It’s a well-known fact I love my spam e-mails, and this one from Mrs. Zarina Al-Usman is certainly up there. The 59 year old “was diagnosed for cancer for about two years ago,” and has been critically ill in the hospital since 2010 “when I was recently diagnosed with Hypoglycaemia” (her spelling, not mine). Mrs. Al-Usman wants to will me her fortune (“some huge amount” left from her late husband), which is magic to my ears, what with holiday shopping on the horizon. Mrs. Al-Usman’s attorney is at the ready to transfer said funds because “the necessary documents have been signed and ascertained,” and state tax “have been paid on the day of deposit.” The only red flag is that Mrs. Al-Usman is “in an intensive ward where I do not have access

social

to receive calls as a result of my health condition,” yet she can send an e-mail. Pretty lax hospital methinks, but I guess that’s par for the health-care course these days. “Meanwhile, you are advised to keep this mail and its contents confidential as I really want my wish accomplish at the end of the day without any of my relatives knowing about these funds, please do remember me in your prayers as I give you the assurance that this is legal.” Whoops. Hope confidentially doesn’t null my windfall or there won’t be lots of presents under the Weekender tree this year after all. Speaking of Christmas, TransSiberian Orchestra will return to NEPA this week, but before you write TSO off as just a seasonal act, check out this week’s cover story (pgs. 14-15) to learn that there’s much more behind the group. Also in this week’s issue, Staff Writer Stephanie DeBalko chats with Kingston resident Julia Frakes who’s been imbedding herself in New York’s fashion world for years. Read more about this chic 21 year old on p. 32. There’s a lot more in this week’s issue, so off you go — and thanks for reading! Nikki M. Mascali Weekender Editor

Crime-Fighting: (1) In October, about 120 professional mimes began voluntarily patrolling the traffic-congested Sucre district of Caracas, Venezuela, at the request of Mayor Carlos Ocariz. The white-gloved mimes’ specialty was wagging their fingers at scofflaw motorists and pedestrians, and mimes interviewed by the Associated Press reported improvements. (2) At least 300 professional clowns from Mexico and Central America, in Mexico City in October for a convention, demonstrated against the country’s drug-cartel violence by laughing, in unison, nonstop, for 15 minutes. (They were likely less successful than the mimes.) SANGUINARY SUPPER “You eat meat, so why not blood?” asked The Globe and Mail, which sampled several Toronto restaurants’ sanguinary haute cuisines, including the Italian eatery Buca’s spaghetti with blood-blackened noodles and torta di sanguinaccio (figs, almonds, buffalo-milk creme, on a base custard of dark chocolate and slow-cooked pig’s blood). Patrons “thought we were crazy,” said chef Rob Gentile, but now “can’t seem to get enough.” The Black Hoof restaurant uses 10 liters of fresh blood a week for dishes like its own blood custard, seasoned with rosemary and pickled pears. Montreal’s DNA kitchen sometimes highlights blood soup and blood pasta. (The Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark — which some believe to be the best restaurant in the world — marinates cauliflower in pig’s blood.)

FAMILY VALUES -- Too Soon? An 11-year-old California boy and a 7-year-old Georgia girl have recently decided — with parental support — to come out as the other gender. The boy, Tommy, wants more time to think about it, said his lesbian parents, and has begun taking hormone blockers to make his transition easier should he follow through with plans (first disclosed at age 3) to become “Tammy.” The McIntosh County, Ga., girl has been living as a boy for a year, said father Tommy Theollyn, a transgendered man who is actually the one who gave birth. Theollyn petitioned the school board in September (unsuccessfully) to allow the child to use the boys’ bathroom. Theollyn said the girl first noticed she was a boy at age 18 months. BRIGHT IDEAS -- In Malone, N.Y., in September, Clyde Gardner, 57, was sentenced to five to 15 years in prison for trying to murder his ex-girlfriend twice. Initially, he was going to dress in a recently

ARMED AND CLUMSY -- People Who Shot Themselves Recently: Two men — a 23-year-old in Fayetteville, N.C. (June), and a 22-year-old in Seminole, Fla. (October), accidentally shot themselves in the head while trying to assure friends that their guns posed no danger. A firearms instructor shot himself in the thigh during his recertification class at the Smith & Wesson facility in Springfield, Mass. (September). A man on a first date at Ruth’s Chris Steak house in Charlotte, N.C., accidentally shot himself in the leg as he was escorting his date to their car (September). And as usual, at least one man (a 27-year-old in Chandler, Ariz.) paid the price for inartfully using his waistband as a holster, causing a “groin” injury (August). And Milwaukee police secured a search warrant to photograph Otis Lockett’s penis (July), as evidence that he was illegally in possession of a gun (as a felon) by showing that he had accidentally shot off nearly all of his W organ.

Maer’s BBQ plans to open in the site of the former Tony Thomas Deli on South Main Street in Wilkes-Barre next month. W-B READY TO BARBECUE

For more than 15 years, Tony Thomas Deli occupied 50 S. Main St. in Wilkes-Barre, and Maer’s BBQ hopes to carry Thomas’ torch. Owned by Eric Wagner, Mike Burns and Robert Burns, Maer’s BBQ will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night meals. The interior of the restaurant is currently being remodeled to install barbecue smokers, change the decor and the layout. “We had been thinking about (opening a restaurant) for a while, we all really enjoy cooking a lot,” Rob Burns told Dish Tuesday. “We hope to open in mid December.” Though the three have worked in different facets of the restaurant industry in the past, this is their first role as restaurant owners. Maer’s BBQ will offer barbecue-themed meals including smoked pork, brisket and ribs, as well as homemade flatbreads, “overstuffed” burgers and sandwiches, plus a full breakfast menu and special late-night fare. The restaurant will be open 7 a.m.-10 p.m. and until 3 a.m. on weekends.

