06 Identity Thief

Released Fri, February 8th Unlimited funds have allowed Diana to live it up on the outskirts of Miami, where the queen of retail buys whatever strikes her fancy. There’s only one glitch: The ID she’s using to finance these sprees reads “Sandy Bigelow Patterson”... and it belongs to an accounts rep who lives halfway across the U.S. With only one week to hunt down the con artist before his world implodes, the real Sandy Bigelow Patterson heads south to confront the woman with an all-access pass to his life. And as he attempts to bribe, coax and wrangle her the 2,000 miles to Denver, one easy target will discover just how tough it is to get your name back.

THE BEACHAM 46 N. Orange Ave. 407.246.1419 Mon, February 4, 8pm, $25 - $28 The xx exist in a time and space of their own making. In 2009 the south London trio’s debut album ‘xx’, quietly made at night over the course of two years, bled steadily into the public consciousness to become shorthand for newly refined ideas of teenage desire and anxiety. Articulated with a maturity beyond their years, its hallmarks were restraint and ambiguity. In the age of the over-share, ‘xx’ was pop with its privacy settings on max.

THE SOCIAL 54 N. Orange Ave. 407.246.1419 Fri, February 15, 7pm, $19 - $23 By the time Florida rock band Further Seems Forever released its much-lauded debut album, “The Moon Is Down,” in 2001, its formative singer, Chris Carrabba, had already exited the group. Carrabba, who had joined the band shortly after its formation in 1998, appeared on their 1999 debut EP, “From The 27th State,” and spent the next few years on the road. But after collectively penning the tracks that would appear on “The Moon Is Down,” the band suffered a falling out. Carrabba agreed to record the disc, but would leave once it was finished. The following years yielded two more singers, two further albums, 2003’s “How To Start a Fire” and 2004’s “Hide Nothing,” and numerous lineup changes, and by 2005 Further Seems Forever had announced its hiatus.

JOHNNY DAMON Athlete • Philanthropist How long have you been in Orlando? Almost my whole life, moved here when I was about 5 years old. Claim to fame or title in life?  Great Dad. A one-liner or phrase that best describes you?  Just trying to enjoy life and get ready for the next adventure or challenge. 

STEPHANIE WOOD Visual Artist How long have you been in Orlando? I have been in Orlando off and on for 10years now. I lived in SoCal in between but came back here to Orlando a few years ago.

What qualities or traits do you have that help you do what you do? Hard work and consistency.   Who do you feel is the coolest person in Orlando?  There are a lot of cool people in Orlando, one of the great reasons to live here.

Claim to fame or title in life? I’d say I’m a bartender, my friends say I am a artist.

Why is Orlando a cool place to be? Sun, lakes, golf courses and people. Where do you go to escape?  It’s secret.. ;-)   If you were Mayor, what would you change about the city?  Just continue with the existing progress.    One thing you could never live without? Family...

For more information on the foundation, www.johnnydamonfoundation.org

TIM ARNOLD

A one-liner or phrase that best describes you? I’m not sure. I wouldn’t know how to describe myself. My friends think I am fun. I guess I am really dorky. I have no social life because of an upcoming ART SHOW at XL GALLERY. FEB 14th 8pm FREE.

Computer Programmer How long have you been in Orlando? 5 years. Came from West Palm and never looked back.. love it here!

What qualities or traits do you have that help you do what you do? I love making drinks and meeting people. I think it helps me network with my art career. If I didn’t meet all the people these past few years working as a bartender; I wouldn’t have as many people interested in getting any art from me. I think the BAR is a big reason for my art. Who do you feel is the coolest person in Orlando? Honestly, Caitlin BarryVanVoorhis is the coolest person on the damn planet. I not only have a blast with her, I love her like a family member, I respect her, and I learn from her. She is Freaking Awesome.

Claim to fame or title in life? Well, with all the U Could Finish stuff I got called “Zuckerberg” but before I had gotten more of a McGyver reputation. I’m always tinkering with something (most recently was modifying my AC to turn off when I am / my phone is 5 miles away to save on electricity). A one-liner or phrase that best describes you? “One who makes no mistakes makes nothing” - Giacomo Casanova What qualities or traits do you have that help you? Being hardheaded and not taking ‘No’ for an answer. If someone says you can’t pursue an idea, there’s always a way. But finding that path is a long way from following a GPS.

