Lessons from California

What an incredible opportunity the City of Rochester had earlier this month to learn how some of the poorest communities in California are thriving. Dr. Anthony Iton of the California Endowment spoke at the 5th annual Guyer Lectureship in Public Health at the University of Rochester Medical Center, and presented his groundbreaking work tying ZIP code to life expectancy. How wonderful that walkable streets and access to green spaces impact our health more than blood pressure medications and surgery for obesity! Perhaps we should use Dr. Iton’s work as a model to help guide us while we address the challenges impacting the health and well-being of those living in the Rochester region — obesity, gun violence, failing schools, and intergenerational poverty to name a few. Let’s put our heads together to be sure all in our region are able to reach their fullest potential in a safe and healthy community. MARC LAVENDER

Abortion by any other name

In her October 14 Urban Journal (“Abortion rights limits are indeed an attack on women”), Mary Anna Towler writes, “It’s hard to speak out for something that opponents call infanticide. And facts and medical science get shoved to the side.” What else can we call it? Facts and medical science have shown that during pregnancy, a living human infant grows in her mother’s womb. The decision to have an abortion, even when made for the compelling reasons that Ms. Towler cites, is still nothing less than the termination of that life. I say this not because I want to declare war on other women or demonize the mothers who have had to make this terrible decision,

but because I feel it is necessary to speak up for the unborn child. MARY LOU BROWN

‘Bore’ was a bust

The “Big Bore” (News, October 14) is anything but, which is confirmed by your placing the county executive race on your cover. You clearly recognize the importance of breaking the Republican stranglehold on this influential office, and you’re fully aware of the real issues separating the candidates. So I was dismayed that your calling the race a bore plays into the hands of the Republicans’ “low profile” strategy, which, by discouraging people’s interest in voting, helps maintain the Republican status quo. We surely don’t want an “interesting” race like Donald Trump’s xenophobic, misogynist, racist, circus-like campaign that gets constant media attention. How about a reasonable discussion of issues like a countywide school district or a countywide progressive income tax to replace the regressive property tax and sales tax for school funding? How about a real jobs program instead of the absurdity called COMIDA? How about electing county legislators on the basis of proportional representation instead of gerrymandered districts? How about putting everybody under one big single-payer health plan instead of the crazy-quilt private-for-profit rip-off that we have now? We thankfully don’t have to deal here with typical Republican tactics such as purging registration lists, challenging voter ID’s, and negative campaigning where Democrats are labeled “tax and spend” (and the Republicans “tax and steal”). So the media should be highlighting, even dramatizing, the key issues in this race to convey their import to voters. Congratulations to City for doing its part, despite the unfortunate headline, in covering the campaign issues that are vital to our collective welfare. BILL MCCOY

GOP not interested in cooperation

I find it amazing that some people still say that President Obama is at fault because he didn’t find a way to

work with the Republican Congress. The current chaos in the House of Representatives with the Republican majority attempting to find a speaker shows that Republicans cannot even work with themselves. The Tea Party faction doesn’t want government to work except to implement their extreme social agenda of banning abortion, deporting undocumented immigrants, and establishing a Christian theocracy that allows individuals to discriminate on religious grounds. Unfortunately, I do not see the situation improving until Congressional districts are not gerrymandered and more middle-ofthe-road candidates are elected. DOUGLAS ROBB

Here comes the sun

Solar is a great idea, but they still need time to bring the costs down (no subsidies), and the efficiencies up. Until then, we can wait. And when you do [get solar], use a local company. JOHNNY

Like all technology, it’s getting better with time. I’ve been following solar/ wind power tech more over the past few years because I’ve started using solar out at my camp (as opposed to being grid-tied and paying a monthly charge to a utility company, when in reality I’m hardly using any electricity at the camp.) I tell you, it’s nice not paying a monthly service fee. If I had the funds to buy a system to power my actual house with solar/wind, I’d do it. ERIC MALONEY

A vote for Sanders

Bernie is not only a dreamer but a doer. He is someone who can reach across party lines to bring about the change we need in our country. He is absolutely correct that a revolution is what we need. The people of America need to rise up and take back their government from the pundits and the politicians for sale. With a president like Bernie, we could see real and meaningful change from Washington for the first time in a long time. Bernie is not for sale, and that means a lot to the American people, including me. WINGSOFCOLOR

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

An impossible job claims another superintendent Here we are again. The Rochester school board and Bolgen Vargas, the superintendent it hired with enthusiasm three years ago, are parting ways. Vargas’s contract doesn’t expire until next June, but tension between him and board members had been building, and they told him recently that they weren’t going to renew his contract when it expired. So they’re buying out the remainder of his contract, and he’s leaving at the end of December. The board and Vargas are trying to make the change as smooth and publicly palatable as possible. While not denying the seriousness of the situation, they’re describing the early contract termination as simple common sense. And it probably is. If the board wants a different direction, for instance, why have Vargas draft a budget that another administration would have to operate under? Is there more to it than that? Certainly some people will insist that there is; the tension between Vargas and the board hasn’t been a secret. And now many people will fly into yet another tantrum, damning the school board, damning Vargas, damning the teachers’ union, damning the district as a whole. But that’s misguided. There’s a growing crisis in public education in Rochester, and our latest difficulty with a superintendent is the result of that crisis, not the cause. The problem is that the public and community leaders expect the impossible from the school district. Rochester has one of the highest childpoverty rates in the nation. And we expect the school district to provide a quality education that will set students on a path to college or a career, despite the poverty and its concentration in a large swath of the city. This is not a Rochester problem. It is a problem facing every urban school district in the country. I’m past the point of arguing about the effects of concentrated poverty on children and on their education. Facts are facts. The effects of living in a highly stressed, high-poverty neighborhood have been documented, repeatedly. We’re snuffing out the chances of a successful life for thousands of children. Tragically, for too many city students, the future is one of continued poverty, life in stressful neighborhoods, and, for some, crime, prison, or early death. But it’s easier to point fingers than to work together and come up with

This is not a Rochester problem. It is a problem facing every urban school district in the country.” solutions – easier for those of us on the outside to damn the district than to recognize that the solution involves us. Vargas and the current school board are good people, committed to trying to do the impossible. We can get rid of all of them and bring in new players, but if we insist that the district has to do this job by itself, we’ll find ourselves in this same position a few years from now. The Rochester school district did not cause the poverty. It cannot eliminate it. Teachers, school board members, administrators: all can do a better job, and we should expect them to. But they cannot work miracles. This is a moral issue, and I can’t think of a more important one facing this community. That we have let our urban education crisis continue to build, decade after decade, is a sin. This community is in the early stages of a new effort to try to deal with the poverty. As its leaders have emphasized, if that effort is successful, it won’t happen overnight. It took a long time for Rochester’s poverty to get this bad, and it will take a long time and enormous effort to make a dent in it. Meantime, we’re facing another big change in the school district. That puts a major responsibility on the shoulders of school board members, obviously. But those of us on the outside have plenty of responsibility, too. A good place to start would be to stop blaming the school district for a problem the community continues to let build. rochestercitynewspaper.com

Nuclear pact

Rochester Gas & Electric and the Ginna nuclear plant have proposed some new terms for an agreement that temporarily props up the struggling power plant. RG&E would pay Ginna $15.4 million monthly to keep cranking out electricity, a decrease from the $17.5 million that the two parties originally proposed. The amended agreement, which needs the approval of state and federal regulators, would end on March 31, 2017.

Bolgen Vargas will step down as superintendent of the Rochester school district at the end of December, well before his contract expires in June 2016.