Keeping later weekend hours were a no-brainer for Maer’s BBQ’s owners. “There’s not really anything open at that time,” Burns began, “and we thought we could bank on that and give the college kids something to eat that’s not pizza.” Maer’s is currently accepting applications for kitchen and wait staff and a delivery person. Call Eric Wagner at 570.371.8927 or e-mail maersbbq@gmail.com. GOING LOCAL

Locals is now open at 88 Poplar St. in Wilkes-Barre. Formerly The Poplar Inn, Locals is under new ownership and has been completely remodeled. The bar also features a new food menu that is served until 2 a.m. daily, a fully stocked bar and daily specials. Smoking is permitted. Locals is open MondayFriday from 6 p.m.-2 a.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 2 a.m. For reservations, take-out orders or more info, call Rob Nicoletti at 570.905.2629.

THE CONTINUING CRISIS -- “I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. And you’re not going to get me to get it,” warned Marine squadron commander Lt. Col. Jerry Turner (to a Wall Street Journal Afghanistan reporter writing in October), when learning that a few of his troops were sporting artistically shaped eyebrows sculpted by a barber in the town of Shinwar. “Stylist” Gulam Farooq can’t practice on Muslims (forbidden) but said “one or two” Marines come by every day (in between calling in artillery barrages) for tapering. -- A vendor at a street market in Leipzig, Germany, was revealed in September to be

shamelessly selling personally tailored coats and vests made with fur from house cats. A first report, in the sensationalist tabloid Bild, was doubted, but a follow-up by Germany’s premier news source, Spiegel, confirmed the story. The vendor said he needed eight cats to make a vest (priced at the equivalent of $685) and 18 for a coat. However, such sales are illegal under German and European Union laws, and the vendor subsequently denied that he sold such things.

skinned bear’s hide — walk on its paws, so as not to leave shoe prints, and “maul” her with the claws. After abandoning that plan, he promised a friend $15,000 to kill the woman in a car crash, and since Gardner was a demolition derby driver, he offered expert instructions (though the friend turned Gardner in). -- Awesome! The ingenuity of drug smugglers is never to be underestimated, as one ABC News report from Nogales, Ariz., in October demonstrated. Smugglers had dug tunnels from Nogales, Mexico, underneath the border to Nogales, Ariz., engineered perfectly to end along International Street’s metered parking spaces. Vans with false bottoms were parked in certain spaces (and meters were fed); smugglers in the vans broke though the pavement to meet the tunnelers, and the drugs were loaded. Still parked, the vans’ crews repaired the pavement, and the vans departed. “(U)nbelievable,” said the Arizona city’s mayor.

we have to give them the very best, whether it’s the first show, last show, middle show. For the people in the audience, it’s the first show.” Despite the economic downturn of the past few years, TSO’s tours have remained a major draw; in fact, the outfit made it into Billboard Magazine’s Top 25 Touring Artists of the Past Decade (1999-2009), and its show attendance was more than 1.1 million people in 2010. “Let’s use round numbers, and let’s make believe we did exactly 1 million tickets, and let’s make believe that everyone lives a half hour from the coliseum, and the show’s three hours. We don’t have the right to waste 4 million human hours without giving them the very best we can,” O’Neill emphasized.

o far, 2011’s been what O’Neill called “a wacky year.” Trans-Siberian Orchestra kicked the year off with the PBS special, “The Birth of Rock Theater,” which showcased the group’s rise from its inception in 1993 to its first tour in 1999 and beyond. TSO also took its first trip abroad to tour Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany and England, and the group worked on two new albums simultaneously. Friday’s performances at Mohegan Sun Arena will kickoff TSO’s Winter Tour 2011, an eight-month trek that includes 118 performances in roughly 80 North American cities.

he other album TSO has in the wings is “Romanov: What Kings Must Whisper,” a rock opera about the Bolshevik Revolution of 1918. “Romanov” was originally supposed to be released as TSO’s first album back in 1994, but was pushed back because there had been talk about taking it to Broadway instead. “A lot of people heard it and said it was too good to be a rock album,” O’Neill explained. The idea went far enough into fruition for O’Neill to secure complete artistic control for the project, but because of his background as a rock promoter and producer of groups like Aerosmith and Savatage, “Romanov: What Kings Must Whisper” never did make it onto the Great White Way. “I grew up in rock,” he said. “We wanted take-your-breathaway production, which Broadway theaters don’t have the infrastructure to do, so I pulled the plug on it because I’d rather it not be done than it be done wrong.” So back in the mid ’90s, TSO turned its attentions instead to rock operas and Christmas, specifically a trilogy about the holiday. When record executives wondered why TSO would go the latter route, O’Neill cited Charles Dickens. “Dickens wrote about subjects that were larger than life — the French Revolution in ‘A Tale of Two Cities,’ the industrial revolution with ‘Oliver Twist’ and ‘David Copperfield’ — but he wrote five books about Christmas,” O’Neill said. “And when a British reporter asked him about that, he goes, ‘Christmas is too large a subject to take on in one book.’ “If it’s too big for Dickens in

one book, it’s too big for me in one album.” “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” was released in 1996. “The Christmas Attic” followed in 1998, and “The Lost Christmas Eve” completed the trilogy in 2004. Trans-Siberian Orchestra also released two non-holiday themed rock operas, 2000’s “Beethoven’s Last Night” and “Night Castle” in 2009. But for many, whether they annually attend a TSO show or use its Christmas trilogy as the soundtrack for their holiday, TSO will always be synonymous with the Christmas season. For O’Neill, though, no matter how many times he hears “Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,” “Christmas Canon” or “Wizards in Winter,” it isn’t Christmas until he’s home. “To me, it’s not Christmas until I sit down with my family at midnight — and I’ve done this since I was 6 — and watch Alastair Sim in ‘A Christmas Carol,’” he shared. “I just love Christmas, everything from the snow to the whole nine yards. It’s always been my favorite day of the year, it’s just so overwhelming, just the way it unites generations, unites the world.” W

“It’s our job to make people feel emotions that they’ve never felt before.”

