Tell @wkdr
if youre a
spender or
saver
Spender, but I always keep a
little nest egg as well.
Im a money maker. Lets just say that I wish I had
more saved.
Spender, but Im getting better
at the saving.
Both. A certain percentage is
saved, and a certain percentage
is allowed to be spent. Most spent
frivolously.
Im working on the whole saving
thing.
Spender always have been,
always will be.
I try to balance both, but Im not
very good at it.
When it comes to money,
are you a spender or a saver?
I
know everyone says they
love Christmas. I mean,
really, it would be weird if
someone said they didnt.
Theyd be more than the
Grinch, they would be down-
right blasphemous.
But I really love it. I truly
adore everything from baking
cookies and watching the same
specials over and over again to
wearing reindeer antlers and
spending way too much money
on gifts. And if I thought I
could get away with it, I would
absolutely wear a cheesy Christ-
mas sweater without an ounce
of irony.
I was obsessed with Elf
before it even hit theaters, and
if you asked me right now, Im
confident I could recite the
entire film without missing a
beat.
Basically, Im probably one
of those people you
wanted to punch in the
face because they were
singing the praises of
listening to Christmas
music before the candy
corn was even gone, and
Im thinking our editor,
Nikki M. Mascali, has
already felt like doing
just that to me more than
once in the past month.
Luckily, Ive also got a
pretty twisted sense of
humor, and thats why I
enjoyed researching our
cover story this week on
p. 14-15. Bloomsburg Theatre
Ensemble will be staging a
production of the one-man,
one-act play, The Santaland
Diaries, which is adapted from
an essay by the sardonic David
Sedaris. If theres anything I
love as much as Christmas, its
a bitter sense of humor.
Sedaris short story takes an
inside look at life as a Macys
Christmas elf. Its always been a
dream of mine to spend a holi-
day season working as an elf in
retail, retiring to the bar after-
wards in full elfin regalia and
ordering a scotch on the rocks.
So reading the story and seeing
the play come to life is a way
for me to live vicariously.
Theres always next year.

HIT THE ICE
Mohegan Sun Arena (255
Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-
Barre Twp.) will open for public
ice skating Tuesday, Dec. 6 from
6-9 p.m. in support of the U.S.
Marine Corps Reserve Toys for
Tots Program. This event is the
only day of the year the public is
allowed to skate on the ice that is
home to the Wilkes-Barre/
Scranton Penguins.
Anyone who brings an un-
wrapped toy or makes a $5 con-
tribution to Toys for Tots is per-
mitted to skate. Refreshments
will be available for purchase at
the concessions stands, and pa-
trons must bring their own skates
there will not be on-site rent-
als. Skate rentals are available at
Coal Street Ice Rink (38 Coal
St., Wilkes-Barre) for $3 starting
at 4 p.m., Monday, Dec. 5.
The USMC Reserve will also
collect toy donations for Toys for
Tots during the AMA Arena-
cross Series events at the arena
Friday and Saturday, Dec. 9-10.
For more info on Toys for Tots,
visit toysfortots.org.
LESSONS IN VINYL
Sector One, a collective of
area DJs, emcees and producers,
will present its first Basic Train-
ing Workshop and Dance Party
Saturday, Dec. 3 from 3-11 p.m.
at Arts YOUniverse (156 S.
Franklin St., Wilkes-Barre).
The Basic Training Workshop
will run from 3-7 p.m. and will
focus on the basics of DJing,
MCing, equipment setup, pro-
duction and lights & visuals.
We want to keep the DJ cul-
ture alive, and to let the young
kids know there is more to it than
just playing songs, DJ Gaje, a
member of Sector One, told the
Weekender Monday. Its easy
for someone to go out and buy a
virtual DJ setup and be a DJ the
next day, but you lose the history,
soul and skill by letting tech-
nology take over.
The all-ages dance party be-
gins at 8 p.m. Tickets for the
workshop are $10, tickets for the
dance party are $10 and an all-
day pass is $15.
HUMANITARIAN HELP
Volunteers in Medicine
(VIM) will host a fundraiser
Thursday, Dec. 1 from 5:30-10
p.m. at Bart & Urbys (119 S.
Main St., Wilkes-Barre),
VIM operates through dona-
tions and proceeds from special
events. This weeks features a
raffle drawing for Lasik eye
surgery from Eye Care Special-
ists, dinner at Cafe Toscana and

Co. Jewelers, plus live entertain-
ment and celebrity bartenders.

info.

news of the weird
By Chuck Shepherd
Weekender Wire Services
CUCKOOCOLLECTIONS
Was Moammar Gadhafi the last
of the buffoon dictators, asked
BBCNews in October. His legend
was earned not merely with his
now-famous, dirty-old-man
scrapbook of Condoleezza Rice
photos. Wrote a BBCreporter,
One day (Gadhafi) was a Mo-
town (backup) vocalist with wet-
look permed hair and tight pants.
The next, a white-suited comic-
operetta Latin American admiral,
dripping with braid. Nonethe-
less, Gadhafi had competition,
according to an October report in
the journal Foreign Policy. For
example, the son of Equatorial
Guineas dictator owns, among
other eccentric luxuries, a $1.4
million collection of Michael
Jackson memorabilia. North
Koreas KimJong Il owns videos
of almost every game Michael
Jordan ever played for the Chica-
go Bulls.

Christies auction house in New
York City was able to attract a
record sales price for a photo-
graph. In November, a1999 photo
by German artist Andreas Gursky,
of a scenic viewof the Rhine
River, sold for $4.3 million. (It is
possible, of course, that buying
the actual waterfront property that
Gursky photographed fromto
enjoy the same viewevery day
would have been less expensive.)

-- Following October arrests by
Nigerias Abuja Environmental
Protection Board, authorities
learned that local prostitutes
earned premiumfees by selling
their customers semen to juju
priests, who use it as medicines
in rituals. Police who rounded up
the sex workers found inventories
of condoms with the necks tied.
WAIT. . . WHAT?
In the course of an October
story on an ill-fated Continental
Airlines flight during which all
restrooms in coach were broken,
the reporter for the Star Tribune of
Minneapolis sought reactions
fromexperts. Calling the toilet
failures a bad situation that
hasnt been addressed was Rob-
ert Brubaker, a spokesman for
something called the American
RestroomAssociation, a Balti-
more-based advocacy group for
toilet users.

-- Oh, Dear! (1) An October
Associated Press dispatch from
NewOrleans warned that Carib-
bean crazy ants are invading five
Southern states by the millions,
and because their death triggers
distress signals to their pals for
revenge attacks, up to10 times as
many might replace any pop-
ulation wiped out. Said a Texas
exterminator, of a pesticide he
once tried, In 30 days I had 2
inches of dead ants covering (an)
entire half-acre, and still the ants
kept coming, crawling across the
carcasses. Texas, Louisiana and
Mississippi are currently the most
vulnerable. (2) Biologists found a
shark fetus with one centered eye
inside a pregnant dusky shark off
the coast of Baja California Sur,
Mexico, in October. Amarine
sciences lab in nearby La Paz
confirmed that the unborn baby,
which filled up a researchers
hand, had the extremely rare con-
genital cyclopia.

