letter from the editor
Winning feels awesome.
I was the proud recipient of
two Weekender Readers Choice
Awards for Best Columnist/
Writer two years in a row before
I joined the staff here, and before
that, I won three Keystone Press
Awards for my previous news
and feature reporting. I dont
mention this to brag, but to high-
light the fact that, on a day to day
basis, your job can be stressful or
sometimes feel thankless, but at
the end of the day, someone out
there will recognize your hard
work and pat you on the back. I
was both honored and surprised.
Many of the awards The Week-
ender gives out put a spotlight on
these very jobs, professions that
are important but arent always
recognized. Theyre jobs that
require knowledge, skill, and
talent, and these pages are flled
with artists, business owners,
and more that you, our readers,
wanted to see in black and white
(pages 46, 48-49, and 51).
I may see my name in print ev-
ery week, but its still an exciting
feeling for me each time I read it,
awards or not.
But if youve got a plaque with
my name on it, I still have some
space reserved on my wall.

Music
When it comes to style, The
Fallen doesnt exactly fall into
a certain category. Instead, the
band plays a wide variety of
music ranging from metal to pop
to classic rock and everything
in between. Their diversity
makes each song in their set list a
surprise to the audience.
Were actually kind of known
for being one of the bands
thats all over the map, noted
singer Tom Osbourne in a recent
interview with The Weekender.
During a typical show, The
Fallen will take the audience
from a relaxing mood to an
upbeat, dancing mood and back
again, playing everything from
Breaking Benjamin to Pink
Floyd to Cheap Trick.
With two thirds of their set
being cover songs, the band has
left some extra room to create
their own original music. They
will be releasing a full-length CD
of their own within the next few
months.
Our original music, just like
our cover music, is kind of all
over the map. Its not just one
style, explained Osbourne. Its
different than when you buy a
CD and its kind of all the same
stuff, whereas our stuff is so
totally different.
After just nine months of
rehearsing together as a four-
piece, The Fallen has picked up
quite a following as well as a
wide variety of venues including
Tommyboys Bar and Grill
(Nanticoke), Mulligans Sports
& Spirits (Scranton), and Clam
Diggers in Dickson City, where
their next event will be taking
place.
The band will be playing a
beneft event on Sunday, April
28 to raise funds for a woman
who was stuck by drunk driver
in November. Jessie, a single
mother of an autistic child, has
not been able to work since the
accident because of her injuries
and has been struggling to fnd a
way to pay medical expenses.
The Fallen are no strangers
to beneft events and are always
glad to help out someone in
need. They have played many
beneft events in the past and
continue to do so.
We do as many benefts as we
can, said Osbourne. Were just
there to support and help raise
money to pay bills. We do it all
the time for a bunch of different
people.
The beneft will start at 3 p.m.
and all money collected will go
towards Jessie and her family.
The event is sponsored by many
local businesses and will include
live entertainment by Rock Box,
Ashleys Attik, Skin-n-Bones,
Sucker, Pissed and Mizerable,
Tightly Wound, and special guest
Oz . Designated drivers will get
in for free.
I see a lot of people doing
benefts, said Osbourne.
Theyre nothing but good so
just come and have a couple
drinks and listen to some music.

.do you have to do this Saturday night, April 27? Check out one of the areas
newest acts, of course.
Stardog Champion, the band featured in our cover story last week that consists of
former members of Breaking Benjamin, Lifer, and The Drama Club, will hold its debut
and CD release party at Brews Brothers West (75 Main St., Luzerne); doors open at 8
p.m.
Tickets for the 21 and over show are $10, and a free download of their rst single is
still available at theweekender.com.
...can you see the newest location for Sapphire Salon & Spa? Keep your eyes
peeled this fall at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs, where the business will open its
third location, Spa Sapphire.
Spa Sapphire will be located inside the new hotel at the Downs, a location that will
provide luxurious spa services such as massage, facials, manicures, pedicures, and
hair and make-up services, just to name a few.
...knew that such awesome acts were going to be announced for the Rockstar
Energy Uproar Festival? Alice in Chains and Janes Addiction are a pretty good start.
The fourth annual festival will include a bevy of hard-hitting acts. In addition to the
aforementioned, Coheed and Cambria, Circa Survive, Walking Papers, Middle Class
Rut, New Politics, Danko Jones, Chuck Shaffer Picture Show, and the local Ernie Ball
Battle of the Bands competition will also hit the stage.
The show takes place Aug. 9 at the Toyota Pavilion at Montage Mountain. Tickets
go on sale April 25 at noon and will be available at Toyota Pavilion Box Ofce,
Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster outlets, or by-phone at 800-745-3000.

I think its going to be a fun tour and were really
looking forward to it. Its only going to happen that one
time, that way, and youre going to be there.
-Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains
Benet Bash for Jessie with
The Fallen: April 28, 3 p.m. Clam

Even as a Rob Zombie fan, I un-
derstand why hes such a polariz-
ing fgure. Hes one of the reasons
why lazy cynics often claim that
homage is merely the French word
for ripoff and all of his characters
sound like a nerdy 14-year-olds
idea of how a badass should talk.
In essence, Zombie is like every-
ones most negative, ill-informed
opinions about Quentin Tarantino
realized in one person.
But this is exactly why I like
Zombie hes a dumbed down
version of a director who wasnt
all that intellectually stimulat-
ing to begin with. Zombie makes
obnoxious movies for the sullen,
glue-sniffng teenager inside all of
us, and as long as he continues to
make these incredibly loud and stu-
pid movies, my inner burnout will
remain unchallenged and wont
feel the need to set something on
fre. Unfortunately, Zombie grew
as a flmmaker and made the plod-
ding, glacially paced The Lords
of Salem. My inner burnout will
never be the same again.
Its never a good sign when one
of the earliest images you see in a
movie is a white person in dread-
locks. Its an even worse sign when
that white person in dreadlocks
happens to be Sheri Moon-Zombie.
Yes, Mrs. Rob Zombie the actress
horror fans have grown to know
and tolerate stars in The Lords
of Salem as a Salem-based DJ
and recovering addict who comes
across a mysterious record from an
even more mysterious rock group
dubbed The Lords, who, from the
sound of their album, could be
a death metal side project from
Mumford & Sons.
Whenever Zombie listens to
the record, she fashes back to the
fnal days of the Salem witch trials
when nude, elderly women spit on
babies and rubbed something that
I hope is dirt into their withered
witch boobies. Gradually, the
record consumes Zombies life and
shes haunted by the nude witches
in her fashbacks as well as mute,
ashen-faced demons. But is this
really happening or is Zombie just
relapsing and all of this is part of a
drug-induced hallucination? More
importantly, what is the deal with
Satan in this movie? Why is he a
dwarf, and whats up with his cos-
tume? Why does it look like some-
body just propped up a Hefty bag
flled with garden waste in front of
the camera? Are we supposed to
laugh at this or what, exactly?
It should be noted that the fnal
10 minutes of The Lords of
Salem is a surrealistic blast full
of weird day-glo imagery, such as
masturbating, melty-faced bishops
and nude, dumpy women in black
Lucite animal masks. Its an apoca-
lyptic sequence that recalls the ag-
gressive mindlessness of Zombies
earlier flms. But, again, it only
happens in the fnal 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, for the preceding
91 minutes, The Lords of Salem
is an interminable slog. Its a
pretentious, underdeveloped mood
piece that strives for the sophistica-
tion of Roman Polanskis Repul-
sion but is written by a man who
still gives us ridiculous dialogue
like, You cant come in here and
put your nosy ck inside her
head and fk her brain! Theres
a desperation behind The Lords
of Salem. Every single frame of
the movie begs the audience to
recognize how much Zombie has
matured as an artist. But for Zom-
bie, maturing as an artist means
hes now stealing from Stanley
Kubrick and Ken Russell instead
of Herschell Gordon Lewis and old
episodes of The Munsters.
W
The Lords of Salem may have taken Zombie in a different
direction, but it wasnt the right one.

With strong ties to Northeast
Pennsylvania and a solid, oppor-
tunistic home base in New York
City, Leroy Justice unveils its major
label debut, Above The Weather.
The band straddling a fannel n
dusty tube amp fault line between
pentatonic-laden 70s hard rock and
hip, Gavin DeDraw-type songwrit-
ing infection embraces lofty, jam
band-inspired musicianship as easily
as it crafts memorable pop hooks.
The bands goals on Above The
Weather seem boundless. Take a
track like Up on the Mountain,
with a fragile-nerved vocal set to
crisply plucked country/bluegrass
acoustic guitar the listener is
mesmerized by frontman Jason
Gallaghers soft hint of redeemable
mourning until around the 2:55
mark, when the band breaks the si-
lence with a Zeppelin-like thud and
Hammond B-3 gurgle, flling the
remainder of the song with catchier-
than-a-cold na,na,na backing
salvo. The band takes frequent left
turns, always seeming to lead some-
where better than the last.
Blue Eye Blues sounds what
Maroon 5 might deliver with a
bluesy, Bohemian slacker skin
rather than retouched, Top 40 gloss
a great big analog groove with
lightning-fngered guitar courtesy
of Justin Mazer (known to NEPA
fans of MiZ fame). Other standouts
like the After the Gold Rush era,
Neil Young-sounding Watch Him
Fall, take a darker approach with
the storyline of an addict spiraling
into the depths of his own human-
ity (See that man get down, down
on his knees). Through a slew of
tempo changes and emotive crescen-
dos, the band builds up its own mini
Free Bird.
Taking said classic rock endless
jam momentum to the next level is
Before I Die, an eight-minute epic
of Wishbone Ash/Thin Lizzy twin
lead guitar bravado and psychedelic,
Levon Helm-meets-Jack White
Americana anxiety. Memorable is
the single line Gallagher moans post
guitar savagery upon the songs end:
Ive never been insane, but I hope I
go there before I die simply put,
the glorious tight-jeaned, hair-fow-
ing mother of all rock posturing.
Leroy Justice wont be a best kept
secret for long. These guys have
incendiary written all over them
theyll please fans of anything from
Mumford & Sons to Aerosmith
dynamic swagger for days, with
enough indie credibility to get them
through any door.

Bold and fresh with a defnitive but experi-
mental sound, Restorations record LP2,
released April 2, is the punk rock album of
2013 everyone is looking for. LP2 is easily
comparable to something The Menzingers
would make, but is easily set apart in its own
category of musical genius. The lead singers
harsh, made-for-rock vocals paired with
intense guitar riffs and many different blends
of instrumental mastery are smoothed out
by thoughtful and engaging lyrics. However,
the thing that sets this album apart, the thing
that will take this album to the top, lies in the
seemingly effortless organization of its tracks.
D opens the album with a bright and
arousing guitar intro and pulls the listener
in immediately when the vocalist comes in
strong with perfectly choppy lyrics such as
fnding symmetry in the disarray. Moving
through folk, Americana, pure punk rock, and
little bits of many other genres as they blend
and establish their own upbeat unique sound,
it becomes almost impossible to pin a favorite;
rather, it becomes acceptable to have nine new
favorite, jam-worthy songs. The climax of
this album, containing some absolutely poetic
and raw musical moments, comes in the song
New Old. Pure chills radiate off of the halt
in instrumentals, minus guitar, to make way
for the harmony in the lyrics: I am 5, I am
50, I am 15.
This six-minute closure starts off with a
psychedelic intro, maintained subtly under the
remainder of the track, and sums up the entire
album both instrumentally and lyrically. End-
ing the album with a harsh guitar cut off, the
last imperative and crisp statement express-
ing that this record is a production full of
emotional, lyrical, and musical raw moments
coming together to establish something people
will fock to from many crossing genres. This
album breaks a few of those boundaries with-
out getting any glass stuck in their sound, and
it will aid in the undeniable success Restora-
tions will fnd themselves receiving through-
out the remainder of 2013.

