Online comment
of the week.
Quick question: does anyone
know if the “five second rule”
also applies to liquids?
The Weekender has 10,121
Facebook fans. Find us now at
Facebook.com/theweekender
I will never cease to be amazed
at the will of a small group of
fans of zombie movies.
On Sept. 12, the Weekender
staff assembled a group of mod-
els and makeup artists in the
alley outside JVW, Inc. in Scran-
ton with a harebrained scheme –
make these people members of
the undead and have them chase
a willing victim.
The result was a lot of fun, as
evidenced by this week’s cover
story and accompanying photos.
Makeup artists Dolores
Moyles, Jim O’Hora, and Da-
nielle M. Quinn and models
Heather Brodt, Katie Gattuso,
John and Lyndsey Hughes, Do-
minique Kozuch, Jessica Man-
ning, Kris Marconi, and Jillian
Soprano joined staff writer Rich
Howells and I as members of the
undead who hunted down model
Jacinta Appel – a trooper who,
among other tasks, climbed a
treacherous fence between a
downtown Scranton parking
garage and hobby shop.
While we learned that some
people smile when they scream,
we also learned one thing that’s
common in most zombie films.
Ordinary people, whether they’re
strangers or not, will unite under
unusual circumstances for a
common goal.
Of course, it’s a lot simpler to
say you’ll join a photo shoot than
it is to, for example, join a roam-
ing horde of survivors when the
dead walk the earth.
I hope I’ll find the same level
of camaraderie should the latter
happen sooner than the former.
Inside, you’ll find more good-
ies from beyond the grave, in-
cluding Rich’s interview with
“Night of the Living Dead” star
Judith O’Dea and IronE Single-
ton, the actor who portrays T-Dog
in AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”
Both will appear at “Infect
Scranton” this weekend as the
event shambles through Scranton
and Taylor.
We’ve also got the details on a
self-defense course specially
tailored towards fighting off the
undead. One trainer’s tip? If you
happen to rip off a zombie’s arm,
beat them with it.
Good advice in just about any
situation.
Enjoy this week’s edition, and
thanks for reading.

KIRBY CENTER
HAS BUSY SPRING
It was announced Friday that
legendary comedian, actor, and
philanthropist, Bill Cosby, will
return to the F.M. Kirby Center
for the Performing Arts (71
Public Square, Wilkes-Barre)
on Friday, April 5 at 8 p.m.
Tickets go on sale Friday, Sept.
21 at 10 a.m.
One of America’s most prolific
comedians, Cosby has dazzled
generations of fans with his
comedy routines, also captured
on his iconic albums and best-
selling books such as “Father-
hood” and the groundbreaking
“The Cosby Show.”
Time Magazine called the
long-running sitcom “an encou-
raging sign of maturity in matters
of race,” and “The Cosby Show”
dominated the number 1 spot for
years, earning nearly-unanimous
critical praise.
For his philanthropic efforts
and positive influence as a per-
former and author, Cosby was
honored with a 1998 Kennedy
Center Honors Award. In 2002,
he received the Presidential Med-
al of Freedom, America’s highest
civilian honor, and he is the 2009
recipient of the Mark Twain Prize
for American Humor.
In a 2009 interview with the
Weekender, Cosby spoke fondly
yet tongue firmly implanted in
cheek of the hot dogs from Abe’s
(419 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre)
that he enjoys while in town.
“I go in there and they lay out
250 hot dogs, and I go down the
line, and I make a choice of two
of them. And they’ll prepare
them and put onions and a tea-
spoon of chili. In the dressing
room, I’ll eat ’em and open up a
bottle of Evian and a high-blood-
pressure pill,” he said.
In addition, the Kirby an-
nounced Monday that the NBC
reality/talent show is bringing it’s
live version of “America’s Got
Talent” to Wilkes-Barre on
March 16 at 8 p.m.
The “America’s Got Talent
Live: All-Stars Tour” will feature
the most popular acts from the
show’s last two seasons, and it
will be hosted by special tour
emcee Jerry Springer.
Springer hosted the second and
third seasons of “America’s Got
Talent” and has hosted “Amer-
ica’s Got Talent Live,” a show on
the Las Vegas Strip that features
the winner of each season as the
main performance.
A full line-up for the live,
national tour is yet to be an-
nounced.
FRIENDS CELEBRATE
A LIFE LOST
A benefit event for the family
of the late Marie Blizzard, who
passed away on Sept. 7, is set for
Sept. 23 from 4-10 p.m. at the
River Street Jazz Café (667 N.
River St.,Plains). Performers
will include Stingray, West Side
Blues Band, Still Hand String
Band, and George Wesley’s
Small Ax Orchestra, according
to event planner Charlie Singer.
Admission if $10 at the door,
and additional donations will be
accepted. All funds raised will
help Blizzard’s family with fu-
neral costs, Singer said.
BLOGCON COMETH
NEPA BlogCon, a daylong
conference and networking event,
is set for Sept. 29 at Luzerne
County Community College.
The event is designed to bring
together bloggers of all experi-
ence levels, as well as those
interested in marketing, social
media, and communicating
through the internet. All proceeds
will benefit The Arc of Luzerne
County & the NEPA Veterans
Multicare Alliance.
Tickets are $65, and student
tickets are available for $25 with
proof of valid school ID. They
can be purchased online at ne-
pablogcon.com, and admission
includes breakfast and lunch
refreshments; a SWAG bag; and
admission to all sessions, the
keynote, and after-party.

news of the weird
By Chuck Shepherd
Weekender Wire Services
SIGNATURE WEAPON
School officials in Grand
Island, Neb., told Hunter
Spanjer that the way he signs
his name violates the schools’
anti-weapons policy and that
he’ll have to abandon it. Hun-
ter is 3 1/2 years old, deaf,
fluent in the language Signing
Exact English, and uses a
hand flourish as his unique
signature (registered with
SEE), except that officials say
the flourish looks like Hunter
is threatening with a weapon.
At press time, Hunter’s par-
ents were still negotiating
with officials.
MAKE THE DIME,
DO THE TIME
Many Americans are
still outraged that no
major banking offi-
cials were punished
for the malpractices
that produced the 2008
financial collapse.
However, in July, Ri-
chard Eggers, age 68
and with an otherwise-
unblemished record,
was fired by Wells
Fargo -- only because
of a 49-year-old con-
viction for attempting
to rig a laundromat
machine by making a
“dime” out of card-
board. Wells Fargo
said its hands were
tied by a new federal
law requiring dismiss-
al of anyone with past
convictions for “trans-
actional crimes”
(aimed at identity theft
and money-laundering). (Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Corpo-
ration, which administers the
law, has a waiver procedure,
but the process is complicat-
ed, and Wells Fargo said it
feared being fined if it did not
terminate Eggers promptly.)
NO COAXING
THE COPS
Two hours after an early
morning multiple-shooting in
Detroit on Sept. 1, a 36-year-
old man reported to a fire
station to turn himself in.
However, firefighters were
unable to persuade police to
come arrest him, and eventu-
ally, reported WXYZ-TV, the
firefighters put the man in a
taxi and sent him to a police
station.
UNHAPPY ENDING
A 30-year-old man in Provi-
dence, R.I., told police in
August that he was the victim
of a sexual assault, and police
are investigating. The man
said he had gone to the North
Main Street Spa for a profes-
sional massage and was un-
able to avoid a sex act admin-
istered by his “masseuse,” “Yo
Yo.” (The Providence Journal
did not publish his name be-
cause he claims to be the
victim of a sex crime.)
BLAME IT
ON THE RAIN
In July, Labor Party counci-
lors in the Netherlands de-
manded that weather forecast-
ers be punished for incorrect
predictions -- since poor
weather drives down resort
business, resulting in slower
hiring. One hotelier in Hoek
van Holland lamented that the
forecasters, ironically, were
getting worse “(d)espite hav-
ing more forecasting tools
than ever before.” (A week
before that, tourist managers
in Belgium reportedly called
for “less pessimistic fore-
casts,” and one urged meteo-
rologists “to pay as much
attention to sun as they do to
rain.”)
NICE GUYS
GET EJECTED
In a lower-level Norwegian
soccer league match in May,
player Talat Abunima was
ejected for arguing with a
referee who had just given
him the benefit of a penalty.
He was not fouled, he insist-
ed. “(I) tripped over my own
feet,” he said later. “It was
unbelievably clumsy of
me and ... I felt I had
to speak out.” The
referee first warned
Abunima (a yellow
card) for complaining
and finally red-carded
him, telling a local
newspaper afterward,
“It was a clear penalty.
The player got it all
wrong. I don’t think
the players know the
rules properly.”
A LITTLE
GUN SHY
The two robbers who
walked into the 7-
Eleven in Arlington,
Va., in August appar-
ently neglected to coor-
dinate in advance and
thus left empty-handed.
As the first man pulled
a gun and demanded
money, the second, a
few steps behind,
tossed a firecracker on
the floor, apparently to
intimidate the clerk. However,
it mainly served to scare the
gunman, who dropped his
pistol and ran out the door.
TTYL, YOLO TWEETER
Five young men died in
Ontario, Calif., in September
when their car rolled over as
many as five times after
speeding through a red light
at 1:45 in the morning. One of
the occupants had sent Twitter
messages during the ride re-
ferring to being “drunk,” “go-
ing 120 drifting corners,” and,
daringly (in two messages),
“YOLO” (“you only live
once”).
WASH YOUR HANDS WHEN
YOU’RE DONE
An unidentified mother of twins was
photographed at the Thanksgiving
Point Deli in Lehi, Utah, in September
apparently toilet-training her toddlers
at a table. Another patron witnessed
the mother’s bringing in what at first
glance looked like booster seats, but
then the momundid the kids’ jumpsuits
and placed them on the potties. A spo-
kesperson for the deli (located10 miles
south of Salt Lake City) said the inci-
dent was over by the time it was re-
ported to her, but the witness put a
photo on the Internet (picked up by TV

