Readers react. Last week, we reported on a new political committee, Floridians Against Recreational Marijuana, focused on keeping recreational marijuana off the 2020 ballot. “Our coalition has come together to defeat this dangerous ballot initiative, which will drive an increase in health care prices, increase costs on businesses and kill jobs and increase the burden on taxpayers that will pay for the costs associated with recreational marijuana,” said Brian Swensen, manager of the antilegalization campaign. Meanwhile, competing political committee Make It Legal Florida, which has the backing of companies linked to two of Florida’s licensed medical marijuana operators, has submitted 108,345 petition signatures, easily topping a 76,632-signature threshold. @Erica Bass Wrong side of history. Legal is coming.
The House has already put forth legislation to remove it from the schedule and to legalize recreational pot nationwide. @Dave Christian The beer and spirits lobbyists are working overtime. @Edwin Hernandez Florida has too many conservative variables to deal with: big money, religious zealots, old people afraid of drugs. I don’t see Florida going recreational in my lifetime. Besides Florida has so many other more pressing issues like the incredibly poor pay and lack of education. @Daniel Schumacher Boomers were fine fighting for cannabis in the ’60s and ’70s but somewhere along the way they let Nixon and Reagan win and we’re only now restarting that struggle your generation forgot to fight for in the ’80s and ’90s. @Mathew Borkoski Sorry Florida, but no.
@Jay Michael I moved from Florida to Washington. Legal weed comes with its own issues, but having the legal option to enjoy it is awesome. This is going to be a non-issue as soon as the Repubs are out of office in D.C.
@Jim Scott Ohhh the Christians don’t want anyone to have any fun. Come to Canada, the water and air are clean, healthcare is for all, and the best weed in the world is legal!

Florida wildlife management could permit bear hunting again, Planet Hollywood allegedly took the money and ran, our first ramen-ya closes and other news you may have missed. »
Florida’s bear-management plan could again include hunting: Techniques to manage Florida’s black bear population over the next decade, including the possibility of regulated hunting, will be among the items the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission considers in a meeting next week. The updated bear-management plan is slated for discussion the morning of Dec. 11, with public comments limited to “no more than three hours,” according to an agenda posted on the commission’s website. A 209-page draft report summarizes several population-management techniques that could be expanded or used, including contracted shooting and trapping; fertility control; manipulating habitats by reducing vegetation near suburban and urban areas; regulated hunts; and relocating adult female bears and their 3- to 4-month-old cubs.
State of Florida sues Planet Hollywood for taking job creation money before ghosting: The Florida Department of Economic
Opportunity has filed a lawsuit against Planet Hollywood International, alleging the company did not comply with requirements after receiving $288,000 in state incentives to add jobs in Orlando. Under the agreement with the state, Planet Hollywood International was supposed to meet job-creation benchmarks and file regular reports. But the Department of Economic Opportunity alleges that the company did not submit required reports or comply with monitoring. The lawsuit said the department terminated the agreement in 2016 and demanded repayment of the $288,000 but did not receive the money.
State attorney general presses Florida Supreme Court to stop cities from banning Styrofoam: Attorney General Ashley
Moody’s office urged the Florida Supreme Court to reject an appeal in a battle over the city of Coral Gables’ attempt to ban the use of Styrofoam food containers. The city contends, in part, that the state pre-emption of the ordinance violates local home-rule powers. But in a 12-page brief, lawyers in Moody’s office said the case “breaks no new ground regarding the nature of the Legislature’s power to pre-empt local ordinances” and, as a result, the Supreme Court should not take it up. In a brief filed in October, Coral Gables asked the Supreme Court to hear the case and pointed to potentially broader implications that could leave “local governments powerless to regulate not only the sale and use of polystyrene and other environmentally damaging materials, but also other fields where the Legislature might similarly claim total preemption without meeting constitutional standards.”
Florida’s Governor and AG want to fine and remove from office local leaders who pass gun rules: Pointing to a “hierarchical
relationship” with local governments, the state last month asked an appeals court to uphold a 2011 law that has threatened tough penalties if city and county officials approve gun regulations. Lawyers in the offices of Attorney General Ashley Moody and Gov. Ron DeSantis filed a 42-page brief arguing that the 1st District Court of Appeal should overturn a circuit judge’s ruling that said parts of the law were unconstitutional. The law, for example, could lead to local officials facing $5,000 fines and potential removal from office for passing gun regulations.

A WAR ON THE POOR And more thoughts on the Trump White House from a long holiday weekend BY JE FFREY C. BILL M A N

In any event, the news tsunami awaits the second one returns. (A narwhal tusk? Seriously?) So instead of picking one story from the deluge to focus on, this week’s column threads together several smaller musings – seven, as it turns out. Ready?

Next week, a Department of Justice inspector general report will reportedly clear Page and others of bias, but the damage is done. One anecdote from the Beast story: In December 2017, the night before deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein – then overseeing Robert Mueller’s investigation – was to testify to Congress, a DOJ spokeswoman offered reporters a salacious, contextfree selection of Page and Strzok’s texts. In the two years since, Trump has relentlessly targeted Page as an avatar for the Deep State and demanded to know why she isn’t in prison. At a rally in October, Trump simulated an orgasm as he mentioned her name.

Three reasons: 1) Presidents typically win re-election Any progress on health care will require 1) a Democratic unless there’s a recession; 2) the U.S. isn’t expected to see president, 2) a Democratic House and Senate, and 3) a a recession in 2020; and 3) the Electoral College tilts in 4.

