No handouts; just justice Monday’s New York Post carried a story with this title: “Broke Cities Beg Gov Dime and Dime Again.” Cute headline. But the Post was talking about us. And it was quite an insult. According to Post writer Fredric Dicker, Rochester, Yonkers, and Syracuse “are ‘close to bankruptcy’ and are looking for a bailout from Gov. Cuomo’s administration.” The Yonkers mayor, the Syracuse mayor, and our Tom Richards “have held secret talks in recent weeks on their financial options,” Dicker wrote, sometimes joined by the mayors of Buffalo and Albany. Dicker says an unnamed “Cuomo administration source” told him that the mayors need to shape up and explain why they’re having trouble – and what they’re going to do to solve their problems. “To come to us year after year for a handout as they have been doing, only to come back next year asking for the same handout, is a nonstarter,” Dicker says the source told him. “It doesn’t work.” First off, Richards noted on Tuesday, Rochester isn’t facing bankruptcy. But we do need state help. As Richards and the Yonkers and Syracuse mayors said in a joint statement on Monday, they are not seeking handouts. They have “repeatedly and with great pain” cut services and staff. And they can’t fix the problem themselves. The mayors didn’t sound angry about all this. But I am. Dicker’s article and (if true) the comment from the “Cuomo administration source” are simply preposterous. I’m not familiar with the situation in Yonkers and Syracuse, but I certainly am with Rochester’s. In the past 41 years, I’ve watched Rochester change from a city with a growing population and a thriving downtown to the struggling city it is today. And I will swear on a stack of whatever you want that it wasn’t because of corruption or waste. In fact, we’re damned lucky that the situation isn’t worse than it is. I have watched as a succession of mayors, City Council members, school district leaders, neighborhood activists, social-service and philanthropic leaders, and quite a few business leaders struggled to keep the city safe, whole, and attractive. I have watched as suburban sprawl – aided and abetted by New York’s destructive home-rule system, tax policies, and federal housing and transportation policies – has

attempted to suck the life out of this city. I have watched as the leadership of the Monroe County Republican Party moved sharply away from Lou Morin’s Community of Monroe commitment. I have heard mayor after mayor after mayor after mayor warn about what lies ahead; I have watched them cut services. And I have watched as the city and the school district fought over money, each trying to serve a growing population of poor people with growing needs. Cities house and educate the New Yorkers that the rest of the state doesn’t want – and has run from. Cities host – tax-free – the hospitals, government offices, and arts centers that suburban residents value. Cities provide the police and fire protection for those facilities. Cities clean the streets on which suburbanites drive to get to those facilities. We are not asking for a handout. We are asking for justice. Non-urban areas of the state – and the bigwigs in Albany, Democratic and Republican – need to understand the enormity of the burden cities bear, if for no other reason than self interest. What do you think will happen if New York State’s cities go belly up? What do you think will happen if desperately needed services are cut in our cities, if police and fire departments are emasculated? If the quality of life for the remaining middle and upper-income city residents deteriorates so badly that they move out? Do you really think you can keep walling up the state’s poor inside the cities – slamming the door, for instance, on the future for millions of inner-city children? Do you think there will be no consequences for the larger community? And, thinking less selfishly, have we really come to this? Do we no longer care about the poor? Really?

Literature and Art Walk
I find it truly hard to believe that there can be an entire article on the opening of the Art Walk Extension and absolutely not one mention is made of either Poets Walk or Story Walk, major components of the newly opened expansion (“Art Walk Extension Opens,” News). There was certainly ample opportunity to include them when the subject of sidewalks was raised by the writers of this article, but no, included were only references to the lighting, benches, and sculptures. When I spoke at the ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Art Walk Extension on Thursday afternoon, I mentioned that I was there to represent words and literature, the art form that is almost always overlooked or forgotten when the subject of Art (capital A), is addressed. What is so unique and heartening about the new Art Walk Extension, I said at that event, was that poetry and words were included and play such a major role in this exciting addition to our city’s literal, and figurative, cultural landscape. City’s complete neglect of the two Walks in your reporting does much to support my contention. Very disappointing from a media outlet that relies so heavily on words to get your message out.

On our story on activists’ efforts to get city officials to focus on homelessness: It is a complex problem, says City Council person Spaull. However, not throwing people out onto the street who have the ability to pay for their residence (or in the case of the Windom-Beys and the lady on Appleton Street who paid for their homes in full) would be a good start. Begin by not making more people homeless with a moratorium on foreclosures. I don’t want to believe that the Council tacitly favors the duplicitous actions of the big banks, who start foreclosure actions on homeowners while they are also re-negotiating mortgages with them. This foreclosure situation is as damaging to our community as
Katrina was to New Orleans as far as displacing homeowners. There was talk in NOLA of the hurricane having “cleaned house” of lower-income residents. The talk also was that quite a few people in NOLA government were fine with that. The city sitting on their hands and refusing to stop the hurricane of fraudulent foreclosure activity is starting to have a similar vibe.
aggressive look at the potential devastating consequences of those lakes being contaminated. The potential massive clean-up costs cannot now be calculated, but the city certainly cannot afford it, given its current financial poor health.
The promise of a different urban educational scenario is again gone or at least eroding (“Vargas Makes No Promises,” News Blog). I’ve watched since Janey; if these men continue to fail, let’s stop playing with our children; let’s start talking about the structure. Break up the district...

College Town, car town
Too bad UR College Town ditched the transit center and is becoming MORE car-centric with its new expressway ramp and 1,525-space parking garage (“College Town Kick-off,” News). Not very progressive, UR. As someone who CHOOSES to commute by bike and occasionally take the bus in extreme weather, this is very disappointing. Know your history. The car destroyed Rochester.

Mitt Romney as chameleon
I’m not sure about Obama, although I’ll vote for him as I did in 2008. What I am sure of is that Romney cannot be trusted. We don’t know what he believes in. The October 9 edition of Frontline on PBS chronicled both Romney and Obama. Romney, as Massachusetts governor, pioneered mandated health care and was pro choice. Now he is pro life and, in his debate with Obama on October 3, he contends that though “Obamacare” is nearly exactly like “Romneycare” and, indeed, modeled after it, it should be for the states to decide. I contend that everyone in this country should have access to the same kind of health care, not just the people in Massachusetts. Romney is a chameleon; he’s changed his stripes to reflect his political environment. Frontline lays this out in chilling detail. Conservatives? Buyer beware! JILL GRUBER, DANSVILLE

Changing the schools
Posted on rochestercitynewspaper.com Because breaking up the district will make things better? The problems of the district are closely related to the demise of the city. Fix the city and you will fix the schools. It really is a simple concept. It is like trying to bail water out of a boat with a hole. You will not be successful unless you fix the hole. Vargas knows that the problems are not all about the schools or teachers, but rather societal. JOE

On a reader’s comment disputing the viability of renewable energy systems: Renewables are definitely viable today. In some remote places – northern Maine, islands off the coast of Maine, Montana, etc. – people are so far removed from the grid that they rely on solar and wind. These technologies are both proven and cost effective. As for the idea that renewables would throw us back to pre-19th century living standards: do those standards include cleaner air? No traffic jams? Conserving energy isn’t a throwback to the past; it is the hope for the future. Decentralization of power is what is needed. The grid is so inefficient. If everyone was responsible for generating and conserving their own energy, society would be far more advanced and better off. There are homes that have no heating or cooling systems because of how the home is constructed. Those homes, with solar and wind, are self-sufficient. I also had to laugh about how a carbon tax will only raise the cost of energy. People are currently taxing themselves by driving SUV’s instead of Priuses, and they pay that penalty willingly.

Otterness installation begins
Work continues on the installation of the Memorial Art Gallery’s Centennial Sculpture Park, specifically the large-scale piece by Tom Otterness, which will be situated near the corner of North Goodman Street and University Avenue. The process should continue over the next several weeks, depending on weather conditions, says a MAG spokesperson.
Kodak retirees may take a hit
Eastman Kodak filed a motion in US Bankruptcy Court to end retiree health benefits by the end of the year. Kodak would agree to give the retiree committee about $7 million in cash and a $15 million secured claim on the company’s assets. If the court approves Kodak’s request, the company could erase more than $1 billion in retiree obligations, impacting about 25,000 local retirees.
Brooks gaining ground
A new Siena poll showed Monroe County Executive Maggie Brooks, a Republican, trailing Democratic Representative Louise Slaughter by five points in
the race to represent the 25th Congressional District. A previous poll had the incumbent Slaughter up by about 10 points. The two square off in a debate later this week.
County gets antifracking petitions Local anti-fracking advocates delivered petitions to County Executive Maggie Brooks and the County Legislature asking them to ban fracking and related activities on county property. That would include disposing of wastes in the landfill, treating wastes at the water treatment plant, and spreading used fracking fluid on county roads. The petitions had more than 4,000 signatures.

Final audit released
The state Comptroller’s Office released the final version of an audit report on the county’s use of a local development corporation to upgrade public safety communications equipment. The report says the county is overpaying by $39 million over the course of the 20-year contract with Monroe Security and Safety Systems LDC. The county has said that the audit is partisan and lacks credibility.

