But the ones who take up lasting residence in our nightmares are the ones who veer from memorable extremes of evil to charm that wins the unsuspecting victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust, or whose behavior is at least unpredictable enough to keep the viewer perpetually off-balance. Robert Mitchumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reverend Harry Powell in The Night of the Hunter knows how to act righteous and woo a woman. Javier Bardemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anton Chigurh in No Country for Old Men kills most people he encounters, but will spare others based on a coin toss. Anthony Hopkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs will most likely eat your face if he gets a chance, but might help you out if you earn his respect. But it was Peter Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Tooleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eli Cross â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the cold-blooded movie director who will do anything to his actors, however dangerous and reprehensible, to capture a realistic-looking scene on camera in The Stunt Man â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who came to mind for this reviewer while watching Whiplash, Damien Chazelleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mesmerizing tale of a bullying music teacher and his star student. Both characters hold up

making great art as their rationale for their acts of calculated cruelty, and both have their moments of charm and simulated simpatico. Terrence Fletcher, the terrifyingly overbearing, verbally and physically abusive professor of jazz at the fictional Shaffer Conservatory portrayed by J. K. Simmons in Whiplash, plays Bad Cop about 90 percent of the time and Good Cop about ten percent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but only to worm out clues about his pupilsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fears,

ALMANAC WEEKLY

February 5, 2015 of the blood spilled in this story comes from young protagonist Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) practicing his drumming for far too many hours on end. Nonetheless, I found myself developing a stiff neck before the movie was half-over, just from the tension of watching Fletcher’s highly charged interactions with Neyman and the rest of his battered brood of jazz stars of the future. Whoever thought that a music teacher could be as much of a martinet as the harshest boot camp drillmaster? The things that Fletcher says and does to his students, the sadistic ways in which he manipulates them psychologically to weed the weak and the mediocre out of his core band, at times surpass the point of plausibility. It’s hard not to notice that none of his top students is female, which may be less a matter of sexist casting than that having a male teacher treat young women this brutally would add a whole different social dynamic to the story, and maybe the screenwriter/director simply didn’t want to go there. But Simmons is so damn convincing as this horrible perfectionist that we’re willing to submit ourselves to young Andrew’s ordeal, all in the name of art. It’s a singularly painful sort of moviegoing pleasure. However good Simmons is in this incredibly demanding role, Whiplash wouldn’t work if he weren’t matched stroke for stroke by Teller, for whom this is likely to be a breakthrough movie surpassing his much-lauded performance in 2013’s The Spectacular Now. Aside from the technical challenge of learning to play drums well enough to convince us that he’s the 19-year-old next Buddy Rich, Teller crafts a character who is far more than just another talented kid with stars in his eyes à la Flashdance. Bouncing back time after time from having his ego pounded, he begins to absorb and embody the master’s lessons on levels other than the musical. Neyman undergoes a chilling transformation from determined acolyte

to reciprocal abuser, dumping his nice girlfriend (Melissa Benoist) when he begins to see her as a potential distraction from his singleminded drum practice and then turning the tables on his tormentor using some of Fletcher’s own tricks. Whether that message of the bullied morphing into the bully was the filmmaker’s intent is not entirely clear; Whiplash might also be interpreted, disturbingly, as an endorsement of a macho dog-eat-dog worldview, or the Tiger Mom philosophy of parenting in which offering your child any encouragement for lessthan-perfect performance is seen as lethal to future success. Those who will draw that lesson from it probably already look down on anybody who will offer a kid an A for effort, so never mind them. See this movie anyway and don’t bother trying to make a life lesson out of it. Whiplash is brutal, but it will stick with you a long time. – Frances Marion Platt

good after only about 12 years of writing film scores. Korngold died in 1957, and for a long while his lush Romantic style of composition became unfashionable; but in recent decades his reputation has grown again. Resuscitating the oeuvres of neglected composers being a specialty of the American Symphony Orchestra (ASO), it seems fitting that the same Violin Concerto that was so savaged in 1947 will be on the program this weekend as the ASO continues its winter concert series at the Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts on the Bard College campus. That piece will feature a latter-day musical wunderkind, Bard Conservatory sophomore Gabriel Baeza, on violin. Puerto Rican-born Baeza was a winner of the Conservatoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2014 Concerto Competition, as was a 2014 graduate, flautist Adrienn KĂĄntor.

A special sonic place

Breakfast in Fur celebrate Flyway Garden release on Friday at Snug Harbor in New Paltz

B

reakfast in Fur’s principal songwriter and producer, Dan Wolfe, is a heavy cat. Soft-spoken, slight of build, basketball-tall but not so inclined, his eyes seem to widen behind his spectacles (honest, they do) when you ask him a question, and his answers always betray that he was really thinking about it, really processing and not just reacting. There’s a sense of cool about him – not hipster cool, but the neurological cool of someone focused and reserved; it’s expressed in his low-key persona and in his (locally legendary) resolve to make music his own way and in his own sweet time. There are a lot of heavy cats on the local music scene these days. They ring the rafters with the expressive power and soul of their singing. They possess a musicality so organic, so kinesthetic that they can hardly bump into a piece of wood without coaxing a beautiful KAITLIN VAN PELT sound out of it. Dan Wolfe is…not one of those guys, and he cuts an unlikely figure among them. His singing voice…well, it consigns him to the indie world, where shaky vulnerability is a plus; but he makes it work with style and without apology. His guitar-playing… well, after years of performing in foxhole conditions, it has actually gotten quite good – Super Effective, to borrow a term from Pokémon – but his nomination for the Central New York and Southern Tier Blues Preservation League Hall of Fame will be long in the coming, if you dig. Wolfe’s (very real, very advanced) musical gifts are conceptual in nature. He is sonically savvy and hip to currents in 20th-century art and cinema, and it shows in his remarkable ear for textural layering and collage. While he is also a fine traditional songwriter, it is clear that he regards sound as a “thing,” a recording as a “special place that you go.” His talent belongs not to the domain of musical kinesthetics but to that of vision and aesthetic intent, which is not the same thing as taste. All the certified grads of every Jazz Studies program have learned taste (otherwise they wouldn’t get work), but very few will ever or could ever invent their own deeply coherent and enchanted musical world in the way that Dan Wolfe has with his band, Breakfast in Fur.

