Beer. I bet beer is tasty. I can't drink it, of course. Magazines drinking beer would lead to even less insightful news. And a lot of profanity. Also, shouldn't Oktoberfest be...in Oktober. Or at least October. Geesh. Even I know that. SEP 6 - SEP 12, 2012 FREE ISSUE 54

( Us To You ) Thank you all for coming out last week and celebrating a whole year of The Hype! As we launch into September, we wanted to give you fair warning that there is almost a lethal dose of awesome this month. If you have a fondness for polishing your silverware and ironing creases in your undies, it may be too much for you to handle. As you probably gathered from the cover, there is an Oktoberfest brewing in Manhappening as well as Aggiefest, right down the road as well as OPUS, the annual battle of the bands for KSU. There are lots of opportunities to come out and support local musicians and artists, make a ruckus for a good cause and have a drink and a brat! We have decided that there are no downsides to September as long as you keep up with your community and The Hype will keep bringing you all the updates, features and reviews you can handle! If you have an event that you want to see Hype-d, email us at editor@thehypeweekly.com or just show up to one of our weekly pitch meetings at Auntie Mae’s Parlor on Monday nights at 7:30pm and tell us about it. Carry on faithful readers! Love, The Hype Weekly

HONORING THE BEST: COLLEGE OF HUMAN ECOLOGY RECOGNIZING OUTSTANDING ALUMNI AT CELEBRATION OF EXCELLENCE SEPT. 6 MANHATTAN -- The College of Human Ecology at Kansas State University will recognize seven alumni and one company at a dinner in their honor on Thursday, Sept. 6, at Justin Hall. The event will kick off the college's Celebration of Excellence. At 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, the new $5 million, privately-funded expansion to Justin Hall will be dedicated. The annual awards pay tribute to alumni who have made significant professional contributions to their fields. "We are recognizing highly accomplished alumni and friends who give back to our students and enrich their education in our college," said Virginia Moxley, dean. "This year's honorees work in a broad range of fields, from medicine to gerontology. We are proud to celebrate these

accomplishments." Honorees and their awards are: Scott Rice Office Works, Partner Award. The partnership between Kansas State University's department of apparel, textiles and interior design and Scott Rice Office Works began more than a decade ago. The company hires graduates from the department, provides internships and tours to student groups each year, hosts "hot careers nights" to recruit students to the university and the interior design major, and hosts meetings of the interior design program's Professional Advisory Board. David Dieckman, organizational space strategist for Scott Rice Office Works in Lenexa, served on the Interior Design Professional Advisory Board for more than 10 years. This year the company helped the College of Human Ecology acquire furniture for the Justin Hall expansion. Ron Burns, vice president of marketing and business development, heads the Manhattan office, which opened in May. The local team includes university alumnae Kristen Just, director of business development and interior design solutions, who is an interior design graduate; and Natalie Shoemaker, lead designer, who has a master's degree. Mary Vanier, Friend of the College Award. A 1989 graduate in hotel and restaurant management, Vanier is president of Grand Mere Development Inc. in Manhattan. Before returning to Manhattan in 1999, she worked at The Broadmoor Resort in Colorado Springs, Colo., in special events, marketing and public relations. Among her awards is the North American Interfraternity Conference Foundation's Outstanding Philanthropist Award for her exceptional generosity and philanthropic leadership within the Greek community on a national and international level. She has established endowments and provided leadership for the Gamma Phi Beta International Society and its Kansas State University chapter. At the university she has made significant gifts to the Johnson Cancer Research Center, the Golf Course Management and Research Foundation and Kansas State Athletics. She donated land for Manhattan's first hospice, the Good Shepherd Hospice House. Vanier currently serves on the board of Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan, Kansas State University Foundation and the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation. She is a founder of the Manhattan Community Foundation and the Flint Hills Area Panhellenic Association, and has served on the boards of Kansas 4-H Foundation, Manhattan

Area Chamber of Commerce, St. John's Military School and Mercy Health Foundation. Shawn Sullivan, Public Advocacy Award. As secretary of the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services in Topeka, Sullivan heads a $1.67 billion dollar state agency responsible for promoting the security, dignity and independence of older adults and persons with disabilities. Prior to heading the state agency, Sullivan was an award-winning administrator and executive director of four different aging service providers, helping lead the way for transforming senior-living communities from traditional institutions to residential homes where elders make decisions about their own lives. Sullivan has a bachelor's degree in management and secondary major in gerontology from Kansas State University and a master's degree in gerontology from the University of North Texas. Josh Umbehr, Young Professional Award. A board-certified family physician, who graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in human nutrition in 2003, owns Atlas MD Concierge Family Practice in Wichita. At the university he minored in biology and conducted research on the effects of vitamin A on lung cancer. After graduation from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Umbehr completed his internship and residency with Wesley Family Medicine in Wichita.

SEPTEMBER 6, 2012

MANHATTAN -- Climate change will be the topic of two upcoming conferences at Kansas State University. The first conference will deal with how agriculture and rural communities will be affected by climate change, the latest science, adaptation/mitigation options and educational options for preparing the region. Adapting to a Changing Climate on the Central Great Plains will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, in the Ballroom at the K-State Student Union. It will be followed by Sustaining Kansas: the 2012 Kansas Higher Education Sustainability Conference from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, also at the K-State Student Union. The focus of the Adapting to a Changing Climate on the Central Great Plains conference is on the progress and opportunities in interdisciplinary climate change research by the university and its partners through the Central Great Plains Climate Education Partnership and the Kansas National Science Foundation EPSCoR Climate Change Mitigation program. The conference's keynote address, by Bob Inglis, will be presented at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4, in Town Hall at the university's Leadership Studies Building. Inglis is a former South Carolina congressman who now is the executive director of the new Energy and Enterprise Initiative at George Mason University. Through this initiative, Inglis is leading national-level policy discussions about responding to climate change based on conservative policy principles. The Adapting to a Changing Climate on the Central Great Plains conference program will explore the current state of climate science for the Great Plains; impacts, adaptation and mitigation options facing the Great Plains; and communication and education challenges in our region. The conference will feature plenary speakers, panels and interactive sessions, as well as networking opportunities for connecting to the EPSCoR and Central Great Plains Climate Education Partnership projects and other scholars interested in climate change at Kansas State University. Registration is free through Wednesday, Aug. 29. For more information and to reg-

PURPLE PRIDE ON DISPLAY: K-STATE DAY AT THE KANSAS STATE FAIR PLANNED FOR SEPT. 9 MANHATTAN -- Kansas State University will roll out the purple carpet at the 2012 Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson. The first Sunday of the fair, Sept. 9, is designated as K-State Day with the university as the day's official sponsor. Special outdoor exhibits set up south of 4-H Centennial Hall will share university information, including K-State's goal to become a Top 50 public research university by 2025. Performances on the adjacent Lake Talbott Stage will showcase university musical groups, and pep rallies will feature members of the Kansas State University bands, Willie the Wildcat and cheerleaders. K-State items also will be given away throughout the day on the fairgrounds. "Kansas State University has a proud tradition of partnership with the state fair since it began 100 years ago," said K-State President Kirk Schulz. "The university has turned this opportunity into a strong part of our heritage in providing Kansans with knowledge important to them. Integrating research and education with engagement and outreach is one of our strengths as we move forward to become a Top 50 public research university by 2025." During K-State Day, university representatives will be present at fair gates to welcome visitors and hand out maps, including schedules of performances for Sept. 9 and locations of KState exhibits and booths for the entire 10-day state fair. K-State events at Lake Talbott Stage on Sept. 9 include: * Noon -- Pep Rally * 1 p.m. -- Faculty Jazz Band * 1:45 p.m. -- Concert Choir * 2:30 p.m. -- K-State Band * 3:15 p.m. -- In-a-Chord * 3:45 p.m. -- Concert Choir * 4:30 p.m. -- K-State Band * 5 p.m. – Motorcycle Rally around the fairgrounds * 5:15 p.m. -- In-a-Chord * 6 p.m. -- Pep Rally