Enormous progress has been made in the treatment of HIV/AIDS since the beginning of the pandemic more than 30 years ago. But a cure remains elusive, and some segments of society, particularly the African American community, continue to experience significant rates of infection. National and local experts, researchers, health-care workers, and activists will discuss the crisis at a symposium, “HIV/AIDS Crisis Among African Americans” from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, October 19. The event is sponsored by the University of Rochester. One in 16 African-American men and one in 32 AfricanAmerican women will learn at some point in their lives that they have HIV, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even though African Americans make up less than 14 percent of the US population, they represent half of all new HIV infections, the CDC says.
While scientists inch closer to a vaccine and other breakthroughs, some health-care experts question whether eradicating the disease is even possible until the underlying causes of the crisis are better understood. Inequities born out of a mix of racism, homophobia, and poverty are helping the disease spread disproportionately in minority communities, says Cathy Bunce, a symposium panel member and principal HIV investigator with the University of Rochester Medical Center. Rochester residents between the ages of 18 to 26 accounted for most of the new cases in the city in 2010, she says. The symposium is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Rush Rhees Library. It’s free and open to the public.

City moves on land banks
City of Rochester officials are taking steps toward setting up a land bank, a nonprofit entity intended to serve as a tool to address vacant properties. Last year, New York passed legislation authorizing 10 land banks across the state. Earlier this year it signed off on five, including one in Erie County. And earlier this month, state officials announced that the second round of applications is due on November 30. Rochester might submit an application; staff members at City Hall are developing recommendations for City Council, as well as legislation for Council members to consider. The legislation would lay out the land bank’s structure, including choosing a name, providing articles of incorporation, and creating a board of directors, says Bret Garwood, the city’s director of business and housing development. City officials have yet to decide whether they’ll ultimately pursue the land bank. But a working group of staff, City Council members, and representatives from Greater Rochester Housing Partnership previously recommended pursuing the concept. The land bank would supplement existing real estate, commercial development, and vacant property efforts, Garwood says. Land banks acquire tax delinquent or foreclosed properties and ultimately sell or
After about a year-and-a-half on the job, Jean-Claude Brizard is out as CEO of the Chicago Public School System. | Brizard reportedly said he was becoming a distraction from the mission to help Chicago’s children, reports the Chicago Tribune. Brizard made a similar statement before leaving the Rochester school system, where he was superintendent from late 2007 to April 2011. | Brizard left Rochester for the Chicago post under a cloud of controversy. He had tried to push an agenda similar to that espoused by education reformers Joel Klein, former head of the New York City school system, and Michelle Rhee, former head of the Washington, DC schools. | Though he initially had the support of most Rochester school board members, Brizard and Rochester Teachers Association President Adam Urbanski became bitter adversaries. In an overwhelming vote of no confidence against Brizard, Rochester teachers expressed their dissatisfaction with his management and communication style. | It was widely expected that Brizard would succeed under Chicago’s mayoral control form of school management, but the Chicago teachers strike unleashed a weeklong drama that gripped the nation. | Brizard is being replaced by Barbara ByrdBennett, the Chicago district’s chief education officer, according to the Tribune.

transfer them to new owners. They function as an alternative to the traditional taxforeclosure auctions and tax lien sales that governments use to try to recoup lost revenue. Bret Garwood. FILE PHOTO Proponents say the entities have some distinct advantages, such as making it easier for municipalities to clear titles on tax-foreclosed properties. An unclear title can – and does – prevent a city from selling a foreclosed property. Land banks also have more discretion than governments when they sell foreclosed properties. They can rehabilitate a property and sell it. Or they can search for a new owner who has a track record of fixing properties up and returning them to use. Land banks can also take properties off of the market through demolitions or lot transfers. If a delinquent property is located between two well-kept homes, land banks will often take possession, demolish any structures, split the lot, and transfer half to each neighbor.

POLITICS | BY JEREMY MOULE
Jill Stein and the politics of courage Despite the public’s frequent frustration with the quality of candidates for elected office, third parties have historically had trouble gaining traction. They lack the money and other resources necessary to be competitive. But third parties have had success pushing issues into the mainstream — forcing the major party candidates to pay attention. The abolition, women’s suffrage, and labor movements all had their own political parties that eventually got government to act on their issues, says Jill Stein, the Green Party’s candidate for president.

Stein: If you look at the exit polls from Florida in 2000, they show that [former Green Party presidential candidate] Ralph Nader did not steal the election. The Supreme Court stole the election. And, in fact, Nader’s voters, based on exit polling by CNN and others, came equally from Democrats and Republicans, and the vast majority of his voters didn’t belong to either party. This politics of fear that has told people “You don’t dare stand up and vote for a third party,” has brought us everything we were afraid of. All those progressives, people of conscience were told to be quiet and go with the lesser evil so you wouldn’t get a president expanding the war, bailing out Wall Street, attacking immigrant rights, violating our civil liberties. All of that we’ve gotten by the droves because we’ve been quiet.

Stein’s platform, dubbed the Green New Deal, calls for addressing economic inequality through community-based jobs programs and tax reforms. The platform also includes ending the Wall Street bailouts, forgiving student loans, providing free tuition at public colleges and universities, and transitioning to a clean-energy economy. Stein was in Rochester last week, delivering a harsh critique of the Obama administration’s record on civil rights and national defense. As examples, she cited the administration’s fight to continue indefinite definitions and the increasing use of drone warfare in places like Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia. “We have really poisoned public opinion against us with a military effort that has incredibly high civilian casualties,” Stein says. “When you’re dropping bombs on weddings and funerals, it’s not a good way to win the hearts and minds of the Middle East.” Stein also talked about health-care reform, trade agreements, Social Security, and energy. An edited version of a conversation with Stein follows:

What is your role in this presidential campaign?
While I’m not holding my breath that we’re going to win the White House, I’m not ruling it out either because we are in really extraordinary times. Whether we win the White House this time or next time, the point is we are regaining our political voice and our political courage so that everyday people can once again have a word in this political system and take it back. We are only accelerating in the wrong direction under both corporate political parties. We’ve seen a massive transfer of wealth — a massive redistribution of wealth — from the middle and working class and the poor, up to the top 1 percent, which now controls 40 percent of the wealth. And the bottom 50 percent has 1 percent of the wealth. This is outrageous and it continues with tax cuts for the wealthy. We’re looking at the continued offshoring of our jobs. Obama is negotiating another free-trade agreement right now, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which will continue to offshore jobs, undermine wages at home, and actually compromise American sovereignty. We’re looking at attacks on Medicare and Social Security. There are hints right now from the White House that they are going to collaborate with Republicans to go after Social Security cost of living adjustments, which would be terrible. Social Security is barely keeping tens of millions of elders out of poverty and you start further compromising its already marginal payments, you’ve got big trouble. You can’t leave out the climate catastrophe that we are heading into full bore. And the president having given the thumbs up to all the “Drill, Baby, Drill” policies; the green light to fracking, which will have a huge impact on New York State, including some of the water that supplies this county. So the president has given the thumbs-up to all of that and undermined the international climate accords. What’s missing in the debate on taxes?
The big picture, I think, is missing from the debate. It’s really important when you talk about taxes to look at how taxes add up and who is paying the burden overall. When you look at income taxes, corporate taxes, payroll, sales, and so on, what you see is that there’s been a massive transfer of taxation. Not only has wealth gone to the top, but middle income 10 City OCTOBER 17-23, 2012
and working and low income people are paying high rates of taxation — especially when you look at the rise in property taxes and the dramatic drop in the upper income tax brackets. We’re calling for major categories of tax reform to create tax justice and relieve the excessive burden on working people. We’re calling for taxing capital gains as income and, in fact, that is where the very richest people have their vast resources of wealth. So that is number one. Number two, we need to tax Wall Street a small sales tax. If they paid onehalf a percent, that would bring in $350 billion a year for things that we need to create a society that we all benefit from. What other important issues are the Obama and Romney campaigns missing?
We need to talk about how we’re going to create good jobs. Obama points to General Motors, but the truth needs to be told about General Motors: it’s [the bailout] a recovery for CEO’s, it’s not a recovery for workers whose wages have been slashed. We need to create jobs, now, on an emergency basis. So we need to talk about how we get the economy back on track for working people. That’s what the Green New Deal will do. By putting the dollars directly into job creation at the community level, we can get people back to work. They’re not talking about a real health-care solution. On one hand, Obama has the Affordable Care Act, which doesn’t do the trick. I live in Massachusetts; we’ve had it for five years. It doesn’t go very far and it helps one group at the cost of many other groups. So it helps the very poor in opening up care that they didn’t have, but at the cost of the near poor, for whom costs skyrockets. We’re calling for Medicare for all. This is the only way that we’re going to get to care that is affordable and truly comprehensive. This essentially means just drop the eligibility age on Medicare and fix the pharmaceutical boondoggle, Medicare Part D, so that we can actually negotiate and bring down the price of pharmaceuticals. That will put Medicare back on a steady financial footing. So the way to fix Medicare is by making it Medicare for all and ensuring that it’s not being ripped off by private health insurance.
Realistically, what can be done to break the stranglehold corporations have on US politics?
I think ‘we’ is the operative word there. Throughout history, you can look back on when we have gotten really profound social change. The abolition of slavery, the American Revolution for that matter, Susan B. Anthony and the women’s suffrage movement, and the labor movement — they’ve all taken a social movement on the ground and an independent political party that could drive that agenda into the mainstream and move it forward. I think we’re seeing that politics of courage on the ground now in the fight of the Chicago Teachers Union; in the fight of the union workers at Strong Memorial Hospital — they’re standing up for their rights; in the fights to stop the Keystone pipeline; the efforts to blockade fracking sites, nuclear power plants; eviction blockades; student strikes to stop tuition hikes. We’re seeing the Occupy movement all over the country, which is still alive and well. Even though it’s been evicted from its occupations, it’s working to break up the big banks and to assist all those other good social movements that are in full force right now. There is a social movement that’s alive and well — it needs a political voice. And I think it’s a psychological war at this point because that’s the only tool that they have to use against us. We have the facts on our side, we have justice, we have the course of history on our side. If people actually cast off this politics of fear and took the politics of courage into the voting booth, we would see politics turned on its head in the course of this election.