He will be replaced by Daniel Lowengard, retired superintendent of the Syracuse City School District. Lowengard will serve as interim superintendent of Rochester schools until a permanent superintendent is hired, hopefully by the end of the school year, says Rochester school board president Van White. Lowengard will not be eligible for the permanent job, White says. White says that all seven board members are in agreement concerning Vargas’s departure and the terms. The board will buy out the remaining six months of Vargas’s contract and Vargas has agreed to be available to support Lowengard in the transition. Vargas’s annual salary is $195,000. Vargas says that went to the board in September to talk about renewing his contract. But when board members indicated that his contract would likely not be

extended, Vargas says that he decided to leave. “It’s a mutual decision,” Vargas says. “It’s no secret to anyone here that we’ve had our disagreements and it’s in the best interest of the district.” Problems between Vargas and the school board have been brewing for at least a couple of years, going back to when Vargas hired former deputy mayor Patricia Malgieri — a well-known critic of the district — as his chief of staff early in his tenure. And his relationship with White has also been tense over the years, their differences at times spilling out into public view. But both men say that one of the most serious problems has been an ongoing disagreement over the roles and responsibilities of the board and that of the superintendent. Earlier this year, Vargas took the unusual step of continues on page 6

NEIGHBORHOODS | BY JEREMY MOULE

Clinic worries Brighton residents Growing opioid dependence in the Rochester region is straining local treatment facilities, including UR Medicine’s outpatient Strong Recovery program. The health system wants to move Strong Recovery — which treats alcohol and drug dependency, including opioid addiction — from Strong Memorial Hospital’s R-Wing on Crittenden Boulevard to the Brighton Business Center at 2613 West Henrietta Road so that the program can grow. UR Medicine plans to move the program in late spring, and will need a building permit from the Town of Brighton for some interior work at the site. But some of the complex’s West Brighton neighbors are troubled by one aspect of Strong Recovery: its outpatient methadone clinic. At a recent public meeting on the reorganization plan, a few residents worried that patients would commit crimes in the adjacent neighborhoods. One resident, who wouldn’t give his name, said he’s worried about patients “wandering around our neighborhood.” Other speakers asked about security at the site and how the methadone clinic works. Strong Recovery is a voluntary drug and alcohol dependency program, and the patients want treatment, UR Medicine representatives said at the meeting.

The opiate treatment program can accommodate approximately 375 people a year, while the drug and alcohol program can handle around 275 patients yearly. But demand exceeds capacity. New patients have to wait four to six weeks for a spot in the opioid treatment program and eight weeks for a slot in the alcohol and drug treatment program, said Patrick Seche, director of services for UR Medicine’s Addiction Psychiatry Division. At the new site, the opiate treatment program would be able to serve approximately 500 patients a year, he said, and the drug and alcohol program would accommodate 400. UR Medicine officials said that the Brighton Business Center is a logical site because the University of Rochester and its health system already have operations there. And the site is easily accessible by bus and car. The methadone clinic is more accurately called medication assisted treatment. Patients are administered medications such as methadone and buprenorphine to ease withdrawal symptoms from drugs including heroin and oxycodone, Seche said. Most of the patients in the opioid program have prescription pill addictions, he said. “That’s a growing problem,” he said, “especially among young people.”

Patients who receive the medications have to comply with strict criteria, including routine drug screenings, Seche said. And many work or attend school, he said. UR Medicine plans to have two security officers on the site at all times. One will be stationed in the parking lot and will make sure that patients don’t hang around the office after treatment, said Mark Fischer, University of Rochester’s chief of public safety. Brighton Police Chief Mark Henderson told residents at the meeting that the university has been responsive to town concerns about staffing and appearances at the site. The residents, town, and UR Medicine can work together to address any issues, he said. Society is struggling with opioid addiction, Henderson said, and his officers often see the consequences. Treatment, he said, is essential to address addiction.

threatening legal action against the board over a dispute concerning who and what types of positions should be allowed in the superintendent’s employee group, the cabinet-level management tier. Vargas continues to argue that the board changed the terms of his contract and overstepped its authority. “Reasonable people can make the case either way,” Vargas says. “It is clear that we don’t shy away publicly or privately around that difference.” White says that the disagreements led to significant differences about day to day operations of the district. The board’s actions are a result of the school board finally adhering to state education law, White says, after years of lax supervision of the SEG. It’s part of a “paradigm shift,” he says, in how the board will supervise superintendents going forward. White cites the board’s direct involvement in engaging the University of Rochester as the educational partner to turn around East High School as an example of this shift. And he says that the board is currently pursuing a partner for an elementary school. Vargas never followed through with litigation against the board, but the

threat clearly damaged his relationship with board members. Though he says he has no regrets about his decision, he also says that he would have preferred to stay with the district longer and that he has no immediate plans. Vargas was hired in 2011 as the interim superintendent following former superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard’s departure. Vargas was made permanent superintendent almost a year later in a 6-1 vote, with White opposed. At the time, many school district officials and community leaders said that Vargas was a good choice because of his roots in Rochester.

board member and its president. Vargas seemed to immediately benefit from a comfortable working relationship with Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester Teachers Association, mending the bitter feud between teachers and central office that developed under Brizard. Some teachers said they were impressed with Vargas’s counseling background because it is similar to classroom teaching experience. And board members initially seemed relieved, too, because Vargas said he had no interest in seeing governance of the district shift to mayoral control. Vargas struck up a solid working relationship with then mayor Tom Richards, a refreshing change from the tense history between the district and City Hall. Vargas immediately laid out an aggressive strategy to reverse decades of academic decline at the school district by focusing on fundamentals such as improving the district’s attendance and having students read proficiently by the third grade. He argued for offering the same academic and extracurricular amenities that suburban schools offer: sports, fully functioning libraries, arts, music, and drama instruction. And he emphasized early childhood education and universal prekindergarten for all 4-year-olds in the city.

Vargas lengthened the amount of instruction time that students in the district’s lowest performing schools receive, borrowing a strategy for academic improvement frequently touted by higher-performing charter schools. “The work we’ve done in Rochester speaks for itself,” Vargas says. But some teachers appear to have changed their view of Vargas and his administration. In a recent interview, Urbanski said that while Vargas has worked collaboratively with teachers on many fronts, that lately they have disagreed on several issues. “I give him a lot of credit for increasing a lot of resources for schools, music, art, and physical education,” he said. “But I have to tell you that lately teachers have become very frustrated with what they consider to be central office’s neglect of schools.” Urbanski cited school safety and discipline concerns, recent changes in how special education is managed, and confusion over additional working hours. Few people expected Vargas’s contract to be renewed, he said.

Dining

The Beer Market, as the name implies, focuses mostly on all kinds of beer. The College Town bar offers around 50 beers on tap, including three nitro lines, and an extensive bottle selection. But there is also a food menu that features a selection of pizzas and pretzels. PHOTOS BY MARK CHAMBERLIN

Tapping into good beer The Beer Market 1401 MT. HOPE AVENUE MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY, 11 A.M. TO 12 A.M.; THURSDAY, 11 A.M. TO 1 A.M.; FRIDAY, 11 A.M. TO 2 A.M.; SUNDAY, 12 P.M. TO 12 A.M. 244-2337; FACEBOOK.COM/THEBEERMARKETROCHESTER [ REVIEW ] BY CHRIS LINDSTROM

Regardless of what you think about the style of the College Town development, it has become the immediate dining and social hub for the University of Rochester crowd. Most of the bases are covered within the College Town confines, including a selection of chain establishments, a stylish Italian restaurant, and the only grocery store in the vicinity. The whole development is a bit on the antiseptic side for my tastes, but the access to all of these things is a definite positive for the area. Right at the tail end of the College Town strip on Mt. Hope Avenue is The Beer Market, where I recently spent some time diving into an expansive beer selection. I enjoyed searching through the double sided page of tap listings to find

some gems among the 50 beers offered at any given time. I’ve had a thing for double IPAs over the past year and I was delighted by the tropical fruit notes and overall balance from Grimm Artisanal Ales’ Afterimage. Not only was this a fantastic beer, but the next time I stopped in, it was already off the tap list. On the surface, this might sound like a bad thing, but being able to have high demand for interesting, limited release beers keeps things fresh and allows for more diverse selections. If you’re serious about beer, The Beer Market should be a regular stop. The service at the bar was consistently friendly and helpful, especially when I had issues picking from the list. With a category or style in mind, samples were freely offered to try and narrow down the choices. After the relatively heavy Afterimage, I was looking for something lighter but still interesting. A Keebarlin’ Pale Ale from Anderson Valley fit the bill nicely with a complex middle and a light abv. The Beer Market also had a strong selection of local brews, including a refreshing peach sour from Swiftwater Brewing just down the street, and the limited edition Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter from Genesee.

