  string(1573) "Singer/songwriter Caroline Aiken began serving as entertainment coordinator of Atlanta's annual Dogwood Festival in 1993. Since then, she says, "It's gone from kind of a craft show to a full-blown, critically acclaimed event that everyone wants to get into."

When scheduling acts to perform for such a varied crowd, Aiken tries to build on each band's particular energy "so there's an incredible climax of music at the end of the night." But the family-friendly festival does have its limits: "Everybody's got their kids along, so I need the acts to keep their clothes on and take the shock value out a just a bit."

This year, Aiken will have her own daughter, musician Page Dukes, along with her at the festival. "She's 15 and has traveled with me for 14 years," Aiken says.

However, as Aiken performs with Diane Durett and Donna Hopkins in her side  project, Women of Rock in the Round, her offspring will be competing for attention in another part of Piedmont Park. As "Page Spooks", the young guitarist and her Anti-Graves Misfits Cover Band will play the Z93 area at noon Sunday, the same time her mom is on the Fox 97 stage. "I may not  even play with Donna and Diane," laughs Aiken. "I think I'll just go over and watch Page's band."

Then there's Saturday night's headliner, Shawn Mullins. "He opened for me at Eddie's Attic when he was just a kid," Aiken says. "I asked him how long he was gonna play, and he said, 'Well, I only know three songs.' He certainly knows a few more now."

The Dogwood Festival is held April 12-14 in Piedmont Park.??

  string(4988) "Fuck festivals. It's spring so they'll be everywhere soon. I'm soured on them myself ever since my failed foray as a festival whore a few years back. Chalk it up to being lost a little, career wise.

I had a booth where I sold photography and begged friends to bring me beer because I felt trapped, fearing to leave lest some Dunwoody housewife let loose her inner klepto and pilfer one of my framed photographs. I'd end up practically giving them away by the festival's end anyway. "Take it! Christ!" I'd grumble,  funnel-cake flakes in my matted hair.

To this day my friends marvel at the bad luck I had weather-wise at every spring festival I entered, which totaled a whopping two before I packed up my entire frost-bitten ass and vowed never to return. Grant didn't even last that long. I'd talked him and Lary into reserving a booth next to me at the Inman Park Festival in '97, where Grant sold his Sister Louisa pieces espousing renegade evangelical musings (my favorite: "Nothing Harder Than a Preacher's Dick"), along with a rack of old aprons. Lary sold gilded shrines.

Of all the spring festivals, the Inman Park Festival remains my favorite — I mean, if you chisel off the hardened crust I've carefully  cultivated to shield myself from their lure. The Inman Park Festival is just nuttier than most. The fact that they accepted Grant as a vendor is testimony that they must appreciate lost people like us. Get this; Grant had a rack of "Rapture Shields" for sale, touted as protection against the inevitable gang of marauding pagans in the event this biblical prophecy came to light.

In truth, the Rapture Shields were a  collection of trash can lids, and they got a lot of laughs, but I don't remember anyone actually getting out their wallet for one. In fact, we were experiencing the coldest weather in spring- festival history and couldn't even take our hands out of our pockets. I swear it must have been 30 degrees, in May, and I am completely positive the dark side of the moon had warmer weather than Atlanta that weekend.

To this day, Lary remains mad at me for that festival, which is saying a lot. Though he may be lost like me and evil and he happily admits he's a thief and he even shot at me once just because he says I was breaking into his house (I was an uninvited guest, big deal), aside from all that, on the whole Lary doesn't hold grudges. But this is different, because he's  pretty protective of his art and here I'd talked him into hawking it at a spring festival, and not just any spring festival, but the very spring festival that the Gods of Freezing Rain and Wind and Gray Skies and Suffocating High Atmospheric Pressure all picked to converge over and crap on.

Because of that there were maybe one-and-a-half customers in the whole area, and we'd catch glimpses of them from our abandoned vendor tents, wandering about in the abyss, bundled up like lost Eskimos. "Over here!" we'd shout, imitating castaways trying to flag down distant rescue efforts. By the end of the first day I'd sold one item, a $30 sympathy purchase from one of the event coordinators. One guy acted interested in the most expensive piece I had to sell, though, and he even told me he'd go to the ATM to get the cash to pay for it. But the other artists all nodded jadedly when I told them about it. "The ATM getaway," they sympathized. "They all say that."

Of course, by the second day Lary and Grant had pretty much abandoned their booth and urged me to follow suit, but I refused. "If you're gonna fall on your ass, you better land on both butt cheeks," my mother used to say. So I stuck it out the next day, which is when the monsoon struck. People were leaning into the wind like old ladies trying to push through a stiff revolving door. Grant's entire rack of aprons blew down the street, along with the sign I had hung on his booth that read, "Please Steal This Shit." By the time the flash flood started, the other artists and I were so expended we simply shrugged. "Good," we thought. "Now we get to drown."

