“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.” ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

ulture. How do you even begin to define it? Culture is something we are, something we know and something we feel. It’s intangible to some degree. You cannot fully put into words the definition, but still we know culture. Especially Milledgeville culture. Before I even moved here I often heard my wife refer to Millegeville as the ‘Ville. The word had a certain connotation about it that screamed local and known. Everyone obviously knew the term. The fact is that we do know what the ‘Ville is and we do know the feeling we get when we hear the word. We here at the ‘Ville have taken on a huge task by trying to put that feeling onto paper. You can’t explain it. At least not well enough to sound sane. The ‘Ville itself is full of culture, full of art, and full of potential. We love it here and we want to celebrate our town and all that this culture represents to us. Our first issue covers a wide variety of the arts here from canvas to music and even fashion, which is an art form all by itself. We cover local dining, theatre, and even throw in a review of the best brew in town. I’m not sure what our goal was in planning this publication, but I do know that this town has too much to offer by way of the arts and culture to not have direct representation in publication form. We need to get the word out! Which is exactly what we plan on doing here at the ‘Ville. We hope you enjoy our first issue!

music

Elastic Skyline New band brings energy to local stage By SARAH BETH ARIEMMA There is a hot new band that is ripping through Milledgeville. A little edgy and harsh, they are a band with static power that has the ability to ignite those who attend a show with a feeling of urgency. The Elastic Skyline is relatively new to the Milledgeville scene, but the attendance of their concerts proves they have real staying power. Four musicians: Brandon Marsolo who plays guitar for the group; Taylor Lamb, drums; Alex Pound, Bass; and Ryan Anderson, another guitarist, decided in November 2009 to create the listening experience that is The Elastic Skyline. “I used to live in Athens,” Marsolo said, casually flicking his cigarette ash onto

the pavement. “My friend, Mike Williams just got into the music business and he’s been helping us to book shows.” The group is close, preferring to spend time together both inside musical genius and outside the world of sets and lights. “There is so much satisfaction of playing good music with good people. When we first started playing together, it just fit.” Lamb stated. “These are great guys and they’ve got a lot of talent. It is an honor to be with them making great music.” The group debuted at Amici Italian Cafe back in January. The attendance shocked the fledgling group, as the excitement in the air was generated due to their music. “It was a great feeling, you know?” Lamb described: “It was the best show that

Band members Brandon Marsolo, Taylor Lamb, Alex Pound and Ryan Anderson of the Elastic Skyline. we’ve ever played. The energy was so high.” Pound jumped in. He’s the kind of man who ensures he is heard. It is little wonder he’s in the band. “The best way to describe our sound is jam-funk-fusion rock. It is very psychedelic,” he explained, taking a swig of his drink. The Elastic Skyline is about music that livens the senses. A typical show inspires, and gives a feeling of power to the listener. The music is loud — so loud it can drown out any other thoughts. The band is a perfect escape for those who come out and listen. Milledgeville is not the only area to house the band. A few gigs have been booked in the Athens area, to rave reviews. The band is also going digital. “We’re hoping to record a live release at New Earth Music Hall in Athens. Hopefully we’ll get to release that soon,” chimed Ryan Anderson, bringing the band a few more Solo cups. The Elastic Skyline still has a deep love of Milledgeville, and the downtown area. “Good times are there to be had. We’re a part of that,” Pound explained. “In Milledgeville, we make our own fun. When you come out to our shows, you won’t be disappointed. We’re college kids in a college town, and our music reflects that. But it’s a little edgier too. It makes us worth listening to.” Marsolo had the last word. “We’re taking this all around the South first. We’ll continue playing as long as people will listen. We’re coming soon to a town near you!” The Elastic Skyline toasted to the promise of those words.

Q & A

Phillip Joiner, Milledgeville’s 4th District City Councilman, recently sat down with the ‘Ville to share insight from his first year in office. Phillip Joiner announced nearly two years ago his intentions to run for Milledgeville City Council, and in the months leading up to last November’s election, he waged a campaign heavily supported by local college-age voters and young residents of the district.

In the race for the city’s fourth district, he defeated two opponents, John Alton and Ed “Dodo” Hollis, to gain the opportunity to represent Milledgeville’s downtown district following the retirement of 27-year alderman Ken Vance. With public perception and expecta-

tions high for local elected officials everywhere as the city works to transform itself and embrace new economic development opportunities, Joiner recently shared insight on his first year in office, a year that has had its share of tumultuous moments where he’s some-

times found himself placed under the microscope of public scrutiny. He recently spoke about what he’s learned about public office, getting things done in local government and about himself during his first six months in office.


