Tell @wkdr what your dream car is.
When Alan K. Stout sent me an e-mail a few weeks ago asking if The
Weekender would be interesting in sponsoring the rst-ever Music,
Motors, and More festival, I thought, Do you even have to ask?
With the summer concert season winding down as fall approaches,
theres no better time for one last hurrah on Montage Mountain. But
what makes this festival special isnt just the time of year its the fact
that local musicians, a car and motorcycle show, and ethnic food and
crafts will be available all in one place for a great cause.
That cause is The Bridge Youth Services Anti-Bullying Program. As
a victim of bullying throughout my childhood, I can see why something
like this is necessary, but I never had to deal with cyber bullying or any
of these new issues that have developed over the last few years. I cant
even imagine dealing with that kind of pressure 24/7 at that age, but
thankfully, I can name quite a few local people willing to help.
We interviewed those people on pages 28 and 29. Each of them is
bringing something special to this event, whether its a guitar, a cor-
vette, or simply an ear to listen. I suggest you bring a $10 donation and
an open mind. Maybe youre not a motorhead or you dont like exotic
food, but sharing our differences with one another is exactly what this
festival is all about.

will help ring in the holiday season at the F.M. Kirby Center come Nov. 29 at
7:30 p.m.?
American music icon Kenny Rogers will be on hand that night to bring his
Christmas and Hits Through the Years tour to the local venue.
Throughout a career that has lasted more than four decades, Rogers has effortlessly crossed
the lines between pure country and crossover pop with hits like The Gambler, Through the
Years, Lady, Lucille, Islands in the Stream, She Believes in Me, You Decorated My Life,
and so many more.
Many of those timeless titles will surely nd their way into his set list on Nov. 29, along with
festive Christmas classics like Silent Night, Joy to the World, and White Christmas.

can you catch Pop Evil with special guests Age of Days?
On Oct. 18, the two bands will play at Brews Brothers West in Luzerne.
Onyx, Pop Evils brand new third album, is a triumph of hard rock
perseverance and rabblerousing attitude, the type of record that inspires
like-minded outsiders with optimism. The grandiose melody of the 70s, the danger of the 80s,
the emotion of the 90s, and the loudest of modern riffs all have a home in Pop Evil, who fashion
a fresh sound that looks to the future through the prism of rocks past.
This announcement comes right off the heels of another Butcher Babies have also been
conrmed to play at Brews Brothers West on Oct. 16. Locals may remember the Los Angeles
rockers from their Mayhem Festival appearance in Scranton earlier this summer.
General admission tickets for Pop Evil will go on sale on Sept. 13 at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.
com, charge by phone at .800.745.3000, at all Ticketmaster retail locations, and at the Brews
Brothers West Box Ofce. Tickets will be $12.50 in advance and $15 the day of the show.
Throughout a career that has lasted more than
four decades, Rogers has effortlessly crossed the
lines between pure country and crossover pop.
Fall Out Boy still
a fangirls dream
There is no better way
to spend a Sunday night
than spending it with your
favorite band. Last Sunday,
Sept. 8, I was able to do this
at the Liacouras Center in
Philadelphia with Fall Out
Boy. I can honestly say that
this was one of the best con-
certs I have ever been to. I
felt like a 13-year-old girl at a
One Direction concert.
The show opened up with
duo Twenty One Pilots. It
was my rst time experienc-
ing these guys and they were
fantastic.
Next up was the ever-
lovely Panic! at the Disco.
Brendon Urie, the singer
and only original member
left, knows how to work a
crowd. He got the fans going
by eagerly asking if we were
ready for Fall Out Boy: I
dont think youre ready. Fall
Out Boy is going to come
out and melt your faces off!
Finally the moment all
of us Overcast Kids waited
four long years for was just
minutes away. Fall Out Boy
charged the stage, wearing
black ski masks, with their
new song The Phoenix.
The crowd went wild as we
screamed the lyrics back at
Patrick Stump. Everything
in this moment was per-
fect: jumping, dancing, and
screaming every word with
strangers, being connected
by one thing these four
boys. In between songs,
bassist Pete Wentz spoke to
the crowd, making us feel
like we were friends and not
crazed fans. I like you too,
man; I like all of you. I got
to meet a lot of you earlier
and I realized that you are all
freaks and I love it! Not that
you look like freaks, but you
are all freaks on the inside
and I love it, Wentz said to
his adoring fans.
Dance, Dance, Sugar,
Were Going Down, and
so many other hits were
played that night. Halfway
through the 25-song set,
the stage went black. When
the lights came back on,
Wentz, Stump, and guitar-
ist Joe Trohman had relo-
cated to the middle of the
arena to play an acoustic
set. I couldnt have asked for
anything better. My favor-
ite band was playing my
favorite song, Grand Theft
Autumn, in my favorite
style, acoustic.
When they returned to the
main stage, drummer Andy
Hurley went crazy with an
out-of-this-world drum solo.
After, balloons donned
with the FOB symbol came
out into the crowd as they
played another new song,
Young Volcanoes. During
the second verse, Stump
stopped singing: Sorry guys,
I got distracted by the bal-
loons and forgot the words.
I knew them earlier. His bal-
loon distraction also caused
him to accidently knock
down the microphone stand,
which hit a girl. He apolo-
gized and dedicated What a
Catch, Donnie, to her.
The show was absolutely
incredible. Nothing can
compare to the energy Fall
Out Boy generated. Thnks fr
th mmrs, boys.

Bozzio talks Zappa, Korn, and drumclinics
For more than four decades,
Terry Bozzio has been regarded
as one of the premier go-to guys
for serious musicians looking for a
drummer who is able to adapt to
any style or genre. From his early
days playing jazz in San Francisco,
to his legendary years with Frank
Zappa, and his involvement with
Missing Persons and even heavi-
er acts like Fantmas and Korn,
Bozzio has consistently evolved
and remained a powerhouse in the
drum scene.
While he still delves into proj-
ects with bigger name acts, Bozzio
has also been focusing on smaller
drumming-based shows with his
friends, including percussionist
Tom Shelley, who will be join-
ing Bozzio for an intimate per-
formance at St. Joseph Marello
Hall in Pittston on Monday. The
Weekender recently chatted with
Bozzio about some ner points of
his career, his perspective on cur-
rent music, and his ongoing East
Coast tour.
The Weekender: Being with
Frank Zappa during one of
his most productive periods
launched you into the national
scene. Howdid you get involved
with him?
TerryBozzio: I hadtoaudition. I
was playing with Eddie Henderson
out in San Francisco, and he used
George Duke on his record. George
happened to ask Eddie if he knew
any good drummers around San
Francisco because Frank had audi-
tioned some around Los Angeles
for a couple of weeks. I called
George and he told me what it was
about, and he told me to go down
and give it a shot Within a few
minutes, Frank was just, Nope,
sorry. Next. You cant read, or you
cant do this. It was the most dif-
cult music Ive ever seen laid out
on the stage. I went up there, did
my best, but I really didnt think
I would get it He said, I really
want to hear you again after I hear
the rest of these guys. He turns
to the rest of the drummers, and
theyre all shaking their heads. The
road manager turns back to Frank
and says, Thats it, Frank. Nobody
else wants to audition after Terry.
Zappa turned to me and said,
Looks like you got the gig if you
want it.
W: How was the experience
working with Frank?
TB: It was a pretty amazing
experience; it was like marine boot
camp for musicians. We worked
really hard, and Frank was an
incredible genius: really smart
and a great musician on many
levels. He had several talents he
could have made a career out of
just with comedy. He was really
a genius. In terms of just being a
great guitarist, he was fantastic.
He was a classical composer and
a rock star and a band leader and
arranger.
W: One of the things youre
most associated with Zappa
is the nightmare, The Black
Page. What was your reaction
when Frank rst presented it to
you?
TB: Frank walked into rehearsal
one day and said, What do you
think about this, Bozzio? I was
like, Wow, Im impressed. I just
picked away at it for about 20 min-
utes a day before rehearsals. After
about a week, I was able to play
it for him. So he took it back and
wrote the melody and the chord
changes for it. After that, we began
playing it as a band. I was the rst
one to play it and record it, and
he said thats his favorite version.
Its a big notch in my gun, because
otherwise I would have been a foot-
note in the life of Frank Zappa.
W: Has it become easier for
you to do live nowadays?
TB: Its hard, period. Its kind
of like that level of difculty that
doesnt get any more difcult;
theres just more of it. I would say
Moe n Herbs Vacation is equally
as difcult as The Black Page
and many of the other pieces Frank
wrote, but theyre pages long
When you play a piece of music
everyday whether its improvised
or pre-composed you always
want to make it better than the
last time you played it. The Black
Page has many places where you
can have pitfalls. Even though Ive
got it memorized and still con-
tinue to play it from time to time,
I didnt play it for about 30 years
until I started to play with Chad
(Wackerman) again after Frank
had died, and we decided to play it
as a duet. It was hell. Just to look at
it and go, Oh crap, how does this
go again? was tough. Now that
Ive got it, I dont ever want to lose
it again.
W: A few years ago, you were
involved with two surprising
outts: Korn and Fantmas.
What do you think about some
of the other current bands and
drummers?
TB: Theres a lot of great drum-
mers; I cant even begin to name all
of them. In terms of the music they
play with the bands that get them
notoriety, I really dont see, to me,
much exciting stuff thats happen-
ing. The kind of music I really like,
I have to dig out and nd; Im very
picky Although I can name you
50 great drummers who are out
there today, and you would prob-
ably know all their names its
obvious theyre great. Not many
of them play music I really like to
hear. Im an old guy and Im jaded.
[Laughs]
W: For your current tour, are
these shows considered drum
clinics?
TB: In a way. You can call them
that; I really dont care. Tom does
his bit where he plays with some
tapes and stuff and some tunes.
Hes got a whole laser show and
black lights going on, and the
younger kids love that. He also
does a little drum circle where he
hands out percussion instruments
and everyone gets a chance to play
and have some fun. Then I come
on and do my thing, and its a
solo performance no matter what,
whether its in a music store or a
nice theater. I just close my eyes
and do my compositions, or impro-
vise in a compositional manner.
After that, Tom and I play
together, and he just happens to
play in a way where I really like it;
he has all kinds of toys. Coming
from Miles Davis and Weather
Report, to a novice you might con-
sider it extreme background noise,
but to me its like these colors of
percussion that I dont have on my
kit. I really like hearing that stuff
when Im playing. We have a good
pairing, and we have a lot of fun. If
kids learn, great; if they dont, too
bad. [Laughs]
W: How would you describe
the overall feel of these shows
for people who come and see
you?
TB: It will be fun, educational,
and mind-blowing for everyone in
the audience. It will be something
like theyve never seen before.
Musical solo drumming from me,
some amazing percussion from
Tom, and some drum circles for
the kids. Youre going to learn
something, too Ill explain some
of my crazy techniques from my
advanced rhythmic concepts to
them. For anyone whos interested
in drums or music, it would be ben-
ecial for them to experience this.

