Readers react to stories from the Dec. 27 issue. On Dec. 27, we reported that Fashion Square Mall had taken another major hit in its struggle to rebound when the StrikeOuts Bowling and Entertainment Center closed abruptly earlier this month. The family entertainment center was billed as part of the recovery when it opened in 2014; Up Development, former owner of the mall, opened StrikeOuts just as other tenants at the mall began to leave. @Carina Brooks-King The area has gone hipster. Hipsters don’t go to the mall. @Dan Meneely I’ve been going to this mall for years, since the 1980s. I have often taken my son to this bowling alley. I even had a friend and work colleague who leased a retail space there for a while. Everything I have seen over the years tells me that it’s either become a dead space due to the current online buying trends or someone in charge is killing it off.

@Nico Lucido Turn it into a giant Olive Garden featuring the world’s largest salad and breadsticks. On Dec. 27, we published a story showcasing five times U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio was useless to the general public in 2017, from his inconsistency when it comes to meeting with constituents to his ineptitude in terms of standing up for immigrants in the age of Trump. @Celena Thomas Why do Cubans vote for him over and over? I understand the Cuban connection, but he’s doing nothing for any of us. @Douglas Cole Rubio is a corporate tool, through and through. @Jimmy Calvert This is the problem with all of them. How can any of you be proud of the U.S. when we have people like this representing us? I’m not proud to be a part of this greedy, lawless country. You all make me sick.

BY XANDER PETERS

A REPUBLIC, IF YOU CAN KEEP IT A New Year’s resolution There’s a famous anecdote – possibly

apocryphal – about the time Benjamin Franklin, when leaving the Constitutional Convention of 1787, was approached by a woman asking what kind of government the clandestine gathering had produced. “A republic,” Franklin is said to have replied, “if you can keep it.” I’ve been thinking about that line – and the idea behind it – a lot lately, as we stand at the precipice of another new year and look in the rearview at an unsettling 2017. There’s an undeniable fragility to this moment in time, a sense that the country is ripping itself asunder, perhaps irreparably. Sure, there’s Donald Trump, a corporeal incarnation of malice, narcissism, self-delusion, mendacity and graft, helped into office by a meddling foreign government and the racism of many of his supporters. But it’s more than that. It’s also the widening gap between rich and poor – U.S. income inequality ranks among the highest in developed countries – and a social safety net that is threatened while the wealthiest are showered with tax benefits, something of a parallel to the waning days of the ancien régime. There are the increasingly authoritarian proclivities of the ruling party and its leader (and its subservient propaganda outlets). There are naked legislative and congressional gerrymanders that render urban minority votes less meaningful than rural white ones. (And, for that matter, there’s the U.S. Senate, where twothirds of the nation’s citizens will be represented by less than one-third of senators by 2040, as more people migrate to the biggest states.) There’s the self-segregation of social media, amplifying enmity and reinforcing beliefs we already hold, whatever the reality. There’s the rise of the alt-right and white supremacist groups. And there’s the zero-sum mentality permeating our politics. All of that, of course, ignores two existential threats to both the country and the planet: the administration’s refusal to act on climate change at the behest of its fossil-fuels backers, and its saberrattling with a nuclear-armed North Korea. None of this bodes well, considering that this anxious undercurrent exists amid a growing economy that has added jobs every month for almost eight years. (Side note: Whenever Trump brags about the economy, remember it’s a classic case of being born on third base and thinking you hit a triple.) Imagine

what happens when that inevitably goes south. The rearview of 2017 is indeed unsettling. But America has survived over the last 23 decades – two world wars, one civil war, the Great Depression, the Cold War. It’s survived the corruption of Richard Nixon and the incompetence of George W. Bush, the fecklessness of James Buchanan and the genocide of Andrew Jackson. And the republic will also survive the presidency of Donald J. Trump. But only if we can keep it. “The brevity of [Franklin’s] response,” the late historian Richard Beeman once wrote, “should not cause us to undervalue its essential meaning: Democratic republics are not merely founded upon the consent of the people, they are also absolutely dependent upon the active and informed involvement of the people for their continued good health.” For all the perfidy and avarice and chaos of the present regime, 2017 also gave hope for the New Year. We saw it in the Women’s March, in the protests of the Muslim ban at airports across the country, in the mass demonstrations against racism and white supremacy, in the swell of activism that prevented the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, in the rise of the resistance, in the increasing outspokenness of the religious left, in the elections in Virginia and Alabama and elsewhere – all examples of that “active and informed involvement of the people” pushing back at encroachments on democratic norms and basic human decency. What Franklin was saying 230 years ago was that the republic can only be maintained with perpetual vigilance, lest it devolve into despotism. The first year of the Trump administration has only underlined his point. The second year of the Trump administration will be no different. It’s up to us to resist the White House’s racial revanchism. It’s up to us to counter fiction with fact, to demand reality-based policymaking. And, most important, it’s up to us to defeat those politicians who, because they want to ban abortion or shower their benefactors with tax goodies or start another war in the Middle East, tolerate or facilitate the president’s abuses of power. This is a time for resolutions, so this is mine for 2018: Throw the bums out, and keep the damn republic. @jeffreybillman on Twitter feedback@orlandoweekly.com

Florida health officials will offer an HIV prevention drug in 2018, Disney World adjusts its policies in the wake of the Las Vegas attack and other things you may have missed in the last week Florida health officials will offer HIV prevention drug for free by end of 2018: As part of its efforts to reduce new HIV infections, the Florida Department of Health began rolling out a statewide PrEP initiative in October. All 67 county health departments should have PrEP available by the end of 2018, according to officials. Patients who need the prevention drug will be evaluated clinically and provided access to medication based on their eligibility requirements. The department’s PrEP initiative for patients includes testing for HIV, hepatitis C and liver function; education on the drug; prescription of PrEP medications and a three-month followup.

Disney World adjusts housekeeping policy in wake of Las Vegas attack: Over the years, Disney has been known to go to extremes in terms of guest safety. Now, in their latest move, precipitated by the Las Vegas shootings at Mandalay Bay, the resort has begun removing all “Do Not Disturb” signs and replacing them with “Room Occupied” signs. Also noted on the signs is language that states “staff reserve the right to enter your room for any purposes including, but not limited to, performing maintenance and repairs or checking on the safety and security of guests and property.”

