IN MEMORIAM: THE ORLANDO 49 Every week between now and the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shootings, Orlando Weekly will profile a person killed on June 12, 2016. This week: Peter O. Gonzalez Cruz Peter “Ommy” Gonzalez Cruz was known for a contagious joyful energy and an infectious smile. The 22-yearold who grew up in Orlando attending Liberty Middle School and Colonial High School had been that way since he was a child, according to his former teacher Ana Mendoza Feliciano. Among his family and friends, Gonzalez Cruz was known as a funny person and the life of any party. He worked at UPS in Orlando and his customers remembered him as always smiling. On June 12, Gonzalez Cruz went out with his best friend Gilberto Silva
Menéndez and other friends for some dancing and fun at the gay nightclub Pulse. Gonzalez Cruz, Silva Menéndez and many of their other friends died in the mass shooting that night. “In a way that night we said bye to each other with all the hugs and kisses you gave me and you told me you loved me too many times,” wrote Adrian Lopez, a survivor who escaped the club, on Facebook. “One day we will meet each other again.” On a remembrance page for his funeral, Mendoza Feliciano wrote that Gonzalez Cruz was a student who always made her laugh in class, no matter what kind of day she was having. “I have to share with you that I was honored to have a young man of the caliber that was Ommy as a student,” she said. “I touched your life as a teacher and you touched mine with your humbleness and unique personality. Rest in peace my beautiful chubby boy, little angel.” On Facebook, his mother Bernardette Cruz said that her son’s smile “reflected true love.” “A piece of my life was torn away,” she wrote in Spanish. “I want to keep sleeping to remember all the best moments we had together as a family and the best thing, your smile. But I know you are OK up there with the Lord and you will be taking care of Gaby and me. Only God knows the purpose, and someday I will understand.”

The site of the worst mass shooting in modern American history will be turned into an “iconic” national memorial and museum that will honor the 49 victims and the survivors who escaped that night from the gay nightclub Pulse. Almost 11 months after the massacre, Pulse owner Barbara Poma and community leaders with the onePULSE Foundation announced last week the start of a process to create and construct a memorial. The onePULSE Foundation will also use funds raised for community grants to care for survivors and victims’ families, endow educational scholarships in honor of the 49 victims, and build a museum showcasing historic artifacts and stories from the tragedy.

Florida lawmakers fail to pass a framework for medical marijuana:
House and Senate members walked away from a deal after the House proposed a cap of 100 retail outlets for each of the state’s seven medical marijuana growers. The Senate, which had proposed a cap of 10 per grower, did not agree. The Florida Department of Health will now be in charge of implementing Amendment 2, which was passed by 71 percent of voters last year. Orlando attorney John Morgan has threatened to sue the Legislature over the issue. Florida lawmakers agreed on little this session, but there was one thing they were able to compromise on – an expansion of the state’s controversial “Stand Your Ground” law that will shift the burden of proof from defendants to prosecutors.

The Orlando Magic and its owners, the DeVos family, are planning to purchase the Orlando Solar Bears hockey team. The Solar Bears will play in the Amway Center for the 2017-18 season. The DeVos family, which includes Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, previously owned the Orlando Solar Bears, part of the International Hockey League, from 1995 to 2001.
Florida lawmakers approved a bill to designate two Orange County roads in honor of fallen Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton and Orange County Deputy First Class Norman Lewis. Clayton was killed at the Walmart on Princeton Street. Murder suspect Markeith Loyd is accused of shooting her “execution-style” after she began pursuing him inside the store last January. Lewis was killed on the same day as Clayton in a traffic crash while he was helping search for Loyd after Clayton was shot. email@example.com orlandoweekly.com

CHARITABLE MISGIVINGS Orlando businessman John D. Smith alleges Pam Bondi directed businesses to pay millions of dollars to unregistered charities. Is his suit warranted or just a personal crusade? BY MON IVETTE COR D EI R O
efore the end of this month, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi will have to explain to a Tallahassee judge why her office allegedly directed companies that settled unfair trade actions to donate millions in restitution payments to unregistered charities. Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson gave Bondi 40 days after April 10 to respond to a petition for a “writ of quo warranto” filed against her by Orlando businessman John D. Smith. In his complaint, Smith accuses Bondi of abusing her authority when she forced 14 businesses her office was investigating to settle by donating more than $5.5 million to 35 unregistered charities from 2011 to 2016. The lawsuit alleges that in total, Bondi’s office collected $20.2 million from 55 companies in “forced contributions” to registered and unregistered charities, including money to charities connected to the attorney general’s office. Bondi has denied the allegations, calling them meritless and saying in a statement that Smith “has heaped abuse on my attorneys and continues to target my office. His attacks are completely unfounded.” Behind the lawsuit over charity donations, the saga between the two parties is an extensive, personal fight that, weirdly enough, started over hurricane protection. Smith is the owner of Storm Stoppers, a business that makes lightweight panels of corrugated plastic that fasten onto doors and windows for use during hurricanes. They’re marketed as a “plywood alternative” that can be more easily installed to protect homes from flying debris. The panels don’t have to be bolted down like hurricane shutters or plywood. Smith points to several news reports in which hurricane shutters that were left on after storms were blamed for trapping people during fires. “With Storm Stoppers, you don’t need to put bolts in your house, you don’t need to trap and kill yourself, you can do it yourself,” he says. “It’s easy, it works, and it’s tested. It’s a threat.” Smith says his product probably intimidated other manufacturers of hurricane protection products, so they complained to the attorney general’s office that Storm Stoppers were a “danger to the public,”
according to public records. An email from early 2014 shows Assistant Attorney General Rick Schiffer telling Smith’s lawyer at the time that the complaints against his product “appear to have come from the industry, and not from customers.” Bondi’s office began investigating Storm Stoppers in 2013 for deceptive and unfair trade practices because it claimed to be a “hurricane protection” product but had not been approved by the Florida Building Commission. State law says a product “may not be advertised, sold, offered, provided, distributed or marketed as hurricane windstorm, or impact protection from windborne debris from a hurricane or windstorm unless it is approved.” The attorney general’s office offered to settle the investigation with Smith if he agreed to sign an assurance of voluntary compliance agreement, which would include making a donation to a charity. Smith refused, and his lawyers argued before the commission that his product did not meet the requirements for review, as it was sold as an alternative to plywood, not as hurricane shutters. The commission seemed to agree with Smith’s premise until Schiffer began emailing the counsel for the commission to provide clarification, according to public records. Before their decision, the commission agreed to a slightly tweaked version of Smith’s argument that now required him to get local approval, not state approval, for his product. The businessman says when he emailed the Hillsborough County building department to find out how he could get Storm Stoppers locally approved, the department had no answer. In a statement, Bondi’s office says it dropped its investigation into Smith’s product “pending any determination at the local level that the product was being advertised in violation of law.” Still, Smith was upset. He filed a bar complaint against Schiffer for his correspondence with the commission, which Bondi’s office called “unwarranted.” The attorney general’s office says the Florida Bar determined no ethical violations had occurred and closed the investigation. As Smith was going over the ordeal that had cost him thousands of dollars, he was intrigued by the AVC agreements and a
benefit Florida’s citizens while conserving taxpayer resources. “When my office investigates consumer protection cases, it is often in the public interest to settle when we can protect the public without having to go to court,” she says. “In addition to obtaining promises that the targets of investigation will stop unlawful conduct, we are often able to secure promises to make contributions that promote the public good.” Bondi spokeswoman Kylie Mason spoke further about the alleged abuse Smith had directed toward the office. “Mr. Smith continued to repeatedly call the office and threaten staff with lawsuits and adverse actions long after the attorney general’s office had informed Mr. Smith and his counsel that it was closing its investigation,” Mason says in a statement. “Mr. Smith went to the Orlando Police, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and the Orlando State Attorney’s Office to make baseless complaints about our staff.” Additionally, Mason said there are “no limitations or restrictions under the law relating to the recipients of contributions.” Bondi’s office says the contribution recipient may be a private nonprofit or a governmental entity, and that AVC agreements do not explicitly require that contributions be made to charities that are registered. Some groups, like religious organizations, educational institutions, state agencies and other government entities are exempt from registration. Smith remains unconvinced. He says Bondi is already suspect after the way she solicited and received a $25,000 campaign donation from President Donald Trump in 2013 when her office was considering whether Florida should join a lawsuit regarding consumers who claimed that Trump University had defrauded them. Bondi decided not to pursue the allegations then, and ultimately, Trump agreed to a $25 million settlement with students in the New York case after he was elected. A state ethics panel recently cleared Bondi over complaints regarding Trump’s donation. Smith says he’s not doing this for retaliation or revenge – he just wants justice for other small businesses like his. “All I wanted is to be left alone,” Smith says. “They drew blood first, not me. I just want one thing from Bondi. She claims my lawsuit is without merit – prove it. I’d go away. Just prove that you didn’t donate $5.5 million to unregistered charities when all of your AVCs say you did. And if you can’t prove it, just own it. And then when she owns it, I think she should resign.”
statement by Bondi that her office had returned more than $10 billion to Florida consumers in recoveries. “I just couldn’t believe that,” he says. “I feel like if that number, $10 billion, was real, we would have heard about it on the news.” Curious, Smith began compiling data and public records about other AVC agreements that Bondi’s office had negotiated with companies like Chase Bank, Dollar Tree and the Home Shopping Network. AVC agreements that require businesses to donate money to charities can be common – in California, the attorney general’s office donates recovered funds to the charity that was harmed or to charities with the same or similar purpose as the party harmed, says Walter Garcia, spokesperson for the California office. A similar practice is followed in Florida, but the statute does not require it. The agreements are typically used when consumer reimbursement is difficult or impossible. But Smith claims some of the charities Bondi’s office was giving money to through these settlements were unregistered. Florida law says charities that intend to solicit contributions or have funds solicited on their behalf must register with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Smith alleges that out of the 35 unregistered charities who got money, Bondi’s office directed funds toward two charities run by the department, “Seniors vs. Crime” and the “Florida Law Enforcement Officer of the Year Award.” In his lawsuit, the Orlando businessman is asking the court to stop the attorney general’s office from directing contributions from businesses alleged to have violated fair trade practices to go to unregistered charities and to prevent the office from directing payments to charities with ties to her office. Smith says he used an online resource from the agriculture department to check whether charities were registered. But a review by the Orlando Weekly found some of the charities Smith claimed were unregistered were actually registered under names that were similar but not exactly as they appear in the AVC agreements. For example, if you type “Gulf Coast Legal Services” into the agriculture department’s website, it won’t show up at all, but if you remove the space and type in “Gulfcoast Legal Services,” the charity shows up as registered. Smith attributes this error to the website itself and says he was only using a resource that Bondi has promoted to other Florida residents for checking charities. In a statement, Bondi says the practice of using AVC agreements is designed to orlandoweekly.com

