Toledo band tours with GWAR By Mighty Wyte

TOLEDO FREE PRESS STAR STAFF WRITER star@toledofreepress.com

What is more rad than going to a GWAR show? How about being on tour with the crazy sons-a-bitches? That is what Toledo’s Mobile Deathcamp (MDC) is doing right now. The Bloody Tour of Horror, which stops in 55 U.S. and Canadian cities, runs through the end of December. According to MDC bassist Boe Skadeland, “GWAR pulls a big crowd. The shows are good every night; it’s going awesome. We’re playing the Electric Factory in Philly and it holds 2,300 people and it will most likely be sold out. “The crowd’s response to MDC has been amazing. You couldn’t ask for any better response,” Skadeland said. “The fans really dig us because they like the direction of our music. It’s different than all the cookie-cutter stuff that’s out there.” MDC’s new CD “Black Swamp Rising” has been selling well at the shows. “People tell us it’s so awesome to hear music that doesn’t sound like everyone else,” Skadeland said. With momentum building, MDC has no plans of slowing down after this 55-show tour is finished. “We’re tryin’ to build the fanbase and get out to more and more people,” Skadeland said. “That’s the name of the game, you gotta be touring.”

After the tour ends in December, MDC will take only one week off. After its short break, MDC is off to California for a run of shows and to make appearances at this year’s National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) show. “We’re going to be playing shows in California in January and we’re taking local band Blood of The Prophets with us,” Skadeland said. “NAMM is the biggest music industry show in the country. It’s a big schmooze-fest and we’re going to hang with the people that sponsor us like Spector and Dean. It’s a chance to rub elbows with industry people.” Despite playing with heavy-hitters like GWAR and playing sold-out shows around the country, Skadeland said, “Frankie’s is still our favorite place to play. The vibe of the club is classic Toledo and the Toledo fans come out and dig us and they’re really cool people. There’s a lot of bands and people that come from Toledo and people don’t even know it.” The Bloody Tour of Horror will be making some stops within a few short hours of Toledo. On Oct. 13, the tour stops at The House of Blues in Cleveland, The Newport in Columbus on Oct. 27 and at Harpo’s in Detroit on Oct. 30. O

Spice and flavor Flame on the River offers Pakistani food Downtown. By Hannah Nusser Toledo Free Press Star Staff Writer star@toledofreepress.com

BEER OF THE MONTH

Introduced in 1983 as a lower alcohol, lower calorie version of Canada’s most popular brand, Labatt Blue Light quickly established itself as a favorite light beer. The pour itself increases anticipation for the taste as it has an attractive thick head, good amount of lacing and plenty of bubbles. The taste is crisp, clean and delicately balanced flavour with a slight sweetness and fruity character.

Formerly known as the Boody House, Flame on the River has received a dining room makeover, turning this former American grub spot into an exotic new dining experience. In hopes of attracting more business, owner Danny La Garza brought in new co-owner and executive chef Nasir Tausif. As always, the bar restaurant will serve lunch and dinner, but with a twist. While patrons can order American favorites like wraps, chicken wings, fries and salads, the revamped menu is primarily Pakistani classics. “I think everybody should come and try our food,” Tausif said. “They will love it.” With a new name and menu, Flame on the River unveiled its facelift at the Oct. 8 grand opening. It is now open for lunch and dinner and still offers a full bar. An expert in Pakistani dishes, Tausif moved to the United States from Pakistan in 1974 with his family. While attending the University of California he worked as a waiter in a five-star French restaurant. He worked his way up to a management position and worked in the fine dining industry for 15 years. Tausif said he always enjoyed working in the classy, formal atmosphere. “I kind of liked the environment,” he said. “Because the French restaurant is like five-star, black tie environment; very fine dining.” But it was always Tausif ’s dream to open his own Pakistani restaurant. In 1992 Tausif moved to Toledo with his family and they enjoyed the community so much they decided to stay. He said he found Indian restaurants, but no Pakistani eateries in the area; he viewed this as an opportunity to introduce patrons to an exotic new cuisine. “If I open a Pakistani restaurant I have more

