OUR 1542ND ISSUE 09.13.18 Memphis City Council members Bill Morrison, Edmund Ford Jr., and Janis Fullilove are having a lucrative 90 days. Since the August 2nd election, in which all three won Shelby County offices, these “public servants” have been taking home two paychecks — one from the county for their new jobs and one from the city of Memphis for their council jobs. That’s because none of the three have done the proper thing and resigned their council seats after winning new offices. But the real issue isn’t the double dipping, as galling as that is. No, the real issue is that by not resigning, these three have created a situation that enables the current city council to appoint their replacements, thereby depriving their constituents of being able to select their own council representatives in the upcoming November election. The next city election after that is October 2019, so the three appointees will have the advantage of nearly a year’s incumbency in that contest. This isn’t how democracy is supposed to work. This city council is also playing games with three referendums on the ballot for November, and you need to know what’s up. The citizens of Memphis in 2008 passed by a 71 percent margin a measure to institute Instant Runoff Voting. They also passed by a similar margin a measure to limit city council to two terms. The council is trying to overturn both of those decisions with deceptively worded referendums. For example, here’s how they’re tackling that pesky two-terms limit: “Shall the Charter of the City of Memphis, Tennessee be amended to provide no person shall be eligible to hold or to be elected to the office of Mayor or Memphis City Council if any such person has served at any time more than three (3) consecutive four-year terms, except that service by persons elected or appointed to fill an unexpired four-year term shall not be counted as full four-year term?” To an uninformed voter, it reads like the council wants to institute term limits — which is clever, because voters have already indicated they favor term limits. But in fact, it’s a blatant power grab to extend council members’ and the city mayor’s alloted time in office to 12 years from the current eight. The language on the other two referendums — which would rescind IRV and eliminate single-district runoffs — is equally deceptive. The council is attempting to rescind measures that have been passed but haven’t even come into effect yet. Vote No on all three. This is some shenanigans. Such shenanigans have also been happening on a national scale. Since the Shelby v. Holder decision in 2013, in which the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act, there have been hundreds of restrictive voting measures passed, all in the South, and all in Republican-controlled states. The Nation reports that since 2013, there are 868 fewer places to vote in the states affected by the SCOTUS ruling. Arizona, for example, has reduced the number of polling places by 70 percent — to just one polling place per 21,000 registered voters. In the most recent election in that state, voters waited in line for five hours at many polling places. See the map accompanying this column for a full accounting of this nefarious and anti-democratic practice. Why do elected officials want fewer voters and longer terms in office? Simple. Money and power. It’s a plague and it’s spreading from the presidency on down to the local level. I can’t think of any election in my lifetime where it’s been more important to vote than the one coming up in November.

DAM M IT, GAN N ETT The Commercial Appeal soldiers on. Though greatly diminished, the Gannett-owned daily newspaper has hired a clutch of new reporters to replace all the institutional memory and talent lost to digital startup, The Daily Memphian. But non-local layout and nonexistent copy editing persists. So, there’s no shortage of bizarre typos. A report on Tropical Storm Gordon shared news out of Destub, Florida, which is kinda like Destin, but shorter.

Finally, as all the local department stores break out their Halloween displays, here’s a terrifying social media share about an “active shooter” who shot multiple people “Downtown.” Careful readers will recognize The Enquirer and recognize that this drama’s unfolding in Cincinnati. But that’s a lot to ask of a headlineresponsive internet culture, and nobody wants to be the little paper that cried “active shooter!”

Report alleges lack of training, oversight at Tennessee Historical Commission.

The now-gone statue of Nathan Bedford Forest.

A new report found some big problems with the Tennessee Historical Commission (THC), the group that tried but failed to block Memphis from removing statues of slave owners. An August audit by the Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury’s office found that THC members lack the legal training to properly administer the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act (THPA), the law they tried to use to block the removal of the statues. The report said another state agency left the THC with no formal way to communicate with the media during the turbulent Memphis statue-removal process. Also, the report says THC lacks proper oversight of 14 historic sites that are in the group’s care. The THC is “administratively attached” to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). While some commissioners informally asked for the assistance of TDEC lawyers through the Memphis statue-removal process, the THC failed to formally ask for the department’s help, the report says. “Without the services provided by [TDEC’s] Office of General Counsel, the commission would not be able to fulfill its duties under the Heritage Protection Act,” according to the audit. New commissioners are given an introductory handbook, the audit says, which has a section about

the Memphis statue-removal process. “In recent months, the commission experienced increased media attention as a result of the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act,” reads the audit. “Simultaneously, [TDEC] management decided to stop providing the commission communication services, including press releases, and media handling in 2017.” The groups are working on a new, formal contract and TDEC has committed three attorneys to the THC.