In addition to the draft selection that includes three nitro lines (Guinness included), The Beer Market also has fridge space full of bottles that well outnumber the tap list. If you’re feeling indecisive you can also go for flights, but be aware that you’re paying half the price of a whole beer for each smallish glass. The food at The Beer Market isn’t much more than an afterthought since the focus is clearly on the beer selection. That’s not to say that some of the food wasn’t tasty, but this is not the restaurant you come to for dishes made from scratch in house. Sometimes, you just get food because you’re drinking and it doesn’t have to be high class to hit the spot. The Barbarian pretzel ($12.95) is massive and serves as a good accompaniment to drinking in a group. Surprisingly, I didn’t hate the processed beer cheese and mustard sauces that came along with it. The chicken BLT ($9.95) was generic with a toasted focaccia roll and bacon that thankfully overpowered the nonseared piece of plain chicken breast. I sampled two different pizzas from the list: the Shroom with added sausage, and the Farmer’s Market with added chicken. The thicker-style crust was originally frozen but was cooked in a pan giving it some

pleasant crunch. The mushroom pizza ($11.95) had spare diced mushrooms and a whole mess of cheese along with a garlic oil base. Adding crumbles of fennel sausage (add 50 cents) was beneficial and the pie satisfied in a greasy, heavy Pizza Hut kind of way. The Farmer’s Market’s ($12.95) ingredients played lighter with a highly acidic, tinny tomato sauce, and artichokes, red onion, and mushrooms. The spinach was dried out and borderline burnt since it was added at the beginning of cooking instead of the end. If you’re a Bills fan that likes watching the game out at a bar, I’d recommend giving The Beer Market a shot one of these weeks. When I came in, the game was on about half the TVs and the sound was pumped through to the bar so I didn’t miss the opportunity to yell at the awful announcers. There wasn’t a huge crowd which allowed my wife and I to spread out, try some beers, and watch as the Bills disappointed again. At least the beer was good.

Opera Week MONDAY, NOVEMBER 2, THROUGH SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8 LYRIC THEATRE, 400 EAST AVENUE VARIOUS TIMES | FREE TO $25 ROCHESTERLYRICOPERA.ORG [ OPERA ] In celebration of National Opera Week, Rochester Lyric Opera will present a series of performances and lectures, and a competition at the Lyric Theatre. The week begins Monday, November 2, 7 p.m., with a lecture from the Opera Guild of Rochester’s Art Axelrod about the “bad boys” in opera. The week’s events include a performance of arias, “Handel to Heggie,” by Opera Ithaca (Tuesday, November 3, 8 p.m.); and a voice competition featuring teens in 9th through 12th grades (Sunday, November 8, 7 p.m.). — BY JAKE CLAPP

This here LP is a tour of the ultimate record collection; a collection it belongs in. Laying it on thick and heavy with copious doses of greasy melody and greasier riffs, Rock-N-Roll Social Club delivers a nice clean kick to the balls. In the spirit of bands that skate the line between hard rock and even harder rock, this veteran Rochester band has self-produced an exceptional salvo to the blessed trinity of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll with “Everything’s Fine in the Big Time.” The album positively seethes with guitar machismo and grit while the vocals growl with a ragged wisdom over a bed of impending trouble. It kind of reminds me of GNR or STP without the drug abuse or rampant douche-baggery. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

“Twelve Spells” threatens to boil over with its steamy chaos and kerrang. Garage rock has a series of posts you have to kick the ball through or — according to the bowl-cut-wearing Nazi eggheads — it ain’t garage rock. I disagree. Those who don’t obey, don’t abide, or don’t follow are the innovators who will keep the dust off the genre and keep it exciting. You can start with The Stone Foxes’ overall implementation of syncopation without derailing the groove to keep the party going. Calling this San Francisco garage band a garage band is not entirely inaccurate; it’s just that it’s so much more. I know it’s my job to describe it, but it escapes me. Let me say The Stone Foxes has mod moxy, and a retro tube drive get-up and shake. It’s epic, cinematic, and gone. It’ll pick you up, Jack. Just spin the tracks “She Said Riot” or “Dying Star” and try to sit still. More than garage rock at a passing glance, but when it decides to, awesome garage prevails. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

Call to Reserve

Austin Lake grew up wanting to be a stuntman, but got hooked on the music thing instead. His solo project's name, Aweful Kanawful, is allegedly the name of Evel Knievel's cellmate. PHOTO BY FRANK DE BLASE

Stunt rock Aweful Kanawful FOR MORE, CHECK OUT AWEFULKANAWFUL.BANDCAMP.COM [ FEATURE ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

Not everyone sets out to be a rock star. “I always wanted to be a stuntman,” Austin Lake says. “Evel Knievel had his own record. And I thought it was a good publicity stunt to put out your own record. And now I’m hooked on this music thing. I realized I had some stuff I wanted to get out there.” Lake records under the nomme de’ twang Aweful Kanawful and has just released “Brave As Hits,” an album (cassette actually) of lo-fi elegance and innovation. The album is positively brilliant and warrants further discussion. But first, that name. “Aweful Kanawful? I stole that,” Lake says. “It’s allegedly the name of Evel Knievel’s cellmate. And I also think of the name Aweful as falling gracefully in awe — a-w-e — like a demented bald eagle. Like a good thing gone bad.” Lake is in numerous bands with his two brothers, Trevor and Brendan … all three daredevils. 12 CITY OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 3, 2015

“Me and my brothers made stunts all the time,” he says. “That was just as common place as playing music. It’s the same thing to me either we were jamming or out building jumps. But now I’m not doing the stunts so much anymore.” It’s tough to play rock ‘n’ roll with broken fingers or in a sling. “That’s the thing that makes me nervous,” Lake says. “Before I didn’t care. But now I’m hooked on this music thing.” Each Lake Brothers group is frenetic and raw. The Temptators, The Televisionaries, Flip Shit, King Vitamin, all exude the brothers’ primitive rock ‘n’ roll ethos. But Aweful Kanawful is all Austin Lake with a Tascam 8-track recorder and pirated instruments. It has that desperate A-Bones appeal with a vintage nod a la Tav Falco. It sounds like the production you’d find on Sun Records when Ike Turner was an A&R man. But the songs for the most part aren’t your stock 1-4-5 bop. There’s more of an angular twist that snakes its way throughout. It’s wild. Lake now wants to flesh out and turn it into

a band. “I don’t want to be thought of as a recording guy,” Lake says. “I’m a player. But all I’ve done is record; I haven’t played out

yet. I’m putting together a band right now — actually more of a concert than a band, a piece we can play out. I know it is weird starting this way without a band.” So now he’ll have the added task of explaining and compromising with others. But he’s not afraid if the songs change. In fact… “I hope they do,” Lake says. “I just want the original one documented. I want the fantasy that was originally there.” Even if it’s a change for the worse. “Oh, it’s happened already. The Temptators play an Aweful Kanawful song, “Kona Kona,” and it’s way worse than it was.” Lake is in the midst of setting up the band, and has plans already in the works for a new recording called “Aweful Kanawful Live at Clams Casino.” He promises it’ll be even more conceptual and perhaps a little less rockabilly. His creative approach will remain scattered and beautifully indirect. Inspiration comes from everywhere. “I dunno,” he explains, “There’s no one source things are coming out of. If you pick out of the same hat you’re going to get things that are similar. I try to shake it up. Sometimes I have ideas or songs that come to me in the middle of the night. I’ll sing it, record it, go back to bed. Sometimes I have stuff that haunts me for days. I’ve always been more a fan of the lyrical side of things, than the musical stuff, but you can’t make music that’s just lyrics. You’ve got to pay attention to the music and the instruments so you can get your story across. I was writing stories before I began writing music. There should be a story in music. It can’t all be about the girl who broke your heart.” He wants to take these stories on the road and play them there — literally. “I’d like to take the music to the people in a U-Haul; carpet the interior, hang a chandelier, put a piano in there, hook it up so we can drive places and put on a show. Not everyone wants to hang in a club, me being one of those people. I’m 22 and I’m already sick of it.” Stunts aren’t completely out of the question either. “The goal is to play the piano then jump the piano,” Lake says. “Put the piano on a trailer, drive the trailer to the middle of town on a nice summer day, play with the band, have the band keep a vamp, get on the motorcycle and jump the whole set. It’s gonna happen. That’s a guarantee. It’s gonna happen before I leave.”

