Welcome to Coconut Thai Cuisine & Asian Fusion!
by AMY MERRITT
went to Augusta for an Ultimate Frisbee tournament last weekend. On my way out of town I ran out of gas at the intersection of Savannah Ave. and Northside Dr. which is several blocks from my house. I walked a mile to Kmart in the dark to purchase a gas can, and returned only to find two police cars with their sparkly blue lights dancing like a strobe around my vehicle. When it was all said and done, and my car was finally revived, I was less than amused to find that my stereo system had crapped out. Nothing like a two hour drive by yourself in complete silence… If it were not for the noise canceling headphones I had carelessly left in my car, I would not have been able to listen to a band that Alex Pound, bassist of
Elastic Skyline, had recommended to me a year or two ago: Spiritualized. This is music best played through noise-canceling headphones, trust me. I kept having to remind myself to breath because it was literally leaving me breathless. At certain points, I couldn’t help wondering if I was going insane. If you’re a fan of experimental, yet extremely rewarding music, look them up. If you think it’s a little too spacey for you, give it a few more minutes. If the sound doesn’t grow on you, look up “Came Out of a Lady” by Rubblebucket or “Fire in the Oven” by Elastic Skyline on YouTube. They’ll be sure to put a smile on your face. See you at happy hour!

THE BRAWL FOR ALL-UCAN-EAT, PART II SATURDAY, AUGUST 27 AT 9PM - RYAN’S STEAKHOUSE, STATESBORO Tom Caiazzo – Contributing Writer kay Statesboro, it is 9:00pm on a Saturday night, your first weekend in town before the start of the Fall 2011 semester. It’s a little too early to hit the local clubs but you are still looking for some fun and you’re hungry. Well, you’re in luck! On Saturday, August 27th at 9:00pm, APW wrestling and RYAN’s restaurant present the “Brawl for AllU-Can-Eat II.” Simply eat all you want at a table right in front of the wrestling ring and watch sports entertainment at its finest for two and one-half plus hours. I suggest you get there a little early. As you head to the salad bar, you can’t help but hear the banging and clanging as they put the ring up. Later, as I ate some chicken, macaroni and cheese, and other great offerings, I watched for two-plus hour’s body-slamming, punching, and great wrestling from a ringside seat. All seats are about ringside! There was also comedy, storylines, and some excellent entertainment. When the Show was over, I left with friends to continue the night. It was the perfect start. If you aren’t doing anything on Saturday, August 27th, I highly recommend that you head down to RYAN’s and check out the Brawl for All-U-Can Eat.

THE BORO’S LOVE FOR POLICING CONSUMPTION On my way out of the City Council Meeting on Tuesday, I was thinking two things. After thoroughly lamenting the fact that I had just missed out on some dope happy hour specials at Gnat’s, I couldn’t help but think about how City Council has got a lot of work to do in regards to the city’s prehistoric alcohol ordinances. This very point has been made clear to me many times by many different people since I moved here just two months ago. However, it was made clearest to me by Mr. Kbob Kelly himself who spoke candidly, Tuesday evening at City Hall, on the behalf of the restaurant & bar community of Statesboro. Brian Kelly came to the meeting equipped with a twenty-three page suggestion for the reform of Statesboro’s alcohol ordinances. One hot topic was the price limitations put on alcoholic beverages by the city. During the meeting, a suggestion was made to enact pricing minimums in addition to the complex pricing limitations that are already there. That means, venders cannot legally sell a beer or shot for less than a dollar or so. “Pricing minimums prevent binge drinking,” members of City Council explained, “We want to prevent someone from going out and getting smashed on $4. It would also make it easier for cops to spot violations. They can just walk into a bar in regular clothes, and if they see someone buy 3 beers for $2, they’re busted. ” Kelly, whose bar is known for it’s pricey beers, had a different idea. He replies, “It’s a matter of Statesboro’s finest; Do we want Wendell’s guys wasting their time policing pricing restrictions on legally operating businesses? They ought to be fighting crime and combating DUIs. I just don’t think it’s a capitalistic way to do things.” Among other capitalistic debates was the question of the legal last call time in Statesboro, which is 1am. Kelly suggested moving the last call time back to 2am; thus, giving business owners the freedom to decide when to close their doors. He believes the extra hour will bring extra profits. This idea was met with apprehension by those who claimed that if the last call was to be made later, people would not come out as early as they tend to now. There appeared to me to be two resolutions that worked with seemingly everyone in the concerned crowd. First, that with many, or even most of these ordinances, it would be far more beneficial for Statesboro to look to State code for guidance and clarity on these important issues. Second, that we must enact Restaurant classifications with differentiated licenses. By classifying restaurants into: Restaurants (serve only food), Taverns (serve food and alcohol), and Bars (serve only alcohol) the city could eliminate the 50/50 rule (that all restaurants must have at least 50% of their revenue from food sales) which has proven to be nearly impossible to regulate and enforce in the past and present. I can vouch that the City Council is now informed on the community’s numerous issues with the alcohol ordinances. I have only stated a few here. I look forward to witnessing their progress, and writing about it here.

