NEWS & OPINION EDITOR’S NOTE

Forget Facebook! Focus locally. A COUPLE of weeks ago I was invited to give a short talk to an auditorium of local high school students. We were discussing how and where people get their news. At one point I was talking to them about the growing influence of the Facebook News Feed algorithm in determing what news you see — or more accurately, the news you do not see. I explained how the news media have had to cope with A) the societal move towards people passively getting their news mostly from isolated articles on their News Feed, as opposed to more proactively surfing news sites; and B) how recent changes in the Facebook algorithm have effectively pulled the rug out from under the news organizations that had been rendered largely dependent on it in order to

from those other places. The Associated Press, for example, is rarely going to pick up a story from a member organization that is without controversy or without a hard news peg that will get a national audience’s attention. If you want to learn more about other places, go directly to their local media’s webpages and spend some time there to get a more full picture. Conversely, if you want to have more of a personal impact on the world around you, start with the world that is literally around you, here in Savannah where you live. Consume local news. Get involved in local events and issues. Go to meetings. Join boards. Get the hell off Facebook – or if you stay on, focus more on local pages, groups, and issues. This is a great time of year to make this move: Post-election, but before the full swing of the holidays. Think of it as earlyadopting a New Years Resolution.

of the worst behavior I see on Facebook is by middle-aged or elderly folks who really should know better. Nonetheless, until more people than just high school students ditch Facebook, we in the news business are still stuck with making lemonade out of the lemons there. A particularly insidious effect has been on finding an audience truly interested in consuming local news. If people would take ten percent of the energy they spend on posting and commenting about the latest tweet from Donald Trump, and spend it on trying to influence local issues and politics instead, they might not be so miserable all the time. There is a feeling of empowerment that comes from being more engaged in your local community, as opposed to the general sense of hopelessness and powerlessness that comes from obsessively focusing on the goings-on in Washingon and various far-flung places. By focusing so much beyond your local borders, you are basically guaranteeing that you will only see the negative news

I asked them to raise their hands if they got any of their news from the Facebook News Feed. Not a single student raised their hand. Not one. I regarded this as a happy discovery. Now, I’m not completely naïve. I realize that other forms of social media have simply replaced Facebook for those under age 25-30 or so. Snapchat is the go-to platform for post-Millennials. The revelation that these students were almost completely oblivious to anything happening on Facebook was still a welcome one, especially given the timing of the talk – the morning after the most contentious election since – well, since the last one. It’s become an old adage that no one’s mind is ever changed from an argument on Facebook, and this election season was yet more proof of that. What strikes me most about the nature of Facebook discourse these days is not just its overriding meanness and the

This Thanksgiving, the truly smart folks among us will give that day over to fellowship rather than political arguments around the dinner table. Even pundit Bill Maher – who like myself is known as a bit of a cynic when it comes to political observations – gets it. In a recent “New Rule” segment, he broke his own stereotype by urging people “Let’s stop talking politics to each other… we never used to fight about politics 24/7… we used to have no idea how much we hated each other – and it worked!” On the topic of the social media platform that apparently not one high school student uses, Maher says, “Facebook used to be a place to humblebrag and show cat videos. Now it’s a cauldron of political hatred. It was a platform to gain friends. Now it’s more about rooting them out.” Though Maher has been a million times more successful than I have, when two crusty guys like us who have made careers with cynical political observations are urging folks to take a break, it might be worth a listen.

quickly escalating nature of any disagreement there – the platform being expressly designed to get people addicted to emotional reactions and to suppress critical thinking. The thing that gets me these days, and which as prompted me to spend more and more time off of it, isn’t so much the constant discord – which is an old story – but rather the constant sameness. Every day it’s the same people posting the same outrage about the same topics. Every day it’s the same circular arguments that begin with minutiae and end with over-the-top personal insults. Every day it’s the same misinformation that, like bad money, drives out the solid information. Every day the uniformity of opinion seems a little more uniform. It’s hardly a coincidence, then, that Facebook’s stock price is cratering. The product now seems barely worth the price you pay for it, which is precisely nothing.

THERE’S AN old adage that goes: If you like food, thank a farmer. “I had a preschool group out here the other day,” shares farmer Merrin Slocombe. “I was like, ‘Who likes food? Raise your hand!’” Predictably, every hand shot up. “You go back to this,” Slocombe says. “Food is ubiquitous, it’s relevant, it’s permanent.” Slocombe is the director of Bethesda Academy Farm and Gardens. The farm program is a crucial component of the

centuries-old boys school over on Ferguson Avenue. “Being out in it, every day is different,” says Slocombe. “Yesterday, we saw black birds attacking a vulture and a bald eagle flying overhead. When the guys get outside, they see something different—butterfly eggs or birds in battle. Learning about compost, all your senses get stimulated. We learn about decomposition, the carbon cycle. We learn every single day.” Since 1740, the farm has taught its boys the importance of growing food. “That’s what’s neat about Bethesda— there’s always been a farm here,” Slocombe says. “Back in 1740 when we were founded, CONTINUES ON P. 10

everybody back then just had a garden and grew vegetables. That’s what you did. You weren’t going to Kroger.” The farm has changed in those nearly three hundred years, at one point including a dairy component. “We’re a little bit of a living legacy, but we’re also evolving with future trends and using farming as an example for boys to study entrepreneurial skills,” Slocombe says. “Also for them to learn some functional stuff—we teach them how to use a pressure washer, how to change a belt on a lawn mower, how to drive a tractor, winding up a hose, how to use a wrench.” At Bethesda, the intersection of practical and entrepreneurial skills is composting. Bethesda just began a compost program with Green Truck Pub and the Sentient Bean. “We’re hoping to open especially in coffee shops because coffee grounds are the perfect fertilizer,” Slocombe explains. “It’s just one of those examples of how great it is to have a collaboration—it’s very 21st century but so traditional. We have the space and they have the need.” The composting collaboration is beneficial for everyone involved. “It’s a win-win-win,” she says. “We get the fertilizer from it, and we also have a 10 teaching experience as well as it not going