the Tennessee Heritage Protection Act. But that’s about it. “However, commission staff stated that they do not have the legal expertise to give commissioners training on legal aspects of the waiver process,” reads the report. For this, the comptroller recommends formal training for all THC members. “Members should have some training on legal aspects of their actions, as well as opportunities to ask questions about processes that are unfamiliar to them,” reads the audit. Part of the problem, according to the report, is that THC and TDEC have no formal contract to bind them. The last agreement was signed in 1987. So, THC has no standing to demand help from the department, according to the audit. This became important during

H I STO R I CAL S ITES THC contracts oversight of some historical sites to various nonprofits organizations. The audit found none of the organizations have disaster plans for their sites. Only five of them could show proof of insurance. Only half of them have inventory lists of historic artifacts. Some that do have such lists are out of date. “Specifically, we found that one inventory list was dated 1986 without indication of a more current list,” reads the audit. “In another case, we could not determine whether the inventory list was current as it was missing the date altogether.” Without such lists, “the historic site operators do not know what they have and would not know if an item was lost.”

Historic Troubles


POLITICS By Jackson Baker

Seeing Double positions between Democrats and Republicans. Simultaneously, returning GOP Commissioner Mark Billingsley had dispatched a letter to his fellow commissioners making the contrary case. When it came time to vote, not only did the four new GOP members vote his way, so did most of the Democrats. Final vote: 9-3 for Billingsley. There was more to the votes for chair and vice chair than honorifics. Turner had managed to establish what had long been forecast to be his ultimate preeminence on the commission, and Billingsley had maintained at least the semblance of bipartisan sharing, as well as his own viability. There was one more decisive act on Monday, and, appropriately, it came from Turner, who announced to all and sundry that he would be appointing a task force to maintain liaison with the Van Memphis City Turner Council and would construct it around the person of newly elected Commissioner Ed Edmund Ford Ford Jr., who, after his election to the commission on August 2nd, continues to serve on the City Council, along with two other Council members — Bill Morrison and Janis Fullilove — who were also elected to county positions and remain on the council. By keeping up their council identity, which by statute they can do until 90 days after their election to new office — November 2nd, in this case — the three departing council members will negate the organized efforts of various activists to call for a special election in November to replace them, thereby allowing their successors to be chosen by the remaining council members in an appointment process for which the current council has become notorious. At least where Ford is concerned, continued on page 8

So, okay, the newly elected version of the Shelby County Commission began the process of reorganizing itself on Monday, keeping some of the body’s traditions and abandoning others — managing to be somewhat surprising, either way. The man of the day was Van Turner, who became the new commission chairman. There was no surprise there — except maybe to those who expected one erstwhile custom — that of automatic promotion to the chairmanship of the previously serving vice chair. That would be Willie Brooks, like Turner a secondtermer, who was at least expected to serve as acting chairman for the chairmanship vote. But when clerk Rosalind Nichols undertook to assist the commission, eight of whose 13 members are brand-new, by explaining the bylaws for the reorganization, she specified that two votes would be held. And when nominations were invited for the first of those, for acting chair, the new commissioner from District 1, Amber Mills, had first dibs and nominated Turner. Turner, as it happens, had written to each commissioner, expressing his wish to be chairman, and Mills, understandably, may have become confused as to the order of things. In any case, Turner was elected acting chair in a lopsided vote over Brooks and presided over the vote for permanent chair, winning that by acclamation. Another returning commissioner, Reginald Milton, a Democrat like Turner and Brooks, had aspired to be vice chair and had done some proselytizing to that effect, stressing that it was time to discard the commission’s vintage habit of alternating power

THOSE PRETTY WRONGS

• Several members of the commission, along with other local elected officials, took part on Saturday in the annual Orange Mound Parade through that centrally located African-American Memphis neighborhood. Among those taking part was Phil Bredesen, the former two-term Tennessee governor, now running for the U.S. Senate as the Democratic nominee. Bredesen’s Memphis schedule on Saturday also included a luncheon appearance in Germantown with the “Women United for Bredesen” group and a planned participation in the Southern Heritage Classic Tailgate, which ran into bad weather. All the events served as a sort of run-up to another Bredesen appearance this Thursday night. Currently billed as a “‘Memphis Matters’ Ideas Forum”