[ REVIEW ] BY JAMES LEACH
It’s a chilly Wednesday evening in early October. The sheds at the Rochester Public Market are vacant, a brisk wind chasing bits of paper and leaves around the wide-open space. On the edges of the market, warehouses, brooding ramparts of industrial-grey concrete and steel rolling doors, stand shuttered and dead under the glare of security lights. This is where the penultimate scene of a Sam Spade novel would take place, the trenchcoatsporting hero stalking in to meet with a representative of a local fraternal organization. Look around the Market at this hour of the night and the word “gritty” comes to mind. Against this dull background the neon sign above the door of Cure, the Public Market’s first fulltime restaurant, pops out at you like ruby lipstick against snow, the glowing windows beneath it promising warmth in a cold, hard world.
On this Wednesday evening, the 6month-old Cure is packed. Every table is full, the bar is stacked two deep, and the ebb and flow of a dozen or more conversations is punctuated with the clink of cutlery and the staccato rattle of cocktail shakers behind the bar. The vibe of the place is irresistibly French — the only thing missing is a cloud of smoke from a hundred Gitanes hovering near the ceiling. Taking advantage of a group-migration from the bar (a six-top has just come available), I slide onto a stool and scoop up the menu. Cure is not Chef Dan Martello and Chuck Cerankosky’s first restaurant — that would be the eminently successful Good Luck on Anderson Avenue. But it is the restaurant that is closest to their original concept for Good Luck: a bar with a small, carefully considered menu emphasizing the best of French bistro food. It’s not a wine bar, although there is an excellent and very reasonably priced wine list available. This is a cocktail lounge, the back bar looking more like an alchemist’s workshop than anything else, with a whole wall of various bitters and nameless bottles and phials full of fragrant liquors and fruit essences. I’m a fan of good gin, and “Faith in Medicine” ($8),
and joints of meat (but Chef Martello told me that he plans to start roasting whole lamb in the near future). Gather some friends and start your feast with haddock brouilles, a simple dish requiring very careful preparation. Heat a skillet red hot, layer in eggs beaten to a froth with cream, allow them to barely set and then place a fillet of haddock, a drizzle of onion-laced bechamel sauce, and a scattering of bread crumbs on top. Slide the whole thing under a broiler for a few minutes. The result is nothing short of sublime: scrambled eggs as God Himself intended they should be. Follow that with a brace of pheasant and truffle sausages served atop gorgeously roasted carrots and brussels sprouts and tossed with a bit of currant-enriched demiglace ($15). Or, if you are feeling particularly adventurous, ask for boudin noir, housemade blood sausage ($15). Deep purple-red and a bit earthy, but not at all bloody-tasting or tangy from the iron, the cabbage-potato puree beneath the sausages soaks up juices like a sponge and the caramelized apples add a welcome sweet accent to the dish.
made with Plymouth gin, housemade tonic syrup, a bit of Swedish-style rum, and a splash of champagne to lighten things up, seemed like the perfect thing to sip while I plotted my course through the menu. The choice between a plate of charcuterie — Martello and his staff make prosciutto cotto and mortadella in-house, along with all of the pickles and mustard that come with the dish ($16) — and a selection of three different terrines ($7 each) was a difficult one. But I couldn’t pass up a rabbit-mushroom pate on such a wintryfeeling night. It was an excellent decision: the country-style terrine was satisfyingly toothsome, studded with bits of pistachio and enhanced with allspice and clove, the chicken liverwurst silky smooth and deeply flavored, wonderful slathered on Flour City Bakery bread with a cornichon or a slice of pickled banana pepper to offset the fat. About a hundred years ago, people ate
differently. Look at the much-ballyhooed menu for the last night on the Titanic, or for Delmonico’s in Manhattan, and you’ll see a world in which fish was followed by poultry, which was in turn followed by meat. Cure allows you to sample a bit of that era, albeit without the sizzling roasts
demi-glace when a plate with a goldenbrown portion of uniformly cross-hatched pork belly ($17) was delivered to us by Chef Martello himself (on really busy nights, the chef sometimes turns kitchen runner). Sitting atop an emerald heap of sauteed spinach and snuggled next to a ramekin full of sweet-potato puree topped with melted Gruyere cheese (the chef ’s reinterpretation of potatoes Lyonnaise), the pork belly was one of the meatiest I’ve ever encountered, more like a tenderloin topped with a layer of chicharrons rather than the proto-bacon that I’ve had elsewhere. The fatty layer was well-rendered, buttery and rich. The meat, bathed in all of that rendered goodness, was just shy of fork-tender. After such a meal, offering dessert seems cruel. Instead of going for berry trifle with Greek yogurt, or a pair of very cute moltenchocolate cakes, instead opt for one of Cure’s intriguing ice creams, like the butteredpopcorn concoction I sampled on my first visit on a dark and stormy Sunday night. My server tried to explain the process of steeping popcorn in something or other to infuse the unmistakable scent and taste into the ice cream, but I frankly wasn’t listening. I was lost in admiration of Martello’s ingenuity and cleverness, and wondering how soon I could arrange to take the cure again.

Sunday, October 21 Dubland Underground, 315 Alexander St. 6 p.m. | $10-$12 | 232-7550 [ Indie Rock ] You might not know it, but if you spent
much time watching MTV, you’ve heard Austin natives Quiet Company, who were featured several times on “The Real World: New Orleans” as well as other “reality” “entertainment” programs. Quiet Company has that indie-rock sound well suited to being tracked on television — sweet and upbeat, but not so loud and distracting you’ll stop paying attention to the vapid, barely dressed offerings parading in front of your eyes. If you want your indie with an edge, then opener Brick + Mortar is for you. With a high BPM and some kicking licks, B+M is far more rock than indie, and kind of sounds like a harder, faster Black Keys. — SUZAN PERO

Erin McGrane, respectively — both hail from Kansas City, but for the past 16 years the former lived in Chicago, where he performed regularly with Blue Man Group, Mar Caribe, and other respected acts. Freling (who considers himself a “hopeless guitar geek”) and McGrane now combine his clean, electric-hollow-body jazz solos and her single ukulele rhythm section with old-time harmonies and an overall delightful energy, into what the duo calls Antique Pop. This unique genre puts a fresh new spin on music from the early 20th century, reorders more modern arrangements, and generates quirky, humorous, and wholesome original tunes. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.
Epilogue Monday, October 22 Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. 9 p.m. | $5-$7 | 454-2966, bugjar.com [ ART ROCK ] The music of Epilogue has emerged
as a singularly unique blend of free jazz fusion, minimalism, and avant-garde metal. This “opening-up” of the band’s sonic aesthetic has created a live platform that lends itself to incomparable and inimitable performances. Michael Aaron Lloyd (percussion), Michael Schuler (bass), RJ Bernfield (guitar), and their wide-ranging influences, such as Miles Davis, Queen, and “chirping insects,” coalesce into a sound that is as surreal as it is absolute. — BY DAVID YOCKEL, JR.

Boogie disease [ REVIEW ] By Frank De Blase
So there I was at the Bug Jar Friday night for the first of what I hope will be many Trash Wave Fests, digging on the Clockmen as the band sunk its teeth into some dangerously fast and loud thinking-man’s punk (as I like to call it). This is one mighty trio, softened only by its own self-deprecation and charming goofiness. It was a full-on rock ’n’ roll boogie disease that was impossible to avoid, and actually fun to catch. The individual instrumentation I heard in the sound check with Slug Guts had me jazzed. The sax had some trippy delay on it, the guitar was thick and bright, and the drummer hit the snare with extreme prejudice. But it all got lost a little in the mix when the Brisbane, Australia band mounted the bandstand for real. The energy came on and remained seething with an antagonistic frenzy as the singer split his time between the stage and the floor and the rest of the band split its time between noise rock and post-punk oblivion. It was harsh yet engaging, referential but
somehow new and unpredictable. I think I need to see the band again. You should, too. All Time Low had Water Street Music Hall packed and screaming at an alltime high Saturday night — so much that you could barely hear the heavymetal thunder going on next door. All Time Low is poppy and fun with a slightly heavy edge tempered only by its mastery of melody. The funny thing is, the melody was in place during All Time Low’s accelerated numbers, where most bands rely on the pound and the beat to carry their somewhat monotone vocal line. Instead, ATL applied this to its slower, lighters-in-the-air tunes. The band was loud, energetic, and animated, as was the predominantly female singalong crowd. It also had one the best light shows I’ve ever seen.

