diversity,” said April Mason, university provost and senior vice president. “The department is truly deserving of the award and has shown that it understands, celebrates and promotes diversity within the Kansas State University community.” “Some people might say, ‘Well, of course, they have done an outstanding job in promoting diversity; after all, it’s women’s studies.’ What those sentiments overlook is the deeply nuanced understanding of diversity that the department has and the way it has brought diversity to the center of everything it does,” said Myra Gordon, associate provost for diversity. “After years of work, the result is 360 degrees of inclusive excellence. Indeed, with regard to diversity, the department of women’s studies is in 2012 what the entire university hopes to be in 2025.” Diversity is at the core of the women’s studies program, said Michele Janette, women’s studies department head and associate professor of English. “Our commitment to diversity infuses our curriculum, our pedagogy, our research, our hiring, our investment in students and student success, and our aspirations for the future of our world,” Janette said. “We are honored to have this work valued and recognized by the university at large.” The women’s studies program was founded in 1978 to bring diversity to the university in several ways: to get women’s

The women’s studies department has a diverse student, faculty and staff body that includes underrepresented groups. All seven full-time faculty members are women and four of the seven are women of color. All faculty members are also engaged in projects that directly relate to gender, race, class and sexual diversity. Additionally, 20 percent of women’s studies graduates in the last 12 months have been students of color. The women’s studies department has sponsored the Women of Color Film Series, which has brought to campus a variety of films by and about women of color. The department has also offered a Connecting Across Topics, or CAT, community course called Gender, Race and Class in American Culture, which is collaboratively taught by Valerie Padilla Carroll, an instructor in women’s studies, and Cheryl Ragar, an assistant professor of American ethnic studies. International diversity is also a key component in departmental activities. The department is developing study abroad opportunities in Mexico and Vietnam, and women’s studies faculty have active research collaborations with colleagues in Uganda and China. The department will continue to enhance diversity in the coming year. This year, it is launching its new curriculum for majors, which emphasizes issues of diversity. The department is also sponsoring and co-sponsoring events that promote diversity. Some of these events include: * A visit by Janice Gould, a two-spirit Native American poet, on Nov. 13 in the K-State Student Union Little Theatre. * A visit by Rey Chow, an AsianAmerican cultural critic, on March 8, 2013. * Speaker Stephanie Coontz, a historian of women and culture, on May 3, 2013, in the Alumni Center Ballroom. “We understand diversity as both seeking for inclusion, and also understanding the transformative power of difference: that when we take seriously

the knowledges that are produced from different perspectives, we are challenged to transform ourselves, our culture and our ideas for the better,” Janette said. NO ROOM FOR DEBATE: TWO OF THE NATION’S BEST NOW GUIDING UNIVERSITY DEBATE TEAM

MANHATTAN -- Two nationally recognized talents in the debate community are now leading the Kansas State University debate team. Joe Koehle is the new director of debate, and Martin Osborn is the new assistant director of debate. Both are instructors of communication studies. In addition to coaching, Koehle and Osborn are also teaching multiple courses for the communication studies department, including argumentation, small group communication, and business and professional speaking. Koehle has been both a debater and coach for 15 years. He coached the University of West Georgia and the University of Kansas, with his teams competing at every major national circuit tournament and at the national tournaments for the National Debate Tournament and Cross Examination Debate Association. He coached a high school team to the finals for both the Catholic Forensics League and National Forensics League in 2003. Most recently he helped coach Kansas State University to the national championship in 2011 and helped two KU teams reach the sweet 16 at the National Debate Tournament. In his own career, Koehle was the top speaker at Pennsylvania’s state high school tournament, and still holds a record margin for the competition. In college he was a four-time qualifier at the National Debate Tournament and was ranked ninth in the nation. Osborn has seen success as both a coach and debater. He was an assistant coach at both Missouri State University and Wake Forest University, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees, respectively. His debaters at Missouri State reached the elimination rounds of the National Debate Tournament. While at Wake Forest, Osborn’s debaters reached the elimination rounds at the National Debate Tournament two years running, and three of his teams finished the season officially ranked in the top 16. Osborn has also been heavily involved in high school debate, coaching numerous nationally competitive high

school programs and teaching at summer debate institutes at the University of Michigan, Stanford University and many other places. In high school, Osborn was part of the first -- and only -- group of debaters from Wyoming to qualify for the Tournament of Champions, conducted annually in Lexington, Ky. As a college debater, Osborn was named top speaker at the 2008 National Debate Tournament, where he reached the semifinals and was a four-time qualifier for the tournament. He was also the top speaker and semifinalist at the 2008 CrossExamination Debate Association Tournament, which further recognized Osborn as the Brian “Baby Jo” Johnston Debater of the Year. The Kansas State University debate team is in the department of communication studies. The team has a long tradition of excellence, which includes winning the national debate championship in 1991, 1993 and 2011.

homeless in Manhattan part 1 of 4 Budget cuts might effect already stressed shelter Darcie W. West A

few weeks ago, I was in Aggieville when a young man came up to me and asked if he could use my phone. I watched him for a few moments while he pulled out a piece of paper with names and numbers and proceeded to call a few people, looking for a place to stay. When he had finished (unsuccessfully), I asked him the dumbly obvious question if he was homeless. He said yes. I asked him if he knew where the shelter was, and he responded, “They’re full. Every time I go there, they’re full up.” This surprised me. I did not know much about Manhattan Emergency Shelter, Inc., but surely if they were full all the time, there would be more people on the streets. I rarely saw homeless people in Manhattan, and certainly not sleeping on the sidewalks like I have in other cities. On the other hand, this young man did not look like the stereotypical hobo one often thinks of. So, I took it upon myself to go to the shelter and talk to Executive Director Emily Wagner. I told her the story of my encounter and asked what I thought was a simple question: Just how bad is homelessness in Manhattan? This ended up being a long and complicated journey from the shelter to the City Commission to the city’s Director of Finance, and I’m still not certain I have definitive answers. MANHATTAN EMERGENCY SHELTER, INC.

