When we were first approached to sponsor the Steamtown Beer and Music Festival, I immediately wondered, “Why hasn’t someone created this sooner?” After all, if there are two things NEPA loves, it’s beer and music. But it’s not just any beer and any music – it’s great beer and great music. For about $50, you can either welcome back hometown punks The Menzingers

social Carlos Adrianzen

(page 29) while tasting over 200 beers or rock out to Fuel (page 31) while imbibing those same brews, which include local beers by 3 Guys and A Beer’d (page 28). It’s a great deal either way. Beer and music may be part of your regular routine, but something like this only comes around once a year. Let’s bring it back next year by making this inaugural fest a success. -Rich Howells, Weekender Editor

Spend your summer break with these bands Summer 2013 is in full effect in the Wilkes-Barre area. The pools have been opened, the air conditioner units have been nestled into their window homes, and with that we have thrown away our dreams of snowplows and shovels and replaced them with sunglasses and swimming trunks. Just like all of the school students who recently finished their school year, I am currently on summer vacation. This is the first summer that I have been able to spend at home since I graduated high school, and, oh boy, what a treat it is. We are not even halfway into June and there have already been great shows. Turnstile, Disengage, King Nine, Angel Du$t, and Blind Justice played to a packed house in Nanticoke, and just this past weekend, Stick Together, Intent, Demolition, Ancient Heads, and Big Contest put on a great show at the Glen Lyon American Legion. This Friday, there is a Title Fight show with Merchandise, Milk Music, and Destruction Unit at Underwood Skatepark in Taylor. One of my favorite local establishments, Gallery of Sound (the Mundy Street location to be exact), is having a show for Scranton’s Captain, We’re Sinking on June 20 in honor of the release of their record “The Future Is Cancelled” on Run For Cover Records. Also, a show on July 1 was just announced at the West Side Park in Nanticoke with Rude Awakening, Criminal Instinct, Not Til Death, Stag-Nation, and Life of Reilly. Criminal Instinct will be making their NEPA debut, while the rest of the show is filled with some

of the area’s best bands. Not Til Death has new music, Stag-Nation is influenced by Discharge, and Life of Reilly will be making their real hometown debut. The summer is continuing to roll on with more and more great shows and summer activity. Additionally, one of WilkesBarre’s biggest and best acts, Cold World, recently played Philly. For those who don’t know, Cold World has been talking about releasing the follow-up to their LP, “Babies Who Came Feet First,” for a couple of years now. However, the band has recently been posting pictures from their tour from the Chaos In Tejas festival of the band recording in various hotel rooms. These pictures were welcomed by fans who have been patiently waiting for new Cold World songs. We will still have some time to wait until we hear new music, but it’s finally clear that they are working on it. Not too much has been released other than that this is a new LP, and various slogans have been thrown around on shirts that were potential name candidates, such as “How the Gods Chill.” Will this be the title? We don’t know. But hopefully the news will be coming very soon to follow up the string of pictures. It’s great to sit back and relax for once, but it’s even better to sit back and have things to anticipate like new shows and new music. All these things going on make my job of reporting on the local music scene very easy. Keep up the good work everyone, and enjoy your summer break. I know I will.

What

…has modern rock trio Sick Puppies been up to? The group just released its third and most ambitious album, “Connect,” and they will tour in support of it this summer, landing in Allentown on Aug. 18. “There are two ways to shoot yourself in the foot: never changing, or changing too much,” said Puppies co-founder/singer/guitarist Shimon Moore of the musical balance the band has found on its new release. The show will take place at the Maingate Niteclub (North 17th St., Allentown). Tickets, which are $18 in advance and $20 the day of the show, will go on sale June 14 at 10 a.m.. They can be purchased via ticketmaster.com, charge by phone at 800.745.3000, and at all Ticketmaster retail locations including Walmart and Boscov’s, and at the theater box office on North 17th Street in Allentown.

Why

W

…visit the University of Scranton Houlihan-McLean Center on June 16? Because at 7:30 that night the Scranton Brass Orchestra is playing. The ensemble will play under the direction of Mark Gould and Cheryl Y. Boga, with special guest Sam Pilafian on tuba. Admission is free.

Theatre in the toilet

By Sara Pokorny

Weekender Staff Writer What do you do in the bathroom? Maybe it’s a place of rest, of contemplation, or something you simply will not share with anyone because, hell, it’s the bathroom after all. For the next three weekends, eight local playwrights will share exactly what they imagine has gone on in the bathroom at some point through a compilation of one-acts entitled “PlayRoom: In the Bathroom,” put on by the Gaslight Theatre Company. This is the second show of its kind, with last year’s production paying homage to the kitchen. The concept is simple, though a little daunting when looked into. “Each playwright received a basic set design description, but no actual images, of a bathroom, and were told to write a play centering on that design,” one of the show’s directors, Brandi George, said. “So it’s just one set, the entire time, but it’s always interesting to see how the different playwrights pulled from that setting.” The set never changes, except for some small touches here and there, leaving the audience to witness the same place over and over again, but with changing meanings for each act that vary from the funny to the touching. “A lot of the scenes focus on everyday problems, occurrences,” George said. “One scene I’m directing deals with a slice of time where two people meet at a wedding reception and,

while nothing really comes of it, it’s a nice tender moment that we get to witness.” George said there are scenes that center on family squabbles, some contain deep soul searching, and yet others are quirky, such as a conversation a woman has with herself and her imagination, struggling to incorporate that imagination into a life of working at the DMV. The eight playwrights contributing are Kait Burrier, Jennifer Hill, Matthew S. Hinton, Maureen McGuigan, Lori M. Myers, B. Garrett Rogan, Rachel Strayer, and Lukas Tomasacci. George calls this a “short and sweet type of theater,” making it perfect for any audience. Each short runs about 10 minutes a piece. And from this point, it’s all about the bathroom and beyond. “We are always trying to think of creative rooms to play in,” George said. “We want to have a whole house full of plays. We’re still in talks of what we’re going to do next year, but the attic has been brought up; I’m always pulling for a fallout shelter, but we’ll see.”

“PlayRoom: In the Bathroom:” June 13-15, 20-22, 7:30 p.m.; June 16, 23, 2 p.m.; June 27-29, 7:30 p.m., Downtown Arts (47 N. Franklin St., Wilkes-Barre). $10, general admission; $8, students and seniors. Mature audiences only.

Audiences get ‘big top’ action in ‘Annie’ By Sara Pokorny

Weekender Staff Writer

Sure, “The Great Gatsby” caused quite a stir this summer with its glitz and glam, but Theatre at the Grove in Nuangola is pushing the clock back even further, inviting audiences to experience the fun of the Wild West through its production of “Annie Get Your Gun.” Grab a seat and get comfortable under the “big top” as you witness the spectacle that is Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. “We want you to feel as though Buffalo Bill took his show on the road and brought it right to the Grove, here for all of us to enjoy,” director Mike Wawrzynek said of the feel of the show. “Annie Get Your Gun” is a story based on real-life people, relaying the tale of renowned sharpshooter Annie Oakley (played by Amanda Reese), who finds herself swept away by the Wild West Show. Oakley is not only taken aback by the show itself, but by Frank Butler (played by Chris LaFrance), the show’s headliner, who steals her sights right from her gun barrel. The show was first brought to Broadway in 1946, but this production is based off the 1999 revival, making it what Paul Winarski, who plays Chief Sitting Bull, calls “a show within a show,” with Buffalo Bill narrating Oakley’s tale. “I have all the characters doing more of a caricature than being actual people,” Wawrzynek

said about how he approached the show, which he has never seen on stage. Wawrzynek put in a fair amount of research, reading the script, downloading the soundtrack, and looking at pictures of the real people to get a feel for who they were. He then let his actors take it and run with it. “They all look as much as the actual people did, but I’m allowing the actors to take their own spin on the characters in order to fit in with the circus, big top tent idea.” Due to space limitations, Winarski said the cast has been pared down, making the performance that much more intimate. Wawrzynek said one thing he enjoys about the show is the chemistry between Butler and Oakley. “It’s in any sort of setting,” he said. “When they’re singing their songs together, it’s just very compassionate, romantic. I’m a sap for that sort of stuff, so to see them hug and spin and sway together, I always just sort of die watching that, at how cute they are.” “And to have the entire cast in that opening number come out one by one, then fill up the tiny stage and do a kick line, it’s one of those chilling moments in the theater where you get goosebumps.” Winarski looks at the show as a take on the first celebrity. “The story of a woman in the late 1800s becoming such a driving force in the industry, in show business, it’s like she’s

really the first American celebrity, along with the other in the show. I think the entire idea of superstardom started in the era of the Wild West shows, traveling from town to town and the people becoming so familiar that they caused a sensation wherever they went. That turned into vaudeville, which developed into the Broadway stage, which turned into movies, and so on.” The soundtrack is a huge draw of the show. “It’s one of the most famous scores in musical theater history,” Winarski said. “You’ve got ‘There’s No Business like Show Business,’ ‘I Got Lost in his Arms,’ and ‘You Can’t Get a Man with a Gun.’ It’s familiar.” But, all in all, it comes down to Annie. “Sure, it’s a family show filled with catchy songs, but it’s really about her,” Wawrzynek noted. “It’s a cute story about a girl who is taken off her feet by the Wild West show and put in the spotlight. She’s famous just because she’s doing what she does best.”

