Christians should act like Christians

The majority of the refugees from the Middle East are middle class. They don’t flee in the first place for economic reasons; they flee for their lives. Their home countries have been destabilized by our interference: the invasion of Iraq by President Bush and the interference in Libya. True, these countries were run by brutal dictators, but we didn’t study their history. We didn’t inform ourselves enough about their ethnic diversity and centuries of ethnic conflicts. We budged in without considering the enormous consequences. However, there is hope. Many of our presidential candidates call themselves Christians and surely will act like Christians? The Bible often talks about hospitality to strangers. Jesus himself was a refugee when his parents had to flee to Egypt. Would our Christian politicians have welcomed him? I’m sure our presidential candidates who call themselves Christians know the Bible and the Christian values of compassion and hospitality? LIEVE BAIN

History doesn’t support socialism

A wise old gentleman who is not a member of either political party but is a dedicated socialist is running for president on the Democratic ticket. I cannot agree with his principles, but marvel at his loyalty to his beliefs. In a recent speech he promised that if elected, there would be free medical care, free college for everyone, and jobs for everyone. We have only to look to several countries in Europe, 2 CITY

URBAN JOURNAL | BY MARY ANNA TOWLER

Guns cause these deaths

Once again, we’re shocked at the carnage, and we get teary-eyed over the pictures of grief-stricken students. And we send our thoughts and prayers to the families of the victims. That done, we’ll get back to our lives until the next shooting. Newtown, Aurora, Charleston, Rochester, Roseburg…. As President Obama said after last week’s shooting, this has become routine. And as he said, sending our thoughts and prayers isn’t enough. And as he also said, this is a political issue. It has to be a political issue. It’s not dishonoring the victims to bring their deaths into the realm of politics. We dishonor them if we don’t. But the more this horror goes on, the less we seem willing to deal with it. It’s as if an alien force were abroad in the land, striking without provocation or reason. We find “reasons,” of course. It’s bad people with illegal guns. It’s people with mental illness with guns. It’s not the guns themselves. I don’t know how long we can continue fooling ourselves. But we’ll keep trying, and finding something else to blame, anything but guns. If the early reports are accurate, the gunman in Roseburg seems to have had mental health problems. And so there’ll be more calls for help for those with mental illness. Fine. We do need to provide more help for those with mental illness – more funding for research, more funding for treatment, more medical training, more public awareness and understanding. But that’s not enough. And focusing on mental illness is an easy, cruel distraction. The vast majority of people with mental illness are not violent. As the president said, we’re not the only country with people suffering from mental illness, but we’re the only advanced country “that sees these kinds of mass shootings every few months.” The reason is the availability of guns in the United States. It’s also an easy, cruel distraction to focus on “bad guys with illegal guns.” Some of the most horrific mass shootings have been by people with guns bought legally. A high percentage of Rochester’s murders are committed with stolen guns that were originally bought legally. Many others were with guns that came from Virginia, Georgia, and other states with lax gun sale restrictions. And, by the way, while the mass shootings are horrible, focusing on those events can itself be a distraction. Because they represent a tiny fraction of the gun violence in this country: less than onetenth of one percent between 1983 and 2013, says a March report by the New York State Bar Association.

While mass shootings are horrible, focusing on them can be a distraction. They represent a tiny fraction of our gun violence.”

More than 30,000 people die from gunshots every year, the Bar Association report notes. And, says the report: “More than twice that number are shot each year but do not die from their wounds – some 66,000 to 78,000 people annually.” In the face of all that, are Americans appalled? Only kinda. A large majority consistently have favored things like expanded background checks, according to the Pew Research Center. But asked whether it is more important to protect the rights of people to own guns than to control gun ownership, we’re far more closely divided, with just 50 percent favoring controls. Some states have weakened gun control. And gun-rights advocates have continued to push insanities like concealed carry and the arming of teachers. There are lots of reasons for that, of course, the NRA’s effectiveness being high on the list. I’m glad to see Obama pledging to stick with this issue. And I’ll keep coming back to it in this column. But I can’t imagine that we’ll make much headway in this struggle until we change the culture of this violence-loving, increasingly angry society. That culture is showing up in politics, in elected officials who favor military spending over education and health care, fist-shaking over diplomacy. It is showing up in the public enthusiasm for swaggering, braggarts as candidates. And that, to me, is as scary as the mass shootings. It’s all of a piece, yes? rochestercitynewspaper.com

Eastman gets a new name

The George Eastman House is changing its name to the George Eastman Museum and will launch a new website at eastman.org. The namechange reflects Eastman’s core identity as one of the world’s foremost museums of photography and cinema, and the historic mansion and gardens of entrepreneur and philanthropist George Eastman.

School district exploring citywide Wi-Fi

The Rochester City School District has hired a consultant to study how to provide all students with Internet access at home. Roughly 20 percent of city students lack access. All city residents could benefit from a citywide Wi-Fi program, which would build on existing resources such as libraries and public facilities.

King replacing Arne Duncan

John King, former New York State education commissioner, has been picked to replace Arne Duncan, national education secretary and a key member of the president’s cabinet. Duncan will step down before the end of the year. King is a controversial choice; he is a strong advocate of the Common Core curriculum and charter schools.

Office space analysis out

News

A survey of downtown office space found that the East End/Upper East End, High Falls, and Alexander Park neighborhoods are the strongest in Rochester for office space tenancy. The highest vacancies were found in the Midtown District, Manhattan Square, St. Paul Quarter, and Washington Square neighborhoods. The annual report is put out by the Downtown Development Corporation.

New York’s state of decay

The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the state’s infrastructure a C- in a report card, but the score was padded by Bgrades on parks and solid waste infrastructure. The state’s roads got a D- and its bridges a D+.

SUNY Brockport was awarded a $1.2-million grant to study wetlands along Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. The college will work with a consortium of schools in the US and Canada to monitor wetlands along the shores of the Great Lakes. The collected data will be used to prevent wetland degradation and guide future wetland restoration projects.

GOP punts on microbeads ban The future of a Democratic proposal to ban the sale of personal care products containing plastic microbeads is uncertain. Similar bills have been passed in Erie and Chautauqua counties with Democratic and Republican support. Republicans on the Monroe County Legislature’s Agenda/Charter committee last week referred the measure to the county administration for further study. Previously, members of the GOP caucus said that the issue should be handled at the federal level. In the past, Republicans have referred Democratic legislation to the administration as a way to bury it. But occasionally the proposals re-emerge in an altered form, either from County

Executive Maggie Brooks or from a Republican legislator. And it’s starting to feel like the “re-emerge” scenario is the likely one; the county has cooperated with the State Attorney General’s Office to measure the amount of microbeads passing through Van Lare waste water treatment plant. Tiny plastic microbeads are used in toothpaste, soap, exfoliating face washes, shampoos, and other personal care products. They’re too small for water treatment plants to filter them out, so they’re discharged into water bodies with treated waste water. In the aquatic environment, fish and other organisms often mistake the beads for food — they look like eggs.