Luckily I'd borrowed my vendor booth  from my friend J.R., who is a metal artist. He designed the booth himself, and it was about as easy to put up as an Australian opera house, but just as sturdy. The other artists ran to it for cover, including J.R., whose new store-bought booth was leaking so badly he had to cover his art with a tarp. From there we watched the water roil down the street, sweeping people's wares with it, including a rusty tailgate  from the Sister Louisa collection with the  words "Get The Hell Outta Dodge!" painted across it.

I probably would have curled up and cried right then if not for the guy from the day before, who picked that time to pop in and hand me a wad of wet money fresh from the ATM. "I was afraid you'd be gone," he said, tucking my  most expensive piece under his arm. No,  not gone, I thought as I took his money, just lost is all.

It's spring so they'll be everywhere soon. I'm soured on them myself ever since my failed foray as a festival whore a few years back. Chalk it up to being lost a little, career wise.

I had a booth where I sold photography and begged friends to bring me beer because I felt trapped, fearing to leave lest some Dunwoody housewife let loose her inner klepto and pilfer one of my framed photographs. I'd end up practically giving them away by the festival's end anyway. "Take it! Christ!" I'd grumble,  funnel-cake flakes in my matted hair.

To this day my friends marvel at the bad luck I had weather-wise at every spring festival I entered, which totaled a whopping two before I packed up my entire frost-bitten ass and vowed never to return. Grant didn't even last that long. I'd talked him and Lary into reserving a booth next to me at the Inman Park Festival in '97, where Grant sold his Sister Louisa pieces espousing renegade evangelical musings (my favorite: "Nothing Harder Than a Preacher's Dick"), along with a rack of old aprons. Lary sold gilded shrines.

Of all the spring festivals, the Inman Park Festival remains my favorite — I mean, if you chisel off the hardened crust I've carefully  cultivated to shield myself from their lure. The Inman Park Festival is just nuttier than most. The fact that they accepted Grant as a vendor is testimony that they must appreciate lost people like us. Get this; Grant had a rack of "Rapture Shields" for sale, touted as protection against the inevitable gang of marauding pagans in the event this biblical prophecy came to light.

In truth, the Rapture Shields were a  collection of trash can lids, and they got a lot of laughs, but I don't remember anyone actually getting out their wallet for one. In fact, we were experiencing the coldest weather in spring- festival history and couldn't even take our hands out of our pockets. I swear it must have been 30 degrees, in May, and I am completely positive the dark side of the moon had warmer weather than Atlanta that weekend.

To this day, Lary remains mad at me for that festival, which is saying a lot. Though he may be lost like me and evil and he happily admits he's a thief and he even shot at me once just because he says I was breaking into his house (I was an uninvited guest, big deal), aside from all that, on the whole Lary doesn't hold grudges. But this is different, because he's  pretty protective of his art and here I'd talked him into hawking it at a spring festival, and not just any spring festival, but the very spring festival that the Gods of Freezing Rain and Wind and Gray Skies and Suffocating High Atmospheric Pressure all picked to converge over and crap on.

Because of that there were maybe one-and-a-half customers in the whole area, and we'd catch glimpses of them from our abandoned vendor tents, wandering about in the abyss, bundled up like lost Eskimos. "Over here!" we'd shout, imitating castaways trying to flag down distant rescue efforts. By the end of the first day I'd sold one item, a $30 sympathy purchase from one of the event coordinators. One guy acted interested in the most expensive piece I had to sell, though, and he even told me he'd go to the ATM to get the cash to pay for it. But the other artists all nodded jadedly when I told them about it. "The ATM getaway," they sympathized. "They all say that."

Of course, by the second day Lary and Grant had pretty much abandoned their booth and urged me to follow suit, but I refused. "If you're gonna fall on your ass, you better land on both butt cheeks," my mother used to say. So I stuck it out the next day, which is when the monsoon struck. People were leaning into the wind like old ladies trying to push through a stiff revolving door. Grant's entire rack of aprons blew down the street, along with the sign I had hung on his booth that read, "Please Steal This Shit." By the time the flash flood started, the other artists and I were so expended we simply shrugged. "Good," we thought. "Now we get to drown."

Luckily I'd borrowed my vendor booth  from my friend J.R., who is a metal artist. He designed the booth himself, and it was about as easy to put up as an Australian opera house, but just as sturdy. The other artists ran to it for cover, including J.R., whose new store-bought booth was leaking so badly he had to cover his art with a tarp. From there we watched the water roil down the street, sweeping people's wares with it, including a rusty tailgate  from the Sister Louisa collection with the  words "Get The Hell Outta Dodge!" painted across it.

I probably would have curled up and cried right then if not for the guy from the day before, who picked that time to pop in and hand me a wad of wet money fresh from the ATM. "I was afraid you'd be gone," he said, tucking my  most expensive piece under his arm. No,  not gone, I thought as I took his money, just lost is all.

  string(3626) "THIS YEAR'S the sixth annual AthFest, downtown Athens' celebration of music and art, features performances by more than 125 bands and musicians. "Like the city of Athens, the festival is pretty laid back," says festival promotions chairman Jeff Montgomery. "Unlike bigger music-related events, AthFest is still comfortable for  families to enjoy together."