And those gifted players, those certified cats, they line up and take a number to play with guys like Dan Wolfe. Figure that one out for yourself. About five or six years ago, Wolfe locked himself in a bedroom and recorded a pretty amazing six-song EP. Whether this bedroom was in Ithaca or in New Paltz is a subject of some confusion; but I am a New Paltz homer, so I am claiming it for us, like Oyster Bay’s much-disputed claim to the provenance of Billy Joel. Wolfe made the eponymous Breakfast in Fur debut mostly by himself, and mostly with junk: Casio-grade mini-keyboards, plastic castanets, cheap laminate guitars and other rattling string instruments, Toys ’R Us discards, clacking things that he hit with other clacking things and lots of digital reverb and inside-the-box audio manipulation. And it was wonderful: a world apart. It featured a set of sturdy, sincere and unpretentious songs with strong earworm properties, but most of all it was a complete aesthetic vision; Breakfast in Fur was a “place” that you could only ever visit by listening to that record. The EP made waves here and elsewhere and spawned a busy, touring live band that has gone through innumerable personnel changes over the years, but has always featured the core of Wolfe, keyboardist/vocalist Kaitlin Van Pelt and guitarist Mike Hollis. With ace drummer Chris Walker rounding out the stable current lineup, they have become a reliable, rocking live act fit for the clubs and do-it-yourself venues of urban hipster America. And while they have never really tried to recreate the insular acoustic quality of that debut EP live, everything that they have done has been “in

the spirit” of it: intentionally naïve, ecstatic, enamored with soundmaking, oblivious to technique per se and wanting nothing but a little alien magic and catharsis for themselves and for their audience. And they’ve been making another record, for a long time now, in various studios and at home – a composite of a record that involves contributions from all the layered strata of BiF alumni. There has been some production and engineering involvement from our heaviest studio heavies like Dean Jones, Kevin McMahon and Jamal Ruhe, but, Wolfe being Wolfe, this one is pretty much all his production handiwork as well. And in the years of its making, in the years of our waiting, they’ve gotten signed, too: to the prestigious indie label Bar/None Records, the original Hoboken label of 10,000 Maniacs and They Might Be Giants, among many others. Flyaway Garden arrives on Bar/None Records this week. Worth the wait? Why, yes: The album is great, and the wait wasn’t so bad after all. What’s remarkable is that it feels so much like one uncompromised story and not a scattershot document of a protracted, disrupted, delayed and multi-location recording process. It is frontloaded with its most striking songs, ’cause that’s how you do it: the thudding rocker “Shape” with its impossibly catchy single melody, the velvety pop “Portrait,” the whispery mood piece “Whisper,” the stark and dark low-point anthem “Setting Stone.” As Flyaway Garden progresses, it melts more and more into lovely sound-forsound’s-sake experiments, electropsychedelia and dwelling sonics. The pivotal point in the record, from song toward pure sound, is a long and truly bizarre cover of “Cripple Creek Ferry”: Neil Young by way of early Animal Collective. Following that is the Van Pelt-composed title track, an inwardgazing, wordless vocal meditation that, oddly, reminds me of the New Age jazz flautist Paul Horn’s Inside the Taj Mahal. This band has always had a bit of magic about it, an identity and a likability that somehow manage to precede the music and enhance it. Their sound is inextricable from their mysteriously compelling branding and graphic design (mostly by the professional painter/designer Van Pelt, though Wolfe’s background is in art studies as well). The EP cover depicted a child (lost? abandoned?) in an animal costume, connecting image effortlessly with the music’s Lord of the Flies sense of decivilized and reinvented worlds. On Flyaway Garden’s cover is Van Pelt’s inexplicably moving portrait of the young Dan Wolfe. And the music is very much what I would call visual-arts rock. It would be visualarts rock even if it arrived in a plain white sleeve with the bare-bones data printed in Times New Roman. The featured sounds are palpable, relished and foregrounded as if they were objects in space. The counterpoint comes in musically decoupled layers of color, flowing in parallel rivers but disengaged from the interlocking jigsaws of standard rock arrangement (think of the Brian Eno aesthetic, or even our resident space-rock legends Mercury Rev). And it is this combination of crafty sonic artiness and an abiding, childlike love of simple song that really makes this stuff work. The solid, memorable songs peep through the smear, the tumult and the haze of the sound art in the most delightful way. Breakfast in Fur celebrates the release of Flyway Garden locally at Snug Harbor in New Paltz on Friday, February 6 at 10:30 p.m. They will be joined by their old friends Shana Falana and Los Doggies. Snug Harbor is located at 38 Main Street in New Paltz. For more, visit http://breakfastinfur.com. – John Burdick

Direct from South Africa Grammy-winning cultural emissaries Ladysmith Black Mambazo to perform at Bardavon on Sunday afternoon

T

he Legendary South African a capella group Ladysmith Black Mambazo kicked off its US tour last week, and it will come to the Bardavon Opera House in Poughkeepsie on Sunday, February 8, for a 3 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock show. The group, which has been performing for more than 50 years, feels that its call for harmony is more important than it has ever been. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People in the world are doing such bad things to other people,â&#x20AC;? said Albert Mazibuko, a soft-spoken tenor who joined Ladysmith Black Mambazo in 1969. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think people need to hear more the message of peace.â&#x20AC;? Ladysmith Black Mambazo received

its fourth Grammy Award in 2014 for the album For Peace around the World. The members take very seriously their designation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;South Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cultural Ambassadors to the World,â&#x20AC;? bestowed upon them by the late Nelson Mandela. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we are in a time of celebrating,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are celebrating what we have achieved in our music. Our spirit is always rejoicing.â&#x20AC;? Mazibuko relishes the thought of sharing the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message with fans new and old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a blessing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have been joined by our sons now, our grandsons, in the group. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing. This is not us, what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing... itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that we have to share with the world. The peace that the music brings to us, other people need to hear that peace, and then they need to hear that

encouragement.â&#x20AC;? Ladysmith Black Mambazoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s South African harmonies were key to the success of Paul Simonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genre-defying 1986 album Graceland, and the group has won four Grammy Awards. Ladysmith Black Mambazo has performed with countless musicians, including Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, Sarah McLachlan and Josh Groban. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That makes me very happy, that other musicians appreciate our music,â&#x20AC;? Mazibuko said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we collaborate with other people and sing with them, it seems that we are shaking hands. We are brothers and sisters. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carry on and promote peace around the world.â&#x20AC;? Ladysmith Black Mambazoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new recording, Songs of Peace & Love for Kids & Parents around the World, puts families at its center.

