Once asked by Playboy
magazine how he managed to
resist the throngs of adoring
female fans who tried to
tempt him away from his
wife. Joanne Woodward. Paul
Newman replied in a way
that was characteristically
both mischievous and direct:
“Why should I go out for
hamburger when I can have
steak at home?“ Woodward.
an ardent feminist, later chid-
ed her husband for his “chau—
vinist statement,“ and he
passed it off, saying it was
“the remark of a young. lusty.

That playful give-and-
take was typical of an atypi-
cal Hollywood Iove affair.
one that spanned 50 years -
and came to an end on Sept.
26 when. at the age of 83.
Paul Leonard Newman
passed away after a quiet bat-

Westport, Conn.. home he
shared with Woodward, 78.

When the pair met in the
early I950s. they were just
two struggling actors chasing
auditions in New York City.
The ex-Georgia beauty
queen. all of 23. had been in
and out of casting calls all
day and ducked into her
agent's office to escape the
smoldering August heat. And
there he was. “this gorgeous
Arrow Collar ad in a seer—
sucker suit." she later re-
called. “He looked like he
had just been kept on ice.
And I hated him."

His looks weren‘t the

only minus. The Kenyon Col-
lege grad had recently moved

with his wife. whom he mar—
ried in I949. and their tod-
dler. Scott. Newman had left
his job managing his dad’s
sporting—goods store in order
to become an actor out East.
Afraid of what they felt.
Woodward ordered Newman
to keep away. and the two
avoided each other until
I957. when they were both
cast in the drama The Long.
Hot Summer. With Newman
still married. they started qui—
etly living together. After re—
fusing to grant him a divorce.
Witte finally gave in and ob-
tained one in Mexico. Shortly
after. on Jan. 29. 1958. New-
man and Woodward made it
official. marrying at the Hotel
El Rancho in Las Vegas.
“They just totally took de-
light in one another." actor
James Naughton. one of
Newman’s best friends. tells
Us of the couple’s passionate
romance. “He made her

It was around this time
that Newman‘s career took
off. thanks to iconic roles in
I96I 's “The Hustler." I963's
“Hud” and I9o9's “Butch

Kid." Meanwhile Woodward
chose to focus her life on
their partnership in charity
and helping raise their three
daughters. Nell. 49. Lissy.
47. and Clea. 43. “Joanne re-
ally gave up her career for
me." he said of why he was

Album ‘flops'
but reminder
of hip-hop

De La Soul is as important to hip-hop as the
scratch is to a‘DJ. Aside from being incredible
stage performers and having a reputation (and
the record to prove it) of putting out consistently
dope material. they have giv-
en far more to the culture
than any other group. The
years change. but De La
Soul does not. remaining
loyal to their fomiula and
staying relevant to the new
generations at the same time.
Their fomiula. always keep-
ing their material fresh. rele—







vant and true to self. is the

ANTONET" same fomtula that has won

Kernel them Grammys. kCPl them

headlining music festivals to
this day. and earned them a
spot on the honoree‘s throne
at VHl’s Hip Hop Honors this year. The Strong
lsland crew had a milestone year in 1996. they
let go of longtime producer Prince Paul‘s hand
and began to walk the road on their own. the
product: “Stakes ls High."

“Stakes Is High“ was a commercial flop. It
received mixed revieWs and did poorly in stores.
The three singles to spawn from the album nev-
er made a mark on pop or hip—hop charts. Al—
though seen as a commercial failure. it is con-
sidered by hip—hop heads to be one of De La's
best albums to date. Flaunting production front
the late great J Dilla (then called Jay Dee) and
acting as a launch pad for the career of a young
Mos Def. “Stakes is High" is every hip-hoppers
fall back album. No matter how fed up with hip-
hop you get. “Stakes" will always be there to re—
mind you how great this culture has been to

