Readers react to the June 14, 2017, issue. In the June 14 edition of “Informed Dissent,” Jeffrey Billman’s biweekly news column, Billman wrote about Sen. Marco Rubio’s weathervane-style principles, opining that “it must be hard for Florida’s junior senator to see with his head so firmly planted inside Trump’s ass.” @Don Phelps Lil Marco is never quite sure how he feels about Trump, or anything else for that matter. Does he support Trump or no? Is he staying in politics or no? The little man stands for nothing but himself.

@April Bender Rodak I’m not following you to see anything political! Can it or I’m out! [Ed. note: April, we suggest not reading political columns if you don’t enjoy “anything political.”] Reporter Monivette Cordeiro shared the results of the city’s search for a new Orlando flag, weighing designs submitted by citizens in a contest. @Jay Mellon Get a REAL designer! Who thought public submissions were the way to go? There’s a reason people get paid to do graphic design for a living, they’re good at it. This is soooooo bad!

@Travis Karcher If Trump got anything right during his campaign it was giving Rubio the “little Marco” moniker. Rubio is a true republican boot lick. Almost worse than our governor.

@Jonathan Jimenez One of the major tenets of a well designed flag is that it should be so simple a child could easily draw it. This is so choppy and cluttered.

@Rich Heideman Rubio only cares about himself. Did his presidential run not teach us anything? Did he show up for votes? No! Put himself before our state.

@Cristina Parson It sort of reminds me of a pineapple – and as the symbol for hospitality, I guess that is okay. Would seeing that make me think of Orlando? Not really. <shrug>

Gov. Rick Scott signs schools bill giving $419 million to charter schools: Giving a figurative middle finger to all those public school teachers still buying their students’ school supplies, Scott signed a controversial education bill that provides $419 million to encourage charter schools to locate near struggling traditional public schools. The bill also provides more services for students at struggling schools, teacher bonuses, education services funding for children with disabilities, daily recess for elementary students and a scaling-back on standardized testing. The effort to privatize Florida’s public education system also includes a measure that allows charter schools access to school construction funding paid for by local property owners, though taxpayers won’t own the buildings.

Disney will build a sculpture in honor of toddler killed by gator:

The 22-year-old Orlando City Soccer Club forward was arrested Thursday after driving the wrong way down Orange Avenue. A Florida Highway Patrol report says Larin had almost crashed into another car head-on when troopers stopped him after leaving Club Ono around 2:30 a.m. The soccer player told law enforcement officials he had “two or three vodka Red Bulls” after blowing a .179 and a .182 during field sobriety tests. Orlando City head coach Jason Kreis said in a statement that while the team was “disappointed” in Larin’s actions, they will be supportive as he goes through the league’s substance abuse program. Larin will not be able to participate in games or team activities until he finishes the program.

Walt Disney World announced plans to build a lighthouse sculpture in an undisclosed location of its theme park in honor of Lane Thomas Graves, the 2-yearold boy killed by an alligator while staying at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa last year. The lighthouse is a symbol of the Lane Thomas Foundation, which was started by the toddler’s parents in honor of their son.

75-year-old inmate at Orange County jail found to have died from use of force: Last November, William Howard was being moved to a psychiatric observation cell when correctional officers did a “takedown” on the 75-year-old man that caused neck fractures, and ultimately, his death. One nurse was fired for not properly treating Howard after the incident. The jail is still under an internal investigation, though the Orange-Osceola State Attorney’s Office did review the use of force and determined no criminal charges would be filed against the officers. mcordeiro@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

Lynxed in. The benefits and struggles of riding Central Florida’s better-than-nothing public bus system

PHOTOS OF LYNX RIDERS BY JOEY ROULETTE

BY M ON I V E TTE CO R DE I R O

hree hours before his shift starts at a hotel near Disney Springs, Daniel Paredes hops on the Lynx bus 56 headed to Magic Kingdom, earphones already in and a book in hand as he heads toward the back. The 24-year-old has been taking the bus from Kissimmee to the Radisson Hotel in Lake Buena Vista for two weeks since his car broke down. At the Radisson, he works in the hot laundry room, washing and folding all day – towels are the easiest to do, he says, while sheets are the toughest. To be on time for his shift at 3 p.m., Paredes says he wakes up at 9 a.m. to start fixing his meals. By noon, he’s in his black uniform, standing outside in the hot sun as he waits for the 56 bus link at the Columbia Avenue stop. After getting to Magic Kingdom, he takes the 50 bus link on a curving path toward Disney

Springs. The bus leaves him near a Burger King on State Road 535, where he walks a quarter-mile to his job in the heart of the tourism industry. In total, his trip to work takes about two hours. “They have good timing,” Paredes says. “It’s a good service for those people who don’t have a car. It’s worth it.” When his shift ends at 11 p.m., Paredes can’t go the same way home because the buses aren’t running anymore. So instead, he pays an Uber driver about $15 to take him back home to Kissimmee, a 25-minute drive. Coupled with the $2.25 he pays every day for an all-day bus pass, Paredes spends more than $17 a day to get to his job. Over a week, that’s about $86 spent on transportation out of his small paycheck. “Yeah,” he laughs. “I need my car. But I appreciate it. It’s still a good service.” orlandoweekly.com