into the landfill. We really try to work on that here, thinking about the triple bottom line. This is fun for us because it creates a relationship with another restaurant, another business, saves something out of the waste stream, and it gives us a product where, if we can build this project, we could end up with what’s an equitable business for somebody.” Currently, Bethesda’s field assistant Michael Wedum is handling waste pickup as part of his new endeavor, Code of Return Compost. “There used to be a company here called Grow, Eat, Repeat, and when they lost their compost collector, they reached out to me,” Slocombe shares. “They were so excited to keep the composting going, which is great.” As Slocombe admits, composting can be hard work, but it’s worth it for everyone in the end. “Composting is sorting and taking the effort to go through trash and stuff like that,” she explains, “but it’s a huge value. It is literally garbage to gold.” Bethesda relies heavily on community partnerships like their composting program and their custom growing for local restaurants. “We’re doing some custom growing where we explore different plants and see what works,” Slocombe says. “The chefs

are really the ones who, for a farm our size, pull our market. Working with the chefs is what takes us into the public eye. The consumer demand is what allows us to have what we do be possible and profitable.” Slocombe partners with restaurants like Husk and the Wyld Dock Bar to grow the crops that the executive chefs want to serve. “There’s so much creative force that comes from these really conscionable chefs like Tony [Seichrist from the Wyld],” Slocombe enthuses. “I love working with Tony because he’s really walking the walk. He’s so authentic, he’s so motivated. It’s more than just putting something on a plate. It really is artistry. Again, it’s so essential—we are what we eat.” Slocombe oversees the garden, but Bethesda also raises cows and goats. “That’s one of the interesting things about raising farm animals,” says Slocombe. “The goats are basically lawn mowers, but the cows are raised ultimately for meat. We give them the best of life, we give them a great experience, and they give us a great experience, which might be a burger!” Slocombe says that their cows are raised responsibly and beneficially to the environment.

“People are very oriented towards a plant-based diet, which makes sense,” Slocombe says, “but what people are discovering is it’s actually an ecological benefit. If you raise cows on pasture, there’s a carbon sequestration that happens, which is improving the soil health with the manure and the patterns of their hooves in the soil. It replicates what large-range animals like bison used to do. With their hooves in the soil, there’s actually a little micro-climate that’s created and the manure infiltrates that area.” The difference between cows raised in a pasture and in an industrial farm is very noticeable in the meat they produce, which sends home the point of being environmentally conscious. “That’s what’s so sweet about our farm,” says Slocombe. “We’re 15 minutes from downtown Savannah, and because of the structure of this land, we have 600 acres. It’s a big property. Another teacher and I run Outdoor Club—it’s about exploring the intersection of coastal resources and recreation. How it is that fishing and hunting and shrimping and farming and all these things we get off the land is part of our economy but also our ecology.” CS The Farm and Gardens Stand is open Thursdays from 3 to 5 p.m.


NEWS & OPINION CITY NOTEBOOK

Nighttime Tour regulation: Target the few bad apples instead BY ORLANDO MONTOYA

HERE’S THE most important thing that we learned from last week’s meeting of tour guides versus downtown residents complaining about the loud, obnoxious nighttime tours in the Historic District, especially pub crawls and ghost tours: The number of offending tour guides is very low, perhaps four or five (out of hundreds). This is documented by an earnest downtown resident who is having problems and started taking pictures. And the number of downtown residents filing the bulk of complaints is similarly low, although I’m less certain of this number.

So here’s the second most important thing that we learned from that meeting: This isn’t tour guides versus downtown residents at all. The night’s biggest applause came when a pissed off Greg Proffit, a veteran Savannah tour guide, said “Let’s get the bastards who are doing it!” Unsurprisingly, the loud, obnoxious bad apples didn’t attend the meeting. Why is this important? The City of Savannah is considering new rules that would further restrict where and when tour guides can operate. And this is where I tell you that I’m a tour guide myself, although I don’t operate at night, when it really riles people. Based on what residents said at the meeting, I’d be riled, too: Tourists peering into your window at 12:30 a.m., boozed up and laughing. Tour guides talking so loudly you’ve memorized their lines.

Pinson has lived at the corner of State and Lincoln Streets for four decades. “It’s like an invasion,” she says. “We have the right to peace, quiet and quality of life.” No one deserves to have that outside. Tour guides applauded her, as well. But here’s where I think things start going wrong: battle lines get drawn, people get defensive and talk gets hot. And there’s a lot of hot talk with this issue. Patrick McDonald, another veteran tour guide, threatened a lawsuit if the city goes forward with its plan to restrict, even more than already is restricted, what he calls his First Amendment rights.

“I’ve watched as our operational area has gotten smaller and smaller,” he says. He’s right that Savannah already has nightly restricted tour times and areas. The new proposal increases those areas to include desirable locations on President Street and Calhoun and Monterrey Squares and desirable times starting at 10 p.m. But he’s wrong that commercial activities are like religion and press. In fact, the City could limit tours even more severely than they’re proposing. That’s the nightmare scenario for tour

guides, as expressed in a hot WTOC story that rattled many, when David McDonald of the Downtown Neighborhood Association was quoted as saying that the new proposal is a pilot and that “We would like to see it throughout the entire downtown residential area.” That means shutting down the nighttime tour business, since visitors don’t want commercial area tours. That’s people’s jobs. That’s the cleanest, easiest damn cha-ching we got. I mean, you talk and walk for 90 minutes and people give you money. And it enhances our destination experience for visitors.

Does anyone else find this frustrating? Again, we’re talking about less than five offending tour guides. Why not just find a way to shut them down? Tonya Harding, a good lawyer, old fashioned shame. Perhaps from the desk of a jaded City Hall bureaucrat the situation looks like “There’ll always be bad apples and complainers. My job is to have a rule for them.” And so here’s the last important thing about the meeting: It looks like City officials are slowing their rule-making to get the two sides together. Hopefully, cool heads will prevail in this. CS


