A guide to new local CD’s and Books///////////////////////////////

T

allahassee is on the move! With every new Spring comes a new

slew of offerings from local musicians, artists and authors of every stripe, and this year is no different. Maybe it’s all the time they spend couped up at home during the sub-zero winters, sipping brandy by the fireplace on snow days off from work. Or all of that Russian Vodka, mixed with cabin fever, blizzard-emergency reserves of Kraft dinner, and the endless marathons of online Scrabble. We don’t know, but here are but a few of the new creations that came our way. These creators have done their part, divining cultural somethings out of metaphorical nothings. And we have done our part, telling you fine Villagers about them and recording them for all of history. Now it’s your turn -- check them out. And if something picques your interest, support a starving artist and buy one of these local treasures. (When is your neice’s birthday again?) / CapitalCityVillager/ May 25, 2012/ vol. 1 iss. 7

Independently published by Ink Press right here in Tallahassee, Espresso Ink welcomes submissions that challenge conventional artistic doctrine, and anyone is free to submit.

Children’s Book: LOOKING FOR BUTTERFLIES By Marlene Baldeweg-Rau There is no cloud in the sky, the air tastes fresh and crisp, and as you hike you hear the sounds of birds in the distance -- in combination with the crunching of your feet on sticks and leaves. You are walking under a scattered pine canopy one second, and the next under a variety of hydric hammocks. It is here, at one of the oldest refuges in America, where you can explore estuaries of seven North Florida rivers, islands, tidal creeks, coastal marshes, and a lighthouse. And local artist -- and now writer -- Honey Hilliard has chosen the St. Marks Refuge as the setting for her new children's book, Looking for Butterflies. In it, two little girls -- Autumn and Andie -- take the reader on a journey through nature in search of butterflies and end up discovering the eclectic wildlife that the St. Marks Refuge has to offer. “It is a little, simple message of sweetness,” the author said. Hilliard began her collegiate journey at Florida State University at the age of 17 on an academic scholarship and graduated with an art degree at the age of 20. She went on to become an illustrator and designer for the State of Florida, where she created numerous pieces about agriculture and endangered wildlife. Hilliard also designed and illustrated a Florida's Bird Identification poster to help monitor endangered species. “I got a lot of satisfaction when doing that project and it was for a good cause. I have always wanted to illustrate more wildlife,” Hilliard said. “Then my daughter was born and she has always been my favorite model and subject.” (The characters in her book are modeled after her daughter and her friend.) Hilliard has one simple message for children: “Play as in exercise, art as in being creative somehow and being an expressive individual, and talk by having fellowship and communicating with others.”

And through the book, she weaves into that message her deep appreciation for nature -- which she attributes to her Native American roots. (Her mother's great-grandmother was Muscogee/Creek Indian, a tribe native to the southeastern United States.) To that end, Looking for Butterflies contains an index of 11 animals that describes their special meanings and symbolism. The book is also interactive -- many images are uncolored, and illustrated to blend well with color pencils, and idea inspired by her granmother’s request several years ago for a home made coloring book. (The book is also published on paper that holds pigment easily, and allows the colors to pop and remain vivid.) She hopes the reader will play with the book and put their own spin on things. In addition to her new publishing venture and motherhood, Hilliard also operates a custom design and art business called HH Endeavors. Some of her past works can be viewed at www.HoneyHilliard.com. Hilliard will be promoting Looking For Butterflies on Friday, June 1 at the Right On! Art Gallery in Railroad Square (during the monthly First Friday block party.) This is part of a show entitled “Art You Kidding?” that the gallery is hosting that will feature prominent local artists and works that are available for under $50. Other participants include Laura Nicole Floyd (of Painting With A Twist), Carly Sinnadurai (of The Sharing Tree), Leslee Horner (collage artist), Julia Skinner (calligraphy-inspired paintings), Tony Demaria (of Right On! Gallery), and mythic-punk artists MANDEM.

You can order Looking for Butterflies online ($12.95) at LookingForButterflies.com in hardcover or paperback.