Whatever happened to Rodgers and Hammerstein? Young theater fans these days may know all the songs from Les Mis and Rent and Avenue Q, but will likely draw a complete blank if you ask them to hum a few bars of Getting to Know You or Oh, What a Beautiful Morning: songs that once were universally known standards. Readers over a certain age will recall a time when the names Rodgers and Hammerstein were practically synonymous with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broadway musical.â&#x20AC;? But then darker, trendier or more provocative works like Hair, Cabaret and A Chorus

Bob Marley 70th birthday bash in Woodstock

R

eggae music has always played well in this town, and Woodstock recognizes the 70th birthday of Bob Marley with a star-studded lineup on Saturday, February 7 at 8 p.m. The show features Ansel Meditations – who provided harmony for Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Gregory Isaacs – along with Liviti and deejay Sarah Queen Tubby. Proceeds will be donated to the Bob Marley School in St. Ann, Jamaica. Tickets cost $40, $35 and $25 and are available at www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock.

Line came along, and R&H’s works of the ’40s and ’50s suddenly began to seem… well, kind of whitebread and corny by comparison. That harsh reassessment wasn’t entirely fair; there was social commentary deftly hidden amidst the wholesome sweetness of R&H’s lush productions. How quickly audiences forgot, for example, that South Pacific contains a song that skewers racism in the lullaby “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught.” These shows are chockfull of really well-written songs that deserve to be rediscovered. So maybe you ought to bring along your favorite teenager who has been bitten by the acting bug to hear the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra (NDSO) on Saturday evening, February 7 at 8 p.m., when the nine-year-old classical ensemble will perform An Evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein Classics. While NDSO has in the past played mostly in high schools, this time it’ll be appearing in a much fancier venue: the Culinary Institute of America’s new 800-seat Marriott Pavilion auditorium, which recently also became the new home of Poughkeepsie’s Half Moon Theatre. The concert, conducted by Kathleen Beckmann (pictured above in this photo by Guy Peifer) and timed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the organization now known as Arts Mid-Hudson, will include selections from South Pacific, Carousel, The King and I, Oklahoma! and The Sound of Music. Guest vocalists Jeremy

Moore, Marie Masters, Anthony Webb and Emily Geller will join the orchestra. Of course, going to see a show at the CIA brings with it a perq: the opportunity to pair a fabulous meal prepared by the top chefs of tomorrow with your evening’s musical entertainment. The CIA will open its Caterina de’ Medici restaurant for a special $39 pre-performance dining experience from 5 to 6:15 p.m.,

n his new band the Chris Robinson Brotherhood (now on its third release, Phosphorescent Harvest), the former Black Crowes frontman found his grounding after his main band had maybe lost the plot a little in the rock-star world. The Brotherhood made a point of traveling old-school and living like a genuine band of brothers, avoiding the Lear jets whenever possible and playing an impassioned, gospelized brand of classic rock that comes as natural to Robinson as breathing. It has never paid to take Chris Robinson lightly. People who care about such things have always regarded him as one of the worthiest organic heirs of the classic rock cocktail of blues, boogie, jam and psychedelia. Phil Lesh and Little Feat have rushed in to borrow him for his charismatic performance abilities, and his effortless songwriting usually turns out to be surprisingly substantial, when you let it work its charms on you. Phosphorescent Harvest is a delightful and wacky psychedelic boogie record filled with cheese organs, electronic zaps, tile-reverb guitars and Robinson’s unshakable swagger and heart at the center of it, running a range of references from Gram Parsons to Donovan. A favorite around these parts, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood brings the roving show to the Bearsville Theater on Tuesday, February 10 at 8 p.m. Ticket prices range from $59 to $30. The Bearsville Theater is located at 291 Tinker Street in Woodstock. For more information, visit www. bearsvilletheater.com. – John Burdick

Dorsky Museum at SUNY-New Paltz opens four spring exhibitions

O

n Saturday, February 7 from 5 to 7 p.m., the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art on the SUNY-New Paltz campus will officially kick off its 2015 spring season with an opening reception for not one but four exhibitions that will run simultaneously. One, titled “Geometries of Difference: New Approaches to Ornament and Abstraction,” will run through April 12. The other three will be up until July: “Grace Hartigan: Myths and Malls,” “The Maverick Festival at 100” and “Videofreex: The Art of Guerrilla Television.” Excitement is running especially high for the opening of the Videofreex show, where many grizzled veterans of the heady, low-tech Portapak days of the 1970s are expected to converge. Millennials and Gen-Xers who grew up on the wonders of digital technology may have difficulty imagining a time when a “portable” videotape recorder weighed 20 or 30 pounds and a camera another five or ten. But when SONY released its black-and-white half-inch reel-to-reel Portapak in 1967, it was the beginning of a communications revolution that hasn’t stopped yet. For the first time, ordinary consumers could make their own television, just as cable companies were beginning to expand their coaxial tentacles into America’s households. Filmmakers, still photographers, visual artists and curious people in general began to tinker with the new gadgetry and screen their videotaped results on the public access TV stations that had begun to spring up in cabled communities. The Videofreex were a group of

Photographer unknown (all photographs courtesy of Videofreex) longhaired communards who ran “America’s smallest TV station” in the tiny town of Lanesville, just north of the Ulster/Greene County line in the Catskills. Students in early video classes at SUNYNew Paltz and other innovative campuses learned the ropes using the Videofreex’ Spaghetti City Video Manual as their technical textbook (the “spaghetti” refers to the jumbles of electrical cords and cable accompanying any cobbled-together bank of video equipment back in the day). The group, who first convened in SoHo circa 1969, relocated their operation to Maple Tree Farm in Lanesville in 1971 in search of cheaper rents after an attempt by CBS-TV to hire some hippie documentarians to produce a magazine-format show about the youth counterculture to fill in the former Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour timeslot failed spectacularly. The Videofreex made a pilot, all right, titled Subject to Change; but stuffed-shirt CBS executives had no idea how to market it, and fired the producer who had dreamed up the project. The show at the Dorsky will include an hommage to the legendary “Night Raid on Black Rock,” when Videofreex member Skip Blumberg smuggled several of the collective’s more historically significant tapes – including footage of Black Panthers activist Fred Hampton, shot just weeks before he was killed by Chicago police – out of CBS headquarters in a guitar case. With some grant funding from the New York State Council on the Arts’ fledgling