chances to get people in, because it’s one of a kind,” he said. Tausif wanted to turn the former “dinette”style Boody House into an elegant dining room. The chairs and tablecloths have been replaced and diners will now eat by candlelight. Tausif said these small changes make all the difference in providing a chic, more formal mood. The building, located in the Fort Industry Square, is so beautiful it did not need remodeling, Tausif said. Anyone who likes Mediterranean or Indian cuisine will love Flame on the River, Tausif said. He is optimistic that patrons will appreciate the flavors of Pakistani cuisine. “They will prefer our food,” he said. “People need more spices [and] flavor.” Prepared in a tandoor clay oven, Flame on the River’s dishes include classic Pakistani flavors like garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, clove and cilantro. Tausif said dishes like traditional beef nihari, cooked in a spicy curry, pack a little more heat than most Indian curries. A special dish is chicken tikka, in which the chicken is marinated overnight in a signature yogurt and vinegar dressing. Tausif also recommends trying a lassi, a yogurt smoothie flavored with salt instead of sugar. Opposite the dining room, customers can enjoy a full bar with live jazz on Sundays from 5 – 9 p.m. Tausif recommends Flame on the River to anyone looking for a fun, formal atmosphere or to try something fresh and new. “I am very confident if they try our dishes they will always come back,” Tausif said. Flame on the River is located at 152 N. Summit St., across from the SeaGate Convention Centre and next to Promenade Park in Downtown Toledo. The dining room is open every day for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. O

3pmusic opens recording studio in Secor Building.

By Amy Biolchini

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer star@toledofreepress.com

Casey “3pm” Clark, the local half of electronic pop-rock duo Wideband Network, launched a new recording studio Oct. 1 in the Secor Building on Jefferson Avenue. 3pmusic Productions offers the gamut of services for any kind of client, whether they’re trying to make a demo CD or want to record their first album with their band, Clark said. “We’re trying to take it to the next level and really cultivate Toledo talent,” Clark said. “Any market, any genre.” The studio has one primarily vocal booth and another booth large enough to accommodate drums, guitar and bass. 3pmusic Productions is different than many of the recording studios in Toledo because it provides full production services, Clark said. A singer or songwriter can come to the studio and Clark will work their vocals into a song he constructs for them. Clark offers graphic design services for album covers, website development and video production, as well as voice-overs for projects, radio, TV, film and business services. The all-digital recording system produces content that can go directly online or to a variety of formats. According to Clark, 3pmusic Productions will work around the schedule and the budget constraints of its clients. “There may be some great talent out there but they don’t have $1,500 to throw down. I know how it is to be a struggling artist and to not have cash,” Clark said. The studio offers recording sessions in hourly or block time slots. To schedule a session or consultation, visit www.3pmusic.com or call (419) 944-6122. O

Singer/songwriter/ukulele player Molly Lewis is only 20 years old, but she has talent and maturity that defy her young age. And thanks to modern technology and the support of her fellow musicians, she’s making a name for herself very, very quickly. Born and raised in Orange County, Calif., a stone’s throw away from Disneyland, Lewis began playing music at a young age with the help and encouragement of her mother, also a musician. Her first musical heroes were progressive acoustic trio Nickel Creek, who inspired her to play guitar, the first in a long series of instruments. “I sort of went along this really bizarre daisy chain of instruments before I arrived at ukulele. First, I played guitar. And then, I thought [Nickel Creek’s] mandolin player, Chris Thile, was dreamy, so I picked up mandolin in emulation. And that didn’t work,” Lewis said in an interview.