Just halfway through the tour, Offerman had already he phrase “renaissance man” gets thrown around way too often, but sometimes clichés make perfect logged over 4,000 miles by the time he called Orlando sense, and that seems the case with Nick Offerman, Weekly on a Saturday afternoon, driving a silver Chevy who makes his way to Orlando this Thursday with a show Impala between Washington and Philadelphia. Like most comedians, he’s partial to the quiet called “All Rise.” The press release is a reflection afforded him on the road. rare one worth quoting directly, since it ALL RISE: NICK OFFERMAN, He loves to drive, as one might expect, embodies the measured and somewhat AMERICAN HUMORIST but he isn’t fussy about it. “I prefer an antiquarian approach to language that 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5 automatic,” he says. “I grew up driving he has become famous for. “My aim in Hard Rock Live, stick on my family’s farm.

the author of four New York Times best-sellers: Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living (2013), Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom With America’s Gutsiest Troublemakers (2015), Good Clean Fun: Misadventures in Sawdust at Offerman Woodshop (2016) and The Greatest Love Story Ever Told (2018).

The world’s most famous living carpenter (sorry, Bob Vila) even has a brand of Lagavulin scotch whiskey named after him, which may be the most fitting tribute of all. In keeping with his decidedly old-school aesthetic, the All Rise Tour mostly bypasses the big rooms in major cities that the average performer might aspire to, focusing instead on classic venues in smaller towns. “One of the things I love about touring,” he says, “is I get to see this amazing array of old jewel-box theaters that communities have been able to preserve.” The tour began in Thackerville, Oklahoma, on July 20, loping along through 36 other stops, some of which could have been added for their names alone: the Lied Center in Lincoln,

“I’m a theater actor who happened to get lucky with TV and film, so this is all fairly new to me. I don’t know how Celine Dion does it!” Nebraska; the Criterion in Oklahoma City; the Chevalier Center in Medford, Massachusetts; the City National Grove in Anaheim; the Palace Theatre in Columbus, Ohio; the Masonic in San Francisco; the Stiefel Theatre in St. Louis; the wonderful Tabernacle in Atlanta; and the eponymous Kalamazoo State Theatre. There are not one, but two different Orpheum Theatres on the tour, one in Madison and the other in Wichita. So which is better? “I feel like the Madison one is in a little better shape,” Offerman says judiciously. “Madison, for my money, is one of the most charismatic towns in the country. The town is on an isthmus strip of land between two lakes. The map looks like it could have been drawn by Tolkien. But Wichita is no slouch, either. Houdini actually performed there, almost exactly 100 years ago.” There are also a couple of the more classic high-end venues on the tour, including New York’s Beacon Theatre, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the legendary Ryman in Nashville. “I suppose, given my druthers and my dusty aesthetic, I prefer the 150-year-old vaudeville halls,” he says, “but I’ve played my fair share of new venues too.” (Like, for instance, Hard Rock Live, which hosts this Orlando date.) Offerman’s espousal of old-school values has led to him being sometimes mislabeled as a conservative, but his politics are firmly progressive. He’s voting Democrat, no mat-
ter what. “Every candidate looks like they were carved in Heaven, compared to the incumbent.” On a personal level, he leans more toward Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, but he basically likes them all. “I hope that we can come down on the side of boldness,” he says, “but of course we have to win the day, first and foremost.” Will he ever run for office himself? “Nope.” One area where he does actually agree with Trump is the need for expanded tradeschool education, which is just as vital to America’s future as the ongoing push for STEM training. But that’s easier said than done, especially given who’s saying it. “The problem with having a jackass like him as president is that when he does say something you agree with, it’s almost a bad thing,” Offerman grouches. “He says something, and then it’s points against the subject.” Having “run across him” around New York in the years before his election, an impression was made long ago, and Offerman’s description is succinct: “He’s a pompous boob. I think everyone found him laughable.” Ultimately, the All Rise Tour is a labor of love – love for the art, love for the people, and love for the influences that made him who he is. Chief among these is the author Wendell Berry, of whom Offerman is downright evangelistic in his praise. “In a nutshell, he’s in his 80s,” he says, “a Kentucky agrarian who’s known for his fiction, his essays and his poetry. Of all the writers I love, he’s my favorite, because I think he has the most common sense. Bringing a farmer’s point of view to the perils of society. ‘The problems of consumerism,’ he’s been calling it for decades. Start with his short stories; there’s a book called Fidelity and one called Watch With Me. His essays will knock you on your rear end!” Trained in the theater scene, Offerman has seamlessly transitioned into almost every possible form of performing art, but the logistics of it all remain confounding. “Booking a tour is incredibly difficult,” he says. “I’m a theater actor who happened to get lucky with TV and film, so this is all fairly new to me. I don’t know how Celine Dion does it!” And there’s that laugh, one of the most distinctive there ever was. It sounds like a gimmick, but it most assuredly is not. His is among the world’s most recognizable faces, but as he cruises the open road, Offerman blends in. His tastes are simple, his pleasures basic. “Once I learned that every dollar comes out of my tour income, I said ‘OK, no entourage.’ A Holiday Inn Express is plenty luxurious.” email@example.com orlandoweekly.com

Orlando native Chris French, a star of the national tour of Broadway hit The Play That Goes Wrong, discusses what’s going right at the Dr. Phillips Center This week, the national tour of Broadway’s The Play That Goes Wrong arrives at the Dr. Phillips Center with Orlando native Chris French in a central role. I spoke with French ahead of opening night to learn what life is like playing dead in this slapstick smash hit.
Orlando Weekly: What is The Play That Goes Wrong about, and what role do you play? Chris French: We talk about this being an Agatha Christie–meets–Monty Python world. It’s a fictional play by a fictional author, it’s an amateur theater group that’s trying their hardest to produce a quality murder mystery, and they just get stymied at every corner. My character is Jonathan Harris; he is new to the drama society, and he plays Charles Haversham in The Murder of Haversham Manor. He is the person who has been murdered, so I do spend a fair amount of time as a dead body, but as things go wrong, I get exposed as still living, and I take more than a few hits as the other members of the drama society treat me as though I were an actual corpse. In a weird meta way, the characters who are more senior in the drama society that is putting on the murder mystery were the people who have already been attached to the play before. Me and the other new cast members are the people who are new to the drama society, so that was a little bit of art mirroring life. How do you keep the show’s slapstick seeming spontaneous yet still safe? The play takes place on opening night. That’s huge, because opening night has totally different energy than any other night. The nerves are there, the excitement is there. That’s something we all really all try to double down on and commit to before the play every night. We all wish

I’m looking forward to seeing her, because she had so much to do with my getting serious about a career and life in theater. What has being an Actors’ Equity union member done for you? I feel super protected and supported by my union. Like all unions, it’s based in solidarity, and there are so many more protections in place for us as actors and stage managers. Being able to work on a team together that way, we all know that we are working towards the same goals and with one another. My initial appointment for this national tour was an “EPA” – Equity Principal Audition – which are auditions that are required by Actors’ Equity.

