F FOIA’d again: Balancing privacy of gun owners and government transparency comes to Maine, igniting passions and sparking contrary actions by Republican Governor Paul LePage.

embracing radicalism

Extremism in defense of climate justice is no vice Excerpted from a longer essay, which you can read in full at thePhoenix.com.

I want to say a word for radicalism — for the role of the radical in building a movement to confront climate change, the most urgent crisis human beings have ever faced. I want to start with two scenes, and two speakers, who embody the imperatives, and the limitations, of the moment in which we find ourselves. July 26, 2011 Inside a federal courtroom in Salt Lake City, Utah, a 30-year-old climate activist named Tim DeChristopher is sentenced to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine for disrupting a Bureau of Land Management auction of oil and gas leases back in December 2008. Registered as Bidder #70, he managed to win bids worth $1.8 million for some 22,000 acres of public land near Canyonlands National Park — bids he had no way of paying. He had acted spontaneously, on his conscience, engaged in nonviolent resistance to the heedless new extraction of fossil fuels that are catastrophically heating the planet and threatening innumerable innocent lives. Weeks before his sentencing, DeChristopher told Rolling Stone’s Jeff Goodell: “I’m a climate-justice activist. . . . We want a radically different world. We want a healthy, just world.” But first, he said, “we need to get the fossil fuel industry out of the way. First we’ve got to overthrow the corporate power that is running our government.” He understands what that requires. “It will involve confrontation and it will involve sacrifice.” At his sentencing, standing before the federal judge, DeChristopher concludes a long, eloquent statement that spreads across the Internet and galvanizes a growing climate-justice movement: “This is not going away. At this point of unimaginable threats on the horizon, this is what hope looks like. In these times of a morally bankrupt government that has sold out its principles, this is what patriotism looks like. With countless lives on the line, this is what love looks like, and it will only grow. The choice you are making today is what side are you on.” A month after DeChristopher speaks those words, the largest civil-disobedience action in a generation begins in front of the White House, where 1253 climate activists are arrested protesting the Keystone XL pipeline, the project that would tap the second-largest carbon deposit on Earth. (Last Sunday, February 17, tens of thousands more converged on Washington to demand that Barack Obama reject the pipeline once and for all.) November 4, 2012 It’s the Sunday before Election Day, a week after Hurricane Sandy’s hellish landfall, and Congressman Ed Markey stands before a capacity crowd inside the Town Hall of Arlington, Massachusetts. Hundreds of constituents have gathered on 48 hours notice for what the congressman has billed as an “emergency meeting” on climate

change. Flanked by Kevin Knobloch, president of the Union of Concerned Scientists, and Mindy Lubber, representing $11 trillion in assets as the director of the Investor Network on Climate Risk, Markey displays satellite photos of Boston illustrating that huge sections of the city — like the entire Back Bay — would be underwater if Sandy had hit the Hub instead of New York and New Jersey. But Markey isn’t there just to talk about disaster response or building seawalls in Boston Harbor. He’s there to demonstrate his seriousness on confronting climate change, an issue that had until that week gone all but unmentioned in the election campaign and in the mainstream political media. “As the Minutemen responded, so must we,” Markey tells his audience, calling for an unspecified “bold plan” from Washington to cut greenhouse emissions and prevent future “devastation.” Global warming, if unaddressed, could lead to “events so horrific,” he says, that they could “dwarf” other catastrophes in human history. In his final remarks, Markey intones, with what sounds like real passion: “The American Revolution, it started here. The abolitionist movement, it started here. The women’s movement, it started here. The anti-Vietnam movement, it started here. . . . The Freedom Riders, going South in the ‘60s, they left on buses from here. . . . [Global warming] is our generational challenge. The preceding generations accepted their challenges.” I was at Arlington Town Hall that Sun-

day in November, and I had to wonder: if Markey was as serious as he sounded about climate change, what kind of “bold” action would match the necessity of the moment and his rhetoric invoking the grand radical tradition in American history? Certainly nothing that he or any other politician in Washington, including (especially) President Obama, has ever proposed comes anywhere close. Even the doomed 2009 “cap-and-trade” bill that Markey coauthored — the strongest, indeed the only, comprehensive national climate legislation ever to pass either chamber of Congress — aimed merely to cut emissions 17 percent below 2005 levels by 2020 (the same amount, as it happens, that Obama meekly pledged at the failed UN climate talks in Copenhagen that year). Compare that with what the scientific consensus, as represented by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, says is required if we’re to have a chance of stabilizing the climate: at least 25 to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2020. (Using the internationally recognized 1990 baseline, the Obama-Waxman-Markey target would amount to a roughly 4 percent reduction by 2020.) Those emissions targets are based on the IPCC’s most recent assessment, published in 2007, and its new report — due to be published later this year and next — is expected to paint a far darker picture. Global emissions are setting new records, currently rising roughly 3 percent per year. Around the time that Markey spoke in Arlington, the International Energy

Agency, the World Bank, and PricewaterhouseCoopers were releasing reports that would surely have been called “alarmist” if issued by climate advocates. (As it happened, the reports were barely mentioned by major news outlets.) The generally conservative IEA affirmed that at least two-thirds of proven fossil-fuel reserves must stay in the ground between now and 2050 in order to have a shot at keeping the global average temperature from rising more than 2 degrees C (3.6 F), the internationally agreed-upon “red line.” (In its 2011 report, the IEA concluded that unless a massive global shift to clean-energy infrastructure begins in earnest within five years — make that four now — we’ll be “locked in” to catastrophic warming.) The World Bank warned that we’re on track for 4 degrees C (7.2 F) this century — which it says is quite likely beyond adaptation, and “must be avoided.” The analysts at PwC, in a report titled “Too Late for Two Degrees?,” concluded that we’ve “passed a critical threshold,” and that we should prepare for 4 degrees, or even 6 degrees (10.8 F), this century, unless the carbon-intensity of the global economy can be reduced by an unprecedented 5 percent per year for the next 40 years. To put that conclusion in perspective: one of the world’s leading climate scientists, Kevin Anderson at the UK’s Tyndall Centre, has said that 4 degrees C would be “incompatible with an organized global community.” The US government’s draft National Climate Assessment, released in January, suggests that we’re on track for 9 to 15-degrees Fahrenheit warming over most of the United States within this century. Unless, that is, we drastically change course. It seems fairly obvious that the reason we don’t hear politicians, or the “serious” people in our media, talking (at least in public) about this situation — the true gravity of it — is that to grapple with this in any real way, to propose anything that would actually begin to address it with the necessary urgency at the national and global level, would simply sound too extreme, if not outright crazy. Leave fossil fuels in the ground? You must be joking. Why, that would mean canceling the Keystone pipeline! It would mean putting Alberta’s tar sands, the second largest pool of carbon on the planet, off limits! Who are you kidding? Be serious! (Nevermind that a group of 18 top climate scientists signed a letter to Obama last month urging him to reject the pipeline to demonstrate the “seriousness of his climate convictions.”) This is the reality — or the surreality — of the historical moment in which we find ourselves. At this late hour in the climate crisis, with the clock ticking down on civilization, to be serious about climate change — based, mind you, on what science and not ideology prescribes — is to be radical.

