Tell @wkdr what you would call your new band.

I dont mind working to get a story, but its nice, and sometimes flattering, when your interview subjects come to you. When Breaking Benjamin and Lifer guitarist Aaron Fink felt his new band, Stardog Champion, was ready to announce their debut concert at Brews Brothers West in Luzerne, his first call was to The Weekender, and we were more than honored to conduct the groups very first interview, meeting Fink and vocalist Nick Coyle at The Woodlands Inn for a casual hour-long chat. If you were one of the many fans across the country wondering where these talented musicians ended up, now

youll have many of your questions answered. To hear the band for yourself, visit theweekender. com to download the first single When We Fall and watch the accompanying music video. So why did they choose The Weekender? Just check out our interviews, photos, videos, and album and concert reviews its an even mix of local, national, and international acts each and every week. Music is as important to us as the musicians who play it. If bands are recognizing that, we hope you will, too. -Rich Howells, Weekender Editor

I agree with Justin Bieber. Anne Frank wouldve loved his stuff. Its perfect for being played really really quietly so no one can hear it.

Mock Sun burns bright in the dark

Who

WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2013

By Bill Thomas

Weekender Correspondent
The fringe is home for Mark Wohl and Jami Kali. Together, the self-described dream folk duo crafts ethereal, bohemian rock with a shadowy, psychedelic bite as Wilkes-Barre band Mock Sun. Its a unique sound, shape-shifting from haunting to twee and back again. Though distinctive and dynamic, such idiosyncrasy has somewhat ostracized the pair from the local scene, dominated as it arguably is by more traditional indie, alternative, and hardcore music. We dont fit in anywhere, musically, Wohl says. Theres the (River Street Jazz Caf) scene, which is really jammy, and theres still remnants of the punk scene that was big at Caf Metropolis. Its hard for us to find people we can play with or even places we can do so comfortably. Rather than let that get them down, though, Wohl and Kali said their outsider status has only emboldened their independent spirit and continually encourages them to remember why they play music in the first place. I get a sense of satisfaction whenever someone finds something in what Im trying to do creatively, when I can make that connection, Kali, who also records trancedout trip-hop music as a solo act in addition to writing poetry and selfpublishing an annual creative writing zine called The Vein, says. I love it when someone understands and enjoys what Im going for, but that drive to do something creative, whatever it may be, is a drive to express ourselves. In the end, Im doing it for myself. That art-for-arts sake attitude is foremost at the heart of Mock Suns first EP, The Lucid Paper Palace Project. Originally released in 2011, Wohl and Kali recently remixed, remastered, and, as of this week, re-released their seven-track debut album. In addition to a digital version being available online via the groups Bandcamp page, physical copies will also be available when Mock Sun performs this Saturday as part of the Record Store Day festivities at Musical Energi (59 N. Main St., Wilkes-Barre), where Wohl, not far from a living embodiment of the
Mock Sun and Astorian Stigmata: April 20, 7 p.m., Musical Energi (59 N. Main St., Wilkes-Barre). Free. Info: mock-sun.bandcamp.com.

What
record store geek, just so happens to work. Viewing Mock Sun as more of a studio project than a live band (quotes around studio because the band members record all their material themselves, with their own equipment, in classic do-it-yourself fashion), Kali says the reason for redoing the The Lucid Palace Paper Project was because the band is an ongoing process. It evolves along with the individuals within it and improves as they acquire new gear and skills. Hearing the richer, more polished production of the remastered E.P., its clear Mock Sun has indeed evolved quite a bit since its impromptu origins. It was a very spur-of-the-moment thing, Kali said, a sly, sidewise smile tugging at the corner of her mouth as she recalls the night in question. Wed gone for a long drive in the woods before coming back to Marks house. He was always looking for people to jam with and was playing with one of our friends, who was doing hand percussions. So I got a colander and some sticks and joined in and just started putting words to it, really stream of consciousness, making up a song about this creepy picture Mark had on his wall of a little girl standing in a barn with a look of fear on her face. That became Black Eyed Susan, the first song we did together. With colanders and creepy pictures squarely in the past, Mock Suns future includes the bands first full-length album, due out this summer. Sure enough, the album promises to continue Mocks Sun auditory evolution. It has taken a different turn because were different people now. Theres more frustration fueling my writing, I think, Kali says. Its very tribal. I wouldnt use that phrase, dream folk, anymore.

is the only guy that could get away with uorescent duds and socks with sandals as his signature style? Its area native Jay McCarroll, winner of the inaugural season of fashion competition Project Runway. The designer will be at Outrageous (Midtown Village, 41 S Main St., Wilkes-Barre) April 20 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. The store was one of the rst retailers to carry the Jay McCarroll label. McCarroll makes it a point to check in where his roots lie. You can travel the world over, yet theres nothing as refreshing as being with the ones who love and support you in the place where you grew up, he said in a press release.

Where

is going on at Clam Diggers (1946 Rt. 6, Scranton/Carbondale Highway) on April 28 at 3 p.m.? Its a benet bash for Jessie and family, a woman who was injured when struck by a drunk driver in November. The single mother of an autistic child, she is now unable to work for at least six months while she recovers. The $7 donation at the door will go towards paying medical expenses. The event is presented by Molten Management and hosted by Nikki Stone and Freddie Fabbri with lighting by Tony Valvano. It is sponsored by Cold Case Beer Store (Exeter), 707 Auto (Avoca), Original White House Hoagies (Scranton), Nick of Time Printing (Dallas), Avenue Auto Sales & Service (Exeter), Calabria Pizzaria (Dunmore), The Last DJs (Scranton), Serges Barber Shop (Scranton), and Fundraising USA (Wilkes-Barre).

WEDNESDAY,

Support record stores Saturday, and every day


It seems silly to devote only day a year to certain holidays. Obviously, you should love your mother and father every day, you should respect the Earth and all its inhabitants every day, and yes, you should support your local record store every day. Record Store Day has been one of my favorite holidays for the last couple of years. For one Saturday in April every year, bands and labels do something special just to celebrate one of the greatest American institutions of them all the local record store. We have limited color 7-inches and LPs, reissues, splits, new records, B-sides you name it, and it will be available on Record Store Day. RSD not only happens locally but reaches all around the globe. People come together to support one thing, and that thing is buying records and supporting local record stores. We are extremely fortunate to have a chain of local record stores in our area. I cant count the amount of places I have traveled to on tour where kids have to resort to buying records at large chains that cannot stock the special interests of its minority customers. Not that there is anything wrong with buying a record where you also buy your toilet paper, but it just seems right to buy a record from a shop that specializes in bringing the joy of music right to you. The great thing about Record Store Day is not only are you able to buy releases from the likes of Bob Dylan and Ringo Starr, but that you can also find releases from smaller and even local bands. Last year, Scranton natives The Menzingers album Chamberlain Waits was released on sn ice-cool blue vinyl, and this year, Title Fight has a split 7-inch coming out just in time for the holiday on limited red vinyl. At times, I think about Record Store Day and my thoughts go from excitement to worry. Roughly a decade ago, digital music changed the face of the music industry. Today, when someone hears a song, they dont have to buy a tape, record, or CD they can just download the song (legally or illegally, your pick) and never set foot in a record store. Yes, this is convenient, but he or she wont have the opportunity to peruse the aisles looking for other records that may peak their interest or even meet people interested in the same music as them. While the thoughts of an everchanging music world are more than enough to get my head spinning, something like Record Store Day keeps me grounded. Maybe things will never go back to the way they used to be, but that doesnt mean that we have to prepare for the death of the music industry. Instead, we should find joy in days like Record Store Day, which celebrates the past, present, and future of music. If you need any recommendations, I would suggest one of the Revelation Records RSD releases of the year: the Slipknot 7-inch on orange. Not that Slipknot, but an older band of the same name. This Slipknot is from New York City and formed five years before the famed Iowa metal act. This is a very odd selection from the Rev catalog, but nonetheless an integral part of the labels discography. And for those who want to support the occasion but dont own a record player or collect records, theres good news. Gallery of Sound (186 Mundy St., Wilkes-Barre) is having great local bands such as Grey Zine, These Elk Forever, and Petal playing throughout the day. Support Record Store Day 2013.