“Annie Get Your Gun:” June 14-15, 21-22, 28-29, 8 p.m.; June 16, 23, 30, 3 p.m., Theatre at the Grove (5177 Nuangola Road, Nuangola). $20. For reservations, call 570.868.8212.

album reviews Sabbath pick up where they left off

They tried it back in 1999, but it took another decade and change to become a reality – even now, it’s technically still three-fourths of the original band. Regardless of how you feel about the studio reunion of the original Black Sabbath, the fact is, “13” is a crushingly heavy lesson in primordial heavy metal, and the guys sound like they’re still the glint in every current that hums, somewhere, whenever an amplifier’s knobs are fiendishly twisted far to the right. The first recording since 1978’s “Never Say Die” featuring Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler is a little bittersweet for some, as many fans would have preferred a complete lineup featuring original

drummer Bill Ward. Financial squabbles prevented that from happening, but Rage Against the Machine drummer Brad Wilk capably fills in on the album, wisely not trying to replicate Ward’s swing/jazz-inspired smashing, instead adding his own looseness to the groove-heavy material. The album is no lumbering dinosaur; lead track “End of the Beginning” is reminiscent of the takeoff in the band’s 1970 song “Black Sabbath,” with Iommi’s trademark riffs still bearing the tritone (see “devil’s tone”) benchmark of classic British metal. The single, “God Is Dead,” lets Butler’s 10-ton bass at once rumble like John Entwistle, yet speak in noodling tongues like Steve Har-

The acoustic “Zeitgeist” begins with Ozzy’s asylum-dwelling laughter, a telling precursor to the song’s touch-of-madness examination of life’s catechisms – the flanged vocal effect on Ozzy’s voice a la “Planet Caravan” hauntingly alludes to, “Lost in time, I wonder will my ship be found?” The band refocuses on riff ‘n’ roll with the chromatic duster “Live Forever,” sounding like a brass-balled champion steed galloping toward the finishing line; the band is simply a galvanized metal machine. Should this album be their swan song, it’ll be one heck of a parting shot. It’s often said of an album, “This ain’t your father’s heavy metal.” This, in fact, is your dad’s metal – coming back to steel-toe the youngsters’ Hot Topic-fed inclinations back into shape. -Mark Uricheck, Weekender Correspondent

something good was about to happen. After starting a small music project just 18 short months ago, the New Jersey indie rock band (which contains two members from Saylorsburg) have come a long way and solidified their place in the industry with the release of a four-track EP, “Dead Language.” First track, “Wanderlust,” has a hint of Angels and Airwaves and other new arena rock bands, capturing all of the common traits: pulsing drums, distant vocals, and effortlessly changing time signatures. The second song, “The Letdown,” may be the record’s standout track. It has a bouncing guitar-rock driven sound with a quick, yet quirky drumbeat that captures the listener. The title track displays their great songwriting chops. It shows that on some songs, the musicians know when to hold back, but when they do let it all out, they do not overplay or overpower the tune. “Dead Language” is a solid display of songwriting all around, and a great listen all the way through that truly lets the musicianship of the four members shine. It’s a tight, complete piece of music with spot-on vocals for the genre, and it will be exciting to see where it takes The Soviet next. -Matt Morgis, Weekender Correspondent

While it could sometimes feel like the Fiery Furnaces was trying too hard to make sure everyone knew how offbeat its music was, with the results ranging wildly from brilliantly eccentric to willfully frustrating, going solo has seemingly freed Eleanor Friedberger up to show just what a naturally talented songwriter she is. Yeah, some of that impression might simply be the product of Friedberger making music under her own name, but whereas her 2011 debut “Last Summer” seemed as if she was still unlearning some of her earlier habits, “Personal Record” feels like she’s coming into her own, more at ease with who she is – and can be – as an artist.

movie review ‘Internship’ filmmakers need to go back to comedy school By Pete Croatto

Weekender Correspondent

Rating: W W

“The Internship” stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn eagerly reworking the guys-guys banter as comedy routine that made “Wedding Crashers” a box-office hit in 2005. They need to try harder. Banter is a wonderful way to ace your Q&A with Letterman. It can serve as a nice complement to a drama. But you cannot make a comedy from just that. It’s a lesson directors have not yet grasped (Remember last year’s “The Watch”?) that audiences will have to endure at least one more time. Billy (Vaughn) and Nick (Wilson) are best friends whose back-slapping, friendly personalities make them excellent watch salesmen. But no one is buying watches. And nobody wants to deal with people

anymore, their fed-up boss (John Goodman) says. That means Billy and Nick are obsolete as well as unemployed. Some hope remains. While conducting the world’s most pathetic online job search, Billy secures he and Nick an interview for an internship at Google. After getting the gig comes the hard part: they have to compete against dozens of much younger and better skilled applicants for actual jobs at the company. The old dudes do belong to a team of tech-savvy college kids who abhor them – until the whippersnappers look up from their iPhones and embrace life. The “a whole world exists beyond your phone, kids” isn’t the most annoying aspect here. Neither is the, “Hey, old timers, your social skills never age,” reassurances. “The Internship” never aspires to be funny in an original way. Vaughn, writing with Jared Stern (“The Watch”), trots

out jokes and characters coated in an inch of dust. Rose Byrne, who stole scenes in “Bridesmaids,” plays an overworked Google executive who finds her soul only after sleeping with Nick. For reasons I’m not clear on, Aasif Mandvi fashions a ridiculous Indian accent as the internship’s supervisor. Still not bored or offended? How about a nerdy Asian kid (Tobit Raphael) who’s really a party animal and brown-nosing bad guy Max Minghella acting with his eyebrows? All that is sandwiched between Vaughn and Wilson’s shtick, which consists of talking a mile a minute while butchering Internet terms and tossing out pop culture references. There’s no slate of jokes as much as there is a tone of haughtiness: “Hey, audience, you’ve heard this all before, so just laugh at the cadence and the visual cues.” You should really start chuckling when Rob Riggle and Will Ferrell show up. “The Internship’s” dramatic elements keep it from receiving our full-blown contempt. The despair that drives two 40-something friends toward their last grasp at professional and personal fulfillment makes it engaging. The fears of the characters touched me: how the older you get, the more irrelevant you feel; the sympathy I have for recent college

Did the dream duo of Wilson and Vaughn do it again? It would seem not.

graduates entering a job market where they are guaranteed to be overworked and undervalued. Tom Hanks tried to go that route with his unemployment drama “Larry Crowne” only to prove that celebrities have no idea how to portray real people and their problems without insulting us. (In Hanks’ world, community college solves everything.) Two years later, “The Internship” demonstrates that Hollywood can’t make us laugh about our troubles for a couple of hours. I think that is the greater offense. - To read more of Pete’s cinematic musings, please visit whatpeteswatching.blogspot.com or follow him on Twitter, @PeteCroatto.

why (my brother) Robert and I got into movies. It’s part of the reason why Robert became an actor. The first person that looked into my eyes and told me, “Hey, quit Nine Inch Nails if you have to and do Filter because that song ‘Hey Man Nice Shot’ is amazing and I want to use it for a movie.” And his name was Joel Silver… I was like, “Word. Absolutely, OK. Done, sir!” It was someone that I really respected who went on to go be the producer for “Matrix” and all kinds of s—t. W: Has that had an affect on your songwriting? RP: I always think like movie soundtrack; I always think, “How would this fit in a movie?” Listen, I was a nerd. My favorite record probably to this day is the Vangelis soundtrack to “Blade Runner.” W: You’ve been involved in many other musical projects over the years. What makes you keep coming back to Filter and these songs? RP: This is my baby. It’s just so beautiful being the leader of a band; it’s so incredible. It’s so incredible just having this freedom. With Filter, if someone wants to leave or they want to go, that’s fine… As long as I can be the boss kind of thing with really super great, talented people, it just gets amazing. This record is completely divided – everything is divided between (guitarist) Johnny (Radtke) and I because he really is a gifted, talented musician. I listen to him all the time; he’s a really smart kid, and it’s nice to be able to collaborate. See, if I were in a traditional thing where we all signed a piece of paper that says we’re all stuck with each other, I’d be in a situation like my guys in STP (Stone Temple Pilots). “We want to play a show.” “Well, I’m watching the Lakers.” “OK, but there’s 1200 people in this arena and they want to go see the show. I know you had a lot to drink last night, so is it that, too?” The thing about the DeLeo brothers is they are consummate professionals. They’re really, really proud of their craft and their professionalism. Everything they set up is just a big huge question mark. When they go off with Chester (Bennington) from Linkin Park, I can’t blame them.

When listening to hard-hitting industrial rock hits “Hey Man Nice Shot,” “(Can’t You) Trip Like I Do,” and “Take a Picture,” it’s easy to see why Everclear frontman Art Alexakis asked Filter to be part of the Summerland Tour, which recalls the familiar sounds of ‘90s rock radio. Just before Filter’s first show of the tour in Ft. Myers, Fla., singer Richard Patrick spoke to The Weekender about that era, how a famous film producer kickstarted his career, and the inspiration for his latest album, “The Sun Comes Out Tonight.” The band will also appear for a meet and greet at the Gallery of Sound on June 16, hours before Summerland comes to Penn’s Peak. THE WEEKENDER: The Summerland tour has focused a lot on ‘90s nostalgia. Do you feel nostalgic for that time at all? RICHARD PATRICK: It was an amazing era for music. Anybody with a guitar was kind of on top. Now the Top 40 has changed quite a bit. But the reality is everything has its reign. The world’s big enough that you can have success in any different genre now because it’s not all dependent completely on radio. For us, we’ve got a record out right now that’s current…and we’re in the Top 20s right now, too. It’s kind of like whatever works. For us, it’s just having a good time playing with friends. If you think too much about the old days or the new days, you end up not paying attention to right now, the future. So right now I’m just enjoying a record with so many solid songs on it. I’ve never been more proud of a record. W: Is that your goal when you’re writing songs, to write those catchy hits? RP: When I wrote “Hey Man Nice Shot” originally, it was just purely like, “This is what I want to hear.” I want to hear a huge chorus, like the biggest chorus you could ever have. I didn’t know it at the time, but something hooky like “Hey Man Nice Shot,” that phrase, is extremely hooky. I wasn’t even

really looking for that. My favorite bands, like the Rolling Stones or U2 or even Pantera, they know what a chorus is… It’s just kind of listening to your instincts and writing songs that are f—king satisfying. I’m lucky that I grew up wanting the hit, …wanting to enjoy the big chorus and the big payoff. W: Do you find yourself inspired by the same things now as you did then? RP: I’m inspired by all the things I was inspired by when I wrote those. All of that, inherently, is still in my mind, and I just have new things to complain about. When I bitch, it’s because someone’s f—ked me. I got f—ked over. I know some scummy people, and one of them took a bite, so I have that I can talk about. “We Hate It When You Get What You Want” – it’s all about having people do whatever they want to you to take what they want out of you, and anyone can feel like that. You have to let people know that they’re not alone. I’ve heard people say, “I got into music because I wanted chicks and money and cars and blah blah blah – that’s never been my modus operandi. My thing is when I was growing up, I didn’t have success in school; I’m extremely ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). The only thing I liked was music – music and movies, and it was mainly music. So I would disappear with my little Walkman. I would disappear into that world of music and have that escape at the ready, and now I’ve got…people on Facebook who contact me or Myspace even back in the day who are like, “I heard you and got sober.” “I heard this song and it made me think of my dad who left me when I was three. He abandoned me in a hotel room when I was three and I want you to know that your song ‘Take a Picture’ really means something to me. It gives me hope.” And that right there is the greatest. That’s it. That’s what I got into music for. W: You mentioned your love of movies. Is that why you’ve had so many songs on movie soundtracks? RP: My mom and dad are movie fanatics – that’s part of the reason

