Letter from the editor

I’ve always been a huge animal lover, to the point where I never had the natural fear some people do of four-legged creatures. Perhaps that was to my detriment, because when I was a wee little babe, I was constantly being reprimanded for walking up to strange dogs and sticking my face right up in theirs to say hello. When Nikki Mascali and I visited the Hillside SPCA in Pottsville to gather information for this week’s cover story, shelter manager Barbara Umlauf took us to the room where potential Loveable Pinky intently watches owners and dogs can get to know one another, and me interview Barbara Umlauf we were greeted by a huge during my visit to Hillside SPCA.

news of the weird By Chuck Shepherd Weekender Wire Services

The convenient Russian myth that “beer” (up to 10 percent alcohol by volume) is a “soft drink” will end shortly, following the enactment of restrictions signed by President Dmitry Medvedev in July. Beer had been rapidly replacing vodka as the country’s primary alcoholic beverage, as people drank it with impunity around the clock in public places (since they pretended they were consuming nothing more powerful than a “cola”).

PAGE 12

DOUBLE AGENTS “When I get to Africa, I have to worship him,” said Elizabeth Osei, part-time first lady of the Akwamu people of eastern Ghana, speaking of her husband Isaac, who is the Akwamu chief. “When I get back, he has to worship me” (because Elizabeth is the president of the couple’s New York City taxi company, where they work 12-hour days when they’re not Ghanian royalty). Isaac’s reign, according to an August New York Times report, covers several months a year and requires divine-like wisdom in adjudicating his people’s disputes. Another New Yorker with a prestigious double life is Mohamed Mohamed, a state transportation bureaucrat, who recently returned to his cubicle in Buffalo, N.Y., after nine months as prime minister of Somalia. The Buffalo News reported that the Somali native, though shocked by the level of the country’s dysfunction, at least got to stand up to “terrorists, pirates and warlords” and “address dignitaries from the United Nations.” LATEST RELIGIOUS MESSAGES -- My Rules: The Aug. 6 revival spectacular in Houston, billed as a day of prayer and attended by 30,000 people at Reliant Stadium, was also billed as a day of fasting, which apparently took at least a few worshipers by surprise, and Reliant’s concession stands (which were open all day) only added to the temptation to ignore the fast. One otherwise-devout man from San Angelo, Texas, told the Texas Tribune that it was OK for him to eat because of an

“agreement” he “made with God earlier.” -- Defining “Smite” Down: Fed up with the theft of Bibles from the Basilica of San Salvatore al Monte in Florence, Italy, the Franciscan priests in charge posted signs and spoke prayers urging the pilferer to repent. In the event that he does not, reported London’s Daily Telegraph in August, the prayer asked that the thief be afflicted with “a strong bout of the (runs).” AMERICA IN DECLINE -- Direct Pipelines from the Pentagon to U.S. Enemies: (1) A U.S. military investigation disclosed (according to a July Washington Post report) that at least four of the eight Afghan trucking firms involved in a $2.16 billion Pentagon contract designed to ferry supplies to American troops are likely to have employed subcontractors with direct ties to the Afghan Taliban. (2) United Nations investigators revealed (according to an August New York Times report) that about half of the U.S.-supplied weapons for Ugandan and Burundian troops to battle the Somalian terror group al-Shabab have ultimately wound up in al-Shabab’s hands. (The poorly paid Ugandan and Burundian troops apparently found arms sales more profitable than fighting terrorists.) PEOPLE WITH ISSUES -- Ned Nefer, 38, pushed a 6-foot mannequin along U.S. Highway 11 in June, for 65 miles from Syracuse, N.Y., to Watertown, N.Y., because “(The mannequin and I) really love the outdoors.” The mannequin, Nefer said, is his wife “Teagan,” who came to Nefer merely as a

head but for whom Nefer constructed a body and “married” in 1986. Said a Watertown social services worker, to the Watertown Daily News, “I wouldn’t classify (Nefer) as dangerous at all. He seemed quite happy in his own little world.” Nefer’s “first” wife passed away, and it is possible, the social services lady said, that this is his way of dealing with the loss. LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS -- Charged with crimes that could send him to prison for life, Gary LaBon, 50, nonetheless chose to defend himself at trial and told the jury in August that any kidnapping, rape or assault he might have committed on the 69-year-old woman in Hawthorne, Calif., in 2009 was “self-defense.” LaBon insisted that he was in fear for his life because the woman was a “gang member.” Judge Kathryn Solorzano took the unusual step of advising the jury to “disregard most of what Labon said during his argument,” according to the Daily Breeze of Torrance, Calif. (Jurors quickly convicted LaBon on all counts, and he awaits sentencing.) RECURRING THEMES -- From time to time, Tibetan Buddhists inadvertently support the seafood industry with campaigns of “liberation” of living beings. In August, a Buddhist group purchased 534 lobsters from a Gloucester, Mass., wholesaler, sprayed them with holy water, clipped off their claw bindings, and released them into the Atlantic Ocean. (Of course, the lobsters were almost certainly re-caught, by Gloucester lobstermen.) (A 2004 News of the Weird story from Marina del Rey, Calif., reported that a Buddhist group made monthly pilgrimages to the harbor, purchased bait and “liberated” it, though it almost certainly was immediately eaten by fish.)

Edelweiss released its debut CD, ‘Pre-Columbians,’ Tuesday, Sept. 13. Its cover is pictured below.

Edelweiss makes its 'debut to the world' By Marie Burrell

Weekender Correspondent

PAGE 14

I

ndependent music has become increasingly popular over the years, with bands starting up on their own to bring their sound to the airwaves. It’s a time where “garage bands” no longer just linger in the garage, but work their way from one local venue to another. And as listeners, we get to pick and choose from a buffet of audible pleasure treats, something that had been nearly impossible when major record labels decided what would be spread to the masses. And for Stroudsburg local Edelweiss, it took the next step in spreading its music with the release of its debut EP, “Pre-Columbians,” which came out Tuesday, Sept. 13, and the upcoming release show at the Sherman Theater Saturday, Sept. 17 at 6 p.m. Niko Porlier, guitarist/vocalist for Edelweiss, is excited about finally releasing the EP, which had originally been scheduled to come out in July, and the Sherman show. “It’s pretty much our debut to the world,” he said. “We’ve never released anything before this except for the ‘No’ single. So this is really our first shot at everything. I think if people like indie music, it’s a good addition to that world, which is quickly growing now. I think it’s important to broaden your spectrum.” Having only been around for about a year and a half, Porlier

said the band started out as just himself and his younger brother Coby on drums with their father playing bass. Eventually, bassist/ vocalist Tommy Vitale and guitarist Tony Young joined up with the group. Porlier said they all got together because each of them had a love for music, his own coming from growing up listening to musicians such as Jimi Hendrix. “I was one of those kids who, when I listened to music, I didn’t picture the artist playing it,” he said. “I pictured myself playing their music. I think that’s kind of what set it up for me wanting to be in a band.” Influenced by other indie bands such as Bloc Party and Arctic Monkeys, Porlier and Vitale described the band’s sound as upbeat and punkish. And while they are all still young, with members’ ages ranging from 15-17, Vitale said they have been working hard to rehearse and write new songs during their free time, which is mostly just Friday nights due to school and other schedule conflicts.