The Touchpants experience


By Ryan OMalley
Weekender Correspondent
Why didnt we have a naked group Skype interview? drummer Jon Fishman asked during a conference call to talk about his band Touchpants, who will be at the River Street Jazz Caf on Thursday, April 18. That should be the new policy: if you want to do a conference interview with Touchpants, its going to be a naked group Skype interview. While the suggestion may seem unorthodox, it perfectly illustrates the dysfunctional family feeling that is Touchpants. Formed in 2002, the comedy-rock troupe Fishman, guitarists/vocalists Colby Dix and Chris Friday, and bassist Aram Bedrosian has been infesting clubs in the Northeast region with its penchant for shocking, vulgar, and downright offensive lyrics and stage banter, yet still deliver some tight rock grooves in the midst of all the craziness. The bands approach to things should certainly be taken with a grain of salt, especially considering the way it was formed. This has actually been going on for over a decade, for some reason, Dix said. For the (2002) Jazz Mandolin Project tour (which Fishman was a part of), I was doing sound, and Friday was the tour manager. We would take those little handbills and write poems to each other where we pick on any Wookie-looking tramp in the room, and they were basically odes to them. We were like two giggly little schoolgirls in the back of a van, drinking while someone else is driving and passing notes back and forth to each other when we werent passing the Game Boy back to each other, or gay porn; either one. Since those days, Touchpants has recorded a few albums worth of songs and poems highlights include Penis Slap among several other unprintable names and, at the urging of Fishman, has been starting to play more live shows. It developed slowly as we basically played once a year, every year, Friday said before Fishman quipped, Now that weve got about 15 gigs under our belt. Were really dialing it in now that were at gig 15. The fans are really coming together, Dix added. Although the comedy is a major part of its live shows, Touchpants is a group of musicians who are fully capable of sounding like a rock band should, even with the offensive humor that comes as an added treat. Once it gets going, theres actually a good rock band behind it, Dix said. In all seriousness, I like the fearlessness of the band, Fishman continued. We get around our instruments well enough and we listen to each other well enough Youre forced to connect with people. Sometimes it can be slowgoing, but then you hit a vein and then when its off and running. Its fun as hell. While the music keeps the energy of the night going, Touchpants is a band that plays its own material and is not trying to associate itself with Fishmans other band, Phish, which is part of the attraction for the famed drummer. In all honesty, what would be the point of me being in another band that was anything like

Phish? Fishman asked. There would be no point to that Try to have readers imagine it being the farthest thing from Phish, and if they think they want to go see it, they should. If one could get a feel for the Touchpants experience, its no surprise that the bands shows live up to whatever (moral?) standards it has been practicing for the last decade. They drink, they offend, they insult, but most importantly, they have a fun time doing the tongue-in-cheek humor that keeps both them and the crowd in high spirits. We do write a set list, but it tends to deviate wildly from night to night based on the sheer amount of alcohol we intake and the crowd, Dix said. Theres a good amount of crowd interaction where essentially well just kind of pick on any random female in the crowd. Regardless of what she looks like, well call her fat. Having an open-mind to humor is a key ingredient for its fans, and if one needs proof, have a look at the stage setup. Put it this way were sitting on toilets on stage, Friday said. Put that in your article; if you want to get close to Jon, think about sitting on a toilet. Its childish st, but its a childish catharsis, Fishman added. We can just get together, have a good time, drink a little and are just idiots on f-g stage, and every once in a while, the music is actually good.

The words of Edgar Allan Poe are timeless, haunting, and undeniable beautiful, so its no wonder that The Glass Prism had no problem making a career out of being a band whose songs are based on those very works. The Glass Prism, now made up of core members Rick Richards, Tom Varano, and Lou Cossa with the addition of Fran Festa, Mike Mercuri, and Nancy Granziano for the April 27 album release party in Dickson City, originally hit the scene in the early 1960s. Poe was of interest to the group members, but they never knew it would turn into what it did. We just came up with an idea to do the poem The Raven, and we would play that song live with eight verses every night. It took forever, but people asked us to play it again, Varano said. Interest was peaked and the band found themselves locked into a tworecord deal with RCA. They put out Poe Through the Glass Prism and On Joy and Sorrow, the former of which featured The Raven. The single hit the Billboard, Cashbox, and Record World charts in 1969, a part of one of the very first concept albums ever made. The guys recorded the album at the studio of Les Paul, a man known not only for inventing the electric guitar, but for creating many of the concepts used in recording studios today, such as double and quadruple tracking, to start. The experience was one that Varano said would be hard to duplicate in this day and age. The song The Raven was recorded in one take at 5 oclock in the morning; nothing happens like that any more, and thats how it was with the whole album. We didnt have things like pitch control, where you can make the person sound good even when theyre not. You either had it or you didnt. The Glass Prism had it, especially in a time when the music scene was being infiltrated by acts hailing from England. The guys went along great until a series of unfortunate events unfolded quickly, including the unraveling of the personal life of the bands manager Mort Lewis,

his subsequent disappearance from the industry, and the loss of an opportunity to tour with Blood, Sweat and Tears when the tour fell through. Once poised for success, Prism disbanded in 1971 after the recording of the second album, which never netted the same success of the previous one. It was through another series of events, this time incredibly fortunate ones, that The Glass Prism found its way back together to make music again. Fans began to rediscover the groups music through the Internet, and this soon snowballed into interest coming in from all angles, even so far as Asia. The group has been signed to a regional label called Debra Records and they just released a new album, Resurrection, which comes in a double packaging alongside the recording Shenandoah Sessions 73. There have been reunion shows at the Mellow Theater, Scranton Culture Center, and Edgar Allan Poe National Historical Site in Philadelphia. Much of this renewed interest also stems from the airing of the documentary On Joy and Sorrow: The Glass Prism Story, which was shown on WVIA and Metrocast in September and October of 2012. Its been quite the ride for the members of The Glass Prism, one that Varano recounts fondly and with verve. He said he is often quite stunned when thinking about it. Its neat that people are still aware of a group that never became The Beatles or The Rolling Stones, he said of his thought process when he looks back on the groups career. Its been an amazing experience, and were happy to be back doing what we do.

album reviews
Losers a winner
Sometimes the most interesting listening experiences are provided by artists that you cant quite put your finger on. Kyle Morgan is one such artist. Upon first listen, the Harrisburg-raised songwriter lays down not-so-subtle shades of Electric Light Orchestras Jeff Lynne the brand of rootsy, Beatletinged arrangements and production Lynne brought to Fab Four offshoot projects like George Harrisons solo work and The Traveling Wilburys. Morgan then proceeds to weave in and out of a Bob Dylan/The Bandinspired sage Americana evangelist vibe dark, dirt road wisdom. What binds the consistency on Morgans Starcrossed Losers, though, is his unflinching ability to dig within himself to not only reconcile past afflictions, no matter how painful, but provide a tentative peace with his tortured soul. When he tries hard enough, things even manage to come up pretty darn rosy. Best viewed through folk-colored lenses, the record is flavored with mandolin, fiddle, sax, and even banjo. Morgan succeeds in never sounding dated, due to his brilliant infusion of jangly power pop into his brand of Mississippi-strewn mud. Tracks like Sorry can pass as Delta power pop, with a big chorus amid subdued horns and a cotton field stomp a mile wide. And I Wept is a gorgeous McCartneyesque acoustic serenade with hints

2013

of Everly Brothers influence, while How Theyre Rolling, also of passive acoustic persuasion, is much darker almost a classic Southern murder ballad feel with eerily placed vocal phrasing. Dealing Twenties displays Morgans brighter side, the open-chorded garage rock strum belies Morgans repetitious, Any day now, well see the truth. Though there are nine preceding tracks filled with various degrees of heart spillage, one gets the feeling the essence of the albums musical statement can be summed up in 1:24 of the albums final cut, Out of My Reach. Morgan, through succinct solo acoustic guitar and voice, offers but two lines: Ive learned to see, some things are out of my reach / Ive learned to keep, some things out of my reach, a learned sense of introspection, grounded expectation, and musical preservation that rises far above Morgans 20-something years. -Mark Uricheck, Weekender Correspondent

Fall Out Boy Save Rock and Roll Rating W

WWV

There is a weird twist of a fate in the title of Fall Out Boys latest record, Save Rock and Roll, that was released this week, in that its the bands least rock and roll album yet. As the group is well-known for breaking through as a punk act, this latest release makes rock feel more like an idea than anything else. It does bring Fall Out Boy back to the pop music scene after a five-year hiatus that led to various side projects. It starts off with the

Falling out of Rock and Roll

albums second single and the most impressive track of the bunch, The Phoenix. It hits you hard with dramatic severity, almost like an orchestra led by driving violins, and every two beats, big percussive thuds explode. Then, as singer Patrick Stump starts belting the vocals, a fist-pumping kick drum starts to pulse; the album kicks off with a battle cry. The next track, first single My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up), follows well in line. Alone Together is carried at first solely by Stumps defined voice and light pianos in the back, feeling ready for a down-tempo stadium sing-along before breaking into the full band and easily echoed backing vocals. The rest of the album rolls with consistency, though it is top-heavy with the three aforementioned tracks. Young Volcanoes may be the unsung hero that carries the album, as it is catchy enough for pop radio, yet still somewhat true to FOBs roots. One thing that almost everyone expects is the unique lyrics FOB brings to the table. Juvenile in nature, lines like, We are the jacko-lanterns in July, setting fire to the sky, and Cross walks and crossed hearts hope to die, soak up the album. In the end, Fall Out Boy have created very little rock and roll with this album, let alone saved it. Instead of sticking to their reliable formula, the group decided to go in a different direction, which may not sit well with fans, but neither did taking five years off. In the end, with a new sound, Fall Out Boy may have instead saved themselves from a dud comeback. -Matt Morgis, Weekender Correspondent

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Mosquito Rating W

No No No to Mosquito
With its attention-grabbing cover art and incendiary lead single, Mosquito, seemed well poised to be the Yeah Yeah Yeahs big compromise: a fluid mix of their pop song instincts and their undeniable rock chops that havent been seen since the days of Fever to Tell. The result, however, isnt anything like that. In fact, Mosquito is without question the single worst album the band has ever released.