Greyhound advocates and racetrack owners remain at bitter odds over the safety of the industry. Meanwhile, the sport is quietly fading away as fans age out
BY L ARRY GRIFFIN
t’s a lazy Saturday afternoon at the Melbourne Greyhound Park casino on April 15, the last day of racing for the season. The stands are mostly empty, with a smattering of a few dozen people scattered around an area that could seat hundreds. General manager Jim O’Brien says it’s the biggest crowd, by far, that they’ve seen all season. That’s because greyhound racing is an industry in decline. Greyhound racing is banned in most of the United States; there are just 19 remaining active tracks in the country, and of those, 12 are located in Florida, where a pari-mutuel contract exists, linking greyhound racing to gambling. If gambling outlets don’t have a greyhound racing permit, they’re not allowed to hold
gambling activities at their facility. This won’t be changing any time soon. In Florida’s 2017 legislative session, a bill that would have decoupled racing from casino gambling failed when legislators were unable to reach a consensus. O’Brien says his casino loses about $200,000 a year keeping the dogs racing per the pari-mutuel contract with the state. That amount includes what it costs to get the tracks and kennels ready, air conditioning, and keeping the dogs in good shape, he says. “It’s a part of our business,” he says. “It loses money, but we’re big boys and if that’s what the state requirement is, that’s what the state requirement is.” The crowds watching greyhound racing
have dwindled in recent years. The greater awareness of the mistreatment of some dogs in the industry, a general increase in animal rights activism, and the changing interests of the public have shifted tastes away from the sport. That’s also due in no small part to eyeopening revelations on the injuries dogs suffer from a recent state rule that requires greyhound injuries to be made public, not to mention accusations lodged against a Florida dog trainer after five of his greyhounds tested positive for cocaine in April. O’Brien, though, thinks the difference comes down simply to age. “We do have people that are regulars, just not enough,” he says. “The millennials don’t watch live dogs, they weren’t brought up in that atmosphere. Most of the people are 60 and up.” Carey Theil, executive director of greyhound activist group Grey2K, which operates nationwide, also says he sees a generational change away from interest in greyhound racing. “Change is hard,” Theil says. “It doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a generational change, and it may take five, 10 or 15 years, but I’m confident it will eventually end entirely.” Theil posits it as the simple math of aging – the older base of greyhound racing fans is dying off and not being replaced with anyone new.

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● MAY 10-16, 2017
Jennifer O’Connor, of the PETA Foundation, sees a different reason for the “plummeting attendance.” “Greyhounds used in the racing industry live in misery and frequently die in misery,” she writes in an email to Orlando Weekly. “Kind people condemn cruelty.” But on Saturday in Melbourne, the crowd, however small, is varied in race, age and gender, and seems to be enjoying itself, content to lounge and watch each race. The races are lightning-quick – the dogs sprint the track into the face of the day’s biting winds and the races are over in split seconds. Rockledge resident Gigi Barber says she doesn’t watch racing much, but does find it relaxing when she has the time to watch it. “It’s exciting to see the dogs running,” she says. “I think that’s cute. … It’s fun to be close-up and see racing live.” Her friend Audrah George, also of Rockledge, says she learns things about dogs from watching them run. “They want to compete,” she says. “That’s the way I feel. They can hardly wait to get out of the box.” Josh Goodyear of Melbourne is outside watching the dogs up close with two of his friends. He’s been coming to the track for a long time – since he was young, he says. “I just like the whole environment,” Goodyear says. “It makes me happy.”
reyhound racing is caught in the middle of a years-long slog of legislative battles and people of differing pro- and anti-racing mindsets, all of whom claim they know what’s best for the industry – and the animals. Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, D-Orlando, new to the Florida House, tried his hand in the 2017 session at legislation to stop harmful anabolic steroids administered to the dogs. That bill didn’t make it through. Smith wasn’t under any illusion about stopping racing as a whole with his bill – he just wants the dogs to be treated as humanely as possible, he says. His bill, HB 743, made it through the finish line in the House earlier this month, but failed due to a lack of support in the Senate before the session ended. Smith says the idea for the bill came when he heard the absurdly high amount of greyhounds given steroids – 50 percent of them in the state, he says he heard a lobbyist admit at a committee hearing. “I never thought it was that much,” he says. Smith’s bill focused on banning testosterone from being used in racing dogs to help their performance. He reels off a litany of harmful side effects the drugs can cause. “It can make the dogs more aggressive,” he says. “It prevents female dogs from being in heat. There’s just all kinds of chaos.” He goes on to list sterilization, liver problems and gastrointestinal problems, as well orlandoweekly.com
as problems with the dogs’ heart functions. Those with long-term health problems often don’t end up getting adopted after they finish racing, either, Smith says. A big part of the reason for steroid use is because it’s easier to prevent female dogs from being in heat than to separate the male and female dogs. That costs more money and takes more effort, Smith says, so many trainers just don’t do it. “I keep hearing ‘why not let us give [the dogs] a little bit?’” Smith says, chuckling. “They shouldn’t be allowed to give them at all.” Lobbyist Jack Cory, who represents the greyhound industry in Florida, says Smith had the completely wrong idea about anabolic steroids. Cory defends the steroids given to female dogs as completely legal and not harmful at all. “It’s a very low dosage,” Cory says. “It’s not any different than the amount you or I would get from using a nasal spray from an over-the-counter drug. They don’t have anything to do with enhancing the dogs’ performance. Otherwise, you’d have nothing but female dogs running.” Cory says the steroids are important to use as a sort of birth control for the dogs. “Banning steroids is a bad deal,” he says. “It’s like telling women they can’t take birth control.” He characterizes Grey2K as an “out-ofstate, radical animal rights group” and says they don’t spend time actually helping any animals in Florida. He says if they really wanted to help, they’d focus on the animals who are killed in adoption shelters rather than on legal greyhound racing. He also says Rep. Smith is simply parroting wrongheaded ideas from people he spoke to about the issue. And he says the sport does good for Florida – it brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in revenue, he claims. But the sport can be deadly, and its darker side crops up frequently in the news now that greyhound deaths have to be reported under state law. A Naples Daily News study found that between 2013 and 2016, St. Petersburg’s Derby Lane track had the most deaths in Florida, with 57 dogs having died there. Derby Lane didn’t respond to multiple phone calls from the Orlando Weekly for comment. The Sanford Orlando Kennel Club reported 35 dog deaths between 2013 and 2016. A study by Grey2K goes into greater detail, listing the cause of death for many greyhounds in the year 2013 as an example of how they’re chronicled. “A greyhound was bumped into the rail during schooling and was electrocuted,” one listing for a dog named Royal Runner at the Palm Beach Kennel Club reads, dated June 21, 2013. CONTINUED ON PAGE 15
MAY 10-16, 2017