This year, the otherwise mild-mannered Montgomery will be getting in on the fun himself, with his own act playing the 40 Watt Thursday, June 20. Das Cowboys U.K., the DJ duo featuring Montgomery and Nelson Wells (head of Athens radio promotions company Team Clermont), is a just-for-fun unit that will play a late-night set after the Athens Music awards.

"It's fun to make folks dance," Montgomery says. "The so-called  golden age of Athens' music was based on people dancing and having fun. Hopefully, we can help bring that  spirit back."

Like the early '80s heyday of arty new-wave music, the DJ scene is a familiar clique. "We all know each other, swap gigs and recommend others, and go dance at each others' shows. There isn't any competition, really." While there's some overlap of tunes between popular Athens DJ acts Krush Girls, DJ Twin Powers and the Baxter Street Boys, Montgomery says the groups all have their own styles and signature songs.

"Our motto — 'Giddy the fuck up' — was actually coined by DJ Ass Money (Chris Bilheimer of the Krush Girls)," says Montgomery. "We all play stuff to get people moving. Everything from Aretha Franklin's 'Think' to Pink's 'Get the Party Started.'"

The current Athens DJ scene is charmingly reminiscent of the days when Pylon's Michael Lachowski and others would host late-night dance parties at the 40 Watt and Georgia Theatre. The late hours and loss of inhibitions on the dance floor lets even the most hardcore indie-rock fan let go and dance. "The concept of throwing down and having fun dancing is still here in Athens," Montgomery says. "When we play ELO's 'Don't Bring Me Down' at 2 a.m., everybody's singing along and having fun. And that's the spirit of Athens music, right there.

"People don't dance as much to bands anymore — they think they're too cool," he continues, "So nowadays, they need a good excuse to get some exercise instead of  looking morose and sucking on a PBR in the  corner. It's like the early '80s scene when the party is really going."

Athens, of course, is full of history, and in anticipation of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame's 25 Years of Athens Music exhibit, opening June 29 in Macon, the city is decked out in displays of its music history. The "Scene Seen Music Memorabilia Tour" features 15 tableaus of Athens music  artifacts — album covers, vintage rock  photos, classic posters, musical instruments and other artifacts — displayed in downtown storefronts through June 23.

The tour builds upon a smaller  music-history exhibit held at the Morton Theater during last year's AthFest. Organizers hope to find a permanent home for all the memorabilia in the future.

When he's not spinning records or  promoting AthFest, Montgomery, with fellow festival organizer Troy Aubrey, also runs Athensmusic.com, a website that sells Athens-related CDs and LPs. "After Japancakes played last year," Montgomery says. "The Athensmusic.com booth sold a bunch of CDs to folks who had obviously never heard the band, or even their name, before. But they stuck around, watched the show, and loved what they heard. And that's why we do AthFest."

"Our motto — 'Giddy the fuck up' — was actually coined by DJ Ass Money (Chris Bilheimer of the Krush Girls)," says Montgomery. "We all play stuff to get people moving. Everything from Aretha Franklin's 'Think' to Pink's 'Get the Party Started.'"

The current Athens DJ scene is charmingly reminiscent of the days when Pylon's Michael Lachowski and others would host late-night dance parties at the 40 Watt and Georgia Theatre. The late hours and loss of inhibitions on the dance floor lets even the most hardcore indie-rock fan let go and dance. "The concept of throwing down and having fun dancing is still here in Athens," Montgomery says. "When we play ELO's 'Don't Bring Me Down' at 2 a.m., everybody's singing along and having fun. And that's the spirit of Athens music, right there.

"People don't dance as much to bands anymore — they think they're too cool," he continues, "So nowadays, they need a good excuse to get some exercise instead of  looking morose and sucking on a PBR in the  corner. It's like the early '80s scene when the party is really going."

Athens, of course, is full of history, and in anticipation of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame's 25 Years of Athens Music exhibit, opening June 29 in Macon, the city is decked out in displays of its music history. The "Scene Seen Music Memorabilia Tour" features 15 tableaus of Athens music  artifacts — album covers, vintage rock  photos, classic posters, musical instruments and other artifacts — displayed in downtown storefronts through June 23.

The tour builds upon a smaller  music-history exhibit held at the Morton Theater during last year's AthFest. Organizers hope to find a permanent home for all the memorabilia in the future.

When he's not spinning records or  promoting AthFest, Montgomery, with fellow festival organizer Troy Aubrey, also runs Athensmusic.com, a website that sells Athens-related CDs and LPs. "After Japancakes played last year," Montgomery says. "The Athensmusic.com booth sold a bunch of CDs to folks who had obviously never heard the band, or even their name, before. But they stuck around, watched the show, and loved what they heard. And that's why we do AthFest."

AthFest 2002 runs June 20-23 in  downtown Athens. 706-548-1973. www.athfest.com.??

  string(3023) "Tucked into  a 100-acre former Christmas tree park just west of Atlanta, Harvestfest has evolved into a major regional event within the bluegrass and improvisational rock/funk/jazz (i.e. jam band) scenes. Celebrating its fifth year with more than 30 acts on four stages, the event offers an interesting mix of  living bluegrass legends, next-school  bluegrass youth, funky jazz wild cards and  standard jam fodder. The stylistic juxtaposition of featured performers is highly diverse and at times almost perplexing.

