J`[\gifa\ZkĂ&#x2039;j[\Ylkjfle[j Side project's debut sounds Xc`kkc\kffcfe\jfd\ a little too lonesome By MIKE OLCOTT #Z.*,&0-$055 The cardinal sin of a songwriter is to 5IFDBSEJOBMTJOPGBTPOHXSJUFSJTUP insult the intelligence of his audience. If JOTVMUUIFJOUFMMJHFODFPGIJTBVEJFODF*G you're on a stage shouting it from your ZPVSFPOBTUBHFTIPVUJOHJUGSPNZPVS soapbox, you damn well better have style TPBQCPY ZPVEBNOXFMMCFUUFSIBWFTUZMF that can sell. UIBUDBOTFMM This is the curious part of Daniel James' 5IJTJTUIFDVSJPVTQBSUPG%BOJFM+BNFT new solo project, Worried Well. The forOFXTPMPQSPKFDU 8PSSJFE8FMM5IFGPS mer Sophomore Beat man spins off a side NFS4PQIPNPSF#FBUNBOTQJOTPGGBTJEF project with serious pop/punk cachet beQSPKFDUXJUITFSJPVTQPQQVOLDBDIFUCF hind him, and produces a sack of cliches IJOEIJN BOEQSPEVDFTBTBDLPGDMJDIFT and under-cooked hooks. BOEVOEFSDPPLFEIPPLT This creative apathy rears its head all 5IJTDSFBUJWFBQBUIZSFBSTJUTIFBEBMM over the Worried Well eponymous debut. PWFSUIF8PSSJFE8FMMFQPOZNPVTEFCVU In "Remember to Press Play," over a tepid *Oi3FNFNCFSUP1SFTT1MBZ wPWFSBUFQJE acoustic progression, James drops "I'm BDPVTUJDQSPHSFTTJPO +BNFTESPQTi*N never more confused/ Than when I'm OFWFSNPSFDPOGVTFE5IBOXIFO*N trying to talk to you," and a baker's dozen USZJOHUPUBMLUPZPV wBOEBCBLFSTEP[FO more uninspired couplets. NPSFVOJOTQJSFEDPVQMFUT "A Monster Named Paranoia" forcei".POTUFS/BNFE1BSBOPJBwGPSDF feeds a half-baked Radiohead rip-off in a GFFETBIBMGCBLFE3BEJPIFBESJQPGGJOB song about paranoia. In an unforgiving TPOHBCPVUQBSBOPJB*OBOVOGPSHJWJOH music industry, nothing's more toxic than NVTJDJOEVTUSZ OPUIJOHTNPSFUPYJDUIBO predictability. Be anything but obvious. QSFEJDUBCJMJUZ#FBOZUIJOHCVUPCWJPVT What's frustrating about "Worried Well" 8IBUTGSVTUSBUJOHBCPVUi8PSSJFE8FMMw is that James has a nice voice, and most of JTUIBU+BNFTIBTBOJDFWPJDF BOENPTUPG the tunes start out promisingly. UIFUVOFTTUBSUPVUQSPNJTJOHMZ But while it's easy to empathize with #VUXIJMFJUTFBTZUPFNQBUIJ[FXJUI the broken man portrayed on the album, UIFCSPLFONBOQPSUSBZFEPOUIFBMCVN  it's no excuse for a flat musical effort.

I've grown up with a *WFHSPXOVQXJUIB lot of jazz playing around my house and a MPUPGKB[[QMBZJOHBSPVOENZIPVTFBOEB good deal of alternative music.

Out of the ether come funds to help local filmmakers


ard work, inspiration, dedication, perseverance, technical mastery – these are all the things it takes to make a movie, right? In a perfect world, maybe. But in this world, filmmakers need money, and as they’ve proven over the years, they’ll do frighteningly close to anything to get it. Robert Townsend and Kevin Smith famously risked debtor’s prison, maxing out a deck of credit cards. Robert Rodriguez actually sold his body (for medical experiments, but still) to raise the seven grand to make “El Mariachi.” For the indie director with a dream, it’s literally “beg, borrow or steal.” Or if you’re Gary Hauger of Maine’s Clockwork Pirate Productions, you just ask the Internet. Alongside writing partners Dana Sonnie, Andrew Hercock and T.J. Burgess, Hauger has been writing scripts for 15 years. He recently started a fundraising effort on the online “crowdsourcing” site Indiegogo with the goal of raising $2,000. From strangers. (As of this writing, the campaign has raised $465 of the $2,000 goal, with 54 days left.) So, apart from some traditional promo swag (T-shirts, tote bags etc.), what do potential donors get by helping? Describing Clockwork Pirate as a “screenwriting think tank,” Hauger explains that the money will be used primarily for the start-up costs (the company recently registered as an LLC with the state) and for, frankly, a little breathing room. “We are writers, focusing on developing the art of screenwriting,” he said. “Our goal is to perfect our craft and keep our focus tight and sharp. At the same time, all of us have full-time jobs, mortgages, families. Our expenses for the new film company – to set up the LLC, Internet, phone, Web, screenwriting software. When the money starts coming in, we can use it for the more creative side.” Lest anyone think this is just some pipe dream, Clockwork Pirate Productions recently announced that its feature film,