Trump was supposed to be ‘back at work’ last week, but he was golfing in Florida: On Christmas Day, President Trump tweeted to his more than 45 million followers wishing them a “great Christmas” and saying “tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again.” Tomorrow came and went, however, as did the following day, with Trump sharpening his golf game at Mar-a-Lago. The outings marked his 85th and 86th days at a Trump golf property, meaning he’s spent roughly a quarter of his time as president on the unforgiving greens instead of in the Oval Office.

Florida lawmaker says Department of Justice is ‘kind of off the rails’: It was supposed to be just another interview, but comments by Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Naples, went above and beyond the typical and entered the realm of sound-bite hell last week. When questioned by MSNBC host Hallie Jackson on President Trump’s most recent tweet about the FBI, Rooney replied, “I’m very concerned that [the Department of Justice] and the FBI, what do you want to call it, Deep State or what, are kind of off the rails.” Jackson seemed stunned, but Rooney doubled (and quadrupled) down on his opinion that Congress needs to “purge the DOJ.”

No room for your kiN Central Florida lawmakers are frustrated over the lack of housing as Puerto Rican evacuees arrive in Orlando daily By Mon ivette Cor d ei r o

M

ore than 100 days after Hurricane Maria’s apocalyptic winds tore through Puerto Rico leaving floods, collapsed houses and bodies in its wake, the island remains shrouded in darkness. Half of the 3.4 million U.S. citizens in the American territory are living without power, three months after Maria made landfall on Sept. 20 and destroyed the island’s electrical grid – and many will likely remain that way until May, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In the most dire cases, no electricity means no access to clean drinking water, no schools, no jobs, no medicine – no hope that things will return to normal anytime soon. As Puerto Rico’s situation continues to deteriorate, hundreds of thousands of people have escaped to Florida for a respite from the despair. Instead, they’ve fled headfirst into our state’s dreadful affordable housing crisis. The Orlando metro area ranks third in the nation for its lack of affordable rentals, with 18 affordable units available for every 100 extremely low-income families, according to a National Low Income Housing Coalition study. Local officials and nonprofits have been scrambling to accommodate evacuees who haven’t been able

formally request an extension of FEMA’s hotel voucher program so hurricane victims could continue receiving help. The Transitional Shelter Assistance (TSA) program pays for a short-term stay at participating motels and hotels while evacuees look for permanent housing. “We know you are diligently working on recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, but we must also coordinate with your government for relief services needed in Florida,” the letter said. “It has become apparent that in order for us to get financial assistance from the federal government, specific requests for that assistance must be made by your government on behalf of those residents of Puerto Rico now residing in Florida.” The program is set to expire for Puerto Rican evacuees on Jan. 13. State lawmakers asked Rosselló to request six more months from FEMA. Instead, he only asked for 60 days. “The government of Puerto Rico, while enduring a lengthy and arduous recovery effort at home, is committed to providing and facilitating federal assistance to its temporarily displaced residents,” said José Marrero, the governor’s representative to FEMA. FEMA spokesperson Daniel Llargués said last week the governor’s request for a TSA extension was “still under review” by the federal agency. State legislators also wanted Rosselló to ask FEMA to expand the use of the Direct Lease program to Florida. The move would allow Puerto Rican evacuees to receive federal financial aid for short-term vacant rentals for at least 18 months until they return to the island or find permanent housing here. The program has been active in the commonwealth since October. That request was apparently ignored because two days later, on Dec. 20, a bipartisan group of Congress members from Florida sent a letter to FEMA administrator William Long asking for the agency to directly authorize the program for the host state instead of waiting for Puerto Rico. “Florida’s local and state governments lack a sufficient supply of housing to accommodate the recent, and anticipated, arrival of evacuees,” the letter said. “Puerto Rican evacuees in Florida need housing. Florida needs assistance to support the housing needs of the Puerto Rican evacuees.” Llargués says Florida officials don’t have the power to request the Direct Lease program for evacuees in their state – the Puerto Rican governor must choose to expand it. Orlando Weekly reached out to the Puerto Rican government to ask why it wouldn’t expand the

to stay with family members, getting them into hotels and temporary lodgings as they wait for relief. As of last Thursday, 283,000 people had arrived in Florida from Puerto Rico through airports in Orlando, Tampa and Miami, according to the state division of emergency management. Now dealing with the third month of Maria migration, Central Florida lawmakers remain frustrated over housing options for evacuees. The situation came to a head last month after exasperated legislators sent letters to FEMA and the Puerto Rican government “uproot my life and my kids, come here, find urging them to expand housing aid a place to live, get jobs for myself and my for evacuees or risk them becoming husband, place my kids in school — homeless. what part of that sounds temporary?” “If just one family becomes homeless due to lack of action by the federal government or those officials making decisions in Puerto Rico, it is one family Direct Lease program for evacuees in Florida but did not too many,” said state Sen. Victor Torres, D-Orlando, in receive a response by press time. Unlike Democratic lawmakers, Gov. Rick Scott a statement. In a Dec. 18 letter, Torres and other Democratic law- and other top state leaders have not publicly presmakers pushed for Puerto Rico Gov.

Sunshine State. Scott’s office says the governor is focused on helping the island and Puerto Rican evacuees. “Since Oct. 3, more than 34,000 individuals have visited airport multi-agency resource centers, which were opened at the direction of Gov. Scott,” said spokesperson Kerri Wyland in a statement. “We are hopeful FEMA and Governor Rosselló will find a solution to help all those displaced by Hurricane Maria.” At a task force meeting on the issue last week, U.S. Rep. Darren Soto, D-Orlando, said Congress members were requesting a waiver from FEMA so funding would come directly to the state. “Truth be told, there’s a little tension with Puerto Rico because they don’t want to encourage people to leave, but they know that we need it,” Soto said.