“And then, for my middle-school graduation, I was really into Steve Martin at that point, so I asked for a banjo. And that also didn’t work.” A stint on accordion (inspired by They Might Be Giants and “Weird” Al Yankovic) followed, before Lewis settled on her primary instrument — the ukulele. It was on its tiny strings that she took her first, unknowing steps toward Internet fame. “I think it was my junior year of high school, I played my school talent show with my ukulele,” Lewis said. “The whole thing went over really, really great, because there’s no crowd you’ll ever play for that’s more forgiving than your own high school.” Friends who couldn’t be at the show asked her to bring her instrument to school, so she could show them her performance. She responded by posting a video of herself performing one of the songs — “Toxic” by Britney Spears — on YouTube. Before she knew what happened, a friend posted it to Digg.com and her cover went viral, racking up over 300,000 hits. n LEWIS CONTINUES ON 9


NO RACHEL RICHARDSON COLUMN THIS WEEK? DAMN ... TOLEDOFREEPRESS.COM / WEDNESDAY, OCT. 13, 2010 n 9 n LEWIS CONTINUED FROM 8 She had also posted a brief snippet of herself performing comic musician Jonathan Coulton’s song “Tom Cruise Crazy.” “That footage sneaked its way back to Jonathan,” Lewis said. “He said, ‘Oh yeah! She seems really talented, I wish I could hear the whole thing…’ And I’m like, ‘Aww!’ And I clamored, like, ‘Jonathan wants it, I will give Jonathan a whole version of his song, if he beckons for it!’” That video also became a hit, inspiring Lewis to post more songs, covering a wide range of artists — The Beatles, Patsy Cline, Radiohead, Lady Gaga. Then, she began posting her own songs: a hilarious tribute to MySpace’s increasing obscurity called “MyHope,” and “Road Trip,” inspired by the strange tale of love-struck astronaut Lisa Nowak, whose cross-country trip to confront her rival made headlines. “Before I even had an inkling that I would write songs one day, I heard that story and I was like, ‘Oh my God, this woman needs a song written about her. I don’t know who’s gonna do it, but it has to happen eventually. And I remember one day, I was unpacking my locker, and the words, ‘I don’t tell my parents/I don’t tell my friends/I just grab some rubber tubing/and I pull on my Depends/and then I drive’ just came into mind. And I was like, ‘All right!’” In 2009, she was invited to take part in an online competition called “Masters of Song-Fu,” hosted on asitecalledfred.com. The event gathered numerous Internet musicians in an Iron Chef-style songwriting battle. Lewis won the competition, writing four new songs in the process. “I feel like everybody sort of won that one.

The output of everybody else was just spectacular,” Lewis said. Now, Lewis finds herself in high demand. She regularly appears onstage with her hero Coulton, as well as comic songsters Paul and Storm, who invited her to take part in their recurring celebrations of geeks and music, w00tstock. A defining moment for Lewis came at the San Diego w00tstock in July. Before the show, it was announced that Lewis would not be allowed to enter the building — she was a minor, and the venue sold alcohol. She could come on for her set, escorted by security, and then would have to leave immediately. Lewis had to wait outside the stage door. She performed to a raucous response, including a quickly-learned cover of Save Ferris’s song “Under 21.” And then, at the behest of her fellow musicians, Lewis performed at intermission in the parking lot, with more than 200 audience members and all of her fellow performers watching. The performance became known as “Mollystock.” “That thing could have been really crappy. I mean, everyone was so nice about coming out and seeing me when they were not onstage. But then, the Mollystock thing, I feel like it just turned the crappiness of being left outside on its head, and just outweighed how poop it was that I had to sit out there.” As she gains experience, Lewis continues to mature as a performer — her shy, awkward nature being tempered by a growing confidence. “On my Wikipedia page, it actually says one of my distinctive stage qualities is that I forget my words a lot, and I forget important props,