“I think there’s this perception of homelessness you see on TV. What people think it looks like is so far from the truth,”

Homelessness in Manhattan is an invisible issue. Wagner agreed that one does not often see homeless people on the streets of Manhattan, which she hoped was a credit to the shelter doing its job, but often there is more to homelessness than meets the eye. Many people, she said, were unaware of how big the problem was precisely for the reason that it is not very visible. “I think there’s this perception of homelessness you see on TV. What people think it looks like is so far from the truth,”

emergency shelter INC

There are a number of other ways people can help out the Manhattan Emergency Shelter, Inc. * Volunteer. With students back and community service workers, the shelter is usually full of volunteers, but anyone who wishes to help is encouraged to call and see if they need a hand. Wagner said they are especially in need of people with maintenance or handyman skills. Wagner told me. “We see professionals in the community who come here. It might be a family who goes to your church, or a child who plays on your kid’s soccer team.” The current shelter at 416 S. 4th Street, also known as the Caroline Peine Transitional Shelter, was built in 2008 with money from foundations, grants and fund-raising. The old shelter was able to house 27 people at a time. This one holds nearly twice as many; 12 single men, 10 single women, six families and two disability rooms, for a total of 46 people. “At the time, in 2008, we thought that would be enough,” Wagner said. “But we are still turning away people.” Wagner estimated they turn away one or two people per week, but it was difficult to keep track because most clients do not have a way to contact them. Subsequently, the shelter runs on a first-come, first-serve basis and potential clients are advised to call every day. Sometimes they are able to find room for them in another shelter in a nearby town, but usually if they are full, everyone else is, too. “It seems like this problem is just getting bigger and bigger,” she said. In addition to the actual shelter, there are a number of other programs in place to help people in Manhattan who have either lost their homes or are in danger of losing them. There are 12 apartments leased to people with disabilities and 12 more for families, but these do not become available very often. Perhaps one a year or every other year, according to Wagner. Another program, started in 2009, is “Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing,” which works with members of the community who are in danger of eviction. They work with landlords as mediators to prevent people from being turned out on the streets by finding solutions. For example, one woman called the shelter when she was in danger of losing her apartment because she could not afford the monthly rent. They had enough time to talk to the

landlord and find a cheaper place, owned by the same landlord, to move her into. She was able to afford rent at this new location and also paid off the back rent she owed in monthly installments. But they were only able to accomplish this because she had called with enough time to spare. Many people wait until it’s too late. “Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing” was created with stimulus dollars from the Federal Government as part of President Obama’s American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009. But it was only a 30 month program and funding ended in June of this year. Wagner said they do not want this program to end because it has not only helped 355 households in Manhattan, but also put more than $620,000 back into the community in the form of rent that was able to be paid to landlords, utility bills that were able to be paid and more. They have some small grants with help from the City of Manhattan and are writing for another grant from HUD, but won’t know if they will get the funding they need until later this month. This valuable prevention program is not the only thing in danger. The shelter itself has seen a steadily upward tick in the number of new clients, especially in the last year. In the past, if both parents of a household worked full time, they could make ends meet. Now, Wagner said, they are seeing an increasing number of families who are employed full time but unable to keep up with the rising cost of rent, gas, utilities, groceries and more. “I think the economic crisis has just started to hit Manhattan this year,” Wagner said. “It makes it tough for us, having to turn those families away, but it also makes it tough for those families who call day after day, waiting for a spot to open up.” On August 21, the City approved a 5% budget cut to social services funding. Among the ten social services programs in Manhattan that will be affected by

* Of course, money is always welcome. A great deal of monetary donations go to supplies they need, such as toilet paper and cleaning supplies. “Think about how much you use in your own home,” Wagner suggested. “This is a house of 46 people.” * Food. Nonperishable food, such as canned goods, are always welcome, but they can also accept leftovers from events, such as party trays from office parties. All clients cook their own food in the large kitchen available in the shelter, and many bring their own food, but it is always helpful to have some on hand because some people come to the shelter with literally nothing and need all the help they can get. * Supplies. The three things they are in constant need of is toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags. Wagner suggested that a group could get together (such as a fraternity, sorority, book club, church group, whatever) and each person brings one package of toilet paper to donate. “It may not seem like a lot to them, but it will last us a couple days until the next donation,” Wagner said.

this cut is the Manhattan Emergency Shelter, Inc. Wagner said they were not sure how the cut would affect them, yet, but she hoped they would not be put into a position to cut programs or staff. “We already have a skeleton crew here,” she said. “We only have one case manager for the shelter program.” Wagner said the most rewarding thing about working at the shelter was seeing the people they help. It was especially re-

warding to see the children who came get some much needed support and stability in their lives, but also it was very gratifying to see someone get into a permanent home and sign the lease. She spoke of one elderly woman who had been with them for a while who literally jumped for joy when she showed them the keys to her new apartment.

“I think the economic crisis has just started to hit Manhattan this year. It makes it tough for us, having to turn those families away”

dark mediocrity

the mundanity of tim burton dripping with cynicism squeezed from the blood of baby seals by

ace reporter sam sargent

BORING!

“Good artists borrow, great artists steal.” - A quote from someone... While there is much debate regarding who originally said it, and even if it should be “borrow”or “copy” there is little doubt that the axiom rings true. With this maxim in mind, I still find it deeply annoying that people consider Tim Burton to be a creative genius. The man is one of the biggest copycats in Hollywood. I used to be a big fan of Tim Burton. “Edward Scissorhands” is a masterpiece. Upon seeing Stanley Kubrick’s horrible rendition of “A Clockwork Orange” I declared it the worst movie I had ever seen. The general concept was interesting (sadly, I’ve yet to read the book, it sits amongst a long list of neglected titles on my ereader) and I thought that Tim Burton should remake it. Three days later, that idea was rescinded when I went to see Burton’s remake of “Planet of the Apes” Don’t worry. This isn’t about to turn into a rabid sci-fi geek rant. I never saw the original “Planet of the Apes”movies. I recall seeing commercials for them on TBS when I was a child but they never drew my interest. The only reason I went to the remake was because friends asked me to go and the last time I saw a movie with them, against my better judgement, it ended up being a fantastic bit of comedy. Their streak of being right ended with a single victory. The writing of “Planet of the Apes”was horrible. The acting was horrible. The directing was horrible. The movie’s only redeeming aspect was the scenery, something they never focused on for more than a split-second. Thus the editing sucked too. “Planet of the Apes”was the absolute worst movie I have ever seen. The only thing that kept me from walking out of it

was the fact that there were nearblizzard conditions outside and I hadn’t driven. It was this single film that flipped my opinion of Tim Burton. Three days prior, I had wanted him to remake a movie. Now I never wanted to see another Tim Burton movie again. It was so bad that it even quelled my appreciation for earlier Burton movies. Here’s a fact to mull over: Of the sixteen feature-length films that Tim Burton has directed, only two of them were based on original material. Four (“Alice in Wonderland” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” “Big Fish”and “Sleepy Hollow” were based on books. Two (“Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure”and “Sweeney Todd” originated as stage shows. The Batman movies were, of course, adaptations of the comic book series. “Dark Shadows”was originally a TV show, “Mars Attacks!”was created as a series of trading cards, “The Corpse Bride”is a traditional Jewish folktale and “Ed Wood”was a biographical piece. That leaves only “Edward Scissorhands”and “Beetlejuice”as primarily original works.

