Readers react to blog posts and stories from our previous issue. In our July 4 issue, we reported on how, a generation ago, malls put the nation’s Main Street corridors out of business. Now, Amazon and other e-commerce outlets are doing the same to malls. So what does that mean for the future of Orlando Fashion Square Mall, one of the many mid-sized malls across the country that’s at risk? What do we do with it? @Sergio Guifarro How about you knock it down? It’s not an Orlando landmark. Build affordable apartments since it appears Orlando is lacking that by every report put out over the last couple years. @Betty Bartaczek It means the City of Orlando needs to come up with a revitalization scheme, because obviously the owner is dropping the damn ball. In fact, the entire Colonial section needs a serious revamp. The city can follow in the footsteps of South Florida’s East

Coast cities that took a loan out, revamped commercial areas, then the increase in commercial sales drove increased tax revenue, which those cities then used to pay the loans back. @Crisanda Bravo Some of us still like to touch and try on our stuff and not just click on pictures. It’s sad to see these places dying. On July 6, we reported that Tropical Storm Beryl had intensified into a Category 1 hurricane, making it the first Atlantic hurricane of the season, according to officials. At the time, the hurricane center predicted the storm will continue its path heading northwest off the coast of North Carolina. @Windy Rains I’m finally getting my roof done in two weeks from Hurricane Irma. @Cayla Parks They call it a hurricane because it hurries and whips you like a cane, as a windy old man is apt to do. Now you know it. You can’t un-know it! @Grant Thomas Hurricane party, bitches!

Disney gets a refund after winning tax dispute, a Florida appeals court refuses to allow smokable medical marijuana, Anna Eskamani sues her Democratic opponent and other news you may have missed last week. »

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort wants to hire 61 foreign workers for the upcoming tourist season: According to data from the Labor Department, Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club requested to employ 21 workers from overseas to serve as cooks at the Palm Beach resort from October 2018 to May 2019, and 40 more waiters and waitresses for the same period of time. It’s not the first time the club has requested foreign labor either: In 2017, applications were filed for 15 housekeepers, 20 cooks and 35 waiters. Wait, are they … taking our jobs?

Anna Eskamani sues Democratic opponent in Central Florida House race: The lawsuit, filed in Leon County, accuses Lou Forges, a House candidate facing off against former Planned Parenthood official Eskamani, of having his candidate paperwork notarized by his wife, Patricia. Florida law states that a notary public “may not notarize a signature on a document if the person whose signature is to be notarized is the spouse, son, daughter, mother or father of the notary public.” The penalties for a notary public who “falsely or fraudulently makes a certificate as a notary public” include a felony charge. Meanwhile, Democrats are also accusing Forges of having been recruited by the GOP to run against Eskamani, creating a fake primary.

Disney will get $1.2 million refund from Orange County after winning tax dispute: Disney sued the Orange County Property Appraiser’s Office in 2016 after the county office’s appraisers assessed Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort at a value of nearly $337 million for the 2015 tax year. Disney officials challenged this assessment, arguing the property was actually worth close to $189 million, and won after a judge ruled in their favor, saying the methodology used by the OCPA’s office was flawed.

Florida appeals court refuses to allow smokable medical marijuana while legal fight continues: Chiding a judge who sided with sick patients and saying plaintiffs likely won’t win on the merits of the case, an appellate court on Tuesday refused to allow smokable medical marijuana while the legal fight continues to play out. The ruling by the 1st District Court of Appeal came in a lawsuit initiated by Orlando trial attorney John Morgan and others who maintain that a Florida law barring patients from smoking their treatment runs afoul of a 2016 constitutional amendment that broadly legalized medical marijuana.

Florida’s SunPass toll system starts getting back up to speed: SunPass toll transactions are starting to be processed, 22 days after a $287 million upgrade to the system was expected to be completed on June 11. “Late fees and penalties will not be imposed until the system is operating fully and providing the benefits and ease of access that SunPass customers deserve and expect,” Department of Transportation spokesman Ed Seifert said in a statement. The state had warned the 6.5 million SunPass customers to ensure their pre-paid transponders had enough money on hand to cover collection once the upgrade was completed. orlandoweekly.com

Welcome to Orlando Weekly’s latest semi-regular column, a scatter graph where we rank Sunshine State pols’ behavior each week. Candidate making crowd-savvy moves? Elected official got a case of foot-in-mouth disease? Read about it here.

SHREWD

CHARDO RICHARDSON: Who? That’s what we thought, too. But when the Democratic primary upset in New York hit the airwaves last week, and when the Abolish ICE movement did the same shortly after, so did word of Richardson – who’s challenging U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy in next month’s primary – and his Alex Ocasio-Cortez endorsement. Now it could be said that the newest progressive crush, who also happens to be the president of the Central Florida ACLU, has a fighting chance. Well … maybe. ROCKY DE LA FUENTE: The fact that De La Fuente is running for U.S. Senate in multiple states – last month, he was one of 32 candidates in California’s Senate primary – makes him come off as a bit of a kook. But a challenger is a challenger, and the 2016 Reform Party presidential candidateturned-Republican is focusing his campaign on immigration reform for the progressive better. Plus, the fact that he called Scott “a despicable, heartless criminal” in a news release makes him kinda lovable.

SCREWED

G O O D AT T I T U D E

FORMER U.S. REP. GWEN GRAHAM: Graham knows how to seize a moment. And with Trump’s chance to appoint another Supreme Court Justice striking fear in liberals everywhere, particularly considering the implications it could have on Roe v. Wade, she’s jumped to the forefront of the conversation as the only woman in the Sunshine State’s gubernatorial race. As she tweeted last week, “Women know what’s at stake in this election … our rights are on the ballot.”

U.S. SEN. MARCO RUBIO: Leave it to Rubio to straddle the line of hypocrisy and ride it like he’s in a rodeo. First he’s critical of the president. Then he’s openarms when it comes to trumpeting the great orange buffoon’s kneejerk policies – to wit, when he spoke at a ritzy fundraiser for the biggest Trump super-PAC last week, where guests paid $100,000 just to get in and $250,000 for VIP access. What a steal, on everyone’s part.