T

hat tension has even extended past housing toward the education system. In the three months after Maria, 10,324 Puerto Rican students enrolled in Florida public school districts, according to a December survey from the Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College. Almost half of those students ended up in two school districts – Orange County (2,590) and Osceola County (1,960). Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart announced in November that she was working with her counterpart on the island on a plan that would allow high-school students who evacuated to graduate on time with Puerto Rican diplomas instead of trying to meet state graduation requirements for a Florida diploma. But in a Dec. 22 letter from the Orange and Osceola school superintendents, the two districts said they hadn’t seen a response from the Puerto Rican education department regarding diplomas. “Time is running out to find a solution for these students,” the letter says. State Rep. Amy Mercado, who signed onto the Dec. 18 letter, says federal and state officials are “dragging their feet” in addressing the pending housing crisis that evacuees will face. “It’s incredibly frustrating,” the Orlando Democrat says. “What’s going to happen is when all of these things expire, it becomes Orange County’s problem, Osceola County’s problem – period. And the locals don’t have the capacity to handle it.” Mercado says part of the problem is

the perception of how long Puerto Rican evacuees will stay. Some state leaders believe the situation is temporary and that evacuees will return to the island once conditions improve. “If I’m going to uproot my life, my kids from an area in Puerto Rico that still doesn’t have power to come here and find a place to live, get jobs for myself and my husband, place my kids in school – what part of that sounds temporary?” Mercado asks. “This problem doesn’t have a 60-day window or 180-day window. [The evacuees] might be here maybe two years, five years or permanently. It’s not going to be temporary.” On the other side of the aisle, state Rep. Rene Plasencia, R-Orlando, also thinks most evacuees will end up calling Florida home. “I, too, believe that the vast majority of people who have come here don’t want to go back to Puerto Rico,” Plasencia said at a task force meeting last week. “I think the majority will stay here and find a way to get to a certain area probably within close proximity to Central Florida where they can have jobs, where they can get affordable housing.” Central Florida lawmakers from both parties have proposed a number of solutions to fix the area’s affordable housing shortage. State Rep. Bob Cortes, R-Altamonte Springs, has sponsored a bill to streamline the permitting process for affordable housing developers by banning municipal impact fees. Mercado, Torres and other Democratic lawmakers have rallied against stopping the Florida Legislature from raiding millions every year from the Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Funds collected from real estate transactions for other projects. Already Gov. Scott has suggested diverting $92 million in his proposed 2018-2019 budget to plug other financial holes. Orlando’s housing crisis, though, can’t be fixed overnight with either of these proposals. Plasencia encouraged local officials at last week’s task force meeting to steer evacuees to other places, like Marion County, where some jobs and housing may be more readily available. “Our ability to provide affordable housing is something that is going to happen over the next two to five years, not over the next two to five months,” he said. “We need to look at options to help people now, and those options may not be in this immediate area.” mcordeiro@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

Body text(s) Three books that investigate the terrors and pleasures of the corporeal By Ryan Rivas

(Coffee House, April 2017). The book recounts Luiselli’s experience as a volunteer interpreter for migrant children arriving in the U.S. Her job is to ask these freshly traumatized children 40 questions designed by lawyers to determine whether or not they might qualify for asylum. Though 100 percent real, the formality of this process reads like absurdist fiction. Imagine the difficulty of interpreting a 5-year-old’s response to “Do you feel safe?”

H

ow much of 2017 did you spend scrolling through newsfeeds until your eyes felt like they would shrivel and fall from your skull? Being prone to despair, I found solace in literature. When overwhelmed by news, think pieces and dezinformatsiya, literature speaks to us through a back channel. Its slowness and deeply considered language helps form our finer feelings and better process the world. In Martin MacInnes’ Infinite Ground (Melville House, October 2017), an unnamed inspector in an unnamed Latin American city suspects the missing person he’s after (Carlos) has literally disintegrated. Following a trail of fabulist microbiological clues from the office of the unnamed corporation where Carlos worked to the outlying rainforest, the inspector finds no less artifice in his ecotourism than he did in the city (where the corporation hires actor-workers to improve productivity). He is ostensibly looking for Carlos when the Lynchian storyline unravels and the inspector becomes absorbed, quite viscerally, in the nature around him. But is it real? One chapter late in the book simply lists “suspicions, rumors, links” about “what happened to Carlos.” One rather convincing theory suggests the whole investigation is a delusion. Against this backdrop of bleak assumptions – human hubris, colonialism – MacInnes creates rich patterns, themes and repetitions that make the book feel like its own self-contained ecosystem. I was both delighted and alarmed to be immersed in the story’s narrative confusion, the logic of which felt all too real. Another fiction through which we might digest reality, specifically our national reckoning with toxic masculinity, is Carmen Maria Machado’s Her Body and Other Parties (Graywolf, October 2017), a blend of horror, erotica and fairytale that makes for an original, stylistically cohesive, steadfastly queer book of stories. Machado artfully employs the surreal to reflect the psyches of victimized women, as in “Difficult at Parties,” in which the narrator recovering from a sexual assault hears the thoughts of porn actors; or the ways women are minimized, as in “Real Women Have Bodies,” in which the world’s women are disappearing into thin air; or the “womanly” stereotypes imposed on women, as in “The Husband Stitch,” a spirited twist on an old cautionary tale that … actually, just Google it. In these stories, the body is the central site of not only trauma, but pleasure. In “Inventory,” for example, a deadly pandemic takes a backseat to the narrator’s sexual conquests and desire to connect with humanity, even as it falls apart. Deadpan delivery of lines like “The moral of that story, I think, is that being poor will kill you” create surprising moments of dark-comic relief, which is helpful when gazing into the cracked mirror of society. And overall, these characters are not defined by trauma, but perseverance. And sometimes the shroud of metaphor must be shed altogether. Sometimes a book must frankly remind us that the border-jumping Mexicans we’re told to fear are often Honduran, Guatemalan and Salvadoran children putting life and literal limb on the line to escape countries U.S. policy helped destabilize. That’s the headline through which we enter the humanity of Valeria Luiselli’s Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in 40 Questions

and the pressure of knowing the wrong answer could cost them so much. Luiselli thinks of her own children and their privilege, expresses fears and frustrations and even guilt over the way the country of her birth (Mexico) treats migrants just like the U.S. does, as unwanted criminals. She finds some redemption in her college students, who she engages to help local migrants succeed in a new and frightening country, and in Manu, a Honduran migrant whose story is still uncertain but closer to a happy ending than most. The toll 2017 took on my mind is nothing compared to the renewed attack on the bodies of my fellow (and aspiring) citizens. These three books, with their focus on bodies in various states of danger, remind us contemporary literature can be an escape without being escapist, that we read to think deeply about the world around us, and hopefully, after putting the book down, we’re moved to act. arts@orlandoweekly.com Valeria luiselli