MANHATTAN -- Just as football season gets ready to kick off at Bill Snyder Family Stadium, so do efforts by the Kansas State University Police Department to curb underage drinking at home football games. As in past years, campus police will be patrolling parking lots around the stadium, looking for underage drinking and for those who provide alcohol to minors. Alcohol in the parking lots at the stadium and in the surrounding parking lots owned or controlled by Kansas State University is prohibited regardless of age. Although adults 21 and older risk a citation for having an open container, law enforcement agencies are concentrating their enforcement efforts on those under age 21. "This is where we see the greatest amount of binge drinking and the greatest amount of alcohol-related law enforcement calls and medical calls for extreme levels of intoxication," said Capt. Don Stubbings of the Kansas State University Police Department. Each year, officers have seized large quantities of beer and other alcoholic beverages at football games, Stubbings said. "It's not uncommon to confiscate hundreds of cans of beer at larger tailgate parties," he said. "One of the factors that contribute to binge drinking include various drinking games, such as beer pong, and other games that require drinking in various phases of the game." Alcoholic punch mixes pose another danger and often have unmeasured quantities of alcohol, Stubbings said. "People drinking an alcoholic punch may think they are consuming just one alcoholic beverage, but in reality the drink may contain two or three times the alcohol in a common mixed drink," he said. Underage drinking comes at a cost. Fines for minor in possession citations are in the hundreds of dollars, and students may also face university sanctions if the citation was issued on university property, Stubbings said. "We want to remind those who do choose to take a risk and drink to not to drink and drive," he said. "Find a sober driver, use the university's SafeRide program or call a taxi." More information about the SafeRide program, which operates on fixed routes around the campus and adjacent areas Thursday through Saturday nights, is available at http://www.k-state.edu/osas/ saferide/. The Kansas State University Police Department is also partnering with the Kansas Department of Transportation in the "You Drink, You Drive, You Lose"

program. "We will be having a concentrated effort throughout the weekend to identify and arrest those who are driving impaired," Stubbings said. "Starting with a DUI check lane Friday, Aug. 31, the Riley County Police Department, university police and the Kansas Highway Patrol will work together taking impaired drivers off the streets." To receive updates on enforcement efforts and other local law enforcement information, you can follow all three agencies on Twitter: Kansas State University Police, @kstatepolice; the Riley County Police Department, @RileyCountyPD; and the Kansas Highway Patrol, @kshighwaypatrol.

NATION'S HIGHEST-RANKING MILITARY OFFICER, GEN. MARTIN DEMPSEY, PRESENTING LANDON LECTURE OCT. 1 MANHATTAN -- The nation's highestranking military officer is coming this fall to Kansas State University. Gen. Martin Dempsey, the 18th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will present the university's 161st Landon Lecture at 11:30 a.m. Oct. 1 in McCain Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public. Dempsey is the highest-ranking military officer in the U.S. Armed Forces and the principal military adviser to the president, the secretary of defense and the National Security Council. Before becoming chairman, he served as the Army’s 37th Chief of Staff. A New Jersey native and career armor officer, Dempsey is a 1974 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. During more than 37 years of service, he has commanded at every echelon -- from platoon to combatant command -- across the United States and around the globe. "It's an honor to have Gen. Dempsey carry on the Landon Lecture Series tradition of bringing influential military leaders to campus," said Jackie Hartman, the university's chief of staff and director of community relations. "Kansas State University's reputation as a military-inclusive university is built in part on having such leaders share their experiences and knowledge with our students, faculty and the broader community." For more than 40 years, Kansas State University's Alfred M. Landon Lecture Series on Public Issues has brought prestigious speakers to campus. Landon served two consecutive terms as Kansas governor and was the 1936 Republican Party nominee for president of the United States.

“Oktoberfest was originally a celebration of the successful completion of the harvest season,” Yankey told me. “But, also a celebration of being able to drink beer again.”

ktoberfests, Oktoberfests. I’ve heard about them for my entire adult life. “Man, I can’t wait for Oktoberfest this year!” someone would say, and I would frown. Upon their return from these fests, I would flip through their facebook albums, trying to ascertain what was so exciting. Giant glasses of beer, apparently. Men in strange capri pants and suspenders. Blonde girls sporting cleavage of epic proportion. Someone throwing a keg. But what the hell is Oktoberfest about, exactly? According to William Yankey, Assis tant Professor in Interior Architecture & Product Design at Kansas State University and one of the founders of The Little Apple Oktoberfest, it’s about culture, fun and celebration of the harvest. “Oktoberfest was originally a celebration of the successful completion of the harvest season,” Yankey told me. “But, also a celebration of being able to drink beer again.” Apparently during the olden times in Germanic countries, they would brew their various beers in the late spring, but during the hot summer it would spoil if stored normally. So they put it underground, in cool caves, for the summer and would open then as soon as the weather changed and the harvest was over. Keeping the beer stowed during the work season probably helped productivity as well, but I’m just guessing. The traditional Oktoberfest, such as the one celebrated in Munich, Germany centers around what many would consider to be the fruits of good labor; fine beer, great food, camaraderie, music and dancing. The birth of The Little Apple Oktoberfest stemmed from Yankey’s admiration for the traditional Munich Oktoberfest and the results of an informal survey here in Manhattan. “We did a survey around town, both campus and townsfolk, asking what the biggest cultural event Manhattan had going for it, and 9 times out of ten, people would respond Fake Patty’s Day.” Faced with those dismal results (please send all hate mail to jimbo@thehypeweekly.com, bros) Yankey and his good friend Jeff Gill at Tallgrass Brewery found they had no choice but to pursue creating a festival in Manhattan that celebrated something other than binge drinking

tacked to a holiday no one really understood or actually celebrated. “We started thinking, we’ve always wanted to have an Oktoberfest; there’s a lot of German heritage here in this part of Kansas, so we essentially wanted to mimic the Munich Oktoberfest.” The result was the 2010 Little Apple Oktoberfest held at the John & Ruth Ann Wefald Pavilion & GTM Family Center at City Park. They sold out the 500 person capacity quickly, and though the event was a success, in 2011 they wanted to be able to accommodate all the people they had turned away at the inaugural event.

quantities. But Tallgrass isn’t the only brewer at the Fest. Spaten Oktoberfest and Lager, the official beers of the Munich Oktoberfest, will be on tap representing the Vaterland’s finest. Not happy with just local and international talent, the organizers invited a bevy of brewers from across the wide wheat of Kansas to come and share their wares including Free State and 23rd Street Breweries from Lawrence, Granite City Brewery from Kansas City, The High Noon Saloon Brewery from Leavenworth, Crazy Eye Brewing from Hiawatha, and our own Little Apple Brewery.

“Under the tent, Fest-goers will find keg after keg of glorious beer in an enormous variety of flavors.” This year, the Fest is happening on private land on Highway 24 by Dick Edwards Ford and hopes to be able to satisfy more than 1,500 people with fine Kansas and German beer along with traditional food, music and games. Keeping with the authentic theme, this year’s event will be held under the Big Top; a tent that can easily fit more than 1,000 people. Under the tent, Fest-goers will find keg after keg of glorious beer in an enormous variety of flavors. Tallgrass will of course be on hand with all of their usual delights; the IPA, the Ale, the Halcyon, as well as a one of a kind Honey Oktoberfest only available at the Little Apple Oktoberfest. If you know of the mysterious and amazing Firkins that Tallgrass have been releasing upon Manhattan every Friday, imagine that but in large and delicious

If you want to be as authentic to Munich as possible, beer is only the beginning. The next most crucial ingredient is authentic German food. While many food peddlers will be available at this year’s Oktoberfest, such as AJ’s Pizza, Ramblers and Hibachi Hut, the thing we’re most excited for is the authentic German offerings of Jim and Jill Oller. Mr. and Mrs. Oller are the former owners of End Zone Sports Bar and Grill, where they used serve a full German menu. While the full German menu will not be available at the Oktoberfest due to space and time restrictions, there will be a variety of tradition German dishes available. Some of these dishes include weinerschnitzel (a breaded and fried pork product), Jaegerschnitzel (a weinerschnitzel with a brown mushroom gravy),