Another, for a dog named WW’s Key Stone who died on Sept. 14, 2013, reads: “At the end of the 2nd race during the evening performance on 9/14/2013, this dog collapsed at the escape and was gone. Dog came in 2nd in race.” And, in a recently publicized case, the Tampa Bay Times reported that five greyhounds at the Derby Lane track tested positive for cocaine in their systems. The dogs all came from a kennel owned by trainer Malcolm McAllister, who vehemently claims he didn’t do it and has no idea how it had happened. McAllister, as was reported, was once referred to as a “patriarch” of the industry by a Derby Lane executive. But because of this cocaine-related scandal, McAllister’s license has been permanently revoked.
t the Sanford Orlando Kennel Club in Longwood, no one is complaining about losing money from the races they put on, because they’re different from other racing outlets – they don’t just put on the greyhound races because they have to, but actively want to do so. They don’t do other gambling and they take pride in how they say they take care of their dogs. Kennel Club general manager Mitch Cohen is eager to dispel what he says are common myths about his industry. “The perception is totally wrong,” he says. “We have a no-kill policy, no putting down the dogs. We have a 100 percent adoption rate.” He says they have recently upgraded their facilities as well to make it safer for the dogs, such as adding a safety lure to make sure the dogs don’t collide. The lure is typically a stuffed animal with a mechanical arm pulling it around the track, enticing the dogs to follow it and continue around the track. Cohen repeatedly stresses that the dog racing he practices at the Kennel Club is “100 percent safe and responsible.” He says if a dog is hurt, they do their best to make sure the dog gets proper care and surgery if needed, picking up a “large portion” of the bill with the trainers. “We treat these dogs like family,” Cohen says. And after the dog is adopted, Cohen says they’re usually very happy. “They turn into big couch potatoes when they’re done,” he says. He dismisses some attacks from anti-racing organizations against his Kennel Club, saying they may not understand what goes on there in regards to ensuring the dogs are taken care of. And when it came to the dogs themselves, Cohen speaks of them with a misty-eyed reverence. “When a retired greyhound comes back
At Sanford Orlando Kennel Club, dogs stay in small kennels when not racing
after they’ve been gone, and they hear a lure, their ears perk up,” he says. “They want to be with their old friends back on the track.” Grey2K’s Theil isn’t so sure that the dogs enjoy racing so much as they enjoy not being cooped up in kennels for much of the day. “I think greyhounds love to run,” he says. “I have one and she loves to run. But I think it’s cruel to keep them confined for 22 hours a day. I’m sure some do love to run – who wouldn’t, after they were kept in a cage for 22 hours a day?” He says the belief that dogs “love” to race sounded to him more like a rationalization for the “cruelty of what [greyhound racing tracks] are doing,” and says he disputes the existence of any “good” greyhound racing tracks.
ost track managers face a predicament more akin to O’Brien’s than Cohen’s situation – they’re forced to hold the racing in order to keep their pari-mutuel contracts, and losing money from it all the time. Izzy Havernick, vice president of political affairs at the Miami track Magic City Casino, is frank in admitting that his track loses around $2 million per year putting on greyhound races. He blames the restrictive rules of the state. “The number of races we have to run is mandated by the state,” he says. “And they force us to run so many, whatever little traction we get, we do it so frequently that people start losing interest. The state mandates we run the amount of races we ran in 1996. The world is different than it was in ’96. Rather than let the market dictate how
much racing we do, they use an arbitrary number from way back when – that’s what we have to run today.” Havernick calls the rules “a huge burden” and says it would actually be in the dogs’ best interest to run fewer races as well. The number of track attendees that come in specifically for the greyhound racing is dwindling, too – he says they have maybe 15 or 20 regulars who come in and watch the races often. The state bill that could have decoupled greyhound racing would have ended the mandate that horse and dog tracks conduct live racing. However, it was not to be. By May 2, the deal had officially fallen apart. The main point of contention was slot machines – eight counties in Florida voted to approve them as alternatives to poker gambling, but the House thought it wouldn’t work because only those counties had voted for it, not the entire state. And so the bill fell apart, and with it, the decoupling of greyhound racing. Havernick says it was a shame, but they’ll just keep soldiering on. “They killed the bill,” he tells Orlando Weekly. “We’ll just keep trying. Hopefully something will eventually do something that’s best for the tracks. Hopefully it will be good for everyone one day.” Smith, speaking about his own failed bill, says he was disappointed but determined to press on with future bills in the same arena. “Passing a new greyhound protection bill in the House during my first session was a heavy lift, but we got it done,” he wrote in a Facebook message to Orlando Weekly. “Unfortunately, the dog racing industry is a powerful special interest with friends in both parties. That’s why the bill failed orlandoweekly.com
to pass the Senate. It’s why Florida is one of the only states left where cruel and inhumane dog racing continues. Make no mistake – I’m not going anywhere, and I won’t stop fighting to protect these greyhounds as long as I’m in the Legislature.” In his office at the Melbourne Greyhound Park casino, O’Brien bemoans the state of the greyhound racing industry. “It’s a sad thing,” he says. “The industry is spiraling downward.” He maintains, as some other greyhound racing owners do, that the dogs are all kept safe and no harm comes to them. But PETA claims that “countless” greyhounds are killed each year if their owners decide that they aren’t fast enough to win races. “Dogs have been shot, bludgeoned or simply dumped to fend for themselves. Those who make the first cut live on borrowed time: Their lives are secure only as long as they make money for their owners. Illness and injuries – including broken legs, heatstroke and heart attacks – claim the lives of many dogs,” O’Connor writes. Unable to hide his irritation toward some of the animal activists who have demonized his industry, O’Brien says they should educate themselves further and visit places like Melbourne Greyhound Park to see that not all of it is so dire. “We’re doing it right,” he says. “We care.” He gestures to the pictures on the wall of his office, several of which depict dogs sitting in various peaceful settings, and says they’re “dog people” there. As for the industry itself, O’Brien has no illusions – it isn’t the same as it once was. “It’s an industry that has seen its time,” he says. “I wish it was better, but it’s not. It’s nobody’s fault. The world changes.” firstname.lastname@example.org