politics + other mistakes

_BY mA rc mewS hA w

How will you be remembered? In politics, it’s known as the dreaded “L word.” No, not “liberal.” Or “lesbian.” Or “lactose-intolerant” (although, a pro-lactose faction in Augusta has been pushing for stricter enforcement of civil rights laws to protect those who insist on drinking milk in public). The L word stands for “legacy.” In some sad cases, it also denotes a “lack thereof.” Which brings us to John Baldacci. The former Democratic congressman and governor is best remembered for leaving the state in a financial mess. After four terms in the US House, during which he managed to leave no lasting impression, and eight years in the Blaine House, during which he never quite grasped the concept of matching expenditures to revenues, he retired to an inconsequential federal make-work job and then became a lobbyist. As governor, Baldacci often appeared more incompetent than he actually was. Although, the more I think about it, the difference wasn’t all that significant. While many of his worst foibles can be blamed on a stagnant national economy, his persistence in believing that recovery was about to get under way led him into a pattern of offering spending plans that consistently proved to be beyond the state’s means. I can’t blame Baldacci for not wanting to be buried under a tombstone that reads, “An Optimistic Oaf With A Tendency To Blow Other People’s Money.” But the only way he could possibly change that impression is to do something astonishing, such as manage the 2013 Boston Red Sox to a World Series championship or negotiate a successful peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians or be arrested for appearing naked at the Democrats’ next Jefferson-Jackson dinner.

Sad to say, Baldacci is pursuing none of these goals. Instead, he’s considering another campaign to recapture his old position. He said he’ll decide by April whether to again run for governor. Republican Governor Paul LePage’s reaction when he saw a report on Baldacci’s plans: “I could hardly believe my eyes.” Asked by reporters about the prospect of facing off against his predecessor in office, the governor quipped, “Christmas comes early sometimes.” LePage owes his 2010 plurality win at the polls in large part to Baldacci’s inept performance, which convinced many otherwise-moderate voters that Maine needed drastic change. LePage gave them just what they asked for, thereby convincing many of those middle-of-the-roaders that they hadn’t meant for it to be quite that drastic. But polling numbers show that if confronted with the opportunity to oust LePage and return state government to the bad old days of Baldaccism, voters would likely decide there were some things worse than drastic. Nevertheless, Baldacci is seriously considering becoming a gubernatorial candidate because he believes that regaining his old office is the only way he can retrieve his legacy from the hazardous-waste dump where it’s been deposited. That’s understandable. Nobody wants to wrap up a career notable for its lack of highlights (and its excess of body slams on the bottom) by being perceived in perpetuity as an incapable dolt. But just because we can empathize doesn’t mean we have to sympathize. Plus, there are plenty of other ways to allow Baldacci to elevate his selfworth without subjecting the state to another round of his shortsightedness (let’s balance the budget by selling

the state’s liquor profits for the next decade to a group associated with one of my political pals for a fraction of what they’re worth) and cronyism (do you seriously believe that a Democratic administration would have pursued the corruption and lavish expenditures by Democrats at the Maine Turnpike Authority or the wasteful spending by Democrats at MaineHousing, because if you do, you probably ought to ease off your intake of Oxys before the delusions get worse). Instead of returning Baldacci to office in a vain attempt to redeem his good name, it would be far cheaper and less damaging to our fiscal health to erect a statue in his honor. Some noble work of art, where he assumes a heroic stance, eyes on the horizon, hands clenching an unbalanced budget, above a plaque that reads, “John E. Baldacci: His Vision Is With Us Yet.” Not obviously insulting, but also not entirely untrue. It could be placed outside one of the schools forced to close as part of his consolidation plan. Of course, LePage would have to be convinced not to have the thing torn down and moved to an undisclosed location. Maybe, it would be easier to have the governor appoint Baldacci to some position where he couldn’t possibly screw things up any worse than they are now, but could pretend his abilities had finally been properly recognized: warden of the Maine State Prison, director of the state’s Medicaid computer system, Blaine House butler. Or we could do the kindest thing. We could make sure Baldacci’s legacy isn’t a negative one by forgetting all about him. ^

Bottom feeders fa wide-ranging review of wrongful foreclosures by last month, federal regulators pulled the plug on

10 mortgage lenders at the heart of the 2008 financial crisis. the review’s failure isn’t just a crying shame — it encapsulates everything that’s wrong with our regulatory culture. the review set out to analyze the individual loans of 3.8 million americans foreclosed on between 2009 and 2010 in search of unfair practices. its goal: determine how much victims of those abuses should get in restitution. those practices included the infamous “robo-signing,” placing people in default who weren’t and improper cancelation of loan modifications — in many cases, misdeeds that led to people losing their homes. by now, we all know the story. We’re not talking about paperwork errors here, but felonies knowingly committed to cover for an earlier set of felonies. having fraudulently approved mortgages for countless unqualified borrowers, the banks found themselves saddled with heaps of toxic debt. in a blind panic to dump those assets, the banks, with utter indifference to the lives they were ruining, improperly foreclosed on people by the thousands — sometimes on a pretext as flimsy as a single late mortgage payment, sometimes with no grounds at all. the review was victims’ last, best hope for justice. but 14 months into it, with no end in sight and nearly $2 billion in fees down the drain, the office of the comptroller of the currency threw in the towel. Without consulting any of the more consumer-oriented regulatory bodies like the Fdic, it struck a shady, backroom deal with the 10 mortgage lenders — effectively destroying any hope of fair compensation for the wronged. the agreement scraps the case-by-case reviews in favor of an $8.5 billion settlement, with only $3.3 billion of that going directly to homeowners. that works out to — wait for it — $1500 per household (although payouts will range from a few hundred dollars to $125,000 based on the type of “servicing error” affecting the borrower). bankers rejoice! the settlement is a tiny fraction of the financial — never mind the psychological — damages their abuses inflicted on homeowners, and by extension the economy as a whole. For running over Joe public, they face nothing harsher than a speeding ticket. So why’d the occ agree to such a raw deal on behalf of consumers? the term “conflicts of interests” doesn’t begin to convey the inefficiency, bungling, and double-dealing that plagued the review from the outset. then again, what do you expect when the “consultants” hired to pore over a bank’s foreclosure paperwork are employed by the bank? yep, you read right. lacking the manpower to run the review themselves, regulators ordered the banks to hire third-party contractors. (this happens all the time — since 2008, 130 enforcement actions taken against financial institutions were entrusted to firms on the banks’ payroll.) left to their own devices, banks did what banks do. they hired stooges — firms with longstanding ties to the banks and who understood that telling the truth was unlikely to win them repeat business. the resulting review so grotesquely understated the extent of wrongdoing that the occ mothballed the whole endeavor to save itself any further embarrassment. Whether the review was just a spectacularly botched operation or a piece of political theater rigged to fail, it’s yet another indictment of the coziness of regulators and the banks. (did i mention that the ceo of promontory Financial Group, one of the firms reviewing bank of america, was the former head of the occ?) if there’s any takeaway, it’s this: for all the grandstanding about reforming the financial services industry, one of the biggest factors leading to the 2008 meltdown remains unchanged. as they have for decades, the foxes still brazenly run the henhouse. and until the coital clinch between regulators and the banks they’re supposed to be policing gets pried apart, the bottom-feeders who caused the Great recession will stay one step ahead of their just desserts. ^

Sink or Swim?