Music Love, sex, and redemption in reverse Ahura Mazda reverbnation.com/ahuramazdamusic [ PROFILE ] By Frank De Blase
With a shiny new project springing from the loins of a fresh perspective, Rochester musician and local enigma Solomon Blaylock is poised to beguile, confound, and entertain once again. Ahura Mazda, Blaylock’s new fab synth-pop collaboration with Craig Marlowe, is a dramatic departure from The Lobster Quadrille. With that band Blaylock presented a brilliant nine-piece tug-of-war between damnation and redemption in front of a Southern Gothic backdrop. Though couched in metaphor and humor, The Lobster Quadrille set out to confront real demons
from Blaylock’s past. The humor was in place to confront his pain. The Quadrille had established itself on the scene and seemed on the brink of even bigger and better things when Blaylock and the band all decided to vacate the pulpit at the beginning of this year. “It was a conscious decision,” says Blaylock. “We’d known for the last several years that the Lobster Quadrille was winding down. I’d gotten to where I was winding down writing stuff that would work for the Quadrille.” So the band bowed out gracefully while the party was still going. Fans and friends admonished Blaylock. “There were a number of people who were like, ‘You were close to doing something,’” Blaylock says. “I just felt we weren’t going to go beyond a certain point. We weren’t
necessarily prepared to go beyond a certain point. It’s very cool that there are Rochester fixtures; bands that have been around forever. We weren’t wired for that. We weren’t a bunch of super-awesome musicians and stuff.” Besides, the demons Blaylock had addressed in the music had been dealt with. “It had been 10 years working with the Quadrille with all the religion and death stuff,” he says. “I came a long way dealing with that stuff over the course of 10 years. In that regard, in that area, I’m ready to shift focus. It was all stuff I needed to do and it was fun to do. But I’m more concerned with love and sex now. Religion and death, I’m OK with those things now.” It sounds like redemption in reverse. “But it feels like salvation now,” Blaylock says. “It feels like I had to clear those clouds away, the anger and disappointment, and just the existential angst I was dealing with. I’m happier than I’ve ever been and I’m experiencing new things. I’m in a different place and I’m excited and feel very alive, and this music is definitely borne of this.” With the Lobster Quadrille kaput, Blaylock

ventured out briefly as a solo artist, but called it quits. He found it rather terrifying. “So I reached out to Craig Marlowe,” he says. “And we started trading files back and forth. I’ve never done a fully collaborative thing like this before. It’s really exciting. It’s sort of thrilling to do your bit and give it to somebody and say, ‘Finish it.’ I had more of a strangle hold on the material in the Lobster Quadrille. A lot of the time I knew where I wanted it [a song] to be. Now I’m less concerned how it ends up being. And it’s been a pleasant surprise every time so far. It’s great.” The lyrics and themes currently residing on the band’s six-cut, self-titled EP are different
than anything Blaylock has ever done, so it’s only fitting that the music do the same and get in on the sex and love. “Craig really has a lot to do with how it’s sounding right now,” Blaylock says. “Basically I’ve been sending him songs that I’ve written on guitar and recorded a couple of vocal tracks for. Then he’ll take it and add the keyboards and the electronics to it.” Consequently there’s an organic base that still swirls in the music’s structured digital realm, slightly reminiscent of music by the proto-punk duo Suicide. And this root is set to be even more prevalent in Ahura Mazda’s live shows with the addition of drums and bass. According to Blaylock, this will present two distinct scenarios. “We’ll have a certain recorded sound,” he says, “and a live sound that will be a little more organic.” On the surface, those who want to see and hear something akin to the Lobster Quadrille won’t be getting that itch scratched with Ahura Mazda (the name is taken from the name of the chief deity of the ancient religion Zoroastrianism, and means the creator of the world, the source of light, and the embodiment of good). However, those who dig deeper to witness the soul and intent of this unique band’s output will be entertained, even if they miss some of the fire and brimstone. “We’re still developing a live act right now,” Blaylock says. “And that’s something that makes me a little nervous. I mean, it’s much less schticky. We’re hoping the music itself will be enough to move people. A lot of it is dance music. With this, it’s like, ‘Here’s the music, I hope you like it. It’s pretty much all we’ve got.’”

SHOEGAZE | Ringo Deathstarr
Ringo Deathstarr can’t be pinned down to a single influence. When you listen to the band, you’ll hear them all, ranging from The Smiths to My Bloody Valentine. The resulting sound is an amalgam that puts the Austin, Texas band right in line with the New Wave of shoegaze that’s been en vogue for the last few years. Though the band tends to be more pop-centric than its genre’s forbearers, Ringo Deathstarr has all the deafening hallmarks of its noise-pop contemporaries down. The band is touring on its recently released sophomore album, “Mauve.” Local bands Abandoned Buildings Club and Spaceweather Shakes both open the Wednesday night show.

HARD ROCK | Geoff Tate
What makes Queensryche unmistakably Queensryche is Geoff Tate’s soaring, quasi-operatic vocal flight. The music on his second solo outing, “Kings and Thieves,” is not the radical musical departure you might expect. It kind of sounds like Queensryche. Over the course of the band’s 30-plus-year history, Tate’s voice has ridden atop its progmetal blast and seems to get better with age… kind of like a fine wine, which incidentally, Tate spends his non-rock time decanting. The JJ Lang Band and Hair Nation get things started. Geoff Tate performs Friday, October 19, 8 p.m. at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. $20. themontagemusichall.com. — BY FRANK DE BLASE Chill Out Fridays Happy Hour.

POP/ROCK | Ryan Cabrera
This young, Dallas-born, pop-rock star picked up a guitar at the age of 16 and has been writing and recording music ever since. His early career was defined by a long string of nights in bars, restaurants, and clubs. Cabrera eventually landed a gig playing acoustic guitar for the band Rubix Groove, which opened for internationally known acts such as Cheap Trick and Third Eye Blind. Through this connection, as well as on the strength of some original material, Cabrera impressed a studio executive which led to the recording of his first full-length album, “Elm Street,” in 2001. Just three short years later, he was signed to Atlantic Records and released his major label debut single “On The Way Down.” Since 2004, the now 30-year-old Cabrera has sold millions of albums, appeared in several episodes of “The Hills,” and dated Ashlee Simpson. Indie/acoustic quintet, Rookie of the Year also performs.

Glass master “Elizabeth Lyons Sculpture” Through October 28 Arts Center Gallery, Nazareth College, 4245 East Ave. 389-5073, artscenter.naz.edu Tuesday-Thursday noon-5 p.m., FridaySaturday noon-8 p.m., Sunday noon-5 p.m. [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY
You could say Elizabeth Lyons is Rochester art royalty, being that she’s the daughter of artists Nathan and Joan Lyons. But Elizabeth is also a talented, award-winning, collected artist in her own right, and the owner of Elizabeth Lyons Glass as well as More Fire Glass Studios, a 4,000-square-foot glassmaking facility on Rockwood Place. The current exhibit at Nazareth College Art Center Gallery showcases Lyons’s versatility, mastery of her medium, and philosophic depth, with a retrospective of her sculptural investigations from 1992 through today. The first work viewers encounter when they enter the gallery space is “Conference,” a grouping of oblong, blown-and-mirroredglass objects standing upright upon a long, oval, wood table. Some of the objects have fancier bases while some are plain; some are perfectly smooth though distorted, while others reflect the surroundings on bubbled and cracked surfaces. The title helps to personify these bodies, set together in such proximity. Each object soars upward,
vaguely rocket-like, each with its own sealedin, secret trajectory or motivations, while reflecting and distorting the reality of the others around it. In a provided statement, Lyons describes “Conference” as a response to the anger she felt when the United States attacked Iraq in 2003, and declared “a war sold to us using fear tactics, neatly packaged for our consumption with phrases like ‘Shock and Awe,’ and ‘Operation Iraqi Freedom’ ... sexy and shiny and so far removed from reality.” The other meaning of the title alludes to the bestowal upon us — or conferring — of empty, trophy-like things, which bear both far greater significance and far different implications than we are led to believe. “Ritual Vessels” is a series of nine handblown, bulbous glass works with symbolic cast bronze and electroform caps. “The powerful traditions that integrate myth and magic were sources of inspiration for this earlier work,” Lyons says in a provided statement. Each form is vaguely heartshaped, but some allude to other organs, with varying hues and surface textures and with sculpted tops that echo each vessel’s title and purpose. “Home” has a miniature log cabin crowning the mountainous surface, “Moon” is dark and dusty and capped with stilts holding up a crescent-shaped shelter. The works speak of timeless markers of human life, which, though old to humanity, bear a sense of epic wonder and significance for each new experiencer. Appropriately,
“Memory” is etched all over with tiny marks, the cap covered in a bezel-set collection of personal detritus. A low table holds six works from Lyons’s
“Built on Their Bones” series, each a redwood house frame showcasing objects such as tiny skeletal or organ systems, ladders, and shells, caught in blocks of clear glass. The bits are meant to recall individuals and civilizations that came before us, say Lyons, upon whose remains we have built our lives. The cases evoke museum displays or simple reliquaries, where remnants of what has passed are denied entropy, caught forever under the vaguely perceiving scrutiny of those who follow. Hanging on one gallery wall is a strip of wood panel to which six elegant works that make up “Tools for Earth” are anchored, each made of found objects, sculpted and blown glass, wood, steel, and rubber. Though all are rendered virtually useless for actual toil by the fragility of their materials, the grouping ranges from the nearly practical “Shovel with Roots” to the curious “Shovel for Air” and still curiouser “Love Shovel,” which is little more than an oversized frosted glass heart at the end of a handle. Another wall bears an array of assorted glass shovel-heads anchored to various smooth, snaking tree branches, which further explore the grace and utility of form and the combination of disparate, sturdy and fragile materials of glass, wood, and steel. Some of the most arresting works in the show are three in number, where the artist
combines cast-resin human arms with manmade tools and weapons we have constructed as extensions of our physical capacity in the world. At once commenting on the destruction implicit in our creations, “Arm Bow” features an arc of wood held taut by a strained-straight double-fisted arm that has a nearly palpable tension-tremor caught within the form. In “Rope Arm” and “Calipers,” too, the forms of the familiar tools give way to forearms and our highly evolved hands. Further back in to the space, a circle of three “Black Birds” perch in a pedestal case, the dark blown glass winged bodies like tightly-gathered shrouds over folded hands, and cast bronze heads reptilian and vigilant. Nearby, “Climbing on Sticks” is a study in sturdy-looking fragility, a work of sand-cast glass branch steps strung on copper and steel cords, reminiscent of a precarious conveyance up to a tree house. In the very rear, dim alcove of the gallery, one of Lyons’s more recent works, “Natural Form Chandelier” hangs, casting light though a sphere of shimmering, silvery, masterfully formed floral elements, including bursting blooms, twisting spears, and swollen buds. This work is an homage to German artist and teacher Karl Blossfeldt, who is known for his close-up photography of plants and other living creatures, which have inspired and instructed Lyons’s grasp of form for decades.

