What new fall TV show
do you think will fail?
Tell @wkdr what new fall show you
think will fail
As I write this letter, I am still coming to grips with the passing of
my grandmother, but one memory I still hold onto fondly was when
we rst bonded.
I moved into her home as a teenager, and one thing she loved was
her television. She would stay up late every night to watch Nick at
Nite and or any other reruns of sitcoms playing at that hour. We both
loved Seinfeld, so we would watch the show together and laugh
about it for weeks afterward it was the one thing we both got
despite our many differences. Thats the power of good entertain-
ment, and this fall, there seems to be plenty of it.
Each member of our staff summarized our picks for the fall season
on pages 28 and 29, which range from comedies to dramas to sci-
tales to horror stories. Its a lot to take in, but thats what DVRs are
for. We didnt have one of those when I watched TV with grandma,
but we both enjoyed staying up late anyway, so we didnt really need
one.
Find your favorite new show in our guide and then get someone
special to watch it with you. TV programming comes and goes, but
the right show can stick with you forever especially with the right
company.

ceeds going to the American Cancer Society.

We are thrilled to host an afternoon of unparalleled selections

artisan cheese and regional foods. - John Culetsu, Executive Vice
President and General Manager of Mount Airy Casino Resort.
Its no secret that The Great
Party is an incredibly unique
band its Ameri-Pop style is
one not often heard (if ever,
outside of the band itself) in
this area. The group, who
has already released a video
for the song Theresa off the
self-titled EP, has put together
quite the spectacle in produc-
ingavideoforanothersongoff
the EP, Hecho En Mexico.
The Great Party, in conjunc-
tion with The Vintage, is host-
ingareleaseshowforthevideo
Sept. 28 at TwentyFiveEight
Studios (703 N. Washington
Ave., Rear, behindCoopers).
There is an aura of dark
humor surrounding the
video, in which band mem-
bers Mike Eastman, Rosaleen
Eastman, Matt Mang, Michael
Nordberg, and Matthew
Thomas suit up in their best
Day of the Deadattire.
TheDayof theDeadisahol-
iday that takes place on Nov. 1
and 2 of mainly Mexican heri-
tagethat focuses ongatherings
of family and friends to pray
for and remember those who
have passed on. Fitting, given
the basis of the song.
The song is about a guy
whos got a thing for a dead
girl, Rosaleen said, before
laughted broke out and her
husbandMike chimedinwith,
Honestly, I didnot evenknow
that until right now.
The groups playfulness and
senseof humor shines through
inthe video.
There is some grave dig-
ging, Mike Eastman said,
but theres also a fun twist.
Were having a traditional
party on a grave site but,
instead, were digging some-
one up.
The shoot took place over
two days in June, directed by
ZacStuart-Pontier, withacrew
coming in from New York. A
bevy of extras helped make up
the party scene.
This project was supported
by a Lackawanna County
Arts And Culture Grant
through the Lackawanna
County Commissioners and
Council On Arts Culture and
Education.
Thereleaseshowwill serves
as a Day of the Dead party all
its own. There will be free
Day of the Dead face paint-
ing, which earns those that
hit up The Bog in Scranton
afterwards an extended happy
hour. Not only will The Great
Party be performing but there
will also be free face painting,
custom crafts from Alchemy
Home Company including a
Sugar Skull scent created just
for theoccasion, foodbyEden-
A-Vegan Cafe, an educational
piece onthe Day Of The Dead
holiday, and an opening set of
music by AFire WithFriends.
The Great Party would like
to thank Stuart-Pontier, David
Jacobsen, John Ferguson, The
Lackawanna County Arts &
Culture Department, Donna
and Matty Thomas, Suzie
Frisch, Beth Thomas, and the
rest of the crew and all the
extras for making the lming
of Hecho En Mexico such a
great experience.
The party will not only be
the rst time local audiences
are being treated to the video,
but alsothe rst time the band
itself will see it infull.
Weve seen about 90 per-
cent up until this time, Mike
Eastman said, before bursting
into laughter. I mean, it can
be an animated feature for all
we know.

Gordon good to go, shy away fromHolmes, and more for Week 4
Another week of football
gone by - how did you fare?
Hopefully, things went well
and, if not, youve got a fresh
start coming up tomorrow
night. Toss em, keep em,
make some tough decisions
- hopefully this weeks guide
will put you on the path to
big wins in Week 4.
Adds:
Josh Gordon: Many
managers shied away from
Gordon during their draft
because of the two-game
suspension looming fromhis
off-the-eld issues. He has
WR1 talent on a team that
has been desperately trying
to stretch the eld for the
rst few weeks of the sea-
son. Brian Hoyer targeted
Gordon NINETEEN times
in Week 3, and you can
expect that number to hold
steady as the season contin-
ues. It is also worth mention-
ing that the Cleveland re
sale might lead to Gordon
being shipped off to a con-
tender in need of WR help
(New England and San
Francisco come to mind).
Bilal Powell: Powell was
slated as the number two,
back behind Chris Ivory
during the preseason, but
Ivorys ineffectiveness and
injuries have vaulted Powell
into the role of every down
back for the Jets. He might
not be as elusive as Ivory,
but his 29 touches in Week 3
prove that the Jets are eager
to run the ball and take the
pressure of rookie QB Geno
Smith. His talent is limited,
but that can easily be offset
by the lack of able-bodied
running backs on the Jets
depth chart. Any amount of
modest success can land him
the feature back duties, even
once Ivory returns from his
hamstring injury.
Brandon Bolden: Steven
Ridley has fallen out of favor
intheNewEnglandbackeld
and Shane Vereen will be on
the injured reserve list until
at least Week 11. Bolden
didnt see as many carries as
Ridley or even LeGarrette
Blount, but he did play on
26 of 72 snaps (more than
Blount and equal to Ridley).
Bolden is emerging as a pass
catching threat out of the
backeld and will likely be
playing most passing downs.
The Patriots offense is hurt-
ing for pass catchers right
nowand Bolden will have no
problem being a check-down
option for Tom Brady. His
value will clearly be elevated
in any PPR leagues.
Pass:
Santonio Holmes: Many
fantasy team owners rushed
to the waiver wire to place a
claim on the Jets WR after
his big game this past week
against Buffalo. Holmes
reeled in ve catches for 154
yards and one touchdown.
Does this mean Santonio is
back? Absolutely not. People
arent realizing that the
Buffalo secondary has been
absolutely decimated by
injuries. Many of the defen-
sive backs playing against
New York this past week
have no business trying to
cover NFL receivers, even if
said receiver is a former star
who is fading quicker with
each passing day.
Isaiah Pead: With the
injury to Daryl Richardson,
Pead had an opportunity
to showcase his talent and
attempt to earn at least a
timeshare in the Rams back-
eld. With that opportunity
Pead trudged to the line of
scrimmage on numerous car-
ries and rarely made defend-
ers miss. It is possible that
he could nd value in the
Rams hot-and-cold passing
attack though. St. Louis has
been playing catch up a lot
so far this season, so Pead
might be able to snag a few
passes from Sam Bradford,
but dont expect to see dras-
tically better numbers than
what Daryl Richardson (who
shouldnt miss more than
another week) has put up so
far this season.
Ted Ginn: Ginn had
himself a eld day against
a Giants defense that has
been struggling to nd its
identity early in the season.
There has never been any
question about Ginns speed.
Hes been torching defensive
backs since his years at Ohio
State. Ginns problems begin
with his hands and end with
his inability to run routes
effectively. Its awe-inspiring
to see someone so fast have
the inability to create sepa-
ration from defensive backs
on the professional level.