BY SETH KUBERSKY IngrId Hansen In Interstellar elder | Photo by Laura Dittmann

Did the ambivalent tone of last

week’s eulogy for the “best worst year ever” leave a bitter taste in your mouth? Let’s rinse 2017 away with an optimistic look at upcoming arts and attractions I’m anticipating in the year ahead. First and foremost on my 2018 cultural calendar is the Orlando Fringe Festival, which returns to Loch Haven on May 15-28. This year’s Fest will feature fresh faces both on stage (since several perennial performers weren’t selected in the lottery) and behind the scenes, under new executive director Alauna Friskics. To tide Fringe fans over until spring, this week’s Winter Mini-Fest (Jan. 3-7) brings 25 artists from around the world to town for five days of award-winning encores (including top critics’ picks There Ain’t No More: Death of a Folksinger, Black in the Box and La Reina Yolanda) along with previously unseen productions like The Legend of White Creek by the Coldharts, Kitt Pedersen’s Interstellar Elder and Mike Delamont’s Husky Panda. Then on March 5, Tymisha Harris returns to her acclaimed off-Broadway role as Josephine Baker for the Fab Fringe fundraiser at Plaza Live; tickets start at $35 and go on sale to the public on Jan. 15 at orlandofringe.org. Beyond the Fringe, I’m looking forward to making amends for missing out on many productions at the mainstream venues in 2017, thanks to a strong slate of shows on the major theaters’ 2018 schedules. Orlando Shakes kicks off the year this Friday with Native Gardens, a topical culture-clash comedy by Karen Zacarías, and continues in February with a stage adaptation of the audience-pleasing film Shakespeare in Love. Shakes’ spring allfemale Timon of Athens was sadly canceled due to budget cuts, but I’m eager to see if their fall production of In the Heights can match GOAT’s superb 2015 version.

Plenty of exciting plays are coming to Orlando in 2018, but it looks like a relatively quiet year ahead in the theme parks On the Broadway in Orlando front, tours of Waitress and Something Rotten are arriving at the Dr. Phillips Center in March and April with positive buzz, and Mad Cow is producing the local premiere of the Tony-winning Fun Home in June. But the show I’m most eager to see is Beth Marshall’s production of The Lieutenant of Inishmore at the Garden Theatre in February. I fell in love with the original New York version of Martin McDonagh’s pitch-black comedy, and can’t wait to see how Winter Garden audiences react to the graphic gore and gallows humor. At the same time, I’m going to try to keep exploring the outskirts of Orlando theater, keeping an eye out for performers who cross the boundaries between art forms. For example, late last year I attended the Enzian premiere of Merry Christmas Headphone Jack, a microbudget feature shot in Winter Park by UCF film school alums Chris Nolte and Brandon Wane. Local writer-actor Corey Volence stars as a haggard historical guide saddled with showing bickering tourists (Chaz Krivan and Ashleigh Ann Gardner) around Park Avenue. Though flawed, the movie captures our area’s “weird Florida” vibe with some inspired improvisation mocking Orlando’s artificial history; I wish them luck in their 2018 film festival submissions.

Heading down I-4, 2018 is looking to be a relatively quiet year at the theme parks, sandwiched between 2017’s dueling debuts of Pandora and Volcano Bay and the one-two punch of Harry Potter and Star Wars set for 2019. Universal Orlando’s major new attraction for the year is Fast & Furious: Supercharged, which could soon start “technical rehearsals” ahead of its spring opening on the site of Universal Studios Florida’s demolished Disaster ride. And I’m hoping that a yet-unannounced projection show will return to Hogwarts Castle this summer, based on the success of the Christmas version. But I’m most attracted to the resort’s ultramodern Aventura Hotel, whose rooftop bar (the first at Universal) promises craft cocktails with a world-class view of Krakatau’s volcanic eruptions when it opens in August. From the construction of Guardians of the Galaxy and Ratatouille rides in Epcot to Skyliner gondola cables being strung above the resort, progress on major projects will accelerate across Walt Disney World in 2018. But the only significant addition that will actually get done this year is Toy Story Land, which opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this summer. The Pixar-packed expansion’s familyfriendly Slinky Dog Dash looks like a fun stepping stone between the Barnstormer big-kid coasters; I’ll be waiting in line for the Alien Swirling Saucers, a Little Green Men-inspired adaptation of the awesome Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree spinner found in California’s Cars Land. Afterwards, you might find me at the Edison, Disney Springs’ long-awaited steampunk nightspot; with an immersive environment and live cabaret acts, it could provide the kind of adults-only entertainment that Disney’s been missing since the Adventurers Club closed. skubersky@orlandoweekly.com

the french 75 By Jessica Bryce young

e

very January, the health resolutions kick in: eat better, exercise more, maybe stop drinking alcohol altogether. But you know what Oscar Wilde (everyone’s ideal life coach) said: “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” I’ve learned not to get twisted up trying to completely change my life on Jan. 1 – that’s an effort doomed to failure. Instead, I try making small changes to existing habits. Who knows, maybe they’ll stick if they aren’t too onerous. And if one of your resolutions is to nourish your body a bit better, drinking kombucha falls in the “can’t hurt, might help” category. Proponents say it strengthens the digestive system and liver, among other claims – and if you drink on a regular basis, taking care of your liver is a thing you should think about.

So, in honor of that new-year-new-you impulse that flickers in all of us, I remixed a classic cocktail into a still-delicious, stillspirited beverage, with the added benefit of (maybe) helping your insides. Kombucha’s tang makes it a natural for sour drinks like the margarita, the whiskey sour – or the lemon-twisted, amped-up champagne cocktail called the French 75. The remixed version, subbing in kombucha for the Champagne, carries less alcohol than the classic, but more flavor, and not all of it from sugar: cutting in some Aperol with the gin sweetens the drink and gives it a rosy hue. Perfect for those rose-colored glasses we all don at the start of a new year. jyoung@orlandoweekly.com

BocAs Grill

Pan-Latin restaurant spins a bit of Asian influence into the mix with stellar wokfried rice, but arepas are king here. The pabellón criollo arepa holds the holy trinity of shredded beef, black beans and sweet plantains, along with plenty of white cheese. Pass on the goopy tostones dishes and get your fill of the picanha with a wondrous fat cap. Milkshakes are towering and ridiculous, but so is the torta tres leches served with a vanilla ice cream cone and a syringe of condensed milk. Be still my beating (for now) heart. 7600 Dr. Phillips Blvd., 407-723-8351; $$

too much sAuce

This Mills Park spot gives patrons the option to build their own bowls or choose from a list of signature combinations. The Luau Pork bowl should be topped with a fried egg and scarfed for a Big Islandinspired brunch. Swig Stubborn craft pop from the soda fountain and try a flight of hot sauces from the 11 on offer – carrying planks are provided to make the trek from table to bar easier. 1430 N. Mills Ave., 407-270-7747; $

