news & Opinion Editor’s Note
The a-peeling wisdom of the Bananas by Jim Morekis
JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2016
THE FEEL-GOOD HIT of the summer is without a doubt the Savannah Bananas. The wildly successful new college summer league team playing in Grayson Stadium isn’t just a marketing lollapalooza. They offer some concrete, pragmatic, teachable moments about our little town, about things we can do to make it better. If you’ve been to a Bananas game, you know what I’m talking about: It ain’t anything like the old Sand Gnats. If you haven’t, here’s the deal: It’s college players playing real baseball, i.e. wood bats instead of the ridiculous aluminum bats the NCAA forces them to use in the regular season when they’re back at school. College Students + No NCAA = More Fun. So once a game, Bananas players come out between innings and shake their butts to “Apache (Jump On It).” Later, players will come into the stands with a red rose to give away to ladies of all ages and descriptions, a particularly sweet touch. The players—not subject to the brutal on-the-bus, off-the-bus, what-townis-this-again grind of the typical minor league pro season—are clearly happy to do what they do and enjoy the crowd interaction. From what I’ve seen, it’s difficult for a kid not to come away with a Banana’s autograph or two or three. Indeed, there are more kids, and more younger kids, at a Bananas game than I ever saw at a Sand Gnats game. The all-you-can-eat wristband option makes it an affordable night out to feed a family —including, you guessed it, chocolate-covered bananas. (The alcohol license, of course, is vital to getting adults out, same as with the Sand Gnats.) While everyone said they hated the name “Bananas” when first announced, the genius of the moniker is apparent in the way every piece of marketing collateral, every color scheme, every silly game for the fans between innings ties into the familiar long yellow fruit in some way. (Including some mild double entendres for the adults to snicker over while the kids 8 enjoy the goofiness.)
The young owner of the team, Jesse Cole, spends each game walking the stands suited up as a sort of bright yellow Willie Wonka, taking pics with fans with his selfie stick, throwing out free T-shirts, and pumping up the crowd. The concessions and ticketing staff are all new hires and all smiles. They are as perky and personable as some of the former concessions workers at Grayson were, um, blasé, to put it charitably. While technically the team mascot is Split—a hypermasculine banana wearing Oakleys and a pro wrestler’s cape—the real mascot is Daisy the Bat Dog, an adorable little rescue pup who goes for a walk
The new Walk of Fame honoring greats who’ve played in Grayson Stadium. Why didn’t anyone do this before?
through the stands. And oh, yeah, about the games themselves: Surprisingly competitive and surprisingly fun. Because the pitching, while pretty good, is still a bit under pro standards, there’s lots of offense. How much offense? The last game I went to the Bananas won 26-4. Not a typo! (The manual scoreboard at Grayson only goes up to 20. So by the seventh inning they had to just leave the 20 up there.) The single thing that strikes me most about what the Bananas have done is what you see now in the ground level concourse: They installed a Walk of Fame honoring six fan-picked iconic players who played in Grayson Stadium. Names like Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Lou Gehrig. The very biggest names, names we’ve known forever that played here.
But curiously, names which neither the City nor any of the other teams to play in Grayson ever took the effort to honor in this manner. Such a simple thing, right? A real no-brainer. In the decades of minor league ball in Savannah, why didn’t anyone think of honoring those famous visiting players before? It seems so obvious, painfully so, not only from a historical perspective but from a marketing perspective. But that’s one of the lessons the Bananas have for Savannah: Don’t Screw Up The No-Brainers. Or in this case it might be more on-point to say, “Go For The LowHanging Fruit.” Other lessons the Bananas teach the Savannah business and political community: Always Be Nice. It costs nothing to smile and be pleasant to customers. But for some reason it’s becoming less and less common in this city known for hospitality. I can think of vanishingly few restaurants and stores in Savannah not in desperate need of this advice. Offer True Value. Turns out Savannah really will enthusiastically support a baseball team—just not the Sand Gnats! The Bananas’ focus on providing lots of entertainment for little money is the ticket. It seems the dubious “prestige” of being associated with the Major League farm system is completely immaterial to us. Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously. And I don’t just mean Banana costumes. Not long ago City leaders pushed a brand-new, taxpayer-funded, big-city style stadium downtown to host the Savannah Sand Gnats, who had trouble selling out little old Grayson Stadium. Build it and they will come, was the mantra. Give baseball to the tourists and charge them, and taxpayers, accordingly. Given the Bananas’ success today, can you imagine if we’d gone ahead with that? The mind reels. Savannah isn’t a shiny new big-city stadium kind of place. And that’s OK. Savannah’s the kind of place where families can go enjoy themselves on a hot summer night, cheering the thwack of ball on bat, watching the grounds crew in banana outfits lip-sync to boy band tunes, all within the walls of a humble but historic place walked by the friendly ghosts of the biggest giants of the great American game. The lesson of the Bananas is: We should try and be the best Savannah we can be. cs

Response to Public Art piece
Editor, Regarding Jessica Leigh Lebos’ June 15th article entitled, “Public Art vs. Public Policy- who holds the power to move forward?” As Chairman of the Historic Site and Monument Commission, I would like to thank Ms. Lebos and Connect Savannah for shedding light and insight into the importance of public art in Savannah. I would also like to provide some clarification on the role of the Commission. Savannah has a long tradition of installing public art throughout the city, although most of the public art has been in the form of monuments. For example, along the Bull Street corridor, the squares were occupied by significant monuments by 1910. Early monuments/public art tended to be inspired by military events and leaders although significant historical events were also commemorated. Savannah’s tradition of fountains, such as the Forsyth Park Fountain (installed in 1858) and the Cotton Exchange Fountain (installed in 1889) provided aesthetic enhancements to Savannah’s public spaces without necessarily commemorating a particular event. More contemporary forms of public art emerged in the later twentieth century such as the Armillary Sphere in Troup Square (1968) or the Two Worlds Apart Sculpture adjacent to Telfair Square (1991). Civic leaders saw the importance of public art to Savannah early in its history and created the Historic Site and Monument Commission (HSMC) in 1949. The HSMC is appointed by City Council and is tasked with evaluating proposals for markers, monuments and public art throughout the City. For proposals on private property, the HSMC is a decision-making body. For proposals on public property, the HSMC makes recommendations to City Council. In response to the desire from artists for murals to be placed within the city, the “Markers, Monuments and Public Art Master Plan and Guidelines for the City of Savannah” was developed and subsequently adopted by City Council in 2007. This document, available through www. thempc.org, establishes the process and criteria which the HSMC utilizes to evaluate new markers, monuments and public art within the City.
Unlike the article implied, the HSMC is not a division, department or entity of the Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC). The HSMC holds meetings in the MPC’s conference room and is staffed by MPC staff but it is a Commission created by, appointed by and reports to City Council. The process for approval of a mural (or any other work of art) is straightforward and consistent- submit an application and supporting materials by the deadline and be heard at the next HSMC meeting. Our commission is made-up of volunteers and has an excellent record of meeting every month on the first Thursday at 4 p.m. The article stated that, “the laborious nature of the process can be discouraging.” While there is a process, as a public commission, one of the most important things that we do is provide an opportunity for public input and comment in an open and transparent forum. Everyone is welcome to attend, listen and comment. The article further goes on to state that the HSMC “often sends back projects for revision: a project can take several months to be approved.” That is an erroneous statement. As a matter of fact, we have approved all but one mural aptlication that we have heard. To state that a project “would have taken literally years to get through all the red tape had it gone through official channels” is simply not supported by the facts. The HSMC is not opposed to considering opportunities to streamline the review process and in fact conducted a public discussion for that very purpose and will conduct another. However, any amendments must incorporate maintaining community standards and ensuring opportunities for public notice and comment. Additionally, any changes to the Master Plan and Guidelines would need to be reviewed and approved by City Council. The article goes on to discuss opportunities for a City-sponsored, tax-funded program. Such a program would need the support and approval of City leaders, specifically City Council, to move forward. Frankly, we would welcome such a program. I would recommend that the art community in Savannah take a proactive role in defining, developing and advocating for what that program might look like.