Ginn might be able to real in
a 40 to 50 yard bomb from
Cam Newton here or there,
but keep in mind those plays
are few and far between in
Carolinas run-heavy offense.
Hot start of the week:
Robert Grifn III. RG3 has
struggled mightily through
the rst three weeks. He has
looked better as each game
progressed (but I guess
thats not too difcult, con-
sidering he was barely even
on the scoreboard at halftime
of each game). Hes clearly
not 100 percent healthy, but
he will pull himself out of
the slump this week against
Oakland. Feel free to start
him without hesitation this
week - I know I will.
Sit this week: Dwayne
Bowe. Bowe just simply
isnt a t for an offense lead
by Alex Smith. Bowe has
elite receiver talent, but hes
merely a decoy in an offense
whose number one priority
is run the ball followed by:
check down to tight end,
run the ball, check down to
slot receiver, run the ball,
punt. Alex Smith has done
a great job leading this
Kansas City team through
three weeks, its just dif-
cult to see Smith and Bowe
nding any sort of mutual
success with one another.
- Ted is a Miami fan
through and through, and
has beenfumbling andstum-
bling his way through fan-
tasy leagues for 9 years now.

albums like these are a hit-or-miss
proposition; the cover-heavy, famous
friend tagalong collaborations. such
attempts have yielded monstrous
victories, like Johnny Cashs
american series, or abysmal
misfires like the recent metallica/
Lou reed Lulu trainwreck. Vocal
goliath sammy Hagar tries his hand
at this concept with sammy Hagar
& Friends, an album that brings
along for the ride bandmates like
Hagars Chickenfoot pals drummer
Chad smith and michael anthony
(Hagars co-Van Halen holdover),
along with notable buddies like Kid
rock and Journeys neal schon. the
result is pleasing no patchwork
quilt of assembled one-offs here; its
a classic sammy Hagar buckshot
through and through.
perhaps most noticeable is the
continued staying power of Hagars
bombastic, upper-register vocals.
at the age of 65, Hagar continues
to defy Father time with his soul-
phrased, agitated vocal candor. this
is evident on tracks like not going
down, a bluesy, idle-drive rocker
featuring bassist bill Church and
drummer denny Carmassi of Hagars
seminal early 1970s hard rock act,
montrose. Covers like depeche
modes personal Jesus are given
a playful roadhouse treatment, the
cut sounding like a lost chicken-
greased outtake from ZZ tops tres
Hombres album, schons strings
sizzling a bubbling blues.
Knockdown dragout is probably the
most typical Hagar hard-partying,
tequila-torrent rock n roll scrape.
Hagar and Kid rock trade lead
vocals amid a rhythmic blowout
reminiscent of Hagars 1997 radio
hit, Little White Lie. the only real
clinker of the bunch may be a cover
of Jimmy buffetts margaritaville,
with toby Keith on shared lead
vocal the tracks lackluster waft a
bit too karaoke to properly conform
to Hagars dynamic personality. a
lower-key cut that does work is all
We need Is an Island, co-written by
Hearts nancy Wilson, with a world-
music flair by way of grateful dead

Alan Jackson adds
new facet to sound
Deer Ticks albums have always slinked
past the connes of genre, and their fth
full-length album is no exception. The title
carries weight through the thread of senti-
ment across the 12 tracks, but Negativity
doesnt wallow the sound dips and rises,
varying from alt-country to sweet folk to
riled rock.
The Rhode Island quintet - guitar-
ist John McCauley, bassist Christopher
Dale Ryan, drummer Dennis Ryan, gui-
tarist Ian ONeil, and Rob Crowell on
keys and sax - all contribute vocals, led
he loves. With characteris-
tic laid-back charm, Jackson
applies his sweet baritone
to the hot acoustic pick-
ing and soaring harmonies
that characterize bluegrass.
What Jackson brings to the
table is outstanding song-
writing an area where
contemporary bluegrass can
be lacking. The 54-year- old
contributes eight original
songs, including the stand-
outs Blacktop and Lets Get
Back To Me And You, as well
as two by his nephew Adam
Wright, who co-produced
the collection with Jacksons
longtime studio collaborator,
Keith Stegall.
Jackson tips his hat to blue-
grass history by covering
Bill Monroes Blue Moon Of
Kentucky and the Dillards
great There Is A Time, and
he runs John Andersons Wild
And Blue through a mountain
gap without losing its soulful
strength.
To Jacksons credit, he
doesnt aim any of these songs
to fit country radios format.
Instead, he concentrates on
making a solid string-band
album for the ages and suc-
ceeds.
- Michael McCall,
Associated Press
W
by McCauley. Like many albums of 2013,
horn sections have snuck into several songs.
A blast of brass opens Trash, courtesy of
Austin collective Grupo Fantasma. Deer Ticks
love song to the open road then mellows into a
twangy melody, cresting with a chorus of crash-
ing drums and irtatious horns. Wheres all
the romance that I used to know/I wanna fall
in love again with the open road, McCauley
croons, gravelly and swaying with playful nos-
talgia, Checking out past noon, bill me if you
want/Its my disposition as a wasteful savant.
Thyme is an enchantingly sinister
rock waltz thatll appeal to fans of And the
Moneynotes and Dr. Dog. The presence of 70s
style ballads peppered throughout Negativity
echo those in other recent albums, like Band of
Horses Mirage Rock.
Vanessa Carlton joins McCauley on the un-
romantic realities of relationships on country
duet In Our Time.
Mirror Walls stands out with a steady
beat, keys that brighten and descend, and a
guitar solo wailing for a few bars of speedy
sorrow. Pot of Gold thrashes with the well-
worn energy of early Deer Tick, layering vocals
over persistant drumbeats, tearing the listener
from the countried doldrums and showcasing
McCauleys Cobainesque whinewell-suited
for their Nirvana covers side project, Deervana.
While the down-and-out sentiments remain
throughout Negativity, Deer Ticks coltish
spirit, catchy melodies, and accessible lyrics
allow for some mainstream sunshine to peek
out from behind the clouds.

Deer Ticks latest one of
eclectic sounds
Veteran country star Alan Jackson
ranks among the most tradition-based
singers of his generation. Most of his
influences are on the surface: honky-
tonk, swing, blues and songs both
romantic and social that draw on details
from his personal life.
Jacksons new The Bluegrass
Album, much like his two collections
of gospel hymns, brings out another
form of American roots music that

Book reviews and literary insight
Kacy Muir | Weekender Correspondent
One of the most important
gifts of life is love. Many of us
spend our lives falling in and
out of love with the world.
We learn about ourselves,
for better or for worse. After
all that soul searching, we
look for somebody to love,
hoping that one day we
will we eventually nd that
someone. Enter protagonist,
Marie Commeford, of Alice
McDermotts latest novel,
Someone. Marie takes
readers on a non-linear jour-
ney through life, love and
loss.
McDermott, who was pre-
viously awarded the National
Book Prize for her novel
Charming Billy, has gone
on to win various awards in
addition to being thrice nom-
inated for the Pulitzer Prize.
As a result, the continued
maturity, poise and brilliance
that McDermott has created
with Someone may prove
to be her most pivotal work
yet.
Readers are introduced to
Marie at a young age. We
soon nd that she is suffer-
ing from severe myopia, an
eye disorder that eventually
destroys her ability to see
clearly. However, the condi-
tion never once denies her
the ability to see the wonder
and beauty around her:
Slipping out of that rst
darkness, into the dusty,
city light of these rooms, I
met the blurred faces of the
parents Id been given
given through no merit of
my own faces that even to
my defective eyes, ill-formed,
you might say, in the hours
of that rst darkness, were
astonished by love.
Maries family gathers
much of the readers emotion
within the novel, particu-
larly her brother Gabe, who,
while religious, decides to
leave the priesthood. While
the reasons are unknown,
McDermott allows readers
to come to their own con-
clusions. Nevertheless, even
in Gabes ambiguity, readers
grow to admire and care for
him as a man who is both
genuine and noble.
Narrating the book as a
senior, Marie bridges one of
her rst memories wait-
ing for her father on the steps
of their Brooklyn home to
everything in between to
love, marriage, motherhood,
faith and death. Even consid-
ering McDermott does not
heed to chronological order,
there remains a great balance
to the work. The descrip-
tions are vivid and mesmer-
izing, transporting readers to
each given scene with preci-
sion. The pages move like a
perfected pirouette, whirling
with ease and grace.
The novel showcases that
there is more than one per-
son with the ability to love
us; they are those who can
take us in without judgment,
even knowing our darkest
secrets and deepest aws. In
the end, Maries life becomes
aculminationof events recap-
tured not through her dimin-
ishing sight, but through a
clear lens of wisdom.