Growing up, teenagers
experience a mixed bag of
emotions, most of them
centered on their individual
place in this world. In Meg
Wolitzers latest novel, The
Interestings, we come to
know a cast of characters
who demonstrate a profound
message of individualism,
acceptance and, more impor-
tantly, the life they lived to
become that person.
The novel opens in 1974
at a progressive and artsy
summer camp, Spirit-in-
the-Woods, located on the
East Coast in the Berkshire
Mountains. Readers are
introduced to characters
Ethan Figman, Jonah
Bay, Cathy Kiplinger, and
Ash and Goodman Wolf,
who dub their group The
Interestings. However, the
summer becomes all that
much more fascinating when
they initiate outsider Jules
Jacobsen into the group.
Though vastly unique in
their creative abilities, these
six characters band together
through thick and thin.
While each member of the
group shares his or her story,
it is perhaps Jules who is the
most pivotal of all. Always
pensive, Jules pondered her
place in the group, the mem-
bers and even its name: The
name was ironic, and the
improvisational christening
was jokily pretentious, but
still, Julie Jacobsen thought,
they were interesting. These
teenagers all around her, all
of them from New York City,
were like royalty and French
movie stars, with a touch of
something papal. Everyone
at this camp was supposedly
artistic, but here, as far as
she could tell, was the hot
little nucleus of the place.
Indeed, The Interestings
provide the most fun in the
book, coming in and out of
the novel like brilliant patch-
work colorful and neatly
assembled.
Meanwhile, as readers
gain more insight regard-
ing the group, the backdrop
becomes ever present as
politics, war and human
rights become predominant
themes in The Interestings
maturing world. Something
that separates this novel
from most coming-of-age
works is that Wolitzer fol-
lows The Interestings
throughout a course of four
decades. Throughout nearly
500 pages, the characters
lives culminate as an assort-
ment of happy, ordinary and
sad endings. Even consider-
ing the timeframe, each of
their narratives becomes
uid, owing freely with
veracity and force.
The novel teaches readers
that life is a series of unex-
pected events that can make
or break us if we so choose.
Wolitzer does well to give
us a very insightful and real-
istic look into those tough
choices. While the ending is
somber, the overall message
throughout the novel is hope-
ful. More than ever, The
Interestings express that
while we may experience
turbulent times, our inspi-
ration, humor and friend-
ships can help us overcome
even the worst of situations.

Of all the music that was creat-
ed in the 90s, one can argue that
two bands make up a majority of
the inuence on what kids listen
to today: Radiohead and Nine
Inch Nails.
Rock is slowly becoming a
niche genre, but lead singer and
producer Trent Reznors pio-
neering use of electronics on his
early albums still sounds refresh-
ing thanks to the explosion of
the EDM scene and its burst
into pop music. On Hesitation
Marks, Reznor has tackled the
giant monster that is pop music.
Who would have thought that
this years most talked about rap
album would be closer to a NIN
record than Kayne Wests?
Now, just because the band
has included elements of a more
pop-toned sound does not mean
Nine Inch Nails went soft. In
fact, its quite the opposite.
Hesitation Marks incorporat-
ed these pop elements to create
a heavy-hitter that is exclusively
its own and exclusively rock
and roll.
The rst full-length track is
Copy of A, and it is in every
way, shape, and form a summa-
tion of everything the band has
done uptothis point. Came Back
Haunted follows and it is just a
touch more eerie than its prede-
cessor. In fact, it would make for a
perfect backing track for a horror
movie. Its jam-packed with dark
sounds, picking up and getting
harder at some points, creating
an element of surprise that would
make the average listener jump in
the dark.
Hesitation Marks is one of
the most complete and complex
works NIN has done up to this
point. It brings the band full circle
and combines all of the elements
that a fan of the band would want
to hear. Reznor made a state-
ment, and it is that the best is yet
to come from him.
-Matt Morgis,
Weekender Correspondent
Ministry has tried this before the whole
this is our last album thing. Thebands cre-
ator/vocalist/lifeblood Al Jourgensen stated
back in 2007, upon Ministrys The Last
Sucker record, that they would indeed call
it a career at that point due to Jourgensens
health issues. Now, in 2013, Ministrys tak-
inganother stabat a nal bow; however, this
one seems somewhat more likely to take.
Jourgensens musical partner in crime
for the past 20-odd years, guitarist Mike
Scaccia, was a major contributor to
It is Goodie Mobs rst album
in 14 years as a complete group
(Big Gipp, Khujo, and T-Mo
released the album, One Monkey
Dont Stop No Show a diss to
Green in 2004).
But Green, a six-time Grammy
winner, clearly stands out with
ease alongside his longtime group
mates for much of the 17-track
album. While the others have
some shining moments, Greens
talents shine brighter on this proj-
ect.
His soulful vocals and lyrics are
strong and digestible on songs
such as Nexperience and Ghost
of Gloria Goodchild. He sings
about his rst interracial relation-
ship on Amy and talks about
howhis burgeoning star appeal as
a solo artist has given him some
advantages in life on Power.
Goodie Mobs messages are
thought-provoking and insight-
ful throughout their fth album.
They touch on topics from bully-
ing (the Janelle Monae-assisted
Special Education) to art-
istry in music (State of the Art
(Radio Killa)) to race (Kolors).
Production wise, there are some
missteps; some of Goodie Mobs
sonically-enriched tracks lack
their signature Southern sound,
including ImSet and Come As
You Are.
-Jonathan Landrum Jr.,
Associated Press
Ministrys best work, like 1992s platinumPsalm
69, and unexpectedly passed away in 2012 after
sufferingaheart attackonstage. Scacciawas often
referred to by Jourgensen as my little brother,
making the setback more meaningful and per-
haps unrecoverable in a musical sense. If this
is in fact the last Ministry record, Jourgensens
got one nal blast of apocalyptic, maniacally
mechanized noise to unleash upon the masses.
Ministry was always at its most potent with
heaping, thrash-ripped guitar terror at the heart
of its techno-industrial base. Tracks here like
PermaWar echo back to erce nuggets of black-
ened chaos like Just One Fix from Psalm 69.
Cuts like Lesson Unlearned are also deranged
arrangements of cut-and-paste guitar-heavy
expression the late Scaccia contributing his
patented serrated guitar lines prior to his pass-
ing.
Tracks like Change of Luck are a snapshot
of Ministrys earlier, more ambient, synthesizer-
based sound. Enjoy the Quiet shows just what
makes the mentally unstable musical mind of Al
Jourgensen tick rushing ourishes of white
noise, disembodied voices, and Jourgensens own
whispered growl intro, make the song that much
more frightening, tothinkthat this might actually
be Jourgensens reality. Hearing him snarl about
how weve turned the world into a petri dish in
Perfect Storm, amid a very Kreator-sounding
evil metal assault, ensures that his reputation
for blunt force honesty and unapologetic musi-
cal mashup show no signs of becoming dulled.
True pioneers of a cringe-inducing, industrial
musical bruise, Ministry sounds like theyre still
up to no good on what may turn out to be their
last hurrah. If this is it, what a way to go out.
-Mark Uricheck,
Weekender Correspondent
Ministrys last holds
up to catalog
Goodie Mob reunited for their new album,
Age Against the Machine, but the four-
somes offering seems more like the CeeLo
Green Show.

Timberlake releasing more
of The 20/20 Experience
Justin Timberlake is
set to release The 20/20
Experience 2 of 2 on Sept.
30. The album is the sec-
ond installment of a group
of songs that the superstar
created over a year ago.
At the time, there was a
chance that the material
would never see the light
of day.
Tim and I went in
(to the studio) over a
year ago with Rob Knox,
Jerome Harmon a bunch
of great producers, said
Timberlake via telephone
on The Ralphie Show,
referring to producer
Timbaland. I just told
them, I said, Look, I dont
have any expectations
for this music even com-
ing out. Lets just write a
bunch of music and have
fun doing it and keep it to
ourselves.
Joking that the group
prevented leaks by simply
taking their hard drives
or threatening people,
Timberlake and company
went to work. They pro-
duced 30 songs in 20 days
without even a murmur that
something was brewing.
The result is The 20/20
Experience and an experi-
ence in creating music that
pushed Timberlake into a
new mindset.
I actually think taking
such a conscious break from
FutureSex/LoveSounds
up until last year you
recharge your brain in a
way where you come in
with all of these ideas for
songs, he reected of the
process. I think thats why
we ended up with so much
material.
Originally, The 20/20
Experience was to consist
of 10 tracks on each of the
proper, standard releases
with bonus material on
deluxe editions. The sec-
ond LP now includes 11
songs on the nal track
listing because Timberlake
simply wanted to share
what he created. With the
album and supporting
solo tour on the horizon,
the singer agreed that this
entire year back in music
has reinvigorated his inter-
est and desire to write,
record, release, and tour
behind albums.
I would go even fur-
ther to say, yunno, its
always been my rst love,
Timberlake noted. I feel
like now we have some-
thing to say, and thats why
we decided this was the
year to do it.
ONE DIRECTION
STAR COMES
THROUGH FOR
DUNMORE TEEN
Kelcey Hallinan is a
Dunmore teen ghting for
her life in Philadelphias
Children Hospital due to
a rare form of lymphoma.
The cancer made the
recent high school graduate
so ill that she was unable to
go through with a meet-
and-greet that the Make-
A-Wish foundation wanted
to set-up with her and One
Direction.
So, despite the boy
bands very busy schedule,
Harry Styles found a way to
reach Hallinan and lift her
spirits and he didnt even
have to hop on a plane.
The most recognizable
member of 1D tweeted
a message to the teen
Sunday.
Hi @kelceyhal its nice
to meet you, the singer
wrote. Im thinking about
you.. And sending you all
my love. H .xx.
Over 72,000 people have
retweeted the update,
with over 100,000 users
marking it as a favorite
tweet. Kelcey had about
500 followers over the
weekend. As of press time,
she sits at above 30,000.
Styles didnt stop there.
According to WBRE, the
star had a Skype chat with
Kelcey on Monday and
promised her that he would
have a cancer ribbon tat-
tooed on him in her honor.

Riddick belongs in space prison
Rating: W W V
I dont know if this makes
any sense, so Im just going
to say it anyway: Im not
a fan of David Twohy, but
I still believe hes a decent
writer/director. Films like
Pitch Black and A Perfect
Getaway have either left me
cold or indifferent, but I can
still recognize the fact that
Twohy isnt a hack. Even if
you dont like his lms, you
have to admit that his genre
work frequently includes
surprising and inventive ele-
ments. Hes a solid director;
hes just not for me.
And one of the few reasons
why Twohy isnt the director
for me is the fact that he keeps
casting Vin Diesel in movies.
Its 2013. Were all a little
older and wiser. Why havent
we still outgrown Vin Diesel?
Whats the fascination? Hes
less charismatic than Steven
Seagal, looks like a really buff
Tim Conway, and sounds
like Sylvester Stallone after
a severely debilitating stroke.
Hes a lumbering, mumbling
pork mound: a half a dozen
rump roasts uneasily encased
within a basic black tank top.
To paraphrase WFMU DJ
Tom Scharpling, this is the
kind of a guy who couldnt
get a job working in a gym.
Why is he a movie star?
But, whatever the reason
may be, Diesel is a movie
star (at least for the time
being) and were just going to
have to accept the fact that,
on occasion, Diesel will be
required to appear on lm
and do things that are well
beyond his capabilities, such
as talking to people, point-
ing at objects, and moving
about at a moderate pace.
Fortunately, when Twohy
cast Diesel in Riddick, he
realized that Diesel is far less
horrible when hes moving
very slowly and isnt talking.
So for the rst 30 minutes
of Riddick, there is barely
any dialogue. It simply con-
sists of wanted space crimi-
nal Richard Riddick (Diesel)
crawling through a barren
alien landscape, murdering
otherworldly creatures, and
befriending a zebra/dingo/
dog-type creature. Its slow-
paced, but also oddly compel-
ling. Theres something beau-
tiful about an action movie
that carefully takes its time.
But, unfortunately,
Riddicks quiet art house
qualities are lost the moment
Diesel realizes that the
serpentine monsters from
Pitch Black are gradually
swarming the planet, and he
attempts to escape by trigger-
ing an emergency beacon in
an abandoned outpost. Two
teams of rival bounty hunt-
ers arrive to drag the affable
monster back to space prison
(or a galaxy gulag your
choice, of course) but their
general incompetence leaves
them stranded and forced
into an uneasy alliance with
Riddick.
Its at this point that what-
ever goodwill Riddick
established over the past half-
hour quickly disintegrates.
The lm, unbelievably, slows
down even more to introduce
a new slate of mostly inter-
changeable characters, and
Diesel starts talking more.
Sure, the change in direction
introduces some great pitch-
black comedic setpieces, con-
sistently quotable dialogue
(like, Will you get off my
freakin frequency? and Say
something Bible-like over
these bodies), and enter-
taining performances from
Katee Sackhoff and Bokeem
Woodbine, but these ele-
ments are sparingly doled out
over the course of the lms
second half. The movie drags
when it should be picking up
momentum.
Riddick transforms into
something far more con-
ventional, and even though
it never exactly becomes a
chore to watch, it isnt all
that enjoyable either. Like all
of Twohys lms, Riddick
is just good enough to make
you wish it was better.
W
Even Vin Diesel seems bored with Riddick, a slow-moving sequel that
could have been better.