Turner’s action in effect provides cover for the process. In announcing his task-force plans, the new commission chair touted Ford’s dual service as an opportunity to “utilize the fact that he’s also a city councilman for these waning months” and “allow us to see what’s going on in the city from the county perspective.” Among the issues to be examined in this way by Ford and whoever else ends up on the task force are MATA and health care, two areas of city/county joint concern. Asked about this de facto seal of approval (which, to be fair, could also be seen as a simple acknowledgement of reality), Commissioner/Councilman Ford denied outright that there was any “controversy” involved in his continuing to serve in two different elected bodies. “The people in my district don’t care,” the commissioner from District 9 insisted, speaking of a forthcoming “meeting” that evening involving the constituents of Council District 6.

at Rhodes College, it is what remains of what was originally intended by the sponsors (including Rhodes, WMC-TV, and the USA Today newspaper chain) to be one of four statewide televised debates between Bredesen and the Republican Senate candidate, 7th District U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn. For whatever reason, Blackburn demurred at the idea of a debate at Rhodes, and the Bredesen campaign has been making the most of that decision, sending out press release after release accusing the GOP candidate of ducking a joint encounter in Memphis and playing up the newly configured Ideas Forum as a vehicle for their candidate to hold up his end on the matter. At press time, Blackburn could not be reached on the matter of the aborted Memphis debate. Although two subsequent debates have since been arranged between the Senate candidates for Nashville and Knoxville, the only exchanges between the two candidates thus far have occurred via TV ads. Blackburn currently has two attack ads running, one featuring President Trump endorsing her and bad-mouthing Bredesen and another accusing the former governor of favoring additional taxes and of gussying up the governor’s mansion at taxpayer expense. Both claims are somewhat off the mark. As Bredesen maintained in a response ad, he did not raise taxes, and, while the governor’s mansion was renovated during his tenure, he and his wife did not live there, remaining instead in their Nashville residence. While most of his TV commercials to date have featured Bredesen sounding soft-spoken and willing to work across the partisan aisle, at least one ad on his behalf has appeared of late accusing Blackburn of excessive travel and other high-living habits on the taxpayers’ dime.

Go Redbirds!

IN TUNICA

Tyler O’Neill, Oscar Mercado, and Adolis García. Mercado was traded in late July and O’Neill and García are now helping the St. Louis Cardinals fight for a big-league playoff spot. In April, Memphis had what appeared to be an electric rotation of starting pitchers: Jack Flaherty, Austin Gomber, John Gant, Daniel Poncedeleon, and Dakota Hudson. Hudson won 13 games for the Redbirds and earned PCL Pitcher of the Year honors. But all five men are now pitching for the Cardinals, leaving the likes of Jake Woodford, former Cardinal Tyler Lyons, and Kevin Herget to take turns in the PCL playoffs. And take their turns they will, now three games from back-to-back championships for a man — already a back-toback PCL Manager of the Year — who may be on to new ventures next spring. When the Toronto Blue Jays announced last week that manager John Gibbons will not return in 2019, Clapp’s name

Memphis Redbirds

instantly became an offseason talking point. (Clapp is a native of Windsor, Ontario.) Would a major-league team hire a manager with no experience in such a role at the game’s highest level? Check out the managers’ offices at Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park as the Yankees and Red Sox prepare for this year’s postseason. For at least three more games, though, Stubby Clapp will command the Memphis Redbirds. (The championship series opens Tuesday night in Fresno, with Games 3 through 5 scheduled for AutoZone Park, starting Friday night.) You can bet against the Redbirds at your wallet’s peril. Clapp has emphasized “never say die” for two seasons now as a Triple-A manager. When relief pitchers are drilling series-winning hits to the wall, perhaps it’s time we all believe in the mantra.