Good cinematography
can do a lot for a movie.
It can transform average,
everyday locations into
something otherworld-
ly, affect a mood that
wouldnt otherwise be
captured in performances
or the storyline, and make
Hollywoods tiniest and
skankiest residents look
far more imposing and
slightly less skanky.
But as important as
good cinematography can
be, great cinematography
can do even more. How
much more? Well, let me
put it this way. Roger
Deakins cinematography
in Prisoners is so pow-
erful, so evocative and
wonderfully bleak, I didnt
realize I was watching bad
movie for at least the rst
hour of its two-and-a-half
hour running time. To
reiterate, Deakins camera
work is so good he actu-
ally tricked me into think-
ing I was watching a much
better movie. But eventu-
ally the magic of Deakins
camera wears off and you
start to realize that the
effective lm you thought
you were watching is
basically a dumbed down
version of Zodiac with
a twist ending so stupid
and convoluted its shock-
ing that it doesnt involve
aliens in some way.
In Prisoners, Hugh
Jackman plays a subur-
ban dad whose daughter
- along with her friend,
the daughter of next door
neighbor Terence Howard-
is seemingly abducted by
a deranged man who looks
like a composite sketch of
every doughy creep that
was tackled by that walk-
ing bush thing on To
Catch a Predator (Paul
Dano). Even though evi-
dence suggests that Dano
was not responsible for
the childrens disappear-
ance, Jackman still kid-
naps Dano and holds him
prisoner in an abandoned
house, where he tortures
him to reveal more about
the incident. Meanwhile,
a twitchy and haunted
Jake Gyllenhaal plays the
detective heading up the
investigation who discov-
ers theres more to this
story than just a simple
kidnapping. Which is
a shame, because this
movie would have worked
better if it was just about
a simple kidnapping.
Prisoners could have
been a much stronger
movie if it merely focused
on the sometimes dehu-
manizing effects of loss
or even the horrifying
lengths that parents will go
through for their children.
But, instead, Prisoners
is more interested in set-
ting up an overly-compli-
cated plot twist that is
so silly and cartoonish it
wouldnt be out of place
in a Dark Knight sequel.
Especially if the lms vil-
lain happens to be the
Riddler. Additionally,
even though Jackman is
the lms unofcial villain,
Prisoners is constantly
trying to manipulate us
into taking his side. Have
a problem with Jackman
beating Dano with a ham-
mer or scalding him with
hot water? Dont worry
about it. Dano strangled
a dog for no particular
reason. He was asking
for it. Dont like the fact
that Jackman took the
law into his own hands?
Well, thats OK because
all of that torture paid off
and Jackman managed to
solve the case long before
Gyllenhaal did. Nuance
and subtlety are for pre-
cious, big babies!
On the plus side, the per-
formances in Prisoners
are strong, particularly
Gyllenhaal, who takes his
intense, slightly unhinged
character in weird yet
understated directions
(like the early interroga-
tion scene where it seems
as if hes just about to
make out with Danos
deranged man-child). But,
much like Deacons cin-
ematography, the perfor-
mances are just window
dressing and cant conceal
the lms greater aws.

Weekender stafWriter
Hollywood meets home
Have you ever worked
out at Franklin Street
Fitness? Met friends for a
cup or two at Kirby Park
Coffee?
Impossible, as these
places dont exist, but they
ring quite the bell, dont
they?
Such references are only
a glimpse into what those
attending the screening
of The English Teacher
at the F.M. Kirby Center
on Sept. 28 can expect,
thanks to Wilkes-Barre
native Dan Chariton and
his wife, Stacy, who cur-
rently reside in California.
The couple co-wrote
the indie lm, directed
by Craig Zisk and star-
ring Julianne Moore,
Michael Angarano, and
Greg Kinnear, to name
a few, that takes place in
Kingston, a setting Dan
said was absolutely neces-
sary to get the tone of the
lm right.
Its a lm that wouldnt
have the same impact if it
were set in, say, a major
metro area, he elaborated.
Its specically something
geared toward a smaller
city or smaller town. One
of the main characters left
his small town to follow his
dream in the big city, and
now this is in some ways
his retreat. We wanted it
to be somewhere small
that was close enough to
a metro area and, lo and
behold, I happen to be
from an area like that.
The English Teacher
follows Moores character
Linda Sinclair, a 40-some-
thing high school English
teacher at Kingston High
School, whose need for
perfection has been a
mixed blessing. Shes pas-
sionate about the litera-
ture she teaches, and nds
herself unable to snag a
signicant other who can
measure up to the c-
tional romantic heroes she
encounters through litera-
ture.
A former student,
Jason Sherwood (played
by Michael Angarano)
comes back to the small
town after not quite cut-
ting it as a playwright in
the Big Apple, and he is
now being pressured by
his father (Greg Kinnear)
to give up his dream of
being a writer and attend
law school instead some-
thing that doesnt sit well
with Sinclair.
As Sinclair decides to
put on Sherwoods angst-
ridden college thesis
play at the high school, a
bevy of other characters
lter in: Nathan Lane
plays Mr. Kapinas, a high-
strung drama teacher at
the school; Lily Collins
offers her talents as the
drama departments lead-
ing ingnue; two-time
Tony winner Norbert Leo
Butz is vice principal; and
Hairspray actress Nikki
Blonsky appears as a teen
thespian.
There are clearly some
heavy Hollywood hit-
ters involved in the lm,
so sitting opposite them
and chatting about his
hometown was denitely
a shock to the system for
Dan.
It was surreal, being on
set with Julianne Moore
and shes wearing her
WVIA sweatshirt, and Im
talking to her about WVIA.
Why would anyone think
that that would happen to
them at any point? he said
with a laugh. I mean you
write these thingsI wrote
in the script that she was
wearing a WVIA sweat-
shirt in the one scene, but
we never actually assumed
that the production would
go out and get a WVIA
sweatshirt for her.
Such subtle locally-driv-
en references are sprinkled
throughout the lm, such
homages that may be lost
on a more wide-spread
audience, but will de-
nitely catch the attention
of all those who call the
Wyoming Valley home.
Though the lm has been
shown in many places,
including world premiere
earlier this year at the
Tribeca Film Festival,
Dan is looking forward to
bringing it home.
Its so much more
enjoyable to watch the lm
with an audience, especial-
ly one with a lot of comic
moments like this, to see
the reaction. Im most
looking forward to this
audience, to see their reac-
tions to local references.
And of course, I get to
see all of my teachers, my
friends from back home.
Due to what Dan calls
the reality of the produc-
tion, there was no way
The English Teacher
could actually be shot in
the area, but the movie
was still lmed relatively
close, in the New York
area. Though the actual
location didnt matter, the
ction one was a sticking
point for Dan, as it further
supported the personality
behind the lms charac-
ters personalities that he
knows all too well, as he
grew up with them in the
area.
Im sure this is the case
all over the country with
any specic geographical
region, but the people in
northeast Pennsylvania
have a certain style, an
attitude, a vibe, that I
know well and that I love
and wanted to represent
on screen in some fash-
ion, Dan said.
The people are very sin-
cere here. In the lm you
see Julianne Moore plays
a character whos incred-
ibly sincere in her love
of literature and the arts,
and Nathan Lane plays a
drama teacher whos mild-
ly eccentric, and very ear-
nest in his desire to put on
a fresh and new and mean-
ingful production.
Everyone has an ear-
nestness. Maybe it has to
do with being in a smaller
city, I dont know, but
theres a sincerity and
earnestness that kind of
underlies all behavior. And
yes, sometimes that actu-

Heidi adams, of Hanover township, with Linda Blair at
Scare-a-Con at the turning Stone Casino in Verona, n.Y.
on Sept. 14, 2013.
Dads is a new com-
edy on FOX that pre-
miered last week. Its a
Seth MacFarlane creation
that stars Seth Green and
Giovanni Ribisi as two
best friends who find
their lives turned upside
down when their fathers,
actors Peter Riegert and
Martin Mull, respec-
tively, decide to move in
with them.
Vanessa Lachey plays
Camila, Ribisis wife.
When asked if she could
ever picture her real-life
husband, singer Nick,
as an overbearing father
who meant well, she
laughed.
Nick is not an over-
bearing guy, she told
The Ralphie Show at
FOXs radio junket for
its new fall lineup. But
I could see, to that point,
how moms become over-
bearing because I swore
to my son, who is now
11-months-old, I would
never be that mom.
Camden is now one-
year-old and, despite
Vanessa claiming she
would never make his
friends or potential girl-
friends feel uncomfort-
able, she admits that may
be easier said than done.
Already, Im like,
Are you flirting with
her? Lachey said, half-
kidding, we think. She
painted her husband in
a softer light. Nick is
just like his father, which
is over-loving in such a
sweet way. Nick said the
one thing that hurt him
the most growing up was
his dad saying, Im dis-
appointed, son.
The actress can only
hope now that its the
audience, already with
high expectations given
MacFarlanes creator
and executive producer
credit, that isnt disap-
pointed.
JT GOES FOR THE
TKO
Justin Timberlake will
release the second half
of songs he wrote over a
year ago with Timbaland
on Sept. 30. It all hap-
pened during a whirl-
wind month when over
20 songs were worked on
within a 30-day period.
The 20/20 Experience 2
of 2 will actually feature
11 songs instead of 10, as
on the first installment,
because Timberlake sim-
ply wanted to release
more of the music the
duo created. On Friday,
the second single from
part two, TKO, hit
iTunes.
Tim and I went in
(to the studio) over a
year ago with Rob Knox,
Jerome Harmon a
bunch of great produc-
ers, said Timberlake
via telephone on The
Ralphie Show earlier
this month. I just told
them, I said, Look, I
dont have any expecta-
tions for this music even
coming out. Lets just
write a bunch of music
and have fun doing it and
keep it to ourselves.
Timberlake teased in
an open letter to fans that
the album only marks the
second of four quarters
in the process of his new
journey. Outside of the
LP, the only other known
item on Timberlakes
agenda is his upcoming
solo arena concert.
- Listen to The
Ralphie Show week-
nights from 7 p.m.-mid-
night on 97 BHT.