Summer 2010 Q. Give us an update on the city’s seal project and where things stand with the re-design. A. The plan is still in place. There’s been some things that have taken away from the plan temporarily, but we’ve gotten feedback on the original concept and we’ve marketed on local radio and cable access. The next phase (later this summer) will be getting design ideas … some people question the use of taxpayer money [for the project] but, in fact, it will not cost the city money from any perspective. Q. There’s been a lot of discussion during the past several months about which direction the City of Milledgeville should take to re-establish or re-invent itself, what do you think is the next step to get this community to the next phase in that process? A. There’s an old saying: The definition of insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expecting different results. It’s about getting involved. There are a lot of community groups out there. If people want to be a part of the new Milledgeville, they need to ask questions. I encourage them to find out what’s going on. Q. What do you think it will take to get the arts destination movement off the ground in Milledgeville? Since this is an arts and culture publication, what do you think of the future of the arts in Milledgeville? A. Since I was a baby, I’ve grown up around the arts. My father was a professional violinist, my mother has a degree in music and my brother is an accomplished musician. I think the arts and culture movement in Milledgeville has a tremendous future. There are a lot of things still in the works. There are a great number of people who care about the arts in Milledgeville … and want to see things grow. Having a liberal arts college here helps to really push Milledgeville forward to be a mecca of the arts. I think it’s a good marriage. I’m excited for The ‘Ville, and I’m excited for the community to have this. I’ve grown up a fan of arts and entertainment. Q. The City of Milledgeville received a black eye from some national media publications during the Ben Roethlisberger investigation. How do you think this community, which has so much to offer culturally, can move past such misconceptions? A. We have to remember we didn’t invite that gentleman to Milledgeville. Anytime you have a rare situation where there’s a very famous person in a small town, people are going to make their judgments. I think, as they say, this too shall pass. There are too many people here who care about Milledgeville, and I think we just need to continue to move

Page 7 forward with things like promoting arts and entertainment and continue to show that Milledgeville has art and cultural significance. Q. What areas do you think need to be strengthened to build greater communication in local government? Build community involvement? A. Now that I have a different perspective, I think it’s really easy to sit back and make assumptions and complain. Trying to stay positive when things are going a little downhill is more the challenge. There’s strength in numbers. The best business people don’t sit around and wait for success. They go get it. Q. At recent community forums, there has been some discussion of consolidation of city and county services. What are your thoughts on consolidation? A. I grew up in Athens, and from a young age I watched the consolidation process in Athens. I am aware of the benefits. Right now, what we need is stability, however. I would be interested in ideas on some departments consolidating so we develop and formulate ideas and see how things work. There are a lot of financial issues to consider — people’s retirement and others. I’m not opposed to consolidation, I just think we need to consider it small and carefully. I think any big undertaking needs a template. There is no community in the southeast [Georgia] that I’ve found [with a population similar to Milledgeville’s] that has consolidated. I think any big undertaking needs a template. Q. What have you learned specifically about the 4th District in your conversations with constituents and business owners? A. My district is such a unique district. Part of the south side of town is included in my district. We also have the downtown area, which is undergoing a facelift right now. Then there are the colleges. It’s a neat combination of a lot of different things in a small district. As I said as I was running for office, I’m trying to extend the lines of communication [within the district and among constituents] and get people really working together. When you put them together, you can come up with some very good ideas. Q. What response have you gotten from constituents about the next phase of Streetscape? A. I think a large majority of people understand why we’re doing Streetscape. Take for example Streetscape Phase I … [despite early opposition and concerns] once it was done, it was roundly said that it was beautiful and it made a difference. It was really a welcome addition. I think the majority of people know that when this

phase is done it will make a difference and look beautiful as well. Q. Looking at the remainder of 2010 and looking forward to 2011, where does Milledgeville go from here? A. It’s tough to be patient in times like these. Patience doesn’t feed your family, but there are a lot of leaders that are very clearly aware of the challenges. I think Milledgeville has too much pride and determination to fail. I was prepared for a lot of what I’ve experienced [on Council]. I had to learn that when issues come up, well-intentioned people always have their opinions of the good of the City of Milledgeville. Being able to respond to those opinions and being able to work with people is what I enjoy most. Q. What have you learned about yourself during the first six months of this experience and what do you look most forward to as a member of Council in the future? A. I’ve learned that even though I was very involved in the city before getting elected, I now have a very unique perspective on how things work and how they don’t work. There are a lot of people who care greatly about Milledgeville, and they put in a lot of time in helping to make things better. It takes a special kind of person to be able to be patient with the process. I’ve learned patience, and no matter what I