O’Neill. “Wilkes-Barre is filled with hard-working people who really care, it’s a great rock area,” he said. “(It’s) always had a special place in our heart … the band always feels at home there.” TSO has performed at the arena more than a dozen times, but one night there in particular is the most memorable to O’Neill: Nov. 17, 2006, when there was an issue with the venue’s water. “You couldn’t go to the bathroom, you couldn’t wash your hands, the whole nine yards,” O’Neill recalled. “We were stunned because for both shows, everybody showed up. It was unbelievable. I think we were more impressed with the audience that night than the audience was with the band,” he added, laughing. On this leg of the tour, TSO will perform its debut album, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories” in its entirety, as well as excerpts from “Gutter Ballet and The New York Blues Express,” one of its two upcoming albums that O’Neill described as “kind of gospel meets blues meets rock.” “We’re playing some new songs this year,” he continued. “We love writing, we love recording, but some of the songs aren’t really born until you play it live.”

Furthur keeps Dead's legacy alive R E V I E W

PHOTOS BY JASON RIEDMILLER

By Ryan O’Malley

Weekender Correspondent WILKES-BARRE TWP. — The last time Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh and guitarist Bob Weir played Mohegan Sun Arena, it was for The Dead 2009 Spring Tour, and it seemed like the last time the two would hit this area together after some lackluster reviews. Instead, the duo reconfigured with a new lineup and name, Furthur, and has been keeping the Dead’s music and legacy alive with stellar live shows, including the one at the arena Saturday, Nov. 5. Getting the night going with the upbeat “Hell in a Bucket,” the band wasted little time in showcasing how tight it’s become with flawless jamming including some beautiful interplay between lead guitarist John Kadlecik and keyboardist Jeff Chimenti. After a tight “Mississippi Half Step” and a run through the new Weir number “Big Bad Blues,” Kadlecik

Furthur performs at Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Twp. Saturday, Nov. 5. delivered one of the shows highlights with a touching “Althea.” Breezing through a swift version of Johnny Cash’s “Big River,” Furthur revisited its homage to The Beatles from its spring tour (when it covered “Abbey Road” in its entirety), by digging out the chestnut “Mean Mr. Mustard.” Wrapping up the first set was a slower “The Music Never Stopped,” that segued into a thunderous “Casey Jones” which

saw the band turning the classic into a ripping closer with an almost out-of-control frenzied ending. In a bit of a surprise, the second set fooled most people by kicking off with the presumed encore of “One More Saturday Night.” Certainly a nice move taking care of the one song everyone expected early in the night. After a brief stop, Furthur did what it does best and let the

BOB WEIR music take over by unleashing a non-stop six-song segue beginning with a spot-on take of The Band’s “The Weight” with Weir and Kadlecik alternating verses. Easily the second-set highlight, an upbeat “Estimated Prophet” had one of the better vocal performances from Weir, before singing duties turned over to 71-year-old Lesh for a searing “Eyes of the World.” In some-

thing that’s become characteristic for Furthur, “Eyes” meshed into a thumping “Fire on the Mountain,” sans the normal lead-in of “Scarlet Begonias.” Nonetheless, Saturday’s version featured some tight grooves from drummer Joe Russo and some exquisite organ work from Chimenti. Following a blistering take of the early-era “Viola Lee Blues,” with beautiful harmony work by vocalists Jeff Pehrson and Sunshine Garcia Becker, the band again dipped into The Beatles catalogue for a long “Dear Prudence” before wrapping up the set proper with the fan-friendly “Help on the Way/Slipknot!/ Franklin’s Tower.” After a brief break and Lesh’s standard “organ donor rap,” Furthur capped off the night with a haunting “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” the perfect ending to a nearly perfect night. If Saturday’s show did anything other than give several thousand people a reason to party, it showed that the Grateful Dead’s music has been thriving for nearly a half century. With the energetic respect Furthur pays to that legacy, there are no chances of it slowing down. W

Sensing the future I

n the sci-fi movie “Avatar,” the human characters were able to experience an alien world through the use of advanced technology. While the sort of immersive experience shown in “Avatar” may be a ways off, we have gotten closer to making it a reality. For years, we’ve had the ability to build remote-controlled robots and devices that could see or hear for us from far away. That’s two senses down, three to go — not bad, but hardly immersive. But recently, scientists in Japan have tipped the scales and brought the sense of touch into the mix. And they’ve thrown some technology used in displaying

W E DN E S DAY

3-D virtual reality imagery in for good measure. They’re calling the combination of sight, hearing and touch “telexistence.” Using a 3-D/virtual reality display, a user can control the robot, called the TELESAR V, seeing what it sees, hearing what it hears, and most interestingly, feeling what it feels. In the past, the technology had been limited to pressure sensitivity, you could tell when the sensor was touching something, but that was about it. Now, things like temperature, shape and a limited degree of texture sensitivity have been added. This might not seem like a big deal, but anyone who’s done fine mechanical work will

tell you that being able to feel is in some cases as important as being able to see what’s going on. For dangerous mechanical work or sensitive surgeries, the technology opens up avenues of research that were previously unexplored and brings a new dimension to the concept of “telepresence.” The research group has stated that its goal is to “make you feel as if you’re really in another place.” How likely is it that the general public will get to experience this sort of technology any time soon? The surprising answer is that it’s possible to buy a remotecontrol “robot” that can see and hear and roam freely for just a

ALBUM REVIEWS Peaceful Puscifer

Maynard James Keenan just loves to keep himself busy. As if fronting two immensely popular bands (Tool/A Perfect Circle) and having his own vineyard wasn’t enough to keep him busy, he recently released “Conditions of My Parole,” the second album from his other side project, Puscifer. Delivered using a stream-of-consciousness style, the album is admittedly a bit all over the place, however it is also a brilliant way for Keenan to provide some insight into his process and explore other ways to deliver a message without being limited by the styles of his other bands.