Hexagons, art bring students
and the world together
This past weekend
at First Friday in
Scranton, the Connell
Gallery and the Library
Express featured
Interdependence Day
Hexagon Project Exhibit
VII.
I nt e rde pe nde nc e
means to bring the
people of the world
closer together to
transcend hatred, bias,
and resentment, and turn
our energies to devising
ways in which we can
coexist creatively and
collaboratively.
Interdependence Day
was founded 10 years
ago, on Sept. 12, 2003,
by Sondra Myers.
Committee member
and organizer of the
Scranton event, Beth
Burkhauser, spoke about
how students can get
involved with the project.
I work a lot with art
teachers throughout
the country and the
world. They can do this
project any way they
want to. The project can
be collaborative; you
can have more than one
student working together
to solve a problem, or
you can have individual
students do research,
which is something
I value a great deal.
They learn about an
interdependence theme,
hunger in the world, and
childrens or womens
rights, and investigate
those themes.
This year, students
from Nepal and Haiti are
featured in the exhibit.
Also, 24 schools from
the Chicago area donated
their hexagons from their
Do Your PArt exhibit
to The Connell Gallery.
I believe that arts
can save the world,
Burkhauser said.
This Sunday, Sept.15
from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.,
the Connell Gallery will
be hosting a recognition
event for the exhibiting
students and their family
and friends where awards
will be given.
Interdependence Day
2013 will celebrate its
10-year anniversary on
Thursday, Sept. 12 at
the Scranton Cultural
Center.
To get involved with
the Hexagon Project and
other Interdependence
Day projects, visit the

Giving rise to the fallen
Beneath the roaring
planes that will constantly
offer rides to event-goers,
the performances by local
talent, and the deliciousness
that is typical fair food, there
is an event that is dedicated
solely to some of the most
treasured members of a com-
munity: law enforcement
ofcers.
The Airport Day fundrais-
er will be put on by Fallen
Ofcers Remembered on
Sept. 14 at Valley Aviation in
Forty Fort, and its a gather-
ing whose origins lie in an
actual fallen ofcer and a
need to honor him and his
comrades as much as pos-
sible.
Fallen Ofcers
Remembered was founded
by Jaclyn Pocceschi Mosley
and Gina Pocceschi Boyle
in 2004. The sisters began
the organization in memory
of their brother, Virginia
Beach Police Ofcer Rodney
Pocceschi, who was killed in
the line of duty on June 23,
2003.
Rodney was a 1988
graduate of Pittston High
School and has his bachelors
degree in criminal justice.
He worked as a Bloomsburg
University and Nescopeck
police ofcer before trans-
ferring to Virginia in 1999
to enroll in its academy.
Rodney worked as a Virginia
Beach Police Ofcer and was
promoted in 2003 to Special
Operations Force before his
untimely passing.
Fallen Ofcers
Remembered began as a way
to start a scholarship fund
for criminal justice students
in the area, but soon the
sisters saw that there was a
great need elsewhere.
In 2006, through con-
versations with ofcers, we
found out that there were
a lot of part-time ofcers in
our area, about 70 percent
of them part-time, Gina
said. These ofcers arent
given vacation time, sick
time, benets, pensions, and
their equipment. They had
to purchase all their gear. We
found out that ofcers were
not wearing bulletproof
vests because they could not
afford the $1,000 to $1,200
cost for one. Some wore
old, out of warranty, improp-
erly tted ones. It was after
hearing that, we came for-
ward with a program called
Adopt-A-Cop. Anyone can
adopt a cop by donating the
total funds needed to vest an
ofcer.
Gina said that vest appli-
cations far exceed dona-
tions, so the organization
holds events to raise funds.
Valley Aviation is kind
enough to donate their facil-
ity and all their workers for
our event, she said.
Its now the third year for
the Airport Day fundraiser,
and its grown quite a bit.
We started with only
six vendors and are now up
to 15, Gina said. We also
have a lot of different things
that go on inside the hangar,
such as music and K9 dem-
onstrations.
There will be plenty of
planes on display, but there
will also be some that attend-
ees can ride. For $20 per
person, you can hop on a
Cessna 172; for $175, a SNJ
Navy plane; and for $60, a
Huskie Tail Dragger.
There are also rafe bas-
kets with chances for $2
each. The baskets include
goods from Sweat Fitness
Studio, Wilkes-Barre/
Scranton Penguins, Avon,
and Marcs Tattooing.
Some vendors at the event
include Silpada Jewelry,
Scentsy, face painting, bal-
loon making, craft vendors,
and a moon bounce.

Listen toLouder Than Hell
As much as I love to read, its been
tough to get in a book lately. Ive mostly
stuck to comic books and magazines that
I can get through in a sitting or two, but
when I read about Louder Than Hell:
The Denitive Oral History of Metal, I
couldnt help but dive into the pit.
It did not disappoint. Written and
compiled from over 400 interviews by
music journalists Jon Wiederhorn and
Katherine Turman, this thing is packed
with over 700 pages of practically every-
thing youd ever want to know about the
genre. It covers metals early formation
and growth into the many sub-genres we
know today, breaking things up chrono-
logically by the various trends and waves
that have swept hard rock since the 60s,
from the New Wave of British Heavy
Metal to thrash to hardcore to industrial
to nu metal to death and black metal and
into the present.
The organization of all this informa-
tion would have been impressive enough,
but its the way it reads that makes this
book so interesting. The interviews are
broken up in such a way that the entire
thing reads like a conversation, as if Ozzy
Osbourne, Axl Rose, Rob Zombie, Trent
Reznor, Lemmy Kilmister, Cory Taylor,
Ronnie James Dio, Lars Ulrich, Kerry
King, and hundreds more were all just
sitting in the same room with you tell-
ing this story. Other than the occasional
paragraph to transition from one subject
to the next, almost the entire thing is
straight from the dark horses mouth.
It doesnt shy away from any topic,
either, explicitly describing drug use,
sexual escapades, controversies, arrests,
and even murder. If youre one of those
people that love the juicy stuff, theres
plenty of that in Louder Than Hell, but
theres also a lot of focus on the music
itself: where famous songs came from,
what was running through their minds
at the time, and how they went from no-
name bums to cultural icons. As you may
have noted in many of my music articles
in The Weekender, I enjoy letting the
interview subject guide the piece by
using extensive quotes and letting them
tell their own story in their own words,
so with this book so heavily focused on
quotations, I knew I would nd it that
much more fascinating because rock
stars are extremely quotable.
Its honest, brutal, hilarious, and sad
all at once, and whenever I had to put it
down, I wondered when I would be able
to pick it up again. In fact, my only gripe
is when I was nished, I wanted more.
Considering the authors had so much
ground to cover in only so much space,
I can see why they breezed over some
things like Swedish melodic death metal,
so really all Im asking for is a sequel.
What got left on the cutting room oor?
I need to know!
Much like Scott Ian describes in his
foreword and Rob Halford discusses in
his afterword, metal fans are voracious
followers who cannot help but immerse
themselves in the music and its rebel-
lious attitude, as I have since I was a
teenager, so this book allowed me to
continue that quest for every scrap of
veried information I could nd, and
who better to verify it than those who
lived it?
Even if youre not the most hardcore
metalhead, if you consider yourself a
music nerd in any way or just enjoy
reading about music and/or extreme life-
styles, then pick up Louder Than Hell.
It truly captures the power of this genre
and what it drives people to do, whether
that is succeed and become millionaires
or break off from society and become
devil worshippers. It dispels rumors and
confesses the truth in an uninching and
exceptionally readable format, and best
of all, I related to the musicians stories
in the same way Ive related to their
work.
Well, except for the devil worshipping
part, but most of that is just for show
anyway. Youve got to put on a good
show, after all, but sometimes what goes
on backstage is just as fascinating.

