IN MEMORIAM: THE ORLANDO 49 Every week between now and the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shootings, Orlando Weekly will profile a person killed on June 12, 2016. This week: Kimberly “KJ” Morris On stage, Kimberly “KJ” Morris used her infectious smile and suave dance moves to give life to “Daddy K,” her magnetic drag king personality. The 37-yearold Connecticut native was performing as Daddy K at Diva’s Nightclub in Northampton, Massachusetts, when she met Allie Thorpe in 2008. “She came alive on stage,” Thorpe says. “She was an incredible performer and dancer. You could feel the love she had for the music and the community.” Juan Anderson-Burgos, another one of Morris’ friends and a drag colleague, described her drag as “bold.” “It’s hard to explain, but she was energetic, expressive, colorful, alive,” he says. “She earned and owned that stage. She was a beautiful spirit.” After moving around in the northeast, Morris settled for some time in Massachusetts and danced with a local troupe called King

St. Boiz, where she also mentored other young performers. In her spare time, Thorpe says Morris liked to play video games, go to arcades, and paint and draw. She was a sharp dresser with a huge sneaker collection, someone Thorpe would frequently go to for fashion advice. “She was a lot of fun,” Thorpe says. “She had a beautiful soul and was very careful about taking care of people and wanting them to know they were important to her. I know I’m not the only person who considered her a best friend, because she had a lot of people that cared about her.” Morris moved to Hawaii to open a Verizon store before leaving for Orlando in April 2016 to take care of her aging mother and grandmother. Thorpe says it was important for Morris to be there for her family. She had recently found work as a bouncer at the gay nightclub Pulse. Her ex-girlfriend Starr Shelton told the Orlando Sentinel that Morris was excited to get more involved in the local LGBTQ community, and her mother Deborah Johnson-Riley said she hadn’t unpacked some of her moving boxes. Two months after moving to Orlando, Morris and 48 other people died at Pulse in a mass shooting. “She left behind a legacy here,” Thorpe says. “Nobody has forgotten her. She’s very much alive in our hearts.”

Aramis Ayala removed from Markeith Loyd case after saying she won’t seek death penalty:

Orange-Osceola State Attorney Aramis Ayala made national news this week after announcing she wouldn’t seek the death penalty in cases under her administration, including the case against Markeith Loyd. Loyd is accused of killing his pregnant ex-girlfriend Sade Dixon and Orlando Police Lt. Debra Clayton. The move outraged many state officials, including Gov. Rick Scott, who removed Ayala from the case, saying it was clear she would “not fight for justice.” Various civil rights and religious leaders, anti-death penalty proponents and murder victims’ mothers spoke at the downtown Orlando court in support of Ayala, including Stephanie Dixon-Daniels, the mother of Loyd’s alleged victim. “With the death penalty, he’s not going to be executed for another 30 to 40 years anyway, but he’s going to continue to have the opinions to drag us back in court and relive this violent, hideous act,” she says. “This monster will die in prison.”

The National Rifle Association-backed measure would shift the burden from defenders to prosecutors in “stand your ground” pre-trial immunity hearings.

As lawmakers battle over the implementation of Amendment 2, medical marijuana patients and advocates say they’re ignoring the will of the voters by creating unnecessary layers of red tape. BY MONI V ET T E COR D EI R O

F

or a long time, Jacel Delgadillo wasn’t sure her son knew who she was. Five-yearold Bruno Stillo began having seizures as a three-monthold infant and soon after was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy. While his family struggled to make sense of his medications, Bruno seized 300 to 400 times a day. The constant epileptic episodes left him unable to walk or talk, and at one point, one of his seizure medications caused drug-induced lupus, his mother says. “I used to always tell everyone I don’t think my son knows I’m his mother,” the Miami mom says. “I didn’t think he had the capacity. But since we started him on cannabis, he’ll sit on my chest and relax, he’s alert to what he sees around him, he can use his finger to get to an app on the iPad. He has a seizure about

once a week now. But now I can see that he knows who I am.” Bruno got his first home delivery of cannabis low in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical that creates a euphoric high, earlier this year from the Winter Garden-based Knox Medical facility after the historic passage of Amendment 2 last November. Seventy-one percent of Florida voters approved the constitutional amendment that expands the state’s medical marijuana program to patients with conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder, cancer, glaucoma, epilepsy, HIV, AIDS, ALS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Bruno is one of 5,525 patients in Florida registered to receive medical marijuana as of March 14, and state Department of Health spokeswoman Mara Gambineri says the office is receiving, on average, about 100 new patients per day. Amendment 2 gave lawmakers and the state health department six months to establish new rules for the medical marijuana system, and nine months to start giving patients their identification cards. But looking at the proposals Florida lawmakers have filed so CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

far, including a measure that would ban smoking and edibles, Delgadillo worries the state will limit how her son can take his medicine. Bruno currently takes about a dozen drops of medical marijuana oil by mouth every day, but Delgadillo wants every option on the table if it offers the possibility to make her son feel better. “Our children are growing, and we don’t know which form of cannabis will be the best for them,” says Delgadillo, who is also an activist with the medical marijuana advocacy group CannaMoms. “Right now he’s taking the oil form, but some adults have to smoke the medication. We need this medicine as a whole and there shouldn’t be exceptions on parts of it. This should be something decided between a doctor and patient, not people making regulations. They don’t really know what we go through.” Lawmakers say they’re keeping patients at the forefront as they draw up rules for this budding industry projected to make $1.6 billion in the next three years, including strict regulations designed to combat recreational use of the drug. But patients and advocates are decrying some of the proposals put forth by Florida legislators, saying they create burdens for sick people and ignore the will of the voters.

S

ince Amendment 2 became law on Jan. 3, health department officials and the Florida Legislature have been scrambling to adjust the regulato-

10

ry framework for medical marijuana that Florida already had to meet the new conditions. The existing program allowed terminal patients to use full-strength marijuana, and authorized patients suffering from chronic seizures, severe muscle spasms or cancer to receive low-THC medical cannabis. Although the state Legislature approved non-euphoric medical marijuana first in 2014, it took about two more years before patients were able to get access, due to lawsuits and administrative red tape regarding which nurseries were allowed to grow and distribute medical marijuana. The first dispensary opened last July in Tallahassee and more have popped up around Florida since then, though many city and county governments, including the city of Orlando and Orange County, have passed moratoriums on opening dispensaries. Currently, the system allows seven nurseries to grow, package and sell marijuana for the entire state, either by home delivery or through dispensaries. And here’s where an already controversial topic gets more convoluted. Right after Amendment 2 went into effect in early January, it wasn’t immediately clear what doctors and patients could legally do under state laws while they waited for the Department of Health to craft new rules. Christian Bax, director of the state Office of Compassionate Use, finally clarified that while health officials created regulations, doctors could decide if they wanted to prescribe marijuana to patients with medical conditions listed in the constitutional amendment after treating them for 90 days.