Japans Showa University
School of Dentistry has for sever-

based on the companys sex
dolls, and recently upgraded to
the fancier silicone dolls with
human-feel skin that can cost as
much as the equivalent of $9,000
when sold to perverts who cus-
tom-order young women for
companionship. According to a
July CNNreport, advanced robot-
ics added to the Showa version
allowthe doll to utter typical
patient phrases, to sneeze, and
(when trainees mishandle tools) to
gag.

ANEWSOFTHEWEIRD
CLASSIC(MAY2009)
Russias long-running Moscow
Cat Circus/Theater, reported in
News of the Weird in1998, is still
in service, astonishing all who
ever tried to train a cat. In the
United States, Samantha Martin
runs her own similar show(at
such venues as Chicagos Gorilla
Tango Theatre in March (2009))
featuring the Rock Cats trio on
guitar, piano and drums, as well as
a tightrope-walker, barrel-roller
and skateboarder, among other
performers. Martin admitted to a
Chicago Tribune reporter that the
cats music sucks, in that when
theyre playing, theyre not even
playing the same thing, and
anyway she has two backup drum-
mers because her regular is prone
to walking off in a huff, sort of
like diva actresses. This is why
you dont see trained cat acts.
Because the managers cant
take the humiliation. W

Employees at the dump yard in Pompano Beach, Fla., gave Brian
McGuinn zero chance of ever finding the custom-designed ring he had
given his wife but had accidentally tossed in his trash at home on Oct.
30. Facing nine tons of 10-foot-high rotten eggs, dirty diapers and other
garbage (which made him vomit), he found the ring within 30 minutes.

Not all
ELVES
are created equal
T
here are two sides
to the Christmas
coin: Those who
worship every
stinkin thing about it and those
who love to proclaim how much
they despise its commercialism.
But whether you spend the
25th day of December watching
Rush Hour movies in silent
protest or walking around in
a ber-optic reindeer sweater
complete with jingle bells, The
Santaland Diaries, a play that
follows the exploits of a depart-
ment store elf at Christmas, has
a broad enough appeal to draw
in curmudgeons and revelers
alike.
Cashing in on this insiders
knowledge, the Bloomsburg
Theatre Ensemble will be stag-
ing a BYOB production of the
one-man show, which is based
on an essay of the same name by
David Sedaris, Dec. 8-11 at the
Moose Exchange in downtown
By Stephanie DeBalko
Weekender Staff Writer
Bloomsburg.
Im already laughing out
loud in rehearsals, said Eliza-
beth Dowd, the shows director,
when she checked in with the
Weekender recently. And Im
not a laugher, I have to say that.
Thats worth noting, that I am
looking so closely at the struc-
ture that allows the audience to
laugh that I get very focused on
little things and I dont crack up.
But Im just delighted.
The Santaland Diaries was
adapted for the stage by actor
and director Joe Mantello in
1996. Its a rst-person account,
told from Sedaris perspective,
of working as an elf at Macys
in New York during the holiday
season. The one-act play is pep-
pered with tawdry tales of the
clandestine inner-workings of
the store as well as encounters
with rude parents and shoppers.
Its Christmas through the
lens of shopping and Black
Friday and the whole Macys

commercialism of Christmas,
said Richard Cannaday, the cur-
rent ensemble director at BTE
and star of the play.
According to Cannaday,
though, it isnt all wry com-
mentary.
As Ive become an adult,
Christmas is a lot more about
my kids and traveling and cook-
ing meals and semantics, that
kind of thing, rather than the
magic of Christmas, he said.
So this (play) is denitely say-
ing, look, Christmas is magi-
cal if you let it be. And David
spends a lot of the show not
letting the magic of Christmas
affect him.
But by the end of it, he
comes to see that theres some-
thing special about the idea of
Santa Claus and family and
stuff. So its actually a pretty
sweet thing underneath all the
sarcasm and bitterness.
Some of the material in
the show, while not lewd, is
denitely intended for adults.
The general consensus among
ensemble members seems to be
that the family-friendly holiday
show thats also being offered
this year, Holiday Memories,
is a good counterbalance to the
mature humor of The Santa-
land Diaries.
According to Syreeta Comb-
sCannaday, communications
director of the ensemble and
wife of Cannaday, the organiza-
tion is using that notion to its
advantage by offering a Naugh-
ty & Nice deal on Sunday,
Dec. 11. For $50, theatergoers
can see Holiday Memories
at 3 p.m., Santaland Diaries
at 7:30 p.m. and have dinner at
Marleys Brewery and Grille (18
West Main St., Bloomsburg) in
between.
AFFINITY FOR ELF
CULTURE
Anyone whos read the essay
version of The Santaland Dia-
ries or listened to Sedaris recite
pieces of it on NPR knows his
voice, as he lends a special
sense of acrimony to whatever
he writes or reads. Partly be-
cause of that, the intention with
the upcoming BTE production is
not to mimic him.
Were not interested in hav-
ing me do an impression of Da-
vid Sedaris, because that might
get a little grating, Cannaday
explained. I think that sustain-
ing a really specic character for
that long might detract from the
monologue itself.
In fact, the entire production
seems to be aimed at putting the
audience at ease. Because its
a direct address show, meaning
theres one actor who basically
speaks to the audience the entire
time, Dowd, who has previously
directed this show twice before
at BTE, noted that theyre work-
ing on creatively breaking up
the material as much as possible.
I have sort of little musical
interludes where the audience
gets a break from words, she
elaborated. And then the idea is
that youre just kind of turning
the page, because the script goes
from him rst deciding to apply
as an elf to his last day.
That ow is part of what
has made memorizing the script
easier for Cannaday, who was
already slightly familiar with it
from past productions both at
BTE and in some of his other
theatrical ventures.
David Sedaris has such
a great writing rhythm, he
explained. All of the thoughts
lead from one to the next, its
never really coming out of
nowhere, so it hasnt been that
huge a challenge to memorize. I
think the major differ-
ence is that its really
easy to psych yourself
out and really, not having
a scene partner to fall back
on. But for the most part,
the writing is so good that it
hasnt really been an issue.
Dowd noted that Cannaday,
who was one of the major pro-
ponents of doing the production
this year, seems to have a knack
for the material.
I really am watching
him going, Oh, this guy
has the chops to be a standup
comedian, she said. He has
such an ease and hes got
such a nice deadpan delivery
that just makes the text really
pop.
And if all else fails, Comb-
sCannaday is looking forward to
watching her husband don an elf
costume for all to see.
Twelve dollars, you get to
bring your own bottle and watch
Richie run around in tights?
Im sure its going to sell
out, she said, laughing.
To his credit, Cannaday
is fearless when it comes
to the festive duds.
I have a connection
to the piece because Ive
played the Easter bunny in
the past, he said. When
youre an actor look-
ing for work, you will
suspend all shame, and so
the funny costume doesnt really
bother me all that much Im
pretty naturally exuberant,
so to nd that middle ground
between David, whos com-
pletely repelled by the idea,
and me, who sort of embraces
it, is pretty fun. W
Above, Richard Can-
naday of BTE prac-
tices planking, one of
the comedic elements
hell use to break up
the monologue in The
Santaland Diaries.

his inner elf.