If that isn’t bad enough, Burton stoops to an all time low with his newest film, “Frankenweenie” Now he’s not only remaking an old movie, he’s actually remaking his own work. Granted, the original was a short film (running approx. 30 minutes) and had a lowly budget of only $1,000,000 (as opposed to the $85 million reportedly being spent on the remake). If Burton possessed a penchant for originality, I’d be willing to cut him some slack. But now he’s venturing into George Lucas territory, and that never ends well. “But what about his style?!”cry his fans. Yes, Tim Burton certainly has a distinctive style all of his own. It was certainly original... in the first half-dozen films in which it was on display. But at this juncture, someone could show you still photos of a new movie and you would be able to tell if it was directed by Burton simply by “the look” That’s not creativity, that’s stagnation. That isn’t to say that originality and creativity are the end-all/be-all of movie quality. An unoriginal movie can still be quite enjoyable. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying Tim Burton’s movies. Just don’t declare him a creative genius when he’s quite the opposite. It was over a decade after seeing “Planet of the Apes”that I was finally able to sit down and watch another Tim Burton movie. I’ll admit that I had ulterior motives for doing so. The movie in question was “Alice in Wonderland” I am

a very, very big fan of Lewis Carroll’s classic and I would be skeptical of even my favourite directors bringing it to the big screen yet again. I suspected that Burton’s remake would cement my hatred of him even more. Even so, I wasn’t able to bring myself to watch it until several weeks after DVRing it during a free Starz weekend. The movie... wasn’t bad. It was rather decent, actually. My only major gripe is with the title. The movie wasn’t “Alice in Wonderland” It was “Return to Wonderland”or “Alice Again”or some such. To call it “Alice in Wonderland”is like calling one of the later sequels “Rocky” It’s not the same thing. Originality and creativity are no longer prized by movie-goers. Of the top ten highest grossing movies of 2012 thus far, only two (“Brave”and “Ted” aren’t sequels, adaptations or remakes. And that’s fine. Hollywood isn’t an artist collective. It’s a movie factory helmed by capitalists. It’s a fitting place for Tim Burton, because Tim Burton is no artist.

THIS WEEK IN MHK... Monday Through Friday 9AM-5PM

Ongoing Attractions Oh, Really? Strecker-Nelson Gallery An exhibit of paintings and sculpture which looks at the iconic images and “artifacts” of mid-20th century. The exhibit features paintings and sculpture by Phyllis Pease, and paintings by Laura Noland Harter and Talbot Hopkins. The show also includes the return of “toys” and artifacts by Randy Regier.

Goodnight Moon: Selections from the Permanent Collection Marianna Kistler Beach Museum Of Art From starlit staircases and moon glow to glowing sparklers and carnival lights, this exhibition explores the many facets of night. The exhibition topic was chosen to compliment “Dream Big,” the theme for the Kansas Library Association summer reading program. The selections include idyllic moonlit scenes by beloved Kansas artists Birger Sandzen and John Steuart Curry and more conceptual pieces like Jeff Mongrain’s “An Evening’s Breath,” a clay pillow which holds exactly the amount of moisture exhaled during a night’s sleep. Contemporary images of night include views of porches, airports and highways lit by lights.

American Movies and the Movie-Going Experience Beach Museum of Art American Movies and the Movie-Going Experience: This course will concentrate on the social aspects of popular film genres through the decades and demonstrate how movies reveal the character of society in which they were produced.

Konza: Sculpture by John Powers Marianna Kistler Beach Museum Of Art Konza , is a large kinetic sculpture inspired by the natural beauty and movement of the nearby Konza prairie, is the newest addition to the permanent collection. This powerful metal work reflects a set of contrasting themes; the natural and the manmade, the internal and external, the permanent and the fleeting. “Sometimes we see the natural world in a new way after seeing an artist’s representation. This wonderful work by John Powers may be mechanical, but it evokes features of the natural tallgrass prairie that we treasure as a Kansas icon.” -Linda Duke, museum director

FORCES: The Shaping of Manhattan, Fort Riley and Kansas State University Flint Hills Discovery Center This exhibit is a partnership between the Riley County Historical Museum; the U.S. Cavalry Museum, Fort Riley; Conservation and Restoration Branch, Fort Riley; the Costume and Textile Museum, KSU; and the KSU archives. The exhibit explores the period between 1853 and 1914: our pioneer beginnings, the transition to building a community, and growth into the 20th century.

The Pride of Wildcat Land Bringing The Wabash To The Ville Every Friday Prior to GameDay By Jimbo Ivy The Pride of Wildcat Land, led by Dr. Frank Tracz, is most well known for occupying the field of Bill Snyder Family Stadium during half-time with original and awe-inspiring feats of human organization and musical skill. It provides the emotional undercurrent that makes The Bill and The Octagon of Doom difficult places for opponents and creates memorable moments for fans and players alike. However, every Friday prior to a gameday, a detachment of The

The “PubCrawl Band” brings Wildcat tradition to the Ville stopping at 11 different venues to play.

Pride sets off to occupy a much larger objective: Aggieville. The “Aggieville Cat Band” of “Pub Crawl” Band is a group of students that play in the Aggieville Business District on Friday nights of home football games. They use this opportunity to pep up the crowd at local establishments in support of the Wildcats, and are under the direction of Mr. Don Linn. The Pub Crawl Band hits The Ville around 7pm and you can find them somewhere between Rock-ABelly, Eighteen63, Coco Bolo’s, Varney’s, Rusty’s, Kite’s, So Long, Taco Lucha, Aggie Station, KatHouse, & Wahoo Fire and Ice Grille!

to see the band each Friday night prior is another excellent tradition here at KSU, right up there with the early morning tailgate and getting your picture taken with Willie each year. But the band hitting the Ville each Friday prior doesn’t just leave an impression on the fans: “The Aggieville Band brings Saturday’s game to life on Friday nights. If you love getting the fans pumped for the game, then this band is for you. Nothing is more rewarding than listening to a crowd in a crammed restaurant sing Wildcat Victory at the top of their lungs, or seeing a group of fans do the Wabash,” says Ted Krofssik, former Pub Crawl Band member. So get out this Friday and support The Pride of Wildcat Land by jumping in on some Wabashing and following our awesome, electrifying musicians as the get the Ville in tune for another Wildcat victory!

Things You Need To Write Down, Right Now To Be In The Know For The Coming Weekends!