I’m very excited to be performing at Usually when things go wrong in our the Dr. Phillips Center because I’ve never play, it’s as if the play has gone right. I have been before. I grew up going to shows at a bit in the show where I kick a door open, the Bob Carr; we had a season subscription and in one of our previews the door flew from the time I was in middle school. I completely off its hinges and fell to the saw Phantom and Cats and everything that ground. One of my castmates had a friend came through there, so I’m excited to be there that evening, and he had actually seen on the other side of that.

Boarding school How to build a beautiful, bountiful charcuterie spread BY H O L LY V. KA P H E R R
he best thing about charcuterie? There’s no cooking required (and, usually, minimal slicing and dicing)! You’re really just arranging cured meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables in a way that encourages snacking, mixing and matching flavors and textures. It’s the ultimate power move for non-cooks who still want to entertain elegantly. The other best thing is that while there are guidelines – see below – there are no real rules. Go as splashy or as restrained as makes sense for your gathering; lean to the sweet and creamy or the sharp and salty as your tastes lead you. You can even skip the board altogether, like our charcuterie spirit guide Haley Stephens, whose work is pictured here and on the cover. Stephens is an Orlandoan transplanted to Batesville, Arkansas, where she and her artist husband Brice now run the Pinto Coffee & Comida, a java-and-taco joint with strong Stardust Video & Coffee vibes. “I host a farm-to-table dinner every year, and this year the board asked me to create something for appetizers,” Stephens says. “This is what I did! It was fun and delicious; also it photographed beautifully.” Rule No. 1: For weeks leading up to the event, Stephens searched Pinterest for ideas to get a feel for how she wanted the tables to look. “I did the best I could sourcing locally, which was a challenge since there isn’t a charcuterie or butcher around that cures meats,” she says. “[So] I purchased some of the meats from Sam’s Club. Totally not farm-to-table but, when in Rome …” she shrugs. (That’s Rule No. 2: Don’t sweat the details; nothing in life is 100 percent pure.) “I was fortunate to source some local cheeses from a goat farm and I have some friends that make their own smoked venison sausage. We used freshbaked breads that my friends and I made. I made hummus, pesto, and a girlfriend of mine made little cheese crackers.”
ORLANDO WEEKLY ● DEC. 4-10, 2019 ● orlandoweekly.com
“When assembling the table I didn’t think about placement at all,” Stephens continues. “It was very organic. A friend of mine made the beautiful cheese board tables and I covered them with Saran to protect the food and the table. There was a line of people bringing me platters and dishes and I just went for it. It happened so fast and it just flowed. “I want to do this over and over,” Stephens laughs, “it’s so beautiful!” We agree. For those less naturally blessed with charcu-talent, who fear the setup might not “just flow,” our guidelines for choosing and arranging your own spread are below. Draft the players carefully. Cheeses: The rule of thumb is one cow, one sheep and one goat. But rules were meant to be broken, right? Buy what you like. If you’re stumped, a good cheesemonger can help. Cured meats: There are a bevy to choose from. Some faves: Genoa salami, mortadella, capicola and prosciutto. You might also try slices of pâté en croûte or rillettes (usually pork or duck), which generally come in a cute jar. Spreads: A couple of little ramekins full of interesting jams or honeys add the sweetness and acidity those fatty, unctuous cured meats and cheeses really need to sing. Crunchy things: These usually work as the vehicle for the cheeses, meats and spreads. Whether you choose crackers or veggies, stick with neutral flavors that won’t overwhelm or compete with what you’ve already got going on. Nuts are also a great option; bonus points for toasting them first. Flavor bombs: Think olives, pickled peppers, giardiniera, cornichons, caper berries; one big flavor working as an excellent palate cleanser in preparation for the next bite. Just go easy on the spice. You’re looking for flavor, not total tastebud annihilation.
ou want to have your friends over for the holidays, but coordinating evening schedules is basically impossible unless you plan six months in advance – which you did not. Fix: Throw a brunch. It doesn’t have to be fancy (or it can be!) but morning schedules are usually a lot less packed than they are after the sun sets, so chances are your friends are free.
PHOTOS AND FOOD STYLING BY HALEY STEPHENS
Choose your canvas. There are a ton of options here, and you should consider non-servingware, too. Scout out a countertop supplier and look for scraps of granite, quartz, marble or butcher block. Some housewares stores sell beautiful mother-of-pearl, metal or wooden coffee-table trays. Think outside the porcelain platter, but be sure to choose a vessel proportionate to the number and volume of ingredients you’ll be including on the board. Arrange and rearrange. Start with the cheeses. Place them on opposite sides or corners of your board. Then place any spreads or flavor bombs you have in ramekins adjacent to the cheese. Symmetry is not necessary, but it is more pleasing to the eye. Fan out slices or rolls of cured meats to line the borders of the cheese wheels or ramekins. From there, fill the remaining space with crackers or sliced veggies. Ready, set, curate. When it comes to grazing boards, there’s a balance to strike. It should look attractive without being intimidating – none of that “too beautiful to eat” stuff, OK? – and plentiful without looking cluttered and incohesive. Just remember to take a picture before anyone dives in; this beauty is ephemeral.
WHAT TO SERVE Savory: An egg dish you can make in a flash is a must. The last thing you want to do is your short-order cook impression, sweating and slaving over a stove making huevos to order; forget that. The easiest option is a slow-cooker breakfast casserole you can set and forget the night before. For a more gourmet gathering, try a strata, a frittata, a bread pudding or a quiche. They’re all easy to make for a crowd, come together quickly and are delicious even at room temp in case of stragglers. Sweet: Head to one of our best bakeries early and pile a box full of muffins, kouign amann, croissants, streusel bars, or fresh donuts or bagels. Feeling ambitious? A ring of monkey bread in a Bundt pan (aka “tear and share” to you Great British Baking Show fans) is easy and can be adapted to plenty of different flavors. Impress further with a tin of fluffy fresh cinnamon rolls, but you’ll have to start those sweet breads the night before to give them enough time to rise. WHAT THEY CAN BRING If your friends are any kind of decent people, they’ll probably ask if they can bring anything to the shindig. Take them up on it and make your life easier by divvying up responsibilities for disposable tableware. Even better, ask them to bring a bottle of bubbly or a fun mixer for mimosas, bloody marys, bellinis or palomas. – Holly V. Kapherr orlandoweekly.com