I
f you decide to go the We
Came As Romans show at
Eleanor Rigbys on Tuesday,
Dec. 6, you may see a few fans
sporting a distinctive brand of
band merch: Black rubber brace-
lets emblazoned with the slogan
Im alive.
For many, the phrase is simply
representative of the bands
oft-cited positive messages about
perseverance and personal
growth. For We Came As Ro-
mans guitarist and lyricist Josh-
ua Moore, however, Im alive
carries a much more resonant,
much more literal meaning.
It was pretty serious there for
a while, Moore said, describing
his bout with bacterial meningi-
tis earlier this year. Fortunately,
Im fully recovered now and the
band can continue moving for-
ward.
That Moore recovered at all is
arguably a fortunate thing in-
deed, as bacterial meningitis has
proven fatal in some cases. For
Moore, the fact that he had been
sick for several days before
being diagnosed didnt help
matters. The musician said doc-
tors initially told his parents that
it was likely their son would
come out of the ordeal with
brain damage. If nothing else,
Moores illness could have cost
him the ability to play guitar.
Somehow, Moore emerged
from the experience largely
unscathed. Before heading back
out onto the road, however, he
would have to spend several
weeks recovering at home. Anx-
ious to return to his band but in
need of some serious R&R,
Moore said he turned inward.
I was hooked up to an IV,
and I wasnt doing anything
except just sitting around,
Moore said. It gave me a lot of
time to think. I just ran through
a lot of different things in my
head. Having that kind of off
time, I was also able to sit down
with a guitar and write a lot. It
was actually really helpful.
The result? Fresh material for
We Came As Romans latest
album, Understanding What
Weve Grown to Be. Following
its September release, the album
debuted at No. 20 on the Bill-
board 200, suggesting that the
bands trademark blend of melo-
dic metalcore and elements both
electronic and symphonic con-
tinues to impress audiences.
Its very dynamic, Moore
said, explaining what advantages
the musical marriage of seem-
ingly disparate textures provides.
We started doing it back on our
EP Dreams, which we self-
released in 2008. After that, it
became part of our signature
sound. Our fans liked it, they
wanted us to continue doing it,
and we enjoy it as well. It gives
our music a lot of layers.
What may appeal more to We
Came As Romans fans than the
bands genre-bending sonic style,
though, is the bands lyrical
outlook. Unlike many of their
contemporaries, the band
which also features Eric Choi,
David Stephens, Andy Glass,
Kyle Pavone and Brian Cotton
forgoes the usual hard-rock
themes of macho chest-beating
and heartbroken finger pointing.
Instead, Moore said, its impor-
tant for We Came As Romans to
offer listeners content of a more
uplifting nature.
Its always easy to be nega-
tive, Moore said, but I think
looking at the positive side of
whatevers going on is more
rewarding in the end. Its just a
better way to be living.
Elaborating, Moore used his
own illness as an example. He
pointed out that, while his expe-
rience was an undeniably un-
pleasant one with a potentially
career-ending downside, he
ultimately survived the ordeal
and is now that much stronger
for having overcome it.
Whats more, the guitarist said
he was also able to take what
could have been a blighting
experience and turn it into a
fruitful artistic opportunity.
One of our most popular
songs off the new CD is (What
I Wished I Never Had), Moore
said. Thats one of the ones I
wrote while I was at home. I
wouldnt change that for any-
thing. W
We Came As Romans is a band that touts the benefits of positive thinking.

tech talk
By Nick Delorenzo
Special to the Weekender
T
his is the time of the year
when major wireless
phone carriers tend to
release their latest, greatest
models.
Just as soon as Id gotten over
the Motorola RAZR, Verizon
sent me the HTC Rezound for
review. Ive always liked HTC
devices the first smartphone
I owned was an HTC, powered
by Windows Mobile. My cur-
rent phone is an HTC Thunder-
bolt, and Im about to upgrade.
The Rezound is one of the two
contenders for my next phone.
And its pretty hard to beat.
The Rezound is driven by
dual core 1.5 GHz processors,
putting it in the running for the
title of Most Powerful Smart-
phone. The display is a high-
definition 720p, 4.3-inch super
LCD screen that has a greater
pixel density than the iPhone
4GS, so yes, Mac fans,
the display is more crisp
than Apples Retina. The
Rezound also features
the latest generation of
the HTC Sense touch
interface, which is abso-
lutely beautiful.
The camera is an 8
megapixel, with dual
flashes and a 28mm lens.
Photo capture is remark-
ably quick, and in a
welcome addition, there
are buttons to access the
camera, phone, e-mail
and text messages even
when the device is
locked.
One interesting feature
of the Rezound is Beats
Audio, the phone ships
from the factory with
high-quality headphones
and digital sound proc-
essing. The speakers are
capable of pumping out a
surprising amount of bass
and volume for their size.
The Rezound is also a
4G phone, so coupled
with the extremely fast
processors and the in-
credibly responsive dis-
play, browsing the Web
or streaming video is
quite smooth. There were
no lags, skips or degra-
dations when streaming
1080i video, which is
impressive even for a
high-end smartphone.
Construction is quite
solid. The case alternates
between glossy and matte black,
and the phone feels sturdy.
Its very slightly narrower and
perhaps just a bit thinner than
the HTC Thunderbolt, which is
a fairly substantial phone, so if
youre looking for something
thats ultrathin, the Rezound
may not be your phone.
All in all, this is an absolutely
superb device. If someone in
your family is looking for the
best phone this year for Christ-
mas, the Rezound is a great
choice.
As for me, Ill reserve judg-
ment until the Samsung Galaxy
Nexus is released, which is
supposed to happen sometime in
the next few weeks.
The HTC Rezound is $299.99
(with contract) from Verizon
Wireless. W
Nick DeLorenzo is director
of interactive and new media
for The Times Leader.
E-mail him at
ndelorenzo@timesleader.com.
The hard-to-beat Rezound
Nick thinks that HTCs
Rezound is an absolutely
superb device thats a
contender to be his next
smartphone.