THE MEN WHO SOLD THE WORLD
Three new books on very different musicians all stretch the limits of memoir and memory BY MATTHEW MOY ER
n this post-reality era of fake news, alternative facts, and social media influencers, it can be healthy to take a break from the white-knuckle anxiety of your newsfeed and pick up a good biography/memoir … and immediately face down the same cutting-up of time and place and linear narrative? Under consideration are three books centering on chameleonic personalities who reshaped popular music drastically while continually reshaping themselves – all while being reshaped by the sonic and subcultural changes they set in motion. First up is Finding Joseph I, by Howie Abrams and James Lathos (Lesser Gods, 272 pages). It’s a look at the life of H.R., aka Joseph I, aka Paul Hudson, the vocalist and frontman for volcanic Washington, D.C., hardcore innovators the Bad Brains. Intended as a companion book to the documentary of the same name, it works well as a standalone biography, and it intrigues on several fronts – not least among them that it’s an oral history drawing on scores of collaborators, business associates, friends and family. It’s as if H.R. himself – who does appear in these pages several times, never seeming to fully recognize his own past – is so fragmented that it takes a multitude of people to retrace his story. As he goes from being a PMA-obsessed punk rock daredevil to a devoted hardline Rasta and finally a sort of Syd Barrett-esque eccentric, H.R. often seems an unwilling participant in the events of his life, and certainly in the Bad Brains. Whether that was due to drugs or to (speculated) mental illness, perhaps he wasn’t, but it never distracted from the fact that he was responsible for some of the most thrilling, quicksilver punk rock of an era – inspiring Fugazi, Black Flag, Beastie Boys, Sublime – and was always willing to sabotage any efforts toward mainstream success to protect his art and integrity. Next is Substance: Inside New Order (Dey Street Books, 768 pages), the third in a series of sprawling memoirs by Peter Hook, bassist for Joy Division and New Order and a prime mover in the Manchester/“Madchester” music scene that revolved around Factory Records and the Hacienda nightclub. Though much of Hook’s public persona over the years has been loud protestation that he’s just one of the lads, it’s belied by this book, which covers an incredible and artistic evolution for the man and his music. Within the 27 years covered in this doorstop of a book, New Order goes from nervously playing leftover Joy Division songs to recording groundbreaking dance/rock hybrids to headlining arenas. Indeed, it was Peter Hook and his bandmates who brought ecstasy to Manchester, changing the face of British popular music into a wide, dazed smile. Hook morphs from a dour shirt-and-tie postpunker into a wildman rocker with long hair and leather pants, trading cider for cocaine. The story unfolds so fast and so chaotically even Hook is taken by surprise when he finds himself out of New Order forever. Hook serves as a mischievous and unreliable narrator throughout, reveling in the revenge of a life well (and excessively) lived.
Saving the best for last, we have Paul Morley’s recent David Bowie bio – The Age of Bowie (Gallery Books, 496 pages). It’s actually less a bio than A) an extended, highly subjective meditation on the man and his work, filtered through Morley’s own lifetime of Bowie fandom, written as he tried to process exactly what David Bowie’s death meant as a cultural phenomenon, and B) a delightful campaign of misinformation, itself an homage to one of the great chameleons and concealers in rock (and beyond) music. Which sounds like a pretentious conceit, but this book is perhaps the most touching piece of longform music writing that we’ve ever read. Age of Bowie follows a loosely chronological order but lends itself to long, gorgeous digressions into topics including Bowie’s role as Jareth in the Labyrinth, speculation that the subject matters of “Heroes” was in fact a clandestine love affair with Romy Haag, and subtle callbacks to jazz trumpeter Lester Bowie in David’s long musical oeuvre. The chapters that are merely repetitions of the phrase “David Bowie is” followed by alternately accurate, audacious or alternate-reality encapsulations are revelatory. And by the end, as Morley muses on Bowie’s gracefully staged and heartbreakingly well-managed “exit” (a curtain call-worthy gambit that included the release of Blackstar), while speculating on what comes next, you’ll be fighting back tears. Fascinating signs echo in these three tomes – there are always books close at hand, be it Bowie’s trunk full of books he takes everywhere, Hook’s stack of books next to the mixing board, or H.R.’s How to Win Friends and Influence
People – and after that, the Bible. Time becomes a fluid element, accelerating, decelerating, folding back in on itself, as if past and future versions of the protagonist might collide at any second (like some underground version of Back to the Future). There’s a sense that each artist is trying to keep up with his art – but there’s simply too much to do and too much going on around them. And in the end each, to varying degrees, takes a step back and disengages with what’s expected of them and who they are “supposed” to be, saving themselves in the process. And leaving the door open. For the next step.

BY SETH KUBERSKY JOHN DIDONNA AND KYLE STONE IN MY DEAR WATSON | PHOTO BY CHRIS BRIDGES
The 2017 Orlando Fringe (May
16-29) is about to crowd out all other arts coverage until June, but while that festival is famed for propelling artists out of Florida into the Big Apple (see Disenchanted!), it isn’t the only possible launching pad. My Dear Watson is proof positive. Born as a Rollins College master’s thesis, Jami-Leigh Bartschi’s Sherlock Holmes musical had a local production last year, and is now off-Broadway-bound as part of the prestigious New York Musical Festival, with the official support of the family of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. And if you can strike the appropriate notes, you could even join the show. If Bartschi’s name rings a bell, that’s because she’s been an artist and educator in the area for over 10 years. She’s been choir director at Wekiva High School since it opened in 2007, where she was named the school’s 2013 Teacher of the Year, and has served as musical director for various local theater companies including the Bay Street Players and Greater Orlando Actors Theatre. But her love of Sherlock Holmes goes back much further, to when her seventh-grade English teacher assigned The Hound of the Baskervilles. “Most of my classmates complained at having to read Victorian literature. I instantly fell in love,” Bartschi recalls. “So many heroes in literature are lovers and fighters. I loved that this hero was a thinker. Sherlock Holmes is intelligent, unemotional, and misunderstood as being uncaring simply because he is blunt and unemotive. I relate to that in a way that I have difficulty relating to other protagonists. I devoured all of the stories that I possibly could, and I was hooked.” Much like one of Holmes’s leaps of logic, Bartschi’s play began with a late-night lightning bolt of inspiration. “About nine years ago, I was at a music teachers’ convention in Tampa, and I literally woke up at 2 in the morning with this idea. I got out of bed and wrote it all