GroundfishinG in new enGland faces a bleak present and an uncertain future _b y d e ir d r e f u l ton As recently as 2008, Maine groundfishermen were feeling fairly optimistic. That year, scientists announced that the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank cod stocks, which had been close to collapse in the mid1990s, were on the rebound after years of rebuilding. Fishermen were understandably buoyed by the assessment. “People took that to heart; they made plans expecting higher landings,” says Robert Vanasse, executive director of Saving Seafood, a non-profit communications organization for the seafood industry. “Boats made plans, the industry made plans, the auction houses were all geared up.” So imagine everyone’s surprise and dismay when a subsequent survey (such assessments are performed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Marine Fisheries Service every few years) revealed that the 2008 projections had been off the mark. The stocks, it seemed, were no healthier than they had been. Fishermen were still having a hard time finding cod in the sea. “They realized that, in fact, they had been wrong,” says Jonathan Labaree, director of community initiatives at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. “It’s difficult to know, frankly, exactly why they were wrong. It seems as though they overesti-

f

mated the amount of fish out there because they didn’t really take into account all the information.” According to a NOAA presentation at the end of January, the 2008 study was skewed because it didn’t properly account for the weight of the sexually mature fish in the stock, the health and size of young fish in the stock, and the number of fish dying due to fishing activities. The revised 2011 NOAA assessment presented a much more dire picture. Cod stocks were in poor condition, rebuilding much more slowly than expected, and vulnerable to further depletion. Thus, at the end of last month, the New England Fishery Management Council — which establishes rules for small- and large-scale commercial fisheries between three to 200 miles off the coast of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut — cut the fishing quotas, significantly. Fishermen’s allocation for Gulf of Maine cod was slashed 77 percent; for Georges Bank cod, the catch-limit cut was only slightly less painful at 61 percent (quotas for yellowtail flounder and haddock were also reduced). On top of existing restrictions, these new limitations represent a serious constraint. “[M]any Council members expressed

Haddocks settling Maine?

fin maine well before the puritans settled

it’s possible there were human haddocks

massachusetts, according to Seacoastnh.com historian J. dennis robinson. in an article first published in 2003, he checks the surprising claim that four brothers from Scotland with the last name haddock may have come to the new World in 1610 searching for timbers to use for the english navy’s ships. a haddock family tale says the four spent a horrible winter in a rock-lined cave on the shore of the piscataqua river somewhere in South berwick. While no direct evidence survives, robinson puts together some good circumstantial information, including the fact that some early new england settlers lived in shelters that were at least partially underground. and there’s the tempting possibility that the haddock brothers could have been part of the failed popham colony that fell apart in 1608 and either never left maine (some persistent legends claim not everyone went home to england) or did go home and then returned to maine. _Jeff inglis

dwindling landings at the portland fish exchange, and elsewhere. Continued from p 8

their awareness about the serious negative economic impacts that will undoubtedly occur and affect the small inshore boat fleet in New England most significantly,” a NEFMC release read. “Many fishermen in this group have been historically dependent on cod and have already seen the impacts of decreased catches.” Meanwhile, environmental interests like the Conservation Law Foundation are calling for the NEFMC to shut down the cod fishery altogether to give the species a legitimate chance to rebuild. It is not a great time to be a groundfisherman in Maine.

Headed to oblivion

There was a time when cod and other groundfish (such as halibut, flounder, and haddock) were the lifeblood of New England’s working waterfronts. From salt cod to frozen fish sticks, groundfish has been incorporated as a staple in American diets for centuries. McDonald’s has used various species of groundfish in its Filets-o-Fish for decades; Alexandre Dumas once wrote that it would be feasible to walk across the Atlantic “on the backs of cod.” Things are much different now. Last fall, the US Department of Commerce declared the northeastern groundfishery a federal economic disaster. Where local groundfishermen used to bring in tens of millions of pounds of Atlantic cod per year, their catch has dwindled to hundreds of thousands of pounds. And according to the Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association: “In 1996, 188 vessels in the state of Maine took at least one fishing trip targeting groundfish. By 2010 this number had declined to only 52 vessels that left the shore to catch what was once the foundation of Maine’s fishing economy.” “We’re just headed . . . to oblivion,” NOAA’s Northeast regional administrator John Bullard told the New York Times in February. “There’s certainly reason for pessimism . . . We all have to change at some points in our careers, and fishermen are no different. So change may be the order of the day.” Indeed, several changes have already been put in place, and more are on the horizon. In 2010, for example, the New England Fishery Management Council established a new groundfish management program

“that gives fishermen a more direct role in making decisions about when, where, and how to fish,” explains NEFMC public affairs officer Patricia Fiorelli. In this system, groups of fishermen establish themselves as sectors, akin to a harvesting cooperative, “that allocates an amount fishing privileges to its members, based on the amount of fish or quota each member brings to his or her group.” The idea behind sector management is that giving more responsibility and authority to fishermen allows more intuitive and efficient fishing practices to emerge as alternatives to old-school, ineffective controls such as limiting days-at-sea or fishing areas. It’s too soon to tell, less than three years in, how the sector strategy is affecting local groundfishermen or fish stocks. There are some indications that sector management encourages consolidation,

with bigger fishing operations essentially buying out smaller ones. There’s also widespread concern about a provision requiring fishermen to cover the costs of at-sea monitoring. “Even without the drastic reductions in catch limits, our fishermen cannot feasibly afford their expected share of at-sea monitors, and it is vital that NOAA provide full funding to cover these costs,” reads a letter sent to Acting Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank on February 7, signed by all four members of Maine’s congressional delegation. This display of interest and pressure from prominent Maine politicians (which has already resulted in one concrete concession: New England groundfishing vessels that did not catch their full share last year will be allowed to carry over a portion of that quota into 2013) is a welcome development, says Nick Battista, marine programs director at

