Talk of the Town - Read my face June 19 2003

Veola Momon sits erect and alert. She cocks her head to one side and stares at me.

"Show me your hairline," she instructs. I push my bangs back and she looks to the left and the right of my forehead. "Did you know you're right-brained?"

Momon's not just making a wild guess. She's reading my face.

She's been studying the traits of eyes, nostrils and wrinkles for nearly 30 years and is a trained "genetic analyst" and member of the Personology Foundation of the Pacific. Face reading is the theory that physical attributes relate to human character and behavior. It may sound like complete bunk, but the idea has persisted in many cultures for thousands of years.

Momon has the reassuring presence of someone's grandmother, she'll be 60 years old this year, and her smile beams serenity. Although she may be retirement age, she doesn't plan on slowing down. Momon already teaches face-reading skills at community workshops and classes. She desires to pass on her knowledge and potentially create a school dedicated to face reading in Atlanta.

Look at her face. She just may do it.

"She's hot!" a co-worker remarks when he sees the press photo of Amber Taylor on my desk. Taylor's image is all moody and vamped-out. Her black, lacy top exposes her midriff. Her thinly plucked eyebrows and glossy lips are subtly sexy. Strange, I think for a moment. She looks a little like my sister.

But I know better. Amber Taylor's femmy, sexpot image is all a ruse. 'Cuz Amber's a man....

1. You know all the coy, flirting shit you learned to coax the sex of your liking into noticing you? It won't work inside the hallowed flesh halls. The point of tipping is to pay them to look at you. To keep them naked. To keep them close by. Looking bashful won't get you far.2. Find a table near the stage, but don't be too eager. There's a 100 percent guarantee there's gonna be naked people.... | more...

Be a Cracker for a day. No, not that kind of cracker. No one's slinging around epithets — this is baseball, not bad-mouthing.

The Crackers, Atlanta's original baseball team, played in Piedmont Park from 1902 to 1904. And a hundred years later, they're going to do it again.

Well, sort of. Replace the hardscrabble players of yesteryear with Hank Aaron, Dominique Wilkins and other local...

The same crowd always appears at a new nightclub. They may not be exactly the same people, but they all wear those trendy shoes, have great form-fitting black tops and expensive skirts and pants. They all seem to know one another, flashing their smiles, giving big hugs and air-kisses on cheeks.

Now that crowd has found Formosa.

Formosa doesn't have a sign out front. No neon lights. No...

Whether it's a hunka hunka burnin' love or a hunk of smoked pig, the annual Beaux-Arts Barbecue Beach Party in Clayton County plans on delivering a little of both.

The main attraction is the 'cue. With hundreds of smokers and grills fired up and the heat rising, the scene quickly becomes a barbecue-and-beer kind of crowd.

"It's either a barbecue lover's heaven or hell," says Stacey...