always want to make a decision that is in the best interest of the entire City of Milledgeville. I want to always do what I think is right in my heart for Milledgeville. I want to look at this process as a one-term process, meaning I want to use these four years that I have to make the district better for the person who works after me. I’m following in the legacy of a person who served this district very well. He put me in a better place to serve this district. I hope I can follow that legacy. —Compiled by Natalie Davis

Sam Adams Summer Ale refreshing and easy Jimmy Holder, Good Beer Afficionado When I received the invitation to write this column, I happened to be enjoying a room temperature ale in two mugs, haphazardly filled with head from a hasty pour, in the renowned McSorley’s pub in New York City. They serve one beer: their own. Honestly, it’s nothing special, but looking around the century and a half old pub I noticed an eclectic mix of people enjoying the brew and merriment, male and female alike. Beer has that power of indiscriminate likeability. Regardless if you’re content with the mass marketed and readily available standards or if you prefer a unique one-off seasonal crafted by a micro-brewer without glitz or fan fare, ultimately it is beer that tickles your fancy like no liquor or wine is able. Writing a column on beer requires knowledge and respect for both kinds of palates. However, it also implies exploring beyond brews available anywhere at anytime. My first recommendation is indeed a summer seasonal. There are many great summer offerings out there this year, but Samuel Adams Summer Ale on draft is my debut choice. It beautifully offers a refreshing easiness, which is a must in Milledgeville’s hot humid summers, but at the same time, surprises me with its many nuances. It touts that it is brewed with lemon zest and grains of paradise, but after a few sips its flavor profile exudes much more. Not only are subtle tastes of lemon present, but also emerging are hints of peach and mango delicately balanced with a gentle peppery bite. Samuel Adams Summer Ale can be found in a bottle by the six-pack at our local package stores and a few grocery stores. The bottled edition is definitely worthy of praise, but on draft, served around 38 degrees, this beer really shines. To taste for yourself check out The Brick in Downtown Milledgeville. Cheers.

Who’s afraid of the big bad sushi? Cast your fears aside, Kuroshima satisfies everyone from novices to sushi addicts By LAUREN DAVIDSON When it comes to preference for preparation type, sushi often initiates debate amongst friends. Some people are turned off by the thought of eating raw fish, while others cannot get enough. If you haven’t been brave enough to venture into a sushi bar, Kuroshima Sushi & Steakhouse will surprise you with its variety of menu options for all kinds of sushi connoisseurs. Earlier this week I dined at Kuroshima’s and ordered three delicious specialty sushi rolls. Each had their own distinctive taste and will satisfy any customer — whether they’re a sushi addict like me or they’re new to this Japanese-style of cuisine. Sushi rolls at Kuroshima’s run anywhere from $3.25 to $11.95. Most of the rolls are eight pieces, but they also offer six-piece rolls for anyone looking to enjoy a small meal. To start off, I tried the Philadelphia roll, a good choice for first-time sushi eaters. Priced at $5.50, this eight-piece roll is filled with salmon, cream cheese and avocado. Yes, I know it has raw fish in it, but trust me this sushi roll will not let your taste buds down. If you are still hesitant about eating raw fish, try the California roll. It’s the basic roll of sushi that consists of an outer layer of rice wrapped around a sheet of seaweed that firmly holds together crabstick, small pieces of

cucumber and a dab of avocado. The next two rolls I tried were excellent. The Rainbow roll is a sushi roll all seafood lovers must try. Priced at $9.95, this eight-piece roll is a basic California roll with tuna, fluke (tilapia) and salmon draped on top of it. It’s sure to satisfy your seafood cravings. The final roll I tasted was my favorite, as deep fried sushi rolls have always been at the top of my list. The Spicy Tuna Tempura roll met all of my expectations. Priced at $6.50, this eight-piece roll is a deep fried spicy tuna roll with a spicy mayo and eel sauce drizzled on top. This roll had a spicy and sweet

taste to it. If you aren’t in the mood for sushi, Kuroshima Sushi & Steakhouse also offers a variety of Japanese cuisine. Next time you’re looking for a great place to dine, run over to Kuroshima Sushi & Steakhouse. They offer excellent service, amazing food and a great atmosphere for its customers to dine in.