NEWS & OPINION THE NEWS CYCLE

Greenways & Greenbacks: Economy, health are both beneficiaries BY JOHN BENNETT

“IT’S THE kind of place you’d drive right by in a car and not see unless you were really low on gas.” That’s the way Lisa Watts described the tiny convenience store at a crossroads north of Woodbine in Camden County. The good news for the proprietor is that she did stop. And so did dozens of folks from around the country travelling with her. Watts, communications manager for the East Coast Greenway Alliance, was one of 45 people who rode their bicycles from Savannah to Titusville, Fla. last week on the alliances’ “Week a Year Tour,” an annual fundraising ride. “At least 30 of us stopped to buy cold drinks and snacks,” she said. That particular convenience store was not the only beneficiary of spending power on two wheels. Creative Catering café in Woodbine also received a visit. “It was the only place open in the downtown area and we loved the air conditioning as much as anything. While it seemed we were overwhelming the small restaurant, the staff handled it well and the locals were very friendly,” she said. “In general, we have found Georgians to be kind and receptive and curious.” On the way down the coast, members of the group dined at Love’s Seafood in southern Chatham County and Skipper’s Fish Camp near Darien. The East Coast Greenway Alliance website describes the Maine to Key West route as “the nation’s longest connected biking and walking route,” but also emphasizes the “3,000-mile protected walking and biking route” remains a “dream.” Of the 165-mile route that runs through six coastal counties in Georgia, ten miles of greenway have been completed. (The East Coast Greenway and the Coastal Georgia Greenway share much of the same route). By contrast, 50 miles of the 271-mile route have been constructed in South Carolina and in Florida just over 207 miles of the 579-mile route are complete. Maryland’s segment is comparable to Georgia’s at 164 miles, but is way out ahead with

more than 57 miles of greenway for tourists and locals to use. Brent Buice, the Greenway’s Savannahbased South Carolina and Georgia coordinator, is working to make the dream a reality. Elected officials, business owners, and residents on the coast have good reason to hope he succeeds. “What we hear over and over is a community will have its naysayers, sure that the Greenway will bring trouble or isn’t worth the cost,” Watts said. “Then, once it is built, everyone loves it and businesses will note if they are close to it. The community’s investment pays off for decades forward, as the towns and cities along the more established Greenway sections have seen.” The Highway 17 corridor, which the current greenway route follows for much of the way through coastal Georgia, runs parallel to I-95. The two thoroughfares are within sight of each other in some places, yet they are worlds apart. There are prosperous places south of Savannah, but many communities feel left behind. This weekend the line at Southern Soul Barbecue on St. Simons was perhaps a little longer than usual, thanks to the RSM Classic golf tournament on nearby Sea Island. Private jets waited on the tarmac at McKinnon Airport across the street. But just 14 miles away (or about an hour by bike) the Needwood Baptist Church and School looked forlorn. Earlier this month

the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation named the church to its “10 Places in Peril” due to “the current state of disrepair, including failing roofs and increased water damage after recent storms.” According to the Trust, “Despite many families, descendants and former church members working to save them, the structures, as well as original furnishings in both buildings, will deteriorate further without intervention.” When you’re blasting down the highway at 65 mph, it’s easy to miss Needwood — founded in 1866, it’s one of the oldest African-American churches in the state — much less stop to check out the buildings. But on a bike, it’s no trouble to pull over. As a rule, people on bikes stop more frequently to examine points of interest and to reprovision than do people in cars. “On a typical day of the bike tour, we are stopping mid-morning at convenience stores for drinks and snacks, a restaurant lunch stop, afternoon snack stop, and dinner,” Watts said. That lunch in Woodbine alone put about $300 in the cash register at Creative Catering. “Dinners have been more, of course, more like $1,000 spent each evening.” In all, Watts estimates the Week a Year tour pumped between $50-75,000 into local economies along the route. A completed East Coast Greenway would repeat similar scenarios every day in Coastal Georgia. CS

From Nov. 14 to 16, Savannah Police’s Northwest Precinct officers conducted morning sweeps in Yamacraw Village resulting in 10 arrests, multiple field interviews and the recovery of stolen property, a police spokesperson report. Each morning during the sweeps Northwest Precinct officers, to include Northwest Precinct Public Housing officers, went through the Yamacraw Village area on foot checking individuals loitering in and around vacant units. Police say that many of the arrests were the result of citizen tips and information provided by the Housing Authority of Savannah. “We could not have had this level of success without the assistance of the public and the Housing Authority of Savannah,” said Capt.

NEWS & OPINION NEWS OF THE WEIRD Bright Idea

Another birthday staring you down? Perhaps you can follow the lead of a man in the Netherlands who has launched a legal battle in the town of Arnhem to change his age from 69 to 49. “(Y)ou can change your name and change your gender,” Emile Ratelband noted. “Why can’t I decide my own age?” The Dutch positivity trainer told BBC News that he feels discriminated against both in the career realm and on Tinder. “When I am on Tinder and it says I’m 69, I don’t get an answer,” Ratelband said. “When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position.” He also describes himself as a “young god.” The arbiters of his case aren’t so sure, though: One judge wanted to know what would become of the 20 years that would be erased by such a change. “Who were your parents looking after then? Who was that little boy?” he wondered.

Roxy Sykes, 33, of London, had a brainstorm that started when someone complimented her on her beautiful feet. “I was convinced to set up a social media account to show them off,” she told Metro News on Nov. 1. But that was just the ground floor for the pedo-preneur. “It wasn’t until I started getting thousands of followers and messages about selling used items that I realized I could profit from it,” she said. In her busiest month, she grossed more than 8,000 pounds peddling socks, shoes and videos to foot fetishists. “Pairs of shoes that I would wear for two months would sell for 200 pounds, and a pair of socks that I wore for a day would sell for 20 pounds. Then a single video of me just wiggling my toes would make 100 pounds, so I was really raking in a lot of money,” she continued. Overall, she says she’s pulling down about 100,000 pounds a year. Sykes has also mentored fellow fetish models: “It’s great to be able to help others and teach people my apparent ‘talent,’” she said.

Weird Science

Scientists at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey have created a mushroom that can produce electricity using light, Discover reports. Using common button mushrooms, cyanobacteria (adept at photosynthesis) and graphene nanoribbons (to make electrodes to transport electricity), researchers produced harvestable electricity by shining light on their “bionic mushroom.” While the amount of electricity created was small, the team said they demonstrated an “environment-friendly and green source of photosynthetic bioelectricity.”

Wait, What?

On Nov. 12, a group of cyclists in Moravia, Czech Republic, enjoyed a sunny afternoon of riding to a landmark known as Lookout Tower. Taking in the view from the tower, they saw a drone flying around and took video, capturing the moment when the drone picked up one of their bicycles and flew away with it. One of the cyclists threw his helmet at the drone, and the others ran to chase the drone on foot. Happily, the drone dropped the bike a few hundred feet from the tower.

