As I write this letter, I am still coming to grips with the passing of my grandmother, but one memory I still hold onto fondly was when we first bonded. I moved into her home as a teenager, and one thing she loved was her television. She would stay up late every night to watch Nick at Nite and or any other reruns of sitcoms playing at that hour. We both loved “Seinfeld,” so we would watch the show together and laugh about it for weeks afterward – it was the one thing we both “got” despite our many differences. That’s the power of good entertain- ment, and this fall, there seems to be plenty of it. Each member of our staff summarized our picks for the fall season on pages 28 and 29, which range from comedies to dramas to sci-fi tales to horror stories. It’s a lot to take in, but that’s what DVRs are for. We didn’t have one of those when I watched TV with grandma, but we both enjoyed staying up late anyway, so we didn’t really need one. Find your favorite new show in our guide and then get someone special to watch it with you. TV programming comes and goes, but the right show can stick with you forever – especially with the right company. -Rich Howells, Weekender Editor

Down in Mexico…err, Scranton

SARA POKORNY

Weekender Staff Writer

rr , Scranton SARA POKORNY Weekender Staff Writer It’s no secret that The Great Party is

It’s no secret that The Great Party is an incredibly unique band – its Ameri-Pop style is one not often heard (if ever, outside of the band itself) in this area. The group, who has already released a video for the song “Theresa” off the self-titled EP, has put together quite the spectacle in produc- ing a video for another song off the EP, “Hecho En Mexico.” The Great Party, in conjunc- tion with The Vintage, is host- ing a release show for the video Sept. 28 at TwentyFiveEight Studios (703 N. Washington Ave., Rear, behind Cooper’s). There is an aura of dark humor surrounding the video, in which band mem- bers Mike Eastman, Rosaleen Eastman, Matt Mang, Michael Nordberg, and Matthew Thomas suit up in their best Day of the Dead attire. The Day of the Dead is a hol- iday that takes place on Nov. 1 and 2 of mainly Mexican heri- tage that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember those who have passed on. Fitting, given the basis of the song. “The song is about a guy who’s got a thing for a dead girl,” Rosaleen said, before laughted broke out and her husband Mike chimed in with, “Honestly, I did not even know that until right now.” The group’s playfulness and sense of humor shines through in the video. “There is some grave dig- ging,” Mike Eastman said, “but there’s also a fun twist. We’re having a traditional party on a grave site but, instead, we’re digging some- one up.” The shoot took place over two days in June, directed by Zac Stuart-Pontier, with a crew coming in from New York. A bevy of extras helped make up the party scene.

This project was supported by a Lackawanna County Arts And Culture Grant through the Lackawanna County Commissioners and Council On Arts Culture and Education. The release show will serves as a Day of the Dead party all its own. There will be free Day of the Dead face paint- ing, which earns those that hit up The Bog in Scranton afterwards an extended happy hour. Not only will The Great Party be performing but there will also be free face painting, custom crafts from Alchemy Home Company including a Sugar Skull scent created just for the occasion, food by Eden- A-Vegan Cafe, an educational piece on the Day Of The Dead holiday, and an opening set of music by A Fire With Friends. The Great Party would like to thank Stuart-Pontier, David Jacobsen, John Ferguson, The Lackawanna County Arts & Culture Department, Donna and Matty Thomas, Suzie Frisch, Beth Thomas, and the rest of the crew and all the extras for making the filming of “Hecho En Mexico” such a great experience. The party will not only be the first time local audiences are being treated to the video, but also the first time the band itself will see it in full. “We’ve seen about 90 per- cent up until this time,” Mike Eastman said, before bursting into laughter. “I mean, it can be an animated feature for all we know.”

Your guide to fantasY football Te d Black | Special to the We ekender

Gordon good to go, shy away from Holmes, and more for Week 4

Another week of football gone by - how did you fare? Hopefully, things went well and, if not, you’ve got a fresh start coming up tomorrow night. Toss ‘em, keep ‘em, make some tough decisions - hopefully this week’s guide will put you on the path to big wins in Week 4. Adds:

Josh Gordon: Many managers shied away from Gordon during their draft because of the two-game suspension looming from his off-the-field issues. He has WR1 talent on a team that has been desperately trying to stretch the field for the first few weeks of the sea- son. Brian Hoyer targeted Gordon NINETEEN times in Week 3, and you can expect that number to hold steady as the season contin- ues. It is also worth mention- ing that the Cleveland fire sale might lead to Gordon being shipped off to a con- tender in need of WR help (New England and San Francisco come to mind). Bilal Powell: Powell was slated as the number two, back behind Chris Ivory during the preseason, but Ivory’s ineffectiveness and injuries have vaulted Powell into the role of every down back for the Jets. He might not be as elusive as Ivory, but his 29 touches in Week 3 prove that the Jets’ are eager to run the ball and take the pressure of rookie QB Geno Smith. His talent is limited, but that can easily be offset by the lack of able-bodied running backs on the Jets’ depth chart. Any amount of modest success can land him the feature back duties, even once Ivory returns from his hamstring injury. Brandon Bolden: Steven Ridley has fallen out of favor in the New England backfield and Shane Vereen will be on

in the New England backfield and Shane Vereen will be on Josh Gordon the injured reserve

Josh Gordon

the injured reserve list until at least Week 11. Bolden didn’t see as many carries as Ridley or even LeGarrette Blount, but he did play on 26 of 72 snaps (more than Blount and equal to Ridley). Bolden is emerging as a pass catching threat out of the backfield and will likely be playing most passing downs. The Patriots’ offense is hurt- ing for pass catchers right now and Bolden will have no problem being a check-down option for Tom Brady. His value will clearly be elevated in any PPR leagues. Pass:

Santonio Holmes: Many fantasy team owners rushed to the waiver wire to place a claim on the Jets’ WR after his big game this past week against Buffalo. Holmes reeled in five catches for 154 yards and one touchdown.

Does this mean Santonio is back? Absolutely not. People aren’t realizing that the Buffalo secondary has been absolutely decimated by injuries. Many of the defen- sive backs playing against New York this past week have no business trying to cover NFL receivers, even if said receiver is a former star who is fading quicker with each passing day. Isaiah Pead: With the injury to Daryl Richardson, Pead had an opportunity to showcase his talent and attempt to earn at least a timeshare in the Rams’ back- field. With that opportunity Pead trudged to the line of scrimmage on numerous car- ries and rarely made defend- ers miss. It is possible that he could find value in the Rams’ hot-and-cold passing attack though. St. Louis has

been playing catch up a lot so far this season, so Pead might be able to snag a few passes from Sam Bradford,

but don’t expect to see dras- tically better numbers than what Daryl Richardson (who shouldn’t miss more than another week) has put up so far this season. Ted Ginn: Ginn had himself a field day against

a Giants’ defense that has

been struggling to find its identity early in the season. There has never been any question about Ginn’s speed. He’s been torching defensive backs since his years at Ohio State. Ginn’s problems begin with his hands and end with his inability to run routes

effectively. It’s awe-inspiring

to see someone so fast have

the inability to create sepa- ration from defensive backs on the professional level.

Collabs fuel celebration of Hagar’s longtime career

albums like these are a hit-or-miss proposition; the cover-heavy, famous

friend tagalong collaborations. such attempts have yielded monstrous victories, like Johnny Cash’s “american” series, or abysmal misfires like the recent metallica/ Lou reed “Lulu” trainwreck. Vocal goliath sammy Hagar tries his hand at this concept with “sammy Hagar

& Friends,” an album that brings

along for the ride bandmates like Hagar’s Chickenfoot pals drummer Chad smith and michael anthony (Hagar’s co-Van Halen holdover), along with notable buddies like Kid rock and Journey’s neal schon. the result is pleasing – no patchwork

quilt of assembled one-offs here; it’s

a classic sammy Hagar buckshot

through and through. perhaps most noticeable is the continued staying power of Hagar’s bombastic, upper-register vocals.

at the age of 65, Hagar continues to defy Father time with his soul-

phrased, agitated vocal candor. this

is evident on tracks like “not going

down,” a bluesy, idle-drive rocker featuring bassist bill Church and drummer denny Carmassi of Hagar’s

seminal early 1970’s hard rock act, montrose. Covers like depeche mode’s “personal Jesus” are given

a playful roadhouse treatment, the

cut sounding like a lost chicken- grea se d out ta ke from ZZ to p’s “tre s Hombres” album, schon’s strings sizzling a bubbling blues. “Knockdown dragout” is probably the most typical Hagar hard-partying, tequila-torrent rock ‘n roll scrape. Hagar and Kid rock trade lead

vocals amid a rhythmic blowout reminiscent of Hagar’s 1997 radio hit, “Little White Lie.” the only real clinker of the bunch may be a cover of Jimmy buffett’s “margaritaville,”

with to by Ke ith on shared le ad vocal – the track’s lackluster waft a bit too karaoke to properly conform

to Hagar’s dynamic personality. a lower-key cut that does work is “all We need Is an Island,” co-written by Heart’s nancy Wilson, with a world- music flair by way of grateful dead drummer mickey Hart’s percussion and ta hitian Uk ulele sea so ned sa lt .