Healthy Cooking: Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes By Marlene Baldeweg-Rau It’s bathing suit season again, and no, we are not advertising that you should start eating Yoplait Light Yogurt or start listening to Sha Na Na again (“She wore an...,” you know the rest.). But it's hard to not get distracted with how we look and feel in our favorite bathing suits. And a new e-cookbook by a local author offers a secret (actually, not a secret at all) way to “help you get the body you want” and improve your health. It’s called Real Food. This means eating food that has nutrients in each serving, food that is not processed or packaged in a can, and eating locally and seasonally. That could be a little overwhelming, but Stephanie Brandt Cornais — a local businesswoman and operator of the successful blog MamaAndBabyLove. com -- has just published Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes: From Your Freezer to Your Family to offer a few pointers. On top of an impressive blog and e-

cookbook, Cornais is also a licensed massage therapist, certified itsy bitsy yoga facilitator, certified infant massage instructor, and certified doula. Her blog shows the many passions and interests Cornais has in her life, and one of them is caring about nutrition and eating healthy. The recipes in her e-cookbook use Real Food ingredients and give you a method of assembling and freezing the ingredients, and then throwing them into the slow cooker and walking away until dinner time. And better yet, the book is meant to be used by anyone -- the constant traveler, the cooking-challenged, the concerned provider. The book includes useful information about Real Food, 20 delicious and homemade recipes, grocery lists, nutrition info, and even labels that you can print out and place on your freezer bags.

LOCAL CD: Zach Bartholomew Trio’s Debut CD By Marlene Baldeweg-Rau Remember being introduced to three talented musicians asking for help to fund their debut album a couple months ago? The jazz kings of Tallahassee? The Zach Bartholomew Trio? Well folks, three years after officially forming in 2009, the time has finally arrived for the release of Zach Bartholomew Trio's debut studio album, Out of This Town. FSU alum pianist Zach Bartholomew, drummer Miles Bozeman and bassist Brandon Robertson join forces to create an album that pushes the boundaries of the jazz genre. It is the combination of each musician's

/ CapitalCityVillager/ May 25, 2012/ vol. 1 iss. 7

different personality, style, technique and background that forms a truly unique, original sound and musical identity. The Zach Bartholomew Trio will be having their CD release party on Friday, June 1 at the Mockingbird Cafe at 7pm. Come show your support and listen to music that would have American jazz pianist Marcus Roberts tapping his foot. Not only will the Trio be playing all original material, but they also want to give back to all of their fans that donated to their Kickstarter campaign by giving away prizes and rewards. If that isn't enough, there will also be a slide show playing pictures from the album

photo shoot, showing a documentary for the Out of This Town album, and a raffle at the door. Not only will you experience an evening filled with jazz music that will surely hit your soul, but you may win a prize or two. You do not have to be a jazz connoisseur or know the difference between a major and minor scale to enjoy the musical creations of the Zach Bartholomew Trio. Come see what three years of performing, rehearsing, studying and working on music together has created. You won't be disappointed.

ZBT will be hosting a CD-release party on Friday, June at Mockingbord Cafe.


Local CD: ARTIST ROYCE LOVETT

Royce Hall performing at the Villager WTF? Revue on May 17. (Photo by Great Productions.) By Tracy Horenbein The first time I heard Royce Lovett's music I had serious déjà vu. I was listening to his 2011 sophomore album, Acoustic Incentive, and remembered having a similar emotional response to an album that was released in 1989. The album was Lenny Kravitz's debut, Let Love Rule. Like Lovett, Kravitz was by no means a rock star yet. He was just a dude in love with Lisa Bonet who also had a passion for music. It wasn't so much that the Royce Lovett album sounded like the Lenny Kravitz album. It was the emotion. One of the coolest experiences in music is getting to hear artists when they are young and hungry to create. Lovett is definitely riding a creative wave. He's releasing his 3rd album, My Hopeless Romance, on June 1. The good news is that you're all invited. Not just invited to the CD release show, but also invited to join him on his musical quest to uplift the people. The album's title is, in part, a testament to a culture that some believe to be dead: classic hip hop.