down. The whole idea came to me at once,” Bartschi says. “I knew I wanted to focus on the friendship between Holmes and Watson, so I wanted to take that friendship from beginning to end, so to speak. I also knew it had to have a mystery to solve, it had to involve Professor Moriarty, and it had to have strategically positioned but powerful moments of revelation where we see Holmes’ humanity. Everything fell into place fairly easily from there.” Early on, Bartschi sought approval from the Conan Doyle estate, since one of the stories she adapts isn’t yet in public domain. “They have been so easy to work with and so supportive from the very first step,” says Bartschi, who adds that the family gave her $6,000 toward funding the show, as well as connections to Sherlockian societies for marketing assistance. “I am astounded by their generosity and their kindness, and their interest in my work gives me a sense of validation that is beyond words.” After that initial idea, it took Bartschi three months to form a rough script, another three months to polish it, and another year to write and orchestrate the music. An initial 2014 production at Rollins helped Bartschi shape the work, particularly the humor, she says: “They laughed at things that I didn’t expect them to laugh at, and vice versa.”
That was followed last year by a staging at Orlando Shakes, directed by and starring John DiDonna as Holmes, with Kyle Stone in the title role. They will reprise those parts in New York, for which Bartschi says she’s streamlined the script even further, “taking out unnecessary dialogue to keep the action moving and the pace interesting.” My Dear Watson was originally submitted to the New York Musical Festival, which attracts media and scouts for production and licensing companies, last year. It was initially rejected, and was only resubmitted days before this year’s deadline. “I was beyond shocked when we were accepted,” Bartschi says. “I’m still riding this wave and seeing where it takes me, but I would love to see it in the MTI [Music Theatre International] catalog so it can be performed anywhere.” Ultimately, Bartschi hopes her Holmes musical will go on to stand alongside the myriad other well-regarded adaptations of his adventures, which date back to the earliest days of film. From the action-focused Guy Ritchie films to the modern-dress BBC series to CBS’ gender-swapped Watson, every interpretation of the iconic investigator takes its own angle. Bartschi says her objective was to focus on “authenticity and love. From the very beginning, I was committed to the integrity of the characters and the stories that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote, and I was committed to show the world that this character can love and be loved.” My Dear Watson’s NYMF run is at midtown Manhattan’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater (passes available soon at nymf.org).

SEA LEVEL Seafood-leaning Spanish resto off Park Avenue BY FAIYAZ KARA
presumed La Merce, the balls-out street fiesta held each September in Barcelona in honor of the city’s patron saint, was the inspiration for the off-Park-Avenue Spanish joint of the same name, and I thought it doubly ironic. For one, the festival sees a mass of revelers and celebrants, while the restaurant hosted a score of empty tables save ours. Further, the festival bids adios to summer and hola to the cooler days of fall and, well, we all know autumn barely registers here in Winter Park, Florida. Turns out I was only partially right. Yes, the restaurant honors Our Lady of Mercy (Mare de Déu de la Mercè) but, more so, it pays homage to Mercedes “La Merce” Hurtado, grandmother and recipe source to chef Carlos Hurtado. Mercedes and Carlos’s grandfather ran a restaurant in Malaga, Spain, so, naturally, many of La Merce’s dishes veer toward seafood. Unfortunately, we didn’t find espetos (barbecued sardines) listed anywhere on the menu, but seeing octopus carpaccio ($14) certainly roused our interest. Our friendly server’s eyes lit up when we placed the order, and what was delivered – round, thinly shaved slivers of octopus simply dressed with olive oil, sea salt and light pesto and layered on a large plate – certainly warranted her excitement for us.

BAD AS’S SANDWICH
This Milk District sandwich joint gives lunch reason to live, thanks to chef-owner John Collazo’s mighty fine creations. Multi-meat concoctions like the “Big Boy” are plain ridiculous and ridiculously good. Most sammies are served on a French roll, though the El Anormal #3 with adobo-roasted pork and peppery cantimpalo sausage gooeyed up with chipotle jack cheese, comes served on soft, flaky, subtly sweet egg bread. Simpler sandwiches, like the “Mafioso” with thinly shaved beef and the “Ninja” with crispy fried pork belly, shouldn’t be overlooked. Even vegetarians can get their fill of decadence with the ever-changing “Triple H,” which stands for “Happy Healthy Humans.” Closed Sundays. 207 N. Primrose Drive, 407-757-7191; $
FIREFLY KITCHEN & BAR The former Taps in Winter Park Village has transformed into Firefly, with a still-respectable list of brews as well as 48 wines available via dispensers. The atmosphere is damn fun, but the menu of burgers, flatbreads and Southern fare needs a bit of work. Glimmers of hope come from the kitchen in the fried chicken, a classic poutine with a peppery gravy, and desserts fashioned from recipes of the owner’s grandmother – the pecan pie and moonshine cake in particular. Open daily. 480 N. Orlando Ave., Winter Park, 407-677-5000; $$
REEL FISH COASTAL KITCHEN & BAR
Steadily improving fish house in the former Ravenous Pig space has a lot going for it, notably the owner’s zeal to make the venture a success. Also successful: a bracing ceviche of shark, snapper and hogfish; panko-breaded roasted oysters; and a quartet of fried green tomatoes atop zesty roasted pepper vinaigrette. There’s plenty of fried goodness for the fish camp lover in you, and if the whole roasted yellowtail snapper is available, get it. Closed Mondays. 1234 N. Orange Ave., Winter Park, 407-543-3474; $$$
LUKE’S KITCHEN AND BAR
There’s nothing novel at James Beard Award nominee Brandon McGlamery’s
Maitland resto, but there’s plenty good – from the design to the cocktail program to such dishes as diver scallop ceviche, flavorful bone-in ribeye, and stellar swordfish. Meats like to get plonked atop starches and veggies here, BTW. More goodness: Peppery (though expensive) crab cake and the au poivre burger, which is our new favorite. Open daily. 640 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland, 407-674-2400; $$$$
HUNGER STREET TACOS The gourmet taco trend gains traction at Hunger Street Tacos, named after the famed Mexico City strip. Brisket, chorizo and chicken tinga tacos are twice-tortillaed in proper fashion. Vegan (sautéed hibiscus taco) and vegetarian options (squash blossom quesadilla; vegetable tinga) will please the meatless crowd. Desserts like chocoflan and Key lime pie with toasted meringue are more than just mere afterthoughts. Closed Sundays. 2103 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park, 407-545-5998; $
CHEF ART SMITH’S HOMECOMIN’
Celebrity chef Art Smith returns to Disney with his aptly named restaurant showcasing all that’s good about Southern fare. His near-legendary fried chicken (get it with house-made doughnuts), shrimp and grits, fried catfish, chicken and dumpling soup, and pimento cheese keep the masses at Disney Springs fat and happy. A few bites of the hummingbird cake will definitely slow the pace of your park perambulations. There’s a nice selection of moonshine cocktails, too. Open daily. Disney Springs, 1602 E. Buena Vista Drive, 407-560-0100; $$$
IPHO NOODLE HOUSE
Vietnamese fare comes to Maitland with this second outpost of the Lake Mary original iPho. The interior won’t lift your spirits, but a savory golden pancake folded with shrimp, pork and bean sprouts will. Same goes for their signature pho – the broth veers toward the sweeter side, but it’s hearty and can be made heartier with the addition of oxtail. Bracing beef and pork noodle soup with lemongrass is a cold-sufferer’s delight. Don’t overlook their clay pots, and ask for the banh mi menu if you’re not handed one. Open daily. 156 Lake Ave., Maitland, 321-422-0181; $

