“The Motorcycle Globe of Death!”

Letter from the editor

When I was a little kid, no matter where I could be found — whether it was in my room, by the pool, in the branches of my favorite tree — more often than not, I was always scribbling something down in a notebook. Maybe I was relaying the details of my day, getting out some mid’90s teen angst in my journal or trying to craft one of the many story ideas I always had swimming in my head, but it’s a fact that a blue ink pen and some paper were never far from my reach. Not much has changed for me since those days when I was a naturally highlighted blonde except, of course, for the invention of computers and blogs — and the fact that many of my stories now go into this paper. I still journal, written in a hardcover book with my always trusty blue PaperMate pen, and I do blog on occasion, but for me, nothing could ever beat curling up on my favorite chair and getting my thoughts out in my journal. Maybe it’s old-school,

but writing by hand is much more therapeutic — and satisfying — than staring at a computer screen, which is why I am very excited about this week’s cover story on the Scranton Zine Fest. Jessica Meoni and the other festival co-coordinators get it — that need for dialing things back to handwrite thoughts and meet likeminded individuals face to face, with your Smartphones down. Find out more about the festival in Stephanie DeBalko’s story on pages 14-15. As always, thanks for reading. Nikki M. Mascali Weekender Editor Contact us letters@theweekender.com

news of the weird By Chuck Shepherd

Weekender Wire Services

WANTED: ENDOWED TEA FAIRY In Chinese legend, tea leaves picked by fairies using not their hands but just their mouths yielded brewed tea that would bring prosperity and cure diseases, and now the historic, picturesque Jiuhua Mountain Tea Plantation (in Gushi, Henan province) has promised to hire up to 10 female virgins to provide the equivalently pure and delicate tea leaves, picked with the teeth and dropped into small baskets worn around the women’s necks. According to an April report in London’s Daily Mail, only virgins with strong necks and lips (and a bra size of C-cup or larger), and without visible scars or blemishes, will be considered for the equivalent $80-a-day jobs (an almost unheard-of salary in China, especially for agricultural field work).

NOTE: Last month, News of the Weird reminded readers, with examples, that bizarre human adventures repeat themselves again and again. Here are a few more recent selections of previous themes:

Artists:

are very big business in Saudi Arabia, as News of the Weird reported in 2007, but the first one in Turkey (in Selcuk) was held in January and featured considerably lower-market camels. (The Turkish winner had been purchased for the equivalent of $26,000; a Saudi camel once won $10 million in a single show.) Judges supposedly look for muscle tone, elegance of tail wag and tooth quality, according to a January Wall Street Journal dispatch. Charisma is also important, according to one judge. “Camels,” he said, “realize that people are watching them (and) are trying to pose.” “Some will stop, open their back legs, and wave their tail, or (throw) their head back and moan ... this is the kind of posing we (judges) are looking for.” -- “Personal body orifices,” as storage units for contraband, seem more than ever in vogue. Recent inventories made by police of suspects’ vaginas included LSD in aluminum foil and marijuana in two sandwich bags (woman in Englewood, Fla., January); pills (woman in Manatee County, Fla., February); heroin (woman in Scranton, Pa., March); a fraudulent driver’s license and credit card (woman in Lee County, Fla., May) and pills and a knife (woman in Fort Myers, Fla., May). Rectal safe-keeping included a man with a baggie of marijuana (Louisville, Ky., March); a man with a marijuana pipe (Port St. Lucie, Fla., May) and a man with 30 items inside a condom (Sarasota, Fla., February), including a syringe, lip balm, six matches, a cigarette, 17 pills and a CVS receipt and coupon. UPDATES -- Christopher Bjerkness, 33, was arrested in May in Duluth, Minn., and charged with burglary

after being discovered mid-day in the physical-therapy room at the Chester Creek Academy. The room contained inflatable exercise balls that appeared to be undisturbed, but Bjerkness has been arrested at least twice before, in 2005 (reported in News of the Weird) and 2009, because of his self-described compulsion to slash inflatable balls. -- When News of the Weird first mentioned buzkashi (1989), it was merely the “national game” of Afghanistan, resembling hockey on horseback, with a dead goat (or calf, which is more durable) as the puck, carried by a team and deposited in a circle guarded by opponents (and played largely ruleless). As warlords’ power has grown, and the Taliban has departed, and Western money and commerce have been introduced, team owners now bid on the best players, some of whom also have lucrative product-endorsement contracts and are treated as Afghan royalty. Said champion player Jahaan Geer, 33, to a Wall Street Journal reporter in April, “I used to practice buzkashi on donkeys. Now I drive a Lexus!” -- David Truscott, 41, was convicted in Britain’s Truro Crown Court in February of violating a restraining order to keep away from the Woodbury House Farm in Redruth, Cornwall, after being caught there two times previously wallowing in the farm’s manure pit while masturbating. Said the prosecutor, “This is the only place (Truscott) seeks to gratify himself in this particular manner ...” W Handy addresses: NewsoftheWeird.blogspot.com, WeirdUniverse.net, WeirdNews@earthlink.net, NewsoftheWeird.com and P.O.

-- Cliche Come to Life: The person in the news most recently for slipping and falling on a banana peel might be Ida Valentine, 58, who filed a lawsuit in February against the 99 Cents Only chain after slipping on one while shopping in its store in Fontana, Calif., in April 2010. The fall, she said, left her with a herniated disk and tissue damage. -- The powerful suction of swimming pool filters can trap not only toddlers against the drain but a grown man in excellent physical condition, according to a lawsuit filed in May by the family of the late John Hoy Jr., who drowned when unable to pry himself loose from the vacuum drain of a hot tub at the Sandals resort in Nassau, Bahamas, in 2010. (The most notorious drainpegging of all time was perhaps a 1994 incident at a Scottish Inn motel in Lakeland, Fla., when a 33-year-old guest’s penis became stuck in the drain, apparently as he was testing the filter’s suction. That story did not appear in News of the Weird, but several sources cite a July 1994 story in the Sarasota Herald Tribune.) -- Beauty contests for camels

Scranton Zine Fest looks to unite artistic minds By Stephanie DeBalko Weekender Staff Writer

PAGE 14

S

cranton has a bit of a reputation. For being a hotbed of progressive artistic talent, that is. First Fridays, with its buzz of hopeful creativity and community involvement, breathed new life into the downtown area, and on Saturday, June 11, countless independent thinkers will be bringing their ideas to the Scranton Zine Fest, a celebration of selfpublished writers. The festival will be something of a two-part affair, where, from noon3 p.m., Center Street will be lined up and down with 21 “zinesters” trading and selling some original labors of love. A poetry reading featuring a number of local artists will then take place from 4-6 p.m. at Outrageous Cafe & Boutique.