As Wade Bowen looks ahead to the full-length release of his major-label debut and his emerging transition from regional success to national prominence, there was one vital dynamic affecting the timing: his fans. Across five independent albums and a decade-plus of touring, Bowen not only amassed a string of regional

Beth Bombara w/ Tabor Rucker Auntie Mae’s Parlor 9/18/12 8:00pm Beth Bombara is a musician from St. Louis, Missouri. Beth writes and plays her very own songs with the help of a backing band composed of several fine musicians in their own right. She sometimes performs solo with just a guitar, tambourine, and harmonica. It isn’t unusual to catch her playing all three at once. $3 Truckstop Honeymoon Auntie Mae’s Parlor 9/21/12 8:00pm Truckstop Honeymoon play tough, funny, hi-octane songs about interstates, pinball arcades and true love. Katie Euliss pounds a doghouse bass while Mike Westpunishes a banjo mercilessly. Together they charm festival crowds and drive roadhouse drinkers to the dance-floor. $5 Josh Vowel & The Rumble O’Malleys 9/21/2012 8:30pm Josh Vowell & The Rumble is a fivepiece progressive blues band that stormed onto the Regional music scene in November, 2007. They are a Blues/Rock outfit from the Greater Kansas City region. Dewayn Brothers/ Loco Macheen Reunion Auntie Mae’s Parlor 9/22/12 8:00pm

Formed in Emporia Kansas in 2002, Loco Macheen and The DeWayn Bros. are a Jeckyl and Hyde so to speak. The DeWayn Bros. use clever song arrangements and beautiful harmonies to create their Kansas bluegrass sound. Originality is also a huge factor in the DeWayn sound. Influences spanning from traditional pickers to rock, country and jazz. Never limiting what you can do with a traditional bluegrass line-up is a big part of being a DeWayn Brother. DeWayn recorded their newest album "Critter Creole" in New Orleans, LA just before the Hurricane hit with Mike West at the Ninth Ward Pickin Parlor. It was miserable hot and humid and the recording space had no AC and we went from 10am to 6pm everyday and by 2 in the afternoon it would be cooler outside than in the studio and it was at least 100 degrees outside!!!! Now, Loco Macheen is the Hyde portion of the show! All the same members but whole new band, add a drummer, some guitars, an explosive harmonica player, a pounding rhythm section, the full keyboard set-up and a whole bunch of singing, and we will get started. $8 Three of a Kind O’Malleys 9/22/2012 9:00pm Three of a Kind is comprised of three veterans of the Kansas music scene that have come together to provide a fun and energetic rock and roll experience. We love to play music that allows people to feel good and have a great time. Whether in a bar, nightclub or at a private party our goal is to play songs that people love to sing and dance to. We play rock music from the late 60’s, 70’s and 80's and you are sure to recognize every song you hear. We have an enormous amount of fun on stage, and that sense of fun is contagious.

Beth Bombara multi-instrumental maven hits mae’s like a mac truck full of sugar By Jimbo Ivy

gets rocky/bluesy a bit at times, which is fun, on tunes like “Winter Blues” which has some sort of “Witchcraft” sort of feel that I can’t quite explain to my satisfaction. And then jazzy too. A trombone shows up, unbidden, slung through the crook of Fiona Apple’s elbow.

This coming Tuesday (the 18th) the cool darkness of Mae’s basement will play host to a breath of fresh alt-country air in the form of Beth Bombara.

AggieVille Aftermath

Yes. Alt-country. I know I use that word a lot, but if I say country I picture Brad Paisley and Taylor Swift, which are swell at what they do, but not representative of what Bombara does. With pipes strong enough to challenge any traditionally trained bluegrass or gospel-er, but with a handful of that yodel-y feel that KT and Cat Power carrying around, Bombara will be perfectly palatable for both the Winfield and Lilith set. She’s got one of those voices that lends itself to her song stylings; all encompassing tales of life told thru the flashing dark lense of a good pint of bitter. She

Sounds a bit strange or schizo, but it’s all tied up with a coherent style, though. Wether she’s teasing or tattling in the styles of June or Johnny, it all works and is my favorite sort of fusion; the kind that appreciates all but has no compulsion sounding alien to all.

Last Night in Aggieville... ...this one isn’t fake. ...or this one. ...i caused $90 worth of damage due to the $90 open container I got on my own sidewalk. ...i remembered why I hate football season. Not because of anything related to the actual sport, but because of what happens to Aggieville after a game. ...EMAW!!!!!! ...COZY BURGERS HAZ CHEESE NOW! HOLY SHI*T! TELL EVERYONE!! ...I vomited purple. That is how much of a KSU fan I am. Purple. Serious. ...Hurricanes? More like durrrrr-incanes! ...I read a book, while people killed their brains cells.

Come see her. It’s a Tuesday. What have you got going on, anyways? Studying? Ha!

...a girl fell out of one of Kite’s windows and onto a dog. I sh*t you not.

Cover is $3. She deserves $7, minimum, and the bartenders at Mae’s have no regard for your liver so the drinks are always doubles comparatively. See ya there, Space Cowboy.

...I saw a guy spit tobacco into his friend’s drink for almost ten minutes before the guy caught him. He drank from it twice.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2012

written without anything you would consider “performance enchancing” by

George Wame Matthews

T

he 2012 NFL season officially kicked off this past Wednesday with the Dallas Cowboys (a. k. a. “America’s Team”, or “that team that plays in the stadium with the hole in the roof so that God can watch the Cowboys play”) defeating the defending world champions, the New York “football” Giants (so named for the fact that the San Francisco “baseball” Giants used to play in Manhattan thus necessitating the need for distinction between the two teams). Wednesday also marked the beginning of the season for the Kansas Furious One’s, my fantasy football team (I live in Kansas, my name is George, Curious George, Furious George, you get the picture). According to legend (or Wikipedia) fantasy football has been around since 1962, though it did not really take off until the late 90’s when the advent of the internet and free public leagues made fantasy football accessible to the masses. It is now estimated that nearly 19 million people participate in both public and private fantasy football leagues. Every major sports media website now hosts fantasy football leagues (as well as fantasy baseball, basketball, hockey, and yes even soccer). Depending on how one judges it, fantasy sports have become a multi-billion dollar industry lead primarily by the football leagues. I started doing (playing?) fantasy football seven years ago. Initially I began playing as a way to bond with one of my employers (being a freelance carpenter in New York City, having strong relationships with the people who give you work is key.) After doing it for a season, however, I found that playing fantasy football gave me a reason to care about all those other games each week that the Cowboys were not playing in (what can I say, I’m from Texas, therefore Dallas has always and will always be my team). I was enjoying it, but the bug had not really bitten me at that point. Three years ago I joined a second league (this one is run by friends here in Manhattan), so now I find myself to be the owner of two fantasy football teams. Fantasy football leagues are usually

comprised of between 8 and 16 teams controlled by different owners. Depending on the type of league, each team will usually have 16 players on it. Owners select their players in a draft normally held one or two weeks before the start of the NFL’s regular season. Teams will then compete against each other in one-on-one games each week. Wins and losses are kept track of by the computer and used to determine

which teams make it to the playoffs, and ultimately to the “Superbowl.” Points are scored based off of the weekly performance of the athletes on your team. There are countless scoring systems out there, but in most leagues quarterbacks receive 6 points for every touchdown they throw, as well as 1 point for every 25 passing yards they accrue. For example, if a quarterback throws for two touchdowns and 235 yards, then they will get 21 points. Wide receivers and tight ends also receive 6 points for every touchdown they catch and 1 point for every 10-15 receiving yards they have (depending on the league’s scoring rules). Running backs get 6 points for every touchdown they score and 1 point for every 10 yards they run. Kickers score 3 points for every field goal they score (though most leagues will often award more points for longer fields goals) and 1 point for each extra point that they kick. Players can lose points for fumbles, interceptions, and missed field goals/extra