C’MON, DUDE

U.S. REP. STEPHANIE MURPHY: If the progressive train is leaving the station, it’s safe to say Murphy isn’t on it. Central Florida’s favorite and least favorite middleof-the-road Democrat isn’t budging when it comes to the Abolish ICE movement. Yeah, she did admit that it’s “in need of significant reform.” But how much weight does that carry when she writes off the idea of nixing a government agency with a history of harassing immigrants? Get with the times, Murphy. orlandoweekly.com

ILLUSTRATION BY CLAY JONES

MAN IN BLACK Anthony Kennedy is retiring. How fucked are we? BY JE FFREY C. BILL M A N

In

retrospect,

Justice

Anthony Kennedy had been telegraphing his imminent departure all session. The court effectively punted on several big cases, ruling on narrow, technical grounds rather than making sweeping decisions. Partisan gerrymandering went back to the lower courts on a standing issue. The case of the anti-gay baker in Colorado was reversed largely because of hostile comments the state’s Civil Rights Commission made about the baker’s religious faith, not necessarily because religious people have a blanket right to discriminate against gay people (though the scope of that ruling will be tested for years to come). Even the travel ban was upheld because, on the third try, the court found that the Trump administration had sufficiently watered it down to no longer make it explicitly a Muslim ban, no matter the president’s bigoted public statements. Kennedy, a Reagan appointee who had become the court’s swing vote over his 30 years on the bench, especially on hotbutton issues like abortion and gay rights, had a chance to stand up for democratic fairness and marginalized populations, but he declined. There were, as there are every term, judgments that will reverberate for

decades – and in this term, not in a good way: the Janus ruling, which will eviscerate public sector unions (already the last stronghold of organized labor), and a decision allowing Ohio to purge its voter rolls of people who don’t vote often enough, which was decried by civil rights and voting rights advocates, both 5-4 splits. But the most consequential decision of all, of course, was Kennedy’s retirement, announced soon after the court adjourned for the summer. By the time you read this, Donald Trump will likely have announced his choice for Kennedy’s replacement, his second pick to the court in as many years (which is as many as President Obama got over eight years). And while Trump’s administration is a torrent of scandal wrapped in mendacity ensconced in a dumpster fire of ineptitude that could be brought to a merciful end two and a half years from now, his reconfigured Supreme Court – engineered by the Federalist Society to placate his right-

to appoint an activist justice who will, at the very least, permit severe restrictions on the right to choose. Considering that more than two dozen states have so-called snapback provisions – meaning that, if Roe goes, they’ll either automatically ban abortion or put in place restrictions that effectively do so – the reproductive-rights landscape could look a lot different a few years from now. But just as important are the things flying somewhat below the radar: Trump’s assertion that, if push comes to shove, he could pardon himself, sparking a constitutional crisis; Fourth Amendment rights as the surveillance state becomes more sophisticated, as evidenced most recently by Amazon’s facial-recognition experimentation in Orlando; criminal justice, drug and sentencing reform, as well as the country’s treatment of refugees; the ongoing diminution of workers’ rights as the oligarchy and business interests gobble up wealth; the regulation of the internet; the future of health care policy, including, should Democrats retake power, the possibility of single-payer. And then there are all the issues we can’t even conceive of right now that will emerge 10 or 20 years from now – by which point Donald Trump will be but a stain on America’s reputation, but his court will be controlling the balance of power and setting strict limits on what the younger, more progressive rising generation can achieve. That’s what’s at stake. Democrats’ efforts to hold McConnell to his own election-year standards will fail, because McConnell has no shame and he wants to win. For the same reason, the argument that Trump shouldn’t get to appoint a court that might rule on an investigation into him will fail. The only hope of preventing a regressive future is to fight hard and to fight now, to bombard supposedly moderate Republicans like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski and wishy-washy Democrats like Joe Manchin with phone calls and emails, not to mention all-talk-no-action cowards like Jeff Flake and Marco Rubio, demanding that they not roll over for whatever half-baked Bircher the administration coughs up, telling them that it takes one or two Republicans to force Trump to nominate someone like Kennedy – not a liberal, but someone who will preserve the last shreds of the court’s dignity and not let it devolve into a pawn of the Trump White House. The far right knows the stakes of this game, and they’ve been playing it for a long time. The question is whether progressives can rise to the challenge.

wing base – will hold sway over all facets of American life for a generation. Recognize this for what it is: the conservative endgame. There’s a lot of Trump’s bullshit that the more politically sophisticated members of the religious and free-market right are willing to put up with in exchange for what they deem to be solid Supreme Court picks. Sure, the rubes at the MAGA rallies may actually care about building the wall or locking her up or starting a trade war or throwing babies in kiddie concentration camps or whatever, but for the elites who know better – and who are actively exploiting the rubes for their own purposes – this is it. So: Give Trump two (or, better yet, three, should a liberal justice’s health fail) court picks and then, fine, let Robert Mueller do his thing. They’ll have gotten what they wanted out of the Faustian bargain. There’s a reason Mitch McConnell obliterated Senate norms to deprive Obama of even a hearing on a Supreme Court pick, holding the seat open a full year to allow a Republican successor to have it. In their eyes, the ends justify the means. In short, this is the only thing holding the elite level of pro-Trump conservatism together. (For the rabble, it’s authoritarianism mixed with a penetrating fear of diminishing white, Christian, patriarchal privilege, according to multiple studies.) And that’s why you have the Koch brothers, who despise Trump especially on issues like tariffs and immigration, gearing up to spend millions on behalf of his Supreme Court nominee. It’s not just the obvious issues like abortion and gay marriage. Of course, those things will be under immediate threat should Trump successfully replace Kennedy with another ideologue like Neil Gorsuch. Is the gay marriage ruling imperiled? Perhaps, although public opinion has sufficiently shifted as to offer it some protection. However, expect conservative states to try to chip away at it, allowing more and more leeway for people to discriminate against LGBTQ people under the guise of religious freedom. How about Roe v. Wade? That’s more likely to vanish, even though it has 2-1 support, according to Quinnipiac. The intensity of conservative activists’ feelings will almost certainly force Trump orlandoweekly.com

NEWS LAWS OF UNCERTAINTY Puerto Rican evacuees now living in Orlando face a daily quandary as FEMA extends housing aid in tiny increments BY MON IVETTE COR D EI R O