"I'm hopelessly in love with hip hop," said Lovett. "I really wish that the lifestyle and culture would come back to when it was good and positive. I miss that." Me too. And we're not alone. The rapper Common (a former Florida A&M student, like Lovett) was feeling the pain back in 1994 when he released his now classic song "I Used to Love H.E.R." The song was a brilliant metaphoric ode to conscious hip hop and the slow death that she was dying. So, here we are, 18 years later and people are still tore up about a genre that got run over by a big corporate SUV with spinners on its way to the club. According to every commercial on television, you could take a pill for the pain, or you could just listen to Royce Lovett's music and ease the pain without all those nasty side effects. The offer is clearly stated on Lovett's website: "I write for those that know, and I write to those that don't." If you know, then cool. If you don't know, you might learn something. Just imagine a hip hop version of Dune. He who controls the knowledge controls the uni-

verse. Lovett is definitely in the driver's seat of his musical career, but not without obstacles. He's had to fight off the pressure to assimilate into the mainstream. "This is my third album," he said. "Every year I learn more and more about the business side of what I do. It really sucks. You don't get to be yourself. People tell you to only do Top 40 and write three-minute songs. Music is what I want to do for a living, but at the same time there is an artistry to how you do it." Upon listening to Lovett's music, one is reminded of similar artists who also understood such artistry. You get everything from Bob Marley to Richie Havens with a sick MC and a dude who can really sing mixed together. For a guy who really didn't care about commercial music, something very interesting evolved out of Lovett's sound. His music started appealing to a larger audience. It's strange how when you don't get overly preoccupied with something, it just happens organically. When you listen to My Hopeless Romance, you hear music that people are going to love in the barbershop or the coffee shop. "When we looked at the final album, we saw rock songs, and reggae songs, and hip hop songs," said Lovett. "It’s a mix of everything. I have so many influences, you’re gonna hear Prince and Ben Harper. This album is my soul in a package.” Recorded with producer J. De La Cruz at JMX Studio in Crawfordville, the album is the result of six months of hard work. Lovett is currently working on setting up a tour of college campuses to support the album. He would also like to return to France, where his music was previously well received. "If what makes you happy is making music that not everyone will pay for, then I think you should do that," said Lovett. "That's what the new album is talking about."

The album will be available for download on iTunes, Amazon, Bandcamp and CD Baby. You can also pick up a physical copy at Video 21 on 1449 E. Lafayette Street.

Literature: APALACHEE REVIEW Cupcake Love

By Stacey Bosch Apalachee Review is a bi-annual literary journal published locally by Apalachee Press, a nonprofit corporation. Stories and poems from this journal have been included in the notable Pushcart Prize series, which is an American literary prize by Pushcart Press that honors the best “poetry, short fiction, and essays” published in the small presses over the previous year. Founded in 1971, the Apalachee Review has 62 issues under it’s belt and is currently putting together issue 62 which will be “general and un-themed” so writers are encouraged to submit their best work for consideration. The content is selected and edited by members of the Review’s editorial board, lead by Chief Editor Michael Trammell, a poet and research associate at Florida State University. And its fiction editor is Mary Jane Ryals, the 2008 Poet Laureate of the Big Bend of Florida, and also a research associate at Florida State University. The Apalachee Review is a member of many councils including the council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) and The Academy of American Poets.

Information regarding subscriptions and upcoming issues can be found at their website at apalacheereview.org.

By Francine Witte Apalachsee Review, Issue 62, Page 28 It’s late and you are hungry. Fire in a woodshed. You tear open the cupboards, and there they are — your boyfriend’s cupcakes. Oh sure, you promised to be better about these things. Yes, honey, you told him straight-faced. I won’t touch anything that’s yours. You didn’t mean it to be sexual, but somehow it went that way. You started noticing him on the internet more. You stopped asking him why. So admit it. Food is your boyfriend. Food will stick its hands down your pants any time you want. You try to shush the cellophane, pull it back slow as possible. The way you might if you were a stripper. If your boyfriend thought you looked as good as a stripper. You sniff the delicious icing, the squiggle on the chocolate. Halfway through and you’re already eyeing the other one. You realize that this is how your boyfriend has been feeling all along. You finish your cupcake. You decide to throw the other one in the garbage and try to be happy with the one you just had. As you watch the cupcake slide into the trash bag, you want to ask it if you can still be friends