Paredes is one of thousands of everyday riders in the Orlando and Central Florida area who use the 300-bus Lynx public transit system run by the Central Florida Regional Transportation Authority. Serving a population of 1.8 million in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, the agency provides more than 85,000 rides every weekday, for a total of 27 million passenger trips in fiscal year 2016. While many appreciate the service, riders and transportation advocates say rides to work or school can take hours, with very little service in Orlando’s outlying areas or after a certain time of day. Advocates say when they ask transportation officials for more routes, better bus shelters and longer service hours, the answers always circle back to securing more funding for a system CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

that already has a budget of almost $130 million. Tiffany Namey is one of those advocates. Namey, chair of the Orange County Democratic Disability Caucus, has epilepsy and can’t drive because of the danger of having a seizure. Her father was her primary caregiver and used to drive her places, but after his death, she was left without a way to get around. She doesn’t qualify for the door-todoor Access Lynx van service, so she has to take the bus to Barry University and other meetings. Most days, she leaves her home in Winter Park four hours before she has to be on campus, just in case one bus runs late on her two-hour ride. It can be a stressful journey that sometimes includes getting soaked by rain because of inadequate bus shelters, Namey says, not to mention her

or Washington, D.C. – there’s less drivers on the road and less traffic if more people use the public transportation system. We’re well on our way to having terrible traffic problems like Atlanta or Los Angeles if we don’t do something.” Lynx CEO Edward Johnson has heard similar complaints before. He says he doesn’t disagree with the sentiments, but practicality does prohibit some of the requests. “For some areas within our regions, traditional ways of providing public transit are not a solution,” he says. “Many of our communities are set off from major thoroughfares and the number of potential customers tends to diminish as you try to go through individual neighborhoods. We try to direct our services along major roads with bigger passenger densities as well as employment locations.” Johnson says Lynx has not talked about

pink headphones and an even brighter pink tank top, he gets on the bus to catch another bus to finally arrive at his job as a chef at Applebee’s on International Drive for the night shift. Sometimes, the buses are so full during the tourist season, Snay says that he’s had to call and tell his bosses that

fear of being assaulted. “I shied away from public transportation for a long time because I was afraid I was going to have a seizure at a bus stop and get hit by a car,” she says. “But when my dad passed away, I had no choice but to learn how to take the bus. I purchased one of those emergency buttons with the GPS monitor that you pay monthly for in order to make my mom feel better.” Namey says state transportation officials have told her and other advocates that additional funding for Lynx has to come from alternative sources, ranging from a half-penny county-wide tax to toll money. Almost half of Lynx’s current budget is funded by Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties, plus the city of Orlando. Funds from fares, advertising, contract services, interest and other income accounts for about 27 percent of the budget, while the rest comes from state and federal funding. “I think our leaders on both sides of the aisle need to be open to ideas of dedicated funding sources,” she says. “Nobody’s ever bothered to get it done, and in the meantime, people suffer. Look at where they have the best services – cities like New York 10

what alternative sources of funding are available, but has commissioned a visioning plan to see how the agency can provide more premium services and a route optimization study to see how Lynx can take existing sources and deliver better services with what it has now. The mass transit system has also rolled out several technological updates, including providing free WiFi on its buses and creating a yet-to-bereleased mobile application that allows you to see where the buses are in real time and pay fares through your phone. Johnson, who’s been living in the area for almost 18 years, says Central Florida is no different than other communities who don’t have enough public transit but also don’t have the resources to add more services. “I will say many communities around the country envision having what Central Florida has,” he says. “When I started working in Atlanta with the transit agency, I heard the same thing, that the system wasn’t adequate enough. Certainly we want more and we need to look forward on how we can continue to enhance what we have, which is a good system. Can we do more and be better? Absolutely. But we need to ●

“At 4:30 in the morning, you would be amazed at the number of people who are there with their kids in the downtown terminal because they have to take their children to day care,” he says. “I try to think about that and get stakeholders to ride early and see what our passengers go through.” Denise Diaz, executive director of Central Florida Jobs With Justice, has heard about many of those struggles. Back when there was a transit organizing group in Orlando, members recorded stories of workers who sometimes missed buses and were forced to sleep at their jobs or pleaded with bus drivers to let a co-worker on a bus at capacity because that person would be fired for missing another day of work. “I don’t know how people can really depend on this service as their means of getting to work,” she says. “It’s definitely not reliable transit. I think Central Florida leaders really just need the courage to take the steps needed so we have a fully funded transit system. Sometimes, they’re disconnected from the everyday struggles of someone who has to work and risk losing their job on public transportation.” Back in Kissimmee, Randy Snay, 51, boards the 56 bus with his bike. Wearing

he will be late. When he gets out at 2 a.m., buses aren’t running back to his home, so he rides his bike back two hours, often listening to classic rock. “If they extend the times, good. If not, I’ll ride my bike,” he says. “But I think a lot of people would love for them to extend how long the bus runs.” Rhyshelle Scott, 26, gives a similar suggestion while she waits for her bus outside the intermodal station in downtown Kissimmee for a trip to the grocery store. Like Paredes, Scott’s car broke down, so she’s been forced to take the bus again, which she doesn’t like doing because Lynx is often late. When she didn’t have a car, she would have to catch a ride on the bus all the way up to Universal Orlando for work. Getting back home late at night was hard, though – most times, she would have to find a friend to give her a ride because taking a taxi back to Kissimmee was expensive. “Some of the buses need to run later,” she says. “A lot of people can’t make it to the last bus. One time, I had to sleep at Universal because I missed it. I slept in the break room on a couch. I had no way home. I had no other choice.” feedback@orlandoweekly.com

The peculiar and nonchalant balance in which seemingly random arrangements reveal, upon examination, a perfectly inevitable interior harmony is the basis of Eggleston’s fandom, who circulate the (apparently true) legend that “Bill just shoots one.” No one would compare his work product to Henri “The Decisive Moment” Cartier-Bresson’s, yet Eggleston achieves the same shootfrom-the-hip perfection, eccentric though his choices of subject may seem.