S

ometimes, Erie Salgado would like to cry for days out of sheer frustration. Almost a year ago, his family lost their home and all their possessions in Puerto Rico to floods caused by Hurricane María. Like tens of thousands of other Puerto Ricans, Salgado, his wife Bethzaida Crespo, and their two children fled the island to seek shelter in Central Florida. For months, they have lived cramped in a small hotel room at the Holiday Inn in Kissimmee paid for with FEMA’s hotel voucher program, cooking meals with a microwave and small appliances. Salgado, 40, has found several jobs in painting and construction, but he says he’s also been a victim of wage theft because he doesn’t speak English well – one former employer owes him nearly $1,000. Meanwhile, Crespo has dedicated her time to finding them a place to live, without success. The waiting lists for public housing are two years long, nearby apartments aren’t affordable or available, and even other extended-stay motels are out of their price range at $1,450 a month. “It’s not easy,” Salgado says in Spanish. “People think we want to live off the government. I don’t like that. I want to keep pushing forward to support my family. At times, I want to cry and cry and not stop. But I have to be strong for them.” The latest blow for Salgado’s family came after FEMA announced it would stop granting hotel vouchers, also known as the Transitional Shelter Assistance program, for about 1,200 displaced Puerto Rican households on June 30. The federal agency offered people free plane tickets back to the island, though only 188 families had signed up to leave as of June 28, according to FEMA. With nowhere to go, Salgado and Crespo packed their things into suitcases

and lined them up against the wall. On Saturday night, hours before they were set to check out on Sunday, the family got a last-minute reprieve. A federal judge in Massachusetts temporarily blocked FEMA from cutting housing aid for Puerto Rican evacuees after a lawsuit was filed by the civil rights group LatinoJustice PRLDEF. To comply with a court order before a hearing on Monday, FEMA gave displaced Puerto Rican families until July 5 to remain on the TSA program. Later that week, U.S. District Judge Timothy Hillman ordered FEMA to extend the aid until July 23 to give both parties time to prepare their arguments. “I find that further briefing on the issues would be helpful to the Court,” Hillman wrote in his order. “I would like the parties to address the implication of the refusal of the Governor of Puerto Rico to request an extension of the TSA program benefits.” FEMA would not comment about pending litigation, but in a statement, the agency said it would also extend a program offering Puerto Rican families free plane tickets back to the island until Aug. 30. The lawsuit accused FEMA of “arbitrarily, capriciously and unlawfully”

deciding to cut off aid to the TSA program for Puerto Rican evacuees. “What we’re talking about here is not families that want a free stay – they’re families that lost everything,” says Kira Romero-Craft, managing attorney at LatinoJustice’s Southeast office. “The majority of our working-class families got out of the hotels. The folks left behind are the most vulnerable: They’re the ones that have very young children, that have sick elderly folks, so those are the folks that we’re looking to protect.” Romero-Craft points out that victims of hurricanes Katrina and Rita were provided TSA assistance for 26 months, while FEMA has so far paid for nine months of hotel vouchers for María victims. “We’re not asking for anything different than what other families have received after natural disasters,” she says. “We are asking for the same treatment. We want to remind everyone that these are U.S. citizens who deserve our protection and deserve our support during this difficult time.” Crespo was one of seven plaintiffs included in the lawsuit. “We need to raise awareness of how this thing is going down – it’s messed up,”

“What we’re talking about here is not families that want a free stay – they’re families that lost everything.”

orlandoweekly.com

Crespo says. “You’re telling me that we got hit by Irma and María and now we’re getting thrown back to Puerto Rico, where it’s unlivable right now. The lights went off for the whole island a few days ago, so how is it livable?” Last weekend, U.S. Rep. Darren Soto was at the Super 8 motel off Highway 192. Soto said FEMA had not alerted hotel owners about the judge’s order or the TSA extension in the morning, so many Puerto Rican families were being asked to leave. The Congressman was contacting hotels and visiting displaced families to let them know about the new deadline. “This will give us a few more days to hopefully get some of these families that have been more difficult to place a place to go,” Soto says. Father José Rodríguez says he also had trouble helping Puerto Rican evacuees who were living at the Staybridge Suites near the Orlando International Airport. “I was helping one of the families recheck in, and it was a hassle,” he says. “They weren’t nice about it. When I asked them if they would please call back the families who had already checked out and left, the manager told me she had no way of doing that, and then she wouldn’t help me any further.” Rodríguez, who is part of the coalition Vamos4PR Action, says another family staying at the Mystic Dunes resort in Celebration called him panicking at 9 a.m. on July 1. “The hotel manager wouldn’t let them stay, and at 10 a.m., they brought them trash bags to their rooms to tell them they had to go,” he says. “We talked to the manager and he finally said they could stay for a few hours until things got figured out.” Some families probably ended up on the streets, Rodríguez says, because neither they nor the hotels were alerted about the extension until late Sunday after evacuees checked out. “My fear is that some of them check out, check into a cheaper hotel and they’re already spending what little money they have, that they can’t afford to spend, to get their own hotel room,” he says. Desiree Torres had already packed her belongings in a corner of her Super 8 suite and booked a room at another hotel when


she heard about the small extension from FEMA. “I sent my kids back to Puerto Rico to stay with my mom for the summer because I didn’t want them to deal with this,” Torres says in Spanish. Torres now earns $18 an hour working a construction job at the Blue Origin facility in Cape Canaveral. It’s still difficult for the single mother to get an affordable apartment because she has to factor in other costs like daycare and gasoline. She’s saved some money for a security deposit, but Torres is worried she’ll have to spend it on hotel rooms after FEMA’s latest extension ends on July 5. “There are jobs here, but the problem is housing,” she said. “Then there’s the salaries at $8 per hour. Apartments are asking people to make three times the amount of

rent in a month, plus two months’ worth of rent as a deposit.” Torres doesn’t want to go back to Puerto Rico because she’s already made a life here – aside from a job, she has a car and her kids are enrolled in school. FEMA gave her about $5,000 to fix her destroyed house in Puerto Rico. It was enough to pay for a roof and some of the internal structure, but the house remains without electricity. “I don’t want to go back because I suffered so much over there,” she says. “I think FEMA believes we’re not hustling, but honestly, I haven’t stopped moving. I’ve been looking for a home for my kids, a job that pays better. I’ve been trying to make something better for myself every day.”