The Villager WTF? Revue on May 17 1,000 thanks to everyone who help us form a capacity crowd at our inaugural Capital City Villager WTF? Revue on May 17. The event was a smashing success. While we would like to thank everyone who participated, pitched in, and played along, it would be impossible to do so without leaving many people out. And so instead, we present you -- in truly self-promotional fashion -- with this snapshot of WTF glory... to rekindle fond memories of those who attended, to provide glory to those who braved the stage, and hopefully to entice everyone to our next event:

THURSDAY, JUNE 28!

An extra special thank you to Kim Mcshane, the hostess with the mostest talents at filling, stretching, and entertaining when an iPod goes missing. Also, to All Saints Hop Yard for sponsoring us (and helping Villager raise some dough.) And not any less, to Great Productions, for videoing and photographing. Do stop by our website and view the awesome music video!

Stamping Out Hunger I recently had the privilege of volunteering for America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend during the “Stamp Out Hunger” food drive. This is the major food drive where the postal carriers collected food that community members left at their mailboxes to help feed our hungry neighbors. I just have to say what a moving experience this was. To think about just how many individuals were involved in small ways is astounding. To see the end result is even more so. From all of the people who took the time and spent the money to get the food and set it out at their mailboxes, to the AMAZING postal carriers who collected it, to the volunteers who worked so incredibly hard… a fantastic effort was put forth. The culmination of all of this effort was an incredible amount of food collected to help feed our neighbors in need.

It was a hot day. The postal carriers, whose job is already extremely difficult, worked even harder than usual to bring the collected food back to the post offices. Volunteers sweated and lifted and sorted and wore themselves out for hours to keep up with the influx of canned goods. The staff at America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend worked as hard as they always do to fulfill their lofty mission. This collective effort on the part of so many deserves recognition and applause! I hope to be back at it next year, and that I get to work with some of the same team members at the Centerville Post Office. They were all extraordinary, and so appreciated! I’m certain that I speak for many struggling families when I say thanks, Tallahassee! Julia M.

PUBLISHER’S NOTE:

A special welcome this week to our new gang of extremely talented interns for the summer: Marlene BaldewegRau, Stacey Bosch, Cataline Quintana, and Julia Welling. We also welcome a local artist of the highest repute -- Jerrod Landon Porter -- who will be sharing his “In a Perfect World” comic strip with the pages of Villager. If you don’t recognize his name, then you have probably just overlooked his signature, or his “I Heart JLP” tag, because it is nearly impossible live here and to not have seen his artwork somewhere. And finally, as usual, thank you for reading Villager, sending your news and information, carrying us in your shop, visiting our website, advertising, coming to our WTF? Revue, or sharing our links and paper with those you know! The night of our inaugural WTF? Revue last week was extremely gratifying -- for myself and all of the contributors that make Villager possible. It was great to see that, in fact, somebody does read this rag!

Democracy Sells, But Who’s Buying? By Jennifer Proffitt If you thought the $5 billion spent during the 2008 election cycle was outrageous, then 2012 will prove to be super expensive thanks to political organizations known as SuperPACs. AdAge estimates that election spending in 2012 will be nearly $10 billion, largely driven by traditional Political Action Committees (PACs) and the more recent and largely unaccountable SuperPACs. These organizations will likely spend almost as much as the cost of the entire (record-breaking) 2008 election cycle. Sadly, our elections are for sale, and with the rise of SuperPACs, we do not necessarily know who is buying them. Even more, broadcasters, which were given the public airwaves for free with the promise to serve the public interest, have fought attempts at tightened disclosure regulations to protect their own corporate interests. In the 2010 Citizens United case, the Supreme Court ruled 5–4 — along ideological lines — to overturn the part of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 (BCRA) that regulated “electioneering communications.” Previously, no independent entity could purchase advertising on broadcast, cable, or satellite within 60 days of a general election or 30 days of a primary election, and corporations and unions were restricted from funding such communication from their general funds except under certain circumstances. Today, corporations and unions can spend unlimited amounts of money on media messages to sway our elections at any point in time. SuperPACs are political organizations that, due in large part to the Citizens United decision, allow individuals, corporations, unions and other groups to raise unlimited amounts of money to spend on advocating for or against political candidates. Examples include