by John Bennett
I LEARNED a valuable lesson last month: If you try to incite a bidding war in a silent auction, you may go home with a beach cruiser you don’t really need. That’s how I wound up with a cruiser donated to the Savannah Bicycle Campaign’s Pedal Medal Award Celebration auction by Tim’s Bike and Beach Gear on Tybee Island. I incorrectly predicted I’d be outbid. Over Memorial Day Weekend I decided, since I own it, I might as well ride it. I set off on a meandering tour of the parks of Ardsley Park and stopped at each and every one. If you’re keeping score, that’s Theus, Solomons, Hull, McCauley, Guckenheimer, Kavanaugh, Entelman, Vetsburg, Adams, Lattimore, Tiedeman, and the Atlantic Avenue Mall. I also included Baldwin and Daffin parks on my ride. I had a blast and kept riding even after a light rain started to fall. I’ve owned dozens of bicycles since I’ve lived in Savannah, but oddly, never a beach cruiser. Now I know what I’ve been missing. Its single gear, fat tires, squishy saddle, and handlebar wingspan wider than some of the doorways in my 89-year-old house, mean I cannot go anywhere quickly on this bike — not than I’m a fast rider. I’m on the slow side of the spectrum, even on the nimblest bicycle. Still, traveling at a much more leisurely pace allowed me to closely observe and experience my neighborhood. This bike is built for wandering and coasting, for lingering in the shade and enjoying the sunshine. Riding the cruiser reminds me of the advantages of Savannah’s topographical situation. The flat terrain makes our

news & Opinion straight dope
I’m curious why tabloids haven’t been sued out of existence. I do recall Carol Burnett getting a bit of remuneration for the heartache they caused her some years back, but surely there can’t be so much apathy that celebrities will permit almost anything to be said about their lives. Maybe it’s a subtle form of blackmail: “At least if they say I’m in rehab, they aren’t exposing my extramarital affairs.” —Baldur Bear

THERE are good reasons celebrities encounter difficulty getting a libel case against the press to stick, but let’s note at the outset that currently the real action is in privacy violation. Silicon Valley, as we’ve recently discovered, is innovating the hell out of this arena. You probably saw the news that the media organization Gawker declared bankruptcy after fighting a series of lawsuits secretly funded by Peter Thiel, a tech gazillionaire with a grudge, his goal no less than to put Gawker out of business. After the knockout punch, a privacy suit over a Hulk Hogan sex tape resulting in a $140 million judgement, observers fretted that Thiel had single-handedly opened up a new front against the free press: If you’ve got enough money, you don’t need to prove libel or privacy violation in your own case (Thiel objected to being quasi-outed as gay in a 2007 Gawker piece). You just have to spend eight or nine years burying your nemesis in other people’s cases until you find one with enough merit to put ’em out
of their misery. OK, so this might be a little breathless. Who knows? Maybe all the public opprobrium will shame these billionaires into behaving. (Ha ha.) But Thiel’s covert tactics reflect the robust good health of press-protection laws in the United States. Thiel might not have won a privacy case, since his orientation was already an open secret, and he couldn’t have won a libel case because Gawker would’ve argued the piece they published was true. But even if it hadn’t been, that hardly would’ve mattered. Thiel’s a “public figure”—part of a special, less-protected class as far as libel law is concerned. Put plainly, if you’re the editor of the National Enquirer, you can print significantly nastier stuff about somebody famous than you can about, say, the schoolteacher next door. Public figures are still at an advantage relative to “public officials”— i.e., elected representatives—but not as likely to succeed in a libel case as “limitedpurpose public figures,” folks who’ve been thrust temporarily into the public eye— witnesses to a high-profile murder, for instance. In order to win a libel suit against a news organization, public figures have to demonstrate that the offending party acted with “actual malice,” which is not a Tom Clancy novel but rather a standard set by the Supreme Court’s 1964 decision in New York Times v. Sullivan: they must show that the defendant knew for sure that the offending information was false, and published it anyway. Mind-reading being notoriously difficult, this sets a pretty high bar. Not that there haven’t been conspicuous celebrity wins. As you mention, in 1976 Carol Burnett went after the Enquirer for implying she’d been obstreperously drunk in public, despite sources’ reports to the contrary. (A distinction to keep in mind: we’re talking here about tabloids that traffic in salacious gossip, rather than those that print obviously absurd “Miranda Lambert Impregnated by Aliens!”-type material; any celebrity who’d sue over
that stuff needs their head examined.) Drawing upon her considerable resolve and resources, Burnett prevailed in court and finally settled. Her success launched what the Atlantic calls the “modern era of tabloid litigation,” wherein other slighted celebs were emboldened to fight back. In response the tabs lawyered up to the nines. House counsel now put their eyes on everything at the major tabloids; one former Enquirer staffer has said that two attorneys there look at each piece, and not in some toothless advisory capacity—if they say kill it, it gets killed. These aren’t strip-mall sleazebags, either. For instance, it was David Kendall, one of Bill Clinton’s lawyers during various ’90s scandals, who had earlier green-lighted an Enquirer story headlined “Liberace’s Secret Battle with AIDS.” (I guess I’m not making a particularly strong case here that the guy’s not a sleazebag. He is, however, a very well-regarded one.) If an article that makes it to print does ruffle any serious feathers, the tabs’ significant legal manpower gives them the option of dragging a case out forever; and by suing, celebrities expose themselves to the discovery process, during which—as you correctly suggest—they might be required to cough up personal information they’d really rather not. Altogether, such factors make it both tedious and legally difficult for celebrities to win a media libel case. The Sullivan standard, by the way, means the U.S. is pretty much sui generis when it comes to libel law, at least until President Trump takes office. “I’m going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money,” promised the Donald. The short-finger jokes seem like they’re really starting to get to him. cs

Suspect in custody for car theft from Waters Avenue dealership
Christopher Jay Plemmons, 40, was arrested June 21 by SCMPD for a probation violation warrant in Cobb County. Southside Precinct detectives are in the process of obtaining arrest warrants for the June 15 stolen automobile. He remains at the Chatham County Detention Center. Detectives say Plemmons stole a car from a dealership at approximately 4:30 p.m., June 15, in the 6700 block of Waters Avenue. “The suspect entered the car dealership and asked for the keys to a gray 2006 BMW 352i while the owner was on the phone. The suspect then walked out of the dealership, got into the car and fled the scene heading southbound on Waters,” police say.