“It’s a long process but totally worth it,” Vitale said. “All of our songs are different, none of them sound the same. Every song is influenced by a different band and has a whole different mood.” The setlist for Saturday’s show at the Sherman, which the band often refers to as “home base” since it’s played the venue regularly, includes the five tracks from the new EP as well as some of its other original music. Vital shared that New Jersey natives Brick+Morter and Rewind the Crisis and East Stroudsburg-based Mostly Lows are also on the night’s lineup. The first 500 people who come to the show will receive a code for a free download of “Pre-Columbians.” For the members of Edelweiss, they feel this is a great opportunity for them to reach out further and share the music that they love to play with the area where they got their start. And according to Porlier, it’s not an opportunity that will happen often. “This isn’t going to be happening again for a long time,” he said. “We don’t want to overplay the area, but would rather spread out some. If you want to see what it’s all about and hear the music for yourself, come see the show.” W Edelweiss EP-release show, Sat., Sept. 17, 6 p.m., Sherman Theater (520 Main St., Stroudsburg). Tickets: $10. Info: 570.420.2808, shermantheater.com

Animals, including the cat and dogs pictured above, seem to enjoy the amenities Hillside SPCA provides. Bottom right, Dan Kisacky and Josh Somits will ride from Hillside to Seaside to benefit the no-kill shelter.

‘I can’t possibly turn them away’ Workers’ selflessness inspires bicycletour fundraiser for Hillside SPCA

By Stephanie DeBalko Weekender Staff Writer

all it fate. Call it coincidence. Call it whatever you’d like, but it’s hard to deny that sometimes, the toughest decisions are made for us. This was true for Barbara Umlauf, manager of the Hillside SPCA, Inc. in Pottsville, who was catapulted into her current position because of some serendipitous events and her very big heart. “Any animal from Schuylkill County, we will never say no to — no matter what — because people will dump them,” she said in a recent interview at the shelter. “They will get rid of them. In fact, that was my first hard lesson I learned. We only had eight spaces, it was a real small place. And I said to (a man who was surrendering a dog), could you just give us till the weekend, because maybe we could get a home for it. And

It’s one thing to run a shelter, but quite another to give the animals the space and attention they need to be ready and suitable for adoption. Hillside, which is a no-kill shelter funded entirely on donations, is operated by about 2030 employees and about 20 regular volunteers who give time, energy and he said OK. Well, one night I get a call affection willingly. from the state police.” The dogs, of which there are The dog had been hit by a car, near anywhere from 80-100 at any given time, a road notorious for being a dumping are housed in two different buildings, ground for unwanted pets. with heated floors and free reign of the “So then I made my mind up.” indoor and outdoor closures all day Umlauf said. “I can’t do it. I can’t long. The approximately 250 cats have possibly turn them away.” the same freedom, lounging languidly Fast forward 26 years, and Umlauf on scratching posts and closed-in is still giving animals shelter. She gave porches and, sometimes, on the desk and up teaching to help adopt out a few furry friends when the shelter’s previous windowsill of the office. “We try to make it as nice here as we owners passed away and ended up can, because for a lot of them, this is the staying on board. only home they’re ever going to have.” “I thought, well, this won’t be hard, it’s only eight dogs and 10 cats, and we’ll Umlauf said. Though the amenities Umlauf and her get them homes,” she explained. “Well, dedicated workers offer the animals are here we are, 26 years later. As we were substantial, those amenities cost money. getting them out, they just kept coming Umlauf approximated that the shelter’s in … But it’s really been amazing because of the support of people.” electric bill is $1,000 monthly, while

“We try to make it as nice here as we can, because for a lot of these animals, this is the only home they’re ever going to have.” Hillside SPCA Manager Barbara Umlauf its yearly bills are $20,000 for oil and $45,000 for insurance. “Not only do you have to take care of them, but you have to raise the money to take care of them. So it’s full-time,” she said.


WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2011

Just about every day at Hillside sees a catastrophic event of some sort, whether it involves the rescue of dogs and cats, cows and chickens, birds and rabbits or buffalo and horses. Most of the other animals are transported to sanctuaries specific to their species, but the fact that Hillside has a hand in those kinds of rescues displays just part of the depth of the shelter’s responsibilities. The fact that it is run entirely on donations makes fundraising an absolute necessity, and the shelter has a fundraising committee in place that works hard to come up with a variety of different events “It’s really important that we reach people in so many ways,” said Janine Choplick, a Humane Police Officer and Hillside worker. “Whether it’s education or just remembering that we’re here and that we don’t get funds from the county or the state or anything like that.”

SETTING THE WHEELS IN MOTION

T

Thanks to the efforts and love from Hillside’s workers, many animals who might not have been considered suitable for adoption are now ready to find a new home. Somits explained that the duo isn’t professionally involved in biking — it’s simply a hobby they both enjoy. And riding for a cause they’re both passionate about makes it that much more satisfying. “We’re no Joe Snedekers, we just like to ride bikes,” he said, referring to the WNEP-TV meteorologist who logs hundreds of miles on his annual charity bike ride. “I think it’s hard today, in our economy, to just ask for money. So what we’re constantly trying to do within the organization is try to think of unique ways that people can enjoy fundraising. So Dan and I thought about what we like to do and then how we could use that to our advantage to benefit Hillside.” The contribution that will be made after the bike ride will be added to Joe’s Fund, a special fund in memory of Umlauf’s son, that pays for spaying, neutering and emergency veterinarian care. “If it wasn’t for people like Josh and Dan, we would be lost,” Umlauf said. “I wake up, and I shudder, thinking, what if people don’t help? And nobody appreciates it more than we do. I write thank-you cards consistently. And people say, ‘You don’t have to.’ To me, I want to, because it means so much that people