BY SETH KUBERSKY KRAKEN UNLEASHED AT SEAWORLD | PHOTO BY SETH KUBERSKY

From the virtual banshee flights

in Animal Kingdom’s Avatar expansion to the virtual line service employed at Volcano Bay, the V-word has become the hottest buzzword in the theme park industry. But while Disney and Universal were unleashing their new virtual offerings last month, SeaWorld was virtually silent. Then, last week, SeaWorld climbed aboard Orlando’s virtual bandwagon with Kraken Unleashed, which fulfills the trend from two angles at once by introducing both the park’s first virtual reality roller coaster and its first virtual queuing system. From the Virtuality arcade machines of the 1990s to the Aladdin magic carpet simulator at the soon-to-be-extinct Disney Quest, I’ve always been first in line to try the latest virtual reality gadget, though few have fulfilled their promise. Recent IAAPA conventions have given me the opportunity to sample nearly every VR variation on the market – including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Hololens – and while each has issues, I’ve come to love Mack’s GearVRbased interactive virtual reality option on Fun Spot’s Freedom Flyer coaster. Naturally, I was eager for the opportunity to attend a pre-opening media preview of Kraken Unleashed so I could ride SeaWorld’s first-rate floorless Bolliger & Mabillard with a cutting-edge VR upgrade. However, after four back-to-back rides, I came away with a mild headache and major mixed feelings. The revamped ride is simultaneously a technical triumph, a narrative near-miss and an operational apocalypse. I entered the park an advocate of implementing VR inside theme parks, and exited unsure if we shouldn’t just shelve the whole concept for another decade. When reimagining Kraken with VR, SeaWorld tied its story into the neighboring Journey to Atlantis boat ride (which recently had its cheesy storyline and special effects removed), recasting the coaster as a scientific submarine that discovers the lost city. While it’s a clever concept, they

SeaWorld climbed aboard Orlando’s virtual bandwagon with Kraken Unleashed, which introduces both the park’s first virtual reality roller coaster and its first virtual queuing system. haven’t invested enough to execute the idea immersively. Kraken’s queue lost its eel eggs and was only given a hurried-looking coat of paint and a few cute posters in compensation; the results don’t remotely resemble the Seabase Alpha-inspired environment you see inside the headset. Speaking of headsets, while SeaWorld experience design manager Erik Essig describes Kraken’s VR as “completely bespoke … unique and custom to us,” they appear to be based on Chinese-made Pico displays. The image was distractingly grainy with blocky pixels, and despite focusing the device my peripheral view was badly blurred, making for a realistic glaucoma simulation. Additionally, the heavy headset’s earphones were awkward to adjust; on my first ride, I heard none of the music or dialogue. But the VR’s biggest flaw is frame rate. A first-person video needs to maintain a minimum of 60 frames per second for a smooth experience, but Kraken’s visuals stutter along at 30 fps or less. On the plus side, the pre-rendered graphics are specifically synchronized with each seat, so I only got eyestrain, not motion sickness. Once your VR gear is finally good to go, the virtual vessel around you vanishes (for no apparent reason) as you dive down through a moon pool into the digital ocean. You follow a couple of companions into an underwater fissure and are pursued by a

supersized squid through watery ruins. The graphics are acceptable and the building blocks of a story are there, but the objective is murky and the ending is anticlimactic. More crucially, by obscuring its real-life 149-foot height with VR scenery, Kraken Unleashed undermines the coaster’s inherent intensity. While Freedom Flyer’s VR makes that modest non-looping coaster feel far taller and faster, Kraken’s VR seems to shrink its stature. Luckily, after the VR gimmick wears off you’re still allowed to ride without the headset, but you’ll have to wait with everyone else. Unfortunately, that wait is ultimately Kraken Unleashed’s Achilles’ heel. Every headset must be disinfected and readjusted between riders, which requires an employee for each of the train’s eight rows. Despite expending so much labor, Kraken Unleashed dispatched just up to 32 riders every six to eight minutes during my visit. Even if they improve to three-minute dispatches, that’s only 640 guests per hour; typical headliners handle 1,500 and up each hour. SeaWorld intends to manage the attraction’s limited capacity with return times through Spot Saver, their new free timed virtual queue service, but opening weekend still saw posted wait times of a whopping eight and a half hours. Kraken Unleashed comes at a key time for SeaWorld, whose attendance plunged by nearly 8 percent last year, according to the newly released TEA/AECOM report. But while media focus is on an attraction that can only serve a tiny sliver of the park’s audience, attention should be paid to Electric Ocean, a summer evening event that creative director Steve Welch describes as “a family-friendly EDM festival” inspired by Electric Daisy Carnival, accompanied by a fireworks-and-fountains spectacle that rivals Epcot’s Illuminations. Electric Ocean could become a permanent addition to SeaWorld Orlando, but don’t be shocked if Unleashed is uninstalled from Kraken within a year. skubersky@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