Dennis Perkins Indie Film

“Spirit Island” (a “smart horror film,” according to Hauger, about researchers running afoul of an ancient Native American entity) is scheduled to begin filming next fall, and has already lined up some recognizable faces to star. Hauger says letters of intent have been received from genre vets Patricia Tallman (1990’s “Night of the Living Dead”), Julia and Peter Benson (“Stargate Universe,” “Reaper,” “The Killing”) and the acclaimed Native American character actor Graham Greene (“Thunderheart,” “Dances with Wolves”). Hauger is excited about the prospects for Clockwork Pirate, and thankful for all the support thus far. “Even with times as tough as they are,” he said, “Maine, and Portland in particular, is a very supportive community.” Like all indie filmmakers, Hauger advises: “Work the day-to-day job, but you have to have a dream too.” Anyone interested in funding that dream should check out: Dennis Perkins is a freelance writer.

COMING TO LOCAL SCREENS NICKELODEON CINEMA ( nickelodeon.html) Thursday: “Hugo.” Can Martin Scorsese make a kids’ movie? Well, judging by the impressive previews, great cast (Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee) and, you know, the fact that he’s one of the greatest directors of all time, my money’s on yes. SPACE GALLERY ( Saturday: “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.” Alan Tudyk (“Firefly”) and Tyler Labine (“Reaper”) star as a couple of harmless yokels whose redneck-y but harmless buffoonery is mistaken for “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”brand serial killery by a vacationing gaggle of the most obnoxious college students ever in this bloody, clever horror comedy.

eginning in early fall, I put on hold FHJOOJOHJOFBSMZGBMM *QVUPOIPME carefree activities such as cheerDBSFGSFFBDUJWJUJFTTVDIBTDIFFS ing my school's football team and JOHNZTDIPPMTGPPUCBMMUFBNBOE shopping for winter clothes with friends. TIPQQJOHGPSXJOUFSDMPUIFTXJUIGSJFOET Instead, I and my fellow dancers at Maine *OTUFBE *BOENZGFMMPXEBODFSTBU.BJOF State Ballet, start focusing on snow and 4UBUF#BMMFU TUBSUGPDVTJOHPOTOPXBOE angels and sugarplums, and begin practicBOHFMTBOETVHBSQMVNT BOECFHJOQSBDUJD ing our parts for "The Nutcracker." JOHPVSQBSUTGPSi5IF/VUDSBDLFSw This year, rehearsals began in late Sep5IJTZFBS SFIFBSTBMTCFHBOJOMBUF4FQ tember, almost two months before the first UFNCFS BMNPTUUXPNPOUITCFGPSFUIFmSTU dancer would step on the stage of Merrill EBODFSXPVMETUFQPOUIFTUBHFPG.FSSJMM Auditorium to perform. "VEJUPSJVNUPQFSGPSN Rehearsals are held in the dance studios 3FIFBSTBMTBSFIFMEJOUIFEBODFTUVEJPT of the MSB school in Falmouth until the PGUIF.4#TDIPPMJO'BMNPVUIVOUJMUIF week before the performances begin. The XFFLCFGPSFUIFQFSGPSNBODFTCFHJO5IF studio spaces are small compared to MerTUVEJPTQBDFTBSFTNBMMDPNQBSFEUP.FS rill's stage, and sometimes, it's difficult to SJMMTTUBHF BOETPNFUJNFT JUTEJGmDVMUUP imagine that the dances will ultimately be JNBHJOFUIBUUIFEBODFTXJMMVMUJNBUFMZCF performed in that vast space. QFSGPSNFEJOUIBUWBTUTQBDF The initial rehearsals are slow, because 5IFJOJUJBMSFIFBSTBMTBSFTMPX CFDBVTF it is time-consuming to learn the steps as JUJTUJNFDPOTVNJOHUPMFBSOUIFTUFQTBT well as mark the places where dancers XFMMBTNBSLUIFQMBDFTXIFSFEBODFST need to be on stage. OFFEUPCFPOTUBHF Dancers are often looking around won%BODFSTBSFPGUFOMPPLJOHBSPVOEXPO dering where they should be during these EFSJOHXIFSFUIFZTIPVMECFEVSJOHUIFTF first rehearsals. But very quickly, places mSTUSFIFBSTBMT#VUWFSZRVJDLMZ QMBDFT are learned and dancers are able to focus BSFMFBSOFEBOEEBODFSTBSFBCMFUPGPDVT on the steps. POUIFTUFQT Linda Miele, artistic director, establishes -JOEB.JFMF BSUJTUJDEJSFDUPS FTUBCMJTIFT the rehearsal schedule by working backUIFSFIFBSTBMTDIFEVMFCZXPSLJOHCBDL wards from the dates of the performances. XBSETGSPNUIFEBUFTPGUIFQFSGPSNBODFT She blocks out the two weeks immediately 4IFCMPDLTPVUUIFUXPXFFLTJNNFEJBUFMZ before the shows begin for complete runCFGPSFUIFTIPXTCFHJOGPSDPNQMFUFSVO throughs of the ballet with the entire cast. UISPVHITPGUIFCBMMFUXJUIUIFFOUJSFDBTU Before then, dancers rehearse in groups #FGPSFUIFO EBODFSTSFIFBSTFJOHSPVQT according to their parts and under the BDDPSEJOHUPUIFJSQBSUTBOEVOEFSUIF direction of a ballet teacher. EJSFDUJPOPGBCBMMFUUFBDIFS This year, I will be an Arabian dancer in 5IJTZFBS *XJMMCFBO"SBCJBOEBODFSJO Act II of the ballet.