are helping.” The feeling of respect and appreciation is mutual. “Giving what she has for the last 26 years,” Somits said. “It doesn’t feel like a lot for us to do this over the course of five days, ride our bikes. Yeah, some days suck, some days it’s really hard ... it’s nothing compared to what they give, everyone who works there.” W

any shelters define themselves as “no-kill,” meaning it generally does not euthanize animals unless they are too sick or aggressive to be suitable for adoption. The following is a selection of some area local shelters that employ this strategy, in addition to Hillside SPCA: • Animals Can’t Talk Rescue & Adoption, Inc., East Stroudsburg (animalscanttalk.org) • AWSOM, Stroudsburg (awsomanimals.org) • Blue Chip Farms Animal Refuge, Dallas (bcfanimalrefuge.org) • Camp Papillon Pet Rescue and Adoption, Stroudsburg (camppapillon. org) • Happy Tails No-Kill Animal Shelter, Inc., Towanda (happytailsnkas. petfinder.com) • Kanyon’s Golden Veterinary Care, Brodheadsville (keithcook.biz) • Lycoming Animal Protection Society, South Williamsport (lapsshelter.org) • Mostly Mutts No-Kill Dog Shelter, Sunbury (mostlymuttsonline.com) • Waggin Tails, Brodheadsville (waggintailsrescue.com) W

he inspiring efforts of Umlauf are what piqued the attention of Avoca resident Josh Somits, who adopted his dog, Sally, from the shelter. Somits and his friend Dan Kisacky of Beaver Meadows will launch their Hillside to Seaside Bicycle Tour, departing from the shelter on Saturday, Sept. 17. “I think one of the biggest inspirations to me is Barbara Umlauf,” Somits shared. “I think that’s incredible for someone to give up their entire life and dedicate it to something like that. To me, that is greater than any other type of success, being absolutely selfless, and giving yourself to someone or something, not expecting anything in return.” Somits explained that the approximately 260-mile bike ride, which will end in Lusby, Md., and will take about five days, is a no-frills athletic venture. “Essentially that kind of riding is called bike touring,” he said. “Because you have everything you need. You have some food, you have your camping gear, all of your clothing, and everything is actually on your bike.” Each night of the trip will entail setting up camp, whether it’s at a campground, in the woods or in a Good Samaritan’s backyard, a seemingly unconventional method that comes with the territory. “If it comes down to it, if we see somebody’s house, and they just kind of look like a friendly type of person, we’ll knock on the door and ask them if we can borrow their backyard for a night,” he said.

It came in threes I

nto every crevice, every weak spot, the inquisitive snout went. Seeking any foothold it roamed and moaned its unstoppable power around. Catching a bit of tin here, a full grown, decades-old tree there, it nibbled, wrestled, shoved and ultimately triumphed. Not humble in victory, it shrieked in delight with the voice of thousands of years of domination over the land and sea. Don’t tell me it doesn’t know. It knows. It’s as alive as we are and just waits. People say it sounds like a freight train. That’s pale. Add together a freight train, hundreds of jet engines spooling up to full power, the closest, most hair-raising crack of thunder and every Fourth of July finale you have ever witnessed. Multiply that by fear. You have only an inkling of the sound. Helpless, held in its thrall, you see trees bend more than they should, leaves carpet the ground inches thick, loosened limbs fly like projectiles into the ground. The rain is not falling, it is being fired at you like stinging bullets, non-stop. And the aftermath? We were lucky in the sense that we lived. We had no livestock to be grabbed and flung, no automobiles to replace. We came through better than some and worse than others. The roof is the blue of plastic tarp. The apple and pear trees, older than me by far, are buffets for the deer who can reach the succulent fruit on the very tippy top of the 100 footer without straining their necks. Enjoy, brother and sister, for it will be a long time if ever that fruit comes from our backyard. The power back on, we could see

They say it comes in threes. If so, this track goes earthquake, Irene and Lee. The earthquake rocked me in my easy chair. We felt the wrath of Irene. We shudder to think of the future of those who get to speak the words “inundated by Lee.” to throw out spoiled TV dinners and suspicious smelling milk. They say it comes in threes. If so, this track goes earthquake, Irene and Lee. The earthquake rocked me in my easy chair. We felt the wrath of Irene. We shudder to think of the future of those who get to speak the words “inundated by Lee.” It’s hard to process right now. We reel from circumstance to catastrophe and spend much of it too numbed to take it all in. We move and walk and think like zombies, overstressed, over-informed, overwhelmed. Then, in the midst of a thought, “Let’s pick that up at Kmart” or “Want to go to the Garden Drive-In flea market?,” reality sets in again. “Courage,” Dan Rather once said. It’s as good a message as any. W

Though the plot is tragically sentimental at times, Weiner’s sophisticated and introspective writing takes it to another level.

Jennifer Weiner “Then Came You” Rating: W W W W

Chick-lit with chutzpah By Stephanie DeBalko Weekender Staff Writer

T

PAGE 21

he term “chick-lit” has such a negative connotation. One immediately imagines a lonely spinster reading it, living vicariously through the book’s characters while eating a box of chocolates purchased in conjunction with cat food and a collector’s edition magazine celebrating the royal wedding. Jennifer Weiner, though, has been writing chick-lit since before it was a “thing,” and her most recent book, “Then Came You,” proves that while she may fall into the ranks of the terminally idealistic, her prose carries her a head above the rest. The novel tells the story of four women living in different worlds, Jules Strauss, Annie Barrow, India Bishop and Bettina Croft, whose paths cross thanks to egg donations, surrogacy and failed pregnancies. Jules unwittingly donates her egg to India, who has married a wealthy older man and finds she cannot get pregnant. Annie becomes India’s surrogate, carrying the baby to term even though she has two children and a husband of her own to handle,

and Bettina is India’s new stepdaughter, determined to find out if the new wife is the gold-digger she suspects her to be. Eventually, the women come to know one another and find that the child they all had a hand in creating, Rory, has brought them together. Though the plot is tragically sentimental at times, Weiner’s sophisticated and introspective writing takes it to another level. The chapters are alternately told through first-person narratives of each of the characters, but the reader is still often left to ponder over their motives, especially in India’s case. The women are across the board when it comes to social class, financial status and marital bliss, but the author effortlessly changes voices, imperceptibly using tone and language to differentiate between them. India’s story is the most in-depth and the most disheartening. At first, she comes off as a cold and calculating user, but as the reader gets to know more about her life and her feelings, she becomes more recognizable, more appealing and more likable. All four characters’ lives get messy, but she deals with it in the most realistic and unpleasant way. “Then Came You” examines the challenges associated with balancing what your life really is with how others perceive it. Identity is everything to Jules, Annie, India and Bettina, and the reader gets to see each of them struggle with their feelings, dreams and fears and come to terms with the unsettling changes they undergo. It’s true that the end result is a happy little package all tied up in a bow, with a fairy tale ending in some ways, but that’s what we come to Weiner for in the first place: Real women with real problems, plots that induce record levels of tears and unrealistically happy endings.

