Letter from the editor

Wednesday, Oct. 5 marks the second installment of the Weekender/98.5 KRZ Flood Victims Benefit Concerts Series. The series kicked off last week at Brews Brothers West in Luzerne and will be held this week at Bar Louie inside Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs (1280 Route 315, Plains Twp.) On the bill for the show, which starts at 8 p.m., is Hostile Authority, Destination West, Pop Rox and Graces Downfall. There is a $10 donation and all proceeds benefit the Wyoming Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross to help people who have been affected by September’s devastating flood. As Amy George, the chapter’s development coordinator of annual and planned giving, told me last week, monetary donations are best because “that’ll allow us to buy items in bulk.” But you can still donate cleaning supplies or the much-needed personal hygiene products. Next week’s benefit will be at The Woodlands (1073 Route 315, Plains Twp.) with M80, Stealing Neil, Lemongelli and Tommy Guns Band. As for this week’s issue, you’ll find some pages full of our past Models and Men of the Week (starting on p. 44), as part of our annual Model of the Year issue. You can vote online for your favorites now at theweekender.com or come to the Woodlands

social

Friday, Oct. 7 from 10-11 p.m. to cast your vote in person at the party. Ralphie Aversa, of 97 BHT (and “The Ralphie Report,” which you can find on p. 33) will announce the winners at midnight. In “Music on the Menu,” (p. 34), Alan K. Stout writes about Rock Against Diabetes, which will be held Monday, Oct. 9 at Kildare’s (119 Jefferson Ave., Scranton). Not only will the event feature six local bands, but it hopes to raise money and awareness for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation — and help fund the development of a local social network for children with diabetes, something you’ll realize is needed after you read this story. That’s just a sampling of what you can find in this first issue of October. Thanks for reading — and hope to see you out this week! Nikki M. Mascali Weekender Editor

WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2011


By Chuck Shepherd Weekender Wire Services

Two women were charged in September with what was likely a major art theft for Johnson City, Tenn. Connie Sumlin, 45, and Gail Johnson, 58, were identified from surveillance video as the ones who snatched two pieces of art off the wall in the entrance of a local Arby’s restaurant (a picture of some pears, and a metal art object, with an alleged combined value, according to the police report, of “$1,200”). THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE An option for suicide “with elegance and euphoria” is how Lithuanian-born Ph.D. candidate Julijonas Urbonas (London’s Royal College of Art) described his “Euthanasia (Roller) Coaster,” currently on the drawing board. Urbonas’ model of “gravitational aesthetics” would be a third-milelong, 1,600-foot-high thrill ride engineered to supply 10 Gs of centrifugal force (a spin at about 220 mph) to induce cerebral hypoxia, forcing blood away from the head and denying oxygen to the brain. Euphoria (and disorientation and anxiety, but not pain) are likely states to precede the brain’s shutdown. Urbonas insisted that users would have the option through the first two minutes of the three-minute ride to rethink their decision and bail out (or else to push the final “FALL” button). (Suicide is legal in four European countries and Oregon and Washington.) NEWS THAT SOUNDS LIKE A JOKE The convenience store clerk, Ms. Falguni Patel, was giving testimony in the September trial of Morgan Armstrong (charged with robbing her in Hudson, Fla., in 2009) when she began shaking and then passed out while seated in the witness box. A relative of Patel’s approached, removed her sneaker and held it to Patel’s face, without success. The relative explained that Patel was subject to such blackouts and that sniffing the sneaker often revives her. (After paramedics attended to her, Patel took the rest of the day off and went back to court the next morning.)

DermDox is conducting a research study to compare an investigational topical gel with an already marketed topical gel and a placebo.

GREAT ART! -- Although Moroccan artist

Mehdi-Georges Lahlou, 27, concedes that photographs can be misinterpreted, he maintains on his website that he never wants to hurt people’s feelings. Nevertheless, he said he is proud of his photo exhibit in which he stands completely nude, allowing various verses of the Quran to be projected on his skin. His latest scheduled appearance was at an art fair in Marrakesh in October. -- Earlier this year, Marion Laval-Jeantet won a notable Prix Ars Electronica award for her “hybrid” work that, she said, intends to blur the boundaries between species. Laval-Jeantet stepped onstage in Ljubljana, Slovenia, as a horse-human, having earlier injected herself with horse blood (after prepping her body for several months with different horse immunoglobulins). She also walked with stilts that had “hooves” affixed to the bottom. She capped the show by extracting some of her own presumably-hybrid blood, to be frozen and stored for future research. FETISHES ON PARADE Indecent-exposure flashers appear to be invading even offlimits sanctuaries in their quest to be seen — in Florida, anyway. In Sarasota County in September, Shane Wheatley, 31, was arrested after a Comcast cable customer complained that Wheatley had begun fondling himself while installing the woman’s TV service. Three days earlier, in Niceville, a 14-year-old boy (whose name was not released) was charged with indecent exposure after a worshipper reported him masturbating openly during services at the First United Methodist Church. The boy admitted he had done the same thing during services the week before because he was “bored.”

LEAST COMPETENT CRIMINALS In September, a jury found Terry Newman, 25, and an associate guilty of aggravated assault for a home invasion in San Antonio in 2009, thus adding insult to Newman’s injuries. Newman was shot by a resident during the initial invasion, and then again by another resident when he returned 15 minutes later to retrieve his car. Finally, after police encountered Newman following a short chase, he resisted officers and was shot again, for the third time. (None of the injuries was life-threatening.) (VERY) UNDIGNIFIED DEATH An inquest in Yorkshire, England, in September found that the February death of Brian Depledge, 38, was accidental — that he had inadvertently strangled himself after falling onto a folding clothes horse (of the kind often used to hang recently washed laundry on to dry). The coroner concluded that Depledge’s body had become trapped between rungs in such a way that the more he moved his arms to extricate himself, the tighter was the pressure that was unavoidably placed on his neck. A NEWS OF THE WEIRD CLASSIC (FEBRUARY 2007) After Emmalee Bauer, 25, was fired by the Sheraton hotel company in late 2006, she sought unemployment compensation under Iowa law that affords benefits to employees terminated through no fault of their own. However, the judge decided Bauer did not qualify. She had written a 300-page journal, during office hours, describing in detail her efforts to avoid work. Among her entries: “This typing thing seems to be doing the trick. It just looks like I am hard at work on something,” and “Once lunch is over, I will come right back to writing to piddle away the rest of the afternoon,” and “Accomplishment is overrated, anyway.” W Handy addresses: NewsoftheWeird.blogspot.com, WeirdUniverse.net, WeirdNews@earthlink.net, NewsoftheWeird.com and P.O.

t’s safe to say that the state of the world today pisses a lot of people off, and musicians are no different. Some, like Bono, are in a position to help instigate change on a larger scale, while others do what they can with what they have. Like talk about 2012 presidential candidate Ron Paul while driving a van full of sleeping bandmates to Iowa, as Molotov Solution’s vocalist Nick Arthur did — hands free — with the Weekender last week. The Las Vegas-based deathcore band will release its new album, “Insurrection” Oct. 25 and will perform at Eleanor Rigby’s in Jermyn Wednesday, Oct. 5 with The Devastated and Fit For An Autopsy. Despite its searing guitar, sinister sounds and screaming vocals, there is a melodic feel to the album, which is the first with new members Richie Gomez (guitar), Shane Slade (bass) and Jacob

Durrett (drummer). The band is rounded out by guitarist Robbie Pina, the only original member since its 2004 inception. “Insurrection’s” inspiration came from a place many can relate to. “Just how kind of upset we are, I guess, with the way things are going within the world and our own political systems,” Arthur

shared. “We’re basically saying it’s time for a change. Our previous records pointed out a lot of flaws and a lot of the screwy things that were going wrong with society and our government; this record is more of a call for change rather than pointing fingers.” For the band, this new outlook made Paul an easy candidate to

Las Vegas’ Molotov Solution will release its new album Oct. 25.