The reason this album never quite made it
past the smart folks over at Nielsen Soundscan
could have been due to the fact that it was an al—
bum far beyond its years. Today‘s hip-hop is
caught in two phases. One. trying to retum to a
certain era of hip-hop fertility. and two. running
in place right where you are by choosing a gim—
mick that sells records and sticking with it until
fans no longer react positively to it. "Stakes is
High" looked past I996 for inspiration. De La
Soul employed more of their 0th work on this
record than we‘ve ever seen. handling much of
the production themselves so their creative vi—
sion wasn‘t stifled. The vocals are comparable
to driving a 2006 $65 Benz irt 1996 way be-
yond its time. The title track has Trugoy and
Posdnuos defending their beloved hip—hop
against the clichés that were beginning to rear
their ugly heads. Including. but not limited to:
blunts. Versace glasses. slang. half-ass award
shows. name—brand clothes. cocaine and crack.
All things we see in surplus today,

Following the witch hunt against whackness
comes the beautifully crafted. summertime fa-
vorite "Sunshine." A track that can warm the
coldest day and most definitely bring the sun
front behind that one cloud that always steals
your light on a clear day. this track really brings
the crew down to earth. lf yoti think that a mul~
ti—platinum. Grammy 'dWiil'd‘Wlllnlllg rapper is
any different frortt you when it all comes dowit
to it. this song proves that theory wrong. The
classically crafted. boom-bap beat rcllccts the
wannth of the lyrics making this one of those
tracks you can knock out to at Woodland Park
on a Sunday afternoon.

Overall. “Stakes Is High" may have failed to
hit the moon in the public eye. but it definitely
landed among so many other hipAhop classics
that make tip the surrounding stars. The trio
frotti Long island proves beyond a reasonable
doubt that no matter ltow long they are out of
the limelight they will continue to remain rele—
vant to the culture and the millions of us that
make it up. From ")6 ‘til infinity. De La Soul is

Folds ‘not the same’ but better

kwm y emu .com

In the words of the conductor he‘s “pro-
found and hilarious. sometimes at the same
time.“ ~

Saturday, Ben Folds, alongside the
Louisville Orchestra. put on a concert that
had fans going from their seats to their feet
clapping and cheering the whole time.

The audience for the evening wasn‘t
filled with your average Folds followers, see-
ing as the orchestra performed solo prior to
Folds making his way to the stage. But the
Folds/orchestra duo definitely seemed to
please the ears of the older generation portion
of the audience. I believe this concert may
have gained Folds a new group of listeners.

As Folds played his first song of the
evening. "Zak and Sara." l was a little skep—
tical because I had to strain my ears to hear
Folds above the overbearing orchestra.

But never fear, the first song was no indi-
cation of how the rest of the night would play
out. because the rest of the concert was. in
the words of Folds himself. “f—ing awesome."
with the fans screaming “I love you Ben“ off
and on throughout the entire evening.

The combination of the orchestra and
Folds' rhythmical fingers and quirky char-
acter proved to be enough to win over the
audience as he performed a number of
songs off his hit album. “Ben Folds Live."
which I have to say is one of his better al-
bums. but with the orchestra behind him. in
my view that album is now'his best album.

Songs like “The Luckiest." "One
Down." “Brick." "Fred Jones Pt. 2" and
“Narcolepsy" filled the Kentucky Center for
the Performing Arts in Louisville. which
proved to have better acoustics than the Sin—
gletary Center for the Performing Arts.

Occasionally Folds would spit out a few
tunes from back in the day when Ben Folds
Five was still alive. but other than that he
stayed mostly with songs that were released
since the band split back in 2000.

When we got to the “choir portion of
the evening" the audience seemed ready and
willing to show off their highly off pitch
voices. or maybe the people around me
were just tone deaf. In “Not the Same."
Folds would cue in the audience with his
hands while singing at the same time. creat-
ing a masterpiece like something you would
see on the Sunday moming church hour. At
one point the conductor even offered Folds


. _ _ PHOTO av wunun warms l smrr

forming Arts in Louisville on Saturday

the baton.

As a way of thanking the fans after sev—
eral standing ovations. Folds came back out
for the encore to perform "The Luckiest."

I have to say. after reading a few (‘0 re»
views about his new album “Way to Norv
mal." and doing some research I was itot
holding my breath for an astounding con—
cert. but who was I kiddiiig'.‘ i mean seri-
ously‘. can you remember a time when Folds
pcrfomied a bad concert?

l definitely felt like the lucky one Satur-
day. Folds was hands down on his game.
and l believe the sold-out audience would
agree Folds was "f—ing aw esoittc."

Talking Heads' first single "Love