MOUNTAIN BLOOD

Mountain Blood stays original

he band Mountain Blood has more than just the surrounding Appalachians through its veins. It also has a strong desire to write songs. In fact, drummer Tim Craig says songwriting began almost instantly once the group was formed. “We had four practices, and then played a benefit,” says Craig. “And it just took off. The magic was there. We’d be playing, and somebody would just start up with three chords, and the next thing you knew, we had a song.” Mountain Blood, based out of the Berwick area, formed in 2010. It also features Kevin Ridall on guitars and vocals, Phil Smith on guitars, bass and vocals and Jason Smith on keyboards, bass, harmonica and mandolin. Craig says that initially, the band began playing parties and offered numbers by acts such as Led Zeppelin, The Doors and Bob Dylan, who he says are also among its biggest influences. He adds that, as a drummer, he was schooled on Grand Funk Railroad. Still, he stresses that writing was the main goal from the get-go. “We knew it was going to be original, right off the bat,” he says. “There wasn’t any work to

it. We’d start an original song and, with just the four of us standing in the room, nothing had to be explained to anybody. It just happened. We’d get done with the song and go, ‘What the hell was that? Write that down. Get a name for that song.’” The band has recorded 15 tracks at Double A Productions in Elysburg. Songs include “Mountain Girl,” “Face The Wave,” “Learning To Let Go” and “Whatever You Need.” They are available at reverbnation.com. Craig says Phil Smith and Ridall are the group’s main lyricists and that he thinks listeners will connect with the music. “They mainly write about life experiences and growing up,” he says. “They’re also really into the beauty of the mountains. It’s almost like a spiritual thing that they do. They really have beauti-

FARLEY ON THE RADIO Former Panacea vocalist Tim Farley will perform Wednesday, Sept. 14, at The Woodlands as part of the Weekender/Mountaingrown Original Music Series. Farley and his band will be performing material from his new solo EP, “A Good Problem To Have.” Showtime is 10-11 p.m., and there is no cover. The performance will also be broadcast live on 102.3-FM The Mountain and at www.102themountain.com. The Weekender/Mountaingrown Original Music Series began in early 2004 and, since 2006, has been held at The Woodlands each month. The next show will take place on Oct. 5 and will feature Eva Katherine. ‘MENU LIVE’ WITH MIZ Four years ago, I first wrote about an artist named Mike Mizwinski. I can recall being impressed with not only his music, but also his candidness. He’d been through a lot in his young life, but he had put it all behind him and was moving forward with his guitar and his pen. Over the years, I’ve gotten to know “Miz,” as he is often called, a little better. We’ve done additional stories about him, he’s performed at the Weekender/Mountaingrown Original Music Series on three occasions, he made two appearances at Concert For A Cause and he’s been a guest on my Sunday night radio show, “Music On The Menu Live,” where we often play his songs. It’s been nice to see his career move forward. On Sunday, Sept. 25, Miz will be swinging by “Music On The Menu Live” again for the whole hour, where we’ll be discussing and playing tracks from his forthcoming CD, “East Hope Avenue,” which will be released on Oct. 1. There’s lots of buzz on this record, and we’ll be the first to play it. Hope you can tune in. W

ALBUM REVIEWS Malkmus not chasing Pavement

In the dozen years after Pavement went on hiatus, singer/ songwriter Stephen Malkmus has remained busy. After assembling a new band (The Jicks), he has released five albums, most recently “Mirror Traffic.” Produced by none other than Beck Hanson, news of this album created a lot of buzz in the alternative-rock world, and it became one of the most anticipated albums of the genre to be released so far this year. As one would expect, “Mirror Traffic” includes many tracks (such as “Tigers,” “Brain Gallop” or “Fall Away”) that have a loose, open feel that make the listener

feel as though he or she could simply float off into the clouds. However, it also has a few songs which are the complete opposite: “Senator,” “Spazz,” and “Tune Grief ” are raw, uptempo and full of power. This variation may be a bit much for some fans, but across the entire album, it gives “Mirror Traffic” a sense of balance. While the musical style may vary from track to track, one constant which does not change is Malkmus’ rather unique lyrical style. Taking on everything from politics to cultural history to mass consumerism, it seems that just

Dangerous “Teenage Rampage” Rating: W W W

Dangerous goes on a R ` ampage' The music of Australian rock outfit Dangerous has a sound that will remind listeners of many 1980s hair bands. Despite its distinct glam-rock feel, the young members of Dangerous formed in 2007, and the band is set to release its debut, “Teenage Rampage,” Sept. 20 via

about everything is fair game. However, at no point on “Mirror Traffic” does Malkmus ever sound like someone who is just rambling or ranting pointlessly. Instead, he sounds like a person who just sees the world much differently than everyone else and is not afraid to tell us about it. In looking at one of Malkmus’ albums, it becomes rather difficult not to draw comparisons to his former band. The fact that “Mirror Traffic” was produced by yet another legend from that period probably makes that even more difficult. However, while much of “Mirror Traffic” has a similar droning, dreamy, ambiguous feel as Pavement’s music did, it also feels more deliberate and designed as opposed to something that just happened to fall together perfectly, which reflects Malkmus’ growth as a songwriter and artist. -- Michael Irwin Weekender Correspondent