Crime Report

In North College Hill, Ohio, on Nov. 6, Noel Hines’ criminal love for Thin Mints finally caught up with her when she was arrested for stealing “a large order of Girl Scout cookies” last March. North College Hill police said Hines took delivery of the cookies, valued at more than $1,600 and intended for a local Girl Scout troop, and never returned or paid for them. When Hines showed up at the town’s Mayors Court on an unrelated matter, police arrested her, then posted on Facebook, “That’s the way the cookie crumbles.” CS

MUSIC INTERVIEW

OTIS follows the musical thread

The Kentucky-based Southern rock band finds their own sound but acknowledges their diverse influences BY SEAN KELLY

sean@connectsavannah.com

KENTUCKY’S OTIS is, for all intent and purposes, carrying the Southern rock flag these days. The band’s unique brand of roots-influenced blues rock has been winning over audiences for years now, and even earned them praise from rock icons like ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons. Their most recent release, the criticallyacclaimed Eyes Of The Sun, was produced by Grammy-winning producer and Johnny Winter collaborator Paul Nelson. Comprised of singer Boone Froggett, guitarist Steve Jewell, bassist John Seeley, and drummer Andrew Gilpin, the band is currently on an extensive tour in support of their latest effort. Ahead of their show at Barrelhouse South, we spoke to Jewell about their distinct sound, the history of the band, and the importance of music history.

CONNECT SAVANNAH | NOV 21-27, 2018

How did the band start, and how did you land on what you do? SJ: All four of us lived in the same area, and grew up in south central Kentucky. The way we were raised, we were brought up playing music with our dads and family members. Country, southern rock, classic rock, blues - you name it. Especially for Kentucky, it’s a small community so if someone plays music you definitely know about it. Our singer, Boone, and our bassist, John, were playing at Boone’s father’s jamboree. Eventually our drummer Andrew started playing there with them. I’d been friends with Boone and John, so the stars just kind of lined up one day. We put the band together, probably about seven years ago now, and it’s just been going great ever since. We got together as friends and started jamming, and it just evolved to where it’s at now.

18 So what kind of stuff were you listening

“What’s always been interesting to us about roots music is that it’s the root of modern music.” PHOTO BY SCOTT WILLIS

to when you first got together? Were you bonding over certain bands, or were you bringing in your own individual influences? SJ: A little bit of both. Playing with our dads, we got turned on to a lot of things at a younger age - bands like Skynyrd and the Allmans, country music like Merle Haggard and Buck Owens. And classic rock bands as well like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Grand Funk Railroad. Through studying those bands, it led us to those band’s influences. You discover Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, John Coltrane - all that good stuff. The special thing about our band is that we all share the same common interest of what music we like. Even a lot of our guilty pleasures are the other person’s guilty pleasures. We’ve studied a great deal of roots music. Whether it’s Chicago blues, Delta blues, jazz, gospel, or bluegrass. What’s always been interesting to us about roots music is that it’s the root of modern music - it’s where everything stems from. This is what makes the most sense to us - in this day and age there’s so much music out there. Which is awesome, but at the

same time if you’re an up-and-coming artist it can be hard and intimidating to find your own sound and be your own band. So what made the most sense to us is to do what our heroes did - study these iconic roots artists and let it influence us to help us find our own identity.

Definitely. It has that sort of John Paul Jones playing style happening.

SJ: Right. A good friend of ours, Danny Williams, is a stellar musician and mandolin player here in Kentucky. We were wanting to showcase a different side of the band - more kind of a country and roots backIt’s good that you brought up the roots ground. We were thinking more of that, influence because there’s one song and that’s why we have the mandolin on it. I’m really curious about from the new It’s maybe a little bit of an homage to those record - “Relief in C” sounds like it was who’ve mixed roots, country, and rock. It a really big nod to Led Zeppelin III. That just kind of came out that way. sort of progressive, acoustic ZeppeThe idea that you were listening to lin thing. When you were writing that Middle Eastern music when you were song, were you intentionally trying to do something different from the rest of writing is similar to Zeppelin in that they were listening to similar things the record? Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Egyptian SJ: Absolutely not, man! [laughs] That’s music and stuff like that - when they an instrumental song that I wrote for the were experimenting on their later record. Basically how that came about is, records. It goes to show the power of I was listening to a lot of Middle Eastern music despite cultural barriers. music like Ali Akbar Khan and some later SJ: Music is a universal language. By going Black Crowes records like the Warpaint back and studying bands and roots music, album. I was also listening to a lot of older it kind of led me to [the international influbluegrass - I don’t know, it kind of came ences]. Studying a lot of our heroes and out. I think the thing that gives it the Zeppelin edge is the mandolin on it. what they were into, like the Beatles when

they went to India, kind of led us to check some of these people out. Then you start thinking about what it would sound like if Bill Monroe and Ali Akbar Khan had a jam session with special guest George Harrison. It kind of makes you wonder. There are bands like Greta Van Fleet who haven’t really found their thing yet, and they get a lot of criticism for not acknowledging their influences - like Zeppelin, first and foremost. Particularly because the influence is so glaring. I think there’s a fine line you have to ride between finding your own thing and acknowledging where it came from, and you guys do that really well. What’s your formula for striking that balance? SJ: Listen to everything, and study roots music because that’s where it all comes from. If you’re a band or an artist finding your voice, it’s fine when you’re starting out to channel maybe on certain band or whatever. Or you may go through a phase where you play just B.B. King licks or Jimmy Page licks. At some point, as you grow as a musician, channeling those people are great but it’s a matter of finding that fine line of how to evolve away from that.

It’s hard, with everything that’s been out over the past five or six decades, to know where to go. When Hendrix hit the scene, people went - where do we go from here? It’s tough. But in my opinion what’s worked for us well is going back, doing homework, and

studying the artists who influenced our heroes. It hits you in a totally different way. If you like Led Zeppelin, you’ll find out that they were really into Howlin’ Wolf or Elvis Presley. Or you find out they interpreted a song by Willie Dixon, then you find out who he was and get to Chess

Records in the 50s. You can keep going back from there. A lot of times, that’s as far back as some people will go. But we keep going back farther than that - discovering people like Son House. And then you get to Robert Johnson, and then to Charlie Patton. And then, if you really want to do some homework you can go back and discover a lot of obscure artists. We did a tribute record to John Brim - he wrote the song “Ice Cream Man” that Van Halen did on their first record. John Brim was from Hopkinsville, Kentucky, and recorded on Chess Records with Little Walter and Elmore James. We take a lot of pride in what we have to offer here in the state of Kentucky. We’re smack dab in the middle of Chicago and the Delta. You had those blues movements happening, and you also had more Appalachian-type roots music. And then fast forward a few decades, you go north of Kentucky to Michigan and get Motown. If you go south, you get Stax Records. Kentucky is kind of in the middle of a lot. CS

MUSIC FEATURE

For the past several years, Raby and the Motown Experience have been performing A Motown Christmas.