ORLANDO WEEKLY ● MARCH 22-28, 2017

The health department’s stance sounded pretty flexible, but some, like Jeff Scott, general counsel for the Florida Medical Association, urged doctors to proceed with caution in legally shaky territory, according to the News Service of Florida. “The Florida Department of Health, physicians, dispensing organizations and patients remain bound by existing law and rule,” says Mara Gambineri, spokeswoman for the state Health Department. “The Department is committed to quickly moving through the rulemaking process to create a regulatory structure for Amendment 2. … In partnership with law enforcement, enforcement actions initiated by the department against patients, doctors and businesses will be focused on those operating outside the regulatory structure in Florida law.” After that initial hiccup, the state health department’s rollout of proposed regulations to the public in early February was contentious, to say the least. Health officials had, essentially, adapted the state’s limited medical marijuana program to take in the new patients created under Amendment 2. One of the proposed rules stated only patients with cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, PTSD, ALS, Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis would qualify for medical marijuana; any other debilitating medical conditions that could qualify would be determined by the Florida Board of Medicine. Advocates argued this was against the spirit of Amendment 2, which left that decision up to individual doctors. The state health department also chose not

to expand the number of dispensing organizations in Florida who could produce marijuana or to separate growers from the dispensary process, which Amendment 2 allows. At workshops set up by health officials across the state, raucous, standing-roomonly crowds ripped into the department’s draft rules. Some people wanted the department to end the 90-day waiting period between when doctors first see patients and when they can start recommending medical marijuana. Others, like James Fowler, a St. Cloud patient who spoke at a public meeting in Orlando on Feb. 8, criticized the department for allowing the limited number of dispensing organizations to become monopolies that can control the market and keep prices high. “You’re putting yourselves between my doctor and myself and my medication. That’s wrong,” Fowler said to health department officials. “They’re not going to come down off their prices because we can’t afford anything. … That’s gonna force us to go to illegal means and have to go to the illegal dealers that you guys are trying to combat. All you’re doing, sir, is promoting the illegal activities of the black market with what you’re doing, with your asinine rules and regulations.” Six plans have emerged so far from Florida lawmakers, and while they’re mostly similar, the most controversial plan so far has been filed in the House by state Rep. Ray Rodrigues, R-Estero. The Rodrigues plan, HB 1397, bans smoking, CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

vaping or eating marijuana in commercial food products like brownies or gummies, though vaping would be allowed for terminal patients. (Under current Florida law, “smoking” means burning or igniting a substance and inhaling smoke. That definition does not include the use of a vaporizer.) Medical marijuana patients charged with drug-related crimes would have their registrations immediately suspended. This bill is “out of line” with the constitution and restricts access to medical marijuana even further than the current law, according to Ben Pollara, executive director of Florida for Care and former campaign manager for the effort to legalize medical marijuana in the state. “Everyone’s just asking, ‘How do you consume it?’” Pollara says. “It came as total shock to me, in terms of the restrictions, because they go well beyond what the amendment says, beyond what current

statue says. … It’s totally out of line with how people feel about this issue.” Pollara also criticized the bill’s requirement that medical marijuana be grown, processed and sold by the same dispensing organizations. The measure also proposes adding six more dispensing organization when the state reaches 150,000 medical marijuana patients, five more when there are 200,000 patients, and three more for every 100,000 patients who register. That’s not true to the free-market ideal that Republicans who control the state Legislature have preached in other situations, Pollara argues. “These folks live and breathe the scriptures of the free market,” he says. “This House Speaker, in particular, has preached gospel of ‘we need more transparency,’ that we shouldn’t be in the business of picking winners and losers. I don’t think this qualifies as a free market.” State Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith, an Orlando Democrat who recently proposed a measure to decriminalize small amounts of

recreational marijuana, says the Rodrigues bill treats marijuana “like anthrax.” “It’s unconstitutional,” he says. “It’s just another demonstration how out-of-touch House Republicans are with Floridians. Marijuana is a plant. Tens of thousands of people die from alcohol poisoning and opioid overdoses. No one has ever died from a marijuana overdose, period. I just don’t understand what’s the big deal.” On his end, Rodrigues says the charge he received from House Speaker Richard Corcoran was to write the bill in a way that treats marijuana as medicine and protects Floridians. Critics who think his edibles ban includes marijuana oils, tinctures and pills are making a “ridiculous assertion,” he adds. “Most of the bills proposed prohibit smoking, so it’s a majority opinion,” Rodrigues says. “There’s people who would want to cast this bill in as extreme a light as they possibly can.” The decision to ban edibles came after Andrew Freedman, Colorado’s former marijuana czar, testified in front of the orlandoweekly.com

House Health Quality subcommittee about people overdosing on edibles because it takes more time for them to take effect, and about proper packaging of edibles to keep them away from children. Rodrigues says physicians who are pro-medical marijuana conceded that they don’t support smoking as a vehicle for medical marijuana. The bill also lowers the barriers to entry for doctors wishing to participate in the program and sets up independent labs to test the product. “We have treated this like medicine,” Rodrigues says. “We’re honoring the doctor-patient relationship. We’re not taxing it; we’re not using this as a revenue source. We’re pre-empting local governments so they can’t ban growth of marijuana. … We have a tightly regulated market because that’s what the federal government requires so they don’t pursue enforcement.” Despite Rodrigues’ bill, Pollara says he’s still optimistic about this legislative session. “This bill just came out, so it’s not the end,” he says. “This is a disappointing beginning, but I’m still hopeful we’ll have a good ending to the legislative session and have results that fulfill the will of the people and ultimately, gets some relief to sick and suffering Floridians.” While no other bill has been filed in the House, the most popular proposal in the Senate appears to be the bill filed by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island. SB 406 is similar to the Rodrigues bill in that it allows patients to have a 90-day supply of marijuana (up from a 45-day supply), modestly increases the number of dispensing organizations in a similar way and eliminates the waiting period for patients. But Pollara aligns himself more closely with the bill filed by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, which would scrap the current system and give Florida’s medical marijuana market a libertarian makeover. SB 614 would ax the state’s “cartel system” that allows seven dispensing organizations to dictate the supply and prices by allowing nurseries, processors and dispensaries to operate separately, Brandes says. The bill also allows smaller businesses that aren’t multimillion-dollar companies to participate, he adds. “I think the 71 percent of Floridians who voted for medical marijuana weren’t voting for businesses,” he says. “There were voting for patients. I think my bill is a voice for free markets because it will allow multiple growers, multiple dispensaries, and a number of processors. It changes the whole concept from being vertically integrated, which is where most of the bills are, to horizontally integrated, which means if you’re a good grower, then grow, but you don’t have to do everything else.” The Brandes proposal would allow local governments to ban dispensaries within

their borders, but prohibits similar measures taken against home deliveries. The senator’s bill would also let patients smoke medical marijuana, a stark contrast against the House plan. “[Rodrigues] banned edibles, smokables and vaporizing,” Brandes says. “The joke in our office is the only thing he allows is suppositories.” The House bill could lead to lawsuits, according to Brandes, and is more likely to be ruled unconstitutional under the guidelines in Amendment 2. “I think it’s important that the Legislature understand what the public wants here and what the public intended when they voted for this,” he says. “We had the ultimate poll when we put it on the ballot. Now we have to ask, ‘Well, did you vote for what would be considered some of the most restrictive laws in the country, or did you vote for something other than that?’ And I think they voted to put patients first.”