THE FINISH LINE [ INTRODUCTION ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
My hope is that, as you read this year’s Best of Rochester, you’ll envision Cha-Cha DiGregorio waving a checkered flag. Because it really has been quite a race. Once again we broke our previous voting records in both the primary and final ballots for the Readers Poll, and some of the contests came down to the slimmest of margins. Thank you to the thousands of readers who voted in this year’s Best of Rochester Poll. As we get more and more votes, we’re finding that the survey is becoming more and more representative. Does that mean that we agree with all the choices? Nope. And we bet you won’t either. Feel free to cruise on over to rochestercitynewspaper. com and give us your feedback about what should have won. We really do take that input seriously when working on the next year’s ballot. In addition to the Readers Poll, you’ll also find a collection of our readers’ funnier answers — some of them were so filthy we could not commit them to print — as well as our annual Critics’ Picks. This year Dayna Papaleo, Willie Clark, Frank De Blase, Michael Lasser, Rebecca Rafferty, Casey Carlsen, and Lillian Dickerson sound off on some of the people, places, and things that make Rochester a cool place to live and work. If you have something we should consider writing up for next year’s picks, shoot us an e-mail at email@example.com.

Best Hot Beef Injection
The Sunday Hot Dog Special at Cure Open since June at the Public Market, Cure (50 Public Market, 563-7941, curebar.net) is winning a place in the hearts of hungry carnivores with its housemade sausages, such as chorizo, a link that marries pheasant and black truffle, and a boudin blanc so lush and pillowy that I sometimes can’t decide whether to eat it or hug it. But it’s not all prized fungi and French technique; this is Rochester, after all, and Cure honors its workingclass roots with an ever-changing Sunday hot-dog special ($9). A recent preparation took a housemade beef frank and topped it with candied bacon, pickled cabbage, and horseradish mustard, then plated it with an heirloom tomato salad. Past adornments have included confit onions and garlic scape relish, as well as themes like Italian and a nod to Rochester, which, if my blissed-out memory serves me correctly, embellished the tasty dog with fresh chopped onions and the warm-spiceand-ground-beef topping we call hot sauce ’round these parts.

Best Meal in Your Mitts The Pittsburgh at Harry G’s New York Deli & Café
Though you’ve perhaps tried one of its many incarnations, you may not know about the origin of the Pittsburgh sandwich, essentially a meal between two pieces of bread. First concocted as a convenience to truckers by
an Iron City chain called Primanti Brothers, the beef-based Pittsburgh typically crams the coleslaw and the French fries right into the sandwich rather than serving them on the side. And here in Rochester, Harry G’s New York Deli & Café (678 South Avenue, 256-1324, harrygsdeli.com) might be the ones setting the Pittsburgh standard, its mega-popular build consisting of chopped steak, melted provolone, spicy shoestring fries, coleslaw, tomato, mayonnaise, and oil. And at $7.99 for a whole 12” sub (or $4.49 for a half ), you’ll hopefully forgive the hyperbole when I say that it might actually have everything you could possibly want in a sandwich: juicy meat, gooey cheese, sassy potatoes, tangy cabbage, umami-rich tomato, and just the right amount of good mayo. And since the sides are technically part of the sandwich, you should feel no qualms about getting MORE sides, like Harry G’s hearty matzo-ball soup or a potato knish, and maybe dessert. Yinz have earned it! (DP)
Best Beer Upgrade Beer Cocktails at TRATA
Even in light of the 21st-century craftcocktail movement, the concept of drinks made by mixing beer with spirits or juices is nothing new. But with the exception of libations like the spicy Michelada, or the champagne-and-stout Black Velvet, a lot of beer cocktails — especially the ones that feature shot glasses dropped into pint glasses — seem designed simply to get the imbiber f**ked up in a more expeditious

manner. But the imaginative beer cocktail list at TRATA (145 Culver Road, 270-5460, tratarochester.com) gilds the humble hop by taking the flavors in its brew-based beverages as seriously as it does the liquor-centric mixed drinks. The vibrant Lambic Bellini ($5.50), for instance, riffs on the Proseccobased standard by combining Lindemans Pêche with peach purée and raspberry, while the Chocolate Cherrybomb ($6) blends Buffalo’s own McKenzie’s black cherry cider with Young’s double chocolate stout. And hopefully next year’s rumored pig shortage won’t hinder availability of the hearty Corporal’s Breakfast ($9.50), made from Wolaver’s oatmeal stout, Bulleit bourbon, and bacon. Yeah, there’s a boilermaker on the list, a pairing of Guinness and Finger Lakes Distilling’s White Pike whiskey, but if you’re gonna do it, you may as well do it up. (DP)
Best Tantalizing Taste Mystery
Dragon Sauce at Scotland Yard Pub I’ve always seen myself as a buffalo-sauce kind of guy. The spice, the heat, the flavor — nothing else really comes close to it
(especially barbecue sauce; get that stuff out of my face). And that’s how I always assumed it would be. No matter where I eat, if there is buffalo-flavored item on the menu, that’s probably going to be what I order. That was before I came face to face with the fiery-sweet mouth orgasm that is the Dragon Wings at Scotland Yard Pub (187 St. Paul St., 730-5030, scotlandyardpub.com). I’ve been going to Scotland Yard nearly once a week since January for trivia, and every week it came down to exactly what awesome way I wanted to eat the restaurant’s Dragon Sauce. Should I get it on wings? On pizza? Just chug a whole bottle of it? Swim in a lake of it? All of the above, please. The worst part is that I can’t figure out what is in the secret sauce. It’s part Asian influenced, that’s for sure, and there may be a hint of garlic in there, but one thing is for sure, nearly everybody that I’ve had try the sauce loves it, and the rest aren’t my friends anymore. And I haven’t ordered anything buffalo flavored at Scotland Yard since. (WC)

Local products abound; Red Bird stocks yummy stuff from places like the Ravioli Shop, Coffee Connection, Baker Street Bakery, and Arbor Hill Winery, but the store’s star might be its line of Candy Nation Plus housemade peanut butters ($2.50-$3.50). I love candy. There, I said it. I’m a relatively Red Bird mills the nuts on-site, then blends sophisticated eater with a pair of jobs that them with different ingredients to create expose me to some of the best food this unique spreads.

Best Local Scandal You’ve Never Heard About Audrey Munson
In 1920, lyricist Ballard MacDonald wrote a song for Fanny Brice about “Rosie, the queen of the models” who posed “with or without her clothes.” He could have been remembering Audrey Munson, the first woman to appear completely nude on film. Born in Rochester in 1891, Munson moved to New York where a photographer spotted her at the age of 15. Sculptors soon began to use her as their model for architectural statuary, very popular at the time. Artists and the public liked portrayals of naked women, so long as they had allegorical names. Munson starred in four silent movies, but only a single print — for “Purity” — has survived. By the end of the decade, a married suitor had murdered his wife to free himself to marry her, but the negative publicity ended her career. In 1920, she and her mother moved back to Mexico, NY, east of Oswego. When she attempted suicide, a judge ordered her committed to a psychiatric facility where she remained for 65 years. She died in 1996 at the age of 104. Munson posed for some of the most important sculptors of her time, including Daniel Chester French, best known for the seated Abraham Lincoln at the Lincoln Memorial; Alexander Stirling Calder, whose George Washington as President adorns the Washington Square Arch in Lower Manhattan; and Robert Ingersoll Aiken, best known for the West Pediment of the Supreme Court Building. Although some Munson statues have been destroyed, others still stand in all their unadorned glory in the parks and above the streets of New York — the Manhattan Municipal Building, the U.S.S. Maine memorial in Central Park, and the Pulitzer Fountain in Grand Army Plaza. Though she came to an unhappy end, visitors to Manhattan can still see Audrey Munson in all her allegorical — and physical — extravagance. (ML)

Best Open Jam Roc City Pro Am Jam

CITY Critics’ Picks
You might think that The Roc City Pro Am Jam is just for the musicians, giving them the opportunity to stretch their legs and tread terrain that’s different. But the resulting hybrid that gets thrown together is a thrill for music fans as well, as the curious onlookers and on-listeners get a chance to see a band put together for the first — and often, the last — time using its musical wits to figure out how to proceed outside of its members’ comfort zones and style. This is truly a jam, as the host band often sets the tone before inviting guests up on stage to sit in. Nobody is in charge and the music dictates its own outcome. You’ll likely see a jazzy keyboardist, a funky drummer, and an electrifying guitarist as easily as you’ll see a cat with a French horn or a dude pull off a tap-dance solo. This thing is gaining momentum, too, as more and more people are coming out of hibernation (including yours truly) to get down and participate. Local instrument manufacturers have gotten on board, displaying their wares and encouraging onstage test drives and the powers that run the whole affair have been recording beautiful, in-the-moment mayhem. The Roc City Pro Am Jam takes place every-other Tuesday and rotates between Lovin’ Cup, Abilene, and Skylark. Come early, stay late. (FD)