GAVIOTA SEAFOOD & FINE PERUVIAN CUISINE

Gaviota brings mighty fine Peruvian cuisine to a revolving-door location in Thornton Park. Starters like anticuchos (grilled beef hearts) and ceviche of grouper impress as much as superb lomo saltado and rice dishes like arroz con pato (duck) and arroz con mariscos (fresh seafood). Pisco sours here make ideal aperitifs, while creamy desserts like tres leches de lúcuma and suspiro de limeña are the way to end. Servers are bow-tied and knowledgable. Closed Tuesdays. 100 S. Eola Drive, 407-4284682; $$

MILLENIA 106

A focused menu of local, seasonal fare peppered with Portuguese and Brazilian flavors allows journeyman chef Bruno Fonseca to showcase his personal style and brilliant technique. Dishes, for the most part, are creative yet approachable – be it a magnificent serving of simply grilled royal red shrimp with “punched” potatoes, or golden tile crested with fennel-citrus-blueberry salad served over farro verde. If you’re up for a fancified sharing plate, the tuna tartare with a grating of preserved lemon and cured yolk sided with Aleppo-peppered pork rinds over an avocado puree (whew) will do just fine. Closed Sundays and Mondays. 4104 Millenia Blvd., 407-9306206; $$

LA MERCE RESTAURANT & MARKET A seafood-leaning menu at this Spanish resto off Park Avenue shows potential, but prices may be scaring off customers who’ll never get to try their excellent black seafood paella (with squid ink), octopus carpaccio, or grouper with clams. A proper-good flan will please the custard set, and service is as friendly as can be. Closed Mondays. 155 E. Morse Blvd., Winter Park, 321-295-7611; $$$$

BAD AS’S SANDWICH

This Milk District sandwich joint gives lunch reason to live, thanks to chefowner John Collazo’s mighty fine sammies. Most are served on a French roll, though the El Anormal #3 with adobo-

roasted pork and peppery cantimpalo sausage gooeyed up with chipotle jack cheese comes served on soft, subtly sweet egg bread. Simpler sandwiches, like the Mafioso with thinly shaved beef and the Ninja with crispy fried pork belly, shouldn’t be overlooked. Closed Sundays. 207 N. Primrose Drive, 407-757-7191; $

FIREFLY KITCHEN & BAR

The former Taps in Winter Park Village has transformed into Firefly, with a still-respectable list of brews as well as 48 wines available via dispensers. The atmosphere is damn fun, but the menu of burgers, flatbreads and Southern fare needs a bit of work. Glimmers of hope come from the kitchen in the fried chicken, a classic poutine with a peppery gravy, and desserts fashioned from recipes of the owner’s grandmother – the pecan pie and moonshine cake in particular. Open daily. 480 N. Orlando Ave., Winter Park, 407-677-5000; $$

REEL FISH COASTAL KITCHEN & BAR

Steadily improving fish house in the former Ravenous Pig space has a lot going for it, notably the owner’s zeal to make the venture a success. Also successful: a bracing ceviche of shark, snapper and hogfish; panko-breaded roasted oysters; and a quartet of fried green tomatoes atop zesty roasted pepper vinaigrette. There’s plenty of fried goodness for the fish camp lover in you, and if the whole roasted yellowtail snapper is available, get it. Closed Mondays. 1234 N. Orange Ave., Winter Park, 407-543-3474; $$$

LUKE’S KITCHEN AND BAR

There’s nothing novel at James Beard Award nominee Brandon McGlamery’s Maitland resto, but there’s plenty good – from the design to the cocktail program to such dishes as diver scallop ceviche, flavorful bone-in ribeye, and stellar swordfish. Meats like to get plonked atop starches and veggies here, BTW. More goodness: peppery (though expensive) crab cake and the au poivre burger, which is our new favorite. Open daily. 640 S.

Brisket, chorizo and chicken tinga tacos are twice-tortillaed in proper fashion. Vegan (sautéed hibiscus taco) and vegetarian options (squash blossom quesadilla; vegetable tinga) will please the meatless crowd. Desserts like chocoflan and Key lime pie with toasted meringue are more than just mere afterthoughts. Closed Sundays. 2103 W. Fairbanks Ave., Winter Park, 407-545-5998; $ n

Transformers: The Last Knight

BY ST EVE SCHNEID ER By Hollywood’s curious metric, we’re about halfway through the summer. And so far, it’s mostly been a parade of failures that makes the Trail of Tears look like a fun run. For every Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, there’s been a Mummy, a Baywatch and a … what was it called again? Alien: Covenant? (That was a thing, right?) Oh, and forget the PR fog that states many of these pictures will technically qualify as hits after the international box office is figured in. A studio exec cares primarily about impressing one key demographic: Beverly Hills hookers. And they tend to only recognize pictures they can actually see in their off hours after the first three days. The MVP of the season is Patty Jenkins, who pulled off a not-so-minor miracle by adapting a DC Comics character into a film that was adored by critics and audiences alike. If we lived in a society that was remotely free of gender bias (SPOILER: We don’t), Jenkins would have awakened on the Monday following Wonder Woman’s debut to find her nightstand creaking under the weight of a stack of offers to shepherd the cinematic adventures of every remaining character in the DC Universe. Instead, all we’ve heard is that she’s a shoo-in to return for Wonder Woman 2. Seriously? The woman essentially raises the Titanic, and her only reward is that she gets to keep her job? Zack Snyder turned out one DC-derived picture after another that managed to underperform commercially while drawing the brickbats of critics and fans – and Warner Bros. responded every time by giving him the keys to an even more sanctified area of their kingdom. When they finally realized he had made them a laughingstock and hauled in Joss Whedon to salvage what he could of Justice League, they still sent out DC Entertainment head Geoff Johns to reassure the public that JL will still be “Zack Snyder’s film.” (This is “reassurance” in the sense that it’s comforting to dwell on the increasing likelihood of President Mike Pence.) I ask you, would any female director with a similar record of failure have been propped up so visibly and strenuously? Trick question: She never would have been allowed to fail more than once. (PG-13)