Staropramen - A quaffable treat out of Prague that's both funky and skunky. A perfect European pilsner, sophisticated enough to make you say "That's so long ago I don't remember" about the night before, and dirty enough to leave you muttering, "Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world..." the next day. Spaten Oktoberfest - The only authentic Oktoberfest at the fest, it's a frothy, malty Marzen characterized by toasty flavors of biscuit and warm bread. Perfect for lubricating the gears of any party (which is what a true Oktoberfest is), it's the beer offered to Americans in Munich when they ask "Where's the Bud Light?". Franziskaner Weissbier - A world class treat that is damn near perfect - this is, by far, the best beer offered at the fest. A true traditional wheat beer brewed in Munich (by Spaten), it's heady and thick, rife with succulent flavors of banana and clove, radically different from our unfiltered American wheat beer. Tallgrass Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat - A true unfiltered wheat beer - they didn't filter out the hops! Nearly legendary by now, this is the perfect summer celebration beer for beer lovers - a bright, psychedelic miasma of citrus and fruit flavors followed by light swirls of hops and malts that's impossible to resist on a hot day. Tallgrass 8-Bit - Where there's beer flowing there's bound to be hop heads lurking and this one's for them. A classic, well balanced American Pale Ale made with fashionably exotic Galaxy hops from the land down under. Just bitter enough for the geeks, and just mild enough for the rest of us. Tallgrass Ale - Though overshadowed by it's more radical kin, Tallgrass's flagship is still a high quality, tasty brown ale full of carmel and toffee notes whose reputation is growing nationally. Those of us who remember it's inital release have grown to take it for granted, but a revisit might be necessary.

knockwurst (served on a bed of sauerkraut), bratwurst (served with pomme fritz, a seasoned and fried potato product) and rote cole (a red cabbage dish). They will also be supplying smoked turkey legs in conjunction with Evolution Smokers. While many in the Manhattan community may not be familiar with a lot of these dishes, there is a fairly large contingent of German heritage in the region that will. Mr. Oller certainly is: “I spent 14 years in Germany, and my wife at the time (Kathy Jo Ross/Oller) cooked at a local bar. I would help out and learned how to make a lot of the traditional German dishes.” Oller says. “After owning our bar for a little while, we wanted to do something different. When me and my wife Jill found out that the German restaurants in Junction City went out of business, we

debated it and decided to give the German community some place to go.” The food that was served at End Zone was a stepping stone towards the invitation to cook for the Little Apple Oktoberfest. While Manhattan’s version of Oktoberfest has only been around for two years now, it is a step in the right direction towards emulating the official Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany according to Oller. “Manhattan is starting to understand the tradition of Oktoberfest as it is done in Munich, Germany,” he says. When asked how his menu compares to the traditional German fare, Mr. Oller simply replied “Authentic.” He then elaborated, “I’ve tried to keep this as authentic as possible. There is nothing better than, when I was working Oktoberfest last year, hearing people say ‘This is the food I remember from Germany’. It meant a lot to

me. It’s like a feather in your cap.” However delightful it may be, “It’s not just about food and beer,” Yankey said, laughing. “We’ll under that big tent, with traditional music from a German Oom-Pah band, the Alpen Spielers.” The Alpen Spielers, consisting of Betty Jo Simon, Mark Cohick, and Paul Roda-

After the Oom-Pah fades from the air around 830pm, two local area bands will take over and close down the festival; The Low End with their eclectic awesomeness from Manhattan and the The Scragtown Werewolves bringing bluesy funk all the way from Salina. Another important feature of the traditional Oktoberfest are contests and feats of strength and prowess. At the Little Apple Oktoberfest, this aspect will be present in three contests: Stein Hoisting, Keg Tossing, and the Most Authentic Costume Contest. Both Stein Hoisting and Keg Tossing are exactly what they appear to be. In the first, the contestant must hoist up in both hands as many full steins of beer as they can for 30 seconds, or a full 1 Liter stein for the longest. In the latter, an empty Tallgrass keg shell will be tossed as far as the strongest may toss it. A unique trophy will be awarded for the keg toss, which will pass from champion to champion. The last competition requires a bit more explanation.

women, the stately (and bosom elevating) dirndl is the weapon of choice. These traditional dresses were worn in Bavaria, Liechtenstein, Austria, and South Tyrol, based on the historical costume of Alpine peasants. In spirit with community awareness and support, $5 from every Oktoberfest ticket will go to Project Purple, a fundraising organization started by KSU students to raise money to fight cystic fibrosis. Last fall, Project Purple managed from raise over $9,000 by pledging to paint the letters of Manhattah Hill purple for every $1,000 that was donated. If Oktoberfest sells the 1,500+ tickets it has available, that’s over $7,500 for Project Purple in one weekend! Shuttles to the Fest will be avail-

apparently be open by then), Bomb Bar, Shot Stop, and Auntie Mae’s Parlor will have special deals for folks possessing the complementary mugs all Fest folks will receive. When asked why someone who had never been to an Oktoberfest before should spend their day at the Little Apple Oktoberfest, Yankey had this to say: “It’s a cultural event; it’s a thing to celebrate will your friends and family. A way to get to know more people in your community. We’re focusing on the community; a way to focus on relationships and businesses within it. It’s going to be a fun time; we’ll be celebrating all day and we think it’s the closest thing you can get to the real thing in the state of Kansas.”

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

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.

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.

Auntie Mae’s Open Mic Comedy Night Revamped Open Mic Hopes To Funny Up Your Tuesday! By Jimbo Ivy Auntie Mae’s Parlor is no stranger to open mic nights; it’s poetry open mic, “Mighty Fine Poetry Night” is entering its fourth year as a monthly show and as for its comedy night, well, we feel it’s about to get serious. Not serious. Funny. Whatever. You know. Having stagnated and then been axed last year, comedy at Mae’s was thought to be dead until two men asked if they could pick up the torch of humor. Luke Fabrizius and Bala Meenakshisundaram, two local comedians who had previously frequented the old Mae’s comedy night, as well as other events around town, decided that the vacuum of funny in Aggieville could not be allowed to continue.

(785) 770-9767 1214 C Moro

“I wanted to give local comedians a consistent home to do comedy,” Fabrizius says, “Auntie Mae’s did that for us for a while, and we all wanted it back.”

(785) 537-3737 1126 Moro St. www.bigpoppi bikes.com

Fabrizius has dabbled in comedy since he was in high school, but never really had a public venue for his funny until he came to KSU and Manhattan. “I came to Manhattan in 2010 and found that there was a decent comedy circuit and did what i could to become apart of that,” Fabrizius says. Luckily for us,

he and his co-horts have decided to take up the fallen mantle of Comedy Night in the Ville, something that used to have several iterations, with Pats, Mae’s, Red Rocks, and other venues having consistent comedy nights in the past. “I performed at both Pats and Red Rocks,” Fabrizius says, “And I don’t know why they seemed to dwindle.” Fabrizius speculates that while it’s common, sometimes comedy and bars isn’t the perfect marriage. But he maintains hope for this new endeavour, “I think if we as comedians put an honest effort into our writing, Auntie Maes could become a consistent show not only for us, but for anyone who wants to see comedy.”

“Playing off what other people say, talking to an audience, and spinning jokes from that,” Mizell says, “I am pumped to host comedy night!” You can catch up with Fabrizius, Mizell and all the folks that plan to bring Auntie Mae’s Open Mic Comedy Night back from the dead this coming Tuesday, September 11th at 9pm. “Anyone and everyone is welcome to come try it out,” Fabrizius says, “Our comedy night has few rules, but we will have a time limit of five minutes.” The event will be every 2nd Tuesday at Mae’s and has a Facebook page at “www.facebook.com/open.micAuntie. maes.parlor”.

As far as the number of folks that constitute “the scene”, Fabrizius doesn’t know exactly how many are left from the old guard. “There are a quite a few that come and go, but a good handful of comedians that have been doing their thing for upwards of 5 years are still here. I consider those guys to be the true representation of Manhattan comedy.” Jordan Mizell, long time funny fella over at the companion Auntie Mae’s Mighty Fine Poetry Night and no stranger to the Comedy Night, will be playing host to the denizens flocking to the basement bar. “I tried doing strand up,” Mizell admitss, “And wasn’t good at it.” Mizell, however, enjoys the interaction of playing host and warming the stage for the funny folks in the audience.