The majority of “Conditions of My Parole” has a light and airy feel, with Keenan’s vocals laid over a varying array of synthesizer sounds and preprogrammed drum beats. Tracks such as “Monsoons,” “Oceans” and “Horizons” are the textbook definition of mood music and should appeal to fans of electronica. Only a few songs (such as “Toma” or “Telling Ghosts”) break away from that calm and put some fire in the music and serve to punctuate and contrast the feel of the rest of the album. In addition to creating a different mood and feel with the

This Is Hell “Black Mass” Rating: W W 1/2

This Is Hell's wild intensity As the follow up to the dark massacre “Weight of the World,” hardcore thrash metal outfit This Is Hell’s latest effort is even more belligerent than the last. The Long Island, N.Y., metal veterans — bassist Pieter van den Berg, guitarist/vocalist Rick Jime-

music, the song lyrics are remarkably simple and entirely without any of the typical “what is the meaning of …” type of interpretation that is too prevalent in music. Adding this to peaceful, ambient music creates an album which allows the listener to do just that: Listen. While fans expecting the heaviness, power and rage of either Tool or A Perfect Circle might be somewhat disappointed with “Conditions of My Parole,” they would also do themselves a favor to at least listen to it a few times in order to see another side of Keenan. Likewise, Keenan should be applauded for daring to push boundaries and not only explore other methods of expression but to have the courage to share it with an audience that may or may not be receptive to hearing it. -- Michael Irwin Weekender Correspondent

nez, vocalist Travis Reilly and drummer Mike Sciulara — have definitely upped their game on this very intense one, resulting in a downright vicious album that brings an unruly intensity from the start. From the beginning of the album, This Is Hell is relentless in the extreme delivery of its music. The opening track, “Acid Rain,” launches the album with an aggressive start, letting listeners know exactly what to expect out of each of the nine tracks that follow. The title track starts with a somber guitar solo, and then launches into a ferocious hardcore song. Reilly’s vocals are incredibly forceful on this album, as he verbally assaults listeners with severe and brutal lyrics. Overall, “Black Mass” is a great hardcore album. This is Hell demonstrates that it is considered hardcore veterans for good reason. However, just like most hardcore albums, it’s not for everyone. It takes a certain type of band to write music this aggressive, and it also takes a certain type of listener to enjoy it. -- Lisa Schaeffer Weekender Correspondent

Cass McCombs “Humor Risk” Rating: W W

Too much 'Risk' Cass McCombs gained a degree of credibility with his April debut, “Wit’s End,” when it garnered sparkling reviews from Spin and The New York Times. It seems a little early for a follow-up album, but McCombs doesn’t seem to be the type to play by the rules, thus making it no surprise that his sophomore offering, “Humor Risk,” just recently drop-

RATING:

“Stereo Hearts” 4. Maroon 5/Christina Aguilera: “Moves Like Jagger” 3. David Guetta/Usher: “Without You” 2. Adele: “Someone Like You” 1. Foster The People: “Pumped Up Kicks”

ped. “Humor Risk” has a comforting sound, but it’s almost too calming and serene. Many of the songs, including the astutely titled “Meet Me at the Mannequin Gallery,” “To Every Man His Chimera” and “The Living Word” have a stalled feel. In fact, much of the album could be, in its simplest terms, the musical equivalent of swimming through a pool full of caramel. The sound quality gives the feeling that the album is being played on a phonograph, the irony of which was no doubt the point, and this is especially noticeable on “Mariah.” McCombs’ greatest attribute is his storytelling ability, which he puts to good use on the absurdly lengthy “Mystery Mail,” and his hooks are nothing to scoff at. After listening to “Love Thine Enemy,” one is left to spend an entire evening chanting those very words without even realizing it. The peppy “Robin Egg Blue” sends a tiny jolt through the middle of the album, but it’s not enough to lift the stoic, staid atmosphere established in every other track. As a whole, “Humor Risk” is too much of a risk. McCombs relies too heavily on his lyrics and not enough on serious beats and true music. He only proves himself as a poet, not a musical artist. --Stephanie DeBalko Weekender Staff Writer

“I kind of like to sing about getting over the blues and celebrating getting past the blues.” Sterling Koch

hen Sterling Koch set out to record his new CD, “Slide Ruler,” the blues guitarist decided he wanted to make it his dream record. He thought of all of the people he’d like to work with on the project, he laid out a plan, and he made it happen. And fans of the genre should certainly like what they hear. Koch, 55, a native of Conyngham Valley, near Hazleton, now lives in Pottsville. “Slide Ruler” is his fourth album and follows “Steel Guitar Blues,” “Steelin’ Home” and “How I Spent My Summer Vacation.” The new CD features blues bassist Tommy Shannon, who has played with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Johnny Winter, and drummer Chet McCracken of the Doobie Brothers. It was co-produced by Bret Alexander of The Badlees and even local music icon George Graham of WVIA-FM was involved in the mastering. A lot of talent was involved with the record. “That was the idea for the album,” says Koch. “As I’ve gotten older, you start wondering if it’s going to be your last record,

such as Johnny Lee Hooker, Otis Rush, Elmore James and Santo & Johnny. “We started with a list of 20 to 25 songs, and kind of whittled that down to either songs that I had an affinity to, lyrically, or just things that really worked well in my live set. Probably the biggest thing that I worked on with this album was my vocals and trying to find songs that I can relate to, and express the feeling of the song to an audience.” The album is available at CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon.com. On Monday, Nov. 21, Koch will perform on PA Live on WBRETV. The show airs at 4 p.m. Koch says that he hopes listeners find the music uplifting. “People that aren’t really familiar or aren’t really into the blues always think the blues is always sad and slow,” he says. “But I kind of like to sing about getting over the blues and celebrating getting past the blues. Hopefully, people will just enjoy it and get a good positive listen out of it.”

movie review By Pete Croatto

Rating: W W 1/2

Weekender Correspondent

Ben Stiller, left, as Josh Kovacs and Eddie Murphy as Slide in a scene from ‘Tower Heist.’