FALLING FOR
F
eel that cool breeze?
See those leaves
changing? That
means fall is in
the air, a season of new
beginnings - or, you know,
the time to snuggle up
under a blanket and lay in
front of the TV for hours.
There are plenty of
shows both coming out
Dr. Who 50th Anniversary Special,
The Day of the Doctor
Premiere date: Nov. 23 on BBC
What is it about? Dr. Who is a show thats actually
been around since the 1970s, and was rebooted in 2005.
This British sci- show follows the journey of a time-
traveling humanoid alien known as the Doctor, who makes
his way through time and space in a big blue police box
called the TARDIS.
Why should you watch? One old Doctor (and possibly
others) will return, and some plot lines fans have been
itching to get at may be revealed. Honestly, the whole plot
of the thing is a huge mystery, making a viewing of this
special a must.
W
How I Met Your Mother
Premiere date: Sept. 23 on CBS
Season: Nine, the nal season
What is it about? A man searches for the woman of
his dreams while enjoying the company of his four best
friends, navigating through the confusing and hilarious
time of his late twenties.
Why you should watch? Its rare for a TV series to
make it to its ninth year, and its even more rare to have
the entire nal season to tie up loose ends. This season
will truly be an homage to all that is HIMYM, featuring
characters from the past seasons returning to celebrate.
W
Sons of Anarchy
Premiered: Sept. 10 on FX
Season: Six
What is it about?: Sons of Anarchy follows a young
man, Jax Teller, and his motorcycle club through a variety
of adverse/illegal scenarios. Jaxs character is constantly
battling the difculty of balancing the responsibilities
of raising his children and protecting his family, while
keeping the clubs interests a top priority.
Why should you watch? This show has a phenomenal
dynamic in its characters and plot. It provides viewers
with a kind of entertainment that is not matched by any
other show on television.
W
Netix
Its not fall season-
specic, but Netix has
recently unloaded some
original series that are
certainly worth a look.
The Kevin Spacey-led,
Emmy-nominated House
of Cards is perfect for
those who like a political
twist; Orange is the New
Black couples laughs and
drama perfectly, following
a woman as she spends a
year in an all-female prison;
Lilyhammer follows a
anew and returning this
fall, and weve got the low-
down on them.
Whether you like horror,
sci-, or good old-fashioned
comedy or drama, theres
certainly a show to keep
you warm on a cold autumn
night.

The Blacklist
Airs on NBC

only turn himself in to
authorities, but also give up
everyone hes ever worked
with.

Season: Three
Premiere date: Oct. 9 on FX
What is it about? This season is taking place in New
Orleans in both modern-day and the 19th century and
will focus on the war between the Salem witches and
local voodoo witches. Zoe, played by Taissa Farmiga
from Season One, is a young girl that discovers she has a
strange genetic afiction tracing back to the dark days
in Salem and is taken to Miss Robichauxs Academy
for Exceptional Young Ladies in New Orleans, a school
devoted to protect those who are part of the ancient
bloodline.
Why should you watch? Two words: Kathy Bates.
Actually, the promo clips for this season already give you
an eerie feeling as well as the desire to watch more. If you
havent had a chance to catch any of the videos, the cast
might be more convincing returning to the show are
Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, and Jessica Lange, as well
as newcomers Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and Emma
Roberts.
W
The Walking Dead
Season: Four
Premiere date: Oct. 13 on AMC
What is it about? Survivors of the zombie apocalypse
continue to struggle to nd safe haven from the living
dead as well as other groups of survivors, the latter often
proving more dangerous than the former. Sheriff Rick
Grimes and his group have recently joined up with a town
of survivors who once viewed them as enemies, so expect
more drama and death as they share an abandoned prison.
Why should you watch? With most of the original cast
dead and last seasons villain, the Governor, still on the
loose after his murderous rampage, the show remains
unpredictable even to comic book fans who read the
source material. As ratings continue to climb with the
budget, more gory action and suspense is on the way
along with new characters and creative zombie kills. Will
your favorite survivors last through this season? Theres
only one way to nd out.
W
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Season: One
Premiere date: Sept. 24 on ABC
What is it about? In the last several Marvel superhero
lms, from Iron Man all the way through The

been keeping tabs on both the heroes and villains and
the escalation of these superhuman cases. Now Agent
Phil Coulson leads this spinoff show about an elite team
of these agents, all brand new characters created by
Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon and his team.
Why should you watch? If you love superhero comics or
movies or even just science ction television, this show is
going to be a must-watch on Tuesdays. Even though the
agents may not have powers, with a big budget and ties to
the Marvel Universe, expect to see some super storylines
and possibly even cameos from some well-known or fan-
favorite characters. How is Coulson even alive after his
battle with Loki in The Avengers? All will be revealed
soon enough. W
in a cop with a distaste
for robots and watch the
drama unfold as cases are
investigated in this strange
new world.

party girl who falls in love
with Bradley Whitfords

Rich Howells | Weekender Editor
At the beginning of this
nal season of Showtimes
Dexter, I remained opti-
mistic that the writers
could deliver a satisfying
ending to eight years with
everybodys favorite serial
killer. I should have taken
a cue from Dex and not
remained so optimistic.
There was no way to top
Season 4, where Dexter
played cat and mouse with
John Lithgows Arthur
Mitchell and lost, but
theres really no excuse
for this nal season. The
last few seasons denitely
werent mind-blowing,
though Seasons 5 and 6 at
least kept me interested.
Season 7 is where things
started falling apart, intro-
ducing some interesting
characters and storylines
but never delivering a sub-
stantial conclusion to any
of them. Despite it being
the last, Season 8 was treat-
ed much like a regular
season, where Dexter must
face-off against another
killer while trying to pro-
tect his secret and those he
loves, and thats exactly the
problem why had things
become so formulaic, and
why didnt they change
things up, take some risks,
and go out with a bang?
When the show was
being renewed, there was
debate about whether or
not this would be the nal
season. Maybe the creative
team assumed they would
have more time to wrap
things up, or maybe they
just felt comfortable writ-
ing the same themes over
and over again. If you fac-
tor in the early premiere
so that Dexter could run
alongside and promote
Ray Donovan, its clear
that things were rushed,
particularly in the nal
episode last Sunday. This
season spent so much time
on small, inconsequential
storylines that not one
character was given a sat-
isfying ending. (Spoilers up
ahead.) Lets go down the
list:
Dr. Evelyn Vogel:
Introduced as an impor-
tant part of Dexters origin
that we conveniently never
knew about until now, she
serves as nothing more
than a plot device before
her quick death.
Oliver Saxon: Hes sup-
posed to be the big twist
this season, but because
we spent so little time
with him, hes never given
a chance to shine like pre-
vious villains on the show
and is killed hastily without
any real-life consequence
for Dexter.
Jacob Elway and U.S.
Marshal Max Clayton:
Despite working in law
enforcement for years, both
apparently do not believe
in backup and are totally
ill-prepared for every task
they face.
Hannah McKay:
Returning early on as a
poisonous villain, she inex-
plicably becomes the love
of Dexs life again and sud-
denly becomes trustworthy
enough to leave his son
with.
Harrison Morgan: Now
that Harrison is older and
can talk, one would assume
hed start showing signs
of following in his fathers
footsteps or at least becom-
ing a more centralized part
of Dexters life, but hes
largely forgotten about
until he busts his head open
in a silly, pointless scene.
Debra Morgan: Her
character has grown and
changed the most from
Season 1, but in this sea-
son, her mood changes
each episode (from suicidal
to totally accepting of her
brothers poor choice in
women) and shes killed off
without neatly wrapping up
her overall story arch.
Dexter Morgan: Hes a
lumberjack and hes OK!
Yep, after eight years and
dozens of murders, Miami
Metro never catches up
with him and his self-
imposed exile leads to
beards and annel shirts
rather than a meaning-
ful conclusion to a life of
crime, justied or not.
The rest of the support-
ing cast: Angel and Jamie
Batista, Joey Quinn, Vince
Masuka, Tom Matthews
nothing interesting hap-
pens to any of them? None
of the subplots are granted
any closure, and even after
all theyve been through,
they seem just about the
same as they did in earlier
seasons.
In an attempt to tie things
up neatly in an hour, each
scene in the nale followed
a problem/solution formula
that allowed little time to
reect on everything being
dumped on the fans all at
once. Weve always had to
suspend our belief during
parts of this series, but in
just one episode, airport
security doesnt come after
Dexter after faking a bomb
threat (which he would
have been caught concoct-
ing on camera), police let
Dexter off the hook for
Saxons death within min-
utes, he is able to steal
Debs body away despite
hundreds of witnesses run-
ning all over, and not one
other cop trailed Dex or
Hannah despite Elway and
Claytons suspicions.
Despite its attempts to
appear deep or profound,
such as when Dex dumps
Debs body like he would
any of his other victims, the
nal episode of Dexter
was sloppy, rushed,
and outright ridiculous
throughout. Its sad that
fans who made this one of
the highest rated shows on
television were rewarded
for their loyalty with this
lackluster mess of an epi-
sode, which lies in stark
contrast to the epic closing
of AMCs Breaking Bad.
They couldnt even give us
a two-hour episode?!
Perhaps this is why
AMC is producing hit
after hit they listen to
fans and respectfully n-
ish what they started. The
most hope Dexter fans
have now is for a movie
or that rumored spinoff
series, but Ill think twice
before investing any more
time into anything related
to Dexter again. After
trudging through several
so-so seasons for this, Im
tired of being set up for
disappointment. Dexter
didnt quit until his job was
done, but his writers must
have given up long ago. My
subscription to Showtime
cannot be canceled soon
enough.