"All the bands at Harvestfest are about the roots of American music,"  says event founder Thomas "T-Dawg" Helland. "Bluegrass and funk came  from that same center of music, but  have extended in different ways." Here are a few of Harvestfest's healthiest extensions.

Two degrees of bluegrass  separation: From Bill Monroe, arguably the father of the bluegrass style, to Leftover Salmon (9 p.m. Sept. 28; main stage) and the rest of the latest generation of psychedelic slam-grass outfits, the picking tradition has traced a tightly connected lineage over the past half-century. The history of several featured Harvestfest performers forms one influential strand.

Harvestfest elder statesman Vassar Clements (3:30 p.m. Sept. 29; main stage) is one of the most talented and prolific bluegrass fiddlers alive. His career in bluegrass began in 1949 as part of Bill Monroe's venerable Bluegrass Boys, which would later include guitarist/banjo-player Del McCoury (4:30 p.m. Sept. 28; main stage).

Clements hooked up with Peter Rowan, Jerry Garcia and David Grisman (5:30 p.m. Sept. 29; main stage) in 1973 to record the bluegrass benchmark, Old and in the Way. A year earlier, Garcia and the Grateful Dead had performed on Demon in Disguise, an album by influential '70s folk musician and former Bob Dylan sideman David Bromberg (2 p.m. Sept. 29; main stage).

Autumn leaves: Harvestfest jazz Few jazz musicians in the last decade have performed as relentlessly or been as vital to the rejuvenation of jazz as Karl Denson. Back in the early (pre-acid) '90s, when the Rippingtons were the closest thing to hip, Denson stepped out of his role as Lenny Kravitz's tenor sax man to form the Greyboy AllStars, a funky bugaloo unit that reintroduced youthful energy and class to crusty contemporary jazz styles. The success of the AllStars presaged a movement of groove-inflected new-school jazz artists like Charlie Hunter and Soulive (8:30 p.m. Sept. 27; main stage; see article). Denson's current assembly, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe (11:30 p.m. Sept. 28; main stage) adds soulful vocals and more  complex composition to the Greyboy  get-down factor.

Comprising the third line of this weekend's organ jazz offensive is the Bay Area's Om Trio (3:30 p.m. Sept. 27; CuCu's Nest stage). One of the freshest faces at Harvestfest, Om is occasionally prone to lapses in improvisational  discipline. But at its best, this young crew crafts smooth, compact layers of Fender Rhodes and crisp rhythm.

  string(1550) "Ticket prices to Atlanta's many public festivals could shoot skyward if a proposed city ordinance that triples some permit fees is approved. That's the concern of a group of festival organizations that banded together last week under the banner of the Atlanta Events and Festivals Association to solidify their lobbying power.

The group — which includes Music Midtown, Atlanta Pride Festival, Peachtree Road Race, Sweet Auburn Festival, Inman Park Festival, Virginia Highland Summerfest, St. Patrick's Day Parade, Downtown Rocks and Lenox Fireworks — worries that the proposal will stifle new festivals and prove costly to existing ones, says Donna Narducci, executive director of the Atlanta Pride Committee.

For instance, where larger festivals such as Music Midtown and Atlanta Pride now pay $6,500 for their annual permits, the new rules would more than triple the fees for the for-profit Music Midtown, to $20,000, and double the cost for the nonprofit Atlanta Pride, to $11,000.

The association is likewise concerned about a proposed requirement to give the city a clean-up deposit up-front, based on the size of the expected crowd. For an event the size of Atlanta Pride, that expense could be as much as $75,000, without a detailed procedure for recovering the unused funds, Narducci says.

"That's like paying a penalty for a violation that hasn't occurred," she explains, adding that the result could be fewer events and higher ticket prices.

The proposal is scheduled to be debated next month by the City Council.??

  string(12892) "Hair care


b>American Mullet, an expose of that aesthetically challenged haircut, is an unusually tender, funny treatment of the politics of hair.

The film begins on a distinctly silly note as a pair of documentarians (the film's British narrator and, presumably, director Jennifer Arnold) take a road trip across America holding a postcard with their quarry: an image of a perfect mullet.

Asking, "Have you seen this hairstyle?" the documentarians get an affirmative from a surprising mix of people: a Vegas country bar DJ who has some interesting theories about the appeal of long hair for bi-curious women; a man who silences critics of his "hippie" hairstyle when he tells them he sells the long "party in the back" portion to a group that helps children who've lost their hair to cancer; an angelic little boy who keeps his hair long in deference to his mother's sentimental attachment to his never-shorn baby hair; and one of the more interesting mullet subgenres — gay women who have adopted the gender-neutral look as a badge of mainstream defiance.