I

INDEPENDENT THINKERS

n case you aren’t privy to the inner-workings of hipster culture, a zine is an original publication, generally printed and assembled by hand, usually with a small circulation, which varies in subject matter and is commonly not very profitable. In other words, it’s a creative outlet that is much more than the bohemian boom for which some people mistake it. Keeping with the independent theme of the medium, the Scranton Zine Fest, which is funded by a grant from Lackawanna County, boasts community partnerships with the vegan bath and body boutique, Fanciful Fox, Archbald-based ReadCycle Used Books and New Visions Studio & Gallery. “The Zine Fest itself is so important for everyone to just be

able to express themselves in a way that they’re comfortable,” said Amanda Fox, co-owner of Fanciful Fox, who will be selling her products at the festival. “I think zines are kind of a great outlet for (people), especially youths, to participate in.” Zines are a great way for writers to disseminate their work without compromise, and the Zine Festival will serve a number of different purposes — the most obvious of which is the opportunity for people to do something different. “I think stuff like First Friday and Zine Fest and any type of art festival or music festival or anything, it seems to be a good outlet for anyone in the community, and it brings a lot of people together that probably normally wouldn’t get together,” said Dale Wilsey Jr., one of the writers who will be taking part in the poetry reading. “I’m hoping people that normally wouldn’t show up to a poetry reading sort of show up to this, because I think a lot of people have the stigma in mind that poetry reading is bongos and snapping fingers, and that’s gone away. Every

reading I’ve been at, we’ve had fun, and it’s fun to see the mix of people, so I hope that’s what this brings, too.” It also creates an air of awareness as far as the talent that we already have in the area. “I think it’s important because, like with music, people get caught up with big-name things, and the locally-run artist efforts are essential, because that’s an undiscovered world of creativity,” said Rachael Goetzke, another writer who will contribute. A lot of zinesters from out of the area, including Philadelphia zine library Soap Box Independent Publishing Center and Philadelphiabased Parcell Press, will be engaging in various aspects of the event as well, meaning that writers who are involved can not only mingle and network with others in the area, but also with like-minded people from all over the East Coast. “It’s great because when I went to the Philadelphia zine festival, there was automatically a sense that, ‘Oh my God, there’s somebody that does what I do,’”


in 2008, that’s part of the appeal of the medium. It is a link to other people that doesn’t require a 24/7 tether to a Smartphone or computer. And the process of making it goes along the same lines. Hand-drawn art just has a different feel than its computer-generated counterpart. It’s true that Meoni has an unprecedented love for things that are considered antiquated by today’s standards — she is currently working on a new zine using not a computer, but a vintage Remington typewriter — but the 21-year-old trailblazer seems to have a point when it comes to the social standards that are becoming commonplace. “I guess, selfishly, I don’t want people to continue to stare at their phones, and stare at Facebook, and I just want them to get away really,” Meoni confessed. “I think that everyone is just kind of taught now to kind of silence themselves (and say), ‘I know this is going to be easier to be said in a text, I don’t need any communication skills.’ “The world isn’t like that, and that’s what zines are all about. They’re about communicating different ideas. It’s a different outlet.” W

Writer Dale Wilsey Jr.

said Jessica Meoni, one of the Scranton festival’s co-coordinators. “And you could just trade (zines) and stay in contact with those people, and it does build a network between people. You’re able to exchange ideas that way for a really long time, as long as you want. I think it’s going to be a great idea that way, too, because there’s all different kinds of zines.” Meoni was inspired to put on Scranton Zine Festival partly because of this, but she is no stranger to entrepreneurial event planning. In 2009, the Marywood University graphic design major organized LadyFest in Nay Aug Park, an art and music festival that benefited the Women’s Resource Center.

hile the nature of zines could be compared to blogging, Meoni would argue that, while blogging, just like computerdriven art programs, has its place in the writing world and in green living, the idea of actually holding a book, or a zine, is one that a lot of true literary lovers just can’t give up. “I’m not very fond of modern technology and things like that, and I think a lot of things are becoming lost,” Meoni said. “The idea of saving paper, putting it on the Internet or just on your computer, and things like that, that’s a whole idea of sustainability, but I see it more as like we’re losing tangibility. And I have vinyl records, and I like books, I like holding books. “Everything is just so much more disposable today. You can make a blog entry, hit submit, and that’s it. Or you can just put music on your iPod, only to delete it later. So I don’t like the whole idea of disposability in the modern age. I think that we’re losing a lot of good quality things.” For Meoni, who founded the “Ruthless” zine

hether it’s due to intense fear or complete fascination, most people tend to have a strong reaction to the topic of sharks. Thanks in part to movies like “Jaws” and “Open Water,” they’ve earned a reputation as being voracious predators that harbor a taste for human flesh. And while at least the latter part of that is not true, sharks now hold a high and chilling place in society, primarily because they reside in the most mysterious and unseen depths of the world. Juliet Eilperin explores this and essentially every other aspect of the species’ rise and demise — including the finning trade taking place that, if left unchecked, promises to deplete the oceans of this vital and independent fish — in her new book, “Demon Fish: Travels Through the Hidden World of Sharks,” due out June 14. The national environmental reporter for The Washington Post, Eilperin is a natural when it comes to reporting from the trenches, and her personal efforts in “Demon Fish” are no different. From the first page, it becomes evident that the book is not going to simply be a compilation of facts, but rather a unique balance of the truth surrounding the current predicament sharks are in (they are quickly vanishing from international waters due to overfishing and finning and an inability to reproduce quickly) and her own experiences. The author travels all over the world to not only observe the fish in its natural habitats, but also accompanies a trophy fisherman on jaunts with rich thrillseekers and gets an inside look at the underground world of fin trading. While the book seems to be an effort to dispel the myths surrounding the ocean’s top predator while lobbying for the necessity of its protection, Eilperin does an admirable job

“Demon Fish: Travels Through the Hidden World of Sharks” By Juliet Eilperin Rating: W W W W of writing in a voice that lacks bias. She even tries the muchcoveted shark fin soup, the disappointment of which only speaks to how shark fins are used as status symbols rather than any kind of gastronomic sustenance. People see them as a terrifying threat, not only because of attacks but because of their overall appearance (by the way, they have to keep their mouths open in order to breathe in the water, not so they can be ready to chomp off your leg while boogie-boarding), but the real threat is the disappearance of this creature. Eilperin a great deal of the book deferring to scientists and researchers, and they seem unanimous in the notion that if sharks disappear, the entire ecosystem could drastically change, and probably not for the better. Her writing weaves in and out of the incongruity between the menace with which sharks are associated and their survival’s dependence on humans to stop desecrating them. In a shocking and ironic twist, we now pose the threat to these creatures, our evolutionary ancestors, and Eilperin makes a convincing case for their preservation with well-researched and polished prose.

Beatles 'pay the bills' for Mahoney Brothers By Jourdaine Middleton Weekender Intern

O

n June 10, Beatles fans new and old will be brought together for a night of classic tunes with The Mahoney Brothers, “Elvis & the Beatles: The Concert That Never Happened.” Located at Bar on Oak in Pittston, bar owner Pat Marranca is eager for the appearance of Mahoney Brothers. “They’re doing it for so long and are extremely talented,” said Marranca. “I’m looking forward to having them, I’m excited.” The Mahoney Brothers began as a Beatles tribute act in 1977. These guys aren’t any ordinary cover band, though. While standard cover bands take the music and perform average imitations in plain clothes, the brothers capture the pristine detail of the British musical icons. Through costumes ranging from the bowl haircuts and black turtlenecks of early Beatles to the flamboyant “Sgt. Pepper” era, the band also emulates the Beatles’ voices in a flawless portrayal. Seen in a multitude of Maho-

ney Brothers shows, the performers match the Beatles’ classic instruments with Paul McCartney’s famous Hofner bass and the signature Rickenbacker guitars. With body language, head-bobbing, and chewing gum, Mahoney Brothers have turned themselves into a grade A Beatles act. “We listen to songs note-fornote and listen back … you know, the keyboards and the guitars,” said Tim Mahoney during a telephone interview, sharing that the band would watch videos of the live performances to capture the mannerisms of the artists. The band’s portrayal of the Beatles became an explosive success, titling their production “Long Live the Beatles!” By 1978, it played a sold-out Six Flags show in front of 10,000 people. Its greatest feat was a successful 1980 performance at Philadelphia’s Veteran Stadium in front of 37,000. With that piece of history under its belts, the Mahoney Brothers have been noted as the first tribute act to recreate the Beatles’ famous 1966 Dodgers Stadium concert. “It’s different, but we’re appropriate wherever we per-