Epitaph. The album was recorded by infamous Ulrich Wild, who previously worked with notable bands like Deftones, Breaking Benjamin and Pantera. Even though Dangerous has an older rock vibe, “Teenage Rampage” also has a youthful feel to it. Each of the 12 tracks are energetic and fast paced, making “Teenage Rampage” an appropriate album title. The record embodies chaos and grit and easily conjures images of circle pits and raucous parties. The mayhem ensues right off the bat with the opening track, “Not One Of You.” The lead singer’s voice has a high-pitched quality that is both ear piercing and electrifying. The highenergy track is heavy at times and anthemic. On “Chasing The Girls,” his voice has a storytelling quality to it, yet the song is catchy. In addition to incorporating elements of heavy metal/1980s rock, Dangerous also sounds like a punk band at many points on this release. This band has an overall wildness about it, but it slows it down slightly on “Poppies,” which is definitely a standout. The band is all over at times, but it works. By combining a bunch of different sounds, it has actually managed to create one very unique-sounding album. -- Lisa Schaeffer Weekender Correspondent

Shonen Knife “Osaka Ramones” Rating: W W W W

Ramones get a Japanese twist Instead of releasing a compilation to commemorate its 30th anniversary, Shonen Knife decided to pay homage to one of its favorite bands, The Ramones, via “Osaka Ramones,” which is also the name of the Japanese trio’s tribute to the New York punk rockers. “Blitzkrieg Bop” has the same tempo and feel of the original and is a good

Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks “Mirror Traffic” starting point for the album. “Rock ’n’ Roll High School” is fun, and the chugging “We Want The Airwaves” is an easy standout. “She’s The One” features Ritsuko’s great bassline playing off Emi’s fast-paced cymbals. Clocking in at just about two minutes, “Rockaway Beach” has enough time to make you to want to “hitch a ride” to the Queens neighborhood. Six songs in, singer/guitarist Naoko hands over lead vocals to Ritsuko for the garage-y “Sheena Is A Punk Rocker.” “Psycho Therapy,” too, has a garage-rock feel to it and is another highlight, especially as Naoko declares, “I’m a teenage schizoid/ The one your parents despise.” Emi’s vocals give a tender feel to “The KKK Took My Baby Away” while “We’re A Happy Family” is noisy, with clanging and talking as the music fades out. Naoko’s guitar shines on “Chinese Rock,” which precedes the musical standout, “Beat On The Brat,” which features a fantastic melding of the trio’s drums, guitar and bass. “Pinhead” is a great closer to the 13-song tribute. “Osaka Ramones” is perky and captures the punkiness that made the Ramones who they were — and Shonen Knife an underground favorite of innovators like Kurt Cobain. Joey, Johnny and Dee Dee et al would be proud.

A MEAT COMA WORTH WRITING ABOUT I love discovering new places to eat, and this past weekend was no exception when my boyfriend and I took a drive to Lake Wallenpaupack. For dinner, we found ourselves seated near a window at Gresham’s Chop House (2495 Route 6, Hawley) that overlooked the lake (and the gorgeous sunset over it, too). As luck would have it, prime rib was one of Saturday’s specials and was available in two cuts, king and the slightly smaller queen. We ordered one of each, and eagerly awaited their arrival as we tucked into the bread basket that came with rosemaryinfused olive oil. We also couldn’t pass up a cup of the flavorful chicken dumpling soup, which preceded our side salads. Finally, the main event arrived and looked amazing. Both cuts were tender and cooked perfectly to our liking (“rare as possible” for him, medium rare for myself) and had that crispy, salty, delicious crust that always seems to make prime rib even better. We both chose a baked potato as our side, and the evening’s vegetables were carrots with a hint of maple syrup. As if a delicious meal (and the view) wasn’t enough, the service was top notch as well, making Chop House a great destination for anyone looking to take a nice Sunday drive any day of the W week. Send your food and drink news to nmascali@ theweekender.com or call 570.831.7322.

Ralphie interviews Patrick Stump, who’ll release his solo debut in October.

F

all Out Boy lead singer Patrick Stump has a number of different feelings about his debut solo album, “Soul Punk.” You could count “lucky” as one of them, as in, lucky he isn’t in the limelight as much as his bandmate Pete Wentz. “(Pete) was under the microscope. I’m a tiny bit, but nothing like he has to deal with,” Stump said recently during a sit-down with “The Ralphie Radio Show.” “I think it’s a lot harder for him to make the Black Cards record because from the get-go, not only are expectations wildly out of control, but people’s perspectives on his intentions are wildly out of whack.” All four members of FOB have moved on to other projects, but Stump doesn’t believe that his solo album or any other activities signal the demise of the Chicago pop-punk group. “Fall Out Boy has a lot of fans. They’re still really dedicated. And (‘Soul Punk’) clearly isn’t Fall Out Boy,” Stump said. “That’s been the hardest thing: Getting people comfortable with the idea that I’m just doing this thing on the side, and if this thing takes off, then it’s still considered something parallel to Fall Out Boy.” “Soul Punk,” which was finished about two months ago, comes out Oct. 18. The first single is actually a remix of a cut from the disc: “This City” featuring fellow Chicago native Lupe Fiasco. The idea of a remix came from Stump’s label, Island Records. “(Senior director of marketing) Eric Wong is a friend of mine, and he gave me his list, and he was like, ‘Give me your list,’” Stump recalled. “The top of both of our lists was Lupe.”

“‘Soul Punk’ clearly isn’t Fall Out Boy.” Patrick Stump, on his solo debut

Truth be told, Stump’s entire list was essentially Fiasco, and that’s it. The vocalist admires the emcee, calling him a “superhero.” “There are a lot of rappers, who are really smart and really intellectual, and Lupe fits that bill, but he also knows his way around a pop song,” Stump explained. He cited Fiasco’s “The Show Goes On” as a prime example of this, as the singer said he had never heard a pop song in heavy radio rotation deliver some of the points Lupe made in the track. Still, while Stump would be happy with big spins and sales numbers, those are far from his motivating factors for the album. “When I was doing this record, I was thinking about mortality,” he revealed. “Someday I will either be dead, or I will be someone’s grandpa, and it would be nice to have something, ‘When I was younger, I did this thing.’” By then, who knows if that generation will be able to recognize the now 27 year old. Stump is almost unrecognizable now, as he lost a considerable amount of weight since FOB’s last goaround. “I have a lot more energy,” said Stump of how the loss affected him on stage. “I fret to call it dancing, because I don’t think I’m all that great a dancer, but I do, sort of get to dance.” W Listen to “The Ralphie Radio Show” weeknights from 7 p.m.-midnight on 97 BHT.

movie review

Kate Winslet, above left, and Gwyneth Paltrow star in the viral thriller ‘Contagion.’