which is not something I want to be known for,” she said, laughing. But Lewis never wants to outgrow the awe she feels at her success. “I don’t want to not be new to this. I never want to be in a position where I’m like, ‘Oh, yeah, I’m great, of course 200 people showed up for my acoustic thing on a loading dock,’” she said. “I never want it to get old. I never want it to be something that’s a chore.” Lewis also has to balance fame with her college career. She maintains a full workload of classes in addition to her continuing performances. “It’s been particularly challenging this year because last year, the w00tstocks and Jonathan would be in town, and it would kinda conveniently coincide with break. “The frequency has picked up a bit. So I actually had to send an e-mail to my professors saying, ‘Hey, I’m a D-list Internet celebrity, I’m gonna be gone for a little bit.’ I didn‘t actually say, ‘I‘m kind of a big deal,’ but I implied it,” Lewis joked. And though she’d love for her music to become her livelihood, Lewis keeps a level head about everything. “I would really like it to, but I don’t want to plan for it,” Lewis stated. “I didn’t plan to become viral on YouTube, I didn’t plan for Jonathan to reach out — very graciously, I might add — to share a stage with him, and share his fans. And it’s not something I can make any plans for. I can’t plan for it to fail, but I can’t plan for it to be a success, either. And so, I’m going to school so I can eat, in case the Internet drops out tomorrow.” The EP “I Made You a CD, But I Eated It” is available at mollylewis.bandcamp.com/. O

NWODC hosts partner dances; Adelante celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month The Northwest Ohio Dance Club (NWODC) will host partner pattern dance lessons Oct. 16. Belinda Cytlak will teach two partner pattern dances, one to cha-cha music and the other to East Coast swing music. “This type of a dance is normally done in a circle and the partners follow each other in the circle as they repeat the pattern,” said Janet Frederick, NWODC Promotions Chair. NWODC lessons require no partner. “It’s just great fun. It gives you an opportunity to meet people. Lots of times when you go to a dance lesson you’re just with one partner. We alternate partners constantly, so members get to dance with a lot of different people,” Frederick said. The lessons are from 7 to 8 p.m. with open dancing following from 8 p.m. to 11p.m. at the Toledo Yacht Club, 3900 N. Summit St. Lessons are free for members and $5 for guest members. Open dancing will also be free for members who fill out a five question survey and

$10 for nonmembers. It’s a really good time to join the club as membership has been prorated to $20 for the year, Frederick said. The membership runs until March 31. For information about NWODC, visit the website northwestohiodance club.shutterfly.com. O — Kristen Rapin

Love will come

Collingwood Arts Center hosts George Winston show.

By Kristen Rapin

Toledo Free Press Special Sections Editor krapin@toledofreepress.com

For more than two decades pianist George Winston has worked with food banks to host food drives at his concerts. “Hunger is a bottom line thing. When you’re down on your luck you could sleep in a car, but where are you going to get food legally? So I’ve decided to work in that area,” said Winston during a phone interview from the road. In Toledo, concert attendees are encouraged to bring canned goods to benefit the Toledo Seagate Food Bank. Winston will give 100 percent of his merchandise sales to the group, he said. Through the years Winston has also participated in other benefits. In 2006, he released “Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions — A Hurricane Relief Benefit,” a compilation of Gulf Coast composers to benefit Hurricane Katrina victims. Winston is working on follow-up “Gulf Coast Blues & Impressions” volumes, with one due out in 2011, he said. The volume will also go to benefit the Gulf region, where Winston has lived since 1964, he said. Winston is researching which charity to benefit with the next album, but hopes to help those affected by the oil spill, he said. “So much needs to be done in the world. You’ve got to make priorities and pick them. These disasters that hit America and the Gulf, everyone wants to do something. This is the best I can do,” he said. Inspired by The Doors, Winston began playing the organ in 1967. After listening to the music of Pat Waller, Winston switched to the piano, he said. Winston’s most recent release, “Love Will Come — The Music of Vince Guaraldi: Volume 2,” features works from the late jazz pianist, including songs from the “Peanuts” animated specials. “I just love his songs,” Winston said, “Seeing how these two volumes, how these songs fit together really well, I had to put it out.” Guaraldi is one of three composers whose catalogs Winston has tried to play every song of,

he said. Winston has also played all the works of The Doors and Professor Longhair. “I just love their songs. I love every song and I want to play it,” he said. Winston performs at the Collingwood Arts