Filter lights up Summerland


By Rich Howells Weekender Editor

In memory of the late “Macho Man” Randy Savage, New Visions Studio & Gallery started the annual Wrestle & Rock concert three years ago, allowing local bands to combine their love of music with classic wrestling in a fun and overthe-top away. This year, the musical “bout” pits brother against brother – Brian and Connor Langan of Langor and Crock Pot Abduction, respectively. In the style of those ridiculous WWE backstage interviews, The Weekender asked Langor “Slayer of Thoughts” and Connor “The Hulk” Langan how they plan to take home the championship belt, so we present to you their answers, tongue planted firmly in cheek. THE WEEKENDER: How does a band get to this point, reaching the Wrestle & Rock Championship? BRIAN LANGAN: Sheer power, sheer force, sheer glory, sheer valor, sheer Ops, sheer fierce, sheer truama, sheer drama, sheer scissors, sheer itemry, sheer intent, sheer willpower, sheer party, sheer leggings, sheer glitterdom, sheer knowledge – it is the “QUEST” in “Question” that fuels this vessel! CONNOR LANGAN: Well, it takes practice, the kind of practice that works a man to his bones, a moment in a band’s lifetime that takes years of hard work and songwriting. It takes dedication and the desire to become the next Wrestle & Rock Champion. W: What does this concert, and this match, mean to you personally? CL: Well, Rich, this match means everything to me. Not only is this match for the New Visions Title, it is my birthday. I will be turning 19, and there is no better way I could celebrate it than playing a show and challenging my brother. I take it as a step towards becoming an even bigger man. BL: I take nothing personally; it is the ego that slows the panther, the blade that stalls the steed. W: How do you plan to win this match? BL: I never plan victory; I become victory! CL: I plan to win this match

Wrestle & Rock III with Langor, Crock Pot Abduction, Rik Spandex, and The Faceless Shadows: June 15, 8 p.m., New Visions Studio & Gallery (201 Vine St., Scranton). $7, $5 if dressed as a wrestler. All-ages, BYOB for 21+.

with the help of my brothers joining me in Crock Pot Abduction that night. It’s going to be a five-piece wave of unstoppable power. Joining me will be “The Trash Man,” “Pjesus,” “Dingo Man,” and a special appearance by “Magic Mike.” If Langor wants to fight dirty, then he and his ragtag team of misfits will never win. W: You two are brothers. Why this grudge match? How did it come down to this? CL: Langor and I were always the best of brothers; I looked up to him more than anyone. All I wanted to do was play in a band just like him. It was no secret, however, that our feud is a fire that’s been burning stronger and stronger since I was born. I was always living in his shadow; I would never be as good as he was. My brother always knew that one day I’d be a threat to his Champion Title. BL: He claims to use the original Langan Island Texas Wiener Sauce recipe, when all of the Maker’s universe knows it is I that harbor the original recipe. That and he let my nephew lose my copy of “Beautiful Katamari” for Shreks-box 360. W: You both play in very popular bands. Which band is better and why? CL: Crock Pot Abduction is clearly the better band. Langor has been going downhill since 2011. Langor and his crew were on top of the world a few years ago, but they grew stale and it all came crashing down. They were too busy hotdogging to see their time was up. Crock Pot Abduction gets the crowd more involved; we let them have fun, and we break any wall that would come between us and the fans. We try to play shows at least once a month. When’s the last time Langor played a show? I can’t remember, Rich. Langor may think that he’s better just because he opened a show for The Darkness, but I promise you that CPA puts on a way better act than that wannabe Langor ever could. BL: Langor does not hide behind youth and a gate of guitars; we waltz directly into the fray, chalices held high. W: If you could tell your opponent one thing right now, what would you say? CL: If I could tell that coward one thing right now it’d be that he’s just a pinfall waiting to happen, that I’m going to make him

W: What would you like to say to your fans who will be supporting you at this event? BL: Chug hard, take it to the heap, and never look back. CL: To all of the musical maniacs coming out to this show, I’d like to say that this is going to be the best CPA show they’ve ever attended. The moves they’ll witness by all five of us will make their heads explode. I’d like to tell our fans to go crazier than they ever have at a CPA show. They are going to witness one of the most legendary lineups this side of the Milky Way. W: No matter how this match goes down, is there any hope for reconciliation and good sportsmanship in the end? BL: There is always room for peace in the hearts of men. Peace must be true, peace must be innocent, peace must be blind yet see all. Peace must find you at your darkest second. Peace friggin’ rules. CL: I always am respectful and full of good sportsmanship; I hope that Langor will be as well. No matter what, Rich, Langor and I will always be brothers. W: Is there anything else you’d like to add? BL: Yes, a side of chipotle barbeque sauce. CL: There’s only one thing I’d like to add, Rich. I hope everyone has a good time, and I hope to see all the musical maniacs out there dressed up in wrestling costumes supporting local music. So train, say your prayers, and eat your vitamins! Be true to yourself, true to your country – be a real American!

By Matt Morgis

Weekender Correspondent Coming up on the one year release of “Floral Green,” Title Fight has decided it’s time to hit the road once again in September, announcing a four-week tour earlier this week that kicks off in Baltimore and circles around the country. In addition to the 25 newly added performances, the band will be playing Friday, June 14 in Taylor at the Underwood Skatepark, along with a few other one-off gigs. The Weekender checked in with bassist and vocalist Ned Russin to see what the band has been up to since the release of the latest record. THE WEEKENDER: You’re coming up on the one year mark of “Floral Green.” How do you feel that album has done up until this point? NED RUSSIN: It really surpassed our expectations. We did a lot of stuff on this record that was different for us, and it was a great change of pace. At the same time, we didn’t know how people would react to it, so it was great when people came out with positive support; it was relaxing. We prepared for the worst, got the exact opposite, and I think it was worth all of the hard work. W: Will any new songs be played on this tour? NR: Probably not for a little bit. The thing we’re working on now is kind of secret, but we’ve always done it that way so people don’t have to wait too long after the announcement. But during the new tour we may throw a few in or maybe we’ll still be finishing it up. Who knows? W: How has it been releasing

an album with a record label, rather than in a DIY environment? NR: It was a different approach. Everything used to be on our schedule, and that was the biggest adjustment. I think it benefited us in the long run because we had to push ourselves to get the record done. At the time, it was hectic, but looking back, it made us do something a little different. I think we were very happy with the outcome. W: And how will you approach it the second time around? NR: Every time it’s a new experience, and it keeps us on our toes. It breaks up the routine, which makes it interesting and not boring. This time around, we’ll know how to try new things, which will help us grow even more as a band. W: You’ve done some cool tours with some music vets, Rise Against for one. What have you learned from bands like that? NR: You learn something different from everybody. They all have different stories and outcomes, but the most interesting thing is how everyone was shaped. Rise Against and us have similar backgrounds. They play in front of thousands of people but are still the same guys, and that’s what we want to be. Hearing all of these different things of how recording and touring has changed so much, it makes us want to learn and take away as much as we can from it. I just like that most of them have stayed true to what they believe in. A common misconception is that when a band gets big, people say they “sell out,” and there are bands that don’t abide by that at

Title Fight with Merchandise, Milk Music, and Destruction Unit: June 14, 5:30 p.m., Underwood Skatepark (432 N Main St., Taylor). $13.

Always more to love.

W

all. And to us, it’s nice to see it can be done because we always want to do the same thing. W: Anything new with Redwood Art Space, the venue the band once owned? NR: Still working on a new location. We learned a lot in the year that we were open, but we’re going to up and running soon. We’re going to be around for the long haul this time. There’s just some minor road blocks right now. W: What has been the most memorable moment since releasing the record? NR: The record release show at Warrior Run. We built the stage, we booked the show; it was a lot of work that paid off and made it worth it. It was all of our friends from across the country, and we were able to play with them at home. That was everything that we wanted the record to be, and it is my favorite show we’ve ever played. That was the vision when we started the band, and (that’s) what happened. W: You guys are never shy to play in NEPA. Is there anything exciting about Friday’s show? NR: We’re really excited to play Taylor. It’s going to be a really cool show, and I’d recommend getting there early and checking out all of the opening bands. Even if it doesn’t seem like we’re doing something, we normally are, and it will be worth checking out.

‘The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls’ by Anton DiSclafani Rating: W W W W

believe. The camp becomes a device to further anti-feminist ideals, often promoting young girls’ purity and refinement for the sake of male approval. Fortunately, Thea finds refuge in the horses, who serve as strength and escape in a life where her own choices are critically silenced. As a coming-of-age novel, DiSclafani offers both poignant and gripping sentiments throughout. The work is written in such a way that readers mature with Thea as she faces adversity, growing from a once selfish socialite to a compassionate and determined young woman. While the work contains often delicate and controversial themes, DiSclafani manages to develop them as a mode of fortitude rather than exploit them purely for shock value. Thea may be a complicated protagonist from beginning to end, but the conclusion of the work demonstrates that growth is about becoming fearless.