NEWS & OPINION

COURTESY MEMPHIS REDBIRDS

A

fter a pair of heartstopping comeback wins last weekend, the Memphis Redbirds advanced to the Pacific Coast League (PCL) championship series for a second straight season where they’ll defend their title against the TripleA affiliate of the world champion Houston Astros, the Fresno Grizzlies. Battling Mother Nature in both Oklahoma City (where they split the first two games of the best-of-five semifinal series) and Memphis, the Redbirds beat a hot Dodger team in four games, the last two in walk-off fashion. In Game 3 Friday night, Alex Mejia, Lane Thomas, and Max Schrock delivered consecutive RBI singles in the bottom of the ninth inning to erase a 4-2 Oklahoma City lead and give Memphis a 2-1 series advantage. But that comeback served merely as prelude to Sunday’s epic Game 4. The Redbirds tied Sunday’s game at a run apiece in the bottom of the seventh inning on a sacrifice fly by Tommy Edman. (The game had been scheduled for seven innings, as Game 5 would have followed had the Dodgers won.) Oklahoma City took a two-run lead in the top of the 10th inning on a home run by Henry Ramos. But the Redbirds rallied again, this time tying the score at 3 on a two-out, two-strike single by Alex Mejia. Then, things got a little weird. Edman reached second after drilling the ball off the Dodgers’ first baseman, putting Redbirds at second and third. Oklahoma City manager Bill Haselman then seemed to corner Redbirds manager Stubby Clapp by walking Schrock. Out of position players on his bench, Clapp was forced to let relief pitcher Giovanny Gallegos bat with the winning run 90 feet away. Gallegos had exactly one at-bat in his seven-year professional career. Gallegos clubbed the baseball over the leftfielder’s head for a series-clinching walkoff victory. Such is Redbirds baseball in what can now be called the Stubby Clapp era. Pieces of a good team are removed. Others arrive, suit up, and impact victories. The 2018 Redbirds, for a time, had the finest outfield in the minor leagues:

or a certain type of guy, having good style is more than wearing what’s trendy. It is a state of mind. It means being impeccably groomed,

so as to give him the confidence boost to move forward in any way. Because when you feel better, you look better. As we say cheers to

September (fashion month), here’s the perspective of some cool and creative guys in Memphis on personal style, grooming, and fashion.

Thank you to Baron’s Man Cave (www.baronsmancave.com) and barbers Rick, Tito, and Brian; Wardrobe: Lansky Bros.

Stephen - @Iam_the1ndonly

My perspective on style in general is a very simple one and one that I take from fashion designer Tom Ford: “Dressing well is a form of good manners.” I keep that approach daily while preparing for my day. Yes, I want to look professional and respectable for my clients, so when I put on one of my suits every morning, I do not take the approach as if it is a uniform, but more a symbol/statement of who I am as a person. I let it reflect my personality. Here in Memphis, we aren’t known as a trendy or fashion-forward city like L.A., New York, Atlanta, or Miami. We are such a blue collar city. I was able to grow up watching my father dress in a suit, and I realized that I, too, wanted that for myself. Fashion is constantly growing, changing, reinventing, and repeating itself — from the suspenders back in the old speakeasy days to the stockbrokers of the ’80s, and from the wide-peak-lapel blazers in the ’60s being born again in the ’90s and 2000s. But one thing will remain the same … it’s always your personality!


Grooming, in general, influences personal style by subconsciously adding a shot of confidence to the man. It’s similar to home and garden upkeep. You have more pride in something when you’ve taken the time to tend, grow, and maintain it. continued on page 12

I’ve only lived in Memphis for a year and I love it! I relish knowing that Memphians push the status quo (the herd look) and proudly express their individuality through a variety of unique styles. It’s seriously appreciated here. Drive three hours out east (Nashville, I’m talking to you), and everybody starts to look the same. If you dare to deviate from the herd, you’re shunned for standing out!

New Wing Order

Spreading Their Wings By Susan Ellis New Wing Order held a preview tasting way back in March. The wing-centric food truck debuted in Cordova and Downtown last weekend. It’s holding similar opening events in Midtown and Germantown this weekend. The reasoning for the way, way-ahead tasting was that owners Cole Forrest and Jesse McDonald didn’t want to be testing new recipes at the last minute. They wanted everything field-tested and perfected. Some suggestions they took to heart: They turned up the heat on the honey hot wings and tweaked the herbs on the Rajun Cajun. They also changed the menu to denote how truly hot the wings can be. One thing they didn’t touch was their famous Memphis Buffalo wings — their pride and joy and the wing that helped them nab the championship at the Memphis Hot Wings Festival. As they puzzled over where to launch, it occurred to them that the wheels gave them opportunity to be anywhere they chose. “It’s the whole benefit of having a food truck — it comes to you,” says Forrest. It’s no mistake that all four openings are at places with easy access to beer. “Nothing goes better than beer and hot wings,” Forrest says. In any case, they are ready to go, ready to spread their wings. “We just want to get out there,” says Forrest. New Wing Order plans on donating one percent of annual profits to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Greg Cravens