Researchers have found that the beads absorb toxic chemicals from the aquatic environments, including heavy metals and pesticides such as DDT. And once the beads are ingested, the organisms absorb those toxins, which are then later ingested by their predators. Lake Ontario has the highest concentration of microbeads of any of the Great Lakes. Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz, a Democrat, sent a letter to Brooks in support of the Dems’ proposal. He forwarded copies of the letter to the Monroe County Legislature, the New York State Association of Counties, and the New York State County Executives Association.

“If the state was serious about turning around failing schools, it would be mindful of the student population in those districts and provide proportionate resources to support the social and emotional needs of students.” [ ADAM URBANSKI, RTA PRESIDENT ]

EDUCATION | BY TIM LOUIS MACALUSO

Urbanski: school receivership is flawed The state education law that gives superintendents of the lowest-performing public schools the power to make significant policy and staff changes, sometimes without the approval of their school boards, is flawed, says Adam Urbanski, longtime president of the Rochester Teachers Association. Receivership won’t help superintendents, including Rochester schools Superintendent Bolgen Vargas, confront the challenges they face, he says. If the superintendents fail to meet improvement goals approved by the State Education Department, an outside receiver such as a SUNY college or university could take control of the schools. And that’s a mistake, Urbanski says. “It’s predicated on the assumption that outsiders know best how to fix our schools, which is false,” he says. Receivership is largely driven by the perception that teachers unions are standing in the way of reform. But Urbanski says that there are talented teachers in the challenged schools. “The main reason [the schools] are in receivership is because the district has neglected them for years,” he says. “They don’t have the resources.”

Earlier this year, State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia released a report identifying “struggling” and “persistently struggling” schools. There are three persistently struggling Monroe High School is one of the Rochester school district’s persistently struggling schools.

Ads on city property? Rochester City Council is considering legislation that would allow the city to sell advertising space on city-owned assets. The legislation may be voted on at Council’s October 13 meeting, which starts at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, 30 Church Street. A public hearing on the proposal will also be held that night, prior to the vote. Existing law does not allow advertising on city-owned assets that are used “in a predominately governmental capacity,” according to the city’s legislation. That means that City Hall and police and fire buildings would be excluded. The city would instead focus on selling advertising space at special events, in parking garages, and in “nonpermanent fixtures at cityowned facilities,” the legislation says. The purpose of the program is to raise money for the city. If the legislation passes, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren would establish a five-member advertising committee to implement the program. The committee would have representatives from the mayor’s office, law department, communications bureau, Department of Environmental Services, and an appointee by the City Council president. Companion legislation will also be considered by Council on October 13. And that is a proposal to hire locally based Normal Communications to provide marketing and advertising services for the new program. Normal would be paid a negotiated percentage of the advertising revenue it brings in.

DEVELOPMENT | BY CHRISTINE CARRIE FIEN

Inner Loop fill progress is evident One of an occasional series

It looks like someone has set up camp on the former Inner Loop. But the small white tents are actually containment units for asbestos abatement. Workers inside the tents cut the asbestos out of the pipe, and then remove the pipe in sections and haul it away. The tents keep the deadly material from spreading. The work is part of a three-year project to fill in the Inner Loop from Monroe Avenue to Charlotte Street, which will create about six acres of land for development and reunite part of the east side of downtown Rochester with adjacent neighborhoods. The project will cost about $21 million and should be completed by December 2017. The big mounds of dirt you’ve undoubtedly noticed on the site — the dirt has been hauled in from construction sites around the county — are gradually shrinking as they’re loaded onto trucks, dumped into place elsewhere in the project, and then smoothed by a bulldozer, says Stantec’s Paul Winterkorn. Winterkorn is senior construction administrator for Stantec, the design and engineering company that is overseeing the Inner Loop project. It will take about 135,000 cubic yards of material to fill in the Loop, Winterkorn says, and about 90,000 cubic yards of it is either on site currently or in place. (For perspective, a large dump truck can carry about 10 cubic yards of soil.) Piles of dirt will remain on the site through the winter, he says. The dirt is compacted by a roller and is tested daily — sometimes more than once a day — to make sure it’s compacted properly. The Broad Street and Charlotte Street areas are nearly up to grade, Winterkorn says. Sometime soon, crews will set granite curb on the extended streets to get the areas ready for paving. Underground work continues. The Broad Street bridge over the Loop was demolished, and new water mains, sewer pipe, and utilities have been installed, Winterkorn says. Getting rid of the detour created as a result of the bridge demolition is a priority before work stops for the winter, he says. Coordination is the most critical — and most difficult — aspect of the job, he says. Everything has to happen in a certain order. Crews have to complete the fill for the extensions of Broad and Charlotte streets, for example, before they take out the East Avenue bridge, Winterkorn says. And they have to open Union Street to two-way traffic before they shut down Pitkin Street. And there are often surprises to deal with. “Once you dig things up for the first time,” Winterkorn says, “it may not be quite what you see on the drawings.” Water mains or utilities, for example, may be at different depths or different places than you thought, he says, and you have to adjust your strategy accordingly. Crews will work as long as weather permits, he says, which will probably be until around Christmas. “After that, it’s anybody’s guess,” he says. “If we have a winter like last winter, chances are we won’t be doing much out there.” On an average day, between 12 and 15 workers are on the site, Winterkorn says, plus inspectors and crews working on the utilities. 6 CITY

Market fresh [ CHOW HOUND ] BY KATIE LIBBY

If you’re opening a restaurant that focuses on fresh and local ingredients, is there a better location than the epicenter for fresh and local in town, the Rochester Public Market? Gino and Allison Ruggiero didn’t think so when they opened Fiorella (5 Rochester Public Market), a new, casual, Italian eatery. Gino worked through the kitchen ranks — from line cook to sous chef to executive chef — before eventually ending up as head chef at 2Vine for over a decade. “I saw opening my own place as a natural progression; I wasn’t getting any younger,” Ruggiero says. The concept for Fiorella is to cook what’s available, using limited but quality ingredients sourced from local farms or from the public market directly. The menu features an assortment of wood-fired pizza, pasta, and antipasti with nightly specials throughout the week. Fiorella’s pizza dough is naturally leavened and made from New York State Mills organic flour, water, and sea salt only. The dough-making process is started days in advance and left to ferment, which builds a complexity of flavor

and is also easier on your gut. The pasta is made fresh in-house daily and used in dishes like the tagliatelle, Olga’s mushrooms (from Smugtown Mushrooms), egg yolk, and Cacio de Roma ($17). Also to keep an eye out for: The antipasti menu features a calamari Rhode-Island style (fried and spicy) with pickled peppers and garlic ($12). Fiorella has a small wine and local craft beer list that will rotate seasonally. On market days it also offers breakfast sandwiches and a breakfast pizza selection. “We’re both Italian American, and the market was started by Italian Americans,” Allison says. “It means a lot coming here.” Fiorella is located at 5 Rochester Public Market. It is open Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday, 11 am. to 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.; and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, call 434-5705, or go online to restaurantfiorella.com.