A not-so-fearful 'Contagion' “

Contagion,” Steven Soderbergh’s star-studded virusruns-amok drama, never grabs you by the shoulders and gives you a good, old-fashioned fright. You can watch it with your eyes wide open — unless you find stellar ensemble work and directorial polish bone chilling. The origins of the viral horror are benign. Executive Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth Paltrow), coughing and pale, prepares to board her flight home after a business trip to Hong Kong. The same conditions plague a fashion model in London, a Tokyo businessman, and, of course, a Hong Kong waiter. Everyone looks like

they have the flu. Emhoff returns home to Minneapolis, where a few days later she collapses on the kitchen floor, frothing at the mouth and lapsing into seizures. The hospital’s doctor can’t explain her death, but the coroner’s reaction during the autopsy says it all: “Call everyone.” Soon, a no-nonsense investigator (Kate Winslet) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention travels to Minnesota. A World Health Organization official (Marion Cotillard) heads to a Hong Kong casino where Emhoff spent some time. As the

ladies follow leads, attempts to vaccinate the virus prove exceedingly difficult. It’s a model of biological perfection, fitting into cells “like a key into a lock.” In the ensuing weeks, things fall apart. Homeland Security becomes interested. A popular, truth-telling blogger (Jude Law) gets his priorities mixed up. Beth’s widowed husband (Matt Damon) becomes really overprotective of his daughter. People panic. Soderbergh (“Out of Sight,” “Traffic”) handles the material with his usual quiet confidence. The proof is in the cinematography: Winslet opens her hotel window to see a caravan of military vehicles driving down an empty street on a miserable gray morning. The beleaguered CDC deputy director (Laurence Fishburne) sits in a cafeteria, surrounded by empty chairs, overwhelmed by a problem he can’t solve.

Though Soderbergh refuses to pander and remains a consummate craftsman, “Contagion” maintains a certain politeness. Grave red lettering pops up to remind us of the number of days that have passed in this misery. Everyone is clearly working against the clock, but we never feel that tension. The movie proceeds as one long anticlimax. Major plot developments get treated with little fuss as Soderbergh and writer Scott Z. Burns make their points about leadership (the military calls the shots; the president is nowhere to be found), bureaucratic red tape and the common good of people. These messages are fine, but they’re placed too high on the priority list. The movie is about an unstoppable virus killing millions of helpless people. Shouldn’t we feel a little bit scared? An argument could be made

that this kind of restraint is appropriate for a movie released two days before the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11. I don’t buy that. “The Dark Knight” perfectly captured the random terror that comes when a psychopath gains power over a major city. “V for Vendetta,” released in the middle of George W. Bush’s second term, explored the horror of an overprotective government. And there was “The Road” and “Team America: World Police” and more. One of the great artistic triumphs post-Sept. 11 is that filmmakers have used that uncertainty to create excellent movies that help us come to terms with those feelings. Soderbergh has offered an entertaining, well-acted cop out. Read more of Pete’s musings at whatpeteswatching. blogspot.com.

All city officials, Fire Dept., Police, Ambulance and Rescue Workers, FEMA and Red Cross employees and anyone else who helped us avert disaster please enjoy dining at a 25% discount till September 28. 10 P.M.

elcome to the inaugural edition of Bitch & Brag. Each week, we hope to bring you something positive you can feel good about and, of course, something that just plain sucks. Most of the time, we want to focus on local stuff, and since there was nothing more important to all of us than last week’s flood, we felt it would be best to begin with some bitchin’ and some braggin’ about the flood of 2011.

Amanda’s Brags: Many of us watched the flooding and devastation with a feeling of helplessness. Families and businesses lost everything they had and worked for in the matter of hours, and I know I personally watched on thinking, “What can I possibly do to help this horrific situation?” KRZ and our entire Entercom Communications family responded to that empty feeling by putting together Entercom Cares, a flood-relief drive that ran all weekend long to support the local chapters of the American Red Cross. This week, I’m choosing to brag about the residents of NEPA and the overwhelming generosity you’ve shown and produced in reaction to the devastation our area suffered this past week. You came through in ways unimaginable during our flood-relief drive. Over this past weekend, more than $17,000 in cash donations and more than $200,000 in cleaning supplies was raised to support flood victims, and everything you donated is staying local. I’ve now witnessed the “Valley with a Heart” in action. The outpouring of love, quick response to support and compassion the people of NEPA showed in reaction to the flooding is brag-worthy and is really what makes NEPA a kick-ass place to call home.

Bart and Urby’s would like to show thanks to all WilkesBarre emergency and flood workers by offering them a 25% discount for the next 2 weeks of disaster recovery!

Last week’s flooding brought out a lot of good — and an equal amount of bad — in NEPA residents. Children donated their allowances, families who were victims themselves donated supplies and money because they knew other people had suffered worse, and together as a community, we filled four huge box trucks full of supplies. Way to go NEPA! Jeff’s Bitches: So as thousands of people living near the Susquehanna River had to flee their homes last week, Luzerne County ordered a 9 p.m. curfew to hopefully discourage looting. Sadly, there were a few punks who apparently decided to go “pick up a few items.” Sure, kick a person when they’re down! These people are

running for their lives, so you decide you’ll “take” their bigscreen TV! Gee, why don’t you creeps go drop-kick a few elderly people on Public Square and grab their money, too! Because, essentially, that’s what you’re doing: attacking innocent people when they’re at their most vulnerable. I spoke with one woman whose house was almost vandalized in broad daylight! These derelicts were too dumb to even wait for nightfall! I hope when they’re sentenced, it’s not for simple larceny. There should be some extra-harsh punishment for stealing from people who are trying to save the lives of their family. And you know, there is going to be a massive cleanup necessary in the weeks ahead. Rather than let these losers pick up trash on the highway, I say let’s put them to work cleaning those areas where raw sewage is leaking into the river.