Wade Bowen Longhorn’s Saloon 9/13/2012 10:00pm As Wade Bowen looks ahead to the fulllength 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 hits and awards, but also the kind of fan base whose passionate anticipation motivated the timing behind the May 2012 release of The Given, a 10song collection and his first new music since 2008’s If We Ever Make It Home. Beth Bombara w/ Tabor Rucker Auntie Mae’s Parlor 9/18/12 8:00pm Beth Bombara is a musician from St. Louis, Missouri. She’s glad you’re here. Beth writes and plays her very own songs with the help of a backing band composed of

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

Meet Your Tender: Jeff Zerr Of Mojo’s Beach Bar By Jimbo Ivy

This shot pretty much defines Zerr’s awesome.

...these are all fake. We know they are. Stop it. ...I kissed a girl *incoherent mumbling*...CHAPSTICK! ...online dating reached critical mass. I’m done.

Down at the end of Moro Street, away from the carnage and cloy of the epicenter of the Ville is a quite little vacation get-a-way called Mojo’s Beach Bar. Saturday night, amongst the ruin and roar of post-Gameday Aggieville, tired of one-in-one-outs, The Hype Weekly crew ventured down the street, past the delicious smell of Cozy burgers, to find a little peace in which to get smashed.

...the students were felt with a vengeance. Is it summer yet? ...I just wanted to scream at the cop patiently waiting behind my car as I sat on a bench sobering up. ...Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooo! (Approximately 6.8 seconds of “Woo”)

Enter, Jeff Zerr. Along with his staff of similarly awesome folks, Zerr runs the bar at Mojo’s most nights, serving up party in a glass with a side of friendly one-on-one. We noticed immediately that almost every patron was greeted by Jeff, personally, and seemed to know him to the point of clapping him on the back and hugs. Zerr is not only the tender at Mojo’s, but also the owner/operator of Mojo’s as well as its Westloop cousin, Blackstone Tavern. Despite being an owner, Zerr hasn’t lost the personal touch that makes so many dives awesome

places to get your party on. When we asked for a creative round of shots, he served us up a squadron of “Grenades”, a multi-stage shot that balances two shot glasses against the rim of a pint with energy drink at the bottom. Snatching one shot causes the other to drop (like a grenade pin) and then you shoot both the shot and the dropped result. Combing creative drinks and awesome, friendly atmosphere, Jeff Zerr is one of the reasons we recommend Mojo’s as a nice get-away from mainstream Aggieville.

The ones we cull from our Facebooks when it comes time to hit the job hunt or catch shit from our parents for. Hell there’s an entire Nickelback song about this sort of thing. But I won’t mention them.

...we had another WILDCAT VICTORY! YES! EMAW! ...I rode Bull Snyder. This morning, my ankle is purple. GO STATE! ...kids vomited, police hit folks with sticks, bros fought, and girls wept on curbs with their panties showing. Welcome back, KSU. ...my boyfriend ate pickle he found near O’Malley’s. And I’m still sleeping with him for some reason. ...I got laaaaaaaaaaaaid! Yes. Six month demons vanquished.

SPORTS

WWW.THEHYPEWEEKLY.COM

SPORTSBALL!

SEPTEMBER 6, 2012

written without anything you would consider “performance enchancing” by

George Wame Matthews am beginning to think that I need to change the title of this sports column from “Yay Sportsball!” to “Yay Lockouts!” as that seems to be the only consistent theme in sports these days. In the last two years there have been a number of lockouts. Last summer’s NFL lockout cost the league most of training camp and one meaningless preseason game (the so called Hall of Fame game played the day after the Hall of Fame inductions). There was also the NBA’s lockout, which shortened the 2011-2012 regular season from 82 to 66 games, and brought about the return of the dreaded back-to-back-to-back games. Now there is the NFL’s lockout of its referees, which has lead to the usage of replacement refs for all of the pre-season games and will lead to replacements for at least the first week of the regular season. There is also the threat of a NHL lockout (if the sides cannot come to an agreement before September 15th), but no one really cares about hockey so big whoop (sorry Hogs). As always, the gist of the dispute between the NFL and the NFL referee association (NFLRA) can be boiled down to money and power, the NFLRA wants more money for its personnel and the NFL wants more power over the refs. As was discussed at length during the players lockout last summer, the NFL represents a $9 billion (that’s billion, with a “B”) industry. You would think with that much money floating around, the league and its owners could find an equitable way to share it among all of its employees, but sadly you would be wrong. The three major sticking points in this latest dispute between the owners and the people who make it possible for them to generate said $9 billion dollars have been retirement, number of trained referees, and (naturally) base pay. Under the previous CBA between the NFL and NFLRA, officials were given a pension style retirement plan in which both the NFL and the NFLRA contribute a set amount of money into the retirement plan for the referees. The NFL is asking that the referees switch to a 401k type

I

retirement plan in which the NFL will only have to match the individual contributions of each referee. The NFL is banking on not all of the referees making the maximum allowable contributions to their 401k, thus saving the NFL money. The second major sticking point between the NFL and NFLRA is actually a two-pronged dispute. First of all, the NFL would like to add 21 (or three crews worth) fully trained referees to the current referee pool. These referees in waiting would not be a part of the regular working rotation, but rather be there “just in case” something happened. In the NFL’s eyes, this would ensure that there would be trained referees at the ready to take the place of existing referees should anything happen. The NFLRA, however, sees these refs as ready-made scabs just waiting to take the place of any experienced referee crew that steps out of line with league management. Secondly, the NFL would also like to create one full-time referee crew. Currently, all NFL referees are parttime employees who have a variety of secondary jobs ranging from lawyers to business owners to teachers. The NFL would like to have one referee crew that worked with the league office throughout the off-season to help with training of existing refs, scouting of new personnel, and to work on rules interpretation and implementations year round. One would think that the refs would be ecstatic to have the opportunity to leave their secondary jobs behind to become full-time

workers for the league, but some of these refs are very protective of their often quite lucrative secondary jobs. The NFLRA sees this move as the first step towards making all referees full-time employees. What is more (again, predictably so), the NFLRA does not feel that the NFL is offering to pay these full-time refs enough money as compared to both what they make at their secondary jobs and what other full-time refs make in other professional leagues. Finally there is the issue of an increase to the base salary of the referees. Depending on which side you listen to, the NFL is proposing to increase the current base

pay by either 5 to 11 percent (according to the NFL) or 2.5 to 8.5 percent (according to the NFLRA). Regardless, the NFLRA is looking for a 20 percent increase in pay, which is nowhere near what the NFL is offering. As of the writing of this article, talks had broken off between the NFL and the NFLRA with little sign of them resuming anytime soon. The NFL feels confident that the replacement refs will perform well enough to give them leverage over the NFLRA. Conversely the NFLRA believes that the replacements will perform so poorly that the NFL will have no choice but to give into some of their demands. I don’t know who will be more correct in this situation, but I for one would hate to see an entire season without the NFL referees that I have come to know and love. I hope the two sides can come to an agreement soon. Interesting side note, this may be the last lockout that we see in the NFL for quite some time, as the current CBA that the players agreed to last summer included a no lockout/strike clause for when it expires.