Most people only dream of
singing in their favorite band, but
Rachel Antony-Levine lives it
every day.
While she came singing “out
of the womb,” playing piano and
performing in musicals around
age 7, taking up the flute by 9,
and writing and performing
songs at 13, she wasn’t looking
for a career in music, but it soon
worked out that way.
Antioquia formed seven years
ago when guitarist Adley Penner
and drummer Craig Miller met in
Ecuador and then moved to Co-
lumbia in the department of
Antioquia, where they not only
took their namesake but wrote
songs that would eventually
become the band’s first album.
Two years later, they moved to
San Francisco, adding other
members and fans like Antony-
Levine and her future husband,
Tomas Salcedo. The pair was so
enamored by the band’s eccentric
mix of rock, funk, and West
African percussion that they
asked the group to perform at
their wedding. But just after
Antioquia booked a huge East
Coast tour, singer Maddy Strei-
cek quit the band. The thought
that she could replace her didn’t
even cross her mind.
“I wasn’t even thinking about
it. I was just thinking, ‘Oh gosh,
what is Antioquia going to do
without Maddy because she’s
such an amazing presence and
force in the band?’ And then
Tomas said to me, ‘Well, babe, I
was thinking what if we just quit
everything and join Antioquia?’
And I told him that’s ridiculous.
There’s no way. I was right on the
verge of finishing school, and we
were planning on moving to
Chile together,” Antony-Levine
recalled.
“I started thinking about it, and
I figured out a way that I could
kind of save my degree and also
join the band. Then I realized
that this was just a pretty in-
credible opportunity that prob-
ably wouldn’t come around
again.”
After rehearsing for just three
weeks, with Salcedo joining on
guitar, they hit the road and
haven’t looked back since, even
playing their own wedding.
The group just released their
third full-length album and their
first with the husband and wife
team, “Viajero,” in May, which
continues to broaden their unique
sound.
“I don’t know if it was ever a
conscious decision, but Adley
and Craig really set the tone early
on for what making music in
Antioquia was going to be like.
That process was going to have
no filter whatsoever. Anything is
fair game, anything that we bring
to the table that sounds good,
that’s fun to play, that’s going to
work. If it’s harder than we can
play at the time, then all the
better. We’ll just practice and try
to make it work,” she explained.
“That vibe is just incredibly
open, incredibly eclectic, in-
credibly ambitious, and really
fun. Nothing’s ever allowed to be
boring. If we get bored, we
changed something. That’s how it
works.”
Much like their music, if Anto-
ny-Levine gets bored of describ-
ing the band to others one way,
she’ll simply “change it up.”
“For a while, I was telling
people that we do Afro-Colum-
bian psychedelic love funk,
which people really like but I
don’t know if they really under-
stood what it meant. Now some-
times I’ll just say progressive
rock mixed with traditional
rhythms, but then other times I
say it’s Primus meets FelaKuti.
So maybe I should tell people all
three of those,” she mused.
When the band plays the 2012
Meeting of the Minds Festival in
Equinunk on Sept. 22, she hopes
the music will resonate with
audiences, no matter how they
describe it.
“I love the process of a new
crowd. I love seeing what they go
through because it’s pretty stan-
dard. The first song – we usually
hit them with something weird
right in the beginning so they
know what they’re getting into.
We don’t want to start off too
digestible because it could give
you a cramp later on,” Antony-
Levine described.
“Usually people are confused-
…Some of them are smiling
while they’re confused. But then
usually we’ll play a song that’s
just kind of like straight dance
funky that just gets them on the
dance floor…Then, by the time
we get down on the floor with
our traditional drums, which we
do at least twice every show,
people are in the process of los-
ing their minds. That is the mo-
ment when we’re like, ‘Great,
now we’re all in this moment
together and we can just lose our
s--t completely.” W

nfect Scranton,
Northeast
Pennsylvania’s
first ever zombie
convention, has it all for
genre enthusiasts – a themed
pub crawl, 5K race, panel
discussions, movie screenings,
music, and even a brunch.
Possibly the most essential
aspect is the celebrity guests,

giving fans a chance to meet
the cast and crew of their
favorite horror films and
TV shows and take away an
autograph or a story worth
bragging about.
Each guest has many of
their own stories to tell,
though few may have as much
insight into the origins of the
zombie craze as Judith O’Dea,
who starred as Barbara in
“Night of the Living Dead.”
The 1968 George A. Romero
film was the first to introduce
zombies and establish all the
“rules” the undead cannibals
live, or die, by.
“As time went by and the
popularity of the film grew,
I became more and more
amazed of the longevity of the
concept of zombies,” O’Dea
recalled in a recent phone
interview. “The way George
did it had its own uniqueness,
so initially, I didn’t question
whether or not this was going
to be around for a long time.”
Simply thrilled to be in her
first feature film, she had no
idea at the time she returned
home to the Pittsburgh area
to shoot “Night” at the age
of 23 that it would be hailed
as such a classic decades
later. Initial reactions to the
shocking gore and
violence also gave
little indication
that this
would be the case.
“My parents had calls from
people saying, ‘How could
you let your daughter be in
such a violent film?’” she
acknowledged. “We were on
the verge of changing the way
horror films were made. Yes,
horror films became much
more graphic – so, so violent
– and I guess we had a hand
in that. Does it bother me? A
little bit, but still, I was a part
of something special. That’s
what I hold dear.”
Those distracted by its
graphic content often missed
the other aspect Romero
became known for in all his
zombie films – the social
commentary. The zombies set
the stage, but the real players
are those struggling to survive,
including the late Duane Jones
as Ben.
O’Dea insists he was
hired on the strength of his
audition rather than the color
of his skin, but the fact that
he was cast as the hero broke
ground and forced viewers to
look deeper into the movie’s
observations on human nature.
“When that film came out,
nobody made a big deal in the
script about Duane being a
black man in 1968. That’s one
of the most important things
I cherish about the movie and
one of the things I think that
has made it remain strong all
these years,” she emphasized.
“(Also) I think that the way
George told it, the way he
kept it moving made it more
a docu-drama…People said,
‘Oh my God, if this ever really
happened…Could it happen?’
It brought a sense of realism
with its documentary-type feel
to the storytelling.”