OPENING WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21: Transformers: The Last Knight As I’ve noted

before in these pages, attempting a marriage of Transformer-brand tech and Arthurian derring-do seems like kind of a self-defeating exercise. “Suits of armor: They’re exactly what meets the eye!” Yet that’s exactly the point of this fifth installment, which purports to reveal the secret history of the Transformers on Earth. And if the medieval setting and trappings didn’t seem discordant enough, there’s also apparently a visit to the World War II era in the offing. In fact, the producers got in hot water for redressing the real-life home of Winston Churchill as Hitler’s headquarters – which, shall we say, did not go down a treat with veterans who were sought for comment by the U.K. tabloids. In his picture’s defense, director Michael Bay said, “People have not been fortunate enough to read the script.” By “people,” I’m assuming he meant the actors, the line producer and the director of photography. (PG-13) ALSO PLAYING: Dean Comedian Demetri Martin’s first directorial outing tells the story of a cartoonist who has to make some major life decisions after his mother passes away. In addition to sitting behind the camera for the first time and performing the starring role, Martin also generated the character’s sketches, which have been hailed as delightful. In fact, the entire picture has been received in some quarters as a fresh and promising take on familiar subject matter; it even won the audience award for best narrative feature at the recent Tribeca Film Festival. So of course its release in Orlando entailed getting dumped with no advance warning on a Friday when six other films were opening. There’s no business like show business, huh, Demetri? (R) The Recall Ostensible star Wesley Snipes is

reportedly absent for long stretches of this low-budget sci-fi thriller, which finds humanity subjected to mass abductions by extraterrestrials. You gotta give it points, though, for titling itself after something that happens to tainted dog food. (R) orlandoweekly.com

POPTOPIA NOW Technicolor club night Kira Kira of J-pop to Orlando BY MATTHEW WELLER

I

t’s hard to ignore the brightly clothed, friendly-faced character that adorns Kira Kira Pop’s event artwork. The bubblegum idol serves as the mascot of the recurring dance night’s brand for good reason; she reflects the high-energy music found in the J-Pop and Idol culture that their audience finds so addicting. Since June 2016, Kira Kira Pop has hosted myriad DJs, Idol acts and pop stars at Bikkuri Sushi on Colonial. Behind this colorful imagery are four co-producers – Sam Harris, Joy LaFleur, Jason Rosa and Cherry Wallflower – working diligently to bring internet artists from all over the country to Orlando. The next Kira Kira Pop arrives Saturday, June 26, and features NYC pop star moistbreezy, DJ Clickbait, Cooliane and Gojii, as well as performances by co-producers Cherry Wallflower and Sam Harris (aka Hoshikuzu Kid). Orlando Weekly caught up with the group at the recent Anime Festival Orlando to talk about the community they’ve fostered and the music they love. “This was all based on a good foundation of cringe,” says Rosa, explaining the origin of KKP and his and Harris’ previous attempts at creating a J-Pop dance event. “It comes with the culture, though. You have to be cheesy enough to be OK with people making fun of themselves.” It’s true. Kira Kira Pop is a self-aware, more palatable version of a subculture

With as much of a workout as

the criminally underutilized disco ball and fog machine got, Will’s Pub was more Will’s Club this week. And I didn’t see a single drum kit the whole time. Where am I?

BLACK MARBLE AND BODY OF LIGHT, WILL’S PUB, JUNE 16

One thing that niche genres often do is place aesthetics like mood or fashion over fundamental songwriting. That’s where Black Marble are distinct. Sure, they pack all the requisite gloom and doom of a card-carrying coldwave act. But unlike the bloodless severity of some of their contemporaries, however, Black Marble feature a notable and – dare I say it – radiant aptitude for melody. Clearly manifest despite its introversion, it’s a quality that glimmers warmly even in the shade of framing and tones that suggest everything opposite. Due precisely to that distinguishing aspect, what can often play as distant and muted on record felt intimate and inviting on stage and at live volume. Moreover, they play songs, not just soundtracks. And under all the dourness de rigueur to their genus, their songs are actually quite lovely and dance with an understated but notable breeze. Given a different treatment, many of them could actually be brilliant indieand twee-pop nuggets. Black Marble are one of the most approachable and affecting coldwave acts on the scene. It’s probably why the musically modest and relatively young band has already built an impressively hefty recording résumé on tastemaker labels like Hardly Art and Ghostly International

With ability and imagination, Lush Agave wielded a minimal setup into a performance of drama and strange enchantment. Add in some physical flair and it’s like watching the live transmission of an alien angel. and is on its way to phenom status. Arizona opener and tourmates Body of Light, however, are much more literal in their synth revivalism. Not to throw too much jaded been-there-done-that shade, but I have lived enough of that era’s sound to have some perspective on both the virtues and folly of the epoch. That their synth-dance is a direct cop of that time isn’t the problem. The sin is simply the mediocrity of their songs. A resurrection of the fairly generic sides of ’80s underground dance, their sound is more an exercise in style than in music.