Drawing Conclusions By Susan Ellis You’ve seen Greg Cravens’ work on the cover of this paper and most weeks on the Flyer’s editorial page. But, Cravens admits, the times when Jim Davis made bank with “Garfield” in the daily newspapers are over. Now is a time to grab at whatever opportunities present themselves. Thinking about starting a web comic? Give it a shot, just have your ideas in place first. These are just some of the things Cravens will cover in his cartooning class this Sunday at Novel bookstore. He says when he first heard that Novel was opening, he called them about placing his own books in the store. This discussion led to some brainstorming of how they could work together, hence the class, which is open to all ages. According to Cravens, all kids love to draw, but it’s their parents who may be the true comics geeks. Cravens, himself, is a Mad magazine connoisseur and a “Peanuts” fan from way back. Cravens says he often has to break students of what cartooning is, that it’s more than just boxes and talk balloons. He often will start them off with a circle, two dots, and a line — in other words, a smiley face. He’ll ask them what that image is conveying. Happiness, they’ll say. This leads to a discussion of why this is and emotional content. “Cartooning is not about drawing,” he says. “It’s more about communicating.” CARTOONING CLASS WITH GREG CRAVENS AT NOVEL, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH, 2 P.M.

T

he members of Memphis folk-pop band Star & Micey radiate a solidarity that calls to mind a Southern Fab Four-era Beatles, an impression that was driven home for me when I met Josh Cosby and Nick Redmond, the main songwriting duo, for coffee. The two look like an odd couple, the scholar and the handyman, but they field interview questions like an Olympic volleyball team. Cosby sets up a joke, and Redmond spikes it, or vice versa, again and again, putting proof to the fact that the two have spent a decade leaning on and learning from each other on stages and in the studio. All that hard work pays off, as this month, Star & Micey celebrate 10 years as a band, a mile marker few groups ever reach. The festivities kicked off two weeks ago with an anniversary show at Railgarten, and continue this weekend at the Levitt Shell with a long-awaited co-headlining concert with Memphis indie-pop heavyweights Snowglobe.

“Jeff Hulett from Snowglobe is my neighbor,” Cosby says. “We’ve been throwing it around: ‘When are Snowglobe and Star & Micey going to play together?’” The 10-year mark represents an unusual time in the life of Star & Micey. Having recently amiably ended a neardecade-long contract with Ardent, the band is in uncharted territory. Cosby and Redmond seem happy, open to the possibility of a new direction and pleased with a summer bookended by a spot on the Beale Street Music Fest lineup and a hometown blowout show at the Shell. But after six-and-a-half years of near-constant touring and almost a full decade with the same label, the band is taking stock. “For the first time in 10 years,” Redmond says, “we’re 100 percent free agents — and with

a stack of material.” But let’s back up. Redmond was already working at the famed Ardent Studios when Cosby and bassist Geoff Smith welcomed him into the band, so it was natural that they wound up at the Memphis label when the time came to sign a deal. Star & Micey toured, released an EP and a full-length with Ardent, learned to play drums with their feet, toured some more, and added a drummer, Jeremy Stanfill. Their shows became more extravagant. “It was crazy. There was confetti; there were back flips,” Cosby says. They released a third record, Get ’Em Next Time, in collaboration with Ardent and Thirty Tigers (who handled distribution), made a few laps around the U.S. and Canada, and went back to stomping their feet for a while. “In the meantime, we had recorded five records that just sat on the shelf,” Redmond says. “Contractually, we had to stay,” Redmond says of the label entanglements that left them tied to the studio but unable to release their newest recordings. And after the deaths in 2014 of Ardent founder John Fry and John Hampton, one of the studio’s chief producers, there was no one to let the band go. “I don’t think there’s blame,” Redmond says. “We got lost in the cracks.” Meanwhile, over at Thirty Tigers, the death of vice president and co-founder Bob Goldstone sent the company into a period of drastic change. Star & Micey was locked into a deal with Ardent with no one to handle distribution. Eventually, after years in a sort of limbo, the contract was dissolved. Now it’s back to the band’s origins. “I jumped in the van, and we took off — for 10 years,” Redmond laughs. Those first tours built the band’s chops and taught them how to depend on each other, how to survive long days in a van, and how to roll with the punches. “If something happens, we’ll all show up,” Redmond says, demonstrating the Get ’Em Next Time ethos that so defines the band. “We’ve all decided, all four of us, this isn’t over,” Cosby says, putting words to a feeling that permeated the conversation from start to finish. Never for a moment did I doubt that, even after 10 years, Star & Micey have a lot more to give. Star & Micey and Snowglobe play the Levitt Shell, Friday, September 14th, 7 p.m. Free.

Star & Micey celebrate 10 years.