'Heist' doesn't pay off D

irected by Brett Ratner (“Rush Hour”), “Tower Heist” turns the Bernie Madoff scandal into a fun tale of working class revenge and little more. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, except that the movie teases us with its potential. With more smarts and some sharper humor, this could have marked Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy’s grand return to comedy. Josh Kovacs (Stiller) manages a luxury apartment, which houses New York City’s elite. The Queens native excels at his job, so much so that the tenants’ lives have become his life. He keeps them on schedule, steers them away from trouble and

makes sure their favorites are on hand. The tenants like him, including billionaire Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda), a friendly master of the universe who insists that he’s just an Astoria boy like Josh. When Shaw is arrested for an epic level of financial impropriety, Josh is sickened: Shaw invested the Tower’s employees’ pension money. Now, it’s all gone. Furious, Josh demands answers from Shaw, who doesn’t care. Josh loses his cool — and his job — but there is a silver lining: The Feds can’t find Shaw’s $20 million safety net. Josh knows it is hidden somewhere in Shaw’s penthouse

apartment, so he recruits two former somewhat competent employees (Casey Affleck, Michael Pena), a down-on-his-luck former tenant (Matthew Broderick), and a career criminal (Murphy) to get inside and grab the loot. What could go wrong? Lots, of course, but we knew that. “Tower Heist” is the kind of action-packed, quick-talking, big-budget comedy that Hollywood excels at making. A lot of the credit goes to Stiller and Murphy, who shelve their tired, profitable personas. Stiller ditches the bellicose neurotic act to convincingly play a workingclass stiff with a slight Noo Yawk accent. After years of

relentlessly positioning himself as a family-friendly star, Murphy finally returns to what made him a comedic legend nearly 30 years ago: Poetic profanity delivered with charisma. Murphy and Stiller may be the headliners, but “Tower Heist” is really an ensemble piece. This is shocking considering Ratner was primarily responsible for unleashing a shrieking, scenerychewing Chris Tucker onto the masses. Alda summons up the right amount of WASP-y selfrighteousness as the arrogant Shaw, and Broderick steals his scenes as the relentlessly mopey accomplice. There are pros everywhere you look, from Tea Leoni as Stiller’s flirty FBI agent foil to Gabourey Sidibe (“Precious”) as a Jamaican maid, complete with preposterous accent. Jeff Nathanson and Ted Griffin’s script zips along, keeping the plot’s focus on the heist and

not on riffing or romantic interests. “Tower Heist” is entertaining, but it never grabs us by the collar and wows us as a comedy or as an action movie. It’s wonderful to see Murphy in a comedy that doesn’t cast him as a talking donkey, but his full potential cannot be harvested in a PG-13 movie. Ratner, no craftsman, at least knows how to pace the proceedings, but almost too well: The climactic scene, where the crew tries to maneuver a sports car onto an elevator, has no real payoff — which is proven minutes later. That’s not the best way to leave an audience wanting more. It is an effective way to prevent a movie from becoming more than a pleasant afterthought.

he twisted depths of Chuck Palahniuk’s mind never cease to amaze a captive reader. Known most notably for “Fight Club,” his 1996 book that was turned into a movie of the same name starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, Palahniuk is a writer who bleeds biting sarcasm and inappropriate humor. With his most recent offering, “Damned,” the seasoned Palahniuk gets another chance to prove his worth — and nearly knocks it out of the park. “Damned” is the narrative of the recently deceased 13year-old Madison Spencer. After dying from what she believes to have been a marijuana overdose, Madison finds herself in Hell, a place Palahniuk initially paints as dismal and gruesome. Candy is the currency (really) and geographical landmarks such as Dandruff Desert and the Great Ocean of Wasted Sperm serve

as sights and attractions. As the story progresses, the reader starts to think that perhaps Hell, or at least Palahniuk’s version of it, isn’t so bad after all. For starters, all the most fascinating celebrities are there — Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Jim Morrison, among others — and once one learns to let go of their earthly identity, it doesn’t seem difficult to build a new “life” even amid such dispiriting surroundings. Madison hooks up with a crew of characters pulled straight out of “The Breakfast Club,” which includes a nerd, the popular girl, the jock and the punk. Through a series of chapters that are a little too reminiscent of Judy Blume’s “Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret,” Madison holds a one-way conversation with Satan while spilling the details of her life as the product of a celebrity marriage. She also seems to harbor a growing fondness for her fellow damned compatriots. “Damned” is full of contextual humor that would seem in poor taste in any other circumstance, such as in the case of the references to deceased child beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey. But the author has a knack for saying what everyone is thinking, even if it’s not always politically correct, and his snide, quiet humor is part of what makes Madison such an amusing cohort in exploring the underworld. The book reaches a weird place near the end, where our heroine has a coming-of-age that involves brutally assaulting Nazi Germany’s Adolph Hitler in addition to a cast of history’s most violent and overly confident rulers and warriors. It seems Palahniuk loses his footing at this point, and while it’s heartwarming to see Madison take hold of her future, even in Hell, the sudden prowess and confidence seems to come from an undeveloped place. That slight plot hiccup aside, the seedy underbelly of Palahniuk’s psyche comes to life in “Damned” in a beautifully misshapen, bizarrely entertaining manner.

ashion isn’t just shoes, baubles and the occasional chapeau coolly resting on the lithe frame of some beguiling young subject. Sure, that’s part of it, but the fashion industry wasn’t just built on fads and fedoras. And if you asked 21-year-old Julia Frakes, a University of Scranton student and regular contributor to some of the most esteemed fashion and culture magazines in the country, she’d tell you there’s more to the industry than meets the eye. “Politics and history and art history and psychology are not disassociated,” the articulate Frakes explained. “For me, every collection is sort of a time capsule, and it’s always amazing how there’s just this interconnected nature betwixt all the collections. And I think that it’s so revealing of that point in time in which they’re displaying it, in terms of socioeconomic levels, in terms of whether we’re at war, whether we’re at peace.” Frakes’ image graces the pages of the October 2011 issue of Vogue magazine, as a model and contributor for a story written by Lynn Yaeger and photographed by Patrick Demarchelier called “Sparkling Personalities.” “When I moved to the city when I was 17, (Yaeger) really was just a wonderful role model of sorts, and really watched over me,” Frakes said. “So it was really fulfilling to be in a story written by Lynn Yaeger and obviously, being photographed by Patrick Demarchelier is an honor beyond words.” For the young writer, stylist, model (though she’s quick to point out that modeling has never been her ambition) and psychology major, the story is another notch on a widening belt of career achievements. When she was just 17, Frakes moved to New York City in part to write for Paper magazine’s Fashion Schmashion blog after being contacted on Facebook by the editor-in-chief, David Hershkovits, who read her musings on her fashion blog, Bunny Bisous, and liked what he saw.

