Effective coaching and mentoring doesn’t follow a one-size-fits-all strategy. Each person has different skills, experiences, motivations, and professional and organizational circumstances, so perceptiveness and adaptability are paramount. Additionally, there are best practices for both, whether you’re the one providing the coaching or mentoring, or the one who is receiving it.

A College Student Guide for the real world BY JIM MOREKIS

jim@connectsavannah.com

SO OUR special annual College Student Guide is super fun. We have all kinds of cool, practical stuff in here, from where to find late night eats, to realistic local bicycling tips, to the pending emergence of a real 18-20 music scene here, long delayed until a new City ordinance which will directly impact you for the better. But let me go ahead and kick things off on an incredibly depressing note, OK? One of the delightful aspects of my job is I get to be the bad guy who gives everyone the bad news. So here’s some brutally truthful advice you probably didn’t hear in any of your college pitches. If you’re a newcomer, I’ll be frank. Despite our obvious charm and outgoing nature, Savannah can be a dangerous city. Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble! Our staffer Rachael Flora has contributed a great safety guide in this issue from

the perspective of a recent college student (which, cough-cough, I’m certainly not). However, I thought I’d go a step further and use my bully pulpit here to give you an even bigger dose of the unvarnished truth, and the unvarnished advice to go with it. First, maintain situational awareness at all times. This does not mean be paranoid. Quite the opposite. It means don’t let distractions keep you from noticing potentially threatening people or situations. It’s called “Condition Yellow.” Basically that means don’t be in Condition White, which is totally inept obliviousness, i.e. your face stuck in your iPhone playing Pokemon Go on Whitaker Street at 2 a.m. Don’t be that guy or girl! (Note: I’m not saying you don’t have every right to be on Whitaker at 2 a.m.— I’m saying keep your head on a swivel if that’s really where you want to be.) Second, have a plan for the worst-case scenario. Yup, I’m talking about an active shooter situation. If your “plan” is to hide under a desk and play dead, dead is exactly what you’ll be.

Most schools are woefully inadequate in having a realistic active shooter protocol. My strong advice is to use speed as your friend. A moving target is difficult to hit. In any case, spend some time thinking what you might do if the unthinkable happens. (Pro tip: Not making a Facebook video of yourself during the incident!) Third, consider a level of personal defense you’re comfortable with. Wait a minute, is he saying I should pack heat? Well, not really — if you’re under 21 you’re too young to conceal a firearm legally, and Georgia doesn’t allow firearms on a college campus anyway. However, Georgia does now allow those 18+ to carry a Taser. Get one—they’re cheap—and get in the habit of carrying it. It’s no use back at the dorm or in your car. Speaking of cars: Don’t text and drive! And consider shaming those who do. There’s no status update or Insta post worth dying over, or killing someone over. So did I scare you enough? No worries. My last bit of advice: Enjoy all the actual fun stuff in this special issue! CS

We people of Savannah, we help Louisiana BY JESSICA LEIGH LEBOS

jll@connectsavannah.com

BY the time you read this, the ugly tempest brewing outside will have blown over, the sun returned to its rightful overhead position. This minute, however, the storm Formerly Known as Tropical Depression 9 has just become Hurricane Hermine, and we weather watchers are obsessively refreshing our feeds, watching the rainbow of reds and oranges swirl on the radar. We’ve downloaded the official NOAA app to get the most accurate predictions of whether the churning mass that’s swinging up towards Florida’s Big Bend will slam straight into Savannah. We’re filling the bathtubs with water and the cupboards with anchovies and Mexican chocolate. (Hey, don’t judge others’ comfort foods.) WSAV’s Kris Allred is imploring us to remain calm, that Hermine (come on, World Meteorological Association, why not Hermione? At least we already know how to pronounce it) might not hit us dead on. The alacritous Allred—Connect Savannah’s Best Meteorologist of

Still, it looks like we’re in for wet n’ windy start to the holiday weekend no matter what, and best case scenario is that we won’t have to spend Labor Day removing an oak tree from the living room. Talk about tropical depression. Perhaps we should take a cue from the folks in Louisiana, who know far

more than they ought to about the havoc weather can wreak and never let it keep them down. You hopefully know by now that Baton Rouge and its surrounding region suffered unprecedented flooding a few weeks ago, causing massive destruction and displacing thousands of people. Bayou neighbors immediately opened their homes as shelters and the indefatigable Cajun Navy went to work rescuing boatloads of refugees, though it took a minute for all that to emerge from the media dogpile over

Documentary screening commemorates 15th anniversary of 9/11 BY JESSICA LEIGH LEBOS

jll@connectsavannah.com

SEPT 7-13, 2016

IT seems improbable, practically magical: A forest of full-sized, mighty trees where there was once only rubble. The National September 11 Memorial & Museum is dedicated to those who lost their lives during the 2001 terrorist attack on New York City and Washington, DC. It occupies the footprint of the fallen towers of the World Trade Center, centered around memorial architect Michael Arad’s square, water-swallowing voids. Using a combination of elements, Arad designed the monument to honor the dead as well as to give respite to the living. His winning blueprint, Reflecting Absence, incorporated the planting of 400 swamp white oaks inside the eight-acre site, a testament to the hope, renewal and tenacity of New York City. The Memorial Plaza opened to the public on September 11, 2011 and attracts thousands of visitors a day who come to meditate near the pools, trace the engraved names or simply sit in the leafy shade of the oaks. Where these trees came from and how they journeyed to lower Manhattan is a story in itself, chronicled by filmmaker Scott Elliot in his 65-minute documentary The Trees. Made over the course of five years, The Trees follows the grove from its collection from various locations affected by the tragedy to their careful nurturing in New Jersey to the incredible feats of engineering required to bring them to Ground Zero. The film premieres this week on New York’s PBS affiliate, and Savannahians can catch the first public screening outside NYC this Saturday, Sept. 10 at 4pm at the Jepson Center. The screening benefits the Savannah Tree Foundation and includes a Q&A with Elliot. Brooklyn-based Elliot was a newbie filmmaker editing his first feature when the towers exploded, and like most New Yorkers, has carried a personal connection with that terrible day ever since. “I always knew I wanted to make some sort of film about 9/11, but I didn’t have the right subject,” says the founder of 590films. That changed one day in 2009 when a friend of a friend mentioned the trees while riding the subway, “where any good New York story comes to fruition,” laughs Elliot. “What immediately interested me was 10 how the landscapers had gone out and

Architect Michael Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker describe their vision for the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum in the documentary The Trees.

consciously found all 400 trees within a 50-mile radius of New York City, and I thought that was an interesting symbology. Then I met the guys who were so passionate about what they were doing, and I thought they were good characters, so I kept going and followed the story.” The film includes interviews with arborist Jason Bond, who watched over the boxed oaks through the winters as well as Richie Cabo, the urban horticulturalist who helped bring the 9/11 Survivor Tree back to life. The hardy Callery pear was found in the debris at Ground Zero, its branches snapped and its trunk scarred. Rescue workers brought it back to the Bronx, where Cabo and his team fed its roots and watched over it until new growth miraculously sprouted. The Survivor Tree’s planting in the 9/11 Memorial is one of the film’s most emotional moments, fed by the revelation that dozens of its cuttings now thrive around the country. While the narrative follows the trees, Elliot’s deft storytelling continually reminds of the people for whom they are dedicated. A repeated theme among the interviewees is how trees are mortal just like humans—the 9/11 trees have a 70 to 80 year life expectancy—though the filmmaker is careful to balance the metaphor. “9/11 is a serious topic, you don’t want to diminish that thousands of people lost their loves ones,” says Elliot. “I don’t want to anthropomorphize them too much. But there’s something about trees. They’re crucial to humanity.” That’s a sentiment Savannah Tree

Foundation Executive Director Karen Jenkins couldn’t agree with more. “Trees are such an important element of all public spaces, and the trees at the 9/11 Memorial Plaza have a wonderful story to tell,” says Jenkins, who tirelessly champions and educates citizens about Savannah’s fragile tree canopy. She found out about Elliot’s project through his Kickstarter two years ago, and after the film was completed she contacted him about showing it in Savannah, where it would attract an audience committed to both patriotism and arboreal preservation. “The Savannah Tree Foundation is privileged and honored to show The Trees in Savannah to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11,” says Jenkins. (The screening is not to be confused with STF’s Fall Frolic, taking place the following Thursday, Sept. 15, at Ships of the Sea Museum.) As the nation marks this significant and somber anniversary, some may find solace in the knowledge that Ground Zero is now a living memorial to those who were lost, commemorated by the unflagging passage of seasons, its blooms of spring and red leaves of fall to last for many years to come. As one woman in The Trees describes the memorial, “It’s not set in stone. It takes on time, it evolves.” CS

“THE TREES” AND Q&A WITH FILMMAKER SCOTT ELLIOT

When: 4pm, Sat., Sept. 10; reception 5:30pm Where: Jepson Center, 207 W. York St. Tickets: $10; $30 screening + reception Info: 912-233-TREE (8733) or savannahtree.org

Ryan Lochte’s smirk and Donald Trump’s deportation derping. The rest of the nation’s sloth-like response towards the buckets of rain and buckets of tears surely had something to do with the lack of moniker for that raindumping storm; I guess we don’t know what to do with ourselves unless we have a name to blame. But Crystal Brooks and Courtney Rawlins didn’t miss a beat of Baton Rouge’s misery. Both Savannah women have deep connections to the Gulf Coast, and each started a separate Facebook page to collect clothing, food, water, toiletries and other supplies the minute they heard the first accounts of the flooding from friends and family. “There are people living in hotels who have nothing, their entire lives swept away,” describes Courtney, a community powerhouse who has kin in Magee, MS, not far from Baton Rouge. Crystal hails from Houma, LA, and the busy mom of an even busier toddler figured the fastest way to help was to ask her social media network. “I could do something, so I did,” she says, summing up her prompt action with a shrug. The strangers quickly discovered each other online and joined forces, the power of their instant sisterhood multiplying exponentially. Within days, they had dozens of local businesses on board as donation drop-off points and secured an 18-wheeler to truck it all to Louisiana. Hundreds of generous Savannahians answered the hashtag call of #SAVforLA, bringing enough socks, toothbrushes, diapers, tampons, over-the-counter meds, granola bars, bottled water, candy bars and comfort items to fill not one but four tractor trailers. (You better believe there was hot sauce in those bags, swag.) The plastic-wrapped pallets continued to accrue last week in the parking lot of Nine Line Apparel, the veteran ownedand-operated t-shirt and gear company on President Street. “It’s amazing to see how much of an impact two individuals can have so quickly,” marveled Nine Line co-owner Danny Merritt of Courtney and Crystal. “If everyone had their mentality, these types of disasters would be hiccups.” After a week of collecting and sorting, the team—now comprised of dozens of volunteers—had to get all those goods to the people who need it. The first load left for Baton Rouge on Aug. 27, and two more donated trucks went out in midst of Hermine’s tantrum on Thursday evening. They’ll be met on the other end by Rich Semere, a Big Raggedy native and songwriter who had been living in Los Angeles until the flood waters started rising at home.