the Island Institute in Rockland. “The fact that the Maine delegation...led this effort is huge and it means they’re paying attention to this issue,” he says. The same letter called on NOAA to “invest in more frequent and improved stock assessments to help NOAA Fisheries and the Council . . . investigate the impacts of changing ocean temperatures, species interactions, and stock structure.” This gets to the meat of the matter: Science. “The largest overall issue is that there is not a lot of faith in the surveys and assessments,” says Saving Seafood’s Vanasse, pointing to all sorts of blemishes on NOAA’s record. (To this end, the Inspector General of the US Commerce Department is currently undertaking a several-phase investigation of fisheries rulemaking; the first report uncovered shoddy record-keeping, enforcement, and financial disclosures on the part of NOAA.) For one thing, “it’s just really tough to count fish in the ocean and do it accurately,” Battista says. It’s also difficult to quantify the effects of rising water temperatures and ocean acidification on fish populations. “Decisions have been made on the best science we have,” he says. “But the science isn’t good enough to answer the questions we have.” It’s important to realize that today’s struggling fish stocks are not necessarily the result of so-called “overfishing” — at this point, the fish aren’t even there to be overcaught. Many fishermen cannot even meet their (low) quotas. There’s more to this problem, they say, than greedy fishermen. “We need to start thinking about things differently,” offers Ben Martens, executive director of the Maine Coast Fishermen’s Association, which advocates for small-vessel fishermen and operates the Port Clyde Community Groundfish Sector. He supports a shift away from single-species management and toward ecosystem-based management, which considers everything from climate change to fish biology to commercial practices. As he puts it: “It’s not the cuts that are going to hurt us, it’s not having fish in the water that’s going to hurt us.” Even Fiorelli, of the New England Fishery Management Council, acknowledges that “catch limits must . . . take into account all of the uncertainties in the ecosystem: changing temperatures, ecological interactions, with other species . . . But while it is easy to state this, it is extremely complex and difficult to do. The ocean is a rapidly changing environment and we are struggling to understand its potential and limitations.”

try sometHing new

While better science and better gear might help (some experts work exclusively on designing fishing equipment and practices that help fishermen save money and be more selective in their harvests), the outlook remains grim for groundfishermen. You may be wondering: Should I give up eating groundfish entirely? The answer, according to the experts, is a resounding No. “At the end of the day, we still need to make sure that the general public is eating and prioritizing locally caught fish,” Martens says, encouraging seafood lovers to “try something new” such as redfish or pollock, which are currently abundant off Maine’s coast. By developing markets for these less popular species, we can help fishermen get better prices for their fish. And this is certainly in line with Battista’s long-term goal of oceanic equilibrium, which he thinks will come from “making decisions based on the future. The more fish we catch now, the less economic pain there is, but the more risk there is of not having a fishery in the future. It’s really tough to balance that.” ^

f Angelique Kidjo, at Strand Theatre, in Rockland on Feb 21. thursday 21 BENIN HERE | The soulful, soar-

ing Beninoise singer Angelique Kidjo, whose career began in the late ’80s as a sort of African contemporary of Annie Lennox and evolved to a genre-hopping international appeal, is a pretty significant name to be playing Midcoast Maine in mid-February. Fresh off a live album bearing the talents of Branford Marsalis, singers Diane Reeves and Josh Groban, and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, the UNICEF ambassador and activist’s show is rumored to be a sensational affair. Kidjo hits the Strand, 345 Main St. in Rockland, at 7:30 pm; tickets are $55. 207.594.0070. HEY SUBURBIA | From the burgeoning field of rock sociology, the writer and professor Ryan Moore, author of Sells Like Teen Spirit: Music, Youth Culture, and Social Crisis, speaks about the role of music as an instrument of social change. Moore is young, which should be crucial to understanding his angle, and should be plenty savvy with regard to the repercussions of the more violent technological shifts of the last decade.

Call 207.871.1700.

friday 22 DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN | To rest with the

terms jazz, folk, or roots would do a disservice to the hauntingly singular Portland band the ReveRie mAChine. Fronted by the bewitchingly talented Meghan

Yates, whose voice is equal parts Joan Armatrading and Joanna Newsom, the group’s late 2012 release Not By Blood is a mystical, intoxicating listen. Perhaps that’s why they get the otherworldly treatment tonight. Via the outer fringe label Eternal Otter, the Reverie Machine play off-trail at Zero Station, 222 Anderson St., at 7:30 pm.

Now in its fifth year, around 100 local musicians have been participants, and while they’re sure to have forged some lasting memories, timeless stories, and ironclad endorsements, the underlying appeal of the ad hoc rock fest is its ability to whittle all the bullshit of having a band down to one manic fantasy weekend of music, which is as close an approximation of what it felt like when we were teens in the basement. If this year’s class doesn’t contain people you know, it will undoubtedly include those moments of glory, apprehension, frustration, and joy you’ll find fondly familiar. 8:30 pm; $10 at SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St., 207.828.5600.

‘TOTEM’ Mixed media by eduardo Bertone, 2012.

Have ideas, will travel CRossinG the sea to Go Below the suRfaCe _ By Ken G R e e n l e a f The world is, as Tom Friedman has noted, flat, which doesn’t take much label-reading to ascertain. What have you bought recently that wasn’t made overseas? But place is place, and Madrid ain’t Portland. “This Flat Earth/Esta Tierra Plana” at Rose Contemporary invites consideration about cultural thinking and artistic exchange as it takes place at the personal level, distinct from industrial, commercial, or even diplomatic channels. This is visual art’s great value — it’s individuals who matter, not institutions. The message is the mediators, not the medium, and what we learn is, at its essence, conveyed from one person to another. “This Flat Earth/Esta Tierra Plana” is an exchange project among artists based in Maine showing in Madrid with a number of Spanish artists, and the same people subsequently showing in Portland. It was co-organized by Jeff Badger of Portland-based Tetra Projects and Madrid-based Rubicon1. The group of works appeared in Madrid at Embajadores con Provisiones in January, and is in Portland at Rose Contemporary through this month. For thematic as well as practical purposes the artists were asked to use the same size paper, A3, about 16.5 by 11.5 inches. They are more or less about a here-to-there cross-ocean idea, with a dash of thinking about colonial history and seasoned with them-and-us comparisons, but at the heart of the project it’s simply a fun thing to do that informs because it’s art. The works are done because the artists are doing what they like to do, and the content conveyed is secondary, sometimes purely notional and sometimes non-existent. The messages are encoded not so much in what is depicted, but rather in the personal experience of each viewer with each work. The people are, from Spain: Irene Blanco, Eduardo Bertone, Zuzia, Sabek, Ruina, Pincho, Zé Carrión, rHo, Borondo, Seann Brackin, Rubicon 1, RBN, Ciril23, Chylo, Toño, and Dingo Muto Perro; from Maine: Kyle Bryant, Kenny Cole, Colleen Kinsella, Carrie Scanga, Jeff Badger, Justin Richel, Irina Skornyakova, Kimberly Convery, Anne Buckwalter, and Cassie Jones. “Flat Earth” in this context means that the art world, and the ideas that drive it, is no longer confined to a locality. The old “Paris then and New York now” paradigm is gone, fled like the transoceanic steamer and its stickered trunks. While one can discern sensibility distinctions that might be characterized as “Spanish” or “Maine-ish,” technically and conceptually they could be from anywhere. The world is flat. There was a schoolboy canard in my youth that asserted that Columbus, while selling his India project to the Spanish court, declared the world was round, while others

f

‘UNE CATASTROPHE PASSANT À L’ATELIER’ Mixed media, gouache on cut paper and ink jet collage, by Justin Richel, 2012. believed it was flat. Not true of course: In the 15th century anyone with any sense knew it was round, although Columbus had underestimated its circumference and his error gave him courage. There’s a reference to the unfortunate admiral and his little fleet in the poster for this show, anachronistically appearing near a shoreline with a Maine-like lighthouse on it. The world after Columbus flattened out, but the technology for five centuries or so afterward put severe limits the transfer of ideas, goods, and diseases.