news & Opinion News of the weird The Bunyadi opened in London in June for a three-month run as the world’s newest nude-dining experience, and now has a reservation waiting list of 40,000 (since it only seats 42). Besides the nakedness, the Bunyadi creates “true liberation” (said its founder) by serving only food “from nature,” cooked over fire (no electricity). Waiters are nude, as well, except for minimal concessions to seated diners addressing standing servers. Tokyo’s Amrita nude eatery, opening in July, is a bit more playful, with best-body male waiters and an optional floor show—and no “overweight” patrons allowed. Both restaurants provide some sort of derriere-cover for sitting, and require diners to check their cellphones at the door.
Milwaukee’s WITI-TV, in an on-thescene report from Loretta, Wisconsin (in the state’s northwest backwoods), in May, described the town’s baffling fascination with “Wood Tick Racing,” held annually, provided someone finds enough wood ticks to place in a circle so that townspeople can wager on which one hops out first. The “races” began 37 years ago, and this year “Howard” was declared the winner. (According to the organizers, at the end of the day, all contestants, except Howard, were to be smashed with a mallet.)
Government in Action
The Department of Veterans Affairs revealed in May that, between 2007 and last year, nearly 25,000 vets examined for traumatic brain injury at 40 VA facilities were not seen by medical personnel qualified to render the diagnosis—which may account for the result that, according to veterans’ activists, very few of them were ever referred for treatment. (TBI, of course, is the “signature wound” of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.)
The Entrepreneurial Spirit!
Basking in its “record high” in venturecapital funding, the Chinese Jiedaibao website put its business model into practice recently: facilitating offers of “jumbo” personal loans (two to five times the normal limit) to female students who submit nude photos. The student agrees that if the loan is not repaid on time (at exorbitant interest rates), the lender can release the photos online. (The business has been
heavily criticized, but the company’s headquarters said the privately negotiated contracts are beyond its control.)

News of the Weird Classic (June 2012)
Collections of comically poor translations are legion, but the Beijing Municipal government, in sympathy with Englishspeaking restaurant-goers, published a helpful guidebook recently (2012) of what the restaurateurs were trying, though inartfully, to say. In an interview with the authors, NBC News learned the actual contents of “Hand Shredded A$$ Meat” (sic) (merely donkey meat) and other baffling dishes (all taken from actual menus), such as “Cowboy Leg,” “Red-Burned Lion Head,” “Blow-up Flatfish with No Result,” and the very unhelpful “Strange Flavor Noodles” and “Tofu Made By Woman With Freckles.” cs By chuck shepherd UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

The philosophy of Savannah booking entity Dad Joke is simple: no contracts. No paperwork. Just the Golden Rule treatment for bands and a hard and fast desire to create an inviting environment for touring and local talent. Daniel Lynch (Cray Bags, Sunglow, Greta O. and the Toxic Shock) and Josh Sterno (Cray Bags, Greta O. and the Toxic Shock) founded Dad Joke to amplify punk and its plentiful variations in the Lowcountry. They were joined by Joe Kapcin shortly after, forming a trifecta of booking experience. After their first delve into festival curation, November’s Punk Mess, the boys are back with Punk Mess 2, a two-day event spread between Sulfur Studios and The Jinx with 23 total bands. The lineup boasts the best and tightest, the slimiest and sloppiest of (mostly Southeast) punk. The Coffin Daggers, a killer instrumental surf band from New York, headline; with Victor Dominicis of Nausea and Reagan Youth on lead guitar, their show is a can’t-miss. Dad Joke has pulled in buzzed-about projects like Sick Thoughts, a furious, unabashedly weirdo one-man garage punk project that’s drawn the attention of many a tastemaker and fetched a favorable 7.7 rating from Pitchfork. Gainesville band Soda just returned from a tour with Parquet Courts; both have releases on the label Dull Tools. If you’ve attended any number of Dad Joke shows in the last year or so, you’re sure to see some familiar names on the Mess lineup—like Orlando faves Tight Genes and JAX synth-punks The Mold—and some SAV friends, too. Ten local bands will play Punk Mess, including Lynch and Sterno’s own Greta O. and The Toxic Shock and Cray Bags, as well as Shoplifters, Keith Kozel of Superhorse and GAM’s new project. With no recordings to be heard, Shoplifters promises elusive excitement. On the whole, the fest is a fuzz-punk, garage, and noise-punk affair, but there’s some surf, power-pop, and heavy stuff in there, too. “There’s a little something for everyone who likes alternative, punk, whatever you want to call it,” Sterno says. The Dad Joke trio don’t have hard “roles” within their organization, preferring to keep it casual but efficient with all hands on deck. “We’re all in contact with different people in all these bands,” Lynch explains. “We’ll take care of you. We’ll curate a show, create a

great time for you, and keep your tour smooth.” Bands get full festival passes for the weekend—which is pretty awesome, considering most Mess performers have shared the stage with one another at some point in time. “A lot are staying over into the next day to see each other play,” says Lynch. “Most of the bands are in a certain counterculture, regardless of genre. Even though there’s a big span, everybody’s into everybody else’s stuff.” That community has found a home in Savannah thanks to Dad Joke’s influence on the scene. Many Punk Mess bands have already performed here, and those that haven’t are raring to play the festival. Even with Dad Joke having existed for all of a year and a half, it just took Sterno creating a Facebook event months in advance for bands to reach out and ask for a chance to play. With their devotion to booking yearround—reaching out to bands they enjoy, asking them to come play Savannah, those bands having a good time and spreading the word in their own scenes—Savannah’s become a staple stop for scuzzy DIY bands touring in the Southeast. In years past, tours may have hit Atlanta and skipped on over to Jacksonville; now, Savannah is the go-to in-between date. “A lot of people do that run, and they play shows with our friends in Jacksonville and Atlanta, or people that we’re acquainted with,” Lynch says. Punk Mess fits nicely in the culture of Southern punk mini-festivals like Atlanta Mess-Around, specializing in sloppy, beer-soaked regional punk with some heavy-hitter national acts (Pissed Jeans headlined 2015, with The Real Kids and
The Gizmos taking the lead this year), and Total Punk’s Total Fuck Off, which showcases the Florida label’s finest. With

those weekend’s emphases on a grimy, debaucherous, sweat-stained, bruisin’ time, Punk Mess is a natural addition to the Southeast scene. Sterno attended this year’s Atlanta Mess-Around, and, in addition to having a hell of a good time, used the trip as a learning experience. “A lot of what I was seeing in how they ran it was basic protocol,” he shares. “Having a banner onstage, having different wristbands for each night. It’s the little things I took notice of, and I met a lot of people there, too. I gained knowledge in how to do it, even though I didn’t even really talk to anyone who ran it.” While starting a festival sounds like a horribly daunting task for someone who’s never attempted such a thing, Dad Joke approaches the endeavor like one big, stacked club bill because, at its core, Punk Mess is all about good shows: no frills, none of the experiential frivolities that have grown to plague music festival culture. Just the wild notion that all you need for a memorable weekend is a lineup of great bands and a floor for them to play on. With Sulfur Studios and The Jinx as venues, folks of all ages can enjoy the breadth of the fest. “You can go to Sulfur and watch music all day long and then head down to The Jinx,” says Lynch. “It’s a two-day event.” “It seems more like a festival this year than it did last year,” Sterno adds. Is the second of many Messes to come? Dad Joke hopes so. “Longevity is definitely desirable,” Lynch says. “As there was a circuit in the ‘70s and ‘80s for punk rock music, it’s happening now. We’re alive, and we want to do that here. Nobody else is doing it.” CS