BY SEAN KELLY

sean@connectsavannah.com

CONNECT SAVANNAH | NOV 21-27, 2018

MOTOWN is an American musical institution, with dozens and dozens of timeless songs, some of the world’s most influential artists, and a wealth of the most accomplished musicians and songwriters in history attached to the name. Artists like The Temptations, The Jackson 5, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Supremes, and countless others made up Berry Gordy’s legendary roster, and the Motown catalog continues to impact modern music and enthrall listeners decades later. A testament to the lasting legacy of Motown is the Motown Experience, a group of former Motown stars who tour together and perform some of the most beloved songs of the era. The supergroup 20 features members of The Temptations,

Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, The Capitols, and The Dramatics, and is led by musical director and longtime Motown associate Glen Raby. For the past several years, Raby and the Motown Experience have been performing A Motown Christmas - a wide-ranging show filled with holiday music and beloved songs from the peak of the Motown era. The show has been coming to the Lucas Theatre for the Arts for several years, and this year is no exception. The show is set to swing through Savannah on November 25. Raby is an accomplished musician and bandleader, who conceived the Motown Experience after his work with The Contours ended in 2012. He’s been involved with the music and the Motown legacy since the 90s. “I liked Motown music well enough,” he tells Connect of his introduction to the catalog. “Growing up in the Detroit area, I

was exposed to it quite a bit. To be honest, I always leaned a little more towards the more raw, grittier Stax stuff growing up. Somehow or another, I ended up performing with a lot of the Motown acts.” Raby says that he feels like The Contours - the group he worked with the most - were perhaps the most closely linked to Stax stylistically of all the Motown acts. “They were a little gritter, not quite as polished as, say, The Temptations,” he says. After his work with The Contours ended, Raby says he took a show he produced for them and adapted it for what became the Motown Experience. “I’d written a show for The Contours initially it was going to be a symphony pop tour. We performed it once,” he explains. “When I left The Contours, I thought the show had a great deal of potential and I wanted to continue doing it. I put the group together in the beginning specifically to do

the holiday show.” The process of putting together the Christmas show was one that included exploring not only the Motown catalog in terms of holiday music, but also standards and Christmas songs that weren’t recorded by Motown acts. And, of course, the show includes the classics that people know and love. “I tried to, kind of, have a balance of a little something for everyone,” he says. “About a third of the show is actually just straight Motown classics, and a good third of it is traditional Christmas songs more or less performed in the traditional songs. There are certain songs that would be awfully hard to improve upon - songs like Nat King Cole’s ‘Christmas Song.’ I’m not sure what you could do to it to make it any better than it was! So we perform it fairly straight, so to speak. The rest, CONTINUES ON P. 22

I used some of the songs and arrangements that had come before us like the Motown Christmas album. And we came up with a few of our own that maybe they hadn’t thought of.” For Raby, he gets a sense of accomplishment from seeing his idea come to fruition, but it’s much more rewarding to see the audience’s reaction to the music. “Depending on the age group they’re in, it varies from it bringing back memories to it being a fresh experience,” he says. As the Motown legacy continues to grow and stand the test of time, Raby says there are a number of reasons why people still seem to connect to it after so many years. “If I could quantify it, I guess I’d bottle it and be a rich man. But I think there are a lot of factors - the heartache songs were kind of positive. It was always about love. The lyrics were intelligently written, and the band was phenomenal - the Funk Brothers were an amazing array of musicians,” he says of why he thinks Motown remains so popular. “It’s interesting to me that the technology was so limited back then - if you couldn’t do it, then you just couldn’t do it. There was no fixing it, there was no pitch correction or time correction. If anybody made a mistake, everybody had to start over from the beginning. The talent that was required to actually produce finished products with the lack of technology that they had was pretty extraordinary. As I performed with a lot of the Motown artists in later years - even though they

weren’t at the top of their game like they used to be - because of the amount of talent they had that was required to produce those records in the first place, they could still get out on stage and make it happen.” Honing the craft of musical ability, Raby says, is something that set the musicians of the 50s, 60s, and 70s apart from many people working together. Because technology makes it easier to complete a finished product that sounds professional and impeccably performed, there’s less emphasis on musicality than there was with artists like the ones during the Motown era. “You don’t have to put the time and effort into getting it right because the computer can fix it,” he says. “I guess it’s like that with everything. I recently stopped at a CVS and the guy was mystified about how to make change without being able to punch it into the cash register. Those are things that, because we didn’t have that technology, we learned to do as kids.” As for his favorite Motown song, and his favorite in the Christmas show, Raby says he can’t possibly decide on just one. “Some days it’s one thing, some days it’s another,” he says. “I really do have a special feeling about pretty much everything in the show. The Motown catalog is so big, and it’s got so many great songs - I don’t know how I’d pick one.” CS