Mosquitos flaws are numerous, but the root of the bands problem is actually quite simple: amidst the Yeahs excessive exploration of color and texture they neglected to tie any of these discoveries into any cohesive forms. From a production standpoint, Mosquitos tracks are expansive and big-sounding in a way that their previous songs havent been, but rarely does this flex of stadium muscle seem to be backed by any sort of intention or motive; at its worse, Mosquito feels like a slapdash collection of songs for songs sake. Although the title track is flooded with tribal drumming (bringing back immediate echoes of And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Deads Wasted State of Mind) and a nice little chorus riff, Karen Os lyrics are remarkably indistinctive: Mosquito sing / Mosquito cry / Mosquito live / Mosquito die / Mosquito drink / Most anything / Whatevers left / Mosquito scream, all before launching into a chorus that consists of nothing but the line, Ill suck your blood! Its a weak metaphor, no matter how amusingly O manages to imitate a mosquito sound post-chorus. They very well couldve taken the pop music mastercourse that was Blitz! and tossed it in the mud and wrestled around with it a bit, but the Yeahs curiosity ultimately got the better of them, and what were left with is an album that bears a lot of attributes with the creature its named after: it doesnt follow a set path, makes a lot of noise in your ears, but its ultimately something youll want to swat away and get rid of because of just how badly it annoys you. -Evan Sawdey, PopMatters

Coles comeback
By Sara Pokorny
Weekender Staff Writer
Where have all the cowboys gone? Its a simple inquiry that immediately conjures up a catchy tune and the powerful vocals that belong to Paula Cole. Couple that 1997 hit with another chart-topping tune, Dawsons Creek theme song I Dont Want to Wait, and youve got a singer/songwriter who rocketed up the charts in no time. However, Coles flame quickly went out in 1999 when she stepped out of the industry to care for some personal matters, leaving her on the sidelines until her comeback studio album, aptly named Courage, in 2007. The Grammy winner and seven-time Grammy nominee has put out several bodies of work since then and just recently forayed into independent territory with her self-produced album Raven, due out April 23. We caught up with Cole as she was days away from embarking on a tour in support of the album, a string of shows that will land her at Mauch Chunk Opera House (14 W. Broadway, Jim Thorpe) on April 20. THE WEEKENDER: Raven is the first time youve released something independently. Why did you choose that route and how has that experience been? PAULA COLE: I wanted to do it my way, even if that was a smaller way. It would be freeing to be a primary decision maker, and it involved all aspects, whether it deals with the cover or even if photo shoots werent so fashion-y. I can really let the album content flow; I dont have any record company influence in the control room. Im spinning more plates, of course, and it involves more entrepreneurial skill, but I should be able to handle that now. Im so happy about it, and it makes sense with the paradigm shift of record companies folding, merging, collapsing. Theres a real opportunity for artists to go their own way. Some have been doing it for a while, and I wish I had done it sooner. W: How does the sound of Raven differ from your previous works? PC: Im so inside my own head that its hard for me to say exactly, but the feedback Im getting from fans is that it reminds them a lot of This Fire (released in 1996), and I understand why because theres storytelling and that rock element, and its also self-produced and not overproduced; its very organic. W: Where do you draw inspiration from when writing songs? PC: I keep it very diverse so that I keep songwriting fresh. I liken it to a conversation between the left brain and the right brain hemispheres. Yes, there are flashes of inspiration that are largely right-brained and fabulous, but not all writing is like that. Sometimes you do need the organizational left brain to come in and help you, start you down a different path of your writing inspiration. Sometimes its journaling, life experience, a homework assignment, or even

just fingers on the keyboard or guitar. Its random, and I like that its diverse. W: You took quite a bit of time off. Did you know you were going to come back to the music scene eventually, or was that a decision you would go back and forth on? PC: I was always bouncing it back and forth in my head. There were immediate needs that needed to be addressed, like my little daughter who was sick, an unhappy marriage that I needed to get out of, and a couple of moves; all these things were put ahead of my career. I missed music terribly. I would make it in the home; I tried making an album a couple times, but that didnt fly. I think I was scared about going back in public. I had so many mixed feelings about my first career. It happened too quickly and it became a thing I didnt like. As a thoughtful introvert, I was uncomfortable with the quick escalation and the falling down. All of it was just mean and harsh and I always saw myself as more of a dark horse with a long ramp-up and a slow build and a nice long career. I feel like the whole thing was traumatic and ill-fitted to who I really was. W: So what finally gave you that push to give it another shot? PC: I realized my life isnt complete without music. I was making music at home, but that wasnt enough without it reaching people. If youre sitting on a gift, a talent, a proclivity that gives you joy and gives other people joy, that gives your life meaning, and then it becomes this evil, torturous puppet head inside of you, causing you great depression, well, you just need to use it. You need to use your gifts in this world or else you go crazy. My life wasnt full and music makes me strong: forming it, writing it, being in front of people, meeting people all of this makes me a more empowered me, and then other aspects of my life go well. If thats alive and well and in harmony with my personal life, its wonderful.

APRIL

Starwood, MSI have weird, wild evening


By Rich Howells
Weekender Editor
R EV I EW
Lets just get this opening band over with! an impatient Mindless Self Indulgence fan complained from the front row of the Electric Factory stage in Philadelphia on Sunday, April 14. Once the otherworldly members of Starwood took the stage at 8 p.m., however, this cry was quickly silenced and replaced with awe. Opening acts, even locals, are often met with indifference or derision, but the Philly-based quintet won the early crowd over with their theatrical cyber art rock that stole the show even before the rest of it began, in another fans words. The band has roots in Scranton, but one wouldnt know it when its members are in character, dressed in black and silver with shiny, reflective mirrors adorning their futuristic gear. All hidden behind masks or visors, only frontman Gabriel Starwood removed his sparkling helmet to reveal a human face, though he claimed to be a cyborg from the planet Vitrus merely mimicking human emotion through an avatar before breaking into The Dig. The tongue-in-cheek story of saving their planet told through their music in songs like Plea from a Tailgunner and God of the Drones connected to the largely young goth and raver crowd, many dressed in distinctive outfits of their own. Having only played small bars and clubs up until now, Starwood didnt waste their first big break in front of self-aware MSI fans by keeping things light yet dramatic through Gabriels peculiar mix of robotic banter with the audience and convulsive dancing. Culminating their six-song set with Dr. Robespierres Cure for the Lonely, which is to lob off the

heads of those with no one to love, and Love Your Lawnmower, which asks you to care for the machines that may one day be used to build your own cybernetic parts, the laughs gave way to appreciation for the melody and musicianship behind these tunes that had many buzzing even after the show. This stood in stark contrast to the subsequent performance by Death Spells, an electronic hardcore duo formed by ex-My Chemical Romance guitarist/backup vocalist Frank Iero along with punk and hardcore multi-instrumentalist James Dewees. With only a guitar and laptop in front of a screen displaying random projected images, the silhouetted pairs odd mix of floor-rumbling beats and piercing screeches confused and bored onlookers coming off the high of a much more engaging and harmonious set. It took a matter of seconds for Mindless Self Indulgence to correct this, exploding on stage with Witness and Shut Me Up. Singer Jimmy Urine, dressed in black and white from head to toe, seemed to absorb every bit of energy in the room and push it right back onto the crowd, though his colorful bandmates guitarist Steve, Righ?, bassist Lyn-Z, and drummer Kitty helped keep up the dizzying pace. As flamboyant and irreverent as his lyrics, Urine cracked unpredictable jokes (Im not the devil Im just a very smart goat! he said as he donned a pair of red horns) as he bounced around through 20 songs with little time to breathe, though the first few verses of an a capella version of Method Mans Bring the Pain from 1999 debut Tight was the perfect way to do so. Despite the official release date of the next Kickstarter-funded album, How I Learned to Stop Giving a St and Love Mindless Self Indulgence, being May 14, many already knew the lyrics to the six new songs, which blended well with an even mix of selections from the last three records. Turning the floor into equal parts dance party and mosh pit, the synthpunkers ended with Ft and Bitches before an encore of Straight to Video. Urine stayed long after to sign autographs and take pictures right along with Starwood, showing that youre never too big to hang with the little (but hopefully soon to be big) guy.

movie review Forced inspiration


Weekender Correspondent Rating: W W
In 42, Jackie Robinson gets the performance he deserves from Chadwick Boseman, who exudes quiet strength and dignity, the characteristics that defined Robinsons success (and survival) as the first African American in major league baseball. What a shame that 42 uses Robinsons historical impact as a springboard for queasy melodrama and hollow apologies about the past. The year is 1945. World War II has ended and Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) is eager to use African American baseball talent. His reasons are not quite humanitarian. Theres a black group of fans the team is neglecting and every dollar is green. Once Rickeys associates pick up their jaws from the floor, they help him pore over candidates

By Pete Croatto

for this grand experiment. Robinson has the talent and the real world background. As a multisports star at UCLA, he played with and against whites. Integrity isnt an issue. Robinson refused to sit in the back of an Army bus in Texas, an act that led to his court martial. Hes a troublemaker, a wag says. If he were white, Rickey responds, wed call that spirit. Whatever you call it allows Robinson to endure every shade of racism in the minors before making the majors in 1947. Tolerance still lags far behind. Robinson must win over opponents, his teammates, fans, and practically any other white person. And he has to play well while ignoring the remarks of skeptics and bigots who see him as an affront to the national pastime. Director/writer Brian Helgeland (A Knights Tale) rightly paints Robinson as a hero, but its the only color in his repertoire. When he captures the human side of Robinson, its purely accidental. The movie is an assembly of veneered

anecdotes Remember the time Jackie stood up to the gas station attendant? Or how about when he scored without touching the ball? passed off as an intimate portrait. When Helgeland isnt bothering to peer into Robinsons soul, were repeatedly patronized. He presents the trailblazers travails with an I-cant-believe-I have-to-educatethese-rubes smugness. Robinson cannot catch a bus without it being accompanied by an orchestras dramatic swelling. Ben Chapman (Alan Tudyk), the Philadelphia Phillies manager, barrages Robinson during his at-bats with language that would have embarrassed a Klansman. In case you dont comprehend Chapmans epic loathsomeness, dont worry: youll get two more scenes confirming that fact. Legendary sportswriter Wendell Smith (Andre Holland), Robinsons chronicler, represents the common man, a gimmick that punctures Robinsons epic resiliency. That trait is something anyone can aspire to summon. Since African Americans dominate todays professional sports, we dont need a saccharine aside of how Robinson touched an athletes life. We dont need golden rays of light permeating Rickeys office, making it look like Socrates workspace. We dont need a son mimicking his fathers racist language,

WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2013

Though Robinson is portrayed perfectly, the rest of the movie fails to inspire the way the real man and his story did.

the dialogue of the PSA. We dont need so many inspirational speeches that they require an index further turning Robinson into an animate commemorative stamp. Our countrys homogenous Mayflower heritage fades with each passing day. That we have an African American president no longer feels historic. Is 42, obvious and condescending, the best cinematic tribute for Jackie Robinson we can fashion in 2013? Some viewers will be insulted. More will be bored. The worst part, I fear, is that few will leave inspired. -To read more of Petes cinematic musings, visit WhatPetesWatching. blogpsot.com or follow him on Twitter, @PeteCroatto.