culture

With and for the city New City Milledgeville looks to become part of cultural fabric By NATALIE DAVIS Ryan Lyons is a recent transplant to Milledgeville, but even though he’s still familiarizing himself with the area, that certainly doesn’t mean he can’t recognize its potential. Where downtown storefronts sit presently idle, Lyons sees an arts and cultural movement on the horizon, and he aims to make his church a major part of the transformation. Perusing the downtown area, Lyons spends his days getting to know Milledgeville, its people and its culture, scoping out locales to plant his new church home. For Lyons, lead pastor of New City Milledgeville, the downtown area and all its cultural promise, is the perfect backdrop. “We believe that’s the central hub here, of where arts and culture is happening, and we really want to engage that,” said Lyons of his church. “We want to go where the people are and be a part of that.” New City Milledgeville is less than conventional in its cultural approach. “We believe God is creator and that he created everything, and he’s done so with creativity,” said Lyons. Creativity through arts and music is evidence of the image of God, he said. “We want to celebrate that,” said Lyons. “We don’t want to run from that.” The church prides itself on being neither fundamentalist nor liberal, but instead rooted in the foundation of Biblical principles and values. “We don’t want to pretend like nothing matters,” said Lyons. “We just want to be what we believe is the model of Jesus.” Rather, he says, the aim is to speak the good news of the Gospel through culture to all voices and all people. The idea to establish New City Milledgeville actually came together several months back when Lyons, who hails from Warner Robins and lived in Louisville, Ky. for the past six years, had a conversation with New City Downtown Macon lead pastor Keith Watson. “I had a conversation with [Watson]. New City Macon was already wanting to plant a church in Milledgeville … [and] we moved down this way.” Several weeks since that initial conversation, Watson agrees that Milledgeville is filled with promise. His church is actively involved in community, arts and culture in the downtown Macon area, playing host to local artists and bands, open mic performances, and giving back to local causes, serving as a blueprint for New City Milledgeville. “When we started we rented a 1,600 square foot storefront space on Cherry Street in Macon,” said Watson of New City Macon’s beginnings. “We knew from the start we didn’t just want a typical church building, and we really wanted to connect with the community in Macon.” The Macon church hosts art openings once a month for local artists, with a different artist’s work displayed and sold each month in the church gallery and the artists keep the profits. “We wanted to use our space for the arts,” said Watson. “We wanted to be a part

of Macon’s revitalization.” New City Milledgeville aims to do the same. With the Macon church as a model, Lyons says the church aims to work both in the community and with the community. “[Downtown] is the place where all different groups of people come to,” he said. But, while the church has a heavy focus on celebrating the arts, it’s not just open to creative types. “We just want to be a church that loves all types of people,” said Lyons. “Our mission at New City Church Milledgeville is to see the Gospel transform everything within our reach — ourselves, our church, our city and the world.” Watson says Macon and similarly Milledgeville both embody and imbue the culture of the colleges that surround the cities, and it’s imperative that the local community hold on to that. “I think it is a wonderful part both for Macon and Milledgeville, because the music and visual arts — it’s an attraction to the creatives,” said Watson. “Rather than having those students come and go, what we would ultimately have them do is come and stay.” Lyons and New City Milledgeville are still looking for just the right downtown venue, but in the meantime, Lyons is enjoying getting to know the people of Milledgeville — their hopes, their dreams and their cultural ambitions. “We want to participate in the city — in the city and for the city.” Engraining New City Milledgeville long-term into the local fabric and culture. “We’re just excited,” he said. “I’m just really excited to see the church start here. To see a church that doesn’t run from the culture it’s in.” Said Lyons: “It seems like downtown [Milledgeville] is moving in that direction. We at New City want to help in fueling that.” —To find out more about New City Milledgeville, visit www.newcitymilledgeville.org or check out their Facebook fan page.

...liberty and healthcare for all? We love to hear what people think about the current issues that affect us all and it’s always interesting to hear a man’s take on something as opposed to a woman’s take on the same issue. Here at the ‘Ville we posed the question “How do you feel about the new federal healthcare bill?” to see how both men and women reacted. Below are two of those responses.