#SAVforLA co-conspirators Crystal Brooks and Courtney Rawlins watch the supplies head out.

“Once things happened here, I just came to back to help whatever way I could,” Rick said over the phone from Plank Road near US Hwy 110, where his parents have owned a nightclub for the past 20 years. “My folks have a lease on parking lot next door, and they let their crazy kid sort all this stuff and pass it out.” He connected with the #SAVforLA crew on Facebook, assembling his own team to unload the semi for eager residents and arranging for deliveries to those in outlying areas. He expresses tremendous gratitude for the grassroots efforts of the people of Savannah, since along with many Baton Rougians, Rick has been frustrated with the bureaucracy of traditional disaster response agencies. “None of the people here are happy with

the work that the Red Cross is doing,” he said, echoing reports of disorganized shelters and rejections of volunteers to help clean bathrooms. “I have heard they’ve been giving people with special needs the runaround, and the food they’ve been passing along is terrible, inedible.” The American Red Cross received a pummeling on social media in the last weeks from many unhappy flood victims claiming they had been mistreated or turned away. The 135 year-old disaster relief organization has responded to the criticism with more trainings for volunteers and a loosening of rules surrounding emergency food donations, and continues to serve the Baton Rouge area. Even amid the chaos, Rick says attitudes remain positive. “We are a resilient group

of folks here. No one is walking around hanging their heads. Even people who have so little are sharing it with others.” He looks forward to meeting Courtney face to face, who is on the road right now to help unload trucks two and three. There’s still need for another 18 wheels for the rest of the pile, and because of y’all’s overwhelming generosity, #SAVforLA isn’t able to accept any more physical donations at this time. (If you’d still like to help, please consider an online contribution.) She and Crystal say they’ve formed a lifelong friendship over the success of their spontaneity and plan to keep paying it forward with future projects. “We live in a coastal community, too,” reminds Courtney. “We don’t know when this will happen to us. When it does, I sure hope there are two moms in Louisiana who will be there.” Thankfully, today isn’t that day. Hurricane Hermine was just demoted back to a tropical storm and is on her way out to sea, though she still managed to put out power all over Chatham County and do some crazy damage with her windy ways. By the time the weekend’s out we may learn more about who needs help locally and beyond. Let’s be like these wise ladies and get in formation. CS

Our First Year Survival Guide BY RACHEL FLORA

rachael@connectsavannah.com

HELLO YOUTHS! I’m Rachael, Connect’s Events Editor and resident young person. I graduated from Armstrong almost two years ago (has it really been that long?!) with honors, and while I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything, I’m glad I made it through and got into the real world. I’m sure you all came to school with

yourself more money. Keep scraps of your supplies handy, because you never know when you’re going to need just a little bit of something. Take advantage of your student discount—all you have to do is ask. Lots of places carry at least a small discount for students, so keep your ID on you any time you go shopping. (Hang on to it after you graduate—I still use mine and I graduated two years ago.) Between the organizations at your school and around town, there are exactly zero reasons for you not to be involved in something. That being said, don’t overload yourself. I tended to take on more than I could realistically handle and then burned out hard. Before you take on something new, envision yourself working that responsibility in with everything else you do. If you immediately get a headache, don’t do it. Don’t get so caught up in studying that you forget to have fun. This is a really unique time in your life that you

I definitely came in with expectations, and while some of them came true, a lot didn’t.

COLLEGE STUDENT GUIDE BIKING IN THE SAV

The wheel truth about bicycling in Savannah

bicyclelinksav.com

Our News Cycle columnist peddles some good pedaling advice BY JOHN BENNETT

john@bicyclecampaign.org

YOU ARE a new student, recently arrived in Savannah. You may have questions about what it’s like to get around by bicycle here. That’s understandable. Savannah is a city like no other. Allow me to imagine having a conversation with you. I suspect you’re wondering…

Where are all the bike lanes?

Here’s the thing: There aren’t many. Of the few we have, the Lincoln Street bike lane is just barely worthy of the title, “bike lane.” It’s on the left side of street, the striping delineating it is completely worn away in some places, in other places the pavement is badly buckled and cracked, and it’s frequently occupied by parked cars. Still, Lincoln is a quiet, mostly shady street and it remains one of the city’s busiest cycling corridors despite the bike lane’s deplorable condition.

W 44th St

The good news is many of Savannah’s streets are delightfully bikeable even without bike lanes or dedicated infrastructure. When Gen. James Oglethorpe developed Savannah’s city plan in 1733, he managed to create a bike friendly city hundreds of years before bicycles hit the scene. The grid pattern provides plenty of options for reaching destinations, and the parks and squares calm traffic. People come from all over the world to ride bikes in Savannah and you’ll get to do it every day!

So Savannah is a cycling paradise?

Today Oglethorpe’s plan is being used as a model by contemporary city planners across the globe. Unfortunately, an effort was undertaken for almost a century to undo his good work and make the streets more convenient for cars. The manifestation of this misguided quest, which sadly is still underway, can be seen on streets like Whitaker, Drayton,

Bay, Henry, Anderson, and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Because they are configured to move as many cars and trucks as possible as fast as possible, these streets are always unwelcoming, frequently dangerous, and too often deadly to people on bikes (and people on foot). If your classroom building or workplace is located on one of these streets, please be extremely careful. If you can, avoid them altogether.

Would I be safer riding on the sidewalk?

In most cases, no. What’s more, it’s illegal in Georgia (unless you’re some kind of child prodigy starting college before your 12th birthday). The problem with sidewalk cycling is that it makes you especially vulnerable to collisions at intersections and near driveways, where drivers are scanning the street for other cars, but not looking for people riding bikes on the sidewalk. Same goes for riding through the squares. When you reappear on the street at the far side of a square, you are in a U location where drivers do not expect to “ encounter someone on a bike. And, of course, riding on sidewalks and through t squares could make you a threat to pedestrians. None of this will stop people in passing cars from yelling, “Get on the sidewalk!” at you. Pay them no mind. They’re dumb.

What about the center of Forsyth Park? It’s pretty wide in most places. It’s cool to ride there, right?

A fairly obscure, almost totally arbitrary, and rarely enforced (until recently) ordinance requires cyclists to walk their bikes from an area near the café and playground, north to a spot near the fountain. City marshals and perhaps even police officers will likely be stationed in the park for the first several weeks of fall quarter. Their mission is to catch you riding through the “Pedestrian Zone.” Whether you see people wearing badges in the park or not, and whether you choose to dismount or not, riding at a slow place is in everyone’s best interest. Always, always, always yield to people who are walking.

Using a lock, no matter how secure, on the front wheel only transmits this message: “I no longer wish to own this bike. You can have it. Except for the front wheel. I want to keep that, for some reason.”

Yes. Whatever you heard, you can be sure the situation is significantly worse than that.

How do I prevent my bike from being stolen?

There are specialists here who could steal your bike even if you chained it to a boat anchor and submerged it in the murky depths of the Savannah River. However, you can make things much more difficult for the average bike thief by using both a U-Lock AND a cable lock. Make sure you lock your bike to something damn near immovable. Locking your bike to a wooden porch railing is about as effective as tying it to a summer breeze. Using a lock, no matter how secure, on the front wheel only (as in the accompanying photo) transmits this message: “I no longer wish to own this bike. You can have it. Except for the front wheel. I want to keep that, for some reason.”

Now I’m starting to get a little freaked out. Give it to me straight: How do I survive on a bike in Savannah?

Stop at stop signs and traffic signals. Ride with traffic, not against it. Use lights at night. Don’t wear headphones while you are riding.

COLLEGE STUDENT GUIDE BIKE SHARE

Putting mettle to the pedal with SCAD bike share

HOW DOES IT WORK?