“I think FEMA believes we’re not hustling, but I’ve been trying make something better for myself every day.”

MARIA BAMFORD | PHOTO BY BRUCE SMITH

LADY DYNAMITE Maria Bamford comes to the Plaza Live fresh off two highly acclaimed projects for Netflix BY T HA DDEUS MCCOL LU M

M

aria Bamford isn’t quite a household name yet, but for a large segment of comedy fans, she’s one of the best working comedians in the business today. The 47-year-old Los Angeles resident probably first came to the attention of a wider audience when she was featured on the original 2005 Comedians of Comedy tour – and the accompanying documentary – alongside Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn and Zach Galifianakis. But it’s her 2012 special, The Special Special Special, that secured her place as a cult favorite. Shot in her own living room in front of an audience of two – her parents – the special combines Bamford’s unique stage presence

– often incorporating impressions of her family and others with a variety of voices and mannerisms – with surreal moments like pizza getting delivered in the middle of the show. Bamford stops into the Plaza Live this week in the wake of two profile-raising projects for Netflix: Lady Dynamite, a surreal series loosely based on Bamford’s real life, and Old Baby, a comedy special that once again plays with conventional structure as Bamford performs her jokes in front of audiences at a series of offbeat venues like a park bench or a bowling alley.

BY SETH KUBERSKY After years of patrons informally calling it “Orlando Shakes,” the Orlando Shakespeare Theater has adopted the abbreviation as their official name. The organization’s rebranding – which required two national consultants and a year of focus group research – also includes a new logo that incorporates Helvetica, handwriting and a quill pen. Two of Orlando’s biggest arts companies have made major announcements about their leadership: The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra’s board of directors picked UCF dean emeritus Dr. Mary Palmer to serve as their president for a two-year term, and Orlando Ballet hired Shane Jewell as their latest executive director. An Oklahoma City native, Jewell was executive director of that city’s ballet for four years, and previously led the OK Mozart International Music Festival; no word on his prior experience with 100 percent humidity.

Did you ever plead for a certain

present, only for anticipation to sour mere moments after its unwrapping? Did another unheralded gift unexpectedly enthrall instead of the one you’d hyped up in your head? Recent dueling debuts at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando demonstrate that when it comes to buildup, bigger isn’t always better. Back in the summer of 2015, Disney announced that a new expansion dedicated to Woody, Buzz Lightyear and their plastic Pixar pals was in the works for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Flash forward nearly three years to the public premiere of Toy Story Land on June 30, which instantly increased the attraction-starved Studios’ roster of rides by 50 percent. It’s no surprise that Disney devotees swarmed to DHS on opening day of the park’s first major addition in over a decade, waiting in pouring rain for hours simply to enter the new area. But by day two, I was able to stroll right into the new land at midday without queueing and experience all its offerings within an afternoon, indicating that pentup demand for the expansion may be shorter-lived than anticipated. Orlando’s Toy Story Land – which is accessed through a nondescript pathway near the park’s now-neglected Pixar Place – makes a much better first impression than its Parisian cousin, with a big Woody statue as a welcoming photo-op and the speeding trains of the new Slinky Dog Dash coaster adding kinetic excitement to Andy’s backyard. Slinky is the expansion’s marquee attraction, and its multiple magnetic launches and airtime-inducing bunny hills hit the thrill-o-meter sweet spot between Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Big Thunder Mountain.

Dueling debuts at Disney and Universal demonstrate that when it comes to buildup, bigger isn’t always better. to secure, but I felt it was worth the hour I spent waiting standby for my first spin. Speaking of spinning, the area’s other new ride is Alien Swirling Saucers, an unfortunately acronymed copy of Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree from California Adventure’s Cars Land. ASS is surprisingly fun for a spruced-up carnival spinner and features a clever chiptunes soundtrack, but isn’t worth more than a half-hour wait. The decade-old Toy Story Mania shooting ride (with a relocated entrance) rounds out the area’s attraction count, unless you include Woody’s Lunch Box, a Babybel-sponsored snack stand which may end up being TSL’s sleeper hit – their Monte Cristo sandwich is the best counter-service meal I’ve had at DHS in years. Unfortunately, I quickly discovered that TSL’s dead-end design dooms it to being merely a speed bump en route to 2019’s Star Wars land. For one, there’s barely any shade, so you’ll want an umbrella for the outdoor queues, come rain or shine. Something like a ginormous picnic table over the main walkway would have provided cover and better established guests’ toy-sized scale. Beyond the rides, the only entertainment is taking selfies in front of Instagram-friendly colored walls or watching the Green Army Soldiers (whose platoon finally includes women) melt inside their costumes. Unlike Animal Kingdom’s Pandora or Universal’s

Wizarding Worlds, TSL ultimately lacks incentives to linger and explore, which is a shame since its lighting looks lovely after dark. On the other hand, a reason to linger longer is exactly what Universal Orlando has delivered with its knockout new nightender. Cinematic Celebration, which was announced only nine months ago and just named in June, began surprise “technical rehearsals” on July 4 in anticipation of its official premiere. Director Mike Aiello and his team have built on everything learned from Universal’s earlier attempts, fusing film footage featuring the resort’s best-loved franchises – from Jurassic Park to Transformers to Harry Potter – with more than 120 illuminated fountains. Projection mapping on the New York facades, my favorite part of the old 360 show, makes a masterful comeback as buildings freeze or burst into flames, and multiple layers of mist screens create Cinerama-esque ultra wide-screen visuals. There’s so much to see that the pyrotechnics, which merely punctuate the opening segments, are almost unnecessary, though the fireworks are impressive during the Minion-fueled finale. But it’s the subtler, more artistic moments – a pulsing crimson heartbeat during Fast & Furious, a lyrical interlude to Shrek’s theme – that elevate Cinematic Celebration above a mere clip compilation. The result is a satisfying 19-minute nightcap that rivals Mickey’s offerings; I’d rank it ahead of both Rivers of Light and DHS’s Fantasmic. World of Color in Anaheim – which was obviously among this show’s many influences – is among my all-time favorites, but Universal’s production provides almost as much aquatic beauty and more bang, without the airfare.