Shop local (music) for the record collector in your life
ow to surprise the sound enthusiast whose record collection is so exhaustive that a Park Ave CDs gift card is usually the default gifting option? Try shopping local for music; it’s a good bet you’ll turn them on to some new and obsession-worthy. One of Orlando’s more notable musical exports is feral garage rock. Some recent best bets are the Golden Pelicans platter Grinding for Gruel (12XU) and 45s from two different generations of rock maniacs, Spoon Dogs’ “The Way You Talk About It” (Pig Baby Records) and the WildTones’ “Pretty Boy” (Rockin’ Records). And how could we forget the Woolly Bushmen’s much-anticipated and expansive In Shambles 12-inch (Pig Baby Records) from earlier this year? It’s been a strong year in Central Florida for hiphop. Sean Shakespeare self-released his Bloodline CD, spotlighting his commanding delivery. Meanwhile, two fresh faces in the area got love from cutting-edge national labels: E-Turn released Young World through Fake Four on CD, and Tampa’s They Hate Change put out cassettes on Deathbomb Arc, making them labelmates with JpegMafia and Clipping. Area Americana true blues Thomas Wynn & the Believers impressed with new album Wade Waist Deep (Mascot Records), and Hannah Harber & the Lionhearts’ debut CD Long Time Coming (self-released) is ample evidence of a strong voice in the scene. Indie rock is covered ably (and how) by the Pauses’ ambitious Unbuilding, available on wax (Arctic Rodeo
Records), while newer dream-pop act Cathedral Bells have an eponymous self-released cassette making the rounds. Local punk pace-setters and heroines Wet Nurse released the lethal Last Drop EP on cassette this year, and Smartpunk Records put out LPs from Orlando punks Teen Agers (When We Were) and Debt Neglector (The Kids Are Pissed) over the last year-and-change. How about underground legends? Orlando has a couple who got the deluxe reissue treatment this year. Relapse Records put out a two-LP version of death metal icons – led by gone-too-soon Orlandoan Chuck Schuldiner – Death’s Live in L.A. album. And NoBusiness Records began issuing CDs of lost and unreleased material from loft-jazz/free jazz Orlando hero Sam Rivers, starting with Emanation. There are also smaller local labels turning out albums worthy of notice. Total Punk offshoot Mind Meld released an instrumental album from NOLA’s Quintron, Erotomania, that has more in common with Martin Denny than his usual madcap-soul. Cassette imprint Illuminated Paths hit gold with new work from internet darling rapper Viper, Bout Tha Money, issued on gold (naturally) cassette. Florida Breaks flame-keeper DJ Kimball Collins is self-releasing CDs that chronicle particularly wild live sets from the 1990s. Even farther out, tape labels Circuit Church and Popnihil turn a tiny but fierce spotlight on local electronic margin-walkers like Modal Plane, Mother Juno, Jas000n and Bacon
Grease. (Full disclosure: Popnihil is owned-operated by Orlando Weekly’s music editor, Matthew Moyer.) And we can’t help but mention enigmatic Central Florida label Cephia’s Treat’s vinyl album of lost recordings from another much-missed Florida musician, E.N., the ghostly, affecting The Heart Is Just an Organ. We end with an album that satisfies across genre and age, the Sh-Booms’ long-awaited debut album and spectacular blues explosion, Blurred Odyssey (Limited Fanfare Records). There’s something for every ear here.