ow in its 23rd year, Rochester’s LGBT film festival, ImageOut, will present 38 feature films and three busy shorts programs in the span of just 10 days, from Friday, October 9, through Sunday, October 18 (but not before a Festival Eve Party at Skylark Lounge on Thursday, October 8, open to festival members and opening night film ticketholders). Unsurprisingly, the cinematic offerings are diverse, with a focus on empowering stories of LGBTQ individuals that also embrace our universal humanity in the spirit of inclusion. “LGBT film festivals are now beyond just bringing gay romance or coming-out stories on screen,” says Michael Gamilla, ImageOut’s programming director. “Cinema is such a powerful medium to educate. So we would be remiss if our films do not bring awareness to important social issues and serve as a call to action. I think it’s also important for our audience to realize that once they get past the sexuality of the characters they see onscreen, the stories aren’t too far off from their own experiences.” ImageOut includes non-cinematic mediums as well. Additional programs coinciding with the festival proper are ImageArt, with an exhibition of work by LGBTQ artist Sue Latta adorning the walls of Visual Studies Workshop through October 24; and ImageOutWrite, Volume 4, a collection of works by local writers speaking on the LGBTQ experience. As Rochester’s biggest film festival and the largest LGBT film festival in all of New York State, ImageOut also offers two mainstay film series: the Next Generation Series, free for moviegoers under 21 years old, which focuses on films about and geared toward young people; and the ImageOut There! Series, featuring left-of-center movies that defy tidy categorization. As part of its ImageOutReach initiative, all festival venues are wheelchair accessible, and sign language interpreters are available on request.

The five contrasting vignettes of “Stories of Our Lives” — all based on real accounts — were filmed in stark black-and-white, serving to underscore the gravity of the situations in which LGBTQ Kenyans find themselves. Featuring arguably the most unforced and natural acting performances in the festival, director Jim Chuchu’s storytelling has the matter-of-fact quality of documentary, but the poetic scope of meticulously crafted narrative. Two tableaux stand out in particular: “Run,” a direct and unwavering look at physical violence that threatens gays in Kenya, and “Each Night I Dream,” an evocative and beautifully shot


perspective on the very real fears one lesbian couple faces at the prospect of organized antigay political vigilantes. A project by The NEST Collective, “Stories of Our Lives” (in English and Swahili with some English subtitles) is a deeply touching film that brings the global fight for LGBTQ rights more clearly into view. (Saturday, October 10, 1:45 p.m., Little 1)

Religious antagonism toward LGBTQ individuals is nothing new. But what is life like for gay Muslims, who struggle with maintaining their devout faith while also acknowledging their identity? Written and directed by Jay Dockendorf, “Naz & Maalik” doesn’t necessarily offer a comprehensive answer, but it does provide a compelling snapshot of a day-in-the-life of the eponymous Brooklyn high school students whose covert romance is a source of apprehension and paranoia for the couple. It doesn’t help that the FBI begins profiling them for any potential links to terrorist plots. Of course, the movie hinges on the romantic rapport of the two lead actors, and Kerwin Johnson Jr. (Naz) and Curtiss Cook Jr. (Maalik) possess a natural ease and intimacy with one another that helps bring the tension between their two disparate personalities to the fore. (Saturday, October 10, 4:15 p.m., Dryden)

Director Catherine Stewart’s “While You Weren’t Looking” is a story about young

love. It’s also a timely cautionary tale that unflinchingly depicts the socioeconomic discrepancies between upper and lower classes that can divide us if we allow them to do so. Set in Cape Town, South Africa, we meet Asanda, the self-possessed daughter of a wealthy lesbian couple, whose chance meeting with Shado, a tomboy from the “other side of the tracks,” begins to blossom into passionate romance. But will differences in their respective upbringings and social statuses keep them apart? Bolstered by a confident performance by Petronella Tshuma as Asanda and Thishiwe Ziqubu’s magnetic portrayal of Shado, “While You Were Looking” (in English, Afrikaans, and Xhosa with some English subtitles) will give you plenty to think about as you leave the theater. (Tuesday, October

Director-actor Sebastián Silva’s “Nasty Baby” is an undeniably odd and slowly unfolding story about a Brooklyn-based artist, Freddy (Silva), his boyfriend Mo, and Freddy’s best friend Polly, who make a joint decision to have a child together. When Freddy’s fertility becomes an issue, Mo — thoughtfully

portrayed by a stoic Tunde Adebimpe of the band TV on the Radio — is thrust into the role of biological father. Meanwhile, Freddy struggles to develop a performance art piece in which he becomes a cooing and wailing infant version of himself, and the trio encounters a mentally unstable neighbor known as The Bishop (Reg E. Cathey, of “House of Cards,” in a pitch-perfect performance), with whom they have a series of increasingly problematic exchanges. As Polly, former Rochesterian Kristen Wiig continues to showcase the dramatic range and premium acting chops she demonstrated so brilliantly in “The Skeleton Twins.” While the chemistry between Silva and Adebimpe is nonexistent, the effectiveness of “Nasty Baby” as a deeply unsettling drama is unquestionable. Each scene seems patently orchestrated to make the viewer perfectly uncomfortable (in the best possible way), and the cathartic moment — with its bait-andswitch plot development — will surprise you. (Tuesday, October 13, 8:30 p.m., Little 1)

Named the “Narrative Centerpiece Selection” of the festival, director François Ozon’s “The New Girlfriend” explores the sometimes fluid connection between gender and identity with equal parts thoughtfulness and tenderness. When Claire’s lifelong best friend, Laura, passes away and leaves behind her husband, David, and infant daughter, Claire makes good on her promise to take care of the grieving family. She soon finds that David has long enjoyed dressing as a woman (albeit only in private) and has taken to putting on his late wife’s clothes and perfume as a coping mechanism. At first repulsed by this, Claire soon aids David in uncovering the woman inside — whom they call Virginia — and brought together by their shared love for Laura, their emotional bond inevitably deepens. Though the film contains a few clichés, in the service of plot advancement they are excusable, and the budding relationship between Romain Duris’s David/Virginia and Anaïs Demoustier as Claire resonates with a disarming sweetness as it unfurls. In French with English subtitles. (Wednesday, October 14, 8:45 p.m., Little 1)

Filmed with an austere beauty and aided by dazzling set design and costuming, “The Girl King” is a provocative biopic from director Mika Kaurismäki about the progressive Queen Kristina of Sweden (played with fierce dignity by Malin Buska), who governed her country for 10 years during the 17th century before abandoning her Protestantism in favor of

Catholicism and abdicating her regal position to her cousin Karl Gustav Kasimir. Tirelessly devoted to the arts, sciences, and the accrual of knowledge, Kristina’s reign was also marked by her resistance to marriage and her tomboyish manner — one might even characterize her as genderqueer. Contemporary scholarship suggests that the queen was a lesbian, and “The Girl King” advances this historical point with an allure that never minimizes the serious political implications of Kristina’s lifestyle. While the hyperbolic symbolism at the film’s turning point takes dramatic license to heavyhanded extremes, the biopic sheds light on a historical figure with whom many of us were likely unfamiliar. “The Girl King,” the festival’s “Spotlight Feature,” is certainly worthwhile (in English, French, and Finnish with some English subtitles). (Friday, October 16, 6 p.m., Little 1) The dark and moody atmosphere that pervades “Beautiful Something” feels like a character all its own in this sensual series of intersecting stories following the romantic exploits of Philadelphia bohemians on one particular evening. The all-male ensemble cast traverse the emotional territory of writerdirector Joseph Graham’s seductive yet gritty night environs with brooding intensity. Brian Sheppard is exceptional as the struggling poet and loser-in-love Brian, and Zack Ryan’s portrayal of the charismatic yet detached actor Jim is mesmerizing. Graham infuses his characters with singular vulnerability, pride, defiance, and sensitivity — and it is the poignancy these traits bring to the relationships formed, however fleeting, that makes this film sing. (Friday, October 16, 8:30 p.m., Little 1)