By Ralphie Aversa
Special to the Weekender
L
et your mind rest: The
Vans Warped Tour is
returning to Toyota Pavil-
ion at Montage Mountain.
Last month, Warped Tour
officials released the full
schedule on the festivals offi-
cial website. The shows com-
mence in Salt Lake City on
June 16 and wrap Aug. 5 in
Portland, Ore. The tour stops
in NEPA Wednesday, July 18.
Over the past couple of
years, attendance locally for
the tour has spiked significant-
ly. This could be attributed to
the number of mainstream acts
who have returned to their
Warped roots on Montage
Mountain. Paramore, 3OH!3,
The Ready Set, Simple Plan,
Mike Posner, We the Kings
and The All-American Rejects
have played Toyota Pavilion
(and the surrounding parking
lots) over the past two years
alone. In the case of 3OH!3
and 2008 act Katy Perry, the
tour featured artists who at the
time of the show in NEPA,
possessed a Top 5 hit record.
3OH!3s Dont Trust Me and
Perrys I Kissed a Girl were
No. 1 on the charts when the
artists visited Moosic in 2009
and 2008 respectively.
The Warped Tour will begin
to reveal acts for the 2012
festival in December.
JUSTIN BIEBER: 2011S
MOST SEARCHED
PERSON
In August, Selena Gomez
told me that she did not buy
in to the notion that no press
is bad press.
Thats always kind of been
a part of it, Gomez said of
the amount of coverage regard-
ing her personal life, namely
her relationship with fellow
pop star Justin Bieber. I
think thats a part of everybo-
dys life when it comes to
what business they kind of
want to pursue, whether its
acting or singing, it just kind
of comes with the job, I
guess.
I strongly doubt her beau,
The Biebs, feels the same way.
Biebers name has graced
headlines this year for a num-
ber of reasons: Charity basket-
ball games, 3-D movies, a
high-profile relationship, a
holiday album and an alleged
paternity dispute.
His courtship of Gomez
continues along nicely, his
movie did great at the box
office, his album went No. 1
and it looks as if following a
DNA submission a few weeks
ago, hell be able to put Ma-
riah Yeaters claims in his
rearview mirror.
The constant trending topics
and high selling products have
also landed Bieber a new dis-
tinction: The most searched-for
person of 2011, according to
Bing.
The pop star is also the
most searched for musician and
the only male to crack the Top
10 on Bings list. The search
engine lists Kim Kardashian,
Jennifer Aniston, Lindsay
Lohan, Jennifer Lopez, Brit-
ney Spears, Katy Perry,
Megan Fox, Lady Gaga and
Miley Cyrus as the other peo-
ple among the most-searched
for this year.
While Gomez did not crack
Bings Top 10 people list, she
sits at six on the most-searched
for musicians tally, ahead of
Nicki Minaj, Rihanna,
Beyonce, and Taylor Swift. W

movie review
A
few months back, when
former Muppeteer Frank
Oz was asked about The
Muppets, Oz replied, I dont
think they respected the charac-
ters. He then excused himself
to sit silently in a darkened
room where he glared at the
floor for the next two hours.
Oz was only one of many
sour scold to publicly object to a
film he hadnt seen. There were
others, such as the people who
were upset by the fact that in
the movie Kermit lives in a
sprawling estate or that Fozzie
Bear was wearing fart shoes
(which admittedly, wasnt a
promising sign), but like most
people who are predisposed to
hate something over the tiniest,
most inconsequential reasons,
their hatred was unfounded. For
the first time in almost a quarter
of a century, the sacred corpse
of Jim Henson can briefly stop
spinning in its grave because
The Muppets is actually good.
When Gary (Jason Segel, who
also co-wrote the screenplay),
his Muppet brother Walter and
Garys girlfriend Mary (Amy
Adams) travel to Los Angeles in
order to celebrate Gary and
Marys 10-year anniversary, their
trip is sidetracked when they
discover that the Muppets have
disbanded for reasons the film
unfortunately never explains. If
the Muppets unexplained
breakup isnt enough, its also
revealed that an evil Texas oil-
man (Chris Cooper, who actual-
ly raps at one point) plans on
destroying what remains of
Muppet Studios.
Unwilling to sit back and
watch as the Muppet legacy is
carelessly swept under the car-
pet, the trio tries to convince
Kermit to reunite with his es-
tranged fellow Muppets so they
can stage a sort of Muppet
show/telethon to raise the $10
million it costs to buy back the
studio. But it wont be easy
considering that their telethon is
only going on the air because
the network couldnt find a
more suitable replacement for
the recently cancelled game
show Punch Teacher, they
cant find a celebrity willing to
host and one Muppet is unable
to reconcile their past differ-
ences with Kermit.
The Muppets has its fair
share of missteps along the way.
Theres a montage sequence set
to Starships We Built This
City that unfortunately never
morphs into a parody of or a
scathing attack on Starships
We Built This City, and al-
though never reaching the an-
noying heights of Scrappy-Doo
or Cousin Oliver, Walter is a
bland, unimpressive addition to
the Muppet family.
But these are all minor com-
plaints considering the sheer
amount of things that work in
The Muppets. Segel and com-
pany really nail the gentle edgi-
ness of the Muppets and active-
ly avoid the easy pop-culture-
based gags that infected the
series in the late 90s. The
Muppets is filled with clever
and weird little touches like the
embittered group of off-brand
Muppets called Moopets, Coop-
ers inability to laugh (instead of
laughing maniacally, his charac-
ter simply says, maniacal
laugh) and a surprisingly nu-
anced depiction of Animal.
The Muppets is a fun film
with a lot of heart. Theres lov-
ing callbacks to the original TV
show and the Henson movies as
well as a bittersweet poignancy
that adds more depth to the
proceedings than expected. The
Muppets have finally come of
age, which is why The Mup-
pets will be the first childrens
movie that will be appreciated
more by the parents.

Zooey Deschanel has made a
name for herself as an actress by
being adorably eccentric but
fresh, and her indie-pop duo She
& Him, which she fronts with M.
Ward, can be described in the
same way. The group recently
added to its hipster factor by
releasing a decidedly cool and
melodically pleasing Christmas
album, A Very She & Him
Christmas.
A collection of holiday rendi-
tions, the record opens on the
sweetly arranged The Christmas
Waltz and establishes the notion
that while arrangements may
vary, the duo never strays too far
from the original execution, as
happens so often on contempo-
rary Christmas albums.
Deschanels lilting vocals and
Wards delicate guitar hearken to
a time when kids wore galoshes
and evening programs were
broadcast over the radio. Make
no mistake, though, because
while A Very She & Him
Christmas sounds retro, it
doesnt sound dated. Instead,
songs like Ill Be Home for
Christmas, with its minimal
instrumentation and perfect vo-
cals, and Baby, Its Cold Out-
side have a timeless appeal that
can stand up to the likes of
Frank, Bing and Brenda.
Christmas Wish signals the
first vocal appearance of Him
on the album, and though he
doesnt have the same punch as
Deschanel, Wards soothing,
deeper tone complements the
structure of the song. The ukulele
adds a nice accompaniment on
Silver Bells, and Deschanels
outstanding vocals on Blue
Christmas prove that you dont
have to add a bunch of runs to be
a powerful singer. (My Kind of
Christmas by Christina Aguil-
era, anyone?)
There are no donkeys or chip-
munks to be found here A
Very She & Him Christmas is a
mellow album, with songs like
Have Yourself a Merry Little
Christmas softly and steadily
easing us into the holiday spirit.
Even on the more upbeat Sleigh
Ride and Rockin Around the
Christmas Tree, Deschanel
never lets her voice get too
worked up. To say this album
should be added to all Christmas
collections is an understatement.