State-of-the-art system ready for students, faculty and staff BY JESSICA LEIGH LEBOS

jll@connectsavannah.com

SEPT 7-13, 2016

THE SCAD Bike Share program launched this week, and it already has 130 registered users on its brand new website. It doesn’t take a degree in rocket science (or maybe more appropriately, industrial design) to understand why. First of all, the easy-to-use program is entirely useable through a smart phone app, making it simpler to grab a bike than to order Chinese food. Anyone with a SCAD ID, including faculty and staff, can reserve and/or simply pick up one of 100 bikes at three designated “priority” hubs and return it to several more racks placed throughout downtown and midtown. It’s cheap, too. The first four hours of the day are free, plenty of time to cruise from Montgomery Hall on 52nd Street to Foundations and grab lunch at Art’s in between. After the grace period, it’s $4 an hour, with a max daily rate of $20. Also, for the first time in the college’s history, incoming freshman aren’t allowed to bring cars to campus, and none of those enterprising industrial design students have invented a jetpack yet. SCAD’s 24-hour bus system already has them covered, but the transportation department wanted to offer more options. “The idea came out of an initiative from President Wallace to find alternative ways for students to travel around campus,” says Executive Director of Campus Safety and Security, John Buckovich, who also oversees transportation and adds that the department will be launching an Ubertype program this year as well. Most importantly, bicycling around Savannah is one of the purest pleasures the city has to offer, especially when expe16 riencing the schadenfreude derived from

watching drivers lined up around the squares, hunting for a place to park. “You don’t have to risk being late because you’re circling around looking for a space. You can just roll up to the building and go to class,” concurs Buckovich with a reminder that every rider needs to wear a helmet. (Every SCAD student spends time with Buckovich learning about staying safe in Savannah, and bike share riders are required to wear helmets and observe traffic rules. ) Perhaps the most attractive reason for the program’s instant popularity is the bikes themselves. Simply put, the rides are dope, a whole lot sturdier and fancier than anything most college kids can afford. Blazing yellow with black Kevlar saddles, they come equipped with a U-lock, bell, bungee cord basket and a light that’s programmed to turn on automatically via a solar panel behind the seat. Puncture resistant tires handle potholes like a dream, and the three-speed belt drive means never having to sit on the side of the road trying to fix a dirty chain. To offer these top-of-the-line models, there was no need to reinvent the wheel. SCAD partnered with Gotcha Bikes out of Charleston, a company that has designed bike share programs for several other universities around the country. Gotcha Bikes in turn uses the technology developed by Social Bicycles, a Brooklyn-based outfit that allows users operate the simple interface and managers to track each bike through an in-built GPS system. (If a bike is left standing too long or starts

traveling more than 35mph, it sends an alert that it’s been stolen or abandoned.) This ingenious simplicity is responsible for a surge in American bike sharing programs in the last few years, according to public bike use expert Russell Meddin. “It’s a very convenient way to enjoy bicycling without owning a bike, especially if you live in a dense city. Who wants to take a bike up four flights of stairs?” asks Meddin, who has catalogued and mapped thousands of bike sharing systems around the world. “With bike sharing, there’s no hassle, no storage, no worry about someone stealing it. Once you’ve docked it, it’s not your problem.” Meddin lives in Philadelphia but knows the urban plan of dozens of cities and college campuses around the country in terms of their bike share viability, including Savannah. “I think SCAD’s program is going to be very successful,” he says, adding that the City of Savannah’s stalled public bike sharing program could benefit from a deeper look at the model. While SCAD Bike Share is currently limited to those affiliated with the college, there are advantages to Savannah citizens in the form of freed-up parking spaces and better-educated riders. As of this week’s launch, officers from SCMPD have been tapped by the college to teach new freshman about bike safety, another benefit touted by Buckovich. “It helps build that relationship between SCAD students and the city at large.” CS

Dogcatcher = Idea Catcher New Chatham County Animal Services head makes push for transparency and a ‘happier place’ BY ORLANDO MONTOYA

SAVANNAHPODCAST.COM

I ONCE adopted a little mutt named Gypsy. The short and brown furry thing with a funny nose lived up to her wandering name the day after she moved in. I visited the pound every day for weeks hoping she would show up. The hardest part about losing her was scanning those cages, looking at all those scared faces. I had to ask why I cared about Gypsy and not those others—destined for—for what? Well, that’s the thing about the pound, right? We know what happens to lost dogs there. Or do we? It seems there’s a lot of mystery about what really goes on at Chatham County Animal Services, formerly called Animal Control, on Sallie Mood Drive. The agency’s new director, Kerry Sirevicius—pronounced “sir vicious”—wants to open the curtains and give people new ways of thinking about the county shelter. Chatham officials recently hired Sirevicius after deciding to “re-county-fy” the animal control agency. Previously, it was managed by the city under Metro Police. “One of the first things we need to do is make this a much happier place for people to come,” she says. “I think that most people don’t want to come to the animal shelter because they say ‘It’s the pound. It’s sad.’ And so they’re not likely to come here first.” She’s right about that. The squat building has a pall about it. Looking for my lost dog was the only experience that I ever had with Animal Services before I met Sirevicius. I suspect many other people have similar experiences. We only go to the shelter when something bad happens. The gate is open. She ran out the door. Where is she? Then there’s what happens to unwanted pets. We have to talk about it. As a public safety net shelter, Animal Services must accept all animals—some sick, some old, some mean. They release about 80% of their 6,000+ annual intakes. But the whole process is opaque. Servicius says she’s committed to increasing transparency and facilitating adoptions. “We want to publish those [numbers] monthly so everyone can see the release rate and understand exactly the reasons

The agency’s new director, Kerry Sirevicius — pronounced “sir vicious” — wants to give new ways of thinking about the shelter.

animals are euthanized, exactly how many are transferred to the rescue organizations,” she says. “That’s one of my first orders of business.” She wants new software to do this. You might recall a software glitch led county officials to rebuff reports of a “mass euthanasia” earlier this year. The episode hurt many feelings. I also asked her about the misunderstood “five day stray hold.” I thought it was a ticking clock on death. Sirevicius says it’s more like the time Animal Services must hold a stray. After that, a veterinarian will assess the animal. Most are made available for adoption and to rescue organizations. For those reasons and more, she encourages use of pet collars. “There is no set day that animals are going to be euthanized,” she says. “If they’re of sound health and temperament, those are the animals that we’re trying to save every day.” And that’s what I get from Sirevicius —an energy for new ideas—like partnerships, community events and pet training certifications—all aimed at facilitating adoptions. Simply put, this dog catcher is an idea hatcher. Her own pets, a dog named Dexter and a cat named Pow Pow, ground her. She opted not to go to law school for this kind of work! “It just seems as though I was always drawn to the needs of animals,” she says of her career choice. “It’s something that’s grown and flourished inside me.” CS


So you want to adopt a pet? Advice for apartmentdwelling freshmen who want a furry companion BY JIM MOREKIS

jim@connectsavannah.com

THE FIRST YEAR of college is sometimes full of bad ideas. One of them might be getting a pet. “There’s so much that changes in your life that freshman year,” says Lisa Scarbrough, director of Coastal Pet Rescue. “You’re still trying to figure out your class schedule, much less trying to figure out how to take care of the new huge responsibility of a pet,” she says. “You’re just getting used to a whole new lifestyle where your parents aren’t around to remind you of things.” That said, a lot of college freshmen who don’t live in the dorms will nonetheless decide to adopt a pet. Locally, there are three main places to adopt a pet, outside of private sales: Chatham County Animal Services (often still called Animal Control), the Humane Society of Greater Savannah, and Scarbrough’s group, Coastal Pet Rescue. If you absolutely insist on adopting a pet your first year in college, Scarbrough has some important advice. “Don’t look just for a pet you think is cute and looks pretty,” she says.

For example, everybody loves Huskies. Thing is, Huskies are very energetic, very intelligent, and need a lot of interaction. “Everybody loves a Husky puppy until it grows up, and then you find out how much exercise and attention it needs,” Scarbrough says. “If they’re left alone, they tend to get into mischief. Things happen. And I say this as someone who has had several Husky mixes over the years.” All too often, the energetic, higher maintenance breeds, like Huskies and German Shorthair Pointers, then end up in local shelters as their owners find out they aren’t capable of devoting enough time and attention to them. Coastal Pet Rescue offers adoption counseling, so that prospective dog owners can find the best fit for their lifestyle. Another key bit of advice Scarbrough offers is, “It’s better to adopt from a foster home. You get a lot more information about that specific animal, and it’s a much easier transition for the animal.” A pet from a shelter can be, to put it bluntly, a crapshoot. “You won’t know if the animal is housebroken, or if it loves to start barking at 2 a.m.,” she says. Scarbrough, whose group works very closely placing animals in foster homes, urges first-time adult pet owners to come volunteer with the shelter first. “You get a chance to get your feet wet with what it means to be totally responsible for the pets on your shift. And you get the fun part of cleaning up after them, to see if you’re really ready for all that.” CS For more info go to: Chatham County Animal Services: animalservices.chathamcounty.org Humane Society of Greater Savannah: www.humanesocietysav.org Coastal Pet Rescue: coastalpetrescue.org

ONE OF THE greatest joys about being in college is going out. And one of the most valuable lessons you’ll learn in college is how to go out safely — especially in Savannah, which you may have heard isn’t exactly what you’d call crime-free. You’re probably going to spend a lot of nights out downtown, so it’s for your own good that you know how to be safe. I’m no stranger at going out, but I’m also no expert at giving safety advice. For more guidance, I turned to Kesha GibsonCarter, the executive director over at the Rape Crisis Center, who gave me some excellent advice that applies to everyone. Always be in some sort of group. Whether you’re trying to have a chill night or bring your entire squad along, it’s a good idea for you to bring at least one friend out with you. People by themselves are a prime target, so don’t play yourself. Pay attention to the friends in your group and make sure everyone gets home safely. If you have a friend who tends to slink away, keep a close eye on her and check in often. If you rode together in a group, make sure that anyone who’s not going back home with you has a way to get there. Don’t ever let anyone walk home alone, even if they say they want to. “Make sure you always have a ride home or a plan to walk home with a friend or roommate,” urges Gibson-Carter. “Make a plan before you go out.” It’s tricky to avoid being alone sometimes, so if you need to walk alone, carry pepper spray or your keys. Keep them in your hands, ready to use, the entire time. Never accept a drink from anyone else unless you watched the bartender make it. Getting roofied at a party sounds like something your parents made up to scare you. But it is not unrealistic, and you should be aware that it can happen to you. I know a lot of girls, myself included, who have been offered drinks by boys we just met, and when we turn them down, they get angry and defensive—“What, you think I drugged it?” Actually, yeah, I do. These days, drugging someone’s drink can be as easy as dropping an Ambien into it. If you’re distracted or already drunk, you might not notice. The easiest solution is to pay strict attention to your drink.