WHEN ALL THE STATES TURNED RED The future is here in The Handmaid’s Tale – and it’s really fucked up BY PEG A LOI
n recent months, here in Trumplandia, American women have seen sexist behavior emboldened and misogynist rhetoric normalized. We’ve seen our hardwon reproductive rights continuously eroded. The chatter around new Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale, adapted from Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel, reflects its eerily accurate depiction of our present situation, a dark vision that values women primarily as vessels for childbearing. The series begins with a young couple and their daughter on the run, driving on a remote road near the Canadian border. We later learn this is June (Elisabeth Moss, in an incandescent performance) and her husband, Luke (O-T Fagbenle of HBO’s Looking). The car crashes, sirens loom closer, and Luke tells June to take daughter Hannah and run to a meeting point two miles away; he’ll be right behind her. Their
goodbye is hurried; June barely gets 30 seconds into the woods before she hears gunshots. She hides with her daughter, but armed men capture them. We then see June, now known as Offred, describing the small room she now lives in, her new reality as a Handmaid. We see her brought to a “Red Center,” where Handmaids are schooled in recent history and how to behave in their new roles as compulsory baby-makers. The matron running the center is Aunt Lydia (True Detective’s Ann Dowd, terrifyingly powerful), and she’s as skilled in quoting scripture as she is in wielding a taser. Piety and brutality walk arm in arm in this brave new world. As she enters the fray of the Handmaids for the first time, an exhausted, terrified Offred catches a glimpse of her best friend, Moira (Samira Wiley), but the two cannot reveal they know each other. Surveillance is omni-

present, and being under “the Eyes” is a constant threat to private thoughts or outlawed behaviors (like swearing, lesbianism, eating sugar or reading). The first four episodes streaming on Hulu take us deeply into the world that is the Republic of Gilead, formerly the U.S.A., forged by a violent takeover by an ultrafundamentalist Christian movement. In flashbacks, we see how things changed. Women’s bank accounts are seized on the same day they lose their jobs. Martial law is declared in response to “terrorism” and armed men are everywhere, their radios blurting unintelligible but ominous words. Protest marches are shut down with brute force. This recent “past” looks very much like our present: People jog with iPods, cafés serve complicated low-fat coffee drinks, and the police are outfitted with military-grade riot gear, sporting black knit hats like a bunch of Colorado hipsters. Handmaids are forced into service to “Commanders” and their wives, forced to undergo a bizarre impregnation ritual each month known as the Ceremony. Handmaids are only allowed outside to go grocery shopping, which they must do in pairs (in one scene, piped-in elevator music and the clean white interior of the store conjures a reference to that other womanhating dystopian film, 1975’s The Stepford Wives). Offred’s “partner,” with whom she walks to the market each day, is Ofglen (Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel), who strikes Offred as a pious “true believer.” But one day, after a brutal public ceremony in which the Handmaids are encouraged to punish a rapist, Ofglen and Offred let their guards down. But their newfound sisterhood is cut brutally short; the community these women inhabit is infected with paranoia and betrayal. Could it happen here? As of this writing, a new executive order is set to be signed by our president on the National Day of Prayer: This “religious liberty” order intends to give sweeping protections to people who discriminate against others (like same-sex couples seeking to marry, or women seeking birth control or abortions) based upon moral or religious grounds. Naturally, the ACLU and decent people everywhere will push back. But by the stroke of a pen, prejudice and hatred will be not only normalized, but protected under the law. At least in Gilead, they had to murder Congress and blow up the White House before they created a system encouraging the rape, torture, murder and enslavement of women in the name of fulfilling their “biological destiny.” Nolite te bastardes carborundorum, bitches.

A Quiet Passion
BY ST EVE SCHNEID ER OPENING THIS WEEK: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword If this thing
is a hit, Warner Bros. will have pulled off a feat impressive enough to make yanking a sword from a stone look like flossing. Guy Ritchie’s revisionist take on the Arthurian legend has been delayed more times now than he’d care to count, under the cover of every conceivable excuse (take advantage of the European vacation season; avoid the European ISIS season). The portents were strong and ominous that Ritchie was going to find considerably less success with Good King Artie than he had with Sherlock Holmes, and was instead about to offer up both the latest Warner dog and this year’s Mythology Reboot Nobody Could Be Convinced to Give a Shit About. But then some advance screenings in late April reached capacity so quickly that 50 extra theaters had to be added, and hopefuls were still being turned away. Maybe Merlin had reached into his robe and waved his wand in the direction of the entire affair, because it suddenly seemed as if a great many folks indeed were interested in seeing Ritchie portray the fabled boy king as a common hooligan headed toward a messy rendezvous with destiny. Only opening day will tell the full and final story, but I think I speak for quite a few people when I say it’s going to take a lot to make me forget Graham Chapman. (PG-13) Lowriders Thank God the media have caught
on to the rich diversity and profitability of the Latino market, so we can now have an entire feature-length drama based on a sight gag from Up in Smoke. Telemundo and co-star Eva Longoria helped bring us this portrait of a street artist whose forays into east L.A.’s car culture put him in the middle of a struggle between his criminal brother and his straightarrow dad. Developed from an original idea by renowned vato Brian Grazer. (PG-13)
A Quiet Passion Terence Davies (The House
of Mirth, The Deep Blue Sea) directs Cynthia Nixon in a biography of the great poet Emily Dickinson. “An absolute drop-dead masterwork,” says The New Yorker. “ “Delicate and measured,” says The Arizona Republic. “Can’t wait to see Kim Cattrall as Edna St. Vincent Millay!” says Perez Hilton. (PG-13) Snatched The lukewarm reaction to Amy
Schumer’s recent Netflix special indicates that the bloom may be off that particular cooch. But even if the mother-daughter comedy Snatched doesn’t end up representing a return to form, we should all feel grateful to it for ensuring that Goldie Hawn will not die with The Banger Sisters as the last item on her résumé. Plus, we’re getting it at the same time Kurt Russell is back on screens in Cardigans of the Galaxy 2! Throw in a new Black Crowes record, and we’d have ourselves a nostalgic trip back to that moment in time when the multigenerational coolness of one family gave us all hope for what we ourselves could attain in our personal lives. Wait a minute – that means we’d have to endure another Kate Hudson picture. Never mind. (R) ALSO PLAYING: Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer Richard Gere hooks an Israeli
national up with a fine-ass pair of shoes, then prepares to cash in when the guy gets elected prime minister. But their relationship proves to be a lot more complicated and controversial than one hand simply washing the other. (See, Gere would never have to face that kind of dilemma with the Dalai Lama. Because that guy doesn’t even wear shoes, amirite?) Variety calls the film a Jewish House of Cards. Which I guess makes it House of Canasta. (R) orlandoweekly.com

X GONNA GIVE IT TO YA
By the mid-’80s, after four impeccable records, the feeling was palpable – X was the greatest American rock & roll band, on the brink of something huge. Critics loved them. Dick Clark loved them.