Eric Sommer @The Sentient Bean
With fingerstyle picking, earthy roots, and New Wave edge, Eric Sommer has been captivating audiences since his time in the early ‘80s Boston folk scene. Sommer boasts a fascinating musical life story that’s found him winning audiences in hardcore punk venues, touring with Dead Kennedys, living in Aarhus, Denmark while playing with Danish bands, making a life on a houseboat in Amsterdam while gigging, coming back to America to live on the streets and in abandoned warehouses, giving it his all at every open mic he could find, and learning at the feet of influential and seasoned guitarist David Landau. A weaver of “motion music,” Sommer has composed for films, features, animation, and documentaries. He’s settled near Washington, D.C. these days, but his troubadour habit remains. Sommer loves to get out on the open road and share his talents, playing somewhere between 200 and 270 shows a year. With blues grit and front-porch authenticity, he’s an eclectic artist with a Brit-pop sensibility and front porch authenticity. Whether it’s a hooky chorus or a grimy, slide guitar riff, Sommer delivers an engaging and well-lived performance. Saturday, June 25, 8 p.m., $5, all-ages
Broccoli Samurai @Barrelhouse South
Ring in the Fourth of July with Cleveland, Ohio electronic/jam/funk juggernauts Broccoli Samurai. Since founding in 2010, the band has become a favorite of the festival circuit and club scene, filling up the dance floor with fans determined to dance into the wee hours of the morning. Festfollowing folks may have caught the group at The Werk Out, BIG What?!, Dome Fest, Mad Tea Party Jam, and on other noteworthy summer bills. This year, they’re stopping by jam/electronic big-hitter weekends like Electric Forest, Summerdance 2016, Buffalove Music Festival, and more. Blending electronic beats, funky bass and swirls of ambient synths, the four-piece band creates sonic textures with big drops that are sure to get even the shyest club goers up and on their feet.

Castle of Genre
JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2016
Castle of Genre, Big Awesome, Generation Pill, Grimsel @Sulfur Studios
Take in an evening of innovative digressions on indie, emo, punk, and alternative rock at Sulfur Studios. Castle of Genre returns to Savannah from their home of Richmond, Virginia. As the name suggests, the four-piece band blends together a myriad of influences to make a melodic kind of experimental emo with anthemic moments, inventive guitar, and relatable storytelling. Inspired by bands like Manchester Orchestra, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, and Tame Impala, Castle of Genre sticks out from the wave of emo revivalists with clean guitar and a knack for dodging old tropes, creating roomy verses with interesting dynamics. Give “Balcony,” from their 2014 LP Home: Loss & Ghosts, a spin, and experience crisp power chords under splashy drums with surprising pushes and pulls. Beaufort-residing Savannah favorites Big Awesome are currently working on new material to follow up the criticallyacclaimed LP Party On, released in 2015 via Jetsam-Flotsam Records. Generation Pill recently teased a single off their new album, Edict of Rats, to be released toward the end of July via Bomb Shelter Records. “Top Rock & Spindle” promises something beefier and more heavily raw than last year’s Out-pāShənt with a Collective Soul-style nod to ‘90s grunge vibes. Another banner Bomb Shelter Records’ band, Grimsel, rounds out the bill with shoegaze-influenced fuzzy rock. Tuesday, July 5, 7 p.m., $5, all-ages

Savannah loves some Everymen, and the whimsically rowdy punks are back again for a memorable show complete with audience engagement (pool noodle duels, anyone?), dancing on the bar, and the occasional bizarro cover (The Jinx was treated to a gypsy-fueled, acoustic-punk take on TLC’s “No Scrubs” during one of their last visits). With traditional folk instruments and over-the-top delivery, an Everymen show is always a treat. This time, the band’s bringing carnivalesque “dumpster swing” group Que Lastima with them, who promise an equally wild and wonderful set. Some may remember frontman Paultergeist from his time in Lake Worth, Florida rock/blues/swing band Viva Le Vox. After parting ways with that troupe, Paultergeist rounded up a band of merry misfits, summoning organ, accordion, guitar, upright bass, trumpet, sax, clarinet, and drums to create a swampy vintage sound with punk underpinnings. You’ll hear traces of jazz, gypsy, Santeria, rock, and doo-wop in Que Lastima’s sound, so answer the call, throw back a shot of bourbon, and get on the dance floor. Adding to the weirdo fun is The Zoo Peculiar, featuring Dr. Frank “Nipples” Lambshanks on lead vocals and keys, Furious “Ginger Bera” Rod on bass, melodica, and vocals, and Ryan J. “Baby Hollywood” Gatsby on drums, who promise “circus music from outer space.” The sound is zany, experimental rock with gypsy tones and carnival swagger. Like Everymen, these South Floridians are fans of elaborate live shows, often involving costuming, carnival performers, and balloon animals. John Vournakis offers kinda-crunchy, hooky, fingerpicking alt-country. He might not be pulling rabbits out of hats or circus antics like his billmates, but Vournakis’ stories about growing up in Connecticut, Georgia, and Michigan exhibit lovely, poetic tact with naturally excellent songwriting at the core.

Director David I.L. Poole gears up for season five of Collective Face By Orlando Montoya
YOU stand in line. You buy your ticket. You take your seat. The lights dim. And the actors appear. Hopefully, what comes next will be a “show that is really a show,” something that will “send you out with a kind of a glow,” to quote a song. Yes, “that’s entertainment.” And for almost ten years, theater director David I. L. Poole has been making it memorable in Savannah. You often read about his productions, which began here with “Agnes of God,” a mystery-drama for Savannah Actors Theater in 2007, but rarely about the man and his craft. “A great director has to be a storyteller” he says. “You have to be able to work with people yet guide actors through the journey of the play or musical.” Poole often talks about “the journey” when discussing theater. It’s a way of approaching each new staging, the selection of which itself journeys into the director’s mindset. Right now, he’s gearing up for his fifth season at Collective Face, the theater ensemble that he co-founded with Richie Cook. This year’s theme is “enduring engagements.” Theater-goers will see “Savannah Sipping Society,” “Pygmalion,” “9 to 5 the Musical” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” Each work deals in some way with lasting relationships. “I moved around a lot as a child,” Poole says. “My father was part of the military.” He reckons that he loves theater so much, in part, because it creates a family, an “enduring engagement” for him. He’s worked with several actors for many years. He knows their quirks. They know his. Not that we need to ply his psyche to enjoy the “song that’s winging along” or the “dance with the touch of romance.” Come to think of it, he likes a musical in each season. This year, it’s the Dolly Parton. He also likes a classic and a comedy in each season. “There’s a formula in some aspects,” he says of his selections. “There’s a diversity.” But what moves him personally? What does he like directing? Strong, femaledriven scripts, he says. The new work “Savannah Sipping Society” has a touch of Golden Girls in it. “Kiss of the Spider Woman” was a favorite from last season. So don’t expect any David Mamet!
David I.L. Poole says, ‘Plays that I love have a little bit of magic in them.’
“You don’t want me to direct that,” he says of the playwright known for male bonding themes. “I could. It would be a really weird fit for me. Plays that I love have a little bit of magic in them.” If a script doesn’t have magic, and it’s appropriate, he’ll sprinkle some of that dust over the whole set. He loves immersive set designs and puppets! “That’s where I got my start in the theater world,” he says of puppetry. “Puppets can do a lot of things. Some people love puppets. Some people hate them.” I didn’t ask what furry characters he animated in New York City, where the upstate New York native first ventured into theater while studying at Purchase College in Connecticut.
His stories from the Big Apple don’t seem to end happily. “How am I supposed to create theater when I can’t pay rent?” he asks. His move to Savannah for the Cardinal Rep production of “Night Mother” in 2008 was supposed to be temporary. But then he landed a job at SSU, where he teaches theater. “I have space, I have freedom,” he says. “Really, the heart of theater should be in smaller cities… That’s why I stayed in Savannah. It has a growing theater community.” And so he’s found a stage in our world, a world in our stage. Entertainment here hasn’t been the same since. cs