A goal you hope to reach in the next few years? I really want to do Art Basel; I know it will take a few bucks to pull it off and I want to do some really large scale pieces. I hope for my own single show gallery opening, but I’d jump in a group show if an opportunity came about.

Who do you feel is the coolest person in Orlando? Daniel Tosh. Minus the Brickleberry thing.

Why is Orlando a cool place to be? Orlando is a good spot for Art, I have been very lucky to show tons of spots. XL GALLERY is my favorite place to show. I am very Thankful for Todd Ulmer and Jordan Badran for always letting me paint the walls crazy colors and doing events here.

A goal you hope to reach in the next few years? To finally make it out to the OUC Half Marathon.

Why is Orlando a cool place to be? For me it’s that we’re on the cusp of an entrepreneurship explosion. So many resources are aligning for orlando to be a startup hub in the near future.We’ve got some of the brightest and best graduating in droves from right up the road, UCF’s impact on the area is yet to be truly felt.

Where do you go to escape? My fiance and I usually go on a trip every 6 months. Its usually between seeing our amazing friends in NYC or my best friend in Hawaii. As Mayor, what would you change about the city? I wish for more legal walls in orlando. We have amazing artist that should do big murals and give this city more character. If we had more street art it would improve this city. One thing you could never live without? This is a hard one. I would say clean water. Clean water (distilled).

A goal you hope to reach in the next few years?  Continue to grow my charitable foundation.

Where do you go to escape? Lake Eola, Cocoa beach, the roof of UCF’s Math & Physics Building... If you were Mayor, what would you change about the city? Mass transit. I know it’s a pipe dream, but even just supporting UCF’s efforts to run Knight-Lynx to downtown would be of great economic benefit, reduce drunk driving, and most importantly be a ton of fun. One thing you could never live without? Fresh music. Nothing is much better than discovering a new track that you really vibe with. (Hypem.com is my fix).

It’s big enough and small enough.  Every size and type of music venue you could want.  Close enough to New Smyrna Beach!  We’ve been immortalized (not really in a good way) in the incredible Broadway show “The Book Of Mormon”!!!   Where do you go to escape? NSB, baby!   As Mayor, what would you change about the city? I would get rid of that stupid, miniature Statue of Liberty on Orange and Magnolia near Lake Ivanhoe, and I would have a cool sculpture done by a local artist that captures the spirit of Florida.   One thing you could never live without? Besides my wife and kids?  Music.

Claim to fame or title in life? Outside of entertaining you fools each and everyday I’m the guy stopped the almost riot in front of Casey Anthony’s house with like 50 pizzas that were delievered during CNN’s live shot. A one-liner or phrase that best describes you?  “To Be The Man You Must Beat The Man...WOOOOOOO” -Ric Flair   What qualities or traits do you have that help do what you do?  I was born with the ability to tell a good story.  Also, from an early age I learned how to manipulate.  Somehow they both turned out to be a plus in my life.  Who knew?   Who do you feel is the coolest person in Orlando?  Sean and Rick from Axis Magazine of course.  Without these 2 guys, how are we supposed to know about the rest of us so-called cool types.

A goal in the next few years? Right now I’m working on scrubbing the stairwells in the downtown garages so   they don’t smell like hot urine. Why is Orlando a cool place?  On any given night / day there is something to do.  From the Hard Rock Live to the HOB to Velvet Sessions to the new Amway.    Where do you go to escape?   Under my girlfriend’s shirt.  It’s so safe there.  I’m surrounded by beautiful mountains and left to me and my thoughts.   If you were Mayor, what change?  Push to get a poker room in the metro.  I mean seriously people this is getting kind of stupid.  Most of the politicians that speak against it are in a back room house game playing poker anyway.   You could never live without?   Trail Mix. More specifically.. Dark Chocolate Expresso from Target.