An artists debut is always unique. There
are never any expectations from fans, and the
artist is virtually allowed to put together any
collection of songs without any pressure. Alot
of times, the best work shines through; a lot of
fan favorite albums are normally the ones they
frst fell in love with.
Jimmie Deeghan, formally of Every Avenue,
put himself in this exact position. He had a
clean slate, studio time funded by fans through
a Kickstarter campaign, and now a debut
EP titled Cheap Therapy, which will be
released on April 30.
Cheap Therapy has a little bit of every-
thing; Deeghan went in a few different direc-
tions, which makes for a very fulflling listen
all the way through.
Cigarette, the lead-off track, is a great
windows down summer tune with a little bit
of southern twang to it. Its a radio-ready song
flled with enthusiasm and energy. The chorus
arrives quickly and has very relatable lyrics. It
is the perfect frst impression for Deeghan.
Second track Sad and Blue showcases
Deeghans subtle, yet superb guitar work.
Similar to John Mayers Born and Raised
album, there are no face-melting guitar solos,
but the melody from his guitar throughout the
song is tricky to play and catches the listeners
ear.
Hurricane is as much of a ballad as a
song can be, but the dynamics of it are what
make it a good one. The song builds up and
comes down, carrying the listener on a ride
similar to a roller coaster, and when its all
done, you want to go through it all over again.
Good Man seems like it was written for a
movie soundtrack. The lyrics tell a great story,
and Deeghan kills it with his musical dynam-
ics and guitar playing once more.
The entire record has impressive high-
quality production, which is a nice surprise for
a self-released record. The songs do not disap-
point and will leave fans wanting more.
Cheap Therapy is going to carry Deeghan
a long way, and it only begs the question,
What will he release next?

Call it cross-genre encourage-
ment, if you will. When Wilkes-
Barre Americana/roots rock band
No Vacancy releases their proper
debut album, Hop in the Front Seat
of Life, on April 27, know that
the impetus came from an unlikely
source NEPAghoul rock masters
The Curse of Sorrows guitarist, Jay
Bones.
Jay was an old friend of mine
from grade school, explains No Va-
cancy guitarist/vocalist Jim Kindler.
Jay had heard our stuff, and he
liked it. One song in particular on
this record, Lets Get High, Jay
composed some great lead guitar
for it.
Being familiar with No Vacancys
material ranging from the bands
three-piece infancy, some six years
ago when they released an EP, to
their newer material feshed out
for a four-man outft, heavily relying
on vocal harmonies and melodically
intricate song structure Bones
offered, You guys would be selling
yourselves short to not make a full
album.
Hop in the Front Seat of Life is
actually a hook line from the song
Lets Get High, says Kindler.
Thats how it became the title of
our album.
No Vacancy, consisting of Jim
Kindler on guitar and vocals,
Tony Olean on bass/vocals, John
Hindmarsh on drums, and Kevin
Biniek on acoustic rhythm guitar,
offers full-tilt, road-worthy tunes.
While containing the best elements
of a throwdown country music beer
bash, the bands music also has the
emotional depth of artists like Bruce
Springsteen along with the rock n
roll outlaw heart of bands like The
Rolling Stones and The Allman
Brothers Band.
The addition of Biniek was key to
the band fnally clicking. There
was just something missing,
Kindler says until they added the
Binieks acoustic rhythm sec-
tion. It should be also noted that
the bands original drummer, Jims
brother Chuck, laid down a majority
of the new albums drum tracks, but
has since left amicably to pursue
other interests.
Its a very unique blend, says
Kindler of No Vacancys sound.
When we originally started writ-
ing years ago, offers Olean, we
discovered we werent really hitting
it as hard as we could like more of
a Green Day-type sound. We noticed
we were starting to write more in
the style of what we do now music
that lends itself to more of a rhythm
section, slowing it down a little bit,
harmonies, and really focused on the
vocals.
It seemed like magic was made in
the studio, further helping to defne
No Vacancys signature sound. The
guys heaped some high praise upon
the audio gurus as Wyomings JL
Studios, where Hop in the Front
Seat of Life was recorded. They
offer so much to the music, says
Kindler of JLs Joe Loftus and Jay
Preston. Theyre so talented, they
take pride in their work, and they
understand every genre.
If Olean has his way, the band
wont hesitate in using the studio
again.
Were in a tough spot, that we
want to say nice things about Joe
and JL Studios, but we dont want
them to get so busy that they wont
have time for us, he laughs.
Yeah, the experience was so
good that we fnished this album and
Tony and I started writing songs for
the next album, chimes Jim Kindler
with a laugh.
All joking aside, the studio time
allowed for an expansion of the
bands songwriting, and time to ana-
lyze what really works for them mu-
sically. The addition of a guest spot
by local singer/songwriter Jeanne
Zano, in particular, augmented the
fnal product. It would be remiss
not to mention that No Vacancy
will play an album release show on
Saturday, April 27 with Zano at The
Chicken Coop in Wilkes-Barre.
We invited Jeanne to do some
background vocals, Kindler says.
She also ended up doing a duet
with me on a song I had written a
while back that I had nowhere to
go with, so we turned it into a duet.
We also have local legend StingRay
Delpriore doing slide guitar. Then
you talked about the harmonies
you throw a Jeanne Zano into
the mix with Jay Preston, and now
weve got some three-part harmo-
nies, and things really take off.
Kindler and Olean are both
anxious to take the album to the live
stage, where they have been playing
to favorable crowds.
For the most part, its been
great, says Kindler of the bands
shows. As the years go by, it gets
better. Olean adds that as the group
grows into its sound even more, the
shows, in turn, beneft.
It seems like lately, people are
really catching onto our music,
Olean adds. We dont even have
the material out yet, and people are
singing along with us theyre actu-
ally requesting our songs.
With the type of material No
Vacancy plays, theres no room for
an idle foot at their shows every
seat, at some point, will see the butt
rocked out of it.
Ive been told by people that
come to see us, that you feel like
youre at a party at a friends
house, says Olean. They can see
there are four guys on stage having
lots of fun.
We genuinely like being around
each other, adds Kindler. That
translates to people when we put the
music out to them. Even on a break,
theyll see us laughing and joking
around.
Theres lots of positive energy
we pour it on.
Those fans that pick up the new
album, what will they take away
from their listening experience?
Just enjoy it, answers Jim
Kindler. Forget about all thats
been going on lately; get sucked into
it. Alot of the songs on the album
are about just that kicking back,
forgetting about reality for a little
while.
From a writers perspective,
adds Olean, there are stories
painted with lyrics. We dont try too
hard to sound current.
We play from the heart; thats
what its all about for us.

No Vacancy is an Americana/roots rock band that will release
its debut album, Hop in the Front Seat of Life, on April 27.
No Vacancy full of heart
By Mark Uricheck
Weekender Correspondent
It was a night full of country
music at the Kirby Center on
Saturday, April 20 as American
Idol Season 10 champion Scotty
McCreery brought his Weekend
Roadtrip tour to town.
The now 19-year-old singer
mixed his hits in with some
faithful renditions of classic
country songs for his scream-
ing female fans, many of whom
rushed the stage as he sang
Write My Number on Your
Hand. McCreery then took out
a marker and did just that for as
many of them as he could before
the song ended and the girls were
ushered back to their seats.
Many of the songs were from
McCreerys debut album, Clear
As Day, which hit the top of
both the country and pop charts
in late 2011, about fve months
after his American Idol tri-
umph.
Early highlights included his
Idol coronation song, I Love
You This Big, Walk in the
Country, the ballad Dirty Dish-
es, and Water Tower Town,
complete with video images of
his hometown of Garner, N.C.
McCreery, dressed all in
black with a very visible silver
cross around his neck, seemed
genuinely humble as he told
the audience about going to
Milwaukee on a family vacation
in 2010 and ending
up the American
Idol champion. He
also told a humorous
story about going
to Los Angeles and
battling with the
shows producers
to do country songs
instead of the latest
by Lady Gaga.
And now I get to
do this every night,
McCreery, who goes
to college three days
a week, said. Lots
of performers say
they have the fans to
thank, but I truly do.
You all voted for
me, so thank you.
After playing
some new songs
from an as-yet-
untitled new album,
including Suntan
- a defnite summer anthem in
the making - McCreery saluted
many of his musical heroes,
including Garth Brooks, George
Strait, Hank Williams Sr., Johnny
Cash, and Elvis Presley.
Standouts from the tribute
section included a few bars of
Thats Alright Mama followed
by T-R-O-U-B-L-E, which was
a hit by both Elvis and Travis
Tritt, which ended his main set
on a high note.
McCreery and his band
members sang some nice, close
harmony on Ralph Stanleys
Man of Constant Sorrow as he
introduced them, and later in the
evening, McCreery scored big
with a version of Jamey John-
sons In Color.
At times the arena-scaled
production seemed too big for
the comfy theater; the frst few
numbers had the fve-piece
band drowning out McCreerys
distinctive deep voice. But after
the tweaks were worked out,
McCreery hit his stride and took
the small but very enthusiastic
crowd along for the ride.
Saturdays concert was opened
by another TV show veteran as
Sarah Darling, who frst came
to national attention in 2003 on
a show called The Entertainer
hosted by Wayne Newton, turned
in a nice 30-minute set.
Later in the evening, Darling
came out to join McCreery for a
really nice rendition of Brooks
The Dance.

Ralph Saenz is better known
by his stage name, Michael Starr,
and for good reason he lives and
breathes that persona as the front-
man for 80s heavy metal parody
group Steel Panther.
Theyre funny, but their music is
no joke, ranking on the Billboard
Comedy charts and opening for
Def Leppard and Mtley Cre.
While sipping his morning coffee
last week, Starr recalled the bands
previous night in Boston just days
after the tragic bombing of the
Boston Marathon before chatting
with The Weekender about hair,
girls, and playing on the moon
before their concert at the Sherman
Theater on April 26.
MICHAELSTARR: We had a
show in Boston, which was pretty
epic, man, because a couple days
ago they had that tragedy. We were
all pretty nervous about doing a
show there so close to that happen-
ing, but it turned out to be fantastic,
man. It was a great show. We were
up pretty late having a good time
afterward.
We talked about it just a little bit
right in the opening monologue of
our show, and then we didnt talk
about it after that, but once we got
rid of that big elephant in the room,
everyone was just able to let loose
and have a great time. It was cool.
THE WEEKENDER: What is
it about the 80s that sticks with
you and Steel Panther?
MS: I was born in 65, so by
the time I was conscious of what
was going on in rock, everybody
had long hair in the 70s, so to me,
having long hair was just the way it
was. And then in the 80s, everyone
actually shaped and cut their hair
and made it look really cool, and
shaved the beards off, and I was
like, This is way better! You get
way more chicks this way. And
man, I just love that genre of music
because it just encompasses every-
thing that I think is fun. Partying is
fun, being with chicks is killer, and
rocking out is even more fun. You
put them all together and its like
going to Disneyland every day of
the week.
If youre into Disneyland. Im
not really into Disneyland. If
Disneyland is your thing, than god
dang it, Steel Panther is your band.
W: How does your music still
connect with people today?
MS: Well, No. 1, its really fun,
its catchy, and we actually talk
about st that people I wouldnt
say that theyre afraid to talk
about but when you sit with your
parents, you dont want to start tell-
ing them all about the Asian hooker
you were with the night before,
but Steel Panther gives that. We
just talk about st that really is
important to you and what youre
thinking anyway, and we just put it
out straight on the table I think
people really enjoy that straightfor-
ward f-g rock.
Subjects that we pick to sing
about are stuff that most bands
wouldnt sing about just because
its something that theyve never
done, or I dont know why. When
youre sitting at Starbucks and
youre trying to have a conversa-
tion with somebody, you dont start
talking about Asian hookers with
them. We do.
W: Does that honesty come
naturally?
MS: Alot of people just go,
Oh, youre just trying to do it for
the shock value, but the reality
is everything that we sing about
is st that weve done or expe-
rienced. Even when were not on
stage, were having a good time
laughing with each other and
just f-g around. What weve
been able to do is take that, those
personalities, and put them in the
music, and I think thats what
people are drawn to because when
you come to see our show, were
not staring at our shoes. Youre not
going to come and see a bunch of
shoe gazers. We are in your face,
we want your response, we want to
connect with you, and I think its
just great to party.
W: How competitive is the
band in the heavy metal music
scene?
MS: Were extremely competi-
tive. I like to relate ourselves to
like an NFL team we all want to
get those stats, but we all know, no
matter how much money we make
individually, weve got to come
together as a team and have one
goal and be aligned. For us, its not
just to go to the Super Bowl, its to
go win the Super Bowl. For us, we
want to be the biggest band in the
f-g world, and were not going
to stop until we do that, and were
going to do it.
Im not just talking about genre;
Im talking about the whole world,
maybe the biggest band ever.
Maybe, how about the frst band to
play on the moon? You ever think
about that? I mean, it would have
to be in an airtight place with a
gravity machine for people to hear
whats going on, but itd be killer.
W: What is the best part about
being in a rock band?
MS: The best part about being
a lead singer in a rock band, for
me, is that I get the most p-y.
Its a default thing. Its like every
heavy metal band, if you think
about it: the guitar player and the
lead singer are the most important
guys in the band. You dont
really remember the drummer,
so by default. (Guitarist) Satchel
usually gets the smart chicks. Im
not down for chicks who can out-
smart me I just want to be with
someone that doesnt make me feel
dumb, you know what I mean?
Its easier that way, especially a
wounded one, someone that maybe
just broke up with a guy. Because
then theyre not sure, like, Should
I do this? I dont know. And then I
can talk them into it and I feel like
Ive conquered.
W: Whats the worst part?
MS: P-y. Some of it is really
annoying. Like some girls, man, I
dont know what the fk some of
these girls are eating, but man, just
a bit of advice if youre reading
this brush your teeth before you
come to the show and drink a half
gallon of Listerine. Thats all Im
asking.
W: Why did you name this
the Spreading the Disease (STD)
Tour?
MS: We thought it was pretty
accurate for what we do. Every-
body in the band has herpes, so if
were broken out, were actually
living up the name of the tour. And
also I remember we were sitting
in a record label or a management
company that we were trying to get
signed to and theyre like, You
guys are like a disease, man you
never go away! And were like,
Its true, man. We are spreading
the disease. We are never going
away. Theres people that love us
or hate us theres nobody in the
middles that goes, Yeah, I kind of
like Steel Panther. Everybody has
a strong opinion of us.
Thats the best place to be, man.
None of this f-g middle, 3
Doors Down st. You want to be
fg hated or loved.