just there stories from the

real WWII experiences of

Pine Camp had yet another great influence on my G. I. days. In fact, it was a cause of worry for 1700 of us. When the scuttlebutt spread around that our medical crews were up to strength and we would soon embark for overseas, the idea hit us all at once: we should have a party! It was a well known fact that the government had never thrown a party for any other military unit going overseas, so we decided to throw our own. Our mess sergeant was an excellent organizer and knew everybody. “Leave it to me, ”he said, “just be ready to lend a hand when I need you.” First, let me point out that there was a spur line of the railroad that branched through the camp. It brought in supplies to the munitions dump, to the mess hall, laundry and other essential services. As soon as the word was out that overseas was imminent, all leaves were canceled; the ‘phone service was discontinued and mail censorship commenced. The switch crew made a daily forenoon stop at the mess hall where coffee and Danish awaited them. When someone asked at our meeting, “How can we have a party when we are sealed up here?” Once again the mess sergeant’s response, “Leave it to me”. He organized collectors on each street to visit every barracks,-enlisted and officers to collect two dollars from everyone. Nearly $4000.00 was gathered. “Keep it mum; be ready to lend a hand if we need you”. Then he went shopping. The mess supply was at one corner of Pine Camp and the switch crew knew their way around. I was properly amazed. I helped unload the box car when it rolled up to our mess hall. There were forty cases of Budweiser, half-cases of various hard liquors and all kinds of finger foods. The tables and seats were stacked up on two sides of the mess hall which left a large open dance floor. When the people arrived, they filled the place, so a lot of seats were moved outside. There was even a three-piece band to play for dancing. I had noticed that for a couple of days there was a plumpish, red-headed girl in the P-X every time I went there. Someone told me to leave her alone. She

spent the day drinking strawberry soda in which she dropped a half dozen aspirin. Anyway, she showed up at the party. I don’t know if there were any other party crashers or not. The train crew was there, of course and a platoon of M.P.’s. They were not needed; the party was boisterous but not misbehaved. At about 1:AM, the party started breaking up. I helped restore the mess hall to operating order; that was when I found a WAAC cap in one of the chair piles. It was different from the nurses’ uniform caps and as far as I could tell, there was only the one WAAC at our party. I took it back to barracks and hung it on the damper handle of the heater, figuring that we could take care of it in the morning, then went to bed. Sgt. Siegel and I slept in the guard room just inside the barracks front door. At 2:30, there was a commotion as M.P’ s swarmed through the place. Ours was the third barracks from the corner. There were no women secreted in the first two barracks, but ours had the

cap hanging on the heater’s damper handle so everything was minutely searched. At breakfast that morning we heard that M.P.’s searched the whole camp. Even though it was the first of June, there was a light frost that night. The M.P.’s found the redhead near the artillery emplacement, frost all around, wrapped in a couple of Army blankets, feebly mumbling, “Rape! Rape!” The next thing we knew, our whole unit (the men) was ordered out, formed in platoons, given open ranks and the red head, in a wheel chair, was rolled up and down each row to make an identification. We were supposed to entrain to the shipping docks that day. Well, she made no I.D. in our group,--in fact, when she rolled by me,

she seemed asleep. It was a great party; everyone seemed to have enjoyed himself; it was the aftermath that nearly fouled everything up. We made it to the docks all right. It was nearly nightfall when we started to board the Queen Elizabeth.

hitless wonder book review

book reviews

thoroughly notated by

whisked through dog-eared pages by

paul hunt

frank seigle “We’re all Africans What ever our color or size We’re all Africans Whatever the shape of our eyes We’re all Africans Way up the family tree And the sooner we get hip to that The better off we’ll be” Jim Wearn from his CD “Howl Lowen” (“Merry Sun”)

I can’t say “I knew the band ‘Watershed’ back in the day.” but I wish I could. The book “Hitless Wonder” is the story of the band “Watershed” from Ohio that almost rose to rock stardom back in the early nineties only to drift into the bargain bin of rock obscurity. This book, a fun and well written true story of a band that soldier’s on to this day on its own terms, is an honest and affirming look at not making it big in the music industry and having fun anyway. Joe Oestreich, the Bass Player and cosongwriter of Watermark spins the tale in two time frames. One, the current tour and the building excitement of a BIG SHOW at the end of the roadtrip. The second a series of flashbacks of he and his boyhood friends Colin and Herb starting and building a band. These parallel universes compare the men as 40 somethings and 20 somethings “living the dream” in separate and contrasting realities. Hitless Wonder is filled with rock veteran philosophy, concert tour anecdotes, New York Studio dreams and low rent club realities. I won’t spoil the end or the middle but let’s just say I’m their newest fan because they created their music the way I’d hoped it would be made, one club at a time. Rock journalism is not known as highbrow literature and this book does not stray from that expectation. However, it is not Teen Beat simplistic. Oestereich writes with catchy riffs and hooks illustrating feelings of frustration and indecision that plagues any musician balanced between art and the 40 hour week. His craft is writing engaging songs and the Hitless Wonder shows his skill transitions well to text. Even when writing about the niche subject of rock and roll, any interested reader can feel his emotions about fear of failure, loss and his undying compulsion to keep the band together. By the end, their mission is more about loyalty to one another, their songs and to their fans than any music popularity chart or sales record. This book is the 90’s alt rock version of artistic integrity. Watershed is the powerpop version of Jean-Michel Basquiat. As the timelines of the narrative converge and the reader is up to date with the present,

we’re all africans

the tone of book changes from wispy warm reminiscence to the tedium and anxiety of getting ready for the big show. Waiting on advance ticket sales reports, wondering if the work is worth it and if the band is viable becomes the main focus. At that point, it is not just a show or a band as the book reveals itself as an examination of relevance. Like a forty-something has been in the midst of a midlife crisis, the author examines his life, his relationship and his art as he careens toward the inevitable status of being an “ex-rock-n-roll-guy.” As a forty-something “never-was” I found this self reflection to be exhilarating. The charm of this book lies in the myth that has played out around the world in countless examples of amateur and semipro musicians. To see a group of guys that stick together from their parents basement, through college and young adulthood, through the petulant changes of musical popularity and fashion is a real treat. To see them do so without a lot of commercial success and still not become a parody of themselves is a triumph. Isn’t that what we wanted from REM or the Dave Matthews Band before they got huge? We all want a band that doesn’t sell out or get big and inaccessible. Hitless Wonder illustrates what is pure and genuine and often times missing in rock and roll. A band that keeps going because they can’t stop with the eternal drive being the music, the fans and companionship. Even if you are not an aging irrelevant musician like myself, you’ll enjoy the story of “Hitless Wonder.”

I’m briefly reviewing here two books: two because they complement each other: The Journey of Man by Spencer Wells and The Seven Daughters of Eve by Brian Sykes. Both came out in the early years of this century and both deal with what human DNA can tell us of our historical journey. Wells’ book focuses on male DNA and Sykes’ book on mitochondrial DNA on the female side, so, with the two one can get a broad overview overall. They do use somewhat different terminology, but it isn’t really confusing. Both books sketch out the development of the study of historical human DNA over a little more than the last decade of the 20th century. Both are personal stories, particularly Sykes, for he seems to have been in the forefront of the development in England and he vividly describes the difficulties entailed in establishing DNA as an historical tool. Both tell the

tale (or tales) in language that is accessible to an educated layperson using only the basics of DNA studies. You get a vivid picture of the people involved and the difficulties and controversies they faced. They also contrast in this because a central figure in the story is Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza who is a giant in the area of genetics. Wells was a student of his, Sykes found himself an antagonist. As a result, in Wells book the view is straightforward and favorable; Sykes found him a giant to be confronted. We can retrieve DNA from bones thousands of years old and, since there are periodical mutations along the way up on both sides, you can trace roughly where and when each lasting mutation occurred. As a result you can trace human movement from Africa, where Homo sapiens began, to the present day. This adds an extremely important tool to both archaeology and historical linguistics (the study of the development of human languages and language families.) The books are not without their flaws. A key map in Wells’ book is almost impossible to read. Wells tends to mix metaphors and Sykes has been taken to task as egocentric and self-promoting and he includes fictional stories about his “Eves.” I have found it extremely grounding when, after reading something in a field I’m not at all familiar with, to go back to reviews and focus on the negative ones. Often they can be more informative than the positive ones, but you need both. The reviews on both books have been very positive over all. If you are interested in the human genome, you would do well to look into these two very readable books and make up your own minds. With these as foundation, I plan next to tackle CavalliSforza’s Genes, Peoples and Languages.