This early into the musical afterlife of
Michael Jackson, its hard to know how to
react to something like Immortal, an
officially sanctioned DJ mix/score to the
new Cirque du Soleil production of the
same name.
It was compiled and recontextualized
by Kevin Antunes in much the same way
that George Martin and Giles Martin
reworked the Beatles catalog for the
Cirque production and soundtrack to
Love. Immortal is also, at its worst,
way cheesier than Love, filled with
easy-listening strings, spoken-word in-
terludes buried in spooky echo and curi-
ous pacing.
But to call it a mixtape of Jacksons
music isnt entirely accurate, because the
soundtrack is beholden to the Cirque/
Immortal story line and therefore se-
quenced not for the dance floor but for a
Las Vegas-style production. As a result, a
wildly inventive remix, such as what
Antunes does for Dancing Machine,
barely gets going before grinding to a halt
a few minutes in and were stuck with a
young Michael, surrounded by the sounds
of wild animals in the jungle, singing a
tribal version of Ben. And the composi-
tion built around Jacksons vocal hook in
Rockwells Somebodys Watching Me
serves little purpose as an audio-only
experience other than to remind listeners
that Michael made some serious artistic
missteps in his life.
But aside from a few weird choices,
none of this is Antunes fault. After all,
whod want to fiddle with Human Na-
ture, Beat It or Billie Jean, some of
the most popular songs of the last half-
century? That he mostly pulls it off is a
testament to his abilities as a sound de-
signer, though its not rich enough to
make this essential listening.

Jacko not so
'Immortal'
Theyre the voices responsible for Ro-
sanna, Hold The Line, I Cant Hold
Back and The Search Is Over. Toto and
Survivor vocalists Bobby Kimball and Jimi
Jamison, respectively, unite to produce one
of melodic rocks finest offerings this side of
1984. The album, which as expected is
heavy on the soaring vocal heights and
slickly produced sing-along choruses, sees
two warhorse vocal talents refusing to fall
prey to the ever-burgeoning Vocal Magic/
Pro Tools world.
Production by Mat Sinner of German
power-metal band Primal Fear explains the
brick-walled, muscular guitar and rhythm
angle, warding off any stale, nostalgic low-fi
dust. Wind-in-your-hair tracks like Worth
Fighting For see the vocalists trade off
verses, slamming into the chorus together.
Jamison has the better range and the more
nuanced melodic inflections, but Kimball
brings the burly soul-power. Chasing Eu-
phoria is a frantically paced highlight, a
tumbling rocker with a timely lyrical slant
while Kicking and Screaming is one of the
albums most outwardly infectious arena-
rock anthems.
The ballads are impeccable, plucked
straight out of each singers heyday. Find
Another Way softly fades in on a whisper
of orchestration, while a sparse piano begs
of sentimentality this was guaranteed Top
10 stuff 25 years ago. Your Photograph is
similarly melancholy, with the echo of hope
reflected convincingly, if not a bit saccha-
rine, with lyrics like its hard for a heart to
handle, when the candle still burns.
Tuneful, heart-on-sleeve rock n roll that
comes perfectly polished to perfection,
Kimball and Jamison make all thats old new
again. Aniche genre for sure, but one that
merits a good time, no matter what year it is.

rchaeologists excavate
artifacts and analyze envi-
ronmental changes in
order to understand ancient cul-
tures. Comprehending our cur-
rent culture while we are living it,
where consumption and aban-
donment of material items are
prevalent, is almost more of a
challenge.
In an effort to put a poetic spin
on the idea of an expendable
environment made obvious by
our consumer habits, photog-
rapher Gary Cawood has created
an ongoing collection of pho-
tographs, titled Excavation, that
will be on display at Camerawork
inside the Marquis Gallery in
Scranton. The show will open
with a reception at 6 p.m. on
Friday, Dec. 2 and will run until
Tuesday, Jan. 31.
We easily throw things away,
and we discard the environment,
Cawood said during a phone
interview with the Weekender
from Little Rock, Ark. And we
have the same idea to the land. I
mean, people love to cut down
trees, which I dont understand.
Look around, and your neighbors
cutting a tree down for seemingly
no reason. In our culture, we
dont really seem to have the
respect for the natural environ-
ment that I think other cultures
do.
The still-life photos evolved
from a venture Cawood, who is a
photography professor at The
University of Arkansas at Little
Rock, made in 2006 to an exca-
vated site called Big Rock Quar-
ry.
I had been up to this quarry
site just hiking up there, and the
rock formations were quite fasci-
nating, so thats what I started
photographing, he explained.
And ideas just sort of evolve.
From there, Cawood started
staging the photographs, adding
material objects that were usually
found on his morning walks
around his neighborhood and,
most recently, natural objects like
leaves and rotten sticks.
Cawoods work, with its juxta-
positions of natural and unnatural
objects, seems to be an effort to
display the destruction our life-
styles impose on the environ-
ment.
As a culture were so obsessed
with buying things and consum-
ing things, people buy things that
they not only cant afford but that
they dont even want, he said.
Consuming is just a habit. It has
nothing to do with real needs.
Rolfe Ross, one of the three
partners who manage Cam-
erawork, noted that Cawoods
collection has significance in
todays cultural climate.
I think thats one of the things
that he dwells on, is that were a
consumer society, so its pick up
and throw away, Ross said. And
I think he tries to illustrate that.
And yet the stuff that we throw
away ultimately decays a lot
of it, anyway.
In some of Cawoods pho-
tographs, the decay that nature
imposes on those items is appar-
ent.
And I might find something
that I put there and of course
its only been six years but
even in a years time, the rain,
wind, the oxidation, all these
things, its constantly changing,
he said. If you stage something,
you go back, something will be a
little different.
Cawood, who will be in town
for the opening, mentioned that
hes looking forward to being in
Northeastern Pennsylvania so he
can research another project hes
had on his mind.
Im interested in photograph-
ing in (NEPA), he said. So I
hope to get some familiarity with
the abandoned coal fields.
Cawood seems to be drawn to
the less conventionally beautiful
aspects of the environment, in
addition to the effects our actions
as a society have on that envi-
ronment. Through his work, hes
developed a new perspective.
What I have personally
gained (from photographing this
collection), I think, is a greater
appreciation of nature, the nat-
ural forces, and maybe to some
degree how insignificant we are.
Hes hoping those who stop in
to see the exhibit experience the
same sort of enlightenment.
Photographing rocks and dirt,
thats really elemental stuff, and
were part of something thats
much bigger, Cawood ex-
plained. And I hope that people
looking at the show would just
look more closely at whats
around them, recognize some-
thing like just the dirt below your
feet is much more interesting and
much more important than most
people think it is. W