Situational awareness is the key, on or off campus.

“Don’t accept a drink from anyone unless you can watch the bartender pour it,” suggests Gibson-Carter. “If your drink is out of your sight, even for a few seconds, get a new one. Don’t share drinks, don’t drink from punch bowls or open containers.” Always be aware of your surroundings. It’s hard when you’re tipsy, but keep an eye out for anything shady going on, like someone who’s following you around or who keeps staring you down. This isn’t only for girls! A male friend of mine was once followed by an angry-looking man on his way to the bar. The angry man stood outside the bar for the nearly two hours we were there, and we didn’t leave until he dipped. If you’re feeling uneasy about a situation, don’t keep it to yourself—discreetly tell a friend or the bouncer. “Trust your instincts,” Gibson-Carter advises. “If something doesn’t feel right to you, leave and get to a safe place immediately.” Uber everywhere. Parking downtown can be difficult to figure out, especially if you’re new and don’t know about sweep zones. Uber eliminates the parking difficulty, as well as any chance of you driving home drunk. Honestly, there is no reason you shouldn’t call an Uber—you can split the fee on the app, the prices are relatively low when there’s no surge, and it’s safe. I have several friends who are hesitant to take Ubers by themselves, which is a valid fear, but did you know that Uber

drivers must stay above a specific rating or they get removed from the app? If your Uber driver seems sketchy, call a friend while you’re riding and give the driver a low rating as soon as you’re home safely. Go out with a full battery. Bring a portable charger if you have to, but never let your phone die while you’re out. “You never know when you’ll need it,” says Gibson-Carter. Girls, don’t be afraid to give a guy the brush-off. People are weird, man, and rejection stings. I myself am a people-pleaser and feel guilty when turning people down. But if a guy is coming on too strong to you and won’t leave you alone, you have every right to ask them to leave you alone. It might feel rude, but it’s better than mincing your words and putting yourself in a situation you don’t want. There’s also no need to be rude about it—you can firmly but politely inform them that you’re not interested. I suck at confrontation, so my favorite trick is to grab my closest girl friend, ask her to accompany me to the bathroom, and leave. This trick is best practiced at bars with multiple rooms, like the Rail or Social, where you can disappear into the street and homeboy is none the wiser. But for a single-room bar, like the Jinx or El-Rocko, being direct is required. “I’m sorry, we’re in the middle of a discussion” works well. So does the old “I have a boyfriend” line. CS


COLLEGE STUDENT GUIDE ULTIMATE FRISBEE

THE ULTIMATE THRILL

Ultimate Frisbee is an accessible and fun way to get involved in college sports BY JIM MOREKIS

jim@connectsavannah.com

OK, I’ll work with you on that. Until then maybe we’ll just have you play defense for awhile, and cover somebody,” he says. You can join the Fall Ultimate League by going to the signup website at ultimatecentral.com/en_us/e/supfall2016. Or to get a taste of the game, come to the regular pickup games in Forsyth Park, which happen Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Once the Fall Ultimate League gets its rosters set, pickup games in Forsyth will move to Thursday and Sunday, with league play Sundays and Tuesdays. In addition to Buckley’s wealth of coaching and playing experience, the Savannah squad boasts three players on the pro-level Ultimate team in Jacksonville. Buckley says he still loves the game as much as ever and still works just as hard, but times have changed. “The other day we were in the middle of a game, and four or five guys on the sideline who go to Armstrong all of a sudden got up and started walking around on the field. They were playing Pokemon Go,” Buckley laughs. Buckley says there’s still plenty of time to sign up for league play. “If they want to play, we’ll make it happen. We may even have an additional draft after the teams are set.” CS

WHILE THERE are some exciting college teams playing in Savannah, the team sports experience is out of reach for most college students here. That’s where Ultimate Frisbee comes in. Anyone who’s played knows how addictive and accessible it is for men and women. With rules that are a near-perfect, noncontact blend of football and basketball, and dispensing with the need for referees with its unique focus on “The Spirit of the Game,” Ultimate is as demanding as you want it to be. Savannah’s David Buckley —known simply as “Wolf” in Ultimate circles — is a legit OG in the world of Ultimate. One of the godfathers of the sport in the Southeast, he has played at the highest levels of competition both as a college student himself and in the Masters, i.e., over 30, category. For years Buckley has strived to keep the sport strong here. His latest effort is the Savannah Ultimate Project’s new Fall Ultimate League, now forming an initial slate of four local teams to compete through this year, culminating in a tournament. “In Ultimate there’s such a great sense of camaraderie on the field. You can be very physical and skilled at the top level, or To sign up for the Savannah Ultimate you can just come play and have fun, even Project Fall Ultimate League, go to if you’re brand new,” Buckley says. “We’ll get some people out there who ultimatecentral.com/en_us/e/supfall2016 can’t even throw a backhand, and I’ll say,

Why don’t Americans eat more offal?

Why do so many Americans only eat muscles of animals and not organs? —Dan IT’S TRUE: since the dawn of the republic, Americans have been scarfing down animal flesh in quantities that have left Europeans envious and maybe a little grossed out, yet we’ve been strangely squeamish about dining on animal organs. Sure, regional cuisines do incorporate the likes of chitterlings (better known as chitlins) or mountain oysters (testicles, to non-ranchers), and even the least adventurous among us can handle turkey giblets in their Thanksgiving gravy. But for all the recent talk of nose-to-tail dining among

the foodie set, when it’s time to make dinner, organ meat remains as hard a sell in the U.S. as the metric system. Margaret Mead herself confronted Dan’s question over 70 years ago, at a time when the nation’s sustenance might have depended on getting the correct answer. The U.S. was preparing for war with the Axis powers, meaning a whole bunch of hungry kids in uniform would have dibs on the steaks and chops—already in limited circulation from many Americans’ perspective, what with the Great Depression still peskily impoverishing millions. Heading into a potentially decade-long conflict, the government concluded that substitute protein was needed pronto to nourish those on the home front. Mead, our preeminent cultural anthropologist, was asked to chair the newly-formed Committee on Food Habits. As detailed in a 2002 paper by Brian Wansink, now an eating-behavior expert at Cornell, Mead’s committee of topshelf social scientists was convinced you couldn’t change longstanding dietary norms by just barking “Eat more calf’s liver or the Nazis have already won!” Instead, argued psychologist Kurt Lewin, you had to figure out why the eating public was so offal-avoidant to begin with. Ensuing research showed that, for one,

lots of people simply thought of organ meat as scraps and had no idea how to cook it—the average American didn’t eat offal, in other words, because the average American had never eaten offal. Familiarizing homemakers with offal’s nutritional value and disseminating recipes through the press, the committee believed, would quickly remedy these matters. The socioeconomic stigma attached to offal was a whole other problem. Many Americans, it appeared, thought organ meats were what poor country folks ate, and with good reason—organ meats were what poor country folks ate. Said stigma likely had a racial component too. Chitlins, for example, made from pork intestines, first became a staple of African-American diets in colonial times, when prosperous whites dined on the choice hog meat and left their slaves to make do with the guts. Mead’s team had to finesse all this. Rather than pushing to upgrade unfamiliar meats to everyday status, they encouraged homemakers to incorporate them into meal planning as a source of variety; offal was accordingly rebranded as “variety meats,” a durable euphemism still employed by the U.S. meat industry. When the war ended sooner than expected, though, victory extinguished the dream of an offal-rich American diet.

In a wealthy nation with plenty of room to raise edible critters, if the inhabitants don’t want to eat the livers, no one’s gonna make them. With state and federal agencies ponying up billions each year in subsidies, meat stays cheap. Since today’s offal partisans can no longer rally around the flag, many focus on nutritional value. Paleo-diet supporters stress offal’s high protein content, but it’s an uphill battle. It also doesn’t help that organs resemble, well, body parts: any steak slapped on a plate looks like dinner, while a lovingly presented calf heart may suggest an autopsy. And exposure to offal on a travelogue show called (e.g.) Bizarre Foods may not expand viewers’ horizons so much as reinforce their sense of organ meat as a culinary eccentricity. On the other hand, Americans are just fine with sausages, those seasoned grab bags of animal miscellany, and particularly fond of hot dogs—which can, if labeled per USDA regulations, contain as much as 85 percent organ meat. So maybe the trick of getting us to eat offal has already been managed: grind those guts into a paste, squeeze it into an edible tube, and serve it on a bun. CS BY CECIL ADAMS

Non-fatal Shootings Two Officers disciplined in response to shots fired call

The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department has disciplined two Islands Precinct officers for their actions and policy violations stemming from a “shots fired” call. On Monday, July 25, 2016 at 11:39 p.m. hours two officers were dispatched to a “shots fired” call in the area of the 2100 block of Mason Dr. The caller indicated they heard several shots fired near a nearby construction site for the future Juliette Gordon Low Elementary School. “The officers arrived on scene at 11:42 p.m. and spoke with both ear witnesses and two eye witnesses to the incident. All the gates around the construction site were locked with chains and padlocks,” the department reports. “Officers looked through the gate but

did not see any signs of forced entry, shell casings or any other evidence. The officers then contacted Board of Education via dispatch believing the construction site was their jurisdiction. Dispatch issued a look out for the vehicle.” Just before 6 a.m. the next morning construction workers found Raymond Williams, 46, deceased inside the secured site. Williams’ death was ruled a homicide; he died as result of being shot. The case remains under investigation. On August 17, 2016 one officer was terminated, the second officer was given a 30-day suspension without pay after his appeal. The officers were disciplined based on violations of SCMPD conduct regulations and for not having their body cameras turned on. “The officers did not perform to a reasonable diligence standard in an obvious critical incident,” police say.