Mon. 3-7, Tues., Wed., Thurs. 10-4

451 S. Wayne Street

Frank Williams “I think that healthcare should stay the way it was. There was nothing wrong with the way that things were going. I’m very against it, and there was nothing that needed to be fixed. It will just cause problems in the long run, and I don’t want to have to pay extra money for people who don’t work, or wait in line for hours in order to see a doctor for “free.” I hate the whole thing.”

Christina Pratt “I work at a pharmacy, so I get to see firsthand government aid for healthcare. I wouldn’t say that I am opposed to it because I don’t think that anyone should be denied the right to healthcare, but at the same time I think that there are plenty of people who are, and will abuse it. So unless there are some strict regulations, I don’t necessarily know if it is the best idea.”

man on the street

Our Man on the Street feature catches unsuspecting local people and asks them “What are you listening to?” or “What are you reading right now?” These off the cuff answers are sure to give us some insight into great new reads and tunes.

WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO NOW? Ashley Muir “It Still Moves,” My Morning Jacket My Morning Jacket's 2003 album is deep stride away from previous albums. Their first under Dave Matthews' label ATO Records, Jim Jones' songwriting is tighter than a new pair of sneaks and the production holds true to their sung-in-a-silo echo. Notable songs: “Golden,” “Mahgeetah,” “One Big Holiday” Artists also worth a listen: Wilco, The Black Keys, Drive-By-Truckers “Everything All The Time,” Band of Horses Debut albums, hate to say it, end up being an artist's best hit. And yes, “Everything All The Time” is great. But like a fine cheese, this band's music has only gotten better. Singer Ben Bridwell's singing isn't despairing when he says, "At every occasion, I'm ready for a funeral," nor is it self-absorbed. There are no coffeehouse acoustic aesthetics in this album. Instead, there are roaring guitars and reverberating vocal melodies, all wrapped in a patience meant for surgeons. Notable songs: “Great Salt Lakes,” “The Funeral,” “The First Song” Artists also worth a listen: Fleet Foxes, The National, Arcade Fire

female drummer, a mohawk reminiscent of The Misfits, and they’re from Utah (...what?). But their undeniably catchy single, “Animal,” claps up and down the track enough to convert anyone. Notable songs: “Animal”, “Sins of My Youth,” “Your Surrender” Artists also worth a listen: Two Door Cinema Club, Mike Snow, The Killers “Far,” Regina Spektor Regina Spektor's fifth album has everything you'd expect. Spektor's now notorious baby-like coos, a strong piano melody, and notes high enough to knock out Bob Marley. But in some ways, that's not enough. By number five, an artist is well-seasoned with major stride away from their first attempt but Spektor's noise-based chorus in "Eet" isn't necessarily growth. Notable songs: “Blue Lips”, “Eet” Artists also worth a listen: Rilo Kiley, Ingrid Michaelson, Kate Nash “I and Love and You,” The Avett Brothers Notable songs: “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promises,” “I and Love and You,” “January Wedding” Artists also worth a listen: Blitzen Trapper, My Morning Jacket, Old Crow Medicine Show Emily Davidson

Trouble, Ray LaMontagne Singer-Songwriter Ray LaMontagne's voice cannot be ignored. If he was singing any lecture, everyone's ears would melt from sheer emotion. But with any lecture, the same tempo can put the class to sleep. The same goes for LaMontagne's slow-tempo rhythm. But LaMontagne's seriousness and raw emotion lets you forgive any dullness a listener might feel. Notable songs: “Jolene,” “Trouble,” “Hold You In My Arms” Artists also worth a listen: Bon Iver, Van Morrison, David Gray

“Treats,” Sleigh Bells Notable songs: “Rill Rill,” “Tell 'Em,” “Crown on The Ground” Artists also worth a listen: M.I.A., Toro Y Moi, Neon Indian “Teen Dream,” Beach House Notable Songs: “Lover of Mine,” “Norway,” “Silver Soul” Artists also worth a listen: Girls, St. Vincent, Local Natives “The Lonesome Crowed West,” Modest Mouse

Kim Bradley “Habits,” Neon Trees Recently emerged band Neon Trees has a lot going on. A

Jamie Coats “Twilight” series by Stephanie Meyer To say the Twilight series has swept the nation would be a huge blood-engorged understatement. But all that aside, Stephanie Meyer's first foray into writing does its job right with dreamy love interests, longingly stares, fights over the heart of Belle (metaphorically and literally). It’s a classic boyfights-for-girl love story, plus a few vampires, werewolves and superpowers. So it’s normal?