George Eliot once said: “The strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice.” In Anton DiSclafani’s debut novel, “The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls,” readers meet a character who, in making such a choice, alters her life forever. The novel opens in the early 1930s, at the onset of the Great Depression. Readers follow teenage protagonist, Thea Atwell, who is raised on a prominent citrus farm in Florida. Thea, a debutante, grows up alongside her twin brother, Sam, and cousin, Georgie, who serve as her only source of solace. Unfortunately, the often misunderstood Thea is soon removed from her familial home after a grave, yet mysterious, transgression. Before it is too late, she realizes that she has been indefinitely sequestered to Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls, a boarding school in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. “I wondered, in that dimly lit cabin that smelled so strongly of wood, what had brought each girl there. Or who had brought them. […] I took my father’s hand, which hung by his side, and hoped the other girls would not think me childish. His grip surprised me, and then I knew it was true, he meant to leave me here.” As Thea feels her freedom quickly slipping away, she makes the decision to persevere, no matter the cost. The camp, which publicizes its renowned female education and horseback riding, harbors many secrets within. Readers come to understand that Thea, as well as the supporting characters, bear a traumatizing past that brought them there. While the harsh reality of poverty exists outside the site, the young women remain naive to the world, lulled by the extravagance of what they are taught to see and

Beer, bands, and trains

By Sara Pokorny

Weekender Staff Writer

When it comes to Northeast Pennsylvania, some may ask, “Why?” Others, like Jon Henderson, simply ask, “Why not?” The producer at Goodtime Tricycle, an Atlantic City-based company that puts on largescale lifestyle events, used those exact words when asked why the area was chosen to play host to the Steamtown Beer and Music Festival at Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain on Saturday, June 15, the first festival of its kind in the area. “We know Scranton has some partiers,” said Henderson, who grew up in Lake Wallenpaupack. “I think we nailed it. When we were at the Dave Matthews Band show doing promotions, I saw three people who had nothing to do with one another wearing our t-shirts from the Atlantic City festival, and I thought, ‘This really might be the perfect place for something like this.’” The Steamtown Beer and Music Festival is certainly a large undertaking, an event that will have 50 breweries serving over 200 beers; live music from Fuel, The Menzingers, Muscle Shoal Revival, The Sunset Villains, Gabriel the Marine, and Banquets; games;

and several other activities, but it was simply a matter of transferring the idea from one place to another for Goodtime. The company is responsible for putting on such events as the Average Joe Expo, Atlantic City Sea Food Festival, and the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival, which ran for the 8th year in 2013. Approximately 22,000 people came to the festival, making it the secondlargest event of its kind in the country. “We’re taking all the moving parts and what we created in Atlantic City and bringing it to Scranton, but outdoors,” Henderson explained. “It’s an opportunity for the discovery and celebration of beers and the people who created them.” Henderson said the planning of the event was a lot easier than he thought, thanks in large part to sponsors like Live Nation, Mohegan Sun, 98.5 KRZ, and The Weekender stepping up and helping to execute it. “A lot of people are excited about new happenings in Northeast Pennsylvania,” Henderson said. “We talked with a handful of people and knew there were a couple beer events in the region and, while those are good events, it’s nothing like we do. We do an outdoor festival, an opportunity for discovery, set it to a cool soundtrack, and create a multi-

layered festival experience that’s more than walking around from table to table and drinking beer.” During the day, there will be games, ice sculptures on display, cooking demonstrations that showcase how to grill with beer by John Koza, executive chef of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, and Grill Sergeant Brad Turner, who was an executive chef in the U.S. Army for years. The festival will also provide moustache rides to all those in attendance. Sound dirty? Not as much as you think, and if you’re really itching to know, stop by The Weekender’s area on Saturday and receive a free ride of your own. Should all go well, will we see another festival in the future? It’s not even a question. “We built this; it’s not one and done,” Henderson insisted. “We’re looking to do the same thing in Scranton that we did in Atlantic City – Steamtown Beer and Music Festival ‘14, ‘15, ‘16 and so on.”

Steamtown Beer and Music Festival: June 15, Session 1 12 p.m.-4 p.m.; Session 2 6 p.m.-10 p.m.; Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain (1000 Montage Mountain Rd., Scranton). $50-$55 per session; $89 VIP per session, $15 designated driver ticket.

Don’t tell me when and what I can drink,” proudly states Dave Oakley during a discussion about beers having distinct seasonal release dates. This sentiment is one spoken from a true home brewer who has a passion for brewing the kind of beer he wants to drink. This same passion is true of the four friends who make up 3 Guys & A Beer’d Brewing Co., located in Carbondale. Oakley, Matt Zuk, Jon Bronson, and Johnny “The Beard” Waering founded the company after years of brewing beers together for themselves, continuing their desire to make great beer that not only they love, but their customers love as well. The business has been growing strong since 2011, and the demand is extremely high for their beers. “We have trouble keeping up with demand sometimes,” Zuk said. Now this may be frustrating for some customers and to the owners as well, but in this current economic state, it is a good problem to have, and that problem is certainly earned. The guys have put out some really wonderful beers, whether it’s their Soul Patch Pumpkin Ale (a personal favorite of mine), the very popular Wheat the People (an American-styled Hefeweizen), or the new and extremely popular Loyalty Barber Shop Shaving Cream Ale, creating a huge demand for their products. There is good news, though – they are expanding very soon. They have purchased larger equipment that will enable

them to brew more beer, and it should be in full use by year’s end. They have truly grown in a grassroots, DIY fashion to get to this point. In fact, while Oakley was showing me the new bottling machine they acquired, he noted that up until now, every bottle was done by hand. “We calculated that we did about 10,000 bottles by hand up to this point,” he said. “Not an easy thing to do.” But they are certainly doing it right because I haven’t had a bad bottle yet! The majority of their beers are draft only, but they are adding new brews to bottles as they continue to expand. Currently, they only offer Wheat the People, Ladder Dive Rye IPA, and Carbond’Alien (American Pale Ale) in bottles on a regular basis, though they have plans to add Loyalty Barber Shop Shaving Cream Ale to bottles in the near future. If you have not had anything from 3 Guys & A Beer’d yet, then do yourself a favor and try one, or even three! They are widely available throughout the area, so call around to your favorite taverns, and if they don’t carry it, tell them to get some. Additionally, the guys will be at the inaugural Steamtown Beer and Music Festival, pouring many great offerings like Wheat the People, Ladder Dive Rye IPA, Carbond’Alien, and Malarkey Irish Style Red Ale, so if you really needed another reason to go to the festival, you have one now!

around eating and drinking. Brett Gurewitz just told us all kinds of stories about all the bands that we loved; it was so interesting. It was awesome,” he enthused. A lot has changed for The Menzingers in just a few short years, but what didn’t change for them matters much more. “The idea that as a band we’re friends first and a band second, and that a lot of the people that you meet within the industry that you work with, that you tour with or that work for you or you work for – it feels like everybody is friends first. It’s all about having the same sort of ideals and morals and approach to the industry, and then second comes all the business parts. That’s really reaffirming,” May emphasized. This environment has allowed them to stay sharp creatively as well, taking a few months off recently to write new songs to record by year’s end. “I can definitely say it’s heavier than anything we’ve done so far. That’s not screaming or anything like that – it’s a lot more riff-driven and a lot heavier, a lot bigger guitars and things like that,” he said of the upcoming album, which is already “pretty far along.” The group hasn’t played in the area since a sold-out benefit in December, and while many of the local venues they used to frequent have since shuttered their doors, the Steamtown Beer

“IT’S LIKE A KID WHO PLAYS BASEBALL AT LACKAWANNA LITTLE LEAGUE AND THEN BECOMES PART OF THE PHILLIES. IT’S KIND OF RIDICULOUS.” and Music Festival has granted them their first opportunity to play the much larger stage of the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain. It’s the people, not the place, that matters most, however. “We really have no idea what to expect, but we are expecting to have a really good time, and a bunch of our family members are going to come out, and they usually don’t come to the small, very packed places,” May said. “(I’m most looking forward to) the people I’m going to see there, for sure, and the fact that we’re playing at a place that we grew up going to concerts at. That’s really exciting. There’re some people that I haven’t seen in a long time who have contacted me and said that they’re coming, so I’m so excited to see them.”

– we’re a bunch of kids from the Northeast in a place that used to make stuff, and now that things are changed, they don’t really make anything there anymore. It’s just an interesting American experience.” This identity, perhaps, is what makes their music so relatable to the youth across the country – and the world – who have embraced The Menzingers, landing them a deal with Epitaph Records, one of the largest and most well-known independent punk labels, in 2011. “That was the label that had all the bands that we listened to growing up, so it was a strange kind of full circle thing. You spend years and years and years of just daydreaming about that and then it ends up working out,” May noted. “It’s like a kid who plays baseball at Lackawanna Little League and then becomes part of the Phillies. It’s kind of ridiculous.” And they were welcomed with open arms by owner/ founder Brett Gurewitz, who is also a guitarist and songwriter for the legendary Bad Religion. “Instead of taking us out for whatever or trying to wine and dine us or something, they just closed off the parking lot… and set up barbeque and some beers and stuff like that, and everybody who worked at Epitaph Records just took a two-hour break and we just sat

hen The Menzingers were asked if they’d like to play the Steamtown Beer & Music Festival, guitarist/vocalist Tom May felt the answer was obvious. “We love beer and Scranton, so hell yeah!” While the four punk rockers moved to Philadelphia over five years ago to better network with fellow bands, it was the Northeast Pennsylvania music scene that encouraged them to originally take the plunge. “The idea of being in a band wasn’t some kind of unattainable thing. It was everybody that grew up in the same town as us – everybody booked their own shows and everybody did everything themselves, so that definitely was an inspiration and got us going for it,” May described in a phone interview from Atlanta, Ga., before a headlining gig. “We grew up in Scranton, so it’s where we’ll always really call home, and that’s where… our friends and family are. That’s where we go to visit on holidays and things like that. It’s fantastic.” Formerly of local ska group Bob and the Sagets, May admits they weren’t always so fond of Scranton, often hoping to escape the hometown