Savannah Children’s Choir goes home to Ireland
Group performs four concerts, tours nation as local emissaries to Wexford By Raymond Gaddy
JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2016
DURING the 1850s thousands of Irish immigrants landed in Savannah’s port. Of those thousands, over half came from the Irish county of Wexford. This bit of historical knowledge led the Savannah Children’s Choir to choose Ireland for its 10 Year Anniversary performance tour and making Wexford a point of destination This was not the first trip abroad that the Choir has made. The Premier Choir, the SCC’s highest level choir, travels abroad every two years, traveling in past years to, England, the Czech Republic and Italy. For many choir members, ranging in age from 10 to 14, this was their first trip abroad and for some it was their first time traveling in a plane. The Choir had four scheduled performances in Ireland, led by Rebecca Flaherty and Janet Wooten, who shared conducting duties during the trip. But they sang far more often that those four performances. The choir served as Savannah emissaries, performing for Jerry O’Dea, the Mayor of Limerick, who admitted that getting to meet people like them made his job worthwhile. The Savannah Children’s Choir prides itself not only in the excellence of its performances but in providing transformational opportunities for its members. Travel is itself one of these opportunities but there were several special interactions and educational components built into the trip to bring the kids closer to the culture and people of Ireland. Perhaps the most amazing example was working with the Irish choir Anúna, Ireland’s internationally reknowned choir. What began as an opportunity to watch a rehearsal, at the Wexford National Opera House, turned into an onstage workshop and performance of Media Vita, a Latin antiphony dating back that back as far as the year 750 and here arranged by Anuna’s own Michael McGlynn. The Anúna group members then spent time with individual members of the Choir, giving feedback and answering questions. Another interaction also began as a structured performance at Christ Church Cathedral in Waterford. The Choir was scheduled to perform with the Children’s Choir from the Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT). They met the choir 24 prior to the performance. What unfolded is
The SCC trip included a concert at Christ Church in Wexford.
For many choir members, ranging in age from 10 to 14, this was their first trip abroad and for some it was their first time traveling in a plane.
best told by Mrs. Flaherty. “Our Savannah kids filed inside nervously, awkwardly trying to assess these Irish kids, and them doing the same. The tension broke when WIT’s director, Niall Crowley, invited them to play one of their favorite warm-up games, Zip-Zap,” she says. “Our kids’ faces broke into smiles as they shouted, ‘I love that game! I know that one!’ From then on, friendships came quickly and easily. The small room was
filled with laughing, chatter, and huge smiles.” The two choirs discovered a song they both knew and performed it together during the performance, a spontaneous example of music bringing people together.” To complete the circle of travel begun the 1850s the Choir visited the town of New Ross, the inland port where so many Irish families boarded so called famine ships to try their luck in the city the Choir calls home.
The Dunbrody Famine ship is a replica of a ship that made several journeys between Ireland and Savannah. The names on the manifest of the Dunbrody would be familiar to anyone in Savannah. Savannah Children’s choir member Morgan Soukhamneut found this part of the trip particularly educational. “When we got to see the famine ship, I learned about the hardships of all the people onboard and what their lives were like traveling overseas to Savannah,” Morgan says. Perhaps the most intense interaction came at the Choir’s final performance, given at a nursing home in Glendalough. “I looked up from my music to see that a group of our singers had gone outside to pick flowers. They came back with the daisies and dandelions that grew wild in the grass. Some of them had pansies from the cultivated garden . . . oops. It didn’t matter once I saw what came next,” says Flaherty. “These angels began greeting each member of their audience with a smile and a flower. I noticed little conversations starting between the old Irish and the young Americans.” Later as the choir performed, she says, “Some were moved to sing along, and some cried. As our choir sang, they began to cry too. They experienced in that little place the enormity of what they had to give. They felt the power of music, and marveled that they, these young kids who don’t seem to have control over anything, have the power to move souls with their voices and their sweet faces.” The Choir did have some opportunities for fun and a little education in between performances and meeting local dignitaries. The choir visited a working sheep farm where they watched a sheep being shorn and received their first taste of real Irish tea. They toured several beautiful Irish castles, highlighted by a visit to Castle Blarney where they each, bravely, kissed the Blarney Stone. To end the trip the choir visited Trinity College in Dublin to view the famous Book of Kells. Choir member Haley English summed it up best: “The thing I liked most about Ireland was how nice and genuine every single person was that I met. I really appreciated the hospitality and how people treated me.” cs More information about the Savannah Children’s Choir can be found at savannahchoir.org

JUNE 29-JULY 5, 2016
SAVANNAH has been having a resurgence of small, local, family owned businesses that specialize in providing niche products and services to our community. We are fortunate to be on the precipice of a huge shift in consciousness, and capitalism seems as if it is transitioning along with it. We’ve gotten so far away from how these systems were designed to function, that we might even be a little shocked when we see how well things work when we don’t mess with them. When large corporations are not making the decisions that will influence generations of people we, as a collective, can make wiser big picture decisions, instead of being force fed the “processed” information that we have been given. Education and awareness are the keys to breaking the binds, but not everyone is born with the same opportunities. The system is rigged, especially for low income families who do not have the resources to make those impactful choices; which increases the value for those who do, to make sound choices. We have to help the person next to us become more aware, so that we can continue to strengthen and fight back. It starts with food, which is at the core of our existence as human beings. Food paints the pictures of our past, present, and can see into the future. As we transition further into emerging face of our massive food industry, it is important for us to remember how things were before the industrial revolution issued in a wave of processed food. A time when we had relationships with the ingredients we used, which increased its value, and forced us to honor every flavor. That is why local farms are so important to our awareness and growth. If we can’t see where our food is coming from and the intention put behind growing it, how will we learn to the respect the food we are eating? How can expect our bodies to perform