Fitness tips & tricks
Tim Hlivia | Special to the Weekender
culinarywizardry
Sara Pokorny | Weekender StafWriter
Give your workout a tuneup
With the warmer months
coming to an end, winter
months are not that far off.
The winter months are typ-
ically thought of as a time
for hibernation, but for the
t minded, we use these
months to drop body fat for
the inevitable upcoming
bathing suit season. Lets
refocus and give your work-
out the tuneup it needs,
and get back to the basics.
The warm-up
Most of us know the
importance of warming
up. Ideally, this is not the
time to just jump on the
treadmill; doing this does
not prepare your body for
a complete workout. I rec-
ommend skipping that and
focusing on a warm-up that
consists of bodyweight
exercises that will properly
prepare your muscles and
joints for exercise. If you
are set on doing some car-
dio beforehand, choose
a machine that will utilize
the most muscles at one
time. The rowing machine
is great for this because it
utilizes upper and lower
body, versus the treadmill,
which is lower body. Also,
adding some foam rolling
is a great way to massage
your muscles prior to your
workout.
The workout
With all the existing exer-
cise fads out there, some
people lose sight of what a
proper workout looks like.
The way exercises are orga-
nized within your workout
can make a huge differ-
ence. Strategically placing
certain exercises at the
beginning or end of your
session can help tremen-
dously with the outcome.
Do things in the following
order for maximum work-
out success:
A. Skill or power exercis-
es. Examples are plyomet-
rics and power exercises.
These exercises should be
done at the beginning of
a workout while your neu-
romuscular system is still
fresh.
B. Major muscle resis-
tance exercises. Examples
are straight or superset
exercises. When training
for body fat loss, stick to
super sets that utilize major
muscle groups. This will
maximize time and results.
When using different meth-
ods of training in the same
workout, use dumbbells
rst, then barbells, and,
nally, machines.
C. Core training or torso
training. Core training is
a great way to bring your
workout to a close. There
are many ways to train
your core, but whichever
method you choose, keep
this in mind: train your
midsection with two sim-
ple moves. One is a stabil-
ity exercise (like a plank)
and the other is a rotational
exercise (like cross body
mountain climbers).
The finisher
Ending your workout
with something called a
nisher can ignite your
metabolism and torch calo-
ries and body fat. Instead
of doing your usual cardio
session, try something like
this:
1. Reverse lunges (body
weight)
2. Push-ups
3. Squats (body weight)
4. Prone pull-down
5. Side lunges
6. Push up with row
7. Jump rope
8. Cross body mountain
climbers
9. Jumping jacks with
medicine ball overhead
press
10. Burpees
Do each exercise for 20
seconds, with 20 seconds
rest in-between exercises.
Complete the cycle two to
three times.

Well, it happened.
Two days ago I dug out
my boots.
Last night I turned my
heat on.
A light jacket is now in
full effect during my com-
mute to work.
I concede, Fall - you have
most denitely arrived.
Fall is the perfect time
for comfort food, for warm
avors, hot soups, and
cinnamon-tinged meals.
This chicken, apple, and
sweet potato dish certainly
brings all elements neces-
sary for a tasty fall meal
and - bonus! - its a crock-
pot recipe, so its simple to
boot.
Layer sweet potato
chunks and chicken thighs
in the bottom of a slow
cooker, and season with
salt and pepper. In a small
bowl, stir together garlic,
red onion, apple sauce,
cider vinegar, curry pow-
der, and ginger. Pour the
mixture over the chicken
and sweet potato.
Throw a lid on it and
cook on low for six to eight
hours, until the chicken
and sweet potatoes are
tender. You can eat this
alone, or garnish it with
fresh basil and serve over
sauteed greens for extra
kick.

Makeup tips and tricks Made easy
Bobby Walsh | Weekender Correspondent
yes, no, and where to go
Erin Rovin | Weekender Correspondent
This year I was invit-
ed to participate in the
Mercedes-Benz Fashion
Week gifting suites at
The Empire Hotel in
New York City. This par-
ticular event is run by a
Los Angeles-based full
service marketing, pub-
lic relations and event
planning company called
GBK.
The basic idea is that
a large list of celebrities
are compiled and invit-
ed to attend a gifting
lounge. Sponsors are set
up in said lounge, where
they gift their products
to the invited celebrities
and media outlets. I was
a celebrity escort.
Unfortunately, it
was not as risqu as it
sounds.
My job was to hang
out at the famed Empire
Hotel right next to the
Lincoln Center, where
all the good stuff went
down. Once a celebrity
arrived I would escort he
or she through the maze
of sponsors and gifts,
which ranged from four
nights at a luxury resort
to designer handbags
and makeup.
Across the street, tall
beautiful models were
showcasing Spring 2014
collections like Jason
Wus ethereal feminine
shapes and airy fabrics.
That same Friday, Rag
and Bone pushed its 90s
minimalist feel. Nicole
Miller provided lots
of eye candy with tex-
tured florals, filigree and
stripes; very Versailles
garden meets graffiti
punk. Kate Spade stayed
true to her demure and
classy feminine shapes
and patterns influenced
by Parisian gardens, as
well as her signature
structured bags. Rebecca
Minkoff livened things up
with live runway music
while using Mexico as
inspiration. Brightly col-
ored skirts paired with
a tee that stated Lets
all go to Mexico, which
was overlapped by a
sporty cardigan. Some
famous Latin Americans
who inspired this collec-
tion were Bianca Jagger
and Frida Kahlo. I would
love to take a vacation
to Mexico right about
now
Meanwhile, back at
The Empire Hotel, I was
enamored with my favor-
ite fashionista couple:
Ice-T and Coco. I have
a seriously weird obses-
sion with Coco Austin
and her ability to match
things. And Ice, well,
hes just cool.
Next door to The
Empire Hotel was the
Maybelline makeover
storefront, complete
with a moving lipstick
installation art piece.
Maybelline was the offi-
cial makeup sponsor of
Mercedes-Benz Fashion
Week, so its logo was all
over the city. Dolled-up
New Yorkers spilled from
the store out onto the
street, where they found
their way up the steps of
Lincoln Center.
It was great being in
the city during one of its
most exciting signature
events. Everyone wore
their most quirky, expen-
sive or just all-black out-
fits and traipsed around
like fashion elitists -
including moi, until I
passed out on a family
members air mattress at
9 p.m.
In my very best paja-
mas, of course.