Pictured above, a shot from the October 2011 Vogue article featuring Kingston resident and fashion virtuoso, Julia Frakes. Since then, she’s been tweeting and posting on her personal Tumblr account, in addition to contributing to publications like Dossier Journal and Teen Vogue. She was part of the Gap China campaign, which was photographed by Annie Leibovitz in August 2010, and was featured in a March 2011 Teen Vogue retrospective celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Marc by Marc Jacobs line. Frakes’ forte for textiles probably has something to do with her roots, dating from her late grandfather’s former business to her mother’s contemporary boutique in Kingston, Jane Leslie & Co. “(My grandfather) owned Alperin, Inc. with his brothers, which was a manufacturing corporation,” Frakes said. “And they made pants, for Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren and the U.S. Postal Service. So growing up, I sort of had this really tactile appreciation for the making of a garment.”

Frakes, who now resides primarily in Kingston, commuting to school and New York City when work beckons, also has a deep appreciation for NEPA. “I’ve had a lot of really crazy wonderful moments, and I’m very thankful for them, but I really enjoy being in Pennsylvania,” she said. Whether she’s discussing fashion, psychology (her selfdeclared true love), politics or Scranton, Frakes brings with each topic a palpable sense of enthusiasm. Her goal, someday, is to possibly bring all of her varying fascinations and occupations together. “It’s almost daunting to even consider, but hopefully where I will be 10 years from now, if all goes well, is just to feel fulfilled,” she said.

WTF!?

By Jeff and Amanda of 98.5 KRZ

Special to the Weekender

Submitted by John Phillips

SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO ASK,

WHAT THE F***!?

SEND US YOUR “WTF” PHOTOS TO APPEAR IN THE WEEKENDER’S WTF!? FEATURE.

Jeff’s Bitch: Facebook. The new American pastime, or if you feel like I do at times, just one more thing I need to keep checking and responding to every day. But it’s so popular, I just can’t see it ever going away (Tom at MySpace might disagree). But I have a few suggestions that I think are common sense, but maybe I’m trying to be too logical. In my way of thinking, if you want to be friends with someone, shouldn’t your profile picture be your face? As in the name, Facebook? Because of my radio show, I get more people asking to be friends than the allowed amount of 5,000. I truly would love to say “yes” to anyone who enjoys the show or has had some dealings with me in the past. But there’s that nasty limit, so I simply ignore the following: No picture of you. A picture of your pet instead of you. A picture of a pretty sunset instead of you. A picture of a funny slogan instead of you. A picture of a sports team instead of you. And worst of all: No pic at all! This is like moving to a new town, calling up your new neighbor, and saying you’d like to get to know him, but he

In my way of thinking, if you want to be friends with someone, shouldn’t your profile picture be your face? Jeff’s Bitch

can’t know what you look like. (Wait a minute, I just realized that happened on “Home Improvement,” but you get the idea.) By the way, I do make exceptions for pics of your babies and your little people running around your house. I’m not a monster. So maybe I’ll see you on Facebook one of these days. Smile! Amanda’s Brag: After having a string of horrible customer service experiences in the past month, I have to give some props to the Sephora in the WilkesBarre JCPenney. I swear, for a while I thought I was cursed by the shopping gods. It was one thing after another. I’m talking a ton of horrible customer service experiences and service at a handful of local stores that will remain nameless … since I continue to go to each of them, despite the inconsistent service. Then, while in search of the perfect gift for my best friend’s birthday, Sephora

brought it. The sales lady was perfectly helpful without being pushy, offered to gift wrap the incredible Urban Decay eye shadow palette I chose as a gift and was delightful when I asked her a ton of questions about some products I was interested in. Amen! I was starting to lose faith in all stores. It seemed as if no one really cared about the customer anymore. (Wow, I’m starting to sound like Jeff now.) Seriously though, have you noticed how bad some businesses have gotten when it comes to fairness and pleasing the customer? Thank god for Sephora once again. Not only are your products the highlight of many women’s mornings, your perfectly manicured team is equally as enjoyable. Oh yeah, and who doesn’t love free fragrance samples? Nods for Sephora! W Hear Jeff and Amanda Bitch & Brag on Fridays at 3:30 p.m. on 98.5 KRZ.

T

wo weeks ago, one of my best friends from college got married. Thanks to an open bar, the night ended with me sneaking into the hotel’s kitchen where I ate cold chopped bacon and huffed three bottles of whipped cream. All in all, it was a weekend of good, clean fun with some of my favorite people from my glory days. The only drama associated with the wedding was when I went to buy something to wear to it. Fully intending to dress to impress, I ventured off to the mall to find the perfect shirt and tie for the special occasion. After more than an hour of mixing and matching everything the store had, I finally found a winner. Then, right as I was pulling down my pants to change and leave, someone pounded on the fitting room door. “Excuse me, sir!” they shouted. “I need you to open this door immediately! I don’t care if you’re dressed or not.” I opened the door, petrified and stunned, hunched over with my pants to my knees, to find the sales associate standing there with a mall cop! The bitch was accusing me of trying to shoplift because I was taking too long in the dressing room. That’s what dressing rooms are

for, though, to try on clothes! How embarrassing! I would never shoplift … unless you consider lying about being a mall employee for a discount on your Auntie’s Anne’s pretzel shoplifting. Since the sales associate was as fat as Ricki Lake was before she lost all that weight so she could get a talk show, you would think she would have sympathy for someone having difficulty in a dressing room. What was her hurry for me to leave anyway? Was I delaying her from going home and eating her way into a diabetic coma? After I left, I walked past the store twice, flipping off the sales associate with thumb and all. Her jaw dropped, probably for the first time without a Snickers entering it. Sorry, Mom and Dad, for flipping off the girl who called a mall cop on me, even though I’m 25. But hey, my studentloan debt collector told me 25 is the new 21, so I’m just going to roll with that … W TV Guide wasn’t kidding when it called Justin Brown a real-life Van Wilder for skipping school to be on a reality show in Japan. He now shares his wildest adventures and life lessons while saying “Sorry, Mom & Dad…”