Jefferson Street shooting ruled a homicide

Detectives seek the suspect or suspects involved in the Aug. 20 shooting of two female victims, which resulted in one victim succumbing to her injuries on Aug. 25. Detectives are following leads. Stephanie Smith, 30, was pronounced deceased on Aug. 23, but remained on life support

stolen, however, the suspect did attempt to pry open the register before fleeing the scene at the sound of an alarm. The same day, employees at a business in the 300 block of MLK Blvd. noticed their business had been burglarized overnight. Detectives believe the same suspect is responsible. The suspect is described a black male with a bald haircut and receding hair line. He appears to be 6 feet tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds.

Detectives seek a man suspected of burglarizing several businesses. The first incident occurred on April 5 around midnight at an automobile repair shop in the 2500 block of Habersham Street. On Aug. 18, a suspect entered a restaurant in the 1800 block of Habersham Street at 5 a.m. Nothing was reported

Detectives ask the community’s help in identifying a man suspected of stealing credit cards from a victim’s purse at her work place in the 4700 block of Waters Avenue on July 22. The unidentified man made several purchases on a credit card taken from the woman’s purse. Detectives have obtained surveillance images of the man exiting Target after attempting a purchase of over $700. The suspect also utilized one of the victim’s credit cards at a gas station the same day. The suspect is described as a white male of average height and weight, possibly in his 20s or 30s.

NEWS & OPINION NEWS OF THE WEIRD Outstanding in Their Fields

The recently concluded Olympics included a few of the more obscure athletic endeavors (such as dressage for horses and steeplechase for humans), but U.S. colleges compete in even less-heralded “sports,” such as wood chopping, rock climbing, fishing and broomball. University of Alabama, 2015 national football champions, dominates also in the 280-school bass-fishing competition, and New York’s Paul Smith College’s 5,000-student campus raucously cheers its championship log-splitting team (against seven other schools). And Ohio State whipped another football powerhouse, Nebraska, in icebased broomball.

Why? Because We Can, That’s Why

-- We now have computer or cellphone apps to, for example, analyze the quality of one’s tongue-kissing; alert you when your zipper is inadvertently down; make a refrigerator also be a stereo and photo album; notify you when you need to drink more water; check the male-female ratio at local bars so, if you’re on the prowl, you can plan your evening efficiently; and reveal whether your partner has had someone else in bed while you were away (via differential contours of the mattress). And then, in August, the creators of the new “South Park” virtual reality game announced that they had figured out how to release a “fart” smell that is crucial to game-players when they put on the VR mask. -- Inexplicable: Pizza Hut announced in August that it had finally mastered the technology to turn its cardboard delivery boxes into customers’ workable disk-jockey turntables and will make them available shortly in five stores in the United Kingdom. (Each box has two record decks, a cross-fader, pitch and cue controls, and the ability to rewind.) Music stars P Money and DJ Vectra are featured, and the boxes will sync via Bluetooth to phones and computers.

Recurring Themes

(1) Overenthusiastic Insurance Fraud: A 30-year-old woman, “LTN,” has so far escaped prosecution in Hanoi, Vietnam -because her insurance fraud caper already cost her a third, each, of her left hand and left foot. Those are the parts police said she paid a friend the equivalent of $2,000 to chop off to claim a $157,000 disability- policy payout, according to an August dispatch by Agence France-Presse. (2) Husband Who Needs to Believe: Police in Hartselle, Alabama, arrested Sarah Shepard for soliciting a hit man to kill her husband, Richard (after police set up an undercover sting, even working with Richard to stage his fake death to convince her that the job was completed). Now, Richard is trying to help Sarah. In August, he asked her judge to reduce her bail, certain that she had been “entrapped” because, for one thing, she could hardly manage a grocery list, much less a murder.

The Passing Parade

(1) A traffic officer in Guelph, Ontario, pulled over a 35-year-old motorist on July 11 traveling 67 mph (108 km/h) in a 45 mph zone -- at night on a stretch with no highway lights and no headlights on his vehicle. The stopped driver was given citations even though he pointed out that he was watching the road with a flashlight on his head, held in place by straps. (2) Twentythree local-government bureaucrats in Boscotrecase, Italy, were disciplined in July after being caught shirking duties, including by falsifying the time clock. It was unclear whether the 23 included the two “mystery” workers photographed punching in for work while wearing cardboard boxes on their heads.

Savannah psych-rockers Niche channel the tapestry-clad walls of the ‘70s with smoky vocals, dueling guitar leads, experimental dynamics, and bold choruses.

Savannah’s punk princes Cray Bags throw a raucously unpredictable show of killer grimy, slimy, pedal-to-the-metal fuzzed-out punk rock. Wondering what frontman Josh Sterno’s going to swing from, climb on, hide under, or lasso his mic cable with is all a part of the fun. The four-piece is releasing its second album, Beauty Love, on King Pizza Records, and you can preorder the cassette now for five smackers via the King Pizza Records site. In the meantime, give the fuzzy DIY affair a stream on Bandcamp.

With boom-bap beats and thoughtful command, Connect Savannah’s reader-voted “Best HipHop/Rap Artist” recently caught the attention of rapper/spoken word artist Sage Francis. Kedrick Mack (Dope KNife) is slated to release a full-length album, NineteenEightyFour, on Francis’s Strange Famous Records label. When he’s not cranking out new singles and videos, you can catch Mack making his own beats, running the Dope Sandwich Records & Tapes label, producing, discovering and cultivating new talent, shooting and directing music videos, drawing, and much more.

Hodges’ latest release, “Savannah Weather,” manages to be both super-catchy and coolly smooth. The cut is the first single from a new EP produced by Aphelion Records. Check out the accompanying video on YouTube.

WET SOCKS – “Library Card” (FROM DRIPS, RETRO

(FROM PILLARS OF ASH, RELAPSE RECORDS, 2016)

FUTURIST RECORDS, 2014)

Savannah’s metal scene is world-renowned. Though Savannah’s 2016 rock scene skews more toward punk these days, our swamps produced the likes of Baroness, Kylesa, and reigning hometown heroes Black Tusk. The power trio has been at it for a decade, wielding a hotly-fused sound that shows off its members’ punk roots and adds a touch of sludge and stoner metal. Catch them live when you can.

OK, so psych-tinged garage rockers Wet Socks have newer material than “Library Card,” a single off Drips (“Best Local Album of 2014” according to Connect Savannah readers), but there’s really no better tune to start off the school year than their naughty ode to the stacks. If you want something recent, check out four songs from the “Trash Talk” EP, a compilation released by Dumpster Tapes Records.

Jeff Zagers creates meditative, experimental songs steeped in the dust-jacketed origins of pop music. Here, he re-envisions Percy Sledge’s classic “Dark End of the Street.” It’s available on Zagers’ album All For the Love of Sunshine, a collection of American songbook covers driven by rich vocal melodies, drum machines, guitars, synths, and saxophone.

VELVET CARAVAN – “Margaret” (FROM ACOUSTIC IN NATURE, SELFRELEASED, 2014)

Savannah’s gypsy-jazz quintet Velvet Caravan is making waves throughout the world. With playfulness and gusto, these fellows deliver an unforgettable concert that would make Django proud.

traditional American old-time music. Crowned “Best Local Folk Band/ Artist” by Connect Savannah readers, the four-piece is always a blast live.

WELCOME to Savannah, a town that will crowdsurf you across the room, put tears in your eyes with raw storytelling and soulful melodies, pull you on the dance floor to two-step to country music, and quench your musical thirst with all the artistic passion this weird-and-proud town can muster. This is a great city for a musician and a music fan, and we’re glad you’ve chosen it as your new home.

Know your rights

Savannah’s alcohol ordinance has undergone some recent changes. As a responsible musical citizen--particularly if you’re under 21 years old--it’s important to have a clear picture of how things work in our venues and bars. The way things work now—and the way it’s been for a decade—is that, if a show is happening in a bar, people who are under 21 and cannot legally consume alcohol are not allowed entry. Since Savannah’s a town with numerous colleges and a military base, this inhibits a significant percentage of live music supporters. Luckily, we have several great DIY and all-ages venues throughout Savannah that cater to folks who can’t enter the bars. However, change is coming for bars that want to open their doors to a wider audience. On August 18, Savannah City Council approved changes to the alcohol ordinance. Beginning January 1, 2017, venues can apply for a specific license that would allow folks aged 18-20 to enter the establishment while there is live music being

played (DJs and karaoke aren’t included). Read: this doesn’t mean that, starting in 2017, anyone can stroll into a bar when they hear a band playing. The keyword here is “license.” It’s not a widespread ruling that applies to every establishment in Savannah. Some venues aren’t going to apply for one, and that’s all right—it’s up to the business owner to decide whether or not they want to apply for the license and submit the required plan detailing how they’ll prevent underage drinking. So, given an establishment secures a license and moves forward, people aged 18-20 can arrive, pay their cover, head inside, and enjoy the concert, scream their lungs out, dance all night, buy all the merch, make long-lasting memories, and keep the cycle going until River Street to Victory Drive transforms into one nonstop musical utopia (I mean, hopefully). Time will tell whether or not businesses will go for the change; however, the ordinance changes also make way for new businesses to open and reach a new audience. How can we keep our scene growing into an inclusive place that cultivates local talent and welcomes touring acts?