Both of these aspects
influenced writer Robert
Kirkman when he created
“The Walking Dead,” the
comic-book-turned-TV-
show that has only further
popularized zombies in
modern pop culture.
“The Blind Side” star
IronE Singleton, perhaps best
known for playing T-Dog
in “The Walking Dead”
series on AMC, is another
guest at Infect Scranton who
appreciates this facet of the
zombie mythos.
“It’s symbolic of the world
we live in today, from…
race and religion - there’s a
nice dose of that in there - to
politics. If you think about
our politics today, it’s kind
of scary,” Singleton told
The Weekender. “You see
that these decisions that our
leaders are making serve as a
direct influence on the people,
and it seems as though these
decisions are making some
people feel like they have to
kind of resort to these zombie
apocalyptic-type tactics in
order to survive.”
Much in the same way
that “House of Wax” starring
Vincent Price terrified O’Dea
as a child, Singleton’s mother
used to take him to various
“Friday the 13th” and “A
Nightmare on Elm Street”
movies that scared him so
much that he avoided the
genre as an actor.
“It kinds of traumatized me
a bit, so I was a little hesitant
at first (to audition). Then I
found out who was on the
project and changed my mind
quickly – (developer) Frank
Darabont and (producer) Gale
Anne Hurd, who are legends,
living legends,” Singleton
admitted.
“I just knew that it had the
potential to be good because
of who was overseeing the
project…The entire cast, we
all thought the same way. The
writing is good, the execs are
awesome, the crew is great.
Let’s see what happens.”
What happened was record
setting. The show became an
instant, award-nominated hit,
receiving 9 million viewers
in its second season finale
and ranking as the number
one drama series in basic
cable history in several
key demographics. Season
three, set to premiere Oct.
14, Singleton promises will
be “apocalyptic,” excitingly
spelling out “O-M-G.”
“Somebody compared it
to if you took all those great
shows that have been on TV
like ‘24,’ ‘Lost,’ to you name
it - ‘The Walking Dead’ first
episode will be even better
than all of them put together
combined,” he enthused. “I
think people are going to get
a decent dose of T-Dog and
find out a little bit more about
him.”
It’s a character that he
related to from the beginning.
“T-Dog’s a good guy. T-Dog
has experienced a lot of
hardship…comparing it to my
life story. T-Dog is one that is
willing to make the ultimate
sacrifice if it’s going to help
someone else or to better
help humanity. He has a great
heart, and he’s all about right
over wrong, good over evil,”
Singleton described.
In the end, “The Walking
Dead” even converted
him into a “walker” fan,
becoming a “Green Brigade
Commander” of the online
Zombie Survival Crew and
writing a song about the show.
Attending the convention
specifically for its charitable
aspects, he is looking forward
to sharing the love with fans
along with O’Dea.
“Being able to talk to the
people who have sustained
(“Night”) is one thing I love
more than anything else.
That’s really why I go to these

Despite representing two
different generations of
survivors, they may also share
a little mutual adoration for
each other’s work.
“(‘Night’) was probably
the first zombie movie I
ever saw…I was freaked
out,” Singleton said. “I’ve
seen pretty much a lot of the
other zombie movies since
then…but definitely ‘Night
of the Living Dead’ is one
that is most memorable. It
was probably a lot more real
than the rest of them, maybe
because it was the first.”
“I think ‘The Walking Dead’
…is incredibly well done,”
O’Dea added. “That they have
spent so much money and
so much time on the zombie
theme blows my mind.” W
‘Night of the Living Dead’ actress Judith O’Dea, left, and actor IronE Singleton, center at right with fellow cast members of
‘The Walking Dead’ , are each featured in this weekend’s events at Infect Scranton.

self-defense techniques on
Saturday, Sept. 22 from 3-4
p.m. at Riverside Jr./Sr. High
School (310 Davis St., Taylor)
during Infect Scranton.
Thomas normally offers
appointment-only classes in
Tsunami self-defense, a co-ed
reality-based, street smart
course; Tsunami combative,
Taylor self-defense expert tweaking techniques
for local zombie convention
a more aggressive form of
self-defense; Girl on Guard,
a women’s-only self-defense
class; and Mushin-Do, the most
traditional self-defense system
with a colored belt rank system.
While he also holds
community presentations on the
importance of standard self-
defense throughout the year,
his course on preparing for the
onslaught of the undead will be
a first.
“We’re taking real self-
defense techniques that we
would apply to anyone, and
we’re tweaking those moves
slightly to be more aware of
teeth and fingernails so you can
avoid becoming infected,” he
said. “It’s going to be as real as
we can make it.”
Giving a real demonstration
includes having his would-
be attackers dressed as the
living dead, including fellow
instructor Shanta Lee and some
students from Riverside who
have worked with Thomas in
the past.
Essential self-defense,
whether it’s for the end of the
world or the end of the week,
rely on a few key points.
“Being aware of your
surroundings and the
environment around you is
key,” Thomas said. “You also
should know who is around
you. Is there more than one
zombie or thug? Those things
are key. All self-defense, before
any techniques or martial arts
moves are applied, start with
how you conduct yourself and
how your carry yourself in
public.
“In all seriousness, every
more that we’re showing is
a reality-based self-defense
move.”
While the tactics are real,
there’s a lot of fun to be had
with the tongue-in-cheek
preparation for the fallout.
“It’s going to be a blast,”
Thomas said with a laugh.
“My biggest fear, actually, is
that people who are hardcore
zombie fans will say a certain
move wouldn’t work against a
zombie.”
Should he find himself in
Raccoon City, Evans City, or
any other town plagued by the
undead, Thomas said that he’d
chose a “very large machine
gun with a huge clip and lots
of ammo” in order to get out
alive. If one wasn’t available,
he’d wield a samurai sword.
“I trained in samurai swords,
so I’m proficient in those. Last
resort would be a machete,” he
said. W

Rob Thomas’ traditional
self-defense classes, visit

F
ilms and comic
books may carry tips
on the best ways to
kill a zombie, but
the best offense may be a good
defense.
That’s why Rob Thomas, 39,
sensei of the 570 Dojo (R. 418
S. Main St., Taylor), is excited
to present a unique brand of
Rob Thomas, standing,
and Shanta Lee from the
570 Dojo rehearse their
zombie defense tactics
ahead of ‘Infect Scranton.’

Drive-By Truckers frontman
Patterson Hood has been syn-
onymous with a prolific, sympa-
thetic narrative of the American
South. Hood’s penchant for the
third-person realism of Joe No-
body’s everyday existence in a
brutal socio-economic wasteland
litters Truckers’ classics like
2004’s epic “The Dirty South.”
On this, his third solo release,
Hood is less a mouthpiece for
Rebel discontent, instead playing
the bittersweet examiner of all
things life-affirming as well as
life-taking.
Hood’s songwriting has always
been sharp. His snapshots of a
beaten-down drunken binge are
in focus on opener “12:01,” Hood
vividly recalls crossing a county
line “to where the liquor laws are
different.” The acoustic thump of
“Leaving Time” is an ode to the
emotions swirling before heading
out on tour, family man Hood in
slightly demure posturing tells of
“doing what you’re told without
a fuss, running the errands and
loading the bus.”
The familiar craggy Drive-By
Truckers guitar crunch is present
in “Better Off Without,” as Hood
gives barbed-wire testimony to
an impending disastrous break-
up. Hearing lines like “I only
held her down until she stopped
fighting” is at once raw and
cathartic.
Whereas the characters and
situations in his Truckers output
are usually left with a sense of
non-resolution and awkward
discomfort, Hood’s work here is
treated to a quiet sense of opti-
mism and awareness.
In an album mostly void of the
Truckers’ triple-guitar bombast,
Hood’s country-inflected roots
ramble lets this material inhale a
deep breath of contemplation, as
seen in the tribute to a friend
since passed in “Come Back
Little Star” - Hood’s desperate
piano accompaniment echoing
pain with each note.
A deeply personal statement
from a songwriter that knows
how to capture life in a bottle,
this solo set is Hood on his most
sincere musical footing. W

“Sun” doesn’t mimic Marshall’s last origi-

'Sun' shines
with past power
Listening to Pink’s new album is like
watching a reality show about the ups and
downs of her relationship with her hus-
band, motorcycle racer Carey Hart: She’s
over him at times, under him at others.
There are fights, and makeups, and then
more breakups. There are “I hate yous”
and “I love yous.”
And all of it makes for good listening.
“The Truth About Love,” the singer’s
sixth release, is an exceptional album that
takes you through Pink’s rollercoaster of
emotions, as her scratchy voice pierces on
songs to create not just enjoyable tunes,
but beautiful ones. Like 2008’s “Fun-
house,” on which Pink detailed her then-
estrangement from her husband, Hart
remains the centerpiece of Pink’s emo-
tions.
“I hate you, I really hate you so much I
think it must be true love,” she sings over
a fun beat on “True Love,” which gets a
cute assist from Lily Rose Cooper (aka
Lily Allen). Pink wants her lover to return
on the rock-filled “How Come You’re Not
Here,” she’s explosive on first single
“Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” and wonder-
ing why love went wrong on the eerie and
beat-driven “Where Did the Beat Go,”
singing lyrics like “I was naked and wait-
ing for you to come back” and “you
couldn’t see anything beyond ‘your baby’s
momma’” (the couple had their first child
last year).
“Walk of Shame” is hilarious, sassy,
upbeat and signature Pink. “Beam Me
Up” is slow and gorgeous, and “Just Give
Me a Reason” is an amazing, bluesy duet
with Nate Ruess of fun.
The album, which also features Emi-
nem and was mostly produced by Greg
Kurstin, continues to showcase Pink’s
versatility: This firecracker can pretty
much sing a song from any genre. W