Media Program and a modulator bartered to them by Abbie Hoffman in exchange for Parry Teasdale’s ghostwriting the do-it-yourself-video chapter in Steal This Book, the Videofreex quickly made their Lanesville headquarters a Mecca for established avant-garde artists and wannabe alternative media producers alike. Longtime Woodstocker DeeDee Halleck, founder of Paper Tiger TV and the Deep Dish Satellite Network, was among many non-members of the collective who went on to illustrious careers in alternative media after cutting

their teeth in the cutting room at Maple Tree Farm. “The Freex were an enormous influence on me,” writes Halleck. “Their playful approach to technology was the genesis of Paper Tiger TV: a collective production idea that persists to this day… everyone playing interchangeable roles and everyone having input into the mix. That was a whole new way of doing TV, and the Videofreex were the first.” Though they were surveilled by the FBI as possible subversives, the Videofreex gradually endeared themselves to their puzzled Lanesville neighbors, making

for the masses, rather than something that people needed to be passively spoon-fed by corporate giants, the Videofreex were pioneers blazing a path that led to the participatory media like YouTube that we take for granted today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew this exhibit could not just be a historical presentation; we had to show how the activities of the Videofreex in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s still are with us,â&#x20AC;? says Dorsky Museum curator Daniel Belasco. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social media were predicted by what the Videofreex were up to 45 years ago. Even then, they envisioned regular people sharing information through networks.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father was always an early adopter of technology,â&#x20AC;? says second-generation

news stories about local non-events by toting video equipment around in a converted baby carriage dubbed the Newsbuggy and casting local kids in programs like The Buckaroo Bart Show. Each Saturday night they broadcast the shows to the inhabitants of their little cleft in the Catskills. But by 1978 the group was breaking up: Parry Teasdale and Carol Vontobel had started a family and left the commune. They eventually ended up in Columbia County, with Teasdale pursuing a career editing newspapers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including, for several years, our Woodstock Times. Other Videofreex drifted off into individual art projects, and Bart Friedman and Nancy Cain reestablished Media Bus, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobile not-for-profit educational entity, as a production facility in Woodstock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still involved with community video in Saugerties,â&#x20AC;? says Friedman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on the board of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cable access channel.â&#x20AC;?

The New Paltz native says that she incorporates video production into the courses that she teaches at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Though the students are using iPhones about 1/100th the weight and size of a Portapak, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that same spirit of democratized video.â&#x20AC;? Today Rhea maintains the Videofreex website, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honor to work with them to preserve the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pioneering, creative and mischievous legacy.â&#x20AC;? On view through July 12, the exhibition surveys the history and mythology of the Videofreex with 22 newly restored videotapes, more than 90 photographs and slides and nearly 80 other objects including drawings, prints, ephemera (including letters signed by Eldridge Cleaver and Charlotte Moorman), publications and historic audiovisual equipment. Related events will include a screening of videos featured in the exhibition and excerpts from the new documentary Here Come the Videofreex at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 12 at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, followed by a discussion with filmmaker Jon Nealon, curator Andrew Ingall and Videofreex Cain and Blumberg. And at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 8, a panel discussion including Blumberg and Teasdale titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Videofreex:

The exhibitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening party on February 7 will also officially inaugurate â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geometries of Difference,â&#x20AC;? guest-curated by Murtaza Vali, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grace Hartigan: Myths and Mallsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Maverick Festival at 100,â&#x20AC;? both curated by Belasco. Woodstockers should especially enjoy the Maverick materials, which include plenty of photographs less familiar than the usual shots of arts celebrities, like Isamu Noguchi posing with Grace Greenwood. Highlights include a circa-1920 panoramic shot of festivalgoers in full regalia, a 1931 oil painting by Eugene Ludins of the kitchen at the Maverick and a papier-mâchĂŠ sculpture by Russell Wright made as a prop for the Maverick Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1923 Cubist Circus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grace Hartigan: Myths and Mallsâ&#x20AC;? is the first museum show since 2001 of paintings by one of the last Abstract Impressionists, collected by the late sculptor and art dealer, Beatrice Perry of Germantown. Characterized by large scale and vivid color combinations, Hartiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little-seen works include a series of tributes to Marilyn Monroe following her death, images evoking suburban shopping malls of the 1960s and three terrific paintings inspired by poems by Barbara Guest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Geometries of Differenceâ&#x20AC;? examines the work of seven artists, four of them from southern Asia and the Middle East, who take the next step beyond abstraction by juxtaposing non-representational geometry and fractal patterns with ethnic ornamental motifs from a variety of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultures. Especially striking in this show is Kanisha Rajaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1+1 (Fuck Yeah), an assemblage of nine panels with linear patterns rendered in paint, embroidery, hand-woven cotton and digital printing, which together suggest something like a batik bedspread. Seher Shah makes collages from photos of façades in the Brutalist style of architecture, vertiginously tilting the images until they suggest an Escher print of improbable staircases. Another collage artist, Kamrooz Aram, meshes images of sublime 7,000-year-old Persian art treasures with blunt Modernist geometric forms in stark black-and-white. All four of these exhibitions can be perused in an afternoon in the Dorskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economical space layout. Regular museum hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. The Dorsky Museum is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, holidays and during college intersessions. Admission is free.

Nearly four years after the disaster, the renovated and expanded library building recently reopened to the public. At the front of the building is the Anglers Parlor, housing the Jerry Bartlett Angling Collection. After the fire, book donations quickly replaced many of the fishing books that were destroyed, and new rods are available for checkout during fishing season.