Antonio’s ristorAnte

This Maitland mainstay has been around for nearly three decades but it’s better than ever, thanks to creative and artistically plated dishes courtesy of executive chef Patrick Tramontana. Long-stem artichokes wrapped in crispy prosciutto and stuffed with goat cheese are as magnificent to eat as they are to behold. Entrée masterpieces include the braised lamb shank served with Parmesan-sweet pea risotto and oak wood-grilled mutton snapper with mushroom risotto and basil-pesto crème fraîche. Be sure to stop by the downstairs gourmet market on your way out. 611 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland, 407-645-5523; $$$

BBB tofu house

Soondubu, the fiery Korean soup of pillowy silken tofu, is BBB’s raison d’etre, and you won’t find a better bowl of it anywhere else in the city. Reddened and rippling with fumes from chili powder and paste, the heady broth is simply magical. Seven soups ranging from

“original beef” to seafood to kimchi are offered, though ordering any of their combo meals (you’ll do well to get the galbi) will score you a bowl of the house soondubu with shrimp, clams and squid. Don’t overlook the bibimbap or the Korean seafood pancake – both are spectacular. Closed Wednesdays. 5140 W. Colonial Drive, 407-723-8299; $$

orAnGe county BreWers/orlAndo PiZZA And WinG co.

The downtown core’s sole craft brewery sets the bar high with a nice selection of beers (try the Green Tea IPA and Perculator Milk Stout) alongside a worthy offering of Neapolitan-style pizzas and some of the best smoked jumbo chicken wings offered in the city. Open daily. 131 N. Orange Ave., 407-914-2831; $$

the smilinG Bison

Orlandoans have been migrating north for a taste of the Smiling Bison’s stellar fare ever since the Bennett Road location shuttered last year. It’s a beautiful space with some beautiful dishes being rendered by chef-owner Josh Oakley. The bison burger, duck-lovers pizza, and house-made sausages are all can’t-miss items, but comfort can be found in the chicken pot pie, Cincinnati 5-Way, and grouper cheeks served in a buttery New England roll. Creative quaffs play right into Sanford’s rep as a cocktail town. Closed Sundays and Mondays. 107 S. Magnolia Ave., Sanford, 407-915-6086; $$$

PiZZeriA roBerti

Proprietor and pizzaiolo Joe Roberti takes great pride in his dough and in-house fermenting approach, which results in a crust that’s thin and bubbly, crisp yet yielding and, above all, flavorful. No matter the pie – simple margherita, or comforting short rib with caramelized onions, or fanciful foie gras – you won’t be disappointed. Closed Sundays. 2751 Chickasaw Trail, 407-634-0041; $$

shirAZ mArket

Some mighty fine kebabs can be had at this Persian market and eatery in Longwood. Of note are ground beef koobideh kebabs, chicken kebabs fashioned from thigh and breast meat, and ghormeh sabzi, an herbaceous stew. Peruse the shelves of spices, oils and pickles, then make your way to the freezers for frozen desserts (get a tub of faloodeh and bastani), cheeses and beverages while you wait. A display case of sweets is hard to overlook – grab a few Persian cream puffs to take home. Open daily. 185 S. Ronald Reagan Blvd., Longwood, 407-951-8084; $

teAk neiGhBorhood Grill mAitlAnd The Maitland outpost offers a menu identical to the MetroWest original, though execution here needs a bit of work. Still, you can gorge on a wide


selection of hefty burgers, including such monstrosities as the cronut burger with a half-pound of meat and maple-pepper bacon, or the “Teak Challenge” – a twopounder with 27 slices of cheese, 24 slices of bacon and so much more. Open daily. 901 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland, 407335-4835; $$

AJ’s Press

You’ll be, ahem, hard-pressed to find a better sandwich than the ones served up at the Longwood outpost of Tampa’s AJ’s Press. Mexican bolillo and telera rolls are weighty enough to hold the porky mélange of smoky ham, smokier Cantimpalo chorizo, and slow-roasted pork in the Cuban; a less filling ham and cheese option is just as solid. Our fave: a beer-braised brisket sammie with pickled jalapenos. Closed Sundays. 182 W. State Road 434, Longwood, 407-790-7020; $$

muddy WAters

Cajun and Crescent City eats come to South Eola. From the gumbo to the smoked trout beignets, the food here is nomworthy of NOLA. Po’boys are fashioned from bread shipped in from Gambino’s in Metairie (get ’em with a side of chicken and sausage jambalaya); the shrimp and grits are damn-near perfect; and the Cedar Key clams in a white wine sauce with pancetta are worth getting extra bread for. The banana bread pudding will put you under its spell. Open daily. 101 S. Eola Drive, 407-843-9676; $$

turkish BAr And Grill Stellar Turkish fare, be it doner kebabs, chicken shish or lamb adana, truly impresses, as do lamb chops and less meaty fare like stuffed white cabbage braced with mint, parsley and garlic and filled with ground beef and rice. Spinach and feta pide – as doughy and delectable a flatbread as you ever will eat – is a must, as is ending with the best kunefe in town. Open daily. 260 Douglas Ave., Altamonte Springs, 407-869-5555; $$$

Joyful GArden

Those with a sense of the adventurous will dive headlong into the seafoodheavy options at this West Colonial Chinese restaurant. There are live critters like crystal crab, lobster, baby pomfret, striped bass, eel and more for the taking, as well as plenty of Hong Kong-style fare. Baby eggplant in a spicy garlic sauce is absolutely luxuriant. The menu is vast, but if you’re in a group, consider sharing a pricey portion of geoduck sashimi. Open daily. 5210 W. Colonial Drive, 407-270-8810; $$$

mesA21

There’s better straight-up Mexican food to be had in this city, though Mesa21’s lakeside view and patio seating is unparalleled. No dishes are particularly noteworthy; most items fall in the “meh” category. A full cocktail bar – and that view – draws the happy hour crowd in. Open daily. 1414 N. Orange Ave., 407-930-8000; $$$

oh my Gyro!