CILANTRO’S TAQUERIA Cilantro’s al pastor is somewhat untraditional, thanks to our state Department of Health’s restrictive regulations on pork, which outlaw the trompo – or vertical spit – that is customary in Mexico City. For the same reason, chef Eduardo Hinojosa skips the pineapple that is also a traditional part of al pastor; it doesn’t taste the same cooked on the griddle, he says. So, it may not be the tipico al pastor, but this combo of braised pork, onion and cilantro on a corn tortilla is good eating, particularly slathered with the house-made salsa verde. 1427 S.

T

here’s no denying Orlando is still in the grip of taco madness; we’ve always had authentic taquerías hidden away if you knew where to look, but now it seems like yet another trendy new taco joint has popped up every time you log onto social media. As for the actual tacos, some are testaments to real taculinary skill. Some are what you might call “stunt

tacos” (more about “can we?” than “should we?”). But all are part of the taco fabric of Orlando. Wave that flag! BLACK ROOSTER TAQUERIA Hear us out: You gotta try the off-menu pork fat taco at Black Rooster. No, no, if you’re picturing a big lump of jiggly fat in a tortilla, you’ve got it all wrong; the cubes

THE OCOEE TACO CO. The spot is off the beaten path, but the tacos are worth beating a path to. These are the tried-and-true truck tacos you grew up with, if you grew up on the West Coast, and if you didn’t, just trust that you need to eat them. Everything is fresh and house-made, without being fussy or “gourmet.” Chomp the carne asada with its blanket of cilantro and side of radish slices. 40 Taylor St., Ocoee, 407-614-2990

GRINGOS LOCOS It’s not what you’d call an authentic street taco experience, but Gringos’ Double Ds are their most popular item – a doubledecker treat consisting of queso spread on a soft tortilla and wrapped around a crunchy shell. What’s inside doesn’t matter, but it’s your choice of meat, more cheese, lettuce, pico and sour cream. Multiple locations, gringoslocos.net HAWKERS ASIAN STREET FARE Another unconventional but undeniably tasteful choice: Hawkers’ East Street Tacos, which wrap five-spice-dusted, flash-fried fish fillets in a flour tortilla and top with red onions, cilantro, cucumber strips and a creamy sauce. Multiple locations, eathawkers.com HUNGER STREET TACOS Hibiscus flowers – known as jamaica (pronounced ha-mai-kah) – are a popular ingredient in central Mexico, especially in Mexico City, where tart, fuchsia hibiscus tea and aguas frescas are peddled in every bodega.

Orange Ave., 407-868-9007, reyesmex.com SAINT AÑEJO MEXICAN KITCHEN Try the trio of mole tacos, which the menu calls “fork tacos” (LOL). Three corn tortillas are topped with marinated chicken generously slathered with a reddish mole, sprinkled with queso fresco and chopped scallion, and sided with a bowl (not a few – a bowl) of blistered jalapeño slices. 5248 Red Bug Lake Road, Winter Springs, 407-6363600, saintanejomexicankitchen.com TACOS EL RANCHO Say yes to lengua tacos: buttery-soft cubes of beef tongue with onions, cilantro, tomatoes, cheese and sour cream layered atop two soft tortillas.

BY ST EVE SCHN EID ER

THIS WEEK: Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation In the kid-flick pantheon, vacation stories are usually a sign of flagging inspiration. Not that Hotel Transylvania was a particularly novel franchise to begin with, coming out of the gate like Mad Monster Party with Adam Sandler in the place of Boris Karloff. (I know: that’s a trade only Drumpf could negotiate.) One would like to think there’s slightly more promise to the premise of HT3, which puts these particular mad monsters not only on vacation but on a seafaring cruise; just make sure it’s a Carnival vessel and watch the jokes pile up with the raw sewage. But maybe I’m hoping for too much, since the advance promo has focused instead on the shipboard romance between Dracula (Sandler) and a descendant of his mortal nemesis, Van Helsing. If they get to sit at the captain’s table, expect a lot of jokes about ordering the stake. (PG) Skyscraper For a while now, friends on social media (and some I actually know) have been dogging this latter-day disaster/action flick as

“Die Hard in a building.” But they’re missing the prime avenue for jokes here: Star Dwayne Johnson’s character is an amputee with a prosthetic left leg. (How did Amy Poehler not get a call on this?) Johnson plays an FBIman-turned-security-specialist who watches as the Hong Kong building where he works is taken over by terrorists. Then he himself is framed for the crime, forcing him to go on the hop ... I mean run. Will he be able to cut off these dastardly criminals at the knees? What will he do to get a leg up on them? And is there one more joke I can throw out here to guarantee angry comments from some reallife Lieutenant Dans? Frankly, I’m stumped. (PG-13) Sorry to Bother You Activist rapper Boots Riley directs his first feature, an off-the-wall satire about an Oakland telemarketer (Lakeith Stanfield) who becomes a success by learning how to use his “white voice.” Sounds legit to me. I’m just grateful I’ve been able to beat so many harassment raps by sounding like Morgan Freeman. (R)

ALSO PLAYING: Boundaries Conservative websites are taking credit for killing this road-trip flick at the box office as retaliation for supposedly offensive comments costar Peter Fonda made about the Trump family on Twitter. Now, the opening-weekend figures they were citing represented receipts from just five theaters. And it’s a smaller independent release that was never intended to go head-to-head with the big summer entries. And Fonda is only in it relatively briefly. But hey, a win is a win, right? And yes, I am getting tired of all this winning. (R)

KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S GATE Follow Drab Majesty from here to eternity BY TYLER BARNEY