THOUGH NOW 84 YEARS OF AGE, PAUL TAYLOR’S still very much an active choreographer, and the film Paul Taylor: Creative Domain examines the development of his 133rd work

Sparks of creation Rosendale Theatre’s Dance Film Sundays series screens Paul Taylor: Creative Domain

On the second Sunday afternoon of every month, the Rosendale Theatre features a movie about dance: an artform that lends itself splendidly well to capture onscreen. This weekend, it will screen a documentary about one of the last surviving giants of modern dance’s “second generation”: the brilliant and extraordinarily prolific Paul Taylor. Though now 84 years of age, he’s still very much an active choreographer, and the film Paul Taylor: Creative Domain examines the development of his 133rd work, Three Dubious Memories, right from the first moments of its creation. Audiences get to witness the process by which Taylor works with two longtime (and equally legendary) collaborators, costume/set designer Santo Loquasto and lighting designer Jennifer Tipton, along with Peter Elyakim Taussig, who composed the music used in the new piece. “For the uninitiated, the interplay of labor and inspiration may come as a surprise,” wrote Deborah Jowitt, doyenne of dance critics. “A dance gets hammered out, made to fit and polished to beauty like a shoe made by a master cobbler.” Emmy Award-winner Kate Geis directed and produced Paul Taylor: Creative Domain, and Tom Hurwitz did the cinematography. The screening begins at 3 p.m. on Sunday, February 8. Tickets cost $10 for general admission, $9 for Rosendale Theatre Collective members and $6 for children age 12 and under.

Youth on the move Twelve companies perform at DanceFest! this weekend at SUNY-New Paltz

H

ard to believe that “DanceFest!” the annual midwinter presentation of works in various dance genres by students from a dozen Hudson Valley dance schools, organized by the Vanaver Caravan, has been around for 23 years now. A lot of those young students from the extravaganza’s early years will be enrolling their own kids in dance academies soon enough! Back again at SUNY-New Paltz’s McKenna Theatre this weekend, DanceFest! 2015 will feature a hello, a goodbye and not one but two shows. Susan Slotnick’s Figures in Flight Dance Company – the youth troupe, not one of her various ensembles of prison inmates or ex-cons – will be having its last go-round at this year’s event, performing Welcome to the World. Stepping in for the first time will be the Dutchess School of Performing Arts, presenting an original Jerome Robbins-flavored ballet set to Vivaldi and a multi-genre piece titled Flights of Fancy. The host company will present dancers from the Vanaver CaravanKids Project and Youth Company performing clogging, Kurdish/Turkish line dancing and May Peace Prevail on Earth, an upbeat contemporary dance using sign language. Currently a principal dancer for the New Jersey Ballet, Albert Davydov will perform along with his student dancers from the American Youth Ballet in Paquita. The Saugerties Ballet Center will perform Midnight Sun, a new ballet set to Norwegian folk music. Rhinebeck Ballet Theatre dancers will present Caterpillar, a piece inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Also on the program will be pieces performed by students (and some faculty members) from the Ballet Arts Studio, the Barefoot Dance Center, the D’amby Project, Gina Marie’z, the New Paltz School of Ballet, the New York Academy of Ballet and the Rhinebeck Dance Centre. You have two chances to catch DanceFest! 2015: at 7 p.m. this Saturday, February 7 and a 2 p.m. matinée this Sunday, February 8. Proceeds will benefit the Vanaver Caravan’s arts education programs in Ulster County and the surrounding areas. Tickets can be bought in advance through the individual dance schools or at the door prior to each performance, and cost $18 for general admission, $12 for seniors and children age 12 and under.

French film festival at Vassar Hollywood may still dominate, and Bollywood may actually be the biggest of the world’s film industries, but the French still hold sway as the heart and soul of le cinéma, from the Lumieres, George Méliès and Max Linder’s early experiments through Cahiers du Cinéma, the Cinémathèque, the Nouvelle Vague and over a century of challenging and beautiful works. For the coming weeks, Vassar College is demonstrating all this with a new – and free – Tournées French Film Festival, supported in part by the FACE (French American Cultural Exchange) Foundation of the Cultural Services of

the French Embassy of New York. The theme? “Love in the 21st Century.” Some of what to expect? How about the recent Amour (February 13) and Blue Is the Warmest Color (February 20), along with the quirky and unforgettable Leos Carax’s Mauvais Sang (February 21), Maïwenn’s Polisse (February 6), Valérie Donzelli’s Declaration of War (February 7) and Asghar Farhadi’s The Past (February 27). Each screening, some digital and others in 35mm, will be introduced by a Vassar professor and responded to by another academic. All films will be presented in the Rosenwald Theater in the Vogelstein Center for Drama and Film, on the handsome Vassar campus in Poughkeepsie. Screenings begin at 6:30 p.m.

GARDENERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NOTEBOOK

The dirt on climate change Compost is key to sequestering carbon in the soil

W

e â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that is, almost all of humanity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get all our sustenance from the thin skin that covers our planet, the soil. In appreciation of this, the United Nations has declared 2015 â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Year of Soil.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soil is more important than oil,â&#x20AC;? stated Wes Jackson, founder of the Land Institute (www. landinstitute.org), in his keynote at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent NOFA-NY (Northeast Organic Farming Association, www.nofany.org) conference. Like oil, soil is a nonrenewable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or only slowly renewable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; resource. Centuries go by before rainfall, freezing, thawing, microbes and plants eat away at rocks to make new soil; on average, it takes a thousand years for the creation of a mere half-inch of new soil. The problem is that, as with oil, we humans are using up soil faster than new soil is being created â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ten to 40 times faster! Also as with oil, that soil, as it is used, releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Tillage exposes carbon stored in the ground to air, â&#x20AC;&#x153;burningâ&#x20AC;? it up; and annual crops, which are represented by sweeping fields of corn, soybeans, wheat and other staples of civilization, put little of the carbon that they take in from air below ground. Agriculture is the second-highest generator of greenhouse gases. Whew, what to do? Dr. Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tack, for the past half-century, has been to focus on shifting our staples from annual to perennial crops: wheat, for instance. Kanza, a hybrid, perennial wheat under development at the Land Institute, would sequester carbon by not requiring annual tillage and by packing carbon compounds into its long-lived root system. Perennial crops also decrease opportunities for soil erosion (another source of soil loss), grow with less added fertilizer and water and have the potential to increase biodiversity for a healthier ecosystem.