Best Pop-Up Dance Troupe One Dance Company
During the Rochester International Jazz Festival this past summer, you might have noticed the herd of wild animals that took over the streets and green spaces outside of Rochester Contemporary Art Center. Actually, the creatures were dancers involved in One Dance Company, a Rochester and Minnesotabased dance company which has been putting on marvelous pop-up shows locally for the past year. For “Scene & Herd,” the dancers were transformed through simple costuming and makeup into various woodland creatures, and accompanied by local gypsy-camp-esque musical group, The Pickpockets, they danced and embodied their respective creatures from within the art center out into a busy East Avenue. Led locally by director and cofounder Erika Ruegemer, the small company often teams up with collaborative art space The Yards at the Public Market and a host of participating artists to present such moving,
Rochester is teeming with talent, as evidenced by the various artists, musicians, and actors that call this area home. Another artistic discipline is on the rise in your backyard, and you might not even know about it: the Rochester Circus Arts Collective. Also known as ROC Cirque, the group aims to foster circus arts in the greater Rochester area and provide a space in which artists can practice, share, and learn from one another. In addition to circus artists, the space will supply a jam area for One Dance Company performed “Scene & Herd” at Rochester Contemporary Art the Rochester DJ Center during the 2012 Rochester International Jazz Festival. file PHOTO Collective, allowing 36 City BEST OF ROCHESTER 2012

Best Use of a Found Space The Yards
Now celebrating its first anniversary, collaborative art space The Yards is the brainchild of artists Sarah C. Rutherford and Lea Rizzo, who are also members of the art collective, The Sweet Meat Co. The space above Flour City Bread Co. in the Public Market was raw when they found it, and was the site of the collective’s second group installation, “Welcome to Sweetsville,” which just hinted at how the group was capable of challenging the way we think about unused spaces and cast-off materials. In the past year, The Yards has hosted art exhibitions, dance performances, poetry readings, film screenings, ice-cream socials, private parties, and the Gezellig dinner series, which incorporates visual art, food, and a performance. In addition, The Yards was the main hub of activity for this summer’s “Wall/Therapy” mural project, which centered at the Market. Rutherford, Rizzo, and their family of artistic collaborators and supporters are proving what wonderful potential a small space and a lot of heart can offer.

Best Therapeutic Dance Kinections
Tucked away in a small dance studio next to Writers & Books on University Avenue is Kinections, a center for dance therapy run by Dr. Danielle Fraenkel, an internationally recognized expert in what is still a relatively new field. During her workshops, students are guided through using movement and dance as the form in which to access and express emotional truths. The purpose is for them to then go on and use that kinesthetic self-knowledge for personal growth and advancement, expanding their movement repertoires and pushing past perceived boundaries. The American Dance Therapy Association defines dance/movement therapy as “the psychotherapeutic use of movement as a process that furthers the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual.” Interestingly, dance therapy was first used in the United States during the 1940’s by psychiatric hospitals attempting to provide unreachable patients with alternate means of communication and expression. More recently, it has shown
particular success as a therapy in working with victims of sexual and other forms of abuse, as well as with patients with eating disorders. In Fraenkel’s workshops, people from all walks of life gather simply to move, feel, and learn how to more fully inhabit their bodies. They may be given exercises in which they “become” another material — clay or wire, for instance — in order to explore how physical boundaries can be malleable or fixed. Music, discussion, individual and group work are all part of a class at Kinections. Being a dancer is not a prerequisite. Desired outcomes for students include better management of stress, building confidence, improving relationships, succeeding in interviews and presentations, and breaking through blocks. Fraenkel is a New York State licensed creative arts therapist and licensed mental health counselor. She holds an M.A. in dance movement therapy, The high-flying dance company Bandaloop kicked off the and a second M.A. and a Ph.D. with inaugural Rochester Fringe Festival with pure spectacle. a specialization in counseling from the PHOTO by matt deturck University of Rochester.

Best New Festival Rochester Fringe Festival
Putting on a successful festival requires a lot of work, and after being spoiled for many years by the widely successful Rochester International Jazz Festival, Rochester as a city can forget sometimes just how hard it is to start a new one and have it get off the ground running. There’s the basic logistical issues, the funding, selecting acts to come and groups to perform, and then of course, getting people out to enjoy what the festival has to offer. So it’s a huge accomplishment that the first year of the Rochester Fringe Festival — which took over downtown Rochester in mid-September — was, by and large, very successful, especially for a brand new festival that focuses on what’s outside the norm. And I mean that in a good way.

CITY Critics’ Picks NIGHTLIFE
Best Brainy Alternative to a Night at the Bars Poetry & Pie Night
Usually when I think of poetry, images of a scholastic-looking individual — donning glasses, a scarf, perhaps smoking a pipe — scribbling furiously at an old desk by candlelight come to mind. Something I have never associated with poetry is pie. Yet, the curators of Poetry & Pie night, Rachel McKibbens and Jacob Rakovan, seem to believe this is a perfectly natural pairing. And why should anyone disagree? Each month a Poetry & Pie Night occurs at which “poetry, prose, pies, pews, and a pulpit come together for a delicious literary buffet.” Sounds simply tantalizing. Meeting locations are somewhat of a mystery, and are never published in print. One could say this romantic literary club is Rochester’s own version of “Dead Poet’s Society.” If you’re inclined toward the written arts (or even the culinary), meetings are usually held at 8 p.m. You can email poetryandpienight@gmail. com to learn the secret location.

SPECIAL EVENT | RIT’s Brick City Homecoming
As RIT celebrates its Brick City Homecoming & Family Weekend, the college and the greater city of Rochester communities will benefit from a host of exciting activities. Actor Alec Baldwin (pictured) will be featured as the Horton Distinguished Speaker this year, and will speak at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 20, in the Gordon Field House and Activities Center. While giving inside information about his career as an actor and his philanthropic work, Baldwin will surely deliver some of his dry wit, as exemplified through characters such as Jack Donaghy on NBC’s “30 Rock.” Tickets cost $10 for RIT students, $15 for RIT faculty/staff/alumni/parents/guests, and $25 for the general public. To register, visit rit.edu/brickcity. Registrants for The Presidents’ Ball, another activity for the weekend, will have the opportunity to talk with RIT President Bill Destler over a three-course meal.

Theater it comes to what’s happening to jobs in this country. But for the most part, “Working” keeps things on the surface. Girls sing about how they always dreamed of being a supermarket check-out girl on Treasure Island (really?), a custodial staff croons about how their children will have better lives. The songs are pleasant contemporary musical-theater fare, but there are times where the show gets too sentimental, even bordering on cheesy.

Singing for their supper “Working, a Musical” Through October 28 JCC CenterStage, 1200 Edgewood Ave. $18-$26 | 461-2000, jccrochester.org [ REVIEW ] BY ERIC REZSNYAK
With the economy still struggling and a national unemployment rate of nearly 8 percent, work is on the mind of every politician — and voter. So the timing is smart for a revival of “Working,” a musical that first debuted in the 1970’s, based on the book “Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do” by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and oral historian Studs Terkel. “Working, A Musical” takes stories from various members of the United States labor force — supermarket checkout girl, iron worker, mason, UPS delivery guy — and sets them to song. Some of the numbers in the show currently at the JCC, directed
by David Runzo, come from the original Broadway adaptation by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso. Others were introduced during various revisions of the show, including a recent one by Lin-Manuel Miranda of “In the Heights” fame. “Working” features both spokenword oral histories and song-and-dance numbers. The musical pieces are energetic and entertaining, but the monologues give the show some substance, and occasionally make some interesting points about the changing nature of our country’s labor force. For instance, the project-manager character mentions the difference in her company between “lifers” — people 20 years her senior — who expect to stay at their place of employment until retirement, and people in her own generation, who take a job for the experience, but always planned to move on to something bigger and better. Halfway into the show I found myself craving more of that kind of material — after all, there’s plenty to discuss when
performers makes the most of the material. Jodi Beckwith, Sammi Cohen, Laura Marron, Matt Moyne, Ralph Meranto, David Munnell, Jonathan Ntheketha, and Mary Tiballi play multiple roles, some appearing on stage more often than others. All do a good job with both the acting and singing, but it is the women who particularly impress. The strongest numbers in the show belong to them, including the excellent “Just a Housewife,” the waitress tour-de-force “It’s an Art,” and the smart duet between the babysitter and the home-health aide. The group numbers that open and close both halves of the show are also well executed — this ensemble makes for some lovely harmonies — and it’s tough to deny the allure of that rootin’tootin’ trucker song. The show overall is entertaining, and the performance level is high. Just know that the content for the most part is fairly light. However, my companion pointed out that “Working” does offer something unusual. It’s very much is a celebration of the American worker, leaning heavily toward the blue-collar side of the spectrum. It’s not often that stonemasons or truckers or luggage-factory workers get to have their stories told on stage. One of the themes of the show is that everyone should be able to point to something and take pride in saying, “Hey, I made/did that!” On a related note, the show closes with the cast and crew telling the audience what they do for their day jobs. Some are teachers, some are students, some are development directors, one is the artistic director of the JCC CenterStage. It’s a reminder that our bountiful local theater scene draws performers from a variety of backgrounds, and that just because your day job might be one thing, you can still live out your dreams after you punch the clock.