M

eanwhile, Bruno is learning to crawl. The 5-year-old boy is now starting to learn basic motor skills with a physical therapist and, to the excitement of his family, has started making noises and playing with toys without hurting himself. Delgadillo never thought she would see her son walk on a treadmill or hear his baby babble, but for the first time, it feels like Bruno is just another kid. In a way, it validates these past years of fighting with insurance companies for treatment to keep Bruno alive and of trying to convince the public to vote for the medical marijuana her son needs. “Having to convince people was really sad for me,” she says. “I never imagined myself being involved in politics. I thought if a child got sick, a doctor would decide what the child needs.” Although Bruno lives in Miami, his medical marijuana provider is Knox Medical, a company based out of Orange County started by Knox Nursery, a 23-acre facility in Winter Garden. In a few weeks, Knox will open the first medical marijuana dispensary in Central Florida at 1901 N. Orange Ave., next to White Wolf Cafe in Ivanhoe Village, says Adam Sharon, a spokesperson for the company. The Orlando dispensary is able to open despite a local moratorium because it’s only selling cannabis of the low-THC variety. The company plans to open a dispensary in Gainesville soon and will also debut locations in Lake Worth, Tallahassee and Jacksonville. “A lot of effort has gone into it,” Sharon says. “We’re working with some of the top architects, designers and builders in

the state. You see stories in other places about pot shops on every corner, but that’s not what’s coming to Florida at all. It’s a top-quality medicine that’s being rolled out for the state in a very calibrated, drawn-out process. It’s a brave new world.” Sharon says after more than three years of twists and turns, and in the face of what looks to be more rules, Knox Medical chooses to operate in the now and proceed to provide medical marijuana to patients as the law allows. “We can’t control what may or may not happen, but we can proceed with providing medicine to the community and making it more available,” he says. “When the people who live along North Orange Avenue in the Ivanhoe district learn more about medical marijuana, it’s going to be part of the fabric of the community. Every day, people are going to see parents, teachers, veterans, children and their neighbors coming in and out of these dispensaries. I do feel like we’ll almost have a collective ‘aha’ moment of what dispensaries are, and that will help guide lawmakers and cities to say we can live with this.” For Delgadillo, making sure her son has the best medical marijuana treatment means opening up the market and allowing for different forms of ingestion, depending on what’s suitable for the patient. She has a friend in chemotherapy who will sometimes smoke a joint to ease her pain, and knows a mother who feeds half an edible gummy to her autistic son to help keep him calm. Delgadillo thinks that opening the market to more growers and dispensaries would also significantly lower the prices of medical marijuana. She’s had to pay out-of-pocket for Bruno’s marijuana patient card, for his doctor’s visits and for the low-THC cannabis he needs. “It’s very challenging, especially since insurance doesn’t cover any of it,” she says. “My son doesn’t walk, he’s very heavy right now and I have a herniated disc so I can’t carry him. We’re trying to do fundraisers to raise money for a wheelchair van, so it’s something I know I have to pay for. It’s hard.” Ultimately, Delgadillo wants the state to stop treating her and her child like recreational marijuana users trying to game the system. “If someone wanted to do it for recreation, it’s cheaper on the black market than all the money we spend on getting registered and paying for medicine,” she says. “I really think it should be between a doctor and patient. This is not going to be a CVS or candy in a supermarket where anyone can take it. They’re treating it as something that’s going to kill someone. It’s not.” mcordeiro@orlandoweekly.com

I

saac Lidsky has the sort of CV that gives new meaning to the term “renaissance man.” Start with a stint as a child actor, playing the Screech-alike Weasel on the TV spinoff Saved by the Bell: The New Class. Then take a hard left into studies at Harvard Law. Pursue that thread into clerking duties for Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, followed by membership in a high-powered New York law firm. Finally, hang another tight left into his current gig as CEO of ODC Construction, an Orlando-based firm that performs construction-management services throughout Florida. Still not impressed? Lidsky accomplished most of this while coping with retinitis pigmentosa, an incurable genetic disorder with which he was diagnosed in his early teens, and which left him completely blind by his 20s. Yet far from considering blindness a curse from the gods, Lidsky has come to regard it a positive boon. In fact, he can’t imagine where his life would be today had the loss of his vision not forced him to adopt a deeper way of seeing the world and his position within it. That epiphany and its fruits form the crux of his new book, Eyes Wide Open: Overcoming in our minds, and sometimes Obstacles and Recognizing Opportunities in a wholly imaginary.

My passionate hope, my ambition here construed as an automatic transmission of an immutable is that others will find it useful and valuable in their lives. reality, is actually an active process that’s both subjective In mine, it’s brought me just immeasurable joy and fulfill- and culturally determined. As proof, he offers the example of Mbuti pygmies in the ment and success – success in the way I define success for Democratic Republic of Congo, who have lived their entire myself.” At the heart of Lidsky’s philosophy is the belief that lives in deeply wooded areas and never learned to manage the obstacles we perceive in our way are exaggerated concepts like foreshortening: Upon first exposure to distant