to the max, if we aren’t aware of what we are putting into them? And the same goes for the flip side, when we think about those huge processing and manufacturing warehouses that handle the majority of the food on the shelves today. Do you think if you were able to watch the process and intention behind how our food is packaged that we would feel the same about putting it in our bodies? We are so detached from this phase of reality, that most of us look as if we are sleepwalking, dehydrated and overdosing on sugar. So we decided to take a drive right outside of Statesboro, in order to get some insight on how Hunter Cattle Co., one of the largest and most respected farms in the southeast handles their role in our food cycle. Hunter Cattle is run by one of the most genuine and grounded families I’ve ever had the privilege of meeting. We got the opportunity to have a personal tour around their 400-plus acre farm, and caught a glimpse at how life on a farm like this would feel. Our tour was led by Kristan Fretwell, daughter, mother, and do-it-aller of this massive farm, and her oldest son Treylor. She sheds the perfect amount of light on how something like this could come together, and work so symbiotically. “This place originally was built to in sustain any natural disaster, and for our family to be able to survive off of the land. And as the recession hit us in 2008, we began to focus more and more of our attention towards the farm, and through necessity paired with word of mouth, we are here today,” Kristan says. “We run a true family farm, where everyone serves a purpose, and everyone pitches in.” She is telling the truth too, because whether you were the oldest or one of the youngest, you a had responsibility. Bookkeeping, cooking, cleaning, processing, and even gate opener; everyone has a job.
“I find that the more involved children are with their food, the more open they become to trying new things” Kristan explains. “And they can learn first hand how each aspect of the farm works with and for each other.” Watching how these pieces work together on a large scale is a beautiful thing to see, and just like the family, every piece has a job. The most interesting part of their story is the fact that this family didn’t have the agricultural knowledge most would need in the early stages of their farm. Fortunately for them, they had knowledgeable neighbors, each with a specific area of study, that allowed all the pieces to truly come together. From a neighboring meat scientist, to a long time pig farmer, all of the pieces Hunter Cattle needed were within arms reach. “We like to say our success has come from good book, good neighbors, and the good lord,” Kristan says. Now Hunter Cattle has grown into a nationally renowned farm that has won awards for the best meat in Georgia. Their animals receive no added growth hormones, steroids, or antibiotics, and are not forced into feedlots or cages; as they are one of the few farms that in the area that are Animal Welfare Certified. They are official providers for the National League Miami Marlins, as they continue to extend their reach. In addition to their product they host events, they have a bed and breakfast, and give public and private educational tours of their farm. If you’ve never seen a farm before, or it’s been a while, take a trip. It is important for us to bring ourselves back into the frame when it comes to our food and where it is coming from. Understanding how vital of a role farms play in our growth and development, is the key to getting a broader understanding of how far away our society is now. If we support local, we place the power in our hands. Let’s keep stirring that pot, people. cs Visit www.huntercattle.com

‘Gray’s Reef Tuesdays’ film series kicks off
Partnership with Tybee Post Theater focuses on maritime nature stories IN A very appropriate matchup, Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary and the Tybee Post Theater are kicking off Gray’s Reef Tuesdays, a weekly film series “highlighting the wonders of the ocean and our Georgia coast.” Gray’s Reef, of course, is about 16 miles off Sapelo Island, just to the southeast of Tybee. The historic Tybee Post Theater completed renovations late last year, returning to its original role as a community moviehouse, along with hosting live performances. A Gray’s Reef representative will be on hand to provide a brief overview of the Sanctuary and the evening’s film, as well as provide opportunity for an audience Q & A following the film. The seven-week series kicks-off July 5 and continues each Tuesday night at 7 p.m. through August 16. The series opens this Tuesday with Turtle: The Incredible Journey, the 2009 documentary about a Florida-born loggerhead turtle as she follows the path of her ancestors all around the world’s oceans. Other films include: National Geographic’s Secret Life of Predators, (July 12), segments from the popular series; Winter, the Dolphin That Can, (July 19), about a rescued baby dolphin caught in a crab trap; Guy Harvey Expeditions: Sharks and Lionfish, (July 26), real-life looks at these species; True Tales of Pirates and Lighthouses of the Southeast, (Aug. 2), for some takes in a more historic vein. All include talks with experts, and in some cases, the filmmakers themselves. There is a suggested donation of $5 with all proceeds benefiting the nonprofit Tybee Post Theater and Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary Foundation. In addition, the Tybee Post Theater concession stand will offer beer, wine, soft drinks, hot popcorn, and candy. Doors will open 30 minutes before each show. cs

Look Lively, Blake! The Shallows promises deadly-good summer fun.
/// Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the sunlight following what’s proving to be a rather desultory summer movie season, along comes The Shallows to drive everyone back into the deep end of the auditorium. Like the terrifying beast at its center, the film is a lean, mean, killing machine, getting on and off in a crisply efficient 85 minutes. And while it may be rated PG-13, it’s a PG-13 that ranks on the high, Red end of the Terror Alert scale, particularly for its shot of a victim who looks like the After in a magician’s sawing-a-woman-in-half trick gone wrong. The opening scene, a flash-forward which takes places after much of the action has already transpired, is a mistake, since it strips away some of the piece’s unpredictability. But we’re then back at the beginning of the story, which finds a young American named Nancy (Blake Lively) journeying to a secluded Mexican beach, the same one her late mother visited while pregnant with her 25 years earlier. After enjoying some killer waves, Nancy soon finds herself terrorized by a killer shark, and although the rock on which she’s stranded is a mere 200 yards from shore, the silent predator blocking her path means that the distance might as well be that from the earth to the moon. Jaume Collet-Serra, usually found directing Liam Neeson through some dire predicaments (their joint resume consists of Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night), has managed to craft a thriller that’s at least as memorable as 2003’s Open Water, perhaps the last shark tale of note. Working from a suitably streamlined script by Anthony Jaswinski (who was probably tempted to change his name to Jawsinski to further get into the spirit of the piece), Collet-Serra is only forced to heavily rely on his CGI shark for the finale,
opting instead to offer brief glimpses throughout most of the film. Yet the true star of The Shallows isn’t the junior Jaws but rather Blake Lively, who’s in almost every scene of what’s basically a one-woman show. Lively, whose big-screen career felt as if it were on life support until last year’s The Age of Adaline allowed her to strut her stuff, is excellent in this picture, delivering a performance both physically and mentally demanding. Bringing full dimension to a character that was conceived with only a few brush strokes by Jaswinski, she’s the primary reason the emotions in The Shallows run deep.
FREE STATE OF JONES
// Just as much history can be found in the eight minutes required to listen to Guns N’ Roses’ “Civil War” as can be derived from the 140 minutes necessary to watch Free State of Jones, the new Matthew McConaughey film which could easily have been named 2 Hours a Slog. Always earnest but only intermittently interesting, it suffers from Gary Ross’ ineffectual staging, a screenplay that manages to be both cluttered and incomplete, and too many examples betraying the maxim of “show, don’t tell.” “I don’t need your Civil War,” warbled Axl Rose. “It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.” That, in a nutshell, defines the mindset of Newton Knight (McConaughey), a Southern farmer who fights in the Confederate Army but soon comes to the realization that he and his fellow grunts are basically only spilling blood to protect the interests of the fat-cat slave owners. Thus, he opts to desert his outfit, emerging over time as Mississippi’s own Robin Hood and fighting for the rights of the region’s poor whites and enslaved blacks. Historical veracity be damned (as it usually is when it comes to Hollywood):
This has the makings of an engrossing and important movie, more so since it neatly ties into the modern era’s troubles with the entitled one percent, with Trump’s army of misguided yahoos, and with crushing racial prejudices. But the film is so poorly paced and constructed that its themes never manage to take root in any significant manner, with too much scrolling text and a clumsily integrated subplot (involving a trial over miscegenation, taking place 85 years after the war) but two of the culprits. McConaughey delivers a strong performance, but his character is one-note, with no flaws but plenty of didactic speeches — including a tone-deaf one in which he states that he and other poor whites are just as much “n*****s” as any black person (yes, because living in a dilapidated shack is absolutely no worse than being routinely chained, beaten, raped, castrated and lynched). Too bad. With its relevant issues and its look at an ugly chapter in American history, Free State of Jones should have been produced with enough care to register as an awards powerhouse at year’s end. But given the degree to which it bungles its information, perhaps this is the one time when it’s perfectly acceptable to shoot the messenger.
/// Critics often dismiss certain films (and not unreasonably, I might add) as nothing more than “formula pictures,” bland movies that star popular actors playing stock characters being thrust into predictable situations. Every once in a while, though, one of these efforts breaks free of the shackles of complacency and conformity and is elevated from a mere “formula picture” into a “winning formula.” Central Intelligence is one such title.