form,” Mahoney said about making transitions between stadiums and small clubs. “We’ve played over 10,000 shows in stadiums and small venues ... In a club, we make the show more intimate.” In 1987, following a series of headlining performances for “Legends in Concert” in Las Vegas, Mahoney Brothers introduced “Jukebox Heroes Live!” Through this production, the brothers take a step back from the Beatles to bring on acts including, but not limited to, Neil Diamond, Willie Nelson, Elton John, Jerry Lee Lewis, and rock ’n’ roll king, Elvis Presley. Their inspiration to perform Elvis began when people overheard the Mahoney Brothers perform Presley songs during sound check. Youngest brother Mike Mahoney’s impersonation of Elvis’s voice has been described as “flawless.” Through the unlikelihood that Elvis and the Beatles would have performed a concert alongside each other, Mahoney Brothers were inspired to bring the two rock icons together as a “special club performance.” “They’re the two biggest acts,” said Tim Mahoney. “You don’t get to see those together.” From sold-out stadiums to small clubs, the Mahoney Brothers have made a fruitful living off of paying tribute to the artists they admire. “It wasn’t the original intent to do this,” said Mahoney, who mentioned that the band has had original music that started out in the Top 40 and got airplay during the ’80s. The brothers have also had original country music aired in the ’90s. While they have had recognition for their original music, the tribute performances have been what “pays the bills,” according to Mahoney.

choices once you get to your destination. Bicycle rentals are a great way to sightsee without harming the environment. When choosing your accommodations, make sure to do some research to find out what green policies it goes by. Hotels will often promote their eco-friendly practices, so it’s easier to find them. Look for hotels that recycle and use wind or solar energy. For most of us, it’s impossible to leave home without some sort of gadget, so try and grab a few eco-friendly items for your next trip. Rechargeable batteries are a great way to go green. If you can’t leave your music, movies and games at home, try getting a solar-powered media player. Most importantly, be respectful. When I was headed to Canyonlands National Park in Utah, I stopped at Newspaper Rock in the eastern part of the state. This rock is an ancient Indian monument that features one of the largest known collections of petroglyphs (rock engravings). Because this rock art is so accessible, it has also been subject to vandalism and destruction. So when you’re out at a national park or monument and signs say “Do not touch” or “Do not enter,” make sure you abide by the rules. W

he amount of interest in going green is soaring, and people are much more conscious of their carbon footprint these days. With summer here, that means travel and vacation are rapidly approaching. Eco travel is something we should all be aware of on our adventures this summer. When planning your vacation, be sure to keep our precious environment in the back of your mind. I recently took a cross-country road trip and explored many of our national parks. I was happy to see that every park offered recycling and made sure it kept the parks clean. Choosing a vacation destination based on whether it contributes to the well-being of our environment is a great way to enjoy an ecofriendly vacation. Grand Canyon National Park provides shuttles for visitors to use rather than creating more emissions driving their own vehicles around. It also utilizes consistent waste-recycling strategies as well as ways to use less water. Many families vacation overseas and far from home, so there is no other option but to fly. Since airplanes are huge contributors to the release of carbon dioxide, be sure to make green

tech talk

By Nick Delorenzo

Special to the Weekender

’80s tech ahead of its time

A

hh, the 21st century. We’ve got so much neat stuff floating around these days that it’s nearly impossible to keep up with it all. There are touch-screen devices everywhere. And video games that monitor how you move, and in some really nifty cases, what you’re thinking about. Yes, modern technology is wonderful ... when the timing is right. But even when all of the pieces are there, and you can put them together to make a fantastic product, if the people on the street don’t get it, it’s bound to flop. The average video-game player these days is fairly tech savvy. They have all the latest gadgets, all clearly the product of cuttingedge technological wizardry. But what if I told you that Milton Bradley released a touchscreen video console in 1982? What if I told you that a multitasking laptop was released in 1989 .... one that retailed at

about $1,200, and weighed about four pounds? And what if I said that the same year, the original Nintendo Gameboy came out, the one with the black-and-white screen? You could have been playing “Space Invaders” on a handheld device that could display 4,000-plus colors? It’s all true. Unfortunately, the mediocrity principle can apply with technology just like anything else. If people aren’t ready for the product yet, it seems to simply go away until they are. That touch-screen based device, the Vectrex, got axed in 1984, along with many other unique concepts, due to a crash of the video-game market. The Vectrex pioneered the use of drag-and-drop, and the manipulation of 3-D elements on computers, but it was released at the wrong time to succeed. That laptop that I mentioned? The Psion MC 400. It featured a touch-pad, many applications,

and it was small, light and relatively cheap in an era when laptops were the size of a small suitcase. It could even record and play back sound. But only 900 sold because people didn’t seem to be prepared for such capability in such a small package. And the handheld gaming system that rivaled the Gameboy? It was the Atari Lynx. It had a rich color display, you could network with up to 17 other players for multiplayer games — it was better than just about anything else on the market, but it failed due to lack of interest. I guess the moral here is that we shouldn’t be too proud of ourselves when we get the latest gizmo or gadget. Odds are they had it back in 1984.

Special to the Weekender

t’s funny how a No. 1 album can change your whole perspective on things. The trials and tribulations between Lupe Fiasco and Atlantic Records are well-documented, specifically over the release of Lupe’s latest LP, “Lasers.” Atlantic tried to give Fiasco the songs “Nothin’ On You” and “Airplanes” — aiming to bring him to a mainstream audience. Fiasco wanted none of it. Back and forth the two sides argued until Fiasco conceded and released some of the tracks his label wanted on the album. Fiasco says that in the end, he wanted to make sure the project saw the light of day for his fans who so highly anticipated it. “Lasers” debuted at No. 1, and the first single, “The Show Goes On” recently topped the charts. So can bygones just be bygones? “We’ll see,” Fiasco told me on the red carpet of the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. Fiasco performed with Trey Songz on the awards show this past Sunday evening in Los Angeles. “All of that’s kind of in the past now, but we’ll see.” Despite his dismissal of past tensions with Atlantic and the LP’s success, Fiasco still feels he didn’t receive enough freedom with the final track listing. Nonetheless, the Chicago emcee is already working on “Food & Liquor 2.” RED CARPET NEWS & NOTES While speaking to a group of reporters, Tyrese Gibson had quite a slip. Dennis Pastorizo of Terra.com asked the actor what his “Best Kiss” on camera was. Gibson misspoke and responded with “Megan Fox” before quickly blurting out, “Good, as in actress Meagan Good.” The

“Transformers” star laughed off his gaffe before leaving the carpet altogether. Tyrese and Good co-starred in a music video together, and Good took home the “Best Kiss” award for another piece of work at the ’07 MTV Movie Awards. Selena Gomez wasted no time getting down the carpet, escorted by a flurry of bodyguards and publicists. She did not walk with boyfriend Justin Bieber. My guess is that Gomez’s people want the focus to move away from her relationship with the pop star and on to the new movie she’s in, “Monte Carlo.” Bieber did arrive at the awards show later, showing up backstage after his documentary “Never Say Never” won a canister of gold popcorn. The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl was also in a rush down the carpet, but at least he had a legit reason. The lead singer revealed to me that his band was opening the show, so he couldn’t stop for interviews. We’ll see how Paul McDonald manages his engagement to Nikki Reed this summer while he’s on tour. The “American Idol” finalist and the “Twlight” actress met in March and showed off their new bling on the red carpet. McDonald told me that he’s looking forward to “Idols Live,” which will stop at Mohegan Sun Arena Aug. 21. How are things going for Tila Tequila these days? She was about five spots away from me on the carpet … no, not walking it. The former reality TV star was hosting a live video stream for a website. I’ll let you be the judge.

style irritant and convincingly evolves into a caring, genuinely sympathetic figure. Fassbender also impresses with his layered, vulnerable approach to Magneto. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for January Jones (who plays Emma Frost). Watching her try to move and talk is like watching a dog try to juggle. It’s unnatural and weird. How in the hell did this woman ever get a role on “Mad Men?” She has less range than a stove. Can’t we just exile her to the pages of Maxim and be done with her? All in all, “X-Men: First Class” is good — but it’s not particularly special. Sure, it’s nice to see a superhero period piece and the references and in-jokes are always appreciated, but there’s a workmanlike approach to this film that’s a little underwhelming. Will you enjoy “X-Men: First Class?” Sure. Will you remember it a week from now? Probably not.