A
ll summer long,
youve been to
concerts, car
and motorcycle
shows, ethnic
food festivals, and craft
shows, but have you been
T
he musical lineup
for Music, Motors,
and More may
be diverse, but
each local act has one
thing in common theyve
all recorded at Saturation
Acres in Dupont with
owner/producer Bret
Alexander of roots rock
band The Badlees.
Working as a studio
engineer in 1990,
Alexander joined The
Badlees after he ended
up playing many of
the guitar parts on the
groups rst EP, eventually
becoming the bands
primary songwriter. Its
appropriate, then, that he
and bassist Paul Smith
would eventually return to
a studio to form something
even bigger in 1999.
It just seemed logical to
go back to the production
side of things because we
learned a lot over the years
making records, and we
learned a lot about how
national records were made
and how national bands
became national bands,
so we just kind of brought
it back to the local area,
Alexander recalled.
We werent really
interested in showing
Cruisin for a
cause
anybody a picture of
our board or listing our
equipment. It was more
like, Were going to teach
you guys how to make
records. All the things
that they were going
through we already went
throughand we forged a
lot of great friendships that
go to this day.
With the help of longtime
friend Alan K. Stout, he
chose the festivals bands,
each representing different
styles that are not only
inuenced by Alexander,
but in turn inuence him.
I think my inuence
creeps into their stuff and
their inuence creeps
into mine. Its certainly
a scene. Its certainly a
community, and we all love
it, Alexander said of the
NEPA bands.
The Badlees are well-
loved not just locally, but
nationally, continuing
to tour and produce
new music, including an
upcoming double album
due out Oct. 8.
We have a handful of
singers in the band, so on
the one album I sing and
the other album our lead
singer sings. Theyre kind
of divided stylistically a
bit, too. One is a little
slicker and poppier, and the
other one is a little more
of a darker Americana
kind of record. So that
was a concept we came up
with recently to do some
different things, Alexander
explained.
An album isnt
necessarily a career move.
Its a little more of an
artistic thing.
Citing The Badlees
Amazing Grace and side
project The Cellarbirds
Perfect Smile as his
favorite records hes
written, Alexander is just
as disciplined with his
own work as he is with
others, producing on his
own and learning several
instruments along the way.
You just kind of have to
get up in the morning and
set aside a certain time to
do it. I dont usually wait
to be inspired. Theres an
author, Tom Robbins I
always use this quote. He
said, My muse doesnt
visit me every day, but she
knows where to nd me.
Thats kind of the same
thing. You just got to keep
showing up and eventually
youre going to get it right
a few times, he humbly
stated.
Usually its just a matter
of practicality. There wasnt
a producer around, so you
learn how to produce. I
play a lot of instruments,
too, and it was the same
philosophy.
And it pays off, as The
Badlees are still in high
demand throughout the
year.
If youre in a band and
you have some sort of
success and theres offers to
come perform and offers to
make recordings, if youve
had any measure of success
at all, youre going to be
asked to do those things. So
those things kind of show
up in our case, he noted.
Despite this wealth of
knowledge and experience,
however, Music, Motors,
and More is still a relatively
new experience for the
prolic producer, but
one he believes will be
successful.
This is a leap of faith
for us because theres other
components to it that arent
really overseen by us This
is kind of new territory for
us, so were just excited to
see how it turns out.
W
to an event that combines
every one?
Welcome to the rst-ever
Music, Motors, and More
festival, a groundbreaking
new event created by Live
Nation to support The
Bridge Youth Services
Anti-Bullying Program
and the Wyoming Valley
Childrens Association,
Music
What is your
favorite driving
music?
My favorite driving music is whatever my wife
Shawnsie puts on the mixed CD. She has an
awesome taste in music, so its always a safe bet
Im going to like it. She typically makes and titles
mixed CDs specifcally for whatever trip were
taking, too, so its always new. Tim Farley of
Farley
Its no secret that I am a big Beatles fan. When
I am not blasting Beatles music in my car, I tend
to try out my own songs at loud volume. It feels
good to see the response from other motorists!
Eddie Appnel
For me, driving music always depends on the
situation. Lately, Ive been listening to Leroy
Justice, Wilco, and Keith Urban-type stuf for
those free-feeling sunny day drives. Hunter
Hayes I Want Crazy is a current go-to song, too.
If Im trying to blow of some stress, I turn to
my Hawaii Mix that has stuf from Bob Marley,
Common Kings, and J-Boog. If were talking late-
night driving, I go to Kacey Musgraves and John
Mayers newer stuf. k8
For me, the best driving tunes is some good old
classic rock. Deep Purples Highway Star or any
AC/DC always help a long drive go by quicker.
Dustin Drevitch
Driving is usually when I like to think, so I like
music thats a little bit deeper when Im driving.
Ill listen to metal when Im working out, and Ill
listen to pop when Im a lighter mood. Driving is
my thinking time, so I like listening to something
like (Bruce) Springsteen or The Badlees, artists
like that that have a little bit of depth to their
lyrics. Alan K. Stout, festival organizer and
Music on the Menu host
The truth is I dont listen to music in my car. I
listen to music all day. When Im driving, I want
quiet. Bret Alexander of The Badlees and
Saturation Acres
picking up where Concert
for a Cause left off, in a
way.
For only $10, the Toyota
Pavilion at Montage
Mountain will provide
a full day of fun and
entertainment for the whole
family, but with all these
simultaneous experiences
going on, a breakdown of
everything
may be
warranted.

at The

ith all this
combined with
handmade
crafts and
delicious food, what other
reason would you possibly
need to go? Well, Alan K.
Stout can think of a pretty
good one.
The community and
resource development
coordinator with Catholic
Social Services has been
teaching an anti-bullying
course at Wyoming Valley
West Middle School as
part of The Bridge Youth
Services Anti-Bullying
Program, and hes learned
quite a bit about what
kids go through and why
bullying occurs.
Youd be surprised at
how remarkably candid
they can be with why
theyre there, Stout
pointed out.
Theyll tell me what
they did; Ill ask them why.
Obviously a lot of times
they dont have a good
answer for that, so we need
to try to get to the root of it
a little bit. Theres a pretty
prevalent theory that bullies
at some point in their lives
were bullied Theyre
taking that behavior
that theyve learned and
projecting it out to others.
They can talk about that if
they want to. Its all about
getting it out there and
trying to move forward.
S
cott Walter has been
attending car shows
since the age of 13
with his father.
My father was into it
since he was in high school,
and then he had gotten
out of it and he got back
into it with me when I was
young, Walter recalled.
Now the proud owner of
a 1989 Corvette L98, the
Lain resident joined the
Corvette Club of NEPA and
has participated in many
charity events since, though
Music, Motors, and More
may be the most unique
one yet.
We do a lot of club
events. We do a lot of
driving events. This is the
rst show were doing in a
number of years, Walter
noted.
It was an invitation from
Live Nation and we decided
to take it up.
It will be showcasing
20 different classes, with
registration at 8 a.m.
until noon for $15, which
includes admission to
the entire event for the
driver and those in the car.
Judging is at 12:30 p.m.,
and awards will be given at
3 p.m.
Its a long day of hard
work, but its enjoyable,
Walter said.
He agreed that this
event could attract those
The four-week after-
school program runs from
November through late
May, and participating
students are chosen by
the school administration
some are kids who are
bullied, some are kids who
have bullied others, and
some are simply anti-
bullying advocates. The
program, which has been
running for about four
years, is currently in the
Wyoming Valley West and
Wilkes-Barre Area school
districts and covers the ve
different types of bullying
physical, verbal, property,
exclusion, and cyber
bullying
When I was a kid, this
(type of education) didnt
happen. Adults, I dont
want to say they looked the
other way, but I think there
was this mentality that it
was a part of growing up
and kids will be kids. You
think back on it and thats
nonsense. It shouldnt be
a part of growing up. I tell
my kids when I teach them
in the class that its hard
enough to come to this
school every day and do
well with your subjects,
Stout emphasized.
Its something I feel
strongly about, especially
now that I have kids. It
was always a topic that
bothered me, but when
you have children, its real
who may not normally
attend car shows, and
they may walk away
with an appreciation for
these polished vehicles,
particularly the corvettes
that have left an indelible
mark on him.
The reason, personally,
that I got involved was
I was intrigued by the
engineering. Im into
mechanical things, he said
of corvettes.
Its Americas rst true
sports car.
A motorcycle show
presented by members
of the Wyoming Valley
Childrens Association will
also satisfy motorheads
looking to check out a
chopper or two.
W
heartbreaking to think
that anybodys child would
have that sort of anxiety
every day over just going to
school.
And with students
throughout the country
even taking their own
lives due to the pressures
of bullying, Stout believes
programs like this are more
important now than ever.
To have these kinds of
discussions with students
creates a culture because
they take it outside of those
classes. Theyre the ones
that are in the hallways.
Theyre the ones that
are out at the bus stops.
Theyre the ones that are
in the cafeteria and the
gym. What Ive noticed at
Wyoming Valley West is
theres an incredible anti-
bullying culture.
As the host of
Music on the Menu on
102themountain.com and
98.5 HD2 and an award-
winning music journalist,
Stout is also still heavily
involved with the local
music scene. Knowing that
he helped organize the
nal Concert for a Cause
to benet the anti-bullying
program, Live Nation asked
him to do the same with
Music, Motors, and More,
raising funds to continue
the program with no charge
to schools.
I like music I think
a lot of people know that.
And I like local music. I
was involved with Bret
Alexander in picking the
talent for this show and I
think weve put together
a great lineup of artists,
so Im obviously looking
forward to that. Im not
a motorcyclist or a car
collectorbut even though
I dont have them, I sure
as hell like looking at them
just as much as the next
guy, he commented.
Ive got to give the
people at Live Nation
credit. They opened up the
season this year with the
Old Farmers Ball, which
was anchored by local
talent, and theyre closing
the season with an event
anchored by local talent.
They reached out to me
about this event. Theyre
the ones that proposed it
to us at The Bridge Youth
Services, so its exciting to
work with a company like
that at a venue like that on
something for charity that
will help local kids.

Maybe it was apparent
because his sweat-covered
face was featured on gigan-
tic screens that sat atop the
iconic concrete steps of the
Philadelphia Museum of
Art, or maybe it was the
tight set of hits blended
seamlessly with new cuts,
but anyone who stayed until
the end of the Budweiser
Made In America on Sept.
1 knew that Trent Reznor
had come back haunted
and more determined than
ever.
Nine Inch Nails has
only made a few festival
appearances since Reznor
reformed the band, and
while this set, which start-
ed around 9:30 p.m. Sunday
night, was similar to
Lollapaloozas a month ear-
lier, it was no less intense.
He entered the stage alone,
bright white lights cast-
ing his towering shadow
behind him on blank white
walls, and as his bandmates
entered, he began building
into Copy of A from their
new album, Hesitation
Marks. Next, they jumped
back almost immediately to
1989s Sanctied, then
forward again for Came
Back Haunted.
Its good to be back,
and I appreciate you being
here, he told the crowd,
and it felt like he meant it
as he relived emotion after
dark emotion on Terrible
Lie, Burn, Closer,
Gave Up, Somewhat
Damaged, Wish, and
many more staples of the
NIN catalog.
The 20-song, hour-
and-a-half headlining set
ended with The Hand
That Feeds, Head Like a
Hole, and Hurt, leaving
a quiet, somber end to a
bright and busy day.
The Weekender arrived
for the second day of Jay Zs
two-day annual festival in
the early afternoon, catch-
ing the energetic and soul-
ful Fitz and the Tantrums
just before 2 p.m. The
Gaslight Anthem took the
Rocky Stage (main stage)
an hour later, and while
their 11 songs were remi-
niscent of a young Bruce
Springsteen, their dull
stage presence left much to
be desired from guys half
The Boss age.
Just so hip-hop fans
knew there was more to
this festival than rock,
Kendrick Lamar killed that
vibe with his Top 40 hits,
while Wiz Khalifa took a
much more chill, peace-
loving approach, even shar-
ing something in common
with Warped-style acoustic
punks The Front Bottoms,
who played the small Skate
Park Stage simultaneously
their songs both promi-
nently featured toking up.
After declaring his love
of Philly cheesesteaks and
taking note of the crowds
apparel, Macklemore and
Ryan Lewis busted into
Thrift Shop around 7
p.m., accompanied by live
dancers and trombones,
but the pair werent just
there to have fun.
Who you are in your
heart is up to you,
Macklemore emphasized,
saying that no government
or institution should be
able to decide who some-
one can love the perfect
introduction for Same
Love. Cant Hold Us
closed the shoulder-to-
shoulder set.
Particularly compared to
Calvin Harris, who bored
with his ashy pre-record-
ed DJ set, Queens of the
Stone Age absolutely killed
it, blowing through No
One Knows, Little Sister,
and A Song for the Dead,
but truly shining on brand
new songs from Like
Clockwork, such as opener
My God Is the Sun, I Sat
by the Ocean, Smooth
Sailing, If I Had a Tail,
and the lonely piano ballad
The Vampyre of Time and
Memory.
Frontman Josh Homme
continually reminded the
crowd to break the rules
and just have fun, even
scolding a security guard
for trying to pull a girl
down from her boyfriends
shoulders.
What is this, your f
king parents house?
Homme yelled.
No, it certainly was not.
It was the middle of the
Benjamin Franklin Parkway
on a warm Sunday evening,
and if there were any rules
established about how to
put a successful festival
together, Jay Z broke them
with this eclectic lineup
and came out on top.