When young Patricks father
dies, he goes to live with a most
famboyant relative, someone
who believes in embracing life
with both hands.
Life is a banquet, shell say,
and most poor suckers are starv-
ing to death.
Come to the stage play Auntie
Mame at the Dietrich Theater in
Tunkhannock, director Jennifer
Jenkins said, and youll meet
all the wonderfully eccentric
and colorful characters who are
Mames friends, people like Vera
Charles, the English actress
from Pittsburgh, who is passed
out at a party when Patrick frst
meets her.
Generous Mame does love to
throw parties, and most of her
guests are grown-ups who might
use some unusual words and
phrases.
She gives Patrick a little
notebook and says Im going to
take you around and introduce
you to people, and if you hear
any words you dont understand,
you can write them down and
well talk about them later. Its a
brilliant thing to do for a 10-year-
old, Jenkins said.
Later, hell reveal hes written
Lysistrata, bathtub gin and
free love.
You can understand why some
people might think Auntie Mame
is not a good infuence on Patrick
even though he adores her.
Unfortunately, there is a bank
trustee who sends him off to a
boarding school when Mame is
traveling the world with her new
husband, Jenkins said. This will
put Patrick in danger of becom-
ing a stuffy-banker, Connecticut
type.
It will be up to Mame to help
Patrick return to the kind of
wonderful person who would
write a book about his aunt.
The story is based on a true
one, Jenkins said, and it follows
Mame and Patrick Dennis from
1929 through the Depression to
1946.
One of my favorite moments
is Christmas 1929, right after the
market crashes. Its really sweet
to see how Mame,even though
shes lost everything, shows her
love for her family, which con-
sists of Patrick, her housekeeper
and her butler.

Heide Klum is the newest Americas Got Talent judge.
Klum gets candid,
Llyod breaks the mold
Singer Melanie Brown is best
known as a member of the Spice
Girls. Howie Mandel and Howard
Stern both have backgrounds in
comedy and acting. But the fourth
judge on this upcoming season
of Americas Got Talent, Heidi
Klum, is mostly known as a host
and model.
Being in entertainment for 20
years, seeing a lot of things Ive
been grooming models in Ger-
many. I do Tyras (Banks) show
(Americas Next Top Model)
in Germany, Klum explained
to me during a red carpet media
event for the show in Rockefeller
Plaza. You have to be a little bit
of an entertainer, an actress, when
youre a model. You cant just
stand there.
Klum was married to a singer,
Seal, for eight years, but also has
a little bit of a performance back-
ground herself. Before coming to
America, the Project Runway
star danced professionally in
Germany.
Its hard to crush someones
feelings, especially when were
crunched on time, she said. I
want to say more to send them
away, and sometimes you have to
be really quick, and then it hurts
my feelings to hurt someone elses
feelings.
Despite the acclimation period
for Klum to judging a talent com-
petition, she insists that she hasnt
asked for help or relied on the
other judges. Once auditions are
over the judges will return to New
York, a place that Klum knows
all too well, having lived in the
city for 13 years as a model. Yet,
the judge was adamant that she
wont be able to hit up any of her
favorite spots around town.
Im going to bed, because Im
doing this all again tomorrow,
said Klum of her work day, which
can run from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. A
girl needs her beauty rest.
Americas Got Talent pre-
mieres June 4 on NBC.
CHER LLOYD DITCHING
BUBBLEGUMPRINCESS
MONIKER
Cher Lloyd is known in the
United States as a pop princess
due to her hit single, Want U
Back. Judging by that song,
youd never know that Lloyd
auditioned for The X-Factor in
the UK with Keri Hilsons Turn
My Swag On.
This is the time that I want to
bring pop and urban right together,
and make it work, Lloyd told
The Ralphie Show. I dont feel
that Im going to be a bubblegum
princess anymore. That Chers
gone.
Lloyd revealed she is currently
changing her sound while record-
ing her follow-up to the album
Sticks + Stones. Meanwhile, the
second single from that LP is the
track With Ur Love.
Its a very cheeky song, the
singer remarked. Its catchy. I
want all the kids to be singing
along to it.
It sounds though as if those
catchy songs may be limited on
Lloyds sophomore effort. The
singer is working with different
producers this time and may col-
laborate with more hip hop artists
for her new sound. Rapper Juicy
J is featured on a remix for With
Ur Love.

night on 97 BHT.

Thank you to
the best friends
and fans for
voting us Best
Original Band
this year!
We truly
appreciate it.
Her raspy voice, much like her
brash demeanor, is unmistakable.
So when Joan Rivers gets on
the phone and tells you youve
called her three hours early, you
cant help but feel a bolt of fear
rip through your body.
Thankfully, despite her well-
known tough attitude, shes also
pretty understanding and was
more than happy to disregard the
blunder, launching into an easy
banter about life in show busi-
ness.
Rivers will take the stage at the
F.M. Kirby Center on April 27 at
8 p.m. to do that very thing in her
lecture My Life in Show Busi-
ness: 135 Years and Counting.
The comedian, TV personality,
writer, director and actress has
actually been in the entertainment
industry for the past 46 years,
which for some, may mean the
end of the rope. This certainly
isnt the case for Rivers, with
whom one can barely get out the,
When will you know its time to
quit? question without her shoot-
ing back a rock solid answer.
Never, she said, and why
should I? If I love what I do, why
should I? I have (E! Entertain-
ment show) Fashion Police,
(WE TV show that features her
daughter as well) Joan and Me-
lissa the reality show, and now
I have inbedwithjoan.com. Im
thrilled. Things are getting bigger
and better. No, no, no no such
thing as retiring.
Rivers is widely known for her
opinionated nature, never shying
away from letting anybody know
exactly whats on her mind. Some
view her as incredibly mean, but
Rivers said its not that at all.
I am a critic. The way a the-
ater critic tells you what he thinks
of a play, I tell you what I think of
peoples clothes, etc. I dont lie.
Im not going to say, Oh so-and-
so looked gorgeous, if she didnt
whats the point? People know
that whatever I tell them is my
truth. It might not be their truth,
but at least Im not bullstting
them.
Im not mean. What I do obvi-
ously has worked for 46 years
and people that make 20 million
a movie dont seem to mind if
I dont like their fruity dress
that theyre never going to wear
again.
And what of the people who
are also critics, but of Rivers
herself?
People fre back, yes. Abso-
lutely. When I said that Justin
Bieber looked like a lesbian, all
the little Bieberites fred back at
me, and thats the fun of things.
Though it may seem that her
comedic style focuses on harping
on others, one of Rivers biggest
targets is herself, evident in her
2012 book I Hate Everyone
Starting with Me.
Thats what humor is, she
said when asked why she takes
aim at herself. Humor is pok-
ing fun at everything. Even this
lecture that Im doing about show
business and the anecdotes, its
funny. Everything should be
laughed at in life. Were in a very
bad moment; we have the North
Koreans, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan
we could get blown off the face
of the earth. If you dont laugh,
youre an idiot.
Fast and furious opinions:
On why shes stayed in the en-
tertainment industry for so long:
I love the business. Im one
of the lucky people that loves
exactly what they do and Im very
lucky to be doing it and, my God,
everything is just going great.
On the red carpet:
Theres always someone,
thank God, that looks terrible, and
theres always someone that looks
amazing. The fun is when they
do both. Tilda Swinton went from
looking truly just, like, a crazy
lady, to being the best dressed.
On fashion itself:
Fashion should be silly, fash-
ion should be fun, and it should
be Oh, look what Im wearing
and Im having a good time
wearing it, rather than, (lowers
voice to a serious tone) This is
fashion.
On working with her daughter
Melissa and whether its hard to
separate business and family:
Its both. I think a mother
and a daughter working closely
together is very diffcult and its
also amazing because we under-
stand each other, and were very
frank with each other. I trust her.
Shes an incredible interviewer,
shes an amazing executive
producer, and thats why I think
Fashion Police is fying now
because shes so good. Shes so
good at it.
On her newest venture, inbed-
withjoan.com:
All I do is sit in bed and talk
to comedians. They come and sit
in bed with me, and you know
you never tell anybody the truth
the way you do when youre sit-
ting on a bed with them.

If youve ever seen Fred
Tallaksen somersault as he zips
along on inline skates, you
might wonder if he spent his
youth wheeling around the hills
of Scranton, where he grew up.
No, the award-winning
choreographer said with a
laugh. I did spend lots of time
at the roller rink, but I was
a dancer and singer before I
learned how to do all kinds of
crazy stunts.
Nowadays, he designs move-
ment, including some crazy
stunts, for performers as diverse
as dancers and musicians, aeri-
alists and cheerleaders, BMX
riders and skateboarders and
even an entire circus.
If you attend the Ringling
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
show in Wilkes-Barre Town-
ship this weekend, youll see
his work.
The Northeastern Pennsyl-
vania native is the man behind
the big production numbers and
even the way the two clowns,
Anton and Victor, propel
forward the arc of the circus
Fully Charged story.
Anton keeps stealing the
power, pulling the plug on the
lights and causing all kinds of
mischief, Tallaksen said. He
learns you cant hog all the
energy for yourself. You have to
learn to share.
Tallaksen has enjoyed shar-
ing the limelight ever since his
student days, when a part in the
musical Pippin convinced
him he really didnt want to go
into medicine (an earlier ambi-
tion) or computer science (his
major feld at the University of
Scranton).
Dance teacher Gail Ercoli of
Jessup was the Pippin chore-
ographer and convinced Tallak-
sen he had the talent to become
a successful professional.
She really believed in
me and helped me believe in
myself, said Tallaksen, who
returned to Scranton this week
for a hometown visit and to take
his mother, Catherine Tallaksen,
to the show.
His mom and his late father,
also named Fred Tallaksen, had
envisioned a different kind of
career for their son but later
were happy for him as he gar-
nered success.
Tallaksen has worked one on
one with Ma-
donna and has
coached a multi-
tude of celebrities,
including Selena
Gomez, Gwyneth
Paltrow, Enrique
Iglesias, David
Spade, Valerie
Bertinelli, Marisa
Tomei, Queen
Latifah, and many
others.
Hes been liv-
ing on the West
Coast for several
years but is now
considering a
move to New
York, he said.
Whats next?
Maybe Broad-
way, he said.