BY CAMERON MEIE R
ometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other,” Katharine Hepburn said. “Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.” And so it goes for newly separated Charlie (Adam Driver) and Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) in writer-director Noah Baumbach’s latest dramedy, Marriage Story. Problem is, Charlie wants Nicole and their son, Henry, to stay in New York City near him while Nicole is eyeing Los Angeles, which is home to her mother, sister and budding movie career. And a bicoastal relationship isn’t what Charlie – or Hepburn, for that matter – had in mind. But Nicole is headstrong, goal-oriented and tired of playing second fiddle to Charlie, who is an accomplished theater director. Though Baumbach takes great pains to show from the outset that the two still admire and love each other, their marriage is no longer healthy for Nicole. “I got smaller,” she confesses. Charlie is struggling with the idea of divorce, though, ironically, he is the one who cheated. And despite their seemingly
amicable separation – which includes counseling and the assumption that divorce will eventually follow – Charlie is devastated when Nicole serves him papers. It was his hope they could avoid lawyers, but it’s not to be. In Margot at the Wedding and The Squid and the Whale, Baumbach explored issues of marriage and divorce. But, until now, he’s never created anything this emotionally powerful, so overflowing with humanity. And he knows it, as he told the audience at the Telluride Film Festival, “It’s the best thing I’ve ever been involved with.” He was speaking about a single scene in which Driver and Johansson leave their tears and souls on the soundstage floor, but he might as well have been discussing the entire movie, which – once it moves past its slow, somewhat ordinary beginning – is simultaneously hilarious, thought-provoking and heartbreaking. And the cherry on top is a lovely score by Randy Newman. This is an actor’s movie, one in which Baumbach trusts his performers with his tender writing and isn’t afraid to let them emote in mesmerizingly long takes. Expect
Oscar nominations for both Johansson and Driver, with the latter my choice to collect the trophy over Joker’s Joaquin Phoenix. Nominations could come for supporting actors too, specifically Laura Dern, Alan Alda and Ray Liotta as a wonderfully eclectic trio of squabbling attorneys. And though Wallace Shawn (Charlie’s theater friend) and Julie Hagerty (Nicole’s mom) don’t add much narratively, they are interesting additions to the best ensemble of the year. Lastly, let’s not forget young Azhy Robertson (Henry), who conjures memories of Justin Henry’s performance in Kramer vs. Kramer. Marriage Story might lack the razzledazzle of the aforementioned Joker, the existential depth of Ad Astra and the visual magic of the upcoming 1917, but it still deserves a spot alongside those films in this year’s top 10. Regrettably, it has received only a limited theatrical release, which means most of you will have to stream it on Netflix starting this week. That’s an awfully small place for such a big film, but at least you’ll get to ugly-cry (and laugh) in the privacy of your own home.

Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in The Aeronauts BY STEVE SCHN EID ER
PHOTO COURTESY COLUMBIA PICTURES
OPENING THIS WEEK:
our Cameron Meier’s review of the film.)
The Aeronauts The issue of representation is a thorny one. It’s important for the arts to make greater acknowledgement of the marginalized, but what happens when that entails rewriting history? Does “inclusivity” then become a process of sweeping past sins under the rug? Witness The Aeronauts, a period piece in which a male meteorologist and a female daredevil undertake a balloon voyage together, then end up having to depend upon each other for their very survival. Scientists at Britain’s Royal Society are upset that the female character, who is essentially fictitious, is a stand-in for a male scientist who saved the real-life flight on which the film is based. They’ve suggested that, rather than engaging in such a swap to appeal to contemporary audiences, it might have been better to make a separate movie about one of the actual female scientists of the time. Tom Harper, the film’s director, had a clapback ready, pointing out that none of those female scientists had been allowed into the Royal Society. Which is a response that itself breaks gender boundaries, mainly by pointing out that women have no monopoly on bein’ bitchy. Anyway, the picture is out this week, so you can see how you yourself feel. You’ll also witness the reunion of lead actors Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, who last appeared together in the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything. Which gets me thinking … man … Stephen Hawking in a hot air balloon. That’d be some representation right there. (PG-13; visit orlandoweekly.com for
Playmobil: The Movie It’s unfortunate that the Playmobil toy collection is so frequently thought of as a second-rate German cousin to Lego, because it’s actually a pretty delightfully designed and constructed series of environments both realistic and fantastic. (Just don’t expect a great time if you have to contact their customer service department about a missing piece … but I digress.) Sadly, if predictably, Playmobil’s first-ever foray onto the big screen is being compared negatively to the Lego franchise of films. I wouldn’t have considered it possible for a flick to inspire even less enthusiasm than Lego Ninjago, but there you go. Biases aside, it’s probably not a great sign that Playmobil: The Movie was supposed to have been released last January and kept getting pushed back throughout the ensuing 11 months. Geez, that’s even longer than I was on the phone with their customer service department. (NR) Refugio de Pecadores Billed as the first movie produced entirely in Puerto Rico, Refugio de Pecadores (“Refuge of Sinners”) reinterprets four biblical stories in a modern context. The promotional synopsis refers to them as “four stories of human failure,” but that sounds too much like the Matt Helm series to me. Producer-director Padre Luis Colón is a man of the cloth in his day gig, which should make for a good deal of accuracy. You know, what with him knowing God personally and all.

rock sounds of Nashville, and working with Sun records impresario Sam Phillips. The album is generally considered Prine’s artistic nadir and stands as a counterpoint to his previous releases. Prine moved back to a more country sound for his final major label release, Storm Windows, in 1980. Low sales and the loss of focus left John Prine seemingly washed up and done as a new decade dawned. But 1984 saw the return of Prine to recording and also wearing the hat of a record label owner. Initially started in 1981 as a way to release new music without the obligations that come with a major label, Prine’s Oh Boy imprint would be the permanent home for Prine from then on, and acted as a conduit to a secondary surge of releases, from 1984’s Aimless Love on through The Missing Years in 1991. He worked the regional circuits, returning to the club dates and folk circles of his early years. Working alongside a new batch of artists like Greg Brown, Steve Earle, James McMurtry and Iris DeMent, he cemented orlandoweekly.com
his place as a master statesman of independent singer-songwriters, working at a level of status and fame that afforded him the autonomy and freedom to explore, collaborate and organically grow as a musician. In 1992, he won a Grammy for The Missing Years. It signaled the return of John Prine to the national stage. In 2005, Prine was the first singer-songwriter to perform at the Library of Congress, leading to an extended interview about his songwriting and how that relates to poetry with then-U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser. These days, Prine continues to write, record and perform after two bouts with cancer and three marriages, finally releasing his most recent album, Tree of Forgiveness, in 2018. It would be difficult to overestimate the influence and reach John Prine has had on folk and country music over the past 50 years.