Toledo Free Press Staff Writer news@toledofreepress.com

With 15 drivers on call, Be My Designated Driver (BeMyDD) opened its services in Toledo Sept. 27. The company is an alternative personal transportation service that boasts “We drive your car, so you don’t have to.” Founded by Miami University alum Arthur Simanovsky and Kent State University grad Alexa Milkovich, both class of 2009, BeMyDD started March 2010 for St. Patrick’s Day in Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati. In addition to opening its Toledo branch, BeMyDD is launching operations in Lexington, Lousiville, Ky., Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. “We’re going national by the end of 2011,” Simanovsky said. “This is something no one’s ever done before.” BeMyDD offers two services: Customers can pre-arrange a designated driver or call for a pickup. The main difference between BeMyDD and traditional taxi or limousine services is that the drivers use the client’s personal vehicle. According to BeMyDD’s website, a 4-hour trip would ring up a taxi fare of $86.50 and $200 for a chauffeured sedan. BeMyDD is able to offer the same service for $50. Designated drivers meet clients at their homes and drive them wherever they desire, charging a flat rate of $12.50 per hour. They must

be booked two hours in advance for a minimum of three hours. When clients call for a pickup service, a team of two drivers meet the client at their location to take them home. The rate is $25 for the pickup plus $2.95 per mile for the first 10 miles. After 10 miles, the rate is $1.50 per mile. “We’ve definitely seen the need for the service. Initially we thought it would be just for drinking and driving, but we’re opening business accounts now,” Simanovsky said. Simanovsky said BeMyDD subcontracts approximately 20 drivers per city and has an umbrella insurance policy to cover up to $1 million per incident. Drivers dress conservatively and are at least 25 years old with professional training. Drivers can also be arranged for airport transportation, events and weddings, assistance to the elderly and medical transportation. “Service is provided 24 hours a day and we take reservations until 11 p.m.,” Simanovsky said. All payment transactions are done by credit card at the end of the night, a feature Simanovsky implemented from his own personal experience after ending up with empty pockets after a night on the town. Milkovich said BeMyDD has contacted many Toledo bars and is currently talking to several establishments. According to its website, three local establishments are connected to BeMyDD. To arrange for a designated driver or pickup service, call 1-877-823-6933 or visit www. bemydd.com. O

Meanwhile, Boise State (5-0, 1-0 Western Athletic Conference) racked up 500 yards of total offense and jumped out to a 36-7 halftime lead while the Rockets (3-3, 2-0 MAC) struggled to get into any sort of rhythm. The lone bright spot for Toledo was sophomore wide receiver Eric Page, who hauled in 11 catches for 120 yards.

Lawrence Moore, in response to Oct. 10 update on “Iott participation in military re-enactments raising questions”: “We’ve been discussing this in class. One point was raised today, and I think it’s a good one. Exactly which war do you re-enact that involved the Nazi’s and the Allies? The Nazi’s didn’t fight in battles, they were mostly behind the scenes in places like the SS and the camps, etc. If the uniform he’s wearing is indeed a ‘Nazi’ uniform, and not a German enlisted man’s uniform, he’s got some serious explaining to do. His current story just doesn’t wash, historically speaking.”

Taken by surprise S

omething old and something new comes to the Hip-Hop world via 26-year-old Jameil Aossey, born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and raised in the Toledo area. At first glance, you would think he is an R&B singer with his suit and matching fedora, but his music proves that looks can be deceiving. He is a rapper whose style evokes a scat artist on a jazz intro or a smooth West Coast rapper, with obvious influences like Snoop Dogg and DJ Quick. Aossey’s album, “The Euphonious Suite,” is refreshingly filled with live instrumentation that carries the majority of his mainly self-produced album. Local R&B singer Charles Lane is featured on eight of the 12 tracks including the lead single “Melodies.” Lane’s style is a smooth melodic complement to Aossey’s and his own album is slated as the next release on Aossey’s label, Aossey Entertainment. Listeners will be impressed with the consistency of Aossey’s sound and the classic feel