“Margarita, With a Straw” radiates empathy and respect for its characters in a way that is rarely seen in film. Co-directors Shonali Bose and Nilesh Maniyar’s story (in English and Hindi with some English subtitles) about a young woman’s path to self-acceptance is all heart. Kalki Koechlin is an absolute revelation as Laila, an effervescent if somewhat shy Indian

college student and musician who happens to have been born with cerebral palsy. The film follows Laila as she moves to New York City on an NYU scholarship, discovering the budding expression of her nascent bisexuality and developing a healthier self-image in the process. Unequivocally, on the strength of Koechlin’s performance alone, this “Closing Night Selection” is not to be missed. (Saturday, October 17, 7:30 p.m., Dryden)

The iPhone 5s used for filming “Tangerine” — directed by Sean Baker and executive produced by mumblecore kings Jay and Mark Duplass — brings a close-quarters, earthy vibe to the raw, sun-drenched Los Angeles streets where we meet best friends Alexandra (Mya Taylor) and Sin-Dee Rella (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez), two transgender sex workers who reunite on Christmas Eve after Sin-Dee’s recent stay in prison. While Alexandra goes to meet old and new clientele and promote her evening performance as a club singer, Sin-Dee sets off on a rampage to find her boyfriend and pimp Chester and the woman she is convinced slept with him. A well-balanced mix of drama and humor, the film eschews passing judgment on its characters in favor of an authentic look at the personalities behind the characters and the difficult realities they face. Ultimately, “Tangerine” is a movie about indispensable friendship, and from the outset, the bond between Alexandra and Sin-Dee percolates with irrepressible energy. (Sunday, October 18, 6:45 p.m., Little 1) “Coming In,” an utterly heartwarming film by Marco Kreuzpaintner, tells the tale of Tom Herzner, a young, openly gay hairstylist in Berlin at the top of his game, having staked his career catering exclusively to male clientele. In the interest of expanding his product line, Herzner begrudgingly goes to work at a unisex salon run by the quirky Heidi. As Tom begins to develop feelings for Heidi, it is uncertain how he will reconcile his professional and public life as a gay icon with his burgeoning new private life, in which he discovers a part of himself he didn’t know existed. The romance between a smolderingly sexy Kostja Ullmann as Tom and Aylin Tezel’s irresistibly endearing Heidi is charming to the utmost. While “Coming In” (in German with English subtitles) doesn’t stray far from the proven rom-com formula, the underlying message touts the power and beauty of personal connection regardless of sexual orientation in a way that feels totally fresh.

Cavalade’s new offering, “With Fervor,” isn’t ensconced in anger but an intensity that hints at a similar fire inside. By vacillating between major and minor keys — and even eluding both in spots — no two interpretations of this album can possibly be the same. It all opens with huge drums on the opening track, “With Fervor,” that thunder mightily until yielding to “The Chase Scene’s” gentle, exquisite guitar preamble. And speaking of guitar, the six-string work on this album is superior in its textbook twang and other worldly electricity. The vocals are plaintive and devoid of any unnecessary drama. The music has nowhere to hide. Neither does the listener.

The Andy Calabrese Trio. Grayson’s Inn,

“KDNY: A Compilation” — self-released on September 10 — is the brainchild of Buffalo Sex Change’s Phil Pierce, who produced the album as a fundraiser to offset the cost of his sister’s recent kidney transplant. “KDNY” is a wide-ranging, 16-track smorgasbord of mostly heretofore unreleased material featuring mainly Rochester artists. Amid the many compelling songs, there are a couple of standout tracks. On his cover of Buffalo Sex Change’s “Part Time Lover,” baritone crooner John Valenti (Passive Aggressives Anonymous) — that self-satirizing king of the chronically debonair set — offers up a dystopian dreamscape replete with atmospheric organ and background vocals that waft around like suave specters. Before Pierce and bandmate Clayton Eddy formed Buffalo Sex Change, they were in the Brooklyn band Crawl Babies, which resurfaces here to deliver a reverb-laden gem of rock balladry called “Touch That Girl.” The definitive highlight of the record, the song opens with the odd lyric “I touch that girl / Hosanna” before sprawling out into a gorgeous soundscape drenched in B3 organ sounds and the lonesome slide of an electric guitar. But with such disparate styles as shoegaze, folk, and indie dream pop all cohabiting, the album’s flow can occasionally be clunky — Shana Falana’s catchy, hazy, and hiphop-infused “Cloudbeat” preceded by MD Woods’ straight-forward folk tune, “Low and Behold,” comes to mind. — BY DANIEL J.

Music never been able to afford. A few of our favorite pieces are Universal Audio’s LA-2A, the BAE 1073, and a Tube Tech EQ based on the old Pultec models — which I actually physically touched for the first time a week or so ago in the room where they recorded “Pet Sounds” at EastWest in L.A. Crazy place. You’ve said “How Do You Feel Now?” discusses expectations versus reality. Discuss …

Joywave, which released its debut full-length album, "How Do You Feel Now?" last April, is now out on its first headlining tour and will perform at Anthology on Saturday, October 10. PHOTO PROVIDED

At the end of the signal chain Joywave WITH GRACE MITCHELL, MIKAELA DAVIS, AND KOPPS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10 ANTHOLOGY, 336 EAST AVENUE 7 P.M. | $15-$18 AFTERDARKPRESENTS.COM JOYWAVEMUSIC.COM [ INTERVIEW ] BY FRANK DE BLASE

If new wave were made of something more substantial, less-plastic, then perhaps you could call Joywave a new wave band. But with its layered pulse and drive as well as its lofty vocals over a lush electronic bed, this Rochester-gone-bigtime band transcends the quick answer and the lazy pigeonhole. In its relatively short history (est. 2010), Joywave has shot to the top with a bullet as it forged its own sound with several mixtapes and its 2012 EP debut, “Koda Vista.” Guest work with artists like Big Data haven’t hurt either: The Big Data tune “Dangerous,” featuring Joywave singer Daniel Armbruster went to No. 1 on the U.S. Alternative charts in 2014. Joywave has just released its debut full-length, “How Do You Feel Now?” on Hollywood and Cultco Records and is embarking on its first headlining tour this fall with a stop on Rochester to play for the home crowd, and a couple festivals in Europe. We talked online with Armbruster 14 CITY OCTOBER 7-13, 2015

at 30,000 feet somewhere over the Atlantic. Here’s what was said. An edited version of that conversation follows. City: You’ve worked a lot on producing stuff in the past with a MacBook Pro. But your new sound is bigger and more involved and created in a more traditional studio. What was the first indication this was happening? Daniel Armbruster: This is the first time

we ever had a budget at our disposal, so spending a good chunk of that on creating a more traditional studio experience for ourselves was a nobrainier. We actually decided to sign where we did (Hollywood Records) specifically because they allowed us to produce the record and build a studio. Talk about the studio you built.