CLASSICAL | “DISTANT WORLDS: MUSIC FROM ‘FINAL FANTASY’”

For most video gamers, the “Final Fantasy” series is instantly recognizable for its epic nature. The storytelling is always grand, rich, and dramatic, and to match the vision, an equally impressive and emotional score is needed. It can be argued that a lot of the emotional intensity that exists in a “Final Fantasy” game is owed to the work of composer Nobuo Uematsu, who has created the majority of the series’ orchestral pieces. Created in 2007 in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of “Final Fantasy,” the “Distant Worlds” concert tour is the longest running “Final Fantasy” concert series, and on Thursday, the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Arnie Roth, will perform a deep repertoire of Uematsu’s moving works from the video game series. Madrigalia chorus and vocalist Susan Calloway will perform with the orchestra. The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra will perform “Distant Worlds” on Thursday, October 29, at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, 60 Gibbs Street. 7:30 p.m. $22-$114. rpo.org; ffdistantworlds.com. — BY JAKE CLAPP Ryan Carey on Flameno Jazz Guitar.

Climb the mountain “Annapurna” REVIEWED SATURDAY, OCTOBER 24 CONTINUES THROUGH SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8 BLACKFRIARS THEATRE, 795 EAST MAIN STREET TICKETS START AT $28.50 BLACKFRIARS.ORG [ REVIEW ] BY LEAH STACY

Before the house lights go down on any Blackfriars Theatre show, artistic director Danny Hoskins says a few words in what is becoming a new tradition. “If you like this show,” he says, “go tell everyone about it after you leave tonight. Knock on your neighbor’s door when you get home and tell them to go see it.” And if you don’t like it, “tell everyone you went to Chili’s tonight.” Hoskins calls this the “pact.” It’s a humorous way to start a show, but it’s refreshing in many ways. Blackfriars is in the midst of big changes this season, and it is taking initiative to not only perform for their audience, but to build a community around the theater. Blackfriars is also taking risks with many of this season’s shows. “Annapurna” debuted in 2011 at the Magic Theatre in San Francisco and opened off-Broadway in 2014 starring Megan Mullally (best known as Karen on TV’s “Will & Grace”) and Nick Offerman (best known as Ron on “Parks and Recreation”), a real life couple. The play was likened to a “scruffier version of a Lifetime television movie about love gone wrong” by the New York Times, but that seems a discredit to the 90 minutes of commanding human interaction that happen in this play. Ulysses hasn’t seen his ex-wife, Emma, or their son, Sam, since they fled in the middle of the night 20 years ago. The once famous poet now lives in a ramshackle trailer in the “ass-crack of the (Colorado) Rockies” — and that’s where Emma shows up one day, luggage in tow. What follows is the distillation of a relationship that ended on paper 20 years ago but still continues in heads and hearts. Playwright Sharr White (who also penned Broadway’s “The Other Place” and “The Snow Geese”) named the play for Annapurna, a group of mountains in the Himalayas and one of the most dangerous in the world to climb. Ulysses eventually reveals 16 CITY OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 3, 2015

he has been working on an epic poem about Emma, titled — you guessed it — “Annapurna,” inspired by a story he read about expert French alpinist Maurice Herzog, who lost parts of his toes and fingers after he dropped his gloves during descent. Like Herzog, Ulysses has a (metaphorical) glove drop in his life — the night Emma left with their son, Sam — and the mystery surrounding that night provides the underlying suspense in the play. The power of “Annapurna” could easily be lost with the wrong direction or cast members. The level of trust required for a twoperson show is painfully Kerry Young as Emma and Rick Staropoli as Ulysses in the Blackfriars high, but director (and Theatre production of “Annapurna.” PHOTO BY DAN HOWELL costumer) Patricia Lewis Browne and her cast, story.

When words fail “Red” THROUGH NOVEMBER 15 GEVA THEATRE CENTER, 75 WOODBURY AVENUE TICKETS START AT $25 232-4382 | GEVATHEATRE.ORG [ ANALYSIS ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

Post-war artists became not painters of pictures, but painters of conditions, reflecting — in works that properly defied tangibility – the world’s disillusionment. They expressed the mammoth weight of things that are universally experienced but not easily uttered. Viewing these works can therefore be something of a spiritual experience, where we reach out to touch but never grasp some greater, slippery form. Bearing this in mind, it is understandable that Mark Rothko felt conflicted about creating work for an upscale eatery, where it would be merely a pricey backdrop for fashion and social intrigue. Geva’s current production is John Logan’s “Red,” a vignette of 18 CITY OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 3, 2015

Rothko’s struggle and self-sabotage through this period of time. Set about a decade prior to his 1970 suicide, the one-act play takes place entirely in Rothko’s studio, envisioning the conversations that might have taken place between a rather arrogant Rothko (played by Stephen Caffrey) and his eager young studio assistant, Ken (John Ford-Dunker). After many shifts in style, Rothko rose to prominence for his ability to manipulate mood with pure hue floating in soft-focus color fields. In 1958, Rothko was commissioned by the Seagram and Sons beverage company to create a series of site-specific murals for The Four Seasons, a luxury restaurant in New York City. Throughout the show, Rothko mostly avoids the gargantuan canvases, smoking and drinking his way through what might as well have been soliloquies, if not for the willful pushback of his assistant, who challenges his increasingly bitter statements. Ken may be “just an employee” to Rothko, but after two years, it’s not entirely clear what Rothko is to Ken. Searching for meaning through

his own tragic memories, Ken wants a mentor, and sticks by Rothko until he unwittingly relents. Ford-Dunker plays Ken as young and hungry, opinionated and contentious, but as-yet unencumbered by the philosophical demons that ride Rothko. Ken flippantly challenges Rothko’s artistic integrity and hypocrisies. As with all difficult humans, it becomes evident over time that Rothko’s bluster and bullying comes from a place of deep dissatisfaction and despair. Having had a calloused hand in sweeping away the careers of his predecessors, Rothko dreads that karma will render him irrelevant before long. Among other things, Ken represents a cock-sure new wave of artists. Instead of the cross-generation contact having a quickening effect on Rothko, there is mostly a battle of stubborn wills. But It’s evident that Rothko still trusts in the power of his work’s resonance; he only desires control over how it will be presented. The Four Seasons commission was a golden egg, but a blemished one – in one particularly sneering speech, Rothko

balks at the idea of his work becoming one more decorative trophy at this decadent feasting trough of the elite. Rothko felt his art required a place for quiet reflection in order for it to work its mysteries on the viewer. He knew the proximity required for immersion, urging Ken to step closer than we usually do to large paintings, and let the peripheral world dissolve. Through Rothko’s rants, the play itself makes reference to the chapel that would become the setting for his final commission of paintings before his death. Art critic Jerry Saltz aptly described Rothko’s work as “Buddhist TV’s,” or what Keats called “good oblivion.” Fine, that’s a good starting place. But the seed of something greater is meant to be awakened from meditation, and this seems to be what Rothko was after. It’s a given that the artist has little control over how his art is interpreted, received, or appreciated. But the artist’s intention is arguably part of the art’s legacy and spirit. Ken serves as sort of a foil for Rothko’s greater audience, in that he helplessly brings his own associations to the table when viewing Rothko’s nearly blank-slate paintings. One of my favorite meditations about the act of creating came from another tragic visionary, David Foster Wallace. He said that the difference between “good” art and “so-so” art “lies somewhere in the art’s heart’s purpose, the agenda of the consciousness behind the text. It’s got something to do with love. With having the discipline to talk out of the part of yourself that can love instead of the part that just wants to be loved.” Rothko’s work arguably was coming from a place of love, but also all of the messiness that love entails: fear, vulnerability, hope, and in the case of this commission, spite. But the paintings don’t retain that precise emotion. The play’s most pivotal moment sees Rothko’s obstinate mood shifts to a concession of defeat. In the “Red” paintings, Rothko’s act of passing the torch is distilled, happening forever, eternally fading to black. The Memorial Art Gallery has partnered with Geva for this production, by borrowing Rothko’s “Untitled” (1961) painting from the Buffalo’s Albright-Knox Art Gallery. The painting will be on view at the MAG through the run of the show.