Man- and woman-on-the-street interviews with the non-mulleted reveal a surprising hatred for the hairstyle, and the filmmakers soon reveal an undercurrent of classism lurking beneath the comments. One of the worst offenders is the creator of a mullet website who posts photographs of anonymous mullet-owners with "humorous" accompanying text describing his targets in maliciously derogatory terms.

The lesbian who describes her mullet as a "genderless," iconoclastic hairstyle for both male and female rebels hits the nail on the head when she points out that such hatred for one hairstyle may often hide a disdain for the groups that sport it — the poor and other outsiders who don't have the money or interest in keeping up with current mainstream style.

The film's interview subjects are proud, defiant, and most of them are quite eloquent about what their style means. It would have been very easy for American Mullet to have just offered a jocular translation of the mullet website's mocking irony, but Arnold's clever, humane film instead tries for something more challenging — and succeeds.

Rock godesses


__Down and Out with the Dolls is a fast-paced, funny yarn about the chaotic rise and hair-pulling plummet of an all-girl Portland band, the Paper Dolls. Well-served by the ferocious energy of its alterna-rock soundtrack, Dolls plunges full force into its thrillingly ragtag story of the loves, jealousies and friendships of this foursome.

Rock goddess Fauna (Zoe Poledouris), a steely Manic Panic siren with the kill-or-be-killed ambition of a Courtney Love, teams up with a trio of girls trying to start their own fledgling band. Reggie (Kinnie Starr) is a lesbian dabbling in heterosexuality with the slouchy cool and baby doll features of an indie Isabelle Adjani. Lavender (Melody Moore) is the vintage dress-wearing record store clerk contemplating shacking up with her boyfriend. And Kali (Nicole Barrett) is a neurotic but talented innocent in love with the punk rock star Levi (real indie rocker Coyote Shivers), who sees greener fields with Fauna.

Like Singles, but with a far better grasp on the aesthetics of this fringe scene, Dolls has a shaggy and completely engaging ambiance. It sports a whiplash sense of humor to boot. In a moment of tension before the Paper Dolls' first gig that has Kali in a lather, the terminally icy Fauna warns, "If you don't stop stressing, you're going to give me a herpes breakout."

Director Kurt Voss has collaborated with Allison Anders as screenwriter on several projects including Sugar Town, and he brings the raw energy and subcultural intensity of that film to Dolls. Underground musician Shivers and Poledouris add their own charismatic momentum and power chords with original music that perfectly balances the equally raw, slap happy visuals. What keeps it all real is Voss' integrity in sticking close to the spirit of this scene, and the across-the-board polymorphous sexiness of the cast.

Mr. Fancypants


nlike Smoke Signals, which Alexie scripted, Fancydancing abandons the structures and devices of traditional storytelling for a fluid, metaphorical unfolding of images and events. Time, memory and truth are slippery elements turned and tossed about until a reality more profound than simple fact is eventually revealed.

Echoing Native American forms of oral history, the film discloses through poems, fables, songs and dreams the inner struggles of a man divided. On the one hand, Seymour embraces his homosexuality, finding comfort in a prickly relationship with his white lover in downtown Seattle. He revels in his public lectures and readings of poems about life on the rez delivered to earnest white audiences who gingerly kiss his cheek and touch his hair in gratitude for assuaging their guilt.

But when Seymour makes a long-overdue return home for the funeral of a boyhood friend, he likens the reservation to a prison while imagining a life raising children with former girlfriend Agnes (Michelle St. John), who provides the film's emotional center as a "half-breed" who's reconciled her two worlds. Tensions climax in a confrontation between Seymour and childhood friend Aristotle (Gene Tagaban). The two had left the reservation to attend college together, but Aristotle — whose future held out as much promise as Seymour's — dropped out to return home where he's spent his life battling alcoholism and an uncontrollable rage.

Digitally recorded using bare-bones production values, The Business of Fancydancing challenges the viewer with an unconventional narrative fraught with complex dilemmas without resolution, but a truer portrayal of the dichotomies of contemporary life on the reservation has probably yet to be made.

The Business of Fancydancing screens Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. Regal Cinemas Hollywood 24.
 


Naked admiration


The five short films that make up __Secrets and Admirers: A Boy's Shorts Program all subscribe to the rules of attraction. In each, a beguiling youth serves as another man's object of affection, and while scenes frequently involve skin, showers or suntan lotion, the program never crosses the line into actual pornography, instead playing like an anthology of erotica.

In the brief "Baby Blue," we cut between shots of a young man driving and showering, and hear his reminiscence of his childhood sexual experiences. Essentially a sketch, "Baby Blue" is effective enough to make us wish it had a more definitive payoff. It's smartly paired with "Like a Brother," which introduces two high schoolers on a Labor Day vacation and explores the pressures drawing them close and pushing them away.

A fellow plays the field when his lover goes on vacation in "The Boyfriend," which features a funny sequence involving an attempted hook-up under a bookstore clerk's watchful eye. However, "The Boyfriend's" implied theme — that infidelity can improve a committed relationship — feels like a weak justification for sleeping around. "Rock Bottom" has more solid footing, showing a heavyset loner picking up a drug hustler. Here, the exploiter and the exploited aren't the ones we first assume.