TOTHESE

The title of the work is textbook David Sedaris. A bit uncanny and preposterous, his upcoming collection of narrative essays, Lets Explore Diabetes with Owls, evokes a scathing seriousness that readers cannot help but love. As a writer and humorist, Sedaris is not reticent to discuss particular issues. In fact, he gives his opinion on nearly everything, ranging from socialized medicine to the slightly less trivial topic of crocheted owls. In linear fashion, the title of the collection then becomes a culmination of those explorations. Each of the essays incorporates Sedariss personal experience with the subject or how the particular matter affected those around him. As a result, the work becomes overtly private in many ways. In particular, readers are given a deeply detailed glimpse into Sedariss first colonoscopy as well as his memories of family dinners: From the tabletop up, he was business casual the ironed shirt, the loosened tie but from there on down it was just briefs and bare legs. Most of the work is strictly Sedaris a bit absurd at first, much of the content progresses into painstakingly accurate observations. It is, however, important to note that the etcetera portion of Sedariss work includes six monologues all told in divergent voices. Here, Sedaris gives readers a commingled collection of memoir and fiction. Throughout our journey to the far realm of the disturbingly weird, we enter an area of cynicism. Of course, what separates Sedaris from being jaded is wit and charm. There are many standout essays throughout the book, including If I Ruled the World, Author, Author, I Break for Traditional Marriage, Understanding, Understanding

Sedaris is a hoot

lets Explore Diabetes with owls David Sedaris Rating: W W W W V

Owls, and Now Hiring Friendly People. In the very sarcastic If I Ruled the World, Sedaris discusses the concession of all power to Jesus Christ. And all the other evil people [] who want to take away our freedom or raise my taxes, they shall know our fury, Jesuss and mine, and burn forever. While the essay is brief, it manages to reflect on many controversial topics that currently divide our society. Like so many of his dazzling essays, Sedaris discusses the illogicality of particular radical viewpoints by stripping down and investigating some of the most fascinating and challenging topics that are Americas current events. Often unexpected and unapologetic, the material can be coarse and mature. Overall, while the collection is satirical, there are poignant aspects that transport readers back to memories of both innocence and humor. Sedaris then concludes the work just as he begins with a punch.

WEDNESDAY,

The dual nature of superheroines it tears my love of the genre apart. As a young kid, I always got along better with women, mainly because all the boys I knew at the time were competitive jocks, and to this day, most of my best friends are female. I grew up on the animated X-Men series in the 90s, which introduced me to the comic books, and I always found it fascinating that the XWomen were stronger and had better powers than the X-Men. I wanted to believe that this was some sort of feminist statement, and maybe, in a way, it was. But this was the 90s, and if there was anything bigger than their superpowers, it waswellyou know All the women were drawn with tiny wastes and disproportionate chests it was the artistic style at the time. (To be fair, the men were also drawn with muscles upon muscles that no geek like me could possibly live up to.) X-Men had plenty of great, shining moments for its women, but at the end of the day, the guys didnt have to suffer from so much oversexualization it was a battle the ladies would have to fight alone. This was one of many topics covered in Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American

PAGE 28

Superheroines, the latest episode of PBS Independent Lens that served as a mini-documentary about popular representations of women in media and how they mirror societys issues with gender. It wasnt as term paper-ish as it sounds, cleverly using the history of the most popular and recognizable superheroine of all time to structure the film. Introduced in All Star Comics No. 8 in 1941, Wonder Woman, like the X-Women, has embodied both sides of womens representation in entertainment and media, which may be due, in part, to creator William Moulton Marston, a psychologist and inventor of the blood pressure component of the modern polygraph. On one hand, he was a staunch feminist who fought for womens rights, though on the other, he was a bit of a fetishist who often used bondage throughout his Wonder Woman stories. This is not to say that she couldnt still be a feminist, but while she was strong and brave, she was also a sexualized princess who wore a skirt from her very first appearance. She broke some of the rules, but not all of them. As World War II ended and other writers took over, Wonder Women became less about womens lib and more about romance, fashion, and other stereotypical themes that watered her down. It took feminists like Gloria Steinem, who recognized Diana as an icon worth saving, to force DC Comics to rethink these changes, though it was the 70s live-action TV series starring Lynda Carter that truly rescued this character and solidified her place in American culture. She hasnt had a starring role in any mainstream media since, yet many non-comic collectors still know who she is PBSs Independent Lens series reand what she means to cently celebrated a comic book icon, women. a heroine that many women of all ages Wonder Women! look up to. weaves the tale of

Wonderful women

rich Howells | Weekender Editor

Geek Culture & more

Infinite Improbability
this fictional character in with the stories of real-life women (and one openly gay man) who were touched or inspired by her adventures, and that is where the central theme of the documentary comes in. Whether its a fourth grader standing up to bullies or a Brazilian immigrant searching for better opportunities in another country, women can look past the minor faults in Wonder Womans inconsistent writing and see the greater good beneath a tough, independent woman who stands up for what she believes in and doesnt need a man to make positive changes in the world around her. Seeing these women accept and embrace that made me realize that I should do the very same thing I love the X-Women because of those characters shining moments, so why be embarrassed by those revealing costumes or sometimes silly subplots? No one, fictional or otherwise, is going to be a perfect role model, so as long as Im finding something constructive amongst those pages, its still a worthwhile read. What the episode didnt cover was that Wonder Woman most recently made headlines for making out with Superman in the comics and starring in a 2011 TV pilot that was so awful that NBC wouldnt even air it neither inspire all that aforementioned bravery and hope stuff. While blockbusters starring male superheroes continue to rake in billions, a big budget Wonder Woman film continues to stall as her comic counterpart sends mixed messages. Maybe a few DC executives need to sit down and watch some PBS women (and men) want more from our superheroines than a pretty face and a fit body. We want a woman who makes us wonder just how far we can go if we believe in ourselves. Thats the genre Ive come to appreciate. -Rich Howells is a lifelong Marvel Comics collector, wannabe Jedi master, and cult film fan. E-mail him at rhowells@ theweekender.com.

reaking Benjamin and Lifer are two household names in hard rock, particularly in Northeastern Pennsylvania. But with the newly formed Stardog Champion, some of their former members are looking to tour and take over the world. Aaron Fink started playing guitar when he was 13. His

Heavy-hitting champs
father was an avid music fan with a huge great record collection, so he was raised on classic rock and doo-wop, but the moment he changed from casual listener to dedicated player was when his older brother gave him his rst listen of Metallicas For Whom the Bell Tolls. Nick Coyles father was a musician, and when his dads band practiced in the basement, six-year-old Coyle would play along on his keyboard. As a teenager, he wanted to learn how to play guitar like Slash from Guns N Roses, but at 13, he landed a singing gig with Conspiracy, who asked him to enter a recording studio ve days later to cut a ve-song EP. In 1999, the two became founding members of Strangers With Candy, a Wilkes-Barre nu metal group who became better known as Lifer. They released a self-titled debut and even won MTVs Ultimate Cover Band contest with their take on A-has Take on Me, but Fink and bassist Mark Klepaski found greater national success with alternative rock act Breaking Benjamin, signing with Hollywood Records in 2002 and selling over ve million albums while Coyle formed The Drama Club. Both Fink and Klepaski were dismissed from the band in 2011 by frontman Benjamin Burnley following a dispute and subsequent lawsuit over a remix on their greatest hits record, though Fink still looks back on his 12 years in the band fondly. Obviously, it didnt end

well, so I have some mixed feelings, and its kind of not quite yet in my rearview or anything like that. Over a 10 year period, most of the memories are fond memories. Obviously, there were a couple hiccups along the way. It didnt end on particularly good terms, but I dont take our success for granted. I dont take the fans for granted. I was always excited about what was going on; I didnt just wake up and was like, Oh, I deserve to be here, so I kind of kept that

perspective the whole way, Fink told The Weekender in an exclusive interview. I tried not to turn into a rock star, if you will. I feel like Im still pretty grounded. I didnt pack up and move to LA and buy a Lamborghini. Whatever happened with us over time, the bottom line is that we did kick some ass and we had a lot of great fans and we played a lot of great shows. Overall, I try to keep that in perspective more than to dwell on the negatives and the what ifs. Lifer reunited for a local benet in 2010, but when James McCabe, co-founder of Fantasy Camp Productions, brought Fink and Coyle back together to play in a ctitious metal band called Gentle Rape in the comedic web series The Coxton Campaign the following year, they took the amusing opportunity and turned it into a serious year-long writing and jamming session to see if the old chemistry was still there. As it turns out, it was, so Fink, Coyle, and Klepaski recruited drummer Josh Karis of Leroy Justice to form Stardog Champion, and after two years of preparation and ne-tuning, theyre ready for their public debut. ifer was formed at a much different time in the music industry in some ways, a much more positive time. With no Myspace, Facebook, or social networking, the group received fan mail through a PO box, mostly from girls, that Fink recently thumbed through. Its so easy for people now to just jump on YouTube and hate on people. Its the anonymous basement dweller kid, Coyle pointed out, comparing the difference in decades. Look at his hair. That guy is an assh--e. What does that have to do with the song? I read some of these comments and theyre not even relevant to anything that you see. With no children or mortgage payments to worry about, it

was also a much more carefree period for the hungry musicians. Therere so many bands to start off with these days, and because of social networking and things like that, everyone