NAGA AND LUSH AGAVE, WILL’S PUB, JUNE 14

Though they’ve played the definitive International Noise Conference in Miami, Tampa duo Naga exist on a distinctly dreamier frequency than the squelch set. Look no further than the fog deployed at their recent Orlando show for proof of that. More than just effect, though, that very ether is a visual extension of their

sound. Coming from the abstract electronic realm, their music shimmers suspended like neon underwater. But unlike many of their vague, cloud-drifting peers, Naga’s glide features some futuristic R&B contours that lend the micro-genre some sex and personality that it doesn’t always have. It’s a welcome perk that few would argue about. On a vibe that’s inward but perpetual, Naga’s sound is a ghostly tryst of aura and sensuality. Also performing was Orlando’s Lush Agave, the solo vehicle for singer-producer Alisha Erao, whose vision bends classical voice through an experimental electronic lens. Via tracks and layers, she works in minimal arrangements that would otherwise be austere were it not for her rich and often looped vocal work. Regarding those vocals, they’re legit. In many ways, the spare backdrop is the ideal framework for such a deep, trained and nuanced voice so capable of doing the heavy lifting. With ability and imagination, she wielded a very basic setup into a performance of drama and strange enchantment. Add in some physical flair and it’s like watching the live transmission of an alien angel. And it’s why Lush Agave has, of late, become one of the city’s most eminent experimental artists. Between these two acts, Tiger Fawn, and readings by Alexia Clarke (of noted local zine Phosphene Girl), all the channeled feminine energy in the house was fitting for a benefit for Planned Parenthood. Once again, the ladies lead when it comes to rallying for this righteous and necessary but now threatened cause. In this day and age, however, it shouldn’t constantly have to be this way. C’mon fellas, get with it. baolehuu@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

Divine Sisters of Filth

History in a Glass

THEATER

The arrival of John Waters and his Baltimorean Dreamland troupe was a seismic shock to the counterculture of the 1970s. The holy trilogy that was Multiple Maniacs, Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble was nothing less than a declaration of war against straight white suburbia, a Helter Skelter on the sensibilities of the film-going public, all led with impeccable vileness and beauty by the singular Divine. Divine – Waters’ muse, a born superstar, a proto-punk icon and pinnacle of fucked glamor – has only grown in stature and influence since his passing in 1988. In his prime, Divine looked gorgeous and horrifying simultaneously, delivering classic monologues about murder and crime, injecting liquid eyeliner, attacking audiences, killing anyone onscreen unlucky enough to cross him, and doing it all with impeccable style. Divine set a new template for drag performance, where beauty became a deliciously fluid construct, a gauntlet increasingly picked up today by a new generation of drag stars. The riotous Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence here are recast as the Sisters of Divine Filth to pay homage to their patron saint; Sister Ambrosia Discordia, Axel Andrews, April Fresh, Mr. Mrs. Adrien, Broadway Brunch Bunch, and many more are participating in the live ceremony of Observance. We're praying to the saints above (or below, whichever) that fish will be thrown at the audience. – Matthew Moyer 8 p.m. | The Venue, 511 Virginia Drive | 407-412-6895 | thevenueorlando.com | $15

Wimps MUSIC

Fun fact: Swans are not native to Florida. Those white- and black-feathered mascots entertaining passers-by at Lake Eola are all descended from swans imported to the area over the years, a tradition started by Charles Lord in 1910 when he paid for two pairs of swans to be shipped from Connecticut to make their home at Lake Lucerne. One of those swans, Billy, became known as the “Tyrant of Lake Lucerne” for aggressively defending his territory against such threats as schoolchildren and cars. He also reportedly drowned his mate, Sally, by holding her head under water. And he’s the first piece of local history that the Orange County Regional History Center pays tribute to this week with their History in a Glass series. Bartenders from three downtown craft cocktail boozers – the Woods, the Courtesy Bar and Hanson’s Show Repair – create cocktails inspired by the tale of Orlando’s first swan. After you get boozed up, be sure to get a selfie with Billy, seeing as how he now resides in a glass case somewhere in the History Center. – Thaddeus McCollum

Even though the members of Seattle’s Wimps have grownup jobs that limit their touring schedule, and write songs about how great naps are and the frustrations of being the old guy at a party, they’re still undeniably punk, even if it’s only part-time. Wimps' songs are full of humor and nervous, head-bobbing energy, with a deliberately minimal aesthetic that belies the chops of some of their members; singerguitarist Rachel Ratner was in cult speed-punk band Butts, and drummer Dave Ramm played with the Intelligence. This is Wimps’ first time touring the southeast, and it comes with the chance to hear some new material they’ve been working on for their next album. Plus, it’ll likely be the last time they come through until they can save up some PTO. – TM

Haves&Thirds

EVENTS

MUSIC

What’s the next best thing to dressing up for a fancy TEDxOrlando event at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts? Watching it at home in your jammies with a plate of Froot Loops. TEDxOrlando sold out all its tickets to the event, but you can still watch along for free on its Facebook livestream. Whether you’re at home or lucky enough to have purchased a ticket, get ready to enjoy deep discussions from interesting local speakers like Albert Manero, founder of Limbitless Solutions, which makes 3-D printed robotic arms for children in need, or Dr. Joshua Stephany, the Orange County Chief Medical Examiner who helped respond to the Pulse tragedy. There will also be performances by the Orlando Gay Chorus and Studio 18 Musicians. Enjoy from wherever you are! – Monivette Cordeiro 2-6 p.m. | Alexis & Jim Pugh Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S.