I had met Dominique in the summer of 2016 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. I was assisting director Ruben-Santiago Hudson on Dominique's new play ‘Paradise Blue’. The Festival drew lots of celebrities. I remember being stunned one morning when Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick walked into a coffeehouse and sat at the table beside mine. Another time, I bumped into the actor Glenn Thurmond, who reminds me of my deceased father. It took me two days to actually speak to Blair Underwood who was the star of 'Paradise Blue'. On the third day of rehearsal, we had dinner together, and I found myself finally coming down to the ground with the rest of the stars. Dominique attended a few rehearsals. I was excited that such a young woman had written

such a powerful play as part of her three-part Detroit Series. She was down-to-earth and an open book to all of my questions.

ing. I was Omari’s age 33-years ago, and after so much, conditions between authorities and Black men continue to worsen.

At the Lincoln Center production of ‘Pipeline’, I found myself immediately captivated by the storyline. I’m no stranger to the challenges of public schools. Like the female lead, Nya, my wife is a school teacher. My cousin is an official at the board of education; I share a neighborhood with the superintendent. I have often heard schoolstories that were similar to my own: boys fighting; stairwell love affairs; drug use. There was, to be sure, authoritative violence against Black males during my youth, but in my memory, it was nothing like today: Trayvon Martin. Michael Brown. Alton Sterling. Tamir Rice. Terence Crutcher. Philando Castile. The list goes on.

I said to myself, Hattiloo must produce this play that examines the flimsy barrier between a Black boy’s freedom and his imprisonment, against the force of the white school teacher who dismisses films like ‘Dangerous Minds’ as pure fiction, and screams, “We are at war!” The barrier that his mother, an educator herself, struggles to keep from breaking beneath her son.

The play's teenage lead, Omari, found himself on a path facing his own school-to-prison pipeline, even as he attended an elite boarding school where he was one of only two Black students in his class. After an incident triggered by Richard Wright’s novel ‘Native Son’, Omari was struck with his third disciplinary strike. I sat there outraged, hurting. Not crying, but weep-

'Pipeline' is a beautiful story and a distressing one. It is a realistic account of how a sequence of clashes with authority figures rooted in fear can swerve a young person off a road leading to success, and onto a path that herds thousands of Black boys into the criminal justice system. Hattiloo is producing this play as a call to action that starts with each audience member witnessing how a community of seemingly different people join together to save just one life - Omari’s, in hopes of strengthening our own communal bond to rescue our children from the school to prison pipeline.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Last summer, while performing case studies on arts organizations as part of my DeVos Arts Management Fellowship, I had dinner in New York City with award-winning playwright and Memphian, Katori Hall one night, when she invited me to see the play ‘Pipeline’ written by Dominque Morisseau at the Lincoln Center.

FOOD NEWS By Susan Ellis

JUSTIN FOX BURKS

ailey Biggers and David Pender of Low Fi Coffee met while working at a coffee shop in California. Both had been hired for their love of the brew and their decided lack of training. The pair eventually moved to Fort Worth, Texas. Then, Pender took a gig in North Carolina. Biggers and Pender would meet in Memphis, the half-way point, to spend time together. (Aw!) Something about Memphis felt right to them. Pender recalls asking Biggers, “You feel that?” of the city. She did. They decided to move here. “It picked us,” says Biggers. They then launched Low Fi through a series of pop-ups, first at Bozwell & Lily and then at the Brooks Museum. They’ve since set up shop at Stock & Belle, the South Main clothing/art/furniture store Downtown on South Main. They are currently transitioning from pop-up to permanent within the store.

Bailey Biggers (left) and David Pender of Low Fi Coffee

Low Fi’s approach is in their name. “It’s our philosophy,” says Pender, “simple instruments and ingredients.” What that means is that they take care to source their beans and they eschew sweeteners. They both feel that sugars and milks are used to make bad coffee taste good. A wellbrewed cup of coffee doesn’t need it. They also let the bean dictate the brew method. Sometimes that’s a machine; other times, it’s pour-over. Part of their what-you-see-is-whatyou-get approach is that they don’t add tax to their prices. So, a $5 cup of coffee is $5. (Though they do add tax to their retail items.) And, if you buy a bag of coffee, you get a complimentary cup of coffee. Low Fi offers three black coffees