movie review
For those who haven’t been
keeping track, “Resident Evil:
Retribution” marks the fifth
entry in the inexplicably popular
“Resident Evil” franchise.
Yes. The fifth entry.
You would think that the se-
ries’ fanbase would have gradu-
ated from junior high, thrown
away all of their silk-screened
“Dragonball Z” shirts and moved
on years ago, but you would be
wrong. Instead they continue to
embrace a film series that some-
how manages to be action-
packed yet incredibly dull.
The sight of an Eastern Eu-
ropean woman in quasi-bondage
gear kicking a chainsaw wielding
zombie in the face should be
provoking a lot more reactions
than mild depression and over-
whelming drowsiness.
Hinting at the boredom that
lies waiting just ahead, “Resident
Evil: Retribution” opens with an
overlong sequence in which
series protagonist Alice (Milla
Jovovich) talks directly to the
camera and slowly walks us
through the tortured mythology
of the last four “Resident Evil”
movies.
This is so long-winded and
excruciating you get the feeling
that it would have taken far less
time to just run the last four
“Resident Evil” movies back to
back instead.
From there we learn that the
sinister Umbrella Corporation is
keeping her prisoner within a
massive underwater facility
where zombie outbreaks were
staged within model cities that
resemble Tokyo, Moscow, and a
generic suburban neighborhood.
As Alice attempts to escape,
she’s pursued by Jill Valentine
(Sienna Guillory), a one time ally
who’s now transformed into a
ruthless assassin – (sigh) you
know what? Who cares? Besides,
does anyone watch these movies
for their surprisingly complicated
plots?
Here’s what “Resident Evil:
Retribution” is really about: a
group of people who mumble out
exposition in an unwavering
monotone and occasionally per-
form backflips in slow motion.
Now repeat this for the next 90
or so minutes and you have
something that vaguely resem-
bles a movie.
It takes a special kind of hack
to botch a “can’t miss” premise
and Paul W.S. Anderson is that
hack. Throughout his long direct-
ing career, Anderson has careful-
ly drained the fun out of potential
trash classics like “Alien vs.
Predator” and forever damned
them to an eternity spent in the
DVD bargain bin at Wal-Mart.
“Resident Evil: Retribution”
could’ve been pure electrifying
garbage but, much like the rest of
his films, it’s a humorless slog.
You would think a guy who
primarily specializes in the action
genre would realize that when
you make these kinds of films
you have to raise the stakes or
gradually heighten the action in
some way. But in this movie all
of the action sequences share a
bland uniformity and every inter-
minable fight scene is indis-
tinguishable from the last.
Occasionally, Anderson will
stumble upon an interesting idea
(some of the characters have
good and bad clones) or a strik-
ing image (such as Michelle
Rodriguez oozing bullets out of
her index finger) but he immedi-
ately glosses over it in favor of
more footage of spent bullet
casings slowly traveling through
the air.
Talentless and unimaginative,
Anderson seems to live in a
world were 1999 never ended and
“The Matrix” is still very rele-
vant.
Granted, being that “Resident
Evil: Retribution” is the second
to last entry in a mediocre fran-
chise, nobody was expecting all
that much. But then nobody was
expecting it to be this bad either.
About the only positive thing
that could be said about “Resi-
dent Evil: Retribution” is that
Jovovich looks good in bangs.
And that’s not easy to do. W
Alice (Milla Jovovich) is up to her old zombie-killing tricks. Her same, tired old zombie-killing tricks.

“I can probably make it about
eight minutes,” the 23-year-old
director from Carbondale said
with a laugh.
That never-ending drive to
make movies is just one part of
the formula that helped Dunning
pin down the Best Director award
at the 2012 San Antonio Horrific
Film Festival earlier this month
for his second feature-length
movie, “Laughter.”
The film was also nominated
for Best Feature and Best Make-
up for the special effects work
done by Dunning, Jessica Lind-
gren, Danielle M. Quinn, and
Carolyn Seibert.
The plot of “Laughter” follows
Joey (Rocky Petroziello), a
young man ridiculed at school
and home for his obsession with
clowns. At a going away party
following their high school grad-
uation, several of Joey’s class-
mates stage a prank that turns
fatal.
The friends swear themselves
to an oath of secrecy about the
events of that night, but they’re
gruesomely picked off by a mys-
terious man dressed as a clown.
“Laughter” follows Dunning’s
film career that began with the
local premiere of “the inFected”
in Feb. 2011. Writing for the most
recent movie occurred between
April and Oct. 2011, and a cast-
ing call was held in Moosic in
Jan. 2012. Filming began in
March and wrapped in June,
Dunning said.
Assembling a cast allowed
Dunning to control all of the
action from behind the camera.
With 14 main cast members and
about 40 extras, he never had to
fill in as an actor like he had in
“the inFected.”
The accolades he received in
Texas weren’t limited to the Best
Director win. Several horror fans
in attendance told him he could
do “dangerous work” with some
new production equipment.
For now, however, he’s focused
on bucking the Hollywood trend
of recycling old characters with
reboots.
“I don’t have to have a
$150,000 budget or a $200 mil-
lion budget to make a movie and
worry about whether people are
going to like it or hate it. I just
made a movie for $3,000 com-
pared to what they can do
$200,000,” he said.
“If you have a good story and a
good cast, it doesn’t matter what
kind of equipment you really
use.”
“Laughter” will premiere lo-
cally at Marquee Cinemas (301
Lackawanna Ave., Scranton) on
Sunday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. Tickets
are $5, and Dunning recom-
mends purchasing one of the 500
available seats in advance by
reaching him at (570) 903-7427
or dunnlacka@yahoo.com. Addi-
tional showings may be added if
the film is popular, he said.
In addition, DVDs of “Laugh-
ter” and a companion CD with
music from both of his films will
be available at the premiere for
$15.

ralphie report
the
By Ralphie Aversa
Special to the Weekender
It has been six years since rap-
per DMXreleased a studio album
prior to dropping “Undisputed”
last Tuesday. While the “Ruff
Ryder” has not lost his bark, it
definitely seems as if he is more
deliberate with his bite.
“Music always evolves and
morphs into different things,” X
said in explaining his stance on the
current state of hip-hop. The rap-
per called in to “The Ralphie
Radio Show” last week. “At the
same time, man you got young
minorities who are successful. Not
only that person, but I’m sure he
has a crew with him… that’s at
least 10 people with a job, doing
something positive. Whether I
approve it or not, I’m glad that
they’re successful in what they’re
doing.”
The emcee, born Earl Simmons,
is not just talking a big game. His
new disposition has kept him out
of trouble with the law for over a
year, and afforded him the time to
write and record his latest LP.
“I’m just focused on my music
again,” he said. “To have it taken
from me, I learned to appreciate it
as much as I do now. When I went
in for this album, I felt like I did
when I recorded my first album. I
was hungry for it. I wanted it. I
needed it.”
Certainly fans that discovered
DMX with 1998’s “It’s Dark and
Hell Is Hot” are happy to hear him
rapping instead of reading about
him on TMZ. But now in 2012,
there are a whole new generation
of hip-hop fans that may know X
more for those headlines. The
rapper notes that he was not influ-
enced by a potential new audience
when recording this album.
“The beauty in the truth is that
it’s timeless,” X said. “It will reach
every generation, as long as you
keep it the truth.”
DMX believes his new music
can do just that. The rapper re-
leased the album on Sept. 11, and
will donate his proceeds from first
week sales to 9/11 victims and
families. X also briefly comment-
ed on his still-in-progress gospel
music album. The New Yorker
said the LP is “definitely coming”
and is “pretty much done.”
ERIKAVANPELT PLANS
LIFE POST-IDOL
“American Idol” season eleven
finalist Erika Van Pelt did not
forget her roots, and she’ll be
returning to them soon.
“I’m letting my lease run out in
Massachusetts and I’m actually
moving back to Warwick (R.I.),”
Van Pelt revealed on “The Ralphie
Radio Show.” “I can’t really say
exactly what it is yet, but I’m
going to be doing some work with
Alex and Ani.”
The Ocean State-based jewelry
company will be enlisting the help
of the “Idol” singer for new jingles
and other commercial-related
services. Other than that, Van Pelt
will be working on a new album,
independently.
“I don’t have a label or a man-
agement contract as of right now,”
she said. “But I do want to make a
record, and I know if I have to
fund it independently, I totally
will. I’ll do more DJ gigs; whatev-
er I have to do to make that hap-
pen.”
- Listen to “The Ralphie Radio
Show” weeknights from
7p.m.-midnight on 97 BHT.