The United Nations has declared 2015 â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Year of Soil.â&#x20AC;?

the environment, and some of which feed soil organisms and, in turn, plants. Better to recycle as much of those organic materials as possible into agriculture than let them go to waste or cause pollution. The bottlenecks here are cultural and political rather than agricultural. Another way, as I suggested at the conference, to make vegetable farming more sustainable would be to grow your own carbon and fertilizer. A perennial grain or hayfield could be harvested for the grain or hay for the animals or, even more efficiently, just for hay to use either as mulch or for composting. Running hay or grain through animals burns up carbon to grow and fuel the animal to the tune of, on average, about six times more than needed in terms of calories â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that is, for every six calories we grow and feed to a cow, we get only one calorie back when we eat the cow. Left to its own devices, any field will naturally build fertility. Bacteria â&#x20AC;&#x201C; free-living bacteria and symbiotic with the roots of legumes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; harvest atmospheric nitrogen and put it in the ground, and the combined action of myriad soil organisms slowly chew away at a soilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rocky matrix to release other nutrients for plant use. Plants grow, their roots oozing substances that further stimulate microbial activity and soil fertility. The key word in the previous paragraph is â&#x20AC;&#x153;slowly.â&#x20AC;? In order to be able to harvest fertilizer in the form of hay from a field year after year, sufficient time must be allowed between harvests for fertility to be garnered from the air and rocks. For that you need either more land or less harvest. The big picture, then, is to have more land, to make better choices in how the land is used, to utilize organic practices and have fewer people. With the problems of soil improvement, global warming, sustainability and agricultural production solved, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to sow onion seeds. Planted in flats in potting soil at seven seeds per inch, I should have plenty of pencil-thick seedlings ready to poke into holes in compost enriched beds in early May.

We are using up soil faster than new soil is being created â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ten to 40 times faster!

What about vegetables? How are they treating our resources? Up to the podium stepped Tim Crews, director of research at the Land Institute, to give the roomful of organic and aspiring organic vegetable farmers and gardeners bad news: Our soil care is not sustainable. All that manure hauled onto our fields or piled high into compost piles is bedded with hay or comes from animals that have been fed grain. The grain or hay was grown in fields that were fertilized, most of it with commercial fertilizer, which is mostly made from atmospheric nitrogen via the Haber-Bosch process, which requires â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you guessed it! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fossil fuel for energy. Still, the fact that organic farming and gardening waste less energy than conventional farming and gardening should assuage some of the guilt that resonated through the room. The soil of a good organic farmer or gardener will, in general, be higher in organic matter (5.4 percent versus 3.5 percent) and hence carbon. Said plot will require less water, less pesticide and less manufactured nitrogen for fertilizer. Compost, and compost alone, is how I maintain fertility in my vegetable beds. I do haul in some horse manure for that compost, and, as Dr. Crews pointed out, somewhere way back in that manureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history, fossil fuel needed to be burned. But civilization, and especially industrialized civilizations, generate many waste products, of which horse manure  is one. Picture also all the food waste from restaurants and supermarkets, autumn leaves and grass clippings that are considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;garbage,â&#x20AC;? even sewage effluent. All these organic materials contain carbon, some of which could be  sequestered in the ground, to the benefit of agriculture and

sustainable cuisine, recycled décor & authentic world flavors come together at new pop-up CIA restaurant in Hyde Park

T

he students at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park have recently created a new eatery on campus, Pangea, which is their answer to an expanding global population that wants and needs to be well-fed without straining the Earth’s capacity to yield nutritious foodstuffs. Call it cuisine ecology: the comprehensive study of how food is produced and harvested, how various foods affect our health and the health of the planet and how to honor “the diverse flavors and influences” of cultures from all over the planet. Opened to the public in January to serve dinners, Pangea is a classroom/restaurant, conceived and designed by students using

odds and ends found all over the campus: the attics and basements; the president’s office; some items were even brought in from people’s homes. Senior director of

Food and Beverage Operations Waldy Malouf calls the space “funky.” He points out the disparate conglomeration of furnishings repurposed for this eclectic space, such as a library card catalogue that holds bottles of red wine and a freestanding tool cabinet used to store flatware. “The school has been here over 50 years, so you can imagine that the attic was full of plates and silverware, posters, old tables and chairs,” he says. “We replaced the carpet, blacked out the ceiling and painted. Then we threw everything else in. We found these old classroom chairs and painted some of them red to make them pop. This palm tree actually came from my basement.” He says that the pair of chandeliers now hanging from the ceiling were donated to the school years ago but were never used. Physical elements may be mismatched, but they all come together to create a

comfortable, casual dining room: a place where students can learn what works in terms of restaurant design and where diners can experience new tastes. It was a feat accomplished with a limited budget and little time, which is another aspect of the project that serves as a learning tool. “It’s good for the students to experiment with the pop-up concept to see how it’s done,” Malouf says. “Here they worked on tabletop settings, and they were involved in the chefs’ garden wall.” He indicates herbs growing along the windows, which are used in tea service and in the kitchen as well. A wall of lettuces and greens grows under a panel of lights, which he calls “a good start for future experimental roof gardens and greenhouses.” The real success of the project, of course, comes down to the food. “The whole idea of plants and cuisine is central. Pangea is not a vegetarian restaurant – customers can choose from two menus, one with meats or fish and one without – but we call it a ‘plant-forward’ menu. There are ten prix fixe dishes: five courses with two dishes in each course. Both menus have plants and grains as the focus, which is the opposite of dishes heavy on traditional proteins. We use meats and fish sparingly to add flavor and texture. ‘Plant forward’ goes back to the way we used to eat before factory farms. Pre-World War II, people really couldn’t afford that much protein, so their diets were more vegetable-based, with a little bit of protein. Instead of the 32-ounce T-bone with a tablespoon of creamed spinach, it was the reverse: more spinach and greens and grains, with some of the flavor of the proteins.”