Ominous George

In a social media age of constant multi-platform transparency, mystique becomes an ever more rare and valuable commodity in arts and music. A notable exception to this saturation (in our own extended backyard, no less) is enigmatic Florida performing entity Haves&Thirds. The solo vehicle for Tampa-and-proud-of-it resident Todd Lynne, Haves&Thirds has served as a fulcrum for a thriving DIY community that has fostered musicians as diverse as Merchandise, Russian Tsarlag, Naga and i_like_dog_face. And Lynne keeps the DIY torch burning brightly in distinctly analog forms – running the Cephia’s Treat label, recording bands in his house and screenprinting show posters. Often overlooked in this beehive of activity, however, is the sheer crystalline gorgeousness of Haves&Thirds’ music. Imagine an endless loop of all your favorite instrumental hooks from Cure songs, or Stone Roses’ rehearsal outtakes where Ian Brown didn’t bother to show up, or even 4AD-style postpunk reimagined in the swampy haze of a Florida summer. Live, Lynne keeps it cryptic, playing simultaneous synth and guitar all masked and anonymous. Haves&Thirds are joined on Saturday by a who’s-who of outsider creativity, including Tallahassee’s blacksunblackmoon, filmmaker Kate Shults, local dronescaper Temperament (playing hooky from his various metal projects) and the inimitable insult comedian T Func. – MM with blacksunblackmoon, Kate Shults, Temperament, T Func | 9 p.m. | The Falcon, 819 E.

Diana Ross MUSIC

THEATER

We here at Orlando Weekly are among playwright-producer Steve Schneider’s greatest fans. Not just because he has staged Orlando Fringe hits like Escape From Baldwin Park and The Wait List Murders; not only because we stand in awe of his encyclopedic knowledge of KISS minutiae and grammatical rules; but – full disclosure – because he was a major part of OW’s editorial team for several years as film and arts editor and even now still writes a weekly film column for us. But those are the reasons we’d go to the show; why should you? Well, this is a one-night-only remounting from last month’s Fringe festival, at which Ominous George won Patrons’ Pick in their venue and the Critics’ Award for Best Original Score/Music. Schneider says the cabaret-style show is “like a concept album come to life: as if the great producer Bob Ezrin (Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, KISS) had helped a band work up a song cycle for the stage instead of the recording studio.” And as well as a snappy local beer list, Maxine’s is one of the most picturesque cafés in town. This might be the most Orlando-in-the-know evening you’ll ever experience. – Jessica Bryce Young 7 p.m. | Maxine’s on Shine, 337 Shine Ave. | ominousgeorge.tix.com | $10

Diana Ross is one of the few performers living today who require very little in the way of introduction or historical overview – everyone can reflexively sing the chorus of at least two of her hits – while at the same time it’s very much worth outlining the chameleonic career of one of the great, versatile voices of American popular music. With an almost (pre?) Bowie-esque flair for reinvention, Ross has done it all: girl-group innovator as leader of the Supremes (’60s), electrodisco diva with the smoldering “Love Hangover” (’70s), the total liberation heraldry of “I’m Coming Out” (’80s) and so on. Not to mention Mahogany and the goddamn perfect The Wiz. Ross has nothing to promote – other than her regal self – but she has dubbed this the “In the Name of Love” tour because, well, why the hell not? Get ready to breathe deeply of the essence of pop royalty and be drowned in a tidal wave of hits that stretches across decades. – MM with Rhonda Ross | 7:30 p.m. | Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $49.50-$129.50

Bite Night EVENTS

The City Beautiful is brimming with creatively wholesome restaurants, and Orlando Weekly has dedicated the month of June to the most mouth-watering establishments. Bite30 is a 30-day ode to Orlando’s best restaurants, and there’s only one way to end it: with a giant celebration where you can grab a taste from 20 Orlando restaurants all in one place. Experience bites from Artisan’s Table, Seasons 52, 4 Rivers Smokehouse, the brand-new Stubborn Mule and more. VIP tickets get you into the ballroom an hour early so you can get even more time to stuff your face and throw back some drinks at the open bar. Add a silent auction benefiting the Edible Education Experience and some live entertainment, and you’ve got a full plate that’ll satisfy a little more than your hunger. – Kristin James 7-10 p.m. | The Orchid Garden, 122 W.