Family-run eatery in Longwood follows in the cart tracks of NYC’s Halal Guys offering platters of yellow turmerictinged rice with chicken, gyro, and falafel along with pita bits, salad, and a drizzle of requisite white sauce (an infernal red sauce is also offered on the side). One thing OMG! has that its halal cart brethren don’t: a selection of below-the-fold Indian fare, including a killer mango lassi. Closed Sundays. 1150 W. State Road 434, Longwood, 407-960-4496; $

Zeytin turkish cuisine

It’s a hit and miss affair at this Turkish resto situated in the shabbier sector of College Park, but there are dishes that make it worth the visit. Doughy lavash with a racy ezme salad, for one, and a stellar pide (flatbread) stuffed with plush roasted beef. Kebabs like the chicken and lamb shish are worth a look, but prices force you to think twice. Pass on the moussaka. End with kunefe and a demitasse of Turkish coffee. 4439 Edgewater Drive, 407-988-3330; $$$

nine sPices hotPot

At this MetroWest hotpot house, a conveyor belt transports ingredients among tables for gluttonous all-youcan-eaters. There are six soup bases to choose from (the spicy veers is infernal), a dozen or so sauces and condiments, and more than 50 potdunking meats and veggies. Fine dining it’s not, but if you haven’t eaten for a day or so, this is just the place for you. Open daily. 5320 S. Kirkman Road, 407-704-1033; $$

PAddlefish

This three-story floating fortress is the best place for seafood in Disney Springs, though the prices may have you abandoning ship. Still, the palatable fare – lobster corn dogs, fried green tomato crab cakes, striped bass en papillote, and delightful seafood boils – make the prices easier to stomach. Strawberry shortcake and a chocolatebourbon tart with candied bacon also help. Some rooms can be louder than others, so don’t hesitate to request a quieter spot if desired. 1670 Buena Vista Drive, 407-934-2628; $$$$

the WAterfront

The fare coming out of the kitchen of this lakeside bar/restaurant isn’t just a notch above its Julie’s Waterfront days, but downright impressive. Korean pork belly with house kimchi, sesame-crusted ahi tuna with seaweed salad, and tuna poké bring an undeniable Asian bent to the menu, but fish camp classics like blackened catfish and stellar fish (haddock) and chips are worth consideration. The cheeseburger is a knockout. Open daily. 4201 S. Orange Ave., 407-866-0468; $$ n

I, Tonya

By St eve Schn eid er

S

o are movies, like, still a thing? Not if you listen to outlets like Forbes, which are responding to the relative underperformance of The Last Jedi by declaring that no one is ever going to see a Star Wars film ever again – and that the American public might be over moviegoing in general, ready to redirect its leisure-time energies into … I dunno, bear-baiting or some shit. Personally, I always take it with a grain of salt when I read about the death of a medium in another dying medium. Maybe Star Wars flicks are simply like sex within marriage: fun every once in a blue moon, but nothing you’re going to want to do every Christmas. Then again, they did call it The Last Jedi, so way to CYA, Disney.

OPeninG thiS WeeK: Hostiles Christian Bale is out in front as a captain in the U.S. Cavalry whose prejudice against Native Americans is eroded when he has to escort a Cheyenne war chief back home to die. Sounds heavy all right, although he does his best to lighten the mood by telling his best jokes about Elizabeth Warren. (R) Insidious: The Last Key Title be damned, I don’t expect this fourth installment in the Insidious franchise to be the last anything – not as long as January is still a viable burial ground for crap horror. The Last Key is actually the second prequel to the first two Insidious pictures; I hope you got that, because there’s going to be a test (and if you pass, we tear up your driver’s license). The plot takes us deeper into the su-

pernatural nether realm called the Further – now forevermore to be known as the Sunken Place for honkies. (PG-13) I, Tonya Welcome to the world of ’90s popcultural reclamation, where all our past villains become heroes. In a feat of retconning almost equal to Monica Lewinsky’s #metoo moment, filmmaker Craig Gillespie’s Tonya Harding apologia is being hailed for making us consider that conspiring to maim your chief rival might be a pretty reasonable reaction to a lousy childhood. Somebody please tell me James Franco isn’t brushing up on his Morton Downey Jr. impression this very minute. (R) ALSO PLAyinG Molly’s Game The obscene and decadent white man’s pastime of underground poker playing (yeah, I’m kind of on the fence about it) may prove the undoing of Jessica Chastain when her activities are discovered by the FBI.

Five-year-old Sadie and her “skull rock” just might be the future of electro punk. Feel old yet? BY MATTHEW MOYER

K

ids can ask for some pretty wild stuff for Xmas, but 5-year-old Columbus, Ohio, resident Sadie (no last name, please; think Sade and Prince and Sylvester) asked her parents for musical equipment in 2016. Luckily for the music world, she found that Santa had left her a Volca Beats drum machine and a Volca bass synth under the tree. And unlike this writer’s childhood ambitions to be a professional wrestling manager and/or mad scientist, Sadie actually threw herself into learning to use these instruments with the healthy sense of disregard for conventions and musical rules that only a child (or Martin Rev) can possess. By February of 2017, Sadie was prepared to play her first show, opening for two out-of-town techno musicians at a neighborhood venue, Cafe Bourbon Street. And was she ever ready. In the period of just over a month, Sadie had found her sound, which she ominously dubbed “skull rock.” It surely ain’t Kidz

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● JAN. 3-9, 2018 ● orlandoweekly.com

Bop. Based on what we’ve seen and heard, “skull rock” is like early, raucous Suicide and the Screamers and Little Annie Anxiety and Le Tigre unconsciously stripped to the barest essentials and collaged together in a rush of pure adrenaline and enthusiasm. Sadie’s up there alone when she plays, just her and her electronics and usually a leather jacket, belting out songs like “Nightmare Moon” and “Night of Doom.” And it’s a glorious thing to see. Kids have made their mark in the DIY musical underground before, from teenage first-wave U.K. punks Eater to preteen Madison, Wisconsin band Old Skull, to 1980s tween NYC post-punker Chandra and even 7-year-old Simon Fair Timony leading the Stinky Puffs in the early ’90s (which at one point included the rhythm section of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic). Sadie is a whole new type of punk mutant – she’s doing everything herself and ferociously commanding a spotlight when girls that age are usually told to be “nice” and “not bossy.” It’s inspiring as hell. This week, Sadie plays her first Florida show at Stardust as part and parcel of a family vacation to (honestly, where else) Disney. It’s a one-off daytime affair, so feel free to bring your own kids along. Gainesville’s swamp-synth maestro Algae Guck and Orlando’s inimitable Jason Kimmins (aka J.A.S.O.N.) fittingly open.