paper, it looks like the same-old same-old: A buddy action-comedy in which at least one of the pair is a cop and both are forced to bond as they confront murderous villains with itchy, NRA-approved fingers (see Hot Pursuit, Bulletproof, 48 Hrs., and about 48,000 more). In this one, Dwayne Johnson plays the law enforcement officer, a garrulous CIA agent operating under the name Bob Stone. As shown in flashbacks, Bob was a portly teenager and mercilessly bullied in high school, with the only person bothering to stick up for him being Calvin Joyner, the most popular kid on campus as well as the one voted most likely to succeed. But as an adult, Calvin (Kevin Hart) is thoroughly unhappy with his lot in life, as his job as an accountant is unsatisfying (particularly since he’s constantly passed over for promotions) and has even led to tension with his wife Maggie (Danielle Nicolet). But once Bob hits town for the 20-year class reunion, everything changes in a flash, as Calvin now finds himself inadvertently drawn into a massive CIA operation involving encrypted bank accounts, turncoat agents and a mysterious criminal mastermind known as the Black Badger. As I say, formula. The spyjinks play like second-tier Mission: Impossible (though Amy Ryan is perfect as an ice-cold CIA boss), and director Rawson Marshall Thurber is no better than adequate in his staging of the action sequences. But as a comedy — and as a two-seater vehicle for a pair of highly charismatic actors — Central Intelligence is hard to resist. As I’ve stated in past reviews for movies like The Wedding Ringer and Ride Along, Hart is always better than his material, but not this time. Even though he’s theoretically playing the piece’s straight man, he’s still given plenty of opportunities to show off his wired brand of comedy, especially when reacting to Bob’s very particular set of skills. He also enjoys an easy rapport with Johnson, who clearly is the star of the show. The artist formerly known as The Rock has long since proven that he has more natural acting chops than any other former muscleman-turned-thespian (sorry, Arnie), and he’s probably only going to get better. Already having flashed his comic chops in such pictures as Pain & Gain and Be Cool, he’s absolutely riotous as a perpetually cheerful guy who is fond of unicorns and cites Sixteen Candles as his all-time favorite film (he always related to the Molly Ringwald character). He’s the central reason why Central Intelligence works as well as it does.
// Of the first 10 animated features to come out the Pixar gate, only one was a sequel. But out of the last seven, four have been sequels, and of the four films announced for future release, three of them will be sequels. In other words, welcome to the studio’s cash-grab years. Of course, two of the follow-ups turned out to be instant classics (specifically, the Toy Story titles), and with last summer’s superb Inside Out, the Disney-owned outfit demonstrated that it can still produce wholly original movies worthy of the Pixar brand. Unfortunately, efforts like Finding Dory, while perfectly pleasant, do little to quell the feeling that a certain measure of rubber-stamp efficiency has gripped the studio. A sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo, this one focuses on the blue tang fish (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) who has suffered from short-term memory loss her entire life. Now recalling bits and pieces of her childhood and the close bond she enjoyed with her parents, she elects to cross the ocean in order to locate them, with the reluctant clownfish Marlin (Albert Brooks) and his eager son Nemo (Hayden Rolence) joining her in her seafaring search. As with Finding Nemo, the animation employed to capture the look of life under the sea is absolutely staggering, even if it no longer registers as the revolutionary feat it was 13 years ago. But Dory’s odyssey is never as involving (though certainly more repetitive) as Nemo’s, and while Dory, Nemo and especially Marlin are still fairly engaging protagonists, they’ve been surrounded by a supporting cast revealed to be one of the dullest yet conceived by the Pixar braintrust. Aside from a trio of sea lions (the speaking ones voiced by Idris Elba and Dominic West) and a grouchy octopus (Ed O’Neill), there’s very little color to these creations, and it’s unlikely the studio will be mounting spinoffs centered on such stiffs as a near-sighted whale shark (Kaitlin Olson), a bellyaching beluga whale (Ty Burrell) or a boisterous eagle ray (Bob Peterson). While select scenes dawdle, others provide a clever kick, such as Marlin’s encounters with a gooney bird. Of course, children will lap up the entire endeavor like so much ice cream, and while adults should also find enough of interest to make it worthwhile, I imagine many will still prefer the variation of this plot when it was R-rated and called Memento.
/// An underdog tale about an overachieving equine, Dark Horse centers on a magnificent animal named Dream Alliance and his triumphs and travails both on and off the racetrack. Yet even though this horse is the marquee draw, the movie is as much about the humans backing him all the way. In a small Welsh town, a group of working-class citizens led by bartender Jan Vokes elects to pool its meager financial resources and purchase a mare for the purpose of breeding a racehorse. As various subjects note, only the rich can afford to race horses, so when these ragtag folks show up with every intention of entering their decidedly non-thoroughbred (the product of their initial investment) in equestrian events, the whole affair has a Caddyshack-esque “snobs against the slobs” vibe to it. And as if ripped from the pages of a fictional feature like Caddyshack or The Bad News Bears or any other sports saga where the little guy (or, in this case, little foal) comes out on top, this documentary takes some unexpected turns that keep the saga percolating. It’s a cinch to be made into a Hollywood yarn, with Helen Mirren cast as Jan and Brendan Gleeson tapped to play her husband Brian. And for the pivotal role of Dream Alliance? I predict Oscar #4 for Daniel Day-Lewis.
THE CONJURING 2
/// When The Conjuring was released in the summer of 2013, I was one of those who rocked the status quo — that contingent being made up, of course, by those scores of critics and filmgoers who declared that Ohmygodthisisthescariestmovieevermade! — by giving the film a mixed, 2-1/2star review and writing, “I suppose it’s possible to be shaken to the core by this movie — even if it’s really not much more frightening than, say, The Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone or Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island — but ultimately, it’s just one more recycled haunted-house yarn. With an inexcusable 133-minute run time and a promise of more of the same, The Conjuring 2 wasn’t high on my screening priority list — and yet I dug it more than I did the original. Sure, sure, it’s impossible to believe that directorcowriter Wan and his team really mean for viewers to believe all this nonsense is based on fact, and, when all is said and done, it doesn’t deviate in any discernible ways from the usual haunted-house yarns (in fact, parts of this one smack so much of Poltergeist that we almost expect to learn that an Indian burial ground is somehow involved). But it gets so much right that I’m willing to give it a generous thumbs-up in what’s proving to be a particularly dismal movie
season (the films featuring the heroic Avengers and the nice guys excepted). For one thing, stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson make a far greater connection as the real-life wife-and-husband team of paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren, here whisked off to England in 1977 to confirm the legitimacy of the haunting of a house occupied by single mom Peggy Hodgson (Frances O’Connor) and her four children. Farmiga and Wilson gave solid performances in the original, but they’re even better here, primarily because their characters’ love for, and devotion to, each other not only feels palpable but also plays directly into the narrative in interesting and surprising ways. Another strength is the principal setting of a North London council house, a nice change from the Amityville Lite stateside houses usually seen in contemporary thrillers of this ilk. Wan and production designer Julie Berghoff do a splendid job of capturing the dankness of this sort of public housing prevalent at the time (and nice touch with the Starsky & Hutch posters in the two daughters’ shared bedroom). As for the performers portraying the members of the tormented Hodgson family, it’s 13-year-old Madison Wolfe who makes the strongest impression while tackling the largest role. As Janet, the demure daughter who’s the most affected by the supernatural shenanigans, she’s excellent, often recalling the promise of the teenage Natalie Portman. (I assumed Wolfe was a British newcomer; imagine my surprise when I learned I had already seen this American actress in several roles, including those of Bryan Cranston’s oldest daughter in Trumbo and Woody Harrelson’s oldest daughter in True Detective.) As in the first film, Wan does a fine job of establishing mood, which is good since the creatures are too derivative to manufacture much in the way of genuine terror. One demonic nun looks like a cross between Salem’s Lot’s vampiric Barlow and that crabby Mother Superior who used to rap your knuckles when you spoke up in class; another monster appears to be a hybrid of Jack Skellington and the Babadook. Honestly, the two scariest moments in this picture were doubtless unplanned. The first is the wallpaper seen in the hallway of the Warrens’ home, the sort of beastly pattern beloved during the ‘70s. The second fright is when a ghost switches a TV set from an episode of the popular BBC comedy The Goodies (not identified but instantly recognizable to those of us who enjoyed it in our youth abroad) to a speech being delivered by (shudder) Margaret Thatcher. As Colonel Kurtz might mutter, “The horror! The horror!” CS