Dan Castle's 30-minute "The Visitor" provides the program's highlight, especially with the sharp, melancholy performance from Barry Otto (an Australian character actor from such cult hits as Strictly Ballroom and Bliss). Otto plays an aging writer who has left a friend's deathbed to attempt to write near the beaches of Sydney. A hunky surfer reminds the writer of both his dying companion and his own lost youth, as the film shows in subtle but confidently rendered details. "The Visitor" benefits from lush location footage and builds to an admirably ambiguous ending that hints at a complexity of mixed feelings that the other shorts strive, with less success, to make explicit.

Pet project


If every feline gets nine lives, __P.S. Your Cat is Dead has expended half of its already. Written by James Kirkwood (A Chorus Line), the script originated as a play, later morphed into a darker novel and eventually returned to the stage to attract a minor cult following. (Sal Mineo was leaving a rehearsal of the play when he was stabbed in 1976.)

In its latest incarnation, Steve Guttenberg (Police Academy, Three Men and a Baby) — who co-produced, directed and stars — melds together the darker aspects of the novel with the play for a quirky, if slightly uneven, film treatment. In a casting stretch, Guttenberg plays washed-up actor Jimmy Zoole, who on New Year's Eve returns home to find his girlfriend packing her bags and his beloved cat kaput. Jimmy, who's just been canned from his one-man Hamlet and whose apartment has been burglarized twice, teeters toward emotional breakdown until he discovers that said burglar has returned — and is hiding under his bed.

Here the sleepy script finally wakes up, taking a turn toward black comedy as Jimmy wrestles with the intruder and eventually hog-ties him face down on the kitchen counter. Eddie (Lombardo Boyar), the burglar, at first taunts his captor, but the men drift into a sort of extended therapy session, with Jimmy emoting over the death of his best friend (as well as the cat) and Eddie's somewhat abrupt revelation that he is gay. "Gay is just a word," he says, "like tall. Everyone is a little tall."

Jimmy's turbulent past with emasculating women comes into question. When Eddie complains that he has to urinate, Jimmy violently cuts his hostage's jeans off him, resulting in a bizarre visual metaphor for repressed sexuality and a scene the bondage set will titter over.

P.S. Your Cat is Dead asks questions of masculinity and repression, but ultimately fails to provide any clear or original answers. Not to let the cat out of the bag, but a surprisingly tidy ending ties up both Jimmy's abandoned artistic dreams and puts Eddie back on the straight and narrow — so to speak.

Female Fantasia


Polly Vandersma, who sports a baby bird fluff of carroty hair and an embarrassed, clumsy manner, is a character so endearing and adorably gawky you want to scoop her up in your arms and shelter her from the world.

But Canadian director Patricia Rozema soon makes it clear that her first feature, I've Heard the Mermaids Singing, is not really a film concerned with anything as unimaginative as the real world. There is a carbonated sweetness to this 1987 charmer that almost immediately makes it more a vision of how life could be than what it actually is.

A failed secretary once told she is "organizationally impaired," waifish Polly (Sheila McCarthy) finds shelter from her aimless unemployment with sophisticated gallery curator Gabrielle (Paule Baillargeon), who takes a shine to the girl. Mermaids is narrated by Polly as she directly addresses a video camera in her recorded "confessional, and it tracks her growing infatuation with the chic curator whose many charms, both physical and intellectual, send Polly into a foggy, besotted stupor.

In humorous vignettes, the scatterbrained Polly soaks in ornate fantasies of scaling tall buildings, impressing Gabrielle with her sparkling acumen and other dreamy heights before snapping back to reality. What might be laughable or pathetic in another film is treated with heartrending sympathy by Rozema. There are few things more poignant and expressive of the human condition than Polly in her tiny bachelorette apartment, accompanied by her cats, preparing what looks like a dinner of canned peas, pickles and crackers while waving her tiny hand as she "conducts" a recorded opera.

The curator may come with a posh pedigree and a high-status job, but Polly is a true visionary whose unique vantage is expressed on daily jaunts when she mounts her Barbie-pink bicycle and roams Toronto in search of subjects to photograph.

Though the '80s outfits are cringe-inducing and the "art world" conversations often ludicrously absurd, Mermaids is a charming film about the depths of female affection and the emotionally complex life of a seemingly dim and inconsequential person whose "naive" vision of the world proves far more meaningful, adventurous and interesting than any art world sophisticate's.

What keeps it all real is Voss' integrity in sticking close to the spirit of this scene, and the across-the-board polymorphous sexiness of the cast.

__Mr. Fancypants__


nlike ''Smoke Signals,'' which Alexie scripted, ''Fancydancing'' abandons the structures and devices of traditional storytelling for a fluid, metaphorical unfolding of images and events. Time, memory and truth are slippery elements turned and tossed about until a reality more profound than simple fact is eventually revealed.