(espresso, pour over, and cold brew); three coffees with milk (latte, cappuccino, gibraltar); a number of teas; and novelty drinks, including a matcha cappuccino and a cold brew iced coffee. They are currently selling Hi Fi cookies, a business out of Nashville, run by a couple just like themselves. Biggers and Pender are planning to restructure and remodel the space to make it more of an actual coffee shop. They want to expand their retail offerings — more branded stuff as well as grab-and-go items. Pender says they’ve gathered a few regulars so far. Some have kept a habit from when Stock & Belle served coffee. They say, “Dealer’s choice,” and then they try to guess what they’ve been served. “Coffee deserves respect,” says Pender. Low Fi Coffee, 387 S. Main Jamila Cooper says that she never drank tea, but one day, it occurred to her that peace and serenity would make a pretty great name for a tea house. So, she opened Cafe SereniTea in a cozy little house at 3545 South Third last November. There’s not much to it. A small counter space and some seating in a front room. This is all about the teas. She offers hot teas such as zesty lemon ginger, invigorating peppermint, relaxing chamomile, and classic green teas. Her iced teas are honey mint green, jasmine ginger, and strawberry lime black. SereniTea also offers a small selection of vegetarian sandwiches, pastries, and brunch items on the weekend. They also have coffee. Cooper cops to having a Pepsi addiction, which naturally led to harder stuff — Doritos. She kicked the habit by drinking detox teas. “It took away the cravings,” she says. The tea, with tumeric, anise, fennel, and ginger, helped her lose 27 pounds, she says. You can buy teas at the cafe to take home to brew for yourself, or you can buy them online at cafeserenitea.com. Cooper says that, while she didn’t drink much tea before, she used her background as a teacher and a mathematician to figure out the blends. She says Cafe SereniTea is a nice place to hang out, where no one is in a hurry. “Every day, someone new comes in,” Cooper says. Cafe SereniTea is open Sunday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Cafe SereniTea, 3545 South Third, 2818475, cafeserenitea.com

RESEARCH VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

September 13-19, 2018

t seems like pumpkin spice season comes earlier every year, doesn’t it? I know everyone’s eager to get to October, or just ready for the heat to end. But that doesn’t mean we have to skip straight to hanging the fake cobwebs after Labor Day. Horror movies of questionable quality are my pumpkin spice latte, but I’m not going to be in the mood for a Hammer binge until at least October 1st, and certainly not before the Cooper-Young Festival. But, keeping with the late-stage capitalist trend of constantly reinforced yet bloodless revelry, The Nun has appeared in theaters the first week of September and made $131 million dollars. On the one hand, The Nun is a charmingly old-fashioned crappy horror movie. It’s the fifth film in a series that began with The Conjuring in 2013. These movies have been loosely based on the work of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, whose accounts of hauntings have been loosely based on truth since the 1970s. Instead of going for a relatable suburban setting like The Amityville Horror (a story the Warrens have been able to sell an improbable number of times), The Nun moves the action

to 1952 Romania. It starts with a bang, as two nuns in a Transylvanian castle run frightened through a darkened hallway that ends in a door marked with the grammatically challenged threat “God ends here.” One of them uses an ornate key to open the door and retrieve a holy relic, which she says is the only thing that will save them. Predictably, her errand to the basement of godlessness proves fatal, and her partner runs up to her third floor bedroom and flings herself out the window with a noose around her neck.

Bonnie Aarons and Taissa Farmiga (above) and Demián Bichir (below) star in the by-the-numbers The Nun.

The gruesome suicide of a nun attracts the attention of the Vatican. Why would a bride of Christ commit the ultimate unpardonable sin? And what gives with this creepy abbey where they’ve been praying constantly for the last 500 years? But the red hats in Rome are apparently too busy covering up child sexual abuse to go see for themselves, so they send in Father Burke (Demián Bichir), who is apparently some kind of kick ass combat priest. For no discrenable reason, he is assigned Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) as a partner. Sister Irene is not quite yet a nun, and she’s never been to Transylvania, but she is a teacher at an orphanage in London who had some visions of Mary once, so the old priests figure, what they hell? The pair travel to Romania where they meet their guide Frenchie (Jonas Bloquet), who leads them to the abbey with his questionable accent. Everything about the setting is an old school Universal horror cliche. There are the villagers who are scared to silence about the mysterious