Local choreographer
runs off to join the circus

Special to the Weekender
There was standing room only
at an informational seminar,
How to Produce an Independent
Film, by the co-creators of The
Pennsylvania Film School April
8 at the Scranton Cultural Center
at the Masonic Temple.
The Pennsylvania Film School
is the vision of Scranton natives,
flmmakers, and entrepreneurs
Joe Van Wie and Tim Calpin,
who have partnered with the
Scranton Cultural Center at the
Masonic Temple and JVW, Inc.
Van Wie and Calpin are offer-
ing students hands-on instruc-
tion through courses held over a
two-week period. The inaugural
classes are part of a broad fve-
year plan, according to Van Wie.
Wed love to see a school
here permanently that teaches the
trade of flmmaking as a busi-
ness, he said.
In the meantime, topics to be
covered include April 25, Below
the Line: Camera, Lighting and
Sound; April 30, The Look and
Aftermath: Design and Post-
Production; and May 2, Show
Business: Financing, Legal, Sales
and Distribution. Classes will run
from 6 to 9 p.m. in Shopland Hall
at the Scranton Cultural Center.
The nuts and bolts can be
taught, and there are some things
creatively that we can touch
upon, added Calpin.
Their mission, according to
Van Wie, is to bring students
behind the scenes and teach them
how to get your flm produced
and then, from that point, the
school will be a mecca and a
home to capitalize on and grow
the existing talents here You
can have a $20 million script,
but youve only raised $150,000.
How do you shoot that flm? This
is what this school will teach
you.
Van Wie is CEO of JVW, Inc.,
a Scranton frm specializing in
corporate marketing, web design,
quantitative research, and politi-
cal advertising, and it is also well
known for his role as flmmaker
and producer. His credits include
The Paragon Cortex, executive
producer on the movie Forged,
and associate producer of La
Soga. His awards include the
HBO International Film Festival
Best Picture 2010; LALatino
Film Festival Offcial Selec-
tion 2010; Toronto International
Film Festival Offcial Selec-
tion 2009; Santo Domingo
International Film Festival Best
Picture 2009; Providence
International Film Festival Best
Picture 2011; and the American
Association of Political Con-
sultants Pollie Award Best Ad
2011.
Calpin is a screenwriter and
producer whose credits include
Comedy Centrals South Park
and the indie feature Assassina-
tion of a High School President.
He studied flm and TV produc-
tion at Syracuse University,
pursued a career in entertainment
in Los Angeles, and has spent a
decade writing, producing, and
directing scripts, shorts, and
TV pilots for studios, including
Warner Bros., Fox, Paramount,
and Lionsgate.
Regarding the turnout at
the informational seminar, Joe
Peters, executive director for the
the Scranton Cultural Center,
said, The size of the turnout
was a pleasant surprise, and just
the mixture we were looking to
attractyoung and old, students,
and the more experienced. People
who love flm, those who aspire
to the art form, as well as those
whom have worked in flmmak-
ing, made for a great discussion
during the presentation. It was
especially heartening to see the
varied experience and interests
in the audience, from camera
work to sound and, importantly,
writing.
Van Wie and Calpin are also
actively pursuing a permanent
site for the school , with a stage,
theater, possible equipment,
rental house, and more.
Were really excited that a
number of local colleges and uni-
versities have already looked at
the flm school to try to get it into
their communications programs.
This will give the students of the
trade school the ability to learn
hands-on. Its not every day this
area has an opportunity to start a
new school, and we believe we
will be flling a need for people
along the East Coast, Van Wie
said.

TANNING SALON!
Its fashy outfts. Its bright
lights, numerous props, human
fesh, laughter, and dance.
Its burlesque.
Burlesque is an art form thats
been around for centuries, and, in
the modern age, is seen as a type
of theatrical variety show aimed
at entertaining through dance,
song, and performance art. New
Orleans Drag Diva Bianca Del
Rio will host The Best of New
York Burlesque, which comes
to the Mount Airy Casino April
27.
Del Rio will be joined by
a gaggle of New Yorks best
performers, including contortion-
ists, acrobats, comedians, and
dancers.
Dirty Martini, also known by
what she jokes is sometimes re-
ferred to as her slave name of
Linda Marraccini, is a Southern
Jersey-born girl who now lives
in New York that stumbled upon
the art of burlesque in 1995 after
spending some time in the city
auditioning and dancing every-
where she could.
We caught up with Martini
as she was just leaving a photo
shoot for a story on burlesque to
be featured in the New Yorker,
a testament to the fact that the
oft-forgotten art is making a
comeback.
THE WEEKENDER: What
made you gravitate towards
burlesque, after all that time as
a dancer?
DIRTYMARTINI: After
all the auditioning and danc-
ing when I got to New York, I
thought that I would really like
to choreograph something for
myself and base it around the
drag world that I loved so much.
I started looking at these flms of
old burlesque dancers. I thought
about the different shapes and
sizes of the women, the differ-
ent nationalities of the women,
and how glorifed their glamor
was, but kind of kitschy and
funny at the same time. I created
a fan dance, a classic strip tease
routine, and pulled it together
with a fast coda at the end; it was
all in fve minutes. That was my
frst performance, and it was like,
Well where do I go from here?
W: Was it hard to get off the
ground by performing such a
niche form of art?
DM: It turned out there was a
handful of people in New York
City that were doing experimen-
tal theater, performance art, and a
couple like myself doing kitschy
pin-up stuff, so we banded
together and started doing shows.
We didnt really care about be-
ing famous. I mean, I really still
dont care about that; I just want
to work. I want to be creative
and, most of all, shed light on the
forgotten past of the womens
strip tease.
W: How would you describe
burlesque as it is in todays
world?
DM: In this generation, its
kind of more than a retro look
back on what was. Its now a
re-framing of what women are
now. Its done in a theatrical way
in venues ranging from theaters
to night clubs to bars, and the
performances are little short
pieces that tell something about
the performer, and usually each
performer is very individualistic
and guards their individuality
very tightly.
W: What is your stage per-
sona like?
DM: Id say its an extension
of who I am in life: a classically
trained burlesque dancer. I do
some performance art as well,
depending on my mood and the
venue.
W: Youve traveled all over,
performed in so many venues
whats your favorite moment
of your career?
DM: Honestly, my favorite
moment is just sitting backstage
with other like-minded crazy
people and cooking up shows or
even talking about the weather.
We have such a good time back-
stage, and, generally, burlesque
is an incredibly supportive art
form; were always cheering
each other on. We have a great
time together, and I think it trans-
lates to the stage.
W: Burlesque is still a bit out
of the mainstream. Whats a
common misconception among
people who dont know much
about it?
DM: The main thing is that
most people, if they look at the
word burlesque - and this is
because it came to mean top-
less bars in the late 70s and
early 80s - its often equated
with stripping and strip clubs.
Because of the theatricality of
the burlesque and because of
the fact that its womens voices
speaking, saying what they want
to say rather than things that are
controlling women to say on
stage, its different. Its all about
a shift of perspective.
W: What can people expect
from Fridays show?
DM: If they dont know what
to expect, they should keep
an open mind and be ready to
laugh, cheer, have a good time,
and maybe be inclined to drink
a little booze. I know I enjoy
champagne with my burlesque.

FRIDAY 5/3
FLAXY MORGAN
We may not be seeing a Zombieland sequel any time soon
but Amazon may pick up a television series based on the
movie.
Zombieland resurrected as
series with (some) potential
Why is it that when audiences
clamor for a sequel, they never get
it, but when a follow-up couldnt
be more pointless, Hollywood cant
wait to produce a whole series of
them?
As Scary Movie 5 mercifully
begins to leave theaters, we are still
waiting for word on Zombieland
2. The frst flm, released in 2009,
was a surprise hit, becoming one of
the top grossing zombie flms of all
time even though it was more of a
comedy than a horror fick. Though
that may be what gave it its edge
(basically an Americanized Shaun
of the Dead), it was a loving send-
up of the genre that still contained
suspenseful, emotional, and gory
moments, granting it a broader
appeal. Everyone involved seemed
ready for a second installment
almost immediately, but produc-
tion continued to stall until talk of
it died off like the last remaining
human on Earth.
In its place, writers Rhett Reese
and Paul Wernick discussed the
possibility of a TV adaptation, as
the original flm was pitched as a
show. After AMCs The Walk-
ing Dead premiered in 2010, one
would think that a Zombieland
program would be a natural green
light, but again, the idea shambled
and festered. Then, out of nowhere,
a trailer emerged online Ama-
zon had ordered a pilot episode
amongst a collection of other
shows for its frst wave of original
programming. Unlike its com-
petitor, Netfix, Amazon released a
series of pilots and asked viewers
which shows they would like to see
picked up. With a built-in fan base,
Zombieland seemed like the
obvious frontrunner, but that trailer
killed fervor faster than a falling
piano from a church window.
Despite having Reese and Wer-
nick writing with the director of the
very funny horror comedy Tucker
& Dale vs. Evil at the helm, the
edginess and unpredictability of
the original seemed substituted for
cheesy jokes and even cheesier pro-
duction values. Also replaced were
the main actors Jesse Eisenberg,
Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin
were swapped out for cheaper loo-
kalikes while Woody Harrelsons
stand-in couldnt even pass for his
stunt double. This would be pass-
able for a fan-made venture, but it
seemed beneath a large company
like Amazon trying to make a
good frst impression on potential
customers.
When they released the frst
half-hour episode for free, however,
I decided to give it a shot. It wasnt
nearly as bad as the preview had
made it out to be, but like most pi-
lots, its going to need some work if
its going to persist in this survival
of the fttest.
It starts off on the right foot,
focusing on two self-centered of-
fce workers clueless to the chaos
outside theyre the frst type of
people to go in a setting like this,
and its satisfying to watch. Tal-
lahassee, who Woody played like a
fun-loving redneck, is portrayed by
newcomer Kirk Ward as a lowly of-
fce employee fnally able to release
his pent-up aggression, and while
Im all for actors making estab-
lished roles their own (see Mads
Mikkelsen in NBCs Hannibal),
it seems odd to change the fan-
favorite, Twinkie-loving hillbilly
this much so early in the game,
especially since it seems like the
show is a direct continuation of the
movie.
Ward is more sitcom dad funny
than movie star funny, and even
though Maiara Walsh (Wichita)
and Tyler Ross (Columbus), also
our narrator, banter back and forth
like the fast-paced dialogue of the
source material, it feels too much
like scripted Must See TV with
passable-looking zombies and CGI
thrown in. The shot on a back
studio lot feel is hard to shake,
particularly following the high
production values of The Walk-
ing Dead, but it does its best of
reminding us this is Zombieland
by reiterating Columbus rules
for survival throughout the episode
along with the humorous Zombie
Kill of the Week, both memorable
highlights of the flm version.
One glaring mistake, however, is
the lack of Rule No. 2: the double
tap. There are a few times the
group kills a zombie and walks
away without fnishing the job,
which shows how rushed this is in
general. By the time they establish
the romantic tension between our
20-something characters, young
Izabela Vidovic (Little Rock) is
left with nothing but a few fller
lines. To its credit, it tackles a lot in
30 minutes as it carries a running
gag (everyone they hope to join
up with immediately dies), but
the convenient addition of a lone
OnStar employee helping them
locate survivors across the country
amongst other unnecessary product
placement bogs down what could
be the next Buffy the Vampire
Slayer of movie adaptations if it
tries it could also be Ferris Buel-
ler or Weird Science if its not
careful.
The consistently energetic Ward,
I think, could grow on me if given
the right script to work with, and if
a few more unpredictable moments
along with some odd celebrity
cameos were tossed in, the gags
would go from slight chuckle to
slack-jawed guffaw in no time;
pilots rarely resemble the series
they spawn, after all. The best
Walking Dead episodes feel like
small flms, so if Zombieland can
cardio its way away from television
tedium towards cinematic pacing
with a backbone of solid jokes, it
may be worth Amazons approval.
I wouldnt green light 12 episodes,
but six? Ill fash the yellow light of
cautious optimism.
Would we have been better off
with a movie sequel? Sure, but you
take what you can get in the end
times of entertainment. In the days
when Scary Movie 6 seems inevi-
table, this show could be a hero.