points. Defensive players are scored a little differently than the offensive players. Most leagues will fall into one of two categories, team defense leagues and IDP (individual defensive player) leagues. In team defense leagues owners will choose a NFL team’s defense and special teams unit (D/ST) for their fantasy team. The D/ST will score 6 points for every touchdown they score (be it a fumble recovery, interception, or kickoff/punt return), and a decreasing amount of points for allowing their opponents to score and accumulate yardage. For example, a D/ST unit that allows its opponents to 3 points and gain only 100 total offensive yards will score more points that a D/ST unit that allows 38 points and 500 total offensive yards. In IDP leagues, owners pick defensive players who receive points for fumble recoveries/interceptions, sacks (tackling the oppositions quartet back), tackles, and kickoff/punt return yardage. Since its explosion in the late 90’s, fantasy football has become a multi-billion dollar industry, which is amazing considering most fantasy football leagues are free to join. An entire industry has grown up around making predictions as to which

players will both over and underperform every week as well as identifying “sleepers” (players may not be stars now, but will play like one) to draft/pick up as free agents in your league. Fantasy football has been a blessing for the NFL, as it has become one of their biggest, if not in fact their biggest marketing tools, while they do not even have to lift a finger.

A clockwork orange

classic Starring: Malcolm McDowell, Michael Bates, John Clive, Adrienne Corri Written by: Stanley Kubrick Based on the book “A Clockwork Orange” by Anthony Burgess Directed by: Stanley Kubrick

SEPTEMBER 13, 2012

Marcus Jay

S

Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange must have been a shocking film in 1972; in 2012 it still feels brand new. From the first shot of Malcolm McDowell’s eye staring directly at us, the viewer, to his transcendent moment of “cure” at the end, Kubrick grabs us. This is one of the all-time great films; a film of ideas that is also as quotable as Anchorman. Politically, A Clockwork Orange calls into question the machinations of both the right and the left. Kubrick never really chooses a side, preferring to leave those questions to history. We open on Alex Delarge (Malcolm McDowell) and his “droogs” Pete, Georgie and Dim in the Korova Milk Bar as they drink milk plus and prepare for a night of “ultra-violence.” After leaving the milk bar, the gang beat a homeless man before going

to the country where they beat up a writer and rape his young wife. After a brief respite, Alex’s crime spree continues with the attempted robbery of a woman. Alex kills the woman and is arrested after being betrayed by his droogs, who are unhappy with his leadership. Alex is remanded to jail, where he remains for two years, until he successfully lobbies to be a test subject for the experimental Ludovico Technique. The Ludovico Technique is a treatment in which the offender is given drugs that induce nausea while being shown films of violence and depravity. The treatment renders the offender nauseous in the face of violence, and unable to attack anyone. Returned to society, Alex is assaulted

by his droogs who have become police officers for the corrupt government and eventually stumbles into the home of Mr. Alexander, the man whose wife Alex raped. Mr. Alexander is a writer and political activist who wishes to use Alex as a weapon against the corrupt government. However, Alexander soon realizes that Alex is the thug who raped and ultimately killed his wife, and locks Alex in an upstairs room while Beethoven plays on a loop—Beethoven causes Alex the same nausea as violence due to it being played during his treatment— until he can be properly used against the government. Alex escapes by jumping out the window to what he presumes will be his death, but wakes in a hospital where he finds he no longer has an aversion to violence. He is offered a job in the corrupt government and declares, “I was cured alright.” In A Clockwork Orange, Stanley Kubrick asks a fundamental question: What ends are justified in punishing someone for a crime? Yes,

Alex is a thug and a murderer, but once in prison he is eager to reform and becomes an apprentice of the chaplain. It seems that his behavior is a tad too earnest; possibly he’s just feigning good behavior and once released he’ll go back to his old ways. Or, possibly, Alex really has been changed by his two-year prison stretch. Two years is not enough to make amends for his crimes, but maybe after his full fourteenyear interval Alex will be ready to integrate back into society. We can never really be certain. Once Alex is given the Ludovico

treatment and becomes unable to commit violent acts, he has no choice but to resist violence. The prison chaplain points out that this makes him nothing more than an automaton, the titular clockwork orange; organic on the outside and mechanical on the inside. Is this a fair treatment, to turn a man into nothing more than a robot that is unable to choose, for better or worse, his own morality? And what of the government that would sanction such a treatment? They treat human beings as nothing more than malleable objects, able to be changed to fit their templates. Young thugs become violent Gestapo, and prisoners are just experiments in behavioral psychology. This is a vicious, authoritarian government. It can really be no coincidence then that Alex is recruited into the government after his aversion to violence is cured. After all, isn’t that what government is best at? Oscar Wilde said that patriotism is a virtue of the vicious. I’d like to kindly disagree. Those who try to create a “sinless” world are the truly vicious.

smartphones for smart drinking

pouring out the head in your electronics with

John carroll Little Apple Oktoberfest will be one of the finest opportunities of the year to be a social drinker. But were you aware that you could be connecting with hundreds or thousands of other drinkers while mingling with Manhattan’s finest beer consumers? Many drinkers are now looking to their phones while drinking. Sure, beer apps were initially stupid and simple -- you’ve probably all met someone who downloaded iBeer and “chugged” a digital glass of light lager. But the beer app environment has since exploded on the iPhone and Android platforms. Here is a guide to some apps you should try while sampling the beverages on tap this Oktoberfest:

a whirl, start by checking in with Manhattan’s own Tallgrass Brewing Company, which is an active participant on Untappd. Once you start connecting with new friends and breweries, they can start pointing you to even more delicious beer to try. Untappd is available for both iPhone and Android. You can also connect via the web at untappd.com. BEERCLOUD

UNTAPPD One of the most popular beer drinking app out today, Untappd is essentially Facebook for beer. Sign-up, log-in and start tracking the beers you drink: you can rate them, add tasting notes, and even connect with not only your fellow drinkers, but the brewers themselves. If you’re giving it