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19)
During winter, some bears spend months hibernating. Their body temperatures and heart rates drop. They breathe drowsily. Their movements are minimal. Many hummingbirds engage in a similar slow-down -- but they do it every single night. By day they are among the most manic creatures on earth, flapping their wings and gathering sustenance with heroic zeal. When the sun slips below the horizon, they rest with equal intensity. In my estimation, Aries, you don’t need a full-on immersion in idleness like the bears. But you’d benefit from a shorter stint, akin to the hummingbird’s period of dormancy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
“Dear Dr. Brezsny: A psychic predicted that sometime this year I will fall in love with a convenience store clerk who’s secretly a down-on-his-luck prince of a small African country. She said that he and I have a unique destiny. Together we will break the world’s record for dancing without getting bitten in a pit of cobras while drunk on absinthe on our honeymoon. But there’s a problem. I didn’t have time to ask the psychic how I’ll meet my soulmate, and I can’t afford to pay $250 for another reading. Can you help? - Mopey Taurus.” Dear Mopey: The psychic lied. Neither she nor anyone else can see what the future will bring you. Why? Because what happens will be largely determined by your own actions. I suggest you celebrate this fact. It’s the perfect time to do so: July is Feed Your Willpower Month.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Of all the concert pianos in the world, 80 percent of them are made by Steinway. A former president of the company once remarked that in each piano, “243 taut strings exert a pull of 40,000 pounds on an iron frame.” He said it was “proof that out of great tension may come great harmony.” That will be a potential talent of yours in the coming weeks, Gemini. Like a Steinway piano, you will have the power to turn tension into beauty. But will you actually accomplish this noble goal, or will your efforts be less melodious? It all depends on how much poised selfdiscipline you summon.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Once upon a time, weren’t you the master builder who never finished building your castle? Weren’t you the exile who wandered aimlessly while fantasizing about the perfect sanctuary of the past or the sweet safety zone of the future? Didn’t you perversely nurture the ache that arose from your sense of not feeling at home in the world? I hope that by now you have renounced all of those kinky inclinations. If you haven’t, now would be an excellent time to do so. How might you reinvest the mojo that will

be liberated by the demise of those bad habits?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
In accordance with the astrological omens, I have selected three aphorisms by poet James Richardson to guide you. Aphorism #1: “The worst helplessness is forgetting there is help.” My commentary: You have the power to avoid that fate. Start by identifying the sources of healing and assistance that are available to you. Aphorism #2: “You do not have to be a fire to keep one burning.” My commentary: Generate all the heat and light you can, yes, but don’t torch yourself. Aphorism #3: “Patience is not very different from courage. It just takes longer.” My commentary: But it may not take a whole lot longer.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You may not know this, but I am the founder and CEO of Proud To Be Humble, an acclaimed organization devoted to minimizing vanity. It is my sworn duty to protest any ego that exceeds the acceptable limits as defined by the Geneva Convention on Narcissism. However, I now find myself conflicted. Because of the lyrical beauty and bighearted charisma that are currently emanating from your ego, I am unable, in good conscience, to ask you to tone yourself down. In fact, I hereby grant you a license to expand your self-love to unprecedented proportions. You may also feel free to unleash a series of lovely brags.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
The next 28 days will not be a favorable period to sit around passively wishing to be noticed. Nor will it be a good time to wait to be rescued or to trust in others to instigate desirable actions. On the other hand, it will be an excellent phase to be an initiator: to decide what needs to be done, to state your intentions concisely, and to carry out your master plan with alacrity and efficiency. To help ensure your success during the next 28 days, make this declaration each morning before breakfast: “I don’t want to OBSERVE the show. I want to BE the show.”
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
“In life, as in bicycling, pedal when you have to, coast when you can.” So says author James Lough, and now I’m passing on his advice to you -- just in time for your transition from the heavy-pedaling season to the coasting-isfun phase. I suspect that at this juncture in your life story you may be a bit addicted to the heavy pedaling. You could be so accustomed to the intensity that you’re inclined to be suspicious of an opportunity to enjoy ease and grace. Don’t be like that. Accept the gift with innocent gratitude.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
“When a jet flies low overhead, every glass in the cup-
board sings,” writes aphorist James Richardson. “Feelings are like that: choral, not single; mixed, never pure.” That’s always true, but it will be intensely true for you in the coming weeks. I hope you can find a way to tolerate, even thrive on, the flood of ambiguous complexity. I hope you won’t chicken out and try to pretend that your feelings are one-dimensional and easily understandable. In my opinion, you are ripe to receive rich lessons in the beauty and power of mysterious emotions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Pop artist Andy Warhol said that in the future, everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. His idea had a resonance with the phrase “nine days’ wonder,” which as far back as Elizabethan times referred to a person or event that captured the public’s fascination for a while. You Capricorns are entering a phase when you’re far more likely than usual to bask in the spotlight. Between now and September 2017, I bet you’ll garner at least a short burst of glory, acclaim, or stardom -- perhaps *much* more. Are you ready for your close-up? Have you prepped for the influx of attention that may be coming your way?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
One of my readers, Jay O’Dell, told me this story: “After my cancer surgery, a nurse said to me, ‘You may as well try magical thinking. Regular thinking hasn’t helped.’ I said to the nurse, ‘Well, why the hell not?’ That was seven years ago.” In bringing O’Dell’s testimony to your attention, I don’t mean to suggest you will have any health problems that warrant a strong dose of magical thinking. Not at all. But you may get wrapped up in a psychological twist or a spiritual riddle that would benefit from magical thinking. And what exactly is magical thinking? Here’s one definition: The stories that unfold in your imagination have important effects on what actually happens to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Let’s talk about X-factors and wild cards and strange attractors. By their very nature, they are unpredictable and ephemeral, even when they offer benevolent breakthroughs. So you may not even notice their arrival if you’re entranced by your expectations and stuck in your habitual ways. But here’s the good news, Pisces: Right now you are not unduly entranced by your expectations or stuck in your habits. Odds are high that you will spy the sweet twists of fate -- the X-factors and wild cards and strange attractors -- as they float into view. You will pounce on them and put them to work while they’re still fresh. And then they will help you hike your ratings or get the funding you need or animate the kind of love that heals.