fter some shopping with my GUFSTPNFTIPQQJOHXJUINZ mom on a recent afternoon, NPNPOBSFDFOUBGUFSOPPO  we swung by JP's in Portland XFTXVOHCZ+1TJO1PSUMBOE for a few drinks to celebrate the GPSBGFXESJOLTUPDFMFCSBUFUIF bargains we had scored. CBSHBJOTXFIBETDPSFE We walked in shortly after 5 8FXBMLFEJOTIPSUMZBGUFS p.m. and grabbed two of the six QNBOEHSBCCFEUXPPGUIFTJY seats at the bar. Two pub tables TFBUTBUUIFCBS5XPQVCUBCMFT sit up to eight more people, but TJUVQUPFJHIUNPSFQFPQMF CVU it's definitely an intimate setting JUTEFmOJUFMZBOJOUJNBUFTFUUJOH probably best suited for a party QSPCBCMZCFTUTVJUFEGPSBQBSUZ oftwo. PGUXP Bartender Moriah Duval was #BSUFOEFS.PSJBI%VWBMXBT quick to greet us and ask what RVJDLUPHSFFUVTBOEBTLXIBU we'd like to drink. Mom ordered XFEMJLFUPESJOL.PNPSEFSFE the red sangria off the list of UIFSFETBOHSJBPGGUIFMJTUPG specialty drinks written on a TQFDJBMUZESJOLTXSJUUFOPOB chalkboard in the upper corner DIBMLCPBSEJOUIFVQQFSDPSOFS of the bar, but I was a little more PGUIFCBS CVU*XBTBMJUUMFNPSF indecisive. JOEFDJTJWF "Can I offer you a suggestion?" i$BO*PGGFSZPVBTVHHFTUJPO w Duval asked. %VWBMBTLFE I'm always game to hear what *NBMXBZTHBNFUPIFBSXIBU the bartenders like to recomUIFCBSUFOEFSTMJLFUPSFDPN mend. She started describing a NFOE4IFTUBSUFEEFTDSJCJOHB few of the specialty drinks, but I GFXPGUIFTQFDJBMUZESJOLT CVU* knew I wanted the lemon blueLOFX*XBOUFEUIFMFNPOCMVF berry martini as soon as she told CFSSZNBSUJOJBTTPPOBTTIFUPME me what was in it - gin mixed NFXIBUXBTJOJUoHJONJYFE with fresh lemon and a syrup XJUIGSFTIMFNPOBOEBTZSVQ that the bistro makes from fresh UIBUUIFCJTUSPNBLFTGSPNGSFTI blueberries and honey. CMVFCFSSJFTBOEIPOFZ With a skilled hand, she poured 8JUIBTLJMMFEIBOE TIFQPVSFE the gin and the drink's mixes into UIFHJOBOEUIFESJOLTNJYFTJOUP a shaker, shook it up and poured BTIBLFS TIPPLJUVQBOEQPVSFE it into a martini glass. Then she JUJOUPBNBSUJOJHMBTT5IFOTIF placed a vibrant yellow lemon QMBDFEBWJCSBOUZFMMPXMFNPO twist into the rich purple-blue UXJTUJOUPUIFSJDIQVSQMFCMVF hue of crushed berries and slid IVFPGDSVTIFECFSSJFTBOETMJE the glass my way. UIFHMBTTNZXBZ Mom and I clinked our glasses .PNBOE*DMJOLFEPVSHMBTTFT and sipped. The sweetness of BOETJQQFE5IFTXFFUOFTTPG the honey offset the tart taste UIFIPOFZPGGTFUUIFUBSUUBTUF of fresh blueberries and lemon, PGGSFTICMVFCFSSJFTBOEMFNPO  which almost masked the gin in XIJDIBMNPTUNBTLFEUIFHJOJO