Travel and communications were difficult, slow, dangerous, and expensive. Today they are easy, fast, safe, and cheap. Thanks to high-speed communications and digital imaging, everybody can know what everyone is doing, anywhere. Galleries are much alike, no matter where they are. But there’s still an important reason for shows to travel. It’s not just the ideas that need to move. To really experience what a work does, you need the thing itself. One can detect the flow of ideas again

and again in “This Flat Earth.” There’s a taste of South Bronx street art, the collective (and international) energy of Fluxus, the occasional polemic and postmodern comedy. Some notions seem odd. An example is the circular reference in Zé Carrión’s “Hitler,” which seems to have been rendered from Charlie Chaplin’s anti-Hitler film The Great Dictator, using an American source for a portrait of history’s nastiest person, one who affected Spain’s civil war. Jeff Badger’s “Triumph of the Vanishing Point” deconstructs a house and its contents as they disappear into the perspective point that would have allowed it to appear real, as if Hoovered into oblivion by technical artistic demands. A different sort of illusion appears in Carrie Scanga’s “the Past in Perspective,” in which the railing of a platform, or deck, directs the eye past toy-like houses toward a distant horizon, charged with expectation. The inscription on Pincho’s untitled careful rendering of a heavy paving roller implies that unfettered, American-style economics will pave over the world, but at least will do it with style. In “Decommissioned” Kenny Cole updates roles of the Niña and Pinta with a Spanish submarine (the Siroco) that enters into an unspecified narrative that includes some arrows of direction, stacks of gold coins, and a child with a life vest grasping a tiller. Irina Skornyakova’s “Layers” reaches back to some of the foundational ideas of modernist art as articulated by Malevich. While not especially local to Maine or Spain, Skornyakova shows there is a universality to that line of thinking and still much to be mined from it. An attentive viewer will grasp pretty quickly there are a few lines of social, political, and economic commentary flowing through this group of work, but that is not where the show’s deeper significance lies. Visual art in general doesn’t do social relevance all that well, if for no other reason than its usual reach is from one individual to another, and, as with poetry, there’s not a lot of room for narrative or expository coherence. What is most likely to occur is a confirmation (or not) of one’s own views, rather than a keener understanding of the issues involved. There is a greater value here, though, and it lies within the personality of each individual voice. They may or may not be telling us something we need to know, but they are telling us who they are. It’s not so much what they say, but who is saying it and how they do it. We are making personal acquaintances across a cultural and geographical distance. Things are familiar, the world is flat, but location still matters. ^

LuLz, in PerSon horn and Ivory go analog, IrL, for digital points.

theater TesT flighTs BLack-Box reSuLtS Show SucceSS _ By Meg a n g ruMB L In g It’s an on-stage-off-stage winter in Portland Stage Company’s Studio Theater, where PSC has just launched its new Studio Rep Series, rotating between productions by three different companies: Lorem Ipsum’s If We Were Birds, Horn and Ivory Productions’ For the Lulz, and Bess Welden’s Big Mouth Thunder Thighs. In addition, during the dark nights of that multi-threaded run, a fourth company, the Seeing Space, mounts two one-acts billed as Moments as Inertia.

f

If We Were BIrds, Lorem Ipsum

The ancient Greek myth of Philomela is one of blood lust and sexual violence: Athenian princess sisters Procne and Philomela are separated when the elder, Procne, is given in marriage to Tereus, the warrior king of Thrace. Later, at his new wife’s request, Tereus sails to Athens to bring Philomela for a visit, but seized with lust, he rapes her, cuts out her tongue, and leaves her in the woods. Philomela and Procne enact a horrific revenge and finally, desperate, beseech the gods to turn them into birds. In Erin Shields’s harrowing 2011 retelling, she uses birds to present a Greek chorus of brutalized women both ancient and modern, in the unflinching If We Were Birds, directed by the Phoenix’s own Deirdre Fulton, in a devastating production by Lorem Ipsum. Fulton and her cast enact the story’s fraught relationships with breathtaking physicality. Early on, bathing and confiding in thin white undergarments, sisters Procne and Philomela (Ellen White and Heather Irish, both superb) have a fluid intimacy; they’re beautifully paired, White’s curves and coy, measured voice against Irish’s nymph-like frame and giddy shrillness. As a girl teetering on the cusp between child and young woman, Irish is arresting, slipping between myriad postures and gestures to reveal Philomela’s every volatile emotional shift, including her agony when their loving but patriarchal father (the excellent Corey Gagne) gives away her sister. Meanwhile, Procne uses the lust of Tereus (Nicholas Schroeder, also a Phoenix scribe) as leverage; the two slink around the stage in a dance equal parts eros and skirmish. As the warrior, Schroeder conjures Tereus’s lust — especially toward Philomela — as a frighteningly tangible, uncontainable force, his mouth agape as if in helpless thrall. Tereus’s hair-raising monologue before the rape (“It’s not me, it’s my blood,” he tells himself) is so coolly spoken, so devoid of accountability, that it’s terrifying. The rape itself, riddled with obscenity and throbbing with the

breaking down Still, stark, brutal: Lorem Ipsum’s If We Were Birds. chants of the bird chorus, is excruciating. The birds whose ranks the sisters will join (Karen Ball, Mariah Bergeron, Emma Payton Cooper, Amanda Huotari, and Lisa Van Oosterum) evoke both the archetypal and the particular, color the action with chirps and twitches (along with Emily Dix Thomas’s quietly melancholic cello), and build the tension with even the sound of their synched breaths. And in Shields’s most agonizing innovation, the birds relate actual accounts of women brutalized during 20th-century conflicts, tortuous monologues delivered with the stillness and starkness of bones. Both dramatically and rhetorically, Lorem Ipsum’s brutal but tender production is consuming. The nuances of its characters reveal how ambivalent and how culturally embedded their attitudes toward war and women, blood lust and sexual lust. By the end, even given the gods’ consolations of wings, expect to feel battered, numb, and sad. The story’s best recourse against the horror is to “Speak it,” and the sounds that come out of those birds’ throats are haunting: part song, part sob.