MUSIC SPOTLIGHT

RISING STAR LOCAL musician Natalie Goodman released her debut single “Just a Friend” on Nov. 2. We wanted to know a little bit more about this upcoming local artist, so we reached out to Natalie and asked her a few questions regarding her music career. How did you get started with music? I have always been in love with music, ever since I was a little girl. Music has always been spiritual to me, a way to channel my emotions or cope with stressful situations. When I was younger, I had crippling stage fright, to the point where I wouldn’t even sing in a group. My own parents didn’t even hear me sing until I was about 12 years old when my middle school chorus teacher gave me a solo and made me do it. After that I slowly gained confidence in singing and performing. In high school, instead of singing in the chorus, I was the lead singer of our Jazz Band Ensemble and I really loved it. A few of the guys and I branched off from the band and formed our own small band and performed at private parties around town. How has music helped you with some of the challenges you’ve encountered throughout your life? I graduated from high school and went to the University of Georgia on a soccer scholarship and played D1 soccer for four years. While doing that, I obtained degrees in both Biology and Spanish with the hopes of attending medical school. I had really tough four years playing soccer at UGA. Not only was the time commitment insane, plus a super challenging course load, but I also endured 2 coaching changes, a number of serious injuries and illnesses including mono, pneumonia, a parasitic infection, a broken rib, 2 concussions, 2 knee surgeries, a torn shoulder joint, a broken foot, a broken wrist, and stress fractures in both of my legs at the same time (twice!), all in four years. All of that plus having to do well enough in school to be a candidate for medical school was incredibly stressful, and I didn’t know how to handle it, so I turned to my music. My second year of college, I picked up a

guitar and started teaching myself so that I could sing to it because I missed my music so much and it was really the only thing that I could do to cope with the stress of D1 sports and a pre-med course load (plus all of my injuries). How did your professional singing career start up? As I got better I started seeking out gig opportunities around town. I played my first gig my junior year and loved it and ended up playing a few more before I graduated. I was able to incorporate my music into athletics by singing the National Anthem before I would play my soccer games at UGA (It was so cool because we would get close to 2,000 fans at our games). Then I got to sing the National Anthem before other teams’ sporting events including Men’s and Women’s Tennis, Baseball, and Softball. The athletic department took notice of my love for music and sent a film crew out to do a special on “The Singing Soccer Player” which actually ended up airing on ESPN and the SEC Network several times. What has this past year meant for your music career?

Goodman is a University of Georgia graduate.

Last January, one of my good friends, UGA quarterback Jake Fromm, shared one of the covers that I did of Sugarland’s “Unlove You” on his social media, and it ended up getting over 200,000 views and recognition from NBC’s “The Voice.” One of the show’s producers emailed me and asked me to come out to Houston for a callback audition for the show. Unfortunately, I didn’t make it past the callback round but it was still a really cool experience to be around such talented people and to learn more about show business. I ended up gaining a small fan base from the video and some momentum in my music. I was receiving a lot of emails asking when I was going to release some of my own music -- I had never written any original music before at that point -- so I started dabbling in songwriting. Since then I have written several original songs including one “Let Go” that won the “Best Song of Camp” award at Kirsti Manna’s (writer of hit single “Austin” sung by Blake Shelton) songwriting intensive camp. Country music star Kelsea Ballerini won the same award when she attended

the camp a few years back, so it was amazing to be in that kind of company! I just received an invitation from Kirsti to come back to Nashville later in November for an invitation only writing intensive weekend with her and other hit songwriters. I was in Nashville in August meeting with Kirsti and her husband, Bill Warner, who is a producer and audio engineer about publishing and recording my song, “Let Go” and a couple others that I had written. While there, I recorded 3 of my songs, one of which I released as my debut single “Just a Friend” on Nov. 2nd. I have also had some recording experience doing vocals on a track called “Miracle” for the band AFTM, a relatively successful band based in Athens, Ga (they have played in Savannah several times as well and are now on tour). Any message you’d like to give to your fans? My own song, “Just a Friend” is available for streaming and/or purchase on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, etc.

It is so exciting! I had the pleasure of working with several well known professionals while I was up recording in Nashville, including guitarist Trevor Barber who was instrumental in bringing my single to life. He helped me lay down all the tracks on my record and kills the guitar part on the song. I am writing a few more songs that I will go back to Nashville to record in late January/early February. I plan on releasing my first EP this summer. I have experienced a tremendous outpouring of support from fans over the last year. I cannot stress enough how much the positive feedback means to me. Music is something that is so personal and to be able to share it with everyone makes it that much more special. There is no better feeling than having someone tell me that my music has touched them or that they can relate to the words I write. I hope people will keep sharing my music with their friends and family and continue supporting me and my musical process. CS

Pooler diner brings tasty take on Southern classics

business district of Pooler near the outlets, theater, and bowling alley, Metro Diner has been serving up heaping helpings of legitimately authentic comfort since last year. BY LINDY MOODY Mariah Kulkin, account executive of Metro Diner, told me that they “decided to bring Metro Diner to the Savannah DINER FOOD is no stranger to the mouths community because it was a great step of most Americans. Almost anyone that northward from our original diners in you know or run into will have, at some Jacksonville, Florida.” point, dined at a mom-and-pop diner Though the menu can be a bit overwhere they serve breakfast all day and have whelming because of the vast array of had the same menu since 1972. options—and I will tell you, it is a menu This article is not about those diners. containing a massive amount of options— Though they scatter most of America, my friends and I settled on five items to try. those diners are not Metro Diner.

a modern twist—hungrier than an army in the desert—run your hand down the menu until you find the handmade Cheesy Tots. Tiny pillows of tender potatoes are created by hand with cheddar cheese folded inside, then deep fried to crispy perfection. On the side comes a creamy tangy bowl of  ranch dressing for dipping. Crisp on the outside yet light on the inside, these little balls of succulent sin are the perfect starter for any meal. However, do not let the satisfaction following indulging in the Cheesy Tots stop you from continuing on your culinary journey towards fulfillment.  Metro Diner has their own twist on a meat and waffle dish—the Pulled Pork Mac Stack.  Although new to the menu, Metro Diner’s “Pulled Pork Mac Stack has quickly become a favorite,” Mariah said. A gigantic cheddar cornbread waffle is served next to a heap of an entire half pound of barbeque pork that has been smothered in a sweet smokey BBQ sauce.  The cherry on top of this porky sundae? A mound of gooey decadent macaroni and cheese. If there was any question about the southern legitimacy of this diner, a barbeque cornbread waffle topped with mac-and-cheese should squash that in its tracks.

The pot pie.