Wheel of dreams For ‘Quidam’s’ German Wheel acrobat, gig a dream come true By Stephanie DeBalko

Weekender Staff Writer

N

ot merely a circus, not merely a theatrical production, Cirque du Soleil is an emotional tour de force that engages nearly all the senses. The entertainment company’s arena show about a young girl’s escape into an imaginary world, “Quidam,” is aiming to do just that at Mohegan Sun Arena June 15-19. It’s easy to appreciate the troupe’s exhibitions for what they are — awe-inspiring spectacles — but the unconventional nature of Cirque’s performances (including “Quidam,” which boasts a cast of some pretty unearthly personalities come to life through 52 acrobats, musicians, singers and characters) begs the question: How did those people get there? From the musicians who help tell the story and interpret the emotions involved to the acrobats and other performers whose day-today jobs involve astounding physical feats, what road led them to Cirque du Soleil? And aside from an absence of a fear of clowns, what does it take to be a part of something so theatrically staggering? The Weekender had the opportunity to chat with two uniquely different and interesting members of the cast, the band leader and the German Wheel artist, and if there was one central theme between both of them, it was that if you want to live the dream, you’ve got to be willing to do the dirty work — and Cirque du Soleil seems to be a melting pot of driven characters.

e’re all familiar with the story: Someone sets an outrageously specific and seemingly unattainable goal for their career. Rock star. Model. Astronaut. And usually, they end up in the throes of the nine-to-fiver society, trading in those ambitions for a reluctant acceptance of reality. Sometimes fate has a hand in determining whether those dreams pan out, but more often, good old-fash-

ioned hard work is the deciding factor — and some people just aren’t willing to go the extra mile. For Cirque du Soleil performer Cory Sylvester, however, the extra mile simply wasn’t good enough: He went about a thousand extra miles when he decided he wanted to be a part of the company’s “Quidam.” And when he set that goal, he never looked back. “Actually it was because I saw ‘Quidam’ in 1996 in Santa Monica, Calif.,” he explained. “Once I saw it, I just realized that it was something that was pretty moving to me, pretty intriguing to me. There was a program, a souvenir program, and in the back of it there was an ad that said, ‘If this is your dream, it can be possible at the National Circus School in Montreal.’ And I said, ‘OK, let’s see what that’s like.’” That one moment had a major impact on the direction his future career would take.

“Something was really starting, as far as just my whole path changing, just by seeing the show,” he said. Sylvester exudes a typical laid-back California attitude, but his work ethic and determination are more along the lines of a Wall Street mogul. When he realized that he wanted to learn the German Wheel, the apparatus he performs and opens “Quidam” with, he had no qualms about buckling down, and 10 years after that life-changing moment, and after making it through circus school, he finally had the chance to try out — and he made sure he was prepared. “When I would go and practice, I wasn’t ever going to just practice, or I wasn’t ever going to just do the German Wheel, I was going to practice for the Cirque du Soleil,” he said. “So by being specific, it allowed me to carry a different motivation through my practice.” And to be clear, he didn’t just practice. He

McCann School of Business to hold Spa Night By Marie Burrell

e are all stressed, even if only a tiny bit. Our bodies, minds and spirits yearn for relaxation. Yearn for peace. Yearn for rest. We can meditate to the sound of soft music, the aroma of freshly lit candles filling the air. But sometimes we need a little bit more. Sometimes we need a completely different sensation to satisfy what our senses crave. Sometimes we need to be pampered. And that’s just what the therapists at The Spa at McCann are there for. This Thursday, June 9 from 3-7 p.m., Spa Night returns to the Dickson City campus of McCann School of Business and Technology. Visitors can experience four different spa treatments — hand paraffin dips, foot reflexol-

ogy, chair massages and hand scrubs — for the cost of $5 per treatment or $15 for all four. Each treatment will last five minutes. There will also be an assortment of appetizers and finger foods provided. Donna Schriver, McCann’s massage therapy program director, said Spa Night was originally created as a way to let the public know that the spa is there, as well as promote the benefits of massage therapy. “Massage has a lot of benefits people don’t even realize,” she said. “It can help with sleeping, it can help with stress. I think massage is no longer a luxury, it’s a necessity. People are realizing what stress does to the body.” Despite the initial reasons for holding the event, Spa Night has become something much more: A way to give back to the community that supports them.

Thursday’s event benefits The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. “It’s nice to help different organizations,” she said. “I think that’s good for the students and for us.” And for students like Megan Fenwick, who will be participating in Spa Night for the first time, it’s a great way to contribute something to the community by using the skills taught at the school. Fenwick said that she really enjoys working with people and feels the event will be a lot of fun. “It’s nice to take the time out to pamper yourself sometimes,” she said. “The world is definitely a crazy place now, and I think everybody needs a chance to just sit down and relax, even if it’s for five minutes. It will be fun.” But while the students will be primarily providing the services available at Spa Night, they would not be able to do so without the proper training given to them by their instructors. Amanda Clabaugh, one of the massage therapy instructors at McCann, said that the students participating in the event will be rotating through the different services they are providing based on what their level of training is at this point in their programs. Clabaugh, who is also participating in her first Spa Night, said she agrees that it is a great opportunity for the students to get involved in the community by showcasing the healing capabilities of massage therapy, as well as giving something back. “For those who aren’t familiar with spa, it’s a great introduction,” she said. “You get a really nice experience with different aspects of spa. For those who are comfortable with spa, it’s a really nice way to get a little work done W and support a great cause.”

aunting, visceral, ethereal: These words have undoubtedly been used to describe many of the performances put on by Cirque du Soleil, especially the quietly chilling “Quidam,” but a very large part of creating that effect is the music behind the acrobats and dancers. With such a fluid stage production, not only is the music integral to telling the story and creating a mood, but it is also an entity that varies from moment to moment, and being in charge of that might seem, to the average person, like a daunting task. For Jim Bevan, though, the band leader for Cirque’s arena show, “Quidam,” that challenge was just the next logical step in a long and fruitful musical career. A talented conductor and keyboard player with a string of professional gigs under his belt, Bevan has been entrenched in

music for most of his life, and, considering his job description, only an experienced and passionate person could do what he does. “I conduct, I coordinate between the action and the music,” he said in a recent phone interview. “Like about half the time, they’re following the music, the performers out front, the acrobats, and the other half of the time, I follow them. Whatever they do, I just keep adjusting the performance, the timing of the performance to match them.” Obviously, the show has been practiced, and the music has been planned out in advance, but the nature of the program allows for some freedom of expression, and this is where Bevan and the band sometimes have the liberty to riff off a certain rhythm. It is also where things sometimes need to be adjusted in the case of mistakes or changes on the part of the stage performers. That’s the sort of thing that keeps a band leader on his toes, and might