RECREATION | Seasonal Walking Tours
Now that we’re into mid-fall, it’s a great time to get outside and admire nature’s transition into the next season. To get a prime view of the multicolored leaves covering — or abandoning — our local trees, take advantage of The Friends of Mt. Hope Cemetery’s “Fall Foliage Tour” on Saturday, October 20, at noon. Visitors will receive a tour of the cemetery focused around the variety of trees on its grounds. The meeting location will be at North Gatehouse, opposite Robinson Drive. Admission is $5, or free for members of the Friends of Mt. Hope Cemetery. Looking for something a bit more spooky? Feel the spirits of the night ignite at the “Grand Torch Light Tours” on Saturday, October 20, and Tuesday, October 23, starting at 6 p.m. A special tour path will be lit by torches, allowing you to learn about some of the cemetery’s most interesting residents in the more evocative dark. The meeting location will be at the North Entrance Gatehouse, opposite Robinson Drive. Tickets are $7 in advance or $10 the day of the event; note, these tours are very popular and get packed quickly. For more information on FOMH tours call 461-3494 or visit fomh.org. If the idea of being out after dark sounds hauntingly thrilling, Genesee Country Village and Museum’s “Spirits of the Past” may be right up your alley. On Fridays, October 19 and 26, and Saturdays, October 20 and 27, theatrical tours highlighting 19th century horror stories will run 6-9:30 p.m. While wandering through the historic setting of the Genesee Country Village (1410 Flint Hill Road, Mumford) witness scenes from Edgar Allan Poe, the creators of “Sweeney Todd,” and other spooky tales. Tours depart every 10 minutes. Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 members. For reservations (required) call 538-6822, and visit gcv.org for more info. — BY LILLIAN DICKERSON

THEATER | New shows
Several new shows open this weekend in local theaters. From Friday, October 19, through Sunday, October 28, Blackfriars Theatre will host the world premiere of the original musical “Melanie and the Record Man.” While detailing the true story of the making of a folk-rock icon during the Woodstock era, the musical simultaneously reveals the romance growing between Melanie Safka, a shy girl from Queens, and successful record producer Peter Schekeryk. The show was written with and will feature Safka herself. Tickets are $45 and can be purchased online at bftix.org. Blackfriars is located at 795 E. Main St. For more information call 454-1260 or check the website. Worlds collide when psychologist Sigmund Freud and author C. S. Lewis meet one evening in London to discuss God, love, sex, music, and the meaning of life. That’s the concept behind “Freud’s Last Session,” (pictured) a historical fiction currently playing on the Geva Theatre Nextstage (75 Woodbury Blvd) through Sunday, November 11. The intellectual battle that ensues should make for a humorous, yet thoughtprovoking evening. Tickets range from $39 to $49. For details on performance schedules, visit gevatheatre.org.

History, fiction, and the movies [ REVIEW ] By George Grella
“Argo” (R), directed by Ben Affleck Now playing
The Iranian hostage crisis of 1979-1981, which some readers may remember, did more than inflation, gasoline prices, or Ronald Reagan to sink Jimmy Carter’s presidency. Every night on ABC TV Ted Koppel would solemnly intone the number of days the captured diplomats remained in the hands of the revolutionaries. The incident also spawned Reagan’s infamous swap of arms with Iranian terrorists, the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism in the Middle East, and led in a

circuitous path to the invasion of Iraq, a nation the Republican administration had previously supported in its war with Iran. As Ben Affleck’s new film “Argo” demonstrates, one of the stories behind the headlines suggests a moment of triumph in the midst of that crisis. Based on previously classified information, the movie tells the remarkable true story of the rescue of six American diplomats who had escaped the shocking attack on the embassy and taken refuge in the home of the Canadian ambassador. Affleck plays Tony Mendez, a CIA agent who specializes in the extraction of endangered personnel from difficult situations in foreign lands. When nobody in the agency can devise anything resembling a possible rescue, he suggests an ingenious plan: that he pose as the Canadian producer of a sciencefiction movie to be partially shot in Iran. He proposes to create false identities for the six diplomats as members of the film crew — a location scout, a screenwriter, a cameraman, a director, etc.

He enlists John Chambers (John Goodman), a Hollywood makeup artist specializing in monsters who has worked on disguises with him in the past, and Lester Siegel (Alan Arkin), a veteran producer; the trio sets about the process of pretending to make a picture titled “Argo.” Siegel insists, as he says, that if he is going to make a fake movie, it’s going to be a fake hit, so they arrange publicity, the usual stories in the showbiz papers, a reading of the script in full costume for the press, posters, business cards, and so on. The whole charade provides back story and context for deceiving the wary, bloodthirsty Iranian authorities. The central story of the intricate rescue mission provides some fascinating insight into the methods of the CIA, which for a change looks more like the good guys than usual. Inside that story, the picture shows another in glimpses of the life of the six hidden diplomats, living an odd existence, enjoying good food and drink, courtesy of the Canadian ambassador, but also frightened of the possibility of discovery, capture, and in the honored Middle Eastern fashion, beheading. While Tony Mendez works feverishly on the cover story, false identities, forging passports and visas, and instructing the six on their new names, backgrounds, professions, and so on, the film also mixes a good deal of humor in its serious situation. Alan Arkin’s terrific performance as the irascible, cynical,

Meta fabrication “Seven Psychopaths” (R), written and directed by Martin McDonagh Now playingE

self-mocking Lester Siegel accounts for most of the fun, with some assistance from the equally terrific John Goodman; their acting contrasts sharply with Ben Affleck’s understated intensity. From its beginning “Argo” signals its participation in the peculiar genre of movies about making movies, showing the history of modern Iran — including the sinister work of the CIA in destabilizing a democratically elected leader and installing the corrupt and tyrannical Shah — in a wonderful mixture of storyboards, historical newsreel footage, contemporary television coverage, and fictional film. Its satirical portrait of Hollywood thus meshes nicely with its imaginative technique. In addition to its deft handling of a number of subjects, “Argo” accomplishes something really special. Although we know how it all turns out, the movie still generates as much suspense as any fictional thriller, showing a good deal of the tension and excitement of an important moment in contemporary history. It may even instruct a new generation in some of the realities of American policy in the Middle East and some of the reasons for the antipathy of its people to this country. Aside from emphasizing the development of Ben Affleck’s career from a handsome, virile, and, frankly, mediocre actor to a competent performer and a really good director, “Argo” demonstrates the truth of Mark Twain’s pronouncement that life is stranger than fiction, because life has no obligation to be probable.
If Quentin Tarantino had decided to become a used-car salesman, or maybe a dentist, someone else would have made “Pulp Fiction” by now. OK; if not exactly “Pulp Fiction,” then at least a funny, twisty, and operatically violent flick about chatty antiheroes going about their bad-guy business while relatively worse guys try to kill them. But reality being what it is, Tarantino’s name is invariably invoked both when someone mangles the blueprint (that’s you, “Boondock Saints”) and when someone gets it right. In the case of Irish writer-director Martin McDonagh’s ridiculously entertaining “Seven Psychopaths,” the latter involves tweaking the expected tropes with his stage-hewn creative style, then commenting on those clichés even as the film winks at the fact that it’s embracing them wholeheartedly. “Seven Psychopaths” is actually McDonagh’s second such movie to bring QT to mind; the first, his Oscarnominated 2008 filmmaking debut “In Bruges,” hid out in Belgium with a
couple of introspective hit men whose thoughts actually felt a bit more deep what you typically encounter in these gabby gangster pictures. McDonagh continues his ruminative streak with “Seven Psychopaths,” which reteams him with “In Bruges” star Colin Farrell as, well, an Irish screenwriter named Marty who is in Los Angeles working on a script called “Seven Psychopaths.” He has the title, anyway, when his manic actor friend Billy (Sam Rockwell) offers to help him, even though it might divert Billy’s attention from the lucrative dognapping business he operates with his cravat-rocking pal Hans (national treasure Christopher Walken). The plot comes together when it’s revealed that the latest victim of Hans and Billy’s moneymaking scheme is Charlie (Woody Harrelson), a cruel crime boss desperate for the return of his adorable Shih Tzu. “Seven Psychopaths” — give or take, by my count — unfolds as Billy, Hans, and now Marty attempt to stay a step ahead of Charlie and his thugs (including dependable ringers like Kevin Corrigan and Zeljko Ivanek), while Billy regales his reluctant writing partner with tales of murderous nutjobs that might be good for their script. Oh, and did I mention that there’s also a masked serial killer known as the Jack of Diamonds terrorizing the LA underworld? That’s Michael Stuhlbarg and the vastly improved Michael Pitt from “Boardwalk Empire” in an early, tone-setting cameo. McDonagh even brings Billy’s stories to visual life for us with a secondary cast that showcases Harry Dean Stanton as a silent, vengeful Quaker, and he more than rises to the challenge of keeping the script’s myriad threads from getting tangled. Certainly more so than its kindred spirit “Hot Fuzz,” “Seven Psychopaths” is meta-aware of the beats it’s expected to hit — the desert interlude, the shootout — with the bloody,
clever script going so far as to acknowledge that it will soon be doing so. Which is great, except when it comes to the genre’s notoriously appalling treatment of the fairer sex. “Your women characters are awful,” Hans tells Marty, an observation echoed by this film’s blatant mishandling of Abbie Cornish, Gabourey Sidibe, and Olga Kurylenko. Yes, it’s a thing. But does it really have to be? And this just in: Farrell (now with foxily graying temples) makes an excellent straight man. He generously cedes his scenes to whatever master character actor shares the shot with him, reacting to the mayhem with those impossibly expressive eyebrows and very often a glug of alcohol. (Billy: “This is my writer friend.” Hans: “Yes, I can smell the booze.”) Rockwell breaks no new ground; he’s pretty much cornered the market on motormouthed losers with a heart of gold. But no one’s doing it better, and Billy’s devotion — to his friends, to his art — gives him necessary layers, despite the fact that he’s arguably the film’s biggest psychopath. Even more than Tom Waits, here playing a serial-killer killer clutching a fluffy white bunny. Sure, it all might sound preciously contrived, and in the hands of lesser artisans “Seven Psychopaths” would probably be quite trying. But the results are wickedly funny and wildly violent, with moments of true and beautiful pathos. And hopefully someone involved with this film will see fit to pony up for Christopher Walken’s Oscar campaign. It’s his best performance in ages, taking all those famously Walkeny quirks and harnessing them into a turn that incorporates guileless charm and subtle menace with gut-busting line deliveries. Offered a drink, Hans politely declines. “I take peyote,” he says. Because you just can’t have a desert scene without it. Photo courtesy Photofest