CIA | PHIL MANSFIELD

The name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pangeaâ&#x20AC;? refers to a time in Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history before the continents became separated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is reflective of how the world is shrinking today through technology. Twenty years ago we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t experimenting with foods from all over the world as we do today. Indian food was a cream-based curry sauce; now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more authentic, real. We can get Southeast Asian foods, foods from Latin America. Sushi is everywhere! My parents didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat raw fish! Forty years ago Chinese restaurants were â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pseudo-Chinese.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real Chinese food in restaurants. The whole-food movement is driving our exposure to all these new tastes: authentic, spicy, bold flavors.â&#x20AC;? Current items on the menu feature winter vegetables and greens, homemade tofu and seitan, rice, lentils, couscous, mussels, market fish, shrimp, grass-fed

beef and pork, with exotic and traditional sauces and spice combinations. Some selections are individually plated, while others are served to the whole table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve reached out to those different cuisines and reimagined those flavors,â&#x20AC;? says Malouf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wait staff is casually dressed; the menus are priced and designed for foodies: slightly different and less expensive than our other restaurants on campus.â&#x20AC;? Pangeaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offerings lean toward the Hudson Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locavore preference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The region is a frozen tundra right now, but in general, the CIA spends over a million dollars a year on local food products. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re currently bringing in as much dairy products and cheeses and locally produced beverages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ciders, spirits, wines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as possible. When I wrote the Hudson Valley Cookbook in 1995, it was unheard

of that this area could produce so much. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still losing farmland every day, but younger people are taking over family farms to regenerate them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We attempt to buy as much locally as possible. Part of the philosophy of the restaurant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to overintellectualize it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is to consider how what we eat affects our health, the economy and the world environment. Conscientious eating is the movement going forward, as we try to eliminate diseases and reduce the carbon footprint of 1,000 head of cattle on two acres of land, for example. That has to change; the Earth canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support it.â&#x20AC;? One of Malouf â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals is to make dining at the CIA more accessible to the community. Diners can make reservations and purchase their meal tickets online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In February, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start serving lunches, too: four courses with eight dishes in total. One of the misconceptions that people might have is that it takes a long time to eat at a CIA restaurant. In Pangea, you can plan for about an hour for lunch, or an hour and 15 minutes for dinner.â&#x20AC;? Pangeaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen is across the hall

from the dining room. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tight space equipped with a conglomeration of tools and cookware. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Again, some things were found, some were bought to outfit the kitchen,â&#x20AC;? says Malouf, who is most proud of the new Josper oven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to get more authentic flavors from around-theworld-cooking, you need a woodburning oven. We burn a bit of wood and hardwood charcoal, and use it for a number of things: Indian naan bread, smoked tofu.â&#x20AC;? Pangea is open from now until June, when this unique pop-up pops down at the end of the semester. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ann Hutton Pangea, dinner Monday-Friday, 5:30-8 p.m., $29, lunch, $19. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closed on holidays and when classes are not in session. Culinary Institute of America, 1946 Campus Drive (Route 9), Hyde Park; (845) 451-1683, www.ciarestaurantgroup.com/pangea.

ALMANAC WEEKLY

New York Conservatory for the Arts youth perform Godspell It’s hard to think, now, that the musical Godspell’s depiction of Jesus Christ and his disciples as a clown troupe in hippie gear was considered quite controversial back in the day. But then “Day by Day” became a huge hit, the musical went to Broadway and on to become a college, church and community theater staple, and the whole style of our civilization shifted – at least in terms of musical and clothing tastes. This weekend, the talented kids at the Hurley-based New York Conservatory for the Arts (NYCA) will be performing the now-classic upbeat musical, with a focus on the program’s older students, in a special “in the round” series of

performances at the Conservatory’s rural home not far from the Ashokan Reservoir. Directed by NYCA’s Randy Conti, Douglas Farrell and Jeffrey Stein, who also run the Woodstock Playhouse, the original production was based on the Gospel of Matthew and got its start at Carnegie-Mellon’s famed theater program in 1970 before hitting the boards in New York and London. Composer Stephen Schwartz later went on to write Pippin, Wicked and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Today it feels like both a window on those earlier anti-authoritarian days and something more timeless. And it’s great fun – especially in the spirited hands of all that the NYCA/Playhouse crowd does. – Paul Smart Godspell, Friday/Saturday, February 6/7, 7:30 p.m., Sunday, February 8, 2 p.m., $18, New York Conservatory for the Arts, 120 Schildknecht Road, Hurley; (845) 339-4340, www.nyca.org.

Two new exhibits will be kicking off the Arts Society of Kingston (ASK)’s First Saturday bash and month’s worth of shows at its big, warm, inviting home on lower Broadway this weekend, February 7. “Black & White,” the big draw, will pull out ASK members submitting two- and three-dimensional works “that explore line, shape, texture and surfaces in black and white,” while an accompanying show will present work by some 50plus art studio participants at the Northeast Center for Rehabilitation and Brain Injury, exhibiting “images of their personal past, their injuries, rehabilitation and visions for the future.” Everyone’s being asked to wear festive

black-and-white attire at the opening reception on Saturday night, which will run from 5 to 8 p.m. – Paul Smart “Black & White”/”Recovery Art” openings, Saturday, February 7, 5-8 p.m., through February, free, Arts Society of Kingston, 97 Broadway, Kingston; (845) 338-0333, www.askforarts.org.

“A Trip to Latin America” in Kingston What better way to get beyond the recent weeks of winter, as well as that which shall continue, than a trip down South America way – a bit of Carmen Miranda fun? For the fifth winter in a row, Renee Darmstadt and Cornell Street Studios in Midtown Kingston will be offering “A Trip to Latin America: a Multi-Arts Collaboration and Celebration” featuring a classical concert with guitarist David Temple. It happens this Saturday evening, February 7, from 6 to 10 p.m., complete with enough sultry art, music, dance, food, spirits and fashion to melt away any semblance of northern iciness. The art exhibition will include Latinthemed works from a number of the region’s more colorful artists; the fashion will be displayed via both a live runway and – get this – live mannequins! There’ll be cumbia dancing, loads of percussion and Temple’s performance of a program featuring works from Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, Peru, Paraguay, Mexico and Cuba that includes sambas and scherzos, choros and charangos. ¡Ay caramba! – Paul Smart A Trip to Latin America, Saturday, February 7, 6-10 p.m., $15, Cornell Street Studios, 168 Cornell Street, 2nd Floor, Kingston; (845) 594-4428, www.cornellstreetstudios.com.