An effort to give back to his
hometown led Kevin Davis
down an unusual path that
ended on a movie set.
Davis, a Wilkes-Barre na-
tive and current Taylor resi-
dent, recently completed
shooting on “Man in a Box,”
a film he wrote, produced,
directed, and starred in.
The film is a way for Davis
to give back to the city he
once lived in. He explained
that he served time in a cor-
rectional facility in 1990 for
selling drugs.
“Instead of becoming an
asset to Luzerne County, I
became a liability,” he said.
“That’s never left me. I’ve
always regretted that, and I’ve
always wanted to redeem my-
self.”
Part of that goal was
achieved in 2005 when he
became a nurse, he said, but it
continues with the completion
of “Man in a Box.”
The film came to him in an
unusual way. While he was
unemployed earlier this year,
he began thinking about ways
to stay creative. With some
encouragement from Luzerne
County Community College
instructor Sally Healey, he
was on his way to developing
the script for the film.
“Man in a Box” addresses
the series of difficult conse-
quences that the main charac-
ter, Lloyd, faces including his
actions to kill his abusive
parents that results in his
sister’s accidental death. He
aims to kill himself after the
episode, but he has run out of
bullets.
“He’s haunted by that,
which is where the box comes
into play,” Davis explained.
Lloyd is treated in a mental
institution for 20 years and
emerges in a very different
world. An unfortunate set of
circumstances sets him on a
crossroads with members of
the mob.
Driven by his heavily Ca-
tholic faith, Davis said Lloyd
becomes somewhat of a “reli-
gious vigilante” in the search
for justice.
“I would have never thought
in a million years that I could
write a feature film,” Davis
confessed. “Writing was
something that I didn’t think
was a strength of mine, and I
still don’t, but it was a lot of
fun. It got a life of its own
once I started writing it.”
Some critical networking
led Davis to work with Tom
Peeler, who “really polished
the script a great deal.”
The film attracted actors
from as far as Texas and sup-
port from a wide variety of
local businesses who provided
catering services and loca-
tions to shoot. “Man in a
Box” was filmed in Pittston,
Kingston, Wilkes-Barre, Ply-
mouth, and Taylor, according
to Davis, and shooting wrap-
ped this weekend.
“It’s been a joyride for me,
and the support is just hum-
bling,” he said. “For me to go
from beginning to end to
where we are now in the time
that I was able to do it, I just
can’t believe it,” he said.
DynaCore Films, Davis’
production company, is plan-
ning a crowd-funding cam-
paign on www.kickstarter.com
to raise funds for post produc-
tion. Davis hopes to premiere
the film locally and submit it
to film festivals once it is
completed. W

novel approach
theater listings
Home has always been a place
portrayed as our connection to
consolation. However, in Grego-
ry Hill’s debut novel, “East of
Denver,” home proves to be
anything but that charming sign
plastered in spaces across Amer-
ica.
Enter protagonist Stacey
“Shakespeare” Williams. Shak-
espeare is a 30-something city
slicker who left home for a place
without any connection to the
world he once knew. For him,
home is nothing short of a
plague — a place of dust and
memories that can blow away in
the blink of an eye.
The story begins with the
death of Shakespeare’s cat. Find-
ing it unfit to bury his beloved
pet in his backyard, he leaves for
his hometown of Dorsey, a ghost
town east of Denver, to lay his
cat to rest.
Readers soon learn that in
Shakespeare’s absence, his aged
father, Emmett, has sunk into
senility, transforming from a
man adored for his sharp wit to
one severely diminished at the
onset of Alzheimer’s.
When Shakespeare returns to
his childhood home, he finds
that his father, Emmett, is on the
brink of failure. While it be-
comes Shakespeare’s duty to
save his family’s dwindling es-
tate, the struggle becomes less
about finances and more about
the bond between father and son.
Shakespeare realizes that a
corrupt banker manipulated
Emmett’s senility into submis-
sion for his own wealth. But, all
is not lost. Shakespeare begins to
resolve the seemingly ceaseless
issues that have piled up since
his departure.
Characters Vaughn Atkins,
D.J. Beckman, and Clarissa
McPhail are all pieces of Shak-
espeare’s past that he also chose
to leave behind. These characters
live their lives reminiscing about
the past — one of hopes and
dreams that have since fallen to
the wayside.
In some instances they seem
stereotypical. Much of that is
due to the way Shakespeare
depicts them. As Shakespeare
begins to immerse himself back
into Dorsey, he finds that his
friends are much more compli-
cated and supportive than they
appear.
Shakespeare comes across
undefined in many aspects. He is
lifeless and missing something
integral — a connection to the
people he has left behind. How-
ever, as the novel develops, so
too, does Shakespeare.
Each character seeks their own
resolve to improve their life, but
the force of the novel stems from
this group of mishaps coming
together to help Shakespeare
settle the score and save Emmett
from ruin.
While reading, you may ask
yourself if it seems appropriate
to laugh. The answer is obvious.
“East of Denver” is pains-
takingly funny — the novel
offers a deep, dark look into the
real life issues that make society
uncomfortable. When we look
back to the past and think of
home, complications and embar-
rassing memories may flash
before our eyes.
One thing will always remain
true — the people you chose to
make those memories with be-
come that home, and that is
something that stays with you
forever. W

Infinite Improbability
By Rich Howells
Weekender Staff Writer
I hate to break this to you,
ladies, but zombies don’t want
you for your brains, either.
Yes, men are pigs, but more
importantly, zombies crave hu-
man flesh, not just your cranium
candy. There seems to be a bit of
confusion on this topic, so before
you attend the Infect Scranton
zombie convention this weekend,
or that supposed “zombie apoc-
alypse” occurs that everyone
can’t seem to stop talking about,
I felt I should provide this handy
little guide to all things zombie
to help clear up any confusion
you might have about those lov-
able reanimated carcasses:
The modern zombie, and all
its basic rules, came from one
43-year-old low-budget, black
and white classic, though they
were called “ghouls” in those
days.
Director George A. Romero’s
first full-length feature, 1968’s
“Night of the Living Dead,”
would not only shape the rest of
his career, but horror films as we
know them. Originally conceived
as a comedy about aliens and
teenagers, the rough script thank-
fully took a much darker turn
when George and co-writer John
Russo rewrote it to tell an “I Am
Legend”-inspired story (the
novel, not the Will Smith movie)
about a group of random survi-
vors trapped in a farmhouse that
is surrounded by the flesh-eating
deceased who have come back to
life.
While the actors later admitted
that much it was improvised, the
movie brilliantly balanced B-
movie schlock with genuine
horror, delivering something
audiences had never seen before.
Initially, “Night” was lambast-
ed by critics for its shocking gore
and violence, but by including a
strong black man in the lead hero
role and taking chances with its
downer ending, film lovers later
recognized that there was more
beneath the surface and latched
onto its social commentary and
memorable end-of-civilization
scenario.
The idea of “ghouls” craving
human meat was established,
along with the most important
“rules” – if you get bit by one,
you become one of them, and the
only way to truly stop them is to
destroy their brain.
Zombies don’t just want to
eat your brains, and they rarely
make requests.
Speaking of brains, one thing
that is stuck in the American
subconscious is the idea that
zombies prefer the gray matter in
your skull, but let me assure you
– zombies don’t discriminate
when it comes to fresh body
parts. Zombies first called out for
“Braaaiiins!” in the 1985 horror
comedy “The Return of the Liv-
ing Dead,” though the title is
misleading – this is not a sequel
to “Night” despite Russo being
involved in the creation of the
story.
Romero continued to establish
his own thematic zombie “uni-
verse” with 1978’s “Dawn of the
Dead,” 1985’s “Day of the Dead,”
and 2005’s “Land of the Dead,”
while “Return” took a more
lighthearted and campy look at
zombies.
“Return” remains an unapol-
ogetically ’80s cult classic, but its
public legacy seems to boil down
to that one iconic line uttered by
the undead. How brainless.
Zombies walk and are pretty
dumb…at least for now.
The idea of the “zombie”
originated as someone who was
hypnotized or controlled by voo-
doo or witchcraft, but film fans
later applied this term to Rom-
ero’s monsters because of their
similar mindlessness. Consid-
ering George is the godfather of
the modern zombie, I take his
ideas as zombie bible.
If there’s one thing scarier than
a hoard of zombies overpowering
you, it’s a hoard of zombies that
could potentially learn how to
overpower you. As he establishes
throughout his original series,
zombies have the potential to
learn and evolve like any other
creature on Earth, using tools or
even simple planning to capture
its prey.
They are simply shells of us,
after all, so the possibility of
remembering their past lives
(and, consequently, skills) re-
mains a threat.
So could they, eventually, learn
to run? Not in Romero’s world,
as corpses have a tough time
maneuvering due to rigor mortis,
but the celebrated 2002 film “28
Days Later,” while influenced by
George, established a new type
of zombie that is infected with a
“Rage” virus, and, therefore, isn’t
exactly dead. These fast zombies
were continually popularized in
the 2004 “Dawn” remake and
various video games, but to me,
the classics are the ones to follow
in case of emergency.
I mean, running zombies?
Seriously? How unrealistic.
The quick guide to
zombie (fan) survival
“The Walking Dead” owes much of its mythos to
modern zombie master George Romero.