1993
novel approach
I
magine the world absent of
those historical and fatal
gunshots that echoed across
the world on Nov. 22, 1963. In
Stephen Kings newest novel,
11/22/63, he invites readers to
do just that as they envision how
America might currently stand
had the event never occurred
the day Harvey Lee Oswald shot
John F. Kennedy.
The story is focused on two
men Al Templeton, a middle-
aged diner owner, and Jake Ep-
ping, a young English teacher.
Outside their friendship, these
men share a similar affection for
history and, most of all, for saving
the world.
As for the setting, avid readers
of Kings can take a lucky guess
as to where the story begins. No
other than Lisbon Falls, Maine
Maine, which is a tender spot for
many plots in Kings illustrious
novels.
Al is a man who in circum-
venting the past through the path
of time travel, attempts to change
history by stopping JFKs assassi-
nation. In doing so, Al believes he
can change the fate of the world
by not only saving JFK, but also
erasing the loss affiliated with
that time.
Sadly, however, Als health
condition begins to deteriorate
such that he enlists the help of
Jake to complete his unfinished
business. The only problem is that
in attempting to change the past,
the present inevitably changes as
well sometimes for the worst.
Pace varies in the novel, which
is largely due to the extensive
amount of research King conduct-
ed in writing the book. Even
considering, King manages to
intertwine history with a plot so
dramatic and compelling that he
continues to live up to the vision-
ary status that readers have all
come to know and love.
Speaking of affection, while the
themes in the novel concentrate
on history, violence and the caus-
al relationship between the two,
there is also space for a budding
relationship somehow managing
to overcome both space and time.
If you are expecting an easy
read, you are severely mistaken.
The plot pulsates through the
reader, which is perhaps the main
reason why King can so seam-
lessly captivate readers and keep
their attention even after 500
pages. Mind you, the reader will
still have nearly 500 more pages
to read, but somehow King man-
ages to keep the mechanics of the
plot constantly moving forward.
Many continue to follow King
due to his popularity and more
than 40 years of experience with
writing. However, regardless of
his fame, his writing has re-
mained in large part of its impact
on readers throughout the world.

Tallulah has
me in a tizzy
O
n Friday, Oct.
28, something
spectacular
happened. Not
only was it a
special day because the vacant
space that was formerly the
Tudor Book Shop had a new
resident, but also because of
whom that resident was. It was
a glorious day for Kingston.
It was a glorious day for
Northeastern Pennsylvania. And
it was most especially a glorious
day for fashionable people with
a thirst to shop locally. Welcome
Tallulah, a new asset to the area
with fabulous lines for men and
women.
Upon entering the store,
the feeling of excitement is
instantaneous. With a disco ball
hanging overhead, I knew this
boutique would soon become
a new stomping ground for
yours truly. I scurried from one
rack to the next admiring the
sophisticated yet affordable
items. Trying desperately not
to shop for myself but rather
do some holiday shopping
for others, I could not resist
a fabulous eccentric necklace
complete with gigantic feather
and unique red coat adorned
with fabric owers. I was sold
before I even touched the items.
And then I explored all
the labels: Robert Graham
shirts for men, William Rast
jeans, JW Los Angeles, Love
Token, Escorpion, Lulumari,
Liebeskind Berlin and Galian
New York handbags, Cayetano
Legacy Collection (discovered
on Etsy), Love and Liberty,
Johnny Was and so many
others. Frenzied by all the
different types of party dresses,
tops, handbags, tights, coats,
accessories and more, I had
to take slow breaths so as not
to max out my credit card and
empty Tallulah of its inventory.
Since owner and Kingston
native Kim Minsavage has a
passion for interior design, she
has the store set up perfectly
with your attention being drawn
A glimpse of Tallulah, which is now open in the former Tudor Book Shop in Kingston.
Tallulah
(651-653 Wyoming Ave.,
Kingston)
to each rack and shelf, leaving
nothing untouched. With lines
appropriate for teenagers to
senior citizens, Tallulah will
also be offering a wide variety
of sizes starting in the spring.
Striving to carry lines that
no one else locally carries,
Minsavage encourages the
fashion forward to suggest lines
to her. If it is unique to NEPA,
Kim will attempt to cater to her
clients. To further cater to the
customers, Tallulah also offers
loyalty programs, layaway and,
of course, gift certicates.
And only one month after
opening, Minsavage is not
slowing down. Planning already
to expand the physical store,
Tallulah will also begin carrying
mens and womens shoes.
Expect to see Australian Luxe
and Cydwoq (mens handmade
shoes) soon. What else can
you expect shortly? Bleulab,
reversible denim which will
essentially give you two pairs
of jeans in one. Glorious I say.
Simply glorious.
Currently, Tallulah is open
Monday-Saturday from 10
a.m.-5 p.m., but Minsavage will
adapt her hours to accommodate
shoppers. The special treatment
shoppers receive while
experiencing this boutique sets
it apart and makes it not only
a great place to nd high-end
fashion, but also a great place to
feel like a valued customer. And
that is shopaholic euphoria. W