herds of buffalo, they instead perceive tiny insects dancing directly before their eyes. Therefore, if we have to learn how to see literally, we can retrain ourselves to see emotionally and philosophically. So if you’re worried that blindness will leave you unable to work? There are screen readers and other assistive technologies for that. Convinced that your basic surroundings will be impossible to navigate without sight? You’d be surprised how your hearing alone can map a room. Petrified that disability will make you a perpetual charity case unable to start a family of your own? Well, that could just be what Stuart Smalley used to call stinkin’ thinkin’: Lidsky is a husband and father to – count ’em! – four kids. To be fair, he also appears to have lived most of his life with somewhat greater monetary resources to draw upon than we typically associate with the differently abled. One example of “facing fear” he writes of was his decision to accept $350,000 in cash from his mother in order to save ODC, a company he had purchased without knowing the full extent of its financial precariousness. In the book, Lidsky puts such challenges into context by delineating just how comfortable the average American is when compared to the global standard. Within our relative luxury, he seems to argue, even blindness is a first-world problem. And in conversation, he explains that his “eyes wide open” ethos isn’t about disability per se, but rather “a vision or philosophy that generalizes to anyone confronting any challenge. And frankly, independent of confronting challenges, just sort of living life.” So maybe it’s up to the reader to decide how much of an answer Eyes Wide Open provides to one of the key conundrums of our time: Just what do we have a right to be dissatisfied with? How many of our troubles are actually self-created? Conversely, does our desire to believe that every aspect of our life is under our control mask an inability to face unavoidable concepts like failure and sadness? “I think that we assume that we have less control over things than we do,” Lidsky says. But he still distances himself a bit from the excesses of what he calls “positive psychology”: “There’s this notion that happiness is the ultimate goal, the mean, the end, the everything … I am agnostic when it comes to judgments of value. Whatever it is that you want out of life, you’ve got to figure it out for yourself.” No matter your own personal level of optimism, it’s hard to not share his palpable enthusiasm when the discussion turns to the technological advances that are going to make basic, day-to-day living so much easier for most of us in the not-too-distant future – especially in an environment like Orlando, where even simple mobility can be such a challenge to the blind and the sighted alike. “Look at things like Uber,” he says. “Frankly, if I had perfect sight or whatever, would I want to buy a car and pay for insurance, or just use an Uber every time I’m going somewhere? And that’s before we even get to, like, autonomous vehicles, which are coming soon. So I think it’s a golden age for the disabled that we’re living in.” Honestly, you can almost see it.

BY SETH KUBERSKY ALAUNA FRISKICS | PHOTO VIA ORLANDO FRINGE

At the same time that outgoing

Orlando Fringe Festival executive director George Wallace was being honored on the eve of his departure to Indianapolis with a going-away party at the Hammered Lamb, the organization announced that it had found a new leader. But the new face fronting the Fringe will be very familiar to longtime followers of the Fest, because although new executive director Alauna Friskics will take several months to transition into her new position, she’s already been part of the festival for nearly 20 years.

‘FRINGE HAS GROWN ON EVERY LEVEL’

“I first came to the Fringe for spring break my senior year of college,” Friskics tells me in an exclusive interview about her new job. “My dad and stepmom had moved to Orlando and discovered this little theater festival they thought I would like. My dad was the original beer tent manager. That year, in 1998, I volunteered hundreds of hours. I was hooked.” In the years that followed, Friskics served as a volunteer coordinator, producer for Mission IMPROVable and other shows, and was financial manager/co-producer of the Fringe in 2002. “One year, I volunteered to make the awards, so I ordered a lot of 100 used bowling trophies from eBay,” Friskics recalls. “I took them all apart and reconstructed them with Barbie heads, doll clothes, glitter, pipe cleaners, etc. Each trophy was personalized to the category.” Friskics comes to the Fringe from the Garden Theatre, which she has guided since its renovation and reopening, and she says the choice to leave wasn’t easy. “The Garden Theatre has been a part of my core identity for over a decade. Choosing to leave an organization that I built from the ground up is one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make,” she says.

New Orlando Fringe executive director Alauna Friskics will take months to transition in, but she’s been part of the festival for nearly 20 years. Friskics leaves behind a now-thriving arts presence in Winter Garden, and an organization that she helped grow to a $1.4 million budget in less than nine years. “I am proud of taking artistic risks, and having a brave and capable board of directors who support and love this theater. I am proud that the Garden was the economic catalyst for the rebirth of this historic downtown.” As Friskics steps into departing Fringe executive director George Wallace’s shoes, she has only praise for her predecessor: “As a friend and colleague, I have known for a long time that George Wallace is a talented and capable arts leader. I believe George has grown the organization in all the right places.” Likewise, she’s looking forward to working alongside her friend (and former roommate), artistic director Mike Marinaccio, she says. “Mike and I have been great friends for a long time. Working with someone I know so well will allow us to jump right in. We already have a communication shorthand in place. We respect and know each other. It means we can hit the ground running and not have to waste time getting to know each others’ nuances.” Looking to the future, Friskics has only excitement to share. “When I was involved in the past, Fringe was a completely differ-

ent organization. It’s grown on every level. That is what excites me,” she says. “I have a lot of listening and learning to do from the board, staff, volunteers, audiences, and the community. I am sure a million new ideas will pop up. It’s just a question of harnessing those ideas and creating a solid plan that is right for the organization.” When asked about her long-term objectives as Fringe executive director, Friskics observes, “There are many similarities in the Garden and Fringe. Both nonprofits have experienced tremendous and rapid growth, and are both positioned for continued success.” But she says her first order of business will be strictly by-the-numbers: “For anyone who knows me, they know I am most excited to pore over the finances. Nerdy, but true.”

SHORT TAKES

It isn’t often I’m able to see the same show twice, but I happily made a return visit to Theater on the Edge for Stephen Belber’s Tape. In my online review, I praised director Pam Harbaugh and her cast for “presenting a tightly crafted take on the material that sheds new light on a trio of otherwise unlikable characters,” and moderating the post-show discussion after my second viewing only deepened my appreciation of the production. Luckily, they’ve extended their sold-out run through March 26, so you have one last weekend to catch it; order tickets at theaterontheedge.org. Orlando Shakespeare Theater announced that New York actress Caralyn Kozlowski will join Star Trek: The Next Generation star Michael Dorn in the title roles of Antony and Cleopatra, opening March 29. The former Klingon will headline “An Evening With Michael Dorn” at the Shakes on April 9; limited tickets are still available at orlandoshakes.org. skubersky@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