If you havent noticed
already when shopping in
Sephora, the Sephora by
OPI nail polish has been
clearanced and the selection
dwindled down to nothing
but the colors no one wants.
Now there is a blank dis-
play unit with a lot of room
and with Xs on it - that, my
friend, is the new home to
Formula X for Sephora.
The new shades and
effects portion of the col-
lection will cost $10.50 to
$12.50 each, and the treat-
ments retail for $10.50 to
$14. Formula X has never-
before-seen ingredients from
all over the world, amazingly
fast drying time, and safe
neon pigments.
hese high-gloss precision,
super opaque lacquers will
last up to two weeks. Im
also a sucker for packaging
and these bottles are the per-
fect size and shape for cata-
loging, storing, and stacking
your polishes.
Sephoras Formula X is a
colossal collection of excit-
ing, beautifully vibrant col-
ors, effects, and treatments
for everyone. The collection
consists of 90-plus standard
colors and 50-plus special
effects polishes in an abun-
dance of categories (12, to
be precise).
Nail art devotees every-
where will be able to choose
from: The Celestials (matte
metallics), The Chromes
(liquid metallics), The
Electrics (neon pearl and
shimmers), The Brilliants
(multi-dimensional spar-
kling multi-glitters), The
Holograms (holographic
dimensional colors),
The Translucents (shiny
sheers),The Shifters (shade-
shifting duo-chromes), The
Sparklers (3-D metallic
shimmers), The Superwatts
(jelly glitters), The Lusters
(multi-sized glitter), The
Transformers (illusionary
topcoats) andThe Xplosives,
which are the most impact-
ful of the whole collection
(matte confetti glitter and
white confetti glitter).
As part of the launch, as
well as a staple product in
the line they created, The
System is available. The
System consists of a nail
cleanser, basecoat, topcoat,
and color of your choice for
just $32.
You cant get any better
than that, especially when
other basic polish lines nail
colors start at around $9
for a run-of-the-mill polish
that you can hope and pray
will last through the next
few days. If you love higher-
end polishes like Deborah
Lippmann, you will love this.
Formula X is launching
nowat Sephoras nationwide.
Tip: Prepping your nails
are important, so make sure
you use a base and top coat;
never use the combination
ones.
Before you begin the pro-
cess remove excess oils on
your nails with a swipe of
acetone.
Trick: Keep your mani-
cure newer longer by apply-
ing a horizontal strip of nail
color across the tip of your
nail, this will round out the
edge of the polish, making it
harder for it to lift and chip.

A 20-somethings wild Adventures
Justin Brown | Weekender Correspondent
I should probably be
ashamed by how closely I
relate to the lyrics of Miley
Cyrus last two singles.
Sorry, Mom and Dad, but
there aint no shame in my
twerking game.
In fact, aint no shame
in my respect for Miley
Cyrus. While everybody
and their mother, mine
included, is talking about
how unrened and outra-
geously inappropriate her
behavior is, I believe every-
one should take a Xanax
and chill the hell out. Miley
Cyrus is more than an
overtly sexualized former
Disney star with an oral
xation for sledgehammers
- she is a role model for the
Millenial generation! Thats
right! MILEY CYRUS IS A
MOTHER FKING ROLE
MODEL! DONT GET IT
TWISTED.
She gets paid to enter-
tain us! Her music isnt
being played in Calcutta as
a group of dehydrated nuns
hand out bread crumbs to
starving village folk, while
scientists are in a lab trying
to create the cure for can-
cer, or as an overture prior
to the President making a
speech about Syria. Miley
Cyrus music is being played
in nightclubs, dive bars, and
basement parties hosted by
douche bags looking to get
laid while their parents are
away in the Poconos for the
weekend. She isnt trying to
save the world. Thats what
weed and gay marriage is
for. Miley Cyrus is simply
embracing the transition of
developing from childhood
to adulthood, and all the
experimentation and fun
that comes along with it.
Shes trying too hard to
break away from her image
as Hannah Montana, my
mother says whenever she
sees Miley sticking her
tongue out on TV.
Though everyone may
not relate to the pressures of
being hawked by the media,
everyone can, or eventually
will, identify with the extent
of time in a persons life that
is spent pushing the limits
of newfound freedom, play-
ing around with blossom-
ing sexuality, and craving
attention so the people who
knew you when you were
younger are well aware that
you are no longer the child
you once were. For me, it
was my Mom and Dad that
sawme rebel, act dumb, and
live carelessly. For Miley
Cyrus, its the entire world.
I can only imagine what
the ladies on The View
would have to say about
the time I dressed up as
JonBenet Ramsey for
Halloween in college, what
joke Leno would come up
with about the time a strip-
per I hired shoved a lollipop
up my fraternity brothers
ass at a birthday party, or
what anyone else would
have to say about my behav-
ior at 20 if I were being
watched by the public eye.
Miley doesnt care if the
world knows she is being
young and crazy like every-
one else. She owns that
she is young, wild, and g-
uring out her place in the
world. Shes just acting how
everyone else her age acts
when theyre partying, and
dont let them fool you. She
preaches to just have fun
and remember its our party,
Millenials, we can do what
we want to! Let the prude
be haters, because you cant
be old and wise without
once being young and crazy.
Thats why one day, Miley
Cyrus will be a grandmoth-
er with some awesome sto-
ries and great advice! #truth

Not so silly to admire Cyrus
CULTURAL DIVERSITY
Japan and Korea seemto
be the birthplaces in the quest
for youthful and beautiful
skin, with the latest elixir (as
usual, based on traditional,
centuries-old beliefs) being snail
mucus applied by specially
bred live snails that slither
across customers faces. the
Clinical salon in central tokyo
sells the 60-minute Celebrity
escargot Course session for the
equivalent of about $250 and
even convinced a London daily
telegraph reporter to try one in
July. (previously, news of the
Weird has informed readers of
asian nightingale-feces facials
and live-fsh pedicures.)
Unclear on the Concept:
among people earnestly
devoted to palmistry (the
foretelling of the future by
expert examination of the
inner surface of the hand), a
fewin Japan have resorted
to what seems like cheating:
altering their palmlines with
cosmetic surgery. according to
a July daily beast dispatch from
tokyo, dr. takaaki matsuoka is a
leading practitioner, preferring
an electric scalpel over laser
surgery in that the latter more
often eventually heals over,
obviously defeating the purpose.
He must be careful to add or
move only the lines requested by
the patient (e.g., marriage line,
romance line, money-luck
line, fnancial success line).
LATEST RELIGIOUS
MESSAGES
Irans Insanews service
reported in January that ofcials
in shiraz had acquired a fnger-
amputation machine to perhaps
streamline the gruesome
punishment often meted out to
convicted thieves. (amasked
enforcer turns a guillotine-like
wheel to slice of the fnger in the
manner of a rotary saw.) Iran is
already known for its reliance on
extreme Islamic sharia, which
prescribes amputations, public
lashings and death by stoning,
and middle east commentators
believe the government will now
step up its amputating of fngers,
even for the crime of adultery.
smiting skeptics: measles,
despite being highly contagious,
was virtually eradicated in
america until a small number of
skeptics, using now-discredited
research, tied childhood
vaccinations with the rise of
autism, and nowthe disease
is returning. about half the
members of the eagle mountain
International Church near dallas
have declined to vaccinate
their children, and as of late
august, at least 20 church
members have experienced
the disease. the head pastor
denied that he preaches against
the immunizations (although
he did tell npr, cryptically, (t)
he (medical) facts are facts, but
then we knowthe truth. that
always overcomes facts.).
Outraged Jewish leaders
complain periodically about
mormons who, in the name of
their church, posthumously
baptize deceased Jews
(even Holocaust victims)
benefcently, of course, to help
themqualify for heaven. Church
ofcials promised to stop, but in
2012 reports still surfaced that
not all mormons got the memo.
thus inspired, areligious
order called the satanic temple
conducted a Julypink mass
over the meridian, miss., grave of
the mother of the founder of the
Westboro baptist Church, rev.
Fred phelps Jr. posthumously
turning her gay. (Westboro
infamously stages small,
hate-saturated demonstrations
denouncing homosexuals and
american tolerance.) ten days
later, meridian prosecutors
charged a satanic temple ofcial
with misdemeanor desecration
of a grave.
QUESTIONABLE JUDGMENTS
australias chief diplomat
in taipei, taiwan, said in
august that he was suing local
veterinarian yang dong-sheng
for fraud because dr. yang
backed out of euthanizing
the diplomat Kevin magees
sick, 10-year-old dog. Instead,
dr. yangrescued the dog,
who is nowthriving after he
patiently treated her. magees
lawsuit claims, in essence, that
his family vet recommended
euthanization, that he had
paid for euthanization, and
that benji should have been
put down. dr. yang said the fee
magee paid was for medical
care and not necessarily
euthanization. (benji, frolicking
outside when a reporter visited,
was not available for comment.)
In august, a prosecutor in
Houston fled aggravated rape
charges against a 10-year-old
girl (ashley) who had been
arrested in June and held for
four days in a juvenile detention
center. aneighbor had seen
ashley touching a 4-year-old boy
in his private area, according
to a KrIV-tVreport in other
words, apparently playing the
time-honored, rite-of-passage
game of doctor.
SQUIRRELS GONE WILD
smithsonian magazine detailed
in august the exhaustive
measures that military ofcials
have taken to fnally block
relentless richardsons ground
squirrels fromtunneling
underneath malmstromair Force
base in montana and interfering
with the minuteman III
intercontinental ballistic missiles
on 24/7 standby. For example,
ofcials had to use trial-and-
error to plant underground
screens deeper into the ground
than the squirrels cared to
dig. aday after that report
was published, a bus driver in
gothenburg, sweden, crashed
into a tree (with six passengers
requiring hospital treatment)
after swerving to avoid a squirrel
in the road. On the same day,
a newyork times reporter
disclosed that his own news
monitoring for 2013 revealed
that squirrels have caused 50
power outages in 24 states in
the U.s. since memorial day
after invading electric company
substations.