MICHAEL O’DONNELL Sports Entertainment How long you been in Orlando? About 9 years.   Claim to fame or title in life? Former UCF point guard and captain.  Currently Asst Director of Golden Knights Club.   A phrase that best describes you? “Oh   no he di-int” What qualities do you have that help you do what you do? Now-a-days you have to be able to communicate and connect with people… it’s all about relationships when it comes to business.  Mental toughness seems to be neglected in today’s culture… and I hope to be known one day as a “servant-leader.”   Who do you feel is the coolest person in Orlando? My buddy Rob Starkman founder of Rock’Em Apparel.  That kid took a shot at his dream and hit dead center.  There were plenty of people who thought he was crazy,

www.aXismag.com

but now he has one of the fastest growing apparel companies in Central Florida.   A goal in the next few years? I would love to become an Associate Athletics Director at UCF as well as get picked for the   Amazing Race TV show. Why Orlando a cool place to be? Great food, tons of culture, more great food, and I am typing this outside on my laptop while it is supposedly “winter” time.  Give me sweat over sweaters any day   of the week. Where do you go to escape? The movies or the driving range.  There’s also nothing like taking your frustrations out on   the most frustrating game of all time. If you were Mayor? Make P.E. in public schools priority and not an afterthought.    You could never live without?  It’s a tie.. My fiancé and Junior Mints.

Music Business Entreprenur Claim to fame or title in life? “Rockstar Publicist” and Artist Manager. A one-liner or phrase that best describes you? “I Pan For Gold” …and trust me there is a lot of gravel! What qualities or traits do you have that help you do what you do? You know, I have always been that inquisitive dreamer. Always thinking there is more to people than meets the eye. In the music business, that is almost always the case. I like to think that I have a knack for identifying exceptional talent that have that something extra in their arsenal. Who do you feel is the coolest person in Orlando? As a supporter and advocate of Boys and Girls Club I must say that my initial response to this question was a man that did so much for Orlando that passed away in May. Gary Sain did so much for this city, both as the CEO of Visit Orlando and the president of Boys and Girls Clubs. A goal you hope to reach in the next few years? Every year I receive my invitation to The Grammy’s. Every year I turn it down. I want to go when I have a dog in the fight. It better be soon dammit.

Why is Orlando a cool place to be? First of all, who doesn’t love the weather? I can get anybody to fly in for a meeting! It really is the perfect place for me, and what I do. I can always go to Nashville, New York or Los Angeles for events. Where do you escape? On any given weekend afternoon, you will find my husband and I sitting outside at one of the fabulous restaurants on Park Avenue in Winter Park. In the evenings, it’s going to be a music venue like Backbooth,The Social , House of Blues or The Haven. When we’ve got a weekend or a week to escape, we love the Dominican Republic or Napa Valley. We visit Napa at least twice a year. If you were Mayor, what would you change about the city? Ideally, I would love to see a big bump in education initiatives. A community with an amazing school system attracts a demographic of overachievers. It would be fantastic to not only be known only as the number one family travel destination, but as a city with a world renowned educational system. One thing you could never live without? Live Music!

SOME OTHER CHEAP DATES...

Some people spend weeks and a lot of money planning their dates in anticipation for Valentine’s Day but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are plenty of ways to show your significant other how special and important they are without breaking the bank. Here are a few ideas of what to do if you want to have a romantic and special Valentine’s Day but don’t have the money for anything too extravagant. • Have a picnic- This is something that definitely doesn’t require an obscene amount of money and is something that anyone can enjoy. Just go to Publix and pick up some subs, some snacks, and something special for dessert and you’re set.Throwing in some candles and going to a park that is quieter is a good idea and makes for a more romantic evening. • Spend the day at the beach- The beach is a great place to go if you don’t want to spend too much. Grab some towels, some snacks, maybe a bit of tanning oil, and hit the road. A day at the beach is always something fun and the only thing you may have to pay for is parking! • Cook together- Dinner on Valentine’s Day can get expensive, so go on the internet and find a dish that you both enjoy, go grocery shopping together, and then cook! Cooking together also gives you some time to spend alone together and buying the ingredients definitely won’t be as expensive as going to a fancy restaurant for dinner. • Go to a fancy restaurant…for dessert- This way you get the best of both worlds! You are able to get dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant all while spending less money. Pick the fanciest restaurant you can find, get the most extravagant dessert on the menu, and you’ll still be under budget.

WHAT NOT TO DO...