TR Fire Grill With a sleek indoor dining area and a chilled-out outdoor patio, TR Fire Grill can match your mood no matter what you’re looking for. You can easily tell from the interior decor that no space is wasted at TR Fire Grill. The inside screams sophistication, but it definitely gets cozy in the Chef’s Corner—an intimate section where guests can learn from Chef Bob Gallagher. However, if you’re looking for a bright, bustling brunch, you might want to grab a table on the patio. Munching on brunch while overlooking the vast brick patio and fountains of the upscale Ravaudage is never a bad way to spend a Sunday. TR Fire Grill is also mere steps away from the brand new Nordstrom Rack and just down the street from Winter Park Village, making this locale perfect for brunch and shopping… or a movie (in a recliner), you know, if that brunch put you in a food coma. Mom and dad would love this spot for its sophisticated vibe, but the Endless Mimosas make the TR Fire Grill experience equally appealing for a booth full of

friends. It’s also dog-friendly on the patio, so even if you’re brunching alone, you can always opt to bring your best friend. Like many true brunch spots, TR Fire Grill doesn’t play games when it comes to boozy libations. They give brunch mainstays like the mimosa a shot of adrenaline with unique juice flavors such as Orange Mango and Honey Tangerine, or you can go with classic Orange Juice if that’s how you like it. For just a few dollars extra, you can kick things up a notch with Endless Mimosas. Of the three mimosa flavors, the Honey Tangerine rules supreme. Each sip is unmistakably sweet, but its smoothness is what keeps us coming back for more. Another shining star on the drink menu is the Pressed Sangria for 2, in which local fruits are immersed in amaretto and Malbec. To add just a little something extra to the experience, this smooth sangria comes in a French press accompanied by two glasses filled with ice. A good drink menu calls for an equally good food menu, and that’s exactly what you get here. TR Fire Grill has become

a master of remixing and revolutionizing brunch classics like chicken and waffles. However, they also embrace the changing tides of brunch by including more diverse items like the Quinoa and Black Bean Burger, a vegetarianfriendly option with white American cheese, tomato jam, caramelized onions, greens, pickles and fries. But do yourself a solid and start things off with an order of Wonuts. Churro-lovers have a new addiction with the advent of these waffle/donut hybrids dipped in gooey chocolate. Whether you choose the Wonuts as a starter or a dessert, you can’t go wrong. Or, if we may be so bold, go with the Wonuts as an appetizer and dig into the Red Velvet Pancakes with sweet-as-can-be cream cheese frosting, bacon, seasonal fruit and maple syrup for dessert. TR Fire Grill also takes a tired old brunch item like eggs benedict and gives it a makeover with the Southwest Eggs Benedict. The bacon and black bean potato hash, roasted tomatoes, mashed avocado and jalapeño hollandaise on the Southwest Eggs Benedict provides a uniquely flavorful foundation for the perfectly poached eggs. If you roll on the more traditional side, go for the Classic Eggs

Chicken and Waffle Benedict which pairs poached eggs with Canadianstyle bacon, tomato and asparagus, roasted red peppers and jalapeño hollandaise on an English muffin. Also, for the localvores out there, TR Fire Grill, as a member of Fresh from Florida, gets all their eggs from Lake Meadow Naturals in

Ocoee, Fla. The ½ Pound Sunday Morning Burger is an absolute must for any bruncher who claims to “go hard.” The fried egg, cheese, hash browns and tomato jam come together on this burger in a sublime symphony of mid-morning/afternoongoodness. If you’re feeling green around the gills from last night’s escapades, we recommend getting a double order of fries. We can’t stop thinking about how perfectly, deliciously seasoned they were and how we wish we had a mountain of them every time we’re hung-over. If the upscale vibe, Winter Park location and well-versed menu sounds like it could be a hard on the wallet, worry not, friends. You can eat here well after payday. Each menu item falls in the $7-$16 price range, so it’s safe to say you can get out of here for under $25 per person, depending on how thirsty you are. Whether you’re in the suburbs or downtown Orlando, TR Fire Grill is the ideal brunch meetup. Its stylish decor, both inside and on the patio, is the perfect backdrop for a relaxed brunch with a group of friends or some family members. TR Fire Grill takes classic brunch items like the sangria and eggs benedict and effortlessly gives it a jolt of modern

COP OUT Instead of reviewing CHiPs, we take a look at the best cop shows available to stream BY T HA DDEUS MCCOL LU M

T

hough it might seem counterintuitive to some of our most dedicated Facebook commenters, there are few things more universally beloved in the Orlando Weekly offices than a good cop show. So when we discussed whether or not to review Dax Shepard’s new bigscreen adaptation of the classic ’70s-’80s buddy cop show CHiPs (in theaters Friday, March 24), the conversation inevitably turned to our favorite cop shows. What follows, then, is not an indictment of the CHiPs adaptation as much as a guide for other ways you could scratch your television police procedural itch if you were so inclined. Tough choices were made in the interest of space, and some favorites had to be dropped from the list due to imminent streaming rights expiration (The Shield) or nitpicking over whether a show about a private investigator is technically a cop show (The Rockford Files). Dragnet (1967) Probably the most important police procedural show in history, Dragnet got its start as a radio drama in 1949, followed by a longrunning television series that started in 1951. But it’s the 1967 revival that gets most of the attention. Series creator Jack Webb stars as LAPD detective Joe Friday, a no-nonsense gumshoe intent on getting to the facts of the case at hand. The 1967 series is notable for its depictions

of the youth counterculture of the time, kicking off its very first episode with a look at the dangers of LSD. Dragnet was revolutionary at the time, focusing on the nuts and bolts of police work in real-life cases where “only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.” (Streaming on Hulu) Hill Street Blues Sometimes overlooked by modern fans of the genre, Hill Street Blues is the series that put creator Steven Bochco (L.A. Law, NYPD Blue) on the map. Much of the modern language of television drama that we take for granted today – multi-episode story arcs, ensemble casts, handheld cameras – was pioneered in the show, giving it a modern feel despite its dated production values. Only the first three seasons are available on Hulu, but they still make for compulsive watching. (Seasons 1-3 streaming on Hulu) Miami Vice Though it has very little to do with actual police work, the impact of Miami Vice on the zeitgeist of the 1980s can’t be overstated. Taking a cue from the nascent MTV’s reputation for emphasizing style over substance, executive producer Michael Mann (later known for crime epics like Heat) incorporated a focus on fashion, action and pop music that was unlike anything that had been seen on television at the time. And while many of the

show’s plots fall apart under scrutiny, the enduring image of undercover detectives Crockett and Tubbs (Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas) can be seen whenever someone wears a pastel T-shirt under a white sportcoat to any ’80s-themed event. (Seasons 1-4 streaming on Hulu) Luther There’s little dispute among fans of police shows that the Brits are modern masters of the tropes of the cop drama, turning them on their head with complex, often deeply troubled, blue lives at the center. Though there are enough acclaimed English detective shows on Netflix to keep a reasonable television-watcher occupied for a full year, we picked Luther, starring everyone’s favorite head-canon James Bond, Idris Elba, as the best series for the uninitiated. But that doesn’t mean you should sleep on gems like Happy Valley, The Fall, Broadchurch, River, Wallander or Marcella – all of which are also on Netflix. (Series 1-4 streaming on Netflix) The Wire No list of best cop shows would be complete without HBO’s The Wire. Over five seasons, the show explored the problems with the institutions of a major American city, Baltimore, through the lens of a police show. Through The Wire, we learned how to run a drug ring, how to crack a pager code, what a longshoreman actually does, and why a nailgun is an important investment. HBO recently remastered the original series for high-definition TVs, so it’s as good a time as any to return to “Bawlmer” and see McNulty, Bunk, Bubs, Stringer Bell, Kima and the rest of the crew.