Bean, a local coffee shop off Forsyth Park; the SCAD alum-owned Foxy Loxy Print Gallery & Cafe (a crisp fall evening on their patio with a Mexican Mocha and live music is perfection); The Foundery Coffee Pub next to SCAD’s Anderson Hall (the spacious coffee shop hosts the occasional acoustic or rock show); Sulfur Studios, a gallery/studio space/event space; studio/ venue Dollhouse Productions; beachside Tybee Post Theater; vintage shop and occasional venue House of Strut; and DIY queer safe(r) space QuoLab. Savannah boasts a rich DIY/house show culture, so keep an eye out for posters, flyers, and social media posts for under-the-radar shows. Organizations like Coastal Rock Productions and Dad Joke promote many all-ages shows, and First Friday Art March offers several stages at their monthly celebration.

Get ready for another year of beautiful music from the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. Featuring works by Rossini, Sortomme, and Beethoven, the performance is an excellent introduction for folks who haven’t experienced the magic of the orchestra and a welcome return for established fans. Gioachino Rossini’s Overture to La gazza ladra (The Thieving Magpie) shows off the work of one of the most celebrated opera composers of all time. Sortomme’s violin concerto makes its world premiere at the event, performed by renowned violinist Elmar Oliveira (Boston Symphony, London Philharmonic). Oliveira is the only American violinist to win the Gold Medal at Moscow’s Tchaikovsky International Competition, so the audience is truly in for a rare treat. For the big finish, it’s Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2, the “Eroica” (the “Heroic”). Originally titled “Bonaparte,” the piece is considered a turning point in musical history since its premiere in 1805. If you’re interested in seeing all the Philharmonic has to offer this year, look into purchasing a subscription package. The Philharmonic Experience package includes tickets for all eight orchestral/choral concerts and half-off passes to all six chamber music series concerts. Series 8 gets you tickets to all eight orchestra/ chorus concerts for 15% off. The Pick 5 package allows patrons to choose any five orchestral/ chorus concerts for a 10% discount. Lastly, the Flex 3 package lets patrons pick any three orchestra/chorus concerts for a 5% discount. The chamber music series package includes tickets to all six chamber concerts for the price of five. And, of course, tickets can be purchased for individual events, but we suggest getting those seats soon—the Philharmonic’s audience continues to grow, and fans better act quickly to guarantee their spot. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 7:30 P.M., ALL-AGES, $16-100 VIA TICKETS.SAVANNAHBOXOFFICE.COM

On their latest album, Songs for the Universe (2014), the band employed pitch shifts and frequencies that are considered to be harmonious with the human body. The band of vegans value a respect for our planet and its healing powers. Keller Williams fans won’t want to miss “Little Douglas,” a collaboration that features the guitar virtuoso on bass and backing vocals. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 8 P.M., $20, ALL-AGES

SAVANNAH PHILHARMONIC

MUSIC THE BAND PAGE

PINK MEXICO, TWISTY CATS, KEWL @EL-ROCKO

Burger Records artists Pink Mexico are a trio of melodic rockers wielding fuzz pedals and sass. Robert Preston, the brains behind the project, may be a familiar face to Savannah Stopover fans, having played drums with Brooklyn’s Shilpa Ray. Pink Mexico’s Burger debut, Fool, was released this June, and boasts hefty guitar drenched in reverb with surf tendencies and a certain seasoned maturity that’s refreshing to discover in the garage-pop scene. Savannah’s Twisty Cats and Kewl share the bill. Kewl is the solo endeavor of Wet Socks drummer John Zimmerman. Frontman Zimmerman is supported by an array of familiar faces, including Daniel Lynch (Cray Bags, Sunglow, Greta O. and the Toxic Shock) on drums, Derek Lynch (Cray Bags, Greta O. and the Toxic Shock) on guitar and Samford Justice (Breakers) on guitar. Zimmerman has a number of recordings as Kewl to dig into on Bandcamp (kewl.bandcamp.com). WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 7, 10 P.M., FREE, 21+

COLLEGE STUDENT GUIDE THE SAV ART SCENE

GETTING INVOLVED IN THE LOCAL ART SCENE Our resident art columnist gives her sage advice BY KAYLA GOGGIN

artrisesavannah.org

ONE OF the best things about Savannah is how much art exists here. Whether you’re looking to SCAD for exposure to internationally renowned contemporary artists, to the Telfair for academically-celebrated classics or to the Starland district for local flavor, your tastes are sure to be satiated. Here are some tips to help you immerse yourself in all the visual art Savannah has to offer.

Engage on social media.

Before you even step outside your door, you can get a look at what’s going on about town thanks to the wonders of social media. Check the hashtag #art912 to start. Initially created by Telfair Museums, the city’s artists and arts advocacy organizations quickly latched on and started contributing content under the #art912 moniker. Now, there’s a veritable library of

Discovering Savannah’s art offerings online is great, but you owe it to yourself to see them in person too. images on Instagram to help you get oriented in terms of the types of work being created in artist’s studios and the artsfocused events on the horizon. Also be sure to follow the people, places and organizations making art happen in the city so you’ll receive notifications, invitations and updates from them. Telfair Museums, Sulfur Studios, Art Rise Savannah (full disclosure: I am the Managing Director of Art Rise Savannah), and NonFiction Gallery all have great online presences. (Bonus: Check out @scadpaint on Instagram for a taste of the latest up-andcoming painting exhibitions in town.)

Get outside your comfort zone.

Discovering Savannah’s art offerings online is great, but you owe it to yourself to see them in person too. Luckily, a handy

framework for stepping outside your comfort zone exists in the First Friday Art March. On the first Friday of every month from 6–9pm, the Starland District opens itself up as a playground for locals and tourists alike who want an up-close and personal taste of the arts. The Art March functions as a self-guided tour of the district’s art galleries and local businesses, paving a neat route for you through the night’s opening receptions, pop-up shows, musical performances and more. Of course, you don’t have to wait for an Art March night to get out and see what’s happening in the galleries around town. Pick up ARC Savannah’s ART MAP SAV at pretty much any gallery in town and plan your own route for the day. The map includes over one hundred galleries and art

spaces across downtown, midtown and the islands.

Find your people.

Exploring the art scene is always more fun if you have someone to do it with. If you’re an artist or art enthusiast, one place to meet like-minded folks is at the Savannah Artist Collective (13 E. 39th Street). The Collective meets on a regular basis to hold life drawing sessions, panel discussions on issues like “How to Host a Studio Visit”, skill-share workshops and more. It’s one of the few informal, open spaces in town for artists to come together, share art and information and form collaborative relationships. Sulfur Studios also occasionally offers workshops, the City of Savannah’s Cultural Arts Department holds great classes for those interested in learning crafts like metalworking, and (for those who go for the super informal) Abe’s on Lincoln hosts a regular “Drink ‘n Draw” night for artists of all levels to meet and doodle together.

The monthly First Friday Art March is a great way for everyone to get familiar with the local art scene and have a lot of fun at the same time.

Volunteer.

36

Whether you’re lending a hand at the Art March or getting behind-the-scenes access at a world-class textile symposium, local arts advocacy organizations always have spots available for interested volunteers. Look into docenting at one of Telfair Museums’ remarkable spaces, hosting one of ARC Savannah’s Artist Socials, or just offer to help get the word out about an event you’re excited for. Volunteering and making connections with those who are in the know is the best way to invest in the local art scene. When people invest, they’re less likely to leave and that’s what Savannah needs: fewer engaged citizens leaving for (what

they perceive to be) greener pastures. If you want to get involved in the art scene here, you deserve two different kinds of “thank you”s: one for giving a damn and another for contributing to the city’s cultural growth rather than its decay. It’s tough out here in Georgia for artists and arts organizations. Funding for the arts in our state amounts to about 9 cents per resident, compared to South Carolina’s 63 cents per resident and Alabama’s 82 cents. Economies suffer when the arts are allowed to atrophy so keep giving a damn, Savannah. Keep coming out, keep volunteering, stay involved. CS

CULTURE THEATRE

Collective Face is back? We’ll drink to that! Theatre ensemble’s season kicks off with The Savannah Sipping Society BY ANNA CHANDLER

anna@connectsavannah.com

SAVANNAH LOVES to sip. Whether it’s our go-cup gumption or the classic mint julep-porch-sittin’ cliché, The Hostess City loves to throw her doors open for company and promptly hand them a refreshing adult beverage. This weekend, Muse Arts Warehouse hosts the Lowcountry premiere of The Savannah Sipping Society. The first installment in The Collective Face Theatre Ensemble’s 2016-‘17 season promises plenty of laughs, liquor, and life lessons. “I was looking for something light, and I saw that the play debuted in the Atlanta area,” director and designer David I.L. Poole recalls. “I was like, ‘Oh, my goodness, why is this play not in Savannah when it’s called Savannah Sipping Society?!’” Proactive Poole contacted the authors Jones Hope Wooten, an prolific team of playwrights. The trio, dubbed “America’s Playwrights,” are behind such beloved Southern comedies as Dearly Departed, The Red Velvet Cake War, Always a Bridesmaid, and The Dixie Swim Club. Savannah Sipping Society is the latest in their lexicon of deep-fried, funnybone ticklin’ drama. “I compare it to Designing Women,”

Poole explains. “It’s four middle-aged women who are lonely and in Savannah. They’re mostly transplants to Savannah with the exception of one. They all get together for for happy hours.” The fab four initially meet at a yoga studio (the ladies, all new to the exercise form, are dismayed to find that “hot yoga” doesn’t mean “hot people yoga”). After sweating out all the toxins, the gals decide they’ve earned a cocktail, and their very first pop-up happy hour occurs. The Society includes Randa, a driven architect and workaholic who recently experienced a significant career derailment. Now, the independent woman is wondering what it is she really wants in life. Dot, a recent widow, was banking on a laidback retirement with her husband, but now, she must face a new beginning. Good ol’ Texan Marlafaye just lost her husband to the embrace of a young dental hygienist, and she’s in Savannah to get revenge on the cheater and his 23-year-old flame. Last but not least, Jinx, a nomadic newcomer to Savannah, is a hair stylist by day and life coach to the women by night. However, Jinx shows that she may need to take her own advice every once in awhile.