Jameil Aossey offers refreshing music on ‘The Euphonious Suite.’

his music is bringing back to Hip-Hop. The accomplished pianist and drummer originally dreamed of being a radio DJ like his uncle Moe (104.7FM) and only started rapping to showcase his production. Aossey managed to build his brand and following by utilizing local talent, business sense and the Internet, creating a way for his music to reach the world and speak for itself. When I asked him about his digital strategy he replied, “We kind of had a buzz going and we leaked it online and these guys overseas picked it up (and) before I knew it, I’m getting play overseas before anybody over here had any idea what started this w h o l e thing.” Taken by surprise by his popularity after the leak of his single in August, Aossey remains humbled and focused. He credits his family and a close circle of forwardthinking artists, along with mentor and fellow musician Rob Lee of New Realm Recordings for

helping him when he started his musical journey 10 years ago. The art of heavily incorporating Jazz and Soul in Hip-Hop had been popular in the ’90s with artists like Gang Starr, Soul II Soul, Loose Ends, and mainstays like The Roots. Music has moved toward a commercial pop genre and has become more about what goes hard in the club than easy listening in your car or home. Artists have to realize the importance of the business because it determines the fate of a great album. Aossey sat on his project from April to August to make sure he had all his business in order prior to releasing it. A well-thought-out and calculated project from start to finish, “Euphonious Suite” is headed in the right direction. When asked about his attention to detail he stated, “People don’t care to study the business they don’t think it’s important. They think it can just happen, that ‘oh, I can get signed tomorrow’.” Aossey has recorded many songs with his friends, but only wanted to put out the best. Although he has been focused on producing the highest quality of music he could possibly make, he assured me they had plenty of fun during the process. “We had so much fun doing it we even left some of the laughter in! Let the industry (be) critics. You just make it how it needs to be made and if people like it, they do, and if they don’t,

Aossey then they don’t, it’s just the way it is.” Euphonious Suite is music for all ages and is available for purchase on Amazon.com and Cdbaby.com. For more info on this artist, visit www. jameilaossey.com. As we continue on ... O

‘Wii Party’ offers more than 80 games By Michael Siebenaler Toledo Free Press Star Staff Writer star@toledofreepress.com

Be sure to have enough Nintendo Wii controllers so four players can enjoy more than 80 minigames, quizzes and other fun group activities in “Wii Party.” Board games, challenging puzzles and coordinated movements all mix into this collection, giving players choice and variety in an organized blend without overwhelming them. This Wii exclusive game utilizes the Mii characters well in a fun collection has something for everyone in all ages, skill levels and player combinations. Four players can split into three-versus-one play or pair up for games like “Fishin’ Buddies,” “Bobsled Highway” and “Teamwork Temple.” Matching games like “Swap Meet” place the Miis on parade for players to grab and arrange by color and other criteria. Other activities like cutting food, boat bal-

ancing, and horse derby racing, demonstrate more creative activities that players can enjoy and perform safely on the Wii. The unique Wii remote also becomes a tangible, interactive game element as players hide the remote so other players can hunt for it using audio prompts. Players can also pick the correct sounding remote or play hot potato with the remote acting as a sensitive bomb. Try out each game individually and set the CPU to a specific skill level. Time-mindful players can even choose games by a long or short length. High scores measure performance, but the fun level becomes the main focus here as the entertaining Mii character reactions, playful music and appealing visuals all combine into a great group game which adds constant gameplay variety.