Six Years
Harlan Coben
Rating: W W W W
Secret lives
Imagine meeting the love
of your life and, for reasons
beyond your control, he or she
slips away in an instant. Six
years later, fate brings you back
together. Unfortunately, this
second chance comes at a great
cost.
Thus begins Harlan Cobens
latest novel, Six Years, a book
that navigates through a com-
plicated path of love and deceit.
While Coben is notable for both
series and singular works, his
newest novel stands alone.
In the work, protagonist
Jake Fisher meets and falls in
love with Natalie. Initially, she
appears to be picture-perfect.
Naturally, Jake comes to the re-
alization that Natalie is the only
woman he could ever want. As
readers grow to understand their
relationship, we become most
connected to Jake through his
sincere affability and endeavors
to satisfy Natalie. Natalie, on
the other hand, is a much more
complicated character.
While seemingly genuine
at frst, Natalies life story is a
twisted one. As a result, she is
forced to make an immediate
decision to leave Jake. He is not
only upset, but also astonished
to fnd that Natalie chooses
another man. Within a short time
Natalie is married to the man,
and it is during the reception
that Jake decides it is best to ac-
cept Natalies new life.
Following the reception, Nata-
lie requests that Jake no longer
contact her and, attempting to
move forward, Jake regrettably
agrees. I would do as Natalie
asked. I would leave her alone.
I would think about her every
day, but Id never call or reach
out or even look her up online. I
would keep my promise. For six
years.
As time passes, readers fnd
Jake still nursing his heartache.
He may be focusing on his
career as a political science
professor, but he has yet to ac-
cept that his greatest love has
seemingly come and gone. Jake
makes attempts to pick up the
pieces, but he simply cannot.
Soon, however, Jake is given a
second chance.
Six years after Jake made that
promise to leave Natalie alone,
he comes across an obituary for
Natalies husband. Jake makes
an informed decision to attend
the funeral but, once there, he
is caught by surprise. The love
of his life is not the Natalie he
knew. In fact, it is not Natalie
at all.
As Jake attempts to discover
what has actually transpired
over the course of those six
years, the more he realizes he
never knew Natalie at all. Still,
he refuses to give up on love.
The story then unfolds and
develops into a breakneck ride
of suspense.
Six Years is a dazzling work
of art full of love, corruption,
and absolution. While complex,
each detail within the novel is
precise, moving toward a faw-
less conclusion.

Many bands are instantly
recognizable for their sound, but
when it comes to the Grateful
Dead or The Allman Brothers
Band, the imagery that adorns
their albums and merchandise
may be just as iconic.
Thats where artists like
Michael DuBois come in. The
50-year-old Woodstock, N.Y.,
resident worked his way up from
drawing posters for local bands in
his home state to commissioned
tour merchandise for Santana, All-
man Brothers, Grateful Dead, The
Wailer, Hot Tuna, and more.
He personally worked with
The Bands Levon Helm on the
Grammy Award-winning Electric
Dirt in 2009, Helms fnal studio
album before his passing.
I am inspired by the music.
I usually try to work for bands
whose music I like, and that gives
me inspiration to do that work as
well as getting paid for it, which
gives you more inspiration. But
sometimes they have a concept
and sometimes they dont, which
is nice because sometimes they
give you the freedom to present
something, and if they like it, then
they go with it, or maybe theres
a little change made. Most of the
time these days, they give me
the freedom to present things,
DuBois said.
He will be one of 10 differ-
ent artists showing their work
on The Grateful Gallery Tour,
which makes its frst stop at the
Old Farmers Ball at the Toyota
Pavilion at Montage Mountain on
Saturday, May 11. The traveling
art gallery, featuring concert post-
ers and other work from artists in
the music scene, is organized by
John Warner, a fellow artist who
met DuBois at the Gathering of
the Vibes festival in Connecticut,
which, along with a satellite gal-
lery, inspired the creation of The
Grateful Gallery.
Currently living in Allentown,
the 40-year-old was born in Bing-
hamton, N.Y., and has worked
around the country as a concert
promoter and club manager, creat-
ing posters for his own shows
and developing his art career
while serving as a booking agent.
He has created merchandise for
Further, Allman Brothers, Warren
Haynes, Citizen Cope, Govt
Mule, and for festivals like the
upcoming Peach Festival, also at
the Toyota Pavilion in Scranton,
where The Grateful Gallery will
be installed as well.
Warners relationship with Old
Farmers Ball headliner Cabinet
began when he discovered the
band on Myspace and invited
them to play the Hop BottomArts
and Music Festival in 2008; he
has since illustrated a series of
Wizard of Oz-themed posters
for the group and became the
inaugural Balls vending coordi-
nator.
Both Warner and DuBois have
reached a point in their careers
where they only work for musi-
cians they listen to, and fans may
be drawn to the work because its
created by fellow fans.
These days, I really dont
work on much that Im new to, I
guess. I really have to be familiar
with the content before I consider
working with somebody anyway,
Warner said. Ive got to like your
band; Ive got to be a fan to work
on your stuff.
They also appreciate the arts
collectability.
Acommemorative show
poster is important because its an
artifact of history. The show hap-
pened, you have this commemora-
tive piece of artwork, which is not
a digital print or a throwaway type
of print its a hand silk-screened
piece of artwork which becomes
collectible. Theres a huge market
for this stuff, Warner continued,
saying that limited editions go
pretty quick.
I have fans that collect my
work. It doesnt matter who I do
work for; they just like my work
and they collect it. They are very
interested in purchasing these
types of things, and this is really
what this market is targeted to, the
collector and the fans of the band
the real fans of the band.
And even though its the digital
age, DuBois said he receives more
work than ever.
Actually, in the last 10 years,
because albums have gone away,
there has been a big resurgence
in music posters, and its become
an important revenue source for
bands, especially bands that tour
because, as you probably know,
theyre not making the revenue
on record sales like they used to,
he noted. But, they are making
money with posters and t-shirts
and things they take on tour with
them.
Another featured artist in The
Grateful Gallery, AJ Masthay,
is also a printmaker at Masthay
Studios in West Hartford , Conn.,
with clients like Furthur, Wide-
spread Panic, Umphreys McGee,
Bob Weir, Disco Biscuits, and
more. He will be showcasing his
distinctive linoleum block print
process at the Old Farmers Ball.
Ive been drawing my whole
life, but I frst fell in love with
printmaking back in my college
days at the Hartford Art School. I
loved the idea of creating multiple
copies of a work while each
retains its status as an original
piece; its a great way to produce
a work of art and be able to sell
them to an audience at an afford-
able price, he recalled.
I primarily focused on stone
lithography back then. It wasnt
until I frst got into the gig poster
world that I fully dove into my
unique form of letterpress and be-
gan piecing my studio together.
His passion for handcrafted
work is one that is shared by all
the featured artists in the Ball,
including William Giese, J Rizzi,
Nick Clemente, Bill Orner, Matt
Hiller, and local photographers Ja-
son Riedmiller and Jim Gavenus.
I love handcrafted objects,
things that were obviously made
with love. I dont care if its a
print, clothing, a meal at a restau-
rant, whatever when something
is made with love by a true arti-
san, it stands out. I have nothing
against digital work, but I still
love getting down and dirty with
my carving tools and getting ink
under my fngernails. The results
just cant be replicated any other
way. My prints have a certain look
and feel in person, and due to the
oil-based inks I use, they have
a certain smell to them that col-
lectors always comment on, in a
good way, Masthay explained.
The sights, sounds, and smells
will draw in audiences as they
take a break from the music or
escape the sun, but Warner also
uses the opportunity to pass on his
artistic knowledge.
To me, the fun thing is the
young artists that are trying to
break into the business and me
being able to give them advice
and meet these young guys and
kind of have some sort of infu-
ence on the guidance of how they
do things. Its kind of fun for me
because I myself am a high school
dropout. I learned all this stuff on
my own; Ive got no formal train-
ing or art degree or anything like
that, he acknowledged.
I think people get inspired by
seeing this kind of artwork, and
its inspiring to the artists, too.

Justin learned the hard way that
friends dont always make the best
employees.
Living, learning,
and lip syncing
There I was, a grown man lying
in bed wearing nothing but box-
ers and headphones, eyes closed,
scratching my ass and lip syncing
Torn by Natalie Imbruglia like
I wrote the damn song, when my
parents walked in my bedroom. I
would have been less embarrassed
if they caught me masturbating. I
was a hot mess that morning, as
my newest adventure of managing
a dive bar was quickly steering
from an endless party to ceaseless
problems.
When I frst became the man-
ager of a faltering dive in Scranton
last month, everyone hit me up on
Facebook wanting to get in on the
action. I fgured if I worked with
friends, it would help me create
the laid-back atmosphere I was
looking to establish; I would also
know I was working with people I
could trust.
Let me clean the kitchen so you
can start serving food! asked my
buddy Rocky.
The day he was scheduled to
clean, he told me that he had a date
with a hot girl he wanted to go on.
He also mentioned that he didnt
have any money to take her. Never
one to get in the way of a friend
getting laid, I offered to loan him
money to take his girl out if he
cleaned the kitchen the next day
and paid me back with the money
he would earn.
The next day rolled by and he
never showed. Later that night, I
sent him a text asking what hap-
pened.
Im still on the date with her!
he replied. Im meeting her fam-
ily right now, then shes meeting
mine!!!
36 hours later and he was still
on the date and meeting her fam-
ily? It sounded more like the pilot
episode of Dharma & Greg than
a frst date.
I realized he didnt take the job
seriously, fguring I would un-
derstand as his friend that he was
getting it on.
Lets work together on hav-
ing a model search at your bar!
suggested my friend LaToya
Jackson, not to be confused with
the Michael Jackson wannabe
from The Apprentice. She was a
photographer for a model agency,
and we agreed working together on
this event would help both of our
businesses.
Whenever we would make plans
to work together on organizing the
event, LaToya Jackson would tell
me that she was too busy working
on something else. Once again, a
friend was putting me on the back
burner, fguring I would be more
understanding than someone else,
as I was their friend. It spiraled
into the event never getting fully
organized, her psycho boss getting
pissed and cancel-
ing the event, and
LaToya Jackson get-
ting fred for it.
This is all your
fault! she blamed
after getting fred.
Never speak to me
again!
I learned the hard
way, Mom and Dad,
that its never a good
idea to work with
friends, as it is a
recipe to ruin your
friendship. I guess
thats why they say
you live, you learn,
you lip sync.