FIRST AMENDMENT BLUES
In the public libraries of Seattle (as in most
public libraries), patrons are not allowed to
eat or sleep (or even appear to be sleeping)
or be shirtless or barefoot or have bad body
odor or talk too loudly because other
patrons might be disturbed. However, in
Seattle, as the Post-Intelligencer reported
in September, librarians do permit patrons
to watch hard-core pornography on public
computers, without apparent restriction, no
matter who (adult or child) is walking by or
sitting inches away at the next screen (al-
though librarians politely ask porn-watchers
to consider their neighbors). Said a library
spokesperson: (P)atrons have a right to
view constitutionally protected material no
matter where they are in the building, and
the library does not censor.

BEER REVIEWS
Derek Warren | Weekender Correspondent
Beer: Berwick IPA
Brewer: Berwick Brewing Company
Style: American IPA
ABV: 6.50%
Description: Berwick IPA pours a
hazy golden yellow color with a uffy
white head that dissipates, but leaves a
thin lacing on the glass. The aroma is
a wide bouquet of hops dominated by
scents of pine, grapefruit, and a touch
of raisin, all backed up with sweet malt.
Its apparent that this is a well-balanced
beer, based solely off the aroma. The
taste follows the aroma and the bit-
terness from the hops hits the palate
rst, with citrus and pines being the
most dominate. Sweet biscuit malt then
washes over the palate before a long dry
nish. The body of this beer is in the
medium-to-full range with a great sup-
port to display the hops and add sweet-
ness, leaving a lingering bitterness
on the tongue. This is one of the best
IPAs available on the East Coast and
has an absolutely perfect balance. We
are beyond lucky to have
such a fantastic offering
so close to home.
Food pairing: This is
an IPA that is great to
have with spicier dishes.
If you are at home, pair
this with a medium-
cooked burger topped
with pepper jack cheese
and jalapeos. The cara-
melized ends of the burg-
er will accentuate the
sweetness in the malt,
and the hop character
will absolutely be in love
with the spicy peppers.
Another fantastic pair-
ing with this beer occurs
if you are at the brewery
itself, and thats with
the Graham Standard
pizza, a pizza topped
with hot sauce, sausage,
and Wisconsin cheese
curds. If youre not a fan
of spicy dishes, pair this
beer with salmon topped
with lemon pepper. The
oils from the sh have
met their match in the
carbonation of the beer,
and the lemon citrus a-
vors will blend faultlessly
with the citrus avoring
from the hops. The com-
binations with this beer
are endless and with
good reason - its abso-
lutely delicious.
The nal word: An
absolutely stunning IPA. It is hard to
imagine that an IPA this well-made is
right here in our own backyard, but it is
and we should all be taking advantage of
it. Its made better in the fact that it is
a very approachable IPA for novices and
craft beer fanatics alike. The hops are
certainly present, but not overpowering
enough to put someone new to the style
off. The only complaint I have is that it
is not yet available in six-packs, because
I certainly want to have at least that
many around. Be sure to get your hands
on this breathtaking IPA and spread
the good word about this well balanced
brew made right here at home.

So close, and so delicious
Derek Warren
Weekender Correspondent
Building Berwick Brewing
When one thinks of
Berwick, many different
things can come to mind: per-
haps rst thoughts may go to
the nuclear power plant, or
thepopular BerwickBulldogs.
There is something else that
should certainly spring to
mind, though, and thats fan-
tastic beer.
BerwickBrewingCompany
has been producing great
beers since 2006 and shows
absolutely no signs of slowing
down any time soon. Owner
Tom Clark has a strong brew-
ing pedigree and has worked
for and with many of the
brewing pioneers inthe indus-
try. This has given him the
knowledge for both the busi-
ness and brewing ability to
make highquality, exceptional
beers on a consistent basis.
The brewery opened in its
current location in 2006 and
has steadily grown to ll the
facility, adding a variety of
areas for patrons to sit and
enjoy a pint or two while eat-
ing some of their wonderful
pizzas. While visiting I had
the chance to partake in the
Graham Standard, a spicy
pizza with sausage and fresh
Wisconsin cheese curds,
paired with the Couple Two
Tree Pale Ale. I cannot speak
highly enough of this combi-
nation.
Another fantastic addition
to the brewery is the relaxing
Biergarten, or Beer Garden,
toWesterners. TheBiergarten
overlooks the Susquehanna
River and makes for a won-
derful afternoon spent out-
side, rain or shine.
In addition to the four core
beers that the brewery cur-
rently produces, which are
Berwick Lager, Hondo Keller
Bier, Front Street Wheat, and
Berwick IPA, the brewery
also produces a wide assort-
ment of beer styles that are
only available on location.
Currently, the brewery has
18 taps running at all times
in the tasting room, so one
could easily spend a day there
without having the same beer
twice.
If all of this was not enough,
Berwick Brewing Company is
expanding from a two-barrel
brew house to a 10-barrel
brew house, meaning access
to even more great beer. The
brewery is also expanding its
lineof bottledbeers. Currently,
it offers four beers in22-ounce
bottles: Red Bank Dark Lager,
Berwick IPA, Front Street
Wheat, and Grumpy Bills
Porter. More bottled beer in
12-ounce bottles will come
with the expansion.
BerwickBrewingCompany
is a fantastic place to stop in
for a great beer, foodandgreat
conversation, whether its
with the locals or the employ-
ees.
The hours are also a bonus,
as it allows beer drinkers
plenty of opportunity to stop
by and enjoy what Berwick
Brewing has to offer. The
bar is open Tuesday through
Thursday from 3 to 11 p.m.;
Friday from 3 to midnight;
Saturday from 1 p.m. to mid-
night; and Sunday from 1 to
7 p.m.
The brewery is located at
328 West Front St., Berwick.
Head down to have some
beers on-site, or take some
home in bottles or a growler.
No matter how you get it,
Berwick Brewing Companys
beers are all wonderful, and
worth the drive.