ne of the great guilty pleasures of Twitter is following celebrities’ accounts. Many of them, of course, are little more than publicity tools, written by assistants and image doctors. But then there are the celebs who actually seem to put effort into their tweets, and turn out a product as entertaining as anything they do in “real JEFF life.” Here are 10 great ones: O Adrianne Curry (@AdrianneCurry): The first winner of “America’s Next Top Model” and star of “My Fair Brady” is one of the funniest and most frank posters on Twitter. You have to love anyone who swears like a sailor, parties like a supermodel and is as passionate about geeky issues as the self-described “angst-ridden, videogame-loving child of the ’90s” is. Sample Tweet: “wow ... the fact that im only a little tired with no hangover is awesome!” O Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano): The former “Charmed” star states in her bio, “This is my official page. I tweet a lot. Consider yourself forewarned.” And so she does. But it is almost always interesting and usually is filled with loads of links to fascinating articles. Sample Tweet: “Just got back from the ‘Young Hollywood Party’. Young Hollywood’s auto-tune music made me miss Oingo Boingo.” O Chris Jericho (@IAmJericho): I follow a lot of wrestlers, but Jericho would be the one I’d most recommend to non-wrestling fans. Continuously entertaining, the wrestler/rock star/ author/game show host/parent keeps fans up on his latest escapades, especially now that he’s on hiatus from WWE. Sample Tweet: “Due to all of this spare time I have now, I’ve taken up knitting. Just finished up a lovely powder blue petticoat. Any takers?” O Conan O’Brien (@ConanOBrien): Fans going through Conan withdrawal while waiting for his show on TBS to start need not fret. O’Brien has been busy posting some of the most hilarious jokes on the Web via his Twitter feed, which reads like a very long version of his opening monologue. Sample Tweet: “Rahm Emanuel has left the White House to run for Mayor of Chicago. Wow, and I thought I was the only one moving to a lower-paying job.” O Diablo Cody (@diablocody): The Oscarwinning screenwriter of “Juno” offers a continuous string of engaging information on her upcoming projects, the realities of Hollywood and her life. Sample Tweet: “My mom just cut up a Chipotle burrito and put a tiny slice on a plate for me. I’m shocked she didn’t chew it first.”

Ten of the best celebrity tweeters.

O Felicia Day (@feliciaday): You may not know the talented Ms. Day just yet, but you will soon enough. Appearing on shows like “House” and “Eureka” have surely raised her profile, as has her own creation, the wildly popular online geek sitcom “The Guild.” Sample Tweet: “Question: I’ve carried a turkey sandwich around all day in my purse. How many hours before I will get food poisoning by eating it?” O Roger Ebert (@ebertchicago): The world’s most famous film critic, Ebert discovered Twitter last year and has taken to the service like a duck to water, using it to spotlight links, articles, reviews and his own passionate opinions on the movies, politics and more. Sample Tweet: “After vetting 76,248 comments on my blog, I conclude that right-wingers, in general, cannot spell.” O Seth MacFarlane (@SethMacFarlane): The “Family Guy” creator started his official ac-

mCGINNIS

POP GOES THE

CULTURE

count a while ago, but only recently started updating it in earnest. And who could have guessed, it is largely comprised of a wildly eclectic — and wildly funny — series of random thoughts and one-liners. Tremendous stuff. Sample Tweet: “I support the right of the Jedi to build a temple, but does it have to be two blocks from the ruins of the Death Star?” O Steve Martin (@SteveMartinToGo): Another recent arrival on the Twitter scene, the comedy legend has quickly adapted to Twitter with a wonderfully witty and charmingly odd feed. As with every other media he’s tackled before, Martin is testing the barriers of what you can do with Twitter — with awesome results. Sample Tweet: “Played San Luis Obispo last night. Santa Barbara tomorrow, San Diego Saturday. Then Scottsdale. Fired agent. I SAID ONLY SAINT THEMED TOWNS.” O Wil Wheaton (@wilw): One of the first to jump on the Twitter bandwagon, the former-childstar-turned-Internet-icon has one of the best accounts on the service. If you’re a geek and you don’t follow Wil Wheaton, you’re not really a geek. Sample Tweet: “It fills me with joy to watch my first game of the 10-’11 NHL season on CBC, in the original, untranslated Canadian.” O E-mail Jeff at PopGoesJeff@gmail.com.