Welcome to

Rochester [ INTRODUCTION ] BY JAKE CLAPP

It’s time to revisit the Flower City. Over the last two months, City Newspaper’s Best of Rochester readers’ poll has asked you for your opinion: What are the best people, places, and things in Rochester? We ask that question each year, and each time the poll grows and changes to better reflect our community. But we want to push our Best of Rochester survey a little further this year. We want this to be a guide to Rochester. A fresh welcome to the city for everyone — the visitor, the new resident, and the native. We are all guilty of sticking to our favorites. It’s easy to rely on the same restaurants, the same date spot, the same performers and entertainment. When everything is fighting for our attention and we’re crunched for time, we turn to our comfort zones. But Rochester is a big city. It’s just waiting to be discovered. In the first round of this Best of Rochester poll, we asked what you would want to tell a newcomer about our city – or what it was that your neighbor should know about in order to see Rochester with a new perspective. Then, in our final round, we hoped that you would take some time to explore, stop in at a new business, and consider the suggestions in the final four before casting your final vote. Now that the final results are here, we hope that you hold on to these results. Use it as a visitor’s guide to the city. Take some time over the next year — maybe once a month, once a quarter, or even just twice this year — and try something new from this survey. And whenever you’re in the mood for something specific and don’t know where to go, open up this guide and try one of the top four. Hey, if people like it enough to vote it the “best,” then it might satisfy.

More than16,000 people took our final readers’ poll — a new record — and a few of the contests really came down to the wire. A sincere thank you to all of the readers who voted. A little bit about our process: City’s annual Best of Rochester Poll is a Readers Poll, meaning all of the finalists, and the winners, were chosen by our readers. City Newspaper operates only as a tabulator and gatekeeper. The Primary Ballot changes every year, constructed from editorial picks and reader suggestions, and no one sees that ballot until it goes online. Survey-takers may then write in whatever people, places, and things they think are the best in each of the categories. City employees then get together to go through and count the literally thousands of responses to pick out the Top 4 — or more, on occasion, if a tie occurs — in each category. We disqualify votes only if they’re for a national chain, don’t fit the category, or are clearly the result of ballot stuffing. The Final 4 are then put on the Final Ballot, readers vote, and the winners are kept secret until this Best of Rochester issue. In addition to the Readers Poll, this Best of issue also contains a collection of our readers’ funnier answers to the Primary Ballot as well as our annual Critics’ Picks. This year, Frank De Blase, Christine Carrie Fien, Dave LaBarge, Kathy Laluk, Katie Libby, Tim Macaluso, Jeremy Moule, Ron Netsky, Rebecca Rafferty, Leah Stacy, and Kate Stathis give their opinons. If you would like to sound off on our readers’ poll, have a good idea for a category, or have any feedback at all, comment on this article at rochestercitynewspaper.com, email us at themail@rochester-citynews.com, or find us on Twitter (@roccitynews) and Facebook (facebook. com/CityNewspaper). There’s a lot to see, and a lot of opportunities for adventure in Rochester. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find something special.

The Turkey Melt at Harry G’s In case you haven’t seen the debate, Google “Is a hotdog a sandwich?” The question went viral earlier this year, and you’ll find that what constitutes a sandwich for one person is something else entirely to another. Still, there is little better to satisfy an appetite for flavors than a well-crafted sandwich piled high with carefully curated meats, cheeses, vegetables, and condiments on any manner of bread. Harry G’s in the South Wedge is well aware of this. It is especially true of an item one cashier recently wasn’t even sure the restaurant made: the Turkey Melt. It’s hidden under the panini portion of the menu as a result of being heated on a flat top. Lying between crisp slabs of bread is a thick mound of superlative Ovengold turkey, shaved red onion, tomatoes, hot peppers, pepper jack cheese, and spicy mayo. The heat melds the juices from the tomatoes and turkey with the melted cheese and warm mayo to form a spicy concoction you might wish would never end. The red onion and hot peppers augment each bite with their crunch and strong flavors. Sandwiches are the perfect foodstuff. And so is Harry G’s Turkey Melt. — BY DAVE LABARGE

2015 food trend most deserving to die in a grease fire

Everything fried in duck fat

Bacco’s Ristorante 263 Park Avenue • 442-5090 (private parking in back)

SERVING DINNER TUESDAY - SATURDAY

Last year, Laura Rebecca Kenyon took on the “addon egg” as the food trend that just needs to stop. I’m taking umbrage this year with the trend of deepfrying every damn thing in duck fat. It’s everywhere, shouted loud and proud on menus and special boards: duck fat fries; duck fat gravy; duck fat bread! It needs to end. It’s not that I don’t understand why chefs want to use duck fat — it’s a “healthy” fat and has a rich flavor — but how about we not put it in the appetizer, the entrée, and dessert? Ducks need a break. And we’re going to get burnt out. — BY KATIE LIBBY

WHAT'S YOUR

FAVORITE FOOD AND DRINK? LEAVE A COMMENT AT

Rochester indulges in quite a bit of highminded talk about poverty — crunching numbers, analyzing systems — only to have this or that committee’s report slowly turn to parchment on someone’s shelf. Studies are important, of course, but they don’t feed anybody. Not directly. The Rochester Public Market does. The market partnered with a handful of other farmers’ markets in the area to land a grant that should help more SNAP recipients get access to healthy food. Next spring, the group will launch a major twoyear marketing effort to make more people aware of how they can use their SNAP benefits at the participating markets. And the Public Market will sell its market tokens — which SNAP customers buy with their benefits to spend at the market — at more places in the market, to make the process quicker and easier. The token program is taking off. The Public Market sold more than $500,000 in tokens in 2014 and is on pace to beat that this year. And more than 70 percent of the money is spent on fruits and vegetables. “This is an amazing program,” says Margaret O’Neill, program director of the Friends of the Rochester Public Market. You bet. – BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

In this world of smartphones, on demand TV, and “Gotta have it right now” mentality, one of the worst experiences we put up with in our daily lives is waiting. But for some reason, I find myself looking forward to going to Duffy’s Penfield Automotive (1847 Penfield Road) to sit in the waiting room while I get my car fixed. The waiting room is tiny, but the atmosphere isn’t. It’s a got a funky dive bar-ish charm about it — from the license plates and Rochester paraphernalia on the walls to the unlimited cups of fresh coffee and pastries and the trusty confidant who knows everyone. Like your favorite watering hole, Sue Duffy confidently mans the counter, greeting everyone who walks through the door like an old friend she hasn’t seen in forever, eager to hear about your day, your problems, your life, your story. And while most waiting rooms are like torture cells, where you’re left with nothing but a few magazines and drab elevator music to entertain you, Duffy’s also comes complete with its own pup to play with. Murphy has mellowed over the years, but he’ll still scamper after his favorite ball or chew toy if you toss it around. — BY KATHY LALUK OCTOBER 28-NOVEMBER 3, 2015

DEALER

Thanks to Frank Costanza, I’ve been on a search for serenity ever since I first heard him yell for it in his garage. My mantra “Splendor and Ease,” though phrased a little differently and not invoked with clenched fists held high, has been achieved with yoga. I have Parkinson’s disease and have had many, many people recommend yoga over the years to combat the drugs that combat the symptoms that combat me. Well, I never had the time, or it was too boring, or based on the one or two times I had tried it, too hard. And I looked terrible in yoga pants. But being a recovering Catholic I had no interest in getting in touch with my inner self, inner child, or inner peace. Not for me, man. Then I met Yvonne, my super-cool instructor who taught me how to breathe and focus and balance. Yvonne shared my affliction so we were able to dive right in to the ancient art without a lot of useless preamble. It’s been six months and my movement, balance, and mood have changed drastically. Yvonne and Yoga have helped me reclaim a good portion of my life and dignity back. To look at me, you wouldn’t think I’d be such an advocate, but I’m here to tell you if you want your own version of “Serenity now,” try yoga anywhere you can … even if you look terrible in yoga pants. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