UIFN 5IFFOUJSFUIJOHoUXPFHHT UXPTMJDFT The entire thing - two eggs, two slices PGUPBTU IBTIBOEIPNFGSJFToDPTU of toast, hash and home fries - cost $6.25.1 could have gotten hash browns *DPVMEIBWFHPUUFOIBTICSPXOT instead of home fries for the same price. JOTUFBEPGIPNFGSJFTGPSUIFTBNFQSJDF My dining companion ordered the .ZEJOJOHDPNQBOJPOPSEFSFEUIF hash browns, which were like two giant IBTICSPXOT XIJDIXFSFMJLFUXPHJBOU tater tots. She also got bacon, which UBUFSUPUT4IFBMTPHPUCBDPO XIJDI was nice and crisp - no hint of the XBTOJDFBOEDSJTQoOPIJOUPGUIF rubbery texture bacon sometimes gets SVCCFSZUFYUVSFCBDPOTPNFUJNFTHFUT when cooked improperly. XIFODPPLFEJNQSPQFSMZ The two-egg breakfast with bacon or 5IFUXPFHHCSFBLGBTUXJUICBDPOPS sausage (instead of hash) is $5.95 at Q TBVTBHF JOTUFBEPGIBTI JTBU2 Street. An egg-and-cheese sandwich 4USFFU"OFHHBOEDIFFTFTBOEXJDI on an English muffin is $2.50, while POBO&OHMJTINVGGJOJT XIJMF the same sandwich with bacon, ham or UIFTBNFTBOEXJDIXJUICBDPO IBNPS sausage is $2.95. TBVTBHFJT Eating at Q Street reminded me of all &BUJOHBU24USFFUSFNJOEFENFPGBMM the things I love about an old-fashioned UIFUIJOHT*MPWFBCPVUBOPMEGBTIJPOFE diner. In the ideal world of diners, the EJOFS*OUIFJEFBMXPSMEPGEJOFST UIF food is always good, so when you get GPPEJTBMXBZTHPPE TPXIFOZPVHFU "the usual," you know you won't be iUIFVTVBM wZPVLOPXZPVXPOUCF disappointed. EJTBQQPJOUFE The diner concept is also about com5IFEJOFSDPODFQUJTBMTPBCPVUDPN fort and ease. Q Street is located in a GPSUBOEFBTF24USFFUJTMPDBUFEJOB simple cinder-block building behind TJNQMFDJOEFSCMPDLCVJMEJOHCFIJOE Shaw's supermarket in the Mill Creek 4IBXTTVQFSNBSLFUJOUIF.JMM$SFFL business district. It's big for a diner and CVTJOFTTEJTUSJDU*UTCJHGPSBEJOFSBOE the layout is spread out, so you don't UIFMBZPVUJTTQSFBEPVU TPZPVEPOU feel crammed in. GFFMDSBNNFEJO

5IFSFTBMBSHFSPPNXIFOZPVGJSTU There's a large room when you first DPNFJO BDPVOUFSBSFB BOEUIFOB come in, a counter area, and then a MPOH OBSSPXFSTFBUJOHBSFBUIBUFOET long, narrower seating area that ends with seats in the front window. There XJUITFBUTJOUIFGSPOUXJOEPX5IFSF are always weekly newspapers to read BSFBMXBZTXFFLMZOFXTQBQFSTUPSFBE and a table with puzzles, games and BOEBUBCMFXJUIQV[[MFT HBNFTBOE crayons for the kiddies. DSBZPOTGPSUIFLJEEJFT "MUIPVHI*NBDSFBUVSFPGIBCJU * Although I'm a creature of habit, I have tried other Q Street favorites IBWFUSJFEPUIFS24USFFUGBWPSJUFT before. I've had the apple pancakes CFGPSF*WFIBEUIFBQQMFQBODBLFT ($7.25), which are giant, fluffy and full  XIJDIBSFHJBOU GMVGGZBOEGVMM of chunks of apple and cinnamon. You PGDIVOLTPGBQQMFBOEDJOOBNPO:PV won't need to eat the rest of the day.