In 2011 Rayman Origins
made me fall in love with a
series that I never really liked
before. With its beautiful
hand-drawn visuals and great
controls it became one of the
best platforming games I have
every played, which is why Im
so excited to play its sequel
RaymanLegends.
Rayman, Globox and the
gangarebackonanotheradven-
ture, and developers Ubisoft
haveoutdonethemselves injust
about every way with Rayman
Legends. The game has all of
the same controls, power-ups,
and character movements that
the last game had, but it man-
ages to feel fresh because of the
new twists in level design and
environments, including new
stealth-based and exploration
levels.
Apart from the new game-
play elements, the most notable
change to Rayman Legends
is newly upgraded graphics
thanks to the new lighting
engine; the cartoon-like charac-
ter designs and backgrounds
look even more beautiful than
ever. Legends also includes
several re-mastered levels from
Origins, and they are even
better thanI remembered.
Another newaddition to the
game-playaretheauto-scrolling,
music-basedlevels; theyreinter-
esting because you have to run
fast and jump in time with the
great music soundtrack the
gamehas tooffer.
There are also a few new
playable characters, like a
new female character named
Barbaraandhersisters, whoare
available once they are rescued
in certain stages. These new
characters are great when play-
ing four player co-op so every-
onehas afunavatar toplayas.
The single player experi-
ence is a lot of fun, but the way
to really get the most out of
the game is to play with some
friends. Thegameplayis frantic,
and fun, but can be a little hard
to follow when four players are
jumpingaround. One thingthat
is disappointing is that there is
no online multiplayer; if you
want to play co-op it has to be
locally.
If you are playing on the Wii
U or Vita version of the game
you can control a returning
character named Murfy via
the touch controls. Murfy can
perform various actions such
as cutting through ropes, acti-
vating switches, grabbing hold
of enemies and gathering hard-
to-reach Lums. You can still use
Murfyontheother versions but
you cannot control him, as its
just thegameAI andisnt nearly
as useful or fun.
Just like the last Rayman
game, I played the game on the
Vita, and that particular style
of game play really lends itself
to a handheld mobile system,
because you can pick it up for
a few minutes and play and its
just as good as if you dedicated
hours. The console versions
are more powerful, but the Vita
is just as good. The Wii U ver-
sion has downloadable skins of
MarioandLuigi, whicharealot
of fun.
JustlikeinRaymanOrigins,
each level of Legends has you
running, jumping, and punch-
ingyour waythroughlevels, col-
lectingLums bytouchingthem,
defeating enemies, or freeing
captured Teensies. There are
several different challenges in
eachlevel: youcanchoosetocol-
lect as many Lums as possible,
find all the hidden collectables,
or beat the level in the fastest
time. Completionists will want
tospendtime playingeachlevel
multiple times to finish each
objective. Along with these
things there is also a fun soccer
mini game, as well as a variety
of ranked online challenges that
will be updated periodically. All
of these different tasks add to
there-playablityof thegameand
keepyoucomingbackformore.
Overall, I loved this game.
Rayman Legends is one of
the best platforming games on
the market with the best graph-
ics and amazingly smart level
designs.
It has so many unlockables,
re-mastered levels and mini
games, that you will want to
playfor alongwhile. If youliked
Rayman Origins you will love
this game, but even if youre
just looking for a fun action
platformer, this game cant be
missed.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Theres heavy traffic ahead. Youre
going to be stuck in a bumper-to-
bumper jam for the foreseeable future.
Theres no avoiding it; the standstill
blocks the only available route to your
destination. Sucks, doesnt it? But it
could be worse; at least you have this
warning, so you can stock up on good
music, refreshments, and best of all,
a companion to keep you entertained
while youre trapped in the stop-and-go.
You also have this scant consolation:
Once youve cleared the gridlock youll
have nothing but open highway for at
least three weeks, and best of allno
speed limit.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Einstein once said, You do not really
understand something unless you can
explain it to your grandmother. Thats
the kind of in-depth knowledge youll
need to cultivate if you hope to make it
through the week unscathed. You cant
be satisfied with simply scratching the
surface; youve got to plumb deeply
enough to know how things work from
the inside out. This applies to every-
thing in your life that youre the least
bit interested in, from the mechanics of
your car engine to the inner workings of
your lovers soul. If you have any doubt
about the thoroughness of your compre-
hension, ask yourself if you could make
Grandma get it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Youve had great chances to show off
your kindness, generosity, and compas-
sion recently. Im quite impressed and,
truth be told, a little turned on. Youve
made it quite clear that youre willing to
dig deep, and appreciate beauty thats
blemished, and complicated people, and
messiness of all kinds. This week youll
have many opportunities to blow us all
away with even more unprecedented
displays of messy emotion, like foolhar-
dy passion, ridiculous munificence, and
the bigheartedness and open arms of a
lusty saint. Rise to these occasions, as
youre more than capable of, and youll
not only make the Hero Worship lists of
at least three new people, youll prob-
ably get laid, too.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The mirror youre looking at is more
valuable than you think. Unlike conven-
tional mirrors, this one shows you your
own best potential. Believe in it. It tells
no liesonly you could make it a liar,
if you choose, by deliberately thwart-
ing its beautiful vision. Thats what Im
worried about; theres a tiny part of you
that is just perverse enough to screw
things up just to see whatd happen.
Dont do that, Capricorn. Youre fortu-
nate enough to find someone who has
faith in your greatness, latent or actual.
Dont break that mirror. Its bad luck.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Love is tricky and strangebut how
would you know? Okay, maybe your
love life isnt perfect, but surely youve
noticed by now that youre slightly luck-
ier in love than those around you, if you
look at the big picture. Be a yenta this
week. Whether or not youre currently
romantically entangled, youve had an
easier time acquiring those entangle-
ments than most of the people you
knowmany of whom want them much
more than you do. Help them out. Give
your romantically-challenged friends a
leg up, with advice, matchmaking, or
just good old-fashioned pimping. Do it
to repay the universe for the blessings
youve received. You owe it one.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
In some ways, youre as accommodat-
ing, tactful, and peace-loving as a Libra;
more than anyone, you loathe getting
bogged down in petty disagreements.
Thats why its key this week that you
be at your most diplomatic, obliging,
and sweet, or risk being mired in nig-
gling debates and needless drama over
trivial disputes. These things dont mat-
ter, but for some reason youre the only
one who thinks so. Eventually, these
idiots will come to their senses and quit
bugging you about this st. They may
even apologize for doing so. But for
now, take the path of least resistance,
even if its not your ideal routeits
still better than the emotional traffic
youd find everywhere else.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
During your solo game of emotional
musical chairs, timing is paramount.
You never know when the music will
stop, and what mood youll end up in.
What might annoy you in one moment
could tickle your funny bone in the
next, or make you cry, or bore you. This
is a good thing. Your role right now is
to shake things up (especially yourself)
and be a catalyst for change. You cant
do that if everyones got you all fig-
ured out, and can predict your next ten
moves. Luckily, since even you dont
know how youll feel or what youll do
in five minutes, guessing where youll
be eleven days from now is impossible.
And believe it or not, that limbo full of
beautifully chaotic randomness, impul-
siveness and limitless possibility is
exactly where you need to be.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
The conflicts are piling up. These
disturbing discrepancies arent caused
by differences of opinion, politics, or
real-life questions, like, Whos gonna
get the girl? Theyre caused by timing.
Youre trapped in your own version of
a badly dubbed kung fu movie, where
sound and picture just dont line up.
Working your ass off to make things
work and interpret bad translations has
helped you squeak by so far without any
major mishaps or faux pas. However,
the backlog of missed opportunities and
slightly botched paperwork has become
too cumbersome and messy. Put a few
things on hold so you can address the
deeper problem youve been putting
off. If you dont, youre likely to suffer a
regrettable (especially because its pre-
ventable) blunder this week thatll have
you kicking yourself for months.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Its a confusing time for Geminis,
and changing from moment to moment.
First you think youve got things fig-
ured out better than you have in years,
and minutes later you decide youre
more lost than youve ever been. I
dont envy you, but at times like these
you need to dig deep and step up. You
cant be lazy or take the easy way out,
and sometimes that means you need
the help of your friends. So take their
advice when they give it to you. They
have pure motives and an ideal perspec-
tive. Trust that they know what theyre
talking about, would you? They do.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Forget the bullst about idle hands
being the devils workshop. Im more
worried about your idle mind, because
within it lie the seeds of your own
downfall. Left with too much time and
energy to spare, your brain is all too
capable of creating new and unpredict-
able forms of self-sabotage. In other
words, keep busy this week, and every-
thing will be just fine. Dont give your-
self time to stew and ponder and won-
der. Those fruitless activities will just
make you miserable, both internally,
and externally, and ultimately screw
things up, big time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Leos arent renowned for their subtle-
ty. You can be tactful, and manipulative,
but delicacy isnt your forte. You gen-
erally prefer forthright honesty. Lately,
this has felt like a great weakness,
because people seem to want you to
play games youre either incapable of or
just no good at. Luckily, there are a few
who appreciate the unadorned truth.
See, everyone lies, or hides parts of the
truth or simply withholds the truth of
what they feel because itd make them
too vulnerable to admit it. Thats what
makes what youre capable of all the
more valuable. If you can be nakedly
honest this week, youll be immortal, or
at least as close as any of us can get
certainly no one you tell the truth to
will ever be able to forget you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
What amazing experiments will
you get up to this week? Youre Dr.
Frankenstein in his lab, about to chan-
nel a tremendous bolt of lightning for
your own slightly nefarious purposes.
Fortunately, the powerful and impres-
sive creature youre about to waken
will be less confused than the doctors
sad monster was. Once its conscious
and walking around, youll be virtually
unstoppable. Just make sure you use
your newly awakened might to help oth-
ers, as well as yourself, or the villagers
may come after you and your creation
with torches and pitchforks.