BY B AO L E - H U U THE CARS TRIBUTE SHOW | PHOTO BY JEN CRAY
This week, local legends honor
a new wave titan and Folk Yeah goes big again.
SINCE YOU’RE GONE – A TRIBUTE TO THE CARS, WILL’S PUB, NOV. 27
The music world reeled back on Sept. 15 when it lost new wave god Ric Ocasek. What this recent heartfelt tribute event proved is that love for the iconic voice and face of the Cars is deep and wide here in Orlando. Even though it was Thanksgiving’s eve, the house was packed. Onstage, more than a dozen noted Orlando musicians – enough to form four different bands – organized behind the Ludes frontman Jeff Nolan to salute the late great. In front of projected archival video footage of the Cars, an impressive galaxy of local stars brought their songs to life. Right before the first live set, the night was launched with a great personal video of Cars guitarist Elliot Easton introducing the Orlando event. Then Kaleigh Baker opened things with a solo performance that was crowned by an absolutely smoldering rendition of “Drive.” The night wouldn’t, couldn’t, be in official effect though until someone dropped some sweet, sweet synth. And that began next with the first full band, which was essentially Bithlo Rising with Gargamel’s Servo Beonic Man as guest keyboardist. Besides those immaculate synthesizers, the other absolutely defining aspect of the Cars sound is, of course, the singing of Ric Ocasek. On that count, Steve Garron – probably the most vocally elastic of the bunch – best conjured the rubber and sheen of Ocasek’s voice.
Even though it was Thanksgiving’s eve, the house was packed, and more than a dozen noted Orlando musicians organized behind Jeff Nolan to salute the late great Ric Ocasek
The common denominator across all the bands that performed, however, was love for the Cars. Testament to the depth of their catalog was that it was an entire night of hits across four different sets without a single repeat song.
FOLK YEAH VOL. 4, WILL’S PUB/LIL INDIES, NOV. 29
In its fourth year, Mike Dunn’s burgeoning annual songwriter festival Folk Yeah has officially gone from good to great. Opening night was a vibrant mix of local luminaries, choice imports and fresh new faces. Among the out-of-state acts, there were even some national-level names, a growing feature of Folk Yeah. The most high-profile was Zach Williams, lead singer of the Lone Bellow, who delivered a quietly stirring performance. Others included Nashville rock & roll believer Erica Blinn and Dallas-bred Americana artist Joel Adam Russell. As nice and necessary as the national infusion was for a blooming festival, though, our native acts actually provided
most of the night’s splendor, with some Floridian discoveries shining particularly bright. One such case was young Ocala band the States. With a sound as indie as it is Americana, they build slow-burning anthems of towering tenderness with drama and scale that can crest up to two drummers. However, even among big area names that came deluxe like Terri Binion, Cat Ridgeway & the Tourists and the 502s, one of the evening’s most arresting acts was one of the quietest. Under the moniker the Careful Ones, Lakeland songwriter Joshua Robinson waxed tender with a solo set of soul-stroked folk-pop. It was the most delicate performance I saw, but it was done in the night’s purest, most striking voice, a model of singing that’s utterly angelic. Here, the music is always first, but the atmosphere at this year’s Folk Yeah deserves its own ovation. Mike Dunn has truly been ripening as a visual artist in recent years. His portrait photography has gotten lots of due attention for its signature modern-rustic elegance, and that’s spilled over into some video direction (to wit, Terri Binion’s “Tiny Little Landmines”). Well, that sense of mise en scène and set design has bled further onto the stages and into the aesthetic of Folk Yeah, really giving the festival yet another dimension of the Dunn touch. Let’s get back to the music. With its quality and size, what Folk Yeah underscores is that the Central Florida roots and Americana scene is currently on its way to its most notable renaissance since the mid-2000s heyday. In addition to showcasing it like no other, Mike Dunn and Folk Yeah are furthering the cause. firstname.lastname@example.org orlandoweekly.com

Christmas in the Park HOLIDAY
No local holiday tradition is as downright – well, traditional – as Winter Park’s annual Christmas in the Park celebration. The Morse Museum sets up beautiful, centuryold Tiffany stained glass windows in Central Park to set the mood, while the Bach Festival Choir and Brass Ensemble perform holiday favorites on the Central Park stage. It’s a good idea to head down early to find parking and throw down a blanket to stake your claim on the best spot. And if your holiday traditions involve a bit of liquid cheer, take heart: The park is allowing you to bring your own adult beverages for this special occasion. – Thaddeus McCollum 6:15 p.m. | Central Park, Garfield and Park avenues, Winter Park | cityofwinterpark.org | free

Sweet & Savory: Candy Land EVENTS
Holiday dinners are fine. We like turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes as much as anyone. But let’s be real: The true stars of the holidays are the desserts. Beginning with the candy landslide of Halloween, the last two months of the year are full of pies, cakes, candy canes, Ferrero Rocher hazelnut balls, gingerbread, and, yes, even the unfairly maligned fruitcake. Sweet & Savory is a chance to try lots of desserts from multiple restaurants in one night, accompanied by festive drinks and just the right amount of savory bites to balance out your sweet tooth. This year’s party takes place at the Wellborn Boutique Hotel, a cozy inn tucked away near Lake Lucerne, and features bites from the likes of La Femme du Fromage, Sweet by Holly, La Boucherie USA and more. – TM 7 p.m. | The Wellborn Boutique Hotel, 211 N.