Molotov Solution / The Devastated / Fit For An Autopsy: Wed., Oct. 5, 7 p.m., Eleanor Rigby’s (603 Route 6, Jermyn). Tickets: $10-$12 via ticketfly.com, at door. Info: myspace.com/molotovsolution

tution, rather than erasing it, getting rid of the Bill of Rights and all of our freedoms, he’s fighting for that.” In addition to taking inspiration from Paul and the state of the world, Arthur, who does “90 percent” of lyric writing, was influenced by bands like Bury Your Dead, The Acacia Strain and Thrice. “I’m a huge, huge Thrice fan,” he said. “That’s the band that started my evolution into metal and hardcore.” His style of singing takes some toll on his vocals, so Arthur does a warm-up routine before each show. “My voice is kinda going out a little bit right now,” he confessed, “but when we jump into a tour like we did with this one, and I don’t get a lot of practice in, my voice kind of goes away a little bit at the beginning, but then it rebuilds its strength.” W

That’s basically the No. 1 thing, and he’s against that and wants to end it, among other things. “He’s a constitutionalist, he wants to stick tight to the Consti-

Artist Lou Rogai

Rogai, who attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City on a scholarship and Brooklyn College CUNY before Pratt, noted that his art isn’t something he can force. There needs to be a catalyst. “A lot has to do with events that happen in my lifetime,” he explained. “That’s why the paintings don’t come as often as I would like them to arrive.” For example, he’s recently experienced a surge of motivation thanks to the upcoming show. “I have two more ideas to paint,” Rogai said. “The empty wall was an incentive, because I had an idea, but once I realized the walls were going to be empty, I said, ‘I don’t want to stare at (them) for a month.’” Rogai loved his time in school, especially at Pratt, where he was provided with a studio space since his large canvasses were tough to work with in his tiny Brooklyn apartment. But after graduating and with three children (he also has a daughter) to care for, he found a job loading trailers in a grocery warehouse. “So that’s mostly the reason, I

guess, I was not pursuing the art 100 percent,” he said. “I was just trying to make a living and provide for my family. Once in a while, I’d do a canvas.” Rogai did use art as a form of livelihood, accepting a job about a year later teaching painting, drawing and photography to elementary, junior high and high school students, which brought him to NEPA. He taught for 36 years in Sullivan County, N.Y., but his painting has always been more personal. “I’ve had people approach me to do commissions, and I just told them, I don’t do commissions,” he said. “I wouldn’t make something that someone else wanted the way they wanted it — I just do it for myself.” W Louis Rogai’s “Selected Works: 1972-Present:” Oct. 6-29. Opening reception Fri., Oct. 7, 6-9 p.m., AFA Gallery (514 Lackawanna Ave., Scranton). Info: louisrogai.com, 570.969.1040 or Artistsforart.com

ost artists don’t choose the profession because they’re money hungry or under the misconception that it’s a steady job. Most do it because they have to. They feel it in their souls. They don’t know how not to create. That seems to have been the case for Lou Rogai, an artist who juggled family, work and school in the pursuit of his passion. “I always knew that no matter what happened in my life, I would always paint,” Rogai said in a phone interview from his home in Wayne County. Mild-mannered and polite — shy, even — Rogai, not to be confused with his musician son of the same name, seems to save his ferocity for the canvas. Bold color and sharp angles create an impactful presence in acrylic that will be on display in a show titled “Selected Works: 1972-Present” at the AFA Gallery in Scranton Oct. 6-29 with an opening reception Friday, Oct. 7 from 6-9 p.m. The last time Rogai had a showing was in 1974 at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn where he received his master’s in painting and sculpture on a fellowship the same year. The pieces in the AFA show are a collection of his favorites, eight of which came straight from the walls of his home and the rest from the homes of his two sons.

“A lot has to do with events that happen in my lifetime. That’s why the paintings don’t come as often as I would like them to arrive.”

‘Flying Sweden’ is one of many free games available at udevgames.com, which encourages developers to create games for Macintosh.

They dev, you vote

or as much love as the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch get from the gaming industry and the people who play games on these devices every day, it’s hard to believe that the humble Macintosh still doesn’t quite get the support it deserves. Even with some of the amazing titles that have come out for the Macintosh, it’s very often ignored by developers. As the go-to place for game developers to gather and share knowledge, content and assets along with discussing new ideas, iDevGames.com established the uDevGames contest in 2001 to encourage developers to create games for the Macintosh platform. The contest serves the dual purpose of recognizing the best and brightest developers within the community (even offering them a chance to win valuable prizes in addition to the exposure they’ll be getting) while building up a library of games for Mac gamers to enjoy. It’s a way of saying that there are, in fact, plenty of great games for the Macintosh by coaxing them into existence. And the best part is, it’s all free! The rules of the contest are rather simple, but they show off

just how crazy this whole thing is. For example, entrants are given only three months to design their idea, turn it into a game and polish it up for the public to play. This includes all coding, graphics and sound. Once the deadline arrives, the game is published and out the door as is. No patch updates or re-release versions to save a troubled game and give it a second chance here. It’s got be good enough the first time around. This year, users who register with the site will have until Oct. 14 to play each game and vote on their favorite. However, you don’t have to be registered just to download and play the games, and they will be available long after the contest is over. Categories range from Best Overall Game to Best Graphics, Best Gameplay, Best Audio, Best Story, Most Original and Most Polished. Prizes will be distributed to the developers of the top three entries for Best Overall Game and in each category. Anyone can enter the contest. Professionals, experts and beginners are all welcome. And it’s not like you have to be a Mac user yourself to enter the contest, either. As long as you can produce an original game that can be