that served as inspiration for their honest, heartfelt music. Their latest record, “On the Impossible Past,” contains a song called “Sun Hotel,” named for the South Scranton bar and flophouse closed down two years ago after a major drug bust. “I rented a practice space and had a screen printing shop next door there, underneath the Dominican grocery store that was there. We were all 19 or 20, so basically we would just go there and get wasted and screw around and practice and print t-shirts. The Sun Hotel would serve us underage,” he recalled. “It was totally shady. I got jumped outside of there one time at the gas station. It was an interesting experience down there.” It was one of many sights familiar to local fans. “The record before that, ‘Chamberlain Waits,’ was because we’d come out the back of the screen printing place, of the practice space that we had, and we’d be standing right next to the river and all you could see was the giant arms manufacturer right behind us,” he continued. While he found this area of downtown to be “a weird place,” he wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything. “From what I understand, it’s changing a bit. It has a lot of economic problems recently, especially with the city being so broke, but that’s just who we are

and Europe. I got to actually go to Père Lachaise Cemetery and go to Jim Morrison’s grave on Jim’s death day with Ray and Robby. And then we did a show that night in Paris; it’s one of those days that’s hard to forget, for sure,” he recalled. “One thing about The Doors’ catalog is anything can happen; there’s jam sections and you’re just waiting for the right time to come in, basically, and that time can be at any point… Within that, you’re basically conducting the show so the crowd knows where to go.” It proved to be a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity, as Manzarek passed away last month at the age of 74. Scallions received the news via text from a friend during a rehearsal. “My heart stopped. I threw my guitar down and I called Robby immediately,” he said. “Robby and I talked on the phone for a while. We had a few laughs and we talked about Ray and swapped some stories and basically kind of hugged each other over the phone.” He rejoined Fuel in 2010 with a new lineup and newfound

creative energy, recording 17 new songs for an album he hopes to release later this year. “There’s definitely some stuff on the new record that I feel like can be staple, old school Fuel, but then I’ve really gone back to the roots of what I grew up listening to, between Elvis and Led Zeppelin and The Beatles and The Cult and stuff like that. That’s all rock ‘n’ roll that was based off of blues and jazz and gospel,” he pointed out. “I take it song by song. I don’t try to make it lyrically flow into each other; one song can be about some type of political thing, and the next song can be about love gone wrong, and another song can be about life lessons.”The more “blues-based” tunes with a “jazz influence” even contain a guest appearance by Krieger on one track, and Riders on the Storm may have influenced Fuel’s live direction. “They just pulled every bit of that passion out of me and let me feel what it was like to be on a stage with guys that were just jamming and could really play. Every night was a different freefor-all. That was such a solid

feeling of freedom to be able to just go up and not know what’s going to happen next, and I loved that,” Scallions described. “(Fuel is) always looking for a way to extend things and jam and listen to each other and just play and break up the monotony of the same show every night.” Scrantonians can judge for themselves when the hard rocker return to NEPA, performing a mix of old and new songs meant to take fans on a “fun rollercoaster ride.” “When you see things on the schedule, your ears perk up and you go, ‘Oh cool, that’s going to be a fun one, and that’s one of the shows that I know is going to be a good time,’” Scallions said of the Steamtown Beer and Music Fest. “PA has always been ground zero for this band, so I always know that when we go back into that area that it’s going to be a fun time. “Seeing old friends, having a good time – that’s what it’s all about.”

uel are well-known across the country for chart-topping hits like “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” “Bad Day,” and “Shimmer,” but many locals may not be aware that the band got its start not far from Northeast Pennsylvania, even recording in the area in 1997. Born in Tennessee, singer Brett Scallions first discovered music while growing up in a church. “The cool thing about learning and singing in church and also in choirs is I learned a lot about harmony and how to sing with other people and stuff like that,” Scallions told The Weekender in a phone interview from Rochester, N.Y., while on tour. “I grew up in Tennessee, so Elvis was right down the street, so I used to listen to Elvis records and get up on the hearth – that was my stage – and I’d sing and dance and act like Elvis. As I grew older – I was about 13, I think – my brother came home from college and he brought an acoustic guitar home with him that he had borrowed from a friend. He taught me a chord – he taught me a G chord, I think – and I just sat there and played that G chord over and over again. “It just kind of snowballed from there; I was hooked. Eventually I ended up getting my own guitar and kind of selftaught myself.” While he now calls Los Angeles home, Scallions and the other members of the band that would become Fuel relocated to the more affordable Harrisburg in the early days, recording their second EP at C&C Recording Studio in Hazleton and naming the four-song album after the city. “I haven’t been in that area in quite a while, you know, but I remember making those recordings and stuff there. It was an interesting thing. It was pretty cool because that’s such a blue-collar area, and the people

were so down-to-earth and just really good-hearted. It was a nice experience for us to go there and relax and just focus on the music,” Scallions said of the recording. After their debut full-length, “Sunburn,” was released the following year, Fuel steadily took off, eventually receiving million-dollar record deals and worldwide tours with Silverchair, Aerosmith, Kid Rock, and many other popular acts, but Scallions wasn’t happy with his musical direction at the time and decided to leave the band and play with The X’s and Circus Diablo and form new projects like World Fire Brigade. Fuel continued on with a new lead singer, releasing “Angels & Devils” in 2007. Sharing the same manager as keyboardist Ray Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger of The Doors, Scallions was invited to jam with the living legends and became the singer for their group Riders on the Storm from 2007 through 2010, completely restoring his passion for performing. “Those guys showed me all of South America and Mexico

“PA HAS ALWAYS BEEN GROUND ZERO FOR THIS BAND, SO I ALWAYS KNOW THAT WHEN WE GO BACK INTO THAT AREA THAT IT’S GOING TO BE A FUN TIME.

ralphie aversa | Special to the Weekender

T.I.’s take: the industry, Lil Wayne The times are certainly changing, and if anyone in music has experienced that, it is rapper T.I. He has sold almost 7 million albums and 15 million singles in the U.S. alone. Yet the Atlanta-native currently finds himself without a record label and on a tour with Lil Wayne, a show that is selling tickets in some markets for as low as $10. For the show’s July 21 stop at Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain, 97 BHT teamed up with Live Nation to offer lawn seats as low as $9.70, and three-packs of 200 level tickets for $97. “This is what we call a paradigm shift in society right now,” T.I. explained over the phone in an interview with “The Ralphie Show.” “This is a generational shift where new people are coming in to power and there’s a new day and age, a new way of doing things.” The “Whatever You Like” artist notes that anyone in business has to adapt to a changing climate. “I’m in a very unique position where I have artists, including myself, I have producers, I have writers under my wing,” he said. “For me to go to any distributor and walk in any building and give them instant market share and give them instant credibility, instant relevance, and also an already-made superstar, that’s going to take a considerable investment.” With the feasibility in this day and age of recording and releasing music independently, especially under an already-known name, there’s no reason to believe that T.I. is simply showing a poker face. He told me he’d like to

release “Trouble Man II: He Who Wears the Crown” by this December. If there’s no deal in place with a record label, the rapper insists that he’ll release it without a major label. Coincidentally enough, the first single, “Wit Me,” features his summer tour mate. “Wayne was in Atlanta, man, and he hit me,” T.I. recalled. “I think he might have hit me about 5 in the morning, say he was on his way to the studio. So I was just up watching TV at the house and I was like, ‘Hell man, I’m not going to let him out-work me, I’m going to the studio too!’” The two superstars listened to tracks from T.I.’s Hustle Gang inhouse producers. A beat produced by Cordale “Lil C” Quinn stood out from the rest, and shortly after hearing it both Weezy and T.I. started cutting verses. “We didn’t get out of there that morning… might have been about 9:30 in the morning,“ he said, “and (Wayne) was still working!” T.I. says that Lil Wayne is “doing good” following reports that speculated various conditions of his health. “He’s in awesome spirits,” T.I. said. “One thing I can say, it has nothing to do with drugs, because I’ve been around him several times, shooting the video and on personal time and I haven’t seen him around or doing anything anywhere related to any kind of narcotics. I can attest to that.”

While I reserve my own poorly-made costumes for Halloween only, I always look forward to seeing what crazy get-ups fans will walk the floor in. These aren’t necessarily the best costumes at the con, but they were my personal favorites that I spotted and managed to photograph.

w

8. Mini-Darth Vader: After showing these Storm Troopers who was boss, this kid struck fear into some rebel scum by posing with his posse.

10. Zombie bunny: As if those old Easter Bunny costumes couldn’t get any creepier, this guy finds a way, adding a zombie baby in a basket for good measure.

7. Kitty Pryde and Gambit: This couple had every accessory down pat, including Kitty’s pet dragon Lockheed.

9. Female Colossus: I enjoy when people put their own spin on a character, and this woman looks like a Rasputin to me.

6. Tardis: This life-size police box did an excellent job portraying the odd time-traveling device often utilized by Time Lords. 2. Dr. Strange: Not only did this guy conjure a pitch-perfect Sorcerer Supreme costume, he also bears a striking resemblance to Robert Downey Jr., who probably would have made a great Stephen Strange if he wasn’t already portraying Iron Man. 3. Skeletor: Philadelphia’s own Skeletor not only hosts a Karaoke Gong Show regularly at the Trocadero Theatre, he also sports a pretty badass costume.

5. Blade: This guy really sank his fangs into… OK, I won’t go there, but man, he nailed Wesley Snipes’ vampire hunter. 4. Ming the Merciless: The grand attention to detail juxtaposed with the cheesy bald cap really works in favor of the overall look here. 1. Captain America dog: This furry little girl wins the day for not only being the best-dressed Cap at the con, but for also being the most well-trained and loyal service dog I’ve ever seen. She dressed up as Black Widow, complete with little red wig, the following day.

‘Joyland’ By Stephen King Rating: w w w

who blurs her fake Romanian accent with her true New Yorker, and a dying, gifted young boy and his protective mother who help Jones see past his young life’s troubles and into something much deeper. As always, King brings the creeps, but not in the way you might expect. There’s no blood, no gore – there’s barely a ghost. King doesn’t go full-tilt on the supernatural side of things (though there is one creepy scene that may make you think twice when glancing at a ride’s moving car), but the reality of the situation at hand is enough to put a solid scare into readers, maybe even more so than any ghoul could. As always, King puts a sense of foreboding in place, urging readers on page after page in hopes of finally uncovering the evil that lurks beneath a place built on happiness. They eventually get there, though the climb can be a little rough at times. It’s a nostalgic tale that seems more of an overblown short story, though the excess of words has been put to paper beautifully. King has certainly rolled back into his stride, and “Joyland” is solid proof of that.