News of the weird
SMARTY PANTS
The Precocious Tots of Finland:
AUniversity of Kansas professor
and two co-authors, in research in
a forthcoming issue of the Journal
of Finance, found that children age
10 and under substantially outper-
formed their parents in earnings
from stock trading in the few days
before and after rumors swirled
on possible corporate mergers.
Alikely explanation, they said,
is that the parents or guardians
were buying and selling for their
childrens accounts using illegal
insider information that they were
cautious about using in their per-
sonal accounts, which would more
easily arouse suspicion. While the
parents accounts had nice returns,
the kids accounts (including those
held by the very recently born)
were almost 50 percent more
proftable. (The study, reported by
NPR in April, covered 15 years of
trades in Finland, chosen because
that country collects age data that
the U.S. and other countries do
not.)
THE ENTREPRENEURIAL
SPIRIT!
Delicate Marketing Required:
(1.) Afuoride-free chocolate
toothpaste proven to strengthen
teeth and regenerate enamel is now
on sale in limited markets in the
U.S. Theodent (active ingredient:
rennou) is also available in mint
favor, said its New Orleans-based
inventor, Dr. Tetsuo Nakamoto.
(2.) One of the 12 Canadian foods
chosen to accompany the countrys
International Space Station astro-
naut in December is the limited-is-
sue dry cereal especially noted for
its fber, organic buckwheat and
various nontraditional ingredients.
Holy Crap cereal is available
throughout Canada and in 19 other
countries.
Even to Icelanders ac-
customed to harsh weather and
isolation, reported The New York
Times in March, the city of Grims-
stadir is a particularly desolate
spot. Nonetheless, Chinese
billionaire land developer Huang
Nubo has announced he intends
to build a luxury hotel and golf
course in the area for his country-
men seeking clean air and soli-
tude. Since snowfalls often run
from September until May, locals
are skeptical of Huangs motives,
but he continues to press for a
long-term lease covering about
100 square miles for a project
estimated to eventually cost about
$100 million.
FRONTIERS OF SCIENCE
Since gastrointestinal noro-
viruses are so infectious and can
be fatal in countries with marginal
hygiene, scientists at the U.K. gov-
ernments Health and Safety Lab
in Derbyshire needed to study the
reach and dispersion of human
vomitus, especially its aerosol-
izing. Working with nauseous
patients would be impractical,
and thus, researcher Catherine
Makison created Vomiting
Larry, a puke-hurling robot with
a range of almost 10 feet. (Accord-
ing to a University of Cambridge
researcher, one can be infected by
fewer than 20 norovirus particles,
each droplet of puke can contain
2 million particles, and the virus
remains active on hard surfaces for
12 hours.)
Research published in Febru-
ary by Britains Royal Society sci-
ence association found that male
guppies in mating mode prefer
to congregate with plainer, less
colorful males, probably for an
obvious reason: to look better by
comparison. Said Italian researcher
Clelia Gasparini, You want to
impress (a female potential mate).
Would you look more attractive
in comparison with (the dowdy,
awkward comic star) Mr. Bean or
George Clooney?
Hottentot golden moles re-
side underground, which is not so
oppressive because theyre blind
and navigate by smell and touch.
Nonetheless, some scientists spend
years studying them, and in a
recent issue of Mammalian Biol-
ogy, South African researchers dis-
closed that females choose mates
largely by penis size. While some
human females also favor this
particular pre-copulatory mecha-
nism, the scientists hypothesized
that the moles reliance on touch
leaves them with no alternative.
Premium Health Care for
Lovable Animals: While some
Americans cannot get medically
necessary health care, a few lucky
animals every year receive exactly
what they need from wildlife con-
servation centers. Most recently, in
March, a sandhill crane received
deluxe surgery by a facility in
Abbotsford, British Columbia,
after having his leg shattered on a
golf course. Doctors tried several
surgeries, then amputated the leg,
and have ftted the crane with a
prosthesis that allows balance-
preserving mobility. (In February,
Suma Aqualife Park near Kobe,
Japan, ftted a 190-pound logger-
head turtle with rubber fns kept in
place by a vest to replace fns
damaged in what doctors guessed
was a shark attack.)
The Dark Side: Even though
human hearts open warmly to
helpless animals, kindness is not
universal. As Clemson Univer-
sity animal conservation student
Nathan Weaver found with a quick
experiment late last year, some
drivers will deliberately swerve
into a turtle trying to cross a busy
road seven drivers, he found, in
the space of one hour (though most
drivers easily avoided the realistic
rubber model). (In the 1979 movie
The Great Santini, an overbear-
ing fghter-pilot-husband who
squishes turtles while driving late
at night tells his wife, Its my
only sport when Im traveling, my
only hobby.)
LEADING ECONOMIC
INDICATORS
Wealthy Russians have recently
found a way around the countrys
horrid traffc jams: fake ambulanc-
es, outftted with plush interiors for
relaxation while specially trained
drivers use unauthorized lights
and sirens to maneuver through
cluttered streets. Londons Daily
Telegraph reported in March that
ambulance companies charge the
equivalent of about $200 an hour
for these taxis.
W
STRANGE OLD WORLD
Romanian lawyer Madalin Ciculescu, 34, said in April that the next stop
for his lawsuit is the European Court of Human Rights after two Romanian
courts turned down his claims against Orthodox bishops who failed
to exorcize the demons that were causing his atulence. He sued the
archdiocese because at least two exorcisms (one in his ofce, one at home)
proved useless, thus harming his business as well as rendering his home
life unpleasant. An archdiocese spokesman said the exorcisms were done
properly, by the book.

Neon Trees get everybody talking
Wilkes-Barres F.M. Kirby
Center has hosted countless
performances, from touring
musicals and ballets to comedians
and magicians. On April 8, Neon
Trees and their opener, Twenty
One Pilots, continued the dramatic
tradition with their eclectic sound
and showmanship in their Monday
night concert, presented by Wilkes
University.
The genre-bending duo Twenty
One Pilots drummer Josh Dunn
and singer/rapper and synth/
uke/piano player Tyler Joseph
entered in matching skeleton-
masked hoodies and maintained
theatrics throughout their entire
performance. The crowd sang
along as the two climbed, danced
on, and back fipped off of both
the piano and raised drum kit.
Neon Trees entered the stage to
sweeping orchestrations. Singer
Tyler Glenn took his spot at the
glowing microphone stand and led
the crowd in hand claps as they
began Moving in the Dark from
their latest LP. Each band member
ft the neo-glam rock vibe, from
their enormously styled hair and
Liberace-esque glitter to the hems
of their bright, tailored pants.
With a voice and allure like
The Hives Howlin Pelle, Glenn
leaned toward the crowd. I want
you to move up closer, he en-
treated. I want you to do whatev-
er you feel like! You paid for this;
lets have some fun! The crowd
bubbled over the edge of their
seats, into the aisles and pooled at
the footlights as the band began
their poppy Weekend.
Neon Trees is spectacular in
the true sense of the word each
member is a cohesive contribution
to the cast of a stunning perfor-
mance. In the hushed moments
when Elaine Bradley wasnt
striking her drums in perfect tim-
ing, she posed, emphatically still.
Guitarist Chris Allen mastered his
glam rock pout and a chord-crash-
ing arm swing while bassist Bran-
den Campbell nodded onward.
Upstage stood steady-strumming
touring guitarist, David Charles.
Their second full-length album,
2012s Picture Show, is aes-
thetically infuenced by the bands
melodramatic rock mentors, The
Killers. Neon Trees played album
quality tunes on a buzzing stage.
Ablackout between each song
allowed for specifc lighting,
dramatizing the 14-song set into a
14-scene performance.
Ladies and gentleman, pro-
claimed Glenn, I was born in the
year 1981, which makes me 29,
which means I dont know jack.
But I know I like to party! And
I dont know you, but I want to
know you!
Bradley pounded a new wave
heartbeat for Love and Affec-
tion. After singing, Everybodys
showing everybody up / its a
competition, me and you, Glenn
proposed, I want to start a fght!
He continued, Its a nonviolent
fght, then asked the crowd
for the proper pronunciation of
Wilkes-Barre. As they replied with
dueling Barres, Glenn shouted,
You gonna duke it out?!
Sinking to the stage foor,
poised after the blackout, Glenn
wailed, Oh, oh / I want some
more! In an unprovoked call and
response, the crowd demanded,
What are you waiting for?!
Thats not good enough, teased
Glenn. Im sweating for you on
a Monday night! The audience
shrieked louder, the lights livened
up, dancing on Glenns glittery
jacket, and the band dove into
their 2010 hit, Animal.
Fog rose over Allens stiff-
shouldered smoking jacket with
streams of light strumming
his guitar as he plucked a few
western-style opening strings for
Mad Love, his facial gestures
straight from an iconic 80s music
video. Campbells bass got aerial,
and Bradley shined on her dulcet
verses and muffed drums.
The undeniable beat of Les-
sons in Love (All Day, All Night)
sent Glenn strutting across the
stage la Mick Jagger, echoing
the pouting lips on his tee. Under
a spotlight, he declared, Im go-
ing to sing you a song; its really
simple, its really stripped, its
really, he whispered, quiet,
then leaned into the keys and
began playing 2010 ballad Your
Surrender.
Trust sampled Jack Nich-
olsons Joker and showcased
Bradleys prog rock drumming
and transitioned into Glenn and
Bradleys duet cover of Human
Leagues Dont You Want Me
Baby. Glenn guided the crowd to
snap along to encore In the Next
Room and casually swept up a
bouquet of fowers from a fan. As
Bradley brushed cymbals, Glenn
spun around the stage, dipped to
his knees, and landed on his back,
leading the audience in a chorus
of whoas.
Glenn reached into the air to
grab the attention of the audi-
ence: Thank you guys for being
here! He continued, pacing the
stage. Remember one thing and
one thing only: you get by with
a little help from your friends!
And remember one simple phrase:
Everybody Talks. Any remain-
ing shy bystanders rushed closer
for the bands chart-topper. As the
song ended, they rose, bowed, and
after Glenn blew his fnal kiss
Neon Trees exited stage left.

Beer: Double Agent IPL
Brewer: Boston Beer Com-
pany (SamAdams)
Style: India Pale Lager
ABV: 5.00%
Description: This fantas-
tic beer from the Boston Beer
Company, known by most of us
as SamAdams, is a combination
of the hoppy IPAstyle and the
smooth lager style. This com-
bination creates a hoppy, crisp,
smooth, and very drinkable beer.
The beer itself pours a beautiful
golden copper color with a thin
white head that leaves a fne-
looking lace on the glass. The
aroma, oh the wonderful aroma,
notes of grapefruit, tropical fruit,
and a slight pine emanate from
the glass, and this aroma lasts
throughout the drinking experi-
ence. The frst sip will bring
about a strong malty sweetness,
which quickly morphs into a
wonderful citrus bitterness and
then ends very dry and clean,
exactly what you would want
from any hoppy beer. The lager
base for this beer gives it a great
body on which to build the excel-
lent hop varieties. This is truly a
match made in heaven; the one
negative is that it took so long to
create this wonderful beer!
Food pairing: The com-
bined characteristics of this
beer make it very versatile with
a wide variety of dishes. This
could easily go well with all of
your traditional summer foods;
burgers, hot dogs, or chicken on
the grill. Apersonal favorite of
mine with this beer is a wonder-
fully smoked BBQ brisket; the
caramel favors from the meat
and the sweetness of the malt
combine for a beautiful experi-
ence in your mouth while the
citrus hops add additional favor
and the moderate carbonation
cleanses your palate for you
to start the experience all over
again with every bite. Looking
for something a little differ-
ent with this one, though? How
about a delicious chicken Parme-
san dinner! The lager base gives
this beer enough heft to stand up
to the thickest of sauces, while
the hops character compliments
the cheeses and chicken very
well, and again, that wonderful
carbonation cleanses the palate
every time! This is a beer you
can fnd your own combinations
with, though, and try a wide vari-
ety of dishes, so be adventurous
with this beer!
Is it worth trying? Without
any hesitation, yes! This is just
a fantastic beer to enjoy this
spring/summer while sitting
around the pool, at the bar, or a
nice relaxing night on the porch
with friends. The hops choices in
this beer are all very well thought
out and combine for a truly
wonderful hoppy beer without
being overly bitter, and its only
real negative aspect is that it is
too hard to put down. Yes, this
beer truly is that good. Dont
believe me? Then go try one for
yourself!