SPOON WITH TENNIS, HOUSE OF BLUES, MAY 2
Spoon have proven to be a model of success in management of both art and career, no small feat for a lifer indie band. They’ve come an extraordinarily long way from a playfully weird and spiky ’90s guitar band to a contemporary, arena-sized alternative-pop sensation (the massive synth rig of their current setup is proof of that mileage). Somehow, they’ve managed to not just last but also navigate an incredibly dramatic metamorphosis with quality and soul intact. It’s been 10 years since they were last here, at the Anti-Pop Music Festival. They were already indie-big then, enough to be a festival headliner. Well, look at them now. They’ve returned to the spotlight of a prime venue with swank, primetime stage production before a big, buzzing crowd – all earned on sheer merit. Back in my 2007 interview with band co-founder Jim Eno, we discussed the upending tectonic shifts happening in the music industry and how Spoon were maneuvering the uncertain ground on the cusp of a new paradigm. They were making it work pretty well then. Still, they probably thought the stratosphere of their brief but ill-fated dalliance with the major labels back in the indie-rock sweepstakes of the ’90s was a dream aborted. Little did anyone know that – through good, hard work – they’d ultimately chug their way back and ascend to the heights they’re now enjoying via the indie circuit. But Cinderella stories do happen. And if anyone deserves this royal treatment, it’s these guys. As if Spoon’s first Orlando show in a
decade weren’t enough, the bill was even more exceptional with the inclusion of Tennis, who are one of those acts that are as much a state of mind as they are a band. Their music – or more precisely, the microcosm it conjures – is its own beautiful world of tuneful nostalgia. It’s a blend of indie and oldies forever adrift and romanticized in a womb perpetuated by the frequent and well-documented sailing junkets at sea of married collaborators Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley. Between their perfect pop facility and the golden rays they invoke, it’s all air and ease. Still, Tennis’ records are meticulous with vibes, precision and specificity. So it’s to their considerable credit that their live performance glowed with such fidelity, stroking their intimate but rich lovers’ songs with vivid exactitude. It was a showing worthy of the particularly good reception they received from this crowd. Seriously, people actually threw flowers onstage.
LILLIE MAE WITH BEN HARPER & THE INNOCENT CRIMINALS, HARD ROCK LIVE, MAY 1
Nashville’s Lillie Mae is emerging into the world packing a lot of honors. In her native country circles, the young musician already has a long history in family acts, most notably Jypsi, an all-sibling group that charted on country Top 40. Outside that, she’s a Third Man artist and known as Jack White’s violinist, so she also comes tall with indie cred. And she arrived in town on the sails of a debut full-length album (Forever and Then Some) – a starspangled, White-produced work featuring
Spoon have come an extraordinarily long way from a playfully weird and spiky ’90s guitar band to a contemporary, arena-sized alternativepop sensation, all with quality and soul intact. notable guests like Old Crow Medicine Show, the Dead Weather and the Howlin’ Brothers (who were in last week’s column) – that was released just a couple weeks before this show. Lillie Mae’s music is a modern Americana sound that’s a blend of tradition and edge. Despite some of her past in mainstream country, though, her solo material doesn’t resort to dumb youngcountry sass to prove it’s legit. Instead, it’s a dance of guts and grace that pairs folk fineness with some genuine honky-tonk step. Her voice – the clear jewel in the mix – is that balance embodied, lining its loveliness with just enough steel. And even though she’s stepping out on her own passage, the family bonds continue to endure in studio and on stage with some siblings still by her side. Apparently, headliner Ben Harper is not just something that everyone graduates from after college. Still, he’s nothing if not reliable. But even though the guy’s soulful, he’s too often content to groove with a soft, gooey sensibility, which is really only good when talking about a candy bar. firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com

The Amazing Acro-Cats THEATER
Herding cats is no big deal for Samantha Martin, the trainer and animal welfare advocate behind the Amazing Acro-Cats. She’s been teaching cats to jump hurdles, balance on balls and play in their own rock band (The Rock-Cats) for more than a decade, striving to keep the furballs mentally sharp between their day gigs in TV, film and advertising. The result is an adorable live show that somehow blends a kitty playing a cowbell with information on cat training and animal rescue. One of Martin’s cats even broke the Guinness World Record for longest jump by a domestic cat, leaving us saying “meow wow!” and “they have a category for what?” The cats might not always do exactly what Martin asks, but that just lends credibility to the Acro-Cats as a rock band and proves, once again, that cats don’t need our approval – but they’ll be damned if you don’t take the time to appreciate them. If this is what everyone means when they talk about crazy cat ladies, hand over the kitties and sign us up. – Abby Stassen 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. | Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, 201 S.

Taste of Soul EVENTS
Beach bod season is at long last upon us, but dream on if you think that means you’ve got to completely sidestep the soulful temptations put out by dishes like on-the-bone ribs, hoppin’ john, fried okra, ham hocks, and biscuits and gravy. If you pair such dishes with a serving of classic disco and a Soul Train line, then those quickly accrued calories will fall right off in a boogie-inspired sweat. If this scene piques your interest, then do yourself a solid and snag a ticket before booking it over to the Taste of Soul this weekend where prime examples of Southern cuisine, classic board games, and arts and crafts are available from local vendors and restaurants. Musical acts play unforgettables from Soul Train legends like Marvin Gaye, Chic, Cameo, and Earth Wind and Fire, which we assume you can dig if you’re still breathing. Those hesitant to commit should remember that the beach bod is only protected from soul food via disco once a year, so failing to miss this funky park outing would be the wise cat’s move. – Nick Wills 11 a.m.-7 p.m. | Festival Park, 2911 E.

OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK
Standard Sideshow EVENTS
The parking-lot market scene has received a real boost locally by turning what used to be pop-up crunchy flea markets into parties with the addition of live music, food trucks and beer. Standard Motorcycle Co., a co-op garage for creative gearheads, throws their quarterly party this weekend. It’s kind of like the also-quarterly Will’s A Faire on Mills Avenue, but with a
little more of a biker vibe. Browse goods from local vintage clothing dealers, record collectors and artisans while listening to live tunes from the Getbye, Gary Lazer Eyes and Ancient Sun. Test the power of your ride by hooking it up to a mobile dynamometer. You can even tweak your style a bit by getting a haircut or tattoo from Alchemy Salon or Lowbrow Art Productions while you’re there. Afterward, wristband-wearing attendees can head downtown for a private party at the brand-new Ace Café. And if you don’t have a motorcycle yet, we’re sure you’ll find someone who can hook you up. – Thaddeus McCollum noon-6 p.m. | Standard Motorcycle Co., 2545 Industrial Blvd. | 407-720-3995 | standardmotorcycleco.com | free
Don’t Pitch It, Fix It LEARNING
So many things that used to be classed as old-fashioned drudgery are now trendy – milling flour, sewing clothing, hand-writing letters. Add to the list of useful skills that have fallen by the wayside fixing your broken crap. The modern mindset of “throw it away and buy a new one” has become so embedded that it actually costs less to buy a new toaster than to have a broken one repaired, even if it’s a simple fix. The cost may be low in dollars, but we say it’s way too high in self-respect. This workshop is full of mighty people who have the wherewithal to darn that sock, defuzz that radio, mend that wobbly chair leg, and they’ll do it for you and show you how on Saturday. Don’t be that lame lightweight who throws away a vintage turntable because it spins unevenly. Use your own two hands to replace the belt and while you’re at it, flip double birds at rampant overconsumption and the culture of waste. – Jessica Bryce Young noon-4 p.m. | Winter Park Public Library, 460 E.

Mother’s Day at Leu Gardens

Before you go buy the largest bottle of Japanese cherry blossom body lotion from the nearest Bath & Body Works and ruin another Mother’s Day, think about the possibilities. You could disappoint your mom with the same gift you got her last year, or, for 10 bucks, you could spend a nice afternoon with the person who puts up with your shit by strolling through the beautiful pathways of Harry P. Leu Gardens. You’d only have to pay for yourself because admission for mothers is free this weekend. Take your mamá on a tour of the historic Leu House or explore Florida’s largest rose garden. You can bring your own food for a picnic on the patio, but save room for dessert – Sugarbuzz Dezert Company and Peak Season Pops are setting up to sell sweet deliciousness. – Monivette Cordeiro 9 a.m.-5 p.m. | Harry P.

The old saying goes that the only sure things in life are death and taxes, but if you grow up in Florida, there’s one more inevitability: Jimmy Buffett. From tiki bars to beachside cafés to a Margaritaville-themed retirement community (coming soon to Daytona Beach, natch), the 70-year-old Alabama native’s discography has become the de facto soundtrack for the Sunshine State. And it’s easy to hear why: Yes, the songs often mention things like boats and margaritas, but beneath that, there’s a weariness – an impulse to say “fuck it” and go grab a drink – that resonates with the Floridian mindset. Take the wistful subject of “A Pirate Looks at Forty,” who spends the song recapping his life as an “over-40 victim of fate,” then concludes with the desperate line “I feel like I’ve drowned, gonna head uptown.” Though his output has ventured dangerously close to self-parody in recent years (see his 2013 duet with Toby Keith, “Too Drunk to Karaoke”), Parrotheads across the state – each masking their inner sadness with a deceptive shell of Hawaiian shirts, leis and nautical hats – are expected to make the journey to see Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band take the stage at Amway Center.