Lyrically, the inspiration of it is the everyday stuff that were kind of consumed by, whether it be Facebook or television, and the things that were kind of asked to buy into, singer Nick Coyle said of Stardog Champions debut song.
is trying to sell their band. Theyre so keen on having electronic packages and to sell themselves everyone is their own salesman these days, which is awesome, but at the same time, its a lot different from that school that we broke into at the time, Coyle continued. Id say its easier to get (music) out there on your own, but as far as to make a living at it, no. That has made it harder. Therere too many bands. Back in the day, only a select few bands would ever make it to a recording studio. Now anyone can go to the studio... Everyone has Logic or Pro Tools on their home computers and they could autotune themselves. I think its a positive thing, though, in general. If everyone is trying to make art, I think its cool, Fink interjected. It levels the playing eld, Coyle agreed. Its not so corporate driven where theyre totally in control anymore. Its good and bad. So how does Stardog plan to stand out amongst a sea of homegrown bands? By crafting honest rock n roll with roots in 70s rock and 90s grunge, its very name a nod to Mother Love Bone, whose members would later form Pearl Jam. I cant imagine ever in my life just being dedicated to one particular style. It all comes back to rock n roll for me, and thats what Im into in general, but I like different avors within that genre, Fink commented. To me, the 70s and the 90s are the kind of music I connect with most, and I feel like it holds up really well over time. It

doesnt sound corny or dated to me. It still sounds fresh. That changed my life musically, my perspective on it. Before that, it was hair bands and spandex and things like that, Coyle said of his formative years in the 90s. All of a sudden, everyone was into the music and everyone was about emotion and different things, and there was just something about that that connected with me personally.

Simpler times

oyle and Fink have kept things personal in their current writing, as they did in Lifer, but they note that Stardog Champion will not be a direct continuation of their old material. Instead, it is a brand new chapter in their careers, turning the negative experiences of the past few years into songs with positive, relatable messages. It felt like Lifer was something that we did when we were a bit younger and a little more immature. Were all older now and we all have kids and I think theres a different perspective, especially lyrically. We want to write about different stuff, Fink explained. Those lyrics are very teen angst. They were written, some of them, in my notebooks that Ive had since I was a teenager that Ive pulled pieces from. On that rst record, we were in our early 20s. You have a different perspective on life then; now I dont feel like that guy

Not that I dont appreciate where we gig for an up-and-coming act, came from or those songs. though Fink will feel right at Its three of the same guys home. from Lifer, so not that were For whatever reason, not proud of that, but lets not (Breaking Benjamin) connected make it sound like that band. with that town, and that was But it wasnt even hard to do always our biggest market. that because Wilkes-Barre were different Go to theweekender.com was always home people now.

Thunder in a can
Beer: Moo Thunder Stout Brewer: Butternuts Beer & Ale Style: Milk/Sweet Stout ABV: 4.90% Description: Butternuts Moo Thunder Stout pours a thick black, almost oil-like color, with a tall cocoa-colored head that really sticks around. Strong aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, lactose, and a slight hint of herbal hops coming through truly wonderful! The taste is just as wonderful. The sip starts off with the roasted malts hitting the taste buds, giving you a slight bitterness, and then it transitions into a wonderful sweetness from the lactose and finishes with a delicious milk chocolate flavor. The body is very creamy and surprisingly thin, which resembles more of a porter than a stout, but this does not take away from this beer. The other feature that caught me a bit off guard was the amount of carbonation; it is a bit high for a stout, but again, it does not detract from this wonderful beer and actually helps this beer to finish dry, as a great stout should! This is a truly wonderful stout that is made all the better by its availability in cans, which makes it a great beer to take for a nice outing. Food pairing: Upon my first sniff of this beer, all I could think was, This would be perfect with desserts! You can just dream of the many desserts to pair with this one, from decadent chocolate cakes to creamfilled puffs to simple chocolate chip cookies. The best pairings will be those that have a creamy texture to them, something along the lines of a nice crme brle. This is also a wonderful beer to make into a nice beer float for a real treat after dinner. Whatever you decide, just enjoy your treat slowly and let the flavors and textures play off of one another for the full impact of this amazing beer.

WEEKENDER,

Is it worth trying? How could I say no? This is such a fantastically well-balanced sweet stout that anyone can quickly fall in love. Funny name aside, Butternuts has been making some fantastic beers for a few years now and has been quietly gaining quite the reputation. Another great thing about this beer is that it is easy to get fresh. How, you ask? Well, take a road trip to the brewery! The brewery is located in Garrattsville, N.Y., which is right outside of Cooperstown. So while you are visiting Butternuts and getting some fresh Moo Thunder Stout, you can also swing by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Brewery Ommegang! So stop reading and go get a can or two. Even if you have been turned off by stouts in the past, Moo Thunder may just be the stout to bring you back to the dark side! Rating: W W W W Where can I get it? Currently available in cans at: Krugels Georgetown Deli & Beer, Wilkes-Barre; Backyard Ale House, Scranton; and Wegmans, Dickson City. Remember, enjoy responsibly! Cheers! -Derek Warren is a beer expert, avid homebrewer, and beer historian. Derek can be reached at NEPABeerGeek@ gmail.com.

ralphie report
EntErtainmEnt rEport
TYSONS UNDISPUTED TRUTH ON KIRBY STAGE Mike Tyson reinvented himself from a feared yet confused and conflicted fighter to a feared, confused, conflicted, but now much more lovable actor. Thank God. The Hangover did a lot for me, in that perspective, said Tyson in a phone interview from his Las Vegas home on The Ralphie Show. It opened the doors for me, as far as people that never experienced me in the 80s or 90s. The Punch-Out! video game star also attributes his newfound success to staying away from drugs and alcohol. Ive been clean for four years. Thats awesome, Tyson told me. Once I overcame that, everything else was easy sailing. The Boxing Hall of Famer is currently touring the country with his show, Undisputed Truth. He stops at the F.M. Kirby Center on Wednesday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m. The show is directed by Spike Lee, with the script written by his wife Kiki. Tyson compares preparing for the show with preparing for a boxing match. Im in shape. Im running every day, working out, he said. You have to be at your best. You have to have good timing. You have to be precise. Critics have essentially called his show just that; the Los Angeles Times raved that the performance is a knockout. Many reviews note that the stage reveals a softer side to The Baddest Man on the Planet. That part of Tysons persona could also be heard on the other end of the phone. I watched The Undertaker beat (C.M.) Punk, and then I fell asleep, responded Tyson when I asked if he watched the WWEs Wrestlemania. Did The Rock win? The Rock lost to John Cena. Perhaps The Hardest Working Man in Showbiz might be a better fit for Tyson these days. -Listen to The Ralphie Show weeknights from 7 p.m.-12 a.m. on 97 BHT.

McIntyre narrowly avoids Boston bombing


Joey McIntyres Boston Marathon story begins as many others do: a native New Englander returning home to run for a specific cause. The New Kids on the Block singers mom suffers from Alzheimers disease, and he raised over $38,000 for research with his efforts. McIntyre finished the marathon in three hours and 57 minutes. At the 4:09 mark of the race, two explosions by the finish line completely changed how America would forever view the Boston Marathon. At 2:58 p.m., McIntyre tweeted that he was sure the explosion left so many hurt, but that he was fine. Dave Brown, NKOTBs tour manager, confirmed to The Ralphie Show later in the afternoon that McIntyre and the group that he was with were OK. Brown said McIntyre ran the marathon on his own and that no one else from New Kids was with him. The artist told WBZ-TV, the CBS affiliate in Boston, that he was shooting to complete the 26.2 mile trek in less than four hours. Just twelve minutes after he crossed the finish line, the explosions left three dead and over 140 injured. The FBI is investigating the attack. Later on Monday evening, McIntyre summed up what many were feeling on his Twitter account. I dont know what to say, he wrote. I feel for everybody involved with the Boston Marathon. My family is ok. I am ok. Gonna take a while to process.

Prose out of the pub


Weekender Staff Writer
Some of the best storytelling happens at the bar, and a group in Scranton has been putting their own twist on that notion for two years now. Prose in Pubs is a bi-monthly event that generally happens at Jacks Draft House in Scranton (though this time around its been moved to The Vintage Theater) and will take place April 21 at 4 p.m. One feature writer and four others come to share their work, an opportunity that event organizer Amye Archer said is important for the area arts community. Its important to introduce people in Northeast Pennsylvania to outside writers, she emphasized. Not many people run in that circle and know outside writers, so its great to be able to let them meet them. Also, its important to introduce these outside people to Northeast Pennsylvania, which has so many incredibly talented people. This months readers will include Sheila Squillante, a Central Pennsylvania author of four chapbooks of poetry and a fulllength collection due out with Tiny Hardcore Press in 2014, and feature Rae Bryant. Bryants short story collection, The Indefinite State of Imaginary Morals, was released from Patasola Press, N.Y., in June 2011. Her stories and essays have earned her nominations for the Pen/Hemingway, Pen

Prose in Pubs, April 21, 4 p.m., Vintage Theater (326 Spruce St., Scranton). Free. Workshop hosted by feature author Rae Bryant at 2 p.m., $20 per person.