downloaded to a Mac and doubleclicked within the time allotted, your entry will be accepted and eligible to win. This year’s event has 16 entries that cover a wide range of genres. There’s a first-person adventure/ puzzle game, a real-time strategy game, a classically-inspired roleplaying game, an arcade brawler, a platform game, a dungeon crawler, a puzzle game, a shooter, a word game and many more. In other words, just about something for every kind of gamer out there. As you might suspect, some of the games are in rough shape, but as long as you can appreciate the amount of work that goes into developing an entire game in only three months, you might just find a few games you enjoy very much, despite their looks. So far, my two favorites are “Kung Fu Killers,” an arcade “beat ’em up,” and “Flying Sweden,” a highly unusual strategy/ action game that are each a lot of fun. If you’re a Mac user and have been looking for some new games to play, head over to udevgames.com/entries and try out as many as you like. Just don’t forget to register to vote before the contest ends on Oct. 14. Instructions are on the website. W

n Erin Morgenstern’s debut novel, “The Night Circus,” imagery reigns supreme in a world of night, magic and dreams. From the very beginning, the story has a way of pulling the reader in — immersing them into a place where they watch the performers in awe. But let it be known, this circus is like no other. “The towering tents are striped in white and black, no golds and crimsons to be seen. No color at all, save for the neighboring trees and the grass of the surrounding fields. Black-and-white stripes on a grey sky.” Readers follow the lives of two magicians, Celia and Marco, under the big top. With candid descriptions, Morgenstern creates a fantastical world around readers, inviting them to come one and come all. Intriguing and engaging all at the same time — this book takes us through the sights and sounds

Come one, come all

of a traveling circus, as well as the lives behind it. The story takes place in the late 19th century when the art of theater is still widely popular. However, Morgenstern incorporates different time periods throughout the novel, which can seem unwieldy but she manages to complete in a seamless manner. The protagonists, Celia and Marco are as individual as their talents. Though both possess the magic of wonderment, the two characters are often pinned against each other to feed into a rivalry that is Le Cirque de Reves. The source of disagreement between the magicians is largely due to differing beliefs. While one believes magic is an art, something that is a part of us, the other believes magic can be taught. Through the sequencing of the chapters, readers gain insight into the characters as we follow them separately and in concurrence. But, between dark secrets and animosity, a love story manages to find its way into the novel — one that is not easily forgotten even in the final pages. The novel conveys imagination for readers who have long since forgotten the magic of their childhood in a place that “opens at nightfall and closes at dawn.” Specifically, the novel is Morgenstern’s success in being able to bring forth a fairytale for adults. Stylistically, even considering the magical nature of the circus, Morgenstern writes in a detailed and succinct manner — rarely ever boring the reader with superfluous descriptions, but instead, embracing her eccentricity as a writer. Morgenstern’s storytelling is both a gift and a curse for the reader. Certainly while “The Night Circus” was a brilliant debut, fans will find it hard not to grow impatient for what she may have up her sleeve next.

By Mike Sullivan

Weekender Correspondent

Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig as Will and Libby Atenton in ‘Dream House.’

An unintentionally funny thriller I t’s easy to see why all of the ladies love Daniel Craig. He’s British, which means he’s automatically more sophisticated than any American man, but he also has the scary brooding intensity of a dangerously unhinged drifter. Craig is like Colin Firth crossed with your abusive, alcoholic, absentee father. He’s like Ted Bundy minus all of the murdering but with more-defined pecs. He’s sexy, but in a way that makes you want to lock your doors and hide in the cellar. Yet Craig’s smoldering but vaguely unsettling quality limits

him artistically. There are some roles he should never attempt to play such as a beloved schoolteacher, Santa Claus or anyone who wouldn’t strangle anything while shirtless. Craig’s lack of versatility is essentially one of the many problems that plague the goofy yet oddly entertaining “Dream House.” Craig simply doesn’t have the warmth or playfulness to portray a caring family man, and the scenes where he’s flirting with his wife or clowning around with his kids alternate between unintentional hilarity and unsettling creepi-

ness. In “Dream House,” Craig plays the awkwardly named Will Atenton, a publisher who retires from his job and moves into a new home with his family. As Will adjusts to his new surroundings, a shocking secret is revealed: The previous residents were murdered by a man named Peter Ward. Even more disturbing, Peter has just been released from a five-year stint in a mental asylum and has been seen skulking around outside of Will’s titular dream house. But who is Peter Ward, really? And

why does everyone just sort of walk away from Will whenever he asks about the previous residents? And most importantly, what the hell is up with that scene where Will just notices that one room in his basement is where Gothic kids hang out and smoke clove cigarettes? Really? He just notices that room for the first time? What? Did he buy the house with his eyes closed? How could he not know that room was there? Jeepers H. Creepers! If you couldn’t already guess, “Dream House” is driven by not one but two very dopey and illogical twists — twists so sloppily executed they raise more questions than answers. Like any M. Night Shyamalan movie that isn’t “The Sixth Sense,” “Dream House’s” “world-turned-upsidedown premise” is unconvincing and makes very little sense even under the most cursory observations. But unlike Shyamalan’s painfully self-important turds, “Dream House” is so unbelievably dumb and unpretentious

that it’s actually kind of fun. There’s a lot to laugh at, from the unlikely meaning behind Will’s full name to the cockeyed Hitler-esque toupee that kind of hovers above Craig’s head to Rachel Weisz’s continued insistence on speaking with a shaky American accent in every movie she appears in. Could somebody please sit her down and calmly explain to her that she isn’t fooling anybody? She sounds like someone from the Midwest trying to imitate someone from the South while speaking through a yawn. Stop encouraging her, Hollywood! Ill-conceived and more than just a little silly, “Dream House” tries and fails to blow your mind. But with that said, “Dream House” does succeed as a genuine object of kitsch and is highly recommended for anyone who ever wanted to hear a clearly uncomfortable James Bond say, “Did you pee your pants? Did you pee your pants?” in a strained cutesy voice.

Wolverine gets R ` eal' By Amy Longsdorf

Niro and Hilary Swank has stepped into the ring. Jackman thinks he knows why boxing is so popular with filmmakers. “Dramatically, it’s such a perfect scenario,” he notes. “You have a very confined space and clear delineations of victor and vanquished. You probably have the greatest test there is for a human being in terms of courage, heart, mental acuity and brawn.” Asked to name his favorite boxing movie, Jackson selects the Muhammad Ali documentary “When We Were Kings.” “It’s not only a great boxing movie, I think that’s one of the greatest movies of all time,” he raves. “And I love ‘Rocky’… Some people have said to me that there are things in ‘Real Steel’ reminiscent of ‘Rocky.’ You bet there are, and why not? I feel like this is ‘Rocky’ for a new generation.” “Real Steel” benefited from the expertise of executive producer Steven Spielberg, who warned director Shawn Levy (“Date Night”) not to rely solely on computer-generated ’bots. For the sake

“I feel like this is ‘Rocky’ for a new generation.” Hugh Jackman

ugh Jackman might have a reputation as one of Hollywood’s nicest guys, but that hasn’t stopped him from connecting with some pretty shady characters. Consider Wolverine, quite possibly the surliest superhero in the comic book galaxy. Or the sleazy attorney Jackman played to perfection in the little-seen “Deception.” Or “Real Steel’s” Charlie Kenton, a hothead who, among his other flaws, is one of the world’s worst dads. “Truth be told, I enjoyed playing that,” says Jackman with a laugh. “I have an 11-year-old son (and a 6-year-old daughter.) And, literally, there are times that you want to say things, and you just have to shove it back down inside. I’ve walked out of rooms so frustrated and in fear of what I’m going to say in that moment. For the three months (of shooting the movie), it all just came out.” As if connecting with his innerbadass wasn’t fun enough for Jackman, he also grooved on playing a grizzled ex-boxer who’s given body and soul to the fight game.