Male Musings on love, roMance, and dating
Kenny Luck | Special to the Weekender
Reclaiming masculinity
Tobeamanmeans some-
thing different these days
than what it has meant in
the past. Modern dudes
have risen from the pop
culture gutter, leaving us
with nothing of substance
to worship. The 1970s
Burt Reynolds macho-
ism has disappeared,
replaced, I fear, by less
authentic, less interesting
Jersey Shore clones that
inhabit every bar across
America. (Can you really
imagine The Situation
kicking ass and saving the
day the way Reynolds did
in Deliverance?)
Novelist Ernest
Hemingways adventures
in war and love are legend-
ary. Hemingway, in my
opinion, is manliness made
real. For example, after
he survived a plane crash
in Africa, Hemingway
was said to pour alcohol
into his fractured skull to
keep infection at bay. And
apart from his involve-
ment in WWI and WWII
and the Spanish Civil War,
Hemingway, or Papa, as
he was known, was world-
ly. He was an adventurer,
traveler, and writer, a com-
bination of traits that are
rare these days.
In his heyday, actor/
director Sylvester
Stallone created charac-
ters such as Rocky Balboa
and John Rambo that
had muscle and heart.
Rambos shirtless Arghs!
and Balboas face-offs
are classic moments in
American cinema that typ-
ify what it means, in part,
to be a man.
The philosopher
Friedrich Nietzsche
may be best known for
declaring God is dead,
but the German thinker
also had other ideas, like
his Will to Power and
bermensch, or The
Superman, concepts.
In a BBC documentary
about Nietzsche, one per-
son described him as the
rst punk philosopher,
imagining the thinker rais-
ing his middle nger to
the larger establishment.
Nietzsche is important
because he challenges us
to rise above ourselves,
becoming something bet-
ter.
Come di a n/di re c t or
Woody Allen, the nerdy
hero of pop culture,
although not at all manly,
uses his intellectual and
comedic powers to rede-
ne masculinity. Allens
classic movie Annie Hall
is one of my all-time favor-
ites, and Allen deserves
credit for showing how
nerds can be cool.
And President
Theodore Roosevelt, a
politician and hard-riding
Rough Rider, was a man of
intrigue and fought in the
United States war against
Spain just a few years
before becoming presi-
dent. Rather than fade into
retirement, Roosevelt,
who was athletic and an
intellectual, after losing
the bid for president in
1912, put together a team
to explore the River of
Doubt in South America,
an expedition that nearly
killed him.
If men are to progress, a
new model for masculinity
is needed.
Using the above arche-
types, think nerd/intel-
lectual meets rugged
outdoorsman. Rather
than this, what we have
is a disgrace, an insult to
manhood. The douche-
bag model of masculinity
the beer-guzzling, NFL-
obsessed car enthusiast
which is so widespread
nowadays, wont cut it. As
Nietzsche Im sure would
agree, culture needs an
uberman, someone to
save us from the douche
state that persists.
In the dating world,
women have to demand a
better kind of guy, a qual-
ity guy, and thats what
they will get.

Fitness tips & tricks
Tim Hlivia | Special to the Weekender
12 tips for a
better workout
A great tip is an awe-
some thing, whether
its great tailor or an
undiscovered restaurant.
Unfortunately, few things
in life are sure things. But,
with an expanded knowl-
edge base, you cant miss.
And the secrets to success
are all based on knowl-
edge.
Use these 12 tips to fuel
your results:
1. Your abs are like any
other muscle work them
and give them rest. Train
them two to three times
per week.
2. Stay loose. Stretching
is like ossing; we all
know it is important,
but we dont do it often
enough. As you age, hold
your stretches longer.
Rule of thumb: stretch
half the time you exercise
per week. So, if you work-
out three hours per week,
stretch for at least 90 min-
utes per week.
3. Time saver: shorter,
more intense workouts
are usually better than
long, drawn-out sessions.
This keeps cortisol
levels down, which is a
stress hormone.
4. Order in the gym.
When doing various
pieces of equipment in
the same workout, choose
dumbbells rst, then bar-
bells, and do machines
last. Also, work larger
muscles before smaller
ones.
5. Got milk? Drinking a
pint of low fat chocolate
milk can have the same
effect as expensive supple-
ments after your workout.
6. Skip your favorites.
Youre cutting yourself
short if you only do exer-
cises you like. Work on
your weakest links. This
will ramp up your results.
7. Rest as needed. No
need for timed workout
periods. Resting only as
needed is one way to save
time in the gym.
8. More in less time. As
you progress in the gym,
try to do more work in
the same amount of time.
This will ensure progress.
9. Stay off the DL. Cut
your running time in half
every four to ve weeks.
This will allow your body
to recover adequately.
10. Keep your head up.
When sprinting up hills,
keep you head up. This
will allow your lungs to
expand properly.
11. Apply physiology.
Lifting weights with your
legs will decrease your
running time. A study in
the Journal of Applied
Physiology found that
eight weeks of resistance
training improved experi-
enced runners 5K times
by 30 seconds.
12. New Year, new you.
If your resolution this
year includes getting into
shape, dont wait until
January. Start exercis-
ing twice a week now. By
January, youll be ready
for the ve-day-a-week
commitment that you set
out to do.

Imperial liner
Eyeliner has been a sta-
ple in makeup ever since
ancient Egyptian times.
Back then makeup played
a crucial role in ones exis-
tence, and even in the
afterlife. Liner had become
part of a ritual and it was
believed that it could bring
ones soul closer to the god
once deceased. Eyeliner
was a must-have both for
women and men alike, not
only for beauty but also
to deect light (like how
football players wear black
paint on their cheeks) and
for antibacterial purposes.
It wasnt until the 1920s
that women began to
express themselves in a
more abstract, feminine
and glamorous light that
eyeliner became more
popular. Today, liners have
advanced so greatly, with
the invention of water-
proof smudge-proof formu-
las, liquid or pencil, and an
overabundance of colors to
choose from.
Some of my favorite lin-
ers include: Stila Stay All
Day water-proof liquid liner
in black and cobalt (for
those with super light crys-
tal blue eyes); Tarte Light
Camera Lashes inner rim
brightener liner in nude, to
help open up the eye and
help conceal any redness,
giving a well-rested appear-
ance; Too Faced three-way
lash lining tool, which has a
three-prong felt tip that you
can sweep across the lid for
your traditional black liquid
liner look or you can press
along your lash line, leaving
a trail of dots that give the
appearance of fuller lashes.
You can also tight line with
this product, which means
taking the liner and run-
ning it under your lashes
on your upper lid, creating
the look of fuller lashes and
a more eye-dening effect.
A great way to utilize
liner every day is to nd a
sheer wash of eye shadow
color that compliments
your iris, then follow with
a colored liner that also
compliments your eye
color. Remember to apply
the liner in a way to maxi-
mize your eye shape and
really help to create the
perfect almond shape; its
the most attering of eye
shapes and gives people
that dreamy, sultry, more
attractive quality.

Makeup tips and tricks Made easy

Tip: Followthe eye liner
chart to help fnd the best
way to apply your liner to best
suit your eye shape and help
get you to the perfect almond
shape.
Trick: 90 percent of eye
shadows can be used wet
or dry. take a little eye drop
solution on a fne tip or angled
brush and swipe across your
favorite shadowfor a long-

Diesel delivers on promises to franchise fans
Spurred on by his 46 mil-
lion Facebook followers, Vin
Diesel was determined to
get Riddick made.
Even though hes enjoyed
plenty of success anchoring
The Fast and the Furious
franchise, the actor felt com-
pelled to deliver a conclusion
to the trilogy of sci- movies
he began back in 2000 with
Pitch Black.
A big stumbling block
was the disappointing recep-
tion of second installment,
Chronicles of Riddick,
which cost a whopping $100
million to make and earned
just $57 million at the U.S.
box ofce. After the lm
didnt perform as expected,
Universal pulled the plug on
the threequel.
But Diesel wasnt about
to see one of his favorite
characters go down without
a ght. The actor, who also
serves as a producer on the
icks, bought back the rights
from Universal and began a
campaign to get Riddick
before the cameras.
In an attempt to raise
money, Diesel went so far as
to leverage his house. And,
he says, hed do it again in
order to bring the story of
the gravelly-voiced anti-hero
to the screen.
I was committed to
answering this growing
request from the social
media fans to continue this
character, and the only way
that I could pull it off was by
leveraging everything, says
the actor, who collaborated
on the trilogy with writer/
director David Twohy.
It was tricky because it
wasnt like being the produc-
er of Fast and Furious. This
was being the producer of
something where if it didnt
work, I would have lost my
house. So everything that I
had in my life was leveraged
to make this movie.
Now in theaters courtesy
of Universal, which is dis-
tributing the independently
made ick, Riddick begins
with the titular ex-con being
left for dead on a planet that
appears to be devoid of life.
Before too long, though,
Riddick nds himself bat-
tling a host of scary crea-
tures.
After activating an emer-
gency beacon, Riddick is
also forced to take on a hand-
ful of bounty hunters, includ-
ing Katee Sackhoff (TVs
Battlestar Galactica) and
Bokeem Woodbine.
Diesel was fresh off his
supporting turn in Saving
Private Ryan when he
starred in Pitch Black, a
scruffy sci- actioner that
cost about $20 million to
make and went on to dou-
ble that at the box ofce.
The PG-13-rated sequel
Chronicles of Riddick was
bigger, more bloated, and
less visceral.
With Riddick, Twohy
and Diesel opted to return to
their roots with an R-rated
lm that aims to recapture,
in the actors words, the
rough, rugged, and raw
spirit of Pitch Black.
I went to Europe to a
lm market and presented
what Riddick was going to
be and got foreign money to
start the movie and to be the
bulk of the nancing, says
the actor, 46.
Then it was up to us to
take those somewhat lim-
ited means, especially in
comparison to what we had
on Chronicles, and to tell a
story Thank God the audi-
ence wanted an R-rated lm
because it justied in some
ways taking that more inde-
pendent route.
Riddick has been ges-
tating for so long that there
was talk of Diesel shooting
it back in 2010, before he
made Fast Five. But, in the
end, he opted to wait until
the timing was right in his
personal life.
When I learned that [girl-
friend Paloma Jimenez] was
expecting a child, I didnt
think it would be fair to the
child or the fans to go to that
dark place while welcom-
ing a life into the worldso
Riddick waited until after I
did the more family-centric
Fast Five.
Diesel says playing
Riddick takes a piece out of
him.
It is a dark place to go
to play Riddick, says the
actor, a father of two. Its
very rewarding to make the
movie and be in the movie,
but playing the character is
sometimes a lot more dif-
cult than other characters
because it takes so much
preparation to get into it.
For this version, with
where Riddick is now and
his state of mind, I went to
the woods for four months
and prepared by basically
being a recluse. Thats how
I prepared the inner-core of
this character.
A native of New York,
Diesel (who was born Mark
Sinclair) began his lm
career with his short lm
Multi-Facial, which made
its debut at the Cannes
Film Festival in 1995. Two
years later, Diesel wrote,
directed, and produced
Strays, which premiered at
Sundance.
Diesels early lms were
good enough to impress
Steven Spielberg, who cast
the actor in Saving Private
Ryan (1998). Roles in a
handful of diverse movies,
including Pitch Black,
Boiler Room, XXX, The
Pacier, and Find Me
Guilty, followed.
A former bouncer who
prides himself on his knowl-
edge of social media, Diesel
is the primary reason why
the Fast and Furious fran-
chise never seems to run out
of gas. Given the $787 mil-
lion-grossing success of this
summers Fast and Furious
6, its no surprise that the
seventh installment will
begin shooting this autumn
and open in theaters next
summer.
The thought of listening
to an audience was unheard
of ve years ago, says the
actor, who is also scheduled
to voice Groot in Marvels
Guardians of the Galaxy.
But if Clark Gable had a
Facebook page, there would
have been a Gone with the
Wind 2.
Now that Diesel has com-
pleted Riddick, hes turned
his attention to another long-
in-the-works dream project.
Hannibal the Conqueror
is the rst in a proposed
trilogy of lms about the
Carthaginian military com-
mander which Diesel has
been vowing to make for the
last decade or so.
I do feel like I answered
the request from the fans
to please make another
Riddick. It was one of the
three promises that I either
made or people assumed
that I made on the social
media network.
One of them was [to
bring back] Letty [played by
Michelle Rodriguez] to the
Fast and Furious franchise.
That was something people
were so vocal about four and
a half years ago.
The second was the
resurrection of Riddick
and the re-awakening of
that mythology. And the
third will be [mounting]
Hannibal the Conqueror.
Thats one promise I havent
delivered on yet. But I will.
W
Actor Vin Diesel leveraged his own home to independently finance Riddick and bring the fan-favorite
character to the big screen once again.

