Oh Kennedy Center...

In recent years, the Honors were dogged by controversy amid charges that they consistently overlooked Latin artists. The selection process was revised, and soprano Martina Arroyo and rock guitarist Carlos Santana were among the 2013 recipients. No Hispanics were named this year.

Felix R. Sanchez, chairman of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, was in the middle of the campaign for changes after a heated 2012 phone call with Michael Kaiser, then the Kennedy Center president. (Kaiser stepped down at the end of last month. President Deborah F. Rutter is in her first week on the job.) On Thursday morning, Sanchez reacted negatively to this year’s slate.

“I think that it’s incomprehensible that after the discussions we had in 2012 and the changes that were supposed to be in place in 2013 that we have the same result in 2014,” Sanchez said. “It shatters the trust in the promises that were made and in the structural changes that were supposed to prevent this kind of outcome.”

Asked if Latino artists should expect to be named every year, Sanchez said, “There is a three­decade backlog of not acknowledging Latino artists.” He said he will press for a meeting with the center’s Latino advisory committee “posthaste.”

In a statement, Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein said, “We were proud to Honor two Latinos last year and expect to honor more in the years to come.”

Awesome. There's hope in 11 years. see below

combined sewer overflow, or CSO

New stormwater outfalls will be created on both the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers. We will begin work on the Anacostia River first, because it is a slower-moving river, and pollution stays longer and does more damage in rivers with a slow current.

By the year 2025, we expect to reduce CSOs in the Potomac and Anacostia rivers and Rock Creek by 96% overall. CSOs in the Anacostia will be reduced by 98%.

“Dear PoPville,
Head’s up about a potentially dangerous runner in Dupont - Today (9/21) I was walking around 17 and S St. NW at 11 AM when I was assaulted by a jogger. A woman running quickly towards looked me in the face, said “head’s up”, then purposely body slammed me in the shoulder with a lot of force. I yelled loudly but she continued and was gone before we figured out what just happened. It was clearly intentional and she really hurt my shoulder. She was about 5’4″, Caucasian, athletic, mid-30s, with mid length brown hair. The whole experience was bizarre, but clearly an unprovoked assault on a stranger that she will probably repeat.”

He still loves Rasika. Sietsema's latest guide. Inn at Little Washington at 5.

But I also want to know where I can find a guide to Eden Center places, it's not from Sietsema, and Tyler Cowen who does cover such places is not always up to date.

curmudgeon, Thursday, 9 October 2014 17:14 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

it's kind of a disservice to Rasika for Tom to keep giving them four stars, it just means people will walk in there with the expectation it's a four star restaurant when in reality it's very good but far more casual and less ambitious than the other four star places in town.

I guess I need to splurge sometime on some of these places, but I can't convince my cheapskate self to go down to the Inn at Little Washington and spenda those big bucks no matter how great that description reads.

$9 The average price of a sandwich at DCity Smokehouse, the cheapest eatery on this year's list.

4 restaurants -- Rose's Luxury, Little Serow, DCity Smokehouse and Thai Square -- do not take reservations.

anyone familiar with Jody Mack and her experimental film/performance artist homage to old college dorm posters like Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon

Sunday, Nov. 2
Let Your Light Shine at National Gallery of Art (

Initially, she planned to shoot some sort of documentary, but the musical stop-motion show she wound up creating is harder to classify. Titled “Dusty Stacks of Mom: The Poster Project” — and featuring Ms. Mack’s mother, Sharon Marney — it’s a kinetic, handmade cornucopia of movie and music stars’ imagery and shots of the poster-filled warehouse. The infectiously obsessive 40-odd minutes are timed to the Pink Floyd album “The Dark Side of the Moon.”

At screenings, Ms. Mack supplies live vocals, accompanied by a soundtrack composed by nine people. Singing over instrumental renditions of the classic album, she enunciates wittily precise lyrics in playful harmonies: “Sometimes there isn’t much to do/about depreciating revenue.”

The experimental filmmaker Jodie Mack grew up around the family business of posters and merch. From a Florida warehouse her parents supplied music retailers and others with the cultural wallpaper that decorated countless bedrooms in the 1990s — from the bands and celebrities du jour to the dorm-room patron saints Belushi, Marley and Guevara.

With the rise of the Internet came a downturn in sales, leaving thousands of Leonardo DiCaprios and Winona Ryders to languish in the cubbyholes of the warehouse. Ms. Mack’s mother, who by then ran the company on her own, talked about closing up shop. But the bust in sales was a bonanza for Ms. Mack, an animator for whom paper materials are both a favored medium and a ripe subject for cultural history.

“There were so many things in there that were available in multiples, so I thought it would be very interesting to go down and shoot and make animations of all of it,” Ms. Mack, 31, recalled by phone while on a trip to Ukraine. “The stuff that I had to work with was the stuff that was left behind, the stuff that didn’t sell out.”