Henry Rollins EVENTS

Hardcore man-of-letters Henry Rollins returns to Central Florida this week with his Travel Slideshow. During Rollins’ extensive travels and decades’ worth of performances he documented his experiences, and he brings his vast collection of photos to share the stories and anecdotes behind them with his trademark eye for (ahem) detail, introspection, opinion and, most of all, humor. Based on the previews and snippets of the Travel Slideshow, Rollins has built upon what he started many years ago with his hard-edged brand of spoken word. He’s now transcended his Black Flag roots and is on par with storytellers and humorists like Mark Twain, Dick Gregory and George Carlin. His travelogue takes you from the Plaza to Timbuktu, Tibet and all seven continents, including Antarctica – now that’s punk rock! As Rollins puts it, “It’s like an adventure film, but one frame at a time.” – Kyle Eagle 8 p.m. | The Plaza Live, 425 N. Bumby Ave. | 877-435-9849 | plazaliveorlando.org | $29.50-$174.50

MUSIC

MUSIC

Four (count ’em) of the finest young, feral hardcore punk practitioners touring this soon after the holidays makes this early Stardust show worthy of a spotlight. But when one of those bands is Washington, D.C.’s Red Death, appropriate notches have been kicked up. The band has moved beyond its hardcore roots, delving enthusiastically into a retro-futuristic thrash sound redolent of crossover bands like DRI and the West Coast pit-diving of Exodus and Testament, with all the attendant solos and screams of “Yow!” that punctuate songs. It’ll be fun. Also come early for locals Flamethrower; they’re making the live rounds again and a recent set at Lou’s was vicious and pretty deranged. – Matthew Moyer

In recent years, this Atlanta guitar slinger has been busy as the righthand gun of the one and only J.D. Wilkes in excellent bands like the Legendary Shack Shakers and the Dirt Daubers. On his own, Hamdallah doesn’t have much recorded work out there – just a 2014 debut EP and a 2016 7-inch – but it’s solid material. He’s got a garage-built sound cranked with blues, rock and punk, a rocket fired straight out from the underside of the American roots. It’s no wonder the Colonel enlisted him in the first place, and this is the chance to see Hamdallah step into the spotlight as his own man. It’ll also be the sendoff for hometown rock & roll heroes the Woolly Bushmen before they conquer the West Coast, so go wish them well. – Bao Le-Huu

Culture Pop: Women of the Research Studio ART

It’s the Maitland museum’s traditional Friday-night party to mark the opening of a new exhibition in its galleries, and this one brings in the New Year with a roar. Women of the Research Studio celebrates the history of its female fellows and artists in residence, from Mina Citron (1896-1991) and Jan Gelb (1906-78) to contemporary mixed-media artists Nikki Painter and Elisabeth Condon, both members of the newly reinvigorated 2017 Artists-in-Residence program. As always at Culture Pop, there’ll be food, drink, music, readings, artist demonstrations and pop-up installations throughout the beautiful grounds of the Maitland art complex. – Jessica Bryce Young 6-9 p.m. | Art & History Museums – Maitland, 231 W. Packwood Ave., Maitland | 407-539-2181 | artandhistory.org | $7-$10

‘EVERYTHING GARDEN,’ BY NIKKI PAINTER

Monday, Jan. 8

The Coldharts: Edgar Allan THEATER

Brooklyn-based performers Katie Hartman and Nick Ryan – better known as the Coldharts – blew Orlando Fringe audiences away last spring with their perverse punk-rock opera The Unrepentant Necrophile, and this week they bring their acclaimed one-woman play, The Legend of White Creek, to the Winter Mini-Fringe. But if you want to know why Orlando originally embraced the duo, you don’t want to miss their reprise of Edgar Allan, which won the Best Show Critics’ Choice award at the 2016 festival. This macabre mini-musical imagines a prepubescent Poe pitted against his boarding-school rival in a deadly battle of wits, with an ironic ending worthy of The Cask of Amontillado. Our reviewer called Hartman’s performance “haunting,” and the intimate Timucua stage should be an ideal setting to see this “quirky, creepy charmer.” – Seth Kubersky 7 p.m. | Timucua White House, 2000 S. Summerlin Ave. | timucua.com | $10-$20 suggested donation

MUSIC

THEATER

It’s true we write a lot about Elizabeth Baker’s various shows, but in our defense she is involved in so many solo and group projects that she seems to put on a different performance every time. Baker and Erich Barganier are touring in support of their new album, …and darkness was upon the face of the deep, which braids together “African-American slave songs, critiques of the American penal system and ruminations of technological dependence” into a sinuous, kinetic helix using experimental electronics, mandolin, toy pianos, miked movement and voice. They’ll be joined at Avalon’s monthly creative-music salon by Preston Beebe, a Montreal-based composer and percussionist, and local musician Steven Head will perform in an electronic/ modular synth/live coding trio with Baker and Barganier to wrap up the evening. – JBY

1994’s Ed Wood, a rollicking cinematic love note to the up-to-that-point reviled and forgotten filmmaker, is not only the fullest flowering of the Johnny Depp–Tim Burton creative symbiosis, but Burton’s finest film. Period. Some may argue that point, but some have also argued erroneously that Wood’s 1959 opus Plan 9 From Outer Space is unwatchable, so whatever. Focusing on the uproariously on-the-fly filming of Wood’s misunderstood science fiction masterpiece, Plan 9, the movie is by turns hilarious, tender and downright inspiring. Why this film succeeds so wondrously comes largely down to the unbelievable ensemble cast, a mix of big-timers and the usual Burton regulars. Johnny Depp as a scenery-chewing Wood and Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi are revelatory, and their friendship forms the heart of the film, but a then-ascendant Bill Murray as Bunny Breckinridge, George “the Animal” Steele as Tor Johnson and Lisa Marie straight-up channeling Vampira make the film absolutely essential watching. The film’s subtle messaging about the importance of DIY creativity and the lifeline that is falling in with a bunch of likeminded outsiders who support each other and you, make this an increasingly timely piece of work. – MM

Brunch With your Pup e V e n TS

January may be the coldest month of the year in Orlando historically, but the forecast for this Sunday calls for a more than comfortable high of 75 degrees. Take advantage of the weather and bring your pupper to the Mennello’s first outdoor brunch of the year. Treat yourself to waffles, quiches and mimosas while your dog gets pampered with turkey meatballs, roasted chicken hearts or lamb sausage. Sign up for a membership and you’ll get all the mimosas or Yuengling you and the dog can stand. Just don’t encourage Fido to become an art critic by lifting his leg at any of the artwork in the sculpture garden. – Thaddeus McCollum 10 a.m.-noon | Mennello Museum of american art, 900 E.