SnipStamp reaches new
heights with #spacewalk
Weve all had such a conversation on
the weekend.
What bar are you at?
Well, whos there?
Where are you going if you leave
there?
Can I get a ride home?
Thankfully, social networking app
SnipStamp, dubbed the Happy Hour of
Social Networking, has made nding
the answers to these questions so much
easier.
Its a check-in service, like FourSquare
or Facebook, but instead of seeing where
your friends have checked in in the past,
we show you everything in real-time so
you can see where theyre at right now,
said SnipStamp CEO Gerard Durling.
The app, available on both the Google
Play and iPhone app stores, allows users
to see not only the check-ins of their
friends, but also the most populated
spots in the area, based on overall check-
ins, by friends or not, so you know just
where the party is at.
There is also a way to see events and
happy hours going on at each bar and a
designated driver feature.
If youre not drinking but going out
and you want your friends to know
that in the event they need a ride home
because they cant drive, theres a way for
them to reach you, Durling noted
Durling said the app has grown in pop-
ularity locally, but the company is ready
to expand outside the area hence the
astronauts you may have seen walking
about in recent weeks.
On Sept. 21, SnipStamp will host
#Spacewalk2013, Mission: Launch,
a bar crawl marking the app launching
nationwide. That night, SnipStamp cre-
ators Durling and Jeremy Romani, along
with other staff members, will be setting
their status to Designated Driver and
providing transportation home to any
participants feeling incapable of driving.
The obvious accessory to such an event
would be something space-themed, but
SnipStamp took it to a whole new level.
We walked around college campus-
es, downtown by Joe Ks Brewhouse,
Rodanos, downtown Scranton, Durling
said. We were encouraging people to
take photos and use the hashtag #space-
walk, and we had a lot of response.
Walk might not be the actual way
to describe the fully-dressed astronauts
that have been traipsing around. Those
suited up have been getting around in
slow motion, as though they actually are
walking on the moon. To catch a glimpse
of them prior to the bar crawl, search
#spacewalk on Instagram, Facebook, or
Twitter.
The bar crawl will visit six loca-
tions throughout the night, with
some perks added in. Susquehanna
Brewing Company and Northeast Eagle
Distributers are pitching in to give free
beer to those who check in at each loca-
tion. The night will end at King of Kings
Gyro on Public Square, and those who
have checked in at every location via
SnipStamp will receive a free gyro.

The Kings College football game was just one of the many stops the SnipStamp astronauts made
in the past few weeks.

Hobo you didnt
A weird name, yes. A bril-
liant idea? Um, hell yes.
A hobo dinner: the perfect
I-dont-have-a-lot-of-time or
hey-were-going-camping meal.
There are a number of ways
to make this tinfoil-wrapped
delicacy; the possiblities are
pretty much endless, but Ill
share some of my favorites with
you.
You can throw these on a
grill or in an oven, depending
on where youre at and what
you prefer. Its pretty much just
tossing ingredients into tin
foil, sealing it up, and letting it
cook.

AnchorBrewingCompany
has long been on the radar
for craft beer drinkers, main-
ly because they were one of
the rst true craft breweries
of this new revival. In 1965,
Fritz Maytag, scion of the
washing-machine company,
purchased the edgling
Anchor Brewery for what he
later described as less than
the price of a used car. He
came to know the company
through the fantastic steam
beer they were brewing at
the time; the only problem
was that not many other
people were enjoying this
beer and the company was
going out of business - until
Maytag stepped in and
saved it.
The rst step Fritz took
was reevaluating the recipe
for Anchor Steam Beer and
changing it to all-barley malt
instead of the cheaper corn
syrup it was using at the
time. Reviving this old style
that was popular during the
gold rush in California was
not an easy task, but Maytag
was up for it, and the venture
proved to be very successful.
He soon moved on to reviv-
ing other styles of beer with
an equal amount of gusto
and success.
In 1974, Anchor bottled
its rst porter. The porter
style comes from England,
but in 1974 no English brew-
eries were even making such
a style of beer. SoonAnchors
porter caught on, as did the
style, and, with good reason,
Anchors porter is a standard
for the style. However, Fritz
Maytag did not simply rest
on his laurels.
Soon the brewery was
beginning to revive and
invent other styles of beer,
such as the American IPA.
In 1975, Maytag set out to
create a uniquely American
beer to celebrate the 200th
anniversary of Paul Reveres
ride to warn against the
impending British attack.
The resulting beer was the
groundbreaking Anchor
Liberty Ale. The beer used
the newly developed cas-
cade hop in abundance and
became so popular that in
1983 it entered into perma-
nent rotation for the brew-
ery.
Also, in 1975, Anchor
debuted its rst Anchor
Christmas Ale, a delicious
brown ale whose magnum
bottles have become a yearly
collecting tradition for many
fans ever since. As if that
was not enough, in 1975
the brewery began selling
Old Foghorn, the rst barley
wine-style ale to be brewed
in America in modern times.
Not too bad for a brewery
that was on the verge of com-
plete collapse just a decade
earlier.
The brewery has con-
tinued to grow in popular-
ity over the years and many
modern breweries credit
Anchor Brewing Company
with the inspiration to enter
the craft beer market. Many
brewers rst introduction to
craft beer were beers being
brewed by Anchor.
With the pedigree of beers
that Anchor has created over
time, it could simply create
the same delicious beers and
not produce any new ones.
However, thankfully for us,
Anchor has not done this,
and over the past few years,
the brewery has actually
released several new, and
delicious, beers.
In 2010, they released
Humming Ale, an American
pale ale that featured the
recently discovered Nelson
Sauvin hop that gives the
beer a dry citrus, almost
white wine-like quality. In
2011, they released Brekles
Brown, an absolutely stun-
ning American brown ale.
This year alone, they created
another two fantastic beers:
Anchor California Lager, a
crisp smooth easy drinking
lager, and BigLeaf Maple
Autumn Amber, a delectable
red ale.
While America may be
relatively new to the beer
world when compared to
world history, we have cer-
tainly brought some amaz-
ing styles and avors to the
market, with a lot of thanks
going to Anchor Brewing
Company and Fritz Maytag.
Certainly, within the craft
beer world, and hopefully
within the general world of
beer, Anchor will always be
remembered as a brewery
that pushed boundaries and
made better beer for all of us
to enjoy.

BEER REVIEWS
Derek Warren | Weekender Correspondent
BigLeaf = big favor
Beer: BigLeaf Maple
Autumn Amber
Brewer: Anchor
Brewing Company
Style: American
Amber/Red Ale
ABV: 6.00%
Brief background:
This is the rst year that
Anchor has produced
BigLeaf Maple Autumn
Amber. The brewery has
created some new and
wonderful beers over the
past few years, and this is
no exception.
Description: Anchors
BigLeaf pours a deep red-
dish amber color with a
frothy white head that
disappears quickly, but
leaves a delicate lacing on
the glass. The aroma is
extremely pleasing to the
nose with scents of sweet
maple, caramel, a slight
nuttiness, and earthy cit-
rus hops underneath it
all. Thankfully, the taste
follows suit with the nose
and the palate is rst hit
with earthy and citrus
hops before being washed
over with a maple and tof-
fee sweetness that instant-
ly makes one think of fall
evenings, and nishes
long and dry with a maple
sweetness lingering on
the taste buds. The body
of this beer falls some-
where between light and
medium, giving it a very
session-beer quality. The
carbonation is impeccable
for the style: enough to
cleanse the palate but still
leave a lingering sticki-
ness of the wonderful a-
vors. BigLeaf is another
absolutely wonderful beer
from Anchor Brewing
Company and the perfect
new addition to my fall
seasonal lineup of beers.
Food pairing: Amber
ales traditionally go well
with a wide variety of
meat dishes and BigLeaf
is no exception; however,
the strong maple avors
can make for even more
interesting food combi-
nations. For an interest-
ing mixture, try starting
a lazy weekend morning
off with maple pecan pan-
cakes, bacon, and a glass
of BigLeaf.
If you are looking to do
your drinking a bit later
in the day, try pairing this
beer with a hearty bacon-
wrapped shrimp dinner
with smoky barbeque
sauce for a true delight.
BigLeaf also holds its own
when matched up with
desserts, especially those
we associate with the
fall season. To really end
your day on a high note,
try having a slice of cinna-
mon apple pie and a side
of vanilla bean ice cream
with BigLeaf and enjoy all
the wonderful avors that
the autumn season has to
offer in one sitting.
Is it worth trying?
Of course it is! Anchor
Brewing Company con-
sistently brews fantastic
beers, and BigLeaf is no
exception. While I do love
pumpkin and Oktoberfest
beers this time of year,
it seems that there is an
overabundance of them
with more breweries mak-
ing new ones each year.
Its very refreshing to see
a brewery bring a new fall
seasonal beer to market
that is not following suit
with what has already
been done many times;
not to mention, BigLeaf
is delicious. Be sure to
add this beer to your fall
seasonal arsenal and enjoy
the impending fall weath-
er!

Realismexhibit expands
Realism: the general
attempt to depict things
accurately, from either
a visual, social, or emo-
tional perspective.
See also: Misericordia
Universitys latest exhib-
it, one packed with the
works of talented local
artists capturing just
that.
Capturing Realism
2013 is a biennial exhib-
it for the Pauly Friedman
Art Gallery at the college,
one that showcases works
from the studios of Ani
Art Academies Waichulis
atelier, Bear Creek
Twp., Pa.; the Ani Art
Academies Anguilla, on
the Caribbean island of
Anguilla; and the Ani Art
Academies Dominicana,
on the island of the
Dominican Republic.
The exhibit began com-
ing to the school in 1998
and has grown immensely
since.
When we held our
first exhibit in 1998, we
only had a small group
of artists, and we eas-
ily fit into the space at
Misericordia, explained
acclaimed modern mas-
ter Anthony Waichulis
in a press release. Now
that we have over 20 art-
ists in each of the three
schools around the globe,
we decided to make this
a juried show and select
the items for exhibit so to
provide the most rich and
diverse representation of
the work being done at all
three academies.
Waichulis hails from
Nanticoke and has an
international reputation
for his Trompe Loeil
paintings. He founded
The Waichulis Studio in
1997, which merged with
the newly-formed Ani
Art Academies in 2010.
The Ani Art Academy
Waichulis was established
and was joined by the Ani
Art Academies Anguilla
in 2012 and Ani Art
Academies Dominicana
in 2013. Academies are
expected to open soon in
Thailand and Sri Lanka.