However, if you’re feeling more of a notso-southern kind of meal, Metro Diner has you covered. The Chicken Parmesan is one of the largest plates of food I have ever attempted to tackle. Like most items on their menu, you should expect to bring some leftovers home. The expertly breaded chicken is

seasoned with Italian herbs and topped with some of the grandma-made-this tasting red sauce that everyone knows and loves. It sits atop a nest of al dente pasta for you to twirl in your fork before spearing a cut of the juicy chicken. The overall effect is an ultra savory, slightly cheesy, home style meal that will warm your belly. If, instead, you are in the mood for a breakfast diner meal, Metro Diner has not forgotten to include options for you! In my opinion, one of the greatest toppings for a waffle is fried chicken, and Metro Diner does this dish right. Mariah told me that their Fried Chicken and Waffles is “topped with strawberry butter and is our most popular item.” The Diner uses a classic thick and airy Belgian waffle mix to create their cratered crispy breakfast bread. An entire half of a chicken, bone in, is fried to a light golden brown before being stacked on top of its waffle base.  Now, all Southerners have had fried chicken. We have had good, and we have had some not so good. This fried chicken holds up to something you would find at a local meat-and-three in the Deep South. To finish the dish, an ice cream scoop size mound of sweet strawberry butter is dolloped on top. Sweet. Strawberry. Butter. On top of fried chicken. On top of a Belgian

waffle. And, yes, it is as good as you want it to be. Another signature and extremely popular dish on the menu at Metro Diner is the Chicken Pot Pie. Just like most of their dishes, this one is true to the classic version yet elevated with a slight twist. The twist for Metro’s version of Chicken Pot Pie is a biscuit crust, like I use on any pot pie at home. So much better than the classic use of a pie crust, a biscuit crust allows you to sop up all of the gravy that is created by baking the meat and vegetables together alongside interior ingredients of mixed vegetables hidden underneath the thick layer of buttery biscuit. With the food being so decadent, I was curious why Metro Diner decided to settle on the Savannah/Pooler area as a lucky recipient of one of their many locations. Kulkin told me that “the Southern charm and the great local atmosphere here in Savannah has made it an enticing area to expand out Metro Diner’s footprint.” If you find yourself near Metro Diner, and it’s a little early for the aforementioned feasts, lunch or dinner are not the only offerings. Metro Diner also offers breakfast and a gluten free menu as well. CS Metro Diner is at 200 Tanger Outlets Blvd #200, in Pooler.

WIDOWS

/// Despite being steeped in violence, Widows opens with a steamy kiss – more than one, in fact. Veronica and Harry Rawlings (Viola Davis and Liam Neeson) appear to be the type of married couple who never exited the honeymoon phase, and their time seen together is playful and passionate. Unfortunately, Harry is a career crook, and it’s not long before he and his cohorts in crime are killed during a heist that goes terribly wrong. Widows sets up these competing scenarios – back and forth and back and forth between the romance and the robbery – right at the beginning of the film, and then proceeds not so much to build on them but to dissect them, peering deep into their bowels and consequently spinning the story off in unexpected ways. British filmmaker Steve McQueen, who won an Oscar for co-producing the Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave (he lost the actual directing statue to Gravity’s Alfonso Cuaron), has teamed with Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn to adapt a six-part 1983 miniseries that was a big hit in the UK (the American TV remake, which aired on ABC in 2002 and starred Mercedes Ruehl and Brooke Shields, didn’t fare as well). Whittling the miniseries’ 290 minutes down to the movie’s 130 minutes couldn’t have been easy, but what remains is compact enough not to wear out its welcome yet expansive enough to give all of the major characters plenty of breathing room. The title refers to the wives of the four dead men, with three of them (Davis, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki) forced by outside aggressors to pick up where their husbands left off – by successfully planning and executing their own heist. What’s remarkable about Widows, though, is that its scope isn’t just limited to this trio and their caper. Other characters are constantly being introduced, like a slick politician (Colin Farrell) who’s as corrupt as they come and yet occasionally seems to actually give a damn, or the hot-headed youngster (a chilling about-face for Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya) who just can’t stop hurting people, or the beauty salon employee (Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo, fresh off her big-screen breakout in Bad Times at the El Royale) whose babysitting gig leads to a riskier proposition. And there are other story threads at play, but unlike Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which suffers from too many plotlines being ineptly handled, this one benefits from its wealth of narrative, with nary a false move impeding its headlong plunge into a dynamic denouement.

WIDOWS

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

// The magic is woefully missing in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the first picture that in itself feels like a crime against the rock-solid Wizarding World franchise that began back in 2001. It was an impressive run, with all eight Harry Potter pictures and 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them offering hours of entertainment via a heady mix of vibrant characters, layered storylines, and razzle-dazzle effects. The Crimes of Grindelwald, on the other hand, is the first series entry to feel as if it’s doling out punishment rather than pleasure. It’s an unwieldy beast, with various characters and subplots all clawing their way to the spotlight – a spotlight, incidentally, never relinquished by the suffocating CGI that dominates the proceedings. “Abundant CGI in a fantasy flick? You don’t say!” Yeah, but the difference is that the previous pictures all offered FX in support of the story, not at the expense of it. Yet here, there are numerous scenes designed solely to show off visual wizardry rather than advance the film. The Crimes of Grindelwald often feels like a CGI demo reel for Academy consideration rather than an actual movie, but here’s the real rub: The effects aren’t that great, with many moments that look absolutely unconvincing in all their polished petrification. At any rate, the most ingratiating ingredient about Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them wasn’t its effects or its plot or even its fantastic beasts. Instead, it was the foursome that resided at the center of the tale: the gawky wizard Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), magically endowed sisters Tina and Queenie Goldstein (Katherine Waterston and Alison Sudol), and No-Maj (non-magical) baker

Jacob Kowalski (Dan Fogler). Director David Yates (who had helmed the final four Potter pictures) and creator J.K. Rowling (making her screenwriting debut) kept the focus on this quartet, providing audiences with heroes worth following. Yates and Rowling have returned, but they’ve largely left their Fantastic four behind. The characters are here in body more than spirit, as Scamander merely operates as a connective tissue between the various plots rather than as an actual individual while Tina and Jacob basically stand around gawking at the proceedings. As for Queenie, she undergoes a transformation that’s as illogical as it is ill-conceived, feinting in a direction that makes no sense given what we learned about this great character in the previous picture. Speaking of that previous film, Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) showed up in the waning moments, revealed as the true villain of the piece. Now he’s the star attraction, a dark wizard with all the megalomaniacal ambitions of a Bond villain. The only one who can stop him is the respected wizard Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law), but because he’s bound by a secret from the past, Dumbledore has to hand over corralling duties to Scamander. Depp is merely OK as Grindelwald — he lacks the towering menace that Ralph Fiennes brought to the role of Potter nemesis Voldemort — but Law is a delight as Dumbledore, making it easy to see this noble, shrewd and compassionate young man morph into the elderly statesman we all know and love. Like Mr. Creosote with his food in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, Yates and Rowling pile on subplot after subplot and character after character, eventually resulting in a vomitous rejection by viewers disgusted by the haphazardness of the entire enterprise.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19)

