Summer hell turns
to fall fun with

Wunder-writer Harrison spills
into Shaman Drum tonight



By Jennifer Fogel
Daily TV/New Media Editor
The weather outside is getting
colder and the students have once
again returned to campus. This can
only mean one thing: Summer rerun
hell is finally over with. It's time to
lak out the VCR and getting ready
for the network premieres that
include all of your returning
favorites and at least thirty new
While the season doesn't exactly
start until October, getting a jump on
the main networks, the small time
WB and UPN have decided to go
head to head with the Olympics.
Thus, while CBS runs reruns of
" rvivor" you can be catching WB
orites like "Buffy" and "Popular."
The WB is also hoping to break out
of its teen dramedy rut with three
new comedies including the
"Beverly Hills, 90210" satire
"Grosse Pointe." Meanwhile, UPN
(the current home of the WWF) pre-
mieres an African-American "Sex in
the City" titled "Girlfriends," which
stars Diana Ross' daughter. Although
t rlfriends" is one of the few shows
onthe network to be female-orient-
ed, UPN's other two new shows
revert back to its main viewers
(teenage boys) with the debut of two
new action/science fiction shows:
"Freedom," a made-for-TV "Matrix,"
and "Level Nine," a cop show for the
Computer Age.
Beginning in October, the Big
Three come out in full force. On
AC, viewers can look forward to
e "Who Wants to be a
Millionaire," but for those looking
for a change of pace; try Andre
Braugher ("Homicide") in the med-
ical drama "Gideon's Crossing,"
which will premiere uninterrupted.
Last winter's number one network,
ABC will also try out three new
comedies (do they really need any
more?) with big name stars. Geena

Davis will star in (big surprise) "The
Geena Davis Show," while Gabriel
Byrne ("The Usual Suspects") will
try his hand at comedy in "Madigan
Men." "Madigan Men" is one of the
shows that will make up the new
TGIF lineup along with the paranoid
and neurotic "The Trouble With
After a record-breaking summer,
CBS debuts four new comedies
including Bette Midler's aptly named
"Bette" (a critics' favorite) and
Christine Baranski's ("Cybil")
"Welcome to New York." Hoping to
recover from a serious depletion in
dramas, the network puts forth an
updated "The Fugitive," the political
police drama "The District" starring
Craig T. Nelson and "C.S.I" about a
Las Vegas forensics team.
NBC, still reeling from being
number three, hopes that comedians
David Allen Grier ("In Living
Color") in "DAG" and "Seinfeld's"
Michael Richards will boost ratings,
but better prospects lie in the net-
works three new dramas. A New
Yorker returns to his home in
Stuckyville to buy a bowling alley in
"ED," while a New York columnist
works to right wrongs in "Deadline."
However, these two could not com-
pare to Aaron Spelling's latest,
"Titans" that will fill anyone's need
for a weekly dose of love, lust and
guilty pleasure.
On Fox, otherwise known as the
David E. Kelly network, Kelly will
try his hand at another series
"Boston Public" about the trials of
teaching. The home of the "X-Files"
will also premiere two new science
fiction shows, James Cameron's
"Dark Angel" and the paranormal
"Freakylinks." Fox will also try its
hand at a male "Sex in the City" on
Wall Street in "The Street."
Alas, as all of these new shows vie
for ratings and await the deadly ring
of cancellation, the shows that are
returning this fall are infusing some

Sabrina Ward Harrison made her first
book at the age of 21. She made it out of
nai 11 and pictures and odds and ends and
quotesand feelings. This is the journal of
Selective artist.

Tonight at 8

Harrison didn't
set out to publish
anything. She
took a class her
freshman year of
college titled Life
Stories, which
inspired her to
start journaling. It
was a welcome
outlet for her, as
she was in a pre-
carious stage of
her life. "People
think those are the
greatest years of
"but it's the time

perhaps because her feelings were get-
ting interesting.
Harrison even called her favorite
author, Sark, one day and left a message
on her helpline to tell her that she felt
Sark returned the call, impressed with
the girl's raw honesty. When they met,
Sark took one look at Harrison'sjournals
and pushed her to go public with them.
Harrison was embarrassed at first, but
she then thought, "If I could be of help, I
should get over myself and get it out
So she did, and it's wonderful. It is col-
orful and messy, filled with beautiful
drawings, paint and photographs. She
attempts to make self-portraits, constant-
ly "becoming herself, or trying. Her
thoughts range from "Oh...the worries
of thighs,"to "Sometimes I am unable to
buckle down my euphoria." This book is
a window into her mind and what's
more, a window into every woman's
mind. Harrison says that though it is a
journal of a 21-year-old and she intend-
ed it to inspire girls, middle-aged women
have been some of her biggest support-
ers. As if they are trying to remember
themselves when they were just discov-
ering who that was.

thinking that it would be the way to have
a career and still be an artist. But it was
her journals that were getting interesting,

Harrison reads at Shaman Drum tonight.
The beginning of "Spilling Open"
concentrates more on her insecurities,
and it ends, she said, "with a sense of
faith in who I am." But it is not that sim-
ple. There are excerpts of happiness in
the beginning and bouts of insecurity at
the end. It is like life. There isn't ever a
time when uncertainty ends. She por-
trays reality, but with an artistic and
inspirational slant.
What's more, riddled throughout the
text are beautiful quotes from Leonard
Cohen, Walt Whitman and Robert Frost,
to name just a few. These are important
people in Harrison's life - she "wouldl-
n't know what to do without them'.
Her father, however, has been the
most inspirational person in her life. He
picked up his life and his family and
moved them from Canada to Southern
California to make films on a whim. "He
was always rebuilding himself," she said.
So what is Harrison going to do now
that she has gotten her remarkable jour-
nal published? Since she claims her pas-
sion to be "spilling and scribbling," she
is working on another book and making
"Sabrina skirts," the first of which she is
displaying while on tour. In addition, she
is teaching a class in Oakland, Calif., on
Becoming Yourself, which is amixture of
big, blank journals, prompting ques-
tions, ink, varnish, wallpaper, Ani

Food for Thought
Were Blacks Over-
Represented in Vietnam?
According to Department of
Defense data, of the 58,152
killed in Vietnam, 7,262 or
12.49%, were Blacks. The
9970 census abstract shows
that 12% of the US popula-
tion, but 15% of the draft-age
population, was Black (At the
time, African-Americans pre-
ferred the term 'Black').