CRITICS PICKS Best rising star in education Shaun Nelms A lot of eyes are on Shaun Nelms right now. The former deputy superintendent of the Greece Central School District and former Rochester schools administrator was chosen as East High School’s deputy superintendent earlier this year. When the University of Rochester agreed to take control of East after the State Education Department threatened to close the school due to low performance, many people saw it as a bold but risky move. And the selection of Nelms to lead the school’s turnaround has put him in the spotlight. Spend a few minutes with Nelms, and it’s evident that he’s up for the task. Bright, personable, and passionate about East’s students, teachers, and parents, Nelms says he’s convinced that the school and staff are on the right path. But he says it will take time to transform East. His immediate challenge, he says, is restoring confidence and getting students and teachers to not be afraid to take chances. – BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO 30 CITY BEST OF ROCHESTER 2015

OCTOBER 28-NOVEMBER 3, 2015

Best group whose time has come: Rochester People’s Climate Coalition Climate change is a serious, complex, and difficult issue. Its worst effects won’t be felt until years down the line, but aggressive solutions — particularly state and federal policies that force carbon emissions cuts — need to start now. Collective political will is critical to climate action, since many elected leaders still aren’t taking climate change seriously enough. The Republican presidential candidates treat it as a punchline, and the Democratic candidates as an afterthought. That’s why the Rochester People’s Climate Coalition is so important. The coalition brings together diverse local groups interested in climate action: environmentalists, parents, faith communities, labor unions, and local government officials to demonstrate that Rochesterians don’t just support climate action, they demand it. The group organized a handful of oil train protests and put together the area’s firstever candidates’ forum on climate change. It was also instrumental in bringing pioneering NASA climate scientist James Hansen to this year’s Sierra Club environmental forum – BY JEREMY MOULE

Best under-the-radar neighborhood Upper Monroe A recent local news article claimed, “All your friends are moving to Victor,” but many DINKs (that’s “Double Income, No Kids”) are choosing to live within city limits and still enjoy a healthy, affordable lifestyle. The Upper Monroe neighborhood — nestled near the Swillburg and Park Avenue neighborhoods and right near the Brighton town line — is a natural progression for young couples or even families who want to move beyond renting in the trendy Park Ave or South Wedge areas. (Full disclosure: I recently moved to Upper Monroe after several stints in Park Ave and one in Marketview Heights.) Cobbs Hill is within walking distance. The Culver Road Armory boasts high-end shopping and eateries — with another expansion in the works. Street parking is always available. Single-family homes are affordable and sit on tree-lined lots. The city’s largest community garden, Wide Water Gardens, is located between Rosedale and Hinsdale streets. Upper Monroe? More like Upper Fun-roe. — BY LEAH STACY

CRITICS PICKS Best Preservation Success St. Joseph’s Park At last, St. Joseph’s Park is open. “St. Joe’s” is significant in Rochester history, and the Landmark Society of Western NY should be lauded for the achievement. The project’s success results from what the Landmark Society does best: conscientious planning and creative collaboration. Generous grant funding and private donations facilitated meticulous restoration, with vibrant landscaping donated as well. The downtown scene is enlivened with free concert series and special events, including The Yards’ Spectral Carnival, a magical evening heightened by the structure’s surreal atmosphere. Just to be there — whether attending an event or in quiet contemplation — instills wonder of what once was and of what is yet to be. St. Joseph’s Park is located at 108 Franklin Street, and the Landmark Society’s 2005 book, “The Oasis of Grace: A History of Saint Joseph’s Church and Park, Rochester, NY” offers in-depth history.

CRITICS PICKS Best ubiquitous independent concert venue Bop Shop Records Bop Shop Records has always been a great place to find vintage records, and the old Village Gate location sponsored adventurous jazz concerts in the atrium. But in recent years, and without much fanfare, the new location on Monroe Avenue has become a major independent concert venue. Bop Shop owner, Tom Kohn, has become a leading impresario at multiple venues. With acts ranging from straight-ahead ensembles to avant-garde groups, Kohn’s shop has grown into a stop on many Northeast tours. While Kohn is happy to give up-and-coming acts a chance, he also brings in established players like Dave Liebman, Matthew Shipp, and Joel Harrison, and groups like the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble. His interests stretch way beyond jazz to contemporary folk artists like Jen Chapin and Rory Block and world music bands like the Musette Explosion. But the Bop Shop is just part of it. Kohn puts on larger shows, like the upcoming visit of the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra, at Lovin’ Cup. And he brings folk legends like Michael Hurley to Abilene Bar & Lounge. Looking over the dozens of shows Kohn’s presented over the last several years it’s clear; Rochester would be a dull place musically without Kohn and Bop Shop Records. — BY RON NETSKY PHOTO BY MARK CHAMBERLIN

CRITICS PICKS Best medium for making a pass that’s coming back Cassette tapes Like a lot of lovelorn teenagers growing up in the 1970’s and 1980’s, I used music to express myself. I strapped a guitar between me and the rest of the world. But before I could serenade my romantic prospects with my own music, I relied on others’ music and I put it on a cassette tape; a risky practice on a medium that is returning to the fore. You see, bands with no shortage of irony are back releasing albums not only on vinyl, but cassette tape. I figure it’s just a matter of time before we start seeing blank cassettes in stores again. And teenagers can start pitching woo once again with a carefully selected set of songs on a cassette tape. “Mixed tapes” is what we called them and each song we shoe-horned on them had a special meaning as did the order the songs were loaded onto the cassette. The Thompson Twins’ “Hold Me Now” or Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me” didn’t need a lot of interpretation. Songs by Sinatra showed your sophistication, while anything by Judas Priest showed anger issues. The Doors, dark and moody, and anything by your tape’s recipient’s favorite band like Simon & Garfunkel showed desperation. Hopefully these little windows to the soul will make a comeback, for love or lust. Say what you want with someone else’s music. Just no Taylor Swift or Kanye West, please. — BY FRANK DE BLASE

CRITICS PICKS Best lost-and-found shopping Bug Jar Bug Jar is known as one of Rochester’s beloved watering holes that also offers music by local and touring acts almost every night of the week. But what you may not know is that it’s also a great spot to score a free piece of clothing. Whether it’s because they got overheated while dancing, or some other reason you probably don’t want to picture, loads of people have left their scarves/sweaters/hoodies/ jackets/shirts/shoes (no joke) behind. And as far as I’ve been able to tell, few people come back for their discarded attire. “The strangest thing left there was an extra-large set of bra and panties,” says Bug Jar barkeep Ian Andrews. “But what I don’t get is 36 CITY BEST OF ROCHESTER 2015

or hat. They might ask you to describe it (bad luck), or you might get escorted to go look (yay). But if the item you select isn’t truly yours, be prepared for a potential awkward moment on the streets. Now, I wouldn’t advocate taking someone else’s stuff unless it was already languishing in the territory of the long forgotten. And if you look at it the right way, you’ll be helping the owners regain some real estate and saving them a trip to the thrift store. So, consider this a heads up for free wardrobe supplements, and a gentle prompt for the drunkies to go collect their shit. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

THEATER | “THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS”