Although Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a blissful day filled with love, this is also a day where some people can make some of the worst decisions of their lives. Here are some things to keep in mind when going about your Valentine’s Day. • DO NOT call your ex- Even if Valentine’s Day brings up some fond memories that the two of you shared, it is most likely not the right day to call them sobbing and hoping that they’ll take you back.You broke up for a reason and I’m sure you don’t want to deal with that all over again. So if it’s a choice between your couch or a date with your ex, be wise and choose the couch. • DO NOT break up with someone- Even if you’re in a relationship you’re not particularly happy with, stick it out another day. Don’t break up with someone on Valentine’s Day, even if you have been waiting to pull the plug on the relationship. Pretend that you’re sick so you don’t have to go out on a romantic excursion, just hold off one more day so you don’t have to make things even harder on the person you’re going to break up with. • DO NOT be a third wheel- Your best friend may have been trying to be nice and ask you to join her and her boyfriend on their date, but politely decline. Being a third wheel will make Valentine’s Day that much harder on you, you will definitely be better off sitting at home and having a movie marathon and gorging on some junk food. • DO NOT expect the world from your date- Valentine’s Day can be special, but it definitely isn’t the most special and romantic day in the world. Go with the flow and take everything as it comes because if you expect too much, I can almost guarantee that you will be disappointed and you’ll ruin the night for both you and your date. - Arielle Ozery

BREWSCHOOL...

KEEPING YOU HIP TO THE hops For the love of brew... and your VDay boo!

SHOW HER YOUR HEART WITH A PINT OF LOVE! Looking for a Valentine’s present for your beer loving boo that is also a plus for you? How about a beer with aphrodisiacs in it? One that I would suggest is the Flying Dog Pearl Necklace Oyster Stout… what a play on words, right guys? This 5.5% ABV oyster stout from Maryland drinks like a traditional stout- roasty, malty, with a butter-toffee finish, add in the oyster, a light flavored creature, and you get a lovely tasting beer. Another beer that has oysters in it is the Abita Imperial Oyster Stout out of Louisiana. The salt from the oysters in this beer give it a more intense and aroma and mouthfeel. Pair this beer grilled steaks, red meats, or a sweet dessert! Want to get your special lady a beer that she’s sure to love? Try Starr Hill’s The Love. The bottle itself will show your girl that you put some thought into her Valentine’s Day present.This unfiltered wheat beer, also known as a Hefeweizen, from Virginia has an extremely light body and flavored with hints of banana and clove. Sure to please any girl, whether she’s a beer connoisseur or a beer novice. Looking to pair some beers with your chocolates? When pairing beers with chocolates, rich malty beers are your best bet. Some that I’d recommend are: Ayinger Celebrator, a dopplebock from Germany; Dogfish Head’sTheobrama, a beer brewed with co-

coa powder and cocoa nibs, as well as honey and chilies; and Young’s Double Chocolate Stout from England. If you want to change up the rich malty beers when pairing your chocolates, try a fruity lambic like St. Louis Framboise. This raspberry lambic gives just enough raspberry punch to even out your super sweet chocolates. Want to cook a Valentine’s Day meal for your significant other? Pork ribs with a dark beer, I’d suggest Guinness, will surely be the fix for your sweetie. Here’s the ingredients: 1 package pork ribs, 2 12oz beer (any dark beer will do), 1 bay leaf, 4 garlic cloves, salt & pepper to taste, 1 teaspoon seasoned salt, 1 onion roughly chopped, barbeque sauce and steak spice. Preheat oven to 225°F. Cut up rib slab into individual ribs. Put ribs in roaster, add the rest of ingredients (excluding BBQ sauce and steak spice). Slow roast for 2 to 3 hours. Remove ribs, brush with BBQ sauce. Sprinkle with steak spice. The meat will literally fall off the bones! Bon’ Appétit!

OPHY S O L I H P E H T Y OF MIXOLOG

DOWNTOWN

MikeY G

MIKE GLEASON @ THE WOODS 54 N. ORANGE AVENUE (located above The Lodge) aXis: So, the mixology craze is hitting a fever pitch in Downtown Orlando. When someone asks you, ‘what is mixology’ how do you describe it, and your overall philosophy on a great drink?? Mike: That’s a great question. I think way too many people are getting more advanced with their drinks and losing track of what is truly important. Extremely obscure ingredients and outlandish techniques don’t make a well balanced drink. Silly mustaches and funny little hats don’t either.A great cocktail should be dynamic in its taste and smell.You should be able to notice alcohol, but not destroy your taste buds after one sip.Also, any great drink won’t taste as good if it isn’t served with a smile. Enough with the smug attitude already.You’re hosting a party, not inventing a cure for cancer in a Collins glass. aXis: When looking for a new flavor or drink, what are your goals, based on that philosophy and the clientele at The Woods? Mike: I’ve tried to make our drink menu very approachable for people. I’m always looking for fresh ingredients to bring in and mess around with. People certainly don’t seem to mind being guinea pigs. To me, very fresh fruits, herbs, and even vegetables pack so much natural flavor you don’t need twenty more ingredients in a drink. A few variables that help enhance those natural flavors instead of homogenizing them is the key. aXis: What seems to be the most popular vodka based drink at The Woods? Mike: Probably our Watermelon Citrus Martini. Fresh muddled watermelon makes a great drink and squeezed lemon juice gives it a nice little pinch. Really refreshing. Dangerous.