“T

here is no place for us to go same could be said for Drab Majesty and but up.” So concluded Glnody, its creator, an androgynous extraterrestrial one of the 39 students of the making its way through our planet in the Heaven’s Gate religious cult, in an Earth form of a 6-foot-4-inch human body. The body belongs to a man named Exit Statement penned shortly before the group made its mass “departure” in 1997. Andrew Clinco, an L.A. native with a backFollowing 22 years of studying in the “class- ground in fine art and a penchant for the room here on planet Earth,” the members bizarre. After playing drums for multiple bands, he found himself of the UFO millenarian longing for more colors movement graduated to DRAB MAJESTY in his sonic palette. In his “The Evolutionary Level with Deafheaven, search for artistic freeAbove Human” by means Uniform dom, he soon learned of a lethal phenobarbital7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17 that the songwriting and-applesauce cocktail The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. process was ultimatewith a vodka chaser. 407-246-1419 ly beyond his control. Two decades later, the thesocial.org “I’m able to translate spirit of the cult lives on $22-$25 these rudimentary ideas through Drab Majesty, a that come through,” he Los Angeles-based project dedicated to similar celestial pursuits. explains, “but I still feel there’s another What began as a creative outlet for a drum- working hand at play.” And thus Deb Demure was born. Feeling mer with a few extra songs quickly evolved into a religious experience of cosmic pro- unworthy of taking “human credit” for the portions, complete with an alien alter ego songs he “received,” Clinco needed a way to separate himself from the divine being and legions of devoted followers. “I find cults to be intriguing because responsible for inspiring the music. The they’re the vision of one person,” explains creation of Demure provided “a vessel to Deb Demure, the founder of the other- translate deeper sonic ideas,” echoing the worldly outfit. “They’re often eccentric Heaven’s Gate principle of the human body people with a very interesting story.” The as a genderless vehicle.

GREAT LIVE MUSIC RATTLES ORLANDO EVERY NIGHT

Deb Demure is not just a name, though. The asexual alien serves as an ambassador to its earthly creator’s hometown, a place both “drab” and “majestic in size.” In its first incarnation, Demure paid homage to the Unarius Academy of Science, a Los Angeles collective designed to advance a new “interdimensional science of life.” The aptly-titled Unarian Dances album introduced Drab Majesty to the world with four songs of bedroom synth-pop honoring the UFO organization’s colorful legacy of flying saucers and bejeweled space goddesses. (Do yourself a favor and search “Unarius” on YouTube.) A few years later, the stars aligned. Demure’s early sonic transmissions caught the attention of Dais Records, an independent label at the head of the experimental music class. Home to artists like Psychic TV – whose founder, Genesis P-Orridge, laid the fundament for genderbending decades before Demure’s arrival – and Cold Cave, a likeminded synth-pop project, Dais and Drab Majesty were a match made in heaven. In 2015, the label released Drab Majesty’s debut full-length, Careless. Blending the familiar sounds of the ’80s with a touch of the supernatural, the eightsong masterpiece offered something for everyone. The album became an immediate classic, gaining Demure a cult following among old goths and fledgling freaks alike. For a moment, Drab Majesty was on top of the underworld. Then came Mona. Formerly known as Alex Nicolaou, the second member of Drab Majesty became Demure’s “Space Brother” after the two met and immediately bonded in 2014. Without hesitation, the Los Angeles DJ accepted Demure’s invitation to join the project for a European tour. Mona’s addition of synth and vocal complements to Demure’s original compositions took their live shows to the next level, and the two have since embarked on multiple worldwide tours. Since first meeting Mona, Demure has released yet another immaculate album of transcendental songs under the Drab Majesty banner. Titled The Demonstration, the project’s second full-length through Dais is rich with references to the Heaven’s Gate cult, with tracks like “39 by Design” and “Forget Tomorrow” pointing directly back to Marshall Applewhite and his crew of diehard believers. While you may not be ready to leave this world just yet, Drab Majesty is here to help you leave yourself. Join them on Tuesday at the Social for an out-ofthis-world experience as they open for Deafheaven.

This week, the disappearance of

Blackstar and the latest showcase of young talent by a resurgent Ugly Orange. And heads up, kooks, TLU will be on break next week.

THE DISAPPEARANCE AND FALLOUT OF BLACKSTAR

The rumors are true. The promising nightlife juggernaut that Blackstar and sister venue Odd Jobs set out to be is dead. Of all the music scene news in this busy year, the splashiest and most seismic by far was the transformation and rise of this little complex (and, though it has yet to fully materialize, the wider Firestone site). This downtown event space was the biggest new potential force to emerge in ages. However, what launched early this year as a forward-minded vision housed in a compound of exceptionally outfitted facilities is already gone before it could ever really flex its wings. The club complex has been sold to new owners and there’s been no word yet on what their concept is. But it won’t be the one that everyone’s been watching intently since late last year. There were already serious signs that a sea change was afoot prior to the sale. Most telltale was that the loaded and dynamic creative team assembled by Orlando-based music biz pro Mike Feinberg to develop the Blackstar concept was essentially ousted by the ownership of the Firestone property, including Feinberg himself. The only one that remains as of this writing is Dan Larson, one of the team’s biggest booking forces with a résumé that includes Okeechobee Music Festival and the Dr. Phillips Center.

Blackstar, launched earlier this year as a forward-minded vision housed in a compound of exceptionally outfitted facilities, is already gone before it could flex its wings.

promoters and DJs he’s worked with at Spacebar and Blackstar and booking them at Stonewall. But back to Blackstar. It’s worth remembering that Blackstar/Odd Jobs was supposed to be the first major step in a complete overhaul of the entire Firestone block. The next was a massive renovation of the historic Firestone nightclub to become a House of Blues-esque live venue named the Vanguard. That project is still moving forward. But seeing how Blackstar But, although it would’ve been great came and went, any stirrings on this propto see what this all-star cast could’ve erty will continue to be ground zero for done together, at least it looks like they’re scene intrigue, albeit for some different all getting back to the productive ways reasons now. that made each a notable scene-making force.

Sam Smith MUSIC

British native Sam Smith’s breakout LP took the world by storm back in 2014 – when his impressive vocals were (jokingly) deemed to sound a lot like Adele’s – but he’s grown up since then. His sophomore record, The Thrill of It All, scored Smith his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 chart. Its lyrics have given us a glimpse into Smith’s diary, exploring his relationships, success and inner conflicts. With songs like “Pray” in the hands of legendary producer Timbaland, Smith was able to deliver a record comprised of both gospel-infused hip-hop and piano-led ballads. Fans can most likely expect Smith to perform his hit song, “Stay With Me,” a global sensation about unrequited love. – Paola Perez with Cam | 8 p.m. | Amway Center, 400 W.