As predicted, the launch of
the iPhone 5 drove Apple fans
into a frenzy, and pumped sales
to new heights – a whopping 2
million in the first 24 hours.
Featuring high-speed 4G LTE
connectivity, these devices are
capable of consuming sub-
stantially more data than previ-
ous models. It’s only natural to
assume that users of the latest
iPhones will be putting the
connectivity of their new de-
vices through quite a workout –
video calls, YouTube uploads,
high-speed music downloads,
and the like.
Curiously, the iPhone 5’s 4G
is incompatible with European
4G networks, in contrast to
other 4G phones which can be
used internationally – and while
there was rampant speculation
that “NFC” (Near Field Com-
munications) capability would
be offered in the iPhone 5,
allowing users to pay at the
checkout counter with just a
swipe of the device, that hasn’t
happened.
Still, it’s a big leap from 3G
to 4G, and obviously people are
buying the new iPhone in
droves.
But will any of them spare a
moment of thought for the
networks? Probably not.
An interesting tidbit – it IS
possible to run out of Internet –
or, more correctly – it’s possible
for a carrier to max out the
amount of data its network can
handle at any given moment.
As more and more new 4G
devices come online, this prob-
lem will only get worse.
There are some bright spots
amid the cloudiness. 4G signals
are specifically designed to
carry data efficiently, so the
problem is not as bad as it
would otherwise be. In addi-
tion, most providers are in-
vesting large amounts of money
in infrastructure upgrades–
adding capacity to their net-
works to cope with future in-
creases.
On top of that, they’re run-
ning out of usable spectrum.
The government, the FCC in
particular, periodically auctions
off different chunks of the radio
spectrum for use by commer-
cial carriers – and the word is
that the government is planning
on making more available to
commercial carriers, from fre-
quencies previously reserved
for military use.
Even so, the radio spectrum –
the usable portions at least – is
finite, and while it’s not an
immediate issue, it’s possible
we’re just a few revolutionary
gadgets away from an Internet
traffic jam – slowdowns caused
by too many people trying to
use the network at the same
time. At the rate mobile devices
are being phased in, by the time
this happens, it won’t just be an
inconvenience – it will have
far-reaching implications for
everything from e-mail to e-
commerce.
This is, in part, why some
providers have taken “unlimit-
ed” data plans off the table.
Despite that, most carriers
are confident that, for the time
being, their networks will re-
main relatively quick and effi-
cient. Time will tell whether
that confidence is realistic or
merely born out of hubris. W

Friday’s event on the front
lawn of the Everhart Museum
(1901 Mulberry St., Scranton)
does as much to help the mu-
seum as it does to promote a
variety of healthy foods pro-
duced in northeastern Penn-
sylvania.
The second annual Farm To
Table dinner will take place at
6:30 p.m. on Sept. 21. The
inaugural event was closely
tied to the museum’s “Buds,
Blooms, and Berries” exhibit
in Sept. 2011.
“We were looking to do
something that celebrated local
agriculture; fresh, organic,
whole foods; and responsible
eating,” explained Cara Suther-
land, executive director of the
Everhart. “We specifically
targeted produce and foods
created within a 100 mile radi-
us.”
The result is a menu filled
with items picked just days
before. Sutherland said Friday’s
menu wouldn’t be finalized
until Wednesday to guarantee
the highest quality goods make
their way to the table.
The first event welcomed
about 130 people, despite
heavy rains from the remnants
of Tropical Storm Lee. Orga-
nizers are hoping for better
weather for Friday’s rain-or-
shine event.
Event co-chair Katharine
Weis, of Clarks Summit, said
that participating farms and
businesses include No Bull
Ranch in Mount Cobb, Hillside
Farms in Dallas, Catherine
Hynes from the Susquehanna
Beekeepers’ Association, Sus-
quehanna Brewing Company,
and Epicurean Delight of
Tunkhannock.
Eckel’s Farm in Clarks Sum-
mit is also donating hay bales
that will be transformed into
seating areas for the event.
“I love the whole idea of the
fellowship of it – a community
coming together to celebrate
local food and drink,” added
event co-chair Ali Duffy, who
is also providing interior deco-
ration services. “It’s a festive
occasion to get to meet your
neighbors. It’s terrific.”
The family-style dinner aids
the Everhart Museum’s original
exhibits and programming –
like next year’s planned vam-
pire- and skateboarding-
themed exhibits – while keep-
ing admission fees low.
“If you think about it, we’re
trying to replace the loss of
more than $50,000 in state
funding with the complete
elimination of funding through
the (Pennsylvania Historical &
Museum Commission),” Suth-
erland said.
In addition to the menu fil-
led with regional refreshments,
music will be provided by DJ
Steven Wallace.
Organizers have also added
an auction to this year’s event.
Offerings include the chance to
win your own Farm To Table
event catered by Be Life Café
and Marketplace of Clarks
Summit; an overnight stay at
Hotel Fauchère in Milford; and
an antique piece of furniture.
Tickets for Friday’s dinner,
which is open to adults age 21
and over, are $100 per person
and are available at www.ever-
hart-museum.org or by calling
(570) 346-7186. Sutherland
recommends “country casual”
attire, and jeans are preferred.

The F Word
By Stephanie DeBalko
Weekender Correspondent
As much as I love fashion
and clothes, there are certain
pieces of clothing for which
shopping becomes the bane
of my existence. One of them
is swimsuits, and another is
pants.
Unless I’ve had one too
many cherry vodka and Diet
Cokes, I generally shy away
from the dance floor during
Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls”
for fear of close association.
In addition to being pear-
shaped, I’m also very tall, so
shopping for pants is usually
a tiresome fiasco that ends
with me reaching for the
same old reliable straight-leg,
blue denim or the occasional
bell-bottom jean.
This fall, I vow it will be
different. For one thing, I’ve
finally realized that the num-
ber on the size label, no mat-
ter how high, is irrelevant.
What matters is the fit and
wearing the correct size,
whether it’s 2 or 22. And this
season’s trends in bottoms are
making me more excited than
ever to start embracing new
horizons.
Allow me to elaborate.
COLORED OR
COATED DENIM
Summer’s candy-colored
trend is dipping into fall in a
big way. Put a fresh fall spin
on it with the wax-like finish
of coated denim. Paired with
a feminine top, the edginess
becomes balanced and re-
fined.
PRINTED DENIM
From American Eagle Out-
fitters to Marc by Marc Ja-
cobs and from leopard to
brocade, you can’t throw a
rock without hitting a pair of
printed jeans. I just stumbled
upon a snakeskin-printed pair
from Sofia Vergara’s line for
Kmart, Sofia, that were rea-
sonably priced — a great
option if you’re looking to
get your feet wet with the
style.
LEATHER PANTS
AND LEGGINGS
Like their cousin coated
denim, leather pants or leg-
gings are an easy way to
incorporate a little bit of
hardness into your fall war-
drobe. Real leather pants can
cost upwards of $500, but
vegan leather is much more
affordable — and seems more
comfortable, as most of us
remember Ross Geller’s hor-
rible experience with them in
“Friends,” circa 1999. W

glorious trip to Kmart, visit

This pair of midrise skinnies in Black Brocade by J
Brand, available at Revolve Clothing, is a safe way to
try printed denim. Pair with a billowy oxblood-colored
button-down blouse to kill two fall trends with one
stone.
A long, lacy top would be
the sugar to these vegan
leather leggings’ spice.

A fascination with the “red-
neck” way of life is certainly
strong in our country, and it isn’t
just “Honey Boo Boo” that has
everyone watching.
“The Great American Trailer
Park Musical” is coming back to
our area this weekend and after
the success of its first run, the
Music Box Dinner Playhouse
(196 Hughes St., Swoyersville)
expects a full house.
Having been compared to
“Desperate Housewives” and
“The Best Little Whorehouse in
Texas,” this trailer park-inspired
musical comedy is full of bawdy
fun that director Dana Feigenblatt
is sure audiences will love and
laugh at.
“It’s one of those shows that
you can just sit back and enjoy,”
explained Feigenblatt. “I think
everyone will fall in love with the
story we are telling and the won-
derful music. We promise to
make you laugh until your sides
hurt!”
“The Great American Trailer
Park Musical” debuted at the
Music Box Dinner Playhouse in
April 2010 and was adored not
only by the cast and crew but the
audience as well.
“It played to sold-out houses.
This show was such a hit with
audiences the first time we did it
that we couldn’t wait to bring it
back,” Feigenblatt said.
The story is focused on the
relationships between a few
bizarre characters living in the
Armadillo Acres mobile home
community. The R-rated tale
follows a “stripper on the run
who comes between a Sally
Jesse-loving agoraphobic house-
wife and her dim-witted hus-
band.” Throw is a murderous
ex-boyfriend, the electric chair,
and a singing Greek chorus of
trailer park divas and you’ve got
yourself one heck of a hootenan-
ny.
“It has all major components
of a great show,” noted Feigen-
blatt. “Fun music, a well-written
script, comedic moments and
even touching moments…each of
the seven characters has their
own quirk and story, and once
you put all of these together, you
can’t help but laugh and have a
great time.”
Feigenblatt isn’t just working
behind the scenes on the show
either; she’s pulling double duty
as an actress as well.
“It was definitely a challenge
but I have a great cast who has
been working really hard, so they
have helped to make my job a lot
easier. We have had a great time
in rehearsals.”
Musical numbers throughout
the show will cover a variety of
genres from country and blues to
rock and disco. The play has
many aspects that Feignblatt is a
huge fan of, but her favorite part
isn’t revealed until the end.
“There is an unexpected twist
in the story that many people do
not see coming. It is also one of
the funniest scenes in the show
followed by an amazing song to
summarize what all these charac-
ters have come to realize at this
point in their lives,” she said.
The Playhouse also created a
special offer just for Weekender
readers to “redneck-ognize.”
“We are currently running a
special discount if people men-
tion they saw this story - $35 for
dinner/ show and $16 for show-
only tickets.” W