Christmas comes too early

I

love the holiday season. No, not exactly right. I love many things about it. Couldn’t care less about the gift giving in my direction. Love seeing the joy the things we send to the relatives bring, especially the grandchild, Haven. I love the meals, the cookies, the extra rations of grog. I do not love the rushing around, the shopping and the packing of gifts. It has led to considerable strife between the Long-Suffering Wife and me. It cuts into the grog consumption. I don’t love the hangovers. I love “Scrooged,” the notperfect-but-still-pretty-good Bill Murray depiction of the Charles Dickens classic. It’s a regular for me and always makes me weep. Especially if I have exceeded my ration of grog, a likely outcome after a shopping/wrapping/packing session with the Long-Suffering Wife. I love my Christmas music selection. I have, over the years, programmed several all-Christmas music stations. In doing so, I have become more than sick of “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” My personal collection is not what you’ll hear on the radio in large part. “Here comes Santy with his bag of shit” and that sort of tune always make me smile. But, having said all that, I was appalled and then furious when I heard the Pennsylvania Lottery run its “Happy Holidays” commercial for the first time on the day that the calen-

dar page just turned to November, by the way. First of all I hate the “Happy Holidays” sentiment. Say what you really mean, and you risk offending the Kwanza and Jewish among you, they say, whoever “they” are. I think that they don’t care as much as you might think. And I know I don’t. Wish me Merry Christmas, please — but not quite yet. But really, the background music for the Pennsylvania Lottery commercial is “The 12 days of Christmas.” You get it? There are Christmas wreaths and trees and candy canes and … Wait, I just heard a commercial for Chex Mix that has the “Carol of the Bells” in it. And another one … and another one. Shoot me now. I know, this is a pretty standard rant, where the greedy merchants rush the season, and I’m not ready for it. But damn, it seems really early. Lucky for me, it’s always time for grog.

The No. 1 rule is to never pair a fur coat with an overthe-top party dress in a loud print. end up looking tacky or like you’re trying to hard. In fact, go the opposite route: Use a fur coat to give a fancy touch to a rather plain outfit. Also keep things modern; never pair fur with anything too vintage or you’ll look costume-y. If wearing fur reminds you too much of playing dress up in your grandmother’s closet, than don’t go for the full-on coat or jacket. Fur vests or hats are similar options to achieve an equally glamorous look. And as a personal favor to the animals, please buy faux fur this season. There’s no reason to spend the extra dough on something that is not worth the price of an animal’s life. There are plenty of great replicas that are just as cozy and classy looking. W

ersonally, as an animal lover, I was a little less than enthused when I saw a significant increase of fur coats on the runways and in magazines for this fall/ winter. The fur trend has been around forever, but was popularized years ago when worn by the starlets of the 1920s. It was seen as a musthave for any glamorous, sophisticated women back then, and the trend continued through the 1960s, before it trickled out when people began to see it as over-the-top and, overall, a waste of money. But now, as fashion tends to come back around, wearing fur is in again, along with the tricky decision of how to wear it without looking too overdone. When buying fur, pay attention to the tones within the fur. It may seem obvious, but most furs have different shades in them, and it’s important to play up those tones within the rest of your clothes. Fur maxi coats are probably the trickiest thing to pull off. The No. 1 rule is to never pair a fur coat with an over-the-top party dress in a loud print, like cheetah. You will just

C

arey Clark started designing jewelry as a hobby last October, but it wouldn’t be just a hobby for long. After posting some of her designs on Facebook, Carey began getting requests from friends and family to make them original designs. Now with a successful shop, C.C. Jewelry, on Etsy, Carey has positioned herself as an established designer. Rather than just creating and selling jewelry designs, however, Carey has an even bigger goal in mind: To give back to her community. Donating to local causes and constantly on the search for more, Carey Clark’s philanthropic approach makes her a unique local designer you should get to know. Community involvement: In the past year, I participated in the Zachary Shoemaker Dodge Ball Tournament for a charity event, as well as donated jewelry to another charity named Fighting for Fran. I am currently looking for more local charities to donate to — I love helping people and will donate to any charity, but I prefer to donate to local people in need because I enjoy attending the events and meeting those who are being helped. It’s a more personal involvement. Hobbies: Jewelry design, traveling, hiking, photography, staying active! Favorite thing about the area: Ricketts Glen. People take for granted what is right in our backyard. People come from all over to see the waterfalls and many of the people in this area have yet to even visit Ricketts Glen. Hiking the paths and taking pictures couldn’t be more relaxing and inspiring for me. Favorite movie: “The Notebook” — I know, cliche. One thing most people don’t know about me: That I have skydived twice. Once in Pennsylvania and once in Hawaii, and I will not be stopping there! I’m a risk taker and adrenaline junkie. One thing I’ve always wanted to do: I’ve always wanted to travel to Africa. I love the beauty, culture and purity of the country. I will definitely travel there in the near future. If your best friend were to describe you, what would he/she say? Straight from the horse’s mouths: Him: “I would describe you as unique, in that you’re gorgeous, yet don’t exploit it. A loving mother first, yet fun and spontaneous. Creative and adventurous, yet still well-grounded and loyal to all who have been lucky enough to gain your friendship.” Her: “I would describe you as a sweet person, very active and adventurous and a little crazy at times (aka skydiving), I can talk to you about anything, and you treat people with respect.”