B Y D A N S AVA G E

I am a 34-year-old straight woman. I’m monogamous and have an avoidant attachment style. I’ve been seeing a guy I really like. He’s just my type, the kind of person I’ve been looking for my whole life. Thing is, he’s in an open relationship with someone he’s been with for most of his adult life. He was sneaky – he didn’t reveal he was in an open relationship until the second date, but by then I was infatuated and felt like I wasn’t in control of my actions. So what I’ve learned is that poly couples often seek out others to create NRE or “new relationship energy,” which may help save their relationship in the long run. I was deeply hurt to learn about NRE. What about the people who are dragged into a situation by some charmer in an attempt to breathe new life into a stale relationship? I feel like no one cares about the people on the side, the ones who might be perceived to be cheating with someone’s partner, as some sort of competitor, a hussy. How can I reconcile the fact that I’ve fallen for someone who sees me as a tool to be discarded once the excitement wears off? I know we all have a choice, but we also know what it’s like to be infatuated by someone who seems perfect. I feel like such a loser. Sobbing Here And Making Errors “One of life’s hardest lessons is this: Two people can be absolutely crazy in love with each other and still not be good partners,” says Franklin Veaux, co-author of More Than Two: A Practical Guide to Ethical Polyamory (morethantwo.com). “If you’re monogamous and you meet someone you’re completely smitten with who isn’t, the best thing to do is acknowledge that you’re incompatible and go your separate ways. It hurts and it sucks, but there it is.” This perfect, sneaky guy who makes you feel like a loser and a hussy? He told you he was in an open relationship on your second date. You knew he wasn’t “your type” or “perfect” for you the second time you laid eyes on him, SHAME, and you needed to go your separate ways at that point. And I’m not buying your excuse (“I was too infatuated!”). What if he had revealed that he was a recreational bed wetter? Or a serial killer? Or Jeffrey Lord? Or all of the above? Surely you would’ve dumped him then. Veaux advocates ethical polyamory – it’s right there in the title of his book – and he thinks this guy did you wrong by not disclosing his partner’s existence right away. “Making a nonmonogamous relationship work requires a commitment to communication, honesty and transparency,” Veaux says. “Concealing the fact that you’re in a relationship is a big violation of all three, and no good will come of it.” I have a slightly different take. Straight women in open relationships have an easier

46

time finding men willing to fuck and/or date them; their straight male counterparts have a much more difficult time. Stigma and double standards are at work here – she’s sexually adventurous; he’s a cheating bastard – and waiting to disclose the fact that you’re poly (or kinky or HIV-positive or a cammer) is a reaction to/work-around for that. It’s also a violation of poly best practices, like Veaux says, but the stigma is a violation, too. Waiting to disclose your partner, kink, HIV status, etc., can prompt the other person to weigh their assumptions and prejudices about poly/kinky/poz people against the living, breathing person they’ve come to know. Still, disclosure needs to come early – within a date or two, certainly before anyone gets fucked – so the other person can bail if poly/ kinky/poz is a deal-breaker. As for that new relationship energy stuff … “There are, in truth, polyamorous people who are NRE junkies,” Veaux says, “men and women who chase new relationships in pursuit of that emotional fix. They’re not very common, but they do exist, and alas, they tend to leave a lot of destruction in their wake.” But your assumptions about how NRE works are wrong, SHAME. Seeing your partner in the throes of NRE doesn’t bring the primary couple closer together; it often places a strain on the relationship. Opening up a relationship can certainly save it (if openness is a better fit for both partners), but NRE isn’t a log the primary couple tosses on the emotional/erotic fire. It’s something a poly person experiences with a new partner, not something a poly person enjoys with an established one. And there are lots of examples of longterm poly relationships out there – established triads, quads, quints – so your assumption about being discarded once NRE wears off is also off, SHAME. There are no guarantees, however. If this guy were single and looking for a monogamous relationship, you could nevertheless discover you’re not right for each other and wind up being discarded or doing the discarding yourself. I’m going to give the final word to our guest expert … “Having an avoidant attachment style complicates things, because one of the things that can go along with avoidant attachment is idealizing partners who are inaccessible or unavailable,” Veaux says. “That can make it harder to let go. But if you’re radically incompatible with the person you love, letting go is likely your only healthy choice. Good luck!” I’m gay and married. My husband regularly messes around with this one guy who treats me like I’m a cuckold. He will send me a pic of my husband sucking his cock, for example, and a text message meant to degrade me. But I’m not a cuckold and I

“SNEAKERS”

don’t find these messages sexy. My husband wants me to play along because it gets this guy off. Advice? Can’t Understand Cuckold Kink It depends, CUCK. If you’re upset by these messages – if they hurt your feelings, are damaging your sexual connection to your husband, are traumatizing – don’t play along. But if you find them silly – if they just make you roll your eyes – then play along. Respond positively/abjectly/insincerely, then delete. Not to please the guy sending the messages (whom you don’t owe anything), but to please your husband (who’ll wind up owing you). I am a straight male grad student in my mid-20s. My girlfriend wants to have sex with another girl in our class. Neither of us have had a threesome before, but both of us are game. Unfortunately, I am not attracted to this girl. When we started dating, my girlfriend told me that she is sexually attracted to women. We agreed to be monogamous except that she could have sex with other women as part of a three-

some with me. She is not hell-bent on having sex with our classmate, but she would like to and says it’s up to me. I don’t want her to suppress her same-sex tendencies, but I am jealous at the thought of her having sex with someone else while I am not participating. What should I do? Feeling Out Moments Orgasmic You should take yes for an answer, FOMO – or take your girlfriend’s willingness to say no to this opportunity for an answer. She’s into this woman but willing to pass on her because you aren’t. There are billions of other women on the planet – some in your immediate vicinity – so you two have lots of other options. Unless you find a reason to object to every woman your girlfriend finds attractive, you aren’t guilty of suppressing her same-sex tendencies.