intimidate someone with less experience than the accomplished Bevan. For him, though, it’s just another day in the life. “(It’s) stressful in just a fun way. You know, like downhill skiing is stressful,” he quipped. And speaking of a day in the life, since Bevan first hit the road with “Quidam” nine years ago, he’s only missed one week of the show’s performances, for his daughter’s wedding. Touring with “Quidam,” the flip side of the hard work and extreme commitment is the opportunity to travel all over the world and experience the influence other cultures can have, especially musically. “There was definitely one song where, we were in Dubai, and I had to rewrite part of the song because we had a different juggler … his act was longer than the other, and we sort of ended up with just sort of an Arabian house mix, kind of thing, just as techno,” Bevan recalled. “It’s still in there, there’s one part of it, it’s been changed since … just one melody, that’s just cool.” Though Bevan is responsible for monitoring the band for “Quidam” and keeping the members in line with the general style of a particular scene or song, he is quick to note that the overall performance is, without a doubt, a group effort. “We all do it together, because it’s nice because we’re right on stage, so when an act starts, it’s easy to feel the emotion that’s part of this act, because we’re just right there,” he said. “And the lights are dark or the lights are bright, and it’s serious or it’s fun. That’s pretty easy. I mean, I do it, but all eight of us do it.” W

A history lesson on two feet

but then again ... By Jim Rising

Weekender Correspondent

“One of the things that makes my job interesting is to talk to people and give them knowledge about things they wouldn’t know about.” Y Walk Leader Jim Brozena

Kirby Park, above, is one of Y Walk Wednesday’s many stops in Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton.

ummoning the motivation to get off your comfortable couch, turn off your overused TV and take a walk isn’t always the easiest task, nor is it the most enticing. Gym memberships — although admirable in theory — usually turn into a monthly tax for belonging to that unfamiliar gym you drive past on your way to Burger King. During that drive, you’ve probably seen monuments, churches, cemeteries and even forests that are usually dismissed or ignored as if they were the wallpaper in the kitchen you were raised in. The city we belong to is full of rich history and has a story to tell, and with the price of gas, why not ditch the car, learn some history and kill two birds with one stone? This summer, the YMCAs in Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton are offering that stone every Wednesday, starting June 8th. The birds: Historical enlightenment and active living. Y Walk Wednesdays are back for a second year, and now have 14 scheduled routes that prospective participants can look forward to. With each week offering a new theme and routes with names like “A Walk on the Wild Side” or “Keeping the Susquehanna Out of Our Living Rooms,” these walks are designed to get people to live

more active lives. “Why not come out for a walk, see the town, and listen to the birds,” said Vincent Cotrone, an urban forester for Penn State University and a walk leader for Y Walk Wednesdays. “If we all walked, we would be healthier and leaner.” The YMCA has scouted different locations and professionals of Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton to create a diverse lineup of walks and credible walk leaders. Cotrone is the guide of what he deems to be the longest of the scheduled walks. “It’s easily five miles,” Cotrone said. “Last year we didn’t get back to the Y until after dark.” He said that his walk is an exploration of the natural side of Kirby Park, and that it was a surprising experience for the group that participated in it last year. “People were amazed that we were in a forest that was two or three blocks away from the city,” Cotrone said. That’s just one of the adventures being offered this summer. For those who rather avoid a five-mile long hike through a forest, there are other educational routes they can take. Jim Brozena, the executive director of the Luzerne County Flood Protection Authority, leads “Keeping the Susquehanna Out of Your Living Room.” His walk is focused on the science of the levee system and how it keeps our living rooms Susquehanna River-free. He enjoys his involvement with the

Y Walk program and loves informing participants about what he does. “One of the things that makes my job interesting is to talk to people and give them knowledge about things they wouldn’t know about,” Brozena said. John Prober, the president of the Hazleton Cemetery Association, also enjoys educating participants about things he says they do not know, but they “should.” “The cemetery is very historic, but people are reluctant to go into the cemetery,” Probert said. “They should know the history of their community, and that’s a good place to start.” Each week features an expedition that explores places like King’s College, historic churches in Hazleton, Coal Street Park and other destinations that define the character of the city. All for the goal of being more active, avoiding the reliance of the unfamiliar gym you drive passed and enjoying an informative walk. “I’m not even a gym person myself, I’d rather be out running around,” Cotrone said. “The Y walks are good because they don’t ask people to go to the gym.” These walks are completely free, and they offer a way to get out and become more conscious of the community you live in. There’s nothing to lose — except a calorie or two. W Y Walk Wednesdays, starting June 8, 6 p.m. in downtown Wilkes-Barre and Hazleton.

After much toil, the pool at the Rising Ranch is open for business.

Swimming into submission O

pened the pool yesterday. Who would think four words could bring such pain and misery into your life? The Rising ranch came with a pool. It wasn’t why we made the choice, but it didn’t hurt either. On those few summer days when the weather is right, it is indeed a joy. The rest of the time it is an obligation. A Chinese curse, when you save someone’s life and are then responsible for them. Vacuum me, clean me, chlorinate me, skim me. It’s me, me, me with the pool. I have help to close the pool. But in the spring, I go it alone. The pool cover protects the pool from leaves and such falling into it over the cold months. These end up in the pool anyway in the process of removing it. The cover weighs four tons. This is, of course, only an estimate. Give or take several tons. There is a science, a methodology to removing the cover. The guy who closes the pool every year patiently explains it to me. You fold the ends to the middle and pull it off. When he does it it’s like a magician’s trick, the one where the tablecloth is removed and all the dishes stay in place. When I do it, all the leaves get in the pool. Then

the cover fills up with water, which is heavier than guilt. Trying to pull the waterfilled cover out of the pool by myself is like watching Sisyphus. I pull on one side, the other slides in the pool. I rush to that side and heave and the rest goes for a swim. Eventually I get the damn thing out and lie panting beside it. The water is a disturbing shade of green. It is so cloudy that the Loch Ness monster could be in its depths. All the leaves from the cover are floating merrily on the surface. The pump must be reassembled and started. This process takes hours of sweating, searching, trips back and forth to the house for more tools after I drop them into the murky depths of Lake Rising. Finally the pump pumps. Now the cleanup can begin. It takes a day to do it, which is why I am trying to type this without moving any part of my body. Because all parts of my body hurt. What do we do in summer in NEPA? We swim on that day. W Reach Jim at contact@jamesrising.com. Even more rants are on his blog, updated every day at jamesrising.com.