Manufacturing rage

a review of reviews, of “revealing eden” deconstructing race in speculative fiction with

SEPTEMBER 6, 2012

ace reporter sam sargent As I write this review, I am approximately three-quarters of the way through “Revealing Eden: Save the Pearls pt 1” by Victoria Foyt. I suspect this is about three-quarters more of the book than most of its detractors have read. The novel, the first of an intended trilogy, was the subject of an Internet brouhaha (remember Kony 2012?) as a result of claims of racism leveled against it. One of the most often repeated facts about the book that supposedly proves its racist nature is the fact that the black love interest of the white main character is described as a “beast man”. What is left out of this accusation is the fact that the character has his DNA spliced with that of a jaguar, an anaconda and a harpy eagle, rendering him a half-human/half-animal hybrid. The fact that so many people are completely ignoring that the character is literally half-beast, choosing instead to focus entirely on the race of his human half speaks much more to the racism of the accusers than of the author. Another point of contention is the skin darkening compound worn by all of the white characters, also exhibited by the actress who portrays the main character in a promotional video for the book. “It’s blackface!” insist the incensed crusaders, fighting to rid the world of anything potentially offensive. The story takes place on a future Earth in which the pollution crisis was left unchecked, causing temperatures to sky rocket and the ozone layer to deplete entirely. The world is bombarded by solar radiation that has destroyed the once green planet. Whites, possessing the least melanin (the pigment that protects living things from ultraviolet light), die in great numbers. Blacks, possessing the most, become the dominant race. People live underground to escape the certain death of the sun. Whites wear a dark coating to protect themselves, but also to appear more like their black oppressors who, as the dominant race, serve as the standard for beauty. But to call it blackface is disingenuous. Do these look like the same thing to you? If so, you might be a racist. And you

probably think spray tanning should be outlawed under hate crime laws. The biggest outcry, however, has been in regards to the terms used to describe the races within the book. Blacks are referred to as “Coals”. Whites are referred to as “Pearls”. Coal is dirty! Coal is cheap! Pearls are beautiful and valuable! These terms are clearly racist! Well, in this case the rabblers have a point. The terms are racist. I know this because the book explicitly states as much when it says that a white character who calls a black character a “coal” is using the most racist term she knows. But having racist characters in a book does not make the author racist. “To Kill A Mockingbird”, a much beloved classic, contains the word nigger some 48 times. Does that make Harper Lee racist? What is racist is taking the negative traits of an object and prescribing them to a race of people. Why must one see coal being compared to a black person and focus on the grime? Why can’t one see it as coal being numerous (as are the blacks in the story) and useful, whereas pearls are rare and serve only superficial purposes. Were the world’s supply of pearls to disappear, little would change outside of the jewelry industry. If our supply of coal were to vanish, we’d suffer through many a cold and poorly lit night until we replaced all of our coal burning power plants. The saddest thing of all is that I’ve now written well over 500 words about a book without so much as a single comment on the quality of the writing or on the story being told. Knowing that it was a self-published science fiction title, I fully expected

the Revealing Eden to be horrible. By horrible, I mean as bad as some of the essays I’ve helped GED students revise. The proverbial demon’s diarrhea. It was... not bad. The writing is decent, at the very least. Victoria Hoyt is no Fyodor Dostoyevsky or Jack Kerouac but she’s certainly better than, say, Dan Brown or Jonathan Franzen. The book makes for an easy, if not particularly memorable read. Only once did a sentence strike me as particularly interesting (though not interesting enough to dig back through the pages so as to quote it) but neither did I ever find myself thinking that any particular line was bad. The main character, Eden Newman, is a bit annoying, but I can probably count the number of protagonists of YA novels that don’t annoy me without taking off my mittens. To be fair, Eden does only have six months to find a mate or else be left to die. The Uni-Gov doesn’t have any use for unmated 18 year olds. And she never becomes completely unlikeable. Even at her most stupid, it’s obvious that she’s destined to change. If only there were a cure for stupid outside of fantasy novels... If you are a fan of dystopian sci-fi, I encourage you to give the book a chance. A historic depiction of black-face side by side with a depiction of the book’s protagonist Barring some from the author’s website.

massive shift in quality in the last sixty pages, I’ll certainly be picking up the second volume when it’s released. If you really want to, you can pour over the treatment of institutional racism, pollution, and overuse of the Internet. Or you can just sit back and enjoy an easy read. Whatever you do, however, don’t bother debating the merits of the books with any of the zealots declaring it racist. They probably haven’t read it or, if they have, they probably suck at reading. On the list of the top seventy five million things the world needs more of, “arguing about books you don’t understand” ranks slightly below “clogged toilets” and “carnivorous cacti.” Can’t we all just get along?

The opinions of our writers do not express the opinion of the Hype Weekly as a whole. Let it be understood that words and images found offensive in this article are not intended to be used as pejoratives, but to make a wider audience aware of the controversy surrounding the book this review is addressing.

Movies by Marcus Film and Movie-like stuff From the celluloid clogged synapses of

Marcus Jay

L

awless is an okay film that would have been better if more work had been done at the screenplay level. As it stands, this film falls into a gray area; it’s neither good nor awful. It contains great performances from the main cast and good direction from John Hillcoat. This is all undermined, however, by a script that isn’t sure how to tell the story. The film opens in 1931 on the tail end of prohibition. Brothers Jack (Shia LaBeouf), Forrest (Tom Hardy), and Howard (Jason Clarke) Bondurant run a successful bootlegging business in the hills of Franklin County, Virginia. Nearly everyone, it seems, in Franklin County have moonshine operations, but the Bondurant family does it best. Everything runs smoothly until corrupt District Attorney Mason Wardell (Tim Tolin) shows up, demanding a tax from the local bootleggers. Everyone caves but the Bon-

durant brothers. To this end, Wardell brings in a hired gun from Chicago named Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce) to coerce the Bondurant boys into paying the bribe. But, what starts out as a shakedown, becomes a battle of wills between the brothers and Charlie Rakes. Added to this, are two women: Maggie (Jessica Chastain), a former showgirl looking to lead a quiet life and Bertha (Mia Wasikowska), an Amish girl that the young Jack Bondurant falls head over heels for. The standout actors in Lawless are Guy Pearce and Tom Hardy. Pearce’s character, Charlie Rakes, belongs in a completely different film though. Rakes is an unhinged psychopath who apparently delights in, amongst other things, holding young black maids hostage in his hotel room and quoting scripture to them. This guy just belongs in a different universe. Pearce is

wonderful in the role, however, with severely parted hair and nearly non-existent eyebrows. Rakes comes across as reptilian, he’s severely clean, and yet, oddly oily. Tom Hardy delivers the other great performance. His Forrest Bondurant is a guy you wouldn’t dare mess with; some unfortunate characters learn that lesson the hard way. Forrest is the brain of the bootlegging operation and most of the muscle as well. Lawless has several themes in common with director John Hillcoat’s earlier film The Proposition, among them brotherhood and men driven to be outlaws. However, this film fails where The Proposition succeeded. Screenwriter Nick Cave (yes that Nick Cave), fails to develop proper story momentum; Rakes appears and then disappears from the story, the Bondurant’s seem to be able to move about freely for people under threat of death or incarceration. We never

get a clear idea of why Charlie Rakes has been called in or why he is such a lunatic and the romance between Jack and Bertha is seriously under developed. I wouldn’t call this a bad film, but I hesitate to call it good. There are simply too many poorly plotted or less than fully developed points in the story. John Hillcoat is a talented director, but he can’t overcome such a poorly realized screenplay.

an artist’s haven

open oil painting studio at the mac glazed over with linseed oil by

sarah sullivan It is hard to find a creative environment more low key and welcoming than the Open Oil Painting Studio that is held at the Manhattan Arts Center Annex every Thursday night. The group was formed in November 2010 when William Groce, the humble founder of the Oil Painting Studio started looking for other people in the Manhattan area who had a similar passion for oil painting and wanted to meet on a weekly basis. The Manhattan Arts Center was only too happy to provide a space that has become a haven for these artists. The group usually includes five to seven painters and meets on Thursday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 in the Creative Arts Center annex to the MAC at 1500 Poyntz. The Studio is open to anyone

who wants to paint with oils. Each painter brings their own supplies and creative ideas. They share input with one another, often gaining new ideas and practice for

technique, style, and critical insights. Anyone interested in visiting the group is welcome to stop in and either see how they interact or just come and paint. The cost is only $5.00 monthly. “People of all levels of skill come, from beginners and people who are just interested in oil painting to artists who have been painting for years. Everyone is welcome here.” William said. This open studio is one of several that the MAC has to offer. Currently, there is also an open Watercolors Studio on Wednesday mornings from