aXis: How about whiskey? Mike: The Pony Express. Highwest Campfire is a really smoky whiskey.A touch of Aperol and some house made peach puree make it really interesting and delicious. aXis: For the novice, any suggestions for someone sitting on the other side of the bar, when trying to order ‘to impress’ a date? Mike: Yeah, talk to the bartender. We love to custom make drinks for people based on their preference.There’s actually a “Bartender’s Choice” selection on the menu at The Woods in order to bolster a discussion. It’s a fun process. Figure out a base spirit, whether you’d like something sweet, sour, herbaceous, or pretty dry and let us make something custom. And if you prefer Scotch on the rocks there’s nothing wrong with that either. aXis: How about that novice looking to have a few ‘healthy’ drinks this new year? Mike: Yeah, go to Planet Smoothie. Our stuff is loaded with booze. aXis: Any other location in town, and/or bartender you like to patronize for a drink? Mike: Zach at Prato and I are co-founders of the Central Florida chapter of the United States bartenders guild. That guy makes some seriously great cocktails. And he smells like angel’s pubes. aXis: What’s coming up this month in Feb that’s new on the menu? Mike: We will be rolling out a bunch of champagne cocktails in time for Valentine’s Day that should help get people naked with other people.

“Healthy drink? Ya, go to Planet Smoothie, our stuff is loaded with booze!”

WHY ORLANDO IS VITAL TO THE

INTERNATIONAL DANCE MOVEMENT By: Mandi Paige EDM, of course I’m speaking of the Electronic Dance Music movement. This movement originated in the U.K and gained momentum during the 1980’s with the warehouse and rave style’s both part of the acid house movement partially deriving from the Chicago scene. Transitioning into the early 90’s sparked a variety of sub-genres to take root including: freestyle, electro, industrial, house and techno. The mid 90’s shot a wave of U.K dance acts through the states igniting an American Electranica Revolution with acts such as The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim and Underworld Associated. With the new millennium we welcomed the more mainstream appeal of hybrid styles. Today we have an ever evolving plethora of EDM sub-genres and ever expanding style’s with a definite advancement from the obscurity of EDM radio play as the underground development steals more mainstream radio time with artist like Deadmau5, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia and La Roux. Even pop has gone to the electric side with the recent remix by The M Machine of Bruno Mars “Locked Out Of Heaven.” You can’t help but notice the recent re-fuel of the Orlando Electric scene, especially with the international dance music festival ‘Daisy Carnival’ touching down in O-town for the first time in 2011. So for the most current EDM activity we have converged three of the area’s leaders’s to really illuminate this dynamic genre and the talented artist that fill it. Jeff Kenney with Donnie Disco Presents and on the team that handles Electric Daisy Worldwide. Dave Marren, manager of Club Firestone which really was the first frontier of EDM in Florida. And DJ M-Squared, a Red Bull Thre3Style National Champ which the open format/ party rock DJ competition. How would you say EDM festival culture has changed over the past decade? Kenney: College kids have embraced EDM. They have brought a whole new group of music fans and several new social clicks with them. DJ M-Squared: Over the past decade the EDM festival culture has been constantly evolving. Artists are collaborating live with vocalists and instrumentalists as part of their shows. The lighting, effects and stage presentations are always enhancing to give the audience more of an experience joined with the music. For so many year’s this genre has been noted as more of an underground style, but with the gaining momentum in the past decade do you still believe that is an appropriate description of the genre and sound? Kenney: Def. People whine and moan about dance music selling out, but the truth is it is just recovering from almost being obliterated in the late 90’s. Tiesto is not selling as many tickets as U2 or Justin Beiber! Huge companies like Insomniac and SFX have almost zero sponsorship and everything is paid for privately. Marren: Electronic dance music is just too diverse to be explained that way. You’ll see some very popular house and dubstep tracks weave their way into top40 radio hits, video games and even commercials. Meanwhile, musicians are continually experimenting and new sub-genres will pop up from collaborations via the internet and live events in a much more “underground” fashion.