Saban’s Power Rangers BY ST EVE SCHNEIDER OPENING THIS WEEK CHiPs What worked for 21 Jump Street has

to work for Ponch and Jon … right? We’ll see based on the market reaction to this action-comedy remake of the ’70s TV series, in which our heroes in the California Highway Patrol have to bring down a dirty ex-cop who now leads a car theft ring. If I remember my gangsta rap correctly, this is hardly the most pressing issue surrounding Los Angeles law enforcement. And writer-director-star Dax Shepard didn’t exactly set the world on fire with his last film, 2012’s Hit and Run. Then again, he only co-directed that one, and I’m one of the few people in the world who’s always up for a viewing of Let’s Go to Prison. So maybe I’ll end up among the elite group of folks who download this thing legally? Added inducement: The supporting cast includes Ed Begley Jr. as “WASP driver.” (R) Life Somehow, Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan

Reynolds ended up in this apparent Alien wannabe about crew members on the International Space Station who have to fend off a malevolent Martian entity. Two years from now, you’ll watch the first 20 minutes of it on Reelz before you realize it isn’t Passengers. And then you’ll switch over to FX for the first episode of Feud: Reince and Steve. (R) Saban’s Power Rangers How to keep a release slate straight in your mind: Of the 6,000 seemingly identical sci-fi flicks you had to sit through trailers for when you saw Dr. Strange, this one distinguished itself by being by far the shittiest-looking. Not only is it yet another reboot of a franchise that was a pure Japanese fire sale in the first place, but now the titular heroes have been modernized in a most novel way: They were all bullied before they got their powers! Not as bullied as they’re going to be when the reviews come in, I’d wager, despite the presence of slumming co-stars Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks.

This time, it’s Woody Harrelson who gets the privilege of hauling himself around the frame and inveighing against all of the indignities and indecencies of modern life. Some reviewers are already declaring that Clowes’ contrarian scenarios are starting to feel forced and out of step with 21st-century sensibilities. That’s probably pretty alarming if you consider Variety and The Hollywood Reporter your last line of defense against fustiness.

One of the more emergent and

promising new promoters bubbling up in the city recently, Ugly Orange has been putting together some notable bills that gather and – most importantly, in my opinion – sometimes even uncover new music talent worth discovering in both the area and the indie touring circuit.

WELZEINS, TV DINNER AND DONKNG, WILL’S PUB, MARCH 15

TV Dinner is a new local twee-pop band that I’ve now seen two weeks in a row, first at the Allison Crutchfield show and then at this recent Ugly Orange showcase. Widened slightly by a keyboard dimension, their guitar pop is simple, tender, a little shaggy but melodically lovely – basically, what you want in a twee-pop band. The group’s still pretty embryonic but, with some more practice and seasoning, that loveliness will only become more defined. Also playing was young Gainesville band DONKNG. Their recordings suggest slacked-out indie rock with more than a passing resemblance to the Strokes, especially with singer Camilo Isaza’s lazycool Julian Casablancas drawl. But even though there’s still all that promised economy, tune and jangle, they’re more varied and nuanced live with some post-rock airs and restless undercurrents. Even though they were the earliest to play, the night’s biggest rockers were the Welzeins. Able to deftly handle garage, punk, surf and heavy rock, the Orlando duo are one of the city’s more prismatic two-piece bands. But this show was a reminder that they’re also one of the best and most proficient, now with more

confidence and kick than ever. Still, they remain criminally overlooked. Besides pacing that was overly leisurely for a weeknight show (the four-band bill was barely past the midway point at midnight), the event did demonstrate what Ugly Orange does well: showcase promising young talent. Ugly Orange is doing some good work, and it’s an indie booking banner worth particular note.

HOCKEY DAD WITH YOU VANDAL AND CHRMNG, WILL’S PUB, MARCH 12

Having ripped one of the most immediate and incandescent albums of 2016 with Boronia, young duo Hockey Dad are one of the brightest new stars in an already esteemed Kanine Records galaxy. Like the coastal Australian sand from whence they sprung, their music is endless summer put to tape. There’s some modern beach-punk bounce in Hockey Dad’s DNA, which their raw two-piece live setup made salient at their Orlando debut. But that latest record proves that their shimmering fuzz-rock is an impossibly likable marriage of tex-

ture, vigor and melody, like Surfer Blood jacked with the octane of Japandroids. Far greater than any of their stylistic markers, however, is the brilliant pop facility of their music, which filled that debut album with melodies that strike perfection with stunning frequency. Unfortunately, some of their truly exceptional melodic work gets lost in the crank and economy of their basic live arrangement. But just watch drummer Billy Fleming bang the drums like Animal from the Muppets and you’ll see – nothing dims the spirit that propels them. The turnout for their Orlando debut was respectable but not blockbusting. The part that’s most telling about their appeal and promise, though, is that people were singing along and losing their shit. Gainesville opener You Vandal deal in the kind of emo that, thank god, is more about anthem and drive than melodrama. With a turbo sound that paints its heart in big Jimmy Eat World-sized strokes, they’re one of the most charging bands of their ilk around here. What to say about the vowel-averse CHRMNG? Not even a full minute into their set and the singer was already calling for everyone to move up close to the stage and put a hand in the air. That’s a lot of audience participation to demand from the jump, and it only works when you’re a rap act or are already a star. They are neither. It was contrived and gauche. Even more unfortunate, the same can be said of not just that moment but most of what this band is. Between their pop affectation, wobbly performance and the cheese they mistake for charm, it’s something that wants very badly to be but just is not. baolehuu@orlandoweekly.com orlandoweekly.com

Thursday, 23 Local Music Merch Swap

Saturday, 25 Secret Boyfriend

EVENTS

MUSIC

It’s an unfortunate fact, but many local bands don’t end up recouping their investment when they shell out their own money to have T-shirts or CDs made. The possible reasons are plentiful: Maybe the band broke up; maybe the minimum order was larger than their fanbase; maybe there was a mastering problem and the record sounded like crap. A lot of merch ends up sitting in boxes in garages all over town, waiting to be pulled out for nostalgia’s sake. Or, if we’re lucky, it gets spread out on a table at a merch swap like this and local scene enthusiasts get to take what they want for free. It’s a one-stop shop for fans who want to learn more about Orlando’s musical past – or just want to pick up another copy of that CD they lost years ago. Most of the merch will be free to anyone who wants it, though some sellers may want to charge for some of the rarer items on display. Stick around to hear plenty of tales of “back in the day,” as well as to take in performances by the Pizza Brothers, Bob Hershberger of Bob on Blonde, and Mikey Cortes doing a solo Summer Spiders set. – Thaddeus McCollum