“for the laughs” — one might post or do something online. And “for the lulz,” indeed, seems to be the cloudy m.o. of one determined young hacker, in this cyberthriller by Ben Ferber (directed by Todd Brian Backus). Online realms, including blogs, Twitter feeds, and IRC (Internet Relay Chat) conversations, constitute the main “settings” of For the Lulz, the plot of which concerns cyber-attacks carried out by the hacker “poof” (Shannon Stockwell), and the attempts of cyber-vigilante MrJ (Eric Worthley), tech journalist Fay (Ella Wrenn), and ex-con hacker/professor Gale (Caroline O’Connor) to identify, expose, and/or shut “poof” down. Their fast-paced dialogue abounds in the clipped syntax of Twitter, technical explanations (DDoS, “freaking”), and the wild-west obscenities of the blogosphere (“Nice tits, cuntmuffin!”). It’s exhausting, but it does nicely express the thrills of online anonymity and alliances, as do its capable actors, who are energetic and quirkily comic. The larger problem with Lulz, as its characters “meet” online or on the phone, is that we really only ever have a shadowy — a virtual — sense of the emotional stakes. It’s difficult to emotionally invest in anyone: a fundamental dramatic weakness. Cyber-thrillers often succeed by juxtaposing the virtual and the physical, the text (often so limited, especially online) and the subtext beneath what a character says (or types). Some more play with these ideas might help For the Lulz ground its virtual dramas more solidly in the stakes of its actual world.

This new company presents two oneacts whose young, stubborn protagonists are trapped and static, as events surrounding them intensify. Sam Shepard’s 1966 Chicago (directed by Patti Anne Miller) centers on the expressionist, stream-of-conscious rant of Stu (Kelsey Taylor), who remains planted in an empty bathtub, spouting entertainingly profane marine fantasies, as his lover Joy (Amanda Painter, with knowing restraint) prepares to leave him. Taylor impressively sustains what is basically one long monologue (now play-acting a screeching, bitter old lady; now conjuring a beach filled with screwing sailors and virgins). He manages to break it up nicely, finding beats of affection and dejection as well as the high antics, all the way through to Stu’s rather pointedly symbolic (but nevertheless endearing) retreat from the water. Rather than a bathtub, the heroine of Antígona Furiosa, Griselda Gambaro’s Argentine riff on the Sophocles (directed by Lila Rachel Becker) is trapped in a triangle of strung-up rope and the inevitabilities of pride and Greek myth. Antígona (April Singley, fiercely) relates the tragedy of her death sentence and suicide with the colloquial, sometimes stooge-like narrative help of two men in a café (Hal Cohen and Adam Ferguson) in perhaps the 1970s. Straddling ancient Thebes and, presumably, the state-sponsored terrorism of a recent Argentina, together the three tell the story (Cohen charmingly re-enacting Creon’s ruling with a military jacket and a mannequin with a light bulb at its neck) and parse its themes of power, justice, repentance, and pride.

rock DreDging up the low Metal Feathers Net their best record yet _by Nicholas s chr oed er If you’re going to make huge structural changes, before your third record is a fine time to do it. Portland rock band Metal Feathers may now be referenced against their back catalogue, which much of Handful of Fog, their excellent and fantastically deep third record, makes sound like a profoundly different band. And they kind of are. The organ, employed almost emblematically on Statistically Marred and Contrast Eats the Slimey Green, is virtually gone. Its player, Derek Lobley, has shifted to drums, replacing the departed Althea Pajak. Whether that registers as a subtle or massive change depends on your familiarity with the band. Jay Lobley’s songs have always been mercurial. They very clearly split his allegiances between a virtuosity for hook-driven pop perfection and a willful self-effacement — some might say self-medication — that manifests in a flair for the erratic. This is a constant variable. It doesn’t change on Handful of Fog — and probably never will — but you might be surprised to learn how much else has. As a four-piece, Metal Feathers have rattled off songs as slick as Television, as whimsical as Guided By Voices, or as cakedin-wanderlust as late ’80s Sonic Youth. This trio version can hit all those notes too. But at its core, indeed from the opening spasm of “This Band is a Secret,” it’s clear that Handful of Fog observes a fundamentally different task. Its 12 songs bore into an interior that Lobley and co. have heretofore only winkingly flashed at their listeners. Yet instead of burying it behind a barrage of clever melodies, lo-fi orthodoxies, and studious displays of indie-rock historiography, this record uncovers it for all that it’s worth. Immediately, at least three songs might strike listeners as the best they’ve ever writ-

ten. The ballad “I Hold Her Up” is a sort of sickly-sweet sequel to Statistically Marred’s “Tough” (or, if you know your Lobley, the entire A-side of Cult Maze’s 35, 36) while “Rotten Cop” levies a muscular riff against the most naked display of pathos the frontman has yet attempted. In varying hues, they’re easily the most stirringly emotional tracks in the catalog, yet neither would prepare you for “In the Moon and Still,” a dizzying, rapturous composition as affecting and yearningly psychedelic as anything — no shit — that Dinosaur Jr. or My Bloody Valentine has ever done. This growth in sound is not a contrivance; there is evidence everywhere of band members shifting dynamics and gaining each others’ trust. It is pronounced in the bass lines of Jason Rogers, which make for some of the album’s most memorable moments, and it’s often marvelous to witness in the intrepid drumming of the younger Lobley. And while several jammier, disheveled passages can attest that this new unit is still trying to cohere, there are less tangible reasons to believe they’re tighter than ever. A good chunk of the album’s second act puts this on display. The fleet “Witch Tricks” is like Garage Rock 101, and “Sparkle Motorcycle” spills a guitar squall onto some particularly spirited drumming. Jay makes like Zoot Horn Rollo on the six-string interlude “Of Human Bandages,” and the jigsaw diptych “West End Blackout/ The End of ‘Chains’” is a gorgeous piece of fuck-it sonic bricolage, on par with the sort of slapdash brilliance found in late Paul Westerberg. To say Metal Feathers are the best band in Portland would not be incorrect. And this is — though it may take a bit to determine — their best album. If the sort of thing means anything to you, it’s probably the most thoughtful, inhabitable break-up record by a local rock band since Zootz closed. As with their other albums, it makes a fantastic argument for the creative virtues of lo-fi production, often using noise, samples, and even static as poetic illustrations. But to these jaded ears, the reason it could be a mighty record is in what it manages to dredge up about the human condition, particularly in regard to trust, familiarity, and human error. It may be a long way to the bottom, but the water is warmer than ever. ^

While past installments have proved flawed, Bandcamp makes quickie features easy to distribute and consume.