When “Real Steel” begins, it’s 2020 and Charlie’s sport has been taken over by 8-foot steel robots. To make a living, he’s become a coach and promoter, working dingy venues across the country. At his lowest ebb, Charlie reluctantly agrees to assume custody of his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo). The pair winds up coming together to rebuild and train Atom, a ’bot boxer one step away from the scrap heap. For Charlie, it’s his “Rocky” moment, his one last shot at the big time. “He’s a guy who’s lost belief in himself, Charlie has,” notes Jackman, 43. “He thinks the world has passed him over. He doesn’t feel anything anymore because it’s easier to live that way. When life is disappointing to you and you get hurt so much, you end up just switching off.” Boxing movies have been a mainstay in Hollywood dating back to the days of silents when both Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton played pugilists. Since then, everyone from John Garfield and Kirk Douglas to Robert De

of the actors, the production built life-size robots which were operated by human handlers via hightech remote control panels. “Shawn never lost sight of the fact that we need to make people feel for these robots,” says Jackman. “This is not a showcase for special effects. This is not a movie where you’re going, ‘Oh, wow, cool.’ The only goal is that, at the end, people should be cheering and feeling for that robot.” In the movie, the mechanized fighters do most of the boxing while Jackman works as Atom’s corner man. Still, the actor wanted to look like a grappler who’d spent his life in the ring. Enter Sugar Ray Robinson, who served as the film’s fight choreographer and Jackman’s trainer. “I’d already been doing some training when I saw him the first time and he was, like, ‘You’ve got a little more work to do, pal.’ So, he was honest with me about that,’” says Jackman. Although Jackman was still in fighting trim thanks to his portrayal of Wolverine, he had to develop a whole new set of skills for Charlie Kenton. “When I play Wolverine, I don’t always have to keep my fists up, guarding my face … Wolverine has claws and

can take your head off. So, on this one, I had to be a little more specific about my training.” Speaking of Wolverine, as anyone who’s seen “X-Men: First Class” knows, Jackman had a hilarious cameo in the movie as the typically churlish superhero. Much to the actor’s delight, Wolverine got to drop an f-bomb, a first for the franchise. “They asked me to do that bit a year before they shot it,” recalls Jackman. “I said, ‘Pitch me the concept.’ I thought, ‘OK, yeah, I like that.’ I said, ‘Is anyone else swearing in the movie?’ and they said, ‘We don’t think so.’ I said, ‘Promise me no one else swears in the movie and I’m in.’” It’s only a matter of time, says Jackman, before “The Wolverine” goes in front of the cameras. “Walk the Line” helmer James Mangold recently took over the directorial reins from Darren Aronofsky (“The Wrestler”) and the script is undergoing a final tweak. “It’s going to be a little darker and I think a little more truer to the character of Wolverine,” says Jackman, noting that Chris McQuarrie’s screenplay is “by far the best script that we’ve had (for an ‘X-Man’ movie).” After all these years, does Jackman ever get tired of playing the character who made him famous? “No, I love Wolverine,” he says. “‘X-Men’ was the first film I did in America and somehow I lucked upon the greatest of all the superhero roles because he feels very human to me. He has dilemmas and demons. When I play Wolverine, I don’t feel like a guy with claws and ridiculous hair. I feel like a guy battling against life.” Next up for Jackman is the big-screen version of the Broadway musical “Les Miserables.” Under Tom Hooper’s (“The King’s Speech”) direction, Jackman will play the parolee-turned-industrialist Jean Valjean who is pursued to hell and back by the exacting police inspector Javert (Russell Crowe.) “If you’re going to do a musical, it helps that it’s one of the most beloved musicals of all time,” says Jackman. “Jean Valjean is a great part … From working with the director of ‘The King’s Speech’ to Russell Crowe playing Javert, this movie feels special to me.” If Jackman is worried about the iffy track record of recent musicals at the box office, he’s not letting on. “Look, I just did a movie about robot boxing that’s supposed to make both my mother-in-law and my 11-year-old son happy,” he says with a laugh. “I know what’s a tough task.” W

ALBUM REVIEWS Primus plays it heavy and loose

Primus is a band that hasn’t been heard from in quite a while. Among many of today’s music fans, the slap-bass-centric trio headed by the ever-eccentric Les Claypool is probably just about as well known for performing the “South Park” theme song as they were for carving out a truly unique niche in the world of alternative music during the 1990s. However, after years of silence, the band recently released “Green Naugahyde,” its first collection of new material in more than a decade. In the past, the subject matter of Primus’ music always walked a fine line between fantasy and

reality. On “Green Naugahyde,” the band retains that warped sense of humor with songs such as “Lee Van Cleef ” or “Eyes of the Squirrel,” but Primus provides some social commentary on the album, too. Hipster culture and our society’s materialistic ways come under fire on “Hennepin Crawler” and “Eternal Consumption Engine,” and the band shares its opinion on our obsession with reality shows on “Moron TV.” While for some it may be disconcerting to hear Primus sing about real-world issues, the band’s humorous take helps to point out just how ridiculous they are.

Andrew Jackson Jihad “Knife Man” Rating: W W W

Jihad's witty and off-beat remarks It is quite rare to make music that is both humorous and disturbing at the same time. Indie rockers Andrew Jackson Jihad is best known for its offbeat social commentary via its music, touching on the good, the bad and, yes, the very ugly things that make up

In terms of the music itself, “Green Naugahyde” is exactly what one would expect. Once again, Claypool uses the album as a vehicle to show off his skills with the bass guitar, and the entire album has a heavy, loose feel to it because of that. Some tracks, such as “Last Salmon Man” or “Tragedy’s A-Comin,’” have a sort of singsong, rambling quality to them, but much of the rest of the album has a good rhythm, and Primus sounds refreshed and energized after the time off. While “Green Naugahyde” probably is not the year’s most groundbreaking album, it is refreshing to hear from Primus again. Longtime fans will enjoy hearing something new from an old friend, and new ones can use the album as a great introductory piece to the band’s music. -- Michael Irwin Weekender Correspondent

human nature. The two-man show — guitarist/ vocalist Sean Bonnette and upright bassist/vocalist Ben Gallaty — recently released its fourth studio album, “Knife Man,” and despite the occasional unsettling lyric on tracks such as “Back Pack,” Andrew Jackson Jihad’s darker side is always encased in upbeat and energetic music. The duo has the frenzied intensity of a punk band, yet maintains the quiet storytelling quality of a folk act. Each of this album’s 16 tracks touches on a different issue that is pervasive in our culture, including racism, violence and love. AJJ mocks it all on this album, beginning with the short intro “The Michael Jordan of Drunk Driving,” during which it comments on drunk driving and how the driver plays his “final game.” “American Tune” is a amusing take on why it’s easier to be a straight white man in America while the track “People II 2: Still Peoplin’” is about bad decisions and hardships. Whether you are into this type of music or not, there will be something on this album that you’ll like or, at the very least, will make you think. Andrew Jackson Jihad has a dark humor that is both admirable and witty. -- Lisa Schaeffer Weekender Correspondent