If social networking isn’t for you, or if you just want something else from your beer app of choice, check out BeerCloud, which will quickly become your go-to beer encyclopedia. If an event like Oktoberfest overwhelms you with its sheer variety, BeerCloud will help you make sense of it all. You can look up practically any beer in the world, and quickly learn crucial information about it -- like its style, alcoholic content, brewer, bitterness and ideal food pairings. There’s also a cloud element that let’s you track your beers, a good option if you don’t care for the more public and social elements of Untappd. BeerCloud is available for iPhone and Android. You can also connect via the web at GreatBrewers.com. BREWGENE If the aforementioned apps seem nice, but not smart enough for your smartphone, you might want to play around with BrewGene. This apps incorporates similar elements from Untappd and BeerCloud: you can look-up the beers you’re drink-

ing and add them to your account. But if Untappd is Facebook plus beer, then BeerGene is beer to the power of Foursquare. The main attraction here is, of course, location tracking: you can not only track where you’re drinking particular beers (so that you might find them in the future), but you can also let the app suggest certain beers when you’re at particular bars, all based on your previous preferences. That’s right: BeerGene has a brain. There are apps for both iPhone and Android, as well as a web element at www.brewgene.com. HOMEBREW TALK Are you a home brewer? Do you craft the best beer? Can you not believe that we poor saps are spending money at bars, rather than concocting our own delicious ales at home? If so, chat about it with your fellow home brewers on this app, which brings the HomeBrewTalk.com forums to your iPhone and Android devices. Brew Gene is available online atwww.beergene.com, and has apps on iPhone and Android.

Z-Day is coming... How all you Zombie lovers can help fight hunger this fall The zombie apocalypse is coming and we at The Hype in tandem with the Kansas ANTI-ZOMBIE Militia would like to make sure that all Manhattanites are prepared to take down the undead. On Saturday, October 13th, Z-Day is on! At City Park, starting in the morning, there will be a zombie-ridden, obstacle-impeding training course with options for the ‘long-way-around survivor’ as well as the ‘nut up or shut up Tallahassee’ survivors. Awards will be given to the fastest and cleverest survivors which is really something extra, because when the actual apocalypse happens, your award will be getting to keep your brains, in your head. What’s a training course without the zombies though? In the absence of the actual undead, we’ll need people willing to compete as zombies also for awards, such as the Ravenous award for the zombie who takes the most health flags from the survivors.

For the listening pleasure of both living and undead ears we’ll be hosting several of MHK’s finest bands such as FUMA, as well as events, games and prizes for the whole family whether you’re there to compete, to cheer on the survivors, root for the zombies or just take in the apocalypse.

come out and help us fight the zombies and participate to help us raise funds for Arts in the Park. Also, we will be doing the 2nd Annual Zombie Walk for Hunger starting around 5pm with help for costumes and make-up. Bring canned goods and/ or monetary donations for the Flint Hills Breadbasket. The walk will go from City Park to downtown and back to Aggieville. After the walk, iif you participated in the training course or purchased one of the event t-shirts (and are also 21), you can join all of us for a massmixing of living and undead pub crawl through Aggieville. We truly believe that if zombie and human just sat down and had a beer, they could figure out this whole ‘brains/ decapitation’ situation. But then again, maybe not.

part

And all of this goes to a great local cause! Arts in the Park, which brings nationally-famed acts as well as local acts to the stage for free shows in city park each summer, is an amazing and beloved program that has been affected by drastic budget cuts this year. If you have ever gotten to experience the incredible shows put on by Arts in the Park, you will understand why we need to save this program. We are counting on you Manhattan,

jaded. By that point in their life they’ve perhaps decided that the band is going no where or recently had a child and so it’s affecting practice routines, but moreover, many college bands have stopped feeling like they need to”earn it”.

(Monday, Monday, Monday, Golden Shoulders & Fuma at the dusty bookshelf)

They stand there, they play, we listen.

Jimbo Ivy We’re maybe-a-little-overly fond of Fuma. You know this. We’ve been holding them up as shining examples of what we wish we were doing when we were in high school since, well, since we found out about them this past Spring. But don’t let our enthusiasm fool you; they’re quite fantastic on their own merit. My friend, I’ll call him “Dumbassface”, disagrees and thinks that we (and according to him the rest of Manhattan) only like Fuma

because they’re young folks doing something different than most young folks are doing (which would arguably be nothing). This is untrue on lots of levels. A) There are many young folks in MHK doing neat things, ala the “Bare” kids, etc and B) Fuma’s unique style and enthusiasm for performance is a breath of fresh air. I mean, you have to admit, many college and post-college bands are a bit

No rocking is had. No leaping or gyration or selling it is attempted. It’s like bad sex. Whereas Fuma is still hungry, still a bit scared maybe even. And that makes them real and present, which is more than can be said for many bands twice their age. With Fuma on Monday

will be Cali band Golden Shoulders, which as near as we can scry is composed of Adam Kline and whichever friends/bandmates he can fit into his car at the time. Sometimes three, four, or five, the band fits nicely into that awkward category we all love; indie. It’s rough enough to say rock, harmonious enough to whisper folk, and primarily makes me imagine what would happen if The Beatles and The Who were cloned, interbred, and then their progeny forced to listen to the Killers and Death Cab synthy bits. Go see them both. They rocksauce. $5 American.

The NIGHT SHift part ii: 4, 5, and 6 a serialized novel by

Steven Miller IV. Hasey didn’t sleep a wink Saturday night. Partially he was anxious over Glenn and Kyle’s first face-to-face sit down meeting. This alone, though, wouldn’t have done it if he hadn’t been replaying the events of his trip to K.C. He played them over and over again in his head. Holding that man down and smashing his leg. It was literally impossible to stop seeing it in his mind’s eye. Hasey finally found a modicum of peace when he countered his restlessness with a few bumps of crystal spread out over the course of the night. He felt better, but he also didn’t sleep a wink that night. By ten o’clock Saturday morning, Glenn, Kyle and Hasey were all sitting down to a breakfast of biscuits and gravy, coffee and cigarettes, and Hasey was ready to launch rocket-style out of his seat. Their table was small and round, so small that their knees kept knocking into each other, and the strip club was completely dead. This meant they could speak as loudly as they wanted to. And so the more coffee they drank, the louder they became. “We can get you forty,” Hasey said, shakily cutting through a biscuit with the side of his fork. Linny had told them the safe had been stocked with fifty grand, but there was no reason to tell him that. Glenn remained silent, deliberating. If these guys were smart at all, their first offer would be a low ball. Certainly they weren’t smart, but it was worth a try. “That ain’t enough,” Glenn said. Kyle was about to say, “Well, that’s our offer,” when Hasey beat him to the punch. “Fine, fifty!” Hasey exclaimed instead. “Okay,” Glenn said. “Great!” Hasey said. “Yo, Sprinkles,” he called. “Get rid of this coffee and bring over some champagne.” Sprinkles returned to their table, barechested, and took the coffee mugs away.