Amusement parks are a summer staple, those destinations that can’t help but bring out happiness in all who walk through the gates. And while that can be said for the main setting in Stephen King’s newest novel, “Joyland,” that particular park holds no joy for lead character Devin Jones, a 21-year-old on the precipice of heartbreak. Set in 1973 and narrated by the now 61-year-old Jones, “Joyland” follows the young adult through that fateful summer, where heartbreak was not the only thing lurking on the edges of his mind. It’s hard to even categorize this one, which has been published for the Hard Case Crime series: it’s a ghost story, it’s a mystery – it’s a tale of crossing the line into adulthood. It’s also the perfect summer read (available only in paperback, to preserve that nostalgic feel), giving insight into the inner workings of carnival life. Though King admits that he made some things up about the way an amusement park like Joyland operates, he also did his research to bring about an authentic feel to the job. Try pushing away the thought that you might like to run off and operate a Ferris wheel or two of your own – you can’t. But in this land of joy (where you will hear time and again that they “sell fun”) lurks a great shadow in the form of the Horror House, the park’s only dark ride where a young girl was murdered years before and where people now claim to see her saddened spirit. The killer has never been found, and Jones finds himself drawn to the mystery. On his way, he meets a bevy of well-developed characters with all the signature nuances King has come to be known for: a Ferris wheel operator with a distinct pitch for his ride that filters into everyday conversation, a carny gypsy

sorry mom & dad

102.3-FM The Mountain Every Sunday from 8-9 p.m.

The art of success People who complain that today’s generation is lazy, entitled, or lacking patience, seem to forget who raised us. The truth of the matter is that today’s Millennial generation strives for #SUCCESS more than any others before them. We want to be successful. We want to work our asses off to get to the top. But “How?” is the big question. When it comes to answering it, we’re lost. The reason we strive to be on reality television, or overnight YouTube sensations, is not because we are not willing to put the work in to earn success. It’s because the generation that raised us did not properly prepare us for an economical downfall that would leave us even more screwed than Jodi Arias’ defense attorneys. Sorry, Mom and Dad, it’s true. In all reality, the reason we seek the quick payoff, is because we are resourceful, realizing that now more than ever, patience, well, AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FO DAT! That’s the situation I found myself in at the beginning of this year when I was unemployed and desperate for options. I sent a video of myself lipsyncing “Call Me Maybe” on top of a bar in Connecticut to the casting department at “Big Brother.” I figured that if I could survive living in a house with my mom at the peak of her menopause, I could survive living with reality show rejects for a chance at winning $500,000. Three months later, I received a phone call. “Congratulations! You’re a semi-finalist for the new season

of ‘Big Brother,’” I heard on the other end. I just knew that this was my chance to get my parents off my back for having to pay my student loans, FINALLY move out of my house, and make a sex tape with Farrah from “Teen Mom!” A few days later I found myself at a top secret location for an on-camera interview. “You were born to get cast on any reality show you ever tried out for,” I was told. “You’d be perfect for this show! However, you were on ‘I Survived A Japanese Game Show’ and we might get crap for that.” “Say what?” I questioned. “I’ll fight for you to producers, and email you personally either way, because I’d like to see you on the show”. A few weeks later, I opened an email that explained that, after discussing it in a meeting, producers decided they couldn’t move forward with me because of my prior experience. I was unemployed, living with my parents, student loans facing default, and I was too famous for “Big Brother?” Shortly after, I answered a phone call from an entertainment manager that heard about me, loved one of my YouTube videos, and wanted to meet with me! Maybe it’s not patience that older generations should preach on us. Maybe it’s perseverance. Instead, be impatient, do whatever it takes, and be yourself - just always persevere, because something great could be waiting around the corner…

Over last summer, I was dating a handsome Italian restaurant owner. He was exotic, charming, and classy. He would look deeply into my eyes and say things in Italian that would just make me melt. Granted, I spoke no Italian, so for all I know he was saying that I had food stuck in my teeth or I was having a fat day, but in my mind he was showering me in sweet nothings. Life was like an “I can’t believe it’s not butter” commercial and he was my Fabio. We had gone on a few dates before deciding to spend a whole day together at a local wine festival. After a few too many samples, I found myself dancing barefooted to the band and wearing a tiara made of flowers. He just laughed at my carefree, childish antics and said I was endearing. I don’t know what ingredients the final wine maker was using, but the last tasting gave me an uncontrollable case of the giggles. On the car ride home, I just thought everything was funny. I cracked myself up so many times that I am certain I should have (and possibly might have) peed my pants. Upon arrival at my apartment, we decided to watch a movie and crack open another bottle of wine; we had bought so many different bottles at the festival that I told him to just grab any one so we could start the movie. He had mistakenly grabbed the bottle from the last sampling, the bottle of instant giggles. Needless to say, we couldn’t

make it through the movie without things quickly escalating. We had never hooked up before and after dating for a few weeks and drinking a healthy amount of wine all day long, it was time. I still had the giggles, but tried my best to keep my serious bedroom face demeanor. The funny thing about wine is that different people could be drinking the same thing and have completely opposite reactions. For me, it was the giggles. For him, it was lack of stamina. I didn’t realize things had even started when he alerted me to the fact they were already over. Under the influence of the giggle juice, I accidentally burst out in an uncontrollable fit of laughter and yelled “That was it?!” I then proceeded to laugh in his face to the point that tears were streaming down my face. I knew it was wrong, but literally couldn’t stop it. The harder I tried to compose myself, the more I laughed. His ego was bruised and my continuous cackling didn’t help. He quickly gathered his things and ran out the door embarrassed. I continued to laugh. I never saw him again after this incident. I know now to avoid the giggle wine before and during adult time and that perhaps some drinks are better suited for girls’ night out, not couple’s night in.

securely Fashioned Yes, no, and where to go

erin rovin | Weekender Correspondent

Buy, barter, and bid! Auctions, estate sales, and flea markets are fantastic places to shop for one-of-a-kind pieces like vintage costume jewelry or even designer bags and scarves. You can also score some very unique items that you won’t find in a store, like classic white gloves and old-fashioned handbags made from interesting materials like Lucite or handbeaded with intricate designs. And you can always spot some gorgeous jewelry with a history all its own. Lots of places, especially in our area, uncover vintage items that were made with impeccable detail, before everything was mass-produced. To shed some light on the auction world, I interviewed auctioneer extraordinaire J. Bear Savo of Savo Auctioneers in Archbald. THE WEEKENDER: What’s trending these days? JBS: There are many popular vintage fashion items being offered at auction these days: vintage hats, handbags, etc. However, the most popular items continue to be jewelry (whether fine or costume), and the most sought-after jewelry are pieces from the Victorian Era or the Art Deco period. W: What item went for the most money? JBS: In recent months, we sold a vintage 14K yellow and rose gold cigarette case with ruby encrusted initials for $2,750. W: What items are underappreciated at auction? JBS: There really are no “underappreciated” items at auctions. Merchandise is either marketable or not. The level of marketability may depend on rarity, condition, or even current trends in vintage/ antique items. W: Where do you get your lots from? JBS: The majority of the merchandise in our auctions comes from private estates. W: What was the most unusual piece you’ve sold? JBS: The most unusual piece of jewelry that we recently sold was a Victorian watch fob made of human hair ($110). Indeed, making hairwork items was a popular craft in the late 1800s. W: Eww. Oldest items? JBS: The oldest fashion items we find in estates come from the

late Victorian Era, 1870s through 1890s. W: Most common items? JBS: The most common vintage fashion items found in estates are vintage ladies’ hats from the 1930s through the 1950s. (Men’s hats are harder to find and usually bring a premium.) Almost every estate has a stash of handbags. Many are unmarketable, but those from the early to mid-20th century that are high fashion (metal mesh, flapper style, Lucite) can do well at auction. The bulk of costume jewelry found in estates is from the 1950s60s. Most of it is marketable, but in group lots. The Victorian and Art Deco jewelry that is so popular right now is much harder to find and therefore commands higher prices. W: What sets Savo Auctioneers apart from other auction houses? JBS: We do not purchase items from estates or individuals. We sell strictly on a commission basis, exposing our consignors’ merchandise to a nationwide level of competitive bidding. For our buyers, we provide a user-friendly atmosphere through our clear presentation, organization, and efficiency. At Savo Auctioneers, we believe the auction industry is about excellence in service, and our dedication to this philosophy is what has made us Northeast PA’s leading auction and appraisal company.

Feels like old times during Patch Town Days By Christopher J. Hughes

From The Times Leader

While the need for a mining village hasn’t existed in Northeastern Pennsylvania for many years, the memories of the lives lived in the so-called patch towns linger for many residents. “You can see on our Facebook page, we often have people sending in pictures of their grandparents that lived here and sharing with us their reminiscence of coming down here on Sunday afternoons for dinner,” said Bode Morin, site administrator of the Eckley Miners Village in Weatherly. “It’s a real good connection to the generations that have passed.” That connection will be restored yet again this weekend as the restored and interpreted coalmining village hosts its annual Patch Town Days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. “Patch Town Days is just a celebration of the way miners used to live here,” Morin explained. “There’s music, there’s crafts, and there’s food that kind of relates to the history of coal mining in this area.” The village opens its doors to the homes of historic interpreters and any number of demonstrations on how life was lived during the height of the coal mining era. “We’ve got three miners’ houses that have been complete-

ly restored to the time period that we’re interpreting them in,” Morin said. A slate picker’s house, home to one of the lowest-level workers in the colliery, is tied to the 1860s. Two miners’ homes are interpreted to the 1880s and 1940s, respectively. “We talk about the progression of life almost over a century in the patch towns,” Morin said. “We demonstrate the changing lifestyles, values, and accoutrements of life for the people here.” The event is managed by the Eckley Miners Village Associates, the nonprofit, volunteer, and fundraising organization that helps support the site. Morin said approximately 40 volunteers will be present this weekend. The village has 10 rentable units that Morin said fit perfectly with its historic intent. “It’s our tradition. This village was built to house people from the region, and houses have continually been rented here since 1854,” he said. “That’s an important part of our historic preservation.” A special exhibit of the outsider art of the late Frank

Patch Town Days: June 15-16, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Eckley Miners Village (2 Eckley Main St., Weatherly). $10, adults; $9, senior citizens, ages 65 and older; $6, children ages 6-12. Info: 570.636.2070, eckleyminersvillagemuseum.com.