The Pauses Present: 1999 MUSIC
This is not at all a Prince reference. Orlando indie rock group the Pauses will party like it’s actually 1999 when they return with their long-running, consecutive series that highlights a single year in the 1990s. No ’90s theme night in the city gets as immersive or features as much notable Orlando talent as this annual Pauses blowout. For an entire weekend, Will’s Pub will be total 1999 redux. The year’s songs are performed live by some of Orlando’s best bands (often in costume) and carefully curated by DJs. Its sights will come in excellently edited videos and incredibly specific pop-cultural relics strewn about the venue. What makes the entire event worth attending is that each night features an entirely different program. Friday, the Pauses will share the bill with Fake Four recording artist E-Turn, Swamp Sista grande dame Beth McKee and OW’s own Jason Ferguson on the decks. Saturday, they’ll be joined by Timothy Eerie, Virginity and DJ Smilin’ Dan. Check out the Pauses’ hilarious Ask Jeeves web page for full details (thepauses.com/1999). Go party like it’s your last hurrah before Y2K wipes out civilization. – Bao Le-Huu

Tree Lighting Celebration HOLIDAY
Seventy-two feet tall is pretty big, but the beneficent planners of our city’s official tree lighting celebration have even bigger things than that very tall Christmas tree in mind for the kickoff of this year’s holiday season – like a whole park full of decorations to explore with the kiddos (or doggos), live entertainment, and the Daily City food truck bazaar on hand to sate any growling stomachs. Along with those new park-wide decorations, the “Eola Wonderland Christmas Tree show” (a synchronized light-and-music show) will happen throughout the month, every evening once an hour between 5:45 and 9:45 p.m. (Will they make the tree blue and white a few times between Dec. 22-30? Eh, probably.) If 72 feet of sparkly lights and a squad of almost-as-tall nutcracker soldiers don’t stir your soul into just a bit of seasonal cheer, it’s time to look into a Whoville heart-size adjustment. – Jessica Bryce Young 5-9 p.m. | Lake Eola Park, Rosalind Avenue between Washington and Robinson streets | orlando.gov | free

Mavis Staples MUSIC
PHOTO BY MYRIAM SANTOS
Though Orlando Weekly generally accepts the maxim that the devil has all the best tunes, damn if we weren’t just listening to the Staples Singers’ The 25th Day of December album and thinking how fortunate the world is that Mavis Staples is still alive and performing. This weekend, the gospel and soul titan that is Ms. Staples is swinging through Orlando – though she’s making us work for it with that Mount Dora venue – with the Charlie Musselwhite Band in tow. It’s impossible to understate Staples’ importance to American music and culture; her solo work and the Staples Singers’ albums are untouchable, winning most every musical honor imaginable. Beyond that, she is a Civil Rights legend, and she’s performed for both John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama. If you’re in the mood for pregaming with some Staples recordings, there’s plenty of new work and reissues to go around. Staples’ newest album, We Get By, is a powerhouse affair produced by Ben Harper, and if you want to try something a little more eclectic, try her 2016 duets album Livin’ on a High Note, full of unexpected collaborations with the likes of Nick Cave and Tune-Yards. If you’re in the mood for a historical deep dive, on Dec. 6 the Craft label will unleash a sevenLP compendium of the Staples Singers’ output on Stax. It’s gonna get emotional. – Matthew Moyer with the Charlie Musselwhite Band | 7 p.m. | Mount Dora Plaza Live, 2728 W. Old Highway 44, Mount Dora | 352-234-3755 | mountdoraplazalive.com | $50
Sunday, Dec. 8
Death Angel MUSIC
West Coast thrash metal legends Death Angel were peers of the fearsome likes of Slayer, Megadeth and Metallica and seemed poised to make the same mainstream impact, but sadly never hit big in the way that those three bands did. Their high-watermark album, Act III, a diverse, assured body of songs released by Geffen in 1990, should have been their “Black Album,” but alas, fate intervened in the form of a tour bus accident that caused injuries and, indirectly, the dissolution of the band in 1991. Death Angel reunited in 2001, with a clear sense of unfinished business, touring and releasing six albums between then and now. It’s their newest album, this year’s Humanicide on Nuclear Blast, that they’ll be highlighting during the weekend stop at the Shovelhead. Thrash ’til death, as the (not) kids say. – MM with Exmortus, Hell Fire, Meka Nism, Thicket | 6:30 p.m. | Shovelhead Lounge, 900 S. U.S. Highway 17-92, Longwood | 407-332-9199 | facebook.com/shovelheadlounge | $18-$50

Mega Ran MUSIC
Oh, Mega! Mega Ran’s gig at Will’s Pub comes in support of his 11th album, Ages, which features SkyBlew and Mickey Factz, the latter of whom will be joining him and Alfred Banks this weekend. It also includes a cameo by Austin Creed, aka Xavier Woods of WWE’s New Day tag team, in the latest example of Mega Ran’s long, fruitful dealings with the world of pro wrestling. Born Raheem Jarbo, this indie-rap icon has deep roots in the Blerdscape and a lengthy discography of largely self-released material, including eight EPs, 10 mixtapes and dozens of guest spots that span the spectrum of modern hip-hop. As the first rapper ever licensed by a major video game company (Capcom, of course), he has played a decisive role in bringing these two subcultures together. He’s also active on Twitch, and hosts his own “Mat Mania” podcast. Get in the ring. – Shelton Hull with Mickey Factz and Alfred Banks | 8 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $15

Krampusnacht H O L I DAY
While there are plenty of Christmas traditions that didn’t quite make the cut for the modern American version of the ancient holiday – the blackface-wearing Zwarte Piet thankfully never spread much farther than the Netherlands – the terrifying Krampus has received a notable revival. The monster from Central European folklore is the bad cop to St. Nick’s good, tasked with punishing naughty children through the threats of kidnapping, violence or shitty gifts – this is where the tradition of coal in your stocking comes from. And if there’s ever a place to celebrate a weird German tradition locally, Sanford’s Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Café is that place. In addition to authentic German food, treats and drinks, participants can join a Krampuslauf, which is when people dressed in their scariest Krampus costumes run through the streets, terrifying and amusing onlookers. If you’re not sufficiently horrified by the end of the lauf, a live polka band does their best to correct that. – Thaddeus McCollum 6-9 p.m. | Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Café, 205 E.