In his autobiography *On the Move*, neurologist Oliver Sacks praised his friend Jerry’s curiosity and knowledge. “Jerry has one of the most spacious, thoughtful minds I have ever encountered, with a vast base of knowledge of every sort,” wrote Sacks, “but it is a base under continual questioning and scrutiny.” So willing was Jerry to question and re-evaluate his own assumptions that Sacks said he had “seen his friend suddenly stop in mid-sentence and say, ‘I no longer believe what I was about to say.’” That’s the gold standard to which I hope you will aspire in the coming weeks, Aries. As bright and articulate as you’ll be, you will have an even higher calling to expand your mind through continual questioning.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

CONNECT SAVANNAH | NOV 21-27, 2018

In recent years, a few pioneers have gotten microchips implanted under their skin. These technological marvels enable them to open doors and turn on lights with merely a wave of their hands, or receive up-to-the-minute readings on what’s transpiring inside their bodies. Now an additional frontier has arisen: people using do-it-yourself kits to experiment on their own DNA. For example, some have tweaked their genes so their bodies create more muscle than is natural. I would love for you to change yourself around in the coming weeks, Taurus, but not in these particular ways. I’d rather see you do subtle psychological and spiritual work. The astrological omens suggest it’s a favorable time for focused self-transformation.

44

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Are you smart enough to take advantage of the fact that your best relationships would benefit from bursts of innovative energy in the coming weeks? Are you brave enough to banish the ghost that still haunts your romantic life? Do you have the moxie to explore frontiers with collaborators who play fair and know how to have fun? Will you summon the curiosity and initiative to learn new strategies about how to enhance your approach to intimacy? I’ll answer those questions in

your behalf: yes, yes, yes, and yes.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Would you agree with me that there are both boring, tiresome problems and fun, interesting problems? If so, read on. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you’re at a fork in your path where you could either get further involved with a boring, tiresome problem or else a fun, interesting one. (I think you’ll have to engage with one or the other.) Of course, I’m rooting for you to proactively wrangle with the fun, interesting one. Here’s timely inspiration from Cancerian author John W. Gardner: “We are continually faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as insoluble problems.”

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The Jharia Coalfield in eastern India is a 110-square-mile reserve of underground coal. In some places, it’s on fire, and has been burning for over a hundred years. This isn’t a good thing. It’s wasteful and causes pollution. But now I’ll ask you to put aside that scenario, and imagine a more benevolent kind of steadily burning fire: a splendor in your soul that never stops radiating warmth and light; that draws from an inexhaustible source of fuel; that is a constant source of strength and courage and power. I’m happy to tell you that the coming months will be a favorable time to establish and nurture this eternal flame.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Marilyn Monroe, Georgia O’Keeffe, and President Franklin Roosevelt were direct descendants of the pilgrims who sailed from England to the New World on the famous Mayflower ship in 1620. I, on the other hand, am a direct descendant of a nineteenth-century Slovakian coal miner who toiled in the underground darkness. What about you, Virgo? Now would be a rich and provocative time to reconnect with your roots; to remember where your people originated; to explore the heritage that served as the matrix from which you sprouted.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

According to researchers who study animal behavior at two Italian universities, chickens can do arithmetic. The birds don’t even need to be trained; the skill seems to be innate. (Read details here: tinyurl.com/ChickensDoMath.) I’m wondering whether chickens born under the sign of Libra might even be able to do algebra in the coming weeks. According to my assessment of the astrological omens, the mental acuity of many Libran creatures will be at a peak. How will you use your enhanced intelligence?

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In March 2005, far more people than usual won big money in a regional Powerball lottery in the U.S. The average for each draw is four winners, but on this special occasion, 110 players were awarded at least $100,000 and as much as $500,000. The reason for the anomaly seemed to have been an oracle that appeared in a number of widely distributed fortune cookies. It provided five of the six winning numbers. Inspired by this crazy stroke of good fortune, and in accordance with the favorable financial omens now coming to bear on you, I hereby offer you six numbers to use as your lucky charms. Will they help you win a game of chance? I can’t be sure. At the very least, they will titillate and massage the part of your psyche that is magnetic to wealth. Here they are: 37. 16. 58. 62. 82. 91.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

“You have two ways to live your life,” writes spiritual teacher Joseph Vitale, “from memory or inspiration.” In other words, you can take your cues about how to live your life from what happened in the past, or else you can make your decisions based on what you’re excited to do and become in the future. According to my analysis, the next ten months will be an excellent time for you to fully embrace the latter approach. And it all starts now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’ve always got more help available than you imagine, and that’s especially true these days. Both people you know

and people you don’t know may come to your assistance and offer extra support -- especially if you meet two conditions: 1. you sincerely believe you deserve their assistance and support; 2. you clearly ask for their assistance and support. Now here’s more good news about the help that’s available. Whether or not you believe in spiritual beings, they, too, are primed to offer blessings and resources. If you don’t believe in their existence, I invite you to pretend you do and see what happens. If you do believe in them, formulate clear requests for what you’d like them to offer you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

In one of his poems, Arthur Rimbaud extolled the exquisite evenings when the mist soaked his face as he strolled, and he sipped that heavenly dew till he was drunk. Was he speaking literally or metaphorically? Probably both, if I know Rimbaud. Anyway, Aquarius, I’d love for you to engage in similar exploits. What are some natural adventures that might intoxicate you? What simple pleasures may alter your consciousness, nudging you free of its habits? Meditate with sweet abandon on how to free yourself through the power of play and the imagination.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s illegal to hunt animals in Kenya. But members of the Dorobo tribe circumvent the law to provide food for their families. As three or more Dorobo men wander out on the savanna, they wait for hungry lions to kill a wildebeest or other creature. Then they stride toward the feasting beasts in a calm show of force until the predators run away in confusion. The brave scavengers swoop in and swiftly remove a portion of the wildebeest, then coolly walk away, leaving plenty for the lions when they return to their meal. I bring this scene to your attention, Pisces, because I suspect that in the coming weeks you will have similar levels of courage and poise as you go after what you want.