North Carolina’s Ryan Martin is one of the more important figures in the U.S. post-noise/experimental music underground. The Carrboro resident not only organizes the annual Savage Weekend event – a festival devoted to noise and outsider sounds with an energizing dose of adventurous performance art – but he also runs the well-curated Hot Releases label, an outlet for the likes of Russian Tsarlag, Housefire, Lack and Unicorn Hard-On. Equally as important – if not more so – is the ever-evolving work he does as Secret Boyfriend, a prolific solo performing/recording concern since 2008. Starting out as an almost noise/Sebadoh hybrid, Secret Boyfriend’s music has transformed into a thing of uncommon, alien and fragile beauty, with an outpouring of home-recorded hymns that veer between ambient textures, primitive body music, and absolutely heartbreaking ballad sketches. Martin keeps a purposely hazy profile, releasing limited-run cassettes for the most part, and then two incredible LPs on equally cryptic label Blackest Ever Black, so this rare live Central Florida experience is a chance to slice through the fog of obscurity to witness the beating heart that guides the machines. – Matthew Moyer

Friday-Sunday, 24-26 Orlando Ballet: Masterworks DANCE

OUR PICKS FOR THE BEST EVENTS THIS WEEK

36

The twists and turns of critical opinion that works of art take as they age from brand-new to established classic are slippery indeed. Take Twyla Tharp’s Sinatra Suite, one of the masterworks presented by Orlando Ballet in this program. The choreographer made the dance on a set of Sinatra songs in 1982, well after the crooner had gone from fresh young hitmaker to elder statesman. At a 1983 concert, Ol’ Blue Eyes himself compared “Strangers in the Night,” one of the songs in Tharp’s Suite, to pineapple yogurt (i.e., sickly-sweet and lacking edge). Yet Tharp’s treatment took a song that was in the lame trough between new and classic, fusing it with modern movement and restarting its 15 minutes of cool. Perhaps inevitably, by the ’90s, Sinatra Suite was itself being called clichéd. However, following that well-trod path, Tharp’s loose-limbed pop paeans are again being hailed as challenging chefs d’oeuvre, just as Sinatra’s boozy ballads are said to have set the standard for noir masculinity. All of which is a long-winded way of saying that everything old is eventually new again, and wine’s not the only thing that improves with age: Also on the program are Serenade, with choreography by George Balanchine and music by Tchaikovsky, and Fancy Free, with choreography by Jerome Robbins and music by Leonard Bernstein. – Jessica Bryce Young 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday | Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S.

Monday, 27 Cherry Glazerr MUSIC

They’re actually named after a real person (a vamped-up riff on SoCal NPR morning anchor Chery Glaser), and they’re the brainchild of 19-year-old rocker Clementine Creevy, whose own name is almost as evocative. Most importantly, this Los Angeles band is on the rise. With gathering momentum and music that pumps with young feminist pulse (a dollar of each ticket sold goes to Planned Parenthood), they’re resembling a nascent juggernaut. In the few years since forming in high school, they’ve already gone from an open-ended garage-punk act on Burger Records to a heftier, more pointed rock band with their new album on Secretly Canadian, Apocalipstick. But with the added worth of the textured, angular dream of Hardly Art band Ian Sweet and the perfectly moody bummer punk of Chicago’s Lala Lala, this is one of those loaded bills worth the whole ride. – Bao Le-Huu with Ian Sweet, Lala Lala | 7 p.m. | The Social, 54 N.

Monday, 27 Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds: The Final Performances

Tuesday, 28 Science on Screen: Pi

MUSIC

If you’re fully vested in the Beach Boys Pet Sounds album, witnessing a re-creation is a gamble. The 1966 offering was one of the first of that era in which a few striving pop artists attempted to elevate all songs on the LP format to holistic parity, rather than polishing up singles as individual entities. Pet Sounds – the 14-song original ending with “Caroline, No,” digital consumers, not the sprawling reissue – is now viewed as canonized. Its tales of profound YA confusion, translated through Brian Wilson’s brilliant pet orchestration concepts, create an unintentional illusory parallel to all of mid-1960s pop music. It’s been 17 years since the Wondermints (a band of passionate ’60s pop fans) first backed Brian Wilson to attempt the impossible – a live version of this tract of artisanal imperfections turned neo-cosmic alignment – and those dates raised the arm hairs of the skeptics. This time, original band members Blondie Chaplin and Al Jardine (one of the original vocal timbres squaring the circle) are onboard as well. The first set, leading up to the full Pet Sounds hearing, offers deep cuts for the super-fans; the encore has the golden oldies salve for any philistines in tow. Take the gamble. – Matt Gorney 8 p.m. | Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $35-$95

Tuesday, 28 Science Friday LEARNING

That radio voice that lures you into wanting to know more about the bacteria on Mars or how Tuvan throat singing works? It belong to Ira Flatow, the host of NPR’s Science Friday, which is coming this week to Orlando for a special taping focused on engineering the future. Flatow and the audience will get to explore cool inventions, like bionic prosthetic devices that use electrical impulses to move, and resource-sniffing robotic “ants.” There will also be battling robots built by young engineers and a panel with Jackie Quinn and Rob Mueller of NASA’s Kennedy Space Center to talk about turning moon dust into necessities for astronauts that are hard to send into space, like water, bricks and rocket fuel. Tickets are $45, but for a little extra cash, you can meet the radio legend himself. – Monivette Cordeiro 7:30 p.m. | Bob Carr Theater, 401 W. Livingston St. | wmfe.org | $45-$65

FILM

For those science-minded intelligentsia (read: nerds) who are wondering: Yes, if you try really hard, you should be able to catch both Science Friday and this special screening of Darren Aronofsky’s directorial debut, Pi. The black-and-white feature, which follows a mathematician who discovers secret information buried within the pattern of large numbers, put Aronofsky on the map for its disarming visual style, its creeping sense of paranoia and a standout soundtrack from former Pop Will Eat Itself frontman Clint Mansell. Enzian brings in UCF math professor Barry Griffiths and Rabbi Sholom Dubrov to really drill down into the themes of mathematics and Judaic mysticism that permeate Pi in a post-film discussion. – TM 9:30 p.m. | Enzian Theater, 1300 S. Orlando Ave., Maitland | 407-629-0054 | enzian.org | $8