Bush “The Sea of Memories” Rating: W W W 1/2

Down memory lane For the past decade, it seemed ’90s altrockers Bush was kaput. Following its demise, frontman Gavin Rossdale went on to helm Institute, dip into acting and become a family man with wife Gwen Stefani. But last summer, Bush — with Rossdale and drummer Robin Goodridge as the only original members — reformed and recently released “The Sea of Memories,” its first

album in10 years. “The Mirror Of The Signs,” is a good starting point, with staccato drums and swirling guitars, and Rossdale’s vocals have held up. Lead single, “The Sound Of Winter,” has very rhythmic guitars and Rossdale beckoning, “Let’s walk through the fire together.” The sludgy “All My Life” precedes standout track “The Afterlife,” which has a punky guitar and drum dance and a repetitive echo reminiscent of “Mouth” from1996’s “Razorblade Suitcase.” The pretty “All Night Doctors” is another highlight, which starts with prominent piano and Rossdale’s emotive vocals. “Were you ever my love?” he wonders. About two minutes in, a great fuzzy guitar kicks in. “Baby Come Home” sounds similar to the group’s1995 breakout, “Everything Zen.” “Red Light” has an ’80s-esque drum fill that makes the song feel dated, while the punchy “She’s A Stallion” sounds like ’90s Bush — and that’s a compliment. Closer “Be Still My Love” has prominent bass drum, searing guitar and an almost somber feel. “Be still, be still my love,” Rossdale implores. “The Sea of Memories” is a continuation of the sound that set Bush apart from other bands of its heyday, much of which was because of Rossdale’s incomparable vocals. Fans will welcome the album, but it’s too soon to tell how it’ll hold up with other listeners. -- Nikki M. Mascali Weekender Editor

Special to the Weekender

im Halperin was a week away from making history on “American Idol” not just once, but twice. He became the first contestant in the show’s history to perform an original track, “The Last Song,” and make the Top 24. The following week, Halperin lost. Had he been voted on, the Omaha, Neb., native would’ve been the first competitor to perform a Tom Petty song on “Idol.” “(Petty’s) traditionally not let (‘Idol’) do any of his songs,” Halperin explained, calling in from Dallas to promote his new album, “Rise & Fall.” “But Jimmy Iovine, who’s president of Interscope Records, he called Tom Petty’s manager up.” The record mogul played an instrumental role in Petty’s career, so for Iovine, it was almost as simple as calling in a favor to a longtime friend. Certainly there would have been a bit of pressure on Halperin had he been the first to perform a Petty cut on the show. But despite his elimination, the singer/songwriter continued to pursue his dream of performing music. That certainly brought along more pressure, with this chapter culminating in the release of “Rise & Fall.” “‘American Idol’ was absolutely great, I wouldn’t have traded that time on that show for anything,” Halperin said. “But the tough part comes after the show, because basically what you are is a reality-TV star.” Halperin’s honest perspective forced him to find creative ways within the legalities of his “Idol” contract to keep his momentum going until he was allowed to release an album. That led him to 97 BHT’s “Kidd Kraddick in the Morning.” The singer became an integral part of the show this summer, even appearing at The Mall at Steamtown with the

show’s Big Al Mack to perform in center court. Halperin sang originals in the morning and took part in a reoccurring segment called, “Idol Got it Wrong.” Each week, Kraddick would play a performance from the show and then Halperin’s performance of that same song in studio. Listeners would vote on who sang better. The listeners chose Halperin’s renditions every week, thus saying in essence that the show did get it wrong with his early elimination. But the numbers don’t lie either: Halperin’s debut topped the iTunes Singers and Songwriters chart last week. TAIO CRUZ DROPS NEW SINGLE He came to dance, dance, dance … and dance. Now, Taio Cruz is paying for that night of partying from “Dynamite” in his new track, “Hangover,” which was leaked to radio last Friday. The chorus screams “headache” as Taio shouts, “I got a hangover, whoooooaaaaah, ohhhh!” Dr. Luke produced the song, which features a verse from someone who may know a thing or two about partying: Flo Rida. The single is the first cut released from Cruz’s forthcoming LP. The album is set for a November release and is tentatively titled, “TY.O.” Cruz’s last album, “Rokstarr,” yielded the hit records “Break Your Heart” and “Dynamite.” The two tracks collectively sold more than 21 million copies worldwide. The latter single also won Cruz three Billboard Music Awards in 2011. “Rokstarr” was released in the United States on June 11, 2010 and served as the U.K. singer’s debut album in the U.S. W

Rocking against diabetes A

ny parent will tell you that when there’s something wrong with their child, they immediately know. Sleepy eyes can mean a cold is coming on. An unexpected afternoon nap can mean a fever. As a parent, you are aware of it, and you take care of it. You help your child. Dave Partenio of Carbondale is trying to help his child and others. And he’s taking on something much more serious than a simple case of the sniffles. Partenio is helping organize this Sunday’s “Rock Against Diabetes” event at Kildare’s in Scranton, which was inspired by his 8-year-old son, Noah. Partenio says it was 14 months ago that his son woke up one morning after battling what his doctor had said was a stomach virus. Something, however, was wrong. “He walked into the living room six pounds lighter from the day before,” says Partenio. “His eyes were sunken, and his skin tone had faded to grayish blue. His doctor suggested we wait until the next day to bring him into the office, but we opted for the emergency room. We soon learned that his blood sugar was over 1,000 and the staff worked vigorously over the next several hours to bring his levels down and prevent him from going into a diabetic coma or shock.” Noah was soon diagnosed with juvenile diabetes and has faced

many challenges. Partenio says his school lost the instructions on how to help care for him. He says the administration singled him out from other students, isolating him in the nurse’s office during lunches and recesses. He says other students took notice and began to make fun of him, and that when he felt ill, he would sometimes be sent back to class without any treatment. “Exclusion from society for any adult is tough, but for an 8-year old boy within his school environment, it’s far more damaging,” says Partenio, adding that a move to a new and more accommodating school has helped improve the situation. “His one wish is to be like other children,” he says. “He’s doing good. His spirits are better, and he’s not secluded from kids anymore. He doesn’t have to sit with the nurse all day.” Sunday’s “Rock Against Diabetes” will attempt to raise mon-