FILM REVIEW By Chris McCoy English is not a first language for either one of them. I will give Father Burke some credit. The first time I was buried alive by invisible demons, I’d be hopping the train back to Rome, but he keeps going like nothing ever happened. Whether that’s a sign of bravery or lack of ability on the actor’s part, I’ll leave as an exercise to the viewer. Even if you’re ready to kick off horror season a few weeks early, there are lots of opportunity to do better than this tedious nun-sense. The Nun Now playing Multiple locations

goings on in the castle, and the horses who won’t enter the perpetually fogged forest, so you have to go in on foot. Plot-wise, The Nun is a lukewarm rehashing of John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness. The nuns of the abbey, some of whom may be ghosts themselves, must keep a malevelant spirit named Valak the Defiler trapped in their basement. There’s definitely a feeling of paint by numbers from director Corin Hardy and writer Gary Dauberman. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing, as long as the execution is up to snuff. Unfortunately, that is not the case with The Nun, a picture that never met a cheap jump scare it didn’t cop. Neither Bichir nor Bloquet look like they have any idea what’s going on at any given time, and it’s obvious that

THE LAST WORD by Jen Clarke

Breakfast on Beale? Beale Street is unique. That isn’t rose-tinted boosterism or uncultured naivete, it’s true. Exempt from both city and state opencontainer laws, Beale Street is part of a special coterie of places where folks can openly booze it up in the middle of the street. If there’s anything we Memphians and the kind of tourists we attract love, it’s drinking al fresco. Such an amenity is bound to draw a crowd. And it does, so much so that a cover charge is now a perennial discussion — despite the corny name, layers of questionable optics, and uncertainty whether the program even worked last time. A fact-finding mission to the French Quarter must have come up empty, otherwise we’d have strip clubs and video poker by now. According to the Beale Street Task Force’s study, there have been eight “stampedes” since April. There’s no denying that crowd control is an issue. So the city hired a consultant to tell the mayor and merchants what they want to hear: Beale Street Bucks are a good idea. Nowhere else is such a fee necessary. But Beale Street is unique. Other more practical recommendations included setting crowd capacity at 20,000 and reconfiguring the entry points to alleviate crowding at Second Street. Assessments of the situation and their costly fixes seem to overlook the encompassing reality that Beale Street’s biggest problem is that it’s not very big. The distance from Blues City to the New Daisy is less than a quarter-mile. When something outgrows its container, you don’t discard the excess, you get a bigger container. Expanding the perimeter would make sense. This was the intent behind a resolution earlier this year that would have expanded the open-container zone to include South Main. Unwilling to yield their dominion on street-booze enjoyers, stampedes be damned, Beale Street’s merchants bristled. As long as the primary source of entertainment in the entertainment district comes from a bottle, with thousands of sweaty people up in others’ personal space well past bedtime, there will be issues — cover charge or no. Whodini was right: The freaks do, indeed, come out at night. So I’d like to propose some alternative solutions designed to lure people off the street. I’m happy to offer my consulting expertise to anyone who wishes to put these ideas into action in exchange for a commemorative plaque or unlimited mozzarella sticks. Visit a pro sports arena in any other city. On your way, you’ll pass at least one sports bar filled with eager pregamers gorging on jalapeño poppers and cheap beer before they move on to $9 drafts at the stadium. With AutoZone Park and FedExForum yards away and locals’ enthusiasm for basketball, football, and now soccer, the area is overdue for a real sports bar. The Liberty Bowl brings thousands of college football fans in December, and Memphis in May always coincides with the NBA Playoffs. So hang some old growl towels, Memphis State gear, and a couple dozen monster televisions. Whip up a few flavors of wing sauce, ice down some beer buckets and watch the cash pour in. Call it Hop City — like Hoop City, but with beer, get it? As companies consider making the move Downtown, surely their representatives have noticed a lack of options for grabbing a sausage biscuit on the way to work. This is essential to economic development. A 24-hour diner on Beale would meet this need and fulfill revelers’ need for 4 a.m. sober-up eggs. Lives will be saved. Plus, it would help bridge that weird identity gap between the historic, family-friendly Beale Street tourists enjoy during the day and the boisterous playground it becomes at sundown. It doesn’t have to be blues-themed or have a pig logo and 901 in the name. Call it whatever, as long as it serves jet-fuel coffee and thick-cut bacon on demand. One of the liveliest spots on Bourbon Street is a Krystal. Surrounded by some of the best food in the world, the restaurant with the square hamburgers and the hot dog carts stays busy. Drunk people need to eat, and “Kitchen Open Late” is bar-speak for “Kitchen Open Until We Send the Fry Cook Home.” Am I suggesting more — or at least different — businesses on Beale would disperse crowds and prevent fights from breaking out? Hardly. But open containers and walk-up drink service encourage loitering, and more reasons to get people out of the street and into the businesses couldn’t hurt. A cover charge perpetuates the perception of danger, and that iconic street deserves so much better. Jen Clarke is an unapologetic Memphian and digital marketing specialist.