bitch & brag
By Jeff and Amanda of 98.5 KRZ
Special to the Weekender
Amandas Bitch:
I love a bargain just as much as
the next shopper, but I cant even
believe the way people act on
Black Friday, and the lengths
they go for a deal. This past
Black Friday set records as far as
sales and store profits go, but the
way people treated each other in
stores was a new low.
Im talking sickening displays
of humanity across the country. I
love a good waffle once in a
while, especially after a long
night out. Scoring a waffle maker
for $2 sounds like a wonderful
steal, but not if it means literally
fighting your neighbors in the
middle of a Wal-Mart for it.
What is wrong with people? On
Thanksgiving in California, a
woman pepper sprayed her fel-
low shoppers at a Wal-Mart
all to try to clear a path to a crate
of Xboxes. Twenty people, in-
cluding children, were injured.
On Black Friday, a 61-year-old
man in West Virginia collapsed at
a Target. As he was on the
ground, dying, other shoppers
stepped over him to continue
going after discounts. (A few
nurses stopped to help him, but
he later died at the hospital.)
Outside of a Wal-Mart in Cali-
fornia, a 20-year-old man robbed
people of their coveted Black
Friday bargain purchases and
shot a man who wouldnt give up
his goods. Seriously? Thankfully,
none of the huge store riots or
fights were local, which means
our Black Friday shoppers must
keep their cool in comparison to
some. What is wrong with these
people who think its OK to get
physical with another person just
to have the opportunity to buy a
sale item? Get real!
Nothing in that store is worth
getting into a fight over, and its
not even like its free you still
have to buy it!
Jeffs Brag:
Since products always look
incredible in TV commercials, I
thought I might be able to help
decide if theyre worth it by rec-
ommending products I personally
have bought and loved.
Flavor Wave Oven/ Nu-
Wave Oven: Both are TV prod-
ucts that rock. Cooking is faster
than an oven and yes, you really
can cook frozen meat taken right
from the freezer!
Showtime Rotisserie Oven:
Just set it, and forget it! Weve all
seen the infomercial, and guess
what: Its as easy to use as they
make it look. I used mine heavily
for three years without a prob-
lem.
Austin Health Mate: This
is the only air purifier Ive ever
had that really cleaned the air.
(And since I smoke cigars, thats
pretty impressive.) Its a bit pri-
cey ($400) but worth it if you
have smokers in the house.
Magic Bullet: I know, it
sounds like a sex toy. If you
havent seen the infomercial
where this overly excited couple
makes endless drinks and des-
serts for their friends who for
some reason are all sitting around
their kitchen nook, well its a
small but high-speed blender that
is inexpensive and is a real work-
horse. I make my own protein
shakes, and it will blend just
about anything!
Heat Surge electric heat-
ers: These are the ones you see
in full-page ads that claim the
wood mantle are crafted by the
Amish and are in very limited
supply. OK, no, theyre not. And
theyre pretty weak sauce as a
heater. But, if you simply want
the ambience of a burning fire,
then I give it a thumbs up.
One last rule of thumb on TV
products, and this is just a per-
sonal theory: If at the end of the
commercial, they suddenly offer
to double your purchase, its crap!
That means you were paying
more than twice what the product
was worth. And seriously, do we
really need any more plastic
Made in China machines that
slice, dice and chop? W
Jeff loves his Magic Bullet (and not because it sounds
like a sex toy).
Is this worth hurting
another person over?
Amanda doesnt think so.

Green piece
By Jen Stevens
Special to the Weekender
M
ost likely, wherever you
sat down for your
Thanksgiving meal last
week, you probably saw a turkey
on the table, and if youre not a
vegan or vegetarian chances are
you probably ate that turkey.
The holiday season is an un-
fortunate time for turkeys, the
environment and even your
health.
Each year around this time,
nearly 72 million turkeys are
killed for traditional holiday
meals. In 2008 PETA (People
for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals) conducted a thorough
undercover investigation on a
factory farm that exposed some
very disturbing facts. PETA
investigators found that turkeys
were being tortured and in-
humanely killed. According to
the organization, employees at
the factory farm would stomp
on turkeys heads among other
things. I wont go into too much
graphic detail on the rest of the
report because its quite dis-
turbing.
A majority of the turkeys
most people eat are from these
types of factory farms. Turkeys
raised on factory farms live in
crowded warehouses with barely
any room to move. Pollutants
from these farms reach ground
water and cause water pollution,
air quality goes down and local
farms are threatened. Most fac-
tory farms will genetically alter
animals in order for them to
grow twice as fast this leads
to a painful, short life. Genet-
ically altered foods are not safe
to eat as the health consequenc-
es are still being studied.
Because of ethical and health
reasons, some people have de-
cided to ditch turkey this holiday
season for a vegetarian or vegan
meal. To keep everyone happy,
there are a lot of ways you can
stick to a traditional meal with-
out harming any animals. In-
stead of using meat-based broth
in your holiday stuffing, try a
vegetable broth. Vegan turkeys,
known as tofurkeys, can be
found at grocery stores and are
actually pretty tasty.
If you just cant live without
the turkey, then try getting a
free-range turkey. Free-range
animals in general are much
healthier and live in an area
where they are free to roam.
According to the USDA, in the
United States, free-range regu-
lations do not specify the quality
or size of the outside range so
sometimes the term free-range
is not what it seems to be. To
make sure your turkey had a
happy life, I would suggest
going to a local farm to see
exactly how the animals are
raised. Forks Farm, located in
Orangeville, is a great place to
purchase chicken and turkey that
has been raised outside in the
fresh air and sunshine. If youre
serious, make sure to place your
order in advance as they sell out
fast.
For more information on
Forks Farm, visit www.forks-
farmmarket.com. To purchase a
tofurkey for your next holiday
meal, visit www.tofurky.com, W
Go free-range
or faux
Free-range birds or tofurkeys are greener, more
compassionate alternatives to factory-farmed turkeys.

the operative word), reading, social media (fancy
term for Facebook creeping), rooting for my
Buffalo Bills and Sabres, Syracuse Orange and
New York Yankees.
Favorite quote: I feel so strongly that deep
and simple is far more essential than shallow and
complex. Mister Rogers.
Favorite thing about the area: Low cost of
living, proximity to New York City.
Favorite movie: Casino.

about me: I attended Catholic schools my entire
life, but Im also part Jewish.
One thing Ive always wanted to do: Host
my own TV show.
What I wanted to be when I grew up: A
sports broadcaster.
Community involvement: Volunteered
in the past for The Delta Medix Foundation

sorry mom&dad
By Justin Brown
Weekender Correspondent
I
went to high school with a
girl who blamed wearing the
same clothes all the time on
her house catching on fire. Bull-
shit! The same girl went to Ala-
bama for a week and came back
speaking in full Southern twang.
Fact is she was poor and mental-
ly unstable. I used to think she
was the craziest girl I ever met,
until I met Krazy Kelly.
One night my friend Mandy
and I were sitting in my bed-
room at the fraternity house
wondering what we were going
to eat. Since the catered dinner I
got at the house that night was
just a bowel movement waiting
happen, we needed a Plan B.
Maybe that weird Kelly girl
who just shows up with Jell-O
shots for your parties will make
us some food, suggested Man-
dy.
For some reason, Mandy had
her number, so we called her
and explained how we were
hungry and broke. Since she
always showed up to my frats
parties alone, we figured she
would be happy to be included
in our company.
Kelly told us she had no food,
but would buy us pizza if we
wouldnt mind waiting for her to
return something she just bought
at the store so she could afford
it.
After accompanying her to
return shit so she could afford to
buy us food, we were stuck
hanging out with her for the rest
of the night.
Im having a big luau party
tomorrow night, she bragged
after finally taking us home.
You have to come. Bring your
roommates!
Interested in free alcohol
and to see what her friends were
like Mandy and I went to the
party. We brought our room-
mates, too, as she requested.
As the night went on, we
couldnt help but notice that
nobody else showed up to this
party.
Early in the night, Kelly
passed out, and naturally, I be-
gan looking through her things.
Look at her calendar! I
alerted Mandy and our room-
mates. We just met this girl and
all of our birthdays are marked
on her calendar! What a psy-
cho.
So, we did what any normal
person would do: We stole her
alcohol, vandalized her apart-
ment, peed on her and never
talked to the crazy bitch again!
Sorry, Mom & Dad, for ma-
nipulating a girl with no friends
for a pizza. Boy, did that back-
fire W