CALL It A pLACehoLder

a firSt SamPler from the new lorem iPSum label

It’s been a while since Portland had itself a bona fide new label, something more than just a vanity title for a band’s self-released album. It makes sense, considering the fracturing nature of the music industry in general and the ease with which independent artists can record and release music nowadays. What’s a label even good for? Well, for the artist, it can help with some of the details that tend to elude musicians, like PR and getting set up with services like iTunes and Bandcamp. But for the listener, the best of labels can serve as a filter. What with the firehose of music we’re presented with today, it can be nice if a label shows itself to have a taste that’s compatible with yours and that you can trust. Portland’s Eternal Otter is consistently on target with its releases, which tend to be dead serious and somewhat lo-fi, lending themselves to vinyl reproduction. Cornmeal carries Portland’s alt-country torch. There was a time when it looked like Pigeon Records might be our East Coast Jagjaguar, though it’s mostly now in hibernation. What will be Lorem Ipsum Recordings’ hallmark? Judging by the new label’s first seven-song sampler, they’ll be grabbing the baton from Cat and Mouse Records (Dead End Armory, Travis Cyr, Frank Hopkins, Anna’s Ghost, Dead Man’s Clothes, etc.), which put out its second annual compilation in 2007 and now lays dormant (and now I’m remembering Acoustic Coffee fondly — no one’s really stepped in to fill that gap, have they?). Available for pay-what-you-want download on Bandcamp, From Lorem, with Love (Volume 1) features a song each from every band on the label and promises to be quarterly.

We’ll see about that. Many of us remember the good idea that was the Gigaphone Record in the early 2000s and how that musical periodical turned out to be too much of a grind to keep up with. Things are different now, though. No longer would you ever dream of sending someone a CD in the mail every three months, and the likes of Bandcamp makes these kinds of quickie features incredibly easy to distribute and consume. They also can, at their best, provide great insight into artist development and how albums come to be. One of the tracks here is label proprietor Erik Neilson’s demo version of “The Fear,” essentially just vocals and acoustic guitar and lots of reverb, tape hiss, and string squeak. Compare that to the full song offered by Neilson’s band, Rural Ghosts, and you start wondering where the song will go. “Eyes” features a warm bowed bass in the open with electric guitar and skittering drums with a forward beat like Radiohead. It’s not quite Peter Murphy’s “Cuts You Up,” but the bass is active and drives the melody while a xylophone elbows in at the midway point. Why that instrumentation and arrangement? Such is the songwriter’s job, but there’s much more opportunity for the listener to peek into the workspace nowadays. Not only Portland workspaces, either. Young Readers, actually just a single guy named Steven Silva, open the compilation and are based in Oklahoma. It’s a slow acoustic guitar piece, until “All I Have” brings in cello and fiddle in opposing channels and the vocals double up and eventually become a soaring chorus: “I’ll be fine/Without a fancy house I will get by/If all I have/Is you.”

FiLL in the bLanks rural Ghosts are among those on the new sampler. These kinds of samplers can also serve to introduce us to brand-new bands worth following, like Brett & Lean, a duo who are completely new to me (and the Internet, as far as I can tell), with voices that sit wonderfully side by side in the mix, and a hint of Ian & Sylvia to their writing style. Indre Styrke are also just about brand-spanking, supplying here a blend of slo-core electronica and classic-rock electric guitar, doing nicely with a paucity of notes. Finally, Whit Walker and Oliver Waterman show themselves to be a pair of talents worth keeping an eye on. Walker’s “Momma Wanna Hold Yer Hand” has a repeating call and response of the title phrase, accompanied by a jangling tambourine that keeps things Haight-Ashbury in the open before getting more folksy

with the addition of a squeezebox. The organization here is pretty interesting. Waterman is more psychedelic, like early Genesis spinning out a seven-minute-plus song full of buzzing electric guitar played in halting phrases and dramatic vocals that leave him gasping for breath. Is there a cohesive aesthetic here? I think you’ll find it in the mix of indie sentiment and organic instrumentation and arrangement. There’s something throwback in what Lorem Ipsum is doing, reminiscent of four tracks in living rooms with oriental rugs on the floor. How suited that is to this new-age all-electronic delivery system. ^

Species of local rockfish F of all the bands honoring the working-class folk traditions of the maine coastline, few come as hardy as the longstanding eclectic acoustic unit the hoLy MackereLs. named after one of the fattiest and most nutritious of groundfish, the group released a new record this winter titled Don’t Take Too Many of Them to Make a Dozen, a smart, quirky, and earnest blast of blues-folk from the midcoast. they play as a duo and four-piece at some of the saltiest pubs in the boothbay region; seek out their jams at webtonemusic.50megs.com.

Saint Solitude

Tuna Boots, the six-song debut ep by Leaves Leaves. the foursome cook up a charred filet of post-punk pop magic — an onslaught of hot-rock ideas held in check by a strategically low-ceiling production effort. in other words, this is portland’s version of shitwave, if we’re still calling that a genre, and it sounds great. dive in at leavesleavesband.bandcamp.com, or see them open for MetaL Feathers’ record release show Feb 22 at mayo Street arts. F this year should bring two new records by saint soLitude, the reflective and shimmering pop project of brunswick native dup crosson,

who recently left the indie-mecca of asheville, north carolina, to return home. to go with the new environs, crosson’s reportedly been revisiting some musical inspirations, augmenting his distinctive nod to Sunny day real estate with a recent immersion into old ’50s soul records and some cues from Spacemen 3 and nick cave. another smart move: the new Saint Solitude stuff marks a return to recording on analog tape. how toasty! While crosson paddles through these old and oddly familiar waters, you might spend some time with his 2011 record, By Some Great Storm, at saintsolitude.bandcamp.com.

TasTing whaT’s lefT these fish really are delicious, if scarce _By Bria n duf f Every culture has its totemic animal, anthropologists suggest, and ours here in Maine might just be the groundfish. These fish are not only important to our economy, but as our totem they represent our spirit. So it is appropriate that back when cod and other groundfish ran thick on our coast we New Englanders dazzled the world, and now as these fish populations collapse, we Mainers have receded as well. In times of struggle the totem is often sacrificed and eaten, so its powers might be incorporated. So I sampled the groundfish on offer in Portland’s restaurants — in its classic forms, in newer applications, and in fine dining. Old-fashioned fried seafood is the central idea behind the new 3Buoys Seafood Shanty, housed in a colorful little building that sits askew at the busy intersection of Cumberland and Washington avenues. The fish fry is a good one, with several huge pieces of haddock — a fish whose meatiness stands up well to the oil and heat. Along with a big pile of thick-cut fries, and a little bit of slaw, it’s a lot of food. The breading has a good crunch without getting too crisp, and a hint of nutty flavor. The frying is done with some restraint, so things don’t get too greasy and the fish is left with some of its native sweetness and tenderness. The fish chowder features