a lighthearted, yet musically potent powerhouse celebration of Hagar’s 40 years in music, this collaboration smacks every inch of Hagar’s fun-in- the-sun, untroubled charisma, and proves the red rocker hasn’t lost a single shade of his musical color.

by McCauley. Like many albums of 2013, horn sections have snuck into several songs. A blast of brass opens “Trash,” courtesy of Austin collective Grupo Fantasma. Deer Tick’s love song to the open road then mellows into a twangy melody, cresting with a chorus of crash- ing drums and flirtatious horns. “Where’s all the romance that I used to know/I wanna fall in love again with the open road,” McCauley croons, gravelly and swaying with playful nos- talgia, “Checking out past noon, bill me if you want/It’s my disposition as a wasteful savant.” “Thyme” is an enchantingly sinister rock waltz that’ll appeal to fans of And the Moneynotes and Dr. Dog. The presence of ‘70s style ballads peppered throughout “Negativity” echo those in other recent albums, like Band of Horses’ “Mirage Rock.” Vaness a Carlton joins McCauley on the un- romantic realities of relationships on country duet “In Our Time.” “Mirror Wa lls” st ands out with a steady beat, keys that brighten and descend, and a guitar solo wailing for a few bars of speedy sorrow. “Pot of Gold” thrashes with the well- worn energy of early Deer Tick, layering vocals

What Jackson brings to the table is outstanding song- writing — an area where contemporary bluegrass can be lacking.

Jackson tips his hat to blue- grass history by covering Bill Monroe’s “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” and the Dillards’ great “There Is A Time,” and he runs John Anderson’s “Wild And Blue” through a mountain gap without losing its soulful strength.

Kacy Muir | Weekender Correspondent

Somebody to love

One of the most important gifts of life is love. Many of us spend our lives falling in and out of love with the world. We learn about ourselves, for better or for worse. After all that soul searching, we look for somebody to love, hoping that one day we will we eventually find that someone. Enter protagonist, Marie Commeford, of Alice McDermott’s latest novel, “Someone”. Marie takes readers on a non-linear jour- ney through life, love and loss. McDermott, who was pre- viously awarded the National Book Prize for her novel “Charming Billy,” has gone on to win various awards in addition to being thrice nom- inated for the Pulitzer Prize. As a result, the continued maturity, poise and brilliance that McDermott has created with “Someone” may prove to be her most pivotal work yet. Readers are introduced to Marie at a young age. We soon find that she is suffer- ing from severe myopia, an eye disorder that eventually destroys her ability to see clearly. However, the condi- tion never once denies her the ability to see the wonder and beauty around her:

“Slipping out of that first darkness, into the dusty, city light of these rooms, I met the blurred faces of the parents I’d been given — given through no merit of my own — faces that even to my defective eyes, ill-formed, you might say, in the hours of that first darkness, were astonished by love.” Marie’s family gathers much of the readers’ emotion within the novel, particu- larly her brother Gabe, who, while religious, decides to

leave the priesthood. While the reasons are unknown, McDermott allows readers to come to their own con- clusions. Nevertheless, even in Gabe’s ambiguity, readers grow to admire and care for him as a man who is both genuine and noble. Narrating the book as a senior, Marie bridges one of her first memories — wait- ing for her father on the steps of their Brooklyn home to everything in between — to love, marriage, motherhood, faith and death. Even consid- ering McDermott does not heed to chronological order, there remains a great balance

to the work. The descrip- tions are vivid and mesmer- izing, transporting readers to each given scene with preci- sion. The pages move like a perfected pirouette, whirling with ease and grace. The novel showcases that there is more than one per- son with the ability to love us; they are those who can take us in without judgment, even knowing our darkest secrets and deepest flaws. In the end, Marie’s life becomes a culmination of events recap- tured not through her dimin- ishing sight, but through a clear lens of wisdom. W