AGENDA, FROM PAGE 55
sorry mom&dad
By Justin Brown
Weekender Correspondent
There are very few people that
I’ve ever admired.
Willow Smith. Kenny Powers.
Lamb Chop.
Instead of looking up to others
and following in their footsteps, I
march to the beat of my own
drum. For instance, what’s the
point of being on a reality show
that people actually watch when
you could be on ABC’s “I Sur-
vived A Japanese Game Show”
which nobody remembers ever
being on the air?
Why would I be on the real
“Dancing With The Stars” when
I could be in a local version held
in Scranton, competing against
the vice principal in town?
Why graduate college in less
than a decade when I could be
living in my parents’ basement
looking for a job that is not avail-
able for me?
Even someone as independent
as me finds someone they aspire
to be like. Most recently, that
person is Jimmy Fallon. I was
never particularly a fan of his
time on “Saturday Night Live,”
but when I saw him play beer
pong with Betty White, he be-
came my new favorite person in
the world.
Sorry, Mom and Dad. Anyone
who plays beer pong with Betty
White is my “American Idol,” my
hero, my homeboy.
Sorry, Jesus.
Following his game with
White, the newest addition to my
Bucket List was to play beer
pong with the king of late night
television.
I may not have a hairless back,
or two eyebrows without the help
of hot wax, but if there is one
thing I do have it’s tenacity. So, I
started requesting interviews
with him, challenging him to a
game of beer pong over an in-
terview. They were all denied.
Last year, when I had my own
entertainment segment on the
NBC affiliate station, I was cer-
tain my requests would be ac-
cepted! Instead - denied, denied,
denied.
After nearly two years of at-
tempts, I decided to stop before
NBC’s publicist filed a restrain-
ing order.
When I was visiting New York
City last week, someone ap-
proached me and asked if I
would like the last ticket to watch
Fallon rehearse his monologue
for that evening’s show. It was
like it was meant to be.
Watching Fallon in action
reminded me why I wanted to
play beer pong with him in the
first place: Because he’s the
f---ing man!
So, Fallon, I’m on the prowl,
publicly challenging you to a
game of beer pong, only to re-
mind all the boys and girls out
there to never give up on some-
thing they started - until someone
issues a restraining order on you.
W
Justin has thrown down the beer pong challenge
gauntlet. Will Fallon accept?
Game on,
Jimmy Fallon! W

By Robbie Vanderveken
Special to the Weekender
Tag, you’re in!
The most recent installment in
the Tekken franchise, “Tekken
Tag Tournament 2” (PS3, Xbox
360, Wii U), is a long time com-
ing. The last “Tekken Tag Tour-
nament” game came out in 2000.
I have spent a lot of time with
the “Tekken” series and, because
of my love of fighting games, a
new entry is a big deal for me.
Fighting games all have a
learning curve of button combi-
nations, but “Tekken” has always
had more to learn because of the
deep combo system and a huge
roster of characters to master.
Having thousands of combos to
memorize, strategies to learn,
and teams to experiment with is a
big draw for me, but it is a turn-
off for most people.
If you are new to the series,
there is a mode called the “Fight
Lab” where you can learn the
basics of fighting, different tech-
niques for each fighter, and a
variety of different training exer-
cises.
Each level of the Fight Lab is
designed to teach the player how
to do some advanced fighting
moves like Binds or Tag As-
saults. These levels can be quite
silly because you do things like
toss pizzas and battle what ap-
pears to be a fat version of Ryu
from “Street Fighter.”
Vets of the “Tekken” series
love the complexity, and “Tekken
Tag Tournament 2” doesn’t dis-
appoint. It’s got all the solid
fighting mechanics that you
know and love, like air juggles,
huge combos, precision blocking,
throw breaks, and dodges.
The biggest change to the
“Tekken” series is the advent of
the Tag Assault system. If you
get your timing right, then you
can use your teammate to keep
combos going and even juggle
your foe in the air.
The varying modes are each
well-polished. Arcade mode is a
string of eight fights with an
ending boss battle, and Ghost
Battle is essentially a never-
ending version of the classic
construct.
Of course it has versus mode,
but it also has “Pair Play” which
lets four people play on two
teams of two each. Team Battle is
a more traditional, tournament-
style method with up to 16 play-
ers on two teams battling towards
the top.
“Tekken Tag Tournament 2”
also has online modes, but there
is nothing really earth shattering
there. One great touch, however,
is that you get placed in a train-
ing zone where you can practice
fight while you’re waiting for
your online game to load.
The online system was also
very stable. I played several
matches and didn’t experience
too much slowdown or connec-
tion failures.
“Tekken Tag Tournament 2”
isn’t revolutionary, but it provides
classic “Tekken” game play, an
expanded roster of new and re-
turning characters, and a few
adequate online modes.
If you are a “Tekken” fan then
you will be getting a great new
addition, and if not, you will be
getting a very polished fighting
game to learn - if you are willing
to invest the time. W

The roster is as deep as ever in the new ’Tekken Tag Tournament 2.’
New 'Tekken' delivers
classic combo
’Tekken Tag Tournament
2’ is available now on PS3
and Xbox 360 with a title
due for the Wii U. W

A few weeks ago I took a
road trip with a friend to
New York. If you have ever
driven to upstate New York
this time of year, you know
that it’s absolutely beautiful.
The route we took was most-
ly back roads, so we were
surrounded by the great out-
doors.
Everything was going great
and we were having an
amazing time until my friend
decided to carelessly toss his
cigarette butt right out of the
window. I was shocked. Lit-
tering of any kind is abso-
lutely not allowed in my
presence, or at all for that
matter!
So I yelled at my friend, a
lot. I explained to him how
damaging littering is to the
environment, no matter how
small the garbage is. After
our long discussion I calmed
down and we returned to
having a good time, until a
passing car did the same
exact thing he did.
I know people litter, but I
never realized how second
nature it was for so many
people to just throw their
cigarette butts out onto the
open road so carelessly!
For countless American
smokers, cigarette butts are
an exception to the “no lit-
tering rule.” According to
Keep America Beautiful,
cigarette butts are the most
commonly littered item in
the United States and around
the world today. A lot of
folks claim that cigarettes
are a “natural type of waste,”
but this is simply not true.
Cigarette butts are not
biodegradable. They contain
plastic filters that enter
storm drains and sewers and
get swept into rivers that
carry them out to sea where
they release toxic chemicals
including nicotine, benzene,
and cadmium that are ex-
tremely harmful.
All types of litter have
detrimental affects on birds
as well. Cigarettes are a tox-
ic type of litter that can
poison birds if ingested. A
small amount may not be
life threatening immediately.
However, cigarettes ingested
by birds can cause serious
illness and deformities over
time.
There’s also the threat of
causing a damaging fire.
Killing off wildlife and vege-
tation in a vast area due to a
fire can take years to recov-
er. To be exact, 90,000 fires
a year are caused by ciga-
rettes, according to the Na-
tional Fire Protection Agen-
cy.
Now that you know how
your actions can affect the
environment, I hope you’ll
think twice before littering
your next cigarette. W
Cigarettes are the single most common form of litter in
the United States, so mind your butts.