“We work the night shift, The morning is our night.” “But I mean, haven’t you ever heard of IHOP?” “How are those biscuits, hon?” she asked Hasey. “I weren’t sure I left ‘em in the oven long enough.” “Glorious,” Hasey said, slipping a twenty into her g-string. After she’d left, Kyle said, “I get that the breakfast is good, but do we have to keep meeting in this strip joint? There’s something unnerving about strippers in the morning. It’s... confusing. I’m too groggy to be aroused, and yet I am.” “We work the night shift,” Hasey replied. “The morning is our night.” “But I mean, haven’t you ever heard of IHOP?” “I like it,” Glenn added, looking over at Sprinkles. Her hair was dark brown, almost black, her skin olive. She had looked tan at first glance, but now Glenn thought he could see some Mediterranean in her, Italian or even Israeli. “It’s private,” he added about the strip joint. “Then why not meet at home? Completely private?” Kyle harped. “Private, yeah,” Glenn said. “And no naked women. Get your head out of your ass.” “Yo,” Hasey scolded Kyle, disappointed that he would even suggest not meeting in a strip joint. Sprinkles returned with their champagne and three plastic flutes. Hasey shook the bottle, shot the cork out towards the stage, and then turned the gushing foam on their mostly-nude waitress. Always in character, Sprinkles giggled and ran away, her high heels clicking rhythmically off into the distance. The men drank their champagne and then a second bottle before finally turning to whiskey. As they drank more and more and the morning grew later and later, they invariably turned to old war stories, of which Kyle had exactly none. “I’m driving for J-Mart some years ago,” Glenn said. “They’re so cheap, they’re using every shady, twice-bankrupt

shipper in Kansas to drive for ‘em. So here I am, getting paid basically cost, on-call all times of the day and night ‘cause we’re working around J-Mart’s schedule. On the other hand, they got us doing our own inventory. We check the trucks in and out ourselves, nobody so much as looking ‘em over. “Warehouse knows this as well as I do, so they ask if I want to make some extra cash. We cleaned that J-Mart out!” Glenn and Hasey laughed. “Did you just not make your deliveries?” Kyle asked. “The warehouse loaded up extra boxes – DVDs, gold bracelets, steaks, anything small and expensive – and then I’d deliver a few boxes less than what the store was expecting. See, so much could go missing each day from the store and the warehouse. They expect it, and so they don’t do nothing about it.” “In retail they call it shrink,” Hasey added for Kyle’s benefit. Both men looked up, surprised. “What?” Hasey asked. “I’ve had a real job before.” “So,” Glenn continued. “J-Mart don’t care, warehouse is in on it, and I’m getting paid.” “How’d you move it?” Hasey asked. “These J-Mart kids at the loading dock. They’d run it all over town, hocking it for a few bucks over what we sold it to ‘em for. Didn’t realize how hard they was really working for it.” Now Glenn and Kyle laughed. Hasey did not. Just six months earlier, Hasey had driven as far as Kansas City to sell nearly-new clothing (all but the tags left on) to hip, second-hand shops. He had also not realized how hard he was actually working. “Why don’t we do something like that?” Kyle asked. “There has to be a rule like that with crystal. We could steal, say, half a pound a week.”

Glenn shook his head. “Has to be a smash and grab job. We think they’ve got a seal on the inside of the trailer. We open it and the seal breaks, the big man knows about it the next day. If he figures out what we’re doing, we ain’t goin’ on unemployment.” “So you’re afraid of this Angel of Death too?” Kyle asked, absent-minded. Glenn frowned at Hasey. “He sells an ounce and you tell him our boss’s name?” Glenn asked Hasey. “Sorry,” Hasey replied, reddening around the nose. “Yes, Kyle. Anzhel Kirillov scares the shit out of me. Everybody I work for, or work with for that matter, scares the living shit out of me. A healthy fear will keep you alive in this business.” Consequently, it was the kind of fear that Hasey did not share. “Look fellas, it’s passed noon, and I got a long drive ahead of me.” “Okay, okay,” Hasey said after a pause. “We are sure that it’s there, we just need to do a practice run and then the real deal. Next week, you’ll drive up to the Selby exit. I’ll call in that you were being tailed. Then we’ll meet and exchange something. Then it’s back to Berin to drop off the truck.” “Exchange something. Like what?” Glenn asked. “I don’t know, G.I. Joe’s. Whatever,” Hasey said. “Then we’ll turn around and make the usual trade off in Berin and I’ll drive the truck into the J-Mart parking lot.” “And when will we do it for real?” “The following week,” Hasey said. “So, a week and a half from today.” “That’ll work for me,” Glenn said. He shook the boys’ hands and stood up. “Yo, Sprinkles,” Hasey called. “Get my friend here a coffee to go.” “My pleasure,” she said, placing her hand on Glenn’s muscular shoulder.

“Do come again,” she said. “Hey, Sprinkles,” Hasey said. “Come over here. Take these dishes away. Get Kyle some coffee too; he’s giving me a ride home.” “I am?” Kyle asked.

V. Glenn left them there with the bill, and made his way for the door. He had to enter a hall and then an outer room before making it outside. Before he’d made it completely outside, Sprinkles came running up to him, a shirt covering her top and a napkin in her hand. “If you’re ever in Berin again,” she said. “Give me a call.” She wasn’t the prettiest woman he’d ever seen, but she certainly wasn’t bad. The boys talked as if the deal would go down any day, but who knew when or if they’d actually pull it off. “Sure thing, Miss,” he said. He looked at her again, studied her cheeks, her lips, and then strode off to his car. Glenn didn’t so much as get into the Firebird as he fell into the bucket seat. He was to drunk to worry about being graceful. In fact, his greatest concern at this point was making it home before he passed out. He started the Firebird up with no trouble as he had much experience driving while intoxicated. He thought he might even be a better driver in some key ways. For instance, because he had to consciously make decisions like turning on the lights or the turn-signal, he was more likely to make them. Many things

had come to pass since February for Glenn as well. For one thing, he had moved out so that he could get his priorities together. Theresa called it a trial separation, but they both knew what it was, and they were both relieved when he finally got the last piece of his furniture out. He would come back some night when he knew she was out of town to get the rest of his money. This all happened around the same time as another milestone in Glenn’s life. After a night of meth-running, Glenn dropped by Nora’s apartment for the usual hour of recreation before heading to his new apartment in Wichita. He was just preparing to split open a snow crab leg with Nora’s expensive looking crab cracker, when she dropped a bomb in his lap. “I’m pregnant,” she said. Glenn wondered aloud if the child was his, at which point she burst into violent, full-body sobs. Knowing only how to behave the way he had his entire life, Glenn took this crucial moment to get up and walk right back out the door he’d come in. He didn’t drive back to Wichita, though. Still unsure what exactly he was going to do, Glenn found himself washed up – as so many intention-less wanderers do – in the bright aisles of J-Mart. Glenn wandered up and down the aisles restlessly. Everything held the attention of his eyes, but nothing could crack the thick shell into his thoughts. Every thought revolved around Nora. What he’d thought he was getting was a new young bride, unburdened by this world. If she was already pregnant, how long would it be until she was just like Theresa? Why even leave his wife at all if what awaited him was similar unhappiness? He could just take the money and run, Steve Miller Band style. But Brazil alone? He couldn’t picture that either. Or rather, he could picture it, but it depressed the hell out of him. The plan all along had been to run off with her to Brazil, take the money from underneath the fountain and the score from the truck and buy a banana farm. To live like two people in love. Glenn didn’t even know if pregnant women could board an airplane, let alone move to a new country. He contemplated all of this as he walked around the J-Mart. He walked in lines, he walked in great squares and rectangles, which was only slightly better than walking in circles. He had been through every single aisle at least once, when he

When she came back, she placed the cup in Glenn’s hand rather than on the table, and looked him right in the eye. It was disarming. For a moment, Glenn even forgot that she was all but naked.