“As we got further involved in putting together the show, we found out that there are other people in the area having similar issues. There’s just not an awareness of how serious this is.” Dave Partenio, who helped organize RAD

ey for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and help create awareness for the more than 15,000 children that are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in the U.S. each year. Proceeds from the show will also help fund the development of a local social network for children with diabetes. “As we got further involved in putting together the show, we found out that there are other people in the area having similar issues,” says Partenio. “One gentleman told me that when he was in school, it was so misunderstood that when he would go down to the office, they would actually tell him to ‘just go back to class and put your head on the desk.’ There’s just not an awareness of how serious this is. You can actually die from having a sugar level that’s extremely low or extremely high.” Partenio says that even the parking lot of Kildare’s will be a part of the event, with tents offering free pastries and a video game zone. There will also be food and drink specials inside and six bands — Dashboard Mary, Pink Slip, Maybe Someday, Nowhere Slow, Graces Downfall and Absolution — that were more than willing to help. “The people from these six bands have been fantastic,” Partenio says. “As soon as they heard the story, they were all on board. They all said they definitely wanted to help make a difference and make people aware.” W

bitch & brag By Jeff and Amanda of 98.5 KRZ

Special to the Weekender Amanda’s Bitch: People who exploit themselves in a public forum for fame don’t typically bother me. “Jersey Shore” is my guilty pleasure, and I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the train wrecks on “Bridezillas.” Here’s what makes me sick: People who aren’t even on a reality show that make a mockery of their personal lives purposely in a public way. It’s been hard to ignore the whole Tareq and Michaele Salahi drama, and it just continues to get more and more ridiculous. We first knew them as the “White House Party Crashers,” then they joined the cast of the oh-so-classy “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Now, after reports of bankruptcy and trouble in paradise, the two have not just split publicly, they first made it appear like Michaele was kidnapped, and in a dramatic turn of events, she left her husband for Neal Schon, the guitarist for Journey. Now she’s flaunting her blonde self all over the stage in true groupie form following Journey on its tour while Tareq is now pitching a dating show. She literally left him weeks ago, and he’s trying to land a dating show? If the show happens, it’ll be called “Seducing Salahi” and 14 women will compete for his affections. Do you know a single woman who would actually want to compete for this fame whore’s love? Someone needs to bring these two back down to earth. Jeff Brags: I think it’s a safe bet that most women would prefer to be lean, firm and flexible

Even post breakup, the ‘White House Party Crashers’ Michaele and Tareq Salahi continue to be ridiculous. and most guys would love to be bigger, stronger and more cut. And why not? We all want to look our best and feel great physically. The age-old problem is how to get there. Eat healthier? Work out more? Do more cardio? Lift heavier? Pilates? Yoga? Zumba? Whew! The possibilities are endless, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve tried bouncing from one workout to another, from one strategy to another, from one gym to another and never seeing any dramatic results. That brings me to Tony Horton, the creator of P90X. Not only is it now one of the most successful infomercials in history, but it delivers exactly what it promises! Personally, I spent 30 years going to various gyms and never looking any different. Finally, after turning 51, I decided to order P90X. I was a little nervous. I heard how tough it was but couldn’t stop watching that damn infomercial where just normal average people like myself had amazing transformations! So I gave it 100 percent for the 90 days and

Jeff swears by — and brags about — Tony Horton’s P90X.

was kind of shocked at my results. But I gained something more important from it than just looking better: It made me feel so much better! When you can feel your core muscles when you move, when you gain more flexibility, when your endurance levels explode, and you can do far more than you ever thought you could, the feeling is indescribable. And trust me, the older you get, the more important this becomes. I know Tony and told him personally on more than one occasion, P90X changed my life. Literally. It’s brutally hard, but worth every minute of sweat and pain. Working out for me is now a daily ritual whether it’s P90X or one of the parent company’s other great programs. A buddy of mine, Larry Crimi and I formed a local group of P90X fans. If you want to see what real-life results average people can get, check out NEPA90.com. (By the way, there’s a new P90X coming late this year, so get ready for more infomercials! They may just change your life, too!) W

he education I get from simply living in the big city has been teaching me as much as the school I attend — there is inspiration everywhere, and people seem to be way more adventurous and execute new trends in ways I never thought before. Just walking to class every day feels as if I’m walking through the pages of a fashion magazine with inspiring looks on every sidewalk block. But my favorite part of the city and living in Philadelphia now has got to be the spontaneous events and opportunities Attending AI Philadelphia, Janelle and some fellow students that seem to get thrown were able to volunteer at a my way just for being at fashion show. the right place at the right time.

Stockings still heating things up

urry in a ladies’ you are in a hurry restroom, it is quite easy to put your fingernails right through the thin material, ripping a hole in them. It’s the worst. That being said, I still find hosiery as an essential part of my collection. So if I’m going to brave it, I’m going all out and wearing the sexiest damn pair of pantyhose I can find. Although I had a thing for thigh highs back in the ’90s, those days are over for me as I have no time to constantly be adjusting them. Are they hot? They sure are, but thigh highs and garters, snaps and gadgets are all just a bit much, and I don’t want have to strap into my hosiery to gear up for a sure battle throughout the day. But stockings with piping down the back or a sexy pair of fishnets? Now we’re talking my language. These types of hosiery must be bought and

worn with caution, however. Sexy and classy is what you’re striving for, not trashy. You want to look well-put together, not like a street walker. If you pair some daring pantyhose up with the wrong outfit or pair of heels, you’re asking to be called a hooker. And nobody wants that. So have a little talk with your hosiery and work out your differences as they really are a must have in the fall and winter. Bare legs in blistery cold conditions look silly, so some type of hosiery is a necessary evil. May as well make them look sinfully sexy and embrace the snug casings. W

have a love-hate relationship with hosiery. Tights and I get along just fine, but pantyhose and I often battle it out. Here’s why: They are uncomfortable, I am in constant fear of them ripping. Getting a run in my stockings nearly sends me into a tizzy, so the fear of that gives me anxiety. One little imperfection on a pair of hosiery, and your entire look is off. So I guess, in a way, hosiery has too much power within an ensemble. Being a control freak about my wardrobe, this can cause confrontation, which is why if I do wear hosiery, I always buy an identical back up pair to take along with me in case I accidentally brush up against something and injure them. Let’s face it, we’re ladies so eventually at some point during the day there will be a pulling down and pulling up of pantyhose. And if

Charity Water is a non-profit organization that brings clean, safe drinking water to people in underdeveloped parts of the world.