Science After Sundown EVENTS

The Orlando Science Center is known for its frequent after-hours events, but this summer they’re staying open late every Friday and Saturday through Aug. 11. That means you can go through their latest exhibit, Hall of Heroes – an exploration of the history of superheroes with lots of hands-on activities – without having to elbow your way through a crowd. You’ll also get access to the observatory to view the night sky – not really an option during daylight hours – and take in a laser light show in the vertigo-inspiring CineDome. And guests of legal age can grab a few adult beverages. Plus, there’s a series of classic sci-fi films rotating every weekend, including the 1956 classic Robby the Robot-starring Forbidden Planet this weekend. – Thaddeus McCollum 10 a.m.-11 p.m., through Aug. 11 | Orlando Science Center, 777 E.

Road to Change Block Party OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK 36

CIVICS

In an effort to register voters, survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting are going on tour, hitting Orlando as their first stop. The evening will be spent listening to live music, enjoying food from local vendors, and listening to speakers from Parkland and Pulse tell their stories and advocate for change. The Brady Campaign will help with the project but organizers are asking for volunteer aid as well. The Road to Change Tour is nationwide but students from Parkland are traveling to different districts across Florida in hopes of spurring legislative action. – Larissa Hamblin 7-10 p.m. | Walt Disney Amphitheater, Lake Eola Park, 195 N.

Tacos & Tequila EVENTS

Judging from the number of taco spots in town, it’s clear Orlandoans will eat just about anything wrapped in a tortilla. Indulge in #peaktaco obsession at Orlando Weekly’s Tacos & Tequila celebration this weekend. Pick Orlando’s best taco from your favorite spots around the city, including Chela Tacos & Tequila, El Patron, Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, Tijuana Flats, On the Border, Orlando Food Department Co., Sugar Sow Bacon & BBQ, Tacos El Rancho, Tony Roma’s, Wall Street Cantina, Cinco Tacos & Tequila and John & Shirley’s Catering.

Bastille Day Celebration EVENTS

There’s an extra frisson of excitement around this 10th iteration of the beloved Audubon Park Garden District event this year, thanks to the political climate in which we find ourselves – frankly, we wonder every morning if this is the day when America is going to storm the barricades. But even if we set aside the political underpinnings of the Bastille Day holiday, it’s still a thrilling day packed full of fun: baguette fencing at 3, a wine-and-cheese party at 4, a French-style flea market at 5, a “Murder on the French Riviera” mystery party at 6, a Moulin Rouge cabaret at 9 and of course a wandering Marie Antoinette, who’ll show up at Redlight Redlight at an unannounced time. (Please, no unsheathed blades near la Princesse’s neck.) Whether you’re in it for the song of angry men or just another chance to rock that Breton-stripe boatneck, you’re certain to amusez-vous bien. – Jessica Bryce Young events begin at 3 p.m. | various locations within the Audubon Park Garden District | audubonparkgardens.com | various prices

Uncomfortable Brunch Presents: Nymphomaniac FILM

For what is surely the longest Uncomfortable Brunch ever, this special screening features both director’s cut versions of Lars von Trier’s two-part sex epic, Nymphomaniac. That’s five and a half hours of witnessing Charlotte Gainsbourg’s character, Joe, recount her complicated and promiscuous sexual history to Stellan Skarsgard. Though it features plenty of unsimulated sex scenes – mainly accomplished by compositing lead actors onto body doubles – the film is not exactly titillating. Instead, it vacillates between comic farce and exquisite bummer – no surprise to anyone who’s suffered through a few of Von Trier’s other films. Uncomftobrunch got special permission from Magnolia Pictures for this screening, and it’s likely one of the only times you’ll get to see the whole thing projected in front of an audience. New host (not permanent, as far as we know) the Nook provides plenty of doughnut, toast and coffee options, along with craft beer. – Thaddeus McCollum 2:30 p.m. | The Nook on Robinson, 2432 E.

Kee Avil MUSIC

Montreal’s Vicky Mettier, better known as Kee Avil, deals in loop-based guitar and vocal music that displays a much wider, and more visceral, palette of emotions and textures than many in-vogue types do with that exact tool set. Songs may start like a gentle homage to Helium but then quickly become an angular, disorienting collage of devotional music and Fred Frith-style guitar freakouts. Constantly harrowing. And there’s more! For all intents and purposes a mini-fest, this collaboration between SR50 Magazine and Anime Fun Shop also includes Gainesville’s devotional-phantasmagorics Time, and a host of young locals redefining traditional noise narratives into new and exciting loudness. – Matthew Moyer with Time, Her Sharpness, DJ DeviantArt Heaux, Jawl-Nini, L.H.

The Pauses MUSIC

Scheduling a show on Friday the 13th could maybe be seen as inviting some form of minor misfortune, but Pauses frontperson Tierney Tough can be forgiven for not being able to predict Blackstar’s implosion and the subsequent scramble to find a new venue. All’s well that ends well, because the local indie all-stars will be celebrating the release of their new album, Unbuilding, appropriately at Park Ave CDs. Opening the night is J. Robbins, producer of Unbuilding and an underground icon, best known as frontman of the mighty Jawbox (and lest we forget, member of D.C. hardcore legends Government Issue). Additionally, the Pauses are heading out on some lengthy tours so this might be your last chance to see them live in the City Beautiful for a good bit. Come out, buy records and support some local titans. – Matthew Moyer with J. Robbins | 9 p.m. | Park Ave CDs, 2916 Corrine Drive | 407-447-7275 | parkavecds.com | free