WHO IS... MATT MORGIS

WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2011

Who is... Matt Morgis Mountain Top

Community involvement: Luckily, working at the papers has kept me super involved around town. I’m always involved with the local music scene helping advance shows and bands to the next level. I volunteered at Junior Achievement building to help kids “work” at a newspaper for the day, and I’ve assisted with the planning of numerous charity events. Hobbies: I love watching college football and my beloved Red Sox. You can also find me skiing and attending concerts whenever possible. Favorite quote: “You have enemies? Good. That means you stood up for something, sometime in your life.” Winston Churchill. Claim to fame: Almost every Taylor Swift song is about me, well, the ones where she sings about falling in love at least. Favorite thing about the area: The sense of community it offers you. It seems like everyone knows everyone, you never feel lost or out of place. Favorite movie: Toss up between “Fever Pitch” and “Anchorman.” One thing most people don’t know about me: I’m a huge technology nerd. I love getting to use new gadgets, and I actually read tech blogs like Mashable every night before I fall asleep. One thing I’ve always wanted to do: Participate in all sorts of extreme sports in New Zealand. The four kids from “Rocket Power” did that in one episode, and I’ve been jealous ever since. If your best friend were to describe you, what would he/she say? That a mix of determined, outgoing, cheerful, hungry, creative, enthused, positive and a little bit of crazy makes up Matt.

Giving the gift of Christmas

Congratulations to the Impact Wrestling World Tour ticket winners!

T

his past weekend saw record-breaking flood levels and so many people who lost so much. My own family was hit by the disaster in Bloomsburg. “Well, there will be a lot less for this Christmas,” my sister, Sue Berlin, commented. I’m sure that sentiment is shared by many people. Who can even think of Christmas when there is so much cleaning up to do right now? What I have seen in the past few days is an overwhelming outpouring of care and concern for our neighbors. People opened their homes to evacuees, volunteers helped to deliver supplies and so many other wonderful expressions of kindness in a time of great despair and fear. Following on the heels of this will be the 4th Annual Bikes for Tykes Poker Run sponsored by the Wyoming Valley Motorcycle Club (WVMC). For the past three years, this run has bought bicycles for underprivileged children in the Wyoming Valley. This year, I expect that there will be many more youngsters who won’t be expecting much under their tree. Last year, close to 50 bikes were delivered to needy children thanks to the approximately 170 riders. This year, we need a lot more riders willing to give up a morning for the Sunday, Sept. 18 ride, plus a donation of $15 per rider and $10 per passenger. This poker run is in memory of WVMC member “Big George” Thompson, who was noted for his heart of gold and always helping kids. I’m sure that if he were still here with us, he’d be out there working with all of the other scores of volunteers out there now. And this poker run is one event that guarantees that at least some small number of children will have a smile on their faces on Christmas morning. Registration for Sunday’s ride is from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The

Pennsylvania Ave., WilkesBarre) and stops at Murphy’s Pub (347 Slocum St., Swoyersville), Joey’s Joint (59 Plymouth Street, Edwardsville), Tommy Boy’s Bar & Grill (10 Broadway St., Nanticoke) before ending at Good Fellos Food & Spirits (1901 Route 315, Pittston). At the end of the run, there will be a cash bar, drink specials, hors d’oeuvres, a 50/50 drawing and live music from Better with Beer. Hopefully we’ve had enough rain, and the day will be bright, warm and great for riding. There may be some adjustments to the routes you are used to taking because of flood damage. If there are any changes of note, they will be made at the registration point. I know that bikers

have the biggest and softest hearts of all, so a little road detour won’t keep you away! The more bikes that show up for the ride, the more bikes can be delivered to the children of the Wyoming Valley. So please consider riding in this poker run on Sunday. Many people are looking for ways to help out doing the cleanup from the recent flood and evacuation. There are many organizations working diligently to help the residents of this area that are looking for volunteers and supplies, so you may not know how to help. Please consider contacting the Red Cross. Its webpage lists Wayne Wolfe, director of staffing and volunteer services, as a contact. He can be reached at 570.823.7161, ext. 324 or wolfew@usa.redcross.org. W

s soon as Labor Day hits, there’s this instant moment of depression that summer is officially over. It isn’t, really, but for most people, this is the time when bathing suits get packed away, school supplies are already bought in surplus and even the question of covering patio furniture and storing all the barbeque supplies comes into play. For non-sun lovers, it can be a time to rejoice, but for many, a more sluggish realization that playing horseshoes in the backyard and splashing around in the pool can set in and a little gray cloud appears over a once-happy disposition. Personally, I embrace the changing of the weather.

Special to the Weekender

sorry mom & dad By Justin Brown

Weekender Correspondent

This is Justin’s 50th apology to his mom & dad.

1965 CHEVROLET IMPALA SS HARDTOP COUPE

Engine: 8-cylinder

Owner:

Matt Hannon of Wilkes-Barre

PAGE 54

“This is a great car, I’m proud to own it,” says Hannon, who bought the Impala about 10 years ago and set about restoring it. “I repainted it, kept it red like it was originally, but made it a little brighter. “It blows my mind that new, this car sold for just $2,800. It’s worth much more than that now. I’m the fourth owner. I love taking it out to car shows and cruises.” W

Apology No. 50 O

ne thing I’ve learned from being a college student for nearly a decade is that attending class is a lot like visiting Planned Parenthood. You have the choice. Another choice you have is deciding how to handle the situation of finding your roommate in the act of sex on your air mattress. Call me crazy, or call me a genius, but when that happened to me, I decided to report him to the police. It was the summer of 2008, and I was about to discover that if your first two matches from Roommate.com weren’t bat-shitcrazy Neanderthals, then the third time was the charm. My new apartment was leased to Young, an aspiring Korean actor self-referred to as “Young Hollywood.” When his main role became substance abuse, he started bringing in roommates to cover the rent money that he put up his nose. Once his drug habit got out of control, he stopped paying rent in general. By this point, his two-bedroom apartment consisted of him, a middle-aged army vet, an illegal immigrant, a UCLA athlete, a teenage runaway and me. Though my new roommates had the potential to fill a season of Dr. Drew’s “Celebrity Rehab,” they were people to party with. One night, my roommates joined me and a few friends for a night of barhopping. However,

the illegal immigrant decided to stay back with the teenage runaway who couldn’t get into the bars. I thought catching a lobster in a claw machine at a dive bar was about to be the most eventful part of my evening. I was mistaken. I walked in my bedroom to find the immigrant having sex with the runaway — on my air mattress! “Get out of my bed!” I screamed at the immigrant. “No, you get out, or I’ll knock you out!” he barked at me for interrupting his dance to the horizontal bop. Young, stupid, and Lindsay Lohan drunk, I thought the solution to this predicament was to press charges. “My roommate is having sex on my air mattress and won’t get out,” I reported to the police over the phone, ready to file a report. “Sir, is this a prank phone call?” I was asked. “I’m serious! I have an illegal immigrant having sex on my air mattress. Arrest and deport him now!” They didn’t believe me and hung up. Afraid I was about to get arrested for making the phone call, I called a cab to retract myself from the scene. The next thing I knew, I woke up in a McDonald’s with a headache. Sorry, Mom & Dad ... W