N

early 1 billion people on the planet do not have access to clean drinking water … 1 billion, that’s a lot of people. It’s not that water is completely scarce in the world; it’s just not easily accessible to a lot of areas. Without water, we could not exist, life could not exist. If we look back about 100 years ago to New York and London, they were both cities that carried a lot of infectious diseases. It was the reforms of water and sanitation that allowed the cities to progress and control disease. According to a poll by the British Medical Journal, clean water and sanitation have been the most important medical advancement since the 1840s. We know that water is a renewable resource, however we seem to be depleting that resource faster than we know what to do with it. With areas in the world that lack safe water and sanitation and with 90 percent of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week being from unsafe water, it is safe to say we have a water crisis on our hands. Charity Water is a non-profit organization that has recently caught my attention. The organization brings clean and safe drinking water to people in underdeveloped parts of the world. In a little more than three years, Charity Water has funded nearly 4,000 water projects in 19 countries. With the completion of these projects, the organization will provide clean,

safe drinking water for more than 1.9 million people. The solution to unsafe water is rather simple, from deep-drilled wells to water-filtration systems, clean water can be available to everyone. Charity Water is operated by a group of private donors, so every dollar that is donated by the public goes directly to those in need. There are lots of different ways you can get involved. If you visit New York City, you can attend a monthly volunteer night to help out in the office and meet other supporters. You can also create a fundraising campaign to help collect donations for cleaner water. Water changes everything and is the most important resource we have. Excessive use of groundwater is depleting our precious resource and overuse and pollution of water are not only harming the planet, they’re killing our population.

The musical ‘Cats’ has been translated to more than 20 languages and will hit local stages for the first time when Phoenix Theatrics Young Adults takes it on.

“I think the dancing, more than anything, will hinder a lot of people from wanting to do it, because it’s a lot of choreography, non-stop for two hours.” ‘Cats’ director/choreographer Lee LaChette

lot of people from wanting to do it, because it’s a lot of choreography, non-stop for two hours.” Because of that, LaChette and the performers have taken more time than usual to prepare for “Cats,” choosing to forego the standard preparation period of six or eight weeks that the company usually prescribes to. “We’ve put a lot of time and effort into it,” she said. “We started back in July. We started right after the Fourth of July, so we’ve been working on this for three months.” With the exception of the stage, which remains the same throughout the entire show, every aspect of “Cats” is in-depth, particularly the costumes, music and makeup. “We had makeup rehearsals,” LaChette said. “Everybody in the cast got a diagram of their face and learned how to put their own makeup on. We actually took diagrams of the faces right from

the Broadway (production).” She noted that the company also received help in the form of backtracks from Rodgers & Hammerstein, because it would be impossible to fit an entire orchestra in the theater. And there will be some special effects, like a black-lit stage. To transform into our feral friends, the crew at Phoenix put a lot of fur, sweat and tears into the process “That’s probably why nobody else wants to touch it, except somebody crazy like me,” LaChette said, laughing. “It’s a W challenge.” “Cats:” Oct. 7-23, Fri.-Sat., 8 p.m., Sun., 2 p.m. The Phoenix Performing Arts Center (409411 Main St., Duryea). $12.

tealthy, skulking and surreptitious, cats may have nine lives, but they also have a penchant for Fancy Feast and harbor an unexplainable fascination with birds and other diminutive creatures. As you can imagine, that makes it difficult to relate, especially if your role in a certain upcoming play requires you to take on those attributes as your own. “It was extremely difficult to keep telling yourself you’re not a human being, you’re a cat,” said Lee LaChette, director and choreographer of the forthcoming local production of “Cats.” “And it’s like you have to watch your arms and what they’re doing, and you’ve got to crawl instead of walk. So, a lot of it was interesting.” The much-loved musical will be produced on a NEPA stage for the first time by Phoenix Theatrics Young Adults at The Phoenix Performing Arts Centre in Duryea on weekends Oct. 7-23. “Cats” has been translated to more than 20 languages and has gained notoriety since its opening at the New London Theatre in London in 1981. And according to LaChette, the rights are available for purchase from Rodgers & Hammerstein, with the cost based on each theater’s seating and average ticket prices. Phoenix was able to get the ball rolling on the production thanks to those standards, along with help from its sponsor, Bath Fitter. The popularity of the show and the ease of obtaining it beg the question: Why hasn’t the production been staged in the area before? “Well, it’s pretty challenging,” LaChette explained. “The music itself, of course, because of it being Andrew Lloyd Webber (the original composer). Plus, it being a rock opera, it’s non-stop music and dancing. I think the dancing, more than anything, will hinder a

Amazon sets books on Fire

arnes & Noble has been high on the hog for the past few months as its brilliantly executed Nook Color e-reader captured the limelight. But Amazon has been burning the midnight oil, and what it came up with was the Fire, its own color e-book reader. Only time will tell if this Kindle is as good as its monochromatic kin at burning through the books, but it has other, unique strengths. First, the similarities. Both the Kindle Fire and the Nook Color are based upon Android, Google’s open-source mobile operating system. Like the Nook, the Fire has an extremely clear and vibrant 7-inch IPS display. It’s

also got a Gorilla Glass crackresistant screen and comes with 512 MB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. Unlike the Nook, the Fire has a dual-core processor. While it might seem strange to talk about processor speed for e-book readers, it’s not — the Nook Color actually makes for an extremely competent and attractive Android tablet, but it runs on an 800 GHz processor. With a 1 GHz dualcore processor, the Kindle Fire should be more attractive to power users. Another factor may appeal to those in search of savings; the Kindle Fire is priced at $200, compared to the Nook Color’s $250.

The Fire also offers access to the Amazon Appstore, a WiFi connection (there is no 3G access included), and all of the usual books and such that previous versions of the Kindle have provided. And the Fire has Whispersync (allowing you to use one or more Kindle devices or readers while saving your bookmarks). There’s another major difference. Since the Fire is fairly powerful for an e-reader, it can be used to watch television shows and movies. And the Whispersync capability extends to that content, so if you’re using Amazon’s on-demand video service on your TV at home, you can start up where you stopped

Amazon’s Kindle Fire.

on your mobile device. All in all, the Kindle Fire appears to be a great value — a powerful color e-book reader for $200. W

As some of you may already know, Horror Hall is a 100% fundraiser for the Plymouth Township Fire & Rescue company; Tilbury Station. Due to the recent large scale flooding of the Wyoming Valley our facility is in use as a disaster relief center to assist our community. Our volunteer members are also busy helping our friends and neighbors with clean up efforts. Due to the massive scale of these endeavors, we will be unable to open and run Horror Hall 2011. We truly regret this decision, however it is necessary to allow us to focus on the task at hand. We would like to thank everyone for their past patronage and their anticipated future patronage. We will see you all next year for an even bigger and better frighteningly good time at Horror Hall 2012. Have a safe and Happy Halloween season. The members of the Plymouth Township Fire & Rescue Co.

WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2011

AGENDA, FROM PAGE 63


By Caeriel Crestin

Weekender Correspondent LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) It’s amazing how some people’s stories change when they’re backed into a corner. Why would you trust someone so slippery, when they’ve already proven that they’ll reveal some portion of an inconvenient, embarrassing or shameful truth only when they feel they have no other choice? While it’s important to generally give people the benefit of the doubt, and mostly be trusting instead of suspicious, in this case a little cynical wariness is warranted. “Innocent until proven guilty” is a fine bottom line, but once proven a little guilty, it’s okay to assume there’s a high likelihood of greater guilt, at least until you get evidence to the contrary. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) When people put on blinders and engage in the kind of tunnel vision you’re somewhat famous for, they can inadvertently be so insensitive or clueless that they’re actually downright cruel. Since you know how it is to engage in single-minded, even obsessive, behavior, a cautionary word from you might be better received than from someone with more reason to be self-righteous. I’m a big fan of intensity, but I think there’s room even in that to hold onto bare minimum human decency. Since someone you know may be having a hard time hanging on to theirs, give them a hand. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) It sucks when the rules get changed after the game’s begun. You’re willing to jump into any challenging situation and work it until things work out in your favor; however, that’s difficult to do when the parameters of your circumstances mutate constantly and unpredictably. However, instead of harping (justifiably) on the unfairness of it all, you need to accept what’s happening and work with it nevertheless. You can still win this game — as long as you’re not determined to play it how you thought it ought to be played before you began. As mentioned, the rules have changed and may continue to do so. Adapt.

can let more, if not all, of this trivial crap slide. These tiny, nagging issues are, weirdly signs of just how great your life is. Isn’t it about time you noticed? AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Trying to get through some situations without pissing anyone off is, quite simply, impossible. In fact, attempting to avoid anger may have negative repercussions: Fear of rage or conflict may end up leading you down exactly the worst possible path through these circumstances, or simply make matters worse (and people more angry). You must resign yourself to bearing the brunt of others’ fury no matter what, and concentrate instead on trying to find the smartest and/or most honorable route here. Then, when people get pissed, at least you’ll know you’ve done the right thing (or as close to it as possible). PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Don’t shit where you sleep … or where you work, eat, love or live. It’s all too easy to mess up what you’ve got with a moment of hormone-induced stupidity (perhaps losing your temper, or hooking up with someone you shouldn’t), especially right now. Draw strong, clear lines between the different parts of your life and forbid yourself to cross them. I know you love bending and breaking rules, especially ones like these — and you can, later. Right now, though, keep everything behind its own wall, no matter the temptation to tear those walls down. What’s one wall? Not much. But these are all connected. Rip one down, and they’ll all tumble to the ground; good luck finding something you recognize

while picking through all that rubble. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You’re in a prime position to be a scapegoat, taking the blame for something that’s not actually your responsibility. Naturally, I can understand your desire to vociferously protest such an unfair burden, but unfortunately your arguments are only likely to make you look guiltier, instead of more innocent. That’s right, you’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t. Therefore, spare yourself the effort. Simply bite your tongue and take whatever happens with a grain of salt, remembering and taking comfort in the truth, even if you’re the only one who knows or believes it. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Let the punishment, if there is to be one, fit the crime. Resist the temptation to climb up on a righteous pedestal when you’re wronged, and spew forth your justified wrath. It’s not like you’ve never screwed up. Therefore, don’t get carried away trying to make someone pay for their mistakes. In fact, your best bet might be to surprise everyone by simply being gracious, forgiving and just letting it go. The nice thing about that is, it takes a whole lot less effort and energy than seeking justice, and despite depriving you of revenge or validation, will ultimately yield better (in terms of enjoyment and satisfaction) results than getting up on your soapbox ever could. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) While breaking up with someone on Facebook may be bitchily satisfying and

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) While it’s certainly nice, noble and even occasionally brave to explain your reasons for doing or feeling something, it’s not always necessary. Sometimes all anyone needs to know is what your decision is, not the logic or emotions behind it. In this case it’s simpler to stick to the facts, avoiding details. Nothing good or useful will come of a lengthier explanation. Just tell those who need to know what you’ve decided and then politely but firmly change the subject. If they can’t let it go, leave. They can go on demanding clarification and answers from the walls if they want. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Things take as long as they take, and they simply can’t be rushed. Even though we rationally know this, it’s not as easy to accept and move past the emotions that come along with. However, that’s this week’s challenge: Being patient despite your impatience. Indulging your desire to hurry will not only not move you faster down the path you wish to go, it may ironically cause greater delays, and undo some of the good work you’ve already done. So take a deep breath, do the stuff you need to be doing, and wait it out. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) There are many cool things I wish I had time to pursue. But I know I wouldn’t enjoy them unless I could devote enough time and energy to do them justice. It’s frustrating and annoying to do stuff when you can’t give it your all — something that happens when you spread yourself too thin, as you have lately. Taking more on may seem like a terrible idea, but that all depends on what it is you take on — and what you let go of. If you feel called to add something new to your life, go for it — but make sure you let go of at least three of the balls you’re already juggling, so you can give this one the attention it deserves.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Yes, much of the little shit you have to deal with right now is annoying. No one contests that. However, it’s all little shit. In the grand scheme of things, your frustration’s actually a luxury. The only reason you’re getting worked up about this crap is because you’re lucky enough to not have more serious stuff to worry about. That’s a blessing. Remember that, and see if you

incredibly entertaining for the spectators involved, it’s also much crueler than a private face-to-face chat would have been. Your job as a human being is to first own and be aware of your feelings and then clearly share them with those they concern in the least hurtful way possible. While my Facebook example is rather more extreme than what you were considering, my point remains: You still haven’t hit on the kindest way to communicate what’s on your mind. Don’t use that as an excuse to procrastinate, but do try to find a sweeter way.

Ride of the Week

Matt Rutledge of Wilkes-Barre

what happened and accepted my new friend request. I thought it would be random and funny if, immediately after he accepted my friend request, he got a new friend request sent to his phone. So I kept deleting and adding him, assuming the Focker would know I was only f-king around. Instead, the uptight Focker stopped talking to me. Weeks passed, and the crazy Focker wouldn’t return my calls, texts or Facebook messages. Figuring he was joking back by pretending to be mad over something so trivial, I told him that until he started talking to me again, I would text him a picture of Angela Lansbury, the star of “Murder, She Wrote,” every hour, on the hour. After hours of Angela Lansbury pictures, he still wouldn’t budge. When the date for our New York trip arrived, the Focker didn’t show up. After a week of letting him cool down and not harassing him with pictures of Lansbury, I noticed he blocked me on Facebook. What was worse is that his mom blocked me, too. What a mother Focker! From now on, even as a joke, I’ll never delete someone on Facebook — nor will I ever be invited for dinner with the Fockers!

eleting someone on Facebook is the social media equivalent of spitting on someone’s face. With that said, I was just spit in the face by my friend’s mom. It all started when I was testing an iPad at Best Buy. While checking my Facebook on the portable device, I decided to write on my friend Gaylord Focker’s wall about how excited I was for our upcoming weekend trip to New York. OK, his name isn’t really Gaylord Focker, but he’s a male nurse, and surprise, surprise, there really isn’t another well-known name that can be associated with male nurses. That silly Focker and I fully intended to rock the Big Apple like a slurricane (a drunken rampage that would leave damage similar to a hurricane). However, the damage that was about to take place was due to a Facebook foul rather than a handle of cheap vodka. Just as I was writing on the Focker’s wall, the iPad froze! My impatience led me to tap uncontrollably on the screen. When it finally unfroze, everything I hit while tapping went into effect, causing me to accidentally un-friend and Poke him in a matter of seconds. He was an understanding Focker when I messaged him