Wyso also opens this weekend. Wyso left behind 5,000 works upon his passing in 1994, and Wyso Foundation director and curator Steve Lichak will present programs on the artist each day this weekend. This weekend, an entertainment tent also will house regional music performances, and costumed historic interpreters will engage visitors throughout the village. “It’s a celebration of the people that lived here and made this place what it is,” Morin said. For more information, call 570.636.2070, visit eckleyminersvillagemuseum.com, or find the village’s page on Facebook.

Vets and their Vettes

FACEBOOK.COM/LUZERNECOUNTYPAINTBALL

SEEKING TATTOO ARTISTS AND PIERCERS

Corvette owners celebrated their passion for their cars at “Vettes for Vets” on June 9, sponsored by the West Pittston American Legion, Post 542, 1st Lt. Jeffrey DePrimo while raising money for veteran and youth programs. More than 40 different “Vettes” were proudly displayed as a way for their owners to share their love for these cars with others who have the same interest and to benefit the local veterans organization. About 200 visitors participated in raffles, enjoyed outdoor grilled food, and eyed up a line of brightly colored Corvettes, with shiny wheels, lowslung profiles, and some with 427-cubic-inch engines putting out more than 500 horsepower. Some were convertibles, some older models, and some right from the showroom floor. How much do fanciers of the iconic Chevrolet sports car love their cars? “Driving one is the most fun you can have with your clothes on,” said John Reese of Wilkes-Barre. Reese raced his supercharged Corvette at the Pocono Raceway, Watkins Glen, and Virginia International Speedway and has topped 165 mph. He has been a Corvette enthusiast for about 15 years and is a regular attendee at the Vettes for Vets event. Organizer Ron Gitkos, owner of West Side Auto in

West Pittston, where the event was held, and commander of the legion post, said Vettes for Vets is the legion post’s largest fundraiser of the year. The money raised benefits veteran and youth programs in West Pittston and Exeter and helps pay for the Memorial Day parade, Gitkos said. It is also a way to share camaraderie within the community, he said. Gitkos echoed Reese’s comments about the love Corvette drivers hold for their rides. “It’s the way they handle,” he said. “Give me a windy road any day.” He thanked the borough and the other local businesses that help the event go on each year. For the last two years, Barry Hosier, owner of nearby BQ3 Smokehouse, donated, cooked and served the food for the day. Hosier estimated that more than 200 visitors enjoyed his barbecue specialties made with his own personal seasoning recipes. He said he wanted to help Gitkos and the American Legion while offering a good time to the Corvette crowd. Gitkos wanted to make a plea to the local youth about becoming involved in the American Legion. The group is aging and needs some new blood, he said. In his 60s, Gitkos said he is one of the youngest members. He said anyone interested in becoming involved may contact him at 570.654.2261.

Frozen Yogurt shops offer customized alternative By Casey Martin Weekender Intern

Last summer, a new fad came into Northeast Pennsylvania. This addictive, creamy, sweet sensation has become an ideal replacement of those fatty treats. Frozen yogurt shops have popped up all over the area since last year. While trying to get in shape to fit that swimsuit, frozen yogurt could be that summer solution to getting the sweet satisfaction of ice cream while missing out on all the extra fat and calories. All the shops in the area are self-serve; go in, grab a cup, and start creating a unique treat to enjoy. Flavors can be picked on their own, swirled together, or piled onto each other for multiple new flavors. Every store has a topping bar with a variety of fresh fruits, candies, and extras. Once everything is all piled together, weigh the cup and pay per ounce. The customer is controlling the serving size, so for a diet, it is easy to just have a small snack and not have to pay for more than you plan to eat. “They just wanted to bring a new attraction to the Hazleton area,” said Beverly Neikam, a member of the family that started Yolo Frozen Yogurt (327 Laurel Mall, Hazleton), with 14 flavors of yogurt and over 50 toppings on the bar to go with them. In June 2012, this shop started selling not only yogurt, but also making yogurt cakes and pies, which are just as customizable as a cup of yogurt. It also hosts birthday parties that have packages with yogurt and pizza and allow kids to have space to dance around and have a fun time. Yogo Loco (1550 Main St., Dickson City) also opened in June of last year and will be celebrating its one-year anniversary in two weeks. It was started by a husband and wife who made it not just a frozen yogurt shop, but a place where all-natural food is served, such as smoothies, paninis, salads, warps, and flat breads. Being family-run, they are beginning

to think about franchising, but not in the near future. Dallas also got Loco Yoco (2450 Memorial Hwy.) in June of 2012, and they recently expanded by opening a second store this past March in West Pittston (801 Wyoming Ave.). Both of the owners live locally in the Back Loco Yoco Mountain area. “It seems to be a little more familyoriented that we stay to the outskirts of town,” said Randy Williams, one of the owners. They feature two special flavors: a sea salt caramel pretzel yogurt and a candy bar smash Greek yogurt. They are looking into more locations and plan on expanding further when possible. In August, Sweet Sweet Frog Frog (Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-Barre) became the first chain yogurt shop of its kind in the area. “Our goal is to provide a very rich, creamy flavor and try to make sure the product we offer you cannot tell the difference between us and an ice cream cone,” said Jim Lane, operations manager. They have approximately 200 locations in the United States, this one being the farthest north in Pennsylvania.

Weekender Wire Services VERY PERSONAL HYGIENE

Orestes De La Paz’s exhibit at the Frost Art Museum in Miami in May recalled Chuck Palahniuk’s novel and film “Fight Club,” in which lead character Tyler Durden’s principal income source was making upscale soap using discarded liposuctioned fat fetched from the garbage of cosmetic surgeons (thus closing the loop of fat from rich ladies recycled back to rich ladies). De La Paz told his mentor at Florida International University that he wanted only to display his own liposuctioned fat provocatively, but decided to make soap when he realized that the fat would otherwise quickly rot. Some visitors to the exhibit were able to wash their hands with the engineered soap, which De La Paz offered for sale at $1,000 a bar.

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

lawyers are less the cliche than they formerly were because of bar association crackdowns, but fire truck-chasing contractors and “public adjusters” are still a problem — at least in Florida, where the state Supreme Court tossed out a “48-hour” time-out rule that would have given casualty victims space to reflect on their losses before being overwhelmed by home-restoration salesmen. Consequently, as firefighters told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in May, the contractors are usually “right behind” them on the scene, pestering anxious or grief-stricken victims. The Sun-Sentinel found one woman being begged to sign up while she was still crying out for her dog that remained trapped in the blaze.

UNCONVENTIONAL TREATMENTS

— Researchers writing recently in the journal PLoS ONE disclosed that they had found certain types of dirt that contain antimicrobial agents capable of killing E. coli and the antibiotic-resistant MRSA. According to the article, medical “texts” back to 3000 B.C. mentioned clays that, when rubbed on wounds, reduce inflammation and pain. — Researchers writing in May in the journal Pediatrics found that some infants whose parents regularly sucked their babies’ pacifiers to clean them (rather than rinsing or boiling them) developed fewer allergies and cases of asthma. (On the other hand, parental-cleansing might make other maladies more likely, such as tooth decay.)

LEADING ECONOMIC INDICATORS

— Until recently, apparently, gene mutations were considered merely freaks of nature, but that was before Myriad Genetics obtained binding U.S. patents for mutations it discovered — now known as BRCA-1 and BRCA-2. Those mutations were in the news in May when actor Angelina Jolie

announced that she had chosen to have a double mastectomy based on the presence of the cancercausing mutations, which she had learned of through a Myriad Genetics test costing about $4,000. There is no price competition for the test, due to the patent, and Jolie, along with oncologists and OB-GYN doctors, fret that the test is too expensive for tens of millions of women around the world whose lives could be saved by knowing their status. — Archeologists discovered in May that a construction company had bulldozed 2,300-year-old Mayan ruins in northern Belize — simply to mine the rocks for road fill to build a highway. A researcher said it could hardly have been an accident, for the ruins were 100 feet high in an otherwise flat landscape, and a Tulane University anthropologist estimated that Mayan ruins are being mined for road fill an average of once a day in their ancient habitats. Said another, “(T)o realize” that Mayans created these structures using only stone tools and then “carried these materials on their heads” to build them — and then that bulldozers can almost instantly destroy them — is “mind-boggling.”

FINE POINTS OF LAW

A woman in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood reported to a local news blog in May that she had seen (and her husband briefly conversed with) a man who was operating a “drone” from a sidewalk, guiding the noisy device to a point just outside a third-floor window in a private home. The pilot said he was “doing research” and, perhaps protected by a 1946 U.S. Supreme Court decision, asserted that he was not violating anyone’s privacy because he, himself, was on a public sidewalk while the drone was in public airspace. The couple called for a police officer, but by the time one arrived, the pilot and his drone had departed, according to a report on the Capitol Hill Seattle blog.