By Caeriel Crestin

Weekender Correspondent VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Unless you’re especially enlightened, letting yourself trust others gets harder every time your trust is broken. That, of course, is hardly fair to the new people in your life, since they have nothing to do with those who deceived you. But fairness is irrelevant. Your heart’s a muscle (both literally and figuratively), and the only way it can become strong and flexible enough to fully recover from a beating is practice and intention. You need to force yourself to trust anyway, despite your trepidation. Yes, you’ll probably get burned again, but that’s better than rejecting someone who’s worthy of your trust because you were too scared to offer it. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Paying tribute to someone’s past, for helping shape them into the person you love, is a sweet thing to do, especially if the experiences that built their character were painful or difficult. However, no one wants to dwell overmuch on their traumatic history. I think almost anyone would appreciate your acceptance and recognition, but also be relieved when you return to the present moment, so don’t linger. What you want to convey is that the past matters — but not nearly as much as the present moment. And for that, a very brief visit will do. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) Life goes on. Things never really end until you die, even if you think of them as finished. What’s actually happened is that they’ve changed. If you can learn to view them as different (perhaps in dramatic, fundamental ways) from what they were, rather than simply over, you may realize that there’s stuff worth salvaging or recycling from those past chapters which would significantly add to the quality of your life or overall happiness. That’s not to say every closed chapter should be revisited — some aren’t worth dusting off and resurrecting, at this point. But the last couple, at least, you should consider.

elementary school, standing up to a bully is the best way to negate their power (or at least the first step). CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) People want what they want, and you can’t change that. You can get those who care about you to pretend to want stuff they don’t, in order to please you, or do stuff they’re not crazy about. Be careful how far you push this, though. This is a slippery slope into Resentmentville, and you really don’t want to go there. Every relationship has obligations. However, for the happiness and longevity of yours, you should be extremely picky about when and how you call in this type of favor. Chill out and fly solo when necessary, so that when you come back to the nest, it’s not empty. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Everyone has flaws. Ideally you’d find someone (or several someones) whose flaws don’t bother you all that much, but it’s pretty unlikely. Learning to live with and actually love someone despite their shortcomings is part of how you’ll get them to do the same for you (because you, my dear, are no exception!). This week, consider all the sterling qualities possessed by those around you, even if they’ve recently been eclipsed by a few glaring faults. I think, if you’re fair and considerate about it, you’ll discover that all the good stuff far outweighs the bad — and living with the whole package may be a better deal than you thought at first. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) It sucks when someone else makes a mess and then leaves you to clean it up,

especially without asking if that’s OK (probably because they know it’s not). Instead of harping on about the injustice of it all, which will only piss you off more and get you exactly nowhere, I suggest rolling up your sleeves and fixing this disaster as soon as humanly possible. Yes, it’ll suck, but the sooner you can get it out of your sight, the sooner you’ll be able to move on to actually fun stuff and forget about all this — something that’s simply impossible until it’s gone. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) When people make it needlessly difficult for you to do a good deed, I can understand your temptation to just say, “Forget it,” and walk away. Since these knuckleheads (who may, after all, only be doing their (lame) jobs) aren’t the ones who’ll suffer without your aid, I hope you push through your frustration and jump through their stupid hoops. Feel free, however, to let all involved know what a pain in the ass it is, and how putting up barriers to altruism isn’t particularly smart. I doubt they’ll respond well to you, so don’t expect it to change anything now. However, they may just reconsider how they address future do-gooders who come along — and then you’ll have done two good deeds. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) It’s nice to give someone a warning about a mistake they’re making (or about to), but don’t be too shocked if you discover they’re fully aware of the situation, and making their choices with eyes wide open. People are occasionally self-destructive, addicted to risk or willfully naïve, and in all of these

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Normally, when you have a problem with someone, I’d suggest going directly to them first, even if it’s harder or more awkward. However, when someone’s grip on rationality and reason isn’t particularly secure, you may have no choice but to go over their head with your difficulties, so they can be addressed without putting a target on your back. Don’t take this cowardly back route unless you’re quite certain it’s necessary, though. However, if you have ample evidence that any attempt at a logical discussion will only make things worse, than do what you’ve got to do. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) I can understand how you might envy one of those people who’s able to keep calm, cool and collected in the midst of circumstances that would have you hysterical, in tears or pulling your hair (or all three). Having such powerful emotions can be a pain in the ass. I don’t think finding ways to suppress or ignore them is the answer, though — remember, they’re a source of strength, beauty and compassion for you, even if they also screw up situations, embarrass you or simply make things awkward. Every Crab must find his or her own way to navigate life with these massive feelings — without denying or hiding them. This is a never-ending process, but you should have ample opportunity to make significant strides towards a more balanced place this week. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Sure, trusting your gut has totally screwed you over or gotten you into trouble in the past. Your instincts are just plain wrong, on occasion. But try to remember how secondguessing them has gotten you into many more scrapes and scuffles than trusting them ever could. Yes, your intuition will be completely off-base on occasion. It happens. Throwing out such a powerful tool because of a couple errors would be incredibly foolish, though, especially this week. Trust your gut no matter what. And as for the screw-ups? Simply write them off as par for the course. W To contact Caeriel, e-mail sign.language.astrology@gmail.com.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Bullies don’t just disappear once they graduate from high school. Some grow up and evolve, but others learn how to disguise their bullying in ever more devious and subtle ways. That doesn’t change what it is, though. Sometimes, as when they’ve acquired real authority (becoming a cop, for example), you may have to bite your tongue and take it, to some extent. However, that’s not the case here. You must reject their shitty power play by calling it what it is. It may not be quite so simple, but just like in

TYLER PERRY September 14, 1969 PRINCE HARRY September 15 1984 AMY POEHLER (pictured) September 16 1971 KYLE CHANDLER September 17 1965 AISHA TYLER September 18 1970 ALISON SWEENEY September 19 1976 SOPHIA LOREN September 20 1934

cases your intervention, while possibly appreciated, isn’t likely to change their behavior right now. Don’t take it personally. Even though it’s hard for you to understand their decisions, it’s also not your call. The only thing you get to decide is whether or not you’ll stick around; the rest is purely their business.