WEEKENDER,

Emerging Writers, and Pushcart awards. She received fellowships from the VCCA and The Johns Hopkins University, where she earned a Masters in Writing, teaches creative writing, and is editor-in-chief of the Universityhoused literary and arts journal, The Doctor T. J. Eckleburg Review. The newest feature added to the Prose in Pubs series is the fact that the feature artist now teaches a workshop ahead of the actual readings that day. Bryant will host the Writing the Short Form: Using Binary Oppositions to Form Story workshop at 2 p.m. I love the concept of turning conventional hierarchies on end, i.e. man/woman, conformity/ rebellion, the moments when the story flip-flops our conventional selves, Bryant said in a release for the event. Woman/man. Rebellion/conformity. Individual/team. Derrida gives us this concept through his binary oppositions: conventional importance/unconventional importance. He said, basically, that it is the moment our conventions are turned on end, the moment we accept it as readers, that the story becomes necessary, bigger than its words.

Art and wellness at Spring Craft Fair


Weekender Correspondent
Spring cleaning leaves room for new and exciting finds, and the Spring Craft Fair at New Visions Studio & Gallery on Saturday, April 20, offers plenty of innovative, local wares worth your shelf space. Looking for the perfect statement piece? Jennifer Amazon has an array of up-cycled jewelry, accessories, and stunning chainmail garb. Like Vera Bradley? Try the personal touch of A Daily Obsessions cute clutches, funky key fobs, and uniquely patterned totes. Are you more of the Ron Swanson type, an admirer of quality hardwood? Kerry and John Foose of Funny Farm Collectibles craft natural products, from hardwood furniture to hemp dog leads, and they repurpose both decorative and practical fixtures. Got a sweet tooth? Ask about their 100% pure, Pennsylvanian honey and maple products. Original artwork will be on display both inside the gallery and outdoors. Members of Marywood Universitys chapter of the Kappa Pi International Honorary Art Fraternity will be present, representing the spectrum of fine arts. There will also be various home and beauty products, including Mary Kay cosmetics, fragrant oils, handpoured candles, and herbal remedies. Blessed Be Herbal Creations by Sarah will offer all-purpose cleaners, hand scrubs, bath crystals, massage oils, and other home care products for under $10. Owner/operator Sarah Yzkanin of Scranton named Blessed Be after the old greeting that extends positive intentions to others. That is what I wish to do when I sell someone a product, she shared.

Spring Craft Fair: April 20, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., New Visions Studio & Gallery (201 Vine St., Scranton). Free admission.

Her interest in wellness and holistic health has translated into her products. I have always admired the healing power of herbs and the grounding idea of bringing myself closer to nature. Blessed Be Herbal Creations by Sarah was inspired by what gardening and herbalism have always done for me. The company allows for me to share the sacredness of nature and my love for holistic health with others through distributing my products. A Penn State student, Yzkanin hopes to apply her knowledge of both holistic and conventional methods to a career in marriage and family therapy. She is an avid gardener, a yoga instructor, and a holistic health practitioner. Im passionate about vegetarian/ vegan cooking, caring for nature, and living an Earth-conscious, Buddhist lifestyle. Yzkanin chooses her ingredients based on each plants beneficial properties. When a product should be energizing and refreshing, it may call for some peppermint. Conversely, if I feel that a product should be calming and soothing, it may call for some lavender, she explained. Dont let guilt sway you from scooping up some of her homemade goodies; her mission of wellness carries into the kitchen. Im a big fan of cooking and baking in healthy ways, so Im going to sell one of my favorite, off-thewall treats: chocolate chip chickpea cookies. They sound bizarre, but theyre delicious and a great way to sneak in nutrients. Yzkanin will try out other new, health-conscious dessert recipes, including black bean spinach brownies. If veggified pastries arent your thing, you can scope out some more conventional homemade treats among the crowd of nearly 30 vendors. The Spring Craft Fair is free and open to the public.

Spring trends
Spring has finally sprung! Even though it doesnt feel like it, we can officially break out the spring wardrobe and just add a jacket. And a scarf. And earmuffs. Some items that are trending this season and will carry you into the summer are: Black and white. This classic trend is back. Rock it in stripes, checkers, or polka dots whatever the pattern, its on trend. But remember the golden rule: horizontal stripes widen, vertical lengthens, and diagonal always works. Mix and match. I know all of our mothers hate this one. Mix stripes, dots, and floral patterns. As long as they are in the same color family, go ahead and pair those floral patterned pumps with a striped blazer. Or leave it to the pros and grab a piece with the mixed prints already incorporated. Brights. Like last year, the brights are back. This time, think more primary color mixes rather than neon. Mix your bright piece with a grounded grey or tan if you feel a little out of your comfort zone. Or chose something using brights to color block. Think of a bright blue jacket with a green lining and cuffs. Lace. Lace detail in spring pastels or classic black adds an ultra-feminine vibe to any look. Sweeten up an ensemble with a sheer lace top over a tank, jeans, and strappy sandals. Or sex up that same look by choosing black lace and adding some serious heels. Accessories. Animal-inspired jewelry is hot right now. Crystallized snake bracelets, golden elephants and bejeweled tiger rings are just a few examples of fun

TOMS more than just comfortable shoes


I received my spring catalog from TOMS the other day, and after flipping through it, I realized I wanted everything in it. I was first turned onto TOMS while my fianc lived in New York City. Everywhere I went, I saw people wearing these adorable, stylish, yet completely comfortable shoes. When I Googled them to order a pair, I found that they were much more than just a pair of shoes. TOMS is a business that not only sells shoes and other accessories to make money, they are out to help change lives. With every pair of shoes you buy from TOMS, youre also helping improve a childs health, education and overall well-being. When you buy a pair of TOMD, they donate a pair to a child in need. So why shoes? Shoes alone have the ability to change a life. Imagine not having a single pair of shoes and walking around barefoot every day. Shoes protect childrens feet from cuts that can cause infections and deadly diseases. Its easy to take things for granted, especially when you have a closet full of shoes, a pair for every occasion. Without shoes, children are not able to attend school; most schools make it a requirement that shoes be worn for them to attend. According to toms.com, providing uniforms, including shoes, increases school attendance as much as 62 percent. TOMS has paired up with a group of Giving Partners; when combined, they become a powerful tool in helping create opportunities for those less fortunate. TOMS Giving Partners have stated that a pair of new shoes will immediately instill confidence in a child. Confident children are more likely to stay in school and provide valuable contributions to their communities. In their latest catalog, TOMS visits Cambodia. While the catalog has a variety of shoes for sale, it also tells a story about a community in need. In Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Toms and an organization called the Cambodian Childrens Fund (CCF) work together to better childrens lives. The Cambodian Childrens Fund distributes TOMS shoes along with education, medical treatment, food, nursery care, and vocational training to over 700 children. The children CCF helps come from some of the worst social and financial backgrounds in Cambodia. CCFs Patrick McKinlay wants to help these children and help their communities thrive. Without education, these kids have no chance, McKinlay told TOMS. CCFs real mission is to give kids a real chance to be themselves, develop their talents and abilities. We provide safety, good food, and healthcare. Gemma Harris from CCF says that each child that goes to public school and attends a CCF class gets a pair of TOMS shoes. They give protection from any environment outside of our control, truly every kind of toxic thing, Harris told TOMS. Halfway through the spring catalog, another story stood out, along with a pair of classic TOMS that really caught my eye. Charlize Therons Africa Outreach Project created a pair of vibrant orange classic TOMS with a unique sun design embroidered on them. CTAOPs efforts help keep African youth safe from HIV and AIDS. TOMS often partners with like-minded organizations in order to bring awareness to important issues. Another big campaign TOMS does every year was held yesterday. One Day Without Shoes was created to raise awareness for childrens health and education. While I cant say I walked around barefoot at work yesterday, I will say that I sported my favorite pair of red Toms; once I got home, I went barefoot (that was pretty easy to do). So if youre looking for cute and extremely comfortable shoes that make a difference, then you should really invest in a pair of TOMS. Im even considering wearing a pair of their classic white, crochet TOMS to my wedding! Visit toms.com for your own pair of TOMS!

nature meets bling accessories. Tribal jewelry is perfect for the boho chic look or to make a more conservative outfit edgy. Grab a statement necklace or layer multiple pieces. Floral is a staple for spring, so if the floral prints in clothing are too much for your taste, just dazzle with some floral earrings or a bag. Save the oversized luggagestyle bags for the beach. Whats chic now is a manageable size structured bag. Try something small with a long skinny strap or a medium satchel style in a spring print or color. Oversized sunglasses are still in, but bonus points for round lenses or anything with dcor on the frame: think flowers and fun trim, not logos. Bev Hills housewife Lisa Vanderpump popularized the Oliver Peoples green aviators this past season, so anything with a mirrored or colored lens is all good. For men, its all about the color blocking and mixed eras. Pair a spring fedora-style hat with utility pants, a casual tee, and some 90s-inspired sneakers. Feeling preppy? Trade in the sneaks for slip-on loafers. Keep it cool with some cuffed shorts with a bold print. Skinny jeans are falling out of trend and being taken over by a more relaxed fit for men hallelujah. I dont need to see everything. Aviators and color frames are all good for the guys. -Erin Rovin has been working in the entertainment industry for 10 years and writes for various national gossip publications.