As they gush over cocktails on Randa’s Victorian veranda, the women bind together as they enter their own new beginnings, stumbling into misadventure every step of the way. “That’s where it all stems from,” Poole says. “They’re all looking to improve their lives, and they go on these adventures in Savannah. It’s a lot of fun, a lot of drinking and talking about men. It’s a hoot.” Virginia-based Jones Hope Wooten’s plays are set all over the South, and there were a couple of points in their scripted Savannah that Poole, through correspondence, altered to be more authentic to the area. “From their point of view, it captures our city and these four women’s lives,” he says. “It’s very sitcom-y. Think of it as a pilot episode of a sitcom set in Savannah.” From the initial hot yoga experiment, the ladies try “bucket list” activities together, including going to a Renaissance Fair, going salsa dancing, and (ack…) swimming in the Savannah River (kids, do not try this at home). “It’s got a Designing Women, Golden Girls, Sex and the City vibe to it,” Poole describes.

The Savannah Sipping Society stars Julie Kessler, Mickey Dodge, Laura Dutton, Casey Bessette, and Lynne Jones. Poole is excited to welcome Dutton back to Savannah. “She was away for about 15 years and moved back to the area, came out for audutions, and she’s hysterical.” Dodge, Kessler and Jones are Collective Face Theatre Ensemble members, and Bessette is a SCAD graduate student. There are plenty of opportunities to see Savannah Sipping Society, running Friday, September 9 to September 25. Enjoy a champagne reception catered by Joe’s Homemade Café on opening night. On September 21, it’s a special Ladies’ Night, so round up the girls and head to Muse. “This is a great way to begin our season,” Poole affirms. “It’s a fun-filled play and people have a great time.” CS

OPENINGS & RECEPTIONS

EQUALIZATION — Jeff Markowsky utilizes the modernist technique of “taping,” which equalizes that flatness of the picture plane and plays with the illusion of depth through the vertical grid, emphasizing the humid and arid nature of Savannah’s environment. Reception Friday, Sep. 16, 6-8pm. Gallery Espresso, 234 Bull St.

MYSTICAL ARTS OF TIBET: DREPUNG LOSELING MONASTERY SAND MANDALA RESIDENCY — The Tibetan Buddhist monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery return to the Jepson Center to create an exquisite sand mandala painting as part of a weeklong residency. This Tibetan Buddhist tradition involves the creation and destruction of a mandala made from colored sand. The sand mandala is ritually destroyed once it has been completed, and its accompanying ceremonies and presentation symbolize the Buddhist doctrinal belief in the transitory nature of material life. Sep. 13-18. telfair.org/jepson/. Jepson Center for the Arts, 207 West York St. TIBETAN MONKS OPENING CEREMONY — One of Savannah’s most popular art events, the Mystical Arts of Tibet returns as the Tibetan Monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery revisit the Jepson Center to create a sand mandala in the Eckburg Atrium during a weeklong residency. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the monks’ very first appearance at the Jepson Center. Free Tue., Sep. 13, 5-7 p.m. 912-790-8800. telfair.org/jepson/. Jepson Center for the Arts, 207 West York St.

CONTINUING EXHIBITS AFAR — The most recent work of acclaimed Brooklyn-based video artist, Janet Biggs. Created with the support of the museum, “Afar” depicts Biggs’ travels in the Afar Triangle, a geologically unstable but visually arresting desert region at the intersection of Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti, in Africa. Through Sep. 25. scadmoa.org/. SCAD Museum of Art, 601 Turner Blvd.

FACE TO FACE: AMERICAN PORTRAITS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION — Spanning the period from the American Revolution to World War II, the paintings in this exhibition demonstrate the broad range of American portraiture found in Telfair’s permanent collection.

All proceeds from ‘Art in Action’ at Kobo benefit the Rape Crisis Center, reception on Saturday

ART QUILTERS OF THE LOW COUNTRY — The Quilters is a cooperative of award-wining fabric artists who design, quilt, exhibit and have a passion to teach their craft. Their work ranges from the large and abstract to intimate renderings of natural scenes and flora and fauna. They are Ron Hodge, Donna Stankiewicz, Shaaron Thomas, Peg Weschke and Jody Wigton. Through Sep. 30. hospicesavannah.org/. Hospice Savannah, 1352 Eisenhower Dr. BLACK AND WHITE: PRINTWORK BY TORI POINT, STRAWBERRY MOTH AND PAPER JAM PRESS — Toni Point is a Mississippi based artist who combines her love of a modern and minimalist aesthetic with interesting patterns and tribal influences.

Foxy Loxy Cafe, 1919 Bull St.

CORNELIA PRATT — Training in traditional oil painting techniques has led Cornelia Pratt to paint still lifes and landscapes in a realistic, yet painterly style. Through Sep. 30. savannahjea.org. Jewish Educational Alliance, 5111 Abercorn St. DISPARITY — An examination of the relationship between imagery and the written word; using the form of the hand painted sign Jossim examines personal, political and social topics. Through Sep. 30. sentientbean. com. The Sentient Bean, 13 East Park Ave. ELVIS AT 21: PHOTOGRAPHS BY ALFRED WERTHEIMER — Taken during the year Elvis Presley turned 21, Alfred Wertheimer’s photographs are a remarkable visual record of rock ‘n’ roll’s most enduring figure. Through Oct. 2. telfair.org/jepson/. Jepson Center for the Arts, 207 West York St.

GESTALT: AN INSTALLATION BY CHRIS NITSCHE — Through early January, Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum will be presenting a large interactive installation by local artist and SCAD professor Chris Nitsche, and a selection of his preliminary sketches will be on display in the Museum atrium.

Museum admission is $9.00 Adults, discounts available, Children 5 and under Free. Free garden admission to view the installation. Ships of The Sea Museum, 41 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. HISTORIC COTTONS TO MODERN POLYESTERS: QUILTS FROM TELFAIR’S COLLECTION — Made from the rarest silks to the simplest cottons, corduroys, wools, and modern polyesters, Telfair Museums’ small but important collection of quilts are presented in Historic Cottons to Modern Polyesters. Ranging from early 19th-century examples of pieced patchwork, to an appliqué story quilt made in the 1980s, the exhibition spans nearly two centuries of quiltmaking.

The highs and lows, from Suicide Squad to Star Trek and beyond Best Impersonation: Ryan Gosling as Lou Costello in The Nice Guys. It’s only for one scene, but Gosling beautifully captures the sputtering routine beloved by Abbott & Costello fans everywhere. Worst Impersonation: Jared Leto as David Bowie in Suicide Squad. In interviews, Leto said he based his performance as The Joker on the mannerisms of the late Bowie. But there’s so little of the rock legend (like, 0%) in his portrayal that he might as well have stated he based his performance on Donald Trump or Mr. T or even Betty White. Most Logical Marquee Double Feature: Lights Out and The Darkness. Most Logical Marquee Triple Feature: Weiner, Wiener-Dog and Sausage Party. Best Juvenile Performance: Angourie Rice (15 years old) in The Nice Guys. Runner-up: Julian Dennison (13 years old) in Hunt for the Wilderpeople.

Suicide Squad

Best Double Play: Chris Pine, heroic in Star Trek Beyond and tormented in Hell or High Water. Runner-up: Bill Hader, likably cynical in Maggie’s Plan and delivering the best vocal turn in The Angry Birds Movie. Most Critically Overrated: Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. This weak comedy starring Andy Samberg, a mockumentary a la This Is Spinal Tap, boasts a 77% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But why? Most Commercially Underrated: The Nice Guys. It’s hard to find anybody who’s seen this movie who didn’t like it, but it’s even harder to find many people who’ve seen it in the first place. It deserved better than a $36 million domestic take; perhaps like writer-director Shane Black’s previous picture, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, it will garner more fans via DVD. Best Legs: Bad Moms. This big-screen sitcom opened decently ($23.8 million) but probably should have tapped out around $70-$75 million, based on average

week-to-week drops. But favorable wordof-mouth, particularly among older female audiences often underserved by Hollywood, has resulted in a sleeper hit that’s about to cross $100 million at the box office. Worst Legs: Warcraft. This fantasy flick opened with $24.1 million, not a shabby number except for the fact that the film cost $160 million. But with the gamers all having seen it that initial weekend, the box office plummeted a disastrous 70% in its second weekend (most acceptable drops range from 35% to 45%), and its final haul of $47 million marks it as a colossal bomb stateside. (Luckily for the studio, it crushed the international box office.) Most Forgotten Summer Movie: Money Monster. This George ClooneyJulia Roberts drama opened on May 13, but doesn’t it feel like it came out somewhere around October 2012?