{ New gallery owner uses folk art to speak to her soul The FolksArt Gallery By LAUREN DAVIDSON It was her first time back to her hometown of Milledgeville. On a January afternoon she stepped into Blackbird Coffee and noticed that the establishment was featuring art by local artists. Looking around Kim Joris, owner of The FolksArt Gallery, thought to herself, “Wow this is not the Milledgeville I grew up in, I could come home.” “Their space inspired me, with the walls how they were.” she recently recalled. After leaving the coffee shop, she walked further down the street and noticed a building. After stepping inside and learning of the space’s availability, she decided to come back to her hometown. Before returning to Milledgeville she resided in Brasstown, N.C. where she taught recycle art classes at John C. Campbell Folk School and Little/Middle Folk School. In the past she has taught many classes to children, middle school and high school students and even senior citizens. Although she made a ‘D’ in her first high school art class, Joris eventually found a way to express herself through folk art. Joris speaks passionately about her thoughts on this genre of art.

“I think it’s true, it’s honest, and for me fork art basically speaks to my soul,” said Joris. She is inspired by the folk art genre and loves the work done by artists such as Ruby Williams, Rob Withrow and the late Howard Finster. Her gallery, The FolksArt Gallery, opened its doors to the public May 5 at 108 W. Hancock St. The gallery houses art created by anyone from an untrained artist to an art major at Georgia College & State University. Joris says they will have a variety of art hung on their walls. “We’re going to have a variety but most of it will be some sort of folk art. There’s mixed media, pottery, clay, raku, recycle art (reuse art), acrylics and we might end up with color pencil drawings,” said Joris. The Milledgeville community not only has the chance to view the beautiful artwork hung on the walls of the FolksArt Gallery, but they will also have the chance to participate in various art classes held within the gallery. At these classes, different artist, designers, potters and jewelers will put on demonstrations. “It’s an opportunity to basically meet the artist, many of whom are from the Milledgeville area and or have connections to Milledgeville,” Joris said.

“Wow, this is not the Milledgeville I grew up in, I could come home.” ~Kim Joris,Owner Folk Art Gallery

music

Nappy Roots Releases New Album By NATALIE DAVIS It’s the summer of 2008, and across the airwaves, the sing-songy track “Good Day” is gaining steam for Milledgeville native Melvin “Fish Scales” Adams and his Nappy Roots bandmates. The single helped to establish the group’s third release, “The Humdinger,” garnering Top 10 standing on the Billboard Rap charts. Now flash-forward as the rapping quintet returns this summer with their follow-up release, “The Pursuit of Nappyness,” which stays true to their Southern roots. The group’s fourth official release, “Pursuit,” is true to Nappy Roots form, rich on wordplay extolling the virtues of back roads and the slow and syrupy elixir of Southern life. With lyrics that take listeners “deep down in the streets of Georgia,” as Scales expounds on the lead track, “Ride,” this and other songs such as “Come Back Home,” and “Right Place,” tout the virtues of staying positive and staying true to your roots, while tracks like “All for You,” pay homage to their fans and loyal listeners. In a 2008 interview, Adams elaborated on the group’s positive mindset. “We don’t rap about being gangsters,” he said, “or being killers. We always try to bring something positive.” Adams, a 1995 Baldwin High School grad, met up with Kentucky natives Skinny DeVille, B. Stille, Ron Clutch, Big V and Oakland, Calif. native R. Prophet back in the 1990s while attending Western Kentucky University on a basketball scholarship. R. Prophet has since left the group, which now performs as a quintet. They came onto the national hip-hop scene back in 2002 with their debut multi-platinum album, “Watermelon, Chicken and Gritz,” on the Atlantic label, which featured the hit-singles “Headz Up,” “Awnaw,” and “Po' Folks.” The group has since gone the independent route, under Nappy Roots Entertainment Group, releasing mix

tapes along the way. “The Pursuit of Nappyness,” recently hit stores and iTunes with the debut single, “Ride.” True Nappy Roots fans can appreciate that they don’t extend themselves too far from their typical comfort zone. The group members are and forever will be country born and bred and their music still reflects it, yet they’re not afraid to paint lyrical images of societal issues such as the economy and war. Overall, they’re still mellow, Southern and staying positive. As Fish Scales puts it on the album’s debut single: “Sometimes, you just gotta ride.”