Dallas Harvest Festival fosters
sense of community
If your children love ani-
mals, theyll likely enjoy
meeting ducks, rabbits, a
potbelly pig, and adoptable
dogs on Sunday at the Dallas
Harvest Festival, where the
petting zoo can be educa-
tional as well as fun.
Last year, one of the
chicken even laid an egg
in front of the kids, said
Marge Bart from Blue Chip
Farm Animal Refuge, who
plans to bring all of the afore-
mentioned creatures, and
possibly some goats.
It gives kids a chance to
see animals they might not
see anywhere else.
Other festival activities
include an open-mic talent
contest, a farmers market,
a competition of oral dis-
plays, the chance to ride an
old-fashioned re truck, and
the opportunity to watch a
different theatrical skit every
hour on the hour.
They all have twists,
said Christina Metz, direc-
tor of Take the Stage
Players. One is the story
of Rumpelstiltskin. It kind
of gives the back story as to
why Rumpelstiltskin wants
the child of the girl that he
helped by turning straw
into gold, telling it from his
perspective rather than the
girls.
Another one is Jack and
the Beanstalk told from the
giants point of view. There
are three giants, and they
kind of have a misunder-
standing.
Weve tried to tie some
of the shows to the fes-
tival theme, Year of the
Volunteer, Metz added.
Inkeeping withthe theme,
festival spokeswoman Liz
Martin said, festival-goers
will be able to vote for their
favorite charity. (The mon-
etary votes will be added to
those previously collected at
various Back Mountain busi-
nesses and the Dallas and
Dallas Township municipal
buildings.)
Every penny goes to the
charity in whose name the
vote was cast, Martin said,
adding that the top vote-get-
ter will receive an additional
$1,000 courtesy of Frontier
Communications and the
Dallas Harvest Festival.
Participating charities
include the Back Mountain
Trail; BlueChipFarmAnimal
Refuge; Dallas High School
Mini-Thon, which raises
money for children with
cancer; the Back Mountain
Memorial Library; and the
First Lt. Michael J. Cleary
Scholarship Fund.
Festival visitors also are
invited to bring non-per-
ishable food items to the
Friends Feeding Friends
tent. Along with food previ-
ously collected at Thomas
Markets and by students at
four local schools, it will be
taken to the Back Mountain
Food Pantry.
The festival gives every-
body a sense of community,
Martin said. Its a giant
street fair. People come to
socialize and visit our many
vendors and eat some won-
derful food.
For those interested in
performing in the open-
mic competition, the pre-
liminary competition takes
place Friday at 6 p.m. in the
George M. Dallas Masonic
Lodge, next to Dallas
Hardware on Main Street.
Sign-up is 5:30 p.m.

Local, natural
wedding favors
If you didnt already
know, Im getting married
soon in one week to be
exact. I had a lot of fun
planning the wedding. I
also had a few freak-outs.
But as the planning is com-
ing to an end and the actual
day is right around the cor-
ner, I couldnt be happier.
The major decisions like
the venue, food, and music
were all really easy for me.
It was the little details that
had me stuck. I was back
and forth on what to do for
favors. In the end, we decid-
ed to have a photo booth
which would also serve as
favors for everyone. It was
something we really want-
ed and something we think
everyone will enjoy.
Before we decided on
having a photo booth, we
had a few other ideas for
favors that I really loved.
In the end, I wish I could
have it all, but lets be real-
istic! A local soaperie in
Scranton was one place I
had in mind for favors. The
Fanciful Fox is a great spot
if youre looking for wed-
ding or shower favors, or
even just a great gift.
What caught my eye
right away was that they
are 100 percent dedicated
to cruelty-free standards
and sell vegan products.
Its tough to nd 100 per-
cent cruelty-free anything,
so right off the bat, the
Fanciful Fox proves they
are passionate about vegan
standards. Products made
at the Fanciful Fox are com-
pletely plant-based. Ran by
a mother/daughter team,
the Fanciful Fox has been
making soap since 2004.
They even were a PETA
Compassionate Business
award recipient in 2009!
Originally, I had thought
of purchasing a bulk order
of small soaps as favors.
I loved the idea, and still
do! Not only will you nd
soap at the Fanciful Fox,
youll nd a wide variety
of products including bar
soaps, hair care, baby care,
tattoo care, and even pet
products.
The Beekeepers
Daughter is another local
business that offers great
products to use as wed-
ding favors. Based out of
Dallas, Pa., the Beekeepers
Daughter is a fourth gen-
eration family of beekeep-
ers. The family rst started
harvesting honey from
hives back in the 1800s!
The family also migrates
the bees from Pennsylvania
to Arcadia, Fla., in order to
keep the bees in shape dur-
ing the winter.
We planned on having
small jars of honey as favors,
which we think everyone
would have loved. These
guys can t any budget and
do 2 oz. plastic bears to 4
oz. vintage jars dipped in
beeswax. You can nd the
Beekeepers Daughter at
the Wilkes-Barre Farmers
Market, Hillside Farms,
Star Bakery, and at the
Back Mountain Memorial
Library Farmers Market. A
variety of different avors
of honey are also available,
including orange blossom,
palmetto, Brazilian pepper,
wildower, and goldenrod.

Its football season
again, which means its
also Madden season.
This years edition is
special because its the
25th anniversary of the
series. Madden NFL 25
is the rst time since the
series start that they have
changed their naming
convention. Last years
edition was Madden 13.
However, aside from some
trivia and fancy covers
and graphics, that was the
extent of the celebration.
You would think for such
a milestone they would
have a bit more fanfare;
instead, they made just
made a couple of minor
upgrades and gave it a
fancy name.
Madden 25 is not
a drastic departure for
the series; it is largely
the same, but there have
been some upgrades that
make it better then last
years edition. Most of
the changes are not all
that noticeable. The first
real difference is the phys-
ics engine; it makes all
the tackles look and feel
more realistic then ever.
In past games, sometimes
the tackling and move-
ment animations were
goofy, and they seem to
have fixed that. Most of
the character movement
has also been improved;
spins, dives, and dodges
feel much more fluid, mak-
ing players like running
backs feel like the super-
star athletes that they
are. In fact, a new addi-
tion to the gameplay is
the Precision Modifier,
which can really improve
some skills, such as run-
ning and jumping, for
some superstar players.
Most of the gameplay
modes from Madden
13 are back and better
then ever. The Connected
Careers mode from the
last season has been
expanded to include a
new mode called Owner
Mode. In Owner Mode,
you are now in control
of not only the team and
the coach, but also the
teams staff, trainers,
finances, and stadium.
It feels very tedious for
someone who is not really
a sports fan, but if you are
diehard Madden fanatic,
the level of control is sim-
ply extraordinary. You
can control pretty much
everything, including hot
dog prices, jerseys, and
just about anything else
you can imagine. The
coach and owner modes
are pretty novel, and they
are very well done for
what they are trying to
accomplish. These things
arent really for me I
play for the football, and
what better way to play
than with the returning
Ultimate Team mode.
This mode is similar to
playing fantasy football;
its an online season where
you can trade players and
increase your team chem-
istry, which helps to raise
stats to make your perfect
team.
For the most part,
Madden 25 feels just
like watching a real game
on television, with a few
minor flaws. The com-
mentary is very repeti-
tive, there are a lot of
repeated touchdown
celebrations, and there
are some very noticeable
graphics glitches, such as
fans disappearing. Other
than these minor things,
the gameplay is mostly
stellar.
I played this game on
the PS3, but it will be
coming out for the PS4
and Xbox One at launch,
so the game might actu-
ally be better on the new
generation of consoles.
We will have to wait and
see.
I am not the biggest
sports fan, but I found
Madden 25 to be an
enjoyable experience. If
you are new to the series,
then this is one of most
realistic football games
you might every play. If
you wait in anticipation
for the new Madden
every year, you may be dis-
appointed that there are
no major updates, but you
will like the little tweaks
to the physics, graphics,
and the additional team
controls, which may make
the game worthwhile if
you like that sort of thing.
Overall, I found this game
to be one of the best
sports simulations to ever
be on the market, and it is
worth a look.