LeLand Gantt

PLAY

RHAPSODY IN BLACK AT BARDAVON

L

eLand Gantt had an epiphany when he was in Los Angeles attending the opening of a film in 1995. “I found myself feeling isolated, and to try to save my sanity, I started writing things down,” he said. That was the genesis of Rhapsody in Black, his one-man play about his life growing up in the black ghetto of McKeesport, a depressed steel town outside Pittsburgh. In telling what it’s like growing up black and poor in America, Gantt hit a chord: Rhapsody in Black won Best Storyteller (Gantt) and Best Direction (Estelle Parsons) awards when it played at the United Solo Festival in New York last November. “As Woodie King says, ‘It’s the story of every black man in America that nobody will say out loud,’” said Parsons. Rhapsody in Black was developed in workshops at the Actors’ Studio, which is where Gantt, whom she already knew as an actor, connected with Parsons. When Gantt finally presented the complete play, “It was too good just for us, so we opened the room to the public for three weeks and it filled up with people from all over,” said Parsons. She went on to direct – a role that she describes as “directional consultant.” Local audiences can now see Rhapsody in Black, which will be performed at the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie on Friday, February 6 as part of a series on the African American experience. It will be followed on Friday, February 20 by a screening of the documentary Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People. Both the play and the film will be presented at 7 p.m. at the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie and followed by a panel discussion with prominent local African American scholars, artists, students and community leaders. To learn more about Gantt, read his Almanac Weekly interview with Lynn Woods printed in our last edition: http://bit.ly/1yx4ehi. !

Rhapsody in Black will be presented at 7 p.m. on Friday, February 6 and Through a Lens Darkly at 7 p.m. on Friday, February 20 at the Bardavon, located at 35 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, in collaboration with Vassar College and the Poughkeepsie City School District. The performance and screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring prominent local African American scholars, artists and educators as well as Gantt and Parsons (February 6) and Harris and producer Don Perry (February 20). The suggested donation is $6. Call (845) 473-2072 or (845) 339-6088 for tickets.

NIGHT SKY

Can your dog read your mind? Figuring out what’s real

W

e all want to know what’s going on. Can we adapt to higher sea levels? What are the chances for life among Jupiter’s moons? How bad are GMOs? We hear so much. The Internet is an encyclopedia of cool stuff interspersed with fantastic nonsense. How do we know what’s real? Epidemiologists deal with this all the time. They see a disease trend and try to match it up with various potential causes. Tackling such issues usually requires the help of a professional statistician. Otherwise, all sorts of things can seem true that have no validity at all. I have a book written in the 1940s, claiming that polio is caused by ice cream. Don’t laugh. It presents graphs showing polio incidence exploding each year from June through August. It offers another graph of ice cream consumption that displays the same annual pattern. Together with some reasonable-sounding arguments about why frozen dairy products should wreak havoc on the human nervous system, the author’s case seemed persuasive just after World War II. The American lifespan has never been longer than it is today. It has lengthened about a decade since many of us were kids. Thus, one mischievous thing you can do is to take anything that your friends reasonably fear, such as pesticides, and display a graph of their increased use since the 1950s. Superimpose that on another graph showing lifespan and you can “prove” that pesticide exposure makes people live longer. Obviously, probing connections and causations requires care. While epidemiologists are well-trained to avoid common pitfalls, many areas of modern life have such murky or marginal risks that their low-probability perils may never come to light. Then you have the areas outside of science, like ESP. Scientists don’t believe in it, since tests are generally negative. But if telepathy only happens spontaneously, then looking at a number or symbol and trying to convey that mentally to someone else may never work. Does this mean we can only shrug our shoulders? Another issue is this: If someone offers you an apple just as you were thinking about apples, you’ll probably deem it an example of ESP. But you ignore all the many times someone offers you something when you weren’t thinking of it. This is how science explains away ESP: as a selective-memory phenomenon. But I believe in it anyway. The “Eureka!” moment happened when I was 20 and playing Scrabble with a friend. I was staring blankly at the board, waiting for her to make her turn. Suddenly, in my mind’s eye, I saw her hand go down and place an “i” in front of a

DION OGUST | ALMANAC WEEKLY

“t” to make the word “it.” Now, Scrabble players know that no one in their right mind would play a two-point word. It’s better to throw out your rack and get new tiles than to make such a turn. But that’s what I visualized, and a second or two later that’s exactly what she did in that spot. It was startling. So, abruptly, I knew that telepathy was real. My guess is that she visualized making that turn just before physically doing it, and it somehow popped into my mind simultaneously with hers. I’ll bet that many of you have experienced ESP, too. But who can explain the mechanism? Are our brains like radio stations? Or is there really one mind in the universe? It’s a case where a valid phenomenon lacks any science support. This topic started when I got up from my computer with the intention of getting a snack and sharing some with my dog. Suddenly, the animal excitedly ran up to me, licking her chops. How could she know my intentions? Was it telepathy? Well, why not? Who’s to say which mammals can do it? Speculating about a dog reading your mind is not a good sign for anyone cherishing mental health. It seems a serious step down the slippery slope that may lead to Son-ofSamian insanity. Forget I mentioned it. Really. – Bob Berman Want to know more? To read Bob’s previous “Night Sky” columns, visit our Almanac Weekly website at HudsonValleyAlmanacWeekly.com.

real estate

When I’m involved in a real estate transaction, I’ve learned that helping to do everyone’s job makes it move more smoothly. Our manager Mitch says go the second mile and you’ll find far fewer traffic jams, and I think he is absolutely right! The difference between a good real estate agent and a GREAT one is going to that second mile and doing much more than expected; that is its own reward, and a big bonus to you as a client. Napolean Hill said, “The man who does more than he is paid for will soon be paid for more than he does.” And as George Bush put it, “I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe — I believe what I believe is right.” I have no idea what the heck he was talking about, but I thought I’d mention it anyway.

THINK SPRING!! Get the jump on the Spring Selling season. A Westwood professional can give you the seasoned advice you need NOW to prepare your property for market. Simple updates, repairs and staging can easily result in extra $$$ at closing. With over 35 years as an industry lead, Westwood has the selling strategies that can maximize your return on investment.