The building had been a studio dating back to the 80’s, I believe, but in recent years it had been used to house equipment for some of Mastodon’s touring crew. We were really fortunate to get the building that we did in Rochester. The timing just lined up really well. Those guys were ready to give up the space and we were ready to take it on. We redid everything gear-wise inside the building. Only the exterior is unchanged. There were a lot of classic pieces of gear we’d always wanted and had used software emulations of but had

All the songs on “How Do You Feel Now?” were written between 2010 and 2014. I had graduated college midway through 2007 and found myself in this situation that I think a lot of people have experienced where you’re expecting to start your life and have the things that supposedly come along with an education, but they’re just not available to you. I began to accept that my life wasn’t going to play out like my parents’ had. I remember this project I had to do in 7th grade health class where we were supposed to cut out pictures from magazines that represented where we thought we’d be 10 years from then. We had to pick out a spouse, a car, a house, and a job. I didn’t have any of those things by the time I hit 17th grade. How has your sound changed?

I think this record is a bit more live than “Koda Vista” or our mixtapes. Really that’s a product of having a studio at our disposal though. If we had had the equipment we have now all along, a lot of those elements probably would have been present sooner.  How has it remained the same?

The end of the signal chain was still a MacBook Pro. What is the songwriting process?

It’s pretty straight forward. I do most of the songwriting; I’ll usually demo a song out, then Sean [Donnelly] and I refine it and produce it together in the studio. Some songs end up quite a bit different from where they began, some stay true to their original form. The demo version of “Bad Dreams” and the one on “How Do You Feel Now?” are almost identical. You’ve flirted with new wave in the past (with the band Vice Grip). Is that still the case?

I’ve flirted with a lot of people. That’s one of our favorite eras of music for


sure, but I think that we take elements of many different sounds and apply them in a way that conveys our story and fits our songs the best as opposed to copying something that already happened 30 years ago. When did you sign with Hollywood Records?

I believe it was the very end of 2013. Had other labels courted you?

We had an offer at the same time from a very small Brooklyn indie label, but we had talked to so many labels between 2010 and 2013 that we just became disillusioned with the whole process. I think we talked to someone from every major label at some point, but no one actually offered us anything until “Tongues” went up on SoundCloud and got like 100,000 plays or something like that in a week. That’s when everyone came calling, but it was a lot of the same people who had repeatedly told us “no” for years, so it was pretty easy to say “no” back at that point. How do you feel about embarking on your first headline tour?

Great. Headlining is a different animal, but it’s nice to know that you’re not preventing people from seeing their favorite band as the opener anymore. We did two shows with The Killers last year and someone yelled, “I’ll pay you guys $100 to get off stage right now,” before we even played our first note. I didn’t hear anything after that, so I’m assuming he spent that $100 at the Joywave merchandise table after our set.

BLUES | MARIA MULDAUR

JAZZ | IKEBE SHAKEDOWN

Maria Muldaur’s 1974 hit, “Midnight at the Oasis,” is fitting for her show at Abilene, seeing as how it’s our little roots-rock oasis on the edge of downtown. Throughout her 40 some odd years in the biz, Muldaur has shaken and moved through roots-rock’s myriad sub genres, including New Orleans jazz and blues on one of my favorite records, “Louisiana Love Call,” released in 1992.

This Brooklyn-based band’s music at times sounds like the theme to a 1970’s cop show that never was. I dunno, maybe it would’ve been called “Ikebe Shakedown.” It’s funky in a throwback disco kinda way, but doesn’t trade in substance for flash. It’s classic and new at the same time. I mean, these cats have laid it to tape at Daptone Studios. Get it? Good.

On Friday, October 9, author Patrick Montanaro and artist Justyn Iannucci will release the collaborative book “Dreams We Can’t Come Back From” with an intimate reading at Dichotomy Rochester (14 Franklin Street). This collection of Montanaro’s short horror and poetry with illustrations by Iannucci is the perfect usher for this, the spookiest of seasons. Montanaro’s sensitive scrawlings are the voice of an unwillingly wasted generation, trudging headlong through entropy into mad oblivion. These tales of numinous realities and dark verses read like incantations, raising the twin shades of wonder and horror. Within one story, the reader will helplessly witness a dark covenant and unearthly bargain unfold. In another, a world-weary student seeks silence and solitude to study in the tower of the school library and trips out of this realm, exposing the beastly bare bones of the universe. Through his writing, Montanaro brings to life the songs of reverie, myth, and

unsettling observation as they clash in meter and verse. With skillful suspense that plays on our most primal of fears, subtle terrors build into feverish nightmares, and haunted characters become more frightening than the most loathsome of monsters. Iannucci’s dark doodles and ominous illustrations combine nostalgic imagery with lushly dark markings to perfectly punctuate each bit of story. They claw at your subconscious and weave wormholes into the flesh of the page. The book’s Rochester-based contributors met in fourth grade, sharing a love of Egyptian culture and Pokémon. Montanaro wrote and developed the 2014 feature-length movie ‘The Dead Deads”; won the RIT 2014-15 Fiction Award for his horror short, “10,000 Pixies”; and will be featured in the January edition of the Genesee Reading Series at Writers & Books. Iannucci has created illustrations for Playboy Magazine, Fast Company, Complex Magazine, She Shreds, Cure Bar, and City Newspaper. The reading and reception is free and open to the public. For more information, call 732-5110, or check out facebook. com/dichotomyrochester.

wall. With nothing to do but look into it, I spied a convex mirror inside, and myself, reflected strangely down a worm hole. The concept of self-portrait comes to play in this, and other of Culver’s works not included in this show. Leafing through her thesis booklet, we encounter distorted glimpses of the artist in the bottom of foam cups, peering back through the tunnel like an alien observer.

“Warehouse Dance,” a mixed media sculpture by Cecily Culver, is part of “New Sense,” currently on view at Gallery r. PHOTO PROVIDED

Spotlighting the mundane “Cecily Culver: New Sense” THROUGH SUNDAY, OCTOBER 25 GALLERY R, 100 COLLEGE AVENUE WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY, 1 P.M. TO 5 P.M. 256-3312; GALLERYR.RIT.EDU [ REVIEW ] BY REBECCA RAFFERTY