There are some fabulous and welldressed people in Milledgeville, and one needs only to walk downtown to see them. One of these is GCSU student Joanna Sullivan. She is a freshman mass communication student whose main goal in life it to work at Vogue and meet lots of different people. When she was spotted on the street downtown, Sullivan was wearing Toms shoes she painted herself. She loves Toms Shoes because of their charitable deeds. “I painted my shoes like loafers because I really like menswear,” said Sullivan. This menswear obsession is certainly unique, and by it she doesn’t mean dressing like a man — just that you can adapt whatever into your wardrobe. She likes more masculine pieces like her loafers, but she often pairs them with frilly tops to keep the outfit looking feminine. A belt and a shirt from her favorite store, J. Crew, topped off one recent outfit, mixed with shorts from Anthropologie. She loves shopping, which is obvious by her great style. She often shops when she goes home to Atlanta, but she shops here in town too. “The French Vill’edge is like a little oasis here in Milledgeville,” Sullivan said. Sullivan, who writes her own fashion blog, promotes shopping at vintage stores to save money as well. Like any fashionista, Sullivan has fashion pet peeves. She loves uniqueness and hates when people dress the same. She challenges people to break out of the mold and stop wearing sweatpants to class or just black suits to work. On her inspirations Sullivan cites classic beauties like Grace Kelly for her elegance and charm. “Everyday people inspire me sometimes and I try to adapt different aspects of their style into mine,” said Sullivan Sullivan enjoys going to school in Milledgeville. “This town is underrated. The people are extremely friendly, and its architecture inspires me everyday,” said Sullivan. She has a local favorite restaurant in Aubri Lane’s. She loves their cuisine. “They blend classic Southern food with a little uptown flair.”

Black Box Theatre Comes Alive ‘Steel Magnolias’ unveiled as first major production for Black Box Theatre By SARAH BETH ARIEMMA The Black Box Theatre, inside the newly renovated Campus Theatre, is alive with the promise of a new space, productions grand in scale, and a deeper knowledge of the art of theater. After Georgia College purchased the dilapidated building in 2008, plans for its use took effect and in April, the grand opening of the building was met with great enthusiasm. The Black Box Theatre will debut its first large performance Nov. 9, which will run through Nov. 14, and the 17th through the 21st. Iona Pendergast, who teaches a theatrical heritage course at Georgia College, will direct “Steel Magnolias.” The production is based off of the off-Broadway play written by Robert Harling to express his devastation at the death of his sister. Steel Magnolias was also made into an award winning film of the same name. The plot line revolves around six Southern women who endure heartache due to a close friend’s struggle with Type 1 diabetes, and share

laughter along the way. The play is deeply emotional; however there is a wide vein of humor that gives way to an emotional catharsis that should inspire the audience to bestow a standing ovation. It is the perfect play to be shared with close friends and family. Audition dates are set for Aug. 17, and callbacks are Aug. 18. The play calls for six women, and the entirety of the play takes place in Truvy’s Beauty Parlor. “I’m a traditionalist,” Pendergast explained. “I’m going to stick to the script and not add in additional characters like the movie did. The energy between six very strong Southern women will be enough without ever having to add anyone. It’s going to be a very heart-warming story to remind us all that life goes on.” Steel Magnolias is part of Georgia College & State University’s “Season of Home” lineup. Many of the productions set to take place in the fall of this year feature a strong Southern tie, and fascinating characters to inspire the audience and celebrate Southern pride. The lineup is a collaborative effort of the entire theater department.

The Black Box Theatre not only serves as a showcase, but also as a hands-on classroom. Actors who participate in higher-level acting classes can hone their skills in this professional-style black box theater, while having plenty of room to maneuver around props, backdrops and scripts. Before the theater was available for student use, actors were confined to classrooms not suitable for a true picture of how the blocking and stage directions should be carried out. Now that the theater is available for classroom use, it is easier for both student and teacher to perfect the fine craft of acting and teaching alike. Larger classrooms on the third wing of the theater are also available for use. The immense dressing room features large lights and full mirrors in which the actors can apply makeup for a show, or look on to a makeup lecture. Inside the dressing room, a full washer and dryer are available to wash costumes after a show and the room can also house a full wardrobe. Steel Magnolias will feature 8 o’clock showings every night and a 2 o’clock Sunday matinee.