Prom king redemption?


There are a few events that never seem to live up to expectation for me: New Years Eve, birthdays, and fake 1980s proms. The latter was the most recent hot mess plight in my ridiculous life. It all started last year when I decided to spend my 26th birthday at a fake 80s prom party in New York City. I want to be prom king on my birthday! I insisted. Throughout the entire prom I rocked out with my left Rubiks Cube out, engaging the crowd, asking for their vote and support to make my birthday wishes come true. However, I made out like a popular kid upstaged by the nerd that showed up with an MTVs MADE crew, getting beat out by the weird Asian exchange student. Crestfallen, I immediately went to a back-alley psychic for reassurance that my life was headed in a better direction. Instead, she told me that I needed to lose 40 pounds and that my dead grandmother was worried I was becoming an alcoholic (which was not an easy judgment to argue, as I was wearing a pink neon windbreaker two sizes too small that wreaked of bottom shelf vodka). As time passed, I never seemed to shake off the loss of prom king. I always said that one day I would get my redemption by becoming the King of that 80s prom, but I was afraid that if I was seen leaving my house in the most obnoxious 80s clothes again that my family would get me tested for premature Alzheimers disease. However, when I recently became the new general manager of a faltering dive bar in Scranton, I realized I had the ability to throw my own 80s prom where I could rig the votes since I was in charge! Ill win my own fake 80s prom I told myself as I was in CVS spraying Axe body spray that I didnt want to pay for all over my alcohol-drenched neon clothes from last years prom. Later that night at the prom, I instructed my DJ to announce me as the winner, regardless of what the votes said. However, he got too tipsy to adhere to my directions. He was so enamored with the Ted stuffed animal that my bouncer brought as his date to the prom that he announced Ted as the fking winner! When he saw my jaw drop, he quickly announced, And Justin! Its a tie! I couldnt even win prom king at my own fake 80s prom without being upstaged by a stuffed animal. WTF?! I ask for so little in life. Even though I was tied with a stuffed animal, I finally became king of a fake 80s prom, all because I never gave up. Thank God for that, because everyone knows if theres one thing I hate, its quittersand spitters.

Weekender Wire Services

To counter the now-well-publicized culture of rape in India, three engineers in Chennai said in March that they are about to send to the market womens anti-rape lingerie, which will provide both a stun-gunsized blast of electricity against an aggressor and a messaging system sending GPS location to family members and the police about an attack in progress. After the wearer engages a switch, anyone touching the fitted garment will, said one developer, get the shock of his life (even though the garments skin side would be insulated). The only marketing holdup, according to a March report in The Indian Express, is finding a washable fabric.

In March, Stephen Thresh, 47, voluntarily handed in his computer at a police station and confessed to possessing hundreds of (illegal) images of women having sex with animals, including a snake, a tiger and an elephant. Thresh said he had earlier downloaded a message of unknown origin notifying him that law enforcement authorities have been informed, and he thought they would go easier on him if he turned himself in. (Police denied knowledge of the message.) Thresh insisted that possessing such images was not a problem that needed addressing.

MOST GULLIBLE PERVERT

In March, Washington state Rep. Ed Orcutt, apparently upset that bicyclists use the states roads without paying the state gasoline tax for highway maintenance, proposed a 5 percent tax on bicycles that cost more than $500, pointing out that bicyclists impose environmental costs as well. Since carbon dioxide is a major greenhouse gas, he wrote one constituent (and reported in the Huffington Post in March), bike riders increased heart rate and respiration over car drivers creates additional pollution. (Days later, he apologized for the suggestion that bicyclists actually were worse for the environment than cars.) So, For a While There, It Actually Worked: The maker of the all-natural herbal extract Super Power (which promises powerful erections) issued a voluntary recall in January after independent lab tests revealed that the supplement mistakenly contained a small amount of sildenafil, the active ingredient in Viagra. Such unregulated dietary supplements cannot legally contain drugs without Food and Drug Administration approval. (Also, in March, the Federal Trade Commission ordered three retailers, including Neiman Marcus, to re-label some fake-fur garments because they, mistakenly or intentionally, contained real fur.) A Boston Herald reporter said in March that he had been kicked out of a State Ethics Commission training session (which

COMPELLING EXPLANATIONS

might not be unreasonable, as the meeting was for Massachusetts House members only). However, at least two people in attendance refused to give their real names to the reporter as they left. Rep. Tim Toomey insisted he was not a member (though he is) but was just passing through, and Commission chairman Charles Swartwood III (a former federal judge magistrate) refused to give his name at all, telling the reporter, Im not saying because thats a private matter. Aspiring rap music bigshot Bernard Bey, 32, filed a $200,000 lawsuit in February in New York City against his parents, alleging that they owe him because they have been unloving and indifferent to his homelessness and refuse even to take him back in to get a shower. Bey, who raps as Brooklyn Streets, said everything would be forgiven if they would just buy him two Dominos Pizza franchises so that he could eventually earn enough to become a force to be reckoned with in the hip-hop industry. (His mothers solution, as told to a New York Daily News reporter: [G]o get a job. Hes never had job a day in his life.) Police in Knoxville, Tenn., confiscated five venomous snakes during a February traffic stop, and Pastor Jamie Coots of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name (of Middlesboro, Ky.) is demanding them back. Coots said he possesses them openly during his services in Kentucky, but Knoxville police said they are illegal to own in Tennessee. Said Coots, If I dont have them, then Im not obeying the word of God. In Bristol, England, Anthony Gerrard, 59, had been arrested for possessing child pornography, but after an inventory, police found only 11 images of his massive 890GB porn stash were of children

(which Gerrard said he unknowingly downloaded in his quest for legal, adult pornography), and he went to court in January to demand his collection back (minus the child porn). So far, police have said that it is impractical to cull the child porn images. U.S. companies large and small legally deduct the expenses of doing business from their gross profits before paying income tax, but purveyors of marijuana (in states where possession is legal and where prescription marijuana is dispensed) cannot deduct those expenses and thus wind up paying a much higher federal income tax than other businesses. As NPR reported in April, Section 280E of the tax code (enacted in 1982 to trap illegal drug traffickers into tax violations) has not been changed to reflect state legalizations. The effect, experts told NPR, is that legal dispensaries in essence wind up paying tax on their gross receipts while all other legal businesses are taxed only on their net receipts. (The federal government, of course, continues to regard marijuana as illegal.) Ferris Bueller caused lots of mischief on his cinematic Day Off in the 1986 movie starring Matthew Broderick, but he never mooned a wedding party from an adjacent hotel window by pressing his nude buttocks, and then his genitals, against the glass in full view of astonished guests. In March, though, a young Matthew Brodericklookalike (http://huff.to/14XQEJ6), Samuel Dengel, 20, was arrested in Charleston, S.C., and charged with the crime. (Another Bueller-like touch was Dengels tattoo reading, in Latin, By the Power of Truth, I, while living, have Conquered the Universe.)

Tales of DaTing DisasTers

Final destination
I was raised to be a tomboy. Dad always referred to me as the son he never had (much to my brothers dismay). I was into sports, fixing things, climbing trees, and Ninja Turtles. This has echoed into my adult life. As much as I am a lady, you will find me on game day sporting my Red Sox jersey, chugging beer, and yelling at the television. In my mind, this makes me quite the catch. What guy wouldnt want a girl he could watch the game or go fishing with? Ive learned the hard way that this is not what makes you the perfect catch; it makes you the perfect friend. It was Saturday night in dive bar heaven; I met Max through mutual friends. We had always had fun in a group setting and decided to try a date. I was really excited because we got along so well and he was a really fun guy. I knew it was going to be a blast. We decided to go to Pikes Creek Raceway Park to ride go-karts and play at the arcade. Instead of my standard two hours of pre-date primping, I threw on a t-shirt, flip flops, and shorts and went on my merry way. Max and I arrived at the go-kart track and my overly competitive nature had me gunning it like the roadrunner as soon as the sign said, Go (Meep meep!). I whipped my car around the track like a pro. All that Mario Kart training finally paid off! As luck would have it, I ran out of gas as the finish line was in sight. He sped past me laughing and pointing all the way as he claimed his victory. I pouted a few minutes and justified my loss. We then went into the arcade, where I was determined to win. I dominated him three games to zero in air hockey. In the midst of my obnoxious victory dance, I realized it was probably the most innocent and fun time Ive had with a guy in years. The next day, I was smiling and laughing as I told my girlfriends how much fun I had that night. It felt amazing to just let loose and be myself without all the bells and whistles of the dating game. It came so easy. I realized as I spoke that I had so much fun because the bells and whistles were unnecessary. We were Batman and Robin, not Barbie and Ken. He had confirmed this feeling by texting me and saying he had fun hanging out, but the romantic feeling was just not there. This relationship had arrived at its final destination, the friend zone. Once the friend zone is entered, escaping it is nearly impossible. It is the black hole of butterflies in your stomach and goodnight kisses. Max and I still hang out now and talk almost daily. I am glad to have made such an amazing friend, but sometimes the girl next door is just destined to be one of the guys.