A fascinating new show, recently opened at Gallery r, considers the world’s volume of discarded objects and sidelined creatures. In “New Sense,” artist Cecily Culver explores how the non-human world almost imperceptibly brushes against our own, and imagines the strange sentience of nonhuman experience. Much of the work is drawn from Culver’s thesis project, “Other Observations,” which is explored in a booklet provided in the gallery. “Seemingly mundane, yet entirely specific moments of urban-desert-life are recreated, capturing and re-presenting where a glimmer of other aliveness appears,” she says in the text. “‘Other Observations’ aims to ultimately highlight the noises, things, ephemera, and other beings that are active players in our world.” Culver’s go-to objects include ubiquitous white foam to-go cups, PVC drainage pipes, silvery Mylar balloons, the slippery presence of roaches, and slabs of concrete. Culver focuses on the background, upon objects, entities, and ephemera so commonplace, 20 CITY OCTOBER 7-13, 2015

they are the visual white noise of our daily experience, and are nearly invisible. For example, I walked past “Lid” twice before a nagging sensation resolved itself into the conclusion that the seemingly discarded garbage was in fact part of the show. Cast in bronze to resemble a tin lid crushed and wedged against the wall and floor, the golden tone of the object was like a beacon brushing at my subconscious, strangely signaling a desire for attention. Culver’s unlikely subjects symbolize what it

might be like to experience the world from an object’s perspective. “Some of her sculptural works recreate the undercurrents of daily activity: a life frequently closer to the ground,” says the provided statement. But how can we consider the semblance of “life,” found closer to the ground or in overlooked nooks? An elegantly curving section of a sidewalk and curb rests low against one end of the gallery, with weeds growing out of a storm drain, seeking light, and urging us to consider what dwells in the damp, dark below. This tactic is replayed humorously in “Warehouse Dance” in the next room. Jutting out low on one wall, a PVC drain pipe curves upward, with two pairs of roach’s antennae poking out of a cast bronze grate to explore the world outside. Much of Culver’s work is about the viewer’s imagination completing the picture. “I really want to bring the feeling of having to find the art,” she says. Another one of those easily-missed pieces is a PVC pipe standing upright against the

The strangest part of the exhibit is found in the darkened second room, where a drumshaped piece hangs on a wall. Indiscernible images are projected onto its circular, mirrored surface — I thought I caught trees and sky reflected in puddles, or the corrugated insides of a metal drum, but a glare on the surface made it impossible to tell. The work is paired with sound looped in jarring discord: the vibrato of low strings, bird song, and hissing static. Standing in the room, bearing witness to an experience more alien than that of other animals, gave me a feeling of subtle paranoia. And while there is humor present in the work, there is an utterly foreign feeling — encroaching on the sinister — to some of the works. “A kind of wonder emerges when we entertain the idea that the ‘stuff’ of our lives exist as entities in their own right,” Culver says. “An attentiveness to the on-goings under foot reveals that there are clearly non-human forces constantly at work.” Wonder abounds, and our understanding

of the impact of physical matter is low. Sometimes, dangerously so. These things are actively changing our ecology, Culver says. “From a materials standpoint: expanded poly-styrene foam, polyethylene (plastic), and polyethylene terephthalate (mylar), have the capacity to irreversibly alter our ecology. Although these things lurk and linger at every corner, they constitute the background noise for our human existence.” Scientists have recently identified worms that have adapted to consume our plastic waste, which on the surface seems to ‘deal’ with our overabundance of it, but not really. The broken-down bits will go somewhere — everywhere — changing the planetary organism. It will eventually “infiltrate every system and affect us,” Culver says. In her statement, Culver cites Jane Bennett’s book, “Vibrant Matter,” in which she asks “…would patterns of consumption change if we faced not litter, rubbish, trash, or ‘recycling,’ but an accumulating pile of lively and potentially dangerous matter?”

ART | “SUBURBAN WOMAN’S URBAN EXPERIENCE II”

Celebrating its second anniversary in its own space, Create Art 4 Good will host a new exhibit, “Suburban Woman’s Urban Experience II” for the month of October. A collection of women made from different materials, the exhibit will feature work by the founder of the gallery, Susan Carmen-Duffy. Originally from the suburbs, Carmen-Duffy uses this display to show her snarky comments about her appreciation of life in the city. The display has been showcased before, but this second edition is with all new material. Create Art 4 Good was founded five years ago with the intention of using art to make a difference. Each month, the gallery changes its rotating display to feature a new artist. In addition to giving artists exposure, with every sale of artwork, 20 percent of the commission goes to a charity in the community. The exhibit opened Friday, October 2, and continues each Thursday from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., with an additional date on Saturday, October 10, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. The display will continue through October 29. Visitors may also schedule an appointment with Carmen-Duffy by calling 210-3161 or emailing susan@CreateArt4Good.org. Create Art 4 Good can be found at the Hungerford building, 1115 East Main Street, entrance 5, suite 201. — BY OLIVIA LOPEZ

DANCE | “PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE”

Missy Pfohl Smith’s BIODANCE, Eran Hanlon’s Eran Hanlon Dance & Company, and Kerfala Fana Bangoura’s Mounafanyi will be among those dance companies performing at the University of Rochester’s “Past, Present and Future” presentation at the university this Saturday. The concert will feature work by these professional companies as well as that of dance alumni and current students. Both students and faculty will perform in a preview of dance faculty member Anne Harris Wilcox’s “When the Souls Rise,” a full-length work based on Halloween which will take place in its entirety at the college on November 6 and 7. Alumni sharing choreography will include Brad Orego, a Madison, Wisconsin-based dancer with Kanopy Dance Company; Nicole Zizzi, Sydney Robinson, and Lauren Sava, a trio now based in Boston; and Lev Earle, a genderqueer Rochester artist. The diversity of dance artists and styles in this weekend’s concert should make it well-worth attending. “Past, Present and Future” begins at 4 p.m. on Saturday in the Spurrier Dance Studio on the UR campus. Tickets are $10 general admission and $5 for students, and may be purchased at the door.

THEATER | “OY VEY, IT’S THE CALAMARI SISTERS”

The Calamari Sisters bring their shows to life through their combination of comedy and cooking. Their newest show, “Oy, Vey, It’s the Calamari Sisters!” tells the story of what happens when the Italian, Roman Catholic sisters agree to cater to an event at a Jewish Funeral home and they struggle to keep Kosher. The Calamari Sisters performances started when Rochester native Jay Falzone, with co-collaborators Stephen Smith and Dan Lavender, launched “Cooking with the Calamari Sisters” at the Downstairs Cabaret Theatre. The show has gained popularity and since grown within the community. This new show runs from Thursday, October 8, until Sunday, November 1 at the JCC CenterStage (1200 Edgewood Avenue). 2 p.m. on Sundays; 7 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays; and 8 p.m. on Saturdays (additional 2 p.m. performances on October 17 and 24).

High wire act “The Walk”

scornful view of CGI comes mostly from the fact that while it’s easy to pick out bad examples of CGI, successful effects are often invisible. The best examples are ones tied directly to story, adding a sensory experience to an already compelling narrative. Even something like 3D can — in the right hands — transcend the realm of cheap tricks to dramatically alter the experience of watching a film. Robert Zemeckis’s “The Walk,” for example, makes exhilarating use of the IMAX 3D format as it breathlessly recreates French tightrope artist Philippe Petit (played here by Joseph GordonLevitt) most daring act. There’s already one great movie about Petit’s stunt, James Marsh’s Oscarwinning documentary “Man on Wire,” but instead of feeling unnecessary, this film functions as a nice companion piece to that documentary. The 3D effects don’t just provide immersive atmosphere, but take us to places that wouldn’t otherwise be possible, putting us up on the wire right alongside Petit. “The Walk” dramatizes Petit’s