BEER REVIEWS
Derek Warren | Weekender Correspondent
The perfect mugshot
Sometimes, when its late at
night and Im laying in bed trying
to sleep, a singular thought pops
into my head:
I could really go for a piece of
cake.
(What? Just me? You liars.)
And that sucks, because Im not
going to get up and bake a full one,
and, odds are, no stores are open
for me to go and buy one from.
Thankfully, some genius
somewhere fgured out a way to
not only make a single serving of
dessert, but to do it in under fve
minutes. Its no wonder there is
currently chocolate all over my
bedsheets.
Cakes, cookies, brownies, you
name it it can all be made for one
person via coffee mug.
There are tons of recipes out
there, but Ive found two that
I stick with because they taste
incredible: the chocolate peanut
butter mug cake and the banana
Nutella microwave brownie.
First and foremost, make sure
you grab a larger-than-normal-
sized mug. These things are going
to blow up pretty big, but dont
freak out because they eventually
defate for your noshing pleasure.
All the mug cake requires is
four, sugar, cocoa powder, baking
powder, salt, milk, vegetable oil,
and peanut butter. Whisk the dry
ingredients together in the mug
with a fork, then add the milk, veg-
etable oil, and peanut butter. Whisk
all of that together until smooth.
Pop it in the microwave on high
for a minute and 10, let it cool, and
enjoy.
Its seriously that easy. Same
thing goes for the banana Nutella
microwave brownie. This one has
even less ingredients with banana,
chocolate chips, four, sugar, but-
ter, and Nutella.
Mash the half banana up in the
mug, then simply add the rest of
the ingredients and microwave on
high for 30 seconds. Remove the
mug and stir everything inside up,
then pop it back up in the mic for
one to two more minutes until it
reaches brownie consistency.
Who loses in this situation?
No one. Start your morning with
some coffee, then end the day in
the same fashion with dessert.
Just make sure you have a napkin
ready. Or dont devour it like a
savage, like I do.

THEMED NIGHTS
The worst thing that you
think can happen in the gym
will not. You will not embar-
rass yourself. You will not
look lost. You will not fail.
Most likely, you built up
this negativity in your head
and convinced yourself that
youre doomed for failure.
Most, if not all of what could
go wrong during your initial
visits, will NOT.
Whether its your frst time
in the gym or youre a gym
veteran that lost your way,
meet with a trainer for a
consultation to discuss a plan.
By doing this, you eliminate
that unsettling fear of the
unknown. Youll know what
to expect at the frst session,
and it includes basic level
approaches like how to move
your body through space,
not how youll do 25 jump
squats, which is not simple,
nor how to do sprint intervals
on a treadmill, which is not
simple. But doing one body
weight squat or turning on
the treadmill is simple. Walk
in the gym and smile. Say, I
can do this. Walk and smile.
Done.
Thinking positively all the
time is easier said than done.
To be honest, I struggle with
this. Maybe not in a gym
setting, but in other aspects
of my life. I like to be in con-
trol. When that control gets
minimized, I get the same
uneasy feeling from unfamil-
iar situations as most of you.
Feeling comfortable with
who I am helps me to put
things into perspective and
quickly squash those feelings
of self-doubt as soon as they
creep in.
Yes, there are exceptions.
Sometimes, its diffcult
to let go when you know its
something you absolutely
cannot control. Its something
I continuously work at, but
I am committed to rising
above even the most diffcult
situations. Focus on what
you can control and change
the way you react when it is
something you cannot. Apply
this concept when conquering
your goal of losing unwanted
body fat. You control every-
thing you eat and whether or
not you go to the gym. What
you gain from your workout
is controlled solely by you.
You determine how high the
bar is set. Dont just show up
accomplish a goal.
Continuing to work on
your goal is also simple once
you adopt a fresh, positive
outlook on how you react,
respond to, and view situa-
tions. Once you take control
of yourself, nothing is scary.
Taking it to the next level
is empowering, and there is
nothing more exhilarating
than feeling this way. You
dont know really how good
you are until your truly chal-
lenge yourself.
I can do this. And so can
you.

Eye spy
something green
Its spring time, and now
is the time to clean up your
makeup routine, simplify
it, and take it into the new
season.
As you all know, each trend
for every season has a sig-
nature color; well, youre in
luck, since the color for this
season as well as the entire
year is green. As we approach
the warmer seasons, we start
off with sea foam and mint
greens, and later this year,
as we reach fall and winter,
the color will tone down and
transform and deepen to a
jewel tone or metallic green.
I know most of you are
thinking: Can I
even wear green
eye shadow?
and to be honest,
not everyone
can pull it off,
but thats why
they are called
trend looks
and not wearable, everyday
makeup looks.
If you want to keep it
simple but stay on trend, ap-
ply a soft champagne color to
your lid and fnish with green
eyeliner. You can use any type
of liner; liquid will give you
a slightly edgier look. Double
lining
will
make
the look
even
more
edito-
rial and
fashion
forward
by us-
ing a
black
liquid
liner, then following above it
with a green liquid liner.
For a little more pop of
color and a look that is still
natural and subtle, do a sheer
wash of a neu-
tral-like cham-
pagne color
from lash line to
brow bone, then
take a matte soft
brown and apply
into the crease,
staying within
the outer half of the eye lid.
Then, to add that extra special
burst of color, take your green
eye shadow and in small,
circular motions, apply it to
the outer third of your eye lid.
This will give you a nice hue
of color that peeks out from
behind your lashes. (This is a
great application for bridal
makeup as well.)
Continuing your spring
look, I suggest adding a fun
color splash to your cheeks;
no bronzer needed, just apply
a pink or coral, concentrating
the color more intense where
your natural contour is and
blending upward to create
a soft subtle gradient with a
kick.
To fnish up your look,
take a similar shade to your
cheek color in either a bright
pink or coral even a fuchsia
would be beautiful and
would really compliment the
green liner/shadow.

Facebook slides into home
There have long been
rumors about an impending
Facebook Phone. This has
always struck me as a little
odd. The smartphone market
is already crowded; devices
and operating systems arent
Facebooks core competency,
and it would need to move
well out of its usual comfort
zone to actually make it work.
These rumors, however,
were persistent, and came
from fairly credible sources.
Even so, companies kick
ideas around all the time. Mo-
bile is a big market, and the
existing Facebook apps are
prone to long load times and
a less than stellar experience,
compared to the full page.
Well, it turns out I was
rightand wrong. In ret-
rospect, everyone who was
talking about the Facebook
Phone should have seen what
was actually coming.
Facebook has come Home.
To the homescreen on your
phone, that is. It has released
a new app called Facebook
Home that transforms the
homescreen and lock screen
of your Android phone with
a Facebook feed and a launch
screen for apps and other pro-
grams. This app will initially
be available for the Samsung
Galaxy S3, S4, Note 2, and
HTC One, One X, and HTC
First devices starting now.
Calling it an app is selling it
a bit short its actually more
of a total re-skin that puts
status updates, likes, and posts
front and center. Its not the
usual, relative-
ly conservative
Facebook fare,
either, but a
more modern,
photo-and-
graphic-centric
design that
is touch-
optimized and
quite a bit
more beautiful
than the cur-
rent Facebook
app.
Facebook has also to-
tally redesigned the Face-
book Messenger app, and
now under Facebook Home,
conversations with people
using either text or Facebook
chat will be visible no matter
what you happen to be doing
on your device. The company
is calling this feature Chat
Heads, which is a nomencla-
ture nonstarter as far as Im
concerned, but hey, its their
app, so they can call it what
they want, I guess.
Many novice Android users
have complained about the
relative complexity of navi-
gating Androids apps, wid-
gets, and folders. Facebook
Homes app launcher removes
that onerous problem, simpli-
fying how apps are presented
to users into a basic grid. I
personally favor Androids
native app launcher, because
even though its more com-
plex, its also more functional
but Ive heard the complaint
often enough, from enough
different people, to recognize
that I may be in the minority
there.
Facebook is basically
aiming to make devices run-
ning Facebook Home more
people-centric than app-
centric, and by developing
a totally new, immersive inter-
face that is stuffed to the gills
with Facebook functionality.
Available from the two top-
tier manufacturers of Android
phones, Facebook is basically
ensuring that anytime you
use your phone at all, youre
using a Facebook
app. These are smart
people, no question
about it.

tion about Facebook

load Facebook Home,

store and search for

tech talk
GadGets, Gizmos, & more
Nick delorenzo | Special to the Weekender
Fredrik kesson picked up a gui-
tar at age 12 and hasnt put it down
since, playing in Swedish heavy
metal bands like Arch Enemy and
Talisman before joining Opeth in
2007.
As the progressive metal quintet
prepares for their next North Amer-
ican tour in support of their 2011
album Heritage, which stops at
the Sherman Theater on April 27,
kesson took a break to talk to The
Weekender about his travels, life on
the road, and his future career.
THE WEEKENDER: When
you frst joined the band, what
was the transition like from the
music you played previously to
this?
FREDRIK KESSON: It was
defnitely a challenge because
in some songs, its a lot of differ-
ent riffs and parts and tempos and
all that, and also a lot of acoustic
playing, which I hadnt done in that
extent before. So it was different,
but I was into that kind of tempo
even though, I think, looking at
somewhat objectively, it was a
unique sound. I was into progres-
sive stuff.
W: Opeth defnitely plays some
very complex music. How do
you keep up your chops? Do you
practice every day?
F: Yeah, I do. I havent played
in over two days; Im starting to get
a bit of anguish I usually try to
play at least a couple of hours every
day. I play even more on the road
because you have so much time to
kill, so I really try to play a lot and
jam with (vocalist and guitarist)
Mikael (kerfeldt).
W: What was your frst tour
with Opeth like?
F: (My frst show) was in Fin-
land at a festival in 07 that sum-
mer. That was a very nervous show,
I will have to admit. I had about
three months before that to learn
the songs, so I had a good amount
of time to pull it off, so it went fne.
The frst tour, I think, was prob-
ably a European tour, headlining,
then it was with Dream Theater in
America.
W: What has been your most
memorable tour so far?
F: The last tour we did in
America was really fun with
Mastodon and Ghost. I had a lot
of fun with those guys, but every
tour is special in a way because
you play with other bands and hang
out and you become friends, then
tours over. Bye bye. See ya. They
all have good memories, I would
say. Its diffcult to pick a favorite
tour Were looking forward to
doing the American tour now. Its
been a long tour for the Heritage
album.
W: What is your favorite coun-
try to tour in?
F: I enjoy Australia a lot. Its
fun and its very different compared
to Japan Theyre more modest
and quiet, more silent. Tokyo is
getting a bit more crazier. America
is always fun. Its so different from
town to town. I think Mikaels sar-
casm goes (over well) in America
and England as well. But I would
say the greatest crowds are in prob-
ably South America. We played in
Chile once and they were singing
along with the guitar melodies and
stuff, almost like an Iron Maiden
show or something. It was cool.
W: Do you enjoy being away
from home for so long?
F: I do enjoy it. Its always fun
to play. Traveling, of course, gets to
you sometimes You have to stay
away from the hard liquor. But I do
enjoy it thats what Ive always
wanted to do I got divorced a
couple years ago. It could be tough
on family life, but it is what we
do. I always said to myself that the
music comes frst.
W: You do have any personal
career goals you have yet to ac-
complish?
F: It would be nice to do a gui-
tar album, some kind of solo album,
and Im working on it. Theres a
bunch of ideas laying around, so
well see what happens. Also, Im
looking forward to starting work on
the new Opeth album after the sum-
mer, so were stoked about that
Its probably going to be a bit more
intense.
W: What is your writing pro-
cess like? Do you write separately
or together as a band?
F: Separately, I would say.
Some songs we jammed on the
sound check; the last tour we were
jamming on some ideas that Mike
had, so we kind of developed that
song. Otherwise, Mikael writes the
majority of the stuff. He does really
proper demos Were actually
working on a song write now at my
house. Its actually a new approach.
Im doing that by myself now.
Were stretching it to the limits of
this one. We have a bit of time to
think about it.
W: On Heritage, you guys
experimented with some different
sounds. Is it diffcult to stretch
your creative muscles while still
retaining the sound fans come to
expect?
F: Its very diffcult, and were
defnitely stretching the limits
sometimes, but I think thats a bit
what Opeth is all about, to try to
do something different on every
album.
W: What are you looking for-
ward to regarding this tour?
F: Were happy to come back
to the States and Canada also, and
were looking forward to seeing
you out there.