Bishop Briggs MUSIC
Los Angeles via Hong Kong via Tokyo via London singer Bishop Briggs, in a headspinningly short span of time, has already racked up an incredible musical CV that includes a stint opening for Coldplay (don’t hold that against her), a performance on The Tonight Show and a headlining slot at SXSW – but this meteoric rise is not just the hollow zombie machinations of the internet hype machine; the focus is squarely where it should be, on Briggs’ earthy and 10-ton voice, married to state-of-the-groove electronics and beats – or even married to a Cold War Kids song (the “So Tied Up” collab). On this, her first solo headlining tour, expect powerhouse versions of singles “The River” and “Wild Horses,” and material from her eponymous debut EP. One to watch. Oh wait, you can do just that, in person. – Matthew Moyer with Shaed, Manatee Commune | 7 p.m. | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thesocial.org | $18-$20

The Casket Girls MUSIC
Mysterious dreamwave trio the Casket Girls hail from Savannah, Georgia, itself a mysterious repository of Deep South secrets and curses and desires, and also some of the best and most forbidding cemeteries in the South. The project is an unholy alliance between witchy and chameleonic siblings Phaedra and Elsa Greene and Ryan Graveface (he of Graveface Records, a taxidermy shop/record store and label that has released the likes of Xiu Xiu and Black Moth Super Rainbow), crafting Southern gothic electro-pop, all baroque and tuneful whistling past the graveyard. New album The Night Machines is humid, twilit and disorienting, slightly and pleasingly out of phase with the present moment. Live, everything becomes bigger: the personnel, the songs, the performance gestures. Casket Girls are fresh from a series of dates supporting shoegaze legends Slowdive on a short run of heart-stopping U.S. shows; expect an even higher level of incandescence. – Matthew Moyer with Dogs in Reverse | 7 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $8-$10

B Y D A N S AVA G E
My husband is nearly 20 years older than me, which was never an issue early in our relationship. However, for approximately the last eight years, we have not been able to have fulfilling sex because my husband can’t keep an erection for more than a few thrusts. I love my husband and I am committed to our family, but I miss full PIV sex. I’m still fairly young and I enjoy sex, but I feel like I am mourning the death of my sex life. I miss the intimate connection and powerful feeling of sex with a man. My husband tries to please me, but oral sex is just OK and toys don’t have the same effect. We have tried Viagra a few times, but it gave him a terrible headache. I try to brush it off because I don’t want to embarrass him. I am curious about casual relationships, but I fear they wouldn’t stay casual. Also, I would feel guilty being with another man even though my husband said I could do it one time. On one hand, I feel like I should be able to have a fulfilling sex life. But on the other hand, I don’t want to be a cheater. Now On To Having Awkwardly Realistic Discussions It’s not cheating if you have your husband’s permission, NOTHARD, but fucking another man could still blow up your marriage – even if you manage to keep it casual. Story time: I knew this straight couple. They were good together, they loved each other, and they had a strong sexual connection. (Spoiler alert: my use of the past tense.) The woman was all about monogamy, but her boyfriend had always wanted to have a threesome. She didn’t want to be the reason he never got to do something he’d been fantasizing about since age 13, so she told her boyfriend that if the opportunity ever presented itself, he could go for it. So long as the sex was safe and he was honest with her, he could have a threesome one time. The opportunity presented itself, the sex was safe, he was honest – and my friend spent a week ricocheting between devastated and furious before finally dumping her devastated and flummoxed boyfriend. During a drunken postmortem, my friend told me she wanted her boyfriend to be able to do it but didn’t want him to actually do it. She didn’t want to be the reason he couldn’t; she wanted to be the reason he didn’t. So her permission to have a threesome “one time” was a test (one he didn’t know he was taking) and a trap (one he couldn’t escape from). I urged my friend to take her boyfriend back – if he would have her – but he’d touched another woman with the tip of his penis (two women, actually), which meant he didn’t love her the way she thought he did, the way she deserved to be loved, etc., and consequently he couldn’t be allowed to touch her with the tip of his penis ever again. 52
ORLANDO WEEKLY ● MAY 10-16, 2017
Back to you, NOTHARD: My first reaction to your letter was “You’ve got your husband’s OK to fuck some other dude – go for it.” Then I reread your letter and thought, “Wait, this could be a test.” You say you’ve brushed off the issue to spare your husband’s feelings, but he may sense it’s an issue and, consciously or subconsciously, this is his way of finding out. If you take him up on his offer “one time,” and you make the mistake of being honest with him about it, he may be just as devastated as my friend was. So don’t take your husband up on his offer – not yet. Have a few more conversations about your sex life instead and address nonmonogamy/openness generally, not nonmonogamy/openness as a work-around for his dick. There may be some solo adventures he’d like to have, there may be invigorating new sexual adventures you could enjoy as a couple (maybe he’d love to go down on two women at once?) or he may rescind or restate his offer to let you fuck some other dude one time. Get clarity – crystal clarity – before proceeding. Finally, NOTHARD, there are other erectile dysfunction drugs out there, drugs that may not have the same side effects for your husband. And low to very low doses of Viagra – doses less likely to induce a headache – are effective for some men. Good luck. Partner and I adopted a 2.5-year-old mutt a month ago. We are also trying to get pregnant and are having sex every day for 15-day stretches a month. Dog does NOT like being shut out – we love dog but do not love the idea of him being in the room. Should we get over it? Should dog get over it? What is dog/human sexual privacy etiquette? Don’t Oversee Getting It On I’m not into pups, human or otherwise, but I live with two actual dogs and, man, if those dogs could talk. Some dogs loudly object to their owners fucking, others don’t. If your dog barks when you’re fucking, I can see why you’d want to keep him out of the room. But if he just wants to curl up in a corner and lick his ass for a minute before dozing off, what’s the big deal? I am a 30-year-old woman with some sexual hang-ups I’d like to get past for the sake of my husband. When I was 14, I was in a relationship with a guy who wasn’t nice to me. One particular incident sticks in my mind: He pulled my hair and tried to force my head down while I was saying no and trying to get away. He shoved me and called me a prude. Another time, he convinced me to let him go down on me (I finally agreed) but then bit me. I eventually broke up with him after spending too much time putting up with the crap. For a long time, I hated oral sex and freaked out ●
“TRAPS AND TRIGGERS”
at any sexual interaction. I had a great college boyfriend who always asked, “Is this OK?” and was generally very attuned to any “no” signals I gave, which was a turnon for me. I got over my past crappy experiences. My husband is all about what gives us both pleasure, but he has always been up-front about being interested in some (tame) kinky stuff. I am still turned on by “Is this OK?” and eye contact during sex, but any time we try to do anything even a little off the wall – me tied up, blindfolds, etc. – my ears start ringing and I feel like I can’t breathe. I’m trying to find a way to spice things up and fulfill my husband’s desires, and I cannot find a way around it. How do we move past “just” vanilla? Reconsidering Otherwise Unlikely GGG Habits If your shitty early teenage sexual experiences are still affecting you 16 years later, ROUGH, that suggests PTSD. Getting past this will be gradual, it may require therapy – counseling, a support group, a shrink. While you’re getting help, ROUGH, you and your partner can explore some mild non-vanilla moves. Mindful breathing, like the kids are into these days, may help, and so will incorporating some soothing sensory input, e.g., soft lighting, calming music, scented something-or-other if you enjoy scented somethings. And whatever your husband is doing – whatever you two are doing together – he can and should ask “Is this OK?” at every step. It turns you on and it makes you feel safe. You need to feel safe and in control. Slowly, slowly, slowly you may be able to advance to more aggressive play. It’s possible, however, that rough sex might be permanently off the table for you, ROUGH, and that’s not something you should feel guilty about. There are other ways to spice up your sex life, other (tame) kinks that don’t trigger you.