What do you think about Statesboro's current Alcohol Ordinance?
Other Hot Topics Discussed at the City Council Meeting • Investing in a system of electronic ID scanners that are linked to a national system. • Re-enacting or abolishing an alcohol ordinance committee which some have said to be responsible for making socially conservative decisions on a subject they know very little about. • Restricting servers by age (only 21 and up) and requiring them to become certified. • Fairer penalties for restaurant violations AMY MERRITT

Malia Imle -"What's the real issue? Because the public isn't even informed on most of these ordinances, I know students are in the dark. I'm a marketing major, and I can't help but notice all of the money our county is throwing out on alcohol revenue” Tori Williams - "The fact is they're taking our rights away with these ordinances. Plus, the city of Statesboro could use the extra income from alcohol sales! All of the other counties are enjoying it, why can't we? Rob Wilkerson - "We were just talking about this topic at the Downtown Development Authority board meeting. I moved here from Athens, and the differences between here and there are like night & day. There's a fear of change in this area, but the fact is that times have changed. The board would like to see the City Council lift several of the ordinances, but in past they haven't budged.

We have become a nation for the rich, by the rich TINA WHITTLE Statesboro resident, and published author
ne of the very first columns I wrote for this paper pondered the definitions of liberal and conservative (politically speaking anyway). I have always identified as liberal, but some very smart people I know choose to call themselves conservative. Whose approach was the most valid? I wondered. Who was right? So I explored some of the identifying markers, debunked some stereotypes, and came to my final conclusion — in the end, neither liberals nor conservatives have the monopoly on common sense. However, after witnessing the recent debacle over the debt ceiling, I’ve decided that I agree with economist Paul Krugman when he says that we have to abandon our ideas about political politeness and speak plainly. He says that this time there really is one group at fault — the G.O.P. As Krugman says in his New York Times column, “The problem with American politics right now is Republican extremism, and if you’re not willing to say that, you’re helping make that problem worse.” I’m not one for political name-calling. It wastes time and annoys the pig, so to speak. But the blatant snow job being performed on Americans right now by the

into the camera’s eye to whine about the extravagance of the presidential Secret Service bus on the one hand, then poohpooh the billions of dollars that would come from a simple tax extension on the other. Since when did one million become an enormous sum compared to seven hundred billion? Only in the ultra-conservative brain, apparently, where even math can’t get a foothold. And then — and this is the part that really infuriates me — Fox went on to list all the extravagances that “so-called poverty-level households” enjoy, things like . . . refrigerators. Like we’re not supposed to get offended at that. Like these people don’t really know poor until they’ve had to drink spoiled milk. No wait, if they can afford milk, surely they’re not poor, right? Ah, those tricky households of four making less than $22,350 a year — we see your cold milk! And your refrigerator that most likely belongs to your landlord! I’ll leave Paul Krugman with the last word. In his opinion piece, “The President Surrenders,” he writes, “What Republicans have just gotten away with calls our whole system of government into question. After all, how can American democracy work if whichever party is most prepared to be ruthless, to threaten the nation’s economic security, gets to dictate policy? And the answer is, maybe it can’t.”