Hype for Injustice is justied
Its fnally
here! My most
anticipated
game since
last years E3,
Injustice:
Gods Among
Us is the
newest game
from one of
my favor-
ite studios,
NetherRealm.
NetherRealm
is known for
its classic
fghting series Mortal Kombat,
and Injustice is a dream come
true for me, as it brings together
two of my favorite things: fght-
ing games and superheroes.
Using the same fghting engine
from last years Mortal Kombat
9, Injustice is a fghter featuring
a whos who from the DC Com-
ics universe. All the big names
are here: Batman, Superman,
Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor,
and much more. The idea behind
Injustice is just brilliant; now
we get to see who would win in a
fght between your favorite comic
heroes in gloriously over-the-top
and violent HD battles.
The frst thing you notice when
you start this game is the amazing
graphics and attention to detail.
This game is full of fan service
and is just a pure delight for DC
Comics fans. Each of the charac-
ters look and sound great. Most
have updated designs, but they
look like they are ripped right off
the pages of a comic book, and
they hired all of the voice talent
from the animated versions of
Justice League, Superman:
The Animated Series, and Bat-
man: The Animated Series.
Most fghting games dont
tell much of a story, but Gods
Among Us has a fantastic comic
book story. Right at the start,
Joker sets off a bomb killing
Lois Lane sparking a storyline
between Superman and himself.
I dont wont to spoil any of it,
but its moments like this that set
the tone for the game. It is much
darker, grittier, and more violent
then the average DC Comic,
but what else would you expect
from a game similar to Mortal
Kombat?
The striking visuals in this
game make the fghts looks
incredible and truly epic. These
titans fght it out in many dif-
ferent settings, from Gotham
City, Metropolis, the Bat Cave
and much more. Each level is
truly breathtaking and has many
interactive elements that can be
used to turn the tide of the fght.
Each of these battles are as truly
epic as you would expect; you
can punch your opponent through
walls, throw cars, use weapons,
and Superman can even uppercut
a combatant into space!
The controls and gameplay are
very similar to Mortal Kom-
bat. Each fghter has normal
move,s such as punches, kicks,
and throws, but they also have a
series of
special
moves
and fn-
ishers that
are unique
to each
character.
Flash has
his speed
run, Bat-
man has
all sorts
of gadgets
to use,
Aqua-
man can
summon sharks, and
Green Lantern can use
his power ring; every
move looks gorgeous
and authentic. One
great thing is that none
of the players feel too
overpowered; they
are all powerful in
their own ways, and it
doesnt seem unfair to
pit someone like Cat-
woman against Shazam
because each character
has a basic move set
and special moves that
are very balanced.
Anew system that has been
added to the game that wasnt
in MK is the Wager system.
You can trade in some of your
special meter for extra health;
it is handy at times, but it does
artifcially lengthen each match.
The computer uses it all the time,
and it feels like it is cheating in a
way. The wagers also have a little
scene when they are activating,
which sometimes take a long time
to watch. Its interesting, but it
does make the fghts more tedious
than they should be. They are
super fun and epic but could be
punched up a bit, which would
make it more fun.
Just like the other NetherRealm
games, the amount of content you
can unlock is just absurd; there
are several modes such as tutori-
als, fghting challenges, story, and
online play. Each fght also earns
you experience, which lets you
unlock things like more charac-
ters, outfts, concept art, music,
and background stages. If you are
a completionist like me, this will
keep you playing for a very long
time.
It is very obvious that this stu-
dio knows the subject matter and
are big fans themselves because
everything about this game is fan
service. Injustice is a blast to
play, looks gorgeous, and is just
all-around fun. If you are a comic
book nerd or just want a good
fghting game, you have to pick
this game up today! W

OLDSMOBILE F-85
Owner:
Danny Gallishaw
Montrose
I love owning a rare car.
You dont see many F-85s on
the road today, Gallishaw
said. But back in the 60s,
the F-85 was a staple of the
Oldsmobile line.
It was basically a ground
up restoration of this beauty,
he continued. It was quite
rusted and beaten up when I
started it restoring it with my
brother and a couple of my
friends. W
Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and other DC Comics
heroes and villians face off in a brutal battle in Injustice.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Bulls are famously good confdence-
keepers, and for being tight-lipped about
stuff like your income or emotions. But
youre lousy at tolerating secrets youre
not in on. Still, wont you consider the
possibility that youre better off not
knowing? Mystery is often preferable to
certainty; the former can be alluring and
glamorous, the latter dreary. Which is
better: a fabulously spooky haunted house,
or an old man in a rubber mask wielding
ropes and pulleys? Be cooler than the
Scooby Gang and allow minor villains
their illusionstheyre better than the
tedious realities beneath.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Despite your brilliance, comparing
yourself to the great masters is just
depressing. Any of them outclasses you,
and their combined work seriously daunts
ordinary mortals. So youll never be as
prolifc an inventor as Thomas Edison,
or as witty a speaker as Mark Twain
or as inspired a sculptor as Camille
Claudel. Thats no excuse to slink to your
dumpy hometown to see the high school
classmates who got stuck there, saddled
with pedestrian lives. Yeah, doing so
would make you feel momentarily good
about yourself, but it would also avoid
the lesson you really need to learn: Why
compare yourself to anyone, great or
pathetic? The only standard that really
matters is your own.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Once, you opened the foodgates
to your core. Someone asked you to.
Unfortunately, you were both washed
away by the tidal force of all that stored-
up passion. You ended up in the tallest
tree in town with other fotsam and jetsam,
while your suitor was swept out to sea,
and never seen again. Since then, youve
been hard at work on a new emotional
infrastructure, one that can help you
control the fow so its never more than
a little overwhelming. Now that its
almost time to test your new heart-design,
consider opening it all the way. The fact
that your last wooer was washed away
speaks more to their quality than yours.
Your new one might settle for nothing
less than the full force of your uncensored
soul.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Im petitioning the universe to infuse
your personal talismans with extra powers
this week. For instance, if you were a
drag queen, your stiletto heels could work
overtime as weapons and serving utensils,
as well as footwear. Putting your primary
tools to new uses is not only astrologically
mandated; it could reap unexpected
fallout in your life. For instance, using
your carpenters hammer as a gavel could
reveal a heretofore unrealized passion for
law, or using your stethoscope to crack a
safe might unfold a new career as a spy,
or bank robber. Be creative with familiar
objectsand be open to the paths they
reveal.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The impracticality of the adage,
Problems should be solved by those
who see them, is obvious: some people,
like you observant and diligent Virgos,
see more problems than you personally
have the power to fx, and you often
wear yourselves too thin trying to do
it all anyway. Create a saner reality
for yourself: amend the motto to read,
Problems should be addressed by those
who see them. In other words, remember
that delegation is not a sin. The next time
your inner goad nags, If you dont, who
will? tell it: Ill fnd someone.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Youve been breathing the rarefed air
of your lofty moral mountaintop for so
long that coming down to our sinfully
decadent lowlands must be overwhelming,
even intoxicating, if youd only admit
it, just like getting a couple lungfuls of
thick, oxygen-rich sea level air must be
invigorating for real alpine dwellers.
Stay a while, wont you? No one expects
you to completely abandon the lovely
home youve made up there in principled
territory with the billygoats, but a naughty
sojourn amongst us wicked mortals is
long overdue. This week, at least, when
presented with a choice between the
exalted righteousness of the right thing
to do and the bittersweet favor of more
errant delights, choose the wayward latter
option every time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
I dreamt you were directing the
production of a mythic porno, with
mighty centaurs screwing in a sunlit
glade, Perseus playing show-and-tell
with Medusa in the mirror, and the
Kraken fnally having his way with a
gorgeous young virgin on the rocks amid
crashing surf. This sexy epic was hardly
your lifes work; in fact, it was merely
a side project youd taken on as a lark.
But I saw the potential for it to become
one of your proudest, most acclaimed
achievements. Atiny little venture youve
been contemplating (or even begun) could
sprout into something big. Acknowledge
that potential: Give it room enough to do
so.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
When my Sagittarius friend gashed his
hand climbing a chain link fence, he was
fascinated by his wounds. Its been a long
time since I bled, he remarked dazedly,
half-hypnotized by the fresh red liquid
dripping down his arm. I think he felt a
little lucky to have this reminder to wake
up to living inside his skin. Astrological
omens indicate that the universe wants all
Archers to pay special attention to their
bodies for the time being. Humor it. Dont
give kismet a reason to break your arm,
or give you another scar, just to deliver a
lesson youre perfectly capable of learning
on your own.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This week holds your best opportunity
all season for swift multiplication of your
personal fortune. Naturally, it all depends
on what youre willing to wager in the frst
place. It would be safer to not bet anything
at all and improve your lot the old-
fashioned way, through slow and steady
hard work. You dont have much time to
deliberate; the roulette wheel is already in
motion. Will you take the long odds and
put all your money on your best guess? In
the last few seconds before you make up
your mind, consider this factor: If you win
too many times in a row, they kick you out
of the casino.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
As an exercise, I order you to construct
a fort made from overturned chairs,
bedsheets, and pillows. Have a water-
balloon fght with someone. Play tug-of-
war with a dog until he gets tired of it. I
mean it. Really do these things. Your most
precious childlike impulses are at risk of
slipping away, for lack of use. Believe me,
losing your ability or desire to playeven
temporarilyis no laughing matter, which
is part of the problem. Dont let it happen.
Go outside and spin until the only thing
you can do is fall down laughing and try
not to puke.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Avoiding the source of your blight is
the worst thing you could do. Instead, I
prescribe the hair of the dog, as they
say. There may be other remedies for
your particular ailment, but none quite so
effective as a nearly homeopathic dose of
whatever it was that caused you to suffer
in the frst place. If you dont contradict
your violently unpleasant reaction now
while its still in your system, you could
be dealing with a terrible, debilitating
allergy for years to come. Dont let
that happen. It would be a devastating
handicap to always have to avoid a certain
favor or animal or human being forever.
Go get a minor dose, and cure yourself,
now.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Some parrots are so long-lived that
they often outlive their owners. They
can render uncannily perfect imitations
of people they encounter frequently. Its
no wonder that their owners possess
an exaggerated view of their pets
intelligence, often contending that their
avian buddies can actually use their
copied catchphrases appropriately. Its a
cute delusion, but I expect you to be less
nave. Hearing what you want to hear has
made you reluctant to question the source.
It might be as empty of meaning as your
average birdbrain. Dont take whats said
at face value unless you know where its
coming from; even then, get it in writing.

The PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has an immediate opening for
an Environmental Engineering Manager in its Williamsport Regional Office, located at
208 West Third Street, Suite 101, Williamsport, PA 17701-6448. Duties include
managing a staff of professional employees responsible for the review of NPDES and
Water Quality Management Permit applications related to the discharge of treated
sewage, industrial wastewater, ground water, CAFOs or combined sewage overflows;
providing for management oversight of PENNVEST, Water Pollution Control Revolving
Fund and Federal Construction Grant projects.
DEP is a state government agency responsible for administering
Pennsylvanias environmental laws and regulations related to air, water, waste,
mineral resources, radiation, energy, and community revitalization.
Many DEP positions are civil service; therefore, applicants must participate in civil
service examinations to be considered for employment.
In order to qualify for the Environmental Engineering Manager position, applicants
must possess two years as an Environmental Engineer or an Air Quality Engineer or