B Y DA N S AVAG E
My ex-girlfriend, who I dated for nine months, called me two months after we broke up and accused me of giving her HPV. She was going on, telling me how I needed to tell any future person I had sex with that I have HPV. I’m a 38-year-old man, and I’ve never had any signs or symptoms of any sexually transmitted infections. I know HPV is very common, often clears up on its own, and cannot be tested for in men. What are your thoughts? Do I need to tell sexual partners that I have HPV? Help Person Vacillating Most people are infected with HPV – the human papillomavirus – at some point in their lifetime, most never develop symptoms, and in most cases the infection goes away on its own. There’s an effective and safe vaccine that protects people from HPV strains that can cause cervical, anal, dick or throat cancer – and everyone, regardless of age, should get vaccinated. And since people can develop symptoms years after their initial exposure, there’s no way for your ex-girlfriend to know that you infected her. Or that she didn’t infect you. Every sexually active adult should assume they’ve been exposed to HPV, that they have it or have had it, and conduct themselves accordingly. I’m a gay man, and there’s a guy I see on the bus who I find attractive in the extreme. I can’t keep myself from looking at him. Now here comes the but: He smokes. I’ve been toying with an idea to convince him to quit. I want to slip a note into his pocket or backpack with the following proposal: “Let’s make a deal. You give up cigarettes, and in return I’ll give you a blowjob once a week for a year. I’m concerned about your health. Please consider.” Other people who ride the bus also smoke, but I’m not inclined to make them the same offer. But it makes me sad knowing this guy smokes, and I want to get him to stop. If this idea is crazy, please say so – it will help me move on. Before Undertaking Sincere Tobacco Eradication Deal While your motives are no doubt pure – there’s nothing in this plan for you, BUSTED, just the quiet satisfaction of putting a beautiful stranger on the path to better health – you don’t know if this guy is attracted to you. But he’s likely to react badly to your proposal even if he is. Because while you and I both know you’re being entirely selfless – you’re the Florence Nightingale of anonymous/no-recip blowjobs – this extremely attractive stranger is going to assume you’re a delusional creep with boundary issues, because slipping a note like that into someone’s backpack or pocket (which would 46
require you to technically and legally assault him) is precisely the kind of thing delusional creeps with boundary issues do. And because delusional creeps with boundary issues do this sort of thing, BUSTED, good and decent guys like you can’t do it without being misunderstood. So absent some sign of interest from this attractive stranger – like him staring back at you – you’re going to do what any normal, non-delusional, noncreepy gay guy would do after seeing an attractive stranger on the bus: leave him alone while surreptitiously checking to see if he’s on any of the gay hookup apps. My wife is über-vanilla. She is willing to spank me and peg me, but she won’t “take charge” of the situation. She’s doing it to please me and expects me to signal approval throughout the process. As soon as a spanking gets to the point that I’m flinching and wanting it to stop, she stops. We’ve never gotten more than a few strokes into the pegging for the same reason. I don’t really crave pain per se, but I want and need her to be in charge. Seeking Pointers About Needed Kinks One of the top reasons people choose safe words, SPANK, is so that they can scream, “Oh, God! Stop, please! I beg you! It’s too much!” and the person who’s spanking or pegging them knows that since they didn’t hear “collusion” or “giuliani” or “zelensky,” the spanking or pegging can continue. Not using the safe word is how a sub signals their approval throughout the spanking/ pegging/whatevering process – or, at the very least, how a sub signals their willingness to endure the spanking/pegging/whatevering to please the top. My long-term partner and I are in a soft Dom/sub relationship. Neither of us has been sexually or physically abused. I suffer mainly from depression and a little anxiety. Lately when the sex is great, I end up having a panic attack. If I have an intense orgasm and then he goes to town with penetration, there will be a point where I physically shove him off and then my body shakes and my breathing starts getting really fast and I start crying, and basically I’m having a panic attack. I feel terrible for my partner, because it’s not really his fault. But somehow the physical overstimulation gives my body the “OK” to have a panic attack. It’s happened a few times, and my partner is now hesitant to have sex. I want to be able to stop these panic attacks mainly for him. However, when I do have the panic attacks, I want to just cry and let everything out. But of course my amazing partner just wants to comfort me and get it to stop. Please help. Problems Around Nookie-Induced Crisis
ORLANDO WEEKLY ● DEC. 4-10, 2019 ● orlandoweekly.com
Panic attacks during sex are something you might want to explore with a therapist or counselor, PANIC. If you’re already seeing someone about your depression and anxiety, please bring these attacks up with your provider. If you aren’t seeing someone, please start seeing someone. As for your partner’s hesitation to have intercourse, well, that’s understandable. But there’s an easy enough work-around: If an intense orgasm followed by go-to-town-style penetration triggers your panic attacks, then either don’t do penetrative sex after you’ve had an intense orgasm or wait until after your partner goes to town to have your orgasm. I’ve been in situations where I’m with my better half, rocking her world, giving her an orgasm, coming inside her, and she loves it. The next week, same scenario, she’s moaning and groaning, I explode, and she says to me, “Did you come?” And I’m there thinking, “I thought I was pleasuring her like last time, and she suddenly can’t tell when I exploded inside her?!” What The Actual Fuck Sometimes the person getting fucked (PGF) is paying close attention to the person doing the fucking (PDTF). The PGF is really taking the PDTF in, the PGF can see how close the PDTF is getting, the PGF knows just when the PDTF has arrived. But sometimes the PGF’s eyes roll back in their head and they float the fuck away, WTAF, because the fucking feels that damn good. The PGF moans, the PGF groans, but the PGF is so lost in the physical and emotional sensations – they’re getting so deeply into the dicking – that it’s not until after the PDTF stops fucking them that the PGF even realizes the PDTF is done fucking them. So it’s not a bad sign that your better half sometimes has to ask if you came, WTAF, it’s a good sign.