f

the same haddock and little else. The stock, texture, and flavors are all fish and subtle seasoning — with no potatoes or other additions to get in the way. The broth is thick with pieces of the disintegrating haddock, and the rich flavor has a pleasant touch of sour. The fish taco gives our native cuisine an international spin, and I tried a few. At the new Taqueria Tequila, on St. John Street, they are using haddock. The fish seems baked and chipped rather than fried, which is a touch unusual. The spices imbue the flesh, giving it a slight orange hue, and bring out some of the fish’s sour flavors. Their simple approach highlights the fish, with just some cilantro and diced tomato, and a splash of lime. A squeeze of green salsa added some creamy warmth. At $2.25 this is a fine fish taco (but the truth is their other tacos for $2 are even better). At Taco Escobarr they give seasoned pieces of firm pollock a very light fry. A white sauce adds just a touch of tang, some slaw lends a bit of sour, and thin slices of radish give some bitterness. At three for $10 they run a bit more money, but you get them on house-made corn tortillas — which have good flavor but could use a touch more sear on the grill. At the Old Port Sea Grill several huge fish are painted on the back wall, looking anxious

or angry. I would be angry too, seeing all the ways they serve up groundfish. Their panseared flounder represents the epicurean take on the traditional fish fry, especially when served with fried fingerling potatoes. This fish’s delicate flesh HADDOCK MEXICANO taqueria tequila’s fish tacos. and subtle flavors respond best to a flash of Loose-Fish and a Fast-Fish, too?” Let the heat and a bit of butter. The Sea Grill’s expert groundfish be our paradigm. White of flesh, preparation preserves the tender texture, and mild to the point of blandness, passively adds some buttery hazelnut for crunch.

argo’s golden fleece _By pet e r ke o ug h The situation may reshuffle by the Oscar broadcast on February 24, but I doubt it. After being snubbed in the Best Director category, Argo has won every award since. A bunch of Golden Globes, the Producers Guild, the Screen Actors Guild, the Directors Guild, BAFTA — the winning streak should continue through Oscar night, with Argo winning Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Editing, perhaps Best Supporting Actor. That more-controversial CIA thriller, Zero Dark Thirty, will have to settle for Best Original Screenplay. On the other hand, if Argo does win, it would be the first time since Driving Miss Daisy in 1990 that a movie wins Best Picture without the director even being nominated. Nonetheless, it’s the ideal candidate. The Oscars exist to promote Hollywood’s image of itself. So when you have a film in which Hollywood defeats Islamist extremists — well, if Argo loses, it means the terrorists have won. With no Affleck, who wins Best Director? Not Ang Lee, Michael Haneke, or Benh Zeitlin. Steven Spielberg might draw on Lincoln’s waning momentum and win. But Silver Linings Playbook director David O.

Puzzle solution at ooM thePhoenix.coM/recr

_by syMbo line Da i This week’s waxing moon goes from first quarter to full, and my experience says that this is the week you go from first to fourth gear in what seems like an instant. Everything intensifies, and with Venus moving into Pisces, and Mercury retrograde, romance is about to get passive-aggressive, particularly for Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, Scorpio, and Cancer (Pisces, you’re in there too, need we remind you?). After Saturday, hold off on tune-ups, upgrades, reboots, and other technical improvements till later in March. For more, visit moonsigns.net.

Waxing moon in cancer, moon void of course 9:08 pm until 5:12 pm Friday. an evening void-of-course moon makes for confusion if you’re working late. you did say you’re working late, right? and who’s supposed to cook? huge domestic urges swallow up cancer, pisces, Scorpio, leo, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and aquarius. capricorn, aries, and libra: keep those secrets — not everyone needs to know everything. 13

Waxing moon in cancer, void of course until 5:12 pm when it moves into leo. With a full moon looming on monday, you may have that gotta-geddit-done anxiety. if things are moving smoothly — keep on. if you’ve hit a rough patch, definitely bail, particularly if you’re aries, libra, capricorn, aquarius, taurus, or Scorpio. cancer, pisces, leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, and Virgo: others perceive that you’re in charge of “the flow,” as in “going with.” yes, that means responsibility! 14

Waxing moon in leo, mercury retrogrades until march 17. an excellent weekend for working with small children or getting in touch with your childish needs (aries, Gemini, leo, Virgo, libra, Sagittarius, capricorn, pisces). or being persuaded by advertising (taurus, Scorpio and aquarius). yes, mercury is retrograde, but for some folks (those born when mercury is retrograde, approximately 17 percent of all birthdays), you’ll hit cruising altitude. 15

Waxing moon in leo, moon void of course 11:50 pm until monday, 1:52 am. if you’re completely exhausted, having partied beyond anticipation, you’re in tune with this moon, which is nearly full. Why not indulge in romantic folly (aries, Gemini, leo, Virgo, libra, Sagittarius, capricorn, pisces) or look for a more expensive toy (taurus, Scorpio, and aquarius)? 16

Full moon in Virgo, Venus moves into pisces. the “trapper’s moon,” and if you can’t hop away on those little bunny legs, try and look like a lump of snow. camouflage is recommended for pisces, Sagittarius, and Gemini, who may be the target of others’ well-wishes (e.g., super-critical comments or the work “pile-on”). cancer, leo, Virgo, libra, Scorpio, capricorn, taurus, aquarius, and aries: good enough isn’t good enough today, is it? don’t make yourself crazy with the perfectionist impulse. 17

Waning moon in Virgo, moon void of course 1:33 pm until 6:02 am Wednesday. excellent for shopping and cleaning (glamorously! boutique grocerias and designer abrasives!). also super for getting clothes altered or looking at a product with a finer grade of lens. pisces, Sagittarius, and Gemini: if you’re feeling neurotic, you’re in tune with the moon. cancer, leo, Virgo, libra, Scorpio, capricorn, taurus, aquarius, and aries: don’t let others rush you. 18

Waning moon in libra. Firmly held decisions wobble, and compromise is more likely today than it was last week. So is a fleeting desire for something gorgeous to wear. if you’re an aries, capricorn, or cancer: weigh the decision, but don’t make it yet. if you’re a leo, Virgo, libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, aquarius, pisces, taurus, or Gemini: give in to that rare feeling — total commitment! 19

This horoscope traces the passage of the moon, not the sun. Simply read from day to day to watch the moon’s influence as it moves through the signs of the zodiac. | When the moon is in your sun sign, you are beginning a new 28-day emotional cycle, and you can expect increased insight and emotionality. When the moon moves into the sun sign opposite yours (see below), expect to have difficulties dealing with the opposite sex, family, or authority figures; social or romantic activities will not be at their best. | When the moon is in Aries, it opposes Libra, and vice versa. Other oppositions are Taurus/Scorpio, Gemini/Sagittarius, Cancer/Capricorn, Leo/Aquarius, and Virgo/Pisces. The moon stays in each sign approximately two and a half days. | As the moon moves between signs, it will sometimes become “void of course,” making no major angles to planets. Consider this a null time and try to avoid making or implementing decisions if you can. But it’s great for brainstorming. | For Symboline Dai’s sun-sign horoscopes and advice column, visit our Web site at thePhoenix.com. Symboline Dai can be reached at sally@moonsigns.net.