B Y D A N S AVA G E

Longtime Savage Love fanboy with a bit of a conundrum – and it’s your fault! I’m a bi man in my 30s. To use Charles M. Blow’s word, my bisexuality is “lopsided.” This means that I fall in love with women exclusively, but I love to have sex with men occasionally. My current girlfriend not only approves, she likes to join in. We have a great kinky sex life, and at times we invite a hot bi dude to join us. You keep saying that to counter bisexual erasure, it is the duty of every bisexual to come out of the closet. If I were a “proper” bisexual, i.e., romantically interested in men also, that would be no problem – my family and work and social circles are extremely liberal. However, your advice to us kinksters and people in open relationships is that we probably shouldn’t come out to our parents or colleagues, since when it comes to sex, it’s advisable to operate on a need-to-know basis. While I agree with this completely – my mother doesn’t need to know my girlfriend pegs me – the rule keeps me in the closet as well. Since I’m only sexually interested in men, wouldn’t I be revealing facts about my sex life if I came out as bi? I also wouldn’t want to mislead gay men into thinking that I’m available for romantic relationships with them. So which rule is more important: the duty to come out as a bisexual or the advice to operate on a need-to-know basis when it comes to your sex life? Bisexual Leaning Out Warily

same time, not necessarily in the same way and not necessarily to the same degree.” Lopsided or not, BLOW, you’re a proper bisexual, and if you’re in a position to come out to your family and friends, you should. And rest assured, telling people you’re bi doesn’t mean you’re divulging details about your sex life. You’re disclosing your sexual orientation, not detailing your sexual practices. You can tell someone you’re attracted to men and women – at the same time, in your case, if not in the same way – without telling them about the hot bi dudes you and the girlfriend bed together. And if you and the girlfriend are perceived to be monogamous, and you want to keep it that way, you can allow people to continue to make that assumption. Finally, BLOW, most gay men are aware that bi guys usually aren’t romantically interested in other men. And that’s fine – so long as hetero-romantic bi guys don’t mislead us, most gay men are down to fuck. (And gay men who won’t date homo-romantic or bi-romantic men? You guys are missing out. My friend Eric was a hot, hung, adventurous catch. Congrats, Christian!) And since you’re partnered and presumed to be monogamous, you’re also presumed to be unavailable. But if you’re worried a gay friend might hire a hit man to off the girlfriend so he can have a shot at your heart, come out to him as hetero-romantic at the same time you come out to him as bi.

There’s nothing improper about your bisexuality, BLOW – or Charles M. Blow’s bisexuality, or the bisexuality of other “lopsided” bisexuals. While the idea that bisexuals are equally attracted to men and women sexually and romantically used to be pushed by a lot of bi activists (“I fall in love with people, not genitals!”), it didn’t reflect the lived/fucked/sucked experience of most bisexuals. Like you and Blow (heteroromantic bisexuals), many bisexuals have a strong preference for either women or men as romantic partners. My recently “gay married” bisexual friend Eric, however, is one of those bi-romantic bisexuals. This popular misconception – that bisexuals are indifferent to gender (and more highly evolved than all those genitalobsessed monosexuals) – left many people who were having sex with men and women feeling as if they didn’t have an identity. Not straight, not gay, disqualified from bi. But thanks to bisexuals like Blow coming out and owning their bisexuality and their lopsidedness, a more nuanced and inclusive understanding of bisexuality has taken root. That nuance is reflected in bisexual activist Robyn Ochs’ definition of bisexuality: “I call myself bisexual,” Ochs says, “because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted – romantically and/ or sexually – to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the

Bi married man here. I was always out to my wife, but two months ago, I came out to our tight circle of friends. Everyone has been supportive, and I’m glad I took this step. But on three different occasions, my wife’s best friend has loudly asked me whose cock I would most like to suck out of all the other guys at the party. My birthday is coming up, and I don’t want her there. My wife doesn’t want to offend her oldest friend, and she makes excuses like “She was drunk” or “She was only joking.” I told my wife that I wouldn’t be coming to my own birthday party if her friend was invited, but she invited her anyway “by accident.” (She sent the invite via group text.) She doesn’t want to confront or disinvite her friend because that would be awkward. What do we do? Her Unthinking Buddy Bad Yucks

Here’s what you’re going to do, HUBBY: You’re going to ask your wife how she would feel if a friend of yours was sexually harassing her and you made excuses for that friend (“He was drunk!”) and then “accidentally” invited that asshole to her birthday party. Then if she won’t call her friend and retract the invitation, you do it. It will be awkward, that’s for sure, but your wife’s friend shouldn’t be spared that awkwardness. Lord knows she made things awkward for you – don’t hesitate to return the favor.

“LOPSIDERS”

I am a 23-year-old bisexual woman and I have two questions for you. No. 1: Is it possible to fall in love differently with women than with men? I think I am bisexual because I have been in love with some women, despite never getting past a kiss. What I find strange is that whereas with men I feel immediate attraction, with women the attraction rises after a deep friendship is formed. No. 2: Is it possible that I was in love with two different people at the same time? I always thought that I could be in love with only one person at a time, but during that short span, I was in love with both a guy who made me suffer and my best friend, a woman, who helped me with that guy. After I found a new boyfriend, I stopped thinking about anyone else because our relationship is closed. But I don’t know if that’s just because I avoid thinking about others or because I wasn’t really in love with the two people (despite my surprisingly real heartbreak). Bisexual In Need And Inquiring Finally No. 1: See my response to BLOW, above. No. 2: A person can love more than one parent, more than one child, more than one sibling, more than one set of tit clamps and more than one romantic partner. Telling people they can feel romantic love for only one person at a time isn’t just stupid, it’s harmful. Let’s say Bill is partnered with Ted, and Bill believes romantic attraction/love is a one-at-a-time phenomenon because that’s what he was told. Now let’s say Bill develops a crush on Sandra. If Bill doesn’t question the one-at-a-time bullshit he was taught to believe about romantic love, Bill is highly likely to think, “Well, I must not be in love with Ted anymore, otherwise I couldn’t feel this way about Sandra,” and then he may dump tried-and-true Ted for shiny-and-new Sandra. I’m not arguing that everyone should be poly – most people want only one partner at a time, and that’s fine. But telling people they can’t experience romantic attraction or romantic love for more than one person at a time sets long-term relationships up for failure. Because while stable, lasting love feels amazing, it’s less intoxicating than shiny, new, cum-drunk love. And while almost all stable, lasting loves were shiny, new, cum-drunk loves early on, very few new loves become lasting loves. If we don’t want people tossing lasting love overboard every time they develop feelings for someone new, people need to know that, yes, you can be in love with two different people at the same time.