the pro-Romney Restore Our Future, the pro-Obama Priorities USA Action, and Karl Rove’s American Crossroads. Though SuperPACs cannot legally coordinate with candidates or parties, they are often headed by friends or allies of candidates and are staffed by former campaign employees in a revolving-door relationship that benefits all parties involved. The Supreme Court did uphold the disclosure regulations found in the BCRA. As Jeffery Rosen reported in The New Republic, Justice Kennedy suggested that disclosure requirements “would provide the electorate with full ‘information about the sources of electionrelated spending.’” However, SuperPACs have a large loophole that makes it difficult for citizens to determine the veracity of messages presented in political ads: According to the Center for Responsive Politics, SuperPACs can “legally avoid disclosing individual donors by attributing donations to nonprofit organizations, which are not required by law to reveal their donors.” As such, citizens are left in the dark regarding who’s paying to influence politics. Both corporations and broadcasters are fighting attempts to force full disclosure regarding SuperPAC donors, suggesting that such disclosure may chill political speech. Rosen reports that broadcasters fought a new FCC regulation that will require broadcasters to post their public inspection files online, which include disclosure regarding who paid for political ads, how much they paid, and when the ads were aired, in part because “As a condition of their monopoly on the airwaves, the networks are required to offer campaigns the lowest customary rates, but right before elections, they often demand higher rates from candidates.”

18/ CapitalCityVillager/ May 25, 2012/ vol. 1 iss. 7

This information would be much easier to access if public inspection files were digitized rather than in physical files located at individual stations, like WCTV, accessible only in person and during normal business hours. Rosen notes that broadcasters deny that they overcharge candidates and instead argue that digitizing the public inspection files will be costly, but considering the amount of money SuperPACs are spending on ads — such as the millions of dollars spent during the Florida Republican presidential primaries alone — this argument is specious at best. Further, though local broadcasters experience an economic windfall each election year, none of this money is reinvested in the community in the form of better local television journalism. Rather, corporate political money goes to the corporate media parent, leaving communities with few resources for indepth news and analysis in order to increase profit margins and demonstrating cultural strip-mining at its finest. Though it appears nearly impossible to fight the corporate voice in politics when money is equated with free speech, there have been attempts at forcing transparency, including the largely defunct DISCLOSE Act, which would have required greater disclosure of information about those financing political ads. Though these attempts have been struck down by legislators benefiting from SuperPAC money — as politicians do not need to spend as much money on ads now that SuperPACs can do so with few restrictions — we should still demand legislation that requires transparency regarding elections. States such as Vermont, New Mexico, and Hawaii have called for

Further, though local broadcasters experience an economic windfall each election year, none of this money is reinvested in the community in the form of better local television journalism. Rather, corporate political money goes to the corporate media parent, leaving communities with few resources for indepth news a constitutional amendment to overturn the Citizens United decision in an attempt to get money out of politics. Finding ways to counter the expanding corporate takeover of elections is absolutely necessary if we believe in a democratized political system that favors equity, fairness, and justice rather than self-interest, profits, and short-sightedness.

Videos Of The Week

RE-RE-REcycle

We caught this video on Facebook, posted by the Leon County School System, and thought it would be great to help these students from Godby High get some more hits on the meter. (If you’ve ever posted a video online, you know how encouraging the view-meter can be, and this crew is soooo close to 1,000.) Under the guidance of Godby Dance Instructor Cheryl Wimberly -- according to the YouTube description -- the “Million Dollar Boy$” wrote and produced this rap video Search YouTube: “Recycle Godby” that encourages viewers to “RE-RE-RE-Cycle.” Kudos to the young men and women who made the video, to the faculty who assisted, and to Leon County Schools for promoting and encouraging local talent. Remember, a click is a pat on the back. View at TallyVillager.com (Video of the week)