“Destroyed,” the latest album from electro-pop maven Moby, is a somewhat depressing look into life on the road. While many music fans look at the life of a rock star as glamorous and exciting, Moby uses this album as a vehicle to talk about the darker side of that experience: lack of sleep, isolation and dealing with surroundings that are constantly changing. “Destroyed” represents a bit of a return to Moby’s earlier style, with songs with less instrumentation and more of a pure electronic and synthesizerdriven sound. However, the

happy-go-lucky dance anthems Moby’s casual fans may expect are almost entirely nonexistent, and in terms of overall mood, it almost seems like he’s continuing right where he left off from his prior album, “Wait For Me.” The album begins with the aptly named “The Broken Places,” which serves as a perfect introduction for what is to follow. From track to track, “Destroyed” flows along and pulls the listener into a deep, mesmerizing trance evoking thoughts of loneliness, despair and a longing to be somewhere else. Songs such as “Be The One,” “The Day” and “When You Are Old” are

Sparks don’t ignite As the days get warmer and the evenings get longer, everyone’s summer soundtracks will start playing. Sparks The Rescue — a four-piece from Maine — may fit in somewhere with its second full-length of bright and bristling pop punk. “Worst Thing I’ve Been Cursed With” isn’t quite a home run, but it’s an adventurous and well-crafted album with more heft than it lets on at first listen. “Thought You Were the One” has

catchy guitar riffs and classic pop-punk “oh wa oh oh ohs” while the band continues to show its stylistic versatility on the acoustic “How to Make a Heart Hollow,” the upbeat “Holiday,” and straight through to the pop anthem “Saturday Skin.” The greatest difference between “The Worst Thing…” and Sparks’ previous album, “Eyes to the Sun,” is the technicality of the songs. Most obvious is the difference in guitar work from the first album to the next: The guitar melodies are far more complex and technical than they were before, and they sound much better. The downfall of the album is frontman Alex Roy’s vocals, which seem to run together with very similar progression. He doesn’t show much range, and the vocals are almost monotonous throughout the later tracks. This is common for the genre, therefore can be tolerable. The album will find a place in the hearts of true fans of classic pop punk, but a listener who wants something more may be let down. “The Worst Thing” has a pleasant, upbeat sound that grabs attention, but it may not keep it after a few listens.

Heavy, intense rehash

Rather than marking its 20th anniversary with a set of completely new and unheard of material, British metal band, My Dying Bride, opted to revamp the majority of its catalogue, giving its old material an entirely new vibe on “Evinta,” which was released last month. “Evinta” incorporates a collection of the band’s most well-known -- Matt Morgis material. However, the songs have Weekender Intern been completely reworked to include

3. Black Eyed Peas: “Just Can’t Get Enough” 2. Katy Perry/Kanye West: “E.T.” 1. Bruno Mars: “The Lazy Song”

Billboard Top Rock Songs

“Destroyed” new vocals throughout and new arrangements. MDB has garnered a reputation for being one of Europe’s most dark and melancholy bands, but despite that, its music is poetic in nature and also personifies sadness. Although none of that sadness is lost on “Evinta,” the group has incorporated a new and equally gloomy sound on this album. Rather than the aggressive and dark metal its fans are used to, “Evinta” is somewhat of a symphony. Each song on this two-disc set is filled with rich and sweeping instrumentals paired with almost opera-esque vocals at times. Some notable tracks on this release are the album’s opener, “In Your Dark Pavilion,” “Of Sorry Eyes In March” and “A Hand Of Awful Rewards.” “Evinta” is incredibly heavy and intense, to say the least. Each track is sorrowful and is unrelenting in its gloominess. Despite the band’s penchant for writing depressing music, My Dying Bride has outdone itself on “Evinta.” The album is technical and moving, and for diehard fans, this remastered work-of-art will definitely go over well and is a good indication that this is a band that does nothing halfheartedly.

ALBUM REVIEWS Moby’s murky music

particularly depressing (but still beg to be heard), and on only a few tracks are there any glimpse of light or thought of an escape from the world that Moby is describing on “Destroyed.” It’s not often that one can say that an artist has truly put part of themselves into an album, but one cannot help but feel some of what Moby has felt while composing “Destroyed.” While it may not be the most fun album to listen to, it’s thoughtful and wellcomposed and should allow fans a glimpse into the sometimes not-so-exciting world of being a rock star. Expressing emotion is difficult for many people, and to do that so well — either good feelings or bad ones — using sound and lyrics is a real gift.

Pretty much anything can inspire me to write a song, but most of the time it’s about friends or some kind of relationship.” “We like to write songs for our friends,” adds Sara. “And it’s not like we write separate songs.

here was a time, not so long ago, when if you were a high school freshman, releasing your own album was but a dream. First, you’d have to really begin to master your instrument and then somehow put together a really good band. Then, of course, it seemed the only way to make a record was get a record deal, which was nearly impossible, especially for someone so young. Times have changed. And for the better. And in the DIY world of 2011, even a group of high school students can cut and release a quality CD. Such is the case with Tell Me Tomorrow, an engaging and impressive group of teens that is about to release its debut CD, “Yours Tonight.” And despite the youth of the band’s members, the project was actually years in the making. “We wrote our first song in, like, fifth grade,” says vocalist and violinist Sara Scavone, who is joined in the group by her twin sister, Samantha. “My dad is a musician, and he always wrote songs, and it was just natural, I guess. Our dad is the one who taught us how to play the instruments we play. We’d always see him write songs, so we always

Tracks include “I Believe You,” “O’Captain” and “It’s 10 o’clock.” Samantha names The Beatles, Paramore and Never Shout Never as influences. Sara adds their classmates at Wyoming Valley West are appreciative of their music. “People at school are really supportive,” she says. “I guess it’s something different. Everyone has a different talent, and this is kind of just what we do.” Despite being too young to play bars and the recent closings of some of the area’s all-ages venues, Tell Me Tomorrow still gets gigs. The band recently played a “battle of the bands” event at Eleanor Rigby’s and will play the Plymouth Kielbasa Festival later this summer. The group will hold a CD-release party on Saturday, June 18 at the Downtown Arts Center. Future plans also include releasing the CD on 17 different online outlets, including iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon. “I want them to feel inspired,” says Samantha, when asked what she hopes listeners get of out of the band’s music. “I want them to be inspired, maybe not to do music, but to go out and do what they want to do and do what they think they’re good at.” “I hope they like our music and the way that we sound,” adds Sara. “And I definitely want to entertain people, and have them leave saying, ‘I had a really good time watching them,’ or ‘I could go see them again.’ That’s what I would like.” W

Style files

By Rachel A. Pugh

Weekender General Manager

Style Pick: Audrey Golosky of Scranton

A

udrey Golosky knows a thing or two about fashion. At a mere 4 feet 11 inches tall, this 20-year-old Scranton native has big tastes — even if she has to work them into some kids’ clothing sizes. Growing up, Golosky may not have had a whole lot of choices since she was either wearing her Scranton Prep school uniform or her cross-country attire, but during her senior year of high school, when she got a job and could start buying her own clothes, she began to develop her own sense of style. Now a senior English major at Temple University, this fashion-forward young lady mixes a natural look with an ultra-feminine twist and always makes sure she looks good to prepare her for any direction her day might take her. A fan of Free People Clothing Boutique, Urban Outfitters and Zappos. com (due to their wide selection and speedy turnaround time), Golosky often has to rely on the kids’ section when choosing attire for her tiny stature. “I really like pants for some reason,” she says of her shopping habits. “But a lot of times I have to buy kid-size pants. I shop a lot at J. Crew Kids because they

I always wear this white gold heart necklace. A boy gave it to me when I was 15 — I don’t even talk to him anymore, but I just like it.”

PAGE 41

have really nice pants.” Golosky’s favorite selection of her wardrobe is a particular button-down blouse. Depending upon it as her security shirt, she can guarantee that, no matter what kind of fashion day she is having, she will be able to pull the outfit off if wearing this shirt. “It always looks good,” she says. When asked to describe her style, Golosky struggles with a definitive answer. “Sometimes I shop for specific items that will make the entire outfit,” she shares. “Other times, I shop for stuff that will go with everything.” For this shoot, Golosky is wearing a peach ruffle dress from Urban Outfitters; high-waist shorts from Urban Outfitters with a red tank top from American Eagle; a soft blue denim dress from Free People; skinny jeans from Abercrombie Kids with a Free People vest and Frye red leather open-toe sandals, purchased from zappos.com..