B Y D A N S AVA G E

I married my high-school sweetheart at 17, had a baby, together a few years, mental illness and subsequent infidelity led to things ending. My ex-husband remarried, divorced again, and is now in another LTR. I’m in a LTR for a decade with my current partner (CP), we have a few kids, and I’m so in love with him it terrifies me. My ex frequently makes sexual remarks to me, low-key flirts. I feel an animal attraction in the moment. Whatever. I don’t want to be with him, my relationship with CP is solid AF, and I get amazing fucking at home from a man far more skilled. CP knows about ex-husband’s remarks and one actual physical advance. CP has offered to talk to my ex. I told him nah, I’ll deal with it and make it stop. I talked to my ex-husband today, and he said: “I’m sorry, it’s just teasing, I won’t make an actual move ever again, but you’re the only woman I ever just look at and get immediately hard for, and it’s only a few more years before our kid is fully grown and we don’t see each other anymore. So humor me because you know we both enjoy it.” And it’s true that I do enjoy it. But how harmful is it to engage in flirty banter without any touching, nudity or worse? I hate having secrets, as I feel they are barriers to intimacy, but I’m a 30-something mom and it is so fucking unbearably sexy to be made to feel so desirable even after all that shit between us and it’ll never, ever happen because hell no I’m not sleeping with my ex-hubby, but knowing this man will never get a whiff of my pussy again but can’t help but beg for it with his eyes gives me a sense of power like I’ve never fucking felt before, but even so I don’t want to be a terrible person for hiding this from my CP because I don’t like having secrets from him but this is just one that turns me on to no end but I should nip this in the bud and put a stop to it yesterday because it’s wrong, right? Secret Longings Utterly Titillating

when you get home and there’s nothing wrong with that, right? I’ve been with my girlfriend, “J,” for two years. Her best friend, “M,” is a gay man she’s known since high school. M and I have hung out many times. He seems cool, but lately I’ve been wondering if he and J are fucking behind my back. For starters, J and I rarely have sex anymore. Even a kiss on the cheek happens less than once a week. Meanwhile, J’s Facebook feed has pictures of M grabbing her tits outside a gay club in front of her sister. She told me he’s spent the night in her room, even though he lives only a few miles away. I’ve also recently found out that although M has a strong preference for men, he considers himself bisexual. I understand that everyone loves tits, even if they’re not turned on by them, and gay men can sleep with a girl and actually just … sleep. I also know that her antidepressants can kill sex drive. All three things at once feel like more than just coincidence, though. At the very least, the PDAs seem disrespectful. At worst, I’m a blind fool who’s been replaced. Am I insecure or is there something to these worries? You Pick The Acronym I Gotta Get To Work Your girlfriend’s best friend isn’t gay, YPTAIGGTW, he’s bisexual – so, yeah, it’s entirely possible M is fucking your girlfriend, since fucking girls is something bisexual guys do and, according to one study, they’re better at it. (Australian women who had been with both bi and straight guys ranked their bi male partners as more attentive lovers, more emotionally available and better dads, according to the results of a study published in 2016.) But while we can’t know for sure whether M is fucking J, YPTAIGGTW, we do know who she isn’t fucking: you. If the sex is rare and a kiss – on the cheek – is a once-a-week occurrence, it’s time to pull the plug. Yes, antidepressants can be a libido killer. They can also be a dodge. If your girlfriend doesn’t regard the lack of sex as a problem and isn’t working on a fix – if she’s prioritizing partying with her bisexual bestie over talking to her doc and adjusting her meds, if she hasn’t offered you some sort of accommodation/outlet/work-around for the lack of sex – trust your gut and get out.

I love a good run-on sentence – grammar fetishists are going to get off on diagramming that doozy you closed with – so I’m going to give it a shot, too: I don’t see the harm in enjoying your ex-husband’s flirtations so long as you’re certain you’ll never, ever take him up on his standing offer, but you are playing with fire here, SLUT, so pull on a pair of asbestos panties when you know you’ll be seeing your ex-hubby, and I don’t think you should feel bad about this secret because while honesty is great generally and while the keeping of secrets is frowned upon by advice professionals reflexively, SLUT, a little mystery, a little distance, a little erotic autonomy keeps our sex lives with long-term partners hot – even monogamous relationships – so instead of seeing this secret as a barrier to intimacy, SLUT, remind yourself that the erotic charge you get from your exhubby – the way he makes you feel desirable – benefits your CP, because he’s the one who will be getting a big, fat whiff of your pussy 42

“RUNNERS”

I say I’m uncomfortable with the extremely transgressive territory he wants to explore, he says, “I’m your master and you take my orders.” I think this is shitty form – the bottom should always set the limits. When we’re in play, he says that I chose him as my top precisely because I wanted to see how far I could go and that it’s his job to push me out of my comfort zone. I think he’s twisting my words. Arguing over limits mid-scene makes us both frustrated and angry. I’m not in any physical danger, but his requests (if carried out) could ruin some of my existing relationships. Did I blow it by not giving him a list of my hard limits in advance of becoming his sub? Or is he just a shitty, inconsiderate top trying to take advantage of a novice? After play, he checks in to see if I’m OK, which on the surface looks like great form – aftercare and all – but this also feels manipulative. How can I pull things back to where I’m comfortable? Do I run from the scene – or just this guy? Tired Of Overreaching From A Shitty Top A top who reopens negotiations about limits and what’s on the BDSM menu during a scene – a time when the sub will feel tremendous pressure to, well, submit – is not a top you can trust. The same goes for a top who makes demands that, if obeyed, could ruin their sub’s relationships with family, friends, other partners, etc. Run from this guy, TOOFAST, but not from the scene. There are better tops out there. Go find one. savagelovecast.com mail@savagelove.net ITMFA.org

I’m a recently divorced woman with a high libido. Now that I’m single, I’ve come out as a kinkster. I quickly met someone who swept me off my feet – smart, funny, sexy, proudly pervy and experienced in the BDSM scene – and soon he declared himself as my Dom and I assumed the sub role. This was hot as hell at first. I loved taking his orders, knowing how much my subservience pleased him, and surprising myself with just how much pain and humiliation I could take. However, his fantasies quickly took a darker turn. When ●