SPREADSHEET
PARENTING
Loco Parentis: First-time
mother Amy Webb proudly
notates dozens of data points
about her child each day
and obsessively tracks their
detailed progression by
computer on spreadsheets,
according to the provoca-
tive rst-person account
she wrote for Slate.com in
July. In categories ranging
from ordinary vital signs, to
the kids progress in sound-
making, to dietary reactions,
to quantity and quality of
each poop, stats are kept
24/7 (even with a bedside
laptop to facilitate nighttime
entries). She began track-
ing her own health during
pregnancy, but then decided,
Why stop now? when her
daughter was born. Webbs
pediatrician rated the kids
health as A-minus, but the
parents as C, adding: You
guys need to relax. Leave the
spreadsheets (out). Webb
and her husband remain
condent that their extreme
tracking optimizes their
chances of raising a healthy
daughter.
COMPELLING
EXPLANATIONS
Dr. Timothy Sweo said
later that he was only trying
to make his diagnosis of lum-
bar lordosis less technical
for patient Terry Ragland
when he described her condi-
tion as ghetto booty. The
shape of her spine makes
her buttocks stick out more,
he said, and he prescribed
pain medication as there is
no cure, per se. Nonetheless,
Ragland felt insulted and
led a complaint against Dr.
Sweo with the Tennessee
Department of Health in July.
Said she, I couldnt believe
he said that.
An Anglican parishio-
ner complained in August
about the blasphemous
bumper sticker she saw
on the car of Rev. Alice
Goodman of Cambridge,
England, but Rev. Goodman
immediately defended it as
not irreligious (although,
she conceded, perhaps
vulgar). The sticker read
WTFWJD? which is a play
on the popular evangelical
Christian slogan WWJD?
What Would Jesus Do?
(WTF is a vulgar but
omnipresent acronym on the
Internet.) Rev. Goodman
pointed out that even Dr.
Rowan Williams, the former
Archbishop of Canterbury,
seemed not to be shocked by
her sticker when he saw it.
The wife of Valentino
Ianetti was found dead in
Stanhope, N.J., in 2010 with
47 stab wounds, leading
police to immediately sus-
pect her husband, who was
at home with her. However,
after three years incarcera-
tion, Ianetti, 63, won release
in August by nally convinc-
ing prosecutors that his wife
actually committed suicide.
Although the case is still
ofcially under investiga-
tion, the medical examiner
concluded that 46 of the
wounds were supercial
- - hesitation cuts perhaps
self-inicted as the wife built
up the courage to administer
a nal thrust. Also, the wife
was found with a heavy dose
of oxycodone in her system
and likely felt little pain from
any of the 47 wounds.
IRONIES
Germanys center-left
Social Democrats posted
about 8,000 campaign plac-
ards in July that it proudly
hailed as eco-friendly and
biodegradable to attract the
support of environment-
concerned voters. However,
48 hours later, at the rst
rainfall, the posters became
waterlogged and, indeed,
biodegraded. Reported
Hamburgs Spiegel Online,
None of the campaign
workers could have guessed
how quickly the environ-
mentally friendly process
would begin.
Actually, Thats Why
Shes in Trouble: In August,
a federal judge in Seattle
sentenced Alicia Cruz, 31,
to four years in prison for
violating court-ordered drug
treatment stemming from a
2011 conviction for stealing
the identities of more than
300 people. Cruz had won a
second chance (drug treat-
ment, instead of prison) by
convincing the judge that she
was no longer a crook that
this time, she would abandon
her identity-theft life and go
straight. Added Cruz, Im a
different person now.
James Sonny
McCullough, the mayor of
the New Jersey shore town
of Egg Harbor (pop. 4,240),
announced in August that
he was selling his waterfront
home because real estate
taxes were too high (more
than $31,000 a year) follow-
ing a recent re-assessment
and that he could no longer
afford it. The mayor, 71,
told The Press of Atlantic
City that he had planned
to live the rest of his life in
the home, but was not even
certain he could afford to live
anywhere in Egg Harbor.
LEAST COMPETENT
CRIMINALS
Recurring Themes:
(1.) Vade Bradley, 39, was
arrested on arson charges in
Hayward, Calif., in August
after burning down an apart-
ment house carport, totally
destroying six vehicles. He
was siphoning other peoples
gasoline in the carport
when he decided to light
a cigarette. (2.) Richard
Boudreaux was charged in
January with burglarizing
Kenneys Seafood (where he
previously worked) in Slidell,
La., when he became the
most recent perp to fail to
outank surveillance cam-
eras. He had thought to wear
a bucket over his head as he
moved through the store
except he had waited until
well inside (within camera
range) before actually putting
it on. W
FINE POINTS OF THE LAW
no Profling, Please: Inaugust, minutes before a
scheduled mixed martial arts fght in Immokalee, Fla., the
Florida department of business &Professional regulation
canceled it asunsanctioned.Contestant garrett
Holeve, 23, who has down syndrome, was to fght david
stefn, 28, who has cerebral palsy, and both had trained
intensively for eight weeks and were outraged by the
decision. said Holeves father of his sons reaction, (t)hat
hurts his feelings and angers him.their decision is pretty
arbitrary (and) discriminatory.
Dancing on empty
From my experience,
the wildest moments in
life often take place when
one least expects it. That
certainly was the case a
few weekends ago at the
bar.
It was an early Friday
evening, roughly 7:30
p.m., when I was sitting
in a bar occupied by just
me, my two buddies, and
the bartender. We were
looking forward to a chill
night with good conver-
sation, heavy pours, and
rock ballads to slur along
to from the over-priced
jukebox (One freaking
dollar for a song these
days?!).
Suddenly, a woman
entered the bar.
I ran out of gas in
the parking lot, and Im
broke! laughed a heavy-
set woman with missing
teeth and, even worse, a
New Jersey accent.
Aw man, that sucks!
replied the bartender.
Do you have anyone
coming to help you?
Nope, she answered,
before the bartender
walked away with his
head down, hoping she
gave a different response.
She just stood at the
bar, solitarily.
A moment later, after
being dismissed by my
buddies and I, she belted
an elongated, power-
ful sigh, before adding:
Even one dollar in gas
would be enough for me
to get home if I shifted
my car in neutral, and
just rolled down the hill
to the nearest gas sta-
tion, I guess.
I started to feel bad for
the woman.
Ill give you gas
money, I shouted.
Really? she asked.
Really! I confirmed.
However, you will have
to earn it.
I told her that if she
wanted gas money she
had to dance for it, and
I had to pick the song.
When the woman told me
that she couldnt dance,
but shed try, I added
that the entire dance had
to be filmed. To some,
it might sound like I
was taking advantage of
this poor woman, but I
preferred to look at it as
my chance to go viral on
YouTube.
By the time the sec-
ond chorus of Fk the
Pain Away by Peaches
kicked in, it appeared
she was getting way too
into her performance,
as she started unbutton-
ing her shirt, revealed
her leopard-printed bra,
and smothered me in
the sweatiest motorboat
I have ever been a part
of that was captured on
camera.
When her performance
was interrupted by a
homeless man that came
inside selling iPhone 4s
in a plastic bag, I escaped
to the bathroom, where
I rinsed my face with
cool water to calm down
from everything that was
going on.
When I left the bath-
room, I found the lady
that danced her dig-
nity away go from Miley
Cyrus at the VMAs to
Madonna of the Streets
from the Bible, now wip-
ing blood from the face of
a man that just came in
from getting into a fight
down the street.
She made a friend,
explained the bartender.
The woman wound up
going home with him 20
minutes later. I sat at the
bar, realizing that just
when it seems your night
will be trite, if you take
time to help a stranger,
it can go from running
on empty to dancing on
empty!
W
A little money - or a lot of dance moves - can go a long way when one runs out of gas.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Youre sweet, always there for people,
constantly cheerful, good company.
Theres little I can offer you in the way
of advice, but if I had to come up with
one thing: youre too independent. Youre
so self-sufcient that you dont give
those who long to get closer to you any
openings to be there for you. Im not
saying you should go all soft and weak
and needy. But you could move a half-
step in that direction. Receptivity and
vulnerability are this weeks keywords.
Sometimes getting is more important
than giving, and since many folks you
know are all too eager to give to you,
why not offer them the chance?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
What youre trying to do now is the
equivalent of wearing vertical stripes
to hide the ten pounds youve gained. It
might work for a little while, in dim light-
ing, but its no long-term solution. You
have a couple healthy ways to deal with
this: Accept the new weight youve put
on. Its only ten pounds. Or work out like
crazy and take it back off. It shouldnt
take more than a month or three, if youre
determined. Its only ten pounds. But
you have to acknowledge the difculty,
not ignore it or hide it. While your prob-
lem probably has nothing to do with your
actual weight, you get the parallel Im
alluding to. Figure out what youre going
to do with this spiritual spare tirenow.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You may have to sing for your supper
this week, or your sex, or your promotion,
or your role as center of attention, or all of
these things. Luckily, you love being put on
the spot, even while you profess to hating
it, because it gives you a chance to shine.
Imwarningyoubecause youshouldnt pass
up any opportunity to prove yourselfyou
may not get a second. A moment of false
modesty (No, no, I simply couldnt!) will
send the spotlight on to the next person
who simply can and will, and youll have
to do without getting dinner, laid, a raise,
or popularity.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Youre grilled cheese, youre chocolate,
youre the goddamn Beatles. Whether
they particularly like you or not, the
people you encounter have to acknowl-
edge your basicand nearly univer-
salappeal. Those who dont are fooling
themselves, and aggravating me and your
other fans. Still, those caffeine-free, lac-
tose intolerant, rock and roll haters dont
matter much in the grand scheme of your
life. Theres a time and a place to convert
those straddling the fence to the Cult of
You, but this isnt it. For now, graciously
please your loyal followers and politely
ignore your detractors, no matter which
group is more vocal.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Its a good week to meet new people,
but not to get to know them. Thats a
tricky distinction, especially because
the rst impression youre generating
right now is magnetically irresistible.
Unfortunately, behind the surface of
a friendly face-to-face, all your mag-
netic poles are misalignedthings are
bound to get prickly and uncomfortable,
because youll rub your new acquaintanc-
es the wrong way, and vice versa. Its bet-
ter to be glib, charming, and only hint at
the depths you possess, instead of invit-
ing your enchanted potential friends to
plunge in. Save that for next week, when
their rough edges wont catch against
yours.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
I have a friend whose family watches
faith-healing televangelist shows as hilar-
ious comedy. When the preacher jams
his ngers into a terried deaf childs
ears and screams: Laud, take the devil
aht! Make this chah-uld heah! they roll
on the oor and laugh. Can you blame
them? Its good st and way better
than most sitcoms. But its important
to remember that one persons comedy
is anothers serious religion. Enjoy the
hilarity that you see this weekbut do
so discreetly. You dont need them sic-
cing their god on your ass. No smitings
this week, okay?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Youre a thick, epic novel. A glance at
your cover, even a swift perusal of your
rst few chaptersthese will reveal
nothing of your true nature. The only
way to know you is to read you, cover-to-
cover, twice. Unfortunately, some of the
people youre dealing with have picture-
book mentalities. They lack the fortitude
or patience to plumb your depths. Dont
ll in the great wellspring of your soul
just so they dont have to do more than
wade. Drop a bucket into your darkest,
wettest waters, draw up some of that
wisdom and experience, and just dump it
over their sorry heads. At the very least,
itll wake them upand probably make
them respect you, too.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Rams love jumping the gun. Its so
Aries to skip the four-year courtship
your Cancer paramour might prefer and
just pop the big question on your third
date instead. Its one of your best traits:
you know what you want, and you rarely
vacillate long before making a decision.
Its charmingbut also selsh; it forces
all involved to conform to your will. You
might say, Well, if they cant deal with
my style, theyre not the right person for
me, and perhaps thats true. But you
could also see it a different way: Maybe,
just maybe, you might actually enjoy
doing things their way more, if only
youd consider it an option. Then its a
win-win.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
When someone tells you, Youre such
a loser, you laugh. You know its a joke.
Thats a healthy level of self-condence,
something I wish everyone possessed.
But many other signs couldnt hear that
as the teasing humor its meant to be;
they might take it to heart, and worry
that its true. Your goal this week isnt
to censor yourself to be sure you dont
accidentally hurt anyones feelings with
a barbed joke; its to uplift everyone you
knowespecially that someone whos
been feeling low latelyso they can take
whatever you dish out, and then some.
When the gibes start ying back with
smiles, youll know you did your job.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
We both know youre not as supercial
as the stereotypes of your sign suggest.
But your recent behavior makes you
look like the hollow (wo)man, all surface
and no substance. Its not shallowness
that made you say the things you
did; its carelessness and inattention.
Fortunately, these things are easily
remedied, with a little frank realness
and sincere consideration. But dont wait
long, because the legend of your social
misstep is growing by the second, and
spreading faster than a viral video. Dont
drag the rest of your tribe back down
into the clich from which youve so
spectacularly emerged this past year. Fix
your faux pas.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Im feeling particularly melancholic
today. I thought Id commiserate with
the one sign who can most empathize
with my experience, since youre likely
to share it this week. Admit it, though:
theres part of you that gets off on chan-
neling this deep, abiding sadness. Thats
ne; its rich, real, and better than feeling
numb. But push through it, because mel-
ancholy begets itself; By being manifest-
ly miserable you generate more reasons
to be gloomy. Dont suppress itjust
accept it. Acknowledge that life is often
sad, lonely, and constantly heart-break-
ing, and move on. Theres joy to be had,
too, and lucky youyoure alive enough
to feel it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
People may use unfamiliar words to
describe you this week, like comfort-
ing, gentle, and safe. Youre not used to
feeling like a homemade quilt, a puppy,
or a cup of hot cocoa. These edge-less
sources of warmth are generally quite
different than the blaze you usually pro-
videwhich is erce enough to burn as
well as heat things up. But your scorch-
factor is dialed quite low this week. Your
barely-repressed desire to scald and scare
has been subverted into a more passive
wish to just be there for those who need
you. This wont last longbut ending it
wont be your doing. For now, let those
who want it bask in your comfy warmth,
because theyll be demanding you crank
things to more dangerous temperatures
soon enough.