Dave Yachera of Hazleton “My father bought the car for me when I was a junior in high school,” shares Yachera, who has owned this Camaro since 1970. “I couldn’t believe it when I came home from school that day and saw the car. “I started to restore the car about three years ago. I had trouble finding someone to paint the car at a reasonable price,” he says, adding that he eventually took the Camaro to Tony Durso, who sold the car to his father and agreed to paint the exterior Matador Red.

WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 2011

By Nikki M. Mascali

Weekender Editor

Ben Sargent, host of ‘Hook, Line & Dinner,’ which debuted on the Cooking Channel Tuesday, June 7.

“It’s following the fish from sea to table.” Ben Sargent on what viewers can expect from his show

kitchen. And what’s cool about that is we usually arrive at the worst times, right at their busiest hours, middle of lunch, middle of dinner. We want to be right in the action, and it’s amazing; burning, scalding-hot pans, tickets flying, everybody’s shouting at each other. It’s the real deal, and I just jump right into the action and try not to get in the way. WEEKENDER: Where was your favorite place you filmed? SARGENT: It’s hard to say because on the one hand, places like Portland, Ore., felt so legitimate. You’re talking high seas, freezing-cold weather — this is fishing at its best. But here I am on my motorcycle freezing, freezing, and the next thing I know I have to get on a boat, which is going to get even colder! While that was so legit, I have to say when I got to places like San Diego, and the sun was shining on me, and I’m in a T-shirt, I was so happy! And then I got to do cool things, like diving for urchins … and the next thing you know, you’re eating fresh urchin on the boat. It doesn’t get any better than that. WEEKENDER: What is the No. 1 lesson you’d like your viewers to learn about seafood? SARGENT: First off, I would just say that it’s not difficult.

Seafood is actually one of the easier things to cook. One of the other things I would say is that, as a consumer, you’re going to learn a little something from the show. WEEKENDER: Lobster rolls are your thing. What makes The Perfect Roll? SARGENT: Simplicity. Like everything we do on the show, it’s starting with a fresh product. In my case, what made my lobster roll somewhat famous is that my lobster was coming from Maine, sometimes it wasn’t even 24 hours out of Maine’s ocean water. Let the key ingredient, lobster, shine through. Don’t start with your mayonnaise, start with your lobster — the mayo is a little something extra, and butter is the same. I don’t do any garnishing, I don’t put a bed of lettuce on there, I don’t even put celery — it’s all about the lobster. WEEKENDER: What are two things you always have in fridge? SARGENT: Well … lobster (laughs). Back in the day, I probably had $3,000 worth of lobster in my fridge at any given moment, I’d actually designate my entire fridge to lobster, even in the little egg compartment on the side. Another thing is Old Bay, I’m a big fan of Old Bay, and I have it everywhere, not in the refrigerator, but I should own stock in that company. “Hook, Line & Dinner” airs Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. on Cooking Channel.

SARGENT LOBSTER ast week, Dish had a chance to chat with Ben Sargent, host of “Hook, Line & Dinner,” which debuted on the Cooking Channel Tuesday, June 7. Known as “The Lobster Pusha Man,” thanks to his Underground Lobster Pound, where the surfer/restaurateur sold lobster rolls out of his Brooklyn apartment, “Hook, Line & Dinner” follows Sargent coast to coast as he joins seafood on its journey from sea to table. Sargent, whose grandfather was a fishery head, grew up in Cambridge, Mass., and graduated with a bachelor’s in fine arts with a concentration in sculpture. WEEKENDER: How did fine arts lead to owning a seafood restaurant? SARGENT: I ask myself that all the time (laughs). I moved to New York to intern with an artist, and I discovered, strangely, surfing, which was a past passion of mine. I discovered it in Rockaway, Queens and knew immediately that I wanted to open up a little place for these strange New York surfers so they have a hangout. … I couldn’t do a surf shop because there wasn’t a lot of us; I needed something to bring people in, and there’s nothing better than a little food and beer. At that time, the thing I was most familiar cooking with was New England-style seafood, so I immediately called my father and said that I needed (my grandfather’s) recipe for New England clam chowder — my family does the New England seafood thing pretty naturally. I didn’t need much, just four to five chowders, some lobster rolls. WEEKENDER: What can people expect from “Hook, Line & Dinner?” SARGENT: It’s a really legitimate show in the sense that when I’m fishing with these guys, it’s following the fish from sea to table. I go to the end of the dock on my motorcycle, I find the fisherman, and I get on the boat with them. I will sometimes get seasick, which is really embarrassing, especially when the crew doesn’t. Then we follow the seafood right to the processor, and from the processor to the chef in the

Courage, a gray tabby cat, has been at the SPCA for more than a year.

Bikers: An animal's best friend

O

days.” Walking into the SPCA in Plains Twp., there is a tally board that reads: “In May, the shelter received 544 animals. There were 142 dogs, 379 cats and 23 other animals dropped off at the shelter. That’s just one month. “The younger generation is not getting their animals spayed or neutered,” Moran said. When you don’t spay or neuter your animal, it affects many facets: The behavior of the animal, the health of the animal, the social responsibility of the owners and it is the No. 1 reason for animal abuse. Prevent abuse, spay and neuter your pet. That’s the message from this shelter. Moran also mentioned that to help with the costs for these procedures, the SPCA does have an assistance program. If you are eligible, you would pay only $10 to neuter a male cat, and $15 for a female cat spay. Moran also mentioned that June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. These cats are free to a really good home. They just ask that you consider making a donation to the spay and neuter program. They believe that adoption is the best option. I met a little gray tabby cat named Courage,

he’s been at the shelter for more than a year. He really wants someone to come and give him a good home. While there I also met Roxie, she’s an English bulldog who is being used as the new educational dog. She is owned by Janet Horney. The SPCA offers all kinds of educational programs from pre-k right through high school. Moran, who is allergic to cats and dogs, seems an unlikely fit for an animal shelter. “I’ve always believed, if you are going to do something for your livelihood, it should be something that benefits other people,” she said. “This is a great job. I get to teach people how to take care of animals. This job is cool.” And you can see how all the animals (and even the staff) enjoy being around Moran. This is what the WVMC sees as well when they keep coming back to run this event for the animals — a way to give back to those who have no voice and no one else to help.

quite an inappropriate pace. An unknown amount of martinis and one drunk sweat later, the stumbling “Olly Girl” asked me to take a picture of her middle finger with her cell phone so she could send it to her boyfriend. “He’s an ass,” she slurred, middle finger upright. “He goes to bed early like an old man and wakes up at four in the morning, and he works at E!” Familiar with Seacrest’s workload, I jokingly suggested, “Are you dating Ryan Seacrest?” Her eyes opened wide, and she spit her drink out while her roommate nodded, placing her finger over her lips implying it was a secret. This reaction confirmed for me that Seacrest was “allegedly” tickling her belly from the inside! I couldn’t believe I uncovered who the host of “American Idol” was smashing pissers with. Two months later, Perez Hilton broke the story on his blog, but I unraveled celebrity gossip firsthand two months before him, so, in your face, Perez, you ugly, nasty, filthy piece of troll shit!