One night while I was
downtown, I met a guy
named Shaun. We chatted
while waiting for our cof-
fees and baked goods at
Starbucks and, eventually,
he asked me out. He was
very charming and I happi-
ly accepted to meet him the
next night.
I asked what time he
would be picking me up or
if I should just meet him.
He said he forgot to mention
he didn’t have a car and
asked if I could pick him up.
He gave me his address, and
I drove to get him.
We decided to go for a
lovely walk in the park and
chat. We traded stories about
our childhood. He then
asked about my job, and I
told him what I do for a
living. When I asked about
his, he said he didn’t have
one.
Then, Shaun dropped a
bomb on me.
He said he was a cancer
survivor who actually died
for five minutes a few years
ago.
What do you say to that?
He then made a joke about
it to make light of the sit-
uation and I, being the zom-
bie movie connoisseur that I
am, blurted out, “So, you
died and came back? You’re
a zombie. ‘Shaun of the
Dead!’” This did not sit well
as he quickly grew dark and
quiet.
Whoops, too far?
We went for coffee, and
while we were at the table
chatting he asked if he could
friend request me on Face-
book. I told him sure, and
within seconds my phone
went off that I had a friend
request.
I accepted and he sunk his
face into his phone - exam-
ining, scrolling, making
faces, all the while silent.
His head shot up and he
looked at me with a be-
wildered expression. I asked
what was wrong and he said
nothing, but we needed to
go. Confused, I got back
into the car and drove him
to his house.
When we had parked, he
looked at me with a very
serious expression. He point-
ed out that I had pictures of
myself with lots of other
girls. I said, “Yes, I have a
lot of friends.”
He put his hands on my
lap and looked me straight
in the eyes.
“I cannot see you again,”
he said. “It is clear you are
a lesbian.”
What?!
He then climbed out of the
car and ran into his house,
leaving me sitting in the
parking lot, flabbergasted.
It was a new first in my
life: I was dumped by a
zombie because I am a lesbi-
an. W
Dead man dating
Melissa’s own ‘Shaun of the Dead’ didn’t have as much of a sense of humor as
these two.
(AP Photo/Rogue Pictures)
He said he was a cancer survivor who actually
died for five minutes a few years ago…I, being the
zombie movie connoisseur that I am, blurted out,
“So, you died and came back? You’re a zombie.
‘Shaun of the Dead!’”

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
Lately, you’ve been craving imperfec-
tion. You’ve enjoyed your toast a little
burnt, your clothing slightly frayed, and
your apartment three degrees away from
an ideal temperature. It’s not that you’ve
finally accepted that the world isn’t per-
fect, or that you’ve become that much
more appreciative of those imperfections
(though you have). No, it’s just that you’re
inching closer to the realization I’ve been
goading you toward all along. You can’t be
the missing piece to every puzzle. The
irony is that once you accept the imperfec-
tions in yourself, you’ll fit that much more
perfectly into this most imperfect world.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
You spend your days busily zooming
from one responsibility to the next. You
respond to the needs and demands of
others like a good worker bee in a well-
ordered hive responds to the instructions
of her fellows. She dutifully—one could
even say delightedly—flies to flowers as
directed, and gathers the nectar she’s sup-
posed to collect. But when you’re conked
on the head by the plummeting coconut of
one of your own desires, you end up buzz-
ing around in confused circles for a while.
That’s been your life recently. But now
that you’ve had time to recover from the
impact of this want that has made itself so
forcefully known, what will you do about
it?
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)
What’s the point of flowers, ultimately?
Or butterflies—why are they so colorfully
beautiful? From a prosaic viewpoint, one
could dispassionately explain the evolu-
tionary advantages of such characteristics.
And speaking from the same platform,
one of scientific evaluation, one could just
as easily dispel your self-doubt by point-
ing out that you, too (with all your flaws
and virtues), are the glorious product of
millennia of evolution, with just as much
purpose and beauty as a flower or butter-
fly. I happen to believe that there are many
more levels to the "why" of a butterfly’s
glory (and yours), beyond mere evolution.
I also like to imagine that flowers and
butterflies enjoy being what they are.
Shouldn’t you?
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
Get caught making faces at yourself in
the mirror. It also could be fun to politely
reply to rudeness or insult with vicious
imprecations in a sweet-sounding foreign
language (French is good for this). Don’t
practice kicking your own ass this week,
nor implicating yourself in plots you’re
innocent of, just because they sound cool.
Your sense of fairness is as out of tune as
an abandoned piano, and missing quite a
few notes. My prescription to help you
play in key? Choose one: A. Long, deep,
soul kisses, if they’re available. B. An
intimate dinner, cooked by you, for all
your closest friends. C. A good, hard,
cleansing cry—followed by a huge help-
ing of your favorite dessert.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
Reflect on the oyster, that underrated
and overexploited little mollusk. They
have to evade and resist prying fingers and
hungry mouths eager to pluck them out of
their protective shells and slurp them
down, raw. (Blech.) If they avoid this
gruesome fate, they’ve still got to cope
with the bits and bobs that end up inside
their shells and irritate their tender flesh.
The bad news: you feel a lot like these
underrated creatures lately. The good
news: your constant worrying and fretting
about your past—every careless word,
remembered failure and missed chance—
will yield results. You ought to be able to
permanently expel a few of those irritants,
and they won’t be as ugly or anticlimactic
as gallstones or eye gunk. Nope. This
week, you’re spitting pearls.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
When I close a really good book, I often
feel emotionally shipwrecked. I’m not
usually responding to any specific events
in the novel. It’s just that finally leaving
characters and their absorbing reality is
almost like being abandoned on a deserted
island, or perhaps being returned to civi-
lization after a long, lonely stay on one.
It’s a mixture of relief and loss, similar to
how one might react to the death of some-
one who’s suffered a prolonged, painful
illness. This week you might experience a
strange blend of emotions that aren’t nec-
essarily comfortable sleeping next to each
other. Then again, you’ve had some pretty
odd bedfellows yourself.
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)
Last night I dreamt I was invited to a
New Year’s party. Shit, I thought to my-
self, autumn really flew by! Seemed like it
was still summer yesterday, and we still
had a few months to go! Luckily, several
people had pulled together a fabulous
outfit for me (it was a costume party) and
taken care of every detail of my attend-
ance. When I woke up, I thought of you—
will people still be taking care of your shit
(including the fun you have) come 2013?
I’m worried you’re not determined enough
to actually get it together. Luckily, you
have a few months to prove me wrong.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
We’re all in love with that legend-in-
your-own-time image you’ve cultivated
around yourself, that of the swashbuckling
hero, the rebellious philosopher, the truth-
seeking activist. The only problem is:
those are all relatively lonely positions.
Sure, the lonesome cowboy/girl might
have a part-time trusty sidekick, but that
doesn’t do much to foster a sense of com-
munity, does it? What can you do to
change this solitary destiny? Engage oth-
ers, of course! Easier said than done, but
this week, concentrate on how someone of
your unique talents and status might bring
people together, instead of just impressing/
intimidating them.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
You’re capable of accomplishing just as
much as your fellow Earth signs, though
your methods differ. Virgo flits constantly
from duty to duty, as quick and nervous as
a hummingbird. Capricorn executes tasks
as calmly and efficiently as a robot. You
take longer to get going. Like your animal
symbol, the bull, you know all too well the
pleasures of relaxing in the shade of a
cork tree and chewing your cud. But once
in motion, you’re nearly impossible to
stop. Since the obligations of the weeks
ahead aren’t going to complete them-
selves, you might want to start stretching
your legs and sharpening your horns: it’s
almost time for a full-on charge.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
This is a good week to start growing a
’fro that requires you to duck to pass
through doorways, or to wear padded
underwear or shoes three sizes too large.
Heck, put on one of those adorable Sumo
wrestler fat suits. Anything that helps you
to take up more space than you’re accus-
tomed to would be good. I perceive that
your achievements have been limited and
compromised—not by your ability or
efficiency, but by not giving yourself
enough room to move. This week, get
used to taking the space you need to do
what you’ve got to do.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
The world isn’t always such a comfort-
able place. Your feet ache from standing in
lines, your ass is punished by hard plastic
seats, and noise pollution violates your
thoughts. That’s why it’s so easy to under-
stand and appreciate your powerful nesting
instinct, your inordinate fondness for an
abundance of pillows, thick, terry cloth
bathrobes, hot bubble baths, good food,
mellow wine and tender romance. You’re
just trying to make a few soft places in a
sometimes hard, angular and imposing
world. This week, you’re likely to miss the
cozy nooks you’ve created for yourself—
but not that much, as you’ll be busy dis-
covering and enjoying some of the sweet
comfort zones made by other homebodies
like you.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
You’re back-to-back with your fiercest
opponent. According to good ol’ Western
tradition, you’re both supposed to walk 10
paces in opposite directions, turn and
shoot. Fastest draw wins. I know you’re
not excited that things have gotten this
extreme, but you’ve also never been great
at that cheesy movie banter that extricates
our Hollywood heroes from situations like
this. Bad humor isn’t your strong suit,
fortunately for the rest of us. It never
works in real life anyway. So how can you
defuse the situation? Try swallowing your
pride. It should go down easier than any
bullet, either literal or figurative. W