Weedeater MUSIC

Hailing from Cape Fear (we shit you not), North Carolina, the doom metal trio Weedeater first came to our attention via the name and CV of frontman/bassist Dixie Collins. Collins’ past projects include tar-huffers like Sourvein and Bongzilla, but most importantly the violent and self-immolative sludge outfit Buzzoven, whom we once saw open for GWAR and render GWAR’s haunted house theatrics obsolete by being covered in their own actual blood by the end of their set, and who imploded in a splatter of drugs and recrimination. And yet, Weedeater, despite their own share of self-loathing, physical injury and drug issues, have now been a going, functional unit for more than 17 years and five albums. Newest album Goliathan is their most focused statement yet, bringing in mad scientist engineer Steve Albini to distill their agonized deep Southern gothic sludge down to its purest essence. Weedeater incorporate elements of suicidal country and blues into their “weed metal” template, as well as the vibes of a lifetime spent pushing everything to the absolute limit. Live, they are equal parts unpredictable and undeniable. Get slow. – Matthew Moyer with ASG, Hollow Leg, Ad Nauseum | 8 p.m. | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $15-$18

“CURIOUS MINDS”

B Y D A N S AVA G E

Are you looking for a new pal? Meet Bandana!

I recently spoke at the Curious Minds Weekend in Toronto at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema. Audience members submitted questions on cards before the show – anonymously – but the moderator, Lisan Jutras of the Globe and Mail, and I were having so much fun talking with each other that we didn’t get to many cards. So I’m going to quickly answer as many of the questions from the audience at Curious Minds as I can this week. My husband and I have been seeking a third for a threesome. After a very palpable night of flirtation, I asked a mutual friend (as we shared a cab) if he would be down for a threesome. He said yes, but I was not about to spring him on my husband that night. So I texted him later about it, and he has ignored me. What should I take from this? The hint.

Meet Bandana (A372568), a 6-year-old sweetheart looking for a new home! He was found as a stray and has been at our shelter since March 16. OCAS volunteers say that he loves attention and would make a great family dog. For the month of March, all animals at OCAS are $5, $10 or $15 under our Luck of the Paw promotion. Pick a gold coin to determine your fee! Fees include sterilization, vaccinations and a microchip. Orange County Animal Services is located at 2769 Conroy Road, near the Mall at Millenia. The shelter is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call 407836-3111 or visit ocnetpets.com.

A friend’s BF won’t go down on her no matter how much she asks. She still won’t break up with him, even though she told me that oral is the only way she has ever had an orgasm. How do I get her to realize her sexual pleasure is a priority? If your friend’s BF doesn’t know oral is the only way she can orgasm, she should tell him. If she told him and he doesn’t care, she should dump him. If she told him and he doesn’t care and she won’t dump him, you’re not obligated to listen to her complain about the orgasms she’s not having. I’m a bisexual 42-year-old woman with an extremely high sex drive who squirts with every orgasm. How do I deal with friends – even people at a sex club – who think you’re a freak because “women aren’t supposed to be horny all the time.” If your friends – presumably people you aren’t fucking – complain that you’re horny all the time, maybe it’s because you don’t talk about anything other than the sex you just had or the sex you hope to have soon. If people at sex clubs are complaining about how horny you are … either you’ve accidentally wandered into a yacht club or even people at a sex club wanna talk about something other than sex every once in a while. My very Christian friend is about to get married. Though she is socially very liberal, she is pretty sexually repressed. I want to do something to encourage her to explore her sexuality a bit before she takes a try at partnered sex. How weird would it be to buy her a vibrator as a shower present? Don’t give your friend a vibrator at her shower – gifts are opened in front of guests at showers – but go ahead and send her one. Tell her it’s a pre-bachelorette-party gift.

Two guys divorced in order to bring a third man into their relationship on equal terms, and they now plan to start a family with their sisters acting as surrogates. Thoughts? Mazel tov? I am 31. My husband (newly married) is 46, almost 47. He takes FOREVER to come, no matter what I do. How do we speed up this process? My jaw, fingers, etc., are all very sore. Your husband speeds up the process by incorporating self-stimulation breaks into the blowjobs, handjobs, et cetera-jobs you’re giving him. He strokes himself while you take a quick breather and/or an Advil, he gets himself closer, you get back to work. I’m 47 and my wife is 31. I take a lot longer to come and recover than she would like. Could you please explain to her that it’s normal for a man my age to “slow down” and it’s not her? Happy birthday. And, yes, it’s normal for a man to slow down as he ages – it’s not her – and there are younger men who take a long time to come. But such men need to take their partners’ physical limitations into consideration. To avoid wearing out their partners’ jaws, fingers, etc., they need to take matters into their own hands. They should enjoy that blowjob, handjob, twatjob or assjob, take breaks to stroke their own dicks, eventually bring themselves to the point of orgasmic inevitability, and end by plunging back into that mouth, fist, twat or ass to blow their load. I have been reading your column since the early 1990s. Since that time, what has struck you in the kind of problems people write you about? People don’t ask me about butt plugs anymore. I used to get a letter once or twice a week from someone who needed to have butt plugs explained to them. But butt plugs have their own Wiki page now, so no one needs me to explain them anymore. For old times’ sake: They look like lava lamps, they go in your butt, they feel awesome and they typically don’t induce gay panic in butt-playcurious straight boys.

Polyamory after marriage – is it OK? For some. I’m a submissive gay boy. I saw you walk into the theater tonight wearing combat boots. Is there any way I could lick your boots clean after the show? Sadly, I didn’t see your question until after I got back to my hotel. Straight male here. My best male friend of 20 years transitioned to female. I’ve been super supportive since day one, but her transitioning is all she ever talks about, and it’s getting tiresome. I miss our discussions of bicycle repair and Swedish pop music. How can I tell her to give it a rest while remaining supportive? If she began transitioning last week, then of course it’s all she can talk about. If she transitioned five years ago and it’s still all she ever talks about, then you’ll need to (gently) be the change you want to see in the conversation. Listen supportively when she discusses trans issues and seize opportunities (when they arise) to change the subject (“So how do you think Sweden will do in Eurovision this year?”). Why are so many lesbians into astrology? All the lesbians I know are strict empiricists. So the more pertinent question would be this: Whose sample is skewed – mine or yours? My male partner never masturbates and we have sex only once a week. We’ve been together four years. I’m a woman. I would like to have sex just a little more, but he isn’t into it. Is there something weird about me masturbating a bunch during the week and just having weekend sex? Nope. Dude? Trump? WTF? ITMFA (ITMFA.org). On the Lovecast, Dan chats with Brian Whitney, co-author of a book about the “Cannibal Cop”: savagelovecast.com. mail@savagelove.net

Would you share your thoughts on our prime minister, Justin Trudeau? I think Justin needs to stop fucking around and legalize weed already, like he promised. When are you going to move to Canada already? See above.