It was easy to make small talk with the “Olly Girl,” as we mutually found ourselves drinking at quite an inappropriate pace.

n Sunday, June 12, motorcycle enthusiasts will show that they are indeed dog’s and cat’s best friends. Sunday marks the 15th year that motorcycle riders have been coming out to pitch in and help animals at the SPCA. For 13 of those years, the Wyoming Valley Motorcycle club (WVMC) has run the rain-or-shine event, which will be held at Bentley’s (2300 Route 309, Ashley) with Outta the Blue Band. Registration, which runs from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., is at the Plains Twp. SPCA (524 E. Main St., Plains Twp.). “It is awesome that they do this for us,” Cary Moran of the SPCA said. “What’s really great is that they do all the work.” Moran was sad to have to break the news that Angus, the beloved St. Bernard dog that opened the ride each year, had passed away. However, A.J., who is also a St. Bernard, will be there to try to fill in Angus’s spot. When asked about the needs of the animals this year Moran said, “The priority is to keep the shelter going, and to raise awareness for their spay and neuter program. Last week we had 73 cats dropped off over a period of three

ou can dress a pig in a suit, but you can’t stop him from grunting. The same goes for an intern who lives by the motto “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere” and has a knack for mischief. Dress them in a suit, and they’ll still find an excuse to double-fist vodka martinis while managing to get Ryan Seacrest’s secret girlfriend to admit he was a passenger on her skin bus into tuna town, in so many words … It was E!’s Oscar After Party 2008! The event was televised live from the Roosevelt Hotel in the center of Hollywood. When I was given the opportunity to be one of the 40 guests to appear as an “extra” in the background of the E! personalities recapping the night, I jumped on it. Not only was I drawn to the chance of appearing on TV, but I was sold to the fact the event would have an open bar. The party was held on a bright, stunning set inside the Roosevelt. Producers placed four to five people around a transparent table that lit up. When one of the “Olly Girls” from the E! reality show “Sunset Tan” was assigned to my table, I knew the night would get interesting. It was easy to make small talk with the “Olly Girl,” as we mutually found ourselves drinking at

sign language By Caeriel Crestin

Weekender Correspondent

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) If you could potentially stop someone from hurting themselves, you should feel some obligation to try. Of course, there’s only so much you can do — but that’s no excuse to simply do nothing. Take your friend’s keys away when he tries to leave that party drunk. Perhaps the situation you could prevent this week is less obvious than that, but the basic idea is the same. Your hands may be somewhat tied here, but don’t delude yourself into thinking you’re powerless. Speak up, step up — just don’t stand back and watch. Even if you don’t succeed, at least you won’t have to regret not trying. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) There are a million things we do that tacitly support stuff we don’t approve of. Buying gas, paying taxes and numerous other purchases probably end up fueling something you’d rather they didn’t. It’s laudable to attempt to minimize that kind of thing by being conscious of where your money goes and what’s done with it, or making efforts to counterbalance it when you can’t (is there a truly ethical company to buy gasoline from, for example?). But at some point you have to let yourself (and the people you know) off the hook — or drive everyone crazy. Those are your options.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Every time you get burned, extending trust becomes more difficult. But it also becomes more important. Each new person is just as likely (or, yes, unlikely) to deserve your trust as the last, and really shouldn’t be treated as a liar simply because you’ve encountered deceitful people in your past. That’s not to say you should simply blindly trust anyone who comes along. However, being willing to take an educated leap of faith early on will get you burned a few more times, sure, but it will also make you, ultimately, a much happier person. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) This week, let intentions count for more than actions. That’s important because some of those actions are likely to majorly piss you off. However, if you consider the excellent (if misguided, foolish, or clumsy) intentions behind the annoying shit that’s happened, you may find yourself feeling touched or affectionate, despite your irritation. That’d be a good thing, because your poor, sweet friend really shouldn’t be punished for simply being bad at doing you a good

turn. You don’t need to pretend to be thrilled at how things played out, but you ought to be able to appreciate what they were aiming for, no matter how badly they missed the mark. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Although you try very hard to avoid conflict, sometimes it’s simply inevitable. In those situations, you also try very hard to avoid being “the bad guy.” Unfortunately, you can’t always be the good guy. You screw up too. That’s OK. The important thing is to own and accept it, instead of trying to shift the blame or evade the consequences. Dealing with the fallout of poor choices is easy for, say, an Aries, who generally leaps before she looks, or a Scorpio, who’s drawn to dangerous scenarios, so they’ve had a lot of practice. You haven’t. This week, however, you’re about to get a bit more. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Call the bluff. If someone’s trying to manipulate you into doing something by making threats or over-the-top entreaties, call them on it. You don’t need to be dramatic about it, but you don’t need to cater to their melodrama, either. Try: “I hope you won’t, but do what you’ve got to do.” Then walk away. That might be a little scary, depending on what they’re saying, but it’s nothing compared to where you might end up if you cave in to their emotional bullying. You need to get to a place where they can deal with you in a reasonable manner, not like a spoiled child — and this is one way to get there.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Most relationships fail. It’s not you; it’s the nature of the beast. Sure, some people get lucky and score a long-lasting relationship on their first try (but you can bet it’s not as simple and fantastic as it looks from the outside), others require quite a few tries, and some never find it. That’s all OK. So much of love is situation and timing. Try not to let the missed chances and failed romances of your past influence how you feel about yourself today. Not only are you a different person now than you were then, so much of whether or not you succeeded was never up to you, anyway. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Every time my life feels even just a little bit shitty, I force myself to snap out of feeling sorry for myself by choosing to notice all the good things I’ve got going on: being healthy, living in a time when I can eat better than a king could a couple centuries ago (on a shoe-string budget, no less), being able to do lots of stuff that many people in the world will probably never get a chance to and for just being alive. Get some perspective. Your problems are only a tiny fraction of the big picture and nowhere near as terrible or insurmountable as you’re making them out to be. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Worrying about what other people think of you really should have stopped once you graduated high school. But sometimes it’s not as easy as that, espe-

cially when those people have some power over you or influence on your life, like employers or in-laws. However, remember the most liberating times in your high school days when you did what felt right no matter what people thought, and to hell with the consequences! Whether or not you ever got to experience that heady freedom then, it’s time to feel it now. Just go for it this week. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You may be the most flexible sign in the zodiac (in more ways than one!), but that doesn’t mean you should let anyone steamroll you. It’s easy to get knocked down by a bull-headed Taurus or bowled over by a Leo’s incredible enthusiasm, but sometimes you just need to do what you can to stay on your feet and hold your ground. First step is decide to stick to your guns; second step is figuring out, quickly, which direction those guns are pointing. Easier said than done, I know, but it’s good practice for you in general — not all decisions can wait for you to make up your curious but notoriously indecisive mind. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You Rams are usually great at getting what you want, because you’re very clear on just what that is. (Of course, once you get it, you may realize you didn’t actually want it, but that’s another story.) This week, lend your expertise to someone who needs it. I’m not talking about a “how-to-get-what-you-want” lesson, so much as “how to figure out what you want.” That’s the problem your friend is having. Help them get it sorted. Once they know exactly what they’re looking for, getting it will almost seem like an afterthought. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Taureans are practical hedonists. Generally, you know exactly how to strike the right balance between saving for a rainy day and simply enjoying the pleasures of today. There are those in your life, however, who are about as far from that wise equilibrium as one can get. Some scrimp and save and never indulge themselves, while others live it up today and forget to think about tomorrow. Help these poor souls figure that shit out. The Scrooges need to learn to live, and the party animals must be taught how to plan for the future — and no one is better suited to impart both lessons than you are.

The Lakeside Players will present the thought-provoking comedy, “The Love List” at Lakeville Community Hall (Route 590, Lakeville) Friday-Sunday, June 10-12. The comedy stars Frank DeSando (Bill), Mike Lally (Leon) and Roxan Schwartz (Justine), pictured above, in a play that riffs off the old theme, “Be careful what you wish for.” The two bachelors brainstorm their 10 ideal qualities that a mate should have, and when a woman who fits the bill shows up, they quickly realize their hair-brained scheme could use a little work. “The Love List” will be performed Friday and Saturday from 7:30 p.m., and Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets are $12 or $10 for groups of 10 or more and are available at the door or by calling 570.226.6207.