With the amount of software programs/synths and new technical infrastructures for music production being readily available, what makes an artist stand out in this modern industry to you? Kenney: Technology has let the DJs job evolve from the technical aspect of pitch and mixing tempos to unlimited possibilities. There are so many options for these artists to create their own style. Look at the CDJ2000.. it is simply amazing what those things are capable of now. In the studio this is just as true. Forget complicated midi set ups.. a nice computer is all you need these days. These are all tools. Less time fiddling with the technicalities of your job leaves you with more time to be creative. DJ M-Squared: I think the new music technology being readily available can be a good and bad thing depending on the intentions of the artist. When I create, my goal is to make music that I love that will connect with people on an emotional level. I feel that when an artist focuses on creating beautiful work, they automatically stand out. It’s not about the machine it’s about the mind behind that machine. Jeff, How have your previous event’s evolved over the year’s? And What big event’s can we anticipate in the coming months of 2013? Kenney: We never stop learning. These days i’m focusing on customer service. Better ticketing systems, faster doors, guest service, there are many things that we are trying to improve on so our customers experience the best. I am always looking for the weaknesses in our locations and how to improve them. Well of course everyone will be waiting for EDC 2013. We will set records this year... again. Besides that.. well I can’t really talk about it.. but there are some really exciting new things coming this way. Firestone’s 1 year anniversary of re-establishing the Thursday Night’s & weekends around EDM, how have you seen the scene grow/change over the past year? Marren: The scene has exploded over the last year. 1 year ago Firestone and Alliance Events built a new Thursday night, called IGNITION based on the passion we saw in the community. The idea was to create a festival of 4 rooms with different genres, each with a lineup of talented DJ’s and producers. Now, many of these undiscovered artists are able to flourish all over town. The popularity has also called for a surge of international talent on a very regular basis. On February 7th, for IGNITION’s 1 year anniversary, we decided to take it to the next level. Instead of 4 stages, we’re hosting 8. We’ll be combining international producers, DJ’s, live bands, record labels, local food trucks, original art, craft beer brewers, hip-hop showcases and 10+ non-profit sponsors. IGNITION began from the community- so on the anniversary, we’re creating a larger foundation for Orlando’s creative scene to flourish even farther. This event will be called the FOUNDATION PROJECT. Firestone was really a foundation for bringing EDM to Florida showcasing artist like Crystal Method, Keoki and so many other’s playing here before N.Y.C and L.A, How did Firestone first want to direct the EDM crowd to Florida? Marren: First? We’d have to ask some of the pioneers of the 90’s house and breakbeat scenes. DJ Icey, Kimball Collins, Dave Cannalte, Glyn Morgan, and far more than I know how to properly credit- also, I’m sure the laws allowing bars to stay open all night helped a great deal. This time around, me and my two music-loving friends, Alex Wood and Vernon Foster, wanted to establish a creative outlet for these new and innovative genres while pushing our boundaries with event production. The popularity and diversity of dance music as a whole was on the verge of exploding... we just saw this as an opportunity to do something we love to do. Evolution in the electronic scene during the last decade of ‘industrial’ music only, you will find a good dozen sub-genres that have evolved, how do you feel the scene will continue to change and evolve over the next 5yrs? Marren: As technology and communication continue to develop, people can explore their creativity and collaborate more easily every few months. Within 5 yrs, I’d love to see the production possibilities of digital music combine with the full tonal control that a musician gets from the touch of a live instrument... imagine if Jimi Hendrix had access to the tools we have today! Red Bull Thre3Style gives highly skilled DJs a global platform to showcase their skills, how do you feel this competition has changed the scene here in Central Florida? DJ M-Squared: After winning the 2010 Red Bull Thre3style National Championship, I’ve had the privilege of performing all around the world. Red Bull Thre3style is a very well rounded competition that really highlights the open format style of DJ’ing. Red Bull Thre3style has positively impacted the scene here in Central Florida by exposing a broader audience to this open format style of DJ’ing; Blending different genres, using showmanship, and being technically proficient all while giving the audience a great party. On marketing this craft to the masses how would you say the process differs from the more mainstream sound’s? DJ M-Squared: I actually feel that the marketing process for this craft is becoming more aligned with the way mainstream sounds are marketed. DJ’s are now being marketed just like major artists. From headlining arenas, to having record deals, endorsements, television etc.. There is no limit to where the DJ culture can take things. Your ‘must-hear’ up and coming artist in this genre? Kenney: I have my eye on a couple up and coming artists who you will see playing here soon. I think we will see trance strike back this year - so watch for Myon and Shane and the Ajunabeats guys...Trap is being pushed hard and we are going to play around with that for a little bit. Marren: Madeon. This young kid from Paris has put together some of the most intricate and melodic tracks I’ve ever heard, but I’m a nerd for layered harmonies. I’d say come out to IGNITION, experience a little bit of everything, and see what you like best!