Town Hall at the mall


By Noelle Vetrosky
Weekender Correspondent
As the mayor of Town Hall Tattoo, Chris Longo brings a lifetime of industry experience and a passion for body art, which come together to create a tattooing experience that is truly unique. Town Hall Tattoo opened in November 2012 with the ambition of bringing a new standard to the tattoo industry in our area. With a talented staff of artists from around the country and the vast knowledge of shop owners Chris and Dee Longo, tattoo lovers can rejoice in finding this shop, which puts quality and the customer first. Chris and his wife Dee were given the opportunity of a lifetime when they were approached by fellow artists Kim and Dave Kruzeman (who operate a shop inside a mall in Maryland) to open Town Hall Tattoo in the Wyoming Valley Mall. They moved here from Central New Jersey to start the business and havent looked back. It was time to open our own shop, said Dee Longo. It was always a progressive dream of his (Chris) to open a tattoo shop when he retired. Even though the Longos were able to buy the shop out, making them sole owners, it was a partnership in the beginning and they are ever grateful for the prospect presented to them. We want to thank them (Kim and Dave Kruzeman) for the opportunity, we owe them a lot, said Chris Longo. They gave us our start. Chris got his first tattoo at age 22 and now has a multi-layered canvas on his body, displaying the work of dozens of top artists. Hes been attending and emceeing conventions for years, giving tattoos himself since 1993. He lives and breathes body art, and this passion is easy to spot. The goal of our shop is to give a good, clean, solid tattoo that will

stand the test of time and look good forever, Chris explained. Chris has been doing this a long time, so he knows what will last and look good. The customer and their tattoo are very important to us, Dee added. We want to make customers happy by treating them fairly and with respect. One thing that surprised the couple when opening the shop in Pennsylvania was the lack of regulations in the tattoo business. Even though the rules are lacking, Town Hall Tattoo enforces a strict set of regulations, which includes a safe, user-friendly environment, sterile equipment, and top artists. I want artists to stick together and help each other out to grow the industry in the right direction with stricter regulations that protect consumers, Chris said. Wed like to see more shops work together, not attack each other Its why I have business cards from other shops on our counter. If we stick together, we can provide a tattoo experience that people deserve. The Longos believe that eventually every mall will have a tattoo parlor, but they want to see them owned by educated, reputable artists who care about and keep up with the industry. At Town Hall Tattoo, we want to provide a personal experience because getting a tattoo is lifechanging, and people will always remember it, said Dee. There is a science to the right way to give a tattoo; its not just about slapping on a decal. I believe education is the key to everything, and the educated consumer is the best customer, Chris noted. Thats why I try to educate people about the industry above all else. I help potential customers choose the right tattoo; I sit down with them, discuss options, and allow them to meet with the artists so they can choose one that matches their tastes. Its a very personalized experience.

By Caeriel Crestin

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) In Greek myth Jason vanquished a dragon whose teeth, sown in earth, sprouted into thousands of armed warriors. He was ready to fight them all and surely be defeated, despite his prodigious swordsmanship, until his wily girlfriend, Medea, suggested something more realistic: Turn the unassailable might of that army against itself. Jason threw a rock amid the slow-witted troops, prompting them to destroy each other. Adopt a similar strategy. Youre preparing to take on foes (both tangible and abstract) thatd crush a frailer soul than yours. You might be able to slog through your adversaries, lopping heads and reputations, but youd never survive unscathed. Instead, sow foment amongst your antagonists and save your strength for something you excel at: the triumphant race to the finish line. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Therell be no better time this year to have your mouth wired shut. If you dont somehow get it sealed, youll probably end up putting your foot in it before long, probably so forcefully that youll ultimately need to go under the knife anyway. Other possible solutions: Spend the week scuba diving, communicating via signed gestures. Take a vow of silence and correspond via hand-written notes. Go to a rock show and dont stop screaming until your voice promises to vanish for an entire week. Whatever you do, shut your trap, baby. Its for your own good. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Unfortunately, Cancers have developed a reputation for meddling. Theyve been known, on many an occasion, to stick their noses into affairs that dont concern them. This isnt entirely unwarranted: one of your most publicized talents is the ability to solve others problems, even when yours leave you floundering. The problem lies, I believe, in determining which quandaries merit intervention and which should be left well enough alone, a knack many Cancers have yet to develop. Luckily, Im here to help: This weeks probs could benefit from a motivating or pruning pinch from a discriminating Crab. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You respect strength. A forcefully expressed opinion wins points from you, whether or not you agree with its message. Unfortunately, truly thoughtful insights can rarely be boiled down to slogans and catchphrases, because, instead of basing themselves on knee-jerk emotional reaction, faith, or purposeful ignorance, they take into account all the different

I always attempt to deliver a positive spin on things; its you that make it hard on yourselves. Believe me, Id gladly join the legions whod like to make your burden lighter, if only youd let them. The truth is, if I wrote anything remotely along the lines of, Your week will be filled with found treasure, butterflies, rainbows, and true love, youd never believe iteven if it was true. Lets try, anyway: This week, the only things you have to dread are the ones you create. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You trust your senses, but are notoriously skeptical of what lies beyond them, especially the supernatural. Try not to be so close-minded. There are many senses that humans lack: bats and elephants, for instance, can hear and make sounds that are hardly more than theories to us; insects can see well into the ultraviolet spectrum, and some sea creatures use purely electrical senses to locate their hidden prey. Remember: Just because you dont see something doesnt mean its not there, and just because you do see something doesnt mean it is. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) When you consider the enterprise ahead of you in its entirety, youre exhausted to your core. No one can successfully tackle colossally ambitious undertakings like the one(s) youre contemplating all at once. The Great American Novel isnt written in an afternoon, nor is Rome built in a day. Instead, you take them one small part at a time. Break it down, baby, before you break down. What you want to do isnt one big thing: its thousands of little ones. Finish the one you have on hand before picking up the next task, and never look more than two chapters ahead. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Im lucky enough to be able to occasionally spend whole days mostly without shoesnot even flip-flopson my feet. Having as much of my body exposed to sunshine and wind, and feeling tangible contact with the groundespecially when its warm sand or chilly ocean tidesis an important part of feeling contentment, for me. It brings my mind to you Rams, who could benefit from some concrete sensations of connection with community, geography, and the natural forces you treasure (but occasionally forget). This week, go barefoot (or, hell, naked) whenever and wherever you can. -To contact Caeriel, send mail to sign. language.astrology@gmail.com.

WEEKENDER,

facets of a given situation. Since the predicament youre embroiled in is as complicated as it gets, Id suggest listening carefully to the rounded perspectives presented by your smartest friends. As satisfying as it may be to fall behind an opinion that can be summed up in half a sentence, get all the facts before you embarrass yourself by doing so. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although Id still argue that youre the most resourceful of signs, able to respond to a myriad of unforeseeable situations with remarkable grace, this week Im here to give you points for preparedness. Given the assignment to pack a small backpack with everything you might need for an epic journey around the world, youd return in forty minutes with sensible shoes and room in your sack for a good paperback. Still, there are some things that you cant possibly prepare for thoroughly, like the birth of a baby. Only if you forget that basic truth will you be flustered by this weeks events. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) I apologize for forgetting the Libran constitution. Once again, I underestimated your powerful ability to let go of things; for some of you, its what you do best. Hence my recent suggestions that you disregard the handful of unattainables that vex you actually had the opposite of its intended effect. Youd already had the wisdom and grace to release any clingy thoughts that might have held you back. My proposed strategy only served to remind you of that one exasperating thing. So, Im sorry. I promise not to tinker with your cerebral mechanics without good reason. And thank you for your wise rejoinder, which Ive taken to heart: If it aint broke, dont fix it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The deep-sea anglerfish has evolved to address the challenge of finding a mate in the lightless depths where it makes its home. Only the (much larger) female is equipped to hunt (flashing her bioluminescent lure to attract prey). The tiny male, once he finds her, simply attaches himself with his specialized mouth (which is useless for feeding any other way) and is nourished directly through her bloodstream. Hes set for life, and shes provided with a constant fresh supply of sperm whenever she needs it. Couldnt something similar work for you? Although you may not currently need whats being offered, you can certainly anticipate requiring it. At least consider the possibility that reeling in this fish now and keeping it around may be simpler than finding it again when youre ready for it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Although youre riveted by the surprising performance of your dear friend, you shouldnt forget the part you have to play in that show. Whether its curtain-pulling or back-up singing, youd be disappointing too many people if you let your open-mouthed amazement make you miss your cue. Your role, albeit a supporting one, is just as vital to your friends success as the pieces s/ hes been practicing for ages. Shelve your amazement or jealousy until after youve done your duty. Besides the simple decency of supporting your companions dream fulfillments, theres another compelling reason to come through: Your time to shine is coming up, and youll need friends to do the same for you.

RIDE OF THE WEEK

that changes the map and the enemies, letting you figure out how to pass through sections that might look impassable. Early in the game, it isnt used as much as it should be, but later, it can be used a lot. It makes the levels feel much more dynamic and interesting and can open up many secret paths to explore. Traversing the game is a lot like Super Meat Boy there are plenty of pits and spike traps, and even though it can be difficult, dont let it deter you because the frustration is worth it to see all of the locations interesting boss battles. If you like to play with a friend, you are in luck there is drop in, drop out co-op gameplay. The second player gets to play a lady luchador name Tostada, and the two-player is similar to New Super Mario Bros. When a player dies, they get the bubble that takes them to a safe place on the board. It can be a lot of fun, but it does get hard to tell what is going on when it zooms out as a player lags behind. Solo was a better experience for me. If you pick this up, not only do you get the PS3 game for $15, but you also get the PS Vita version for free. Guacamelee! is gaming heaven for fans of 8-bit and 16-bit era platformers, Ay de mi, you will love this game. It has the right amount of nostalgic feel and new innovation to keep you playing all the way through, and with the incredible value, you need to pick this up, especially if you need a great on-the-go game to play on the Vita. -Robbie Vanderveken is the digital operations specialist at The Times Leader.