The Eagles Have Landed; ‘Eagle Nation on Parade’ he first eagles for Georgia Southern University’s “Eagle Nation on Parade” have arrived and will soon be completed works of art that will dot the Statesboro/Bulloch County area. The eagles will add more artistic vitality to the community, while funding Georgia Southern University scholarships and research initiatives. The eagles are fiberglass structures that stand more than six-feet tall and depict the magnificent bird about to take flight. Artists will be chosen through an application process to paint or decorate the eagles, which will then be auctioned to raise funds. The artists will work to embellish the eagles during the fall semester, and the eagle auction is tentatively scheduled to take place in February 2012. “The ‘Eagle Nation on Parade’ project is a perfect example of how
Georgia Southern University and the Statesboro/Bulloch County community can work together to advance art and scholarship,” said College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences Dean Michael Smith. “Our faculty and staff in the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art have worked hard to make this project a reality. When it is finished, we will have magnificent eagles on display throughout Statesboro and Bulloch County. And, the funds raised from the auction of those eagles will go towards supporting student scholarships and undergraduate student research initiatives.” Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art sculpture professor Marc Moulton created the design for the eagles. A panel is deciding which artists will be chosen for the first phase of the project. The artists and their designs will be made public in the coming weeks.

GOOD VIBES Fast-rising rapper Yelawolf has announced that he will release his upcoming full-length studio album, Radioactive, on October 25th The first single from Radioactive, "Hard White (Up In The Club)," featuring Lil Jon and produced by Hydrox, is currently available via all digital retailers.
This is really happening. Lou Reed and Metallica’s collaborative album now has a release date, according to the elegantly titled website loureedmetallica.com. Expect to hear from the unlikely collaborators on Nov. 1 in the U.S. and Oct. 31 worldwide. This might be the coolest thing ever. On Sept. 13, Common’s memoirs “One Day It’ll All Make Sense,” will be released through Atria Books. After the success of
Jay-Z’s book of memoirs from last year, Common’s book is already getting big endorsements from people like Maya Angelou, who is featured with a glowing quote on the cover of the book. The book describes his life growing up on Chicago’s South Side and the trials of his coming-of-age success story that explain the man behind the “conscious rap.” Each chapter of the book starts with a personal letter sent to someone close to him, including frequent collabo-
SCENE rator Kanye West and ex-girlfriend Erykah Badu. To commemorate their upcoming documentary Pearl Jam Twenty, directed by Cameron Crowe, the band presented its fans with an online scavenger hunt, the purpose of which was to reveal the tracks for the accompanying soundtrack one by one. All in all, 29 tracks were announced, all rare recordings spanning every era of their career. Many of the songs are live versions of material from their blockbuster debut album Ten, which, not coincidentally, will turn 20 years old next Saturday. Originally slated to drop Sept. 27, muchhyped Alabama-native rapper Yelawolf has pushed back the release of his second major-label album, Radioactive. According to Hip-Hop DX, the official release date is now Oct. 25.The new date means the release of Radioactive will coincide with those of some industry heavyweights, notably Drake, Coldplay. It may sound surprising that wacky bass virtuoso Les Claypool’s flagship funkmetal trio Primus hasn’t come out with anything new in over 10 years—but that’s because in the meantime Claypool hasn’t exactly strayed from the public eye. Since Primus went on hiatus in 2000,
he’s immersed himself in touring with his own Flying Frog Brigade, starred in a multitude of supergroups (most notably Oysterhead and Colonel Claypool’s Bucket of Bernie Brains). This week, however, Spin announced that Claypool and company had finally broken the decade-plus silence and dropped a new single as a prelude to their forthcoming album Green Naugahyde. The song, “Tragedy’s A-Comin’,” is a lyrically apocalyptic funk-metal workout that’s very much in step with their heavy, dissonant style of the ’90s and proves that Primus still “sucks.” After much speculation, according to Deadline, Ridley Scott will be returning to an update of the 1982 cult classic as both director and producer. Although it did not originally fare well at the box office or the award ceremonies, Blade Runner is now considered to be groundbreaking science fiction film that went to inspire an entire sub-genres including cyberpunk and future-noir.

FRI 8/26: COL. BRUCE HAMPTON @ GNAT’S Col. Bruce Hampton has been making music since he formed his first band in 1963. The Colonel has been in constant motion ever since leaving a trail of memorable live performances with his many bands, including The Late Bronze Age and Col. Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit. Along the way he appeared in the movie "Sling Blade" as the poet and band manager Morris and starred in Mike Gordon's cult classic "Outside Out" as a mystical guitar 'out'structor. The Colonel's band features Nick Johnson, Duane Trucks (Derek Trucks brother), and Kevin Scott. Still rolling down the road, Col. Bruce continues his quest for the tonal center at each exit #6.