Greece Ridge 12

People (usually critics) like to opine about the proliferation of CGI and effects-driven films that saturate the multiplexes, and it’s true that a lot of these films (and by extension, their effects) are slapdash efforts that arise out of bloated blockbuster budgets. But that’s not always the case: used properly and with purpose, digital effects can be a useful tool for a filmmaker. This

real-life (and highly illegal) walk across a wire stretched between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. Petit narrates the tale, which begins in France. Detailing the performer’s origin story, Zemeckis goes a bit overboard on the whimsy in this section, presenting street scenes of Paris in black-and-white with random bits of color. We see Petit ride around on a unicycle, juggling and wooing a pretty busker named Annie (Charlotte Le Bon), and later learning the tricks of his trade by studying under a Czech acrobat he calls Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley). It’s all a bit exhausting. Petit delivers this narration directly to the camera while sitting atop of the Statue of Liberty, and while the device is unabashedly hokey, it fits in with Zemeckis’ tone of a fairy tale-ish heightened reality, and you eventually get used to it. Though occasionally putting us inside Petit’s headspace, the constant narration has a tendency toward hand-holding, spelling out the emotional temperature of the each scene we’re watching. Things pick up considerably once Petit travels to New York to stage “the coup,” as he refers to it. Zemeckis’ digital effects recreate an immaculate portrait of 1970’s New York City, and he stages the action as a heist, with Petit rounding up a team to help him pull off his daredevil scheme. Standouts of the crew include a photographer named J.P. (James Badge Dale) and shy Jeff (César Domboy), who wants adventure but happens to be afraid of heights.

Contrary views “The Martian” DIRECTED BY RIDLEY SCOTT NOW PLAYING

“Sicario” (R), DIRECTED BY DENIS VILLENEUVE NOW PLAYING [ REVIEW ] BY ADAM LUBITOW

Together they help sneak the necessary equipment into the building and past security while working out the many problems that arise along the way. As you might expect, the film’s centerpiece is the extended sequence documenting Petit’s walk across the wire, and it is legitimately breathtaking (I admit that I caught myself holding my breath during much of the sequence). Containing moments of unbelievable beauty, it’s as pure a distillation of movie magic as you can get. It even leads to a relatively subtle and moving elegy to the Towers themselves, acknowledging their ultimately sad place in our country’s history. Gordon-Levitt’s performance is quite good; yes, he lays it on pretty thick with the accent, but he captures Petit’s manic intensity and flair for the theatrical. He’s perhaps even better during the actual walk: often without dialogue, he expresses every bit of the exhilaration and joy Petit is feeling. Zemeckis has always enjoyed melding his narratives to the latest special effects techniques, and “The Walk” is no different. The film was released in IMAX 3D last Friday, and expands to traditional theaters this week. But if you’re going to see the movie, it’s worth springing for the additional cost. Though I’d caution that if heights aren’t your thing, it might be a good idea to skip this movie: You absolutely feel as though you are suspended 110 stories above the streets of New York City, about to step into the void.

At a time when the general populace seems to be growing more and more distrustful of science and the term “intellectual” is thrown around as an insult, a film like “The Martian” may hold the potential to tip the scales back in science’s favor. Committed to making the science half of their science-fiction tale feel as real as possible, director Ridley Scott and screenwriter Drew Goddard (“Cabin in the Woods”) focus on the technical details, delivering an ode to human ingenuity and smarts wrapped in an entertaining survival adventure tale. Demonstrating the power of problem solving and making science and math look cool, “The Martian” is in many ways the aspirational film “Tomorrowland” hoped to be. Based on Andy Weir’s best-selling novel, “The Martian” finds Matt Damon playing Mark Watney, an astronaut inadvertently left behind and believed to be dead after a NASA exploration mission to Mars goes awry. Stranded on an inhospitable planet,

Watney must improvise to survive, calling upon his skills as a botanist to come up with ways to provide himself with food (potatoes prove crucial), water, and oxygen to survive. He must also somehow contact NASA, knowing that even if he succeeds, it may be four years before another manned mission can reach him. To make matters worse, he only has an endless catalog of disco music and “Happy Days” reruns for entertainment. As the nerdy Watney, Damon delivers a straight-up movie star turn; the character’s sardonic sense of humor makes him a charming and compelling hero. And while “The Martian” is mostly Damon’s film, he’s supported by cast of ringers. The rest of the Mars crew is rounded out by Jessica Chastain, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, and Sebastian Stan. Meanwhile back on Earth, we get Jeff Daniels as the Director of NASA, Kristen Wiig as the exec handling this PR disaster, along with Chiwetel Ejiofor, Donald Glover, and Sean Bean as the scientists and engineers searching for a way to get their boy back as quickly as possible. Offering the singular joy of watching smart, capable people do intelligent things, “The Martian” celebrates the best aspects of humanity, which is something we don’t get enough of these days. Even the plot’s inevitably predictable outcome doesn’t ruin the film’s effectiveness. With its hopeful message that however screwed up things get, by working together we can accomplish amazing things, “The Martian” tells us to put some faith in science, intelligence, and the human spirit. And maybe also disco music. If “The Martian” offers audiences a

glimpse of humanity at its best, “Sicario” resides firmly at the opposite end of the spectrum. Its story, about the drug war being waged at the US-Mexican border, offers a rather despairing reminder that wading into morally and ethically murky waters often leaves everyone covered in muck. We follow tough, by-the-book FBI agent Kate Macer (Emily Blunt), who specializes in

kidnapping and hostage situations. Inspired by a grisly discovery during a raid on a drug kingpin’s Arizona safe house, Kate volunteers to join an elite task force that will attempt to capture the people responsible. Led by Department of Defense contractor Matt (Josh Brolin) and his stone-faced associate, Alejandro (a magnetic Benicio del Toro), the unit’s mission is to “shake the tree and create chaos” in the hopes of drawing out the big players. Originally claiming to be headed to El Paso, they end up crossing the border into Juárez, Mexico, where US forces supposedly have no jurisdiction. Kate is the movie’s conscience, though it quickly becomes clear that there’s no place for idealists in the war on drugs. Her efforts to do the right thing are repeatedly stymied, and we witness her idealism get beaten down as her adherence to the law lands her in over her head. She (and by extension the audience) are kept in the dark about the true nature of Matt and Alejandro’s work, and we feel Kate’s growing frustration as she’s increasingly relegated to the sidelines. Blunt is, as always, wonderful. Kate is a tough character to play: she’s vulnerable but never weak; naive, but not stupid. Like Villeneuve’s “Prisoners,” the film was shot by master cinematographer Roger Deakins and as with everything Deakins points his camera at, it looks great. Meanwhile, Jóhann Jóhannsson’s pulsing score adds an unnerving undercurrent to the action. Aside from a subplot involving a Mexican police officer, which is manipulative and wholly unnecessary, the script by Taylor Sheridan is solid. It walks a fine line between making the general method behind the action clear while the specifics remain (deliberately) impenetrable. “Sicario” is nothing if not intense, and Villeneuve builds that tension throughout the film until it reaches almost unbearable levels. He takes what might otherwise have been a conventional drug thriller, and turns it into a moral and ethical horror film.