“The Intergalactic Nemesis” is a comedic adventure story that has taken the form of a PBS-produced YouTube series, audio dramas, an audio podcast, graphic novels, and a multi-installment theatrical production. On Friday, October 30, Nazareth College Arts Center (4245 East Avenue) will present “Target Earth,” part one of the live-action graphic novel, which introduces us to three fearless heroes who set out to save humanity from an evil, alien force. Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott bravely face the impending invasion of 1930’s Earth by sludge monsters. The show combines audio drama and comic book with big-screen artwork, actors, a Foley artist creating hundreds of sounds, and a pianist. The performance will take place at 8 p.m. in Callahan Theater. Single tickets are $15-$35. To purchase, call 3892170 or visit artscenter.naz.edu. Ticket holders may attend a free pre-performance graphic illustration workshop at 6 p.m. (pre-registration is required, call 389-2170). A pre-performance lecture with members of the company will be offered at 7 p.m. in the Peace Theater (room A14), located in the lower level of the Arts Center. Food trucks will be parked in the Arts Center parking lot (Lot A) prior to the start of this show. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

FILM | “NEW YORK PORTRAIT I, II, III”

Not every story is told by spinning a linear yarn or by zeroing in on specific characters. On Wednesday, October 28, the Dryden Theatre (Eastman Museum, 900 East Avenue) will screen Peter Hutton’s “New York Portrait I, II, III” in 16mm. The three-part work is non-narrative, but rather a collection of impressions of place. Edited in three parts over 12 years, Hutton creates a poetic, textural sketch of New York City’s rhythms, architecture, and inhabitants. “New York Portrait I, II, III” is part of the “Five Faces of New York in the 1970’s” series showing at Dryden, which kicked off with Woody Allen’s “Manhattan.” The 47-minute screening begins at 8 p.m. with a special introduction to be given by Douglas Crimp (pictured), professor of art history at the University of Rochester. Tickets are $8 for general admission, $6 for members, and $4 for students with ID. For more information, call 271-3361, or visit eastman.org. — BY REBECCA RAFFERTY 6 South Main St Pittsford This meditation group meets weekly on Wednesdays at 5:30-6:30pm.

Apple of his eye “Steve Jobs”

(R), DIRECTED BY DANNY BOYLE NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

The last time Aaron Sorkin delivered a story of an enigmatic tech visionary, we got the masterful “The Social Network,” about Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg. Now the Oscar-winning writer joins director Danny Boyle to take on the life of innovative Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, played here by an excellent Michael Fassbender. Despite the love that Jobs tends to inspire (Zuckerberg hardly arouses such passion in the general public), Sorkin nonetheless arrives at a similar conclusion: geniuses have a tendency to also be giant assholes.

Movie Previews on page 48

With “Steve Jobs,” Sorkin takes a page out of Apple’s playbook and keeps things simple, confining the narrative to three sequences that take place backstage in the moments before three major product launches: the Macintosh in 1984, the disastrous NeXT system that followed Jobs’ split from Apple in 1988, and finally the iMac in 1998. In the lead up to the events, Jobs interacts with the various crucial figures in his life. There’s Apple’s long-suffering head of marketing Joanna Hoffman (Kate Winslet); Jobs’ friend and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak (Seth Rogen, great in his first purely dramatic role); Apple CEO John Sculley (Jeff Daniels); Andy Hertzfeld (Michael Stuhlbarg), lead designer on the original Mac computer; and Jobs’ former lover, Chrisanne Brennan (Katherine Waterston). Brennan is accompanied by her young daughter, Lisa (played by actresses Makenzie Moss at 5, Ripley Sobo at 9, and Perla HaneyJardine at 19), whom she implores Jobs to accept as his own flesh and blood. It’s an intriguing way to structure a biopic, and a welcome divergence from the standard chronological summary that so many biopics take. But by its nature, it leaves a

lot out, providing little to no introduction to who exactly these people are and assuming the audiences already have a certain amount of knowledge of Jobs’ life. For those not well-versed in Apple lore, it might be helpful to watch Alex Gibney’s documentary “Man in the Machine” or to read Walter Isaacson’s biography (which serves as the basis for Sorkin’s screenplay) as a primer to fill in the blanks. With its narrow focus, the film sometimes takes on the feel of a stage production, and there’s a certain sense of theatricality in the way every important figure in Jobs’ life seem to converge so they can hash it out with Jobs every time a new product launches — Sorkin even has Jobs make a joke about it by the third time it happens. Jobs betrayed those who considered him a friend and mistreated those who cared for him, and for their part everyone in his life seem to love and revile him in equal measure. Sorkin underlines the connection between Jobs and the closed systems of the machines he dreams up. His products are deliberately designed to be impossibly difficult to open up and modify, characteristics that are equally true of the man himself. The ‘84 section is the best of the three sequences, buzzing with a sense of urgency as the major players work frantically to make sure last-minute preparations get taken care of, determined to deliver on the promise set by Apple’s infamous “1984” Super Bowl commercial — which debuted just days prior. Boyle keeps his typically ostentatious visual style in check, maintaining a fairly restrained look


It won’t always set you free “Truth” (R), DIRECTED BY JAMES VANDERBILT OPENS FRIDAY [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

throughout. He’s aided by Daniel Pemberton’s excellent score, which morphs to suit the mood of each sequence — from electronic to opera — while lending each section a sense of tension. Jobs spent many years denying that he was Lisa’s father, and it’s his relationship with the young girl that becomes the emotional through line of the film. His gradual acceptance of Lisa allows the cold and ruthless Jobs to receive a redemption. The last couple scenes in particular feel patently phony, and while effective, were clearly invented to give the otherwise unbending character of Jobs some semblance of an arc. And that’s in keeping with the film that Boyle and Sorkin clearly set out to make, which is less concerned about specific facts than in delivering a satisfying look into technology of our modern age while exploring the idea of Steve Jobs. As Jobs, Fassbender delivers a magnetic performance. Until the last section, he doesn’t particularly look the part (the iconic glasses and black turtleneck help) but he nails his essence. Prone to self-mythologizing, Jobs earned a reputation as a tech genius while largely leaving the real technical work to others. When asked, he explains his role: “musicians play the instruments, I play the orchestra.” Kate Winslet is terrific; the voice of reason, she keeps things from spiraling out of control, while imploring Jobs to behave like a decent human being and stop alienating everyone around him. “Steve Jobs” offers the first chance to hear the great actress take a crack at Sorkin’s banter-filled dialogue, and it’s as wonderful as you’d expect; the scenes between her and Fassbender are the film’s finest.

The gripping directorial debut of screenwriter James Vanderbilt, “Truth” tackles the story behind the controversial 2004 “60 Minutes” segment that effectively ended the career of veteran CBS anchorman Dan Rather. Fresh off breaking the Abu Ghraib story, CBS producer Mary Mapes (an excellent Cate Blanchett) is looking for a new story to add to her successful longtime professional partnership with Rather (Robert Redford, convincing despite his decidedly unRather-like golden locks). At a time when Bush supporters are running ads attacking the military service of John Kerry, Mapes receives a tip that leads her to dig into George W. Bush’s own service record, and finds information which suggests that not only were strings pulled in order to get him into the Air National Guard in order to avoid the Vietnam draft, but the future president was AWOL during his supposed time of service. A month before the election, it’s the type of huge story that could potentially sway the outcome.

Mapes puts together a team of researchers to assist in putting the story together, including military consultant Lt. Col. Roger Charles (Dennis Quaid), freelance muckraker Mike Smith (Topher Grace), and journalism professor Lucy Scott (Elisabeth Moss, sadly given the least to do of anyone). Though many of the players are unwilling to talk, the team eventually tracks down the seemingly incriminating information they need and succeed in uncovering a couple of memos that appear to back it up. But immediately after the story airs, conservative bloggers begin to question the authenticity of the documents used to prove the veracity of the story. With questions raised, sources begin to back away from their statements and the entire report begins to unravel. Smelling blood in the water, other news outlets pile on. CBS execs, wanting to protect themselves by launching their own internal investigation, essentially throw Mapes and her team to the wolves. Vanderbilt’s previous writing credits include both “Amazing Spider-Man” films and “White House Down,” but more critically-recognized, the journalistic thriller “Zodiac.” He’s got a knack for tossing names and dates at his audience while always making sure the information remains completely clear — he also deserves credit for turning debates about fonts and typewriter subscripts into compelling viewing. Vanderbilt doesn’t fully exonerate Mapes and her team, but shows how in the modern era of journalism, unrealistic deadlines and constant pressure to be the first to break a story inevitably leads to critical mistakes being made. He also rightly suggests the entire memo debate was a distraction from the real discussion the media should have been having; just because certain details of a story might not be true, doesn’t necessarily prove the entire story is false.

