ring, as a way to prove herself and show that she can work well with her fellow lawenforcement agents. McCarthy portrays Shannon Mullins, a spectacularly vulgar, loudmouthed detective with the Boston police department. Naturally, after getting into an altercation the second they meet one another, the two women learn that they’re to be partners and are forced to find common ground if they have any hope of bringing down the nefarious kingpin. I’d love to see McCarthy attempt to break out of the box she’s built for herself a bit more in the future, but it’s impossible to deny that she’s great at what she does. She has the ability to remain a hugely likeable presence, even if the character she’s portraying is a complete asshole. A staple of the buddy-cop genre typically revolves around how the partners grow and learn from one another, so I appreciated the fact that the script allows Mullins to be herself the entire way through, no growth required. Bullock is mainly tasked with playing the straight woman to McCarthy’s whirling dervish of chaos, but doesn’t allow herself to be completely upstaged and earns plenty of laughs herself (“That is a misrepresentation of my vagina.”). Director Paul Feig’s offbeat casting choices fill out the supporting characters with talented comedians, including “MadTV” alum Michael McDonald as a ruthless drug-ring enforcer, and Kaitlin Olson (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), inexplicably sporting a ridiculous Russian accent.

Mesmerizing and tranquil, this seldom-screened film of the three-day concert that drew 25,000 people documents the sun-soaked, beer-drenched, smoky affair with candor.

involving Mullins’ cartoonishly belligerent Southie family are hilarious, though Jane Curtin is wasted as Mullins’ mother. I wish that scripter Katie Dippold (previously a staff writer on the TV show “Parks and Recreation”) had come up with a more compelling, less by-thenumbers plot to contain these characters. But honestly, the plot doesn’t usually matter in these films. What’s important is the chemistry between its leads and the ways they find to make their unique skill sets work in tandem. McCarthy and Bullock have a funny, awkward rapport. And while “The Heat” would have been even more groundbreaking had it been a true action-comedy starring two women (the film is, despite its surprisingly high body count, basically a workplace comedy), Dippold and Feig (“Bridesmaids”) are clearly more comfortable allowing the comedy to be front-and-center. Dippold adds in some scenes where Ashburn and Mullins have to deal with the misogynistic attitudes of their fellow officers, but mostly the film sticks to the well-worn formula of the genre. What’s great about “The Heat” is the way in which it makes it clear that these are two women who are incredibly good at their jobs and don’t care what the men around them think. As directed by Feig, the films tends to stumble its way through its boilerplate action scenes. The director’s forte is obviously his relationship with his actors; he’s able to get strong performances from everyone he works with, but his movies tend to be shapeless, oddly paced, and devoid of any sort of noticeable style (unless you argue that those attributes are a style in and of themselves). I like Feig’s films, but I can’t help wondering what this one would have been if a director with a background in action had taken a crack at it. Maybe for the sequel.

change is the addition of referees, who make the calls on the field (however, the “spirit of the game” is still very much alive, and players can appeal decisions). Instead of playing to a predetermined score, AUDL games are timed, with four quarters of 12 minutes each and a 15-minute half time. If the score is tied, a five-minute overtime period will be played. If the score remains tied after overtime, a second overtime will be played in which the first team to score wins. Other notable changes include a drop in the stall count from 10 seconds to seven, a five-yard penalty for traveling when catching the disc, and a turnover for
traveling when throwing the disc. There are also other rules that result in five-, 10-, or 20-yard penalties, depending on the severity of the infraction. “When I started, I did not take it seriously,” says Dragons player Skylar Brunner. “I thought, ‘Oh, this is kind of cool.’ Now, it’s my life.” It shows. The Dragons players sprint up and down the field — back and forth — hundreds of times per game, leaping like gazelles and diving like Olympic champions, reaching, grasping for every last catch. And even at heights of 4 feet in the air or sliding on their bellies, their fingertips somehow nearly always wrap around the edges of the
plastic disc that’s cutting through the air at astonishing speeds. All that skill is a result of weekly practices and constant playing. Becker says that between team practices, Dragons games, and pick-up games, he plays Ultimate pretty much every day of the week, an ethic echoed by pretty much all of his teammates. “In December, it’s more like six days a week,” he jokes. (I think.) “This isn’t just a sport, it’s a lifestyle,” Becker says. One that so many in Rochester seem to have embraced. “I’ve met the best friends of my life this way. I’m always itching to get out on that field. And I wouldn’t trade that for anything.”

A Browncroft Beauty, Ready to Become Home 219 Browncroft Boulevard In 1914, when Charles Brown subdivided 300 acres of his nursery to create the Browncroft neighborhood, he envisioned a completely planned tract that would become a Rochester showplace. Much detail was paid to the aesthetics of the neighborhood: elaborate flowering trees and greenery created a parklike atmosphere while restrictive covenants determined the style of homes to be built. And all these years later, the Browncroft neighborhood is still one of the most idyllic enclaves in the city! On Browncroft Boulevard, canopied by Sycamores and London Planetrees, sits 11 mostly stucco and brick-clad homes developed by Cusimano, a builder who developed beautiful architecture throughout the city in the early 20th century. Much detail was paid to the work, demonstrated wonderfully in this Tudor Revival style residence, complete with sweeping angled gables, broad banks of windows, flower boxes and a corner entry. The curved brick walkway leads to a semienclosed portico, allowing a well-preserved wooden arched door to set the tone for this historic home. The interior retains all of the original pocket and leaded glass doors. The home’s leaded glass windows have been maintained throughout the years, allowing for seamless functionality for generations to come. Walking through a large pocket door, one enters the living room, which boasts oak flooring bordered with dark inlays and intricate plaster-cast crown moldings, shipped by way of Italy thanks to Cusimano! The living room also features a woodburning fireplace flanked by bookshelves and decorative leaded glass windows.
Entertainers will rejoice with the size of the dining room. The beautiful glass chandelier appears to be original to the home and the built-in cabinet affords no shortage for glassware displays. Through a swinging door is the cook’s workshop, the kitchen. For a house of this era, the footprint is unusually spacious and features an adjoining breakfast room. The staircase leads to a second level with three large bedrooms featuring oak floors, plenty of storage and diamond-paned leaded glass windows. The full bath has been sensitively remodeled. Not included in the square footage is a finished portion of the attic. The outdoor space is wonderfully utilized. The brick patio in the fenced yard lends itself perfectly to summer barbeques and family gatherings. Those unfamiliar with the Browncroft neighborhood will delight in the amenities found within walking distance. The Winton Branch library is a block away, so too is the bustling Winfield Grille and Wintonaire, staples in the neighborhood. To the east is Ellison Park, 447 acres of natural woodlands, walking trails and playgrounds. This unique property is being offered at $209,900.