FEASTS & FARE came across a section he didn’t even know existed. How had he avoided it thus far in the hours he’d trekked? Maybe he just wasn’t ready to see it... Minutes later, he was making his purchase and hauling it down the parking lot into his car. The box barely fit into the shopping cart and he had equal trouble maneuvering it into the passenger seat of the Firebird, but he did it. He patted the box beside him and left. Now, three months later, a full season after his night in the J-Mart, Glenn had some of the same hesitations at the back of his mind. But with Hasey assuring him that the plan was on, Glenn felt more certain than ever that he was making the right decision, that this path led to the life he’d always wanted. He turned onto the interstate

headed west. Then a few minutes later, he exited again. The interstate, as roundabout as it seemed, was often the quickest way from one part of Berin to another. By the time he got home, his legs could barely hold him up. He wanted to plop down on the bed more than anything, and didn’t even care if he had to settle for the couch. Nora met him at the door. He hugged her, trying not to press too hard on her pregnant belly. She pulled on his shoulders, burying her head in the nape of his neck, touching his jaw and cheek with the temple of her head. Then she kissed him a hello-peck on the lips. He closed his eyes. When he opened them he could see behind her his late-night J-Mart purchase, a blue bassinet, standing in

“Hasey let his eyes go soft, and when they came back into focus he was staring at the stripper pole. He wondered how often they cleaned it. Probably not that often.” the corner of the living room. “You finally set it up,” he said. “You’ll have to look it over before we try putting him in there,” Nora replied. “But I think I followed the instructions right.” “It doesn’t matter,” Glenn said, smiling. She gave him a look like a deer on the side of the road might give a passing car. “Why?” “Because we’re going to Brazil.” She threw her arms around him again, so happy and hormonal that she was crying. “Yes,” Glenn thought. “This is the right path after all.”

VI. Sprinkles strode back inside, finding Hasey there waiting for her. “Oh!” she jumped, her breasts bouncing beneath the shirt. “You spooked me.” “Sorry,” Hasey said curtly. “Did you know him?” “No,” Sprinkles replied and frowned. “But he looked familiar. Maybe he dropped off keys a few times. He’s the driver, right?” “Yeah. Would he turn on Anzhel?” “No idea.” “Would he turn on me?” “Probably.” Hasey looked down for a moment. “Okay, I guess that will have to do. And he didn’t recognize you?” “Nope. Like I said, I only seen him once or maybe twice before, and they don’t really make eye contact with the girls too much.” “They have the shipments moving on a new system now, ever since

I started,” Hasey explained. “It’s not like when Doug was driving. We can do it, though. I can feel it.” “I hope you’re right. This all just gives me the creeps,” Sprinkles said. “I know, I know.” Hasey said, and hugged the stripper known as Sprinkles. “Hang in there, Brit. We’ve just got a little farther to go. I met him last night.” “Him-him?” “The man himself,” Hasey replied. “I’ve had my suspicions, but the other night confirmed it.” “What happened the other night?” Hasey blushed as he remembered it all, Herbert, the bat, Anzhel’s flashing red eyes. “Let’s just say it was irrefutable.” Sprinkles seemed satisfied with that. She returned to the bar. Hasey let his eyes go soft, and when they came back into focus he was staring at the stripper pole. He wondered how often they cleaned it. Probably not that often. They probably let the sweat and the glitter and the oil and whatever other fluids accumulate until it was nice and slick. This thought plus too much coffee plus meth plus remembering Herbert and the cracking of joints made his stomach jerk forward, and Hasey was off and running for the bathroom where he planted his knees on the floor, sticky with urine and mud and God-knows-what, and put his hands around the fuzzy rim, and emptied the black contents of his stomach out into the yellowed toilet bowl.

Ever watched that scene in Alien where the thing bursts out of the guy’s chest and then he dies? That’s what you’re dealing with this weekly, karmic-ally. Have fun!

Taurus

Stay away from money this week. Like, don’t even buy a soda, if you can help it. I sense bad things if you touch even one quarter. For serious. Also, be wary of forks.

Gemini

Vitamin C. Do it. Don’t question it. Being sick this week would cause you to miss out on something pretty fantastic this weekend, if you know what I mean. You don’t? Oh.

Cancer

Go somewhere different this week. A park, a library, a tattoo parlor; break your routine and you will be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams with joy and fortune.

LEo

Virgo

Sometimes you have to let things go. This is one of those weeks. Let it go. Please. It’s not doing you any good, and will only compound your difficulties this week if you persist in holding on to it.

Spend some time on you this week. Not on beauty or health, but on your character. Examine yourself and step back. Think about how you talk to others. This will help you overcome an obstacle.

Don’t be afraid to be spontaneous this week. Or any week, for that matter. You hold too tightly. Let the reins go for a bit and see how it feels. You can always choke back up later.

Libra

Get in touch with family this week, if you want to get over the tension that’s been irking you. Also, eat some chocolate. Any variety, any form. Life is always better with it.

Scorpio

Sagittarius

Capricorn

Answer the call for your community. Your school could win a share of $1 million with Calling All Communities.

That decision you’ve been debating; this week a woman will help you make it. A stranger. With a plant. I dunno. I’m just calling it how I see it.

Be decisive in love this week. Take charge! Grab him! Whatever you need to do to be heard and understood, romantically, do it! There is no joy for the timid in your sector of the sky this week, so push it.

It’s time to rally!

Aquarius

Pisces

Expect something from the past to land on you 0546_0812_Buckslip_CAC Advocacy.indd this week. And old trophy or lamp, perhaps. It won’t hurt you though, and pay attention to why it came and how it fell. Yes.

Stay in the present this week. You’ve been wandering, wallowing a bit lately. Come here, be here, and feel the burdens lift a bit. Trust me. I know.

SEPTEMBER 13, 2012

Kakuro is the criminal combination of a crossword and Sudoku puzzle. In a kakuro, the numbers are the clues. They denote the total of the digits in the row or column referenced by the number, and always play down or sideways. Within each collection of cells - called a run - any of the numbers 1 to 9 may be used but, like sudoku, each number may only be used once. Help for your impending headache can be found here on the webs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kakuro