Echoing Native American forms of oral history, the film discloses through poems, fables, songs and dreams the inner struggles of a man divided. On the one hand, Seymour embraces his homosexuality, finding comfort in a prickly relationship with his white lover in downtown Seattle. He revels in his public lectures and readings of poems about life on the rez delivered to earnest white audiences who gingerly kiss his cheek and touch his hair in gratitude for assuaging their guilt.

But when Seymour makes a long-overdue return home for the funeral of a boyhood friend, he likens the reservation to a prison while imagining a life raising children with former girlfriend Agnes (Michelle St. John), who provides the film's emotional center as a "half-breed" who's reconciled her two worlds. Tensions climax in a confrontation between Seymour and childhood friend Aristotle (Gene Tagaban). The two had left the reservation to attend college together, but Aristotle — whose future held out as much promise as Seymour's — dropped out to return home where he's spent his life battling alcoholism and an uncontrollable rage.

Digitally recorded using bare-bones production values, ''The Business of Fancydancing'' challenges the viewer with an unconventional narrative fraught with complex dilemmas without resolution, but a truer portrayal of the dichotomies of contemporary life on the reservation has probably yet to be made.

__Naked admiration__


The five short films that make up __''Secrets and Admirers: A Boy's Shorts Program'' all subscribe to the rules of attraction. In each, a beguiling youth serves as another man's object of affection, and while scenes frequently involve skin, showers or suntan lotion, the program never crosses the line into actual pornography, instead playing like an anthology of erotica.

In the brief "Baby Blue," we cut between shots of a young man driving and showering, and hear his reminiscence of his childhood sexual experiences. Essentially a sketch, "Baby Blue" is effective enough to make us wish it had a more definitive payoff. It's smartly paired with "Like a Brother," which introduces two high schoolers on a Labor Day vacation and explores the pressures drawing them close and pushing them away.

A fellow plays the field when his lover goes on vacation in "The Boyfriend," which features a funny sequence involving an attempted hook-up under a bookstore clerk's watchful eye. However, "The Boyfriend's" implied theme — that infidelity can improve a committed relationship — feels like a weak justification for sleeping around. "Rock Bottom" has more solid footing, showing a heavyset loner picking up a drug hustler. Here, the exploiter and the exploited aren't the ones we first assume.

Dan Castle's 30-minute "The Visitor" provides the program's highlight, especially with the sharp, melancholy performance from Barry Otto (an Australian character actor from such cult hits as ''Strictly Ballroom'' and ''Bliss''). Otto plays an aging writer who has left a friend's deathbed to attempt to write near the beaches of Sydney. A hunky surfer reminds the writer of both his dying companion and his own lost youth, as the film shows in subtle but confidently rendered details. "The Visitor" benefits from lush location footage and builds to an admirably ambiguous ending that hints at a complexity of mixed feelings that the other shorts strive, with less success, to make explicit.

__Pet project__


__If every feline __gets nine lives, __''P.S. Your Cat is Dead'' has expended half of its already. Written by James Kirkwood (''A Chorus Line''), the script originated as a play, later morphed into a darker novel and eventually returned to the stage to attract a minor cult following. (Sal Mineo was leaving a rehearsal of the play when he was stabbed in 1976.)

In its latest incarnation, Steve Guttenberg (''Police Academy, Three Men and a Baby'') — who co-produced, directed and stars — melds together the darker aspects of the novel with the play for a quirky, if slightly uneven, film treatment. In a casting stretch, Guttenberg plays washed-up actor Jimmy Zoole, who on New Year's Eve returns home to find his girlfriend packing her bags and his beloved cat kaput. Jimmy, who's just been canned from his one-man ''Hamlet'' and whose apartment has been burglarized twice, teeters toward emotional breakdown until he discovers that said burglar has returned — and is hiding under his bed.

Here the sleepy script finally wakes up, taking a turn toward black comedy as Jimmy wrestles with the intruder and eventually hog-ties him face down on the kitchen counter. Eddie (Lombardo Boyar), the burglar, at first taunts his captor, but the men drift into a sort of extended therapy session, with Jimmy emoting over the death of his best friend (as well as the cat) and Eddie's somewhat abrupt revelation that he is gay. "Gay is just a word," he says, "like tall. Everyone is a little tall."

Jimmy's turbulent past with emasculating women comes into question. When Eddie complains that he has to urinate, Jimmy violently cuts his hostage's jeans off him, resulting in a bizarre visual metaphor for repressed sexuality and a scene the bondage set will titter over.

''P.S. Your Cat is Dead'' asks questions of masculinity and repression, but ultimately fails to provide any clear or original answers. Not to let the cat out of the bag, but a surprisingly tidy ending ties up both Jimmy's abandoned artistic dreams and puts Eddie back on the straight and narrow — so to speak.

__Female Fantasia__


Polly Vandersma, who sports a baby bird fluff of carroty hair and an embarrassed, clumsy manner, is a character so endearing and adorably gawky you want to scoop her up in your arms and shelter her from the world.

But Canadian director Patricia Rozema soon makes it clear that her first feature, __''I've Heard the Mermaids Singing''__, is not really a film concerned with anything as unimaginative as the real world. There is a carbonated sweetness to this 1987 charmer that almost immediately makes it more a vision of how life ''could'' be than what it actually is.