Each year, I have to upend my life for roughly one month when it comes time to select the Coolest People in Orlando, because everyone comes out of the woodworks to beg me for consideration in choosing this incredibly prestigious title. For instance, just the other day, Dwight Howard sent me an email offering to re-sign with the Magic if I would make sure that he makes the list again. Alas, I had to break the news to him that his previous appearance on this list had actually been rescinded. Not only had it been rescinded, but we also passed it around to homeless people to cough on. Screw that guy. Where was I? Ah yes, this year’s Coolest People in Orlando. As the lone recipient of the Lifetime Achievement in Orlando Coolness Award, I often have to make the toughest decisions of all, and this time around I decided to take myself completely out of the process. Why should I have to keep breaking it to guys like Joe Biden or Channing Tatum that they’re just not cool enough to make this list? I’ll leave that to the suckers in charge. Instead, I decided to take a look into the future to pick the leading candidates for the Coolest People in Orlando 20 years from now. To be fair to so many people that aren’t even born yet, I’m also excluding the young heirs to the Finnhenry’s empire, because those kids already have a bar named after them and I don’t. So they’re on their own. As for everyone else, well, prepare to feel like nerds…

2031 – J.J. Redick Jr. full name Jamal Jerome Jebedi-

ah Jesper Redick Jr. – will make be named among the Coolest People in Orlando when he commits to UCF on a basketball scholarship. By this time, UCF is a major hoops school, because the football program, now nearing its 30th year under the iron dictatorial law of George O’Leary, who is also part cyborg, will have not had more than 4 wins in a season since 2015.

2037 After finally passing away at the age of 119 just several weeks earlier, Lee (the homeless dude who sleeps outside of Cleo’s) is finally named to our list. It is a bittersweet day, namely because many of the people who knew him best died years before he did in the Great Bar Wars of 2022. Amazingly, the staff of Gibson assumed control of the entire city’s alcohol supply after hiding in a bathroom while the other bars destroyed each other. 2102

Two robot wars have made most of North America an apocalyptic wasteland, but thanks to decades of horrible environmental policies and meth-fueled inbreeding, Florida has been untouched. But where there are robot attacks, there must be lawyers, so John Morgan’s great-great-grandson, Chip or Chet or something like that, will be party animal numero uno.

2264 Thanks to the Illuminati’s secret plan to maintain a society long past any Armageddon-type scenarios, our nation’s smartest scientists are kept in a self-sustaining underground society for 200 years. Unfortunately, none of those scientists are from Florida. In fact, in all apocalyptic scenarios, nobody from Florida was or ever will be selected for preservation. There is no list in 2264. 2355

With society fully re-established under a new reign that celebrates science and shuns religion and war, everybody is officially declared cool. It also helps that the scientists were able to make sure that every female baby was artificially altered to grow up to look like Kate Upton. It really is the height of humanity.

2401 Sadly, it doesn’t take very long for the Kate Upton clones to realize that they are way too hot for all of those nerdy scientists, so they all pack up and establish a new colony on another continent. The scientists ask if they can have a phone number or something, but the women only provide 6 numbers and say something about their boyfriends getting out of prison. The Coolest People in Orlando this year are actually a bunch of dorks.

2479 The publishers of aXis actually use a list from a few hundred years earlier because they were too hungover to call Space Overlord Zexon-66’s office to see if he had any time in between in his interview for Time’s Man of the Year and Tiger Beat’s Super 2 Hottie of ’79. They are executed by a squadron of galactic bounty hunters for their crimes. 25??

Official time records stop at some point around this issue, as all life has become glowing balls of light thanks to a nuclear pulsar that consumed the entire galaxy, thus ruining a pretty awesome Florida Music Festival lineup. Bunch of dicks up there in outer space.