— As recently as mid-May, people with disabilities had been earning hefty black-market fees by taking strangers into Disneyland and Disney World using the parks’ own liberal “disability” passes (which allow for up to five relatives or guests at a time to accompany the disabled person in skipping the sometimes-hours-long lines and having immediate access to the rides). The pass-holding “guide,” according to NBC’s “Today” show, could charge as much as $200 through advertising on CraigsList and via word-of-mouth to some travel agents. Following reports in the New York Post and other outlets, Disney was said in late May to be warning disabled permit-holders not to abuse the privilege. — After setting out to create a protective garment for mixed martial arts fighters, Jeremiah Raber of High Ridge, Mo., realized that his “groin protection device” could also help police, athletes and military contractors. Armored Nutshellz underwear, now selling for $125 each, has multiple layers of Kevlar plus another fabric called Dyneema, which Raber said can “resist” multiple shots from 9 mm and .22-caliber handguns. He said the Army will be testing Nutshellz in August, hoping it can reduce the number of servicemen who come home with devastating groin injuries. — “Ambulance-chasing”

PEOPLE WITH ISSUES

(1.) John Allison, 41, who was arrested inside a Hannaford’s grocery store in Massena, N.Y., in May, first aroused suspicion as an anticipated shoplifter, but it turns out that all he wanted to do was to remove a pepperoni from the meat case, rub it on his penis and put it back. He was charged with criminal mischief. (2.) David Beckman, 64, was charged in DuPage County, Ill., in May with misdemeanor animal cruelty after he allegedly sexually abused his pet peacock, “Phyl.”

ARE GIFT CARDS NOT ENTICING ENOUGH? CONTEST WINNERS FOR MAY, JUNE, AND JULY WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE ENTERED INTO MARC’S TATTOOING “WIN A TATTOO ARTIST FOR A DAY” CONTEST, WHERE YOU’LL HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN EXACTLY THAT - A TATTOO ARTIST AT YOUR BECK AND CALL.

The juice is loose Juicing has been around for ages but recently it has gained a lot of momentum and is one of the most popular fads in America. No matter where you go, it seems like everyone is talking about juicing and how it’s the greatest thing in the world. Juicing has been something I have wanted to try for quite some time, but because a proper juicer costs a few hundred dollars, it hasn’t exactly been a priority. Luckily for me, after a month of trying it out my mom and dad decided they weren’t all that into it so they passed on their top-ofthe-line juicer to me! Since I just starte,d I don’t feel any different, but I’m hearing that after about a week you feel lighter, have more energy and even start thinking a little clearer. Sounds good to me! The first juice I tried was called the “Green Machine” and it actually tasted pretty good. In it was the following: three stalks of celery, two cups of spinach, two cucumbers and one green apple. Adding a green apple takes away the bitterness and balances everything out, but you’re really supposed to juice mainly vegetables. I plan to start out slow and juice for breakfast every other day. Eventually, I would like to juice every morning. So why juice? Juicing is one of the most efficient ways to get concentrated nutrients into your body. When the liquid is extracted from fruits and vegetables, all of the fillers are left behind, meaning you

get more concentrated vitamins and minerals. With proper exercise and juicing I hope to lose some weight and to also have a little more energy. Plus, I just planted my garden - what else am I going to do with all of those vegetables? The great news about juicing is that it’s just as good for the environment as it is for you. We all know that the meat industry has a significant environmental toll as raising animals requires much more land and resources than raising vegetables. By cutting out meat a few days a week (or altogether) and replacing it with juicing, you’re cutting back on water pollution, air pollution, soil erosion, and energy use. In case you’re curious, I have the Omega Vert Low Speed Juicing System. This guy isn’t cheap, but it works great. Instead of grinding the vegetables, this juicer squeezes them, which allows the vegetables to maintain pure color and keep their nutrients and vitamins. I will warn you, though, cleaning these things is not fun. I’m not a nutritionist but I wouldn’t recommend going extreme and living on juice alone, despite what all the raw food enthusiasts might say. Moderation is definitely the key. Juicing works best when combined with a regular, healthy diet. Have you tried juicing? Let us know what you think! Is juicing just going to be another trend or is it here to stay?

Sign language By Caeriel Crestin

Weekender Correspondent

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) It may seem like your mouth is zippered shut and padlocked, and your writing hand be-mittened, at least when it comes to communicating anything emotional or sensitive. Even if you desperately want to express some deep, important conviction, you may find yourself so hopelessly encumbered and restricted that it will come out clumsily, if at all. Don’t struggle trying to convey your finer impulses this week. Be as crude and goofy as the situation seems to demand, and wait until next week, when your most complicated inner process will emerge melodiously from you, like poetry. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) When it comes to anything but love, you’re the world’s expert at getting what you want. In the romantic department, however, your manipulative skills and driven ambition more often work against you than for you. So you resort to charming but slightly ridiculous tactics, like wielding mistletoe in June just to get a kiss. My advice to you clueless Goats: Be transparent. False confidence doesn’t stretch too far in the romantic realm; it’s too easily exposed. Don’t pretend prowess where you have none. Just be real—that in itself is way more charming than you think. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can’t win every battle. Sometimes, strategic losing can win the war. Controlling when and where you give ground is essential when the odds are against you. This doesn’t solely apply to actual military action. Any conflict can be manipulated in this way. If you were producing an edgy television show for conservative producers, you might include a whole bunch of extraneous controversy, so the pieces you actually care about might make the final cut. Since your adversaries need the illusion that they have some power over you, start (and throw) a few fights you don’t mind losing, to up your chances of winning the ones you actually give a s—t about. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Hey, angel. Your halo is looking tarnished, and your molting wings are so bedraggled that you doubt you could fly your soiled robes to the Ethereal Laundromat. That’s okay, we’re tired of the tedious harp-accompanied hymns and pedestrian miracles you’ve been responsible for recently. What happened to the glorious days when you rode in on terrific fiery waves of glory, blasting trumpets, pulling off stunningly dramatic feats, like saving the exiled Hagar from the

CELEBRITY BIRTHDAYS Adriana Lima June 12, 1981 TIM ALLEN (pictured) June 13, 1953 Boy George June 14, 1961 Courtney Cox June 15, 1964 John Cho June 16, 1972 Arthur Darvill June 17, 1982 Renee Olstead June 18, 1989

wilderness? Honestly, if you can only be a little good, we’d rather you didn’t bother this week—be a little bad instead; it’s much more fun. ARIES (March 21-April 19) I dreamt you were paddling a leaky boat towards a mist-shrouded island castle, within which you expected to find your prince(ss). Confronted by a fearsome moat monster, rippling with scales and toothy malice, you simply bopped him on the nose with your oar and he sank out of sight. The towering edifice had impressive-looking defenses, but the rusty portcullis crumbled under your touch, and the “boiling” oil poured over you was merely lukewarm, leaving you slick but unharmed. By the time you found the subject of your quest, you were almost too bored to deliver the kiss that would rouse the sleeper from a hundred-year nap. The point? Instead of being frustrated by the very real challenges lying between you and your goals, be glad for them. They give your achievement value it would otherwise lack. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) I’ve never lived with a Taurus. From what I hear, you always pay your bills on time, take out the trash, wash your dishes, clean your hair out of the shower drain, and go to bed at a reasonable hour. In many ways, you sound like an ideal roommate— for someone just like you. I’ve also heard that you’re notoriously intolerant of anyone who doesn’t do all those things exactly as efficiently and consistently as you do. Although I’m sure that righteousness has pleasures all its own, won’t you consider that sweating the small stuff is a whole lot less fun than simply letting it go? GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Behind one door is a cage full of restless, hungry wild tigers. Behind the other lies

a moat full of crocodiles, piranha, and shark. These are your choices?! Sometimes life demands that you push through these challenges, and risk losing a limb to get to where you want to go. And sometimes the universe is giving you a hint: It might be better to stay put until the tigers fall asleep, or the swimming predators devour each other. When your choices are all sh—ty, it’s okay to hold your ground and wait until another opportunity presents itself. In this case, it won’t be long. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Giving birth to new ideas can be as uncomfortable, inconvenient, and downright excruciating as pushing a baby into this world. Painful tearing at the edges of your consciousness is likely, and it might be some years before the bloody, screaming mess that first appears develops into anything resembling the notion you had when it was still unborn. Despite that, I urge you to heed the psychological imperative that drives you to help invent these new possibilities. Aborting them now would be the kind of disaster that has you asking—every day, for the rest of your life—what might have been. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Leos share a sense of fraternity unequaled by other signs. Sure, Cancers understand each other, and Virgos delight in their mutual fastidiousness. But they don’t quite get what’s it like to be part of the Leo pride. There’s a myth that Leos prefer to maintain a certain distance from other Lions, to avoid sharing the spotlight, but smart ones, like you, know that an assembly of Leos synergistically shines much more brightly than any one alone can do. This week, enjoy the company of your fellow Sun-ruled superstars. More than just moth-like hangers-on will be attracted to that collective glow—at least one

phoenix is likely to immolate herself in that Leonine blaze, and she’ll gladly give you a lift on her way back up from the ashes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although you might be tempted to simply crunch through the hard candy shell of your current love interest, don’t. All those sharp, sugary shards would end up mixing with the gooey center. Although your impatience demands otherwise, take your time. There’s no need to be horribly bored, however; although this kind of delicate task isn’t usually your style, sweetly licking your way in could be deliciously entertaining for both of you, and by the time you get to it, the soft squishy succulence that lies beyond will be primed and ready for your mutual enjoyment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Recently you were like a planet at the edge of a solar system, orbiting around a sun so distant that its warmth and brightness could never quite reach you. Finally, that little star went supernova, washing you in a hint of what might have been, but also casting you loose. Now you’re a roving asteroid, sailing through the cosmos in some ways more free than you’ve ever been. Don’t be too quick to saddle yourself to another unrewarding trajectory rife with unrequited desire around an ungiving sun. Of course, an orbit that’s too close would leave you scorched and uninhabitable. Take your time choosing your new home, at a livable distance—not too close or too far—where you may enjoy the glow, but have a life of your own, too. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your flavor is so intense, robust, and rich that some people simply can’t handle it. It’s like fudge-covered, caramel-swirled, pecan-encrusted, 89% cocoa bittersweet triple chocolate ice cream. Others may experience concentrated cravings for exactly that much caloric gorgeousness, but are afraid that if they indulge in something so good, they’ll never again be able to settle for the plain old vanilla crap that’s more readily available. Your goal is to learn to accurately tell the difference between the lameasses you’re too much for, and the slightly fearful adventurers, and give the latter the only thing they need to conquer their hesitation: assurances that they can have their fill of you, and then some. -To contact Caeriel, send mail to sign. language.astrology@gmail.com.