9am to 11am, and a Clay Studio from 6 to 9pm on Wednesday nights. The Oil Painting Studio group is relatively small, ranging in size from five to twelve people depending on the week. Whether you are a fledgling or a master painter and you’re interested in becoming part of this studio family, contact the MAC at (785) 537-4420 or William Groce at begroce@yahoo.com. After only a few minutes in the room with these talented individuals, I could tell that this wasn’t a cold impersonal studio: these are people drawn together by a passion who have become close because of a weekly gathering and a desire to create art.

brought to you by:

punk retrospective

online only from the creator of the clash stacked horizontally without feeling “pressured” by

Paul Hunt Ten years ago, Joe Strummer took his dogs out for a walk and died on the streets of London. This is the man that brought us the band "The Clash" and in turn, brought UK punk to the world. His most recent work is showcased in a new release of the Hellcat records albums in one package. The Hellcat Years in it's sprawling 57 cuts is a celebration of a man who celebrated music from around the world. Though it seemed strange to re-release a retrospective like this in an Online Only version so the purchaser doesn't get new packaging or extended booklets or photos or such, the more I listen, the more I see the meaning in this endeavor. The fact that I can pigeonhole Joe Strummer in the punk genre is a horrible generalization on my part. But I'm doing that to give you a reference point. Punk is where we will start. In his years with The Clash, he and his co-workers managed to transfuse the genres of pop, rock and disco with the energy and desperation

of punk. There was an exchange. The Clash brought us punk and they absorbed the music of the world in the agar of their musical expression. As you listen through the Hellcat Years collection, you may find Joe and the Mescaleros as wonderfully unfocused as an ADHD kid in a video game store. You will hear straightforward rock jams, reggae, ska, folk-ballad and irish music in broad strokes and in the details. Simple "three chords and the truth" formats embellished with dub lo-fi production, traditional instruments and samples and sonic washes that make listening with headphones a rich experience. What was startling to me, is how well this material flows together in one presentation. It always sounds like him. There's "that voice," his close-to-off-key but even when he's not singing, you can still tell he is there in the music. Often, when you hear an artist over time, their development becomes a distraction as they change album to album. On The Hellcat Years, they

sound like they could have all come from the same recording session. So taken as a whole, the body of work that comes from Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros shows a consistency of vision even through their incredibly diverse palate. This retrospective is only half of the deal though. There's a whole section of b-sides and live performance that demonstrate the the sheer joy of his performances. In other collections you are bound to hear the remixes and unreleased and often this is only for the superfans who huddle around the speakers listening for the minute details. However, the live recordings are raw and alive with energy. Unlike many artists who plop out the hits in performances that

These recordings, the entire collection shows that he was unsatisfied with glorifying his past and his youth as just being "that guy from The Clash."

Have you visited Sisters of Sound lately? Whether new to town or a lifelong resident, there is seemingly always a reason to visit Manhattan's best record shop. The Hype Weekly spent an afternoon with Sarah Cunnick -- call her Sarah Sue, please -- to take a look at some of her favorite, best-selling and oddest records.

Record They Can't Find: Fly Like An Eagle On the other end of the spectrum, Sarah Sue can't seem to find enough Steve Miller Band records to keep on the Sisters of Sound shelves. Whether it's Children of the Future, The Joker, Fly Like An Eagle, or a number of his other popular records, Steve Miller is maybe as popular in Manhattan, KS as he ever was. Oddest Record in the Store: English Muffins by Mystic Mood Orchestra If you're bored one day, I beg you to visit Sisters of Sound and ask Sarah Sue to talk about this record. The 1970 album is a lounge-y collection of British pop covers. It's worth asking about just for the fantastic cover art, which Sarah Sue proudly displays near the register. If you're nice enough, though, you may get to hear delightfully bizarre covers of classic pop arrangements (The Beatles' "Ticket to Ride") and one-off UK hits ("Love Grows [Where My Rosemary Goes]").

Hottest New Release: Blunderbuss The White Stripes were already a top seller at Sisters of Sound -- in fact, Sarah Sue just put a new copy of White Blood Cells on a shelf this week. It may be gone by the time you read this. Blunderbuss might not be around, either. Sarah Sue says that Jack White's solo debut has been the top seller amongst recent releases from bands like The Black Keys and Mumford & Sons. Trendiest Record: The Chronic Sisters of Sound has seen a resurgence in sales of '90s hip-hop records. Dr. Dre's The Chronic has been at the forefront of this local trend. If you see it or its ilk at other shops in the area, do Sarah Sue a favor and bring it by. She'll be able to sell it, perhaps even that same day. Record They Can't Sell: Pablo Cruise While perusing a new collection that had been dropped off at her shop, Sarah Sue confessed that she can never seem to sell Pablo Cruise records -- whether it's the self-titled debut, or any other record from the easygoing '70s group.

A Rare One: Little River Band's Greatest Hits One of the joys in working in a record shop is finding a rare version of a seemingly run-of-themill record. Sarah Sue's latest find is a direct metal master of the 1982 Greatest Hits pressed for Little River Band. The band isn't necessarily a must-buy, but the type of record is. Of course, Sarah Sue is quick to add: "It's still a Little River Band record!"

If you've been waiting for the right time to sell A Place in the Sun, you haven't yet found it.

Record You Need To Hear For Yourself: Bellybutton Asked to recommend one record that Manhattan may not be familiar with, Sarah Sue was quick to recommend the work of the '90s band Jellyfish, particularly their debut record Bellybutton. She says of the band: "No one knows about them unless you worked in a record store in the '90s," she explained. Fortunately, Sarah Sue did. If you still need to be sold, though, you

should know that guitarist Jason Faulkner mentored current Raconteur Brendan Benson. Biggest Haul: The Velvet Underground & Nico Sisters of Sound's biggest triumph in used record sales came a few years ago, when Sarah Sue and her sister sold a third pressing of the famous Velvet Underground debut record. Yes, The Velvet Underground & Nico features Andy Warhol's iconic banana artwork, and the store's copy had an unpeeled banana on the front of its sleeve. The shop sold the record online for $170, but Sarah Sue noted such a sale is a rare one. "We sell stuff for people to listen to," she explained. "If you want to collect, go collect stamps or coins or something." Favorite Record Store Day Release: Too Many To Name Record Store Day is a holiday for someone like Sarah Sue. And asked about her favorite release, she simply had too many to name: The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends collaborative project was a recent favorite, as was the re-release of Pet Sounds on 78's and the pink vinyl pressing of the Pretty in Pink soundtrack. Sarah Sue appreciates how "purposeful" Record Store Day releases are, explaining that labels "are not flooding the market, they're making it special." Excited yet? If so, mark your calendars: Record Store Day 2013 falls on April 20. Come Buy This Record: Coldplay's "Up to the Birds" / "UFO" Of course, not every Record Store Day release is an immediate hit. There are plenty of Coldplay 45's on the shelves at Sisters of Sound from Record Store Day 2012. If you're a fan, why not come down and buy one or two or ten?

Record Cover You Have To See To Believe: The Unicorn Sarah Sue thinks The Unicorn, a 1969 covers record by The Peter Pan Pop Singers and Orchestra, might be one of the funniest record covers she's ever seen pass through her store. If you can't make it to the store regularly to see such treasures, she recommends following the Sisters of Sound Facebook page, where they post about both the hottest and funniest records passing through their store. Don't Even Try It: 45's and 78's Sarah Sue had a hard time identifying any one band or record she'd never buy. As evidenced by the aforementioned Little River Band record, there's always a reason to look at and consider a record. But Sarah Sue has pretty much ruled out 45's and 78's lately. She and her sister simply cannot sell them. "We have to be choosy due to our space," she offers. "But I never say never." While 45's and 78's may not be movers at Sisters of Sound, she urges potential sellers and buyers to visit. "Everybody should come in," Sarah Sue says. "Everyone should explore. And don't not buy a record because you don't have a turntable. You can find a turntable anywhere. But you might not find that special record again."