Timeless Tosch-built Tudor

347 Rugby Avenue

Fred P. Tosch, the son of a carpenter born in Rochester with the use of one eye, established himself as a premier design and construction developer—with a reputation for quality homes for middle class families— during the interwar years in Rochester. While most well known for designing and building complete streets, such as the street where this author lives, Fred Tosch Inc. was available for hire for anyone in Rochester who wanted a quality-built smaller home. Thus, in 1931 after being promoted to head of the math department at the new Benjamin Franklin High School, H. Carlisle and Evalene Taylor, with their two young children, contracted with Fred Tosch Inc. to build their new home on Rugby Avenue in the 19th Ward. The final design is a striking storybook style Tudor cottage, with a menagerie of bay windows, half timbering, corner porch, and leaded glass windows. A large slab wood door embellished with iron hardware and leaded glass gives way to an enclosed vestibule with a broken marble and black grout floor (a Tosch signature). The gracious living room with its central hearth flanked by leaded glass bookcases, stained woodwork, original sconces and elaborate curtain rods sets a grand stage. French doors open to the porch. An archway leads to the dining room, which is dressed to impress with a corner built-in, more original fixtures and bay window. The generous original kitchen is stunning with its plentiful cabinetry, textured faux-stone walls, fold-out ironing board, and breakfast nook. The kitchen has also been carefully updated with granite counter and

conceal drawer glides. The powder room, two-car attached garage, and basement stair round out the first floor. The second floor features four bedrooms, all with plentiful windows, closets, and original light fixtures. The large shared bathroom is a period showstopper with its rich pink tile walls with decorative banding and black trim, mosaic tile floor, and original plumbing fixtures in perfect working order. The large master bedroom suite includes its own private powder room. The attic is open and insulated, with a separate storage room over the garage wing. The large dry basement features a recreation room with fireplace, laundry and utility space, and additional storage rooms. Located in the 19th Ward, our city’s largest and most culturally diverse neighborhood, this 1,845 square foot home is a testament to quality design and careful stewardship. It is located in the Sibley-Elmdorf Historic District and is eligible for the 20% New York State Homeowner Rehabilitation Tax Credit. From the mechanicals to the windows, the current owners of thirty years have meticulously cared for this special, timeless home. For more information contact realtor Jeff Schuetz with Mitchell Pierson Jr. Inc. Realtors at 585-233-8588 and make this historic home yours for $115,000. by Christopher Brandt Christopher is a longtime Landmark Society volunteer and blogs about his own historic home at www.myperfectlittlemoneypit.com.

PlayStations and Xboxes, However, State-of-the-Art: A New York University Center for Justice study released in September warned that, unless major upgrades are made quickly, 43 states will conduct 2016 elections on electronic voting machines at least 10 years old and woefully suspect. Those states use machines no longer made or poorly supported, and those in 14 states are more than 15 years old. There are apprehensions over antiquated security (risking miscounts, potential for hacking), but also fear of election-day breakdowns causing long lines at the polls, depressing turnout and dampening confidence in the overall fairness of the process. The NYU center estimated the costs of upgrading at greater than $1 billion.

Wait, What?

— In a “manifesto” to celebrate “personal choice and expression” in the standard of beauty “in a society that already places too many harmful standards on women,” according to a July New York Times report, some now are dyeing their armpit hair. At the Free Your Pits website, and events like “pit-ins” in Seattle and Pensacola, Florida, envelope-pushing women offer justifications ranging from political resistance to, according to one, “want(ing) to freak out (her) in-laws.” Preferred colors are turquoise, hot pink, purple and neon yellow. — Actress Melissa Gilbert (a star of TV’s “Little House on the Prairie”), 51, announced in August that she would run for Congress from Michigan’s 8th

Congressional District — even though she is currently on the hook to the IRS and California for back taxes totaling $470,000. Gilbert, a former president of the Screen Actors Guild and member of the AFL-CIO Executive Council, promised that she (and her actor-husband) would pay off her tax bill — by the year 2024.

Men Are Simple

— Update: Five years after News of the Weird mentioned it, Japan’s Love Plus virtual-girlfriend app is more popular than ever, serving a growing segment of the country’s lonely males — those beyond peak marital years and resigned to artificial “relationships.” Love Plus models (Rinko, Manaka, and Nene) are chosen mostly (and surprisingly) not for physical attributes, but for flirting and companionship. One user described his “girlfriend” (in a September Time magazine dispatch) as “someone to say good morning to in the morning and ... goodnight to at night.” Said a Swedish observer, “You wouldn’t see (this phenomenon) in Europe or America.” One problem: Men can get stuck in a “love loop” waiting for the next app update — with, they hope, more “features.” — “Odette Delacroix,” 25, of North Hollywood, California, is a petite (86 pounds) model who runs an adult fetish website in which people (i.e., men) pay to watch her tumble around, bikiniclad, with “plus-size” models, up to five at a time, squashing and nearly suffocating her in “pigpiles.” “Odette” told London’s edition of Cosmopolitan that her PetiteVsPlump website has so far earned her about $100,000.

[ LOVESCOPE ] BY EUGENIA LAST ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your changeable mood and desire for something different will make sticking to one person difficult. Possessive partners will be attracted to you and best kept at a distance to avoid repercussions. Be straightforward with regard to your feelings, and avoid sending mixed signals. Honesty is the best policy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll attract a multitude of partners. Your practical, nononsense approach to life, love and happiness will make you stand out and appeal to partners who share your values and who are looking for the same things in life. Socialize, and you won’t

be single for long. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You face challenges when it comes to love. Trying to honor your word and keeping everyone who wants to share your life with you happy will have its disadvantages. You may have to back away from everyone who interests you and start again if you haven’t been honest about what you want. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Participate, search for wisdom, try new philosophies or attend a reunion, and the unique people you encounter will intrigue you. Listen attentively, but keep your opinions to yourself until you’ve decided who you want to be with and which life direction best suits your needs.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Share your thoughts and ideas, explore new territory and indulge in discussions with people who have something different to offer. Your desire to settle down will be easily detected by the right person. Enjoy interacting, and see who steps out on a limb to stand by your side. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be realistic in your pursuits. Everyone wants to date a model or movie star. If your expectations are high, it isn’t likely anyone will live up to your dreams. Take a closer look at someone who offers love, trust, loyalty and greater stability and security for years to come. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Sign up for speed dating or get involved in an activity geared toward singles, and you will attract interesting people who are eager to get to know you better. A positive change in your personal life is apparent, but it’s up to you to reciprocate. Don’t be shy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful how much and what you offer potential partners this week. The people you attract aren’t likely to be honest with you. Keep your encounters simple, friendly and within your budget. If you have to make a huge financial investment in someone, he or she probably isn’t right for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.

21): You’ll be torn between someone you want to be with and the person who wants to be with you. Avoid encounters with individuals who are attached to someone else. There is nothing to gain playing with someone else’s partner. The perfect partner will compliment your life, not hinder it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make sure you and the object of your affection are on the same page when it comes to commitment, finances, family and lifestyle. Deep discussions and the willingness to sign a prenuptial agreement will be necessary if one of you is bringing far more into the relationship then the other.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’ll be restless to engage in activities that offer adventure, excitement and plenty of opportunities to meet new people. Your playful attitude and willingness to experiment will be inviting to someone who normally isn’t eager to settle down. Find out what’s being offered before you proceed. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll have plenty of offers, but conflicts are likely to take place if you mix business with pleasure or you choose to get involved in someone who crosses boundaries at work or within an organization you belong to. Think twice before you jeopardize your position or your reputation.