Why can't we
be friends?
Kellys luau was a party Justin will never forget.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
Although overlooking them would be
kinder, sometimes problems are too diffi-
cult or disturbing to ignore. Gently ac-
knowledge them, either to the person in
question or those whod notice if you
started putting extra distance between
yourself and that person. Glossing over
and ignoring whats actually happening
isnt a viable long-term (or even short-
term) solution, but that doesnt mean it
needs to become a huge drama, either.
This week, figure out the best (usually
kindest and most rational, mature and
low-key) way to bring this up, so that it
doesnt need to be brought up again, ever.
CAPRICORN(DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
Just as clouds have silver lining, bless-
ings have dark sides. It might be lucky to
have a stunningly beautiful partner, a high-
paying job or to win the lottery, but they
can have unguessed downsides. Perhaps
the beautiful lovers a boor or makes them
feel plain and ugly by comparison. The
high-paying job may make someone pres-
tigious and rich, but also lonely, stressed
and with no time to enjoy the fruits of their
labors. Winning the lottery could destroy
someones trust in others sincerity and
damage valuable relationships. Youre
lucky. If you think the grass is greener
elsewhere, look again; it might not be as
good as you think.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
Mean girls may rule the school in junior
high, but theres no reason they should
have any real power in adult life. There are
ways and ways to give these unpleasant
people what they deserve, and I hope you
do, but this time, calmly (and probably
privately) explaining how distasteful and
unacceptable their childish behavior is may
be your best bet. Your goal is to end the
bullying without becoming a bully your-
self, nor cause undue drama. The correct
course here may not be the most emotion-
ally satisfying one, but results matter more
than vengeance, right?
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH20)
Theres other peoples business and
theres your business, and which is which
isnt usually a big mystery. Sometimes,
though, the question of whether or not you
should butt in isnt altogether clear. Nat-
urally, such a decision mustnt be made
lightly, given the rather dramatic conse-
quences of your involvement (or lack
thereof), so carefully weighing both op-
tions is important. But neither should you
allow your choice to be made by default;
since times an issue here, you need to
make up your mind faster than youre used
to or want to so get on it.
ARIES (MARCH21-APRIL19)
Diving into conflict when you must is
healthier than ignoring issues or bottling
feelings until they explode. However, even
if choosing whether or not to fight your
battles isnt really a question, deciding
when and where to do so still should be.
There are times when youre more likely to
get the results you hope for, and times
when fighting will have less (or more) of a
negative impact on people who are tangen-
tially involved (or simply nearby). Consid-
er all those factors before you next decide
to fight the good fight, and consider biting
your tongue if delaying it will be better for
all concerned.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
Rocking the boat can be scary. Even if
you feel so bogged down, trapped and
frustrated that shaking things up seems to
be the only way to move forward, many
Bulls are still reluctant to do so. Yes, by
making the changes you have in mind, you
could capsize the boat youre in. But thats
simply a risk you must take, because you
already know that being stuck exactly here
isnt working for you. If you proceed wise-
ly and communicate well, theres a possi-
bility of keeping much of what you have,
even while opening the door to new hori-
zons go for that. And if the boat sinks,
never mind youve always been a strong
swimmer.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
Holidays can be volatile enough without
you stirring the pot. Start psyching your-
self up to be the calm voice of reason this
season. Mentally role play stressful scena-
rios and how youre going to choose to
react to them instead of getting worked up.
If everyone did this, holidays would be a
time of pure joy instead of the general mix
of happiness and high drama they can
sometimes turn into. Of course, almost no
one does, and this year, your mellowing,
rational influence could make all the dif-
ference between a wonderful holiday and a
barely tolerable (or downright miserable)
one.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
When youve suffered for a prolonged
period of time, its very easy for such
misery to become habitual. Even once you
escape the source of your distress be it
relationship, job, crappy childhood or
traumatic circumstance you may dis-
cover that you continue to carry a piece of
it in your head. That stupid voice contin-
ues to berate or threaten you in some man-
ner often in such a way that you mani-
fest a similar scenario again. Of course, its
you whos the source of your own pain
now; however, silencing it isnt necessarily
easy. Luckily, though, this week will give
you a fantastic opportunity to, if not shut
that voice up completely, at least turn
down its volume.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
Whats right is whats right, and standing
up for that is always a good thing. Even
(and perhaps especially) if you were on the
wrong side of an issue before, fighting for
the right side now doesnt make you a
hypocrite it makes you someone whos
come to their senses. Dont dread the con-
sequences of finally stepping up. Eagerly
anticipate them, because theyll mostly be
positive, pleasurable and celebratory. Only
the stubborn morons still on the wrong
side of the line will dare to criticize you
for it; the rest of us will admire you.
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
When you ask someone to do something
and they follow your instructions, but not
in the way you expected, you dont exactly
have a right to get pissed off at least at
them. You can be vexed with yourself for
not being specific, but directing annoyance
at others for not being mind readers isnt
just naive, its a source of unnecessary
drama. What you intended is of course
perfectly obvious to you, and even if you
believe it should have been just as clear to
them, it wasnt. Let this be a lesson to you;
if you want something done right, you
should be crystal clear on just what that
means, or, of course, simply do it yourself.
LIBRA(SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
For years, I had trouble sharing what
was going on in my life; if things were
going great, I didnt want to talk about
them too much, out of superstitious fear
that Id jinx them. And if I was at a low
point, I didnt feel like it was much fun to
share that or make people feel burdened by
my troubles. At some point, I realized that
both attitudes are actually a bit selfish, and
that people mostly want to share both good
times and bad ideally, in balance. That
balance, of course, is your forte. Since that
strength will serve you so well this week,
celebrate and exercise it!
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)
Youre a big believer in letting people
make their own mistakes, but when the
consequences will result in others suf-
fering, you must intervene. Figuring things
out on your own, and screwing up along
the way, is a huge part of life, but occa-
sionally someone wiser gets to step in and
teach the lesson in a kinder way, with
fewer awful repercussions. This time, you
get to play that wise teacher. Sure, your
lesson might not be as effective as the
one life wouldve taught, but it should still
do the trick, and spare more than one
person needless pain and suffering. Thats
reason enough to step up. W

Ride of
the Week
By Michael Golubiewski
Special to the Weekender
I like owning an Ambassador, its a rare
car, you very rarely see another one at car
shows or out on the road, Benson says.
The Ambassador was the top-of-the-line
automobile produced by AMC from 1958
through 1974. It was also known as the
Rambler Ambassador for a time.
I bought it from a neighbor, Benson
says. Her husband died, and it just sat
under their carport for years and years. Took
a little work to get it in running condition
again. W
1973