Best Villain: The shark, The Shallows. Runner-up: Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), Captain America: Civil War. Worst Villain: Enchantress (Cara Delevingne), Suicide Squad. Runnerup: En Sabah Nur (Oscar Isaac), X-Men: Apocalypse. Most Insufferable On-Screen Character: Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter in Alice Through the Looking Glass. Depp was only slightly tolerable in the first

46

picture, but by now giving his character a name (Tarrant Hightopp) and a backstory, he’s become unbearable. Runner-up: Sacha Baron Cohen as Time in Alice Through the Looking Glass. Most Insufferable Off-Screen Characters: The misogynistic MRAs and insecure fanboys protesting the casting of (gasp!) women in Ghostbusters. Get a life, losers. Best Kick-Ass Heroine: Jaylah (Sofia

Boutella) in Star Trek Beyond. Runnerup: The quartet (Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones) of Ghostbusters. Worst Lame-Ass Heroine: April O’Neil (Megan Fox) in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Runner-up: Alice (Mia Wasikowska) in Alice Through the Looking Glass. Biggest Surprise: The Shallows. Runner-up: Pete’s Dragon.

Biggest Disappointment: X-Men: Apocalypse. Runner-up: The BFG. Best Tag Line: “Saving the world takes a little Hart and a big Johnson” — Central Intelligence. Most Unforgettable Line of Dialogue (for better or worse): “I wouldn’t recommend getting in the Jacuzzi. It’s a smoothie of old-man semen.” — Charlie (Barry Humphries) in Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie. Best Scene-Stealer: Kate McKinnon in Ghostbusters. Runners-up: Chris Hemsworth in Ghostbusters; Simon Helberg in Florence Foster Jenkins. Most Dynamic Duo: Bob (Dwayne Johnson) and Calvin (Kevin Hart) in Central Intelligence. Least Dynamic Duo: Rocksteady (Sheamus) and Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Movie I’m Most Sorry to Have Missed In Theaters: Kubo and the Two Strings. This critically acclaimed picture hails from LAIKA, the studio responsible for past animated gems like Coraline and ParaNorman. At least I now have something to anticipate on Blu-ray. Runners-up: Don’t Think Twice; Southside with You. Movie I’m Least Sorry to Have Missed In Theaters: Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party. Convicted felon, accused adulterer and all-around tool Dinesh D’Souza is hoping his hit piece will sway the election. Yes, because that worked sooo well with his previous picture, 2016: Obama’s America. Runners-up: Ice Age: Collision Course; War Dogs. Best Performances (Alphabetically): Ralph Fiennes, A Bigger Splash; Hugh Grant, Florence Foster Jenkins; Blake Lively, The Shallows; Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins. Worst Performances (Alphabetically): Jai Courtney, Suicide Squad; Ben Foster, Warcraft; Liam Hemsworth, Independence Day: Resurgence; Joel Kinnaman, Suicide Squad. (It should be noted that Foster partially redeemed himself later with a solid turn in Hell or High Water.) Worst Film (Wide): Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. Who’s down for some turtle soup? Runner-up: Alice Through the Looking Glass. Worst Film (Limited): Swiss Army Man. At last, an art-house flick for fratboys! Runner-up: None. Best Film (Wide): Captain America: Civil War. The summer kicked off with this marvel at the multiplexes, and then it was mostly downhill after that. Runner-up: Star Trek Beyond. Best Film (Limited): Hell or High Water. A compelling narrative, complex characters, morally ambiguous situations — are we sure this was a summer movie?

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY

ARIES (March 21-April 19):

Two seven-year-old girls showed me three tricks I could use to avoid taking myself too seriously and getting too attached to my dignity. I’m offering these tricks to you just in time for the letting-go phase of your astrological cycle. Trick #1: Speak in a made-up language for at least ten minutes. Example: “Groftyp hulbnu wivgeeri proot xud amasterulius. Quoshibojor frovid zemplissit.” Trick #2: Put a different kind of shoe and sock on each foot and pretend you’re two people stuck in a single body. Give each side of you a unique nickname. Trick #3: Place an unopened bag of barbecue-flavored potato chips on a table, then bash your fist down on it, detonating a loud popping sound and unleashing a spray of crumbs out the ends of the bag. Don’t clean up the mess for at least an hour.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20):

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):

You know you have a second brain in your gut, right? (If not, read this: http://bit.ly/secondbrain.) During the past three weeks, I have been beaming telepathic instructions toward this smart part of you. Here’s an edited version of the message I’ve been sending: “Cultivate your tenacity, darling. Build up your stamina, sweetheart. Feed your ability to follow through on what you’ve started, beautiful. Be persistent and spunky and gritty, my dear.” Alas, I’m not sure my psychic broadcasts have been as effective as I’d hoped. I think you need further encouragement. So please summon more fortitude and staying power, you gutsy stalwart. Be staunch and dogged and resolute, you stouthearted powerhouse.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

In accordance with the astrological omens, I suggest you spend less energy dwelling in profane time so you expand your relationship with sacred time. If that’s of interest to you, consider the following definitions. PROFANE TIME happens when you’re engulfed in the daily grind. Swarmed by a relentless flurry of immediate concerns, you are held hostage by the chatter of your monkey mind. Being in SACRED TIME attunes you to the relaxing hum of eternity. It enables you to be in intimate contact with your soul’s deeper agenda, and affords you extra power to transform yourself in harmony with your noble desires and beautiful intentions.

BY ROB BREZSNY

Is “Big Bang” the best term we can come up with to reference the beginning of the universe? It sounds violent and messy -- like a random, accidental splatter. I would much prefer a term that suggests sublime elegance and playful power -- language that would capture the awe and reverence I feel as I contemplate the sacred mystery we are privileged to inhabit. What if we used a different name for the birth of creation, like the “Primal Billow” or the “Blooming Ha Ha” or the “Majestic Bouquet”? By the way, I recommend that you consider those last three terms as being suitable titles for your own personal life story in the coming weeks. A great awakening and activation are imminent.

About 1.7 million years ago, our human ancestors began using primitive hand axes made from rocks. This technology remained in use for over 60,000 generations before anyone invented more sophisticated tools and implements. Science writer Marcus Chown refers to this period as “the million years of boredom.” Its slow pace contrasts sharply with technology’s brisk evolution in the last 140 years. In 1880, there were no cars, planes, electric lights, telephones, TVs, or Internet. I surmise that you’re leaving your own phase of relatively slow progress, Gemini. In the coming months, I expect your transformations will progress with increasing speed -- starting soon. Prediction #1: You will attract truckloads of good luck by working to upgrade and refine the way you communicate. Prediction #2: You will tickle the attention of interesting people who could ultimately provide you with clues you will need to thrive in 2017. #3: You will discover secrets of how to articulate complicated feelings and subtle ideas that have been locked inside you. Prediction #4: You’ll begin a vibrant conversation that will continue to evolve for a long time.

The last few weeks have been fraught with rich plot twists, naked dates with destiny, and fertile turning points. I expect there will be further intrigue in the near future. A fierce and tender decision at a crossroads? The unexpected arrival of a hot link to the future? A karmic debt that’s canceled or forgiven? In light of the likelihood that the sweet-and-sour, confusing-and-revelatory drama will continue, I encourage you to keep your levels of relaxed intensity turned up high. More than I’ve seen in a long time, you have the magic and the opportunity to transform what needs to be transformed.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

in Savannah to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11. Filmed over the course of five years, The Trees documents the journey of over 400 Swamp White Oaks from their temporary home in New Jersey to the World Trade Center Memorial Plaza. This 65-minute film shows public reaction to this lasting, yet ever-changing memorial to the victims of the September 11th attacks. A visual meditation on seasonal changes and the possibility of rebirth, The Trees asks how we memorialize and remember. http://www.thetreesfilm.com/ $10-$30 Sat., Sep. 10, 4-6:30 p.m. 912-233-8733. info@ savannahtree.com. savannahtree.com/ event/the-trees-film-growing-a-forest-forground-zero/?instance_id=469. telfair.org/

In the coming days, you will have more than your usual access to help and guidance. Divine interventions are possible. Special dispensations and charmed coincidences, too. If you don’t believe in fairy dust, magic beans, and lucky potions, maybe you should set that prejudice aside for a while. Subtle miracles are more likely to bestow their gifts if your reasonable theories don’t get in the way. Here’s an additional tip: Don’t get greedy. Use the openings you’re offered with humility and gratitude.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

When my daughter Zoe was growing up, I wanted her to be familiar with the origins of ordinary stuff that she benefited from. That’s why I took her to small farms where she could observe the growth and harvest of organic food crops. We visited manufacturing facilities where cars, furniture, toys, and kitchen sinks were built. She saw bootmakers creating boots and professional musicians producing songs in recording studios. And much more. I would love it if you would give yourself comparable experiences in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. It’s an excellent time to commune with the sources of things that nurture you and make your life better.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

Unless you were brought up by a herd of feral donkeys, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to embark on your second childhood. Unless you’re allergic to new ideas, the foreseeable future will bring you strokes of curious luck that inspire you to change and change and change your mind. And unless you are addicted to your same old stale comforts, life will offer you chances to explore frontiers that could expose you to thrilling new comforts.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

These days, my dear, your eccentric beauty is even more unkempt than usual. I like it. It entertains and charms me. And as for your idiosyncratic intelligence: That, too, is messier and cuter and even more interesting than ever before. I’m inclined to encourage you to milk this unruly streak for all its potential. Maybe it will provoke you to experiment in situations where you’ve been too accepting of the stagnant status quo. And perhaps it will embolden you to look for love and money in more of the right places.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):

I’m giving you an ultimatum, Pisces: Within the next 144 hours, I demand that you become at least 33 percent happier. Fifty percent would be even better. Somehow you’ve got to figure out what you can do to enhance your sense of well-being and increase your enjoyment of life. I’m sort of joking, but on the other hand I’m completely serious. From my perspective, it’s essential that you feel really good in the coming days. Abundant pleasure is not merely a luxury, but rather a necessity. Do you have any ideas about how to make this happen? Start here: 1. Identify your four most delightful memories, and re-enact them in your imagination. 2. Go see the people whose influences most thoroughly animate your self-love.