In arguing the merits of true investigative journalism and the importance of asking the tough questions of those in power, Vanderbilt’s screenplay has an unfortunate tendency toward preachiness, as it hammers home its points. And the less said about the screenplay’s cringe-inducing need to make a direct correlation between Mapes’ history of abuse at the hands of her father and her decision to become a journalist, the better — “I don’t like bullies” Mapes explains at one point. “Truth” is frequently tense and compelling, but in allowing its undeniably important message to be delivered in noble speech, it too often feels like it’s just reciting talking points.

Steady Stewards

63 Edgeland Street

The Homestead Heights Neighborhood in northeast Rochester was developed during the first half of the 20th century. It’s a quiet, well-maintained residential neighborhood, bordered by commercial corridors on Clifford Ave., Goodman St., Bay St., and Culver Rd. Within walking distance on these commercial streets are some of the city’s most iconic local eateries—Savoia Pastry Shoppe, Donuts Delite, and James Brown’s Place. The neighborhood’s sweet spot was home to Mayor Thomas Ryan when he served Rochester from 1974-1994. Around the corner from Mayor Ryan’s home, Edgeland Street is still stately with sidewalks, street lights, and mature trees. Number 63 is a wood frame American Foursquare, whose owners were also good stewards: they have eschewed commercial and decorative fads to preserve original hallmarks of 1926 construction. A friendly front porch presents to the street, yet the house is situated sideways, with its formal entrance at the driveway, where a gabled entry with Doric columns welcomes visitors. Overhead, the roofline features well-vented, deep soffits, adding grace while fighting ice dams. Inside the front door, an enclosed foyer is a veritable time machine, where gumwood and leaded glass surround the original white mosaic tile floor. A full-length beveled mirror on the coat closet door adds sparkle to this heat-efficient entry. In the ample front hall, a center-entrance layout presents the natural wood stairway ahead, an-

chored by a square-cut newel post resembling a giant chess game king piece. Overhead, an Arts and Crafts style ceiling light illuminates the unspoiled woodwork in every direction. To the right, the living room crosses the full front of the house, with leaded glass French doors offering private entry to the porch. Signature Arts and Crafts leaded windows flank a decorative brick fireplace and bookcase. To the left of the front hall, a big bay window brightens the dining room. The adjoining eat-in kitchen is tastefully current with high-functioning layout, today’s appliances, and cherry cabinets complementing the house-wide woodwork. Upstairs, the generous landing offers more vintage elements. Paneled gumwood doors open to three bedrooms, linen closet, and a walk-up unfinished attic. The master bedroom spans the front of the house, with ceiling fan and two windowed closets. In the full bath, bead board walls and original pedestal sink trim out a white mosaic tile floor echoing the downstairs foyer. Out back, a partially fenced yard, border garden, and two-car garage offer privacy with minimal maintenance on a .10 acre lot, allowing owners to savor the heritage within this 1,323 square foot home. Nothnagle’s Sam Morreale, 585-506-7820, lists this home at $79,900 with $3,000 taxes. by Melissa C. Hopkins Melissa is a writing coach for people with business, academic, and personal projects.

Fun [ NEWS OF THE WEIRD ] BY CHUCK SHEPHERD

Doing Time Right

In October, a Harvard University debate team (three-time recent champions of the American Parliamentary Debate Association) lost a match to a team of prisoners from the maximum-security Eastern New York Correctional Facility. Prison debaters “are held to the exact same standards” as college debate teams, according to the director of Bard College’s Prison Initiative, which coaches the inmates. Prisoners took the “pro” side of public schools having the right to turn away students whose parents had entered the U.S. illegally (though team members personally disagreed). The Bard trainers pointed out that the inmates perfected their presentation despite (or perhaps because of) the prison prohibition on Internet access.

Compelling Explanations

A black alleged gang member, Taurus Brown, 19, under arrest in Clearwater, Florida, in September for having a marijuana cigarette casually tucked behind his ear as he talked politely to a white police officer, tried to flee on foot but was quickly taken down. Asked why he ran, Brown replied (according to the police report): “I don’t like white people touching me. White people do weird stuff.”

Unclear on the Concept — The Merit Systems Protection

Board is (wrote The Washington Post) “a personnel court of last resort” for federal employees unfairly punished by demotion or firing — which is just what employee Timothy Korb needed when his federal agency suspended him in 2013,

allegedly for revealing at a staff meeting that the agency’s actual case backlog was much worse than it was letting on. Korb’s employer, ironically, is the Merit Systems Protection Board, and in September 2015, an administrative law judge upheld his claim of unfairness. — Philosophy professor Anna Stubblefield (Rutgers-Newark University) was convicted of aggravated sexual assault against a severely disabled man she was discovered having sex with on the floor in a locked office, but at trial in September, she testified that the man had “consent(ed)” and that the two were “in love.” The victim, 34, has cerebral palsy and other ailments, wears diapers, requires assistance for nearly all activities, is intellectually disabled, and does not speak, “except for making noises,” according to a brother. Stubblefield had been working with him on the controversial practice of “facilitated communication,” in which a facilitator reads a patient’s mind via subtleties such as eye movement and articulates the words for him. However, a jury failed to appreciate that facilitated “consent” and quickly convicted her.

Shameless

In rare bipartisan action, the U.S. Senate is preparing a bill to ban taxpayer funds for those military salutes at sporting events. Teams (the legislators believe) already benefit from the fan-friendly staging of heartwarming patriotic displays. (The Pentagon had paid $5.4 million just to the National Football League over the last four years.) An NFL spokesman, finally playing catch-up, said in September, “(N)o one should be paid to honor our troops.”

[ LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION ON PAGE 52 ]

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your emotional response will be unpredictable this week. Temptation will set in if someone entices you. Settling down may sound like a good idea, but the fear that you can do better will lead to playful action without commitment. Don’t worry: Time is on your side. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be looking for love and ready to give your heart to the person who shows the most interest and offers the best lifestyle. Your desire for quality will shine through, and you will vie for the attention of the person who can match your standard of living.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Problems will develop between you and someone pursuing you romantically. Giving the wrong impression or being afraid to be honest about the way you feel will turn into a messy encounter that can lead to arguments and forceful action. Protect yourself against jealous, possessive lovers. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll have plenty of choice and lots to think about when it comes to love and romance. Let your actions speak for you, and refrain from offering too much information regarding your likes and dislikes until you have the undivided atten-

tion of the partner you choose. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep busy and fill your days with new adventures. When looking for love, your best bet will be to keep doing the things you love most until you meet someone you enjoy doing all your favorite pastimes with. Unity and equality will seal the deal. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have a big heart and a lust for life. Get involved in events or check out people you find interesting or who practice a different lifestyle, and you’ll find ways to contribute to each other’s future in a positive and heartfelt manner. Obstacles can be overcome.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep your secrets to yourself. You’ll face aggressive action if you lead someone on unintentionally. Stay focused on what you want, and don’t flirt with fate when it comes to love. Unless someone meets your standards, simply take a pass and continue your search for love. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll have all the right moves to attract someone as unusual and passionate as you. Take on a cause or concern that irks you, and you will attract someone willing to fight by your side and support your efforts. A unique union will hold your interest and your heart.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’ll face problems in love if you can’t make up your mind or you refuse to share your true feelings with someone looking for answers. Altering the way you live may be necessary if someone crowds your space. Honesty won’t be easy, but it will be expected. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Socialize, network and make contact with people who have something to offer you mentally, physically and financially. Once you establish what’s available and how well it fits into your world, make a commitment that will allow you to build a solid long-lasting union.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may question how someone feels about you due to the lack of affection being shown. Take a step back and consider whether you are giving your heart to someone who fully appreciates you for who you are and what you have to offer. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have trouble being completely honest about the way you feel. Don’t try to be what someone wants you to be. Just be yourself, and if the person you are trying to attract doesn’t recognize how fabulous you are, you are best to take a pass.