Saturday, Oct. 20, 8 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 21, 2 p.m. Disenchanted with her life, Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) picks up and disappears, only to find herself stuck in a dead end at the Bates Motel. Tracing her footsteps, her sister Lila and detective Milton Arbogast are engulfed by a mystery more insidious than they ever expected. Hitchcock famously claimed that he was “playing the audience like a piano” with this rule-breaking masterpiece of realistic horror. (Alfred Hitchcock, US 1960, 109 min.)

Wednesday, Oct. 24, 8 p.m.; Sunday, Oct. 28, 2 p.m. Peter Sellers, in his last great role, stars as a simple gardener who knows nothing of the world save what he’s seen on television. Through a series of misunderstandings, he’s mistaken for a brilliant political oracle and soon has the president’s ear. This sharp, deadpan satire features beautifully nuanced performances from Sellers and Oscar®-winner Melvyn Douglas. (Hal Ashby, US 1979, 130 min.)

Peaceful Retreat on Pinnacle Hill 207 Crosman Terrace Crosman Terrace is one of the many reminders in Rochester of our city’s “Flower City” heritage. The name is a legacy of the Crosman Seed Company, established around 1840 by Charles F. Crosman, and still going strong today from its headquarters in East Rochester. The street was subdivided around the turn of the 20th century as the Crosmans—like other nursery owners in the burgeoning city—realized their nursery grounds were valuable real estate ripe for subdivision. The Crosman company moved to the suburbs and streets like Crosman Terrace, Laburnum Crescent, and Rosedale Street were born.
staircase and convenient coat closet. The vestibule opens to the kitchen, at the back of the house, and the living room, at the front, featuring a bank of windows and working fireplace. A bright sunroom off the living room is a perfect den or office. Through a wide doorway from the living room, the dining room is an Arts & Crafts showpiece that perfectly captures the essence of this 1920s style. The eat-in kitchen has ample cabinets and overlooks the beautifully landscaped and tranquil backyard. Upstairs are three bedrooms and one full bathroom; a half-bath has been cunningly added adjacent to the kitchen.
Heading south on Crosman Terrace, you will see an impressive variety of architectural styles, reflecting the eclectic architectural fashions of the early 20th century. Handsome Prairie-Style American Foursquares share the streetscape with elegant Tudor Revivals and Colonial Revivals; there are even a few examples of the rarer Mediterranean Revival style to be seen.
A spacious, mostly finished basement could be a playroom, office, exercise room or family room; another section is unfinished and has the washer, dryer, and ample storage. There is also a generous cedar closet in the basement.
One generous block south of bustling Monroe Avenue, Crosman Terrace begins to rise and curve along the side of Pinnacle Hill. Here you will find 207 Crosman Terrace, a fine example of the solid quality and fine architectural character that make houses of the 1920s enduringly popular and practical. Well-maintained features like leaded glass, hardwood floors, and woodwork abound. The front vestibule has an original tiled floor in perfect condition. Through leaded glass doors is the front hall, with a Craftsman-style

Fun [ news of the weird ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD Modern Warfare: China, Japan and Taiwan each claim ownership of the uninhabited South China Sea islands of Senkaku or Diaoyu, and the controversy heightened in September when Japan announced that it had formally “purchased” the islands from a private company that reputedly owned them. China countered by “launching” its first-ever aircraft carrier (a vessel junked in 1998 by Ukraine), which it hopes will intimidate its neighbors even though it is useless to planes. Days later, patrol boats from Taiwan and Japan had a confrontation near the islands -- drenching each other in a military-grade squirt-gun fight. (Japan won.)
Compelling Explanations — A 14-year-old boy was hospitalized
in critical condition in Churchill, Pa., in August after allegedly swiping a Jeep Grand Cherokee and leading the owner’s boyfriend on a brief high-speed chase before rolling the Cherokee over on Interstate 376. The boy’s mother, according to WTAE-TV, blamed the Cherokee’s owner: A vehicle with the keys in it, she said, “was an opportunity that, in a 14-year-old’s eyes, was ... the perfect moment.” Also, she said, the boyfriend “had no right to chase my son.” The boy “could have just (wanted) a joyride down the street. Maybe he (merely) wanted to go farther than he felt like walking.” — Irresistible: (1) David Thompson, 27, was arrested in August and charged with stealing a bag of marijuana from the Charleroi (Pa.) Regional police station. While talking to an officer about an unrelated case, Thompson noticed an evidence bag on a counter and swiped it. Caught
moments later, Thompson profusely apologized, telling the officer, “I just couldn’t help myself. That bud smelled so good.” (2) Aaron Morris was charged in August with battery in North Lauderdale, Fla., for groping the buttocks of a woman at a Walmart. According to the arresting officer, Morris explained, “Her booty looked so good, I just couldn’t resist touching it.”
First-World Problems: (1) Ohio deathrow inmate Ronald Post, 53, asked a federal court in September to cancel his January date with destiny on the grounds that, despite almost 30 years of prison food, he’s still too fat to execute. At 480 pounds, “vein access” and other issues would cause his lethal injection to be “torturous.” (2) British murderer-sadist Graham Fisher, 39, is locked up in a high-security hospital in Berkshire, England, but he, too, has been eating well (at about 325 pounds). In August, he was approved for gastric-band surgery paid for by Britain’s National Health Service at an estimated cost, including a private room for post-op recuperation, of about $25,000).
The Litigious Society
The City Council of Jersey City, N.J., voted in September to settle a lawsuit filed by Joshua Lopez, who had driven his car directly at a police officer during a 2009 traffic stop, trapping the officer against his own squad car, and thus forcing the officer to fire at him. Lopez suffered only an injured hand, but the city has now agreed to give him $26,500 out of fear of “litigation risk.”
[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 59 ]
[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): There are opportunities galore, but if you take on too many invites, you’ll have trouble deciding which of the potential romantic candidates you meet is best suited to you. Pick and choose carefully to avoid ending up with someone portraying what you want instead of who they are. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your wish is your command when it comes to love and commitment. Show confidence and embrace the person and the relationship you want with promises for a future together. Your intense, loyal and dedicated approach to love
will win the heart of someone special. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be careful what you wish for. Not everyone will be honest. Don’t make promises you don’t intend to keep or ask for favors unless you are prepared to give something back in return. There will be a fine line between friendship and an intimate connection. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Love the one you are with. Showing your true feelings and making plans for two should be your goal. If you haven’t met that special person, get out to unusual events that will attract people who share your
interests, and you will hook up with someone special. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may want to slow down and get to know the people you meet this week before making any promises. Not everyone will share your intimate likes and dislikes. A problem will develop if you try to start one relationship before ending another. Get your priorities straight. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put your heart on the line. If you meet someone of interest, suggest participating in something you enjoy doing to find out if you share common ground. Communication will be the biggest turn on, and although
it may not lead to intimacy initially it will eventually. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Broaden your interests, circle of friends and the places you go for entertainment, and you will meet someone you enjoy being with. Before making any promises, keep an eye on how indulgent the person you are with is and how it influences your habits. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your intensity will draw some partners and repel others. Follow your instincts when it comes to love. Don’t go after what you cannot have when there is someone much better suited to you waiting for your
attention. Share your intimate desires and find true love. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Protect your health, assets and emotional well-being when it comes to love relationships. Trying to impress someone who is taking advantage of you will not end well. Secret affairs will lead to sorrow. Know what you are getting into before you say yes. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Love and romance are highlighted. Make a promise to someone you feel is an asset to you emotionally, mentally and financially. Sharing your intentions will allow you to see how well you match up now as well as for years to come.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Proceed with caution. What you are told and what is actually being offered in a personal relationship may not be one in the same. Ask questions and bide your time. Someone who has way more in common with you is waiting for your attention. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Getting involved in something you believe in or a lifestyle that better suits you will lead to an intense partnership with someone looking to make similar life-altering changes. Express your concerns and plans, and before long you’ll be talking about doing things together.