A failed secretary once told she is "organizationally impaired," waifish Polly (Sheila McCarthy) finds shelter from her aimless unemployment with sophisticated gallery curator Gabrielle (Paule Baillargeon), who takes a shine to the girl. ''Mermaids'' is narrated by Polly as she directly addresses a video camera in her recorded "confessional, and it tracks her growing infatuation with the chic curator whose many charms, both physical and intellectual, send Polly into a foggy, besotted stupor.

In humorous vignettes, the scatterbrained Polly soaks in ornate fantasies of scaling tall buildings, impressing Gabrielle with her sparkling acumen and other dreamy heights before snapping back to reality. What might be laughable or pathetic in another film is treated with heartrending sympathy by Rozema. There are few things more poignant and expressive of the human condition than Polly in her tiny bachelorette apartment, accompanied by her cats, preparing what looks like a dinner of canned peas, pickles and crackers while waving her tiny hand as she "conducts" a recorded opera.

The curator may come with a posh pedigree and a high-status job, but Polly is a true visionary whose unique vantage is expressed on daily jaunts when she mounts her Barbie-pink bicycle and roams Toronto in search of subjects to photograph.

Though the '80s outfits are cringe-inducing and the "art world" conversations often ludicrously absurd, ''Mermaids'' is a charming film about the depths of female affection and the emotionally complex life of a seemingly dim and inconsequential person whose "naive" vision of the world proves far more meaningful, adventurous and interesting than any art world sophisticate's.

b>American Mullet, an expose of that aesthetically challenged haircut, is an unusually tender, funny treatment of the politics of hair.

The film begins on a distinctly silly note as a pair of documentarians (the film's British narrator and, presumably, director Jennifer Arnold) take a road trip across America holding a postcard with their quarry: an image of a perfect mullet.

Asking, "Have you seen this hairstyle?" the documentarians get an affirmative from a surprising mix of people: a Vegas country bar DJ who has some interesting theories about the appeal of long hair for bi-curious women; a man who silences critics of his "hippie" hairstyle when he tells them he sells the long "party in the back" portion to a group that helps children who've lost their hair to cancer; an angelic little boy who keeps his hair long in deference to his mother's sentimental attachment to his never-shorn baby hair; and one of the more interesting mullet subgenres — gay women who have adopted the gender-neutral look as a badge of mainstream defiance.

Man- and woman-on-the-street interviews with the non-mulleted reveal a surprising hatred for the hairstyle, and the filmmakers soon reveal an undercurrent of classism lurking beneath the comments. One of the worst offenders is the creator of a mullet website who posts photographs of anonymous mullet-owners with "humorous" accompanying text describing his targets in maliciously derogatory terms.

The lesbian who describes her mullet as a "genderless," iconoclastic hairstyle for both male and female rebels hits the nail on the head when she points out that such hatred for one hairstyle may often hide a disdain for the groups that sport it — the poor and other outsiders who don't have the money or interest in keeping up with current mainstream style.

The film's interview subjects are proud, defiant, and most of them are quite eloquent about what their style means. It would have been very easy for American Mullet to have just offered a jocular translation of the mullet website's mocking irony, but Arnold's clever, humane film instead tries for something more challenging — and succeeds.

Rock godesses


__Down and Out with the Dolls is a fast-paced, funny yarn about the chaotic rise and hair-pulling plummet of an all-girl Portland band, the Paper Dolls. Well-served by the ferocious energy of its alterna-rock soundtrack, Dolls plunges full force into its thrillingly ragtag story of the loves, jealousies and friendships of this foursome.

Rock goddess Fauna (Zoe Poledouris), a steely Manic Panic siren with the kill-or-be-killed ambition of a Courtney Love, teams up with a trio of girls trying to start their own fledgling band. Reggie (Kinnie Starr) is a lesbian dabbling in heterosexuality with the slouchy cool and baby doll features of an indie Isabelle Adjani. Lavender (Melody Moore) is the vintage dress-wearing record store clerk contemplating shacking up with her boyfriend. And Kali (Nicole Barrett) is a neurotic but talented innocent in love with the punk rock star Levi (real indie rocker Coyote Shivers), who sees greener fields with Fauna.

Like Singles, but with a far better grasp on the aesthetics of this fringe scene, Dolls has a shaggy and completely engaging ambiance. It sports a whiplash sense of humor to boot. In a moment of tension before the Paper Dolls' first gig that has Kali in a lather, the terminally icy Fauna warns, "If you don't stop stressing, you're going to give me a herpes breakout."

Director Kurt Voss has collaborated with Allison Anders as screenwriter on several projects including Sugar Town, and he brings the raw energy and subcultural intensity of that film to Dolls. Underground musician Shivers and Poledouris add their own charismatic momentum and power chords with original music that perfectly balances the equally raw, slap happy visuals. What keeps it all real is Voss' integrity in sticking close to the spirit of this scene, and the across-the-board polymorphous sexiness of the cast.