By Caeriel Crestin

Weekender Correspondent SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You think you know what digging deep means, but the truth is you have reserves of strength to draw upon which have simply never occurred to you. It may not be your usual pattern to look outside yourself for sources of support and power, but sometimes, when you’re feeling weak or lost, they’re your best assets. You may not quite believe that these people are really able or willing to be there for you — but they are. Probably the only way you’ll really buy it is if you give them a chance to step up and come through. This week, try that. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) You’re famously easygoing and flexible, but sometimes there’s just no room for compromise. You can be either here or there, but there’s no common ground between the two points; in fact, there’s probably just a yawning chasm there, with no place to safely stand. That means that with this disagreement one of you is simply going to have to bend and come around to accepting the other’s point of view. This might be one of those agreeto-disagree situations, leaving this decision tabled indefinitely. But if that’s not the case — if you must come to terms now — you need to decide whether or not one of you will relent and join the other’s camp. If you’re 100 percent positive that’ll never happen, you may have no choice but to simply walk away. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) When the unexpected happens, you often feel responsible, even if you actually had nothing to do with it (except via the most roundabout and convoluted reasoning). There’s not much you can do when someone behaves badly, except cope with the fallout with grace, compassion and most importantly, humor. That’s your job this week — no more, no less. Don’t take on anything that’s not really yours. Just clean up the mess and try to make people smile while you do so. Succeed, and it’ll make this chapter one you’ll look back on with fondness instead of horror.

behavior, but that would involve also giving back what you received and probably damaging your relationship to boot. The alternative, unfortunately, may be just as lame: Giving them what they want, gracefully and without resentment. Like it or not, those are your best-case outcomes. Don’t waste a lot of time trying to concoct a third, more palatable one. Just pick one and get on with it. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) You Fish are wonderfully sweet but notoriously clueless about how some other people’s minds work. Guessing what someone’s thinking or feeling can be extremely difficult for you, and in the past has led to some embarrassing gaffes. So stop guessing, particularly because even your best guesses this week are probably going to be so far off base that it’s almost funny. As intuitive as you often are, you’re no mind reader. If you want to know what’s going on inside someone’s head, you need to quit trying to figure it out on your own and just ask them. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) You like to give people what they want, and so when they ask nicely, it’s sometimes ridiculously hard for you to say no — even when what they want is something you’d really rather not part with, or would regret losing once it was gone. Being so generous is mostly a wonderful quality, but you need to be careful about learning your limits and saying, “I’m sorry, I can’t,” when necessary. Unfortunately, no one can teach you where this

line lies or how to enforce those boundaries. It’s something you simply have to learn and do for yourself. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) You’re a traditionalist, so you generally look for reasonably conventional solutions to your problems. However, sometimes the best answers lie well outside the box. That’s certainly the case this week. Will you settle for a half-assed temporary fix to your difficulties, just because it’s something familiar and relatively easy? Or will you have the creativity and courage to find the answers that will resolve this stuff once and for all, in a much more satisfying way? I hope so, because if you don’t, you’ll just be back exactly here in a few months’ time. Don’t stubbornly settle for the familiar stopgap measure. Seek out the real solution, no matter where it lies. GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You’re not afraid of crazy, so plenty of the people in your life possess entertaining doses of quirky wackiness. However, there are times when their idiosyncrasies boil over into truly obnoxious annoyances. Try not to get too worked up about it; after all, you knew this potential when you invited these people into your life. That doesn’t mean you need to let their wild sides make a mess of things for you; luckily, instead of reacting with fear or anger, there’s a way to inject rationality, grace and humor into the situation, as weird as it might be. Find it. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) I love your big heart, Leo. It’s one of your most wonderful qualities. You Lions are unfailingly generous when you can afford to be — or think you can afford to be. Learning to tell the difference is a tricky lesson, but in these hard times you can’t afford to help everyone who asks, at least not to the degree they probably need. This isn’t about putting yourself first. In fact, putting others first is still a wonderful thing to do. But include yourself in the big picture, lest you be the one asking for help the next time around. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) There are certain things you can accelerate just by putting that intention forward and being efficient. Other things, however, simply can’t (or shouldn’t) be rushed. This thing is basically a pregnancy; it will take as long as it takes, and you actually don’t want it to be over early. Therefore you must be patient and bide your time and let things ripen as they’re supposed to. I know that just sitting idle and waiting isn’t your style, but you’ve got to do it anyway, because trying to make things unfold faster will only yield an outcome you quite simply don’t want. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) Being fabulously wealthy would be great. Even if you’re not, neither are you as poor as you think you are. It’s important to enjoy yourself in a deeper way than you have been, once in a while. This is about high-quality fun. You expend a lot of your resources on little things (and part of happiness right now is enjoying those little things), but occasionally your soul could do with a nice big extravagant splurge. You can afford it, even if means you must tighten your belt slightly in other areas. Do so; it’s worth it. W To contact Caeriel, e-mail sign.language.astrology@gmail.com.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) I don’t blame you for not liking the strings you found attached to some generosity you gratefully accepted recently. To be fair, the givers should have made their expectations more obvious or transparent before they made their offer, but now that it’s done, your choices are limited. You can call them on their slightly shady

Sometimes you worry about how the truth could change things. Since you infamously resist change, you’re sometimes reluctant to reveal stuff that could rock the boat or otherwise change things up. I understand your anxiety about what such revelations could do to your life. However, biting your tongue in this situation from fear of the fallout from your words isn’t ethical, and you wouldn’t feel good about it later. That means when it comes time to speak the truth — and you’ll know it when the time comes — you must bolster your courage and simply do so.

Nay Last iPod download? “Sexy And I Know It” by LMFAO If you could have a one-night stand with anyone, no strings attached, who would it be? Luke Bilyk from Degrassi One thing you always keep in your purse? Lip gloss Worst dare someone made you do? Run around in the snow with my bathing suit What wouldn’t you do for a million dollars? Eat any type of insect