FEASTS & FARE

seeking a taste of philly in manhattan

reported from under a layer of cheese and onions by

John carroll

patio

As a newly arrived East Coast transplant, there's a lot that surprised me about life in Manhattan. But nothing has been more peculiar to this writer than the number of Philadelphia Cheesesteaks available from Manhattan's dining establishments. As a born and raised Philadelphian, I decided to sample Manhattan's many offerings and report back on my findings. A cheesesteak is a simple sandwich: sliced steak and cheese on a long roll. Diners can top it as they see fit, but the simplicity and flexibility of the sandwich is a part of its appeal. With that in mind, I can rule out one sandwich immediately. Aggieville's Planet Sub offers a wide array of sandwiches, but their Cheesesteak ($4.79-$8.19) is not their finest offering. Roast beef, mozzarella and Italian dressing? I'll be the one in the Phillies hat protesting outside. But if a cheesesteak in Kansas surprised me, a cheesesteak in a Cuban restaurant in Kansas put me through the looking glass. The Patio offers a much more traditional cheesesteak ($7.99) than Planet Sub, but the sandwich struck me more as a chore than a taste of home. Their steak was cut into thick, overcooked slices. Combined with the chewy baguette, my jaw was sore and I found myself longing for the restaurant's authentic dishes,

vista

cozy inn

like their Ropa Vieja. It might be a long way from Philadelphia, but it's the type of dish they do right. Fortunately, The Vista Drive-In ($4.69) and Tubby's ($6) offer sandwiches that come much closer to something I might find in South Philadelphia. While both offered steak that was too dry, their steak was thinly cut and topped with plenty of melted, sliced cheese -- a step-up from the Cheez-Whiz preferred by many Philadelphians. Vista scores points for not going crazy with unnecessary toppings (Tubby's adds a spicy sauce and jalapeĂąos), while Tubby's distinguishes itself with its better presentation. Theirs simply looks more like a Philly cheesesteak than the Vista sandwich. Of course, the common wisdom in Philadelphia is that if it's redundantly named a "Philly Cheesesteak," it's not actually a good cheesesteak. Unsurprisingly, Manhattan's best cheesesteak isn't called a cheesesteak at all. The Cozy Inn Grinder ($4.89) is the most delicious and faithful Philly cheesesteak in town. Their grinder is simple, taking a no-frills approach in only offering steak, cheese and onions. Cozy Inn cooks the steak just right, and serves it piping hot right off the grill. Even the ambiance is spot-on: with the cook positioned in the window

for the world to see, I would only need more humidity and a blackand-white decor to picture myself in Jim's on South Street. If anyone wants to plunge further down the cheesesteak rabbit hole, there are plenty of other sandwiches around town that look nothing like a cheesesteak, but pack plenty of the same flavors and spirit. For Mexican flare, try the Fajita Cheesesteak ($8.99) at Coco Bolo's. Or, for a deconstructed cheesesteak with a Midwestern touch, sample the Steak N' Cheddar Melt ($8.75) at So Long Saloon. And if all of this meat and cheese is simply making you queasy, grab a booth at Early Edition and order their Philly Cheesesteak ($7.99). What it lacks in authenticity is made up when you leave the table guilt-free -- their sandwich is packed with thick, tall slices of green peppers and onions. The meat and cheese are a seeming afterthought, but so

are the calories. It's not authentic, but like many of Manhattan's offerings, it's familiar and satisfying on the tongue.

MIND GAMES

Marginally Sarcastic Horoscopes

Compiled from ancient runes found conveniently in the alley by Dara’s!

It’s gonna go down rough this week, my horned friend. Round the 1st or 2nd. Show your 'reasonable side' especially over issues involving sexual behavior or FOOball. Horn-ication appears most promising for you single folk this week during the sweaty days like the later hours of the 30th AND 1st, part of the 2nd and especially the later hours of the 3rd, most likely with Aries, Leo, Cancer, Virgo or Pisces.

Its tough to be a crab sometimes. But this week, things are looking up! A previous disaster will right itself, leaving you in possession of a large package you did not expect. Be generous with its contents; sharing is next to kindliness. Your late week may be somewhat insane; several birds will harass you, errands and spending may blend into a plethora of confusing decisions; seek aid from Capricorn, Libra, Taurus, Pisces and Virgo.

Romantic interludes will be frequent and brief this week and may send your heart into overload, especially IF you are paired to Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Capricorn or Cancer. Know that cold is better than hot this week, when it concerns your color palette. Favors will be sought by an old acquaintance; be generous, for signs point to unexpected benefits. Be wary of all cloven-hoofed animals this week. Stick to birds, seaweed, and imitation crab.

Peril! Life will be demanding of you this week, my friend. Fend it off with cunning and a sense of who can be trusted. Evaluate, ruminate, and then act when others least expect it. Also, get back in the gym. Seriously. It’s time. Don’t buy new pants, just go. Wander into a flower shop this week for a surprise from the past. Seek out a man with blue eyes for aid in your troubles with a mechanical device. Most of all, stay the course.

A coworker will approach you to ‘bury the hatchet’ or ‘mend fences’ this week, particularly near the 4th when ‘favors may be done for you’. Don’t trust them. Spray salt or perfume or aroma therapy juice in their eyes and run away, for they are treacherous. Beware large dogs this week. And cans of beef-a-roni. Look to Aquarius for companionship, but don’t except anything more than 2nd base and some heavy spooning.

Play nice this week! Friends may be instrumental in assisting in both your personal life AND your career needs, this week as there are several indications of favors done. Around the 3rd, a stranger will meet you on a dark corner, offering their assistance. Take it. They are not what you think they are, but will help you find some answers that you have been seeking. Look to a favored book for advice on love/cooking.

I sense anger in you. Deep and welling. Do not let it get in the way of any wagers you lay down this week, unless it involves vehicles with more than four wheels. Make provisions for a long stay out of town this week, in the wild. While ticks will avoid you, moths will be an issue. Financial arrangements should be quashed during this phase; you’re unlikely to be wise in the ways of legitimate money when so passionately distracted.

Strangely enough, it is from water that your danger comes this week. Not a Kraken or giant shark, but from a low co-efficent of friction. AKA watch out for slippery floors.

Love will come to from a source you’ve been desiring for some weeks now, but you will rebuke it, as you often do, because of your pride. Seconds chances abound, though, so be wary of rooms lit by flame and smelling of Febreeze.

Seeking new companionship may cause an old entanglement to become jealous and seek you out. Beware. Jealousy, as the ancients say, is a green eyed fish, from which all evils leak. Remember to check your pockets frequently. You will forget things this week; keys, mice, cantaloupe. Phone a genial family member; they MAY be dealing with a dilemma, especially near the 31st to 2nd.

It’s time to spend some money. I know, it may not seem like it, but a new wardrobe, commemorative shot glass, or bowl of rubies is just what you need to spice up your love life this month. On that note, be wary of circular rooms, especially IF Pisces, Aquarius, Cancer, Taurus or Capricorn are involved. Nearing the end of the current phase, you may get some unexpected news, so wear a shirt you don’t mind getting your Hawaiian Punch on.

Put away the arrows this week and relax; nothing is coming that you cannot handle, expect in the way of family. Expect an uncle, or mother-in-law to present a difficult problem. Be honest, and vengeful. Locate a pig farm, if worst comes to worst. Be mindful of youth around you; someone your junior is seeking you out romantically. Just not too junior, cause, ya know, that’s like really gross and such. Yes.

And lastly, you, my little friend. Keep to yourself this week, but be mindful of others. A man with a hook on his hat will ask you question that is more important than it seems. Also, carrots should be avoided. Don’t ask; you don’t want to know. Look to your animal friends this week instead of bi-peds. A dog you do not know will show you a path you’ve been hunting, take it and do not worry where it leads. A light man seeks to cause you humiliation and defeat.

Kriminal Kakuro

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
